Bringing a lot


to the table
hen Maralee McGowenrs Havanese
pup, Gracie, gave birth and later
needed to be supervised through
nursing, Maralee was up all night with her.
Then she'd go open
/ t two businesses every
Sday- her original
/ market, Harbor Seafood
', ., Meats & More in Port
Charlotte, and Tortuga's
Seafood Restaurant in
\ Punta Gorda.
N Two years later, that
L kind of multitasking
remains Maralee's
SSue middle name.
With a marketing
WADE background, but zero
COLUMNIST restaurant experience,
Maralee had never even
waited tables when she opened her eatery.
"When I opened here, I knew I couldn't do
it all. It was important to have the very best
people." So, Tortuga's is a living organism
that she's built out of a dozen top local
restaurant staffers.
This list of the best starts with Maralee's
partner, Tony Millan, who manages the sup-
ply side as handily as when, all by himself,
he ran thousands of pounds offish in an ice
truck between the Panhandle and Atlanta
restaurants. He ended up at The Fishery in
Placida after Hurricane Opal leveled his own
Panama City Beach restaurant.
"We went into business together when the
relationship was still new. We signed the lease
for the fish market onValentine's Day! I know,
right? But we always try to remember that
our relationship is greater than our business."
Her first restaurant hire, server Misty
Griffith, had been working at Port
Charlotte's The Cap'n and the Cowboy. Misty
was the one who'd reached out to get that
now-defunct local favorite on Robert Irvine's
"Restaurant Impossible."
At that point, says Maralee, "I already
needed a new chef. Misty told me, 'The guy
I used to work for is looking for something
to do.'"
Enter Nick Scaringella, former chef/owner
of Cap'n.
If you ask Nickwhat itwas like to be on
a Food Network reality show, this man of
few words won't miss a beat while stirring
something or other.
What was it like? "Cool."
What was Irvine like? "Nice."
What's your favorite thing to do?
"Cooking."
Adds
IF YOU GO Maralee, "I'm
in awe of

More info: 941-833-3474 use, the fryer
zinging. It's like
an orchestra that builds and builds. Doing
what Nick did, being a chef/owner, is a lot
harder than what I do."
They both remember: "It was crazy the
minute we opened the door. I did the first
menu and I was like, I'm done. But at dinner,
we were literally looking in the fridge and
typing a menu of what we had left from
lunch. People were sitting in the dining room
waiting for the menus to be printed. We have
grouper... OK... we're gonna have grouper!
"Then we decided to put steak on the
menu one night. It dawned on us the very
moment the first steak was going out that
we didn't have steak knives. I personally
delivered the plate and said, 'I want you to
know that the first thing on my list of things
to buy is steak knives.'
"We plan better now."
Locals from North Port to Punta Gorda
and Port Charlotte, "customers respect fresh
fish, but what keeps them coming back
is attentive service. We're not a big box-
everybody here knows your name."

Recycling renaissance


New carts lead to increased volume


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER
CHARLOTTE COUNTY-The con-
venience of using the new recycling
carts is a big hit with homeowners,
helping to boost the volume of recy-
cled materials by at least 50 percent,
according to Charlotte County's trash
hauler.
In December 2013, 1,802 tons of
recyclables was produced by resi-
dents, a whopping 59 percent increase
from the same period a year ago.
And the volume of recycled materials


last month continued the environ-
ment-friendly trend, posting another
50 percent hike from January 2013.
"When you make it easier and give
residents more capacity, they recycle
more," said Cyndee Woolley, Waste
Management spokeswoman.
The yellow-lidded carts, provided
at no cost to 84,000 households in
November, hold several advantages
over the smaller, 18-gallon bins pre-
viously in use, she said. The 64-gallon
rolling carts are less difficult to move
and they hold more, she said, allowing
residents to recycle larger, heavier


items such as glass jars, bottles and
newspapers.
"We see a lot more of that material
when it's easier to get it out on the
road," she said.
Adding to the renaissance in
recycling, Woolley explained, was
the educational outreach program
rolled out prior to the recycling carts.
Through the county website and
media outlets, Waste Management
and Charlotte County teamed up to
prepare homeowners for the new

'Let Me Call You Sweetheart'


By AL HEMINGWAY
SUN CORRESPONDENT
PORT CHARLOTTE Leon Bisson
tried everything he could to divert his
wife's attention away from the front of
their house Wednesday.
No matter what he did, however, he
could not stop Martha Bisson from
spotting that van pull in her driveway.
When the passengers stepped out,
dressed in their red-and-white-striped
vests and sporting large red bow ties,
she knew she was in for something
special a singing Valentine's Day


card provided by the Suncoast
Statesmen.
"I am so surprised," Martha Bisson
said. "I was doing a puzzle on the lanai
and wanted to walk out in front but he
kept saying, 'Let's go in the backyard.'"
While waiting for another member
of the group to show up, Leon Bisson,
who is also a member of the Suncoast
Statesmen, joined Herb Lichty, Bud
Gault, Lee Reser and Gary Branch to
sing "MyWild Irish Rose" to his wife of
46 years.
"He (Leon) just had surgery on his
eyelids," she said. "They are still puffy.


But it doesn't affect his voice."
When the group went in the house,
the members presented Martha with a
single red rose, a Valentine's Day card,
sat her in a chair, and sang, "Let Me
Call You Sweetheart" and "Heart of
My Heart." Then accompanied by the
quartet, Leon Bisson performed "Every
Day of My Life," for his wife.
When he finished, she gave him a
big hug and kiss, saying, "Oh, thank
you, honey."
Branch said the organization has
about 40 members and is attempting

Slashing victim: A 'second' saved my life


By CLINTON BURTON
STAFF WRITER
ENGLEWOOD-
Jogging along the same dirt
path he's run for 20 years,
Michael Baskind didn't
give a second thought to
the teenage boy in the red
hoodie standing alongside
the trail Tuesday night.
"I've seen him for years.
I've seen him grow up. I
said, 'Hi," and kept going,"
he said.
About a tenth of a mile
farther down the trail,
along Lemon Avenue and
Bayshore Drive, around
5:40 p.m., Baskind said, he
heard something behind
him.
"My head swung around


and I saw him running
up behind me. I thought,
'That's weird,'" he said.
Within an instant,
Baskind felt a hand on his
left shoulder and he started
to turn around.
"Then I feel something
across my neck, and at that
point, I knew what he was
doing, and he had some
kind of a knife," he said.
According to the Sarasota
County Sheriffs Office, the
alleged assailant, a 13-year-
oldVenice Middle School
student, left his house on
Sixth Street earlier that
evening after an argument
and had come back,
changed his clothes and left
again. The teen's brother
reportedly told deputies the


suspect liked to play with
knives and had stashed
several in the area. Missing
from a kitchen drawer in
the home was the 15-inch
bread knife with a serrated
edge that he allegedly used
to attack Baskind.
Feeling the blade on
his neck, Baskind said
he turned quickly and
knocked his assailant to the
ground, but the boy got up
and continued to menace
him with the knife.
"I realized what had just
happened, that he had just
tried to kill me, and I lunged
at him and he ran off,"
Baskind said. "I felt blood
running down my neck, but
I realized he's missed all the
big vessels and thought I'd


just walk home."
Soon after, as he felt
blood running down his
back, he rethought that
decision and found a house
with someone home who
could call 911. Within
minutes, deputies were
combing the area, as a
helicopter searched from
above.
Deputies found the
knife, but the search for
the teen continued until
Wednesday morning, when
SCSO deputies traced a call
the boy's mother received
to the Big Lots store 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.
He was arrested,
charged with attempted
murder, and turned over
to the Manatee Juvenile
Detention Center, where
he will remain, at least
until prosecutors decide
whether he should be
tried as an adult.
As for Baskind? The
6-inch wound on his
neck and shoulder
required 14 stitches, but
he counts himself as
fortunate.
"I got lucky ... If he
had known what he was
doing. If he hadn't put


his hand on my shoulder
first, I would be dead. If
I hadn't turned around
quickly, it had only been
a second more, I wouldn't
be hanging out with my
kids right now," he said
from his home Thursday
afternoon. "If he had
practiced a little bit...
Baskind is grateful he
was the one who was at-
tacked instead of a child
or an elderly person,
and he's not holding a
grudge.
"I've forgiven him, but I
want this kid off the streets.
I doubt that he'll do much
time, but I hope he does get
help, or he'll be a menace
to society," he said.

Man gets 15 years for

stabbing woman in face


ByADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
PUNTA GORDA- A
man who tried to kill a
woman by stabbing her
multiple
times in
the face is
heading to
Prison.
Michael
Ray See, 20,
has been
SEE sentenced
to 15 years
in prison followed by
15 years probation for
attempted murder after
accepting a plea deal
Wednesday afternoon.
See pleaded no-contest
to attempted second-de-
gree murder and was
convicted by 20th Circuit
Judge George Richards
at the Charlotte County
Justice Center. See also was
ordered to pay about $900
in court fees and fines.
"We worked with
the victim," said State
Attorney's Office spokes-
woman Samantha Syoen.
"Though she did agree to
testify, she preferred not
to have to go through the
ordeal. She was in agree-
ment with (See's penalty)."
The 23-year-old woman
had been staying with
See at a mobile home in
south Punta Gorda. On
Jan. 27, 2013, See beat and


stabbed the woman in the
face, neck and eye. The
victim told authorities the
attack occurred because
See didn't like that the
toilet paper she bought
was from Walmart.
A witness told the
Sun the scene was
"unsettling."
The victim was able to
escape to a neighbor's
home around 7 p.m.
She was rushed to Lee
Memorial Hospital
Trauma Center for
surgery.
See fled, but he was
captured by authori-
ties after a nine-hour
manhunt.
He had been held in
the Charlotte County Jail
without bond following
his arrest.
The jury in the Henry
Holbrook trial brought
back a guilty verdict
Thursday evening after
deliberating for about
four hours. The 56-year-
old Port Charlotte man
was accused of attempted
murder of a law enforce-
ment officer for allegedly
firing multiple shots from
his revolver at Charlotte
County Sheriff's Office
Deputy Sean Franko
outside a local Bingo
Hall in 2011. He will be
sentenced at a later date.

Center's shops seeking donations


any people in
our community
have heard of the
Cultural Center of Char-
lotte County, but few could
tell you all that the Cultural
Center offers to enrich our
local area.
Did you know it's a non-
profit that receives no op-
erational funding from the
government? I bet most
of you don't know that it
has classes at the Learning
Place, scrumptious food
at the Midtown Caf6, a
theater, a fitness salon, a
wood shop, retail shops
and too many events and
activities to even begin to
list. It certainly is not your
average Cultural Center,
and it caters to those of all
ages. It really is a hidden
gem.
One area of the Cultural
Center that is crucial to
its success is the retail
shops. The revenue from
the shops helps fund

One way you can help your

The Cultural Center
will always gratefully
accept your clean, new
or gently used donations.
Boxed items are especially
appreciated as our Spring
Bazaar will be here before
we know it. Please realize
that we are not only selling
items to fund the center,
but we are providing peo-

I OUR VIEW

Public can give

opinion on best

use of tax funds

OUR POSITION: Kudos to
Punta Gorda and Charlotte
County for reaching out to the
public to gauge how to spend
money raised from a possible
extension of the penny sales tax.
p nta Gorda and Charlotte
County officials want to
present the best possible
case to voters they are counting
on to pass an extension of the
penny sales tax in November.
The tax, which will sunset on
Dec. 31 after six years unless
voters approve a ballot referen-
dum to extend it, has been used
to complete a long list of infra-
structure and other projects in
the city and the county without
raising property taxes. The
penny sales tax has been popu-
lar because visitors to Charlotte
County are huge contributors.
The two government entities
are making sure citizens are
included in the process by
scheduling public meetings to
get input on what projects they
would like to see funded.
Punta Gorda has completed
two such "town hall" meetings
and the City Council will get a
look next week at the list of ideas
citizens favor.
The long list drawn up from
those two town hall meetings
included, among other things:
Road work such as
Americans with Disabilities
Act improvements related to
road resurfacing; Burnt Store
Road berm along Burnt Store
Meadows and bike paths along
several roads including Marion
Avenue.
Developing the City
Marketplace property into a
park.
An amphitheater behind the
Event Center.
A library expansion.
Sidewalks along Acline Road.
A dog park in South Punta
Gorda.
Those are just a sample of the
ideas people came up with in
Punta Gorda.
Charlotte County, meanwhile,
held a public sales tax forum
Thursday at the administration
center in Murdock. Several oth-
ers are to follow. (Sun Editorial
Page Editor Brian Gleason is
the facilitator of the county's
Sales Tax Study Group, which
will rank proposed projects and
make recommendations to the
commission.)
The county has a sophisticated
program in place to judge which
potential projects are actually
the best. The idea is to award
points to projects based on
criteria such as:
Will the project impact public
health and safety?
Will the project meet a
community obligation to serve
a special need segment of the
county's population, such as
low-income, aged or minorities?
Is the project just too costly
- eating up a disproportionate
amount of the funding raised?
Is there absolutely no other
avenue available to fund the
project?
Will the project improve
the quality of life in Charlotte
County?
Is the project state or federal-
ly mandated?
There is a longer list of criteria,
but the goal is obvious. The
county hopes, with input from
citizens, to put together a list of
projects that will make people's
lives better while adhering to
good economic practices that
give us all the biggest bang for
the buck.
Both Punta Gorda and the
county have benefited from past
sales tax money to complete
infrastructure projects that
might have otherwise sat on the
shelf without funding.
We like how the city and
county are taking a proactive
approach to the sales tax
issue well before the November


referendum.
It's not too late to share your
ideas.

LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Rooney's piece
is propaganda

Editor:
I have just completed
reviewing Rep. Rooney's latest
propaganda piece against
the Affordable Care Act and
must respond to this highly
inaccurate and distorted piece
of franked mail.
The distortions begin on the
first page where he blames
the Affordable Care Act for
canceled health insurance
policies. The ACA had nothing
to do with these cancellations
as the law neither calls for nor
demanded cancellation. This
was a blatant act carried out
by the insurers to "set their
launch of compliant policies,"
in other words to blame the
administration. This act had a
whole lot to do about politics
but it also had much more to
do about money.
The congressman says
repealing the Affordable Care
Act will solve the problems of
health care because then those
who canceled your policy get
to return to their positions and
policy programs of the past
including denying coverage
for any pre-existing condi-
tions and charging women
more than men for coverage.
Returning to those days does
not make sense to me.
Do not expect this con-
gressman to work on creation
of jobs or education access,
because he is too busy fighting
the ACA. He is too busy to deal
with the minimum wage. The
congressman is in it for one
reason: to destroy the ACA.
Maybe we should tell this
congressman to look forward
to filing for unemployment
insurance in January 2015,
because his own online poll
contradicted the results he
touts in the first sentence.

Citrus is vital
to state economy

Editor:
The letter criticizing Rep.
Rooney for his support of
the Florida citrus industry
demonstrated a lack of knowl-
edge about the state, Florida
agricultural production and
Florida farmers. Yes, Florida
citrus is a $9 billion industry.
This figure isn't grown profits,
rather the amount generated
within Florida's economy.


Growing citrus is a business,
and like all businesses, grow-
ers desire to make a profit,
yet profit is not assured.
Agriculture is at the mercy
of uncontrollable factors,
weather, pests and disease.
Historically, we have found
a way to cope with the pests
and diseases brought into the
state by our robust tourist and
cargo industries. To date, we
have no cure or way to live
with greening. Families are
leaving the industry as profits
are exhausted and savings
dwindle.
The industry self-taxes for
research. Nearly $100 mil-
lion has been raised for
greening research, but at
a cost. Marketing has also
been gutted and diverted to
research, creating declining
orange juice sales. Meanwhile,
area jobs are disappearing.
Support services, such as
product and equipment sales,
are down, making downsizing
the norm. Jobs like mine are
being lost and more are in
peril without help to find an
answer.
Citrus has been in Florida
for 500 years. I encourage all
Floridians, new or natives, to
learn more about the Florida
citrus industry through the
University of Florida IFAS.

Management failing
at NP City Hall

Editor:
In September 2013,1 wrote
the city commissioners
alerting them to the disrepair
of the city-owned billboard
face. This billboard face is
located at mile post 178 on
1-75. It is located on the west
side of 1-75 and is visible from
the northbound lane. This
board was donated by the
developer to allow the city to
promote the city for economic
development.
In the private market, board
face is worth approximately
$250-$500 per month or
$3,000-$6,000 per year. This
amount of money illustrates
that the board is a valuable
city asset. It was used five
years ago to help the police
department in an investiga-
tion concerning a North Port
youth. Since then it has not
been used. It could be used to
congratulate our graduating
seniors.
On Feb. 7, 2013,1 noticed
nothing has been done and
the board remains a disgrace.
This was a surprise to me
because the city manager


was alerted to this issue last
year (five months ago and
counting).
This is an example of how
much the City Commission
cares for city assets or com-
mission's inability to manage
the city manager, or both. In
either case, each commis-
sioner or as a group should be
ashamed.
If by some good fortune, the
billboard is maintained before
this letter is published, then
everyone should be aware
that it took our city too long to
complete a simple job, which
is a management failing.

Dr. Ervin
will be missed

Editor:
I agree with the lady who
wrote about Dr. Tom Ervin
no longer being at the Cancer
Center in Englewood.
He is so understanding and
kind and for an "old lady" like
me who will soon be 85 and
totally alone, well, it is hard to
make changes.
He knew of my life and
being alone and every so
often I would get a sweet hug.
That means a lot to someone
alone. Also, he has this sweet
dog who always came into the
exam room first to say hello.
She would come right over
to say "hi." My, but he will be
missed by all of his patients.
I am lucky to have Dr.
Gooding as my primary
doctor and Dr. Featherhoff as
my eye doctor. If they left, I
would be totally lost.
Dr. Ervin will be greatly
missed.

Thanks to all
from the Shriners

Editor:


The members of the
North Port Shrine Club, and
on behalf of Sahib Shrine
Center Sarasota and Shriners
International, wish to thank
the citizens of the North Port
area who again have made
our "Hospital Days" solicita-
tion endeavors so successful.
Our thanks also to the area
Publix markets and Abbe's
Donuts, who made space
available for us.
An extra-special Shriners
thank you to the young lad
who emptied coins from his
pocket into our volunteers'
Fez canister. His mother


explained that it was his
"tooth fairy" money. How
admirable is that! His do-
nation along with all others
will greatly help us with our
charity, the Shriners Hospitals
for Children. Many area
children are currently being
treated at the Tampa facility
with transportation provided
by Shrine drivers at no cost to
the families.
Again, we extend our heart-
felt gratitude to our North
Port friends and neighbors
for your generosity and kind
words. It truly makes our day.
Well-done, North Port!

Stop quibbling,
get WMS open

Editor:
If Warm Mineral Springs is
important to North Port, why
do we complicate things with
legalese, considering that it
draws people from all over the
world to North Port. People
rent living space, frequent
restaurants, make purchases
and tell friends and family
how much they enjoy this
area; and some also visit, or
move here. Win! Win!
It is unrealistic to expect
someone to invest time and
money to manage WMS for
four months, with no guaran-
tee to continue after that time.
It would save time and money
to find a qualified company
to run it long-term, and get it
done once and for all.
It would be great ifWMS
was a city or state park. We
would pay a fair fee to enter,
use the spa, restaurants, and
vendor areas; but not be
overcharged.
"Bob Newhart," years ago,
had a funny program, where
Bob thought they needed a
stop sign in his small town.
He was used to the "big
city," where you had to jump
through legal hoops to get
anything done. So he gathered
his proof, went to the city hall
meeting and presented his
facts. Instead of making a ma-
jor case out of it, the person in
charge said, "Is it needed? Yes.
Do we have the money? Yes.
OK, let's do it." Gavel down. It
was done.
People want to use WMS.
Is it needed? Yes. Is it doable?
Yes. So quit complicating
things and get it done.

Doesn't want
same pay for all

Editor:
It never seems to amaze me,
some people like to change
things to suit their needs. Try
the latest rant from one of the
illustrious conservatives.
Everybody gets the same pay
as all others? This is not what
the left wants, even if the right
would try and have you believe
they do. Here is what I believe.
If you are the president,
you get $400,000 yearly. If you
are a congressman, you get
$174,000. If you are a woman
and you are not the president,
you don't get $400,000. That
is not equal pay for the same
work.
If you play tennis and win
a tournament, you get the
winner's pay. If you come in
second, you get less.
I hope this is understood by
the majority of you folks.
When you work as a waiter,
you get what all waiters get
at the same place, you don't
get $400,000, like the pres-
ident, nor due I think you
should and neither do most
from the left.

Obama's French affair


he French news-
paper Le Figaro
reported this week
that The Washington Post
was about to break the
shocking news that Presi-
dent Obama is having an
affair with Beyonce.
The Post has denied
the report, but now I can
exclusively reveal that
the president is indeed
involved in a tryst only
not with Beyonce. Obama
is having a love affair with
France.
The commander in
chief pulled out all the
stops for French President
Francois Hollande's
visit: state dinner; trip to
Monticello; mentions of
Lafayette, L'Enfant, de
Tocqueville, the Statue of
Liberty, D-Day and the
French Quarter in New
Orleans; as well as mushy
talk about our "oldest
ally" and the "incredible
bond" with France. He
gushed about happy times
at Camp David and in
Chicago with "Francois,"
so much so that a French
reporter (from Figaro!)


asked Obama if his eye
had wandered from the
"special relationship" with
France's rival.
"You have praised
France very warmly today
and granted our president
the first state visit of
your second term," she
observed at a midday news
conference Tuesday. "Does
that mean that France has
become the best European
ally of the U.S. and has
replaced Great Britain?"
"Oh, goodness," replied
Obama, caught in flagran-
te delicto. He asserted
that his attraction to
France was platonic, even
paternal.
"I have two daughters,"
he said, "and they are both
gorgeous and wonderful,


and I would never choose
between them. And that's
how I feel about my
outstanding European
partners."
The French will proba-
bly be tolerant of Obama's
multiple partners. The
French public has not
been shaken by news
that Hollande's longtime
partner recently left him
after reports of his affair
with an actress. (Neither
woman accompanied him
on the trip.)
Obama's dalliance
with the French is a
predictable response to
domestic troubles. With
his agenda stalled on
Capitol Hill, he is following
the oft-traveled path of
emphasizing foreign affairs
in his second term. Even
overseas, there aren't many
friendly options: Relations
are tense with China and
sour with Russia, Syria
is a nightmare, Iraq is a
mess, and there are but
flickers of hope in Iran
and elsewhere in the
Middle East. The National
Security Agency spying


controversy has hurt ties
with Germany and caused
Brazil's president to cancel
her state visit.
But, vive la France!
Eighty-three percent of
the French have confi-
dence in Obama, accord-
ing to a Pew Research
Center poll last year. That
makes Obama consid-
erably more popular in
France than he is in the
United States. It also makes
Obama more popular in
France than Hollande, who
commands the support of
only about one in five of
his countrymen.
Obama could only look
good by comparison. The
U.S. president is often
accused of being a socialist
and presiding over a weak
economy. But Hollande
actually is a socialist
presiding over an econ-
omy with a double-digit
unemployment rate.
Hollande, for his part,
seemed delighted to
bask in Obama's relative
popularity. He praised
Obama's stand on climate
change and lavishly


hailed his "example" on
economic policy. 'America
experiences recovery in its
growth due to the policy
and the political choices
made," he said through an
interpreter.
One of the French ques-
tioners made the contrast
even worse for Hollande
by ridiculing his plans to
meet with U.S. business
leaders. "For them, you are
a socialist," the reporter
said. "You tax wealth at
75 percent."
Obama gave himself
credit for "some well-timed
policies" on the economy
but said his friend Francois
had a different set of
problems.
NPR's Scott Horsley
briefly pulled Obama back
into his messy domestic
situation, inquiring about
the latest Obamacare
delay. But through the
visit, Obama otherwise
succeeded in keeping
things in the happier realm
of foreign affairs. Hollande
chatted privately with his
friend in passable English;
Obama reciprocated by


greeting Hollande with
a "bonjour" that was,
Obama said, "the extent
of my French." Based on
his struggle to pronounce
"liberte, egalite, fraternite,"
this was true.
Gone was the "freedom
fries" unpleasantness of
a decade ago when the
two countries split over
Iraq; instead, the state
dinner menu included
Illinois caviar, vegetables
from the first lady's
garden, Colorado beef and
Pennsylvania quail eggs.
"There are so many
subjects I could mention,"
a grateful Hollande said in
the news conference, "and
every single time I would
mention one of those
issues, I would have to
bear witness of the quality
of our relations and of our
trust."
It was the sort of love
Obama doesn't get much
at home anymore.

Breaking: Woman charged as ruthless


roundhog Day
isn't just a movie.
Here it is
early 2014 still almost
three years away from a
new presidency but
it's high time to mention
that Hillary Clinton was a
"ruthless" first lady.
This shocking revelation
comes to us courtesy of the
Washington Free Beacon
- an online conservative
commentary/news
site that published an
article based on the papers
of Hillary's good friend,
Diane Blair, a University of
Arkansas political scientist.
Blair's papers were handed
over to the university after
her death in 2000.
The headline: "The
Hillary Papers: Archive
of 'closest friend' paints
portrait of ruthless First
Lady."
Blair's journal included
not only her own contem-
poraneous observations
during the Monica
Lewinsky saga but also
the notes she took while
talking on the phone with
the then-first lady.
One mustn't speak ill
of the dead, they say, but
they were Spartans in


the Sixth century B.C.,
so whatever. One might
at least wonder whether
Blair told Hillary she was
taking notes that she would
release posthumously.
That's certainly one form
of life insurance. But
wouldn't it have been more
close-friendish to wait until
all parties concerned were
enjoying the hereafter be-
fore publishing notes that
could damage the living?
Hillary has been memed.
Effective immediately, she
is ruthless.
The Beacon headline
was based on a private
1992 poll about Hillary
Clinton during her
husband's presidential
campaign. Although
respondents expressed
general admiration for
the Clintons, they also


expressed fear that "only
someone too politically
ambitious, too strong, and
too ruthless could survive
such controversy so well."
The pollsters concluded:
"What voters find slick
in Bill Clinton, they find
ruthless in Hillary."
Welcome to Double
Standards 101.
But we needn't visit that
lecture hall. Instead, let's
assume that Hillary Clinton
is ambitious, strong and
ruthless. Quick, the ink
on my palm is fading.
Please remind me who
those two people are in
Washington who don't fit
this description.
But Hillary Clinton
is sui generis, endlessly
fascinating in that love-her-
or-hate-her way. To some,
she is an intelligent woman
who has weathered a 20-
year assault with relative
grace. To others, she's a
pushy broad whose dagger
gaze reminds them of a
disapproving teacher, or
worse. Guess which ones
are women and which are
men.
What Blair's papers
mostly reveal is that
Hillary Clinton is a human


being who was deeply
hurt and humiliated by the
Lewinsky affair and that
she is sometimes profane
in private. Men, we admit,
are less secretive, often
hurling their epithets in
public even sometimes
on the Senate floor.
We also learn that
Hillary once referred to
Lewinsky as a "narcissistic
loony toon," which by
most books is a charitable
observation.
Perhaps the more apt
metaphor for this weeks
buzz isn't a movie after all
but double jeopardy. The
case of Hillary, Bill and
Monica has been prosecut-
ed and then some. Thus all,
especially Hillary have been
politically inoculated against
further prosecution on this
point Besides, as some
apparently need reminding
Hillary was the victims
She wasn't the only casu-
alty, however. Also wound-
ed, tragically, was Lewinsky,
now 40. Forevermore, her
life is a stained blue dress.
Though legally of age and
consensually available
when she began flirting
with the president, she
ultimately was a naive,


misguided kid barely out
of college. (Depending
on what is revealed in a
rumored $12 million tell-all
book, I reserve the right to
amend the foregoing.)
Meanwhile, Hillary, who
has said she forgave her
husband years ago, might
consider also forgiving
Lewinsky. There's nothing
like compassion to ruin a
ruthless meme. If I were
her scriptwriter, she might
say something like this:
Everyone is familiar with
the marital difficulties Bill
and I worked so hard to
get through. Yet, some have
seen fit to resurrect the past.
As I've said before, Iforgave
my husband a long time
ago. Today I'd like to forgive
someone else. Monica
Lewinsky.


As you've probably read,
I once made a disparaging
remark about Ms. Lewinsky
in confidence to a dear
friend. I'm sure you can
understand why. I can't
apologize for my feelings,
but l am sorry l said those
things. In any case, that
was also a long time ago.
We've all matured, become
wiser and moved on with
our lives. It's time to let the
country move on as well.
Thank you for your de-
cency in allowing the past
to rest. I'm Hillary Clinton,
and I'm the one running for
president.

Bipartisan fecklessness


hose who complain
about the absence
of bipartisanship
in the nation's capital are
sorely mistaken. When
it comes to caving to a
powerful constituency
and bestowing benefits,
bipartisanship is flour-
ishing.
Today's exhibit: military
pensions.
Just two months ago,
both houses of Congress
overwhelmingly passed,
and the president signed, a
budget deal. All the parties
involved happily patted
themselves on the back for
a display of cooperation
and fiscal responsibility.
The deal included savings
of $7 billion over 10 years
by reducing cost-of-living
adjustments for work-
ing-age military retirees.
That's reducing, by
one percentage point,
not eliminating as the
Simpson-Bowles com-
mission recommended.
That's working-age
retirees those under 62
who have served 20 years
(fewer than one in five


make it that long) and,
presumably, have taken
civilian jobs.
On average, enlisted
members begin collecting
retirement benefits in their
early 40s, meaning that
many veterans will spend
more years collecting
benefits than they did
serving. At age 62, benefits
are bumped back up, so
that veterans receive full
inflation protection.
House Budget
Committee Chairman
Paul Ryan explained the
thinking in a December
interview with The Weekly
Standard. "We give
them a slightly smaller
adjustment for inflation
because they're still in their
working years and in most


cases earning another
paycheck," the Wisconsin
Republican said. "Our goal
here is to make sure that
no other country comes
close to matching the U.S.
military and the stress on
the budget in the future
brings that whole entire
notion into question."
That was December,
this is February. Veterans
are in an uproar. Nothing
concentrates the congres-
sional mind like a power-
ful interest group (veterans
today, seniors tomorrow)
complaining about cuts.
Thus, the only debate
over the change was
how quickly it would be
undone and whether that
change would be offset
by other cuts. The House
voted overwhelmingly
Tuesday to restore full
benefits, "paid for" by
requiring additional, un-
specified cuts to Medicare
and other entitlement
programs in 2024. The
Senate is poised to follow
suit, with the only area of
disagreement the question
of whether and how to pay


for the change.
Meanwhile, proving
that cowardice is not
confined to one end of
Pennsylvania Avenue,
White House economic
adviser Gene Sperling on
Tuesday told a breakfast
sponsored by the Christian
Science Monitor that
President Obama supports
reversing the cuts he
signed into law, at least for
current recipients.
Of course, veterans de-
serve generous retirement
pay. Yet the current system
is extraordinarily generous
compared to private-sector
programs. A Congressional
Research Service report
found that the cost-of-living
change would mean a loss
of $69,000 in benefits for
the average enlisted person
and $87,000 for the average
officer. Significant, but that
is out of lifetime benefits of
$1.73 million and $3.83 mil-
lion, respectively.
Meanwhile, as four
senior retired military
officers pointed out in a
statement issued by the
Bipartisan Policy Center,


Military personnel costs
have doubled since
2000, even as the active
duty force has shrunk by
10 percent.
"Such cost growth is
unsustainable, and the
leadership of the Army,
Navy, Air Force and
Marines all agree that
the costs of benefits for
personnel are starting to
crowd out other important
investments that support
training, readiness and
modernization," the
officers said. "This plan is
an important first step in
tackling those costs.
Or was. The issue, unsur-
prisingly, has been distilled
to its political essence.
"You vote yes, you're for
our vets," Alaska Democrat
Mark Begich said on the
Senate floor Tuesday. "You
vote no, you're against our
vets." Well, if you put it that
way...
There are lessons to be
gleaned from this depress-
ing episode, with its predict-
able denouement The most
obvious involves politicians
of both parties who are


happy to proclaim their
willingness to make hard
choices and cowardly
about actually standing by
them. Especially in an elec-
tion year, brave lawmakers
are an endangered species.
A more sophisticated
corollary is the difficulty
of applying budgetary
pain in a piecemeal
manner. Sacrifice is more
palatable when shared.
The retirement change,
Maya MacGuineas of
the Committee for a
Responsible Federal
Budget told me, "is a
provision that I don't
think would have gotten a
second look if it was part
of a big package."
But of course the appe-
tite for such a package is
as lacking as the capacity
to achieve it. Hence the
race to repeal the military
retirement provision, set-
ting a land-speed record
for bipartisan fecklessness.

Why GOP reversed course on reform


ell, that didn't
take long.
Less than
a week after House
Republicans sought to
shed their negative image
by opening the way to a
compromise on immi-
gration legislation, they
reversed course, declaring
there was no way any bill
could pass this year.
"There's widespread
doubt about whether
this administration can
be trusted to enforce our
laws," House Speaker John
Boehner said. "And it's go-
ing to be difficult to move
any immigration legislation
until that changes."
Their decision means
the GOP will have difficulty
improving its negative
standing with Hispanics
before the 2016 election.
GOP lawmakers cited
proposed border control

during the glitch-filed
rollout of the Affordable
Care Act and a variety of
other measures.
Sen. Marco Rubio of
Florida, who drew sharp
conservative criticism for
backing the bipartisan
immigration bill that
passed the Senate, said the
IRS scandal, the Benghazi
controversy and the health
care law were "evidence the
government, this adminis-
tration, unilaterally decides
which part of the law to
enforce and not enforce."
A relative newcomer,
Rubio seems not to know
past presidents have done

the likely results: quotas
on student discipline and
a double standard if, as
appears likely, black stu-
dents misbehave at higher
rates than non-blacks.
And it's important,
as U.S. Civil Rights
Commission member Gail
Heriot wrote, to "consider
the other side of the coin
- that African-American
students maybe dispro-
portionately victimized by
disorderly classrooms."
Not much learning
takes place in classrooms
disrupted by misbehaving
students. This policy
could end up hurting
black students who do not
misbehave.
A similar price maybe
paid by law-abiding blacks
and Hispanics in NewYork

similar things. George W
Bush often issued signing
statements noting which
part of a law he would
enforce, and others issued
more executive orders than
Obama.
But the real reason is
the continuing GOP split
on the extent to which an
immigration bill would
provide legal status for
the 11 million immigrants
here illegally. Party leaders
refuse to work with the
Democratic minority to
craft a compromise bill
that could pass the House,
insisting on a measure
backed by "the majority of
the majority."
According to several
analysts, opinion in most
Republican-held House
districts opposes legal sta-
tus for illegal immigrants,
making any GOP backer
vulnerable to a primary
challenge. That would
likely mean that the House
would stay Republican but

City if incoming Mayor Bill
de Blasio follows through
on his campaign promise to
end the police department's
stop-and-frisk policy.
That policy was dis-
approved as "indirect
racial profiling" by a
federal judge who used
disparate impact analysis:
The percentage of blacks
and Hispanics stopped
and frisked was far higher
than their share of the city
population.
But as Heather
MacDonald of the
Manhattan Institute has
pointed out, the relevant
comparison group is not
population data, but crime
data. The judge, she wrote,
"ignored the fact that blacks
commit nearly 80 percent
of all shootings in NewYork
and two-thirds of the violent
crime."
The appeals court
removed the judge from
the case and stayed her
decision, and de Blasio ap-
pointed William Bratton,

with a stronger tea party
influence threatening
Boehner's speakership.
Boehner talked of
acting in 2015, but by then
candidates in the GOP
presidential race will be
vying to take the strongest
anti-immigrant positions.
And Republicans rejected
a proposal by a top Senate
Democrat, Sen. Charles
Schumer, for a law that
would take effect after
Obama leaves office.
Republicans don't want
to give Obama a legislative
victory. And Obama made
passage of comprehensive
immigration reform with
some form of legal status,
if not citizenship, one of
his top second-term goals.
The GOP stance is
especially ironic, since
Hispanic groups have
sharply criticized the
Obama administration
for its zeal in deporting
more than 2 million illegal
immigrants.

who has defended stop-
and-frisk, as police com-
missioner. This suggests
that the police tactics that
have made the city safer
for law-abiding blacks,
and Hispanics will not be
entirely abandoned.
Another area in which
disparate impact analysis
has been deployed is in
housing. Department
Housing and Urban
Development Secretary
Shaun Donovan referred
approvingly to a study
by Zillow, an online real
estate data company, that
said blacks and Hispanics
are denied home mort-
gages at rates higher than
whites and Hispanics. "(T)
hese fundamental dispar-
ities affect the abilities of
members of each group
to accumulate financial
assets," Zillow's economist
writes.
But he also admits that
black and Hispanic ap-
plicants had significantly
lower incomes than whites

But by refusing to
consider immigration
legislation, the House
GOP could spur Obama to
use his executive author-
ity unilaterally to reduce
deportations of illegal
immigrants or expand
the number who could
stay permanently in the
United States. That's what
he did in 2012 when he
gave permanent status to
the so-called DREAMers,
young Hispanics brought
here illegally by their
parents who became
either military veterans,
high school graduates or
the equivalent.
Behind this jockeying
is the realization by both
parties that the nation's
burgeoning Hispanic
population could deter-
mine their political future.
After all, the number of
U.S. Hispanics will likely
triple by 2040, spurring a
big increase in their clout
from their 10 percent of

and so presumably tend
to be less creditworthy.
Dispensing with credit
standards to promote
minority homeownership
led directly to the 2008
financial collapse and
to foreclosures on blacks
and Hispanics.
Disparate impact
analysis came into the
law when courts faced
disingenuous and some-
times violent resistance
to civil rights rulings and
laws by Southern whites.
It was a drastic remedy
for drastic obstruction of
the law.
A 1971 Supreme Court
case ruled that employ-
ment discrimination could
be inferred by seemingly
neutral practices that had
disparate impact on blacks
and whites.
Around that time, the
Nixon administration was
imposing racial quotas
and preferences on build-
ing trades unions, where
desirable positions tended
to be doled out to sons,
nephews and cousins of
current members.
Ultimately, disparate
impact analysis rests on
what ordinary citizens


voters in 2012.
In a sense, California
and Texas are the cutting
edge of that change. In
California, the GOP is still
suffering from Gov. Pete
Wilson's support for a
1994 referendum denying
health and education ben-
efits to illegal immigrants.
In Texas, Republicans
risk similar damage from
a voter identification law
that will keep thousands
of Hispanics from voting,
redistricting plans that
reduce Hispanic legislative
clout and repeal of in-state
college tuition for illegal
immigrants.
So it was hardly surpris-
ing that the hint of a more
positive national GOP
attitude toward Hispanics
was just too good to be true.

instinctively recognize as a
fiction, the notion that in a
fair society you would find
the same racial and ethnic
mix in every school, every
occupation and every
neighborhood.
This runs against the
sometimes uncomfortable
fact that abilities and
interests are not evenly
distributed among ethnic
and racial groups.
That doesn't justify
racial discrimination.
Ordinary Americans
understand that the
variation within groups
is much higher than the
variation between groups.
They understand that it's
unfair and unwise to judge
individuals by their race or
ethnicity.
Unfortunately, disparate

policies that lead people
to do just that. And in
the process, it produces
results that hurt many of
the intended beneficiaries.

Airport pitches spring training


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER

PUNTA GORDA -Just
in time for spring training,
Allegiant Air is introduc-
ing three nonstop routes
this week at Punta Gorda
Airport. The new desti-
nations include seasonal
routes to Portsmouth,
N.H., and Columbus,
Ohio, along with a perma-
nent route to Cincinnati
that starts today.
"Our nonstop, con-
venient and affordable
flights to Punta Gorda
make for a home run
spring training vacation,"


Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant
president, said in a press
release.
Punta Gorda Airport
is centrally located in
Southwest Florida mid-
way between Fort Myers
and Sarasota, a quick
drive to eight teams'
spring training stadiums.
The first spring training
game at Charlotte Sports
Park is slated for Feb. 28,
featuring the home team
Tampa Bay Rays and the
Baltimore Orioles.
Allegiant Air now
has nonstop service to
23 cities from Punta
Gorda Airport, which


doubled its number of
destinations during the
past year. The increased
activity is reflected in the
47,091 passengers com-
ing through the airport
last month compared
with 19,225 in January
2013, a 145 percent
increase. The three new
flights this week will only
add to the passenger
count for the airport's
sole carrier.
"The first flight we
had in from Portsmouth
last night had every
single seat occupied,"
said Gary Quill, airport
executive director. "The


passengers were saying it
was 1 degree below zero
when they left and they
were jumping around,
happy to be here."
Quill said there is
reason for optimism
that the seasonal flights
to Portsmouth and
Columbus, only sched-
uled through the end
of April, may become
year-round.
"Hopefully, both these
routes will develop into
permanent routes," he
said.
While the extremely
cold and snow-laden
winter up North is


spurring a lot of air
travel to the Sunshine
State, spring training
also is a traditional draw.
Allegiant is striving to
take advantage of both.
In introducing its
flights to the newest
cities, the airline is
offering one-way travel
deals as low as $89, with
restrictions.
The no-frills airline
continues to show
profit by flying mainly to
secondary markets in the
East and Midwest, where
Allegiant faces little
competition. The airline
adds to its bottom line by


providing travelers with
discount package deals
that include air, hotel, car
and attraction reserva-
tions. Allegiant officials
credit Punta Gorda
with being the carrier's
fastest-growing market.
"Our vacation packag-
es and nonstop service
to Tampa and Orlando
have been very popular
with area residents, and
we are confident the
community will embrace
Allegiant's low-cost
brand of nonstop service
to Southwest Florida,"
Levy stated.

McCall Ranch auction fails to meet $14M minimum


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER

NORTH PORT -The
5,771-acre McCall Ranch
failed to sell Thursday at
an auction that drew bid-
ders from as far away as
New York and California,
falling short by $100,000
of the $14 million
minimum price for the
property.
According to William
Bone, from the Gadsden,
Ala.-based National
Auction Group, none of
the 13 registered bidders
reached the $14 million
threshold, and now the
company has a week
to unload the property
before it reverts back to
creditors.

Bone said. "It's the largest
piece of land this far
south that hasn't been
touched."
The auction took nearly
three hours, and featured
a three-round system that
found bidders making
offers on nine individual
tracts of land.
The auction group
then gave the bidders
an opportunity in the
remaining two rounds to
combine their individ-
ual tracts for the entire
7-square-mile property,
in an effort to drive up
the price of the land that
once was bought for
more than $60 million.
During the first
round, some tracts sold
for as high as $2,250
an acre, and as low as

$750 an acre.
Jim Gabbert of Gabbert
Investment had control
of three tracts, but was
among the bidders who
lost out on the chance
when they failed to
meet the $14 million
threshold.
Gabbert said he
planned to use the
property as a sod farm,
had he won. He said he's
often bid on, and lost,
larger tracts of land, and
Thursday's loss didn't
phase him.
In the end, he said the
$14 million threshold
had little bearing on
the actual value of the
property.
"The price has nothing
to do with the agricultur-
al value," he said. "And
the debt on the property


has nothing to do with
the price either."
The land once was
eyed for a development
called "Isles of Athena,"
a sprawling subdivision
that was to feature resi-
dential and commercial
development, but folded
during the housing
collapse and reverted
back into the hands of
Wiley McCall.
The property since
has been used strictly
for hunting, fishing and
camping by McCall, and
has plenty of wild game
and lakes stocked with
bass.

Jim Dick was unaware an
auction was even taking
place Thursday, and
wandered onto the prop-
erty nearly by accident.

happy about the se-
lection, noting Bruno
was the first career tech
teacher to win the award.
"We started the STEM
lab at Punta Gorda
Middle School four years
ago and we had this vi-
sion for it," Gorton said.
"Sharon Bruno brought
that vision to life."
After the winners were
announced, audience
members got a chance


to thank the nominees
and winners for their
hard work.
The event is "very nice
every year. They do a nice
job putting it together,"
said Lori Carr, principal
of East Elementary
School. "This year I found
out one of my ex-fifth-
grade students was one
of the nominees, so that
was exciting."

The Minnesota native,
who grew up on a farm,
said he was curious to
see what such a large
piece of Florida land
looked like, and who
would be interested in
buying it. And in the end,
while he didn't neces-
sarily care who ended
up with the property, he
wasn't impressed with
the bid price.
"You can't even grow
anything on this land,"
he said. "It looks like it
could be used for devel-
opment, but that would
take awhile."
Kevin Norman was
representing a bidder
from New Mexico, who
hoped to be able to
preserve a tract.
Norman walked away
disappointed, he said.


"We buy properties to
help protect endangered
species," Norman added.
Bone hopes a buyer
comes forward in the
next seven days, saying
they were "this close" to
unloading the land.
He was surprised a lo-
cal government, or possi-
bly the Southwest Florida
Water Management
District, didn't come
forward to buy the land,
but he hopes they're still
able to unload it by the
deadline.
"Our phone is going to
ring off the hook tomor-
row," he said.

Winners show flair at the fair


By BARBARA
BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Michaela Flowers, a
junior at Charlotte High
School, won Grand
Champion Rabbit as
well as Grand Champion
Poultry and Reserve
Champion Hog at the
recent Charlotte County
Fair.
While the fair orga-
nizers were lining up
entertainers and vendors
for the fair last fall, 4-H
students were getting
their menageries of
animals ready to make
their debuts at the fair.
It's a big commitment.
Flowers, who has been
raising animals and
showing them at the fair
for the last four years,
estimates she spends
about two hours every
day feeding and cleaning
up after her animals,
plus grooming.
"My friends all know
if they want to see me,
they have to come over
because that's where I'll
be," she said.
Her commitment paid
off big at the fair this
year. Flowers won Grand
Champion Poultry,
Grand Champion Rabbit
and Reserve Champion
Pig, which is the second
winner after the Grand
Champion.
The hog which she
named Fried Porkanisha
- was underweight
when she bought it.
Flowers got Porkanisha
up to the required
weight of 80 pounds
for its first weigh-in
last September. After
that, the pig gained two
pounds per day, ending
at 304 pounds for the
fair.
"The animals all have
different personalities,


so it's fun. But you know
it's not a pet, and that
you'll be sending it to
market," said Flowers,
adding that she also
enjoys meeting all the
people who also raise
and show animals.
It's even led to a busi-
ness, Dirt Road Rabbitry,
selling pedigree rabbits.
Sales of the rabbits help
pay for the costs asso-
ciated with raising all of
her animals.
The fair was a show-
case for hardworking
students in many
disciplines. While some
were showing their prize
pigs, poultry, steers,
bulls, heifers, goats,
cavies (guinea pigs) and
rabbits, others were
displaying their artistic,
musical and acting
abilities.
The expo building was
packed with student
artwork, many of which
were awarded blue, red
and white ribbons. On
the stage behind the
expo building, student
winners for music and
drama demonstrated
their talents by sing-
ing and performing.
Teachers at each high
school chose students
for $1,000 scholarships
or, in some cases, two
students to share the
scholarship at $500
each.
The fair has packed up
and gone until next year.
But student winners
have the memories of
how their hard work
paid off in a big way.
And fairgoers who took
a break from the food
and entertainment to
see the displays and
competitions came away
with the knowledge of
the amazing talents of
Charlotte County youth.

Englewood artist finds inspiration everywhere


By ERIN MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

ENGLEWOOD -At
76 years old, David
McIntyre seems to be
kicking up the leaves in
the autumn of his life.
The retired business-
man's diverse schedule
keeps him in and out
of pools, airplanes,
rickshaws and galleries.
Three days a week, he
can be found swimming
laps at the Englewood
or Venice YMCA training
to maintain his World
Master status. If he's not
in the water, he could be
off on a safari in Africa
or island-hopping in the
South Pacific. At least
once a month, he's man-
ning the gallery at the
Arts Alliance of Lemon
Bay in Olde Englewood
Village where his paint-
ings are on display.
The sentimental
artist, enthusiastic
world traveler and
competitive swimmer
braided into one doesn't
appear to enter into any
pursuit half-heartedly.
Retirement from a life
of international busi-
ness has only served to
magnify his passions.
Shortly after graduating
from college in Michigan,
McIntyre accepted a
job teaching biology
to students in Jamaica
in the early '60s. What
was intended to be a
six-month assignment

Taj Mahal in India. At 76, Mclntyre travels the world to find
inspiration for his painting and to swim competitively.


turned out to be a three-
year adventure during
which time he worked as
a liaison with the Peace
Corps improving the
water supply to sur-
rounding villages.
From there, he landed
another teaching posi-
tion in Hawaii for three
years. Returning to the
United States to com-
plete a graduate degree
in international manage-
ment, McIntyre launched
a career traveling abroad
beginning with a job
with the 7UP soft drink
company.
"The world was my


territory," Mclntyre said,
with the exception of the
U.S. and Canada.
It was the start of
what would become a
lifelong case of wanderlust
continuing into his retire-
ment. Accompanied by
his wife, Lois, the couple
has traveled the globe
exploring the culture and
customs of countries on
several continents. From
India to the Cook Islands,
Cambodia to Tanzania, the
two have navigated rural
countryside, subways,
rivers and ancient ruins.
"I've never been able
to get the sand out of

my shoes," Mclntyre
said of his love of travel.
"My favorite country is
a country that I haven't
visited."
Influenced by his
grandmother and the
work of post-impres-
sionist Paul Gauguin,
Mclntyre took brush
to canvas in 2002. The
mostly self-taught artist
has painted 160 canvas-
es over the past 10 to
12 years and has sold all
but 25.
'Almost everything has
a palm tree in it or some
variation of it," he said.
Inspired by his love of


the tropics, his paintings
are filled with bold,
colorful strokes of island
life. Several of his paint-
ings feature a woman
sitting on the beach
surrounded by lush flora
and tropical backdrops.
McIntyre's travels have
also included trips to
compete in four of the
World Masters Games
including Canada,
Germany, New Zealand
and most recently in
Italy. In the summer of
2013, he received a gold
medal in the 50-meter
backstroke in the 75- to
79-year-old category.


Before heading home,
he also won two bronze
medals and three silver
medals sharing the pool
with former Olympians
he has befriended after
swimming together com-
petitively for years.
McIntyre hopes his
story inspires other
retirees to make the most
of their golden years.
"Retirement is the best
job I've ever had," he
said.
A selection of his
work can be seen at the
Arts Alliance of Lemon
Bay located at 477 W
Dearborn St., Englewood.

to revive the old-time barbershop quar-
tet sound. In the past 12 years or so that
he has been performing, he said this
year has been very busy, with 30 calls so
far for their singing services. When they
travel, they usually have five members
of the group so one can rotate and take
photos of each event.
"We sang in a restaurant the other
day and everyone kept coming up to
us asking us to sing for them," he said.
"One time, we walked onto a racquetball


court and performed and even at a board
meeting."
Branch said this is their second-big-
gest fundraiser of the year. At 7 p.m.,
on March 8 the Suncoast Statesmen
will be joining other a cappella groups
at the Cultural Center of Charlotte
County for a Bandstand Harmony
show.
"That is our largest moneymaker,"
Branch said. "We are always looking
for new members as well. It's a great
experience, and it brings a lot of smiles
to people's faces."
Just ask Martha Bisson.

Comcast to buy Time Warner


Critics foresee rise in high-speed Internet prices


By RYAN NAKASHIMA
AP BUSINESS WRITER
LOS ANGELES -With a
single behemoth purchase,
Comcast is creating a dom-
inant force in American
entertainment and presenting
federal regulators with an
equally outsized quandary:
How should they handle a
conglomerate that promises to
improve cable TV and Internet
service to millions of homes
but also consolidates unprece-
dented control of what viewers
watch and download?
Comcast, which was already
the nation's No. 1 pay TV and
Internet provider, says its
$45.2 billion purchase of Time


Warner Cable will provide
faster, more reliable service to
more customers and save mon-
ey on TV programming costs.
If the acquisition is approved,
Comcast will serve some 30
million pay TV customers and
32 million Internet subscribers.
But industry watchdogs say
the deal will give the com-
pany too much power and
ultimately raise the price of
high-speed connections.
"How much power over con-
tent do we want a single compa-
ny to have?" said Bert Foer, pres-
ident of the American Antitrust
Institute, aWashington-based
consumer-interest group.

New gender options for Facebook users


MENLO PARK, Calif.
(AP) -You don't have to
be just male or female on
Facebook anymore. The
social media giant has
added a customizable
option with about 50
different terms people
can use to identify their
gender as well as three
preferred pronoun choic-
es: him, her or them.
Facebook said the
changes, shared with The
Associated Press before
the launch on Thursday,
initially cover the compa-
ny's 159 million monthly
users in the U.S. and are
aimed at giving people
more choices in how they
describe themselves,
such as androgynous,
bi-gender, intersex, gen-
der fluid or transsexual.
"There's going to be a
lot of people for whom
this is going to mean
nothing, but for the few
it does impact, it means
the world," said Facebook
software engineer Brielle
Harrison, who worked on
the project and is herself
undergoing gender trans-
formation, from male


to female. On Thursday,
while watchdogging
the software for any
problems, she said she
was also changing her
Facebook identity from
Female to TransWoman.
"All too often transgen-
der people like myself and
other gender noncon-
forming people are given
this binary option, do you
want to be male or female?
What is your gender? And
it's kind of disheartening
because none of those
let us tell others who we
really are," she said. "This
really changes that, and
for the first time I get to go
to the site and specify to
all the people I know what
my gender is."
Facebook, which
has 1.23 billion active
monthly users around
the world, also allows
them to keep their gen-
der identity private and
will continue to do so.
The Williams Institute,
a think tank based at the
University of California,
Los Angeles, estimates
there are at least 700,000
individuals in the U.S.

who identify as transgen-
der, an umbrella term
that includes people who
live as a gender different
from the one assigned to
them at birth.
The move by Facebook
represents a basic and
yet significant form of
recognition of the nation's
growing transgender rights
movement, which has
been spurred by veteran
activists and young people
who identify as transgen-
der at younger ages. The
Human Rights Campaign


last year found that 10 per-
cent of the 10,000 lesbian,
gay, bisexual transgender
youths it surveyed used
"other" or wrote in their
own gender terms.
"Over the past few
years, a person's Facebook
profile truly has become
their online identity, and
now Facebook has taken
a milestone step to allow
countless people to more
honestly and accurately
represent themselves,"
HRC President Chad
Griffin said.


Debt limit saves GOP from political showdown


WASHINGTON
(AP) Republicans'
new acquiescence to
letting the government
pile up more debt with
no strings attached
paid double political
dividends: It spared the
GOP another politically
debilitating showdown
with President Barack
Obama and also forced
Democrats to cast votes
that rivals immediately
used against them in this
year's midterm elections.
The GOP's top pri-
ority is maintaining its
House majority and
seizing control of the
Senate, and the political
strategy is to keep it


simple talk incessantly
about Obama's unpop-
ular health care law and
avoid cataclysmic fights
like the one that led to
last fall's 16-day partial
government shutdown.
That largely rules out
the contentious issue of
overhauling the nation's
immigration laws.
Both House Speaker
John Boehner, R-Ohio, and
Senate Republican leader
Mitch McConnell, R-Ky,
convinced many in their
GOP caucus to accept leg-
islation lifting the nation's
borrowing authority with
no concessions from the
Obama administration.
Gone were demands for


the Keystone XL pipeline,
repeal of the health care
law and even a popular
plan to reverse the pen-
sion cut for working-age
military retirees.
Republicans wanted
to avoid the drama of
a possible default and
the political fallout from
last year's government
shutdown. Facing a
Feb. 27 deadline from
the Treasury, they acted
swiftly, realizing that
there was no negotiating
with the White House
or Democrats on the
issue. Boehner, who has

"I think it's always
better to have something
that is straightforward
than smoke and mir-
rors," said Rep. Mick
Mulvaney, R-S.C., who
didn't like the idea of
attaching the military
retiree provision to the
debt limit bill. He added
that Boehner was better
off with his final strategy.
"It's much more honest
to have a straightforward
vote," Mulvaney said.
The House passed the
debt limit bill with 193
Democratic votes and 28
Republican on Tuesday.
Boehner and several
other members of the
leadership along with

Tapes: No deaths,
injuries from NJ
bridge traffic
EDGEWATER, N.J.
(AP) -A traffic jam
deliberately orchestrated
by members of Gov.
Chris Christie's staff that
caused days of gridlock
in northern New Jersey
appeared not to lead to
anyone's death or serious-
ly compromise their med-
ical care, according to a
comprehensive review
by The Associated Press
of five hours of emer-
gency dispatch audio,
interviews and dozens of
pages of call logs.
The lack of life-or-
death consequences
reflects good fortune, not
good planning. It would
have been impossible for
anyone responsible to
have predicted that such
exasperating traffic would
not cause serious emer-
gencies for police, fire-
fighters and paramedics.
But the AP's real-world
findings could affect the
political repercussions for
Christie, a presumptive
Republican presidential
candidate in 2016.

Rival Chicago
groups clash over
Obama library bid
CHICAGO (AP)-
Barack Obama's journey
from community organiz-
er to lawmaker to presi-
dent was also a journey
through several different
Chicagos, from the city's
isolated and neglected
Far South Side to its elite
centers of political and
social power.
So it's perhaps no
surprise that the contest
to host his presidential
library has set off some
classic Chicago infighting
between activists in
depressed neighborhoods
and wealthy universities.
The library is "such a
prize that nobody is going
to yield power to anybody
else," veteran Chicago
political analyst Don Rose
said.
The squabble also puts
Mayor Rahm Emanuel,
Obama's former chief of
staff, in the difficult posi-
tion of trying to present
a single, unified bid, lest
the feuding weaken the
city's odds against rival
campaigns to put the
library in New York or
Hawaii.
No fewer than six po-
tential Chicago bids have
emerged, each backed by
different interests.

Warm West offsets
cold East, makes
average January
WASHINGTON (AP) -
For those who shivered
through January, this
maybe hard to believe:
Nationwide, the average
temperature for the month
was about normal because
a warmWest offset a cool
East.
January in the Lower
48 states was the 53rd
coldest of 120 years of re-
cord-keeping, the National
Oceanic Atmospheric
Administration announced
Thursday. The average was
30.3 degrees, only one-
tenth of a degree below
normal for the month.
While Alabama had its
fourth coldest January
on record, California and
Alaska had their third
warmest.
"The phrase, 'the new
normal' definitely applies
to our perception of
January 2014 weather
out east," Weather
Underground meteorology
director Jeff Masters said
in an email. "We've gotten
used to a warmer climate."

Huge US thermal

PRIMM, Nevada (AP)
- A windy stretch of
the Mojave Desert once
roamed by tortoises and
coyotes has been trans-
formed by hundreds of
thousands of mirrors into
the largest solar power
plant of its type in the
world, a milestone for
a growing industry that
is testing the balance
between wilderness con-
servation and the pursuit
of green energy across the
AmericanWest.
The Ivanpah Solar
Electric Generating System,
sprawling across roughly 5
square miles of federal land
near the California-Nevada
border, formally opened
Thursday after years of
regulatory and legal tangles
ranging from relocating
protected tortoises to
assessing the impact on
Mojave milkweed and
other plants.
"The Ivanpah project
is a shining example of
how America is becom-
ing a world leader in
solar energy," U.S. Energy
Secretary Ernest Moniz
said in a statement after
attending a dedication
ceremony at the site.

Way cleared for

NEW ORLEANS (AP)-
A federal appeals court

medical treatment for
exposure to crude oil or
chemical dispersants
during the 2010 BP oil

cleanup.
Objections by some
members of the settlement
class were withdrawn over

tlement is separate from a

Breakthrough seen in US-Native American contracts


WASHINGTON (The
Washington Post) For
the first time in decades,
the federal government
this year will pay Native
American tribes what
they're owed under the
terms of health and social
service contracts that
have previously been
underfunded by millions
of dollars annually,
according to lawmakers
and congressional staff
members.
The payments for 2014
are reflected in revised
spending plans for the
Bureau of Indian Affairs
(BIA) and the Indian
Health Service (IHS) that
are to be delivered to the
House and Senate ap-
propriations committees
within a week.
"This ought to put
this issue to rest now,"
said Rep. Tom Cole,

The Obama admin-

dramatic reversal from its
proposed 2014 budget,
which called for placing
spending caps on individ-
ual contracts. Under the
caps, tribes would again
have been paid millions
of dollars less than what
they say they are owed
and millions less than
the agencies' estimates
of the payments due. The
spending caps also would
have been a step toward
limiting payments in the
future.

those conditions expire in

Man gets life for killing,



burying body in cement


PENSACOLA (AP)- A
fantasy game enthusiast
was sentenced to life in
prison Thursday for beat-
ing a former Pensacola
newspaper reporter to
death with a hammer
and burying his body in
a concrete-covered pit in
Georgia.
William Cormier III was
so desperate for money
that he killed Sean Dugas
in the fall of 2012 so he
could steal his $100,000
collection of fantasy
role-playing cards for
the game "Magic: The
Gathering," prosecutors
said.
Jurors convicted
Cormier of first-degree
murder after a little more
than an hour of delibera-
tions. Cormier III showed


no reaction as the verdict
was read.
Dugas' parents broke
down in sobs as the
verdict was read. His
mother clutched a picture
of her son.
Prosecutor Bridgette
Jensen told jurors during
closing arguments that
Cormier III used profits
from selling the cards to
pay for the plastic storage
container that became
Dugas' concrete-encased
coffin.
"He sold Seans' own
cards to buy that cheap,
plastic coffin to put his
body in," Jensen said.
Defense attorneys
said prosecutors didn't
prove that Cormier III
killed Dugas, and instead
suggested his twin was


responsible. Cormier's
twin brother pleaded
no contest to charges of
helping his brother move
Dugas' body from Florida
to Georgia.
Court deputies escorted
Christopher Cormier into
the courtroom immedi-
ately after the verdict was
read. The two brothers sat
in the courtroom, but did
not look at each other as
Dugas' family members
gave testimony to the
judge.
They asked the judge
to give both twins the
maximum, and he did.
Christopher Cormier was
sentenced to 15 years in
prison.
Dugas' parents described
their son to the judge.
"Bohemian, eclectic,


unique, free spirit, all
these words were used to
describe Sean. The most
important word to me was
son. He was my only son,"
Christopher Dugas said.
Lois Jones, Dugas'
mother, sobbed as she
told the judge about her
grief.
"I despise the fact that
his supposed friends
could hurt him like this.
You must make sure they
never hurt anyone else,"
she said.
Dugas' aunt told the
judge that Dugas was a
philosopher, talented
journalist and someone
who wanted to know
"what makes people tick."
Dugas was a reporter
with the Pensacola News
Journal from 2005 to 2010.


Loud music killing jury ends day 2 of deliberation


JACKSONVILLE (AP)
-The defense attorney
for a Florida man accused
of fatally shooting a teen
after an argument over
loud music said Thursday
that his client is in good
spirits as he waits for
jurors to come back with a
verdict in his trial.
Michael Dunn's attor-
ney, Cory Strolla, said that
waiting for a verdict is the
hard part of the trial.
Dunn is charged with
first-degree murder,
though jurors could also
consider second-degree
murder and manslaughter
as options for a conviction.
The 12 sequestered ju-
rors went home Thursday


evening without reaching
a verdict after deliberating
for almost 12 hours over
two days. They will resume
deliberations Friday
morning.
On Thursday, the jurors
asked to see a mannequin
and sticks that had been
used by prosecutors in the
courtroom to reconstruct
the angle of the shots
that hit the victim. Circuit
Judge Russell Healey
denied the request, saying
the props were only used
for demonstrative pur-
poses and weren't entered
into evidence.
A short time later, jurors
asked for an easel and pa-
per, and an hour after that


they asked when Dunn had
written a jailhouse letter
in which he recounted
his version of events. The
answer was July of 2013.
Dunn claims he shot
17-year-old Jordan Davis,
of Marietta, Ga., in self-de-
fense outside a Jacksonville
convenience store in
2012. But prosecutors told
jurors Dunn shot the teen
because he felt disrespect-
ed by Davis. Davis had the
music in his SUV turned
back up after a friend com-
plied with Dunn's request
to turn the volume down.
The trial was the latest
Florida case to raise ques-
tions about self-defense
and race; Dunn is white


and the teens were black.
It came six months after
George Zimmerman was
acquitted of any crime for
fatally shooting 17-year-
old Trayvon Martin in
Sanford, Fla.
The Dunn trial wouldn't
have as much attention if
not for the Zimmerman
acquittal last summer,
Strolla said.
A spokeswoman for
the State Attorney's Office
said in an email that her
office got the Dunn case in
December 2012.
"The prosecution of
Michael Dunn began long
before the Zimmerman
trial," said spokeswoman
Jackelyn Barnard.

Stocks rise as




investors assess




earnings


NEWYORK (AP) -The stock
market rose for the fifth time
in six days Thursday as higher
earnings from several big U.S.
companies helped investors shrug
off discouraging news about jobs
and retail spending.
Goodyear Tire & Rubber surged
to its highest level in almost six
years after the company's earn-
ings beat analysts' forecasts. CBS
also jumped after the broadcaster
beat Wall Street's profit expec-
tations and sped up its stock
buyback program.
Investors' focus has returned to
company earnings after concerns
about growth in emerging markets
and the health of the U.S. economy


pushed the Standard & Poor's 500
index to its lowest level in more
than three months at the start of
February. Analysts at S&P Capital
IQ expect that earnings at com-
panies in the index increased last
quarter at the fastest pace in a year.
"The momentum from earn-
ings continues," said Andres
Garcia-Amaya, a global market
strategist at JPMorgan Funds.
The Standard & Poor's 500
index rose 10.47 points, or
0.6 percent, to 1,829.83. The Dow
Jones industrial average climbed
63.65 points, or 0.4 percent, to
16,027.59. The Nasdaq composite
rose 39.38 points, or 0.9 percent,
to 4,240.67.

January retail sales fall Gold tops $1,300 in
short amid storms longest rally since 2011


(Tribune Washington Bureau)
- The winter economic blues
continue.
Retail sales unexpectedly fell
0.4 percent in January from
December, the government said
Thursday. That was the biggest
drop in 18 months and the
latest in a series of blah reports
on the economy.
Sales were "weaker than already
low expectations" for flat results,
the softness "punctuated by hefty
downward revisions to December,"
according to Credit Suisse.
The bank's analysts said in a
note to clients that "at first blush
these data appear to be impacted
by the frigid weather across the
country" and that "February does
not offer much hope for relief"
Volatile temperatures may
prevent the industry from
getting "a clean read on retail
demand for quite some time,"
according to Credit Suisse.
Severe weather is also being
blamed for weakening hiring
recently.


NEWYORK (Bloomberg) -
Gold posted the longest rally
since July 2011, topping $1,300
an ounce for the first time
since November, after signs of
faltering U.S. economic growth
added to the increasing investor
appetite for haven assets.
U.S. retail sales fell in January
by the most since June 2012,
and jobless claims unexpected-
ly rose last week, government
data showed today. Federal
Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen
said Feb. 11 that the recovery
in the U.S. labor market is "far
from complete." Gold jumped
70 percent from December 2008
to June 2011 as the central bank
pumped more than $2 trillion
into the financial system.
Gold last year tumbled the
most since 1981 after some
investors lost faith in the metal
as a store of value. In 2014, the
price has climbed 8.1 percent
amid a drop in emerging-market
currencies and rising demand
for coins and bars.

White House sees longer wait for Afghan agreement


WASHINGTON (AP)
-The White House is
dropping its insistence
that Afghanistan sign
a crucial security pact
within weeks, suggesting
it could be willing to
wait to see whether
Afghan President Hamid
Karzai's successor might
be easier to work with in
deciding how many U.S.
and international troops
remain in Afghanistan
when combat concludes
at the end of the year.
Karzai further exac-
erbated tensions with
Washington on Thursday
by releasing 65 accused
militants from a former
U.S. prison near Kabul.
The American military


angrily denounced the
move, saying the men
are Taliban fighters who
will likely return to the
battlefield to kill coali-
tion and Afghan forces.
Even before the prison-
er release, a U.S. official
said the White House
has not ruled out waiting
until after Afghanistan's
April elections to see if a
new leader will finalize
the bilateral security
agreement Karzai
stubbornly refuses to
sign. The official said
President Barack Obama
has not yet decided
whether to wait that
long, adding that doing
so comes with increased
risks and complications


for the U.S. military.
The White House had
hoped Karzai would sign
the bilateral security
agreement by the end
of last year. When that
deadline passed, admin-
istration officials repeat-
edly said a deal needed
to be signed within
"weeks, not months."
But Obama adminis-
tration officials quietly
backed away from that
timetable this week. On
Wednesday, White House
spokesman Jay Carney
said only that the U.S.
wanted the agreement to
be signed "promptly" -
a purposeful change in
rhetoric, the U.S. official
said. The official insisted


on anonymity because
that official was not
authorized to publicly
discuss the administra-
tion's thinking.
State Department
spokeswoman Marie
Harf also avoided putting
a specific timetable on
finalizing the agreement,
saying Thursday that the
U.S. position was simply
that "it needs to be
signed soon."
Karzai's refusal to sign
the security pact, along
with his increasingly
anti-American rhetoric,
has strained relations
with the Obama admin-
istration. During remarks
Thursday on the prisoner
release, Karzai accused


the U.S. of "harassing"
the Afghan judiciary by
criticizing the release and
said Washington must
respect Afghanistan's
sovereignty.
"If Afghanistan judiciary
authorities decide to
release prisoners, it is of
no concern to the United
States," Karzai said from
Turkey, where he is attend-
ing a regional summit.
Karzai had long
demanded that the U.S.
turn over the Parwan
Detention Facility to
Afghan authorities, a
process completed last
March after lengthy ne-
gotiations that centered
on American concerns
that some of the most


dangerous detainees
would go free.
The U.S. military
strongly condemned the
prisoner release, saying
some of those set free
were directly linked to
attacks that have killed
or wounded 32 U.S.
or coalition personnel
and 23 Afghan security
personnel or civilians.
The U.S. had argued for
the detainees to face trial
in Afghan courts, citing
strong evidence against
them from DNA
linking them to roadside
bombs to explosive
residue on their clothing.
However, Kabul said
there was insufficient
proof to hold them.


I WORLD NEWS BRIEFS


Letta to resign as
Italian premier

ROME (Bloomberg)
- Italy's Prime Minister
Enrico Letta will resign
Friday, bowing to pressure
from his party and possibly
clearing the way for a new
government led by Matteo
Renzi, his chief rival.
"I told the president
of the republic, Giorgio
Napolitano, of my intention
to go to the Quirinale
tomorrow to hand in my
resignation," Letta, 47, said
in an emailed statement.
The Quirinale is the presi-
dent's office in Rome.
The announcement ends
weeks of intra-party friction
that brought the 10-month-
old government to a near
standstill. Letta, 47, surren-
dered after the leadership
of his Democratic Party
voted in Rome to withdraw
its support. The resignation
gives Napolitano, 88, the
option of appointing a new
premier or dissolving the
legislature and calling snap
elections.
"Matteo Renzi is expect-
ed to take over as prime
minister," Nikolaus Keis, an
economist at UniCredit in
Munich, said in a note to
investors Thursday.


Belgian lawmakers Putin backs Egypt Syria strikes kill Biden to travel to Israeli soldiers kill
extend euthanasia army chief's run 400 so far this Chile, Dominican Palestinian man at
to children for president month in Aleppo Republic Gaza Strip border


BRUSSELS (AP) -
Belgian lawmakers
voted overwhelmingly on
Thursday to extend the
country's euthanasia law
to children under 18.
The law empowers
children with terminal
ailments who are in great
pain to ask to be put to
death by their doctor if
their parents agree and a
psychiatrist or psychol-
ogist certifies they are
conscious of what their
choice signifies.
It has wide public sup-
port, but was opposed by
some pediatricians and the
country's Roman Catholic
clergy.
Hans Bonte, a Socialist,
said no member of the
House hopes the law will
ever be made use of But
he said all Belgians, includ-
ing minors, deserved the
right to "bid farewell to life
in humane circumstances"
without having to fear they
were breaking the law.
The 86-44 vote
in the House, with
12 abstentions, followed
approval by the Senate in
December.


MOSCOW (AP)-
Russian President Vladimir
Putin on Thursday wished
Egypt's military chief victo-
ry in the nation's presiden-
tial vote, even though he
has yet to announce his bid
- a strong endorsement
signaling Moscow's desire
to expand its military and
other ties with a key U.S.
ally in the Middle East.
Putin appeared to be
capitalizing on a growing
move by Gulf nations -
particularly Saudi Arabia
- to move the Middle East
off its traditional reliance
on the United States.
Egyptian Field Marshal
Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi's visit
to Moscow comes amid
reports of a $2 billion
Egyptian arms deal with
Russia to be funded mainly
by Saudi Arabia and the
United Arab Emirates,
which is part of Egypt's
shift to reduce reliance on
the United States.
"The United States' influ-
ence is steadily waning in
the region for several years,"
said GamalAbdel-Gawad, a
political analyst at Cairo's Al-
Ahram Center for Political
and Strategic Studies.


GENEVA (AP) -The
United States and Russia
promised to try to break
the stalemate in Syria
peace talks, a U.N. media-
tor said Thursday, as Syrian
activists said government
shelling and airstrikes with
makeshift barrel bombs
killed about 400 people in
the country's largest city so
far this month.
A second round of peace
talks in Geneva has offered
a rare opportunity for con-
versation, but yielded little
more than acrimony, with
both the Syrian government
and opposition signaling
they believe negotiations
could be over. The violence
has escalated on the ground
and delegates in Geneva
have failed to even agree on
an agenda for the talks.
U.N.-Arab League
mediator Lakhdar Brahimi
said after meeting with
senior U.S. and Russian
officials Thursday that
they pledged to try help.
The bombings in Aleppo
are part of a campaign by
President Bashar Assad's
forces to wrest control of
neighborhoods that were
seized by rebels.


WASHINGTON (AP)
-The White House says
Vice President Joe Biden
will travel next month to
Chile and the Dominican
Republic.
Biden and his wife, Jill,
will visit the two countries
in the second week of
March.
In Chile, Biden will be
leading the U.S delegation
to the inauguration of in-
coming President Michelle
Bachelet. She's a former
political prisoner who
served as Chile's president
once before. Bachelet
was elected to return to
the job in December in a
landslide. She takes office
on March 11.
In the Dominican
Republic, Biden plans
to meet with President
Danilo Medina to discuss
bilateral issues and
regional cooperation.
Biden has been leading
an effort by the Obama
administration to increase
engagement with Latin
America. He traveled
last year to Colombia,
Panama, Mexico, and
Trinidad and Tobago.


GAZA CITY (LA Times)
- Israeli soldiers shot to
death a Palestinian man
near the Gaza Strip border
Thursday, the latest in a
series of deadly cross-bor-
der incidents, officials said.
Ashraf al-Qedra, a spokes-
man for the Health Ministry
in Gaza, said 26-year-old
Ibrahim Mansour was
shot in the head by Israeli
forces. Mansour died of his
injuries, al-Qedra said, and
another Palestinian man
was wounded in his right
foot.
A radio station run by
Hamas, the Islamic mil-
itant group that controls
Gaza, said the men were
collecting gravel with a
group of workers near the
border fence when Israeli
forces opened fire without
warning.
A spokeswoman for the
Israeli military said the
men had approached the
border and were tampering
with the security fence. The
spokeswoman, citing Israel
Defense Forces protocol,
said soldiers fired after
exhausting all other means
to disperse the group.

Lehigh's Bernard Edwards
torched the Pirates for 26 points,
including 12 of 13 from the free
throw line. The Lightning scored
the first six points of the second
half to open up a five point


advantage, and never trailed
thereafter.
"We just didn't come out in the
third quarter with the same inten-
sity, and I don't know why," Port
Charlotte coach Bill Specht said.
"The biggest thing that has haunt-

boxing out and rebounding. We
gave up too many easy offensive
rebounds and that's what cost us."

* BOYS BASKETBALL: Martin County 72, Charlotte 63


Tigers fend



off Tarpons


By GARY BROWN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
PUNTA GORDA-
Charlotte High School
hung right with visiting
Martin County for three
quarters before the
Tigers pulled away for
a 72-63 victory in the
Region 7A-3 quarterfinals
Thursday.
The Tarpons, who
finished the season
at 16-11, trailed 53-51
entering the final quar-
ter. But Martin County's
6-foot-5 center Traevis
Graham scored seven
of his 21 points to spark
the Tigers. Graham only
scored four points in the
first half but had 10 in
the third quarter.
"He did a pretty good
job getting inside for


shots," Charlotte coach
Tom Massolio said of
Graham. "He made some
nice shots and got some
rebounds. I'd say he was
the main difference in
the game. You've gotta
give them credit."
Charlotte stayed close
largely on the shooting of
senior Adrian Ivankovic,
who scored 22 points,
including four 3-point
field goals. He scored
nine of his points in the
first half as the Tarpons
trailed 31-29 going into
halftime.
Charlotte took ad-
vantage of some hasty
playmaking and shooting
by the Tigers in the first
half. Seniors Dwight and
Dwayne Reynolds both

Snowbird Classic

gets big boost


from Buckeyes


ByJOSH VITALE
SPORTS WRITER
When the Ohio
State team bus turned
onto Port Charlotte's
O'Donnell Boulevard
in early March, 2010,
then-Buckeyes coach Bob
Todd called his friend
Steve Partington to ask
him a question.
"Steve," he asked,
"where the (heck) are you
taking me to?"
A few minutes later,
Todd had his answer.
When the Hall of Fame
coach stepped off the
bus and looked at North
Charlotte Regional Park,
he picked up his phone
again and told Partington
he was looking at a "field
of dreams."
That was Ohio State's
first trip to Port Charlotte.
Four years later, the
Buckeyes have become
regulars at Charlotte
County's Snowbird

"This is awesome,"

this qualifies me for

Though the season

the top 16 eligible for
nationals.
Schnulle's feat is extra
special because of the

At the meet, he said,

Johnson leads




after first round


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES-
Dustin Johnson moved
down the coast of
California and brought
his game with him
Thursday in the Northern
Trust Open.
So did Jimmy Walker.
Johnson made six bird-
ies on a warm, sunny day
at Riviera for a 5-under
66, giving him a one-shot
lead when the opening
round was suspended by
darkness. Walker birdied
his last three holes and
was in the large group
at 67 that included
Francesco Molinari of
Italy and Torrey Pines
winner Scott Stallings.
Four days ago, Johnson
closed with a 66 in the
gray, cold weather of
Pebble Beach to finish
one shot behind Walker.
In conditions that could
not have been any
different and could not
have been any better -
he made birdie on all of


the par 5s at Riviera and
only had one bogey on
his card, at the long par-3
fourth.
Walker drove his RV
down from the Monterey
Peninsula, got up at
4:30 a.m. Wednesday to
appear on Golf Channel,
and then went right back
to work. He was in the
middle of the pack until
his tee shot on the par-3
16th settled just over a
foot from the cup.

Petterson leads women's
Australian Open: In Melbourne,
Australia, Norway's Suzann Pettersen
birdied her last three holes in a
6-under 66 to take the lead at Victoria
Golf Club.
Pettersen, winner of last year's
Evian Championships, had nine
birdies and three bogeys, holding off
a series of challengers led by Marion
Ricordeau of France.
The second-ranked Norwegian
made her season debut after missing
the LPGA Tour's opening event last
month in the Bahamas because of a
shoulder injury. She's in position to


take the No. 1 spot in the world from
Inbee Park with a victory or a solo
second-place finish.

Santos opens Africa
Open with a 62: In East
London, South Africa, Ricardo Santos
of Portugal fired a 9-under 62 for a
two-shot lead after the first round.
He had five birdies going out and
four birdies coming in for a flawless
opening round at East London Golf
Club.
In a four-way tie for second were
Denmark's Lucas Bjerregaard, Wales'
Rhys Davies, South Africa's Garth
Mulroy and England's Richard Bland,
who all shot 64s.
Americans Brinson Paolini and
John Hahn were among a group of six
players tied for sixth, three off Santos'
lead.
Santos was the 2012 rookie of the
year on the European Tour and has
a decent record in South Africa with
top-30 finishes in his last five events.
"I'm very pleased to make a run
like I did today"he said.'"I hit the ball
solidly from the tee and my putting
was all good. To shoot minus nine you
have to play awesome golf'."

He said he had no
idea how close the finish
would be. "I was just
trying to get to the line
as quickly as I could," he
said.
Schnulle produced his
record effort in just the
third indoor meet of the
season. He placed fifth
in the 800 (1:49.13) Jan.
25 at the Rod McCravy
Memorial.
He entered the season
optimistic because of his
training during the fall.
"I knew more what was
expected of me," he said.
"I feel like the experience
of last year has helped


me a lot. We have four
guys in the 800. We usu-
ally run in the same race.
It's really fun to have
your main competition
from your own team."
Schnulle said he is
scheduled to compete
in the Iowa State Classic,
which is today and
Saturday.
"It's a good middle-dis-
tance meet," he said.
During the outdoor
season, he said he'll com-
pete mainly in the 800
but may do a couple of
1,500 runs to determine
where his fitness level
is. He is also part of the
distance medley relay.

Rays trade Lobaton


Tampa Bay gets

top prospect

from Nationals

By MARC TOPKIN
TAMPA BAY TIMES
The Tampa Bay Rays
completed a four-player
trade Thursday that
sends extra catcher Jose
Lobaton, pitcher Felipe
Rivero and outfielder
Drew Vettleson to
the Nationals for
right-handed pitcher
Nate Karns.
Karns, 26, is ranked as
the Nationals' ninth-best
prospect according to
Baseball America. He
made three starts last
year for the Nats (0-1,
7.50) while going 10-6,
3.26 at AA Harrisburg.
He was a 12th-round
pick in 2009 out of Texas
Tech.
Lobaton started 76
games for the Rays last
season, but became
expendable when they
re-signed veteran Jose
Molina and traded for
Ryan Hanigan. Since he
is out of options, it is
was unlikely the Rays
could keep him since he
would have had to clear
waivers in order to be
sent to Triple-A. Lobaton
was to make $950,000.
The Rays paid what
looks to be a hefty sum
for Karns.
Vettleson was a first-
round compensation
pick in 2010 who hit .274
with 4 homers and 62
RBIs for advanced Class
A Charlotte last year
while Rivero was 9-7,


SNOWBIRD
FROM PAGE 1
And with the help of
Ohio State's continued
presence over that span,
the tournament has ex-
panded its reach dramat-
ically. When it was first
played in 2009, the field
consisted of only Division
III schools. In 2010, the
Buckeyes and two other
Division I schools joined.
When the sixth annual
Classic kicks off today, it
will boast 24 Division I
programs.
"It's a marketing tool
for Snowbird Baseball
in Charlotte County, for
Ohio State to come in to
play," Partington said. "It
gives us credibility, it gives
Charlotte County credi-
bility and it gives all of us
down here credibility. It's
a big, big deal when Ohio
State crawls in a plane to
come to Charlotte County
to play baseball."
This year, Ohio State
will be joined during the
tournament's opening
weekend by Division
I powers Connecticut,
Auburn and Indiana
State, giving them a
much higher quality of
opponent than they have
played in years past. It's
a far cry from the slate
they faced in 2010, when
they matched up against
Duquesne, St. Louis and
Fairleigh Dickinson.
That was when the
Classic was in its infancy,
before games were played
on five fields across
Charlotte County. Back
then, most of the fields
didn't have bullpens, and
there was barely enough
field space for all the
teams to practice.
But even with limited
facilities, Partington was
able to leverage the rela-
tionships he had formed
with coaches during his
career as an umpire and
begin to pitch Division I
schools on the merits of


Snowbird Baseball.
"I knew Steve Partington,
knew what a quality

3.40 in making 23 starts.
Rays executive vice
president Andrew
Friedman made it very
clear how much they
think of Karns in being
willing to give up three
players for him: "We feel
like he's got a chance
to be a really good
major-league starting
pitcher."
Friedman said Karns
is big, strong, durable
and talented, with a plus
fastball and breaking
ball and a vastly im-
proved changeup.
He said the Rays were
willing to bring Lobaton
to camp if there was no
deal, but it was not ideal,
and that it would have
been a distraction for
the team and Lobaton.
Lobaton posted a
farewell message on his
Twitter account:
"Rays fans: It is very
difficult to say Goodbye
to all of you since you
were always very sup-
portive of me.... Will
always cherish that.
Thanks for everything."
Friedman said the
Rays may have another
addition or two to the
spring roster, currently
at 63 (and with an open
spot on the 40-man
roster), as they are
always looking for more

person he was and knew
that if he was committed
to organizing something,
that it would be done
correctly," said Todd, who
coached the Buckeyes
from 1988 to 2010. "And
he approached me about
starting this tournament
on the fact that No. 1, he
would want Ohio State
because it's got a very
good reputation, and
secondly, the name would
attract other quality
opponents."
Ohio State attracted a
lot of local fans, too. Todd
said he remembers there
being 80-100 Buckeye
alums waiting to greet the
team at the Punta Gorda
Airport in 2010, and
current coach Greg Beals
- who took over after
Todd retired following the
2010 season-said there
were close to 50 members
of the Ohio State Alumni
Association tailgating
in the parking lot of the
hotel when the team
arrived in 2011.
"The Port Charlotte/
Punta Gorda area, the
alumni association that
comes out and sees our
guys at a game, and the
attendance that we get
at our games has been
great," Beals said. "The
hospitality, the facilities
and the people just make it
a must-return trip for us."
That commitment has
proved a huge factor for
the tournament. In Ohio
State's second year, the
Buckeyes invited Western
Michigan to play them in
Port Charlotte. In 2012,
Partington was able to
get Michigan, Michigan
State, Northwestern, and
Pittsburgh to partici-
pate. And in 2013, the
Snowbird Classic added
Iowa, Notre Dame and
West Virginia to that list.
This year, the tourna-
ment is bigger than ever.
Forty-five teams will
play games in Charlotte
County between tonight
and March 22, including
newcomers Auburn,


Boston College, UConn

some talk with free-

who could be signed to a
minor-league deal.
Karns, who will wear

on good feelings with it.
It's a new opportunity.
Not everybody gets to

about the facilities,"
Partington said. "And I
basically told him if it's
good enough for Ohio
State, it's good enough for
anybody."
Word of mouth like
that, especially from the
coaches at Ohio State,
has played a huge role
in Partington's ability to
expand the tournament

Newman, Truex,


take a snow day


By MARK LONG
ASSOCIATED PRESS
DAYTONA BEACH -
Snow made NASCAR
drivers Ryan Newman
and Martin Truex Jr.
no-shows at Daytona 500
media day.
Newman and Truex
missed the kickoff to
Speedweeks on Thursday
because a winter storm
and icy conditions af-
fected travel in the South
and East.
Newman posted a mes-
sage on his Twitter page
that included a photo of
his snow-covered farm
and several buffalo:
"Stuck in NC. Headed
out to check on Farm.
Buffalo are happy this
am."
The weather caused
several other NASCAR
drivers to alter travel
plans to Daytona
International Speedway.
David Gilliland and
David Ragan were
supposed to fly down
Thursday morning, but
instead of gambling on
being able to get to the
airport and take off with-
out any delays, opted to
drive Wednesday. They
got on the road before
the heavy stuff wreaked
havoc on roadways.
"If we left probably 30
minutes later, we would
have been in trouble
for sure," Gilliland said.
"There was a lot of stuff
happening. But luckily it
was all a couple of exits
behind us. We saw all
the ice, snow, the trees
breaking while we were
driving down 1-77 there."
Parker Kligerman also
ended up driving. But the
Sprint Cup rookie made a
rookie mistake by getting
a late start and didn't get
to Daytona until the wee
hours Thursday.
"We didn't get out 'til
the midst of the storm,"
Kligerman said. "We liter-
ally hit gridlock. ... We
had the car completely
iced over at one point.
We had to find a deicer.
It was a disaster. We got
stuck a couple of times.
There were four or five
overturned semis."
Some drivers and
teams arrived in Daytona
a day or two early to
avoid the chaos. Six-
time and defending
series champion Jimmie
Johnson, though, decid-
ed to chance it and travel
early Thursday.
He said the key was
moving his private jet
to Charlotte-Douglas
International Airport,
which was better
equipped to clear
runways.
"The trip from the
hangar to the runway
was pretty exciting,"
Johnson said. "They
hadn't plowed any of
that. I thought I was in
an off-road truck for a
while there, trying to get
out to the runway."
Aside from travel
troubles, here are five
things to know about
media day:


DAYTONA
SPEEDWEEKS
WHEN:Today-Feb. 23
WHERE: Daytona International
Speedway, Daytona Beach

SCHEDULE
Today: NASCAR Sprint Cup
Series practice
Saturday: Sprint Unlimited, 8
p.m. (Fox Sports 1)
Sunday: Daytona 500 quali-
fying, 1 p.m. (FOX)

Feb. 23: Daytona 500,1 p.m. (FOX)

Defending Danica: Several
drivers, maybe even most, defended
Danica Patrick. Seven-time NASCAR
champion Richard Petty said the
only way Patrick could win a Sprint
Cup race is if"everybody else stayed
home!' Patrick refused to fire back,
politely saying everyone is entitled
to an opinion. Her peers were more
outspoken. Hendrick Motorsports
teammate Dale EarnhardtJr. said
"it was a little rough on Danica"and
added that"she goes by a different set
of rules because of her gender, and
that's unfortunate. It seems like she's
always having to answer to something
like that, and that's a pain in her butt.
And frankly it's just got to get old'."

Return of the 3: The return of the
iconic No. 3, the famed number the
late Dale Earnhardt drove with Richard
Childress Racing, was a hot topic.
Childress'grandson, Austin Dillon,
will drive the black No. 3 for RCR.
Dillon handled the attention perfectly,
saying "the legend of Dale has lived
on for a long time and is going to
continue to live on forever. Dale
Earnhardt is not just famous because
of the number.'"Dale Earnhardt Jr.,
whose father died after crashing on
the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500,
said he's"quite comfortable with how
it's going down and I'm glad it's back'."

Stewart's rehab: Tony
Stewart's return to racing is down
to hours. The three-time NASCAR
champion has been out of a race car
since crashing at a sprint-car event
in Iowa last August and breaking his
right leg. Stewart missed the final 15
races of 2013. He has been cleared
to race and will be back in the car for
practice Friday. "It's been the slowest
offseason I've ever had;',"he said. "I'm
ready to get doing something again'."

Chase changes: NASCAR
drastically overhauled its Chase for
the Sprint Cup championship by
expanding the field, switching to a
knockout-style format and placing
more emphasis on winning. Johnson
welcomed the tweaks."I still think
the way you win a championship is
the same: you've got to win races,";' he
said. "When we look around at sports,
everything's changing. The Olympics
look far different than they used to.
The NFL is considering change. The
world is changing. Our viewership is
changing, so the sport has to change."

Gordon's future: Four-time
champion Jeff Gordon is talking
retirement. Gordon said he is prepared
to call it quits if he wins a fifth
championship. "Go out on a high
note;' said the 42-year-old Gordon,
who won titles in 1995,1997,1998
and 2001.

MEN'S SUPER COMBINED
Ted Ligety, who won this event in 2006 in
Turin, Italy, gets a chance to make his mark
for the U.S. team. And, of course, there is
always Bode Miller, who won the gold in
2010 in Vancouver. However, it's a very deep
field and the softening snow is making things
unpredictable.


WOMEN'S SKELETON
The expected showdown between Britain's
LizzyYarnold and Noelle Pikus-Pace met
expectations as they finished 1-2 after two runs
of the four run competition. Yarnold set a track
record and has a significant lead of almost a half
second. Pikus-Pace has been slowed by a back
injury.


JOSS CHRISTENSEN
AGE: 22
HOMETOWN: Park City, Utah
NOTES: Christensen wasn't
added to the team until after
winning the final qualifying
event less than two weeks
before the games.
Christensen has faced a series
of setbacks in recent years,
including the loss of his father
J.D. in August and microfrac-
ture surgery in his knee at the
end of 2012.


MEN'S FIGURE SKATING
It should be a great final day of men's compe-
tition in the free skate as the three best skaters
are fighting for podium spots. Yuzuru Hanyu of
Japan is first, followed by favorite Patrick Chan
of Canada and Javier Fernandez of Spain. Hanyu
became the first person ever to score more than
100 points in the short program.


* FREESTYLE SKIING:


Men's slopestyle skiing medalists, from left, Gus Kenworthy, silver, Joss Christensen, gold, and Nicholas Goepper, bronze, pose

A sweep achievement


Americans rule

new freestyle event

By EDDIE PELLS
ASSOCIATED PRESS
KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia
- A newly minted American
medalist was sharing his thoughts
- something about making
history when a certain song
ringing out from fans in the
stands stopped him midstream.
"The Star-Spangled Banner."
Yes, they were skiing in Russia.
But on a warm-and-sunny
afternoon that goes down as
the greatest in the history of a
young sport making its Olympic
debut, the slopestyle course was
All-American.
Joss Christensen, Gus
Kenworthy and Nick Goepper
swept the podium for the United
States on Thursday in slopestyle
skiing, each throwing down ver-
sions of their sport's triple-cork
jump to capture one of the rarest
triples: gold, silver and bronze.
It was only the third time
Americans have swept an event
at the Winter Games, and the
first since 2002, when a trio of
snowboarders in Utah did it in the
halfpipe to bring their sport into
the mainstream. The slopestyle
medalists were well aware of what
they'd accomplished in matching
that feat.
"We couldn't have asked for a
better way to debut this sport to
the world," Goepper said.
Christensen, 22, of Park City,
Utah, was the last add-on to the
American team, hitting his form
at just the right time after a six-
month period of heartbreak that
began when his father, J.D., died


* SPOTLIGHT:


Hybrid may favor Americans


Ligety, Miller are among those

to watch in super-combined


By ANDREW DAMPF
ASSOCIATED PRESS
KRASNAYA POLYANA,
Russia The men's
super-combined today
opens a stretch of three
Alpine skiing races in
three days at the Sochi
Olympics.
The women's su-
per-G is scheduled for
Saturday, followed by
the men's super-G on
Sunday.
If all goes according
to plan and there are
no warm weather-re-
lated postponements
- Monday will be an
off day for the Alpine


squads.
Defending super-com-
bined champion Bode
Miller has been terrific
in downhill training
- and less so in last
weekend's downhill race,
finishing eighth. The
American knows he's
going to have to turn
in a real strong first leg
today in order to have
some margin for error in
the slalom run.
"Obviously, I don't
have the same time in
the slalom this year or
the last five years as the
slalom guys, which is the
real disadvantage," said


the 36-year-old Miller,
who could become the
oldest Alpine medalist in
Olympic history.
Ted Ligety of the U.S.
won the combined
gold medal at the Turin
Games in 2006, back
when the event included
two slalom runs, in
addition to the downhill.
He also won the world
title in super-combined
last season, and he's tied
for the current World
Cup standings lead in
the discipline.
So he's setting his
sights high.
"I want to be able to
try to get on the podium
or win. I think that's well
within my grasp, if I ski
well," said Ligety, who's


from Park City Utah.
The newest ski star to
emerge in these games,
Austria's Matthias Mayer,
will seek a second
consecutive race victory
for the first time. That's
because he'd never fin-
ished first in 65 top-level
events until winning the
Sochi Olympic downhill
last weekend.
Although he didn't
train as he wanted
to ahead of Friday's
super-combined, what
with partying and media
obligations, that's OK.
"Of course, it was
a little bit exhausting
for me," he said with a
laugh. "But I feel good
now and I'm ready for
races."


GUS KENWORTHY
AGE: 22
HOMETOWN:Telluride, Colo.
NOTES: Kenworthy is a
dual-threat in freestyle skiing,
splitting his time between
slopestyle and halfpipe. He has
a string of podium finishes in
his career, but wasn't exactly
hot coming to Sochi. He
finished fifth at the X Games in
Aspen last month.


of a heart condition. Christensen
was traveling to New Zealand for
a contest when his dad died. He
landed, turned around and flew
back home.
"I hope he's looking down and
smiling, and I hope I made him
proud," Christensen said.
Kenworthy, 22, of Telluride,
Colo., has generated buzz at the
Olympics as a dog lover. He found
a stray mom and her litter of four
near a bus stop in the mountains
and has been tweeting photos of
himself with the dogs, making
arrangements to bring them back
to America.
"Kind of a fairy tale,"
Kenworthy said.
Goepper, 19, of Lawrenceburg,
Ind., grew up in hoops country,
but as a kid, he preferred bum-
ming rides to the 300-foot-high
ski resort nearby. He sold candy
bars and worked odd jobs to pay
for the start of his career.
"Wow, really?" Goepper said
when he learned about his place
in history. "It's crazy. I think it's
going to give the U.S. a lot more
confidence and it's going to get a


NICK GOEPPER

HOMETOWN: Lawrenceburg,
Ind.
NOTES: The gold medal
favorite coming in, Goepper
has a signature trick called
the "Screamin'Seaman"- a
two-flip, 3 twist jump while
crossing skis and grabbing one.
He pulled it off in the finals,
but his run wasn't quite clean
enough to beat Christensen.


lot of people really excited."
The first U.S. trio to sweep an
event was the 1956 men's figure
skating team. Five decades later,
Ross Powers, Danny Kass and J.J.
Thomas swept snowboarding in
the halfpipe in Salt Lake City. That
win was a much-needed highlight
for the host country only months
after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks
and a key moment in America's
transformation into a Winter
Olympics power.
The day and the course were
tailor-made for triple corks -
filled with sunshine that made
for forgiving, slushy snow on the
steeply angled jumps. It was so
warm that the other American in
the field, Bobby Brown, skied in
short sleeves.
A week ago, snowboarders
ripped those jumps as too
dangerous, but by Thursday, the
skiers called them a slopestyler's
best friend.
"This course is more than
big enough to do these tricks,"
Kenworthy said. "Everyone wants
an Olympic medal. It's a reason
worth sending it."


WOMEN'S AERIALS
This should come down as a battle between
China and Australia. Li Nina of China came back
from a knee injury to win the current World Cup
season. Teammate Xu Mengtao is the reigning
world champion. Danielle Scott and Lydia Lassila
of Australia should be the toughest competition.

U.S., Canada open men's
hockey play with wins: The
United States defeated Slovakia 7-1
and Russia topped Slovenia 5-2 in their
opening games of the preliminary
rounds of the men's ice hockey
competition, setting the stage for the
two powers to battle on Saturday.
Also, Canada defeated Norway 3-1
and Finland beat Austria 8-4. In the
women's tournament, Germany
defeated Japan 4-0 and Russia beat
Sweden 3-1. The Americans had the
day off.

Pikus-Pace sits second
in women's skeleton: Lizzy
Yarnold is halfway to the Olympic gold
medal. Noelle Pikus-Pace is right on her
heels. The World Cup leaders all season
are the leaders again halfway through
the women's skeleton competition
at the Sochi Olympics, with Britain's
Yarnold ahead of Pikus-Pace by 0.44
seconds after Thursday's first two runs
at the Sanki Sliding Center.
Yarnold, this season's World Cup
champion, finished two runs in 1
minute, 56.89 seconds. Pikus-Pace, of
Eagle Mountain, Utah, was second in
1:57.33, and Russia's Elena Nikitina was
a slightly surprising third, another 0.11
seconds off the pace. Katie Uhlaender is
fourth, one-tenth of a second off third.

Kowalczyk wins despite
injury: Justyna Kowalczyk of Poland,
skiing with a fractured foot, won
gold in the women's cross-country
10-kilometer classical race. Kowalczyk
led virtually all the way, finishing in
28 minutes, 17.8 seconds and beating
silver medalist Charlotte Kalla of
Sweden by 18.4 seconds. Therese
Johaug of Norway took bronze, 28.3
seconds behind. Also in the race,
Mathilde-Amivi Petitjean of Togo
became that nation's first competitor at
the Winter Olympics, finishing 68th.
Sadie Bjornsen (18th) was the top
American, joined by Sophie Caldwell
(32), Ida Sargent (34) and Holly Brooks
(35) finished

China emerges from
short track chaos: Li Jianrou
of China won gold in 500-meter short
track speedskating after all three of her
opponents in the final fell. Li's win in
the 500 keeps the Olympic title with
China. Injured teammate Wang Meng
couldn't defend the title she has won
at every Winter Games since 2002.
Arianna Fontana of Italy took the silver
and Park Seung-hi of South Korea
earned the bronze. Elise Christie of
Britain caused the first crash of the wild
final and was disqualified. American
Emily Scott did not advance past the
quarterfinals.

China strikes gold in
unlikely place: In the women's
1000-meter race, Zhang Hong pulled
off a stunning victory to give China its
first gold ever in Olympic speedskating.
Her time of1 minute, 14.02 seconds,
broke the track record and just missed
the Olympic mark set by Chris Witty
at the 2002 Games. Pre-race favorite
Ireen Wust took the silver and Margo
Boer the bronze, giving the Dutch a
dozen speedskating medals. Heather
Richardson (7th) and Brittany Bowe (8),
of Ocala, were the top Americans.


Bobsled hits, injures
worker: Olympic officials are trying
to determine why a worker on the track
used for sliding sports at the Sochi
Games was in the path of a speeding
bobsled that crashed into him, causing
two broken legs and a concussion.
A forerunning sled sent down the
track to make sure conditions were
suitable for two-man training crashed
into the worker Thursday at the Sanki
Sliding Center.

Sochi basks in heat
wave: The warm temperatures at
the Sochi Winter Olympics are forecast
to get even warmer today, and highs
Thursday were in the mid-60s.
IOC President Thomas Bach told
The Associated Press that the weather
is not posing a "major risk"to the
games, since organizers have stored
spare snow. The temperatures have
forced one schedule adjustment today.
The downhill portion of the men's
super-combined pushed up an hour,
before the sun has time to warm the
snow.

Storm impact spreads to north


Evgeni Plushenko of Russia, waves as he leaves the ice after
withdrawing from the men's figure skating competition due to
injury. A short time later, Plushenko announced his retirement.


Hanyu sets


points record


to lead favorite


Chan is within
striking distance;
top American
skater is sixth
By BARRY WILNER
ASSOCIATED PRESS
SOCHI, Russia-
Japan's Yuzuru Hanyu
made figure skating
history, and now can
chase even more of it.
He'll do so without
having to fend off a
challenge from another
record-setter, Russia's
Evgeni Plushenko.
Hanyu became the first
figure skater to break
the 100-point mark with
his performance in the
men's short program on
Thursday night at the
Sochi Games. He earned
101.45 points with a
playful, almost seductive
routine in which he
seemed to flow above the
ice.
"I was so surprised with
my score," Hanyu said.
"I didn't know I got over
100."
He shouldn't have been,
considering the speed,
sharpness, entertainment
value and total conviction
of his skating. He nailed
his two biggest jumps, in-
cluding a huge a quadru-
ple toe loop to open the
program, and his triple
lutz-triple toe combina-
tion was exquisite.
And then the fun
began.
He charmed the judges
with his facial expres-
sions, staring directly at
them with an inviting
smile during his intri-
cate steps and turns to
"Parisian Walkaways."
"For Yuzuru, that
was perfection," said
his coach, Brian Orser.
"That's as good as it gets."
Hanyu, 19, also won
the men's short program
in the team event and
is on quite a run with
wins in the Grand Prix
Final, Japanese cham-
pionships and his Sochi
achievements.
"I always had pressure.
I think I can have confi-
dence after those compe-
titions," he said.
While Hanyu was
soaring to a nearly
4-point lead over three-
time world champion
Patrick Chan of Canada,
Plushenko finished his
stellar career with another
injury.
The only figure skater
in the modern era to win
medals in four games,
including gold in the new
team event last weekend,
Plushenko hurt his back
in training Wednesday. He
gave it a go in warm-ups
before Thursday's short
program, but after falling
on a triple axel, he knew
he was done.
"I said to myself,
'Evgeni, you must skate.
It's two more days, short
and long program,'" the
31-year-old and 2006
Olympic gold medalist
said.


AP PHOTO
Jason Brown earned a season
high in the short program to
stand sixth entering today's
free skate. He is less than a
point out of third.
But he could not.
"I think it's God saying,
'Evgeni, enough, enough
with skating,'" added
Plushenko, who said he's
had 12 surgeries.
No man from an Asian
nation or Canada has
even won Olympic gold in
figure skating. Chan, who
was fifth in Vancouver,
put on his best Olympic
routine to stay within
sight of Hanyu.
"Four points in singles
men's is not much," Chan
said. "I like being in
second. I like being in the
chase. It's exciting to me."
Javier Fernandez of
Spain, a country that's
never won an Olympic
figure skating medal, was
third with 86.98.
Hanyu and Fernandez
are coached by Orser, who
guided South Korea's Yuna
Kim to women's gold in
Vancouver. Because they
skated consecutively,
Orser had to scramble to
change from a gray blazer
to a Spain team jacket,
but first he sprinted
over to congratulate his
Japanese student.
American Jason Brown
put on the performance
his young skating career
to finish sixth. He's within
the width of a skate blade
of third heading into
Friday's free skate.
"All year in this pro-
gram, in every competi-
tion I have gone to, I have
gotten a personal best,"
the 19-year-old Brown
said. "I didn't want to stop
in the Olympics."
Brown will be the
final skater Friday night.
Fernandez leads off the
last group of six, with
Takahashi second, Hanyu
third and Chan fourth.
Peter Liebers of Germany
is the other skater in the
final group.
The night began
with wild swings, from
Plushenko falling in war-
mups to U.S. champion
Jeremy Abbott crashing.
Abbott stayed down for
a lengthy period after his
fall, and just when coach
Yuka Sato was about to
open the entry door to
help him, he struggled to
his feet and continued his
program.
The four-time U.S.
champ nailed every
subsequent element to
wind up 15th.

Maryland (20-4, 8-3
Atlantic Coast Conference)
outscored Miami 15-6 in
the final 4:55 of the half.
Malina Howard's layup
with 3 seconds remaining
gave the Terrapins a 36-27

20 with the Atlantic Coast
Conference announcing it

for South Carolina to
beatVanderbilt 65-59 in
a rescheduled game from
Wednesday. It was eerily
quiet with only about
1,000 fans in attendance.

Still piecing



things together


By DAWN KLEMISH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
PORT CHARLOTTE
- Port Charlotte High
School began its season
without several key
players who were in other
sports, and injuries and
illness have combined to
force the Pirates to patch
holes in the lineup and
field any way it can. That
much was evident in a
14-3 defeat against North
Port on Thursday night.
Still, the Pirates (0-3)
were aggressive early and
it paid off when leadoff
hitter Rachel White was
struck by a pitch and
stole second on the next
play. White scored from
there on a fielding error
to put Port Charlotte up
1-0 in the first inning.
But North Port (3-1)
answered with five runs
in the bottom of the
frame on one hit. Leadoff
hitter Erin Durbin was hit
by a pitch and moved to
second on a Morgan Weir
walk. Kylie Bell's bunt
single loaded the bases
and Emily Sims' ground-
out drew first blood. The
next four runs scored
on a passed ball, a wild
pitch, and a pair of infield
groundouts to give the
Bobcats a 5-1 cushion.
Meanwhile, freshman
Alexis Dietz held her own
in her first varsity start,
allowing three hits and
an earned run over 5
innings.
"The first inning was
very, very crucial," North
Port coach Amanda
Wathen said. "(Dietz), it
was her first time starting
pitching and I had to see
what she could do before
we head into district play.
You could tell she was
nervous early but got
that out of the way and
pitched a great game."
Things got worse for
Port Charlotte from there.
Third baseman Kristy


I QUICK HITS


GIBSON, BOOZER
LEAD CHICAGO
PAST BROOKLYN
CHICAGO (AP) -Taj
Gibson scored 16 points
and Carlos Boozer
returned from an injury
to add 15 in the Chicago
Bulls' 92-76 victory over
the Brooklyn Nets on
Thursday night.
Boozer missed the last
three games because of a
strained left calf.
Joakim Noah had 14
points and 13 rebounds
for his fifth straight
double-double. The Bulls
(27-25) moved two games
above .500 for the first
time since they were 6-4
on Nov. 21. They have
won four of five.
Paul Pierce led
Brooklyn with 15 points
in the teams' final game
before the All-Star break.
The Nets are 24-27, going
14-6 since Jan. 1.
The Nets pulled
within three on Andrei
Kirilenko's 3-pointer with
6:29 left. D.J. Augustin
answered with a 3-point-
er to start a 9-0 Chicago
run.
The Nets' Joe Johnson
and the Bulls' Jimmy
Butler were called for
technical fouls and
Johnson for an offensive
foul after they exchanged
words and had to be
separated by their team-
mates with 5:57 left in the
third quarter. Johnson el-
bowed Butler on the play,
and Butler was restrained
by his teammates before
Johnson poked Butler's
face.
Deron Williams added
13 points for the Nets and


Johnson scored 11.


UP NEXT
Port Charlotte: at Venice,
Today, 7 p.m.
North Port: vs. Palmetto,
Tuesday, 7 p.m.


Lowe was struck in the
face by the ball on a
double-play attempt and
left the game. Two passed
balls allowed three runs
to score, and an Allyson
Stewart single and Weir
double in the gap all
came together to push
the Bobcats' lead to 10-1.
"We've been walking
too many people and
hitting too many people
in a game," Pirates coach
Rodney Taylor said.
"We're not getting it done
in the circle, and I think
because of that, everyone
on the field, their minds
are wandering, they're
lackadaisical and then
when the ball's hit to
them, they're on their
heels and not ready."
Maria Suarez started
for Port Charlotte and
lasted just 1/3 inning
before being replaced by
Emily McVety. The latter
was fresh off the Pirates'
regional semifinal bas-
ketball team and had one
practice under her belt
but pitched the remain-
ing 3 2/3 innings. She
allowed five hits, walked
five and struck out one.
North Port added four
runs in the fourth to force
Port Charlotte into a
score-or-forfeit situation
and although the Pirates
mustered a pair of runs in
the fifth, they didn't push
across the necessary four
to avoid the mercy.

CHARLOTTE

DISTRICT: 3A-11
COACHES: Jerry Voss and Chris George
LAST YEAR: District champions, fifth in
region.
KEY LOSSES: Ryan Shine, pole vault; Jon
Ahrens, discus; Chris McGill, shot put;
Connor Quinn, distance.
KEY RETURNERS: Isaiah Noel, hurdles, Sr.;
Devin Quinn, sprints, Jr.; Marshall Dillon,
distance, So.
OUTLOOK: The Tarpons lost a lot of
dependable points-earners from last year in
Shine, Quinn and the throwers Ahrens and
McGill. In their place, Charlotte needs others
to step up. Noel and Quinn are the top
hurdler and sprinter on the squad and need
to step up in order to maintain their place in
regionals and beyond. Dillon is expected to
improve off a solid sophomore season and
will lead the distance runners.


CHARLOTTE

DISTRICT: 3A-11
COACHES: Jerry Voss and Chris George
LAST YEAR: District champions, sixth in
region.
KEY LOSSES: Jensen Moore, thrower; Amber
Quinn, sprinter;
KEY RETURNERS: Julia Fowlie, pole vaulter,
Sr.; Jenny D'Alessandro, thrower, Sr.; Assita
Toure, hurdler, Sr.; Ayana Hodges, sprints, Sr.
OUTLOOK: The Tarpons have a good founda-
tion with defending state champ Fowlie and
three-time state point-winner D'Alessandro.
Toure, who was a surprise state qualifier
after taking up the hurdles for the first time
last season, should improve. There are more
question marks after that. Hodges starts the
season injured, but hopes to be recovered
for the second half of the season. Senior
Dani Young and junior Michaela Flowers
should pace the team's distance runners.


FOUR TO WATCH CI


IBSEN MARCIAL
North Port Junior
The last time we saw Marcial, he
claimed a regional championship at Leto
High School in the Region 4A-2 meet last
spring (he skipped the state meet). What
can he do for an encore? We're all waiting
to see.


TYLER FISHER
Port Charlotte -Junior
The Pirates will be expecting a lot from
its distance runners and Fisher is the best
of the bunch. He could make a charge to
the state meet the way Cody Atkinson did
two years ago.


JENNY D'ALESSANDRO
Port Charlotte -Senior
She has three top-five finishes in the
state meet in the discus so far at Charlotte.
The only things she hasn't done is break
the school record in the event and win a
state championship. Stay tuned.


HALEY BLEM
Lemon Bay Junior
In her first season running track, she
went to the state meet and placed ninth
in the 800. A top-five finish this season in
that event wouldn't be out of the question.


IN THE SPOTLIGHT !


Cousins attack the hurdles


Charlotte pair

share love of event
By ROB SHORE
SPORTS WRITER
PUNTAGORDA -As
Charlotte High School's
hurdlers circled the track doing
drills two days before the
Tarpons' preseason meet, the
voice boomed over the wind.
"Get your hurdle form down!"
called the shouts. "Attack it!"
A few minutes later, it blared
again.
"Reach for your foot when
you get over (the hurdle)!"
It wasn't the voice of Tarpons
hurdles coach Wade Taylor or
even that of sprint coach Jerry
Voss. It was senior Isaiah Noel,
offering some guidance to his
fellow hurdlers.
Noel will need to follow every
bit of his own advice as he tries
to qualify for the state meet this
season, something he has never
done.
"It's pretty important to me,"
Noel said. "It's my last year, so
finishing it off by making it to
states would be the cherry on
top."
Last season, Noel had to
settle for watching his cousin
Assita Toure qualify for the state
meet in the 100-meter hurdles,
when she finished third in the
Region 3A-3 meet.
Toure moved up three seeds
in the Region 3A-3 finals,
qualifying with a time of 15.66
seconds.
It was a special moment for
Toure, who lost her grand-
mother the day before.
"Before I raced, I prayed and
asked her to watch over me,"
Toure said. "When I qualified, I
was so happy."
But the two cousins don't
have much in common as


DESOTO COUNTY

DISTRICT: 2A-11
COACH: Darrell Nicklow
LAST YEAR: Fourth in district.
KEY LOSSES: Nykemis Pelham, 400; Dequan
Richardson, sprinter.
KEY RETURNERS: Tajahs Jackson, sprints,
Jr.; Parker Brown, high jump, Jr.; Lisandro
Cisneros, distance, So.
OUTLOOK: With DeSoto County, there has
never been a problem finding athletes. The
question sometimes has been getting them
onto the track. The Bulldogs have a good
start with sprinter Jackson, who finished
ninth in the state in the 100 and can go
faster. High jumper Brown was a regional
qualifier last season, and the Bulldogs are
optimistic about their 3,200-meter relay,
behind sophomore Cisneros. DeSoto County
has a good foundation but needs numbers.


DESOTO COUNTY

DISTRICT: 2A-11
COACH: Tracy Hay
LAST YEAR: Seventh in district.
KEY LOSSES: Tia'onne Townsend, sprinter;
Maribel Munoz, hurdles.
KEY RETURNERS: Ladeja Dennis, middle
distance, Sr.
OUTLOOK: It's usually a struggle for
numbers at DeSoto County and this season
seems no different. Dennis shows promise
in the middle distance and is one of the few
known commodities. The rest of the team
will need some time (and early-season)
meets to develop.


Isaiah Noel practices his hurdling during a recent workout at Charlotte High
School. Noel, a senior, has set his sights on qualifying for the state meet.


athletes. Noel has a low,
compact frame and he clears
the hurdles nimbly. Toure
has a taller frame and she
bounds well over the hurdles
- perhaps going too high over


LEMON BAY

DISTRICT: 2A-11
COACH: Joe Casale
LAST YEAR: Seventh in district.
KEY LOSSES: Joe Lucia, high jump; Tim
Holloway, thrower; Lucas Sparks, sprinter.
KEY RETURNERS: Nick Tieu, middle
distance, Sr.; Austin Hirschy, sprints, Sr.;
James Harrison, distance, Sr.; Garrett
Sweeterman, hurdles, So.
OUTLOOK: The Mantas'boys squad hasn't
had the same quality as the girls in recent
years, and it doesn't help that two of their
top postseason points-earners graduated:
high jumper Lucia and thrower Holloway.
Tieu has a chance to do some damage in
the 800. If Sweeterman improves, he could
be in the mix among area hurdlers. The
Mantas are expected to be stronger in the
sprints with several football players out for
the team.


LEMON BAY

DISTRICT: 2A-12
COACH: Joe Casale
LAST YEAR: Sixth at state meet, third at
regionals, second in district.
KEY LOSSES: Nicole Mis, distance; Anna
Fetzer, jumps.
KEY RETURNERS: Sydni Ogilvie, Sr.,
distance; Abby Weinfeld, So., distance; Haley
Blem, Jr., distance; Ocie Flowers, So., high
jump.
OUTLOOK: Ogilvie, Weinfeld and Blem
continue to improve as certain point-win-
ners in most meets, although the loss of
Mis is a major setback. There could be more
balance in the squad this season. Lemon
Bay has a pair of solid hurdlers, Marisabel
Rodriguez and Nikki Lenard, who could
make the next step after being regional
qualifiers last season. Flowers comes back as
a defending champion in the high jump last
season as a freshman.


them.
They even have different
stories of how they got into
hurdles. When Voss approached
Noel as a freshman about
joining the track team, Noel


NORTH PORT


DISTRICT: 4A-8
COACH: Tony Miller
LAST YEAR: Region and district champion.
KEY LOSSES: Ro'Derick Spears, hurdler;
Cody Janski, sprints; Robensen Saintard,
sprints; Luke Hogue, high jump.
KEY RETURNERS: William Glesge, thrower,
Jr.; Gevon Rodney, pole vault, Sr.; Leonard
Faison, sprinter, Sr.; Ibsen Marcial, high
jumper, Jr.
OUTLOOK: The Bobcats could come back to
the pack after the graduation of Spears and
three-quarters of their 400-meter relay. But
Faison might have been the quickest on that
relay; Glesge should be solid in the throws
and Marcial will try to defend his regional
high jump crown (Marcial's brother Evenson
returns as well). Also, North Port had a 3,200-
relay team that could get better. Miller thinks
this could be a more balanced team than the
one that won the region last season.

NORTH PORT

DISTRICT: 4A-8
COACH: Phu Nguyen.
LAST YEAR: Second in district, 18th in
region.
KEY LOSSES: Sierra Jennings, jumps; Amber
Thomas, hurdles; Shayla Fortuno, long
sprints; Julie Schelm, middle distance.
KEY RETURNERS: Kendra Pinter, pole vault,
Sr.; Jasmine Banks, jumps and thrower, Sr.;
Judley LaRoche, sprinter, Sr.
OUTLOOK: The Bobcats should be the bene-
ficiary of a young cross country squad that
finished fifth at the state meet. Freshman
Maddi Krstec was the star of that group,
but is running the 400 and 800 she has
already unofficially broken the school record
in the 800. LaRoche is a returning district
champion in the 100, so the Bobcats will
not be only about the kids. Banks could be a
point-earner in the jumps and throws.


agreed, but only if he could run
hurdles.
"It just enticed me from the
beginning," Noel said. "It just
looks fun."
On the other hand, Toure
almost got dragged into hurdles
kicking and screaming.
"I didn't ever want to hurdle,"
she said with a laugh. "But
Isaiah told me, 'Just try it, you'll
like it. If you don't like it, you
can go back to sprints.'"
Toure paused.
"Now I want to do it when I
go to college," she said. "I can't
imagine not doing it."
Noel didn't match his cousin's
performance at the regional
meet, faltering out of the blocks
in the 110 hurdles and not
making the final in the meet.
It's a performance that still
bothers him a little bit. But he's
using it as motivation now.
"Every now and then when
I get tired, I think about how
I was so close, but so far," he
said.
Taylor thinks both have
state meet talent in them, it's
just a matter of coaxing it out.
The area where both need to
improve isn't complicated -
speed, especially between the
hurdles.
And Toure, as a hurdling
newcomer, still needs to
improve her form.
"For hurdling, that's every-
thing," Taylor said.
Improving their form will cut
down their time, and Noel has a
time in mind he'd like to reach,
but that's secondary to his real
goal.
"I want to try to get down to
certain times," Noel said. "But
whatever I have to get to states."

| PORT CHARLOTTE |


DISTRICT: 3A-11
COACH: Tommy Henry
LAST YEAR: Region and district champion.
Fourth in district, 17th in region.
KEY LOSSES: Chale McLeod, sprints.
KEY RETURNERS: Tyler Fisher, distance,
Jr.; Anthony Dieujuste, hurdles, Sr.; Paulsin
Heitter, Sr.
OUTLOOK: With the graduation of last
year's 400-800 standout Chale McLeod, this
year's Pirates'squad is just about building
up from where they were. Dieujuste is a
small improvement in the hurdles from
challenging for a place at state. Fisher looks
to be contender in the long distances, and
Nick Dunakey should help there, too. The
sprints should be entertaining with burners
lan Tyler, Heitter and Anthony Stephens
tearing up the track.


PORT CHARLOTTE

DISTRICT: 3A-11
COACH: Bethany Heslam
LAST YEAR: Second in district, fifth in
region.
KEY LOSSES: Cameo Clayton, thrower;
Arielle Chase,jumper.
KEY RETURNERS: Michelle Atherley,
hurdler and high jump, jr.; Milany Quiles,
sprinter, sr.
OUTLOOK: Atherley is a force of nature -
she came out of nowhere as a sophomore
to become the area's dominant hurdler and
took fourth in the state in the high jump.
If she improves, there is almost no limit on
what she could do. Quiles was a regional
qualifier in the 100 and could add to that in
her senior season. Big things are expected
out of freshman Brittany McGivern, who led
the Pirates'cross country squad in the fall.

27 seconds to play left the
Warhawks gym in relative
quiet.
But when Seminole's
Connor Frain hit a
go-ahead 3-pointer on a
dish from double-teamed
point guard Marco
Behori, it got louder in a
hurry.
Frain's 3-pointer
with 3.2 seconds left
proved the difference as
Seminole defeated North
Port 60-57 in the Region
7A-3 quarterfinals. It was
all the more disheart-
ening after the Bobcats
forced Behori to give
up the ball in the final
seconds.
The Bobcats rallied
from 12 points down in
the second half.
"I told the guys we were
going to go out there
like there was no tomor-
row," North Port coach
Travis Slanger said. "It's
tournament basketball.
Unfortunately, we came
up short, and there is no
tomorrow."
In the final seconds, the
Bobcats' double-teamed
Behori, forcing him to
the left sideline as the
clock ticked down. But
the junior guard whipped
a pass to Frain a step
behind the top of the arc,
and he hit the 3-pointer
as the gym roared its
approval.
'Actually, in our last
game, I hit one just like
that at the end of the
third quarter," Frain said.
"But not a game-winner."
Well, he can add that to
his resume now.
The Warhawks (20-3)
will move on to the
regional semifinals to face
Palmetto, a 69-48 winner
over East Lake. Behori
led Seminole with 18
points, repeatedly hurting
the Bobcats with quick
slashes to the basket.
Barber scored 18 points
to lead the Bobcats (21-6),
14 of them in the fourth

The Bobcats had
jumped to an 11-0 lead,
opening the contest by
hitting 5 of their first
7 shots as North Port's
halfcourt defense gave
Seminole problems.
But Seminole started to
give North Port fits when
it switched from man
defense to a 1-3-1 zone
that pressured the ball
after crossing halfcourt.
The Bobcats turned the
ball over 15 times in the
first half, largely due to
that pressure.
"I was surprised to be
honest, we worked on
that," Slanger said. "We
saw it a bunch this year."

Bay High School tried
to run with Mariner in
its Region 5A-3 quarter-
final on Thursday, and
it played right into the
Tritons' hands.
Junior Rodney Hunter
scored 34 points as the
Tritons blew the game
open in the opening
minutes to cruise to a
72-43 victory.
Mariner (20-8) will trav-
el to play Sebring, which
beat Cape Coral 63-45.
The game was almost a
repeat of a regular-season

Mariner won 81-54.
Mariner forced the Manta

TARPONS

got inside for baskets for
the Tarpons and did a
good job on the boards
in the first half. Senior
Tristan Erdman provided
most of the offensive
spark for the Tigers in the
second quarter, scoring
eight of his 11 points
including two 3-pointers.
The Tarpons tied it
at 34-34 on a basket by
Dwight Reynolds early in
the third quarter and the
Charlotte crowd came
alive. But the Tigers were
able to hold off Charlotte
and win with a strong
fourth quarter.
Besides Ivankovic,
Dwight Reynolds had 15
points. Nick Montoya
added 10. Terrell Mabins
scored 17 points for the
winners.
The Tarpons lose seven
seniors to graduation,

of the offense this season.

Lemon Bay was able
to tread water in the
second quarter with the
help of Joseph Garza, but
couldn't control Hunter,
who scored 20 points in
the first half and gave his
team a 44-22 halftime
lead.
"The guys did a good
job executing, getting
easy buckets and getting
into the press," Mariner
coach James Harris said.
"They had a hard time
matching up with Hunter
inside and out."
Mariner built its lead in
the second half as Hunter
continued to score
easy baskets and junior
transfer Quameek Shields
came off the bench and

points, including three
bulls-eyes from behind

"I was impressed with
Quameek coming off the
bench. He gave us a spark
before the half with a
basket and an assist, then
got hot in the second
half," Harris said.
The Tritons got the
lead above 35 early in the
fourth quarter, forcing
a running clock for the
remainder of the game.
Hunter said it was sit-
uation where the Tritons
dictated the tempo, and
either keep up or get out
of the gym.
"The way our team is
set up, we have to play a
fast-paced game. If you
play fast against us, you're

Hunter said. "The more

couldn't keep the mo-

HERALD PHOTO BY PAMELA STAIK


Just east of the interactive fountain at Laishley Park are hundreds of
brick pavers, each engraved with personalized messages that were
paid for as part of a fundraiser for TEAM Punta Gorda. Three contain a
special message "W'ill you marry me, Michelle?"

Marriage proposal offers


By PAMELA STAIK
PGH EDITOR
There's no shortage of people who
are proud to say they love Punta Gorda,
and, as a result, they have no problem
supporting TEAM Punta Gorda's initia-
tive to sell and engrave bricks, which
are on placed on prominent display in
various pathways throughout the city.
In fact, hundreds of people have tak-
en up the call to purchase the pavers,
with most of the 287 engraved bricks
laid in Laishley Park dedicated in
honor of the community, passed loved
ones, veterans and first responders.
While each message is special in its


own right, none have quite the ring to
them as a set of three pavers placed to
the right of the interactive fountain at
Laishley Park. For in this place, near
where sopping-wet children come
to splish and splash in the summer
sun, lay three bricks with one very
special message: "Will you marry me,
Michelle?"
A love story begins

coming for high school sweethearts
Michelle Bates and Nick Monaghan,
now 23 and 24 respectively, who met
during their senior year at Riverhead


legacy of love
High School in Long Island, N.Y The
two had never met, and, with the help
of a last-minute schedule change,
ended up in the same marine biology
classroom, where they instantly hit it off.
It was mid-year when the two started
dating, and, by graduation in June
2008, they were planning on a big
move to Florida, where they would
start the rest of their lives together, first
in Sarasota, then in Port Charlotte.
But it wasn't until 2011, when Nick
attended the Southwest Florida Public
Service Academy in Fort Myers, that
he started to focus his attention on the

Cotillion hosts annual Winter Snow Ball

HERALD PHOTOS BY BETSY WILLIAMS


Season II students with the Charlotte Harbor Chapter of the National League of Junior Cotillions attend the annual Winter Snow Ball/Instructional
Dinner. The young ladies were dressed in long white ball gowns, white gloves and heels; the young gentlemen wore their best suits. Following
their class photo, the couples marched around the grounds of the Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club in Charlotte Harbor before going through the recep-
tion line and seated for their formal four-course meal.


Taylor Morris and Brandon Skavroneck dance the night away.


Taylor Gagnon spins his dance partner, Gina

PROPOSAL: Port Charlotte couple's engagement immortalized with three bricks


FROM PAGE 1
word "forever."
"My attitude on life kinda changed
at that point," Nick, now a deputy with
the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office,
said. "It pretty much came down to
me wanting to come home from work
and wanting to tell her about my day
and having her tell me about her day.
She was the one I wanted to be with,
to talk to." This feeling grew stronger
when he settled into his job as a bailiff
at the Charlotte County Justice Center
in Punta Gorda.
As the years passed, Nick continued
to think of the future and how he
would eventually propose to Michelle,
who works as a supervisor at Kohl's
and is a student at State College of
Florida.
"I really thought throughout our
entire relationship of different ways
of how to propose," he said. "I kinda
wanted something to be there forever.
I wanted something that would have
a lasting memory, something we can
relive any time we want."
And that's when he decided to put it
in writing permanently.

Laying down
the proposal plan
In October 2013, Nick started
making calls on how he would put
his engagement plans into action.
Originally, he had hoped to install
engraved bricks along the pathway at
Marina Jacks, a regular walking spot
for the couple when they first moved
to Sarasota. When that idea didn't
pan out, Nick got in touch with
North Port engravers Tom Lewin and
son-in-law Mel Wilmoth.
Wilmoth remembers when his
father-in-law took the phone call and
how urgent and excited Nick was to
find the perfect place to propose.
"This was my first," said Wilmoth.
"It's kinda neat. We are usually only
doing people who have passed, so
it was really nice to do something
positive."
Since the engravers work exclu-
sively with TEAM Punta Gorda's
paver project, it wasn't long before
Suzanne McCormick, chair of TEAM's
Beautification Committee, got the
call.


HERALD PHOTO BY PAMELA STAIK
With the help of engraved bricks, Nick Monaghan proposed to high school sweetheart Michelle
Bates at Laishley Park on Dec. 13, 2013.


"Of course, I loved the idea,"
McCormick said. "I just thought,
'Oh, this is exciting.'"
TEAM Punta Gorda sells the
four-by-eight-inch engraved bricks
for $100 a piece, or three for $250
and five for $400. The money raised
through the paver project supports
the beautification efforts of the
group, and they can be ordered
online at www.teampuntagorda.org.
To date, Nick is the second groom to
propose with one of the pavers, and
the first to go public with the story.
"He was very active in the whole
process," McCormick said. "When we
finally had the pavers engraved and
he decided where to put them down,
he came out and watched."
Once the plans were in motion,
Nick called Michelle's father to ask
for his blessing. Little by little other
people were let in on the big secret,
including fellow employees at the
court house and what seemed like
Michelle's entire family.

She said 'Yes'
A few weeks prior to the big day,
Michelle borrowed Nick's truck,


where she stumbled upon a ring
receipt. With Christmas and their
sixth anniversary on the horizon, she
kept the secret to herself, expecting a
proposal at any time.
Despite her knowledge of the ring
and the amount of people in the
know about the engagement plans,
Michelle truly had no idea what
would unfold on the afternoon of
Dec. 30, just six days short of the
couple's sixth anniversary.
In fact, Michelle didn't even notice
the bricks as she strolled through the
park with her longtime love, focusing
more on the dinner the two were
scheduled to have with her sister,
Deborah, and her boyfriend, Matt
Suprina, who were visiting from New
York.
"She actually passed right by
them," Nick said with a laugh. "So
I pointed to them and said, 'That's
crazy, look at that.'"
"As soon as I saw it, I knew it was
for me," Michelle recalled.
The accompanying photos do
a great job of summing up what
happened next. Nick got down on
one knee, and Michelle covered her
mouth in shock as he placed the ring


PHOTO PROVIDED BY MATT SUPRINA
Michelle Bates reacts with shock as longtime
love Nick Monaghan gets down on bended
knee a few bricks away from three inscribed
with the big question: "W'Nill you marry me,
Michelle?"
on her finger.
"I was so shocked," she said. "I
didn't think he would come up with
something so unique. I wasn't so
surprised about the ring, but the
proposal definitely that was a
surprise. I definitely wasn't expecting
something like this."
Even though "she went snooping,"
Nick was thrilled with how their
engagement went, and loves how it
will not only be something they can
relive time and time again, but that
it offers a legacy of love the whole
community can enjoy.
"I honestly couldn't have picked
a better place or a way to propose,"
Nick said. He was quick to add there
are no more surprises up his sleeves
for the rest of the year.
The future Mr. and Mrs. Monaghan
are planning a wedding in either
November 2015 or March 2016.

Outdoor adventure leads to 55 years of marriage


By DELORES SAVAS
HERALD CORRESPONDENT
When Eugene "Gene" Broecker and
Joyce signed up for a camping trip
in the Adirondacks sponsored by an
Adult Lutheran group, little did they
know that this trip would lead to an
adventure of their lifetime their own
55-year adventure.
"Joyce was assigned to me as my
partner on a canoe trip. When I saw
how well she carried the back end of
the canoe I was impressed," Gene said.
"We started to date. I was an insurance
agent at the time and she asked me for
a policy. I told her she would have to
join the Lutheran church, as I was an
agent for the church. She said she liked
the church and joined and I sold her a
policy. Joyce still has the policy."
They were married in Schenectady,
N.Y., in 1959, and settled down. They
raised one son, Bill, and are grand-
parents of two boys. Gene served two
years in the Army and attended the
University of Buffalo.
Joyce has a degree in engineering
and was a math major from Ursuline
College in Pennsylvania. That led
her into the field of atomic energy.
She worked as assistant engineer aid
worker for General Electric in the office
of Admiral Hyman G. Rickover on the
Sea Wolf submarine project.
"I still remember I had to do all my
calculations, pressing in one number at
a time on a Monroe calculator. We did
not have the top-of-the-line instru-
ments that are used today," Joyce said.
The Broeckers relocated to Lafayette,
Ind., where Gene taught Life Insurance
Lessons for 35 years at Perdue
University. However, it was not all work
and no play. New adventures were
always part of their married life.
"We travelled all over the world,
to Jerusalem and followed the path
that Jesus walked, and went to Egypt,


Germany, Paris, and Portugal. We
flew over to England on the Concord
SST and came back on the Queen
Elizabeth," Joyce said.
Retirement came in 1995 for the
Broeckers; they moved permanently to
Port Charlotte in 2012.
"We had been coming here for vaca-
tions and holidays since 1967. Joyce's
mother owned the house we now live
in. Once she passed, she left it to us.
We love this area no mowing and no
snow to shovel." Gene said.
Now at their young age of 82, they
have kept in shape by going to the
Cultural Center three days a week.
"It keeps us going," Joyce said.
"The Broeckers are a great couple we
enjoy having them come here," said
Ted Robedee, manager of the Health
Center.
Other hobbies such as fishing and
golf are part of their lives. Joyce is an
excellent embroiderer; their home is
decorated with many of her artistic
projects.
They also work as a team on puzzles.
Joyce finishes them and Gene frames
the puzzle when completed.
What has held the marriage together
for so many years?
"It is his sense of humor. He makes
me laugh and to me he is easy to get
along with," Joyce said.
Gene was sentimental.
"I often call things the way I see
them. It gets me in a lot of trouble. I
don't know how she puts up with me.
She is good for me and is delightful.
There is not a better person. She is the
cause of this working." Gene said.
So what did they do on their
anniversary last month?
"We are not party people. We spent a
quiet evening at home exchanged cards
and had a nice supper." Gene said.
After 55 years of marriage, a quiet
night shared together sustains the
adventure started long ago.

Pirates lose to Tarpons at Keller Classic 39-30


By STEVE KNAPP
HERALD SPORTS WRITER

With an early Saturday morning
game against Charlotte at the Wally
Keller Basketball Classic, Pirate JV girls
basketball Coach Danny Zarzutzki did
everything he could to prepare the girls
for a tough battle.
"I gave them yesterday off and told
them to get a good dinner and get to
bed early. Then get up early and have
a good breakfast and get here early so
they wouldn't be shaking the cobwebs
out during the game. They were fo-
cused and ready to go," said Zarzutzki.
Maybe the Pirates should have slept
overnight at the gym, as they got off to
a slow start. They fell behind 19-9 at
the half with KameiraWesley picking
up seven of the Pirates' points. She
finished with a game high 18 points
including a nice 5-6 performance from
the free throw line.
The Pirates outscored Charlotte in
the second half, but the 10-point hole
at half time was too deep to crawl out of.
"Charlotte shot the ball better than
any team we played all season. A major-
ity of their points came from the outside


on 15-foot jumpers," said Zarzutzki.
Defensively, the Pirates looked pretty
good. The forced long shots were
due partly to the defensive play of
Shanice Henry who gobbled up a lot of
rebounds. Henry won the "Player of the
Game" award for the Pirates.
"Her post defense was fantastic,
which is why they took a lot of outside
shots. She probably got 20-25 re-
bounds, which kept them from scoring
60 points. I told our team that our best
defender will get a lot of playing time
and she is proof of that," said Zarzutzki.
Henry was surprised to win the
award. "I really didn't think I should
have gotten the award. Kameira
(Wesley) should have gotten it, she is
such a hard worker."
The award shows how important
defense is to a team.
Wesley said, "I need to keep my head
in the game and not get disappointed
when we fall behind. I just need to get
better in my shots."
As far as playing early in the day, Aida
Alverado said, "It's hard getting up early
but it's exciting to get up and see your
team and get to play a game, so that's
pretty fun."


Port Charlotte's
defense was
strong as
Rachael Living-
ston (14) and
Sam Hagerty
put pressure
on the Tarpons'
Angelina Griffin
in the 39-30
loss.

PROPOSING
TO BUILD A LIFE TOGETHER BRICK BY BRICK
BY PAMELA STAIK, PGH EDITOR


here's no shortage of people who
are proud to say they love Punta
Gorda, and, as a result, they have
no problem supporting TEAM Punta
Gorda's initiative to sell and engrave
bricks, which are placed on prominent
display in various pathways throughout
the city.
In fact, hundreds of people have tak-
en up the call to purchase the pavers,
with most of the 287 engraved bricks
laid in Laishley Park dedicated in honor
of the community, passed loved ones,


veterans and first responders.
While each message is special in its
own right, none have quite the ring to
them as a set of three pavers placed to
the right of the interactive fountain at
Laishley Park. For in this place, near
where sopping-wet children come to
splish and splash in the summer sun,
lay three bricks with one very special
message: "Will you marry me,
Michelle?"

PUNTA GORDA


John R. Wright


John R. Wright is president ofthe
Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce.

CONTACT THE
PUNTA GORDA CHAMBER
For more information about events listed in this
column, contact the Punta Gorda Chamber of
Commerce at 941-639-3720 or visit its website
at www.puntagordachamber.com. While on the
chamber's website, don't forget to sign up for the
"Friday Facts" newsletter.


people often ask what the benefits
of being a member of the Punta
Gorda Chamber of Commerce
are, as well as what impact a chamber
can make on their business. I thought it
would be a good idea to address some of
the answers in my column this week.
First of all, each chamber is different,
so don't assume that what one chamber
does will be done by another. A chamber
should be judged by its interaction
with its members, the participation of
its membership and what it offers its
members by way of paths to growth.
The Punta Gorda Chamber is unique
in this region, as it is one of the very few
that has undertaken and continues to
add events that offer both a commer-
cial and touristic benefit to the entire
community. We firmly believe that Punta
Gorda is a jewel that should be shared
with as many people as possible.
The chamber's Wine and Jazz festival
attracts guests from around the country
and beyond. With so many attendees in
town, the economic impact is more than
significant, not just for the festival par-
ticipants, but for the entire area. Figure
in the hotel rooms, meals purchased, gas
consumed, purchases made, services
used and the numbers soon leap up.
Look at the Punta Gorda Chamber's
calendar there is hardly a week that
goes by without an activity that the
chamber is promoting to bring new
guests to the city, allowing businesses to
showcase their individual locations.
Membership is truly affordable,
costing as little as $13 per month for
an individual or $22 per month for a
business. With immediate access to the
chamber's business listing on the cham-
ber's website, www.puntagordachamber.
com, members are sure to get instant
hits on both their own website and the
chamber listing, generating new leads
for a business to thrive.
After checking our web stats, the low-
est number of hits for any member with
us has been 10 per month, but many
exceed 200. Notwithstanding all of that,
the more chamber members attend and
utilize chamber services and programs,
the more members will get back.
Networking is a critical part of any


membership pays for it

business plan. By attending just one ticket-holders will get in ow
business event a month, members will All the show details, seatir
be introduced to not just local business what is included in ticket pr
leaders, but an abundance of other local found on the chamber's wet
business leaders who want to ensure calling the office. Don't miss

and word of mouth as much as possible.
To check out how to join and get
involved, simply call 941-639-3720, and
we'll do the rest for you. Bring business
cards and brochures, and you'll be on
your way to success. We are known as
being very friendly.

Discovery Punta Gorda
While making plans for the coming
weeks, consider taking a trip on the
chamber's trolley tours. These are a
great and fun way to learn about the
area. They occur most Fridays through
May, and the cost of the trolley ride is
$25.
Today (Feb. 14), is the next tour date.
To get on board and to check avail-
ability for today or other dates, call the
chamber office at 941-639-3720 during
regular office hours.
Group bookings are strongly advised
to be made well in advance to avoid
disappointment.

Wine & Jazz Fest on horizon
Don't forget the Wine & Jazz Festival
is Feb. 22. Only a few weeks are left to
plan for the event, so don't leave it too
late in case availability is gone for all
ticket levels.
Each year, this event has continued
to grow and attract the very best of
internationally acclaimed jazz talent to
its stage. The artists love performing at
the Punta Gorda festival, and it shows.
This year's line-up presents four stars
of the jazz world, all appearing on one
stage. Not long from now, Mindi Abair,
Gerald Albright, Richard Elliott and
Norman Brown will be entertaining
folks in Punta Gorda. It's a compilation
that is seldom repeated, and it offers
jazz enthusiasts a talent package
that is second to none in the state.
Individually, each artist draws high-dol-
lar ticket prices for just one part of what

In addition to the named acts ap-
pearing on our stage, now is also the

tion between the Florida International

VIP tent for viewing both a dusk and
nighttime special air show, followed by a
spectacular fireworks display.

mentary drink tickets, the opportunity

therefore, a Dolittle Raider.

Nina Sedule-Ross is the owner of Creations
Gallery in Fishermen's Village.

Creations Gallery settles



into Fishermen's Village


N ina Sedule-Ross opened up
her newest venture, Creations
Gallery in Fishermen's Village,
to the public for a grand-opening
celebration in December. During the
event, friends and fellow artists offered
congratulations to Sedule-Ross while
taking a peek at the newest gallery
to open in the village, 1200 W. Retta
Esplanade.
With the downtown Punta Gorda
gallery by the same name under her
belt, Sedule-Ross decided to open a
new gallery at this location because she
felt it would attract additional visitor
traffic to generate additional sales for
her artists.
"I expected mostly visitors to the
area, but was happily surprised at how
many locals come to the village for
shopping and dining," she said.
Just like the gallery on Taylor Street,
the Fishermen's Village gallery offers
fine art as well as whimsical pieces,
hand-painted clothing, jewelry and
accessories.
The 50 artists represented in the two
galleries are mostly local, being within
a 3-hour radius of Punta Gorda. Out-
of-the area artists include those from
Miami and Georgia.
"I love to watch artists change and
grow and expand their repertoire,"
Sedule-Ross said. 'Although I work
10 hours a day, when I come into my
galleries, I still say, 'Wow.' It truly is a
labor of love."
Although she originally pursued a
career as a psychologist, Sedule-Ross

always loved art galleries and dreamed
of one day owning her own.
"I used to visit galleries and think
how wonderful it would be to live each
day with all that beauty," she said.
When her husband, Steve, a radiol-
ogist, wanted to move to Florida, he
needed a carrot to lure his wife. He
suggested that she might open her own
gallery.
The couple moved here in 2001, but
it took a few years for Sedule-Ross to
realize her dream.
Her first gallery, which she called her
"pocket gallery," opened in 2008 with
artist Kathy Bostwick.
"We were in a tight, upstairs area of
then Papillon's on Wood Street," she
explained. 'And we started with 10
artists that we had met during lessons
at the Visual Arts Center."
Next, they moved their little gallery
into a small space in Helen Gero's
former boutique on Marion Avenue.
In 2010, when Bostwick moved on to
pursue her art career, Sedule-Ross
moved into her downtown location, 210
Taylor St.
"It was a big jump for me, but, there,
I had enough space in my own gallery


to add more artists," she said.
She started with 10 artists in one tiny
pocket gallery, and now has two galler-
ies representing 50 talented artists.
Sedule-Ross lives every day sur-
rounded by all that beauty.
Creations Gallery in Fishermen's
Village can be reached at 941-639-
6363. Shops at the outdoor mall are
open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday
through Saturdays and from noon until
6 p.m. Sunday.

They can be found at Creations Gallery in
Fishermen's Village.

A military career is not for everyone, but many students at Charlotte High School are testing their
interest by joining the NJROTC program.




Tarpons prepare



for military service


By LAUREN SKEOCH
CHS JUNIOR
E entering the military is not a
simple process for many students
who wish to join the military
straight out of high school. Little do
these students know about the lengthy
process.
The exact amount of time it takes is
dependent on specifics, such as the
desired branch one wishes to enter and
the individual person's background
and knowledge base.
"It depends a lot on the person,"
explains Charlotte High School senior
Ashley Striker, who is preparing to en-
ter the U.S. Army. "If the person has a
rough background on his or her record,
then it takes longer. If you are clean,
you usually pass through pretty easy,"
In order to enter the military,
one must take the Armed Services
Vocational Aptitude Battery exam,
which evaluates academic skills in ar-
eas like science, mechanics and math.
The ASVAB test greatly determines
one's odds of being accepted into the
Army.
"You want to try and get at least a
50 out of one hundred on the test,"
explained CHS senior Tierra Woodman,
who is taking the exam in March.
"Many don't get in if it is lower than
that. If they do, it is not a good job."
The exam can be taken at the
student's high school or year-round
at the local recruiter's office. The test
is only available twice a year at the
high school. After taking the ASVAB,
students interested in enlisting for
military service should meet with a
recruiter to talk about the score the
individual earned and the different
jobs available to them.


Ashley Striker, a senior at Charlotte High
School, plans to enlist in the U.S. Army. She
has been working out with recruiters since
December.

"The process is long and
sometimes taxing, but if
you stay with it and you
do well on the
exam and physical
exam, you'll be glad that
you did because it is all
worth it."
Tierra Woodman,
CHS senior

"The process is long and sometimes
taxing, but if you stay with it and you
do well on the exam and physical
exam, you'll be glad that you did be-
cause it is all worth it," Woodman said.

PHOTO PROVIDED
The Webbs treasure this old photo
of them sitting happily together on
a Montauk beach. Richard is on the
left and Geraldine, a year older, on
the right.


HERALD PHOTO BY GORDON BOWER
Richard and Geraldine Webb have been married for 59 years. Other local couples can top that number, but how
many of them can say they met when toddlers?


From toddler friends




to a perfect union for 59 years


any long-married couples
remember when they first
met, but few can say that
memorable moment occurred when
they were mere toddlers. Richard Dick
and Geraldine GerryWebb are proud
exceptions.
During the course of their nearly
eight decades together, they have gone
from toddler playmates to steadfast
friends to a happy couple in a marriage
that has lasted more than 59 years.
All the usual cliches about a husband
and wife in a successful union apply.
They finish each others sentences and
know what their partner is going to say
before a word is uttered. They are still
best friends and a perfectly matched
pair as much in love during their 80s as
they were when they married.
The relationship started up in
Montauk, Long Island, when Gerry's
mother took her 3-year-old toddler on
a first visit to meet the Webb's baby.
Dick said, "We lived across the street
from each other. We used to play to-
gether in a sandbox and on the beach."
For those doubters out there, the
Webbs have a photo showing them on
a Montauk beach, sitting contentedly
together in the sand. Gerry has me-
morialized those early memories in a
poem she wrote in honor of Richard's
80th birthday last year.
Part of it reads:
"We played together for days on end,


S Gordon Bower


I Il, % t--im, ii titer
-i^ -* ^ d ^ lbu~i/ tl@.ulll .diA.lli.L

Becoming not only playmates, but
finally friends.
That was 80 years ago and still
I've many happy memories of those
days,
Where Richard's sandbox was the
best in town,
And days at the beach were the fun
times we found.
Many great times we shared and
actually still do."
Gerry's poetic sentiments pretty
much capture the Webbs' time togeth-
er. She moved 15 miles away to East
Hampton when she was 5 years old,
but the two remained close friends
because they attended the same high
school. After she graduated from
college in 1954 and Dick was finishing
up his junior year at Colgate University,
they found themselves working togeth-
er at a surf club in Montauk, a town
noted as a beach resort.
Dick said, "We would stop in for a
drink every night at the club's cafe.
We were engaged in September and


married in December."
Gerry remembers the path from
friendship to love being a little bumpier
and claims she had to work on him a
little bit to get to the marriage stage.
Once they made up their minds, one
obstacle remained her father.
Dick said, "Her father was a dairy
farmer and a man of few words. He was
sitting in his chair, and I said, 'Gerry
and I would like to get married; how do
you feel about it?' He said, 'Guess it's all
right,' and that was about it."
After graduating in 1955, he spent
33 years working for the New York
Telephone Company while she stayed
home in Montauk to tend to their three
daughters.
He said, "Gerry worked for six
months while I was in college and, after
that, took care of the house and bring-
ing up the kids. She did a great job of it.
All the kids and grandkids love her."
Gerry remembers him as a good
husband, father and provider. She said,
"He wasn't perfect, but I'd hate to have
to train another one."
After retirement, the Webbs cruised
the east coast of the United States in
their Kadey-Krogan trawler, always
keeping an eye out for a warm-weather
spot to call home. The east coast of
Florida was too crowded for their taste,
and a trip west and a long stay in Burnt
Store Marina on their trawler led them
to Punta Gorda.


"We knew the east coast of Florida
and didn't like it," he said. "Punta
Gorda is written up in a lot of cruis-
ing magazines. We loved the small-
town atmosphere and proximity to
the water here. We sold the boat and
built a house in 1996."
Age, as always, takes its toll,
and the two sold the house after
Hurricane Charley. They are now
happily ensconced in a two-story
condo along a Punta Gorda Isles
canal. Gerry is in ill health, but
their affection for each other is still
obvious.
Dick said, "Like everyone, our mar-
riage had its ups and downs, but we
had way more ups than downs. We've
never had any serious arguments;
differences of opinion, of course, but
resolutions always came very easily.
I don't think we would do anything
differently. We've had a great life
with interesting experiences, a good
family, and the advantages of travel
by boat and motor home."
Dick is Gerry's primary caregiver
and has discovered even that wea-
risome task is strengthening their
lifetime bond.
He said, "I would say this. When
you're a caregiver, you get to know
your care recipient better than you
ever did and love her even more.
She's the best patient and never
complains. She's just perfect."

thie cumnmniuilty laced ull.
It's something the Peace River Senior Men's
Tennis League has done for more than 35 years.
What started as a small, six-team league has
become one of the largest senior tennis leagues
in North America, with 673 active members
from 17 clubs playing on 58 teams at three
public courts.
With nine levels of expertise, all you need to
have is a love for the sport and be at least 50
years old.
"I like to play tennis and the competition,"
said Harvey Wise. "And, as long as I can still do
it, I'll do it."
Byron Boucher added, "We have a lot of dif-
ferent teams at all levels. It's wonderful. I come
down for the winter and love tennis."
Ted Bigelow, president of the league, said the
idea is to promote competitive tennis among se-
nior men from tennis clubs throughout the area
through good sportsmanship and camaraderie.
"That's why we have nine divisions, so people
can come in at any level," Bigelow said. "We
have the public parks play so that those who
aren't members of a tennis club can go to the
parks."
Some clubs have more teams than others.
Maple Leaf has seven teams, all of whom are
residents, which is required (or at least have
membership in a tennis club) for play in the
private clubs.
The exception is Lakeside Plantation, which
takes players from all over, Bigelow said.
That's where Herb Seigel plays. He is the
treasurer of the league and pays $400 to be a
member of the club, plus $20 to be on the team.
"They have four clay courts, and they're all
well maintained. I usually get my money's
worth," Seigel said.

league 2 years ago because it didn't have the clay
courts required to play in the Fort Myers league.
Heron's Glen has clay courts now, but it stayed
in the Peace River league.
"They wanted to stay. We gave them a lot. It's
only $20 for 21 weeks. We give them a picnic,
a banquet and a few players got new tennis
rackets," Seigel said.
Which brings up another nuance of the league:
the requirement to play on different court
surfaces.
Many of the private clubs have clay courts,
while the public parks have hard courts. Maple
Leaf, by contrast, has cushioned hard courts,
Bigelow said.
"It takes about a set to get used to how the clay
court works," Bigelow said. "When they come to
Maple Leaf, it will take them a set to adjust to our
courts. Some teams don't like to play on the clay
courts."
The league plays its games until April, playing
anywhere from 20 to 21 matches, depending on
whether teams play in six or eight team divisions.
Juggling this many teams can be troublesome.
However, things go off without a hitch thanks to
the work of Francis Peterson, league scheduler.
"Winning teams get promoted, losing teams
relegated and we have new teams coming in from
outside, so we have to discuss where they'll fit,"
Bigelow said.
The league follows United States Tennis
Association rules and also sets its own guidelines.
Players have to follow a certain code of conduct,
and they must be at least 50 years old. Peterson
said the oldest active player is 93.
The league will conclude its season with a
banquet at Maple Leaf Golf and Country Club,
2100 Kings Highway, Port Charlotte, on April 3.

Discussing the written word


On the first Tuesday of the month, local writers gather for their monthly


meeting


( (" love writing," James Michener,
I author of more than 40 books,
Once said. "I love the swirl and
swing of words as they tangle with
human emotions."
Some people have referred to writing
as the world's loneliest profession.
Writers struggle to weave words togeth-
er to tell a story that will entertain and,
hopefully at times, serve some purpose.
At 11 a.m., on the first Tuesday of the
month, local writers gathered for their
monthly meeting at the Punta Gorda
Library to read and discuss their work
with other writers.
Admission is free and is open to all
established or aspiring writers.
"It's a way for writers to get to know
each other," Paul Holmes, organizer of
the event told the group of 13 authors
who attended the first meeting. "Here
we can read and listen to each other
and provide advice and support."
Holmes went around the table asking
each person to read examples of their
work. Topics ranged from humorous
poems and short essays to more per-
sonal stories about specific incidents in
their lives.
Holmes, who retired to Florida from
his native England, wanted to maintain
a close relationship with his grandson.
He created a fantasy world through the
written word where a magical wizard
resided in an enchanted forest.
Holmes said that in one of his stories,
medicine had to be delivered to save
the wizard's life. He used his former job
of selling construction equipment to
contractors as a means of delivering the
life-saving concoction.
"These special people helped us stay
close as my grandson grew up thou-
sands of miles away," he said. "I even
placed my grandson in photos I created
with the characters. Now they hang on
his bedroom wall."
Arlene Kincaid penned a poem about
Super Bowl XLVIII asking New York City,
or the "Big Apple," to allow New Jersey
to "have their moment in the sun for
hosting the Super Bowl."
"I love to write humorous poems,"
she said. "I hope they make people
smile or laugh. It helps in this harsh
world of ours."
Pat Patterson said that he recently
completed his first book, a historical
novel about the Vikings.
"The title is 'The Takers,'" he said. "I
will self-publish it."
DickWeber is finishing up a novel
about the adventures of a single
man involved in the dating scene in
Southwest Florida. He read an excerpt
that focused on a dinner date where
the main character thought he might
become intimate, but he was informed
by his female companion that he
needed a facelift.
Sidney Glaser, who told the group
that he is the only person to migrate


.Al Heminway

i 11 H, nm .1 m i ., .), h- l, ii, I I (iter.

gmail.com.

north to live in Punta Gorda when he
moved from Miami, read the preface of
the novel he is writing. It deals with a
mild-mannered individual who is part
of an organization whose members
have lost loved ones in terrorist attacks.
"His code-name is 'The Bookworm,'"
Glaser said.
Dan Cinelli wrote an account about
the best roast beef sandwiches he ate
when he was growing up that he read to
his fellow writers.
"It was a massive sandwich, with a
large stein of beer and the largest batch
of gravy we've ever seen as kids, and
all at an affordable price," he said. "We
joked that the pot was where the mob
disposed of their bodies."
Unfortunately, Cinelli revealed that
the delectable luncheon treat was not
roast beef at all but horsemeat. The
bar and grill was closed down repeated-
ly for serving the remains of Seabiscuit
until it met its final demise some years
later.
An author of nine historical novels,
David Abraham shared a poignant
tale about a flight he was on from San
Francisco to New York City. He was
secretly admiring the very attractive
middle-aged flight attendant who was
serving the passengers until he thought
how idiotic the behavior was for a man
of his age.
"Those days are long gone for me,"
he said.
However, he struck up a conversation
with a gentleman next to him who was
traveling on to Rome to meet an old
flame. The two had an affair while he
was stationed there while serving in the
U.S. Army.
Abraham said that the man appeared
to be the same age as he was and was a
bit jealous of his good fortune. After the
plane landed, he saw him in the airport
terminal.
"I wished him the best," he said.
"Meetings such as these are a great
way for writers to communicate,"
Holmes said.
Glaser agreed, telling everyone that
he had belonged to another writers'
group, but it had dissolved because
people moved, passed away or simply
lost interest.
"I was looking for another group," he
said, "and I found this one."
The next scheduled meeting
will be held March 4 in the meeting
room of the Punta Gorda Library,
424 W. Henry St.

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am
a 59-year-old woman. I
weigh 116 pounds and am
5 feet, 3 inches tall. Before I
go to the office, I am at the
gym four or five mornings
a week, working out for
an hour. My focus is on
weight-bearing exercise. I
believe my diet would be
considered good (limited
meat, high in fruits and
vegetables, alcohol in
moderation). I do have
osteoporosis, for which I
take a Fosamax generic.
My osteoporosis diagnosis
was made five years ago.
Since taking a weekly pill,
the condition has stabilized
and even has improved
slightly. At my most recent
visit, about 12 months ago,
my physician encouraged
me to take increased doses
of calcium and vitamin D
supplements, which I have
done and therein lies the
question: While I certainly
maybe misinformed, I
continue to hear/read that
vitamin supplements really
don't do much and that
absorption is minimal, so
why bother? -D.U.
ANSWER: The issue
about supplements in
general and vitamins in
particular is that for people
who are healthy and with
no symptoms, there is very
little evidence that they
make you healthier. More
importantly, there's no way
to treat symptoms if there
aren't any, so supplements
taken to prevent problems
from arising should be
proven before making a
general recommendation.
In my opinion, the burden
of proof to take a treatment
to prevent disease needs
to be higher than that for
treatment of conditions.
In the case of osteoporo-
sis, the data are clear that
calcium and vitamin D
improve bone density, and
it is probable that this com-
bination reduces fracture
rate. Moreover, calcium
is needed when taking
Fosamax and medications
like it, to be effective.
Absorption of vitamin D
is very good, and vitamin D
improves calcium absorp-
tion. Most vitamins are
well-absorbed.
DEAR DR. ROACH: Your
recent article addressed
tinnitus as the percep-
tion of sound from no
external source. Does a
similar explanation exist
for the perception of odors?
-Anon.
ANSWER: Tinnitus is
indeed the perception of
sound with no external
source, and auditory
hallucinations are percep-
tions of sound that other
people can't hear. Similarly,
phantosmia, the perception

Answer: The start-up clock company would be suc-

No love for bedbugs


Dear Heloise: Is there
an at-home remedy to
get rid of bedbugs? A
Reader in Washington.
These nasty little crea-
tures did seem to make it
around the world several
years ago, and many ho-
tels had a problem. Most
of that has been resolved,
so be sure that you are
talking about bedbugs
and not fleas or ticks!
There really isn't any
home remedy to get rid
of bedbugs. Over-the-
counter pesticides and
bug-removal products do
not work, according to
my research.
Extreme heat seems to
be the only way to kill the
little devils. So, wash and
dry all of your bedding
in the hottest water and
highest drying tempera-
ture you can.
Call a professional if
they are in other areas of
the house. You cannot kill
them yourself, and they
multiply very rapidly. So,
if they really are bedbugs,
don't waste time trying
old-fashioned hints. The
longer you wait, the more
difficult it will be to rid
your home of these hitch-
hiking bugs! Heloise

Travel hint
Dear Readers: One of
the best hints I've learned
as a "road warrior" is to
never pack clothes you
haven't tried on or worn
before you might end
up with something you
cannot wear! And it's too
late to buy something new
when standing in front


BLONDIE By Dean Young and John Marshall


BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott


Hints from Heloise

of the mirror at 7 a.m. in
a hotel! Try to wash and
wear a new item at least
once to make sure it's
comfortable. Walk, sit,
stand, bend and see if
the clothing will perform
throughout the day.
Happy travels! Heloise

Homemade
gift tags
Dear Heloise: After
Christmas has passed, I
take the Christmas cards
I have received and make
name tags. I trim around
Santa, snowman, etc.,
and punch a hole. Next
Christmas, I add ribbon
and tie onto a gift. -
Linda M. in Mississippi

Pencils and
toothbrushes
Dear Heloise: I have
two hints for you. Use a
nail file or emery board to
refresh the old erasers on
your pencils.
Use old prescription
pill bottles placed over
toothbrushes standing
in holders to keep your
toothbrushes clean. -

Wife's devotion to husband """MALLARD FILLMORE By Bru

stops at the church door I A


DEAR ABBY: About a year
ago, my husband, "Scott,"
started attending church.
He had never gone in the
few years we dated.
We discussed our feelings
about religion before we
became engaged. He comes
from a family that attended
church every Sunday and
believes in God. I was raised
the exact opposite; I'm an
atheist. I told Scott that if
we had children, I would be
OK with him taking them
to church, but I would not
join them. It bothered him
a little, but we talked it over
and moved on.
After a difficult year that
led to some mild depression
(for which Scott sought
help), he started going to
church. I was happy for him
because it seemed to help
him.
After a few weeks he
asked me to go with him. I
went several times, but felt
uncomfortable. I feel like
a fraud sitting in the pew.
Scott says he "wants my
support" and that means at-
tending with him. I suspect
he's embarrassed to be there
without his wife.
I do not enjoy it. I have
been offended by some of
the messages that were im-
parted, and I would prefer
having a couple of hours to
myself on Sundays.
Abby, what should I
do? Is there any middle
ground here? FEELING
COERCED IN SAN DIEGO
DEAR FEELING
COERCED: Tell Scott that
you are happy he has found
comfort in going to church,
but that you are not com-
fortable with what is being
preached and find some
of it offensive. Remind him
that church attendance was
not part of your agreement
when you married him and
that you value your solitary
time at home the same way
he appreciates the service.
While you might relent
and go with him on major
holidays some non-be-
lieving spouses do that
- there really isn't a middle
ground, and because you
feel so strongly about it, you
should stand yours.
DEAR ABBY: I am the
mother of two girls. One of
them has a lot of emotional


Dear Abby

problems. My husband is
gone for months at a time
due to his job. I have told
him many times that I want
him to find another job
that would have him home
more often. He always says
that there are no jobs that
will pay what he's making
now.
I know that we need a
good-paying job, but I need
my husband home and my
girls need their father. With
all of our daughter's issues,
everything falls on my
shoulders and I don't feel I
can handle it alone much
longer. We don't live near
family, and I have found it
hard to make friends due to
my daughter's acting out.
How do I get my husband to
understand? MARRIED
SINGLE MOM
DEAR MOM: I under-
stand how stressful it must
be to have all the responsi-
bility for raising your daugh-
ters on your shoulders. And
feeling as isolated as you
do only intensifies your
feelings. If your husband
doesn't already understand
what you are going through,
I doubt there is much you
can say that will convince
him to quit his lucrative job
and help with the children.
Because he is gone so
much and making good
money consider moving
yourself and your daughters
closer to your family so you
can have some respite when
you need it. And in the
meantime, find a therapist
for yourself. Perhaps your
daughter's doctor or your
personal physician can
recommend one.
DEAR READERS: Largely
because of you, writing this
column is a labor of love
for me, and I would like to
wish you all a very Happy
Valentine's Day! -ABBY

Opening lead: Queen of A

West was Augustin Madala, a
brilliant young player from
Argentina, now living in Italy and
playing on the top Italian team.
North's double is a bit curious,
perhaps just showing values. He
leaped to game at his second turn
expecting his side club fit to be a
bonus. Was it enough?
South won the opening spade lead
in dummy and played a club to his
ace. Madala realized that he would be
endplayed if he ruffed this, so he
discarded a spade. Had he ruffed, he


would have had to continue with the
trump king. South's trump
continuation would force Madala to
play spades or diamonds giving away
the contract in either case. Declarer
now cashed the ace of trumps and
Madala, fearing the same endplay,
followed with the trump queen!
Declarer played a low trump from
hand and Madala ducked his king,
continuing his same defense, which
was basically praying for a miracle.
When East was able to win this trick
with the jack, Madala's prayers had
been answered! East quickly shifted
to the queen of diamonds and the
contract was defeated with two
diamond tricks and two trump tricks.
Madala's defense was brilliant, but
could declarer have done better?
South fell on his own sword when he
played a club at trick two. Instead, he
should have led the 10 of trumps
from dummy, running it if East
played low. Ace and another trump
later would endplay Madala. Should
East cover the 10 with the jack,
declarer wins and continues trumps.
There is nothing Madala can do to
avoid the endplay short of giving
away one of his trump tricks, and the
contract would come home.

When Maralee McGowens Havanese pup, Gracie, gave birth and later needed to be supervised through nursing, Maralee was up all night with her. Then shed go open two businesses every day her original market, Harbor Seafood Meats & More in Port Charlotte, and Tortugas Seafood Restaurant in Punta Gorda. Two years later, that kind of multitasking remains Maralees middle name. With a marketing background, but zero restaurant experience, Maralee had never even waited tables when she opened her eatery. When I opened here, I knew I couldnt do it all. It was important to have the very best people. So, Tortugas is a living organism that shes built out of a dozen top local restaurant staffers. This list of the best starts with Maralees partner, Tony Millan, who manages the supply side as handily as when, all by himself, he ran thousands of pounds of sh in an ice truck between the Panhandle and Atlanta restaurants. He ended up at The Fishery in Placida after Hurricane Opal leveled his own Panama City Beach restaurant. We went into business together when the relationship was still new. We signed the lease for the sh market on Valentines Day! I know, right? But we always try to remember that our relationship is greater than our business. Her rst restaurant hire, server Misty Grifth, had been working at Port Charlottes The Capn and the Cowboy. Misty was the one whod reached out to get that now-defunct local favorite on Robert Irvines Restaurant Impossible. At that point, says Maralee, I already needed a new chef. Misty told me, The guy I used to work for is looking for something to do. Enter Nick Scaringella, former chef/owner of Capn. If you ask Nick what it was like to be on a Food Network reality show, this man of few words wont miss a beat while stirring something or other. What was it like? Cool. What was Irvine like? Nice. Whats your favorite thing to do? Cooking. Adds Maralee, Im in awe of Nicks cooking, his working that line. He has every piece of equipment running, every burner in use, the fryer zinging. Its like an orchestra that builds and builds. Doing what Nick did, being a chef/owner, is a lot harder than what I do. They both remember: It was crazy the minute we opened the door. I did the rst menu and I was like, Im done. But at dinner, we were literally looking in the fridge and typing a menu of what we had left from lunch. People were sitting in the dining room waiting for the menus to be printed. We have grouper OK were gonna have grouper! Then we decided to put steak on the menu one night. It dawned on us the very moment the rst steak was going out that we didnt have steak knives. I personally delivered the plate and said, I want you to know that the rst thing on my list of things to buy is steak knives. We plan better now. Locals from North Port to Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, customers respect fresh sh, but what keeps them coming back is attentive service. Were not a big box everybody here knows your name. Sue Wade is a local columnist for the Charlotte Sun. You can recommend restaurants and/or bars to her by email to Sue.GleasonWade@cengage.com.Bringing a lot to the table CHARLOTTE COUNTY The convenience of using the new recycling carts is a big hit with homeowners, helping to boost the volume of recy cled materials by at least 50 percent, according to Charlotte Countys trash hauler. In December 2013, 1,802 tons of recyclables was produced by residents, a whopping 59 percent increase from the same period a year ago. And the volume of recycled materials last month continued the environment-friendly trend, posting another 50 percent hike from January 2013. When you make it easier and give residents more capacity, they recycle more, said Cyndee Woolley, Waste Management spokeswoman. The yellow-lidded carts, provided at no cost to 84,000 households in November, hold several advantages over the smaller, 18-gallon bins previously in use, she said. The 64-gallon rolling carts are less difcult to move and they hold more, she said, allowing residents to recycle larger, heavier items such as glass jars, bottles and newspapers. We see a lot more of that material when its easier to get it out on the road, she said. Adding to the renaissance in recycling, Woolley explained, was the educational outreach program rolled out prior to the recycling carts. Through the county website and media outlets, Waste Management and Charlotte County teamed up to prepare homeowners for the new Recycling renaissanceBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERNew carts lead to increased volumeRECYCLING | 11 SUN PHOTO BY KATHERINE GODINALance Basso puts a fresh coat of paint on the Rays dugout at Charlotte Sports Park before spring training starts today, with pitchers and catchers reporting. The rst workout is Saturday, and the rst full-squad workout is Thursday. The Rays will open their spring training schedule at home against the Baltimore Orioles at 1:05p.m. Feb.28. For more Rays coverage, see Sports.PORT CHARLOTTE Leon Bisson tried everything he could to divert his wifes attention away from the front of their house Wednesday. No matter what he did, however, he could not stop Martha Bisson from spotting that van pull in her driveway. When the passengers stepped out, dressed in their red-and-white-striped vests and sporting large red bow ties, she knew she was in for something special a singing Valentines Day card provided by the Suncoast Statesmen. I am so surprised, Martha Bisson said. I was doing a puzzle on the lanai and wanted to walk out in front but he kept saying, Lets go in the backyard. While waiting for another member of the group to show up, Leon Bisson, who is also a member of the Suncoast Statesmen, joined Herb Lichty, Bud Gault, Lee Reser and Gary Branch to sing My Wild Irish Rose to his wife of 46 years. He (Leon) just had surgery on his eyelids, she said. They are still puffy. But it doesnt affect his voice. When the group went in the house, the members presented Martha with a single red rose, a Valentines Day card, sat her in a chair, and sang, Let Me Call You Sweetheart and Heart of My Heart. Then accompanied by the quartet, Leon Bisson performed Every Day of My Life, for his wife. When he nished, she gave him a big hug and kiss, saying, Oh, thank you, honey. Branch said the organization has about 40 members and is attempting Let Me Call You SweetheartBy AL HEMINGWAYSUN CORRESPONDENTSWEETHEART | 14PUNTA GORDA School employees came to the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center dressed in their best. A red carpet, hors doeuvres, and hundreds of chairs set the scene for a big awards night.

The Print edition text area of the form is for information intended for the print edition of the paper. Information outside of the Print edition text area will appear online only. Please dont repeat the Event Title, as that will be included automatically. We will print a maximum of four lines per event (the Event Title plus 120 additional characters, to be included in the Print edition text field, up to three lines deep) at no cost to the event submitter. Your contact number must be included in these 120 characters. You may, however, purchase additional space for $10 per day, per event, per community edition. Simply choose Paid Listing on the Submit Event page. All paid listings will run in the location designated for the event type. I
