T AW T e moved to Punta Gorda a
\ year ago aini1d 's/i's, i/ed to
the Charlotte Sun. We have
found it to be a great newspaper and
our experiences
./ with the staff and
Sdeliverers have been
extra good. I notice
that you are great
Sat communicating
j with us so I am do-
ing something I have
never done before -
stating my feelings
David about the newspaper
David "I notice that your
DUNN-RANKIN coverage of high
PRESIDENT AND PUBLISHER school sports are
outstanding. Great
pictures and lots of words and score infor-
mation. Four and a half pages sometimes.
I am sure your efforts are appreciated.
However, I would guess that there are
more retirees getting your paper than
high school related people. Personally,
at this time of my life I really have little
interest in high school sports.
"I am not one to get on the Internet or
desktop tofind out what is happening in
sports. Television doesn't take the place
of newspapers for me. I depend on my
newspaper and my wife and Igo to sleep
at night looking forward to having our
coffee and breakfast while enjoying the
Charlotte Sun. I hate electronics. I love
newspapers. I hope you can find a way to
give us more information on college and
professional sports particularly college
sports and hopefully it won't have to
cut back too much on the high school
sports.
"Thanks for listening and thanks for
being a communicator." ESP
I think we run more high school sports
- and more high school sports on the
front page of sports than any paper I
know of. It is not enough, ESP
I know you may find this hard to
believe, but this winter season we got
chewed out by fans of high school sports
because we missed covering a game.
How could we not make sure their kids
were in the paper and on the front page?
As a guest at a local Rotary event I
asked what we could do to make the
paper better. The gentleman to my
right suggested more Penn State sports
would be helpful. There are many of our
readers who feel the same as the two of
you.
We think the long-term solution to
this challenge is to have a high school
sports section twice a week that people
can subscribe to plus a national sports
section that people can also subscribe to
separately. We are building a very sophis-
ticated mailroom system that can create
custom newspapers for each house. We
should know in about a year if we can
make all of our sports readers happy.

Open House kudos
We had a wonderful open house and
car show earlier this month. We had more
than a thousand visitors and several
hundred toured the newspaper facility.
The music by Power Outage Continues
and Jimmy Mazz was worth bringing a
blanket and chairs just to enjoy the free,
three-hour concert.
It takes a village of volunteers to put on
this event at our offices. Thank you to just
some of the volunteers, including John
Aguiar, Dick Brown, Rose Coleman, Clyde
Goodall, Steve Kuhn, Don Langford,
Linda Langford, Robert "Ozzie" Osborne,
Ron Phillips, Dee Ann Roberts, Wayne
Roberts, LynnWintermeyer, DougWood,

Report: Teen cuts man


Boy, 13, faces attempted murder in knife attack


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
ENGLEWOOD -A 13-year-old boy is
accused of attempted first-degree mur-
der after an attack in which authorities
say he slashed the neck of a neighbor-
hood jogger with a 15-inch bread knife.
The 54-year-old victim, who told
authorities he had seen the suspect
"grow up from a toddler," was jogging
along Lemon Avenue and Bayshore
Drive around 5:40 p.m. Tuesday when


the incident occurred, according to the
Sarasota County Sheriff's Office.
The victim saw the teenage boy in
a red hooded sweatshirt standing on
the street corner. The boy began to run
behind him. When the boy caught up
to the victim, he grabbed the man's left
shoulder and slashed the right side of
his neck, a sheriff's report stated. The
victim elbowed the teen, knocking him
to the ground, and then chased after
him. As the teen fled, he allegedly threw
a 15-inch bread knife with a serrated


edge at the victim. Investigators later
recovered the knife.
The victim went to a neighbor, who
called 911. The report stated the victim
suffered a 6-inch gash that required
14 stitches. SCSO investigators said the
attack was unprovoked.
Deputies went to the boy's home,
where family members said he had
left the house after an argument. He
came back, changed clothes and left

Schools vs. trades: two edges


By PAUL FALLON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The owner of an electrical contract-
ing business in Englewood believes
a shortage of skilled laborers in
Southwest Florida can partially be
blamed on the education system.
Mike Looney, owner of Michael J.
Looney Electric in Englewood is
worried about what this shortage will
mean to businesses.


"It's scary," Looney said. "I don't see
the youth coming in here looking for a
job."
Looney places some of the blame on
young people, saying many don't see
construction trades as a viable profes-
sion. But he also blames the education
system for pushing students toward a
college education regardless of their
aptitude.
"When I was a kid, high school
counselors saw which kids really didn't


have the aptitude for college and they
would push them toward a trade,"
Looney said.
Charlotte County Public Schools
superintendent DougWhittaker denies
teachers are pushing kids away from
the trades, and instead parents are
the ones steering all children toward
college.

SARASOTA COUNTY- Synthetic
drugs known as "K2," "Spice" and
"Kratom" are now illegal in Sarasota
County after Sarasota County
Commissioners unanimously adopted a
ban on designer drugs Wednesday a
move that mirrors an ordinance passed
in Charlotte County late last year.


The ordinance bans the manufac-
ture, transport, display, sale or posses-
sion of substances many mimicking
the look of marijuana outright in the
county. Previously, the Florida Attorney
General's office banned certain
chemicals used to make the drugs, but
manufacturers would simply alter the
chemical make-up and continue to sell
the product. Now it's illegal across the
board.


The synthetic marijuana was found
to contain "AB-PINACA," a chemical
dubbed an illegal substance by State
Attorney General Pam Bondi.
Mel Thomas, a planner with the
county's Health and Human Services
department, said Wednesday that
the American Association of Poison
Control is calling synthetic drug use a

first Steve Fest


By CHRIS PORTER
EXECUTIVE EDITOR

PUNTA GORDA-
"Sooner or later," sings
Michael Tolcher. "We'll be
looking' back on every-
thing. And we'll laugh
about it like we knew
what all was happening."
I have a feeling some
of us who go to Steve
Fest on Sunday will
be looking' back and
laughing. That's usually
how it goes. Probably by
Monday morning.
So, did you hear? Steve
Fest is back.
The funky, folky little
concert series kicks off
another season (What
is this, the sixth? Is that
even possible?) Sunday
afternoon at the Punta
Gorda Woman's Club.
Local fave Still Friends
will open the show.
The group these days is
Carrie Blackwell Hussey
singing and playing
mandolin; Tiffiny Coffey
singing and playing
guitar; Japhy Blackwell
on saxophones; and
Reed Coffey on bass,
lead guitar and banjo.
Sweet harmonies on

Every time I see them,
they get better.
Tolcher will take over
from there.
If you've never been
to a Steve Fest, here are
some things you should
know about this particu-
lar concert series:
You don't need
to dress up fancy or
anything.
You don't need a lot of
money- it's $10 to get
in, or $20 if you want to
treat your sweetie.
You can bring a small
cooler with your own
beverages.
Kids are welcome.
Excellent face-painting
usually happens.
The venue may
change, but it will be
cool.
Dancing is an option.
(Although, we under-
stand it's a certainty
for local attorney and
radio personality Mike
Haymans.)
And even though you
may know nothing about
the headlining act before
you get there, you'll most
likely end up enjoying
them. You'll probably
want to buy one of their
CDs to take home.

The venue this time
out is the beautiful,
historic Punta Gorda

118 Sullivan St. It's got a
little stage and a wooden
floor that's great for
dancing. It's also got its
own chairs, so you don't
need your canvas one.
Another added
touch for this Steve

covered-dish soul food
dinner. Now, what's
cooler than that? If you
want in, bring a dish to
share. That will happen
at about 5:30 p.m.,
between Still Friends and

Students win anti-bullying contest


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER
MURDOCK -Port
Charlotte Middle School
nearly swept a national
competition for an
anti-bullying test.
At a Charlotte County
School Board meeting
Tuesday night, Dan
McIntosh, assistant prin-
cipal at Port Charlotte
Middle School, said
sixth- and seventh-grade
students in the school
took first place in scores
nationally, and an
eighth-grade student
took second place. "It was
that close to a winning
sweep," McIntosh said.
"We treat (bullying)


very seriously, and it's
something our students
take seriously as evi-
denced by performance
in this competition," he
said.
The competition is part
of Bullying Academy, a
nonprofit that aims to
educate students on how
to identify, respond to,
and report bullying.
Using the program was
"a no-brainer," McIntosh
said, because Walser Law
Firm of Boca Raton of-
fered to pay the program
fee for any Florida school
that wished to use it.
'Anybody can be a
bully, big or small. One
big thing a lot of them
didn't realize is the


online bullying that's
going on," said Milisa
Marcoguiseppe, a com-
puter science teacher at
the school.
When asked if it was
surprising to see a middle
school score so well, Mike
Desjardins, director of
secondary learning, said:
"Not really. Because we've
done a really good job in
Charlotte County in terms
of getting on top of the
issue of bullying, ... we've
really jumped ahead of
most counties in the state
as far as how seriously we
take the issue."
The bullying education
is part of a county and
statewide push to make
students aware of the


avenues available for
reporting bullying.
Desjardins said every
school website has a bul-
lying reporting system,
which allows students
to make anonymous
reports. All staff receive
training on bullying pre-
vention and all schools
implement training for
students, either through
the School Resource
Officers, Bullying
Academy, or both as
was the case with Port
Charlotte Middle School.
The result of the
increased bullying
awareness, Mclntosh
said, is more accurate
reporting. "One thing
we've noticed this year is


less reported incidents of
bullying, ... so one thing
the training has done (is
teach students) what is
and what is not bullying."
That difference,
Mclntosh said, was
laid out in the Jeffrey
Johnston Stand Up for All
Students Act, a Florida
statute that lays out the
definition of bullying.
Under the act, bullying
can be physical, verbal
or cyber, Mclntosh said,
and is defined by char-
acteristics as a recurring
pattern of behavior and
an imbalance of power
between a bully and
victim.
"What history has
shown us is the severity


of these cases when they
go unnoticed is absolute-
ly horrible," Mclntosh
said, so identifying them
early is important.
Once school officials
know about a case of
bullying, Mclntosh said
the first step in dealing
with the problem is noti-
fying the parents of both
the bully and the victim.
Generally, some conse-
quences are assigned to
the bully, along with an
education component to
prevent the problem from
happening in the future.
Finally, the school and
victim work out a "safety
plan," with strategies to
avoid further bullying.

Report: Man severely injures baby


By ADAM KREGER
BY STAFF WRITER

CHARLOTTE
HARBOR -A Port
Charlotte man babysit-
ting for an ex-girlfriend
on Feb. 5 has been
accused
of slam-
ming her




boned
iue hard that
eROCA the baby
bounced
onto the floor and
suffered serious head
injuries, according to
the Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office.
Michael Ivan Roca,
22, of the 1400 block of
Kensington Street, was
arrested Tuesday and
is being held without
bond at the Charlotte


County Jail on a charge
of child abuse.
The baby's mother
said her daughter was
having trouble sleeping
the night of Feb. 5,
wouldn't eat the next
morning and threw
up twice, the report
shows. So she took her
to Bayfront Health Port
Charlotte, where a CAT
scan revealed the child
had a fractured skull,
subdural hematoma
and other indications of
trauma.
The Emergency
Room doctor deter-
mined the baby's
injuries were so severe,
the child was sent to
All Children's Hospital
in St. Petersburg for
further testing. The
baby was examined
and released, but her
mother said she may
not be in the clear.


"The doctors said
there could be a possi-
bility of brain damage
and she may have a
learning disability
later on," said Amanda
Amburgery, who was
home Wednesday with
her smiling, lively
daughter.
Roca was babysit-
ting the night of the
alleged incident so
Amburgery could go to
the Charlotte County
Fair with her roommate.
According to authori-
ties, Roca initially said
the baby rolled off the
bed.
"He's had like three
different stories," said
Amburgery. "None of
them make any sense."
Roca had been
babysitting the girl
about four times a week
for five months, and
the mother said her


daughter didn't seem
to have any problems
early on.
"She's been OK with
him, but she was acting
strange lately," said
Amburgery.
About a month ago,
Amburgery's child be-
came "afraid of (Roca),"
according to investi-
gators, and the baby
would "scream and cry
anytime she was around
(Roca)."
A doctor specializing
in child abuse patients
at All Children's deter-
mined the "injuries (the
victim) sustained were
a result of some type of
blunt-force trauma to
the back of the head,
and it was highly unlike-
ly caused by her rolling
off the bed or by being
dropped," according to
the report. Authorities
believe Roca was upset


because the child was
crying too much.
A Department of
Children and Families
investigator referred
the case to the Sheriff's
Office after learning
of the child's injuries
at the hospital in Port
Charlotte.
"Sadly, cases like
this one happen far
too often," said DCF
spokeswoman Natalie
Harrell. "When some-
one lets anger get out
of control, one hard hit
or shake can seriously
injure a small child.
"DCF is working
closely with local law
enforcement on the
investigation into this
child's injuries."
Roca's arraignment
is set for March 24 at
the Charlotte County
Justice Center.

SUN CORRESPONDENT

If you're not familiar
with the Charlotte Harbor
Parrot Head's Club,
anyone can tell you they
know how to party.
Once a month, the
group gets together
at the Port Charlotte
Moose Lodge Tiki Bar.
Members dress in their
parrot-themed clothing,
listen and dance to a fea-
tured trop-rock musician,
enjoy a "cheeseburger in
paradise" or another meal,
and beverages.
Sounds like fun, right?
Yes, it is.
But there's another
reason they do it. As a
division of Parrot Heads in
Paradise, they form a non-
profit group that is char-
itable and educational,
and promotes the general
welfare of the community.
It also provides a variety of
social activities for people
who are interested in the
music and writings of
Jimmy Buffet and other
trop-rock musicians, and
the tropical lifestyle they
personify in their music.
Parrot Head groups
started with one club in
Atlanta, and have grown
to over 200 clubs around
the United States, and
international clubs based
in Canada and Australia.
Charlotte Harbor Parrot
Head Club, which was
started in August of 2007
by current board member
Tracy Lehn, is currently
the second-largest club
in the world, with nearly
600 members.

But life is just so different, now that you have gone.
How much we really miss you, no words could ever say.
You're always in our thoughts, today and every day.
Today is your birthday, we'll shed a silent tear,
Of all the happy memories of times when you were here.

Gulf Cove shoots down paintball games


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

GULF COVE If
the members of the
Property Owners
Association of Gulf
Cove had carried
paintball guns Tuesday,
Mike Koenig and Jim
Senseman would have
looked like a Jackson
Pollock abstract
painting.
More than 200 res-
idents attended the
association's meeting
Tuesday, when Koenig,
a Charlotte County
parks and recreation
resource coordinator,


and Senseman, owner
of Allstar Paintball,
broached the idea of
Senseman staging paint-
ball competitions and
activities in the county's
undeveloped Myakka
River Park, located at
Gallagher Boulevard and
Spire Street in Gulf Cove.
Koenig and Senseman
explained how the
paintball games would
only use less than
40 acres of the 132-acre
park property and be
held on the weekends
between 9 a.m. and
6 p.m. Senseman would
sign monthly leases with
the county and pay the


county $190 a month for
the use of the property.
Senseman would be
only one of the private
vendors with whom
the county now works.
Koenig said: "The
county commissioners
decided they wanted to
adopt a position of be-
ing 'open for business.'
One of the things we
were told as employees
was that we were not
to automatically say no
when someone came to
us with an idea."
Senseman explained
how the marble-size
paintballs made of a
gelatin substance and


food coloring were
not toxic and wouldn't
harm wildlife. His cus-
tomers are parents stag-
ing birthday parties for
their children, churches
and other groups. An
average of 10 to 40 peo-
ple participate in any
one event, he said.
"You're talking about
families with good kids,"
he said. 'And we will put
a good, watchful eye on
the property."
But the residents
wanted no part of paint-
ball in Gulf Cove.
Jayson Burtch, an
association board
member, appeared


the most sympathetic
to Senseman, saying
he and his family had
played paintball games.
But Burtch also said
paintball activities
were not suited for Gulf
Cove.
Others echoed the
sentiment, "Why Gulf
Cove?" Koenig explained
county staff reviewed
other properties that
proved unsuited for
paintball activities for
a variety of reasons. He
was specifically asked
if MurdockVillage was
considered.
"We were told
(Murdock Village) was


not an option," Koenig
said. "But I want you to
know we did look at it."
That could change.
Commissioner
Stephen R. Deutsch
attended the meeting
and said, "It seems to
me that (paintball)
doesn't belong here, and
I will work with you all
to try to make it happen
in Murdock Village."
However, Deutsch did
suggest he is only one of
five commissioners to
make that decision. He
also asked the residents
to recognize Koenig was
"just doing his job."

DRUGS

risk to the public health
and a hazard to public
safety. Reports of the
drugs first surfaced in
the United States in
2008.
Thomas said a recent
survey showed that
21.7 percent of Sarasota
County's high school
students in the county
have used synthetic
marijuana, a figure that
shows the accessibility
to the drugs. That's
compared to 13 percent
statewide. According
to the Sarasota
County Community
Alliance's Behavioral
Health Stakeholder's
Consortium 2013
K2/Spice Survey,
19.3 percent of 14- to
18-year-olds surveyed


have tried K2/Spice.
"There's no redeeming
benefits to this type
of stuff and there's no
arguments being made
that this somehow pro-
vides medical benefits,"
Commission Chairman
Charles Hines said of
the designer drugs. "I'm
kind of disgusted that
our local stores would
sell this to our kids and
promote it the way
they've done. It's sad
that we have to have a
law like this."
Part of Wednesday's
discussion focused on
a newer synthetic drug
called Kratom, a natural,
herbal psychotropic
stimulant and opioid
substitute. Thomas said
Kratom is highly ad-
dictive, with symptoms
ranging from dry mouth
to hallucinations. It
has been banned in the
U.S. Army and Navy. It


is found in many of the
same places that sell
synthetic marijuana.
Cathinones more
commonly referred to as


"bath salts," which are
from an emerging family
of drugs containing an
amphetamine-like stim-
ulant with effects similar


to methamphetamines,
ecstasy or cocaine are
also banned under the
ordinance.
The Sheriff's Office
will enforce the ordi-
nance, which typically
will involve a fine and
be punishable as a
second-degree misde-
meanor if the officer
deems the offense to
be criminal. Businesses
who sell the drugs will
be fined $250 per packet,
and could risk losing its
certificate of occupancy.
Private citizens can also
enforce the ordinance as
a "private attorney gen-
eral" while they report
violations to authorities.
Sarasota County
Commissioner Christine
Robinson said she
wished the county wasn't
put in the position to
create a designer drug
ordinance, calling it "a
shame." Commissioner


Nora Patterson said
it is something that
has to be done while
Commissioner Carolyn
Mason, who represents
the commission on
the county's Juvenile
Justice Council, said she
was ecstatic about the
ordinance. Mason said
that she's heard several
negative things about
the designer drugs from
the Safe and Drug Free
Schools Committee.
"This is a terrible
problem and we've got
to do something about
it," Robinson said. "The
state is struggling and
this is something that
we've got to get in front
of. I think this is a good
step for our community,
but I'm concerned that
we still have folks out
there who are trying
to market this to our
youth."

DESIGNER DRUGS IN THE NEWS
Prior to Sarasota County's passing of an ordinance that bans
designer drugs in the county, authorities had already been cracking
down on use of the synthetic drugs in the area. In January, North Port
Police seized nearly 700 pounds of synthetic marijuana with a street
value estimated at $2.2 million from the home of North Port Chevron
gas station manager Sayed Mohammed Jan. Jan, 33, was charged
with possession of a controlled substance, sale or manufacture of a
controlled substance, sale or manufacture of a controlled substance
within 1,000 feet of a church, and renting a structure to manufacture,
sell or traffic drugs. He is also being investigated by Immigration and
Customs Enforcement, which could lead to deportation.
Earlier this week, 42-year-old Venice resident Alton Michael Haynes
was arrested for reportedly manufacturing synthetic marijuana from
his business, Maximum Overdrive, LLC, according to a Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office report. Haynes was charged with two counts of posses-
sion of a controlled substance with intent to sell (synthetic marijuana),
and sale of a controlled substance.
Last October, police say a Cape Coral man, Christopher Rounds,
25, had been drinking and smoking K2 prior to physically abusing
a 6-month-old and spraying the infant with Windex in Sarasota,
according to a sheriff's report.

Elections office




notifies voters




of email glitch


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT
COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR

NORTH PORT-
Hundreds of voters were
notified by the Supervisor
of Elections that they had
received their absentee
ballots for the March
special election.
However that wasn't the
case.
In an email addressed
to voters Tuesday
morning, it explained
that during a test of the
absentee ballot notifica-
tion system, they received
an erroneous email from
the Sarasota County
Supervisor of Elections
Office indicating they
received absentee ballots
by mail for the March 25
election.
"In fact, we have
received your request for
a (vote-by-mail) ballot
for the March 25 election
and will be mailing the
ballot to you on February
18," according to the
follow-up email from the
county Absentee Ballot
Department.


According to Sarasota
County Supervisor of
Elections Kathy Dent, the
original message should
have read "we received
their request, not ballot."
"We have not mailed
any ballots yet, so none
were compromised,"
she said. "It was just a
mistaken email. All voters
that received the message
received a new message
indicating the error."
Voters can track the
status of their ballots
once they are in at www.
SarasotaVotes.com.
North Port resident
Wendy Namak said she
received the first email at
5:24 a.m.
"It took them six hours
and 12 minutes to notify
us of the error," she said.
"(It's a) pretty long time
to think that your vote got
hacked, eh?"
Dent said the error
message went out at
11:30 a.m.
"We apologize for the
confusion," she said.
The Sarasota County
School District is asking
voters to renew the


1-mill tax in March. The
referendum first was
approved by voters in
2002, then renewed in
both 2006 and 2010. The
referendum doesn't ask
voters to pay more, just
the same amount as they
have been for the 1-mill
tax since 2002.
The Sarasota County
School Board members
said it wasn't possible
to hold a referendum
vote during the general
election in November
because that would come
too late for the budgeting
process, and also would
impede the hiring of
teachers.
Renewing the tax will
continue to pay for art,
music, theater and phys-
ical education teachers,
as well as guidance
counselors.
For more information
about the referendum
and how Sarasota schools
spend those dollars, visit

City seeks feedback on



Biscayne landscaping


Provided by ERIN BRYCE
NORTH PORT COMMUNITY
OUTREACH MANAGER

NORTH PORT -The
city is initiating a neigh-
borhood improvement
project to make enhance-
ments to the median
along Biscayne Drive, and
tonight is asking residents
to provide feedback on
layouts and plantings
being considered.
Residents are invited to
attend an informational
public meeting from
6 p.m. to 8 p.m. today
at the Morgan Family
Community Center,
6207W. Price Blvd. The
project's landscape archi-
tect, Johnson Engineering


Inc., will be presenting a
preliminary list of possi-
ble plantings and alter-
native layouts along the
1.5-mile stretch between
Eylton Drive to East
Safford Terrace. The goal
of the project is to en-
hance the aesthetics along
Biscayne, one of the city's
major arterial roadways
that connects several of
the city's neighborhoods.
The city has budgeted
roughly $250,000 for the
enhancement.
Two landscaping
concepts have been de-
veloped for presentation.
One is a curvilinear medi-
an planting in which the
design consists of several
curves in the landscaping


lines. The other is a more
formal median planting
that has a square look
with hardscape surfaces.
Each layout considers
segments of median that
are narrow and wide.
Residents also will be
presented with a recom-
mended plant list.
Those who cannot
attend the meeting
are invited to provide
feedback on the project
using the city's citizen
engagement website,
www.yournorthport.com.
Follow the instructions
to create an account and
join the discussion.

contact North Port Public
Works at 941-240-8050.

I OUR VIEW

More grist

for red-light

camera debate

OUR POSITION: A new study
questions benefits and highlights
the costs of intersection cameras.
A legislative analysis re-
leased this week should
fuel efforts to repeal a
2010 law that allows cities and
counties to install red-light
cameras throughout Florida.
The report is inconclusive -
these reports always seem to be
inconclusive.
Overall, though, the takeaway
is that the cameras aren't neces-
sarily as effective as advertised.
The one undeniable impact is
that they cost drivers millions
in fines and boost government
revenues. As we've maintained
before, they are cash machines
with questionable public
benefit.
The study was done by the
Legislature's Office of Program
Policy Analysis & Government
Accountability. It was prepared
at the behest of state Sen. Jeff
Brandes, R-St. Petersburg,
who wants to repeal the Mark
Wandall Traffic Safety Act of
2010. That act, which was
tweaked last year, authorized
use of the automated red-light
cameras by local governments.
Cameras have been installed
in the city of Sarasota, but
nowhere else in Sarasota County
and nowhere in Charlotte
County.
Seventy-four municipalities
and five counties now use
cameras. They are installed at
the approaches to 922 intersec-
tions. Most were put in after the
passage of the Wandall Act.
The data shows:
At intersections on state
roads with cameras, there was
a 49 percent drop in crashes
resulting in fatalities (37 before
activation, compared to
19 after). That is undoubtedly
impressive and will be the
number seized by advocates.
However, there was only a
1 percent decrease in crashes
resulting in injuries.
There was an 84 percent
drop in sideswipe crashes and a
28 percent decrease in head-on
crashes. But those typically
have nothing to do with red-
light cameras.
On the other hand, rear-end
crashes increased 35 percent
(4,032 to 5,454) and T-bone
crashes considered the
most dangerous increased
22 percent. "Other" crashes also
increased 12 percent.
Red-light camera revenues
going to the state's General
Fund have increased from
$16.6 million in the 2010-2011
fiscal year to $52.6 million
in 2012-2013. (The ticket for
running a red light is $158, with
$83 going to the state.)
Counties and cities have
seen revenue rise over the same
time from $17.8 million to
$56.4 million.
Overall camera revenues
(two other state funds receive
a slice) have risen from
$37.6 million to just under
$119 million.
Fifteen jurisdictions ac-
counted for half of local camera
revenues last year. Leading the
way were Miami ($5.8 million),
Miami Gardens ($2.9 million)
and Tampa ($2.8 million).
Nearly 50 percent of the
local revenue went to private
contractors who install and
operate the program.
The study recommended that
cities and towns be required
to institute longer yellow-light
periods before installing a cam-
era. This is often the simplest
and most direct way of reducing
crashes. The report also sug-
gested municipalities should
have to demonstrate specific
safety needs before installing
cameras.
Fuel for the debate. Overall,


though, our impression is this
study feeds the argument that
cameras are little more than
revenue-generating devices.

reading an article in the Herald
section about two doctors. I
was unaware that they owned
the building which houses
their practices. It is pleasing to
the eye with the landscaping in
front, and the entire structure,
in being well-kept.
This was a very well-written
article, with thanks to Dan
Mearns. I always enjoy reading
your newspaper, but this
was so well done that I was
compelled to congratulate the
author and the newspaper
staff, as well as the two doctors.
Thank you for a job well done.
Also, kindly send my thanks
to the doctors for their part in
keeping that piece of Parkside
in such a pleasing area.

U.S. becoming
socialist country
Editor:
The ending of President
Obama's State of the Union
speech was the best part.
The wonderful tribute to a
hero. However, I have read
fact-checks regarding what
the president claimed in his
speech and when you cannot
believe what the president of
the United States says, that's a
big problem.
As Michael Barone pointed
out, Obama stated women
make 77 cents for every dollar
that a man earns. Today the
number is about 95 cents.
Obama complained about cli-
mate change and the tempera-
tures have not increased over
the last 15 years. He failed to


mention 2.3 million Americans
lost jobs due to Obamacare,
a failure no one will be held
accountable for, just as no one
has been held accountable for
Benghazi and the IRS. However,
one thing will never change,
Obama loves to talk. In this
speech, although not the lon-
gest, he used 6,778 words that
took an hour to deliver. The
"I" word will never completely
leave his repertoire, but at least
there was only about 50 of
them in this speech. If Obama
did the things he claims he
will do, his speeches would be
easier to listen to.
If you watched the interview
Obama had with O'Reilly, it is
hard to believe our president is
the same person who spoke of
transparency not too long ago.
He is certainly not the Obama
that was in the Senate and he is
turning America the land of the
free into a socialist country.

911 Dispatch
was unduly slow
Editor:
On Feb. 9, an article regard-
ing outsourcing of 911 calls
indicated that the police chief
disagrees with the North Port
commissioners concerning
this matter, as he feels the
response time may seriously
affect those needing help.
I agree.
On Jan. 8, Holiday Park
had a medical emergency in
the evening when one of the
bingo callers collapsed. 911
was dialed requesting an am-
bulance. The dispatcher had
no idea where Holiday Park
was. This city is not so large
that a dispatcher within the
city would not know Holiday
Park's location nor what is
meant by "the clubhouse at
Holiday Park." The caller was
unable to give the dispatcher
a number for the clubhouse.
She described the location
as being on the right hand
side of Tuscola, just inside the
gate. The dispatcher insisted
a street number was needed
and wasted time almost
causing disastrous results for
the stricken man.
Holiday Park has
residents ranging from 55 to
100-plus years. We should
have had a visible number
inside the building, as the
one above the portico was
not where it could quickly be
seen. That situation has since
been rectified.
Time was wasted that did
not make this a medical di-
saster. The response time was
15 minutes, when it should


have only taken seven or eight
minutes.
Is saving money worth more
than saving a life?

GOP lacks
decency, morals

Editor:
How disgusting is it that the
official Republican response
to the president's State of
the Union address is based
on a big fat lie. We should all
be outraged that on such an
otherwise auspicious occa-
sion, all Republicans can do
is continue fabricating lies
about our president. Worse,
they then present these fabri-
cations on national television
as if they were true.
I do not see how any good
American could possibly vote
for a party with such a lack of
decency and morals.

Placing burden
on taxpayers

Editor:
A recent letter to the editor
called for going back to the
"good ol' days" that included
trying a few "free-market ideas."
Do free-market ideas
include businesses getting a
full tax break, such as what
PGT Industries will get for the
next 10 years? And, of course,
it's the lowly taxpayers who
will be asked to make up that
difference.
Come to think of it, wasn't it
just last summer that members
of the Venice City Council
(the ones who granted the
10-year no-tax break) were
considering a tax hike for its
residents? Maybe someone can
explain the logic behind giving
businesses tax breaks simply
because they provide jobs.
Businesses are in the
business of making money.
Businesses need people to
work for them in order to gen-
erate sales which, in turn, gen-
erate profits for the business.
When a business is doing well
and wants to expand (such
as in the case of PGT) so they
can realize even more profits,
they need to employ people so
they can generate the revenue
that will give them even more
profit. So why are they entitled
to taxpayer-funded "incen-
tives" and get to pass along
their tax bill onto the resident
taxpayers?
If businesses don't get a
"no-tax" ride courtesy of the


taxpayers, will they close their
doors or not expand? PGT has
reported annual sales of over
$80 million. So why are the
taxpayers picking up their tax
burden?

Musical'Shrek'
is a must-see

Editor:
A befuddled ogre; a
wise-cracking donkey; a stun-
ning princess; an "altitude
challenged" wanna-be-king;
and a 9-foot purple dragon.
Charlotte High School dra-
ma's presentation of "Shrek"
is not your typical high school
musical, to be sure. So just
what is this fractured fairy tale?
It's hilarious. Visually stun-
ning. Emotionally powerful.
And frankly, a must-see. No
spoiler alert required because
I won't disclose all the laughs,
stunts, effects and touching
moments along the way. Just go.
"Shrek: The Musical" is play-
ing at CPAC through Feb. 16.

Pushing luck
relying on law

Editor:
While it might be nice to be
right, but dead right not so
much.
In their effort to exert their
"right," many bicycle riders
in PGI are pushing their luck
by relying too much on the
three-foot rule. Bike riders
are supposed to follow motor
vehicle traffic laws, which
include giving signals when
turning and stopping at stop
signs. But rather than do so,
they flaunt their road rights
and put themselves in danger.
Why ride in the middle of
the lane deliberately blocking
through traffic (rather than at
the road's edge) when there is
no bike lane? Better yet, why
not use the sidewalk when no
bike lane exists and there is
no pedestrian traffic?
Obviously, we need many
more bike lanes, but until we
have them common safety
sense should be the rule.

New world,
new thinking

Editor:
This is the new world. There
are no more countries because
that's old thinking. There are
just economic realities, profit
and loss, efficiency and waste.
The world is now made up
of global geographical sites
which work as a connective
communicational roundtable
sharing data and business
relationships.
We as a nation are no longer
connected from the world's
fortunes and misfortunes which
guided our destiny in the past.
We are living in the future,
as is the rest of the planet.
Technological communication
has made this possible and
there is no turning back to the
way we communicated in the
old, disconnected venue.
As such, we all must realize
that this new-founded world
will rely on not how we speak
to each other, but how we
communicate information via
high-frequency modulated
sound waves.
This newly found meth-
od will demand a higher
educated work force which
will embrace the many new
demands required to fulfill the
new world's landscape.

VIEWPOINT

We can heal our troubled springs


To anyone who has
spent much time
in Florida, the de-
cline of our fresh water
springs is heartbreaking.
Clear pools are now
choked with algae. The
algae gets so thick it
shuts down glass bottom
boat rides because the
water's no longer clear
enough to see anything.
Swimming beaches at
the springs are suddenly
roped off with Health
Department signs, warn-
ing people of the health
threats from polluted
water.
When faced with
something this sad and
overwhelming, there's a
tendency to shrug our
shoulders and say it
is the inevitable result
of progress. After all,
New York City once had
bubbling streams and
oyster beds. But, in our
case, that is the wrong
way to think.
The truth is that
springs pollution is
both preventable and


reversible. We can
change this.
What we need is
political will a scarce
Florida resource but one
that each of us can culti-
vate. It is already starting
to happen. People have
been rallying throughout
the state to protest the
decline of our water
resources. In January,
people turned out in
force to demand clean
water at public events
in Boynton Beach,
Bradenton, Fort Myers,
Fort Pierce, Gainesville,
Interlachen, Jacksonville,
Key West, Palm Bay,
Naples, Ocala, Stuart,
Tallahassee, Tampa,
Vero Beach and Orlando.


A statewide rally for
clean water is planned
at the State Capitol in
Tallahassee Feb. 18.
They unveiled a new
Floridians' Clean Water
Declaration which lists
six rights that should
be guaranteed to the
people of Florida and
four responsibilities of
our state government,
water managers, and
natural resource users.
The campaign's goal
is to get as many indi-
viduals, organizations,
businesses, and elected
and appointed officials
as possible to sign the
Clean Water Declaration
and commit to work
together to achieve its
principles.
And politicians are
responding.
Four Florida Senate
committee chairmen last
month agreed to support
filing springs legisla-
tion. A draft bill would
direct an estimated
$378 million a year from
documentary stamp


tax revenue toward
sprongs protection. It
is encouraging, too, to
see that Gov. Rick Scott
earmarked $55 million
in his proposed state
budget this year for
springs protection.
Using public money
to protect our shared
public resource water
- makes sense. We're
way overdue on fixing
our outdated public
infrastructure.
But let's not lose sight
of the main thing we
need to do: Demand
that our leaders hold
polluters accountable.
Every day, factory farms
send fertilizer and
manure into our public
waters, when they could
be controlling this
pollution on-site. These
corporations must be
required to meet specific
pollution limits, and
they should face conse-
quences if they exceed
those limits and pollute
our water.
Instead, we are giving


them a free pass and
then the public pays for
their mess. Gov. Scott
and the Legislature have
been selling out to pol-
luters like never before.
Polluter lobbyists drafted
the state's rules on
sewage, manure and fer-
tilizer pollution, Scott's
administration adopted
the weak language, then
the Legislature approved
it.
Scott's administra-
tion also fired staffers
who dared to enforce
environmental laws,
replacing them with
people who come from
polluting industries.
Environmental enforce-
ment cases have plum-
meted. State regulators
now get bonuses if they
pump out permits faster.
Certain categories
of major polluters are
allowed to operate
on the honor system.
A big polluter like an
industrial plant would
be fined if it spilled
toxins into a river. But


that's not true for Florida
agricultural operations.
Florida allows them
to use voluntary goals
called "best manage-
ment practices." All the
corporation has to do is
say it is implementing a
plan to control pollution,
and it is exempt from
monitoring. It's as if you
were allowed to speed
on the freeway so long
as you gave the Highway
Patrol a "speed-limit
compliance plan."
It's great for politicians
to tell us they want to
protect the environment.
But we should all make it
clear that we want them
to set real, enforceable
pollution limits. That's
the only way we'll
reverse this mess and
heal our springs.

Let college students vote early at student union


ot too long ago,
any effort to
change election
law that seemed to re-
strict voting rights would
have been tantamount to
political suicide regard-
less of which party was
attempting the change.
But now there appears to
be no shame or fear.
For many years there
was an emphasis on
increasing voter turnout.
As Florida grew so did
the number of polling
places and the expan-
sion of voting methods.
Absentee ballots were
open to everyone,
not only to those who
could demonstrate they
were unable to vote on
Election Day. My party,
the Republican Party,
was quick to embrace
absentee voting and
expertly adapted to
campaigning to absentee
voters.
Early voting days were
added as a convenience
to those who found it
difficult to make it to the
polls on Election Day.
This appealed to those
working long or irregular
shifts and became pop-
ular among the working


class, younger voters and
minorities.
In a state as large as
Florida, with 19 million
residents and 12 million
registered voters, the
67 county supervisors of
elections strive to offer
more options and greater
convenience to boost
voter turnout. By increas-
ing voter opportunities,
they also reduce the wait
for those who prefer to
vote on the traditional
Election Day.
These constitutional
officers are responsible
for keeping accurate vot-
er rolls and for protecting
against the occurrence
of voter fraud. Over the
past few decades, voter
fraud has been virtually
nonexistent in Florida
elections.
Yet under the guise of
fighting this nonexistent


voter fraud, numerous
changes have been
proposed to Florida's
election laws. Many
of these provisions
have had predictably
bad results. In 2011, a
massive election reform
bill resulted in hours-
long waits during a
shortened early voting
period and on Election
Day, causing many voters
to give up.
However, some voters,
angered by what they
believed to be voter
suppression, organized
church members and
others affected by this
reduction in early voting
hours to show up to vote,
no matter how long the
wait, as a form of protest.
Embarrassed by the
national attention
and ridicule, Gov. Rick
Scott and the Florida
Legislature partially
undid some of the
damage contained in
the so-called reform bill.
That was a small step in
the right direction.
One change -
requested by the voting
experts, the supervisors
of elections was to
increase the types of


facilities that could
be used for voting.
Lawmakers expanded
the list of early voting
sites to include
government-owned
community centers,
convention centers, civic
centers, courthouses,
county commission
buildings, stadiums and
fairgrounds.
But with the 2014
elections looming, it
seems efforts are again
underway to limit
early voting. The Florida
Division of Elections re-
cently issued an opinion
denying a request to use
the University of Florida's
student union, the Reitz
Union, as an early voting
location. As a Gator
alumna, I'm particularly
peeved at the state's
absurdity.
The University of
Florida has a student
population of 50,000 and
a faculty of over 4,000.
Having a voting location
on campus makes so
much sense that the
Reitz Union is actually
one of Alachua County's
63 Election Day polling
locations.
That's right, it's OK to


vote there on Election
Day but not for early
voting.
The Division of
Elections does not seem
embarrassed by this
illogical distinction. The
agency should reverse its
advisory opinion imme-
diately, before furthering
the perception that its
goal is to limit the voting
rights of these students.
The Division of
Elections falls under
Secretary of State Ken
Detzner, appointed by
Gov. Scott. The division
maintains that state
statutes do not specifi-
cally allow educational
facilities to be used as
early-voting locations.
Instead of mincing
words and erring on the
side of restricting voting,
the division should apply
common sense to the
students' request to have
their government-owned
student union facility
serve as an early voting
location. Any reason-
able-minded person
would have no trouble
interpreting the statute
to include the Reitz
Union.
Since this seems to be


a cause of consternation,
Florida elections officials
should recommend
amending the statute to
include student unions
or higher education
facilities in the list of
allowable early voting
locations to benefit all of
Florida's college students
and staff. Election
officials should apply
some common sense and
fairness to expanding
rather than contracting
voter rights.
Now is the time: The
legislative session is
about to begin.
But it might be too
late. In seeking to
discourage voting among
independent-thinking
college students, the
division might have
awakened a sleeping
giant. Notoriously
indifferent young voters
might just have gotten
the inspiration they need
to cast their ballots.

By LYNN ELBER
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
LOS ANGELES Sid
Caesar, the TV comedy
pioneer whose rubber-faced
expressions and mimicry
built on the work of his
dazzling team of writers that
included Woody Allen and
Mel Brooks, died Wednesday.
He was 91.
Family spokesman Eddy
Friedfeld said Caesar, who
also played Coach Calhoun
in the 1978 movie "Grease,"


died at his home in the Los
Angeles area after a brief
illness.
"He had not been well for a
while. He was getting weak,"
said Friedfeld, who lives in
New York and last spoke to
Caesar about 10 days ago.
Friedfeld, who with Caesar
wrote the 2003 biography
"Caesar's Hours: My Life
in Comedy, With Love and
Laughter," learned of his
friend's death in an early
morning call from Caesar's
daughter, Karen.


In his two most important
series, "Your Show of Shows,"
1950-54, and "Caesar's Hour,"
1954-57, Caesar
displayed
remarkable skill
in pantomime,
satire, mimicry,
dialect and
sketch comedy.
And he gathered
CAESAR a stable of
young writers
who went on to worldwide
fame in their own right
- including Carl Reiner,


Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart
("M*A*S*H"), and Allen.
"He was one of the truly
great comedians of my time
and one of the finest privi-
leges I've had in my entire
career was that I was able to
work for him," Allen said in a
statement.
Reiner, who was a
writer-performer on the
breakthrough "Your Show of

Ancient baby DNA yields American clues


By MALCOLM RITTER
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRrrITER
NEWYORK -The DNA of a baby
boy who was buried in Montana
12,600 years ago has been recov-
ered, and it provides new indica-
tions of the ancient roots of today's
American Indians and other native
peoples of the Americas.
It's the oldest genome ever
recovered from the New World.
Artifacts found with the body show
the boy was part of the Clovis
culture, which existed in North
America from about 13,000 years
ago to about 12,600 years ago and
is named for an archaeological site
near Clovis, N.M.


The boy's genome showed his
people were direct ancestors of
many of today's native peoples in
the Americas, researchers said. He
was more closely related to those
in Central and South America than
to those in Canada. The reason for
that difference isn't clear, scientists
said.
The researchers said they had
no Native American DNA from the
United States available for com-
parison, but that they assume the
results would be same, with some
Native Americans being direct
descendants and others also closely
related.

Fla. attorney who led gambling ring gets 6 years


By MIKE SCHNEIDER
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
SANFORD, Fla. -An
attorney convicted of
leading a $300 million

a veterans charity as
a front was sentenced
Wednesday to six years
in prison.
Kelly Mathis of

Senate clears debt limit measure


WASHINGTON (AP)
- Legislation to raise
the federal debt limit
and prevent a crippling
government default
cleared Congress on
Wednesday with an
awkward assist from top
Senate Republican lead-
ers who were forced into
a politically treacherous
vote engineered by tea
party favorite Ted Cruz.
The Texas Republican's
maneuver forced several
GOP colleagues, includ-
ing Minority Leader
Mitch McConnell of
Kentucky, into a reluctant
vote against a filibuster,
helping the measure
along. It's a vote likely to
cause grief for McConnell,
who is facing a primary
election challenges.
On a day of legislative
drama, the key vote
clearing the way for final
action was held open
for more than an hour
- as the stock market
looked on nervously -
and broke open only
after McConnell and top
lieutenant John Cornyn,
R-Texas, unexpectedly
voted "aye." Several
other Republicans then

switched their votes to
support the measure,
ultimately breaking the
filibuster by a 67-31
margin.
The bill then passed the
Senate by a near party-
line 55-43 vote, with all
of the yes votes coming
from President Barack
Obama's allies.
The president is now
clear to sign the bill,
which allows the gov-
ernment to borrow all
the money it needs to
pay bills such as Social

Security benefits, federal
salaries, and payments to
Medicare and Medicaid
providers. Failure to pass
it would have likely sent
the stock market which
dipped modestly as the
voting dragged on into
a tailspin.
After the tally, Cruz said
he had no regrets about
his political maneuvers
in opposition to the bill,
saying the "Senate has
given President Obama a
blank check."
As for forcing a difficult


vote upon McConnell,
Cruz said: "That is ulti-
mately a decision... for
the voters of Kentucky."
McConnell faces a pri-
mary election challenge
from tea party candidate
Matt Bevin and has been
under sharp criticism
from outside groups who
say he isn't conservative
enough.
Sen. Bob Corker,
R-Tenn., was among
those who appeared
frustrated by the political
theatrics.
'A lot of people stepped
up and did what they
needed to do," Corker
said of those who acted to
let the must-pass legisla-
tion win final approval.
Congress has never failed
to act to prevent a default
on U.S. obligations,
which most experts say
would spook financial
markets and cause a spike
in interest rates.
Cruz countered: "In my
view, every Republican
should stand together
against raising the debt
ceiling without meaning-
ful structural reforms to
rein in our out-of-control
spending."

5:44 a.m. by motion

in Bowling Green, just
miles from the General
Motors Co. plant that
builds new Corvettes.
Six of the cars had
been donated to the
museum by enthusi-
asts, while two were on
long-term loan from
GM.
"It's just kind of a
sad day in the Corvette
mecca of the world,"
said Wendell Strode,
executive director of
the museum, which
is home to roughly 80
Corvettes in total and
attracts about 150,000
visitors a year.
The sinkhole mea-
sured about 40 feet
across and 25 to 30 feet
deep, the museum said
in a statement, citing
local fire department
personnel on the scene.
The museum is closed
for the day as engineers
assess the safety and
stability of the ground
and other structures on
the property.
The eight Corvettes
were among 25 to 30
cars on display in the
Skydome, a cone-
shaped building on
the museum's property
that measures 140 feet
in diameter and fea-
tures a 100-foot-high
glass ceiling. The
remaining cars in the
Skydome have all been
removed, Strode said.
The museum is home
to about 80 cars total.

WASHINGTON (AP) -
Congress voted Wednesday
to restore full cost-of-living
pension increases for
younger military retirees,
completing a bipartisan
capitulation to veterans
groups that rose up against
a modest cut when it was
enacted less than two
months ago.
The Senate voted 95-3
for the measure, one day
after the House approved
it, 326-90. TheWhite House
said President Barack
Obama would sign it.
The overwhelming
support the bill enjoyed,
including backing by many
prominent deficit hawks,
reflected the clout that
veterans groups enjoy,
particularly in an election
year. Sen. Roger Wicker,
R-Miss., who opposed the
cut when it was first passed,
said the legislation restores
the benefits "and protects
the budget savings achieved
by the latest budget deal."


WASHINGTON (AP) -
Most states are still lagging
when it comes to sign-ups
under President Barack
Obama's health care law,
but an Associated Press
analysis of numbers
reported Wednesday finds
a dozen high-achievers
getting ahead of the game.
Huge disparities are
emerging in how well
states are living up to
federal enrollment targets,
and that will help deter-
mine if the White House
reaches its unofficial goal
of having 7 million signed
up by the end of March,
six weeks away.
Connecticut is the
nation's top performer,
signing up more than
twice the number of
residents it had been pro-
jected to enroll by the end
of January. Massachusetts,
which pioneered the
approach Obama took in
his law, is at the bottom
of the list having met only
5 percent of its target.
Six Republican-led
states Florida, Idaho,
Maine, Michigan, North
Carolina, and Wisconsin
- are on pace or better.
Residents are signing up
despite strong political
opposition to the health
care law in some of those
states.
The administration said
Wednesday about 1 mil-
lion people signed up for
private insurance under
the health law in January,
extending a turnaround
from early days when a
dysfunctional website
frustrated consumers.

US stocks decline for the




first time in five days


NEWYORK (AP) -Weak
earnings from tobacco com-
pany Lorillard and household
products maker Procter &
Gamble helped end the stock
market's longest winning
streak of the year Wednesday.
Lorillard dropped after the
maker of Newport cigarettes
said its profit fell as higher
costs offset an increase in
revenue from both traditional
and electronic cigarettes.
Procter & Gamble fell after
the company lowered its sales
and earnings forecasts.
The losses were relatively
small. Before Wednesday's
drop, stocks had gained for
the previous four days, mit-
igating some of the market's
weakness in January caused
by signs of slowing growth in
China and doubts about how
strong the U.S. economy
was.
'At this point, boring is
good," said Kate Warne,


an investment strategist at
Edward Jones, an investment
adviser. "People are a bit tired
of the ups and downs we've
seen and a relatively flat day
would be a sign of confi-
dence," Warne said.
The Standard & Poor's
500 index fell half a point,
less than 0.1 percent, to
close at 1,819.26. The Dow
Jones industrial average fell
30.83 points, or 0.2 percent,
to 15,963.94. The Nasdaq
composite rose 10.24 points,
or 0.2 percent, to 4,201.29.
Makers of consumer sta-
ples, a category that includes
everyday products like soap,
diapers and cigarettes, fell the
most of the 10 sectors in the
S&P 500.
Lorillard had the biggest
drop in the index. The stock
lost $2.48, or 5 percent, to
$47.47 after its earnings
disappointed investors.
Procter & Gamble, the


world's largest household
products maker, fell $1.35,
or 1.7 percent, to $77.49
after the company said it
would take a hit because of
declines in emerging market
currencies against the dollar.
Currencies in developing
countries such as Turkey,
South Africa and Argentina
have slumped against the
dollar this year.
Concerns about the
outlook for emerging markets
shook the stock market in
January. Those losses con-
tinued as investors started to
worry about the U.S. econ-
omy after some lackluster
economics reports.
Stocks have rebounded in
the past week. They jumped
on Tuesday after Janet Yellen,
the new head of the Federal
Reserve, said she would
continue the central bank's
market-friendly, low-interest
rate policies.


Target breach started with email



phishing attack, report says


(Star Tribune) Thieves
stole the network creden-
tials from Target's heating
and refrigeration contractor
via an email phishing attack
sent to the contractor's em-
ployees at least two months
before they began hoovering
up card data from cash
registers, according to the
blogger who first revealed
the attack.
Data security
reporter Brian Krebs
wrote Wednesday at
KrebsOnSecurity.com that
Target's breach was set
up by a "malware-laced
email phishing attack" on
employees of Sharpsburg,
Pa.-based Fazio Mechanical
Services Inc. Krebs cited


"multiple sources close to
the investigation."
"Two of those sources said
the malware in question was
Citadel a password-steal-
ing bot program that is
a derivative of the ZeuS
banking trojan but that
information could not be
confirmed," Krebs said.
Fazio was using a free
version of Malwarebytes
Anti-Malware as its main
tool for detecting malicious
software on its internal
system, Krebs said, adding
that he considered that a
flawed approach.
Krebs said that a former
member of Target's security
team, who was not identi-
fied, told him that Target's


vendors use Ariba software
to complete their work or-
ders and collect payments.
That person speculated
that Ariba's back end,
which allows Target admin-
istrators to provide vendors
with login credentials,
would potentially give a
vendor access to the server,
and then potentially some
form of access to the rest of
Target's corporate network.
Target's breach, in which
payment card data or
personal information of up
to 110 million customers
was stolen, is one of the
country's largest recorded
data security breaches
and remains under
investigation.


A better night's sleep


How do you get a good
night's rest? Consumer
Reports recently posed
that question to 8,900 people
who reported having few sleep
difficulties (or none) in the
previous 30 days. Here's what it
found: Good sleepers are more
likely to exercise during the day,
go to bed and wake up at a set
time, unwind for 30 minutes be-
fore going to sleep and engage
in sexual activity before bed.
To help you create a sleep
environment that is truly
conducive to good rest, here are
some tips from sleep specialists,
Consumer Reports readers and
the experts in its labs.
Get the right mattress. If
you've slept on the same mat-
tress for more than eight years
and wake up stiff and sore, you
should think about getting a
new one. Worn-out mattresses
don't supply the same comfort
and support as newer ones. And
as we grow older, our bodies be-
come more sensitive to pressure
points, so a cushiony mattress
might provide a better night's
sleep than a rock-hard bed.
Where should you go to buy
one? In Consumer Reports'
recent survey of 12,000 mattress
shoppers, respondents ranked
The Original Mattress Factory's
mattresses first. They also
gave high scores for quality to
Costco, Ikea, Denver Mattress
Co., Tempur-Pedic, Select
Comfort and Sleep Train.
Dim the lights. Watching
TV before climbing under the
covers might seem like a great
way to relax, but it can cue your
brain to feel alert, rather than
drowsy. If you use an e-reader
in bed, consider features and
apps that display white text on
a black background, which is
less stimulating than the usual
brightly lit white background. To
dim the glare of streetlights or
early morning sun, use blackout
curtains or wear eyeshades.
Neutralize noises. White
noise can improve sleep quality
by reducing the time it takes to
fall asleep and the number of
times you're awakened while
sleeping. Of the readers in


Consumer

Reports


Consumer Reports' 2012 survey
who tried sound machines,
43 percent said that they helped
them sleep better. The machines
- which can make you feel
like you're in a forest or at the
beach worked almost as well
as insomnia drugs for putting
respondents to sleep.
In Consumer Reports' tests
several years ago, all three of
the units it looked at, made
by Brookstone, Homedics and
Marpac, blocked out at least
some unwanted sounds. You
can also try turning on a fan or
simply using earplugs.
Adopt a routine. Keep a
consistent schedule of wake-
up time and bedtime, and
don't vary them by more than
an hour each day. Adjust the
temperature in your bedroom to
between 68 to 70 degrees, which
is the ideal range for sleeping.
Avoid exercising, eating a big
meal or drinking alcohol or caf-
feine within three to four hours
of going to bed. And put your
dog or cat in a separate sleeping
spot and snuggle up with your
significant other instead. You'll
sleep better.


Sleeping pills

If lifestyle measures aren't
enough, you might try an
over-the-counter sleep aid that
contains the antihistamine
diphenhydramine (Nytol, Simply
Sleep, some Unisom products
and generics) or doxylamine
(Unisom SleepTabs and generic).
Those are generally better than
combination products such as
Advil PM and Tylenol PM. If an
OTC remedy doesn't help, talk
with your doctor about zolp-
idem, the generic version of the
drug Ambien. But avoid taking
any sleeping pills for more than
seven consecutive days. If prob-
lems persist, see your doctor
to determine whether you have
an underlying condition that's
causing your sleeplessness.

Philippines
recovers $29M of
Marcos' money
MANILA, Philippines
(dpa) More than
$29 million from the
Swiss bank accounts of
late dictator Ferdinand
Marcos have been turned
over to the Philippine
treasury after decades of
litigation, a government
agency said Wednesday.
The money, which
forms part of $717 million
found hidden in Swiss
bank accounts, was
transferred to the Bureau
of Treasury last week,
according to Andres
Bautista, chairman of the
Presidential Commission
on Good Government.
"The recovered amount
forms part of the Swiss
bank accounts of former
president Ferdinand
Marcos and his family
that were ordered for-
feited by the Philippine
Supreme Court in 2003,
but which were held up
in litigation in Singapore
since then," he said.
Czech ex-premier
charged in graft
case that toppled
PRAGUE (Bloomberg)
- Former Czech Prime
Minister Petr Necas
has been charged with
bribery in connection
with a political scandal
that brought down his
government last year and
led to early elections, his
lawyer said.
Necas is the highest
ranking government
official ever to be charged
in the Czech Republic.
The case relates to an
agreement under which
three former lawmakers
for the Civic Democrats,
then headed by Necas,
were offered jobs in state
companies in exchange
for giving up their man-
dates and allowing the
approval of tax increases
they opposed, according
to attorney Josef Lzicar.
Strong quake
shakes China
BEIJING (AP) -A pow-
erful earthquake struck a
sparsely populated area
of China's far western
region of Xinjiang on
Wednesday, damaging
some houses, though no
casualties were reported.
The U.S. Geological
Survey said the mag-
nitude-6.9 quake was
centered 268 kilometers
(167 miles) east-southeast
of Hotan at a depth of
6.2 miles. The China
Earthquake Networks
Center measured the
quake at magnitude
7.3 and said at least
20 smaller aftershocks
ensued over the following
two hours.

Belgium set to
extend right-to-die
law to children
BRUSSELS (AP) -
Belgium, one of the very
few countries where
euthanasia is legal, is
expected to take the
unprecedented step this
week of abolishing age
restrictions on who can
ask to be put to death
- extending the right to
children for the first time.
The legislation appears
to have wide support in
the largely liberal country.
But it has also aroused
intense opposition from
foes including a list
of pediatricians and
everyday people who


II You Sped Here It Stays Here
S www.pung* awruber.oom


have staged noisy street
protests, fearing that
vulnerable children will
be talked into making a
final, irreversible choice.
Backers like Dr. Gerland
van Berlaer, a prominent
Brussels pediatrician,
believe it is the merciful
thing to do. The law will
be specific enough that
it will only apply to the
handful of teenage boys
and girls who are in
advanced stages of cancer
or other terminal illnesses
and suffering unbearable
pain, he said.
Under current law, they
must let nature take its
course or wait until
they turn 18 and can ask
to be euthanized.
India consumer
inflation, factory
output fall
NEW DELHI
(Bloomberg) India's
consumer-price growth
eased more than analysts
estimated in January
and factory output fell in
December following an
increase in interest rates
as central bank Governor
Raghuram Rajan fights
Asia's fastest inflation.
The consumer-price
index rose 8.79 percent
from a year earlier, com-
pared with 9.87 percent in
December, the Statistics
Ministry said in New
Delhi Wednesday. The
median estimate in a
Bloomberg News survey
of 37 analysts was
9.2 percent.
Egypt military
chief heads
to Moscow
CAIRO (AP) Egypt's
army chief headed to
Russia on his first trip
abroad since his ouster
of the Islamist president,
amid reports of a Gulf-
funded $2 billion arms
deal in the making with
Moscow that would sig-
nificantly expand Russia's
military influence with a
key U.S. ally in the Middle
East.
The trip by Field
Marshal Abdel-Fattah
el-Sissi also boosts an im-
age of international clout
for the military com-
mander, who is widely
expected to announce his
candidacy to run for pres-
ident in elections next
year. The military issued
a photo of el-Sissi on his
way to board the plane
for Moscow in civilian
clothes a blue blazer
and tie a rare picture of
him out of uniform.

Syrian planes pound rebel town

Man learns diving to search for wife


SENDAI, Japan
(Yomiuri Shimbun)
- Though it has been
almost three years
since the Great East
Japan Earthquake,
Yasuo Takamatsu's love
for his missing wife is
unchanged, prompt-
ing him to acquire a
national diving license
to find her remains by
himself.
Takamatsu, 57, a
company employee
in Onagawa, plans to
dive in the ocean with
volunteers this summer
to look for his wife, Yuko,
who is believed to have
been swept away by the
tsunami in March 2011.
On Tuesday, a day that
marked two years and
11 months since the
disaster, Takamatsu was
practicing diving in the
waters off Ishinomaki in
the prefecture with an
instructor to improve his
skills.
The seawater tem-
perature was 5 C (41 F).
Takamatsu, wearing
about 25 kilograms
(55 pounds) of diving
equipment, had a hard
time controlling his

buoyancy and struggled
in the water.
"I still have a long
way to go," Takamatsu
said with a wry grin. His
instructor, Masayoshi
Takahashi, 34, encour-
aged him, saying, "You'll
get used to it."
It was October when
Takamatsu visited
Takahashi, who was
engaged in volunteer
activities including
removing debris from
the seabed. Takahashi
agreed to teach him how
to dive as he was moved


by Takamatsu's zeal
for bringing his wife's
remains home with his
own hands.
Takamatsu was at
a local hospital when
the quake occurred in
2011, accompanying his
mother.
He went home and
waited for his wife to
come back. But she
never did.
An email from her
shortly after the quake
said: "Are you OK? I want
to go home."
The next day he visited


the Onagawa branch
office of the 77 Bank
where his wife worked.
There, he learned that
some bank employees
were swept away by the
tsunami.
"I should have gone to
the bank to pick her up,"
he said.
Such feelings of guilt
prompted him to obtain

Jurors deliberate in loud music killing trial


JACKSONVILLE (AP)
-A 47-year-old Florida
man reacted viciously to
an argument over loud
music with teenagers
in a store parking lot
and fired multiple shots
into their vehicle, killing
one of them, and then
drove away as if nothing
happened, a prosecutor
said Wednesday during
closing arguments at the
man's trial.
Defense attorneys
argued, however, that
the state failed to prove
its case or show that
Michael Dunn hadn't
acted in self-defense.
Jurors began deliberat-
ing in the late afternoon
on whether Dunn
committed first-degree
murder when he fa-
tally shot 17-year-old
Jordan Davis outside a
Jacksonville convenience


store in 2012. Dunn, who
is pleading not guilty,
faces life in prison if
convicted of that charge.
They deliberated for
three hours Wednesday
night before recessing
for the night. Before they
left, they asked to see a
convenience store secu-
rity video that captured
sounds of the gunshots.
They said they wanted
to watch the video on
Thursday.
Besides first-degree
murder, jurors could
also consider the lesser
crimes of second-degree
murder or manslaughter,
according to the jury
instructions. Dunn also is
charged with attempted
murder for shots fired at
Davis' three friends.
In order to conclude
that the killing was
justifiable, jurors must


believe it occurred while
resisting an attempt to
murder or commit a felo-
ny against Dunn, Circuit
Judge Russell Healey told
jurors.
Assistant State
Attorney
Erin Wolfson
told jurors
that the
evidence
S clearly
shows
S Davis was
unarmed
when Dunn
fired 10 shots at a Dodge
Durango where Davis
was sitting. Wolfson said
no witnesses saw any of
the four teenagers in the
vehicle with a weapon
and police searches
turned up none.
"This defendant
was disrespected by a
17-year-old teenager,


and he lost it. He wasn't
happy with Jordan Davis'
attitude. What was his re-
sponse? 'You're not going
to talk to me like that,'"
Wolfson said. "He took
these actions because it
was premeditated. It was
not self-defense."
Dunn's attorney Cory
Strolla told jurors that
the state had failed to
prove its case or disprove
Dunn's assertion he
acted in self-defense.
"Not one single witness
said this man (Dunn)
showed any signs of
anger," he said.
Strolla argued that
there were no signs
Dunn was planning to do
anything that night and
only asked the teens in
the car to turn down the
music. Strolla said they
initially did, only to turn
it back up again.


Strolla said Dunn
only fired his gun when
he saw Davis wielding
a weapon from inside
the Durango and felt
threatened.
"He's had that gun for
20 years and never pulled
it once," Strolla said. "He
told you that nobody has
ever scared him, no one
has ever threatened him
like that."
Police didn't find a
weapon in the SUV, but
Strolla contended that
the teens got rid of it
during the three minutes
they were in an adjacent
parking lot after fleeing
the gunshots. He said
detectives should have
immediately gone to the
area and searched, but
didn't.
In his testimony
Tuesday, Dunn told
jurors he was in


Jacksonville with his fian-
cee, Rhonda Rouer, to
attend his son's wedding.
Dunn said he and Rouer
went to the convenience
store for wine and chips.
He said he pulled in next
to an SUV playing loud
music.
"My rear view mirror
was shaking. My ear-
drums were vibrating. It
was ridiculously loud,"
Dunn said.
Dunn said he asked the
teens to turn down the
music and they turned it
off. "I said, 'Thank you,'"
Dunn said. But soon
afterward, Dunn said he
heard someone in the
SUV shouting expletives
and the word "cracker"
at him. Dunn is white,
and the teens in the SUV
were black. Cracker is
a derogatory term for
white people.


I HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATE


Man executed in
boy's rape, murder

STARKE (AP)- A man
was executed Wednesday
night in Florida for raping
and killing a 9-year-old
boy 18 years ago, a death
that spurred the victim's
parents to press nation-
wide for stronger sexual
predator confinement
laws and better handling
of child abduction cases.
Juan Carlos Chavez, 46,
was pronounced dead
at 8:17 p.m. Wednesday
after a lethal injection
at Florida State Prison,
according to Gov. Rick
Scott's office.
Chavez made no final
statement in the death
chamber, though prison
officials said he had
submitted something
in writing. He moved
his feet frequently after
the injection began at


8:02 p.m. but two minutes
later stopped moving.
Chavez abducted Jimmy
Ryce at gunpoint after
the boy got off a school
bus on Sept. 11, 1995, in
rural Miami-Dade County.
Testimony showed Chavez
raped the boy, shot him
when he tried to escape,
then dismembered his
body and hid the parts in
concrete- covered planters.
Ryce's parents turned
the tragedy's pain into
a push for stronger U.S.
laws regarding confine-
ment of sexual predators
and improved police
procedures in missing
child cases.
Touted mortgage
company laying
off 745
BOCARATON(AP)- A
mortgage company that
has received $2 million in
state incentives to create


jobs has announced that
it will lay off 745 workers
in April.
The Palm Beach Post
reports Wednesday that
Digital Risk of Maitland
has told state officials
that "substantial,
abrupt and unforeseen"
changes in the mortgage
market have hurt its
business.
The layoffs affect 30
people in Boca Raton,
251 in Maitland, 148 in
Jacksonville, 315 in Lake
Mary and one out of state
in Denver.
Gov. Rick Scott had
touted the company last
year as a job-creating
machine.
Under the company's
contract with the state, it
must have 2,075 employ-
ees by the end of 2016,
up from 1,075 in 2012.
The layoffs would drop
its current total to about
1,020.


Limits proposed Coaster strands State adds 1,500
for sea cucumber riders at Busch solar jobs in '13
harvests Gardens in Tamna


KEYWEST (AP) -
State wildlife officials
are considering tighter
restrictions for harvests of
sea cucumbers.
The marine inverte-
brates are common in
the waters off the Florida
Keys. They're a delicacy in
Asia, and as that market
grows, officials say tighter
harvest limits may be
needed.
Currently there is
no limit on sea cu-
cumber harvests for
commercial fishermen.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission will vote
Wednesday on a pro-
posal to limit the daily
commercial harvest of
sea cucumbers to 200 per
vessel per day.


TAMPA (AP) Sixteen
people have been safely
evacuated from the
Cheetah Hunt roller
coaster at Busch Gardens
in Tampa, Fla., after the
ride stopped functioning.
The park posted the
update on its official
Twitter account shortly
after 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Park spokesman Travis
Claytor had said the
coaster got stuck just
after 2:30 p.m. on the
ride's first embankment,
before it got to the main
launch track and first
major hill. Maintenance
workers initially tried to
nudge the coaster back
into the station. When
that didn't work, park
officials called Tampa
Fire Rescue.


(Tampa Bay Times) -
The number of solar jobs
in Florida grew 60 percent
in 2013, raising the state's
nationwide rank from 12th
to seventh, according to a
study released Tuesday.
Florida now employs
4,000 solar workers, an
addition of 1,500 in a
year, though the state has
struggled to keep pace with
other states in the number
of solar installations.
Florida ranks 18th in solar
installations, down from
12th.
California employs the
most solar workers by far
with more than 10 times
that of Florida, 47,000,
according to the Solar
Foundation study. California
is followed by Arizona, New
Jersey, Massachusetts, New
York and Texas.

Kirkland

proves


a quick


study

By ZACH MILLER
SPORTS WRITER
NORTH PORT North
Port High School will
have eight wrestlers
competing at the Class
3A state tournament this
weekend, but only senior
Marcus Kirkland comes in
as a regional champion.
Thanks to his regional
title, Kirkland will be one
of the top four seeds in
the 195-pound weight
class, giving him per-
haps the best chance at
becoming the first state
wrestling champion in
school history.
Unlike many of his
teammates, Kirkland's
wrestling career didn't start
in elementary or middle
school. Instead, it started
two years ago at the
insistence of some of his
teachers, including Mike
Endee and Mark Kemble.
"He looked like an ath-
lete, he was a good kid,
then I pulled his GPA and
saw that he had a 3.9, so I
had a feeling he probably
had some smarts too and
could learn (wrestling),"
said Kemble, who is
North Port's wrestling
coach and was Kirkland's
world history teacher.
Kirkland, a sophomore

A handful of Port
Charlotte High School
players sat in the stands
on Tuesday night, watch-
ing the girls team take
on Barron Collier in the
regional playoffs.
Tonight, the Pirate boys
will take the stage for
their first home game in
the regional playoffs since
2006.
But the message from
Port Charlotte coach
Bill Specht has been the
same.
"Prepare, prepare, pre-
pare," Pirates point guard
Kyle Collins said of the
tone in workouts. "He's
been pushing us real hard
in practice, trying to get
us ready."
Specht pointed out
more is expected from
Port Charlotte this week.
"We've got to play
harder than we ever have
before," Specht said.
"(We've) got to step up
our game."
The District 6A-11
champion Pirates (20-7)
host Lehigh (20-6) in a
Class 6A regional opener.
District 7A- 11 champion
Charlotte (16-10) will play
host to Martin County
(21-5) in the Class 7A

Specht knows the
value of playing at home.

Gold shares skyrocket after historic downhill finish


By HOWARD FENDRICH
ASSOCIATED PRESS
KRASNAYA POLYANA,
Russia Slovenia's Tina Maze
and Switzerland's Dominique
Gisin took different paths on
an Olympic downhill filled
with flats and turns, jumps and
bumps, across slender trees'
shadows, along snow that was
icy at the top, soft at the bottom.
Any variable could have made


the slightest difference over the
more than 11/2 miles. Gisin, the
eighth woman down the Rosa
Khutor course, was good enough
early and fantastic at the end.
A half-hour later, starting 20th,
Maze followed a tighter line,
faster than Gisin most of the
way, until slowed by a mistake
shortly before the final leap.
Add it all up, and they were
each other's equal Wednesday.
Exactly, right down to the


hundredth of a second. Gisin
finished in 1 minute, 41.57
seconds. Maze finished in
1 minute, 41.57 seconds. A
tie. And so two gold medals
were awarded, the first time
that's happened in 78 years of
Olympic Alpine skiing.
"Maybe just one finger, may-
be just a hand it can change
a color of a medal," Maze said.
In a field missing injured
defending champion Lindsey


Vonn, Gisin's Swiss teammate
Lara Gut got the bronze, 0.10
seconds back.
During the flower ceremony,
Maze and Gisin held hands
while they climbed together to
the top step of the podium, a
scene Maze described as "two
happy faces."
Quite a contrast from

Final year of the Jeter dynasty


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK -One by
one, Derek Jeter watched
them walk away.
His baseball brothers in
pinstripes, the gang that
grew up champions.
Bernie Williams was
the first to go. Then, best
buddy Jorge Posada.
Mariano Rivera and Andy
Pettitte said goodbye to-
gether just a few months
ago.
And now, the last link
to the latest run of New
YorkYankees dominance
is ready to retire.
When the captain
revealed Wednesday that
2014 will be his final sea-
son, it signaled the end
of an era not only for the
game's most successful
franchise, but all of Major
League Baseball.
On a minor league field
at the New York Yankees'
complex in Tampa, Jeter
took batting practice,
fielded grounders and
chatted with teammates.
And then he drove away
in his Mercedes, offering
no hint that the count-
down to his retirement
had already begun.
Hours later, Jeter alert-
ed the sports world: This
will be his final season.
"I know it in my heart.
The 2014 season will
be my last year playing
professional baseball,"
Jeter posted Wednesday
in a long letter on his
Facebook page.
"I have gotten the very
most out of my life play-
ing baseball, and I have
absolutely no regrets," the
shortstop wrote.
Jeter and pals from
Jimmy Key to Alex
Rodriguez produced a
generation of sustained
success, nearly two
decades worth of winning
by one special group of
players. We may never see
the likes of it again in
any sport.
"It has been an incred-
ible honor having a front
row seat for one of the
great players of all time,"
Yankees general manager
Brian Cashman said in
a statement. "Derek has


Derek Jeter takes batting practice on Wednesday at the Yankees' mi


been a winner every step
of the way."
Jeter has led the
Yankees to five World
Series titles and seven
American League pen-
nants in 19 seasons. They
won four championships
in five years from 1996-
2000, the last three in a
row to become baseball's
most recent dynasty.
Those are surely his
favorite numbers and
surely his favorite memo-
ries, with Bernie and Mo
and Andy and "Sado."
They were just kids
then, really. Just kids be-
ginning to build a legacy
that included 17 playoff
appearances in 18 years.
"Now it is time for
the next chapter," Jeter
wrote in announcing his
decision with a long letter
on his Facebook page.
Joe Girardi was the
catcher on that 1996
team, the one that ended
an 18-year title drought
in the Bronx. Now, he
manages the Yankees.
And still, the 39-year-old
Jeter is prepping to play
whortstop after injuries


wrecked his 2013 season.
"He is unquestionably
one of the greatest
Yankees ever," said
Hal Steinbrenner, the
club's managing general
partner. "He has meant so
much to fans, the orga-
nization, my father and
our family. I'm glad we
have this year to celebrate
everything he has meant
to us and all the great
things he still stands to
accomplish."
Of course, Jeter has
racked up more than
his share of individual
achievements.
He is the Yankees'
career hits leader with
3,316. He is a lifetime .312
hitter in 19 seasons, with
256 home runs and 1,261
RBIs. He has scored 1,876
runs, stolen 348 bases
and is a five-time Gold
Glove winner.
Added up, his numbers
put him among the greats
in Yankees history, with
fans often invoking the
names of Babe Ruth, Lou
Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio,
Mickey Mantle when
mentioning Jeter's legacy.


DEFINING DEREK
More than sheer numbers, Derek
Jeter's career has been defined by
moments. Here are fourofthe most
memorable:
THE FLIP
The Yankees were facing a three-
game sweep in the 2001 AL playoff
but led 1-0 in Game 3 at Oakland.
With a runner on first and two outs
in the seventh inning, Terrence Lon'
hit a line drive into the corner. Righo
fielder Shane Spencer's throw miss
the cutoff men and wouldn't have
made it home in time to keep Jerer
Giambi from scoring the tying run.
But out of nowhere, Jeter swooped
in, scooped up the errant throw
r i along the first-base line and made

Posada, who tagged out Giambi.

FORT MYERS -After
having seven players
drafted last year, Florida
Gulf Coast's baseball team
is reloading.
There were more Eagles
drafted than players from
any other Florida college,
including four in the
first 11 rounds. Six of the
players lost were major
players on last year's team
- including three of the
top four pitchers that
finished second in the
Atlantic Sun Conferennce.
"It was pretty good in
June, but right now on
Feb. 12 it don't feel too
good," FGCU coach Dave
Tollett said. "I think it says
that we develop kids the
right way and get them
ready for the next level,
but I'd like to have all six
of them back."
Tollett is a Charlotte
High School alum and
coached the Tarpons
for 10 seasons before
becoming the first, and so
far only FGCU baseball
coach. His biggest chal-
lenge this year is dealing
with inexperience; he
said his starters at second
base, third base, center
field and left field have
never played a Division I

The Eagles season
opens with a four-game
home series this weekend
against Rhode Island,
starting Friday at 6:30
p.m.
"I hope (there's not a
learning curve), but it's
possible. We don't want
to rebuild, we want to re-
load," Tollett said. "I think
it'll take us some games to
figure out some things.
"We've got some things
we need to see opening
weekend, we've got a
good test. Rhode Island


comes in ranked No. 52
in the country and we're
ranked No. 56, so it'll be a
pretty good test right off
the bat."
Sophomore Michael
Murray, the only returning
starting pitcher from last
year's team, will take the
hill on Friday. Tollett feels
that his pitching staff is
the key to success this
season, starting with
Murray at the front of
the rotation, and ending
with DeSoto County
High School alum Brady
Anderson as the closer.
Murray said it's im-
portant for the team to
get off to a good start this
weekend, though not
necessarily in the win
colunm.
"Our main thing is
not to really focus on
the outcome," he said.
"(We'll focus) more on the
process, if you don't have
a good night, just come
back to the ballpark the
next day and do well."
The Eagles were picked
to finish third in the
Atlantic Sun preseason
coaches poll, but Tollett
and his players said
they expect to win the
conference.

* COLLEGE BASKETBALL:



Joust continues for lead in balanced league


By RUSTY MILLER
ASSOCIATED PRESS
COLUMBUS, Ohio-
Now the ball's in your
court, Sparty.
No. 15 Michigan did
its part by upending No.
22 Ohio State 70-60 on
Tuesday night, giving the
Wolverines a half-game
edge in the Big Ten
race. Now ninth-ranked
Michigan State gets a
chance to pull even again
when it plays host to
Northwestern tonight.
The date to circle on
the calendar is Feb. 23,
when Michigan and
Michigan State meet in
Ann Arbor with the con-
ference trophy possibly
riding on the outcome.
But there's a lot of work
to do before and after
that showdown.


"As John and I were
talking before the game,
every night is a war," said
Buckeyes coach Thad
Matta of his discussion
with Michigan's John
Beilein.
While there is no single,
dominant team hailed
as a national contender,
the Big Ten's depth
might be as good as ever.
Everybody's taking their
lumps in a season in
which even the bottom
teams have pulled off
upsets, road wins have
come more frequently
than ever and it seems
there's another major
surprise every night of
the week.
"It is great to be at the
top of this conference,
but we still have six
games to go with
some really tough games


coming up," Beilein said.
The Wolverines (18-
6, 10-2) host No. 21
Wisconsin on Saturday,
then have a full week off
before welcoming OK,
not exactly "welcoming"
- the Spartans onto
their home court. After
that they go to Purdue
and Illinois and host
Minnesota and Indiana.
Michigan is without
big man Mitch McGary,
out indefinitely after back
surgery on Jan. 7.
Everybody has a tale of
woe, it seems.
Already hampered
by injuries Branden
Dawson is out with a
broken hand, Keith
Appling is nursing a
wrist injury and Adreian
Payne continues to battle
a sprained right foot -
Michigan State (20-4, 9-2)


is entering its busiest part
of the season.
Starting with the game
against Northwestern, the
Spartans play four games
in 11 days, including that
big game in Ann Arbor.
They close with games
against Illinois and No. 16
Iowa at home before cap-
ping the regular season at
Ohio State.
Iowa (18-6, 7-4) is alone
in third place, two games
back in the loss column.
The Hawkeyes play four
of their final seven games
on the road, starting with
Saturday's game at Penn
State.
Also on tap are trips to
Indiana, Minnesota and
Michigan State, along
with home games against
Wisconsin, Purdue and
Illinois.
In a season of surprises


in the Big Ten, perhaps
the biggest is Michigan.
With national player of
the year Trey Burke and
his running mate Tim
Hardaway Jr. leaving early
for the NBA off a team
that went to the national
championship game last
April, the Wolverines took
a big hit heading into this
season.
Then McGary was
sidelined after playing
just eight games. Almost
no one thought the
Wolverines no matter
how talented the rest
of the roster would
contend this season.
Instead, they put
together a 10-game win-
ning streak that included
victories in their first
eight Big Ten games.
Instead of a team built
on one or two superstars,


the Wolverines get
contributions from a lot
of people.
"It's great. I don't know
if we expected this this
year," Beilein said after
the win at Ohio State.
"We're watching these
two kids play in the NBA
right now, and they're
doing really well. And I'm
saying, 'Jeez, we'd better
have made it to the Final
Four last year because
those were really two
good players.' Now when
you have that dropoff, we
didn't know where it was
going to come from."
But Michigan has
found a way.
"We've had some kids
who have been able to
sort of step up," he said.

TODAY'S BEST BETS


MEN'S
HOCKEY
The U.S. opens pool play with a game against
Slovakia. Canada and Russia are the expected
gold-medal finalists, but it wouldn't surprise if
the U.S. was around at the end. The thing about
Olympic hockey is you get to see lines such as
Patrick Kane, Dustin Brown and Phil Kessel.
Jonathan Quick will be in goal. (Story this page.)


WOMEN'S
SPEEDSKATING
The U.S. could win gold if Heather Richardson
can shake off her lackluster performance in the
500 meters and win the 1,000 meters. A gold
could soften the disappointment of Shani Davis'
eighth-place performance in the men's 1,000.
Brittany Bowe could also make the stand for
the U.S.


MEN'S
FIGURE SKATING
Patrick Chan of Canada is the odds-on favorite
to win the men's competition, which starts with
the short program. While the gold is Chan's to
lose, strong contenders include Yuzuru Hanyu
of Japan and Javier Fernandez of Spain. Jeremy
Abbott and Jason Brown will compete for the
U.S.


LUGE TEAM RELAY
This first-time event seems to have a great
made-for-TV flavor. Each team is made up of
a single men's and women's slider and a men's
doubles team. When a sledder hits a suspended
device while crossing the finish line, a gate opens
up the course and the next sledder goes down.

when Maze wore a stern
expression after finishing
fourth, merely a tenth
of a second slower than
bronze medalist Julia
Mancuso of the United
States.
"It's just that lower of
a tuck or that cleaner of
a line that makes you
that much faster," said
American Laurenne
Ross, who finished 1lth
Wednesday.
While other Winter
Games sports such as
speedskating and luge

not it didn't even go
to hundredths until the
1964 Olympics and

Maze was even in a three-
way tie for first in a 2002
World Cup giant slalom.
And get this: The first of
Gisin's three World Cup
victories came via a tie
with Swedish star Anja
Paerson in 2009. That was
the last time first place
was shared in a top-level
women's downhill.
"Hundredths are fine
with me," Gisin said with
a hearty chuckle, "and
today, the hundredths
were on my side."
According to Peter
Huerzeler of Omega, all
three timing systems
used Wednesday had the
same results for Maze
and Gisin. Huerzeler said
the system is capable of
measuring thousandths
of a second even
millionths, he said but
isn't calibrated that way

Federation doesn't want
it to be.
This was the fifth tie
in Olympic skiing, but
the others involved an
extra silver or bronze.
Most recently, two silvers
were awarded for the
men's super-G at the 1998
Nagano Games.
"That's what's the
beauty of skiing," Britain's
Chemmy Alcott said after
finishing 19th. "There's
not one body type that
can win this race. There's
not one line that can
win this race. It's about
fighting for every single
millisecond."
On a sunny day, with
the temperature ap-
proaching 50 degrees (10
Celsius), Maze and Gisin
were evenly matched.
Their career arcs have
been wildly divergent.
Maze, 30, adds this
gold to the two Olympic


silvers she won in 2010,
along with the 2013
overallWorld Cup title
she earned with 11 race
victories and a record
point total. She owns
six world championship
medals, including two
golds. Things were
tougher lately; her first
win this season came in
her 22nd World Cup race,
last month.
"A year of highs and
lows. But her objective
was the Olympics, and
she did it," said Andrea
Vianello, Maze's ski
technician.
He previously worked
with Gisin and declared:
"For me, it's like winning
twice."
Because she was one
of the first skiers, Gisin
sat in the leader's box for
what must have seemed
like forever, waiting as
others got their chance.

I QUICK HITS


STORMS FORCE
SCHEDULE CHANGES

The winter storm and
icy conditions moving
through the South caused
teams to postpone games
scheduled for this week,
including Wednesday
night's showdown be-
tween No. 8 Duke and
North Carolina.
Less than two hours
before the announce-
ment, school officials had
said the game would be
played.
However, North
Carolina athletic director
Bubba Cunningham said
in a statement that Duke's
bus could not get to the
Blue Devils' Durham,
N.C., campus to pickup
the team for the 11-mile
ride to the Tar Heels' arena
in Chapel Hill.
Cunningham said
the move was the "best
decision to make at this
time."
The game was resched-
uled for Feb. 20.
Atlantic Coast
Conference policy states
games can go on as sched-
uled despite bad weather
as long as the teams, game
officials and operations
personnel necessary to
run the contest are on site.
Georgia Tech officials,
like their ACC brethren in
North Carolina, had said
Tuesday that their game
against Boston College
on Wednesday would be
played because the Eagles
and the officials were in
Atlanta.
But as the storm
worsened, the game was
postponed until today with
officials citing safety con-
cerns. The Georgia Tech
women's basketball game
in Atlanta against Virginia
scheduled for Wednesday
night was called off earlier
in the day.
The region's NBA teams
were all out of town and far
from the storm Wednesday
except for the Orlando
Magic, who played the
Memphis Grizzlies. The
temperature in Orlando,
though, was 81 degrees
(Story, Page 3).


FOOTBALL

Incognito lashes out at
Martin on Twitter: Dolphins
offensive lineman Richie Incognito
lashed out at teammate Jonathan
Martin on Twitter Wednesday, saying
"The truth is going to bury you and
your entire'camp'You could have told
the truth the entire time'."
Incognito also wrote Martin told
him he thought about committing
suicide because he wasn't playing well.
"FACT: Jonathan Martin told me he
thought about taking his own life in
MAY 2013 b/c he wasn't playing well.
Told me he felt worthless'," Incognito
said on Twitter.
Incognito's series of tweets directed
at Martin and his representatives come
as the NFL is preparing to release
a report on the Dolphins'bullying
case which could help clarify their
much-publicized relationship.
Martin previously said he was
harassed daily by Incognito and other
teammates. He alleged their racial,
aggressive and sexually charged
comments played a role in his
departure from the team on Oct. 28.


BASEBALL

Source says Burnett,
Phillies agree to deal: On the
day Cole Hamels announced he won't
be ready for the season opener, the
Philadelphia Phillies helped their ailing
starting rotation.
A person familiar with the deal said
that A.J. Burnett agreed to a one-year
contract. The person spoke on condition
of anonymity because the Phillies
haven't made an official announce-
ment. Burnett's deal reportedly is
worth $16 million.
Hamels said he won't be able to
make his opening day start after feeling
discomfort in his pitching arm during
the offseason. Hamels, who pitched the
Phillies'first game last season, said he no
longer is feeling any pain or discomfort,
but is "eight to 10 days"behind the rest
of the pitchers in camp....
All-Star closer Greg Holland agreed
with the Royals to a one-year contract
worth $4,675,000, the final player
to reach a deal among Kansas City's
players in arbitration....
Seattle Mariners pitcher Hisashi
Iwakuma will not throw for four to
six weeks because of an injury to
the middle finger of his right hand.
Iwakuma reported for his physical at
Mariners spring training headquarters
with a splint over the finger. He's been
diagnosed with a strained tendon
and will be re-examined by a hand
specialist in Arizona in three weeks....
Bronson Arroyo arrived in Arizona,
bringing a reputation for leadership
and a remarkable track record of dura-
bility in 14 major league seasons. The
right-hander passed his physical, threw
a bullpen session and spoke at a news
conference after the Diamondbacks
made his signing official, five days after
his two-year, $23.5 million deal had
been widely reported.

Li Na wins 1st match

AHL All-Stars beat
Swedish team: In St. John's,
Newfoundland, Brandon Pirri of the

PIRATES
FROM PAGE 1
6A- 11 tournament by
an average of 32 points.
(And two of those teams
Port Charlotte thrashed
are playing in tonight's
regional playoffs.)
North Port (21-4) and
Lemon Bay (7-18) will go
on the road to open the
playoffs.
The Bobcats travel to
District 7A-9 champion
Seminole (17-3), and
the Manta Rays go on
the road to face Mariner
(19-8).
That's a bad start al-
ready since 2002, area
boys basketball teams are
0-22 in regional playoff
games away from home.
But the Bobcats who
only played nine games
at home this season and
own wins at Sarasota-
Riverview, Port Charlotte
and Palmetto seem
equipped for a road
playoff game. The balance
that comes with a starting
five that includes shooter
Brandon Gonzalez, play-
maker Vic Sinopoli and
big man Malek Barber
also helps.
"To be honest, I think
it's a benefit to us to be
on the road," North Port
coach Travis Slanger
said. "The pressure is on
Seminole to have to per-
form in front of their fans.
Play with house money,
just doing things got us to
this point, hopefully that's
enough."
Specht said his
marching orders would
be pretty basic against
Lehigh tonight, with the
Pirates having their usual
size advantage up front in
Nicksen Blanc (6-6), Sean
Phillip (6-5) and Harrison
Rains (6-3).
"I think if we can pro-
tect the basketball, we're
going to score on them,"
he said. "Defensively,
there's a bunch of things
we have to do to stop
them: Get back on
defense, close our their
shooters, rebound. Pretty
simple message, really."
That will go a long way
to helping the Pirates
realize their potential.

Kirkland said. "If you're
willing to go longer than
anyone else on the mat,
there's not many matches
you won't win."
Kirkland hasn't lost a
match this entire post-
season, going 2-0 to win
a district title two weeks
ago and 4-0 to win what
he called the "region of
doom" last weekend. With
another 4-0 weekend, he
could add a state title to
the list.
"He's starting to peak
right at the right time,"
Kemble said. "I definitely
think with the way he's
working and his attitude,
he's definitely got a shot.
I'd love to see it, he could
be our first."

hear what-

standouts
Taylor
Lindsey or
Courtney
Robertson
might
have to say
after Port


Charlotte's 65-62 loss
to Barron Collier in the
Region 6A-3 semifinal.
(When you're seniors who
meant as much to a pro-
gram as those two, you
get that courtesy.)
It wasn't going to be
an easy locker room,


and Pirates coach Kevin
Purcell acknowledged as
much.
"It's going to be a very
tough locker room to go
into right now. There's
two players in there that
I coached for four years
that really started building
this program," he said,
referring to the star duo.
They combined for 50
points in the loss 27 for
Lindsey, 23 for Robertson.
Robertson took the loss
especially hard and her
face when she came out
showed she had been
crying. I let her go by
and asked Lindsey for a
few words. But Purcell
corralled Lindsey and
get her to come back for
some questions.
"They built this bas-
ketball team from the
ground up they're
amazing," Purcell said.
"Not just as basketball
players, but as people.
Amazing."
Of course, this isn't
to minimize the rest of
the Pirates they had

roster, including starters
Katie Stewart and Nikole
Kantzios.
The argument could be
made the Port Charlotte
girls were the area's best
basketball team over
the past four years. The
Pirates won three district
titles and played in four
district championship
games during their four
seasons. Robertson and
Lindsey both finished
their careers with 1,000
points and only lost on
their home court three


times.
And there were some
great moments -
Robertson's 3-pointer
to beat Sarasota in the
2012 district title game at
the Tony Cicchella Gym
would certainly qualify.
The players were
contrite after the loss
that ended their season
prematurely.
"In the first half, our
intensity was not there,"
Lindsey said.
"It looked liked we
hadn't played basketball
before," Robertson added
with an ironic laugh.
Purcell acknowledged
this group was special;
maybe the end of a
special run for the Pirates.
Three district titles in four
years doesn't happen all
the time.
"I'm never going to see
that again probably," he
said, before going into the
locker room. "We'll cry,
we'll hug, we'll stay up for
four nights and see what
we do next year."

"It was a tough match
for him, he pulled it out
in the end," said Balut,

U A AP "W


I have to tell you,
when I heard the
Charlotte chapter of the
Coastal Conservation
Association was trying
to reorganize, I had
some doubts. On the
one hand, CCA has done
some things that are
good for recreational
anglers around the
state and around the
country. On the other
hand, they didn't seem
to be real interested in
doing something locally,
so maybe effort that
would be spent on their
behalf might be better
put somewhere else.
After all, my top concern
is what's happening in my
neighborhood.
Apparently, I'm not the
only one who felt this
way, and apparently CCA's
regional director, Adam
Miller, realized what
was going on. The letter
reprinted here is a release
I got from Mr. Miller this
week, detailing this exact
problem. From the letter, it
seems that he understands
there's an issue there and is
trying to do something to
resolve it.
I know that Capt. Josh
Greer, who is now president
of CCA Charlotte, has a deep
and abiding interest in
doing what's right for the Harl
we've talked about it on a nun
of occasions. With him now at
helm and with CCA Florida con
ting to giving his the backing I
needs, that's reason enough fo
me personally to lend a measu

Many people have been asking what CCA is doing in our local community. V1hile it' true that there ha en't heen
Charlotte Harbor-specific projects for a few years, we have some projects that %c'll be pearheading in 21114.
We're going to be planting large numbers of juvenile mangroves this fall (-,e "ould do it sooner. but the\ are
most likely to take hold and grow if planted in September). Healthy mangro es are \ ital habitatfor u\enile and
adult fish of many species, including tarpon, snook and redfish, and also pro% ide heher and nourishment for
shrimp, crabs and other important gamefish prey. We've already begun -,orking % ith biologlstk to identity\
locations that would benefit from this project.
We have heard from our local members that commercial fishing pressure during mullet roe season ser. hea\y
in this area, and there are concerns that some of the netters are using illegal nethod.. to inaimze thir catch.
While CCA cannot enforce any laws ourselves, we can foster communication amrong \atious la%\-enforcemerit
agencies, which will aid officers in the field. CCA can also make sure that the Florida Fih and Wildhl'e
Conservation Commissioners hear and understand the concerns of our members, gi% ig\ Lou a %oice %11th our
state fisheries regulators.
In the longer term, there are many other projects that we can work on. Habitat retoration project:. .uch a,
emplacing oyster reefs in parts of the Harbor. Fisheries enhancement proiecis. such as the con-iructLion ol
artificial reefs. Damage mitigation projects, in areas where they make sense. ..dditionall. t here ate sonie \er\
big issues we would like to address. The decline in the Harbor's water quaht.N., shrimp boat operating m1 tnour
inshore waters, and continuous education of new residents about the importance of our aquatic resouirce-. are just
a few of them.
But the reality is that all of these things can't happen without you. CCA i a gras.roo s organuationfl. Ahich
means we rely on our local members. Every one of these projects requires funding and requires combined
volunteers. If you're willing to stop standing on the sidelines and become part of the solution. ue need you to get
involved. Charlotte Harbor needs you get involved.

thing that's ever happened for the

in the right direction.
If you agree with that assess-

Mr. Miller states in his letter, CCA
can't do a whole lot without the

people like you and me get involved,


this effort is guaranteed to fall flat
on its face.
I know CCA has lost a lot of friends
here over the years, but with new
folks taking over locally, maybe we
can actually make some good things
happen. It seems to me that it's at
least worth taking a chance.

On Saturday, March 8, 50 all-female fishing teams
will take to the water. Their goal: The heaviest bag of
10 ladyfish. The reason: To raise money for a Charlotte
County Habitat for Humanity Women Build project.
The fun actually gets started the night before at
the big Heels & Reels team party, which starts at 5:30
p.m. Friday, March 7, at the Punta Gorda Isles Civic
Association building. The party will be catered by Luigi's
Family Restaurant of Port Charlotte and will feature
some great raffles and silent auctions. Some of our local
firefighters will be making an appearance to help with
the raffles, and rumor has it they might not remember
to bring their shirts.
Since no one wants to get up too early after the
party, the tournament itself will get started at 9 a.m.
the next morning at Burnt Store Marina. Each team
will be responsible for rounding up their own boat and
fishing tackle. After a brief inspection (just to make
sure there are no sneaky ladyfish already on the boat),
the teams will be off and fishing.
Angling teams will consist of two to three women from
age 6 to 106. Because we know some of the ladies will
want to focus on the fun, they can choose to round out
their teams with a captain and a mate, who can be male
or female. The captain and mate are allowed to drive the
boat, bait hooks, take fish off the lines everything but
fish. For you true fisherwomen, fear not: You don't have
to have the guys on the boat if you don't want them.
All the fish will need to be kept on ice, because
they're going for a good cause as well: The Center for
the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) on Sanibel will
be taking them to use as food for their pelicans, herons
and other birds on the mend.
With the fish in the bag, our teams will return to
Burnt Store Marina for the weigh-in and awards cere-
mony, where some awesome prizes will be given out.
After that, it's time to party yet again this time with
a cookout and live music on the marina grounds.
All in all, it's going to be yet another WaterLine
tournament where we'll have some fun and do some
good. Ladies, get your teams together it's gonna be
a good one.

Redfish are scattered all over, but don't seem to be
feeding vigorously. Try the westwall for snook. Cobia
and pompano can be found just off the bars.

Flounder fishing has been productive on Pine Island
Sound beaches; try a tail-hooked shrimp on a jig-head.
Catch-and-release snook have been a great target
in local canals and at dock lights in the daytime.
Sheepshead and blackdrum have been solid around
inshore and nearshore structures hitting on live shrimp
and crabs. Good-sized crevalle jacks have been moving
through Pine Island Sound.


Look for amberjacks at least 25 miles
offshore near the reefs. Sheepshead, big
mangrove snapper and porgies are biting
10 to 15 miles offshore.

Nearshore structures have been providing
grunts, sheepshead and mangrove
snapper. Set up a knocker rig and bait it
with live or frozen shrimp, cut baitor crabs.


Trout are doing pretty good.
Bigger trout are swimming
along the east wall and in
Pine Island Sound. Lemon

Search for redfish along
Pine Island Sound. People
have been having the best

gold curlytail grubs.They are
not in big schools, so keep
your eyes peeled.

There's a lot of stuff that fishermen must
know to ensure consistent success. They've
got to know a myriad of regulations on fish
seasons, size limits and bag limits. They've got
to understand seasonal fish migrations and
behavior changes. They must be able to under-
stand and work with the fluctuating tides.
They must pay close attention to the weather.
They have to know the best baits. They need to
be able to tie strong knots. They've got to be
master boat mechanics and tip-top rod and reel
repairmen. They've got to be able to sniff out
the faintest rumors of recent fishing success,
and be able to separate fact from the fiction
which so often permeates these shadowy tales.
Yes, the head of any capable angler is
crammed full of knowledge that's vital to the
success of his craft. Sadly, it seems that many
of the most avid anglers are so head-over-

heels consumed by love of their sport that
they don't fare well in matters of the heart,
as many fishing widows will attest. So, as a
public service to our angling readers, here's an
announcement which may surprise many of
you: Tomorrow is called Valentine's Day, and it
is the one day of the year when a little added
effort on your part is expected.
Tomorrow is indeed a special day. Not only
is there a nice outgoing tide around sunset,
as a bonus the wind should be laying down
nicely as this cold front pushes through, and
the fish should be ready to chew by night-
fall after sitting out the recent blow. Even
better, restaurants and movie theaters will be
jam-packed with kissy-faced couples, meaning
that there's a good chance that you'll have your
favorite fishing spot all to yourself. However
- and this is where so many anglers get into


trouble it's Valentine's Day, so you can't
simply go fishing like you would on any other
Friday afternoon with such good conditions.
No, on this special day you must first tend to
your relationship obligations, and the best
way to do this is to make your significant other
think that they are granting you permission
to go fishing. I know, I know; it's complete
madness to think that we ever actually need
permission to fish. But if you can pull this off
once per year, then it's much less likely you'll
find the front door locks changed when you
return home in the wee hours.
Fishermen tend to be lacking in the
tenderest nuances of the fair language of
love, so I've compiled a list of ice-breaking
comments that you can employ before popping
the big question. Below are the top ten, in no
particular order.

Diving has inherent risks, and these risks
increase the closer we come to the limits
of our training and experience. We can
mitigate risk by good dive planning, but
nothing can replace sound decision-making
and personal responsibility to help ensure
our safety.
It often takes a close call or tragic acci-
dent to demonstrate how important it is to
make good decisions and to be a respon-
sible diver. A case in point is the recent
death of father and son at Eagles Nest Sink
in Hernando County. While the death of
any diver is tragic, in this case this acci-
dent is directly attributable to very poor
decisions and total lack of responsibility on
the part of the divers involved. Eagles Nest
Sink is considered by many to be the most
dangerous cave dive in Florida, primarily
because of the structure of the site and its
extreme depth. In this recent accident, the
adult diver was only certified as an open
water diver, and the young man was not
certified at all. Despite the lack of proper
training, the two divers made the decision
to enter the cave system a decision
which led to their death. Investigation
thus far reveals that both divers clearly
exceeded their training, exceeded recre-
ational depth limits and ran completely
out of breathing gas. Sources also indicate


that these two had engaged in this kind of
irresponsible behavior before at this site
and others.
Because we operate a dive center and
charter dive boat, we unfortunately hear
about such incidents all too often. In fact,
we tried to cut off a potential incident just
yesterday. We took a phone call from an
individual who had lost his certification
card and wanted to know how he could
get a new one. During our conversation,
the caller revealed that he was certified in
1975, and had not done any diving at all
since. It was clear that the caller's intention
was to obtain a new card so he could dive
on an upcoming vacation. While we were
able to verify with the appropriate agency
that he had been certified in 1975, we
strongly advised the caller that he should be
retrained/re-certified before attempting to
dive. We pointed out that a lot had changed
in 39 years, and that there is no way that his
current skill level would allow him to dive
safely. As a note, we did not move forward
to re-issue a C card but we did make him
aware of the proper steps to take and the
costs involved. Despite the advice the caller
was given, there is no great confidence
that he will follow it and make a sound and
responsible decision. Assuming the caller
was 18 when he was originally certified,


he would be at least 57 now. As a dive
instructor, I know that diving skills are quite
perishable, and time and age take their toll.
I hope this gentleman makes the respon-
sible decision, or at least doesn't decide to
dive aboard our vessel.
So what are the guidelines for a respon-
sible diver? As a NAUI instructor I have my
students commit to NAUI's Responsible Diver
Practices quite an extensive list. But all
divers should follow these basic principles to
ensure their safety and that of other divers.
Obtain the proper training to dive. Never
assist an uncertified person to dive or allow
them to use your dive gear.
Understand your personal limitations
and the limitations of your training and
experience. Never consciously exceed your
limitations.
Never dive when you are ill. Never medi-
cate yourself to dive.
Never use alcohol or other drugs before
or while diving.
Get professional training to learn new
diving techniques and skills, before using
new equipment, or when diving in new or
unfamiliar locations.
Follow all local rules and regulations.
Plan your dive, and dive your plan. Use
proper dive tables or a dive computer to
track your decompression status. During

SHave fun,


planning set reasonable depth and time
limits, and reserve some of your breathing
gas as a contingency for use at the end of
your dive.
Use the buddy system never dive
alone unless you have been properly trained
and equipped to do so.
Respect the rights of others, and try to
be a positive example for other divers.
Take responsibility for your own safety
while diving, and assist other divers within
the limits of your ability and training.
Diving should be fun, and it usually is
when all the proper planning and safety
measures are taken. But we should also
recognize that one bad decision could
lead to circumstances that may pose great
danger to ourselves and others. My advice
is use common sense, rely on your training,
and don't let anyone influence you to follow
their bad decision.

\llal irLne File ph.:.l.:.
Anybody can luck into a nice fish
every now and then, but it takes
time to learn how to catch the
good ones on a regular basis.


As anyone who has been fishing in Southwest
Florida will tell you, there's a learning curve
that every angler has to climb. No one is born
knowing everything there is to know about our
waters and how to fish them. The important
thing is to not get discouraged by failures at
least you're learning what to not do.
This can be especially frustrating for anglers
who move here from other parts of the country.
It's not easy going someplace new, and going
from fresh to salt water is very intimidating.
Here's something to keep in mind: Most of
our saltwater fishing is not so different from
freshwater bass fishing. Forget about the open-
ocean fishing you've seen on TV redfish and
snook have much more in common with the fish
you've probably been catching all your life. Of
course, it's not exactly the same, but at least a
lot of the basics will carry over.
There are a few things that you can do to
become a better fishermen here (or anywhere,
for that matter). The first thing to do is what
you're doing now: Read local magazines and
papers. They're a great resource, and the more
localized the content is, the better. Look up on
the Internet about local fishing. The Florida
Sportsman forum has a bunch of local users
who are usually willing to help with specific
questions, and you can also read the answers
to questions others have asked. Stop at a local
tackle store (not a chain stores). You will find
employees and fellow customers who will
chat and share some info. Usually they'll be
very helpful. Join a local fishing club. Attend
seminars whenever you can.
The key is not being afraid to ask questions.
Yeah, you'll get a few sideways looks when you
ask about something that many people who
have been here a while regard as obvious. But so
what? Swallow your pride. Everybody starts at
the beginning, even the guys who think they're
the experts now. Believe me, there was a time
when they didn't know nuthin'about nuthin'.
Hire at least two charter captains. This is
a great opportunity to do the same kind of
fishing in two different ways, so you can be
multidimensional when you're out there on
your own. You'll also see some different areas,
which will help you get a feel for the kinds of
locations you can expect to find fish. Choose
your guides with care get recommenda-
tions from the tackle shops or your fellow


LEARNING CURVE:
When it comes to
figuring out our local
waters, everybody has
tostart at the beginning

anglers. And be sure to let the captains know
you want to learn, not just catch. This educa-
tion isn't cheap, but it will save you a ton of
time, money and aggravation in the long run.
Another reason to hire two guides: You'll
get a chance to go out in a couple of different
boats, so you can ask questions about why
they have a particular model with a particular
engine and their particular accessories. If you
already own a boat, hire a captain to take you
out in your boat so you can learn in your boat.
Realistically, you can fish this area without a
boat, but there are a lot of areas you can't get
to and a lot of opportunities you'll miss out on.
Once you learn something, try to hang on
to it. I forget stuff all the time, and I'm pretty
sure I'm not the only one. It helps to have
a refresher or reminder. Keep a fishing log,
journal or diary. This is a long-term project,
but the knowledge is priceless. One of the
very best things about fishing here is that
you'll never stop learning. I get to learn every
day. Sometimes I just get reminded of stuff I
already knew but have misplaced in my mind.
Fishing here can be intimidating. There are
so many species and areas to choose from. It's
important to keep perspective, though. Fishing
is a recreational activity, so make having fun
your main goal. Take it one day at a time. It
took you years to learn the waters where you
came from, so don't expect to learn ours in a
weekend. The Harbor and connected waterways
are so huge and complex that no one really
knows everything about them. Even if you had
10 lifetimes, you could never truly learn it all
- and really, that's far from a bad thing.

It never bodes well when the conversa-
tion starts with, "You're not afraid of heights,
right?"That's how my day began, with a
phone call as I walked through the door to
work at Peace River Wildlife Center. I had
expected to meet with the president of the
board of directors and a strategic consultant.
I know, scintillating stuff. So when the call
comes in for a rescue, I'm not available. Until
it seems that no one else is available either.
The caller claims an osprey is hung up in a
tree, alive and flapping, about 30 feet in
the air. Charlotte County Animal Control will
send an officer, but that could take hours,
since they are having another particularly
busy day. Again. Those guys (and gals) work
their butts off saving domestic animals from
the clutches of evil (OK, sometimes simply
uninformed) humans, and we are eternally
grateful that they help us with wildlife
emergencies as much as they do.
One of PRWC's rescuers is out sick with
Lyme disease, onejust had back surgery,
and the other is taking care of a sick relative
in one of those places where it snows.
(I don't even attempt to tell those great
white northern states apart anymore.)
Mental note: We need more rescuers. So,
OK, I can run over and pick up the incapac-
itated osprey and be back in time for my
meeting. Except that it's on the Boca Grande
Causeway, a 45-minute drive each way. And
then there is the little fact that it is 30 feet
in the air. I have been told the work crew on
site has a lift device that can get me up to
the bird. Good a plan. I can ride in one
of those bucket thingies, cut the bird from
the limb, bring him down to complete the
extraction and give him a quick once-over.
If he's healthy enough, I'll just release
him right there. If he needs any medical
attention or just to be monitored, I will bring
him back to PRWC. I pack up my kennel,
gloves, sheet and towel. No, Josh, I never go
anywhere without a towel either. Do you
honestly think I learned nothing from The
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?
I finally arrive at the Boca Grande
Causeway and locate the crew from Leo
Pfliger Construction that called in about the
distressed bird. They are a group of grown
men that at first glance you would expect
to see trying to shoot a bird out of the sky
rather than spending hours tracking down
someone to help them rescue one in peril.
You would be wrong. (Have you noticed how
often "you" are wrong here?) Rick Amend,
this osprey's fairy godfather, shows me
to the base of the tree that is holding our
patient captive. We all assume the bird is
tied up in fishing line. The plan is to go up in
the bucket, cut the line, and bring the bird
down to safety.
Couple of problems with that plan. First
of all, there is no bucket. Rick and his motley
crew have a giant forklift with a pallet


Grab an osprey|



by the big toe N


slipped onto the forks that they think will
reach the bird. I reassure Rick that I can go
up with him to take care of the bird. About
halfway up I realize I am very wrong. I am
clinging to the load backrest for all I'm
worth. As my sweaty palms lose their grip, I
think I am actually sinking my nails into the
metal in my desperate desire to not plunge
to my death in front of the small crowd that
is gathering to watch the rescue. "It's just like
a ride at the carnival:'" Rick reassures me. He
thinks. I have been known to get queasy just
watching other people ride those unstable
deathtraps. Rick motions to the lift operator
to stop and take us back down. Of course,
the lift operator can't hear a word over the
roar of the engine. He stops, then goes
higher. Stops again as Rick frantically waves
his arms. Then we lurch upward again. Even-
tually I am delivered back to earth, feeling
like the failure of a rehabberthat I am,
having put my own life before the safety of
one of my patients. But not so distraught as
to forgo a happy dance to celebrate life with
feet planted on terra firma (or maybe I just
stumbled because my knees went so weak).
Plan B: Rick grabs his son, Robert, and the
two of them ascend toward the osprey. The
two of them will cut the small branch that
the bird is attached to and bring the whole
thing down. From down here it doesn't
look so high. But as the forklift reaches its
pinnacle, Rick is still a good 5 feet from
reaching the bird. Good may not be the
correct term.
Plan C (Molly Brown's got nothing on this
guy): Rick lops off a few straggler branches

Tourney time.


Once again, the eve of a new tournament
season is upon the bass club that I belong to.
The nerves are kicking in and I can't wait for
the alarm to go off so I can get to the lake
and see what we can make happen. I got the
boat out of the shop yesterday, so it too is
ready to run. Bring on tomorrow morning!
This is always one of my favorite times of
year. Nothing can beat the excitement I get
before a tournament. It's funny, though I
always got up early for competition even
when I coached or played sports when I was
younger. But when the game is later in the
day, you had all day to try and get your mind
right for the actual event. With fishing, you
don't get much time in the day to get worked
up after all, take-off is safe daylight. I
usually get my nervousness out of the way
the night before the tournament.
The only thing that I am dreading is a
weather pattern change that showed up
midweek. The original forecast a week out
was for a sunny day with some wind. Now
I have to deal with overcast skies, wind
and some light rain in the morning, not to
mention the temperature is going from an
original forecast of 76 degrees to 69. When
you have spent time watching bass cruising
the edges of beds for a week, knowing good
and well the bass are waiting for a few
degrees more in the water temperature to
really lock onto the beds, having overcast
skies with rainy conditions makes sight
fishing almost out of the question.
Fortunately, I did not put all my eggs in
one basket. I have found some bass in the
pads on a swimbait, and gotten some bites
on a crankbait in the deeper, clearer lakes.
I really believe that this will be the way to
catch the bigger fish. With the water warming
like I had hoped, I do believe the bigger
female bass will be moving closer to the beds,
if they have not got on them already. The
tough part is trying to figure out exactly what
stage they are in without seeing them. Did


they go in and spawn already, or did they just
get to the point where they are moving up on
the beds?
I also managed to get a few bass flipping
matted-down grass lines. Anytime a frontal
system comes in, fishing matted vegetation
is a good way to go. You just have to be thor-
ough and be patient, and also be diverse in
how you fish this type of vegetation. I plan on
cranking bass early, and hopefully I'll land a
few. But if the sky lightens up at all and I can
see into the water, I'll go on the hunt for the
bedding bass I found. I do have my waypoints
to get me back to where these beds are.
Tonight I will get the batteries on charge,
retie some baits, put some heavier weights on
our soft plastic rods due to an increase in the
wind, and get the tackle ready to go. I will
put the rods in the boat in the morning, but
once the wife (fishing partner) and daughter
go to bed, I will hook the truck up before I
call it a night. Anything I can do to cut back
on getting ready in the morning allows me
to sleep just a few minutes more (although
I'm usually one of those guys who wakes up
throughout the night looking at the clock,
wondering if it's time to go).
Last year was a good year, but we were so
close to doing so much better that I want to
really get this year off to a big start. Coming
out with a win would be awesome, but simply
proving the patterns I found in practice will
hold out will give me confidence in what we
need to do the rest of the year when it comes
to finding fish. My biggest concern tomorrow
morning will be whether or not my wife can
handle the weather. She hates the cold and
hates the rain when it comes to fishing. Me, I
hate the wind and it appears we'll have to
battle all three.

Let's talk about varied views on tourna-
ments, especially big-money events.
I did fish The World's Richest Tarpon Tourna-
ment last year. It was the only money event
I've fished for a decade. That's a leader-release
event -in fact, if you hold your trophy too
long it's disqualified. Confirm it's a silver king,
grab the minimum 10O-foot leader and release.
I enjoyed the event. We all had fun fishing the
traditional live bait method with a fair chance
to win significant money. I understand these
events can be good as fundraisers and promo-
tional expositions of our fishing merchandise
and guides, so I accept they can be very
positive exposure for all involved if they're
controlled effectively. I fished all the tarpon
events in Boca Grande Pass from 1981 into the
'90s; my last Miller's tournament was in '95. I
enjoyed the early years until it became clear
to me that professional teams were taking
over,"competing" against amateur clients and
taking the money. Tournaments here were
started to promote charters and our red-hot
tarpon catching. Then the Boca Grande jig took
over. That was the last straw for me, so I quit
fishing the Pass in 95. We won second place in
our first and last event, plus some first-place
finishes and most releases, so we were compet-
itive while fishing with clients.
So why do I now have issues with most
money tournaments today? Well, I'm older,
and I have learned and seen a lot. When you
offer money or high-value prizes, it promotes
greed and egos, at the expense of fishing. I


don't see how you can offer big money and
eliminate the selfish, disrespectful, I'm-the-
greatest attitudes. Plus people do things that
are wrong for money. Look at the problems
with the PTTS and weighted hook snagging.
Now they defiantly brag of attempts to
modify the Boca Grande jig to get around the
law's intent of not snagging tarpon.
I'm not the first guy to ever get fed up with
tournaments. By 1943, famed outdoor writer
Hart Stilwell said he'd had enough of tourna-
ments; the abuse to the fish disturbed him.
"I had seen so much crummy lack of sports-
manship put on display by sportsmen'that I
didn't want to even be in a rodeo again," he
said. "And if you want to see the sportsman at
his worst, watch as he competes for a S5,000
boat or some other prizes." Remember that
this was in 1943, when S5,000 was a lot of
money. His words mirror my observations;
especially of the PTTS and some of the redfish
events, which I'll talk about another time.
Tournaments aren't necessarily bad,
though. There can be opportunities to learn
from better fishermen and sharpen your
skills. The intensity of competition can be
productive. The trick is to come up with a
balance that makes a tournament a positive
experience for all competitors, not just the
winners. With big prizes, the only sharing is
observing your teammates, because competi-
tors don't like to share info that can cost them
winnings by helping you.
If you must do any dead fish events, I


believe that the only eating fish targeted
should be abundant, underutilized species
like Spanish and king mackerel or sheeps-
head. I'm much more excited about the
targeting of ladyfish for a couple of events.
Jacks would also work; they fight and need
control. If we don't harvest any species it can
get out of control. Jacks eat till all the food
is devoured; they fill up, regurgitate and
eat again until all the minnows are gone.
I've seen them wipe out tons of baitfish in a
few hours. Just be sure fish are not wasted;
it's disrespectful to nature's ways to kill and
waste! Tournaments ought to encourage
participants to scatter out and enjoy all our
waters and fishing. Stop concentrating efforts
into restricted areas, targeting the same
fish. Also consider encouraging family- and
fun-oriented events instead of greed and
glory. Encourage the camaraderie and fellow-
ship, education and conservation. Proper
etiquette, fish handling, how close is too
close, when space varies with depth of water
or species fished, respect for other's space and
spots all need to be taught. So please let's
use our voices to help others learn the proper
ways of the water. If I can learn to help more,
so can you.
I'm for concepts like the old Miami Met or
Palm Beach Fishing Club; they encouraged
sportsmanship and the challenge. This is
the digital age, use pictures and let fish go
immediately. You can email then show almost
live action on big TVs promptly for viewing


at the host site. Promote the fun and enjoy
our fabulous Florida fishing. The objective is
enough competition to challenge us but not
so much so we can't enjoy the process.
It's one thing to have a leader-release event
for big fish or a photo release for smaller fish,
and something entirely different to do damage
to our precious marine resources by needlessly
injuring or killing fish. Excessive or improper
handing of fish is disrespectful and selfish. You
have to make up your mind as to what's right for
you, but if we don't take care of our fish today
they won't be there for any of us tomorrow.
We do have some of the best fishing in
America, but I've seen enough to know we
can improve it significantly. This is not about
how bad things are; it's about how we can
make them even better. We have added a lot
of boats and folks to our fishing area. Many
more are coming. The state is predicting
100 million visitors this year in Florida; plus
20-some million of us full-time residents. If
we want to even hold our own, we must learn
how to get along and protect our resources
for our fish and fishing. We could be at a
tipping point, risking the loss of our fishing.
Why would many of us live here if we didn't
have fishing?

When I moved to the Gulf Cove area in 2009,
I thought I might like to get a boat and try
out my sea legs. My grandfather always had
a small boat with a huge Johnson two-stroke,
and it seemed pretty dependable. When I
started my search, I knew I wanted to stay
away from the inboards and I would have to
have a small boat one that I could put in the
water by myself. I found a 15-foot Hobie skiff
with a Mercury outboard on Manasota Key.
The motor seemed to run well, and for a
few thousand dollars I took the rig home.
Naturally, I wanted to have it checked out by a
local marina, but they were all running about
a month behind, with no one having time to
even look at what I had. I had ask my neigh-
bors and they told me about this guy who did
great work on the side and charged less than
the marina. He was very well recommended,
so I took the boat to him. He said I needed a
battery and the valve cover gasket was leaking
a bit. I gave him a check for several hundred
dollars to get the parts and start the work.
After several weeks, I came home one day to
find my boat in the yard with the motor lying
on the deck in pieces. The nice guy left the
state and took my money with him.
I took the boat to several marinas, and
they told me they could put the motor back
together but it wouldn't be dependable. So I
started to look for a used two-stroke motor -
anything to get me on the water. It proved to
be a challenge to find a good motor, so I had to
settle for a rebuilt Johnson 60-horse sold by a
local boat shop. The motor was as expensive as
the boat had been, and the money was adding
up!
My first day out, that motor wouldn't start
for the world. I took it back to the shop and
they told me it was most likely flooded, as
the carbs were set rich for the break-in of the
new motor. They recommended that I break
the motor in by varying the RPMs. So I started
out in Lemon Bay and was pulled over by the
marine patrol for going too fast. I told the
officer that I was just trying to break in the


motor and it was only my second time it the
boat. I don't think he believed me, as he told
me it was only his second time as well. I had all
my safety gear and had taken a boating course,
so he just gave me a warning.
My third time out, I got about 100 feet from
the dock and the boat stalled. When I tried to
start it back up, the starter went click, click,
click. That's right bad starter, so I had it
replaced. I was assured by the mechanics that
the boat would run better after break-in. I
could always start it easily at home, but as
soon as it hit the water it was hard-starting.
My fourth time, I went out to Stump Pass and
anchored the boat. When I pulled the anchor
I couldn't get it started. The tide was headed
out quickly, with the current taking me into
the pass. I jumped out and threw the anchor.
Finally after 20 minutes of trying, it just
started. I thought about just letting the boat
go out with the current at this point. I got back
to the dock and the motor wouldn't raise. The
shop said it was just a loose wire.
After that close call I parked it until my
brother-in-law came for a visit. He loves to fish,
and my wife told me to take him out. Sure -
what could possibly happen? We launched at
the El Jobean ramp and were having a good
day catching lots of fish. The sun was going
down and wouldn't you know it? the
motor that had started well all day didn't.
Luckily the tide was coming in, and we found
ourselves stuck under the pier with a motor
that wouldn't start. It was a Sunday, so most
of the stores were closed and the people who
could help us were at home. We sent my wife
to Walmart. She found us a trolling motor
that we were able to hook to the battery and
limp back to the ramp. I think we got in at
midnight.
The shop said it was a bad magneto. So my
wonderful rebuilt motor that didn't have even
ten hours running time needed a starter and a
magneto. I have since parked the darn thing,
but I haven't given up the ship I have too
much money invested to just quit now!

ON CHARLOTTE HARBOR Chuck Taylor
does not know how fast his boat will go when
it sails for the first time in the Charlotte
Harbor Regatta. For himself, Bob Hill and Tom
Ray, it will be a learning curve.
Taylor's 14-foot Laser vessel is distinctive
- one of only two, named XL1 and XL2, that
will be equipped with experimental foil wings
- not the usual floppy sail. The Punta Gorda
resident built the wing sails using carbon
fiber, and they are extremely light, weighing
just 8 pounds each. The total weight for each
two-piece sail is 18 pounds, with 80 square
feet of sail. At first, Taylor used 1/8-inch
plywood two-by-fours and pine ribs to make
them. That produced only 32 square feet of
sail that weighed in at 50 pounds.
"The carbon fiber allowed an overall
25 percent reduction in weight, with an
increase in durability and appearance" Taylor
said.
Tom Ray, who was assisting Taylor and
piloting one of the Lasers, said the carbon
fiber was placed over foam.
"Around the foam are gauze pads that have
a honeycomb structure,' he said. "When resin
is applied, it flows around a channel, but not
into the gauze pads. The result is a very light
sail."
"It's a two-piece sail" Taylor added. "The
design came from the 2010 America's Cup,
when the first slotted wings competed in the
race."
Working out of his workshop near the
airport, Taylor said he has been experi-
menting with different designs for his wing
sails.


"My early stuff was like a box,' he said.
"Then I made an angular one, and then a
curved one that was narrow at the top and
then widened at the bottom.":'
Taylor said he used clysar, a thermoplastic,
to cover his sails, hoping the material will
allow his Laser wing sails to increase their
speed.
"If you adjust it right, you'll go like hell,'
he said.
Ray said he has used the wing sails on only
one occasion, and he is excited to see how
they will perform at sea.
"I sailed a Hobie Bravo, like a catamaran,
using the wing sail' he said. "It's hard to tell
what you're doing wrong. A soft sail will start
flapping letting you know, but not a hard sail.
If you do it right, however, it will reward you
with speed.":'
Ray said the fastest boat using a slotted
sail is the Sail Rocket, which has been clocked
at 65 knots.
"It can pass you on the freeway," he said.
Bob Hill, piloting the other Laser wing sail,
said speed is an unknown factor, until they
can get out on the harbor.
"Even in a low wind, the wing sails are
more efficient than a soft sail,' he said. "But
we'll see when we get out there."'
Taylor said at last year's regatta there were
100 Laser Masters in the Harbor; this year
there are just two, both owned by him, with a
third under construction in his workshop.
"I would've liked to have seen how mine
would've performed against them;" he
said. "But, just like the America's Cup, we
have to learn as we sail. That's how we'll
improve'."

Charlotte Harbor



Regatta wraps



up 5th event


By Brian Gleason
Special to Waterline

CHARLOTTE HARBOR At the
awards ceremony capping off the 5th
annual Charlotte Harbor Regatta, Joe
Blouin accepted the trophy for winning
the Inaugural Will White Cup, wrapped
his arm around White and thanked
him for everything the author of "The
Sunfish Book" and producer of"The
Sunfish Bible" has done for the Sunfish
class and sailors everywhere.
Blouin topped David Silverman by
five points over six races to win the
silver cup. Sunfish Florida Peninsula
Region Representative Chris Gates took
third, two points behind Silverman.
The trio were among the 100 sailors
in 69 boats in 11 classes to compete
in the regatta on Charlotte Harbor in
Southwest Florida's Charlotte County.
Mark Bryant won the 2.4mR class,
winning five of six races over Paul
Tingley and Tony Pocklington. Knox
Rodger and John Adams won the F16
class. Ravi Parent and Sam Armington
won eight of 10 races to win the F18
class over Sam Charles Tomeo and
Dalton Tebo.
Samuel Thomas and Lon Sherman
took the Flying Scot title over Bob
Knowles and Martin Holland, while the


father and son team of Paul and Nate
Willsey placed third.
William Jeffers and William Whalen
held off a late charge by James and
Sharon Herbert to win the Hobie
16 class by five points, despite the
Herberts' winning the final two races
on Day Three. Jim Sadjak and Tina
Pastoor took third.
Bob Hill, sailing one of three experi-
mental Laser Wings designed by Chuck
Taylor, won what organizers cheekily
called the Inaugural Laser XL World
Championship. (See Al Hemingway's
story about the XL on next page.)
Jim and Carol Nuzzo won the
Precision 15 title over Jan and Christi
van Heek and Bob Sween and Bonnie
Flaherty. The Nuzzos won four of six
races enroute to the victory. Rick
White, publisher of Catsailor Magazine,
won six of seven races to win the Hobie
Wave class over Ray Matuszak and
Sharon Woodruff.
Keith Rice won six of 11 races,
including three on Day Three to defeat

NEW WAY TO EXPLORE


%j ~


Jules Verne, eat your heart out. Oceanographer and "sea
architect"Jacques Rougerie is spearheading the creation
of a sea exploration vehicle that makes any imagined
before look modest. It's called the SeaOrbiter, and it just
lastweek passed its funding goal on the crowdfunding
site KissKissBankBank Roguerie raised 70 percent of
the money himself, and went to the public for the final
30 percent of the roughly $48 million total cost. The
wind- and solar-powered vessel is designed to roam the
water 24/7, searching for new life forms, lost civilizations
and more. The vessel will be 190 feet tall, with roughly
102 of those feet under water. It will have space for 22
permanent residents, including pressurized quarters for
deep-sea divers (or"Aquanauts"), so they can come and
go without worrying about decompression. Sub-aquatic
bees will swarm around the ship gathering data, while
remote-operated vehicles plumb the ocean's deepest
depths. There's even a pressurized space simulator for
astronaut training. Construction will begin in the spring,
and its initial explorations will be in the Mediterranean.
COUNT THE FISH IN THE SEA
For years, marine biologists have known that the bulk of
the ocean's fish live in open water between 650 and 3,300
feet deep (a region of the sea called the"mesopelegic
zone"). Their estimate of the amount of fish living there was


about a billion tons. However, a team of researchers used
acoustic observations to measure fish biomass and have
concluded that their abundance could be at least 10 times
higher. In a study published in Nature Communications,
researchers with the Malaspina Expedition, a project led
by Spanish National Research Council researcher Carlos
Duarte, took measurements between 40N and 40'S, from
200 to 1,000 meters deep, during the day."Malaspina has
provided us the unique opportunity to assess the stock of
mesopelagic fish in the ocean"said Duarte. "Until now we
only had the data provided by trawling. It has recently been
discovered that these fishes are able to detect the nets and
S run, which turns trawling into a biased tool when it comes
to count its biomass."The study is one more reminder of
how much we still don't know about the oceans that cover
the majority of our planet
NOW COUNT THE MANATEES


During two cold snaps late last month, biologists
conducted a manatee count in the warmer power plant
discharge waters on both coasts of the state. According
to a press release from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, officials reported a preliminary
count of 4,831 manatees. Gil McRae with the FWC said
in a statement they were"encouraged by the relatively
high count, especially given the high number of manatee
deaths documented recently." FWC manatee biologist
Holly Edwards said it's important to remember, though,
these cold snap counts tend to under-count Florida's
manatee population."Even though it's not a population
estimate, it does give somewhat of a ballpark to go with,"
she said. "It certainly wouldn't be encouraging if we got
out there and didn't count very many. So, at least it tells
us that we have a substantial number of animals still out
there that are alive."Toxic algae blooms on the west coast


and unknown diseases on the east coast killed a record
number of manatees last year. More than 800 manatees,
which is about 16 percent of an estimated population of
5,000 manatees, died in 2013.


DON'T FEED THE WHALES


A prominent marine biologist and co-owner of Monterey
Bay Whale Watch who was fined $12,500 for feeding
killer whales in an effort to lure them closer to her video
cameras says the yearslong case was the "worst night-
mare I could ever imagine." In addition to the fine, Nancy
Black whose work has appeared on PBS, National
Geographic and Animal Planet was sentenced to
three years'probation and ordered to serve 300 hours
of community service. In exchange, she pleaded guilty
to one misdemeanor violation of the Marine Mammal
Protection Act by offering food to the orcas, "specifically
chunks of gray whale blubber," according to her plea
agreement. Investigators built their case on footage shot
by famed oceanographer Jean-Michel Cousteau, whose
crew also attempted to lure the orcas during the feeding
in April 2004 in Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
The judge also ordered Black to stay 100 yards from the
whales a punishment her attorneys warned could
be used against her by her whale-watching business
competitors if a whale swims close by on its own.
BREAKING THE LAW
Three Central Florida residents were jailed and two
infants were taken into state custody lastweek after


authorities found two frozen alligators, large quantities of
methamphetamine, a marijuana plant and an illegal fish
at a home in Lake Wales. Polk County sheriff's deputies
executed a search warrant that led to the arrests ofShane
William Park, Cortney Loraine Williams and Joshua Lee
Mellon, the Lakeland Ledger reported. Park and Williams
are a couple while Mellon was visiting the home at the
time of the raid. Mellon, also of Lake Wales, was arrested
on methamphetamine possession and drug paraphernalia
charges after sheriff's deputies allegedly found drugs on
him as the searched the house. Park and Williams, who
have twin 10-month-old infants, were charged with killing
or possessing an alligator, negligent child abuse without
bodily harm and armed trafficking in methamphetamine.
Two dead alligators were allegedly found in a freezer.
Williams told sheriff's deputies that she didn't have a
permit for the gators and she was planning to stuff them.
The gators weren't the only illegal animals found in the
house. Deputies found a black bass that was undersize.


DRESS FOR THE OCCASION
Long ago, when sailing ships ruled the seas, a captain and
his crew were in danger of being boarded by a pirate ship.
As the crew became frantic, the captain bellowed to his
first mate, "Bring me my red shirt!"The first mate quickly
retrieved the captain's red shirt, which the captain put
on, and led the crew to battle the pirate boarding party.
Although some casualties were taken, the pirates were
repelled. Later that day, the lookout screamed that there
were two pirate vessels sending boarding parties. The crew
cowered in fear, but the captain, calm as ever bellowed,
"Bring me my red shirt!"Once again, the battle was
on and once again, the captain and his crew repelled
the pirates. Weary from battle, the men sat around on deck
that night recounting the day's occurrences. An ensign
looked to the captain and asked, "Sir, why did you call for
your red shirt before the battle?"The captain, giving the
ensign a look that only a captain can give, exhorted, "If I lam
wounded in battle, the red shirt does not show the wound.
Thus, you men will continue to fight unafraid."The men sat
in silence marveling at the courage of such a man. As dawn
came the next morning, the lookout screamed that there
were more pirate ships on their way a dozen of them
this time, all with boarding parties. The men fell silent and
looked to the captain for his command. The captain, calm
as ever, bellowed,"Bring me my brown pants!"

As a professional fishing guide, I want
the fishing to be amazing all the time. But
it's not. We have to live in the real world,
and in the real world we can't have every-
thing we want.
I had the worst day of fishing last
Sunday. We let go a handful of small
sheepshead, a rat red and a few short trout
and brought back a couple sheepshead and
a bare-keeper trout. And we worked hard
for those fish, putting more than 60 miles
on the boat. If every day of fishing was like
that, I'd quit tomorrow.
That's fishing, though some days are
awesome, and some days you're better off
just watching clouds. In this case, I kind of
expected the fishing to be so-so. The tide
was just barely creeping out, and when
it turned to come back in, the wind had
started blowing out of the north and kept
the water from moving. No water move-
ment, no feed simple as that.
One of the toughest things about char-
tering is that my reputation is on the line
every single trip. When somebody books
me two months in advance, I don't know
what the weather will look like for the day
we're going to fish. And when someone
says they really, really want to catch a
redfish, I have to whatever I can to make
that happen even if the tide is flat and
the weather isn't cooperative.
That's why I envy the rest of you a little


bit. You have a lot more flexibility than I do.
If I had been going fishing on my own last
Sunday, I wouldn't have headed out onto
the flats. I probably would have headed
into the Gulf to have a look at the nearshore
reefs, or maybe done a bit of freshwater
fishing. Actually, what I probably would
have done is headed for the woods (it is that
time of year).
When the bite is unexpectedly lousy,
that's when you should do a bit of exploring.
How many spots do you fish? If you're like
most local anglers, you have somewhere
between two and ten fishing holes that you
keep going back to. News flash: In the Char-
lotte Harbor area, there are about 100,000
places for you to fish. If you keep hitting the
same ten, you're missing out on a lot a
whole lot. Go up the Peace River. Check out
the backcountry of the east wall. When is
the last time you fished Pine Island Sound?
Each of those three locations has thousands
of honeyholes that you probably don't know
anything about. Take advantage of poor
fishing to look for spots that might be worth
checking on a day when the weather and
tide are willing to work with you.
If the weather is nice but the tides are
ugly, fishing offshore can be a much better
alternative to wasting time on the flats. One
of my favorite things about going out to the
reefs is that you really have no idea what's
going to swim by at any given moment. If


I've got something else I want to talk
about today. As you may have heard, I'm
now the president of the CCA Charlotte
chapter. If you've been involved with CCA
here in the past, you're probably aware of
some of the issues CCA has faced. I'm not
real big on looking backward, though I'm
more concerned with how to rebuild our
local chapter into a viable organization.
I have some ideas about how to do that,
and I'll bet you also have a few. We're
basically starting over with this chapter:
New people, new ideas, new motives. The
name may be the same, but that's about the
only thing. The guys who ran this chapter
in years past had their own ways of doing
things, and those ways worked very well
back then. Times have changed, though, and
it's necessary to change with them.
Some people have asked me why I chose
to get involved with CCA. It's simple I
pretty much want to do something to help
Charlotte Harbor. I know that CCA has a lot
of projects going on in a lot of areas, and


much of what they do in Florida and around
the country has value to us locally. But
what they haven't done is something that's
specific to the Harbor, and that's what I want
our local chapter to focus on.
Ideas are great, but they won't get us very
far on their own. We need some folks who
are willing to help out with turning those
ideas into reality. If that sounds like your
kind of thing, I'm hoping you'll be interested
in getting involved. Making any sort of posi-
tive difference is going to take a lot of us all
pulling together we can't rely on others
to do it for us. I can't say that we're going to
fix all this area's problems overnight, but it's
definitely time to start making some baby
steps in the right direction. Call me or email
me if you're thinking of helping with getting
the ball rolling here. I'll be happy to talk to
anyone about it.

if you've driven through Matlacha, the odds are you've
seen a funky-looking light green building on the side of the
road just before you cross the newly constructed Matlacha
Bridge. If you've never been inside, it's your loss espe-
cially if you're a fresh seafood fan.
Located on the Gulf of Mexico in the historic fishing town
that is Matlacha, Andy's Island Seafood opened its doors in
2004. What started out as a little seafood shop has turned
into a lot more.
Andy's sells the freshest local fish, including grouper,
cobia, snapper, hogfish, stone crab claws, wild Gulf shrimp
and other seasonal species. But they also carry mahi-mahi,
tuna, sea scallops, mussels, oysters, conch, lobster and much
more. In fact, if they don't have what you're looking for, you
can simply ask director of operations Brian Urso to special
order something rumor has it, if Andy's doesn't have it,
Brian can get it fresh, and quick.
Although all Andy's products are fresh and delicious, their
award-winning crab cakes have put them on the map, along
with their homemade Matlacha Seafood Chowder (gluten-
free) and various seafood spreads. And if you just can't wait
until you get home to taste Andy's delectable delights, you
can have Brian and his friendly staff serve some food up
right there in Matlacha.
Next time you're in Matlacha, take a break from shopping
the many art galleries and other stores, and take a seat
either inside or outside and enjoy a nice lunch or dinner at
Andy's. There's just something about sitting down, eating
fresh local seafood with a beverage of choice and soaking in
the scenery at Andy's in scenic Matlacha.
Andy's Island Seafood also can deliver to your door, and
has a mobile seafood market that makes various stops at
various events in Lee and Collier counties.
For more information about Andy's, delivery or its mobile
fish market, call 239-283-2525. Andy's Island Seafood is
located at 4330 Pine Island Road, Matlacha 33993.

Here we go again. Every time there's a
shooting incident, the media goes nuts, and
all we see are editorials and wild off-the-wall
comments many of which are so far off
the mark, untrue and biased, that predictable
confusion follows. One of my observations is
that the terminology used in these editorials
is very often incorrect. An editorial written by
this newspaper a couple weeks ago stated that
we can shoot someone if we"feel threatened.":'
It was written as a response to the shooting
in Wesley Chapel, near Tampa and it further
commented on the possible changes in Florida
law about brandishing a weapon and firing
warning shots. Nothing could be farther from
the truth.
The state statute applying to the use of
deadly force states that your life must be in
"imminent danger," or at the very least you
must be facing very serious bodily injury in
order to use lethal force. You must be able to
prove in a court of law that you felt your life
was in imminent danger. This is a long way
from simply feeling threatened. Even minor
assaults may not qualify in a court of law -
they must be serious and life-threatening.
The concept as stated by this newspaper in
its editorial that you can shoot someone
if you merely feel threatened is incorrect.
When I teach classes, I use as an example two
neighbors arguing over the fence, and when
the verbal encounter escalates to nasty insults
and profanity, one takes the garden hose he's
holding and slaps his neighbor across the
face and the nozzle cuts the neighbor's face.
It's assault and battery in anybody's book.
Could this person legally shoot his assailant?
Absolutely not. There's no jury in the state of
Florida that is going to consider a hose slap
life-threatening. As I instruct my students, a
situation such as this might make you want to
shoot your attacker, but it definitely doesn't
justify the use of deadly force.
Now, it would be perfectly OK to give
the assailant a faceful of pepper spray. Or if
you had a Taser, you could give him a taste
of non-lethal voltage. But you can't shoot
somebody for something this minor. If you
could, the ex-police officer in Tampa who shot
an assailant in a movie theater for throwing
a box of popcorn on him has been incorrectly
charged with murder. With all the training this
gentleman had gone through over the years,
one would think his training would have kicked
in and he would've done the right thing. When
you look at the Zimmerman case, you could
apply some of the same logic. In my opinion,
George Zimmerman was guilty of mistakes,
but not a murder. When I work armed security,
I'm equipped with and licensed to carry the
best gear I can buy. Just like law enforcement,
I carry a reliable handgun, but I also have a
Taser and a chemical spray usually pepper
gel, which I prefer over spray because it doesn't
blow around when it's windy.
What I'm saying is that I've got an alter-
native to lethal force for those situations
where I feel I can control the situation
without drawing my handgun. If I feel my
life is in imminent danger, I won't hesitate
to use lethal force, but these other tools and


training give me an option. In Zimmerman's
defense, without these options, he was faced
with a life-threatening situation, and in
my opinion, he did what he had to do. Had
he been a licensed armed security guard,
he would've had the proper training in the
proper equipment before he went on the job,
and things could have turned out differently.
In a nutshell, if you carry a gun, be licensed
by the state, pursue good training and carry
the proper credentials and equipment.
The editorial also mentions the current
discussions to change the rules on brandishing
and warning shots. In Florida, it's illegal in
most instances to brandish or show a weapon
in a threatening manner, and it's definitely
illegal to fire warning shots. On the state
security officer's exam, there are a few ques-
tions that refer to firing warning shots, and
the answer is always no. Many times, these
warning shots fall under the minimum manda-
tory sentencing guidelines, so if you fire a shot
at someone to scare them away and it is proven
that your life wasn't in imminent danger, you
could be looking at a sentence of up to 15 years
in prison. This is what recently happened to a
woman whose estranged husband was about
to attack her, and she fired a shot to scare him
away. She was convicted and sentenced under
these guidelines. She has now been granted
a new trial, but as the law stands, she's still
in serious trouble and is looking at 25 years.
Unfair? Change the law? That's opening up a
very dangerous can of worms.
If the warning shot rule is eliminated, I
can see the possibility of untrained people
who overreact to a minor threat or situation
firing rounds in places and conditions where
it is dangerous, and, in most cases, probably
unnecessary. On the other hand, a warning
shot or even brandishing a weapon might stop
a probable felony assault. As you can see, any
change to the existing rule of no brandishing
or warning shots will probably have dire
consequences.
Another possibility that I like would be
to remove the minimum mandatory part of
the law, and give the judges and juries more
leeway in considering the case on individual
merit basis. I hope the powers that be use
very careful judgment when looking this law
over. According to attorney John Gutmacher,
the author of the extremely good informative
book Firearms Law Use and Ownership, which
should be required reading for anyone with a
concealed weapons permit, there have been
some cases that went to court and are consid-
ered case law.
Bottom line is that it's still a very unclear
issue, and I don't recommend ever pulling or
showing a weapon unless you feel that your
life is in imminent danger. There are not many
situations where I'd pull my weapon without
feeling that my life was in imminent danger
and knowing I had the right to shoot. Always
remember, carrying a gun for self-defense is a
serious responsibility, and one not to be taken
lightly. Taking a human life, even to save your
own, is something that will stay with you for
the rest of your days. Use this power wisely.
I'm absolutely certain that the man in Wesley
Chapel wishes he had.
See you at the range. Safe shooting.

Disease


ills


starfish along




West Coast


By Devin Kelly
Anchorage Daily News

ANCHORAGE, Alaska In the aquarium at
the Anchorage Museum, starfish, silent and
slow, cling to rocks and wait to be lifted out of
the tank for petting.
These five-armed creatures hardly seem
prone to ecological drama. But last fall, the
museum's starfish started showing signs of
a disease that scientists say is killing starfish
colonies up and down the West Coast.
Symptoms of sea star wasting syndrome,
as it's called, have been reported as unnatural
twisting of the arms and white lesions on the
surface of a starfish's skin. A speedy death
comes after a loss of arms and softening of
tissue.
Along the West Coast, the population of
starfish is estimated to be in the tens of
millions. With limited data, scientists don't
know how many have succumbed to the
disease, but it may be in the tens of thousands
to the low millions, said Pete Raimondi, a
professor of ecology and evolutionary biology
at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and
the principal investigator on the Pacific Rocky
Intertidal Monitoring Group.
Similar die-offs have occurred before, but
an event of this magnitude has never been
documented, scientists said. Its presence has
been reported as far south as San Diego.
In Alaska, evidence of sea star wasting was
first observed last summer on Kayak Island, a
remote island in the Gulf of Alaska, Raimondi
said. His group was working with the Sitka
Sound Science Center to conduct coastal biodi-
versity surveys.
On the island, a number of diseased sea stars
were discovered, trumping an earlier theory
that the illness was linked to warmer water,
Raimondi said.
"It was the last place on earth where we
would have expected to see it, Raimondi said.
Researchers took pictures and left, and at
that point, the illness started showing up all
over the West Coast, he said.
On a recent morning, Anchorage Museum
curator Greg Danner walked into a back room
where sick animals are isolated for treat-
ment and care. Nicole Abeln, the animal care
technician, pulled out a white binder labeled
"Sea Star Wasting Disease Information and
Logbook."


She opened it up to a chart.
"Collections trip in Whittier. 1 mottled sea
star twisted and looking deflated;' reads one
entry from Aug. 25. That seastar was eventu-
ally euthanized.
The museum euthanized a total of 8 sea
stars between August and November. Symp-
toms ranged from white lesions of the arms to
a sea star that lost two arms during the day.
Museum staff had never seen anything like it.
But since November, the disease seems to
have vanished again, Danner said.
He said that changes the museum made to
its aquarium practices-namely, controlling tank
temperature by limiting the number of hands
in the water-may have made a difference. But
it's hard to tell.
"We're in the same mystery boat as the rest
of the world;'" he said.
Raimondi said the symptoms appear to be
highly present among starfish in captivity.
That could be a sign that stress was manifested
more quickly, he said.
Raimondi also said that the term "wasting"
applies to symptoms. These symptoms are
actually seen all the time, he said, and are
attributed to stress, such as a starfish drying
out or getting sick.
"The difference here is that when you see
it, it's present in animals that are where they
should be, rather than washed up on a beach
somewhere;'" Raimondi said.
The science so far appears to indicate that
species are affected differently depending
on physical location. For sea star species in
tide pool areas, the lesions or sores show up,
followed by tissue decay, Raimondi said. Death
might follow in a matter of weeks, or not at all.
But in underwater species with less
physical structure in the environment, the
results are catastrophic and quick, Raimondi
said. Decay happens in hours or a day, rather
than weeks.
Raimondi said scientists are close to identi-
fying the cause of sea star wasting syndrome.
A pathogen appears to be the most likely
culprit. Raimondi said, and there does not
appear to be a link between the wasting and
radiation leaked from Fukushima nuclear plant
disaster, as some have speculated.
Yet, if a cause of the disease is identified,
another uncertainty remains: how to stop it.
"Is it the type of thing that will heal itself
over time? That's the real question;' he said.

of activities. One that I wish I had more time
for is beachcombing. There's just something a
tiny bit magical about finding nature's works r ,-
of art sitting on the open sand. Anyone could
have walked by and picked it up but no one
did. It's mine for the claiming. ij '

seashells, there are several "specialties" that
you can indulge. Some folks like to collect
driftwood; others focus on wave-worn bits
of glass (which are more common on the
Atlantic coast). There are the guys who carry
metal detectors, which they use to find such
treasures as bottlecaps and lost nickels. Then
there's my wife, for whom no trip to the shore
is complete until she's found at least one
shark tooth.
Since shells are the easiest thing to find,
other than sand, I thought it might be helpful
for you to be able to identify a few of the
types you're likely to find on our Gulf beaches.
Let's start with bivalves, which are clam-type
mollusks with two hinged shells.

COQUINA (ko-KEEN-uh): When you watch
a wave come in and roll back out, look down
at the sand. Are there little things moving and
burrowing into the sand? Those are usually
coquinas, which are the only shell easier to find
alive than dead. They come in a wide variety of
colors cream, yellow, orange, blue, purple,
pink, brown and would be very decorative
if they were bigger than an inch.


Turkey wing.

QUAHOG (KO-hog): A stereotypical clam
shell, size large. Quahog shells are great for
making stuffed clams. The plain white shells
are also instantly recognizable as nautical
decor. Quahogs are the longest-lived animal
known, so a little respect if you find a live one.

PEN SHELL: These shells are large but thin
and fragile. It's not uncommon to find the two
shells still together. The interior part of the
shell has a shiny iridescent surface that reflects
purple and green. Small pieces of pen shell,
naturally polished by waves and sand, are very
common on many local beaches.

CALICO SCALLOP: Another multi-hued
species. The most common color is white with
dark reddish spatters, but mauve and orange
shells are not uncommon. Many also have
darker patterns. Obviously, the brighter colors
are preferable. My favorite type is orange and
pink in one shell.











Calico scallop.

ARK SHELL: Arks are very common and
plain in color. They're often overlooked by shell
collectors, but they have one virtue they're
very thick and durable, and they usually won't
break when boxed and shipped to family and
friends up north.

Ark Js. E


COCKLE: A large and showy shell that is also
relatively common. Sometimes tossed up live
by winter storms.


SPINY JEWEL-BOX: Jewel-boxes are
another deep-water species, so most of the
ones on the beach are considerably worn-
down. The spines of a live specimen are much
more impressive than the eroded shells you're
likely to find, but even with short spines they
are handsome shells.

TURKEY WING: This is technically a form of
ark shell, but it's much more decorative than
most of its cousins. Because they prefer to live
in deeper water, most turkey wings are pretty
beat up by the time they hit the beach. Storms


COMMON JINGLE: Despite being very thin
and translucent, jingles are remarkably tough.
They're also quite common. Drilled jingle shells
are popular in shell jewelry.
CALICO CLAM: These shells are brittle and
easily broken, so it's rare to find them in worn
condition usually they're
either in good shape or broken 1

LETTERED OLIVE: Olives are durable shells
and so are often found weatherbeaten and
partly broken. Good specimens have a glossy
finish, almost as if they were coated in varnish.
The patterns are like fingerprints easily
recognizable but never identical.







Lettered olive.

CROWN CONCH: These shells are more
common in the Harbor's brackish water than in
the open Gulf, though it lives in both places. Back-
water shells are usually overgrown with algae,
masking the striking pattern beneath, but are
usually found in good shape with sharp spines.
Beach shells are almost always worn down.


Univalves have just one shell. The most
familiar are the snails, though not every
univalve has a coiled shape. When collecting
univalves from the water or damp sand, be
sure there's nothing living in the shell. The
original inhabitant should be obvious, but a
hermit crab can pull far back into the shell -
look in the opening for the tips of its claws
sticking out. Shells in the water may also have
other occupants. I once had a tiny octopus
climb out of a whelk shell in my bucket. Lucky
for him I was still at the beach.
FIGHTING CONCH: A favorite of Florida
shelters because of its bright yellow to orange
coloration and large size (usually 3 to 4 inches).
Fighting conchs are common, though they're
often found broken. At times, you may come
across large numbers of live conchs as well.


Fighting conch.


LIGHTNING WHELK: These shells are beau-
tiful but are often used by hermit crabs, so be
sure to check twice. Sometimes you'll find huge
specimens that are broken and white or gray in
color. These are usually fossilized. Small ones
have the best coloration.


BANDED TULIP: A more durable shell
than the very similar true tulip, so it's a more
common beach find. As with the whelk, it's a
favorite of hermit crabs.


SLIPPER SHELL: Very common, and some-
times found alive adhered to other shells or
even stacked together. Plain in form but often
bright in color.


SHARKS-EYE: The most snail-like snail you'll
find here, and the most common representa-
tive of the moon snail family. Like the crown
conch, this shell is more frequently found in
the Harbor than on the beaches, and like the
whelk and tulip shells, it should be double-
checked for a hermit crab before collection.


LACE MUREX: The most common murex on
our coast, though not the only one. Like the
spiny jewel-box, murexes are covered in spines
that tend to be heavily eroded by the time the
shell reaches shore.


Lace murex.

FLORIDA CERITH: A tiny cone-shaped
shell that many overlook, the cerith is found
only by those willing to sift shells and seek
the little treasures. Beautiful in a dish or jar
of hundreds. The augers and wentletraps are
similar but rarer.


HORSE CONCH: Florida's state shell, and the
largest univalve in this part of the world. Large
horse conchs are more commonly found live
than dead. It takes moral fiber to collect only a
photo and let the conch go, but that's exactly
what you should do.

years -e the bite just hasn't
seemed to ignite. jus
It's not like there are no
fish; the sheepshead are there and anglers
are catching them. But the numbers and the
quality fish of 16-plus inches are not up to
snuff with what's become expected of one
of Southwest Florida's premier shore-bound
sheepshead destinations. The days of fish after
fish being hauled up on the rocks are becoming
elusive.
And what's more, this sluggish trend appears
to be taking root.
There are a few reasons why this phenom-
enon might be happening, so let's take a look
at a couple scenarios. As a disclaimer, let me
say this commentary is pure speculation based
on some concrete evidence and a little science.
I am by no means an expert on sheepshead
populations or spawning habits.
The first and foremost factor to consider
is the presence of the mitigation reef off
Venice beach. The nearshore reef, which was
completed in 2008, is quite close to the jetties.
It was installed to help keep the sand from the
beach renourishment in place, or to "mitigate"
the erosion of the renourishment. The reef is
7.3 acres and composed of concrete materials;
7.3 acres doesn't sound huge, but it's very long
and skinny, running parallel to shore.
With the reef being so close to jetties, some
sheepshead may be stopping there on their
way inshore and never venturing any farther.
And if that's the case, countless fish may be
tantalizingly close but not close enough.
I don't know how many anglers target
sheepshead on the mitigation reef, but I am
curious to know how the fishing is there.
That information could provide a piece of the
puzzle. Anybody want to go for a boat ride?
A second theory is that the beach renour-
ishment, completed in 2005, took a toll on
the sand flea population. That, in turn, might
make the sheepshead think twice about
sticking around the area if that food source is
scarce. I haven't been harvesting sand fleas
long enough to know the difference, but I can

tell you it's not always easy to rake healthy
numbers of fleas on Venice beach.
But there are plenty of other food sources
for sheepshead, so I don't know how likely that
theory is.
The explanation could also be as simple as
the ebb and flow of Mother Nature. Not all
famous fishing holes produce bumper crops
each and every year, and that could be exactly
what the jetties are experiencing: A waning
cycle. El Jobean had a down season this year,
but three years ago it was hands-down the
spot to beat.
There's also a chance that, by the time you
read this, the sheepshead may have invaded
the jetties in full force and the bite will have
come alive. But with the temperatures staying
on the mild side and spring taking hold of
weather patterns, I'm not so sure that will
happen.
And I don't think the earlier part of the
season was that impressive, either. My trips in
December and January saw meager yields, and
accounts from local anglers who fish the jetties
regularly sounded similar. The good news is
I don't believe it has anything to do with the
overall population of sheepshead. With as
many fish as I saw caught at Placida and Boca
Grande, the population seems as healthy as
ever.
Until next time, hook'em up and fight'em
hard. Fish on, fellow anglers.

All of us have seen the multiple
TV programs dealing with
survival. Most strand people in
barren places, out of touch with
civilization, all alone and having
to find a way to survive. It is not
likely any of us will be on a TV
series, but if you boat offshore,
there is a good chance you may
find yourself in a similar situation.


Could




you be a




survivor?


Poorly maintained vessels and insufficient
fuel are factors that increase the odds of your
being stranded. All too often, boaters forget
that in addition to the fuel required to reach a
destination they also need fuel to return. When
you are alone in a 20-foot boat and drifting
helplessly 15 miles or more offshore, believe
me, you are in a desperate survival mode. Your
cell phone and VHF radio are of no help that far
offshore. Without the proper safety equipment
and preparation, you are out of touch with
civilization and your survival depends on how
well you have planned and prepared.
If you left a float plan, friends and family
will be alerted when you do not return at the
forecast time. They will also have your approx-
imate location so that rescue teams know
where to begin looking for you. If you have
an EPIRB or a VHF radio that sends a locating
signal, then you have a way to help rescue
teams find you (providing you have properly
registered these devices) Having the proper
signaling devices such as flares that aren't
expired, smokes, mirrors and distress flags will
also help searchers find you as well as signal to
nearby boaters that you are in distress.
If you have not checked the weather fore-
casts, you are vulnerable to a sudden storm
along with the lightning and high winds that


come with it. Offshore waters can be quite
deep. Without sufficient anchor rode (rope,
to beginners) you will never be able to set an
anchor (if you even know how to do that) and
will drift helplessly with the prevailing winds
and currents. Remember that for a properly set
anchor to hold, the length of the rope attached
must be at least seven times the water depth.
That is a lot of rope length.
A key piece of safety gear is your life jacket.
Those classified as offshore greatly increase
your survival over the little keyhole style.
Offshore jackets have greater flotation, will
provide more protection against hypothermia,
and will rotate your head face-up when you
are helpless in the water. Having a light and
signal mirror attached to your life jacket is also
another way to assure you can signal rescuers
while helpless in the water. And while water is
the enemy of a stranded boater, dehydration
can quickly become a medical emergency,
so make certain your provisions include an
adequate amount of safe drinking water.
Make certain you plan and prepare for
every possible emergency so that you will be a
survivor and not a statistic.

Ill you nave a comment or question Ior
WaterLine editor Lee Anderson, email
him at Editor@WaterLineWeekly.com.


IF


LEE:
To all who worked on the Trout Scramble, fan-
tastic!!! Your efforts and dedication paid huge
dividends for All to enjoy. We were there as
observers and were not let down. I like the
sound of"First Annual."' Great location, great
music and everyone we spoke with seemed
to be having as much fun as myself. A truly
enjoyable"real Florida"type of day. Placida
sure rolled out the welcome wagon. Having
the Salvation Army there for their"Feed the
Hungry" program made a good time better.
Thanks for bringing communities together.
Steve Martin, Port Charlotte

STEVE:
The TroutScramble was our first legitimate
WaterLine event. I like to think it was a success. I like
it when people tell me how great it was, but I like
it much more when people tell us something they
would change for the next time. My father told me
long ago that you can learn more from critiques
than from compliments. The event was a success.
We will have more of them, and you could imagine
how many people had to come together behind the
scenes to help bring the community together. Our
next event is the WaterLine Heels and Reels Ladyfish
Tournament on March 8 at Burnt Store Marina. You
can flip this page to read more about it.
-Lee Anderson, WaterLine Editor

LEE:
I just want to say thanks guys for the great
article on the Southwest Florida Council of
the Blind Fishing Tournament on March 22
at the Cape Coral Yacht Club (5819 Driftwood
Pkwy, Cape Coral), and to let you know
there has been at least one captain that has
contacted us from the article. On your advice,
I have been working on a press release for the


I


visit www.Flatsmasters.com for more information


newspapers in the area of the tournament
and have been prepping up some notes to
go along with a release and follow-up phone
call for NBC-2 news. I'm excited because I've
been out of the media game for a few years
now, and I had almost forgot how much fun
it was for me to generate buzz and bring a
story out. To see something hit print and the
excitement of a news package for a tourna-
ment that I have seen make such a difference
in the lives of those involved, I'm fired up,
and it feels good. Last year the smiles, the
chatter, the fish stories between strangers
whose common ground is a disabilitythat
most of us would consider devastating, it was
amazing. The most impressive part was that
there was no"the blind guy,"just a group of
lying fishermen, exaggerating the size of
their catches. Proof that whether you can
see or not, every fisherman has a fish story.
Thanks again, gentlemen.
-Jim Evans, Port Charlotte

JIM:
Anything we can do to help out. We try to do
good, not bad, at WaterLine. Sounds simple, but
nothing ever is. Let us know what else we can do.
(For more information about the SWFCB or their
fishing tournament, email mulrich@centurylink.
net or call 239-565-5845).
-Lee Anderson, WaterLine Editor

JOSH:
I can't wait for Thursdays to get my latest
edition of WaterLine. I enjoy reading all
the articles and advertisements finding
out what is happening with boating and
fishing in the area. One thing missing is a
complete listing of ALLthe restaurants/
bar/grills accessible in the area by boat and
their locations. This would be great to have
when planning a day on the water. Keep
up the good work.
RodHiestand


ROD:
We've batted that one around but have never actually
done it, and there's a verysimple reason. Advertising
isa very large portion of our business, and listings
ofthat sort are advertisements. We could produce
a listing, but if we give free publicity to for-profit
restaurants, it lessens their incentive to buy advertis-
ing in Sun Coast Media Group publications, such as
our sister magazine Let's Go! It will also likely annoy
the owners of restaurants who are already paying for
advertising to see their non-advertising competitors
included. If I produce a listing with only those restau-
rants that are willing to pay a small advertising fee,
then you don't have a complete listing. So by printing
the list, we have to do a disservice to our advertisers
or a disservice to our readers. Since both groups are
hugely important to the success ofthe magazine,
we've chosen to not publish such a listing.
-Josh Olive, WaterLine Publisher

LEE:
Your response to Nick DeJay caught my
attention. I fish the same way Mr. DeJay
does and would like to know if I can also
get information and tricks for catching
sheepshead and pompano? Please let me
know when you have a chance. Thank you.
Dennis Sykora, North Port

DENNIS:
This is our busy time ofyear, but you will get some
basics on sheepies and pompano. They are two of
my favorite eating fish. On another note, our next
fishingseminarmay be right upyouralley. WaterLine
columnist Matt Stevens will be speaking about some
tricks to catching sheepshead and otherspecies from
shore on Feb. 27at6:30p.m. atthe Gasparilla Marina
office (15001 Placida Road). Hope to see you there!
Lee Anderson, WaterLine Editor

LEE:
I waited until this week to see if anyone else
picked up on a small error in the"Seafood or
Seafraud" story in the Jan. 30 WaterLine. Not


finding any other nit pickers, here's mine: It
was the Kansas City Star's mistake, not yours.
The writer of the reprinted piece stated, "Was
it wild salmon you ordered? Would you be
surprised and disappointed to learn that you
got coho instead?" Whoa. Coho is a salmon,
and a good one. Coho is the West Coast name
for the species. In Alaska, it's a silver salmon.
And that could have led to misunderstand-
ing. The name confusion applies to all Pacific
salmon. In Alaska the largest salmon is a
King. In the lower 48 it's a chinook. Sockeye
(probablythe tastiest of all) is the fish's name
off California, Oregon and Washington coasts.
But in Alaska it is a red salmon. And at the
bottom of the quality ladder, retailers have
come up with all sorts of names like keta and
pink for the fish known to Alaskans as dog
salmon. Guess why. Ever seen the teams that
pull sleds? Wonder what they're often fed?
Anyway, while we don't catch Pacific salmon
in Charlotte Harbor, it is such a quality fish for
size, fight and edibility- and good ferya,
too that it's important to keep the names
straight and your plate full.
Dwight Tracy, Port Charlotte

DWIGHT:
Ineed to go salmon fishing with yousomeday, orat
least meet up with you and get educated. I've
filleted my share of Alaskan king and Scottish
salmon while working at a fish distributor back in
the day, but haven't caught one -yet.

Keepin tourneys fun


Fishing tournaments.
I've competed in two of them, and they
both took place years ago back in Minnesota.
One was a walleye tournament. The other
was a bowfishing tournament targeting carp.
I can say with complete certainty that I had
more fun at the carp tournament. To me, the
difference between the two tourneys was the
competitiveness or lack thereof.
There was prize money at stake in the
walleye tourney. There wasn't in the carp
tourney. There was music and a barbecue
after the carp tourney. Nothing after the
competitive walleye event. Perhaps most
importantly, some of the money from the
carp tournament went to a local elementary
school for some basic supplies.
During the past six months or so, I've
done a lot of thinking about tournaments.
I've reflected on my own experience, and
I've asked the opinions of people about their
thoughts and feelings toward them. I did
so because Josh and I decided a while back
to host a WaterLine fishing tournament. We
wanted it to be fun, and not too
competitive. We called it the"Feed the
Hungry Trout Scramble" and it took place on
Jan. 11 at the Fishery Restaurant in Placida.
We wanted the tourney to be fun for the
entire family. That was number one to us.
Number two was to do something good
from the event. Like the carp tourney, we
had meat roasting over a grill two pigs,
to be exact. There was music, vendors and
tasty adult and children beverages. People
seemed to have had a good time. We even
raised a bunch of food and supplies for The
Salvation Army. From volunteers to local
businesses like the Fishery Restaurant and

eels and Reels --"- -
nament will be
s it should be. ,
. .Lki 1k ,L *"-


the Placida Fish Market, it all came together
for a memorable event.
But it did take a lot of time to organize
and execute. After it was over, I looked
forward to returning the focus on Water-
Line, and hopefully, some time out on the
water. That was not to be.
Almost as soon as the tournament ended,


Josh and I were contacted about helping
out with another tournament. This one
would benefit Habitat for Humanity. We sat
down, brainstormed and decided we could
once again have some fun with the tourney,
while lending a helping hand.
The tournament is called "Heels and Reels
Ladyfish Tournament" and is scheduled for


March 8 at Burnt Store Marina.
Although the tournament is for a good
cause to raise money for Charlotte
County Habitat for Humanity Women Build
project it has to be a good time. Like
the trout tournament, there will be no cash
prizes. Winners won't walk away empty-
handed, but the main point of the event is
to raise some funds while having some fun.
So what about the ladyfish that are
caught? Well, no need to waste, so they will
be donated to The Center for the Rehabilita-
tion of Wildlife on Sanibel Island.
Although it's called Heels and Reels, we
encourage men and children to participate
as well (guys can't fish, but they can serve
as captains or mates).
Getting back to those two tournaments
back in Minnesota, another reason I liked
the carp event was because it didn't start
until later the walleye was at first light,
meaning early. Our trout tournament didn't
start until later, and our ladyfish won't
either. A start time of 9 a.m. will give every-
body an extra couple hours to get their gear
together, or to sleep a little bit longer.
Of course, after everybody gets back to
Burnt Store Marina, a party will be there
waiting. We have another band, various
vendors, a big grill and adult beverages
provided by Porto Bello Restaurant.
Just like the first one, we have some good
businesses, sponsors and volunteers to help
make this another fun event. Although the
trout tourney was a blast, we did learn a
few things. Hopefully, I won't have to make
a beer keg run during this one.
What's next? Hopefully some rest and
relaxation, and some fishing.

DEAR DR. ROACH: My
mother passed away at age
81, just a short time before
Christmas. Advanced
dementia appeared to be
the culprit that led to her
demise. Her dementia
was caused primarily by
vascular insufficiency, as
both of her carotid arteries
were more than 60 percent
blocked; although
some doctors said she
could have had some
ministrokes, even though
all tests and cognitive ac-
tions showed no evidence
of a stroke.
The last week of her life,
she could not swallow, so
she had stopped eating
and drinking. She declined
very quickly after that.
Could it be possible that
the dementia caused her
to forget how to swallow?
ANSWER: I am sorry to
hear about your mother's
passing.
Vascular insufficiency,
as demonstrated by the
blockages in your mother's
carotid arteries, means
a decrease in the ability
to provide the blood
to the brain. This can
cause symptoms that
are temporary (a TIA,
transient ischemic attack)
or permanent (a stroke).
A "ministroke" doesn't
necessarily have any obvi-
ous loss of ability such as
speech or cause weakness.
However, many of these
small strokes can cause
dementia, called vascular
or multi-infarct dementia.
("Infarct" means death of
tissue.)
The brain performs
many processes that we
aren't consciously aware
of. We swallow reflex-
ively- that is, without
being consciously aware
of it, without difficulty.
A small stroke in one of
the areas in the brain that
coordinate this complex
action can prevent normal
swallowing, both the
reflexive and intentional
type. So it's not that her
cognitive, thinking brain
was so impaired, it's that
multiple parts of the brain
were affected.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I
am a 60-year-old man in
generally good health. I
recently had severe hip
pain. After a set of X-rays,
mild arthritis was found
in the hip. Tylenol was
recommended for the
inflammation. A few days
later at my annual physi-
cal, the cardiac C-reactive
protein test was 3.9, which
the written results stated
was high. My doctor's
recommendation was to
take 81 mg of aspirin daily.
What is the best anti-in-
flammatory regimen to


Dr. Roach

deal with and treat both
issues without taking too
much or creating other
problems? M.O'B.
ANSWER: "Mild arthri-
tis" isn't a diagnosis. There
are many kinds of arthritis,
and I suspect your doctor
is treating you for the most
common type in 60-year-
olds osteoarthritis.
Tylenol is a perfectly
good first-line treatment
for mild osteoarthritis;
however, it treats pain, not
inflammation.
The C-reactive protein
is a test of inflammation.
Very high levels of CRP
suggest an inflamma-
tory condition, such as
rheumatoid or psoriatic
arthritis. Chronic infection
also typically has a high
CRE In people without a
chronic condition, CRP
predicts the risk of heart
disease independently of
cholesterol. Because your
level is high, your doctor
is recommending aspirin,
which lowers the risk of
heart disease.
In the JUPITER study,
treatment with a station
drug in people with high
CRP even if they had nor-
mal cholesterol, reduced
risk of heart attacks.
The concern I have is
that, without knowing
more about your symp-
toms and X-ray findings,
I don't know whether
you may have an inflam-
matory arthritis, which
might explain both the hip
findings and the blood test
result. If you do, then it
might be necessary for you
to have other treatments
besides Tylenol. It's worth
a call to your doctor to
discuss the X-ray findings
and the high CRP, since
your CRP is much higher
than I would expect from
osteoarthritis.

Answer: Casper and his wife shopped in a -

Cooking with iron


Dear Heloise: Is it OK
to use an old cast-iron
skillet on a smooth-top
range? C.B. in Iowa
Maybe yes and maybe
no! Some glass-cooktop
manufactures say it's
OK, depending on the
skillet; others say no
altogether.
Older cast iron usually
is covered with rough
areas and bumps on
the bottom, which can
damage the glass top.
The damage (scratches)
happens when the pan
is slid across the cooktop
rather than being lifted
and moved. Older cast
iron holds heat (which
is why we love it to cook
in), which may cause the
element in the glass top
to shut off.
Newer cast iron is made
differently, and you can
find many with smooth
bottoms that are covered
in enamel. These cast-
iron skillets should be OK,
but as always, do check
with the manufacturer
to see what it suggests.
- Heloise
P.S.: I love my old, old
(mother's and grand-
mother's) cast-iron
skillets to cook with, but I
probably would not use it
on a glass cooktop, just to
be safe.

Kitten cleanup
Dear Heloise: I noticed
that my cats' hair was all
over the side of the bed
that I do not lie on. My
solution was to use a lint
roller. When I make the


Hints from Heloise

Hair help
Dear Heloise: I am a
natural brunette, but my
hair has always had a hint
of red and brassy tones. I
now use shampoos and
conditioners for silver
or blond hair. These are
purple/blue and help elim-
inate brassy/red tones. I
had several bottles of other
shampoos I had bought.
I always loved the scents,
so I started using them as
body wash. The ones with
added hair conditioner
work even better than
regular body wash, and my
skin has never been softer!
- Kathy R., via email
You are onto my
secret! I, too, use the
"purple" shampoo, but
I mix it with my regular
shampoo about 1/
purple and 2/3 regular. It
helps keep my natural
silver hair from looking
dull. I also love the
scented shampoo as a
body wash! It does the
job, and frankly is a lot
cheaper than expensive
body washes. Heloise

Woman stays quiet about breast

exam to ease her family's woes


DEAR ABBY: Earlier this
year, my sister "Kathy"
was diagnosed with breast
cancer. She underwent
a double mastectomy
chemo and radiation, and
will begin reconstructive
surgery soon.
Because of her diagnosis
she encouraged me to visit
my doctor for an exam.
When I did, they found a
lump, which needs further
testing. I have chosen not
to share this with my family
because my sisters and
parents have been deeply
affected by Kathy's diag-
nosis, and I don't want to
cause them needless worry.
My husband is angry
and he said that because
Kathy is their favorite they
wouldn't be concerned
anyway. I thought it was
insensitive and cruel to
me, but more to the point,
I felt he wasn't thinking
about how upset my doing
so might make my family.
Am I wrong to feel this
way? NEEDS FURTHER
TESTING
DEAR NEEDS FURTHER
TESTING: Certainly not.
Your husband's comment
illustrates the importance
of keeping one's mouth
firmly shut if one can't
think of something helpful
or supportive to say. It
almost appears that he
is angry at you for the
questionable test result.
I can't blame you for
not wanting to upset your
already stressed family at
this point, but if more test-
ing confirms that you, too,
have breast cancer, I think
it's important that you let
them know especially
your sisters, who might
want to be screened sooner
than later.
I hope your husband's
apparent inability to
support you emotionally
during this difficult time
is an aberration, but if it's
not, you will need to find
support elsewhere.
DEAR ABBY: About 15
years ago I committed a
crime against a woman I
cared about. I have felt guilt
and remorse about it ever
since. I can't speak to her or
have any contact with her.
I would like to tell her I'm
sorry for what happened. I


Dear Abby

have beaten myself up over
this and thought about sui-
cide. What do I do? Please
help, Abby SO SORRY IN
ST. JOSEPH, MO.
DEAR SO SORRY: The
first thing you must do is
talk with a mental health
professional about your
suicidal thoughts. Once you
have been stabilized, you
should then understand
that you may have been
forbidden to contact your
former friend because what
you did was so traumatic
that it could cause her to
relive the incident, which
could further victimize
her. If you're looking for
forgiveness, forgive yourself
and move on but leave
her out of it.
DEAR ABBY: Is there
some sort of etiquette
regarding inquiring about
someone's country of
origin?
While making polite con-
versation with a customer in
my retail shop, I noticed she
had an accent and asked
where she was from. She
became very evasive and
seemed offended that I had
asked. She actually refused
to answer my question.
I tried to recover from the
awkward situation, but I
can't help but feel I insulted
her somehow. Was I wrong
to ask? -FRIENDLY
RETAILER IN KANSAS CITY
DEAR RETAILER:
Perhaps. Some immigrants
to this country feel the
question you asked is a
very personal one. There
can be various reasons
for it. The person may feel
self-conscious about his or
her accent, and you can't
know the political situation
in the person's country of
origin or whether he or
she has encountered bias
because of where he or she
came from.

effective and miserable. Cheer up, God loves you and

Opening lead: King of 4
North-South were playing a weak
(13-15) no trump opening, which
enabled them to find their spade fit
easily not such a good thing on
this hand. North might well have bid
three no trump at his last turn nine
tricks would have been so much
easier but South set off in search
of 10 tricks in the given contract.


Declarer won the opening club
lead and cashed the ace and queen of
trumps. Next came the ace of hearts,
a heart to dummy's king, and a heart
ruff. South continued with a low club
toward the 10. West could win and
cash another club, but he then had a
choice of presenting declarer with a
ruff-sluff or breaking the diamond
suit either would allow South to
bring home his contract.
This technique, known as a "partial
elimination," usually requires some
luck to be successful. South was
lucky that West did not have the last
trump or he could have played that
card and scuttled the contract. The
location of the club queen was known
from the lead, but South was also
lucky that East could not gain the
lead with the club jack, or again, a
trump play would defeat him.
Despite the luck factor required,
South showed great imagination in
giving himself this extra chance to
make the contract!

Here's How It Works:
Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine
3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each
row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row,
column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will
appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The
more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

We have found it to be a great newspaper and our experiences with the staff and deliverers have been extra good. I notice that you are great at communicating with us so I am doing something I have never done before stating my feelings about the newspaper. I notice that your coverage of high school sports are outstanding. Great pictures and lots of words and score infor mation. Four and a half pages sometimes. I am sure your efforts are appreciated. However, I would guess that there are more retirees getting your paper than high school related people. Personally, at this time of my life I really have little interest in high school sports. I am not one to get on the Internet or desktop to nd out what is happening in sports. Television doesnt take the place of newspapers for me. I depend on my newspaper and my wife and I go to sleep at night looking forward to having our coffee and breakfast while enjoying the Charlotte Sun. I hate electronics. I love newspapers. I hope you can nd a way to give us more information on college and professional sports particularly college sports and hopefully it wont have to cut back too much on the high school sports. Thanks for listening and thanks for being a communicator. ESP I think we run more high school sports and more high school sports on the front page of sports than any paper I know of. It is not enough, ESP. I know you may nd this hard to believe, but this winter season we got chewed out by fans of high school sports because we missed covering a game. How could we not make sure their kids were in the paper and on the front page? As a guest at a local Rotary event I asked what we could do to make the paper better. The gentleman to my right suggested more Penn State sports would be helpful. There are many of our readers who feel the same as the two of you. We think the long-term solution to this challenge is to have a high school sports section twice a week that people can subscribe to plus a national sports section that people can also subscribe to separately. We are building a very sophisticated mailroom system that can create custom newspapers for each house. We should know in about a year if we can make all of our sports readers happy.Open House kudosWe had a wonderful open house and car show earlier this month. We had more than a thousand visitors and several hundred toured the newspaper facility. The music by Power Outage Continues and Jimmy Mazz was worth bringing a blanket and chairs just to enjoy the free, three-hour concert. It takes a village of volunteers to put on this event at our ofces. Thank you to just some of the volunteers, including John Aguiar, Dick Brown, Rose Coleman, Clyde Goodall, Steve Kuhn, Don Langford, Linda Langford, Robert Ozzie Osborne, Ron Phillips, Dee Ann Roberts, Wayne Roberts, Lynn Wintermeyer, Doug Wood, and Don and Lee Royston.

But this year, the Seminoles have added another special attraction sure to draw crowds to the multi-day rodeo festival: Uncle Si Robertson, Martin and Godwin of A&Es Duck Dynasty fame will be there on Saturday and Sunday. And as if that werent enough, on Friday and Saturday, Jimmy Rife of Animal Planets Gator Boys will be there for an alligator show. In between these celebrity appearances, the Seminole Tribe will showcase its culture and traditions, including authentic foods, crafts, storytelling and dancing. And there are several days of Eastern Indian Rodeo Association and Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association rodeo action, wrapping up with Xtreme Bulls on Sunday.

HOFFMANARCADIAN EDITOR PHOTO PROVIDED BY KELLEY BAKERRight: Traditional Indian Hoop Dancing will be demonstrated several times throughout the event. This year, three-time world hoopdancing champion, Dallas Arcand, will demon strate the skills and signicance of the dance.STARS | 6 The owner of an electrical contracting business in Englewood believes a shortage of skilled laborers in Southwest Florida can partially be blamed on the education system. Mike Looney, owner of Michael J. Looney Electric in Englewood is worried about what this shortage will mean to businesses. Its scary, Looney said. I dont see the youth coming in here looking for a job. Looney places some of the blame on young people, saying many dont see construction trades as a viable profession. But he also blames the education system for pushing students toward a college education regardless of their aptitude. When I was a kid, high school counselors saw which kids really didnt have the aptitude for college and they would push them toward a trade, Looney said. Charlotte County Public Schools superintendent Doug Whittaker denies teachers are pushing kids away from the trades, and instead parents are the ones steering all children toward college. Whittaker and Barney Duffy, Schools vs. trades: two edgesBy PAUL FALLONSUN CORRESPONDENTEDGES | 6SARASOTA COUNTY Synthetic drugs known as K2, Spice and Kratom are now illegal in Sarasota County after Sarasota County Commissioners unanimously adopted a ban on designer drugs Wednesday a move that mirrors an ordinance passed in Charlotte County late last year. The ordinance bans the manufacture, transport, display, sale or possession of substances many mimicking the look of marijuana outright in the county. Previously, the Florida Attorney Generals ofce banned certain chemicals used to make the drugs, but manufacturers would simply alter the chemical make-up and continue to sell the product. Now its illegal across the board. The synthetic marijuana was found to contain AB-PINACA, a chemical dubbed an illegal substance by State Attorney General Pam Bondi. Mel Thomas, a planner with the countys Health and Human Services department, said Wednesday that the American Association of Poison Control is calling synthetic drug use a Sarasota bans designer drugsBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSTAFF WRITERDRUGS | 6ENGLEWOOD A 13-year-old boy is accused of attempted rst-degree mur der after an attack in which authorities say he slashed the neck of a neighbor hood jogger with a 15-inch bread knife. The 54-year-old victim, who told authorities he had seen the suspect grow up from a toddler, was jogging along Lemon Avenue and Bayshore Drive around 5:40 p.m. Tuesday when the incident occurred, according to the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce. The victim saw the teenage boy in a red hooded sweatshirt standing on the street corner. The boy began to run behind him. When the boy caught up to the victim, he grabbed the mans left shoulder and slashed the right side of his neck, a sheriffs report stated. The victim elbowed the teen, knocking him to the ground, and then chased after him. As the teen ed, he allegedly threw a 15-inch bread knife with a serrated edge at the victim. Investigators later recovered the knife. The victim went to a neighbor, who called 911. The report stated the victim suffered a 6-inch gash that required 14 stitches. SCSO investigators said the attack was unprovoked. Deputies went to the boys home, where family members said he had left the house after an argument.

Featured EventPAID ADVERTISEMENT | CHARLOTTE | EVENTS | NORTH PORT | EVENTS PUNTA GORDA Sooner or later, sings Michael Tolcher. Well be lookin back on every thing. And well laugh about it like we knew what all was happening. I have a feeling some of us who go to Steve Fest on Sunday will be lookin back and laughing. Thats usually how it goes. Probably by Monday morning. So, did you hear? Steve Fest is back. The funky, folky little concert series kicks off another season (What is this, the sixth? Is that even possible?) Sunday afternoon at the Punta Gorda Womans Club. Local fave Still Friends will open the show. The group these days is Carrie Blackwell Hussey singing and playing mandolin; Tifny Coffey singing and playing guitar; Japhy Blackwell on saxophones; and Reed Coffey on bass, lead guitar and banjo. Sweet harmonies on top of ne folk playing. Every time I see them, they get better. Tolcher will take over from there. If youve never been to a Steve Fest, here are some things you should know about this particular concert series: You dont need to dress up fancy or anything. You dont need a lot of money its $10 to get in, or $20 if you want to treat your sweetie. You can bring a small cooler with your own beverages. Kids are welcome. Excellent face-painting usually happens. The venue may change, but it will be cool. Dancing is an option. (Although, we under stand its a certainty for local attorney and radio personality Mike Haymans.) And even though you may know nothing about the headlining act before you get there, youll most likely end up enjoying them. Youll probably want to buy one of their CDs to take home. This particular Steve Fest features Tolcher, who travels incessantly around the country, mostly towing a tiny camper. Hes a ne singer, guitar player and songwriter. You can see his Sooner or Later video on YouTube. The venue this time out is the beautiful, historic Punta Gorda Womans Club at 118 Sullivan St. Its got a little stage and a wooden oor thats great for dancing. Its also got its own chairs, so you dont need your canvas one. Another added touch for this Steve Fest is a potluck-style covered-dish soul food dinner. Now, whats cooler than that? If you want in, bring a dish to share. That will happen at about 5:30 p.m., between Still Friends and Mike Tolcher. Music, dancing, soul food you may start laughing before you even have time to look back.Singer, songwriter headlines seasons first Steve FestBy CHRIS PORTEREXECUTIVE EDITORIF YOU GOWhat: Steve Fest When: Sunday Where: Punta Gorda Womans Club, 116 Sullivan St. Schedule: 4 p.m., doors open; 4:30 p.m., Still Friends; 5:30 p.m., Soul Food Potluck; 6p.m. to 8 p.m., Michael Tolcher More info: Visit Still Friends and Steve Fest on Facebook PHOTOS PROVIDEDMichael Tolcher will headline the rst Steve Fest of the season Sunday night at the Punta Gorda Womans Club.

The Sun /Thursday, February 13, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS MURDOCK Port Charlotte Middle School nearly swept a national competition for an anti-bullying test. At a Charlotte County School Board meeting Tuesday night, Dan McIntosh, assistant principal at Port Charlotte Middle School, said sixthand seventh-grade students in the school took rst place in scores nationally, and an eighth-grade student took second place. It was that close to a winning sweep, McIntosh said. We treat (bullying) very seriously, and its something our students take seriously as evidenced by performance in this competition, he said. The competition is part of Bullying Academy, a nonprot that aims to educate students on how to identify, respond to, and report bullying. Using the program was a no-brainer, McIntosh said, because Walser Law Firm of Boca Raton offered to pay the program fee for any Florida school that wished to use it. Anybody can be a bully, big or small. One big thing a lot of them didnt realize is the online bullying thats going on, said Milisa Marcoguiseppe, a com puter science teacher at the school. When asked if it was surprising to see a middle school score so well, Mike Desjardins, director of secondary learning, said: Not really. Because weve done a really good job in Charlotte County in terms of getting on top of the issue of bullying, weve really jumped ahead of most counties in the state as far as how seriously we take the issue. The bullying education is part of a county and statewide push to make students aware of the avenues available for reporting bullying. Desjardins said every school website has a bullying reporting system, which allows students to make anonymous reports. All staff receive training on bullying pre vention and all schools implement training for students, either through the School Resource Ofcers, Bullying Academy, or both as was the case with Port Charlotte Middle School. The result of the increased bullying awareness, McIntosh said, is more accurate reporting. One thing weve noticed this year is less reported incidents of bullying, so one thing the training has done (is teach students) what is and what is not bullying. That difference, McIntosh said, was laid out in the Jeffrey Johnston Stand Up for All Students Act, a Florida statute that lays out the denition of bullying. Under the act, bullying can be physical, verbal or cyber, McIntosh said, and is dened by char acteristics as a recurring pattern of behavior and an imbalance of power between a bully and victim. What history has shown us is the severity of these cases when they go unnoticed is absolutely horrible, McIntosh said, so identifying them early is important. Once school ofcials know about a case of bullying, McIntosh said the rst step in dealing with the problem is notifying the parents of both the bully and the victim. Generally, some consequences are assigned to the bully, along with an education component to prevent the problem from happening in the future. Finally, the school and victim work out a safety plan, with strategies to avoid further bullying.Email: iross@sun-herald.comStudents win anti-bullying contestBy IAN ROSSSTAFF WRITER NORTH PORT With 42 locations in Florida, First Watch a breakfast, brunch and lunch restaurant plans to open its rst location in North Port in the summer of 2014.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, February 13, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS CHARLOTTE HARBOR A Port Charlotte man babysitting for an ex-girlfriend on Feb. 5 has been accused of slamming her 13-monthold daughter onto a bed so hard that the baby bounced onto the floor and suffered serious head injuries, according to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office. Michael Ivan Roca, 22, of the 1400 block of Kensington Street, was arrested Tuesday and is being held without bond at the Charlotte County Jail on a charge of child abuse. The babys mother said her daughter was having trouble sleeping the night of Feb. 5, wouldnt eat the next morning and threw up twice, the report shows. So she took her to Bayfront Health Port Charlotte, where a CAT scan revealed the child had a fractured skull, subdural hematoma and other indications of trauma. The Emergency Room doctor deter mined the babys injuries were so severe, the child was sent to All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg for further testing. The baby was examined and released, but her mother said she may not be in the clear. The doctors said there could be a possibility of brain damage and she may have a learning disability later on, said Amanda Amburgery, who was home Wednesday with her smiling, lively daughter. Roca was babysitting the night of the alleged incident so Amburgery could go to the Charlotte County Fair with her roommate. According to authorities, Roca initially said the baby rolled off the bed. Hes had like three different stories, said Amburgery. None of them make any sense. Roca had been babysitting the girl about four times a week for ve months, and the mother said her daughter didnt seem to have any problems early on. Shes been OK with him, but she was acting strange lately, said Amburgery. About a month ago, Amburgerys child became afraid of (Roca), according to investigators, and the baby would scream and cry anytime she was around (Roca). A doctor specializing in child abuse patients at All Childrens deter mined the injuries (the victim) sustained were a result of some type of blunt-force trauma to the back of the head, and it was highly unlike ly caused by her rolling off the bed or by being dropped, according to the report. Authorities believe Roca was upset because the child was crying too much. A Department of Children and Families investigator referred the case to the Sheriffs Ofce after learning of the childs injuries at the hospital in Port Charlotte. Sadly, cases like this one happen far too often, said DCF spokeswoman Natalie Harrell. When someone lets anger get out of control, one hard hit or shake can seriously injure a small child. DCF is working closely with local law enforcement on the investigation into this childs injuries. Rocas arraignment is set for March 24 at the Charlotte County Justice Center.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comReport: Man severely injures babyBy ADAM KREGERBY STAFF WRITER ROCA | COMMUNITY | NEWS BRIEFSYMCA VPK Academy Parents Night OutParents Night Out will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday at the North Port YMCA VPK Academy.

Once a month, the group gets together at the Port Charlotte Moose Lodge Tiki Bar. Members dress in their parrot-themed clothing, listen and dance to a featured trop-rock musician, enjoy a cheeseburger in paradise or another meal, and beverages. Sounds like fun, right? Yes, it is. But theres another reason they do it. As a division of Parrot Heads in Paradise, they form a nonprot group that is char itable and educational, and promotes the general welfare of the community. It also provides a variety of social activities for people who are interested in the music and writings of Jimmy Buffet and other trop-rock musicians, and the tropical lifestyle they personify in their music. Parrot Head groups started with one club in Atlanta, and have grown to over 200 clubs around the United States, and international clubs based in Canada and Australia. Charlotte Harbor Parrot Head Club, which was started in August of 2007 by current board member Tracy Lehn, is currently the second-largest club in the world, with nearly 600 members. Each get-together has a theme designed to help a group or charitable organization in our area. Fundraising efforts include 50/50 drawings, nancial and special gift item donation opportunities for members and local businesses. According to Jerry York, the clubs president, its recent events have raised funds for the Peace River Wildlife Center, St. Vincent De Paul Society, Arts & Humanities Council of Charlotte County, Solve Maternity Homes, Sun Coast Humane Society, Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, Ya Ya Girls Back Pack Kidz program, Douglas T. Jacobson State Veterans Nursing Home, 810th Military Police Readiness Group, Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch, Toys for Tots, Marine Corps League, as well as the Oklahoma City Parrot Head Club.

Our Town Page 6 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, February 13, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE GULF COVE If the members of the Property Owners Association of Gulf Cove had carried paintball guns Tuesday, Mike Koenig and Jim Senseman would have looked like a Jackson Pollock abstract painting. More than 200 residents attended the associations meeting Tuesday, when Koenig, a Charlotte County parks and recreation resource coordinator, and Senseman, owner of Allstar Paintball, broached the idea of Senseman staging paintball competitions and activities in the countys undeveloped Myakka River Park, located at Gallagher Boulevard and Spire Street in Gulf Cove. Koenig and Senseman explained how the paintball games would only use less than 40 acres of the 132-acre park property and be held on the weekends between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Senseman would sign monthly leases with the county and pay the county $190 a month for the use of the property. Senseman would be only one of the private vendors with whom the county now works. Koenig said: The county commissioners decided they wanted to adopt a position of being open for business. One of the things we were told as employees was that we were not to automatically say no when someone came to us with an idea. Senseman explained how the marble-size paintballs made of a gelatin substance and food coloring were not toxic and wouldnt harm wildlife. His customers are parents staging birthday parties for their children, churches and other groups. An average of 10 to 40 people participate in any one event, he said. Youre talking about families with good kids, he said. And we will put a good, watchful eye on the property. But the residents wanted no part of paintball in Gulf Cove. Jayson Burtch, an association board member, appeared the most sympathetic to Senseman, saying he and his family had played paintball games. But Burtch also said paintball activities were not suited for Gulf Cove. Others echoed the sentiment, Why Gulf Cove? Koenig explained county staff reviewed other properties that proved unsuited for paintball activities for a variety of reasons. He was specically asked if Murdock Village was considered. We were told (Murdock Village) was not an option, Koenig said. But I want you to know we did look at it. That could change. Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch attended the meeting and said, It seems to me that (paintball) doesnt belong here, and I will work with you all to try to make it happen in Murdock Village. However, Deutsch did suggest he is only one of ve commissioners to make that decision. He also asked the residents to recognize Koenig was just doing his job.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comGulf Cove shoots down paintball gamesBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER risk to the public health and a hazard to public safety. Reports of the drugs rst surfaced in the United States in 2008. Thomas said a recent survey showed that 21.7 percent of Sarasota Countys high school students in the county have used synthetic marijuana, a gure that shows the accessibility to the drugs. Thats compared to 13 percent statewide. According to the Sarasota County Community Alliances Behavioral Health Stakeholders Consortium 2013 K2/Spice Survey, 19.3 percent of 14to 18-year-olds surveyed have tried K2/Spice. Theres no redeeming benets to this type of stuff and theres no arguments being made that this somehow provides medical benets, Commission Chairman Charles Hines said of the designer drugs. Im kind of disgusted that our local stores would sell this to our kids and promote it the way theyve done. Its sad that we have to have a law like this. Part of Wednesdays discussion focused on a newer synthetic drug called Kratom, a natural, herbal psychotropic stimulant and opioid substitute. Thomas said Kratom is highly addictive, with symptoms ranging from dry mouth to hallucinations. It has been banned in the U.S. Army and Navy. It is found in many of the same places that sell synthetic marijuana. Cathinones more commonly referred to as bath salts, which are from an emerging family of drugs containing an amphetamine-like stimulant with effects similar to methamphetamines, ecstasy or cocaine are also banned under the ordinance. The Sheriffs Ofce will enforce the ordinance, which typically will involve a ne and be punishable as a second-degree misdemeanor if the ofcer deems the offense to be criminal. Businesses who sell the drugs will be ned $250 per packet, and could risk losing its certicate of occupancy. Private citizens can also enforce the ordinance as a private attorney general while they report violations to authorities. Sarasota County Commissioner Christine Robinson said she wished the county wasnt put in the position to create a designer drug ordinance, calling it a shame. Commissioner Nora Patterson said it is something that has to be done while Commissioner Carolyn Mason, who represents the commission on the countys Juvenile Justice Council, said she was ecstatic about the ordinance. Mason said that shes heard several negative things about the designer drugs from the Safe and Drug Free Schools Committee. This is a terrible problem and weve got to do something about it, Robinson said. The state is struggling and this is something that weve got to get in front of. I think this is a good step for our community, but Im concerned that we still have folks out there who are trying to market this to our youth.Email: slockwood@sun-herald.comDRUGSFROM PAGE 1DESIGNER DRUGS IN THE NEWS Prior to Sarasota Countys passing of an ordinance that bans designer drugs in the county, authorities had already been cracking down on use of the synthetic drugs in the area. In January, North Port Police seized nearly 700 pounds of synthetic marijuana with a street value estimated at $2.2 million from the home of North Port Chevron gas station manager Sayed Mohammed Jan. Jan, 33, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, sale or manufacture of a controlled substance, sale or manufacture of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a church, and renting a structure to manufacture, sell or traffic drugs. He is also being investigated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which could lead to deportation. Earlier this week, 42-year-old Venice resident Alton Michael Haynes was arrested for reportedly manufacturing synthetic marijuana from his business, Maximum Overdrive, LLC, according to a Sarasota County Sheriffs Office report. Haynes was charged with two counts of posses sion of a controlled substance with intent to sell (synthetic marijuana), and sale of a controlled substance. Last October, police say a Cape Coral man, Christopher Rounds, 25, had been drinking and smoking K2 prior to physically abusing a 6-month-old and spraying the infant with Windex in Sarasota, according to a sheriffs report. Compiled by Scott Lockwood director of Charlotte Technical Center, both believe parents are steering children away from the trades because the construction industry lost so many jobs during the recession. Construction is picking up, and skilled workers are desperately needed, Duffy said. Therefore, he is expanding a carpentry class into one that teaches a wide range of construction skills. He is also advertising an evening electrical class. Duffy had hoped the class could begin in the coming days, but the interest wasnt there, he said. He hopes to get more students signed up for the course and to start it soon. In a perfect world, we would have 12 to 15 students in this class, but we can start it with half a dozen, he said. Currently there are only two people enrolled in the course, which will cost about $900, he said. The School Board is working with the Charlotte-DeSoto Building Industry Association to address the lack of workers, said Suzanne Graham, chairwoman of the organizations Governmental Affairs Committee. Graham was unsure whether the schools were to blame for the shortage in skilled workers, adding that it was likely caused by parents encouraging children to stay away from the trades. Building Industry Association Executive Ofcer Donna Barrett said the organization is working closely with the technical center to start an apprentice program in the area. The technical center is a great asset in the county, and we have a very positive relationship with them, she said. North Port building ofcial Bryan Holland has also noticed a sharp decline in skilled construction workers. Like Looney, Holland believes this is because school ofcials discourage students from going into the trades. County vocational programs are allocated a large chunk of funding based on how many children attend the classes, and fewer students means less money, Whittaker said. Funds to technical centers are not being cut because of the recent recession or to put funding in college preparation classes. Longtime Charlotte County School Board member Lee Swift believes Hollands statement that schools pushing kids away from the trades is unfair. He added that Whittaker stressed the importance of technical education during a state-of-theeducation-system speech. Swift went on to say that some of the vocational programs that did not see the severe downturn during the recession, such as the culinary and auto mechanic classes, continue to thrive.EDGESFROM PAGE 1again around the same time the family noticed deputies in the neighbor hood and a helicopter overhead. According to the report, deputies also learned from the suspects brother that he liked to play with knives and had several stashed in the area. The family also recognized the knife as one that had been in a kitchen drawer. The teen did not return home again while deputies searched the neighborhood. According to the report, SCSO investigators traced a call the mother received at 10:25 a.m. Wednesday and determined the call was made from Big Lots in the Lemon Bay Plaza. The deputies apprehended the teen at the shopping center Wednesday, and described him as dirty, disheveled and covered in insect bites and scratches. The report stated the boy appeared to have spent the night in nearby woods. The suspect, who is a Venice Middle School student, remained in custody Wednesday. As of now, he has been turned over to the Juvenile Assessment Center at the Sarasota County Jail, SCSO spokeswoman Wendy Rose said Wednesday. He is being held without bond. First appearance for juveniles is typically in the morning. Everything else is pending at this time.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comATTACKFROM PAGE 1Seminole Reservation who wanted to create a Day of Fun involving competitive games and recreational events, said Amos Tiger, one of the key organizers of this years event. Seminole communities came from all over to take part at the Brighton Seminole Indian Reservation. Over the years it has evolved to include much more than just competitive games. On Saturday, a parade opens the days events, led by Osceola and Renegade, the famed mascots of the Florida State University Seminoles. There are traditional rodeo events, including bronc and bull riding. Seminole alligator wrestling and snake handling lend a different form of excitement and danger to entertain spectators, while traditional hoop dancing illustrates tribal culture. Dallas Arcand, three-time world champion hoop dancer, will perform Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Well known artist Robert Butler, one of the original Highwaymen, will take part in the event. The Highwaymen, a group of itinerant self-taught black artists, began selling their work in the 1960s, but it was not until later that their paintings rose in value and became collectible. Butler lived in Okeechobee and the lake appears in many of his works. The multi-day event takes place at Fred Smith Rodeo Arena on the Brighton Seminole Reservation, 500 Harney Pond Road, Okeechobee. Ticket prices range from $15 to $25.

Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is determined by the court system. NORTH PORT A local preschool teacher quit her job Dec. 31, amid allegations that she had battered a 3-year-old special-needs student at Glenallen Elementary School, where she had worked. North Port Police did not le criminal charges against Thea M. AnthonyHedderick, 60, citing a lack of evidence, a report states, but the long-tenured teacher decided to resign anyway on Dec. 31, 2013. The report states the incident allegedly took place Nov. 13, when AnthonyHedderick grabbed the young boy by the arm and pulled his hair in an effort to punish him. Two North Port High School students, who regularly worked at Glenallen as student teachers, witnessed the event, the report states. One of the North Port students told investigators the boy cannot really talk, and that AnthonyHedderick had placed the child on her lap, crossed her legs over him so he could not move and pulled his hair. When interviewed by authorities Dec. 20, Anthony-Hedderick denied being physical with the child, the report states. She specically denied pulling the boys hair, but added that the boy has issues with hygiene and she had to remove a tick from his head on the day of the alleged incident. The report states she told investigators there were times when she yelled at the boy, but not in a hurtful manner. Instead, she yelled only to get his attention and did so sparingly, the report adds. Anthony-Hedderick was placed on leave by the Sarasota County School District while the investigation unfolded, but she removed herself from the equation on New Years Eve when she resigned. According to district spokesman Scott Ferguson, AnthonyHedderick was hired Feb. 16, 1981, and worked as an Exceptional Student Education teacher and liaison at Venice and Glenallen elementary schools during her career. Her annual salary prior to her resignation was $75,069, according to Ferguson.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comPreschool teacher resigned after battery allegationsBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER F i n d i t F i n d i t Find it i n t h e i n t h e in th e C l a s s i f i e d s C l a s s i f i e d s Classifieds Fundraiser to benefit childrens organizationsBeyond Ourselves, the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Associations Community Service Club, will play host to the fourth annual charity Share the Love for the Kids Home Tour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
