PUBLISHER'S INBOX


Political


pifiata

election season is a party at your com-
munity newspaper. All of our friends
come out to play. What kind of party
would it be without a pifiata?
Almost every day,
some reader takes a
big stick and whacks
us. First it is the
Democrats -whack
across our side. The
stick is handed to the
Republican reader.
Swing and a whack
across the neck. Over
and over, different
David readers of different
political persuasions
DUNN-RANKIN whackthe dangling
PRESIDENT AND PUBLISHER newspaper pifiata to
express their frustra-
tion with our obvious bias for the other
side.
Every word is examined for the appear-
ance of bias. Our news team assumes each
political news story will result in someone
taking a whack at the newspaper pifiata in
the letters to the editor about our bias. This
current political season has just started, but
is no different.
We received this correspondence from
a reader on a story about Dr. Paige Kreegel
suspending his Charlotte Harbor practice.
"Normally an article like this would not
be on the front page. Is it bias on the part
of Charlotte Sun, or Gaty Roberts has it in
for Dr Kreegel, or is it to improve ratings
for the newspaper? This article takes away
from good staff writers like Al Hemingway
and columnist Christy Feinberg. It is truly a
shame that politics can sometimes bring out
the (worst) in people."AB
Of course, AB probably doesn't mention
that Kreegel ran for the state Legislature
four different times. Four different times
our newspaper recommended him to our
readers as the right man for the job.
In North Port, we got this note from one
of our readers complaining about our obvi-
ous favoritism toward City Commissioner
LindaYates.
"This was not reporting, this was advertis-
ing, and I think North Port citizens deserve
better from our local newspaper than openly
promoting one candidate over another"
On the other hand, another story about
Yates made a different reader assume we
were biased against her.
"Is this actually news, considering the
number of people in the area so affected in
the last seven years? Maybe you're doing her
campaign a favor; empathy factor and all
that."
The next seven months will feature
many more readers taking a political
whack at the newspaper pifiata. Our winter
guests, unfortunately, will miss all the polit-
ical passion. They'll miss reading the letters
to the editor, and deciding if a particular
swing hit the pifiata hard, or maybe caught
nothing but air.
Knowing our readers from both sides will
whack us about the head and shoulders
over perceived bias, we try very hard to
avoid conflicts of interest. This year, Elaine
Allen-Emrich, who is our community news
editor in North Port, is lucky enough to
have her husband run for the North Port
City Commission. Elaine, like many of our
editors, lives in the town she works in, and
is fully engaged in North Port civic life,
from the local Kiwanis to collecting canned
goods for a backpack program for school
kids. We love our employees like Elaine
who are fully engaged in our communities,
beyond just reporting the news.
Because Elaine's husband is now a
candidate, we've moved Elaine from North
Port to our Englewood office for the rest of
the election season.
We've asked one of our rising stars, Ian
Ross, to help fill the gap created in North
Port.
We've not figured out what to do if
Elaine's husband Pete becomes a city
commissioner. Even blindfolded, readers
easily could whack that pifiata.

A dog that was set on fire March 20 in
Arcadia has been transferred to BluePearl
Veterinary Partners in Tampa to receive
further treatment.
The year-old female mixed-breed
named Hope is under the primary care
of critical care specialist Dr. John Gicking,
although several other specialists have
assisted in treating her.
"She is currently in our intensive care
unit and is receiving pain management,
treatment for her bums and other care,"

James Judge.

Calling costs


Dropped jail calls leave families perplexed


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
Amanda Kinsolving has been incar-
cerated at the Charlotte County Jail for
almost seven months, so she's become
all too familiar with making phone calls
from the facility.
And some of the problems and expens-
es that come with it.
"They've disconnected my calls at least
five times (in a three-day span)," the


26-year-old Kinsolving said earlier this
month. "It said I was making three-way
calls, and I wasn't. There's no reason for
it. And it's frustrating because we spend a
lot of money to call our families."
The jail's phone service provider,
Global Tel Link, doesn't offer refunds to
the call recipients who are the ones
billed for dropped cellphone calls, un-
less a technical issue can be found within

Flying museum soars

into Punta Gorda
By PAUL FALLON
STAFF WRITER
The engines of the Mighty Eighth will soon be heard in
the skies above Punta Gorda when one of the bombers
that helped bring the Axis to its knees arrives in Southwest
Florida for the 34th annual Florida International Air Show.
The restored B-17 Flying Fortress bomber was scheduled
to land at Punta Gorda Airport on Wednesday from its home
outside of Houston. The flying museum will be available for
tours at the airport, and a limited number of individuals will
actually get to fly in the historic bomber.
The plane, dubbed the Texas Raiders in honor of Texas
veterans, came off the assembly line in June 1945, pilot Pat
Elliott said. It just barely missed seeing action during World
War II, he said.
The plane was on its way to Okinawa, and would have
participated in the invasion of Japan.
"It (Texas Raiders) was flying over Pennsylvania when the

J .. .


Charlotte State Bank & Trust in Punta Gorda on Saturday held a Kids Safety Day with interactive
games, educational videos, prizes, free helmets fit to size by the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office,
and safety instructions. In addition to the CCSO helping out with the day, members from the
Punta Gorda Police Department and the Punta Gorda Fire Deptarment, with Sparky the Fire Dog,
helped. So did Charlotte County Fire/EMS, Florida Forest Service with Smokey Bear, Port Charlotte
Firehouse Subs, Drug Free Charlotte County and the American Red Cross. Here, Kaison Weather-
head gets a free helmet from Deputy Joe Fiorini of the CCSO while his dad, Simon, looks on.

Report: Shoplifting investigation yields 11 drug charges


PORT CHARLOTTE
-A woman accused of
shoplifting from a local
store Tuesday afternoon
was facing just one count
of grant theft. That is, until
authorities looked in her
purse, and added 11 drug
charges.
Tiffany Lee Goulart, 30, of
the 1300 block ofYorkshire
Street, Port Charlotte, was
arrested after failing to ring
up 32 pieces of clothing,
some jewelry and a memo
pad worth $305 at the
self-checkout lane at the
Walmart on Kings Highway
in Port Charlotte, according
to a Charlotte County
Sheriff's report.
While investigating
Goulart for shoplifting,
authorities allegedly
found in her purse more
than 40 pills, representing
several different drugs,
including: cefuroxime,
escitalopram, Paxil, cyclo-
benzaprine, morphine,
oxycodone, lorazepam,
alprazolam, hydrocodone/
acetaminophen and
hydrocodone.
Goulart was charged
with six counts of pos-
session of a controlled
substance without a
prescription, four counts
of possession of a harmful
new legend drug without
a prescription, and one
count each of possession
of drug paraphernalia
and grand theft. She was
released from the Charlotte

after posting $41,500 bond.

Woman charged
with gas station
prostitution
NORTH PORT -A local
woman was arrested on
one count of misdemeanor
prostitution Tuesday
in connection with a
March 13 incident, in
which she allegedly stood
outside the RaceTrac gas
station and offered oral sex
in exchange for gas money,
according to a North Port
Police report.
Nadine Dolezalek, 25, of
the 6400 block of Kenwood
Drive, recently was fired
from a local fast-food
restaurant, and ran out
of gas around 12:30 p.m.
at the RaceTrac station,
located on the 18900 block

states.
She then reportedly
approached several

North Port OKs homeless intake portal


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER

NORTH PORT City
commissioners unani-
mously decided this week
to establish an emer-
gency homeless-family
intake "portal" at the
North Port Family Service
Center, a move that will
provide short-term aid to
families in crisis.
Plans call for dedi-
cating 962 square feet
of space to the effort,
although the total costs
and available resources
still are being sorted out.
The intake portal would


be a one- to two-day
solution for families with
no place to go, and would
give them access to ser-
vices to aid them in their
greatest time of need.
The intake portal
would have bedrooms,
bathrooms and a kitchen,
all renovated by Sarasota
County.
The portal is part of a
plan designed by home-
lessness expert Dr. Robert
Marbut, a consultant
based in Texas brought in
to help deal with home-
less issues plaguing all of
Sarasota County. Marbut's
50-plus-page report


released in November de-
tails 348 homeless families
in the county, including
637 homeless children.
Marbut said previously
that South County, partic-
ularly Englewood, suffers
from a significant number
of homeless families.
The North Port intake
portal primarily would
serve North Port, but
could be called on to aid
families from other South
County communities.
"It's a much more
coordinated system, once
it's fully in place, than
what we have today,"
Wayne Applebee, director


of homeless services for
Sarasota County, said at
Monday's city meeting.
Commissioners also
approved $114,000,
along with a $5,000
contingency, to construct
a second floor on the
Family Service Center,
located at 6919 Outreach
Way (off Pan American
Boulevard). It's unknown
if the intake portal will be
housed on the second or
first floor, once construc-
tion is complete.
Former Sarasota
County commissioner
John Thaxton, now
with the Gulf Coast


Community Foundation,
said the intake portal
would act like an "emer-
gency room" for families
in crisis, and also be
North Port's contribution
to helping to solve the
overall issues of home-
lessness in the county.
"We need our law
enforcement and social
services agencies to know
they (the families) will
be out of the elements
and protected," Thaxton
added.
North Port City
Manager Jonathan Lewis
praised Applebee's work,
while commissioners, for


the most part, thought
the intake portal would
be a great asset for those
who need it.
Commissioners were
concerned about the
portal's size, and whether
the facility would be able
to handle more than one
or two families at a time,
but Applebee said this
was one of many steps
to take for all of Sarasota
County, in trying to solve
the problem together.
"We all want to make
sure we're working in
unison, and the right
direction," he added.

Englewood residents want slower traffic on Oxford Drive


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

ENGLEWOOD -South
Oxford Drive isn't always
the quiet residential street
it should be, according to
some residents.
South Oxford, from East
Dearborn Street to State
Road 776, is posted as
having a 30-mph speed
limit on both sides of
the Sarasota-Charlotte
county line. That 1.5-mile
stretch of Oxford Drive
runs parallel to Pine Street,


and is unimpeded with a
traffic signal, like the one
at Pine Street and Medical
Boulevard, or any other
traffic-slowing device.
According to Heather
Taylor and other Oxford
Drive residents, a number
of motorists fail to drive
even close to the speed
limit.
"This is a residential
street and people are
ignoring that," Taylor said.
While some residents
estimated 20 percent
of the motorists do not

Heather Taylor has lived on South Oxford Drive since 1972. She
and other residents would like to see more motorists on the
neighborhood road obeying the 30-mph speed limit.


respect the speed limit,
nor do they respect the
fact that they are driving
down a neighborhood
street with children,
pedestrians and bicyclists,
Taylor, who has lived on
Oxford since 1972, thinks
the percentage is far
higher.
Taylor and other resi-
dents said both Sarasota
and Charlotte sheriffs'
deputies periodically do
monitor traffic on Oxford
Drive.
"At least, (the deputies)
are making an effort,"
Taylor said. She described
CCSO efforts as "wonder-
ful," but Taylor added she
finds it frustrating when
the deputies leave and
traffic tends to speed up.
Another Oxford Drive
resident, Anna Forrester,
said more motorists may
be picking up speed in
the evening hours. She
said she sometimes can
hear speeders over her
television in the evening,
and sometimes will brace
herself in anticipation of
an accident.
"It's hard with new cars


- and even for me to
drive 30 mph," Forrester
admitted, but she also
asked motorists driving
along South Oxford Drive
to drive slower.
Whether in Sarasota or
Charlotte county, residents
can call attention to
chronic speeding on their
residential streets.
"(Residents) can simply
email the general mailbox
- srqsher@scgov.net,"
Sarasota County Sheriff's
spokeswomanWendy Rose
said.
The SCSO forwards
complaints to its traffic
sergeant, who maintains a
log of specific grievances,
Rose said.
"They can call our
main number 941-639-
2101 -or 941-474-3233
(inWest County) to file a
report," Charlotte sheriff's
spokeswoman Debbie
Bowe said. "They can opt
to see a deputy or not.
They can fill out a traffic-
enforcement request
on our public website
at www.ccso.org/News/
traffichome.cfm."
Residents also can call
on the two county govern-
ments for assistance.
Both Rashad Hanbali,
Sarasota County traffic
engineering manager, and
VenkatVattikuti, Charlotte
County transportation
planner, said their respec-
tive counties respond to
speeding complaints on
residential streets. The
county will investigate and
determine what- if any


- additional traffic-calm-
ing or other action is
appropriate.
"In order for a traffic
concern to be addressed
fully, the three E's edu-
cation, enforcement and
engineering need to
addressed together and


need to work in balance,"
Hanbali said. "Once exces-
sive speeding is detected
on a roadway, the three
E's will be evaluated, and
a recommendation will
be processed by the case
investigator."

South Oxford Drive is posted with a 30-mph speed limit on both
sides of the Sarasota-Charlotte county line. Residents would
like to see that speed limit obeyed by more motorists. When it
comes to speeding, Sarasota and Charlotte residents can call on
their county and sheriffs' officials for help.

Sarasota County moves





forward with SCTI talks


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

SARASOTA COUNTY -
Sarasota County commis-
sioners agreed this week
to continue working with
the School Board toward
the future construction of
a North Port campus of
Sarasota County Technical
Institute, saying it was
a "win-win" project for
everyone.
At January's
Convocation of
Governments meeting,
SCTI Executive Director
Todd Bowden said a
center in North Port
would focus on the needs
of South County on a full-
time basis. Some potential
career-development
opportunities could in-
clude automotive service
technology, nursing, EMS
training, culinary arts,
business and construc-
tion technology, and
manufacturing.
Sarasota County School
District officials say
there are 200 North Port
students who spend three
hours a day at SCTI in
Sarasota, which necessi-
tates a 45-minute bus ride
each way. Bowden has
said a North Port campus
would cut that commute
time by at least two-thirds.


In January, SCTI began
holding some evening
classes on the North Port
High School campus on
West Price Boulevard.
The campus also
could have a library that
would be shared with
the public, giving the
community what Sarasota
County Libraries Director
Sarabeth Kalajian said is
a much-needed second
public library in North
Port.
County Public Works
Director Isaac Brownman
said Tuesday the project
would be a potential part-
nership with the School
Board. It would be a multi-
phase build-out, with the
county and the school
district each contributing
toward the design and
construction. Brownman
said the percentage of each
contribution would be
based on the school media
center/public library
portion of the project.
Brownman said the
School Board has desig-
nated impact-fee funds
for acquisition of the
property where an SCTI
campus would be built,
and would manage the
ongoing physical mainte-
nance of the campus. The
county will be responsible
for making sure the

At January's meeting, all

ities threw their support
behind the project.
County Commissioner
Christine Robinson said
it could be time to start
having conversations with
delegations from the cities
to let them know about
the ongoing status of the
project. County officials
say a North Port campus
would create jobs and
boost the area's economy.


"Getting a campus

wasn't sure where the

commission for further

NORTH PORT CONNECTOR FUNDING
North Port residents will have a future connection to Sarasota
County's Carlton Ranch Preserve, after county commissioners unani-
mously approved $200,000 in funding toward a bridge to be built at
the city's Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park.
Sarasota County Public Works Director Isaac Brownman said
Tuesday that the city already has committed $200,000 for design,
permitting and construction of the bridge. The connector will provide
access to the Carlton project from the south, in addition to other
access points that also are available to the west and the north. The
city had requested the funding from the county, which will come
from the county's environmentally sensitive lands protection program
funding. The county had to declare the project as "essential"to use the
funds a move that Commissioner Christine Robinson called "silly,"
because North Port's 58,000 residents need access to the park.
"This is a no-brainer situation, as far as I'm concerned'," Robinson said.
Commissioner Nora Patterson said when the commission decided
to take the funds public, they told the public the commission would
be committed to providing access to environmentally sensitive lands.
"To me, that's an essential promise,";' Patterson said.
No timetable was given as to when the connector could be built.

New parasailing regulations welcome


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR

ENGLEWOOD New
statewide regulations for
parasailing are long over-
due, one local business
owner says.
For the past three
days, captain Mark Jurist
hasn't been able to take
anyone sailing over
Englewood Beach due to
wind and weather con-
ditions. As the owner of
Barrier Island Adventure
Parasailing, 1271 Beach
Road, Englewood, he has
a "perfect safety record."
"We welcomed the
new regulations," said
Mark's wife, Tammy
Jurist, who co-owns the
family business with
him. "We have been
looking forward to the
changes to the regula-
tions because there are
unscrupulous captains
out there who destroy
the reputation of the
industry."

are U.S. Coast Guard-
credentialed master
captains, and are mem-

war was over," Elliott
said.
The bomber is one
of only nine B-17s
currently flying, and
it's the youngest. The
B-17 was called the
Flying Fortress because
of the large number of
.50-caliber machine
guns it carried and its
ability to sustain massive
amounts of damage and
stay in the air.
The government built
around 12,700 of the
planes.
The 8th Air Group,
renamed the 8th Air
Force in February
1944, sustained heavy
casualties during
the war. The Mighty
Eighth, as it came to be
known, sustained more
than 47,000 casualties
during the war. More
than 26,000 men died,
according to the Mighty
Eighth's website.

Miller Michau examined
the extent of injury to
Hope's eyes Tuesday.
Michau says the left eye
has a good prognosis, but
there is concern with the
right eye due to some loss
of the corneal structure.
"We're hoping to stop
it from progressing with
medical therapy," she
said. "If it gets any worse,
though, we should be able
to repair it with surgery."
Although Hope is in
stable condition, Gicking
said, "she isn't out of the
woods yet."
Both the Arcadia Police
Department and state Fire
Marshal's Office are inves-
tigating the burn incident.

of professional parasail-
ing experience using a
motorboat to tow gliders

they are wearing an open

The Jurists agree
with state legislators
who last week voted to
strengthen parasailing
regulations. The Senate
Committee on Regulated
Industries passed Senate
Bill 320 by a vote of
9-0. The vote was taken
after lawmakers heard
parasailing accident
victims give testimony.
Feb. 4, the House version
passed the Business &
Professional Regulation
Subcommittee.
New regulations
include: all operators
have a minimum
insurance requirement of
$1 million; and boats stop
operating when winds
are above 20 mph, gusts
are 15 mph or greater,
and/or there's a known
lightning storm 7 miles
away or closer. Captains
also are required to
install weather radar

teaching people about
the sacrifices veterans
from all branches
made for the freedoms
enjoyed in the United
States, Elliott said.
"The Nazis and the
Japanese had plans to
take over the world,"
he said. "And if it wasn't
for planes like this, and
our willingness to fight,
we could be speaking
English with a German
or Japanese accent
today."
The plane elicits a
number of responses
from individuals, espe-
cially veterans, Elliott
said. Some veterans be-
come teary-eyed when
looking at the plane and
some do not want to
have much to do with
it, he said. However, all
veterans show the plane
a good deal of respect.
"And everyone is in
awe of it," he said.
The plane is awe
inspiring for a reason,
he added. It stands
19 feet tall, and is 74 feet
long. It is powered by
four 1,200-horsepower
Wright-Cyclone radial
engines.


coming from a shed and
then observed a dog
on fire, rolling on the
ground attempting to put
the blaze out. They also
noticed the dog's owner,
LarryWallace, running
around the house with
water to put the fire out.
According to the report,
when police officers arrived
atWallace's residence, they
located the shed where the
incident had taken place.
The report says officers
found a large speaker
blocking the entrance to
the structure so the dog
couldn't escape. They also
found a five-gallon gas
container and reported the
shed smelled like gasoline.
Hope's rescuers say,
however, that the dog had
been doused in kerosene.
Neither the APD nor the
Fire Marshal's Office would
comment on whether
charges would be filed
against Wallace. Several
news outlets have reported


that delivers up-to-the-
minute forecasts.
According to the
Parasail Safety Council,
73 people were killed
and at least 1,600 were
injured between 1982
and 2012, during an
estimated 150 million
parasail rides.
Mark McCulloh, who
leads the Parasail Safety
Council, recently wrote
a letter to Florida legis-
lators. He wrote: "Most
operators would like to
see moderate regula-
tions, whereby everyone
operates under the same
standards, so long as
it doesn't impact their
income."
"Having the unique
role of being the inventor
of modern-day parasail-
ing equipment ... comes
the responsibility of
presenting the irrefutable
facts about the inherent
dangers of parasailing
and specific remedies
to overcome safety
obstacles," he wrote,
adding he fully supports
Florida's new regulations,
but still more could be
done. "In my opinion, as

Not only does it bristle
with 13.50-caliber
machine guns that were
used to fend off enemy
fighter planes, it also
holds period-specific ra-
dio equipment and the
historically significant
Norden bombsight, said
Nancy Kwiecien, the
marketing team leader
for the Commemorative
Air Force Gulf Coast
Wing.
Pilots will be offering
flights for those wishing
to see what it is like
to fly in the historic
plane. The cost of an
approximately half-
hour flight ranges from
$475 to $550, Kwiecien
said. Those interested in
booking a flight should
call 855-359-2217.
Reservations should
be made in advance
since the plane will
only be giving a limited
number of flights, she
said. Flights will be
offered from today until
Monday morning.
All of the revenue
generated by the flights
and the $10 tours is
used to help keep the
Commemorative Air
Force's planes in the air,
Kwiecien said.
"The flights are the
lifeblood of these old
warbirds," Elliott said.

Wallace is suffering
from mid- to late-stage

however, it is unknown
if his illness played any
role in the incident. The
Department of Children
and Families also has
an open investigation
regarding the matter.
Hope was brought to
the Hardee Animal Rescue
Team in Wauchula by
Arcadia resident Margot
Ayre, who happened upon
the scene and immediate-
ly drove the dog to HART.
HART president Leigh
Sockalosky said her team
brought Hope to the
Hardee Animal Clinic,
where she was initially
cared for by Dr. William
Lovett Jr. Once Lovett real-
ized the extent of the dog's
burns, she was transferred


to an emergency clinic in
Bonita Springs, and then
to BluePearl on Sunday.
Sockalosky said Hope's
bums are the worst HART

Senate Bill 320 does not
go far enough to prevent
parasailing fatalities."
McCulloh wrote that
he would like limitations
on parasail canopy size
based on passenger
support types (body
harness and/or gondola);
expanded penalties to
include criminal charges
against a captain who is
found willfully negligent
in a parasail fatality; and
rules that parasail cano-
pies, passenger support
systems and towlines
must have a mandatory
replacement time/date
stamp, based on both the
number of flights and
storage.
"These suggestions
have been challenged
by commercial opera-
tors, which are heavily
invested in maintaining
the status quo," he wrote.
"Unfortunately, without
meaningful reforms,
serious accidents and
fatalities will continue,
and eventually (will)
make present operations
uninsurable."

CALLS
FROM PAGE 1

GTL's internal network
With a majority of calls
coming from cellphones,
some are left paying more
than they bargained for to
talk to their loved ones.
Inmate Debra Angeles,
44, said she hasn't had any
recent problems with the
phone system but agreed
"it can get costly."
And while about 68 per-
cent of inmates' calls made
in 2013 were considered
"local," not everyone in the
area is afforded the luxury
of paying the local flat fee
of $2.25 per 15-minute call.
A 15-minute call that
stays within the state but
has to go through at least
one switch making it
an "intralata call" runs
$6.25. A representative
from GTL explained that
the type of call local vs.
intralata is determined
by the call receiver's carrier,
so it varies. GTL provided
to the Sun a list of about
250 exchanges that should
be considered local, but
the representative pointed
out inmates may not know
if a call is local until they
start making calls and hear
the rates.
Because of the way
rates are determined, the
cost for an inmate calling
someone inside Charlotte
County could be the same
as if they were calling
someone in the Panhandle.
Donna Baggott, 49, of
Port Charlotte learned this
when her son, Nicholas
Baggott, 27, was in the
county jail recently. Donna
was charged $6.25 per
15-minute call because

doctors have estimated
that if she survives,
continued treatment and
therapy could be a year or
longer. She adds Hope's
medical costs are approxi-
mately $1,300 or more per
day, and says donations to
HART have spiked in the
past week, with more than
$27,000 in donations so far.
"We're very thankful for
all of the public interest in
helping Hope," Sockalosky
said. "Hope's will to
survive along with her
positive medical assess-
ments made her a prime
candidate for treatment
and we are hopeful she
will recover and have a
much happier life."

she was outside the local
range, even though she
lives in the same county
as the jail. Furthermore,
Donna purchased prepaid
calling cards which
require a minimum
deposit of $25 over the
phone or online. GTL's fees
for using those deposit
methods are $8.75 and
$6.25, respectively.
"You can't get more
than three calls out of a
$25 card," said Donna,
who spoke with her son at
least twice a week
The Sarasota County
Jail which uses Securus
Technologies as its
provider has rates and
fees similar to Charlotte's,
and the receiver's carrier
determines whether a call
is local. Securus provides a
list of about 200 exchanges
that should be considered
local to the Sarasota
County Jail. The flat fee for
a local 20-minute call from
the jail is $2.50.
From the DeSoto County
Jail which utilizes Pay-
Tel Communications -
any call made within the
county is considered local,
and the rate is $2.50 plus
3 cents a minute. In addi-
tion, Pay-Tel's fee to make
deposits online or over the
phone is only $3.
"There's no real big
problems," DeSoto County
jail commander Capt.
Brian Harris said.
In Charlotte, the
Baggotts like Kinsolving
- said they experienced
issues with dropped calls.
"You're not allowed to
make three-way calls,"
said Donna. "If they hear
something that sounds like
you're clicking over to an-
other phone, it seems like
they'll disconnect it and


it will say 'no three-party
calls.' But there won't be a
three-party call."
She said some of her
and her son's calls were
cut short after less than a
minute.
"It's gut-wrenching to
the person on the outside,
financially and mentally,"
Donna said. "I can't
imagine what it does to
the ones inside. It builds
their anxiety level to the
point of almost going
crazy, really."
Charlotte County
assistant jail commander
Melissa Tumey said there
have only been "a handful"
of complaints recently, and
most are resolved without
incident.
"We always tell the
public to call us with any
issues they have," Turney
said. "This is typically
run up the chain if lower
staff cannot resolve the
problems."
But the jail is not respon-
sible for issues related to
payment or reimburse-
ments for dropped calls.
When the Sun called
GTL earlier this month,
a representative offered
an email address for
media inquiries. Senior
vice president of admin-
istration Teresa Ridgeway
responded, saying there
is a customer service
department to call if
experiencing dropped
calls. The complaints are
then reviewed.
The Sun wrote back,
inquiring if GTL had heard
anything about three-way
calling issues or if there
was a way to know ahead
of time what calls are
considered local, but GTL
did not respond.

100 and flying' high


By BILL JONES
SUN CORRESPONDENT

ErvYoas ate a healthy
breakfast Tuesday morn-
ing, drove to the Wellness
Center for a quick 6-mph
jog on the treadmill, then
went to the airport to
pilot a helicopter over
Punta Gorda as part of
his first-ever copter flight
training session.
It just happened to be
his 100th birthday.
This unique birthday
present was arranged
by Doug Kitsmiller of
Punta Gorda, a copter
trainer since 1966 with
28,000 hours in the air.
They work out together at
Bayfront Health in Punta
Gorda.
It was just a training
session, butYoas, him-
self a U.S. Navy flight
instructor in World War 11,
piloted the craft for a
portion of the 15-minute
flight, even though it was
the first time he'd ever
been in a helicopter.


"I turned the controls
over to him," Kitsmiller
said, "and he did fine.
He found it a little more
sensitive than flying an
airplane, but he handled
it well."
"It was so much
different," Yoas beamed.
But as a former pilot
with some 4,000 hours in
flight, he said, "it was like
old times."
Sprightly and grinning
broadly, clad in a shirt,
shorts and sneakers, he
literally bounded from
the copter across the
ramp to greet waiting
friends and relatives to
the strains of "Happy
birthday to you."
It's been a full life for
the centenarian from
Michigan, a man of
many pursuits. He ran
a family jewelry store in
Monroe, Mich. ("Where
the shocks are made," he
counseled a reporter.) He
taught kids right out of
high school to fly in the
Navy, and he once played


in the first violin section
of the Perrysburg, Ohio,
Symphony Orchestra.
He joined the Navy
in 1942 and was made
a glider pilot instructor.
But there was a prob-
lem. There were no
gliders. Transferred to
flight school, he taught
G-5 recruits, basically
teenagers, to fly. He'd
hold an instructor rating
for 24 years.
Retiring from the retail
jewelry business in 1974,
he moved to Florida
with his wife, Elizabeth.
"We knew where we
wanted to go," he said.
"As snowbirds, we liked
the west coast, and we
loved Punta Gorda."
His wife died 11 years
ago. Only her illness
prevented him, he said,
from auditioning to play
violin in his 80s with the
Southwest Symphony
Orchestra in Fort Myers.
"I was ready to go."
So what's the secret of
living to 100, a reporter

wanted to know? "It's
really no secret," he said.
"It's proper diet, exercise
and healthy living."
For exercise, he works
out three times a week on
the treadmill at Bayfront,
which he's done since
1999, and does all his


own yard work. Eating
healthy is easy, he said,
since he cooks all his
meals "from scratch. No
frozen dinners. I spend a
lot of time in the kitchen.
Sometimes there's not
enough time in the day."
There's no problem


getting around, either,
he said. "I've got a 1982
Oldsmobile Cutlass and
a 1988 Cadillac DeVille. I
drive them both and they
look like they're brand
new."
Somewhat like the guy
who drives them.

The Sun /Thursday, March 27, 2014


By GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
VENICE -Voters
showed their conservative
side by overwhelmingly
passing a limited budget
cap in Venice in Tuesday's
special election.
The current city charter
doesn't limit the amount
of budget increase a city
manager may request
from the City Council
without prior consent
from the council.
Venice Mayor John
Holic said an initial bud-
get cap was necessary.
"It's a safety valve for this
and future councils," Holic
said. "It's (for) when you
have banner years, with
all this expansion we are
having, the city manager is
forced to come to council
ahead of time to spend
over the 3 percent or the
rate of inflation. That way,
we have time to digest it,
instead of being presented
with a balanced budget
that is, say, eight percent
higher than the previ-
ous year, and have to deal
with it after it's all (present-
ed) in writing."
More than 74 percent
(2,565) voted for this
budget cap issue (Ballot
Question No. 6); 900
(25.97 percent) voted
against.
Voters also overwhelm-
ingly approved a new
process that will make it
easier for voter initiated
referendum and initia-
tives to get on the ballot.
Among other things,
new initiative rules will
give petitioners up to six
months to collect signa-
tures seeking to repeal an


ordinance. Currently a
90-day limit is in place.
Almost 80 percent of
voters (2,749) approved
Ballot Question No. 8;
694 (20.16 percent) voted
against.

Other results
SQuestion No. 1:
Partial terms of office
and term limits.
Appointed or partial
terms of office are cur-
rently counted toward
term limits. Should the
City Charter be amended
so that appointment or
elected partial terms to
fill city council vacancies
do not count for comput-
ing term limits?
(1,892) 53.90 per-
cent votedYes; (1,618)
46.10 percent voted No

Question No. 2:
Increase in council com-
pensation by initiative.
An increase or de-
crease of the mayor's
or council members'
compensation is cur-
rently not allowed to be
considered by petition
signed and voted upon
by registered voters of
the city. Should the City
Charter be amended to
allow an increase or de-
crease of compensation
to be by petition and vote
of registered voters?
(2,270) 64.38 per-
cent voted Yes; (1,256)
35.62 percent voted No

Question No. 3:
Meeting schedule.
The Venice City
Council is required to
meet at least once a
month. Should the City


Charter be amended to
allow for more flexibility
in scheduling meetings?
(2,042) 57.44 per-
cent votedYes; (1,513)
42.56 percent voted No

Question No. 5: City
manager provisions.
(2,093) 61.54 per-
cent voted Yes; (1,308)
38.46 percent voted No
The measure eliminates
language guaranteeing
the city manager a
severance package, other
than those perks already
incorporated in his or her
individual employment
contract.
It further places the
firing of the finance
director, police chief or
fire chief entirely in the
city manager's hands, al-
though council's consent
is still required for their
hiring.

Housekeeping
As anticipated, voters
approved a string of
housekeeping measures
by overwhelming (more
than 80 percent) margins:
Ballot Question No. 4:
generally specifying city
attorney duties as the
chief legal adviser.
Ballot Question No. 7:
Should the City Charter
be amended to change
"qualified electors" to
"registered voters" and
change "general law" to
"Florida state law?"
Ballot Question No. 9:
"Related laws" that are
obsolete.
About 3,450 voters
cast ballots in the city of
approximately 21,000.

Voters slam-dunk Sarasota


school tax referendum


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

SARASOTA COUNTY
- The Sarasota County
School District's 1-mill tax
referendum was soundly
renewed by voters
Tuesday for another four
years, with nearly 77 per-
cent giving the extension
the go-ahead.
According to the county
Supervisor of Elections
website, with all precincts
reporting, 76.89 percent,
or 35,094, voted in favor
of the renewal, with
23.11 percent, or 10,547,
voting against.
The school tax generates
approximately $40 million
each year for the district,
school officials say, and
is critical to continuing a
30-minute-longer school
day, keeping classes such
as chorus and orchestra,


and maintaining high
standards. It also pays
for nearly 500 teacher
and staff positions,
largely in the areas of art,
music, theater, physical
education, dance and
elementary science, along
with guidance counselors,
technical and front-office
support and school
security aides.
The website gave a total
voter turnout of 45,720, or
16.73 percent. Venice and
Longboat Key also had
items on the ballot.
Voters first approved
the school district tax in
2002, and it was extended
in 2006 and 2010. It now
will remain in effect
through June 2018.
Sarasota County School
Superintendent Lori
White was thrilled.
"It's just such an affirma-
tion that this community


cares about the school
district, and that voters are
willing to invest in it and
extend the benefit of those
dollars over the next four
years," she said. "I am just
so thankful."
Referendum dollars
come from a 1-mill tax
county homeowners
already pay, so the
renewal doesn't mean
taxes will increase. One
mill equates to $1 in
taxes for each $1,000
of a property's taxable
value between 30 and
39 cents a day, depending
on a home's value.
According to the SOE
website, 15,599 absentee
votes were cast in favor
of the referendum, with
5,418 against.
There are currently
273,693 registered voters
in Sarasota County.

I OUR VIEW

Mental health

care should be

among priorities

OUR POSITION: Mental
Health care does not appear to
be a priority in Tallahassee and
the consequences impact local
law enforcement and health care
facilities while creating hardships
for families and individuals
who are dealing with diagnosed
problems.
ne numbing statistic
says it all when it comes
to Florida's approach to
mental health care.
The state ranks 49th out of
50 states in per capital spending
on mental health care.
We could end this editorial
right here.
Consider this not only is
Florida next to last in spending,
but Florida spends one-fourth
the average of other states.
Perhaps Florida has one-fourth
the number of mentally ill as
other states but we doubt it.
The attitude for years in
Tallahassee has been to let the
chips fall where they will -
emphasized a decade ago when
the state closed about half its
mental hospitals in favor of
funding community teams that
set up shop in strip malls and
elsewhere to treat patients.
Funding for those teams was
then trimmed, forcing them
to take on larger territories.
Meanwhile, patients found it
difficult to get treatment. No one
was there to make sure they took
prescription medicines to con-
trol or alleviate their symptoms.
Too many of those people
ended up in homeless camps or
in local jails. It is a hard heart
that believes jail time for men-
tally ill is a better outcome than
professional mental health care
services.
In 2013, Florida's shameful
spending on mental health
equaled "$39 per person
per year," according to Bob
Sharpe, president and CEO
of the Florida Council for
Community Mental Health.
According to experts quoted
in a Miami Herald editorial,
the $39 figure was lower than
Florida's per capital funding
for mental health in the 1950s.
And, in the 20 years prior to
2012, funding was essentially
flat. With the state poised to go
to a managed care program,
mental health care providers
predict money ticketed for their
programs will shrink although
news this week tempered those
fears somewhat.
It is obvious lawmakers do
not believe in funneling money
into prevention and treatment
for mental disorders. It is not
an issue they believe will win or
lose votes. What should win or
lose votes is that the lawmakers
have created a huge cost burden
that shows up in our jails and
our health care facilities. We are
paying for this awful policy of
replacing professional mental
health treatment with jail time.
There are close to a million
adults and youths living in
Florida with serious mental
illnesses like anxiety disorder, bi-
polar disorder and schizophrenia
who need help. And that does
not include hundreds of thou-
sands with less serious illnesses
or substance abuse problems.
Lawmakers quoted in the Sun
on Sunday admitted mental
health care along with other
state programs has taken a
financial hit since the economic
slowdown began six years ago.
They said they are working to
find more money- admitting
that prevention saves the state
tons of money down the road in
treatment cost. We'd hope the
Legislature can answer this ques-
tion: is it appropriate to reduce
car registration fees and corporate
taxes while cutting another
$15.2 million from the mental
health care budget since 2012?
That Florida has chosen to


treat its mentally ill with jail time
instead of professional mental
health services is shameful.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Enjoy, support
Fire Arts Festival

Editor:
It's time once again for the
Englewood Fine Arts Festival
on Dearborn Street.
This is the best fine arts
festival in Florida (accord-
ing to the artists). It is the
33rd year of this event and is
one of several fundraisers of
the Rotary Club of Englewood,
which raises money for
community needs, like Meals
on Wheels, FISH, local food
banks, Shoeboxes for Seniors,
Mental Health Community
Centers and many other
local projects totaling more
than $45,000 in donations to
worthy programs.
The club's philanthropic
arm for children, the
Englewood Youth Foundation,
gets the gate receipts from
the art festival. The EYF
provides more than $40,000
in scholarships to Englewood
youth every year, in addition
to supporting organizations
that support youth, like the
YMCA, Big Brothers/Big
Sisters, Kid's Needs-Greater
Englewood and many more
for another $25,000-plus.
The Fine Arts Festival takes
several people working vary-
ing amounts over the course
of more than a year and
$12,000 in expenses for things
like permits, porta-potties,
advertising, tents, table and
chair rentals, etc. Most people
make a donation, for which
we are very grateful. Yet, I
find it appalling that there are
people who come to the show,
enjoy the wonderful displays
by top quality artists, wolf
down southern barbecue and
other tasty treats, but won't
give a $2 donation at the gate.
This event supports
Englewood, please support
the event.

U.S. can do little
about climate change
Editor:
The letter to the editor
blaming global warming on
terrorist activities and other
forms of violence deserves a
response.
The first and last para-
graph's begin with the word
"may" so they are one
person's or one agency's
opinion. Nothing in either


statement even pretends to
be fact. The middle paragraph
says "climate change poses
significant challenges for the
United States and the rest of
the world."
There is a faction of people
who believe climate change
is man-made, that it couldn't
possibly be the result of
naturally reoccurring phe-
nomena. These folks refuse to
see that the U.S. laws created
to address the perceived
problem have no influence on
other countries. They refuse
to talk about the impact of
volcanoes and fires and sand
storms on climate. How about
the fact that China's cities are
enveloped in smog so bad
that many wear masks.
Is this a report by bu-
reaucrats of the current
administration who believe in
big government? There is no
scientific data cited to support
the report. These are typical
scare tactics. When they could
not support the allegation of
"global warming" the words
were modified to "climate
change."
Instead of blaming poverty,
political instability, social ten-
sions as well as environmental
degradation on the weather,
let's place the blame where
it belongs, on a bloated and
self-perpetuating government,
weak leadership and crippling
debt.

Canada has not
been neutral

Editor:
I read with some interest
a letter to the editor on
March 12 where the writer
suggested that Canada has
historically maintained a
neutral international foreign
policy suggesting an isola-
tionist stance letting our "big
sister," the United States, do
the fighting for us. Granted
the military might of the
United States is much "big-
ger" than Canada's, though
the population of the U.S. is
10 times larger than Canada's,
and, granted, Canada has
not initiated many military
actions.
However, Canada has hardly
been neutral having entered
World War I and II much
sooner than its neighbor to
the south. The facts are that
the U.S. entered both conflicts
much later after overcoming
significant neutral/isolationist
sentiments in the USA in
both conflicts. Canada also
supported the U.S. in Korea

and has done likewise in
Afghanistan taking on the
toughest Taliban areas of the
country and being the last
country to leave next to the
United States.
It is also a fact that Canada
did not take a neutral
stance in Iran when the
U.S. Embassy staff needed to
get out of the country. Canada
has not avoided conflict when
it became clear conflict was
necessary, and given the size
of the Canadian population its
military performed exception-
ally according to U.S. General
staff on the ground in
Afghanistan. Neutral they are
not and never have been and
the facts speak for themselves.

Nuts with gu

Editor:
As a concealed wea
permit holder and we
carrier I am deeply of


(regulations)? That's easy, not
everyone's honest, some are
greedy, and others belong in
jail. We deregulated the banks,
and then we had a recession.
We deregulated the airlines
and then several went bank-
rupt. We're so busy trashing
our own and cutting benefits,
worried about the deficit
while we give billions to other
countries who don't even
like us. For the record, both
political parties are guilty and

Wage increases
will add costs

Editor:
Value Meal up 4 cents a
recent letter had pricing all
wrong, and using bad numbers
gets you bad numbers. First, an
increase of $2.50 on the min-
imum wage of $7.50 is a 33 per-
cent increase not 25 percent as
he stated. Over 85 percent of
McDonald's restaurants in the
USA are owned by individual
franchisees and their labor
costs are not in the McDonald's
annual report.
Labor as to total sales is
28 percent not 17 percent
as stated. A Big Mac Value
Meal is $6.19 not $1. Current
restaurant average wage
is $9.10 with $7.50 as the
minimum wage but increas-
ing the minimum wage to
$10 would mean a restaurant's
average wage would increase
to $11.60 because you need
to figure in compression on
those employees already earn-
ing $9. This increases your
average employee wage by
$1.60 bringing it to $11.60.
With that you will have an
increase in payroll taxes and


unemployment insurance due
to the 33 percent increase in
payroll wages. This would in-


Englewood crease the cost of aValue Meal
by at least 25 percent, so a Big
Mac Value Meal would now
ins, cost $7.74. Oh and how about
t Obamacare? The average
ts annual cost to a McDonald's
restaurant is about $80,000.
Now a Big Mac Value Meal
ipon would cost $8.25 or more.

Regulations: they
help us, hurt us

Editor:
Regulations: Either the
dirtiest word, or the favorite.
Both positions are right,
depending on the regulation.
Some regulations are neces-
sary, for example, those that
govern nursing homes. Others
really violate our rights. One
example is seat belts: the
regulation requiring cars to
have seat belts as standard
equipment makes sense. They
do prevent injuries and death.
The requirement that all
individuals wear them violates
our rights we are allowed to
be stupid.
It is not the government's
job to care for us as if we were
children. It is the govern-
ment's job to protect us from
others, including themselves.
It is also not anyone's job to
tell others how they must
live. For instance, I personally
don't approve of abortion
but it scares me that the
government tries to impose
its will (If they say you cannot,
why can't they say you must)?
Think about that one.

Kudos to band,
teens at Arts Center

Editor:
My husband and I attended
a great performance at the
North Port Performing Arts
Center recently, and were
pleasantly surprised by the
fantastic talent we were privi-
leged to see and hear there.
The North Port Concert
Band was outstanding, and
performances by 13-year-
old Geoffrey Gallante and
16-year-old Marcella Brown
were sensational. They both
gave us "goose-bumps."
No doubt about their future
careers as star performers. We
are ardent fans of Chris Botti,
and having seen him perform
at Van Wezel in Sarasota, this
makes us think Geoffrey will
be in the same genre as this
famous trumpeter. Chris's
comment regarding Geoffrey,
"as an incredible talent," says
it all.
Kudos to the North Port
Concert Band for their blend
of musical artistry. The fact
the musicians are "volunteers"
shows what a gift they bestow
on this community.
North Port should be very
proud of such a fantastic
group.

Affordable health care plans available until Monday


he clock is ticking
Monday is the
last day to enroll
in health care under the
Affordable Care Act. The
next enrollment period
begins Nov. 15, 2014.
Plans are available
through the Marketplace,
allowing apples-to-
apples comparison
of qualified health
plans; access to health
insurance information;
and the ability to buy
health insurance. You can
access the Marketplace
through www.healthcare.
gov or call 800-318-2596.


You can also enroll for
coverage at the Virginia
B. Andes Volunteer
Community Clinic
in Port Charlotte.
To schedule an
appointment, call
941-766-9570, extension


130 or email ypino@
volunteercare.org.
There are five plan
categories (Bronze,
Silver, Gold, Platinum
and Catastrophic) that
differ on how the costs of
care are shared between
the insured and the
insurance company, and
deductibles, copayments,
coinsurance and out-of-
pocket maximums.
All plans cover
screenings, immuni-
zations, doctor visits,
prescription drugs and
preventive care. Many
plans offer benefits like


vision, dental or medical
management programs,
and all plans cover treat-
ment for pre-existing
conditions.
Some plans allow you
to see almost any doctor
or health care facility;
others limit your choices
to a network of doctors
and facilities.
Lower premiums
are available based on
household size and
income. For example,
a family of four with
a household income
between $23,550 and
$94,200 can qualify


for lower premiums. A
family of four with an
income between $23,550
and $58,875 may qualify
for lower premiums AND
lower-out-of-pocket
costs. Some people think
it's cheaper to pay a
penalty than buy insur-
ance because they aren't
aware of the available tax
credits.
We give a big "thumbs-
down" to our Florida
legislature for thus far
refusing to expand
Medicaid eligibility caus-
ing a family of four with
an annual income below


$23,550 to be ineligible for
any Marketplace savings.
Going without insur-
ance is a huge gamble.
The real point of insur-
ance is to protect against
catastrophic medical
events, which few people
could pay for without
coverage. So, what are
you waiting for? Sign up
by Monday and you can
have affordable insur-
ance as early as May 1.

Legislature should abandon court-packing amendment


here are two con-
stitutional amend-
ments that have
made their way to the
November ballot. Both
were proposed by citizen
initiative and both enjoy
widespread voter popu-
larity.
So far, no legislative-
proposed constitutional
amendments are set to
appear on the ballot.
That's probably for the
best, as they didn't fare
well during the 2012
election. Only three
of their 11 proposed
amendments garnered
the 60 percent voter
threshold necessary for
passage.
One of the eight
failed amendments
distinguished itself as
the most dismal failure.
Amendment 5 relating
to state courts received a
paltry 37 percent of the
vote. The amendment
was an attempt to grant
the Florida Legislature
more power, authority
and oversight over the
judicial branch. Voters
sent a strong message
to the Legislature not
to meddle with the
judiciary, a separate but
equal branch of state
government.
Now less than two
years later, up pops
SJR 1188, a legislative
attempt to put another
judicial issue before the
voters. Technically, the
constitutional change
would require the
governor to prospectively
fill a vacancy in a judicial
office on the Florida
Supreme Court or a
district court of appeal.
The proponents claim
it is necessary to clear up
ambiguity in the current
system and avoid costly
litigation.
Opponents claim it is
a blatant attempt to pack
the court by an outgoing


lame-duck governor and
to deny the incoming
governor the ability to
make the appointments.
At the heart of the
issue is the age ceiling
for the justices, com-
bined with the timing of
their departures. Under
current law, justices are
required to retire at age
70 but can remain on the
bench until the end of
their six-year term.
Also under current law,
a sitting justice's term
does not expire until the
first Tuesday after the
first Monday in January
after the November
general election vote.
That also happens to be
the date a new gover-
nor-elect takes office and
the outgoing governor
departs.
If a governor is
re-elected, the issue is
moot. This proposal
makes a change from the
current process when
a governor is replaced
either by choosing not
to run or by losing at the
polls. In that case, the
constitutional change
would grant the outgoing
governor a long-lasting
and powerful parting gift.
This is not a new issue.
In 1998 former Gov. Jeb
Bush first argued it was
the incoming governor
that is responsible for the
judicial appointments.
He eventually resolved
the issue by agreeing to
a joint appointment with
outgoing Gov. Lawton
Chiles. Then in 2006,
Gov. Bush requested an


advisory opinion from
the Florida Supreme
Court when, on his way
out, he wanted to ap-
point the successor to a
District Court of Appeals
judge who was ineligible
for retention.
In its advisory opinion,
the Supreme Court held
that the definition for
when a vacancy occurs
with regard to merit
retention judges is clear
and unambiguous a
vacancy exists upon the
expiration of the term of
the judge or justice.
So why is this rearing
its head once again?
Could it be because three
of the seven Supreme
Court justices have
mandatory retirement
dates in January 2019?
One other retires in 2017.
Under this change,
the outgoing governor
would have incredible
power to shape the court
by selecting a majority
of the justices. Three
of the justices would
be appointed after the


new governor had been
elected and had taken
office.
Something just doesn't
seem right with that.
Unfortunately, the
battle is taking place
along party lines. It
shouldn't be a partisan
issue, particularly since
either party could take
the governor's race in
what is expected to be a
close race this year.
It really should come
down to what is better
policy.
Even if we were to
take the sponsor, state
Sen. Tom Lee (R), at his
word that his intention
is to provide clarity and
avoid legal disputes and
costly litigation, a critical
question arises. Isn't he
moving in the wrong
direction?
Why would we move
away from the 2006
Florida Supreme Court
advisory opinion?
The constitutional
amendment is unnec-
essary and needlessly


divisive. It sends the
distinct impression that
this is a partisan power
grab to stack the court.
It is my hope that Sen.
Lee will withdraw the
Senate Joint Resolution
from further consider-
ation. If it does make
it to the Senate floor, it
would take a three-fifths
majority or 24 votes to
pass. Surely there are
17 senators who will step


up and do the right thing
- vote it down.
If they don't, I'm sure
the voters will give them
a remedial lesson in
November.

Health overhaul extension

Administration allows more time to complete enrollment


By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
WASHINGTON -Millions of
Americans could get extra time to
enroll for taxpayer-subsidized cover-
age this year under President Barack
Obama's health care law. That would let
the administration boost sign-ups and
aid Democrats under attack over the
program's troubles.
The Health and Human Services
DepartmentWednesday posted two
documents that outline "special en-
rollment periods" for broad groups of
people trying to access the new online
health insurance markets.
Those who've started an application,
but weren't able to finish before the
March 31 open enrollment deadline,
would get a limited amount of time to
sign up for coverage that would take


effect May 1.
Additionally, people with 10 general
categories of "special" circumstances
would also get extra time to apply
- up to 60 days. Categories include
natural disasters, system errors related
to immigration status, computer error
messages due to technical difficulties,
family situations involving domestic
abuse, and other sorts of problems.
"We won't close the door on those
who tried to get covered and were not
able to do so through no fault of their
own," Julie Bataille, communications
director for the health care rollout, told
reporters.
She deflected repeated questions
on whether there is a hard deadline
beyond which the administration won't
take applications.

Smartphone app helps alcoholics stay sober


By LINDSEY TANNER
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
CHICAGO- A
smartphone app for
recovering alcoholics
that includes a panic
button and sounds an
alert when they get
too close to taverns
helped keep some on
the wagon, researchers
who developed the tool
found.
The sober app
studied joins a host


of others that serve as
electronic shoulder an-
gels, featuring a variety
of options for trying
to prevent alcoholics
and drug addicts from
relapsing.
Adults released from
in-patient alcoholism
treatment centers
who got free sober
smartphones reported
fewer drinking days
and more overall
abstinence than those
who got the usual


follow-up support.
The results were
based on patients'
self-reporting on
whether they resumed
drinking, a potential
limitation. Still,
addiction experts say
the immediacy of
smartphone-based
help could make them
a useful tool in fighting
relapse.

Floating objects seen in


Flight 370 search area


By TODD PITMAN
and ROB GRIFFITH
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS

KUALA LUMPUR,
Malaysia They are the
most tantalizing clues
yet: 122 objects spotted
by satellite, floating in the
turbulent Indian Ocean
where officials believe
the missing Malaysian
jetliner went down. But
bad weather, the passage
of time and the sheer re-
moteness of their location


kept answers out of the
searchers' grasp.
Nineteen days into the
mystery of Flight 370, the
discovery of the objects
that ranged in size from
3 feet to 75 feet, offered
"the most credible lead
that we have," a top
Malaysian official said
Wednesday.
With clouds briefly
thinning in a stretch of
ocean known for dangerous
weather, aircraft and ships
from six countries combed
the waters far southwest of


the Australian coast. Crews
saw only three objects, one
of them blue and two others
that appeared to be rope.
But search planes could
not relocate them or find
the 122 pieces seen by a
French satellite. Limited
by fuel and distance, they
turned back for the night.

Windy snowstorm whips



Northeast; whiteout on roads


CHATHAM, Mass.
(AP) An Atlantic storm
whipped the Northeast
corridor with powerful
wind gusts Wednesday
while creating blizzard
conditions in parts of
Massachusetts and
Maine. In West Virginia,
two people were killed in
a traffic pileup blamed on
poor visibility caused by
snow.
The storm dumped up
to 10 inches on Cape Cod,
Nantucket and Martha's
Vineyard before pummel-
ing eastern Maine with
wind-whipped snow and
gusts reaching 60 mph.
"We're having a good
ol' blizzard. There's a
lot of snow. It's hard to
tell how much because
it's blowing sideways
outside," said Suzannah
Gale, owner of the
Homeport Inn in Lubec,
Maine, which is known
for its candy-striped
lighthouse at the nation's
eastern tip.
Up and down the coast,
the wind caused havoc.
Nantucket, off the
coast of Massachusetts,
saw winds gusting to
80 mph. Off the Maine
coast, a weather buoy
recorded a 107 mph gust,

but weather forecasters
questioned the accuracy
of the reading. There were
scattered power outages
across the region.
The combination of
wind and snow created
whiteout conditions
that were blamed on a
pair of pileups involving
40 vehicles Wednesday
on Interstate 81 around
Falling Waters, WVa. Two
people were killed and
seven were injured, state


police said.
Just days after the
official end of one of
the snowiest winters
on record, the storm
began heading up the
Interstate 95 corridor on
Tuesday.
As the storm moved
north, it dropped about
6 inches of snow in
southern Delaware's
Sussex County and blan-
keted parts of southern
New Jersey, where


6 12 inches of snow was
reported in Cape May.
Eastern Maine was
expected to get 6 to 10
inches of snow.
In Boston, the pow-
erful wind sent smoke
billowing through the
Back Bay neighbor-
hood Wednesday as
firefighters battled a
large brownstone fire
that injured several
people and tied up
traffic.


Some mudslide victims may not be found


DARRINGTON, Wash.
(AP) Becky Bach
watches and waits,
hoping that search
crews find her brother
and three other rela-
tives who are missing
in Washington state's
deadly mudslide.
Doug Massingale waits
too, for word about his
4-month-old grand-
daughter. Searchers
were able to identify
carpet from the infant's
bedroom, but a log jam
stood in the way of a
more thorough effort
to find little Sanoah
Huestis, known as
"Snowy."
With little hope to
cling to, family mem-
bers of the missing are
beginning to confront a
grim reality: Their loved
ones might never be


found, remaining en-
tombed forever inside a
mountain of mud that is
believed to have claimed
more than 20 lives
"It just generates so
many questions if they
don't find them," Bach
said. "I've never known
anybody to die in a
natural disaster. Do they
issue death certificates?"
Search crews using
dogs, bulldozers and
their bare hands kept
slogging through
the mess of broken
wood and mud again
Wednesday, looking for
more bodies or anyone
who might still be alive
nearly five days after a
wall of fast-moving earth
destroyed a small rural
community. But author-
ities have acknowledged
they might have to leave


some victims buried.
Wednesday afternoon
Washington State
Patrol spokesman Bob
Calkins said additional
remains were found, but
authorities would wait
to release more specific
information Wednesday
evening.
Previously, authorities
said they believed they
had found 24 bodies
from the slide that
swept through a rural
area north of Seattle on
Saturday, though not all
had been removed from
the area.
Dozens of people
remain unaccounted for,
although that number is
expected to go down.
Trying to recover every

Congress on

WASHINGTON (AP) -
The House and Senate

to quickly resolve their
differences and send
the White House a bill
to sanction Russia and
aid Ukraine to show U.S.

Both houses of

to vote on their versions
of the bill on Thursday,
but it remained unclear

House Speaker John

"You never know. But

Florida overcomes GOP barriers to enroll uninsured


MIAMI (AP) -Florida's
Republican leaders have
fought the Affordable Care
Act at every turn, banning
navigators from county
health departments,
offering no state dollars to
boost outreach efforts to
3.5 million uninsured and
leading the fight to repeal
the law. Yet the state has
emerged as a tale of what
went right with President
Barack Obama's health
care overhaul.
More than 440,000
Florida residents had
been enrolled through the
federal marketplace by the
end of February, putting
Florida on pace to exceed
the federal government's
initial projections by the
time enrollment closes
March 31.
The numbers are im-
pressive for a state where
Republicans control
the governor's mansion


and both houses of the
Legislature. By compari-
son, Republican-leaning
Texas has enrolled 295,000
through the federal site,
even though its popula-
tion is about a third larger
than Florida's.
Florida's success is due
partly to infrastructure
created in the swing
state by Democratic-
affiliated groups during
the last three presidential
elections, along with
continued investment by
the Obama administration
and nonprofit advocacy
groups in the diverse state
that will likely be com-
petitive in November's
midterm election.
Groups helping custom-
ers enroll in ACA-related
health plans have used
many of the same people
who ran Obama's presi-
dential campaigns, giving
them five years of deeply

entrenched relationships
in communities, data to
pinpoint the uninsured
and veteran volunteers
to track them down. The
state narrowly went for
Obama in 2012.
The successes and
failures of the Affordable
Care Act also carry


more political weight
in a battleground state
such as Florida where
the new law will fuel
election campaigns
for both Republicans
and Democrats, said
Democratic strategist
ScrevenWatson.
"(The Republicans) are


going to use Obamacare
as a hammer over the
Democratic candidates
in November," he said,
adding that if Florida's
enrollment numbers were
dismal, it could have big
implications in 2016.
"When you're talking
presidential elections, if
you have Florida you win,"
he said.
Florida's Republican
leaders chose not to spend
any state money market-
ing the new health plans
to millions of uninsured,
so the work was sup-
ported by $20.5 million
in federal grants plus
manpower from the
nonprofit organization
Enroll America.
Florida residents have
also been reached by
federally funded TV,
radio and digital ads.
About $52 million has
been spent in the last


three month on the ads
in Florida and the other
28 states relying on the
federal marketplace,
said Julie Bataille,
spokeswoman for the
Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services. The
agency has repeatedly
declined to provide a
state-by-state breakdown
of how taxpayer dollars
are being spent on ads.
Elsewhere, enrollment
results have been mixed
in other states that were
closely contested in
the 2012 presidential
election and now rely
on the federal exchange.
North Carolina has
already beaten the initial
federal projections for
enrollment by the end
of March, while Virginia
and Wisconsin appear on
track to meet the projec-
tion. Ohio is falling short
of projections.

Future of high

TALLAHASSEE (AP) -
The future of the Florida
Supreme Court is spark-

over who will get to pick
new justices.
The Florida Senate on

approval to a proposed
constitutional amend-
ment that would make it
clear that whoever wins
the election this fall will
get to pick the next three
justices.
Sixty percent of voters
would have to approve
the amendment for it to
take effect.
Three justices will be
required to retire the
same day a new governor
takes office in 2019. They
will be required to step
down because they have
reached the mandatory
retirement age of 70.

privacy bill
TALLAHASSEE (AP)-
School districts will no
longer be able to collect
certain types of student

the Florida Senate.
The Florida Senate on
Wednesday passed a mea-
sure that came in the wake
of complaints about the
state's move to Common
Core State Standards. The
vote was 38-1.
The bill (SB 188) would
ban school districts from
being able to collect and
retain information on
the political or religious
affiliation of students and
their parents. It would
also ban the collection
of biometric information
including student finger-
prints, palm scans or iris
scans.
The state also calls for
creating a new student
identification system so
that school districts could
eventually stop using
Social Security numbers.
A similar bill is also

sponsored by Sen. Jeff
Brandes, a Republican

Researchers plan
$3M study of

OCALA (AP) -Two
University of Florida in-
stitutes and the St. Johns
River Water Management
District are starting a
three-year $3 million
study of the impact of
pollutants on Florida's
springs.
St. Johns district chief

and other pollutants in
the springs.
The study will focus on
Silver Springs in Ocala
and Wekiva Springs in

the findings likely will
apply to many other

that has dogged the health
care overhaul from its
early days. It also raised
concerns about the poten-
tial for another round of
technology problems like
the ones that paralyzed
healthcare.gov after its
Oct. 1 launch.
Several factors seemed
to be involved:
Concern about
turning away millions of
people belatedly trying
to enroll this week. A
recent Kaiser Family
Foundation poll found
that 6 in 10 uninsured
people were unaware of
the March 31 enrollment
deadline, and half said
they didn't plan to get cov-
erage. It can take several

lead author and director
of the Center for Health
Enhancement Systems
Studies at the University
of Wisconsin in Madison.

With the search in
motion, Malaysian
officials again sought to
assuage the angry relatives
of the flight's 153 Chinese

Minister Hishammuddin

Hishammuddin pointedly
said Chinese families
"must also understand

lost our loved ones," as did
"so many other nations."
The latest satellite

The case hinged in
part on the importance
of Abu Ghaith's role as a
spokesman for the ter-
ror group. Prosecutors
maintained it was an
important one.
"This man was not
Osama bin Laden's
puppet," said Jonathan

Millions of consum-

tangled up in the compli-
cated enrollment process.
The administration's own
numbers show that only
about half of the people
deemed eligible to enroll
through March 1 actually
went all the way through
to signing up. More than
4 million people either

BRUSSELS (AP)-
President Barack Obama

Rising utility costs linger as winter fades


NEWYORK
(Bloomberg) U.S.
consumers got a glimpse
of rising future utility
bills during the winter as
coal- and nuclear-plant
shutdowns boosted
reliance on natural gas.
Demand for gas, used to
heat half of U.S. house-
holds and generate 27 per-
cent of the nation's power,
reached records from New
York to Los Angeles in
January, sending regional
prices to all-time highs.
Costs surged as a polar
vortex and waves of arctic
air caused the coldest
weather in 32 years. Prices
may rise further next win-
ter as 79 coal-fired power
plants close because of


stricter environmental
rules, while Entergy's
Vermont Yankee nuclear
plant was the fifth to
announce a permanent
shutdown over the past
two years.
"For those willing to
write off nuclear and
coal, this winter should
raise a red flag," said
Stephen Schork, president
of Schork Group Inc.,
a consulting group in
Villanova, Pennsylvania.
"We are setting ourselves
up for a massive rally in
natural gas.'"
Households in the
lower 48 states spent
5 percent more on
electricity and 10 percent
more for gas on average


this past winter, the U.S.
Energy Information
Administration estimated
in a March 12 report.
Consolidated Edison,
which owns New York
City's utility, said the
typical residential electric
bill rose 22 percent to $118
in February from a year
earlier.
Natural gas prices
are rising even as U.S.
production reaches
records, thanks to drilling
technologies including
hydraulic fracturing, or
cracking, which make
it more economical to
tap shale deposits for
the fuel. Output at the
Marcellus field in the
Northeast will reach


almost 15 billion cubic
feet a day in April, up
from 1.49 billion five
years earlier, according
to the EIA.
Daily power sales
in New York averaged
$165.24 a megawatt- hour
from the end of December
to March 24, up 91
percent from a year ear-
lier, based on spot prices
compiled by Bloomberg.
In the mid-Atlantic states,
prices at the benchmark
Western hub managed
by PJM Interconnection
LLC almost tripled, while
costs in Texas doubled.
Prices this year are highest
in Boston at an average
$174.45, up 86 percent

Study: Baseball players keep some bone strength


(LA Times) -Young
men who exercise keep
some of the benefits to
their bones into old age,
even if they don't keep
at it, according to re-
searchers who compared
the throwing arms and
the nonthrowing arms
of professional baseball
players over time.
Bone mass, size and
strength increase with
physical activity in
youth, but it was unclear
whether those benefits
carried into later years.
The researchers looked
at the arms of 103 pro
baseball players major
and minor leagues and
at the arms of 94 "regu-
lar" men; they reported


their findings in this
week's Proceedings of
the National Academy of
Sciences.
Half of the bone size
and one-third of the
bone strength benefits
of throwing baseballs
as young people were
maintained lifelong, the
scientists said. "In players
who continued throwing
during aging, some corti-
cal bone mass and more
strength benefits of the
physical activity during
youth were maintained."
The scientists conclud-
ed that it's important
to encourage physical
activity at a young age for
bone health. The focus,
they said, should be on


optimizing bone size and
strength, rather than on
increasing mass. And it's
a good thing to remain
active as one ages.
"Although the benefits
in bone mass acquired
during youth may be lost,
some of the benefits in
bone size and strength
may persist throughout
life," wrote the scientists,
who are from Indiana
University, the University
of Melbourne and
the American Sports
Medicine Institute in
Birmingham, Ala.
Bone size was mea-
sured in cross-section; ac-
tivity deposits new bone
on the outer surface.

Syrian opposition fails to win Arab


BEIRUT (LA Times)-
Syria's main opposition
political group was
rebuffed Wednesday by
the Arab League, which
denied the group's request
to occupy Syria's seat in the
22-member body.
The organization recog-
nized the Syrian National
Coalition as the legal
representative of the Syrian
people and will allow it to
participate in meetings "on
an exceptional basis," Arab
League Secretary-General
Nabil Elaraby said on the
second day of a two-day
summit in Kuwait.
But the opposition coa-
lition, which has formed a
transitional government,
had hoped for more.
"Let me say quite frankly
that keeping Syria's seat


empty in your midst sends
a clear message to (Syrian
President Bashar) Assad
that he can kill and that
the seat will wait for him
to resolve his war," said
coalition President Ahmad
Jarba, addressing the
summit Tuesday.
Syria's embassies in Arab
capitals should also be
turned over to the coali-
tion, he said, as there is
no one else to cater to the
interests of Syrians.
This month, the U.S.
ordered the Syrian
Embassy in Washington
and two honorary consul-
ates to suspend operations
"in consideration of the
atrocities the Assad regime
has committed against the
Syrian people." There has
been no word on whether


the coalition would
assume responsibility for
the embassy.
The coalition has long
suffered from assertions
that it lacks legitimacy.
Though its members
regularly meet with world
leaders, most rebels and
activists inside Syria
dismiss the group by
saying the opposition
needs "revolutionaries in
the trenches, not in the
hotels."
Last year, the coalition
took the seat as the legiti-
mate government of Syria
at the Arab League summit
after the membership of
Assad's government was
suspended in late 2011.
But the position was later
withdrawn after Lebanon,
Iraq and Algeria objected.


primarily at the humerus,
the upper arm bone.
The professional base-
ball players were good
subjects for the study, the
researchers said, because
they had routinely thrown
lots of baseballs from a
young age. Additionally,
baseball has not changed
in 100 years, meaning
that players would do the
same activity over time,
they wrote.
One limit of the study
is that the players were
all men, they noted,
saying, "It is possible that
conclusions would differ
if the study were per-
formed in women" and
using a bone that is prone
to osteoporosis.


League seat

On Tuesday, Saudi
Arabian Crown Prince
Salman bin Abdulaziz
accused the world of
"betraying" the rebels by
not sending them weap-
ons. Saudi Arabia is one of
the main supporters of the
rebels and has continued
to arm the opposition,
though fighters on the
ground say it is not
enough.
Jarba urged Arab leaders
to pressure the interna-
tional community to fulfill
its pledges to provide
heavy weapons to the
rebels.
"If the West failed to
provide us with the needed
weapons, what prevents
our brothers from resolv-
ing the matter of our seat
amongst you?" he said.

El-Sissi, who held the

and snow across much of
the country have clouded
the outlook on the U.S.
economy by restraining
the housing rebound and
consumer spending. Eaton
Corp. is among companies
trying to determine if the
slowdown in sales is more
than just weather-related.
"Demand momentum
has slowed somewhat,"
said Ryan Wang, an econ-
omist at HSBC Securities
USA Inc. in New York. "The
bad weather and the win-
ter probably aggravated


after announcing a $2
billion acquisition of virtual
reality company Oculus late
Monday. It was Facebook's
second big acquisition in as
many months. Last month
the company announced
that it would pay $19 billion
for messaging startup
WhatsApp.
Investors may be ques-
tioning whether the returns
on those investments will
ultimately justify the big
outlays, said Lawrence
Creatura, a portfolio man-
ager at Federated Investors.
Another loser in the
technology sector was King
Digital Entertainment.
The online games
company, which makes
the popular "Candy Crush
Saga," slumped on its first
day of trading. The compa-
ny raised $499.5 million in
an initial public offering.
The company's stock fell
$3.50, or 15.6 percent, to
$19 on the day


the downturn somewhat."
Wang is among the most
accurate forecasters for
capital-goods orders.
Demand for all durable
goods items meant
to last at least three
years climbed a more-
than-forecast 2.2 percent,
reflecting the biggest gain
in automobile demand in
a year.
Forecasts for total
orders in the Bloomberg
survey ranged from an
increase of 3 percent to a
1.5 percent drop. January's
figure was revised to
show a 1.3 percent drop
from a previously report-
ed 1 percent decline.


ven if you get a low price on
a new car, you may still come
out on the wrong end of the
deal if you don't pay close attention
to other areas of the buying process.
Consumer Reports lists five critical
steps you can take to save money
across the board. Fortunately, a lot
of the work can be done from the
comfort of your own home by using
the Internet, a phone and email.
1. Choose your exact car. It's
important to identify which car you
want, down to the trim level and
options. Use Consumer Reports
Ratings to help narrow down your
choices. Every automaker lets you
configure a car on its website, and
most let you search their dealers'
inventory. It's also vital that you test
drive any models you're consid-
ering before you get deep into the
process; cars can feel very different
when driven back to back, and less
obvious things, such as seat com-
fort, visibility and dash controls, can
make a big difference.
2. Set up your financing in
advance. Once you know approxi-
mately how much your car will cost,
you should focus on your financing
options. Shop around for the lowest
interest rate. You can get a good idea
of current rates at bankrate.com.
Ask your lender for preapproval,
and get it to issue a bank check that
you later fill out at the dealership.
Getting approval in advance takes
a lot of stress out of the buying
process. And you can still choose
the dealer's financing if the terms
are better.
3. Get dealers to compete. That
is one of the most effective ways of
getting a good discount on a new
car. Call or email several dealers
in your area, or request a quote
through their websites. Tell them the
exact car you want and ask for their
lowest price. Also, let them know
that you are shopping around and
that you will buy from the dealer-
ship with the lowest price.
4. Get the most for your trade-
in. If you plan on trading in your
current car, give it some attention
before going to the dealership to


Consumer


Reports



close the deal. Find out how much
it's worth by going to Edmunds
(Edmunds.com), Kelley Blue
Book (kbb.com) or the National
Automobile Dealers Association
(nada.org), or by buying a
Consumer Reports Used Car Price
Report.
To maximize your car's value,
it's worth putting a little effort into
its curb appeal. Wash and wax the
exterior, and clean the interior. It
does pay to do major repairs. A
dealer can't sell a car with a chipped
windshield, so it will deduct about
$300 to get it fixed, a Seattle-area
dealer told Consumer Reports. They
will also take off $500 to $600 for
worn tires. So replace them if you
can do it for less.
5. Just say no to dealer extras. You
should have the price locked down
when you go to the dealership to
finalize the sale. But the staff will try
to sell you extras to pad the dealer's
bottom line.
Those can include undercoating,
fabric and paint sealants, and VIN
etching, in which the dealer etches
the vehicle identification number
(VIN) into the windows to help
prevent theft. Don't bite. All modern
cars are factory-treated for rust
protection, and additional under-
coating can do more harm than
good. You can get a can of fabric
sealant or paint protectant or wax at
an auto parts or other retail store for
a few dollars and apply it yourself.
And if you want VIN etching, you
can often have it done at an inde-
pendent shop or do it yourself for a
lower price.
Dealers will also try to sell you
a service contract or extended
warranty. But if you've picked a
reliable car, in many cases you'll
spend more for the warranty than
you'll save in repairs.

States use farm bill loophole


to stem food stamp cuts


WASHINGTON
(Washington Post) -
Governors in several states
are using a loophole in the
farm bill to restore food aid
for thousands of low-in-
come families, potentially
wiping out billions of
dollars in savings Congress
agreed to last month.
The action has led to a
spat between the mostly
Democratic governors and
Republicans in Congress,
who say the changes
amount to an end-around
of the bipartisan agree-
ment that took House and
Senate negotiators years to
piece together.
The loophole concerns a
provision, known as "Heat
and Eat," that allows people
to get added food stamp
benefits if they also qualify
for a program that helps pay
heating costs for the poor.
To qualify, people
previously needed to get
as little as $1 in heating
aid. Several states provided
that amount so residents
could get more food stamp
benefits. Congress sought
to curb the practice and
save $8.5 billion by
raising the minimum
requirement to $20.
Governors in eight states
have responded by simply
giving people another $19
to qualify for the extra food
stamp benefits.
House Speaker John
Boehner, R-Ohio, earlier
this month threatened
legislation to stop what he
called "this cheating and
this fraud."

"Governors who choose
to undermine the bipar-
tisan reforms in the farm
bill are putting those who
depend on the home
heating program at risk,
and taking money out of
every American taxpayer's
pocket," said Michael Steel,
a Boehner spokesman.
The governors dis-
missed those complaints
and said what they're
doing is perfectly accept-
able under the law.
"Clearly, Congress
intended to grant states
the authority to provide
this vital benefit which is a
lifeline to some of our most
vulnerable constituents,"
Connecticut Democratic
Gov. Dannel Malloy wrote in
an angry letter to Boehner.
"We're following the
law that Congress wrote,"
Montana Democratic Gov.
Steve Bullock said in an
interview. "It took them
six years of negotiating for
them to pass a five-year
farm bill, and to expect us to
do anything but follow the
law they passed is absurd."
Bullock said that his
action means 2,000 house-
holds with a combined
income of $10,000 year or
less will get additional food
aid. The extra aid would
mostly go toward helping
seniors and the disabled
who "are making choices
every day to keep their
family fed," he said.
"The pushback is polit-
ical games," Bullock said,
"rather than dealing with
the folks on the ground."
The way the farm bill
is playing out is the latest
example of how federal
laws work differently de-
pending on where people
live and what party their
leaders belong to.
Of the 16 states and
the District of Columbia
that operate the heat
and eat program,
Montana, Connecticut,
Massachusetts, New York,
Oregon, Pennsylvania,


Rhode Island and
Vermont have already
moved to expand heating
aid to preserve food
stamps for low-income
residents. Tom Corbett of
Pennsylvania is the only
Republican of the bunch.
Washington Democratic
Gov. Jay Inslee will meet
with advisors later this
month to determine
whether his state can adjust
payments, while leaders
in California, Maine,
Michigan, New Jersey and
Wisconsin are also consid-
ering making the change.
Without the change, tens
of thousands of house-
holds stand to lose about
$29 per month, for a family
of three, or $36 per month
for a family of four.
In most cases, making the
higher heating payments
won't cost states any money.
That's because the money
comes in the form of federal
block grants and most states
end up with extra money
from those funds at the end
of each year.
The food stamp program
was one of the major
sticking points of the
$956.4 billion farm bill
that passed in February.
Republicans had initially
sought to trim tens of
billions in benefits from
a program that has
increased sharply in recent
years, while Democrats
resisted any cuts.
After considerable nego-
tiations, the Senate version
of the farm bill sought to
save about $4 billion over
a decade through the heat
and eat program by raising
the threshold for qualifi-
cation from $1 to $10. The
House version originally
sought to slash $40 billion
in cuts. Ultimately, the two
sides settled on $8.5 billion
in food stamp cuts.
If all of the states that
operate the heat and eat
program take advantage of

* MEN'S BASKETBALL: South Florida


Bulls ditch deal


due to coach's


lack of degree


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TAMPA -Steve
Masiello's promising
coaching career is in
limbo after his deal with
South Florida fell apart
because he doesn't have a
college diploma.
Manhattan College said
Wednesday that it had
placed him on leave while
Masiello is "reviewing his
degree status."
South Florida con-
firmed earlier Wednesday
that the school had an
agreement in principle to
lure Masiello away from
Manhattan, but that the
contract was contingent
on "a verification of
credentials."


USF requires its
basketball coach to have
at least a bachelor's
degree. The 39-year-old
Masiello did not graduate
after attending Kentucky,
where he played for Rick
Pitino and Tubby Smith
from 1996-2000.
"Through the verifi-
cation process it was
determined the candi-
date's credentials could
not be substantiated and
therefore he did not meet
the requirements for the
position," the school said
in a brief statement. "The
national search continues
and USF looks forward to
introducing a new coach

get 2nd


chance
By ROB SHORE
SPORTS WRITER
SARASOTA -The
Charlotte High School
baseball team was Jeff
Corsaletti's for the day,
and he was just glad it got
a second chance to get
onto the field.
Charlotte made the
most of that second
chance at the Sarasota
Classic on Wednesday
in a 3-1 victory over
Palmetto. Sophomore
Matt Ranson pitched five-
plus innings, allowing one
run and one hit.
"In the big picture,
Matt Ranson came in as a
sophomore and filled the
strike zone up," Corsaletti
said. "He did a heck of
a job for us. That was
definitely the game right
there for us."
Joe DelValle paced the
Charlotte offense, going
3 for 3.
Corsaletti, an assistant
coach for the Tarpons,
filled in for Dan Flaherty,
whose wife had a baby
earlier on Wednesday.
Charlotte suffered a
mistake-filled 6-5 loss
to Miami-Palmetto in its
first game Wednesday.
That just made
Corsaletti eager to get
back out there.
"The second game, we
get a 'W' and we get out
of here with a split," he
said. "There's not much
more you can ask for."
DelValle was one of the
Tarpons who had to quick-
ly forget the first game.
"It's all about whatever
happened last game,
you've got to refocus and
when you go up to the
plate, have an approach,"
DelValle said. "Go from
there, man."

semifinal Thursday night
to extend the longest
winning streak in school
history to a 29th game.
Another win puts the
NCAA tournament's over-
all top seed into a fourth
straight regional final.
"Every game you get a
chance to win, it becomes
more difficult," Florida
coach Billy Donovan
said. "It becomes more
challenging, it becomes
harder."
The Gators (34-2) have
won with one of the
nation's stingiest defens-
es all season, holding
opponents to an average
of 57.5 points a game that
puts them third nationally.


Then came the press.
The Seminoles have
struggled with turnovers
throughout the year. That
problem was only magni-
fied when teams opted to
utilize a full-court press.
The Seminoles knew
Louisiana Tech would
bring the press sooner or
later, but they were not
ready for the onslaught of
energy that came with it.
FSU turned the ball
over on three of four
possessions, leading
directly to six points for
Louisiana Tech (29-8) as
the Bulldogs took a 43-39
lead three minutes into
the second period.
White did his best to
carry FSU during the
stretch, scoring five points
as the Seminoles closed
the gap and trailed 45-44.
White prone to picking
up unnecessary fouls for
a majority of the season -
picked up his fourth foul
with 15:57 remaining and
did not return until the
4:56 mark.
The Seminoles' offense
became stagnant with
White sitting on the
bench.
FSU did not score for
nearly minutes until
Aaron Thomas broke the
scoring drought with a
two-handed dunk of an
inbounds pass to make
the margin 51-46.
Thomas ignited the

ERA over his 42/3 innings.
But he gave up all five of
his runs over his first two
outings, and his last three
appearances have been
scoreless.
Wednesday night was
the second time Balfour
has pitched in a night
game this spring, some-
thing he said is a little
more comfortable for
him. It feels more like a
regular season routine,
he said, and it's nice to be
able to stay up late and
get his body used to that.
"I got fired up a little
bit tonight. It's just one of
those things where, that's
me. That's my game. If I
want to take it personal,
I'll take it personal. But I
could care less either way.
That's just me trying to
get fired up and com-
pete," Balfour said. "I'm
locked in, I'm getting into
my game, I'm trying to get
prepared and ready and
focused, and that's just
the way I go about it."
Balfour's velocity hasn't
been where it usually is
during the regular season,
but he said that's typical
for him during this time
of the year. He said he
usually throws around 90-
92 during the spring, but
he's had seasons where
he's finished the year
throwing up to 97 mph.
"Obviously you want
to be throwing a little bit
harder, maybe, but I've
always been around that,
and it always builds up.
So I know it's coming. But
it was coming out of the
hand pretty good, even
at where it's at right now.
It's live, and that's a good
sign."
Maddon said he liked
how Balfour looked
against the Orioles,
especially with opening
day just four days away.
"I saw a little more de-
monstrative strut around
the mound in between
batters," Maddon said. "I
thought that was a good
thing."
There could have been
a little extra motivation
for Balfour on Wednesday,
as he was facing the same
Orioles team he signed a
two-year, $15 million deal
with this offseason before
ending up with the Rays.
The Orioles backed out of
the original deal because
of concerns over Balfour's
shoulder, something he
has said isn't an issue.
"That stuff's for my
agent to take care of, what-
ever's going on behind
the scenes there," Balfour
said. "He can take care of
all that stuff. I'm focused
on winning. It's just a little
more fuel for me, so that's
a good thing."
Balfour will pitch
next on Friday against
the Detroit Tigers in
Lakeland.
"The arm builds up as
it goes along. It is early,"
Balfour said. "The stuff's
there and everything is
good, but it gets stronger,
and the good thing is
everything gets better and
better and better, I think,
for me, personally. And I
think if you talk to a lot of
guys they'd say the same
thing."

Tampa Bay's David Price delivers to Baltimore during Wednesday's game at Charlott


Rayi


Price make;

ByJOSHVITALE
SPORTS WRITER
PORT CHARLOTTE- A
day after informing him
he wouldn't make the
opening-day roster, the
Tampa Bay Rays officially
released reliever Mark
Lowe.
Lowe packed up his
locker and said good-
bye to teammates at
Charlotte Sports Park on
Wednesday. He said he's
been talking to a couple
of teams, and he's hoping
he can find an opportuni-
ty with a big league club.
If he can't find a job
elsewhere, Lowe said he
would consider returning
to the Rays and accepting
an assignment to Triple-A
Durham.
"I have a lot of respect
for this organization, and
the reasons they brought
me in here and the way
that treated me," Lowe
said. "It's a class act."
The 30-year-old right-
hander said he "never
had a spring go this well."
He finished his time with
the Rays 1-0 with an 0.87
ERA, striking out 12 bat-
ters over 10 1/3 innings.
"I'd love to have him
back. I can say that quick-
ly. He is good," Maddon
said. "We've been seeking
him for a while and we
finally got our hands
on him, but right now,
there's no room at the
inn. But we'd love to keep
him because we know
that things are going to
change."
Lowe's opt-out wasn't
until March 28, but
Maddon said they
released him Wednesday
because "we've got
to give these guys a
chance to make plans."
The Rays broke camp
in Port Charlotte after
Wednesday's game.

"I knew that it was

that when it does happen,
I'm not caught off guard.
And when something
really good happens,
you're surprised. That was

doesn't mean he was thrilled with the
results.

MLB ready to open new




reDlav control room


By RONALD BLUM
ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEWYORK-After
deciding close calls on
the field since 1876,
baseball opens a high-
tech control room this
weekend where the
fates of batters, pitchers,
runners and fielders will
be decided by umpires up
to 2,600 miles away in the
building where the Oreo
cookie was invested.
Starting with the Los
Angeles Dodgers' game
at the San Diego Padres
on Sunday night, the
U.S. opener of the 2014
season, players, managers
and fans will turn their
attention to the ROC -
the Replay Operations
Center.
In a dimly lit room of
just under 1,000 square
feet in the Chelsea
Market in Manhattan's
Meatpacking District,
umpires and technicians
will make the decisions
that could decide games
and championships.
More than $10 million
has been spent wiring the
30 big league ballparks
with Fiberlink cable that
will transmit the images
from at least 12 cameras

MNTFRf1(i(


at every site, and Major
League Baseball says it
will take just 400 milli-
seconds for each image
to arrive at the command
center.
All in an effort to pre-
vent the type of botched
calls that cost Detroit's
Armando Galarraga a
perfect game in 2010.
"I'm happy for the
managers," said Joe Torre,
an MLB executive vice
president overseeing
the new system. "Maybe
it will keep them from
having one or two more
sleepless nights if they
are able to grab one and
overturn it."
Inside the sliding glass
doors at the offices of
Major League Baseball
Advance Media, the room
has its own power supply
in case of a blackout
- with batteries as a
second auxiliary and
a stand-alone heating,
ventilation and air
conditioning system that
keeps the temperature at
72 degrees. Cell phones
don't have reception.
There are dozens of
televisions, more than
enough to make it
resemble NASA's Mission
Control. Outside the

Center in New York.


room, next to a modernist
black sofa, is a 55-inch
NEC screen, with another
just inside the entrance.
Walk in, and there's 65-
inch Pentus TV your left.
On each side are three
stations, each to be
staffed with a technician
on the left and a major
league umpire on the
right. Three more "float-
er" stations stretch across
the back well.
There are three stations
on each side, each with
four 46-inch screens -
three Planars for each
pod, with a higher-quality
Sony directly in front of
each umpire's seat. The
umps will wear headsets


and can push a button to
speak with their col-
leagues at any stadium.
Fifteen Asus computer
monitors are scattered
about, four on a wavy
table in the center where
supervisors will monitor
the review umpires and
up to 15 simultaneous
games.
The nine circular over-
head lights are kept low,
the walls are gray and the
carpeting is dark all so
that the televised images
will stand out more for
the umpires. There is a
sink and a microwave -
the food court on the first
floor is filled with dozens
of options.

Minnesota
In Fort Myers, Twins first baseman
Joe Mauer's error in the eighth
inning led to two runs that lifted the
Pittsburgh Pirates to a 2-1 victory over
Minnesota on Wednesday.
Mauer, who has three more spring
training games to complete his
conversion from a three-time Gold
Glove-winning catcher to a full-time
first baseman, bobbled a ball hit by
Travis Snider with two outs and the
bases loaded.
Oswaldo Arcia hit a solo home run,
his second of spring training, for the
Twins off Pirates left-hander Tony
Watson.
Ricky Nolasco, Minnesota's opening
day starter, struck out three in four
scoreless innings to finish his first
spring training with the team with a
5.50 ERA.
"He pitched great,"Twins manager
Ron Gardenhire said. "He threw the
ball very, very well. He's feeling really
confident, and I'm really confident. He
took himself out basically and said he
felt good."

*COLLEGE ATHLETICS



Agency: College athletes can unionize


Under decision,
full scholarship
players qualify
as employees
By MICHAEL TARM
ASSOCIATED PRESS
CHICAGO In a
stunning ruling that
could revolutionize
college sports, a federal
agency said Wednesday
that football players at
Northwestern University
can create the nation's
first union of college
athletes.
The decision by a
regional director of the
National Labor Relations
Board answered the


question at the very
heart of the debate of
the unionization bid:
The football players who
receive full scholarships
to the Big Ten school, the
agency found, do qual-
ify as employees under
federal law and therefore
can legally unionize.
"Based on the entire
record in this case, I find
that the Employer's foot-
ball players who receive
scholarships fall squarely
within (the) broad
definition of 'employee,"
Peter Sung Ohr, the NLRB
regional director, said in
his 24-page decision.
An employee is regard-
ed by law as someone
who, among other things,
receives compensation


for a service and is under
the strict, direct control of
managers. In the case of
the Northwestern players,
coaches are the managers
and scholarships are a
form of compensation,
Ohr concluded.
The Evanston, Ill.-
based university argued
that college athletes, as
students, don't fit in the
same category as factory
workers, truck drivers and
other unionized work-
ers. Immediately after
the ruling, the school
announced it plans to
appeal to labor authori-
ties in Washington, D.C.
Those advocating for
letting the players union-
ize argued the university
ultimately treats football


as more important than
academics for its schol-
arship players. Despite
Northwestern's denials,
Ohr sided with the
players on that issue.
"The record makes
clear that the employer's
scholarship players are
identified and recruited
in the first instance
because of their football
prowess and not be-
cause of their academic
achievement in high
school," Ohr wrote. He
also noted that among
the evidence presented
by Northwestern, "no ex-
amples were provided of
scholarship players being
permitted to miss entire
practices and/or games to
attend their studies."


Alan Cubbage,
Northwestern's vice
president for univer-
sity relations, said in a
statement that while
the school respects "the
NLRB process and the re-
gional director's opinion,
we disagree with it."
The next step in the pro-
cess of unionization would
be for scholarship players
to hold a vote on whether
or not to formally autho-
rize the College Athletes
Players Association, or
CAPA, to represent it "for
collective bargaining
purposes," according to
the NLRB decision.
The specific goals of
CAPA include guarantee-
ing coverage of sports-re-
lated medical expenses


for current and former
players, ensuring better
procedures to reduce head
injuries and potentially
letting players pursue
commercial sponsorships.
But critics have ar-
gued that giving college
athletes employee status
and allowing them to
unionize could hurt col-
lege sports in numerous
ways, including by raising
the prospects of strikes
by disgruntled players
or lockouts by athletic
departments.
For now, the push is
to unionize athletes at
private schools, such as
Northwestern, because
the federal labor agency
does not have jurisdiction
over public universities.


* NFL NOTEBOOK


Playoffs could


expand in 2014


Chicago signs

pass rusher

Jared Allen
FROM WIRE REPORTS
ORLANDO -There is a
good chance the NFL will
expand the playoff field
from 12 to 14 teams, and
the change could come
as early as the upcoming
season.
NFL Commissioner
Roger Goodell, speaking
Wednesday at the con-
clusion of the league's
annual meetings, said
there was a "full discus-
sion" on the topic among
team owners and execu-
tives this week.
"I think there's a tremen-
dous amount of interest in
this, possibly even to the
point of support, but there
are also things we still
want to make sure we do it
right," Goodell said. "We've
been very incremental
in trying to do this, but
we believe competitively
it could make even our
races toward the end of
our season even more
exciting with more teams
vying for playoff positions,
which is great for our fans.
We still want to do some
additional work, including
talking with the players
association."
The NFL and the NFL
Players Association will
meet April 8, and Goodell
said he anticipates playoff
expansion being among
the topics of discussion.
As for how soon a
change could be imple-
mented, he didn't rule out
it happening for the 2014
season.
"It's not out of the ques-
tion," he said, "but we
didn't make that decision
at all. We have more work
to do. I wouldn't rule it
out, but I wouldn't say
that's the direction we're
headed right now."

ing the seventh, Charlotte
(9-7) started to piece
together a tying rally.
Joey Howes was hit by a
pitch and Nick Newman
doubled down the left
field line, putting the two
tying runs on second and


Bucs sign louis
Murphy
TAMPA -TheTampa Bay
Buccaneers signed free agent
receiver Louis Murphy.
Murphy spent for the first
three years of his career with
the Oakland Raiders after being
selected in the fourth round of the
2009 draft out of Florida. He was
traded to Carolina in 2012 and
played for the NewYork Giants
last season.
In 71 career games, including
24 starts, Murphy has 121 recep-
tions for 1,744 yards and eight
touchdowns. He's also rushed 14
times for 146 yards and one TD.
The Bucs announced the
signing Wednesday.

their struggling defense. How does
adding Jared Allen sound?
The Bears agreed to a four-year
contract with the five-time Pro
Bowl defensive end, replacing one
accomplished pass rusher with another
as they rebuild a defense that ranked
among the league's worst last season.
A person with knowledge of the
agreement told The Associated Press
that Allen will get $15.5 million guar-
anteed on a deal that could be worth
as much as $32 million. Allen's deal
can be voided down to three years
and $24 million, but the first two
years of his salary and a roster bonus
next March are fully guaranteed.
The 31-year-old Allen spentthe
previous six years with the NFC North
rival Minnesota Vikings. He will take
over for Julius Peppers, who signed with
Green Bay as a free agent after being
released by the Bears. Chicago's defense
ranked 30th in the NFL last season and
was 32nd and last against the run.

Doctors say no imme-
diate surgery for Jim
Kelly: Doctors treating Hall of Fame
quarterbackJim Kelly said he will
not immediately undergo surgery for
a recurrence of cancer. Instead, the
longtime Buffalo Bills star will likely
first be treated with chemotherapy and
radiation, according to a statement from
Lenox Hill Hospital in NewYork City.

Saints re-sign McCown:
New Orleans Saints general manager
Mickey Loomis said the club agreed to
the terms of a one-year contract with
quarterback Luke McCown, who was
Drew Brees' backup last season, as well
as the holder on field goals. McCown
is entering his 11th NFL season out of
Louisiana Tech.

Brandon Murphy plated

Charlotte had other

Kieran Foreman to start a

The results were mixed

visitors. But the boys lost
to Ida Baker 7-0 despite
three matches going three

STAFF REPORT
PUNTAGORDA -The
Charlotte High School
boys tennis team took
a 6-1 victory over North
Fort Myers on Wednesday
despite playing without
its Nos. 2 and 3 singles
players.
Tarpons freshmen
Jonathan Walker and
AdamVanderloop teamed
for a doubles victory in
their first varsity action
as Charlotte improved
to 7-1. North Fort Myers,
which was missing its
regular Nos. 3, 4 and 5
singles players, got its
lone win at No. 1 dou-
bles against Charlotte
freshmen Chris Cavic and
Chris Jen, who were also
playing their first varsity
match.
"We've been going
through some injuries
the last couple of weeks,"
Charlotte coach Tony
Balut said. "Just today our
2, 3 and 6 players were
out so hopefully we can
get everybody healthy

threw out Kevin Barbato
at home no error, but it
prevented an inning-end-

Panthers later scored the
eventual winning run.
Likewise, shortstop
Colton Dunson was late
with a double-pump on a
throw in the first inning,
and Miami-Palmetto's
Carter Nash beat it for
an infield single. Nash
scored a batter later when
Keaton Zargham singled
to center.
"We gave it away,"
Corsaletti said. "We didn't


the No. 1 doubles match
8-4 over Leah Meredith
and Emily Hauff.
Rioux raised her singles
record to 5-3 with a 6-1,
6-4 victory over Meredith,
and Bifaretti (4-5) took
a 6-3, 6-4 victory over
Hauff.
"They both did a great
job," Port Charlotte girls
coach Tom Tirb said. "It's
tough to win the top two
singles matches and also
the No. 1 doubles match,
but they did."
The Pirate girls have
played a tough schedule
this season, but seem to
be getting into top form
with the district tourna-
ment coming up.
On the boys side, Ida
Baker's victory was hard-
fought. Jordan Diggs took
a 6-4, 4-6, 10-4 victory
over J.P Coogan in the

Charlotte's Ethan Katz at

Murno at No. 5 singles
also lost in three-set

Port Charlotte's boys are
7-3 while the Bulldogs are
9-2. Despite the defeat,
Pirate boys coach Scott
Toney was optimistic.
"We had three split-set
matches with them,"
Toney said. "They could
have gone either way. I
think the district tour-
nament is wide open as
far as a favorite is. I think
we match up well against


both Charlotte and Ida

First off, I apologize about the headline. I can
only squeeze in about three to four words up
there each week, and the head this week is slang,
meaning "marvelous," or "fantastic."
Say what you want about fishing tournaments,
but this one is kind of neat. For the past three
years, the Southwest Florida Council of the Blind
- which advocates for blind and visually impaired
people has held a fishing tournament for the
people it cares most about. Each year, charter
captains and countless volunteers donate their time
to help make memories that will undoubtedly last
a while. This year was no exception, especially to a
local father-and-son duo.
Port Charlotte resident Jimmy Ray Evans and
son, Jimmy Raymond Evans, first competed in this
tournament last year. They didn't know what to
expect, and they ended up winning it all. Humble
as they both are, they entered this year's event with
modest expectations. "I'll be happy if we even catch
a fish," the younger Jimmy Raymond said before the
event. Turns out, they won it again. In fact, they did
it rather convincingly.
This year's event was held at the Cape Coral
Yacht Club hopefully Charlotte County will be
fortunate enough to host the event sometime
soon. Twenty-three captains volunteered their
time and boats in hopes of catching an inshore
slam consisting of a snook, redfish and a trout.
With a redfish and a trout crossed off their list, the
Evans still needed a snook. Never having caught
a Imesider, the senior Jimmy was optimistic, but
young Jimmy was taking notes from Capt. Josh,
ready to save the day. He watched and studied Josh
as he skipped live greenback after greenback under
the mangroves with ease. Meanwhile, senior Jimmy
put a limp greenme on the hook, and blind casted
it behind the boat. And just like that, a loud slap
came from the surface of the water, and senior was
reeling in his first-ever snook. The team made it to
the weigh-in with minutes to spare.
Even without sight, the senior Jimmy had an
easier day than his son, who ended up in the drink
after losing his footing trying to avoid stepping in
the livewell. Hopefully, the sweetness of victory can
nullify the sting of losing a cellphone to the Harbor.
Truly, out of sight.

Look for snook in the early a.m. or later in the day
during moving tides. Redfish are scattered in twos and
threes along the bays and walls of the Harbor. The trout
bite has slowed, but some big ones can be found around

Sheepshead are thinning out, and mostof the fish
still being caught are small. Redfish are biting well in
Pine Island Sound. Fish handpicked shrimp orwhitebait
under the mangroves on the high tides. Lots offish are
biting in the surf- whiting, flounder, small snook
and a scattering of pompano. Shrimp or a silly jig with
orwithouta natural bait trailer will catch all of them.


The king mackerel bite is slowly starting
to pick up. Use silver or gold spoons and use
wire leaders. Troll until you get one, starting
a couple of miles offshore.

King mackerel are running just off the

The trout bite in Pine Island
Sound has been good. Small
topwater lures are working
well in the morning. Shrimp
under a popping cork also
works well.

Ph.:.l.:. p' r.:. 1.3o .
This little girl probably made
her own sandwich a skill
The Fumbling Fisherman
never successfully acquired.


Do you eat while you fish? Most of us bring an assortment of
food items for long trips. The main fare is usually sandwiches of
various kinds: Twelve-inch monstrosities from the convenience
store. Refrigerator left-overs glued together with mustard. And my
favorite: Peanut butter and jelly, lovingly crafted by my wife Mary.
Some anglers load their flip-top coolers with full-blown
meals and snacks. Carrot and celery sticks are popular, though
veggie dips are noticeably absent. Lettuce tends to wilt, which
doesn't bother me. I'm not much of a salad person reminds
me of silage. For people without dentures, beef jerky provides
some jaw exercise and a small amount of nutrition. That's not
to say jerky isn't useful. It can be used to quiet down whining
children. Like a dog's chew toy. For dessert, there's a choice of
chocolate bars. They must be gobbled quickly before they melt
in the sun. The sun usually wins, and real sticky reels result.
But let's get back to the favorite survival item the
sandwich. Preparation is the key, but that's also something that
goes against my very nature. In other words, I am a procrasti-
nator. How about a "live feed"from my kitchen? This is me and
my wife about ten minutes before I head out fishing. Come in.
It's OK, we're dressed.
MARY: "Did you pack a lunch?"

TOM: "I was kind of hoping you would do that for me. It's
what a loving wife would do for her hard-fishing husband".
MARY:"That's not a loving wife; that's a stupid wife. Are you
telling me you can't prepare a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?"
TOM: "Well, sure I can, but you do such a nice job on sand-
wiches. They just taste better'."
MARY, shaking her head: "Sorry won't work, Mr. Manip-
ulator. It's your fishing trip. You make your own lunch."
For all intents and purposes, it looks like I have failed. But
I have one more card up my sleeve. I walk into the kitchen,
bang a few cupboard doors and say, "Uh, where do we keep the
bread?"
Rather than risk destruction of our food-preparation area,
she sighs, kicks me out of the kitchen and mumbles, "I can't
believe I am doing this for you. Men are so hopelessly helpless!"
Tom for the win!
OK, let's cut away from my reality TV script and investigate
the process of eating while fishing. You basically have two
choices: You can reel in your line and eat in peace, or you can
attempt to continue angling while you juggle food items. I
am a beginner, so I don't ever want to risk missing a passing
gamefish. That's not sunblock under my nose. It's a mayonnaise
mustache from lip-gripping sandwiches while I grab for bent
rods. The end result is usually a clean getaway for the fish and a
messy bottom in the boat. Tomato slices floating lazily down a
Gatorade river.
Despite the drawbacks in construction, we hook-hangers
owe a lot to John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich (he was the

inventor of the sandwich, in case you're too ignorant to know).
This culinary marvel has provided nutrition for thousands of
recreational sport fishermen. They are easy to make, cheap
and help keep your icebox clear. Sandwich bread has the added
benefit of soaking up excessive beer in the midsection. I hope.
Don't quote me on that.
Some anglers choose to escape the rigors of food preparation
by zipping up to waterfront restaurants. They tie up to the dock,
wipe the fish slime off their fingers and ask for a menu. It's part
of the Florida lifestyle. Just make sure you get seated upwind
from their table.
One final tidbit, and you may want to finish your breakfast
before you read this part: During my RV travel days, I went
fishing on a party boat in the Bay of Fundy, offshore from
Nova Scotia. The prey was (were?) codfish. And our boatload of
tourists caught literally a hundred of them that day. The mates
onboard had a cute little ritual they went through as they piled
the fish on ice. After bleeding the cod with a quick knife stroke,
these jolly seamen extracted the liver by hand, held it over-
head, dropped it into their mouth and swallowed it whole. Cod
liver oil in its purest form.
It was all for show, of course. But it had the desired
stomach-wringing effect on most of us land-lubbers. In fact,
I wasn't able to finish the rest of my lunch, and what I had
finished was about to go airborne. The mate directed me to
the rear of the boat, and there went my peanut butter and
jelly sandwich. Now it's cheap chum. Hope she didn't put too
much work into it.

NORTH PORT HOSTS PUBLIC MEETING
ABOUT CANOEING AND KAYAKING
Those interested in canoeing and kayaking are invited to
attend a public meeting to discuss the first phase of a project
that will open up the City of North Port's canals to the popular
water sport. The public meeting will be on March 27th from 6
to 8 p.m. at the Morgan Family Community Center (6207 West
Price Blvd., North Port). In August 2013, the CIty Commission
approved an agreement with Kimley-Horn & Associates, Inc.
to provide design and construction management services for
the first phase of the City's Canal and Creek Master Plan. This
phase will allow for connectivity between Blue Ridge Park,
McKibben Park, DallasWhite Park, and Butler Park. The phase
includes portages around existing water control structures.
During the public meeting, the public will be asked for
feedback on amenities canoe and kayak users would like to see
incorporated into the design. A corresponding web version of
the discussion will be made available on YourNorthPort.com,
the City's citizen engagement website, in the coming days. The
City's Canal and creek Mast Plan was first approved by the City
Commission on April 12, 2010. The plan was developed to pro-
mote the City's existing system of drainage canals as features
that can be used for recreation, education, and non-motorized

Well, spring is now a week old, and the
hunting is pretty much over until the fall.
But "pretty much" is not the same thing as
"completely." There's one game animal you
can hunt all summer long, and it happens to
be one of my favorite to pursue: Feral pigs.
As I've said before, hogs don't really
belong in the wilds of Florida. They're a
European species, and their presence in our
woods does the native animals few favors.
They compete with other animals for browse
such as acorns and wild berries. While it's
true they do provide a source of food for
Florida panthers and the occasional bear,
that's about the only good they do for any
other wild creatures.
But while they may not be the best
citizens in our wilderness, they certainly do
have value to me and other hunters. From
a strictly environmental point of view, it
would be better if we got rid of them all, but
I'm torn because I really like to have them
out there to stock my freezer with. Actually,
it's probably a moot point hogs have
been here since the 1500s, and attempts to
eradicate them here and elsewhere have
completely and utterly failed. As long as
there's habitat for them, pigs will probably
always live in Florida.
Hogs are very adaptable in where they can
live. They prefer areas where the soil is soft
for easy rooting and full of tasty worms and
tubers. You'll often see patches of torn-up
ground along roadsides, in pastures and
around planted fields. This is obvious hog sign.
It doesn't really matter to them whether the
ground is muddy or sandy, so long as it has
things to eat. When pigs get together in larger


herds, they can root up huge areas an acre
or more in a single night of feeding.
Because hogs aren't native, they're
managed differently than other wildlife. On
wildlife management areas, there is always
a season for hogs. This season will vary
depending on which WMA you're hunting.
For example, at the Webb, hogs can be
harvested during archery and general gun
only, plus there's a season limit of one per
quota permit or one per exempt hunter. But
on private property, it's a whole other deal.
So long as you're the landowner or have
landowner permission, there's no season or
bag limit at all. You can harvest as many pigs
as you can trap or shoot. You can use dogs
and even spotlight them at night. On top of
that, you don't even need a hunting license.
If you own firearms, chances are you prob-
ably already have a gun that you can use to
hunt hogs. Notice I didn't say it's ideal for
hunting hogs. Although some hunters use
.22 rimfire, I'd never call that a good plan.
A pig is a pretty tough animal, and unless
you get an absolutely perfect shot, all you're
going to do is injure it with a .22.
But almost any larger caliber will get the
job done. A .223 will do it if you are the type
who prefers to take a head shot (like me).
For most hunters, who will probably go with
a shoulder shot, I'd recommend a .30 caliber
rifle (.30-30, .30, .30-06, 7.62x39mm, etc.).
Be sure to use ammo designed for hunting,
especially when you're shooting a caliber
that's also used for military purposes. Full
metal jacket bullets will simply punch a
hole right through the animal, wounding it
instead of killing it most of the time. That's


what FMJ rounds are designed to do -
injure an enemy combatant.
I really think the best caliber for hogs is
an old one that's gotten a bit hard to find.
The .35 Remington shoots a heavy bullet
that will punch right through moderate
brush and deliver plenty of knock-down to
your target. The only gun I know of that's
still being made for this cartridge is a Marlin
lever action. I also like that, because with
a lever action rifle you can make quick
follow-up shots if needed and they're
extremely durable. Lever guns tend to be
compact, which is ideal for maneuvering
in brush and scrub. Rifles with long barrels
and fancy checkered stocks are a little out of
their element when pigs are the quarry.
Shotguns can also be good hog guns,
but you really need to use slugs. Buckshot
doesn't carry enough energy to guarantee a
solid knock-down, nor is it accurate enough
to ensure a clean kill. A slug offers a heavy-
duty punch right now. Even a .410 shotgun
can be extremely efficient at killing a pig.
As with rifles, a shorter barrel is better. Your
engraved 26-inch side-by-side is going to
be out of place, but a pump gun with an
18-inch barrel will be perfect.
You can also be very successful hunting
hogs with a handgun. A 9mm is not quite
enough gun, but I've used my 10mm Glock 20
with no problems. In revolvers, .357 Mag, .44
Mag and .45 Long Colt are excellent calibers.
When hunting hogs with a handgun, a plain
lead or soft-point bullet is usually better. Most
handgun hollow-point rounds are designed
for personal defense, not hunting. They don't
have sufficient penetration to reliably make a


clean kill they disintegrate too quickly.
As I mentioned, I prefer to shoot a hog
in the head. That's because it wastes no
meat and the animal dies instantly very
humane, and no need to spend time tracking
it. If you want to take shoulder shots like you
would with a deer, be aware that the skin
in that area is very thick and tough, almost
like armor plating. You'll notice this more
in males, especially older ones, but even
smaller pigs are not thin-skinned.
I rarely shoot larger hogs, though. When
I kill something, I'm generally killing it to
eat it. A big old tough hog can be made into
sausage, but that's about all it's good for.
Instead, I look for a younger animal, some-
where around 60 to 80 pounds and prefer-
able female. Now that's some good eating
- better than any domestic pork. In fact, I
couldn't tell you the last time I ate grocery
store pork. And that's a good thing I can
get myself fed while also helping to control
an invasive species, plus I get to spend time
out in the woods instead of at Winn-Dixie.
Now that's what I call a win-win-win!

I have achieved my own personal Manifest Destiny. "Go
west, young man'"they said. Well, I'm not exactly a man,
and I sure as shootin'ain't young, but go west I did.
I went to the Englewood area recently and had an
epiphany. Turns out, if I ever get tired of this job, I have my
next profession all lined up although I have too much
to do at Peace River Wildlife Center to even begin thinking
about something like that!
PRWC took in another young great horned owl this
week. Those babies just can't seem to stay in the nest -
they could sure use some Super glue or duct tape. And it
doesn't help that these large owls prefer to nest at the top
of the tallest tree in the area. It's not like they build their
own nests there. They are squatters. They will steal a nest
used by another bird the previous year. Since they breed
fairly early in the season, they often get first dibs on the
nicest real estate. Luckily for us, this nest was probably
used by an eagle or a red-tailed hawk last year it was
large and sturdy, so there is a good chance the baby will
stay put for another few days until he is ready to fledge.
How do these young birds get into such trouble? The
average incubation time for the eggs is approximately
30 days. From the time they are hatched, the hatchlings
will practically double in size each day. At about 6 weeks
of age, they start perching on the edge of the nest
and walking out onto nearby branches (this is called
branching). Within the next one to two weeks, the fledg-
lings will begin to test their capabilities of flight. Many
will stumble and end up on the ground. If they are not
hurt, and there is no imminent danger, the parents will
care for these misplaced babies for a few days until their
strengthening wings enable them to at least flutter well
enough to get back up into the lower branches of the tree.
The youngster we admitted this week was found in the
middle of the street because his nest is directly over the
parking lot of a sales office for a gated community. While
we were there to re-nest him, Karen Wallace, a snowbird
from Massachusetts, pulled in to inquire about purchasing
a home. I don't think she ever made it inside to talk to


the salesperson on duty. She watched our antics and took
pictures. I discussed all the wildlife in the area from the
relative safety of having my feet firmly planted on the
ground, while my able-bodied assistant climbed the tree
to return the bird to his nest.
Okay, so Kevin Barton of the Wildlife Center of Venice is
not my assistant, but he is quite able-bodied. This self-pro-
fessed Peter Pan would rather be climbing trees and
"playing"with animals than sitting in an office shuffling
paperwork. Since I get dizzy on 3 inch heels, Kevin handles
the high elevations, while I talk to the adoring crowds he
attracts.
While Kevin shinnied up the tree, I placed the tiny
owlet into a pillowcase and knotted the top. When Kevin
was in place he, threw a line down to me. I tied the rope
to the pillowcase and he raised the bird up, removed
it from the case and placed it back in the nest no
easy feat, since the edges of the nest hung out over the
branches by at least a foot.
Karen is an animal loverfrom Massachusetts and was
returning home the next day, but I have a feeling she
will be back. Check out our Facebook page to see some of
the great shots she got of the whole process. I may not
know anything about square footage, escrow or docs and
stamps, but I think I should get the commission on this
sale if she buys a house in this subdivision. Turns out great
horned owls aren't the only ones who know a thing or two
about real estate.

SBig cobia are not an easy fish to
target in Southwest Florida, but that
doesn't mean you can't catch them if
you're prepared for the opportunity.


ja


In late February and early March, cobia start
making a showing in Southwest Florida. These
fish are often spotted by anglers seeking trout
and redfish on the grassflats, or along the
beaches. Along the northern Gulf Coast, these
fish often school. Here in Southwest Florida,
cobia are almost always seen alone or with just
one other cobia.
If you spot these fish while you're running,
you can usually stop and go back to them as
long as you don't run them over they're
not spooky by nature. Try to drift up to the
fish, or use the trolling motor. Cobia are not
picky about their diets shrimp, baitfish,
crabs, eels and almost any other small aquatic
creature is fair game. The best lure you can use
is any eel imitation in black or purple. Hogy
and Berkley both make good baits, and Berk-
ley's is already rigged. Even a big bass worm
will work. Berkley's eel is rigged with tandem
hooks, but you can use a single hook with a
Hogy or plastic worm. With smaller plastics, rig
them on a bucktail for a larger presentation.
Most of the fish you'll spot are in the
30-pound-plus range. Your snook or redfish
outfit is probably suitable for a cobia this size.
A 7-foot medium action rod with a 4000 series
reel is ideal, with 12-pound mono or 20-pound
braid. Cobia don't have sharp teeth, but they
do have very abrasive jaws. A 3-foot leader
of 40- or 50-pound fluorocarbon or mono is a
requirement. You can use a shorter leader, but
cobia sometimes jump, and you don't want the
fish to land on your running line and sever it.
Cobia make long, hard runs, so you'll need
a reel with a quality drag. These fish seem to
tire quickly, but their batteries also recharge
rapidly. You may think the fight is over, but
once the fish gets to the boat and you try to
net or gaff it, it will take off like a rocket and
make another run. Be ready for this set
your drag light and anticipate that the fish
may go under the boat.
Don't try to net the fish the first time you
bring it boatside. A green cobia in the boat
will thrash wildly, and they've been known to
break tackle, boating equipment and ankles.
Let the fish run at least three times before you
bring it into the boat. BogaGripping or netting
the fish is better than gaffing, unless you're
experienced with cobia and judging their size.
Cobia have broad heads and can appear larger
than they really are. It would be a shame to
injure an undersize fish by gaffing it.


Cobia are also drawn to cover. Charlotte
Harbor Markers 1,2 and 8 are notorious for
holding these fish, as are Alligator and Cape
Haze reefs. On the reefs, you'll sometimes have
a cobia swim into your chum slick or just up to
the boat. They also sometimes will hang out
underneath an anchored boat while you're
bottom fishing. It's a good idea to hang a bait
out there just in case a cobia shows up. I like
to dangle a piece of cutbait or dead shrimp a
couple feet under the water. Be sure this rig
has a dual-drag spinning reel (like a Shimano
Baitrunner) or a conventional reel with a
clicker you don't want to lose the rod over
the side. You can also have a rod rigged with
a cobia-specific lure, ready to toss it out the
moment a fish shows up. Because you'll be
hooking these fish literally feet from the boat,
a light drag setting is essential. Be prepared
to practice your gymnastics skills once
hooked, cobia often run in circles. That means
you'll be running in circles, too all the way
around the boat, dodging other anglers, the
anchor line, rods in holders and anything else
in the way.
Cobia can also be caught from shore.
Laishley Park, the U.S. 41 bridges and the
Bayshore Park piers are popular spots to hook
a cobia starting in early summer. Most of the
fish found here will run on the large side -
about 30 pounds is average. In these locations,
bottom fishing is the preferred method and
the tackle is heavier. A 4/0 conventional reel
spooled with 40-pound mono on a 6.5- or
7.5-foot heavy action rod is a good outfit.
Many anglers use steel leaders, because these
same areas also hold good numbers of sharks
in summer. A chunk of cut mullet or ladyfish
soaked on the bottom is a good bait, but a
live whiting is the best bait you can get. The
biggest cobia will home in on a live whiting
like no other bait.
Cobia can hurt you in a few different ways.
Not only can their sandpaperyjaws remove
skin from your fingers and hands, but they
also have crushing plates in their throats
cobiaa eat a lot of crabs). In addition, there's
a row of sharp, retractable spines along their
back. If you plan to keep the fish, the best
way to handle it is to cut the throat and let
it bleed out, then get it on ice as soon as
possible. There's a lot of meat on a cobia a
25-pound fish should yield about 15 pounds
of meat. Filleting one can be a challenge for a
first-timer, so it's best to have someone with
cobia-filleting experience show you how;
otherwise, you'll probably waste meat.
Cobia are not an easy to fish to target.
You have to be willing to devote the time to


seeking one, or get lucky and have one just
show up. But catching one is an awesome
experience, and well worth the effort of
seeking these fish out.

"5 I 5.

Some anglers say that bass can't
determine color. Others say that color
means the world, and understanding
this can definitely increase the number
of strikes you get. While there are some
cases where dark versus light colors can
be applied, let's look at taking it to the
next level, and by that, I mean really
getting serious about your bait color
selection.
Let's take a look at the factors that
can impact bait color. Water clarity is
a huge factor. The dirtier the water is,
the less color will show. Another factor
is the light. The light you have that day,
meaning direct light from the sun, can
also play a huge role in whether or not
color can be seen. If you combine these
two factors, you just might come up with
a day to stay on the couch and watch the
game or someone else catching fish
on one of the many fishing shows on TV.
But water clarity and light are the two
biggest factors in determining the color
of the bait you should use.
There is a third factor, but for now,
I'm going to hold off on giving you that
secret until we narrow down how to
select a bait color when dealing with
the two circumstance I mentioned.
When fishing in dark conditions, or
even in dirty water for that matter,
a really dark bait choice is the one to
make. At night, bass feed by looking
up and seeing their prey above them.
Believe it or not, the moon offers
enough light that a shadow can be
determined when fishing at night by
bass. Same holds true for dirty water.
The darker the color, the larger the
shadow will be cast under the water
when the vision is limited. This allows
the bass to home in on its prey when
feeding.
When the conditions are bright, you
want a bait that will show some flash in
the water something that will make
the bass see it without being directly
in its path. If you have a clear water
condition combined with a bright day,
you may not catch many bass, but you
can enhance your chances by casting a
color that they can locate easily, and
from a distance. It's best to brighten up
your bait choice in these conditions.
Here is the "X" factor of bait color
selection matching the hatch of
what the bass feed on in that lake you
are fishing.
Bass here in Florida are notorious
for feeding on golden shiners, shad,
bluegill, shell crackers, grass shrimp,


etc, There are a wide variety of colors to
choose from. So once you get an idea of
that known color, you dig through the
tackle bag to see if you have anything to
replicate the size and color of that bait.
I've gone so far as to come up with my
own color and style of worm. I've caught
more fish on my little plastic worm
invention than most of my other baits
combined. I'm now in the process of
finding someone to pour these baits for
me, because my original maker of these
special worms has fallen on some tough
times and is no longer doing it, and I
can't get the molds. I'm in the process of
looking for someone who can do this for
me, making sure that the color is exactly
as I have it.
I'll try different colors every so often
in Florida lakes to see what may be a
little different that might turn the bass
on. For the most part, I stick with a
Junebug or a blueberry-colored worm.
They replicate the prey that bass feed on
for the majority of the year very well. I
use a combined gold and silver spinner
bait for my blades, and more often
than not, a white skirt. When it comes
to lipless or other crank baits, the sexy
shad pattern by Strike King is awesome,
and silver with blue also does real well.
And yes, these color combinations
have paid off in a huge way over the
years for me. I believe that color does
make a huge difference. So much that
I now look for shapes and sizes, and
varying types of baits, but always in the
color patterns for Florida lakes. That's
why I'm so interested in finding a new
person to continue to pour these new
colors for me. They have done awesome
in the past, and I would like more for
the future.
Don't get me wrong, these are not
the only colors for fishing in all lakes
in the United States. When I make my
trek up to Green Bay, my worms don't do
as well. The bait choice, as well as the
bass you are fishing for, are completely
different. Don't get locked into one or
two colors and think they will work
everywhere. That just won't work.
Take the time to look on the Internet
the next time you head to an unfamiliar
lake and see what's recommended for that
lake.

Matt with his biggest
sheepshead ever, which he
dubbed "Sheepzilla," at the
Placida pier on March 20. It
weighed 6 pounds and was
over 19 inches long.


- -


The pier sheepshead season in Southwest
Florida is unofficially over.
While there is technically no closed season on
sheepies, I'm declaring an end to this one. The
spawn is winding down and most of the fish have
moved offshore or are scattered throughout area
waters. The concentration around our local piers is
thinning out, and the bulk of the fish that remain
are undersized.
With that in mind let's take a look back at the
season and how it compared to ones in the past.
I'll also discuss some of the tips and secrets I've
learned in the most productive sheepshead season
ever for me personally.
The sheepshead usually start showing up
between Halloween and Thanksgiving depending
on the weather, and a water temperature of
around 68 degrees seems to be the magic number.
I didn't get out much in the early season, but by
mid-November things were starting to pick up at
Placida. December was a banner month at both
Placida and Boca Grande, while El Jobean lagged
behind in numbers. I also didn't make it out to L.A.
Ainger pier in Englewood, but reports suggest a
good season there as well.
The fishing really got going in December, and
around mid-month is when I had my best day
in terms of numbers. My buddy Cliff and I must
have caught 40 or more fish between us in the
span of a couple of hours. January seemed to be a
tougher month; but things picked up in February
and the bite was on fire by the end of the month
and into the first two weeks of March before
tapering off.
As compared to seasons in the past, I would rate
the 2013-14 sheepshead season slightly above
average for most of the area. While the eye-pop-
ping numbers might not have been as impressive
as past seasons, there were plenty of big fish in the
17- to 20-inch range. My biggest fish of the season
came on March 20 as things were winding down
at Placida. The 6-pound, 191/ inch bruiser, also my
biggest sheepshead to date, fell for a big mud crab
on the afternoon incoming tide.
Placida was my go-to spot this season, and I
spent countless hours there hanging over the pier
railings enjoying fishing for my favorite species.
And with so much time dedicated to fishing for
sheepies, I learned enough to rethink the tech-
niques I've considered gospel for years.
And I'm going to share my secrets on what I
learned about sheepshead this season with you.

OF BARNACLES AND OTHER BAITS
For me, mud crabs had always been the No. 1
bait for sheepies, but when I saw how productive
barnacles could be I instantly became a believer.
If you've watched the behavior of these fish and
cleaned enough of them to become aware of
what's in their stomachs, then you know barnacles
are a staple of their diets.
When used in tandem with a piling-scraper, it's
hard maybe impossible to beat barnacles.
And if you couple them with a No. 2 Owner cutting
point live bait hook you're on the road to sheeps-
head success.
Barnacles also are more effective than other
baits when the fish are finicky, or"sheepish" if you
will. When the bite shuts down, like it often does
on the outgoing tide, I've seen barnacles catch fish
when nothing else will.
But enough about barnacles, let's get back to
mud crabs.
My two biggest fish this season came on mud
crabs, and for the bruisers these seem to be the
killer bait. I like to use big mud crabs, about the
size of a 50-cent piece (they still make those?).
If they are bigger than that I'll cut them in half.
Cutting them in half also seems to be a good
technique to get a bite on a slow day.
This season I also used wharf crabs, the ones
you find crawling on mangroves and other trees,
as bait for the first time. I think they are every
bit as good as fiddler crabs if not better. I do love
using fiddlers, which have long been the bait of
choice for many sheepshead anglers. But I think
one reason that so many people use them is that
they're available at the bait shop. And buying them
certainly is easier than trying to catch them.
We've got more sheepshead ground to cover
before I'm done talking about them until next
season. We'll take a look at different techniques
and what hooks to use next time.
Until then, hook'em up and fight 'em hard. Fish
on, fellow anglers.

Stump Pass is a
beautiful place to see
birds, and manatees
- especially by boat.


No matter what the outdoor plans are
in Southwest Florida, one must have an
alternate plan. Storms can stir up instantly,
and that recent nasty weather in the north
was moving down toward us this particular
week. The Venice Area Birding Association
planners checked the tides and it seemed
we had the perfect low-tide day, but when
60-mile-per-hour winds and tornado
warnings were predicted, we changed our
scheduled trip to several days later.
We all converged at Stump Pass Marina
to board our rented flat-bottom boat. The
sun was shining, there was no threat of
that nasty weather, and everyone was in
good spirits. Capt. Don Rippeon took us
over to the sand bars first, as they were on
the way to Stump Pass.
Several dozen brown pelicans watched us
with a completely bored expression as we
pulled out into the nice calm Intracoastal
waterway. We slowly drifted along the sand
bars, trying to see the species feeding.
Some waders were too far away to identify.
However, we did see white ibis, a little blue
heron, skimmers and royal and Caspian
terns. To everyone's delight, a mature
bald eagle flew overhead, swooping low
over the water. Sue Love sighted another
mature eagle sitting in a tall pine tree
in the far distance. A Wilson's plover, a
common coastal wader, pecked away at the
far tip of the sand bar. Several willets had
joined the crowd to forage for their break-
fast. Forster's terns were in the air diving
for little fish. In the far distance, a kettle of
black vultures were circling. It was a good
start to the day.
We slowly moved west in the direction of
Stump Pass. Brown pelicans decorated the
pilings along the way. We have had many
field trips to Stump Pass, and they were
always on land. A fellow birder, Andy White,
remarked that it was much easier birding
Stump Pass by boat as he sat comfortably,
observing several sanderlings running back
and forth on the beach. An area at Stump
Pass was cordoned off with posted signs -
hopefully keeping out curiosity seekers and
protecting the nesting birds.
We spotted several ospreys and their
nests high in the bleached-out dead trees.
Kate sighted a belted kingfisher, and we
all eventually spotted it as it flew across

Ski Alley into a grove of trees on the far
side. A common merganser dove into the
ocean and surfaced along the side of the
boat. A great blue heron was resting on
the limb of a tree. "Uh, uh" is the call of
the fish crow, and we heard and saw them
flying through Stump Pass. We also sighted
a cardinal, several mourning doves and a
Eurasian dove. Of course, we saw plenty of
cormorants. In the distance, we could hear
a pileated woodpecker hammering on a
tree. Laughing gulls are always prevalent,
however, I did spot one ring-billed gull.
We were dawdling along where the
White Elephant Pub is located, when
several of us noticed large, dark shadows
in the water near another boat we
were pleasantly treated to a long show
by several manatees. They dove and
surfaced and seemed quite content with
a small crowd of spectators enjoying their
performance. Although we are birders by
nature, this was one of the highlights of
the day. We watched them splash and spin
for quite a while, and it was fun listening
to the oohss and ahhs" from us and the
other boats. I heard a very strange call at
that time, and it took a while to notice
what appeared to be a blue Amazon parrot
on someone's boat anchored nearby. The
parrot must have been excited by all the
activity. We finally tore ourselves away to
continue our little journey.
Several hundred brown pelicans were
sitting in the mangroves close to the
bridge. As we went under the bridge, our
familiar friends, the ruddy turnstones, were
there to greet us. I had been searching and
searching, and finally we sighted several
common loons. On the return trip to the
marina, we sighted a small flock of dunlins
on a lone sandbar.
What a great day with fun folks. We
celebrated with lunch at Stump Pass Grill,
reflecting on a beautiful day, void of any
nasty weather.

It's spring in Southwest Florida, not only
because the calendar tells us, but also because
the fishing is switching into spring mode. In
Charlotte Harbor, the fishy signs of spring
include the spread of spotted trout onto the
flats, the arrival of the first serious wads of
baitfish in the bay, a sudden uptick
in snook action and
the first ,
reports
of tarpon. ,
In the Gulf --', -- '.
of Mexico,.. "'
sharks are
showing, '
and king
mackerel
have arrived.
With the "'
variety of hot
saltwater action
that breaks loose
in the spring,
many anglers
overlook the fact..
that spring in .
Southwest Florida
is also a great time
to fish in fresh water.
Last Saturday morning,
as we were trying to decide how best to
enjoy a perfect spring day, Mrs. Capt. Ralph
suggested that we launch our canoe in a local
lake to sample the freshwater fishing, and
some 60 minutes later, we were afloat and
casting our ultralight rigs.
It was a clear-sky bluebird day, and we
didn't get on the water until after 9 a.m.
- hardly the best scenario for a serious
freshwater fishing expedition, but on this day


it did not matter, because the fishing was on
fire. We caught three species: bass, bluegill
and tilapia. And during the five hours that we
fished, there were few intervals of more than
five minutes without
a fish caught. We
i found that the
smaller bass, fish
from about inches
in length and up
to about a pound
in weight, were
tucked along
t the near-shore
weeds, while
athe larger bass
t were actively
cruising
-s4several feet
sotee toe bi3oyehe atd, outside the
on 0f Obte oe e hi s a weeds.lThe
abO et 1eb e v-,te smaller
I. WCoq ead" bass were
a e"( PK extremely
laW .aggressive,
and there were several
times that one or two fish would follow
a hooked bass back to the canoe. I'm not sure
that it would have mattered much what we
threw at them, since anything that moved
seemed to be attacked, but we caught our fish
on beetlespins, Roadrunners and Yozuri slash
baits.
The lake's underwater landscape was
pockmarked with huge tilapia beds all along
the shorelines in 2 to 5 feet of water, and
large, lit-up tilapia were guarding the nests.
We saw hundreds of these fish, many of which
were loathe to leave their guard duties until
we were virtually right on top of them with


our vessel. Many of them followed our lures,
and a few of them struck probably to kill a
perceived threat to their nests, rather than to
score something to eat.
We caught scattered
bluegill on our beetlespins as IH^h
we worked the shorelines.
The number and size of the
panfish were unremarkable, ,
until we stumbled upon
a surprise a 30-yard
stretch of close-together 0
beds being guarded by
chunky, pugnacious
adult bluegill. Crowded
together in that area
there were at least 0
a hundred bluegill .
beds lined up in
rows like kernels 7.
of corn on a cob,
and each bed was .
guarded by doting .
bluegill parents
who would attack
anything that came near.
We caught and released several big-as-
your hand bluegills before leaving them alone,
but had we desired a bluegill fish fry, there
is no doubt that we could have filled a cooler
with panfish in short order. Finding such an
active patch of bluegill beds was a surprise,
because common wisdom holds that Florida
bluegill bedding season occurs in the summer
months, but perhaps our warmer-than-normal
spring has accelerated the reproductive time-
table of the panfish.
An interesting facet of freshwater fishing
in lakes and ponds in Southwest Florida is
that the fishing can be in different stages in


different bodies of water at the same time. For
example, bass or bluegill might start or finish
their bedding days or weeks earlier or later
in different ponds, even if those ponds are
located near each other. This might be because
one pond is deeper or shallower than
another, or perhaps because
e there is more or
the smallessh less growth
,e o .edZ hi of emergent
Stiy hUas hi or submerged
hogtje6aFUnd himou lF vegetation,
aresuLf or because
one pond is
More shaded
by surrounding
trees than
S another. Water
Chemistry could
Also be a factor, as
Could the abun-
dance of bait, and
there are probably
other influences at
play too, some of
which we might not
Sever completely under-
stand. So, the report
from our expedition last Saturday might not
apply equally to every pond, lake or stream in
the area, but at that one lake on that
particular day, it was red-hot.
Let's go fishing!

We all have an idea of our dream job. You know, a job that you
don't mind waking up to, and one you don't mind staying late at.
While some think about dropping their day job for that dream gig,
others do it. That's exactly what Jeff Kincaid did.
A little more than a decade ago, Jeff was flipping through the
local paper at his day job. A local tackle shop was for sale, and Jeff
did some real soul-searching. He knew a lot about fishing and the
area. He even spent his days at work talking and dreaming about
fishing. A Charlotte High School graduate, Jeff has been fishing the
local waters since he could barely walk. It's what he knows best.
It may have been a surprise to some, but to those who knew him,
taking over a tackle store was the obvious next step in his life. He
quit his job, and the rest is local history.
"I figured I needed to give it a shot;'Jeff says."l absolutely love
fishing, and I love helping people learn how to fish. The best part of
all of this is helping people become better at fishing'."
Located right next to Ingman Marine on U.S. 41 in Port Charlotte,
Capt. Ted's Tackle offers anglers everything they need for a fun
and fruitful day on the waters of Charlotte Harbor. Since 2003, Jeff
has been selling lures, fixing rods and reels and most importantly,
answering questions and giving advice. So why not call the store
Capt. Jeff's? Because that's not his style.
"When I took over, the shop was called Capt. Ted's,'Jeff humbly
says. "I figured people already knew of it, so why change the name?
Plus, I don't want to see my name in big letters everyday'."
Jeff makes it a priority to carry all the top brand names, and top
quality products. He's a one-man operation, and wouldn't have it
any other way. He took a chance, and it paid off. He's living out his
dream. Not everyone can say that.
"It's a lot of work, but dealing with people makes the days go by
fast'Jeff says. "Customer service is definitely my top priority'."
Stop by Capt. Ted's Tackle for all of your angling needs, and be
sure to chat with Jeff. Odds are, you'll pick up a tip or two.
Capt. Ted's is located at 1189 Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte. Give
the shop a call at 941-627-6800.

We were getting ready to head into the
Harbor for a day's fishing. We plugged
in the appropriate points on the chart
plotter, turned on the depth warning
device and fish finder, fired up the four
stroke and quickly put the boat up on
plane. I had my basic rod at hand along
with the anti-backlash reel fully loaded
with monofilament and was sorting
through the tackle box to select the
proper lure for the light and water clarity
conditions when it happened. Flashback!
Suddenly, I was teenager fishing for
panfish on Big Bear Lake in Lewiston,
Mich. This flashback brought to mind
simpler days, and I wondered if any of you
have similar memories. Do you remember
getting up at 5 a.m. to scour the front
lawn with a flashlight looking for night

crawlers? If the morning search wasn't
successful, we looked for every rock or log
that we could turn over in hope of seeing
earthworms scramble from underneath so
we could scoop them up and place them
in our tackle box, which was an empty tin
can.
We used a galvanized floor pail as a
cooler. We bought ice from the corner
store. It was block ice cut from the lake
the past winter and stored in the
"icehouse'" which was insulated with
sawdust.
Our fishing boat was a wooden 12
footer, and I supplied the motor power as
I cranked away at the oars. Later in life,
we were able to afford a 10-horsepower
Johnson. Somebody always had to sit in
the rear and steer the boat by turning the


motor. I liked the responsibility of driving,
but to this day, I can still smell that gas
and oil mixture as it burned.
Our anchor was an empty paint can
we filled with ready-mix concrete. It was
attached to a rope just long enough to
reach the bottom. Our fish finder was
me, as I was told to keep looking into the
water until I saw a bed of"perch weeds"
rising near the surface. Our only safety
gear was the flat cushion I sat on. It had
two circular handles, and I was told if we
sunk to put it on my back and insert my
arms through the handles, wearing it like
a backpack. The boat leaked water but we
always carried a bailing can and learned
how to put our feet up on the oar locks in
order to keep our shoes dry. If the boat
leaked excessively, you knew you were in


for another session of driving "oakum" into
the cracks with a putty knife.
My fishing rod was an 8-foot bamboo
pool with a line tied to the end that had
a hook and bobber attached. When the
bobber went underwater, you quickly
jerked the pole up vertically, and a 6-inch
beauty swung towards you. It was a wild
scramble to catch the fish swinging on
the end of an 8-foot pendulum before it
hit the boat and fell back in the water, or
slapped you or your fishing mate in the
face.
And we call those"The good old days!"

This time of year is great | I
to get out there and do some
night fishing. Now, I know many
people are going to balk at
the idea of fishing the Harbor
at night, and that's the very
reason I enjoy it. There is hardly anyone else on
the water. People are afraid of the dark, I guess.
And when people find out that I run the flats
at night.. .oh, I can't print some of their words
describing my mental status.
Getting over the fear of driving a boat in
the Harbor at dusk isn't that hard. Heck, you're
usually safer on the flats than you are the Harbor.
There isn't anything to hit on the flats. In the
Harbor, you have dozens of channel markers that
aren't lit, and are so covered in salt spray and bird
excrement that they don't reflect light anymore.
And if you are having trouble getting used to
fishing at night, there are a few ways to fish to
ease your nerves.
I don't fish the shallow water any differently
at night than I do during the day. Same set-up,
same bait, same bat time, same bat channel. I'll
change the color of my artificial lures to a darker
color, and I'll make sure everything I throw has a
rattle.
Now, the mangroves are fun, but the flats
are where things really come alive at night.
Especially when the bioluminescent critters are in
the Harbor. They can make night fishing a pain,
because they light up your line in the water, but
sometimes it's nice just to stand on the front of
the boat, turn off all the lights and watch the
light show. It's better than the Fourth of July!
That light show can also be used against the
fish. Ever sight fish for shark at night? I didn't
think so. But you can do, it and it's so much fun.
You watch those light streaks all the fish make,
and you look for the ones that go in circles and
figure eights. Those are the bonnetheads out there
looking for a midnight snack. Toss a freelined
shrimp in their direction and hold on! And don't
forget to keep the lights off until the redfish and
snook you catch are right by the boat so you can
watch the light show they create during their fight.
Now, if you're hesitant about fishing at night,
then stay in the light. It's very easy to launch your
boat at Laishley Park Boat Ramp and simply idle
over to the U.S. 41 bridges and you never even
leave the light of the marina. You can see clearly,
and people can see you. But always remember to
use your navigation and anchor lights.
Fishing the U.S. 41 bridges (and you can include
the 1-75 and El Jobean bridges) is extremely
productive at night. The tarpon and snook are
starting to stack up there already, and you can
also expect black drum and cobia as well. The only
problem with the snook and tarpon is that they
tend to mingle together, so it can be hard to target
one species or the other. Your snook gear isn't
going to cut it for the tarpon at the bridge, so get
that out of your head. But the good news is that
your snook gear isn't going to cut it for a lot of the
snook either. They've been pulling some big snook
out from under the bridges lately.
And it isn't just the snook and tarpon, the
cobia can be big, and so can the black drum.
Fighting any of these species when they are that


big is a handful in open water, but adding a few
hundred pilings makes it even worse. Because
of this, I tend to stick with my tarpon gear. I'm
usually using an 8-foot spinning rod with a 6000
series or better spinning reel.
I'll throw both live and artificial baits, so I tend
to prefer dual drag reels, depending on what
your manufacturer of choice tends to call them.
Baitrunner, Bait Teaser, Live Liner, whatever, that
ability to free-spool the line tends to come in
handy.
For tarpon, I normally use 80-pound leader,
but I'll drop that down to 40- to 60-pound if I
start to throw artificial for snook simply because
those lures tend to be smaller, and I don't want
the heavy leader to have a negative effect on the
action of the lure.
A question I always get is, "Should I use
monofilament, fluorocarbon or metal leader
material?"The answer is simple. Yes. It's dark! It
doesn't matter what leader you use. Fluorocarbon
leader doesn't give you any advantage at night.
It's a complete waste of money. Metal leader can
be just as effective too, because the fish can't see
it well either.
Most of you know what baits and lures to use
for the fish that hang out near the bridges. If
not, then that's a story for next month. But the
best thing to remember is to fish with the tide.
Make sure you're on the side of the bridge the
tide hits first, and fish into the bridge. Make sure
your baits are on the shadow line created by the
streetlights on the bridge, because that's where
the fish ambush their prey. One other piece of
advice is to resist the urge to move. If that tarpon
keeps busting on the surface three pilings down
from you, don't just pick up and move. Chances
are once you do, he's going to start busting right
where you used to be. They'll move around, so be
patient and let them come to you.
If the bridge doesn't sound like fun (seriously,
how couldn't it?), then you can also hit the canals
at night for snook, snapper and other smaller
fish. Look for the fish lights above water or
underwater. I prefer the above water lights for
snook, and the underwater lights for snapper.
Just make sure you're respectful to the person's
property you're fishing towards. There have
been multiple attempts to have fishing banned
inside Punta Gorda Isles, and I understand where
they are coming from. You get tired of people
bouncing 1-ounce sinkers off your gelcoat, and
finding hooks in your mooring lines is probably
even more frustrating, so mind your casting.
But whether you choose to fish the flats, the deep
water, the canals or the bridges, just take it slow if
you're not comfortable. Get used to it slowly, and it
can be both enjoyable and productive.

This tired old man had to
dig into some old bag of tricks
recently to keep the rods
bent and the faces smiling.
It's been challenging out
there, with strong winds and
dirty water, but we finally
got outside into the Gulf
for Spanish mackerel, and
what a blessing that was we caught enough
for dinner. Trout were biting too, but they are
spawning soon, so please carefully release the
big mamas for tomorrow!
Thankfully, business is amazing. People are every-
where, and many are wanting to fish. It's wonderful
when things work out. The weather has made some
days tough but still a lot better than a day up
north while you freeze. Everyone has been happy
to enjoy time on our beautiful waters, and each day
is different we frequently get a string of similar
days, but not enough of them for fishing to light up.
This will soon change, and we will enjoy the calm,
hot spring weather.
I'm still fishing shrimp and lures because bait
has not shown up close enough to me. I hear many
seasoned captains are working hard because it's
not easy or consistent yet, even south of Charlotte
Harbor. I got with Bait Masters and ordered my Capt.
Van's Magic Chum over a month ago, and anxiously
wait the opportunity to use it. Whatever chum you
use, be sure you are stocked up. Minnows are due
anytime, and the shrimp trucks are doing the best
they can, but usually run late this time of the year.
Weekends are tough all the way around. Bait shops
have bigger orders this time of year, and that means
shrimp boats stay out longer to fill orders. Then
traffic slows their drive time down, so just be patient
and use lures if you can.
We had some good trout trips. We were using
rattle corks and live shrimp or lures. The DOA imita-
tion shrimp are good, and a lot better than nothing!
Most soft plastics work under the rattle corks. Just
work it, and make the thing rattle and dance. Many
hard plastics are great, if you make time to build
your confidence in them. If you do, you'll catch larger
fish. My old favorite is the MirrOlure TT 28 it's
gold with yellow and red dots.
Pompano are driving me crazy. We enjoyed good
action a month ago, now only an occasional golden
nugget. I expect to see a push in here soon. I see a


few, and catch one or two, but not like I'm looking
forward to. The Gulf keeps getting churned up, and
dirty water is not what I like. Also, all the frequent
beach refurbishments bury all the sand fleas and
food, but I'm always looking for'em.
As I already mentioned, the great news is that
there are still plenty of Spanish mackerel around.
We caught all we wanted both days last weekend,
and avoided boat traffic. Shrimp and light sinkers
were working, but jigs worked on larger fish better.
They aren't sitting ducks, and require some patience,
but they are around. The biggest ones have been
inside so far, but I expect to see some schools on the
surface soon. Fish are here, we just need the right
conditions. Try a frozen chum block, and be patient
so it gets the chance to do its job. You will enjoy the
results, but carry a few it gets good as the first
one runs out!
Some of the guys tell me they're catching some
snook, even slot fish. Every time the waters hit
75degrees, the weather seems to get cold again. It's
just a question of whether or not they come out too
late for our harvest remember, season ends the
end of April. There will be more fish next year after
these breeders spawn.
I'm not chasing redfish right now, so I can't help
there. But I can tell you that king mackerel are due
soon, and I'm ready. This is the excitement I live for
- big, fast fish with lots of bites and crazy action.
This was the big deal during both spring and fall
when I started fishing and guiding back in the'70s.
We would see hundreds of boats all catching fish and
having a ball every weekend the weather allowed us
to travel offshore. In 1986, the kingfish fishery was
shut down. It was bad. That's not the case today. So
go get some kings.
Thankyou.

Predators of



Pine Island Sound


Kayak fishermen beware! There are some
fast and agile predators swallowing their
prey whole out on the pass with an appetite
for jacks and mullet that most fishermen
take for granted.
Dolphins, you might think? It's not
uncommon to spot them herding fish into
the mangroves at high tide or surrounding
fishermen just off the flats trying to sneak
a bite from their catch. Spotted seatrout,
redfish, or snook they aren't picky by any
means.
Manatee, you say? We see plenty of those
gentle giants right off shore causing a daily
raucous as they dive down and fervently
forage for seagrass in the channel. They
munch on 150 pounds worth of food a day,
and aren't quiet about it either. One time,
we thought we were looking at a pod of
stranded pilot whales, only to find out that
it was a group of manatee going to town on
some underwater vegetation. But they're
strictly herbivores, there's no question about
that. So what's gobbling up fish by the
numbers in Pine Island Sound? I'll give you
a hint it's the most genetically divergent
of shark species weighing in at 125 pounds
and measuring between 6 to 10 feet in
length. It's a fast and active swimmer, with
finely serrated teeth, pursuing its prey at
high speeds, seizing it and swallowing it
whole. Any guesses? It's the spinner shark.
If you've never seen a spinner shark
in action, then you're truly missing out.
Roaming the flats off Pine Island Sound and
Matlacha Pass in search of food, these guys
don't mess around. During feeding time, they
charge vertically in groups through a school
of fish, spinning on their axis with their
mouth open and devouring them ardently
with so much force and momentum that they
spiral out of the water like spinning tops into
the air hence the name spinner shark.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again -
there's nothing better than fishing the flats
from a kayak, especially when you get a
chance to see nature in action. Sometimes
when I'm out here on the water, I feel like
I'm in an episode of Animal Planet Kayak
Fishing untamed! Mullet jumping, jacks
chasing schools of lady fish, bonnetheads
rapidly swimming by, tarpon causing a
commotion in the mangroves and birds of
prey diving down into the water at high
speeds looking to catch their lunch. When
people call up and ask what they might
expect to see out on the sound, or how the
fishing is on the passes, I usually find myself
pausing and thinking before responding.
How do you explain to people who've never


been to our area the amazing wildlife in
action that you see on the water? How do
you even begin? We've seen bald eagles
steal fish from nearby osprey nests as they
battle over the water by dive bombing each
other until one of them gives up the fish.
I've seen manatee come right underneath
kayakers and giving them a big nudge,
either because they're curious, or because
they're trying to scratch their back on the
kayak. How's the fishing you say? Well, on
any given day, you can find yourself reeling
in big reds, jacks, spotted seatrout, snook
or even tarpon. It's never a dull day on the
water, especially when I'm casting a line
from my kayak.
Up until a month ago, I had no idea what
a spinner shark was, let alone that they
roamed the pass just a few yards from the
shore. We've seen bonnetheads, blacktips,
lemon sharks and even bull sharks in the
sound, but spinner sharks, that was a defi-
nitely a first for me. I didn't even know what
was unfolding before my eyes, until a nearby
fisherman was kind enough to educate me
on this amazing creature. This guy was in
a flats boat just a few feet from my kayak,
casting his line into a nearby oyster bed as
this spinner shark decided to spiral into the
air right in front of us. It definitely startled
and shocked me. It's not every day you see a
6-foot shark jumping out of the water. The
fisherman, on the other hand, was unfazed.
For him, it seemed a natural occurrence
around here. This guy was a local fisherman,
and definitely knew his stuff.
We've got generations of local fishermen
in Matlacha who have grown up on the
water fishing the flats. Before the gill net
ban a little over 20 years ago, Pine Island
and Matlacha's economy was based on the
fishing industry. Families made a living
fishing the waters off Pine Island Sound.
Recreational and commercial fishing have
been a part of this area for over a hundred
years. You talk to any local about fishing,
and they're all passionate about their
birthright.
It's been a couple of weeks since I had
that encounter with the spinner shark, and
I haven't seen one since, but every time I
paddle out on my kayak, I'm secretly hoping
that one will spiral out of the water and into
the air so I can feel like I'm in that episode

Revolver or
semi-automatic?


ma


Note to readers: This is part I l / f
of a two-part series. Part // will
run the week ofApril 10.
When people ask me which handgun is better
for self-defense, a revolver or semiautomatic,
my answer is "the one that you feel most
comfortable and proficient with.":' Both designs
have their pluses and minuses, and neither one
is perfect.
The pro-auto folks would say the revolver is
outdated and the semi-autos have more fire-
power, and with today's larger magazines carry
a whole lot more ammunition. Revolver people
would boast about reliability of our trusted
friend, the six shooter, and that because most
civilian gunfights are over in two or three shots,
the large capacity magazines are irrelevant -
if you can't take care of business with six shots,
then you probably couldn't do it with 18.
Trying to convert a
shooter from one camp
to the other is usually i
like trying to get a
New York Yankees fan
to root for the Boston
Red Sox. It ain't going
to happen. Some folks,
like myself, like both
types. Malfunctions on
semi-autos happen way
too frequently, but they
have certainly come a
long way. Years ago, if r ,j ll
you carried a semi-auto,
it was probably a Colt r
1911, or a Browning Hi
Power. The 1911 platform
was, and still is, a terrific
semi-auto, and the Browning Hi Power carried
14 rounds, something no other semi did.
However, back in the day, both had ammunition
issues. If you shot ball or full metal jacket with
these guns, they were usually reliable, but the
early hollowpoint had lots of issues, so back
then most everybody shot full metal jacket even
for self-defense. Nowadays, the semi-autos and
the ammunition have improved greatly, but
we still have to train for malfunctions. On the
other hand, I don't care how far back you go,
the revolver will pretty much eat anything that
you feed it. The revolver remains a solid choice
for many police departments as a backup gun,
or for off-duty use. It also remains the choice
of many instructors when training novices
who probably won't be getting the structured
training and scheduled refresher that law
enforcement or security personnel will.

REVOLVER PROS AND CONS
Ease of administrative handling: The routine
loading, unloading, checking and cleaning that
a self-defense handgun demands is more easily
accomplished with the revolver. This is particu-
larly true if the shooter is injured or lacking in
physical strength with their hands, fingers or
upper body. There is no tough recoil spring to
fight, and even a little old lady can activate a


E

cylinder release latch, push open the cylinder
and load or unload it or check to see if it's in
safe condition.
Simplicity of design: There are no slides, slide
locks, safeties, magazines or any other levers
and buttons to worry about. Nothing that you
need to run a revolver can get separated from
it, except for the ammunition. Simply load the
gun, point the gun and pull the trigger. If the
gun fails to fire, you can in an attack scenario
simply pull the trigger again. What could be
easier?
Reliability: Now, revolvers can jam, but it's
pretty rare. If it does happen in a gunfight, you
have a real problem, but again it's pretty rare.
In all fairness, today's semi-autos have come a
long way and are pretty
|reliable, but if you were
to take all the semi-autos
T that are on the market
today for self-defense,
nand all the modern
revolvers and compared
them for malfunction,
I'd have to say that the
S revolver would win,
hands down. If you gave
S me a choice between a
revolver and a semi-auto
r*i that had been sitting in
a gun safe for 10 years
M without being touched,
and I had to stake my
life on it, I'd take the
revolver every time. Time
and weather conditions can do bad things to
those recoil springs and magazine springs in the
semi-auto.
Ammunition Problems: Your revolver will
usually shoot just about anything you feed it. You
can run blanks, hollowpoint, full metal jacket, rat
shot, real light target loads or standard service
ammunition, and it really won't matter. Many
semi-autos are extremely fussy when it comes
to ammunition. An extremely hot cartridge
may cause the slide to run so fast that it closes
on an empty chamber because the magazine
spring didn't raise the next cartridge up fast
enough. Not holding a semi-auto firmly enough
(limp-wristing) can cause the gun to stovepipe, or
even double feed. You won't ever see that happen
with a revolver. Many semi-autos with aluminum
feed ramps have a problem with blunt-nosed
bullets. Glock does not want you to shoot lead
bullets in any of their standard barrels. With the
precision type of rifling that they use, they feel
there is not enough forgiveness in the dimensions
of the rifling to use lead bullets, and that serious
failures will result, and it will definitely void the
warranty. Revolvers don't have a problem with
lead.
Intimidation factor: Now, this may be kind of
far-fetched, and there are certainly
no guarantees attached to it, but 1

if you're a bad guy looking down the barrel of
a semi- automatic ,you might consider this. Did
he remember to put a round in the chamber? It's
pretty common knowledge that most people who
haven't been correctly trained, don't put one in
the pipe. When you're facing a revolver, you can
easily see the tips of those bullets that are staring
you in the face. There ain't no bluff here!
Behind cover advantage: When you have to
fire from behind cover, you want to use that
cover. With an auto loader, the gun has to be
put out away from the wall, or its slide can
jam from friction on the barricade itself. This
means your head has to come out, and more of
yourself will be exposed. With the revolver, you
can lay the barrel right against the barricade.
This steadies your aim somewhat, but mainly
it brings you in deeper behind protective cover.
Now, I understand they were only talking about
a couple of inches here, but a couple of inches
means a whole lot more of your face being



4 6-ounce amberjack fillets
1 tsp salt


exposed to incoming fire.
Low maintenance: I'm definitely in favor of
keeping your gun clean, but all I'm going to say
here is a revolver is way more forgiving than a
semi-automatic in this area.
Accuracy: This is a controversial area, because
most combat shooting is point-and-shoot, but
you still have to be able to hit your target. I've
seen several tests done by law enforcement and
competitive shooters, and generally both types
will shoot fairly comparable groups but the
revolver will do it a longer distance.
Okay shooters, that's all the good points on the
revolver side of the fence. Next week, let's take a
look at the advantages of a semi-automatic.
Safe shooting.

CAPT. RALPH ALLEN SAYS:
LET'S GO FISHING!
An introductory course in Florida Fishing is being offered
at the PGI Civic Association building on Shreve Street and


to a series of meetings starting April 1 on deer
management in hunting zones B and C in north
and central Florida. The FWC is in the process of
establishing deer management units (DMUs)
throughout the state. DMUs are intended to allow
the FWC more flexibility with deer management
based upon deer populations, habitat conditions
and public preference within each of the units. All
meetings are from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the following
locations and dates:
Chiefland Tuesday, April 1 st, at the Tommy
Usher Community Center, 506 SW 4th Ave.
Monticello Thursday, April 3rd, at the
Monticello Opera House, 185 W. Washington St.
Sebring Monday, April 7th, at Chateau Elan,
150 Midway Drive.
Lakeland Tuesday, April 8th, at the Ramada
Lakeland Hotel and Conference Center, 3260 U.S.
Highway 98 N.
Tampa Wednesday, April 9th, at the Southwest
Florida Water Management District, Tampa
Governing Board Room, 7601 U.S. Hwy. 301 N.
Lake City Monday, April 21st, at the Holiday Inn
Lake City, 213 SW Commerce Drive.
DeLand Wednesday, April 23rd, at First Baptist
Church of DeLand, 725 N. Woodland Blvd.
Vero Beach Thursday, April 24th, at Bethel
Creek House, 4405 Hwy. A1A.
At the meetings, plans for using DMUs will be ex-
plained and all participants will have an opportunity
to provide input. The FWC seeks public preferences
on deer management options such as the size of the
population, greater antler regulations, bag limits,
antlerless deer days and other deer-related issues.
For those who cannot attend any of the meetings,
there will be follow-up opportunities to participate
in a webinar and to view an online presentation
where comments may be submitted. Information
on all of this will be available soon at MyFWC.com/
Deer. For more information, contact 850-617-9487
or at 352-327-3269.

DON'T FEED THE SHARKS


(AP) Four employees of two South Florida dive
boat operations have been charged with illegally
feeding sharks. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission reported last week that it launched an inves-
tigation in February after receiving several complaints that
shark feeding was taking place off the coast of Palm Beach
County during dive charter trips. Officials have charged
Randall Jordan and Thomas Smith, of Emerald Charters
of Jupiter, and Luis Roman and Toni Crumrine, of Calypso
Dive Charters, with operating a vessel for hire within state
waters to allow passengers to observe fish feeding. Jordan
and Roman were also charged with fish feeding. Each
count carries up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine. Fish
feeding in Florida waters has been illegal since 2002.
COP ACCUSED OF BURNING
OWN BOAT FOR INSURANCE $$
A Melbourne police sergeant and a former Melbourne
police officer are accused of burning a boat then filing
a fraudulent insurance claim, the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement announced March 18. The police
sergeant, 38-year-old Brian Wical, reported his personal
2008 Stratos boat was stolen from his home in Palm
Bay on Sept. 29, but police said Wical, together with
40-year-old James Roy Hartman, destroyed the boat.
Wical collected $45,066.72 on an insurance claim.


Investigators said they believe the men conspired to burn
the boat. FDLE began investigating the pair in January
after receiving a tip thatWical was committing insurance
fraud. The men turned themselves into the Brevard
County Jail Tuesday and have since been released.

SUPS ON THE BEACH
A proposal to add stand-up paddleboarding at Siesta Key
Public Beach needs more vetting, county commissioners
said March 19. They asked staff to talk with interested
groups before they determine whether to designate a
portion of the beach for the sport. The public beach con-
cessionaire and owner of the board rental company SUP
Sarasota initially suggested adding paddleboard rentals
there. Lifeguards raised concerns about boarders hitting
swimmers. Staff suggested designating a 130-foot lane
at the edge of the 2,400-foot beach for paddleboarders to
access the water beyond the swim zone. Commissioners
Charles Hines and Joe Barbetta stressed that currently
anyone can paddleboard next to the designated swim
area just not in it. "This is already occurring anyway,"
Hines said. "I think it's a good amenity to have." He said the
county can control it, but needs to figure out the logistics.
WALLS OF DEATH


U.S. fishing boats operating off Northern California and
in other areas around the country inadvertently kill as
much as 2 billion pounds offish and marine wildlife a


year, including sharks, sea turtles and whales that fall
into their nets accidentally, according to a report released
last week by Oceana, a Florida environmental group.
Bycatch the term for fish and oceangoing wildlife
killed but not targeted by fishing fleets "harms ocean
wildlife, wastes important food resources and undercuts
the economic success of our nation's fisheries," said the
report. Oceana lists nine clusters of U.S. fishing vessels
they identify as the nation's most"dirty,"accounting for
half of all bycatch. Among them: Drift gillnet fishers
active in Northern California. The group estimated that as
much as 22 percent of all fish and wildlife hauled up in
nets is discarded every year. Sixteen vessels with a fishery
value of $1.1 million are involved in this kind of fishing
from the Channel Islands off Santa Barbara to Northern
California. Their main targets are swordfish and thresher
sharks. About 63 percent of their haul from 2008 to 2012
was bycatch, the report said, including 21 whales, 290
dolphins and 237 seals and sea lions. Representatives of
the fishing industry say they've worked mightily to assure
that bycatch is minimal.

COMMERCIAL FISHERMEN
TIRED OF DEALING WITH TURTLES
North Carolina commercial fishermen say they are unfairly
burdened with state and federal regulations designed
to protect rare sea turtles, and they want recreational
anglers and boaters to start sharing the pain. In a legal
notice filed this month with fish and wildlife agencies,
attorneys for the N.C. Fisheries Association also called
for a new national count of threatened and endangered
turtles to determine whether they still need legal
protection. "The commercial fishermen would love to
see the sea turtle recover, so some of the restrictions
could be eased or lifted," Beaufort lawyer Steve Weeks
told reporters and fishermen at the Core Sound Heritage
Center on Harkers Island earlier this month. "These
restrictions are tough.The turtle has made a great
comeback. Now, turtles are everywhere."The state's
nearly 5,000 commercial fishermen are required to take
precautions including the use of turtle-excluder devices,
which keep sea turtles from getting entangled and killed
in their nets. Weeks said a sizable share of turtle deaths
and injuries are caused by recreational boat propellers
and fish hooks but these anglers and boaters are not
required even to report these incidents, he said.


PLASTIC FROM SHRIMP SHELLS
}. "


A low-cost, biodegradable plastic made from shrimp
shells could soon be used in mass production of a wide
variety of consumer goods.The material is related to
one developed a couple years ago called Shrilk, which
combined chitin from shrimp shells with a protein derived
from silk. This time, Harvard Wyss Institute researchers
dropped the silk and kept the chitin. The bioplastic is an
engineered chitosan, derived from chitin originating in
discarded shrimp shells. Chitin, a long-chain polysaccha-
ride polymer, is what gives rigidity and toughness to the
exoskeleton of insects and the hard shells of crustaceans
like shrimp. It also makes insect wings both strong and
flexible, and it's available in huge quantities. The new
chitosan bioplastic material is entirely biodegradable. It
breaks down completely within about two weeks after
being discarded in the environment, and even releases
nutrients during its breakdown that plants can use.
To demonstrate this ability, the research team grew a
California black-eyed pea plant in soil they'd enriched
with the chitosan polymer.
TYPICAL CAPTAIN
As a result of a near mutiny the overbearing and arrogant
captain was forced to see a psychiatrist by order of the
commodore. As soon as the captain became comfortable
on the couch, the psychiatrist began the session by asking
the captain, "Why don't you start at the beginning?"The
captain said,"OK. In the beginning, I created the heavens
and the earth..."

Running aground on the flats is
not a whole lot of fun for most folks,
but how about running aground in a
channel? For owners of vessels with
deep drafts, that's sometimes reality.
But that may be changing soon.
On Tuesday, April 1, the West Coast
Inland Navigation District and Char-
lotte County Department of Public
Works will be holding a workshop to
discuss dredging in local canals and
channels. The goal is to establish
an Environmental Resource General
Permit to authorize the WCIND to
dredge in certain areas where it
is determined to be in the public
interest to do so.
The permit will not immediately
allow any one dredging project to go
forward. It will, however, grease the
wheels at the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection. The DEP
would like to see the county develop
a comprehensive plan of how we
want our boating infrastructure to
look. This is the first major step in
doing so.
The plan is still very much in its
infancy, though and that's a good
thing for you. That means there's
still plenty of opportunity for you
to have input into how this is going
to go. If you want your voice to be
heard, come down to the Charlotte
Harbor Event and Conference Center
at 1 p.m. or 6 p.m. Both sessions will
cover the same agenda, but there
are two to maximize convenience for
attendees. See you there.
On other news, your year-long
wait is very nearly over: The 2014


WaterLine Annual Guide to Char-
lotte Harbor will publish tomorrow,
March 28. It will be distributed to all
WaterLine subscribers and also in all
the Sun newspapers sold on the racks
that day. However, it WILL NOT be
available at the tackle shops, restau-
rants and other places where you can
pick up WaterLine for free. This is one
of the advantages of subscribing.
Inside will be an all-new and
completely updated set of maps,
loaded with information about
specific fishing spots and other points
of interest. The guide will also have
a whole bunch of basic information
about the Harbor and surrounding
waters, making this a must-have for
anyone trying to learn this area and a
fantastic reference for everyone else.
If you don't subscribe, buy a copy
of the paper at the newsstand or
grocery store.
That's not the only exciting devel-
opment in the world of WaterLine.
This Saturday we'll be debuting our
radio show the WaterLine Radio
Hour, brought to you by the Ice House
Pub. To start with, we'll be doing just
an hour, from 9 to 10 a.m., on WCCF
1580 AM. If things go well, we might
look at expanding it to 90 minutes in
a few months.
Then again, things might go
horribly, horribly wrong. The show
will be hosted by me, Lee Anderson
and Capt. Mike Myers. None of us
really has radio experience, so we're
just sort of guessing at what we're
doing. Good or bad, you'll never know
unless you tune in.

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

Postconcussive syndrome

needs time for recovery


DEAR DR. ROACH:
Four months ago, I was
in an automobile acci-
dent and suffered severe
injuries a collapsed
lung, broken ribs, broken
lumbar spine, broken/
damaged teeth and mild
traumatic brain injury.
My recovery has gone
quite well, except for
the brain injury. I am a
53-year-old female who
has always been in good
health. I had a CT scan
on my head at the time of
the accident and one
10 days after.
I went to a concussion
clinic several times
following the accident
and saw a neurology
psychologist. Initially, my
brain was not functioning
properly, but its func-
tioning has improved. I
have been released from
the psychologist but not
the concussion clinic. I
was suffering from severe
headaches. On my last
visit, I was placed on
topiramate. It has relieved
the severe headaches.
At the time of my last
visit, I asked the doctor
about the constant
pressure I feel on the
left side on my head
and the fuzziness that
is always present. He
told me the topiramate
might not help this if it is
nerve damage, and it has
helped. I will be returning
to the clinic in two weeks.
The constant pressure
and fuzziness really
complicate my thinking
process and life. Is this
something I should just
accept as a permanent
symptom, or is there
another test I can request
that might get rid of this?
-K.B.
ANSWER:
Postconcussive syndrome
is the name given to
persistent neurological
symptoms following
traumatic brain injury.
The symptoms are
highly variable person to
person, but headache,
dizziness or fuzziness,
and head pressure are all
consistent.
Recovery from postcon-
cussive syndrome takes
time. Most people are
better at three months
after injury, but some
people just take longer to
recover. In my opinion,
more testing isn't likely to
show anything that would
change your treatment.
There are other treat-
ments that have been
helpful for many people
in your situation, such
as indomethacin for
one-sided head pressure.
It sounds like you are
fortunate to have medical


Dr. Roach

care with several experts
available. It's likely that
your functioning will
return to normal.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I
suffered a long time with
GERD. I was diagnosed
with Barrett's esophagus,
a precancerous disease.
My doctor recommended
a procedure called a
Nissen fundoplication.
Since the procedure, I
have not had heartburn
again. I would do it again,
after what I went through.
I get an endoscopy every
two years to keep an eye
on my disease. D.D
ANSWER: Barrett's
esophagus is a compli-
cation of longstanding
reflux. It is diagnosed
when the lining of the
esophagus starts to
look like the lining of
the stomach. Barrett's
esophagus can progress
to cancer of the esopha-
gus. About 0.2 percent of
those with Barrett's per
year will develop cancer,
which sounds low, but if
you live with the condi-
tion for 25 years, that's
about a 5 percent risk.
Surgery for reflux
disease is done only
rarely. However, it is very
effective (85 percent
to 90 percent). The
most common reason
to consider surgery is
inadequate relief from
medications and lifestyle
changes. However, severe
erosions from acid in
the esophagus, inability
to take medications, a
stricture (partial closure)
of the esophagus and
Barrett's esophagus are
all reasons to consider
surgery. Surgery appears
to reduce the risk of
cancer more than other
treatments.
Dr Roach regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but
will incorporate them
in the column whenever
possible. Readers may

Dishwasher efficiency


Dear Heloise: Do you
have any hints to keep my
dishwasher running as
efficiently as possible? -
Sally B. in North Dakota
I sure do! Dishwashers
are such a convenience,
and can keep you from
spending time in the kitch-
en when there are so many
other things to enjoy!
Scrape off big chunks
of food from plates (but
don't wash the dishes).
Don't pack the dishwasher
or overload it with things
like pots and pans. There
needs to be space for
water to do its job and get
the dishes clean. Run the
garbage disposal before
you run the dishwasher,
since most use the same
plumbing.
Do use the correct deter-
gent for your dishwasher.
Check if the detergent
contains a rinse agent. If
not, you may want to add
one.
Finally, check the seals
around the dishwasher
for cracks or leaks, and
clean under the trap in the
bottom from time to time.
You may be shocked at
what you find! Heloise

Hidden coupons
Dear Heloise: Just want-
ed to point out something
I noticed the other day. I
use boxed ingredients to
make cakes and muffins.
They are a staple in my
pantry. However, some-
thing caught my eye when
I was throwing away a cake
box. I had never noticed
the coupons inside. Look

Clean duster
Dear Heloise: What is the
best way to clean a feather
duster? I feel like I am just
transferring the dust from
one spot to another. Help!
- Ashley in Texas
Cleaning a feather
duster is easy and will help
you get rid of the feeling
that you are just pushing
the dust around! Get a
large plastic or paper bag
(one big enough for the
whole feather duster to
fit in). Place the feather
duster inside, and then
dump in a whole box of
cornstarch. Secure or hold
the bag closed tightly and
shake it hard for about 30
seconds. To avoid making
a mess inside the house,
do this outside. Once you
are done shaking, remove
the feather duster from
the bag and shake it until
all of the cornstarch has
been removed. Clean your
duster periodically, as of-
ten as you think is needed.
Happy cleaning! Heloise

Friends urge (

younger grand

DEAR ABBY: I'm 62 and
own my own home. I have
legal guardianship of my
eldest grandson, who is 5.
Another grandchild is2 21
and in foster care. I would
like to keep both children
together because I have
been told that in the long
run it is better so they won't
lose contact with each
other.
Some friends of mine
have been telling me I
should let the little one get
adopted through the state
in a closed adoption. This is
really traumatic for me and
I'm not sure what to do.
Please give me some
advice. I love both of my
grandchildren and want
the best for them, now
and in the long term.
-QUANDRIFIED IN
CALIFORNIA
DEAR QUANDRIFIED:
Many grandparents raise
their grandchildren success-
fully. If your health is good,
and you have a high energy
level and relatives who can
provide respite when you
need it, have both of your
grandchildren live with you.
If not, you must consider
what could happen to them
if something should happen
to you.
AARP can be a helpful
resource. It offers infor-
mation on a wide variety
of issues related to raising
grandchildren, financial
assistance and advocacy. To
find out more, go to www.
aarp.org/grandparents.
DEAR ABBY: I have been
divorced for about 10 years
and have dated far more
since my divorce than I
did before I married. The
marriage ended because
my wife was emotionally
abusive.
What disturbs me is that
somehow I either attract,
or am attracted to, emo-
tionally abusive women.
They are usually successful,
confident, good-looking
and controlling, and the
results are always the same.
The relationships don't last
long. How do I stop being
attracted to the same type
of partner? REPEATING

Dear Abby

how the pattern became
established in the first
place. People are usually
attracted to the familiar,
and it may have something
to do with the dynamics
of the family in which you
grew up. Ask your doctor
for a referral to a psychol-
ogist who can help you to
understand, so you won't
make the same mistake
again. It's the quickest fix for
what ails you.
DEAR ABBY: I take pride
in my looks, and when I
go to parties, the dresses
and accessories I choose. I
am often asked where they
came from, and I feel the
question is rude and inap-
propriate. Am I being rude
to evade the question, or
is there a proper response
when I'm asked? -TIME

DEAR TIME AND PLACE:
When someone asks
where you found an item
you're wearing, it is usually
intended as a compliment
because the person would
like to find something
similar. If you prefer not
to share that information,
smile and thank the person
for the compliment, then
change the subject.

Opening lead: Eight of A

South's double was an attempt to
bring his hearts into the picture, but
North was unwilling to bid his poor
four-card heart suit.
The defense started with a spade to
the ace and then the spade queen,
holding the lead. East switched to the
ace of hearts and another heart. South
won his king, drew trumps in three


rounds, and switched to the queen of
clubs. East grabbed his ace and
reverted to spades. South ruffed and
cashed his last trump, coming down
to two low hearts and the club jack
opposite the King-10-eight of clubs
in dummy. West couldn't stand the
pressure. He had to discard the queen
of hearts or a low club either was
fatal to the defense. He chose a low
club, so South overtook the jack of
clubs with the king and the board's
two remaining clubs were now good.
The defense could have done
better. East should have held up his
ace until South played his last club,
preventing an entry to dummy's club
suit. On this hand, that meant
winning the second round of clubs.
How could he know to do this? Good
defenders rely on "count signals". On
the lead of the club queen, West
should play a high spot card if he
started with an even number of clubs,
as here, or his lowest spot card if he
started with an odd number of clubs.
East would then know exactly when
to take his ace.
