Why promote


the poor?

( AT hy does your paper promote
\\ the poor?
V "There are 190,000 people
in Charlotte County and 11 percent
are in the poverty
level. They are not
poor Most of them
are on government
S welfare. In i,'" 1iti:
About 1 percent are
j i homeless.
"On Thanksgiving,
I went to a local
Daid serving dinner for
David the poor in Punta
DUNN-RANKIN Gorda. Poor? They
all drove there in
PRESIDENT AND PUBLISHER nc cr al dre
nice cars all dressed
up infancy clothes. I did not see one
walk there. Then, to blow my mind, they
were talking on their cellphones. Several
kids had iPods. They stuffed their bellies,
then left.
"Thousands of dollars are collected
for the poor every week. In your paper
alone I quit counting when it reached
$100,000. Someone must be getting all
that money? Do you know who?
"Christmas, Ahhh. Went to a little store
on Cooper Street in Punta Gorda where a
few people were standing around selling
some toys and a bike. They said they got
them for their kids for Christmas but
need money so they have to sell them.
Hmmm, some of the free ones I bet.
"Does your paper ever check to see if
these poor scams you advertise for free in
your paper are real? Remember, the poor
do not buy your paper The only reason
your high-class readers do the poor stuff
is to get their name in the paper
"Henry Ford said it best, 'Capital
punishment is as fundamentally wrong
as a cure for crime as charity is wrong as
a cure for poverty.'" FB
Thanks, FB. I'd have to agree with
Henry Ford. Charity is not a cure for
poverty. I am not sure a cure for poverty
ever will be created.
Henry Ford also said this: "If there is
any one secret of success, it lies in the
ability to get the other person's point of
view and see things from that person's
angle, as well as from your own."
FB, determining who is poor and
abusing the system can be a matter
of perception. Perception can lead to
frustration. If allowed to fester, only the
frustrated person is harmed, not the
person who caused the frustration. We
often don't know enough to fully see
another point of view. Give yourself a gift
and let it go.
FB, you write, "The only reason your
high-class readers do the poor stuff is
to get their name in the paper." Our
newspaper does invest heavily to cele-
brate those who make our community a
better place.
Every year, Americans give money
to charity. Almost none of us get our
picture in the paper because we give.
Americans are incredibly charitable for
a different reason than ego. Why do so
many of us give, despite knowing that
charity does not cure poverty?
Folks, like those at local churches,
sponsor meals as much for fellowship and
the lonely as they do to feed the "poor."
Many of us share our wealth because
giving temporarily releases us from the
power money holds over us. Many of us
reach out to others because we believe
we are part of a larger community. We
hope we can give the less fortunate a
hand up. Many of us give because when
we share our time, talent and treasure,
we get more out of the exchange than
the recipient.
Not all love is requited, nor do all gifts
make a permanent difference in the life
of the recipient. Only the life of the giver
is guaranteed to be affected by an act of
charity.

Punta Gorda OKs registry


City moves forward with domestic partnerships


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER
PUNTA GORDA In a move
that resulted in cheering, furious
applause and a few shed tears from
audience members, the Punta Gorda
City Council on Wednesday cleared
the way for the creation a domestic
partnership registry in the city that
would afford unmarried gay and
heterosexual couples some of the
same rights afforded to their married
counterparts.
In a unanimous decision, the City
Council voted to move forward with


the drafting of an ordinance that
establishes a registry that would
allow unmarried couples to make
health care decisions for each other as
surrogates, have visitations at health
care facilities within the city, make
funeral and burial decisions for their
partners, be notified in the event of
an emergency, allow partners to be
appointed as guardians by the courts,
and allow for participation in the
education of a dependent.
Nearly two dozen municipalities
across the state have adopted similar
ordinances, including the cities of
Venice, North Port and Sarasota.


Sarasota County has adopted one as
well. It's the first time Punta Gorda
considered such a law.
Before a standing-room-only crowd
- many of whom donned red shirts
in a show of solidarity Punta Gorda
resident and retired attorney Erica
Raffel laid out the case for a registry
to the five-member council. Raffel
has been in a same-sex domestic
partnership for more than a decade in
Florida, where same-sex marriage is
outlawed.
"The registry itself establishes

Lamarque controversy grows


Above: North Port resident Charles Hummer presents information at Tuesday night's Sarasota County School Board believed was vital
meeting that he says shows that Lamarque Elementary School in North Port is a dangerous and ailing environment, information.

Parents express outrage about 'sick school' to board


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER
SARASOTA COUNTY Duane
Horton warned the Sarasota County
Sheriff's deputy not to touch him. He
wanted to hear what Charles Hummer
had to say, so he pointed his finger at
Sarasota County School Board mem-
bers, demanding that Hummer be given
more than three minutes to speak.


Board Chairwoman Jane Goodwin
insisted that Horton pipe down and
allow the meeting to continue. But,
as a parent of a child who attends
Lamarque Elementary School in
North Port, Horton felt Hummer
was offering better answers than the
board or the administration about
what possible ills might be plaguing
the school.
The deputy did not remove Horton,


but Hummer was not allowed any
additional time for public comment.
Horton later would try to donate his
three minutes of public comment to
Hummer, but Goodwin shot that down
too.
"We know we have a problem at
Lamarque. My child has bloodshot
eyes and a runny nose. Everyone there

Turkey shooter fights on


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
The Punta Gorda man who was
charged in October with killing a wild
turkey out of season after it had
been destroying his land for weeks
- hasn't been able to get the misde-
meanor count dropped, but he vows
to continue fighting the case. Now, he
could be heading for trial.
At a Tuesday hearing, Jerry Travis
learned Charlotte County Judge Peter
Bell had granted the state's motion to
strike his motion to dismiss the case.
Still determined that he did nothing
wrong, Travis, 74, said he'll take his
case all the way to the Supreme Court
if he has to.

Right: Jerry Travis had to repaint his steps
because nuisance turkeys left their droppings
on them. Travis is due in court in March for a
pretrial conference to discuss the possibility
of a jury trial he has been charged with
killing a wild turkey out of season, after he
shot one of the birds on his Punta Gorda
property in October.

"It's a matter of principle," he said. "I
have the right to protect my property
under the Constitution."
The turkey trouble started in the fall.
Travis and his wife Beverly have a home
in Chapmansboro, Tenn., where they

Rotonda responding to Broadmoor's future


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

ROTONDAWEST-
RotondaWest property
owners are responding
to what they want to see
developed in Broadmoor
Park.
Property owners
have until Jan. 31 to
respond to a Rotonda
West Association survey
on what to do with the
160-acre property-
which had been the
Pinemoor East golf
course.


Out of the 6,200
property owners, more
than 530 have responded
so far to the survey, RWA
manager Jay Lyons told
the Broadmoor Park
Advisory Group Tuesday.
Considering that only
2,000 property owners
voted in the RWAs recent
election, Lyons said the
response to the survey is
good.
Now the real work
begins.
The advisory group
agreed that next month,
members will begin


evaluating the individual
survey responses, deter-
mining what the majority
of property owners want
to see developed in the
park.
"We want to see it all -
what they want or don't
want," advisory group
chairman Dean Ziegler
said. He suggested the
survey results could be
shaped into a master plan
for the park. "It's a wish
list for down the road.
"All the information is
for design purposes," he
said.


While property owners
were asked to provide
their names on their
responses, the advisory
group will evaluate the
responses by the section
of Rotonda West in which
they live or own property.
Lyons said RWA staff
will redact the names,
and will verify that the
respondents are property
owners.
"You will also get an
idea of how many people
respond from Broadmoor,
the segment most affected
by the park," Lyons said.


Once the responses
are evaluated, Linda
Harrison, a Long Marsh
resident, told the advi-
sory group, "Numbers
are going to be your best
friend. Then you can
quiet those who think it's
just subjective data."
The RotondaWest
Association acquired
the 160-acre property
- renamed Broadmoor
Park thanks to John
Ferrell, a RotondaWest
resident and RWA canal
maintenance contractor
who offered $50,000 for


its purchase last year.
Bill Stine of Rotonda
Golf Partners LLC agreed
to sell the property to
the RWA. The sale did
stipulate that it can never
be redeveloped into a
golf course. Rotonda
Golf Partners owns and
operates other Rotonda
West golf courses.
The advisory group's
next meeting is sched-
uled for 6:30 p.m. Feb. 4.
For more informa-
tion, call the RWA at
941-697-6788.

Local veteran struggling to regain pension


By PAUL FALLON
SUN CORRESPONDENT

PORT CHARLOTTE
-A 61-year-old Port
Charlotte veteran and
his family are in danger
of losing their home
because of issues with his
service pension.
Jon Hutchins started
getting a $1,500 a month
pension for his service in
the U.S. Navyin 2011. The
Veterans Administration
quit sending the check
in December, stating he
owed around $18,000 for
a home loan defaulted on
in 1993.
However, Hutchins
said he never obtained
a home loan from the


Veterans Administration
for the house reportedly
purchased in Cleveland,
Ohio, in the late 1970s,
and claims a signature on
the loan application was
forged.
"I'm trying to get
someone to look into
this," Hutchins said.
"But it seems like no
one wants to take on the
government."
The Charlotte County
Veterans Service Office
filed for a waiver on
Hutchins' behalf Dec. 26,
said David Donohew,
county veterans service
officer. It will take about
60 business days before
the agency will rule on the
request, Donohew said.


"I'd say about 70 per-
cent of the waiver
requests get approved,"
he added.
Hutchins' problems
don't end there, according
to Donohew. The Port
Charlotte resident, who
recently married 65-year-
old Rosemary Brooks,
has to report both their
incomes to the Veterans
Administration, Donohew
said.
Donohew said that
Hutchins did not report
this income to the
Veterans Administration,
and that he was overpaid
for his pension. Hutchins
said that he did report
his income to the agency,
and that it must have lost


the paperwork.
He faxed a letter
claiming his and his
wife's income in 2011,
Hutchins said. He and his
wife must support three
teenagers, and Rosemary
also has health issues that
must be addressed, he
said.
Cutting off his pen-
sion check would leave
the family with about
$1,800 a month to live
on. This isn't enough to
cover the bills, Hutchins
said, and the family is in
danger of being "put out
on the streets."
"I don't know why
they're doing this,"
Hutchins said. "They're
(Veterans Administration)


saying I owe them money
after 26 years, and they're
just now coming after it."
Donohew claims the
Veterans Administration
did a check on Hutchins'
finances when he
requested more money
through his pension,
and that is when the
agency discovered the
loan default and the
overpayment.
"The VA wants that
money back," Donohew
said.
The county office is
also seeking a waiver for
this overpayment, he
said.
When asked about
Hutchins' claim that he
did not purchase a home


in Ohio, Donohew said,
"He can claim that, but
the VA has his signature
and his Social Security
number on the home
loan application."
The county office is
attempting to obtain
money to help Hutchins
pay some of his bills.
Even if the debt is
forgiven, Donohew
is "99 percent" sure
Hutchins will lose some,
if not all, of his monthly
pension, he said.
That is because
Hutchins and his family
make too much money
with their combined in-
comes for him to receive
the pension, Donohew
said.

Retiring



educator will



miss students,



co-workers


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

NORTH PORT Bill
Massolio, an assistant

M High School
who is
retiring this
week, said
the things
he will miss
most about
leaving
MASSOLIO education
are the
students and those he's
worked with.
Massolio, 64, worked
for Charlotte County
Schools before coming
to the Sarasota County
School District. He's been
an educator for 34 years,
the last 11 spent in
Sarasota County schools.
"You always miss the
people you miss the
kids, first of all. I've
always enjoyed working
with them and assist-
ing them when I can,
because they're always
pleasantly surprising
me about what they can
achieve and attain," he
said Tuesday, adding that
his colleagues both
teachers and staff are
outstanding. "A lot of
these people are just
wonderful teachers, but
also great people."
Massolio's retirement,
effective Friday, was
approved by the Sarasota
County School Board at
its Dec. 10 meeting. He
is one of four assistant
principals at NPHS.
Massolio began his
teaching career in 1981
at Charlotte High School
in Punta Gorda, and
was named an assistant
principal there in 1990. In
1998, he became coordi-
nator of curriculum and
instruction for Charlotte
County Schools, and was
appointed director of
secondary education for
that district in 2001. He
taught at-risk students at
Murdock Middle School
in Port Charlotte in
2002-03.
He began working for
Sarasota County Schools
in 2003, when he was
named assistant principal
at Riverview High School
in Sarasota. In 2007, he
became assistant prin-
cipal at NPHS. In 2010,
he was named Assistant
Principal of the Year
for the Sarasota School
District.
Massolio also served as
administrator in charge
of NPHS beginning


May 17, 2011, when
Superintendent Lori
White placed former
principal George Kenney
on administrative leave
as the district conduct-
ed an investigation of
Kenney's use of hypnosis
with students. Massolio
subsequently was named
interim principal of
NPHS from July 1, 2011,
until June 2012, when
principal David Jones
took over at the school.
Jones called Massolio's
retirement "a huge loss"
to the school.
"The thing about the
guy and part of his
philosophy is that ev-
ery day that he can make
a person's life just a little
bit better, it's a successful
day.... I've been through
many, many people
retiring great people -
but ... this is going to be
the hardest. I hate saying
goodbye to him."
Massolio said he has
learned a lot about his
students' families, histo-
ry, and what their plans
are. He also was in charge
of the Most Improved
Student program at
NPHS, which recognizes
graduating seniors who
turned their academic ca-
reers around and awards
them scholarships and
prizes such as computers.
The program will con-
tinue with teacher Matt
Mitchell, who has helped
out the last several years,
taking the reins.
"Matt will pick up
this year," Massolio said,
adding Northern Trust
and other community
sponsors will continue to
support the program.
Massolio said he has
nothing on his schedule
right now, but is fine with
that. While he has very
much enjoyed his career,
he is looking forward to
the change.
"It seems like it's gone
by in a flash," he said.
"I've been very, very
lucky to be around great
schools and two great sys-
tems, Charlotte County
and here, and wonderful
staff members and educa-
tors, but it's time for me
to do something else."
Jones said Brad
Porinchak, a district-level
science curriculum
coordinator, will serve as
an administrative intern
for the remainder of the
school year. The school
will advertise for a full-
time assistant principal
over the summer.

Light still on for missing dog

941-426-2909"
For the past seven
months, this classified ad
has appeared regularly
in the Sun. Former North
Port city commissioner
Althea "Buddy" Hughes
will not allow herself to
give up on her beloved
Trixie. The self-proclaimed
animal lover has never
forgotten any of her pets.
Having resided for
30 years in the same

said.
Tuesday night's
School Board meeting
was the latest chapter
in the ongoing saga
of Lamarque, which
teachers, students and
parents claim is an ail-
ing environment, while
the district maintains
the school is perfectly
healthy.
The school has had a
mysterious, "sewer-like"
or sulfur odor since
opening in 2006, and
its profile grew con-
siderably in 2013 as
more teachers came
forward with what the
school district de-
scribed as "allergy-like
symptoms," and more
parents complained
their children were sick,
suffering from ailments
including headaches,
coughing and bloody
noses.
About 40 parents were
at Tuesday's meeting.
They shed tears, they
shouted, they pound-
ed the lectern, they
demanded the school
be shut down. It was
a far cry from the last
time the School Board
met in late December,
when only a handful
of parents voiced their
concerns during public
comment.

The Hummer
factor
The one constant,
however, has been
Hummer, whose home-

When they came down to
their Punta Gorda home
off Oil Well Road on Oct.
19, they were greeted by
scores of ducks, turkeys
and geese that had been
grazing on their land.
The birds ate the Travises'
grass, and the seeds they
put down to try and
grow it back. Also, his
patio and steps had to be
repainted due to stains
from turkey droppings.


creatures that also shared
her North Port home. And
she remembers each and
every one of them in
life and death burying
them in her backyard
when they pass on. Laid
to rest is a Harlequin
Great Dane, a monkey, a
couple of poodles, three
Chihuahuas, a neighbor's
dachshund and a menag-
erie of birds.
"I've got my own little
graveyard here," she said.
And there are the
animals she still has in
her home a Great Dane
named Carly, her parrot
Rocky, an orange tabby
called Toby and another
cat known as Charmin, be-
cause she's so soft. But her
thoughts are always with
Trixie, who on May 15, two


school's potential dan-

last year sparked what
many believe is a
wildly out-of-control
controversy.
Hummer has been
the most vocal about
what's happening at the
school, an effort he says
is aimed at protecting
the children espe-
cially following his own
trials and tribulations
with what he says
is tainted American
drywall that ruined
his North Port home,
forcing him to live in a
tiny space on his back
porch.
School district Chief
Operating Officer Scott
Lempe tried to assure
parents Tuesday that
everything that could
be done, has been done.
Lamarque Elementary is
a safe environment, he
said, and if there was a
reason to shut it down,

Travis bought a BB
gun from Walmart and
shot one of the turkeys
on Oct. 21, according
to an Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission report. Fall
turkey season had just
ended the previous day,
so if Travis had shot the
turkey about 12 hours
earlier, he wouldn't
have been charged. A
neighbor reported the
incident.
"I worked hard to pay
for this place, and now
the state is trying to
punish me for trying to
protect it," Travis said.

Jerry Travis took this photo in October at his home in Punta

days before Hughes' 86th
birthday, disappeared out
the front door.
Hughes bought Trixie
online for $800 less
than a year before, and
her puppy immediately
became part of the family.
A black-striped marking
across her eyes gave
Trixie a distinct look and
personality.
"I wanted to name her
Bandit," she said, "but
that's not a nice name for
a girl."
But before Trixie went
missing, she stole Hughes'
heart.
"I love that dog so
much," Hughes said. "I've
been crying and crying.
It's terrible."
She passed out fliers,
called the police and


closed immediately and
the students moved.
Although he didn't
specifically reference
Hummer, Lempe
referred to "misinfor-
mation" being spread
about the school,
specifically the results
of off-gassing drywall
tests that, while they did
show the presence of
harmful chemicals such
as carbon disulfide and
carbonyl sulfide, did not
indicate levels that were
dangerous.
Hummer, whose
three minutes of public
comment included post-
er-board charts showing
the levels of those
chemicals present in the
school as actually being
dangerous, was said to
be causing a "hysteria"
by Goodwin, especially
after helping to orga-
nize an information
campaign, during which
he handed out fliers to
parents picking up and

Beverly requires lung
cancer treatment in
Nashville, Tenn., every
three weeks. It's too
expensive to fly that
often, so Travis drives
her an 1,800-mile
round trip. But because
of his Charlotte County
court dates, it's been
difficult for him to stay
with her and help her
as much as he'd like.
Beverly remained in
Nashville earlier this
week, while Travis had
to come back to Punta
Gorda for court.
"I want to be with her,
but I had to come back
because of this," Travis
said.
Travis who was
denied indigence and
refuses to hire an attor-
ney won't give in. He
has a pretrial confer-
ence set for March 17,
where a jury trial will be
discussed.
"If they don't drop the
charge by then, I guess
we're going to trial,"
he said. "All they're
trying to make me do is
hire an attorney, and I
won't."
State Attorney's
Office spokeswoman
Samantha Syoen said
she couldn't discuss
the open case, but said
scheduling a pretrial


alerted all pet stores, ani-
mal shelters and hospitals
in the area. Still, Trixie
hasn't come home.
And that was only one
of two heartfelt losses
suffered by Hughes last
year. In August, Olympia
"Ollie" Guenin, her life
partner for 38 years, died
at age 94.
If that wasn't enough to
deal with, Hughes herself
was recovering from a
battle with non-Hodgkins
lymphoma.
"And my cat died just
last week from cancer.
She had lymphoma, too.
Can you believe that?" she
said.
But despite the many

dropping off their kids
at Lamarque this week.
Lempe told parents
the district was open to
any suggestions as to
what might be wrong at
the school, but they re-
peatedly shut Hummer
down when he tried to
voice his concerns.
Hummer said he's
an expert on tainted
American and Chinese
drywall, and he's
certain the school was
built using the defec-
tive product, which can
cause similar ailments.
"If he wants to hear
ideas, all I want to do is
help," Hummer said.

What's next?
Goodwin hopes
results of interviews
being conducted by
Dr. James McCluskey,
a University of South
Florida professor and
toxicologist, will be
available by the next
School Board meeting
Jan. 21, to provide the
board with some sort of
direction.
Goodwin said
Wednesday that she
was at a partial loss
on the issue, as she
implicitly trusts the
work and word of
district staff, but at the
same time understands
the concerns expressed
by parents.
Goodwin suggested
that each parent who
is worried remove their
child from Lamarque,
but district staff has
said previously that
transferring a child
is based on class-size
availability at other
schools, and is not ap-
proved automatically.

conference is standard
it doesn't necessarily
mean there will be a
trial.
In Travis' original mo-
tion to dismiss which
was rejected because it
lacked sworn facts, doc-
uments show Travis
claimed the turkey he
shot and killed was
not "wild." He claims
the bird belonged to a
neighbor.
Syoen would not
speak hypothetically
about how the state
would prove where the
turkey was from.
The FWC is confident
the turkey was wild.
"The turkey in ques-
tion was of the variety
commonly found in the
wild in Florida," FWC
spokesman Gary Morse
said. "If the turkey had
been identifiable as
a domestic breed, he
would not be charged
for the illegal taking of a
wild turkey."
Travis said prosecu-
tors on Tuesday again
proposed their original
plea offer: six months of


probation, 25 hours of
community service and
minimal court costs.
"Oh, believe me, I told
them what I thought of
that deal," he said.

Still, Goodwin expects
a "course of action" to
be decided in the next
two weeks based on
McCluskey's work, add-
ing she would like to
take a tour of Lamarque
and meet with parents
in North Port.
"We have to work
with these parents
to put these children
somewhere else,"
Goodwin said. "I'm
very concerned; this
has moved to a priority
status for me. We need
to do something really
quickly."
Lamarque parent
Jennifer Coppola,
who currently has the
Sarasota-based Mallard
Law Firm investigating
whether it can file a law-
suit against the district
and the school's drywall
manufacturer, told the
board she removed
her daughter from the
school and the child
immediately showed
improvements in her
health. She's concerned
about her son, who still
attends the school.
"People keep saying
it's not the school, but
there are no problems
at any other schools,"
Coppola said.
As for Horton, he's
not returning his son to
the school, and knows
that a transfer might
be denied. Left with no
choice but to wait and
see what happens next,
he's convinced that
Lamarque is a danger.
"It's a bad situation,"
Horton said, adding,
"We already pulled
him out of the school
anyway. He's not going

Jerry Travis, 74, has been photographing wild turkeys and other
birds that have been ruining the yard and patio at his Punta
Gorda home as evidence for his court case. In October, Travis was
charged with killing a wild turkey out of season, after he shot
one. Travis learned this week his motion to dismiss the charge
would not be considered; he tried to say the turkey wasn't "wild."
Court documents have been piling up, but Travis representing
himself plans to go to trial if he has to.


COSTS PILING UP
The Sarasota County School Board agreed last year to pay
USF professor and toxicologist Dr. James McCluskey as much as
$215,500 to figure out what's going on at Lamarque Elementary
School, which has been plagued with a rotten egg-type stench since
opening in 2006.
According to school district Chief Operating Officer Scott Lempe,
McCluskey's report is expected at the end of the month. So far,
McCluskey has been tasked with looking for"themes"at Lamarque,
Lempe said, and has thus far interviewed nine "key staff members"
at the school since he was hired in November. It's unknown if the
staff members included teachers, support staff at the school, or
both.
It's unknown how many staff members will be interviewed by
the time McCluskey's work is complete, as district spokesman Scott
Ferguson was unable to provide the exact figure Wednesday.
But if McCluskey indeed pockets the entire $215,500 and
interviews no more than the nine staff members at the school
with whom he already has spoken, then he's due to make roughly
$23,944 per interview. That's in addition to the $250,000 the district
paid in 2013 to Tampa-based OHC Environmental Engineering, and
the $100,000 the district has spent each year on trying to solve the
Lamarque smell since the school opened.

Punta Gorda's newest attraction, Paths that Teach, allows people to view the region's plant life
up close. Guided tours are led by the University of Florida's master gardeners, who will point
out the mangroves, trees and shrubs that also provide food for a wide variety of Florida crea-
tures, including alligators, wading birds, turtles, fish, raccoons and crabs. Here, Donna Worthly,
a University of Florida master gardener, speaks to the group at the beginning of the tour.
Attending the tour are Richard and Joanne Collins, Gert Dussault, Louise DiNino, Carolyn Honour,
Bob Bechtold, Uta Metzger and Tricia Lee.


Julie Conte looks on as Ute Metzger checks out a
flower on one of the plants along the pathway
to see if it has a fragrance.

SECOND PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE
FFY2014 COMMUNITY
DEVELOPMENT BLOCK
GRANT
Charlotte County is applying to
the Florida Department of Eco-
nomic Opportunity (FDEO) Small
Cities Community Development
Block Grant (CDBG) program. The
County is eligible for up to
$750,000 of CDBG grant funds
provided the County meets applic-
able program requirements.
These funds must be used for
one of the following purposes:
1. To benefit low and moderate
income persons; or
2. To aid in the prevention or
elimination of slums or blight; or
3. To meet other community
development needs of recent
origin having a particular
urgency because existing condi-
tions pose a serious and imme-
diate threat to the health or wel-
fare of the community and
where other financial resources
are not available to meet such
needs.
The categories of activities for
which these grant funds may be
used are in the areas of Housing,
Neighborhood Revitalization,
Commercial Revitalization, or
Economic Development and
include such improvement activi-
ties as acquisition of real proper-
ty, loans to private-for-profit busi-
ness, purchase of machinery and
equipment, construction of infra-
structure, rehabilitation of houses
and commercial buildings, and
energy conservation. Additional
information regarding the range
of activities that may be under-
taken will be provided at the pub-
lic hearing.
"Charlotte County proposes to
submit an application for funding
in the amount of up to $750,000
under the Neighborhood Revital-
ization category for portions of
the East & West Spring Lake
Wastewater Expansion project
where median incomes are below
the Low to Moderate Income (LMI)
levels for the County. The funding
will be utilized to offset the cost
of the sewer hookup including
abandonment of the septic tank
for LMI households to the central
wastewater system as service
becomes available. In developing
the application for submission to
FDEO, Charlotte County will not
displace any persons as a result
of planned CDBG activities."
The public hearing to receive citi-
zen views concerning the applica-
tion will be held in the County
Commission Chambers located at
the Murdock Administration Cen-
ter, 18500 Murdock Circle, Room

Career, education fair



offers opportunities


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER

ENGLEWOOD -
Heather Lupinetti is
organizing a Community
Career and Education
Fair to create more local
opportunities.
"I think the need in the
community is matching
(people to professions),
and getting people to
understand the require-
ments of different posi-
tions and jobs," Lupinetti
said Wednesday.
The fair, which is set
for 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Wednesday at the Tringali
Recreation Center,
3460 N. Access Road,
Englewood, is a joint
effort by the Charlotte
County Sheriff's Office,
the Charlotte County
Society of Human
Resource Management,
and Charlotte County
Parks and Recreation.
According to Lupinetti,
a CCSHRM member and
a CCSO employee, the fair
will be "a one-stop shop,"
where the community
can come to learn about
which career opportuni-
ties are available, what
skills are required, and
where people can study
to learn new skills.
As of Wednesday, at
least six employers and 19
educational institutions
- colleges, vocational
schools and training
centers planned to
send representatives to
the Tringali Center to talk
about opportunities.
"It's going to be our first
time doing a career and
education fair all in one,"
Lupinetti said.
In addition to em-
ployers and schools,
Southwest Florida
Works will be on hand to
provide information as
to what sort of financial
assistance is available to
those hoping to continue

a relationship and
supplies the means by
which the partners are
allowed to take care of
each other in situations
where otherwise they
would be legally barred
from doing so," Raffel
said.
"My partner and I
have been together for
17 years, and I know
that she wants to be
cremated and her ashes
scattered at Useppa
Island," she said. "Her
parents can come right
into town and take her
body back to Gainesville
to be buried which
is what she does not
want and they can do
it with the full support of
the law.
"Legally, I have no
right to carry out her


their education. Human
resource professionals
will be at the event to
assist with job-seeking
skills, such as r6sum=6
writing and interview
skills.
Lisa O'Connor, em-
ployee relations manager
for the Charlotte County
Clerk of Courts, said the
clerk's office plans to be
at the event.
The office will send
representatives to talk
"about the job opportu-
nities that are available
and the requirements.
We do significant hiring,"
O'Connor said. And often
the requirements for an
entry level position are
simply typing skills and
professionalism.
O'Connor said the
"work that we do is really
substantive and challeng-
ing," such as criminal
situations and civil issues.
And the people the office
hires tend to be drawn to
that. "Those are the peo-
ple we look for people
who like a challenge."
On the education
side, Charlotte Technical
Center's job placement
specialist, B.J. Holbach,
said the center will send
representatives to the
fair to talk about its
programs.
According to Holbach,
the center offers different
kinds of opportunities to
cater to different needs.
The center hopes to
"talk about dual enroll-
ment, as well as adult
programs and continu-
ing education (classes
offered) in the evening,"

wishes," she added. "No
right at all, and the rea-
son why is simple: I'm
invisible. I have no voice.
I am asking you today to
give me one."
The proposed ordi-
nance, which allows
for reciprocity between
Punta Gorda and other
municipalities with
registries, not only
establishes a registry
within the city, but it
creates new, enforceable
rights for persons in a
"domestic partnership."
Domestic partners can
enforce their rights by
means of a private, civil
action if necessary.
A domestic partner-
ship is a legal or person-
al relationship between
two adult individuals not
related to each other by
blood who live together
in a mutual residence
and share a common
domestic life, providing
for each other's basic


she said. "It also gives us
the opportunity to talk to
the general public about
what they're looking
for," so the center can
expand its programs in
the future.
Holbach said the
center has a high rate
a placement because it
works with the business
community to find out
what skills or trades are
needed, and then offers
new programs based on
that feedback.
One example she
pointed out was a
residential electric and
wiring course, which
provides skills for which
the Charlotte-DeSoto
Building Industry
Association expressed a
need. The center plans
to offer the course at
night for the students'
convenience, and hopes
to open the course in
February. Students should
be able to complete the
course by the end of June.
Holbach added stu-
dents sometimes "have
the opportunity to apply
for financial funding
sponsored by the busi-
ness community."
Lupinetti said local
business owners are
welcome to call her to
RSVP for a space for the
event. Businesses that
join will be able to talk
about their current open-
ings, as well as the skills
needed by their industry
or profession.
For more information
about the event, contact
Lupinetti at 941-205-5612.

needs, but are joined
neither by marriage nor
a civil union.
According to the 2010
U.S. Census, there were
approximately 7.7 million
households in the United
States headed by unmar-
ried couples, a roughly
41 percent increase over
the previous decade.
City Councilman Tom
Cavanaugh received a
wild round of applause
when he made the
motion to move forward
with crafting an ordi-
nance that establishes
a registry and allows for
enforceability.
"I believe that Punta
Gorda should move
forward and join the
ranks of our neighboring
Florida municipalities
that have adopted
domestic partnership
registries," he said. "I
believe it's the right thing
to do."

More than 100 supporters of a domestic partnership registry in Punta Gorda attended Wednes-
day's City Council meeting to urge the council to pass the measure, which would afford unmar-
ried gay and heterosexual couples some of the same benefits and privileges legally afforded
to married couples. Dozens of members of advocacy groups Equality Punta Gorda and Equality
Florida wore red shirts to show their support.

I OUR VIEW

State's sale

of conservation

land failing

OUR POSITION: A bad idea
to start with, the state's sell-off of
conservation lands is not going
well, and we're glad.
We can imagine the
sales pitch.
"Let me sell you
a good piece of land, cheap.
It's been off the market for a
while but it is a prime piece of
property. Of course, it is mostly
wetlands. And you may find it in-
habited by bears or endangered
Florida panthers. And there is no
access by road."
How many bidders would you
expect?
Well, Gov. Rick Scott and law-
makers were hopeful they would
attract enough local govern-
ments and private buyers to turn
previously protected state land
into a $50 million windfall.
The idea was to sell land they
deemed no longer in need of
conserving and take that money
and buy land that is more de-
serving. There is some common
sense to that argument but
the flaw in thinking is if that land
needed conserving in the first
place, what has changed?
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection listed
several parcels that totaled about
5,300 acres in August. That
list included Charlotte Harbor
Preserve State Park, Gasparilla
Island State Park, the Yucca Pens
Preserve in the Charlotte Harbor
Flatwoods and Cayo Costa State
Park.
The response from environ-
mental groups and local politi-
cians was swift and loud.
The state has been hammered
by hundreds of organizations
and individuals who wrote
letters and emails to attack the
sell-off of sensitive lands.
Groups such as 1000 Friends
of Florida wrote that the lands
on the list still have clear value
for conservation.
With interest less than en-
thusiastic, the state has already
lifted a third of the 5,300 acres
off the for-sale list.
And, more than three-
fourths of the land still up for
sale is in the Green Swamp in
Polk County. Those parcels,
known as the Hilochee Wildlife
Management Area, are inhabited
by bears and some of the few
remaining panthers in Florida.
Not only are conservationists
objecting to the sale of that land,
but so too is the Polk County
Commission, which recently
sent a letter to the governor
opposing the sale.
We're not sure how much
protesting needs to be done. It
is difficult to imagine a private
entity wanting to purchase this
type of property with its limited
access, swamps and endangered
species. The opportunities for
development appear slim.
DEP officials are still sorting
through the list of property for
sale and have plans to announce
a final, pared-down list in a
month or so.
Their hope is that local
governments or conservation
groups will swoop in to buy
up the property. But, those
hopes are unrealistic we believe
because: a) most environmental
groups and local governments
are strapped for cash, and b) the
cost of managing the property
would be a challenge to anyone
who buys it without plans to
develop it.
That leaves private business as
the most attractive bidder.
The Florida Legislature and
Gov. Scott would like to run
the state as a business. But as
attractive as that idea is to some,
they are learning the realities of
mixing business and politics.
This scheme to sell off land
in order to buy more was a bad
idea from the start, and lawmak-
ers who don't already know this


lesson are finding bad business
ideas don't work any better for
state government than they do
for short-sighted entrepreneurs.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR


Ask permission
for Hawaii vacation

Editor:
Mr. President, I'm so
tired of the blame game.
Every politician, Democrat
and Republican alike, went
home for Christmas recess.
Hey, you took your fam-
ily to Hawaii. Do you hear
anyone squawking about
the fact we have to foot
the $800,000 bill toward
Michele's birthday gift?
(She's spending a few extra
days alone in Hawaii.) Now,
I don't have a problem with
that she's the first lady
and needs Air Force One
to fly her back. I just wish
I was asked. After all, as a
taxpayer I have to pay for
that flight.
Instead of blaming the
Republicans for not wanting
to extend unemployment
benefits for three months,
without some way of pay-
ing for it, which I think is
reasonable, because I can
think of many government
departments that need a
little trimming maybe
you should have thought
twice about that gift, unless
of course, you're planning
on paying for all of it.
And isn't it interesting that
under your tenure, the gap
between the rich and the
poor has grown? Whose fault
is that? Not Bush's and not
the Republicans. Why can't
you just for once show some
class and not behave like a
whiner and own it.
Your policies, Mr.
President, have failed the


American people, e
the middle class. S
the very people yo
blame, the rich, se
getting richer. Is it
you've become an
and skillfully learn
scam hard-working

an excellent program for us.
While walking from
Fishermen's Village to
Shreve Street, we learned
about the native and
non-native plants that lined
the path, as well as the
difference between invasive
and non-invasive plants. We
learned about the impor-
tance of the mangroves for
maintenance of our eco-
system, as well as how the
"pathway" plants can fit into
our landscapes.
What a wonderful re-
source for both new and
not-so-new residents of
the area and for visitors
interested in learning
more about our Florida
ecosystems.

We are beginning to see

for whatever reason, remain
at the lower rungs of the
ladder of success.

Founding fathers
would be ashamed

Editor:
Qualification-
Accountability-
Responsibility- three
words that do not apply
to members of Congress
presiding over our country.
Now, a rhetorical question.
What other companies,
organizations or important
facilities ignore these three
categories? None hence
the rhetorical connotation.
What kind of a country
have our founding fathers
created that did not de-
mand these to be part of
the vetting system. I cannot
fathom or even guess why
they did not include the
discipline which is forged
by these words. More
confusing is why it took
250-plus years for the
unraveling of our country's
foundation to recognize its
shortcomings. It's now ob-
vious that the election and
rise of our present leader
devoid of these principles
have been able to enact
his ideology to transform
America into a socialistic,
third nation look-alike
which is doomed for failure.
If our founding fathers
could see us now, they
would all wish they could
have done a mulligan.
Hope it is not too late.
Remember to vote our
founding fathers' answer to
their mulligan prayer.

Fox News fair;
Obama is problem
Editor:
The letter "All the news
that's faux" is the pot calling
the kettle black. Channels
like MSNBC are in Obama's
pocket. Fox News is number
one because it is fair and
balanced. Questioning
whether Obama was born


in Kenya is searching for
truth not racist. Obama is in
power because of the white
vote.
Military salute by veter-
ans out of uniform during
the raising and lowering
of the U.S. flag is proper
since it was signed into law
by the National Defense
Authorization Act of 2008
and is also allowed during
the playing of our National
Anthems by the same Act in
2009.
Each U.S. president has to
stand by what he has done
or failed to do during his
administration, but to keep
bringing up President Bush
does not take away all the
many wrongs by this present
administration.
President Obama has a
nice personality, however
while he is still representing
America he should act more
presidential and not chew
gum at the Kennedy Center
nor take pictures of famous
people while attending a
funeral, and that is nothing
compared to his admin-
istration's actions on Fast
and Furious, Benghazi, IRS
problems and Obamacare.
None of that is phony!
The Affordable Care Act
affects all Americans and it
becomes more frightening
as we are finding out what
is in it. It is a lot like what
happened in Austria and
Germany by a man who also
had great oratory skills ...
you might remember him by
the name Adolf Hitler.

I can't believe
I agree with Pitts

Editor:
As a new, full-year res-
ident of Port Charlotte I
thought I would wait a
few months to assess the
political and social flavor of
letters to the editor before I
submitted my own.
Never in my wildest
dreams did I imagine that
my first letter would be to
agree with Leonard Pitts'
Jan. 6, "Idiocy ..." column.
I have read Pitts' columns
for many years and can
only recall one time when
I thought his column was
anything other than just
grinding a liberal or racial
axe. Usually I chalked
his musings up to typical
liberal misunderstanding
of human nature and about
how the world actually
works.
The only thing in Pitts'
column that smacks of
liberal thinking is his state-
ment about Phil Robertson
needing to wake up and
smell the 21st century.
That is classic liberalism:
thinking that because the
calendar has changed, so
should values. For the rest,
Pitts is almost spot on with
his assessment of the First
Amendment. While the First
does protect free speech, it
protects free speech against
the government.
The liberal establishment
(i.e., mainstream media,
left leaning court systems,
and liberal agenda-pushing
entertainment industry)
doesn't like such a limited
concept so they take it
upon themselves to do the
punishing. But inasmuch as
A&E wants to be politically
correct, they also want to
be profitable. Fortunately
for Mr. Robertson and the
duck-watching public, a
man who is secure in his
beliefs, popular or not,
often has the last laugh.

Trust in government but definitely verify


Of all the numbers
thrown at us over
the course of last
year, one stands out for
me. I hope we can avoid
repeating it this year.
That number is 12.
It's the percentage
of Americans in a
December Quinnipiac
poll who said they trust
the government in
Washington to do what
is right most or all of the
time. It's a depressingly
small number es-
pecially compared to
the 41 percent who say
they "hardly ever" trust
the government. This
meshes with recent polls
that echo a bleak truth:
trust in government is at
historically low levels.
That's not all,
though. Americans are
feeling vulnerable and
highly distrustful of
both government and
private-sector prying.
More worrisome, a few
months ago an AP poll
found that fewer than a
third of Americans trust


one another. The poll's
message is clear: Our
society is in the midst of
a crisis in trust.
This might seem
like a touchy-feely
concern, but it's not.
Trust is essential to our
political system and
our way of life. The
belief that people and
institutions will do what
they say they will do is
the coin of the realm in
our society. It is what
allows people to work
together in their daily
interactions with others
and in their commu-
nities, legislatures and
Congress. Negotiation,
compromise, collegiality,
and the mechanisms


our complex and diverse
society depends on are
impossible without trust.
Trust is one of the med-
ley of virtues that have
allowed our institutions
to develop and prosper,
along with honesty, com-
petence, responsibility,
and civility.
A breakdown in trust
between Congress and
the executive branch
invariably brings prob-
lems: the turmoil of
the Vietnam War era,
Watergate, Iran-Contra,
our current budget
travails. A society-wide
lack of trust imposes real
costs. It makes the draft-
ing of laws and their im-
plementation extremely
difficult: government
becomes more expensive
because it requires more
emphasis on regulations
and enforcement.
In fact, you could argue
that we see all around us
the results of our trust
deficit. Government
dysfunction, an economy
performing below its


potential, public officials'
scandals and misdeeds,
trusted institutions' will-
ingness to skirt the law
and standards of good
conduct, our social safety
net under attack because
people mistrust recipi-
ents all of these speak
to a society struggling as
trust weakens.
Yet here's a question.
Do the polls match your
experience? In my case,
they do not. Trust still
figures in my dealings
with institutions and in-
dividuals, most of whom
are good people trying
to live a decent life and
to be helpful to others.
They deal with one
another honorably and
with care. I'm convinced
that this is because, no
matter what the polls
say at the moment,
the habits instilled by
parents, schools, and a
vast number of public
and private institutions
do not just disappear.
These habits in-
clude the experience


of grappling with the
challenges that represen-
tative democracy throws
at us and they serve as
a reminder that we need
trust in one another to
make our national exper-
iment in representative
government work.
As idealistic or even
naive as this may sound,
we need to work toward
more trust among our
people and between
people and their govern-
ment. Some new laws
might help, but the chal-
lenge is more basic than
law can address. Higher
standards of conduct at
all levels of American life
must become the norm.
Trust may have weak-
ened, but most of us do
not see or experience a
corrupt America. Even as
we have become a larger,
more diverse nation,
a sense of community
remains crucially
important to make this
country safe and secure
for ourselves and our
children.


We cannot take for
granted our success at
self-government over
the centuries: the only
invisible hand guiding
and preserving our insti-
tutions is our collective
will.
Events in recent years
have given us plenty of
reason to be distrustful.
Clearly, healthy skep-
ticism is warranted in
the wake of the NSA
revelations, the prob-
lems with the rollout of
the Affordable Care Act,
and other evidence of
both government and
corporate misbehavior.
In the end, however,
"trust but verify" is still
the golden standard.
Our ability to function
and move forward as a
society rests on trust.
Think about it.
Lee Hamilton is
director of the Center
on Congress at Indiana
University He was a
member of the U.S.
House ofRepresentatives
for 34 years.


Congress should limit focus to economic agenda


w


while the na-
tional eco-
nomic indices


are improving unem-
ployment numbers are
moving down, job num-
bers in key segments are
looking better, consumer
confidence is up, the
stock market has reached
record highs, and deficits
have been decreasing-
there is still work to do.
So as members of
Congress gather in the
nation's capital, it is my
hope that they do so
with the desire to pursue
a limited but aggres-
sive agenda in 2014 to
strengthen our economic
conditions and help mil-
lions of people who are
longing for the chance to
live the American dream.
The probability of
Congress working across
party lines toward the
common goal of an
improved economy is
made less likely in a po-
litically charged election
year, when each party is
trying to make gains in
the chamber they don't
control. While part of
the reason for gridlock
is rooted in a true
philosophical difference
in how to achieve those
goals, much of it is due
to a lack of agreement on
the goals themselves.
In a spirit of benev-
olent bipartisanship,
I offer the following
seven agenda items for
Congress to consider.
There is a real oppor-
tunity for some good
old-fashioned political


horse-trading.
Republican U.S. Rep.
Paul Ryan of Wisconsin
and Democratic U.S.
Sen. Patty Murray of
Washington State recent-
ly teamed up to deliver
a negotiated agreement
on the budget, or at least
a portion of it. Their
success could become
contagious and spur oth-
er congressional pairings
for policy negotiations.
Debt Reduction. For
a traditional Republican
issue that should spark
excitement among
fiscal conservatives,
members should focus
on a reasonable and
workable debt reduction
plan that encompasses a
more serious approach
than the sequestration.
Recognizing that it was
fashioned in a way that
both sides would find
objectionable, seques-
tration was intended
to force negotiators to
the table. Instead, it
became a high-stakes
game of chicken, with no
winners.
Tax Reform. Those
who take their fiduciary
responsibilities seriously
should jump on the
chance to address tax




SNeed

reform. A simpler, fairer
system that benefits
average Americans and
not special interests
could be developed,
discussed, debated and
implemented. This could
have the added benefit
of reducing the need for
government regulations
and regulators.
Overseas Capital.
Republicans should for-
mulate a policy designed
to bring capital back
from overseas. Without
making this an excuse
to reward the bad, or at
least greedy, behavior
that contributed to our
economic decline, incen-
tives could be employed
to return those dollars
that were generated in
the United States and
put them to work here at
home.
Democrats are already
focused on three im-
portant issues: raising
the minimum wage to
a living wage, finishing
the job on immigration



Howa


reform and fixing and
expanding the nation's
crumbling and outdated
infrastructure. All three
initiatives are over-
whelmingly supported by
the American people, ac-
cording to poll after poll.
As with every potential
policy, the devil is in the
details. There's plenty of
room for negotiation.
Minimum Wage. At
$10 an hour for a 40-hour
workweek, an individual
could earn $20,800 a
year. At the current rate
of $7.25 they might reach
$15,080. To put that in
perspective, the poverty
level in the United States
is currently set at $23,550
for a family of four. Those
under the poverty level
are eligible for govern-
ment programs at a cost
to taxpayers.
Immigration. The
U.S. Senate has already
passed a bipartisan
immigration bill; the
House should take it
up, amend it and go to


conference to hammer
out the differences. In
other words, they should
do their jobs.
Infrastructure. There is
no better way of creating
jobs while improving our
quality of life than in-
vesting in our infrastruc-
ture. Most of the jobs
created are private-sector
jobs, which can have a
multiplying effect on
other service-related jobs
in a region.
Health Care. Lastly
wherever you fall
on the scale from
ardent supporter to
single-mindedly focused
detractor, you must
recognize the Affordable
Care Act is the law of the
land. It has withstood
legal challenges, obstruc-
tionist efforts, a botched
rollout and incessant
second-guessing by
insurance companies,
politicos and the news
media.
Lost in all of this is the
real need of people to

AI-Qaida ramps up violence


By ZEINA KARAM
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRrrITER
BEIRUT -Al-Qaida is position-
ing itself as a vanguard defending
the Sunni community against
what it sees as persecution by
Shiite-dominated governments
across Syria, Lebanon and Iraq.
As a result, a Syrian rebellion
whose aim was the removal of
President Bashar Assad is evolving
into something both bigger and
more ambiguous: a fight increas-
ingly led by Sunni jihadis often
foreign and animated mainly
by hatred of Shiites who are
determined to create an Islamic
state.
Battling these extremists is a
coalition that includes moderates
who are horrified that their rebel-
lion in Syria has been discredited,
with parts of the country falling


under strict religious law.
For moderates in the Middle
East, the renewed assertiveness
of the extremists is increasingly
taking on the aspect of a regional
calamity.
"The war in Syria has poured
gasoline on a raging fire in Iraq,
and conflicts in both countries
are feeding upon one another
and complicating an already
complex struggle," said Fawaz
A. Gergez, director of the Middle
East Center at the London School
of Economics. "Now the rever-
berations of the Syria war are
being felt on Arab streets, partic-
ularly Iraq and Lebanon, and are
aggravating Sunni-Shiite tensions
across the Arab Middle East."
Why now? Experts see a fun-
damental al-Qaida characteristic

Food firms cut 6.4 trillion calories

ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
WASHINGTON Some
of the nation's largest food
companies have cut calories
in their products by more
than 6.4 trillion, according to
a new study.
The study sponsored by
the Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation found that
between 2007 and 2012 the
companies reduced their


products' calories by the
equivalent of around 78
calories per person per day.
The total is more than four
times the amount those
companies had pledged to
cut by next year.
Seventy-eight calories
would be about the same as
an average cookie or a me-
dium apple, and the federal
government estimates an
average daily diet at around
2,000 calories. The study said


the calories cut averaged out
to 78 calories per day for the
entire U.S. population.
The 2010 pledge taken by
16 companies including
General Mills Inc., Campbell
Soup Co., ConAgra Foods
Inc., Kraft Foods Inc., Kellogg
Co., Coca-Cola Co., PepsiCo
Inc. and Hershey Co. was
to cut 1 trillion calories by
2012 and 1.5 trillion calories
by 2015.
The Robert Wood Johnson


Foundation signed on to
hold the companies account-
able, and that group hired
researchers at the University
of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill to painstakingly count
the calories in almost every
single packaged item in the

TALLAHASSEE Florida legislators
are pushing ahead with a bill designed
to make it clear people can show a gun,
or even fire a warning shot, without
drawing a lengthy prison sentence.
The legislation was partially inspired
by the case of Marissa Alexander, a
Jacksonville woman who was given a
20-year prison sentence after firing a
gun near her estranged husband during
an argument. Alexander's conviction
was thrown out by an appeals court and
she is scheduled to have a new trial this

year, but it went nowhere. But with
increased attention to Alexander's case
and Florida's gun laws, the measure is
moving ahead. A Senate committee on

WASHINGTON (AP) -
President Barack Obama
is expected to tighten
restrictions on U.S. spying
on foreign leaders and also
is considering changes in
National Security Agency
access to Americans'
phone records, according
to people familiar with a
White House review of
the nation's surveillance
programs.
Obama could unveil his
highly anticipated deci-
sions as early as next week.
Ahead of that announce-
ment, he is consulting
with lawmakers, privacy
advocates and intelligence
officials who were invited
to White House meetings
Wednesday and Thursday.
"He's at that stage
still where he's listening
and discussing with a
variety of stakeholders and
appreciates very much the
opinions and counsel he's
getting on this matter,"
White House spokesman
Jay Carney said.
Among the changes
Obama is expected to
announce is more oversight

gathering priorities and is

scrutiny of foreign leaders.
A presidential review board
recommended increasing
the number of policy
officials who help establish
those priorities, and that
could result in limits on
surveillance of allies.
Documents released
by former NSA contractor
Edward Snowden revealed
that the U.S. was monitor-
ing the communications
of several friendly foreign
leaders, including German
Chancellor Angela Merkel.


The revelations outraged
Merkel as well as other
leaders, and U.S. officials
say the disclosures have
damaged Obama's relations
around the world.
Obama and Merkel
spoke by phone
Wednesday but U.S.
officials would not say
whether they discussed the
NSA issues.
The president also is said
to be considering one of the
review board's most aggres-
sive recommendations, a


proposal to strip the NSA of
its ability to store telephone
records from millions of
Americans and instead
have phone companies or a
third party hold the records.
The NSA would be able to
access the records only by
obtaining separate court
approval for each search,
though exceptions could
be made for emergency
national security matters.
It's unclear whether
Obama will ultimately back
the proposal or how quickly
it could be carried out if he
does.
Before making his final
decisions, the president
was supposed to receive
a separate report from
a semi-independent
commission known as the
Privacy and Civil Liberties
Oversight Board, which
was created by Congress.
However, that panel's
report has been delayed
without explanation until at
least late January, meaning
it won't reach the president
until after he makes his
decisions public.
Members of that
oversight board did meet
with Obama onWednesday
and have briefed other
administration officials on
some of their preliminary
findings.


Ohio deal: Websites won't bill to delete mugs


TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -
Two Internet sites that
make money by posting
millions of mug shots
of people who've been
arrested have agreed to
stop charging them to
take down their photos
as part of a settlement in


a federal lawsuit.
The lawsuit came
about after a number
of complaints from
people who said the
websites were charging
hundreds of dollars to
remove the mug shots
even if the cases against


those arrested had been
dropped.
The settlement in U.S.
District Court in Toledo
doesn't apply to all of the
mug shot sites that can be
found online, just two -
BustedMugshots.com and
MugshotsOnline.com.


The Doctors offer small lifestyle changes that can
make a big difference to your health this year.


Similar lawsuits
have been filed in
Florida, Illinois, and
Pennsylvania while
legislators in Georgia
and Utah have passed
laws aimed at stopping
the sites from charging
to remove arrest photos.
Lawmakers in California
are considering a similar
proposal.
But efforts to rein
in the sites have been
complicated by ques-
tions about whether
the attempts infringe
on First Amendment
rights and the difficulty
of tracking down who
owns the sites, some of
which claim to origi-
nate from outside the
country.
Some operators say
they're performing a
public service by provid-
ing information about
arrest records that can
be found by parents
and neighbors without
searching through court
records.
Attorney Scott Ciolek,
who filed the lawsuit in
Ohio, says the practice of
charging a fee to remove
the mug shots amounts
to extortion. Eliminating
that part of the business
model will make it diffi-
cult for them to operate,
he said.
"That is the biggest
victory right there," he
said Tuesday. "We've
taken away their ability
to profit."
The settlement final-
ized in late December
also calls for the owner
of the two sites to pay
$7,500 and take down
the photos of the three
people who brought the
lawsuit in Ohio.
Joseph Centrich,
an attorney for the
company that runs

and MugshotsOnline.
corn, said the sites will
continue to operate and
post arrest and criminal
records but won't charge
to remove the images.
Citizens Information
Associates LLC of Austin,
Texas, which runs the
sites, already had decid-
ed in October to stop
billing people to get rid
of the photos, he said.
Settling the suit will
cost much less than
continuing to fight it,
Centrich said.

Macy's to cut 2,500
positions amid
profit forecast
WASHINGTON
(Bloomberg) Macy's Inc.,
the second-largest U.S. de-

forecast profit for its next
fiscal year that is higher
than analysts estimated
and said it would cut 2,500
jobs to reduce costs.
Profit per share in the
year through January 2015
will be $4.40 to $4.50, the
Cincinnati-based com-
pany said Wednesday in
a statement. The average
of 19 analysts' estimates
compiled by Bloomberg

and other actions will save
about $100 million a year,
Macy's said in a separate

NEWYORK

Gonorrhea and syphilis

before, while syphilis
jumped 11 percent, the
Centers for Disease

said Wednesday in a re-
port. Rates for chlamydia,

Study:


Fiber may


ward off


asthma
(Science /AAAS) -The
fiber consumed in fruits
and vegetables seems
to help quiet the over-
zealous immune system
activity that leads to such
conditions as irritable
bowel syndrome, Crohn's
disease and possibly
even colon cancer. Now
it appears that a diet rich
in fiber may also fend off
asthma, an inflammatory
condition that constricts
the airways of the lung,
by changing the way
some immune cells are
produced in the bone
marrow.
When we eat plentiful
fruits and vegetables,
the bacteria that occur
naturally in our intes-
tines help us digest the
fiber. The microbes take
"soluble" fiber such as
pectin found in apples,
pears, berries, citrus
fruits and onions and
ferment it into specific
types of fatty acids that
interact with immune
cells, helping keep
inflammation in check.
Whether this anti-inflam-
matory effect extends
beyond the digestive tract
is less clear. But the fatty
acids in question are able
to circulate through the
bloodstream, perhaps
hooking up with immune
cells throughout the body.
That could mean that
dietary fiber influences
other inflammatory
diseases, such as asthma.
It's known that asthma
has increased in west-
ernized countries since
the 1960s, during which
time the amount of fiber
consumed has also de-
clined. Moreover, asthma
is not as common in less
well-developed areas,
such as Africa, where
fruits and vegetables form
a bigger part of the diet.
To test a possible
link, immunologist
Benjamin Marsland of the
University of Lausanne
in Switzerland and
colleagues put a group of
mice on a low-fiber diet.
After two weeks, the re-
searchers had the animals
sniff an allergen derived
from dust mites (a key
trigger of human allergy
and asthma). These mice
showed exaggerated
asthmatic responses,
including inflammatory
compounds in the lungs
and the constricted
airways that cause the
wheezing and shortness
of breath so familiar to
asthmatic patients.
On the other hand,
mice that ate a diet rich
in pectin for two weeks
before getting the dust
mite extract showed a
reduced inflammatory
response. Levels of the
immune cells known as
eosinophils, and of the
antibody immunoglob-
ulin E both usually
increased in allergies and
asthma were almost
halved, and the mice
showed less constriction
of their airways.
To see if the gut
bacteria were responsible
for the fiber-mediated
benefits, the scientists
analyzed the feces of
mice on normal, low-
and high-fiber diets. In
the animals given pectin,
the kinds of bacteria
best able to produce the
anti-inflammatory fatty
acids were about twice


as prevalent as those
of other bacteria more
common in a low-fiber
diet. On closer exam-
ination, the researchers
found proportionally
higher amounts of the
fatty acids not only in the
stool of the pectin-eating
mice, but also in their
blood.


China's moon mission captivates scientists


BEIJING (LA Times)-
When China landed its
first lunar rover on the
moon last month, many
Americans reacted with
a shrug. After all, the U.S.
sent men to the moon
more than 40 years ago,
and the Soviets landed a
rover there too.
But among lunar
scientists, the Chang'e 3
mission has generated
considerable interest.
They say the lander and
the rover, equipped with
ground-penetrating
radar, cameras, a tele-
scope and spectroscopic
instruments, could gather
significant new informa-
tion, especially relating to
the chemical composition
and depth of the lunar
soil.
Such data, they say,
could shed light on the
history of the moon and,
by extension, Earth. It
could also help humans


design equipment to
mine the lunar surface
for oxygen and other
elements.
In addition, experts say,
the Chinese mission is
testing new equipment
and technology that
could be useful for future
missions manned or
unmanned not only
to the moon but also to
Mercury or Mars.
"The parts of the moon
that have been explored
are so minuscule," said
Leroy Chiao, a former
NASA astronaut and
International Space
Station commander.
"It's like saying you sent
probes to the Earth, you
looked at small areas of
California and New York
and now you know ev-
erything there is to know.
That's not the case."
Stephen Mackwell,
director of the Lunar and
Planetary Institute in


Houston, noted that the
Change 3 mission landed
in an area the right eye
of the "Man in the Moon"
- distinctly different
from previous U.S. and
Soviet missions.
In the years since
Americans and Soviet
crafts visited the lunar
surface, he said, orbiters
launched by Europe,
Japan, the U.S. and
others have gathered
extensive data about the
moon's structure and
composition. Now, the
Chinese rover may help
validate and refine that
data, giving detailed
information about the
concentrations of ele-
ments such as titanium,
aluminum, iron, potassi-
um and sodium.
Scientists are also
watching closely to see
how the lander and the
Jade Rabbit rover survive
the frigid lunar night,


which lasts about two
weeks. The lander and
rover went into "hiber-
nation mode" on Dec. 25
and 26, respectively, and
will have to endure
temperatures dipping
perhaps as low as minus
292 degrees. The vehicles
are supposed to endure
two such long, cold
nights during the course
of the mission.
"This is very import-
ant for planning other
missions, like one to
Mercury, which could
use a lander just like
this one," said G. Jeffrey
Taylor, a researcher at
the Hawaii Institute
of Geophysics and
Planetology. "Once you
get down to minus 80 or
90, the electronics may
not survive. They must
be in containers with
little radioactive heating
units to keep things up to
a certain temperature so


they don't get damaged."
Change 3 also carries
an extreme ultraviolet
camera, which is to be
used to monitor the
Earth's plasmasphere, and
a near-ultraviolet tele-
scope to observe galaxies
and stars. Proponents of
a lunar telescope say the
moon's thin atmosphere
and slow rotation will
allow for long, uninter-
rupted observations of a
target.
"This (telescope) is
another great test," said
Taylor. "Some people
have said a telescope
on the moon would be
useful, others say it's not
useful and that we should
do them all in free space
like Hubble and Keppler.
It's been a debate. So now
we'll find out if we can
do observations from the
moon really effectively or
it's easier to do it another
way."

Syria rebels seize
al-Qaida base
in north
BEIRUT (AP) Syrian
rebels ousted an al-Qaida
linked group from its
local headquarters in
a key northern city
Wednesday, part of a wid-
ening campaign against
the extremist group in
opposition-held areas,
activists said.
The capture of the
base, formerly a children's
hospital in Aleppo,
underscores the intensity
of the rebel-on-rebel
fighting that has raged for
days between moderate
factions and their one-
time allies, fighters from
the Islamic State of Iraq
and the Levant.
Meanwhile, two
Swedish journalists who
were abducted in Syria
were released after a
month and a half in cap-
tivity. Dozens of local and
foreign journalists have
been killed or kidnapped
in Syria.

Train carrying oil
derails, catches
fire in Canada

PLASTER ROCK,
New Brunswick (AP) -
Officials in Canada said
a derailed freight train
carrying crude oil and
propane continued to
burn Wednesday, and
about 150 residents
remained evacuated from
their homes. There were
no deaths or injuries.
Of the 17 cars that
derailed late Tuesday in
New Brunswick province,
five contain crude oil and
four contain propane,
said Claude Mongeau, the
chief executive of CN Rail.
Some of the propane cars
are venting and some
of the crude cars are
burning, he said.
"It is contained, but it is
evolving," Mongeau said.
The train's brakes
came on unexpectedly,
Canada's Transportation
Safety Board said based
on preliminary informa-
tion from the rail compa-
ny and police.

Palestinian official:
Blast kills
Gaza militant
JERUSALEM (AP)- A
Palestinian militant was
killed in an explosion
in the Gaza Strip on
Wednesday, a health of-
ficial said, prompting an
Islamic group to threaten
attacks against Israel.
The circumstances
of the death were not
immediately clear. Gaza
Health Ministry spokes-
man Ashraf al-Kidra said
the man was killed in an
Israeli attack. The Israeli
military said it was not
aware of any incident and
denied responsibility.
Al-Kidra said
Mohammed al-Ejlla, 33,
was killed near the border
with Israel. He said two
teenagers were slightly
wounded in the incident.
The Islamic Jihad
militant group confirmed
that al-Ejlla was one of its
fighters in a text message.
It said he was killed by an
Israeli tank shell while on
"a mission."
Japan to nationalize
280 islands
TOKYO (The Yomiuri
Shimbun) Japan will
nationalize about 280
of the about 400 remote
islands that serve as
markers for determining
Japan's territorial waters,
the state minister for oce-


anic policy and territorial
issues has announced.
Under the plan,
announced Tuesday, the
government will complete
its search for the islands'
owners by June. Islands
whose owners have not
been tracked down by
then will be registered on
the national asset ledger.
The move aims to


clarify the government's
intention to protect
territories and territorial
waters by designating
remote islands as "im-
portant national territo-
ries," and to reinforce the
management of marine
resources and national
security.

Morsi's murder
trial postponed
in Egypt
CAIRO (LA Times)-
Egyptian authorities on
Wednesday abruptly
called off a court ap-
pearance by deposed
president Mohammed
Morsi, saying bad weath-
er prevented a helicopter
flight from his prison in
northern Egypt to the
heavily guarded police
complex in the capital
where he is on trial.
After a brief procedural
hearing, the case was
adjourned until Feb. 1,
lawyers said. Morsi and
his 14 co-defendants are
accused of incitement to
commit murder.

Turkish
government
sacks 350 police
(LA Times) A power
struggle between Turkish
Prime Minister Recep
Tayyip Erdogan and an
exiled Muslim cleric
sharpened Tuesday with
the government purg-
ing 350 police officers
involved in the anti-cor-
ruption sweeps that have
netted figures close to
Erdogan.
The firings and reas-
signments, mostly to
less influential positions,
failed to halt the raids
targeting graft and
bribery at top levels of
government. Another law
enforcement sweep of
port and rail operations
in five cities brought 25
more corruption suspects
into custody, Turkish and
foreign media reported
from Ankara, the capital.

Ethiopia rejects
Egypt's Nile offer
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia
(Bloomberg) Ethiopia re-
jected a proposal that would
guarantee Egypt the rights
to most of the Nile River's
water, as disagreements
cast doubt over future
talks about Africa's biggest
hydropower project.
The 6,000-mega-
watt Grand Ethiopian
Renaissance Dam on
Ethiopia's Blue Nile River,
set to be completed in 2017,
has raised concern in Cairo
that it will reduce the flow
of the Nile, which provides
almost all of Egypt's water.
The Blue Nile is the main
tributary of the Nile. The
$4.2 billion dam 19 miles
from Sudan's border will
benefit agricultural and
power interests in the region
and not cause water losses
downstream, Ethiopia says.


SAN DIEGO (AP) -
Shirley Parrello knows that
her youngest boy believed
in his mission in Iraq.
But as she watches Iraqi
government forces try to
retake the hard-won city
of Fallujah from al-Qaida-
linked fighters, she can't
help wondering if it was
worth Marine Lance Cpl.
Brian Parrello's sacrifice.
"I'm starting to feel that
his death was in vain," the
West Milford, N.J., woman
said of her 19-year-old son,
who died in an explosion
there on Jan. 1, 2005. "I'm
hoping that I'm wrong. But
things aren't looking good
over there right now."
The 2004 image of two
charred American bodies
hanging from a bridge as a
jubilant crowd pelted them
with shoes seared the city's
name into the American
psyche. The brutal house-
to-house battle to tame the
Iraqi insurgent stronghold
west of Baghdad cemented
its place in U.S. military
history.
But while many are
disheartened at Fallujah's
recent fall to Islamist
forces, others try to place
it in the context of Iraq's
history of internal struggle
since the ouster of dictator
Saddam Hussein in 2003.
And they don't see the
reversal as permanent.
"I'm very disappointed
right now, very frustrated,"
says retired Marine Col.

manded the regimental

"But this is part of this

another fight, another
battle in this long struggle
against terrorism and
oppression."
Former scout sniper Earl
J. Catagnus Jr. fought and
bled in the taking of that
ancient city on the banks
of the Euphrates River.
Now a military historian,
Catagnus feels the battle
has taken on an almost
disproportionate impor-
tance in the American
mind.
"If you watch'NCIS'or
anything that has a Marine
... they always say, 'Oh, I
was in Fallujah,'" says the
Purple Heart recipient,


who left the military as a
staff sergeant in 2006 and
is now an assistant pro-
fessor of history at Valley
Forge Military Academy &
College inWayne, Pa. "For
the new generation, it's
because everybody keeps
mentioning it. And that is
the battle that really made
a warrior a warrior....
"It's just for us as
Americans, because we've
elevated that battle to such
high standards... that it
becomes turned into the
'lost cause,' the Vietnam
War syndrome."
In the annals of the
Marine Corps, the battle
for Fallujah looms large.
The fighting there began
in April 2004 after four
security contractors from
Blackwater USA were killed
and the desecrated bodies


of two were hung from
abridge. The so-called
second battle of Fallujah
- code-named Operation
Phantom Fury came
seven months later.
For several bloody
weeks, the Marines went
house-to-house in what
has been called some of
the heaviest urban combat
involving the Corps since
the Battle of Hue City,
Vietnam, in 1968. Historian
Richard Lowry, who
interviewed nearly 200
veterans of the Iraq battle,
likens it to "a thousand
SWAT teams going through
the city, clearing criminals
out."
"They entered darkened
rooms, kicking down
doors, never knowing if
they would find an Iraqi
family hunkered down in
fear or an Islamist terrorist
waiting to shoot them and
kill them," says Lowry,
author of the book "New
Dawn: The Battles for
Fallujah."
About 100 Americans
died and another 1,000
were wounded during
the major fighting there,
Lowry says, adding that
it's difficult to overstate
Fallujah's importance in
the Iraq war.
"Up until that time,
the nation was spiraling
into anarchy, totally out
of control," says Lowry, a
Vietnam-era submarine
veteran.


Smoking remains global growth market


(LA Times) Despite
a steep drop in the
number of smokers in
the United States over
the last three decades,
researchers say that
cigarettes remain a
growth industry for the
rest of the world because
of expanding population.
In a package of
studies published online
Tuesday in the Journal
of the American Medical
Association, researchers
found that the total
number of world smok-
ers with a pack-a-day
habit had "increased
significantly."
Even though the
global smoking rate has
declined since 1980 by
roughly 25 percent for
men and 42 percent
for women, the total
number of smokers has
grown from 721 million
to 967 million. The total
number of cigarettes
consumed annually has
risen from 4.96 trillion to
6.25 trillion.
"The number of smok-
ers has increased steadily
worldwide, and there are
preliminary indications
that global prevalence
among men increased in

Stocks slip as a sluggish




start to 2014 drags on


NEWYORK (AP) -The
stock market stumbled
Wednesday as investors
waited for the gov-
ernment's jobs report
later this week and the
beginning of quarterly
earnings releases from
corporate America.
Traders put aside a
positive report that
showed private em-
ployers created more
jobs in December than
economists had expect-
ed. The market had a
muted reaction to the
minutes from the Federal
Reserve's mid-December


policy meeting.
Wednesday's declines
extend what has been a
muddled start to 2014.
Both the Dow Jones
industrial average and
the Standard & Poor's 500
index are down a little
less than 1 percent after
five days of trading.
The tough start should
be taken in context of
last year's exceptional
performance, when the
S&P 500 surged almost
30 percent.
After bidding up
companies' stock prices
to record levels last year,


investors are ready to
see if their bets are going
to pay off. Big, publicly
traded U.S. companies
will start reporting
their quarterly financial
results Thursday.
The Dow lost 68.20
points, or 0.4 percent,
to 16,462.74. The losses
erased more than half of
the 105-point gain the
index had on Tuesday.
The S&P 500 fell 0.39
points, or less than
0.1 percent, to 1,837.49 and
the Nasdaq composite rose
12.43 points, or 0.3 percent,
to 4,165.61.


Survey: US companies add


238K jobs, most in year


WASHINGTON (AP) -
A private survey shows
U.S. businesses added
the most jobs in a year in
December, powered by a
big gain in construction.
The figures are the latest
evidence that the econo-
my gained momentum at
the end of 2013.
Payroll processor
ADP said Wednesday
that companies add-
ed 238,000 jobs in
December, up slightly
from 229,000 in the pre-
vious month. November's
figures were revised
higher. The report
showed solid gains in
higher-paying jobs.
Construction firms hired
48,000 additional workers
in December, the most
since 2006. And manu-
facturers added 19,000
positions. Companies in
retail, transportation and
utilities also gained 47,000
jobs.
The ADP numbers


cover only private busi-
nesses and often diverge
from the government's
more comprehensive
report. But both reports
have shown a solid
pickup in hiring since
the summer.
"The job market has
kicked into a higher
gear," said Mark Zandi,
chief economist at
Moody's Analytics,
which helps prepare the
report. "We're now 4 1/2
years into this economic
recovery and there have
been a lot of false starts.
... But this time it does
feel more fundamen-
tal, more real, more
broad-based."
Last month, the Labor
Department said that
private businesses
added 203,000 jobs in
November. The govern-
ment will report Friday
on December job growth.
Economists forecast
that the government


report will show employ-
ers added 196,000 jobs
last month. That would
be similar to the healthy
average gain of 200,000
a month from August
through November.
Those increases have
helped push the unem-
ployment rate to a five-
year low of 7 percent.
Improvement in inter-
national trade, factory
orders and consumer
spending has made econ-
omists more optimistic
about economic growth
in the October-December
quarter. Many now expect
growth will be at an
annual rate of 3 percent
or higher, up from earlier
estimates that were closer
to 2 percent.
A stronger job mar-
ket is a key reason the
Federal Reserve last
month announced it
would begin to slow its
extraordinary stimulus
program.

lutions typically I
involve losing
weight, but Consum-
er Reports suggests
another idea: Why not
plan to get your financ-
es into shape, too?
Almost half of those
who set financial resolu-
tions such as spending
less, paying off debts
and saving more for
retirement achieve most
of them, a recent Fidelity
Investments study
found. To set yourself up
for success, break down
each goal into man-
ageable portions, says
Mari Adams, a financial
planner in Boca Raton,
Fla. Focus first on short-
term fixes, then work
on longer-term goals
to stay on track in the
future. You may find that
getting your finances
in shape this way is a
whole lot easier than
swearing off french fries.


Reduce your
debt

For the short term:
Wipe out credit card
balances. Most of us
carry our debt around
the hips, where our
wallets bulge with
credit cards. American
families with revolving
credit card balances
owe $15,149 on aver-
age, according to the
Federal Reserve Board.
"Even good savers can
run up big card debt
due to unforeseen
events," says Michael
Garry, a financial plan-
ner in Newtown, Pa.
When the Consumer
Reports Money Lab
analyzed ways of
prioritizing credit card
payments, it found that
paying off the one with
the highest interest
rate first resulted in the
least interest paid. To


consumer

Reports


proceed, pay as much
as you can on your
highest rate card each
month, and the min-
imum on the others.
When the first card is
paid off, concentrate
on the next highest in-
terest rate card. Repeat
until your credit card
debt is history.
For the long term:
Target your mortgage.
Eliminating your
mortgage by the time
you retire is a worth-
while goal, Garry says,
because even low-rate
loans can be burden-
some when you have
less income. Although
rates have been rising,
you may still be able
to cut your mortgage
debt by refinancing.
You can also make extra
payments toward your
loan principal. By doing
so, you'll earn a guar-
anteed return on your
investment equal to
your mortgage interest
rate. If your rate is, say,
5 1/2 percent, you're
better off paying extra
on your mortgage than
putting the money into
a low-yield bank CD.


Focus on your
savings

For the short term:
Consolidate your
accounts. Bringing your
accounts together at as
few financial institu-
tions as possible has a
number of advantages.
For starters, you'll have
less paperwork to fuss
with. And with all of
your money in one
place, your required
minimum distributions
from IRAs and the
like will be easier to


calculate. Your bigger
total balances will
probably entitle you to
reduced fees and more
personalized service,
too.
If you already do
business with a broker-
age firm or mutual fund
company that you're
happy with, that's prob-
ably the best place to
start. Call to ask what
would be involved in
transferring any other
stocks, bonds, mutual
funds, ETFs and so
forth to that financial
institution. Because
you're not liquidating
the accounts but
merely moving them
to a new custodian,
there should be no tax
consequences.
For the long term:
Sock away more for
retirement. You might
find boosting your
retirement savings rate
from, say, 7 percent
to 15 percent difficult
or even impossible.
But nudging it up to
9 percent probably
isn't, Garry says. And
Consumer Reports
Money Lab found that
the additional savings
add up. For example, if
a 50-year-old conser-
vative investor who has
been saving 7 percent
of his salary increased
it to 9 percent, at age 67
his nest egg would be at
least 10 percent larger.
Putting your extra
savings into your 401 (k)
plan, if you have one, is
the best place to start,
Adams says. For one
thing, the money comes
out of your paychecks
automatically. Your
contributions and the
money they earn over
time aren't taxed until
you begin withdrawals.
And many employers
still offer some kind of
match.

Bill to open fireworks sales takes flight in Senate


TALLAHASSEE (News
Service of Florida) -
Floridians as young as 16
would no longer have to
"lie" when buying bottle
rockets or more-power-
ful fireworks, under a
measure that received
backing in the state
Senate on Wednesday.
Members of the
Senate Commerce and
Tourism Committee, in
a 7-4 vote, supported
a measure (SB 314)
that acknowledges,
rather than eliminates,
a much-abused and
longstanding loophole
in the state's ban on
fireworks.
Currently the law
limits sales to relatively
innocuous devices
such as sparklers, while
banning sales of such


things as bottle rockets.
However, the loophole
allows the sale of aerial
and explosive devices as
long as the individuals
buying the fireworks
sign a waiver claiming
exemptions from the law
for certain agricultural
purposes.
The proposal would
require people to still
sign the waiver, but
would allow them to
declare they are doing so
for personal use.
"This is the, 'We're
done lying' bill," commit-
tee Chairwoman Nancy
Detert, R-Venice, said.
Opponents, including
several members of the
committee and the state
Fire Chiefs Association,
contend the proposal
could increase injuries


and damage from
fireworks.
Sen. Gwen Margolis,
a Miami Democrat
who voted against
the measure as she
marked her 40th year
in the Legislature on
Wednesday, said the
existing law was craft-
ed after "some really
bad scenes" involving
fireworks.
Fireworks enthusiast
Arie Fry, a 15-year-old
Plant City High School
freshman, supported
Brandes' proposal as he
told the Senate commit-
tee that he was unable to
find any farmer associa-
tions that used fireworks
to keep birds from their
crops, while admitting
his mother, Yvonne Fry,
regularly signed the

Solar flare delays
space station
supply flight

CAPE CANAVERAL
(AP) A strong solar
storm is interfering with
the latest grocery run to
the International Space
Station.
On the bright side,
the orbiting lab has won
a four-year extension,
pushing its projected
end-of-lifetime to at least
2024, a full decade from
now.
"This is a big plus for
us," said NASAs human
exploration chief, Bill
Gerstenmaier.
On Wednesday, Orbital
Sciences Corp. delayed
its space station delivery
mission for the third time.
The company's un-
manned rocket, the
Antares, was set to blast
off fromWallops Island,
Va., with a capsule full


of supplies and science
experiments, including
ants for an educational
project. But several
hours before Wednesday
afternoon's planned
flight, company officials
took the unusual step of
postponing the launch for
fear solar radiation could
doom the rocket.
Orbital Sciences' chief
technical officer, Antonio
Elias, said solar particles
might interfere with
electronics equipment in
the rocket, and lead to a
launch failure.
Although the solar
storm barely rated mod-
erate, some passenger jets
were being diverted from
the poles to avoid poten-
tial communication and
health issues. GPS devices
also were at risk.
But the six men aboard
the space station were
safe from the solar fallout,
NASA said, and satellites
also faced no threat.


Florida Rep. Radel
apologizes
to GOP colleagues
WASHINGTON (AP)
- House aides say a
Florida congressman who
pleaded guilty to cocaine
possession has apolo-
gized to his Republican
colleagues.
The aides say Rep. Trey
Radel was emotional as
he spoke briefly during
a closed-door meeting
of House Republicans.
They said Radel thanked
lawmakers who reached
out to him, said he was
in a good place and had
found a good support
group.
One aide said the law-
makers responded with
moderate applause.
The 37-year-old Radel
is a tea party-backed
freshman who pleaded
guilty in November to
cocaine possession and
was sentenced to a year


agriculture waiver.
"Our laws on fireworks
do not seem to serve the
needs of the citizens or
the farmers," Fry said.
"My mom has to sign
a form when we buy
fireworks for personal
use that says she's
actually going to use
them for agricultural use
in the state of Florida,"
he continued. "If we stick
with sparklers, smoke
bombs or glow worms,
she can stay out of the
slammer.... But my
mom knows how much I
love fireworks, she risks
it."
The measure by
Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St.
Petersburg, would allow
anyone at least 16 years
of age to purchase fire-
works and would require



of probation. The House
Ethics Committee has
said it will investigate his
actions.
Radel has said he will
not resign.

Pill mill doctor
gets 5+ years
in prison

FORT LAUDERDALE
(AP) -A South Florida
doctor has been sen-
tenced to more than five
years in federal prison
for his role in a major pill
mill operation that illegal-
ly dispensed oxycodone
and other painkillers.
Court documents show
that 54-year-old Dr. Scott
Becker of Pembroke Pines

in money and property
that represents profits
from his crime. Becker
earlier pleaded guilty to
drug charges and money
laundering.
Prosecutors say Becker

that they are buying the
items for personal use
and that they understand
fireworks are potentially
harmful to structures
and people.
The bill would require
the retailers to have at
least $2 million in lia-
bility coverage and also
allows cities and counties
to establish their own
regulations on the sale of
fireworks.
"If they have concerns,
fine, address that at the
local level," Brandes said.
Brandes called the
existing state law a
"faGade" because there is
no age limit to purchase
fireworks, and retailers are
not required to verify why
individuals claim they are
purchasing the fireworks.



worked at a Dania Beach
pain clinic owned by
Vincent Colangelo, who
ran six illegal pill mills
in Broward and Miami-
Dade counties. Colangelo
pleaded guilty to several
federal charges in April
2012 and is imprisoned.
Court records show
Becker prescribed more
than 930,000 oxycodone
pills while at the clinic,
with 98 percent of his
patients receiving oxyco-
done prescriptions.

"This bill just says let's

preempted, that we
specifically said we don't

purposes."
He noted that when he

he was able to purchase
"mortar" rounds for
$80 and "nobody cares

Brandes added.

After a little while,
Boyer, who is on the
sheriff's missing persons

Turns out, dog owner Jeff
Deane, 22, was in a serious

Deane, a student at
Florida State University,
remains in the ICU in a
hospital, with injuries
to his arm, which was
broken in three places.
He also has a broken rib,
abrasions to his spleen

ship at the Naples Beach

FORT MYERS -There is still a

court advantage throughout the

Instead, Fort Myers showed why

that could be so important.
Green Wave guard Jamal Stewart
scored 12 of his game-high 22
points in a decisive third quarter
as Fort Myers beat Charlotte
69-58 at the Wave Cave. It was
the Tarpons' first loss in District
7A- 11 this season, one that put the
team's chances of earning the top
seed in jeopardy.
"I think home gives us a big


advantage," Fort Myers coach
Scott Guttery said. "We haven't lost
here yet. Obviously we're better
here at home."
Actually, the Green Wave were
better with Stewart in the lane. The
senior took over in the third quar-
ter scoring nine straight points,
largely with knifing drives to the
hoop that Charlotte couldn't stop.
The Green Wave scored 24 points
in the period, going from a four-
point halftime deficit to a 48-38
lead entering the fourth quarter.

* COMMENTARY:



The harsh reality of steroids


By MIKE FITZPATRICK
ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK
here is a wonderful scene
near the end of the movie
"Charlie Wilson's War" in
which Philip Seymour Hoffman
tells Tom Hanks the tale of the Zen
master and the little boy.
Among the lessons in that little
yarn about life's ever-changing
uncertainty is this: Every action
has consequences often un-
intended ones. Sometimes those
consequences don't become clear
until years, decades, even genera-
tions later. But everything leads to
something else.
You can count on it, like Greg
Maddux's pinpoint control.
0
The Steroids Era isn't over.
Not by a long shot.
Some of the annoying after-
effects are just starting to roll
around, infesting the Hall of Fame
ballot and turning quaint, little,
old Cooperstown into baseball's
biggest battleground, a most
imperfect contradiction rather than
'America's Most Perfect Village."


HALL

FROM PAGE 1
the view of many Hall
of Famers that players
whose accomplishments
are muddied by accusa-
tions of steroid use, such
as Barry Bonds and Roger
Clemens, don't belong in
the Hall.
"I've got to take the
right stance, too. No,
they shouldn't get in," he
said. "There shouldn't be
cheating allowed to get
into the Hall of Fame."
The trio will be induct-
ed July 27 along with
managers Bobby Cox, Joe
Torre and Tony La Russa,
elected last month by the
expansion-era commit-
tee. Maddux and Glavine,
who played under Cox
for most of their careers,
will become the first pair
of 300-game winners to
be inducted in the same
year.
"It's exciting for me to
go in with my teammate,"
Maddux said.
The only other time
three players were elected
together in their first
appearances was in 1999
with Nolan Ryan, George
Brett and Robin Yount.
Biggio received 427
votes and 74.8 percent,
matching Nellie Fox in
1985 and Pie Traynor in
1947 for the smallest mar-
gin to just miss. Traynor
made it the following
year, and Fox was elected
by the old Veterans
Committee in 1997.
Biggio, who spent his
entire career with the
Houston Astros, appeared
on 388 ballots last year
in his initial appearance
- when writers failed
to elect anyone and
appears to be on track to
gain election next year.
Mike Piazza was next
with 62.2 percent, up
from 57.8 last year. Jack
Morris was 78 votes short
at 61.5 percent in his 15th
and final appearance on
the writers' ballot, a drop
from 67.7 percent. Morris


And you know what? Accept it.
This is a big part of what PEDs have
wrought.
Consequences. Messy conse-
quences embarrassing to baseball.
The game earned every last one of
them.
So Maddux, Tom Glavine and
Frank Thomas got in Wednesday,
while Craig Biggio barely missed
and Jack Morris fell short in his
final try on the Baseball Writers'
Association of America ballot.
Voters remained mostly split
on sluggers Mike Piazza and Jeff
Bagwell. Barry Bonds and Roger
Clemens not even close.
In reality, these broiling, nev-
er-ending debates were born
decades ago. There's no way Hall
of Fame elections could be neat
and clean once even a handful of
players were dirty.
The hard truth is, there's no sure
way to know which stars compiled
authentic statistics and which
resumes were artificially inflated.
Whether that should even matter at
this point is a reasonable question.
But the integrity of the Hall of
Fame, just like the game itself, was


compromised the moment players
began juicing and nobody did
anything to nip it in the bud.
Blame it on the guys who used
and got rich. Blame it on the clean
ones who kept quiet for too long.
Blame it on the commissioners or
owners who looked the other way
as the money rolled in. Blame it on
the media if you want, for playing
the fool and missing the story until
it was way too late.
Doesn't matter. There's no going
back now.
Players who cheated are going to
wind up in the Hall of Fame.
It may have happened already.
Deserving men will be denied,
due (at least partly) to unfounded
suspicions or overcrowded ballots.
Many think that happened again
Wednesday.
Unfortunately, no unsullied
solution exists. Not anymore.
And anyone who cares about this
sort of thing, from Major League
Baseball headquarters to the Hall
of Fame hopefuls themselves, from
the voters who have a voice to the
die-hard fans who don't, will have
to live with those consequences.

player with the high-
est-percentage of the vote
not in the Hall.
Jeff Bagwell dropped to
54.3 percent from 59.6,
and Tim Raines to 46.1
from 52.2.
Controversy over
how to evaluate stars
tainted by the Steroids
Era continued to impact
the vote totals of players
with stellar statistics. In
their second appearances
on the ballot, Roger
Clemens dropped from
37.6 percent to 35.4, Barry
Bonds from 36.2 to 34.7
and Sammy Sosa from
12.5 to 7.2.
Bonds, baseball's career
home run leader, is the
only seven-time MVP
in major league history.
Clemens is the lone sev-
en-time Cy Young Award
winner.
'As for what they did, I
don't think any of us will
ever really know," Thomas
said. "But I can just tell
you, what I did was real

writers, they definitely got
it right."
Mark McGwire, ap-
pearing for the eighth
time, fell from 16.9 to 11
percent down from
a peak of 25.6 in 2008.
Rafael Palmeiro will be
dropped from future
ballots after falling to 25
votes and 4.4 percent
- below the 5 percent
threshold necessary to
remain eligible. One voter
submitted a blank ballot.
Deadspin.com an-
nounced Miami Herald
columnist Dan Le Batard
had turned his ballot over
to the website, which
allowed readers to vote
on how it should be cast.
"I hate all the moral-
izing we do in sports in
general, but I especially
hate the hypocrisy in
this," Le Batard said
in remarks posted by
Deadspin. "'I always like
a little anarchy inside the
cathedral we've made of

Mattingly returns with 3-year deal


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES -Don
Mattingly will be back
as manager of the Los
Angeles Dodgers next
season with a new
three-year contract that
takes him through 2016,
quieting speculation that
his future with the club
was somehow in doubt.
A person familiar
with the agreement,
said Mattingly is getting
a raise from the $1.4
million he made last year.


By comparison, Yankees
manager Joe Girardi,
entering his seventh
season in New York, is
starting a $16 million,
four-year agreement after
completing a $9 million,
three-year deal.
Mattingly, 260-225
record in his first three
seasons, had sought the
stability of a multiyear
deal after leading the
Dodgers to the 2013 NL
championship series.
He was runner-up for
NL Manager of the Year.

Puig begs a trooper who clocked him
going 110 mph in Florida to let him
go and later chides himself in the back
seat of a police car for driving so fast,
video released by the Florida Highway
Patrol shows. The Cuban defector was
charged with reckless driving in a 70
mph zone in Naples on Dec. 28. Puig,
who lives in the Miami area during the
offseason, told the trooper he wasn't
speeding for most of the 2-hour trip
north until the officer clocked him.
But the officer was unsympathetic and
made an arrest.


Around the league:
Federal prosecutors urged a federal
appellate court to deny Barry Bonds'
request for a rehearing of his attempt
to overturn his obstruction of justice
conviction. ...
The Pittsburgh Pirates will make

Petrino


to coach


L'ville

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
A person familiar with
the situation says Western
Kentucky's Bobby Petrino
has accepted an offer to
return to Louisville as the
Cardinals' football coach.
The person spoke to
The Associated Press on
condition of anonymity
because the university
had not announced its
decision.
The University of
Louisville Athletic
Association, which must
approve the hire, meets
this morning to review
athletic director Tom
Jurich's recommendation
to have Petrino replace
Charlie Strong, who has
accepted the Texas job.
Jonathan Blue, a
Louisville board of trustee,
told AP "if it's a done
deal" he fully supports the
decision.
Petrino, 52, returns to
the school he led to a 41-9
record from 2003-06. He
has an 83-30 record as a
college head coach, but
was fired by Arkansas in
April 2012 amid scandal.

Around the nation: Jameis
Winston won the Manning Award,
given annually to the nation's top
quarterback, two days after he led
Florida State to a 34-31 victory over
Auburn in the BCS championship
game. The Manning Award is the only
annual award that takes a player's
bowl performance into consideration.
That distinguishes it from the Davey
O'Brien Award, also given annually to
the nation's top college quarterback
- which Winston also won along
with the Heisman Trophy....
Michigan fired offensive coordinator
Al Borges following a season in which
the Wolverines struggled to run the
ball and protect their quarterback.
Michigan went 7-6 and finished 86th
in the nation in total offense. The
Wolverines scored 41 points in a win
over Notre Dame and a near-upset
against Ohio State, but their offensive
line looked overmatched in losses to
Michigan State and Nebraska....
Michigan State LB Max Bullough has
an opportunity to make a comeback.
The East-West Shrine Game announced
Bullough has accepted an offer to play
in its event Jan. 18 in St. Petersburg.
The senior was suspended on Dec. 26
for violating team rules and did not
play in the Spartans'24-20 Rose Bowl
victory against Stanford ...
RB George Atkinson III has become
the third Notre Dame player this
offseason to skip his final year of
eligibility and enter the NFL draft ...
Indiana WR Cody Latimer, the fifth
player in school history to top 1,000
yards in a season, has decided to give
up his final year of college eligibility to
enter the NFL draft.

Johnny


Football


goes pro

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Texas A&M quarterback
Johnny Manziel declared
for the NFL draft on
Wednesday following
two spectacular seasons
in which he became the
first freshman to win the
Heisman Trophy and
helped the Aggies make
a splash in their first two
years in the Southeastern
Conference.
'After long discussions
with my family, friends,
teammates, and coaches,
I have decided to make
myself available for the
2014 NFL draft," Manziel
said in a letter posted
online by the university.
Some NFL draft
analysts have Manziel
ranked as high as the
third overall pick.
"In all of my years of
coaching, Johnny Manziel
is the most exciting
football player I have ever
seen," A&M coach Kevin
Sumlin said.
His dynamic play
created a frenzy and
pushed him into a
stratosphere of celebrity
that few college athletes
have reached. That began
to cause problems since
Manziel, who is from
Kerrville, Texas, still had
three years of eligibility
remaining.


JOHNNYMANZIEL
AT A GLANCE
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny
Manziel is entering the NFL draft
after two spectacularseasons.
TOP PLAY: In a victory over
top-ranked Alabama in 2012,
Manziel took a snap, tried to run
but ran into the back of one of
his linemen. He bounced off and
the ball popped into the air. He
caught it, turned around and
rolled out to throw a touchdown
pass to an uncovered receiver in
the end zone.
STAT LINE: Manziel broke 2010
Heisman Trophy winner Cam
Newton's SEC record for total
offense with 5,116 total yards
in 2012, when Manziel became
the first freshman to win the
Heisman. He threw for 4,114
yards this season to break the
school record set in 2011 by
Ryan Tannehill. In 2013, Manziel
threw more touchdown passes,
had more yards passing, a better
completion percentage and aver-
aged more yards an attempt than
he did during his Heisman year.
NFL PROSPECTS: ESPN draft
analyst Mel Kiper lists Manziel
as the 12th-best prospect in this
year's draft and some analysts
rank him the third-best quarter-
back available.

Rival QBs 'two different players


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CHARLOTTE, N.C.-
Cam Newton doesn't like
being compared to Colin
Kaepernick.
"Two different players,"
Newton said.
Yet the Panthers'
third-year quarterback
understands the parallels
with his 49ers counter-
part. They both entered
the NFL in 2011. Both are
big, strong-armed guys
who can shred a second-
ary with their arms and
terrorize a front seven
with their feet.
"Being a big guy, being
fast and being agile and
having the art of throw-
ing like only God has
blessed a few people with
- and Kaepernick has it
(too)," Newton said.
Newton and
Kaepernick go head-to-
head Sunday with a trip


to the NFC champion-
ship game on the line.
It's their second meet-
ing this season.
Carolina beat San
Francisco 10-9 in a
defensive struggle Nov.
10 at Candlestick Park,
a game in which neither
quarterback played
particularly well.
Kaepernick was the
first to get his team to
the Super Bowl, leading
the 49ers there last year
in his first season as a
starter before losing to
the Baltimore Ravens.
Newton started right
away in Carolina, but
was just 13-19 in his first
two seasons.
However, after a 1-3
start the Panthers have
turned things around
winning 11 of their last
12 games to capture the
NFC South and secure a
first-round bye.


Along the way, Newton
threw a career-high
24 touchdown passes
and was selected to
the Pro Bowl ahead of
Kaepernick.
But all of that means
little to Newton.
"I feel as if I haven't
achieved anything worth
mentioning yet," he said.

Interviews for Dolphins
GM to start on Friday:
Miami Dolphins CEO Tom Garfinkel
said talent evaluation will weigh
heavily in the decision when
interviews for a general manager
begin Friday. Jeff Ireland departed
Tuesday after six seasons as GM.
Garfinkel said he'll be involved in the
search already under way, but the
final decision will be made by owner
Stephen Ross. The Dolphins would
have made the playoffs for the first
time since 2008 if they had won one
of their final two games against the
Bufflao Bills and NewYorkJets, but
lost both to finish 8-8.


Around the league: The
San Diego Chargers said center Nick
Hardwick sustained a concussion as
well as a stinger Sunday in the team's
playoff victory over the Cincinnati
Bengals. It's not known whether
Hardwick will be able to play Sunday
at Denver. He must pass certain tests
in order to be cleared to play ...
Indianapolis Colts safety LaRon
Landry was a full participant at
practice and coaches are hopeful
he will play Saturday night at New
England. ...
The Tennessee Titans confirmed
they completed an interview with
Jim Caldwell, the former Colts coach
and current Baltimore Ravens'
offensive coordinator....
Jay Gruden completed his inter-
view for the Washington Redskins'
coaching job, making the Cincinnati
Bengals'offensive coordinator the
sixth known candidate to meet with
general manager Bruce Allen. ...
Denver Broncos LB Von Miller, the
2011 NFL Defensive Rookie of the
Year, is set to have surgery today to
repair his torn right ACL.

ATLANTA -The
Indiana Pacers always
seem to struggle in
Atlanta.
This was no exception.
Kyle Korver scored
17 points, Pero Antic
added 16 and the Hawks
raced to a big lead before
holding off the team with
the NBA's best record,
beating the weary Pacers
97-87 Wednesday night.
The Hawks snapped a
three-game losing streak
and extended Indiana's
misery at Philips Arena,
where the Pacers haven't
won since 2006.
Paul George led Indiana
with 28 points. He didn't
get much help.
The Hawks ended
Indiana's three-game
winning streak, handing
the Pacers just their
second loss in 10 games.
"We want to prove to
everybody that we can
win these type of games,"
said Antic, who scored 12
of his 16 in the first half.

Raptors 112, Pistons 91:
In Toronto, Kyle Lowry had 21 points
and nine assists, Jonas Valanciunas
had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and
the Raptors beat Detroit, the Pistons'
sixth consecutive loss.

Nets 102, Warriors 98:
In NewYork, Joe Johnson scored 27
points in Brooklyn's season-high
fourth straight victory, a win that
snapped Golden State's 10-game
winning streak and prevented the first
7-0 road trip in NBA history.

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) -
Police believe former New
England Patriot Aaron
Hernandez was in an SUV
when someone inside
shot two people to death
in Boston in 2012, accord-
ing to a search warrant
filed in Connecticut.
The warrant does not
indicate who investigators
believe pulled the trigger
or suggest a motive in the
shooting of Daniel Jorge
Correia de Abreu and
Safiro Teixeira Furtado in
Boston's South End. No
charges have been filed
in the case. An attorney
for Hernandez did not
immediately respond to a
message seeking com-
ment Wednesday.
Hernandez came under
scrutiny in the shooting
following his arrest in the
slaying of Odin Lloyd,
a semi-professional
football player whose
body was found June 17
near Hernandez's North
Attleborough, Mass.,
home. Hernandez has
pleaded not guilty to
murder in that case.
In searching a home
of Hernandez's uncle in
Bristol, Conn., in June, po-
lice found the SUV wanted
in the 2012 shooting in
Boston....
The attorney of the woman who
accused Jameis Winston of sexual
assault plans to file a civil lawsuit
against the Florida State quarterback
and the Tallahassee Police Department.
"I want heads to roll/Patricia Carroll,
the accuser's attorney, told ABC News.
Winston was accused of raping a
former female Florida State student in
December 2012. State attorney Willie
Meggs opted not press charges against
Winston in December, stating there
was a lack of evidence to support the
charge and there was not a reasonable
chance of conviction. Carroll said she
will"absolutely"sue TPD, Winston and
possibly the university.

against the 32-year-old Federer, who

Reid honored for 1,000th rebound


Port Charlotte

impresses coach

from Kentucky

By DAWN KLEMISH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
ENGLEWOOD Kayla Reid
isn't the tallest forward Lemon
Bay High School has ever seen,
nor does she have the biggest
vertical leap. But what the
senior forward lacks in stature
she makes up for with a knack
for knowing just what to do and


when it needs to be done.
Reid was honored at Lemon
Bay on Tuesday night during
a pre-game ceremony for
collecting her 1,000th rebound,
placing her in a class of just a
handful of predecessors who
have done the same.
Manta Rays coach Mike
Young said Reid is a career
workhorse who is also closing
in on her 1,000th point.
"One big thing about Kayla
is that she's always playing
hard," he added. "If shots aren't
going in, Kayla's playing hard.
If we're having trouble moving


(the ball), Kayla's playing hard.
Kayla's going after the ball."
Reid notched No. 1,000
against Cardinal Mooney
during the Smoothie King
Tournament in Bradenton on
Dec. 28.

Queens of the court: Port Charlotte
battled teams from around the country during
the elite Queen of Palms tournament held in
Cape Coral over the holiday break. The Pirates
lost the Dec. 27 opener to Calloway County of
Kentucky, but left Lakers coach Eddie Morris
with a lasting impression.
"They have a couple of really nice players
with (Taylor Lindsey and Courtney Robertson),"


he said. "When you do such a good job of
finding them where they are on the court and
the two of them can take care of the ball like
they do, it caused some problems for us and,
no doubt, a bunch of other teams too'."
Lindsey, a senior guard, led all scorers with
21 in the loss, and Robertson, a senior forward,
added 15 points.

A grand re-return: Camille Frederick
wore braces on both knees against Lemon
Bay on Tuesday, but still managed to score 3
points in limited court time in a win against
the Manta Rays. The North Port senior forward
missed the first half of the season after knee
surgery, then another month after injuring her
other knee in her first week back on the court.


DON'T MISS THESE
GAMES
Friday brings a slew of good matchups,
starting at 7 p.m. when two hard-nosed
defensive teams face off as Venice travels
to Port Charlotte at 7 p.m. ... At 7:30
p.m., Lemon Bay travels to Sebring. If
the Manta Rays win, they earn the right
to host the first round of districts. If not,
they'll be on the road. ... Hardee visits
DeSoto County at 7:30 p.m. for a game
between two long-time rivals....
At 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Lemon Bay
hosts an opportunity to avenge a X-point
loss against Venice earlier this season.

five years ago, and with
Flenard almost as long.
Towers joined Kemble's
youth club, where he
met Cruz. Already with
years of experience from
his time in Michigan, he
said he helped mold Cruz
into what he is today a
132-pounder who beat
Charlotte's Sam Spence by
a 15-0 technical fall.
When Flenard came
along a few months later,
Towers helped bring him
along as well. Flenard
only has one loss on the
season, but he sat out of
Wednesday's dual to rest.
"We're childhood
friends hitting the (weight)
room together and we're
just all getting better,"
Towers said.
While their careers are
blossoming, some Bobcat
careers are nearing a
close. North Port recog-
nized seniors Chris Fritz,
Alejandro Torres, Josh
Pattersonn, Josh Pollard,
Marcus Kirkland and Jake
Bennett before the meet.
All of the seniors won
except for Fritz, who lost
to Brody Mansfield 5-1.
Charlotte got pins from
Ethan Tenney and Bucky
Dennis, who looked like
he was ready to go skiing
after having tape wrapped
around his head to control
bleeding out of the side
of his face. Dylan Mooney
also had a major decision
and Trey Hoff won by
Flenard's forfeit.
"Good dual meet,"
Charlotte coach Evan
Robinson said. "We got
some wins here and there
and that's what we came to
do. We want good compe-
tition, and here we are."

Lowe has been a mem-
ber of the weightlifting
team for four years, but
she just recently started
to believe she could break
the school record.
"My first two years, I
just tried to beat myself
every time I went out,"
Lowe said. "It just started
to be realistic that I could
beat that about halfway
through this season."
Lowe said that strength-
ening her core has helped
her increase the weights
she can lift, something
that the whole Pirates
team has benefitted from.
Lowe is one of 14 Port
Charlotte lifters to qualify
for the District 8 meet on
Jan. 22 by placing in the
top three of a weight class
on Wednesday.
"We've been really work-
ing hard to do some core
things with them," Port
Charlotte coach Sonia Tirb
said. "We've been switch-
ing things up because
we've had a bunch of girls


with sore backs and stuff
like that from lifting such
high amounts."
Tirb said that core
strength was key for six
other Pirates who also set
personal bests. All of those
weightlifters qualified for
the district meet except for
Nasiel Cardenty, who fin-
ished tied for third but lost
the tiebreaker to Charlotte
freshman Breanna Jacobs.
Jacobs was one of 12
Tarpons to qualify for the
district meet.
"We knew there were
gonna be some tight
places, and that's just the
way it goes when you have
two really good teams
like a Port Charlotte and
Charlotte," Charlotte
coach Angle Nolan said.
"We knew if we've got two
good ones and they've
got two good ones (in a
weight class), then some-
one's going home."
Lemon Bay placed three
lifters into the district
meet, including two


TARPONS
FROM PAGE 1
Not that it was a
surprise to Tarpons coach
Tom Massolio.
"We talked about that
at halftime," Massolio
said. "They wanted to
attack the basket, but we
didn't stop them from
getting there. That's why
they scored 24 points in
that quarter. If you let a
high school team score 24
points in a quarter, you're
not going to have a good
success ratio."
The space for Stewart
came from Charlotte's box-
and-one defense set up
to stop the GreenWave's
Mark Matthews. The junior
guard still scored 20 points.
Adrian Ivankovic led
Charlotte with 16 points,
recovering from a 1-for-7
first half. Dwight Reynolds
had 11 points and seven
rebounds for the Tarpons
(9-7, 3-1 in District 7A-11).
Another issue for
Charlotte was that the
Green Wave took ex-
cellent care of the ball,
committing just two
turnovers in the third
quarter to take control.
The Tarpons led after a
somewhat disjointed first
half, hitting enough shots
to hold off Fort Myers (8-
7, 3-1), including two key
baskets in the paint by
Nick Montoya. But they
couldn't keep it up
The deadlock atop the
district standings could
potentially lead to an
important coin flip for
the postseason home
court edge in District 7A-
11 the league plays its
tournament at home sites
instead of a central host.
But Massolio wasn't
worried about that yet.
"We've just got to worry
about getting better," he
said.

SCome on down!

This weekend, WaterLine will host our first tournament,
the"Feed the Hungry" Trout Scramble. We've been planning
^it for a few months, and hopefully we've thought of every-
Ithing. Hopefully. This is a family-friendly event with a low
entry fee, and registration is still open (go to TroutScramble.
com for all the details).
If you don't want to enter the tournament, that's OK-
0,V, ',come on down anyway. The party's open for everyone. We'll
-' ,.- have the band playing and an assortment of vendors with lots
A of interesting wares. We also have hundreds of dollars' worth
Iof raffle prizes that we'll be giving away. Since the whole
point is to stock the shelves at The Salvation Army, we're
trading raffle tickets for nonperishable food goods instead of
N selling them. So far, the weather forecast looks pretty good,
and we're going to be keeping our fingers crossed.
The party will get started right around noon at the
Fishery Restaurant (13000 Fishery Road, Placida). Admission
is free and so is parking. The Fishery will be serving up a
mouth-watering pig roast for just $8 a plate, with $1 draft
beers or bottled water to keep you from getting parched.
We're going to have some fun, and we're going to do some
good. We hope you'll be a part of it. Oh, and if you try to
da talk to me and I just keep going, I'm not ignoring you I'm
just in crisis mode. The truth is, there's no way to think of
everything. I'll just hope for the best.

WaterLine file photo


Tell me if this has ever happened to you:
You plan a fishing trip for a couple weeks out.
You invite a couple buddies. Everyone puts
in the extra effort to get his "honey-do" list
taken care of so he can fish while maintaining
domestic tranquility. You plan, you get excited,
you stock up on beverages and snacks for the
cooler. Then the day finally arrives and with
it, cold and windy weather.
What do you do? You could call it off and try
to reschedule, but that's no fun. You could man
up and stick to the plan. But you'll probably
have a wet, chilly ride to your spot, and many
fish aren't known to bite particularly well in
post-frontal conditions.
Neither of those options is ideal, so I have
another suggestion: Take cover in the canals.
Charlotte Harbor is surrounded by canals. Lots
and lots of canals -190 miles of saltwater
canals in Charlotte County, plus another 222 in
Cape Coral. And in all that space, there are lots
and lots of places in these manmade water-
ways where you can hide out from the wind
and have a more enjoyable day of fishing.
Not every one of those miles is created equal.
You'll usually find more variety closer to the canal
mouths, where the narrow waterway meets
the open Harbor. Some fish, such as trout and
whiting, don't like to move far into the canals
because they become part of the food chain.
Others Spanish macks, cobia and sharks -
don't like confined quarters. These fish are much
more likely to be found near open water than
miles back into the canal systems. Snook and
tarpon are often found well up into the canals,
sometimes even into areas of fresh water.


Certain canals seem to hold more of a
particular species. For example, Spring Lake
in Port Charlotte is known for juvenile tarpon.
Jacks and big black drum are frequently caught
in the Colony Point canal in Punta Gorda. Every
canal has its own mix. Challenge yourself to
learn which fish can be found in which canals. If
you get really good at this, you can call the fish
you're going to catch (this will drive your buddies
crazy, and isn't that what it's all about?).
Deepwater canals, like those in Punta Gorda
Isles, tend to be more consistent and will have
good fishing year-round. The water tempera-
ture is more stable, and fish use these areas as
refuges in both cold and hot weather. These
deeper canals also usually hold bigger snook,
tarpon and Goliath grouper. In the shallower
canals, you can expect to find larger fish if you
focus on areas adjacent to deeper areas.
Most fish in canals tend to hold around struc-
ture. Focus on docks and mangroves. Some boats
that have been floating in the same spot for a
long time have so many oysters and barnacles
growing on them, they're practically artificial
reefs. Even if there is no obvious structure, the
best fishing is almost always along the edges.
Finding the best areas to fish can be tough.
One great way around that problem is to
put out a line and troll a lipped plug (I like
the Rapala X-Raps for this), spoon or soft
plastic bait on a jighead. Canal trolling is
way underutilized even if you intend to
fish the Harbor, you should still troll on the
way in and out. Trolling will help you locate
those key spots that are more productive than
others, Every canal has areas that hold more


fish because of currents, depths, structure
or whatever. Trolling lets you find them with
relative ease. If you pick up one or two fish in a
particular spot, drift or anchor and see if there
are any more around.
Even in the canals, the rules of winter
fishing still apply: Don't fish at first light; give
the water a chance to warm up a few degrees.
Use smaller baits, and fish them more slowly.
Generally, fishing with natural bait is more
productive, except when you're trolling. If you
really love throwing lures, they'll work, but
you'll catch more species and more total fish
with natural baits. Shrimp is the bait of choice,
and is excellent for locating fish of virtually
any species. You can use cut ladyfish, mullet or
sardines, but you'll limit yourself to the species
that feed on cutbait.
Canal fishing will often turn up some
unexpected fish you rarely find on the flats
- toadfish, sand bream, spadefish, Atlantic
croaker and a few others. Granted, none of
these have the cachet of tarpon or monster
snook, but they're interesting catches none-
theless. However, you'll also find plenty of
catfish and stingrays. Avoiding them is one of
the main reasons to focus on fishing along the
edges kitties and rays tend to be found on
the bottom and in the middle. If you're fishing
the edges and still catching mostly catfish, you
may have just found the Whisker Waterway -
pack up and move to another spot.
One of the downsides of canal fishing is
that you're usually in someone's backyard. You
may even find that some of the homeowners
have blocked off the areas under their docks


to prevent anglers from effectively fishing
there. It's hard to blame them wouldn't
you get annoyed if someone kept hooking your
dock, breaking the lines off and leaving them?
The best advice here is to be respectful and
try to avoid being part of the problem. Don't
bounce jigheads off a boat's hull. Don't leave
line or hooks behind. Don't tie up to their dock
without permission. You have the right to use
the water, but they have the right to protect
their property. You'll also find that some of the
homeowners are very friendly and helpful. Not
doing dumb stuff will keep them that way.
On some canals, you may also find boat
traffic to be a problem. This is one more reason
to stick to the edges the boats usually go
down the middle. If your boat has very little
freeboard, pay attention to larger vessels
that may throw enough wake to swamp you.
However, you may be pleasantly surprised to
see that many canals actually have fewer boats
running around than there are on the flats.
Fishing in the canals may not be as pres-
tigious as casting to tailing redfish on the
flats, or as picturesque as being out on the
mangrove shorelines. But it can certainly be
a productive way to fish, and there are some
days when it can save your fishing trip from
getting washed out. I don't know about you,
but in my book, that's far from a bad thing.

Sheepshead school around Southwest
Florida piers in fishable numbers all winter.
Besides being a fun and challenging fish
to catch, they are a favorite target of many
anglers for another reason: Dinner.
And from classic fillets to sashimi, sheeps-
head doesn't disappoint on the table.
Sheepshead cooks up nice and flaky white,
and is very tasty and mild as fish go, making
fillets a highly sought-after commodity. In
other words, it's not a "fishy" tasting fish. For
me personally, it ranks right up there with
pompano and snook, and it's much easier to
catch keeper sheepshead.
So you've caught a keeper now what? I
always gut my fish immediately and put them
on ice. I prefer this method to leaving them
alive on a stringer, but there's nothing wrong
with that either. Maybe you're wondering how
many sheepshead it takes to make dinner, and
that depends on how many people you are
feeding.
Let's say you and your significant other want
enough fish for dinner. That would require at
least two fish in the 12- to 15-inch range, and
maybe one more depending on how hungry
you are and what side dishes you're serving.
But if you're handy with a fillet knife, one fish
per person should do the trick.
If the fish are on the small side, like the
minimum legal size of 12 inches, you have the
option to scale them and cook them whole.
It's less work than filleting, but the scales will
be flying. Do this outside or your wife might
knock you upside the head with a frying pan
for messing up her kitchen.
Once the fish is scaled, remove the gills,
score the flesh with your fillet knife and season
it to your liking;- for example, salt, pepper
and garlic powder, or a touch of Old Bay
seasoning. You can also throw some minced
onion, green pepper and fresh garlic into the
pan for more flavor. Baking whole sheepshead
is also an option.
Filleting sheepshead requires some elbow
grease, but it's totally worth it. Since it's a bit
of a complex operation I'll explain it separately
below. My go-to sheepshead recipe is what I
call "classic"fillets. After patting the fillets dry
with a paper towel, I season them with a little
lemon or lime pepper and a liberal amount of
Old Bay. Coat them with flour, drop them into
a frying pan with hot oil and cook for about
90 seconds on each side. When they're done,
top them with a little lime juice and soy sauce.
Another thing I like to do is eat sheepshead
sashimi. That's right, raw fish. If you like
sushi, I encourage you to try this. I've done
it numerous times and there's no more risk

involved than eating at a sushi bar.
There is a little chunk of meat that's always
left over after you fillet right above the fish's
eye. It's impossible to remove it as part of the
fillet, but if you make a separate cut you're left
with a nice little nugget of sheepshead. Take
your fillet knife and slice the chunks into very
thin pieces. You can also pick some thin strips
off the carcass if you didn't quite get all the
flesh while filleting. Top the pieces, or sashimi,
with a little lime juice and a drop or two of
Sriracha and soy sauce. Wash it down with an
ice-cold beer and repeat as necessary.
Going the fillet route is a little more work,
but once you get the hang of it it's pretty
easy. Sheepshead have a protruding ribcage
you have to work around, and it takes a little
practice to get all the meat off the fish. I call
my technique "finessing" sheepshead instead
of filleting them, because I don't really use
the standard fillet technique until the fillets
are separated from the fish and ready to have
the skin removed. To try this method, start by
inserting the knife through the ridge at the
beginning of the dorsal spines. Once it's in, run
it shallow (about 1.5 inches deep) at an inward
angle to the base of the tail, push it through to
the other side and run the blade out through
the tail. After clearing away scales to make for
an easier cut, take your knife and run it from
the initial cut down behind the gills and to the
belly.


Now comes the finesse part. Using only the
tip of your knife, start "picking" the flesh away
from the carcass. Start at the top and work
toward the tail using short, precise strokes.
When you start hitting the ribcage, run the
knife at a 45-degree angle over it, separating
the flesh until the ribcage is fully exposed.
Then take your knife and cut through the skin
and past the ribcage so you don't pick up any
bones. Finish by cutting around the smaller
bones at the back of the ribcage, then through

the flesh left at the tail to remove the fillet.
Flip the fish and repeat, but this time you'll
have to start from the tail (unless you're ambi-
dextrous with a fillet knife).
Until next time, hook'em up and fight 'em
hard. Fish on, fellow anglers.

The question of revolver versus semi-auto-
matic has been asked ever since the inception
of the semi-automatic handgun, more than a
century ago. Taking a look back, our military
was quick to change from the revolver to
the semi-automatic. This changed occurred
just after World War I. However, when I was
in the military, a few of the"old guys" were
still holding out and carrying their old .357
Magnums while the rest of us were carrying
either a Colt 1911 or Sig Sauer.
It was not until the late 20th Century
revolvers really began giving way to semi-au-
tomatic handguns. Most agencies did not trust
the semi-autos in the line of duty because
of failures to feed and jams. Some manu-
facturers did in fact have issues with their
handguns and quickly resolved the issues
with engineering changes. The reality was
that most law-enforcement agencies did not
have the training in place to transition officers
from revolvers to semi-automatics. Training is
expensive, and a lot of the law-enforcement
agencies could not absorb those costs. In fact,
most law-enforcement agencies required each
officer to purchase his own gun and it had


to be a revolver!
Let's look at the pros and cons of each. In
many ways, the strength of one platform is the
weakness of the other.
In the last 15 to 25 years, we have seen
almost every law-enforcement agency using
revolvers switch to semi-automatic handguns.
Some of the benefits of the semi-automatic
handgun are faster firing rates, easier
reloading and, in most cases, higher magazine
capacity. Law-enforcement agencies train to
clear their guns and get them working again
under stressful situations. Many training acad-
emies make students deal with an intentional
jam, learning how to clear it and continue
to assess the threat. That all being said, a lot
of law-enforcement agencies (Tampa Police
Department being one that comes to mind)
require their officers to carry a revolver for
a backup weapon, simply because it always
works in a very stressful situation.
If you are carrying in Southwest Florida,
your gun has to accommodate hot and humid
conditions. There are a million ways to carry
a gun on your person, though most carry in
the waist or on a belt. Either way, your body


oils and sweat, which are corrosive to most
metals, are likely to reach the gun. We sell a lot
of different guns, but I want to key in on two
great choices (in my opinion) that fit the bill
here in Southwest Florida.
The first gun I would like to highlight is
the Diamondback DB9 or DB380. This gun has
a polymer frame, a coated steel slide and a
reduced recoil system. The DB9 features a FEA
(Finite Element Analysis) designed slide and
barrel that is stronger than any comparable
firearm in its class. The gun disassembles
almost identically to the Glock for easy
servicing. The slide, barrel and internal parts
are coated to resist corrosion when properly
cleaned. This allows the gun to be carried in all
types of weather conditions and withstand the
elements (including your body oils and sweat).
A DB9 will run about $400 and has a lifetime
warranty. Also, this gun is made locally in
Florida, so it's a win-win for our economy.
The second gun one of my favorites,
simply because it is light and made to perform
under any condition is the Taurus Poly 605
revolver chambered in .357 Magnum. This
revolver has a polymer frame body and a matte


stainless cylinder. The beauty of this revolver
is it gives you the awesome power of a .357,
or you can tame it down at the range with .38
Special loads. This revolver holds five shots and
weighs only 19.75 ounces. It shoots single or
double action with a fairly easy trigger pull.
It also incorporates the Taurus Safety Lock
System, which is great for security and safety
of the gun. The 605 is priced at roughly S470
and also has a lifetime warranty. It's not made
here, but Taurus is based in Miami.
Even taking the auto advantages into
consideration, there are reasons why the
revolver not only hasn't disappeared but
remains a strong seller particularly in the
personal defense-oriented small handgun
market. It's reliable and packs a punch. It's
likely the autoloader will never totally replace
the revolver. Which one you choose to carry is
up to you.

Well, winter finally decided to put in an
appearance in Southwest Florida. Cold air
quickly leads to cold water, and cold water
means cold fish. An Arctic blast will put a
temporary lid on the fishing action (a lot of
it, anyway) but once the temperature warms
back up a bit -and it always does! the
bite should turn back on. But cold fronts seem
to remind fish that it really is winter, and they
should be acting like it is. They still have to
eat, but they do change their feeding patterns
a bit. To catch them, you need to change your
pattern as well. When fish get cold, their
metabolisms slow down -way down. They
don't feel the urge to feed as strongly, so they
usually aren't willing to run down a meal.
You need to slow your presentation down to
a speed they're comfortable with. When you
think you're going slow enough, slow it down
by half. If you're still not getting bites, cut your


speed in half again. It can be almost painful
to work a lure this slowly, but the reward is
catching fish instead of just practicing your
retrieve. With their digestion slowed, fish are
looking for smaller meals. A mouthful is all
they want, so baits in the 2- to 4-inch range
are ideal. Trust me, big fish will still pound
those smaller baits. Fish will gravitate toward
areas that warm up quickly, so seek out places
with dark bottom. When it's still chilly and
overcast, fish will often take refuge in deeper
water, which holds heat longer. When the sun
is back out and we're starting to warm back
up, temperatures rise faster in shallow water,
so the flats are a good place to look. It's not
too uncommon to find big trout basking in
water just deep enough to cover their backs. If
it gets to be too much figuring out where your
target fish have gone, don't stress just go
to the docks and catch sheepshead.

We planned to do our final 2013 survey for
Wildflower Preserve on the last Sunday of
December. However, a rainstorm hit the area
and we wound up doing the next best thing
- eating. We went out to a leisurely Sunday
morning breakfast instead of birding, where
we all decided to reschedule the survey for the
next morning, and we were not disappointed.
It was a beautiful sunny Florida morning
with a nice breeze. Don Rippeon and I met our
survey partners, Tom and Gayle Duch, at the
parking lot of Wildflower. We bumped into a
birding friend, Ellie, who was volunteering and
working in the butterfly garden at Wildflower.
Minutes later, we started our hike, and
immediately we were listening to many
different bird calls and began to identify them.
Palm warblers, cardinals, black and white
warblers and blue gray gnatcatchers all
were in a small radius at the entrance to the
blue trail. A male indigo bunting whipped
into a mass of vines high up in an oak tree.
Red-bellied woodpeckers were heard and seen
along the trail for the next two hours. As we
proceeded, we noticed a huge flock of birds
settling into the treetops a short distance
down the trail. Raising our binoculars, we
identified a flock of robins, and much to my
delight, a flock of cedar waxwings. In addi-
tion, Tom sighted titmouse, a small songbird
in the tit and chickadee family. They have a
unique call. The profile silhouette of the cedar
waxwings stands out with a pointed head. It is
a very handsome bird, and yes, the feathers do
look like wax.
We continued down the blue trail and opted
for the longer hike this day, as the weather
was so perfect and we heard so much birdsong.
The first pond we came to was very quiet, and
we all commented about the lack of waders.
However, we did sight some good birds flying
overhead. A small group of wood storks were
flying over our heads in addition to the white
ibis we had seen earlier. We continued down
the trail, avoiding the pits dug out by the wild
pigs. Because of the rain the previous day, it
was a bit muddy, but we did not care. We were
in our element.
Tom and I both heard a flute-like call at the
same time and knew it was the song of the
wood thrush. This is one of my favorite bird
songs. It definitely sounds like beautiful flute
music. The wood thrush is an amazing little

bird. It migrates many, many miles to Central
America and to Costa Rica during the cold
winter weather much like our northern
friends migrate to Florida this time of year.
We continued hiking along the blue trail,
and the next big pond brought us a few
moorhen and a green heron. The heron was
so still and blended right into the grasses we
almost missed seeing it. An eastern phoebe
appeared on a stalk of reed and sat and sang
for a minute, flicking its tail and then left in a
flash.
Much to our delight, the next pond had
some duck activity. We sighted three blue-
winged teal. The volunteers at Wildflower
created several floating islands, and they
were fully grown with vegetation. Water fowl
seemed to like this floating island addition to
the pond.
As we walked the area, we checked the
bluebird boxes to see if there was any interest
of using them for nesting. The only inhabitants
were tree frogs.
We finally reached the bird feeder area. We
added mourning doves and a Carolina wren
to our checklist. There was even an anhinga
sitting on a branch over the water, drying out
its wings. There were myrtle warblers and
palm warblers in what I refer to as the magic
tree, which always seems to have birds flitting
through the branches.


We continued the hike and finally returned
to the parking lot and drove to Amberjack,
where Lemon Lake is located. Sometimes
you can go to Lemon Lake and see absolutely
nothing, and sometimes you get lucky and
can see some nice waders. Fortunately, Tom
had his birding scope, which always makes it
easier to identify birds on the opposite side of
the lake. As we walked down the boardwalk
to the viewing platform, a young blue heron
was standing on the railing, waiting to greet
us. Little blue heron are white on the first year.
Many people get confused and think they are
egrets. And there were plenty of great egrets,
snowy egrets, tri-color heron, white pelicans,
blue- and green-winged teal and a small flock
of the magnificent pink roseate spoonbills. As


we looked at each of the birds, we heard in
the distance the call of the belted kingfisher.
By this time, I was ready for coffee after my
usual coffee less exit from the house. So off we
all went to our second day of breakfast out,
and to discuss our last birding trip of the 2013,
which we all thought was pretty darn good!
We sighted or heard 47 species.
Good birding to all in 2014!

Welcome to winter in Charlotte Harbor,
where shallow water is such a fact of life that
there's an old saying that goes something
like this: "There are three types of Char-
lotte Harbor boaters; those who have been
aground, those who will go aground, and
those who are aground right now while we're
talking about it."
Charlotte Harbor is normally a pretty
shallow place, but the combination of north-
easterly winds, cold water, high barometric
pressure and low winter tides that we've expe-
rienced in recent weeks has produced periods
of substantially shallower-than-normal water.
One result of the low water is that more than
a few skippers have run aground in areas
where they'd normally be able to safely
navigate, resulting in busy towboats. While
listening to the many calls for assistance on
the marine radio, I was reminded of an old
piece I'd written about going aground and
thought it might be time for an update.

The holidays are exhausting for the best
of us: Decorating, shopping, wrapping,
gift-giving, cooking, eating, drinking, eating
again, pretending to enjoy the company of
relatives, drinking some more. It can leave a
sane person in need of a straightjacket. For
those of us who can't legitimately fill in the
"sane" bubble on the Scantron to begin with,
the holidays can be particularly harrowing.
Some of the patients we see here at Peace
River Wildlife Center are finding themselves
in some sticky situations lately also.
On New Year's Eve, a gentleman brought
in a patient he found while taking down his
Christmas decorations. We didn't ask for the
specifics on his decoration scheme, but he
found a snake almost completely enshrouded
in shipping tape at the top of a palm tree. I've
seen the fake icicles our northern transplants
hang from their eves to simulate their icy
Christmases past. I've seen people who string
lights on palm trees for a tropical alternative
to the lighted evergreens. This year in partic-
ular I've seen plenty of ornaments that look
like various wildlife creatures. But I'm going
to have to take stand on this trend. Taping
an actual snake to your palm tree, while
admittedly festive, is going a tad too far.
Kudos to the gentleman for not just tossing
the struggling snake into the garbage as so
many people would have done. Or worse yet
- chopping off his head with a shovel, which
for some reason seems to be the method of
choice for dealing with all serpents.
This particular snake is a juvenile red
rat snake, also known as a corn snake. The
rat snake is quite prevalent in this area of
Southwest Florida. It is an efficient tree climber
and an effective rodent eliminator. It is quite
docile, and captive-bred individuals make
wonderful pets. Never take any animal from
the wild to try to keep as a pet. The passive
nature of this snake makes it a good one to
have around the house and garden. It will keep
the rat and mouse population in check, but will
not be aggressive to people encountering it.
This unlucky little guy was probably
attracted to the warmth of the Christmas
lights strung in the palm tree. As he tried to
huddle closer to the warmth, he got entan-
gled in the tape. We do not know if the tape
was used to adhere the lights to the tree, but

I would have to caution against this practice.
Plastic clips or (our favorite all-purpose tool)
zip ties might be a better choice to attach
decorations outdoors to keep pets and wild-
life from being injured.
Upon admission, the rat snake had two
smaller pieces of tape stuck to his belly near
his tail. The entire front half of the snake
was completely wrapped in tape except for a
small opening in front of his face that allowed
him to breathe. We massaged mineral oil
onto his skin and slowly worked it under the
tape until we could pull it off without injuring
the snake's delicate skin. He was remarkably
patient with us as we worked to free him.
After a 24-hour period of observation, the
snake was released, none the worse for his
Christmas adventure. How many of us can
claim that quick a recovery from our holiday
shenanigans?

Setting examples starts at home, and
the very best way is to start out with kids.
Set good examples so they learn how to
treat our fish and other natural resources.
Here's the secret let them have fun.
It's that simple. They'll never forget you
or their positive experiences together out
on our waters.
I get to introduce many youngsters
to our beautiful waters and fishing. It's
actually a blessing that I get to share and
show them why our area is so special.
We're blessed with pristine waters in
and around Charlotte Harbor. Our entire
area is unique because we have so much
natural habitat to explore and enjoy. Just
look at how many miles of mangrove
covered shorelines we have to explore
and enjoy.
Also, times have changed since I was
a kid. Parents don't always have the
resources to take their kids fishing, so
help pick up the slack if you are able. If
you know anybody that might be willing
to share their fishing time and experi-
ence, see if you can help bring them a
kid or two to take fishing. Let's look for
opportunities to introduce as many local
children to fishing as we can. It's great
to see folks taking advantage of Cedar
Point Park, introducing kids to the grass
flats. The Charlotte Harbor Environmental
Center is another terrific place to take a
kid. Whatever the situation, get involved
and try to make good things happen.
You just might make a new friend or two
- and help a child learn about fishing
instead of mischief. Most of us are glad to
share our time and experience, and now
is a great time to do so.
All of us had help getting introduced to
fishing, and I know we all want to share
our love of fishing. As my gone but not
forgotten friend Mr. Bill Mote used to say,
"give back:'" It feels excellent to give.
If you're asked to take some kids out,
please remember they are beginners and
need instruction. Keep it simple, but fun.
What you catch isn't important. Having
fun is! Catfish, pinfish and ladyfish are all
fine. Stop and observe the birds, dolphins
and manatees. You're not in a rush, and


show them why we love and protect our
waterways. Save gas and idle most of
the time. Help them learn that life isn't
always about instant gratification we
need to have patience and can't take
special times for granted. If you work to
earn it, you just might appreciate it a lot
more.
And while you're at it, take your kids to
the WaterLine Trout Scramble on Jan. 11
at the Fishery Restaurant in Placida. It's
a great opportunity to share fish stories
and get to know others that share your
passion. I'm looking forward to a fun
family event.
This can be a tough time for area
fishing. It's not that our fishing is bad
now, it's that we can be so spoiled. Trout
and redfish are here and hungry. I'm sure
you'll see some dandies at the Scramble
this weekend. I'm not big on dead fish
events, but this should be a fun family
time to enjoy our trout fishing. Redfish
are abundant, but are targeted by many
anglers. You can soak natural baits or
stalk them with lures. This is the time
to test your skills if you fly fish and chal-
lenge redfish. Our fly fishing guru, Lefty
K, agrees with me. They are as crafty as
any bonefish! Just remember that success
is a fun day on the water. It's all about
learning more about our fishing, not
what you caught. Sheepshead are just
getting cranked up and will continue to
get better until Spring. Yes, sheepies are
crafty and require your keen awareness.
But they are tasty treats if you learn how
to catch them. We've been enjoying some
pompano action and it should last a little
bit if it doesn't get too cold this week.
We'll see what happens.
It's been wonderful to enjoy such good
weather and fishing with wonderful folks
over the holidays. I'm excited about all
the possibilities for the new year.

Do me a



favor: Don't



get towed


I've been around boats for a good
chunk of my life. I don't have a problem
saying that I know my way around
boat engines. It's just what I know.
Some people know about numbers and
accounting. I know about boats.
I've seen many crazy things during
my years at Ingman Marine. Some worse
than others. But when it comes down to
it, many things can be prevented. Take
care of your boat, and your boat will take
care of you. At least most of the time.
Let's face it, sometimes things happen.
But as the old saying goes, it's better to
prevent than having to cure.
With that said, I'd like to talk about a
few pet peeves I have when it comes to
boat maintenance. They are in no partic-
ular order, just some random thoughts
going through my mind you should
probably get used to that.
If your boat has been sitting in storage
for a while, and you are itching to take it
out, do me a favor and simply check the
battery. Better yet, check the fluid levels
of your battery. Pop the cap off and
really take a good look. You need to test
your battery before your get out on the
water. I can't tell you how many times
I see people get towed just because of
a simple mistake of not checking their
batteries. It used to be funny. Now it just
gets me angry.
Another thing you need to do before


taking your boat out on the water is
check your fuel. Most people think that
fuel stays the same, even after months
of storage. Not the case. Many things can
happen. Octane loss during storage could
be great enough to damage an engine
when it's time to run. Check your octane
levels. Another thing is water conden-
sation. Think of it as this: you sweat in
the summer. So too does your gas tank.
Water in the gas tank isn't good. Water
doesn't burn. And always use non-ethanol
gasoline. Don't be a cheapskate.
And water separators need to be
changed every six months. They just do.
If oxygen slips in, your using fuel for no
reason. The gas doesn't flow properly.
Your filters can also rust out. Just do
me a favor and replace those separators
every six months.
And last but not least on this week's
pet peeve list is corrosion in your elec-
trics. This isn't fresh water down here.
We have a lot of salt, and salt corrodes.
In salt water, nothing is bulletproof.
Check you wiring. I really don't want to
see any more boats being towed in.
Jared Brimer is general manager of
boat maintenance at Ingman Marine's
facility located in Placida. He has been
around boats and engines for two
decades and has seen just about every-
thing. Just ask him. You can contact him

Stand-up paddleboard fishing is always
an adventure on the water. The first few
times I went I took my board inshore.
Paddleboarding is definitely more
difficult when adding extra gear to your
board and moving around. It took a few
SUP fishing trips before I was used to the
feel of reeling in fish, and felt more coor-
dinated with my fishing gear. Once I had
the hang of it, I wanted something more
extreme so I decided to go out into the
Gulf. Following one golden rule of trying
a new paddling adventure on the water, I
took a paddleboard friend along.
Gearing up for this event was an
interesting experience in itself. This was
the first time taking gear into the Gulf.
Carrying rods, paddle, bait bucket, and
anchor in one hand and my board in the
other was a challenge. I didn't exactly
pick a calm day. There was a slight west
wind, and decent breakers in the gulf.
Since I had a friend with me, the trip to
the end of the pass went by very quickly.
As we were chatting and paddling I
completely forgot that there were waves
around. At one point of the pass, the
waves break closer to shore. I was so
distracted that I did not prepare myself
for the 5-foot wave coming my direction.
That was my first fall of this trip! Losing
most of my gear in the water helped me
to realize that strapping equipment to
the board and under the bungees is best
in the Gulf.
While traveling south to the end of
Stump Pass Beach, a 6-foot long tarpon
swam under my board. Shortly after
a very large eagle ray appeared. I was
very surprised by its extremely long tail,
which reached almost the total length
of my 12-foot board. At the end of the

pass, there are a few uprooted Australian '_

commonly spotted in that area. -- -- -

from flying over the board when a giant

I learned two tips with this incident
the hard way. First, SUP fishing requires
two leashes, one for the anchor and
another to stay attached to the paddle-
board. Secondly, try to keep things
simple. Keeping less gear on your board
will prevent any possible injury when
falling. My friend had quite a laugh
watching me fly over my paddleboard
and coming up with the fishing pole in
hand.
The marine life was very active during
this fishing trip. Manatees and dolphins
continually approached our paddle-
boards. On our paddle back north to our
launch, a pod of dolphins were surfing
the waves in the distance. Even though
I did not bring home a snook during this
fishing trip, there were lots of memories
made during my first SUP fishing experi-
ence in the Gulf.

SAFEST BOATING STATE? NEBRASKA
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska officials say there
were no boating-related deaths reported in the
state in 2013, the first time that's happened since
tracking began in 1965. The Nebraska Game and Parks
Commission says the number of boating accidents
also decreased to 31 last year. There were 44 in 2012.
Herb Angell, the state's boating law administrator,
says diligent law enforcement and expanded safety
education were factors in the change. There were eight
boating-related fatalities in Nebraska in 2012. The
state has averaged five a year since 1965.


WHALES BUZZ CALl SHORES


Whale watchers off the coast of Long Beach, Calif.
are getting a rare peek at hundreds of the giant
mammals. Whale sightings this time of year aren't
uncommon near the nation's busiest port, but are
usually reserved for gray whales, which make their
annual southward pilgrimage along the coast, feeding
on the bounties of krill and other whale foodstuffs
that coalesce at a drop-off point close to shore. But in
the last couple of weeks a slew of blue and humpback
whales have joined a record-setting number of their
gray brethren to put on a tour de force that has left
scientists baffled. "The thing you would expect to see


are gray whales migrating through;'marine biologist
Dave Bader told NPR. "And the fact that we're getting
a chance to see at this time of year fin whales, blue
whales, is really a mystery."A lack of answers hasn't
stopped scientists from speculating on potential
causes of the whale-influx. According to International
Science Times, climate change may be one culprit.
Under that theory, scientists believe that shifting
currents have sent a stream of squid and krill into
the area, leading whales on a tail chase of sorts. The
other explanation may lie in the revitalization of Long
Beach's waters. Clean-up efforts in recent years may
have helped turn around the bleak, polluted waters,
potentially bringing the whales back to their historic
migration routes just off the coast.


PETA'S EYE IN THE SKY


The civilian use of drones is spurring a legal scuffle
between hunters and animal rights activists. In
October, PETA launched the Air Angels program, a
line of drones meant to let concerned citizens report
illegal activity by hunters. Hunting groups pushed back
and, as of Jan. 1, the program has been made illegal
in Illinois with a law prohibiting "the use of drones to
interfere with hunters or fishermen."The only problem:
PETA isn't buying it. According to Jared Goodman,
PETA's director of animal law, Air Angels aren't about
interference at all. "The intention is simply to monitor
what hunters are actually doing,";'Goodman says,


"and whether they're engaged in any illegal activity,
such as drinking in possession of a firearm or illegally
using spotlights or feedlures."Ilf they spot any illegal
activity, PETA members are advised to report it to a
local game warden and not take any further action
themselves. As a result, PETA is eager to challenge the
new law, but even more eager to test out the project in
states. Hunting groups aren't so sure. "PETA's approach
here was essentially just to get some press;' says Nick
Pinizzotto CEO of The U.S. Sportsman's Alliance. He says
his members were incensed by the idea of the project,
but he hasn't heard any instances of hunters actually
being harassed by the drones."l don't think Americans
in general appreciate being spied on, whether it's
hunting or anything else."
SCIENCE SAYS: SLOT LIMITS
Before it lands on our plate, any wild fish should
spawn at least once. This is a basic principle in
fishery management. Accordingly, fishermen have
to release any fish they catch that is smaller than the
minimum size stipulated in many fisheries regulations.
However, this policy does not take into account the
extraordinary ecological importance of large spawners,
as was pointed out in several recent studies led by Dr
Robert Arlinghaus, Professor for Integrative Fisheries
Management, of the Leibniz-lnstitute of Freshwater
Ecology and Inland Fisheries and the Humboldt-
University of Berlin. Those studies have shown that
larger fish not only produce disproportionately more
eggs, but also larger eggs, which in turn results in
offspring that are hardier. The unintended conse-
quences are lower harvest in terms of number of fish
and smaller fish within the stock. The study authors
propose that it might be better to implement harvest
slots as an alternative to the popular minimum size
regulation in recreational fisheries. These "harvest
windows"would protect both the young offspring and
the experienced heavyweights, and at the same time
conserve the big fish that are popular with anglers.
MAGPUL DITCHING COLORADO
A Colorado firearms accessory manufacturer says it will
relocate to Wyoming and Texas as soon as this year
because of a recent law, as even more gun measures
may be up for a vote this November. The company,


MTRORUL.
Magpul, had threatened to leave in March after state
lawmakers restricted sales of ammunition magazines.
Arms companies cited similar restrictions passed
in Connecticut, New York and Maryland last year in
guiding relocations. Now, Magpul says it will officially
join the list by moving to Texas and Wyoming thanks
to the help of governors and business organizations
in both states. "The company began a nationwide
search for a new base of operations after legislation
was enacted in Colorado that dramatically limits the
sale of firearms accessories the core of Magpul's
business;'the business said in a statement. "Magpul
plans on initially transitioning 92 percent of its current
workforce outside of Colorado within 12 to 16 months
and will maintain only limited operations in Colorado'."
THE JOY OF MATRIMONY
Josh decided to dive in and get married to his longtime
girlfriend Melissa. One evening after the honeymoon,
he was sitting at his workbench rigging some leaders
for an upcoming fishing trip. Melissa stood and
watched him for a few minutes. Then she said,"Honey,
I've been thinking now that we're married, maybe
it's time you quit fishing and hunting and focused on
our relationship."As the last word left her lips, Josh's
face contorted into a grimace of pain. "Josh? Are you
all right?"she asked."Yeah, I'm OK,"he replied. "It's just
that, for a second there, you were sounding like my
ex-wife.'"Ex-wife!"she cried. "You never told me you'd
been married to some other girl!""He looked her right
in the eye and said, "I haven't'."

Punta Gorda-based Waterproof Charts j

has been serving customers for 27 years a


By Lee Anderson
WaterLine Editor


If you've driven southbound on U.S. 41 through Punta Gorda,
the odds are you've seen the Waterproof Charts sign nestled
on the side of a downtown building on Cross Street. A lot has
changed since the company opened its doors 27 years ago. What
started as almost a courtesy to boaters in Burnt Store Marina
has turned into quite an operation.
From the Panhandle all the way down to the Keys, Waterproof
Charts has a map for you. But the Punta Gorda-based company
also distributes maps all the way up to Maine, the Great Lakes,
Washington and even the Bahamas.
"People think we just have maps of Charlotte Harbor;' says
sales manager Rob Cuddihy. "Sure, that map is popular, but
most of our business comes from distributing nationally to
places like Walmart, West Marine, Bass Pro Shops and other
businesses. We've come a long way since we started out.":'
Waterproof Charts started out selling basic paper maps, but
those maps would get destroyed after a day on the water, so
they began coating them with a synthetic material. They even
float.
"You can pretty much do what you want to with our maps;'
Rob says. "They are durable. You can even write on them with a
pencil, then simply wash it off. A lot of people even frame them.
We began selling frames because it became so popular.":'
Whether you stay inshore, or venture miles offshore,
Waterproof Charts has a map for you. The maps are equipped
with the traditional navigational symbols, but some also include
boat ramps, marinas, fuel docks and even places to buy bait.
If boating isn't you thing, and you prefer to canoe or kayak,
they have a detailed map of the Great Calusa Blueway Paddling
Trail a 190-mile marked canoe and kayak trail throughout
Charlotte Harbor.
Waterproof Charts newest maps tell you whether an area is
mainly grassy, marshy or full of mangroves. They also indicate
what species offish are commonly caught or seen in a specific
area.
"The details of our newer maps are really incredible, Rob says.
"They pretty much tell you what you need to know whether you
are boating, kayaking or even fishing from a pier. And if you get
hungry, they list restaurants near the water.":'
Waterproof Charts will have various maps on display at the
upcoming Charlotte County Boat Show held Jan. 16 to 19 at the
Charlotte County Fairgrounds in Port Charlotte.
Waterproof Charts is located at 320 Cross Street, Punta Gorda.
Call 1-800-423-9026 or visit WaterProofCharts.com for more

My columns are usually about teaching
people how to fish. But I just had a truly
awesome experience with some clients that I
really want to share, because it's an excellent
reminder of what fishing is supposed to be. As
a bonus, we'll talk about drum fishing too.
Did I mention it was New Year's Eve, and it
was cold, and the wind was howling? Yeah. But
that was the time they had available, so off
we went. We needed a place to hide out from
the wind, so we headed for some docks where
I thought there might be a fish or two (OK,
actually I kinda knew the fish were there it
is my job, after all).
We caught a couple sheepies at the first
dock. At the next dock, we hooked into a black
drum, and then another. (If you're having a
hard time telling them apart, black drum have
chin whiskers and sheepshead have human-like
teeth). We started chumming with handfuls of
frozen shrimp pinched into pieces. That really
fired up the bite, and soon we had one fish
coming over the rail right after another. I don't
know if there were a bunch of them in the
area and the chum drew them in, or if there
were just a hundred drum that happened to be
parked at that magic piling, but the action was
definitely hot.
They were busy catching fish after fish, and
that was keeping me busy netting drum and
unhooking them. The whole time they were
laughing and carrying on, and just having the
time of their lives. That's what fishing should
be about having a great time with people
you care about. It gave me the warm and
fuzzies just being there. But you don't have to
take my word for it they made a video of
the trip, and you can see it for yourself (dinner,
too) at http://bit.ly/KOOylk.
OK, now on to how to catch these bad boys.
To tell you the truth, I like black drum better
than redfish. They fight harder and they taste
better (there's no bloodline to make the meat
fishy). Now, to be clear, I'm not talking about
those mongo black drum that live under the
bridges. I'm talking about the little guys -
more like 18to 24 inches. The big ones get
wormy and sluggish.
A lot of anglers regard black drum as bycatch
from sheepshead fishing. They like to hang
around docks and pilings, and they like to eat
the same sorts of things. We always catch a
few. This year, I've noticed a big increase in the
numbers of black drum, and not just where you


expect to find them. Another guide told me
he's been catching them in the potholes near
Cape Haze. I would expect to find a handful
there, but not enough that you'd notice them.
So with enough black drum around to actu-
ally target, how would you go about catching
them? Well, there's a reason they're often
caught by sheepshead fishermen, so I'd stick
with sheepshead tactics. I use a No. 1 hook with
a big splitshot sinker about 12 inches above it.
Skewer a chunk of shell-on shrimp on the hook,
toss it over and fish it right on the bottom as
close to the structure as you dare. Sometimes
the fish will hold close to the pilings but not
right on them, so if you don't get any takers
drag the bait across the bottom in the general
area. You'll catch a lot of other species with
this technique: Sheepshead, of course, but also
mangrove snapper, flounder, pigfish and a few
other shrimp-lovers.
No special tackle is required; pretty much
any inshore gear will get the job done. I like
25-pound fluorocarbon leader, partly because
it's more abrasion-resistant than mono and
partly because it's less visible in the clear
water. Toughness is important because you're
fishing right next to very sharp surfaces. Black
drum aren't really known for running like their
coppery cousins will, but they sure know where
the pilings are. Be ready to pull them out or get
cutoff.
As I mentioned, black drum are a fine table
fish. They have tough skins like redfish, so the
fillets are best prepared skinless. Because they
have a diet high in crustaceans, the flesh has
a mildly sweet flavor to it, a little like sheeps-
head but not quite as sweet. It's fantastic fried,
but it can also be baked or prepared any way
you like to fix mild white fish.
Black drum are fun to catch and good to eat.
And they're plentiful right now, so go out there
and see if you can catch a few. Just save some
for me, OK?

So much junk!

Wow, I can't believe the junk that one
person can collect in the boat over the course
of one fishing season. Going through the glove
compartment of the boat, all the rod lockers
and other storage compartments can sure
produce a lot of unwanted stuff. Considering
my lovely bride got me some new fishing
equipment for Christmas, I decided to start the
boat-cleaning process early.
After pulling all the rods out of the boat
from both of the rod lockers, the baits were
next. I've talked often about buying baits that
I know work and nothing else. Every so often I
get a bait or two that I experiment with, but I
must have slipped a gear somewhere this past
season. It seems as though I bought things
that would only work on one lake, or that
someone said was working great and obviously
wasn't, because the bait storage compartment
was full of items I normally never use. Natu-
rally, these went straight to the trash.
The one compartment that seems to collect
the most "stuff" is the glove compartment.
My glove compartment is huge almost
three times as big as the one in my vehicle.
Now, keep in mind that my partner sits
behind the passenger console where the
glove compartment is located. Yes, that would
be my wife. I very seldom ever go into that
compartment because I don't sit over there.
I found sunflower seeds, crackers, peanuts,
toilet paper (not bad to have along), paper
towels, napkins, lotion, sunscreen, gloves
and more stuff, all pushed to the back of the
compartment. We could have eaten for a week
with all the snack food accumulated in that
thing, and we could have cleaned ourselves up
for the same period of time. Again, all went to
the trash.
I found a spare anchor, and had no clue
where it came from or how it got into the back
compartment of the boat. There was also a


rain suit, and I have no idea who it belongs
to. And then there were the other trash items
like empty water and Gatorade bottles, plastic
bags, etc. By the time I cleaned the boat out,
I figured we reduced the weight by 20 pounds
or so. I'll probably get better gas mileage out
of my 250 horsepower this season if I can
keep the garbage out of the boat.
There was another surprise that I found. I'd
broken a rod earlier in the year, and took the
reel off and threw it down where I keep extra
clothing and hand towels. The surprise gives
me a reason to go out and buy a new rod or
two, seeing as how I received two new reels
under the tree this year.
Now that all the junk is out, it's time to take
the boat into the shop for the yearly tune-up
and get ready to roll for the season. Once the
boat comes back from there, I'll take a day
and clean all the carpets, clean and wax the
hull and check the hubs, grease and bearings.
Other than that, I hope nothing goes wrong
this year. I'd like to avoid any huge financial
setbacks.
This past season was a good one as far as
fishing goes. I seemed to be one out of the
money in almost every tournament I fished,
so hopefully we can get that one more fish,
or better yet, one big kicker fish that is often
needed to throw you into the money. That
would be particularly rewarding this coming
season. My wife and I didn't get to fish
together as much as we would've liked, so
this year we're hoping to get out even more
and spend time for ourselves. After all, a little
relaxation while catching big Florida bass is
the only way to go.

I don't know what happens to some people It is illegal to operate any watercraft under P III
when they get on a personal watercraft. It is the influence of alcohol. While there was no
almost like the handle bars are positive and mention of alcohol in that fatal accident, one -- =
negatively charged, and like Dr. Frankenstein's might consider my Dr. Frankenstein theory as a


machine, it transforms people into mindless
monsters when they grab them.
The driver grabs the handle bars, throws
his head back, shouts, "Woo-hoo!" and then
mindlessly speeds off. I have seen people
on PWCs running into the face of a wave in
attempt to do a 360-degree flip. Of course,
most of them fall backwards into the water
with the machine on top of them, only to climb
aboard and do it again. And every boater has
been plagued by PWCs criss-crossing over their
wakes, trying to lift the small crafts into the
air while shouting with glee as they slam back
onto the water. If a person were to attempt
these antics in any other type of small craft,
you would question their sanity. But for PWCs,
this is regarded as normal behavior.
Recently, you may have read of a fatal
accident when a vessel turned into the path
of a speeding PWC. It doesn't take much
imagination to see the PWC operator in the
vessels blind spot while jumping over the
trailing wake. There are laws governing the
age of persons allowed to operate a PWC, yet I
see small children buzzing across the water on
them all the time. The law requires all persons
aboard to wear life jackets. It is unlawful to
operate a watercraft recklessly, including
close wake jumping and 360-degree flips.
It is unlawful to operate a PWC after dusk.


potential contributing factor.
PWC's provide recreational boaters with a
great way to enjoy our waters. Speeding along
closely to the water on these small craft really
is thrilling. It is much akin to the experience of
driving a motorcycle down the highway. Some
of these craft are large enough to tow a water
boarder and fast enough to tow a water skier,
providing even more recreational activities.
But again, there are laws requiring rear view
mirrors, having an observer aboard and space
for a fallen skier to climb board, so all craft
cannot be used for these purposes.
In the safe boating classes offered by various
Sail and Power Squadrons, there is a segment
dedicated to the safe and legal operation
of a PWC. I urge all PWC owners to take the
class. Unfortunately, the class does not teach
common sense, nor regard for the law those
are personal issues. But the class will put you
a step ahead of the crowd, and may even keep
that magic handle bar charge from turning
you into a young Frankenstein. Check out
page 30 of this week's WaterLine for upcoming
schedules. As they say in the Power Squadrons,
"Boating is fun ... we'll show you how!"

I was reading my e-news
letters from the Coast Guard
News this morning and a story
caught my eye. "Coast Guard
Auxiliary rescues woman


clinging to channel marker for
7 hours.":' In short, the story
reported a 31-year-old woman was spotted
clinging to a channel marker near Matanzas
Pass. That report was not quite accurate.
On further research I found that the boat
crew was from Coast Guard Auxiliary flotilla
9-10 in Cape Coral. The boat crew consisted
of my friend and journalism mentor, Flotilla
Commander Connie Irvin and Dan Godfrey.
They were on an early morning patrol on the
open Gulf waters headed to the Coast Guard
Station at Fort Myers Beach when Irvin
noticed what looked like a head bobbing in
the water.
Upon further investigation, Irvin and
Godfrey discovered the person in the water
was a woman trying desperately to swim
back to shore. They were near channel
marker No. 1 on the Gulf side approaching
Matanzas Pass. Godfrey maneuvered the
boat close to the woman, while Irvin
threw a life ring to her. Subsequently, the
woman was assisted up the boat ladder to
the swim platform and then brought into
the patrol boat. She was showing signs
of hypothermia, so they wrapped her in a
towel and covered her with their float coats.
They then took her to the Fort Myers Beach
Coast Guard Station where an EMS crew took
her to Health Park Medical Center. She is
expected to survive without complications.


Coast Guard



saves the



day, again


The woman stated she had gone for a
swim around 10 p.m. the night before off
Bowditch Point. After an hour she was swept
away by the outgoing tide. It was 7:43 a.m.
the next day when she was pulled aboard
the Auxiliary patrol boat. She had been in
the water for over nine hours.
Irvin reported that the EMS crew took the
woman's temperature, which was found to
be 84 degrees. Her research showed that at
82 degrees, the woman would have passed
out. Irvin also stated that the woman was
exhausted and believes if she and Godfrey
had not come upon her when they did, she
had no doubt the woman would not have
survived much longer.
From the Coast Guard News article, "With
many tourists in the area for the holidays,
it is imperative they check the weather
and get familiar with tidal patterns before
entering unfamiliar waters;' said Petty
Officer 1st Class Ronnie Leavell, operations
unit controller at Coast Guard Sector St.
Petersburg. "Weather can deteriorate,
quickly putting boaters and swimmers in
harm's way.":'

Mix the soy sauce, mirin, sake, sugar, ginger and lemon juice together in a jug. Put the tuna
steaks in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over the top. Turn the fish in the marinade,
ensuring it is well coated. Cover and leave to marinate for 30 minutes in the fridge. Preheat a
chargrill pan or barbecue hotplate until hot. Lift the tuna out of the marinade and pour the mari-
nade into a small saucepan. Bring the marinade to the boil and reduce for 1 minute. Meanwhile,
lightly oil the surface of the chargrill pan and add the tuna steaks. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each
side so that the tuna is cooked on the outside but still pink in the middle. Serve the grilled tuna
steaks with some of the marinade spooned over the top and garnished with coriander. Serve with
rice and steamed vegetables. Serves 6.

Dad said there are no old and bold sailors.
A derivative of what happens to bold pilots he
learned on Saipan in WWII. Hang in there, you
will get the connection to when and how to
employ a halyard pull.
In 1980, my wife Faye and son Adam towed a
23-foot sailboat from Michigan to Marco Island
during Easter break. There, we met Michigan
friends who had rented sailboats in Goodland.
We had some great day sails and overnighted
by the Rod and Gun Club in Everglades City.
Returning, we decided to raft up at the south
end of Keewayden Island near Marco. You can
anchor there in deep water and have a great
view of the sunset over a spit of white sand. An
epic party began and we watched a sailboat
approach Marco from the west and then veer
toward us. Who knows if that was ever possible
via what the chart called Hurricane Pass? They
ran aground on an ebb tide. My trip out in the
dinghy to haul out their anchor was wasted. Did
they really not have an anchor? Soon afterwards a
600-horsepower sportfshing boat came out from
Marco to attempt a tow rescue. It didn't stand a
chance then, but the next day at high tide was a
success. My friends laughed about a halyard pull
and the night the sail crew spent sleeping at a
heel angle of 45 degrees. I was too proud to ask
the what a haylard pull was.
About three years later, I witnessed one at a
regatta on the Canadian shore of Lake Erie. A
deep draft race boat's keel was stuck in the sand
and the waves lifted and pounded it deeper.
Pulling power was useless. Then a 15-hp dinghy
requested that a long line be attached to the sail
boat's main halyard. The dingy motored away at
90 degrees to the beam of the stuck boat. The line
to the top of the mast (via the halyard) consti-
tuted a mighty lever arm. A little power from the
dink and the sailboat heeled over to its rails and
floated free.
Fast forward to spring of 2004. Faye and I are
moving the 37-foot Hunter from Jacksonville
to Punta Gorda Isles via Key West. We departed
Fort Lauderdale with Key Largo the night's desti-
nation. Entering North Miami on the Intercoastal
Waterway, I checked the upcoming bridge on
the chart and the height markers at the base of
the bridge. I concluded that the 60-foot mast
would pass easily under the 65-foot bridge and
held constant speed. Wrong; the mast struck the
bridge with a force that lifted the bow enough
that water came in over the transom. Three
of the six beams sufficed to stop us. We were


heeled over nearly 30 degrees, with the top 3
feet of the mast trapped between two Ibeams.
That was the transforming moment from bold
sailor to a cautious and calculating one.
We called our tow provider on the radio. A
boat arrived and rigged the line for a halyard
pull. The plot was he would pull the boat over
to a heel angle that would give mast clearance,
then I would back the sailboat out. Could
anybody trust a man who had just run amok
under a bridge? He backed away to call the base
and the competitor company tow had a confer-
ence with him. Then the unsolicited boat came
to give me his towline and explain they would
haul me out, replace the mast and my insur-
ance would pay all bills. Can you say"salvage
scam"? He was rejected, and the proper provider
convinced himself to try the halyard pull. He did
a great job, and in five minutes we were backed
out and bound for Lauderdale to take the proper
route to Largo the next day.
There are many great anchorages to stay at
on our West Coast. However, the sandy bottom
tends to shoal in and tannin-colored waters
obscure the information. A slow approach to an
anchorage can reduce the force required to self-
rescue. You may be able to backtrack by putting
the helm hard over and applying full power in
forward. Reversing out is generally believed
to put dirt in the raw-water pump. You can't
always approach an anchorage on a rising tide,
so if you have a fixed-keel boat, also have a plan
and resources to self-rescue. A weighted line
with marks at half-foot intervals can be used to
find the best water depth nearby. An oversized
anchor with 100 feet of rode can be set in the
direction you want to go and then hauled with
the jib winch to supplement engine thrust.
Or set it 90 degrees from the direction of boat
travel, hauled with the main halyard to heel the
boat while the engine moves the boat.
A local tow boat damaged a friend's boat by
towing away from, rather than into, a marked
channel. As skipper, you need to have the best
current "chart"that indicates shoaling. That may
be an update to a paper chart by viewing Google
Earth. I believe that GPS maps are constrained to
Federal surveys that can't keep up with the rapid
changes on our coast.
Regardless, I now know what a halyard pull is.

Mangroves expand



up Atlantic coast


By The Associated Press


MIAMI Florida's mangroves are moving
further up the state's east coast, the latest
indicator of global climate change.
Florida's Atlantic coast gained more than
3,000 acres of mangroves in the past three
decades. That's according to new research
published in the Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences journal.
Scientists documented the mangrove growth
by looking at satellite images from 1984 to
2011. Mangrove coverage doubled in the area
between Cape Canaveral and St. Augustine.
Brown University postdoctoral researcher
Kyle Cavanaugh said that while there are
examples of climate changing having a
negative impact, this could be different. The
mangroves are replacing salt marshes, but
both are important and highly productive
coastal systems.
"The question we have to answer," Cava-
naugh said,"is what do these changes mean to


Florida's ecosystem? I think we'll find that they
are not cause for alarm.":'
The researchers examined several possible
explanations and concluded a decrease in the
number of hard freezes were the likely factor
behind the mangroves' push up the coast. Cold
snaps of 25 degrees or less halt the growth of
mangrove forests, and with fewer hard freezes,
they expanded into new areas, the scientists
found.
In Titusville there were an average of
1.2 fewer days per year with extreme-cold
temperatures between 2006 and 2011 than
between 1984 and 1989. Similar findings were
found in other cities.
The scientists are examining mangrove
movement in other parts of the world as well,
including Florida's Gulf Coast.
"There are mangrove forests all over the
globe that are pushing up on the limits of salt
marshes;"Cavanaugh told The Miami Herald.
"It's a complex situation that we'll continue to
be looking very closely at."

Endangered status



sought for crayfish


By The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE Wildlife advocates want
endangered species protections extended to a
2-inch crustacean found only in one county in
Florida's Panhandle.
The Center for Biological Diversity said that
it had filed a petition with the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service seeking protection for the
wingtail crayfish.
The crayfish is found only in Gulf County,
in seasonally flooded freshwater areas in the


flatwoods west and south of Wewahitchka.
A scientist at the center says the crayfish's
wetlands habitat is important for flood preven-
tion and water purification. Tierra Curry says
the crayfish is threatened by development,
water pollution and the effects of climate
change.
Crayfish also are called crawdads, crawfish,
mudbugs, crawly bottoms and river lobsters.
Scientists say they're important to the
ecosystem because the burrows they dig create
shelter for other animals.

Ice fishing.
Some like it, some don't. I used to like it. Some of my
best memories came from ice fishing. As a kid growing
up in Minnesota, I was never too far away from a lake.
There was a lake about five minutes walking distance
from where I grew up, and it was chock-full of blue gill,
crappie and catfish.
I'd round up some neighborhood buddies, and
we'd collect as much plywood, tarp and duct tape as
we could to keep us sheltered from the wind. I don't
remember using an auger as a kid, but I do remember
hacking away at the ice with a golf club. Probably not
the brightest thing to do, but it got the job done.
When we got older, our toys got more expensive. We
had specialized tiny ice fishing rods. Our ice houses had
generators so we could watch television. We even had
a portable stove so we could have a winter version of
shore lunch.
It's been over a decade since I've cut a hole in the ice,
and I can honestly say I'm not missing it that much -
just looking at the photo of the guy on the right gives
me the chills!
Don't get me wrong, I respect those ice anglers. I
respect them a lot. It's just that I've been a little spoiled
since moving to Florida. Instead of drilling a hole
anywhere I want to on a frozen lake, I can throw my
kayaks in the truck and launch almost anywhere I want.
Instead of bundling up in layers of clothes, I can basically
take my shirt off most of the time. However, there is
one aspect of ice fishing that was convenient you
never needed a fridge or an icebox. But I'm more than
happy to purchase an extra bag of ice or two before I hit
the Harbor. And the variety offish in Florida compared
to Minnesota? Please. Not even close. As much as I like
walleye, I have a few more options down here. Cobia,
trout, flounder, snook, redfish, snapper, grouper, Spanish


mackerel, bluefish and sailcats are delightful on the
table. And there are many more species out there.
I used to think of ice fishing as an economically
friendly way to fish. You basically need a rod and a hole
in the ice. No boat, fuel and maintenance expenses. But
the other week my folks sent me down a few ice fishing
magazines. Just like saltwater fishing, ice fishing is a
huge industry. So I flipped through them, and decided
to make a running tab of what the high-tech ice angler
outfits themselves with.
To start, you need a reel and a rod, and the ones I saw
ranged in price from S40 to S100. Not too bad. I wouldn't
recommend using a golf club to produce a nice hole, and
these days there are gas-powered augers. The ones I saw
cost about 5400. Then you'll need some shelter from
the negative wind chill. You can build your own house,
but plenty of portable ones are now available. You can
get a really nice one for about 5800. You'll also need to
get a heater, and they are available for about 5100. And
speaking about staying warm, you'll need a nice, multi-
layer wardrobe. Just a jacket and a bib alone will run you
about S500. And quality boots can cost as much as 5200.
A good hat and pair of gloves can put you out another
5100. You'll also want a comfortable chair to sit on. I was
surprised to see an entire section of a magazine devoted
to underwater cameras. The little camera is attached to
a big monitor by a 100-foot cable. They cost a minimum
of 5300. And of course, you need bait, tackle and other
supplies. All said and done, you could cough up more
than 52,000 just getting introduced to today's standard
of ice fishing.
Ice fishing has definitely come a long way since I
remember it as a kid, and I'm not even breaking the
surface on all the latest technology there is in the ice
fishing industry these days.
Ice fishing? No thanks. At least not right now.

Warm knee expected after

surgery, not three years later


DEAR DR. ROACH:
About three years ago,
my husband had a knee
replacement. The surgery
was successful, his physi-
cal therapy went very well
and he has been pleased
with the whole process
- except for one thing:
His leg (that knee area)
is uncomfortably warm,
especially when he is in
bed at night. No matter
what the temperature is in
the bedroom, it is impos-
sible for him to have any
covering on that leg.
Neither of us feels
that there has been a
discrepancy in the surgery,
nor in the therapy. Have
you heard of or had any
experience with such an
occurrence with knee
surgery? -M.L.E
ANSWER: A warm knee
is expected just after
surgery, although serious
conditions like metal
allergy and infection are
possible. Three years is a
long time for infection,
and it's obviously not
postoperative warmth
after so much time. One
suggestion would be to test
for metal allergies, which
an allergist can do.
On the other hand, if the
joint is functioning well,
and the warmth isn't so
bad that he doesn't really
want to do much about
it, he can just live with it,
but in that case I would
consider patch testing for
allergies should he need
another joint replacement
in the future.
DEAR DR. ROACH: In
my local newspaper there
is a paid advertisement
for a free trial of a cream
with the active ingredient
EDTA, which supposedly
dissolves plaque in clogged
arteries. I was recently
diagnosed with a clogged
left carotid artery. What is
your opinion on this new
cream? -J.A.
ANSWER: EDTA is a che-
lating agent, meaning it is
able to bind to and remove
the ill effects of certain
toxins, especially heavy
metals. It is not absorbed
well if at all by the
skin, so a cream will have
no effect on a blocked
carotid artery. Even given
orally the data on EDTA is
that it probably is neither
safe nor effective.
Aspirin, a statin-type
cholesterol medication
and careful control of
blood pressure and blood
sugar, if appropriate,
remain the best treatment
for a blockage of the
carotid artery. People
with severe blockages or
symptoms of a blockage,
such as a TIA, a temporary
loss of speech or weakness,
should be evaluated for

possible surgery.
Heart disease remains
the No. 1 killer. The booklet
on clogged heart arteries
explains why they happen
and what can be done to
prevent clogging. Readers

DEAR DR. ROACH:
Please discuss "transfer
factor" as it regards treat-
ment for shingles pain. A
73-year-old female recent-
ly underwent a recently
developed treatment at the
University of Mexico after
the onset of shingles in her
optic nerve. From day one
of the 10-day treatment,
she was pain-free, and
has remained so for more
than eight weeks. I should
think many people would
be grateful for such relief.
-J.M.
ANSWER: A "transfer
factor" is named for its
ability to transfer immu-
nity from one person to
another. Transfer factors
may be derived from blood
or from colostrum, a form
of milk produced just
before milk.
Although I am intrigued
by the case you mention,
I am afraid the literature
on transfer factor is mostly
three decades old and
insufficient for me to
recommend it for use in
patients, although I would
be delighted to read more
scientific studies, since
it seems promising. I did
answer a letter recently
from a woman who had
ongoing shingles for years,
and clearly we need better
therapies for such cases.
Dr. Roach regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but
will incorporate them
in the column when-
ever possible. Readers
may email questions to
ToYourGoodHealth@med.

order form of available

Can a curtain be a drape?


Dear Heloise: I have
always wondered about
this and am finally writing,
hoping you have the
answer. What is the differ-
ence between curtains and
drapes? -AndreaW, via
email
Although many people
think curtains and drapes
are the same thing, since
they both cover windows,
there is a difference by
definition and use, even
though most of us (me
included) use the words
interchangeably.
Curtains usually are a
lighter fabric, thin or sheer.
They are not lined and
won't block out light. They
should not be used for
privacy, since you can see
through them! They can
be very colorful, and add
a decorative touch. I have
some in my little "study."
Drapes are made of
heavy fabric and typically
are lined. They are used
for blocking out the light,
cold and heat, as well as
for privacy. They can hang
from the top of windows to
the floor for a more formal
look. Heloise

Painter's tape
Dear Heloise: I love
using painter's tape for all
sorts of household things.
I tear off a small piece and
attach it to food contain-
ers with prepped foods
and leftovers. I write the
date with a permanent
marker to keep track of
when I prepared the food.
It's easy to peel off.
I also use painter's tape


BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott


Hints from Heloise

to close boxes for pasta,
crackers, etc., as it seals ithe
box and is easy to reopen
and close. I use it to attach
pretty postcards to my office
hutch so I can easily remove
and replace them without
damaging the surface. -
Linda H. in San Antonio
Linda, I love this hint,
and I, too, use painter's
tape for lots of things. It
even comes in colors, and
runs from about $5-$6 up
to more than $15, but it will
last a long time. Heloise

Remember when
Dear Heloise: When I
dye my hair, I cut the box
where it says the color
number, and on the back
I write the date that I dyed
it. I keep it in my medicine
cabinet to have a reference
when I need to dye again.

Dusty shades
Dear Heloise: I use a
lint roller to clean dusty
lampshades. Works like a
charm, especially if you
have pets and have a lot
of hair around the house.

Eager grandmas must defer

to new family's wishes


DEAR ABBY: In response
to the letter from "Family
First in Florida" (Nov. 3),
it's no wonder her son
and daughter-in-law
want some peace and
quiet when their new baby
arrives. Grandma-to-be ap-
pears controlling, entitled
and someone who will be
more of an endurance test
than a helping presence.
They are right to set kind,
yet firm, boundaries with
her.
I wanted privacy during
and after childbirth, and
I'm grateful my mom and
MIL respected our wishes.
I needed time to establish
a nursing routine, heal
and get to know my baby
before I was ready to host
overnight guests.
My kids' grandmas
both have strong, loving
relationships with their
grandkids, so please
remind "Family First"
she's not missing out on
anything. She'll still get to
be a doting granny, but for
now she should back off
and remember the arrival
of the child is not about
HER. -EXPERIENCED
MOM IN OMAHA
DEAR MOM: I'm pleased
everything worked out
well for you. That woman's
letter hit a nerve with my
readers. A sampling of their
comments:
DEAR ABBY: I had the
same vision of being there
when my grandkids were
born. However, my kids
have not involved me the
way I imagined.
"Family First's" son is
putting HIS family first, as
he should. He and his wife
have chosen what they feel
will make the smoothest,
least-stressful launch for
their new family, and he is
protecting that plan. If she
doesn't respect her son's
right to make that decision,
she risks jeopardizing her
future relationship with
him, his wife and the
grandkids.
The essence of a moth-
er's love is sacrifice. It's time
to put aside her dreams
and help her son fulfill
his. SUZIE IN OLYMPIA,
WASH.
DEAR ABBY: The
new parents are greatly


Dear Abby

misinformed about the im-
portance of having grand-
parents around just before
and immediately after the
birth of a new baby. It helps
to have a family member in
the waiting room to update
other family and well-wish-
ers so Dad can devote full
attention to the new mom
and baby.
My mother was a
godsend, taking care
of everything while we
bonded with our child. She
did the cooking, the chores,
and gave us needed breaks
during the day so we
were able to tolerate night
feedings. When our second
child arrived, she helped
with our older one.
Childbirth is difficult. I
don't think this new mom
realizes she won't be able
to do it all. -SHANA IN
LOUISIANA
DEAR ABBY: Has
"Family First" considered
that her daughter-in-law's
mother may be coming?
Unfair as it may seem,
in cultures around the
world, the role of the
paternal grandmother is
far different than that of
the maternal grandmother.
-KNOWS FOR SURE IN
KENYA
DEAR ABBY: My son and
DIL told everyone, includ-
ing the other grandparents,
who live near them, they
wanted no visitors for at
least six weeks. That sad
grandma needs to brush
up on her Skype and
Facetime skills so she can
see them frequently on her
computer and phone. We
do this with our kids.
In the first year, the
baby learned our voices
and saw our faces often.
When we met again, it
was like we'd always been
there. COMPUTER
GRANNY


"Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil ma-
keth himself a prey: and the Lord saw it, and it displeased
him that there was no judgment."- Isaiah 59:15.
I imagine that the Lord is displeased with our world
today as He was back then. Where is justice? Where is
truth? We will never recapture these values until we
humble ourselves before the Lord.

The proper response to Blackwood
when holding a void has been
debated for decades. When holding
two or more aces, playing regular
Blackwood as opposed to Key Card,
an elegant solution is to lie by two
aces, this forces partner to sign off at
the five-level, whereupon you cuebid
your void. That is exactly what North


did here, and South probably
overreacted when he jumped to
seven. The grand slam was not a
good one, but there were chances.
Declarer won the opening lead and
then cashed the ace of spades before
ruffing a spade in hand. South needed
an extra trick even if the spades
behaved, so he led the king of clubs.
East covered, dummy ruffed and he
was in business!
Next came the ace of diamonds,
followed by a diamond to the king.
South cashed the queen of clubs,
discarding the board's remaining
diamond, and made the rest on a
careful cross-ruff. Money in the
bank! Note that had South drawn the
last trump before ruffing a spade, the
contract would have failed. There
would not be enough trumps to ruff
all the spades.
The best course of action when you
respond to Blackwood with a void is
usually to ignore the void. Partner has
said, 'Tell me how many aces you
have and I can place the final
contract." Tell him how many aces
you have. Your void may not be
useful.
