Amberjack's


great birding

he J.N. Ding Darling National
Wildlife Refuge attracts bird-
watchers from all over the
world. As beautiful as the refuge is,
it will take at least
a half-day with a
Minimum of two
hours spent in
j the car driving to
and from Sanibel
Island.
Myakka River
SV State Park also
S offers some of the
hris\ best bird-watching
Chrsy in the area, which
FEINBERG is why many
COLUMMST people flock there
as well.
But if you want to escape the
crowds of Myakka River State Park
and avoid driving to Sanibel, there is
a smaller park in the Englewood area
where bird-watchers can expect to
see a feathered show.
Amberjack Environmental Park
offers more than 200 acres of walking
trails and boardwalks leading to
Lemon Lake, where great blue her-
ons, egrets, ducks and others recently
frolicked together near a lounging
alligator.
Bird-watching has to be the best
activity at Amberjack Environmental
Park. I'm not a bird expert, nor an
ornithologist (such a fancy word),
but I spent quite a while bird watch-
ing and taking photos at one of the
boardwalks at Lemon Lake. Those
interested should bring binoculars.
Roseate spoonbills are known to
frequent the park.
Those more interested in walking
can find 5.5 miles of trails at the
park. There is a map on the Charlotte
County website indicating the trails
by color. Forget the map. The trails
aren't marked well so it's better just
to scrap the idea of following a map,
and instead go exploring. The trails
are wide with little-to-no human
traffic ... making it a great, peaceful
place for a stroll or a jog. There may
be, however, animal traffic.
While wandering around the park
recently, I heard a snort nearby. I
couldn't ascertain if it was an alli-
gator or a hog, and quite frankly,
I'm glad I didn't see the face behind
the snort or else my strange natural
instinct of stomping, dancing and
singing the Muppets' "Mahna Mahna"
may have surfaced once again in
public (this previously happened at
Charlotte Flatwoods Environmental
Park in South Charlotte County
and at Myakkahatchee Creek
Environmental Park in North Port).
I'm inclined to believe it was a hog
(probably a large, salivating, greasy
one with green horns and the at-
titude of a mother protecting her
bacon bits). Parts of a trail looked like
the Tasmanian Devil had been hiking,
turning up the dirt along the way as
hogs do in the wild. "Mahna Mahna."

and later expanded in 2004, is one

Foreclosures plummet


Annual area filings drop 37 percent in 2013


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER
Local real estate experts are ringing
in the new year with hope that last
year's major falloff in foreclosure
filings signals an even stronger
residential market in 2014.
The total of 1,302 new foreclosure
filings in Charlotte County in 2013 is
38 percent less than the 2,100 reported
in 2012. Moreover, while each of the
first six months of last year all saw
triple-digit foreclosure numbers, every
month in the second half of 2013 post-
ed new foreclosures in double digits.


PHOTOS PROVIDED

instructor for Expedition Survival,
a program available free to local
youth through the National Youth
Pathfinders Organization. Children
ages 8 to 17 are taken through the
wilderness and taught about how
to live in nature. Jackson taught
the courses last year, but they have
been revamped for 2014. The new
classes begin Saturday.



Below: Alicia Jackson, 16, learns to
start a fire during an outing last
year with Expedition Survival in
Charlotte County. The program -
which takes students on guided
expeditions into Florida's wilder-
ness to teach survival skills is
offered free to children ages 8 to
17 through the National Youth
Pathfinder Organization.


"I think we're finally going through
the bottom third of the foreclosure
market," said Debra Peters, broker/
owner of RE/MAX Anchor Realty in
Punta Gorda.
The Charlotte County Clerk of
Courts office reported 77 new fore-
closure filings in December, up from
66 foreclosures in November. However
this slight increase in month-to-
month figures goes against the general
trend.
In Sarasota County, there were 210
new foreclosure filings reported in
November, but only 183 last month, a
nearly 13 percent drop. The total for


Sarasota in 2013 was 2,948 down
about 36 percent from 2012's whop-
ping 4,628.
The year-over-year comparisons,
which are less likely to be affected by
seasonal fluctuations in the market,
show a strong overall trend, with the
numbers for Sarasota and Charlotte
combined amounting to a nearly
37 percent drop in area foreclosures
from 2012 to 2013.
In Charlotte County, the volume of
lis pendens has dropped markedly
since the height of the recession, from

Program offers kids

taste of outdoors


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
Kevin Jackson born
and raised in Port
Charlotte spent a lot
of time as a kid "just
running around in the
woods in Arcadia" and
playing outside.
As he got older, he
learned to appreciate
the outdoors even
more. The 35-year-
old has spent a week
living off the land in the
Everglades, was trained
to survive freezing
temperatures in Ohio's
wilderness, and com-
pleted a 28-day hike over


the Andes Mountains in
Ecuador.
"I just want to share
those experiences with
people, especially kids
because they play so
many video games and
things nowadays," said
Jackson.
That's why he's volun-
teering his time as lead-
er of Expedition Survival
- the local chapter of
the National Pathfinder
Youth Organization.
Expedition Survival
offers various levels of
outdoor survival courses
to people of all ages.

Former Charlotte commissioner dies


By BILL JONES
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Dr. Paul Monroe, 66, former
chairman of the Charlotte County
Commission, died Monday afternoon
at his home in Ebeemee, in the back-
woods of Maine.
According to former county commis-
sioner Paul Holt, Monroe passed away
watching TV late Monday afternoon.
"It was quite a shock," Holt said
Tuesday. "He was probably my best
friend. I talked with him about
4 o'clock. He seemed fine. I was prob-
ably the last one he talked to before he
died."
Monroe was found by his wife


Janean, who returned home after
struggling unsuccessfully to get her
children and grandchildren out of the
frigid Bangor airport on their way back
to Chicago.
The cause of death was not immedi-
ately known.
Monroe, an optometrist with a
practice in Punta Gorda, served
on the Punta Gorda City Council
before defeating Dana Carr for the
seat being vacated by then-County
Commission chairman Dr. Robert
Shedd in 1982. A Republican, Monroe
served as chairman in 1985-86, before
leaving the commission at the end
of his term in 1986. He ran for the
Florida House of Representatives in


2002, but was defeated.
One of his many accomplishments,
according to Holt, was bringing the
Texas Rangers to their spring training
site in Port Charlotte, now the home of
the Tampa Bay Rays.
Holt said Monroe sold his Punta
Gorda practice, packed up, and headed
to Maine in 2006, to live in the woods
and pursue his love of mountain climb-
ing. Climbing Maine's Mount Katahdin
proved to be no problem, Holt said,
since Monroe and his wife already had
scaled Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania,
Africa's highest mountain and the
highest freestanding mountain in the

A river of time to find a name


ood day to all
and Happy New
Year.
Did you know, of the
two rivers emptying
into Charlotte Harbor,
it took the longest to
settle on a name for the
longest? The Myakka
flows south from near
the Hardee-Manatee
county line for 68 miles
and drains 235 square
miles. The Peace begins
northeast of Bartow,
traveling 106 miles to
Charlotte Harbor. Its
drainage basin is 1,367
square miles.
As we know, Bernard
Romans was commis-
sioned by King George
III to map Great Britain's
newly acquired Florida
territory in the early
1770s, and although
not the "discoverer" as
he claimed, gave our


harbor the name that
stuck.
His early map of
Charlotte Harbor re-
flects both rivers, noting
they were also discov-
ered by the author. The
more westerly is named
New Creek; the longer,
Charlotte River, obvi-
ously a continuation of
the harbor's name.
By 1822, Florida had
become a U.S. territory.
The Carey and Lee Atlas
contained a map with
the Myakka unnamed


and the Peace reflected
still as the Charlotte
River. Shortly thereafter,
"Asternal," with a "long"
A, appears on maps
identifying the smaller
river.
It is a medical term
for ribs not connected
to the sternum (breast
bone). Your guess is
as good as mine how
someone came up with
that, but maps did
not depict the Myakka
flowing from any other
body of water. Perhaps
not being "connected"
led to the name.
By 1833, although
its "sister" river was
still the Asternal, the
longer river appears
on maps as the "Pease
or Talakchopco River."
Talakchopco is from
the Creek language and
means "long peas." The


name seems fitting, due
to wild peas with del-
icate yellow blossoms
abundant on the river's
banks and those of its
tributaries.
Bradford's Atlas,
published in 1841 near
the end of the Second
Seminole War, shows
the rivers as Pease Creek
and Asternal. Pease
Creek generally divided
the "Indian Reserve"
established after the
First Seminole War,
which covered most of
the peninsula's interior
from just north of
today's Tarpon Springs
south to a line run-
ning east from today's
Shell Creek, which
by then had become
the Charlotte River.
The Second Seminole
War resulted in the
reserve's relocation to


Southwest Florida, with
Pease Creek forming its
northwestern border.
A U.S. Coastal Survey
map 10 years later
shows the larger river
both as the Talakchopco
and Peas River, but the
Asternal had become
the Myakka. It's believed
the name came from the
indigenous Mayaca who
lived in north Florida
along the St. John's
River when the Spanish
arrived. However, it's
unclear how that name
became associated with
a river in Southwest
Florida centuries later.
An 1856 military
map, ordered by
then Secretary of War
Jefferson Davis, depicts
the rivers as the Myakka
and "Talakchopco-
Hatchee or Peas Creek."
Although subsequent


maps seem to stick with
Myakka, the longer river
continues to appear as
"Peace or Pease River."
By 1910, the
Encyclopedia Britannica
reflected only Peace
River as the name, but
Myakka was shown as
Miakka. So, although
there was a slight
variation in spelling, it
appears cartographers
settled on the shorter
river's name decades
before our "Rio de Paz"
became the Peace for
good.
Don't forget about
the Historical Center's
current exhibit, Beaches,
Creatures, & Cowboys:
Florida Movie Posters,
open through January.
The Historical Center
is located at 22959
Bayshore Road in histor-
ic Charlotte Harbor.

City out to step up marketing efforts


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER
For years, the City of
Punta Gorda has relied on
word-of-mouth and the
occasional magazine cover
to promote itself.
Now, hoping to stand
alongside world-class
destinations like Telluride,
Colo., and Sparks, Nev.,
city officials say it's time
for Punta Gorda to step
up its marketing efforts if
it wants to attract the kind
of tourism and investment
that will transform this city
from a seasonal snowbird
community to a year-
round destination.
DottiVaivoda, a member
of the One Community,
One Message committee
established to develop the


city's uniform branding
message, presented City
Council members recently
with a sleek, multipage col-
or brochure that promotes
Punta Gorda as the Best
Small City in America with
the best fishing, sailing,
outdoor recreation and
lifestyle around.
'As many of you know,
the city has won many,
many contests," Vaivoda
said. "We're the best sailing
location, we're the best
place to retire (according
to a) number of maga-
zines, and we have the
best tarpon fishing. So the
goals and objectives of the
brochure (are) to highlight
the assets of our beautiful
city using the 'best of'
concept."
The brochure, which


features a photo of a
breathtaking sunset on
the cover, highlights
the city's major assets,
including boating and
sailing, fishing, outdoor
recreation, bicycle-friendly
pathways, dining, arts and
entertainment.
The brochure will be dis-
tributed to the Chamber of
Commerce, the Downtown
Merchants Association,
local Realtor groups, travel
operators and tourism
groups across the state
once the piece is printed.
Patti Allen, general
manager of Fishermen's
Village, said her market-
ing team will distribute
brochures at trade shows,
events and functions that
Fishermen's Village partic-
ipates in to help promote


Punta Gorda.
"We need to bridge that
gap between season and
nonseason," Allen told City
Council members. "I think
it's imperative that you
start considering putting
together a marketing line
item in your budget. I
think those communities
that do that continue to be
successful."
City Councilwoman
Kim Devine agreed, adding
the city's online presence
needs to be updated as
well.
The objective of the bro-
chure, Devine said, is not
only to highlight the city's
attractions but to drive vis-
itors to the website, which
is not currently in line with
the One Community, One
Message vision.


"The brochure will
direct folks to the website,
which should look like the
brochure," she said. "The
photos in the brochure
should be used throughout
the website so that there
is a consistent marketing
message."
Devine asked the
council for seed money
to update the city site so
that it too can be used as
a marketing tool to attract
visitors.
City Councilwoman
Nancy Prafke supported
the idea of updating the
city' website. She pointed
to the towns of Telluride,
Colo., and Sparks, Nev., as
examples of what could be
done.
"It's not to say that our
website is bad," Pralke


said. "It's not. It's very func-
tional. But it's a govern-
ment website. We want it
to be more welcoming. So
when you're coming to the
city of Punta Gorda just to
find information, we really
want it to inspire people."
Mayor Rachel Keesling
agreed.
"I like the idea of spruc-
ing up the city's website,"
she said. "It's a win-win for
everybody for the busi-
nesses, for the community,
for the organizations, for
the city. It doesn't really
have a downside."
The City Council direct-
ed staff to come up with
a few proposals for the
website and bring it back
for further discussion.

Business Expo will be held


Feb. 6 from 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. at the Event Center.
Last year more than 1,500
people came face-to-face
with our 100 exhibitor
members and learned
about their products and
services. And the exhib-
itors had great face time
with the other exhibitors
during the special break-
fast, throughout the day
and at the after-hours
party.
The contacts made in
that one day are invaluable
and noted in these testi-
monials: "Great Expo! Lots
of great networking today
and exposure for AllPro!


Thank you!" "I can't explain
the amount of business
generated at the expo, with
old friends and contacts,
as well as new. If you only
do one Expo make sure
it's this one!" (JD's Bistro/
Days Inn). "We were able
to meet with dozens of
existing and potential
clients throughout the day.
Great opportunity for any
business" (Charlotte Sun).
We still have some booth
space available, so call
the Port Charlotte office
941-627-2222 to register. Be
there.
We are busy greeting
We are busy greeting


winter residents and

Nurses' union opposes buyout


By PAUL FALLON
SUN CORRESPONDENT

A national nurses
union opposes a mul-
tibillion-dollar merger
between two health care
companies that would
impact hospitals in
Southwest Florida, citing
concerns about costs to
patients.
Community Health
Services is planning a
$7.6 billion buyout of
Naples-based Health
Management Associates,
which owns Bayfront
Health Punta Gorda,
formerly Charlotte
Regional Medical Center,
and Bayfront Health Port
Charlotte, formerly Peace
River Regional Medical
Center.
The two companies
each have three hospitals
on a list of the 10 most
expensive in the nation,
according to a study re-
leased by National Nurses
United, a national union
representing 185,000
nurses.
Community Health
Services already owns
Venice Regional Bayfront
Health, formerlyVenice
Regional Medical Center.
The union does not


have any members in
the three area hospitals.
The buyout, if approved
by Health Management
Associates shareholders
during a special meeting
today, would create the
largest hospital chain in
the nation, according to
the nurses' union.
Representatives from
Community Health
Services declined to
comment.
Representatives from
Bayfront Health Port
Charlotte did not return
calls seeking comment,
and a representative
from Bayfront Health
Punta Gorda referred all
questions to the parent
company.
Representatives from
Venice Regional Bayfront
Health also did not return
calls seeking comment.
"These are two health
care systems that have
a corporate strategy of
targeting hospitals in ru-
ral areas where residents
don't have many choices
when it comes to care,"
said Charles Idelson, a
spokesman for National
Nurses United. "What
happens when that hos-
pital decides to charge its
patients' inflated prices?"
Three of Community


Health Services' 135
hospitals are listed in the
top 10 most expensive
facilities in the country,
according to the study
released by the union.
They are North
Okaloosa Medical Center
in Crestview, Fla.,(4);
Gadsden Regional
Medical Center in
Gadsden, Ala., (5); and
Chestnut Hill Hospital in
Philadelphia, Pa., (9).
Health Management
Associates also has three
hospitals in the list of 10
most expensive, accord-
ing to the figures.
They are Paul B. Hall
Regional Medical Center
in Paintsville, Ky., (2);
Brooksville Regional
Hospital in Brooksville,
Fla., (7); and Heart of
Florida Regional Medical
Center in Davenport, Fla.,
(8).
Meadowlands Hospital
Medical Center in
Secaucus, N.J., owned
by MHA, is the most
expensive hospital in the
nation, according to the
study.
National Nurses
United's research arm, the
Institute for Health and
Socio-Economic Policy,
conducted the study
using publicly available


Medicare Cost Reports as
of June 2013.
Idelson believes that
two health care systems
owning six of the 10 most
expensive hospitals in the
country show they are
more dedicated to profit
than providing patient
care.
"Profit shouldn't take
precedence over pa-
tients," Idelson said.
Idelson contends that
Community Health
Services is known for
cutting programs in order
to increase profits.
Veronica Poss, a
registered nurse at
Fallbrook Hospital in
Fallbrook, Calif., agreed
with Idelson.
Poss is a National
Nurses United member
and an employee of
Community Health
Services, which owns the
hospital.
The company recently
closed a cardiac reha-
bilitation center at the
hospital, she said.
"I think they closed it to
increase profits," she said.
National Nurses United
members will hold a
press conference to voice
their concerns today at
the Ritz-Carlton Golf
Resort in Naples at 8 a.m.


Orchestra, art center to join forces


PROVIDED BY
CHARLOTTE SYMPHONY
ORCHESTRA


The Charlotte
Symphony Orchestra will
perform Mussorgsky's
"Pictures at an
Exhibition" under the
baton of Maestro Raffaele
Ponti at its concert
Sunday at the Charlotte
Performing Arts Center.
In an exciting collab-
oration between the
orchestra and Punta
Gorda's Visual Arts
Center, concertgoers will
also have the opportunity
to enjoy an exhibition
of artwork by 10 of the
VAC's leading artists.
The doors will open at
6 p.m., with participating
artists identified with
name tags displaying


their works of art on
hand to talk with audi-
ence members before
the show and during
intermission. Some of the
artists will also talk about
their inspiration and
creative process in the
free pre-concert lecture at
6:30 p.m.
Mussorgsky was
inspired to compose
"Pictures at an
Exhibition" by a post-
humous exhibit of 10
paintings by his friend
Viktor Hartmann. Each of
the 10 movements of the
composition correspond
to a different Hartmann
painting, many of which
have been lost over time.
The VAC artists have, in
turn, created artwork
inspired by the music.
"Art and music have in-
fluenced and catapulted


each other throughout
history," said Ponti. "The
orchestra is excited to
have the opportunity to
show our audience the
interrelationship between
art and music in action."
Participating artists
will also speak at Ponti's
Behind the Notes talk
at FGCU's Renaissance
Arcade on Thursday from
2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Following the concert,
the exhibition will move
to the offices of the
Charlotte Symphony
Orchestra at 6210 Scott
St. in Punta Gorda. The
works will be on display
from Jan. to Feb. 18.
The artists partici-
pating in the exhibition
are Barbara Albin,
Brenda Berdnik, Joy
Carol, Thelma Daida,
Liz Hutchinson-Sperry,

UM agrees to donate Little Salt Spring


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

NORTH PORT -The
University of Miami's
board of trustees has
approved the donation
of the Little Salt Spring
property in North Port
to Sarasota County for
inclusion in the coun-
ty's Environmentally
Sensitive Land Acquisition
program.
For the last few months,
negotiations have been
ongoing between UM
and the county for the
acquisition of Little
Salt, an archaeologically
significant, 112-acre site
with a 220-foot-deep
sinkhole located off Price
Boulevard near Glenallen
Elementary School.
County Commissioners
voted 3-2 in October to
offer to take on the Spring
"as-is" as a deed transfer,
meaning the county
would pay for the removal
of old trailers that were
used by the university on
the site, and other mainte-
nance costs.
"The university is
delighted to donate
this unique property to
Sarasota County... (with
the) commitment to
continue to use (it) as a
geological, archaeological
and ecological preserve
for future generations of
Floridians," UM Assistant
General Council Maria
Gralia said in an email.
The Spring, which is not
accessible to the public,
has served as an educa-
tional research facility


since it was acquired by
UM in 1980. No artifact
discovered at the Spring is
younger than 5,000 years
old, and some are close to
12,000 years old. In 2011,
a piece of deer antler
attached to a 10,000-year-
old short spear, called an
atlatl, was discovered by
divers. The site was added
to the National Register of
Historic Places in 1979.
The land has been
appraised at $2.11 million,
with the 38-acre sinkhole
that's a consistent 75
degrees bearing the bulk
of the value. Records show
General Development
Corp. deeded the Little
Salt property to UM in
1980. County commis-
sioners had been hopeful
a similar transaction
would take place.
"I'm very pleased that
the University of Miami
saw that this was not the
traditional real estate
transaction and they
understood that they
were passing on an asset
that has environmental
qualities to it and not just
a typical real estate asset,"
Commissioner Christine
Robinson said Monday.
Robinson said the
county knows it will be
taking on some finan-
cial responsibilities in
acquiring the land. UM
Assistant General Gralia
said previously that UM
spends about $100,000
per year to maintain the
property, which included
former research assistant
Steve Koski's salary. It was
not known Monday if the


county will retain Koski.
"We're going to have
to go in and evaluate the
situation," Robinson said.
News of UM's decision
to donate the property
delighted the Friends of
Little Salt Spring, which
serves as a local support
group for UM's Little Salt
Spring Archaeological and
Ecological Preserve and
works with the site man-
ager to provide volunteer
opportunities where
needed in regard to site
stewardship, land man-
agement, maintenance,
research, public outreach
and local fundraising
efforts. Friends president
Lawry Reid said Monday
that the group, which


currently has about 125
members, would offer its
assistance to the county
during the transition.
"This is absolutely
wonderful and very
exciting news," Reid said
when he learned of the
deal. "The Friends will
be looking forward to
having discussions with
the county as to how we
can help. We are tremen-
dously committed to the
extraordinary possibilities
that Little Salt Spring gives
the county, and we want
to do everything we can to
facilitate so that activities
can resume at the Spring
as early as possible."

Shelters stay open for Arctic blast


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER

With wind chills
predicted to fall into the
upper 20s for a second
straight night, emergency
shelters throughout the
area were expected to
reopen Tuesday at 6 p.m.
Monday night, St.
David's Episcopal
Church, 401 S. Broadway,
Englewood, welcomed five
people when the Jubilee
Center opened at 6 p.m.
"If the wind wasn't
blowing, you could

of five environmental
parks in Charlotte
County (six if you
count the two areas of
Tippecanoe). The coun-
ty also maintains five
preserve areas, which
are described as:
"Preserves are
generally larger envi-
ronmental parcels with
less urban interface
and sensitive environ-
mental habitats that
are important to the
community and are the
guiding influence for
management," states
the county's website.
"Management of
preserves will focus on
environmental preser-
vation and resources
first and foremost with
more intensive manage-
ment and monitoring.
Preserves have limited
public use, less pro-
gramming, and less
structures/ amenities."
Residents and visi-
tors are more likely to


cut right through you,"
center director Pat Knox
said. "We gave them a hot
dinner and most of them
were down and in their
cots by 9 o'clock."
Folks also received
warm clothes, if they
needed them, from the
shelter's clothing closet,
as well as breakfast in
the morning and three
sandwiches each to take
with them, courtesy of the
Lemon Bay Garden Club.
"They had a luncheon
and brought them over to
us, which was a perfect
time," she said.


Alecia Cunningham,
senior case manager of
the Charlotte County
Homeless Coalition, said
the 52-bed shelter on
Monday took in a dozen
people who slept on cots
in the cafeteria. Besides
dinner and breakfast,
those seeking shelter
from the frigid tempera-
tures received blankets
and jackets brought by
donors to the facility at
1476 Kenesaw St., Port
Charlotte.
"We might get more
people tonight, de-
pending on how cold it


gets," Cunningham said
Tuesday, explaining the
shelter typically opens up
to the public on an emer-
gency basis one to three
times each winter due to
extreme arctic blasts, such
as this week's polar vortex.
The outlook for
Charlotte County on
Tuesday night was for still
breezy conditions along
the coast, with winds
diminishing to 10 mph
inland and tempera-
tures falling to around
38, according to the
NationalWeather Service.
Meteorologist Paul Close


said another wind chill
advisory would probably
be issued for Tuesday
night, when the wind chill
would drop into the upper
20s or low 30s.
The cold snap will
lift today, with the high
expected to reach the
lower 70s with moderate
overnight temperatures,
Close said.
Wayne Sallade,
Charlotte County Office of
Emergency Management
director, said there have
been no reported weath-
er-related emergencies
due to the cold. In fact,


The Salvation Army
shelter at 2120 Loveland
Blvd., in Port Charlotte,
remained empty Monday
night.
"They stayed open all
night and no one availed
themselves of it," Sallade
said. "All we can do is
offer."
Although the numbers
receiving assistance aren't
high, Knox said shelters
are intended for anyone
who needs them.
"If you can help one
person, it's worth being
open," she said.

visit one of the county's
environmental parks,
such as Amberjack.
"Environmental parks
are typically smaller in
size than a preserve,
have more urban
interface, and may
have some sensitive
environmental habitats
that are less important
to the guiding influence
of management," states
the county's website.
"Management will focus
not only on environ-
mental preservation,


but will also manage
the natural resources
from a human dimen-
sion. There may less
intensive management
and monitoring in an
environmental park;
however there will be
more public use, more
programming, more
interpretive features,
amenities and multi-use
trails."
The county offers sev-
eral educational walks
at Amberjack. One walk
is specifically geared
for bird-watchers while
the other is designed
for those interested in
other areas of nature.
Upcoming guided
walks are scheduled as
follows:
Tuesday: Birding
walk at 8 a.m.


Feb. 2: General
flora and fauna walk at
9 a.m.
Feb. 11: Birding walk
at 8 a.m.

March 11: Birding

pation in the National Flood Insur-
ance Program. For more infor-

Sue McNamara, center and two volunteers hold a check
signifying a $1,018.74 contribution to Meals on Wheels. The
money was raised through a community rummage sale.


Nurse and her


posse help


worthwhile causes


ue McNamara is a
study in what one
woman can do.
With a big heart
and even bigger
sense of purpose, the
Englewood woman has
been doing good deeds
in the community for
decades.
Quietly, and com-
pletely without fanfare,
she's been a major
force in helping people
in need.
When she wants to
tackle major projects,
she has a strategy:
recruit a posse.
"I have a lot of family
and friends who are
always ready to help
a worthy cause," she
says.
Her most recent wor-
thy cause was Meals on
Wheels.
"I like what they do
because they help the
elderly and the home-
bound people who
don't have anyone to
bring them good meals
every day," Sue says.
As a home health
care nurse for Doctors
Choice, she sees first
hand the importance
of Meals on Wheels.
In appreciation
for what it does for
the elderly, Sue and
her posse just raised
$1,018.74 for the local
organization by staging
a gigantic flea market.
While they've been
doing this for seven
years, this year set a
record.
Always fast to give
credit to others, Sue
says, "So many people
in the community
pitched in to help,
including drivers and
volunteers at Meals on
Wheels," Sue says.
"Before the rummage
sale we stored every-
thing in garages at Mac
Home Services and it
was quite impressive to
see what was donated.
I am so grateful to
everyone for all their
help," she adds.
While she credits
her faithful family and
friends for being an
invaluable part of her
volunteer posse, her
number one recruit is
always her husband,
Larry.
"He does so much for
every project. If I didn't
have him, I couldn't
do it. He had a leg that
is completely without
feeling but that doesn't
stop him from being
a workhorse when we
need one," she says.
While she is always
willing and able to help
any worthy cause, Sue
admits she is especially
drawn to helping the
elderly. Well suited to
her home health care
nursing job that has
her working with many
elderly people, she
says she finds them
"absolute treasures."


"Talk to any senior
citizen and you will
hear interesting stories
from a generation that
had so many skills lost
to us now," she adds.
In addition to raising
money for Meals on
Wheels, Sue and her
husband helped put on
a Christmas party at
Grove City Manor and
donated gifts for each
resident in the low-
income retirement
home.
"Many people in
the community made
Christmas better for
128 seniors in our
community by donat-
ing gifts for our giving
tree. They also helped
by giving over 400 cans
of nonperishable food
items for Englewood's
Helping Hands food
pantry.
"That's Englewood
for you," Sue says,
"Even in tough times
people are generous
and are willing to help
others. That's one of
the reasons we like
living here."
The next project
for Sue and Larry
McNamara will be
putting on the annual
hurricane awareness
program at Englewood
Methodist Church.
"Last year we had
200 people attend the
community service
program," she states.
With Christmas
not long behind us,
Sue is also starting
to plan her annual
summer project. For
the past 12 years, she
and Larry have been
staging Christmas in
July, playing Santa by
sprucing up the homes
of deserving older
residents.
They are joined in
their efforts by vol-
unteers that work in
the heat of summer to
pressure wash, paint,
and landscape to help
a senior citizen. Sue
says they always pick
someone to help who
has given back to the
community.
After each project
Sue says she and her
volunteers bask in the
satisfaction of helping
someone.
But not for long.
"Before you know
it," Sue says, "it's time
to go on to another
community service
project."

I OUR VIEW

Smoking report

anniversary time

to address topic

OUR POSITION: As the an-
niversary of the U.S. Surgeon
General's report on smoking
nears, it is time to allow local
governments in Florida to
impose smoking bans if they
see fit.
On Jan. 11, 1964, U.S.
Surgeon General
Luther Terry released
a report that contained few
surprises for many, but for the
first time, in black and white,
evidence that smoking kills
smacked Americans in the
face.
The report pulled no punch-
es. If you smoke, you could
die.
Smoking causes sickness
and death through cancer
and other illnesses.
At the time, 42 percent of
Americans smoked.
Today, thanks to heavy
taxation on tobacco, warning
labels on cigarette packs and
restrictions on where people
can light up, that number is
down to about 18 percent.
We're not in the business of
telling people how to live their
personal lives. And, we realize
this is a topic we have ad-
dressed before. But, we believe
people who do not smoke
should not be subjected to
second-hand smoke that is
dangerous to their health.
As we have written before,
the Florida Legislature will
likely take up a bill this year
that prohibits smoking on
playgrounds. There should be
little or no opposition to such
a no-brainer of a law. What
lawmaker would vote to allow
someone to smoke around
someone else's kids?
That bill could open the
door for legislation that would
return the rights of local
governments to pass their own
restrictions on smoking.
The State Attorney's Office
says local governments have
the right to pass such laws.
Sarasota County had prohib-
ited smoking on its beaches
- a law that seemed quite
popular. While smokers were
allowed to light up in desig-
nated areas, the ban cleaned
up the beaches. Some even
went so far as to give that law
some credit for Siesta Key
being named the Best Beach
in America in 2011.
The courts ruled, how-
ever, that only the Florida
Legislature had the right to
pass a smoking ban or to give
county and city governments
the green light to do so. That
effectively put the ball back in
the Legislature's court.
A bill last year that would
have given local governments
the right to pass ordinances
to ban smoking in public
areas failed to pass the Florida
Senate and could not even get
a hearing in the House. That is
ridiculous.
It took America decades to
come to grips with the dangers
of smoking. While studies as
early as 1950 linked cigarettes
to cancer, the tobacco in-
dustry did a masterful job of
countering those claims. Big
Tobacco issued its own reports
and put filter tips on cigarettes
that supposedly would trap
the bad stuff before a person
inhaled.
It was all, if you pardon the
pun, a smoke screen.
Smoking is by far the leading
preventable cause of death.
That is a fact.
The Florida Legislature
should not remain stuck in
the 1950s and fail to give local
governments power to impose
restrictions. Lawmakers can
do that without shouldering
any responsibility themselves


for smoking bans or restric-
tions that may come to pass.
What is stopping them is the
question.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Don't punish
hybrid owners

Editor:
At the end of the
last Charlotte County
Commission meeting,
Commissioner Constance
suggested that hybrid car
owners may need to be
charged some sort of fee for
not using as much gas as
other cars, citing that they
are not paying their share of
taxes that are earmarked for
road upkeep.
Is he kidding? That's like
taxing a smoker who is trying
to quit, and now buying
vapor e-cigs. They aren't
paying the tax on tobacco.
How about those who ride
mopeds, or those who don't
own a car? Should they too be
penalized?
I own a hybrid car for a
very good reason. It was
an inexpensive purchase
compared to the luxury gas
guzzling cars and kinder to
the planet. I am trying to do
my part and going as green
as I can, trying to respect
and protect this planet.
Decreasing my dependence
on oil is a patriotic action
that I can personally take.
Instead of looking to tax,
fine or punish people for
living healthier, why not look
to other communities that
have a higher participation in
green activities, like recy-
cling, and incentivize your
constituents? Look to the
city of Hollywood. They have
a program that "rewards"
residents for recycling. Right
now there is no tax, fine or
punishment for those who
do not recycle here in our
county.
I'm sure the commissioners
can think of positive, green
programs that will enhance
and preserve the community
and still be profitable for
the county. Let's try to be
forward thinkers, let's not go
backward.

Mandatory minimums
target the poor

Editor:
I applaud the Sun's column
on Jan. 3 regarding the high
cost of Florida's prisons.
One unmentioned way
to save money would be to
re-write Florida's "mandatory
minimum" laws. Because


of these laws that require
extensive sentences for
minor and/or non-violent
drug crimes, Florida's prison
system has become the third
largest in the county, costing
annually more than $2 bil-
lion dollars and owing more
than half-billion dollars for
construction.
Not only is the system
costly, it is unfair, dispro-
portionately targeting poor
people and people of color.
(Note the slap on the hand
given Trey Radel for using
cocaine). Not only does this
"mass incarceration" destroy
families and communities, it
attaches a lifelong stigma to
the convicted felon, resulting
in difficulty finding jobs,
loss of the vote, being barred
from public housing or other
assistance programs. Future
historians will regard this
system as "The New Jim
Crow" (Michelle Alexander's
new book) couched in the
law (not using racial vocab-
ulary) but yielding similar
results.
In fact, today, there are
more men of color in jail or
on parole than there were
slaves on plantations.
This fiscal irresponsibility
and criminal injustice scares
me. Addressing this issue,
the Unitarian Universalist
Fellowship of Charlotte
County, 1532 Forrest
Nelson Blvd., has invited
Greg Newburn, director
of the Florida chapter of
Families Against Mandatory
Minimums, to speak on
March 2, from 12:30 to 2 p.m.
This free and informative
event is open to the public.
Let's not be caught sleep-
ing through history.

Just asking

Editor:
Does it not strike you
as funny that scientists
investigating polar warming
are trapped by ice freezing
around their boat? And isn't
it funny that the prehistoric
ice age ended when the earth
warmed and thawed but now
the warming is the fault of
industry, which didn't exist
back then.
And how come America is
touted as the land of oppor-
tunity where anyone can be
successful, but if you succeed
and become wealthy, you
are a bad person. And isn't it
strange that if you feed ani-
mals they become dependent

Un Dec. 9, more than
100 concerned residents of
Heron Creek attended the
North Port City Commission
meeting. We came to inform
the commissioners of the
noise pollution and potential
danger created by the loca-
tion of the Bayflite helicopter
at Fire Station 81.
We were taken aback by the
hurtful comments made by
some speakers who opposed
our position. We listened as
we were called "selfish, rich
snowbirds," who couldn't
put up with "five minutes of
noise so we could be happy
on your little golf courses."
The purpose of this letter
is to share with everyone our
commitment to North Port.
We started the Heron Creek
Community Foundation,
which has donated more
than $70,000 in grants to
local charities. The Silent
Auction, run by the Heron
Creek Needlework Group, has
donated more than $60,000
to the Domestic Abuse
Shelter Home, Children First,
Boys and Girls Clubs of North
Port and to scholarships
to North Port High School
students.
We have donated 15,000
pounds of food to the Food
Pantry, provided support for

Executions should
come quicker

Editor:
I just read your article
regarding convicted killer
Thomas Knight's date of
execution on Tuesday, Jan. 7,
2013, in the lockup in Starke,
Fla. Wow, that's great, since
he was convicted of the
cold-blooded execution of
Sydney and Lillian Gans back
in 1974, and the murder of
Corrections Officer Richard
Burke in 1980 while he was
awaiting execution.
Let me get this straight.
It took the state of Florida
about 39 years to execute this
homicidal maniac and give
the victims and their respec-
tive families, if they in fact
are still alive, some measure
of satisfaction. It looks to
me like the lawyers filing the
appeals for this animal, and
being paid fees from taxpay-
ers, are the winners in this
fiasco.
Maybe our so-called
political representatives
could take an empirical look
at this process rather than
mandating the demise of
incandescent light bulbs.

Charlotte Harbor Super Boat Grand Prix a team effort


uper Boat Interna-
tional has sanc-
tioned a race sched-
uled for April 11-13, 2014,
in Charlotte County. SBI
has a long history of pro-
ducing races that create
multimillion dollar eco-
nomic impacts in host
communities, such as the
annual national champi-
onship event in Clear-
water. An independent
research firm estimated
the overall economic im-
pact of Clearwater's 2013
Super Boat race at more
than $17 million.
Clearwater is enter-
ing their sixth year of
hosting a Super Boat
event. This would be
a first-time event for
Charlotte County. This
is an exceptional op-
portunity that can open
opportunities for other


events that spark the
economy. It also comes
with some challenges in
regard to organization
and implementation.
Although SBI handles
all aspects of the race
related to what happens
on the water (such as
wildlife protection,
permitting and security),
the local organizing
entity Charlotte Harbor
Super Boat Grand Prix
(CHSBGP a not-for-
profit corporation) is


responsible for all land-
based activities. The local
organizers have studied
and attended other SBI
events and have met with
many event coordinators.
Now they are applying
what they have learned
to a Charlotte County
venue, which is both
similar to and distinctly
different from the venues
of other races.
An event of this scale
requires the engagement
of multiple county and
municipal agencies.
Unlike smaller events
which may involve one
event planner, these
major, multi-venue
events necessitate
coordination with law
enforcement, local, state
and federal agencies,
waste management,
emergency services and


more. The success of the
2014 Charlotte Harbor
Super Boat Grand Prix is
contingent on the ability
of the organizers and our
community agencies to
work together.
For both the organizers
and the community, this
is an event of unprece-
dented magnitude and
complexity. It is also the
event's inaugural year.
No matter how well we
plan and work together,
problems will arise which
were not foreseen. Such
is the nature of a new
event. Communication
between the organizers
and agencies has been
efficient and straight-
forward, which will help
solve issues as they arise
during the event.
For the community
the event will mean


temporary changes. For
example, there will be
heavy traffic during the
event. Fortunately, a
majority of those attend-
ing are accustomed to
this and will anticipate it,
and our community will
have ample time to plan
ahead for it.
Our ability to work
together will not only
ensure the success of the
2014 Charlotte Harbor
Super Boat Grand Prix, it
will put us in a much bet-
ter position to host other
large events in the future.
Organizers of major
events, such as sports for
example, want to know a
community has experi-
enced success in hosting
multi-venue or very large
events. They are often
reluctant to book an
event in a community


that has not had experi-
ence with multi-agency
cross-coordination.
Previous success in
hosting major events
puts Charlotte County on
the radar of other, major
event organizers.
There may be other
bumps in the road to suc-
cess. However, the first
time for anything is the
steepest learning process.
As we make it through
this first year, the road
will smooth out and the
payoff for our Charlotte
County community,
both at the end of the
event and in the future, is
exceptional.

Backflow
preventers
A reduced pressure
backflow device is used
to protect potable water


supplies from contami-
nation or pollution due
to backflow. In water
supply systems, water
is normally maintained
at a significant pressure
to enable water to flow
from the tap, shower, etc.
When pressure fails or is
reduced, as may happen
if a water main bursts,
or there is unexpectedly
high demand on the
water system, then such
reduced pressure in the
pipe may allow con-
taminated water from
the ground, irrigation
systems, swimming
pools or from other
sources to be drawn up
into the system. Most
utility companies prefer
the device to be near
the water meter so that
any malfunction would
be observed by the

water meter reader. The
devices also should be
tested annually to ensure
their proper operation
and tagged to show the
last date of service. Due
to complaints about the
appearance of these in
the front of the home,
City Council about a year
ago decided to allow the
devices to be located
near the building where
they would not be so
conspicuous. Utility
Director Tom Jackson
and Building Official
Randall Cole agreed that
this would be acceptable
for residential properties
due the lower risk for
cross contamination.
The Florida Plumbing
code does not specify
where they must be
located only that they
be installed. Therefore,
an owner or contractor
can install one anywhere
between the water meter
and the service entrance
into the house.

At today's meeting,
City Council will address
a number of topics to
include:
Voluntary annexation


agreement between the
city and Jones Loop Road
LLC (Terracap) which
will pave the way for its
annexation into the city.
The property owner is
seeking the financial
incentive program of
a 50 percent refund of
city property taxes for
a period of four years
and locking in impact
fee rates for a period of
10 years.
A domestic partner-
ship registry proposal,
similar to those adopted
in various Florida cities
and counties that pro-
vide protections for those
who are not married, but
are living together in a
longstanding committed
relationship, whether
they are same sex cou-
ples or not. Such services
may include notification
of partners in an emer-
gency; health care facility
visitation; designation
as pre-need guardians;
authority for each part-
ner to make or carry out
the wishes of a deceased
partner's funeral and
burial arrangements;
among others.

Holloway cooked aboard carrier USS Independence


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Norm Holloway of
Venice had the best job
in the Navy, according
to him: He was a cook
aboard the carrier USS
Independence (CV-62)
during the Vietnam War
era. He and 74 other
cooks provided food for
the ship's crew of 5,000.
Shortly after gradu-
ating from high school
in Camden, N.J., he
decided to join the Navy
in 1968 and see the
world because he was
tired of the cold weather
in Jersey in December.
They sent him to Great
Lakes Naval Processing
Center for boot camp,
where it's even colder.
Holloway trained as an
aviation electrician for six
months at Jacksonville
Naval Air Station, then
was reassigned to Virginia
Beach as part of Fighter
SquadronVF-102, called
the "Diamondbacks."
"They were just coming
back from Vietnam,
but only six of their 12
Phantom fighter-bomb-
ers returned to the states.
The others were shot
down over Vietnam,"
the 64-year-old former
Naval aviation electrician
recalled.
"The planes were in
bad shape. They had
holes in them from
the war and some of
them still had pine tree
branches stuck in them
from scraping the tops of
the trees while fighting,"
Holloway said. "They
sent me out on the flight
line to clean them up. I
was armed with a gigan-
tic power-washer that
shot steam. After three
or four days of cleaning
planes I went to the


lieutenant in charge and
told him, 'I don't want to
do this anymore, I'm an
aviation electrician.'
"'No problem,' he
replied.
"He sent me to the
galley. I became a cook
in the 'spud locker.' I
never went back to fixing
planes.
"When I arrived at the
galley, they said, 'You
must be the cook we're
looking for.'VF- 102, our
squadron, had three
cooks that prepared
meals for 250 men. I also
found out that cooks got
the best liberty in the
Navy and ate the best
food.
"'Yeah, I'll be your new
cook,' I told them."
Squadron VF-102
was sent aboard the
Essex-class carrier USS
Independence as it went
on sea trials off the East
Coast a short while later.
It eventually headed for
the Mediterranean and
a conflict in Jordan in
1970.
"I became one of
75 cooks aboard the
Independence cooking
for everyone in the 5,000-
man crew. From my
vantage point I became a
supersonic aviation com-
missary technician. I was
considered the best guy
in the squadron because
at night, when we were
at sea, I would make
the pilots whatever they
wanted doughnuts,
pizza, peanut butter and
jelly sandwiches.
"The first 13 months
I was a cook it was
on-the-job training for
me. I was in the spud
locker, the lowest job
you could have as a cook
in the Navy. Before I left
that position I was a 3rd
class petty officer with


five seamen working for
me. Our job was to peel
potatoes with machines,"
he explained. "I remem-
ber I was working in the
spud locker one night
and I turned around
and there stood Admiral
(Elmo) Zumwalt (chief
of Naval Operations)
behind me. He sat down
and chitchatted a little
bit with me."
From the spud locker,
Holloway's status was
upgraded and he began
working in the ship's
bakery.
"I could pretty much
do anything I wanted to
do in the bakery. I could
make pizzas for the men
aboard ship," he said.
One of the big pluses
about being a cook
aboard the Independence
- Holloway got a lot of
time off, both on board
and on shore when the
carrier came into port.
"One of my hobbies
was taking pictures of
activities aboard ship
when we were at sea.
One day I watched a
delta-winged 'Vigilante'
plane crash while
trying to land aboard the
Independence. It had a
really long nose and the
pilot sat in a cockpit all
the way up front.
"When he was coming
in that day, his tailhook
broke and it went over
the side of the ship at 70
knots.
"It came over the inter-
com: 'Plane in the water!
Plane in the water!' I
grabbed my camera
and went up on deck.
The ship had already
turned away from the
crash. The Vigilante was
upside-down in the sea.
It floated for a moment
or so on its back and
then it submerged in a


hurry. Both pilots lost
their lives.
"The next day I was
working in the galley
again and I heard over
the intercom once more:
'Plane in the water! Plane
in the water!' I grabbed
my camera and headed
for the flight deck.
"A Marine aviator in
his single-seat jet fighter
attempted to land on
the carrier's deck, but
his tailhook missed the
arresting cable. He went
off the front end of the
carrier and disappeared.
He managed to keep fly-
ing the plane and bring it
around again for another
landing.
"When he missed the
cable on the second try,
the pilot gunned the
engine and it stalled out
on him. As his fighter was
about to plunge into the
water, he hit his ejection
button. The pilot landed
in the sea alongside the
carrier. One of the two
helicopters hovering
overhead picked him up
and brought him back to
the ship. He survived the
ordeal.
"I photographed most
of it. When the fighter hit
the water it flipped over
and created a huge wave.
Both the wave and the
plane disappeared at the
same time," he said.
The Independence
spent 60 days off the
coast of Jordan before
it sailed back to the
states. After four months
stateside, the carrier was
reassigned to the North
Atlantic in December off
the coast of Scotland.
"Waves could be 60
feet high in the North
Atlantic," Holloway said.
"It was tough duty. When
we were up there we
dealt with Russian Bear


bombers and fighter
planes. They were always
messing with us. Our
fighters would intercept
the Russians and fly
upside-down, cockpit
to cockpit over top of
the Russian bombers.
Our squadron, the
Diamondbacks, were
great pilots.
"One time when our
ship came back to the
states, the squadron
went down to Boca Chica
Naval Air Station at Key
West. I went with them
because I was their cook.
When I wasn't cooking I
did a lot of scuba diving
around our submarine
pens with Navy Frogmen.
This was before they had
SEALs. We'd go down
looking for lobsters and
checking out the subs.
"Being a cook was
absolutely fabulous
duty. The Navy had the
best food in the world.
I went into the service
a 140-pound skinny kid
and came out four years
later 208 pounds."
After his discharge
from the Navy in 1972,
Holloway and his wife,
Janice, and their two
children, Jamie and
Kristin, moved to Venice.
They both went to work
for Coldwell Banker as
Realtors, where they have
been for almost three
decades.
Just by chance a few
years after moving here,
he stopped by Heitel
Jewelers in Venice, a cou-
ple of doors away, to get a
Mother's Day present for
his wife.
Ken Heitel, the owner,
was wearing a distinctive
gold ring made from his
Marine aviators wings.
"I found out he had
been a Marine pilot in
Squadron 102 aboard

CHICAGO The Amtrak
train slowed to a crawl as it
hammered through snow-

of Illinois countryside,
delivering thuds and jolts to
passengers, until it lurched
into a mound big enough
to grind its 8,000-horse-

About 90 miles short of
their Chicago destination,
passengers ended up stuck
on the train overnight,

WASHINGTON (AP)
-White House-backed
legislation to renew
jobless benefits unex-
pectedly cleared an initial
Senate hurdle on Tuesday,
raising the prospect of a
mid-winter compromise
to ease the impact of the
recession on the long-
term unemployed.
"Let's get it done,"
President Barack Obama
exhorted lawmakers at the
White House shortly after
the vote.
The vote was 60-37 to
limit debate on the three-
month legislation, with a
half-dozen Republicans
siding with the Democrats
on the test vote.
At the same time, the
Republican leader, Sen.
Mitch McConnell of
Kentucky, said he and
his rank and file would
seek changes so the bill's
$6.4 billion cost would not
add to deficits.
Senate Democrats
have so far rejected that
approach, although there
were signs they would
eventually yield.
Shortly after the Senate
vote, House Speaker
John Boehner, R-Ohio,

issued a statement
expressing views similar
to McConnell's. Almost
simultaneously, a senior
Senate Democrat, Chuck
Schumer of New York,
signaled a willingness to
consider changes to offset
the impact of the bill on
the deficit, calling that
"the second best option."
The vote came at the
dawn of an election year
in which the two parties
have made it clear they
intend to battle for the
support of millions of


voters who have suffered
economically through the
worst recession in decades
and the slow, plodding
recovery that followed.
The political phrase is
income disparity the
difference between the
rich and the economically
squeezed. In pocketbook
terms, Democrats chose
first to seek an extension
of long-term jobless
benefits, to be followed
by a proposal to increase
the minimum wage that
many Republicans also


are expected to oppose.
Among the GOP
proposals is a suspension
in the requirement to
purchase health insurance
under "Obamacare,"
a change that would
potentially save billions of
dollars in federal subsidies
to the lower-income.
As drafted, the un-
employment bill would
restore between 14 weeks
and 47 weeks of benefits
averaging $256 weekly to
an estimated 1.3 million
long-term jobless who
were affected when
the program expired
Dec. 28. Without action
by Congress, thousands
more each week would
feel the impact as their
state-funded benefits
expire, generally after
26 weeks.
In remarks on the
Senate floor, Senate
Majority Leader Harry
Reid of Nevada noted that
a recent spate of positive
economic news doesn't
"match the darker reality"
of the lives of millions.
"They sit at the kitchen
table, if they're lucky and
have a kitchen table to sit.
They're juggling bills."

JPMorgan to pay

NEWYORK (AP)-
Officials say JPMorgan
Chase & Co. will pay
$1.7 billion to settle criminal
charges and a $350 million
civil penalty for missing
obvious warning signs of
Bernard Madoff's massive
Ponzi scheme.
The criminal settlement

Federal prosecutors
in New York say the

The Treasury

Federal judge:

CHICAGO (AP)- A

it's also obligated to

right to keep and bear
arms for self-defense.

WASHINGTON (LA
Times) -Americans'
confidence in the econo-

end of the partial federal
government shutdown in
October, another positive
sign for the recovery as
the new year begins, ac-
cording to data released
Tuesday by Gallup.
The public opinion
firm's economic confi-
dence index rose to mi-
nus 19 in December from
minus 25 in November.
The monthly average,
based on Gallup's daily
tracking interviews, had
plunged to minus-35 in
October as a partisan
standoff in Washington
caused many federal
agencies to shut down for
16 days.
The December index
was back to its September
level, Gallup said.
The post-shutdown
improvement matched

US trade deficit

WASHINGTON (AP)-
The U.S. trade deficit fell in
November to its lowest level
in four years, an encour-
aging sign that economic
growth in the final three
months of the year was
stronger than analysts had
forecast.
Gains in energy produc-
tion and stronger sales of
American-made airplanes,
autos and machinery lifted
exports to an all-time high.
The trade gap dropped
12.9 percent in November
to $34.3 billion, the
Commerce Department
said Tuesday. That's the
lowest monthly trade
deficit since October 2009.
Exports rose 0.9 percent to
a record $194.9 billion. The
gain was aided by a
5.6 percent rise in petro-
leum exports.
Imports dropped
1.4 percent to $229.1 billion.
A decrease in demand for
foreign oil offset a record
level of imported autos.

Fla. executes man who killed guard, couple


STARKE(AP)- A
Florida inmate was exe-
cuted Tuesday for fatally
stabbing a prison guard
with a sharpened spoon
while on death row for
abducting and killing a
Miami couple.
Askari Abdullah
Muhammad, previously
known as Thomas
Knight, was pronounced
dead at 6:45 p.m.
Tuesday following
a lethal injection at
Florida State Prison, the
governor's office said.
The 62-year-old
inmate was initially
condemned to die for
the 1974 abduction and
killings of Sydney and
Lillian Gans of Miami.
Tuesday's execution
was specifically for his
conviction in the 1980
killing of corrections
officer Richard Burke.
Muhammad was


visited by his four sis-
ters Monday and earlier
Tuesday by a friend.
His execution was
delayed for so long by
numerous appeals and
rulings, including a 1987
federal appeals court
tossing out
his original
Death
sentence
because he
hadn't been
allowed to
put char-
MUHAMA acter and
MUHAMMAD background
witnesses on the stand
during the penalty
phase.
The U.S. Supreme
Court refused to hear
his final appeals,
but Justice Stephen
Breyer said in a dis-
sent he would have
granted a stay to hear
Muhammad's claims


that it may be unconsti-
tutional to execute an
inmate after such a long
time on death row.
Court documents
show that Muhammad
fatally stabbed Burke as
he was being escorted
to the prison shower.
The inmate had become
upset, the documents
say, because he was told
he couldn't see a visitor
unless he shaved his full
beard. The documents
added he had been
overheard by guards to
remark that "it looks like
I'll have to start sticking
people."
In the earlier slaying,
Muhammed had worked
for Gans at a paper
bag company before
abducting him in the
business parking lot
with a rifle. He ordered
Gans to drive home,
pick up his wife and


then head to a bank to
withdraw $50,000.
Inside the bank, Gans
asked a manager to
alert authorities. Both
the FBI and police were
able to follow the car for
a while, including use
of aircraft, but lost track
of it for a short time in
a rural part of southern
Miami-Dade County.
Trial testimony showed
that's when Muhammed
shot the couple and
tried to hide by burying
himself, the rifle and
the money in mud and
weeds.
Muhammed was
found soon after and
arrested. While awaiting
trial, he and 10 other in-
mates escaped from jail,
leading to a nationwide
manhunt including a
top 10 fugitives listing
by the FBI.

CRYSTAL RIVER (AP) -
Hundreds of heat-seeking
manatees are packing the

That's prompted offi-

Roughly 300 manatees

Tuesday, officials institut-

of the springs to activities
such as swimming and
kayaking so that the
manatees would not be
disturbed.
The closure may con-

afternoon or longer.
Visitor services specialist

Police killer dies
on death row of
natural causes
STARKE(AP)- A
man awaiting execution
on Florida's death row
for the 1981 killing of
a Miami police officer
has reportedly died of
natural causes.
Corrections de-
partment officials say
56-year-old Robert
Patten died Monday of
an undisclosed illness.


Patten was sentenced to
die for fatally shooting
24-year-old Nathaniel
Broom, who was a rookie
Miami police officer.
Trial evidence showed
Broom stopped Patten's
car because it was going
the wrong way down a
one-way street.
Witnesses said Patten
took off on foot and
hid, then shot Broom as
he approached. Patten
then stole another car to
escape.


Muhammed was
involved after his
escape in the fatal
October 1974 shoot-
ing of a liquor store
clerk during an armed
robbery in Cordele, Ga.,
that wounded a second
clerk. He was never
tried in that case.
The FBI finally
arrested Muhammad
on New Year's Eve in
1974 in Florida. In his


possession, authorities
said, were three stolen
weapons: a sawed-off
shotgun, a revolver and
a handgun.
Muhammad convert-
ed to Islam in prison,
changing his name from
Knight. During his 1996
resentencing, he cursed
at the judge and law-
yers and yelled "Allahu
Akbar!" "God is great"
in Arabic.

Fountains froze over, a

Southerners had to dig
out winter coats, hats
and gloves they almost
never have to use.
The brutal polar
air that has made the
Midwest shiver over the
past few days spread
to the East and the
Deep South on Tuesday,
shattering records that in
some cases had stood for
more than a century.
The mercury plunged
into the single digits

"You hear those horror
stories about the cars that

'Oh God, this is going to

ger Chris Smith.
They weren't alone.
Across huge swaths of the

froze travel and left mo-
torists, airline passengers
and commuters fighting to
stay in motion and, when
that failed, fighting to stave
off boredom and cold.
Airlines again canceled
several thousand flights

cold slowed everything

to refueling. On the roads,
powerful winds pushing
snow into desert-like
dunes forced authorities
to shut major highways,

South got this cold,"
said Marty Williams, a
homeless man, originally
from Chicago, who took
shelter at a church in
Atlanta, where it hit a
record low of 6 degrees.
"That was the main rea-

from up North, from the
cold, to get away from all
that stuff."
The morning weather
map for the eastern half
of the U.S. looked like an
algebra worksheet: lots of
small, negative numbers.
In fact, the Midwest and
the East were colder than
much of Antarctica.
In a phenomenon
that forecasters said
is actually not all that
unusual, all 50 states saw
freezing temperatures at
some point Tuesday. That
included Hawaii, where


it was 18 degrees atop
Mauna Kea, a dormant
volcano.
The big chill started
in the Midwest over the
weekend, caused by a
kink in the "polar vortex,"
the strong winds that cir-
culate around the North
Pole. By Tuesday, the icy
air covered about half
the country, and records

The result is less sleep
- and less time for the

and mood, according to
Australia's Sleep Health
Foundation.
In the U.S. alone,

"Sleep is in a battle for
our time with work life,
social life and family life,"
said David Hillman, a sleep
specialist at the Sir Charles
Gairdner Hospital in Perth,
Western Australia, and
the chairman of the Sleep
Health Foundation. "For
a lot of us, it comes off a
poor fourth in that battle."
Regular sleep distur-
bances are associated with
ailments including obesity,
diabetes, heart disease
and cancer, according to
H-illman.
Modern technology isn't
helping.
The National Sleep


Foundation in Arlington,
Va., commissioned a
survey of 1,500 randomly
selected adults in the U.S.,
Canada, Mexico, Germany,
Britain and Japan to
understand their bedroom
environment and its effect
on sleep for its inaugu-
ral 2013 International
Bedroom Poll. The results,
published in September,
showed that more than
half of respondents in the
U.S., Canada and Britain,
and two-thirds in Japan,
used a computer, laptop
or tablet in the hour before
bed.
At least two-thirds of
people in all countries
surveyed watched TV
in the hour before bed.
Only about half said they
get a good night's sleep
on work nights.


"It's a massive issue,
particularly when you
talk about technology,"
said Sarah Loughran,
a sleep researcher
at the University of
Wollongong, south of
Sydney. "We're not just
talking about mobile
phones but iPads,
TVs, laptops. A lot of
these things are in the

compiled by Bloomberg.

may be more detrimental,


according to researcher
Czeisler, who is also
head of sleep medicine
at Boston's Brigham and
Women's Hospital.
The timing of exposure
to the light-dark cycle
is the most powerful
means by which the
circadian clock, the
body's biological time
keeper, is synchronized
to the 24-hour day,
Czeisler's research found.
He began studying the
impact of the circadian
rhythm on sleep in 1972
and has written about
200 scientific papers and
review articles on the
subject. He estimates
that since the advent
of electricity-powered
light, people's internal
sleep triggers have been
pushed back six hours.

Just how cold is it in

Authorities said the
inmate escaped from

Sunday. As tempera-

Monday, officials say
the man walked into
a motel and asked the

he wanted to turn

police spokeswoman

Vick was checked

Roberts said.
"This was definitely

I can understand why
the suspect would turn

Vick would have been

Princess Cristina
charged with tax
fraud, money
MADRID (MCT)-
Princess Cristina, the
youngest daughter of
King Juan Carlos of Spain,
has been charged with
committing tax fraud
and money laundering,
an investigating judge
announced Tuesday.
She is scheduled to ap-
pear in a court in Palma
de Mallorca on March 8.
Her lawyer said that he
would submit an appeal
that would exonerate her.
The allegations have
entangled the royal family
in one of the worst public
relations crises in King
Juan Carlos' three-de-
cade-long reign.
The so-called "Noos
case" is a three-year-
long alleged corruption
scandal that also has
embroiled the princess'
husband, former Olympic
handball player Inaki
Urdangarin.
Urdangarin and his
former business partner
Diego Torres are being
investigated over alle-
gations they embezzled
about $8 million in
public funds through the
Noos institute, a char-
itable foundation that
Urdangarin headed from
2004 to 2006.

PARIS (MCT) -Two
managers at a Goodyear
tire factory in northern
France were released
Tuesday after being held
hostage by workers for
nearly 30 hours in a row
over job cuts, media
reports said.
The men had been held
in a conference room by
workers demanding that
the U.S. company, which
last year announced
plans to close the plant,
offer improved severance
payouts.
Goodyear had refused
all negotiations with the
workers until the execu-
tives were freed.
They were released
after police intervened
at the plant in Amiens.
According to broadcaster
BFMTV, the workers had
agreed to let them go.
There were angry
scenes as the executives
were escorted from the
building by police, with
workers heckling them
and calling them "thugs."
An official with the
CGT trade union, which
is known for its militant
approach, announced
shortly afterward that the
union would occupy the
building until the work-
ers' demands were met.

Diplomat: Draft on
Israel-Palestinian
deal soon
JERUSALEM (AP) -The
U.S. ambassador to Israel
says a framework proposal
on all issues at the heart
of the Israeli-Palestinian
conflict will be presented to
both sides soon.
Dan Shapiro told Israel
Radio on Tuesday that
the proposal will include
security arrangements,
borders, Jerusalem and all
the other "core issues."
He said it will be present-
ed to the Israelis and the
Palestinians in a few weeks'
time.
U.S. Secretary of State
John Kerry has been visiting
the region often since
talks resumed last July,
shuttling between Israel
and Palestinian leaders to
mediate talks.
Kerry has been pushing
for the outlines of a peace
deal. He is trying to nudge

Benjamin Netanyahu closer
to a peace pact that would
establish a Palestinian state

Ex-Miss Venezuela
slain in robbery

CARACAS, Venezuela
(AP) A former Miss
Venezuela and her
ex-husband were shot
and killed and their
5-year-old daughter
was wounded after
they resisted robbers by
locking the doors of their
broken-down car, police
said Tuesday.
The slaying of Monica
Spear, 29,
a popular
soap-opera
actress, and
Thomas
Henry Berry,
a 39-year-
old British
SPEAR citizen, was
the latest
high-profile crime in a
country where killings
are common in armed
robberies and where
rampant kidnapping has
ensnared even foreign
ambassadors and profes-
sional baseball players.
Spear and Berry were
slain late Monday night
near Puerto Cabello,
the country's main port,
while headed to Caracas
after their car hit "a sharp
object that had been
placed on the highway,"
the director of the coun-
try's investigative police,
Jose Gregorio Sierralta,

China's first 'ivory
crush' may signal
protection of
African elephants
NANANGZHEN, China
(Washington Post) China,
the world's biggest consum-
er of illegal ivory, crushed
six tons of tusks and carved
ornaments in public on
Monday, in an event that
signaled it would do more
to join global efforts to
protect African elephants
from rampant poaching.
About 25,000 of the
estimated 500,000 elephants
in Africa are illegally slaugh-
tered each year for their
tusks, conservationists say.
It is a $10 billion industry
that draws in global crime
syndicates and African rebel
groups, and threatens to
wipe out elephants from
some parts of the continent
within a decade.
Although Chinese
authorities have stepped
up anti-trafficking efforts
in recent years, the trade in
illegal ivory has continued,
in part because many
Chinese people do not
know elephants have to die
for the ivory to be taken.
On Monday, workers
in overalls fed scores of
weighty tusks and hundreds
of small, intricately carved
objects into a large, noisy
green crushing machine in
front of a crowd of officials.

The helicopter

NEWYORK (AP) Stocks rallied
Tuesday, ending a slump that had
ushered in the NewYear.
The Standard and Poor's 500 index
climbed the most in three weeks,
led by gains for health care stocks.
UnitedHealth Group, the nation's
largest health insurer, and Johnson
& Johnson both climbed on recom-
mendations for brokerage firms.
After three straight declines, the
S&P 500 would have matched its
worst opening of a year since 1978
had it closed lower for a fourth day.
The stock market's slow start to 2014
contrasts with last year's exceptional
performance, when the S&P 500
climbed to record levels after surging
almost 30 percent.
"To me the trend still looks up,
even though we've been chopping


around," said Bill Stone, chief
investment strategist at PNC Wealth
Management Group. The economy
"seems to be in the mode that you
would expect corporate earnings to
continue to grow."
The S&P 500 rose 11.11 points, or
0.6 percent, to 1,837.88, the biggest
gain since Dec. 18. Nine of the 10
sectors that make up the index rose.
The Dow Jones industrial
average climbed 105.84 points, or
0.6 percent, to 16,530.94 The Nasdaq
composite gained 39.50 points, or
1 percent, to 4,153.18.
UnitedHealth group gained
$2.27, or 3.1 percent, to $76.51 after
analysts at Deutsche Bank said they
expected the nation's largest health
insurance company to charge cus-
tomers more in premiums this year.


Johnson & Johnson climbed
$1.96, or 2.1 percent, to $94.29 after
analysts at RBC Capital raised their
outlook on the stock to "outper-
form," in part due to optimism on
sales of the diabetes drug Invokana.
Investors were also encouraged by
the easy passage in a Senate vote late
Monday of Janet Yellern's nomination
to take the helm at the Federal
Reserve. The vote puts an economist
in the post who has backed the
Fed's recent efforts to stimulate the
economy with low interest rates and
huge bond purchases.
The confirmation is a reminder
that the Fed's policies of stimulating
the economy will likely contin-
ue, said Kristina Hooper, U.S.
Investment Strategist at Allianz
Global Investors.

and to share some clues
to what the problem may
be. This information is
invaluable when trying
to troubleshoot a recalci-
trant PC.
Unfortunately, most of
the time the blue screen
only displays for a few
seconds and then our
computer restarts. We
must make modifications
to our Windows config-
uration in order to force


our PC to display the blue
screen until we have time
to jot down the important
information and manual-
ly restart the machine.
If runningVista or
Windows 7, click the Start
button, find Computer on
the start menu. Windows
8 use the charms bar to
search for Computer,
right click on Computer,
and from the context
menu click on Properties.
On the tabs available
in the new dialogue
box, click on Advanced.
Find the section labeled
Startup and Recovery
and click on the Settings
button. Remove the check
box that says automat-
ically restart. Our com-
puter will now stop when
it displays the bug stop


"IRQL NOT GREATER
OR EQUAL" or "DRIVER
IRQL NOT LESS OR
EQUAL" but there are
hundreds more in the
same format. The second
piece of information is
a series of numbers and
letters in four groups that
will look something like
this: "STOP OxOOOOOOOA
(OxBFD 14AAC,
OxOOOOOOFF, Ox00000000,
0x8000F67C)." The
third piece will be at the
bottom of the screen that
will reference a memory
dump. A memory dump
file contains data from
the operating memory
recorded over a certain
time period and does
not mean the computer
is dumping our pictures
and documents.
With this information


from programs we loaded
intentionally or unknow-
ingly. Bad RAM memory
is another common
culprit or incompatible
hardware such as video
cards, or other hardware
we might have installed.
Sometimes even updates
for devices can trigger a
blue screen.
Finding the cause of a
crash can be like peeling
away the layers of an
onion, removing one
possibility at a time. It's
never easy but the BSoD
gives us a starting point.

Overall, if you find you
have $200 budgeted for car
repairs and the repair turns
out to be $250, I'd rather
you cut back on eating out
to make up the difference.
That's the way my wife and
I did it back in the day. We
never touched the emer-
gency fund for anything
except big, unexpected,
scary stuff. Dave

Hacking risks: Remote-control cameras, cars


(The Yomiuri Shimbun)
-A middle-aged man
wearing a sweatshirt re-
moves an elderly woman's
clothes and begins wiping
her body late one night at a
house in Hyogo Prefecture.
Could they be mother and
son? Soon after, the man
fills a washbowl with wa-
ter and carefully washes
her hands. They then eat a
meal together. On another
day, the woman is seen
sitting on a chair for a
long time.
These scenes are part of
the footage aired around-
the-clock on the Internet.
For five years and eight
months, the two did not
realize that their daily lives


were being "broadcast live"
via a camera set up inside
their house.
In March 2008, the man
signed up for a service
enabling users with com-
puters and smartphones
to remotely monitor what
elderly family members
were doing through
footage transmitted from
cameras in their homes.
The man paid a monthly
fee of 840 yen (about $8)
for the service provided
by a subsidiary of Jupiter
Telecommunications
Co., Japan's largest cable
TV station. However, the
man did not know that
if users do not change
the initial settings of the


service, the footage will be
automatically broadcast
online, allowing anybody
to watch. To limit access to
only the user and the ser-
vice provider, users need to
change the "user manage-
ment" status. However, a
notice to users about the
default setting was not
easy to understand.
At one point, 125
households were signed
up for the service, but
nine did not change the
default settings. The sub-
sidiary admitted it was at
fault, saying, "We should
have given a thorough
verbal explanation on the
matter when the con-
tracts were signed."


So-called network cam-
eras began circulating in
the domestic market from
around 2005. According to
Yano Research Institute,
a market research
company, about 400,000
network cameras are now
sold annually. Cameras
produced by Panasonic
Corp. a leader in the
field are all initially set
to allow everyone to watch
the footage online.
Some websites have
even compiled videos
from such cameras. One
such site shows footage of
children taking a nap at
a kindergarten in Tokyo
and a woman relaxing as
a hairdresser washes her

hair. Some cameras allow
remote users to change the
viewing angle or zoom in.
Such risks are not lim-
ited to network cameras.
The number of electrical
appliances connected to
the Internet such as TVs
and multifunction printers
-has steadily increased.

Appliances

In February 2013, major
household equipment
manufacturer Lixil Corp.
released a high-tech toilet
on which users can control
the temperature of the
toilet seat and the volume
of water, using their smart-
phones as a remote control.
However, it took only six
months for a security
company to discover that
the toilets "can easily be
controlled from outside"
because the initial pass-
word for administrators
was set as 0000.
"It is not rare to find the
passwords of Internet-
connected electrical appli-
ances left unchanged from
such simple passwords,"
said FumiakiYamasaki,
a specially appointed
professor at the University
of Aizu who specializes in
information security.
According to Yamasaki,
it is even easy to find the
default passwords for
such appliances based
on makers or models of
machines online.
Despite such concerns,
appliances are becoming
more IT-friendly by the day.
The Electrical Appliance
and Material Safety Law
has banned such electric
appliances as air condition-
ers and refrigerators from
allowing remote access,
but the regulations were
relaxed in May 2013.

Automobiles


Though nobody is


touching it, the steering
wheel of a Toyota Prius
suddenly begins to
rotate rapidly. Then, out
of nowhere, the brakes
are engaged. When such a
scene occurred at DefCon,
an annual hacking compe-
tition held in Las Vegas in
August, the audience was
floored.
In this experiment, the
vehicle was being piloted
by an expert who connect-
ed a notebook computer
to the Prius. However,
according to the expert,
the car can be remotely
controlled via wireless
communication.
The risk of a car being
remotely controlled has
increased due to the
recent development of
unmanned vehicles, or
so-called driverless cars.
The vehicles are
equipped with cameras
and sensors to control
the steering wheel and
brakes through com-
puters. Google has been
conducting experiments
on public roads to put
driverless cars which
can make turns and detect
signals without a human
driver to practical use.
Japanese automakers have
begun such experiments
on public roads, eyeing a
product release by 2020.
Unmanned driving
has been dreamed of as
a technology that would
allow more disabled and
elderly people to drive and
alleviate traffic conges-
tion. However, as driving
becomes more convenient
through the addition of
networked features, it will
inevitably acquire the risk
of being hacked. "Many
people know the risk of
personal computers being
hacked. However, only a
few people understand
that similar risks exist with
electrical appliances and
cars," Yamasaki said.

Bobcats


heat up


in final

minutes
By CHUCK BALLARO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
NORTH PORT On
a frigid night at The
Preserve, North Port High
School's Jacob Sumaljag
found the right time to
get hot.
The junior striker
scored from point-blank
range with less than five
minutes remaining to lift
the Bobcats to a 3-2 win
against Port Charlotte in a
District 4A- 11 match.
Sumaljag got open in
front of the crease, took
a Matteo Gregoire pass
and booted it past Port
Charlotte goalkeeper
Mike Bakogiannis in
the 76th minute for the
winning goal.
Sumaljag almost
became the goat when he
was sent off in the 78th
minute after earning his
second yellow card.
With a man advantage
Port Charlotte (4-7-1,
3-6-1) made a final stab
at tying the game, but an
offside call inside the box
ended the threat and gave
North Port the win.
"It's a great start to
the new year. To get a
late goal is big for us.
We needed this win to
solidify our place in the
district (third)," North
Port coach Gerard
Gergoire said. "The kids
didn't drop their head
when Port Charlotte tied
it and they worked."
The cold weather had
little effect on either
team's ability to play
its game as the Pirates
used their collapse-and-
counter scheme to get an
early edge.
After one counter
forced a corner kick, the
Pirates Cody Uttermohlen
took the kick from Tyler
Sultan and knocked it
past North Port goal-
keeper Daniel Estrada to
make it 1-0.
North Port (10-5, 8-4)
played its aggressive
brand of soccer and tied

* COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Florida State


Fisher focuses on keeping 'edge'


By MATT MURSCHEL
ORLANDO SENTINEL
NEWPORT BEACH,
Calif. Jimbo Fisher
knows there is still work
to be done.
Less than 12 hours after
a thrilling, come-from-
behind 34-31 victory
over Auburn on Monday
night in the BCS National
Championship Game, the
Florida State coach was
already focused on the
future.
"You take winning for


granted," Fisher said
Tuesday at the Newport
Beach Marriott, where
he was presented with
three more championship
trophies in addition to
the BCS crystal football.
"That's going to be our
challenge now. How
hungry can you stay?"
Fisher understands
how difficult it can be to
continue a winning tradi-
tion. He saw it during his
days under Nick Saban
at LSU first-hand and is
looking to avoid those


same pitfalls.
"You can't lose that
edge," Fisher said. "If you
ever lose that edge, that
chip on your shoulder,
you're just another team.
"This team has to go
back, get its own identity,
get its own leadership
and develop that and
that's going to be our
challenge now."
That's not to say the
48-year-old West Virginia
native didn't take a
moment to step back and
take it all in following his


team's emotional victory.
Fisher said he celebrated
with family and friends
after the game back at the
team hotel before finding
a spot in a chair where he
almost dozed off.
"You feel like you want
to sleep for about a week
after these seasons,"
Fisher joked.
Fisher said the
team should get back
to Tallahassee on
Wednesday and his

ARCADIA- Lemon
Bay High School escaped
with an improbable win
on a cold, windy night in
DeSoto County.
Most of the game was
played in the DeSoto
County attacking zone,
as the Bulldogs came up
empty on one scoring
opportunity after another.
DeSoto County had seven
shots on goal in Tuesday's
match to just one by
Lemon Bay, but that one
shot proved to be the

* FIGURE SKATING:


Competitors figure



on seizing moment


By BARRY WILNER
ASSOCIATED PRESS
BOSTON Go out and
get it.
That's the mindset and
mantra for competitors
at the U.S. Figure Skating
Championships this week.
Their objectives: grab-
bing a spot on the Sochi
Olympic team.
There are three slots
available in women's and
ice dance, two in men's
and in pairs. So let the
free-for-all begin.
"In 2010,1 was 17 or
18 and thought, 'Yeah,
the Olympics, that might
happen,'" two-time U.S.
champion Ashley Wagner
said. "Now, I'm set on
making it reality. I've taken
all the thoughtful steps to
get there.
"My approach for
nationals is that, while
no doubt this is a huge
event, if you make it a
huge event in your mind,
it becomes unbearable. So
just make it another day at
the rink and it's cool. And
go for it."
Wagner is, by far, the
best American bet for
an individual medal in
Sochi. By finishing fifth at
the worlds last year and
Gracie Gold getting sixth,
they secured the maxi-
mum three spots for the
Olympics.
The beneficiaries of that
could well be Gold and
Agnes Zawadzki, the silver
and bronze medalists at
the 2013 nationals. They,
too, are in attack mode.
"It's a little nerve-rack-
ing, but mostly it's
exciting," the 18-year-old
Gold said of her first time
through the Olympic
qualifying cauldron. "It's
big. I'm on a mission.
"In 2011,1 missed
nationals, and then I was
thinking maybe the 2018

bet for an individual medal in Sochi next month.


Olympics. Then I won
juniors at nationals and
was second last year (in
seniors). I refocused. I'm
giving it everything I have.
No holding back."
Zawadzki agrees,
stressing the importance
of not getting stressed out
mentally while putting
everything she has into
her performances in
Boston and, hopefully,
in Sochi.
"I really think our sport
is more mental than
physical," she said. "You
build that pattern of doing
it right in your programs
in practice, and you have
to convince yourself that
you've done it so many
times before, you can do
it in competition. That's
when the doubts can
come in and you have to
remove them and just go
for it because you know
you can do it."


What no U.S. woman
has done is medal at the
Olympics or worlds since
2006. But before starring
on the world stage, the
Americans must make the
podium at nationals.
With the exception of
ice dance, where world
champions Meryl Davis
and Charlie White are
Olympic favorites, the
medals chase in Sochi is
a long shot for American
skaters. According to
Adam Rippon, last year's
men's runner-up at the
nationals, that means
being extra aggressive on
the Boston ice.
"My mindset is totally
different now," he said.
"You always want to
achieve success, but in an
Olympic year, it's about
being successful by more
attacking. More attacking
everything. My belief is if I
attack, success will come."

Game hits political rimshot


By ERIC TALMADGE
ASSOCIATED PRESS
PYONGYANG, North
Korea Former NBA
star Charles D. Smith
said he feels remorse for
coming to Pyongyang
with Dennis Rodman
for a game on the North
Korean leader's birthday
because the event has
been dwarfed by politics
and tainted by Rodman's
own comments.
Smith and other
former NBA players are
scheduled to play with
Rodman against a team of
North Koreans today that
organizers said Kim Jong
Un is expected to attend.
Many of the players on
Tuesday privately ex-
pressed second thoughts
about going ahead
because of an outpouring
of criticism back home in


the United States.
Rodman arrived in
Pyongyang on Monday
with seven former NBA
players and four street-
ballers for the game on
Kimrn's birthday, believed
to be his 31st.
"The way some of the
statements and things
that Dennis has said
has tainted our efforts,"
Smith said. "Dennis is
a great guy, but how he
articulates what goes on
- he gets emotional and
he says things that he'll
apologize for later."
The White House said
Tuesday it would not have
approved Rodman's latest
trip to North Korea if it
had any say in the matter
and NBA Commissioner
David Stern has distanced
his organization from
Rodman's squad.
The plan to hold the


game has been criticized
because of the North's
human rights record,
its development of
nuclear weapons and its
threats to use them if a
conflict breaks out with
Washington or Seoul.
Rodman, in particular,
has been slammed for not
trying to use his influence
with Kim to secure the
release of Kenneth Bae,
an American missionary
with health problems
who is being held in
North Korea on charges of
"anti-state" crimes.
Asked in a CNN sat-
ellite interview Tuesday
whether he would raise
the issue of Bae, Rodman
yelled in response: "I
don't give a rat's (butt)
what the (heck) you think.
... One day this door is
going to open because
these 10 guys here."

FISHER

FROM PAGE 1
coaching staff will have a
day or so to rest up before
they jump right back
on the recruiting trail.
National Signing Day
looms less than a month
away.
Any discussions on
Florida State's future
inevitably shift to its
young Heisman Trophy
quarterback Jameis
Winston. His perfor-
mance Monday night,
shaking off early mistakes
to lead a game-winning
scoring drive, solidified
his position as one of the
best to ever play the po-
sition for the Seminoles.
Next season presents its
own set of challenges,
including the attention
and pressure that goes
with trying to repeat
as national champions
and Winston potentially
leaving early for the NFL.
Fisher said it is far too
to be discussing whether
Winston will leave after
one more season with the
Seminoles when he first
becomes eligible for the
draft.
"The thing about
Jameis, he's a team-ori-
ented guy and he's not
worried about the NFL
or anything else," Fisher
said. "We don't necessar-
ily know he's going to the
NFL, do we?
"Don't assume now...
You know what assume
stands for."
All kidding aside, Fisher
said next season will offer
another opportunity for
his redshirt freshman star
signal caller to improve.
"It'll be another grow-
ing stage for him and all
of us and he'll learn from
it," Fisher said. 'Again, I
think he'll handle it very
well."
Fisher has been known
to shout at his star player
on the sidelines. Winston
has said he appreciates
Fisher has never coddled
him, always demanding
him to be the best.
The two went head-
to-head right before
their trip to Southern
California, with Fisher
banishing his young star
from the Seminoles final
practice in Tallahassee
because he felt he wasn't
in the right mindset
during two-minute drills.
He said Winston argued
his case and he listened,
but in the end he made
the call.
"We had some points
and he had some points,
so it's good to be king,"
Fisher said drawing a
laugh from the media
assembled.
"He'll be the king
one day," Fisher added.
"When he's in pro ball he
might have thrown the
coach out."

McCarron's



mom sorry for



Winston tweet


FROM WIRE REPORTS
PASADENA, Calif.
- Dee Dee McCarron,
the mother of Alabama
quarterback AJ McCarron,
apologized early Tuesday
after posting a tweet mak-
ing fun of the diction of
Florida State quarterback
Jameis Winston.
McCarron typed, "Am
I listening to English?"
while Winston was speak-
ing at a news conference
following the Seminoles'
34-31 victory over Auburn
in the national champion-
ship game.
Winston posted his re-
buttal Tuesday afternoon:
"For the people that
criticize the way that I
talk this is for y'all. The
Florida State Seminoles
are national champions!
That is all."
McCarron, who has
nearly 23,000 follow-
ers under the handle
DeeDeeBonner, deleted
her initial tweet and said
she and her family are
not racists. Winston, who
was a 4.0 student in high
school in Hueytown, Ala.,
was emotional and ram-
bled during his interview
on the podium.

Palm Beach Post

Former Seminole dies:
Former NFL and Florida State offensive
tackle Todd Williams was found dead in
a Tampa Bay area hotel.
The Manatee County Sheriff's Office
reported that deputies responded
to the Sarasota Suites late Monday
morning. The 35-year-old Bradenton
native had reportedly complained to
his mother of feeling sick on Friday. She
found his body Monday.
Sheriff's spokesman Dave Bristow
says they haven't found anything
suspicious, but an autopsy will be
performed.
Williams was one of the state's top
prospects after his senior season at
Southeast High in Bradenton. He was
a redshirt freshman on the Seminoles'
1999 national champion team. He was


drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the
2003 NFL draft and went on to play
for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the
Green Bay Packers.

Texas donor bashes
Strong hire: A billionaire donor
to the University of Texas said the hire
of new coach Charlie Strong was like a
"kick in the face.'
Red McCombs has donated millions
to Texas, and his name is on the north
side of the football stadium. He publicly
lobbied for Texas to hire Jon Gruden.
Hours after Strong was introduced
Monday at a campus news conference,
McCombs, the former owner of the
Minnesota Vikings and the San Antonio
Spurs, complained to KZDC-AM in San
Antonio that he was ignored in the
coaching search.
"I think it is a kick in the face,";'
McCombs said. "Beyond the fact of
what actually happened. We have
boosters that have a lot of knowledge
about the game."
McCombs said prominent donors
had a lot of input when Texas hired
Mack Brown in 1997. This time, the
coaching search was led by new
athletic director Steve Patterson.

Around the nation: Missouri
junior running back Henry Josey has
declared for the NFL draft. Josey was the
offensive player of the game for theTigers'
Cotton Bowl victory over Oklahoma State.
He ran for three touchdowns, including
the go-ahead score....
Ball State receiver Willie Snead is
giving up his final year of eligibility
to enter the NFL draft. Last season,
Snead had 106 receptions for 1,516
and 15 touchdowns all single-
season school records. He also was a
first-team all-Mid-American Conference
selection and was a semifinalist for the
Biletnikoff Award....
Tennessee linebacker A.J. Johnson is
returning to school for his senior season
rather than entering the NFL draft....
Florida State's 34-31 win over
Auburn on Monday was watched by
an average of 25.6 million viewers on
ESPN. That's down 3 percent from the
26.4 million for Alabama's rout of Notre
Dame last season. Auburn's last-minute
victory over Oregon in 2011 averaged
27.3 million viewers.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON -Jay
Gruden will interview with
the Washington Redskins
today, said a person
familiar with the team's
coaching search, making
the Cincinnati Bengals
offensive coordinator the
sixth known candidate to
meet with general manag-
er Bruce Allen.
The person spoke to
The Associated Press on
Tuesday on condition of
anonymity because the
team does not confirm
interviews in advance.
Gruden is a popular
name among the five
NFL teams without a
head coach. He inter-
viewed Tuesday with the
Tennessee Titans and has
drawn interest from at
least two other teams.
Allen has already met
with Seattle Seahawks
offensive coordinator
Darrell Bevell, Dallas
Cowboys special teams
coach Rich Bisaccia,
Carolina Panthers de-
fensive coordinator Sean
McDermott, Baltimore
Ravens offensive coordi-
nator Jim Caldwell and
New York Giants defensive
coordinator Perry Fewell.

Source: Browns to
interview McAdoo: A person
familiar with the matter said Cleveland
will interview Green Bay quarterbacks
coach Ben McAdoo about its head
coaching job. McAdoo, who spent the
past two seasons working with Aaron
Rodgers, will meet with Browns CEO


Joe Banner and owner Jimmy Haslam
this week, said the person, who spoke
to the AP on condition of anonymity
because the team is not publicizing
information about the search.

Around the league: Tight
end Daniel Fells and three other players
with NFL experience are among five
signed by the Giants. The team also signed
receiver Preston Parker, linebacker Spencer
Adkins, offensive lineman Troy Kropog and
kicker-punter Brandon McManus, the only
one without NFL experience....
Saints coach Sean Payton said
linebacker Parys Haralson has a torn
pectoral muscle and has been placed on
injured reserve, ending his season....
The Redskins acquired another one
of Robert Griffin Ill's former Baylor
teammates, signing receiver David
Gettis to a reserve-future contract.
Griffin and Gettis played together for
two seasons at Baylor....
A person familiar with Rob
Gronkowski's knee injury said the
New England Patriots'tight end will
have surgery Thursday. Gronkowski
missed the first six games of the season
following offseason operations on his
back and left forearm. In his seventh
game back, he tore the ACL and MCL on
his right knee on Dec. 8 in a 27-26 win
over the Cleveland Browns....
A New Jersey man sued the NFL,
accusing it of pricing average fans out of
the Super Bowl. Josh Finkelman said the
NFL only made 1 percent of all tickets
available to the public for purchase at
face value. He said that means most fans
must buy their tickets on the secondary
market, where they can command
thousands of dollars....
Houston fired 16 assistant coaches,
including defensive coordinatorWade
Phillips and offensive coordinator Rick
Dennison, following the recent hiring of
coach Bill O'Brien.

Miami, GM part ways


By STEVEN WINE
ASSOCIATED PRESS
MIAMI -Jeff Ireland
is out after six seasons as
general manager of the
Miami Dolphins, who
failed to reach the playoffs
the past five years.
In a brief announce-
ment Tuesday, Ireland
and owner Stephen Ross
said they mutually agreed
to part ways. Ireland had
been unpopular with fans
for several years, and a
late-season collapse by
the team last month left
his job in jeopardy.
The Dolphins, who
finished 8-8, said they
would conduct an
immediate search for
a replacement to lead
football operations.
Still to be determined
is Ireland's role in a
locker-room bullying
scandal that drew national
scrutiny. The NFL has yet
to release a report on its
investigation into the case.
Ireland's departure
follows Monday's firing
of offensive coordinator


Mike Sherman. Coach
Joe Philbin will return for
a third season, but other
changes in his staff are
possible.
The Dolphins would
have made the playoffs if
they had won one of their
final two games against
the Bills and Jets. Instead,
they were beaten by a
combined score of 39-7.
Fans vented about
Ireland in recent years,
and at several games a
small plane flew over the
stadium tugging a banner
that called for him to be
fired.
Ireland said he was
leaving the best organi-
zation in football after
meeting with Ross to
discuss the direction of
the franchise.
"Steve and I came to an
agreement that the best
thing moving forward for
all parties would be to
part ways," Ireland said
in a statement. "I'd like
to thank Steve for all his
support and kindness.
I've had the opportunity
to work with some of the


most amazing people
during this time, and I'd
like to thank them all from
the bottom of my heart."
Ross had considered
hiring a football czar
over Ireland and Philbin.
Instead he'll replace his
GM.
'After a series of
discussions, we both
felt that it was in our
mutual best interest to
part ways," Ross said in a
statement. "Jeff was a loyal
and dedicated member
of the Dolphins and we
wish him and his family
nothing but the best."
Ross spent more than
$100 million in guaran-
teed money last offseason
to upgrade the roster, and
the investment delivered
only slight improvement
from a 7-9 record in 2012.
Ireland, a protege of
Bill Parcells, was hired as
general manager in 2008,
and the Dolphins won
the AFC East in his first
season. But they haven't
been above .500 since, the
longest such stretch in
franchise history.

Cavs acquire Deng; Bulls waive Bynum


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
INDEPENDENCE,
Ohio -With their season
quickly sliding toward yet
another trip to the NBA
lottery, the Cleveland
Cavaliers had to do some-
thing to slow their freefall
toward irrelevance.
They needed a scorer,
a defender, a leader, and
perhaps most impor-
tantly, someone to show
their young players how
to win.
Luol Deng fills every
hole.
The Cavs acquired
Deng, a two-time All-
Star small forward with
Chicago, early Tuesday
in a trade from the Bulls
for Andrew Bynum, the


enigmatic center whom
Cleveland signed this
summer but recently
dismissed for detrimental
conduct.
In Deng, the Cavs
believe they're getting a
multi-faceted player.
"He's a guy who has
won and won deep in
the playoffs," Cavs coach
Mike Brown said. "He
has the ability to score,
defend, moves well
without the basketball,
knows how to play of-
fense very well, can post
up, score off the screens,
versatile. He brings a lot
of everything."

DURHAM, N.C. No.
16 Duke debuted its
lowest national ranking in
six years and spent half
the game making a case
for an even worse one.
But once Rodney Hood
got rolling, the Blue Devils
were back on track.
Hood scored 15 of his 27
points in the second half
of Duke's 79-57 victory
over Georgia Tech (9-6, 0-2

Quinn Cook added
13 points and slumping

right to swap first-round
choices in 2015 if the
Cavs are not in the lottery.
As expected, the Bulls
waived Bynum, who
has bad knees and has
played 24 games the past
two seasons. Bynum was
due $6 million on a $24
million, two-year contract
he signed with Cleveland
in July, and the Bulls
would have had to pay
him if he was kept past 5

offer him more money
than anyone else.

In Cleveland, C.J. Miles set a team

In New York, Carmelo Anthony

minutes left.
Wade finished with
eight rebounds and eight
assists for Miami, which
got 11 points from Ray
Allen.
Anthony Davis led the
Pelicans with 22 points
and 12 rebounds, most of
his numbers coming in
the first half. Eric Gordon
scored 15 and Tyreke
Evans added 13 for New
Orleans (15-18).


Wade found a base-
line-cutting James for an
alley-oop dunk early in
the third, and that seemed
to be the spark Miami
needed. The Heat shot
61 percent in the third,
outscoring the Pelicans
32-21 and with James
nearly outscoring them by
himself, putting up 16 in
the period.
And in the fourth, the
Heat wasted no time
taking full control. Allen's
3-pointer from the same
spot where he connected
with 5.2 seconds left
in Game 6 of the NBA
Finals started a 7-0 run to
start the period, with the
margin growing steadily
from there in Miami's final
game before setting out to
play its next six away from
home.


It was very much a tale
of two halves New
Orleans was great in the
first but not in the second.

"I just have never come

whether they're a voter
or just a fan, that doesn't
think Greg Maddux is a
Hall of Famer and one
of the greatest pitchers
who ever pitched," The
Boston Globe's Nick
Cafardo said Tuesday. "I
can't imagine someone
not voting for him. So
I would guess that he's
going to break Seaver's
record."
Ken Gurnick of MLB.

for the Los Angeles
Herald Examiner, said
Tuesday the only player
he voted for was Jack
Morris, on the writers'
ballot for the 15th and


final time after falling 42
votes shy last year.
"To me, I didn't exclude
Maddux. I excluded
everybody from that

Greg Maddux, it was
about the entire era. I

Gurnick said Morris
also was the only player
he voted for in 2013 and
added he intends to ab-

TARPONS
FROM PAGE 1
"I took a shot on my left
ankle and (it was so cold)
it hurt," Ruth said of the
strike in the 60th minute.
Not that it was a surprise
on a night when the
temperature had dropped
to 41 degrees during the
second half and felt even
colder with the occasional
icy gust of wind.
Charlotte coach Toni
Ivankovic liked what she
saw from her team, which
was playing without
senior Taylor Doeble.
"Coming off a break
like we did for two weeks
and we really hadn't been
able to practice with most
of the girls doing tour-
naments and travel and
stuff," Ivankovic said. "We
had very little numbers
at practice, so you always
worry how it's going to be."
But the Tarpons looked
fine.
Charlotte grabbed the
lead in the 38th minute as
Ruth played a nifty diag-
onal ball ahead which
Emilie Booth smashed
past Lemon Bay keeper
Alec Butler.
"I was just trying to get
onto Emilie's foot so she
could score," Ruth said.
It wasn't an undeserved
lead the Tarpons had a
4-3 advantage in shots on
target before the goal, not
including another goal
by Ruth earlier that had
been disallowed because
she was ruled offsides.



BOBCATS

dangerous play foul on
Port Charlotte, forcing
a free kick inside the
penalty area.
The Pirates, all lined up
on the goal line, blocked
it, but Gregoire got the
rebound and drilled a
shot off Matt Menendez
and into the net in the
37th minute to tie the
match at the half.
The Bobcats took the
lead when Sumaljag
flipped a pass to Gaspar
Margaryan, who blasted it
home in the 55th minute.


MANTAS
FROM PAGE 1
After playing the first 65
minutes without a quality
scoring opportunity,
speedy Lemon Bay senior
Andy Kappelman set up
the first chance by taking
control of a loose ball and
racing down the side-
line. After being fouled,
Kappleman sent a free
kick high into the air, and
it was headed into the
net by Sean Winterstein
for what proved to be the
game-winner.
"I definitely think we
were outplayed," Mantas
coach Zenon Luzniak said.
"But we got the win and it's
tough when the weather
sucks. To get out of here
on the road with a win is
always a good thing."
In the final 15 minutes,
the Bulldogs continued
to dominate possession,
and narrowly missed a
chance off the head of
Juan Villafuerte.
"That's all we worked
on yesterday was
finishing," DeSoto County
coach Tracy Hay said.
"There was definitely a
lack of... not intensity,
because they did want to
play, but there wasn't that
fire. Sometimes the game

But the Pirates struck
back two minutes later
when senior forward Roni
Anarumo broke alone
on another counter and
scored to tie it.
North Port led in shots
18-11 and in corner kicks
6-2. Still, Port Charlotte

had few complaints about
his team's play.

DeSoto County suffered
a similar loss to Cardinal A..
Mooney in December.
Despite dominating
possession, the Bulldogs
allowed three goals in the
final 20 minutes of that
game to lose by one. Hay
was frustrated with her
defense after that game,
but didn't feel the same
way on Tuesday.
"I thought our defense
played really well and held
up," she said. "The bottom
line is, anytime you keep

Still, his team's effort left
Bobcats coach Tom Tintor
wanting more.
"We could have played
much better, this was a
classic case of Christmas
rust," said Tintor, whose
team took two weeks off
during the holiday season.
"We weren't playing very
good defense, we were
giving up the drive and we
were getting in silly foul
trouble."
Lemon Bay made things


interesting late in the
game, using six points
from KatelynWeston and
four from Kacyn Shirley
to rally to 52-44 midway
through the fourth quarter.
Two well-timed 3-pointers
from Smith allowed North
Port to stave off the rally.
Shirley had a career-high
23 points in the loss, and
added four steals, five
rebounds and three assists
in what coach Mike Young
called one of her better
efforts this season. The
junior point guard was the
lone Manta Ray to score
in double digits, however,


and the Bobcats' scoring
depth was too much for
Lemon Bay. Smith (21
points), Rohanda Burke
(12) and Jel Dosen (10)
all hit double digits, and
North Port dominated the
boards, 28-19.
"(Shirley) really brought
it hard tonight. Without
her, it's really hard," Young
said. "We started out great
and had a good finish, but
they just ate us alive on
the boards.
"It's the same thing I
have said all year: We have
to learn to sustain our
spurts and maintain the


pace of play."
The loss dampened the
celebration for Kayla Reid,
who was honored during
a pre-game ceremony
for collecting her 1,000th
rebound over the holiday
break. She had 10 re-
bounds Turesday.

By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

An American Craft Endeavors festival, which is
part of Howard Alan Events, is a different kind of
experience for the attendees.
At this weekend's 17th Annual Sullivan Street Craft
Festival in Punta Gorda, more than 100 crafters from
all over the country will be lining the street to present
their creations. The show contains many Florida-
based artists, and is always a highly attended event.
Megan McMahan, who works in operations for
Howard Alan Events, explained that the reason for
the public's continued interest is because their craft
shows offer a little something extra.
"For our art shows, the crafters have to hand-make
everything themselves," she said. "And they have to
appear at the show. At every booth, the crafter will be
there presenting their original work."
What that practice does is make the consumer's
purchasing process so much more personal. You want
to learn about a crafter's techniques or ask him or
her questions about their inspiration when creating
a particular piece? The artist who actually crafted the
item will be right there to talk to you, and even to
demonstrate how they work.
A wide selection of crafts will be presented at the

from $15 handmade silver jewelry, to life-sized
sculptures with prices in excess of $50,000. Each artist
and crafter is selected by Howard Alan Events through
the most discerning jury process, which McMahan
says ensures onlythe finest exhibits.
"We have brought in a lot of national artists, but
there are also many Florida-based artists," she said.
"This has been a very popular craft festival for us
over the years."
Since its inception, the Sullivan Street Craft
Festival has continued to grow and highlight the
talents of many unique crafters, providing the Punta
Gorda area with one of its most enjoyable traditions.

Soon he became an Elvis Tribute Artist performing
and competing as for several years. In 2004, he was
voted on by Graceland as being a top 10 Elvis Tribute
Artist in the World. Later wanting to impress a girl
who loved Neil Diamond, Keith called her on the
phone and in his best Neil voice sang her"Hello
Again"from the "Jazz Singer."
That became her song, she
became his wife and he
Became The Diamond

In 1'":4 Crai, and Lea Culver alone vwilth Craig
parent; G:eorge anid lhith, opened ithe very fir;tl
Culver's in the family's hometown of Sauk City, Wis.
Since the initial Culver's franchise was opened in
1990, the company has expanded to more than
450 family-owned restaurants across
19 states and it is still growing.
The reason forthe rapid expansion is simple -
people love Culver's. Steve Buchmeier, who is the
operating partner of the new Port Charlotte franchise,
which just opened up on Dec. 9,2013, says fans of the
restaurant seek it out wherever they travel.
"Since the first day Culver's was started in
1984, it has been brought up on the ingredients
of fresh, quality food," he said. "When you come
in, your food doesn't start cooking until you place
your order."
Buchmeier describes the theme of the
restaurant as "fast, casual,"
but tihouqh yOu do q aelt

Our BulltterBurger is made with
fresh beef, which has never been frozen,"
Buchmeier said. "It's called the 'ButterBurger'
because the roll is lightly buttered and toasted.
The other staple of our menu would have to be our
fresh, frozen custard each day, we have vanilla,
chocolate and the 'flavor of the day.'"
The"flavor of the day" could be anything from
Chunky Peanut Butter Dream to Chocolate Caramel
Twist, and it is made daily in the restaurant. The
possibilities of what it could be each day are
practically limitless there are currently
95 flavors on the list. In the lobby of the restaurant
is a cooler that holds about two dozen different
flavors in pint containers to take home.
In addition to the burgers, there are melts and
sandwiches, soups and
Salads, and

even dinner items like fried chicken, chop steak, pot
roast, butterfly shrimp and North Atlantic cod. And
what would a Wisconsin-based restaurant chain be
without Wisconsin Cheese Curds on the menu?
For the uninitiated, Buchmeier explained that
cheese curds, a uniquely Wisconsin delicacy, are formed
as a by-product of the cheese-making process.


rThis
is just
one of many
burgers Culver's offers.
Visit www.culvers.com
for more on their menu.


"In the cheese-making process, what's left inside
the vat is scraped into little balls of white and
cheddar cheese," he said. "Then we lightly bread it
and fry it."
Though Culver's doesn't offer a breakfast
menu, they are open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.,
seven days a week. Buchmeier said that so far, he
has been very pleased with the Port Charlotte
(o:nimunity's embracing of some of
the best food items the dairy state
ha ;to offer.
We've stayed really busy, and it's
exceeded our expectations," he
said. "We have something for
everyone here, and we're much
more than just a burger joint."

'A Tribute to Broadway' returns


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Cultural Center of Charlotte County was created
to enrich the lives of Charlotte County residents and
visitors by offering educational, recreational, and
social and fitness activities.
With an eight-acre campus, featuring a 500+seat
theater and a 7,200 square foot conference center,
they can accommodate seminars, banquets and
gatherings of any size for the local community. But
it takes funds for maintain a facility of this size, and
the Center relies on volunteers, donations and the
support of their neighbors to thrive.
One of the primary fundraisers of the year is the
annual show presented by Cul-Cen Productions, a compa-
nythat is made up of a group of dedicated and talented
volunteers. This year's show, running at 7 p.m. forthree
days, Jan. 16-18, is entitled "A Tribute to Broadway II,"
and musical director Jim Reuter says this production
promises to be just as popular as the previous one.

Some of the cast from the Cul-Cen Productions of "A Tribute
to Broadway II' with musical director Jim Reuter at top
center in back row.


"Cul-Cen was started about 30 years ago, as a
means to raise funds for the Cultural Center," he said.
"Last year, we had three shows and we sold out every
concert."
The 2014 "Tribute to Broadway" will include
numbers from "Fiddler on the Roof," "The Wizard of
Oz" and "Grease." Reuter said that because of the age


of most of the Cul-Cen performers, some
of song lyrics from "Grease," which is abo it a Qr:oup
of high school friends, have been changed aro:unrid
just a bit.
"In our production, this is the 35th reunion of:r
Riddell High School," he said. "We're doing four ;oriq,
from 'Grease' with different dialogue."

Roller Derby is more than a show


El '. January 8 14,2014


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Remember that Roller Derby show you used to
watch on TV in the 70s? Sorry to break it to you -
that wasn't real.
Much like "professional" wrestling was back in the
day, the stunts on that show were all scripted, even
though the actors in both shows were undeniably
athletes.
Todaythere are still roller derby teams around, but
these are genuine. When the "bouts" are held, bones
could be broken and blood may be spilled, but if you ask
any of the competitors, they will tell you it is all worth it.
The North River Rolling Renegades is a Sarasota/
Manatee-based team that competes all around the
state of Florida. Jamie Tyler, known on the team as
"Con EB Good/says that they just completed their
first full season.

"We had 10 bouts last season, between February
and September," she said. "We have two nights a
week practice, and occasionally, we do a trail skate
outdoors for endurance. That's whythis is a good way
to maintain physical fitness."
Connie "K-Oss" lachetta says that the basic rules of
a roller derby bout are pretty simple there are five
women on each team.
"You have four blockers and one jammer per
team," she said. "The object of the sport is for the
blockers not to let the jammers score. The jammers
get a point per skater that they pass, and there are
two halves, each lasting 30 minutes."
On this level, roller derby skaters do not get paid, so
these women do it for the love of the sport. That also
means that most of them have actual careers outside
of the roller rink. Besides the names of the skaters -
Trace Evidence, Ima Problem, Evel Diva, Nikki Stric-9
and more one of the most fascinating aspects of
this team is the double life that many of them lead.
When they're not banging on the track, Rockabilly
Red is a dual-enrollment coordinator at State College
of Florida and Con EB Good is an attorney. But when
they're with the team, they are sisters.
"I love the girls,"Tyler said. "I1 grew up in Pensacola
and when I moved here, I didn't really know anyone,
and my mom also did this when I was younger. It's
great to have this fitness outlet."
lachetta is pretty quiet when she's off the track,
but once she laces up those skates, it's game on.
"For me, it brings out another side of me," she
said. "I don't like crowds, but when I'm here, I don't
mind it. This is a sisterhood we're all very close."

Crosswords, romance, and a battle of wits in '2 Across'


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT

If you're a fan of witty dialogue and romantic
comedy, you'll want to join Janet and Josh on the
Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), an 80-minute ride
from San Francisco's International Airport to their
last stop in East Bay.
"2 Across," by Jerry Mayer, will be performed
from Jan. 10-18 at the Charlotte Players Langdon
Playhouse.
Mayer, a Playwright and TV script writer ("All in
the Family" and "The Facts of Life") writes about
real people building relationships while solving


life's puzzles. Janet, an uptight, mace-packing
psychologist, is less than thrilled when Josh, an
unkempt, free-spirited out-of-work actor, boards
late and asks her to move from his "lucky seat."
He's Jewish; she's Catholic. Both use entirely
different strategies when solving New York Times
crossword puzzles. They're unlikely to be headed for
romance or are they?
New Zealand-born Artistic Director, lan Bisset,
has worked as a Port Charlotte Players' stage
manager, actor, and director for more than 10 years.
In 2013 he directed the radio play "It's a Wonderful
Life" and acted as Butch in "Leading Ladies."
"After reading the first 10 pages of"2 Across,";'


I fell in love with the play," said Bisset. "I love that
it's all about conversation and that both characters
are outspoken. One is afraid of making mistakes,
while the other is not afraid to take chances. The
fact that the action takes place on a train makes
perfect sense."
Bisset both directs and acts as Josh in "2 Across."
Jenni Elliott, who plays Janet, recently relocated to
Port Charlotte from Australia. Australians and New
Zealanders often disagree, and when Elliott audi-
tioned for the part of Janet, Bisset, good-naturedly
reminded her that she was lucky to get the part.
Elliott and Bisset act as antagonists who become
possible lovers in the play.
A former Director of Marketing in Australia,
Elliott is no stranger to the stage. She's acted in
community theaters in Australia and was thrilled to
discover the nearby Port Charlotte Players, Venice
Theater, and Lemon Bay Playhouse.


"My husband and I moved to Port Charlotte
for the golf," she explained, "and we never
expected to find so many community theaters and
orchestras here."
Elliott's husband, Rick Stannard, recently joined
the Venice Concert Band as a trombonist.
The Langdon Playhouse is located in the
Charlotte Players Community Theater Center,
1182 Market Circle, Port Charlotte. "2 Acrossfa
comedy of crosswords and romance, is playing at
7:30 p.m., Jan. 10-11 and Jan. 16-18, and at 2 p.m.
on Sunday, Jan. 12. Adult tickets cost $15. Student
tickets are $8. Tickets are available online at www.
CharlottePlayers.org or by phone at 941-625-4175,
ext. 220.
Future plays at the Langdon Playhouse include
"Same Time Next Year" by Bernard Slade on Feb. 7-9
and Feb. 13-15; and "Drinking Habits" by Tom Smith
on April 3-5 and April 10-12.

music were sent to their northern homes so they
could practice on their own before they came back
to Charlotte County. Videotapes demonstrating the
show's choreography were even made and sent to
the performers.
By the time Fall came around, and everyone was
back together again, the frequency of the rehearsals
was increased.
"I think they (the performers) do an awesome job
with it," Reuter said. "It's really a big commitment, and
the drummer, and guitar, bass and saxophone players,
have to be at practice just as much as the singers."

performers, this production is a way for them to
show their love for the Cultural Center, "the place
that friendship built."
"This is a group of volunteers that comes out here,"
he said. "They range in age from 14to somewhere in

PROVIDED BY THE
SOUTH COUNTY JAZZ CLUB
The Jim Wellen Quintet, with special guest
Chris Brown, salutes the music of legendary jazz
singer Lee Wiley with a concert from 2 p.m. to
4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9, at the Venice Art
Center, 390 Nokomis Ave., Venice. Presented
by the South County Jazz Club, admission to
the concert is $5 for members and $10 for
non-members.
Tenor sax player Wellen and vocalist Brown
will be accompanied by Dick Reynolds on piano,
Dave Trefethen, bass, and Johnny Moore, drums.
One of the great jazz vocalists of all time, Lee
Wiley performed through the'40s,'50s and '60s.
She did prodigious recordings of standards by
George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Rogers & Hart
and others.
She interpreted them in her uniquely intimate
way, invariably backed by small combos of
first-rate musicians, such as Bud Freeman, Fats
Waller, Billy Butterfield and her two RCA albums,
"West of the Moon"(1956) and"A Touch of Blues"
(1957), are standouts. Lee Wiley effectively
stepped out of the limelight in the 1960s, except
for a brief appearance at the 1972 New York Jazz
Festival. She merited greater fame than was
accorded her in her lifetime and since.

FEATURES EDITOR
Installation art is becoming synonymous with the
Sarasota Museum of Art/SMOA, a division of Ringling
College of Art and Design.
Following on the heels of the museum's street-side
installation of a fantasy castle of twigs by Irish artist
Patrick Dougherty, will be a colorful creation by Lisa
Hoke inside the historic Sarasota High School on
U.S. 41, just south of the intersection of Mound
(U.S. 41) and U.S. 301.
Area residents were invited to drop off their
colorful cereal boxes, cardboard beverage containers,
gilded gift boxes, produce boxes and more this fall
for Hoke to use in her current installation in the old
school building with strange blue window coverings.
Except for the windows and the twig castle in
its front yard, the high school looks like so many
1920s-era high schools that dotted the country from
Pennsylvania and Ohio to Missouri and even in
this case Florida.
Hoke, who lives in New York City, has become
known for her monumental works made entirely

"We're reinventing a historic structure that's
central to the experience Sarasotans have of their
community,";' Sturkis said in the release. "At the same
time, we're connecting Sarasota with the larger arts
community around the nation. The ARTmuse program
attracts world-renowned artists and is helping to put
us on the art world map while we are a museum in
the making. It's very exciting'."
The colorful installation will be open for viewing
Jan. 15 through Feb. 5 at the museum, which will be
the city's"first art museum devoted to modern and


contemporary art."
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places,
the building will offer some 60,000 square feet of
exhibition space, a 110-seat auditorium, sculpture
court, cafe, classrooms and studios. Of the $22
million needed for the museum conversion, nearly
$17 million is in hand, according to a recent release.
The Ringling College of Art and Design is one of
the country's leading art schools, offering bachelor
degrees in fine arts and a BA in the business of art
and design.
Hoke's installation work offers the public good
opportunityfora glimpse of what will come. For

immediate audience.
"We don't have a signature song,"
said Joy. "We like to interact with the


audience and each other, and no two
performances are ever the same."
Joy, often labeled a "blonde
energizer bunny," encourages audience
participation.
"I use a cordless mike and sing and
dance with fans during a show. During


Brothers back for a month-long stand this
March in NewYork.
Going over these highlights, all I said
was,"They sure are keeping you busy."
That's when Gregg took the opportunity
to set me straight.
"These days, when you say'they'you
mean'me,'" he said, in kind of a low growl
that actually sounded kind of bluesy over
the phone. A little like John Lee Hooker.
At this point in his career, Allman
insists on calling the shots. At 65, with
nearly 50 years in the business, he figures
he's earned it.
That's consistent with the thoughts he
put down in his 2012 autobiography,"My
Cross to Bear,"which is the basis forthe
upcoming movie. The book covers Allman's
life, his early bands, the formation and rise
.f the Allman Brothers Band, the death of
hi brotr:her Duane, the rock superstardom
of the 1']Os, his marriage to Cher (and
o:n,oe :,hers), the rough trip through
the I',:: his battles with narcotics and
al,:ohol the renewed success of the Allman
Brother; Band, his complex relationship
vvith one o :f its founding members Dickey
Bets his children, and the health problems
that riearIy killed him.
uregl account of it is all there, and
taI.iri control of his life is a big part of
,hat; h enabled him to keep going.
"That's the way everyone wants
it at first, but it doesn't happen
that way,";' he explained.
"After a while, you get
control, that's the way it
should be."
Now, he's got a good lineup
with the Allman Brothers Band,


special dance events, contestants compete
in twist and conga competitions. People
need to get awayfrom their troubles to
relax and enjoy themselves, and our music
allows them to let the world go away, even
if it's just for a little while," she said.

GREGG ALLMAN'S YEAR
All My Friends: Celebrating the Songs and Voice of Gregg Allman, Friday at
the Fox Theater, Atlanta, Ga. Jackson Browne, Vince Gill, Widespread Panic See the

Midnight Rider: The Gregg Allman Story. A feature film based on "My Cross to Bear"
by Greg Allman and Alan Light (William Morrow, 2012), now being shot at Savannah

AlIlman Brothers Band at the Beacon. Celebrating their 45th anniversary, the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band will play 10 shows beginning March 7 during their
annual residency at the Beacon Theater in NewYork City. Expect lots of guest stars. The
group will also release two live albums and a DVD in 2014, according to Rolling Stone.


which gathers every year for a month of
shows in New York, a few other dates and a
couple of camp-out festivals, including the
popular Wanee Fest in Live Oak. The rest of
the year, Gregg plays with his own hand-
picked band and jams with old friends
when the opportunity presents itself.
One of those times will come this week,
when guys like Jackson Browne, Taj Mahal,
Dr. John, Trace Adkins and many others
gather at the Fox Theater for a tribute. The
AlIlman Brothers Band will also perform.This
is something Gregg didn't plan himself.
"A bunch of my buds got together and
dreamed it up, I guess,"Allman said of the
show. "It should be a good one."
He said he wants to do an album of
all-original songs this year, and recently
wrote a song with saxophonist Mindi
Abair for her upcoming album. He talked
about getting readyto record another
album with producer T-Bone Burnett, the
"other half"of his 2011 hit record Low
Country, a collection of blues classics.
"We were going to do that in
December, but I have so damn much on
my plate ..."he said.


include "Blue Suede Shoes,""Under the
Boardwalk," and "Girls Just Want to
Have Fun."
Upcoming performances for Joy
and the Gang are on their website.
From 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Friday,
Jan. 10, they'll be at the Moose Lodge


The Gregg Allman Band consists of Scott
Sharrard, guitar; Ben Stivers, keyboards;
Steve Potts, drums; Jay Collins, horns; Ron
Johnson, bass; Marc Quinones, percussion.
He loves his home in Savannah, but
he was looking forward to coming to
Sarasota.
"I have a lot of good friends there. It's
good to get back and play for them,";' he
said. "I like to fish there's good fishing
there, also."
That sounds cool. I wouldn't mind go-
ing out looking for some snook or redfish
with Gregg Allman. I guess if Gregg wants
to load up his plate, that's what he's going
to do. If he wants to go fishing, well he's
earned that, too.
At the time of press, there was "a
slim chance that last minute tickets will
be available." Check for last-minute
ticket releases at circussarasota.org or call
941-355-9805.
The showtime is 7 p.m. today (Jan. 8)

n Sunday, the Port Charlotte
Public Library hosted the
Downtown Abbey Tea & Book
Discussion to celebrate the season
premiere showing on PBS later in the
evening. Dr. Martha Bireda, Executive
Director of the Blanchard House, gave
a lecture on the rigid class structure
of the Edwardian era highlighted by
the popular series. Library staff served
tea, scones and finger sandwiches,
and ended the event with a raffle and
silent auction. We'll have photos from
the event in next week's Port Charlotte
Herald, but in the meantime, here's
a big thank you to the Port Charlotte
Library staff and volunteers who put
on a wonderful tea that served about
90 guests. Well done!

Sew much to see at Charlotte Sewing Studio


By NATALIE SHARBAUGH
HERALD CORRESPONDENT
Many businesses are closed at
9:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning. But
Charlotte Sewing Studio is bustling
with activity. Customers shop for sup-
plies, seek information on upcoming
classes and browse the showroom filled
with the latest sewing machines in a


casual atmosphere that would make
anyone feel as though they're among
friends.
Charlotte Sewing Studio is an
independent dealer for Bernina and
Husqvarna Viking, two companies that
are known for making some of the
world's highest-quality sewing
machines. One glance at the studio's
showroom and you'll realize that these


aren't your grandmother's sewing
machines. Brightly illuminated but-
tons and touch-screen LCD panels
adorn many of the machines, which
are now more like computers. But
technophobes need not worry; free
guide classes are offered to anyone who
purchases a machine at the store.

ADVOCATE'S CORNER

Earthjustice lawyer to speak Jan. 18


By RENEE LePERE
HERALD CORRESPONDENT
The Environmental
Confederation of Southwest
Florida invites Charlotte
County residents to learn
about some of the environ-
mental issues facing not only
Florida, but the county.
David Guest, environmental
lawyer, of the Earthjustice Law
firm, will discuss current envi-
ronmental litigation effecting
Florida. Green slime the
algae bloom seen on many
canals and responsible for fish
kills red tide and water re-
leases from Lake Okeechobee
are among the issues Florida
is currently facing. Guest will
make a presentation about
these issues and take ques-
tions from the audience.
The public part of the
meeting will take place from
11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Jan. 18,
at Donato's Italian Restaurant,
1900 Tamiami Trail, (Carrousel


Mall) Port Charlotte. Tickets
are $25 for ECOSWF members
and $35 for nonmembers.
The Environmental
Confederation of Southwest
Florida is an "umbrella orga-
nization for those interested
in protecting and preserving
the natural flora and fauna
of Florida and protecting
historical sites," according
to BeckyAyech, ECOSWF
spokeswoman.
In the past, ECOSWF has
been involved in legal cases
including the dredging of
Midnight Pass, phosphate
mining, numeric nutrient
pollution and back pumping
into Lake Okeechobee.
Guest said one of the
biggest issues facing Florida
is the "water transfer rule." In
2008, the 1lth Circuit Court
upheld the Environmental
Protection's creation of a
permanent exemption from

Pirates JV soccer
team scratches out
win over Tarpons
By CHUCK BALLARO
SPORTS WRITER
The old sports cliche goes, "When
these two teams get together, you can
throw out the record book."
During the Dec. 20 JV girls soccer
game between Charlotte High School
and Port Charlotte, perhaps the more
accurate line would have been, "You
can throw out the score book."
For the better part of one 30-min-
ute half and part of another, neither
team got to sniff a goal, much less
score one.
Finally, Sabrina Lacombe, the
Pirates' bespectacled sophomore star,
was able to grab her own rebound off
a Cheyenne Gaudemer save and blast
it into the net in the 40th minute for
the only goal in a 1-0 Port Charlotte
victory to earn a sweep of the season
series over the Tarpons, defeating

HERALD PHOTOS BY DELORES SAVAS
Delores'sister, Marilyn, who was nicknamed"Sweetpea," feeds Sweetpea the calf with Delores
looking on.


A cow named Sweetpea


*&*


his is another story of special
animals that I had the pleasure
of having in my life through the
years. I have been blessed to have had
the opportunity to get to really know
and appreciate the different personali-
ties of all these creatures and to consid-
er them my friends.
As the Christmas season wraps up,
thoughts of a special cow who was
unique comes to mind. She would have
made a perfect manger animal as she
had a sweet welcoming disposition.
Little did I know when I answered
an ad in the newspaper placed by the
wife of a rancher in Arcadia asking for
someone to give a home to a calf, that I
would be setting myself up to become a
replacement mom to a big brown-eyed
creature for years.
The rancher's wife wanted a safe
home for the calf that she had been
feeding since the calf's mother had
died. She had been bottle feeding the
calf and did not want her to become
one of the cattle headed for the market.
One look at the young calf that looked
sad and dejected won me over. She was
loaded up in a big dog cage and was
headed for her new home bellowing all
the way.
Naming her was the easy thing to do.
It had to be "Sweetpea" named after
my sister, Marilyn, who was nicknamed
Sweetpea by a former southern beau.
Marilyn and the cow both had beautiful
big brown eyes. Sister Marilyn at first
was not too pleased to have a cow carry
the same name, but one look at the calf
with the beautiful eyes won her over.
Once at her new home she was
greeted by six goats, and Annie the dog
who greeted her by rubbing noses. At
first, it was obvious that she was a little
confused as the goats did not resemble
the cattle herd she had been used to
along with their own mooing sounds.
However it did not take her long to get
used to the odd creatures as she settled
into the goat house with her new family.
I began my motherly duty of bottle
feeding her every morning and night.
Once she became used to the feeding
schedule, heaven help me if I was late.
Her mooing would wake the most
devout sleeper. I watched her grow from
a scrawny calf to a beautiful black cow.
And as big as she was, she was just as
gentle. She loved company and heaven
help any man who came on the prop-
erty and did not go to pet her. It did not
matter if it was a repair man, delivery
man or relative they all had to pay
her homage. Sweetpea would moo
loudly until they came to the fence. She
was very partial to the male species.
However she also welcomed other
strange animals who came inside the
goat enclosure.

s corn.


Sweetpea had a disposition to match her
name, and was especially fond of gentlemen
callers.
One day when I looked out the
window there was a mother wild boar
sow with her eight piglets eating the
goat food. Sweetpea was right alongside
of them, watching them feed. No fights;
Sweetpea, the goats and the wild boar
sow all got along.
After a while they stopped coming
and moved on. The wild sow even
tolerated me when I went out to take
pictures. I sensed that she knew I was
not going to hurt her or her young.
Animals can tell, you know.
When the time came for me to move
on, I found a safe home for Sweetpea
with a farmer who had another cow that
he kept as a pet. After she was brought
to her new home she broke down a
fence trying to come with me. I was
glad the farmer understood. It was a sad
time, but I was relieved that Sweetpea
would be safe.
When I visited her eight months later
she was way out in the field. When I
called her name, she came galloping to
me, with her tail flying in the wind and
her big ears flopping and laid her big
head on my shoulder.
She remembered me!
And I will always remember her as a
friend named Sweetpea a cow with
beautiful big brown eyes.

Scavenger hunt benefits Kids with Cancer


HERALD PHOTOS BY BETSY WILLIAMS
Nicole and Vinnie Maugeri Jr. were at odds trying to
determine in which direction they would head first
for the Friday the 13th Photo Scavenger Hunt to
benefit Kids with Cancer.


Sams Subs team members Anthony
Casteloi, 14, his mother Carol, Evelyn
Gilliard who eventually joined another
team, Renee Petro, and Chayse Boule, 6,
were super excited for the start of the
Photo Scavenger Hunt that first started
in the parking lot at the Port Charlotte
Town Center Mall.


Finding a Nativity scene to have their photo taken with was fairly easy for Nina Petro and Evelyn
Gilliard. They stopped at the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church on U.S. 41 south.


Fire Station No. 1 was one of the many stops where teams had to have their photo taken. Posing
with #1 truck and firefighters were Team Nightmare members Anthony Favara, 12, Brie-ann
Sinnott, 11, Daryn Favara, Tara Correia, and Jacei Peterson, 9.


Bank of America was just one
of the stops each team had
to stop at for a photo. Jackie
Dougles'team, Run DMC,
herself, her husband Bobby
taking the photos, Nicole and
Vinnie Maugeri Jr. and Corry
Coxatelli were the winners of
the Photo Scavenger Hunt.

RIGHT: Gulf Pointe Surgery
Center, was one of the stops
made by the Taylor family -
Bobby, Mason, 5, Stephen, 11,
and mom, Michelle Garcia.

PCHS girls soccer fetes TECNRiFOASE &



nine on Senior Night Al'-'A!


By CHUCK BALLARO
HERALD SPORTS WRITER

It seemed a little early for any winter
sport to celebrate senior night, seeing
as Christmas was more than a week
away.
But that's exactly what the Port
Charlotte High School girls soccer
team did as it paid tribute to nine
seniors who were about to play their
final regular season home game
on Dec. 17 against district power
Lakewood Ranch.
Milany Quiles, Jenna Sutter, Rachel
White, Taylor Lindenberger, Veronica
Milo, Yariseliz Sostre, Arayana
Schembri, Karen Arzu and Alexis
Arroyo took that long walk on the track
with their loved ones to receive thanks
from principal Steve Dionisio, head
coach Chip Stec and the undergradu-
ate players, who gave them flowers and
gifts as a sendoff.
Of course, it's not quite the end of
their careers. They have the rest of the
season, and some of them will play
other sports in the spring.
But for many, it's the end, and it
makes Stec sad to see them go, but
happy they're moving on with their
lives.
"Some of them have been here four
years and they're going to be missed
tremendously," Stec said, who lost a
bunch of seniors last year. "I'm losing
nine quality players, but we have some
good incoming freshmen, so that's
good."
Stec said he would miss coaching
them, even if they did make practice
interesting, to say the least.
"They're typical girls, to be honest.


But they were a joy to coach. I never
had an issue with any of them," Stec
said. "I consider it an honor to (be)
their coach."
Even though the final home game
could have gone better, as the
Mustangs won easily, it was still a great
moment to be recognized for all their
achievements.
"I wanted to cry but I was like 'no.' It
was more like a happy thing not sad,"
Milo said. 'And then we lost."
For the girls, it was also bittersweet.
But they leave with some great memo-
ries (story time) and friendships to last
a lifetime.
"There was a big change this year
after we lost a bunch of seniors, but
it was a good experience. I had fun,"
Arroyo said. "Our team story time was
the best."
"It was a lot of fun. I've been around
Alexis and Jenna since we could play
soccer. Being around them my whole
career was fun," Lindenberger said.
"Coach Stec always pushes you to do
better and work as hard as you can."
"It was a great experience coming
in as a freshman. I didn't know what
it would be like, but it's an experience
I'm grateful I did," Sutter said. "Being
a Pirate is the best experience. I bleed
red and black. I never want to be a
Tarpon. Beating Charlotte here in my
sophomore year is my best memory."
"It's been life-changing. I've gotten
so close to these girls, they're like
sisters to me," Milo said, who has been
playing for almost the last month
with a broken wrist. "I've grown up
with these girls and I'm really sad it's
over. Getting Coach Stec was the best
moment I had here."

PIRATES: Port Charlotte battles Charlotte on the girls' pitch


FROM PAGE 1


them 2-0 earlier in the season.
Just five minutes into the match,
Avery Carlton found Kayla Robert point
blank in front of the net, but couldn't
get the ball on net in heavy traffic.
The game became a tug of war be-
tween the 18s until the Lacombe goal,
when the Tarpons kicked it up a notch
in an attempt to tie it.
Charlotte had no less than three


chances to do just that. Deanna
Marques kicked one at Port Charlotte
goalkeeper Stephanie Newcombe, who
juggled it. Somehow, the Pirates got
the ball out of there following a wild
scramble.
Later, Alberts missed on a free kick
just outside the penalty area, and
Carlton moments later on another free
kick found Taylor Burke Melaragno,
who also could find the target, before
Port Charlotte ran out the clock.
Port Charlotte also had its chances.


An earlier Lacombe shot in the first half
just missed, which turned out to be its
best chance before scoring its goal.
Port Charlotte varsity head coach
Chip Stec, who was filling in for IV
coach Bob Theriault, said it was a big
win for his team that has just one game
remaining in its season.
"It was good to see them take a
victory. They've taken a couple tough
ones in the last couple games," Stec
said. "Charlotte played real well and
kept it close."

BRAGGING RIGHTS

at stake in inaugural tourney
By GORDON BOWER, PGH CORRESPONDENT


Punta Gorda has a lot going for
it, but open space isn't on the
list. It's compact, and there's not
much room for recreational activities
like golf courses that take up valuable
acreage suitable for houses or commer-
cial structures.
Nevertheless, the city is blessed with
two outstanding golf venues St.
Andrews South Golf Club and Twin
Isles Country Club. Both were planned
and built several decades ago in Punta
Gorda Isles and Burnt Store Isles, the
two largest residential areas.
The two clubs have long had a friend-
ly relationship, and after Twin Isles'


member Heleen Schouten came up
with the idea of a citywide golf cham-
pionship, they joined forces to create a
new tournament that will identify the
best male and female amateur golfers
in town.
A first for Punta Gorda
Charlie Priester, the general manager
and club professional at St. Andrews,
said, "Quite frankly, someone at Twin
Isles thought of it, and they contacted
us. We welcomed the opportunity to

Take a swing



at golf tourney


olf, while not a sport I personal-
ly enjoy, is a game I have grown
to appreciate with age.
As a child, many summer days were
spent on golf courses with my grand-
parents, avid golfers who did their
very best to instill a love of the sport
in all their grandchildren. While my
cousins and brothers were regarded as
star students, each eventually earn-
ing their own personalized golf bag,
accessories and clubs for Christmas,
I was the rebel often seen doing
backflips and pirouettes on the greens
instead of paying attention to the task
at hand.
My one shining moment in the
game was when I managed to pull
it together long enough to earn a
third-place trophy during a youth
golf tournament. But as I recall, the
competition was fairly slim, and my
inspiration came from the promise of
ice cream with sprinkles.
As I got older, and the promise of
sugary sweet treats lost its appeal, I
grew to learn I would rather play the
part of golf cart chauffeur than try my


hand at playing the actual game.
Today, my family regularly calls on
my perfected driving skills, as their
nonprofit boards always need some
help with the behind-the-scenes work
that goes into putting on charity golf
tournaments. Because I know the
lingo, they hand me the keys to a cart
and put me in charge of delivering
refreshments to the golfers and selling
raffle tickets throughout the game. It's
a fun way for me to enjoy the game
without having to play a round. Plus,
it's for a good cause. Win-win.
Whether you enjoy playing the
game, or have grown to appreciate
golf like me, consider getting involved
in Punta Gorda's very own golf tourna-
ment. Called the City of Punta Gorda
Golf Championship, the tournament
will take place at St. Andrews South
Golf Club and Twin Isles Country Club
Jan. 24-25. Correspondent Gordon
Bower has written all about it in this
week's cover story for the Punta Gorda
Herald. Be sure to read it; the story
continues on pages 8 and 9 of the
PGH.

BUSINESS NEWS

PUNTA GORDA

his weekend will be a very busy

one for those of us in Chamber-
land. It all begins early on
Jan. 11 during the Punta Gorda
Chamber of Commerce's annual
Scottish Laird's Golf Tournament, which
is set to last from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
at Sunnybreeze Golf Course,
8135 SW Sunnybreeze Drive, Arcadia.
The cost for individuals to participate
is $50, which includes 18 holes of golf,
a cart, breakfast and lunch. Foursomes
are $180. Reserve a space by calling the
chamber at 941-639-3720 or by visiting
the online payment center of the cham-
ber's website, www.puntagordachamber.
com.
No matter the level of expertise, all
participants are guaranteed to have a
blast at this tournament. Just ask three-
time winner Team Mullick. Having won
the tournament three out of four times,
they still have problems remembering
how they did it.
Beginners, learners or pros are all
welcome to join the chamber for this
annual tribute to golf's Scottish roots,
which will be accompanied by a few
classic Scottish beverages and the
donning of the kilt.
Also this weekend, the Punta Gorda
Chamber is bringing back the annual
Sullivan Street Arts and Craft Fair,
which will take place along the length
of Sullivan Street in downtown Punta
Gorda.
The fair will last from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
both Saturday and Sunday, so come on
down to meet artisans from around the
country.
Admission is free. All we ask is you
enjoy the atmosphere and stroll through

downtown, the farmers market and
beyond to savor all that Punta Gorda has
to offer.
On Jan. 18, we present another fun
citywide garage sale in the parking lot
of Centennial Bank/Koch & Co. CPAs,
located at the corner of Virginia Avenue
and Taylor Street.
The cost is $15 per space to partici-
pate. Don't delay call the chamber
today to make a reservation. The market
will operate from 8 a.m. to noon.
We will then get in touch with our
artistic side during the Corks 'n' Canvas
event on Jan. 23. During the hilarious art
class, participants will be taught how to
create their very own masterpiece. The
wine that is included helps a lot with the
creative process.
The event will last from 6 p.m. to 8
p.m., and it will take place in the arcade
at 20/10 Optical, across the street from
the Punta Gorda Post Office on East
Marion Avenue.
The cost to participate is $35 per
person, which includes all art supplies,
beverages and nibbles one could want.
Reserve a spot by calling the chamber
office.
You'll be known as a masterpiece artist
in no time, and you will be truly amazed
with what you end up with at the end of


the art class.
Then on Jan. 24, the community is
invited to the Charlotte Harbor Event
and Conference Center, 75 Taylor St., for
a '70s Disco Night. It will last from 7 p.m.
to 10 p.m.
If you enjoy the music of the Bee Gees,
Michael Jackson, ABBA, Gloria Gaynor
and the like, then this is the night for
you. Dress to kill, with big hair, platform
shoes and bell bottoms once again,
they will be all the rage.
Tickets are $10 in advance, and they
can be purchased by calling the cham-
ber or by visiting its website. Tickets are
$15 at the door.
With all these great chamber events
planned for the month of January,
don't forget about the upcoming Wine
& Jazz Festival. It is scheduled for Feb.
22. All details and remaining tickets are
available on the chamber's website.

Take a tour of Punta Gorda
The Punta Gorda Chamber's trolley
and boat tours, which are run in con-
junction with King Fisher Fleet and the
Green Hibiscus Trolley, Co., are back and
will continue most Fridays through May.
Jan. 10 is the next tour date.


The cost of the boat and trolley
combination tour is $40 per head. The
trolley tour is $25. Call the chamber
office to book a trip. It is advised to book
large groups well in advance to avoid
disappointment.

Kiwanis offers concert
in the park Jan. 12
The Kiwanis Club of Punta Gorda is
hosting a concert featuring the Four Leaf
Strummers Banjo Band at the Laishley
Park bandstand from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
on Jan. 12. The event is free, and people
are encouraged to bring their own chair
and food to enjoy. Leave the alcohol at
home, though.

rom rags to riches may seem like
a tired, worn-out clichO, but there
is no better phrase to describe the
life of hair stylist Rosie DiMedio, who
owns Rosie and Company Haircare,
located at 24901 Sandhill Blvd., Unit 5,
in Deep Creek Commons.
DiMedio is one of nine siblings
who was placed in an orphanage in
Orwigburg, Pa., when she was 3. Their
father, Ivan, had died of black lung
disease from working in the mines and
her mother, Blanche, was placed in a
nursing home because of Parkinson's
disease when she was only in her late
20s.
"The orphanage was run by very strict
nuns," DiMedio remembers.
A wealthy couple, Dr. Joe and Mrs.
Kathleen DiMedio, had previously ad-
opted a little girl, Kathleen. She became
very lonesome in the 48-room country
home. One day, the doctor surprised his
wife and daughter by stopping by the
nearby orphanage and bringing home
two little sisters, Julie and Jeanie. The
girls told their new parents that they
had another older sister at the orphan-
age. About a year later, Rosie, who was 6
at the time, became part of the DiMedio
family.
Although her original name was


Barbara Huff



Barbara Huff is a freelance writer.
Contact her at huff2@wloop.com.


Nancy Stauffer, the DiMedios asked her
what she would like to be called. She
chose "Rosie."
The other six sibling were still at
the orphanage. Because of age and
gender, they resided in different units
of the home. The infant baby sister was
adopted, but no one knows by whom
or where she went to live. They don't
know her first name, but her biological
surname was Stauffer. Because of the
laws in Pennsylvania, the case cannot
be opened. She would be about 62 years
old today.
When Connie, the oldest sister,
turned 18 she left the orphanage but
soon took her four younger brothers out
of the institution, raising them and six
children of her own.
Bella Vista was the name of the
DiMedio home, which was near
Chelsea, Pa., a rural suburb of


Philadelphia. DiMedio remembers the
huge parties and political rallies which
were held in their monstrous residence.
Frequently there were up to 1,000
people in attendance.
Her adopted father was born in Italy
and designed the entire house. Friends
and patients in the community whom
he had served through the years helped
him build the house, which was com-
pleted in 1946.
DiMedio didn't want her school
friends to know where and how she
lived because she didn't want them to
think she was snooty. She was taken
aback when she learned that her ninth-
grade graduating class was coming to
her home for a party.
She enjoyed going to her friends' cozy
homes and early on she realized that
their homes were all the space a family
really needed to live. When her friends
said she was rich, her reply was, "My
parents have a lot of money, but we all
work very hard."
In spite of having servants and hired
help, everyone in the family had chores
to do. DiMedio's choice was scrubbing
the seven bathrooms, and she still loves
to scrub things and make them clean.
Happy and sometimes funny mem-
ories emanate from her years at Bell


Vista, where she lived from age 6 until
she left home at 21.
She took 2 years of pre-med at
Villanova University in Pennsylvania. At
that time, it was the first year women
had been admitted to the school. Her
mother was concerned about the stag-
gering opportunities that her daughter
had for male attention, and, to keep
her busy that summer, she enrolled
DiMedio in a beauty school.
There she found her life's calling,
one she has now been dedicated to for
48 years 11 in the present location.
Today, there are five stylists in her shop,
and all are independent contractors.
One unique facet of her business is
that clients donate books to the shop,
which are then sold for $1 for hard
covers and 50 cents for paperbacks. All
proceeds go to the resident's fund at the
Doug Jacobson Veterans Home in Port
Charlotte.
On her second marriage, DiMedio has
been married to Bill Ellis for 22 years.
Her son, Joe Hodges, is married to Ellis's
daughter, Debbie. That makes her the
only grandmother for her three grand-
sons, Michael, Joseph and Anthony.
She says, "They can't run to the other
grandmother for coddling because I'm
their only grandmother."

HERALD PHOTO BY GORDON BOWER
You'll find the Hotdog Lady, Dawn Haymans, left, or sidekick Elaine Hatcher selling hotdogs to the
hungry from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Gilchrist Park.



Hot Dog Lady returns



to Gilchrist Park


p unta Gorda's Hot Dog Lady is back
in Gilchrist Park after recently
regaining the vendor space there
recently. She is in her usual location in
the parking lot next to the tennis courts,
where she sells tasty dogs and chats up
customers. The Hot Dog Lady also goes
by the name Dawn Leigh Haymans,
and, during her decade in the park,
she's become as big an attraction as the
hot dogs.
She said, "Everybody knows me as
'The Hot Dog Lady.' The people in the
bank, the grocery stores, my customers,
they all call me that."
Although she has been setting up a
cart in Ponce de Leon Park during the
down time, her return to Gilchrist is a
welcome sight for longtime customers,
and they will notice some improve-
ments in their hot dog experience.
She now has an expanded motto, a
new look and a menu offering more
choices, especially in the toppings and
condiments.
She said, "My red jeep was stolen and
totaled. The insurance was a wash. I
bought the green one and decided to
change the whole look of my business
and go green."
Going green means the jeep and
menu signs have changed color, but the
produce used is also green in more than
color.
"I buy atWorden Farm (a certified
organic farm east of town), and I buy
almost everything locally. I'm even
working with someone local to add ice
cream to the menu."
Even her expanded motto has a green
theme. To "Hey, hey, it's a hot dog day,"
she's added "Mustard up and relish the
moment."
As for the menu, she's added a deli-
cious, sweet Italian sausage to accom-
pany the Polish variety and the top-of-
the-line hot dogs, plus new toppings
and condiments. They now include
ketchup, spicy and regular mustard,
relish, onions, red onion sauce, chili,
cheese, tomatoes, dill pickles, grilled
onions and peppers and coleslaw. Get
carried away with the toppings, and you
have a two-napkin lunch.
You can have your hot dog ($3) or
sausage ($5) any way you like it, with
no charge for the condiments and
toppings, on a Martin's potato roll. Add
a bag of chips and soda or water for a
$5 or $7 lunch. If those prices sound
familiar, it's because they've held steady
for 5 years
If you're not sure what you want on
your hot dog, ask the Hot Dog Lady for
a recommendation. You might try the
"Chicago Dog" dragged through the

garden, which contains the unusual
addition of celery salt and dill pickle
to the other standard "Chicago Dog"
condiments like mustard, onion and
tomatoes.
"I've also added the 'Karen Dog' after
one of my first customers," she said.
"Karen made it up. It has spicy mustard,
red onion sauce and coleslaw."
Haymans' customers run the gamut.
"Ponce is busy on weekends with
people who come and sit on the beach,"
she said. "At Gilchrist, I get a lot of
snowbirds who walk in the park or ride
their bikes and stop for lunch."
At any given time, you may see
ex-mayor and current police volunteer
Steve Fabian stopping for a hot dog,
postal employee Sharon Winesett, an
elderly lady named Betty who always
orders the same dog, business people
from downtown, city workers or fre-
quent visitors to town like Karen Brady,
who was there with granddaughter
Alivia Goble on this day.
Brady said, 'As soon as we get on the
plane to come down here, she wants to
know if we can visit the Hot Dog Lady
and get a hot dog," Brady said of her
granddaughter.
One of Haymans' most loyal cus-
tomers is husband Mike, who began
lunching on her hot dogs while they
were courting.
"He still comes everyday," she said.
"He just told me he doesn't like hot
dogs. People tell me it was stupid to
marry my best customer."
Haymans' carts are at Ponce and
Gilchrist from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven
days a week and later for Thursday eve-
ning's Guitar Army. Her team at Ponce
is made up of Kirt Kiesling, aka "The
Hot Dog Dude," and Liz McGlasson.
Five-year employee Elaine Hatcher
helps with the Gilchrist cart, and she is
as much fun to buy a hot dog from as
Haymans.
Hatcher said, "I love being outside,
meeting the people. This is a nice office
to work in."
Haymans, who wants all her loyal
customers to know she's on the job
again, said, "I'm here four days a week,
and I've had some customers from
10 years ago stop in for lunch. I hope
everybody comes back."

Step Club formed at CHS


TARPON

PUNTA GORDA


Ashley Roca, a sophomore at Charlotte High
School, performed a step routine at the CHS
Homecoming Pep Rally. This was one of the
first routines the team mastered.


BY MORGAN TRACY
CHS JUNIOR
here are many clubs at Charlotte
High School. One of the newest
clubs to be added to the line up is
the Charlotte High Step Club.
There is not just one leader of the
Step Club. There are four sopho-
mores Najia Lewis, Sergina Douyon,
Vicki Durandis and Lisa Macckavellii.
The Step Club is made up of eight
sophomores and one freshman.
As sophomore Sergina Douyon
explained, the group of dancers first
formed the club in middle school. "We
wanted to continue the club through
high school because we thought that it
was different."
Many years ago, the club was very
popular and boasted around 30
members. The new club has nine
members, but that doesn't lessen their
enthusiasm.
The members love what they do, and
the stepping is impressive to watch.
Members practice often to perfect their
routines, and sometimes the steps are
difficult to master.
"In order to tryout and join the Step

it's hard work, but pays off in the end.


Club, you have to learn a step and then
we give you a certain day to tryout,"
explained sophomore Ashley Roca.
Members of the Step Club have differ-
ent reasons for joining, but, regardless
the reason, the girls have come together
to step.
"I wanted to join in middle school
when I saw the Step Club for the first


time. I decided that I wanted to be a
member when I came into high school,"
explained freshman Angelina Peterson.
Being the only freshman could be
intimidating, but Peterson holds her
own.
The Step Club performs during half-
time, after the cheerleaders, at school
basketball games.


Teens talk about their favorite books


By ALLISON LEONARD
CHS SENIOR
or the past few years, young adult
fiction has exploded in area high
schools.
One of the most popular books among
high school students is "The Hunger
Games" trilogy by Suzanne Collins.
The trilogy is about Katniss Everdeen,
a 16-year-old girl who is forced to
compete to the death alongside 23 other
teenagers, including her friend Peeta
Mellark, in the Hunger Games. Together,
Everdeen and Mellark spark a revolution
in their country as they fight to survive
both the games and their lives outside of
the arena.
The series has become one of the
largest film franchises ever, with stu-
dents reading up as much as they could
before the second movie was released in
November.
"I love the 'Hunger Games,'" exclaimed
Grace Magaletta, a senior at Charlotte
High School. "It's probably one of my


favorite book series. Suzanne Collins just
gave all of her characters so much depth
and emotion that you can't help but
build a connection with them."
John Green is another popular author
with teens today, as his books deal with
love, loss, depression and triumph.
Green's most recent book, "The Fault
in Our Stars," is about Hazel Grace
Lancaster, a 16-year-old girl who has
been diagnosed with terminal cancer,
and Augustus Waters, a 16-year-old boy
who is in remission from a bout with
bone cancer. The two meet and develop
a love story that brings a small moment
of happiness into each other's lives.
Although the story may not resonate in
the personal experiences of most high
school students, teens cannot help but
be enticed by the love story.
"I liked it a lot," said Dorothy Guthrie,
a senior at Charlotte High. "It was well
written. It wasn't only a romance novel, it
went deeper than that because they both
were ill. John Green is just awesome in
general."


Grace Magaletta read "The Hunger Games"
trilogy during her sophomore year. Magaletta
has been a huge fan of the franchise.

FROM PAGE 1

work together. Steve (Baisch, club
pro at Twin Isles) is coming over to help
me run the tournament here, and I'm
going over to help Steve the next day,
whatever he wants us to do."
The two-day event is set for Jan.
24-25, and it is called the City of Punta
Gorda Golf Championship. The tour-
nament is designed to be a true test of
golf that will discover and recognize the
city's best amateur golfers. First-day
play will be at St. Andrews; play contin-
ues the next day at Twin Isles, where the
trophies and prizes will be handed out.
Because of the difficulty in sorting out
who lives within city limits, the cham-
pionship is open to those who have a
Punta Gorda mailing address, many of
whom consider themselves part of the
city anyway, or have an active member-
ship in a golf or civic association within
city limits.
Mark Katz, who leads the St. Andrews
tournament committee, said, "Basically,
we decided to have a tournament with
people who reside in the mailing ad-
dress of Punta Gorda, not just in the city
itself. Sure, it may upset people in Port
Charlotte and elsewhere, but we gotta
do what we gotta do. We wanted to kind
of keep it in the city. We wanted to find
the best golfer in Punta Gorda."
With a tournament named in its
honor, the city of Punta Gorda is solidly
behind the concept. Don Ross, Katz's
Twin Isles counterpart, said, "The city
approved our use of the city seal and
will be involved in the trophy presen-
tation, and the joint men's-women's
trophy will be displayed at City Hall."

A true test of golf
Katz and Ross are organizing
fundraising, prizes and pretty much
everything else but the actual play. The
two pros will run the golf tournament
itself. All agree the Punta Gorda event is
designed for serious play.
Priester said, "My first intention is to
run it like a tour event, a professional
event. This is the real deal with the
intention of naming a Punta Gorda
champion golfer, both male and female.
Neither course will beat you to death;
they are both very fair."
Ross agreed, pointing out, "I think it's
going to be fun to find out who's going
to win it. They will have bragging rights,
kind of like a club championship but
on a grander scale. This is not a typical
charity scramble ... This is a serious golf
tournament."
Both courses are up to the task of
hosting the city's first golf tourney.
St. Andrews South Golf Club was
built in 1980 at 1901 Deborah Drive in
the heart of PGI. It's a compact, par 71,
full-length course with four sets of tees,
allowing each player to test his or her
ability.
Although it's a little shorter than
most, don't let that fool you. It has
plenty of water and will test your
shot-making ability.

St. Andrews comes with a complete
practice facility and a clubhouse,
featuring a bar and dining area that was
totally remodeled by members after
Hurricane Charley.
Club pro and general manager Charlie
Priester said of the course layout, "It's
player-friendly, but challenging for a
short golf course. If you are realistic
about your own abilities and get on the
right tees, it's very challenging."
He's really upbeat about the improv-
ing condition of the greens, which were
interseeded last year with sea spray
paspalum, a new variety that is salt,
pest and drought resistant and can be
cut shorter for faster green speeds.
"The greens are doing pretty good,"
he said. "They are about 80 percent in
and will be 100 percent next June. They
don't look good because they aren't 100
percent yet, but they putt great. We have
a green roller we will use for the tourna-
ment, and nobody, depending on where
they play, will think our greens are slow.
I'm the worst putter in the world, and I
can even make a putt on them."
Twin Isles Country Club is just a few
minutes south of downtown Punta
Gorda at 301 Madrid Blvd. in Burnt
Store Isles. Built in 1985, it is a beautiful
par-72 layout that stretches to 6,722
yards from the longest tee. It features
numerous water hazards and bunkers,
broad fairways and elevated greens.
It has a large practice area that
includes a well-manicured grass driving
range, putting and chipping greens, a
bunker and a large clubhouse, which
features a dining room and a grill room
with a bar.
Baisch said the club is completely
recovered from the ravages of Hurricane
Charley and is in great condition. The
greens are large and look easy to hit;
it's best you do because almost all are
elevated, adding about a half-stroke of
difficulty per hole.
Baisch explained, "They make you hit
more club. Water runs off to the fronts,
which are soft and won't let the ball
bounce up. Miss to the sides or back,
and you're dead."


variety of wildlife, particularly in rooker-
ies on islands in the middle of the lakes.
Last year's Audubon bird count racked
up 32 species and 400 birds. Eagles and
ospreys are regularly part of the scenery.
Baisch summed the course's condition
up by saying, "Expect the course to be in
great condition. I'll probably set it up as
a seven on a scale of zero to 10 difficulty.
It will be challenging but fair."

Tournament play
The City of Punta Gorda Golf
Championship is limited to 100 golfers,
and organizers are expecting a full com-
plement. Seventy golfers from the two
clubs are anticipated, about three-quar-
ters of them men. More female entries
are needed. The registration deadline is
Jan. 14. The event will be stroke play with
a shotgun
start and
-,_ four differ-
ent tees in
use. Play will
continue if
inclement
weather
develops.
Along
with
bragging
rights, the
male and
lies right behind the well-bun- female with
enovated by members after the lowest
gross scores


will be declared champions and pick up
a trophy and gift cards. Winners of the
handicapped flights, based on lowest
net scores, will receive a medallion and
the first, second and third finishers in
each flight a gift certificate. All entrants
will receive a goodie bag and coffee and
doughnuts before and hors d'oeuvres
after play. All will also have a chance at a
hole-in-one prize, 50/50 drawing, silent
auction items and door prizes.

Local charities benefit
The Punta Gorda tourney is not
just for bragging rights; local charities
and the Juvenile Diabetes Research
Foundation will receive all proceeds,
which should be considerable. Gene
Gorman's Team of Dealerships is the
platinum sponsor, and his favorite
charity, JDRF, will receive the amount he
donated for the sponsorship. Everything
else will be distributed to local charities
through the Charlotte Community
Foundation.
As part of Gorman's platinum deal, the
tournament is sponsoring four boys and
four girls from the Charlotte High School
golf teams to play in the championship
flight. Gold and silver sponsorships are
still available, as are hole sponsorships,
with a deadline of Jan. 14.
For more information on sponsorships
call Ross at 304-280-2538 or Katz at 941-
276-5028. Entry forms are available at
all area golf courses and online at www.
twinislescc.org.


Twin Isles Country Club's large clubhouse provides great views of the course. It was remodeled
into a state-of-the-art facility after Hurricane Charley, and will host the award ceremony at the
end of the tournament.

that may arise over the next 12 months.

Tarpons hang on for 67-62 win over Port Charlotte


he Dec. 16 matchup against Port
Charlotte High School looked like
a typical game for the Charlotte
High School junior varsity boys bas-
ketball team. They came out with their
guns blazing, and their up-tempo game
caused five turnovers before the Pirates
could dent the scoreboard.
The Tarpons' spot-on shooting and
sticky defense got them off to a quick
start at Port Charlotte High School.
It was raining Tarpon three-pointers
as Lavell Cudjo hit one followed by
Grant Marsh. The score was 12-0 before
the Pirates scored their first two points
on free throws by Isaac Almanzar, a
Port Charlotte pirate.
Within 8 minutes on the court, the
Tarpons had taken a 19-8 lead, and
they were dominating the scoreboard
34-20 by the half.
But the Pirates didn't back down.
They took their halftime meeting to
regroup and remind everybody that
there was a whole half left to play.
When they returned to the court,
Almanzar took control of the game for
the Pirates. He showed that he could
bury three-pointers like the Tarpons as
his shot from downtown at the buzzer
ended the third period. This cut the
Tarpon lead in half at 45-38.
Almanzar hit two three-pointers in
the final quarter. He then had a steal,


Steve Knapp

h l oppl,,lh w/ / w,' I,,I,

in which he scored and then sunk an
"and one" shot. After another bomb
from the same Pirate player, with just
23 seconds left in the game, he got the
Pirates the closest they would get in the
game 63-62.
The key play of the game came next
on a missed Tarpon free throw. If the
Pirates came up with the rebound they
could have taken their first lead of the
game. The Tarpons' Blake Royer came
up with the board and put it back up to
maintain the Tarpon three-point lead
at 65-62.
"The strongest part of my game is re-
bounding, and we needed that basket,"
Royer said.
Down by three with 7.5 seconds left
in the game, the Pirates were going to
try to get the ball into the hot hands
of Almanzar. But Tarpon sophomore
Austin Atkinson would have no part of
that as he stole a Pirate pass.

scorer with 24 points, fouled out of
the game as he grabbed Atkinson, who
calmly went to the free throw line and
sunk both shots to give him 13 points
and cement the Tarpons' 67-62 win.
Tarpon sophomore Marsh, who
scored 12 of his team's leading 17


points in the second half, explained it
best as to how the Pirates got back into
the game after halftime.
"It's just a typical Charlotte-Port
Charlotte rivalry game," he said. "They
kept throwing punches and never quit,
That's what a rivalry game is all about."


Port Charlotte kicks out win over rival Charlotte


F or the better part of one 30-minute
half and part of another during the
Charlotte and Port Charlotte high
school junior varsity soccer matchup on
Dec. 20, neither team got to sniff a goal,
much less score one.
Finally, Sabrina Lacombe, the Pirates'
sophomore star, was able to grab her
own rebound off a Cheyenne Gaudemer
save, blasting it into the net in the 40th
minute for the only goal in the 1-0
PCHS victory.
Despite the loss, Charlotte has shown
significant improvement over where
they started the season, as players
found a way to score a few more goals.
Although they didn't score on this night,
the Tarpon players had their chances.
Just 5 minutes into the match, Avery
Carlton found Kayla Robert point blank
in front of the net, but couldn't get the
ball in the net due to heavy traffic.
The game became a tug of war be-

juggled it. Somehow, the Pirates got
the ball out of there following a wild
scramble.
Later, Alberts missed on a free kick
just outside the penalty area, and
Carlton, moments later on another free
kick, found Taylor Burke Melaragno,
who also could find the target, before
Port Charlotte ran out the clock.
Charlotte coach Colleen Beisner has
seen her team improve by leaps and
bounds.
"They put up a good fight. I'm proud
of them," Beisner said. "We have
everyone back, and we have all 15 here.
I'm happy we're putting it all together
and keeping some short of shape on the
field and learning positions."

BEAT IN PUNTA GORDA

HERALD PHOTOS BY GORDON BOWER


Sanctuary full of glory at First United Methodist


he roots of religion in Punta
Gorda run deep. In the case
of the First United Methodist
Church, its history goes back to the
time of the city's official founding in
1887.
According to archives from the
Punta Gorda Herald, the church was
first housed in a steepled, white clap-
board structure at Gill Street and West
Marion Avenue. It was built by town
founder Isaac Trabue as a meeting
place for several religious groups. Most
churches in the frontier days were
ministered to by circuit-riding preach-
ers, and worship services were rarely
in a dedicated building owned by the
congregation.
In 1889, the church purchased the
building from Trabue for the princely
sum of $230, and it was renovated,
made free of debt and became home
to 65 members. In 1910, a hurricane
ravaged the town, and the church
building was blown off its foundation.
After a few years of travail, members
in 1912 decided to put up a new
structure at the site.
Several years passed before they
eventually succeeded in completing
the magnificent brick edifice, filled
with painted stained-glass windows,
that still stands today. In an act of
faith, the 150 members decided to
build a sanctuary that could seat 450.
It was built from a design by Maxwell
Price, a Punta Gorda resident and
nationally famous architect.
That act of faith has since been
rewarded, as the congregation grew to
fill up the sanctuary several times over.
Church rolls now contain around 800
names, with some 750 regularly wor-
shiping at the three Sunday morning
services.
The church sanctuary has served
them well and proved worthy of
their faith over the years. A modest
renovation was undertaken around
its centennial celebration, and the
building has gracefully aged into an
iconic city landmark and historical
treasure. Nevertheless, age finally took
its toll in 2012, when serious structural
problems were discovered.
The Rev. Mike Loomis, senior pastor,
said, "We had electrical issues, and
an electrician in the crawl space said,
'You need to check this out.' The piers
were made with sand from the harbor.
The floor joists were made of old-
growth heart pine and were in good
shape, but the concrete piers holding
them up were deteriorating (from the
salt).
He didn't have to crawl under the
building for proof. Standing on the
chancel, he could see pews tilting in
different directions. The west wall of
the sanctuary was also visibly out of
plumb. There was never any wavering
on the part of the members as to
whether it would be saved.
"The vast majority of folks wanted
to be back in their church and do what
needed to be done," he said. "The
congregation was united. If it was at
all feasible ... We just put out word to
the congregation; half of the money
came from donations up front, and
the rest is pledged. This reflects the

congregation's desire to get back in
their church."
The structural problems were first
noticed in April 2012, and a year was
needed to sort out how much work
needed to be done they needed
to form a building committee and
hire a contractor, Boyette and Miller
Construction and Development. Work
began in April, and the congregation
was back in the sanctuary Nov. 17.
The century-old building, except for
the concrete piers, turned out to be
in exceptionally good shape. Loomis
said, "It's a well-built structure. It was
fine after Hurricane Charley except for
the painted-glass window that blew
out and landed intact on the chancel."
That round window was left with a
small hole at its 4:30 position, pre-
cisely the time Charley hit town; it has
been covered with a clear material,
instead of completely repaired, as a
reminder of the storm and symbol of
the building's strength. Right below
the Charley window hangs a huge,
back-lit cross made from one of
the floor joists removed during the
renovation. The pair quickly draw the
eye and put a worshiper in the proper
frame of mind.
Loomis said about 60 percent of
the money raised went to address
the structural issues. The rest went to
updates, beautification and changes
aimed at restoring the original look of
the sanctuary. A center aisle was put
back in, new heart pine floor installed
to replace the one cut up for the pier
repairs, pews and windows washed
and cleaned, and the chancel en-
larged. A byproduct of the renovation

was a stunning new communion table,
which is made from 100-year-old
renovation scraps by master cabinet-
maker and member Jerry DePetro.
The end result is a thing of beauty.
Those walking up to and entering the
sanctuary can literally feel the history
emanating from the old wood, glass
and bricks. The bricks on the south
and west are of particular note. They
are made of cleaned bricks taken from
the old ice house not the one that is
still standing, but its predecessor.
Loomis said, "A lot of these old
structures are not as functional as
a new church building, but they are
more beautiful, and beauty is a good
thing ... It's hard to compete with old
wood and painted-glass windows. You
can smell the history when you walk
in.
Worship services are at 8 a.m., 9:15
a.m. and 11 a.m. Sunday. The middle
service is more contemporary and
casual, and includes a Christian music
band that tends to attract younger
families. Whichever your preference,


The historic First United Methodist Church
building has been a fixture at Gill Street
and West Marion Avenue for a century,
and a recent renovation ensures the
historic sanctuary will remain one
of Punta Gorda's iconic structures.

contemporary or traditional, Loomis
urges people to stop and give his
church a try.
He said, "Welcome to all. A lot of
folks think you have to be a member
to worship. We want everyone to
come, like us, stay and find a new
relationship with the Lord."

Although guests can get close to
nature and marvel at the alligators,
wild boars, bobcats, etc., many do
not realize that there are hundreds
of species of birds located within its
boundaries that call this part of Florida
their home as well.
On Dec. 30, a dozen members of the
Peace River Audubon Society gathered
for a Christmas Bird Count at the
ranch. Organized by Peter Quasius
of the Southwest Florida Audubon
Society in 2012, the "birders" take note
of the various types of birds and get an
approximate number residing at the
ranch.
Just how accurate is a bird count?
Well, according to an article by
Malcolm Simons on the society's
website, it is remarkably accurate.
"(The) improved binoculars, scopes,
tapes and field guides have greatly im-
proved the accuracy of identification,"
he wrote. "But careful monitoring by
leaders and compilers is still necessary
in order to avoid wishful thinking in
the reports. The scientists have grad-
ually come to realize that its greatest
strength lies in the fact that it is the
longest running continuous census
of any form of life on the face of the
Earth."
"We gather data to determine how
many species are here," Jim Knoy, pres-
ident of the society, said. "After time, we
can see the trends that develop and can
track migration and population of the
various types of birds here."
As the four-vehicle caravan of
birdwatchers snaked its way along the
bumpy, dirt road and past the remains
of the old cattle pens that have been
abandoned for years, Stu Lewis kept
a sharp eye out for any birds. He is

not only vice president of the society,
but the organizer and compiler of the
count, now in its second year.
"We will cross the Telegraph Swamp
in three different places," he said. "We
will stop and quietly watch, so the
noise won't spook them."
Lewis said that there are an abun-
dance of tree swallows on the ranch.
Hundreds were flying overhead on
each side of the road as he entered the
property, he explained. Many egrets,
vultures, herons and limpkins dotted
the landscape as the motorcade slowly
pushed along the route.
Jim Easton, a forestry employee with
Babcock Management, suddenly spot-
ted an unusual sight casually walking
along the path about 50 yards in front
of his truck.
"I think that is a bald eagle," he said.
Lewis confirmed it, explaining that it
was an immature eagle, about 4 years
old, because its head had not turned
completely white.
"It normally takes 5 years for a bald
eagle to mature," Lewis said.
The group quickly noted the pres-
ence of robins, bluebirds, a blue green
heron, warblers, mockingbirds, wood-
peckers and the rare and endangered
brown-headed nut hatch.
"They are only about 3 1/2 inches
long and they squeak," Lewis said. "It's
a treat to see them here."
The group also sighted the shrike,
also known as the "butcher bird" be-
cause it leaves the carcasses of its prey
and returns later to feast on it.
"They will place bats and other small
birds on the barbed wire fences here,"
Easton said. "That's why they are called

Knoy said that he encourages anyone
who is interested in joining the Peace
River Audubon Society to contact them.
"Even if people are not experienced,
they will get a crash course," he said.


"It's a great way to learn more about
the many species of birds and get to see
the incredible sights of Babcock ranch
as well."

DEAR DR. ROACH:
My mom is nearing 90
and recently developed
an arthritic hip, which
is curtailing her activi-
ties. She has Type 2 (no
insulin) diabetes. The
orthopedic doctor we
saw gave her the choices
of hip replacement
surgery (no!), therapy or
a cortisone injection. We
almost proceeded with
the cortisone injection,
until I found out that
it can elevate one's
sugar levels. I'm getting
conflicting reports of
how high the levels can
go and for how long. She
is not overweight (132
pounds and 5 feet, 1 inch
tall) and is allergic to
sulfur and penicillin. She
also takes medicine for
high blood pressure. She
is doing her own home
therapy (keeping active
including stair climbing).
Any suggestions on
the cortisone or other
treatments to help her?
-D.C.
ANSWER: Injection of
steroids into an arthritic
joint is both safe and
effective for most people
with arthritis. Her sur-
geon likely will choose
a steroid that tends to
stay in the joint longer,
leading to more improve-
ment and less systemic
effects. The effect on
blood sugar in people
with diabetes usually is
minimal and lasts two to
three days. Her allergies
and other medications
should not interfere with
the injection.
Although exercise is
a great way of treating
the arthritis, she should
take it easy the day after
the injection to allow the
medicine to stay in the
joint as long as possible.
Hip injections usually
are done with an X-ray to
make sure the injection
goes in the right spot.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
Both of my parents
died with Alzheimer's
disease, and I have great
fear of getting it myself.
(I'm 70, with worsening
memory.) There has been
recent news suggesting
that copper intake may
worsen or even cause the
disease. I've been looking
for foods low in copper,
but most of the ones I
eat (beans, greens, nuts,
whole wheat) are high in
copper. How stringent
a diet should I follow?
-P.M.
ANSWER: Copper
has been linked to
an Alzheimer's-type
condition in laboratory
mice. I recall a similar
interest about aluminum


Dr. Roach

and Alzheimer's disease
back in the 1990s, and
it turned out not to be a
significant issue. Because
copper is a necessary
nutrient and present in
many healthy foods, I
would not try to reduce
copper intake based on
the current information.
It is possible (but I think
unlikely) that reducing
copper intake eventu-
ally will be shown to
reduce Alzheimer's, but
I wouldn't change your
diet now.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I
am a 73-year-old woman,
and I have blockages in
the arteries of my legs
and my carotid artery.
I am unable to tolerate
any kind of cholesterol
medicine, and my doctor
told me to try red yeast
rice. I would appreciate
any comments, since I do
not know anything about
it or any side effects.
-C.M.L.
ANSWER: Red yeast
rice, a fermented rice
product used in Chinese
medicine for blood
circulation, contains
substances that act in
a similar way to station
drugs. They generally are
well-tolerated, and in
one study lowered cho-
lesterol levels by about
20 percent. It isn't clear
whether this reduced risk
of heart attack or stroke.
Also, these products are
not regulated, and have
variability in their effects.
Finally, no long-term
studies have been done
to prove safety.
That being said,
because of your poor
reaction to other kinds
of treatments, it may be
worth trying if you un-
derstand these concerns.
Dr Roach regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but
will incorporate them
in the column whenever
possil,' Readers may
email questions to

order form of available

Yesterday's Jumbles: HABIT GUEST POTENT MEDLEY
Answer: They watched the sun go down from the
beach because it was a perfect SETTING

Thegoodand bad pad


Dear Heloise: Why do
the people who put chick-
en pieces in foam trays put
in the little absorbent pads?
They do indeed absorb
stray fluids, but they start
stinking within 24 hours
at room temperature. This
isn't good if it's two or three
days until garbage pickup.
- C.K., via email
I'm with you they are
yucky! But they do serve
a purpose. The pad keeps
the chicken (and meat)
"looking good" by absorb-
ing any liquid that may
leak while it sits in the cold
storage bin in the store.
You are right that it can be-
come smelly if it sits in the
garbage can for too long.
Try this classic Heloise
hint: Wrap the liner in a
plastic bag and put it in the
freezer until garbage day!
Many readers do this with
any food that cannot go
down the garbage disposal
and that starts smelling
if it sits in the garbage
can until pickup day. Just
remember to get it out of
the freezer when garbage
day arrives! Heloise
Individual servings
Dear Heloise: I make
many soups and stocks
during the winter. A good
hint for making individu-
al-serving-size portions is
to pour the soup or stock
into the cups of a muffin
tin before freezing. After
the soup is frozen, it
easily pops out. Layla
M. in Wisconsin
This is a great way to
freeze soups, especially if
you have limited freezer

space, while being able to
have just one cup! After
freezing, repackage the
soups (in plastic freezer
bags or containers) for a
better fit in the freezer.
Soup is my go-to meal for
lunch or dinner, especially
in the winter. I have a
super (souper!) pamphlet,

soup hints, plus recipes

Check out these warning

signs of potential abusers


DEAR ABBY: When my
daughter was 20, she met a
guy who one minute show-
ered her with roses and the
next would beat her up. She
stayed with him thinking
she could change him,
and became pregnant. On
her 21st birthday, she tried
to get away from him. He
chased her up the road and
went to punch her in the
stomach. When she turned
to avoid the blow, it landed,
hitting the baby in the head
and killed the child.
Abby, once a beater,
always a beater. I hope all
women in abusive rela-
tionships will see this letter.
My daughter is fine now,
married and expecting. -
PENNSYLVANIA MOM
DEAR PENNSYLVANIA
MOM: I'm glad you wrote,
because your letter reminds
me that it has been some
time since I printed the
warning signs of an abuser.
Here they are:
(1) PUSHES FOR QUICK
INVOLVEMENT: Comes
on strong, claiming, "I've
never felt loved like this by
anyone." An abuser pres-
sures the new partner for
an exclusive commitment
almost immediately.
(2) JEALOUS: Excessively
possessive; calls constantly
or visits unexpectedly;
prevents you from going to
work because "you might
meet someone;" checks the
mileage on your car.
(3) CONTROLLING: If
you are late, interrogates
you intensively about
whom you talked to and
where you were; keeps all
the money; insists you ask
permission to go anywhere
or do anything.
(4) UNREALISTIC
EXPECTATIONS: Expects
you to be the perfect mate
and meet his or her every
need.
(5) ISOLATION: Tries to
isolate you from family and
friends; accuses people
who are your supporters
of "causing trouble." The
abuser may deprive you
of a phone or car, or try to
prevent you from holding
a job.
(6) BLAMES OTHERS
FOR PROBLEMS OR
MISTAKES: It's always
someone else's fault if
something goes wrong.
(7) MAKES OTHERS
RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS OR


Dear Abby

HER FEELINGS: The abuser
says, "You make me angry"
instead of "I am angry," or
says, "You're hurting me by
not doing what I tell you."
(8) HYPERSENSITIVITY:
Is easily insulted, claiming
hurt feelings when he or
she is really mad. Rants
about the injustice of things
that are just a part of life.
(9) CRUELTY TO
ANIMALS OR CHILDREN.
Kills or punishes animals
brutally. Also may expect
children to do things that
are far beyond their ability
(whips a 3-year-old for
wetting a diaper) or may
tease them until they cry.
Sixty-five percent of abusers
who beat their partners will
also abuse children.
(10) "PLAYFUL" USE
OF FORCE DURING SEX
Enjoys throwing you down
or holding you down
against your will during
sex; finds the idea of rape
exciting.
(11) VERBAL ABUSE:
Constantly criticizes or
says blatantly cruel things;
degrades, curses, calls you
ugly names. This may also
involve sleep deprivation,
waking you with relentless
verbal abuse.
(12) RIGID GENDER
ROLES: Expects you to
serve, obey, remain at
home.
(13) SUDDENMOOD
SWINGS: Switches from
sweet to violent in minutes.
(14) PASTBATTERING:
Admits to hitting a mate in
the past, but says the person
"made" him (or her) do it.
(15) THREATS OF
VIOLENCE: Says things like,
"I'll break your neck" or "I'll
kill you," and then dismiss-
es them with, "Everybody
talks that way," or "I didn't
really mean it."
Readers, if you feel you
are at risk, contact the
National DomesticViolence
Hotline at 800-799-7233 or
www.thehotline.org.


"But he was wounded for our transgressions, he
was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of
our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are
healed."- Isaiah 53:5.
Nothing was left out or overlooked. He met all of our
needs at Calvary. All we need to do is believe and receive.

East winning and returning the suit.
South won and drew the last trump.
South wasn't sure which defender
should be played for the heart queen.
East, who showed 15-17 points in the
auction, was the favorite to hold that
card, but it wasn't a sure thing.
Declarer postponed his decision in
that suit and led a club to dummy's
jack. East won with the king and
played another diamond, South
ruffing with his last trump.
South was out of trumps, but the
opponents were out of diamonds, so
it was safe to play a club to the 10 in
dummy. When East won the ace and
returned the suit, South's count was
complete. East showed up with six
points in diamonds, four in spades
and seven in clubs, for a total of 17.
West must hold the queen of hearts!
South finessed West for that card and
brought home his contract. Had West
won the ace of clubs, South would
have played East for the heart queen,
certain of success.
