Florida has much higher taxes than you might believe. The idea that Florida is a lowtax state is unfortunately just a shell game perpetuated on us by the folks in Tallahassee. Heres what youve heard from your governors and your state Legislature, past and present: Florida is a low-tax state because there are no income taxes, thanks to low state-government spending. It is a fact that Florida currently ranks 47th in per capita state taxation. Sounds pretty good. What can be wrong with being the 47th lowest in per capita state taxation? It just aint so. Our legislators and governors hope you cant follow the pea under the cup as they rapidly move your tax burden around. Heres one way they move the tax burden around to make themselves look good: Even though we have no income tax, Florida nickels-and-dimes people with lots of taxes charged on top of other stuff you buy. You know the fees that your governors and legislators say dont count as a tax: cellphone taxes, utility taxes, cable taxes, gasoline taxes, alcohol taxes, tobacco taxes, insurance taxes, stock transfer taxes, document taxes and regular sales taxes. You may not be aware that Florida has the highest state tax on utilities in the country. Theres no income tax in Florida, but we need a bucket to carry the fees that the state charges each of us. There is another way our state government tries to fool you. Look over here no state income tax but look up their sleeve. The state government of Florida creates so many mandates foisted on local governments that our property taxes are among the highest in the country. Of all the government spending in Florida, state and local, 55.6 percent is funded by local governments. That is the second highest in the country. The burden of having the second-highest property tax in the United States is by intentional design of our governors and state legislators. Your local school board and county commission get the blame for high property taxes while the state government looks like your friend. The list of creative ways Florida reaches into our pockets is endless. Add all those nickels and dimes at the state and local levels and, as late as 2006, Florida actually ranked 22nd in total per capita taxation, even though we have no state income tax. We are not a low-tax state. Our state government is running what amounts to a con game on its citizens. Heres whats wrong with the tax misinformation we are told: Much of the property taxes and fees fall heavily on low-income retirees and the working class. If you are retired on a xed income, and it seems like it is hard to stretch your dollars every month, despite having no income tax, there is a reason. If you are working class, trying to make your paycheck last from week to week, there is an additional reason why it is so hard. We are not a low-tax state. No one running for state ofce is talking about this bizarre tax con game. Our state ofcials believe they can mislead us into thinking we are a low-tax state. Dont fall for it.

But the school couldnt survive a downturn in the economy later. After 38 years of serving as a safe place for young children to learn about life and God from teachers who love them, the preschool will close its doors Tuesday a day before the Local preschool world gets a little smallerBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERPRESCHOOL | 6 PUNTA GORDA With jury selection expected to be completed Wednesday, the Rotonda II sewer trial may begin as soon as today, to deter mine the amount of damages Charlotte County must pay. In January, 20th Circuit Judge Joseph Foster found the county liable for failing to provide water and sewer service, denying plaintiffs the oppor tunity to develop their properties. Key to determining the amount of compensation will be the formula established by Foster, which calculates factors such as loss of property value, market rate of return, and the number of years impacted. Ultimately, the amount could range from zero to $60 million, the amount cited by the plaintiffs attorney in a pretrial hearing. In the Rotonda II case, the lawsuit charged that the property owners of more than 1,000 lots in Rotonda Villas were prevented from developing their land due to a lack of water and sewer service. The court found that the county, in denying building permits, committed a taking of property rights from the plaintiffs, known as the Andress Family Florida, along with Rotonda Lakes II LP, Rotonda West LLC and the Cape Cave Corp. Charlotte County also lost in a related lawsuit, led in 2009. In the initial case, the county ended up paying $13 million for failing to maintain an existing sewer system that led to the foreclosure of 150 lots in Rotonda Villas.Rotonda II jury trial underwayBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERTRIAL | 6NORTH PORT Lines formed for popular booths as dressed-up candidates with rsums in hand perused the offerings at the North Port Economic Development Corp.s rst job fair Wednesday.

The Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce and Florida Power & Light crews also responded to the call. Fireghters reported spotting smoke and re from a chimney atop the three-story residence with a tile roof. The report stated reghters described the chimney as being at a difcult location, and had to tear out portions of the chimney, but the re was contained quickly. Englewood Fire Chief Scott Lane said Wednesday that the cause was a lightning strike. Damage was limited to the exterior of the home. Lane credited a neighbor calling 911 soon after the lightning strike with helping to minimize the damage. The residents were not home at the time of the re, Lane said. According to the Charlotte County Property Appraisers Ofce website, Britons Alan and Linda Westall own the single-family residence, with an assessed value of $1.46 million.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comLightning sparks house fireBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER

The Sun /Thursday, August 7, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT A North Port man was charged with lewd or lascivious molestation after authorities in Wisconsin linked him to images that showed nude or partially nude female children, according to the North Port Police Department. Patrick Blankenship, 37, of the 4700 block of Escalante Drive, allegedly posted images of two girls between June 26 and July 7, with some of the images showing a sleeping child whose hand had been positioned in her underwear. According to a report, at least one of the victims is 5 years old, and one or possibly both girls were under Blankenships care. The Wisconsin Department of Justice collected and preserved images posted by Blankenship, along with suggestive comments and requests for trades from other users of a particular website or ser vice. Blankenships user name also was linked by authorities to several other sites, including YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, which also showed photos of the same children. Its unclear, specically, when North Port detectives were alerted to Blankenships alleged activities, but they recently searched his home and conscated all of his media storage devices. Blankenship agreed to be interviewed by detectives at the North Port Police Department, but much of the inter view was redacted from the report. Blankenship was taken into custody Tuesday, and was transported to the Sarasota County Jail, where he remains without bond. Blankenships Facebook page shows that he and his family moved to Florida in June, with a posted photo of a sign at the state line with the comment: My familys new home. Other photos on the page show Blankenship, a woman and a couple of female children spending time at area beaches. Blankenships wifes Facebook page states that she lives in Texas, which is where they lived before moving to Florida. According to state Department of Children and Families spokeswoman Natalie Harrell, the agency had no prior contact with the Blankenship family, but has opened an investigation after Patricks arrest. Harrell added that the two children involved are currently with other family members. Blankenship is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 5, according to court records.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comNorth Port man charged with molesting childBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER BLANKENSHIP VFW spaghetti dinner VFW Post 10178, 550 N.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, August 7, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA The man accused of holding up a bank teller July 25 has been arrested, according to the Punta Gorda Police Department. John Robert Haldemann, 30, of Naples was detained Tuesday by members of the FBI. The suspect allegedly had walked into the Bank of America at 100 Madrid Blvd., showed a gun to the teller, and made off with an unspecied amount of cash. A resident in the area noticed what the resident felt was a suspicious vehicle, and reported a partial tag number to the police. The PGPD provided that information to the FBI, who used it to make contact with the suspected getaway driver Tuesday, before nabbing Haldemann. The drivers name is not being released. He has not been charged. Haldemann is being held at the Collier County Jail on charges related to another bank robbery, which occurred in Naples. He will face a charge of armed bank robbery in Charlotte County.More cooler-theft chargesENGLEWOOD Authorities have led more charges in relation to a string of cooler thefts from boats in the Palm and Gasparilla islands area since April.

According to the CCSO report, a man came forward July 17 after he read an article that day in the Sun about the thefts and the boys arrests. He told author ities that in May, Bobby Caspolich, 18, and Tyler Nelson, 17, sold him an expensive Yeti cooler, like the ones that reportedly were stolen. Caspolich, another LBHS football player, was charged Monday in relation to that case and another. He now is facing charges regarding 11 thefts. Nelson was charged in connection with the same two most-recent cases in which Caspolich was charged, plus another theft in which Caspolich previously was charged.Venice motorcyclist killed in wreckSARASOTA COUNTY A Venice man died Tuesday when the motorcycle he was operating was struck by a car that failed to yield to his right of way, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

SOUTHEAST OF PUNTA GORDA The steady summer rains feeding Popash Slough in this rural area have covered Little Farm Road, limiting access to homes. With each downpour, passage becomes more difcult. That soggy scenario rst took place during last years rainy season. This summer, as rain again soaks the region on a daily basis, Little Farm Road continues to be under water. Although the county is aware of the ooding problem, and has debated various remedies for months, the solution remains elusive. At the last Charlotte County Commission meeting, a proposal to build a primary drainage structure for the road again was postponed. The sad thing is that it doesnt come as a surprise to me, said Patricia Fountain, who owns a home on Little Farm Road. Even in the dry season, the slough doesnt allow home service by school buses, garbage trucks and the U.S. mail. But in the rainy season, ooding conditions are ever-present. Its probably under 18 inches of water now, Fountain said Wednesday. My renters have moved out, basically because of the water situation. Commissioners have considered a number of options during the past year, including investing in a bridge, buying the affected properties and installing huge concrete box culverts under the road to improve drainage. Prompting the county to do something is the possibility of a lawsuit if the situation is allowed to exist. But when the drainage projects cost estimate reached $437,969, commissioners drew the line. That was last year. At the commission meeting July 22, commissioners were told that the total cost for the project had reached a high-water mark of $633,438. Thats a ridiculous amount of money, Commissioner Chris Constance said. Commissioner Bill Truex also was disappointed in the staff recommendation to approve the bid. Quite the predicament were in, Truex said. This project has continued to become more and more expensive. Particularly upsetting to commissioners was the nearly $200,000 in extra costs, mostly for construction inspections and testing. County engineer Joanne Vernon explained that all in-house inspectors are busy with other projects, forcing the county to contract out for inspections. Because inspections require a daily presence at the site, including an hour commute each way, the hourly rate for the position adds up quickly, Vernon said. In the end, the County Commission directed staff to renegotiate the contract for a lower price, based on budget restrictions. However, in the interim, Commission Chairman Ken Doherty is oating an idea that could be the long-term answer needed. Doherty wants the county to establish a new municipal services taxing unit, so property owners in the geographic unit pay for services that benet their particular area. If an ordinance is passed to create an MSTU, a special assessment could be used to reimburse the countys general fund for any work done on Little Farm Road. In addition, the MSTU could pay for future work, such as a large-scale drainage study in the area, as well as other necessary drainage-improvement projects, such as along Bermont and Farabee roads. Historically, this area has had primary drainage issues, Doherty said in a later interview. This would be the rst time we have a funding mechanism to properly address some of these issues. In a discussion regarding the MSTU, several steps were identied. First, the boundaries of the MSTU, and what properties would be included, must be determined. If all goes according to plan, the East County Stormwater Utility could go into effect Jan. 1, 2015. The amount of the assessments then would be part of next years budget talks. The main difference between an MSTU and an MSBU (municipal services benet unit) is that revenue for MSTU work programs is produced by property taxes. There are currently 83 special taxing districts in Charlotte County.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comTax district proposed to stem Little Farm dilemmaBy Gary RobertsSTAFF WRITER SUN FILE PHOTO BY GARY ROBERTSPatricia Fountain drives her truck across Popash Slough after rains this spring.

The promotions work like this The Elipsis 7 and the hotspot is on sale for $49.99 with a $50 rebate from Verizon.

It has a 7-inch high-definition display. The hotspot offers mobile Internet wherever you want.

The event was sponsored by Fawcett Memorial Hospital and CORE Construction. Its what North Port needs North Port hasnt had one, said Tina Covey, one of the fairs job seekers. In the past, I had to go up to Sarasota and Bradenton for job fairs. Although Covey said she wouldve liked to see more employers specifically from North Port, she was pleased to see a few that were. I got a couple good leads, she said. Steve Giambri, a retired police ofcer from Illinois, moved to North Port two weeks ago and was impressed with what he saw. It was denitely way above what I thought it was going to be. It was great to see the number of people (and businesses) here too, he said. I pretty much hit every table to see what opportunities were down here. Overall, NPEDC Chairman Peter Bartolotta said, the event was a hit. Im pleased with the quality of vendors and number of participants, he said. Former chairman Robert Rosenberg added the excitement surround ing it became clear when job-seekers showed up early as the representatives set up their booths. I sort of wish I needed a job, he said. Attendees were registered by CareerSource Southwest Florida, which is able to provide nancial aid for job-seekers who need training and meet certain qualications. Debbie Guilbault, a CareerSource supervisor, said veterans and people who are unemployed, have low income or are receiving food stamps may qualify though there are more specic criteria. One attendee, Igor Igolnikov of Venice, said talking to CareerSource was one of the highlights of the fair. I highly recommend them. They gave me all this information, he said. For job seekers who missed the event, Guilbault recommended they visit CareerSource Southwest Florida ofces and mobile units, which can be found in Port Charlotte, North Port and Venice. Paul Sobotka, a representative for SunCoast Trucking Academy in Punta Gorda, which trains truck drivers, said CareerSources aid opportunities help people invest in training, which helps add people in the workforce. Theyre helping all the employers, and Im helping people go through them, he said. According to Sobotka, a better economy is increasing the demand for workers. Drivers are in demand right now. The economy has changed, he said to a potential applicant, adding his academy had a 98 percent placement rate. Sobotka, who had been manning the booth for a little over an hour, said so far hes gotten some very good responses, and the event had a lot of people. Representatives of Fawcett, who set up with cupcakes and other goodies, also were pleased with the turnout, which Harris estimated was more than 150 at the events peak. Its been really good. Weve talked to a lot of folks were really excited, said Fawcett rep Ramona Dumas. The event exceeded our expectations.

It was with heavy hearts and after much thought that we came to this decision, said Dick Woodhull, chairman of the school board at Small World. Staff were notified of the decision Monday. Ive been crying for two nights, teacher Carol Howard said Wednesday, as she looked around her classroom. But its tears of blessing, along with tears of sorrow. The 73-year-old has been an educator at the school since shortly after it opened its doors in September 1976. Shes dealt with mostly 2and 3-year-olds. Ive had so many children come through my doors, and I love them like my own, Howard said. And I still see them. I know a lot of doctors and cops around town. Howard was playing trains with 2-year-old Dawson Wednesday. The toddler is the son of Charlotte County Sheriffs deputies Robert Tuck and his fiance Jeanette Shultz. The couples other son, Ryder, 5, also attended the preschool. Howard also has taught other members of the Tuck family. We were completely blindsided by this news, Shultz said. Its devastating. The teachers truly love our children, and you dont ever have to worry about if theyre safe. Shultz remembers one time she forgot to pack Dawsons bottle. Howard went and got him a new one. That woman is like a grandmother to him, Shultz said. Theres just something about her that makes her special. Woodhull said the choice to shut down the preschool was difficult, but there wasnt any way to fund it. The church has contributed more than $100,000 over the last three years to help the school, he said. And it was getting worse. The school board chairman said a drop in enrollment was another reason for the schools closure. There were 97 students for the 2013-14 school year. Less than 60 were signed up for the 201415 school year. There were 45 kids in the summer program. We didnt have good pre-enrollment for the fall, and the numbers in the summer program werent where we wanted them to be, Woodhull said. All of the finances were drying up at the same time enrollment was going down. Small World which, along with attached First Presbyterian, is nestled in the struggling Parkside area of Port Charlotte offered preschool for children ages 2 to 5, a voluntary prekindergarten program, and after-school care for students up to fifth grade. All those programs will be lost. Woodhull said the church, with a congregation of about 400, will use the preschool building to expand its Sunday school services. Eighteen staff members including 10 teachers will lose their jobs due to the preschool cuts. I was blessed to have worked here, said Caryn Larkin, the VPK lead teacher, hired in 2008. These children are our gifts, she said. And we were able to plant a seed early and get the Lords message to them Theres a lot of tears around here.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comPRESCHOOLFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTOS BY ADAM KREGERDawson Tuck, 2, plays trains with Small World Christian Learning Center teacher Carol Howard on Wednesday, one of the nal days before the 38-year-old Port Charlotte preschool closes its doors.

The Fish-A-Thon named for Redmans son who died in 2010 from a shallow water blackout while spearshing in Boca Grande attracted 150 children 12 years old and younger last year. She is hoping 200 children will turn out for this years event. Redman sees the event as a tribute and celebration of life in memory of her son. The Fish-A-Thon is scheduled for 8:15 a.m. Aug. 31 at the Tom Adams Bridge on Beach Road. Check-ins begin at 7 a.m. Parents are asked to register early and can do so online at www.englewoodpioneer days.com. The event is free. Bait will be provided. Participants are asked to bring a rod and reel. The rules are simple: Show good sportsmanship. Those who do not may be asked to leave. Respect the sh by employing catch-andrelease practices. Should donated bait run out, participants can purchase and use their own bait to keep shing. Trophies will be given to participating anglers for the longest sh, shortest sh, ugliest sh, heaviest sh, most unusual catch and most sh caught. All participants at least the rst 200 will receive a certicate and a goody bag lled with inexpensive gifts donated by local businesses. Redman said the FishA-Thon itself is possible thanks to continuous community support and donations from Capt. Chris ONeill of Team Reel Saltwater and Capt. Jesse McDowall, the Lemon Bay Sunrise Rotary, other businesses and individuals. Support for the event has been amazing, Redman said. My family and I would like to thank the greater Englewood Area for your support. You have taken us into your hearts.

Its not always about converting mixed numbers to fractions or nding the adjective in a sentence. Sometimes its just being there to listen to a sixth-grader talk about her feelings. The one hour a week spent with a child as a mentor is often meaningful to a student who might be struggling, according to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast. The organizations mentoring program serves children from Venice to Port Charlotte. Currently, 70 children called Littles are on a waiting list to be matched with an adult, called a Big. The nonprot organization is recruiting volunteers to mentor children ages 6-18 in the Englewood and Port Charlotte area. Of the 70, 52 are boys, and 18 are girls. There are several types of mentoring that can be done with children, said Mary Beth Harris, community resource director at Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast. There is the school-based program where the Big meets with the Little at school. The teacher or guidance counselor can tell the Big what subjects they believe the pair could focus on for the hour. Theres also an activity-based program where the Big and Little can go to the park, a ballgame, have a picnic, wash a car together, etc. For four years, Don Mahon of Rotonda has been matched with a Little through a sports program. When I got my Little, he was 10 years old, Mahon said. He became 14 last Wednesday. We are in the sports buddies program. That involves taking in quite a few athletic events. Once a week we go anywhere in a 30-mile radius. Weve been to many Stone Crabs games. Hes gotten players autographs. He absolutely loves to go to hockey games and watch the minor league teams play. When the ghts break out, he really pays attention. Mahon said the pairs travels include going to the movies and Cedar Point Environmental Park, eating hamburgers and treats, and visiting museums. They recently attended their rst Tampa Bay Rays game. When I had my orientation meeting with him, his mother was present, Mahon said. I explained my background. He gave me his. Then he said, How do I know I trust this guy? I had a challenge from the beginning. We went to knock some balls around what used to be Duffys, and I bought him ice cream. Three weeks later, I asked him if he trusted me and he said, Of course. That was the start of our four-year friendship. Mahon said his Little has transformed into an above-average student. He used to attend Myakka River Elementary School, and now is about to enter eighth grade at Sky Academy in Venice. When we rst met, he wanted to be a video (game) designer, and now he wants to go to college to become a medical doctor, Mahon said. I think Ive made a little impact on his life. He was quiet when we rst met; now I cant shut him up. Hes very inquisitive and wants all of the facts. Its really great. At 82, Mahon says his Little energizes him. I was so enthused about being a Big; it rubbed off on our Florida daughter, he said. She is a nurse and has a tough work schedule, but she has become a Big to my Littles twin sister. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast serves 10 counties. There are about 1,700 matches of Bigs and Littles. We are the only father/daughter combination. I laugh when people tell me they are too old or too busy to be a Big, because its not a burden whatsoever. There are 23 kids looking for a mentor in Englewood, he said. Even though there are 146 matches, there are kids whose parents or guardians apply every day of the week for a mentor. An individual can become a mentor at 18. The oldest mentor Ive had is 90, said Melissa Nelson, mentor manager. We have a variety of mentors. Some are lawyers, real estate agents, jewelry store owners. One is retired from Harley-Davidson. He designed and built motorcycles. We have a machinist. He helps design and build tools for large construction companies. We have a (former active-duty) Marine. One man traveled all over and maintained and xed sailboats. We have people who own restaurants. We have people who worked for the county, area police ofcers, reghters; one of our volunteers is a reghter who strictly works on the boat. They come from all walks of life.

Our Town Page 8 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, August 7, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS SARASOTA COUNTY Noise walls, uctuating constructions costs and new signage will bump the price tag up millions for the diverging diamond interchange at University Parkway and Interstate 75 in north Sarasota County, according to Florida Department of Transportation ofcials. FDOT Transportation Engineer Kevin Ingle said the project, once projected to cost up to $65 million, now is sitting at $72 million. Scheduling of the project remains the same, according to Ingle, with design work set to be nished next spring, and construction starting sometime late next year. Ingle said funding for the project has not been secured yet, but added that it would come from the state and federal levels, not from Sarasota or Manatee counties. As planned, the new interchange will eliminate the need for trafc signals that control access onto the interstate, and will allow trafc to ow freely onto I-75. Plans also call for widening about 3.5 miles of I-75 from north of Fruitville Road to north of University Parkway to an eight-lane highway with three through lanes and one auxiliary lane in each direction. The project also will widen the I-75 bridges over Erie Creek, and will replace I-75 bridges over University Parkway, as well as widen about 1 mile of University Parkway from the Cattlemen Road/Cooper Creek Boulevard intersection to the Market Street/ Lake Osprey Drive intersection. The diverging diamond interchange currently is being used in several others states, including Utah and Georgia, Ingle said, but this will be the rst in Florida. Similar inter changes are being eyed for the I-75 interchanges at Clark and Bee Ridge roads in Sarasota, he added. While not being driven by the soon-toopen Mall at University Town Center, an 880,000-square-foot shopping center from Benderson Development, Ingle said the new interchange certainly will help what will be a higher amount of trafc in the area. Sarasota County commissioners originally expressed frustration with the FDOT after learning of the new inter change from local media outlets, instead of FDOT ofcials during regional Metropolitan Planning Organization meetings. County Commission Chairman Charles Hines wrote to FDOT District 1 Secretary Billy Hattaway that communication since has improved after conversations during the most recent MPO meeting, and called the interchange critical and muchneeded for the University Parkway corridor.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comCost for Sarasota diamond interchange growsBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER PHOTO PROVIDED BY PAUL VIDELA/BRADENTON HERALD A frame from a computer-generated video illustrating the diverging diamond interchange concept in Sarasota from overhead.

VENICE Where you enjoy your sh and chips, homemade pasties, liver and bangers in Venice is about to change when the British Open Pub moves to a new larger location. For 16 years, it has provided those typical London Cockney favor ites on South Tamiami Trail. Owners Kelly and her mom Kathy Oliver announced this week they are opening the British Open Pub in the south end area of the Jacaranda Commons Shopping Center at 367 Jacaranda Blvd., near Publix by the roundabout. We could not be more excited, Kelly Oliver said. For years, our customers have been telling us they want more seating and a full liquor service. We want to make it feel like Cheers but with our top-notch food and service. The move increases the size from 2,500 to 3,600 square feet. Seating will increase from 103 to 170 with high-tops in a lounge area around a larger bar and booths in the front dining room. The increase in seating will qualify for a liquor license, enabling diners to enjoy Scotch whiskey, bourbons and afterdinner coffee drinks with liquors. The popular European inuenced items will remain on the menu, but Oliver will be introducing fresh new items as she does annually at the beginning of each New Year. Sunday dining at the pub begins when it opens at the new location and regular hours will be 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., staying open later Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. New innovations will be the large library dining room available for groups of up to 60 diners, catering to everything from wakes to weddings. For the rst time, they are incorporating a European inuenced patio with dining under umbrellas within decorative wrought iron fencing. It will be designed to be a typical garden-style patio with landscaped oral inuence as found throughout Europe. They only anticipate hiring an additional 10 people because they have little turnover; one employee has been with the pub since it opened. It was seven years ago when Kelly with her father, John Oliver, and mother acquired the business. Unfortunately ve years ago, John, well-known for assisting in organizing Special Olympics fundraisers, passed away. Kelly has continued working with the boat races for 25 years and helping organize the Barbecue Bash for the past ve years. Kathy retires from the school system in January and is increasing her role at the new location in a management role. We are moving because the existing 30-year-old building has outlived our ability to make the necessary changes, Kelly said. We are not able to close down for a rebuild but can achieve our intentions in a new build. I thank Brooke Milton-Grundvig of Merritt Realty Corporation and Carol Smiddy of Primerica for their support in this acquisition. Internal and external modeling of the new location will begin in September, and it is anticipated the new location will open late November or early December.New, larger location for British Open PubBy ROGER BUTTONSPECIAL TO THE SUN PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONLater this year, the popular British Open Pub is moving, expanding and introducing new features, including its new European garden patio dining atmosphere.

The Sun /Thursday, August 7, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 9 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. SARASOTA COUNTY During the public comment portion of the last two Sarasota County School Board meetings the most recent Tuesday a man has asked board members to change the Venice High School mascot. Sal Serbin, executive director of the American Indian Movement Florida chapter, asked Tuesday night that School Board members place a discussion to change the Venice High School mascot on a future meeting agenda, saying the Venice Indian reects badly on the district. This is not a politically correct issue, he said, but rather an issue of whether the School Board will take a stand against racism. What message will it send to American Indian children who attend or will attend this school? Holding up a sign that read I am a man, Serbin said the current mascot that of a war-painted Native American wearing a feathered headdress and the schools retention of it continues to demean, degrade, insult and be racist. I am not the offensive mascot Sarasota County has representing the American Indian, he said. Following Serbin, Joelene Morris, a 2002 graduate of Venice High, spoke in defense of the mascot. Im not here to put Mr. Serbin down, she said, adding she created a petition on Aug. 1 to keep the Indian as VHSs mascot. For over 60 years, (Venice High School) has maintained the Indian as its mascot, a symbol we hold so dear. She said there has never been anything derogatory in using the Indian as the school mascot, and that instead of being demeaning, the Venice Indian stands in honor of such a proud and cultured people. We revere the Indian and the honor, pride, excellence, spirituality and moral conduct the American Indian displayed. As of Wednesday evening, the petition Morris launched on change. org had garnered 1,577 signatures, 923 short of a 2,500-signature goal. Board member Caroline Zucker said Wednesday she wasnt sure whether the board would discuss the issue at a future meeting, but added that she knows the topic isnt on any August meeting agendas. She said she hopes the issue works itself out. Theres pros and cons on both sides. We got an awful lot of letters in support of keeping the name, said Zucker. As I listened to (Serbin), I can understand where hes coming from, but then at the same time (the mascot) is not meant as a slight. (Supporters of the mascot) dont look at it in a negative light, they look at it in a positive light. While she understands that Serbin is passionate about his beliefs, she also didnt appreciate being accused of racism. I very truthfully want to see it play itself out without having to take a side, Zucker said. On her personal Facebook page, board member Bridget Ziegler wrote several posts in favor of keeping the Indian. While I believe that we must always listen and consider feedback from every member of the community, we also need to keep an eye on political correctness going too far, she wrote. Its important to consider what the Indians mascot means to the community. Most see it as a positive symbol of honor and pride, and their opinions shouldnt be disregarded. Board Chairwoman Jane Goodwin said the board doesnt respond during public comment and hasnt met in workshop since late June and, until they do, cannot discuss any possible action because it would violate the Government in the Sunshine Law. She also believes the community needs to weigh in. I know there are many people in the community who think it shouldnt be changed. Its a very hot topic, she said. But were nowhere near making a decision. Email: annek@sun-herald.comMan requests Venice mascot changeBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITERON CHANGE.ORGComments in support of the Venice Indian on the change.org petition came from VHS alumni from around the region and the country: (I) grew up wanting to be an Indian football player for VHS and (changing the mascot) would ruin over 50 years of tradition, pride and loyalty to the Indian mascot, wrote Donald Houghtaling, now of Morristown, N.J. Just to let you all know, we never even walked on the Indian, that is how much respect we have for our logo/ mascot! Paul Youngberg, now a Sanford, Fla., resident, wrote in support of keeping the mascot Because I spent my whole school life as a Venice Indian and am proud of it. Get over this craziness, I am also a Native American Indian, and proud of it. Proud to be a Venice Indian 39 years post-graduation, wrote Medea Isphording, who now hails from Hillsborough, Calif. (I am) proud to honor our Florida natives with this mascot. There are so many real and pressing issues that the School Board should address. Perhaps they should tend to their student-oriented work. Sharon Steele from Austin, Texas said, The Indian has always represented a brave and proud heritage, one to inspire strength under the most difficult situations. Any member of Native American heritage visiting our Venice High School would feel the immense pride we wear and support this symbol of our school. Compiled by Anne Klockenkemper SARASOTA COUNTY As the new school year begins Aug. 18, children at some Sarasota County schools will be able to have a free breakfast every day when they come to school. The Sarasota County School Board unanimously approved a new universal free breakfast policy at its Tuesday evening meeting without discussion. The program will provide free breakfast to schools with 80 percent or more of students on free and reduced lunch. According to Beverly Girard, director of the school districts Food and Nutrition Services, at the end of the 2013-2014 school year, 52.18 percent of district students were on free and reduced lunch. Ten schools will initially benet from the pilot program Alta Vista, Emma E. Booker, Gocio, Tuttle, Wilkinson, Booker Middle, Triad North and South, and Sarasota School for Innovative Studies and SSIS Middle. Every child at those schools, not just those registered for free and reduced lunch, would be eligible. Girard said there is only a small cost for the program, and it removes a stigma from kids who come to school hungry. She has also said that North Ports Glenallen Elementary would be one of the next schools to benet from the program she said Wednesday she believes it will be soon as the school is just under the 80 percent mark. Any school, be it elementary, middle or high school, is eligible for the program once it has 80 percent of its students on free and reduced lunch. Also during the meeting, board members unanimously via the consent agenda approved the renewal of a lease agreement between the district and the city of North Port for ofce space at the Family Service Center, 6919 Outreach Way. According to background materials provided by the district, the ofce space is used about 32 hours each week. (Sarasota County Technical Institute) has been using part of the facility since 2008 for adult general education, district spokesman Scott Ferguson said. The agreement pertains to 514 square-feet of furnished ofce space for a term beginning Oct. 1 and ending Sept. 30, 2015. The district pays $7,196 per year, or $599.67 per month. A $470,000 grant from the Education Foundation that will provide professional development to district math and science middle school teachers was also approved.

Bad news helps stock marketEditors note: We will be accepting letters related to the Aug. 26 primary election until 5 p.m. Aug. 19. Editor: I support Lee Swift for School Board of Charlotte County, District 1. Public education is faced with many challenges nationally and locally. It is a critical component of a successful de mocracy. While there appears to be agreement that our system of public education needs change, the specics of that change are caught up in conicting positions and politics. Charlotte County School Board must work within changing federal and state laws, mandates and standards while maintaining the focus on increased student achievement. Lee Swift brings exemplary experience, knowledge and dedication to that challenge. Lee Swift has a remarkable record of service to Charlotte Editor: The war in Israel was started by Hamas kidnapping three Israeli teenagers and murder ing them. Hamas has been designated a terrorist organization by the U.S., Europe and the UN. Not much has been said by the media about this crime, but Israel has struck in response to this barbaric act. While some countries, media and others bemoan the casualties in this war, they should remember Hamas started it. They should remember Palestinians rejoicing, and dancing in the streets the Editor: Taxpayers of Charlotte County, are you listening to what is being asked of you? Your county commissioners and a select group of businesses that have a vested interest are asking you for $108 million of your hard-earned money over the next six years to fund $348 million in various needed projects. So where do you suppose the remaining $240 million shortfall will come from? Right from your hip pocket, thats where. Editor: When you have a good experience with a tradesman, I think it is tting to let them know how much you appreciate the good job they did. Last month, we had our pool cage re-screened by Craig of Reliable Screen Protection. From the time he did our quote until he was nished, he was very professional, working hard until he nished, and cleaned up so well you would never know he was here. The nished job was excellent. Thank you for a job well done.Marlene Erhardt Port CharlotteEditor: I am not a big supporter of the Venice Airport, although it is nice to know that its concrete runways are there in an emergency. But I see and hear so many people attacking the airport with no knowledge of what theyre talking about. The latest example is the sad happening on Caspersen Beach last week. Yes, the beach is near the airport, but the airport had nothing to do with the plane or the accident except that some people see the incident as a means of attacking the airport. The latest example was a letter to your paper on Sunday.Thomas D. Swepston EnglewoodEditor: It is frustrating that Republicans are being painted as heartless over the issue of immigration. Speaking as a conservative Republican, I have no problem with a healthy discussion on reforms, but I havent forgotten that we have been fooled before with promises that we would not have to face the problem again if we gave in to Democrats compromises. Well, here we are. And this time the problems are bigger and more dire because the can was kicked down the road and now thousands of children are involved. Not once have Democrats acknowledge the need to secure the borders. Not once have Democrats accepted the idea that we have laws that are being broken. Not once have Democrats offered solutions that dont involve effectively granting amnesty and spending billions of dollars. The American people want our country secured. After that we can discuss how to deal with the illegals who are here. There has to be limits. We cannot absorb innite numbers. It isnt scally possible. It isnt good for national security. And it isnt good policy. Republicans are not the bad guys. They are making the tough choices. We need ti speak out and support securing the borders rst, then tackling the immigration issues. Legal, controlled immigration is good for America. Uncontrolled immigration will spell the end of our country as we know it.Jennie Veary EnglewoodEditor: I am a North Port business owner and I have had the pleasure of knowing Jacqueline Moore. I am delighted that she has chosen to run for commissioner. Jacqueline is a small business owner also and understands the needs of our business community. She has the drive to get things done. I know she has also worked in corporate business making hard decisions. She is a certied consultant with the Gulf Coast Community Foundation and has worked with public and private boards to improve processes and make better decisions. Jacqueline will bring a fresh perspective to the commission. Please vote for Jacqueline Moore.Joyce Klingle North PortEditor: Governor Scott. Did he and his company rip off Medicare for billions of dollars and did he walk away with $300 million? Are he and his cronies ripping off the state of Florida and its citizens under the guise of making improvements to Citizens Insurance, the environment, the Everglades, Medicare and Medicaid? Do politicians lie? Maybe.Edward G. Threm Port CharloteEditor: Okay, listen up. The stock market only does well when other areas are bad. Because if other areas are bad, interest rates stay low, so the best way to make money is in the stock market, which is basically a legal casino for investors. So on Thursday, July 31, 2014, there was too much good news that might have prompted the Fed to raise interest rates. Higher interest rates cause investors to leave stocks and go into interest generating investments. The market dropped over 300 points because of people selling to move their money into cash. Are we good so far? Now on Aug. 1, 2014, the job numbers came out. They showed weak job creation and an uptick in the unemploy ment rate. The stock market immediately stabilized. Coincidence? You decide.Wayne A. White EnglewoodWhy newspapers give their opinion on candidatesSomeone asked why the Sun gives recommendations on political candidates. We can liken our answer to Ramen noodles. We believe in this age of instant communication and social media it is even more important than ever that newspapers continue to offer their analysis of local races. A very intelligent person shared a Facebook post with us, supposedly from the Health Digest and it read: Food for thought: Instant noodles contain wax coating which is also used in styrofoam containers. That is why instant noodles dont stick to each other when cooking. This can cause cancer. Sounds scary, huh? Before you opt to see a doctor about all of the wax you may have ingested, you should know there is no wax in the noodles or the containers they come in. The substance that helps the noodles stay separated is palm oil, but no cancer-causing wax. The myth is easily debunked with a little research. Being curious and asking questions is what newspaper people do. So instead of throwing out all of the noodles in our cupboards, we did research. The campaign season is a lot like Facebook and the Internet. Voters are exposed to a lot of information, usually coming from the candidates, their supporters and their opponents. The Internet is full of misinfor mation and anonymous comments below of stories. We see slogans on signs, we look at ads on television and the newspaper and we receive shiny postcards in the mail telling us that Candidate X is a great guy and Candidate Y is going to ruin everything if we elect that person. Thats why a group, which we call the editorial board, asks each candidate questions about some of their statements, and gives them an opportunity to elaborate on their answers. Hopefully we come away with a clearer picture of who they are and what they believe. Our reporters also make time to interview candidates and write proles that will appear in the daily newspaper and in a special section dedicated to informing voters. That special section will publish Aug. 15. Following our interview, the editorial board members craft an opinion piece stating which candidate it would recommend. We dont make these recommendations because we think we are smarter than our readers. We do so because our role as a news and opinion source affords us access to the candidates that many of our readers cant get. So we share the information we are able to get in two ways through our reporters news stories or proles of the candidates and our editorial boards analysis of the race. When newspapers started doing these things more than a hundred years ago they did so in an age when readers could not nd enough information and analysis about candidates. Now that there is more information about politics than any one person can process, the role of the newspaper in politics is even more important. We can help you sift through the barrage of information and make more informed decisions. If you agree with our opinion ne, if not, thats ne, too. If we do our jobs right, you will have enough facts about a candidate and an opinion that you can noodle over before you make your own decision. day of 9/11. We should also remember years of terrorist acts, thousands of rockets red on civilian areas of Israel. And lastly, lets not forget the American soldiers ambushed and killed in Iraq by freedom ghters, who were mainly Palestinians. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East, and deserves our support when ghting terrorists.Jenny Ellison Bonstra Punta GordaCounty: proven experience on the school board, as well as more than 20 years working with community organizations like Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center, Crossroads Wilderness and Punta Gorda Kiwanis, often elected to leadership positions. In addition to his local service, Lee has represented Charlotte County in the Florida School Boards Association. He was elected by his peers to several ofces in the organization, including president. I served on the School Board with Lee for over a decade. He is dedicated, willing to listen to all perspectives, knowledgeable and committed to our students and our community. He has the skills needed to address the challenges. Please do your homework; study the qualications of each candidate. I believe your conclusion will be to support Lee Swift for School Board of Charlotte County.Sue Sifrit Port CharlotteWeve been threatened with higher property taxes and increased impact fees if this tax isnt extended. Please, commissioners, the nancial ruin with which you have burdened us gives you no choice but to increase taxes with or without the 16 percent sales tax extension. You know it and we know it. The time to S.W.I.T.C.H. is now! Stop With Increasing Taxes Clean House. There is no place in our society for career politicians and the place to start cleaning house is in our own backyard.

The Sun /Thursday, August 7, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINT Its hard to believe but more Americans are being erroneously killed off by the government than actually die. Of the approximately 2.8 million deaths reported to the Social Security Administration each year, about 14,000 or one in every 200 deaths are incorrectly entered into its Death Master File of more than 87 million deceased Americans. That averages out to approximately 38 lifealtering mistakes a day. How do I know? I was one of its recent mistakes. On March 30, my wife, Diane passed away. Unfortunately the government decided that we had both passed away on the same date and told all their departmental minions the sad news. Retirement pay was discontinued and the erroneous payments for March, April and May were demanded returned from my bank account. The bank complied. What happened next was a gallant effort by my local bank (Wells Fargo) to convince the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) I was alive and that a mistake had been made. Over a six-week period, my bank contacted DFAS on four separate occasions. Each time I was put on the line to answer questions such as, mothers maiden name, my rst school, or similar questions only I would know. Wells Fargo went the extra mile and faxed them a notarized document attesting to my presence and apparent good health. Although the government nally agreed that I was not dead, for six weeks there was no return of the $15,000 they deducted from my account or any indication they would continue my retirement pay. In passing I might mention the laborious wait time on all calls to DFAS, the VA and the Social Security Administration. In each case to assure them the rumor of my death was premature. Finally, we were rewarded for time spent on hold with the news that the government graciously agreed to reinstate my retirement, Social Security and VA compensation starting Aug. 1. However, the return of the money they removed from my savings account required the approval of a committee since the amount was so large. Im still waiting. I mention this administrative misadventure because it happened to me, and could happen to someone who may be dependent on a retirement check to pay the bills. Just imagine if the money they so cavalierly removed from my account was intended to cover a number of written checks? If they all bounced, would the government pay the penalty? Certainly not. Government never makes mistakes, never apologizes and seldom repairs the damage it inicts on unsuspecting minions. What then? Who do we complain to? Our congressman? Ill tell you what I did. I relied on a few determined bank managers at Wells Fargo. They kept at it until the problem was solved, and I greatly appreciate their efforts. Tom DAndrea, USMC (Ret) is a Punta Gorda resident and an occasional contributor to the Sun.The government says Im dead Guest ColumnistTom DAndrea On the campaign trail, Gov. Rick Scott launched his latest themed tour. This one is pleasantly named Lets Keep Florida Beautiful. What a lovely thought! His initiative includes: $50 million a year for alternative water-supply projects. $50 million a year for natural springs restoration. $150 million a year for Florida Forever. That sounds great. Those of us who have worked hard to preserve our natural resources, restore our degraded water bodies, develop alternative water supplies and provide and promote nature-based recreation should be ecstatic, right? Well, not so much. Under current law, funding for an alternative water supply and other restoration projects is supposed to be $100 million a year and Florida Forever, the wildly popular land acquisition program, is to receive $300 million yearly to be fully funded, double the amount Scott is proposing. And while his proposal is less than what is expected, its more than what he has provided during his four years as governor. Lets take a look at the history of Florida Forever funding as an example. Under Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Forever was fully funded at $300 million in each of the budgets from 2000 to 2007, totaling $2.1 billion over seven years. Gov. Charlie Crist fully funded Florida Forever the rst two years of his term and cut funding to zero and $19 million the next two years when the state budget itself was drastically cut. Crists total was $619 million over four years. Even though Gov. Scott took ofce during the economic recovery, there was zero funding for Florida Forever in his rst two years and, while the next two years brought the largest budgets in state history, Florida Forever received minimal cash of $10 million and $17 million. Scotts cash total was $27 million over his four years. Scott also undertook an ill-fated plan to identify and sell unnecessary conservation lands in state ownership to fund better lands for purchase. The list was controversial, no lands were sold and the hare-brained idea was abandoned. There were many other questionable decisions and actions by Gov. Scott that riled environmental advocates. They included hiring a shipyard executive to head the Department of Environmental Protection; ring science-based DEP employees for not being lax enough on permitting; replacing experienced water management district directors with more developer-friendly ones; cutting WMD revenues and decimating their staffs; and abolishing the states Department of Community Affairs, the agency responsible for comprehensive planning based on available resources such as water. The list goes on. Scott also showed his lack of environmental curiosity by denying climate change even though Florida is particularly vulnerable to sea-level rise. To address questions, Scott simply repeats the non-answer, Im not a scientist. In response to his declaration of scientic ignorance, a group of scientists from various disciplines generously offered their services to educate him. First he declined their invitation, then he agreed to have his staff meet with them. After Crist met with one of them, Scott stated that he, too, would personally meet with them. Weeks later, no such meeting has taken place. The governor has proudly touted his record of cutting funding for environmental programs and regulations that were in place to protect the environment. This greatly pleased his tea party base. Isnt Scott afraid this latest election-year conversion will alienate the base? In the most bizarre event of the tour, a little-known Democratic Miami city commissioner claimed Scotts environmental record rivaled Teddy Roosevelts. While Teddy is turning in his grave, Im certain his stellar environmental record remains unmatched. So why his newfound love of the environment? It could be because a day earlier, billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer hinted at spending $10 million or more in the governors race to defeat Scott a boon to Crist. Steyers interest is in climate change, an issue Scott has neglectfully dismissed. Or it may be a preemptive strike against Amendment 1; the popular citizens initiative that restores environmental funding with no new taxes is on course to pass over whelmingly in November. It should provide approximately $10 billion over the next 20 years. Scotts iffy promise is a fraction of that. Or it might be in response to the recent negative press reports of Scotts hunting trip to the King Ranch in Texas, cour tesy of U.S. Sugar. A month later he appointed one of its executives to the powerful South Florida Water Management District Board that oversees Everglades restoration. No conict of interest there! Environmentalists are smart to welcome Scotts comments and may hope that he has seen the light. After all, most previous governors Bob Graham, Bob Martinez, Lawton Chiles, Bush and Crist have been strong supporters of protecting Floridas beautiful but fragile environment. Perhaps we should take it on faith that Gov. Scott really has embraced his inner green just three months out from a tight reelection. While Id like to believe he is sincere, based on his actions over the past four years, color me skeptical. Paula Dockery is a syndicated columnist who served in the Florida Legislature for 16 years as a Republican from Lakeland. Readers may reach her at PBDockery@gmail.com.On environment, Scotts no Teddy Roosevelt Paula Dockery One in ve? Yeah, right. Sounds way too high. Thats a common reaction to the oft-cited statistic about the share of women who experience an attempted or completed sexual assault during college. The number cant possibly be right, the Doubting Thomases (or, less frequently, Doubting Thomasinas) argue. Its based on a small sample of schools, after all, and must not be representative of the full melange of colleges out there. How about this, then? Lets survey every campus and nd out. So proposes a bipartisan bill introduced by eight senators last week. The Campus Accountability and Safety Act would, among other things, create new transparency standards for U.S. colleges, requiring them to conduct anonymous, standardized, representative surveys about student experiences with sexual violence. The survey language and platform would be developed by the federal government, and results would be published in a centralized, user-friendly database alongside other gures schools already report, such as tuition and retention rates, in exchange for participating in the federal student nancial aid program. This is a brilliant idea, if not a new one. For years, victims advocates have been recommending that schools pull their heads out of the sand and start measuring the true extent of the epidemic of sexual violence on their campuses. Colleges, alas, have been less keen on the idea. In the spring, a White House task force presented a similar proposal for such climate surveys that was ercely opposed by several higher education industry groups. State legislators in Maryland also considered a survey mandate, but the states schools (including one under federal investigation for allegedly mishandling an assault complaint) helped kill the bill. Colleges claim that administering such surveys is too onerous, and that the Clery Act already requires them to publish data on campus crime. But ofcial crime numbers can be misleading, partly because the vast majority of sexual crimes go unreported. Victims feel ashamed, dont know whom to contact or fear they will face skepticism or harassment if they come forward. Schools also have a lot of discretion about what sort of crime statistics they publish, making apples-to-apples comparisons among schools difcult. Most troubling, because there is so much incredulity about the prevalence of sexual assault, schools face perverse incentives to underreport incidents for fear of being seen as unusually dangerous even when their crime rates are merely average. Its no wonder, then, that in response to a recent survey of 440 colleges commissioned by Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., 41 percent reported not having conducted a single investigation into sexual violence in the previous ve years. These schools are probably proud that so few incidents appear worth investigating but a low investigation rate is probably a sign not that campuses are crimefree but that victims arent seeking help. Or, worse, that administrators are not taking action when victims come forward. A few brave schools voluntarily survey students about their experiences with rape, sexual assault and harassment. The University of New Hampshire, for example, has been conducting surveys for more than 25 years, and handfuls of other institutions have followed suit (some as a result of federal investigations into whether they have mishandled sex crimes in the past). Many of the schools that do conduct surveys dont publish the results, though, likely out of fear of negative publicity. My own alma mater, Princeton, surveyed students in 2008, but the ndings were not made public until someone leaked them to the school newspaper ve years later. Asked why the results werent previously published, an administrator told the Daily Princetonian, A story that Princetons rates of students who have been assaulted is on line with national averages is really not a story, but I mean in this news environment, people would make a big deal about it. This is exactly why we need to put every school on an equal footing, with a standardized, comparable measure of sexual violence rates. Based on survey data already available, most likely we wouldnt see much variation in victimization rates from campus to campus, says Nancy Chi Cantalupo, a researcher with the Georgetown University Law Center who has advocated for climate surveys. But a universal survey requirement would force schools to publicly acknowledge the extent of sexual violence on their campuses. Then they could stop worrying about embarrassment that might result from more accurate measurement of crime rates and focus instead on better ways to prevent and respond to the crimes themselves.

Our Town Page 12 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, August 7, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS SARASOTA COUNTY Underwater robots Waldo from Mote Marine Laboratory and Bass from University of South Florida have been monitoring offshore Florida red tide and surrounding ocean conditions since being deployed Friday. It appears Sarasota and Manatee County Gulf coasts will be spared from this massive red-tide outbreak. The bloom is reported to be 80 miles long and 50 miles wide, reaching from Dixie County to southern Pasco County, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission statewide update. During the past few days, Waldo reported at 40 miles from the Pasco/ Hernando border, red tide was detected at the surface and to depths of about 82 feet in areas where it was indicated by satellites. At the outer edge of the bloom, elevated chlorophyll associated with the red tide was present in waters as deep as 131 feet, according to Bass data. Bloom water is stratied (layered) with denser, cooler water below and lighter, warmer water on top. Waldo will complete his mission this week or early next, while Bass will nish in two to three weeks. The robot data is feeding into short-term forecasts of the red tide bloom developed by the Collaboration for Prediction of Red Tides, a partnership effort between the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and USF. The latest three-day forecasts from USF and FWC, informed in part by the Mote-USF robot missions, show surface water in the bloom region is expected to move slightly south, but move little overall. The deepwater in the bloom region is expected to move southeast slowly. These south and southeast movements could bring the bloom close to southwest Floridas coast in the coming weeks. However, there are many variables. For instance, large weather systems passing through can break up blooms. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, no respiratory irritation is expected at Southwest Florida beaches through Monday. FWC, Mote and USF scientists are collecting many kinds of data about the bloom during an FWC-led research cruise aboard the R/V Bellows, which is expected to wrap up Wednesday. The goal is to construct a 3-D picture of the red tide by measuring concentrations of red tide algae in surface and deep waters offshore of Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando counties. Mote scientists on board are using state-of-the-art technology including a Mote-developed red tide detector called an optical phytoplankton discriminator, nicknamed BreveBuster to learn more about the red tide algae Karenia brevis and its relationship to the dynamic community of other microscopic algae found in Gulf waters. The Mote researchers are studying phytoplankton pigments to study other species in addition to K. brevis. FWC is dening the nutrients present, and studying DNA and the phytoplankton community. USF scientists are studying optical properties of the bloom: ways that algae reect the light. This is important for ground-truthing satellite images. Mote also sampled waters between Sarasota and the blooms southern edge, nding many sites lacked red tide or only had background concentrations. However, sampling conrmed low and very low concentrations of red tide algae about 33 miles west of Caladesi Island in Pinellas County. Its important to note sampling is tricky: Red tide blooms can be very patchy, and areas with few red tide cells can be close to areas with lots of cells, according to a Mote press release. The cells can even swim and clump together. That means scientists must take multiple samples to get the best possible understanding of bloom intensity.Massive red tide outbreak likely to miss areaPROVIDED BY THE BRADENTON HERALD RUBY TUESDAY GIVEBACK EVENTSRuby Tuesday restaurant in the Port Charlotte Town Center mall offers a Community GiveBack Program for area nonprofits, churches, schools and others.

Europes Rosetta probe will orbit and study the giant lump of dust and ice as it hurtles toward the sun and, if all goes according to plan, drop a lander onto the comet in the coming months. Rosetta turned up as planned for its rendezvous with comet 67P/ Churyumov-Gerasimenko somewhere between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. The incredible trip, launched on March 2, 2004, marks a milestone in mankinds effort to understand the mysterious shooting stars that periodically ash past Earth, and which have often been viewed with fear and trepidation. While the moon, Mars and even asteroids have been visited, no spacecraft has yet gotten so close to a comet. Having achieved this feat, Rosetta will go one step further and drop a lander on 67Ps icy surface a maneuver planned for November.

But as we started reading stories about the people we were going to go serve, it all started to jell for them.

Israel wants the Islamic militant Hamas to disarm, or at least ensure it cannot re-arm, before consider ing the groups demand that the territorys borders be opened. Israel and Egypt imposed a closure after the Hamas takeover of Gaza in 2007, although Egypt allows individuals to cross intermittently. The two sides have reviewed what they consider issues of concern, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri said at a news conference, describing the matter as complicated and not easy.Aussie commuters tip train car to help trapped manSYDNEY (AP) Dozens of people helped rescue a fellow commuter in Australia by pushing against a train car to free the man whose leg slipped between the platform and the train. Closed-circuit footage released by the Western Australia State Public Transport Authority showed the man lost his footing while boarding the train at a station in the city of Perth on Wednesday. A passenger alerted railway staff who stopped the train from leaving, local media said. When railway workers realized the man couldnt move, they called on other passengers to help. The footage showed dozens of people rushing to help tilt the car to free the man, who fell at least thigh deep into the platform gap.Japan observes atom bomb anniversaryTokyo (dpa) Japan marked the 69th anniver sary of the U.S. atomic bomb attack on the western city of Hiroshima on Wednesday, as tens of thousands of people attended an annual ceremony.

The explosion killed tens of thousands of residents in seconds, and by the end of the year, some 140,000 in total had died.Obama, African leaders talk securityWASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama and dozens of African leaders opened talks Wednesday on two key issues that threaten to disrupt economic progress on the continent: security and government corruption. The discussions capped an unprecedented three-day gathering of African leaders in Washington. Much of the conference has centered on boosting U.S. financial ties with Africa, a continent that is home to six of the worlds 10 fastest-growing economies and a rapidly expanding middle class. | NATIONWoman stows away on airlinerSAN FRANCISCO (AP) A woman who took a Southwest Airlines ight from San Jose to Los Angeles without a ticket tried at least three times that day to breach airport security before she managed to board the plane, federal law enforcement ofcials said Wednesday. It was the San Jose airports second security breach in recent months, after a teenage Somali immigrant stowed away in the wheel well of an April ight from there to Hawaii. Marilyn Jean Hartman bypassed an agent who was screening boarding passes Monday at Mineta San Jose International Airport by sneaking through with a family, said the law enforce ment ofcials, who would speak only on condition of anonymity because the security breach is being investigated.Band of America nears $16-$17B settlement with USWASHINGTON (AP) Bank of America is nearing a $16 billion to $17 billion settlement to resolve an investigation into its role in the sale of mortgage-backed securities before the 2008 nancial crisis, a person directly familiar with the matter said Wednesday. The deal with the bank, which must still be nalized, would be the largest Justice Department settlement by far arising from the economic meltdown in which millions of Americans lost their homes to foreclosure. It would follow earlier multibillion-dollar agreements reached in the last year with Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase & Co. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not yet been announced, cautioned that some details still needed to be worked out and that it was possible the agreement could fall apart.Hawaii braces for two hurricanesHONOLULU (AP) Weather ofcials say a hurricane approaching Hawaii wont weaken into a tropical storm before passing over the islands as they had predicted. Central Pacic Hurricane Center forecasters now say Hurricane Iselle appears to have strengthened and will maintain its speed as it passes the Big Island Thursday night. Hurricane Julio, meanwhile, has followed closely behind and is expected to pass the islands this weekend. Gov.

WASHINGTON (AP) Congress has checked out, and the American people have noticed. Three-quarters of Americans doubt the federal government will address the important problems facing the country this year, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. All told, only 28 per cent of Americans think the nation is heading in the right direction, the lowest level in August of an election year since 2008. Its about on par with 2006, when Democrats took control of the U.S. House amid a backlash to the Iraq war. This time around, its not clear whether either party will benet from the disaffection. One-third say they hope the Republicans take control of Congress outright this fall which the GOP can accomplish with a net gain of six seats in the U.S. Senate while holding the U.S. House. The same share want to see Democrats lead Congress a far less likely possibility. The nal third? They say it just doesnt matter who takes control of Congress. Overall, just 13 percent of Americans approve of the way Congress overall is handling its job. There are some signs in the new poll that Republicans have gained ground as the height of the campaign approaches. In May, they trailed Democrats a bit on who ought to control Congress. Partisans are about equally likely to say theyd like to see their own in charge of Congress after November 4, with about three-quar ters in each party saying they hope their side winds up in control. Democrats are a bit less apt to say they want their own party to win than they were in May, 74 percent in the new poll compared with 80 percent then. And the GOP now holds narrow advantages over Democrats on handling an array of top issues, including the economy, immigration and the federal budget. But neither party is trusted much to manage the federal government, with 27 percent having faith in the GOP to 24 percent in Democrats. More people, 31 percent, say they trust neither party to run the federal government. Fewer people have condence in the federal governments ability to make progress on the important problems and issues facing the country in 2014 than at the start of the year, with 74 percent saying they have little or no condence. Thats a slight change from the 70 percent who said so in a December AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey. That shift in condence stems from a small drop-off among Democrats. While 56 percent lacked condence in December, 62 percent say the same now.Poll: Most voters want new leaders AP PHOTOThis June 9 photo shows the U.S. Capitol building as seen from the Cannon House Oce Building in Washington.

(Washington Post) Researchers have long contended that the epicenter of global warming is also farthest from the reach of humanity. Its in the barren landscapes of the frozen North, where redcheeked children wear fur, the sun barely rises in the winter and temperatures can plunge dozens of degrees below zero. Such a place is the Yamal Peninsula in Siberia, translated as the ends of the Earth, a desolate spit of land where a group called the Nenets live. By now, youve heard of the crater on the Yamal Peninsula. Its the one that suddenly appeared, yawning nearly 200 feet in diameter, and made several rounds in the global viral media machine. The adjectives most often used to describe it: giant, mysterious, curious. Scientists were subsequently baffled. Locals were mystified. There were whispers that aliens were responsible. Nearby residents peddled theories of bright flashes and celestial bodies. Theres now a substantiated theory about what created the crater. And the news isnt so good. It may be methane gas, released by the thawing of frozen ground. According to a recent Nature article, air near the bottom of the crater contained unusually high concentrations of methane up to 9.6 percent in tests conducted at the site on July 16, says Andrei Plekhanov, an archaeologist at the Scientific Centre of Arctic Studies in Salekhard, Russia. Plekhanov, who led an expedition to the crater, says that air normally contains just 0.000179 percent methane. The scientist said the methane release may be related to Yamals unusually hot summers in 2012 and 2013, which were warmer by an average of 5 degrees Celsius. As temperatures rose, the researchers suggest, permafrost thawed and collapsed, releasing methane that had been trapped in the icy ground, the report stated. Plekhanov explained to Nature that the conclusion is preliminary. He would like to study how much methane is contained in the air trapped inside the craters walls. Such a task, however, could be difcult. Its rims are slowly melting and falling into the crater, the researcher told the science publication. You can hear the ground falling, you can hear the water running; its rather spooky. Gas pressure increased until it was high enough to push away the overlay ing layers in a powerful injection, forming the crater, explained geochemist Hans-Wolfgang Hubberten of Germanys Alfred Wegener Institute, adding that hes never seen anything like the crater. Some scientists contend the thawing of such terrain, rife with centuries of carbon, would release incredible amounts of methane gas and affect global temperatures. Pound for pound, the comparative impact of methane gas on climate change is over 20 times greater than carbon dioxide over a 100-year period, reported the Environmental Protection Agency. Researchers with Stockholm Universitys Department of Applied Environmental Science recently witnessed methane releases in the East Siberian Arctic Ocean. They found that elevated methane levels were about ten times higher than in background seawater, wrote scientist Orjan Gustafsson on his blog last week. He added: This was somewhat of a surprise . This is information that is crucial if we are to be able to provide scientic estimations of how these methane releases may develop in the future. NASA also found the situation to be precar ious. The fragile and rapidly changing Arctic region is home to large reservoirs of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, scientists wrote in 2012. Its vulnerable to being released into the atmosphere, where it can add to global warming. Now, as two additional craters have also recently been discovered in Siberia, researchers worry the craters may portend changes to local Siberian life. Two have appeared close to a large gas eld. If a releasehappens at the Bovanenkovskoye gas eld that is only 30 kilometers away, it could lead to an accident, and the same if it happens in a village, Russian scientist Plekhanov told Nature.Siberian crater mystery not good news LAS VEGAS (AP) The hackers are a tight knit group, 10 or 11. They live in a Russian town, and have real jobs. But in their down time, the cybercriminals have spent the past seven months gathering a hoard of personal data, stealing 1.2 billion user names and passwords in a series of Internet heists affecting 420,000 websites, according to Alex Holden, Chief Information Security Officer for Hold Security, whose firm uncovered the breach. The Russian hackers had been collecting databases of personal information for years, but Holden told The Associated Press Wednesday that in April the group began deploying a new online attack technique that quickly shot from computer system to computer system as unwitting infected users visited random websites. Their cache of stolen goods grew quite quickly, said Holden, who has not revealed details about the websites that were breached or the names of other victims. A native of Kiev who now lives in Milwaukee, Holden has conducted research that contributed to other exposures of major hacks, including a breach at Adobe that exposed tens of millions of customer records. He said he had been tracking the Russian criminals for seven months, but only was able to begin reviewing their massive cache of databases during the past few weeks. He timed his announcement to coincide with the annual Black Hat USA cyber security conference this week in Las Vegas, where it created quite a buzz. Brian Krebs, who investigates online cybercrime and blogs about it, said his phone and email were inundated while he was at the conference Wednesday with people asking about Holdens announcement. Alex isnt keen on disclosing his methods, but I have seen his research and data firsthand and can say its definitely for real, said Krebs. Without spilling his secrets or methods, it is clear that he has a first-hand view on the day-to-day activities of some very active organized cybercrime networks and actors. More than a day after his discovery was revealed in a New York Times report, Holden said he had not heard from any law enforcement agencies. He said he hopes investigators do contact him and added that his firm would be happy to cooperate. Chase Cunningham, lead threat intelligence agent for cloud security company Firehost, spent years tracking Russian crime syndicates with the FBI and the NSA. At Black Hat on Wednesday, he said Hold Security has uncovered one of the largest caches of data ever seen. To date, Hold Security says it has only seen the Russian hackers use the personal data to spam social media, for example, hijacking a Twitter account and posting a weight loss ad. And Holden said hes only seen pay ments ranging from $200 to $1,500 although hes unsure if thats per person or for the entire group for creating that spam. Cunningham said he expects the Russian criminals will do much more with their illicit collection, which could prove lucrative. They can make money hand over fist with this, he said.Russian hackers nab 1.2B passwords I jr---rlilt

The Sun /Thursday, August 7, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 WORLD NEWS | WORLDCar bombs kill 51 in Baghdad Shiite neighborhoodsBAGHDAD (AP) A string of car bombs tore through busy shopping streets in several Baghdad neighborhoods on Wednesday night killing 51 people as the army announced that one of its airstrikes had killed 60 militants in the northern city of Mosul. Baghdad police said the first attack was a pair of car bombs that exploded in the densely populated Shiite neighborhood of Sadr City, killing 31 people, followed by another bomb in the nearby area of Ur that claimed another 11 lives. Nine more people were killed in the southeast of the city shortly afterward by two more car bombs.Officials: US drone kills 7 militants in PakistanISLAMABAD (AP) Two Pakistani intelligence officials say a U.S. drone fired two missiles at a sprawling compound in a northwestern tribal region, killing seven militants. The officials say the strike took place on Wednesday in Datta Khel, a town in North Waziristan where the Pakistani army has been carrying out a major offensive against local and foreign militants. The identity of the slain men was not immediately known. The intelligence officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the media.Russia bans some foods from US, EUMOSCOW (Washington Post) Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday ordered oneyear limitations on food and agricultural imports from countries that have issued sanctions against Russia over its actions in Ukraine, a step that could clear supermar ket shelves of French cheese, Australian beef and U.S. chicken in this import-heavy country. The decree which left open what would be banned and limited came in response to a fresh round of United States and European Union sanctions after the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over rebel-held territory in eastern Ukraine. U.S. and E.U. ofcials have accused Russia of providing the antiaircraft missile that shot down the jet, which Russia has denied.Two massive vessels to search for missing plane(Washington Post) The search for missing Malaysia Airlines ight MH370 has entered a new phase with the Australian government selecting a Dutch consulting rm to conduct a deep-water operation that could take up to a year to complete. Two massive vessels equipped with deepwater vehicles and expert personnel will cross the southern Indian Ocean, Australian Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said on Wednesday. The vessels, which will set off in September, could cover more than 20,000 square miles. DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) As the steadily advancing Ukrainian army sets its sights on reclaiming the largest rebel-held city in eastern Ukraine, tension is building over whether a large Russian army lying in wait just across the border will step in to protect the separatists. President Vladimir Putin has resisted mounting pressure from Russian nationalists to send the army in to back the mutiny in eastern Ukraine. Even though the U.S. and NATO would be unlikely to respond militarily, the West would be certain to impose major sanctions that would put the shaky Russian economy on its knees and quickly erode Putins power. When you see the build-up of Russian troops and the sophistication of those troops, the training of those troops, the heavy military equipment thats being put along that border, of course its a reality. Its a threat, its a possibility absolutely, U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday. U.S. and NATO ofcials say there are now about 20,000 Russian troops massed just east of Ukraine. Pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine have been ghting the Kiev government since April. Ukraine and Western countries have accused Moscow of backing the mutiny with weapons and soldiers, a claim the Russian government has repeatedly denied. The West has also accused Russia of most likely providing the insurgents with sur face-to-air missiles that may have been used to shoot down a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet over rebel-held territory on July 17, killing all 298 people on board. Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said he believed the threat of a direct intervention (by Russia) is denitely greater than it was a few days ago, or two weeks ago. Adding to the concern is Russias proposal in recent days for a humanitarian mission to eastern Ukraine. We share the concern that Russia could use the pretext of a humanitarian or peacekeeping mission to send troops into eastern Ukraine, NATO spokeswoman Oana Lungescu said in an emailed statement. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen will visit Kiev on Thursday to meet President Petro Poroshenko and other ofcials.Tensions grow in Ukraine over Russia troop buildup AP PHOTOLocal residents inspect the damage after night shelling on a local market, in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, Wednesday. KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) The Afghan soldier who killed a U.S. two-star general and wounded 15 other people hid in a bathroom with a NATO assault rie then opened re when a group of ofcers from international forces passed by, an Afghan military ofcial said Wednesday. As U.S. and Afghan ofcials investigated the attack Tuesday that killed, Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene, the highest-ranked U.S. ofcer to be slain in combat since 1970 in the Vietnam War, authorities reported two other so-called insider attacks the same day. In the deadliest of the attacks, an Afghan police ofcer killed seven of his colleagues at a checkpoint, then stole their weapons and ed in a police car late Tuesday in the Uruzgan provincial capital of Tirin Kot, provincial spokesman Doost Mohammad Nayab said. A doctor at a local hospital told the AP it appeared the police ofcer drugged his colleagues before the shooting. The doctor spoke on condition of anonymity as he wasnt authorized to release the information. Nayab later denied that the police ofcers had been drugged and said the ofcer involved had Taliban connections, without elaborating. In Paktia province, an Afghan police guard exchanged re with NATO troops near the governors ofce, provincial police said. The guard was killed in the gunght. Insider attacks in Afghanistan rose sharply in 2012, with more than 60 coalition troops mostly Americans killed in more than 40 attacks that threatened to shatter all trust between Afghan and allied forces. U.S. commanders imposed a series of precautionary tactics and the number of such attacks declined sharply last year.Official: Generals killer hid in bathroom +0% financing in lieu of rebates, with approved credit, through ALL!

In 1814, Pope Pius VII issued a bull restoring the Society of Jesus, or Jesuits, four decades after the order had been suppressed by Pope Clement XIV. In 1882, the famous feud between the Hatfields of West Virginia and the McCoys of Kentucky erupted into full-scale violence. In 1942, U.S. and other allied forces landed at Guadalcanal, marking the start of the first major allied offensive in the Pacific during World War II. (Japanese forces abandoned the island the following February.) In 1959, the United States launched the Explorer 6 satellite, which sent back images of Earth. In 1963, first lady Jacqueline Kennedy gave birth to a boy, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, who died two days later of respiratory distress syndrome.

According to a criminal complaint, 32-year-old Ria Buford got into the car at about 2:15 a.m. Saturday outside a nightclub that was hosting a party after the Wiz Khalifa concert. Police say she sat in the drivers seat and told the two plainclothes officers in the back that she intended to drive the vehicle to where her own was parked. Police say Buford was arrested before she could drive anywhere. A man who intervened in her arrest was also charged. Online court records dont list an attorney for Buford. She faces a preliminary hearing Thursday on charges of robbery of a motor vehicle, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.ODD NEWS Cops: Drunk got in police car with officers inside Hurler syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that progressively damages his organs and brain. Because Wyatts parents are often busy with his medical needs, household chores like cleaning the sh tank, vacuuming, mowing the lawn and washing the car sometimes go undone. The Blancheris watched as the Mursets pulled ladders, hoses and other cleaning supplies from the RV and set to work both inside and outside their home. They are doing a lot of those chores that we just honestly dont have time to do, Nicole Blancheri said. It means a lot to us that they have so generously donated their time to help us out. Adam Murset, 11, mowed the Blancheris lawn and helped wash their car. Adam said he wasnt thrilled when his dad rst proposed spending the summer doing chores for others. But he said meeting children like Wyatt and doing work at Ronald McDonald Houses around the country has been a good experience. The reward in helping families like the Blancheris is about giving back or sharing their earnings with people who need help, Murset explained. The next generation thinks We are entitled to whatever we want. Not in my house, said Murset. For instance, Murset who has a parenting website recommends requiring a child to work for the privilege of having a cellphone. Youve got to tie work and reward together, Murset said. Especially in that cellphone, it seems like that is such an integral part of a teenagers life, but you tie it to where they have to make them pay for some of it, it makes a big difference. Murset has also developed a cellphone app that allows parents to assign chores to their children. The kids keep a log and are rewarded points that correlate to a monetary value determined by their parents. The children can then decide whether to save, share or spend what they have earned. Murset said his older children occasionally complain that their friends dont always have to work for the things they want. But he said his years as a nancial planner taught him that successful people work hard and are smart with their money a lesson he fought to instill in his kids from the time they were toddlers, having meltdowns in stores about things they wanted. The Mursets travels took them 6,500 miles from Arizona to the East Coast and back. A public relations rm helped arrange for publicity along the way, and the family was frequently written up in news reports. And Adam has learned a lot about doing yard work. Ive done lawns, like what I did today, and weve pulled trees out and done other things like pulling weeds and picking up leaves, he said. He added, At rst I thought it was a little crazy because I would have to spend the summer, a month of the summer, away from my friends and stuff, but then, after we started doing it, it became fun and its been really fun.FAMILYFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOIn this July 18 photo, Sterling Murset washes a car at the home of Todd Blanchieri, left, in Pensacola, Fla. The Murset family is touring the country doing chores for families in need like the Blanchieri family. varied widely when asked to elaborate on their expectations of jobs in the next decade. Some said that self-driving cars would be common, eliminating taxi cab and long-haul truck drivers. Some said that we should expect the wealthy to live in seclusion, using robot labor. Others were more conservative, cautioning that technology never moves quite as fast as people expect and humans arent so easily replaceable. We consistently underestimate the intelligence and complexity of human beings, said Jonathan Grudin, principal researcher at Microsoft, who recalls that 40 years ago, people said that advances in computer-coding language were going to kill programming jobs. Even as technology removed jobs such as secretaries and oper ators, it created brand new jobs, including Web marketing, Grudin said. And, as Grudin and other survey responders noted, 11 years isnt much time for signicant changes to take place, anyway. Aaron Smith, senior researcher with the Pew Research Centers Internet Project, said the results were unusually divided. He noted that in similar Pew surveys about the Internet over the past 12 years, there tended to be general consensus among the respondents, which included research scientists and a range of others, from business leaders to journalists. Respondents in this latest survey generally agreed that the education system is failing to teach the skills that students need for the future. Smith said some survey respondents criticized the system for promoting memorization of tasks rather than creativity, teaching a Henry Ford education for a Mark Zuckerberg economy. Also, Smith said, some respondents concluded that jobs that dont require specically human traits such as empathy, ingenuity or resourcefulness are at risk for being replaced, including low-skill blue collar jobs or even white-collar jobs that have people performing repetitive tasks. Respondents offered a few theories about what might happen if articial intelligence takes over some positions and fewer jobs are created. Judith Donath, a fellow at Harvards Berkman Center for Internet and Society, foresees chronic mass unemployment with the wealthy living in walled cities, with robots providing the labor. Some respondents see people returning to small-scale, handmade production, and an appreciation would grow for products with the human touch. Others thought people could also face abundant leisure, allowing them to pursue their personal interests.ROBOTSFROM PAGE 1 Schwehm, who was lead scientist on the Rosetta mission until his recent retirement. Thats probably an understatement. To catch their quar ry, scientists at the European Space Agency had to overcome a series of hurdles that included a last-minute change of destination after a carrier rocket failure delayed launch and a tense hibernation period of 31 months during which the probe was out of contact with ground stations. Before Rosetta swung alongside 67P with a nal thrust Wednesday, the spacecraft also had to accelerate to 34,000 mph a speed that required three loops around Earth and one around Mars. Underlining the singular achievement, ESAs director-general JeanJacques Dordain told scientists and spectators at the mission control center in Darmstadt, Germany: This is your only chance to have a rendezvous with a comet. Rosetta will now spend several months observing 67P from a safe distance of up to 60 miles. This will give scientists time to find a safe place to land Rosettas sidekick, Philae. This maneuver will pose an unprecedented challenge because there will be no second shot. Recent pictures of 67P show that its surface is porous, with steep cliffs and house-sized boulders. One person involved with Rosetta from the start told The Associated Press that the landing was mission impossible with only a slim chance of success. He spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid harming his employer. Even if the landing fails, Rosetta itself will remain in the comets orbit until at least the end of 2015, gathering reams of data with its 11 on-board sensors. As 67P gets closer to the sun it will begin to fizz and release the cloud of dust and ice that most people associate with comets. Were going to have a ringside seat to see, for the first time, a comet turn into a comet, to develop its tail and explain what for centuries mankind has been puzzled by, said David Southwood, a former president of the Royal Astronomical Society who was involved with the Rosetta mission from the start. Overall, scientists hope the $1.74 billion mission will help them learn more about the origins of comets, stars, planets and maybe even life on Earth, he said. Mark McCaughrean, a senior scientific advisor at ESA, predicted plenty of surprises ahead. With this comet, every time we see a new image the jaws drop, he said. Everybody just cant believe how lucky we have been.COMETFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOIn this picture taken on Aug. 3 by Rosettas OSIRIS narrow-angle camera Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is pictured from a distance of 285 kms. travel and trade restrictions and wider Ebola screening. It also would be an acknowledgment that the situation is critical and could worsen without a fast global response. The group did not immediately confirm the new cases reported in Nigeria. And Nigerian authorities did not release any details on the latest infections, except to say they all had come into direct contact with the sick man who ar rived by plane in Lagos late last month. In Sierra Leone, some 750 soldiers deployed to the Ebola-ravaged east as part of Operation Octopus, aimed at enforcing quarantines of sick patients. In Spain, the Defense Ministry said a medically equipped plane was ready to fly to Liberia to bring back a Spanish missionary priest who has Ebola. At the same time, Saudi officials reported a suspected Ebola death, underscoring the risk of the disease spreading by air travel even as many airlines curtail their flights to the most infected cities. Ebola, which causes some victims to bleed from the eyes, mouth and ears, can only be transmitted through direct contact with the bodily fluids of someone who is sick blood, semen, saliva, urine, feces or sweat. Millions in Lagos live in cramped conditions without access to flushable toilets. Signs posted across the city warn people not to urinate in public.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 WASHINGTON (AP) The use of an experimental drug to treat two Americans diagnosed with Ebola is raising ethical questions about who gets rst access to unproven new therapies for the deadly disease. But some health experts fear debate over extremely limited doses will distract from tried-andtrue measures to curb the growing outbreak things like more rapidly identifying and isolating the sick. The World Health Organization is convening a meeting of medical ethicists next week to examine what it calls the responsible thing to do about whatever supplies eventually may become available of a medicine thats never been tested in people. At least one country involved in the outbreak is interested in the drug. Nigerias health minister, Onyenbuchi Chukwu, said at a news conference that he had asked the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about access. CDC Director Tom Frieden conveyed there are virtually no doses available but that basic supportive care can work, a CDC spokesman said Wednesday. President Barack Obama said Ebola is controllable and the U.S. and its allies are working to help overwhelmed public health systems in West Africa take the needed steps. Asked about the experimental drug, Obama said all the information isnt in: Weve got to let the science guide us. There is no proven treatment or vaccine for Ebola, which so far has infected more than 1,700 people and killed more than 930 in West Africa in what has become the worst outbreak of this viral hemorrhagic fever. How many times have we found magic therapies that ended up ... doing more harm than good? cautioned University of Minnesota professor Michael Osterholm, who advises the U.S. government on infectious disease threats.Ethical issue: Who gets experimental Ebola drug? aaaaaQ0Eudl4o.......................................................................................................................................................................................................S-J

Following a jurys recommendation, a Hillsborough County judge sentenced 26-yearold Richard McTear on Tuesday. Jurors found him guilty last week of rst-degree murder, kidnapping, battery and aggravated child abuse charges. Prosecutors had been seeking the death penalty. Authorities say McTear attacked ex-girlfriend Jasmine Bedwell in 2009 and then took off with her son, Emanuel Wesley Murray. He then threw the baby out of a car window on Interstate 275 in Tampa. The child was found dead along the side of the highway. Defense attorneys argued that McTear was innocent and questioned the mothers credibility. A previous court proceeding against McTear ended in a mistrial.Fla. Legislature to keep map changes simpleTALLAHASSEE (AP) Florida legislators are returning to the state Capitol with a simple goal. And thats redraw the states 27 congressional districts with as few changes as possible. The nine-day special session that kicks off Thursday is being sparked by a judges ruling that found two districts were drawn illegally to benet Republicans. Instead of appealing the ruling, GOP legislative leaders have decided to adopt a new congressional map that calls for changes to just a handful of districts. Senate President Don Gaetz said Wednesday that legislators want to minimize any unintended chaos to other congressional districts. Senate Democratic Leader Chris Smith said its clear that GOP leaders are willing to draw a new map to avoid the chance that other districts could be declared unconstitutional if a court ght lingered on.Mowing crew finds body near I-75 in Ft.

But planning how to stay healthy (and what to do if they get sick) usually isnt part of their preparation. Consumer Reports offers these strategies for staying well while youre away from home. Check your insurance coverage. Emergencies such as broken bones or heart attacks are usually covered outside of your network or area, but doctor visits may not be. In foreign countries, you might have no coverage at all. If you have a chronic health condition or youll be doing something that could conceivably lead to injury, consider buying travel health insurance. Avoid commission-driven policies sold by tour operators, cruise line representatives and travel agents. Instead, check out an online broker, such as InsureMyTrip, that sells coverage from multiple companies. Download your health records. If your doctor has a patient portal, you can access portions of your medical records, such as medications, allergies and other vital pieces of information. Download it to a thumb drive and take it with you to give doctors instant access in case of an emergency. ID where to get medical help. Knowing the quality of health care youll have access to is especially important if you have a chronic condition, are traveling outside of the U.S. or will be taking a cruise. According to international maritime law, cruise ships arent even required to have a doctor onboard; a crew member with medical training is sufficient. For anything serious, you probably will have to disembark at the next port of call. Stash meds in your carry-on. Even if you dont have to take a dose during your flight, its best to have medications with you instead of in your checked bags, in case the luggage is lost. Be sure to pack enough of any prescription medication to last the entire trip, plus a little extra. Outsmart germs. From norovirus to colds and flu, certain infections spread easily where large numbers of people congregate planes, hotels cruise ships. Your best defense is to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds as often as you can. If soap and water arent available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. Dont sit still. Research shows that long-distance air travel can increase your chances of developing a blood clot in your leg. A similar risk has been found with traveling by car, bus or train. If you cant get up from your seat, Consumer Reports recommends flexing and extending your feet at least hourly. When driving, stop the car every two hours to take a walk or stretch. Drink a lot of water. That sluggish feeling you get while flying may have nothing to do with jet lag. Being dehydrated, even mildly, can cause fatigue. The air in planes is very low in humidity. That can lower fluid levels in the body and dry out your eyes, skin, mouth and nasal passages. Not only is that uncomfortable, but a dry nose is the perfect incubator for a cold virus. Watch what you eat and drink. Enjoy the local cuisine, but dont overdo it. Studies have identified that the highest likelihood of sudden cardiac death occurs on holidays associated with over indulgence, such as Thanksgiving. Eating your way through Italy, for example, could create the same conditions in your body. Prevent travelers diarrhea. Sticking to bottled water and hot, freshly prepared foods is your best defense. But bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto-Bismol and generic) has a mild antibacterial effect, and taking it may cut in half your odds of getting diarrhea. Take two tablets four times per day throughout your trip. It contains salicylate, an ingredient in aspirin, so check with your doctor if you have ulcers or other medical conditions. 9 strategies for a safer, healthier journey NEW YORK (AP) U.S. stocks stabilized on Wednesday after earnings from a major beer brewer helped the market stem its recent declines. The stock market ended the day little changed after a sizable drop a day earlier, when Russia massed troops near its border with Ukraine. Molson Coors was the biggest gainer in the Standard & Poors 500 index after the company reported better-than-forecast earnings. Rupert Murdochs 21st Century Fox rose after the company said it was dropping a bid to acquire Time Warner, while Sprint plunged after it abandoned its effort to acquire T-Mobile US. The stock market has become more volatile in recent weeks, and slumped last month to its rst monthly decline since January. Investors are weighing signs that the U.S. economy is strengthening against the threat of an escalating conict in Ukraine, as well as the prospect of the Federal Reserve raising its benchmark interest rate. On the one hand the U.S. economy is really starting to look good, but on the other hand, the markets are certainly jittery about whats going on in Ukraine and Russia, said Anastasia Amoroso, Global Markets Strategist at J.P. Morgan Funds. The S&P 500 rose a fraction of a point, or less than 0.1 percent, to 1,920.24. The index lost 18 points, or 1 percent, on Tuesday. The index is still up on the year, but has dropped 3.5 percent from its record close set July 24. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 13.87 points, or 0.1 percent, to 16,443.34. The Nasdaq composite rose 2.2 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,355.05. Molson Coors rose $3.87, or 5.8 percent, to $71.08 after the company said its second-quarter prot rose 9 percent as better pricing offset a global decline in the volume of beer sales. As well as watching earnings, investors were looking at two merger bids that unraveled. Sprint plunged $1.38, or 19 percent, to $5.90 after the company said it was abandoning its pursuit of T-Mobile US. Sprint would have struggled to convince regulators to approve a merger of the No. 3 and No. 4 cellphone carriers in the nation, according to The Wall Street Journal. Sprint is also replacing its longtime CEO. Time Warner fell $10.95, or 12.9 percent, to $74.24 after Rupert Murdochs 21st Century Fox said it was dropping its attempt to take over the company. Stocks on Wall St. stabilize Florida is on the national map as the number-one state that has the largest concentration of eligible mortgages for the HARP II program, the presenter at a national meeting said last week, and we are surprised that there arent more homeowners in Florida taking advantage of the program. After the meeting, I took a quick peek at the HARP website to verify and better understand the comment, and quickly found out that in Florida, as of March, there were 99,840 mortgage holders who have been identied as eligible for this money-saving program. The website was easy to use, and in a few clicks I uncovered that our area reportedly has 5,208 eligible homeowners: Charlotte County: 968. Sarasota County: 1,614. DeSoto County: 92. Lee County: 2,534. As you may recall, the government HARP II program allows homeowners who are upside down in their home to renance their home mortgage at a possible lower interest rate, resulting in lower monthly payments. Across the nation, thousands have beneted from this program, and it is a shame that Florida is the top state in the nation that is NOT taking advantage of this program. If you are a homeowner who originated your loan before June 1, 2009, you owe it to yourself and your future to check out the further details at http:// harp.gov (then click on Are You Eligible), or simply call your local bank and ask to speak with a residential lender.

Thats the opposite of what state ofcials, under Republican Gov. Rick Scott, said earlier this week. Analyzing rates for the 2015 health plans sold through President Barack Obamas law can be tricky and politicians on both sides are eager to use the gures as evidence of the laws success or failure. An estimated 75 percent of Floridians live in areas where the silver premium will actually decline, Tasha Bradley, a spokeswoman for the federal Department of Health and Human Services told The Associated Press. Their analysis shows the cost of that silver plan will decrease by 6 percent in Miami, 12 percent in Orlando and 17 percent in West Palm Beach. Of the nearly 1 million plans purchased in Florida this past year, 73 percent were silver plans. Its also the most common plan nationwide because the subsidy tax credit is based on the silver plan, which is the second-lowest priced. The state said Monday that consumers could expect an average premium increase of 13 percent in 2015. State ofcials calculated the average of premiums for all plans, bronze, silver, gold and platinum to arrive at the gure, but the Obama administration says its misleading to average the premium costs of all plans because most people purchase silver plans. State insurance ofcials didnt immediately comment Wednesday. Federal ofcials also weighted each county by its population when analyzing the gures instead of a statewide average. The premiums for silver plans in some areas will increase, but in big cities enrollment was robust and multiple insurance companies competed to drive down costs.

The waiting game ended when Tiger Woods pronounced himself pain-free and ready to compete in this weeks PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club after playing nine holes in practice on Wednesday afternoon. His tness for the years nal major had been in doubt after he was forced to withdraw midway through the nal round of the WGCBridgestone Invitational in Ohio on Sunday. However, Woods said the problem was resolved when his sacrum (a bone at the base of the spine), which had popped out of place after he landed awkwardly in a bunker at Firestone Country Club, was put back in by his physiotherapist. My sacrum went out, it pinched the nerve and hence the spasms, Woods told a large group of reporters behind the clubhouse at Valhalla before he set off to walk the back nine. Once the bone was put back in, it was all good. The spasms went away and I started to get some range of motion. Im not in any pain. That is the good part. Asked if he was capable of winning this week to end a title drought at the majors of more than six years despite his limited tournament preparation, Woods replied: Yes. Asked what he needed to do the best at Valhalla, he said: Hit it good and make the putts.Woods says hes ready to go at Valhalla GOLF: PGA ChampionshipBy MARK LAMPORTSTOKESREUTERSREUTERS PHOTOTiger Woods watches his tee shot on the seventh hole Wednesday during a practice round for the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky.

But its also a good time to review the basics, which most teams seem to be doing this time of year. Egloff led a practice heavy on simple concepts, which was useful since many of the players present will end up on the junior varsity squad. Seniors such as defensive tackle Deionte Turner and Tajahs Jackson have heard all this before. Its pretty basic since weve got a lot of young guys in here, Jackson said. We cant really jump into it, because theyd probably be lost. Turner chuckled at Bulldogs go back to review the basics PREP FOOTBALL: DeSoto CountyBy ROB SHORESPORTS WRITERBULLDOGS | 2 RAYS | 3PHOTO BY KIM KLEMENT/USA TODAY SPORTSTampa Bay rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins will get his rst real introduction to competition in the NFL when the Buccaneers face Jacksonville in a preseason game Friday. TAMPA Its rst-andthree preseason games to go before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers truly kick off the regular season under new coach Lovie Smith. However, Fridays exhibition game at Jacksonville will be the rst real introduction to competition in the NFL for rookies such as wide receiver Mike Evans and right end Austin Seferian-Jenkins. For 35-year-old starting quarterback Josh McCown, entering his 11th NFL season, its the newness of the rst preseason game that never gets old. Its a special moment, McCown said. I love the rst preseason game. It is the coolest thing. I was just thinking about it because the young guys just nished up with the two-minute drill there, and youve got four McCown to rookies: Cherish the opener NFL: Tampa BayBy RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESBUCS | 6 INSIDEBucs Magee puts baseball on the back burner, PAGE 6 ACJ II F I ,-,y.as=-A

GOLF: PGA ChampionshipHronek set for first majorNorth Port resident David Hronek is scheduled to take part in the 96th PGA Championship, which begins today at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky. Hronek is scheduled to tee off at 2:45 p.m. on the rst hole today and at 9:45 a.m. on the 10th hole on Friday. He is paired with Jason Bohn and Chris Stroud. Both rounds are scheduled to be televised on TNT. Hronek, who won the Charlotte County Open in 2012 and nished third in the event in October, was one of 20 PGA Professionals who qualied for the eld at the 47th PGA Professional National Championship at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, S.C. in late June. He nished tied for eighth in that event. Hronek has been the Director of Instruction at Countryside Country Club in Clearwater since April. Prior to Countryside, he worked at Plantation County Club in Venice for 16 years. Hronek has played in ve PGA National Club Professional Championships and seven PGA National Assistants Championships. The PGA Championship, which is conducted by the PGA of America, is the only major that sets aside a portion of its playing spots for non-touring pros. Hronek attempted to qualify for the U.S. Open in each of the past two years, but failed to advance past the local qualifying stage.STAFF REPORTNorth Port resident tees off today Since dining with Jack Nicklaus and meeting with him in his West Palm Beach ofce, Rory McIlroy has two victories, including his third major at the Open Championship last month. Nicklaus, who won 18 majors, continues to encourage Tiger Woods pursuit of his record tally in golfs grandest tournaments. Woods, who has 14 major victories but last won one of the PGAs four landmark tournaments in 2008, is undecided on playing today when the PGA Championship tees off at Valhalla Golf Club a signature Nicklaus design. He certainly has at least another 10 years of playing major championships golf, Nicklaus told ESPN Radio on Wednesday. Thats 40 at least 40 majors to win. I believe Tiger will do that if his health remains good. Nobody ever wants their records broken, thats obvious. But I dont want him to not break the records because hes not healthy. Thats certainly not in the cards of what I would like to see. Or what anybody would like to see. Nicklaus, 74, said McIlroy is in position to win for decades to come, and that would bring ample opportunity to rack up major tournament titles like few before him. It depends on what he feels his priorities are and thats his call, Nicklaus said. I think Rory has an opportunity to win 15 or 20 majors or whatever he wants to do if he wants to keep playing. But you just dont know what the guys priorities are going to be in life 10 years from now. McIlroy, ranked No. 1 in the world, has four top-10 nishes in the PGA Championship and won in 2012. He landed in Louisville with consecutive tournament wins in his back pocket, largely crediting a mental calm to his approach and isolating every shot, forgetting the good or bad on earlier swings. Ive had a great run of golf and Ive played well over the past few months, McIlroy said. Look, I said at the start of the year that golf was looking for someone to put their hand up and sort of become one of the dominant players in the game. I felt like I had the ability to do that, and its just nice to be able to win a few tournaments and get back to where I feel like I should be, which is near the top of the World Rankings and competing in majors and winning golf tournaments. Recently recognized for his greater driver distance and rened putting stroke, Nicklaus praised McIlroy as the total package. I think Rory is an unbelievable talent, Nicklaus said. I love his swing, I love his rhythm, I love his moxie. Hes got a little swagger there, its a little bit cocky but not offensive. I like that. I like the self-condence in a young man. Hes got an unbelievable amount of speed in his golf swing, he obviously hits the ball a heck of a long way. And he hits in there consistently and how he controls it.Nicklaus says McIlroy could win 20 majorsBY THE SPORTS XCHANGE GOLF Watson names Stricker vice captain for Ryder Cup LOUISVILLE, Ky. United States captain Tom Watson has appointed PGA Tour veteran Steve Stricker as a vice-captain for this years Ryder Cup against Europe at Gleneagles in Scotland. Stricker, 47, will join Andy North and Raymond Floyd as an assistant, though Watson pointed out that he could qualify for the team as a player if he wins this weeks PGA Championship at Valhalla. With just this weeks event remaining before the top nine on the U.S. Cup standings earn automatic selection for Gleneagles, Stricker languishes in 38th spot after playing the PGA Tour on a part-time basis over the last two years.Mark Lamport-Stokes, Reuters The 14-time major winner, who has dealt with a string of injuries during his career and had surgery in late March to treat a pinched nerve in his back, had delayed his decision on whether or not to compete while receiving medical treatment. Woods and his caddie, Joe LaCava, arrived at the Valhalla clubhouse car park where a throng of photographers and television cameramen were waiting, one of them calling out: Tiger, hows the back? to be met with no response. Wearing sunglasses and sporting a goatee, Woods got out of the car and changed his shoes before heading off to the practice range where he was joined by his swing coach Sean Foley. He showed no sign of any discomfort as he warmed up before he set off, in front of huge galleries, to play the front nine in the company of fellow Americans Steve Stricker, Davis Love III and Harris English. Asked to assess the quality of his game during practice, Woods replied: I felt pretty good about how I played and the shots I hit. I need to get more feel for how this golf course is playing. Woods exited the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone in obvious pain after hitting his drive on the ninth hole of the nal round. He said he had been enduring back spasms since the second hole. The American had been competing in his third PGA Tour event since being sidelined for three months after having back surgery, causing him to miss both the Masters in April and the U.S. Open in June. Woods, who has been stuck on 14 major titles since winning the 2008 U.S. Open in a playoff, has played just seven tournaments worldwide this season with his best result a tie for 25th at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. He has withdrawn twice from his six PGA Tour starts and missed the cut in one other. Prior to the Bridgestone Invitational, the 38-year-old nished 69th at the British Open after closing with a 75 for a six-over-par total of 294.WOODSFROM PAGE 1 some of the rst-week material. Ive been doing it since I was a freshman, so its just like redoing it, he said with a broad grin. But if youre going to do this stuff, you might as well do it in the gym when the team isnt yet in pads. Wednesdays workout wasnt complicated but it was all necessary stuff. Egloff took time to go over fundamental details with the defensive scheme that the team will utilize all season. Offensive coordinator Bumper Hay did the same with the offense, going over schematic fundamentals as the team was lined up in formation and adding a few terms to players vocabularies. (I talk about) A gap and B gap and ve-technique, Egloff said. Even some of the older guys look at me funny when I talk about that. Egloff also touched on taking proper angles. Even O-line stuff is about transportation stuff, getting from A to B, Egloff said. Its basic stuff, but its important stuff. You made a good play, but you could have made a better play. And as Jackson said, its also about the seniors showing the way to the younger players. Or its like a refresher to the veterans. Youve got to rebuild on your memory, Turner said. Then its like a walk in the park to you.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comBULLDOGSFROM PAGE 1

The Sun /Thursday, August 7, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 to 55-59 and 912 games behind the Orioles in the American League East race and 512 back, at worst, for the second AL wild card. If the prediction was that one pitcher would get knocked out in the fth after allowing seven runs and the other would sail through seven innings, most would have guessed the former for Hellickson, who hadnt made it through ve innings in his rst three starts since coming off the disabled list, and the latter for Gray, who had allowed seven runs total over his previous six starts. But it was the other way, as Hellickson stepped up with by far his best outing, retiring the rst nine As and allowing only two hits (one a homer by Eric Sogard) and one other baserunner (hitting John Jaso) in a 99-pitch outing. It was his rst win in 11 months. Meanwhile the Rays hitters, after scoring only two runs and going 1 for 15 with runners in scor ing position over the rst two games, eventually took advantage of Grays rare off day. They built the lead slowly, with Kevin Kiermaier delivering the rst run on an ineld grounder in the second then the next two on a homer in the fourth, during which he nearly passed Jose Molina around the shortstop spot. Evan Longoria singled in Ben Zobrist, who hustled home to make it 4-0. The Rays added three in the fth, including the rare phenomenon of a bases-loaded hit, with Desmond Jennings singling in two runs. Zobrist followed with an RBI single to make it 7-0. Hellickson allowed Sogards homer in the sixth. Joel Peralta worked the eighth and Grant Balfour after allowing a two-out single, a walk and a two-run double nished it. The Rays left after the game for Chicago, where they will have today off before opening a threegame weekend series against the Cubs.RAYS 7, ATHLETICS 3Tampa Bay AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

COX/USA TODAY SPORTSTampa Bay Rays center elder Desmond Jennings makes a catch against the Oakland Athletics during the sixth inning Wednesday at O.co Coliseum in Oakland, Calif. PORT CHARLOTTE A lot has been written about Justin OConner this season. Tampa Bays prospect is in the middle of a career year, batting a career-best .282 with 10 home runs and 44 RBIs. The catcher played in both the Florida State League All-Star Game and the MLB Futures game, and he excelled behind the plate for Charlotte. OConner has thrown out 50 percent of would-be base-stealers and has picked off 14 runners. That was enough for OConner to play his way out of Class A. The catcher was promoted to Double-A Montgomery on Wednesday for the rst time in his career. Im extremely excited for him. Its a great oppor tunity for him to nish the year there, Stone Crabs manager Jared Sandberg said. Hes got all the tools and the ability to play in the big leagues, so this is the next step in his journey. Catcher Jake DePew will trade places with OConner, getting sent back to Charlotte from Montgomery after hitting .179 in 17 games with the Biscuits. The 22-year-old hit .222 over 20 games with the Stone Crabs to start the season. DePew will split time with Maxx Tissenbaum behind the plate, though Sandberg said their exact playing-time split has yet to be determined. DePew has caught 28 games this season, while Tissenbaum playing catcher for the rst time in his career has caught 25. Luke Bailey will join the catching rotation once he recovers from the strained left oblique that forced him to the disabled list on July 24. Barring setbacks, Sandberg said the soonest Bailey could come off the DL would be Friday. Stanek to the DL: The Stone Crabs placed right-hander Ryne Stanek on the disabled list, retroactive to August 3. The Rays No. 11 prospect hasnt pitched since July 19 due to rightshoulder fatigue. He was placed on the DL because the team needed to open a roster spot. Stanek has made 11 starts since being selected in the first round of the 2013 draft. He is 4-5 with a 4.04 ERA this season between Bowling Green and Charlotte. Sandberg said the right-hander is progressing nicely and will likely resume throwing sometime in the coming days. Given that its his first full professional season, Sandberg said the Rays have no plans to rush him back. Schultzs debut: Righthander Jaime Schultz made his Stone Crabs debut on Wednesday, giving up two hits and walking five over five scoreless innings against the Palm Beach Cardinals. The 23-year-old has a 1.71 ERA over 10 starts between Low-A Bowling Green and Charlotte, striking out 62 batters in 42 innings. Sandberg said Schultz will take the place of Jordan Harrison in Charlottes rotation. Harrison will pitch out of the bullpen and be available to start should the Stone Crabs need him. He has a big fastball, mid-90s, Sandberg said. When I spoke to him today, he told me his goals were to command the strike zone with all of his pitches. He said he had some bouts of being erratic, but hes a guy with some big-time stuff. Familiar face: The Stone Crabs brought back right-hander Nick Sawyer from the GCL Rays on Wednesday. The reliever was optioned to the GCL on June 16 after walking 30 batters in 17 innings for the Stone Crabs, but hes back after going 2-0 with a 1.84 ERA in 10 games on the back fields. Sgt.

JUPITER Soriano hit his rst home run in the Florida State League, a two-run blast that capped Charlottes 6-1 victory against Palm Beach at Roger Dean Stadium on Wednesday. The victory is the Stone Crabs ninth in a row and 12th in their last 13. They are above .500 in the second half (22-21) for the rst tie and ve-andhalf games behind in the standings. Against Palm Beach, Charlotte took the lead in the fourth when Johnny Field doubled to start the inning and scored on Thomas Coyles single. The Stone Crabs added two in the sixth when the rst four batters reached base. Tim Beckhams singled and scored on Fields second double of the game (sixth overall). Field scored on Patrick Leonards double, his 24th. Seven of nine Charlotte batters recorded at least one hit. Field, Coyle and Leonard, batting in the 2-4 spots, combined to go 6 for 13 with three RBIs and three runs scored. That was enough offense for starter Jaime Schultz (1-0), who was making his debut with the Stone Crabs, and three relievers. Though Charlotte pitchers allowed seven hits and seven walks, Palm Beach went 0 for 13 with runners in scoring position. STONE CRABS 6, CARDINALS 1Charlotte AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

The losing streak is the Braves longest this season and marked the rst time since May 2012 that Atlanta has lost eight in a row. The only other time the Braves went winless on a trip of at least eight games was in 1949 when the Boston Braves were 0-8 on a road swing. Atlanta jumped to a 3-1 lead in the third inning but quickly fell behind when starter Julio Teheran gave up two homers in the bottom of the inning, including a three-run shot by Logan Morrison. The Mariners had 12 hits and posted their highest run total since July 1 when they beat Houston 13-1. The last time Seattle had scored more than six runs at home was June 24 in an 8-2 win over Boston. Padres 5, Twins 4 (10): Seth Smiths long solo home run to start the 10th inning was the difference for San Diego in Minneapolis. Smith blasted a 414-foot shot over the wall in right for his 12th homer. The Twins were three outs from taking the two-game series, but Glen Perkins allowed a leadoff double to Yonder Alonso in the ninth and a walk to Rene Rivera. A sacrifice by Alexei Amarista moved both runners into scoring position and Alonso scored on a sinking sacrifice fly to right by Everth Cabrera. The blown save was Perkins first since June 20 and third of year. Rangers 3, White Sox 1: In Chicago, Adam Rosales hit two home runs and Nick Tepesch didnt allow a run in his return to the mound for Texas. Rosales went 2 for 4 and drove in all three runs for the Rangers, who won the three-game series after drop ping the opener. White Sox left-hander Chris Sale (10-2) allowed two runs and took the loss after throwing six innings and striking out nine. Nationals 7, Mets 1: Doug Fister took a shutout into the eighth inning, and Adam LaRoche hit two homers for host Washington. Fister (11-3) gave up one unearned run and six hits with seven strikeouts and no walks in 7 innings. LaRoche, who hit a three-run homer in the first, made it 7-1 in the eighth with a solo blast. Pirates 7, Marlins 3: In Pittsburgh, left-hander Jeff Locke (3-3) overcame giving up three runs in the first two innings to pitch seven innings, and Josh Harrison had three more hits to lead Pittsburgh. Locke gave up six hits, did not walk a batter and struck out seven in winning for the first time in five career starts against the Marlins. Blue Jays 5, Orioles 1: In Toronto, Jose Bautista homered and drove in three runs, and right-hander Drew Hutchison threw a gem to lead Toronto. Other than a second-inning homer he surrendered to Chris Davis, Hutchison didnt allow a baserunner through the first eight innings. Hutchison retired 22 consecutive batters after Davis homer, and allowed one hit over 8 innings. Reds 8, Indians 3: In Cincinnati, Zack Cozart hit a three-run homer, and Kristopher Negron added a two-run shot for the Reds. Negron went 3 for 4, for his first career three-hit game. Starter Mat Latos (4-3) allowed three runs and six hits in 7 innings for Cincinnati, which has won 15 of 20 games against Cleveland at Great American Ball Park. Phillies 10, Astros 3: In Philadelphia, Ben Revere went 4 for 5, and Chase Utley hit a three-run homer to power Philadelphia, which broke out offensively after scoring two runs in its previous 36 innings. David Buchanan, recalled earlier in the day from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill the spot in the rotation vacated when Cliff Lee was lost to an elbow injury, went 6 innings for the victory. Buchanan (6-5) allowed three runs and nine hits and had five strikeouts without walking a batter. Yankees 5, Tigers 1: In New York, Brian McCann hit a go-ahead home run with one out in the seventh inning, and New York ended a streak of 16 consecutive games decided by two runs or fewer. The Yankees completed their run of opposing three straight former Cy Young Award winners by taking two of three. They beat Max Scherzer but lost Tuesday in 12 innings in David Prices Tigers debut.Braves end winless tripBY SPORTS XCHANGE MLB ROUNDUPAP PHOTONew York Yankees Chase Headley watches his fth-inning, solo home run o Detroit starter Justin Verlander during Wednes days game in New York. 50469930 Current Golf Rates $35 AM $29 After 12PM $29 Before 8AM $23 After 2PM BSGC $27 AM $25 PM *All rates plus tax* Memberships available Book Tee Times on-line at www.bobcattrailgc.c om or call (941) 429-0500 Join now with NO initiation fee

The Cubs also said outelder Nate Schierholtz has been designated for assignment. According to reports, Miami right-hander Jacob Turner was claimed off waivers by the Cubs. Fujikawa was available for the Cubs on Wednesday against Colorado at Coors Field. Fujikawa, 34, returns to the Cubs following his recovery from Tommy John surgery on June 11, 2013. He made his major league debut with the Cubs last season after pitching 12 years with the Hanshin Tigers in Japans Central League. Fujikawa appeared in 12 games last year, recording the save on opening day, and went 1-1 with two saves and a 5.25 ERA. Two minor leaguers suspended: The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball said San Francisco minor league right-handed pitcher Jacob Dunnington received a 50-game suspension after a second positive test for a drug of abuse. Cincinnati Reds minor league shortstop Cesar Mejia received a 72-game suspension without pay after testing positive for a metabolite of Boldenone. Padres hire GM: San Diego hired former Texas assistant general manager A.J. Preller as its general manager. Preller replaces Josh Byrnes, who was fired in June. The Padres have not been to the playoffs since 2006 and have reached the World Series only twice: 1984 and 1998. Injury report: White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper hasnt improved in his bout with vertigo and will not make the start of the upcoming trip to Seattle and probably will not make the second leg of it to San Francisco. The White Sox hope to get righthander Zach Putnam (right shoulder inflammation) back from the 15-day disabled list Friday and could get right-hander Matt Lindstrom (left ankle surgery) back from the DL today. The Texas Rangers expect to get catcher Geovany Soto back from the 15-day DL on Friday and will also get catcher Chris Gimenez back from the paternity list that day. Miami right-hander Jarred Cosart has been scratched from his scheduled start because of a strained oblique muscle. Rookie left-hander Brian Flynn (0-0, 6.00 ERA) will take his place. Cosart is tentatively slated to pitch Tuesday against St. Louis at Miami. Around the majors: Cleveland right-hander Josh Tomlin, who gave up five earned runs in Tuesdays 9-2 loss, is moving to the bullpen. Hes having a tough time getting the fastball where he wants to and hes paying the price, manager Terry Francona said. Minnesota first baseman Joe Mauer made his second start for Class A Cedar Rapids as part of his weeklong rehabilitation assignment. On the disabled list since July 2 with a strained oblique, Mauer was DH Tuesday. Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons (ankle) was on crutches after spraining his ankle Tuesday. Simmons described the ankle as not great, but not too bad.

Cleveland ofcials intend to make interior and exterior modications to the area stretching from center to right eld, a person familiar with the plans conrmed for The Associated Press on Wednesday. The changes will require a modest reduction in seats, which the team will offset by the addition of social areas to accommodate fans, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not made its designs public. The rst phase of the project, expected to be nished by the 2015 home opener, will be privately nanced, the person said. The Indians will provide details of the major enhancements at the 43,000-seat ballpark at a news conference today. Team president Mark Shapiro will lead a guided media tour to areas of the ballpark that will be modied and upgraded. In making improvements to Progressive Field, the team will join the citys other professional teams, the Browns and Cavaliers, who are both in the process of making enhancements at FirstEnergy Stadium and Quicken Loans Arena. While the projects are being funded privately, some in the future may be paid with public money after voters in Cuyahoga County approved a 20year extension of a tax on cigarettes and alcohol. Known as Jacobs Field when it opened in 1994 to replace crumbling Municipal Stadium, the 43,000-seat home of Clevelands major league baseball team has undergone numerous alterations over the past two decades. The Indians have been proactive in keeping Progressive Field outtted with the latest in scoreboards, concessions and other services. However, the club has seen attendance drop from a franchise-high 3.46 million in 1999 to 1.57 million last season. The Indians are drawing only 18,659 fans per game this year second-lowest in the majors. There are numerous reasons for the decline: a slow-to-recover economy, dwindling population and baseballs struggle to lure younger fans among them. The Indians sold out 455 consecutive games from 1995 to 2001, but those days are long gone, which is why the team is looking to change the look of its ballpark. Also, teams are more cognizant that younger fans are seeking a different game-day experience, which may include higher-end foods and bever ages, social media areas, bars and restaurants. The timing of the Indians renovation coincides with a rebirth of downtown Cleveland, which got a recent boost when the Republican Party announced plans to hold its 2016 national convention in the city.

The Sun /Thursday, August 7, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 5 NCAA student-athletes may move a step closer to receiving nancial compensation when a group of university leaders are expected to decide today to allow the wealthiest collegiate sports programs to leave behind decades-old restrictions and chart a self-governing course. The embattled National Collegiate Athletic Associations Division I Board of Directors is scheduled to vote in Indianapolis, as it faces legal pressure to share its billions in revenue with athletes. The majority of athletes never play professionally, and critics say the NCAAs scholar ship policy short-changes athletes who risk injury and devote many hours to practice, travel and competition. For the new structure to pass, it must get a majority of yes votes from the NCAAs 18 directors, which comprise college presidents and chancellors. That would give the top ve conferences autonomy to shape their rules and possibly ease regulations on agents, recruiting and pay. The NCAA, which does not allow students to earn money for their athletic performance, has been sued by former and cur rent athletes in U.S. court demanding a share of prots that includes tens of billions in guaranteed television money. This year, it settled cases along with video game maker Electronic Arts for using the likenesses of current and former football and mens basketball players in video games. The NCAA also faces a unionization push by scholarship football players at Northwestern University who want the right to have a say in benets and compensation. Thursdays vote on restructuring rules is likely to greatly affect football, basketball, mens ice hockey and baseball, according to the NCAA. It shows a clear commitment to support student-athletes and allow them not only a place at the table but a voice in the process, NCAA president Mark Emmert said in a statement last month, in an endorsement of the reform. One of the rst items set to be voted on would institute a cost of attendance scholarship and other guarantees that would cover living costs for student-athletes that are not currently offered. Other items to be considered are insurance policies that would protect future earnings and nancial assistance for families traveling to sporting events. Under the proposed regulations, the student-athletes would have a say on new rules along with the 65 universities that comprise the Atlantic Coast Conference, Big 10, Big 12, Pac-12 and Southeastern Conference. If approved, the new structure could only be challenged if at least 75 Division I schools request the board to reconsider. Critics of granting autonomy to the biggest athletic schools say the new structure would create a further divide between the richest athletic departments and smaller-revenue univer sities, possibly leading to cutting sports programs. Big-time athletic departments such as the Texas, Michigan, Florida and Oregon often bring in more than $100 million in annual revenue through ticket sales, merchandising agreements and media rights.Restructuring vote is expected to passBy ERIC KELSEYREUTERS COLLEGES: Rules changesThe autonomy package needs simple majority Sports on TV BOXING10 p.m. FS1 Bantamweights, Oscar Cantu (7-00) vs. Joseph Rios (13-9-2); junior welter weights, KeAndrae Gibson (10-0-1) vs. Jose Hernandez (14-7-1); junior lightweights, Jerry Belmontes (19-4-0) vs. Abner Cotto (17-2-0), at Corpus Christi, TexasGOLF1 p.m. TNT PGA of America, PGA Champion ship, rst round, at Louisville, Ky. 3 p.m. TGC USGA, U.S. Womens Amateur Championship, second and third round matches, at Glen Cove, N.Y. 5 p.m. TGC LPGA, Meijer Classic, rst round, at Grand Rapids, Mich.LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL2 p.m. ESPN Playos, Great Lakes Regional seminal, teams TBD, at Indianapolis 5 p.m. ESPN2 Playos, Northwest Regional seminal, teams TBD, at San Bernardino, Calif. 7 p.m. ESPN Playos, Great Lakes Regional seminal, teams TBD, at Indianapolis 9 p.m. ESPN Playos, Northwest Regional semi nal, teams TBD, at San Bernardino, Calif.MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL1 p.m. MLB Regional coverage, Detroit at N.Y.

They have played 41 games, including the Stanley Cup playoffs, in the past three seasons, highlighted by seven-game series in each of the past two postseasons. The Sharks will be competing in their rst outdoor game. Defenseman Aaron Ekblad, taken by Florida with the No. 1 pick in this years draft, sustained a concussion in Canadas world junior exhibition game against the Czech Republic on Tuesday and will miss the rest of summer development camp.

In his first action since a quarterfinal loss at Wimbledon, Murray looked confident and sharp, disposing of his 19-year-old opponent in 54 minutes on a sunny center court under the watchful eye of coach Amelie Mauresmo. Murray said the battle now is to get back to full match fitness. I started to feel good, actually, just before the French Open, explained the world number nine, who has not appeared in a final since lifting the Wimbledon title in 2013. Caroline Wozniacki breezed through a second match in a row with a 6-1, 6-2 victory against Klara Koukalova in the second round of the Rogers Cup in Montreal. She has lost only five games in two matches in the hard-court event. The former world No. 1 from Denmark next plays Shelby Roger. In the night feature, top-ranked Serena Williams dispatched Samantha Stosur 6-0, 6-2 in a match interrupted 28 minutes by rain. Williams is coming off a victory Sunday in Stanford, Calif. her fourth victory of the season.COLLEGE FOOTBALLPolice: Both drivers in fatal crash were drunk: Former Auburn tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen and the driver involved in a fatal crash June 30 were excessively intoxicated at the time of the crash. The Georgia State Patrol released its toxicology findings, showing Lutzenkirchens blood alcohol level was .377. He was ejected from the Chevrolet Tahoe SUV and died at the scene of the 3 a.m. accident. Driver Joseph Ian Davis had a .17 BAC. He was partially ejected from the vehicle and was also killed. Two other passengers were injured. North Carolina State junior running back Shadrach Thornton had his indefinite suspension lifted. Coach Dave Doeren had suspended Thornton in December after he was cited for misdemeanor simple possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. The charges were later dismissed. Thornton continued to practice with the team during the spring and the start of preseason camp.CYCLINGHolfland wins Utah stage: Moreno Hofland won his second stage in three days at the Tour of Utah, outsprinting a host of rivals after a flat, windy stage at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, August 7, 2014 rookies in the huddle at the skills positions, and thats cool for them, man. Its going to be neat for them Friday night. And I always tell them to cherish it because you dream about this when youre growing up. Youre going to play in an NFL uniform, and youre going to play under the lights. You dont ever know how long its going to last. It may last one year, three years, ve years, you dont know. And so just enjoy it. It will be fun to watch all those guys play but especially our higher picks that we expect to contribute early. The starters are expected to play about a quarter against the Jaguars, Smith said Wednesday. They will increase their minutes until the third preseason game, when starters will play into the third quarter. The fourth preseason game will be saved for rookies and players on the bubble. Did I tell you I was out of football (last year)? Smith said. Butteries? You do miss it. But every year in my last job (with the Bears), there was excitement every game. Thats not going to change how many times youve done it, the rst or the 20th year. We need to play a game. We really do. Were anxious to play. You can only hit your teammates so hard. Second-year defensive tackle Akeem Spence remembers how nerves got the best of him during the preseason opener last year. I was so nervous, man. I didnt want to mess up, Spence said. I didnt want to jump offsides. I didnt want to mess up. But as I got to playing, running around and making plays, I got more comfortable, and by about Game 3, I felt real good (about) what I was doing. Praise for bortles: The Bucs did a lot of scouting of Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles. The star at Central Florida was the third overall pick in the draft, taken four spots ahead of Evans, from Texas A&M. Smith may have drafted Bortles had the QB slipped to the Bucs. I think we liked everything about him, Smith said. Starting off, I think we liked the way he played in his last game against a good Baylor team. He performed well. I watched him quite a bit just being a football fan. He played good ball. When you meet him, hes a great guy, was a sponge, hungry to get to the next level. We liked him an awful lot just like Jacksonville did. We think he has a bright future ahead of him, to say the least.BUCSFROM PAGE 1 NFL NOTEBOOKBrowns tab Hoyer to start preseason openerCleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine announced Wednesday that quarterback Brian Hoyer will start Saturdays preseason opener in Detroit, but Johnny Manziel could get reps with the starters. It was his job, Pettine said of Hoyer after practice. He was the one coming into it. Hes done nothing to have that taken away from him. Pettine said it was fair to say the decision on who would start the regular-season opener at Pittsburgh on Sept. 7 would be based on the rst two preseason games because he wants to have his starters in line for the third game. I think more weight will be put on those, as I said before, because its live reps, Pettine said. Pettine said Manziel is coming along faster than expected. Moreno makes camp debut with Miami: Knowshon Moreno made his training camp debut in a white No. 28 jersey and with no visible brace on his knee at the Miami Dolphins facility. Moreno, who signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Dolphins, had arthroscopic knee surgery in June. I think it has just kind of been a gradual progression, day-to-day its been and the medical staff has obviously done a great job supervising his rehab, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said of Morenos rehab schedule. And just felt like this was the appropriate time to get him going. Jaguars add Barden: Ramses Barden is joining the Jacksonville Jaguars, who added the tall target to address a shortage of wide receivers. Barden, 6-6, 225, was out of the NFL last season. A third-round pick of the Giants in 2009, Barden struggled to separate from press coverage and had 29 receptions for 394 in 29 games and four seasons with the Giants. Browns expect Gordon out eight games: With Josh Gordons appeal of a one-year suspension complete, the Browns are expecting the wide receiver to be suspended for at least eight games. The Cleveland Plain-Dealer reported that Gordons defense of second-hand smoke causing a positive test for marijuana use was unlikely to inspire the NFL to overturn the suspension. Around the league: Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson left practice with a foot injury and his status for todays preseason opener against New England is in doubt. Jackson stopped in his tracks and appeared to turn his ankle and foot a defender stepped on Jacksons foot while he running a route in 11-on-11 drills during the third joint practice of the week with the New England Patriots. ... New York Giants running back Peyton Hillis, who was listed No. 2 on the depth chart behind Rashad Jennings, is out indefinitely with an injury to his ankle/foot. Its a sprain, as far as Im concerned, coach Tom Coughlin said. There is some language behind it. I think its a sprain. The degree of which it takes to get him back out there, theres some speculation on that. I hope its as fast as possible, but I dont know if thats the case. ... Arizona Cardinals tight end Jake Ballard, who suffered a serious knee injury while playing for the Giants in the Super Bowl, announced his retirement after just four years in the NFL. Ballard, who started 13 regular-season games and three postseason games for the Giants during the 2011 season, tore an ACL during New Yorks Super Bowl XLVI win over the New England Patriots. ... The Dallas Cowboys signed cornerback Korey Lindsey and safety Johnny Thomas to help with a serious need in the secondary. Both will travel to San Diego and could play tonight against the Chargers. ... The Chicago Bears worked out free agent wide receiver Santonio Holmes but signed wideout Greg Herd instead, the New York Post reported. The Bears signed Herd after they lost wide receiver Marquess Wilson indefinitely with a fractured clavicle. ... The Oakland Raiders signed free agent linebacker Spencer Hadley. He originally signed with the New Orleans Saints in May 2014 before being waived in June. The 6-foot-1, 227-pounder played in 43 games over four seasons at Brigham Young.BY THE SPORTS XCHANGEMoreno makes camp debut for DolphinsAP PHOTOCleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer talks with oensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan on Wednesday during training camp in Berea, Ohio.

In summer 2008, he was taken in the baseball draft out of Corona (Calif.) Centennial High School in the 29th round by the Tampa Bay Rays, and he told them he would sign. A Rays scout got to his house at 12:30 one afternoon and stayed until after 1 a.m., trying to get his signature on a tempting contract. Seventeen years old, seeing that many zeros, thats pretty exciting, said Magee, who ultimately chose to take a football scholarship to Arizona State. I just didnt feel right signing. I felt like I needed to go to college. Magee, 5 feet 11 and 225 pounds, played football and baseball for the Sun Devils. He piled up 231 tackles 24.5 for losses as a weak-side linebacker and twice went to the College World Series as a backup outelder. And though he totaled just two hits in his college baseball career, he was drafted by the As in 2011, then the Red Sox in 2012, and he signed with Boston, maintaining his football eligibility for a nal season while committing to dabble in pro baseball. Magee has corresponded with Bo Jackson, perhaps the best-known dual-sport star for his pro football and baseball careers in the 1980s and s, and understands the challenge of playing both. Rays scouting director R.J. Harrison, who also attended Arizona State and calls Tempe home, remembers Magee well and followed his career in college. If theres somebody that has the makeup to do it, hes probably that kind of guy, Harrison said. Not only is he a good athlete, but hes a really good person. Magee landed with the Browns, played in eight games and had ve tackles before he tore a pectoral muscle with a month left in the season. He spent last spring in Fort Myers, working for more than two months at the Red Soxs extended spring training as an outelder even when his injury kept him from hitting early. He reported to the Browns for offseason work but was waived last month with a new coaching staff making changes. Magee, just coming to grips with getting cut, was home watching TV with his mother when he found out hed been claimed by the Bucs. Excited by a fresh start, he is happy to put baseball on the back burner while he works to impress Bucs coaches in the next month, trying to make the team as a fth or sixth linebacker. Right now Im 100 percent focused on football, said Magee, who had an interception early in camp and a physical tackle of running back Mike James this week in full-contact drills. Bucs linebacker Mason Foster, a Pac-12 rival of Magees when he played at Washington, said Magee is showing the same skill in practice during camp. Ive loved his game since college, Foster said. Hes making a bunch of plays out there. Hes a real quick, real aggressive linebacker, plays sideline to sideline. Hes a smart dude, always asking questions and trying to get better. I cant wait to see him play. Whatever hes doing, hes always 100 miles per hour.By GREG AUMANTAMPA BAY TIMESBucs Magee percent focused on football PHOTO BY WILL VRAGOVIC/ TAMPA BAY TIMESBrandon Magee was home watching TV with his mother when he found out that hed been claimed by the Bucs. BUCCANEERS AT JAGUARSWHO: Tampa Bay (0-0) at Jacksonville (0-0) WHAT: Preseason opener for both teams WHEN: Friday, 7:30 p.m. WHERE: EverBank Field, Jacksonville TV: WFLA RADIO: 103.5 FM, 620 AM, 1580 AM, 99.3 FM TICKETS: ticketmaster.com New Cavs know rolesBY THE SPORTS XCHANGEThe Cleveland Cavaliers introduced two role players to next seasons team on Wednesday to go alongside LeBron James as they try bring the rst title to the city in 50 years. Newly signed forwards Mike Miller and James Jones, who won back-toback titles with James and the Miami Heat, know exactly why they were tar geted by general manager David Grifn. Our goal is to win a championship, Miller said during his introductory news conference at Cleveland Clinic Courts. To win a championship it takes a lot of hard work. Its one of the hardest things you will ever do. I was able to be a part of an unbelievable ride in Miami and for us to have a second chance at that here in Cleveland is a blessing and we are excited about the opportunity. Miller, 34, knows that same pressure will be placed on the Cavs this season. One thing we can take is we have been through the experience, Miller said. Its going to be crazy here next year and we understand that. Miller, who averaged 7.1 points per game last season, reportedly signed a two-year contract worth $5.5 million. Jones deal is believed to be for one year at the league minimum. Jones, 33, is an 11-year veteran with two titles and valuable playoff experience that will be mixed with a young core led by All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, forward Tristan Thompson and guard Dion Waiters and possibly forward Kevin Love, who could be headed to the Cavaliers in a trade with Minnesota before the month ends. Knicks, Kings make deal: The New York Knicks traded forward-center Jeremy Tyler, guard Wayne Ellington and the rights to their 2016 second-round draft selection to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for forwards Quincy Acy and Travis Outlaw. Ellington has averaged 6.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 302 career games with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Memphis Grizzlies, Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks and the Knicks. Tyler has played 80 career NBA games with the Golden State Warriors, Atlanta Hawks and the Brooklyn Nets with averages of 3.8 points and 2.7 rebounds. Griffin returns from back injury: Blake Griffin resumed workouts in Los Angeles with teammate DeAndre Jordan and said he has no limitations from a back injury that led him to bow out of Team USA training camp last month. Griffin confirmed there is a small fracture in his back. Provided he doesnt overdo workouts, Griffin anticipates no restrictions during the NBA season.

ON THE COVERWaterLine photo by Josh OliveAnd now the waiting game begins. If youre going to target only the biggest sh, be sure to bring along plenty of patience. WEEKLY MAGAZINE Red snapper workshop Aug. 11The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is hosting a Gulf of Mexico red snapper workshop Aug. 11 in St. Petersburg for recreational stakeholders to discuss state and federal management of recreational red snapper. The workshop will also explore potential future approaches to managing this shery in an eort to ensure optimal access for Floridas resident and visiting anglers. Anglers who would like to share their ideas and help improve management are encouraged to attend. The meeting is from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, 3rd oor confer ence room, 100 Eighth Ave. SE, St. Petersburg. The FWC is seeking input from recreational anglers about how to better manage recre ational harvest of this species at the state and federal level while continuing to rebuild the shery. Several management options that are being considered for federal waters by the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council will be discussed. Options include sector separation, which entails dividing the federal recreational red snapper quota into separate private-angler and for-hire quotas; an individual shing quota (IFQ) program for federally permitted charter and head boats, similar to the existing program for commer cial vessels, which allots a specic portion of sh to individual vessels; and regional management, in which the recreational shery in federal waters could be managed on a state-by-state basis. Please call 850-487-0554 or email Marine@ MyFWC.com for more information. Provided by the FWC So much rain! The tropical system that sat on top of us earlier this week dumped a lot of water on us between 2 and 6 inches for most of us. Call that a 4-inch average over the 1,870 square miles of land in Char lotte, DeSoto and Sarasota counties, and thats a staggering 13 billion gallons of rainfall over three days. All that water has to go some where. Because much of our soil is sandy and drains quickly, a lot goes into the ground. In developed areas, roads, parking lots and other imper vious surfaces, almost all of it runs o. Overall, my best guess would be that about 40 percent of the rain that fell is already in the rivers or will be in the near future. Whats the point? Well, I was talking with a couple fellow shorebased anglers this weekend in two of our local tackle shops. Both were aware of the impending mass inow of fresh water, and both had devel oped a plan to deal with the issue. In fact, they had both developed the same plan. Knowing that many salt water sh would clear out and move toward the Gulf, they were going to do the same by targeting their shing eorts at El Jobean. Some of you have already realized the aw in this plan. Those of you who have not, read on. Fish dont usually travel by car. They travel by swimming. If youre coming from Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Arcadia or most of North Port, El Jobean is closer to the Gulf than the Bayshore or Laishley Park piers. But for the sh, its not. Take a look at the map here. El Jobean sits near the mouth of the Myakka River, just like the popular Punta Gorda spots sit near the mouth of the Peace River. All those areas are seeing huge amounts of runo right now. Think like a sh. Select your shing locations based on the water distances, not our familiar human world of roads. After I explained that to both of these anglers, they decided to sh closer to the Gulf. One headed to Placida; the other to the Venice jetties. I know its a longer haul for many of you, but it just makes sense to sh where the sh are. Break a rod.

Here at Gasparilla Marina, I have everything I need to make sure that happens. My boat is securely stored on a lift, but I have easy access to it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I can get fuel, bait and supplies at competitive prices right here. I love not having to trailer it anywhere to have work done; the marinas service department takes care of everything. Plus I have quick access to the areas best shing spots. I cant imagine keeping my boat anywhere else. Capt.

Redsh are active along oyster beds. Mangrove snapper are active near any type of structure. Bigger ounder have been caught in numbers around Big Pass. Tarpon and trout have been caught in numbers at night near bridges and other structures that have lighting. The light attracts baitsh. Mangrove snapper and red grouper have been consistently caught as close as 9 miles oshore. Barracuda and the occasional kingsh are also in the mix. Snook are cruising along area beaches, especially Caspersen and Venice beach and near the Venice Inlet. Use threadn or whitebait. Remember, season opens Sept. 1. CAPT. CAMILLECOUGAR BAIT Nokomis/Venice 941-488-8229 CHUCKLAISHLEY MARINE Punta Gorda 941-639-3949Small baitsh have been plentiful around Lemon Bay. Bigger redsh are being caught around the mangroves during moving tides around Lemon Bay and Placida. Look for moving water. Snook are scattered along the beaches. Mangrove snapper are still biting around Boca Grande Pass using freelined shrimp. Red and gag grouper are doing good in 100 feet of water. Watchout for the storms. Guys are catching tarpon around the passes and beaches. Catch them while they are still in pods. Articials or live bait will work. Try early morning. Redsh and trout are regularly being caught near the mangrove lines and sand holes around Turtle Bay. Snook are also swimming along Stump Pass and are feeding on cut ladysh. Work the local canals for bass using shiners. Anglers are catching small red grouper just 15 miles o of Venice Beach using cutbait. Big sailcats seem to be everywhere, so use live or dead shrimp and have a good time. Just watch out for their pointy ns. And dont be afraid to llet one for supper. Redsh are cruising the beached during lower tides. Snook are also cruising the beaches. Look for them hanging around shade in the heat. Small sharks are scattered (Shark Week starts Aug. 10th on the Discovery Channel). Gag and red grouper are out there and are biting. The winds were a bit nasty, but should settle down this week. Tarpon in later afternoon by the bridges and passes in the Harbor. They seem to be taking articials like the D.O.A. Bait Busters. The west wall and Turtle Bay are producing plenty of redsh and snook. With the water a bit more clearer than last week, sh are back to using sight a bit more than just relying on scent. Pirate Harbor and Burnt Store are areas that have been producing occasional ounder and trout this past week and will likely do so this week. Go at least 60 miles oshore or more for mangrove snapper, gag grouper and yellowtail snapper. Inshore sharks are swimming in numbers. They are very comfortable with the fresh water and have no problem nding food. No secret to catching these guys. Just use some type of cutbait and a strong leader. Redsh are hanging around Pine Island Sound. Few trout reports. Mangrove snapper are biting well in the passes. Sharks are swimming all over the Harbor. The rains will likely change things a bit this next week. Few cobia reports. Oshore is banging if you can make it out. Mangrove snapper are blowing up 10 to 20 miles. Bonita and Spanish mackerel are also out there at that distance. Gag and red grouper can be found 30 miles oshore. Tarpon. Why not? O the beaches, near the passes and in the Harbor. Alligator Creek Reef and other holes in the Harbor are holding silver kings. DUSTIND&D BAIT AND TACKLE Matlacha 239-282-9122 JESSEOLD PINE ISLAND MARINA St. James City 239-283-2548 Redsh are chewing active near Two Pines. Tarpon are still in the passes, and cutbait seem to be working best. Despite the poor visibility due to all the fresh water, the snook bite is good around Pine Island Sound, and greenbacks are a top choice for bait. Live shrimp is also a good choice. A few red grouper reports 30 miles oshore just outside of Redsh Pass. As a general rule, the deeper the water, the bigger the sh. Blacktip and bull sharks are roaming the ats and the passes. The freshwater may have pushed some species out, but not shark. Use cutbait, drop and wait. A large amount of freshwater ow from the Caloosahatchee River has made visibility poor. Snook, redsh and trout are still around, but you will have to really look for them. Shark are biting and catsh are abundant. Black and red grouper reports are solid about 100 miles oshore. African pompano are also commonly reported right now. Tarpon are nding food in the area and seem to be everywhere. Try using cut catsh as bait, especially around the passes of Pine Island Sound.

Page 8 August 7, 2014 There has been a lot of news recently regarding BUI, or boating under the inuence of alcohol or drugs. But there is little discus sion of BWF, or boating while fatigued. The tragic death of a boater, and the resultant charges against the intoxicated captain, are a lose-lose for everyone. What most boaters dont realize is that studies have shown the fatigue factor associated with a full day under the hot summer sun causes a lack of focus and concentration roughly equivalent to that of a person whose sobriety test shows them to be over the legal alcohol limit. Combine this factor with the glare of the sun o the water, and you have a potentially lethal combina tion. The FWC has increased its surveillance of potentially intoxicated boaters, but have no way to check for fatigue. Fatigue can also contribute to confusion if and when a hazardous condition exists. If your life jackets, rst-aid kit, re extin guishers, and other safety gear are not stored in a visible and readily accessible place, a fatigued person may not be able to locate them quickly when they are desperately needed. So make certain that precious gear isnt down in the galley or locked inside a hatch, but is readily accessible. Also be sure before heading out on the water you brief your crew on where the safety gear is stored, to double your chances of retrieving it when needed. Try to minimize your time in the direct sun, trade time at the helm with a crew member, and stay well hydrated to minimize the fatigue factor so you may be alert and safe.Bill Hempel is the Assistant Safety Ocer for the Peace River Power Squadron and a member of the USPS national marketing committee.

Page 10 August 7, 2014 In my career as a charter shing guide, one of the things that I learned very early on was to expect the unexpected during every trip and. It still amazes me to this day at just how fast the bite can change on you during a shing excursion, and lets not even get into how fast the weather can change. Im pretty sure we all know that shing styles change about every three months or so along with the seasons, and most of us also know that things can and often do change overnight. But for those of us who are fortunate enough to be on the water more than a few days a week, we know that the bite can also change in a blink of an eye, for better or worse, and that change is almost always unexpected. Ive also learned to expect the unexpected from every client, even if the client is a regular. Even so, it still shocks me from time to time just how fast a clients, friends or even family members demeanor can change during the course of a shing trip. One minute the bite is on re, and everybody on board is hooting and hollering and having the time of their lives. Seconds later, the bite goes ice cold and along with it the people youre shing with. I guess thats to be expected. When the sh are biting, people are happy and friendly. When the bite stops, people stop liking you at least, it can feel that way sometimes. If you want to get everyone in your shing party back in a good mood (and liking you again), just gure out how to get the sh to start biting again. Problem solved! If only it were that easy. So, what do you do when a bad (unexpected) episode unfolds during your shing trip? Let me see if I can help you out a little. The rst thing you have to do is keep your cool. Dont freak out or panic, and never let your friends see you sweat (theyll just make fun of you behind your back for sweating). Stop, take a deep breath and try to remember what was going on around you when the bite was hot. Did the baitsh pull a disappearing act? Have you drifted o of the hot spot? Did the school of sh you were working on move? Did a dolphin, shark or another boat move into the area? Keep in mind that there is almost always a legitimate reason the bite shuts o abruptly (unless youre tarpon shing, that is). It can be something as simple as the tide stopped moving or as complex as the sh just dont like you anymore. Whatever the reason might be, there is always going to be a x well, almost always. Its always in your best interest to bring enough terminal tackle with you on every shing trip to cope with whatever comes your way. Every shing writer in WaterLine preaches preparedness. Now there is such a thing as overkill when it comes to preparing for a trip, but a few extra of this and a couple extra of that just might mean the dierence between a good trip and a bad one. When youre on my boat, you might notice a few things I never leave the dock without. I always have several spools of uoro carbon leader on board, ranging anywhere from 20to 80-pound, depending on the time of year. I also always carry jigheads from sixteenthto quarter-ounce, and multiple packs of dierent color D.O.A shad tails to go along with them. Other things I always have on board: Singlestrand #9 wire, oats, gold and silver spoons, 3/0 and 8/0 circle hooks, 3/0 and 7/0 J-hooks, split shot and quarter-ounce egg weights, and D.O.A. Bait Busters. The reasoning behind what I bring on my shing trips is simple. Fluorocarbon leader is a must in salt water; without it you might never get a bite. Wire leader is good for catching that shark that just spooked o your school of redsh. Soft plastics catch everything, and switching colors or the size of your jighead when the bite turns o just might re it back up. Spoons are also a no-brainer lure that can sometimes trigger stubborn sh back into biting. Assorted hooks and weights are handy if your decide to go with dierent natural baits to re the bite back up, and Bait Busters are great to have just in case that lone tarpon or cobia comes swimming by. Changing lures, colors or switching to natural baits are all great ways to get sh to feed again after they shut down. Just remember, if the bite is on re, dont change what youre doing until its not working anymore (because that would be dumb) and always expect the unexpected. Tight lines.Capt.

Page 11 August 7, 2014 Its an unusual question for a bird of prey to ask, but he wants to know all the same: Who cooks for you? Who cooks for you all? Thats what the call of a barred owl sounds like, though the enunciation isnt very clear (you can watch a video of one calling at http://bit.ly/eHPhR). Despite their inexplicable interrogations, barred owls are near the top of my favorite birds list. Unlike their larger cousins the great horned owls, which prefer to live away from human habitation, barred owls are often heard in suburban neighborhoods. In fact, because their main prey species (rodents and songbirds) do very well around people, barred owls may actually benet from suburban sprawl. Because they prefer to live near water, barred owls are at risk from shing lines that get tangled in trees. They are just one of many species that can be hurt or killed by abandoned line, so make every eort to remove any monolament or braid that gets stuck in a tree. Most of the time, owls are heard rather than seen. Barred owls are more likely to be active in the late afternoon than other owls, so theyre the species youre most likely to spot. They do have excellent camouage, though its pretty easy to be looking right at one and not see it. A good way to get an owls attention is to imitate its call, or at least the last two notes (the you all part). A barred owl will often call back to you, or at least turn its head and stare in your direction. Either way, you should see the motion if youre looking in the right vicinity. Barred owls have huge distribution, from Florida north to Canada and west to northern Mexico. In recent years, barred owls have made a push into the Pacic Northwest, where they may be displacing endangered northern spotted owls (you remember them they were the subject of anti-logging eorts a few years back and ended up being the butt of late-night comedians jokes). In 2007, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposed shooting a number of barred owls living in spotted owl habitat to eliminate the competition, which was done on an experimental basis. The experiments did slow the spread of barred owls, and in June the federal government released it spotted owl recovery plan, which includes killing more barred owls. But the problem isnt really barred owls the problem is a climate shift and more people living in the region, both of which are making more barred owl habitat and less spotted owl habitat. Shooting barred owls is a poor solution, but since theres no way to reverse the actual causes of spotted owl decline, wildlife managers have decided to blame the birds. In most of their range, voles make up the bulk of a barred owls diet. Since voles are uncommon in this part of the state, the owls instead focus on other rodents, especially cotton rats. When the sky is overcast, the barred owl some times hunts during daylight hours. This is usually when they take smaller birds, including doves and pigeons. Snakes, grasshoppers and lizards are also poten tial prey. Theyve even been known to kill and eat smaller owls and in turn, barred owls are sometimes preyed on by great horned owls. If you know where the owls in your neighborhood, its not dicult to nd out exactly what theyve been eating. Owls eat their prey whole. To rid their systems of indigestible matter hair, feathers, bones, etc. they regularly regurgitate clumps of it. These clumps, called owl pellets, can be picked apart. Trained biologists can tell what species the hairs and teeth in these pellets came from, which not only identies what the owls are dining on but in what proportions. In Florida, barred owls nest in mid to late January. Most frequently, the adults will select a cavity in a dead tree. If a suit able hole cant be found, an old squirrel or large bird nest is sometimes appropriated. Barred owls are not nest builders and rarely if ever construct their own. They do, however, usually line the hole with down feathers or palmetto bers. The eggs are white, almost round, and usually laid in a clutch of two or three. The time between hatching and edging is 40 to 45 days, and the parents will feed the young birds for several weeks after they can y while they learn to hunt. Eventually, the adults will chase their ospring from their territory. Barred owls are homebodies and usually stay in the same area year-round. A pair will often nest in the same hole for years. Having a resident pair of barred owls for neighbors is one of the many wonderful wildlife experiences you can have here in Southwest Florida. And remember, the next time you hear Who cooks for you? coming from a nearby tree, dont answer the question. Just ask it back, and make an owly friend. Who cooks for you?

Whats a reef donkey? Its an amberjack. Why is it called a reef donkey? Because once you get a hook into one, it pulls like the worlds most stubborn mule. Why is that fun? Well, if youre asking that, maybe youre not really a sherman. Amberjack are the largest of the jack clan in our local waters. Pretty much every sh in this family is known for pulling hard, and as the biggest of the group, amberjack are at the top of the pulls really hard pile. Most shermen are a little awestruck by their rst AJ encounter. Imagine if a weightlifters thigh muscle were wrapped in sh skin and you were trying to pull it out of the water. Its kind of like that. AJs are not inshore sh. I have seen many photos of jack crevalle that are labeled amber jack, probably because of the yellow tint that these sh often have. If youre shing in the Harbor or within sight of the beaches, you didnt catch an amberjack. To target them, you have to go out to deepwater reefs. The minimum depth Id think about looking is about 60 feet, but water thats 80 to 100 feet deep is much more likely to hold good keeper sh. Youll be shing on reefs, wrecks and ledges basically, the same places youd look for grouper. There are three lookalike species you may catch: Greater amberjack, lesser amberjack and banded ruddersh. Theyre really hard to tell apart really, really hard. So hard, in fact, that I dont even try. I dont keep any of the little ones, even though they may be legal, because I dont trust my ability to tell them apart and I dont want to get caught on the wrong side of the law. Instead, I just keep my one big AJ and call it done. The minimum is 30 inches to the fork, but since you can keep only one per harvester, I rarely take a sh less than 40 inches. You might be thinking that such large, powerful sh call for serious heavy-duty tackle. You would be right. I prefer conven tional gear, which gives you more leverage to heave-ho those sh to the boat. But you can put some pretty serious heat on them with spinning gear, now that there are several strong and light jigging rods on the market at reasonable prices. For a reel, Id use the big Penn Battle from my tarpon outt, but you can use any quality 6000 size or bigger spinning reel. Be sure the drag is smooth, because a reef donkey will test it. As for what to tie on the business end, start with a 10-foot length of 60-pound uoro carbon. Long leaders are always good when the sh may be able to see your main line. Then add a stout reef sh-legal circle hook and bait up with well, almost anything. Squid, live or dead sh, and anything else that a grouper might eat will be eagerly inhaled by an AJ. The trick is to keep it well o the bottom. Ambers rarely eat o the bottom, so keep your baits suspended. If you like articials, buttery jigs and big bucktails are fantastic choices for targeting amberjack. Wanna have some real fun? Chum them up, get a feeding frenzy going near the surface, and throw big poppers or other loud topwater lures. This technique doesnt always work, but when it does hoo boy, thats a helluva time. Many anglers hold AJs in high regard as a world-class sportsh but cringe at the idea of eating them. I dont know why that is, because theyre actually a fantastic table sh. Im not a big sh eater, but properly prepared amberjack is one of my favorites. In my opinion, theyre one of the most underrated food sh in the Gulf but youve got to do it right. Preparation begins with icing. Any sh destined for the table should be placed in an ice/water slush as soon as possible after being caught. When you clean the sh, take care to carve out every bit of red meat. Even a small amount left behind will aect the avor of your nished product. Be merciless. If you dont want to waste anything, the red meat can be smoked for sh dip (or saved to mix in with chum for the next trip). I cook it simply, using a recipe I learned from Capt. Cayle Wills sauted in butter and lemon pepper marinade in the skillet, sprinkled with Kraft Parmesan cheese (dont use the good stu; it actually changes the avor for the worse). Others prefer to blacken, smoke or even deep fry their llets. Whatever your favored method of cooking sh, it will probably work just ne with amberjack. So whats not to love here? Amberjack are usually willing to strike, they oer an incredibly spirited ght, and theyre a treat on your plate. Really, the only thing that could make them any better is if they didnt insist on living so far out in the Gulf. Well, guess what? Nothings perfect.

Page 13 August 7, 2014 My faithful readers and I have been on some wild rides together over the years. From troubleshooting computer problems (that one ended with the sage advice to consult an expert) to discussing the proper way to cook eagle (that one started with dont), every week is an adventure. Heck, every day at Peace River Wildlife Center is an adventure. We never know what will walk, crawl, slither, y, or be carried through the door next. But thanks to a recent experience, I know what I hope to never see. Some friends and I recently went to see the superhero lm Guardians of the Galaxy. OK, maybe not so much friends as my family, who will deign to be seen with me in public periodically, and one poor girl from work who I can only assume feared for her job if she declined my invitation. I know I am no movie critic, but I feel eminently qualied to discuss this particular movie because I am an expert on many aspects of it. The stars are a machine gun-wielding raccoon and an awesome s music soundtrack. There may have been one or two other characters in there as well, but they were pretty superuous to the plot as I see it. My husband and daughter generally spend two hours at an event like this pointing out that the heros cape is the wrong shade, the damsels hair is too short, and the villains voice is too manly. (Or was it that the cape was too short, the hair the wrong shade and there were too many villains in one episode?) Luckily for me, I have never read a comic book I always thought all those pictures got in the way of the story. Coming in unfettered by expectations, I am there to be entertained. And Guardians of the Galaxy did not fail me. I laughed, I cried, I danced in my seat. (Not necessarily in that order.) Most of all, the movie serves as a warning to society: Do not arm your raccoons with automatic weapons. I might go so far as to say, dont avail them of any repower. These are highly resourceful creatures and they do not need our assistance in the inevitable over throw that will put their species in power over our own. Or was that the apes? Sometimes I get movie plots a little jumbled. Planet of the Apes meets Guardians of the Galaxy meets The Smurfs. (Spoiler alert) They all have sentient animals brandishing weapons and blue people running amok. One of my recent patients is the poster child for exactly why we do not want to give raccoons any more of an advantage. A newborn raccoon was kicked out or fell from her den in a tree. She was found to have an abdominal hernia that we attempted to repair via surgery with little hope of a positive outcome. This baby was dubbed Elle due to the L-shaped scar on her belly. Fast-forward a few short weeks and Elle is thriving. She has been weaned from the bottle and is eating out of a dish. She and her adopted siblings have been moved to an outdoor habitat to get ready for release, and although she is a week younger than they are, she outweighs each of them. If one tiny newly born member of this species can prove to be that resilient, I would hate to think what could happen if raccoons become procient with rearms. My advice is for everyone to go see Guardians of the Galaxy so we can all agree how vital it is that we keep our weapons out of their reach.

Page 14 August 7, 2014 Photo providedIs it time for the Gulf redsh stock to be assessed? AROUND CHARLOTTE HARBOR CAPT. RALPH ALLEN The quota conundrum The following is a species-by-species rundown of recent happenings, rumors and a little blatant speculation regarding some of our most popular species of sh and their management by the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council.AMBERJACKAmberjack season opened last Friday after a closed season which included all of June and July. In theory, amberjack season is open for the other ten months each year, but theres a pesky catch: amberjack is classied as overshed and to rebuild the stock the Gulf Council has established a total allowable catch for amberjack in the Gulf of Mexico each year. During any year, if the catch limit is reached the Gulf Council closes the season for the remainder of that calendar year. Additionally, if recre ational anglers somehow catch more than their limit in a given year, the amount of the overage is subtracted from the following years quota. Since landings estimates often lag real time by several months, its possible to signicantly overrun a quota before the numbers are tallied and shing is actually shut down. This happened last year to the tune of 267,488 pounds of amberjack, or approximately 23 percent of the allowable catch for 2013. So, to balance the amber jack books, the Gulf Council must now reduce the Gulf-wide recreational harvest of amberjack this year by the amount of overage on last years harvest. To gure out where were at this year, biologists are currently doing the math to calculate the estimated landings so far in 2014. Council sta is being care fully tight-lipped, but unocial word on the street is that amberjack season is probably going to be closed sometime before the end of this month. So, if you want to land an amberjack, you better get oshore quick.TRIGGERFISHAnglers on Floridas Southwest coast usually catch triggersh as bycatch while targeting snapper or other more wellknown reef sh. However, in other portions of the Gulf of Mexico, triggersh are highly prized and are specically targeted by anglers who know that these odd-looking creatures put up a great ght, and that they are one of the nest eating sh in the Gulf. Like amberjack, triggersh are classied as overshed, and the Gulf Council controls their recreational harvest with an annual Gulf-wide harvest limit. As was the case with amberjack, we exceeded our annual quota for triggersh last year even though the shery was closed in federal waters on Oct. 15, 2013. In for triggersh last year even though the Page 15 August 7, 2014 Photos providedTriggersh are classied as overshed. Part of the reason is because they are so tasty. Notice here how the sh is lleted from the tail to head. Kyle Martin with a 25-pound amberjack. The season recently opened.fact, we really, really exceeded our limit during 2013 to the tune of an 82 percent overage, which must now be subtracted from the allowable catch for 2014. If you take away 88 percent of a years quota, not much is left for the following year. Making matters much worse, shery managers werent able to conrm the 2013 overage until the spring of 2014. And it wasnt until May this year that they closed the harvest of triggersh in federal waters. Gulf anglers probably caught more than the remaining allowable triggersh harvest for 2014 during the four-plus months that the season was open, meaning that were likely already looking at the need to reduce the allow able harvest for 2015 to make up the dierence. Adding to the mess, Florida and other Gulf states did not close the harvest of triggersh in their nearshore state waters, where sh are still being landed right now, and sh landed in state waters do count towards the Gulf Councils allow able Gulf-wide harvest. Numbers will be crunched in the coming months, but its very possible that weve already caught all of next years sh. That means the season might not open at all in federal waters in 2015 unless something unexpected occurs. If the season does open next year, its likely to only be open for a very short time.REDFISHRedsh? In federal waters? Yes, the biggest redsh the adult brood stock which produces all the redsh we chase in the estuaries are found oshore in federal waters of the Gulf. Weve heard little about federal management of redsh in recent years primarily because nothing much has changed in this arena since all harvesting of redsh in federal waters was banned in the Gulf in 1988. That closure was put in place after commercial purse seiners decimated the brood stocks to feed the craze for blackened redsh. Breeder-size redsh have enjoyed complete protection from harvest ever since, much to the satisfaction of most recreational anglers. However, from time to time, there have been rumblings about opening a federal redsh shery in the Gulf, and a clue that this may be happening surfaced when a preliminary schedule of stock assessments for the coming years was recently released by the Gulf Council. The schedule calls for a full-blown benchmark assessment for the Gulf redsh stock to be under taken in 2016. It seems unlikely that this very expensive and time-consuming, analysis would be scheduled unless someone somewhere thinks that the oshore redsh shery could be opened. This possibility should send a chill down the spine of every coastal angler in the Gulf of Mexico who catches redsh. Stay tuned. Next week: More federal shery info. Lets go shing!Capt.

Page 16 August 7, 2014 As a local paddleboarder, I have seen the sport start to really take o in our area. Im not surprised. Its a lot of fun, but guided experiences are always recommended for beginner paddlers. Standing up on the board is the easy part; learning how to steer the board is a little bit more dicult. Once youre standing, your body is a sail, and the lighter you are the harder it is to navigate in the wind. Tips and tricks from a professional go a long way when learning how to paddle. Sharing knowledge of paddleboarding helps to keep the public safe. As with any other watersport, knowing the basics of paddle boarding ensures a great time for everyone enjoying the sport and the beach. Paddleboarding is a mostly unregulated watersport. However, there are a few local and federal laws regarding boards. For example the U.S. Coast Guard has declared paddleboards vessels, which requires paddlers to have a life jacket on the board. Currently, Sarasota County bans the use of paddleboards in the swimming and surf areas of the public beaches. Lifeguards on duty are responsible for the enforcement of this rule. But things might change soon. The county is considering opening up a portion of the swim zone to the public for use of launching paddleboards. The county is also asking for the public to provide opinions on whether or not vendors should be allowed to rent paddleboards on Sarasota County beaches. This could include Manasota and Blind Pass beaches in Englewood. All beachgoers should consider the following issues regarding this request from Sarasota County. First of all, there are two separate issues being discussed. The current rule does not ban paddleboards from the beach. It does limit their use of space and interaction with other beach patrons. This means that a paddleboarder has to walk her board out of the swim area to launch and stay out of the buoys when paddling. There is also no law requiring leashes to be worn. A leash is an ankle strap that keeps the board within several feet of the paddler. While some paddleboarders view leashes as an inconvenience, currently beachgoers are at risk of an inexperienced paddler falling o of their board and having it collide with other people or the shoreline. Allowing paddleboard rentals by beach vendors is a separate issue that Sarasota County is proposing to the public. There are several things to look at here. Do we want to commercialize our beaches and allow vendors in an unregulated industry? Anyone can rent paddleboards. Education in the sport keeps the paddler and other beach goers safe. Paddleboarding is an amazing experience, but beginners need guidance. Peoples safety is at risk from inexperienced paddlers, especially in a crowded beach area. Since paddleboarding is not regulated, there are no existing rules for Sarasota County to rely on. There is a divide in the paddleboarding community regarding the regulation of the industry. Some companies prefer the lack of regulation, but many professionals in the industry are noting serious safety concerns due to the negli gence of other rental operations. There are several certication organiza tions that have developed safety guidelines for paddleboarding, such as World Paddle Association and PaddleFit. However, there is no rule requiring companies to follow these guidelines. In an unregulated industry, anyone can open up shop. Certications are not required. The public should be aware of these important issues, as they aect all beach users. As a local business owner, I can see both sides of this issue. As a local resident and paddler, I encourage each of you to let your voice be heard. Attend the meeting and tell Sarasota County what you want to see on our local beaches. The meeting will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12th, at the Nokomis Community Center (234 E. Nippino Trail, Nokomis).Nicole Miers-Pandol is owner of SUP Englewood, a touring paddleboard company servicing Sarasota and Charlotte counties. Explore our Gulf Coast islands with SUP Englewood.

Page 17 August 7, 2014 Its time to catch up and x all the things Ive worn out from shing so much this year. 2014 has been a good year, and Im praying it stays that way awhile. Its anyones guess what will happen between red tides, storms, politics, our crazy weather and the crazier-yet world. We have to just play the cards we are dealt. My boat has held up well for the hard rides its conquered. In fact, its a lot stronger than I am anymore. I put a few scratches on the nice new paint Russell Clim from Advanced Marine sprayed last spring, so Ill have to visit him with more money sometime soon. The Evinrude 200 H.O. I bought almost two years ago has been awesome. Its the perfect match for my 23 Dorado. It has plenty of power, light weight and good fuel economy what more could I ask for? Shes almost ready for her 900-hour checkup, but Luke Clim is very busy right now. My Loadmaster trailer is an antique ; shes needs some new wheels and TLC but still gets the job done. Dons Trailer has kept her going for a reasonable fee. Under new ownership, Stump Pass Marina has improved and looks much better. They are constantly improving still. Abels Marine is the place I go to get things done right the rst time. Top-drawer business and people, and they can identify and solve boat problems eciently. And its time to go see Ryan at Omani to redo my T-top canvas. Its been a few years; time sure passes fast these days. Last time I had it re-done I went to a lighter o-white color, which really helps with the heat. Dark blue looked pretty, but I fried when sitting up top. Maintaining your vessel is not the most enjoyable aspect of being a boat owner, but its necessary. After a bunch of trips, it takes money, time and eort to put things back shipshape. It is wonderful to play with boats but it takes serious money to keep them up. Many times clients ask me what boat I would buy if I won the lottery. I laugh and tell them Id charter and enjoy the ride! Boats, like all females, require attention, time, and regular maintenance if you expect a good relationship. We caught a lot of sh on those trips, so its time to replace the line on most of my reels, too. Fortunately the nice folks I visited with at ICAST from Cortland oered to give me a break on their new high-quality Master Braid lines I like so much. I know Im doing a lot of name-dropping. On one hand, it may seem tacky to plug those that help us. But on the other, I know these are businesses that go out of their way to help their customers. So thank you to every one of them for helping, and to you, our dedicated readers, remember to take care of those that take care of us. Its hot, so Im going to be xing everything up between trips. Opening day of snook season is September 1st, right around the corner. I might even want to take the rig up to our Florida Outdoor Writers Association convention at Plantation on Crystal River next month. This is a special place that I got to play around back in the s while in high school, before everyone moved up there. It was so special that some famous baseball player and sh erman named Ted Williams even retired there. I never got to sh with him, but I did see him around a few times. The waters are unbelievable; if you havent visited, you should. Crystal-clear spring-fed rivers are treats. They have a great seatrout and redsh bite as well. You can catch trout and bass in the same waters sometimes. I used to catch some nice snook and tarpon up there too. In the winter the waters steam up into a spooky fog. You can see the treeline above but everything else is ghostly shadows. Scallops are still in season, so I want to get few if the weather allows. They keep us busy for the conference, and the locals want to showcase their beautiful area too. Ill try to stay a few days longer if I can swing it. Ill be anxious to see how things go with that red tide mess out in the Gulf. It popped up fast, and in such an unusual area. Its time to be watching the tropics, just in case. We have been very lucky, but the tenth anniversary of Hurri cane Charley is less than a week away. Things can change fast, so be ready. Charleys winds were so strong they stripped our mangroves of leaves. It was weird to see branches but no leaves for the rst year or so. The islands almost look normal now. Hopefully we wont see that again, at least not for a while.Capt. Van Hubbard is a highly respected outdoor writer and shing guide.

Page 18 August 7, 2014 First o, if you have a boat for sale, I hope youre looking to upgrade, not giving up the sport of shing completely. Either way, when the time comes to sell your boat, there are some things that you really need to look at in order to make sure you get a fair value without pricing yourself out of the market. The one thing I notice more than ever is that people believe their boat is worth a lot more than it actually is. You have to realize that just because your boat has aftermarket toys and amenities, they dont necessarily make the boat itself worth more money. I am learning this as I go through the process of getting my boat cleaned up and ready for the market. I have done my research and looked at the prices that some people want for their boat its unreal. When you sit down and compare asking prices to Kelly Blue Book values, you will be shocked. I am nding out that when it comes to used boats, banks dont like to even write loans for models more than a couple years old. You have to take that into consideration, because if a buyer cant get nancing theyll have to pay cash. Some nance companies may be willing to write those types of loans, but theyll usually require a large down payment and better credit score. All of these factors narrow the window of possible candi dates to buy your older boat. Im pricing my boat under that of the other boats on the market that are smaller and have less horsepower. I have some of the amenities on my boat to help it sell, and if I wanted to wait for the perfect buyer I know I could get more money. But I have to be realistic in the fact that I need it gone by a specic time in order to not go too long without a boat. If all goes well, I can have a new one waiting to be picked up while the old one is being towed out of the driveway. Advertising your boat can be the toughest thing of all. You may put it out in some boat magazine and eld a number of calls from people who cant aord it or will try to lowball you. The best way to sell a boat is still word of mouth. If you have taken care of your equipment and kept everything looking good and well-maintained, you should have no trouble getting it sold. You should also have enough condence in your boat to be able to sell it to someone you know. I keep all the receipts for my boat when I have work done on it. This helps validate my price and shows that I have put the time in to keep it properly maintained something that goes a long way with a potential buyer. If I am the one looking to buy a used boat, I always ask if the seller has kept the maintenance receipts. For example, a water pump should be changed out about every 18 months. If the seller has the receipts to show that, I feel much more condent in making an oer on that boat. It shows me that the owner has taken care of it and more than likely enjoyed his time on that boat. Dont be quick to undercut your own price. Once you decide on a number, leave it there until you hear what someone has to oer. I have looked at many boats in my day, and have had salespeople willing to slash the price before I even knew if I was seriously interested in that particular boat. That does nothing but send immediate danger signs to the person looking to buy it. If you are condent that your boat is truly worth the number you are asking, wait to hear what they may oer. If your price is fair, they may give you what you are asking. No boat buyer wants to think they overpaid. As a seller, you dont want to feel like you gave your boat away. You have to be realistic in your approach to selling a boat and to what the current market will bear. For me, I believe I have set my boat at a great number and expect to get what I list it for. As a matter of fact, I have two people waiting for me to actually be ready to part with it so they can have a shot at buying it. I know what I still owe on the boat, I know what I paid for it, I know what I need to be able to put down on a new boat, I know what I added to it and spent on mainte nance. With all those factors in mind, I have a very real price to move my boat when I need to. Those are just some of the things that I am looking at trying to sell my boat. Staying in touch with the dealer, if you are looking to buy a new boat, is always a good idea so you can know exactly when to move your old boat with the new coming in. Just be realistic in your approach to selling your boat and you can sell it for a good price when the time comes.Greg Bartz is a tournament bass fisherman based in Lakeland.

He knows its part of the job. John is owner of Clean & Go Fuel Service. His job is to purify and filter fuel. Its pretty simple, in theory. Lets say someone only uses their RV three month out of the year. That means its sitting idle for 9 months, including the fuel and additives. Sometimes, it can be a gooey mess, and thats where John comes in. From boats, RVs to large generators, John gets the goo out. He has clients like Gasparilla Marina, Cape Haze Marina, Abels Marine and many others including area hospitals. I go where the work is, says John. No job too small, and none too big. Yet. The most memorable job John has taken in recent years was one at McDill Air Force Base. After submitting a bid to the base, John forgot about it. Four months later, he was told he got the gig. His job was to clean out large generators that were brought back from overseas. John was told they were for military use, but were not working correctly. The job turned out to be quick for John. He left at 3 a.m. for the base. He was back home for dinner, and the military has clean generators. The weirdest part was all the security checks you had to go through, says John. In fact, I was told I got the gig because I was the only one who passed a background check. Whether you need your boats or RV fuel cleaned or pumped out, John can help. If he can handle hospitals and other government agencies, boats and RVs should be no problem at all. Clean & Go Fuel Service is primarily a mobile business.

REDUCED!! Photo providedBeached false killer whales. Of navy sonar and beached whalesKen Balcomb had been studying whales for decades by March 15, 2000, work that often involved encounters with marine mammals stranded onshore. But that morning a whale beached itself alive just 100 yards from his home and research station on Great Abaco Island in the Bahamas a Cuviers beaked whale, a deep-water denizen rarely observed and even more rarely stranded. As Joshua Horwitz writes in his engrossing new book War of the Whales: A True Story, Balcomb was both intrigued and concerned but that whale was just the beginning. All that day, phone calls and radio messages streamed in from four Bahamian islands, reporting strandings of other Cuviers as well as Blain villes beaked whales, minke whales and an Atlantic spotted dolphin (dolphins are small whales), some alive and others dying or dead. Balcomb soon realized he was in the middle of what turned out to be the largest multispecies whale stranding ever recorded. Like any scientist, he burned to understand why it had happened. The next day, he was on a reconnaissance ight in a small plane above the 3-mile-deep, 140-mile-long Grand Bahama Canyon, around which the islands where the strandings occurred cluster. The underwater abyss, home to colonies of beaked whales that have lived there for millennia, was where he conducted much of his research, and he knew that something had gone horribly wrong inside the canyon. From the plane, Balcomb saw a U.S. Navy destroyer. He knew that destroyers rarely sailed alone, that they usually ran escort for a full battle group. So where were the other ships? Maybe one person in many millions would grasp what that destroyers presence might mean. But Balcomb was that one: Decades before, he had served in the Navy in a top-se cret project, the Sound Surveillance System a radical innovation in antisubmarine warfare that enabled the U.S. Navy to maintain a critical advantage over the Soviets for 25 years. During World War II, U.S. geophysicist Maurice Ewing discovered an underwater deep sound channel where sound waves can be transmitted for thousands of miles. The military perfected methods for tracking submarines using those channels to transmit low-frequency active sonar. Sonar, of course, had been perfected in the animal kingdom for eons, and among the species that rely most on biosonar are beaked whales and other deep-diving whale species, who use it to navigate and hunt prey in the dark ocean depths. Balcomb came to suspect that the Navys extremely high-decibel sonar tests, which had already been blamed for harming marine mammals elsewhere, had caused the disaster in the canyon. Proving that cause and eect, and making the Navy take responsibility for it, took years. Joining Balcomb in that eort, among a host of others, was the books other main char acter, Joel Reynolds. A crusading lawyer for the National Resources Defense Council, he was fresh o a successful eort to protect the calving grounds of gray whales in the Sea of Cortez when he came onto the case. War of the Whales is a fascinating, colorful, deeply researched chronicle not only of what happened in Grand Bahama Canyon in 2000 and its aftermath, but of the intricate connec tions between military and scientic research, of the wonders and perils of the resulting tech nology, and of the frustrations and triumphs of our legal system. It is also carefully balanced; this is not a simplistic whales good/military evil recounting. Horwitz draws the reader into the history of submarine warfare, which was also the birthing ground for marine biology as a distinct area of science the military learned the concept of sonar from the whales. He is adept at explaining the scientic and technological details involved, and just as skillful at painting vivid portraits of a large cast of characters. Theres oceanographer Walter Munk, a playful pixie of a man with an incalculably high IQ, whose resume includes making marine weather predic tions that ensured the success of the D-Day invasion and being one of the rst scientists to gather evidence of global climate change. And theres Diane Ketten, the whale coroner, whom Horwitz describes leaving a New Years Eve party on Cape Cod when a sperm whale strands nearby to climb inside its head to collect samples, still wearing her velvet party dress. Among the rst on the scene in the Bahamas, shell nd in the stranded whales ear bones, a particular scientic passion of hers, essential evidence. War of the Whales is a ripping real-life yarn well told, but its also meant to raise our awareness of a larger problem. The Grand Bahama Canyon incident was hardly an isolated one. Ocean noise pollution has doubled in each of the last six decades, and military exercises are just one source, along with commercial shipping, oil and gas exploration and recreational boating all of them imperiling cetaceans and other marine creatures in ways we are far from fully understanding. On July 18, despite objections by environmental groups and others, the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management announced its approval for the use of sonic cannons by energy companies, as the entire Eastern Seaboard is opened to oil and gas exploration for the rst time since the 1980s. Environmental campaigns, Horwitz writes, have a lot in common with the Napoleonic Wars. Theyre prolonged and punishing oenses fought on multiple fronts, with success often determined by the strategic alliances you forge and the foot soldiers you mobilize. And they cost a lot of money.

Fort Myers ...................239-322-7089 Provided by Dave Nielsen Fishfinder wars Piloting his 20-foot BassCat over the murky Potomac River, Rick Kortlang had a sweeping view of the bottom: He pointed out a line of rock, with what he said were probably catsh swimming just above. In shallower water, he saw a patch of bait sh, making it a good bet that largemouth bass were lurking. Kortlang, a 58-year-old retiree, was scouting shing holes this month with a little help from his shnder. Its all about the toys, said Kortlang, who shes in the area three times a week and enters local bass tournaments about once a month for fun and bragging rights. Kortlang isnt the only one seeking an underwater edge. The companies that make GPS-based shnders like his are locked in court battles, trading accusations that the others have copied the very features that have brought many of these machines to the lure-dangling masses including clearer displays, downscan views that let anglers dierentiate between rocky and sandy bottoms, and technologies for monitoring things that move underwater. One big battle is over so-called side-view technologies that let a shnder display not just whats under the boat but in the water around it. More than a half-dozen U.S. patent-in fringement suits have been led in the past year between the ve top makers of marine electronics, including three complaints lodged in June and one in July. One is scheduled for trial in August. Theres been a bit more of a competitive rivalry in recent years, said Jonathan Ho, an analyst with William Blair & Co. in Chicago, who covers makers Flir Systems Inc. and Garmin Ltd. You want to have the leading technology so you can displace the other players. The battle for market share is giving shing its own version of the smartphone wars. Flirs Raymarine sued and was sued by Furuno Electric Co. Furuno also has sued Navico, owner of the Lowrance and Simrad lines, which in turn has sued Raymarine. Garmin was sued by Navico, Johnson Outdoors and Furuno. Much is at stake. There were almost 46 million people who shed in the U.S. last year, said Frank Peterson, chief executive ocer of Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation in Alexandria, Va.. Licensed anglers generate more than $46 billion in retail sales, according to the American Sportshing Association. In 2011, the most recent gures that are avail able, anglers spent $469.8 million on depth nders, shnders and other electronics, according to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. The latest shnders which start at less than $100 and run to $5,000 for a 12-inch LCD screen with echo sounder, radar and an engine-performance monitor are genera tions removed from expensive depth sounders that represented the bottom as a simple ashing light. They give even ski owners the kind of bottom-mapping prowess that was once limited to the likes of shipwreck hunters and the military. Devices that provide side views have been around only a few years but are already musthaves, said David Precht, vice president of editorial and communications at B.A.S.S. LLC, which runs the Bassmaster Classic and other professional bass tournaments around the U.S. You dont have to drive over a school of sh to nd them, Precht said. You could just drive along and see dozens of yards out. Side-view models are particularly eective in shallower waters such as rivers or near ocean shores. Theyre catching on at a time when bass shing has been elevated into a national spectator event with championships for high schoolers and tournaments on ESPN2 that have helped turn shermen including Kevin VanDam and Skeet Reese into millionaire celebrities. Theres even fantasy bass shing: A spot on the B.A.S.S. website lets spectators win prizes guessing which pros will have the biggest catches. All that has some equipment manufacturers trying their luck in lakes and rivers. Raymarine and Simrad, both traditionally geared to salt water shing, have expanded into freshwater. Humminbird and Lowrance products are the dominant devices for freshwater shing, said VanDam, who counts Humminbird among his ocial sponsors. When VanDam started competitive shing 24 years ago, he had only a rotary-asher depth nder on his 18-foot boat. These days, hes got a 21-foot berglass boat with a 250horsepower engine Bloomberg News In 2011, anglers spent nearly $470M other electronicsget underway T:7 ICall 941-4293110__ -to list your boat today!NMI67 V, T 'F75:.Sw177.I L !dd4*M4 X71pigy .rr rti All.

Electronics-wise, the skys the limit, said VanDam, 46, a four-time winner of the Bassmaster Classic. Manufacturers see a growth market in devices for the boat, much as navigation systems have taken o in automobiles. Garmin introduced new models early this year to pump up sales in its marine division, where a 7 percent increase to $222.9 million in sales last year helped to oset a 13 percent decline in its auto and mobile division. Furuno, based in Hyogo, Japan, got about 80 percent of its $700 million in sales last year from marine equipment. Flirs Raymarine unit generated $163.2 million in sales for its Wilsonville, Ore.-based parent company in the same period. Navico is closely held. Marine electronics accounted for 58 percent of the $426.5 million in sales last year for Racine, Wisc.-based Johnson Outdoors, and almost all its prot. Competition in this business is primarily focused on the quality of sonar imaging and display, easy to use graphical interfaces as well as the integration of mapping and GPS technology, Johnson Outdoors said in its annual report. The companies are developing even more features, like cameras and entertainment systems, said William Blairs Ho, who has a market outperform rating on Flir and an outperform rating on Garmin. Johnson Outdoors, in a complaint led July 18 with the U.S. International Trade Commis sion in Washington, said it spent ve years developing its side-viewing devices, which have garnered awards and become Hummin birds most important and protable products since they were rst sold in 2005. Garmins echoMap and GPSMAP sonar displays and other products are copying the technology, said Johnson Outdoors, which is seeking to block import of the products to the U.S. In a separate legal complaint against Garmin, Navico says it spent more than six years and millions of dollars at its Tulsa, Okla., facility to develop its downview technology which it says generates sharp, picture-like images of things like sh, sunken trees and rocks. While other companies license the tech nology, Garmin has simply incorporated the inventions into its own devices without permission, Navico claims. In 2012, Navico says in its complaint, Garmin hired seven former Navico engineers, including the three whose names were on the patents, opening a new oce in Tulsa. Garmin in 2014 released new models that included downview technologies, Navico alleges. Wes Owen, a spokesman for Schahausen, Switzerland-based Garmin, said the rm wouldnt comment on litigation. In a July 29 ITC ling, Garmin denied incorporating any of Navicos technology into its products and said the three inventors werent involved in devel oping the products at the heart of the case. Shane Harrison, a Raymarine spokesman, Je Kauzlaric, a spokesman for Furunos U.S. unit, and Pat Penman, a spokeswoman for Johnson Outdoors, said the companies dont comment on litigation. Andrew Golden, a Navico spokesman, didnt comment. Some of the latest cases are already resolved. Navico dropped its eorts to block imports of Raymarine products made in China, and Furuno is no longer ghting with Garmin. Furuno is still seeking an import ban on Raymarine products in a case scheduled for trial beginning Aug. 25 at the ITC. Fish still have a ghting chance, say VanDam and Reese. They and other anglers say the latest underwater spy gear doesnt give them an unfair advantage the devices just help them to avoid wasting time. In the televised Bassmaster tournaments, shermen have a deadline to nd the ve biggest sh they can reel in. Fish are kept alive in a tank, weighed with ceremony and then returned to the water. The trick for anglers is nding locations that might interest a bass, such as grass, an under ground tree or pile of concrete. The sh rely on sight, smell and taste, so it takes skill to outwit them, Reese said. Even though they are tools to locate sh, they dont help you catch, said Reese, 45, the 2009 winner of the Bassmaster Classic. I dont use it to look for sh most of the time Im looking for the habitat. Kortlang, who lives in Springeld, Va., said he has been shing the Potomac since he was 6. He knows where to look for bass depending on the time of year or phase of the moon. Even so, when it comes to his regular outings or the monthly tournaments held by Potomac Bassmasters of Virginia, hes not giving up his two shnders, which he gures ran him a combined $2,300. One sits at the front of the boat and the other by the steering wheel. Each Lowrance model renders the bottom in videogame clarity, showing colorful inverted Vs (what he thought were catsh, or maybe carp) or a round cluster of dots (the likely baitsh). Its just another tool, like the shing pole or the boat, to nd what youre looking for, Kortlang said. Just because you nd them doesnt mean theyll bite. Even though they are they dont help you catch. Most of the time Im looking for habitat. Pro bass angler Skeet Reese =-.Call 941-429--3-110,to list your boat today!_-`1 _\ ImoVj iAffi-M4zirT 711IP*OCEAN

Page 26 August 7, 2014 Photo provided What zone do you hunt? Deer hunters, pay attention: Your season might be a bit dierent this year. If your hunting spot was in the northern portion of Zone A, you might be hunting in Zone C now. If you hunt in southern Manatee County, Sarasota County, southwest DeSoto County, west Charlotte County, southeast Okeechobee County, south St. Lucie County, Martin County or north Palm Beach County, you now have later fall hunting season dates than what youre used to, because the boundary line between the two zones has been adjusted. The boundary line used to be State Road 70, but hunters had noted, and recent biological surveys have conrmed, that deer living in the above-men tioned areas have a breeding period that occurs later than that of most of the deer in Zone A. These deer actually have a breeding period more in line with deer living in Zone C. It is because of this that a number of local hunters asked the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to move the boundary line between hunting zones A and C, so that all or parts of these counties would instead be included in Zone C, which has the later hunting season dates that better align with when the rut occurs in these areas. The new boundary line between hunting zones A and C begins at the Gulf of Mexico and runs northeast through Charlotte Harbor and up the Peace River until it intersects with S.R. 70. The line then follows S.R. 70, running east until it meets U.S. 441 north of Lake Okeechobee. It then follows U.S. 441 south, where it proceeds around the eastern shore of Lake Okeechobee. The line then turns o U.S. 441 and onto S.R. 80 and runs just a few miles before turning east and following County Road 880, running just a few miles before joining back up with U.S. 98/441/S.R. 80/Southern Boulevard until it reaches the Atlantic Ocean. This new line separating hunting zones A and C aects only the fall hunting seasons. Spring turkey season dates remain unaected and will continue as they have been. In other words, spring turkey season south of S.R. 70 will continue to open the rst Saturday in March, while north of S.R. 70 in the rest of the state, the season will continue to open the third Saturday of March. The daily bag limit for turkeys during the spring and fall hunting seasons has been increased to two on private lands. However, you may still take only one turkey per day on wildlife management areas, and in Holmes County, the daily and season limits remain one turkey during the spring, with no fall season. In the rest of the state, the fall and spring season bag limits have not changed and are still two. To learn more about deer and view regulations for the entire state, visit MyFWC.com/Deer.

Page 27 August 7, 2014 August and September are traditionally slower months in terms of numbers in Southwest Florida. There are fewer people visiting here than during the winter months, meaning there is less direct spending owing into the local economy. Be that as it may, I like this time of year. You should, too. You can tell its this time of year just by looking around. There are fewer lines everywhere. Fewer people out on the water during the afternoons. Restaurants oer specials. So do golf courses, and even some charter captains not all, some. Of course, theres the rain and the humidity, but thats OK with me. The way I can tell its this time of year is by the copies of WaterLine left over at the places Josh and I drop o each week. Its simple. During the winter, places like Bass Pro Shops can go through hundreds each day. But during this time of year, maybe hundreds a week. Thats just the way it is. It took me a while to get used to. I remember walking into Berts Bar in Matlacha one day and noticed a few copies of the previous weeks Water Line left on the counter. I felt almost oended. But thats just how it is down here for many of us. Dont get me wrong, theres plenty of work to be done just not as much as in the busier winter months. With that said, why not use any free time to get out shing? Or shooting, if thats your thing. Ive decided to go after gag grouper. Ive caught reds, blacks and Goliaths, but not a gag. It would also be nice to get out on the kayaks and target some smaller blacktip sharks they are tasty when cleaned the right way. The last blacktip I caught was just 3 feet long, but it took me and my kayak for a little ride down the Myakka River. There are plenty of species out there right now. Just read through some of the columns and shing reports in this edition. If you like inshore, sh are biting. If you like oshore, sh are denitely biting. But theres also the freshwater aspect of things. One of my favorite things to do is to sh the local freshwater canals. And why not? On any given day you can catch Mayan cichlids, bass, tilapia, bluegill and a few others. You can even catch saltwater species like tarpon, redsh and snook, that can live happily in brackish water. So thats it. Fishing or shooting, take the time to get out there this time of year if you can. There are fewer crowds, and less business, so take advantage of it. Im o to pursue my gag, blacktip and canal snook which Ill let go because its not snook season yet (refer to page 7). And wherever you go, be sure to send in some photos to Editor@WaterLineWeekly.com.

Page 28 August 7, 2014 RARE LOBSTER FOUND AT PUBLIXFLAGLER BEACH, Fla. (AP) A rare yellow lobster nearly wound up on a dinner plate after being delivered in a Publix grocery stores daily seafood shipment. Publix manager Church Jones told the Daytona Beach NewsJournal the lobster arrived at his Flagler Beach store on July 24th. Store employees soon realized theyd received a rare catch: According to the University of Maines Lobster Institute, the odds of nding a yellow lobster are one in 30 million. Publix workers contacted several centers for marine wildlife but were told they didnt have the necessary cold-water tanks to house the lobster. The newspaper reports an animal rights activist purchased the lobster about ve days later. Marybeth Jeitner told ABC News the lobster was sent to the Sea Coast Science Center in New Hampshire.MASSIVE RED TIDE MOVING SOUTHA huge red tide bloom 80 miles long and 40 miles wide o the Hernando County coast is moving south, according to FWC. Late last week, researchers with Mote Marine Laboratories headed north to learn more about the bloom. A team of four researchers gathered data and water samples from 12 locations ahead of the bloom between Sarasota and Hernando. Researchers say they took several samples at each stop from the surface all the way down to about 100 feet deep. Then, scientists headed into the heart of the bloom where they saw the eects of the bloom. They did see some scattered sh, some larger sh Im not sure of the species at the moment. They saw discolored water, the characteristic dark brown water indicative of red tide. They did notice a little bit of respiratory irritation when they sat on station. And all this was at the one station farthest into the bloom, says Mote researcher Vince Lovko. Lovko says the data gathered will help scientists better predict the movement of the bloom on the surface and below the surface. A more detailed report on the bloom is expected but was not available at press time.CHINA WEAPONIZES FISHING BOATSChina has a new navy. It consists of hordes of shermen whose boats were tted with military-grade satellite navigation systems that link with the Chinese Coast Guard. The Beidou Satellite System is similar to the GPS location systems in the United States, but with a few extra functions. Chinas system comes with an alarm and short messaging system, which allows shermen to alert authorities and nearby vessels. Fishermen in Hainan are being encouraged to venture out into disputed waters, and with their satellite system theyre expected to report sightings of foreign ships. Chinas state-run Xinhua news agency stated the BDS will help establish a security system to protect shermen in Hainan province, and refer enced Chinas ongoing territorial conicts. It notes that by December 2013, more than 50,000 Chinese shing boats had installed the BDS system. Qi Chengye, a manager at BDStar Navigation which provides the BDS to 80 percent of Chinas shing ships, said the Chinese regime has been pushing the system forward. The Chinese government is giving large subsidies to encourage shermen to install BDS, Qi told Xinhua. The government pays for most of the cost of the client terminals, and gives shermen diesel subsidies according to the distance and frequency of their vessels heading out to sea, he said. FISH COLLECTOR GETS DIVE RAGEKAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) A Hawaii sh collector has been charged with terroristic threatening for pulling the air-supply regulator out of the mouth of an anti-aquarium-industry activist while they were both underwater. Prosecutors led the misdemeanor charge against Jay Lovell, West Hawaii Today reported July 31. The incident took place o West Hawaii when activist Renee Umberger and other divers approached Lovell while he was collecting aquarium sh to sell. Umberger and another diver lmed the incident. Its an appropriate charge, Umberger said after learning the complaint had been led. She said people have approached her since the incident to talk about their concerns about the sh collecting practice. Lovells brother Jim said the divers were disrupting the sh collectors work. It is very clear that Rene Umberger and her associates were responsible for this incident, Jim Lovell said in an email to West Hawaii Today. Fishermen o the Kona coast, where the confrontation occurred, account for 75 percent of the aquarium sh caught in Hawaii. Aquarium sh collecting is legal o Kona, but sherman must avoid certain places and collect only certain species. The incident occurred in Keawaiki Bay, where collecting is allowed.OYSTERSHUCKING RECORD SHATTEREDA Canadian team has managed to open 8,840 oysters in one hour at, beating the record set by a French team back in 2002. The 10-member team at the Tyne Valley Oyster Festival on Canadas Prince Edward Island had to meet strict criteria shucking the oysters with a knife, and without damaging the meat or surrounding tissue. The jubilant shuckers hugged and sprinkled beer over each other as Guinness Book of World Records adjudicator Philip Robertson announced theyd overtaken Frances achievement of 8,472 oysters, the Journal Pioneer reports. Judge Robertson kept the crowd in suspense as he read out the individual shucking scores of the Team Canada members before nally announcing it was Patrick McMurray who had pushed them over the nishing line with a personal total of 1,114 oysters opened in an hour. McMurray is a record-holder in his own right for opening 38 oysters in one minute, a record he set four years ago. Two other team members managed to open more than 1,000 oysters in the allotted hour.HAMMERHEAD VISITS BEACHGOERSA hammerhead shark shocked beachgoers last week in Navarre, Florida, when it swam right up to the shore, prompting terried swimmers to frantically ee from the water. And the man who caught it all on video, Dan Flynn, said the hectic scene was extraordinary. Ive seen sharks before but Ive never seen a shark get that close, he told ABC News. It was almost interacting with humans. From our vantage point, we could see the shark going towards a lady swimmer. And her back was to the shark, and she was unaware. You can hear people screaming in the video. I yelled, Get out of the water! Flynn, who lives in New Orleans, watched the scene unfold from the shing pier in Navarre while on vacation with his family. From above, he could see directly into the clear water. The shark was probably 10 feet long, he said. Someone just yelled shark and I started taping, he said. Flynn estimates that the shark got within 10 feet of the shore. It swam around for about 10 or 15 minutes, he said, before retreating back into the sea. Swimmers were spooked but wasted no time getting back into the water, he said.ALL YOU NEED IS CONFIDENCEThe sailing party was hopelessly lost on the open ocean.

The Sun Classified Page 10E/N/Cads.yoursun.netThursday, August 7, 2014 ZITSByJerryScott&JimBorgman GARFIELDByJimDavis FRESHLYSQUEEZEDByEdStein DILBERTByScottAdams REXM O R G ANByWoodyW i lsonandTerryBeatty MARYWORTHByKarenMoyandJoeGiellaDEAR DR. ROACH: I had a CT scan in September 2012, which conrmed my PCPs suspicion of diverticulitis. I was treated with Cipro and Flagyl. I had other infections in June 2013 and the following J anuary and March. I since have seen a colorectal specialist. She felt that the March infection was a recurrence of the one in January. She prescribed amoxicillin and scheduled a colonoscopy for mid-May. U nfortunately, I had another recurrence, so she cancelled the colonoscopy, saying it was too risky if I still had an infection. I just nished 10 days of cefuroxime and follow a low-residue diet. I still have cramping and pain before bowel movements, so I dont know if the infection has cleared. During any of these episodes I have not had a fever or blood in my stools, but my white blood cells are slightly elevated. I am at my wits end. I feel crummy when taking the meds, and I fear another infection at any time. I am active, 67 and otherwise in good health. I am open to surgery, but they say it is best to have it when you dont have an infection. The specialist feels this may be a chronic condition for me and surgery would be the solution, as infections will keep occurring. I cant have the colonoscopy if I still have an infection. Do I need to have the colonoscopy before surgery? Gi ven my history, do you think surgery is the way to go? Anon. ANSWER: Di verticula are small pouches in the bowel wall. Diverticulitis is the inammation of those pouches, and it is a potentially serious infection. Surgery is indicated for recurrent disease, but some surgeons recommend surgery after even a single episode, if the diverticula are in the most common part of the bowel, the sigmoid colon. Sur gery can be done even during infection; however, surgery has better results if the infection is cleared up. S till, I would recommend seeing a surgeon soon. S ometimes the surgeon does the colonoscopy in the operating room. DEAR DR. ROACH: R ecently, during a doctors visit, my doctor informed me that my triglycerides had increased from about 200 three months ago to 417. He prescribed fenobrate. I also take 40 mg of simvastatin daily. When I read the possible side effects of fenobrate, I was quite alarmed. These included: back pain, diarrhea, calf pain, chest pain, dark urine and coughing up blood. My doctor did indicate that I might get some cramps or joint soreness. My doctor also gave me a pamphlet outlining some changes in diet. Incidentally, my cholesterol is 159. C.A.S. ANSWER: A sudden increase in triglycerides suggests to me that the recent high reading you had may have been related to an imprudent meal immediately before getting the test done. I usually repeat the test prior to making medication changes. I would think about getting a recheck while keeping up with the diet from the pamphlet, which I am sure recommends keeping simple sugars and rened carbohydrates down. Trea tment for high triglycerides in someone with normal cholesterol is controversial. The data are mixed, and some experts r ecommend for and others against treatment with combination statin (like the simvastatin you are taking) and fenobrate. Although that list of side effects is indeed scary, according to the package insert the only side effect that occurred in 1 percent or more of people taking fenobrate (compared with the placebo group) are runny nose and abnormal liver tests in the blood. My experience is that the medication is generally we ll-tolerated. TO RE ADERS: Heart disease remains the No. 1 killer. The booklet on clogged heart arteries explains why they happen and what can be done to prevent clogging. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Roach No. 101, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

How do I take care of them? I dont want to do anything damaging without knowing. Thanks for your help! Ma rk in Wisconsin Mar k, great question! C ultured marble is not r eally marble, but is manmade to look like the real thing. It is pretty durable, but it does need to be taken care of. Here are some hints on how to do that: Never put anything hot directly on a counter. No hot pans, curling irons, etc. It might hurt the nish, depending on how hot the pan is! Use nonabrasive cleaners, or baking soda and w ater. Never use abrasive cleaners, like scouring powder, because they may mar the surface. Liquids like bleach or nail-polish remover can hurt it, so use caution. Small scratches can be lled in, so go to a home-improvement store for the right product to x the problem. HeloiseSmelly garbageDear Heloise: We walk our two schnauzers three times a day and always come home with a poop bag. Garbage is picked up twice a week, and storing the poop bags was pretty stinky. So, we got a plastic container with a tight lid and added about an inch of kitty litter in the bottom. Come garbage day, we dump the whole thing into our garbage bag, r ell the kitty litter, and we are good to go until the next garbage day. Christine W., via emailBottom of the jarDear Heloise: I hate trying to scrape the bottom of a jar to get the last bit of contents out, but I hate wasting it more. I now store almost-empty jars of mayonnaise, mustard, etc., on their sides. It makes getting to that last bit so much easier, and my hand isnt covered from sticking it way down in the jar. A Re ader, via emailHummingbird feedersDear Heloise: We have a few hummingbird feeders in our yard. They come apart and are easy to clean, except for the feeding holes where the birds stick their tongues. I have a very small bristle brush used to clean icing tips. It works perfectly to clean those small openings.

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: I just nished reading the letter from Pressured (April 23), the wife whose husband keeps track of how often he and his wife have had sex and his determination to have sex 100 times per year. S he was wondering if this is normal. I can tell her that my former husband thought we should have sex ve times a w eek. He kept a calendar of when we had sex that also included who initiated it. I explained to him that I was more than willing to have frequent sex, but that he also had to be an attentive, caring husband. O ur marriage counselor believed he was suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression and was probably a diagnosable narcissist. Surprise, surprise! He pronounced our marr iage counselor to be inept and divorced me. THE EX-MRS. DEAR EX: Thank you for writing. The saying men are from Mars, women are from V enus aptly applies to the r esponses I received from my readers about that letter. R ead on: DEAR ABBY: M ost guys may keep track of how often theyre having sex, although more likely its how long since the last time, or maybe how many times a w eek. But this guy is an idiot for letting his wife know that hes tracking it, let alone that he has a goal of 100 times. H opefully hes not procreating, just recreating in bed. Ab by I thought you knew men better. Fifty great versus 100 so-so times are you kidding? Surely you know the saying, Even bad sex is pretty good sex. We guys will take it any way, any how, anytime. For us, its all good, all the time. DAN IN IRVING, TEXAS DEAR ABBY: U nfortunately, my husband also likes to keep a running tab of our sexual frequency. It galls me. I saw a movie years ago in which a couple saw the same therapist and one tells the counselor, We NEVER have sex! We only do it three times a week. While the other says, We have sex ALL THE TIME! We do it three times a week! We must consider the other person and his or her needs, whether theyre emotional, sexual or physical. Emotional and physical are not necessarily the same. DENISE IN MICHIGAN DEAR ABBY: For most men, sex is just a little less important than breathing and eating as essential to our existence. Men are getting fed up with being deprived. I have often considered extramarital sexual pursuits, and I feel Id be justied in doing so. I know Im not alone. Me n have needs, and should have a right to share intimate relations with their wives. If not, we should be given the green light to fulll our needs elsewhere. JAMES IN KENTUCKY DEAR ABBY: I had to chuckle at Pressured. I have been married 20 years and have ve children. I gure my husband and I are intimate an average of 260 times a year. Needless to say, my husband greets me with a smile every day, and our marriage is rock solid.
