LIFE STORIES

One bad night,

years of pain

even years ago, I spent a beautiful
June morning above the Intracoastal
Waterway and wrote a column about
the people who tend drawbridges.
-.. The bridge-tenders
\ liked their job. It
: \ didn't pay a lot, but it
l had perks: the view,
S the peace and quiet.
As it turned out,
though, it wasn't
,always so peaceful.
Two weeks after the
S column, I was called
Steve back to the bridge on
Manasota Key Road
BAUMANN in Englewood. What
COLUMNIST had happened was
this:
At around 11:30 p.m. on a Thursday
night, bridge tender Jerry Reed saw some
teenagers at the railing. Four boys and a
girl. Jumpers.
Two leapt off the bridge and into the
ICW. So Reed came out seeing that
bridge-jumping is illegal and told the
kids to stop. But they didn't run off, as kids
usually do.
"One guy got really upset," Reed told
me the day later. "I was getting ready to go
back to the building and that's when he hit
me.
Two boys beat him and left him bloody
and lying on the walkway. After they
walked off, one came back on a bicycle
and kicked Reed in the head. The bridge
tender ended up at the Venice hospital
with a broken jaw and a damaged left eye.
He was never able to work again.
As for the assailants, deputies thought
they knew who did it, but they lacked ev-
idence. Reed could never make a positive
ID from yearbook photos. The company
that operates the bridges offered a $1,000
reward, but nothing came of it.
So the case, such as it was, quickly went
cold.
Jerry Reed died at Englewood
Community Hospital last December at age
76. He had never fully recovered from his
injuries, never shook the headaches.
"He was in constant pain and his quality
of life was diminished, and any of the
things he liked to do he could no longer
do," longtime friend and companion Janet
Clark said last week.
Reed was from Oklahoma and moved
to Englewood in the 1950s. He worked at
a local screening company, then opened
JR's Cafe in the Lemon Bay Plaza. Clark
worked for him there and the two later
lived together for years.
She stopped by last week to say that a
memorial service would be held at 1 p.m.
Sunday at the Englewood Eagles Club on
Old Englewood Road.
"The service is just a formality, more or
less," she said. "It won't be long, but it's just
something that we should do for him."
She added, "He was a good man. He was
a very appreciative man and people liked
him because he was such a good person. I
just don't know how to say it."
Somewhere out there are a handful of
people no longer kids who knew
who did what to Reed that night. They
never came clean. They never paid for
their crime or had to apologize to Reed, his
family and friends.
Presumably, though, they still carry the
knowledge of their actions and, hopefully,
the weight of that knowledge increases
with time. Purgatory can be hell.
"People should know he suffered and
no one was..." Clark told me, unable to
complete her sentence.
"Do the kids who are now grown know
how much they hurt someone and how
much they affected his life, how much it
changed what he could and couldn't do?"
They made his life hellish, too.

Mud park's woes


County concerned about safety


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
EAST OF PUNTA GORDA Two
serious injuries over the weekend at
the Redneck Yacht Club are the latest
examples of why county officials are
taking a closer look at safety in regard
to future recreation projects.
However, there is not much they
can do about the popular mud park
located on Bermont Road east of


SPunta Gorda, where a
woman was stabbed and
another woman riding
an all-terrain vehicle
S was struck by a pickup
Saturday night.
"Redneck Yacht Club
has been around for
HESS about 10 years now," said
Shaun Cullinan, a planning and zoning
official with Charlotte County. "It was
a special exception in the agricultural


WhatIs coo


zoning district."
He said the county imposed about
a half a dozen "very basic" conditions
on the 800-acre mud park, such as
landscaping to protect the adjacent
properties and hours of operation.
"It was new to the county and new
to this area, so they did the best they
could back then," said Cullinan. "No
one knew it would be like this.... We've

County to consider

paintball play


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
GULF COVE Charlotte
County is considering al-
lowing weekend paintball
games on an undeveloped
132-acre park property in
Gulf Cove.
Members of the non-
mandatory Property
Owners Association of Gulf
Cove will learn tonight
about staging paintball
games in the county's un-
developed Myakka River
Park, located at Gallagher
Boulevard and Spire Street.
The property also borders
the Myakka River.
Mike Koening, county
parks and recreation
resource coordinator, said
Allstar Action Sports owner
Jim Senseman approached
the county about staging
games on county property.


PAINTBALL IN GULF
COVE MEETING
The Property Owners Associa-
tion of Gulf Cove will discuss Char-
lotte County allowing weekend
paintball games on an undevel-
oped property in Gulf Cove.
The POA meets 7 p.m. tonight
at the Hope Lutheran Church,
14200 Hopewell Ave., Gulf Cove.
If approved, the paintball
games will be limited from
9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday
and Sundays.
"This would be a recre-
ational opportunity for an
alternative sport," Koenig
said. Senseman would
have to enter into an
agreement with the county
like any other seasonal
vendor.

Foreclosures continue

downward trend


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER
New foreclosure filings for
the month of January are
drastically down from a year
ago, a sign that Southwest
Florida's housing market
continues its strong forward
momentum.
According to the Charlotte
County Clerk of Courts, the
number of new lis pendens
filed last month totaled 80
compared to 181 in January
2013. In December, Charlotte
County recorded 77.
A lis pendens is a notice of
legal action that typically be-
gins the foreclosure process.
The action puts the borrower
on notice that a lender may
move ahead with foreclosure
proceedings if the parties fail
to reach an agreement. Given
the current backlog of cases,
it can take up to two years for
a foreclosure to wind its way


through the court system.
At the height of the fore-
closure crisis between 2007
and 2009, the court system
was inundated with thou-
sands of files that resulted in
thousands of homes sold at
auction.
Now, banks are more
willing and have the
wherewithal to process
short sales rather than move
forward with an actual
foreclosure, said John Bockin,
president of the Punta
Gorda-Port Charlotte-North
Port Association of Realtors.
"It's amazing how little
(foreclosures) are out there,"
he said.
In the last 24 months, short
sales have become easier to
process with fewer homes
actually making it to the
auction block, he said.
A short sale is a real estate

Local author shares the love


By CAROL BRUYERE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Local author Dedeth
Ford's true personal
love story, "Life of Love
for Atema and Atepa,"
inspired a recent event
to raise funds for two
charities very close to
her heart.
Ford grew up in the
Philippines. Her small-
town farming family
was not wealthy. It was
a hard life. They planted
rice in a muddy field,
cooked their food using
firewood, washed their
clothes by hand, and had
no indoor plumbing.
With support from her
parents and lots of hard
work, Ford was able to
graduate from college in
1981. Her career began
in re-forestation and
managing her uncle's dry
goods business.
In 1987, Ford placed
her photo and informa-
tion in a magazine. Her
late husband, Patrick,
who lived in Colorado,

HOW TO HELP
If you missed the event, you
may still purchase copies of the
book, or donate to either charity
in honor of the author and her
late husband.
You may purchase a copy of
the book at Books-a-Million,
1825 Tamiami Trail, Port Char-
lotte, 941-629-0340, or online
at Amazon.com e-books.
If you would like a signed
copy, or would like to make
a donation to the charities,
please contact Dedeth Ford at
dedeth5132@gmail.com, or
www.dedethford.com.


was intrigued by her
profile and initiated a
long-distance penpal re-
lationship. Ford said she
"fell in love just reading
his letters."
"As our writing con-
tinued," Ford said, "our
relationship began to
grow."
Two people from oppo-
site sides of the earth with
contrasting cultures -
and a great age difference
- developed a unique
and strong relationship
simply by writing letters
to one another.
Patrick proposed, trav-
eled to the Philippines
in 1988, and brought his
new bride back to the
United States. The Fords,
and their daughter,
Phaedra, eventually end-
ed up in Port Charlotte,
where Dedeth works as
a dental assistant and
pursues her writing.
When Patrick (Atepa)
passed away Dedeth
(Atema) decided to honor
her late husband by
sharing their letters and
memories in her book,
and dedicate the profits
to Mahayag Elementary
School in her native
Philippines.
Sherry Mearns, charity
event organizer, said,
"Dedeth credits her
education with helping
her gain the skills and
confidence to become a
successful young wom-
an. That's one reason
she wants to help the
school, which is in need
of a clinic for its nearly
550 students and 14
teachers."
"In Patrick's letters,"


Ford said, "he told me
about his dreams of
someday helping those
children so that they
would be able to receive
medical care. Most of
the children in that
village have never even
seen a doctor or been to
a clinic. The deadly ty-
phoon in November has
exacerbated an already
desperate situation.
We should all keep the
people of the Philippines
in our prayers."
In addition to her
passion for helping in
the Philippines, Ford,
a proud pet owner
and animal lover, has
decided to add the
Charlotte County Animal
Welfare League to her
fundraising efforts. The
nonprofit organization
provides temporary
homes, medical services,
and caring attention to
countless dogs, cats and
other animals.
Ford held a special
book-signing event
Sunday at the Charlotte
County Cultural Center.
Attendees brought their
own books for Ford
to sign, or purchased
copies at the event.
The book-signing was
followed by dinner,
giveaways and enter-
tainment provided by
local singer/songwriter
Michael Hirst and his
wife, Donna.
"We have met our
financial goal to build
the clinic," Ford said.
"But funds are always
needed there, as well as
at the Animal Welfare
League."

the fair has been awarding
scholarships to students
since it began 26 years
ago. The scholarships
were traditionally awarded
for agricultural activities,
but more recently the fair
has sponsored visual and
performing arts.
Each of the students
awarded a scholarship
performed a piece for the
fair on Feb. 2.

School selected to send to
the competition, seven won
awards.
Her project involved

different solutions and then
testing them for sugar and
mineral content.
According to the press
release, Eleanor's project
description concluded
"seawater grown crops...
have the highest nutritional
content a factor that
could have a critical impact
when growing crops in de-
veloping world countries."
In addition to the first
place, Eleanor received a
four-year FGCU scholarship
and two specialty awards:
the Stockholm Junior
Water Prize from the Water
Environment Federation,
and the Argonauta Award

Eleanor will go on to
represent her school
and Charlotte County

Engineering Fair of Florida
on April 8.

Tarpon Robotics
Team advances
The Charlotte High
School robotics team
went to a competition at
Embry Riddle Aeronautical
University at Daytona Beach


and fared well enough to
qualify for a semi-national
competition in Texas, ac-
cording to a press release for
Charlotte County Schools.
The competition was
hosted by FIRST Tech
Challenge, a robotics
competition for high school
students. Robotics teams
build a robot of their own
design and program them
to compete in challenges.
Charlotte High was one
of 24 teams in a bracketed
competition. The team was
competing for their second
year and came into the
competition ranked 16th
in the state. However, after
five wins and one loss, the
team placed fourth in the
tournament and qualified
for the next level of compe-
tition in San Antonio from
Feb. 26 to 28.
The team also took home
the "Promote Award,"
for creating the most
compelling promotional
video celebrating science,
technology, engineering and
math.
The Tarpon Robotics
Team is currently seeking
sponsors to help fund their
trip to the semi-national
competition. For more
information about sponsor-
ship, contact Charlotte High
School at 941-575-5450.

Edison Collegiate
High School helps a
child with cancer
Students at Edison
Collegiate High School
Charlotte raised money to
help a 4-year-old who has
cancer.
A press release from the
school said the effort was
part of the ECHS Charlotte
Charity Challenge, an
annual event that encourag-
es students to help people
in need.
Usually, each homeroom
class chooses a cause, but
this year, the entire school
focused it's efforts on Kai
Culver, who was diagnosed
with Burkitt's lymphoma, a
fast-growing cancer.
Over the course of the
Charity Challenge, the
students were able to raise
over $1,200.
"Our gratitude will never
be fully expressed. Thank
you to the students, faculty
and staff at ECHS," said
Renee Culver, Kai's mother,
according to the release.

A closer look at a historic speech


By PAUL FALLON
SUN CORRESPONDENT

PUNTA GORDA-
Professor Tonia East
typically discusses the
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr.'s iconic "I Have
a Dream" speech during
her speech class every
year.
However, this year
she opted to open the
discussion to all students
at Edison State College
during Black History
Month so everyone could
find out why the speech
is considered one of
the most powerful ever
delivered.
King delivered the
speech on the steps of the
Lincoln Memorial in the
summer of 1963, and it
still resonates with people
today over a half-century
later, East said.
East, a speech professor
at the college, believes
King's oratory is one of
the greatest speeches of
all time.
The speech, given
during the March on
Washington, D.C., called


for an end to racism in
the U.S.
East didn't just touch
on the speech's historic
significance. She also
discussed some of the
aspects of what made the
speech so great.
"As a professor, I
really want the students
to take away a greater
understanding of speech
and what makes a great
speaker," she said.
However, East added
that she also wanted to
impart the historical con-
text in which the speech
was given.
"As a college student,
they should have a
general knowledge of our
history," she said. "There
just are some things that
you should know as an
educated person."
Little known is that
King improvised the "I
Have a Dream" portion of
the speech after talking
to famous American
gospel singer Mahalia
Jackson.
Jackson performed
before King took to the
podium to address one of


the largest crowds to ever
gather on the National
Mall.
"I didn't know about
how that part was
improvised," said student
Stefania Adjei.
Adjei, who is obtaining
her associate degree from
the school, is currently
taking a public speaking
class at the college. She
believes watching the
speech, and discussing
it with the students
and East, will help her
become a better public
speaker.
"I think I learned about
what makes a good
speech" Adjei, 20, of Port
Charlotte, said.
East pointed out that
King, a Baptist minister,
was a practiced orator
who utilized tools like
strong metaphors and
repetition to get his
message across. King also
drew comparisons to the
struggles of the 1950s and
1960s to the trials black
men and women endured
in the 1800s.
He brought up the
fact that his speech,


given on the steps of the
Lincoln Memorial, was
taking place on "hallowed
ground."
Jonathan Rivera, 31,
was impressed with the
presentation. Rivera, a
business administration
student at the college,
will be called upon often
to speak publicly in his
chosen profession, he
said.
He believes speech
classes, along with
watching good examples
of the craft, will help him
become a better public
speaker.
Rivera had also never
before seen the "I Have
a Dream" speech from
beginning to end.
"People always hear
about the speech, and
they may have seen parts
of it, but a lot of people
probably haven't really
seen it," he said.
East believes that
the presentation was a
successful one, and that
she will likely continue to
open the discussion to all
students in the years to
come.

speakers.

There have been over

six ambulances were sent

Charlotte County

Charlotte State Bank & Trust steps up fraud fight


By PAUL FALLON
SUN CORRESPONDENT

In order to better
protect its customers,
Charlotte State Bank &
Trust recently introduced
a debit card alert system
to combat fraud.
And the bank isn't the
only financial institution
offering a service that
allows customers to
sign up for text message
alerts notifying them of
purchases made using
their debit card, said Ken
O'Donnell, executive vice
president and Florida
market president for
Busey Bank.
"A lot of banks have
gone to text message
alerts as an additional


service to their clients,"
O'Donnell said.
The Charlotte State
Bank & Trust system has
recently been rolled out
to the public. It is free to
all bank customers, said
Don Martin, marketing
director.
Customers can sign
up for different levels of
service.
"We encourage all of
our customers to sign up
for this," Martin said.
One level: Customers
can sign up to be notified
of a debit card purchase.
The system can also alert
customers if someone uses
the card and signs a receipt
for a credit purchase.
"This is real time,
so customers get their


notifications immediate-
ly," Martin said. "There
isn't a delay."
Customers can also
name their checking ac-
counts so they know which
one is being accessed
when the text message
notification is sent.
This is simply a pro-
active step taken by the
company to protect its
customers.
"We do whatever
we can to protect our
customers from fraud,"
he said. "We take our job
very seriously."
The system was rolled
out about three weeks
ago and customers can
sign up for the service at
the bank branch.
Charlotte State Bank


& Trust isn't the only
financial institution
taking steps to prevent
debit card fraud.
Busey Bank has had a
system notifying customers
of transactions via text
message in place for sever-
al weeks, O'Donnell said.
The bank's system can
notify customers when
their account balance
drops below a certain
point and it can also send
the individual their last
five transactions via text
message, he said.
"This is another way to
protect our customers,"
O'Donnell said. "And the
customers seem to be
embracing this."
The service will also
allow the customer to set


up a time and day when
they wish to have their
transactions texted to
their phone, he said.
"If they want their
transactions sent to their
phone every Friday at 3 in
the afternoon, we can set
it up so they get their last
five transactions sent to
their phone every Friday
at 3 in the afternoon,"
O'Donnell added.
Wells Fargo will
also send alerts about
transactions to three
email addresses and one
mobile device, said Kris
Dahl, communications
consultant.
"These alerts can notify
customers of a variety of
account activity, includ-
ing when their balance is


above or below a certain
amount, when a purchase
exceeds a certain amount
or when their daily ATM
withdrawals and debit
card purchases exceed
a certain amount,"
Dahl said in a written
statement.
The representatives
from all three banks
stressed that customers
can be one of the best
weapons in the war
against fraud.
Customers should
always keep a close eye
on their account balances
and report suspicious
activity immediately,
O'Donnell said.
"The earlier we can be
informed the better it is
for everyone," he said.


For petter or for worse: Paws and Claws to host pet weddings


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER

Do your pets want
to get married for
Valentine's Day?
Or are they just flirting
with the idea?
Owners can find out
by entering their pet
couples into the "lovers
lane" pet couple contest,
where pairs of pets can
compete to be married
on the spot. Spectators
are welcome, too,
because they will vote
to choose the pair of
dogs that love each other
most.
"There's certain dogs
that just love each other,"
said Lynda LaPlante,
owner of PAC Paws
and Claws a pet store
that carries specialty
health items and orga-
nizes pet events like this
one.
"The actual lovers
lane runway show is the
highlight," LaPlante said.
"The wedding is kind of
the icing on the cake."
The event will take
place at 2 p.m. Saturday
at PAC, 395 W Dearborn
St., Englewood.
LaPlante said the con-
testants are usually four
or five dog couples, but
"cats are invited too. You
never know it could be
a dog and a cat."
The runway contest
will take place on an
18-foot elevated platform,
LaPlante said, which
pet couples walk down
together, making three
stops. At the first stop, the
owner introduces each of
the pets. At the second,
the pet couple needs to
"prove they're in love."
The owner will give the
pets a treat or toy to share

that will produce a show
of affection. At the end of
the runway, the third stop,
the owners will explain
why their pet couple love
each other most.
After the runway show,
the audience will vote on
the couple that will get
married.
People seem to get a
kick out of the wedding
ceremony, too, which
will be performed by
LaPlante's brother,
Donny.
"It's the same vows,
but the promises are

Environmental
center to open
new trail
The Charlotte Harbor
Environmental Center
will dedicate and open a
new trail at 10 a.m. Feb. 21
at the Alligator Creek
Preserve, 10941 Burnt
Store Road, Punta Gorda.
This trail was developed
using the old-fashioned
method of sweat and mus-
cle. Volunteers and staff
using axes, clippers, cut-
ters and other hand tools
carved the Chet Lewis Trail
through saw palmetto
thickets, pine flatwoods
and underbrush.
This trail will be
dedicated to deceased
volunteer Chet Lewis.
Lewis became a volunteer
for CHEC before any
buildings or trails were
found on the site. He was
responsible for developing
the trail system at Alligator
Creek, and developed and
maintained its trails for
many, many years.
After the formal
dedication and grand
opening, guides will take

this case, it will include
vows promising things
like sharing toys and
treats.
"We (put) bling

I OUR VIEW

Expanding

trail system

in the region

OUR POSITION: North Port
needs a link to the region's bike
trail system.
udos to local bicycle
advocates who are cam-
paigning for a low-cost,
low-impact system of trails
that will improve recreational
options, provide more access to
conservation lands and create
new connections between com-
munities in our region.
It's an outstanding grassroots
effort and one that has received
support and encouragement,
thankfully, from local govern-
ments. When it comes to parks
and trails, our position has
always been straightforward:
You can't have too much of a
good thing. In this case, more is
clearly better.
The latest trail proposal is
relatively modest. It draws
on ideas included in Sarasota
County's Trails Master Plan.
Two Venice residents Steve
Christian and Gregory Vine
- have taken lead roles in
the local campaign to create a
32.5-mile bike loop on existing
paved and unpaved surfaces in
Venice and North Port.
There are two key segments.
The first would create
a connection through the
Myakkahatchee Creek
Environmental Park in North
Port to an unpaved powerline
road in the Carlton Ranch-
Carlton Preserve tracts. A series
of roads south and west would
take bikers to the Legacy Trail
in Nokomis. From there, they
might head north to Sarasota
or south into Venice and onto
the 10-mile Venetian Waterway
Park Trail.
In the second segment of the
proposed loop, bikers could
travel on paved roads into
Deer Prairie Creek Preserve,
another of the properties set
aside in Sarasota County's
Environmentally Sensitive
Lands Protection Program.
Bikers could ride a trail to U.S.
41 and take a series of roads
back through North Port to the
Myakkahatchee Creek Park.
Loop completed.
Christian and Vine figure
two bridges are needed to
create the loop. The first is at
the city park, the second in
Deer Prairie Creek. The good
news is that North Port already
has designated $200,000 for
the Myakkahatchee bridge;
Sarasota County is now looking
for funds to share project costs.
The second bridge will come
later, presumably.
We wholeheartedly support
this and other efforts to create
better trail networks through-
out the region. Not only would
this trail connect communi-
ties, it would create access
from North Port to the vast
preserved lands in Sarasota
County. It would enhance
options for eco-tourism and
outdoor recreation.
We're excited to see the
system grow.
Punta Gorda Pathways now
includes 18 miles of hiking and
biking trails. The Cape Haze-
Pioneer Trail runs eight miles
parallel to Gasparilla Road on
Cape Haze. Sarasota County
is investigating the possibility
of extending the Legacy Trail
from Palmer Ranch to down-
town Sarasota. And another
of Christian's proposals would
create an off-road link from
North Port through the Myakka
State Forest to Englewood.
The more the better. Years
from now, we expect to see safe
trail links from Punta Gorda
north to Sarasota, from North
Port west to Englewood. To get
it done will take the continued
efforts of local volunteers, as


well as the support of local
governments. We have no
doubt these trails will become
signature assets of our region.

LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Thanks from
Wildlife Center

Editor:
The volunteers, staff and
Board of Directors at Peace
River Wildlife Center would
like to extend a heartfelt "thank
you" to Beyond Ourselves, a
PGI Civic Association commu-
nity service organization.
Throughout the year this
dedicated group of volunteers
collect "wish list" items and
aluminum cans to help us
continue our mission of caring
for Florida's native wildlife.
Recently, Beyond Ourselves
organized and hosted an amaz-
ing fundraiser, "Fashionable
Visits to Upton Abbey," a
fashion show featuring vintage
creations. The event was
first-class and fun from start to
finish.
Thank you, again, to all the
selfless, hard-working individ-
uals, business sponsors and
raffle basket donors who made
this show such a success.

Sunshine Lake may
still be unclean

Editor:
A recent letter to the edi-
tor makes me wonder how
much damage those toxins in
Sunshine Lake have caused.
The writer must have been
drinking the water! Is this
lake and waterway clean of all
algae? Really? If not completely
free of algae, regrowth will burst
forth. Have these bodies of
water been retested by Atkins,
who claimed that this was the
worst they'd seen?
This letter writer appeared
to indicate that the problem
has been alleviated, yet no one
even knows what is causing
this toxic cyanobacteria to
grow, nor has the county fixed
the water level problem which
may have prevented this
disaster years ago for a fraction
of the price and without the
suffering. The sewer pipes and
the malfunctioning lift station
haven't been replaced. It seems
the commissioners are too busy
spending millions on destroy-
ing another body of water.
The letter writer claims that
nobody knew how much debris
was in the water. The county
administration should have
found out how much debris
existed before taking bids.

Seabees did not
massacre women

Editor:
Let's set the record straight.
U.S. Navy Seabees have
never and will never (I hope)
massacre women and children.
The two-part article that ap-
peared in the Jan. 27 and Feb. 3
Sun newspaper is totally false.
All the events listed are totally
incorrect.
First off, Mobile Construction
Reserve Battalion 12 was
inactive during the dates
referred to. Next, Navy Seabees
are U.S. Navy, and did not
attend Marine boot camp. Navy
mobile construction battalions
do not have tanks. Nor are they
assigned the weapons referred
to.
Navy Seabees have a proud
tradition of providing con-
struction support to all other


for the fabricated story. He's
looking for financial assistance.
Whatever you do, do not give
this imposter anything.

Signs are needed
on Shreve Street

Editor:
I laud the City Council for at-
tempting to calm the traffic on
Shreve, Olympia and Marion
streets.
I live on the corner and have
seen firsthand how drivers
abuse this intersection and how
many people have been seri-
ously injured or died. I also hear
and see the near-misses that
occur daily. So Councilwoman
Carolyn Freeland should
re-think her opinion and not
just move on. People are getting
hurt on the corner of Shreve
and Olympia and we must do
something about it.
My suggestions are to add
signs on Shreve (Marion and
Olympia) saying "Cross Traffic
Does not Stop." I have seen
folks pull up to that stop sign.
look at oncoming traffic as
if they are going to stop too,
and then proceed into the
intersection causing a crash.
That happens a lot at this
intersection.
Traffic along Olympia and
Shreve moves at a swift pace
and must be slowed down.
Never as many accidents when
a Punta Gorda squad car with
radar sits on the side of the road.
My last suggestion is a traffic
light. That seems like the only
thing that will really slow them
down and make us all a little
safer.
Slow down: You're in Punta
Gorda.
James T. Merrick
Punta Gorda


My letter is in response to,
"Typecasting and proud of
it," regarding The Affordable
Care Act and part-time
employment.
I agree that there will always
be people who will take advan-
tage and not help themselves.
However, it is unfair to typecast
everyone who is employed
part time. In particular, I am
referring to the older worker
that has been laid off.
It is not unusual for the older
worker to have a difficult time
finding full-time employment
and many have had to accept a
part-time job (if they can find
one). This situation is especial-
ly difficult for the older worker
who has not reached age 65 to
qualify for Medicare. There is
plenty of data on this.

Tired, angry,
discouraged

Editor:
If we are going to pay
unemployment, subsidize
health insurance, provide
food stamps and give earned
income tax credits to the poor
folks, and then we are going to
make it financially beneficial
to 2.3 million middle-class
workers to cut back to part
time, why in the world are the
rest of us working our butts
off?
It is absolutely beyond com-
prehension that there are still
a few of us who have enough
pride and self-respect to try
to support ourselves and our
families. Frankly, I'm tired,
angry and discouraged.
I'm tired. Tired of beating
myself up while I see capable
people wandering the streets.
I'm angry that my government
thinks that for some reason
I am responsible for those
whom the government has
hooked on being dependent.
And I am discouraged that
there seems to be no hope of
things getting any better.

'Super speeder'
pays extra fine?

Editor:
Have you or any of your
readers ever been exposed
to what we call "legitimate
extortion?"
I state my case: On Oct. 30
my husband was issued (and
deserved) a speeding ticket
in Hihara, Ga. The officer,
a most polite and smiling
individual, did not succumb
to my husband's plea of, "I've
been driving for 60 years and
this is the first ticket I've ever
received. And please note on
my Florida license that I am
listed as a 'safe driver.'"
According to the instruc-
tions on the citation, we
called the Hihara Municipal
Court a week later and was
told the fine for going 83 miles
per hour in a 70 mph area
was $225. While we thought
this was somewhat exorbitant,
we paid the fine. End of story,
right? No!
The last week in January
we received a notice from
the state of Georgia stating
that since my husband is
considered a "super speeder,"
an additional $200 must be
mailed by May 1, 2014, or his
license would be revoked.
Is this considered "double
dipping," or, again, legitimate
extortion or is it just a plain
rip-off?

My 'distressed baby' and AOLs bottom line


ate last week, Tim
Armstrong, the chief
executive officer of
AOL, landed himself in a
media firestorm when he
held a town hall with em-
ployees to explain why he
was paring their retirement
benefits. After initially
blaming Obamacare for
driving up the company's
health care costs, he point-
ed the finger at an unlikely
target: babies.
Specifically, my baby.
"Two things that hap-
pened in 2012," Armstrong
said. "We had two AOL-ers
that had distressed babies
that were born that we
paid a million dollars each
to make sure those babies
were OK in general. And
those are the things that
add up into our benefits
cost. So when we had the
final decision about what
benefits to cut because
of the increased health
care costs, we made the
decision, and I made
the decision, to basically
change the 401 (k) plan."
Within hours, that quote
was all over the Internet.
On Friday, Armstrong's
logic was the subject of
lengthy discussions on
CNN, MSNBC and other
outlets. Mothers' advocates
scolded him for gross in-
sensitivity. Lawyers debated
whether he had violated
his employees' privacy.
Health care experts noted
that his accounting of these
"million-dollar babies"
seemed, at best, fuzzy.
The phrase "distressed
babies" became practically
an inside joke, as in, "How
many distressed babies
does AOL pay this guy?" A
few AOL employees made
cracks like this: "I swear I
didn't have any babies in
2012. Don't hate me for
messing up your 401 (k)."
For the record: It was
me. I don't work for AOL;
my husband does. One of
those "distressed babies"
was our daughter. We
pay our premiums for a
family health plan through
AOL, which is why we had
coverage on the morning


Deanna Fei
Slate.com


I woke up in acute pain,
only five months into what
had been a completely
smooth pregnancy.
Late Saturday, Armstrong
finally issued an apology in
an email to employees: "On
a personal note, I made a
mistake and I apologize for
my comments last week
at the town hall when I
mentioned specific health
care examples." He also
announced that he would
restore the old retirement
savings plan. This is com-
mendable, but the damage
to my family had already
been done.

Life vs. Costs
Here is how we suppos-
edly became a drain on
AOL's coffers. On Oct. 9,
2012, when I woke up in
pain, my husband was at
the airport about to board
a flight for a work trip. I
was home alone with our
1-year-old son and barely
able to comprehend that
I could be in labor. By
the time I arrived at the
hospital, my husband a
few minutes behind, I was
fully dilated and my baby's
heartbeat was slowing.
Within 20 minutes, my
daughter was delivered
via emergency Cesarean,
resuscitated and placed in
the neonatal intensive care
unit.
She weighed 1 pound,
9 ounces. Her skin was
reddish-purple, bloody
and bruised all over. One
doctor, visibly shaken, de-
scribed it as "gelatinous." I
couldn't hold my daughter
or nurse her or hear her
cries, which were silenced
by the ventilator. Without
it, she couldn't breathe.
That day, we were told
that she had roughly a
one-third chance of dying
before we could bring her
home. That she might not
survive one month or one


week or one day. She also
had at least a one-third
chance of being severely
disabled, unable to ever
lead an independent life.
As shell-shocked and
stricken as we were, my
husband and I were not
oblivious to the staggering
tolls, emotional and
financial, attached to a
baby like ours. Watching
her tiny, battered body
struggle to carry out the
simplest functions, we
couldn't help wondering at
what point the level of her
suffering might outweigh
the imperative to keep her
alive at all costs.
For longer than I can
bear to remember, we were
too terrified to name her,
to know her, to love her.
In my lowest moments -
when she suffered a brain
hemorrhage, when her
right lung collapsed, when
she stopped breathing
altogether one morning
- I found myself wishing
that I could simply mourn
her loss and go home to
take care of my strapping,
exuberant, fat-cheeked son.

An Amazing Fight
But the neonatolo-
gists also described my
daughter as "feisty" and
"amazing." And over the
next weeks, she fought for
every minute of her young
life, as did her doctors and
nurses, and we could only
strive to do the same.
My daughter had to
spend three months in
the neonatal intensive
care unit (NICU), depen-
dent on many high-tech
medical apparatuses and
round-the-clock care. She
endured more procedures
than I can count.
Some commentators
have questioned the
implausibility of "mil-
lion-dollar babies." I have
no expertise in health care
costs, but I have a 3-inch
thick folder of hospital
bills that range from a
few dollars to the high six
figures (before insurance
adjustments). So even


though it's unlikely that
AOL directly paid out those
sums, I don't take issue
with Armstrong's number.
I take issue with how he
reduced my daughter to a
"distressed baby" who cost
the company too much
money. How he blamed
the saving of her life for
his decision to scale back
employee benefits. How he
exposed the most searing
experience of our lives, one
that my husband and I still
struggle to discuss with
anyone but each other,
for no other purpose than
an absurd justification for
corporate cost-cutting.

Failed as Mother?
On Thursday, within
minutes of Armstrong's
utterance, my husband be-
gan fielding questions from
colleagues: Wasn't the CEO
talking about his baby? He
struggled to grasp that the
baby behind the headlines
was our daughter.
At home with our
daughter, I found myself
again unable to look at
her without recalling her
clinging to life support.
Since her arrival, I've rarely
been free from some form
of torment over her pre-
mature birth. The months
of pumping breast milk for
a baby who might not live
to drink it. The anxieties
about every milestone:
Will she smile? Will she lift
her head? Will she crawl,
talk, sing? The torturous
thoughts of what I might
have done wrong during
my brief pregnancy, how
I might have failed her as
her mother.
Because the day of her
birth was the furthest thing
from a happy event, be-
cause so many of her first
days were lived under the
specter of death, I've never
had the luxury of taking
her presence for granted.
Every time she wakes
with a dazzling smile and
goes to sleep with her soft
head against my shoulder
feels like a wonder. It can
be a struggle to set aside


my lingering trauma
amid the daily realities of
coordinating her care to
simply celebrate the fierce,
beautiful girl who has
completed our family.
All of which made
the implication from
Armstrong that the saving
of her life was an extrav-
agant option, an oversize
burden on the company
bottom line, feel like a cru-
el violation, no less brutal
for the ludicrousness of his
contention.

'Call Out Cancer?'
Let's set aside the fact
that Armstrong who
took home $12 million
in pay in 2012 felt the
need to announce a cut in
employee benefits on the
very day that he touted
the best quarterly earnings
in years. For me and my
husband who have been
genuinely grateful for AOL's
benefits, which are actually
quite generous the hard-
est thing to bear has been
the whiff of judgment in
Armstrong's statement, as if
we selfishly gobbled up an
obscenely large slice of the
collective health care pie.
Yes, we had a preemie
in intensive care. This was
certainly not our intention.
While he's at it, why not
call out the women who
got cancer? The parents of
kids with asthma? These
rank among the nation's
most expensive medical
conditions. Would anyone
dare to single out these
people for simply availing
themselves of their health
benefits?
Once the blowback
started, Armstrong issued
an internal memo not
an apology that sought
to clarify how he had
"mentioned high-risk
pregnancy as just one of
many examples of how our
company supports families
when they are in need."
Then he urged employees,
"Let's move forward
together as a team."
But there was nothing
high-risk about my


pregnancy. I never had
a single risk factor for a
preterm birth, let alone
one as extreme as this
one. Until the morning I
woke up in labor, every
exam indicated that our
daughter was perfectly
healthy. In fact, had signs of
trouble emerged, such as
bleeding or pre-eclampsia,
the doctors would have
had the chance to mitigate
the danger, administering
steroids to speed up her
lung development or
hormones to delay labor.
Instead, even with the best
medical care available,
we had no warnings,
and we will never have
an explanation for what
went wrong. This is why
the head neonatologist
referred matter-of-factly
to our daughter's birth as
"catastrophic."
In other words, we
experienced exactly the
kind of unforeseeable,
unpreventable medical
crisis that any health plan
is supposed to cover. Isn't
that the whole point of
health insurance?

The Miracle Baby
These days, at the
age of 1, my daughter is
nothing short of a mir-
acle, which is to say, she
appears much like any
healthy baby. This past
week has been eventful for
her. Right around when
Tim Armstrong might
have been preparing for
that conference call, she
took her first steps, two
tiny steps, before plopping
down and demanding to
be hugged for her efforts.
Our daughter has
already overcome more
setbacks than most of
us have endured in the
span of our lives. Having
her very existence used
as a scapegoat for cutting
corporate benefits was one
indignity too many.

Americans learn to succeed by learning from failure


merica succeeds
because Americans
fail and forgive.
That's the intriguing mes-
sage or part of it of
Megan McArdle's new book
"The Up Side of Down:
Why FailingWell Is the Key
to Success."
McArdle, a Bloomberg
blogger and columnist,
stands out among eco-
nomic writers, and not
just because she's the only
woman among them
who is 6 feet 2 inches.
She combines a shrewd
knowledge of economics
and practical experience
with a writing style that
every so often segues into
comedy monologue.
Americans fail a lot, she
argues. Most new business-
es fail. Most predictions are
wrong. As the screenwriter
William Goldman wrote
about Hollywood, "Nobody
knows anything."
And attempts to guard
against failure can result
in greater failures later on.
Children prevented from
roughhousing at recess
may engage in riskier
behavior later. Antibiotic


Michael
Barone


overuse makes bacteria re-
sistant to antibiotics, which
then don't work when you
really need them.
But good judgment
comes from experience.
And experience comes
from bad judgment -
from failures. The key
question is how you re-
spond, whether you learn
from failure and rebound.
Drawing from pre-
history, McArdle contrasts
farmers and foragers, the
hunter-gatherers who lived
before the development of
agriculture.
Foragers tend to share
success with neighbors, in
the expectation that others
will share later. They see
success as the result of luck
- the hunter who hap-
pens to spy a particularly


vulnerable mammoth.
Farmers tend to share
success only with family
members. They see success
- a plenteous harvest -
as the result of their own
families' hard work and
conscientiousness. They
see no reason to share it
with the lazy and feckless.
Americans, in McArdle's
view, have values like those
of farmers. Much more
than Europeans, they
believe that there is a con-
nection between effort and
reward. Those who have
earned more deserve it.
Europeans tend to
believe that success comes
mostly from luck. They
enlist government to, in
President Obama's words
to Joe the Plumber, "spread
the wealth around."
But in some respects,
Americans behave like
foragers. They're often
ready to forgive failures.
High-tech entrepreneurs
like to hire people whose
businesses failed because it
shows a willingness to take
chances.
The U.S., McArdle
points out, has the most


accessible bankruptcy
laws in the world. You
can slough off your debts
(except for student loans)
relatively easily. In suppos-
edly progressive Denmark,
they hang over you for life.
The result is that,
contrary to E Scott
Fitzgerald's adage, there are
many, many second acts in
American life.
Americans also, though
McArdle doesn't mention
this, donate far more to
charity than Europeans
do. Great philanthropists
have created beneficial
institutions Andrew
Carnegie's libraries, John
D. Rockefeller's research
medical schools, many do-
nors' universities- which
Europe can't match.
McArdle mostly ignores
religion, but this blend of
farmer property-owning
and forager sharing is in
line with Christian teach-
ing. There is such a thing
as sin, and it should be
penalized. But there is also
the possibility of forgive-
ness and redemption and
a duty to share in your own
way.


Though not technically
part of the millennial gen-
eration (those bom after
1980), McArdle presents
a Millennials' view of the
world.
Sudden macroeconomic
shifts can result in months
of soul-deadening unem-
ployment (she was working
in IT just as the dot-comn
bubble burst).
The future is wildly
unpredictable, failure is
frequent, success seem-
ingly serendipitous (her
freelance blogging got
her a job blogging at the
Economist).
Her advice is to avoid
enterprises that are in
long-term decline, such as
General Motors starting in
the 1970s. In business and
public policy, try to learn
from well-conducted ex-
periments -but recognize
that successful trials can't
always be replicated on a
large scale.
Don't rush to conclude
that disasters like the 2008
financial crash are the
result of conspiracy or the
errors of one easily identi-
fied group of malefactors.


Bubbles happen in any free
market economy and are
hard to identify until they
burst.
"The world is an increas-
ingly insecure place," she
writes, "and there is no way
to make it less risky."
The best way ahead
is to admit mistakes
quickly, understand that
you may well fail, but
you can usually rebound
and punish rule-breaking
promptly and consistently
but lightly.
This book about people
who fail is also a book
about how a nation
succeeds. The 'American
Bourgeois Synthesis,"
McArdle writes, is good
but not perfect, promoting
entrepreneurship but
over-penalizing some
mistakes.
Americans and
America can succeed,
but only if people learn
from their failures.

Mobile massage


therapist eases your pain


By ERIN MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

ENGLEWOOD -In
Brian Tucker's line of work,
he has rubbed shoulders
with former presidents,
Hollywood celebrities and
NFL players. To be precise,
he has rubbed the muscles
in their shoulders, along
their spines and down their
legs.
As a licensed massage
therapist, Tucker has
carried a lofty clientele at
prestigious locations in
Florida. Now he's bringing
his massage table or chair
directly to the client with
his new business, Body
Kneads Mobile Massage,
in Englewood. Available
for 30-, 60- or 90-minute
massages, Tucker can also
bring his chair to an office
setting, offering 10- to
15-minute massages for a
group of employees.
"Bodybuilding got me
into massage therapy,"
Tucker said, while research-
ing the most effective
exercises for weightlifting.
A pinched nerve in
his neck landed him in a
chiropractor's office, where
he further became interest-
ed in healing at its source
rather than taking excess
anti-inflammatories.
Studying anatomy and
physiology at the Florida
College of Natural Health,
Tucker learned more about
the action, insertion and
origin of the body's more
than 600 muscles. After
getting licensed in Florida,
he first practiced at a
chiropractor's office easing
car accident victims with
trigger point therapy and
positional release. Trigger
points are knots in the
muscles that can cause pain
at the spot or it can radiate
to another part of the body.
By identifying and releasing
the trigger points through
massage, Tucker has eased
clients with everything
from migraines to a frozen
shoulder.
Because pain from a
trigger point can be referred
to another part of the body,


SUN PHOTO BY ERIN MOORE
Licensed massage therapist, Brian Tucker once worked on celeb-
rities at Walt Disney World Resort and at the Gasparilla Inn Spa
on Boca Grande. Now he's hit the road in Englewood with Body
Kneads Mobile Massage.


Tucker begins by looking for
the source of the problem.
"When someone has
knee pain, the first thing I
work on are their hips," he
said. "If something is tight,
it is going to put pressure
somewhere else."
Tight hamstrings can
cause lower back pain by
pulling the pelvic girdle.
"Every client I see, I tell
them you need to stretch,"
Tucker said. "If you are
sitting in a chair all day, get
up and touch your toes.
It doesn't take much to
stretch."
Warming up the muscle
first with some quick knee
lifts, jogging in place or even
a warm shower prepares
the body for stretching. He
specializes in deep-tissue
massage and trigger-point
therapy. Using a Swedish
massage to warm up and
relax the muscles, Tucker
works to release trigger
points allowing him to go
deeper into the overlapping
muscles.
"I also do a little traction-
ing so people feel taller and
more opened up when they
are done," he said.


Tucker honed his
personal technique working
at the Grand Floridian Spa
at the Walt DisneyWorld
Resort. There, he would
massage guests of the resort
as well as celebrities like
Carrie Fisher, Tony Danza,
Thurman Thomas and Kurt
Warner.
"Thurman Thomas didn't
have any knots or trigger
points because he did yoga
seven days a week," Tucker
said.
Returning to the
Englewood area, Tucker
worked at the Gasparilla Inn
Spa on Boca Grande. His
clientele included former
presidents George W Bush
and George H.W Bush.
Tucker once received pres-
idential cufflinks as a gift
from President George H.W
Bush and has a Christmas
card from Barbara Bush.
Clients can schedule a
Swedish massage, deep
tissue massage, trigger
point therapy or myofascial
release, a type of soft tissue
massage. To reach Body
Kneads Mobile Massage,
call 941-855-0779 or visit
him on Facebook.

Militant bomb backfires

21 die in al-Qaida breakaway group training camp


BySAMEER N.YACOUB
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
BAGHDAD-An
instructor teaching his
militant recruits how to
make car bombs acci-
dentally set off explo-
sives in his demonstra-
tion Monday, killing 21
of them in a huge blast
that alerted authorities
to the existence of the
rural training camp in
an orchard north of
Baghdad. Nearly two
dozen people were
arrested, including


wounded insurgents
trying to hobble away
from the scene.
The fatal goof by the
al-Qaida breakaway
group that dominates
the Sunni insurgency
in Iraq happened on
the same day that the
speaker of the Iraqi
parliament, a promi-
nent Sunni whom the
militants consider a
traitor, escaped unhurt
from a roadside bomb
attack on his motor-
cade in the northern
city of Mosul.


Nevertheless, the
events underscored the
determination of the
insurgents to rebuild
and regain the strength
they enjoyed in Iraq
at the height of the
war until U.S.-backed
Sunni tribesmen
turned against them.
The militants are
currently battling
for control of mainly
Sunni areas of western
Iraq in a key test of the

Military sex crimes records sought

WASHINGTON -
The Pentagon is com-

Prosecutors rest in trial of man who shot teen


JACKSONVILLE (AP) -
Prosecutors rested their
case Monday in the trial
of a Florida man charged
with killing a teen
after an argument over
loud music outside a
Jacksonville convenience
store.
Prosecutors called an
associate medical exam-
iner as their last witness
in direct testimony in the
first-degree murder trial
of Michael Dunn, who is
pleading not guilty. He
said he acted in self-de-
fense when he fatally
shot Jordan Davis, 17, of
Marietta, Ga., outside the
store in Jacksonville in
November 2012.
According to authori-
ties, an argument began


after the 47-year-old
Dunn told Davis and
his friends to turn the
music down they were
listening to in an SUV
outside the store. One of
Davis' friends lowered
the volume, but Davis
then told him to turn it
back up.
Officials say Dunn
became enraged and
he and Davis began
arguing. Dunn, who had
a concealed weapons
permit, pulled a 9 mm
handgun from the glove
compartment of his car,
according to an affidavit,
and fired shots into the
SUV. Nine bullet holes
were found in the car.
Associate medical
examiner Stacey Simons


testified Monday that the
first bullet that hit Davis
in the abdomen likely
killed him. The bullet
went from his lower
right abdomen, into his
diaphragm, through his
liver and hit his aorta,
she said.
"I believe it would
have been fatal within
a matter of minutes,"
Simons said.
Under cross-examina-
tion, Simons said it was
unlikely Davis was stand-
ing up when he was shot.
Dunn's defense attorney,
Cory Strolla, had argued
in opening statements
that Davis had threat-
ened Dunn with a 4-inch
knife. Simons said the
bullet appeared to have


struck something hard,
like a car door, before
hitting Davis.
Florida Department
of Law Enforcement
analyst SukhanWarf said
toxicology tests on Davis
showed no signs of drugs
or alcohol in his body.
No gun was found in the
SUV.
Another law en-
forcement department
analyst, Maria Pagan,
testified earlier in the day
about the steps Dunn
took before shooting
the teen, bolstering
prosecutors' contention
that he acted with
premeditations.
Dunn would have
had to remove the gun
from its holster, load


the chamber with a
bullet and then apply six
pounds of pressure to
fire it, Pagan said.
Dunn fired the gun 10
times, hitting the SUV
nine times, and he would
have had to pull the
trigger every time using
more than six pounds
of pressure each time,
Pagan said.
Pagan answered
affirmatively when
prosecutor Angela
Corey asked, "Does that
take a conscious effort
of the shooter to have
a second-round come
out?"
The first witness to tes-
tify for the defense was
Randy Berry, a friend of
Dunn. He said he never


knew Dunn to be violent.
Berry's wife, Beverly
Berry, also testified that
she had never seen Dunn
with anything but a calm
demeanor.
Dunn had been at his
son's wedding before the
shooting. Dunn's ex-wife,
Phyllis Molinaro, and
son, Chris Dunn, told
jurors that Dunn didn't
appear drunk and was
in good spirits at the
wedding.
The defense attorney
also called Davis' father
to ask him what he
recalled in the days after
the shooting.
"I think I said at the
time that I was shocked
that my son was killed,"
Ronald Davis said.


MIAMI (AP) -
Addressing what he calls
a "growing opportunity
gap" between people
with and without
advanced educations,
Sen. Marco Rubio is
calling for state-ac-
credited alternatives to
four-year colleges and

The Florida senator

tion and those who do

College students, he
added, also should be

analyses comparing how
much they can expect
to earn in a particular
field to how much they
will owe after earning a
degree in the subject.
"You have this new

WASHINGTON (AP)-
Angling to avoid political

employers another delay in
a heavily criticized require-

In one of several conces-

For businesses with 100

US stocks end slightly higher


NEWYORK (AP) -The
stock market ended up
more or less where it
began Monday in a quiet
day for investors who
had little economic data
or company earnings to
react to.
Analysts said the
market is likely to remain
in a holding pattern until
traders hear from Janet
Yellen in her first testi-
mony before Congress
since becoming head of
the Federal Reserve.
After spending most
of the day lower, the
Dow Jones Industrial
average turned slightly
higher in late trading and
closed up 7.71 points, or
0.1 percent, at 15,801.79.


The Standard & Poor's
500 index rose 2.82
points, or 0.2 percent, to
1,799.84 and the Nasdaq
composite rose 22.31
points, or 0.5 percent, to
4,148.17.
The tech-heavy Nasdaq
was pushed higher by
Apple, which rose $9.31,
or 2 percent, to $528.99.
Apple rose after the ac-
tivist investor Carl Icahn
said he has dropped his
shareholder proposal to
force Apple to increase
its stock buybacks. Apple
recently disclosed it had
bought $14 billion of its
own stock.
Yellen, who started
her term as head of the
central bank this month,


is scheduled to testify be-
fore Congress on Tuesday
and Wednesday. Yellen's
comments will be closely
watched, especially after
recent disappointing
economic news and the
Fed's decision to further
reduce on its monthly
bond purchases.
Despite recent vol-
atility in the market,
investors believe that
Yellen will likely continue
her predecessor's plan
to continue winding
down the Fed's economic
stimulus program. Last
week, the Fed cut its
bond purchases to
$65 billion a month.
"We should expect
more volatility as the Fed


transitions away from
its (economic stimulus
plan)," said Doug Cote,
chief investment strat-
egist at ING Investment
Management.
Investors got a respite
from a recent deluge of
earnings and economic
reports. Wall Street
remains in the middle
of earnings season,
when the bulk of the
nation's publicly trad-
ed companies report
their quarterly results.
Only two out of the 55
companies announcing
this week reported their
results Monday: the toy
maker Hasbro and the
industrial conglomerate
Loews Corp.


Dumb Starbucks generates serious response


LOS ANGELES (LA
Times) -The Los Feliz
neighborhood was buzz-
ing Sunday afternoon as
crowds of people lined
up for hours to grab a
cup of coffee from Dumb
Starbucks.
The mock store, which
opened Friday, is nearly
identical to a typical
Starbucks location, with
tumblers for sale and
trendy CDs, including
"Dumb Jazz Standards,"
displayed on the counter.
But the similarities
end there. Drinks here
are served in green and
white "Dumb Starbucks
coffee" cups, while
pastries are pulled from
display cases straight
from their Vons bakery
packaging.
The menu features
"Dumb Iced Coffee,"
"Dumb Frappuccinos,"
and a seasonal "Wuppy
Duppy Latte."
But only iced coffees
and lattes were available
- free, to promote the
new business, an upbeat
barista told customers


after apologizing for the
wait.
"They're definitely
not serving at Starbucks
pace," customer Jeffrey
Eyster, 43, joked after
waiting about an hour in
line.
As word of the shop
spread on social media,
curious customers came
to snap selfies in front of
the sign or photos of the
line wrapped around the
small strip mall. Those
who cut to avoid a nearly
two-hour wait were
promptly shamed out of
line.
Rumors about the
store's origin percolated
through the crowd a
marketing ploy, a pop-up
art installation, perhaps
reality TV?
"It's a ballsy move
on their part," said Ilya
Khramtsou, 24. "It feels
like they're sticking it to
the company. Everybody
drinks Starbucks coffee,
like zombies."
"She drinks it every
day," he said, laughing
as he motioned to


his girlfriend Alisa
Bazhenova, 24.
The couple stopped by
to snap a quick photo,
but decided not to stay
once they saw the wait.
"I hope it's an art thing
vs. a business thing,"
Eyster said. "I'd love
to see a whole chain
of dumb McDonald's
and dumb Cheesecake
Factories."
People can go to any
mall anywhere and have
the same experience at
each of these chains,
Eyster said.
Starbucks is aware of
the parody and is "look-
ing into it," said Megan
Adams, a spokeswoman
for the company. She
declined to say whether
legal action would be
pursued or if this has
happened before.
An email sent to Dumb
Starbucks was not imme-
diately returned.
A list of frequently
asked questions pegs the
legality of the mock store
to "parody art."
"Although we are a


fully functioning coffee
shop, for legal reasons
Dumb Starbucks needs
to be categorized as a
work of parody art. So, in
the eyes of the law, our
'coffee shop' is actually
an art gallery and the
'coffee' you're buying is
considered the art. But
that's for our lawyers
to worry about. All you
need to do is enjoy our
delicious coffee!"
Those who did wait in
line said they came for
the novelty of the shop,
assuming it would be
shut down before the
weekend was over.
"It's a very L.A. thing,"
said Connor Sweeney,
24. "We'll see how long it
lasts. That's why I'm here
today."
He said he hoped it's
a joke, rather than some
kind of advertising ploy.
Maro Ishimoro, who
owns a salon next door,
said people have been
lined up outside his door
for hours, even before
the mock store had
opened for the day.


ear Mr. Berko:
In 1993, Ifell in
love with the art
of Thomas Kinkade. I
purchased one of his
beautiful pieces, paying
$19,000 for a modest
canvas of a cabin beside
a river with mountains
in the background. An
ex-student reluctantly
gave me terrible news:
My $19,000 Kinkade is
worth only a few hundred
dollars at best. About
the same time, a close
associate purchased two
signed Kinkade prints
and paid more than he
could afford. Now we are
told that his prints are
basically worthless. PC,
Oklahoma City
Dear PC: Tens and tens
of thousands of folks
were just as enchanted
and captivated by the
unique style of Thomas
Kinkade. If Thomas had
created just 100 or so
canvases, yours might
have been worth multiple
tens of thousands of
dollars today. However,
the almost tsunamic
demand for his canvases
was so overwhelming that
Thomas wisely decided to
go commercial before the
paint dried. So he created
what amounted to an in-
dustrial assembly line and
began to bang out myriad
idyllic, Arcadian and bu-
colic eclogues on canvas.
And because of Thomas'
prodigious output, the
supply exceeded demand,
and values collapsed.
Why? Everybody who
wanted a Kinkade could
afford an original. There's
a fascinating lesson here:
Basically, the pricing of
art is a farce.
Thomas got very rich
very quickly, and good for
him; he deserved it. The
rest of his life is another
story. Aficionados who
believed he was a saint
and adored their $40,000
canvases and $3,000


prints suddenly thought
he was gauche. But I'm
told that Kinkade's orig-
inal early works, which
were peddled by his wife
for $30 to $50 during their
salad days, now sell for a
few hundred dollars and
may have value for col-
lectors. And who knows?
In this kooky, fatuous,
drug-laced art world, all
of Kinkade's work could
become highly desirable
again. Good artists, as
knowledgeable collectors
know, are made, not dis-
covered. The work of most
of today's highly regarded
artists was considered
dreadful when these guys
were living; they had to
die to become valuable.
Sadly, your friend's
signed prints can be
bought for about a saw-
buck each. Thomas figu-
ratively produced tons of
them, and his silk-screens
could be worth as little
as an Elvis on velvet. But
your original canvas (there
are so many reproductions
that it's difficult to know
whether you have a real
Kinkade) may be worth
a dinner at Mahogany
Prime Steakhouse or
Cattlemen's Steakhouse
in OKC. Thomas' later
canvases, produced in
the 1990s, might fetch
only $50 to $70, and the
reproductions (though
beautiful) aren't worth a
fin or a fiver. However,
Professor, will you still
love your Kinkade know-
ing it's worth only a few
hundred dollars?

US gasoline falls
in Lundberg
Survey
(Bloomberg) -The
average price for regular
gasoline at U.S. pumps
fell 1.69 cents in the past
two weeks to $3.2944
a gallon, according to
Lundberg Survey Inc.
The survey covers the
period ended Friday and is
based on information ob-
tained at about 2,500 filling
stations by the Camarillo,
Calif.-based company.
The Friday retail price
is 29.74 cents lower than
a year ago, Lundberg said.
Gasoline has fallen
5.15 cents since Jan. 10.
"Prices don't seem
to be falling further
from this point," Trilby
Lundberg, the president
of Lundberg Survey, said
on Sunday in a telephone
interview. "Retailers got
wholesale gasoline-price
hikes, which have not
been passed through to
consumers."
Retailers will need to
raise prices to recover
from margins that have
been squeezed, Lundberg
said. "In the near future,
we can expect a rise at the
pump of a few pennies
per gallon," she said.

Man sentenced to
30 years in border
agent's death
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP)-
Kelly Terry-Willis did not
hesitate to look into the
eyes of the orange-jump-
suit-clad man involved in
the shooting death of her
big brother, telling him his
"evil decision" took from her
a loving confidant, dance
partner and dedicated
family man.
She turned to face
Manuel Osorio-Arellanes
numerous times as she
spoke about her brother
Brian Terry, who was killed
during a December 2010
shootout near the U.S.-
Mexico border. Osorio-
Arellanes was sentenced
Monday to 30 years on a
federal murder charge in
Terry's death, making him
the first person involved in
the killing to go to prison in
the U.S.
The case brought to
light the botched Fast and
Furious operation in which
federal agents trying to track
guns allowed criminals
to buy them for weapons
smugglers. Instead, agents
lost track of 1,400 of the
2,000 guns involved in the
sting operation, including
two weapons found at the
scene of Terry's killing.
Study: Media
everywhere,
bathroom included
LOS ANGELES (AP) -TV
viewers increasingly are
watching programs on their
own schedule, according to
a Nielsen company media
study released Monday,
In the past year,
time-shifting of television
content grew by almost
two hours, averaging 13
hours per month, the study
found. Viewers averaged
nearly 134 hours of live TV
viewing a month in 2013,
down nearly three hours
from 2012.
Television still remains
central to media consump-
tion, the study found.
On average, American
consumers own four
digital devices, the report
found. The majority of U.S.
households own high-defi-
nition TV sets, Internet-
connected computers and
smartphones, while nearly
half also own digital video
recorders and gaming
consoles.


The average consumer
spends about 60 hours
a week viewing content
across various platforms,
Nielsen found.
An offbeat survey find-
ing: 40 percent of adults
between the ages of 18 and
24 use social media in the
bathroom.


Sheepdog Swagger stars at Westminster


NEWYORK (AP) -
Other dogs came to play,
Swagger came to win.
Kept in peak form by
running up 15 flights of
stairs at his hotel, the
old English sheepdog
that nearly won at the
Westminster Kennel
Club last year bounded
to an early victory
Monday.
"You never know when
you get in the ring,"
co-owner and handler
Colton Johnson said.
"Tonight could be differ-
ent, you never know."
There were a total
of 2,845 entries for
America's top dog show.
Breed judging in the
hound, toy, nonsporting
and herding categories
started at Piers 92 and
94 on the Hudson River,
with group winners to be
picked Monday night at
Madison Square Garden.
Sporting, working and
terrier dogs will compete
Tuesday. The best in
show will be chosen
shortly before 11 p.m.


A-' IL l-IMUIU
In this Feb. 11,2013, file photo, Swagger, an Old English
Sheep Dog, is posed for photographs after winning the
herding group during the Westminster Kennel Club dog show
at Madison Square Garden in New York.


Among the other
breed winners was an
Australian shepherd
who lives with Tampa
Bay Rays catcher Ryan
Hanigan. Of the 44
entered, his Copperridge
What's Your Dream won.
"It's incredible that she
went from my No. 1 bed
buddy to best of breed at
Westminster!!!" Hanigan
wrote in a text message.
Prime contenders to


walk off with the prized
silver bowl are Sky the
wire fox terrier, Matisse
the Portuguese water
dog, Riley the Irish water
spaniel and the Fifinator,
a Doberman that has her
own Facebook page.
Swagger was a mere
rookie when he came
from Colorado Springs,
Colo., to Westminster
last February. At about
21 months old, he had


appeared in just three
dog shows, but quickly
became a crowd favorite.
Cheers filled the Garden
when he romped around
the ring, his full coat
of white-and-gray fur
shading his eyes.
Swagger finished sec-
ond, behind champion
Banana Joe the affenpin-
scher. The little mon-
key-faced dog is now
retired, and 97-pound
Swagger is ready to rule.
He's taken about 30 titles
at other events around
the country since then,
co-owner Debbie Burke
said.
"He's much more
confident," co-owner
Ron Scott said. "He loves
this, he loves to show."
Other things Swagger
enjoys: chewing ice
cubes, jogging with
Johnson and playing
with youngsters.
"The kids just lay all
over him, he doesn't
mind," Scott said. And
if their fruit roll-ups
occasionally wind up in


Swagger's hair, well, he's
all right with that.
Swagger beat out
four other old English
sheepdogs Monday
afternoon in the breed
round. Taller and fuller
than the rest, the dog
with the official name
of Bugaboo's Picture
Perfect was a clear pick.
Spectators stood
four-deep to watch him
in action, more than at
the other adjacent rings.
Fans called out his name
and shot video and pic-
tures on their cellphones
during his 15-minute
judging.
Mary Moorhouse and
her mother, Julie, were in
town from Owensboro,
Ky. They spotted Swagger
backstage in a grooming
area and followed him
to the ring, not even
knowing his history.
"It's his personality,"
Julie said. "He's smil-
ing. He's proud. He's
confident."
"I like how fluffy he is,"
her daughter said.


Is Georgia ready for the snowstorm this time


ATLANTA (AP) -Just
two weeks ago, Atlanta
became a national punch
line when a few inches
of snow crippled the
city. Comedians said the
gridlocked highways
looked more like a zom-
bie apocalypse than the
South's bustling business
hub.
On Monday, officials
were quick to act as the
winter weather zeroed
in, determined not be
the butt of jokes like
the Saturday Night Live
parody that referred to
the "devil's dandruff"
and "Yankee's slush."
Before a single drop of
freezing rain or snow fell,
Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal
had declared a state of
emergency for nearly a
third of the state, schools
canceled classes and
workers were told to stay
home.
Still, people were
skeptical the state would
be better prepared this
time.
"I'm not counting on
it. I've been in Georgia
on and off for 20 years.
It's usually the same
scenario, not enough
preparations and not
enough equipment," said
Terri Herod, who bought
a large bag of sand and a
shovel at a Home Depot.
She said her sister told
her to also buy kitty litter
in case her car gets stuck
on an ice patch.
The memories of the
Jan. 28 storm were too
fresh for some. Students
were trapped on buses or
at schools and thousands
of cars were abandoned
along highways as short
commutes turned into
odysseys. One woman
gave birth on a jammed
interstate. In the chaos,
though, there were stories
of Southern hospitality
- people opening up
homes and businesses
to help the stranded.
Officials reported one
accident-related death.
This storm could
be worse this time. A
one-two punch of winter
weather was expected
for Atlanta and northern
Georgia. Rain and up to
several inches of snow
were forecast Tuesday,
followed by sleet and
freezing rain Wednesday.
Downed power lines and
icy roads were a major
worry.
Other parts of the
South were expected to
get hit as well. Alabama,
which saw stranded
vehicles and had 10,000
students spend the
night in schools during
the January storm, was
likely to get a wintry mix
of precipitation. Parts


of Mississippi could see
3 inches of snow, and a
blast of snow over a wide
section of Kentucky slick-
ened roads and closed
several school districts.
The Carolinas were also
in the storm's path.
Atlanta has a long
and painful history of
being ill-equipped to
deal with snowy weather
and people were not
taking any chances, even
though officials promised
the response would be
different this time.
"We're not looking
back, we're looking
forward," Deal said. "The
next three days are going
to be challenging. We
want to make sure we are
as prepared as possible."
Schools announced
early that they would
close Tuesday, and
tractor-trailer drivers
were handed fliers about
the weather and a law
requiring chains on tires.
People around Atlanta
planned to stay off the
roads, which couldn't be
treated last time because
there were too many cars
stuck on them.
"Basically, everyone
from the office is going to
be working from home"
on Tuesday, Dakota
Herrera said as he left
a downtown car park
on his way to the office
Monday.
Deal was doing many
things differently. He
opened an emergency
operations center and
held a news conference
hours before the storm.
When the Jan. 28 storm
hit, Deal was at an
awards luncheon with
Mayor Kasim Reed, who
was named a magazine's
2014 "Georgian of the
Year."
Reed had just tweeted:
'Atlanta, we are ready for
the snow."
This time, the mayor
made no such predic-
tions. Instead, he said
he was in contact with
school leaders and the
city had 120 pieces of
equipment to spread salt
and sand and plow snow.
"We are just going to
get out here and, flat out,
let our work speak for
itself," Reed said.
During the last storm,
Deal and Reed didn't hold
their first news confer-
ence until hours after
highways were jammed.
Much is at stake for the
governor, a Republican
who is up for re-election,
and Reed, who is seen
as a rising star in the
Democratic Party and has
aspirations for higher of-
fice. Both took heat from
residents, forecasters and
even comedians during


the last storm.
Saturday Night
Live spoofed a storm
"survivor" with a thick
Southern accent. "The
sun will rise again,"
the character said at
one point. Jon Stewart
quipped: "The ice age
zombie doomsday
apocalypse has come to
Atlanta."
The governor apolo-
gized and announced
the formation of a
task force to study the
problems. He also called
for various reviews and
wants a new public
alert system for severe
weather, similar to what's
used for missing and
endangered children.

another round of winter weather.

EU urges new government, elections in Ukraine


BRUSSELS (AP) -
In a sharp rebuke to
Ukrainian President
Viktor Yanukovych, the
European Union on
Monday called for the
formation of a new, in-
clusive government and
constitutional reforms
that would pave the way
to "free and fair presiden-
tial elections."
The bloc's 28 foreign
ministers said in a joint
statement they were
"alarmed by the human
rights situation, includ-
ing violence, cases of
missing persons, torture
and intimidation" as
part of the authorities'
crackdown against the
ongoing protests, reflect-
ing an "atmosphere of
impunity."
Ukraine has been


rocked by nearly three
months of anti-govern-
ment protests sparked
by Yanukovych's refusal
to sign an agreement
with the EU and accept a
$15 billion loan package
from Russia instead.
The political deadlock is
also pushing Ukraine's
economy closer to the
brink; its currency and
foreign reserves are
tumbling while Moscow
has suspended its loan
payments.
The ministers at their
meeting in Brussels
reiterated the EU stands
ready to assist Ukraine
financially, provided a
new, inclusive govern-
ment will be formed to
"pursue economic and
political reforms."
The EU has so far shied


Syrian peace talks


resume amid tension


BEIRUT (Washington
Post) -A second round
of Syrian peace talks
started acrimoniously on
Monday as the two sides
traded accusations over
disruptions to humanitar-
ian operations in the city
of Horns and the Syrian
government alleged mass
killings in nearby Hama.
The government
accused Islamist rebel
battalions of a "massacre"
in a village in central Hama
province, making for a
tense beginning to negotia-
tions in Geneva.
Meanwhile, aid oper-
ations in Homrns, planned
as a confidence-building
measure between the gov-
ernment and opposition
in initial talks last month,
have been plagued by
violence, with both sides
blaming each other for


violations in a supposed
cease-fire.
The shelling and gunfire
targeting humanitarian
workers attempting to
reach rebel-held areas of
Horns is a reminder of the
complexities of reaching
even the smallest conces-
sions in a civil war where
developments on the
ground have consistently
outpaced diplomacy. Battle
lines are constantly shift-
ing, with the al-Qaida-in-
spired Islamic State of Iraq
and Syria withdrawing
from its bases in oil-rich
Deir Ezzor on Monday
after rebel infighting.
The two sides did
not meet in Geneva
on Monday, with U.N.
mediator Lakhdar Brahimi
instead holding separate
sessions with each
delegation.


away from imposing
sanctions such as travel
bans or asset freezes
against the Ukrainian
leadership, but the for-
eign ministers' demand
for constitutional reform
and fresh elections
on Monday reflected
the bloc's growing
impatience.
"A new and inclusive
government, constitu-
tional reform bringing
back more balance of
powers, and prepara-
tion for free and fair
presidential elections
would contribute to
bring Ukraine back on
a sustainable path of
reforms," they said.
Separately, the foreign
ministers decided to

Cuba to upgrade the EU's

UN says Iran
yielding twice
shows pragmatism

VIENNA (Bloomberg)
-The United Nations
praised Iran's decision
to give investigators new
information about a
reactor, the second time
in a week the Persian Gulf
nation has signaled will-
ingness to compromise
on its Arak project.
An International
Atomic Energy Agency
team, led by its top in-
spector, Tero Varjoranta,
agreed with Iranian coun-
terparts to a seven-point
deal that commits Iran
to update design infor-
mation about the Arak

had developed advanced

"Iran has taken all the

sures that they were sup-
posed to do," Varjoranta
told reporters Monday


ties with the Caribbean
island nation. The EU's
foreign policy chief,
however, cautioned that
progress will depend on
Cuba's determination to
implement further re-
forms toward opening its
economy and respecting
fundamental rights.
The EU resumed
low-level contacts with
Cuba in 2008, two years
after Raul Castro became
president and started
granting Cubans some
more freedom.
While Washington's re-
lations with Cuba are de-
fined by the 52-year-old
trade embargo, European
nations have long traded
with Cuba and thou-
sands of Europeans flock

*NFL: Michael Sam


First openly gay player faces


Prospect is about to
test how open-minded
the NFL really is
By ARNIE STAPLETON
ASSOCIATED PRESS
Michael Sam will face a daunting
set of challenges that most rookies
don't have to deal with when mak-
ing the already formidable jump
from college to the NFL.
The SEC's co-defensive player
of the year is about to find out if
America's most popular sport, root-
ed in machismo and entrenched in
locker room hijinks, is ready for its
first openly gay player.
First, he'll have to find a team


willing to put up with the media
circus that will surround him. Then,
he'll have to find acceptance like he
did at Missouri, where his sexuality
was a non-issue during a 12-2 sea-
son. Only now, he'll face opponents
and their fans who know he's gay.
He might even face cheap shots
and teammates hesitant to shower
alongside him or undress in his
presence.
While several teams and coaches
said Monday that Sam's sexual
orientation wouldn't affect his draft
status, former NFL punter Chris
Kluwe, who contends his champi-
oning of gay rights led to his release
from the Minnesota Vikings last
year, wasn't so sure.


"The majority of players will be
supportive of Michael Sam or just
won't care," Kluwe said. "You'll have
isolated guys here and there who
might try to make a fuss about it,
but players by and large are very
much, 'Hey, we're here to do a
job, we're here to go out and play
football.'
"In terms of the coaching/front
office side, I think there's where is-
sues are going to arise because they
are going to look at this like, 'Hey, is
this going to cause a distraction for
the team?' And by distraction, they
mean, 'We're not really OK with
having a gay player on our team,
we can't come out and say that,
HURDLES I 4


Missouri defensive lineman Michael Sam speaks to the media
during a news conference in Irving, Texas, last month. Sam
could become the first openly gay player in the NFL.

By GARY BROWN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
ENGLEWOOD For
years, Lemon Bay High
School's girls tennis team
has been one of the top
programs in Southwest
Florida.
DeSoto County,
meanwhile, has a young,
inexperienced team going
through a rebuilding
process.
So Lemon Bay's 7-0
victory on Monday
was not surprising, but
DeSoto Country at least
showed promise with
three sophomores and
two freshmen in the
starting lineup.
"We're young and
inexperienced," said
first-year Bulldogs coach
Devia LaCava, a DeSoto
County graduate who was
the Bulldogs' No. 1 singles
player and No. 1 doubles
player his senior season.
"Our No. 2, No. 3 and
No. 4 singles players are
sophomores and played
last season, but our No. 1
and No. 5 singles players
are freshmen and new.

Morgan delivers relief

Freshman stifles rally,
sparks North Port rally
against Charlotte
By CHUCK BALLARO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
PUNTA GORDA Freshman Vanessa
Morgan was clutch for the North Port
High School softball team on the mound
and at the plate.
Morgan came on in relief to cut down
a Charlotte rally and hit a two-run single
to highlight a five-run fifth inning as the
Bobcats rallied for a 6-2 victory Monday
night in a nondistrict contest.
It's been a habit early in the season that
has given coach AmandaWathen a few
gray hairs.
"We start coming on strong in the third
and fourth innings and finish strong,"
Wathen said. "They had me nervous for a
while, but we're a team that plays to the
end."
Morgan, who earned the win, came
on in relief of an ineffective Courtney
Naylor with runners on second and third
and one out in the third. She struck out
Tiffany Dodson and had Rylee Garand
line out to first to end the threat.
"Once everyone noticed what was
going on; we put up the shields and
stopped them from scoring," Morgan
said. "They've worked with me hard on
pitching because they want me to relieve
and shut things down."
With the Bobcats trailing 2-1 in the
.o.fifth, Carolyn Syzonenko led off with
"a double for North Port (2-1). Allyson
Stewart added a bunt single and Erin
: ..Durbin reached on a fielder's choice to
load the bases.

Youth could finish




with a record run


By BARBARA BOXLEITNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Sean Perry is a special
runner.
The Englewood
third-grader has been
breezing through 5K
courses with such regu-
larity that professional
triathlete and distance
runner Lukas Verzbicas is
supposed to meet with the
8-year-old during a March
visit to the area.
Perry completed the re-
cent Running Through the
Palms 5K in Englewood in
20 minutes, 58 seconds to
finish third overall.
"I paced myself," Sean
said about the personal
best time. "I just love
running."
Englewood Elite Track
Club founder and coach


Danny Duncan, who has
been training Perry for
the past two years, said he
is awaiting confirmation
that the time is a record
for 8-year-olds.
"I haven't seen anything
faster," Duncan said. 'Sean
can be the best runner to
come out of Englewood
hands down."
Perry and his brother,
Jake, typically practice
Monday and Wednesday
with Duncan, Sean said.
At practice Duncan has
them run a lot of sprints.
"We do a lot of speed
work to help develop
faster turnover and to
get him (Sean) faster,"
Duncan said. "Children, I
believe, should work on as
much speed as they can
while they're young and


most shouldn't run 5Ks.
Sean is the exception. He
can train for them."
Duncan has helped
Sean get more power into
his stride.
"I had to lift my legs a
little bit higher," said Sean,
winner of the 9-and-under
group at the Resolution
Run 5K in January (21:32)
and 18th overall. "Now I'm
perfect with it."
Verzbicas won the
gold medal at the 2011
International Triathlon
Union Junior World
Championships and has
run a 3:59 mile. He will
meet with the Perry family
in March to offer guidance
about the boys' running
careers, Duncan said.

FGCU guard nets award


By ZACH MILLER
SPORTS WRITER
Brett Comer is known
for his fearless play, and
teammates give him cred-
it for igniting Florida Gulf
Coast's offense, which
scored 173 points in two
games last week.
"He plays so hard and
he's so emotional when
he plays," Chase Fieler
said after the Eagles'
63-60 victory against
USC-Upstate last month.
Comer suffered a broken
nose in the game.
"When he gets going,
you can see it, he has
a look in his eyes. He's
one of the toughest kids.
You see those looks that
Brett's giving, you start
getting excited with him."
Others have taken
notice.
Comer added another
award to his list of
accomplishments this
season, earning Atlantic
Sun Conference player
of the week honors on
Monday.
In Thursday's game
against Jacksonville,
the junior point guard
scored a career-high with
30 points on 11 of 17
shooting, including 4-4
on 3-pointers.
Comer, who has been
playing with a mask since
suffering the broken nose
on Jan. 16, had eight as-
sists against Jacksonville
and also had 10 points
and nine rebounds
against North Florida on
Saturday.


Comer currently leads
the Eagles with 5.3 assists
per game, and is second
on the team in scoring
with 14 points per game.
He's also fifth on the con-
ference's all-time career
assist list with 554.
With two wins last
week, FGCU pulled back
into a first-place tie with
Mercer at 10-2 in confer-
ence play. The two teams
meet next Friday at Alico
Arena. First, the Eagles
play two road games this
week at East Tennessee
State and USC-Upstate.

FGCU names volleyball
coach: Colorado State assistant
coach Matthew Botsford was named
Florida Gulf Coast's volleyball and sand
volleyball coach.
Botsford, 38, who played at
Tri-State University (now Trine
University) from 1995-98, has been
the top assistant at Colorado State
since 2012. He helped lead the
Rams to two of the most successful
seasons in program history. CSU
won the Mountain West Conference
championship in 2012 and 2013,
advancing to the NCAA Tournament
each year and winning a school-record
27 consecutive games this fall.
Botsford replaces Nichols, who is
resigning effective Feb. 22. Nichols led
the Eagles to 99 wins in six years, five
Atlantic Sun Tournament appearances
and two A-Sun championships.

Worton grabs ESPN
award: Central Florida receiver J.J.
Worton won the ESPN Sport Science
Newton Award for best catch for his
spectacular one-handed grab against
Temple on Nov. 16. The junior's
reception, which has been viewed 1.4


millions times on You Tube, sparked
a 39-36 comeback victory for the
Knights in a 12-1 season culminating
with the American Athletic Conference
title and a victory over No. 5 Baylor in
the Fiesta Bowl.

Player of the week
roundup: South Florida's Victor
Rudd was named to the American
Athletic Conference honor roll in
men's basketball. The senior forward
averaged 20.5 points and 8.5
rebounds over two games, including a
season-high 25 points in a 79-78 win
at Central Florida on Wednesday. USF's
Courtney Williams in women's basket-
ball and softball players Kourtney
Salvarola and Erica Nunn also earned
AAC honorable mentions....
Florida's Kayla Lewis was named
Southeastern Conference co-player
of the week in women's basketball.
The junior averaged 16.0 points and
13.5 rebounds, while shooting a
64.7 percent from the floor and 83.3
percent from the free throw line in two
games last week, including Sunday's
86-80 upset win against No. 15
Kentucky. ...
Florida's Lauren Haeger was named
SEC pitcher of the week in softball.
The junior was 2-0 with a 1.08 ERA
nd 18 strikeouts in wins over Illinois
State and Wisconsin. She pitched her
first no-hitter Sunday in a 5-1 victory
against the Badgers with a career-high
11 strikeouts. ...
Florida Gulf Coast's Kelsey
Carpenter was named the Atlantic
Sun player of the week in softball. The
junior led the Eagles to a 5-0-1 record
at the FGCU/Four Points Invitational
for the best start in program history.
She batted .625 with 10 hits in 16
at-bats, including three doubles and
two home runs.

everyone take a hard
fall today. That never
happens.... They should
push it back is what they
should do, and fix it so
we can showcase snow-
boarding the way it needs
to be showcased. Not as a
junk show, which is what
it was looking like."
The men's halfpipe
competition is scheduled
for tonight at Rosa Khutor
Extreme Park with the
women scheduled to
compete Wednesday.
Officials were planning to
work through the night to
improve the pipe, after a
second straight day of un-
characteristic spills and
unrestrained critiques.
Shaun White, the two-
time gold medal winner
in the event, didn't try to
hide his frustration fol-
lowing practice Monday
night, calling the pipe
"disappointing."
"It's hard to get in there
and have all the tricks


Shaun White, getting air during a halfpipe training session on Monday, can become the seventh
athlete to win three consecutive golds in an individual Winter Olympics sport.


and have everything that
you need and not be able
to get to the wall," he
said. "I just had a frustrat-
ing practice. I'm hoping
tomorrow will be better."
Practice Monday was
originally scheduled for
the morning but was
postponed so officials
could work on the pipe.
Later in the evening,
riders said as practice


progressed, the transi-
tions grew increasingly
bumpy, and the flat
surface area between the
walls deteriorated. Teter
likened it to a mogul field.
Many riders had trouble
staying upright and
gathering momentum
between tricks.
"That's not what
halfpipe is supposed
to be like," Teter said.


"People are supposed to
be landing their tricks."
Snowboarders said the
pipe was actually im-
proved from Sunday, the
first day of practice. The
walls and curves received
significant work. One
U.S. coach said the warm
weather Monday helped
the snow stick earlier in
the day, but riders said
after a single practice


run the pipe worsened
and snowboarders began
to fear what conditions
would be like during
actual competition.
American Danny Davis
stopped short of calling
the course dangerous:
"It's just not as fun."
Under the current
conditions, most said
they'd have to alter their
planned runs. White said
he'd have trouble throw-
ing his cab double cork
1440. "I'm hoping for the
best," he said.
After two days of
practices, riders say the
Sochi Olympics pipe
will force all riders to
make adjustments. Many
competed in a test event
here last year and said the
pipe was subpar at the
time. A year later, it's still
noticeably different from
what they see in regular
competitions.
Despite the conditions
this week, four-time
Olympian Kelly Clark said
the Sochi pipe is actually
an improvement over the
one in Vancouver four
years ago.

The rich history of Russian pairs skating will

great that some incarnation of Russia won 12
consecutive golds from 1964 until 2006. Then it
was shut out in Vancouver in 2010. This Games

it"frustrating"and another snowboarder called
it a "junk show."There was even some talk of
postponing the event until things could be fixed.
That's not likely.

WINTER 3-PEAT
Julia Mancuso became the
third U.S. Olympian to win an
individual medal at three Winter
Games.
With her bronze Monday in
the women's super-combined,
Mancuso joined speedskater
Bonnie Blair (1998 in Calgary,
1992 in Albertville and 1994 in
Lillehammer) and short track star
Apolo Anton Ohno (2002 in Salt
Lake City, 2006 in Turin and 2010
in Vancouver).
Mancuso also won gold in the
giant slalom atTurin in 2006 and
silvers in the super-combined and
downhill at Vancouver in 2010.

have something that I
can break records in at
the same time is also fun
and exciting for me," said
Mancuso, whose two-run
time of 2 minutes, 35.15
seconds was 0.53 slower
than champion Maria
Hoefl-Riesch of Germany.
"If I can keep the
Olympics as my thing,
that's fine," Mancuso said,


"and I'm really proud of
it."
It sure showed Monday,
the way she punched the
air and screamed for joy
after the slalom, did a jig
on her step of the podium
during the flower ceremo-
ny, then ran around with
a U.S. flag, hugging family
members.
"She is everything
you want your athletes
to be," said Bill Marolt,
CEO of the U.S. Ski and
Snowboard Association.
"She brings herself to
her best possible level of
preparation and puts it all
out there."
Only four women
from anywhere own
more Alpine medals
than Mancuso, who can
increase her total over the
next two weeks, starting
with Wednesday's down-
hill. The record of six is
shared by Croatia's Janica
Kostelic and Sweden's
Anja Paerson.
The 29-year-old
Mancuso, who grew up


in SquawValley, Calif.,
was asked what's different
about her when she's in
an Olympic start hut.
"I feel more nervous.
It's not nerves of failure,
it's just nerves," she ex-
plained. "There's just a lot
of emotion and knowing
that, 'This is my chance.
This is my shot.'"
While Vonn's resume
includes 59 World Cup
race victories and four
overall titles, Mancuso
has never enjoyed that
sort of success. She has
seven career World Cup
wins, and struggled this
season, never finishing
better than seventh.
"You definitely start to
doubt things, for sure....
The best thing we could
have done is take a break
for Christmas and New
Year and then get back
into it," said Chris Knight,
Mancuso's personal
coach on the U.S. team.
"It was like pressing the
reset button for her, and it
has worked."

world champion. "Sure,

The weather could get even definitely ready in 2010,
warmer by the end of the week. but unfortunately they
pushed it to 2014. But


now we've made it."
Along the way, women
jumpers had to over-
come stereotypes that
persisted even while the
International Olympic
Committee was adding
women's boxing and
wrestling to the Summer
Games and extreme
sports such as halfpipe
and aerials to the Winter
Games.
As recently as 2005,
Gian Franco Kasper,
the president of the
International Ski
Federation, told an NPR
reporter that ski jumping
"seems not to be appro-
priate for ladies from a
medical point of view."
"I thought it was
laughable," said Jessica
Jerome, the U.S. Olympic
trials champion.
But there was nothing
funny about the de-
cade-long battle to get
women's ski jumping
on the Olympic pro-
gram. Fifteen athletes,
including Jerome and
LindseyVan, who won
the first women's world
championship in 2009,


filed a lawsuit to compete
at the 2010 Vancouver
Games. It went all the way
to the Supreme Court of
Canada, which refused to
hear an appeal.
In 2011, at long last,
the IOC announced that
it would add women's ski
jumping to the program
for the Sochi Games.
"The fight that Lindsey
and Jessica went through
as athletes was nev-
er-ending," Hendrickson
said. "I give them so
much credit for how
strong they stayed. It
would be so easy to just
walk away and they
stayed strong and paved
the way for me. I can't
thank them enough."
Hendrickson, Jerome
and Van will represent
the United States and are
keen to show the world
they belong.
"I just want people to
see that women can ski
jump," Van said. "It's one
of the oldest sports in the
Olympics and it's taken
90 years for women to be
here. I'm just thrilled to
show ski jumping to the


world, and that women
can do it."
Hendrickson, 19, would
have been a favorite to
win gold if not for a train-
ing crash in Germany on
Aug. 21 that left her with
a devastating knee injury.
She tore her ACL, tore her
MCL off the bone, shred-
ded 80 percent of her
meniscus and underwent
reconstructive surgery on
Aug. 29.
With Hendrickson
hobbled, 17-year-old
Sara Takanashi of Japan
is the favorite to win the
gold medal. The 5-foot,
99-pound Takanashi is
No. 1 in the World Cup
ranking.
No matter who wins the
first Olympic medals, all
the women will literally
be jumping for joy.
"Of course, I'm excited
to be representing Team
USA," Van said, "but I'm
also very excited to be
representing women's
ski jumping. All of us are
thrilled to be here. It was
a long, uphill battle."
From here on out,
though, it's all downhill.


WOMEN'S LUGE
The U.S. may pick up its first medal in
women's luge if things go right. After two of the
four runs, Erin Hamlin sits in third place behind
two women from Germany. Hamlin finished
12th in Turin in 2006 and 16th in Vancouver in
2010.

MONDAY'S
HEADLINES

Hoefl-Riesch wins 2nd
gold in super-combined:
Different American, same result
for Maria Hoefl-Riesch another
Olympic gold in the super-combined.
Just as she did four years ago at
the Vancouver Games, Hoefl-Riesch
found herself trailing an American
after the downhill leg before using her
slalom skills to vault into first place and
successfully defend her Olympic title in
the dual-run event.
The German finished less than a
second ahead of both silver medalist
Nicole Hosp of Austria and Julia
Mancuso of the United States, who won
the bronze. Mancuso won the silver
four years ago in Vancouver.
Mancuso, who finished 0.53 behind
Hoefl-Riesch, won her fourth career
Olympic medal in Alpine skiing. No
other American woman has won more
than two.

Curling's fashion kings:
The Norwegian men made their Sochi
debut with another snazzy pattern on
their pants -- a mixture of red, white,
blue and gray squares and rectangles.
Norway dazzled the U.S. 7-4,
but the surprise of opening day was
Switzerland's upset of defending
champion Canada.
On the women's side, Sweden
defeated Britain 6-4 in a matchup of
two favorites for the gold.
Switzerland beat the United States
7-4 and Russia delighted its raucous
fans by defeating Denmark 6-4 in the
other first round-robin games.

U.S., Canadian women
advance in hockey: The
United States romped to a 9-0 victory
over Switzerland. all but clinching a
spot in the Olympic women's hockey
semifinals. Canada topped Finland 3-0
to ensure its spot in the semifinals.
On Wednesday, the powers face
off in preliminary play. They bring a
history of competition, respect -and,
recently, a pair of fist-slinging brawls.

Short-track firsts: Canada
won its first gold medal of the games
as veteran short-track speedskater
Charles Hamelin won the 1,500 meters
for his third different Olympic title.
At 29, Hamelin was the oldest
skater in the first final of the short
track competition. He maintained a
top-three position throughout most of
the 14-lap race, leaving enough at the
end to defeat a loaded field.
Russia got its first short-track
medal ever, thanks to Viktor Ahn, who
captured the bronze for his adopted
country. He won three golds for his
native South Korea, but after missing
the Vancouver Olympics, he changed
his name and moved to Russia.
J.R. Celski of Federal Way, Wash.,
was the highest U.S. finisher (fourth).

Canadians also master
moguls: Alex Bilodeau won his
second consecutive gold medal in
men's moguls, becoming the first
repeat Olympics winner. Canadian
teammate Mikael Kingsbury won the
silver, giving the Canadians a 1-2 finish
in both men's and women's moguls.
Patrick Deneen ofCle Elum, Wash.,
was the highest U.S. finisher (ninth).

Nyet for Bjoerndalen:
Norway's Ole Einar Bjoerndalen just
missed what would have been a
record 13th Winter Olympic medal,
finishing fourth in the men's biathlon
12.5-kilometer pursuit.
The event was won by Martin
Fourcade, giving France its first gold.
Tim Burke of Paul Smiths, N.Y., was the
highest U.S. finisher (22nd).
Bjoerndalen has several more shots
in Sochi to win the medal that would
put him one ahead of cross-country
skiing great Bjoern Daehlie.

The brothers, not
Karamazov: Michel Mulder
edged his teammate Jan Smeekens by
12-thousanths of a second in the men's
500, and Mulder's twin brother Ronald
got the bronze as the Dutch scored
another speedskating sweep. Mulder's
victory earned him the title of fastest
man on skates.
Shani Davis of Chicago was the
highest U.S. finisher (24th).
The Netherlands also went 1-2-3 in
the men's 5,000 and took the top spot
in the women's 3,000.

* NFL NOTEBOOK


Zook eager for


coaching return


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
GREEN BAY, Wis.-
Two years away from the
sideline was enough for
Ron Zook he wanted
back in.
So when Green Bay
Packers coach Mike
McCarthy called with an
opportunity to return to
the profession in which
he had worked more
than three decades, Zook
jumped at the chance to
interview.
McCarthy gave him the
job. Meet the new assis-
tant special teams coach
for Green Bay.
"No, I didn't have to
think about it at all," Zook
said Monday at Lambeau
Field.
At Green Bay, he'll assist
special teams coordinator
Shawn Slocum. No ego
problems here, even if
Zook was once the head
coach of major college
programs at Florida and
Illinois.
"To me, I was able to
get back in coaching for
the reasons I got into
coaching," Zook said.
"Because I love the game.
You love the relationships
you have with the players,
the relationships you have
with the coaches."
The addition of Zook
was part of a handful
of offseason changes
to McCarthy's staff,
necessitated in part by
the departures of quarter-
backs coach Ben McAdoo
to become offensive
coordinator of the New
York Giants; and outside
linebackers coach Kevin
Greene, who left to spend
more time with family.
But other than veteran
defensive coordinator
Dom Capers, few assis-
tants on McCarthy's staff
have Zook's extensive
experience.
Zook will enter his 35th
year in the profession,
with his most notable
stops as head coach at
Florida (2002-4) and
Illinois (2005-11). He's
122-57 overall as a college
head coach, including a
trip to the Rose Bowl in

so we're going to use the
word distraction,'" Kluwe
added. 'And unfortunate-
ly, those are the people
who determine if you're
employed or not."
John Elway has a
unique perspective run-
ning the Broncos' front
office now after a Hall of
Fame playing career, and
he said Monday he'd have
no problem drafting Sam.
"We will evaluate
Michael just like any
other draft prospect: on
the basis of his ability,
character and NFL poten-
tial. His announcement
will have no effect on how
we see him as a football
player," Elway said.
"Having spent 16 years
in an NFL locker room,
the bottom line is that it's
about treating others with
respect and earning that
respect. By all indications,
it appears Michael has
done just that throughout
his football career."
Several coaches said if a
player is accountable and
a winner, being gay is a
non-issue.
"If anybody can come
in and help us win
games and be successful
black, white, yellow,
straight, gay-- I don't
think it matters," said new
Green Bay quarterbacks
coach AlexVan Pelt.
Before Sam revealed
his sexual orientation, the


pass-rusher was projected
as a mid-round draft pick.
Kluwe said reports that

ranks Monday with Green Bay.

2007.
But that 9-4 season
with the Illini turned out
to be the high point in
Champaign. He was fired
after a 6-6 season in 2011.
Since then, he's worked
on a college show for CBS,
and as business develop-
ment officer for Gateway
Bank in Florida.
McCarthy noted Zook's
energetic personality as
one of a strength, and
harkened back to their
competitive days match-
ing wits as coordinators.
"That's something that
I always admired of him
and also frankly the fact
that he's gone on and he's
been a head coach and
he's built two programs,"
McCarthy said. "That's
something that I think will
definitely be a benefit to
our program and a benefit
to myself."

Around the league: The
Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed quarter-
back Mike Kafka, a 2010 fourth-round
draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles
who played at Northwestern. The Bucs
also waived guard/tackle Gabe Carimi,
running back Michael Hill, quarterback
Jordan Rodger and defensive tackle
Derek Landri....

Several Washington, D.C.-area
lawmakers said they support a name
change for the Washington Redskins,
but none appeared inclined to support
congressional action to do so ...
The NewYork Jets promoted Tony
Sparano Jr. to offensive assistant, and
added former safety Eric Smith as a
seasonal intern.


THE HAT TRICK
Rob Shore pondered the impact
of Michael Sam's announcement
in The Hat Trick on Monday at
suncoastsportsblog.com:
You'd think NFL commissioner
Roger Goodell or his henchmen
will be whispering in the ear of
whichever team who drafted
Sam: "Come on, the league needs
this."
It's a tough spot to be in.
Or Sam can make a lot of
this a non-issue with a fantastic
workout at the combine and a
training camp that leaves no
doubt among NFL execs that he
belongs. ...
We'll see where this leads -
this story sure isn't going to go
away.

Sam's draft stock could
drop now "basically could
have been lifted from any
American sporting paper
in the 1940s when Jackie
Robinson was about
to enter Major League
Baseball. It's like we've
been here before. Why do
we have to keep doing the
same thing?"
It would help Sam is
landing on a team with
strong veteran leadership,
something that was
lacking in Miami, where
Dolphins tackle Jonathan
Martin walked away at
midseason, alleging guard
Richie Incognito led daily
harassment with racial,
aggressive and sexually
charged comments.
Incognito was sus-
pended for the final eight
games and Martin's career
was thrown in limbo.

SMU's back in Top


25


and so is Larry Brown


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Even Larry Brown was
young the last time SMU
was ranked.
In their second season
under the 73-year-old
Hall of Fame coach, the
Mustangs moved into the
Associated Press Top 25
for the first time since the
next-to-last poll of 1984-
85, a season when they
reached as high as No. 2.
SMU (19-5) moved in
off a 76-53 victory over
then-No. 7 Cincinnati,
a win that snapped
the Bearcats' 15-game
winning streak.
It was the Mustangs'
third win over a ranked
team in seven game since
moving back into a ren-
ovated Moody Coliseum
five weeks ago.
Before the streak SMU
hadn't beaten a ranked
team since December

2003 and the last time
the Mustangs beat more
than one ranked team in a
season was 1984-85 when
Jon Koncak was the star
player and Dave Bliss was
the head coach.
SMU's other wins
over ranked teams this
season were then-No. 17
Connecticut and then-
No. 22 Memphis, like
Cincinnati, all American
Athletic Conference
games.
"I think I'm happy for
all of (the players) be-
cause they've been talking
about this since the
beginning of the season,"
Brown said Monday. "And
we've had some chances
to get ourselves in that


position, but to finally get
there and when you look
back and see that we were
able to beat Memphis,
Temple and Cincinnati
in a week. If you look at
those three programs and
what they've been able
to accomplish over the
years, that's a huge step
for us."
And for the AAC, which
reached an impressive
plateau in its first season.
With SMU moving into
the rankings, the AAC
has five members in the
Top 25 Cincinnati,
Louisville, Memphis
and Connecticut are the
others joining the Big
Ten for the most.
The Big Ten reached
five with the return of
Wisconsin and Ohio State.
Michigan State, Michigan
and Iowa are the others
from the Big Ten.

Pistons

coach

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
AUBURN HILLS, Mich.
- Brandon Jennings
scored 21 points, and
the Detroit Pistons beat
the San Antonio Spurs
109-100 on Monday night
in John Loyer's first game
as interim coach.
Detroit abruptly fired
Maurice Cheeks on
Sunday after only 50
games as coach, but
although they've been
unimpressive for the
most part this season, the
Pistons have played better
lately. The comfortable
win over the Spurs was
Detroit's fifth in seven
games.
Rodney Stuckey scored
20 points for the Pistons,
who pulled even with
Charlotte for the final
playoff spot in the Eastern
Conference, and Greg
Monroe added 15 points
and 10 rebounds.

Rockets 107,
Timberwolves 89: In
Minneapolis, Dwight Howard
had 18 points and 15 rebounds, and
Houston used a fourth-quarter surge
to hold off the Minnesota for its sixth
consecutive victory.

Pacers 119, Nuggets 80:
In Indianapolis, David West scored 25
points and Roy Hibbert added 14 as
Indiana routed short-handed Denver.
The Pacers (40-11) still have the NBA's
best record, the league's best home
record (25-2) and now lead two-time
defending champion Miami by four
games in the Eastern Conference.

Raptors 108, Pelicans
101: In Toronto, Kyle Lowry had 19
points and 12 assists, Patrick Patterson
scored a season-high 22 and the
Raptors beat New Orleans.

Celtics 102, Bucks 86:
In Milwaukee, Jeff Green scored 29
points and Kelly Olynyk added 14
points and 11 rebounds as Boston
pulled away from the Bucks in the
fourth quarter.

MANTAS

FROM PAGE 1

We're getting better and
we have a good group of
ninth-graders."
DeSoto County's youth
movement was over-
matched by Lemon Bay
(2-1), which won all five
singles matches in 6-0
straight sets and the two
doubles matches 8-0.
The Manta Rays were
led by senior Linda
Antonova who took a 6-0,
6-0 victory over freshman
Elizabeth Reyes at No. 1
singles.
Antonova, who won
the District 2A- 11 No. 1
singles crown last season,
is 3-0 this season. She
played at No. 2 singles
the first two matches
before moving up to No.
1 against the Bulldogs.
She also teamed with No.
2 singles player Jessica
Lown to win at No. 1
doubles.
Lown was the district
champion at No. 2 singles
last season and teamed
with Antonova to win
the district title at No. 1
doubles.
"It's hard to say how


I'm doing compared to
last season," Antonova
said. "We have some new
players and it's early yet.
I think I'm doing better
with my serving though."
Lown, her sister Sarah
at No. 3, Maddie Casad at
No. 4 and Ashley Tormey
at No. 5 also won their
singles matches. Sarah
Lown and Casad won the
No. 2 doubles match.
Lemon Bay, which has
qualified for the state
tournament each of the
last five seasons, returns
three starters from last
season and several
alternates.
"It's hard to say if we're
better than last season
at this time," said Manta
Rays coach Darrell
Roach. "We have our top
three players back from
last season (Casad was
no. 3 singles player last
season) and I think we're
stronger there, but overall
it's hard to say."

IN THE SPOTLIGHT |


One really big lift ahead


Hobbs hits the
weights with his
football prospects
in the balance
ByZACH MILLER
SPORTS WRITER
PORT CHARLOTTE -While
Jake Hobbs prepares in the
weight room for his senior
weightlifting season, efforts are
being made next door in Jordan
Ingman's office to keep Hobbs'
football career going.
With five Port Charlotte High
School senior football players
already signed with colleges and
two more mulling offers, Ingman
works hard to make Hobbs the
eighth Pirate headed to play
college football. A spreadsheet
sits on Ingman's desk with three
pages worth of junior colleges
he's tried to talk to about Hobbs.
Some are marked with an M,
meaning that he's left a message,
others marked with a T, meaning
he talked to them.
Ingman and his coaching
staff do this for any player they
think has a chance to play
football at the next level. They
compile highlight tapes to send
to schools and contact as many
schools as possible to see if
those teams have a need a Pirate
can meet.
"He takes the reins, honestly,"
Hobbs said about Ingman. "He
does it and I just thank him. He's
a good guy.
"I never really expected to play
college football when we weren't
that good. What happened kind
of snuck up on me."
This reverse recruitment he
does for his players is one aspect
of the football-first culture
Ingman has created during his
two years at Port Charlotte.
The culture extends to

together a week after basketball season
ended. The team will be without Tompkins,
who recently had shoulder surgery.

weightlifting, which is coached
by football defensive line coach
Jarret Debus and has become
an extension of football. Port
Charlotte weightlifters are never
asked to cut weight because that
could hinder them from getting
stronger for football season.
"Everybody buys into the that
philosophy," Ingman said. "Some
of our weightlifting kids run
track, too. In most weightlifting
programs, they don't let their
kids run because it hurts their
lifting. It's well documented
that if a kid is running a bunch
of laps, he's not gonna bench
as much because his chest is


LEMON BAY

COACH: Don Southwell
LAST YEAR: District champion, two state
qualifiers
KEY LOSSES: Yuki Fujii, Alan Borovsky, Lucas

KEY RETURNERS: Eric Smith, Anthony

OUTLOOK: Southwell said the Manta Rays'
goals are to repeat as district champion and
place in the top three at all five invitationals
they compete in.


constantly working. But you've
got to run track to get faster for
football season, so, yes, it's not as
productive in weightlifting, but it
is for football and that's what it's
all about."
If Hobbs can sign with a junior
college for football, weightlifting
will be devoted to helping him
get ready for football season.
Until then, he has aspirations for
his final sports season as a Pirate.
"I'm kind of just doing weight-
lifting for me, I guess that's the
first time I've been doing that,"
Hobbs said. "I want to place in
states and I want to have over
a 600 total this year by the end.


NORTH PORT


COACH: Wayne Skelton
LASTYEAR: third at Sarasota County
championship, no state qualifiers
KEY LOSSES: Devon Gales, Brian Menard,
Santos Martinez, P.J. Swales
KEY RETURNERS: Kawika Barnes, Kyle
Blamberg, David Towers, Roman Morales,
Jake Bennett, Josh Dejesus, Will Glesge,
Anthony Stone
KEY NEWCOMERS: Peter Kunda, Jacob
Johnson, Brandon Caster, Mike MacCormack
OUTLOOK: Skelton said the Bobcats are
aiming to take first at the Sarasota County
championship and qualify at least one lifter
for the state finals.


I think that's pretty do-able, it's
twenty pounds on each."
Hobbs took first at the
Sarasota Invitational last year
and his best lift was 285 in the
clean and jerk and 280 in the
bench press. Hobbs and the
Pirate football team made it to
the regional final last fall, but
he's never made it to states in
either sport.
"I want to go out with a bang,"
he said. "I don't want to just wait
four months before graduating,
I want to do something great
again before I graduate."

Julie Dedrick came in and
hit Morgan Wier with a pitch
to tie the game. Two batters
later, Emily Sims broke the
deadlock with an RBI single.
Naylor made it 4-2 with
another RBI single.
Two batters later, Morgan
smashed a two-out single
in the gap to score two and
break the game open.
"Everybody was pumped
up and I just had the feeling
I could hit something and I
just hit it," Morgan said.
Stewart, Sims and Naylor
had two hits for the Bobcats.
Wier scored twice and drove
in a run.
North Port took a 1-0 lead
in the top of the first on a
Kylie Bell RBI double down
the left field line off Charlotte
starting pitcher Courtney


Sunnarborg.
Charlotte (2-2) battled
back in the bottom of the
second on RBI singles from
Julie Dedrick and Samantha
Burnett to make it 2-1, which
held until the fifth.
The Tarpons outhit North
Port 10-9. Samantha Burnett
had three singles and an RBI.
But it didn't seem like the
same team that won back-
to-back games on the road to
coach Greg Higgins.
"We made mistakes we
haven't made and we'll learn
from them," Higgins said.
"The attitude was different
tonight, not like it has been.
We

Treatment for A-fib

involves rhythm and rate


DEAR DR. ROACH: I
recently was diagnosed
with A-fib and am taking
metoprolol. My cardiologist
also wants me on Xarelto,
which is a blood thinner.
Why is it necessary to
take the blood thinner to
avoid blood clots when
the metoprolol should be
averting the A-fib anyway,
which would cause the
blood pooling and possible
clotting? EL.
ANSWER: Atrial fibril-
lation ('A-fib") is a chaotic
lack of rhythm in the atria
of the heart. This prevents
the coordinated mechanical
motion of the atria the
smaller chambers of the top
of the heart so they no
longer fill the ventricles, the
larger chambers that send
the blood to the lungs (from
the right side of the heart)
and the body (from the left
side). The rate of the ventri-
cles normally is dependent
upon the pacemaker in
the right atrium: In atrial
fibrillation, the ventricular
heart rate can be normal,
too slow or too fast.
The heart rate of most
people with A-fib is too fast,
at least some of the time.
Metoprolol, a beta blocker,
slows the heart rate down
to prevent dangerously
high heart rates. It is pretty
effective at doing so, al-
though people who exercise
may find that their heart
rates can get very high,
and may need a different
medication. People with
A-fib and very slow heart
rates may need an artificial
pacemaker.
Metoprolol does not
restore a normal rhythm
in A-fib. There are medi-
cations, such as flecainide
or amiodarone, which can
convert A-fib into normal
rhythm, though they are
not always effective. The
heart also can be electrically
shocked to try to restore
normal rhythm.
The decision of treating
the heart rate in A-fib
versus treating the rhythm
depends on the individual's
symptoms and is made by
a cardiologist. However,
every person with A-fib
needs careful consideration
of treatment to prevent a
blood clot, since the risk for
stroke can be high. Older
age, female sex and other
vascular issues such
as high blood pressure,
diabetes, peripheral vas-
cular disease, heart failure
and especially a previous
history of blood clot or
stroke are risk factors for
developing a stroke with
A-fib. The anticoagulant
(often inaccurately called
"blood thinner") Xarelto,
like a much older drug,
warfarin (Coumadin),


Dr. Roach

reduce this risk.
Most people with A-fib
need treatment to prevent
blood clot and stroke, and
treatment of either the rate
or the rhythm. If rhythm
control is successful,
anticoagulation may be
stopped later.
The booklet on abnormal
heart rhythms explains
atrial fibrillation and the
more common heart
rhythm disturbances in
greater detail. Readers can
obtain a copy by writing:

DEAR DR. ROACH: My
doctor wants me to get
more vitamin D. Can I use
cod liver oil? I did as a kid.
-VM.
ANSWER: There are
many good food sources
of vitamin D, and cod liver
oil is near the best. A single
tablespoon contains about
1,400 units of vitamin D,
which is as much as almost
anyone needs in a day.
Swordfish and salmon are
excellent sources of vitamin
D as well, with about 500
units in a 3-ounce serving.
DEAR DR. ROACH: My
wife has wet AMD. Her
ophthalmologist gave her
some vitamins (to take
three times a day). They
include 25 mg of zinc oxide.
She has read somewhere
that women should not
take more than 8 mg of
zinc a day. These vitamins
would total 75 mg daily.
Are zinc and zinc oxide the
same? Can she take these
vitamins?-J.N.
ANSWER: The usual dose
of zinc for age-related mac-
ular degeneration is 80 mg
daily of zinc oxide. Twenty-
three percent of zinc oxide
is elemental zinc, so this is
about 18 mg of elemental
zinc. The ophthalmologist
is giving a very standard
and safe dose for AMD.
The U.S. recommended
daily allowance for zinc is
11 mg for men, 8 mg for
women. Very high doses of
zinc can be dangerous, but
this dose is still in the safe
zone.

The order of ordering


Dear Readers: If you
order products online
or by phone, are you
aware of your legal rights?
Sellers can face penal-
ties due to the Federal
Trade Commission's
"Mail/Telephone Order
Merchandise Rule." Here
are some things you
should be aware of so you
don't get taken:
The date the seller
advertises for delivery
of the product is the
date by which it must be
delivered.
If you do not have a
set delivery date, the sell-
er has 30 days to deliver
the item after getting an
order.
Notice must be given
by the seller if the deliv-
ery date will not be met
so that you can cancel
your order for a refund or
agree to a later delivery
date.
Remember to read the
fine print! Heloise

Pet beds
Dear Heloise: I enjoy
your column in The
Winchester (Va.) Star.
With two large dogs, pet
beds are a necessity, but
they can be expensive
- at minimum, $50. We
keep two big dog beds in
the living room.
For nighttime, when the
dogs want to sleep next to
our bed, instead of falling
over a regular dog bed, I
purchased two microfiber
bathmats. They can easily
go into the washer. The

Hints from Heloise

don't fall over them! -
PamW. in Virginia

Warm up first?
Dear Heloise: I have
always heard that you
need to let your car warm
up, after starting it first
thing in the morning,
before driving off. Is this
still the case? Margaret
D., via email
With modern cars,
the answer is no you
don't have to "warm up"
the auto before driving
off! For older cars (say,
before the 1980s), it used
to be the advice because
of the way engines were
designed.
Today, you don't need
to sit in the car "warm-
ing up the engine" and
getting all the oil moving!
You are just wasting gas,
and if your auto is in a ga-
rage, you have a potential
problem with fumes.
The only hint is to start
the car and drive normal-
ly for the first few min-
utes no crazy stopping
and starting. However, if
you still feel you should,
sit there for only three to
five minutes! Heloise

Best friend's past abuse

haunts family gatherings


DEAR ABBY: My best
friend of 20 years, "Claire,"
has suffered bouts of
depression ever since I have
known her. She recently
confided to me that her
brother had repeatedly
sexually abused her as a
child.
When she went to her
mother for help, her mother
told her she needed to
"thank God that it was
happening because it
would make her a stronger
person." Her mother is dead
now, but her father is still
alive. I am furious at him
for allowing the abuse to
happen under his roof.
Abby, the family acts like
it never happened! Claire
invites her dad to events we
plan together like birthdays.
How do I attend knowing
what I know? I don't want to
sit across a table from him.
My husband is an abuse
survivor and feels even
more strongly than I do.
It has made get-togethers
miserable for us. Should we
just smile and pretend we
don't know because we can't
fight my best friend's fight
for her? How do we get over
the anger? CONFUSED
IN OKLAHOMA
DEAR CONFUSED: Years
ago, someone explained
to me that depression is
anger turned inward. Your
friend is enduring these
bouts of depression because
she was never allowed to
express her anger where it
belonged at her brother
and her mother. Whether
the mother ever told her
husband what was going
on, or whether it was the
continuation of a long fam-
ily tradition of sexual abuse,
is something we don't know.
But if you haven't suggested
to Claire that she could
benefit from counseling,
you should.
As to you and your
husband participating in
these family gatherings, my
advice is to stop doing it.
Celebrate special occasions
with your friend right before
or after these occasions;
many people have pre- or
post-birthday get-togethers,
and that's what I recom-
mend in a case like this.
DEAR ABBY: I recently


Dear Abby

became involved with a
longtime female friend
of mine when she was in
town. I have always loved
"Miranda" as a friend, but
now I also feel attracted to
her as a potential perfect
match.
The problem is she lives
far away. We keep in touch
almost daily. I love that, but
it makes me miss her, and I
end up thinking about her
all day, which doesn't help.
She says she has feelings for
me, too, but "the timing isn't
in our favor."
What can I do to go about
my day without letting
thoughts of Miranda rule
my brain? I am 27 and
haven't felt like this about
anyone before. We'll see
each other in a couple
of months and the time
couldn't be crawling by any
slower.
Abby, are long-distance
relationships even worth
trying? --ANXIOUS IN
COLORADO
DEAR ANXIOUS: Of
course they are. As the say-
ing goes, "nothing ventured,
nothing gained." Years ago,
couples who were separated
by distances courted via
the mail. In fact, some
of them wrote beautiful
poetry and love letters that
are classics. (Check out the
letters of Victorian writers
Elizabeth Barrett and
Robert Browning.) Couples
separated by war before the
invention of the Internet
also managed to nurture
relationships that led to
marriage.
So consider yourself
lucky that you and Miranda
can be in touch every day,
even though at this point
it's frustrating. As to the
problem of her dominating
your thoughts all day, a way
to deal with it is to stay busy.


"Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season;
reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doc-
trine."- 2 Timothy 4:2.
It is so easy to get hung up on a production rather
than the simple presentation of the gospel. What is it
that all mankind needs to hear? That we are all sin-
ners, that Jesus Christ is the only Savior, and salvation
is far sure if we will only believe.

Venice Gondolier readers: Look for the puzzle solution in the Our Town section


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're not afraid of
working hard. You've done it before, and you know
that it's worse in your mind than it is in reality. Yes,
the idea of hard work is scarier than the work itself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It feels strange to be
praised for something you did so long ago. And yet,
you can't expect everyone to be up-to-the-minute
with your life, so you'll gladly accept the good will.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The most important task
of the day looms large in your mind, and yet there's


was the most important, anyway? If it wasn't you,
your resistance may be warranted.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Planning will be key to
the final execution ofyour project. But too much
planning is a danger, as the plan takes up so much
energy that there's little left for the execution itself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Love is distracting, especially
if it's new and unexplored. Your heart, body and
mind are eager for discovery. How far to take this
and when to rein it in will be the main questions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).You can work solo for


prefer to work alone now. A deep and abiding
respect and love foryourselfwill carry you through.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The role you play in a
person's life will be greatly amplified if that person
happens to be a child.Theyoung, inexperienced and
impressionable need a positive example.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).The fearlessness you
show through your physical body is experienced
in your emotional body as excitement. You'll make
several decisions very quickly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).Thejob on the


and a different skill set from the oneyou currently
possess. Don't let that stop you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.19).What'stheuseof
doing good work if nobody sees it?You don't like to
promote yourself, but you'll be doing the world a
disservice if you don't show what you've been up to.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People only lie when
they are afraid.There's someone who isn't being
totally truthful with you. Think about what this
person is afraid of. You'll get the truth.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Are the lines in the road


something you'd rather be doing.Well, who said it hours and hours and never get lonely. In fact, you


is reflected in the way you navigate the road of a
relationship. Under what circumstances would you
dare to cross the lines?
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 11). The ground rules
you establish with family, which include an environ-
mentof mutual respect and support, are upheld
beautifully this year. March brings excitement and
travel. April advances your role in a project that has
the potential to help many in your community.The
most romantic times are May and September. Pisces
and Gemini people adore you.Your lucky numbers
are:34,1,22,24and 17.

Opening lead: Queen of 0

South was stretching when he bid
two hearts many would have
settled for one no trump. North had
an awkward re-bid and chose to bid
his three-card diamond fragment,
which allowed South to show his
sixth heart. North's battery of prime
cards demanded bravery, and he
leaped boldly to slam. Could South
make it?
South won the opening diamond
lead in dummy, cashed the ace of
trumps and played a trump to his


jack. No luck. West won the trump
queen and continued diamonds.
Declarer ruffed this in hand, drew the
remaining trump, and ran the queen
of spades. No luck there either and
the contract went down one.
Declarer was unlucky to have both
major-suit finesses lose, but he did
not take the best line of play. It may
seem as though the given play, one
out of two finesses, is 75 percent, but
it is really much less. Two 4-1 breaks
might well defeat the slam even if
both missing honors are "onside." As
long as the majors split 3-2, as here,
the location of the missing honors is
not relevant.
South should have cashed the king
of diamonds at trick two, discarding a
spade from his hand, and then played
ace of spades and ruffed a spade.
Now the king of hearts followed by a
heart to the ace in order to ruff
another spade. With the queen of
hearts falling doubleton, this line
yields all 13 tricks after South draws
the last trump. Had the trump queen
not fallen, declarer could concede a
trick to it right now and later discard
his club losers on dummy's good
spades.

Seven years ago, I spent a beautiful June morning above the Intracoastal Waterway and wrote a column about the people who tend drawbridges. The bridge-tenders liked their job. It didnt pay a lot, but it had perks: the view, the peace and quiet. As it turned out, though, it wasnt always so peaceful. Two weeks after the column, I was called back to the bridge on Manasota Key Road in Englewood. What had happened was this: At around 11:30 p.m. on a Thursday night, bridge tender Jerry Reed saw some teenagers at the railing. Four boys and a girl. Jumpers. Two leapt off the bridge and into the ICW. So Reed came out seeing that bridge-jumping is illegal and told the kids to stop. But they didnt run off, as kids usually do. One guy got really upset, Reed told me the day later. I was getting ready to go back to the building and thats when he hit me. Two boys beat him and left him bloody and lying on the walkway. After they walked off, one came back on a bicycle and kicked Reed in the head. The bridge tender ended up at the Venice hospital with a broken jaw and a damaged left eye. He was never able to work again. As for the assailants, deputies thought they knew who did it, but they lacked evidence. Reed could never make a positive ID from yearbook photos. The company that operates the bridges offered a $1,000 reward, but nothing came of it. So the case, such as it was, quickly went cold. Jerry Reed died at Englewood Community Hospital last December at age 76. He had never fully recovered from his injuries, never shook the headaches. He was in constant pain and his quality of life was diminished, and any of the things he liked to do he could no longer do, longtime friend and companion Janet Clark said last week. Reed was from Oklahoma and moved to Englewood in the 1950s. He worked at a local screening company, then opened JRs Cafe in the Lemon Bay Plaza. Clark worked for him there and the two later lived together for years. She stopped by last week to say that a memorial service would be held at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Englewood Eagles Club on Old Englewood Road. The service is just a formality, more or less, she said. It wont be long, but its just something that we should do for him. She added, He was a good man. He was a very appreciative man and people liked him because he was such a good person. I just dont know how to say it. Somewhere out there are a handful of people no longer kids who knew who did what to Reed that night. They never came clean. They never paid for their crime or had to apologize to Reed, his family and friends. Presumably, though, they still carry the knowledge of their actions and, hopefully, the weight of that knowledge increases with time. Purgatory can be hell. People should know he suffered and no one was ... Clark told me, unable to complete her sentence. Do the kids who are now grown know how much they hurt someone and how much they affected his life, how much it changed what he could and couldnt do? They made his life hellish, too.

However, there is not much they can do about the popular mud park located on Bermont Road east of Punta Gorda, where a woman was stabbed and another woman riding an all-terrain vehicle was struck by a pickup Saturday night. Redneck Yacht Club has been around for about 10 years now, said Shaun Cullinan, a planning and zoning ofcial with Charlotte County. It was a special exception in the agricultural zoning district. He said the county imposed about a half a dozen very basic conditions on the 800-acre mud park, such as landscaping to protect the adjacent properties and hours of operation. It was new to the county and new to this area, so they did the best they could back then, said Cullinan. No one knew it would be like this. ... Weve Mud parks woesBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITER County concerned about safetyWOES | 6 Whats cooking? SUN PHOTO BY SUE PAQUINA buyers barbecue was held at the Charlotte County Fair on Saturday afternoon. People bidding on the animals that were shown at the fair by students from Future Farmers of America and 4-H Clubs enjoyed a buet lunch served by the students. Marty Nantz, whose children and now grandchildren have been involved in the agricultural programs, has volunteered for 30 years. See more photos on page 12.New foreclosure lings for the month of January are drastically down from a year ago, a sign that Southwest Floridas housing market continues its strong forward momentum. According to the Charlotte County Clerk of Courts, the number of new lis pendens led last month totaled 80 compared to 181 in January 2013. In December, Charlotte County recorded 77. A lis pendens is a notice of legal action that typically begins the foreclosure process. The action puts the borrower on notice that a lender may move ahead with foreclosure proceedings if the parties fail to reach an agreement. Given the current backlog of cases, it can take up to two years for a foreclosure to wind its way through the court system. At the height of the foreclosure crisis between 2007 and 2009, the court system was inundated with thousands of les that resulted in thousands of homes sold at auction. Now, banks are more willing and have the wherewithal to process short sales rather than move forward with an actual foreclosure, said John Bockin, president of the Punta Gorda-Port Charlotte-North Port Association of Realtors. Its amazing how little (foreclosures) are out there, he said. In the last 24 months, short sales have become easier to process with fewer homes actually making it to the auction block, he said. A short sale is a real estate Foreclosures continue downward trendBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITER SteveBAUMANNCOLUMNISTLIFE STORIES HESS GULF COVE Charlotte County is considering allowing weekend paintball games on an undeveloped 132-acre park property in Gulf Cove. Members of the nonmandatory Property Owners Association of Gulf Cove will learn tonight about staging paintball games in the countys undeveloped Myakka River Park, located at Gallagher Boulevard and Spire Street. The property also borders the Myakka River. Mike Koening, county parks and recreation resource coordinator, said Allstar Action Sports owner Jim Senseman approached the county about staging games on county property. If approved, the paintball games will be limited from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. This would be a recreational opportunity for an alternative sport, Koenig said. Senseman would have to enter into an agreement with the county like any other seasonal vendor.County to consider paintball playBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER PAINTBALL IN GULF COVE MEETINGThe Property Owners Associa tion of Gulf Cove will discuss Char lotte County allowing weekend paintball games on an undevel oped property in Gulf Cove.

Notice to Calendar Event Submitters Local author Dedeth Fords true personal love story, Life of Love for Atema and Atepa, inspired a recent event to raise funds for two charities very close to her heart. Ford grew up in the Philippines. Her smalltown farming family was not wealthy. It was a hard life. They planted rice in a muddy field, cooked their food using firewood, washed their clothes by hand, and had no indoor plumbing. With support from her parents and lots of hard work, Ford was able to graduate from college in 1981. Her career began in re-forestation and managing her uncles dry goods business. In 1987, Ford placed her photo and information in a magazine. Her late husband, Patrick, who lived in Colorado, was intrigued by her profile and initiated a long-distance penpal relationship. Ford said she fell in love just reading his letters. As our writing continued, Ford said, our relationship began to grow. Two people from opposite sides of the earth with contrasting cultures and a great age difference developed a unique and strong relationship simply by writing letters to one another. Patrick proposed, traveled to the Philippines in 1988, and brought his new bride back to the United States. The Fords, and their daughter, Phaedra, eventually ended up in Port Charlotte, where Dedeth works as a dental assistant and pursues her writing. When Patrick (Atepa) passed away Dedeth (Atema) decided to honor her late husband by sharing their letters and memories in her book, and dedicate the prots to Mahayag Elementary School in her native Philippines. Sherry Mearns, charity event organizer, said, Dedeth credits her education with helping her gain the skills and confidence to become a successful young woman. Thats one reason she wants to help the school, which is in need of a clinic for its nearly 550 students and 14 teachers. In Patricks letters, Ford said, he told me about his dreams of someday helping those children so that they would be able to receive medical care. Most of the children in that village have never even seen a doctor or been to a clinic. The deadly ty phoon in November has exacerbated an already desperate situation. We should all keep the people of the Philippines in our prayers. In addition to her passion for helping in the Philippines, Ford, a proud pet owner and animal lover, has decided to add the Charlotte County Animal Welfare League to her fundraising efforts. The nonprofit organization provides temporary homes, medical services, and caring attention to countless dogs, cats and other animals. Ford held a special book-signing event Sunday at the Charlotte County Cultural Center. Attendees brought their own books for Ford to sign, or purchased copies at the event. The book-signing was followed by dinner, giveaways and enter tainment provided by local singer/songwriter Michael Hirst and his wife, Donna. We have met our financial goal to build the clinic, Ford said. But funds are always needed there, as well as at the Animal Welfare League. Local author shares the loveBy CAROL BRUYERESUN CORRESPONDENTHOW TO HELPIf you missed the event, you may still purchase copies of the book, or donate to either charity in honor of the author and her late husband. You may purchase a copy of the book at Books-a-Million, 1825 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte, 941-629-0340, or online at Amazon.com e-books.

They started working with people and so many more short sales started to go through than in prior years, he said. In Sarasota County, the numbers appear to follow a similar trend. The Sarasota County Clerk of Courts reported 194 new lings in January, up slightly from the 183 reported in December. Still, thats nearly half the 356 cases reported in January 2013, according to ofcial records. Last year, the Florida legislature passed a bill that committed about $21.2 million to the state court system for technology solutions and resources to speed up foreclosure cases that have been lingering for years and reduce the pending foreclosure-case backlog. Florida received about $200 million as part of a $25 billion settlement between attorneys general across the country and ve of the nations major lenders who were linked to foreclosure abuses during the infamous robo-signing ontroversy. Still, local Realtors and housing experts say the worst of the foreclosure woes are over, as home sales and median sale prices continue to gain momentum. Across the state and region, inventory levels are the lowest theyve been in years, as demand outpaces supply. In some areas bidding wars are even happening, as more buyers with cash in hand re-enter the market. I have a cash investor who hasnt been able to nd anything in seven or eight months. He nally had to buy a lot and build, Bockin said. Inventory is incredibly tight right now.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comTRENDFROM PAGE 1 Its not going to be a full run of the property, Koenig said.

Actually, the paintballs are made of gelatin-based material and food coloring. Both Koenig and Senseman said the material is biodegradable and poses no threat to wildlife. Senseman said his activities are geared for family birthday parties and church groups with 20 to 40 participants. The activities are designed so that residents wont know we are even there. The impacts arent great impacts, Senseman said. Its very organized and professional. POAGC president Becky Wirth said the association has not taken an ofcial position, and tonights meeting, she said, is an informational meeting to take the pulse of the community. However, the POAGC has received emails from members with concerns, Wirth said. Among those concerns, she said members questioned holding paintball games on a property known to be inhabited by gopher tortoises and Florida scrub jays. The association members also are concerned about the possibility of increased trafc on residential roads to the property, whether there will be extra Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce patrols and whether any contingency plans have been considered. Koenig wanted to assure residents that county staff is working diligently to protect their neighborhood as well as the environment, while still providing supervised recreational activities for all to enjoy.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comPAINTBALLFROM PAGE 1 learned a lot. Rob White, RYCs vendor coordinator, answered the phone Monday at RYC and declined comment, but told the Sun somebody would sent a prepared statement about the weekend incidents. The Sun never received one. Jessica Hess, 19, of Riverview, Fla., was arrested at the park and charged with aggravated battery using a deadly weapon for allegedly stabbing a woman multiple times Saturday night. According to the report, Hess went after another female who was hanging out with Hess ex-boy friend during the parks fth annual Mud Bash. A bystander, Amy Rachel, 22, tried to break up the ght and was stabbed ve times in the abdomen with a 3-inch knife, authorities said. A witness told deputies Hess said to Rachel, I hope you die. Hess was released Sunday from the Charlotte County Jail on $25,000 bond. Also on Saturday night, a young woman was left in serious condition after an ATV she was riding on with her boyfriend collided head-on with a pickup, according to Charlotte County Fire/EMS spokeswoman Dee HawkinsGarland. Ofcials did not release her name. Lee Memorial ofcials would not comment on her condition Monday. These are the latest in a series of incidents that have drawn criticism from local ofcials. In March 2013, a man stole a truck at the park and rammed it through the front gate before security personnel chased him down and pepper-sprayed him. In 2012, a teenage girl had her car crushed by a man driving a camouaged van outtted with 5-foot tires. In 2011, a man was seriously injured after a group of about 20 jumped him and beat him with a metal pipe. There have been over 250 EMS-related 911 calls to RYC since 2009, and six ambulances were sent to the site on Friday and Saturday, according to Hawkins-Garland. Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce spokeswoman Debbie Bowe said, from Feb. 1, 2013, until today, there were a total of 331 calls for service to the RYCs Bermont Road address, but the CCSO could not comment further. The county now includes more conditions on projects similar to RYC. For instance, Tracks and Trails a huge outdoor concert and recreational vehicle facility being built east of Punta Gorda has around 25 conditions placed on it by the county, Cullinan said. Although there are no issues expected from the site, the county is playing it safe, literally. For Tracks and Trails, we have put in place about four times the conditions mostly dealing with health and safety after seeing whats been going on at Redneck Yacht Club, he said. That includes a helicopter landing pad and a lane for emergency vehicles, for example. But ofcials say their hands are tied when it comes to the RYC. Once an establishment is awarded a special exception to operate, the conditions put forth by the county are set until a year after the establishment stops operating, Cullinan said. Furthermore, the conditions cannot be altered unless the establishment wishes to make modications to its site. Theres not a lot we can really do to (RYC) and make them change their conditions, said Cullinan, who added that the mud parks management has been responsive to the countys concerns.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comWOESFROM PAGE 1 PUNTA GORDA Professor Tonia East typically discusses the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.s iconic I Have a Dream speech during her speech class every year. However, this year she opted to open the discussion to all students at Edison State College during Black History Month so everyone could nd out why the speech is considered one of the most powerful ever delivered. King delivered the speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in the summer of 1963, and it still resonates with people today over a half-century later, East said. East, a speech professor at the college, believes Kings oratory is one of the greatest speeches of all time. The speech, given during the March on Washington, D.C., called for an end to racism in the U.S. East didnt just touch on the speechs historic signicance. She also discussed some of the aspects of what made the speech so great. As a professor, I really want the students to take away a greater understanding of speech and what makes a great speaker, she said. However, East added that she also wanted to impart the historical context in which the speech was given. As a college student, they should have a general knowledge of our history, she said. There just are some things that you should know as an educated person. Little known is that King improvised the I Have a Dream portion of the speech after talking to famous American gospel singer Mahalia Jackson. Jackson performed before King took to the podium to address one of the largest crowds to ever gather on the National Mall. I didnt know about how that part was improvised, said student Stefania Adjei. Adjei, who is obtaining her associate degree from the school, is currently taking a public speaking class at the college. She believes watching the speech, and discussing it with the students and East, will help her become a better public speaker. I think I learned about what makes a good speech Adjei, 20, of Port Charlotte, said. East pointed out that King, a Baptist minister, was a practiced orator who utilized tools like strong metaphors and repetition to get his message across. King also drew comparisons to the struggles of the 1950s and 1960s to the trials black men and women endured in the 1800s. He brought up the fact that his speech, given on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, was taking place on hallowed ground. Jonathan Rivera, 31, was impressed with the presentation. Rivera, a business administration student at the college, will be called upon often to speak publicly in his chosen profession, he said. He believes speech classes, along with watching good examples of the craft, will help him become a better public speaker. Rivera had also never before seen the I Have a Dream speech from beginning to end. People always hear about the speech, and they may have seen parts of it, but a lot of people probably havent really seen it, he said. East believes that the presentation was a successful one, and that she will likely continue to open the discussion to all students in the years to come.A closer look at a historic speechBy PAUL FALLONSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTO BY PAUL FALLONTonia East, pictured here in her oce at the college, believes the Rev.

The Sun /Tuesday, February 11, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS In order to better protect its customers, Charlotte State Bank & Trust recently introduced a debit card alert system to combat fraud. And the bank isnt the only nancial institution offering a service that allows customers to sign up for text message alerts notifying them of purchases made using their debit card, said Ken ODonnell, executive vice president and Florida market president for Busey Bank. A lot of banks have gone to text message alerts as an additional service to their clients, ODonnell said. The Charlotte State Bank & Trust system has recently been rolled out to the public. It is free to all bank customers, said Don Martin, marketing director. Customers can sign up for different levels of service. We encourage all of our customers to sign up for this, Martin said. One level: Customers can sign up to be notied of a debit card purchase. The system can also alert customers if someone uses the card and signs a receipt for a credit purchase. This is real time, so customers get their notications immediately, Martin said. There isnt a delay. Customers can also name their checking accounts so they know which one is being accessed when the text message notication is sent. This is simply a proactive step taken by the company to protect its customers. We do whatever we can to protect our customers from fraud, he said. We take our job very seriously. The system was rolled out about three weeks ago and customers can sign up for the service at the bank branch. Charlotte State Bank & Trust isnt the only nancial institution taking steps to prevent debit card fraud. Busey Bank has had a system notifying customers of transactions via text message in place for sever al weeks, ODonnell said. The banks system can notify customers when their account balance drops below a certain point and it can also send the individual their last ve transactions via text message, he said. This is another way to protect our customers, ODonnell said. And the customers seem to be embracing this. The service will also allow the customer to set up a time and day when they wish to have their transactions texted to their phone, he said. If they want their transactions sent to their phone every Friday at 3 in the afternoon, we can set it up so they get their last ve transactions sent to their phone every Friday at 3 in the afternoon, ODonnell added. Wells Fargo will also send alerts about transactions to three email addresses and one mobile device, said Kris Dahl, communications consultant. These alerts can notify customers of a variety of account activity, including when their balance is above or below a certain amount, when a purchase exceeds a certain amount or when their daily ATM withdrawals and debit card purchases exceed a certain amount, Dahl said in a written statement. The representatives from all three banks stressed that customers can be one of the best weapons in the war against fraud. Customers should always keep a close eye on their account balances and report suspicious activity immediately, ODonnell said. The earlier we can be informed the better it is for everyone, he said.Charlotte State Bank & Trust steps up fraud fightBy PAUL FALLONSUN CORRESPONDENT Do your pets want to get married for Valentines Day? Or are they just irting with the idea? Owners can nd out by entering their pet couples into the lovers lane pet couple contest, where pairs of pets can compete to be married on the spot. Spectators are welcome, too, because they will vote to choose the pair of dogs that love each other most. Theres certain dogs that just love each other, said Lynda LaPlante, owner of PAC Paws and Claws a pet store that carries specialty health items and organizes pet events like this one. The actual lovers lane runway show is the highlight, LaPlante said. The wedding is kind of the icing on the cake. The event will take place at 2 p.m. Saturday at PAC, 395 W. Dearborn St., Englewood. LaPlante said the contestants are usually four or ve dog couples, but cats are invited too. You never know it could be a dog and a cat. The runway contest will take place on an 18-foot elevated platform, LaPlante said, which pet couples walk down together, making three stops. At the rst stop, the owner introduces each of the pets. At the second, the pet couple needs to prove theyre in love. The owner will give the pets a treat or toy to share that will produce a show of affection. At the end of the runway, the third stop, the owners will explain why their pet couple love each other most. After the runway show, the audience will vote on the couple that will get married. People seem to get a kick out of the wedding ceremony, too, which will be performed by LaPlantes brother, Donny. Its the same vows, but the promises are pet-adapted. Its really entertaining and people are having a terric time, LaPlante said. In this case, it will include vows promising things like sharing toys and treats. We (put) bling bling bracelets (on the dogs) instead of rings, LaPlante said. Once the marriage certicates are signed, the wedding reception begins. The newlyweds dance, and cake is served a doggie cake for dogs and a normal cake for the people with refreshments. (A wedding) is an event weve all been to, said LaPlante. And to see it be adapted for pets is interesting.

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, February 11, 2014 Expanding trail system in the regionOUR POSITION: North Port needs a link to the regions bike trail system.Kudos to local bicycle advocates who are campaigning for a low-cost, low-impact system of trails that will improve recreational options, provide more access to conservation lands and create new connections between communities in our region. Its an outstanding grassroots effort and one that has received support and encouragement, thankfully, from local governments. When it comes to parks and trails, our position has always been straightforward: You cant have too much of a good thing. In this case, more is clearly better. The latest trail proposal is relatively modest. It draws on ideas included in Sarasota Countys Trails Master Plan. Two Venice residents Steve Christian and Gregory Vine have taken lead roles in the local campaign to create a 32.5-mile bike loop on existing paved and unpaved surfaces in Venice and North Port. There are two key segments. The first would create a connection through the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in North Port to an unpaved powerline road in the Carlton RanchCarlton Preserve tracts. A series of roads south and west would take bikers to the Legacy Trail in Nokomis. From there, they might head north to Sarasota or south into Venice and onto the 10-mile Venetian Waterway Park Trail. In the second segment of the proposed loop, bikers could travel on paved roads into Deer Prairie Creek Preserve, another of the properties set aside in Sarasota Countys Environmentally Sensitive Lands Protection Program. Bikers could ride a trail to U.S. 41 and take a series of roads back through North Port to the Myakkahatchee Creek Park. Loop completed. Christian and Vine figure two bridges are needed to create the loop. The first is at the city park, the second in Deer Prairie Creek. The good news is that North Port already has designated $200,000 for the Myakkahatchee bridge; Sarasota County is now looking for funds to share project costs. The second bridge will come later, presumably. We wholeheartedly support this and other efforts to create better trail networks throughout the region. Not only would this trail connect communities, it would create access from North Port to the vast preserved lands in Sarasota County. It would enhance options for eco-tourism and outdoor recreation. Were excited to see the system grow. Punta Gorda Pathways now includes 18 miles of hiking and biking trails. The Cape HazePioneer Trail runs eight miles parallel to Gasparilla Road on Cape Haze. Sarasota County is investigating the possibility of extending the Legacy Trail from Palmer Ranch to downtown Sarasota. And another of Christians proposals would create an off-road link from North Port through the Myakka State Forest to Englewood. The more the better. Years from now, we expect to see safe trail links from Punta Gorda north to Sarasota, from North Port west to Englewood. To get it done will take the continued efforts of local volunteers, as well as the support of local governments. We have no doubt these trails will become signature assets of our region.Tired, angry, discouragedEditor: If we are going to pay unemployment, subsidize health insurance, provide food stamps and give earned income tax credits to the poor folks, and then we are going to make it nancially benecial to 2.3 million middle-class workers to cut back to part time, why in the world are the rest of us working our butts off? It is absolutely beyond comprehension that there are still a few of us who have enough pride and self-respect to try to support ourselves and our families. Frankly, Im tired, angry and discouraged. Im tired. Tired of beating myself up while I see capable people wandering the streets. Im angry that my government thinks that for some reason I am responsible for those whom the government has hooked on being dependent. And I am discouraged that there seems to be no hope of things getting any better.Victoria Vaughn EnglewoodSunshine Lake may still be uncleanEditor: A recent letter to the edi tor makes me wonder how much damage those toxins in Sunshine Lake have caused. The writer must have been drinking the water! Is this lake and waterway clean of all algae? Really? If not completely free of algae, regrowth will burst forth. Have these bodies of water been retested by Atkins, who claimed that this was the worst theyd seen? This letter writer appeared to indicate that the problem has been alleviated, yet no one even knows what is causing this toxic cyanobacteria to grow, nor has the county xed the water level problem which may have prevented this disaster years ago for a fraction of the price and without the suffering. The sewer pipes and the malfunctioning lift station havent been replaced. It seems the commissioners are too busy spending millions on destroy ing another body of water. The letter writer claims that nobody knew how much debris was in the water. The county administration should have found out how much debris existed before taking bids. This gentleman is misinformed as to our countrys foundations. We have a Republican form of government with a Constitution that protects the majority and the minority, not mob rule. The Team Port Charlotte member contradicts himself through his own actions. He is part of the leader ship of Team Port Charlotte, an extremely small minority that, with the help of Commissioner Duffy, rammed down the throats of the majority, an unwanted, wasteful, $35 million beautication project.Jim Clear Port CharlotteThought it was April Fools DayEditor: I was hoping that my calendar was wrong the other day and it wasnt Feb. 4 but really April 1 (April Fools Day), or at the very least the Sun had gotten their information wrong and Ms. Cook hadnt seriously suggested that North Port should be given Little Salt Springs. Isnt it bad enough that three of our city commissioners are responsible for destroying Warm Mineral Springs? Now they want another chance to ruin an irreplaceable natural resource known around the world. Will they open it up for swimming? How about cave diving? How about a concession stand and portable toilets? Is there no end to their hubris?Beth Hornick North PortLetters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

I live on the corner and have seen rsthand how drivers abuse this intersection and how many people have been seriously injured or died. I also hear and see the near-misses that occur daily. So Councilwoman Carolyn Freeland should re-think her opinion and not just move on. People are getting hurt on the corner of Shreve and Olympia and we must do something about it. My suggestions are to add signs on Shreve (Marion and Olympia) saying Cross Trafc Does not Stop. I have seen folks pull up to that stop sign. look at oncoming trafc as if they are going to stop too, and then proceed into the intersection causing a crash. That happens a lot at this intersection. Trafc along Olympia and Shreve moves at a swift pace and must be slowed down. Never as many accidents when a Punta Gorda squad car with radar sits on the side of the road. My last suggestion is a trafc light. That seems like the only thing that will really slow them down and make us all a little safer. Slow down: Youre in Punta Gorda.James T. Merrick Punta GordaThanks from Wildlife CenterEditor: The volunteers, staff and Board of Directors at Peace River Wildlife Center would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Beyond Ourselves, a PGI Civic Association community service organization. Throughout the year this dedicated group of volunteers collect wish list items and aluminum cans to help us continue our mission of caring for Floridas native wildlife. Recently, Beyond Ourselves organized and hosted an amazing fundraiser, Fashionable Visits to Upton Abbey, a fashion show featuring vintage creations. The event was rst-class and fun from start to nish. Thank you, again, to all the seless, hard-working individuals, business sponsors and rafe basket donors who made this show such a success.Lorraine Anderson Punta GordaSeabees did not massacre womenEditor: Lets set the record straight. U.S. Navy Seabees have never and will never (I hope) massacre women and children. The two-part article that appeared in the Jan. 27 and Feb. 3 Sun newspaper is totally false. All the events listed are totally incorrect. First off, Mobile Construction Reserve Battalion 12 was inactive during the dates referred to. Next, Navy Seabees are U.S. Navy, and did not attend Marine boot camp. Navy mobile construction battalions do not have tanks. Nor are they assigned the weapons referred to. Navy Seabees have a proud tradition of providing construction support to all other branches of the military around the world. This was especially evident in Vietnam. Many construction battalions and smaller units built runways, entire military cities and recreational areas throughout Vietnam, several within two miles of the DMZ. Back to the article, I can nd nothing in either segment to support that the tale has any merit. My qualications to question this? Twenty years in the U.S. Navy Seabees 1961-1981, seven tours in Vietnam of various lengths. Honorable discharge with numerous citations and ribbons with gold and bronze stars and a Navy commendation medal. Think the last few paragraphs pretty well sum up the reason for the fabricated story. Hes looking for nancial assistance. Whatever you do, do not give this imposter anything.Robert Meatty Port CharlotteSuper speeder pays extra ne?Editor: Have you or any of your readers ever been exposed to what we call legitimate extortion? I state my case: On Oct. 30 my husband was issued (and deserved) a speeding ticket in Hihara, Ga. The ofcer, a most polite and smiling individual, did not succumb to my husbands plea of, Ive been driving for 60 years and this is the rst ticket Ive ever received. And please note on my Florida license that I am listed as a safe driver. According to the instructions on the citation, we called the Hihara Municipal Court a week later and was told the ne for going 83 miles per hour in a 70 mph area was $225. While we thought this was somewhat exorbitant, we paid the ne. End of story, right? No! The last week in January we received a notice from the state of Georgia stating that since my husband is considered a super speeder, an additional $200 must be mailed by May 1, 2014, or his license would be revoked. Is this considered double dipping, or, again, legitimate extortion or is it just a plain rip-off?Betty Mgrditchian EnglewoodUnfair to typecast peopleEditor: My letter is in response to, Typecasting and proud of it, regarding The Affordable Care Act and part-time employment. I agree that there will always be people who will take advantage and not help themselves. However, it is unfair to typecast everyone who is employed part time. In particular, I am referring to the older worker that has been laid off. It is not unusual for the older worker to have a difcult time nding full-time employment and many have had to accept a part-time job (if they can nd one). This situation is especially difcult for the older worker who has not reached age 65 to qualify for Medicare. There is plenty of data on this.Barbara Underwood Port Charlotte 82014{ MRC. y Kung F IfVT\D' at.by Ing Fcatures

The Sun /Tuesday, February 11, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT Late last week, Tim Armstrong, the chief executive ofcer of AOL, landed himself in a media restorm when he held a town hall with employees to explain why he was paring their retirement benets. After initially blaming Obamacare for driving up the companys health care costs, he pointed the nger at an unlikely target: babies. Specically, my baby. Two things that happened in 2012, Armstrong said. We had two AOL-ers that had distressed babies that were born that we paid a million dollars each to make sure those babies were OK in general. And those are the things that add up into our benets cost. So when we had the nal decision about what benets to cut because of the increased health care costs, we made the decision, and I made the decision, to basically change the 401(k) plan. Within hours, that quote was all over the Internet. On Friday, Armstrongs logic was the subject of lengthy discussions on CNN, MSNBC and other outlets. Mothers advocates scolded him for gross insensitivity. Lawyers debated whether he had violated his employees privacy. Health care experts noted that his accounting of these million-dollar babies seemed, at best, fuzzy. The phrase distressed babies became practically an inside joke, as in, How many distressed babies does AOL pay this guy? A few AOL employees made cracks like this: I swear I didnt have any babies in 2012. Dont hate me for messing up your 401(k). For the record: It was me. I dont work for AOL; my husband does. One of those distressed babies was our daughter. We pay our premiums for a family health plan through AOL, which is why we had coverage on the morning I woke up in acute pain, only ve months into what had been a completely smooth pregnancy. Late Saturday, Armstrong nally issued an apology in an email to employees: On a personal note, I made a mistake and I apologize for my comments last week at the town hall when I mentioned specic health care examples. He also announced that he would restore the old retirement savings plan. This is commendable, but the damage to my family had already been done.Life vs. CostsHere is how we supposedly became a drain on AOLs coffers. On Oct. 9, 2012, when I woke up in pain, my husband was at the airport about to board a ight for a work trip. I was home alone with our 1-year-old son and barely able to comprehend that I could be in labor. By the time I arrived at the hospital, my husband a few minutes behind, I was fully dilated and my babys heartbeat was slowing. Within 20 minutes, my daughter was delivered via emergency Cesarean, resuscitated and placed in the neonatal intensive care unit. She weighed 1 pound, 9 ounces. Her skin was reddish-purple, bloody and bruised all over. One doctor, visibly shaken, described it as gelatinous. I couldnt hold my daughter or nurse her or hear her cries, which were silenced by the ventilator. Without it, she couldnt breathe. That day, we were told that she had roughly a one-third chance of dying before we could bring her home. That she might not survive one month or one week or one day. She also had at least a one-third chance of being severely disabled, unable to ever lead an independent life. As shell-shocked and stricken as we were, my husband and I were not oblivious to the staggering tolls, emotional and nancial, attached to a baby like ours. Watching her tiny, battered body struggle to carry out the simplest functions, we couldnt help wondering at what point the level of her suffering might outweigh the imperative to keep her alive at all costs. For longer than I can bear to remember, we were too terried to name her, to know her, to love her. In my lowest moments when she suffered a brain hemorrhage, when her right lung collapsed, when she stopped breathing altogether one morning I found myself wishing that I could simply mourn her loss and go home to take care of my strapping, exuberant, fat-cheeked son.An Amazing FightBut the neonatologists also described my daughter as feisty and amazing. And over the next weeks, she fought for every minute of her young life, as did her doctors and nurses, and we could only strive to do the same. My daughter had to spend three months in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), dependent on many high-tech medical apparatuses and round-the-clock care. She endured more procedures than I can count. Some commentators have questioned the implausibility of million-dollar babies. I have no expertise in health care costs, but I have a 3-inch thick folder of hospital bills that range from a few dollars to the high six gures (before insurance adjustments). So even though its unlikely that AOL directly paid out those sums, I dont take issue with Armstrongs number. I take issue with how he reduced my daughter to a distressed baby who cost the company too much money. How he blamed the saving of her life for his decision to scale back employee benets. How he exposed the most searing experience of our lives, one that my husband and I still struggle to discuss with anyone but each other, for no other purpose than an absurd justication for corporate cost-cutting.Failed as Mother?On Thursday, within minutes of Armstrongs utterance, my husband began elding questions from colleagues: Wasnt the CEO talking about his baby? He struggled to grasp that the baby behind the headlines was our daughter. At home with our daughter, I found myself again unable to look at her without recalling her clinging to life support. Since her arrival, Ive rarely been free from some form of torment over her premature birth. The months of pumping breast milk for a baby who might not live to drink it. The anxieties about every milestone: Will she smile? Will she lift her head? Will she crawl, talk, sing? The torturous thoughts of what I might have done wrong during my brief pregnancy, how I might have failed her as her mother. Because the day of her birth was the furthest thing from a happy event, because so many of her rst days were lived under the specter of death, Ive never had the luxury of taking her presence for granted. Every time she wakes with a dazzling smile and goes to sleep with her soft head against my shoulder feels like a wonder. It can be a struggle to set aside my lingering trauma amid the daily realities of coordinating her care to simply celebrate the erce, beautiful girl who has completed our family. All of which made the implication from Armstrong that the saving of her life was an extravagant option, an oversize burden on the company bottom line, feel like a cruel violation, no less brutal for the ludicrousness of his contention.Call Out Cancer?Lets set aside the fact that Armstrong who took home $12 million in pay in 2012 felt the need to announce a cut in employee benets on the very day that he touted the best quarterly earnings in years. For me and my husband who have been genuinely grateful for AOLs benets, which are actually quite generous the hardest thing to bear has been the whiff of judgment in Armstrongs statement, as if we selshly gobbled up an obscenely large slice of the collective health care pie. Yes, we had a preemie in intensive care. This was certainly not our intention. While hes at it, why not call out the women who got cancer? The parents of kids with asthma? These rank among the nations most expensive medical conditions. Would anyone dare to single out these people for simply availing themselves of their health benets? Once the blowback started, Armstrong issued an internal memo not an apology that sought to clarify how he had mentioned high-risk pregnancy as just one of many examples of how our company supports families when they are in need. Then he urged employees, Lets move forward together as a team. But there was nothing high-risk about my pregnancy. I never had a single risk factor for a preterm birth, let alone one as extreme as this one. Until the morning I woke up in labor, every exam indicated that our daughter was perfectly healthy. In fact, had signs of trouble emerged, such as bleeding or pre-eclampsia, the doctors would have had the chance to mitigate the danger, administering steroids to speed up her lung development or hormones to delay labor. Instead, even with the best medical care available, we had no warnings, and we will never have an explanation for what went wrong. This is why the head neonatologist referred matter-of-factly to our daughters birth as catastrophic. In other words, we experienced exactly the kind of unforeseeable, unpreventable medical crisis that any health plan is supposed to cover. Isnt that the whole point of health insurance?The Miracle BabyThese days, at the age of 1, my daughter is nothing short of a mir acle, which is to say, she appears much like any healthy baby. This past week has been eventful for her. Right around when Tim Armstrong might have been preparing for that conference call, she took her rst steps, two tiny steps, before plopping down and demanding to be hugged for her efforts. Our daughter has already overcome more setbacks than most of us have endured in the span of our lives. Having her very existence used as a scapegoat for cutting corporate benets was one indignity too many. Deanna Fei is the author of the novel A Thread of Sky. She wrote this column for the online magazine, Slate.com.My distressed baby and AOLs bottom line Slate.comDeanna Fei America succeeds because Americans fail and forgive. Thats the intriguing message or part of it of Megan McArdles new book The Up Side of Down: Why Failing Well Is the Key to Success. McArdle, a Bloomberg blogger and columnist, stands out among economic writers, and not just because shes the only woman among them who is 6 feet 2 inches. She combines a shrewd knowledge of economics and practical experience with a writing style that every so often segues into comedy monologue. Americans fail a lot, she argues. Most new businesses fail. Most predictions are wrong. As the screenwriter William Goldman wrote about Hollywood, Nobody knows anything. And attempts to guard against failure can result in greater failures later on. Children prevented from roughhousing at recess may engage in riskier behavior later. Antibiotic overuse makes bacteria resistant to antibiotics, which then dont work when you really need them. But good judgment comes from experience. And experience comes from bad judgment from failures. The key question is how you respond, whether you learn from failure and rebound. Drawing from prehistory, McArdle contrasts farmers and foragers, the hunter-gatherers who lived before the development of agriculture. Foragers tend to share success with neighbors, in the expectation that others will share later. They see success as the result of luck the hunter who happens to spy a particularly vulnerable mammoth. Farmers tend to share success only with family members. They see success a plenteous harvest as the result of their own families hard work and conscientiousness. They see no reason to share it with the lazy and feckless. Americans, in McArdles view, have values like those of farmers. Much more than Europeans, they believe that there is a connection between effort and reward. Those who have earned more deserve it. Europeans tend to believe that success comes mostly from luck. They enlist government to, in President Obamas words to Joe the Plumber, spread the wealth around. But in some respects, Americans behave like foragers. Theyre often ready to forgive failures. High-tech entrepreneurs like to hire people whose businesses failed because it shows a willingness to take chances. The U.S., McArdle points out, has the most accessible bankruptcy laws in the world. You can slough off your debts (except for student loans) relatively easily. In supposedly progressive Denmark, they hang over you for life. The result is that, contrary to F. Scott Fitzgeralds adage, there are many, many second acts in American life. Americans also, though McArdle doesnt mention this, donate far more to charity than Europeans do. Great philanthropists have created benecial institutions Andrew Carnegies libraries, John D. Rockefellers research medical schools, many donors universities which Europe cant match. McArdle mostly ignores religion, but this blend of farmer property-owning and forager sharing is in line with Christian teaching. There is such a thing as sin, and it should be penalized. But there is also the possibility of forgiveness and redemption and a duty to share in your own way. Though not technically part of the millennial generation (those born after 1980), McArdle presents a Millennials view of the world. Sudden macroeconomic shifts can result in months of soul-deadening unemployment (she was working in IT just as the dot-com bubble burst). The future is wildly unpredictable, failure is frequent, success seemingly serendipitous (her freelance blogging got her a job blogging at the Economist). Her advice is to avoid enterprises that are in long-term decline, such as General Motors starting in the 1970s. In business and public policy, try to learn from well-conducted experiments but recognize that successful trials cant always be replicated on a large scale. Dont rush to conclude that disasters like the 2008 nancial crash are the result of conspiracy or the errors of one easily identied group of malefactors. Bubbles happen in any free market economy and are hard to identify until they burst. The world is an increasingly insecure place, she writes, and there is no way to make it less risky. The best way ahead is to admit mistakes quickly, understand that you may well fail, but you can usually rebound and punish rule-breaking promptly and consistently but lightly. This book about people who fail is also a book about how a nation succeeds. The American Bourgeois Synthesis, McArdle writes, is good but not perfect, promoting entrepreneurship but over-penalizing some mistakes. Americans and America can succeed, but only if people learn from their failures. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner.

ENGLEWOOD In Brian Tuckers line of work, he has rubbed shoulders with former presidents, Hollywood celebrities and NFL players. To be precise, he has rubbed the muscles in their shoulders, along their spines and down their legs. As a licensed massage therapist, Tucker has carried a lofty clientele at prestigious locations in Florida. Now hes bringing his massage table or chair directly to the client with his new business, Body Kneads Mobile Massage, in Englewood. Available for 30-, 60or 90-minute massages, Tucker can also bring his chair to an ofce setting, offering 10to 15-minute massages for a group of employees. Bodybuilding got me into massage therapy, Tucker said, while researching the most effective exercises for weightlifting. A pinched nerve in his neck landed him in a chiropractors ofce, where he further became interested in healing at its source rather than taking excess anti-inammatories. Studying anatomy and physiology at the Florida College of Natural Health, Tucker learned more about the action, insertion and origin of the bodys more than 600 muscles. After getting licensed in Florida, he rst practiced at a chiropractors ofce easing car accident victims with trigger point therapy and positional release. Trigger points are knots in the muscles that can cause pain at the spot or it can radiate to another part of the body. By identifying and releasing the trigger points through massage, Tucker has eased clients with everything from migraines to a frozen shoulder. Because pain from a trigger point can be referred to another part of the body, Tucker begins by looking for the source of the problem. When someone has knee pain, the rst thing I work on are their hips, he said. If something is tight, it is going to put pressure somewhere else. Tight hamstrings can cause lower back pain by pulling the pelvic girdle. Every client I see, I tell them you need to stretch, Tucker said. If you are sitting in a chair all day, get up and touch your toes. It doesnt take much to stretch. Warming up the muscle rst with some quick knee lifts, jogging in place or even a warm shower prepares the body for stretching. He specializes in deep-tissue massage and trigger-point therapy. Using a Swedish massage to warm up and relax the muscles, Tucker works to release trigger points allowing him to go deeper into the overlapping muscles. I also do a little tractioning so people feel taller and more opened up when they are done, he said. Tucker honed his personal technique working at the Grand Floridian Spa at the Walt Disney World Resort. There, he would massage guests of the resort as well as celebrities like Carrie Fisher, Tony Danza, Thurman Thomas and Kurt Warner. Thurman Thomas didnt have any knots or trigger points because he did yoga seven days a week, Tucker said. Returning to the Englewood area, Tucker worked at the Gasparilla Inn Spa on Boca Grande. His clientele included former presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush. Tucker once received presidential cufinks as a gift from President George H.W. Bush and has a Christmas card from Barbara Bush. Clients can schedule a Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy or myofascial release, a type of soft tissue massage.

WRONG | 4 WASHINGTON The Pentagon is coming under pressure to give Congress detailed information on the handling of sex crime cases in the armed forces following an Associated Press inves tigation that found a pattern of inconsistent judgments and light penalties for sexual assaults at U.S. bases in Japan. Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, whos led efforts in Congress to address military sexual crimes, is pressing the Defense Department to turn over case information from four major U.S. bases: Fort Hood in Texas, Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia, the Marine Corps Camp Pendleton in California, and WrightPatterson Air Force Base in Ohio. Such records would shed more light on how military commanders make decisions about court mar tials and punishments in sexual assault cases and whether the inconsistent judgments seen in Japan are more widespread. APs investigation, which was based on hundreds of internal military documents it rst began requesting in 2009, found that what appeared to be strong cases were often reduced to lesser charges. Suspects were unlikely to serve time even when military authorities agreed a crime had been committed. In two rape cases, commanders overruled recommendations to court-mar tial and dropped the charges instead. Gillibrand, who leads the Senate Armed Services personnel panel, wrote Monday to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel asking for all reports and allegations of rape, forcible sodomy, sexual assault, sex in the barracks, adultery and attempts, conspir acies or solicitations to commit these crimes, for the last ve years.

MILITARY | 4 WASHINGTON Georgetown University has received a $10 million gift for a new center aimed at fostering innovation among students who want to build skills and organizations to solve societys problems, the school announced Monday. Georgetown alumna Olga Maria Beeck and her husband, investor Alberto Beeck of Key Biscayne, Fla., made the gift and helped develop the program over the past three years, university ofcials told The Associated Press. The Beecks are the parents of two current Georgetown students. The donation will create the new Beeck Center for Social Impact and Innovation as a hub for research and real-world experience in the U.S. and abroad, across a variety of sectors and issues. While other schools, including Stanford and Duke, have created centers for social entrepreneurship, Georgetown ofcials said their program will be different because its not housed within the business school. It could involve students studying public policy, foreign service, law and other disciplines, as well as business. Alberto Beeck, director of Virgin Hotels and former president of a Peruvian cement company, said the familys passion is education and connecting the social sector while also promoting solutions-based government policies.

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, February 11, 2014 STATE NEWS JACKSONVILLE (AP) Prosecutors rested their case Monday in the trial of a Florida man charged with killing a teen after an argument over loud music outside a Jacksonville convenience store. Prosecutors called an associate medical examiner as their last witness in direct testimony in the rst-degree murder trial of Michael Dunn, who is pleading not guilty. He said he acted in self-defense when he fatally shot Jordan Davis, 17, of Marietta, Ga., outside the store in Jacksonville in November 2012. According to authorities, an argument began after the 47-year-old Dunn told Davis and his friends to turn the music down they were listening to in an SUV outside the store. One of Davis friends lowered the volume, but Davis then told him to turn it back up. Ofcials say Dunn became enraged and he and Davis began arguing. Dunn, who had a concealed weapons permit, pulled a 9 mm handgun from the glove compartment of his car, according to an afdavit, and red shots into the SUV. Nine bullet holes were found in the car. Associate medical examiner Stacey Simons testied Monday that the rst bullet that hit Davis in the abdomen likely killed him. The bullet went from his lower right abdomen, into his diaphragm, through his liver and hit his aorta, she said. I believe it would have been fatal within a matter of minutes, Simons said. Under cross-examination, Simons said it was unlikely Davis was standing up when he was shot. Dunns defense attorney, Cory Strolla, had argued in opening statements that Davis had threatened Dunn with a 4-inch knife. Simons said the bullet appeared to have struck something hard, like a car door, before hitting Davis. Florida Department of Law Enforcement analyst Sukhan Warf said toxicology tests on Davis showed no signs of drugs or alcohol in his body. No gun was found in the SUV. Another law enforcement department analyst, Maria Pagan, testied earlier in the day about the steps Dunn took before shooting the teen, bolstering prosecutors contention that he acted with premeditations. Dunn would have had to remove the gun from its holster, load the chamber with a bullet and then apply six pounds of pressure to re it, Pagan said. Dunn red the gun 10 times, hitting the SUV nine times, and he would have had to pull the trigger every time using more than six pounds of pressure each time, Pagan said. Pagan answered affirmatively when prosecutor Angela Corey asked, Does that take a conscious effort of the shooter to have a second-round come out? The rst witness to testify for the defense was Randy Berry, a friend of Dunn. He said he never knew Dunn to be violent. Berrys wife, Beverly Berry, also testied that she had never seen Dunn with anything but a calm demeanor. Dunn had been at his sons wedding before the shooting. Dunns ex-wife, Phyllis Molinaro, and son, Chris Dunn, told jurors that Dunn didnt appear drunk and was in good spirits at the wedding. The defense attorney also called Davis father to ask him what he recalled in the days after the shooting. I think I said at the time that I was shocked that my son was killed, Ronald Davis said.Prosecutors rest in trial of man who shot teen MIAMI (AP) Addressing what he calls a growing opportunity gap between people with and without advanced educations, Sen. Marco Rubio is calling for state-accredited alternatives to four-year colleges and income-based repay ments for college loans. The Florida senator and possible 2016 Republican presidential contender also says Congress should establish an independent accrediting agency to assess free courses offered over the Internet and elsewhere as transferrable credits. Those with the right advanced education are making more than ever. But those that do not are falling farther and farther behind, Rubio said in remarks prepared for an education forum Monday at Miami Dade College. The result is a growing opportunity gap between haves and have-nots, those who have advanced education and those who do not. College students, he added, also should be offered cost-benet analyses comparing how much they can expect to earn in a particular eld to how much they will owe after earning a degree in the subject. You have this new economic era, where higher education of some form is really a requirement to make it to the middle class and stabilize yourself, Rubio said in an interview with The Associated Press before the conference sponsored by the National Journal. But we have an old and stagnant education formula that doesnt meet the demand that is being created. His education initiative comes as Republicans are aiming to offer an alternative to President Barack Obamas agenda and shed the baggage of Mitt Romneys 2012 presidential bid and Romneys suggestion that 47 percent of Americans view themselves as victims who wont take responsibility for themselves. Last month, Rubio proposed ideas for retooling federal anti-poverty programs, arguing that states could run them better. I want to add more options to the menu. And the more options we have, the more affordable it will be and the more people were going to be able to empower, he told the AP.Rubio to propose higher education overhaul | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATEPolice probe wrong-way I-275 car crashTAMPA (AP) Florida Highway Patrol troopers say theyre trying to determine what entrance a driver took on Interstate 275 to end up going the wrong way and crashing into a car carrying four University of South Florida students.

The report has found that fatal collisions have decreased by 49 percent in the 12 counties studied, resulting in an estimated 18 lives saved. In addition, 68 fewer injury crashes occurred after red-light safety cameras were installed. While this information is overshadowed in the report, it is an important indicator that Floridas camera programs are achieving their most critical purpose saving lives.British Airways adds new flights to OrlandoORLANDO (AP) British Airways is going forward with plans to increase its number of ights to Orlando.

It will increase ights from Londons Gatwick Airport and Orlando International Airport from 7 to 10 ights per week in November 2014 and March 2015. The three ights per week increase will result in more than 7,100 additional seats. The added ights are in addition to the previously announced 28,000-seat increase by British Airways for this upcoming summer.Bikers raise money for theater victims familyPORT RICHEY (AP) Some 1,000 motorcy clists are raising money for the family of a man who was gunned down during an argument over texting in a Florida theater. The Chad Oulson Memorial Run took place Sunday in Port Richey. Friends say 43-year-old Oulson loved dirt bikes and motocross. He left behind a 2-year-old daughter and a wife, but didnt have life insurance. In the days after the shooting, friends established a trust fund to help the family. Motorcycle people are some of the most giving people on the planet, said Denise Mosher, who participated in the event with her husband, Chris Mosher. We always ride for the cause. The Tampa Bay Times reports Oulson didnt have life insurance. And he had been researching college funds for his daughter, Alexis, in the weeks before his death. On Sunday, organizers of the fundraiser wore bright green shirts with the number 28, which Oulson wore in motocross events. Oulsons wife Nicole and daughter were at the nish line to greet the bikers. Oulson died after being shot while sitting in a movie theater on Jan. 13. Authorities say former police officer Curtis Reeves, 71, shot Oulson during an argument over texting before the movie started. Nicole Oulsons left ring finger was also injured by a bullet. Reeves remains in the Pasco County Jail on a second-degree murder charge. Checks for the Chad Oulson Memorial Fund may be sent in care of McIntyre, Panzarella, Thanasides, Bringgold & Todd, 501 E.

ODD NEWSFROM PAGE ONE the exciting changes that are taking place in the social sector. ... The exponential growth in technology has empowered and connected individuals in ways that we have never seen before. Provost Robert Groves said the school wants to teach research skills by having students actively doing things and also meet the growing demand to support entrepreneurship driven by a passion to solve problems. Social innovation also aligns with the schools Jesuit values for service, he said. We have tons of students, many of whom Ive talked to, who said I want to learn how to build an organization. Teach me everything I need to know, Groves said. This center is going to quench some of that thirst. The idea also taps into larger trends and changes in philanthropy. Social innovation is all about nding new solutions to old problems with a drive to deliver results, said Jean Case, a philanthropist and former technology executive at AOL who is now an executive-in-residence at Georgetown. The millennial generation has sparked changes, she said, in examining social problems and fostering innovation across sectors, rather than only going into social work, business or government as career paths. When the millennials look at the world, they see daunting challenges that have dogged us for a long time, she said. This generation says, wow, these are big problems, whats the best way to nd new solutions? And they dont think in the old-style ways. The new Center for Social Impact and Innovation will be led by Sonal Shah, a professor and economist who previously served as director of President Barack Obamas Ofce of Social Innovation and Civic Participation in the White House. Previously, she worked at Goldman Sachs, Google and the U.S. Treasury. The program already supports students who want to study abroad and work on social issues in Latin America or Africa. One student worked in a rural cooperative in Rwanda that was based on growing chickens for their meat and eggs but designed a way to monetize the chicken waste as a new line of business. It also aims to convene faculty, students and lawmakers to nd ways public policy can have a greater effect. Its really about ideas in the social sector that could merge with whats happening in the nonprot, for prot and government sectors to really solve social problems at scale, Shah said.INNOVATIONFROM PAGE 1 Pentagon should have provided the records more quickly. The documents may build momentum for legislation she has introduced that would strip senior ofcers of their authority to decide whether serious crimes, including sexual assault cases, go to trial. The bill would place that judgment with trial counsels who have prosecutorial experience and hold the rank of colonel or above. The legislation, expected to be voted on in coming weeks, is short of the 60 votes needed to prevent a libuster. Defense Department ofcials have acknowledged the problem of sexual assaults in the ranks and said they are taking aggressive steps to put a stop to the crimes. This isnt a sprint, said Jill Loftus, director of the Navys sexual assault prevention program. This is a marathon and its going to take a while. Col. Alan Metzler, deputy director of the Defense Departments Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Ofce, said numerous changes in military law and policy made by Congress and the Pentagon are creating a culture where victims trust that their allegations will be taken seriously and perpetrators will be punished. Defense ofcials noted that the cases in Japan preceded changes the Pentagon implemented in May. The information acquired by AP through the open records law consists of more than 1,000 reports of sex crimes involving U.S. military personnel between 2005 and early 2013. Although AP sought the full investigative le for the cases, to include detail-rich exhibits, the Pentagon mainly provided summaries of cases from the U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service. That service, which handles the Navy and Marine Corps, excised the names of U.S. commanders from the records, affording senior ofcers the same degree of privacy as the alleged victims. But with their identities kept secret, commanders cant be held publicly accountable for how they handled the cases. Gillibrands request doesnt seek the exhibits for cases. She is asking for reports and recommendations made in Article 32 proceedings, the militarys version of a grand jury, and the results of all courts-mar tial that were convened to adjudicate rapes and other serious sex crimes.MILITARYFROM PAGE 1 Silicon Valley. This event occurs several times every winter in bad weather when we work on Runway 12, a San Jose airport tower controller said in a November 2012 report describing how an airliner headed for Moffett after being cleared to land at San Jose. A controller at a different facility who noticed the impending landing on radar warned his colleagues with a telephone hotline that piped his voice directly into the San Jose towers loudspeakers. The plane was waved off in time. In nearly all the incidents, the pilots were cleared by controllers to guide the plane based on what they could see rather than relying on automation. Many incidents occur at night, with pilots reporting they were attracted by the runway lights of the rst airport they saw during descent. Some pilots said they disregarded navigation equipment that showed their planes slightly off course because the information didnt match what they were seeing out their windows a runway straight ahead. Youve got these runway lights, and you are looking at them, and theyre saying: Come to me, come to me. I will let you land. Theyre like the sirens of the ocean, said Michael Barr, a former Air Force pilot who teaches aviation safety at the University of Southern California. Using NASAs Aviation Safety Reporting System, along with news accounts and reports sent to other federal agencies, the AP tallied 35 landings and 115 approaches or aborted landing attempts at wrong airports by commercial passenger and cargo planes over more than two decades. The tally doesnt include every event. Many arent disclosed to the media, and reports to the NASA database are voluntary. The Federal Aviation Administration investigates wrong airport landings and many near-landings, but those reports arent publicly available. FAA ofcials turned down a request by The Associated Press for access to those records, saying some may include information on possible violations of safety regulations by pilots and might be used in an enforcement action. NASA, on the other hand, scrubs its reports of identifying information to protect condentiality, including names of pilots, controllers and airlines. While the database is oper ated by the space agency, it is paid for by the FAA and its budget has been frozen since 1997, said database director Linda Connell. As a result, fewer incident reports are being entered even though the volume of reports has soared, she said. The accounts that are available paint a picture of repeated close calls, especially in parts of the country where airports are situated close together with runways similarly angled, including Nashville and Smyrna in Tennessee, Tucson and DavisMonthan Air Force Base in Arizona, and several airports in South Florida. In a report led last July, for example, an airline captain described how his MD-80 was lined up to land at what he thought was San Antonio International Airport when a rider in the cockpits jump seat shouted out that we were headed for Lackland Air Force Base. The rst ofcer, who was ying the plane, quickly aborted the landing and circled around to line up for the correct airport. The captain later thanked the cockpit passenger and phoned the San Antonio tower. They did not seem too concerned, he reported, and said this happens rather frequently there.WRONGFROM PAGE 1 ability to maintain security more than two years after the withdrawal of U.S. troops. While the Iraqi army has been attacking insurgent training camps in the vast desert of western Anbar province near the Syrian border, it is unusual to nd such a camp in the center of the country, just 60 miles north of the capital. The discovery shows that the terrorist groups have made a strong comeback in Iraq and that the security problems are far from over, and things are heading from bad to worse, said Hamid al-Mutlaq, a member of the par liaments security and defense committee. The militants belonged to a network now known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an extremist group that recently broke with al-Qaida. The ISIL, emboldened by fellow ghters gains in the Syrian civil war, has tried to position itself as the champion of Iraqi Sunnis angry at the government over what they see as efforts to marginalize them. Car bombs are one of the deadliest weapons used by this group, with coordinated waves of explosions regularly leaving scores dead in Baghdad and elsewhere across the country. The bombs are sometimes assembled in farm compounds where militants can gather without being spotted, or in car workshops in industrial areas. The explosion Monday took place at a camp tucked away in an orchard in the village of al-Jalam, a farming area that has been a stronghold of al-Qaida close to the Sunni city of Samarra. According to a police ofcer, an army ofcial and a hospital ofcial, all of whom spoke on condition of anonymity for security reasons, the events unfolded as follows. The militants were attending a lesson on making car bombs and explosive belts when a glitch set off one of the devices during the car bomb part of the demonstration. Security forces rushed to the area after hearing the thun derous blast and arrested 12 wounded militants along with another 10 trying to ee. Authorities searched two houses and a garage in the orchard, nding seven car bombs as well as several explosive belts and roadside bombs. The cars did not have license plates. Bomb experts then started the work of defusing the devices. Later Monday, a bomb exploded near a cafe in western Baghdad shortly after nightfall, killing three people and wounding 11 others, according to police and medical ofcials who all spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to media.BACKFIRESFROM PAGE 1 WASHINGTON (AP) Angling to avoid political peril, the Obama administration Monday granted employers another delay in a heavily criticized requirement that medium-to-larger rms cover their workers or face nes. In one of several concessions in a complex Treasury Department regulation of more than 200 pages, the administration said companies with 50 to 99 employees will have an additional year to comply with the coverage requirement, until January 1, 2016. For businesses with 100 or more employees the requirement will still take effect in 2015. But other newly announced provisions, affecting technical issues such as the calculation of working hours, may help some of those rms. More than 90 percent of companies with 50 or more employees already cover their workers without the government telling them to do so, but the debate has revolved around the potential impact on new and growing rms. Most small businesses have fewer than 50 workers and are exempt from the mandate. However, employer groups were also uneasy with a requirement that denes a full-time worker as someone averaging 30 hours a week. Republicans trying to take control of the Senate in the November elections have once again made President Barack Obamas health care law their top issue, casting it as a job killer. They want to use the employer mandate to build that case, with anecdotes of bosses reluctant to hire a 50th worker, or slashing the hours of low-wage workers who need to pay household bills. Mondays moves by the administration seemed calibrated to reduce that risk. The reaction of business groups was mixed. These nal regulations secured the gold medal for greatest assistance to retailers, and other businesses, and our employees, said Neil Trautwein, a vice president of the National Retail Federation. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce was unimpressed, calling it more of a respite than a fundamental change. This short-term x also creates new problems for companies by moving the goalposts of the mandate modestly when what we really need is a time out, president Thomas Donohue said in a statement. The administration still hasnt issued rules for reporting requirements on business and insurers, the nitty-gritty of how the coverage requirement will be enforced. Administration ofcials and the laws supporters said the concessions were the sorts of reasonable accommodations that regulators make all the time when implementing major new legislation. The Treasury department said Secretary Jack Lew was well within his legal authority in making the changes. This common sense approach will protect employers already providing quality insurance, while helping to ensure that larger employers are prepared to meet their responsibility to their hard-working employees, said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. But Republicans said they smelled fear. It is clear Democrats dont think they can survive politically if Obamacare is allowed to fully go into effect, said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., who as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee oversees the tax penalties enforcing the mandate.New delay in health laws employer rules aaaaQTod! O Oo yOn IN domTJ X99@ bO hd&y

I purchased one of his beautiful pieces, paying $19,000 for a modest canvas of a cabin beside a river with mountains in the background. An ex-student reluctantly gave me terrible news: My $19,000 Kinkade is worth only a few hundred dollars at best. About the same time, a close associate purchased two signed Kinkade prints and paid more than he could afford. Now we are told that his prints are basically worthless. PC, Oklahoma City Dear PC: Tens and tens of thousands of folks were just as enchanted and captivated by the unique style of Thomas Kinkade. If Thomas had created just 100 or so canvases, yours might have been worth multiple tens of thousands of dollars today. However, the almost tsunamic demand for his canvases was so overwhelming that Thomas wisely decided to go commercial before the paint dried. So he created what amounted to an industrial assembly line and began to bang out myriad idyllic, Arcadian and bucolic eclogues on canvas. And because of Thomas prodigious output, the supply exceeded demand, and values collapsed. Why? Everybody who wanted a Kinkade could afford an original. Theres a fascinating lesson here: Basically, the pricing of art is a farce. Thomas got very rich very quickly, and good for him; he deserved it. The rest of his life is another story. Acionados who believed he was a saint and adored their $40,000 canvases and $3,000 prints suddenly thought he was gauche. But Im told that Kinkades original early works, which were peddled by his wife for $30 to $50 during their salad days, now sell for a few hundred dollars and may have value for collectors. And who knows? In this kooky, fatuous, drug-laced art world, all of Kinkades work could become highly desirable again. Good artists, as knowledgeable collectors know, are made, not discovered. The work of most of todays highly regarded artists was considered dreadful when these guys were living; they had to die to become valuable. Sadly, your friends signed prints can be bought for about a sawbuck each. Thomas guratively produced tons of them, and his silk-screens could be worth as little as an Elvis on velvet. But your original canvas (there are so many reproductions that its difcult to know whether you have a real Kinkade) may be worth a dinner at Mahogany Prime Steakhouse or Cattlemens Steakhouse in OKC. Thomas later canvases, produced in the 1990s, might fetch only $50 to $70, and the reproductions (though beautiful) arent worth a n or a ver. However, Professor, will you still love your Kinkade knowing its worth only a few hundred dollars? Email Malcolm Berko at mjberko@yahoo.com.Kinkade Malcolm Berko NEW YORK (AP) The stock market ended up more or less where it began Monday in a quiet day for investors who had little economic data or company earnings to react to. Analysts said the market is likely to remain in a holding pattern until traders hear from Janet Yellen in her rst testimony before Congress since becoming head of the Federal Reserve. After spending most of the day lower, the Dow Jones Industrial average turned slightly higher in late trading and closed up 7.71 points, or 0.1 percent, at 15,801.79. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 2.82 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,799.84 and the Nasdaq composite rose 22.31 points, or 0.5 percent, to 4,148.17. The tech-heavy Nasdaq was pushed higher by Apple, which rose $9.31, or 2 percent, to $528.99. Apple rose after the activist investor Carl Icahn said he has dropped his shareholder proposal to force Apple to increase its stock buybacks. Apple recently disclosed it had bought $14 billion of its own stock. Yellen, who started her term as head of the central bank this month, is scheduled to testify before Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday. Yellens comments will be closely watched, especially after recent disappointing economic news and the Feds decision to further reduce on its monthly bond purchases. Despite recent volatility in the market, investors believe that Yellen will likely continue her predecessors plan to continue winding down the Feds economic stimulus program. Last week, the Fed cut its bond purchases to $65 billion a month. We should expect more volatility as the Fed transitions away from its (economic stimulus plan), said Doug Cote, chief investment strategist at ING Investment Management. Investors got a respite from a recent deluge of earnings and economic reports. Wall Street remains in the middle of earnings season, when the bulk of the nations publicly traded companies report their quarterly results. Only two out of the 55 companies announcing this week reported their results Monday: the toy maker Hasbro and the industrial conglomerate Loews Corp.US stocks end slightly higher LOS ANGELES (LA Times) The Los Feliz neighborhood was buzzing Sunday afternoon as crowds of people lined up for hours to grab a cup of coffee from Dumb Starbucks. The mock store, which opened Friday, is nearly identical to a typical Starbucks location, with tumblers for sale and trendy CDs, including Dumb Jazz Standards, displayed on the counter. But the similarities end there. Drinks here are served in green and white Dumb Starbucks coffee cups, while pastries are pulled from display cases straight from their Vons bakery packaging. The menu features Dumb Iced Coffee, Dumb Frappuccinos, and a seasonal Wuppy Duppy Latte. But only iced coffees and lattes were available free, to promote the new business, an upbeat barista told customers after apologizing for the wait. Theyre denitely not serving at Starbucks pace, customer Jeffrey Eyster, 43, joked after waiting about an hour in line. As word of the shop spread on social media, curious customers came to snap seles in front of the sign or photos of the line wrapped around the small strip mall. Those who cut to avoid a nearly two-hour wait were promptly shamed out of line. Rumors about the stores origin percolated through the crowd a marketing ploy, a pop-up art installation, perhaps reality TV? Its a ballsy move on their part, said Ilya Khramtsou, 24. It feels like theyre sticking it to the company. Everybody drinks Starbucks coffee, like zombies. She drinks it every day, he said, laughing as he motioned to his girlfriend Alisa Bazhenova, 24. The couple stopped by to snap a quick photo, but decided not to stay once they saw the wait. I hope its an art thing vs. a business thing, Eyster said. Id love to see a whole chain of dumb McDonalds and dumb Cheesecake Factories. People can go to any mall anywhere and have the same experience at each of these chains, Eyster said. Starbucks is aware of the parody and is looking into it, said Megan Adams, a spokeswoman for the company. She declined to say whether legal action would be pursued or if this has happened before. An email sent to Dumb Starbucks was not immediately returned. A list of frequently asked questions pegs the legality of the mock store to parody art. Although we are a fully functioning coffee shop, for legal reasons Dumb Starbucks needs to be categorized as a work of parody art. So, in the eyes of the law, our coffee shop is actually an art gallery and the coffee youre buying is considered the art. But thats for our lawyers to worry about. All you need to do is enjoy our delicious coffee! Those who did wait in line said they came for the novelty of the shop, assuming it would be shut down before the weekend was over. Its a very L.A. thing, said Connor Sweeney, 24. Well see how long it lasts. Thats why Im here today. He said he hoped its a joke, rather than some kind of advertising ploy. Maro Ishimoro, who owns a salon next door, said people have been lined up outside his door for hours, even before the mock store had opened for the day.Dumb Starbucks generates serious response 0 0

The Sun /Tuesday, February 11, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 7 NATIONAL NEWS | NATIONUS gasoline falls in Lundberg Survey(Bloomberg) The average price for regular gasoline at U.S. pumps fell 1.69 cents in the past two weeks to $3.2944 a gallon, according to Lundberg Survey Inc. The survey covers the period ended Friday and is based on information obtained at about 2,500 lling stations by the Camarillo, Calif.-based company. The Friday retail price is 29.74 cents lower than a year ago, Lundberg said. Gasoline has fallen 5.15 cents since Jan. 10. Prices dont seem to be falling further from this point, Trilby Lundberg, the president of Lundberg Survey, said on Sunday in a telephone interview. Retailers got wholesale gasoline-price hikes, which have not been passed through to consumers. Retailers will need to raise prices to recover from margins that have been squeezed, Lundberg said. In the near future, we can expect a rise at the pump of a few pennies per gallon, she said.Man sentenced to 30 years in border agents deathTUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Kelly Terry-Willis did not hesitate to look into the eyes of the orange-jumpsuit-clad man involved in the shooting death of her big brother, telling him his evil decision took from her a loving condant, dance partner and dedicated family man. She turned to face Manuel Osorio-Arellanes numerous times as she spoke about her brother Brian Terry, who was killed during a December 2010 shootout near the U.S.Mexico border. OsorioArellanes was sentenced Monday to 30 years on a federal murder charge in Terrys death, making him the rst person involved in the killing to go to prison in the U.S. The case brought to light the botched Fast and Furious operation in which federal agents trying to track guns allowed criminals to buy them for weapons smugglers. Instead, agents lost track of 1,400 of the 2,000 guns involved in the sting operation, including two weapons found at the scene of Terrys killing.Study: Media everywhere, bathroom includedLOS ANGELES (AP) TV viewers increasingly are watching programs on their own schedule, according to a Nielsen company media study released Monday. In the past year, time-shifting of television content grew by almost two hours, averaging 13 hours per month, the study found. Viewers averaged nearly 134 hours of live TV viewing a month in 2013, down nearly three hours from 2012. Television still remains central to media consumption, the study found. On average, American consumers own four digital devices, the report found. The majority of U.S. households own high-denition TV sets, Internetconnected computers and smartphones, while nearly half also own digital video recorders and gaming consoles. The average consumer spends about 60 hours a week viewing content across various platforms, Nielsen found. An offbeat survey nding: 40 percent of adults between the ages of 18 and 24 use social media in the bathroom. NEW YORK (AP) Other dogs came to play, Swagger came to win. Kept in peak form by running up 15 ights of stairs at his hotel, the old English sheepdog that nearly won at the Westminster Kennel Club last year bounded to an early victory Monday. You never know when you get in the ring, co-owner and handler Colton Johnson said. Tonight could be differ ent, you never know. There were a total of 2,845 entries for Americas top dog show. Breed judging in the hound, toy, nonsporting and herding categories started at Piers 92 and 94 on the Hudson River, with group winners to be picked Monday night at Madison Square Garden. Sporting, working and terrier dogs will compete Tuesday. The best in show will be chosen shortly before 11 p.m. Among the other breed winners was an Australian shepherd who lives with Tampa Bay Rays catcher Ryan Hanigan. Of the 44 entered, his Copperridge Whats Your Dream won. Its incredible that she went from my No. 1 bed buddy to best of breed at Westminster!!! Hanigan wrote in a text message. Prime contenders to walk off with the prized silver bowl are Sky the wire fox terrier, Matisse the Portuguese water dog, Riley the Irish water spaniel and the Finator, a Doberman that has her own Facebook page. Swagger was a mere rookie when he came from Colorado Springs, Colo., to Westminster last February. At about 21 months old, he had appeared in just three dog shows, but quickly became a crowd favorite. Cheers lled the Garden when he romped around the ring, his full coat of white-and-gray fur shading his eyes. Swagger nished second, behind champion Banana Joe the affenpinscher. The little monkey-faced dog is now retired, and 97-pound Swagger is ready to rule. Hes taken about 30 titles at other events around the country since then, co-owner Debbie Burke said. Hes much more condent, co-owner Ron Scott said. He loves this, he loves to show. Other things Swagger enjoys: chewing ice cubes, jogging with Johnson and playing with youngsters. The kids just lay all over him, he doesnt mind, Scott said. And if their fruit roll-ups occasionally wind up in Swaggers hair, well, hes all right with that. Swagger beat out four other old English sheepdogs Monday afternoon in the breed round. Taller and fuller than the rest, the dog with the ofcial name of Bugaboos Picture Perfect was a clear pick. Spectators stood four-deep to watch him in action, more than at the other adjacent rings. Fans called out his name and shot video and pictures on their cellphones during his 15-minute judging. Mary Moorhouse and her mother, Julie, were in town from Owensboro, Ky. They spotted Swagger backstage in a grooming area and followed him to the ring, not even knowing his history. Its his personality, Julie said. Hes smiling. Hes proud. Hes condent. I like how uffy he is, her daughter said.Sheepdog Swagger stars at Westminster AP FILE PHOTOIn this Feb. 11, 2013, le photo, Swagger, an Old English Sheep Dog, is posed for photographs after winning the herding group during the Westminster Kennel Club dog show at Madison Square Garden in New York. ATLANTA (AP) Just two weeks ago, Atlanta became a national punch line when a few inches of snow crippled the city. Comedians said the gridlocked highways looked more like a zombie apocalypse than the Souths bustling business hub. On Monday, ofcials were quick to act as the winter weather zeroed in, determined not be the butt of jokes like the Saturday Night Live parody that referred to the devils dandruff and Yankees slush. Before a single drop of freezing rain or snow fell, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal had declared a state of emergency for nearly a third of the state, schools canceled classes and workers were told to stay home. Still, people were skeptical the state would be better prepared this time. Im not counting on it. Ive been in Georgia on and off for 20 years. Its usually the same scenario, not enough preparations and not enough equipment, said Terri Herod, who bought a large bag of sand and a shovel at a Home Depot. She said her sister told her to also buy kitty litter in case her car gets stuck on an ice patch. The memories of the Jan. 28 storm were too fresh for some. Students were trapped on buses or at schools and thousands of cars were abandoned along highways as short commutes turned into odysseys. One woman gave birth on a jammed interstate. In the chaos, though, there were stories of Southern hospitality people opening up homes and businesses to help the stranded. Ofcials reported one accident-related death. This storm could be worse this time. A one-two punch of winter weather was expected for Atlanta and northern Georgia. Rain and up to several inches of snow were forecast Tuesday, followed by sleet and freezing rain Wednesday. Downed power lines and icy roads were a major worry. Other parts of the South were expected to get hit as well. Alabama, which saw stranded vehicles and had 10,000 students spend the night in schools during the January storm, was likely to get a wintry mix of precipitation. Parts of Mississippi could see 3 inches of snow, and a blast of snow over a wide section of Kentucky slickened roads and closed several school districts. The Carolinas were also in the storms path. Atlanta has a long and painful history of being ill-equipped to deal with snowy weather and people were not taking any chances, even though ofcials promised the response would be different this time. Were not looking back, were looking forward, Deal said. The next three days are going to be challenging. We want to make sure we are as prepared as possible. Schools announced early that they would close Tuesday, and tractor-trailer drivers were handed iers about the weather and a law requiring chains on tires. People around Atlanta planned to stay off the roads, which couldnt be treated last time because there were too many cars stuck on them. Basically, everyone from the ofce is going to be working from home on Tuesday, Dakota Herrera said as he left a downtown car park on his way to the ofce Monday. Deal was doing many things differently. He opened an emergency operations center and held a news conference hours before the storm. When the Jan. 28 storm hit, Deal was at an awards luncheon with Mayor Kasim Reed, who was named a magazines 2014 Georgian of the Year. Reed had just tweeted: Atlanta, we are ready for the snow. This time, the mayor made no such predictions. Instead, he said he was in contact with school leaders and the city had 120 pieces of equipment to spread salt and sand and plow snow. We are just going to get out here and, at out, let our work speak for itself, Reed said. During the last storm, Deal and Reed didnt hold their rst news confer ence until hours after highways were jammed. Much is at stake for the governor, a Republican who is up for re-election, and Reed, who is seen as a rising star in the Democratic Party and has aspirations for higher ofce. Both took heat from residents, forecasters and even comedians during the last storm. Saturday Night Live spoofed a storm survivor with a thick Southern accent. The sun will rise again, the character said at one point. Jon Stewart quipped: The ice age zombie doomsday apocalypse has come to Atlanta. The governor apologized and announced the formation of a task force to study the problems. He also called for various reviews and wants a new public alert system for severe weather, similar to whats used for missing and endangered children.Is Georgia ready for the snowstorm this time? AP FILE PHOTOIn this Jan. 30 photo, cars abandoned during an earlier snow storm sit idle along Northside Parkway in Atlanta. With memo ries of thousands of vehicles gridlocked for hours on icy metro Atlanta highways fresh in their minds, emergency ocials and elected leaders in north Georgia were preparing Monday for another round of winter weather. 5 0 4 6 2 2 9 4 A n t h o n y F e r o c e ( 9 4 1 ) 2 5 8 9 5 2 7 Port Charlotte, South of Harbor Blvd. & Punta GordaB i b i G a f o o r ( 9 4 1 ) 2 5 8 9 5 2 8 Port Charlotte, North of Harbor Blvd.P u n t a G o r d a ( 9 4 1 ) 2 5 8 6 4 0 2 E n g l e w o o d ( 9 4 1 ) 6 8 1 3 0 0 0 N o r t h P o r t ( 9 4 1 ) 4 2 9 3 0 0 0 D e s o t o ( 8 6 3 ) 4 9 4 2 4 3 4 V e n i c e ( 9 4 1 ) 2 0 7 1 0 0 0 P l e a s e c o n t a c t y o u r l o c a l S u n A c c o u n t E x e c u t i v e t o a d v e r t i s e t o d a y The New Physician & Medical Guide Publishes Sunday, March 16, 2014 Your Community is Constantly Changing BE SURE YOU CAN BE FOUND! 2014 P HYSICIAN & M EDICAL G UIDE All..1yN1r.atcn, Gvt' R ease CO MW,.. ;,.. yowrDocWSun AccoirdExeccuflyW advard'38Wd'ay.SruAnthony Feroce (941) 258-9527Bib!

The blocs 28 foreign ministers said in a joint statement they were alarmed by the human rights situation, including violence, cases of missing persons, torture and intimidation as part of the authorities crackdown against the ongoing protests, reecting an atmosphere of impunity. Ukraine has been rocked by nearly three months of anti-government protests sparked by Yanukovychs refusal to sign an agreement with the EU and accept a $15 billion loan package from Russia instead. The political deadlock is also pushing Ukraines economy closer to the brink; its currency and foreign reserves are tumbling while Moscow has suspended its loan payments. The ministers at their meeting in Brussels reiterated the EU stands ready to assist Ukraine nancially, provided a new, inclusive government will be formed to pursue economic and political reforms. The EU has so far shied away from imposing sanctions such as travel bans or asset freezes against the Ukrainian leadership, but the for eign ministers demand for constitutional reform and fresh elections on Monday reected the blocs growing impatience. A new and inclusive government, constitutional reform bringing back more balance of powers, and preparation for free and fair presidential elections would contribute to bring Ukraine back on a sustainable path of reforms, they said. Separately, the foreign ministers decided to start negotiations with Cuba to upgrade the EUs ties with the Caribbean island nation. The EUs foreign policy chief, however, cautioned that progress will depend on Cubas determination to implement further reforms toward opening its economy and respecting fundamental rights. The EU resumed low-level contacts with Cuba in 2008, two years after Raul Castro became president and started granting Cubans some more freedom. While Washingtons relations with Cuba are dened by the 52-year-old trade embargo, European nations have long traded with Cuba and thousands of Europeans ock to the islands beaches every year.EU urges new government, elections in Ukraine AP PHOTOAn opposition supporter plays the piano on barricades in front of riot police in central Kiev, Ukraine, Monday. Ukraine has been rocked by nearly three months of anti-government protests sparked by President Viktor Yanukovichs refusal to sign a wideranging trade agreement with the European Union. BEIRUT (Washington Post) A second round of Syrian peace talks started acrimoniously on Monday as the two sides traded accusations over disruptions to humanitar ian operations in the city of Homs and the Syrian government alleged mass killings in nearby Hama. The government accused Islamist rebel battalions of a massacre in a village in central Hama province, making for a tense beginning to negotiations in Geneva. Meanwhile, aid oper ations in Homs, planned as a condence-building measure between the government and opposition in initial talks last month, have been plagued by violence, with both sides blaming each other for violations in a supposed cease-re. The shelling and gunre targeting humanitarian workers attempting to reach rebel-held areas of Homs is a reminder of the complexities of reaching even the smallest concessions in a civil war where developments on the ground have consistently outpaced diplomacy. Battle lines are constantly shifting, with the al-Qaida-inspired Islamic State of Iraq and Syria withdrawing from its bases in oil-rich Deir Ezzor on Monday after rebel inghting. The two sides did not meet in Geneva on Monday, with U.N. mediator Lakhdar Brahimi instead holding separate sessions with each delegation. Syrian peace talks resume amid tension | WORLDUN says Iran yielding twice shows pragmatism VIENNA (Bloomberg) The United Nations praised Irans decision to give investigators new information about a reactor, the second time in a week the Persian Gulf nation has signaled willingness to compromise on its Arak project. An International Atomic Energy Agency team, led by its top inspector, Tero Varjoranta, agreed with Iranian counterparts to a seven-point deal that commits Iran to update design infor mation about the Arak reactor and explain why it had developed advanced detonation technologies. Iran has taken all the initial pragmatic measures that they were supposed to do, Varjoranta told reporters Monday in Vienna after returning from two days of talks in Iran. There are still a lot of outstanding issues. Now we start on possible military dimensions, he said.North Korea rescinds invitation to US envoySEOUL, South Korea (AP) North Korea has canceled for a second time its invitation for a senior U.S. envoy to visit the country to discuss a long-detained Americans possible release, the State Department said Monday. The cancellation comes only days after detained American missionary Kenneth Bae told a pro-Pyongyang newspaper that he expected to meet this month with the envoy. It signals an apparent protest of upcoming annual military drills between Washington and Seoul and an alleged mobilization of U.S. nuclear-capable B-52 bombers during training near the Korean Peninsula. North Korea calls the planned drills a rehearsal for invasion, a claim the allies deny.Report: Pakistan Taliban readies 500 female bombersISLAMABAD, Pakistan (Bloomberg) The Pakistani Taliban has as many as 500 female suicide bombers ready to act, a representative of the group involved in peace negotiations said, under scoring the risk of further violence if talks fail. The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan known as the Pakistani Taliban, or TTP sees no urgency to reach an agreement with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharifs government, Maulana Abdul Aziz, one of three negotiators representing the TTP, said in a Feb. 7 interview at his Islamabad seminary. The two sides started talks last week. You should know that at the moment they have at least 400 to 500 female suicide bombers in Waziristan and other tribal areas, said Aziz, former head cleric of Islamabads Lal Masjid, or Red Mosque, referring to the TTP. The government should realize the situation and their demands. Sharif revived peace talks with the group as pressure grows for a military strike after attacks last month killed more than two dozen soldiers, part of violence that caused the deaths of 40,000 Pakistanis since 2001. Failure to reach a deal would threaten Sharifs efforts to bolster the $225 billion economy as the U.S. reduces troops in neighboring Afghanistan.

But there was no need for a translator Monday because nobody was mincing words: The Sochi halfpipe is substandard, the top riders in the world agreed. Just one day before the Olympic halfpipe competition is scheduled to begin, snowboarders criticized the condition of the pipe, and one former gold medal winner even suggested the event be pushed back. Everyone is not happy right now, said three-time Olympian Hannah Teter, the 2006 gold medal winner in the event.

The SECs co-defensive player of the year is about to nd out if Americas most popular sport, rooted in machismo and entrenched in locker room hijinks, is ready for its rst openly gay player. First, hell have to nd a team willing to put up with the media circus that will surround him. Then, hell have to nd acceptance like he did at Missouri, where his sexuality was a non-issue during a 12-2 season. Only now, hell face opponents and their fans who know hes gay. He might even face cheap shots and teammates hesitant to shower alongside him or undress in his presence. While several teams and coaches said Monday that Sams sexual orientation wouldnt affect his draft status, former NFL punter Chris Kluwe, who contends his championing of gay rights led to his release from the Minnesota Vikings last year, wasnt so sure. The majority of players will be supportive of Michael Sam or just wont care, Kluwe said. Youll have isolated guys here and there who might try to make a fuss about it, but players by and large are very much, Hey, were here to do a job, were here to go out and play football. In terms of the coaching/front ofce side, I think theres where issues are going to arise because they are going to look at this like, Hey, is this going to cause a distraction for the team?

HURDLES | 4 Rays blank BulldogsBy GARY BROWNSUN CORRESPONDENTENGLEWOOD For years, Lemon Bay High Schools girls tennis team has been one of the top programs in Southwest Florida. DeSoto County, meanwhile, has a young, inexperienced team going through a rebuilding process. So Lemon Bays 7-0 victory on Monday was not surprising, but DeSoto Country at least showed promise with three sophomores and two freshmen in the starting lineup. Were young and inexperienced, said rst-year Bulldogs coach Devia LaCava, a DeSoto County graduate who was the Bulldogs No. 1 singles player and No. 1 doubles player his senior season. Our No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 singles players are sophomores and played last season, but our No. 1 and No. 5 singles players are freshmen and new.

Morgan came on in relief to cut down a Charlotte rally and hit a two-run single to highlight a ve-run fth inning as the Bobcats rallied for a 6-2 victory Monday night in a nondistrict contest. Its been a habit early in the season that has given coach Amanda Wathen a few gray hairs. We start coming on strong in the third and fourth innings and nish strong, Wathen said. They had me nervous for a while, but were a team that plays to the end. Morgan, who earned the win, came on in relief of an ineffective Courtney Naylor with runners on second and third and one out in the third. She struck out Tiffany Dodson and had Rylee Garand line out to rst to end the threat. Once everyone noticed what was going on; we put up the shields and stopped them from scoring, Morgan said. Theyve worked with me hard on pitching because they want me to relieve and shut things down. With the Bobcats trailing 2-1 in the fth, Carolyn Syzonenko led off with a double for North Port (2-1).

Brett Comer is known for his fearless play, and teammates give him credit for igniting Florida Gulf Coasts offense, which scored 173 points in two games last week. He plays so hard and hes so emotional when he plays, Chase Fieler said after the Eagles 63-60 victory against USC-Upstate last month. Comer suffered a broken nose in the game. When he gets going, you can see it, he has a look in his eyes. Hes one of the toughest kids. You see those looks that Bretts giving, you start getting excited with him. Others have taken notice. Comer added another award to his list of accomplishments this season, earning Atlantic Sun Conference player of the week honors on Monday. In Thursdays game against Jacksonville, the junior point guard scored a career-high with 30 points on 11 of 17 shooting, including 4-4 on 3-pointers. Comer, who has been playing with a mask since suffering the broken nose on Jan. 16, had eight assists against Jacksonville and also had 10 points and nine rebounds against North Florida on Saturday. Comer currently leads the Eagles with 5.3 assists per game, and is second on the team in scoring with 14 points per game. Hes also fth on the conferences all-time career assist list with 554. With two wins last week, FGCU pulled back into a rst-place tie with Mercer at 10-2 in confer ence play. The two teams meet next Friday at Alico Arena. First, the Eagles play two road games this week at East Tennessee State and USC-Upstate. FGCU names volleyball coach: Colorado State assistant coach Matthew Botsford was named Florida Gulf Coasts volleyball and sand volleyball coach. Botsford, 38, who played at Tri-State University (now Trine University) from 1995-98, has been the top assistant at Colorado State since 2012. He helped lead the Rams to two of the most successful seasons in program history. CSU won the Mountain West Conference championship in 2012 and 2013, advancing to the NCAA Tournament each year and winning a school-record 27 consecutive games this fall. Botsford replaces Nichols, who is resigning effective Feb. 22. Nichols led the Eagles to 99 wins in six years, five Atlantic Sun Tournament appearances and two A-Sun championships. Worton grabs ESPN award: Central Florida receiver J.J. Worton won the ESPN Sport Science Newton Award for best catch for his spectacular one-handed grab against Temple on Nov. 16. The juniors reception, which has been viewed 1.4 millions times on You Tube, sparked a 39-36 comeback victory for the Knights in a 12-1 season culminating with the American Athletic Conference title and a victory over No. 5 Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl. Player of the week roundup: South Floridas Victor Rudd was named to the American Athletic Conference honor roll in mens basketball. The senior forward averaged 20.5 points and 8.5 rebounds over two games, including a season-high 25 points in a 79-78 win at Central Florida on Wednesday. USFs Courtney Williams in womens basket ball and softball players Kourtney Salvarola and Erica Nunn also earned AAC honorable mentions. Floridas Kayla Lewis was named Southeastern Conference co-player of the week in womens basketball. The junior averaged 16.0 points and 13.5 rebounds, while shooting a 64.7 percent from the floor and 83.3 percent from the free throw line in two games last week, including Sundays 86-80 upset win against No. 15 Kentucky. Floridas Lauren Haeger was named SEC pitcher of the week in softball. The junior was 2-0 with a 1.08 ERA nd 18 strikeouts in wins over Illinois State and Wisconsin. She pitched her first no-hitter Sunday in a 5-1 victory against the Badgers with a career-high 11 strikeouts. Florida Gulf Coasts Kelsey Carpenter was named the Atlantic Sun player of the week in softball. The junior led the Eagles to a 5-0-1 record at the FGCU/ Four Points Invitational for the best start in program history. She batted .625 with 10 hits in 16 at-bats, including three doubles and two home runs.FGCU guard nets awardBy ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER STATE COLLEGES Sean Perry is a special runner. The Englewood third-grader has been breezing through 5K courses with such regularity that professional triathlete and distance runner Lukas Verzbicas is supposed to meet with the 8-year-old during a March visit to the area. Perry completed the recent Running Through the Palms 5K in Englewood in 20 minutes, 58 seconds to nish third overall. I paced myself, Sean said about the personal best time. I just love running. Englewood Elite Track Club founder and coach Danny Duncan, who has been training Perry for the past two years, said he is awaiting conrmation that the time is a record for 8-year-olds. I havent seen anything faster, Duncan said. Sean can be the best runner to come out of Englewood hands down. Perry and his brother, Jake, typically practice Monday and Wednesday with Duncan, Sean said. At practice Duncan has them run a lot of sprints. We do a lot of speed work to help develop faster turnover and to get him (Sean) faster, Duncan said. Children, I believe, should work on as much speed as they can while theyre young and most shouldnt run 5Ks. Sean is the exception. He can train for them. Duncan has helped Sean get more power into his stride. I had to lift my legs a little bit higher, said Sean, winner of the 9-and-under group at the Resolution Run 5K in January (21:32) and 18th overall. Now Im perfect with it. Verzbicas won the gold medal at the 2011 International Triathlon Union Junior World Championships and has run a 3:59 mile. He will meet with the Perry family in March to offer guidance about the boys running careers, Duncan said.Share an accomplishment with Barbara Boxleitner at BKLE3@aol.com.Youth could finish with a record runBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT RECREATIONAL SPORTS everyone take a hard fall today. That never happens. They should push it back is what they should do, and x it so we can showcase snowboarding the way it needs to be showcased. Not as a junk show, which is what it was looking like. The mens halfpipe competition is scheduled for tonight at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park with the women scheduled to compete Wednesday. Ofcials were planning to work through the night to improve the pipe, after a second straight day of uncharacteristic spills and unrestrained critiques. Shaun White, the twotime gold medal winner in the event, didnt try to hide his frustration following practice Monday night, calling the pipe disappointing. Its hard to get in there and have all the tricks and have everything that you need and not be able to get to the wall, he said. I just had a frustrating practice. Im hoping tomorrow will be better. Practice Monday was originally scheduled for the morning but was postponed so ofcials could work on the pipe. Later in the evening, riders said as practice progressed, the transitions grew increasingly bumpy, and the at surface area between the walls deteriorated. Teter likened it to a mogul eld. Many riders had trouble staying upright and gathering momentum between tricks. Thats not what halfpipe is supposed to be like, Teter said. People are supposed to be landing their tricks. Snowboarders said the pipe was actually improved from Sunday, the rst day of practice. The walls and curves received signicant work. One U.S. coach said the warm weather Monday helped the snow stick earlier in the day, but riders said after a single practice run the pipe worsened and snowboarders began to fear what conditions would be like during actual competition. American Danny Davis stopped short of calling the course dangerous: Its just not as fun. Under the current conditions, most said theyd have to alter their planned runs. White said hed have trouble throwing his cab double cork 1440. Im hoping for the best, he said. After two days of practices, riders say the Sochi Olympics pipe will force all riders to make adjustments. Many competed in a test event here last year and said the pipe was subpar at the time. A year later, its still noticeably different from what they see in regular competitions. Despite the conditions this week, four-time Olympian Kelly Clark said the Sochi pipe is actually an improvement over the one in Vancouver four years ago. AP PHOTOShaun White, getting air during a halfpipe training session on Monday, can become the seventh athlete to win three consecutive golds in an individual Winter Olympics sport.HALFPIPEFROM PAGE 1 I

But she was cleared and was granted a spot on the team. MENS HALFPIPE Shaun White is hoping to win this event for the third time. But the story is all the complaints the halfpipe is getting. White called it frustrating and another snowboarder called it a junk show. There was even some talk of postponing the event until things could be fixed. Thats not likely. WOMENS LUGE The U.S. may pick up its first medal in womens luge if things go right. After two of the four runs, Erin Hamlin sits in third place behind two women from Germany. Hamlin finished 12th in Turin in 2006 and 16th in Vancouver in 2010. Los Angeles Times STAT OF THE DAY61Mondays temperature along the Black Sea coast, and it was well above freezing in the mountains. The weather could get even warmer by the end of the week. Hoefl-Riesch wins 2nd gold in super-combined: Different American, same result for Maria Hoefl-Riesch another Olympic gold in the super-combined. Just as she did four years ago at the Vancouver Games, Hoefl-Riesch found herself trailing an American after the downhill leg before using her slalom skills to vault into first place and successfully defend her Olympic title in the dual-run event. The German finished less than a second ahead of both silver medalist Nicole Hosp of Austria and Julia Mancuso of the United States, who won the bronze. Mancuso won the silver four years ago in Vancouver. Mancuso, who finished 0.53 behind Hoefl-Riesch, won her fourth career Olympic medal in Alpine skiing. No other American woman has won more than two. Curlings fashion kings: The Norwegian men made their Sochi debut with another snazzy pattern on their pants a mixture of red, white, blue and gray squares and rectangles. Norway dazzled the U.S. 7-4, but the surprise of opening day was Switzerlands upset of defending champion Canada. On the womens side, Sweden defeated Britain 6-4 in a matchup of two favorites for the gold. Switzerland beat the United States 7-4 and Russia delighted its raucous fans by defeating Denmark 6-4 in the other first round-robin games. U.S., Canadian women advance in hockey: The United States romped to a 9-0 victory over Switzerland. all but clinching a spot in the Olympic womens hockey semifinals. Canada topped Finland 3-0 to ensure its spot in the semifinals. On Wednesday, the powers face off in preliminary play. They bring a history of competition, respect and, recently, a pair of fist-slinging brawls. Short-track firsts: Canada won its first gold medal of the games as veteran short-track speedskater Charles Hamelin won the 1,500 meters for his third different Olympic title. At 29, Hamelin was the oldest skater in the first final of the short track competition. He maintained a top-three position throughout most of the 14-lap race, leaving enough at the end to defeat a loaded field. Russia got its first short-track medal ever, thanks to Viktor Ahn, who captured the bronze for his adopted country. He won three golds for his native South Korea, but after missing the Vancouver Olympics, he changed his name and moved to Russia. J.R. Celski of Federal Way, Wash., was the highest U.S. finisher (fourth). Canadians also master moguls: Alex Bilodeau won his second consecutive gold medal in mens moguls, becoming the first repeat Olympics winner. Canadian teammate Mikael Kingsbury won the silver, giving the Canadians a 1-2 finish in both mens and womens moguls. Patrick Deneen of Cle Elum, Wash., was the highest U.S. finisher (ninth). Nyet for Bjoerndalen: Norways Ole Einar Bjoerndalen just missed what would have been a record 13th Winter Olympic medal, finishing fourth in the mens biathlon 12.5-kilometer pursuit. The event was won by Martin Fourcade, giving France its first gold. Tim Burke of Paul Smiths, N.Y., was the highest U.S. finisher (22nd). Bjoerndalen has several more shots in Sochi to win the medal that would put him one ahead of cross-country skiing great Bjoern Daehlie. The brothers, not Karamazov: Michel Mulder edged his teammate Jan Smeekens by 12-thousanths of a second in the mens 500, and Mulders twin brother Ronald got the bronze as the Dutch scored another speedskating sweep. Mulders victory earned him the title of fastest man on skates. Shani Davis of Chicago was the highest U.S. finisher (24th). The Netherlands also went 1-2-3 in the mens 5,000 and took the top spot in the womens 3,000. Associated PressMONDAYS HEADLINES SPOTLIGHT: Womens ski jumpingJumping into historySOCHI, Russia Ski jumping was one of the eight original sports at the rst Winter Olympics in 1924, but it has taken 90 years for women to take ight. They nally get their chance today, when womens ski jumping makes its Olympic debut on the normal hill at the RusSki Gorki Jumping Center. What took so long? Question of the century, said Sarah Hendrickson, the 2013 world champion. Sure, 20 years ago we didnt have enough women to have an event. I think we were ready in 2006 and denitely ready in 2010, but unfortunately they pushed it to 2014. But now weve made it. Along the way, women jumpers had to over come stereotypes that persisted even while the International Olympic Committee was adding womens boxing and wrestling to the Summer Games and extreme sports such as halfpipe and aerials to the Winter Games. As recently as 2005, Gian Franco Kasper, the president of the International Ski Federation, told an NPR reporter that ski jumping seems not to be appropriate for ladies from a medical point of view. I thought it was laughable, said Jessica Jerome, the U.S. Olympic trials champion. But there was nothing funny about the decade-long battle to get womens ski jumping on the Olympic program. Fifteen athletes, including Jerome and Lindsey Van, who won the rst womens world championship in 2009, led a lawsuit to compete at the 2010 Vancouver Games. It went all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada, which refused to hear an appeal. In 2011, at long last, the IOC announced that it would add womens ski jumping to the program for the Sochi Games. The ght that Lindsey and Jessica went through as athletes was never-ending, Hendrickson said. I give them so much credit for how strong they stayed. It would be so easy to just walk away and they stayed strong and paved the way for me. I cant thank them enough. Hendrickson, Jerome and Van will represent the United States and are keen to show the world they belong. I just want people to see that women can ski jump, Van said. Its one of the oldest sports in the Olympics and its taken 90 years for women to be here. Im just thrilled to show ski jumping to the world, and that women can do it. Hendrickson, 19, would have been a favorite to win gold if not for a training crash in Germany on Aug. 21 that left her with a devastating knee injury. She tore her ACL, tore her MCL off the bone, shredded 80 percent of her meniscus and underwent reconstructive surgery on Aug. 29. With Hendrickson hobbled, 17-year-old Sara Takanashi of Japan is the favorite to win the gold medal. The 5-foot, 99-pound Takanashi is No. 1 in the World Cup ranking. No matter who wins the rst Olympic medals, all the women will literally be jumping for joy. Of course, Im excited to be representing Team USA, Van said, but Im also very excited to be representing womens ski jumping. All of us are thrilled to be here. It was a long, uphill battle. From here on out, though, its all downhill.By GARY DAMATOMILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINELWomen ready for launch in Olympic event AP PHOTOJapans Sara Takanashi, the gold-medal favorite, jumps from the womens normal hill during a ski jump training session on Sunday. OLYMPICS: Julia MancusoThats M as in medalsKRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia For years, Julia Mancusos skiing accomplishments and there were many were overshadowed by Lindsey Vonns. When it comes to Olympic Alpine events, though, no American woman comes close. Turning in a terric run to lead after the downhill, then recovering from a rattling start in the slalom, Mancuso earned the bronze in the super-combined at the Sochi Games on Monday for her fourth medal at an Olympics. She already was the only U.S. female Alpine racer with more than two Vonns total. Skiing and growing up with someone like Lindsey, whos just amazing on the World Cup and breaking records left and right there to have something that I can break records in at the same time is also fun and exciting for me, said Mancuso, whose two-run time of 2 minutes, 35.15 seconds was 0.53 slower than champion Maria Hoe-Riesch of Germany. If I can keep the Olympics as my thing, thats ne, Mancuso said, and Im really proud of it. It sure showed Monday, the way she punched the air and screamed for joy after the slalom, did a jig on her step of the podium during the ower ceremo ny, then ran around with a U.S. ag, hugging family members. She is everything you want your athletes to be, said Bill Marolt, CEO of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association. She brings herself to her best possible level of preparation and puts it all out there. Only four women from anywhere own more Alpine medals than Mancuso, who can increase her total over the next two weeks, starting with Wednesdays downhill. The record of six is shared by Croatias Janica Kostelic and Swedens Anja Paerson. The 29-year-old Mancuso, who grew up in Squaw Valley, Calif., was asked whats different about her when shes in an Olympic start hut. I feel more nervous. Its not nerves of failure, its just nerves, she explained. Theres just a lot of emotion and knowing that, This is my chance. This is my shot. While Vonns resume includes 59 World Cup race victories and four overall titles, Mancuso has never enjoyed that sort of success. She has seven career World Cup wins, and struggled this season, never nishing better than seventh. You denitely start to doubt things, for sure. The best thing we could have done is take a break for Christmas and New Year and then get back into it, said Chris Knight, Mancusos personal coach on the U.S. team. It was like pressing the reset button for her, and it has worked.By HOWARD FENDRICHASSOCIATED PRESS WINTER 3PEATJulia Mancuso became the third U.S. Olympian to win an individual medal at three Winter Games. With her bronze Monday in the womens super-combined, Mancuso joined speedskater Bonnie Blair (1998 in Calgary, 1992 in Albertville and 1994 in Lillehammer) and short track star Apolo Anton Ohno (2002 in Salt Lake City, 2006 in Turin and 2010 in Vancouver). Mancuso also won gold in the giant slalom at Turin in 2006 and silvers in the super-combined and downhill at Vancouver in 2010.

Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, February 11, 2014 so were going to use the word distraction, Kluwe added. And unfortunately, those are the people who determine if youre employed or not. John Elway has a unique perspective running the Broncos front ofce now after a Hall of Fame playing career, and he said Monday hed have no problem drafting Sam. We will evaluate Michael just like any other draft prospect: on the basis of his ability, character and NFL potential. His announcement will have no effect on how we see him as a football player, Elway said. Having spent 16 years in an NFL locker room, the bottom line is that its about treating others with respect and earning that respect. By all indications, it appears Michael has done just that throughout his football career. Several coaches said if a player is accountable and a winner, being gay is a non-issue. If anybody can come in and help us win games and be successful black, white, yellow, straight, gay I dont think it matters, said new Green Bay quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt. Before Sam revealed his sexual orientation, the pass-rusher was projected as a mid-round draft pick. Kluwe said reports that Sams draft stock could drop now basically could have been lifted from any American sporting paper in the 1940s when Jackie Robinson was about to enter Major League Baseball. Its like weve been here before. Why do we have to keep doing the same thing? It would help Sam is landing on a team with strong veteran leadership, something that was lacking in Miami, where Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin walked away at midseason, alleging guard Richie Incognito led daily harassment with racial, aggressive and sexually charged comments. Incognito was suspended for the nal eight games and Martins career was thrown in limbo.HURDLESFROM PAGE 1 THE HAT TRICKRob Shore pondered the impact of Michael Sams announcement in The Hat Trick on Monday at suncoastsportsblog.com:Youd think NFL commissioner Roger Goodell or his henchmen will be whispering in the ear of whichever team who drafted Sam: Come on, the league needs this. Its a tough spot to be in. Or Sam can make a lot of this a non-issue with a fantastic workout at the combine and a training camp that leaves no doubt among NFL execs that he belongs. Well see where this leads this story sure isnt going to go away. GREEN BAY, Wis. Two years away from the sideline was enough for Ron Zook he wanted back in. So when Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy called with an opportunity to return to the profession in which he had worked more than three decades, Zook jumped at the chance to interview. McCarthy gave him the job. Meet the new assistant special teams coach for Green Bay. No, I didnt have to think about it at all, Zook said Monday at Lambeau Field. At Green Bay, hell assist special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum. No ego problems here, even if Zook was once the head coach of major college programs at Florida and Illinois. To me, I was able to get back in coaching for the reasons I got into coaching, Zook said. Because I love the game. You love the relationships you have with the players, the relationships you have with the coaches. The addition of Zook was part of a handful of offseason changes to McCarthys staff, necessitated in part by the departures of quarter backs coach Ben McAdoo to become offensive coordinator of the New York Giants; and outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene, who left to spend more time with family. But other than veteran defensive coordinator Dom Capers, few assistants on McCarthys staff have Zooks extensive experience. Zook will enter his 35th year in the profession, with his most notable stops as head coach at Florida (2002-4) and Illinois (2005-11). Hes 122-57 overall as a college head coach, including a trip to the Rose Bowl in 2007. But that 9-4 season with the Illini turned out to be the high point in Champaign. He was red after a 6-6 season in 2011. Since then, hes worked on a college show for CBS, and as business development ofcer for Gateway Bank in Florida. McCarthy noted Zooks energetic personality as one of a strength, and harkened back to their competitive days matching wits as coordinators. Thats something that I always admired of him and also frankly the fact that hes gone on and hes been a head coach and hes built two programs, McCarthy said. Thats something that I think will denitely be a benet to our program and a benet to myself. Around the league: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed quarter back Mike Kafka, a 2010 fourth-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles who played at Northwestern. The Bucs also waived guard/tackle Gabe Carimi, running back Michael Hill, quarterback Jordan Rodger and defensive tackle Derek Landri. Several Washington, D.C.-area lawmakers said they support a name change for the Washington Redskins, but none appeared inclined to support congressional action to do so. The New York Jets promoted Tony Sparano Jr. to offensive assistant, and added former safety Eric Smith as a seasonal intern.Zook eager for coaching returnBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NFL NOTEBOOKAP FILE PHOTORon Zook, in Nov. 12, 2011, le photo, rejoined the coaching ranks Monday with Green Bay. COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Miami 77, Florida St. 73Hurricanes outlast FSUTALLAHASSEE It was a must-win game for Florida State and Miami. Each team entered Mondays matchup needing to gain ground in the Atlantic Coast Conference standings. For two teams struggling to harness any kind of momentum in recent weeks, a victory could go a long way. FSU came out lethargic, while Miami played with desperation from the onset. The result was a 77-73 win by the Hurricanes (12-12, 3-8 ACC) on Monday night. FSU (14-10, 5-7 ACC) had difculty generating offense against Miamis two-three matchup zone and fell behind by 11 points in the rst half. FSU received various surges of momentum, but they could not overcome the early decit. Ian Miller, making his rst appearance since suffering an ankle sprain against Clemson on Feb. 1, rejuvenated the Seminoles, albeit briey. The senior guard came off the bench to score eight points in the nal three minutes of the rst half. FSU cut Miamis lead to 31-26, but Garrius Adams hit an open 3-pointer as time expired to give the Hurricanes a 34-26 halftime lead. Aaron Thomas made a jump shot to make the score 47-44 with 7:47 remaining in the game. But Adams responded with a 3-pointer to double Miamis advantage. The Seminoles did not get within four points after his bucket.

DeSoto Countys youth movement was over matched by Lemon Bay (2-1), which won all ve singles matches in 6-0 straight sets and the two doubles matches 8-0. The Manta Rays were led by senior Linda Antonova who took a 6-0, 6-0 victory over freshman Elizabeth Reyes at No. 1 singles. Antonova, who won the District 2A-11 No. 1 singles crown last season, is 3-0 this season. She played at No. 2 singles the rst two matches before moving up to No. 1 against the Bulldogs. She also teamed with No. 2 singles player Jessica Lown to win at No. 1 doubles. Lown was the district champion at No. 2 singles last season and teamed with Antonova to win the district title at No. 1 doubles. Its hard to say how Im doing compared to last season, Antonova said. We have some new players and its early yet. I think Im doing better with my serving though. Lown, her sister Sarah at No. 3, Maddie Casad at No. 4 and Ashley Tormey at No. 5 also won their singles matches. Sarah Lown and Casad won the No. 2 doubles match. Lemon Bay, which has qualied for the state tournament each of the last ve seasons, returns three starters from last season and several alternates. Its hard to say if were better than last season at this time, said Manta Rays coach Darrell Roach.

With ve Port Charlotte High School senior football players already signed with colleges and two more mulling offers, Ingman works hard to make Hobbs the eighth Pirate headed to play college football. A spreadsheet sits on Ingmans desk with three pages worth of junior colleges hes tried to talk to about Hobbs. Some are marked with an M, meaning that hes left a message, others marked with a T, meaning he talked to them. Ingman and his coaching staff do this for any player they think has a chance to play football at the next level. They compile highlight tapes to send to schools and contact as many schools as possible to see if those teams have a need a Pirate can meet. He takes the reins, honestly, Hobbs said about Ingman. He does it and I just thank him. Hes a good guy. I never really expected to play college football when we werent that good. What happened kind of snuck up on me. This reverse recruitment he does for his players is one aspect of the football-rst culture Ingman has created during his two years at Port Charlotte. The culture extends to weightlifting, which is coached by football defensive line coach Jarret Debus and has become an extension of football. Port Charlotte weightlifters are never asked to cut weight because that could hinder them from getting stronger for football season. Everybody buys into the that philosophy, Ingman said. Some of our weightlifting kids run track, too. In most weightlifting programs, they dont let their kids run because it hurts their lifting. Its well documented that if a kid is running a bunch of laps, hes not gonna bench as much because his chest is constantly working. But youve got to run track to get faster for football season, so, yes, its not as productive in weightlifting, but it is for football and thats what its all about. If Hobbs can sign with a junior college for football, weightlifting will be devoted to helping him get ready for football season. Until then, he has aspirations for his nal sports season as a Pirate. Im kind of just doing weightlifting for me, I guess thats the rst time Ive been doing that, Hobbs said. I want to place in states and I want to have over a 600 total this year by the end. I think thats pretty do-able, its twenty pounds on each. Hobbs took rst at the Sarasota Invitational last year and his best lift was 285 in the clean and jerk and 280 in the bench press. Hobbs and the Pirate football team made it to the regional nal last fall, but hes never made it to states in either sport. I want to go out with a bang, he said. I dont want to just wait four months before graduating, I want to do something great again before I graduate.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@ sun-herald.com.One really big lift ahead By ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITERHobbs hits the weights with his football prospects in the balanceCHARLOTTE SUN PHOTO BY ZACH MILLERPort Charlotte senior Jake Hobbs completes a lift in practice.

Two batters later, Emily Sims broke the deadlock with an RBI single. Naylor made it 4-2 with another RBI single. Two batters later, Morgan smashed a two-out single in the gap to score two and break the game open. Everybody was pumped up and I just had the feeling I could hit something and I just hit it, Morgan said. Stewart, Sims and Naylor had two hits for the Bobcats. Wier scored twice and drove in a run. North Port took a 1-0 lead in the top of the rst on a Kylie Bell RBI double down the left eld line off Charlotte starting pitcher Courtney Sunnarborg. Charlotte (2-2) battled back in the bottom of the second on RBI singles from Julie Dedrick and Samantha Burnett to make it 2-1, which held until the fth. The Tarpons outhit North Port 10-9. Samantha Burnett had three singles and an RBI. But it didnt seem like the same team that won backto-back games on the road to coach Greg Higgins. We made mistakes we havent made and well learn from them, Higgins said. The attitude was different tonight, not like it has been. We have a big game with Lemon Bay (tonight) and some of them werent here.NORTH PORT 6, CHARLOTTE 2North Port 100 050 0 6 9 1 Charlotte 020 000 0 2 10 3 Courtney Naylor, Vanessa Morgan (3) and Mor gan Weir.
