LIVE LIKE A TOURIST


See dozens

of manatees
any of us never saw a man-
atee until we moved down
here.
We never walked on a beach or dock
"up north" and saw
Ba little, whiskered
snout surface for
S! a breath of air. We
never saw giant
baked potato-like
blobs slowly (really
slowly) lumber
through the water.
Now we can as
S Floridians, though
Christy sometimes they can
be hard to find.
FEINBERG This is the ideal
COLUMNIST time of the year,
however, to see
manatees. And the best, closest place to
see dozens of them is at Manatee Park
in Fort Myers, where manatees flock
during the winter months. The Florida
Power & Light facility discharges warm
water into a canal that meets with the
Orange River, providing manatees with
a warm environment when the Gulf of
Mexico dips below 68 degrees.
The large number of manatees
frolicking in slow-mo attracted a lot
of attention. Therefore, in 1996, Lee
County and FPL created the 17-acre
park so guests could view the manatees
in a noncaptive refuge. Visitors also can
learn a lot about manatees from the
informational signs around the park, as
well as through the lectures provided at
11 a.m. and 2 p.m. every day through
March 28.
Margot Critchfield, a part-time
Naples resident, had never seen a man-
atee in person. So she recently brought
her friends visiting from Pittsburgh to
Manatee Park.
"I came here specifically to see
manatees," she said. "I was satisfied."
She learned that manatees crowd
the park when it's cool/cold as it has
been recently.
"I'm going to start watching the
weather," she said.
The park is very easy to find: On Palm
Beach Boulevard (State Road 80) just
east of Interstate 75 in Fort Myers. More
than 150,000 people visit Manatee Park
each year, according to Lee County.
There are two ways to view the
manatees: by land and by sea.
Most people see the manatees from
the numerous viewing areas on land
in the park. There is a pier/boardwalk
along with a long stretch of sidewalk
that winds along the canal, where many
of the manatees are visible swimming
near the surface and delighting visitors

New principal for CHS


Punta Gorda Middle's Corsaletti earns district nod


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER
PUNTA GORDA- For Cathy
Corsaletti, accepting the job as prin-
cipal at Charlotte High School was a
tough call, because she would have
to leave Punta Gorda Middle School,
where she has been principal since
2006.
Nevertheless, district officials
believed she was an ideal candidate.
Corsaletti's three children attended
Charlotte High, and her husband is a
football coach and a teacher there.


"Our family was
embedded in that culture,
and that's exciting to me
to get back into that high
school's culture and tradi-
tions," said Corsaletti, 62.
"I think Charlotte High
School, with the tradition
CORSALETTI they have, was just so
wanting for a principal
that has Charlotte High School (and)
Punta Gorda roots."
Charlotte County Public Schools
superintendent Doug Whittaker
announced the decision to appoint


Corsaletti to CHS on Tuesday.
Corsaletti will continue to be principal
at Punta Gorda Middle for the rest of
the school year, and then will transfer
to Charlotte High by June 30.
"I'm humbled by the confidence and
trust that Dr. Whittaker had in me.... I
hope to fill the shoes," Corsaletti said.
She moved to Charlotte County in
1986 and started working as a math
teacher at Port Charlotte Middle
School, where she was promoted to
assistant principal. In 2006, she was

Blind horse, healing man forge special bond


By SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
STAFF WRITER
When Steve Stapp woke up after
being in a coma for 16 days, he was
supposed to be dead.
The Texas native was visiting
people in December 2009, when
he had to be hospitalized for liver
problems. He soon went into a coma
and doctors expected he would not
live for more than a few days, so he
was taken to a hospice in Ellenton.


But more than two weeks later, he
suddenly woke up. "I saw a nurse
and told her I was really hungry and
wanted something to eat," Stapp said.
"Then I wanted to walk, but she told
me after being in a coma so long, I was
not going to be able to do it."
But in a few days, he started to regain
his strength and was transferred to
Tidewell Hospice in Arcadia.
There he met a nurse, Monica
Siercks, whose family operates

park breaks ground

EAST OF PUNTA GORDA
- Although still a year away
from opening, the 1,000-acre
property off Bermont Road
known as Florida Tracks and
Trails is gearing up to be the
largest outdoor concert and
recreational vehicle facility in
Southwest Florida.
Earlier this month the
company broke ground
on a massive project that,
when complete, will fea-
ture a 15,000-seat outdoor


amphitheater, five race tracks,
a mud course, a 40-acre paint-
ball area, a recreational vehicle
park, zip-lining and miles of
off-road vehicle trails.
"A project like this has never
been done in the state. It's
very unique," said Rachael
Ketterman, the company's
marketing and events director.
For the last two years, Tracks
and Trails has been working to
obtain the necessary permits
from Charlotte County to
begin prepping the site.

Contract muddies

lake cleanup

MURDOCK County
commissioners remain
split on whether to
pay an additional
$1.1 million for the
Sunshine Lake cleanup,
an issue clouded by the
dredging contract itself.
At Tuesday's Charlotte
County Commission
workshop, the contract
came under attack as
commissioners try de-
cide what to do with the
contractor's request for


more money and time
to remove blue-green
algae that is choking
the lake and the water-
way. Adding urgency
to the discussion is
that the timetable for
the $2.5 million proj-
ect already has been
extended, allowing the
living algae to continue
to grow.
"We're getting to the
point now where this is
an extremely critical sit-

Car show raises funds for Salvation Army


SUN PHOTOS BY SUE PAQUIN
The sixth annual Salvation Army fundraiser car show was held at Muscle Car City in Punta Gorda
on Saturday. Nearly 400 antique and classic cars, trucks and motorcycles were displayed. The
event was sponsored by the Salvation Army in an effort to replenish funds after the holidays.
Here, Ken Simkins has owned his 1960 Nash Metropolitan for nine years.


Dan and Carol Rupp, from Fort Wayne, Ind., check out the 1966 Corvette convertible on display, as
does Paul Fabiano.


Punta Gorda residents Sonny and Kendall Furman brought their
1957 Buick Roadmaster and their 6-year-old greyhound, Lucy,
whose collar says "Buick Girl;' out to the car show.


George Gubala relaxes next to his 1971 Chevy Cheyenne, which
he has owned for 15 years. The Gulf Cove resident says he thinks
antique trucks are harder to come by because trucks are more
often used as work vehicles, and says he thinks it's wonderful to
see so many in good condition at the show.


Dan Letobar and his son Joseph, 7, drove up from Cape Coral to
see the cars.

Former candidate's trial delayed


ByADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
It's been nearly two
years since former
Charlotte County
sheriff candidate Ed
Pope was
questioned
by author-
ities about
e. his election
campaign.
During
an inter-
POPE view with
a Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement inspector
in May 2012, the State
Attorney's Office says
Pope lied about his
campaign manager's
actions during a meet-
ing and about raffle
tickets from a campaign
event. He was subse-
quently charged with
two counts of making a


false statement to law
enforcement.
Maintaining his
innocence, Pope was
finally set to get his
day in court his trial
was scheduled to begin
today in Charlotte
County.
But a gaffe by prose-
cutors has delayed the
trial.
"The FDLE agent's
office was in Sarasota,"
explained Pope's attor-
ney, Kevin Shirley. "So if
a crime was committed,
it was committed in
Sarasota. It took until
the week before trial
for them to figure that
out."
The SAG refiled the
case Friday in Sarasota
County, where Pope will
now stand trial.
"Since this is an
open case, I can't say
much at this time,"

said SAO spokeswoman
Samantha Syoen.
Pope who had
pleaded not guilty in
Charlotte will have
to be arraigned again.
That's not until the first
week of February.
"Basically, we're
all ready to go," said
Shirley.
Pope did not return
phone calls Tuesday.
The former Florida
Highway Patrol trooper,
now in his mid-40s, has
been having difficulty
finding employment
in law enforcement,
according to his lawyer.
"He's just not working
right now because
no one will hire him
because he's got this
thing pending," said
Shirley. "This has left
such a bad taste in his
mouth."
The attorney added


Pope is also fighting
the two misdemean-
ors as a matter of
principle.
"The investigation
initially centered on
violation of election
laws or the gambling
statute," said Shirley.
Pope was never found
guilty of any wrong-
doing in his fundraising
techniques. Authorities
originally questioned
the legality of a raffle
he held during his
campaign.
"The State Attorney's
Office is the one who
came up with the
theory that he provid-
ed a false statement
during the investigation
because they couldn't
find where he violated
election laws or the
gambling statute," said
Shirley.
The SAO offered the

defense a chance to
waive venue and keep
the trial in Charlotte.
Pope and Shirley opted
for moving and delay-
ing the trial because of
potential local issues
during jury selection.
"We were going to get
into a battle of consti-
tutional rights between
Mr. Pope's right to be

Shirley. "Rather than
put a bunch of jurors
through that, we just
said you know what,
as long as the venue
is proper in Sarasota
County, let's just keep
it there so we avoid
that whole situation."

the soapy rock was first

of Zolfo Springs in the

However, unaware of its

business.
Phosphate's presence
in the river surfaced
again some 20 or so
years later in 1881 when
Francis LeBarron, a cap-
tain in the Army Corps
of Engineers, was tasked
with surveying the river
from Fort Meade south.
Farmers had petitioned
Congress to fund con-
struction of a barge canal
connecting the Peace
and St. John's rivers. At
the time, there were
no railroads and folks

Get rid of the clutter., l


sought a more efficient
route for getting their
produce to market.
Several large deposits
of high-grade phosphate
were noted in LeBarron's
report, but still, no
one else grasped their
significance. For several
years, he tried to interest
potential investors in the
practicality of mining the
river's bed and banks, but
to no avail. Sometime
later, GeorgeW Scott,
an Atlanta fertilizer
manufacturer, became
aware of the report and


traveled down the river,
confirming LeBarron's
observations.
Realizing the rock's
value, over the next
two years Scott quietly
purchased over 10,000
acres of riverfront
property covering about
21 miles of riverbank and
formed the Peace River
Phosphate Co.
He soon came to an
agreement with Hugh
Comer and Joseph Hull
of Savannah, Ga., to run
the mining operation.
Hull came south to build
storage bins, docks, and
a few houses on the
river's east bank south of
Arcadia. The settlement
soon came to be known
as Hull. Not much
remains today, but it still
appears on maps mid-
way between Nocatee
and Fort Ogden.

Gorda occurred in April

tons shipped that year.
With improved mining
techniques, over the next
five years almost 400,000
tons were shipped.
Early methods in-
volved digging the ore
from sand bars and
banks with pick and
shovel, drying it by fire,
then barging it downriver
or loading it on train
cars for transport to
waiting ships. Mining
was soon improved using
steam-driven suction
pumps. Wet ore was then
transported to raised
drying bins, allowing wa-

Construction of bins
and barges was overseen

Officials: Local pilot


at fault in Calif. crash


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER

The Punta Gorda
man who died in
October 2012 after
crashing his small
plane into a bluff south
of San Francisco took
off in poor weather
and became disori-
ented, the National
Transportation
Safety Board recently
determined.
Investigators said
Andrew Hayden, 75,
was not qualified to
take off in cloudy


conditions while rely-
ing only on his plane's
instruments, according
to a report in the San
Francisco Chronicle.
Hayden's body was
found in the wreckage
of his Aeropro CZ A240
single-engine sport
plane on Oct. 16, 2012,
near Moss Beach, Calif.
Hayden had taken off
around 6 p.m. the day
before from nearby Half
Moon Bay Airport. His
wife reported that he
failed to land at Marana
Regional Airport near
Tuscon, Ariz.


Authorities said there
was no evidence of me-
chanical malfunctions
- the plane crashed
after making a climbing
left turn and losing
altitude, perhaps while
Hayden was trying to
return to the airport,
the Chronicle reported.
The elderly pilot had
given up his private-
pilot single-engine
certificate due to fail-
ing eyesight, officials
said, but he could still
fly sport planes with a
valid driver's license.

While Corsaletti was
reluctant to leave her
school, she said she's
"ready to dive in and
become a Tarpon."
The new position will
be exciting because
"high school is so much
different (than middle
school); you watch the
(ninth-graders) turn
into adults," Corsaletti
said. And because she's
coming from the middle
school down the street,
"when the time comes
that I walk in there, I'm
going to have so many
familiar faces."
Wayne Sallade,
Charlotte County's
emergency management
director and a CHS
graduate, was pleased
with the news.
"It's a logical move, and
I think it bodes well for
CHS," he said. "I, as an
(alumnus), am happy to
hear that."

Bill Truex said.
Also complicating the issue is that
ProLime Corp. submitted the only
qualified bid. If the county does not
accede to the contractor's request,
options are limited.
"If they walk away, we're in
trouble," Commissioner Tricia Duffy
said.
ProLime work crews have found
much more algae than anticipated
in cleaning up Sunshine Lake,
which now is completed. In addi-
tion, the removal of large pieces of
debris on the lake bottom not
included in the contract has
delayed overall progress, they said.
The language of the contract
also has allowed room for different
interpretations. For example, the
contract uses as the cost basis the
total 12.7 acres of contaminated
water to be cleaned, but then talks
about the volume of material being
removed. As a result, more algae
could mean more cost.
There is no confusion on the part
of Commissioner Chris Constance,
however, who is adamant about
holding ProLime to the terms of the
contract, and even penalizing the
company for delays.
"I'm not in favor of spending an-
other red cent on this," Constance
said. "I have a real problem with
people coming back to us for more
money. A contract is a contract."
The penalty provision in the con-
tract stipulates a $1,423 fine per day
for not completing the project on
time and in a satisfactory manner.
The original project, which began
a year ago, was to be finished
by Oct. 11, 2013, officials said.
However the commission already
approved one extension to Jan. 1,
2014, as well as an extra $100,000
for the removal of cattails.
ProLime now has requested
another change order in the con-
tract, asking for six months more to
complete the waterway portion of
project, along with the extra
$1.1 million.
Calvin Anderson of ProLime Corp.
has stated work crews have removed
3 tons of algae from Sunshine Lake,
and expect to find at least 2.5 tons


"The reality is, we've got
to get the job done and
complete the project.
We don't have a choice."

Stephen R. Deutsch,
County Commissioner

more in the Sunrise Waterway.
The acreage-versus-volume in-
consistency in the contract, as well
as other contractual disputes stem-
ming from large county projects
in the past, prompted commission
Chairman Ken Doherty to criticize
those responsible.
"I believe we have a problem
with contract administration," said
Doherty, who left the door open to
paying the additional cost to finish
the project.
Commissioner Stephen R.
Deutsch, while voicing support for
the existing contract, indicated he
would support the latest demand to
amend the contract.
"The reality is, we've got to get the
job done and complete the project.
We don't have a choice," he said.
Scientists have determined the
algae problem was caused by a high
level of nutrients, low water levels
and poor circulation in the lake and
the waterway. But they still don't
know the cause of the excessive
nutrients. Although they have not
found this unique form of algae to
pose any particular health hazard,
it affects water quality and creates a
foul odor.
"This is an ecological nightmare,"
Constance said.
Another question that surfaced
during the workshop focused on
where the money would come from
if the extra charge is approved.
County Administrator Ray Sandrock
looked at various funding sources
- the gas tax, the county's general
fund, the Greater Port Charlotte
Street & Drainage MSBU or the
Mid Charlotte Stormwater Utility
MSBU, which has funded most of
the project so far before recom-
mending the money be drawn from
the county's capital projects fund.
The issue should come before the
board for a formal vote at a future
commission meeting.

to Jasmine's in 2011.
The 11-year-old gelding
was brought there after
being confiscated by
law enforcement in
another county, where
he was being abused
and neglected. The horse
had been beaten on the
head with such force, he
suffered detached retinas
in both eyes and became
totally blind in fact, he
still bears a scar from the
blow. He had been tied
up and left to die. Gary
and Sandy Deleandro,
who run Jasmine's, began
a fundraising campaign
to help feed and care for
the horse.
Stapp, who by then
had become a regular at
Jasmine's, felt an instant
kinship with the horse:
both had come back
from the brink of death,
in need of healing.
Stapp did some
research, looking for a
good Indian name for
the paint horse, and
found Takoda: a Sioux
word meaning "a friend
to everyone." The name
seemed fitting es-
pecially as three of his
four grandparents were
Native Americans.
"This horse fits his
name," Stapp said.
"Despite what happened
to him, how badly he was
abused, he is still gentle."
For two years, Stapp
continued to work with
Takoda, until finally last
month, Jasmine's said he
should be the big paint's
new owner.
Stapp found a nice
pasture to house him
and prepared to load
the horse into a trailer
to take him to his new
location. "I didn't know
what to expect. Here he
is, totally blind, and we're
asking him to step up
into a trailer.


The paint horse, reminded Steve Stapp of an Indian mount, so
he came up with an Indian name. "Takoda" means "a friend to
all" in the Sioux language, and seems to fit the gentle horse.
Iak W.E -

"Where are my cookies?" Takoda seems to say as he nudges Steve Stapp. Every day Stapp follows
the horse's daily meal with three horse treats, and Takoda knows if he hasn't gotten all three of


them.
"But he didn't hesi-
tate," Stapp said. "He just
walked right in."
In a way, as Stapp
helps Takoda heal, the
paint horse helps Stapp,
too. Caring for the horse
has brought a new
purpose to his life, after
he almost lost it four
years ago.

Lifelong love
for animals
Stapp's love for horses
came at an early age.
Growing up in Texas, he
had a pasture behind his
house with two horses.
Stapp would often go to
see and talk to the horses
and developed a friend-
ship with them.
One night, though, the
6-year-old boy looked
out and saw flames
shooting into the sky
from the barn where the
horses were kept over-
night. He was alarmed,
worried sick about his
two equine friends, and
cried himself to a restless
sleep. His dad finally
called the neighbor at
2 a.m., reporting that his
son was inconsolable


about the man's horses.
Then his dad took
young Steve outside,
leading him back to the
pasture, and there was
the neighbor with both
horses on leads, safe and
sound. "He had been
able to get them both out
of the barn," Stapp said.
In college, Stapp
trained horses for extra
cash, but got away from
that over time.
Once he settled in
Arcadia, though, he
adopted two rescued
dogs. Czar (pronounced
like Caesar) is a Golden
Retriever who had
lost all his hair when
Stapp got him. He had
little money but found
Banfield Charitable
Trust affiliated with


the veterinarian offices
connected with PetSmart
stores which helped
him find a cure for the
Golden. The dog had a
thyroid condition and,
once treated, his coat
came back.
"I found I had room in
my heart for another,"
Stapp said, so he adopt-
ed a chocolate lab whom
he named The Artful
Dodger, called "Dodger"
for short.

Happy in green
pastures
When Stapp first
brought Takoda to the
new pasture, it took a
few days for the horse
to get his bearings. He
shares the space with


Takoda, blinded by a former owner, now stands patiently while
Steve Stapp grooms him. Stapp's goal is to be able to ride
Takoda to the rodeo parade and other venues where he can
share the paint's story, one with a happy ending.


two steers, and they greet
each other from time to
time. Takoda has also
made friends with the
neighbor horses in the
adjacent pasture. Now
he knows his way around
the pond and how to
navigate to the little shed
where he is fed every day.
And he looks forward to
Stapp's visits when he is
fed, groomed and fussed
over.
Stapp himself is dis-
abled and cannot work,
so his resources are lim-
ited. Skip's Bitless Bridle
donated a special bridle
to Stapp for Takoda, and
he picked up an antique
saddle from a pawn shop.
He is starting to ride
Takoda, and the big paint
trusts his new owner to
guide him. Stapp's hope is
to be able to ride Takoda
in the rodeo parade and


show people what love
and kindness can do,
even for an animal who
seemed hopeless. He's
hoping now for donations
to get a better saddle and
ultimately a trailer to be
able to take Takoda to
fundraisers.
When Stapp feeds the
horse every day, he fin-
ishes by giving him three
horse cookies. Takoda
looks forward to them.
When he doesn't get
his "dessert," the paint
nudges Stapp, letting
him know something is
missing. "He's smart,"
Stapp said, "People don't
think horses can count,
but he knows if I only
give him two, he lets me
know he wants the third.
And as soon as he has
all three, he's happy to
walk back out into his
pasture."


HOW YOU CAN HELP:

Col. Norm MacLellan received Silver Star for service in Vietnam


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Col. Norm MacLellan of
Venice had already served
one tour in Vietnam and
survived the 1968 Tet
Offensive when he got in
the firefight of his life with
NorthVietnameseArmy
troops during his second
tour of duty along Highway
1, north of Saigon in the
summer on 1972.
"When I arrived back
inVietnam in 1972 on a
second tour, the Easter
Offensive between the NVA
and the SouthVietnamese
was going on. I became a
forward air observer to call
in air strikes against the
North Vietnamese Army,"
he said.
"Every morning, as soon
as it got light, the NVA
would start zeroing their
guns in on us. They were
using 105s they captured
from the SouthVietnamese
along with 20,000 rounds
of ammunition. They were
giving it back to us one
shell at a time," explained
MacLellan, now 73.
"We were being pretty
heavily pounded by the
NVAs artillery when I was
hit in the arm by shrapnel
on June 21, 1972. At this
point we were taking so
much enemy artillery on us
they couldn't take me out in
a helicopter."
By this time MacLellan
was a major serving as an
adviser to ARVIN (Army of
the Republic of Vietnam)
troops in the Central
Highlands. His job was to
call in air strikes on the
NVA.
"Our command post was
an L-shaped bunker. I was
sitting at one end of the
L near the entrance. Next
to me was my translator
and next to him was the
Vietnamese regimental
commander, a full colonel,"
he said. 'An NVA shell hit
right outside our bunker
and a piece of shrapnel hit
me in the back of my neck.
Another piece of shrapnel,
from the same shell, hit the
colonel and killed him.
"The reason I wasn't
killed is because I had
taken off my web belt that
held my plastic canteen
and hung it behind me on
a peg. The piece of shrapnel
that hit me went through
my canteen first. If it hadn't,
it would have probably torn
my head off."
Holding up what is left
of his battered canteen, he
smiled and said, "This can-
teen is my lucky charm."
"I was temporarily
stupefied by the piece of
shell that hit me. My neck
wound was cauterized so
it didn't bleed," he said.
"When I regained my facul-
ties I realized the shell that
injured me and killed the
colonel had also knocked
out our radio antennae
compound. I couldn't reach
air support because our
antennae were down.
"I used another radio to
call in an emergency air
strike. I figured we were
about to be over-run by
the NVA and somebody
needed to do something
to stop them immediately.
They put in 16 sorties right
over us that day that caused
the NVA to break off the
fight.
"They wanted to

by two gunships for

"The three helicopters
came in at treetop level.
The gunships shot along
both sides of the road to
suppress enemy fire. We

the road and we yelled
over the radio to the pilots


-'Stop, stop, stop!'
'As the Medevac helicop-

started running toward it.
Me and a couple of ARVIN
soldiers carrying the colo-

in a poncho were headed

were getting closer to the
helicopter, an NVA soldier
came out from the other
side and started firing at
our helicopter. I took him

"By the time I got aboard
the helicopter it was full of
wounded ARVIN troops
who wanted to get out
of the war zone. There
were so many wounded
soldiers on the helicopter
we weren't sure it could get
airborne. The Vietnamese
wounded were throwing
everything out that wasn't
tied down. They even threw
out the body of their dead
commander tied to his
stretcher.
"Somehow we made
it back to Saigon and
dropped off all the ARVIN
wounded at a hospital. The
hospital staff also decided
they were going to keep
me for a couple of days for

observation. I discovered
I had broken one of my
hands during the shootout.
They wired it back together
and put my arm in a cast."
For MacLellan's action
during the Easter Offensive,
he would receive a Silver
Star.
MacLellan thought he
was headed back to the
states to recover. Instead,
he was returned to his
ARVIN command. The
SouthVietnamese troops
wanted him to stay
"I ended up on an
advisory team in Suan Loc.
Most of my time was spent
out in the jungle fighting
small groups of NVA with
ARVIN soldiers," he said.
"I received the Army
Commendation Medal
with a'V' for valor for that
action," he recalled more
than 35 years later.
"On Jan. 31, 1973,
the NVA signed a peace
treaty with South Vietnam.
Canadian peacekeepers


came in and took our
place. Myself, an American
captain and a sergeant got
a Jeep and headed south
down Highway One from
Suan Loc to Saigon. We
didn't even have a pistol,
we had turned in all our
equipment.
"For the moment the
war was over and we went
home at last. Two years
later the NVA attacked the
South once again. Without
our air support, the South
Vietnamese Army fell to the
North. OnApril 30,1975,
the NVA marched in and
took over the South. That
was the end of that war."
MacLellan continued his
ascent through the chain of
command as he went from
post to post in this country
and Germany for the next
20 years.
He wrapped up almost
three decades in the
Army as a full colonel in
command of the American
garrison at Mainz,
Germany. In January 1993
he retired from the service.
He and Ellen, his German-
born wife, moved to Venice
in 1995 where his parents
had retired.

here I got a job teaching
Army ROTC at Riverview
and Booker high schools
in Sarasota. I did that for
six years and retired for
a second time," he said.
"Then I was asked to help
start the Sarasota Military
Academy. I worked there
for a year and started its
ROTC program."
During this period he
also served as the com-
mander of the American
Legion in Venice.
Now his time is spent
playing in the North Port
Concert Band. When
MacLellan isn't doing that,
he can often be found as

Report: Man bites out



fiancee's nose piercing


MURDOCK- Aman
took out his anger on his
fiancee early Monday
by biting out her nose
piercing, according to the
Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office.
Sami Cira, 27, of the
18000 block of Murdock
Circle in Murdock, was
charged with battery.
The report shows the
couple was arguing about
Cira's family shortly
before 5 a.m. and Cira
pushed the victim onto
the couch in their home.
He then "bit (the victim's)
nose, pulling out her nose
piercing, causing it to
bleed," the report shows.
The victim was able to
get away until authorities
arrived.
Cira was booked at
the Charlotte County
Jail early Monday and
released the same day on
$1,000 bond.
The report shows
the couple had been
drinking.

CCSO: Beware of
phone scam
PUNTAGORDA -The
Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office is warning resi-
dents about a new phone
scam after a Punta Gorda
man said he was called
by someone claiming to
be from the CCSO and
demanding money for a
fine.
The real Sheriff's
Office investigated and
determined the caller
had manipulated the
victim's caller ID to make
it look like he was actually
calling from one of the
CCSO offices.
"The complainant in
this case did what he
should have done. He
checked it out by calling
our District 4 office,"
Sheriff Bill Prummell said
via press release. "Nobody
at the Charlotte County


I POLICE BEAT
The information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriff's office, Florida High way
Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is
determined by the court system.


Sheriff's Office is going to
call someone to demand
payment like that."
This is the first time this
scam has been reported
in Charlotte County
recently, although similar
calls have been made to
surrounding counties.
Authorities would
like to remind people
receiving such calls to
confirm who they are
talking to and make sure
it's a legitimate call. If
you think you're being
scammed, call your local
law enforcement agency
to report the situation.

Report: 1,700
pounds of drugs
turned in to CCSO
CHARLOTTE COUNTY
-More than 1,700
pounds of out-of-date,
unused prescription
drugs were turned in to
the Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office to be
disposed of during 2013
campaigns.
The Sheriff's Office
participated in Operation
Medicine Cabinet and the
DEA-sponsored National
Drug Take Back events,
which urged residents
to bring in old drugs to
CCSO locations so they
could be properly dis-
posed of in an eco-friend-
ly way.
"These types of take-
back programs and
events are a great way for
people to get rid of med-
icines they don't need
any more so that they
don't fall into the hands
of others who might
abuse them," Sheriff Bill
Prummell said in a media
release.
The Sheriff's Office first


participated in Operation
Medicine Cabinet in
2011, taking in almost
700 pounds. That amount
more than doubled in
2012 to just over 1,400
pounds.

The Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office reported the following
arrests:
Joseph Robert Neff, 42, of
Territown, N.Y. Charge: driving with a
suspended license. Bond: $500.
Dillon Thomas Snelgrove, 18,
5300 block of Duncan Road, Punta
Gorda. Charge: driving without a
license. Bond: $500.
Janet Sue Wright, 49, 6800
block of Villaview Drive, Punta
Gorda. Charge: violation of probation

Charlotte. Charge: petty theft. Bond:

By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER

SARASOTA COUNTY-
An Osprey woman was ar-
rested Friday in connection
with the November death
S of her pit
bull, in which
authorities
claim she
S strangled the
dog because
her landlord
threatened
MANS eviction if
BEZANSON she didn't get
rid of it, according to the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office.
The case started
Nov. 14 on the 100 block of
West Base Avenue, Venice,
whenVenice police were
called to the address be-
cause Shelley Bezanson, 28,
of West Oak Street, Osprey,
randomly had admitted
to killing the dog, a report
shows.


While the report does not
state who called police, it
does say Bezanson brought
the dog's corpse to her
mother's home on West
Base Avenue to bury it.
The investigation, which
later was taken over by the
Sheriff's Office, revealed
Bezanson was facing
eviction if she didn't get
rid of the dog, named
"Diamond," and, on
several occasions starting
in October, she took the
female dog to her veterinar-
ian hoping the office would
euthanize the animal.
The dog had no physical
ailments, and since she had
"promised Diamond they
would be together (till) the
end," she took matters into
her own hands, the report
states.
It's unclear when,
precisely, Bezanson killed
the animal, but during an
interview with sheriffs
investigators Dec. 18, she
said the dog was old and


sick and needed to be put
down.
Only 7 years old, the dog
was in fine health, au-
thorities later would learn
during the same interview,
when Bezanson told them
she had a breakdown.
Promising the dog they
would never be separated,
Bezanson then turned up
the music in her home so
she would not alert the
neighbors, and strangled
the dog with its own chain
leash, the report states.
A necropsy of the dog
later would reveal the ani-
mal suffered a "prolonged,
painful and cruel death,"
the report states.
Bezanson was charged
with animal cruelty
resulting in death, and was
taken into custody Friday at
herWest Oak Street home.
She was transported to the
Sarasota County Jail, where
she later was released on
$25,000 bond.

I OUR VIEW

Budget plan

foresees need

for more cuts

OUR POSITION: Years of staff
cuts, project delays still leave city
strapped for cash.
he first line in the City of
Punta Gorda's long-term
financial plan is pretty
straight-forward. The implications
of the statement are not.
"The plan forecasts that the
current revenue base will not
support the existing level of
municipal services through 2018,"
reads the opening sentence of
the plan, which projects revenues
and expenses for the period 2014
through 2018. Rising costs for
insurance, personnel and informa-
tion technology, combined with
slowly appreciating property values
and associated tax revenue are
projected to produce a $1.5 mil-
lion budget gap as early as 2016.
The city, by law, cannot operate
with a budget deficit, so the
gaps projected for Fiscal Year
2016-17 through FY2018-19 are
for planning purposes only. Even
the smaller $487,858 difference
between revenue and expenses in
2015 must be closed somehow. In
his column today, City Manager
Howard Kunik wrote, "Staff has
already identified $235,000 in
spending reductions that could
be used to lower the FY 2015 gap."
The city already has been
tapping reserves and shifting
funding from planned projects
and purchases to plug past and
current year gaps. Money from
the one-cent sales tax has also
been used for vehicle purchases,
a legal but, in our mind, objec-
tionable use of money that should
go to funding infrastructure and
amenities. Staff cuts have been
an annual occurrence since 2007,
with 50 "full-time equivalent
positions" eliminated, a 16 per-
cent cut. The cuts continued this
month, with the elimination of
the growth management director
position.
The plan is very conservative
on the revenue side, assuming, for
example, that the one-cent sales
tax does not get extended past
December 2014. The projections
lop about $2 million a year off the
revenue and expenditure sides of
the budget forecasts in the event
the Nov. 4 tax referendum fails.
"We're assuming after that there
is no more sales tax unless the
people vote it in. If we don't have
the sales tax, we would have to
take it out of the general fund or
not do it,"Kunik said, referring to
vehicle and equipment purchas-
es, among other items typically
funded with sales tax revenue.
The plan also uses a con-
servative 2 percent property
valuation increase, despite strong
indications of rising valuations
based on housing sales in 2013.
Valuations for the 2014-15 budget
are established as of January 2013.
Projections from the property ap-
praiser aren't due until late June,
but if Kunik is being conservative
with his 2 percent figure, it follows
that a higher valuation figure
wouldn't be unexpected. But even
it the figure is low and assuming
the City Council keeps the millage
rate at the current 3.1969 level,
higher costs would still outpace
slightly higher valuations.
For example, "operating
expenditures are forecasted for
an overall increase 8.4 percent,
including 10 percent for property/
liability insurance and 17 percent
for computer/info technology
support in FY2015," according to
the plan. Big-ticket cuts, such as
senior staff positions, are harder
to identify, so words like "wage
adjustments" hint at some broad-
based salary changes on top of
pension and benefit changes
employees have already endured.
The economy may be improv-
ing and homes sales rising, but
for a city with little industry and
no appetite for taxes, the next
few years are looking as lean as
ever. If the sales tax fails, whatever
investments the city has been


able to make as part of its ambi-
tious makeover will go away or be
funded with a property tax hike.

LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR


Why bury story
critical of Publix?

Editor:
On Jan. 16, Walmart,
the world's largest retailer,
signed onto the Coalition of
Immokalee Workers' Fair Food
Program. A UN representative
watched as Walmart pledged
to expand the Fair Food
Program to crops other than
tomatoes and to extend the
FFP beyond Florida. Walmart
joins McDonald's, Burger
King, Taco Bell, Chipotle,
Subway, Bon Appetit,
Trader Joe's, Whole Foods,
and food-servicing giants
Aramark, Sodexo, and The
Compass Group. But one of
the world's richest food retail-
ers Publix is noticeably
absent.
Over 21 years the CIW
has struggled to become a
powerful voice for justice and
human rights in the fields of
Florida, the nation, and the
world. In 2013 PBS Frontline
described the CIW as a
program that "takes on the
underbelly of American agri-
culture." In 2013 the CIW was
invited to speak at the White
House, at Geneva Switzerland
at a UN Conference, and in
other European countries,
and received a Roosevelt
Freedom award, joining
Presidents Harry Truman
and Jimmy Carter, Sen. Ted
Kennedy, Elie Wiesel, Nelson
Mandela, the Dalai Lama, and
Aung San Suu Kyi.
The Walmart story ran on
major TV, and in print, and
online news sources. But the
Sun buried it at the bottom of
an inside page of its second
section. Publix is a frequent
Sun advertiser and has
consistently refused to join
the CIW Fair Food Program.

converted what was once a
very city-compatible general
aviation airport to a big-jet
monster that now barrages
city residents with noisy
over-flights and airborne
pollution. Seay and Lee
readily admit that the current
airport operation is noisy,
but characterize any property
owner who complains as a
"rabble-rouser."
Airport Manager Gary
Quill is highly competent,
but he answers to the Airport
Authority commissioners.
They want the airlines to
have free rein in their flight
patterns. When I successfully
contacted the then-existing
airlines directly a few years
ago about their flight patterns,
Commissioner Seay actually
threatened to sue me, in
an email to the other com-
missioners! She apparently
has not heard of the First
Amendment.
Although commercial jet
service in this urban airport is
unnecessary with Fort Myers
and Sarasota close by, the
noise and pollution problem
could be easily minimized
if the authority did its job
to protect the public. It has
been pointed out that some
simple modifications to
arrival and departure flight
patterns would minimize
the problem. However, these
commissioners have abdicat-
ed their responsibility in favor
of allowing the airlines to
operate without restrictions.

Hiring, retirement shuffle personnel


congratulations to
Ty Harris on his
new position as the
director of our community
development department.
Mr. Harris already has
been serving the area
public as a Charlotte
County assistant county
attorney for the past year.
His background includes
more than 10 years of
community development
experience as well as 16
years of legal experience in
law firms and as a partner.
The current director of
community development,
Dan Quick, will be moving
to public works at the end
of this month when Alan
Holbach retires. Holbach
began his employment as
the maintenance and op-
erations manager and has
progressed to public works
director over his 15 years
of service to the county.
Quick has been with the
county since 1999, serving
as stormwater project man-
ager and then six years as
the county engineer until
taking on the position of
community development
director in 2011.
Early next month Fire


Chief Dennis DiDio is
retiring, too. Chief DiDio
has been with Charlotte
County for 27 years and
was promoted to director
and fire chief of the public
safety department in
2000, which is the longest
standing tenure of any
previous fire chief in
the history of Charlotte
County Fire/EMS.
Please join me in
congratulating the new
directors and extending
best wishes to our retiring
directors. Their leadership
and dedication to their
colleagues and the citi-
zens of Charlotte County
are greatly appreciated.

Weir project
The Fordham
and Niagara master


stormwater model is one
of several countywide
drainage basin models
produced and managed
under the direction of
the Charlotte County
Stormwater Utility. Major
waterways include the
Elkcam-Yale, Fordham and
Niagara waterways, which
cross under U.S. 41 and
carry surface water runoff
flows to the Peace River
and Charlotte Harbor.
During the 1950s
and '60s, General
Development Corporation
installed stormwater
infrastructure in Port
Charlotte and North
Port. While the drainage
system was sufficient at
the time of construction,
development in the area
has expanded over the
years increasing the
amount of stormwater
runoff and overburdened
the aging, substandard
system. The water
control structures, or
weirs, have also reached
their life expectancy.
Improvements are
needed to increase the
drainage capacity to allow
sufficient stormwater


runoff to flow toward
Charlotte Harbor. The
only way to increase flow
capacity under U.S. 41 is
to increase the size of the
pipes under the road -
they are the last restrictive
crossings within several
area waterways.
The U.S. 41 micro-
tunnel and weir project
is designed to increase
stormwater flow under
U.S. 41 at the Fordham,
Elkcam and Pompano
waterways. Drainage work
is currently underway
at the northbound and
southbound U.S. 41
access roads within the
Pompano Waterway sys-
tem. The contractor will
be using a state-of-the-art
microtunnel boring ma-
chine that was designed
and assembled specifical-
ly for this project.
Microtunneling is a
trenchless technology
used to construct
pipelines by consec-
utively pushing pipes
and the microtunnel
boring machine through
the ground using a
jacking system for
thrust. Excavated soil is


removed using a slurry
that counterbalances
groundwater and earth
pressures. This method
has a key advantage:
microtunneling under
U.S. 41 prevents roadway
closures on U.S. 41.
However, to facilitate
the project, the locations
of the access roads
right at the Pompano
Waterway are currently
closed and will be opened
to traffic as soon as work
progresses to a point
where motorists can safe-
ly utilize the road by the
waterway. County staff
members are working dil-
igently with the contrac-
tor to reduce the amount
of time the access roads
at the waterway are
closed. They are currently
projected to re-open in
May 2014. All businesses
are open along the access
road; signage is posted to
help motorists navigate
the area.
Why is this happening
now? To conduct work,
the waterways must be
blocked to allow the area
to be dewatered. This is
best done outside of the


rainy season so the water
flow in the canals can be
managed with pumps.
Once the rainy season
begins, dewatering a ca-
nal with pumps becomes
very difficult. In addition,
construction was original-
ly scheduled to begin the
end of November. It was
decided to wait until after
the December holidays so
that obstruction of the ac-
cess road at the Pompano
waterway would not
hinder businesses during
the holidays.

Annexation, flood insurance top council agenda


At today's City
Council meeting,
items that will
be discussed include re-
vised annexation criteria
and ranking of areas to
consider annexation as
well as flood insurance
mapping study overview
and options. A local
engineer will provide
City Council with the
advantages and possible
disadvantages of per-
forming such a study
and what ramifications it
might have on mitigating
rising flood insurance
premiums.

Citizen's Academy
The first session of
the Citizen's Academy
was held and covered
the administrative
operations of City
Council, city manager,
city attorney, city clerk,
human resources and
information technology.
Attendees addressed
questions to council
members and city staff
throughout the pre-
sentations concerning
such topics as sales tax
extension, groundwater
reverse osmosis water
treatment plant, city
website options, risk
management, employee
salary competitiveness
and marketing.

The plan represents the
initial step in the process
to formulate the FY
2015 annual budget and
five-year (FY2015-2019)

provides five-year fore-
casts for the major fund
groups; identifies options
to reduce projected bud-
get gaps; and includes
a review of adopted
financial management

for revisions. Please keep
in mind, staff uses con-

coupled with preliminary
projections for opera-
tional expense increases
that have not been pared
back. Two funds project
persistent budget gaps
through FY2018 gen-
eral and utilities.
The general fund gaps,
albeit lower than in previ-
ous years' forecasts, are in
the range of half a million
in FY2015 to $1.4 million
in FY2018. Staff has
already identified $235,000
in spending reductions
that could be used to
lower the FY2015 gap.
The utilities fund gaps
are caused by inclusion
of the reverse osmosis
water treatment plant
project at 25 percent grant
funding. Staff will explore
a combination of expen-
diture reductions and rate
increases to place the fund
on a sound financial basis.
The plan will be
formally presented and


discussed at the Feb. 5
council meeting.

Worden Farm a natural host


By AL HEMINGWAY
SUN CORRESPONDENT

PUNTAGORDA-
Artist and chef Jim
Denevan, founder of
Outstanding in the Field,
a Santa Cruz, Calif.-based
company that recognizes
organic farmers for the
crops they harvest, had a
brainstorm.
Why not allow consum-
ers and farmers to meet
on common ground an
actual farm and enjoy
a sumptuous organically
grown meal?
In 1998, he organized
a successful dinner at a
local restaurant where
local farmers gathered
and dishes were prepared
using the produce they
raised. The following
year, he tried something
unique bring the
restaurant patrons to
the farm itself- so they
could "celebrate the
farmer." The event was a
huge success.
Today, Outstanding in
the Field rents a bus and
criss-crosses the country
holding dinners at local
farms to continue the
tradition.
On Sunday, Chris and
EvaWorden, owners of
Worden Farm, hosted
their second such dinner.
Since 1998, the couple
had been farming along
the Connecticut shoreline
before moving to Florida,
where they began raising
crops using no pesticides
or synthetic fertilizers.
Worden Farm consists
of 85 acres of land, 38 of
which the Wordens use in
active crop production.
They raise more than
50 different vegetables,
everything from the more
common lettuce and

corn that you can find in
any supermarket to the
more unusual items like
squash blossoms and
daikon, an Asian root
vegetable. They have
a pair of 30-by-96-foot
greenhouses where the
crops are started before
being transplanted to the
different fields scattered
throughout the farm.
"These fields at
Worden Farm are some
of the most beautiful


the farmers can speak on
their own soil.
"Many people don't
realize what a farmer
goes through to raise
their crops the hard
work, the long hours, the
weather it gives them
a better appreciation of
what they do."
About 150 people
traveled from as far as
California to attend the
event. As guests waited
to be seated for dinner at
a 150-foot-long table sit-
uated in one of the farm's
fields, they mingled and
enjoyed a Florida Cracker
Beer from the Cigar City
Brewery, and sipped on
wines from Portugal,
Spain and France.
The appetizers were
prepared by River City
Grill executive chef Steve
Iadevaia. They included

Angela Katz said. "This is

the dinner and to visit

Graham said. "They are

dinner.
"My husband, Mike,
and I gave this as a
present to my aunt," she
said. "For the past three
years, we also buy shares
of produce from here."
Marty Mesh, execu-
tive director of Florida
Certified Growers, a
nonprofit that supports
organic farming, set up
a table and distributed
literature.
"I started in con-
ventional farming and
finally said there has got
to be a better way for the
sake of the environment
and for the consumers
that eat this food," he
said. "My group reaches
out to educate state and


local officials about
the benefits of organic
farming as well. We
also assist small and
medium-size farmers
with safety and public
policy."
Prior to the dinner,
the guests followed
Eva Worden as she led
them on a walking tour
of her farm, describing
the numerous fruits
and vegetables she
and her husband raise
organically.
"We started our farm
10 years ago and it's
been a wonderful ride
so far," she said. "We
are looking forward to
many more years here
and hosting events such
as these."

Senior Expo still going strong


By PAUL FALLON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
PUNTAGORDA -The
25th annual Senior Expo
at the Charlotte Harbor
Event & Conference
Center isn't all fun and
games to Punta Gorda
resident Don Backer.
Backer, 75, discussed
an insurance policy
with an expert during
the exposition's first day
Tuesday.
"That information was
very helpful," Backer
said. "If I don't get any
more information here
than that, it's still worth
it."
But Backer didn't
just walk away from
the exposition only
with information about
insurance policies, he
said. He also purchased a

pair of diabetic shoes at
the event.
"I got a pair of diabetic
shoes last time I was
here, and I got another
pair here today," Backer
said with a smile.
"They're really nice."
The exposition has
been providing seniors
with important informa-
tion for a quarter-centu-
ry, said David Pardi, sales
manager for Expo Trade


Shows, the company
organizing The event.
About 50 booths with
vendors selling every-
thing from cellphones
for seniors to diabetic
shoes and cookware
were set up at the Event
Center for the two-day
exposition.
Pardi estimated that
between six to 12 ven-
dors attended the first
event 25 years ago.
"The Senior Expo has
grown steadily," he said.
However, the recession
took its toll on the expo-
sition, Pardi added. That
was because healthcare
providers began receiv-
ing government assis-
tance. Therefore, they
could no longer afford
the fee to set up at the
exposition, he said.
"But we're still there,


we're still going strong,
and we're still providing
services for seniors,"
Pardi said.
Daniel Wyszczelski, 71,
of Port Charlotte, came
to his first exposition
Tuesday. Wyszczelski was
looking at water filters,
and his wife was also
checking out walk-in
tubs for his mother-in-
law, he said.
He was happy with the
number of vendors at the
exposition.
"There's a lot of infor-
mation available here,"
Wyszczelski said.
However, he did notice
the lack of healthcare
booths at the event.
"This is all good, but
they need more health-
care vendors here," he
said. "Everyone has
healthcare concerns."


Anita Salve, 64, of
Punta Gorda, has come
to at least five Senior
Expos over the years. She
also hopes to see more
healthcare providers in
the future.
"I'd like to see it get
bigger than this," she
said.
Along with healthcare
provider booths, Salve
said, she would also like
to see vendors selling
items such as eating
utensils for those with
physical disabilities.
"They need more
vendors selling stuff
that makes life easier for
seniors," she said.
Jerry Payton and his
wife, Darlene, were on
hand demonstrating
cookware and healthy
cooking techniques at
the event. The Paytons,


of North Fort Myers,
travel to expositions
all over the country for
Wisconsin-based Kitchen
Craft.
"We give a lot of health
tips, and we talk about
cooking and eating
healthy," Jerry Payton
said.
Financial planning is
another important as-
pect of senior living, said
Stef Loisou, a financial
consultant with Financial
Strategies for Life in Port
Charlotte. Loisou was on
hand to discuss financial
planning with seniors at
the event.
"People are living lon-
ger and we want to make
sure they can provide
for themselves and their
family for their entire
life," Loisou said.


Annual county education breakfast Thursday


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER
CHARLOTTE COUNTY
-What does the
county's annual State
of Education Breakfast
have to offer?
"Well, first of all, the
breakfast is good," said
Mary Fred Clemmons,
Charlotte Local
Education Foundation
director.
The breakfast, to
which CLEF plays
host, is an occasion for


community members
to get information on
the performance of
Charlotte County Public
Schools, and to hear
what the district's plans
are for the future.
A buffet breakfast will
be catered by Charlotte
Technical Center's
Culinary Arts program.
In addition,
Clemmons said, the
breakfast is a good
"time for people to talk
briefly with chamber (of
commerce) members,


businesspeople and
leaders in community."
CCPS superintendent
Doug Whittaker will
make a presentation
at the breakfast. In it,
attendees are "going to
learn about our strategic


plan for addressing our
flat reading scores, our
drop in math scores,
and what we're doing
with science, technology,
engineering and math
(STEM), and what we're
doing with leadership


development," he said.
"I'm going to spend
more time this year on
where we're going than
where we've been, so it's
going to be looking more
to the future," Whittaker
added.
After the presentation,
he will answer questions
from the audience about
education.
The event is set
for 7:30 a.m. to
8:30 a.m. Thursday at
the Charlotte Technical
Center auditorium,


18150 Murdock Circle,
Murdock.
Tickets are $10 per per-
son, and can be purchased
online at www.charlotte
schoolfoundation.org.
Tickets also will be sold at
the door.

PARK
FROM PAGE 1

Construction will be
completed in four phases
- the first of which calls
for moving some 340,000
yards of dirt to make way
for 53 acres of parking
lots, a five-lane entrance
into the park and 3.5
miles of roadways,
including a designated
emergency lane for Fire/
EMS, Ketterman said.
In addition, the com-
pany must complete its
stormwater management
plan, which consists
of building four lakes
spread across 50 acres.
"All that has to be
done before we can start
the build-out for the
amphitheater and tracks
and trails, and so forth,"


MORE
INFORMATION
Florida Tracks and Trails is
located at 39450 Bermont Road,
east of Punta Gorda. For more
information, call 239-567-1089,
or visit the company website
at www.floridatracksandtrails.
com.

Ketterman said. "It's a
huge undertaking."
Track officials expect
phase one to be com-
plete by the end of the
year, although a grand
opening has yet to be
determined.
"We don't want to
publish a date yet, just
because with con-
struction, anything can
happen," Ketterman said.
The Tracks and Trails
facility is the long-held
dream of co-owner
Terry Cooke, who grew


up ATVing in the area.
Cooke's partner, Mike
Greenwell, is a former
Boston Red Sox left
fielder who owns Mike
Greenwell's Bat-A-Ball &
Family Fun Park in Cape
Coral.
"This is the first
venture for them,"
Ketterman said. "It has
been a dream of the
owners for many years.


(Cooke) was born and
raised in the area, and
raised his family in the
area. He's had a passion
for ATVing and the
outdoors, and there was
never a safe place for
him to go, or his family
to go."
Owners, however,
don't want Tracks and
Trails to be confused
with the Redneck Yacht


FLORIDA TRACKS AND TRAILS
Once complete, Florida Tracks and Trails will feature:
A 15,000-seat outdoor amphitheater
Several professionally designed tracks, including a Motocross
Track, a Motocross & Supercross Mixed Track, an ATV/UTV Track, a
Beginner & Youth Track, a Peewee Track and a Mud Course
26 miles of one-directional ORV trails
500-plus RV slips for singles, doubles and quads (no primitive
camping will be offered)
S40-acre paintball park
A Recreation Lake with a freshwater beach, slides, rope swings, a
designated swim area, a music pavilion and more
Zip lines


Club, a nearby outdoor
venue that has come
under scrutiny in recent
years for allegations of
underage drinking and
drunken driving.
"We are aware of
the obvious concerns
regarding public safe-
ty," Ketterman said.
"That's our number one
priority."
A medical facility
staffed with medical pro-
fessionals will be built on
the property, and trained
safety staff will work
during operating hours,
Ketterman said. There
also will be a helipad
for emergency medical
transportation.
"We have ... zero
tolerance for drinking
and driving," Ketterman
said, adding no coolers
will be allowed in the
amphitheater, on the

with the familiar sounds
of their puffy exhales.
There are several obser-
vation areas, including
one lagoon-like area
where there is a special
speaker that allows
guests to listen to the
manatees communicate
underwater.
The second way to
see the manatees is
via kayak or canoe.
Manatees literally sur-
face right next to kayaks
and canoes, sometimes
even nosing the ves-
sels. Definitely bring a
camera if you go out on
the water.
You can bring your
own kayak/canoe to
the park, or you can
rent ones from Calusa
Blueway Outfitters.
Single kayaks go for
$15 an hour or $40 for
three hours; tandem
kayaks can be rented for
$25 an hour or $60 for
three hours. Two-person
canoes are available
for $20 an hour or $55
for three hours; and
three-person canoes
are available for $25 an


hour or $60 for three
hours. All rentals are
available from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m. daily, and include
paddles, life jackets and
whistles.
There is no fee to enter
the park, but there is a
small one for parking. It
costs $2 an hour or
$5 for the day.
There is a small gift
shop with manatee
postcards, ornaments,
T-shirts, photos and oth-
er manatee-related gifts.
And if the little ones need
to get rid of some more
energy before leaving
Manatee Park, there is a

FUN MANATEE FACTS
A manatee can hold its breath for up to 20 minutes, but usually
surfaces about every three to five minutes.
The average manatee weighs 1,000 pounds and is 10 feet long.
Manatees eat up to 100 pounds of vegetation every day.
Their flippers are similar to human hands, and they even have nails
but only three or four.
Manatees have only six neck vertebrae unlike most mammals that
have seven. This means that manatees can't turn their heads sideways.

'Black widows' spur Olympic fears


By JIM HEINTZ
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
MOSCOW The search for three
women suspected of planning terror-
ist attacks at the 2014 Sochi Winter
Olympics has raised one of Russia's
most feared specters the female
suicide bombers known as "black
widows." For more than a decade,
women have committed many of
Russia's worst terror attacks, downing
airliners, blowing up subway cars
and killing people going to a rock
concert.
The term "black widow" refers to
the belief that these women took


the desperate step of becoming
suicide bombers in order to avenge
husbands or male relatives killed in
Russia's long fight against Islamic
militants in the Caucasus region.
Russian police leaflets circulating in
the Olympic host city of Sochi say
that one of the women suspected
of planning an attack at the Winter
Olympics is the widow of a militant.
But there have been cases where the
bombers' husbands were alive at the
time of their attacks, and one failed
bomber said it was shame and a lack
of money that drove her to terrorism.

Snow socks Northeast

Fast-accumulating white stuff produces blizzard conditions in places

PHILADELPHIA-
A swirling snowstorm
clobbered parts of the
mid-Atlantic and the
urban Northeast on
Tuesday, grounding thou-

government offices in the
nation's capital and mak-
ing a mess of the evening
commute.
The storm stretched
1,000 miles between
Kentucky and

especially hard along
the heavily populated
Interstate 95 corridor
between Philadelphia and
Boston, creating perilous
rides home for millions of
motorists.
The National Oceanic

10 inches of snow had
fallen just outside
Philadelphia in Drexel Hill
by Tuesday evening and
there was about 6 inches
in Philadelphia. The
National Weather Service
said parts of New York City
also had about 6 inches.
The snow came down
harder and faster than
many people expected.
Forecasters said some
places could get 1 to 2
inches an hour, with wind
gusts up to 50 mph. A bliz-
zard warning was posted
for parts of Massachusetts,
including Cape Cod.
Highways in the New
York City metropolitan
area were jammed, and
blowing snow tripled or
even quadrupled drive
times.

2 nabbed at Texas border


in credit card fraud case


McALLEN, Texas (AP)
-Two Mexican citizens
who were arrested at
the border used account
information stolen
during the Target security
breach to buy tens of
thousands of dollars'
worth of merchandise,
according to a South
Texas police chief.
But a spokesman for
the U.S. Secret Service
said Tuesday that an
investigation is ongoing
into the possibility of a
link between the Target
data breach and the
arrests in Texas.
One day earlier,
McAllen Police Chief
Victor Rodriguez said
Mary Carmen Garcia, 27,
and Daniel Guardiola

Monterrey, Mexico, had
used cards containing
the account information
of South Texas residents
stolen from Target.
Rodriguez said they
were used to purchase
numerous items at
national retailers in the
area including Best Buy,
Walmart and Toys R Us.
"They're obviously
selling the data sets by
region," Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez didn't
immediately return calls
for comment Tuesday.

High-income hit hardest by tax changes


WASHINGTON (AP) -
Higher-income Americans
are likely to feel the
biggest hits from tax law
changes when they file
their federal returns in
the next few months.
Taxpayers also will have
a harder time taking
medical deductions.
In other changes for
the 2013 tax year, the
Alternative Minimum Tax
has been patched per-
manently to prevent
more middle-income
people from being drawn
in, and there's a simpler
way to compute the home
office deduction.
Tax rate tables and the
standard deduction have
been adjusted for infla-
tion, as has the maximum
contribution to retirement
accounts, including 401 (k)
plans and Individual
Retirement Accounts.
The provisions were set
by Congress last January as
part of legislation to avert
the fiscal cliff of tax increas-
es and spending cuts.
Nevertheless, the filing
season is being delayed
because of the two-week
government shutdown
last October. The Internal
Revenue Service says it
needs the extra time to
ensure that systems are in
place and working. People
will be able to start filing
returns Jan. 31, a week
and a half later than the
original Jan. 21.
No change in the
April 15 deadline, however.
That's set by law and will
remain in place, the IRS
says.

High-income
The tax legislation
passed at the start of 2013
permanently extended
the Bush-era tax cuts for
most people, but also
added a top marginal tax
rate of 39.6 percent for
those at higher incomes
-$400,000 for single
filers, $450,000 for married
couples filing jointly and
$425,000 for heads of
household.
On top of that, higher-
income taxpayers could
see their itemized de-
ductions and personal
exemptions phased out
and pay higher capital

form at H & R Block tax preparation office in the E(


district of Los Angeles.

gains taxes 20 percent
for some taxpayers. And
there are new taxes for
them to help pay for health
care reform.
There are different
income thresholds for each
of these new taxes.
An additional 0.9
percent Medicare tax,
for example, kicks in on
earnings over $250,000
for married couples filing
jointly and $200,000 for
singles and heads of
household. Same for a 3.8
percent tax on investment
income.
But the phase-out of
personal exemptions and
deductions doesn't begin
until $300,000 for married
couples filing jointly and
$250,000 for singles.
Taxpayers who didn't
plan could find them-
selves with big tax bills
come April 15 and
perhaps penalties for
under-withholding.
"The complexities of the
tax code are only affecting
those of us trying to read
it," National Taxpayer
Advocate Nina Olson said
in an interview. Tax soft-
ware makes a lot of those
complexities invisible to
most people.
As a result, taxpayers
might not realize they're
being helped by a wide
array of deductions and
credits. "They have no
idea of the benefits they
are getting through the tax
code," she said.

Many of these are phased

levels.
Schoolteachers will

to $250 in out-of-pocket
expenses for books or
other supplies.

The IRS processed
more than 147 million
tax returns in 2013, down
slightly from the previous
year. More than 109 million
taxpayers received refunds
that averaged $2,744, also
slightly less than in 2012.
The upward trend of
electronic filing continued,
with more than 83 percent
of returns being filed
online. The biggest jump,
4.6 percent, was among
people who used software
programs to do their own
taxes.
The IRS is continuing to
offer its Free File option,
which is available to
taxpayers with adjusted
gross incomes of $58,000
or less. These taxpayers
can use brand-name
software to file their taxes
at no cost.
For the 2013 tax year,
the personal exemption
is $3,900. The standard
deduction is $12,200 for
married taxpayers filing
jointly, $6,100 for singles,
and $8,950 for heads of
household.

Education
Many credits and
deductions were extend-
ed for 2013, including
several for education.
Among them: the
American Opportunity


until 2017.

Home office
Among the other
changes for 2013, taxpay-
ers who work at home
will now have a simplified
option for taking a home
office deduction.
"You can claim this
deduction for the business
use of a part of your home
only if you use that part of
your home regularly and
exclusively," the IRS says.
But, if you sit at your
kitchen table and check
work email, it doesn't
qualify. "The regular
and exclusive business
use must be for the
convenience of your
employer and not just
appropriate and helpful
in your job," according
to the agency.
Until this year, you had
to figure actual expenses
for a home office, accord-
ing to Barbara Weltman,
a contributing editor to
"J.K. Lasser's Your Income
Tax 2014. "Starting with
2013 returns, if you're
eligible for the deduction,
you can take a standard
deduction of $5 per
square foot, up to 300
square feet," she said.
The maximum deduction
using this method is
$1,500.

Bombardier

Verizon beats
estimates
(Bloomberg) -Verizon
Communications, the
second-largest U.S.
phone company, reported
fourth-quarter profit that
beat analysts' estimates as
customers' wireless bills
increased even as compe-
tition intensified.
Earnings were 66 cents a
share, leaving out one-
time expenses, the New
York-based company said
Tuesday in a statement.
Analysts had estimated


about 65 cents on aver-
age, according to data
compiled by Bloomberg.
Verizon added 1.6 million
monthly subscribers, fewer
than the record 2.1 million
gained a year earlier. The
average estimate was for
1.3 million new subscrib-
ers, based on a Bloomberg
survey of nine analysts.


The average mobile-
phone bill increased 7.1
percent to $157.21. The
results ease concerns that
Verizon, the largest U.S.
wireless carrier, was feeling
an impact from the pricing
moves of smaller T-Mobile
US Inc. With its cheaper
plans, free international
roaming and buyout
offers to customers that
switch from other carriers,
T-Mobile has added more
than 2 million monthly

icism of the Republican
governor
amid inves-

dal that has
S led to other

of abuse of
CHRISTIE power.
"It wasn't
just some of our people
who affirmed this course.
It was not a vocal plu-
rality like four years ago.
No, this time, it was the
largest and loudest voice
of affirmation that the

said. "We have no moral
option but to heed the

that is exactly what I
intend to do."
Halliburton
manager gets
probation in spill
NEW ORLEANS (AP)
- A former Halliburton
manager apologized to
his family and friends
Tuesday before a federal
judge sentenced him to
one year of probation
for destroying evidence
in the aftermath of BP's
massive 2010 oil spill in
the Gulf of Mexico.
Anthony Badalamenti,
of Katy, Texas, had faced a
maximum of one year in
prison at his sentencing
by U.S. District Judge
Jay Zainey. Badalamenti
pleaded guilty in October
to one misdemeanor
count of destruction of
evidence.
The 62-year-old also
has to perform 100 hours
of community service and
pay a $1,000 fine.
Badalamenti was the
cementing technology
director for Halliburton
Energy Services Inc., BP's

the Deepwater Horizon
drilling rig. Prosecutors
said he instructed two
Halliburton employees to
delete data during a post-

IMF says global
economy is
strengthening
WASHINGTON (MCT)
- The global economy
is gaining momentum
and should post its best
growth in three years,
thanks largely to a
strengthening U.S. econo-
my, says the International
Monetary Fund.
Joining others such
as the World Bank that
have recently upgraded
forecasts for global
growth, the IMF's latest
outlook, issued Tuesday,
projects the U.S. econ-
omy expanding at a
healthy 2.8 percent rate
this year. That's up from
an estimated 1.9 percent
growth pace in 2013 and
0.2 percentage points
higher than its last
forecast in October.
"U.S. growth appears
increasingly solid," said
Olivier Blanchard, the
IMF's chief economist.
The Washington-based
fund also sharply upgrad-
ed its growth forecast for
Britain and Japan, two
other major advanced
economies. Combined,
rich-nation economies
will grow at a 2.2 percent
pace this year, from an
estimated 1.3 percent
in 2013, the IMF said,
helping fuel a 3.7 per-
cent increase in overall
economic output for the
world, from a 3 percent
rate in 2013.

Gunmen release
57 de-miners in
west Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan
(AP) A group of 57
civilian de-miners was
released on Tuesday just
hours after being after
captured by unknown
gunmen in western
Afghanistan, officials said.
The governor of Herat
province, Faizullah
Wahidi, said the de-min-
ers all Afghan were
released unconditionally
after being abducted
in the Pashtun Zargun
district as they drove to
an area that needed to be
cleared of mines.
Wahidi did not know
who kidnapped the
de-miners or why. He said
police were investigating.
All the men worked for
the British-based HALO
trust, which specializes
in removing hazardous
mines and other ordi-
nance left over from wars.
HALO confirmed the
kidnapping and release.
After 30 years of near
continuous conflict and
war, Afghanistan is one of
the most heavily mined
countries in the world.

Pakistani jets hit
militant hideouts
in northwest

DERA ISMAIL KHAN,
Pakistan (AP) Pakistani
fighter jets pounded mil-
itant positions overnight
in the country's north-
west following a Taliban
bombing campaign
against security forces,
military officials and
residents said Tuesday.
The strikes are likely to
hamper the government's
efforts to hold peace
talks with the militant
group.
Also Tuesday, a road-
side car bomb hit a bus
of Shiite pilgrims return-
ing from Iran, killing 20
and wounding over 30,
in restive Baluchistan
province, said a top
security official.
There were conflicting
claims about who was
killed in the airstrikes
which took place in
North Waziristan,
a stronghold of the
Pakistani Taliban as well
as other militant groups.
A military official
said the strikes targeted
militants and killed 25 of
them. The official spoke
on condition of anonym-
ity because he was not

Korea's biggest card-data theft triggers


resignations amid probe


SEOUL (Bloomberg)
- South Korea's big-
gest theft of personal
information on credit
card holders prompted
dozens of top executives
at financial firms includ-
ing KB Financial Group
to offer to quit this week
as a regulatory probe
widened.
Lee Kun Ho, chief ex-
ecutive officer of Korea's
largest bank, was among
27 executives who sent
resignation letters to KB
Financial CEO Lim Young
Rok, an official at the
Seoul-based company
said Monday, asking not
to be named in accor-
dance with company pol-
icy. Nine officials at Lotte
Card Co. also offered to
quit, that company said
in an emailed statement.
The breaches triggered

probes this month in
a country where credit
cards are used for more
than half of total con-
sumer spending. South
Korean prosecutors have
indicted three people
on suspicion of stealing
names, Social Security
numbers and card
data tied to millions of
customers of Lotte Card,
KB Kookmin Card Co.,
and Nonghyup Bank.
"The incidents will
probably hurt the firms'
brand value and lead
them to incur one-time
costs such as fines and
compensation," said
Michael Na, a Seoul-
based analyst at Nomura
Holdings Inc. "It will spur
regulators' demands that
financial companies pro-
tect consumers, which
isn't necessarily positive
for earnings."


While there's no
evidence that the leaked
information has been
misused, the card
companies will fully
compensate victims for
any damage, Financial
Services Commission
Chairman Shin Je Yoon
told reporters Monday,
according to an emailed
statement. The regulator
will consider revising
rules to seek stricter
punishment including
fines, he said.
One of the people
charged was a software
engineer who was
working for the three
firms from May 2012 to
December 2013 and who
copied client information
onto a USB device before
selling it to loan com-
panies, the prosecutors'
service said on Jan. 8.
A total of 106 million


pieces of information
were transferred, the
Financial Supervisory
Service said in a
Jan. 19 statement.
About 20 million card
holders at Lotte Card
and Nonghyup Bank
and 40 million at KB
Kookmin Card were
affected, the FSS said.
The estimate may
include overlaps for
multiple card holders
or former customers.
The FSS said on
Jan. 19 that it began
probing operations
at Kookmin Bank, the
nation's largest lender,
in relation to informa-
tion breaches at the
card unit. It ordered 14
other financial firms to
examine possible data
theft, without disclos-
ing the names of the
institutions.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)-
Former Virginia Gov. Bob
McDonnell, once viewed
as a rising star in the GOP,
and his wife were indicted
Tuesday on federal cor-
ruption charges accusing
the couple of accepting
tens of thousands of

Russia vows it will not allow breakup of Ukraine


WORLD NEWS


WIRE Page 5


MOSCOW (LA Times) Russia
will not allow the breakup of
neighboring Ukraine and, if invit-
ed, is ready to mediate the violent
conflict between street protesters
and the leadership of the former
Soviet republic, Foreign Minister
Sergei Lavrov said Tuesday.
"Russia will do its utmost
to help prevent (the breakup
of Ukraine) and to stabilize
the situation," Lavrov said at a
news conference in Moscow,
without elaborating on what
actions Moscow might take.
"Ukraine is our neighbor,
partner, friend and brother and
there can be no two opinions."
With the divisions in Ukraine
rooted in part over the question
of whether to tie the country's
future more closely to Russia or


the West, Lavrov lashed out at
Western Europeans he accused
of interfering in Ukraine's
internal affairs by supporting
protesters in the streets of Kiev,
the capital.
"We would prefer some of
our European colleagues not to
behave so unceremoniously in
connection with Ukraine's crisis,
when members of a number of
Europe's governments without
any invitations dashed to
(Kiev's Independence Square)
to take part in anti-govern-
ment demonstrations in the
country with which they have
diplomatic relations," he said.
"It is simply improper and it is
heating up the situation."
The protests in Kiev began
in November when President


ViktorYanukovich refrained from
signing a trade and association
agreement with the European
Union. They had largely been
peaceful in recent weeks but
erupted into violence Sunday.
Dozens of people have been
injured on both sides in three
days of clashes between protest-
ers and riot police. Grushevsky
Street, which houses government
buildings, has been turned into a
virtual war zone, with hundreds
of protesters hurling bricks,
cobblestones, flares and Molotov
cocktails, and several thousand
police responding with stunning
noise grenades, rubber bullets
and water cannons.
Lavrov argued that Europeans
would not tolerate such violence
in their nations.


"Pogroms, attacks on the
police, arsons, Molotov cocktails,
explosive devices, it is horrible,
it is an absolute violation of all
European norms of conduct," he
said. "I think that calls for com-
mon sense coming today from
the leaders of the opposition and
personally from (Ukrainian op-
position leader) Vitali Klitschko
demonstrate that the situation is
going out of control."
The third day of violence
on Tuesday also produced the
first signs that both sides were
growing weary of the confronta-
tion, with the number of clashes
and the ranks of protesters and
police significantly diminished.
Demonstrators nonetheless
advanced to the line of
charred police buses on snowy

into their front line. The police
formed a new line of defense
blocking the street with more
buses and trucks 20 yards away.
The Interior Ministry said
163 police officers had been
injured since Sunday, 80 of them
hospitalized. Kiev health authori-
ties said 122 protesters had been
hurt and 40 of them hospitalized.
Thirty-two protesters had been
arrested, police reported.
Promised talks between the
government and opposition
leaders failed to begin. Klitschko,
a former world heavyweight
boxing champion, arrived early
in the afternoon to meet with
Yanukovich at the presidential
offices but left after he was kept
waiting.

Extinction threatens
sharks and rays
on Red List
LONDON (Bloomberg
News) -A quarter of the
world's sharks and rays are
probably threatened with
extinction, according to the
most extensive assessment
of the marine species.
Thresher sharks, sawfish-
es and angel sharks are the
most threatened families,
according to a study by the
International Union for the
Conservation of Nature,
which publishes the Red
List of endangered species.
A total of 25 species had
the highest risk level and
were deemed "critically
endangered."
"Our analysis shows that
sharks and their relatives
are facing an alarmingly
elevated risk of extinction,"
Nick DuIvy, a researcher at
Simon Fraser University in
British Columbia, Canada,
and co-chair of the IUCN's
Shark Specialist Group, said
in an emailed statement.
"In greatest peril are the
largest species of rays and
sharks, especially those
living in shallow water that
is accessible to fisheries."

5 killed by suicide
bomber in Beirut
LEBANON (Bloomberg
News) -A suicide bomb
killed at least five people in
Beirut's southern suburb, a
residential neighborhood
that's also the main strong-
hold of Hezbollah, the
latest in a string of attacks
in Lebanon as sectarian
violence escalates.
Two women were among
the dead, Hezbollah's Al
Manar television reported.
The attacker was probably


driving a white KIA vehicle,
according to the state-run
National News Agency,
which said at least 26
people were wounded.
The civil war in neigh-
boring Syria has deepened
rifts between Sunni and
Shiite Muslims in Lebanon,
leading to a wave of attacks
against religious, civilian
and political targets.
Hezbollah, an Iranian-
backed militant group,
acknowledged last year that
its fighters were supporting
Syrian President Bashar
al-Assad against the mainly
Sunni rebels.

Dolphin hunters
kill 41 animals
in Japan
TOKYO (Bloomberg
News) More than 40
bottlenose dolphins were
killed today during an
annual hunt in Japan, the
conservation group Sea
Shepherd said, three days
after U.S. Ambassador
Caroline Kennedy criticized
the cull.
A total of 93 animals were
taken from the ocean in the
past five days by hunters
in the coastal town of Taiji,
and 41 of them were killed
Tuesday, Sea Shepherd
activists known as the
Cove Guardians said on an
official Facebook page.
Kennedy, who took up
the post of ambassador to
Japan in November, and
singer Yoko Ono Lennon
are among those who have
spoken out against this
year's hunt. Environmental
groups decry the annual
dolphin slaughter, depicted
in 2009's Oscar-winning
documentary "The Cove,"
as inhumane. Japan defends
it as a cultural tradition.

Israelis wary over
Iran nuclear deal
JERUSALEM (LA Times)
-At a cafe in Jerusalem,
Giora Shamis greeted the
announcement that Iran
has begun rolling back its
nuclear program with a
shake of his head.
"I don't believe a word
they say," said Shamis,
who runs a news analysis
website. "Iran's influence is
on the march and Israel's
strategic position is shrink-
ing. I ask myself now, 'Who
is calling the shots in the
Middle East?'"
While much of the world
watched with cautious
optimism as an interim
deal designed to limit Iran's
enrichment of uranium
went into effect Monday,
the tone in Israel was one of
skepticism.

Soap's suicide
storyline draws
praise, concern
LONDON (AP) -It was
one of the gentlest deaths
in soap-opera history, but
it has provoked a strong
reaction in Britain.
More than 10 million peo-
ple watched the long-run-
ning soap "Coronation
Street" on Monday as
Hayley Cropper, sick with
incurable pancreatic cancer,
took an overdose of drugs
and died in the arms of her
husband Roy.
Some praised the
storyline for its sensitive
handling of terminal illness
and death, but others said it
risked encouraging suicides.

Venezuela's president blames

soap operas for crime


CARACAS, Venezuela
(AP) President Nicolas
Maduro has a new
villain as he campaigns
to bring down Venezuela's
spiraling crime: TV soap
operas. He accuses the
telenovelas of spreading
"anti-values" to young
people by glamorizing
violence, guns and drugs.
The criticism follows at-
tacks last year by Maduro
on violent video games
and the Hollywood movie
"Spider-Man."
On Monday night,
his vice president, Jorge
Arreaza, met with broad-
cast and pay TV operators
to review the prime time
lineup, warning that they
could be in violation of
a 2004 law mandating
"socially responsible"
programming. The two
sides will meet in a week
with the aim of drafting
an agreement on meeting
those obligations.
It's unclear whether
the government will take
steps to restrict program-
ming or impose harsher
rules on telenovelas,
which are hugely popular
across Latin America.
Analysts say arm-twist-
ing is unlikely to reduce
Venezuela's high ho-
micide rate, which the
United Nations ranks
as the fifth worst glob-
ally, and they warn that
Maduro's campaign could

be used as an excuse to
further gag media criti-
cism of the government.
"It's a smoke screen to
distract attention away
from the real causes"
of violence and crime,
said Roberto Briceno
Leon of the Venezuelan
Observatory of Violence,
which estimates the
country's murder rate has
quadrupled in 15 years of
socialist rule.
Pressure on the gov-
ernment to crack down


on crime heated up this
month after former Miss
Venezuela Monica Spear
and her ex-husband were
shot to death by robbers,
with their 5-year-old
daughter looking on.
The double slaying
shocked even
Venezuelans hardened by
rampant bloodshed and
put the government on
the defensive on an issue
that surveys say is the
biggest concern among
voters.

Mixed earnings restrict stocks


NEWYORK (AP) -The
Standard & Poor's 500
index logged a small gain
Tuesday on a mixed day
for the stock market.
Health-care giant
Johnson & Johnson
slipped after it warned
that pressure to keep
prices low would likely
mean slightly lower
profits than forecast.
Delta Air Lines gained
after reporting a bet-
ter-than-expected profit
in the fourth quarter as
fares and traffic rose.
Company earnings
were the main focus for
investors Tuesday as there
were no major economic
releases. So far, the stock


market has failed to get
a big lift from earnings
reports and investors
appear to be assessing
the results more critically
than they did a year ago.
"Earnings are coming
in and, candidly, we're
getting a mixture picture
for the fourth quarter so
far," said Jim Russell, an
investment director at
U.S. Bank.
The Standard & Poor's
500 rose 5.10 points, or
0.3 percent, to 1,843.80.
The Dow Jones indus-
trial average fell 44.12
points, or 0.3 percent, to
16,414.44. The Nasdaq
composite edged up
28.18 points, or 0.7


percent, to 4,225.76.
J&J, one of the 30 mem-
bers of the Dow, slipped
$1.03, or 1.1 percent, to
$94.03, helping pull the
index lower. Another
Dow component, Verizon
Communications, fell
after reporting its own
earnings.
Among the day's win-
ners were Dow Chemical
and Alcoa.
Dow Chemical rose
$2.86, or 6.6 percent,
to $45.93 after hedge
fund Third Point LLC
said Tuesday that it has
acquired a significant
stake in the company
and wants it to spin off its
petrochemicals division.


Alcoa surged 77 cents,
or 6.8 percent, to $12.13
after analysts at JPMorgan
raised their price target
for the stock, predicting
Alcoa will benefit from
tightening aluminum
markets.
After surging almost 30
percent last year, stocks
are starting the year in a
more subdued fashion.
The S&P 500 is down 0.3
percent for the year.
In bond trading, the
yield on the 10-year
Treasury note rose to 2.83
percent from 2.82 percent
on Friday. U.S. markets
were closed Monday for
the Martin Luther King Jr.
Day holiday.


It's not Microsoft calling

As ridiculous as the

sound, folks are receiving
phone calls that follow

out this column and
tape it to the monitor.
Microsoft will never
call regarding the error

report the same problem,
Microsoft may create and
update and send it out to
every computer con-
nected to the Internet to
resolve the issue. If you
receive a call from some-
one claiming to be from
Microsoft, hang up. Or, if
you're bored, lead them
on, tell them to repeat
what they said, say the
keyboard doesn't work,
or any other ridiculous
thing you can think up.
But do not let them have
control of the PC.
On the other hand, if
there really is a problem,
consider a local as
in Charlotte County,
not Manila tech to
help with a resolution.
If having the work done
remotely is important,
it's just as simple to fix
a computer remotely
from Punta Gorda as it is
from Bombay. Forward

everyone they know.

any part of Windows XP
XP will fade away as the
older PCs move to the

Those of us who
recently have purchased

being nagged to create

Pay the IRS first!


ear Dave: My hus-
band has his own
business installing
windows. As a result, we
now have IRS and state
tax debt. We're managing
the payments, but where
should these debts be
placed in the debt snow-
ball plan? Olivia
Dear Olivia: I don't
usually cheat on the
smallest to largest
progression of the debt
snowball, but I'd recom-
mend moving these debts
to the top of the list.
Both state and federal
taxes come with ridicu-
lous penalties and interest
rates, and the authorities
at either level have
virtually unlimited power
at their disposal to screw
with your life if something
bad happens. The IRS can
actually take your money
without suing you. So,
you don't want to become
a blip on their radar
screen by being late with
payments.
Get it cleaned up as
quickly as possible, Olivia.
You don't want to mess
around with these guys!
-Dave

Dear Dave: My hus-
band died eight years ago,
and I never closed his
bank accounts that were
opened when we lived in
another state. We lived in
Florida before moving to
Oregon. I didn't probate
the estate, and he did not
have a will. I'm trying to
work with the banks to
get this settled, but they're
giving me the runaround.
Do you have any advice?
- Melinda
Dear Melinda: The first
thing you need to do is
contact an attorney who
handles estate planning.
If the accounts were
opened in Florida, but
you both lived in Oregon
at the time of his death,
technically the estate


would be probated in
Oregon. That may be
what has to happen. If so,
a judge would appoint
you as executor. As
executor, you can close
the accounts and disperse
any money to the rightful
heir-which is you.
Be prepared, though.
It may take somewhere
between $250 and $500
in attorney fees and court
costs to make this hap-
pen. If you're lucky, you
might get a simple motion
from the court that would
cost you next to nothing.
But find a good estate
planning attorney who
knows Oregon law inside
and out. Estate laws and
probate laws differ from
state to state, and Florida
and Oregon both have
some weird laws in these
areas.
This probably seems
like a lot of trouble, but
you have to remember the
banks are simply trying
to protect themselves and
follow the law. Anyone
could walk in with a death
certificate (they're public
record), and claim to be
an heir. So, they have to
have a court document
in order to avoid any
potential liability.
I'm sorry for your loss,
Melinda. I know it still
hurts after all this time,
but you need to address
this as soon as possible.
I'm sure it's what your
husband would have
wanted. Dave

6gay couples sue to overturn marriage ban


MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) Six
gay couples filed a lawsuit Tuesday
seeking to overturn Florida's ban on
same-sex marriage, the latest in a
series of cases across the country that
contend such prohibitions are uncon-
stitutional and effectively relegate gay
partners to second-class status.
The lawsuit was filed in Miami-
Dade Circuit Court on behalf of the
couples by Equality Florida Institute
Inc., a civil rights organization that
works for fairness for gay, lesbian,
bisexual and transgender people.
The lawsuit claims Florida's gay
marriage ban violates the U.S.
Constitution's guarantees of equal
protection and due process.
The couples, many of whom have
children and have been together for
years, said they see no reason to be
forced to move to a state that permits
same-sex marriage when they have
built lives in Florida. Vanessa Alenier,
who is raising a 5-year-old son with
partner Melanie Alenier, said they
decided to share the same last name


to come as close to marriage as
possible but the same-sex ban
blocks that final step.
"We want our son to understand
that his family is secure and just as
respected as any other family," said
Vanessa Alenier. "Melanie and I have
worked so hard to build and protect
our family, but nothing can come
close to matching the protections
that marriage provides."
Similar claims have been made
in other states, including Oklahoma
and Utah, where judges recently
struck down gay marriage bans as
discriminatory. Elizabeth Schwartz,
an attorney working on the Florida
case, said there are about 40 lawsuits
pending around the country seeking
to end bans on same-sex marriage.
Florida voters enshrined a ban
on same-sex marriage in the state
constitution in 2008. It states that in
Florida "marriage is the legal union
of only one man and one woman
as husband and wife," and no other
unions can be recognized.


The Florida Family Policy Council,
which led the push for passage of
the amendment, noted that it was
adopted by 62 percent of voters that
year.
"Gay activists cannot win in the
marketplace, so they have resorted
to trying to find renegade courts who
have little respect for the rule of law
to create social change that would
never happen through the people
or their elected representatives,"
said John Stemberger, the group's
president and general counsel. "We
will spend as much time and money
as necessary to oppose those who
seek to redefine marriage in Florida."
The lawsuit's advocates, how-
ever, say attitudes toward gay
marriage have changed in Florida
and elsewhere since 2008, with
many opinion polls showing broad
support for ending same-sex bans.
Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, a
Republican-turned-Democrat who
is seeking is old job once again, said
in a statement he backs the lawsuit.

Scott pledges
money for springs
protection

TALLAHASSEE (AP)
- Florida Gov. Rick
Scott wants to spend
$55 million in the coming
year to help the state's
beleaguered freshwater
springs.
Scott on Tuesday said
he would include the
money in budget recom-
mendations he will send
to state legislators. Last
year, legislators set aside
$10 million for springs-
related projects.
The governor's plan
calls for splitting money
between projects de-
signed to restore water
quality and projects that
would develop alternative
sources of water supply.
Florida's springs
have been dealing with
problems from pollution,
as well as reduced water
flow. The Scott adminis-
tration came under fire
in 2011 for disbanding
an initiative aimed at
helping springs.


8 pilot whales
found dead off
Florida coast
MIAMI (AP)- Eight pilot
whales have died in shallow
waters off Florida's south-
west coast, and six others
remain unaccounted for,
authorities said Tuesday.
The Coast Guard tem-
porarily closed the area
to traffic in the area and
ordered boaters to reduce
speeds off the shores near
Fort Myers as they searched
for the other whales. Of
the eight deceased whales,
veterinarians euthanized
four of them.
National Oceanic
and Atmospheric
Administration's Fisheries
Service coordinator Blair
Mase said necropsies will
be performed on the dead
whales, four of which died
Monday, including two that
were euthanized.

Feds: Man sold
deadly toxin
to NJ agent
NEWARK, N.J. (AP)-A
Florida man faces federal
charges after authorities
said he sold a deadly toxin
to an undercover agent.
Jesse William Korff, 19, of
LaBelle, Fla., was arrested
over the weekend in Florida.
He was charged with smug-
gling and possessing a toxin
- in this case, abrin for
use as a weapon. Abrin is a
natural poison found in the
seeds of a plant. It is similar
to ricin.
Prosecutors said Korff
negotiated over the Internet
with the undercover agent
in New Jersey.
"He allegedly peddled
the poison on a virtual
black market of illegal and
dangerous goods, hidden
in the shadow of a secretive
computer network favored
by cybercriminals," said
New Jersey U.S. Attorney
PaulJ. Fishman.
Korff received $1,500 over
the Internet from the agent
and left the toxin hidden
in two candles at a rest
stop near Fort Myers, Fla.,
authorities said. Korff was
arrested after the candles
were found to contain
abrin.

Quite the pick-me-up


Margaryan gets Bobcats going, scores game-winner in district tourney


By DAWN KLEMISH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
NORTH PORT Even when
his team was behind, North Port
High School's Gaspar Margaryan
hollered as many positive words
of encouragement as his lungs
could handle on Tuesday night.
You'll make your mark next
time. There is still plenty of time
left on the clock. Keep going,
keep pushing, don't give up.
It was quite fitting then, that
Margaryan scored the game-ty-
ing and game-winning goals in a
3-1 victory against Braden River
in the District 4A- 11 semifinal.
"Somebody has to lead and
keep everyone up, why not me?"
he said. "If I can pick everyone


else up and keep them moving,
I'm going to get it done."
Tuesday's match avenged
two regular-season 3-1 losses
to the Pirates. North Port hosts
Thursday's district champion-
ship against Lakewood Ranch,
which ousted top-seed Venice in
the other semifinal.
Much as with the first two
times the teams faced off, North
Port (12-7) came out firing and
eventually outshot Braden River
14-6.
North Port keeper Danny
Estrada was challenged less
often, but suffered a fluke
bounce in the match's 23rd
minute that gave the Pirates a
1-0 lead. Estrada was lined up


in direct position to rebuff the
shot, but Mario Lopez's strike
bounced off a Bobcat defender
and caromed the opposite way
and into the back of the net.
Bobcats coach Gerard
Gregoire's half-time pep talk was
simple and straightforward: A
one-goal deficit is surmount-
able, to fall behind two would
mean the end. Like the Bobcats,
Braden River was playing its
second match in as many days.
North Port had the opportunity
to rest its starters in the second
half of Monday's game, however,
and hoped the fresh legs would
pay off in the second half.
They did.

SARASOTA After two
blowout wins over Sarasota
Military Academy during the
regular season, DeSoto County
High School found itself in a
scoreless deadlock at halftime
of a District 2A- 11 semifinal
match Tuesday night.
It wasn't until five minutes
into the second half when the
Bulldog's Oscar Ponce put a


coasted to a 6-0 victory against
the Panthers for their first win
of the season. It was also the
first district playoff win by any
varsity team in school history.
"We had the option to have
a JV schedule or play varsity
and know that we'd probably
get our butt kicked," coach
Ryan Alvarez said. "But the
main thing was that I wanted
the playoff experience for years
beyond this year. We could go


shot past Eagles goalkeeper
Jake Brown, and DeSoto County
held on for a 1-0 victory to
advance to Thursday's champi-

"I think we came in a little
overconfident," Bulldogs coach
Tracy Hay siad. "We definitely
didn't play as hard as we
needed to. And then you know
how it is when things aren't
working, and then they keep
not working, and then you get
frustrated. I think that's kind of

TAMPA BAY TIMES
TAMPA -Jason Licht,
the Arizona Cardinals'
director of player per-
sonnel and a part of four
Super Bowl teams in his
NFL career, has been
chosen as the Bucs' new
general manager, the
team officially confirmed
Tuesday night.
"Jason is a seasoned
NFL personnel veteran
who has worked with
some of the most ac-

in professional football,"
Bucs co-chairman Joel
Glazer said in a state-

provides the ideal com-

philosophy as our head
coach."
Licht, who turns 43

in Mobile this week for
evaluations at the Senior

"wait and see" mode

SARASOTA -As
Brandon Gonzalez
prepared to take the
game-clinching free
throw at Riverview High
School on Tuesday night,
the ball felt light in his
hands. It felt right. Why
wouldn't it?
Perhaps because he
had just missed a foul
shot moments before that
could have finished the
contest.
But he swished the
second one and the North
Port bench exhaled,
finishing off a 69-65
victory over county rival
Riverview.
"I knew I was going to
make the second one,"
Gonzalez said. "I wasn't
shooting free throws
throughout the game,
really."
Nobody in uniform for
North Port had ever won
at Riverview. The Bobcats'
last win here had been in
2010.

Azarenka upset




in quarterfinals


Stars continue
tumbling out

of season's
first major
By JOHN PYE
ASSOCIATED PRESS
MELBOURNE, Australia
- No. 2-seeded Victoria
Azarenka's 18-match
winning streak at the
Australian Open ended
in an upset 6-1, 5-7,
6-0 quarterfinal loss to
Agnieszka Radwanska
today.
Fifth-seeded Radwanska
ended a streak of three
consecutive quarterfinal
defeats at the Australian
Open with a stunning dis-
play of versatile shot-mak-
ing that confused the
big-hitting defending
champion.
She next plays No. 20
Dominika Cibulkova, who
won the last eight games
in a one-hour, 6-3, 6-0
quarterfinal rout of No.
11-seeded Simona Halep.
Azarenka's loss fol-
lowed the fourth-round
exits of top-ranked Serena
Williams and Maria
Sharapova and leaves 2011
French Open champion
Li Na as the only major
winner remaining in the
women's draw.
Li will play 19-year-
old Canadian Eugenie
Bouchard in the other
semifinal.
On the men's side,
Novak Djokovic's bid
for a fourth consecu-
tive Australian Open
title ended in a dramatic
five-set quarterfinal loss
to Stanislas Wawrinka
on Tuesday, potentially
leaving the door ajar for a
new major champion.
No. 8-seeded Wawrinka
lost 14 head-to-heads
to Djokovic until a 2-6,
6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 9-7 win on
Tuesday night put him
into a semifinal against
No. 7 Tomas Berdych. That
means there'll be at least
one finalist in Australia
who has never won a
Grand Slam title.
Djokovic held off
Wawrinka 12-10 in the
fifth set in a 5-hour,
2-minute fourth-rounder
last year the longest
Grand Slam match of the
season en route to his
third straight Australian
title. He also edged

Wawrinka in five sets in
the U.S. Open semifinals.
This time, it was
Wawrinka's turn.
"I don't want to lose
every time in five sets
against Novak. I had to
find solution," Wawrinka
said. "I had to fight within
myself to fight against
him and try to keep my
line during the game.
That's mean being really
aggressive.
"Last year I took a lot
of confidence with those
match with Novak ... I
came on the court with
a lot of confidence in
myself, knowing that if
I play my best game, I
always have a chance
against him."
This one took exactly
four hours and featured
some stunning rallies,
with both players openly
showing amazement at
some of the shots coming
back from the other side
of the net. There was a
five-minute rain delay
with Wawrinka serving at
5-5 in the fifth.

Dutch band plans to


chime in on gay rights


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
THE HAGUE,
Netherlands The Dutch
brass band that performs
at Olympic speed skating
ovals is considering
playing a popular song -
"Y.M.C.A." at the Sochi
Olympics to show its
support for gay rights.
It remains to be seen
how Russian and Olympic
authorities would react
should the Kleintje Pils
band play a song widely
considered to be a gay
anthem. A ban on infor-
mation about "nontradi-
tional sexual relations"
signed into law by Russian
President Vladimir Putin
has provoked widespread
international outrage
from critics who believe
it discriminates against
gays.
Band leader Ruud
Bakker told The
Associated Press on
Tuesday that Kleintje
Pils could mix the Village
People's "YM.C.A." in its
sing-along repertoire as "a
signal." But he added that
the band didn't want to
antagonize organizers or
turn its performances into
a "political game."

The band performed
"Y.M.C.A." at the 2002 Salt
Lake City games but has
not played it since then.
It has also practiced some
Russian songs for the
Sochi Olympics, which
run Feb. 7-23.

Sochi still scrambling
to sell Olympic tickets:
With less than three weeks to go until
the opening ceremony, hundreds of
thousands of tickets remain unsold,
raising the prospect of empty seats and
a lack of atmosphere at Russia's first

of tourist attractions in the area, and
the hassle of obtaining visas and

Sochi organizers announced last
week that 70 percent of tickets have
been sold for the games, which run
from Feb. 7-23. So what about the
remaining 30 percent?

Miami hoping for a



repeat against Duke


By STEVE GORTEN
SOUTH FLORIDA SUN SENTINEL
CORAL GABLES -
Donnavan Kirk watched
Miami's 90-63 home
drubbing of Duke last
January from his dorm
room at DePaul and was
so amazed by, and excited
for, his former teammates
that it motivated him.
Halfway across the
world in Belgium, a
few months before he
verbally committed to
the Hurricanes, Manu
Lecomte watched the
same surreal college bas-
ketball game onYouTube.
"I didn't expect that," he
recalled Tuesday. "They
just killed them."
In front of a sellout
crowd at BankUnited
Center, where students
had lined up as many as
22 hours before tip-off,
No. 25 Miami dealt Duke
the worst loss for an
Associated Press No. 1
team since 1968 and third-
worst of all time.
Kirk, back for his second
stint at UM, Lecomte
and the 'Canes hope to
manufacture another
home upset against
the Blue Devils tonight.

three matchups in Coach

As much as last year's

largest lead was 34 points
- meant, it "didn't really
do anything" to remove
any of Duke's mystique,
senior guard Rion Brown
said.
"You still have the same
excitement playing them,"
he said. "They're still
Duke. They still get the
best recruits every year."
The No. 18 Blue Devils
remain a widely-hated -
"I heard it was (because it
was) founded on tobacco
money" and "Richard
Nixon went there," Kirk
cracked Tuesday yet
successful program.
But with two ACC losses
already, they aren't as
imposing this season. And
while they rank 19th in the
nation in points per game
(82.6), they're 225th in
rebounding (34.3). It has


comparable talent to last
year's Duke team, Brown
noted.
But the Blue Devils'

up led by 6-foot-8,

the North Carolina team
that Miami beat in last
year's ACC Tournament
Championship than the
2012-13 Duke team with
frontcourt forces Mason
Plumlee and Ryan Kelly,
Larranaga noted.
Of course, this Miami
team is much different,
too. An entirely new
starting lineup features
last year's seventh-leading
scorer, Brown, as its top
scorer (13.6 ppg.).
Tonight's game, com-
bined with Saturday's
home game against No. 2
Syracuse, will reveal a lot
about Miami's postseason
fate.
"It's not like we are
where we were last year
at this time, fighting for
national recognition,"
Larranaga said. "We're
kind of fighting for
survival."

REPORTS: PLAYERS WANTED
A-ROD OUT OF UNION
NEWYORK (AP) Several angry
major league players wanted Alex
Rodriguez kicked out of their union
after he sued it last week, but staff
lawyers told them expulsion was
not allowed.
The players spoke Jan. 13 during
a Major League Baseball Players
Association conference call after
Rodriguez sued the union and
Major League Baseball to overturn
an arbitrator's decision suspending
him for 2014.


Details were first reported
Tuesday by Yahoo Sports and later
confirmed to The Associated Press
by a person familiar with the call.
The union and a Rodriguez
spokesman declined comment....
Major League Baseball told its 30 teams they must
implement security screening for fans by 2015, either
with hand-held or walk-through detectors.

Saban: Brown will learn from
recent arrest: Alabama coach Nick Saban
supported freshman cornerback Tony Brown, who
was charged with failure to obey and resisting arrest
Saturday night. He is "a fine young man (and) we're


glad to have him in the program,"Saban said....
Northwestern RB Venric Mark, granted a medical
hardship, can return for a fifth season in 2014.

ETC.
A $1 billion prize awaits anyone who correctly
selects every game of the NCAA tournament in
Warren Buffet's "Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge'."
... Quarterback Anthony Calvillo, who led the
Montreal Alouettes to Grey Cup victories in 2002,
2009 and 2010, retired after 20 CFL seasons.... The
Supreme Court was pondering whether the daughter
of boxer Jake LaMotta, whose life was the basis for
the Oscar-winning movie "Raging Bull;should go
another round with a major studio over copyright
infringement for ownership of his story.

* PREP ROUNDUP



Mustangs rout Ahfachkee


Lakewood

knocks Venice

out of tourney

STAFF REPORT
PORT CHARLOTTE -
Community Christian
School coach Jim
Engmark issued a
challenge to his team
- especially the seniors
- before its game against
Ahfachkee on Tuesday.
After seeing several
"lethargic" performances
from the Mustangs,
Engmark strongly urged
them to kick it up a notch.
They heard him loud
and clear.
Sophomore Jacob
Foster scored a game-
high 31 points as
Community Christian
routed Ahfachkee
66-4 on the Mustangs'
senior night. The
Mustangs' seniors, Scott
Higginbotham, Tyler
Engmark and Matt Sefik,
scored nine, four and
three points, respectively.
"They played really
well tonight," Engmark



SHARKS

FROM PAGE 1
We had already played
this team twice, so we
got the hang of them and
how to get around them
quicker. I knew we were
gonna finish this game the
way we did."
The Sharks also got goals
came from sophomore
Blake Bennice and fresh-
man Matthew Combs.
On the sidelines to
witness the first district
playoff win in school
history was athletic di-
rector Rudi Banuelos and
Alvarez's father, Jose.
Jose Alvarez
coached club soccer in
Hillsborough County for
26 years, and is the name-
sake of an annual award




BULLDOGS

FROM PAGE 1
County goalie Edgar
Olvera only had to make
two saves, both in the
first half.
"It's frustrating," Hay
said. "And then it starts to
play on your mind. But



CLIPS

"This is a really big vic-
tory for me," said senior
FROM PAGE 1

Justyn Miller, who scored
20 points for North Port.
"Especially since it's my
last at Riverview."
Gonzalez also had
20 points to lead the
Bobcats (18-4). Nick
Havener scored 24 points
to lead the Rams (19-4).
"Beating Riverview at
Riverview is pretty dang
satisfying," North Port
coach Travis Slanger
said. "It got a little hairy
down the stretch. But
they did exactly what we
asked."
The free throw by
Gonzalez finished
a hair-raising finale
for North Port, as the
Bobcats watched a
15-point lead with 2:15 to
play all but evaporate.
The Rams' pressure
defense suddenly got to
North Port in the final
minutes and Rams guard
Josh Dunn made a cou-
ple of quick baskets off

in the first 12 minutes and dominated
throughout to upset the top-ranked
Indians 6-1 at Powell Davis Stadium.
The Mustangs tested Venice's
defense early and often, sending
the ball deep and running onto it
throughout the match. Ben Wilson
opened the scoring 10 minutes in
on such a play, and Ryan Sollazzo's
chip shot two minutes later gave
Lakewood Ranch a two-goal lead
before the Indians had a chance to get
their bearings.
Erik Kreider's penalty-kick goal in
the 15th minute trimmed Venice's
deficit to 2-1, closing the scoring in
the opening half. The Indians never
got closer.
"That was the game plan,"
Lakewood Ranch coach Vito Bavaro
said of his team's fast start. "I think
they got flustered with the first two
goals, and it's hard to get out of that.":'

Teddy Deas inbounded
to Miller, who dribbled
upcourt through pressure
and found Gonzalez free
after crossing midcourt.
But the senior could have
simply kept the ball to
force a foul, since he was
a perfect 6 for 6 from the
line in the fourth quarter.
"You know, everybody
asked me the same exact
thing," Miller said. "I
caught the ball, took
a dribble and saw my
teammate wide-open
down the court and there
was no one there. So I
threw it to him. It was a
basketball play."
The wide-open finish
wasn't indicative of a

decided by defense in the
halfcourt. Even though
Havener got his points

points. He missed four
of six free throws in the
final minute.

* BOYS BASKETBALL: Port Charlotte 65, Ida Baker 48


Pirates put away Ida Baker


Blanc, Phillip
pace win for
Port Charlotte
By DAVE MONTROSE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
CAPE CORAL -The
scoreboard showed a
fairly commanding 65-48
win, but Port Charlotte's
High School's victory over
Ida Baker on Tuesday
night was not up to snuff
as far as coach Bill Specht
was concerned.
"I thought we came


out uninspired, for some
reason," Specht said. "I
thought we had turned
the corner after we had
some big wins over the
weekend."
The game was a bit of
a let-down after a strong
showing in the Wally
Keller Classic, where the
Pirates won both games,
including a double-over-
time thriller against rival
Charlotte on Friday.
"This time of year, you
can't take steps back,"
Specht said. "You've got
to take steps forward to


get ready for districts."
Starting with a Kyle
Collins 3-pointer, the
Pirates put up some early
buckets. A two-handed
dunk by Nicksen Blanc
gave them a 7-point lead.
But two Port Charlotte
players got into foul trou-
ble and Ida Baker started
dropping three-pointers.
After a 9-2 run, the
Bulldogs tied it at 13.
"They came out and
knocked down a lot of
shots, and we didn't con-
test a lot of those shots,"
Specht said.


UP NEXT
Port Charlotte: vs. Bradenton
Christian, Thursday, 7 p.m.

Neither team forced
another momentum
swing until late in the
second quarter. A Collins'
layup sparked a 6-0 run
until halftime, when the
Pirates led 34-29.
"We had to go into the
locker room and get them
motivated a little bit more
than they were, and they
came out and played


hard," Specht said.
The third quarter saw
the Pirates get down to
business, as they out-
scored the Bulldogs 19-7.
A 14-0 run carried over
from the end of the third
quarter to the start of the
fourth. Though a pair of
Ida Baker treys sparked
hope, it was too late for a
comeback.
Senior forward Blanc
had a strong night in
the paint. He drew three
act-of-shooting fouls
- including one for a
three-point play and


hit all five free throws in a
19-point game.
"I thought Nicksen
played pretty well,"
Specht said. "He has a big
size advantage against
them, and I thought he
finished quite a bit."
Sean Phillip added 11
points for the Pirates.

second half i


By GARY BROWN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
ENGLEWOOD It
took Charlotte High
School awhile, but the
Tarpons caught fire and
pulled away for a 72-56
victory over Lemon Bay
on Tuesday night.
The Manta Rays led
Charlotte 22-9 early in the
second quarter, but the
Tarpons closed the gap
to 31-30 at halftime on a
last-second 3-pointer by
Adrian Ivankovic. After
Lemon Bay scored the
first field goal of the third
quarter, Charlotte (13-9)
reeled off 15 straight
points for a 45-33 ad-
vantage and the Mantas
never led again.
"We started using our
pressure defense more
(after the early deficit),"
Charlotte coach Tom
Massolio said. "That
helped us turn the tide.
Then we made some big
free throws down the
stretch which made a
difference."
Nick Montoya scored
13 of his 17 points in
the second half for the
Tarpons, including nine
points in the third quar-
ter. Charlotte took a 51-44

lead into the final quarter
and gradually increased
it. Lemon Bay cut the lead
to six points twice in the
final quarter before the
Tarpons pulled away.
Dwight Reynolds scored
18 points and Ivankovic
had 12 for the Tarpons.
"Nick did a real good
job for us tonight,"
Massolio said. "That's
what we need, for our
seniors to step up for us."
Lemon Bay (3-13)
converted on its first four
3-pointers of the game
and had a 12-5 lead. The
Mantas stretched the lead
to 18-9 at the first-quarter
break as junior Montrel
Jackson scored seven
points, sophomore Joe
Garza had six and junior
John Hill had five.
Ivankovic kept the
Tarpons close in the first
half, scoring 10 of his 12
points. He scored eight
of them in the second
quarter when Charlotte
started its surge. Reynolds


By CHUCK BALLARO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
PUNTA GORDA-
Lemon Bay High coach
Mike Young said he
would love to bottle up
his team's performance
Tuesday against Charlotte
for the district tourna-
ment next week.
The Manta Rays played
a nearly flawless first
half as they attacked the
middle for easy baskets
and held the Tarpons to
nine points during that
span for a 61-25 victory
during senior night at
Charlotte.
"It's senior night and
you don't know how
emotions will affect you,
but we shot the ball very
well early," Young said.
"Got the ball inside their
zone, put shots down,
forced turnovers and got
into transition.
"We need to carry that

Senior Kayla Reid led all
scorers with 21 points and
took the fourth quarter
off. Junior Kacyn Shirley
added 16 while Sarah Lutz
contributed 10 for Lemon
Bay (14-8), which has won
four of its last five.
The Manta Rays never
trailed as they got off to a
double-digit lead midway
through the first quarter
and led by as many as
30 in the first half. The
Tarpons (6-18) managed
two points in the second
quarter with no field
goals.
Reid scored 14 points in
the first half as she put up
easy baskets in the paint.

offers mouthwatering treats


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Customers will soon discover that The Ice Cream
Place is much more than an ice cream place.
The recently opened business offers not only 100
flavors of gourmet ice cream, but also features a wall
of Florida souvenir gifts and a children's play area.
When they say they're "gourmet"they mean it.
Big Olaf, a brand of ice cream that is made locally by
an Amish company in Sarasota, is the star attraction. The
company lists 100 possible flavors, and The Ice Cream
Place intends to have as many available as possible.
Flavors such as Key Lime pie and blueberry
cheesecake may be served in waffle bowls, cones,
soft serve cones, shakes, malts, coolers, sundaes, and
banana splits.
Renae and Rich Henegar and Tim Flack recently
opened the location at 12456 N. Access Road, Port
Charlotte, across the street from the old Duffy's Golf
Course now called The Cove. The area is commonly
known as East Englewood to some residents. They also
own the recently opened Rooms 2 Roll, a discount mat-
tress and furniture store at the Access Road location.
Rich's family owned a bakery business, and Rich,
an expert baker, offers a variety of homemade
specialties including banana, apple cinnamon, or
orange cranberry breads, cookies, and special order
ice cream cakes. Coffee lovers will enjoy Java D'Oro
brand, cappuccino, espresso, and flavored coffees.
"Soon we'll expand our menu to include light
lunches'said Renae. "We're also planning to provide

By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
There is something to be said for tradition -
it's a comforting feeling to see familiar dishes on
a menu and know that you will get that same
consistency and quality each time you go to your
favorite restaurant.
Since 1991, the owners of II Panificio have been
offering a menu full of traditional Italian favorites to
an adoring Suncoast dining public. From one Main
Street Sarasota location, they have since added to
their collection a restaurant on Gateway Avenue, in
Gulf Gate, one on the South Tamiami Trail in Venice
and another one on the U.S. 41 Bypass in Venice.
Dino Toutoulis, the manager of the two Venice
stores, says that the secret to II Panificio's success is
pretty simple.
"We're a family-oriented pizzeria and Italian
Restaurant," he said. "We're a casual place that
people can go when they want good quality food at
a good price."
Though the restaurants' menu includes entree
favorites such as lasagna, chicken piccata, eggplant
rollatini, Pasta ala Vodka and mussels or clams over
pasta, II Panificio is probably best known for their
out-of-this-world New York-style pizza.
Toutoulis says that it's all about the bread, which
is baked fresh daily in the ovens at the Gulf Gate
restaurant.
"It makes the pizza crust thinner and crispier, and
includes only yeast, flour, salt and water," he said.
"It's the most basic of recipes, but it's what we do
with it afterwards that makes the difference."
With II Panificio pizza toppings, the combinations
are practically limitless. You can create your own from
a list of regular and premium toppings, or you can go


with one of their specialty pies, like White Pie with
Spinach, Pepperoni, Jalapeno & Ricotta or Homemade
Meatball.
For the most part, all of the restaurants have the
same menu items, but Toutoulis says that each one
also includes some of their own unique recipes.
"The restaurants down here (in Venice) mostly
follow my recipes, for the most part," he said. "My
linguini with clam sauce is an old Italian recipe I've
developed over a couple of years. It's unique and
tasty."
The ingredients are fresh at II Panificio and you can
taste the difference. They get three deliveries a week
of fresh produce and all sauces, soups and salads are
made in-house from quality ingredients.
Between the takes-you-back taste of the food
and the friendly, attentive staff, II Panificio is
experiencing great success among locals and tourists
who are looking for that traditional Italian flavor in
a restaurant. Toutoulis asserts that their success and
ability to expand in this economy is a direct result of
the relationship with their customers.
"We offer qualityfood and good service, and
we're very attentive to the customers' needs, always
listening to their suggestions," he said. "If we have
some customer who wants something special that's
not on the menu, I make it for them."
One of the II Panificio's Venice location is at 4191
Tamiami Trail South. The phone number for that
location is 941-496-9090. The other II Panificio Venice
location is at 1055 U.S. 41 Bypass. The phone number
for this location is 941-488-1797. The restaurants
are open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundaythrough
Thursday, and from 10 a.m. to 10p.m. Friday and
Saturday. For more information, visit

EVENTS THIS WEEK ON THE COVER G O


Festival to feature chili and beer this Saturday


SPECIAL TO THE SUN
The aroma of award-winning chili will
return on Saturday, Jan. 25, to Laishley
Park in Punta Gorda. That's when the 3rd
Annual Charlotte Harbor Chili Challenge
and Beer Festival is coming to town.
Twenty-five chili teams will set up
their chili cooking booths in Laishley Park
in an effort to persuade the judges and
the general public that their chili is the
best. The teams consist of friends, family,
service organizations, clubs, nonprofits,
businesses, or just about anyone who has
the desire to make good, if not great chili.
"Last year we had a great turnout, the
weather was great and it looks like this
year the weather is going to be great for
eating chili,"said Jerry Cleffl, general man-
ager for Smugglers Event Management.
In addition to making great chili,
teams will be challenged to decorate their
booths in a "Western Chili"theme. The best
decorated booth will win the Showmanship
award and a first-place prize of $500.
Booths will be judged on five criteria,
including theme, action, costume, audience
appeal, and booth set-up.
The main attraction of the day the
chili will be judged in two ways. A
panel of judges will taste test samples
from each of the teams. Judges will score
chili samples on a scale from 1 to 10 with
10 being the best. There are five criteria
for scoring, including aroma, consistency,
color, taste, and texture. Heat is not a
grading factor.
You can begin sampling chili at noon.

SUN FILE PHOTOS

The Chili Challenge winners will receive
$500, bragging rights and a trophy. There
will also be a $500 award for the People's
Choice of Best Chili. Each attendee will
receive a voting coupon when they enter
through the main gate to hand out to the
booth of their choice. The Team with the
most coupons wins the coveted People's
Choice Award and $500. These coupons
will be collected at 4 p.m. with the winner
announced at the award ceremony at 5 p.m.
on the main stage.
"The Chili Fest is great because it
features great food, great Blues music, and
great craft beers, it's a great combination
and a great wayto spend a Saturday
afternoon in Laishley Park,"Cleffi said.
In addition to the chili cooking, there
will be a full slate of activities during the


festival. Merchandise vendors will be on
hand as well as other food vendors. Live
music will be going on all day on the main
stage and there will be a Kid's Fun Zone to
keep the young ones occupied.
Live music begins at 11 a.m., then at
12:30 p.m., a great Southwest Florida
Blues and rock band named Deb and the
Dynamics will hit the stage. At 3 p.m.,
direct from Detroit, Mich., the David
Gerald Band will perform some soulful
Blues Music. This is a return engagement
for David Gerald and his band that wowed
the Chili Fest crowd last year with great
blues guitar and vocals.
"It's a rare chance to hear a great Blues
band live on stage',"Cleffi said."The David
Gerald Band is a don't miss if you like
great live music."


What goes better with Chili than an ice
cold beer?
At the festival, thirsty attendees will have
an opportunityto sample different beers
from small breweries not always readily
available in our area. The beer-tasting tent
will feature over 15 different craft beers from
microbreweries around the country to satisfy
your thirst. Specialty beers will be available
by samples orbythe bottle.
So be sure to mark your calendars
for Saturday, Jan. 25, to spend a day at
Laishley Park enjoying great food, great
live music, and great beer.
Admission is $3, and free for kids under
12. Tickets are required for chili, beer,
other food and the kids area. Each ticket
has the value of $1 each.
"We are still accepting chili teams right
up to the day of the event,"Cleffi said.
For more information, or to register,

Hands Across the Harbor unites two cities once again


By ERIN MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Born out of the desire to bridge the gap between
Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda, the 6th Annual
Hands Across the Harbor event will again bring the
communities together Jan. 25 to run, walk, bike or
longboard between the two cities.
The Charlotte Harbor Community Redevelopment
Agency partnered with the Punta Gorda CRA to
develop the event featuring a scenic route that begins
at Bayshore Live Oak Park in Port Charlotte and takes
people across the Gilchrist Bridge over Peace River
and into Punta Gorda.
"1 think it's a great location'said Debrah Forester,
redevelopment manager of the Charlotte County
Economic Development Office. "You're running across
the bridge and you get a great view of the Harbor."
Participants can register the day of the event
at 6:45 a.m. at Bayshore Live Oak Park. The event
includes a 10- and 20-mile bike route starting at
7:55 a.m., an 8K longboard race at 8 a.m., an 8K run
at 8:12 a.m., followed by the 8:15 a.m. start of the
non-competitive 5K fun walk.
Registration costs $25 per person and $20 per
student on the day of the event. Each group will
begin by heading east to U.S. 41 and then proceeding
south on Gilchrist Bridge. The right hand lane of the
bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic. Coming off
the bridge, runners, walkers and longboarders will turn
right onto Retta Esplanade West and follow it according
to the distance of their event before turning around
and heading back to Bayshore Live Oak Park. Cyclists
will receive a map of the marked route for either the
10- or 20-mile trek the morning of the race.
Watching the event grow each year, Forester said
there was an opportunity to add the longboard race
in 2014.
"We are trying to add different events'she said.


"We decided to give it a try."
The longboard, which is a variation of a longer
skateboard that can be used for things like distance
or downhill skateboarding, requires participants in
the 8K longboard race to be registered members or
the International Distance Skateboard Association, or
IDSA, before skating in Saturday's event.
Forester hopes the diversity of events will
attract people of all fitness levels and age groups.
Instructors from Yoga Sanctuary will be on hand at
7:30 a.m. to help everyone stretch before the event
and firefighters will be hosting a pancake breakfast
between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., complimentary to
registered participants.
To further help the younger generations appreciate
the beauty of the Harbor, proceeds from the event will
benefit the youth education programs of the Charlotte
Harbor Environmental Center. Grade-specific classes
provided by the center offer a hands-on learning
experience for elementary schoolchildren about the
watershed, the Peace River estuary and local species.
Jim Thomson of the Charlotte Harbor


Environmental Center said the funds they receive
from the Hands Across the Harbor event help offset
the cost of busing students to either the Alligator


Creek Preserve in Punta Gorda or the Cedar Point
Environmental Park in Englewood.
"We provide youth education programs that teach the
importance of protecting the Harbor,"Thomson said.
Whether the second-graders are wading in the
sea grass with buckets and nets in hand, or the
fourth-graders are walking trails and learning about
sea life on a two-day field trip, the center provides a
unique learning experience that coincides with their
classroom curriculum. This year, Forester is hoping for
at least 400 attendants at Hands Across the Harbor.
Family-friendly entertainment, door prizes, and an
award ceremony will round out the morning.
"It's a great way to get your Saturday going,";'
Forester said. "You can enjoy the rest of your day
and support a good cause'." Bayshore Live Oak Park is
located at 23157 Bayshore Road, Port Charlotte. For

Sex, spies, and side-splitting laughter


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
It may be challenging, but those who enjoy
complex and hilariously funny plots that keep them
guessing won't want to miss"Sin, Sex & the CIA"
by Michael and Susan Parker, a play that's being
performed by the Charlotte Players from Jan. 23
through Feb. 1 at the Charlotte County Cultural Center
Theater.
Who are the spies from OPEC that want to stop
a deal between Chagossians and the USA? Will the
Reverend discover damnation and sin? Are all CIA
agents graduates of the"Complete Idiots Academy?"
Director, Herb Berry, originally from Chicago, was
active in theater groups in Illinois, Colorado, and
Tennessee before locating to Port Charlotte two
years ago. He has acted and directed for 36 years,
sometimes 52 weeks out of a year.


"Last year I directed'Sex Please, We're Sixty'
by the same playwright;said Berry."l was a
bit nervous when Michael Parker showed up
on opening night, but the show was a hit, and
everyone gave us nothing but compliments."
The play's action takes place in a CIA safe
house in the mountains of Virginia. Huge oil
reserves have been discovered in the Chagos
Islands. OPEC wants the Chagosseans to join
their cartel, but they want to deal with the U.S.
instead. A secret meeting between a representa-
tive of the Islands and an under secretary of state
has been arranged by the CIA.
Margaret Johnson (JudyJuliano) is the under
secretary who chases after the cabin's caretaker.
Juliano, who has acted in many plays, performed
the role of the sexy Margaret in 2006 at Lemon Bay
Playhouse in Englewood. Luke James, a somewhat
bumbling undercover CIA operative, is played by

'The Last Romance'- A golden years love story


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
"The Last Romance"a comedy by Joe DiPietro will
appeal to area audiences who believe that age should
not be a deterrent, that love among the over 65 set is
still possible. Director Dan Higgs, who has acted in or
directed over 40 plays in Southwest Florida, agrees.
"The play depicts elderly people in a warm light
and has been well-received," he explained.
Higgs has cast husband and wife team Don Walker
and Jenny Aldrich as the widowed Ralph Bellini and
the independent Carol Reynolds who manage to meet
in secret and fall in love, despite terrible interference
by Ralph's possessive sister.
"I've worked with both actors at the Banyan
Theater in Sarasota, and I believe that they are
perfectly cast'said Higgs.
The very interesting role of Ralph as a young man
seeking a career as an opera singer will be played
by Michael Hilton, and the role of the manipulative
Rose Tagliatelle by Donna Hadley."The Last Romance"
will be performed at the Lemon Bay Playhouse in
Englewood from Jan. 22 through Feb. 16.
Most of the action takes place in a dog park in
Hoboken, N.J. Ralph, a kidder who enjoys joking
around, spotted Carol with her rat-like Chihuaha mix
named Peaches, and strikes up a conversation. She
resists his flirtatious advances but softens when he tells
her about his lost dream of becoming an opera singer.
Eventually, Ralph admits that he once auditioned to
sing at the Metropolitan Opera, but was crushed when
the company never responded. Although he married

and raised a family, he continued to be passionate
about the opera. In between scenes, Ralph's younger
self appears, performing excerpts from Italian operas.
As one would expect a romance develops between
Ralph and Carol, much to the dismay of Rose, a rather
comical yet pathetic character who seeks to protect
her brother from heartbreak.
Don Walker has acted in many productions
including playing the foreman of the jury in Asolo
Repertory Company's"Twelve Angry Men"and the
Sheriff in "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas."
He has played dozens of roles at the Golden Apple
Dinner Theatre in Sarasota and is active in Theatre
Odyssey's 10-minute play festivals where he often
shares the stage and screen with his costar and wife,
Jenny Aldrich. He directed Banyan Theater produc-
tions of"A Lesson from Aloes"and"Time Stands Still'."
Jenny Aldrich is an actor, producer and playwright.
Among her favorite roles are Blanche in "A Streetcar
Named Desire"and Martha in "Who's Afraid of Virginia
Woolf."She also performs one-woman shows.
Donna Hadley is well-known at Lemon Bay
Playhouse where she appeared in "Crimes of the
Heart"and "Dearly Departed."
Michael Hilton began by doing technical theater
work, but has enjoyed great success acting in a
number of roles including Paul Bratter in "Barefoot in
the Park"and several characters in "The Good Doctor"

The Best Little Art Show in Englewood goes international


E ',. 'January 22- 28, 20ii


SPECIAL TO THE SUN
Mark your calendars for the 27th Annual
Englewood Bank &Trust Invitational Art
Festival, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday
and Sunday, Jan. 25-26, on the grounds of
Englewood Bank &Trust's main branch at 1111
S. McCall Road. This showcase of original art will
feature 60 fine artists and craftsmen, represent-
ing every media.
"This is the time of year when I change hats
from being an independent artist and making art
in my studio to being an art festival director and
chairing an event'said local artist Carroll Swayze.
"I am very fortunate to have Englewood Bank &
Trust as my wonderful host. I am quite proud of
this event because it is the culmination of a year's
worth of hard work."
"As the director it is my goal to find the best
quality original art that I can to present to our
community each year,"said Swayze."Not only do I
have to find them, but I have to somehow convince
these artists to travel from wherever they live to
the Englewood/Boca Grande area to participate in
the show. The weather is always a selling point for
me, but what really draws the artists here, besides
the fabulous party I throw for them on my property,
is the amazing educated, art lovers that we are
fortunate to have on our coast!'
The Englewood Bank &Trust Invitational is a
small high-quality boutique-style art show with an
impressive list of artists. Sixty of the nation's top award
winning fine artists and craftsmen will be featured
in this world-class art event and every media will be
represented. Painting, sculpture, fine jewelry, glass,
printmaking, clay, drawing, metal, collage, and any
media you can imagine. Abstract painter Sharon Spillar
is coming from St. Louis to show her work as well as


the intricate clay wall sculpture of ceramicist, John
Cheer. Award-winning North Carolinian Tiffany Ownbey
will exhibit her unusual papermache sculptures and
Kevin Jenkins will show his giant copper hanging fish.
Sandy Cline is coming from Canada with his soapstone
carvings, painter Andy Fletcher and Katie Musolff will
be exhibiting her intricate drawings of nature. Many
of the local favorites such as painter Ben Essenberg,
raku artist Corky Whitman, leather craftsman George
Dennenberg, jeweler Barbara Knodel and, of course,
Carroll Swayze will also be exhibiting.
"I'm very excited about the artists who are coming

ROAD TRIP GO


Fort Myers tour experts join forces for the season


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Through the end of April, True Tours and the
Southwest Florida Museum of History will offer
walking tours in downtown Fort Myers at 10 a.m. and
1 p.m. each Wednesday and Saturday.
Downtown Fort Myers lends itself to such tours.
Museum docents are well-trained as are the tour
guides trained by True Tours founder Gina Taylor.
As the former executive director of the Lee Trust for
Historic Preservation, Taylor knows the area about as
well as anyone. Building on that background, she has
created a variety of tours which are offered through
her company as well as the new historic downtown
walking tour jointly created and offered by the
museum and True Tours.
"We're excited about working with True Tours',"
museum director Matt Johnson said. "They offer
a professional tour with new stories to tell and
innovative ways of telling them."
The result is a tour that is both entertaining and
informative.
Some of the interesting topics covered in the
tour are the militaryfort from which the city's name
is derived; a rivalrythat forged the city's business
district; the old hanging tree at the courthouse; the
old Arcade Theatre, post office, other landmarks, life
along the Caloosahatchee and the characters that
contributed to the city's personality.
"The tour is always evolving as I discover interest-
ing facts'"Taylor said. "I think participants should feel
entertained while learning history. There's a lot of
local color to share!'
Taylor's ongoing research into the area's history has
resulted in several additional and specialized tours
offered by True Tours.
Start with the basic combined tour but plan to
contact True Tours for more options: local architecture
and culture; public art; paranormal aspects of Fort
Myers and more. She knows the architects of the
buildings, the people who lived and worked in the
area, and the legends.
Additional offerings byTrue Tours include a

LIVE MUSIC G O


California


urf Inc. is the real deal


By JOHN HACKWORTH
EDITOR

Bobby Figueroa remembers 13 years ago, when
he and other former touring band members from the
Beach Boys first set foot in Port Charlotte.
The group, featuring original Beach Boy David
Marks, played two shows at the old Reflections
nightclub on U.S. 41. It was a sellout. That night
spurred the idea that these musicians all of them
veterans of Beach Boys concerts and records could
offer something no other tribute band could.
"We have the distinction that we were there,";'
Figueroa said recently via telephone. "Brian Wilson
was a genius and he created the harmonies of the
Beach Boys musicfrom his heart and with his ear. The
music sounds simple, but it's not!'
Figueroa says the intricacies of the music and
the harmonies that propelled the Beach Boys to 50
years of hits and successful concerts are difficult to
replicate. But California Surf Inc. is as nearly as good
as the originals and the still-touring, Mike Love-led
product.
The band lands in Port Charlotte for one show only,
7 p.m. Feb. 5 at the Cultural Center.
Figueroa, who plays drums and does vocals, is
bringing along Matt Jardine, son of original Beach
Boy Al Jardine, Billy Hinsche, Ed Carter and special
guest Randell Kirsch, who still tours with the Beach
Boys, who are taking a winter break.
The members of the group have known each


SPECIAL TO THE SUN
This month the Charlotte County Jazz Society is
sponsoring the Buz Terry Jazz Quintet with Chris
Brown on vocals to play a jazz concert at each of the
Charlotte County high schools.
The Buz Terry Jazz Quintet consists of Mac
Chrupcala on piano, Dominic Mancini on bass, Chuck
Parr on drums, Fred Capitelli on sax and Buz Terry on
trumpet and flugelhorn.
The first concert was held on Tuesday, Jan. 21,
at Charlotte High School, and it is followed bya
Wednesday, Jan. 22, concert at Port Charlotte High

other since touring with the Beach Boys in
the '70s, '80s and '90s. All of them have gold d
records for their studio work on various Beach
Boys albums and have appeared on stage
with the group at its 25th anniversary TV
special and in concerts at the Hollywood Bowl,
Madison Square Garden and Carnegie Hall,
among other venues.
Besides the Beach Boys tours, the group has
performed on stage with the likes of Sir Elton
John, Ringo Starr, Paul Simon, Billy Joel, Chicago
and Ray Charles.
Figueroa got started as a 14-year-old in California,
idolizing the Beach Boys and their music while he
formed his own surf-rock band. Then, in 1974, he got
a call from Dennis Wilson to audition for the Beach
Boys.
"Dennis wanted to get out front more and was
looking (for someone to play drums)," Figueroa said.
"I showed up and auditioned and they said'See you
in Seattle tomorrow.'That was it."


School. Another concert will be held Tuesday, Jan. 28,
at Lemon Bay High School. Each concert will be
followed by a mini clinic for interested students.
On Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Murdock Baptist Church
on Cochran Boulevard, the Jazz Society will sponsor
its annual Music Jazz Fest for Charlotte County middle
and high school jazz bands. Each jazz band will play
three selections which will be followed by a critique by
a panel of professional musicians. This annual event is
designed to help the local school jazz bands prepare for
the state competitions that are held in February. The
event begins at 9 a.m. and is open to the public with
free admission. However, donations will be accepted

Matt Jardine, Bobby Figueroa, Ed Carter, Billy
Hinsche, and former member Philip Bardowell.
The veteran musician cherishes his days touring
with the Beach Boys and his relationship with Carl
and Dennis Wilson, both of whom have passed away.
"Dennis brought me on, and it was Carl who first
gave me a mike and allowed me to sing with the
group. Dennis loved music and his family. He would
have fought to the death for them, but he was living


a hard life!'
Figueroa said he still keeps in touch with Mike
Love and other Beach Boys and recently sang on
stage in Detroit, Mich., during the 50th Anniversary
Tour.
He promises that the Port Charlotte show will
bring back great memories.
"People love this music because it is all about
summer, girls, cars it's non-threatening,"he said.
"And it crosses generations. The whole family loves it'."

In addition to the above two events, the Charlotte
County Jazz Society will hold auditions for county high
school seniors as part of its scholarship program. The
application period ends on March 15 and the auditions
will be held on March 22. Two years ago, the society
awarded nine scholarships ranging from $500 to $1,000.
All three of these events are the result of a long-standing
partnership between the Charlotte County Jazz Society

STAFF WRITER
In The Monroe Room at Ambiance
Salon Suites, framed photos of an
elegant Marilyn Monroe grace the
walls.
Andrea McVicker, 30, who previous-
ly worked in salons in both North Port
and Port Charlotte and has 15 years
of styling experience, opened her new
location Nov. 21. She is one of seven
stylists and two massage therapists
who rent rooms at the suites, a pink
house across U.S. 41 from Taco Bell.
"I've always wanted to own my
own business," she said, adding she
has been pretty much "booked solid"
since she opened.

The Charlotte County Computer
Group will celebrate its 30th anniversary
in March. Their mission is to promote
computer literacy and education.
The Computer Group carries out its
mission by rebuilding used comput-
ers for those who need them, and by
educating members through classes and
helping them with problems on their
computers.
"What we do is take donated com-
puters, repair and refurbish them, then
donate them to those in need," said Ron
Wallis, president.
"And we're a membership program.
There are a lot of perks to being a mem-
ber," he continued. "You get an awful lot
for your $35 membership fee."
Members agree. "Best money I've ever
spent," said Debbie Abrahams. "The
question and answer sessions are so
helpful; they'll stay with you until you
understand it. And, they're not trying
to sell you anything. Also, I can bring
my computer in if it has any problems
and they will fix it no cost to me. It's
amazing!"

"It's a good club; we're very happy to
be members," said Robert and Joanne
Nicholson. "We joined so we can learn.
We've taken courses at other places
that cost a lot, and they have not been
as good as these courses, which are
included in the price of membership.
It's almost too good to be true."
"Any problem you have with your
computer, they'll help," said Kath Bare.
Bare volunteers her time to help
the club as she believes it is a worthy
organization.
"There's always someone to help you
- it's a great place," Bare said.
Board member Grover Mudd
explained that the basic mission of
the club is to take used computers,
repair and refurbish them if they are
fixable, and then donate the rebuilt
computer to a school child or a veteran
in Charlotte County, based on recom-
mendations from school counselors
and the Veteran's Administration. Local
nonprofit organizations also receive the
rebuilt computers.
"It gives you a good feeling when
you go home at night, knowing you've
done something to help someone," said
Wallis to explain why he spends several
hours each day in the group's site in the
Cultural Center, working on computers.
In the past year, they donated more
than 400 computers to those in need.
The Computer Group is an all
volunteer, nonprofit 501(c) (3) organiza-
tion that rents space from the Cultural
Center.
"And we're a membership program,"
continued Wallis. "We offer free classes
for members; we have top-notch
instructors. And each month we have a
presentation at our monthly meetings."
There are close to 350 members. The
annual membership fee is $35 for an
individual, $45 for a family.
"If members have problems, we try

"They worked on our computer and
fixed it for free," said memberVicky
Shifflet, happy as she hauled her com-
puter back to her car. 'And the classes
were wonderful; we learned so much."
Meetings are held the first Tuesday of
each month at 7 p.m. in the Centennial
Hall in the Cultural Center. To join, come
to a meeting, or come to the office in the
Cultural Center Monday through Friday
between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The next

Buffalo Bills fan club


gives to the community


By STEVE KNAPP
SPORTS WRITER
The Buffalo Bills fan club is a group of
loyal fans who meet every game day at
Boomers in Port Charlotte. They enjoy
watching their beloved Buffalo Bills play
and have the opportunity to socialize
with others who share their interest in
the Bills.
Another thing they do is raise money
through various raffles, 50/50 drawings
and other fundraisers.


"We like to give the money back to
the local community through organi-
zations that help kids," said secretary
Marge Szmania.
At their last meeting before Christmas,
the club invited seven local groups to
Boomers to receive a check at the half-
time of the game. A total of $3,800 was
given to Toys for Tots (plus two boxes of
toys), Do the Right Thing, For the Love
of Kids, Pop Warner Bandits football
organization, Big Brothers/Big Sisters,
Special Olympics and Crossroads.


The representatives of the Buffalo Bills fan club are Jim Gibson (treasurer), Marge Szmania
(secretary), Ed Sweda (board member), Bob Schleer (president) and Mar Barry (activities director).
Missing were vice president Ron Woods and board members Tom Procknal and Jim Baker.)

Bluegrass concert at Mid-County Library


Chic-fil-A cow visits Peace River Elementary


HEPLCLD PH,'T-.'.S B, BETS, VILLI-,1S
Amazing the audience with his talent, 13-year-old Sean Costello
turned his violin into a bluegrass playing fiddle, performing some of
the most complex of fiddle songs like "Orange Blossom Special:'


Amber Wave Bluegrass Band, aka the Costello family, were the first to perform at Mid-County Library for the 2014 Mid-County
Music Series, which was free to the public.


"He's big;' said second-grader Sandra Benecke,
the only words she had for the Chic-fil-A cow
making a visit to her school recently. Young
Benecke could not find a book on cows but did
find one on pigs.


Four-year-old Dominic Vaccaro came to the afterschool program with his sister Ava, a
second-grader, and goes in for a hug from the Chic-fil-A cow.


A visit from a 71/2 foot tall black and white cow wearing
a red jersey was the reward for students at Peace River
Elementary who visited the Family Center after school
recently to pick out books to take home to read for the
weekend. First grade twins Javon and Jarell Rockymore
give the Chic-fil-A cow a big hug. The cow was an incen-
tive to the students, brought in by Title One associate
Chris Marcoguiseppe.


Members of the Amber Waves Bluegrass Band and 19-year-old twins, Alex on guitar and Katie
Costello on banjo, perform a duet during the free Bluegrass concert held Jan. 6, at the Mid County
Library as part of the 2014 Mid-County Music Series which was free and open to the public.

Port Charlotte's pleasantly Piratey ROTC party


By SHAYLIN FLORES and ANGELA JIMENEZ
ROTC MEDIA LIAISONS

The Pirate Naval Junior ROTC family
celebrated spectacularly at a holiday
party on Dec. 23 at the American
Legion Headquarters. This event was
the first time that the unit hosted
a holiday party in about five years.
Cadets were able to bring any friend
to join this festive party. The party
encompassed food, raffles, dancing,
contests and an amusing gift exchange,
all adding to the friendly atmosphere.
This event was one of the few that
Cadet Grening had recently been in
charge of and he stated, "The planning
was a little tough, but when the party
finally started, it was a huge success! It
was indeed worth the effort my assis-
tants and I put into it!"
Some cadets also participated in an
Ugly Sweater Contest. The crowd voted
for whomever had the ugliest Christmas
sweater, and Cadet Brandon Russell won!
"I think it was a lot of fun dancing
and talking with friends, and I am so
happy I won the Ugly Sweater Contest.
I hope there will be other events like
this one," said Russell.
As the night passed and the music
played, there was a smile on every face
and an aura that everyone was enjoying
this time in their own way.
Cadet Petty Officer Third Class
Samantha Mabry added, "I enjoyed the
friends and people around to laugh
with. The dancing was wonderful, and
the joy of seeing everyone was great!"
The Special Operations Chief, Cadet
Justin Grening, and his two assis-
tants, Cadet Nicole Torres, and Cadet
Anthony Clemente, can feel proud
of their hard work, and once again,


Brandon Russell won the ugliest sweater
contest.
overachieving everybody's expec-
tations. Cadet Kaitlin Chauvin said,
"Grening did a great job organizing this
event. I am excited for the Military Ball
and other Spec Ops events!"
This animated party was overflowing
with laughter and some interesting
dance moves. Cadet Wilson, who
recently joined the unit, described her
experience as, 'A great way to get to
know everyone and the most fun I've
had in a while."
The well-organized night was an
evening to remember and a great way
for cadets to interact and meet others.
Events like these are the reason the unit
remains a tight-knit family. Everyone
in the unit had a great time and is
optimistic that next year's party will
impress even more!

Senior softball going strong in morning league


By STEVE KNAPP
SPORTS WRITER

The 55+ morning softball league
plays in Punta Gorda at Carmalita Park
on Monday and Thursday mornings.
Here, the players get together to enjoy
the company of other ball players, tell
a few stories about how good they used
to be, get a little exercise and, oh yes,
play softball.
The league is organized just slightly
above a sandlot pick-up game. The
players are drafted onto a team. If a
team is short a player or two, it is a
common sight to see extra players
from other teams play for the team
that is short of players for that day. The
players umpire their own games, and
there are few arguments.
The purpose of the league is to enjoy
the game and the players nobody
is getting a college scholarship or a
pro contract out of the league, so the
emphasis is on having fun and staying
healthy. If a team wins it is a bonus.
The teams all enjoy a picnic of pizza
or hamburgers and hot dogs after the
season ends. There is no championship


rings or parades or even a champion-
ship T-shirt. The game is played with
having fun in mind. As the new season
starts, very few can even remember or
care who won the championship in the
last season.
The past season was played with-
out longtime commissioner Chuck
Tomanio, who died just as the season
began. He ran the league and did the
job three players now perform.
Potential players are encouraged
to call Jim McCurry at 941-766-7482,
Charlie Hofer at 941-505-2961 or Jim
Day at 941-391-5528 if they are inter-
ested in playing. The current season
started on Jan. 9. Practices are at 9 a.m.
Monday and Thursdays.
For those who prefer playing at night,
there are leagues for them, too.
A 50-and-over league plays on
Tuesday and Thursday nights. For more
information, call Bruce at 941-743-9694
or John at 239-243-6150.
Longtime local softball advocate
Vince Santello runs a 60-plus softball
league that also plays on Tuesday
and Thursday nights. Santello can be
reached at 941-624-3630.


After the league picnic, Jim Day thanks Jeff Goodman and Tim Casey for playing their first season
in the 55+ morning league. Both players signed up for the next session that began on Jan. 9.


Vince Santello drives a base hit to the opposite field in a morning league game. Santello runs a
night league for those 60 and older. Santello can be reached by calling 941-624-3630.
RIGHT: Charlie
Hofer, Jim
McCurry and
Jim Day run the
morning league r
after the passing
of longtime
commissioner
Chuck Tomanio. '
For information i
call Hofer at
941-505-2961,
McCurry at
941-766-7482 -BPDa at. -
or Day at
941-391-5528. : -:

rich in the arts. Just look at the
number of artists at the Visual
Arts Center and the number of
galleries in town. The same goes for
music; the town is home to a local
symphony, chorale and an abundance
of local bands and singer/songwriters,
plus it has an incredible venue the
Charlotte Performing Arts Center at
Charlotte High School.

Chamber welcomes back seasonal residents


s we rapidly approach the end of
January, the Punta Gorda Cham-
ber of Commerce wants to again
welcome all of the part-time residents
to the area and thank them for stop-
ping by the city of Punta Gorda.
Many additions and changes have
occurred since last year, so stop by
the chamber office, located on the
corner of Marion Avenue and Sullivan
Street, for a refresher session on local
knowledge and to find out what's new
in Punta Gorda.
The chamber is open from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m. Monday through Fridays, and
chamber staff and volunteers are more
than happy to share the latest infor-
mation available, as well as showcase
details of the upcoming events and
programs in the area.
Call the chamber at 941-639-3720
for more information, and don't forget
about the chamber's website, www.
puntagordachamber.com. It is also a
wealth of information.
Here is a sampling of events on
tap for members of the Punta Gorda
Chamber:
A ribbon-cutting and grand-opening
ceremony for Campbell's Enrolled
Agents & Co., Inc., which was previous-
ly Steven's Tax Service, will take place
at the group's new office, located at 405
Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda. The cere-
mony will start around 5:15 p.m., with
the ribbon-cutting taking place around
5:30 p.m. All are most welcome to
attend and support this new business.
Chamber members will also be wel-
coming Deena's Delectables to Punta
Gorda during a ribbon-cutting ceremo-
ny on Jan. 28. The event is scheduled to
begin at 5:15 p.m. at the cafe, located
at 122 Nesbit St. Again, all are most
welcome to attend the celebration.
Finally, members of the chamber will
have the chance to hear the annual
State of the City speech on Jan. 29.
The speech will be given by Mayor
Rachel Keesling, and it will be part of a
luncheon, set to begin at 12:30 p.m. at
the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association,
2001 Shreve St.
Lunch is $15, and advance reserva-
tions are required. Call the Punta Gorda
Chamber to book a spot.

with at the end of the art class.

and boat tours, which are run in con-
junction with King Fisher Fleet and the

If you enjoy the music of the Bee

hair, platform shoes and bell bottoms
- once again, they will be all the rage.

Understanding

SMaster Limited

Partnerships


Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) are a unique and growing asset class
in our clients' portfolios. The quest for yield, tax benefits of a limited
partnership, and steady distribution growth that maintains investors
purchasing power are the obvious appeal.

We invite you to join us to discuss the asset class with Stephanie L.
Geller from Miller Howard Investments.


Topics to be discussed
The history and evolution of this
asset class
Business structure of MLPs
Potential investment advantages, risks
and outlook for the asset class

P* UBS


This event is funded in part by Miller Howard Investments Miller Howard Investments and UBS Financial Services Inc are not affiliated The
tax treatment for investors in MLPs is different than that of an investment in stock, including (a) the investor's share of the MLP's income,
deductions and expenses are reported on Schedule K -1, not Form 1099, (b) because of the possibility of unrelated business taxable income,
charitable remainder trusts should not invest in this strategy, and other non-taxable investors (such as ERISA and IRA accounts) should carefully
consider whether to invest in this strategy, (c) investors may have to file income tax returns in states in which the MLP's do business and (d)
MLP tax information is sent directly from the partnership which generally has until April 15th to provide this in formation You should discuss
these and any other tax implications with your tax advisor This presentation is for informational and educational purposes only and should not
be relied upon as investment advice or the basis for making any investment decisions The views and opinions expressed may not be those of
UBS Financial Servi ces Inc UBS Financial Services Inc does not verify and does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the information
presented UBS Financial Services Inc its affiliates, and its employees are not in the business of providing tax or legal advice Clients should seek
advice based on their particular circumstances from an independent tax advisor MLPs are subject to significant regulation and may be adversely
affected by changes in the regulatory environment including the risk that an MLP could lose its tax status as a partnership If an MLP were to be
obligated to pay federal income tax on its income at the corporate tax rate, the amount of cash available for distribution would be reduced and
such distributions received by the Fund would be taxed under federal income tax laws applicable to corporate dividends received (as dividend
income, return of capital, or capital gain) In addition, investing in MLPs involves additional risks as compared to the risks of investing in common
stock, including risks related to cash flow, dilution and voting rights Such companies may trade less frequently than larger companies due to
their smaller capitalizations which may result in erratic price movement or difficulty in buying or selling Additional management fees and other
expenses are associated with investing in MLP funds The Fund is subject to certain MLP tax risks and risks associated with accounting for its
deferred tax liablity which could materially reduce the net asset value An investment in the Fund does not offer the tax benefits of a direct
investment in an MLP No fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a fund The Fund may engage in other
investment practices that may involve additional risks and you should review the Fund prospectus for a complete description As a firm providing

The


evolution


of holiday


gifts


BYASHLEYSTRIKER
CHS SENIOR


Students at Charlotte High School surround Santa Claus, who visited the senior class recently. INSET: Dominique Watson, a senior at Charlotte High
School, was excited to go on Christmas break.


s Charlotte High School stu-
dents prepared to go on winter
break, they shared their favorite
holiday memories with friends, while
describing what's on their mod-
ern-day wish-lists.
The one thing CHS senior
Dominique Watson always wanted as
a child was either "A Bratz doll


or one of those little kitchens."
As people grow older their
Christmas wishes tend to change.
Teenagers are more into things like
phones and cars. Adults wish for
more sentimental things like framed
photos of their family. As time goes
by, small little knick-knacks don't
matter as much as things that are


more useful.
"My Christmas wishes have
changed drastically from when I was
a kid to now," explained Miranda
Gross, a senior at CHS. "Now that I
am older, I wish for things I need,
like a car or work or cute clothes for
school."


Some students ask for gift cards,
so they can buy what they need.
Students also like selecting gifts for
each other as well.
"Mostly I see kids getting gift cards
this year so they can buy their own
things," explained Jessica See, a
senior at CHS.

CHS JUNIOR
ne of the extracurricular
organizations offered at Char-
lotte High School is Key Club.
This organization is a student-led club
available to youth around the world,
and it provides members with opportu-
nities to provide service to the commu-
nity, while building character and devel-
oping leaders at the high school level.
According to Key Club International's
website, www.keyclub.org, the orga-
nization was first formed in 1925 in
Sacramento, Calif. Charlotte High's
chapter has been in existence since
1968.
The club is supported by the Kiwanis
Club, and Emily Klossner is the Key
Club advisor for the Tarpons. Klossner is
a CHS alumni, and she was a Key Club
officer when she attended high school.
"I was a Key Club officer, and my
father is the Kiwanis advisor. It was only
a natural fit," Klossner said.
Key Club is involved in community
service, and UNICEF is one of their
biggest fundraising projects.
Formally known as the United
Nations Children's Fund, UNICEF
"works in more than 190 countries
and territories to save and improve


Helping others

children's lives by providing health care
and immunizations, clean water and
sanitation, nutrition, education, emer-
gency relief" among others, reports its
website, www.unicefusa.org.
Specifically, Key Club members are
participating in the Eliminate Project,
which is a joint effort of Kiwanis
International and UNICEF to eliminate
maternal and neonatal tetanus. Tarpons
are supporting the cause by collecting
money from their school and home
communities.
CHS junior Angelica Asperilla has
been in the club since her freshman
year. By being involved in the club, she
knows the importance of giving back.
"I like meeting new people and being
able to give back to our community,"
Asperilla said. She said that her "love for
service" is what made her want to join
the club.
Haley Blaine, a junior, is also a
member of the Key Club at Charlotte
High. Once she learned Klossner was
sponsoring Key Club, Blaine had to get
involved. She has now been a Key Club
member for 2 years.
"We give back to the community,"
Blaine said.
Students are welcome to join the club
and become part of a service organiza-
tion on campus at any time in the year.

experience. They do have one thing in
common a creative itch that can only
be scratched by writing. All will tell you
the city is well on its way to becoming a
home to a community of artists honing
their craft and publishing books that
people are looking to buy.

Peace River Center
forWriters
Many local authors are members of
the Peace River Center for Writers, which
was formed under the leadership of
Carol Mahler in 2002 to provide support
to area writers wanting to pursue or
improve their craft.
It was first housed in the historic
Trabue Land Sales Office at the History
Park, and moved to more spacious
accommodations at Edison State College,
Charlotte Campus, in 2008.
Two members John Pelot, currently
the organization's president, a professor
at Edison and an award-winning author,
and John Houck, the vice president
who teaches writing at Edison and has
published eight books have been
board members from the beginning of
the group. Together, they have seen the
center change over the years as the local
writing scene has matured.
They agree the number of local
authors has grown, and the center has
changed its focus to accommodate their
needs.
Houck said of the early years, "We had
only 10 or 12 active people. We had 200
members, but 10 or 12 people did all the
work. We did a lot of classes and work-
shops, but not that many events. Not
many members were really writing."
The economic recession and the move
to a closer alignment with the college
further pruned the membership roles
and prompted a re-think by the center's
leadership.
Pelot said, "We had way too many
classes, and no one was coming. We had
to change our model a little bit. Early on,
we had a lot of members affiliated with
the center and not interested in writing
and publishing. Now, we have more
people really writing."
In response to their needs, the center
cut back on basic workshops and classes
and started holding more writer events,
helped by funding from the Florida
Humanities Council.
Houck said, "We started writing grants
through the council and won five of
them. We put the money right back into
events. We brought in famous Florida-
based authors for a half-day or all-day
program."
The center also began offering more
resources to help with the nuts and bolts
of the whole process from writing
through editing, cover design and, in-
creasingly, how to publish. Houck holds
a monthly breakfast at the Wyvern hotel
and writer gatherings two Saturdays a
month. This is where writers read their
work and discuss ways to move their
work through the publication process.
Houck said of the new emphasis on
publishing, "It's going through major

itd l t olllt J.llt.


changes, a major shake-up, because
there are so many options today. E-books
are really coming on."
PRCW now has workshops on pub-
lishing options and even formed its own
publishing arm Peace River Press of
the Peace River Center for Writers at
Edison State College. That name is a
mouthful and will undoubtedly change
as the college makes the transition to its
new moniker, but the press is already
ramping up publishing by local authors.
More growth is almost certain.
Houck and Pelot have similar perspec-
tives about the reason for the author
boom. Houck explained, "A lot of accom-
plished people are coming here from
other places with academic backgrounds
or from influential businesses. We have
a culture now of writers who want to
write their memoirs or their memoirs as
fiction. They have stories they want to
tell."
Pelot, a prolific writer despite his
teaching load, agreed, saying, "You really
need to have life experience to have
that depth.. .We (writers) condense all
those experiences into one story. It's not
a matter of magic talent; it's just a lot of
hard work."

The authors
A good way to get a feel for the quality
of work turned out by local authors is
to visit the center's Open Mic night at
6:30 p.m. every second Monday of the
month at Center Court in Fishermen's
Village, 1200 W Retta Esplanade. Emceed
by Mike Haymans, it provides an oppor-
tunity for people to read their work to
an audience. The quality of their work,
especially in the poetry, is apparent.
One poet, Carl Parrott, stands out both
for his life experience and his writing.
A native Floridian, he's been a sawmill
worker, a cabinet maker, done a tour
with the U.S. Marines in the Korean
conflict and concluded with a long
and successful career with the Broward
County Sheriff's Office, rising to the
rank of captain and commandant of the
county police academy.
He's been writing since he was 6 years
old, much of it poetry he never thought
of publishing until he joined the center
and took a course from Pelot, who right
away saw Parrott's ability. His first book
of mostly poetry, "Florida Cracker Tales,"
is in its second printing.
"The center made me aware that peo-
ple were interested in what I thought,"
Parrott said.
Pelot said, "I don't think he really
believed that until the books arrived at
my house. I called him, and he and his
wife arrived with a bottle of champagne."
Parrott's poetry is lyrical and easy to
read, almost musical when read aloud.
He's especially facile with the native
dialect in the "Cracker Poetry" section of
his book. Assorted poem titles include
"Po' Boy Blues," "Warshin' the Truck" and


"Two Ole Boys Name a' Bubba."
Dorothy Howe Brooks has numer-
ous published poems and a recently
published book, "A Fine Dusting of
Brightness," containing many of them.
She used to write both fiction and poetry,
but finally decided to focus on poetry. It
is her first love, and one that accommo-
dates the very visual approach she takes
with her art form.
She often writes about what she sees,
like a garden. She said, "I need to express
myself. I saw a Japanese rock garden
in Del Ray Beach. It was sitting there; it
was so wonderful. I take kind of a visual
approach."
She likes the PRCW because of the
opportunity to interact with other poets,
and she's also active in the Gulf Coast
Writers Association. She stays busy writ-
ing, and a second book is in the offing.
She said, "I'm always working on one
(poem). I like to get them published
individually first."
Emma Feix Alberts is a prolific writer
with five books on Amazon's website,
www.amazon.com, and she covers the
gamut from poems to short stories to
books. One of her best works is "What
the Hell Was I Thinking," a hilarious
memoir of her enlistment in the U.S.
Navy, where she met some crazy char-
acters and ran head-on into the Mickey
Mouse rules that abound in the armed
forces.
"It was like Alice in Wonderland' only
more like a nightmare," she said.
Dawn Haymans, who was at Open
Mic, said of her book reading, "She's so
real; it's reality. She doesn't hold anything
back. She's very graphic."
Alberts is a big fan of the center and
frequents events like Open Mic, poetry
contests and a group boat ride on the
harbor.
She said, "I'm so happy I found these
people. It's a real cultural opportunity."


At Sandman Book Company, locally authored
books display a large card to let you know who
they are and where they are from.

You can find many of the local authors'
books on Amazon or Kindle, but you

Copperfish, is located at 105 Elizabeth

trend.
Graham said, "We wanted to be the

we put it out there that we have a local

wants to put their book in the store.
Local bookstores are the right place; you
can't get them in Barnes & Noble."
The store has a separate section set
aside for local authors, and its website
has a list of titles. Copperfish holds many
author events featuring signing and
talks, and the owners are always looking
for more locally authored books. Punta
Gorda-themed fiction is a good seller,
and, no surprise, many buyers know the
authors.
She said, "They've either met the
author or know a little bit from a news-
paper article. It's not usually a browse
thing; they already know what they
want."
Sandman is a very large bookstore
located at 16480 Burnt Store Road in
Turtle Crossing Plaza. It's owned by Heidi
Lange and husband Scott Hill, and it
is faithfully presided over by the store
cat, Kitty-Wan Kenobi, who's as much a
fixture as the books.
Lange has bookcase after bookcase
filled with books on Florida and by
Florida authors. Her extensive collection
of local authors in that section feature a
large white card noting their origin.
She said of the hometown writing
scene, "We definitely have a lot more
authors this year than before. I think the
reason is that it's a lot easier to self-pub-
lish. You can do smaller printings, 50
instead of thousands, and the whole pro-
cess is easier. It's cheaper to print short
runs, and you can print on demand. Take
your PDF file in, and that's it."
Sandman, too, has a list of locally au-
thored books on its website and is always
looking for more. Authors should go to
the store's website for instructions.
Located out of town and halfway to
Cape Coral, Lange's take on the buyers
of local authors is a little different
than Graham's. Most of the buyers at
Sandman are visitors, with local resi-
dents not showing much interest. She
has a good idea for fixing that problem.
"I would like to see more of the local
book clubs read local authors," she said.
"Why not try something local? You don't
have to worry that someone in the club
has already read the book."
While local authors want to see their
books in store shelves, it's not all about
fame, fortune and sales numbers.
Alberts, who likes to troll her Amazon
reviewers, said, "I'm amazed. People
from all around have read my book. It's
not about money; it's about connecting
with people."


Copperfish Books looks like a proper bookstore should. It's bright and colorful, spacious, well-lit,
well-organized and uncluttered. The local author section is in its own little alcove behind the
bookcases on the right.

A fast pin along with two forfeits put

out to a quick 18-0 start at North

The Tarpons finished strong with a pair

'Hyperhidrosis' literally RE

'too much sweat' I


DEAR DR. ROACH: I
hope you will be able to
help me with my prob-
lem. I am 67 years old
and have been sweating
profusely from my head
for about six years. I
believe it is secondary
hyperhidrosis. No one
in my family has this
problem. The sweating
seems to happen at all
different times, but not at
night. The moisture runs
in rivulets from my scalp
anytime from morning to
evening, but mostly in the
morning. I tried stopping
my water pill, but it still
happened. It happened
when I stopped vitamins
and took only my medica-
tions for physical prob-
lems. My doctor tested my
thyroid, and it was fine.
Please help me, as it is
an embarrassing ailment,
and it happens no matter
the season or what I have
eaten. I do drink tea and
coffee, but not soda. There
are people who have said
I should take Botox, but
I have little faith in the
product, as it can cause
serious health problems
and death. M.E.
ANSWER:
"Hyperhidrosis" simply
means "too much sweat."
I think you probably have
primary hyperhidrosis,
meaning that the sweating
is the only problem, as
opposed to secondary,
which means it's due to
something else. Other
conditions that can lead to
secondary hyperhidrosis
include the thyroid disease
your doctor looked for,
and medications (which it
also doesn't seem to be).
Other rare causes, such as
tuberculosis and lympho-
ma, surely would have
produced other symptoms
by now.
The most common sites
for hyperhidrosis are the
palms, armpits and soles
of the feet. Nearly every-
body sweats in those plac-
es, but with hyperhidrosis,
the amount of sweat is
much greater than normal
and can have serious
emotional, professional
and social effects.
The first treatment I
would recommend would
be a prescription antiper-
spirant, either aluminum
chloride (Xerac) or topical
glycopyrrolate (available by
compounding pharmacies
in the U.S. and Canada).
The scalp is a harder place
than most to apply it, but
after applying, you can
dry with a hair dryer, and
use a plastic shower cap
to keep the medicine on
at nighttime. Occasionally,
oral medications such as
clonidine are used.


Dr. Roach

Botulinum toxin (Botox)
is usually quite safe in
expert hands. A last resort
is surgery to remove the
sympathetic nerves to the
scalp, a procedure that's
very effective.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
Some time ago, I had a
lot of noise coming from
my stomach, a kind of
growling sound. It stopped
for some time, but now it
comes on again once in
a while. No pain, just the
noise. T.
ANSWER: These noises
go by the official-sounding
name ofborborygmi, and
are both common and
normal the vast majority of
the time. They reflect the
movement of the stomach
and the intestines. Since
there is no pain, you don't
have to do anything about
them.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I
have heard that magne-
sium destroys vitamin B,
and vitamin B keeps you
warm. I am cold all the
time. I take magnesium for
a delayed heartbeat. Do
you think that magnesium
is my problem? H.A.
ANSWER: I also have
heard that vitamin defi-
ciencies, including
B vitamins and vitamin D,
can lead to intolerance of
cold. However, I couldn't
find much good scientific
evidence to support that,
and none at all that mag-
nesium causes problems
with vitamin absorption or
activity.
Low thyroid, hypo-
thyroidism, is the first
condition to come to mind
with cold intolerance,
and anemia is the second.
Although it can't hurt to try
a B-vitamin supplement, I
would recommend getting
checked out for these
conditions.
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

Yesterday's Jumbles: OPERA NINTH SUPERB FACADE
Answer: After a long day working at the cemetery, the
groundskeeper wished he could REST IN PEACE

The same, but different


Dear Heloise: My
mother and I would like
to know if salted and
unsalted butter have dif-
ferent cooking properties?
Also, why would a recipe
call for unsalted butter,
but then require salt? -
Michelle and Janet C. in
Washington
Very good question,
and it is a little contradic-
tory! Salted and unsalted
butter don't have any
different cooking prop-
erties. They are the same,
except that one has 1/4 to
1/2 teaspoon of salt per
stick.
Each company may
produce a little "different"
butter. So, when added
to a recipe, there is no
way to tell how much salt
is really in that butter.
By starting a recipe with
unsalted butter, you know
that the recipe is starting
with and ending with the
proper amount of salt.
- Heloise

Leftover bacon
Dear Heloise: My
family enjoys bacon for
breakfast, but because of
our busy schedules, we
only have it on weekends.
This leaves leftover bacon
that I use the rest of the
week as a topping for
baked potatoes, added to
salad or as a garnish for
beans or asparagus.-
Janice R. in New Mexico
Here's another use for
the bacon: as a topping
for potato soup or other
cream-style soups. It's
tasty on spinach, too.


BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott


Hints from Heloise

The great thing about
soup is that there are
so many different ways
to add flavors, use up
leftovers and save money.
My pamphlet Heloise's
Spectacular Soups has
family and friend reci-
pes, plus hints to help
you save time when
making soup. To order
one, send $5 and a long,
self-addressed, stamped
(70 cents) envelope to:
Heloise/Soups, P.O. Box
795001, San Antonio, TX
78279-5001. Top soup off
with croutons as a gar-
nish, or serve soup with
breadsticks, crackers or
any type of bread to make
it a more well-rounded
meal. Heloise

Bagel removal
Dear Heloise: I love
mini-bagels, but they
are hard to get out of the
toaster. My mom suggest-
ed wooden chopsticks,
but they are hard to
manage. Now I "stab" the
bagel with a toothpick
and pull it out safely.
Works every time! Alex
C., Colorado Springs,
Colo.

Man who doesn't want marriage

keeps attracting women who do


DEARABBY: I ama
53-year-old male who
is fit, healthy and has a
good job. I also have two
failed marriages behind
me, which have cost me
dearly, both emotionally
and financially. I have no
intention of making that
mistake again! I have been
on my own for five years,
and in that time I have had
five relationships always
with women near my age.
My problem is that wom-
en my age seem to have
only one agenda: marriage.
One very nice lady finally
clarified her feelings by say-
ing that at this time in her
life, she didn't have time for
"just dating" because in a
few years she'd be 60.
I understand her dilem-
ma, but I'm not interested
in younger women. I
try hard to make it clear
at the beginning of any
relationship that marriage
is out of the question, and
I don't proceed with the
relationship unless the lady
wholeheartedly agrees. But
somehow I have broken five
good hearts, whose only
transgression was falling in
love with me. NOBODY'S
RETIREMENT HUSBAND
DEAR N.R.H.: I admire
your self-image. You must
be doing something right
to have the ladies lining up
the way they are. However,
you may not be as effective
a communicator as you
think you are if five different
women failed to get the
message you said you con-
vey. I have several thoughts
about your predicament:
If your only fear of
marriage is that you would
again be cleaned out finan-
cially, a strong prenuptial
agreement could help you
avoid any problem if a
third marriage didn't work.
However, if variety is what
you prefer, then you should
restate your message every
few months as these rela-
tionships blossom. (Or you
could move to a monastery
and stop dangling yourself
in the dating pool.)
DEAR ABBY: Once a year
I type my ZIP code into
a website to see who the
registered sex offenders
are in my area so I can be
better informed and pro-
tect myself and my family.
A photo, address and the


DearAbby

charges attributed to the
offender are posted on the
site. My jaw dropped to
the floor when I saw a man
listed that I work with. The
picture looked recent.
I haven't said anything to
him. I have known this man
for five years and thought
he was a good guy who
respected women. I'd like to
think it was a one-time mis-
take and that he wouldn't do
it again. But would he?
Should I tell my teenage
daughter who sometimes
visits me in the office?
Should I tell the other
women who work here? If
a co-worker knew this kind
of information and showed
it to me, I'd be grateful to
know. What do you think I
should do? -STUNNED
IN THE CITY
DEAR STUNNED: Tell
your daughter to keep
her distance from this
co-worker. But before you
drop this bombshell at the
office, you should first dis-
cuss what you have learned
with your employer.
DEAR ABBY: I hope you
can help with this etiquette
question. My son and his
wife believe that when you
finish a good meal, you
toss your napkin on the
now-empty plate. They say
this sends a message that
the food was great.
Is placing a napkin on
the dirty plate appropri-
ate behavior? NOT A
NAPKIN-TOSSING DAD
DEAR DAD: Your son
and his wife need to read
the chapter on table man-
ners in their etiquette book.
When a meal is finished
and the plate is empty,
diners should place their
used napkins on the table
BESIDE their dessert plate.
It should not be placed on
top of a dirty plate.
PS. If they don't own an
etiquette book, it appears
they could use one.


"Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost
that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make
intercession for them."- Hebrews 7:25.
Look up, you can't go under. Look who is praying for
you. He not only became our substitute at Calvary but our
great intercessor forever.

Opening lead: Ace of 6
One can have a lot of fun playing
bridge without counting, but
counting is an essential skill for
competitive players.
West realized that continuing
spades was pointless he had no
side entry so he shifted to a low
club at trick two. South allowed
East's nine to hold the trick and won
the club continuation. South needed a
trick from the queen of spades so he


led toward it at this point. West
winning the king and clearing the
clubs. Next came a heart to dummy's
jack, East winning and returning the
suit. South won the queen in hand
and took a moment to think.
Declarer was surprised that East
hadn't cashed the long club. When he
didn't cash it, that surely meant that
he didn't have it. West had shown up
with six spades, four clubs and two
hearts. That left room for at most one
diamond. South led a diamond to
dummy's king and continued with
the diamond seven, confidently
running it when East played low.
Nine tricks in the bag!
The opening lead was certainly
reasonable, but note that the defense
would have prevailed had West
started with a low club. He could set
up two club tricks before the spade
queen could be established, using his
high spades as entries. East could not
be prevented from scoring his king of
hearts and the defense would have
five tricks.
