LIVE LIKE A TOURIST


Dali worth


the drive

Faces melt. Seashells occupy
brains. And, somehow, Abraham
Lincoln magically appears.
Walking around the Dali Museum
in St. Petersburg is
like taking a stroll
a inside Salvador
Dali's mind, though
[thankfully there are
exits back to reality.
S The museum,
9. itself, reflects Dali
p Vin its architecture:
S^ functional versus
hrit unexpected.
Chrsy "Designed by
FEINBERG architect Yann
COLUMMST Weymouth of HOK,
the new building
combines the rational with the
fantastical: a simple rectangle with
18-inch thick hurricane-proof walls
out of which erupts a large free-form
geodesic glass bubble known as the
'enigma,'" according to www.thedali.
org. "The 'enigma,' which is made up
of 1,062 triangular pieces of glass,
stands 75 feet at its tallest point, a
21st century homage to the dome that
adorns Dali's museum in Spain."
Inside the museum is a narrow,
spiral staircase designed to look like
"Dali's obsession with spirals and
the double helical shape of the DNA
molecule," states www.thedali.org. If
you are capable of taking stairs, don't
skip these steps. It's one of the most
unique staircases you'll ever climb.
The Dali Museum is filled with his
work that spans his early years as an
art student in Spain through his adult
years.
Part of the admission price includes
the use of an audio guide unit.
Don't miss out on this either. The
audio guide tour provides addition-
al information about Dali than is
available on signs. You will notice
that there are two different numbers
and symbols for the audio guide by
some pieces of Dali's art. One is the
serious, straight-forward information.
The other, denoted by the mustache
symbol, is geared to kids between
the ages of 5 and 13. (Inside tip: Play
the mustache numbers too. You will
learn fun, entertaining information
about Dali such as how "he drove his
teachers crazy" and what he did to be
the center of attention).
The museum also offers free docent
tours throughout the day, though these
can be crowded.
The following are just some of Dali's
amazing artwork on display:
S"Santiago El Grande," a 1957
CHRISTY 16

Don't take the elevator. Be sure to climb the
staircase, which reflects Dali's interest in
spirals and DNA.


Taking out the trash



Inmates beautify dumpy intersection


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
EAST OF PUNTA GORDA Near the
intersection of Bermont Road (County
Road 74) and State Road 31, there were
a few cans and bottles scattered about
Tuesday and what appeared to be a
recently shredded tire.
But the amount of trash and debris had
been much worse until recently.
Saturday, inmates from the
DUMPY 16


PHOTO PROVIDED
Inmates collected more than 75
large garbage bags full or trash and
around 100 tires during a cleanup
project Saturday near a heavily trav-
eled stretch of road east of Punta
Gorda. The intersection of State
Road 31 and Bermont Road has an
area for truckers to pull off and rest,
and the place had become littered.
Waste Management had to use a
claw truck Monday to help haul off
all the garbage.


A display of talent


Meadow Park Elementary School first-grader Emily O'Neal poses with This art of a prominent saxophone, by Charlotte High School senior

Student art on exhibit at the fair

SUN CORRESPONDENT
MURDOCK -Walking into the
Charlotte County Fairgrounds on
Sunday, visitors couldn't help but see
the whirling rides that transport the
daring up to dizzying, gravity-defying
heights. But as they entered the fair
through the expo building, most
couldn't help but pause to examine the
amazing display of artwork done by
hundreds of local school students.
Just beyond the door, eyes were


immediately drawn to two of Charlotte
High School's huge paintings, complete
with museum-quality frames. Senior
Ashley Wilson, winner of a blue ribbon,
portrayed the close-up of a musician's
hands cradling a saxophone. The
details plastic chairs, the musician's
blue jeans and adolescent beaded
bracelet hint at the musician's
age. Senior Sarah Everts' painting -
awarded a second-place red ribbon
- showed a ballet dancer, complete
with pointe shoes, seated outside in a
floral chair with legs sprawled over the


chair's arm as the dancer looks pen-
sively in the opposite direction.
As impressive as the high school art
is, however, many younger students
headed for the middle and elementary
school displays to see their own art.
Meadow Park Elementary School
first-grader Emily O'Neal and her par-
ents, Ben and Melissa, found Emily's
mixed media self-portrait on the wall.
"Our teacher told us to make a pic-
ture of ourselves," she said. She worked

Commission hopefuls sound the charge


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER
CHARLOTTE COUNTY- If the chal-
lengers have their way, the -----
race for District 4 county dm
commissioner will come
down to economic issues
facing Charlotte and its
residents.
Dave Ivankovic and Don
Monroe have declared
their candidacy for the MONROE
seat currently held by
Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch.
Ivankovic, a Republican, will face off
with Deutsch in the Aug. 26 primary,


while Monroe, with no party affiliation,
will await the winner in the general
election Nov. 4.
As the owner of an insurance agency
|for 11 years, Ivankovic, 41,
S said the county should be
run like a business, and
S that he holds the experi-
ence to ensure fiscal re-
S sponsibility. In advocating
that the county live within
its means, he promises
IVANKOVIC to rein in government
spending.
"I have to make decisions every day
that affect my financial future," he
said. "Sometimes you have to do a lot


with a little."
The first-time candidate also wants
to help taxpayers by expanding the
tax base. This can be done, he said,
by giving the county the resources
to market more aggressively its three
main assets the beaches, the harbor
and the Punta Gorda Airport.
"I'm a proponent for economic de-
velopment," he said. "The only way to
lessen the burden on existing taxpayers
is through economic growth."
In the insurance business, Ivankovic
works directly with residents and
business owners, giving him a firm

ELECTROENCEPRALOGRIAPY LECTROMYOGRAPHY


ood day to all.
Did you know
steam-powered
dredges vastly improved
phosphate production
on the Peace River?
Dredges typically
consisted of a barge
and a 60 horsepower
steam engine with an
8-inch centrifugal pump.
Phosphate pebbles and
sand were sucked from
the river bottom, passed
over a screen to separate
the pebbles, and the
remainder returned to
the river.
Pebbles were then
diverted to barges
alongside the dredge,
transported to a drying
facility for washing, and
placed in raised bins.
Once dry, the ore was
reloaded to barges or
train cars for transport to
Punta Gorda.
Mining reached such a
peak that a railroad was
built to haul processed
ore from Hull to deeper
water a few miles south
at Liverpool. A spur
line connected with the
Florida Southern Railway
system. At one point,
eight companies mined
the lower river: DeSoto
Phosphate Mining Co.,
Arcadia Phosphate Co.,
Peace River Phosphate
Co., Charlotte Harbor
Phosphate Co., Gulf
Phosphate Co., National
Peace River Co., .S.
Phosphate Co., and Boca
Grande Phosphate Co.
Being the time of so-
called "robber barons"
John Rockefeller, J.P.
Morgan, and Cornelius
Vanderbilt, though,
it wasn't long before
someone realized the
benefits of consolidating
the fertilizer business.
Peter B. Bradley,
president of Bradley
Fertilizer Works out of
Massachusetts, obtained
controlling interest in the
Peace River Phosphate
Co. in December 1894.
Included in the $1.7 mil-
lion package were over
24,000 acres, dwellings,
bins, dredges, barges,
and a railroad.
The corporate name
was changed to the
Peace River Phosphate
Mining Co., and land
along the river was
purchased as far north as
Bowling Green. In 1899,
Bradley consolidated 22
mining companies and
formed the American
Agricultural Chemical
Co. (AACC).
In early 1902, a fire
destroyed Hull's drying
bins and 7,000 tons of
phosphate ore. Although
new bins were built at
Liverpool, managers
realized the harbor's
depth prohibited large
freighters, giving com-
panies shipping out of
Tampa a competitive
edge. That caused AACC
to cast its eyes on the
Alafia, Manatee, and Gulf
Coast Railroad (AM&G),
which had proposed but
failed to lay track from
Lakeland to Gasparilla
Island.

I NEWS BRIEF

'Shrek
The Musical'
comes to Fishville
DreamWorks theatricals
and the Charlotte High
School Drama Club will
present a preview of
their upcoming "Shrek
The Musical" perfor-
mance at 6 p.m. today at
Fishermen's Village, 1200
W. Retta Esplanade, Punta
Gorda. The performance
will last 30 minutes to an
hour. For more informa-
tion, call 941-575-3007.


The AACC purchased
AM& G's charter,
changed the railroad's
name to Charlotte
Harbor, and Northern,
better known to locals as
"the cold, hungry, and
naked," and completed
a line from Liverpool
to Boca Grande by
mid-1907. Shipment of
phosphate, though, did
not begin until late 1909,
after loading equipment
was installed and the
line extended north
to Mulberry. Once the
railroad was completed,
Bradley and his stock-
holders decided to build
a resort hotel.
Albert Gilchrist,
Punta Gorda's "favorite
son," owned six blocks
of Gasparilla Island's
highest land. Bradley
formed the Boca Grande
Land Co., purchased
Gilchrist's land with
stock in the Peace River
Phosphate Mining Co.,
and by September 1911
had completed the
20-room Gasparilla Inn.
By then, though, Peace
River phosphate deposits
were depleted and the


industry moved north,
ending Punta Gorda's
days as the world's lead-
ing phosphate port.

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMEN-
TAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE
PERMIT REVISIONS
The Department of Environmental
Protection gives notice of its
intent to issue three permit revi-
sions to Charlotte County Utilities,
Terry Couture, 25550 Harbor
View Road, Unit 1, Port Charlotte,
Florida 33980 to establish a mas-
ter reuse system. The system
would receive reclaimed water
from three of the applicant's
wastewater treatment facilities:
East Port WRF, West Port WRF
and Rotunda WRF. The proposed
general reuse service area
encompasses more territory than
the current permitted reuse ser-
vice areas. The activity would
occur in in Charlotte County. The
Department has assigned permit
file numbers FL0040291-015,
FLA014048-015, and
FLA014098-010 to the proposed
project.
The intent to issue, draft permit
revisions, and application files are
available for public inspection dur-
ing normal business hours, 8:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday
through Friday, except legal holi-
days, at the Department's South
District Office, 2295 Victoria Ave,
Suite 364, Ft. Myers, Florida
33901-3875, at phone number
(239)344-5600.
The Department will issue the per-
mit revisions as drafted unless a
timely petition for an administra-
tive hearing is filed under Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57, Flori-
da Statutes, within fourteen days
of receipt of notice. The proce-
dures for petitioning for a hearing
are set forth below.
A person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the Depart-
ment's proposed permitting deci-
sion may petition for an adminis-
trative proceeding (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes. The petition
must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed
(received by the Clerk) in the
Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Flori-
da Administrative Code, a person
may request an extension of the
time for filing a petition for an
administrative hearing. The
request must be filed (received by
the Clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel before the end of the
time period for filing a petition for
an administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons
other than those entitled to writ-
ten notice under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must
be filed within fourteen days of
publication of the notice or within
fourteen days of receipt of the
written notice, whichever occurs
first. Section 120.60(3), Florida
Statutes, however, also allows
that any person who has asked
the Department in writing for
notice of agency action may file a
petition within fourteen days of
receipt of such notice, regardless
of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of
the petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above at the
time of filing. The failure of any
person to file a petition or request
for an extension of time within
fourteen days of receipt of notice
shall constitute a waiver of that
person's right to request an
administrative determination
(hearing) under Sections

MURDOCK- A young
couple were arrested
Tuesday after trying to
steal 36 hurricane shut-
ters from Habitat For
Humanity, according to
the Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office.
Authorities were called
just after midnight
Monday to the Habitat
Resale Store on El Jobean
Road in Murdock. A
passerby on a bicycle said
he had seen two people
"up to no good" parked
behind the building, the
report shows.
When deputies arrived,
they saw 36 stacks of
hurricane shutters on the
ground, a Ford Explorer
backed up to the business
and a young woman
running toward them.
The woman Candace
Leeann Davis, 20, of
Bermont Road in Punta
Gorda told authorities
her boyfriend -Wesley
Scott McElroy, 18, of the
300 block of Kindred
Boulevard in Port
Charlotte was hiding in
the area, the report shows.
The two were then
questioned about the
incident (their lengthy
responses were redacted
from the report), and each
was arrested and charged
with grand theft.
Davis was additionally
charged with burglary with
assault. McElroy also was
charged with burglary and
violation of probation.
Each was being held
Tuesday in the Charlotte
County Jail without bond.

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.


- A woman called 911
Monday evening claiming
she had been robbed
while walking home from
a gas station, according
to the Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office.
She was questioned by
authorities and arrested
early Tuesday.
Sara Elizabeth Grob,
29, of the 23500 block
of Charleston Circle in
Charlotte Harbor, told
authorities she had been
robbed around 9 p.m.
after leaving the Circle K
on Harborview Road by
a black man who got out
of the passenger side of
a car that pulled up to
her. She said she pepper
sprayed the robber but he
made off with $570 in her
wallet.
Authorities brought
in Grob for further
questioning, and they
determined she was lying
due to inconsistencies in
her story.
She was charged with
making a false report to
law enforcement and was
being held Tuesday at the
Charlotte County Jail on
$3,500 bond.

Report: Pot, other
drugs found in
backpack
NORTH PORT -An
18-year-old North Port
man was charged with
trafficking in a con-
trolled substance after
authorities discovered
marijuana and MDMA -
the primary ingredient


in the drug ecstasy in
the man's backpack while
trying to arrest him on an
out-of-county warrant,
according to the North
Port Police Department.
Along with the traf-
ficking charge, Anthony
Joseph Jackson, of the
2700 block of Burri
Terrace, was charged
with possession of
marijuana, possession of
a controlled substance,
possession of drug par-
aphernalia and resisting
arrest, a report states,
after authorities tried
serving the Charlotte
County warrant around
2 p.m. Monday.
Jackson reportedly
fled the scene on foot,
but authorities caught
up with him at the 2600
block of Pomona Ave. in
North Port a short time
later. The report states
that police searched his
backpack and found 36
grams of prepackaged pot
and 4.8 grams of MDMA,
along with plastic bags
and a digital scale.
Jackson was trans-
ported to the Sarasota
County Jail after his
arrest and remains in jail
without bond.
It's unclear what
charges were connect-
ed with the Charlotte
County warrant, but ac-
cording to the Charlotte
Sheriff's website, Jackson
has drug and traffic
charges dating back to
2011.

Woman steals reporter's car


By GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

SARASOTA COUNTY-
Local television reporter
Josh Taylor was inves-
tigating a rental scam
for ABC-7 on Siesta Key
when a woman wrestled
his camera tripod away
from him and drove off
with his car.
He filmed the whole
episode, and now the
State Attorney's Office,
along with Taylor's
employer, are mulling a
grand theft auto charge
against the woman, later
identified as Jean Price.
Taylor went out to
the scene Friday after
a 91-year-old Venice
woman claimed she had
rented a 12-bedroom
home on Siesta Key for a
family reunion and later
found that the home has
only has five bedrooms.
She requested a refund,
but was told she couldn't
get it, even though her
contract reportedly
ensures she is entitled
to it.
Although Taylor would
later discover the $2,500
check was never cashed
and eventually canceled,
he went looking for
answers and found an
upset Price who didn't
mind driving off in his
company car, all while
on camera.
"I wasn't going to in-
terview anybody," Taylor
told the Sun. "I was just
going to take four or five
shots of the property, get
back in my car and leave.
Two minutes tops."
He didn't even have
the camera turned on yet
when he heard someone
shout, "Hey." Taylor said
he looked around and
didn't see anyone. Then,
from out of the corner
of his eye, he could see
Price.
"She comes barreling


across her yard and asks
if I have permission to
be here. I know my rights
as a reporter. It's a public
road, I tell her."
The rest can be seen
on video.
Taylor, at 6 foot 3
inches and 250 pounds,
turns on the camera as
the woman begins trying
to wrestle it away from
him. Taylor, remaining
entirely professional,
tells her he's there to do
a story.
Price tells him to leave
but Taylor keeps his cool
and asks her to calm
down. Price finally grabs
the tripod away from
Taylor, closes it up and
puts it in Taylor's run-
ning work vehicle, while
Taylor continues to film
the incident.
Taylor recalls it like it
was happening in slow
motion, thinking there's
no way Price was going
to get in the car, Taylor
said, but Price does and
drives away.
Taylor calls 911, but
they keep him on the
line, unable to determine
whether the address -
the 6500 block of Sabal
on Siesta Key is a
road, street or lane.
Taylor hikes down to
the end of the road to get
the information when
he runs into the woman
who stole his vehicle
coming from the other
direction. He again turns
on the camera.
"You can get in your
car and leave," Price says
to Taylor. "It's two blocks
down. And it's running."
Taylor, meanwhile,
is still talking to a 911
operator on his cell-
phone while filming. The
operator hears the entire
exchange. Taylor informs
the woman she'll be
hearing from the police.
As promised, Taylor
finds the vehicle


running, parked in
a large puddle near
the Bank of America
at Stickney Point and
Midnight Pass roads,
according to a report.
Taylor has to climb in to
the driver's seat from the
passenger side to avoid
ankle-deep water and
goes back to the rental
property, more deter-
mined than ever to get
the shots for his story.
Police arrive. Price
apparently left the
scene but came back
with a male companion,
claiming Taylor had
threatened her.
ABC-7 is pursuing
the grand theft charge,
Taylor said. Other
charges may be pending.
The local news sta-
tion ran the video that
evening, and now other
national media outlets
like the Huffington Post
and "Good Morning
America" have picked
up the story. The United
Kingdom's Daily Mirror
ran a story, and CNN
contacted Taylor.
"It's getting bigger by
the minute," Taylor said.
"I've been getting mostly
texts saying, 'You han-
dled it in a professional
manner.' I guess that's
what you hope for."
Meanwhile, back on
the scam story, Taylor
discovered Price has a
connection to the man
who owns the alleged
scam rental home, local
chiropractor Dr. Craig
Siegal.
Siegal said Price used
to work for him but is
just a friend and neigh-
bor who watches out for
the home, according to
Taylor.
He's trying to make it
right, Siegal said of the
91-year-old complainant,
but he just doesn't have
the money.

I OUR VIEW

No harm, no

foul in second

Rotonda case

OUR POSITION: Ignoring
reality and facts, another judge
puts county taxpayers at risk.

n 2010, a circuit court judge
ordered Charlotte County to
pay $8.8 million to a would-
be developer who made a bad
bet during the real estate bust
and lost 150 lots to foreclosure.
The judge faulted the county
for telling the property owner
a county-owned sewer system
serving the property was served
by sewers, when it was not.
In January, a different circuit
court judge ruled in favor of four
more property owners for the
same reason. If the judge doesn't
reconsider his order, a jury will
be asked how much to award
the property owners for their
inability to develop more than
1,000 lots in the same area. If the
jury uses the penalty in the first
case as a gauge for its award,
the county could be forced to
pay nearly $60 million to the
plaintiffs.
Both decisions were egregious
miscarriages of justice that
would transfer the burden for
real estate speculation gone bad
onto innocent county taxpayers.
Any reasonable person would
be expected to perform due
diligence to confirm sewer, water
and power service were avail-
able to build one home, never
mind 150, or more than 1,000.
Equally unbelievable has been
the court's obliviousness to the
reasons all the property owners
were unable to develop or sell
their lots; during the period
when plaintiffs are claiming
the sewer issue prevented them
from developing or selling
their lots, virtually nobody was
building homes in Charlotte
County because of the real estate
bust, the subsequent financial
system meltdown and the Great
Recession.
The first case, involving lots in
the RotondaVillas subdivision,
is a done deal. The county won't
get that money back no matter
what and the plaintiff can laugh
all the way to the bank for being
able to game the judicial system
for personal gain. Circuit Judge
James Shenko will have to face
voters whose money he gave to
the developer.
Testimony and evidence in the
second case not only unveiled
factual errors in the first case,
but also revealed details that
should have led Circuit Judge
Joseph Foster to make critical
distinctions between the two
suits. He did not. In fact, he
appears to have ignored all of
them. Unbelievable.
One of those facts is that
Charlotte County did not re-
move pumps from the sewer
lift stations in the area that
rendered the system inoperable,
a prior owner did. Secondly, the
entire system was never online
- because nobody lived there
and there were no customers to
serve. Who knew that? One of the
plaintiffs in the second lawsuit
is the former owner of Rotonda
West Utility, which provided the
county with the documentation
about the status of the sewers, ac-
cording to the county's attorneys.
An important distinction in
the second case is that all of the
plaintiffs still own their property,
which now is served by a new
sewer system. Like the plaintiff
in the first case, only the econ-
omy, not the sewers, prevented
them from building homes
or selling lots in Rotonda. We
suspect there are willing buyers
out there now who would be in-
terested in the parcels. Since the
owners suffered no damages, we
expect the jury to award none.
Then the property owners
can proceed with the business
they chose to be in: real estate
speculation and development,


a risky business anytime, with
no guarantees. Unless they can
get credulous judges to ignore
reality.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Poor manners
are inexcusable

Editor:
A letter published Sunday
seemed to make the case for
poor manners. I was taught
to thank someone for a gift
whether or not it was asked
for. The only obvious conclu-
sion the writer made that I
can see is that their carrier is
as lazy and ill-mannered as
they are. By the way our Sun
carrier sent us a thank-you
note.
Casey Berens
Punta Gorda

No'thank you'
for our gift

Editor:
It appears that the art
of a simple "thank you", a
gracious acknowledgment,
is disappearing.
Our family did not receive
any thanks for the selfless
and voluntary Christmas
gift given to our newspaper
carrier. I even called to
check that she received it.
No reply ever came.
Our carrier does a won-
derful job. However, that's
what it is, a job. There are
responsibilities and expec-
tations required by the em-
ployer. To promptly deliver
the newspaper through all
weather conditions is what
the employee signed on for.
This is also what the cus-
tomer pays for.
When a gift is given from
the heart, recognition from
the recipient's heart should
be the proper etiquette.
Lauren D. Hall
Punta Gorda


Speak clearly
in recordings

Editor:
I would like to support
the letter from Magda Stelzl
regarding leaving messages
on telephone answering ma-
chines. Several times a week
my wife and I have to replay
over and over messages left
on our phone because the
caller talks too fast, too low,
or in a manner difficult to
understand.
These difficult-to-under-
stand messages are usually
from a business or office
that should have an interest
in having their message


heard. They are often in
a woman's voice which is
naturally higher pitched
than a man's. High-pitched
sounds are the first sounds
that are lost from people's
hearing due to age and the
noisy world we live in.
Please, if you want your
phone messages under-
stood, slow down and speak
especially clearly. It's much
harder to understand over
a phone than being face
to face with the person
speaking. Businesses, please
give your employees some
training in telephone skills.

Tax holiday is
no real bargain

Editor:
Governor Scott is pan-
dering: wage increases,
schools, and tax holidays.
He is trying to buy the
election ... this time with
your money.
I was at the mall last
week. They were giving the
merchandise away, 70 per-
cent off.
Forty percent of all retail
profits are secured during
Christmas. People flock
to stores like they flock to
restaurants at noon and
6 p.m. It's a cultural urge,
national crazy time. Chains
are wily, they try to get top
dollar from people who can-
not control their behavior.
I felt sorry for the stores
last week; there were few
shoppers.
During tax holidays,
prices will be high, 40 per-
cent higher than during
off-seasons. You pay 32 per-
cent more to save 8 percent.
The state loses millions and
we all feel good about the
governor.
Amazon makes 1 percent
profit on all sales. The state
of Florida gets 7 percent:
no investment, no manage-
ment, no headaches and
every time they create a job
taxes go up.

Don't want water
in neighborhood

Editor:
The newspaper recently
had an article pertaining to
North Port's survey for the
expansion of waterlines.
Having taken the survey and
stating that we do not want
city water, I have concerns


regarding the survey.
An estimated 30,000
residents were surveyed. This
must be wrong. A number of
our neighbors never received
the survey. When informed
of the survey they contacted
the utilities department to tell
them so, and also that they
also had no desire to have city
water. If there are soon to be
60,000 residents in the city of
North Port, it's hard to believe
only half of our residents have
city water.
The news article alluded to
sewer lines, which was not in
the survey. "Residents who
want water will still be able
to use their septic tank for
sewer." Won't they have to pay
an annual fee to have their
septic tanks inspected, which
has happened in other areas?
The $4,000 to run waterlines
through one's property seems
extremely expensive, when
Port Labelle recently charged
property owners $800. Maybe
they didn't have to hire
consultants to tell them the
results of their survey.
The article had the utilities
payment plan. This would
give you 60-plus months to
pay off the $4,000 or $5,000
if you hook up. If you don't
take the payment plan, the
$5,000 would probably show
up on your first utility bill. No
thank you, most of us don't
want this costly waterline
in our Abbotsford Street
neighborhood.

Causes of decline
are not a secret

Editor:
Have you ever wondered
why the media never says
anything about the trade
deficit or trade policies? What
is the matter with us? Where
are our leaders? Who are they
working for? Are they only
working for their corporate
sponsors who fund their
campaigns to get elected?
The U.S. is no longer a strong,
wealth-producing, indepen-
dent nation. Printing money
and giveaway programs now
seems to be the way we prop
up our economy.
Our trade deficits run
an average of $600 billion
every year money leaving
the country only to come
back to buy us out plus our
money used to produce huge
foreign militaries. We have
handed our sovereign rights
to our domestic markets to
international bodies like the
World Trade Organization and
are committed to disastrous


one-way "free trade" agree-
ments such as NAFTA, CAFTA
and the KORUS FTA. Now the
Congress is about to give the
president free rein to establish
more free trade with the TPP
agreement.
It has been well-docu-
mented that NAFTA has
sent at least hundreds of
thousands, perhaps even
millions of American jobs to
Mexico. Manufacturers nat-
urally choose to operate in
low-wage nations. They can
then sell their goods back to
America for cheap, ignoring
the devastation caused by
so many unemployed.
The causes behind
America's decline are not
a secret, and therefore the
way back to prosperity is
clear.

Vote for Lindsey
Van as flag bearer

Editor:
My goddaughter, Lindsey
Van, has rallied for years to
include women's ski jumping
in the Olympics. Because of
her, women will finally ski
jump in the Olympics for the
first time in Sochi.
Enduring the frustration
of being banned because of
her gender from previous
Olympics, Lindsey (not to
be confused with Lindsay
Vonn) continued to train,
compete and champion for
the inclusion of women's ski
jumping. Finally, as a 29-year-
old veteran, she and the rest
of the women ski jumpers
can compete on the Olympic

A simple online vote can

the determination to fight
for those freedoms.

Boehner, Biden
getting makeovers?

Editor:
During President Obama's
State of the Union address, I
noticed that House Majority
Leader Boehner had a terrific
tan. This is something he
is known for while he has
been a congressman. The tan
disappeared for awhile when
he assumed the majority
leader title from Pelosi, but
apparently being the majority
leader in Congress, gives him
a lot of time on his hands to
go to a tanning salon. I may
be wrong, but I don't think the
sun in Washington, D.C., or in
his home base of Ohio affords
such a great tan as he has.
Now before all of you
Republicans think I'm picking
on you, I also have noticed
that Vice President Biden's
hair has gotten much thicker
lately. Could it be that he
believes if he is to be taken
seriously for a run at the pres-
idency, he must have a full
head of hair? I think he should
retire at the end of his term,
maybe become a spokesman
for "Hair Club For Men."

Department realignment aims at efficiencies


art of the ongoing
responsibilities
of maintaining a
large organization is to
continually assess the
operation and look for
efficiencies. One of those
changes is moving the
engineering division
from our community de-
velopment department
to public works. This
move coincides with the
start of our new director
of community devel-
opment, Ty Harris, and
Dan Quick's move to the
position of public works
director.
Additional operational
and financial efficien-
cies will be achieved
by moving the 211 call
center from the public
safety department to
now report to the human


services department. The
human services depart-
ment already coordinates
with 211 in the commu-
nication and partnership
with area agencies,
thus centralizing that
function.
As always, our goal is
to be as effective and
efficient as possible,
in alignment with the
focus area goals set
forth by the Board of
County Commissioners.


Good stewardship of
our public service is of
the utmost importance,
and we strive to achieve
outstanding service.

Tunnel update
The U.S. 41
Microtunnels & Weirs
project involves engi-
neering and permitting
for the directional
drilling of culverts under
U.S. 41 at the Fordham,
Elkcam and Pompano
waterways, replacement
of culverts at the U.S. 41
access roads, and re-
placement of two stand-
alone weirs across the
Elkcam Waterway and
the Fordham Waterway.
At the Pompano
Waterway, the U.S. 41
access roads were


closed the week of Jan.
6. For the week ending
Jan. 25: 15,000 square
feet of debris was
removed during clearing
and grubbing, 10 feet of
the existing FDOT end-
wall was removed, 80
feet of temporary sheet
piling was installed, 25
gallons of coal tar epoxy
was applied to the
permanent sheet piling
and 162 steel studs were
welded to these sheets.
The contractor plans to
install the permanent
sheet piling, construct
the microtunnel boring
pit and the receiving pit
in the next two weeks.
The microtunnel equip-
ment will be mobilized
starting the week of
Feb. 6. Constructions
of the new weir, direct


bury pipes and micro-
tunnel pipes at this
location are scheduled
to be complete in May
2014.
All businesses are open
along the access road;
signage is posted to help
motorists navigate the
area.
As part of this proj-
ect, Charlotte County
Utilities installed two
insert valves on the
8-inch water main at
the Pompano Waterway.
These valves allowed the
contractor to continue
work without needing to
shut off water service to
the 60 customers served
by that line.

Well upgrades
Charlotte County


Utilities staff recently
took on the project of
upgrading an existing
6-inch deep injection
well and irrigation pump
manifold to 16 inches
in diameter, rather than
outsourcing the work to
a contractor. Doing this
project in-house saved
thousands of dollars.
These upgrades post-
poned the need to con-
struct a larger wet well,
as well as allowed us to
better handle effluent
flows from the Rotonda
Water Reclamation
Facility.

strategic plan accom-
plishments and improv-
ing infrastructure for the
future. Council Mem-
bers Tom Cavanaugh,
Kim Devine and Nancy
Prafke, Paralegal/Exec-
utive Assistant Macalle

Sales tax
City Council conduct-
ed the first of two Town
Hall meetings to garner
input for projects that
should be considered as
part of a proposed exten-
sion of the 1-cent sales
tax (formerly referred
to as ISS). Attendees
suggested a wide range
of projects reverse
osmosis plant, beau-
tification, Harborwalk
enhancements, dec-
orative lights, road
resurfacing, waterfront
activity center, mooring,
sidewalks, Alligator Creek
cut-through, pathways
to populated sites, flood
plain study, among
others. The second Town
Hall meeting will be held
at 6 p.m. Thursday at


Burnt Store Presbyterian
Church.

Joint meeting
The Charlotte County
Commission and City
Council held a joint
meeting, summarized
below:
1 percent sales tax:
County Commission is
leaning toward placing
the referendum on the
November 2014 ballot
and consideration of
a six-year extension.
Both the county and
city will have steering
committees prioritize
projects for their respec-
tive bodies. Project lists
should be finalized in the
April/May time frame.
You can view all of the
county and city projects
that have been undertak-
en since the inception of
the program in 1994 on
the city's website under
What's New Sales Tax.
South County sign
overlay: County staff has
drafted a sign overlay for
the commercial corridors
in south county and city
staff is reviewing the


regulations. The goal
is to then move on to
architectural and land-
scaping provisions and
consider these changes,
in an effort to provide
consistency between
properties in the city
and in unincorporated
Charlotte County.
National Flood
Insurance Program:
The U.S. Senate passed
legislation that would
delay many of the flood
insurance rate increases
for four years, during
which time FEMA would
be required to study the
affordability of policies
and re-evaluate the
accuracy of new flood
maps. The measure must
still pass the U.S. House
before it can take effect.
In the meantime, the
county and city will be
setting up a community
meeting, preferably in
late February, with both
state and federal elected
officials to garner input
in adoption of more
reasonable and afford-
able flood insurance rate
changes. An economic
impact study will be
developed by county and
city staff based on the
current NFIP program to
demonstrate its adverse

Morris was awarded Silver Star in Vietnam


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Geoffrey Morris of
Venice was a consci-
entious objector who
volunteered to become
a medic with the 237th
Medical Detachment.
He flew out of Quang
Tri, Vietnam, in 1970-
71 aboard a DMZ
(Demilitarized Zone)
Dustoff helicopter, res-
cuing wounded soldiers
and taking them to the
18th Surgical Hospital for
emergency treatment.


"Our unit was small,
approximately 32 mem-
bers and five helicopters.
The casualty rate was
very high 14 men were
killed and another three
or four were sent home
early with disabling in-
juries," Morris, 67, wrote
years later. "In all candor,
it was very dangerous
work as we were ex-
pected to fly into hostile
landing zones, in horri-
ble weather, in remote
areas with no gunship
cover, with constant fear
that you might be the


next casualty."
For one of the rescue
missions he went on,
Morris was awarded the
Silver Star for gallantry.
During the 14 months he
served in the war zone,
he was often in the midst
of a lot of killing, caring
for horrendously wound-
ed soldiers day in and
day out, but he sustained
hardly a scratch.
How could this be?
"Luck," the longtime
Southwest Florida lawyer
said at his Venice office
recently.


PHOTO PROVIDED
Pvt. Geoffrey Morris stands in front of his "hooch" while serving with the 237th Medical Detach-
ment in Vietnam in 1970 near Quang Tri, close to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone).


"We had a pilot who
arrived over there with
us and four days later he
was killed. Sometimes
someone would go up
on a routine mission, the
weather would turn bad,
the helicopter would
crash and all would be
killed. We lost seven peo-
ple one night because
of bad weather. You just
never knew because
things like that happened
for no rhyme or reason,"
he explained.
"I was stationed with
40 other men who flew
patients to the hospital
in Quang Tri. It was in
the very northern part of
South Vietnam near the
DMZ," Morris said. "We
flew in an unarmed Huey
helicopter. There was a
pilot, co-pilot, crew chief
and medic. Many times
we flew into a hot land-
ing zone day or night. It
was a high-risk job. You
didn't have to do it. You
volunteered to do it."
During a rescue at-
tempt by helicopter, the
chopper stayed no more
than 11 seconds on the
landing zone. Six to eight
seconds was average. The
longer a helicopter was
on the ground at an LZ,
the greater the chance of
it being shot up by NVA
(North Vietnamese Army)
orVC (Viet Cong) troops.
"We'd fly into an LZ
and yank the wounded
into the helicopter. We
could get nine or 10

wounded soldiers in a
Huey if we didn't use
stretchers," Morris said.
"Once we got 'em in the
chopper we'd sort 'em
out later."
The worst of the
worst were the night
ambulance flights. Often
they couldn't see the LZ.
About the only thing lit
up that was visible were
the green tracer bullets
coming from the muzzles
of enemy weapons point-
ed at them.
On June 1, 1970, Morris
was the medic aboard
an air ambulance on
a rescue mission near
Hue, the ancient capital
of Vietnam. His Huey
attempted to pick up
a couple of wounded
soldiers when all hell
broke loose.
"As we came in to land
on the side of a hill, the
wind kicked up and
picked our helicopter
about 12 feet off the
ground. At that moment,
a shell from a 57 mm
recoilless rifle was fired
at us. It hit the ground
right below our helicop-
ter and caused it to break
in two.
"All but Bobby
Campbell, the crew chief
from Kingsville, Texas,
scrambled out of the
burning chopper. When
I realized he had not
gotten out, I went back
and pulled him out. He
had frags (shrapnel) all
over him," Morris said.
"There were lots of
other wounded on the
ground, probably 30
or 40 in the company I
had to take care of. We
were surrounded by NVA
soldiers shooting at us.
After we were shot down,
the next helicopter that
came in to rescue us was
also shot down. We were
probably on the ground
a couple of hours before
two more helicopters
flew in and rescued all
of us."
Morris spent
14 months flying as a
medic aboard a rescue
helicopter in Vietnam.
He served in the Army
for a total of 19 months.
When he returned to the
States in July 1971, he
was discharged at Fort
Lewis, Wash.
He said he doesn't
recall being hassled
by anti-war protesters
when he got home. He
wasn't spit on or called
"baby killer" like so
many other soldiers
returning from the
Vietnam War.

He married his wife
Pamela, and after grad-
uation Morris passed
the Florida Bar and the
couple moved to Venice
in 1976. They have four
grown children, Julie,
Grayson, Andrew and
Emily.
Looking back on his
service in the military,
Morris observed, "It was
just luck I wasn't killed
in Vietnam.
"The guys I worked
with over there in
the 237th Medical
Detachment were just
ordinary guys who
stepped up to the plate.
They were common
men in uncommon
times. They were all
volunteers who knew
their chances of getting
hurt were pretty high if
they kept on doing what
they were doing. They
were my heroes."
Phil Marshall writes
in the introduction to
his book, "DMZ Dustoff
Vietnam": "The 237th
Medical Detachment,
Helicopter Ambulance
was the last Dustoff unit
to arrive in Vietnam and
the last one to leave.
'After the war it was
determined 98 percent of
the wounded who were
picked up in our Hueys
survived the war. 'The
Wall' in Washington,
D.C., would have been
much longer had it not
been for all these men
and their helicopters, not
to mention the medical
teams who took care of
the wounded after we
delivered them."

Local author banking on history


By CAROL BRUYERE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Fans and readers
of Vernon Peeples'
historical publications
dropped in at the
Punta Gorda branch of
Charlotte State Bank
on Thursday to meet
the well-known local
author, and obtain a
signed copy of his latest
book "Punta Gorda:
In the Beginning,
1865-1900."
Peeples has called
Punta Gorda home
since 1933, so it's no
surprise he knows so
much about our area
and its history. His
family lived on Marion
Street and owned a
grocery store back
then. When he was 10,
he started sitting on
a bench on the street
and talking to local
people (some who were
here when the town
originated), and writing
down their stories.
Combining his own
stories with years of re-
search, Peeples has cre-
ated a riveting narrative
about how Punta Gorda
started as a frontier
town in the Territory of
Florida, grew to be an
industrial and maritime
center, and evolved
into a charming recre-
ational community. In
addition to fascinating
historical narratives,
the book includes many
never-before-published
photographs, numerous
drawings, watercolors,
and maps.
Peeples' previous
work includes "History
of the Punta Gorda and
Charlotte Harbor Area."
"He has been col-
lecting stories and old
photographs since he
was 10," said Peeples'
wife, Edna Jane. "He
also has a collection of
Florida maps from all
over the world which
will eventually go to the
history center."

BEST IN
HEARING CARE


Edna Jane, to whom
the book is dedicated,
encourages her hus-
band's writing. "It keeps
him out of trouble," she
said, laughing.
Vernon said his
personal historical col-
lections include "3,000
books on Florida, 200
antiquarian maps, and
10 file cab-
inets full of
documents
on Florida
and local
history."
While
Vernon
PEEPLES.SR. sPeeples
has been
a writer and public
speaker all of his life,
he also served in the
Florida's Legislature as
a page at age 11 and
13, as well as a state
representative for 14
years. He started public
speaking engagements
at 10 years old at local
Kiwanis clubs.
Lectures were exten-
sive in high school and
college. He has done a
weekly radio program
on Florida history on
WGCU-FM for years,
and lectures at Florida
Gulf Coast University,
University of South
Florida, Florida A&M
University, and Florida
State University. Edison
State College Charlotte
County campus has
honored him by nam-
ing a library at its site
the Vernon Peeples
Learning Resources
Center.
While Charlotte


State Bank & Trust has
hosted previous events
featuring Peeples' work,
this event combined
the signing with a first
look at the bank's per-
manent Punta Gorda
historical photo display.
The public is invited
to stop in and view
the collection during
business hours.
Nancy Padgett, com-
munity and business
liaison for the bank
and a former Sun Coast
Media employee, along
with branch manager
Alyson Burch, and Dan
Mearns, marketing
specialist for the bank,
felt the connection
between the photo
collection and Peeples'
look at Punta Gorda
history was a perfect fit.

Health law to erode jobs


Losses could equal 2.3 million positions by 2021


By ANDREW TAYLOR
and RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS
WASHINGTON Several million
American workers will cut back
their hours on the job or leave the
nation's workforce entirely because
of President Barack Obama's health
care overhaul, congressional analysts
said Tuesday, adding fresh fuel to the
political fight over "Obamacare."
The workforce changes would
mean nationwide losses equal to
2.3 million full-time jobs by 2021,
in large part because people would
opt to keep their income low to stay
eligible for federal health care subsi-
dies or Medicaid, the Congressional
Budget Office said. It had estimated
previously that the law would lead to
800,000 fewer jobs by that year.
Republican lawmakers seized on


the report as major new evidence
of what they consider the failures of
Obama's overhaul, the huge change
in U.S. health coverage that they're
trying to overturn and planning
to use as a main argument against
Democrats in November's midterm
elections.
It's the latest indication that
"the president's health care law
is destroying full-time jobs," said
Republican Rep. John Kline of
Minnesota, chairman of the House
Education and the Workforce
Committee. "This fatally flawed
health care scheme is wreaking hav-
oc on working families nationwide,"
he said.
But the White House said the
possible reduction would be due to
voluntary steps by workers rather

Philip Seymour Hoffman's death


calls attention to rise in heroin use


NEWYORK (LA Times)
-The death of Oscar-
winning actor Philip
Seymour Hoffman
underscores a surge in
heroin use reminiscent of
the 1970s and early '80s.
More than 660,000
Americans used heroin
in 2012, health officials
say nearly double
the number from five
years earlier and users
tend to be more affluent
than before, living in the
suburbs and rural areas
rather than the inner city.
"It's reached epidemic
proportions here in the
United States," said Rusty
Payne, aWashington,
D.C.-based spokesman
for the Drug Enforcement
Administration.
Mexican cartels are
pushing ever-larger
amounts of heroin across
the Southwestern border,
sometimes hidden in fake
coconuts, bananas and
lollipops, officials said.
Heroin has flooded the
Northeast and reached a
large market of American
pain-pill addicts seeking
a less-expensive high.
Overdoses and emer-
gency-room visits have
skyrocketed across the
country, officials say, and
more are dying from a
drug whose purity can be
hard to judge.
Los Angeles tradition-
ally was the final desti-
nation for Mexico's trade,
but in recent years that
distribution has spread
across the United States,
said Sarah Pullen, a
special agent in the DEAs


In this March 17,1984, photo, Robert Kennedy Jr. and his
wife, Emily, get into a car as they are escorted by private
investigator Don Wiley outside the courthouse in Rapid City,
S.D. Kennedy received a suspended sentence and two years
probation on his guilty plea to a charge of heroin possession.


Los Angeles office.
"Increasingly, heroin
addicts are former
prescription drug abus-
ers," Pullen said. "They
become hooked on
painkillers and move over
to heroin because it is
available for far cheaper."
Heroin users in Los
Angeles can get a hit
for as little as $8 to $10,
officials say, so they can
get high several times
for what they'd pay for a
single, pricier pain pill.
The consequences have
been increasingly lethal.
In 2010 -the latest year
such data were available
- heroin overdoses killed
more than 3,000 people
across the U.S., a 45 per-
cent increase since 2006,
according to the DEA.
Hoffmarn's death at age
46 comes just a week after
Pennsylvania officials
announced that a batch
of heroin spiked with
fentanyl had killed at least
22 people in January.
Spiked heroin also
has killed at least 37
people in Maryland since
September, chief medical
examiner Dr. David
Fowler said.
Although initial autopsy
results on Hoffman
are pending, the scene

York apartment offered

a sad tableaux probably
familiar to emergency
responders.
Hoffman was found
dead with a needle in his
arm. In his apartment
were dozens of glassine
packets, some containing
powder, law enforcement
officials said. Some pack-
ets were stamped Ace of
Spades, marking them
as a brand of heroin.
Hoffman had battled
addiction for years.
"Glee" star Cory
Monteith, 31, also strug-
gled with drugs. He died
in a British Columbia
hotel room in July after
taking a combination of
heroin, alcohol, mor-
phine and codeine.
Heroin was a drug of
choice for celebrities and
inner-city addicts alike in
the 1970s, often with fatal
consequences. But its
popularity declined in the
1980s as the HIV/AIDS
crisis brought worries
of infection-carrying
needles. Crack cocaine
supplanted heroin as a
cheap, powerful option
for poorer users.
Now, experts say, her-
oin is back. Americans'
widespread abuse of
prescription drugs has
created a new market for
the opiate, which gives
users a powerful euphoria
similar to that of pain
pills.
"This last year, we've
seen a big uptick in
heroin use. It's become
rapidly very popular,"
said Theodore J.


Cicero, a professor of
neuropharmacology at
Washington University
in St. Louis, who has
been studying national
drug treatment rates for
seven years. "But now
it's becoming a rural and
suburban issue rather
than an urban issue."
Most states had an
increase in heroin pa-
tients from 2000 to 2010,
according to federal
statistics. The drug was
particularly accessible
in the Northeast, where
officials say New York
City serves as the transit
point for heroin com-
ing via road from the
Southwest, via air from
overseas, and via ship
from South America.
In New York, one
oxycodone pill on the
street costs about $30
and is good for just one
hit. (Oxycodone is an
ingredient derived from
opium; in pill form, it's
marketed as OxyContin.)
For about the same price,
buyers can get six glass-
ines of heroin, according
to Erin Mulvey, another
DEA spokeswoman in
New York.
"Six hits and six highs,
versus one high for oxy-
codone," Mulvey said.
The DEANs Payne
added, "Who would
have ever thought in
this country it would be
cheaper to buy heroin
than pills and obtain
them more easily?
That is the reality we're
facing."
Heroin has such a grip
on the Northeast that
Vermont's governor ded-
icated his state-of-the-
state address to fighting
the drug. The state saw
a 250 percent increase
in patients receiving
treatment for heroin use
since 2000.
"What started as an
OxyContin and pre-
scription drug addiction
problem in Vermont
has now grown into a
full-blown heroin crisis,"
Vermont Gov. Peter
Shumlin said in January.
The greatest hero-
in-treatment increase
came in the last year, he
said.

FDA anti-smoking
campaign

WASHINGTON (AP)
-The Food and Drug
Administration is using
ads depicting wrinkled
skin on youthful faces
and teenagers paying for
cigarettes with their teeth
in a campaign to show
the nation's young people
the costs associated with
smoking.
The federal agency said
Tuesday it is launching a
$115 million multimedia
education campaign
called "The Real Cost"
that's aimed at stopping
teenagers from smoking
and encouraging them to
quit.
Advertisements will run
in more than 200 markets
throughout the U.S. for at
least one year beginning
Feb. 11. The campaign
will include ads on TV
stations such as MTV and
print spots in magazines
like Teen Vogue. It also
will use social media.

Bern with his grand-

J.C. Penney has
$2 billion in liquidity
(Dallas Morning News)
- J.C. Penney Co. Inc.
said Tuesday it posted a
2 percent sales increase
in the fourth quarter, the
first time it had a quarter-
ly sales gain since 2011.
The Plano, Texas-based
retailer also said it ended
the year with more than
$2 billion in cash and
available credit.
In the key November-
December holiday period
sales increased 3.1 per-
cent from a year ago.
Earlier, Penney reported
a 10.1 percent sales
increase in November.
A year ago, during the
transformation under
former CEO Ron Johnson,
sales fell 32 percent in
the holiday quarter. So
Penney still has a long
way to dig out of its failed
attempt to remake the
department store.

ble "Puppy Bowl" airing.
It also beat everything
else on cable.
As expected, the

Prehistoric village is found in downtown Miami


MIAMI (Miami Herald)
- Archaeologists who
for months have been
uncovering mounting
evidence of an ancient
and extensive Native
American village in the
middle of downtown
Miami have concluded
it's likely one of the most
significant prehistoric
sites in the United States.
The archaeologists,
under the direction of
veteran South Florida
archaeologist Bob Carr,
have so far painstakingly
dug up eight large circles
comprised of uniformly
carved holes in the na-
tive limestone that they
believe to be foundation


holes for Tequesta Indian
dwellings dating as far
back as 2,000 years.
They have also dis-
covered linear, parallel
arrangements of hun-
dreds of such postholes
stretching across the site
that Carr hypothesizes
mark the foundation for
other structures, possibly
boardwalks connecting
the dwellings. The village
site borders a rocky out-
cropping that his team
has concluded was the
original natural shoreline
at the confluence of
Biscayne Bay and the
Miami River, a spot long
ago occluded by fill.
"What's unusual and


unique about the site
is that it's this huge
chunk of land where
a major part of this
ancient Tequesta village
site is preserved," Carr
said in an interview.
"It's one of the earliest
urban plans in eastern
North America. You can
actually see this extraor-
dinary configuration
of these buildings and
structures."
The finds, which
have not been widely
publicized, have placed
public officials and a big
downtown developer in
a major quandary. The
Tequesta village site
covers roughly half of a


long-vacant, two-acre
city block on the north
side of the river where
the developer, MDM
Development Group,
plans to build movie
theaters, restaurants and
a 34-story hotel. The
project would cover most
of the block, including
the full archaeological
site.
The city of Miami
granted MDM zoning
and development
approvals for the Met
Square project, though
not a final building
permit, before the full
scope of the archaeo-
logical finds was known
or understood. The


site has also yielded
thousands of Tequesta
artifacts, including bone
and shell tools, as well
as newly uncovered
remnants of industrial-
ist Henry Flagler's 1897
Royal Palm Hotel, which
gave rise to the city of
Miami.
State of Florida and
Miami-Dade County
historic-preservation
officials are pressing the
city to revisit the Met
Square plans to consider
possible alternatives that
would salvage a por-
tion of or even the full
archaeological site. That
could require a major,
costly redesign of the


Met Square project.
MDM, which already
has leases, agreements
and timetables for the
theaters, restaurants and
hotel, says it could be out
a substantial amount of
money if that happens.
The developer has
offered to carve out the
limestone holding one or
two of the larger circles
on the site and display
those in a planned public
plaza. In recent weeks,
MDM officials have
discussed doing more in
meetings with city and
county planners and
preservation officials, but
have made no promises
or commitments.

Justin Bieber

date in Fla. case
MIAMI (AP)- A

invalid license.
A Miami-Dade County

by Bieber and R&B singer
Khalil Amir Sharieff.
Sharieff was also arrested

Deputies: Man
stole $980 bottle
of cognac

FORT LAUDERDALE
(AP) Deputies found
the New Year's Eve cognac
thief they were looking
for in the Broward

a Crime Stoppers tip led
them to 47-year-old Hans
Kaiser, where he was
already facing charges for
a Jan. 15 grand theft in
Margate.

on Jan. 2 showing the
suspect as he forced open
the locked display case at
the ABC Wine and Spirits
store in Oakland Park on


Dec. 31. It showed him
taking a $980 bottle of
Hennessy Paradis Extra
Rare Cognac, hiding the
bottle under his clothing
and leaving the store.
Kaiser told deputies he
sold the bottle for $1,000
and used the money to
support his drug habit.
He remains in jail, fac-

theft charge.

Pensacola, family
at odds over
pot-bellied pig

PENSACOLA (AP)
- The Kirkmans of
Pensacola are facing a
deadline in deciding what
to do about their pet
pot-bellied pig named
Buttercup.
The pig is in violation
of the city of Pensacola's
ordinance banning "live-

They've given the family
until May to move, get rid
of Buttercup or convince
the city council to change
the ordinance.
David Kirkman, his
wife Laura and 9-year-old
Molly and 7-year-old
Butch say Buttercup isn't
livestock. They say she's
a pet they've raised since
she was 5 weeks old.

the family in December
after receiving an anon-

keeping a pig on their
property.
Council member Sherri

Technology

Cellphones and vigilant

There once were 20
fire towers in the Chipola
River District, which
stretches across seven
counties in Florida's

in the district may not
have even missed the
towers. But the state actu-
ally auctioned off several
of them five years ago.
In fact, the Forest

Bay County's only fire
tower. It belongs to the
sheriff's office. That tower
has a camera and radio
transmission equipment
in it.
Goddin says lookouts in
the towers once spotted
fires and communicated
with lookouts in other
towers to determine a
fire's size.
"These are ... a dying
piece of equipment for
us," Goddin said.
But cellphones, air-
planes and technology
haven't totally replaced
the towers.


Jacob Beam, a forest
ranger from Youngstown,
said he still goes to the
Bay County tower when
he hears of a fire.
"Most of the time we
just look and get a general
direction," he said.
He still talks to a
lookout in neighboring
Calhoun County. Chris


Crocker has worked as a
lookout there for about 20
years, eight hours a day.
"I guess you could say
I'm constantly scanning,"
she said.
Sometimes she may
just see one fire a month,
but more during months,
like November, when the
leaves are falling.

by environmental groups
seeking to restrict devel-
opment in the name of
species protection.
Led by Rep. Cynthia
Lummis of Wyoming and
Rep. Doc Hastings of
Washington state, who
chairs the House Natural
Resources Committee,
the Republicans want to
amend the law to limit
litigation from wildlife
advocates that has re-
sulted in protections for
some species. And they
want to give states more
authority over imperiled
species that fall within
their borders.
Also among the
recommendations from
the group are increased
scientific transparency,
more accurate economic
impact studies and
safeguards for private
landowners.
"The biggest problem
is that the Endangered
Species Act is not
recovering species," said
Hastings. "The way the
act was written, there is
more of an effort to list
(species as endangered
or threatened) than to
delist."

Noah Greenwald, a

to recovery.
The political hurdles
for an overhaul of the
law are considerable.
The Endangered Species
Act enjoys fervent
support among many
environmentalists,
whose Democratic allies
on Capitol Hill have
thwarted past proposals
for change.
Oregon Rep. Peter
DeFazio, the ranking
Democrat on the
Natural Resources
Committee, sug-
gested Tuesday that
Republicans appeared
intent on gutting the
law. He predicted the


would cut food stamps
by $800 million a year, or
around 1 percent.
House Republicans
had hoped to reduce
the bill's costs even
further, pointing to a
booming agriculture
sector in recent years
and arguing that the
now $80 billion-a-year
food stamp program has
spiraled out of control.
The House passed a
bill in September that
would have made a cut
to food stamps that was
five times more than the
eventual cut.
Those partisan dis-
agreements stalled the

The Timely Justice Act of

It also enacts reporting re-

and a still-powerful bipar-
tisan coalition of farm-
state lawmakers pushed
to get the bill done.
The final compromise
bill would get rid of
controversial subsidies
known as direct pay-
ments, which are paid
to farmers whether
they farm or not. But
most of that program's
$4.5 billion annual cost
was redirected into new,
more politically defensi-
ble subsidies that would
kick in when a farmer
has losses.
To gather votes for the
bill, Senate Agriculture
Chairwoman Debbie
Stabenow, D-Mich., and
her House counterpart,
Rep. Frank Lucas,

issue a ruling in the case.
"Historically with the
death penalty in Florida
there's been many indi-
viduals who have been
exonerated, like Juan
Melendez 18 years after
he was convicted and sen-
tenced to death and it took
three rounds of post-con-
viction litigation for that
to happen," McClain said.
"The Timely Justice Act
tries to cut off the ability
to file successive motions
and really compact them.
That just sort of creates
this problem."
Twenty-four men have
been exonerated from


interests, Republicans
and others. They argue
actions taken to shield
at-risk species such as
the northern spotted
owl have severely ham-
pered logging and other
economic development.
Those complaints
grew louder in recent
months after federal
wildlife officials agreed
to consider protec-
tions for more than
250 additional species

major boost for crop
insurance popular in
the Midwest, higher
subsidies for Southern
rice and peanut farmers
and land payments for
Western states. The
bill also sets policy for
hundreds of smaller
programs, subsidies,
loans and grants from
research on wool to
loans for honey produc-
ers to protections for the
catfish industry. The bill
would provide assis-
tance for rural Internet

organic agriculture.

succeed.

Dale Goble, an expert
on the act who works as

Goble added that the

is a shortage of federal
money to help pay for

The regional incen-

out the bill helped it
pass easily in the House
last week, 251-166.
House leaders who had
objected to the legisla-
tion since 2011 softened
their disapproval as they
sought to put the long-
stalled bill behind them.
Leaders in both parties

Long winter brings


salt shortage,


steeper prices


CHICAGO (AP) -As
piles of snow grow taller
during this seemingly
endless winter, the
mounds of salt for
spreading on the na-
tion's icy, slushy roads
are shrinking, forcing
communities to ration
supplies or try exotic new
ice-melting substances.
Cities have already
gone through most of
their salt well ahead of
the time they traditional-
ly really need it when
the coldest part of winter
gives way to tempera-
tures just warm enough
to turn snow into freezing
rain and sleet and roads
into ribbons of ice.
"If we don't get the salt,
at some point people are
going to be sliding all
over the place like what
you saw in Atlanta," said
Julius Hansen, public
works director in the
Chicago suburb of Glen
Ellyn, citing last week's
television images of
thousands of motorists
getting stranded on
ice-covered roads in the
South.
So far this year, Glen
Ellyn's snow-removal
crews have responded to


31 storms.
"In an average winter,
we have 20," Hansen
said.
A community the size
of Glen Ellyn, population
27,000, might use 50 to
100 tons per storm. A
bigger community such
as Waukesha, Wis., which
has about 70,000 resi-
dents, could use 300 tons
or more. The same storm
in Chicago would call for
more than 13,000 tons.
Demand is so high
that salt gets more
expensive every day.
Communities are trying
to decide what do to.
They could buy a little
more salt now, when
it costs twice or three
times more than earlier
in the season, and hope
it doesn't snow too
much more. Or they
could wait until it does
snow more and risk pay-
ing even higher prices.
In some areas, there
has been so much snow
that cities have had to
find creative ways to
stretch their supplies:
spreading salt only on
intersections and major
roads and mixing it with
sand.


FRANKFURT, Germany
(AP) In Europe, the
zombie hunt is on.
Not for undead hu-
mans, that is, but zombie
banks the walking
dead among lenders,
too financially troubled
to loan money to an
economy that desper-
ately needs investment,
growth and jobs.
The European
Central Bank, the lead
crisis-fighter for the 18
countries that use the
euro, is embarking on an
extensive search through
the books of the biggest
banks. It's an arcane
exercise but one
whose results will impact
people's jobs, businesses
and lives. The idea is
to restore the system's
ability to lend by weeding
out lame banks.
Previous efforts in
2009, 2010 and 2011 -by
other EU offices with
fewer powers didn't
do the job. Some banks
passed simulated "stress
tests" on paper but
needed bailouts soon
afterward. So the ECB is
putting its reputation on
the line.
Together with na-
tional regulators and
the European Banking
Authority, the ECB will
first go through thou-
sands of files from 128 of
Europe's largest banks to
hunt for hidden, soured
loans and investments.
That will be followed by
stress tests that simulate
how a bank would fare in
a recession or crisis.
Once the verdict is
delivered in October,
national bank regulators
will be asked to push
problem banks to raise
capital by selling new
shares to investors,
restricting dividends -
or even by being restruc-
tured or bailed out. That
should help the economy
in the long run.
But it's tricky. Forcing
banks to fix their prob-
lems could temporarily
destabilize financial
markets and cost inves-
tors and governments
more money.
"The object is, no
more doubts about
European banks," said
ECB Vice President Vitor
Constancio, as he laid
out the technical details
of the exercise at a news


conference Monday with
Daniele Nouy, chair of
the ECB's supervisory
board.

BEIRUT (AP) -Men
pull a girl from the rubble
and haul her onto a dirty
sheet of plastic, while
another child, coated in
white dust save for a red
streak of blood from his
nose, lies with his crushed
leg dangling off a gurney
- the grisly aftermath
from the dropping of a
crude "barrel bomb" by
Syrian forces on the city of
Aleppo.
The bombing one of
at least seven such attacks
in Aleppo on Tuesday
- struck a mosque that
was being used as a
school, killing at least 11
people, activists said. A
video supplied by activists
contained scenes of the
carnage.
It was the latest exam-
ple of the heightened
use of barrel bombs,
devices packed with fuel,
explosives and scrap
metal that are hurled
from helicopters, often
indiscriminately.
Since Thursday, around
80 people have been
killed by barrel bombs
used by Syrian President
Bashar Assad's forces
to try to dislodge rebels
from Aleppo, according


to figures provided by
the Britain-based Syrian
Observatory for Human
Rights, which relies on a
network of activists on the
ground.
The video uploaded
from the rebel-held
Masaken Hanano district
showed the aftermath of
the explosion at or near
the Uthman Bin Affan
mosque, where adults
were teaching children
the Quran, said activist
Hassoun Abu Faisal of the
Aleppo Media Center.
The video, excerpts of
which are at http://apne.
ws/ 1 c0t9yt, was consistent
with what reporting by
The Associated Press
found.
A cameraman films
from inside a vehicle as
it speeds toward a place
where dust is drifting
into a clear blue sky
The camera swivels to
men and boys running
around a building that has
been torn in half by an
explosion.
"Are there martyrs?" the
narrator asks. His camera
focuses on a lump of red
flesh in a vehicle.
It is the beginning of
a grim litany of death,


I LserGumTheap


as seen from the jerking
camera.
A child, his legs missing,
lies on the ground, partial-
ly covered by a blanket.
'Are there anybody's
children here?" cries one
man.
"Bashar, you lowlife!"
cries another, referring to
the Syrian ruler, raising
his hands angrily to the
sky. Another man shakes
a blackened body inside a
vehicle.
A man carries a lifeless
boy, lifting him partly by
his clothes, and leaves him
on the sidewalk near two
other mangled corpses. An
older man with a bloodied
face stumbles toward the
child, weeping, "Oh, God,
your grace, oh, God."
The cameraman also
captures scenes of the boy
with the crushed leg and
the girl pulled from the
ruins.
The Observatory said
at least five of the dead in
Masaken Hanano were
children.


The use of barrel bombs
across Syria has been
widely condemned by
human rights groups
because of the weapons'
indiscriminate nature.
They have been a key part
of a government strategy
to wrest back parts of
Aleppo seized by rebels in
mid-2012.
Far from the battle-
grounds in Syria, Assad's
chief ally, Russia, ex-
pressed confidence that
the government would
return to the U.N.-hosted
peace talks in Geneva that
began in January after
three years of war.
"We have no doubts
that the government
representatives will take
place in a second round
of talks between the
Syrian sides in Geneva,"
Mikhail Bogdanov,
Russian deputy foreign
minister and Moscow's
special envoy to the
Middle East, said in com-
ments carried on Russian
news agencies.

Bargain-hunting drives gains for stocks


NEWYORK (AP) -
Investors went hunting
for bargains a day after
U.S. stocks racked up the
biggest losses in more than
seven months.
The buying helped lift
major stock indexes out of
the red on Tuesday. Prices
of U.S. government bonds
fell.
The mini-rebound
seemed fragile at times,
with the market giving up
some of its earlier gains by
late afternoon.
Markets were coming
off a 326-point drop in
the Dow Jones industrial
average on Monday, and
the blue-chip index's worst
January performance in


five years prompted by
disappointing news about
U.S. manufacturing.
"It was the biggest hole
we've seen for quite a bit,
so it's not surprising to see
a green day after a couple
days of red," said Andres
Garcia-Amaya, a global
market strategist with J.P
Morgan Funds.
Portfolio managers
seized on the aftermath of
Monday's sell-off to buy,
even as many stock watch-
ers acknowledged that the
market could still be in for
a correction, or a drop of at
least 10 percent.
"The one thing you
never know is when the
bottom is going to hit in


a downturn," said Quincy
Krosby, a market strategist
with Prudential Financial.
"So what you might do is
at least begin the process
of building your position."
Among the biggest
gainers on the day were
fashion retailer Michael
Kors Holdings, water
technology provider Xylem
and the owner of Pizza
Hut, KFC and Taco Bell
restaurant chains.
Trading was relatively
light for much of the
day, picking up by late
afternoon. But most of the
active stocks were in the
green.
All told, the Dow
rose 72.44 points, or


0.5 percent, to close at
15,445.24 Tuesday The
Standard & Poor's 500 in-
dex climbed 13.31 points,
or 0.8 percent, to 1,755.20.
The Nasdaq composite
gained 34.56 points, or
0.9 percent, to 4,031.52.
Even with Tuesday's
gains, the Dow is down
6.8 percent this year, and
the S&P 500 index is off
5 percent.
Investors are trying
to gauge the strength
of the U.S. economic
recovery. They got some
positive news on Tuesday,
when the Commerce
Department reported that
orders to U.S. factories fell
1.5 percent in December.


Advantages to using cloud-based programs


his week's column
was due, and all
I had handy was
my tablet and a full-size
keyboard, an Internet
connection, a cool bever-
age and some shade.
Why the full-size
keyboard? The tablet also
has a keyboard and an
on-screen keyboard, but
I have fat fingers. The
keys on the tablet are
small enough that I can
type four letters with one
push, which makes for
interesting reading.
The other piece of the
puzzle is Google Drive,
which is a cloud-based
storage facility, and
Google Docs. Since the
tablet was connected
to the Internet, it
was able to reach my
Google Drive, and, in
there, I keep some of
my columns. But, more
important, it keeps the
column template I use
each week, so I don't
have to format every
new column. I can reach
Google Drive even if I'm
not at my office PC. The
other advantage is that


when I open the column
template from Google
Drive, it opens in Google
Docs, which is part of a
Web-based full produc-
tivity suite consisting
of a word processor,
spreadsheets and a
presentation program
similar to PowerPoint.
Put another way,
instead of purchasing a
full office suite, we can
use the one provided
from Google simply by
signing up for a Gmail
account. This gives us
access to all the Google
products, and there are
many more than just the
office suite. The advan-
tage to using a Web- or
cloud-based program
and cloud-based storage
is that nothing we do to


our binary buddy not
updates, new software,
crashes, blue screens
or a heave to into the
canal can affect our
documents or our ability
to log into Google and
find our project and
start modifying it to our
liking.
Anyone who has
suffered a hard-drive
failure can appreciate
the protection this
offers against a loss of
valuable or time-critical
documents. There is
also storage available for
pictures.
Remember, unlike
us who do a backup
when we remember to,
which always seems to
be after a catastrophic
failure, Google pays
people to make sure
our stuff is backed
up and the backup is
backed up.
That is their job. To
view videos explaining
how Google Drive and
Google Docs work, surf
over to www.youtube.
com/user/docs.
Microsoft offers a


similar product called
Skydrive (www.skydrive.
com). Zoho (www.zoho.
com) and Thinkfree
(www.thinkfree.com)
also offer Web-based
office products. Basic
packages suitable for
single users are free
with limited storage. Of
course, more storage
and features can be had
for nominal prices.
For many folks tran-
sitioning away from
desktops and laptops
to tablets and phones,
these Web-based tools
are just the ticket. If
there is one drawback,
these suites are usable
only if we have a con-
nection to the Internet,
be it at home, the library
or any business that
offers Wi-Fi.
Start an office in the
cloud, and do it for free.

ear Dave: I've
heard you say
many times you
shouldn't buy a brand-
new car unless you have
a net worth of $1 million.
What's so special about
a million dollars? An-
gela
Dear Angela: In all
honesty, there's nothing
particularly special about
a million dollars. A brand-
new car will lose about
60 percent of its value in
the first four years. So,
if you're going to turn a
$30,000 investment into
$12,000, you've got to have
a bunch of money. You've
got to be in pretty great
financial shape in order to
absorb the blow.
If your entire net worth
is $100,000, and you
put $30,000 of it into
a vehicle that will lose
60 percent of its value,
you're just being finan-
cially and mathematically
stupid. Your income is
your largest and most
powerful wealth-building
tool. If you're buying
things that go the wrong
way in terms of value,
you're not gaining wealth;
you're losing wealth.
There's really nothing
special about $1 million. I
could have said $2 million
or $900,000, but $1 million
is easy to remember. Plus,
it's nothing to sneeze at
in terms of an individual's
net worth. When you
lose a lot, and it's a small
percentage of a lot, you
don't have to worry so
much. But when you lose
a lot and you didn't have
much to begin with, that's
a recipe for financial disas-
ter! Dave


Do fewer dumb
things

Dear Dave: My parents
co-signed on government


loans so I could go
to college. Would my
forbearance or non-pay-
ment affect their credit if
I don't pay? Tiffany
Dear Tiffany: Yes, it
would. I'm not trying to
lay a guilt trip on you,
kiddo, but you'll be
trashing your mom and
dad's credit if you don't
pay the bills on time. If
they co-signed for you,
they'll start getting phone
calls, too, if you don't do
the right thing and pay
back these loans.
The truth is, your mom
and dad shouldn't have
co-signed for you in the
first place. There's only
one reason lenders want
a co-signer, and that's
because they're afraid
the person taking out the
loan won't be able to pay
back what's owed.
My goal here isn't to
beat you up, Tiffany. It's
to give you information
that you and your
parents need in
order to make different,
smarter decisions in the
future. We all do dumb
things sometimes. In the
past, I did some really
dumb things with very
large numbers attached.
The goal is to grow, learn,
and try to use what we
learn in order to do
fewer dumb things in the
future. Dave

Afghan candidates
start 1st debate
KABUL, Afghanistan
(AP) Tackling topics
ranging from the Taliban
to the future of foreign
troops in Afghanistan,
candidates battling to
replace President Hamid
Karzai faced off Tuesday
in the first televised de-
bate of a crucial election
campaign.
The presidential race is
playing out in the run-up
to the planned with-
drawal of NATO combat
troops, and the April 5
vote will be a crucial test
of whether the country
can ensure a stable
transition after years of
war and while facing a
Taliban insurgency that
has vowed it will attempt
to disrupt the poll.

6 killed, 4 injured
in police raid on
Rio slum
RIO DE JANEIRO (dpa)
- At least six people were
killed and a further four
injured Tuesday during
a police raid on a Rio de
Janeiro "favela," or slum,
local authorities said.
The four-hour raid
in Morro do Juramento
resulted in a shootout in
which six people were
killed and four others
- including two police
officers were injured.
The authorities sub-
sequently seized drugs,
grenades, guns and
several AK-47 rifles.
Police officers were
seeking to arrest mem-
bers of a drug gang
suspected of attacking a
police station Sunday and
killing one police officer.
Police said the attack
had been ordered by
a gang known as Red
Command, which
controls the drug trade in
parts of Rio de Janeiro.

8 dead in Tunisian
shootout with
militants
TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) -
Tunisia's National Guard
stormed a suspected mil-
itant hideout in a seaside
suburb of Tunis after a
daylong standoff Tuesday.
Seven radicals were killed,
including a suspect in a
political assassination last
year, a minister said.


One National Guard
member also died in
the clash, which comes
almost a year after the
assassination of left-wing
politician Chokri Belaid
by Islamist extremists set
off a political crisis in this
North African nation.
Hundreds of masked
anti-terror units flooded
the Tunis neighborhood
of Raoued during the
standoff, filling its streets
with armored vehicles.
Snipers were perched on
rooftops.

Pakistan talks
with Taliban team
delayed
ISLAMABAD (AP)- A
suicide bomber killed nine
people in northwestern
Pakistan Tuesday just
hours after peace talks
between government
negotiators and a team
representing the Pakistani
Taliban were delayed,
officials said.
There was no immediate
claim of responsibility
for the attack on a hotel
frequented by members of
the Shiite Muslim minority
sect. Suspicion is likely
to fall on Sunni Islamic
militants who view Shiites
as heretics, although the
Pakistani Taliban denied
any responsibility for the
bombing.
Pakistani Prime Minister
Nawaz Sharif has been
pushing for negotiations
over military operations
to end militant violence in
the Islamic country, where
more than 40,000 people
in recent years have been
killed in acts of terrorism.
London Tube
strike looms
LONDON (Bloomberg)
- London Underground
union leaders failed to
secure a last-ditch meeting
with Boris Johnson, the
city's mayor, after calling
a two-day strike over job
cuts and closures that
threatens to cripple travel
starting tonight. Bob Crow,
general secretary of the
Rail, Maritime & Transport
union, and Manuel Cortes,
leader of the Transport
Salaried Staffs' Association,
went to City Hall Tuesday
morning to seek face-to-
face negotiations but were
declined a meeting with the
mayor, RMT spokesman
Geoff Martin said by email.


Sea survivor's family thought he died


GARITA PALMER,
El Salvador (AP)- A
Salvadoran fisherman's
account of his survival af-
ter more than 13 months
and about 6,500 miles in
an open boat has proved
a double miracle for his
mother and father, who
lost touch with him eight
years ago and thought he
was dead.
Comments by Jose
Salvador Alvarenga's
joyful, sometimes tearful
parents about their son
may help explain how
he survived, but they did
little to dispel continued
doubts about his tale.
His father, Jose Ricardo
Orellana, 65, who owns
a store and flour mill in
the seaside Salvadoran
town of Garita Palmera,
described a strong, stocky
young man who went to
sea at age 14. "The sea
was his thing," Orellana
said.
His mother, Maria Julia
Alvarenga, 59, broke into
tears after recounting
a phone call with her
son from the Marshall
Islands. He told her he
was well, staying at a
hotel and getting food
and medicine but told
his mother he didn't know
where he was.
"We hadn't heard from
him for eight years, we
thought he was dead
already," said Alvarenga.
"This is a miracle, glory to
God."
Alvarenga's 14-year-old
daughter, Fatima, said
she didn't remember ever
seeing her father, who left
El Salvador when she was
just over a year old.
"I'm so very happy to
know he's alive," said
Fatima. "He's alive and
I'm going to see him."
The parents said he was
known in his hometown as
"Cirilo," a nickname that
coincides with the first
name of a man registered
as missing with civil
defense officials in the
southern Mexico state of
Chiapas. The civil defense
office said a small fishing
boat carrying two men,
named Cirilo Vargas
and Ezequiel Cordoba,
disappeared during
bad weather on Nov. 17,
2012, and that no trace
of them or the craft was
found despite an intense
two-week search.

In this Monday photo provided by the Marshall Islands Foreign Affairs Department, a man iden-
tifying himself as 37-year-old Jose Salvador Alvarenga sits on a couch in Majuro in the Marshall
Islands, after he was rescued from being washed ashore on the tiny atoll of Ebon in the Pacific Ocean.


Alvarenga said his
fellow fisherman, who he
identified only with the
first name of Ezequiel,
died after about a month
at sea and he tossed
his body overboard.
Alvarenga said he sur-
vived on raw fish, birds,
bird blood and turtles
before washing ashore
on the remote Marshall
Islands atoll of Ebon,
6,500 miles across the
Pacific Ocean from the
fishing hamlet of Costa
Azul, Mexico, where he
set out.
There was no imme-
diate explanation of the
discrepancy in dates
given by Alvarenga and
Mexican authorities or
the survivor's different
names. Alvarenga said he
set sail on Dec. 21, 2012,
but fisherman in the
Chiapas hamlet of Costa
Azul said an overweight
Central American man
known as "La Chancha,"
or "the pig," had been lost
since November 2012.
Alvarenga may have used


multiple nicknames, and
seems fuzzy about details
of his voyage.
Jose Manuel Aragon,
spokesman for the
Chiapas state civil
defense office, said two
weeks of searches were
fruitless and reflected the
widespread incredulity at
Alvarenga's tale.
"It was probably some-
thing that was planned
beforehand, something
we had no knowledge
of," Aragon said. "Our
only duty was to carry
out search and rescue
operations."
Villermino Rodriguez, a
young fishing boat owner
in Costa Azul known
as "Willie," described
Alvarenga as a heavy set,
quiet man. Alvarenga has
said he worked for Willie.
Rodriguez said the
two men set out despite
warnings that day about
heavy rains and high
winds. He too wonders
about the survival story.
"You can imagine a
lot of things, but that is


something he should
explain," said Rodriguez.
"There are things that
don't match up. I knew
him, but I have a lot of
doubts."
Central America is a
major transshipment
route for U.S.-bound
drugs, but there is no
evidence traffickers
would use such a small
boat to try to make such a
long journey.
Alvarenga did not
appear badly sunburned,
despite his account of
spending such a long
time adrift.
"It's hard for me to
imagine someone sur-
viving 13 months at sea,"
said U.S. Ambassador
Tom Armbruster in
Majuro, capital of the
Marshall Islands, after
speaking with Alvarenga.
"But it's also hard to
imagine how someone
might arrive on Ebon out
of the blue. Certainly this
guy has had an ordeal,
and has been at sea for
some time."

Study: Vodka creates high death risk in Russian men


LONDON (AP)-
Russian men who down
large amounts of vodka
- and too many do -
have an "extraordinari-
ly" high risk of an early
death, a new study says.
Researchers tracked
about 151,000 adult
men in the Russian
cities of Barnaul, Byisk
and Tomsk from 1999 to
2010. They interviewed
them about their drink-
ing habits and, when
about 8,000 later died,
followed up to monitor
their causes of death.
The risk of dying
before age 55 for those
who said they drank
three or more half-liter
bottles of vodka a week


was a shocking 35
percent.
Overall, a quarter of
Russian men die before
reaching 55, compared
with 7 percent of men
in the United Kingdom
and about 10 percent in
the United States. The
life expectancy for men
in Russia is 64 years -
placing it among the
lowest 50 countries
in the world in that
category.
It's not clear how
many Russian men
drink three bottles
or more a week.
Lead researcher Sir
Richard Peto of Oxford
University said the aver-
age Russian adult drinks


20 liters of vodka per
year while the average
Briton drinks about
three liters of spirits.
"Russians clearly
drink a lot, but it's this
pattern of getting really
smashed on vodka and
then continuing to
drink that is danger-
ous," Peto said.
"The rate of men
dying prematurely in
Russia is totally out
of line with the rest
of Europe," he said.
"There's also a heavy
drinking culture in
Finland and Poland but
they still have nothing
like Russia's risk of
death."
Alcohol has long been


a top killer in Russia
and vodka is often
the drink of choice,
available cheaply and
often homemade in
small villages. Previous
studies have estimated
that more than 40 per-
cent of working-age
men in Russia die
because they drink
too much, including
using alcohol that is not
meant to be consumed
like that in colognes and
antiseptics.
Drinking is so en-
grained in Russian cul-
ture there's a word that
describes a drinking
binge that lasts several
days: "zapoi."
Peto said there was


some evidence of a
similar effect in Russian
women who also drank
heavily but there was
not enough data to draw
a broad conclusion.
The study was paid
for by the U.K. Medical
Research Council and
others. It was published
online Thursday in the
journal Lancet.
Other experts said the
Russian preference for
hard liquor was particu-
larly dangerous.
"If you're drinking
vodka, you get a
lot more ethanol in
that than if you were
drinking something
like lager," said David
Leon, a professor of


epidemiology at the
London School of
Hygiene and Tropical
Medicine, who has also
studied the impact of
alcohol in Russia but
was not part of the
Lancet study.
He said changing
drinking patterns in
Russia to combat the
problem was possible
but that it would take
significant cultural
adjustments.
"It's not considered
out-of-order to drink
until you can't function
in Russia," Leon said.
"It just seems to be part
of being a guy in Russia
that you are expected to
drink heavily."

Mystery rings in the


Baltic Sea explained


(LA Times) Some
mysterious underwater
circles spotted in the Baltic
Sea have been explained,
and poison is to blame. But
let's back up and start from
the beginning.
In 2008, a tourist to the
island of Mon in Denmark
noticed strange patterns in
the shallow waters beneath
the island's striking white
chalk cliffs. The patterns
looked like circles, and they
were rather large. Some
of them were as much as
50 feet in diameter.
Speculations were far
ranging: Were the circles
remnants of bomb craters
fromWorldWar II?Were
aliens involved?
Biologists took a closer
look and revealed that the
strange shapes were created
by eelgrass that appeared to
be growing in rings. Thick,
lush eelgrass grows around
the perimeter of the circle,
but in the center there is
either struggling eelgrass, or


none at all.
But eelgrass usually
grows in a meadow forma-
tion, so why in this case was
it growing in ring shapes?
According to biologists
Marianne Holmer from
University of Southern
Denmark and Jens Borum
from the University of
Copenhagen, the rings
are created because of a
buildup of sulfide in the
mud around the grass.
The sulfide, which is toxic
to eelgrass, kills the grass
in the center of the rings,
but not the grass along the
perimeter.
Most of the mud in this
area of the Baltic Sea is
quickly washed away, but
the strands of eelgrass trap
the mud in their midst.
"The mud seemed
to exist only inside the
circle, so only here the
plants are attacked by
poison," said Holmer
and Borum in a
statement.

Officially, national

to start signing a letter of

their choice.
In reality, national
signing day is not a

stops.
"It's the end of the fiscal

"Truthfully, the next year

ARCADIA As the final whistle

Not because the 2-1 loss to Bishop

but because each player knew just
how close they had come.
There wasn't much the Bulldogs
did wrong in the Region 2A-8

Yankees' new closer



not overthinking role


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TAMPA-New York
Yankees reliever David
Robertson is not overana-
lyzing his role as Mariano
Rivera's replacement.
Robertson is moving
from an eighth-inning set-
up man to closer following
Rivera's retirement.
"It's the same deal,"
Robertson said Tuesday
after a pre-spring training
workout at the Yankees'
minor league complex.
"Throwing the eighth
or ninth inning, you've
still got to get three outs.
You've got to be effective.
You can't give up a lead.
I'm not going to try to
overthink the whole
situation."
Rivera has said that
Robertson is the right man
for the role. The former
teammates spent time
together last month at the
New York baseball writers'
dinner.
"First thing he said is,
'You scared?'" Robertson
recalled. "I'm like, 'No.' It's
typical Mo. He's all over
my case already. I haven't
even thrown a pitch yet,
and he's on me. He knows
I can do it, and I think
I know I can do it. It's
just a matter of actually
stepping out there and
doing it."
Given the chance to
fill in as closer when
Rivera injured a knee in
2012, Robertson strained
muscle in his left ribcage.
Rafael Soriano took over
as closer for the rest of the
season. Robertson went
5-1 with a 2.04 ERA in 70
games last year, striking
out 77 in 66 1-3 innings.
"He's been in some huge
situations here," Yankees
pitching coach Larry
Rothschild said. "He's
been around Mo. He's in
a good position to know
what he has to do. He's

done everything that you
could ask him to do to this
point to become a closer.
Now it's just a matter of
executing the pitches.
Unless he gets over-
whelmed by the situation,
I don't anticipate major
problems."

Freeman, Heyward
agree to contracts: The Atlanta
Braves agreed to eight-year contract
with first baseman Freddie Freeman
worth about $125 million. The Braves
and outfielder Jason Heyward also
agreed to a $13.3 million, two-year
contract. Both 24-year-old filed for
salary arbitration last month.


Freeman was an All-Star last year
when he hit .319 with 23 homers and
109 RBIs, finishing fifth in NL MVP
voting. He has topped 20 home runs in
three consecutive seasons.
Heyward, the Braves'projected
leadoff hitter, is coming offan
injury-filled season.
"Physically, I feel great, being 24
years old and being blessed with some
genetics to go along with that;he said.
"I'm growing up still in this game and
I'm looking forward to what my body is
going to allow me to do going forward'."

Around the majors: Jeff
Baker, who batted .279 with 11 home
runs and 21 RBIs in 74 games for the
Texas Rangers last season, agreed to
a $3.7 million, two-year contract with
the Miami Marlins. ...
Sam Fuld agreed to a minor league
contract with the Oakland Athletics
that includes an invitation to big league
spring training ...
Cleveland pitcher Nick Hagadone
will receive an additional 94 days of
major league service time and the
Indians will have the right to option
him to the minor leagues this season
under a grievance settlement between
MLB and the players'association.

Khutor Extreme Park in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia.



White jams wrist,



adds to injury list


By EDDIE PELLS
ASSOCIATED PRESS
KRASNAYA POLYANA,
Russia Shaun White
saw the glassy sheen of
the super-steep takeoff
ramp and knew some-
thing bad was coming.
He fell and jammed
his left wrist adding
another nagging injury to
his long list of bumps and
bruises while also entering
his name on the growing
list of athletes falling
victim to a treacherous
Olympic slopestyle course.
"A little intimidating,"
he called the course after
Tuesday's training. "It's
been a challenge."
Through two days
of practice runs in the
Russian mountains above
Sochi, the course at Rosa
Khutor Extreme Park has
already taken out one
of the favorites, Torstein
Horgmo of Norway, who
broke a collarbone while
riding through the rails
Monday.
On Tuesday, shortly
after White's minor injury,
Marika Enne of Finland
fell hard and hit her head
at the end of her run. She
was taken off the course
on a stretcher with a
concussion.
Slopestyle qualifying
begins Thursday the
day before the opening
ceremony with White
trying to win the first


OLYMPIC GLANCE:
SNOWBOARDING
THE BASICS
Five events: Halfpipe, snow-
boardcross, parallel giant slalom
and two new ones slopestyle
and parallel slalom. Slopestyle
is a ride down a hill with steeply
angled jumps, rails and little
bumps called "jibs." Parallel
slalom is racing a short-
ened version of parallel giant
slalom event that's been on the
program since snowboarding
was introduced in 1998.
STARS TO WATCH
Shaun White is going for his
third consecutive halfpipe gold
and trying to win in slopestyle,
as well. Another rider to watch
will be Torah Bright of Australia,
the defending Olympic halfpipe
champion who will compete
in halfpipe, slopestyle and
snowboardcross.
DID YOU KNOW?
Mark McMorris of Canada is
considered White's top chal-
lenger in slopestyle. He broke
a rib competing in the Winter
X Games. He said he's sore but
medically clear to compete.

of two gold medals at
this year's Olympics. His
attempt at a third straight
title on the halfpipe is set
for next Tuesday.
As Tuesday's training
session was winding
down, a large cluster of
snowboarders and their
coaches met at the base


for a discussion of what
changes need to be made
before Thursday.
"When we get to a
course, nothing's perfect,"
American snowboarder
Chas Guldemond said.
"It's roughed in. We test
the course. We come in
and tweak it. We have
rider meetings. We give
builders feedback and
make tweaks to the course
to make it safer and more
usable for the riders."
No matter what fixes
they make, there's no tak-
ing the danger completely
out of slopestyle.
Horgmo's injury came
on a rail at the top of the
course, a feature that has
injury potential no matter
how the course is built.
Canada's Mark
McMorris, one of the
favorites in this event,
knows all about that.
He is 10 days removed
from breaking a rib after
slamming into a rail on
his final run at the Winter
X Games. He said he's
medically clear but sore.
"I don't think it's
dangerous," McMorris
said. "Snowboarding's
dangerous. But crossing
the street is dangerous,
too."
White claimed his wrist
injury shouldn't slow him
down over the upcoming
six-day span that will help
determine his legacy.


* NFL NOTEBOOK


Bully scandal enters



final stage: the report


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MIAMI -The NFL's
report in the Miami
Dolphins harassment case
is expected to be released
soon, shedding further
light on the much-scruti-
nized, troubled relation-
ship between offensive
linemen Jonathan Martin
and Richie Incognito.
The report will likely
address whether the
Dolphins organization
was at fault for the
locker-room culture that
led Martin to leave the
team last October. He later
said he was harassed daily
by teammates, including
Incognito, and alleged
that their racial, aggressive
and sexually charged
comments played a role in


his departure.
Incognito's Dolphins
suspension was lifted
Tuesday, but Miami
officials say that was an
administrative move
agreed to by all parties
some time ago, and had
nothing to do with any
new developments in the
league investigation.
Last week, Dolphins
owner Stephen Ross said
he has an idea of what will
be in the league's report,
and indicated he doesn't
expect any new revela-
tions. He said he's proud
of the way the people
running the franchise
responded to the scandal.
The NFL report will
come from New York
attorney Ted Wells three
months after he was


retained by the NFL to
investigate the case, which
inspired a national debate
about hazing and work-
place bullying.
Wells will determine the
role of coach Joe Philbin,
his staff and Miami
management in the case.
One issue is whether
anyone on the coaching
staff ordered Incognito to
toughen up Martin.

Around the league: The
Tennessee Titans are looking for a new
trainer after parting with Brad Brown
after more than two decades....
New Washington Redskins coach
Jay Gruden filled the final spots on his
staff, hiring Bradford Banta as assistant
special teams coach, Shane Day as
assistant offensive line and offensive
quality control coach, and Jake Peetz as
offensive quality control coach.


DENVER- Terrance Knighton
summed it up for many Broncos
fans when he sat stone-faced after
Seattle's 43-8 drubbing of Denver
in Super Bowl XLVIII and said,"It
doesn't feel real. It almost feels like
a nightmare.' A quick look at the
Broncos' best and worst from this
season and what's next:
BEST GAME
AFC Championship. The Broncos
dominated the New England Patriots


26-16 in what turned out to be their season with a roster that could lose


crowning achievement.
WORST GAME
Super Bowl. Peyton Manning
never played as poorly in two years
with the Broncos as he did Sunday
after Denver fell behind with a safety
12 seconds into the game and never
recovered.
WHAT'S NEXT
Figuring out how to parlay this
defeat into a championship next


Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie,
Knowshon Moreno and Eric Decker
to free agency and will need a
makeover on defense even ifVon
Miller, Chris Harris Jr., Rahim Moore,
DerekWolfe and Kevin Vickerson,
starters who were on IR by season's
end, come back and regain their
form. They'll have to look at taking a
cornerback high in the draft, too.

Bach blasts world leaders


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SOCHI, Russia -IOC
President Thomas Bach
accused world leaders
Tuesday of using the Sochi
Olympics as a political
platform "on the backs of
the athletes," and of snub-
bing the games without
even being invited.
Three days before the
opening of Russia's first
Winter Games, Bach used
a hard-hitting speech to
call out politicians for us-
ing the Olympics to make
an "ostentatious gesture"
serving their own agendas.
Without naming
any individuals, Bach's
comments appeared di-
rected at President Barack
Obama and European
politicians who have taken
stands against Russia's law
banning gay "propaganda"
among minors.


"Have the courage to
address your disagree-
ments in a peaceful direct
political dialogue and
not on the backs of the
athletes," he said at a cere-
mony attended by Russian
President Vladimir Putin.
"People have a very good
understanding of what
it really means to single
out the Olympic Games
to make an ostentatious
gesture which allegedly
costs nothing but produc-
es international headlines.
"In the extreme, we had
to see a few politicians
whose contributions to
the fight for a good cause
consisted of publicly
declining invitations they
had not even received."

Around the rings: Just over
half of Americans surveyed plan to
watch or follow the Winter Olympics,


according to an Associated Press-GfK
Poll, and one-third of respondents said
they have only a little or no confidence
about Russia's ability to safeguard the
Sochi Olympics. The likely audience
is on the older side, with 65 percent
age 50 or older planning to follow
the quadrennial event compared with
47 percent among younger adults,
according to the survey, conducted
from Jan. 17-21. ...
Top U.S. security officials told
President Obama that all appropriate
steps are being taken to keep
Americans safe at the Winter Olympics
in Sochi, Russia ...
Russian President Vladimir Putin
showed his softer side as he prepared
to welcome the world to his budget-
busting Winter Olympics. Basking in
the glow of support from International
Olympic Committee Chairman Thomas
Bach, Putin began his stay at the Sochi
Games by promoting a cuddly image,
visiting a group of endangered Persian
leopard cubs born last summer in the
mountains above the Black Sea resort.

* NBA ROUNDUP


Silver's


NBA


looking


golden


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Adam Silver is taking
over the NBA at a good
time.
In fact, for five teams,
it's a really good time.
Indiana, Miami,
Oklahoma City, San
Antonio and Portland
all entered today with
winning percentages of
.700 or better, and that's
significant.
Only one other time in
league history- 1997-98
- have as many as five
teams won at such a
rate, that coming in a
season when Chicago,
Indiana, Utah, Seattle and
the Los Angeles Lakers
did the honors. It's not
inconceivable that more
than five finish with that
good a record, with the
Los Angeles Clippers
and Houston still having
realistic shots, too.
At their current rates,
Indiana and Oklahoma
City are on pace to finish
with two of the top 25
records in NBA history.
Milwaukee, meanwhile,
would have the 11th-worst
mark ever if the season
was ending now. And
going back to last season,
including playoffs, the
Bucks have lost 55 of their
last 67 games (while the
Heat have won 63 times in
that same span, starting
on March 20).
Yes, there are some bad
teams in the league, and
that obviously plays a
role in helping everyone
else's record. But the first
championship awarded
in Silver's era as league
commissioner could go
to a team that can claim
it had one of the best
seasons the NBA ever saw.

Pacers 89, Hawks 85: In
Atlanta, David West scored 22 points,
Paul George added 18 and NBA-leading
Indiana beat the Hawks to snap a
12-game regular-season losing streak
in Atlanta while improving the league's
best record to 38-10.

Timberwolves 109,
Lakers 99: In Minneapolis, Kevin
Love had 31 points and 17 rebounds
for Minnesota, spoiling Steve Nash's
return for languishing Los Angeles
and handing the Lakers their seventh
consecutive defeat.

Around the league:
Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah
was fined by the NBA for yelling at
the officials after he was ejected from
Monday night's game at Sacramento.
Noah received two technical fouls in
less than three minutes during the
third quarter. The All-Star gestured at
the referees and yelled obscenities as
he was escorted off the court at the
7:40 mark. Noah apologized after the
game for his actions ...
Retired seven-time NBA All-Star
Tracy McGrady is aiming to become
a baseball player, and plans to try
pitching for the Sugar Land Skeeters of
the independent Atlantic League. That's
the same team that Roger Clemens
pitched for a couple of years ago.
"We look forward to monitoring his
progress;the team said in a statement.

PACQUIAO, BRADLEY
SEEK REDEMPTION
IN TITLE REMATCH
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.
- Manny Pacquiao and
Timothy Bradley intend to
leave no doubt this time.
Nearly two years after
Bradley beat the Filipino
congressman in a hotly
disputed split decision,
the welterweights both
seemed uncommonly
confident Tuesday for
their April 12 rematch.
That's because each
man is still unshakably
certain he won their first
meeting in June 2012.
The June 2012 decision
was savaged by fans,
media and even Bob
Arum, both fighters' pro-
moter. They all believed
Pacquiao's power and
combinations had beaten
Bradley's elusiveness and
tactical approach.
Bradley (31-0, 12 KOs)
feels wronged by the reac-
tions to his biggest win.
"With all the contro-
versy, this fight is about
redemption," Bradley
said. "I want to redeem
what I didn't get, which is
the credit. This is so I can
walk down the street and
nobody says, 'Hey, you
didn't win that fight, man.'
That hurts me."
Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38
KOs) wants to prove he's
back on top of his game
by avenging the loss that
snapped his 15-fight
winning streak....
Two former boxers, U.S. Sens.
John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Harry Reid
(D-Nev.), welcomed representatives of
the world's boxing and mixed martial
arts organizations to announce support
for a study to understand the effects of
repeated blows to the head.

Okla. teen says friends
thought gun held blanks:
One of three boys accused in the fatal

player last summer in Duncan, Okla.,
said in court that his friends believed
the gun used in the crime contained
only blanks. James Francis Edwards Jr.
agreed to testify against his co-defen-
dants during a preliminary hearing. In
exchange for his testimony continuing
through trial, prosecutors said they will
drop a murder charge and he would
only face an accessory charge ...
An associate of former NFL star
Aaron Hernandez was ordered held on
$1 million bond following his arrest on
charges that he opened fire outside a
Connecticut nightclub after an assailant
shot him in the leg. Alexander Bradley,
was arraigned on charges of criminal
possession of a firearm and criminal
use of a firearm, alleges in a Florida
lawsuit that he lost his right eye when
Hernandez shot him in the face as
they argued outside a Miami club last

NASCAR creates 'deterrence' penalty system


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CHARLOTTE, N.C.
- NASCAR unveiled a
revamped penalty system
Tuesday that for the first
time will define specific
offenses with pre-deter-
mined penalties.
The new "Deterrence
System" classifies six differ-
ent levels of penalties, with
fines and point deductions
increasing as the infrac-
tions become more severe.
The new system will be
applied only to technical
infractions; NASCAR will
still handle behavioral
offenses individually.
The structure also
allows the sanctioning
body to hit repeat
offenders with a multi-
plier that could increase

penalties by 50 percent.
NASCAR's previous
penalty system did not tie
pre-determined sanctions
to specific offenses.
"Our goal is to be
more effective, fair and
transparent," said Steve
O'Donnell, senior vice
president of racing
operations. "It's never our
intent to penalize, but in
order to keep the playing
field fair for everyone,
we recognize that strong
rules need to be in place."
NASCAR has also
removed chief appellate
officer John Middlebrook.
The retired General
Motors executive has
been replaced by Bryan
Moss, president emeritus
of Gulfstream Aerospace.

Middlebrook had over-
turned or modified some
key NASCAR decisions,
including a penalty to
Hendrick Motorsports in
2012 and Penske Racing
last year.
"I wanted to clearly
state that Bryan's ap-
pointment is not a result
of recent appeals out-
comes or because of the
changes to the Chase,"
O'Donnell said.
NASCAR also has
removed track promoters
from its appeals panel in
order to keep them from
having to rule on a team
while also needing that
team's members to help
promote races.
Another change to
the penalty system is

ATHLETES

FROM PAGE 1
kids get cold feet and
need a little extra time.
Or maybe mom flips
out, and needs to be
reassured that her baby
is in good hands. But
for the most part, by the
time Wednesday is over,
the vast majority of FBS
teams will have their
latest haul of players
locked up.
"It's a long day,"
Neuheisel said.
For a coach, the
best signing days are
drama-free.
"The last thing any
coach wants at the
1 Ith-hour is a surprise,"
Neuheisel said.
Five things to know
about signing day 2014:

S-E-C!
The reason why
the Southeastern
Conference wins all those
national championships
and bowls is apparent
every signing day. When
it comes to quality and
quantity, the Deep South
is the most fertile football
recruiting territory in the
country. SEC schools are
sinking big bucks into
coaches' salaries and facil-
ities to make sure all those
studs stay close to home.
Heading into signing day,
the leading recruiting
news sites Rivals.com,
Scout.com, ESPN.com and
247sports.com- all had
nine SEC teams ranked in
the national top 20. That
includes Tennessee, which
finished 5-7 last season
and Kentucky, which
won two games. Expect
Alabama to be crowned
recruiting national champs
- again by most
experts. The Crimson Tide
has had the No. 1 class
according to Rivals each
of the last three seasons.
Coach Nick Saban has
commitments from five
of Rivals' five-star recruits.
No other school has more
than three. Those schools?
Alabama's SEC West rivals
Auburn and Texas A&M.

2 SIGNING DAY STARS
Most of the top
prospects have
already made solid verbal
commitments. Signing
day is a formality. But a
few of the most-sought
after recruits in the nation


are still undecided:
Defensive back
Adoree' Jackson, from
Gardena, Calif., took late
trips to USC and UCLA
and is also considering
Florida and LSU. "That's
a family fight," said Mike
Farrell, national recruiting
analyst for Rivals. com.
Running back
Malik McDowell from
Southfield, Mich., appears
to be leaning Michigan
State, though his parents
aren't. "That's a pretty
publicized family battle,"
Farrell said.
Wide receiver Malachi
Dupre from River Ridge,
La. He and two of his
teammates took a late
trip to UCLA. Farrell says
LSU is still his best guess
on where Dupre lands,
but watch out for Florida
State.

3 FLIP-FLOPPERS
Last season, three
of Rivals' five-stars
flipped on signing day,
including Florida State
star defensive back Jalen
Ramsey. Farrell said
running back Joe Mixon
of Oaldey, Calif., is a
candidate to pull a similar
move this season. He's
committed to Oklahoma,
but maybe UCLA can
change his mind.

4 MAD HATTERS
The routine is
familiar to most
college football fans.
Recruit sits at a table
with a microphone and
announces his college
choice by grabbing a
hat with the logo of the
winner. A few turn to
props, like a live bulldog
puppy to choose Georgia.
Oh the drama! But
sometimes the prospect's
future coach knows what
is coming. "Two nights
before (signing day),
there's a bunch of what we
call secret commitments,"
Neuheisel said. "No one
knows but the coach and
(player) because they
want to make a big splash
and big surprise."

5 PERSPECTIVE
Seahawks quarter-
back Russell Wilson
was a two-star recruit,
according to Rivals, when
he signed with North
Carolina State in 2007. The
top-rated QB in that class
was Jimmy Clausen. This
is not an exact science.

the lead to 40-38, but
Charlotte turned on the
pressure, forcing three
straight turnovers and
turning them into points
to blow the game open.
Dwayne Reynolds
finished the 8-0 run
with an alley-oop to
make it 48-38 with 3:19
remaining.
"We shot well, but the
big thing were those
three straight stops and
layups on the other end
and extended the lead,"
Charlotte coach Tom
Massolio said.
Massolio started sopho-
more Jackson Beers and
gave fellow sophomore
Jimmy Laurin time in
the middle, getting big
contributions from both.
Beers hit two shots from
beyond the arc, while
Laurin capped a 10-0 run
in the third quarter with
a three-point play to give
Charlotte a 38-29 lead.
"They played well for us
and it's good for the young
guys to get in there and
contribute. That's what we
want," Massolio said.
The steady play of
Dwight Reynolds, who led
all scorers with 19 points,
and the Tarpons hitting
16 of their last 17 free

Bobcats had a 2-0 lead in
that match, but Tuesday
was prehaps more frus-

constant pressure on the
Mustangs' defense.
Mustangs sophomore
Reese Riggins scored the
first goal off a corner kick
by junior Jake Dube with
10 minutes, 21 seconds
left in the first half.
But the Bobcats came
back and scored on a five-

BULLDOGS

against Tampa Berkeley
Prep.
"The boys played hard,
they did well and we
had our chances, we just
didn't finish," DeSoto
County coach Tracy Hay
said. "I can't take any-
thing away from them.
They played hard, it just
didn't go our way."
The Bulldogs (12-6-2)
were making their second
regional semifinal appear-
ance in as many seasons
and used their experience
to calmly control the flow
of the game from the



RAYS

FROM PAGE 1
coach Richard Koonce
said. "They livened up
when we were down. We
kind of laid down and let
them get it. Sean's kids
played really hard and
they deserved to win the
game tonight."
The victory puts
Lemon Bay in the
district championship
game at Sebring on
Friday night and clinch-
es a berth in the regional
playoffs.
The Bulldogs looked
good early on as Tony
Lee hit three of five
3-point attempts in the
first half and Jones was
controlling the boards.
But the Mantas stayed
just close enough to
make their late charge.
Garza gave Lemon Bay
the lead for good with
layups on a pair of press
breaks and Hill added a
putback to stretch the
advantage to 47-43.


opening kick. Bishop Verot
(18-0-3) chose to stack the
midfield and leave DeSoto
County bogged down as it
tried to make its runs.
The Vikings were
afforded this opportu-
nity by a goal in the fifth
minute that took pressure
off the visitors. Duquette
Cullen knocked down a
midfield pass, outran his
coverage and tapped a
pass left to Tyler Yergens
just as keeper Edwin
Morales dove to stop
Cullen's shot, leaving
Yergens to score on an
unguarded net.
Bishop Verot struck
again in the 62nd minute
on a shot fromWeston
Cole after a perfectly

Three foul shots by
Kionte Atkins pulled
DeSoto County back, but
McGill answered with a
15-footer along the right
baseline to keep the
Bulldogs at bay.
When Garza was fouled
dunking on a press break
with 1:20 left, the fans
in the Tom Catanzarite
Gymnasium went crazy,
knowing a tournament
win was at hand.
The victory made some
of the lumps the Mantas
took in the regular
season suddenly appear
worthwhile.
"It's a lot easier," Straub
said. "All the pressure
is off. There's no more
pressure. We can just
play our game."

led Cole directly in front
of Morales to give the
Vikings an insurance goal.
"We knew that we had
to come on the road and
get the job done, and at
this point in the state
tournament, defense is
very important," Vikings
coach Raphael Gelin said.
"Offensively we had the
weapons, we knew that.
To have 17 or 18 shots
and have only two (go
in), that's not really us
though."
It took until the 69th
minute, but the Bulldogs
finally cracked Vikings
keeper Brandon Doyle
when DeSoto County's
corner kick bounced


around in the box and
was headed in by Manolo
Mejia.
The strike gave the
Bulldogs new energy and
from then until the final

and their fans gave it
their all.
They came up just
short in the end.

"This was the most
hardworking, talented
DeSoto team I've ever
coached," she added.
"The seniors are leaving
some big shoes to fill."

Fishermen's Village transforms into romantic getaway


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

your sweetie on Valentine's Day this year, Fishermen's

Fishermen's Village is the quintessential stay and
play destination, with dozens of restaurants, bars

event," said Catherine Perry, Fishermen's Village
event coordinator. "You can have dinner in one of
our restaurants, enjoy dancing with The Top Hats
and then have some fun desserts from Simply Sweet
(Confectionery Cafe)."
The amorous affair will be held in the Center Court,
which is in the midst of all the businesses. Simply
Sweet owner Amy Hicks says that no Valentine's Day
celebration is complete without chocolate.
"For dessert, we are doing a hot cocoa bar with
toppings," she said. "Then we'll have solid chocolate
heart favors and petite iced baked treats."
While dessert does sound delicious, you and your
heart's desire will probably want to have dinner
beforehand. Luckily, there are plenty of restaurants at
Fishermen's Village, several of which will be having
some special menu additions for the big day. It is
suggested that if you plan on having dinner at these

By SUSAN ERWIN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
If you're looking for a friendly, family-style diner
to enjoy breakfast, lunch or something to satisfy your
sweet tooth, check out Sweet's Diner in Port Charlotte.
Scott and Teresa Sweet own the mom-and-
pop style restaurant, hence the name for the
establishment.
Scott has been in the food industry for 25 years. He
started working as a teenager in Chicago at a hot dog
stand. He attended Western Illinois University and
majored in Hotel Restaurant Management.
Scott is the head cook at the diner and employs a
second cook to help out when things get really busy.
"I've always liked cooking and wanted to be in the
restaurant business. It's been a dream of mine for
years"said Scott."And I've always thought people
have to eat so I should always have a job."
The Sweet family moved to Southwest Florida from
Chicago nearly a decade ago when Scott was offered
a job as the Food Service Director at Jacaranda Trace
in Venice.
When theyfound out the former owner of the
restaurant wanted to sell it in 2007, they decided it

mini-muffins are a complimentary addition to every meal.


was time to make the dream a reality.
"It was with a lot of careful consideration and
countless prayers, that we decided to open the
restaurant;'Scott said.
Scott said he tries to keep the prices lower than
most other places so he can keep competitive in the
market.
The restaurant seats up to 45 people and recently has
received upgrades such as fresh paint and newtaupe
carpeting to provide patrons a cozy atmosphere.
\ Teresa keeps busy taking care of the couple's
four school-age children and helps out at the
S diner on the weekends.


PIW The Greek omelet is made with three
eggs and includes spinach, tomatoes,
mushrooms, onions and feta cheese. The
omelets are served with homemade home fries
and toast.


The restaurant has a busy breakfast shift on the weekends. The staff is fast and
friendly as they try to keep the customers happy.


The restaurant has three friendly, fast-moving
servers who make sure the food gets served hot.
Breakfast items include the "Pile Up"which is two
eggs atop a pile of home fries, sausages, a biscuit,
gravy and cheese piled high for hungry customers.
Guests who order it can take home a bumper sticker
that states: "Sweet's Diner: The Pile Up Never be
Hungry Again."
Other breakfast specials include a variety of
omelets and pancakes.
Lunch items include homemade soups, salads, a
variety of burgers and fresh or grilled sandwiches. A
kids menu is also available.
Each meal comes with a complimentary home-
made mini muffin.
"It's something my mother-in-law came up with.
She said give each customer a special little treat and
they will remember it and come back;'Scott said.
The owners also know the importance of giving
back to the community.
Every third Saturday of each month they donate
meals for the homeless in conjunction with the


Charlotte County Homeless Center.
"We provide a hot meal, whether it's pasta, sloppy
Joe's or barbecue pork sandwiches we provide
something every month,"Scott said.
The restaurant offers a rewards program where
customers can earn cash back through a program
called Lyoness.
"Every time they come in they can earn five
percent of their bill which is deposited in a cash
account and when it reaches $10 it gets forwarded to
an account and they can do whatever they want with
the cash,";' Scott said.
On holidays, such as Valentines' Day, female custom-
ers receive a rose or another small trinket to reflect the
mood of the holiday."We also try to feature a special
breakfast item on most holidaysScott said.

This image released by Universal Pictures shows Ice Cube,
left, and Kevin Hart in a scene from"Ride Along.":'



By TOM LOVASKO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Comedian Kevin Hart stars in"Ride Along/"a buddy-cop action
comedythat is predictable yet entertaining. It's really about the
charismatic Hart and, without his presence, this movie would not
have sold many tickets.
Hart has built a following from his stand-up routines as well
as smaller roles in otherfilms. He reminds many of Eddie Murphy
teaming with Nick Nolte in"48 Hrs"then breaking out solo as the
"Beverly Hills Cop/in the '80s decade. But Hart isn't there yet and Ice
Cube, his co-star in this film, is not exactly the best partner matchup.
In"Ride Along/the funny guy played by Hart is Ben, a fast-
talking video game-aholic who works as a high school security
guard and is inspired to become a cop. His girlfriend's brother James,
Ice Cube's character, is a tough, straight-faced loner of a cop. James
needs Ben to prove himself, not only as a future brother-in-law, but
also a manly man cop. So, Ben rides along with James for 24 hours
while Hart carries the comedy in both one-liners and slapstick. The
two eventually connect as they pursue Omar, a mysterious Serbian
arms dealer, and the action heats up.
Tika Sumpter plays Ben's girlfriend Angela but her character
is in the background, never really coming to life. Seasoned actor
Lawrence Fishburn also takes a turn as a bad guy but his part
is also uninteresting. And, since it is an "action"comedy, expect
plenty of fighting that Ben gets involved in, taking him beyond
his"platinum level"video game skills and into the real world. He's
funny but not hilarious as he confronts a bike gang, talks trash
with a playground kid, deals with a looney in a farmers market
and bumbles around a shooting range.
"Ride Along"is an okay film and it provides a vehicle for Kevin
Hart's rising star comedictalents. And, not surprisingly, a sequel is
already in the works. That may be good or bad for the funnyman
who could certainly benefit with better scripting.
I left the movie realizing that it didn't provide much of
anything new as another cop comedy. But, after previously seeing
Kevin Hart only in movie trailers, I couldn't stop thinking that he
could be the next Eddie Murphy, which says a
lot. Time will tell.

Learn to dance as the Greeks do at the 21st Annual Greek Fest


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
If you've ever seen the comedic movie "My Big
Fat Greek Wedding," you know that people of Greek
decent enjoy sharing their culture with each other
and with other people. At the annual Greek Fest in
Port Charlotte on Friday, Feb. 14 through 16, you can
enjoy the history, dress, dances, music, crafts and, of
course, the food that Greek people are so passionate
about.
Greek Festivals in America have grown in
popularity through the years as a way to celebrate
the fun-loving spirit of Greece. Cathy Sanders, the
chair of advertising for the Port Charlotte Greek
Fest, says that the whole Greek community pitches
in to help prepare for the big weekend.
"All the (Greek) churches around the country have
festivals to show the culture of the big
traditions," she said. "They've
all been preparing for
quite some time,
making pastries and
such."
At a cost of only l
$3 for the whole
weekend, you can
gain admission

experience the best the One of the primary

Bob Amer will deliver singing Valentines on Feb. 14 in the Sarasota and Bradenton areas.


Singing Valentine in


Sarasota and Bradenton area


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
If you have never received a singing Valentine,
you have not received a Valentine.
While some might quarrel
with that statement and
others might prefer a large
heart-shaped box of candy, for
many, the ultimate Valentine
involves real people singing
real old-fashioned love songs.
On Friday, Feb. 14, members of
the Chorus of the Keys will be out and
about in Sarasota and Bradenton deliv-
ering cards, roses and
singing Valentines
to the lucky few for
whom someone has
ordered up a singing
Valentine.
If you are out and about
in Sarasota or Bradenton
that day, you might see the
singers at a doctor's office,
beauty salon, fitness
center or elsewhere.
Those living in those areas p0
might be wise to let loved
ones know where they plan to
be and when --just saying.
To order a singing Valentine,
call Dave Richards at 941-371-6644 or send an
email to richards70@msn.com. The cost is $40


during daytime hours and $50 after 5 p.m. For
information, visit ChorusOfTheKeys.com.
With more than 100 members and a 60-year
history, the chorus is one of the oldest arts groups
in Sarasota. It was formed in 1949 to
preserve the tradition of barbershop
quartet singing. The chorus won
the Florida State Championships in
2004 and 2009.
The chorus will present its
annual show at 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Son Feb. 22 at the Riverview Performing
Arts Center, 1 Ram Way, Sarasota. Tickets
are $22-$35 per person. Call 941-484-7589 or
visit ChorusOfTheKeys.org.

Experience the beauty of


Venice on Segway wheels


yet's Go!


EII,. ,February 5- 11,20ii


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Segway, first introduced more than a decade
ago, never really took off as a mode of transportation.
In the last couple of years, though, it has emerged as
a popular means to take guided tours of resort areas
orjust generally interesting places.
Maureen Kearns, owner of Segway Venice, obviously
picked up on that trend. Alreadythe owner of Detroit
Segways, she came up with the idea of starting her
Venice company after spending some time in Punta
Gorda. Now she spends the summer months in Detroit
and the winter months on the Suncoast.
"We provide three different Venice tours every day
on the Segways," she said. "We just got started here


about the 15th of December and my first tour was the
next day."
The three tours each last about two hours, but
cover different areas and interests:
The Nolen PlanTour begins at 10a.m. It's made
for urbanites and history buffs and is the only tour
that ventures into downtown. A knowledgeable tour
guide will discuss the history of Venice and lead you
past historic buildings, residential districts and several
parks, which were a tenet of John Nolen's city plan.
Along the way you'll also see plenty of modern day
fun to be had in Venice. This tour is $65/person.
The Legacy Trail Tour begins at 1 p.m. This tour is
for those who want to ride and ride and maybe
even go a little quicker. This paved trail, converted
from the Seaboard Airline Railway, provides a perfect

Southwind Bluegrass Band entertains with true mountain music


By SUSAN ERWIN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
If you find yourself in a mood where you want
to relax, sit back and enjoy some"feel good"music,
you'll want to check out one of the upcoming
performances bythe Southwind Bluegrass Band.
Together, the group creates quick-rhythm, south-
ern based sounds and lyrics that make you want to
groove along with a cold beverage and focus on the
more enjoyable things in life.
Bob Barrett, founder of the band, is a Florida
native with more than 50 years of experience in the
music industry.
"To me, this is the most interesting band I have
ever been in;"Barrett said."l am having the most
fun I have had in years."
John Temples and Brian Hartlieb are also in the
band.
Bob and Brian met in 1991 at an open jam
session in Fort Myers. They met John three years ago
also at a jam session at Gilcrest Park in Punta Gorda.
"We became'picking buddies'right away," Bob
said. "These are my friends, this is my social life."
John has been playing the banjo for many
years and was the Utah state banjo champion for
three years. He played on stage with The New Christy

from practice to pose for a photo.


Minstrels, a famous folk band from the 1960s.
Hartlieb plays the guitar and sings.
"I grew up in the 1970s and took upon playing the
guitar when I started listening to The Eagles,";' Hartlieb
said. "They had a pretty easy sound to reproduce."


Hartlieb said his first guitar was a cheap one that
his mother bought at a Woolworth store.
"It was a piece of junk and it was missing one of the
strings but I learned howto play on it,"Hartlieb said.
Barrett plays the resonator guitar, known as


cuan (


a dobro, which was developed before the age of
modern amplifiers as a wayto increase the volume
of a standard acoustic guitar.
"It has a very unique sound and blends well with
other acoustic instruments,";' Barrett said.
Barrett has a diverse and interesting background. He
is a presently a psychotherapist and does student coun-
seling at Edison State College. Barrett is past president of
the Southwest Florida Bluegrass Association and current
treasurer of the Heartland Bluegrass Association. He also
teaches banjo at Ace Drums in Port Charlotte.
Barrett played in the folk group"The Fraternity"in
the 1960s and got into Bluegrass music in the 1990s.
"What makes Southwind unique is that we try not to
play predictable songs, we don't want to just play the
same songs heard at jam sessions, we tryto do more
complex chord progressions to mix it up,";' Barrett said.
The group will be at the Banjo Bash scheduled
for Valentine's weekend, Friday and Saturday,
Feb. 14 and 15, at the Charlotte County Event Center,
75 Taylor St., Punta Gorda. Also, from 6 p.m. to
8 p.m., Feb. 20, they will be at Wally's Barbecue in Port
Charlotte and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., March 1, they will
be atthe HistoricTrain Depot in Punta Gorda.

Beauty Inside and Out


Tucked into the serene and beautifully manicured setting, is the Boca
Royale Golf & Country Club in south Sarasota County.This stately
course opening originally in 1966 offers recently renovated greens and
amenities set amongst the statuesque mature oak, cypress, and palm
trees. Home to an 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course, the
course boasts lush surroundings and elegant homes of the gated
community set a comfortable distance from the greens. Golfers enjoy
the natural backdrop of the preserves while seeing offtters, eagles, and
Sandhill Cranes in their environment.
The semi-private Boca Royale Golf & Country Club is open to the
public and offers newly renovated practice facilities with putting green,
sand bunker, and a pitching and chipping area. U.S.G.A. golf

s professional Adrian Matern and assistant
professional Scott Holcomb offer lessons to
both members and the golfing public.
Holcomb, who has been with Boca Royale
since 2009, said the whole experience begins
when golfers are welcomed in the parking lot
by courteous staff and proceed to the pro
shop and out to the beautiful grounds. After
enjoying the outdoors, golfers are invited
inside to the Georgian style clubhouse for
exceptional dining and picturesque views.
"It's not about hitting the drivers and it's not
about making par," said Holcomb. "It's about
enjoying all the other things along the way"
Golfers have a choice of five tees ranging
from the Diamond Tees, measuring 6,357
yards, to the Bronze Tees, measuring 4,891
yards. Matern, who qualified for the PGA in
South Africa, says that although it is
considered a short course, it has earned its
reputation as a true local challenge. "It is truly
a shot-makers layout," Matern said. 'With
towering oaks hugging narrow fairways, our
sharp doglegs and false carries demand the full attention of even the
most skilled golfers."
Memberships are available to non-residents of the Boca Royale
community and can be purchased for single, family, and seasonal
terms. A variety of plans offer benefits including member-only golf
tournaments, driving range rights, Bocce, clay tennis courts, and a
private fitness center.

Room and a casual dining experience at the 19th Hole. Boca Royale
Golf & Country Club is located at 1601 Englewood Road in Englewood.

'Radio Gals' returns to the Cabaret


PROVIDED BY THE VENICE THEATRE

March 2. Performances of this exuberant
musical comedy by Mark Hardwick and
Michael Craver are at 8 p.m. on Tuesday

Hazel Hunt (played by Dawn Carpenter), a


retired music teacher who receives a radio
transmitter as a retirement gift. Hunt begins
transmitting a few airwaves of her own from
her small town in Arkansas. She is joined by
her all-girl orchestra,"the Hazelnuts,"as they
gleefully host the radio show and fight pesky
FCC regulations to keep it on the air.
"Radio Gals"is back by popular demand
after a successful run at Venice Theatre in the
fall of 2011.
The theatre's Producing Director Allan
Kollar has brought back the creative team
from 2011. Michelle Kasanofsky provides
musical direction and Becky Holahan is the
choreographer. The 2011 cast of"Radio Gals"

By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Proof positive that Florida is different from the rest
of the U.S. is the timing of its annual state fair.
The 110th annual Florida State Fair opens
tomorrow at the fairgrounds in Tampa. Most other
state fairs will be in July, August or September to
coordinate with the growing season of the area. This
year's fair runs Feb. 6-17.
Billed as "the first state fair of the year," Florida's
fair not only coincides perfectly with the state's citrus
and strawberry crops but with the arrival of the
state's biggest crop of all Snowbirds. The fair also
claims the largest "independent midway"and the
largest traveling roller coaster in the country."
Free is also a big thing at the fair which offers free
admission to special people on certain days and three
free concerts: America at 7 p.m. on Feb. 6; Sister Hazle
at 7 p.m. on Feb. 13; and Uncle Kracker at 7 p.m. on
Feb. 17. Some of the free admission deals include free
admission of active, reserve and retired military with
valid ID on opening day (Feb. 6) and free admission
to all members of 4-H and Future Farmers of America
with ID or jacket on Feb. 8 and 15.
Food is always a big deal at the fair where, in
additional to popcorn, funnel cakes and french fries,
one should not be surprised to find chocolate-covered
bacon and some unusual burgers. This year 35-year
fair vendors Dennis and Cheryl Reas of Carousel Foods
will offer three new burgers: the Ramen Noodle
Burger, the Healthier Burger and the 3Bs Burger. The
Ramen burger gets its name from its Ramen noodle
bun made from Asian slaw and Oriental Sauce.
The healthier burger earns its name from the soy
burger, whole wheat bagel thin, Parmesan-crusted
eggplant, provolone cheese and veggies.
Burger, bacon and brisket give the 3B Burger its


name. Served on garlic toa; t thi; burer ri;l:opped
with Provolone cheese, homemade horseradish or
barbecue sauce and your favorite veggies.
There also is plenty to learn at the fair, which
will have exhibits on animals and agriculture and
- something unique to the Florida Fair Cracker
Country, where one can learn about the state's rural
heritage in exhibits about the 1890s. The exhibit,
which is open on select Saturdays throughout the
year as well as daily during the fair, includes 13
buildings dating from 1870 to 1912. Admission is
free with your state fair admission ticket.
Advance tickets for the fair can be purchased today
at Walgreens stores throughout the state as well as
at all participating AAA offices. Beginning tomorrow,
purchase tickets at the gate.
While you can save money by buying tickets in
advance, there are 110 freebies associated with the
fair, including parking and the above-mentioned
concerts. There also are discounts for special groups
like seniors, members of the military and students
plus special purchase armbands that offer discounts
on rides for specific times.
Advance admission is $7 for seniors, $9 for
adults, $5 for children 6-11 and free for those 5
and younger. Ride armbands are $25 if purchased
in advance. Regular gate admission is $11 for
seniors, $13 for adults, $6 weekdays for children
and $7 on weekends. For themed promotional days,
evening hours (they vary) and special deals, visit
FloridaStateFair.com.
The fair location is: 4800 U.S. Highway 301 North,
Tampa 33610.
From Sun newspaper territory, travel north on
Interstate 75 to Exit 260B. Merge left onto Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. Boulevard (SR 574 West). Travel west
for 2.5 miles, past the light at U.S. Highway 301. Turn
right into the Fairgrounds entrance.

Devic disease is autoimmune REX MOR"GAN By Woody Wilson and Terry Beatty
YEsI I TILL LOvE POMEs ITH OSN" T HaLP on o I7 F
attack on optic nerve BT T41 HE YULE [K
L015T RESPETFR HER SHOO'r YOU F PI


DEAR DR. ROACH:
My 32-year-old daughter
has been diagnosed with
Devic disease. A year
ago, she had five days of
intravenous steroids to
deal with optic neuritis.
The optic nerve is 100
percent healed, but she
still has pain. Antibodies
show up in her blood-
work. She is about to
undergo two treatments,
two weeks apart, of rit-
uximab, hopefully killing
the antibodies. What
little information I have
found online is not very
helpful in understanding
this disease and what we
can expect in the future.
- S.M.Y.
ANSWER: Neuromyelitis
optica, also called Devic
disease, is a neurological
condition that causes
inflammation of both
the optic nerve and the
spinal cord. It can look
very similar to multiple
sclerosis, but the presence
of the NMO antibodies is
helpful in distinguishing
NMO from MS.
NMO appears, like MS,
to be an autoimmune
disease, with the antibody
representing the attack of
the body on the nervous
system. Both steroids and
rituximab suppress the
immune system. Several
studies, one published
just a few weeks ago,
show very promising
results for NMO using
rituximab whenever a
specific type of immune
cell is detectable in the
blood. The antibodies
themselves aren't de-
stroyed, but the cells that
make the specific anti-
bodies are suppressed.
In the study, 60 per-
cent of patients had no
relapse, and 93 percent
had improvement or
stabilization.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
About four years ago I
bought a vibration ma-
chine. I'm a 64-year-old
female with major back
issues, but I can exercise
on the vibration machine
with no problems. In fact,
when I went in for my
last bone density check,
my bone density had
increased over 14 percent!
My doctor said it was
unbelievable.
I understand that many
retirement homes may
have this machine. My
ultimate wish would
be that hotels would all
put one in their exercise
room! Ten minutes on
the machine equals four
miles of jogging. L.J.
ANSWER: Vibration ma-
chines have been around
for years, but the data
supporting them is patchy.


Dr. Roach

Some studies have found
that they do not improve
osteoporosis; others show
a slight improvement.
Many studies have shown
an improvement in low
back pain and in strength.
The machines are general-
ly safe, but they can cause
injuries, especially in the
elderly.
Although vibration
machines can improve
fitness, I don't believe that
10 minutes on an exercise
machine gives you all the
benefits of four miles of
jogging. Bone density lev-
els show a lot of variation,
so a single large increase
doesn't always mean a
sustained gain.
I think it's too early to
recommend vibration
therapy as a standard
treatment for osteoporo-
sis. It may have a role for
people who are unable
to do other kinds of
exercises.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
In a recent column, you
said, "Some people can't
absorb fructose." I'd like
to know more about that.
What are the side effects
of the inability to absorb
fructose? How does that
happen? I.N.
ANSWER: Fructose is
a sugar naturally found
in fruits, but also in
sweeteners, especially
honey and high-fructose
corn syrup. Other sugars,
such as glucose, improve
fructose absorption. Few
people get symptoms
just from natural foods,
because these contain the
other natural sugars that
improve fructose absorp-
tion. On the other hand,
sorbitol (a "sugar alco-
hol") decreases fructose
absorption.
Almost half the popu-
lation cannot completely
absorb fructose, and the
more fructose people
take in, the greater the
risk of the symptoms of
malabsorption, includ-
ing diarrhea, gas and
bloating.
I recommend against
HFCS for many reasons,
but this is another one.
For people with symp-
toms of malabsorption,
I recommend a trial of
reducing fructose and
sorbitol.

clean a whole stalk of cel-
ery, then cut it in lengths
to fit in a large jar. I put
cold water over it, put the
lid on and put it in the
refrigerator. It keeps for a
long time and stays crisp.

Safe food
Dear Heloise: Recently,
a friend made an ex-
pensive seafood gumbo
with $150 worth of fresh
seafood. She called me
when she opened the
refrigerator and said that,
upon lifting the pot's lid, it
was bubbling.
Restaurants cool down
large quantities with large
ice wands. My hint for at
home is that you freeze
a 1- to 2-liter soda bottle
(plastic). You can place it
in the pot when you pull
it from the stove, and it
will start to cool down. -
Miriam J., via email
Oh dear! What a waste of
some yummy (not cheap
to make, either) gumbo!
This is a good lesson for
all of us. After cooking
large quantities of some-
thing, try putting it into
smaller containers before
placing in the refrigerator.
However, cooling down
soup using your hint cer-
tainly would help prevent
the bubbling over that
your friend experienced.
Another method for
cooling soups in large pots
is to submerge the pot in
a sink or tub filled with ice
water.


OOOOH...
I LOVE
FALLING!i

Hints from Heloise

Frozen pops
Dear Heloise: I love your
column in the Lubbock
(Texas) Avalanche-Journal
and clip a lot of them.
Pudding snacks were
on sale, so I bought a
lot. I cut a slit in the foil,
insert a wooden craft
stick and freeze. I cover it
with foil so the stick will
stand up. Kids love them.
- Barbara C. in Texas

Tiny funnel
Dear Heloise: Recently,
I couldn't find my small
funnel to refill my salt
and pepper shakers. I
grabbed a round icing tip
from my cake decorating
set and used it. It worked
well, as there were no
spills! Lisa Z. in Texas

Crack open
Dear Heloise: I have
difficulty opening pack-
ages, bottles and jars. I
solved the problem of
opening small, screw-
top bottles by using a
nutcracker that has been
in the family for years.
Works like a charm! -

Woman on the rebound

wants back in ex's court


DEAR ABBY: After a
two-year relationship
ended, I got pregnant on
the rebound. I called my ex
and told him I was having
a baby with another man
because I wanted to hurt
him. Apparently it worked
- at least that's what his
best friend told me.
Now that a few months
have passed, I ran into him
and all those loving feelings
I had for him came rushing
back. Should I tell him?
The father of this baby is a
good-for-nothing deadbeat.
He wants to be father-of-
the-year without helping
me financially.
What should I do about
my feelings for my ex, and
what should I do about
the father of my baby? -
CAN'T DECIDE IN NEW
JERSEY
DEAR CANT DECIDE: It
is time for you to grow up
and accept responsibility
for the situation you're in
right now. Your behavior
has been immature and
irresponsible. The child
you're carrying is going to
need someone who can
provide for him or her
financially and emotionally.
Because you have
feelings for your ex, contact
him and let him know,
but don't count on him
wanting to reconcile. Then
you should also contact a
lawyer about ensuring that
"Babydaddy" lives up to his
financial responsibilities.
And in the future, when
you decide to have sex with
someone, recognize there
could be consequences
and use birth control. Every
time!
DEAR ABBY: Recently my
mother and I got into an
argument on a four-hour
road trip. She didn't like my
opinions or my answers, so
she kicked my 17-year-old
daughter and me out of her
vehicle and abandoned us
in an unsafe neighborhood
two hours from our home.
She has done it twice
before, and I have yet to
hear an apology from her
for dumping us on the curb.
Luckily, my son was able
to come and retrieve us.
Most people would have
cut her off the first time she


Dear Abby

pulled this stunt, but I'm a
"three-strikes-you're-out"
kind of person. I have given
my mother many opportu-
nities to apologize for her
behavior, but she refuses
to acknowledge her own
wrongdoing.
I have decided this is the
last time this will happen
to me. I no longer speak
to her and won't allow my
daughter to go anywhere
with her for fear she will be
dumped somewhere un-
safe. My other kids ages
21 and 22 say I should
get over it. Was cutting her
off a reasonable response?
-THUMBIN' FORA RIDE
DEAR THUMBIN': Your
mother appears to have
a short fuse and poor
judgment. Is cutting her off
a reasonable response? I
think so. Dumping some-
one in an unsafe neighbor-
hood could get the person
killed, something we see
all too often in the media.
If you ever decide to relent,
however, and go anywhere
with her, make sure you are
the one behind the wheel
because it's clear Mama
can't be trusted when she's
in the driver's seat.

"But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his
countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I
have refused him;for the Lord seeth not as man seeth;
for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the
Lord looketh on the heart,"- 1 Samuel 16:7.
Look at what God is looking at! If we are right at this
point it won't matter at all what people say, think or see.

Opening lead: Three of 4.
China has been a rising force in the
bridge world for some years now.
Today's hand is from an important
Chinese tournament last year. The
actual auction would take two
columns to explain, so we've
substituted an auction that provides
the same information and arrives at
the same place. The two clubs (very
strong hand) and two diamonds
(waiting bid) were both artificial.
South, with a high-card minimum,
should probably have passed at his


last turn, but then there would be no
story to tell.
The opening club lead went to
East's nine and declarer's ace.
Declarer crossed to dummy with the
jack of diamonds and ran the jack of
hearts. West won the ace and led back
another diamond. South cashed the
king of clubs. Should the queen fall
doubleton, he would have 12 tricks
after another heart finesse. No luck.
A 3-3 split in hearts would give him
12 tricks, but there was a problem.
He needed two entries to the board -
one to finesse in hearts and another to
cash the long heart. South led his low
spade and, holding his breath,
inserted dummy's 10 when West
played low. He now had the extra
entry he needed and was able to score
up his slam.
Not so fast. This never actually
happened. Chen Yuechen, the 25-
year-old Chinese expert sitting West,
made the fabulous play of the jack
when South led his low spade! This
prevented the second dummy entry
and defeated the slam. Chinese
bridge players have earned the
respect of the international bridge
community. It is easy to see why.

Faces melt. Seashells occupy brains. And, somehow, Abraham Lincoln magically appears. Walking around the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg is like taking a stroll inside Salvador Dalis mind, though thankfully there are exits back to reality. The museum, itself, reflects Dali in its architecture: functional versus unexpected. Designed by architect Yann Weymouth of HOK, the new building combines the rational with the fantastical: a simple rectangle with 18-inch thick hurricane-proof walls out of which erupts a large free-form geodesic glass bubble known as the enigma, according to www.thedali. org. The enigma, which is made up of 1,062 triangular pieces of glass, stands 75 feet at its tallest point, a 21st century homage to the dome that adorns Dalis museum in Spain. Inside the museum is a narrow, spiral staircase designed to look like Dalis obsession with spirals and the double helical shape of the DNA molecule, states www.thedali.org. If you are capable of taking stairs, dont skip these steps. Its one of the most unique staircases youll ever climb. The Dali Museum is filled with his work that spans his early years as an art student in Spain through his adult years. Part of the admission price includes the use of an audio guide unit. Dont miss out on this either. The audio guide tour provides additional information about Dali than is available on signs. You will notice that there are two different numbers and symbols for the audio guide by some pieces of Dalis art. One is the serious, straight-forward information. The other, denoted by the mustache symbol, is geared to kids between the ages of 5 and 13. (Inside tip: Play the mustache numbers too. You will learn fun, entertaining information about Dali such as how he drove his teachers crazy and what he did to be the center of attention). The museum also offers free docent tours throughout the day, though these can be crowded. The following are just some of Dalis amazing artwork on display: Santiago El Grande, a 1957 Dali worth the drive EAST OF PUNTA GORDA Near the intersection of Bermont Road (County Road 74) and State Road 31, there were a few cans and bottles scattered about Tuesday and what appeared to be a recently shredded tire. But the amount of trash and debris had been much worse until recently. Saturday, inmates from the Taking out the trashBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERInmates beautify dumpy intersectionDUMPY | 6 A display of talent SUN PHOTOS BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGERMeadow Park Elementary School rst-grader Emily ONeal poses with her self-portrait. This art of a prominent saxophone, by Charlotte High School senior Ashley Wilson, won a blue ribbon.MURDOCK Walking into the Charlotte County Fairgrounds on Sunday, visitors couldnt help but see the whirling rides that transport the daring up to dizzying, gravity-defying heights. But as they entered the fair through the expo building, most couldnt help but pause to examine the amazing display of artwork done by hundreds of local school students. Just beyond the door, eyes were immediately drawn to two of Charlotte High Schools huge paintings, complete with museum-quality frames. Senior Ashley Wilson, winner of a blue ribbon, portrayed the close-up of a musicians hands cradling a saxophone. The details plastic chairs, the musicians blue jeans and adolescent beaded bracelet hint at the musician's age. Senior Sarah Everts painting awarded a second-place red ribbon showed a ballet dancer, complete with pointe shoes, seated outside in a oral chair with legs sprawled over the chairs arm as the dancer looks pensively in the opposite direction. As impressive as the high school art is, however, many younger students headed for the middle and elementary school displays to see their own art. Meadow Park Elementary School rst-grader Emily ONeal and her par ents, Ben and Melissa, found Emilys mixed media self-portrait on the wall. Our teacher told us to make a picture of ourselves, she said. She worked Student art on exhibit at the fairBy BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGERSUN CORRESPONDENTFAIR | 6CHARLOTTE COUNTY If the challengers have their way, the race for District 4 county commissioner will come down to economic issues facing Charlotte and its residents. Dave Ivankovic and Don Monroe have declared their candidacy for the seat currently held by Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch. Ivankovic, a Republican, will face off with Deutsch in the Aug. 26 primary, while Monroe, with no party afliation, will await the winner in the general election Nov. 4. As the owner of an insurance agency for 11 years, Ivankovic, 41, said the county should be run like a business, and that he holds the experience to ensure scal responsibility. In advocating that the county live within its means, he promises to rein in government spending. I have to make decisions every day that affect my nancial future, he said. Sometimes you have to do a lot with a little. The rst-time candidate also wants to help taxpayers by expanding the tax base. This can be done, he said, by giving the county the resources to market more aggressively its three main assets the beaches, the harbor and the Punta Gorda Airport. Im a proponent for economic development, he said. The only way to lessen the burden on existing taxpayers is through economic growth. In the insurance business, Ivankovic works directly with residents and business owners, giving him a rm Commission hopefuls sound the chargeBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERCHARGE | 6 ChristyFEINBERGCOLUMNISTLIVE LIKE A TOURIST SUN PHOTO BY CHRISTY FEINBERGDont take the elevator. Be sure to climb the staircase, which reects Dalis interest in spirals and DNA. CHRISTY | 6 PHOTO PROVIDEDInmates collected more than 75 large garbage bags full or trash and around 100 tires during a cleanup project Saturday near a heavily trav eled stretch of road east of Punta Gorda. The intersection of State Road 31 and Bermont Road has an area for truckers to pull o and rest, and the place had become littered.

Our Town Page 4 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, February 5, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Congratulations to the Charlotte County Concert Band, which is celebrating 40 years of making music at an anniversary performance at 2 p.m. on Sunday at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County. In 1974, a group of retirees organized a group called the Centennial Band with the goal of playing well enough to celebrate Americas Bicentennial in 1976. The band has continued to thrive through the last 40 years and now numbers more than 70 during most winters. Hannah Jae, 14-yearold musical phenom, will be the guest vocalist as the band commemorates its founding. The program selected by the director, DeVere Fader, offers a varied concert of classical and popular music. Chet Mientus, clarinetist, will solo in Blue Moon, by Rodgers and Hart, and Andrew Heavener, a student member, will be narrator in a novelty number, Peck Horns Revenge. The program will conclude with Tchaikovskys Overture. The band is a nonprofit corporation made up of musicians who rehearse weekly and perform in monthly concerts during the winter. The only requirement to join is the ability to read and perform the music the band plays. Many members are retired music professionals, but others are people who have continued to play instruments throughout their lives. The band also welcomes student members and provides a place where young people can continue to play after they leave school. Tickets are $11 for Cultural Center members, $12 others, in advance, at 941-625-4175, or $13 day of show. Heres a fun way to spend Valentines Day.

A Vietnamera veteran who served in Germany, Monroe is making his rst run for elective ofce and doing it his way funding his own campaign without outside donations. As such, he said he is a true independent in the race, beholden to no one. And he is tired of government dysfunction. Ive watched this circus, and it divides the country and it divides the house, he said. A house divided falls. Monroe said his top priority will be xing a broken tax system. A licensed real estate agent, Monroe is opposed to the inequities faced by homeowners due to the countys reliance on MSBUs (municipal service benet units) to pay special assessments for particular services, such as for road and drainage maintenance, stormwater utility or sanitation service. An MSBU is a lien on the property that can never be paid off, he said. Theyre using this MSBU system to the point of where its an abomination.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comCHARGEFROM PAGE 1FAIRFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGERA ballet dancers unusual setting, depicted by Charlotte High School senior Sarah Everts, won a red ribbon.Charlotte County Jails Beautication Program spent much of the day lling more than 75 large garbage bags with trash, and removing about 100 tires from along the busy roadways. They do good work, said Lt. Jessica Long, Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce detention support services commander. Waste Management can only do so much and (the Florida Department of Transportation) can only do so much. Were just another piece of the puzzle, in cooperation with them. We give them a little more coverage by being able to pick up when we can. Inmates collected and piled the garbage and tires near the intersection so Waste Management could pick it up Monday and Tuesday. Long coordinates with Waste Management and FDOT to schedule cleanup projects for the jails Beautication Program, which has been around for four years. A lot of inmates enjoy it, said Long. It gets them outside. And they really like being able to go in, look at a mess, work hard all day and then look at the fruits of their labor and say, Yeah, we did that. Eight inmates took part in Saturdays effort, but sometimes as many as 20 will make up a cleaning crew. Typically, the inmates work from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and cover as much ground as they can. Busy roadways and homeless camps are usually the targeted cleanup sites. Some of them really take pride in making an area look better, said Long. Those traveling through Punta Gorda via State Road 31 after Saturdays cleanup noticed a difference. Thats great that the inmates do that, said Indiana resident Dwain Kuhn, who said he was visiting Florida to enjoy the sunshine. If they dont do it, whos going to do it? Kuhn had pulled his motorcycle off at Bermont and S.R. 31 Tuesday to check a map. See that? he said, pointing at a few soda cans in the grass near the road. That could be a lot worse. Ofcials say it was. Lorenzo Daetz, senior solid waste program manager for Charlotte County, said the county recently received complaints from residents who live in the area. So we went out there and took a look and immediately determined that it was an issue, he said. The county requested the inmates aid. It was a great help, said Daetz. Theyre definitely an asset because the county just doesnt have funding for people to go with bags and sticks and pick up litter. The shoulders of the road near the problematic intersection are widened, so trucks can pull off. Authorities believe resting truckers cause most of the litter. The trucks just keep on coming in every direction, said Daetz. And the problem with monitoring the area is its so far removed. CCSO spokeswoman Debbie Bowe agrees that its hard to stop the litterers. Its difficult to catch them, she said. Because, are you going to throw your McDonalds bag out the window if a cop is behind you? No. We have to catch them before we can cite them. We patrol the road. But if you dont throw it out in front of us, its difficult for us to do anything about it except to go back and clean it up. And thats what our inmates do. Thursday, the county will install 11 signs near the intersection reminding passersby that littering is illegal. Hopefully that will serve as a deterrent, said Daetz. We want to let truckers know youre allowed to park here, but take care of the area. According to Floridas litter laws, littering less than 15 pounds or 27 cubic feet is punishable by a $50 fine. Littering up to 500 pounds is a misdemeanor, and more than 500 pounds is a felony.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comDUMPYFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERBermont Road (County Road 74) has been widened at the intersection with State Road 31, so truckers can pull o and rest or check their truck.

The Sun /Wednesday, February 5, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Good day to all. Did you know steam-powered dredges vastly improved phosphate production on the Peace River? Dredges typically consisted of a barge and a 60 horsepower steam engine with an 8-inch centrifugal pump. Phosphate pebbles and sand were sucked from the river bottom, passed over a screen to separate the pebbles, and the remainder returned to the river. Pebbles were then diverted to barges alongside the dredge, transported to a drying facility for washing, and placed in raised bins. Once dry, the ore was reloaded to barges or train cars for transport to Punta Gorda. Mining reached such a peak that a railroad was built to haul processed ore from Hull to deeper water a few miles south at Liverpool. A spur line connected with the Florida Southern Railway system. At one point, eight companies mined the lower river: DeSoto Phosphate Mining Co., Arcadia Phosphate Co., Peace River Phosphate Co., Charlotte Harbor Phosphate Co., Gulf Phosphate Co., National Peace River Co., .S. Phosphate Co., and Boca Grande Phosphate Co. Being the time of socalled robber barons John Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, and Cornelius Vanderbilt, though, it wasnt long before someone realized the benets of consolidating the fertilizer business. Peter B. Bradley, president of Bradley Fertilizer Works out of Massachusetts, obtained controlling interest in the Peace River Phosphate Co. in December 1894. Included in the $1.7 million package were over 24,000 acres, dwellings, bins, dredges, barges, and a railroad. The corporate name was changed to the Peace River Phosphate Mining Co., and land along the river was purchased as far north as Bowling Green. In 1899, Bradley consolidated 22 mining companies and formed the American Agricultural Chemical Co. (AACC). In early 1902, a re destroyed Hulls drying bins and 7,000 tons of phosphate ore. Although new bins were built at Liverpool, managers realized the harbors depth prohibited large freighters, giving companies shipping out of Tampa a competitive edge. That caused AACC to cast its eyes on the Alaa, Manatee, and Gulf Coast Railroad (AM&G), which had proposed but failed to lay track from Lakeland to Gasparilla Island. The AACC purchased AM& Gs charter, changed the railroads name to Charlotte Harbor, and Northern, better known to locals as the cold, hungry, and naked, and completed a line from Liverpool to Boca Grande by mid-1907. Shipment of phosphate, though, did not begin until late 1909, after loading equipment was installed and the line extended north to Mulberry. Once the railroad was completed, Bradley and his stockholders decided to build a resort hotel. Albert Gilchrist, Punta Gordas favorite son, owned six blocks of Gasparilla Islands highest land. Bradley formed the Boca Grande Land Co., purchased Gilchrists land with stock in the Peace River Phosphate Mining Co., and by September 1911 had completed the 20-room Gasparilla Inn. By then, though, Peace River phosphate deposits were depleted and the industry moved north, ending Punta Gordas days as the worlds leading phosphate port. Visit Charlotte County History Collections online to view photographs of phosphate dredges on the Peace River, facilities at Hull and Liverpool, Albert Deweys tugs, George Brown, and Boca Grandes phosphate loading dock.
