Not from Zeke. We

Here's a typical day. The marina's resident
cat, Snook, pitches overboard in pursuit of a
gecko. This launches an all-hands-on-deck
search. Boaters and Zeke's regulars couldn't
see him, only hear him meowing every time
he bobbed and scrabbled to the surface
all along the length of the seawall. When
Snook fetched up four hours later, Billy and
mechanics Rudy and Tom tried in vain to
fish the 25-pound boy out with a strap.
"C'mon, kid, I'll hold your ankles and you
haul him outta there!"
For a while those who inquired after
Snook were told, "He's under house arrest
in the office, until his pads heal."
Though a cat appears to have owned
Zeke's since day one, nice dogs are still wel-
come at the 5-year-old dockside restaurant.

"Big Dale," the owner, is always working

alley away from the dining room. From the
trailer he passes perfectly plated meals out
a window to Rick, Rob, or "D3," Dale's son,
the manager.
Texas native Mike Maloney moved back
to Southwest Florida a year and a half ago.
Says Mike, "I decided to put my boat in this
marina because it still feels like Old Florida
back here." The original marina, Lemon
Bay, was built 50 years ago by Englewood
legend Don Platt. What is now Zeke's was
originally his ice house.
Donrs marina and land can still be
reached only by a winding series of roads
that dead-end on Lemon Bay. Crank up
that GPS. The farther you drive to get
there, the farther back you'll feel like you're
traveling into Englewood's past. Then
there you are, at the end, with a "Tiki Bar"
sign reassuring you that indeed there's a
bar-restaurant back here with live music
thumping five nights a week.
Fine diners might find it incongruous to
get presentations like Timbale au Tarteau at
picnic tables in the shadow of marine diesel
fuel pumps, accompanied by the jingling
of boat tackle and a sunset on Lemon Bay.
Plus a whole lot of crazy positive energy.
If Don Platt were still here, he'd be in that
trailer smoking up mullet for everybody.

City lauded for tree preservation


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER


PUNTA GORDA There are 30,000
cities in the United States, and 3,144
counties, but only 283 cities have
been awarded the Sterling Tree City
USA award, a prestigious recognition
bestowed by the National Arbor
Foundation to communities with
exemplary tree programs.
Of the 410 municipalities in Florida,
only 18 have received this award. This
year, the city of Punta Gorda became
part of that elite group.
"To understand the Sterling award,
first (a community) has to be a Tree
City USA. There are four core things
you have to do, and Punta Gorda has


been doing that for quite a while,"
said Ed Flowers of the Florida Urban
Forestry Council. "Once you get that,
then you go to the Growth awards,
which mean you have to do something
more, above and beyond the core
requirements. And then to get to the
Sterling, you have to do that 10 years
in a row.
"It's hard to do, so I commend
you on a great program," Flowers
told members of the City Council
Wednesday during the presentation of
the award.
Last year marked the city's 19th
consecutive year as a Tree City USA.
Punta Gorda also has been awarded
the prestigious Tree City Growth Award
for its community forestry program


in the areas of education and public
relations, continual education of
forestry staff, community partnership,
and land-use planning coordination.
City officials were excited to earn the
recognition.
"It is a great way for us to begin to
celebrate the 20th Arbor Day celebra-
tion," city planner Joan LeBeau said.
This year the city will commemorate
Arbor Day on April 25 at Laishley
Park. The theme this year is "Trees Are
Terrific." The city is playing host to a
poster contest for grade school chil-
dren from Sallie Jones, East and Neil
Armstrong elementary schools.

Time capsule captures essence of era


By PAUL FALLON
STAFF WRITER
Much has changed over the
past 20 years, and students at
Murdock Middle School will
get a firsthand look at some
differences and similarities
between them and kids from
the early 1990s in the coming
days.
Eighth-grade students at
the school buried a time
capsule in 1992, adding
items they believed to be
of significance. And now,
22 years later, its time to
crack it open.
School media specialist


Gary Helinski uncovered the
capsule, which was buried in
the dirt beneath an oak tree
in a courtyard at the school.
He will open the capsule, and
the contents that remained
hidden for over two decades
will be revealed at the
school's 25th anniversary cel-
ebration March 7 at 1:30 p.m.
The contents are for the
most part a mystery to those
involved with the opening
of the capsule, said school
principal Maria Gifford.
"There are some teachers
that are here now that

Teen singer to bring anti-bullying message


By PAUL FALLON
STAFF WRITER
When 15-year-old
Lizzie Sider talks about
bullying, she speaks
from experience.
The youngster
was bullied while in
elementary school
in her hometown of
Boca Raton, Fla., and
now she takes her
anti-bullying message
with her while out on
tour. Sider is touring
schools throughout
the Sunshine State
performing her country
single "Butterfly." She is
also discussing bullying
and the effect it has on
children.
"My message to kids
that are bullying is
that they really may
not know what kind of
damage they could be
doing," she said. "The
scars from bullying
don't last for a day or a
week. They can last for
years."


Sider also will discuss
ways she coped and
overcame the bully-
ing she experienced
throughout grade
school.
For years, Sider was
bullied and teased by
others. Then one day
her father, Don, told
her that no one has the
power to "ruin her own
day."
"And after I continu-
ously heard this from
my parents, I began to
understand that I could
overcome the bullying,"
Sider said.
Her song "Butterfly,"
is about "embracing
your inner strength,
spreading your wings
and just flying away,"
she said.
Sider will also dis-
cuss bullying with
the children, and she
believes her assemblies
can be more effective
than simple lectures on
the topic.
"They're interactive


and the people are
singing and clapping
and having a good
time," she said. "It's just
a lot different than lis-
tening to people lecture
about bullying."
Sider also believes
her age helps her
to connect with her
audience.
"This is a kid-on-kid
assembly," Sider said.
Sider is no stranger to
touring. She has per-
formed in Nashville and
she has been holding
her anti-bullying

Buyer beware



Previous owner of mangrove lot denied permits


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER
It's unclear whether
Paul Maurer, 57, of
Cape Coral, was aware
the man who sold him
property on Manasota
Key had tried and failed
to obtain permits to
modify the lot's man-
grove wetland.
On Tuesday, Sarasota
County issued a notice
of violation to Maurer
for cutting mangroves
and filling the wetland,
ordering him to restore
the area to its natural
state.
Cutting mangroves and
filling wetlands requires
a special permit, which
Maurer did not have.
The Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection is investigat-
ing the case.
While the lot's previous
owner, Dr. Brian Scanlan,
a radiologist, spent about
five years pursuing the
permit application,
Maurer cut mangroves
and filled parts of the


wetland on Saturday
without seeking permits
at all.
Pat Bieneman,
managing broker of
Coldwell Banker Sunstar
Realty, said if a Realtor
in her company had
been involved in such a
transaction, they would
have found out about the
closed permits.
"One of the things we
do is ... check for open
permits," Bieneman said.
"And when you check
for the open permits,
you also see the closed
permits."
It is unclear whether a
Realtor was involved with
Scanlan and Maurer's
transaction and in real
estate transactions for
vacant properties.
"It's caveat emptor -
buyer beware," said at-
torney Robert Berntsson,
of Berntsson, Ittersagen,
Gunderson & Wideikis,
L.L.P, on Thursday.
"There's no duty to
disclose anything. Only
if the seller was asked


about the presence of
wetlands, and lied, would
the situation be grounds
for a fraud action."
The Sun was able to
contact Scanlan's office
in Largo, Fla., but he
declined to speak to a
reporter.
Maurer also declined
to comment on the sale.
The bay-facing lot
on the 8200 block of
Manasota Key Road,
Englewood, is about
15,500 square feet,
according to property
records. Scanlan's permit
application estimated the
lot contained about 4,100
square feet of mangroves,
which border a tidal inlet
connected to the bay.
Scanlan's mitigation
plan and permit appli-
cation was approved
by the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers and the
Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection. However, it
failed to secure approval
in 2006 from Sarasota
County's Water and


Navigation Control
Authority, made up of
members of the Sarasota
County Commission.
Wade Waltimyer, CEO
of Earthbalance, the
company that repre-
sented Scanlan in the
permitting process, said
the proposed impacts
of Scanlan's plan, which
involved cutting down
three to five mangroves,
were small compared
to the losses affected by
Maurer.
"We took a permitted
project and refined it
down to really minimal
impacts and we took it to
the county. I remember
being kind of shocked
when it got denied,"
Waltimyer said.
Former Sarasota
County Commissioner
Jon Thaxton, who served
on the board when the
WNCA denied Scanlan's
application, said the
denial was based on
consideration for the
public benefit mangroves
provide.


Mangroves "reduce
sediment, reduce ero-
sion, provide habitat...
and clean water," he said.
Scanlan challenged
the county's decision in
the 12th Judicial Circuit
Court, and the appeal
was also denied.
County records
indicate Scanlan sold the
lot to Maurer in 2009 for
$85,000.
"When I found out
what he paid for (the lot)
I thought it was low," said
Howie Foot, who lives
next door to Maurer's
property. "And of course
that's why he jumped on
it."

Investigation
continues
Waltimyer speculated
the DEP's investigation
into Maurer's actions
may yield additional
consequences for the
property owner.
"The penalty so far is
to put it back, and that's
pretty minimal," he said.


"A lot of folks would
argue that putting back
small trees instead of big
trees isn't adequate."
But exactly what
lies ahead for Maurer
remains to be seen.
"Our inspection is
ongoing and we're gath-
ering information and
working on the case,"
DEP Fort Myers ombuds-
man Terry Cerullo said
Wednesday.
Maurer declined to
comment on any of his
affairs with the county
or the DEP but said
he's unhappy with the
way he's been treated
by other Manasota Key
property owners.
"I wish the neighbors
didn't act like a mob and
assault my wife physi-
cally and verbally and
verbally assault me," he
said.
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office has no
record of any assault
claims filed by Maurer or
his wife.

NORTH PORT-
Bidding to become the
next operator of Warm
Mineral Springs is
giving Port Charlotte's
Robert Zabler another
crack at something he's
always wanted to do:
run North Port's only
tourist attraction.
Robert Zabler, 67,
is the sole proprietor
of Warm Springs
Attractions, and one of
the five business own-
ers who placed a bid
this week for a short-
term contract to run
the 81-acre Springs.
The day spa closed
June 30 after joint own-
ers Sarasota County
and the city of North
Port couldn't secure a
contract. Zabler said
he's been going to the
Springs for more than
40 years. He considered
buying the 81-acre
Springs before it was
purchased by Cypress
Lending several years
ago, but did not have
the funding in place.
Zabler said he was
out of state and could
not bid on the first
contract awarded to Dr.
Grigory Pogrebinsky
last year. Pogrebinsky's
contract was revoked
after he refused to sign
it due to safety con-
cerns over the condi-
tion of the buildings at
the day spa.
"I'm not sure that a
short-term operation is
exactly the right thing
to do, but it's better
than nothing," Zabler
said.
The short-term
contract calls for the
operation of the day
spa for swimming
only until Sept. 1. By
then, the city and the
county must have a
signed contract for the
long-term operation in


place, or the day spa
could close again.
Zabler said he has
everything he needs
"but the keys to the
gates" in hand, ready
to open the Springs for
swimming. He cur-
rently works at Fawcett
Memorial Hospital in
Port Charlotte, and has
more than 10 years of
experience managing
hotels in the Palm
Beach area- an ele-
ment he feels will work
in his favor, given the
international clientele
that visits the Springs.
If he's selected,
Zabler plans to manage
the Springs himself.
He has enlisted the
help of former Springs
manager Mary Putnik,
who worked there for
20 years.
Zabler's only worry
about the agreement is
the need to provide 24-
hour security, as stip-
ulated in the contract.
He said he could need
as many as eight secu-
rity guards for an entire
week's staffing. He also
figures he will need at
least two ticket-takers
and several lifeguards.
Getting insurance for
the lifeguards has been
an issue for Zabler,
much like it has been
for most of the other
bidders.
"I contacted five dif-
ferent companies, and
three of them turned
me down right away,"
Zabler said. "Two
insurance companies
told me they would
insure by the income,
but I have no clue what
the income would be."
Zabler said it could
cost as much as
$30,000 per month to
run the Springs on la-
bor alone, a figure that
could jump substan-
tially with insurance
added in. He thinks his
bid stands out because


he believes he's covered
"every corner possible"
in his proposal, from
the number of life-
guards and security to
the insurance issue. He
said that includes deal-
ing with entities such
as the Sarasota County
Health Department,
the Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection and the
U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency.
If asked to stay on as
operator past Sept. 1,
when the city and the
county are expected
to have a long-term
operator in place,
Zabler said he would
stay on board, but he
is concerned that a
federal lawsuit filed by
the Friends of Warm
Mineral Springs against
the city and the county
could hinder progress.
"I'm willing to keep
the Springs open week
by week, month by
month, or whatever is
needed," Zabler said.
"Let's have it open and
make people happy.
You've got people that
come from out of state
and other parts of the
world, so everybody
suffers when people
who come and visit the
Springs cancel their
hotel rooms and other
plans. I'll stay open
as long as we have to,
so the city and county
find a solution."
Next month, the City
Commission will review
all the bids which have
met the requirements.
The selection will be
submitted to county
commissioners, who
also will have a say
about the short-term
operator. Once both
boards agree, the bid
winner has less than a
month to open the day
spa for swimming only.

Report: Man rapes



teen, stabs her family


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER

NORTH PORT- A
North Port man was
charged Wednesday
with violently attacking
the father and brother
of an underage girl he
allegedly had a sexual
relationship with, after
stabbing both men with
a screwdriver, according
to the North Port Police
Department.
Sean M. Chrapowicki,
25, was charged with one
count each
of sexual
assault on
a victim 16
to 17 years
of age and
aggravated
battery with
a deadly
CHRAPOWICKI weapon, re-
cords show,
when a fight was sparked
between Chrapowicki
and the 55-year-old
male victim over a home
repair issue.
According to reports,
Chrapowicki's home
address on Sheila Lane
is listed as the same
address where police
responded around
8:30 p.m. Wednesday
night, which is also the
same address where he
allegedly had a sexual
relationship with a
17-year-old girl.
The report states the
elder male victim and


Chrapowicki got into
a verbal altercation
stemming from a set
of lights on the front of
the home. A 21-year-old
male victim told police
he could hear the elder
victim screaming that
Chrapowicki had a knife,
and found Chrapowicki
yelling in the elder
victim's face, the report
states.
The younger man
punched Chrapowicki
in the face and the
three men fell into the
bathroom, the reports
show, which led to
Chrapowicki putting the
younger victim into a
headlock, slamming his
head into "stuff" around
the bathroom, and
stabbing him in both
sides of his neck with a
screwdriver.
The younger victim
was able to get free and
ran to the living room,
where Chrapowicki
then stabbed the elder
victim in the leg with a
screwdriver. Both men
then fled the residence,
with the younger victim
running for help to a
neighbor's house, and
the elder victim getting
into his car and driving
to his ex-wife's house,
where he hoped to get
medical treatment.
The elder victim
later told police that
Chrapowicki stabbed
him multiple times in


the chest before putting
his son in a headlock,
during which he beat
Chrapowicki with a
bamboo pole and later
a metal fireplace tool in
hopes of freeing his son.
The 17-year-old girl
told police that she
tried to break up the
fight while it was in
progress, adding that she
and Chrapowicki had a
sexual relationship for
more than a year and a
half. They had sex "20 to
30" times since October
2012, she told police,
both at the home and
at Chrapowicki's former
apartment in Sarasota,
the report shows.
Chrapowicki also fled
the home but returned
just after midnight. He
was placed into custody
and transported to
the Sarasota County
Jail, where he remains
without bond.
The elder victim suf-
fered stab wounds to his
chest, stomach, arm and
leg, while the younger
male victim suffered stab
wounds to his neck, arm
and forearms, and cuts
to his back, reports show.
According to court
records, Chrapowicki
was charged with
misdemeanor battery by
Sarasota police in 2011
after attacking a female
victim. Adjudication was
eventually withheld in
the case.

Thomas Paolicelli Jr.
Thomas "Tom" Paolicelli Jr., 80, of Port Charlotte,

House in Arcadia, Fla.
He was born May 2,1933, in
Brooklyn, N.Y., to Thomas Paolicelli
and Assunta Zollo.
Tom graduated High School and
joined the U.S. Army in 1953, where he
served his country, assigned to many
locations across Europe. After com-
pleting two years of duty he returned
S to the United States and attended
S printing school, where he decided to be
a painter. Tom met Lesa at Bethlehem
'-'- Assembly of God Church in January 1959,
S and they were soon married April 30, 1960,
in Richmond Hill, N.Y
Further along in life, Tom and the family faithfully
attended Lighthouse Assembly of God Church in
Glendale, N.Y, where he was the Head Usher/Greeter
for the services. He loved welcoming people to the
church every Sunday morning and night. Tom was
also a dedicated and loyal employee of Lord & Taylor

his job again screening/greeting people. Shortly after
suffering his third stroke in 2009, he stopped working
and really retired. Tom always followed his heart
and the Lord's calling in his life, and attended First
Assembly of God Church in Fort Myers, Fla. Although
his priority in life was to provide for his family, and to
be a loving husband and father, his eyes were always
set on the real goal of forever faithfully serving the
Lord until his last breath. Thomas was a wonderful
Husband, Father and Steadfast man of God and
Country; Rest in Peace until we meet again.

Two Cape Coral residents were arrested Wednesday in connection to the seizure of around 80

Two people have been
charged in connection
with an animal abuse
investigation in which
80 animals were seized
last year from a property
on Oil Well Road in Punta
Gorda.
Yusniel Valdez-Darias,
29, and Greisy Suarez, 26,
of the same
Cape Coral
^ address,
were
i 'i \arrested
Wednesday.
Each faces
a dozen

and a dozen charges of
animal abandonment for
allegedly leaving six goats
and six piglets at the Oil

address,

SUAREZ "They
had some
dealings with that prop-
erty intermittently," said
Charlotte County Animal
Control division manager
Lt. Brian Jones. "Our
investigation showed they
were hands-on with some
of the animals and also
responsible for rotation of
stock out there."
Pablo Cauz, 50, of the
32600 block of Oil Well
Road, was arrested in
December on 27 charges
related to the case. He has
pleaded not guilty and is
awaiting trial.
Animal Control had been

leaving pigs and goats at a Punta Gorda property, where they


were not cared for properly.

Neighbors reportedly iden-
tified the dog as belonging
to Cauz.
Officials searched the
property and found dogs,
pigs, goats, roosters, cows,
a horse and dozens of
free-ranging chickens
living in unsafe conditions
among garbage and
construction materials.
Some of the animals were
later identified as belonging


to Valdez-Darias and Suarez,
and warrants were issued
for their arrests, too.
Jones said it took so long
to nab the Cape Coral sus-
pects because of complica-
tions with working between
counties.
Valdez-Darias and Suarez
were each being held
Thursday at the Charlotte
County Jail on $12,000
bond.

Authorities to crack down


on seat-belt violators


CHARLOTTE COUNTY
- The Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office will be
cracking down on those
who don't wear their seat
belts.
The latest "Click it or
Ticket" campaign begins
Saturday, and runs
through March 15.
The cost for a seat-belt
violation is $30, but that
is doubled for a child who
is not properly restrained,
according to the Florida
Department of Highway
Safety and Motor
Vehicles.
The DHSMV points out
your chances of dying in
a car crash are five times
greater if you are thrown
out of a vehicle.
According to the
department:
Seat-belt laws apply


to all cars, pickups and
vans operated on Florida
roads.
All passengers in the
front seat must wear a
seat belt.
All passengers young-
er than 18 must wear a
seat belt.

The Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office reported the following
arrests:
Brooke Marie Durand, 18,
homeless in Punta Gorda. Charge:
trespassing. Bond: $2,500.
James Colby Wickham, 31,
homeless in Punta Gorda. Charge:
failure to appear. Bond: none.
Jason Kenroy Edwards, 29,400


block of Blarny St., Port Charlotte.
Charges: driving with a suspended
license third or subsequent
offense, and driving without
insurance. Bond: $7,500.
Brittany Morgan Villatte, 27,
23000 block of Jumper Ave., Port
Charlotte. Charge: out-of-county
warrant. Bond: none.
Harry Edward Ursillo, 66,100
block of Edgemere St. NW, Port
Charlotte. Charge: DUI. Bond: none.
Melissa Ann Izzo, 29, 3200 block
of Cordova Terrace, North Port. Charge:
petty theft. Bond: none.
David John Ricci, 38, of Cortlandt
Manor, N.Y. Charge: violation of
probation (original charge: DUI).
Bond:none.

I OUR VIEW

Mangroves

vital to health

of ecosystem

OUR POSITION: Environ-
mental protection in the public
interest.

n 1996, the state Legislature
passed the Mangrove Trim-
ming & Preservation Act in
response to a century's worth of
destruction of a critical ecosys-
tem along the state's coastline.
The intent, as stated in
the law, was to "protect and
preserve mangrove resources
valuable to our environment
and economy from unreg-
ulated removal, defoliation
and destruction." It gave local
governments authority over
regulation and offered state-
wide regulatory guidelines
for trimming. The mangrove
is still the only tree explicitly
protected by state statute.
In 2014, it seems extraordi-
nary that anyone who owns
coastal property would be
unaware of the existence of
our mangrove regulations.
Or that they might think
themselves exempt. Or, even
worse, that they might simply
choose to ignore them. Would
anyone dig up a sea turtle nest
because it was blocking their
access to the Gulf? Hardly.
Manasota Key residents were
horrified last Saturday to wit-
ness the willy-nilly destruction
of bayside mangroves and the
filling of wetlands by the own-
er of a half-acre lot. Sarasota
County issued a stop-work
order last Saturday after a
substantial amount of damage
was done and subsequently
cited Paul Maurer of Cape
Coral for violating numerous
county environmental codes
dealing with the filling of
wetlands and the destruction
of mangroves without permits.
The evidence is substantial.
For one thing, a large por-
tion of mangrove forest was
obviously freshly clear-cut.
Neighbors had photographed
a crew at work. They photo-
graphed a thick, fresh layer
of sand laid on the property
and a man identified as
Maurer himself in the cab of
a bulldozer that had become
stuck in the sand. And the
county found that no permit
applications had been filed.
We sympathize with the
neighbors and appreciate their
quick action and diligence
in blowing the whistle and
hunting down the proper
authorities.
The law exists for very good
reasons.
Mangrove thickets protect
coastal homes and property
from storm surge.
The plants trap pollutants.
Barnacles, oysters and algae
attach to mangrove roots and
filter nitrogen and phospho-
rus. They help clean the water.
Birds and other wildlife shel-
ter in the branches and roots.
They protect and nourish
young populations of fish and
crustaceans, and they provide
food for many species of adult
fish.
Bottom line: Mangroves are
essential to Florida's marine
ecosystem.
The property owner faces
the possibility of fines if he
does not comply with county
restoration requirements.
According to a story by Ian
Ross in the Sun, he will have to
repair the slope of shoreline,
remove the fill and come
up with a plan to plant and
restore the plant habitat. The
sooner the better.
The only good that can come
from this incident is from
the publicity that reminds
everyone that mangroves are
protected. Don't do it. There
is no excuse for anyone who
thinks they are exempt from


environmental regulations that
protect the public interest.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Wine-Jazz Fest
a huge success

Editor:
A standing ovation for the
Punta Gorda Chamber and
all who participated with the
Wine and Jazz Festival this
past weekend.
Not only was the weather
spectacular, but the entertain-
ment was five hours of pure
enjoyment. My husband and
I had an opportunity to meet
many people from out of
town who were amazed with
the charm of Punta Gorda.
I think we even convinced
one couple visiting Naples to
make this their home once
they officially retire.
Our city shined, our harbor
glistened and our businesses
rocked this weekend. It truly
is Happening on the Harbor.

Shift marijuana
to lesser class

Editor:
The federal Controlled
Substances Act places
drugs in five classifications.
According to the DEA,
Schedule I drugs have high
potential for abuse and have
no currently accepted med-
ical use or accepted safety
under medical supervision.
Marijuana, along with heroin
and LSD, are Schedule I, the
most restricted class.
Marijuana's potential for
abuse, defined as excessive
or persistent use and charac-
terized by leading to harm,
is lower than that of alcohol,
nicotine or a host of drugs in
Schedules II and III.
Although THC, the active
ingredient, is available by
prescription, marijuana has
no accepted medical uses.
Schedule I designation makes
it nearly impossible to con-
duct the controlled studies
required for FDA approval -
a hideous Catch-22. However,
the National Institute on Drug
Abuse states that marijuana's
active ingredients show prom-
ise in treating neuropathic
pain, addiction, multiple scle-
rosis and obesity. Anecdotal
evidence suggests usefulness
of marijuana in treating
epilepsy, glaucoma and side
effects of chemotherapy.
Marijuana has side effects,
though less severe than
Schedule II drugs like cocaine
and methamphetamine
and Schedule III drugs like
anabolic steroids and Vicodin.
Certainly, some users develop


various degrees of psycholog-
ical dependency, though most
are mild. The smoke contains
carcinogens present in tobac-
co smoke, but what doctor
would prescribe 20-40 joints
per day? Dosage matters.
The logical way to deal with
medical marijuana is to move
the drug to a lesser schedule
and do the studies. Given the
feds' refusal to act logically,
loosening state laws seems
like a back-door way to force
the government's hand.

Best president
since Bill Clinton

Editor:
I have to agree with the
letter writer who said the
president deserves no respect.
How can we respect a
president when, during his
term in office, we have seen
the stock market more than
double, health care affordable
for everyone, house prices
and sales rising, jobless rate
dropping to 6.6 percent,
General Motors and Chrysler
alive and well, saving several
thousand jobs; new housing
starts highest in years, health
care costs rising at the slowest
rate in over 40 years, Iraq war
ended, troops coming home
from Afghanistan, etc.?
He deserves our utmost
respect, and he deserves our
thanks for being the best
president we have seen since
Bill Clinton left office.

Keep Russians
out of Ukraine
Editor:
In reading the article
entitled 'Area Ukrainians
pray for peace," I was abso-
lutely astounded to read Mr.
Morgulis's characterization of
the crisis in Ukraine.
His claim that the opposi-
tion "lacked a clear focus" is
utterly ludicrous. It's clear to
see that he is the puppet voice
of a corrupt regime which, in
turn, is the puppet of Putin.
Thankfully, the rest of the
world has finally seen that
the Ukrainian people are
struggling to oust the criminal
and corrupt authorities from
power. They are fighting and
dying for self-determination
and to be able to enjoy the
freedoms that we in this
country cherish.
Mr. Morgulis further stated
that all he wanted was for
Ukraine is "to find happi-
ness." Here's a news flash for
you- Urainians in Ukraine
and all over the world will be


very happy when Yanukovych
and his cronies are brought
to justice for the economic
and bloody havoc they have
perpetrated on Ukraine and
its people.
What will make them the
happiest is for Russia to stay
out of the affairs of Ukraine.

On behalf of the PGI Green

ment of useful items as they
will certainly come in handy as

Was Iraq War
worth the loss?
Editor:
This is a self-honesty test.
In 2003, the United States
invaded Iraq, which resulted
in over 4,500 Americans dead,
20,000 with lost limbs, thou-
sands of divorces and PTSD
cases with problems we will
be treating for years to come.
Over 100,000 Iraqis killed and
Saddam Hussein dead.
We have not paid one dime
on the $1 trillion cost of this
war of choice.
Now for the test:
You're going to play God, all
powerful, able to do anything.
You can turn back the clock
and restore life, limbs, mental
health. And, yes, you can
bring back Saddam Hussein.
Would you do it? Only you
really know the answer to this
question.
Time to ponder: Was it
worth it?

Safety issi
in Rotond


Editor:
I read the article "S
Rotonda" and I was p
hear someone was dc
thing about the high
limit in this area.
I totally disagree wit]
ed official who stated h
with the speed limit or
Just by his statement h
he does not walk or evi
there and see how fast
the vehicles are going.
My mailbox has be
knocked down nume
times, and I have bee


four times going the posted
speed limit in a no-passing
zone. I have complained to the
association and to our local law
enforcement about this prob-
lem. Action needs to be taken
on this serious safety problem
before someone gets killed.
I do agree that whatever the
maximum speed limit is that all
the streets in Rotonda should
have the same. I would like to
thank the commissioners of
Charlotte County for stepping
up on this serious safety issue.

Cartoon was
blatantly false

Editor:
It goes without saying that
the Sun is fundamentally a
liberal newspaper when it
comes to national political
and economic matters. This is
evidenced by the columnists
selected for publication.
The subscribers understand
this and build it into our
reading of these editorial page
offerings. However, I believe
the Tuesday Feb. 25 cartoon is
particularly incorrect, mistaken
and biased. It depicts Obama as
being attacked by wrong-head-
ed, unenlightened racists.
The reason most people
object to Obama is because of
his misguided and what many
believe to be illegal actions as
president. It has nothing to do
with his color. A white president
that has acted as he has would
be similarly opposed and
challenged.
The Sun should do a better
job of screening such blatantly
false presentations.

Parade marches backward


I have long been
opposed to gays
marching in the St.
Patrick's Day Parade on
Fifth Avenue.
It isn't because my
father was a past national
president of the Ancient
Order of Hibernians, which
ran the parade for a century
and started the rule that no
gays need apply. Faith and
begorrah, heaven knows I
have nothing against gays.
I have something against
Irish parades.
It has just always seemed
strange to me that gays
were fighting so hard for
so long to bust into such
a hoary, boozy, corny
tradition. Didn't they have
something more fun and
cool to do?
I was traumatized by
an Irish parade as a child
when I was awakened one
morning on a family trip to
a Hlibernian convention in
St. Louis by a band loudly
playing "When the Saints
Go Marching In." My
sister, brother and I raced
to the window and saw our
parents leading a march of
Hlibernians from Mass to


breakfast at our hotel. It was
mortifying. I still can't hear
that song without wincing.
But certainly, if gays want
in, they should get in. And
that's why Mayor Bill de
Blasio is right to blow off
the parade in protest of the
Putinesque restrictions.
De Blasio, who has said
his mother was raised a
Catholic but did not bring
him up in the church, is
being joined in the boycott
by his mini-me, City
Council Speaker Melissa
Mark-Viverito. The Irish
prime minister, Enda
Kenny, is coming, but one
of his Cabinet members has
refused to march.
Some NewYork liberals
and elected officials pressed
the mayor to bar uniformed
police and firefighters from


marching, but de Blasio,
perhaps fearing a shel-
lacking with a shillelagh,
demurred. The mayor of
Boston, MartinWalsh, also
vowed not to march in
his city's St. Patricks Day
Parade if banner-waving
gays are banned, although
he's being more conciliatory
than de Blasio, working to
broker a deal.
Despite taunts by the
Catholic League's wacky
Bill Donohue and Fox
News' tacky Sean Hannity
- who berated "Comrade
de Blasio" for "being
prejudiced toward people's
deeply held fundamental
religious belief" the
mayor seems determined
to get parade organizers
to fold. At this point the
parade is as insanely
antediluvian as Arizona
lawmakers who passed a
bill allowing businesses to
discriminate against gay
customers on "religious"
grounds. Bonkers.
The largest parade in
the Western world, as Niall
O'Dowd, the founder of
irishcentral.com and The
IrishVoice, calls it, is no


longer run by the AOH
but by the St. Patrick's Day
Parade Committee, seven
volunteers in the Bronx
directed by John Dunleavy
a retired bus driver and su-
perintendent. But O'Dowd
says that Dunleavy who
seems like he stepped out
of a different era, is "king of
a Potemkin village." Even
though the parade was
started in the 18th century
by Protestant Irish troops
in the British army, now the
power behind the parade is
Cardinal Timothy Dolan.
"Cardinal Dolan is essen-
tially the arbiter," O'Dowd
says. "Every grand marshal
is checked with hitm The
parade chairman always
seeks the approval of the
cardinal for who marches
in the parade." O'Dowd
concedes that the organizers
are "equal opportunity
offenders. They also used
to refuse to allow kids in
wheelchairs into the parade.
The big issue they face today
is: Are they Irish or are they
Catholic? If it was just an
Irish parade, these people
would have the power to
let gays march. But the real


power is with the Catholic
Church."
Pope Francis has shown
a more conciliatory attitude
toward gays than some
conservative American
clerics like Dolan, asking,
"Who am I to judge?"
Christine Quinn, a lesbi-
an who organized protests
on the policy and who says
it was wrong for former
Mayor Michael Bloomberg
to march in the parade,
explained to me why she
thinks "it's tragic."
"My father is 87, and we
always hoped we'd get to
march in it together one
day," the former council
speaker said. "He marched
when he was in high school
and took me to it as a child.
The organizers don't under-
stand there are real human
consequences and pain in
this discriminating."
The IrishVoice reports
that a special guest at St.
Patricks Day "parade for
all" in Queens- which,
unlike Manhattan, allows
gay marchers to carry
banners and signs will
be renowned Dublin drag
queen Panti Bliss, whose


real name is Rory O'Neill.
He told me that in the
"glittery, nutty" Dublin
parade, "there's no problem
being absolutely as gay as
anyone wants."
He said he was in the
Irish parade one year
"chained to the top of a pa-
pier-machO, fiery mountain
singing 'Holding Out For a
Hero' by Bonnie Tyler with
50 children dressed up as
Celtic warriors in little boats
saving the trapped drag
queen attacked by a giant
one-eyed monster."
The Manhattan parade
organizers, he said, are,
ironically, like pious
Orangemen, "very much
tied up in an old Ireland
that doesn't really exist
anymore.
He finds the prudery odd.
"If they're not kind of gay,
they're not really a parade,"
he said. 'A heterosexual
parade seems to me an
organized walk in the traffic
lane."

A military budget of delusion


he Obama adminis-
tration says that we
need to end what it
calls "the era of austerity"
inWashington. Notably
excluded from this admoni-
tion is the one department
of government that is actu-
ally experiencing austerity
worthy of the name.
Defense Secretary Chuck
Hagel unveiled a military
budget that will reduce the
U.S. Army to pre-World
War II levels. The spin is that
this will be a smarter force
better suited to 21st century
challenges, but everyone
knows that it is all about
accommodating the trillion
dollars in defense cuts
adopted during the recent
Beltway budgetary wars.
The Pentagon has been a
bipartisan target of oppor-
tunity. Democrats oppose
defense spending because
it's defense spending;


Republicans oppose it
because it is spending.
We obviously aren't at the
same point as the British
in the 19th century, when
Bismarck scoffed that if
the British army invaded,
he'd have it arrested. But
570,000 troops were barely
enough to fight the Iraq and
Afghanistan wars, and the
Hagel budget will take us to
450,000, or-if the defense
sequester isn't further
relaxed even fewer.
Most defense secretaries
aspire to be the next George


Marshall. Secretary Hagel
evidently wants to be the
next Harold Brown, who
presided over the Carter-era
hollowed-out military.
It is not quite true that the
cuts are undertaken with-
out any strategic thought.
The Obama administra-
tion's strategic thought
is... that we need no
strategic thought. It is said
that the British acquired
an empire through a fit of
absent-mindedness. We are
losing our global influence
the same way. Because we
can't be bothered.
Understandably, we don't
want to fight another grind-
ing ground war. But this
doesn't mean we won't have
to, or we won't experience
other nasty surprises. It is
an unfortunate part of the
American tradition to con-
vince ourselves, when we
find it convenient, that the


world is not a dangerous
place that always demands
our attention, or else.
In 1939, the United
States had an Army of
185,000 men on the cusp of
history's most cataclysmic
war. We believed conflicts
could always be worked
out among nations, and
that war served no one's
interests, and so it was a
thing of the past.
"It was odd," the late
historian Stephen Ambrose
writes, "that a nation that
had come into existence
through a victorious war,
gained large portions of
its territory through war,
established its industrial
revolution and national
unity through a bloody civil
war, and won a colonial
empire through war, could
believe that war profited no
one.
But so it did. As soon as


WorldWar II ended, we
embarked on a carelessly
precipitous demobilization
that junked one of the most
fearsomeWestern armies
ever assembled. Just having
liberated Europe, we still
managed to find ourselves
unprepared for the onset of
the KoreanWar.
Defenders of the current
defense cuts say that we still
spend more on our military
than anyone else in the
world. True, but we aren't
a mere regional power.
Unless we want to out-
source patrolling the global
sea lanes to China and
the security of Europe to
Russia, we will always have
to spend substantially more
than anyone else does.
Our allies aren't in any
position to pick up the
slack When the French
army wants to go anywhere,
we have to fly it The entire


British navy is smaller than
the fleet sent to take back
the Falklands in the 1980s.
President Barack Obama
is a devoted believer in the
efficacy of government
spending as government
spending on everything
but defense. In 2009, it was
$800 billion for stimulus but
not a cent for defense. In
his wisdom, he is perfectly
content to slash a function
of government that is indis-
putably constitutional, that
is the basis of our freedom,
and that is, relative to do-
mestic entitlements, a drop
in the budgetary bucket.
We may not regret it
this year or the next. But
regret it we will.

The age of law-stopping in Congress


n his more than 58 years
in Congress, John
Dingell has never been
known to mince words.
So it was no surprise that
the 87-year-old Michigan
Democrat announced his
departure with a character-
istically acerbic bang.
"This Congress has been
a great disappointment to
everyone, members, media,
citizens, and our country"
said Dingell, who has served
longer than any member
in the history of either
chamber. "Little has been
done in this Congress, with
57 bills passed into law."
Dingell was even more
biting in a pre-announce-
ment interview with The
Detroit News. "I find serving
in the House to be obnox-
ious," he said. "It's become
very hard because of the
acrimony and bitterness,
both in Congress and in the
streets."
These are amazing words,
because Dingell loves
the House "this non-
functional, dysfunctional
place," as he described it
in a telephone interview
Tuesday. He literally grew
up there; his father, John
OF.T.M.rVM. .F T f


Sr., was elected in 1932.
Fifteen-year-old John,
then a congressional page,
was on the House floor in
December 1941 for Franklin
Roosevelt's Pearl Harbor
speech.
When his father died in
1955, 29-year-old John ran
in the special election to
succeed him. A Dingell has
represented Michigan in
the House for more than
eight decades, and could be
for decades more: Dingell's
wife Deborah, a Democratic
powerhouse in her own
right, may run.
Dingell's announce-
ment completes a trio of
Democratic House giants
leaving at the end of the
113th Congress. George
Miller of California, ranking
Democrat on the House
Committee on Education
and theWorkforce, is leaving
after 40 years. So is Miller's
fellow California liberal,
HenryWaxman, along with
Miller the last of the class of
1974 "Watergate babies" to
have served continuously in
the House.
And now Dingell, who
soldiered on afterWaxman
ousted him from his


cherished chairmanship of
the House Committee on
Energy and Commerce in
2008.
Combined, these depar-
tures signify a tectonic shift
in the House Democratic
landscape. They represent
a tacit acknowledgement of

Bubba Bobby Jindal waves war flag


This town can get
pretty wound up
when a politician
misbehaves.
Given some of the
reactions to Bobby Jindal's
off-script remarks Monday,
you'd think he'd been
caught with a mirror on
his shoe in the ladies'
restroom.
No, it was much worse
than that.
Hide the children. He
defied protocol!
In town for the National
Governors Association win-
ter meeting, Jindal joined
other state chief executives
in front of the White House
after a meeting with the
president. Taking the
microphone, Jindal said
among other things that
"the Obama economy is
now the minimum wage
economy," and the presi-
dent is "waving the white
flag of surrender."
It's a wonder no one
fainted.
According to those who
follow closely every little
thing, governors are in


town to share blankies
and not hurt feelings.
They're supposed to be
bipartisan-ish and leave the
spleen venting to Congress.
Bobby didn't get the memo.
His comments prompted
a faux-angry rejoinder from
Connecticut's Democratic
Gov. Dannel Malloy, who
called Jindal's remarks
"the most partisan state-
ment that we've had all
weekend," and Jindal's
white flag comment "the
most insane statement I've
ever heard." (Really? Even
wackier than you-can-
keep-your-insurance-if-
you-like-it?)
A smiling Jindal took the
microphone again, adding
that if his earlier comments


were the most partisan
thing Malloy had heard,
"I want to make sure that
he hears a more partisan
statement."
And so it went.
It should be mentioned
that there were plenty of
smiles all around and no
one seemed to be reaching
for theirValiumr But Jindal
seemed to be having a
really good time com-
fortable in his bravura,
not to mention being in
such close proximity to the
White House, his hoped-for
future home.
Of course, he's running
for president in 2016. He
hasn't said so, but he clearly
is. His actions speak far
louder than his words.
Given this obvious fact,
Jindal can't start too soon
demonstrating his older,
wiser more experienced
persona. He has to be
aggressive to convince
the Republican base that
he's a stand-up guy willing
to jump in the ring with
Apollo Creed. OK, so
maybe with Dannel Malloy.


This isn't such an easy
sell for the slightly built
Rhodes scholar who be-
came the nation's youngest
governor. And though
Jindal is a Catholic convert
- and he speaks with the
natural lilt of his birth state
of Louisiana he is not
visually "one of us" in the
way some Republicans
have demonstrated they're
most comfortable. To
the birther sensibility, if
President Obama was born
in Kenya, then Jindal could
be from Punjab. In fact, he
was conceived there but
born in Baton Rouge.
Birtherism is not unique
to the fever swamps of
Republican fringe dwellers,
it is useful to remember.
When Jindal ran for
governor in 2007, oppo-
nents frequently noted that
his first name is Piyush.
Democrats mentioned
"Piyush Bobby Jindal"
as often as Republicans
brought up "Barack
Hussein Obama" the
following year. Of course,
Vice President George


H.W Bush couldn't resist
referring to his Republican
presidential rival Pete du
Pont as "Pierre." And so it
goes.
Whatever you call him,
anyone who has met Jindal
quickly realizes that he
considers himself a good ol'
boy, bom and bred. Bubba
Bobby. An admitted policy
nerd who probably would
rather revamp health care
reform overnight with
no coffee than attend a
gator-wrestling match, he's
apparently ready to start
flexing his muscles.
Though new to the
broader public, this is a fa-
miliar Jindal to Louisianans
during the Katrina era.
While then-Gov. Kathleen
Blanco was clearly over-
whelmed by events, Jindal
became the Incredible
Hulk. Then a congressman
inWashington, you might
say he was bustin' his
britches to save the day,
or at least as many fellow
citizens as possible. He flew
to Louisiana, presumably
by his own powers, rolled


up his sleeves and procured
caravans of trucks for relief
efforts.
More recently, alas,
Jindal is better known
as the young man who
delivered the GOP's State
of the Union response in
2009. A naturally fast talker,
Jindal obviously had been
coached to slow down. This
did not work well. Rather
than coming across as
deliberative and thoughtful,
Jindal seemed to be having
an out-of-body experience
enhanced by special
brownies.
No one is more aware
of this than Jindal. Hence,
what we saw Monday
and likely will see again
and again. Whether he
could land the Republican
nomination seems iffy at
best, but it won't be for lack
of intelligence. Smarts is
something else.

Federal budget won't be reined in under Obama's watch


White House
officials selling
President Barack
Obama's new budget have
focused on his proposals to
expand such Democratic
Party standbys as education
and job training.
But given the likelihood
that Congress won't buy
these, Obama's more
significant proposal may
be his decision to withdraw
last year's proposed limits
on Social Security benefits
as a first step in renewing
bipartisan efforts to rein in
long-term federal spending.
It underscores the fact
that Obama's hopes of
dealing with this long-
festering problem are dead
for the remainder of his
administration.
Obama had hoped that,
in return for a Democratic
initiative cutting costly
entitlement programs, the
Republicans would renew
their 2011 offer to accept
revenue increases, presum-
ably through tax reform
that closed loopholes


MARCUS
FROM PAGE 9

Democrats' slim chance of
regaining the majority and


giving special preferences
to business and wealthy
taxpayers.
Unfortunately Obama's
proposal went nowhere
at a time the bases of
both parties had already
indicated reluctance to
take the necessary steps to
reach such an agreement.
The fact that an improving
economy is reducing the
current federal deficit has
reduced pressure to do
something now.
The reasons many
Democrats made it clear
they wouldn't accept
even a modest cutback in
Social Security benefits
are twofold: The bulk of
the long-term spending

- denials notwithstanding
- of bipartisan frustration
with an increasingly un-
governable, unproductive
Congress.

problem lies not there
but in the soaring costs of
Medicare and Medicaid,
and they are unwilling
to curb the program that
represents their party's
most significant political
legacy.
Similarly, a majority of
congressional Republicans
resisted House Speaker
John Boehner's effort to
accept some $800 billion in
revenue increases during
his unsuccessful July 2011
talks with Obama. Those
talks were the best oppor-
tunity of recent years to
reach a significant budget
agreement.
A special 12-member
congressional panel's
subsequent failure in
November 2011 to agree on
a more modest package of
spending cuts and revenue
increases signaled the end
of serious efforts to enact a
significant spending control
measure.
Thus, once again, the
president and Congress
have done exactly what

for fear they would get
voted down," Dingell said
last year comments
echoed by House Speaker
John Boehner's tart
impatience with his own
unruly caucus. "Mother
Teresa is a saint now," an
exasperated Boehner said
earlier this month, "but if
Congress wanted to make
her a saint, and attach
that to the debt ceiling, we
probably couldn't get 218
votes for it."
And that is the most
troubling message of the
announced retirements.
Congress, as Dingell noted,
"means 'a coming togeth-
er.'" But that technical


Obama had been deter-
mined to avoid.
"What we have done
is kicked this can down
the road," he told The
Washington Post editorial
board in discussing the
nation's fiscal problems just
days before taking office.
"We are now at the end of
the road and are not in a po-
sition to kick it any further.
We have to signal serious-
ness in this by making sure
some of the hard decisions
are made under my watch,
not someone else's."
But Obama's new budget
continues to kick the issue
down the road by conced-
ing tacitly that the onset
of election-year politics
prevents any serious effort
in 2014. After that, the
2016 campaign will have a
similar effect.
It's one of the more
notable programmatic
failures for a president who
has achieved some success
on many of the major pro-
posals he campaigned on:
national health care, reform

definition is ever more
divorced from anarchic
political reality. Miller,
Waxman and Dingell were,
literally, lawmakers leg-
islators who painstakingly
cobbled together the coa-
litions necessary to enact
laws governing everything
from clean air to education
reform, tobacco regulation
to health care, civil rights to
telecommunications.
Such efforts feel tragically
anachronistic. The current
House, and the current
Republican Party, is more
about dismantling and
blocking than creating.
Dingell himself leaped on
my suggestion that there is


of the securities markets,
economic recovery and an
end of U.S. involvement in
Iraq and Afghanistan.
And while the two parties
share the blame, Obama
can't escape responsibil-
ity for fumbling the best
opportunity he had to
lead on the problem: the
December 2010 proposal of
his own bipartisan com-
mission, headed by former
Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo.,
and former ClintonWhite
House chief of staff Erskine
Bowles.
To be fair, that panel,
which was filled with seri-
ous budget thinkers from
both parties, itself failed
to agree on the package of
spending cuts and revenue
increases proposed by its
two co-chairmen. And its
inclusion of entitlement
cuts and tax increases
posed political perils,
which explains why so few
political figures endorsed
them.
But the Simpson-Bowles
plan could have been a

a lost art of legislating, yet
he dated the problem to
well before the emergence
of the tea party as a political
force.
"The place got meaner
than hell when [Tom]
DeLay and [Newt] Gingrich
came in" during the 1990s,
he said. "It was awful."
When Gingrich wrested
power from committee
chairmen and centralized
it in the speaker's office,
Dingell added, "all of a
sudden, the place ground
to a halt." The tea party,
in this assessment, is the
unpalatable icing on an
already distasteful cake.
In part, this phenom-
enon represents an
inevitable byproduct of
differing philosophies of
government. Democrats
tend to want more;
Republican less, especially
since the rise of the tea
party. It also reflects the
constitutional role of an op-
position party in checking
presidential designs. And
not all Republicans would
take a wrecking ball to

good starting point for
Obama. But he never
acknowledged his support,
though it was roughly sim-
ilar to his administration's
approach.
Of course, congressional
Republicans showed even
less willingness to deal with
the problem. And any seri-
ous effort to curb spending
requires both the president
and the opposition party to
deal with the exploding cost
of entitlements and a badly
skewed tax system.
Perhaps the next presi-
dent will make it a major
priority. But there is no
guarantee that will happen,
especially when neither
party is willing to face reality
and a brightening short-
term fiscal outlook creates
the misleading impression
that the long-term problem
isn't really so serious.

diligent work on revamping

Nor are Democrats
innocent of choosing
partisan gamesmanship
over sincere legislating.
See Politico's report that
Democratic staffers,
anticipating the release of
Camp's plan, "emphasized
that they shouldn't criticize
the tax reform bill but,
rather, allow Republicans
to trip all over themselves."
How sad is that?
Even sadder is the lesson
of the Miller, Waxman and
Dingell departures: The era

Doo-wop's harmonies still ring true


By AL HEMINGWAY
SUN CORRESPONDENT
In the late 1950s,
standing under a street-
light on the corner of
115th Street and 2nd
Avenue in East Harlem's
Little Italy, four boys
in their late teens were
singing the popular
songs of the day with
no instrumental accom-
paniment, known as
a cappella.
Also called doo-wop,
a vocal-based rhythm
and blues music that had
exploded on the scene in
the mid-1950s when the
tune "Earth Angel" by the
Penguins was released,
the crooners practiced
every night to hone their
singing skills.
The singers called
themselves the
Delmonicos. The group's
bass singer was Gary
Knight, who fondly
recalls those days nearly
six decades ago and
continues to perform
today to keep that era
of music alive and well,
at least in Southwest
Florida.
"When we sang in
Little Italy in New York
City, people who didn't
like us threw cans and
bottles at us," he said.
"We knew we were
successful when ladies'
underwear was thrown at
us. We were way ahead of
Tom Jones."
Born and raised in
Manhattan, Knight came
from a musical family.
His grandmother could
play seven musical
instruments, his mother
played the piano, and
his four uncles sang with
barbershop quartets.
But it is Knight's
unique voice that is
sought after by a cap-
pella groups. That rich,
bass sound is a definite
plus for them. With songs
like "Blue Moon" by the
Marcels in 1961 and
"Please Mr. Bass Man" by
Johnny Cymbal in 1963,
singers like Knight who
could reach those low
notes were suddenly in
great demand.
"I have been blessed
with my voice," he said.
"It's hard to find a bass
singer."
Knight said by the
early 1960s, people were
beginning to take notice
of the Delmonicos when

Gary Knight sang, as Paul Baker of Brigid's Cross played the fiddle, at the 17th anniversary of the
Celtic Ray recently.


Billboard Magazine's Top
10 wrote to "watch out
for this group."
They opened for many
of early rock 'n' roll's
greatest Frankie Valli
and the Four Seasons,
the Duprees, the Drifters,
the Platters, the Coasters,
Johnny Maestro and the
Crests, Chubby Checker,
the Capris, Vito and the
Salutations, and Larry
Chance and the Earls.
"There weren't too
many number one acts
we didn't open for,"
Knight said. "At a rock
'n' roll show in New York
City at the Radio Music
Hall in 1990, we even
backed up Shirley Austin
Reeves, the lead singer
of the Shirelles. Her
group didn't make it to
the show. Years later, we
ran into her and she still
remembered us."
After winning nine
a cappella contests, the
Delmonicos caught the
eye of Willie Winfield,
lead singer of the
Harptones. The group
had a smash hit with "A
Sunday Kind of Love."
At a show near
Parsippany, N.J., in 1988,
Knight said they accom-
panied Winfield on the
song "The Masquerade
is Over" in the atrium of
the Sheraton Hotel.

'Everyone just
stopped to listen'
"As we sang, everyone
just stopped to listen,
the room was filled, and
some people even lined
the stairwells," he said.
"You could've heard a pin
drop."

More than 40 local
artists will showcase
their work from 10 a.m.

Zemel Road, south of
Punta Gorda. There will
be live music by Steve

Admission to the fest is
free.
Inspiration Studio

Unfortunately, Knight's
budding musical career
came to a screeching halt
in February 1964 when
the Beatles arrived on
America's shores. The
British Invasion, as it
was called, sank many
American groups.
"Our song 'World's
Biggest Fool,' would've
hit number one," he said.
"But the Beatles, Rolling
Stones, Gerry and the
Pacemakers, and others
English bands put an end
to that."
Knight eventually
became a New Jersey
state trooper and retired
in 1985 after serving with
the law enforcement
agency for 20 years. He
relocated to Lake Suzy
several years ago. Even
at 75 years old, Knight
has not forgotten his love
of music and now sings
with Uptown Express to


make certain that the
doo-wop legacy stays
alive.
"We have 10 in the
band five singers, four


backup musicians and
a sound man," he said.
"We are one of the few
groups that have live
music. They are a great
bunch of guys and great
singers."
Knight said there
is a definite demand
for doo-wop music
in Southwest Florida.
Uptown Express had
seven gigs in nine days
and is always booked.
At a recent performance
at Visani's Restaurant in
Port Charlotte, the show
was sold out.
"We asked the audi-
ence, 'Who grew up with
this music?'" he said.
"Everyone in the room
raised their hands."
When he listens to
other bands perform,
Knight is often asked to
join them on stage. At the
17th anniversary of the
Celtic Ray, he sang "Sixty
Minute Man" with the



rI


husband-and-wife team
Paul and Peggy Baker of
Brigid's Cross.
At Deep Creek Elks
Lodge one evening, he
sang with Sal and Andrea
Prado of the band It
takes Two. Prado sang
with the Reflections,
whose hit "Just Like
Romeo and Juliet" in the
mid-1960s climbed the
charts despite the British
Invasion.
Prado asked Knight to
join them to close the
show with "Goodnight,
Sweetheart, Goodnight,"
originally recorded in
1954 by the Spaniels.
"We are history,"
Knight said. "When we
are gone, nobody will
know how to sing doo-
wop. I will sing it until
the day I die."

F.A.M.E. comes through

for student musicians


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
ENGLEWOOD-
F.A.M.E. Friends for the
Advancement of Music
Education once again
is ensuring Englewood
students will be able to
explore their musical
talents.
The nonprofit group
just put in an $18,000
order for musical instru-
ments that includes three
tubas and three Yamaha
euphoniums for L.A
Ainger Middle School's
band; an oboe and an
intermediate acoustalon
marimba for Lemon Bay
High School; and $700
in drums for the Island
School on Boca Grande.
Besides buying new
instruments for school
bands, FEAM.E. has its
"Play It Forward" program
where people can donate
used instruments to the
schools that may be just
"gathering dust."
Now entering its ninth
year, FEAM.E. has raised
$100,000 to provide in-
struments to area schools,
founding member Jim
Pivovar said. EAM.E.'s ma-
jor fundraiser is its Music
City Block Party concerts
in November at Pioneer
Park onWest Dearborn
Street.
Pivovar didn't pick
up an instrument when
he was a high school
student, and only later
taught himself to play
guitar. He doesn't con-
sider himself a musician,
but does feel musical
programs are valuable to
a student's education.
"It enhances their
mental skills, helps
their social skills, and
overall makes them
well-rounded people,"
Pivovar said of students
who have the opportu-
nity to learn to play a

with the Sterling award,
the Florida Urban
Forestry Council also
recognized the members
of the Punta Gorda Isles
Green Thumbs a non-
profit volunteer organiza-
tion whose mission is to
enhance the green spaces
of our community for
their outstanding work in
tree preservation.
The group was com-
mended for its superior
gardening at the park
near the corner of Bal


musical instrument. "Our
group feels music is very
important."
The value F.A.M.E.
provides students isn't lost
on Jodi Rossi, president
of the Lemon Bay High
School Band Booster
Club.
"(EA.M.E.) is critical,"
Rossi said, citing how
fiscally tight school bud-
gets are for the funding of
musical programs.
She also cited how
expensive musical
instruments are. A quick
Internet search on Google
or eBay confirms how
costly new, and even
used, instruments can be.
F.A.M.E.'s donations to
LBHS, Rossi said, have
freed up $40,000 of the
booster club's funds to
meet other needs, such
as the $2,600 it spent to
repair band instruments.
As a parent, Renee
Galloway said her
daughter, Savanna, loves
music and couldn't wait
to sign up for L.A. Ainger's
music program. Now a
high school freshman at
Lemon Bay, Galloway said
her daughter plays the
tuba an instrument
F.A.M.E. donated to the
band.
"If you ask any of these
young musicians in our
schools, they will all tell
you, music is liberating,"
Galloway said. "Because
of F.A.M.E., so many
underprivileged students
have the ability to be
involved with music, and
have their own instru-
ment to practice on so
that they can get better.
When they play well, they
beam with pride."

"The time that they

Richard Polk of the

recognition.
"We get out there every
week and do our work
because we love it," Polk
said. "But it's great when
someone else thinks

Area man charged with



construction fraud, embezzlement


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER

VENICE -A local man
was arrested Thursday and
charged with nine counts of
grand theft and two counts
of embezzling construction
funds, after he allegedly
took nearly $700,000 from
homeowners for work that
either was partially com-
pleted, or never done at all,
S i accordingto

STerrence
P P Reamn I,
43, of the
12000 block
of Granite
roWoods Loop,
REAM is being
charged by
both the Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office and the
Venice Police Department
for his connection to
11 victims spread across the
cities of Sarasota andVenice,
records show.
According to reports,
Ream's company, Terry
Ream Construction, filed
for Chapter 7 bankruptcy
on Dec. 6,2013, following


seven months of writing
contracts with and taking
large payments from home-
owners for construction.
In many cases, Ream's
company started the
work by outlining the
overall costs, taking a down
payment, then asking for
additional funds as the
process moved along. Ream
allegedly would conduct
some of the work and pull
a few permits, but the work
was never completed, even
though he would cash the
checks.
For instance, oneVenice
homeowner entered into
a contract with Ream on
May 16, to completely
reconstruct his Rivera Street
home for $305,940. The vic-
tim overpaid Ream a total
of $317,371 between May
and September, and Ream
started construction in
November. But Ream's com-
pany closed its doors not
long after, and the victim
was left with an incomplete
home and roughly $50,000
worth of work that was
never completed.
According to reports, au-
thorities began investigating


Ream in December fol-
lowing his bankruptcy,
seizing his bank accounts
and business records in the
process.
Documents shows a
"pattern" of money being
transferred from the
business accounts into the
personal accounts of Ream
and his wife, who co-owned
the construction company,
reports show. The couple
spent an excessive amount
of money on shopping, cars
and beauty-related expens-
es through July, when Ream
was forced to take out a
high-interest business loan
to keep his business out of
bankruptcy.
Ream continued to take
on new customers between
August and October of
last year, writing hundreds
of thousands of dollars
worth of contracts. But, in
late October, Ream again
was forced to take out two
additional short-term,
high-interest loans to keep
his company out of bank-
ruptcy. In late November,
the business closed, and
filed for bankruptcy in
December.


Ream was arrested
Wednesday at his Venice
home, and was transported
to the Sarasota County
Jail, where he remains
on $325,000 bond. SCSO
spokeswomanWendy Rose
would not comment on
whether Reanm's wife would
face charges, but added that
the case remains open and
ongoing.
Reports also show Ream
previously declared bank-
ruptcy in 2004 as the owner
of Central R. Construction
in Taylorville, Ill. There were
roughly 30 parties who
could claim approximately
$570,000 in outstanding
liabilities, according to
reports.
The Central County, Ill.,
Clerk of Court's office said
Ream did not face criminal
charges in 2004, in relation
to his previous company,
but staff was unsure if he
paid restitution to any of the
claimants. The bankruptcy
case was filed, and eventu-
ally settled, in U.S. District
Court, Central District of
Illinois.

McBee would encour-
age people traveling to
or past the stadium at
2300 El Jobean Road -
on game days to "bring
their patience with
them."
There will be caution
signs and message
boards in the area with
instructions about where
to park and where to
watch for pedestrians
crossing. But McBee
said it's key for motorists
to understand how
to properly leave the

ingly. And be cautious
when exiting private lots.

March 17. Large under-
ground drainage pipes
will be installed to better
drain the area. Work
will continue on Retta
Esplanade, along with
Harvey, Durrance and Gill
streets, through June.


Another tip for motorists
is to avoid the Charlotte
Sports Park area when
the game is over because
the traffic crew's goal is to
empty the parking lot in
20 minutes, McBee said.
An average spring baseball
game lasts just about three
hours or so.
Motorists aren't the only
fans officials help on game
days.
"We try to ensure,
foremost, that pedestrians
are safe crossing the road,"
said McBee, adding people
walking in the area should
"watch for our signals and
our commands."
She said seven deputies
typically work a game day,
and fans should know they
are in good hands.
"I train a select group of
supervisors," said McBee,
who became District 2
commander at the begin-
ning of 2013. "Specifically,
I had to learn the traffic
pattern that best works in
that situation because of


Portions of Gilchrist
Park will be cordoned off
while work is done and
restoration of the area is
completed. Vehicles and
pedestrians will have
limited access to the
park. There may be lane
closures at times, with


the size of the road and the
amount of people coming
from the park."
And authorities near the
park won't be neglecting
their duties of enforcing
the law. There will be
a crackdown on ticket
scalpers.
"It's illegal, so that's one
of the things we watch for,"
said McBee. "If we have
people out there trying to
scalp tickets, we'll address
them, educate them and
take appropriate action if
necessary."
In Florida, it's illegal
to resell tickets on the
grounds where the event
will be held without con-
sent from the venue. It's
also illegal to re-sell tickets
in person even across
the street, for example -
for more than $1 above
face value.

He, too, has a few spring

"We always encourage
people to come early to

The stadium is also open
one hour after the game

"We just want everyone

Forma. "But they need

game is important."

capsule, and they can't re-
member what's in it," Gifford
said.
Helinski, who has been at
the school since it opened
25 years ago, is also unsure
what the capsule contains.
His memory of the capsule
was that it was made of
plastic pipe with the ends
sealed.
"It's really going to be
interesting to see what's in
this one," he said.
The contents of the cap-
sule offer insight into the
minds of the teenagers from
the early 1990s because it
shows what the youngsters
thought to be important,
Helinski said.
A former student at Murdock
Middle School who is now a
teacher at Lemon Bay High is
also interested in discovering
the capsule's contents.


Melissa Slicker, 35,
teaches ninth- and 10th-
grade English at the area
high school. She was a
13-year-old eighth-grader
at Murdock Middle School
when the time capsule was
buried in 1992.
"My memories of what's
in the capsule are a little bit
dusty," she said with a laugh.
"That's over 20 years ago."
Slicker remembers that
some student-written poems
as well as some drawings
were placed in the capsule.
She also believes at least one
video cassette was placed
in the capsule before it was
buried.
Slicker will be attending
the 25th anniversary cele-
bration to see the capsule's
contents revealed. The
opening will be broadcast
over the school's in-house
news channel, Helinski said.
Adults involved in the
original capsule aren't the
only ones interested in
seeing the contents of the
capsule. Hannah Piacitelli,


12, of Port Charlotte, is a
sixth-grader at Murdock
Middle School. She is also
eager to see what the cap-
sule holds.
"I think it's really, really
cool," she said. "We'll get to see
the things they had when they
were kids."
Nicole Cuellar, 12, of Port
Charlotte, believes there will be
lots of toys and maybe some
video cassettes in the capsule.
"This is an amazing expe-
rience because not everyone
in the world gets to open a
time capsule," the seventh-
grader said.
Eighth-grade students
at the school won't just be
checking out the contents in
the old capsule, they'll also
be pouring over items that
will go into a new capsule to
be buried on the same day.
A survey has been provided
to the about 800 students in
the school as well as faculty
to determine what should be
placed in the capsule, which
is to be dug up in 25 years.

Married man becomes Maronite priest

NEWYORK (AP)-
When an important
social issue intersected
with business in Arizona,
Corporate America
decided it was time to
take a stand.
Voicing concern for
their employees, cus-
tomers and bottom lines,
prominent companies
from American Airlines
to Verizon used threats of
reduced business to help
convince Arizona Gov. Jan
Brewer to veto legislation
that would have allowed
businesses to refuse ser-
vice to gays based on the
owner's religious beliefs.
Companies have
long spoken out about
certain issues they felt
threatened their bottom
lines, such as taxation
and the minimum wage.
The strong opposition to
the Arizona bill signals
an acknowledgement by
businesses that it's not just
economic policies that
can be harmful to their
profits. They need to be
more willing than ever to
wade into social issues.


WASHINGTON (AP) -
President Barack Obama
on Thursday launched
his "My Brother's Keeper"
initiative, urging stronger
efforts to create more
opportunities for young
minority men and to im-
prove conditions that keep
them impoverished and
imprisoned in dispropor-
tionate numbers.
Obama said these young
men consistently do
worse in society, with odds
stacked against them. "By
almost every measure the
group that's facing some of
the most severe challenges
in the 21st century in
this country are boys and
young men of color,"
Obama said, ticking off
statistics on fatherhood,
literacy, crime and poverty.
"We assume this is
an inevitable part of


Companies also recog-
nize that many of their
employees and customers
are gay and try to foster
an open and inviting
corporate environment.
"Business used to
restrict itself to economic
issues but they're now
seeing the importance
of other kinds of issues,"
said Darrell M. West, vice
president of governance
studies at the Brookings
Institution.
The measure Brewer
vetoed Wednesday night
would have allowed
people to cite their
religious beliefs as a
defense against claims of
discrimination. She faced
intense pressure from gay
rights supporters, promi-
nent politicians and local
businesses. But ultimately,
it might have been the
national business com-
munity that tipped the
scales.
"They seem to have
had a dramatic impact on
the decision," West said.
"When you get major
companies weighing in


about the possible nega-
tive impact, that makes a
big difference."
Arizona is a large
tourism and convention
destination. The state is
the spring training home
to several Major League
Baseball teams and is
hosting the Super Bowl
next year. When Brewer
signed an immigration
bill in 2010 that sought
to identify and deport
illegal immigrants, there
was nationwide backlash.
Numerous companies
and trade groups moved
their annual conferences
and retreats to other
states.
The business commu-
nity warned against a
similar type of boycott this
time.
"They played a major
role in stopping this bill
from becoming law. It's
pretty simple: when the
businesses that fuel our
economic growth voiced
this level of urgency,
lawmakers pay attention,"

Documents reveal
more joking about
NJ traffic jams
TRENTON, N.J. (AP)
- The latest documents
released by a New Jersey
legislative committee look-
ing into a political payback
scandal surrounding Gov.
Chris Christie show two
figures at the heart of the
case making running jokes
about the idea of creating
traffic jams as a way to
strike at enemies.
The documents do not
provide any new evidence
about how deep into the
plot Christie or his top
staffers may have been,
though they do reinforce
the idea that some of the
people involved were
cavalier about what they
were doing.
Three weeks before the
massive tie-ups near the
George Washington Bridge,
the two Christie-connected
officials exchanged text
messages about a rabbi
who had bothered them.
Since 2010, the rabbi has
been a chaplain for the
agency that runs the bridge,
the Port Authority of New
York and New Jersey.
Bridget Kelly, then
an aide to Christie, was
apparently joking when she
sent an Aug. 19 text saying:
"We cannot cause traffic

Wyoming top in C02

new regulations
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP)
- Turns out the worst
state for carbon dioxide

isn't smoggy California or
bustling New York, but a
state famous for big, clear
skies: Wyoming.
Regulating greenhouse
gases is a touchy subject
in the least-populated
state.
Wyoming faces an out-
sized challenge since get-
ting U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency
approval in December
to regulate greenhouse
gases. New federal figures
show Wyoming in 2011
emitted more than
112 metric tons of carbon
dioxide per person -
more than six times the
national average.
Wyoming also is the
top coal-mining state.
Burning coal to generate
electricity produces large
amounts of C02. But
state officials say EPA
efforts to curtail green-
house emissions are a
"war on coal."
Burning coal pri-
marily to make electricity
- accounts for almost
70 percent of Wyoming's
C02 emissions, twice the
U.S. average.

US: Syria leads human rights violations in 2013


WASHINGTON (AP) -
A chemical weapons at-
tack in Syria last summer
that the U.S. says killed
more than 1,400 people
was the world's worst
human rights violation of
2013, the Obama ad-
ministration concluded
Thursday.
The report by the State
Department also fore-
shadowed the unrest in
Ukraine that just toppled
its government.
The survey singled


out some countries
that appear regularly in
this annual roundup of
abuses: Iran, for manip-
ulation of elections and
civil liberties restrictions;
North Korea, for rampant
reports of extrajudicial
killings, detentions, and
torture; and Belarus, for
beatings of protesters
and lack of checks and
balances by the authori-
tarian government.
But the department
said the Aug. 21 chemical


weapons attack on the
Damascus suburbs in
Syria was "one of many
horrors in a civil war
filled with countless
crimes against humani-
ty," including the torture
and murder of prisoners,
and the targeting of civil-
ians with barrel bombs
and Scud missiles.
"The tragedy that
has befallen the Syrian
people stands apart in its
scope and human cost,"
according to the report.


More than 100,000
people have been
killed in the Syrian
civil war. The chemical
weapons attack, which
Washington blames on
the government of Syrian
President Bashar Assad,
killed at least 1,429 peo-
ple, including more than
400 children, according
to the U.S.
The U.S. cites in-
telligence reports for
those totals, but has not
provided specifics on


how they were obtained.
The Britain-based
Syrian Observatory for
Human Rights, which
collects information from
a network of anti-regime
activists in Syria, has re-
ported a far lower death
toll of below 1,000.
The report also
highlighted government
crackdowns on peaceful
protests in Ukraine and
Russia's refusal to punish
human rights abusers
during 2013.

Today in history
On Feb. 28,2013, Benedict XVI
became the first pope in 600 years
to resign, ending an eight-year
pontificate shaped by struggles to
move the Catholic Church past sex
abuse scandals and to reawaken
Christianity in an indifferent world.
(Benedict was succeeded the
following month by Pope Francis.)
On this date
In 1844, a 12-inch gun
aboard the USS Princeton
exploded as the ship was sailing
on the Potomac River, killing
Secretary of State Abel P. Upshur,
Navy Secretary Thomas W. Gilmer

Woman posing
as manager
steals cash
ATLANTA (AP) -
Atlanta police are
searching for a woman
dressed in aWaffle
House uniform who
walked into a restaurant
pretending to be an area
manager and left with
about $100 in cash from
the register.
The heist happened
shortly after 6 a.m.
Wednesday at one of the
chain's 24-hour diners on
the city's southeast side.
Atlanta police spokes-
woman Kim Jones says
the suspect began acting
as an area manager and
conducted an inspection
of the restroom area,
then continued her
routine as real area


managers do.
The Atlanta Journal-
Constitution reports that
she also turned the cash
register key and took out
about $100.
Police say the woman
was seen leaving the
store in a Mercury
Mountaineer SUV with
Georgia tags and a male
driver behind the wheel.

Venezuela opposition


struggles to expand appeal


CARACAS, Venezuela
(AP) It is hard to find
toilet paper or flour in
oil-rich Venezuela these
days and the country is
plagued by some of the
highest inflation, murder
and kidnapping rates
in the world. Clashes
between protesters and
security forces loyal to
the president have left
16 dead, and a telegenic
opposition leader has
been thrown in jail.
But don't expect a
Ukraine-style street
revolution anytime soon
in this South American
nation, where the fre-
quently outmaneuvered
opposition hasn't united
behind a single strategy or
managed to broaden its
appeal beyond the largely
middle-class, educated
followers it's had on its
side all along. The man
they are up against,
President Nicolas Maduro,
has a near-complete grip
on the military, broadcast
media and institutions
from congress to the
judiciary after 15 years of
socialist rule.
That could change if
the protests continue and
unrest gets further out
of hand. But for many
Venezuelans, the opposi-
tion's two highest profile
leaders, former presiden-
tial candidate Henrique
Capriles and the jailed


Leopoldo Lopez, are
still viewed as part of an
elite detached from the
working class life.
For years the oppo-
sition has insisted the
government is illegitimate
rather than succeeding in
building bridges across
class lines, reinforcing
perceptions that it hasn't
evolved since it backed a
failed 2002 coup against
then President Hugo
Chavez.
"The opposition
is always convinced
that it's a majority and
therefore it thinks that
the government wins
elections by fraud," said
David Smilde, a senior
fellow at the Washington
Office on Latin America
who spends part of the
year conducting research
in Caracas. But "it's a
government that has
considerable support."
Maduro's party handily
won municipal elections
in December that were
seen as a referendum on
his first year in office. An
economic decline has ac-
celerated since then, but
he continues to funnel
government resources
into poor neighborhoods.
While people there
are suffering from the
country's economic woes,
they still feel little connec-
tion with the protesters
they watch on television


burning trash and setting
up barricades in leafy
neighborhoods that they
could never aspire to live
in.
On top of that, the two
men leading the opposi-
tion haven't been able to
agree on a strategy.
Capriles has come clos-
est to expanding the base
by reaching out to Chavez
backers, promising to
protect the revolution's
social gains. That brought
him within 225,000 votes
of winning the election in
April to choose a succes-
sor to the late Chavez.
But he's been pushed
from that path by Lopez,
leader of a smaller
opposition party, who
seized on this month's
student-led protests to
call even more people
into the streets, a move
that landed him in jail
charged with arson and
incitement. That has
forced Capriles and other
opposition figures to rally
behind him.
Capriles conceded the
demonstrations may have
strengthened Maduro's
hand in the short term by
distractingVenezuelans
from their daily frustra-
tions and giving him a
convenient scapegoat on
which to blame a coming
economic crisis caused
by heavy-handed govern-
ment policies.


Scenes of death in South


Sudan: 'No humanity here


MALAKAL, South
Sudan (AP) House
after house has been
burned to the ground.
Hospital patients have
been shot by armed
rebels while lying in their
beds. Dozens of corpses
litter the streets.
"This is about revenge
now. There is no hu-
manity here," said Col.
Jan Hoff, an officer in
Norway's army who has
served in Afghanistan,
Iraq and Syria.
South Sudan, he said,
is the worst he's seen.
"It's absolutely horrif-
ic," Hoff said this week
as he led a heavily armed
U.N. convoy through the
streets of Malakal, the
capital of oil-producing
Upper Nile state. "This
is tribe against tribe.
In Syria it was foreign
fighters against the
government. Here I
don't think it's about the
government."
A corpse nearby
is already a skeleton
wrapped in a soldier's
uniform. Hoff said he
counted 30 bodies on a
recent day. A colleague
had counted 70. The
dead include both


civilians and soldiers.
Human Rights Watch
said Thursday that both
government and rebel
forces are responsible for
serious abuses that may
amount to war crimes
for atrocities committed
in Malakal and Bentiu,
another capital of an
oil-producing state, de-
spite a cease-fire signed
in January. Reprisal kill-
ings, based on ethnicity,
are commonplace.
"Armed forces from
both sides have exten-
sively looted and de-
stroyed civilian property,
including desperately
needed aid facilities,
targeted civilians, and
carried out extrajudicial
executions, often based
on ethnicity," said
Human Rights Watch,
which called the destruc-
tion and violence against
civilians "shocking."
A week ago forces loyal
to former vice president
Riek Machar retook
Malakal in a bloody
assault that forced the
government army to
make what it labeled a
tactical withdrawal.
Government officials
this week said they


would retake the town,
but onWednesday, as
the U.N. convoy drove
through, there was no
sign of South Sudan's
army. The only talk was
how rebels were pushing
north toward the oil
fields that provide the
world's newest nation it's
only income.
After the U.N. per-
sonnel alighted from
their vehicles to tour the
Malakal hospital, the
smell of death and sight
of destruction over-
whelmed. The hospital,
now filled with heavily
armed rebel soldiers, is
ransacked and empty of
patients. Inside is a scat-
tering of dead bodies,
including those clearly
executed in their beds.
Flies are everywhere.
The U.N. has classified
South Sudan as a level 3
emergency that puts it on
par with Syria's crisis. As
South Sudan's rainy sea-
son approaches there are
fears that the hundreds of
thousands displaced by
fighting will not be able
to plant crops, an event
that the U.N. aid chief
here says could precipi-
tate a famine.


I WORLD NEWS BRIEFS


Seoul: N. Korea Syria militants Hundreds march
fired short-range claim Christians for Sinaloa cartel
missiles into sea agreed to pay tax boss in Mexico


SEOUL, South Korea
(AP) North Korea fired
four suspected short-
range missiles into its
eastern waters Thursday,
South Korean defense
officials said, in an
apparent effort to protest
ongoing U.S.-South
Korean military exercises
that Pyongyang calls a
rehearsal for invasion.
The launches, however,
weren't expected to raise
tension as North Korean
routinely tests short-
range missiles and it has
recently sought better
ties with South Korea in
what outside analysts
say is an attempt to win
badly needed foreign
investment and aid. The
rival Koreas this month
held their first reunions
of Korean War-divided
families in more than
three years.
The projectiles that
landed off the North's
eastern coast were be-
lieved to be short-range
missiles with a range of
more than 200 kilometers
(about 125 miles).


AMMAN, Jordan (AP) -
Militant fighters should
not impose an Islamic
tax on Christians in
Syria, a radical Jordanian
preacher facing terrorism
charges said Thursday,
days after an al-Qaida
breakaway group in Syria
claimed Christian leaders
under its control agreed
to pay the tax in return
for protection.
The Islamic State in
Iraq and the Levant said
in a document that its
first "Aqed al-Thima,"
Arabic for protection
pact, was reached in a
meeting last Thursday
with 20 Christian leaders
in the northern province
of Raqqa, a bastion for
the Islamic State.
The authenticity of
the two-page document
circulating online since
Wednesday could not be
independently verified, but
such issues have stoked
fears in Syria's Christian
minority community that
they are being targeted
by extremists among the
fighters seeking to oust
President Bashar Assad.


CULIACAN, Mexico (AP)
- Sinaloa state author-
ities said on Thursday
they are investigating
who organized a march in
which hundreds demand-
ed the release of cartel
leader Joaquin "El Chapo"
Guzman, a display of
public support for crime
boss in a state that many
say he controls.
Gov. Mario LopezValdez
told Televisa that officials
suspect Guzman's family
and friends, and there are
also rumors that protest-
ers were paid and given
food and drink, a com-
mon practice in Mexico.
"We don't know at this
time, but the investigation
should reveal that," Lopez
said.
Hundreds of people
marched Wednesday night
demanding that Mexican
authorities free the boss of
the powerful Sinaloa drug
cartel.

Chinese president
takes charge of
new cyber effort
BEIJING (Washington
Post) Chinese President
Xi Jinping personally took
charge of a new govern-
ment body overseeing
China's cybersecurity
and vowed Thursday to
turn China into a Cyberr
power," according to
state-run media.
Xi's move to head up
the new "central Internet
security and informa-
tization leading group"
comes amid increasing
distrust and tensions
between U.S. and China
over cyber-intrusions
carried out by each
others' government. It
also takes place on the
heels of a crackdown by
Chinese authorities on
online dissent that has
resulted in the arrest and
suppression of numerous
bloggers.
Xi presided over the
group's first meeting
Thursday, according to
the state-run Xinhua
News Agency. Xi em-
phasized that Internet
security is "a major
strategic issue concerning
a country's security and
development as well as
people's life and work,"
according to Xinhua.


MOGADISHU, Somalia
(dpa) Islamist extrem-
ist group al-Shabaab
on Thursday claimed
responsibility for killing
at least 12 people by
crashing a car bomb
into a cafe in the Somali
capital of Mogadishu.
Al-Shabaab "hit its tar-
get well enough. Several
government security
agents have been killed,"
Sheikh Ali Mohamed
Hussen, a senior leader of
the al-Qaida-linked group
told the German news
agency dpa.
More than eight
people were injured
in the suicide attack,
which took place in a
cafe just 50 yards from
Mogadishu's national
security center.
"There were many
people inside and around
the cafe at the time of the
attack; civilians, security
forces and government
intelligence officers,"
security official Mohamed
Hassan told dpa.


(The Washington
Post) A major Pakistani
political party announced
Thursday that it was
ending its blockade of
NATO supply routes
through the northern part
of the country, capping
a three-month protest
over U.S. drone strikes on
Pakistani soil.
In a statement, the
Movement for Justice
Party said it was halting
the demonstration in
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
province out of respect
for the country's judiciary.
On Tuesday, the Peshawar
High Court ruled that
the protest, which forced
the U.S.-led coalition in
Afghanistan to use safer
transport routes, was
unconstitutional.
The Movement for
Justice Party, led by
former cricket star Imran
Khan, began the protest
Nov. 24 after the United
States conducted several
drone strikes in north-
west Pakistan.

S&P 500 index closes




at a record high


NEWYORK (AP) -
After knocking on the
door all week, the stock
market logged a record on
Thursday.
The Standard & Poor's
500 index had moved
above its previous all-
time high on numerous
occasions this week,
only to fade in afternoon
trading. On Thursday,
the index stayed higher
after getting a boost from
strong earnings reported
by a number of U.S.
companies including the
drugmaker Mylan and
several retailers.
The stock market has
staged an impressive


turnaround in February,
after slumping at the start
of the year on concerns
about the prospects for
growth in China and
worries about the health of
the U.S. economy. Growth
in corporate earnings and
optimism that the Federal
Reserve will keep sup-
porting the economy have
helped support demand
for stocks.
"In the last few days
we've flirted with it, and
now we've got the new
high," said Ryan Detrick, a
senior technical strategist
at Schaeffer's Investment
Research.
The timing of the new


record, just before the start
of spring, could help the
market extend its gains,
Detrick said.
The S&P 500 rose
9.13 points, or 0.5 percent,
to 1,854.29. Its previous
record high close was
1,848.38, set on Jan. 15.
The Dow Jones indus-
trial average rose 74.24, or
0.5, percent, to 16,272.65.
The Dow is still about
1.8 percent below its
record close of 16,576.66.
The Nasdaq composite
climbed 26.87 points, or
0.6 percent, to 4,318.93.
The Nasdaq is also short of
its record close of 5,048.62
set in March 2000.


Yellen: Fed monitoring




recent weaker economic data


WASHINGTON
(AP) Federal Reserve
Chair Janet Yellen noted
Thursday that recent eco-
nomic data have pointed
to weaker-than-expected
gains in consumer
spending and job growth.
She said the Fed will be
watching to see whether
the slowdown proves only
a temporary blip caused
by severe winter weather.
Yellen's comments gave
encouragement to Wall
Street. Investors read the
remarks as offering at
least a hint that the Fed
might slow or suspend a
pullback in its economic
stimulus if the economy
faltered.
"We have seen quite
a bit of soft data over
the last month or six
weeks," Yellen said, citing
job growth, housing,
retail sales and industrial
production.


She said the Fed needs
to "get a firmer handle on
exactly how much of that
set of soft data can be
explained by weather and
what portion, if any, is
due to a softer outlook."
In her remarks to
the Senate Banking
Committee, Yellen
repeated the Fed's
previous assurances that
its pullback in its bond
purchases is "not on a
preset course" and could
be modified if there was
a "significant change" in
the Fed's outlook. The Fed
is gradually reducing its
monthly bond purchases,
which have been intend-
ed to keep long-term loan
rates low to encourage
spending and growth.
Yellen said that while
she was open to adjusting
the pace of the Fed's
reductions in bond pur-
chases, "I wouldn't want


to jump to conclusions"
that such a change will be
needed.
Still, investors took
heart from her com-
ment that the Fed was
concerned about the
weaker economic data
and watching to see if the
slowdown was temporary
or persistent.
In prepared testimony
she gave two weeks ago to
a House committee and
on Thursday to the Senate
panel, Yellen said the job
market's recovery is "far
from complete" and that
she expects Fed policies
to favor low interest rates
"for quite some time."
Most economists say
they expect the Fed to
stick to its plan for a
steady reduction in bond
purchases unless the
economy significantly
weakens in coming
months.

I STATE NEWS BRIEFS

Feds approve Gun-sniffing dogs
disaster relief for will patrol Tampa
oyster industry Bay schools


APALACHICOLA (AP)
- Apalachicola Bay and
Florida's oyster industry
are going to get some
financial assistance from
the federal government.
State and federal elected
officials said Wednesday
that the U.S. Department
of Commerce has ap-
proved $6.3 million in
disaster assistance funding.
Gov. Rick Scott said
the money can be used
to help the restoration
of Apalachicola Bay and
assist affected oystermen.
Last year, federal officials
declared a fishery disaster
for oystermen in the Gulf
Coast. The collapse of the
oyster industry followed a
drought that reduced fresh
water into the bay.


Woman sues
nudist community
over service dog
LUTZ (AP)- A blind
resident at a Pasco County
nudist community has
sued the resort associa-
tion, saying that she's been
harassed because her
service dog exceeds the
community's weight limits.
The Tampa Bay Times
reports that Paradise
Lakes Resort resident
Sharon Fowler has a black
Labrador named Laura
who weighs well over the
community's threshold.
Fowler says the dog is a
service animal.
Fowler says the associ-
ation has told her to only
walk the dog in specific
areas and that the dog
must move out of the way
of pedestrians. Also, she's
been told her dog is out
of control.
Fowler filed a civil rights
lawsuit in Pasco court. The
suit seeks monetary dam-
ages for mental anguish
and injunctive relief.


ST. PETERSBURG
(AP) -A Tampa Bay-area
school district has em-
ployed gun-sniffing dogs
to patrol schools and alert
authorities to firearms.
Beginning next week,
the Labrador retrievers
Macy and Roo will start
making the rounds at
Pinellas County Schools.
The dogs can sniff-out
shell casings and guns,
even ones that haven't
been fired in years,
and they can tell the
difference between real
firearms and toys or BB
guns.
The dogs will survey
each school at least twice
during the academic year
in addition to responding
to rumors and threats,
and they will be used
at events such as high
school football games.
"There have been very
few instances where
we've found guns on
campus, but they're
becoming more preva-
lent in our society and
every so often a student
makes a wrong decision,"
Superintendent Michael
Grego said Wednesday at
a news conference. "This
is a really proactive and
visual way to show that
there's no reason why
there should be one gun
on campus."


Day care worker
charged in child's
drowning death
MIAMI (AP) -The
operator of a Miami day
care has been charged
in the death of a toddler
who squeezed through a
hole in a pool fence and
drowned after jumping
into the water.
The Miami Herald
reports that 63-year-old


Zobeida Gonzalez was
arrested Wednesday and
charged with aggravated
manslaughter and child
neglect.
Three-year-old
Jonathan Feliciano fell
into the pool Dec. 22. He
was left by his parents at
Mayling Brache Family
Day Care that morning
with Gonzalez. Gonzalez
helps run the day care.
An arrest warrant said
surveillance video from a
neighbor's yard showed
the toddler was unattend-
ed for at least a half-hour.
It also showed the child
was in the water nearly
23 minutes before being
discovered.


Couple reunited
with unique ring
dropped in Gulf
VENICE (AP)- A
unique wedding ring lost
in the Gulf of Mexico has
been found by a south-
west Florida treasure
hunter.
Sarah Whitten- Grigsby
and Les Grigsby had
matching titanium wed-
ding rings with colored
dots around the bands.
Les Grigsby's ring slipped
from his hand into the
waters off Venice in June.
For months, the couple
would describe the ring
to anyone they saw at
the beach with a metal
detector.
Mark DesErmia of
Venice found the ring
in January about 50 feet
from shore and tracked
down the couple around
Valentine's Day.
The Sarasota Herald-
Tribune reports that
DesErmia has found a
ring lost in the waters
before. In 2007, he found
a 1967 Stanley Cup cham-
pionship ring that former
Toronto Maple Leafs
hockey star Jim Pappin
had lost in the 1970s.

* NFL: Playoffs


Owners


shift in


favor of


14-team


field
By MARK MAKE
THE WASHINGTON POST
WASHINGTON -There
is growing support within
the league for expanding
the NFL playoff field
by two teams, likely
beginning in the 2015
season, and the chances
are increasing that the
franchise owners will con-
sider and potentially vote
on such a proposal when
they meet next month,
according to several
people familiar with the
deliberations on the issue.
"I think there's a lot of
momentum for it," one of
those people said. "I don't
know for sure if the votes
are there yet (among the
owners) or not. But there
is momentum. A lot of
people seem in favor of
it."
The NFL's competition
committee has been
studying the possibility
of adding one playoff
team in each conference,
increasing the league-
wide postseason field
from 12 to 14 teams.
That would result in one
team in each conference
receiving a first-round
playoff bye instead of the
current two. There would
be a total of six games
played league-wide on
the opening weekend of
the postseason rather
than the current four.
Some owners and
NFL executives view an
expanded playoff field
as a sensible means for
the sport to increase
its television revenues.
Another person familiar
with the matter said the
measure is thought by
many owners to have the
support of Commissioner
Roger Goodell.
"I do think the com-
missioner wants it," that
person said, speaking on
the condition of anonym-
ity because he was not
authorized by the league
to comment publicly on
the internal deliberations.
"I'm not exactly sure
when it might get voted
in. But if the commission-
er wants it, I assume it'll

* PREP FOOTBALL: Billy Huthman


Quarterback Trent White fires a pass as then-coach Billy Huthman looks on during a North Port High School spring football
workout in May. Huthman has left North Port because he could not obtain a full-time teaching position with the district.






No vacancy


Huthman's departure from North Port highlights

a developing obstacle to making coaching hires


By ROB SHORE
SPORTS WRITER
NORTH PORT It wasn't the
job that ran off Billy Huthman as
North Port High School's football
coach. It was the lack of one.
Otherwise, Huthman would
be planning for the Bobcats'
spring game against Lemon Bay
right now instead of planning
his family's move to Cocoa
Beach. Huthman accepted a job
as Cocoa Beach High School's
football coach last week.
Huthman's last day at North
Port High School is today.
One of the biggest lures of the
Cocoa Beach job: It came with
a teaching position. Huthman
never had that luxury at North
Port, spending two years as a
substitute teacher waiting for a
full-time teaching job.
"I'm not going to be a sub; I'll

be a full-time teacher," Huthman
said. "They're actually giving
me a football class, with all the
football players for weightlifting.
At the end of the day, it's a great
thing. They stretched out and the
superintendent down there put
me in full time."
Huthman has been matter-of-
fact about needing to take care
of his family and justifably so.
He and wife, Jenny, have three
children, including one who
played football for North Port
this season as a freshman.
With his relocation, they could
be learning to surf.
It ended Huthman's two-year

stint at North Port, the first as
offensive coordinator under Matt
Pryer, then as the coach last year.
He never thought he'd be
leaving this early. Huthman was
well-respected throughout the
community, preaching family
and authoring an offensive
attack in which players such as
Brennan Simms, Leonard Faison
and Sly Augustyn thrive.
He guided North Port to a
3-6 record in his only season.
He took over the team hoping
a permanent teaching position
would open up.
At one point, he even had a
job earmarked for him but
that job vanished when a teacher
with more seniority in the
Sarasota County School District
asked to be transferred to North
Port.

to Rays'


laid-back


approach

By DAWN KLEMISH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
PORT CHARLOTTE -
Newcomer Erik Bedard
hit spring training with
Tampa Bay and imme-
diately embraced the
Rays' laid-back ways. The
left-hander said he could
definitely get used to the
atmosphere.
"They're a winning
organization," he added.
"They've been consistent
over the last five or six
years, and everybody
wants to be a part of that.
I've always heard good
things from other players
that it's fun to be here,
that it's relaxed.
"It's always fun to be
around that."
After some shuffling
this week, Bedard drew
the start in today's
Grapefruit League opener
against Baltimore, an op-
portunity Bedard said he
would use to simply enjoy
the chance of having first
crack at game action.
"It's only one inning,
so it'll be fast, hopefully,"
he said with a chuckle.
"I don't think there's any
pressure there yet.
"I'm just going to try
and throw strikes and get
them out as quickly as I
can. It's always fun getting
back on the mound with
real hitters and another
team on the other side,
not just trying to track the
ball."

short time in which to
make an impression, Rays

Confident Stewart shakes off Daytona misfortunes


By JENNA FRYER
ASSOCIATED PRESS
CHARLOTTE, N.C.-
Tony Stewart does not
consider the Daytona
500 a disaster, despite
the engine problems
that spoiled his return
to racing from a broken
right leg.
The three-time
NASCAR champion
wound up 35th in the
season-opening race, but
he logged enough laps
during Speedweeks that
he feels good going into
the upcoming stretch of
seven consecutive races.
Stewart missed the final

15 races last year after
breaking his leg in two
places during a sprint car
crash in Iowa.
His first time back in a
race car was Feb. 14, the
day before he compet-
ed and was crashed
out of the exhibition


Sprint Unlimited. He also
raced in the Budweiser
Duel before the 500,
giving him 672 miles of
racing in three events.
Stewart goes to
Sunday's race at Phoenix
International Raceway "a
lot more confident than
I was before we got to
Daytona."
"I think having all the
races that we ran, and ac-
tually getting in a crash,
while not a great thing,
allowed me to sort of test
my leg and it felt good,"
Stewart said in a Stewart-
Haas Racing team
release. "There have been
some little things that


have felt a little different,
but for the most part,
it's felt like an old pair of
tennis shoes that you're
just comfortable with. I
think the whole time in
Daytona exceeded my
expectations of what I
hoped it would be like."
But the 500 itself was a
letdown for SHR.
Stewart had the engine
issue and Danica Patrick
was involved in a crash
and finished 40th. It left
only Kevin Harvick and
Kurt Busch, the two new-
comers to the organiza-
tion, in contention for a
solid finish and both had

SUN CORRESPONDENT
Devontrea Tyler earned
a coveted spot on the
Iowa Central Community
College football team.
The DeSoto County
High School graduate then
solidified his presence
with a standout freshman
season.
Tyler, who already is
training for the coming
season, was among more
than 850 candidates to
be considered for 20
out-of-state spots on the
team, coach Kevin Twait
said. Forty-three came in
to compete for the 20, he
said, and Tyler made the
selected group.
The 6-foot-i, 232-pound
linebacker finished the
season with a team-high
105 tackles, second most
overall and fifth most
per game among Iowa

players.

Mcllory takes lead




at Honda Classic


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PALM BEACH
GARDENS -On the
course where Rory
Mcllroy first rose to No. 1,
he looked as if he might
be headed in that direc-
tion again.
Mcllroy shot a 7-under
63 on Thursday, with bird-
ies on the last two holes
at PGA National giving
him a one-shot lead over
Russell Henley after the
first round of the Honda
Classic.
If nothing else, it was
big improvement from
the last official round he
played on PGA National.
Mcllroy was 7 over
through eight holes last
year when he became so
frustrated with mount-
ing expectations and a
slumping game that he
walked off the course in
the middle of the second
round. He said it was a
mistake that he would
never repeat.
Tiger Woods, in his first
tournament in a month,
couldn't make a birdie
putt early and had to
scramble for pars late in
his round. A birdie on the

Henley opened with
five birdies and six holes

my job," Tyler said. "I did
better than I thought I
would academically and
in football."
He trained hard during
the summer, he said, but
even that didn't prepare
him for a preseason
packed with conditioning
and instruction about the
offensive and defensive
schemes. "I wasn't expect-
ing it to be that tough," he
said.
He had a season-high
13 tackles each during a
game in September and
one in October, the former
resulting in him being
nominated for National
Junior College Athletic
Association defensive
player of the week. He had
at least 11 tackles in five of
S11 games (6-5), including
three consecutive.
"He ran sideline to
sideline and made a lot of
plays and was a heck of a
leader for our program as
a freshman," Twait said.
"He has great instincts. He


runs well. He has a 4.6 40."
Tyler said he improved
the most in recognizing
plays and tackling better.
"The running backs,
they're faster and bigger,"
he said.
He had one sack and
five tackles for loss, for the
opportunity to blitz was
there. "They (coaches)
realized I can blitz really
well," he said. "They made
more blitzes for me. That
gives me a good shot
at the running backs or
quarterback."
The players are working
out six days a week, Twait
said, and will have full-
pad workouts beginning
in April.
Tyler is looking forward
to the arrival of friend
Devon Oloruntola, a
Charlotte High School de-
fensive back who signed a
letter of intent ICCC.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.-
Patric Hornqvist scored a
power-play goal at 13:56
of the third period to lift
the Nashville Predators
to a 3-2 victory over the
Tampa Bay Lightning on
Thursday night.
Matt Cullen and
Roman Josi also scored
power-play goals to help
Nashville snap a three-
game losing streak.
The three man-advan-
tage goals were a season
high for the Predators.
Martin St. Louis
had both goals for the
Lightning, losers of three
of their last four.

With time winding
down in the final period,
Hornqvist collected the
rebound of Mike Fisher's
shot and slipped it by
Tampa Bay goaltender
Ben Bishop.
St. Louis scored the
game's first goal at 5:26 of


the opening period.
Ondrej Palat carried
the puck from the left
boards into the slot,
where he sent a back-
hand off the left post. St.
Louis was parked in front
of the Nashville goal to
tap home the rebound.
Less than four minutes
later, St. Louis struck
again.
With the Lightning on
a power play, St. Louis'
wrist shot from the right
faceoff dot hit Nashville
goaltender Carter Hutton
in the chest, fell to the
ice, and trickled across
the goal line.
Since scoring a ca-
reer-best four times in
Tampa Bay's Jan. 18 game


against San Jose, St. Louis
had not scored a goal, a
stretch of nine games. He
also was pointless in five
games for Team Canada
in their gold medal-win-
ning performance at the
Sochi Olympic Games.
Cullen struck at 12:05

clearly unencumbered,
hitting 13 of 19 shots and
topping 30 points for the
fifth consecutive game.
Wade shot 10 for 13
from the field for Miami,
which outscored New

7:02 of the third and won
its sixth straight.
The Heat shot 61

Norris Cole, Mario

The blowout was so

instead to show part of

said the chance to meet Shepard's
parents was "one of those cool treats
in life.'


HUTHMAN

FROM PAGE 1
be (a job) and it just
didn't come through,"
Huthman said. "It's more
through the district than
it is with the (North Port)
administrators. And it's
just the way it's run."
In this case, it left
everyone frustrated.
Huthman, athletic
director Ryan LaVallee
and some of the athletes
and parents who will see
a third coach in three
seasons at North Port.
LaVallee admitted it's
a strange situation, es-
pecially since Huthman
and the school both
wanted him to stay.
"In my experience, I
think it's pretty unusual,"
he said. "I haven't seen


other teams struggling
with that issue. Though
I do know coaching jobs
with teaching jobs are an
issue right now, I haven't
seen anybody lose their
football coach over it."
For now, that isn't a
problem at North Port
- the school promoted
assistant coach Larry
Detwiler to take over
the program. Detwiler
already has a job there
teaching history.
Even at other schools
in recent years, a lack
of teaching jobs at high
schools has played a role
in hiring coaches.
When Lemon Bay
athletic director Tom
Catanzarite hired D.J.
Ogilvie to take over the
Manta Rays' football
program in 2011, he
acknowledged that


Ogilvie's accreditation
as a math teacher made
his candidacy that much
stronger.
Other schools have had
similar difficulties with
coaching hires in other
sports, not being able
to offer corresponding
teaching positions.
It's a thought that
gives Charlotte athletic
director Brian Nolan
unsettling thoughts.
"What happens if
(Tarpons coach Binky
Waldrop) decides not
to coach?" Nolan spec-
ulated. "You know, he's
done it a long time, but
how long can you do
this? That means Binky
(and assistant coaches)
Tom Mut, Larry Marsh,
Ray Hixson they're all
teachers here. They're
still going to teach. So I'd


need a new coach, and I
don't have any teaching
spots."
Nolan also noted the
stipend paid out for
coaching is less than
what many people
perceive.
"The $4,000 a year a
year you get for coaching
football doesn't pay the
bills," Nolan said. "Some
people think they make
a lot more than that, but
that's it."
Unable to live with the
uncertainty, Huthman
told LaVallee he would
need to start looking
around for a permanent
positions elsewhere. He
had also interviewed
for a coaching job at
Olympic Heights High
School in Boca Raton.
LaVallee accepted it,
still hoping something


would be worked out.
"We were worried
about it as long as we
had it," he said. "And
when we hired him, we
were thinking we need
to make this happen. We
were hoping we could
work something out.
And we couldn't do it. We
couldn't work it out.
But though Huthman
is doing what he needs
to, it doesn't make it
easy. He choked up when
addressing his players
last week. Even a day at
Cocoa Beach on Monday
was tough for Huthman,
a reminder that he'd have
to see his former charges
for one more week.
He'd be seeing the
players he never wanted
to leave in the first place.
"I think we built a
family where there were


so many kids where I
didn't have to worry
about what was going
on after they left our
campus," Huthman said.
"They were doing the
right thing."
Now, by right right by
his family, Huthman is
leaving his other one.

* COLLEGE BASKETBALL:


NCAA signs off on Dayton being at home


Flyers could get
big advantage if
they stay on the
tourney bubble
By RUSTY MILLER
ASSOCIATED PRESS
COLUMBUS, Ohio In an
effort to make it a fair contest,
men's teams can't play on their
home court during the NCAA
tournament.
At least, that's the goal. The
Dayton Flyers could upset that
plan.
Every March, the University
of Dayton plays host to the
NCAAs First Four, four games
over two days which open the
annual 68-team extravaganza.


Heading into the weekend,
the Flyers are 19-9 and are 7-6
in the Atlantic 10.
What would happen, when
the selection committee starts
seeding teams in 21/2 weeks, if
the Flyers fell into that part of
the bracket? Home game?
"We don't have a backup
facility that we would go to,"
said NCAA selection committee
chair RonWellman. "So that
would be the case."
The other options are not
workable. The selection com-
mittee will not hold it against
Dayton if it is in position for an
at-large bid. Also, it wouldn't be
fair to bump the Flyers into the
second-round solely to avoid
the home-court problem.
Nope, should the tumblers
fall correctly or incorrectly, if


you're an opposing team the
Flyers would be playing before
a partisan crowd if they got into
a first-round game.
Dayton coach Archie Miller is
not exactly banking on it.
"The goal of our program
is to be in the tournament
every year," said the third-year
Flyers coach. "Once you're in,
it feels like the greatest gift in
the world. If they send you to
Anchorage, Alaska, or send you
to California, you're just so ex-
cited to be in the tournament.
That's a big part of it.
"The fact that we do have the
NCAA tournament here it's
never really crossed our minds,
like, 'Hey, if we get in, hopefully
we can play in Dayton.'"
Wellman said there are
always partisan crowds in

though teams haven't been per-
mitted to play on their home
floor for more than 20 years. So
it's no big deal.
"We consider the location
of the arena in proximity of
the team all the time," said
Wellman, also the athletic
director atWake Forest. "There
are always home crowds, more
of one group of fans compared
to another group in just about
any arena that we play."
Few know it, but the


University of Dayton Arena has
hosted more NCAA men's tour-
nament games than any other
venue: 101 games, with Kansas
City's Municipal Auditorium a
distant second with 83.
It has been home to the First
Four every year since it began
in 2011. Before that, it hosted
the one play-in game which
the NCAA called the Opening
Round from 2001 to 2010.
To bump up attendance, the
school links the NCAA tourna-
ment games with season-ticket
sales. Fans buy the tickets
without knowing who's coming
in usually an Arkansas-Little
Rock or Vermont instead of
Duke or Kansas. Over the years,
the appetizer to the big tour-
nament usually draws between
7,000 and 12,000 fans.

too many teams into

such concerns could be
offset by the potential for

the opening weekend
of the postseason if the
change is implemented,
according to a person
with knowledge of the
deliberations. There are
now two Saturday games
and two Sunday games
on that playoff weekend.
Goodell has said he
thinks such a change
would be unlikely to take
effect before the 2015
season. That probably
will remain the target for
implementation of the
measure, although some
of those close to the de-
liberations said they do
not completely rule out
an attempt being made


Wis.-Superior84,Wis.-Whitewater63


to have the proposal
take effect next season. It
appears possible that the
owners could take a vote
next month even if the
measure would not go
into effect until the 2015
season.
Several people said an
expanded playoff field
does not necessarily
have to be put into effect
at the same time as a
proposed reduction of
the preseason, particu-
larly since the league's
deliberations on how
to go about cutting the
preseason do not appear
to be as far along.

SCOTTSDALE POLICE
SAY INCOGNITO
DAMAGED OWN CAR

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.
(AP) Police checking
on reported damage to a
car belonging to Richie
Incognito, the player at
the center of the Miami
Dolphins' bullying scan-
dal, said Incognito told an
officer he did the damage
himself.
Sgt. Mark Clark said
the Dolphins guard took
responsibility when police
contacted him Thursday.
He said police first
went to Incognito's home
Wednesday after being
contacted by TMZ Sports
and being given a photo
of a black Ferrari with
several dents in its hood.
No report was filed
because no crime was
reported, and Scottsdale
police are done with the
matter.
An investigation
conducted for the NFL
determined Incognito
and two other offensive
linemen engaged in
persistent harassment of
tackle Jonathan Martin,
another offensive lineman
and an assistant trainer.

The Buffalo Bills and NewYork
Giants will kick off the 2014 NFL
preseason in the Hall of Fame game on
Aug. 3 in Canton, Ohio. ...
The Philadelphia Eagles agreed
to a five-year contract with wide
receiver Riley Cooper and a seven-year
deal with center Jason Kelce. Cooper
would've become a free agent next
month after a breakout season in
which he set career highs in receptions
(47), yards receiving (835) and
touchdowns (eight). ...
The Baltimore Ravens terminated
the contracts of three-time Pro Bowl
fullback Vonta Leach and six-year
linebacker Jameel McClain, who were
part of the Super Bowl champions two
seasons ago. ...
An arrest warrant was issued for
former NFL safety Darren Sharper and
another man, accusing them of raping
two women in New Orleans last year.
Sharper is under investigation in sexual
assault cases in Florida, Nevada and
Arizona and has pleaded not guilty to
rape charges in Los Angeles.


BOXING

Casal's fight cancelled
after Moore fails physical:
Light welterweight boxer Nick Casal's
long-awaited return to the ring was
put on hold after Shakha Moore failed
his pre-fight physical because of an
eye condition. They were supposed to
square off at the Niagara Falls (N.Y.)
Conference and Events Center in Casal's
first fight since October 2011. Casal
(22-4-1) has been off since sustaining
several deep gashes to the head, after
being nearly clubbed to death by a
crowbar-wielding attacker in May
2012 near his home in Niagara Falls.


GOLF

Woods to get new
sponsor for PGA event:
Detroit-based Quicken Loans is in the
final stages of a deal to become itle
sponsor for Tiger Woods' PGA Tour
event at Congressional this summer,
the Associated Press has learned. Two
people who have been told about
the deal said Quicken Loans could
start before this year's tournament,
which runs June 26-29. They spoke on


condition of anonymity because the
deal is not completed. That tourna-
ment is called the AT&T National. AT&T
is in the final year of its contract and
has no plans to renew. ...
The Travelers insurance company
announced it has extended its spon-
sorship of the Travelers Championship
golf tournament for 10 years, keeping
the PGA Tour even in Connecticut
through 2024.


MIXED MARTIAL
ARTS

Nevada bans testos-
terone replacement: Nevada
state regulators are banning mixed
martial arts fighters from using
testosterone replacement therapy. The
Nevada Athletic Commission voted
unanimously in Las Vegas to quit
granting therapeutic use exemptions
for fighters undergoing the possibly
performance-enhancing treatment.


SOCCER

Anelka banned 5 games
for gesture: Nicolas Anelka was
banned for five games by the English
Football Association and immediately
suspended by West Bromwich
Albion for a racially aggravated
goal celebration. The French striker
performed the gesture, known in his
homeland as a"quenelle"and has been
described as an "inverted Nazi salute,"
during a Premier League match in
December. ...
Jonathan Spector could make his
first U.S. national team appearance in
more than two years in Wednesday's
exhibition game against Ukraine, and
midfielder Brek Shea and defender
Oguchi Onyewu are returning to
the roster for the first time since
last summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Midfielder Danny Williams and
cefender Tim Ream, who hasn't been
with the team since August, also was
among the 24 players picked Thursday
for the match, which was moved to
Larnaca, Cyprus, from Kharkiv because
of violence in Ukraine. ...
Miami, get ready for the England
WAGs. Roy Hodgson said he will allow
his England players to bring their part-
ners to Miami before the team heads
to Brazil for the World Cup. But he will
be keen to avoid the Biscayne Bay area
being the scene for a repeat of past
escapades involving players'wives
and girlfriends. The so-called WAGs
dominated headlines at the 2006
World Cup with their glammed-up
trips and high-jinx in the German town
where England was based.


TENNIS

Federer, Djokovic to
meet in Dubai semifinals:
While top-seeded Novak Djokovic had
a rest day when opponent Mikhail
Youzhny became ill and withdrew
from their quarterfinal on Thursday,
Roger Federer had to play his way
into their semifinal date at the Dubai
Championships. The fourth-seeded
Federer, who has won this title five
times, won his 40th match at the
Dubai Championships with a 6-2,6-2
win over Lukas Rosol of the Czech
Republic. ...
In Acapulco, Mexico, Andy Murray
reached the quarterfinals of the
Mexican Open with a 6-3,6-4 win
over Portugal's Joao Sousa. The
seventh-ranked Murray needed
three sets in the first round to beat
Spaniard Pablo Andujar, but put in
a more authoritative performance
against Sousa and set up a match
with France's Gilles Simon. Top seed
David Ferrer beat Spanish compatriot
Feliciano Lopez 7-6 (1), 6-2 to advance
to his fifth consecutive Mexican Open
quarterfinal.

Hall of Famer mentors Twins' Hicks


By LA VELLE E.NEAL III
MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE
FORT MYERS Hall of Famer
Rod Carew, who has taken the
Minnesota Twins' young Aaron
Hicks under his wing, was asked
how the mentorship went during
the offseason.
"Did he tell you that I chewed
him out?" Carew said.
No, but go on.
"I called him and I chewed
him out," Carew said. "I just
told him, 'We talked about it
last spring. Don't try to get there
and do too much. Just get your
feet wet and do what you are
doing. The next thing I know, I'm
watching you on TV and you are
trying to hit the ball nine miles.
I'll be on you all spring.'"
One of the keys to the Twins'
improvement this season will
be how Hicks, their first-round
pick in 2008, rebounds after a
rough-and-tumble rookie season
that saw him bat .192 with eight
home runs and 27 RBIs in 81
games. Known for good plate
discipline as he rose through
the minor leagues, Hicks walked
only 24 times while striking out
84. That led to a ticket to Class
AAA Rochester on Aug. 1.
"It seemed like everything I
swung at wasn't a good pitch,
and everything I took was a
strike," Hicks said.
So it was back to class with
Carew.
Hicks spent the offseason
driving from his home in Long
Beach, Calif., to meet with Carew
at San Juan Capistrano. There,
they worked in the cage on his
swing and approach.
"Trying to get him back to

where he was last spring," Carew
said.
Last spring, Hicks batted .370
with four homers three coming
in one game against Philadelphia
- to make the decision to bring
him north an easy one. This year,
Hicks has to earn his way onto
the Opening Day roster, and that
is not a lock.
The Twins are prepared to
look at Alex Presley and Darin
Mastroianni in center if Hicks
has a poor spring. If Hicks, 24,
wins the job and is productive,
it will be a huge relief to a Twins
team that needs his range and

The Twins know he has the
ability. He flashed it May 13
when he hit two home runs and
stole a home run from Chicago
White Sox slugger Adam Dunn.
He flashed it again July 14 when
he crushed a three-run homer
off NewYorkYankees ace CC
Sabathia. But Hicks has to
bring his tools to the field more
consistently.
Even defensively, there were
some balls he pulled up on last
season that he could have made
a play on. Twins manager Ron


S CATCHING UP
The Twins signed Kurt Suzuki,
a starting catcher for most of his
seven years in the majors, to help
Stake Mauer's place behind the plate.
SThe Twins heard strong reviews from
SOakland, Suzuki's former team, about
his leadership and intelligence. Josmil
SPinto, who posted a .963 on-base-
Splus-slugging percentage over 21
Games last September, is the leading
long-term candidate. Eric Fryer and
Chris Herrmann are also possibilities
Sto make the team, if Pinto isn't
deemed ready yet for regular action.


OUTFIELD IS OPEN
Twins outfielders ranked last in
the majors with a collective .668
on-base-plus-slugging percentage.
With Mauer's move and the trade
of Ryan Doumit,JoshWillingham
is expected to become the primary
designated hitter. Oswaldo Arcia is
in line to be the everyday left fielder.
But the entire outfield is open for
competition.
Jason Kubel, brought back on a
minor league contract, is an option at
the corner spots. Former first-round
draft pick Aaron Hicks will have another
tryout in center field, with Alex Presley
pushing him. Chris Parmelee's last

Gardenhire ripped into him
during a May 7 game in Boston
when Hicks nonchalantly flipped
a ball back into the infield after
catching a sinking fly ball. It was
a rough baptism. Now he has
to prove he is a better man for
going through it.
"You know what? It was a great
learning experience for him,"
Gardenhire said. "Now we move
past that, we learn from that,
and we go right to this year and
let him have some fun, get out
there and play baseball. We'll see
where we're at the end of spring
training."
With Oswaldo Arcia showing
promise last season and mega-
prospect Byron Buxton moving
through the system, the Twins
outfield of the near-future could
be forming.
"I definitely feel a lot more
confident," Hicks said. "I'm more
ready. The fact that I know what
it's like to be in the big leagues
and what you need to do on a
daily basis to be successful. I
figure that if I do what I need to
do I'll be fine."
One thing he needs to do is
listen to Carew and apply his
teachings.
"He's got so much talent,"
Carew said. "I said, 'People ex-
pect a lot of you because of what
they hear, but don't go to peo-
ple's expectations. Stay with your
expectations. Let things creep
before you walk.' He wanted to
jump out there and do things
instead of staying within himself.
It's a typical young player."


MISSING RYAN
Widely respected general manager
Terry Ryan was recently diagnosed with
cancer in his neck. He's away from the
Steam indefinitely for treatment, but in
his typical stoic fashion last week, Ryan
told his lieutenants not to worry about
Managing without him.
"It'll be up to him to give us a call,
and when he does we'll fill him in on
what's going on and ask his opinion
and everything else and what he
thinks, and when the time comes
we'll just make the best decisions we
canassistant general manager Rob
SAntony said.

Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda this
weekend.
Mariners 7, Padres 1: In
Peoria, Ariz., Robinson Cano lined a
single into center field on the first
pitch he saw in a Seattle uniform, part
of a two-run first inning that powered
the Mariners.
Blue Jays 7, Phillies 5: In
Dunedin, Jose Bautista kept up his
torrid start to the spring, hitting two
doubles and driving in two runs for
Toronto. A day after hitting a long
home run against the Phillies in his
first at-bat of exhibition play, Bautista
had an RBI double in the first inning
off Philadelphia ace Cliff Lee.
Tigers 5, Braves 2: In
Lakeland, Detroit newcomers Joba
Chamberlain and Joe Nathan each
pitched a scoreless inning, helping the
Tigers. Nathan, who had 43 saves for
Texas last year, struck out two.
Pirates 8, Yankees 2: In
Tampa, Derek Jeter got a partial
standing ovation Thursday before
going hitless in two at-bats in the
first spring training game of his final
season. The Yankees captain, who
turns 40 in June, hit a double-play
grounder to second off Pittsburgh
right-hander Charlie Morton in the
first and grounded out to third during
the fourth against left-hander Jeff
Locke.
Around the nation:
Colorado pitcher Jayson Aquino was
taken to a hospital for tests after
being hit in the head by a line drive
during an intrasquad game. The
left-hander didn't go down and was
able to walk off the field after Rafael
Ynoa's liner hit him just above the
ear. Asked whether Aquino may have
sustained a concussion, manager Walt
Weiss called it a "possibility."...
Oakland acquired infielder Jake
Elmore from the Chicago White Sox for
cash considerations.

Tampa Bay enters this season
with World Series aspirations after
coming up short against AL East
rival Boston Red Sox lastyear. This
section explores how the Rays will
try to close the gap and get past the
defending world champions, starting
with these seven questions for spring
training.
SHow important is the
return of David Price?
Ask manager Joe Maddon,
executive vice president Andrew
Friedman or any of Price's team-
mates, and they will say the same
thing: They're thrilled to have their
ace back. Price is one of the game's
best pitchers and an important
presence in the Rays'clubhouse.
Price is happy to be back, and he
said he feels as good as he has in a
few seasons.
Maddon thinks Price is poised for
one of the best seasons of his career.
If he is, the former Cy Young Award
winner could again be the ace of a
rotation that could rank among the
best in baseball by season's end.
2 Do the Rays think Wil Myers
can avoid a sophomore
slump?
Myers said he doesn't believe
in the sophomore slump, but that
doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
Maddon doesn't think the
reigning AL Rookie of the Year will
fall prey to that trap, though. In fact,
the manager said he believes Myers
is very motivated to avoid it.
Myers said he has done his part
by avoiding complacency in the
offseason, working on his hitting in


the cage and working on his defense
in the outfield. If he can build on his
stellar rookie campaign, he'll again
be one of the key pieces for the Rays
offense.
3 Who will replace the
injured Jeremy Hellickson
in the five-man rotation?
The Rays appeared set to enter
the season with a rotation of Price,
Hellickson, Matt Moore, Alex Cobb
and Chris Archer, but offseason elbow
surgery will keep Hellickson sidelined
until mid-to-late May.
Without him, the Rays will look to
a deep group of in-house options to
replace him.
Top prospect Jake Odorizzi,
acquired from Kansas City in the
James Shields deal, went 9-6 with a
3.33 ERA in the minors last season
and posted a 3.94 ERA in seven
games at the big-league level.
Maddon said he has been
very impressed by Erik Bedard, a


left-hander the manager said he has
been high on for a long time. So it's
possible he could break camp as the
fifth starter.
Either way, the Rays will have
more starting pitchers than they have
spots in the rotation. Especially when
Hellickson gets healthy.
4 How will the offense look
without a traditional DH?
For the past few seasons, the
Rays employed true designated
hitters such as Pat Burrell and Luke
Scott to little success. So this year, the
Rays changed their thinking.
Tampa Bay coaches plan on
rotating players through the DH spot
on a game-by-game basis in order to
get everyone more rest, especially on
the turf at Tropicana Field.
The unconventional approach
could put more pressure an a
relatively inexperienced bench, but
Friedman said he thinks the benefits
will outweigh that risk.


5 What does Evan Longoria
have to do to stay healthy
again this season?
Longoria played a career-high
160 games last season, and the Rays
want more of the same from their
franchise third baseman.
Friedman said the team will
again employ some of the strategies
they used last year. The Rays will try
to give Longoria regular days off,
especially during long homestands at
Tropicana Field. They could also play
him at designated hitter more than
the 27 games he saw at that spot
last season, given that they will have
more flexibility at that spot.
6 How will the bullpen look
when the season starts?
There are a few things that,
barring injury, are certain. Grant
Balfour will be the team's closer
when the season begins, and Heath
Bell, Joel Peralta and Jake McGee
will make the team as setup men.
Cesar Ramos could earn a spot as a
left-handed specialist.
Who will occupy the final two
spots in the seven-man bullpen is up
in the air.
Juan Carlos Oviedo, another
former closer, was thought to have
a good chance to make the opening
day roster, but visa issues in the
Dominican Republic have left him
unable to report to spring training.
If Oviedo doesn't earn one of the
final two spots, the Rays will have
a deep stable of arms capable of
filling those final two spots. Brad
Boxberger could be an option after
being acquired in the offseason deal


for Logan Forsythe, and Maddon
has praised Brandon Gomes, Jeff
Beliveau, C.J. Reifenhauser and Steve
Geltz, among others.
Bedard also has said he would be
willing to pitch out of the bullpen if
he doesn't earn the fifth starter job,
so the Rays will have plenty of arms
to choose from.
7 Are visa issues hurting
Oviedo's and Wilson
Betemit's chances of
making the team?
A week ago, the fact that Oviedo
and Betemit were stuck in the
Dominican Republic didn't seem
like that big of a deal to Maddon. As
long as they were able to report to
camp before the games started, the
manager didn't think they would be
too far behind the rest of the team.
As of Wednesday, the reliever and
the infielder were no closer to getting
stateside.
Oviedo, who missed all of last
season after undergoing Tommy John
surgery, still has a shot to break camp
with the team if he can get there
soon. He has experience as a closer,
and the Rays signed him to be an
important piece late in games.
Betemit's situation is murkier.
He's a proven veteran with plenty of
versatility and experience, but he'll
have to face stiff competition if he
hopes to make the team as a reserve
infielder. Forsythe, Sean Rodriguez
and Jayson Nix are all younger and
just as versatile as Betemit, and -
having reported on time will
all have had an extra two weeks of
spring training.

Three to keep an eye on

By ROB SHORE SPORTS WRITER
Although an unusually high number of players return for Tampa Bay this spring,
there are a number of issues and players to focus on. Here are three Rays veterans
to pay attention to during the next month.


ALEX COBB
Right-handed starting pitcher
If you didn't know this
already, keep it under
your hat: Cobb was on his
way to a breakout season
before getting struck in
the head by a line drive in
June.
The freak occurrence
kept Cobb out of the
lineup for two months
and gave Charlotte Stone
Crabs fans a chance to
see him back at Charlotte
Sports Park. (He spent
the 2009 season with the
Stone Crabs.) And Cobb
still went 11-3 with an
ERA of 2.76.
That ERA (sorry for the
dinosaur stat, statheads)
was lower than that of
All-Stars Matt Moore and
David Price.
Impressed yet?
Concerned that concus-
sion-like symptoms from
that line drive will some-
how affect Cobb? Don't
be. He was actually better
in August and September
last season after coming
back, finishing 5-1 with a
2.41 ERA.
Fantasy baseball experts
are already pegging Cobb
as the young Rays pitcher
to own (ahead of Moore,
even), so watch him now.

DESMOND JENNINGS
Outfielder
According to ESPN,
Jennings is one of three
players to manage
double-digit home runs
along with 20 or more
steals in each of the past
three seasons. The other
two: Pittsburgh outfielder
Andrew McCutchen (the
reigning NL MVP) and
Colorado outfielder Carlos
Gonzalez.
Still, a career batting
average of .250 gives
Jennings something to
prove, at least if he wants
to remain atop the Rays'
lineup. He might need a
good spring to secure his
leadoff role.


DAVID PRICE
Left-handed starting pitcher
Rays fans should watch
Price every chance they
get this spring, because
you don't know how much
longer you will get the
opportunity. He has two
years left on his contract
before free agency, and
the Tampa Bay brass al-
ready dealt James Shields
by this point.
Also, it's an even-num-
bered year and history
shows Price pitches lights
out in even years. He
won the Cy Young Award
in 2012 (20-5, 2.56 ERA)
and finished second to
Seattle's Felix Hernandez
in 2010 (19-6, 2.72 ERA).

Rays' offseason units of measure

After a busy offseason, Tampa Bay looks a lot like the team that lost to Boston in the American League Division Series in October. Ownership opened its wallets and will have the largest payroll in franchise history. All of which means if the fans don't turn
out in far greater numbers than in recent years, there will be a price to pay down the road. For now, however, World Series aspirations are the order of the day. How this year's team was put together and a first look at four of the key, new faces:

STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: Forsythe can play all over the field and
flashed some potential after batting .273 in 2012. But he hit .214 last
season as a foot injury (plantar fasciitis) limited him to 75 games.
WHERE HE'LL FIT IN: Forsythe will give the Rays another super
utility player off the bench, similar to what they have in Sean
Rodriguez.

Rays' Series
aspirations
must first find
a way to get
past Boston
By JOSH VITALE
SPORTS WRITER
PORT CHARLOTTE -
There's a quiet confidence
among Tampa Bay Rays
players entering this sea-
son. Manager Joe Maddon
echoed as much at the
start of spring training
two weeks ago. The Rays
won 92 games last season,
and they return the vast
majority of the team that
helped do it.
The returning cast is
strong, with ace David
Price staying with the
team despite trade
rumors. Third baseman
Evan Longoria is coming
off the healthiest season
of his career and reigning
American League Rookie
of the Year Wil Myers is
poised for a full year in
the majors.
The Rays also had a
productive offseason,
bringing back starting
first baseman James
Loney on a three-year
deal, signing former
Oakland closer Grant
Balfour as a free agent
and upgrading behind
the plate with a trade for
former Cincinnati catcher
Ryan Hanigan.
But plenty of questions
remain. Not necessarily
about the team, but where
the team ranks against
the rest of a stacked
American League East.
The Toronto Blue Jays
have talent, the Baltimore
Orioles have the potential
to improve and the New

Entering the offseason, few expected Tampa Bay ace David Price to be back in Port Charlotte
wearing a Rays uniform. But the team didn't receive a trade offer it couldn't refuse and reached
agreement on a $14 million salary for this season. He is under contract through the 2015 season.
SALARY TRACKER
By bringing back David Price and re-signing James Loney out of the free agent market, usually frugal Tampa Bay will start
the season with the highest payroll in franchise history (figures in millions):
2014.................................... $74.3 2009 .................................... $63.3 2004................................... $29.6
2013 .................................... $63.3 2008.................................... $43.8 2003 ................................... $19.6

2013 COMPOSITE Box SCORE

GAP

FROM PAGE 5
York Yankees had one of
the splashiest offseasons
in baseball.
And then, of course,
there are the Boston
Red Sox, the team that
won the AL East, elimi-
nated the Rays from the
playoffs and won its third
World Series in the past
10 years.
With the Rays playing
their first spring training
game of the season today,
the big question facing
them is this:
How will they measure
up against the Red Sox?
"The Red Sox won the
World Series and the
Yankees have made some
pretty big acquisitions, so
that kind of puts us in the
shadow again," Longoria
said. "I don't think at
least from what I feel -
that too many analysts
will be picking us to win
the division. Which is
perfectly fine with me,
because we've proven
time in and time out that
if you believe the right
things and play the right
way within the club-
house, then the rest will
take care of itself"
The Red Sox didn't
bring in many new faces
this offseason their
most notable acquisition
was veteran free agent
catcher A.J. Pierzynski -
but they return much of
the same team that won
the World Series.
They will rely on youth
and inexperience at
some positions, though.
The Red Sox appear
to be giving full-time
jobs to young shortstop
Xander Bogaerts and
outfielder Jackie Bradley
Jr., after the departures of
Stephen Drew and Jacoby
Ellsbury. They also lost
some depth in the rota-
tion when starter Ryan
Dempster announced
he wouldn't pitch this
season.
With the return of last
season's starting lineup,

workout at Charlotte Sports Park. While the team's mantra is "champions eat last," the staff is
focusing on some small, but key, areas that were exposed in the losses against Boston last year.

EARNED RUNS


By JOSH VITALE
SPORTS WRITER
PORT CHARLOTTE -
Tampa Bay might have the
best bullpen in baseball.
On paper.
Its closer, Grant Balfour,
finished last season with
38 saves. Its setup men,
Joel Peralta and Jake
McGee, combined to
post a 3.69 ERA over 151
appearances last season.
And its two newest addi-
tions, Heath Bell and Juan
Carlos Oviedo, have closer
experience: a combined
258 saves during the past
five years.
That's how the Rays look
on paper. If they hope to
unseat the Boston Red Sox
as American League East
champs, the bullpen must
deliver.
"If we perform the
way we should, I think
we're going to be the best
bullpen in the league,"
Peralta said. "To me, we
had a top-three bullpen in
the league the last couple
of years, so with the
names we got, we should
be better than last year."
The bullpen needs to be
better against the Red Sox,
who won the division by
51/2 games over the Rays.
The difference: The Red
Sox won six games against
the Rays in the ninth
inning or later, including
three walk-off victories at
Fenway Park.
There's also room for
improvement overall.
The Rays finished 18th
in bullpen ERA and 13th
in saves last season.
Balfour must be the same
pitcher he has been over
the past two seasons. The
right-hander saved 62
games in 67 chances with


Oakland in 2012-13 with a
2.56 ERA.
If he can post similar
numbers in the first
season of his second stint
in Tampa Bay, he will be
an upgrade over departed
closer Fernando Rodney,
who blew eight saves in 45
tries last season and saw
his ERA balloon by nearly
three full runs over the
record-setting 0.60 mark
he posted in 2012.
Rodney was 0-1 with
three saves against the
Red Sox, but he gave up a
grand slam to Mike Carp,
the first batter he faced
in the 10th inning of a tie
game. The 7-3 loss was
charged to Peralta, who
allowed the three runners.
Peralta and McGee will
also be key cogs for the
Rays. Peralta should ben-
efit from having to pitch
less he led the league
with 80 appearances last
season and McGee
is working on adding a
curveball to his repertoire.
"We have a chance to
really shorten the game
up nicely," Rays manager
Joe Maddon said. "When
you've got a deeper
bullpen like that, it's a
much better chance of
sustaining winning streaks
and not running people
into the ground."
Bell could be the key to
the Rays' bullpen success.
Tampa Bay acquired him
from Arizona in a three-
team trade this offseason.
The 36-year-old ranked
among the best closer in
the league from 2009-11,
averaging 44 saves per
season and making three
consecutive All-Star teams
as a member of San Diego.
But Bell has struggled
since. He finished 2012


with a 5.09 ERA and 19
saves as Miami's closer.
After being traded to the
Diamondbacks, he saved
15 games in place of
injured closer J.J. Putz and
finished with a 4.11 ERA.
Maddon has liked what
he's seen from Bell. He
said the veteran right-
hander is in great shape,
and the manager likes his
attitude in the clubhouse
and on the field.
"He's a guy that, right
now, I'm really impressed
with his work and how
he's going about his
business. He's really easy
to talk with. I've kind of
enjoyed my conversations
with him. It seems like
this guy is absolutely an
open book right now. He's
trying to get better, and I
love that," Maddon said.
"He could be really, really
crucial to us winning."
If Bell can recapture
some of the success he
had with the Padres,
Maddon would essentially
have two closer.
And if Oviedo can re-
solve his visa issues before
the start of the season, the
Rays could have three for-
mer closer pitching at the
back end of their bullpen.
Oviedo missed all of last
season after undergoing
Tommy John surgery, but
he saved 92 games for
the Marlins from 2009-
2011 his name was Leo
Nunez then. Peralta said
Oviedo's velocity looked
like it was coming back
when he saw him throw in
the Dominican Republic
during the offseason.
"We're all not looking
to close; we're looking to
help the team win," Bell
said. "I think everybody in
the bullpen can help the
team win."

Rays seek a
return to AL's
top 10 in runs,
hits and HRs
By JOSH VITALE
SPORTS WRITER
For years, the Tampa
Bay Rays have consistent-
ly been one of the fastest
teams in baseball. They
ranked in the league's top
six in stolen bases every
year from 2006 to 2012,
leading the league three
of those seasons.
But the speed that had
become a staple in Tampa
Bay all but disappeared
last year. After stealing
more than 130 bases in
every season since 2006,
the Rays swiped just 73 in


2013, finishing 21st in the
majors.
Tampa Bay doesn't
appear poised to get
back to their running
ways in 2014, either. The
Rays lineup looks, on
paper, to be one of the
strongest they've fielded
in recent years, but they
lack the speed threats
they were known for in
the late 2000s. After years
of being terrors on the
basepaths, the Rays are
built to showcase a more
balanced offensive attack.
"In the batter's box,
offensively, I think we're
going to be good," Rays
executive vice president
Andrew Friedman said
before spring training
started two weeks ago.
"With some ability to run
the bases and being good


defenders it's hard to
find that balance, and
I think we have a very
well-balanced group of
position players."
It's not a shift in philos-
ophy, though. The Rays
simply don't have the
personnel to run as much
as they did in the past.
Gone are burners such
as Carl Crawford and B.J.
Upton, and in their place
are Wil Myers, Ben Zobrist
and David Dejesus.
Their top stolen base
threat is outfielder
Desmond Jennings, who
has averaged nearly 24
stolen bases per season
over the past three years.
And if you look at his
minor league track re-
cord, he has the potential

Intriguing
possibilities
line up for
final spots
By JOSH VITALE
SPORTS WRITER
PORT CHARLOTTE
- The Tampa Bay Rays
already know who their
everyday players are go-
ing to be. They return all
nine starters from the end
of last season, so don't
expect position battles
during spring training.
The few spots up for
grabs are at the end of
their roster, and one of
the questions the Rays
hope to answer is wheth-
er they have enough
depth.
While he may lack the
proven depth of Luke
Scott, Kelly Johnson and
Sam Fuld from last year,
manager Joe Maddon has
plenty of options.
"There's going to be
that competition for
those spots," he said. "But
there's some really good
candidates for all those
roles."
One of those bench
spots has been decided:
The Rays plan to carry
catchers Ryan Hanigan
and lose Molina. Every
team in baseball has a
backup catcher to spell
the starter a few days a
week, and the Rays will be
no different.
Another bench spot
likely will be occupied
by utility man Sean
Rodriguez, who has
averaged more than 114
games played for Tampa
Bay over the last four
seasons, including 96 last
year.
Assuming the Rays stick
to the major-league norm
of carrying 12 pitchers
and 13 hitters, That leaves
two spots to fill during
spring training.
Logan Forsythe, a utility
man the Rays acquired
from San Diego in an
offseason seven-player
trade, has experience
playing second, third,
shortstop and both
corner outfield spots.
"That was kind of
the purpose for getting
me over here: to help
this team out, versatili-
ty-wise," Forsythe said.
"They can use me in a lot
of different ways."
Forsythe struggled at
the plate last season, bat-
ting .214 as a foot injury
kept him sidelined until
early June and limited

Sean Rodriguez, who has
played at least five positions
in three of his four seasons
with Tampa Bay, is the
prototypical reserve for
manager Joe Maddon.

him to 75 games. But he
batted a promising .273
with six home runs and
23 RBIs over 91 games
with the Padres in 2012,
and he was a career .286
hitter in the minors.
Forsythe isn't a sure bet
to break camp with the
Rays, though. Maddon
said he has been im-
pressed with former New
YorkYankees utility man
Jayson Nix, and veteran
infielder Wilson Betemit
could be an option if he
can resolve visa issues in
the Dominican Republic.
Maddon has always
prized versatile players,
and any one of the three
- especially Forsythe -
fits that bill.
'All these guys are
really interesting guys,"
Maddon said. "When
you're trying to put these
groups together, just
to have guys work on
this field and that field,


normally you'll have just
enough guys to work on
what you consider the
'A' field, but (this year)
there's a bleeding over
into the 'B' field with
some really good guys....
That's just indicative of
the good names we have."
The Rays also have
a group of outfielders
fighting for roster spots,
notably Kevin Kiermaier
and Brandon Guyer.
The 23-year-old
Kiermaier made his ma-
jor-league debut in last
season's American League
wild card game. The
28-year-old Guyer was a
.297 hitter in the minors
before a torn labrum and
a broken finger cost him
large parts of the 2012
and 2013 seasons.
Either could provide
some of the speed and
power on the bench
supplied last season by
Fuld and Scott. Kiermaier
stole 75 bases over four
seasons in the minors,
and Guyer has shown
double-digit home run
potential.
Solidifying the lineup is
a good beginning, but the
Rays need to back up that
starting nine with a solid
bench if they're going to
pass the Red Sox in the AL
East and compete better
late in games.
"The more depth you
have, the better for the
team," Forsythe said. "You
can give your everyday
guys a little break here
and there, play matchups
a little bit better. It's very
useful."

for more. Jennings averaged
more than 31 stolen bases per
season through his first six
seasons in the minor leagues,
totaling more than 45 steals
twice.
"When we need a bag and
I'm on the bases, I feel like
I definitely have to get it,"
Jennings said. "Put us in a sit-
uation to win. If I can get into
scoring position, I definitely
need to make it count."
Jennings stole just 20 bases
last season after stealing a
career-high 31 in 2012, but he
said he needs "to run more"
this season. Groin, finger,
neck and hamstring injuries
hampered the 27-year-old last
season, so a healthier cam-
paign could help him get back
to form on the basepaths.
Maddon expects the same
thing from his young out-
fielder. The Rays didn't limit
Jennings on the bases last year,
but the ninth-year manager
said injuries, as well as strug-
gles getting on base, led to his
dip in production.
"I think during the course of
the season sometimes he has
run out of gas a little bit. We al-
ways had to watch his playing

legs on the turf," Maddon said
of Jennings, who added 10-15
pounds during the offseason.
"I think he understands the
length of the season now and
what it takes to compete the
whole year."
Jennings' 20 steals last
season were nine more than
anyone else on the team.
Zobrist ranked second with 11,
and no one else finished with
more than eight.

By JOSH VITALE
SPORTS WRITER
PORT CHARLOTTE -If
you askWil Myers, he'll
tell you that every player
has at least one moment
in his baseball career,
a play on the field, that
haunts them.
Myers' moment came
during Game 1 of the
American League Division
Series last year. It has
been replayed endlessly.
The Tampa Bay Rays
rookie right fielder was
tracking a fly ball off the
bat of Boston's David Ortiz
near the wall in Fenway
Park, but he inexplicably
stopped. The ball landed
on the warning track just
a few feet behind him and
bounced over the wall for
a ground-rule double.
"That was the toughest
thing I've ever had to deal
with in baseball. Facing
the media, hearing people
chant my name it was
one of those things that,
you know, it happens,"
Myers said. "That really
drove me this offseason
to get better and never
let something like that
happen again."
Myers dedicated himself
to improving as a fielder.
Any day it "was over 50
degrees," the reigning
American League Rookie
of the Year was out on a
field at college campuses
near the home he rented
in North Carolina, run-
ning routes, throwing and
fielding balls off the bat.
"That's the biggest way
to improve your defense
is just doing game, live
stuff," Myers said. "You
can work on footwork and
things like that all you
want, but you don't really
get a big benefit from that.

Tampa Bay acquired catcher
Ryan Hanigan because of his
defensive skills and his ability
to handle a pitching staff.
The biggest thing is just
playing balls off the bat.
Getting the reps is the
biggest way to improve."
Myers showed the
potential to be a solid
defender during his rookie
season. He didn't commit
an error in 77 regular-sea-
son games and made two
outfield assists.
But he made mistakes,
most notably his gaffe in
Boston. Now that Myers is
more comfortable with his
surroundings and ready to
begin his first full season
in the majors, manager
Joe Maddon said there
will be more emphasis on
improving his defense.
"It's not that he's not
capable," Maddon said.
"He did some really nice
stuff last year. Routes and
jumps and range, he was
pretty good. He made a
couple of mistakes last
year, and when you make
mistakes in big moments
when the glare is one
you, it's going to take a
little chunk out of you, it's
going to cut a little deeper.
That happened, but I

don't want those couple
of moments to say he's
not a good defender. He
is. He can be a very good
defender."
Myers gives the Rays
potential to field one
of the best defenses in
baseball. They return
four 2013 AL Gold Glove
finalists to a defense that
finished last season with
the second fewest errors
in the majors. David
Dejesus and Desmond
Jennings round out the
solid outfield, and catch-
ers Ryan Hanigan and
Jose Molina are among
the game's best defenders
behind the plate.
Dejesus and Jennings
finished last season with
a combined six assists
compared to just two
errors. Hanigan's 3.63
catcher ERA is the lowest
of any active backstop,
and Molina ranks fifth
among active catchers
with a 34.5 caught-steal-
ing percentage.
Tampa Bay ranked
second in the majors last
season in both fielding
percentage and errors,
behind Baltimore. If Myers
raises his game, the Rays
could finish No. 1.
"Once you reach that
particular level, you have
to maintain that partic-
ular level," Maddon said.
"Coming off a Rookie
of the Year season, I
believe he's going to be
motivated."

Science can solve
Sunshine Lake issue
J know what you're thinking, "Again
with the science? That's all you talk
about." Well, humor me for one
more colunm, please.
Last Friday, I drove my daughter,
Angelique, to the Argonauta Scholars
presentation at Edison State College
in Fort Myers. It was one of the special
awards she won at the regional science
fair, along with one from the Native
Plant Society (surprising, since she
kills all her plants and grinds them
into a pulp, but whatever).
Turns out, Charlotte County students
were well represented with Argonauta
awards this year. Pictures will be
forthcoming in a week or two, but in the
meantime, I'd like to talk about a project
from 2012 Argonauta scholar Will Morris.
Morris presented a project he designed
and implemented with his partner,
Connor Sekula. They assessed nutrient
levels in the retention ponds around
Fort Myers High School. Then they built
floating islands of native plants using
recycled and biodegradable materials, and
installed one in each pond. The floating
islands demonstrated statistically signifi-
cant reduction of nutrient levels, including
phosphorus and nitrogen, the same nutri-
ents that are contributing to the buildup
of exotic algae in Sunshine Lake.
The cost? Ten dollars and change, plus
labor for harvesting native plants off the
side of a road and building the islands. That
was music to my cheap, tax-paying ears.
While the remediation of Sunshine Lake
is taking care of the big mess, a long-term
concern is maintaining nutrient levels
once the algae is gone. Floating islands
maybe an easily replenished and cheap
answer. These islands are easy enough
that our students can build these, too.
Pointing fingers and laying blame
does nothing to solve the long-term
concerns over Sunshine Lake. While
it's true we are paying significantly
more now for remediation because of
the delay in treatment, this is an issue
that will continue to require time,
money and effort to keep the situation
under control.
Two students from Fort Myers just
proved that reducing nutrient levels can
be cheap and easy and when it comes
to taxpayer money, that's a good thing.

HERALD CORRESPONDENT
Pizza lovers in the Northeastern Port
Charlotte area have another option for
feeding their cravings. Pizza Hut is now
located at 925 Kings Highway next to
Starbucks. As of Jan. 30, the carry-out
and delivery only unit is open for busi-
ness and ready to serve area customers.
General Manager Valerie Troxell was
born and raised in Southwest Florida.
She's pleased to be a part of Pizza Hut's
fast-paced environment. Working so
close to home for a corporation that
reaches around the globe is an added
bonus.
"What I look forward to most is being
in this community," said Troxell. "The
Deep Creek, Harbor Heights and Kings
Highway areas have been waiting for
a Pizza Hut for a long time. I'm really
excited about being able to serve the
customers."
Rocco Dimase is a New York native.
After moving to the Deep Creek area, he
learned that the nearest Pizza Hut was
quite a distance away from home. Now
that the Kings Highway Pizza Hut has
opened, Dimase couldn't be happier.

PIZZA: Chain restaurant opens 100th location in Southwest Florida near interstate


FROM PAGE 1

"It's very convenient," said Dimase.
"It's pretty cool having one right in the
neighborhood."
Since the store is not a dine-in facility,
customers will not find Pizza Hut's
popular buffet. But all of the classics are
on the menu, including pizza, pasta,
breadsticks, cheese sticks, wings and
more. In addition, the new Pizza Hut is
also aWingStreet hybrid combo unit.
This means that customers will have a
greater variety of wing choices.
Customers will be served by a group
of courteous and eager employees.
From teens to adults, the team at Pizza
Hut covers a wide range of age levels.
With staff members that speak Spanish,
Russian, French, and a form of Creole
in addition to English, virtually anyone
should be able to order a pizza.
"We have a great diversity," contin-
ued Troxell.
Sixteen-year-old Makayla Grange was
one of the first to be hired at Pizza Hut.
She's enthusiastic about her venture
into the workforce.
"I'm excited about the experience.
It's my first job and I like it so far," said
Grange. "I think Pizza Hut was a good
choice."
Everyone who works at Pizza Hut
receives a copy of the "Little Red Book."
Printed on the pages, employees can
find Pizza Hut's five recipes for hospi-
tality give an inviting welcome, con-
nect with everyone, take pride, respect
yourself and give something back.
Troxell lives by these recipes, and
it's evident that she has instilled the
underlying values into her entire team.
By taking pride in their work, and
treating both customers and fellow
team members with respect and kind-
ness, the recipes have almost become

second nature to everyone who works

ployees are encouraged to get involved

tions like the American Cancer Society,

'Any items that are not used or
were not prepared well-enough for
the customer are donated to a local
organization that feeds the homeless,"

Pizza Huts in the nation, and more

territories around the world, Troxell's


store holds a unique distinction the

GOLF: Tee off and fight cancer March 7


FROM PAGE 1

hope to raise the bar a little higher this
year.
The event is $60 for members, $75 for
nonmembers and $25 for non golfers.
The price includes the tournament,
dinner at the country club and
entertainment by singer and musician
Denny Pezzin. The registration dead-
line is Feb. 28. DaRos said if anyone
participating in the tournament is a
cancer survivor, organizers would like
to know ahead of the tournament so
they can "properly honor all survivors."
Registration will start at 11 a.m.,
as will pre-game events, including a
four-member team putting event in
which each member of the team gets
one put shot through a maze. The
tournament is a "shotgun start" event,
with teams of four.
"If someone wants to play, but they
don't have a team, our golf shop will set
them up with other players to create
one," DaRos said.
The two best balls will count toward
the team score. The event will include a
silent auction, raffle and 50/50 tickets.
DaRos said memorial and survivor
floating candles will also be available
for purchase $10 for one, $15 for
two.
"The candles will be lit and floating
in one of our ponds while the tourna-
ment is going on," DaRos said.
Mark Twain once described golf as
"a good walk ruined." However, this
tournament has a few perks to make
the outcome a little better.
"You're allowed to buy mulliganss'
which is a 'do-over' in golf," DaRos said.
'And one of our golf pros, Adam Miller
- for a $1 a shot will take a shot for
a golfer across the water so the ball
doesn't land in the pond. So, you get to
cheat a little bit."

Welcome back,

According to the American Cancer
Society, breast cancer is the most com-
mon cancer among American women,
aside from skin cancers. The ACS
estimates about one in eight women in
the United States will develop invasive
breast cancer during their life.
Breast cancer rates began to decline
in 2000, the ACS said. Although, the
ACS estimates more than 232,000 new
cases of invasive breast cancer will be
diagnosed this year and another 40,000
will die from the disease.
The age group with the biggest im-
provement in survival rates is women
older than 50, according to the ACS,
and it is estimated there are more than
2.8 million breast cancer survivors in
the country.
The statistics for prostate cancer are
almost identical to those for breast
cancer.
Prostate cancer is the most common
cancer in American men, second only
to skin cancers, the American Cancer
Society reports. ACS projects in 2014,
about 233,000 new cases of prostate
cancer will be diagnosed and about
one in seven men will be diagnosed
with the disease in their life. The ACS
estimates about 29,480 men will die
from the disease this year.
Although a serious disease, most
cases are not fatal, according to the
American Cancer Society. The survival
rates for men diagnosed with prostate
cancer is above 90 percent all the way
up to 15 years after initial diagnosis, the
American Cancer Society reports. The
ACS states there are more than
2.5 million prostate cancer survivors in
the United States.
For more information, contact
Kingsway's golf shop at 941-625- 8898.
To purchase the survivor candles, call
co-chairs Gail DaRos at 941-240-6175
or Vivian Hendricks at 941-575-9753.

Confident Pirates grill the Gators


By STEVE KNAPP
HERALD SPORTS WRITER

A lot of the credit for the 54-49
win over the Island Coast Gators on
Jan. 24 can be given to the game the
Pirates lost to Charlotte on Dec. 16.
In the game against the Tarpons,
the Pirates fell behind 12-0 before
they scored their first point and
trailed by 14 points at the half. They
fought their way back to be down by
one point with 23 seconds left before
they lost.
Pirate Coach Leighton Bowie said,
"We got confidence from that game.
How we battled back after looking so
bad in the first half gave our boys the
confidence that they needed today."
They would need that confidence
along with a strong game to beat the
Gators who were 14-4 before their


visit to Port Charlotte. The Gators
had crushed the Pirates on Jan. 8
with a score of 84-51. That score
was written on the chalkboard in
the locker room as a reminder for
the team. The Pirates committed 24
turnovers and their leading scorer in
that game, Isaac Almanzar, sprained
his right knee two weeks ago and is
out for the season.
The Pirates came out shooting
and let the Gators know they were
in for a battle in the Pirate Cove.
Matt Washington was smooth with
a sweet sleight of hand shot around
two defenders and big Kyle Todd was
unstoppable under the basket. Zach
Specht put the exclamation mark
to the opening eight minutes with
a long trey to put the Pirates ahead
16-10.
The Pirates clung to a 27-25 lead


at the half, which was pretty good
considering the first game the Pirates
trailed 40-25 against the Gators.
The third period saw the Pirates
get off to a slow start as a Gator steal
and basket gave them their first lead
of the game at 32-31.
Washington had a chance to put
the Pirates back on top but surpris-
ingly missed two free throws. Two
consecutive possessions ended with
bad passes that were converted into
Gator baskets and the Gators took
their biggest lead of the game at
36-31. It could have been an easy
time for the Pirates to circle the
wagons and quit.
The Gators held a 38-37 lead en-
tering the final quarter. Washington
sunk two free throws to put the
Pirates back on top, after falling
behind again, Todd sunk a pair
from the charity stripe to regain
the lead. Andrew Griffith, Todd and
Washington all found the bottom
of the net in a 6-2 run that gave the
Pirates a 47-42 lead.
Twice in the final minute, Specht
went to the free throw line with a
one and one situation and calmly
made all four shots.
Each time it gave the Pirates a
six-point lead.


Leading by three points,
Washington was fouled. He had a
one and one, and if he had missed
the first shot the Gators could have
tied the game. Washington easily
sunk both shots to put the game out
of reach and give the Pirates a well-
deserved 54-49 win.
Washington had sunk four straight
free throws after his two missed
shots and Sprecht buried his four
crucial shots with no signs of
pressure at all.
"It's like you're shooting at home
and you don't even think about the
pressure," said Sprecht.
Todd led the Pirates with 22 points,
mostly from close-range shots after
camping out under the net.
"I guess they didn't respect my
offense, so I had to show them to
give me some respect I guess. We had
a bad game last time, but this time
we boxed out and did what we were
supposed to do. It felt great to win,"
Todd said.
"When we fell behind in that third
quarter, I wasn't worried. We've been
in that position before, and the boys
have always responded well and they
did again tonight. It's all about confi-
dence and that Charlotte game gave
us a lot of confidence," said Bowie.


The Pirates' Kyle Todd gets fouled as he goes to the hoop in the 54-49 win over the Island Coast
Gators. Todd led Port Charlotte with 22 points.

Call. He said the need for heating
fuels is now in short supply.
Only two local dealers currently
have kerosene and diesel fuel for
heating use. Call will have an emer-
gency meeting with Civil Defense
Director Col. D.T. Raschke to deal
with the problem.
The good news is that the winter
had been mild up to now.

New addition at Medical
Center Hospital
Medical Center Hospital will be
Punta Gorda's newest high-rise
building. A four-floor addition will
be completed in October, giving the
hospital 150 beds.
This announcement came from
administrative assistant James
Broadham. The new section cost
$2.8 million, and it will be financed
through current operating expenses
and the issuance of bonds later this
year.
Also being constructed adjacent
to the new section are a new parking
area and a helicopter landing site.

Auto mechanics course
offered to ladies
"Tender Lovin' Car Care" is the
subject of a class now offered to
Charlotte County women by a qualified
professional mechanic at Port Charlotte
Junior High School. The course is not an
attempt by "Women's Lib."
The class is intended to prepare
women for occasional emergencies of
motoring. The course started in January.
The catalyst for the class came from
a Charlotte Harbor housewife who kept
having car trouble on a vacation trip.
She bought three new batteries for a


nearly new car. Mrs. Victor Desguin
started her vacation trip with three sons
and her sister, but the car failed her
disastrously. It simply stopped, once in
Atlanta's downtown traffic and again
in the jam of the District of Columbia
Beltway.
Charlotte County's Community
Education, designed to be responsible
to people's needs, "got it all together."
Now, ladies are learning what it means
when the red light comes on. The atten-
dance records of the class are high.


Letter to the editor


Re: Slow Down
Dear Editor:
It happened again. Another car
plunged into the Olman Waterway
near the intersection of Gardner and
Edgewater drives. That makes it four or
five times in short order.
Action to prevent further tragedies is
long past due.
In this residential section, lives of our


children are continuously endan-
gered by speeders or careless drivers.
Our neighborhood is pleading for
enforcement of the 30 MPH speed
limit. Thank you.

CRAFT BEER
TREND TAKES OVER P6 BARS
BY GORDON BOWER, PGH CORRESPONDENT


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of a
two-part series on the growth of craft beer
in Punta Gorda. This week's story looks at
trends, who is drinking it and why. Next
week's story will focus on the beer and how
to get started drinking it, as well as profiles
of a couple of local brewmasters.
he numbers don't lie. No matter
how you analyze them, the craft
beer industry is booming. While
the overall beer market has been stagnant
or declining during the economic
recession, craft beers, also called
microbrews after the size of the


breweries, have managed to show steady
growth every year since the early 1990s.
Reams of statistics documenting this
trend can be found on Internet sites. Here
are a couple of significance: more than
2,500 craft breweries are producing beer
today, the most since pre-Prohibition
days, and thousands more are planned
or underway, including one right here in
Punta Gorda. Depending on the measur-
ing stick production, consumption,
market share or sales craft beers now
own 7 to 10 percent of the total. Last year,

EDITOR'S INSIGHTS


PUNTA GORDA


] Pamela Staik
(- NrmmG


I '.."


Pamela Stalk is the editor of the
Punta Gorda Herald. Contact her at
pgherald@sun-herald.com.


s part of my birthday festivities
last October, I arranged a group
vacation to Gainesville, where
my best college buds, family and some
co-workers could cheer on the Univer-
sity of Florida Gators. While in town, a
cousin arranged for the group to stop
by a tailgate, where the beverages of
choice were nearly clear, low calorie
beer options.
It tasted just like I remember:
college, freedom and not much else.
Like most college kids, my expo-
sure to beer came down to price
and quantity. It wasn't until after I
graduated that I was introduced to the
wonderful world of European imports
and American-made craft brews. It


took some adjusting, but with the help
of friends with advanced beer tastes,
like co-worker Rob Shore and his
girlfriend Leslie Deppert, I have been
introduced to a litany of tasty bev-
erages. Today, IPAs (India Pale Ales)
are my top choice of brew, and my
boyfriend and I are often searching
the state for upcoming beer tasting
and festivals.
We're just part of the growing beer
trend that is taking over Punta Gorda.
The first of a two-part series on this
trend appears in this week's Punta
Gorda Herald. Give it a read and head
on down to your favorite drinking spot
for a taste.
Cheers, Punta Gorda.

networking event at the Visual Arts
Center, 210 Maud St., Punta Gorda.


Volunteers fuel Jazz Fest success


his Wine & Jazz Festival proved
once more how Punta Gorda can
shine.
A huge thank you to all who attend-
ed, supported, promoted and helped
in any way to make this year's event
run so smoothly. Operating an event
such as this is no easy feat. It requires
months of planning and endless hours
of processing and adjusting.
The Punta Gorda Chamber of
Commerce puts the event on every
year, and I want to thank all of the
volunteers who help us every year to fill
in all the gaps. You are too numerous
to name individually, but you all know
who you are and how loved you are.
A sizable event such as this cannot
be produced without an engaged and
proactive board of directors, who all
support this endeavor to the fullest and
for which we thank them. My heartfelt
thanks go out to Stephanie Stewart,
Kay Hill, Tyler Van Marter and Martha
Litson, chamber staff members who
have been engaged to this festival for
months now. Many of you have spoken
to them over the phone or been in
written communication with them. The
way they respond and step up to the
plate is truly laudable.
Then there is Pat Oliva. Without her
lists of lists of lists, the festival simply
would not be what it is today. I cannot
tell you the work and time she and her
husband put into ensuring the success
of this event. She is a truly dedicated
professional and leaves no stone un-
turned in making sure every aspect of the
festival works to its very best. She will be
reaching a landmark birthday next week,
so now is her time to kick up her heels
and celebrate the amazing person she is.
Thank you all.

Discover 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. 28), 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.

Punta Gorda Councilwoman Kim Devine,
Fishermen's Village's Patti Allen, Punta

Haymans, One Blood's Blair Lovejoy and
several other local celebrities, we will be

This will be a fun and hilarious event,
where attendees are the sleuth.

Air show pre-party
tickets for sale
Coming up soon is a very exciting and
exclusive collaboration between the
Florida International Air Show and the
chamber. On March 28, a Friday Night
Pre-Show Exclusive Party is being staged
out at the air field.
Starting at 5:30 p.m., ticket holders
will be able to spend time in a special
VIP tent for viewing both a dusk and
nighttime special air show, followed by a
spectacular fireworks display.
Also included in the ticket price will
be a barbecue supper and two compli-
mentary drink tickets, the opportunity
to meet the weekend's performers and a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to shake
hands and talk to Gen. Richard Cole,
who was co-pilot to Jimmy Dolittle and,
therefore, a Dolittle Raider.
Tickets are limited and are all-inclusive
at $75 per person. They can be pur-
chased exclusively in the online payment
center of the chamber's website or by


calling the chamber office during regular
office hours. Credit card, check and cash

Sheryl "Shorty" Peters' bar is a haven for craft beer
drinkers. Just a few feet inside the front door is a wall
of 16 taps, most of them crafts, with a cooler on the
other side to keep the beer kegs at the right tempera-
ture. That's just a down payment on the craft taps to be
found in the rest of the bar.

case, he's working on a Belgium-style IPA by Flying Dog
Brewery.

production grew nearly 10 percent.
The whole craft beer trend started in
the Pacific Northwest back in the 1990s
and has expanded from that base. Now
it's nationwide, with the West Coast,
mountain states, the upper Midwest
and the urban Northeast leading the
charge. The Southeast U.S. and Florida
are only now catching up.
That's changing rapidly.
Punta Gorda is now home to a large
number of craft beer lovers who indulge
their taste for more flavorful brews at an
increasing number of bars, restaurants
and even liquor stores and grocery
stores, where bottled and canned crafts
are available.

why many restaurants are starting to
offer craft beers on tap. They are home
brewers, regulars at Punta Gorda bars
and willing to travel from Tampa to Fort
Myers searching out interesting craft
beers and restaurants.
Nancy said, "If a restaurant doesn't
have what we like to drink, we don't eat
there."
Most of the craft beer drinking goes
on in local bars like the Celtic Ray, Ice
House Pub and Shorty's because of the
selection available.
Kevin and Max Doyle of the Ray have
always focused on European beers, but
Max, a fan of craft beers, finally talked

the old man into adding crafts. They
usually have three available and rotate
two of the taps to provide variety.
Kevin Doyle has an easy answer to the
question of why an Irish pub is selling
American craft beer.
"We tried to keep it European," he
said, "but the Americans got so much
better. Take IPAs (India Pale Ale), for
example. It originated in England for
the troops in India. It had a lot of hops
to keep the beer alive while it was
being shipped to India. Now, American
brewers are better than the English at
their own brew."
Daryl Fry, general manager of the
Ice House, said he has 34 beers on tap,
many of them craft, and more too nu-
merous to count are available in bottles.
Just like the Ray, craft beers are an
enormous hit even though the Ice
House is an English-style pub. The list
is kept on a chalk board that's updated
daily because the selection changes so
often.
The customers wouldn't have it any
other way.
Fry said, "People here are not as put
off as they used to be when they find
out we don't have macrobrews here.
They'll try something, and now they
know what we're doing. They say, 'Hey,
what you got?' They are hollering,
'What's new?' They look up on the board
and call out, "Have you tapped that
yet?"
Shorty's Place in downtown is a
popular attraction for microbrew lovers.


Co-owner Sheryl "Shorty" Peters said,
"Our heart is in the craft beer even
though we still sell more mass-market
beer."
Her place has done so well she's in
constant expansion mode. She's gone
from 12 total taps when she opened
and is now up to 32, and 26 of them are
crafts.
"They do move well," she said.
"During the day, it's the mass market
beer drinkers. At night, it's the craft beer
crowd."

Who's drinking craft beers
You'll get different answers if you
ask beer lovers or saloon owners who
is drinking the craft beers popping up
around town. Peters and the Doyles
think it's primarily a younger crowed
turning to them, while Fry pointed to
an older crowd, especially those who
hail from upper Midwest states like
Michigan and the urbanized East Coast,
both well stocked with microbreweries.
The ultimate answer is that pretty
much everybody is drinking them.
While on the hunt for aficionados, a
quick tour of bars on President's Day
turned up, among others, a retired
couple who started as home brewers, a
Charlotte Sun sportswriter, a Charlotte
County schoolteacher and a motorcycle
enthusiast from Arcadia where crafts are
hard to find. That's a motley crew.
Maurine and Rob McConnell devel-
oped their beer drinking taste buds after


doing some home brewing. On this day,
they were just finishing up a couple of
crafts at the Celtic Ray.
Maurine said of their home brewing,
"It's wonderful if you don't get too cheap
or in a hurry. We've made 10 batches
and only had a couple of disasters.
Good beer takes a week."
They also have the advantage of being
from Kalamazoo, Mich., smack in the
middle of Michigan's thriving brewery
scene, and it's where they became
accustomed to quality beer.
Rob said, "Bell's and Grey Horse (two
famous and highly sought-after crafts)
are made 30 miles from our house."
At the Ice House, Sun sportswriter
Rob Shore was having a pint of Hopped
on the High Seas IPA while doing
beer research for his next vacation on
a laptop computer. That's right. He
vacations exclusively in areas filled
with high-quality microbreweries. His
love affair with good beer is not news
to friends and co-workers; he's co-au-
thored a column on the topic for the
Punta Gorda Herald and probably has
more varieties of craft beer under his
belt than anyone in town.
"It's been 20 years, roughly, in terms
of craft beer," he said of his drinking
history. "In college, my first thought was
to drink for quantity."
He discovered Red Hook, a popular
local craft beer, while still in college in
Tacoma, Wash. He loved its flavor and
now revels in the craft beer craze.
He said, "Red Hook's flavor was very


distinctive; it was brewed nearby in
Ballard, Wash.. .That was all that was
available until the craft beer explosion
in the last 10 years, or even the last 5."
Shore's friend, Andrew Campbell,
downing a Bell's Two Hearted IPA with
lunch, said he discovered craft beer
when the Ice House opened and drinks
nothing else. Down the bar, teacher
Chris Byrne was nursing a Cigar City
Cubano-Style Espresso Brown Ale.
He said of craft beer, "I like the vari-
ety; I'm an experimentalist. I come here
because they always have something
fresh and different."
Arcadia motorcycle enthusiast Pat
Krieter rides over to Shorty's frequently
to sample Peters' craft beer selection.
"I drink Bud Light, but I burn out on
it," he said while sipping an IPA. "I'd
much rather have a microbrew, and I
drink them when I can get them."

Fad or trend?
Knowledgeable analysts of drinking
behavior point to a number of reasons
for craft beers' recent surge in popu-
larity people wanting more flavorful
and unique-tasting beers, more variety
and better quality. Also, there has
been an overall shift in taste in favor
of artisanal and local products in both
food and drink. That all these factors
mirror trends in our broader society
and culture suggest craft beers will be
around for a long time.
Most local beer drinkers will cite one


or more of these reasons for drinking
crafts, with flavor and variety topping
the list.
Nancy Bever said, "A lot of beer
drinkers are not used to something
that has a flavor. Every craft beer has
a different flavor from the hops and
the grains and the roasted grains. We
like craft beers just because they taste
good."
Krieter said, "You get a Bud Light,
you know what it's going to taste like
every time. Microbrews offer variety."
Kevin Doyle argues that the quality of
American craft brewing is an important
factor. Although he may be a little
biased, the senior beerologist in town
believes a surge in the number of Irish
and European pubs selling high-qual-
ity, flavorful European beers starting
in the 1990s set the stage for the craft
beer revival of today.
"You want proof of American craft
beer quality?" he said. "All bars carry
craft beers, especially pale ales and


IPAs, because American brewers have
surpassed what Europeans can do.
American craft beer is even being
imported into Europe."
Punta Gorda is full of savvy diners
and drinkers who tend to favor locally
produced consumables, and Fry counts
that as a factor in the growth of the
craft beer scene.
"We carry regional stuff from Georgia
and Mississippi," he said. "The Tampa
area has 15 or 20 breweries and
Jacksonville, nine. It's really catching
on in the state. People would rather try
something local just like they do with
food. They think it's a better product
because brewers don't speed up the
process or use chemicals."
Peters said, "A lot of people our age
enjoy craft beer, but the younger crowd
is driving it. They like its high alcohol
content and the range of flavors. That's
what's great about craft beers. No
matter what your palette is, there's a
beer out there you'll like."

Making Punta Gorda cruiser friendly


Although Punta Gorda is not a des-
tination on the IntracoastalWa-
terway, it has nonetheless made
a name for itself within the boating
community. Two years ago, TEAM Punta
Gorda's Maritime
Development
.1 ,Committee and
the Punta Gorda
Boater's Alliance
S met with noted

thor Claiborne S.
Young to find out
how they could
attract boaters to
the city.
On Feb. 14,
Young returned

and attract visiting if they had suc-

"This is a great start," Young told the
audience of 30 who gathered in the
Laishley Marina Community Room.
"You have a lot to be proud of."
Art Armstrong, chairman of the
Maritime Committee, gave a brief over-
view of what has been accomplished in
the past 24 months.
Armstrong discussed the in-
creased dockage for dinghies and
boats throughout the city, including
Fishermen's Village, Laishley Marina
and the docks at Gilchrist Landing that
were originally built by the Charlotte
Harbor Regatta Committee and then
donated to the city.
'All the wet-slip docks are full," he
said. "In the past 12 months, the Isles
Yacht Club had 140 visiting boats. In

the immediate area, we have Publix
Supermarkets, West Marine and Ace
Hardware, just a few businesses that
boaters need to stock up on provisions."
Armstrong said there are free loaner
bicycles, so visiting boaters have trans-
portation to get to the area stores to
shop. They are available at all the hotels
and waterfront shops.
"So far, 3,000 people have used our
bikes," he said. "And we will grow. The
program received 18,000 views on the
Internet."
Young, who has partnered with
TEAM Punta Gorda to promote the
city as a boater's destination, said that
the amount of money visiting cruisers
spend in ports of call is "staggering."
"A survey done by Eastern Carolina
University in my home state of North
Carolina found for every dollar spent to
get cruisers into your community, you
will get $29 in return," Young said.
Young gave the audience some
suggestions to improve and get the
word out about the amenities offered to
boaters in Punta Gorda. They include:
holding events on the waterfront;
using the words "cruiser" or
"nautical;"
having a nautical flea market;
offering a city mini-bus or van to
take visitors to the shops;
and dinghy docks at Gilchrist Park
at the Waterfront Center building that

include showers, television and free
Wi-Fi.
Young informed the crowd that
Florida has not had a good reputation
in the cruiser community because of
anchoring problems, the Florida Fish
& Wildlife Conservation Commission
conducting inspections at all hours
of the evening as well as a sales tax
collected on boats purchased outside
of the state. Also, the state will not
recognize federally documented boats
- they must be registered in a state, not
necessarily Florida, to be in compliance
with the law.
"This is the broad brush they use
that taints the entire state," he said.
"Thankfully, Punta Gorda is gaining a
very good reputation as a good spot to
stop when cruising."

round cruising events, setting up tables

at boat shows, having members travel
to give presentations to other boat
clubs promoting Charlotte Harbor and
improving services for cruisers, Punta
Gorda will be the exception, Young said.
"Promote events in the summer
months," he said. "It's no hotter or more
humid here than in Georgia, South
(Carolina) or North Carolina."
Young suggested that the committee
hold a trawler fest at Fishermen's
Village.
"It's not a typical boat show," he
explained. "Have seminars and training
classes. It's a real magnet for boaters.
To the best of my knowledge, they have
never had one on the west coast of
Florida. Events such as these will make
Punta Gorda one of the top destinations
for boaters."

Tarpon softball players top Bulldogs 9-4


he undefeated DeSoto Coun-
ty High School junior varsity
softball team knew it had a tough
game on its hands as it prepared to
take the field against the Charlotte
High School Tarpons on Feb. 6. The Tar-
pons may not have thought it would be
a challenge, but the team left the game
knowing that it had been in a fight.
After outscoring their opponents
31-2 in their first two games, includ-
ing a 19-1 win over Mariner High
School the night before, the Tarpons
came back to beat the Bulldogs 9-4.
DeSoto County struck first with a
pair of runs with two outs in the first.
It was the first time the Tarpons had
trailed all season. After the Tarpons
tied the game in their half of the sec-
ond inning, the Bulldogs scored twice
again to take a 4-2 lead. The Bulldogs
sent 14 batters up to hit in the first
two innings, but that number fell to
11 during the final three innings.
Tarpon starter Mary Boyd took

command of the game and allowed
just a two-out single in the fifth
during the last three innings. She
allowed seven hits and fanned five in
picking up her third win of the season
for Charlotte.
Bulldog starter Jayla Cowell re-
corded all three outs in the Tarpon
second, as well as a popup and two
ground balls back to the mound.
In between those outs, the Tarpons
scored twice to tie the game.
The Bulldogs barked in the bottom
of the second to regain the lead
4-2. That would end the scoring for


DeSoto County. The Tarpons scored
three in the third to take the lead
highlighted by Boyd's double to tie
the game.
Boyd scored what proved to be the
winning run later in the inning, as she
was involved in all three runs mount-
ed by the Tarpon attack.
The Tarpons flexed their muscles
in the fourth and added four more to
put the game away. While the Bulldog
offense centered around the three
and four hitters in their lineup, the
Tarpons spread their wealth around.
The Tarpons picked up eight hits as
Jessica Henry scored twice. Besides
Boyd's pair of RBIs, Kristin Knowlton
also plated two Tarpons. Amanda
Fabian doubled for the only other
Charlotte extra base hit.
"My curve ball was working really
good tonight," Boyd said.
On the other end of the pitches was
her battery mate catcher Cheyenne
"Frenchie" Gaudemer. With her arm


around Boyd's shoulder and a big
smile on her face she joked: "Our only
problem is that we don't have any
pitching. No, really, she is very good.
We just need to work on our communi-
cation. When I yell, sometimes people
don't understand me. I've got my dad's
voice."
As one of just two freshmen on the
team, Gaudemer had two of the eight
Tarpon hits.
"I was a little concerned when we
fell behind twice because this was the
first time our team had been tested this
year," said first-year Tarpon JV coach
Tony Brannon.
Brannon continued, "I didn't know
how we would react. Our defense set-
tled down, and we put the hits together
at the right time. We need to work
on our base running and a few little
mistakes here and there, but mostly
it's mental ball. Kristin Knowlton and
Jessica Henry came through with big
hits and our defense looked good."

DEAR DR. ROACH: I
am worried about my
husband, who is 52 years
old. He is thin, in good
physical health and is
taking cholesterol pills.
He works every day, and
every night he drinks 12
or more beers. I have talk-
ed to him about this, and
he gets upset. He says he
is relaxing! He reads the
paper and your column
every day. Can you write
about the effects of
drinking so much every
night and what it can do
to your body? I think he
is a functioning alcoholic.
Many nights, when he
drinks 12 or more, he
sways to the bedroom!
-V.
ANSWER: The terms
"alcoholic" and "alco-
holism," along with the
medical terms "alcohol
dependence" and "al-
cohol abuse" are now
classified as "alcohol
use disorder." It is very
common in the U.S.
and Canada, with more
than 10 percent of adults
meeting the criteria for
alcohol excess.
Excess alcohol use has
serious consequences,
increasing risk for
hepatitis and cirrhosis
of the liver, high blood
pressure, pancreatitis,
tuberculosis, pneumonia,
many cancers, dementia
and stroke, and disease of
the heart muscle.
Common symptoms
of alcohol use disorder
include a decreased
ability to control drinking
behavior, continued
drinking despite adverse
consequences, preoccu-
pation with alcohol and
distorted thinking es-
pecially denial. Drinking
quickly and drinking to
relieve stress, as your
husband has indicated,
are symptoms of loss of
control over alcohol.
While I can't make the
diagnosis of alcohol use
disorder in your husband
without a thorough
history, the amount he
is drinking and some of
the comments you have
reported make me very
concerned that he indeed
does have a real problem
with alcohol. A visit to
his doctor might include
tests looking for damage
to the liver, pancreas
and bone marrow from
alcohol.
I certainly can give your
husband specific advice
to reduce his drinking
now, since doing so will
reduce the damage the
alcohol is doing to the
body. I recommend never
exceeding five drinks at
any one time. Cutting

Working out the gyms


Dear Readers: Many
folks join gyms around the
start of the year. What is it
about that holiday weight
gain? Here are a few quick
hints for not only finding
the right gym for you, but
also for being a good gym
customer:
-When looking into
joining a gym, ask for a
free trial. Some gyms will
let you have a week free, or
at least try a class to see if
you like it.
Ask if they have any
discounts. We all know the
standard senior and mil-
itary discounts, but they
may have more, which
could save you money.
When working out,
don't take calls on your
cellphone! If you need to
keep it with you, put it on
silent and call back later!
Or step away to someplace
where you can talk without
bothering other people.
Be aware of what's go-
ing on around you! If you
see that people are waiting
for a machine or weights,
don't be a hog, and try to
keep your time limited.
If taking a group
exercise, be on time. If
you know you are going to
have to leave early, tell the
instructor, and find a spot
close to the door so you
can slip out quietly.
Hope these hints help
you and others have an
enjoyable gym experience!

R. Sell, Littlefield, Texas

Travel hint
Dear Heloise: I work in a
large airport and have two
travel hints for you. First,
a lot of bags are black.
What most travelers don't
know is that most baggage
handlers put the bags on
the system wheels up so
that they don't slide and
cause a jam. So, if you
are putting an identifying
mark on your bag, do it on
the back. It will help a lot
in finding your bag.
Second, when you sub-
mit your bag at the ticket
counter and a tag goes on,
make sure the tag is not
around both handles. If the
bag has to be inspected,
the bag tag will have to be
removed. As you know,
they are hard to separate,
but what you might not
know is that once sepa-
rated, they don't stick well
when put back together.

Open email exposes wife's ""MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce Tinsley

secret weekend rendezvous I t wI


DEAR ABBY: My wife
of 45 years is having an
online affair with a man
who is a former business
client. I found out when
she inadvertently left an
email message open on
her laptop. Her phone
records confirm daily
long-distance conversa-
tions, as well. Although
I know they have never
met personally, they plan
to meet during a weekend
convention at a hotel
in his hometown next
month.
Despite problems in
our marriage, neither of
us has strayed, and I'm
confident she doesn't
want to lose me nor do
I want to lose her. My
dilemma is whether to
tell her I know what's
going on prior to her trip,
or confront her when
she returns with pic-
tures taken by a private
investigator. I can't let
her betrayal continue.
- CONFLICTED IN THE
SOUTH
DEAR CONFLICTED:
Tell her sooner rather
than later, so she can
cancel her trip to the con-
vention. If she's willing
to do that and work on
repairing your marriage,
there is a chance that
your problems are fixable.
If she isn't, then face it -
your stressed marriage
is over. Photos from a
private investigator are
beside the point. The
email you read is proof
enough.
DEAR ABBY: Recently,
my friend went to a wake
and told me the person
in the casket was holding
a fork. My friend told me
there is a story behind
this custom. Can you tell
me what it is? DAILY
READER IN WEST PALM
BEACH, FLA.
DEAR DAILY READER:
The story, titled "Keep
Your Fork," has been
widely shared on the
Internet. It appeared in 'A
Third Serving of Chicken
Soup for the Soul" and
was authored by Roger
William Thomas.
It concerns a young
woman who had been
given only a short time
to live, and who instruct-
ed her pastor that she


Dear Abby

would like to be buried
with a fork in her right
hand. She went on to
say, "In all my years of
attending church potluck
dinners, when the dishes
of the main course were
being cleared, someone
would say, 'Keep your
fork.'"
She said the main
course was her favorite
part of the meal because
she knew "something
better was coming...
something wonderful,
and with substance."
What she wanted was to
convey to her loved ones
at her funeral her belief
that something better was
to come.
DEAR ABBY: I have
reconnected with my high
school sweetheart. We
plan to be married late
this summer. My problem
is she wants to keep her
ex-husband's name as her
middle name for the sake
of her kids.
I feel she shouldn't have
another man's name if
she's married to someone
else. I have explained
that it upsets me, but
she doesn't care. What
are your thoughts? -
TRADITIONAL MAN
DEAR TRADITIONAL:
I think her reason for
wanting to retain her
married name (and
probably hyphenate it
with yours) is a valid one.
It will prevent confu-
sion for her children at
school.
However, one line in
your letter concerns me.
It's the one in which you
say it upsets you, "but
she doesn't care." If she
didn't care about you,
she wouldn't be marrying
you. But her children
must come first, and
unless you can accept
that fact, you shouldn't
marry her.


"All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom
I loved care turned against me."-Job 19:19.
Job is not the last man who discovered that there is
but one friend "that sticketh closer than a brother,"
- and that is the Lord.

Opening lead: Six of %
South realized that he needed
tricks from the diamond suit, so he
captured East's queen of hearts with
the king at trick one and immediately
took the diamond finesse. This lost to
East's king, and the heart return
quickly defeated the contract.
South was certainly unlucky. Not
only was the diamond king offside,
but the hearts split 5-2. Had East's
second heart been the 10, the suit
would have been hopelessly blocked
when South withheld his jack on the


second round. The contract would
have been safe had the hearts split
either 4-3 or 6-1, but a safe contract
doesn't require a good declarer.
South should have taken
precautions against this lie of the
cards. He should have made the
simple but elegant play of allowing
the queen of hearts to hold the first
trick! This would scissor the
communications between the
defenders. West can establish his
long hearts, but he has no entry to
cash them. This play might cost
declarer an extra overtrick, but 10
tricks, and the contract, would be
secure.
There is a remote possibility that
West has led from two low hearts and
East has played the queen from ace-
queen-10-x-x. Should this be the
case, South must win the first heart.
This defense is not only diabolical, it
is so remote that it cannot be
considered when planning the play.
Besides, players capable of a defense
like this would be off somewhere
practicing for the World
Championships, not tormenting you!
