The sudden and tragic death of actor and comedian Robin Williams of an apparent suicide in his California home Monday cast a glaring spotlight on an often-misunderstood and maligned disease that claims tens of thousands of American lives each year. In a statement, Williams publicist revealed the 63-year-old Midwest native, who publicly shared his struggles with alcoholism and drug addiction, also had been battling severe depression a mood disorder that has been widely shown to increase the risk of suicide. One of the biggest risk factors for suicide is depression, said Dr. Henry Kurban, director of the Charlotte County Health Department. Once you can appreciate what the risk factors are for suicide, you can start screening for those risk factors. One way to do that, according to mental health professionals in Charlotte and Sarasota counties, is to teach people how to recognize the signs and symptoms of depression, and how to appropriately intervene if a friend or a loved one is suicidal. Earlier this year, through a grant from the Central Florida Behavioral Health Network, mental health providers in the region began to offer classes in Mental Health First Aid, an Suicide and depressionBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERActors death puts public face on private painSUICIDE | 6 WILLIAMS COMING UPFor an in-depth look at suicide and mental health, see our coverage in Sundays Sun.(Editors note: Christys usual Live like a Tourist column will return next Wednesday.)President George W. Bush and I wont be sharing our story of how we met and fell in love like those happy couples in When Harry Met Sally. First of all, were both already married. Second, weve never met. Our paths were supposed to cross more than once. Instead, fate/life/a series of ridiculous events intervened. The rst time our paths were set to cross was a warm, sunny day in 2001. George, as he likely would have insisted I call him, was scheduled to visit a school in Sarasota. Thats right, I was offered the chance to be with the president at Booker Elementary School on Sept. 11, 2001. But no. I had been working a lot of hours on several crime stories leading up to that day. I was physically and emotionally exhausted, and despite my young age at the time, I already knew how it worked when a politician/celebrity makes an appear ance. You stand around and wait. Then theres a few minutes when he appears in the same room, and then its over. I had too much work to do. I couldnt waste the day standing around for hours. Obviously, I didnt know what would happen in that classroom, or in New York City, Washington, D.C., or Shanksville, Pa. Obviously, I didnt know I would have been with the president on such a historically tragic day. Fast-forward to Aug. 13, 2004. Hurricane Charley slammed into our area the rst major hurricane to strike Florida since Andrew in 1992. The Category 4 storm beat up my two-door car, leaving me vehicle-less for a few days. The White House soon called the newspaper, asking for a reporter to escort President Bush on an aerial tour of Charlotte County. Awesome! Another opportunity to meet George. I cleared the background check (phew!) and arranged a ride with the photographer, who would be picking me up at my Punta Gorda apartment at 5 a.m. Now, I had no electricity and my cellphone was dying, thus there was no way to set an alarm clock. So I stayed awake again for yet another sleepless night. I played Uno with my dog (he cheats), drank caffeine and had dance parties in my living room delirious, but success ful ways to ght the urge to doze. At 4-something in the morning, I stood outside and waited for my ride. At 5-something, I waited. At 6-something, I waited. At 7-something, I waited and cursed. I nally reached the photographer by phone, which was difcult to do post-Charley when cellphone service was spotty at best, and I said, Where the (bleep) are you? He said, At the airport, where are you? Thats right, he forgot to pick me up, and I missed my second, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be with the president. Now I looked like the crazy person who blew off the president twice. So, Mr. President (which is what I call him instead of George, because we havent met yet, and thus he hasnt insisted on such casualness), Im sorry. Next time youre in Boca Grande, give me a call. Well grab a few beers and laugh about this. And Ill buy the rst two rounds to make up for my rst two missed meetings. Christy Feinberg is a senior writer/columnist for the Sun newspapers.

Left: Shane Forrester, a senior emergency-preparedness specialist with Florida Power & Light, explains the bells and whistles of FPLs mobile command center during a presentation for the media Tuesday in Punta Gorda. The center was stationed in Murdock after Hurricane Charley.PUNTA GORDA Ray Briggs will never forget what looked like an army of Florida Power & Light vehicles rolling into town the day after Hurricane Charley hit. It was 2,000, but it seemed like 10,000, the current Punta Gorda emer gency management director and re chief said Tuesday during an FPL-hosted presentation to the media at the Charlotte County Public Safety Building in Punta Gorda. The proverbial cavalry was here, and we certainly appreciated that. More than 1.1 million peo ple across Southwest Florida were without power after the devastating storm hit 10 years ago today, and 72,000 FPL customers remained without electricity a week later. Much of Charlotte County was in the dark. But not for long. As we reect on the devastation of 10 years ago, its important that we think of all the progress that weve made and the lessons that were learned, Briggs said. A lot of that has been in the form of relationships. In the city, we value that relationship with FPL. Community leaders and dedicated FPL workers helped to ensure all local residents had power within just a few weeks. But the electrical company has become more technologically advanced since then, and is continuing to build a stronger electrical system in this part of Florida. FPL Vice President of Distribution Operations Bryan Olnick said Charley taught the company a few things. As a company, weve spent $1.4 billion since that time hardening and strengthening our system for events like (Charley), he said.

Our Town Page 2 C The Sun /Wednesday, August 13, 2014 SIESTA KEY Two men escaped major injury on Tuesday afternoon when the replica World War II biplane they were ying in crash-landed on Siesta Key Beach, according to the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce. Pilot Earle F. Swan, 75, of Bradenton, and passenger Martin S. Thomas, 51, of Cape Coral, landed on the beach after experiencing what Earle said were engine problems around 1 p.m. The plane was located in the rear of the 7900 block of Sanderling Road on Siesta Key, and only Thomas reported any injuries a minor lacer ation which was treated at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. No one was hurt on the ground. The SCSO notied the Federal Aviation Administration about the incident and advised that a representative from the Flight Standards District Ofce would be investigating the scene. This is the second small plane crash in less than three weeks on Sarasota County beaches, after U.S. Army Sgt. Ommy Irizarry and his 9-year-old daughter Oceana died as a result of injuries they received after a plane crash-landed on Caspersen Beach in Venice, where they were walking. That plane, a Piper Cherokee piloted by Englewood resident Karl Kokomoor, took off out of Buchan Airport in Englewood before experiencing engine trouble and crashing on the beach July 27. Neither Kokomoor nor his passenger was hurt. Its unknown where the plane piloted by Swan departed from, or where it was heading to.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comNo injuries in Tuesday plane crash on Siesta KeyBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER PHOTO PROVIDED BY THE SARASOTA COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICEThis replica World War II biplane crash-landed on Siesta Key Beach Tuesday afternoon. Both the pilot and his passenger escaped major injury, and no one was hurt on the ground. Charlotte County Public Schools ofcials hope voters will approve the penny sales tax extension so security locks can be added to area schools. The locks would allow a teacher to secure his room from the inside, without having to step into the hallway, if a situation were to arise at an area school, said Chris Bress, chief technology ofcer with the district. The project would cost around $676,000, according to gures provided by the school district. Right now, teachers at some of the schools would have to step into the hallway and lock the classroom doors if something was happening at the school, he said. This is a breach of safety protocol, and could serve to show an intruder, who could be armed, which rooms are occupied, superintendent Doug Whittaker said in a previous interview. Heaven forbid we have an active shooter, or a really angry adult in one of our schools, Bress said. We wouldnt want a teacher to have to step into the hallway to lock the door if that was the case. The locks would need to be installed in the schools that were built before Hurricane Charley. Newer schools, such as the ones constructed after the 2004 storm, already have the security locks installed, he said. This would be an extra level of security for our teachers, Bress said. The sales-tax dollars are essential to securing funding for this project, Bress said. If not for the sales tax, other maintenance projects would have to be delayed in order to pay for the much-needed security upgrades, he added. The sales-tax extension will go before voters during Novembers general election.More school-security upgrades a tax priorityBy PAUL FALLONSPECIAL TO THE SUN 2014Charlotte salestax extension COSTAbout $676,000 is needed to install security locks on classrooms in schools throughout the county. The locks would allow teachers to lock classroom doors from the inside.

The Third Wednesday Coffee next week is being sponsored by State Insurance Agency, Brian Chapman Jr. Paul Polk, Charlotte County property appraiser, is the featured speaker and he will be talking about the changes in value countywide over the past couple of years. Last year, we saw the rst increase in taxable value for the county since 2006. TRIM notices showing this years values will be mailed on Aug. 18. Leadership Charlotte alumni will begin planning the days for the Leadership Charlotte class of 2015 on Aug. 27 at 4 p.m. in the Port Charlotte ofce. If youd like to help sponsor and/ or plan a day, please let me know. The Business Card Exchange on Aug. 28 will be held at Fawcett Memorial Hospitals H2U building in the Promenades Mall, behind Winn-Dixie. Please join us for great networking. Our Port Charlotte ofce had been expanded and remodeled in February 2004, so we were one of the few businesses in the community that had no damage on Aug. 13, and our conference room was a hub of activity for weeks after the storm. Heres some of what I wrote a year later: In those rst few days, we served as an information and referral resource for the community who were looking for the names of contractors, physicians, accommo dations and more. When the ofce was closed we taped lists to the door so that the community could get the information they needed. We made a daily trip to the radio station and newspapers to speak about and distribute a list of businesses that were open. We gave away thousands of Chamber maps to emergency and relief workers. And all this happened in the rst week. In the second and third weeks, the staff and volunteers walked the Business Assistance Center ier throughout Punta Gorda and to businesses on U.S. 41 and taped it to doors if the business was closed. We worked with Enterprise Charlotte so that a telephone bank could be set up in our Port Charlotte ofce to call businesses to assess needs. Through December, the Chamber received more than $12,000 from Chambers in Florida and the Manhattan (N.Y.) Chamber of Commerce to assist businesses in their recovery. We developed a simple grant application form and were able to assist 46 members who received funding from $100 to $400 to help replace signs, furniture and more, thanks to that unbelievable generosity. Besides learning about tarps, how to hook up a generator and how to be polite to a third adjuster, this year we have learned about helping neighbors and strangers, about the value of good service and about coming together as a community to re-build. There is much more to do, but we can do it Charlotte County. And, Im proud to say that 10 years later, we did it, Charlotte County!

Hague, was on the rst USA rowing team for the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany, along with Jesse Owens, who made the world record in running.

She was born Sept. 10, 1926, in Providence, R.I., the daughter of Claus and Williamina Ina Gustafson. Claire was a graduate of Cranston, R.I., and Rhode Island Hospital School of Nursing. She worked for many years at Women and Infants Hospital in Providence, before moving to Port Charlotte in 1984, where she continued nursing at St. Josephs Hospital before retiring. She was an active member of First Presbyterian Church of Port Charlotte, H2U/Senior Friends and the Charlotte Square Condominium community, until illness conned her activities. While a nursing student, one of Claires patients introduced her son, Nathaniel Manchester Nate Hopkins. They married in 1948. She is survived by her husband, Nathaniel Nate; sons, Stephen (Barbara Holland) Hopkins of Seattle, Wash., Gary of Port Charlotte, and Mark of Warwick; daughter, Karen (Jason) Osborn of Amherst, N.H.; and grandchildren, Lauren Osborn of Washington, D.C., Michael Hopkins of Los Angeles, Calif., Matthew Osborn of Washington, D.C., and Hannah Osborn of Amherst. The family will hold a private memorial service at a future date. In lieu of owers, memorial bequests in Claires name are invited to: Tidewell Hospice House of Port Charlotte, Tidewell Hospice Philanthropy Department, 5955 Rand Blvd., Sarasota, FL 34238; or Meals on Wheels, 3082 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte, FL 33952. The family expresses special appreciation for the blessings of Claires at-home Hospice Nurse Martha Pimentel, Caregiver Norma Jean Winslow, and the exceptional staff at Hospice House. Thanks to their care, Claire is enjoying her special rewards, like shopping with her sister-inlaw, Evelyn, solving word puzzles and knitting up a storm.

For example, FPL resolution specialists now carry electronic tablets with them and have access to a unique program developed by FPL to better assist customers. Workers can view a program similar to Google Earth that shows all the trouble tickets on a map. The crews can see which issues are near them, and head to the sites on their own, skipping the process of waiting for a call to come into the dispatch center and be sent out. Also, about three years ago, FPL began using upgraded thermography guns like the infrared cameras used by re and law-enforcement agencies. When viewing power poles and lines through the device, FPL workers can see the precise temperature in and around the electrical structures, and can detect what areas might be close to experiencing an outage. So FPL workers now can better address potential problems. This is much better technology than what weve had, said FPL production supervisor Ronnie Norton, who has been with the company 33 years and worked in the area after Charley hit. We can shoot the image, send it to our designers, theyll send us the job and we can x it. Its a great preventive measure. FPLs mobile command center which was stationed in Murdock after Charley was on display Tuesday. Since the storm, it has been upgraded with better weather-reading equipment and communication gear. All FPL operations can be observed through the center, which was built after Hurricane Andrew hit South Florida in 1992. The idea behind the center is that its self-contained, FPL Senior Emergency Preparedness Specialist Shane Forrester said. We can be anywhere at a moments notice. Charlotte County Emergency Management Director Wayne Sallade also was present Tuesday. He said the community has become stronger as a result of the rebuilding effort that followed the storm, and FPL played a key role. We have gone through urban renewal by disaster, and weve done it right, Sallade said. A factor that needs to be remembered, is each and every one of the people here are part of a team. And Florida Power & Light are part of our team.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comCHARLEYFROM PAGE 1 PUNTA GORDA Local resident Mark Dosseys recently published rst novel is both a loving tribute and a work of pure ction, full of intrigue, romance and murder. Its title, XC97: The Quest for the Cure, is the name of the cancer-curing drug. It exemplies Dosseys very real hope that medical science will eliminate (or X-out) cancer, and stands for the 97 iterations that were attempted before settling on the right drug formula. Heroine Ally Kendall is a mar keting director tasked with helping to launch the miracle drug. Along the way she encounters more than a few problems as she texts and talks her way out of trouble, according to Dossey. The book brings together the worlds of corporate life, venture capitalism and journalism, he said. The idea for the book came from the death of Dosseys cousin, Bruce Layne, from prostate cancer in 2012. Devastated by the loss, Dossey decided to write a book with the theme of a miracle drug offering a cure for cancer. Its not so far-fetched, he said. Some cancers now have treatments so that people dont die from them anymore. A native of Kentucky, Dossey had a corporate career before retiring to Punta Gorda. He hadnt really planned to write a book, he said, until the idea for it struck. While the idea for the book began as a tribute, Dossey let the plot and the characters evolve naturally. Kendall was not the main character initially, he said, but at some point it became obvious to him that she needed to take the lead. He himself didnt even know who the murderer would turn out to be, changing his mind as the plot developed almost independently of his plans. This led to major revisions, Dossey said, and a lot of editing by his wife Darcy Hall, who has a background in journalism. Publisher James Abraham, of Book-Broker Publishers, then offered additional insight and further edits. The writing and editing overall was a two-year endeavor. Those who have read the book describe it on its Facebook page as difcult to put down, with a fascinating story line and believable characters. One reader said he even gave up a day of tarpon shing to nish the book a true Florida testimonial. XC97 is $15 at Coppersh Books, 1205 Elizabeth St.; Sandman Book Company, 16480 Burnt Store Road; and The Gifted Gator, in the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association building, 2001 Shreve St. all in Punta Gorda.

Created in 2001 by Australian mental health professional Tony Jorm and nurse Betty Kitchener, the Mental Health First Aid program was brought to the U.S. as a way to offer mental health assistance to someone in a crisis situation, the same way rst-aid training can help someone in a medical emergency. Locally, professionals from Charlotte Behavioral Health Care and Riverside Behavioral Center teach the eighthour class. Participants are taught how to identify risk factors and warning signs, and how to provide initial aid before guiding someone in crisis to professional care. People typically tend to avoid somebody who is mentally ill because they dont know what to do, said Jay Glynn, director of Charlotte Behavioral. They dont know how to act with them or what to do with them, so they avoid them. The Mental Health First Aid doesnt train people how to be professionals and do counseling, but it trains people how to not avoid the issue, and how to be able to nd help for the person. Whats more, the training helps to shatter stigma and empower average citizens to take action. The public needs to be able to openly talk about mental illness, the same as they are able to talk about breast cancer or heart disease or any other physical illness without the stigma, said Jesse Babcock, a licensed clinical social worker at Riverside in Punta Gorda and a Mental Health First Aid trainer. So taking a Mental Health First Aid course would be a great step in that direction. In the case of depression, a leading risk factor for suicide, experts say its important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of a disease that impacts so many Americans. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, major depression is one of the most common mental disorders in the United States. An estimated 16 million U.S. adults in 2012 had at least one ma jor depressive episode, or bout of depressive symptoms, in the past year. As you can see from the Robin Williams (case), suicide and issues like this can affect any one, Glynn said. And thats the kind of thing we want to avoid.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comSUICIDEFROM PAGE 1 Were a Florida newspaper. We knew how to deal with power outages, and maybe rising waters and some winds. Our intent was to get the inside sections done because Hurricane Charley was headed for St. Petersburg or Tampa that evening, and would maybe cause us some problems as it went up the coast that afternoon. We wanted to be on top of that. But as we started our day that Friday morning, Aug. 13, we didnt realize it would be on top of us and wed be scrambling to put out a paper. Its not like we didnt take precautions. Our maintenance crew had spent that Thursday installing the steel window panels on our Charlotte Sun ofce, leaving only small gaps for the doors. They secured the trash cans in the parking lot. If you were here then, you know what happened to Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and Arcadia that afternoon. If not, you can read all the stories about Hurricane Charley, including those inside the Charley 10 Years Later special section in todays paper, and get a good idea. But maybe you dont know what happened at your newspaper. Just like everyone else, we lost power right about the time the meteorologists described Charleys jog right on the radar screen. Many of our employees and some family members, and even some pets, were here in this building doors secured now by the hurricane shields while others took our chances at our homes as the winds roared away. Somehow, our building stayed in one piece, only a few dented steel panels and one door broken. But no power. As soon as the winds died down and Charley moved up the Peace River, our staff went to work covering the biggest news story in the countys history. Reporters fanned out through the communities, from Boca Grande to Murdock, to see what happened. Then-executive editor Jim Gouvellis and Christy (now-) Feinberg drove over the bridge into Punta Gorda. Photographer Jonathan Fredin, who lost his roof, went out to shoot photos. Our copy desk hustled to get computers and equipment into a van. Meanwhile, our production staff worked to nd a place to print our paper. The news team reassembled a few hours later at an ofce building our company owns in Murdock that had a generator. The pace was frantic, but everyone focused on putting out a paper. Reporters and photographers used laptop computers and portable disc drives to le their work, while editors and page designers used a cobbled-together set of Macintoshes to edit and build pages. By 3 a.m., the Aug. 14, 2004, edition of The Sun was done. Volunteers from our sports team grabbed a storage disc and headed up to the Bradenton Herald, which had offered to print our paper. Catastrophic Charley Cripples Charlotte, shouted the headline. Distribution was another matter the next morning. Circulation manager Joe Gallimore gathered what carriers he could nd, and every body took out stacks of papers, wherever they went, and handed out papers for free for the next couple of weeks. The tools we used under normal circumstances became useless, Gallimore told writer Bob Massey a few months later. Theres the wilderness, then theres the deep, dark wilderness. Our carriers were in the deep, dark wilderness. Our Saturday plan sounded like a good one: Stay headquartered in Murdock, cover every story possible, put out another single edition of The Sun for Sunday. Only it didnt go down that way. As reporters and photographers were coming in with stories of devastation, the generator failed at the Murdock ofce. Our team was forced to move again, this time 20 miles north to the Gondolier Sun in Venice. We rebuilt the copy desk on a confer ence table and spent the night putting out another newspaper. Sunday night, we were able to assemble a paper again from Venice, but by Monday morning, we had obtained a truck generator from the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, and our Charlotte Harbor ofces were back up and running. No phones or Internet, but we had air conditioning and lights at our own ofce. We considered ourselves lucky. In the weeks that followed, the Sun took a leadership role in the community. Company founder Derek Dunn-Rankin and Sun President and Publisher David Dunn-Rankin decided to give our local businesses a boost as they were able to reopen. More than $1 million in free advertising went back to the business community, up to $3,000 per business. David contacted government leaders and established a regional task force to spearhead the efforts to rebuild Charlotte, DeSoto and Hardee counties. None of us in any of these counties had a really good track record of getting help from pork funds, David told Massey. But I believed working together would give us some clout. A meeting of 50 people, ranging from local civic leaders to federal and state agency representatives, met at the Sun to get things rolling. A Federal Emergency Management Agency long-term recovery team, the only one in the state, was established. At its peak, 1,500 people were participating in meetings. A FEMA project manager was appointed to help guide the area through the recovery process. Our community can look back with a sense of pride for the way we responded to the effects of Hurricane Charley. Those of us here at the Sun like to think we played our part as well.

Email him at porter@sun-herald. com.CHRISFROM PAGE 1 Editors note: The Sun is taking a look back on the 10th anniversary since Hurricane Charley roared into Charlotte Harbor. Dont miss the special insert in todays paper! CHARLOTTE COUNTY Although Punta Gorda residents and ofcials co-authored an undeniable success story after Hurricane Charley, re-inventing the city with a sparkling waterfront and fresh vibrancy, the most visible sign of the tempests devastation sits right in the center of downtown. There, a six-acre void in the midst of a civic transformation still awaits its future. The former City Marketplace site used to be a thriving shopping center with restaurants and local shops, along with anchors such as Publix and Bealls Outlet. But the Punta Gorda Mall was ripped down by natures wrath in 2004. While new owners of the property have yet to set a future course, that day of decision is approaching. Im hoping that something will start happening by the rst of the year, said Bruce Laishley, part of the ownership group that bought the property in 2012. Its now a clean chalkboard. Weve been reviewing a lot of good ideas. While hesitant to unveil specic plans, saying talks are still in the early stages, Laishley envisions a large, mixeduse development with plenty of amenities for residents. Something that would blend into Punta Gorda, the centerpiece that the town needs, he said. But why did this piece of the downtown puzzle take so long to draw interest? Lindsay Harrington, the former city mayor, state representative and local real estate broker for more than 20 years, explained that the recession put a halt to many plans. He said economic forces, like the force of Hurricane Charley, cannot be controlled. Only when the timing is right a higher demand for space and a higher value for spaces downtown will investors stick their neck out, Harrington said. The same can be said for other vacant lots throughout the county, parcels razed by Charley, yet to be reborn. Another visible reminder of the hur ricanes lasting power sits directly across the harbor. As motorists drive north to the end of the bridge, a wasteland remains immediately to the right. This nearly four-acre patch of overgrowth and concrete used to be the home of the Harbor Inn and its antiques fair and an oyster bar restaurant. Harrington said the long vacant hotel property recently attracted a new owner, indicating a rekindling of activity. The 2.8-acre site at 5000 Tamiami Trail sold for $1.7 million in December 2012. Something could be happening, he said. Another abandoned property destroyed by Charley, known as the Sea Horse Marina, sits on the opposite side of the U.S. 41 bridge in Charlotte Harbor. Perhaps construction of the Charlotte Harbor Gateway, slated to begin in September, will help jump-start development by the bridge. Interestingly enough, the same ownership group of Sea Horse Marina holds title to still another large parcel of undeveloped property. This 13-acre site off Kings Highway, just south of Westchester Boulevard, hosted the Palmetto Mobile Home Park in pre-hurricane days. Thats a prime piece of real estate, said Harrington, noting the property is zoned commercial general, which would allow a shopping center and other budding businesses. And to prove patience is the byword of this local real estate consortium, the Sea Horse owners also retain an empty lot on Marion Avenue, at the southeast corner of Taylor Street. Of course, there are several vacant spaces that remain on Marion, such as the site of the former Kennedys Garage, as well as other downtown spots, including the location of the old U-Save grocery store on East Olympia Avenue. Why have these small parcels in the city center avoided the developers constant hunt for protable prey? The conditions havent been favorable for redevelopment, said Bob Fig Newton who, like Harrington, is with Coldwell Banker. The owners are holding on, asking a lot for their properties. Plus, the commercial market is just recently coming around. Still more undeveloped spaces include one at Herald Court and Taylor, where the Punta Gorda Herald ofces held ground, and the site at Virginia Avenue and U.S. 41 southbound, where a long-time church welcomed worshipers. With a white steeple and arched windows, the church later housed Elegant Lees Formal Wear shop. But again, for all of these unused properties, the future may nally be gaining a foothold in the present. Its denitely turned the corner, Newton said. But the government must continue to preach the message, were open for business.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comCharleys legacy of barren spaces soon may sproutBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITER CHARLEY 10YearsLaterAugust13 ,2014 SUN PHOTO BY GARY ROBERTSAt the north end of the U.S. 41 bridge sits a 4-acre patch of overgrowth and concrete that remains undeveloped since Hurricane Charley.

With August being the traditional Dog Days of Summer, sipping lemonade and escaping the heat by staying inside with the air conditioner running overtime, neighbors on Garden Avenue may not have noticed the group of volunteers working in their neighborhood. With an unprecedented demand for affordable homes, Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity began construction earlier than normal this year to accommodate an increased number of partner families. One such partner family is Jessica Richardson. Jessica previously attended Southern Technical College and is currently employed in the nursing eld. On a recent Saturday, she and a group of individuals from Southern Technical College came out for a build day to help with a partner familys Sweat Equity. The task at hand was to secure the trusses. Under the careful guidance of CC Habitat site supervisors Tom ONeill and Randy Stuart, they had a productive day and helped a deserving family move one step closer to home ownership. Ruth Williams, Freshman Studies Program Manager for Southern Technical College, partnered with CC Habitat earlier in the year to offer a tuition reimbursement program for students who volunteer up to 60 nonprot hours per semester.

Hearns, along with a man named James Kipp, recruited people to take the prescriptions into Apple, promising them several pills in return for their services. The war rant states that between Aug. 11-16, 2011, Hearns and Kipp recruited ve individuals to deliver fake prescriptions to Apple, receiving 1,080 oxycodone pills. Hearns and Kipp, 46, of Venice, paid the individuals between ve and 20 pills, while Kipp was at one time promised half of one of the large orders, but Hearns never delivered on the business arrangement. The report states that several of the people recruited by Hearns knew him only as Big Mike. Hearns turned himself in Tuesday to the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce, and remains in jail without bond. Kipp is currently serving a prison sentence for selling cocaine at the Liberty Correctional Institution in Bristol, Fla. Hearns was most recently arrested in June by the North Port Police Department after being charged with attempting to distribute marijuana. While allegedly eeing from police, Hearns drove his black Mercedes into a canal on Monterey Lane. Inside the car police found a package containing over 7 pounds of marijuana, a package they had tracked to a vacant home located at 2494 Carolina St., where it had been delivered and later picked up by Hearns, reports show. Hearns has an extensive arrest history in Charlotte, Sarasota and Hardee counties dating back to 2008, and between 2010 and 2014, Hearns charges included possession of cocaine and heroin with intent to sell, possession of marijuana and cocaine, and several trafc charges. Hearns served one year and one day in a state prison stemming from burglary, grand theft and selling cocaine in Hardee County in 2008, according to the Florida Department of Corrections. Hearns has two Facebook pages, one labeled Joshua El Choppo Hearns, that features a photo of renowned drug lord Pablo Escobar as his prole picture. The other is labeled Mike Co, and is a musicians page about Hearns rap career. Hes described as being born in avon park orid (sic) and raised in hardee county, lake placid, st. pete and miami orida. The Mike Co Facebook page features a song called Salute, which boasts of guns and drugs. Both pages show pictures of Mercedes Benzes, Audis and a Lamborghini, with Hearns posing with several of the cars. The warrant states that Kipp faces the same charges as Hearns in connection with the prescription pill case.

Our Town Page 10 C The Sun /Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Election letters deadline Aug.19Editors note: We will be accepting letters related to the Aug. 26 primary election until 5 p.m. Aug. 19.Unions wading into politicsEditor: I imagine that most of the voters in Charlotte County are unaware of the endorsement of both Chris Constance and Stephen Deutsch by the local chapter of the AFL-CIO. From their own website, the AFL-CIO is an umbrella federation representing 66 unions. One has to wonder, what do they stand to gain from wading into Charlotte County politics? Representation is best that isnt bought and paid for.Carolyn M. Brown EnglewoodDemanding action on gun violenceEditor: As reported in the Aug. 6, Sun paper Police Beat: A 17-year-old boy choked a girl and then threatened to kill her with a knife because she refused to have sex with him. Do you believe this boy should be able to own a gun when he turns 18? The NRA would say sure he can. If this bothers you then you need to learn a lot more about how the backers of the NRA prot from gun proliferation across our nation. Here is how you can start: Much like Mothers Against Drunk Driving was created to change laws regarding drunk driving. Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America was created to build support for common-sense gun reforms. The nonpar tisan grassroots movement of American mothers is demanding new and stronger solutions to lax gun laws and loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our children and families. Since its inception after the Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting, Moms Demand Action has established a chapter in every state of the country and is part of Everytown for Gun Safety along with Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Everytown is the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country with more than 1.5 million supporters includ ing moms, mayors, survivors and everyday Americans who are ghting for reforms that respect the Second Amendment and protect people. For more information, Google Moms Demand Action.Patty Flynn Punta GordaDemocrats like taxes, handoutsEditor: The recent writer of Takes all stripes in political system evidently only knows the issues she disagrees with in the Republican Party. She misses the most important issue. Do you want a socialist government that has high taxes and gives handouts to those who do not want to excel? If the answer is yes then you most likely are a Democrat. If, on the other hand, you think children should be encouraged to study to excel in a eld of their choosing so they can support themselves and their families then you would be a Republican. The Democratic Party was not always this way, however, since the Democrats have supported Obama this is now the new Democratic Party, socialism. Obama conrmed this once again when he executed his executive order Dream Act. Now vast amounts of immigrants are walking over our border. Does anyone remember Mark Steyns article back in 2007 where he stated, Remember the 1986 amnesty? Mahmound abu Halima applied for it and went on to bomb the World Trade Center seven years later. Well, here we go again letting immigrants walk over our border. Where else in the world is that allowed? Only in America, and it is America that will suffer for it. The writer of another letter, A ridiculous way of seeing the world, needs to use his computer to Google Reverse discrimination. He is the one who apparently appears ignorant of its meaning. However, there should be no discrimination in this day and age.Lillian Iannarone EnglewoodReal center coming to Port CharlotteEditor: Many citizens of Charlotte County, or more specically, Port Charlotte, have stated it lacked a symbol or destination to hang its hat on. For most, when we think of Port Charlotte, we envision U.S. 41 and a myriad of businesses and stoplights. There is no real central destination for social, cultural or festival type activities. The planned Gateway/ Harbor Walk Project could be that center. It will highlight one of our greatest community resources, our waterfront lifestyle. Although many residents may be leery of any projects requiring funding from local tax dollars, Phase 1 of the proposed Harbor Walk Project intends to present the beginnings of such a place with a $1.2 million grant from the Florida Department of Transportation. It is to be located on the northeast shore and will be visible to northward travelers, crossing Charlotte Harbor. FDOT funding is approved for construction for 2014/2015. It will include landscaping, seawall, pedestrian promenade, parking, restroom facility, sidewalk connection and will complete a loop for those who enjoy walking, jogging or biking the bridge. Phase 1b is also approved for $1.4 million, funded by FDOT for 2015/2016 and features a shing pier and boardwalk that winds around the peninsula under the bridge. The long-term plan will be to work with businesses to foster projects such as a band shell, hotel and restaurants. Should such plans come together, Port Charlotte will have a town center for recreation, enter tainment and celebration that basks in the sunlight of the waterfront lifestyle.Paul Bigness EnglewoodIvankovic is best-qualiedEditor: Our friend, Dave Ivankovic, has proven himself to be the best-qualied candidate for Charlotte County commissioner, District 4. Dave is a man of integrity, a local business owner and family man and together with his wife, Toni, raised their two children in Charlotte County schools. Enterprise Charlotte Economic Council, together with many community leaders and local businessmen, have endorsed Dave. From mom and pop business owners, Realtors, contractors, school teachers, plumbers, electricians, youth sport coaches, doctors, nurses, nancial managers, county and city employees, and others all support Dave. Daves supporters share his vision of a Charlotte County with less debt and no lawsuits, a beautiful Charlotte County that provides higher paying jobs so our children and grandchildren will want to call it home. No, this is not a dream. This is what can be accomplished when our leaders focus on the problems and issues instead of when the next photo op is. Early voting began Aug. 11. If you share a vision of a better Charlotte County as I do, vote Dave Ivankovic in the primary elections. Thank you.Gary Newsom Punta GordaAmerican companies are demonizedEditor: This administration is always talking about the world economy and how we must compete globally. So it makes sense that companies have ofces around the world. And given our higher than average tax rate, it makes sense that some would establish headquarters in countries with lower tax rates. The truth that many people like to ignore is that companies are in business to make money for their investors not to pay taxes. This is especially true when the government spends their hard-earned money on foreign aid, on hare-brained programs, on green initiatives and on grandiose ideas. That puts us over $18 trillion in debt. So, while (after acquiring Alliance Boots) there was some talk of moving the corporate headquarters, Walgreens decided that it was unlikely to get IRS approval and would stay here which is another subject. And shares fell as a result. They are darned if they do and darned if they dont. There was a day when we celebrated American companies. They were a source of national pride. Now they are over-taxed and overregulated and demonized if they beat the odds and make money. Eventually, few will be left.Gerald Manegold North PortBank ocials belong in jailEditor: Bank of America, $16 billion to $17 billion penalty? Not one executive imprisoned. Not even brought before a court. So what does this say about American law? If you are rich enough to hide the scam well enough you will never see prison time and wont cost you personally a dime. One thing that should be outlawed in this country also are side deals of pleading to a lesser crime. Start putting people in prison and see how fast corporate crime stops.Gerald Benedick North PortHurricane heroes of all stripesOUR POSITION: Hurricane Charley brought out the hero in all of us. Show me a hero and Ill write you a tragedy. F. Scott FitzgeraldIn the days following Hur ricane Charley on Aug. 13, 2004, the pages of the Char lotte Sun ipped that phrase around. Shown a tragedy, our reporters, editors and readers wrote about heroes. Where words failed, hundreds of photos told the rest of the story. The list of heroes would ov erow this space, a testament to our human nature to rise above circumstances. Our series of staff-written proles and readers-submitted vignettes called Hurricane Heroes found them in all shapes, sizes and ages, from then-7-year-old Jake Whaley, who rescued a neighbors dog, to 84-year-old Barbara Ireland, who rallied her neighbors along Acline Road. Many of the heroes were anonymous, showing up in groups with food and water and chainsaws and axes, leaving relieved and grateful survivors in their wake. Restaurants stepped up, often powered by portable generators, to provide hot meals to residents and the legion of recovery personnel who descended on the county. Other businesses set up relief teams to help out employ ees and their families. The heroes at Clear Channel risked injury or even death to provide the latest storm infor mation, evacuating the countys emergency management center just before it was blown apart. (See Sun Correspondent Bob Masseys prole of Bob Alexander and Mike Moody in todays special section.) Florida Power & Light crews, along with partner contractors from Pike Electric and Asplundh, worked around the clock for weeks to restore electricity, replace poles and clear tree limbs. Bucking the common per ception that our communities lack the social cohesion of less transient towns, neighbor helped neighbor clear debris, cover roofs with tarps and set up generators. Sometimes, they just held each other as they cried, comforting each other amid their losses and their fears. Leaders led. Gov. Jeb Bush and his brother, President George W. Bush, worked with local ofcials like Emergency Management Director Wayne Sallade and County Administrator Bruce Loucks to coordinate disaster relief and recovery efforts. Local rst responders, buoyed by units of the Florida National Guard and law enforcement and re departments from across the state, focused on public safety, securing businesses and homes against looters, managing trafc snarled by blacked-out trafc lights and distributing ice, water and food. Nonprot organizations and faith-based groups, such as the American Red Cross, Salvation Army and Habitat for Humanity, poured into the county with volunteers, supplies and hope. They bolstered the efforts of dozens of local churches, whose members checked in on fellow congregants, manned squads of volunteers and provided spiritual sustenance. Much of the focus on this 10th anniversary has been on our communitys remarkable recovery from Hurricane Charley. That long-term dedication to rebuilding is heroic in its own way. Today, though, we are humbled and grateful to be a part of a community that took the worst nature could throw at it and responded with courage and compassion. That we shook off the dust and served as a model of resilience should make every one of of us proud.

The Sun /Wednesday, August 13, 2014 C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINT Maintenance dredging is scheduled for this year in the Manchester, Ackerman and Hyattsville waterways to provide safe navigation in the waterways. This project is located within Gasparilla Sound and the Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserve. Construction began at the end of June and is scheduled to be complete in October. Currently maintenance dredging is underway with two barges operating in the area; one is working in the Hyattsville Waterway and the second barge is working in the Ackerman Waterway/Lewis Creek. Quesada AvenueOn July 31, a sewer main break occurred at Quesada Avenue near the Crestview Waterway. Charlotte County Utilities crews reacted quickly and minimized the impact. A coordinated effort between the public works department and CCU is working on restoring the area. Currently the road has one lane closed. When the nal restoration work occurs, the road will be reduced to one lane and crew members with ags will be managing trafc ow. Motorists should remain alert at all times and exercise caution when traveling through construction zones. Trafc ow should be returned to normal by the end of this week.Youth basketballThe regular season of the Summer Youth Basketball League came to a close last week. Over the course of the weekend 292 participants and approximately 700 spectators lled the gymnasium of the Harold Avenue Recreation Center. In addition to the regular games, ten players from Harold Avenues league represented the program and competed in an All Star Game against 10 players from the Punta Gorda Police Departments Jammers Basketball league. The game was exciting up to the last moment although the Harold Avenue All Stars put up a good ght they fell to the Punta Gorda Jammers with a threepoint shot made at the buzzer. The coordinators of the Summer Youth Basketball Season would like to send a big shoutout to the Harold Avenue Recreation Centers Youth Basketball League participants and to the Punta Gorda Police Department Jammers as well for a job well done this season.Cigarette litterKeep Charlotte Beautiful has received a grant from Keep America Beautiful to expand the cigarette litter prevention program in Charlotte County. This grant specically targets marinas and boat ramps. As a result of a survey conducted at Eldreds Marina and the Placida Boat ramp, it was determined that these two locations were good candidates to receive cigarette butt receptacles. Keep Charlotte Beautiful will supply additional receptacles for the Englewood Beach facility in the near future. Big BellyAs a part of our contract with Waste Management, Charlotte County receives two Big Belly solar-powered recycling and garbage containers at no cost every year. The rst two we received were installed at Bayshore Live Oak Park and the Englewood Beach facility. The two units we received this year were installed at the Port Charlotte Beach Complex and Englewood Beach. Big Belly trash containers are stateof-the art equipment. The containers are equipped with built-in solar-powered trash compactors and send electronic notications to the service department when the unit is nearing capacity. The notications save staff time and fuel by only servicing the containers when needed. We will continue to install future units in areas identied as the most utilized county facilities.

Our Town Page 12 C The Sun /Wednesday, August 13, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS ENGLEWOOD A Facebook page with the Bible verse Luke 18:27 says it best for Jeremy Daviss situation: What is impossible for people is possible with God. For more than a year, Davis battled idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, which caused so much lung damage that he desperately needs a transplant. It started off as a cough, said Davis, who lives in Englewood. They (doctors) believe it may have come from a type of pneumonia COP (cryptogenic organizing pneumonia). I am on oxygen, and Friday is my last day of work. Its just too difficult to walk around and do the day-to-day stuff at the office (Connect Hearing). My job has been very supportive and understanding. Davis longtime friend and retired Lemon Bay High School coach Randel Wheeler stepped up to help Davis and his family. Dubbed the BeachPainter, Wheeler was an active coach in Englewood for 20 years. How can someone at 34 need new lungs in order to live? said Wheeler, who coached Davis in JV football. I watch him now cough until he cant catch his breath, which scares me to death, by the way. He is on oxygen all of the time. His lungs are functioning at 30 percent. Wheeler, a self-taught watercolor artist, is selling mini-watercolor paintings beginning at $10, with all of the proceeds going to Davis. Davis says he is truly overwhelmed with the love Wheeler and the community have shown. I am still awaiting the call from Tampa General to receive new lungs, said Davis, the father of 7-year-old twin boys, Wyatt and Noah, and 4-year-old son, Colton. The hospital has been great. I have insurance and coverages are good, but there are other expenses that wont be covered. I will have out-of-pocket medical expenses. In addition to the painting fundraiser, a online account (www.gofund has been launched through Davis church West Coast Church on Pine Street in Englewood. So far, $3,905 of the $30,000 goal has been raised. A Facebook page titled Lungs for Jeremy has been set up. It gives updates on Davis health and happenings. He has more than 1,050 likes. Davis has been instructed the surgery will take six to eight hours. The recovery time depends on how well my body is adjusting to the new lungs. I will be a week in ICU, and at least another week or two in the hospital, he said. After being released, I will need to stay within a half-hour of the hospital to return daily for check-ups for two weeks, possibly longer. Rejection of the new lungs is one of the biggest concerns of Davis doctors, he said. They will keep close eyes on me until they feel my body is adapting well, he said. The process of how the lungs are obtained is truly amazing. People ask how they can help. Anything helps, and our family is so appreciative. Please keep us in your prayers. Davis doesnt have a donor yet. Once he does, he will have to be at the hospital within three hours. It could be tonight, it could be in a month; I dont know when, he said. Wheeler has pledged that if a supporter buys any three minis from the special collection, an additional $10 will be donated to Lungs for Jeremy by the BeachPainter. If any six minis in any one order are purchased, Wheeler will donate $20, in addition to the proceeds, to Lungs for Jeremy. The fundraiser listed on www.beachpainter. com lasts through September. There are more than 30 paintings, including snowy scenes to beach settings and wildlife. Thank you all for the support and for believing for a miracle, Davis said.Email: eallen@sun-herald.comSimple cough leads to need for lung transplantBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHSTAFF WRITER Jeremy Davis is waiting for a lung transplant.

Our Town Page 14 C The Sun /Wednesday, August 13, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT Nancy Cassidy carefully moves about her yard, making sure not to disturb a neighbor causing big concerns for the North Port resident. A 4 -foot alligator has taken up residence in the swale next to the Cassidy home on Bay City Terrace, bringing lots of worry with it. Cassidy, 60, noticed the gator in the spring and has kept a close eye, watching the reptile continue to grow in size. Hes been here for about ve months. He started off kind of small. I noticed him when he was about 3 feet, but he has been here every single day, Cassidy said Monday. The gator has yet to cause any injury to Cassidy, or any of her neighbors or pets, which is why she didnt report the reptile earlier. I just assumed he would nd his way back to mommy, so I tried to ignore it. But now hes living here, he likes it here, she said. Cassidy reported the gator to North Port Animal Services Ofcer Jarred Fegan recently, hoping to solve the problem. He came about two weeks ago, she said. (The alligator) was in my yard when I rst saw him, out by my ag pole. I went in to call animal control I was on hold for probably 20 minutes before I got to speak to anyone. By the time animal control got here (the gator) was back in the swale, so (Fegan) said he couldnt do anything, she said. Fegan spoke to the Sun Monday about North Ports policies when it comes to wildlife in city limits. For a nuisance alligator we have restrictions within the Police Department, he said. We are only permitted to handle alligators 3 feet and under, and we arent allowed to remove alligators from their natural habitat. (Cassidys) swale is considered a natural habitat in this case. Fegan reports removing a small alligator, approximately 2 feet long, from a residents front doorstep last week. Sarasota County Animal Services does not handle alligator trapping or removal at all, leaving residents like Cassidy with limited options. Im not getting in there to get rid of it, but I cant anyway because its illegal. My hands are tied. I just feel like they dont want to do anything about it thats the way I feel about it, she said. I put a sign up yester day because Im afraid someone will get hurt. Kids ride their bikes and walk near that swale trying to get a look at him. Some of them poke it with long sticks. My husband is handicapped and he hobbles down the driveway to pick up (the) paper every day with our dogs. If (the gator is) out in the yard sunning himself and sees my husband or the dogs, (my husband) wouldnt be able to do anything (to get away). There are alligator removal resources available such as the Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program, or SNAP. Administered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the program brings together a network of licensed trappers that work to address alligator complaints. We literally get thousands of alligator complaints a year, said FWC spokesman Gary Morse. We determine if the alligator poses a threat to people, pets or property. If it does, a permit is issued to a trapper. The trapper then makes contact with the complainant. Though a gator may seem to pose a threat, that may not always be the case, according to Morse. Each situation is closely evaluated. We dont remove them just because they are there, people have to realize that. Alligators are a natural part of Florida and important to the ecosystem, he said. That being said, if the alligator is determined to be a nuisance or a threat, we take measures to remove it. Trapping is not a science its an art. It can take several days to several weeks to trap an alligator, but we have great trappers in every region that work with complainants. Cost is a huge concern for Cassidy, which is why she and her husband have yet to seek private or commercial help for their gator problem. We dont have the funds. Were barely making our house payments, she said. I know several neighbors have called and reported it, not just us. Something needs to be done before someone gets hurt. SNAP offers services to residents at no cost. Once trapped and caught, nuisance alligators are harvested for their meat and hide, which helps fund the statewide program.

Federal health ofcials sent out letters in English and Spanish to consumers Tuesday warning there was an inconsistency between what they wrote on their health insurance application and the immigration and citizenship information that the feds have on record. Ofcials will reach out to consumers two more times by phone and once via email before the deadline. The documents must be submitted by Sept. 5 or coverage will end Sept. 30. Many consumers have already been contacted ve to seven times, but still havent responded, senior health ofcials said on a conference call Tuesday. Of the 8 million people around the country who signed up for private coverage through President Barack Obamas law, more than 2 million at one point had discrepancies of one sort or another that could have affected their eligibility. That number has been greatly reduced but the remaining cases are proving difcult to untangle. Nearly 1 million U.S. consumers have immigration-related inconsistencies with their applications. The feds have closed 450,000 cases and another 210,000 are in progress. But 310,000 consumers havent submitted any documents, including 93,800 in Florida.

Authorities detailed Robin Williams nal moments Tuesday, saying the actor and comedian hanged himself with a belt in his San Francisco Bay Area home. Marin County Sheriffs Lt. Keith Boyd said Williams was last seen alive by his wife Sunday night when she went to bed. She woke up the next morning and left, thinking he was still asleep. Shortly after that, Williams personal assistant came to the Tiburon home and became concerned when Williams failed to respond to knocks at a door. The assistant found the 63-year-old actor dead in a bedroom and called police. Boyd said all evidence indicates Williams, star of Good Will Hunting, Mrs. Doubtre, Good Morning, Vietnam and dozens of other lms, took his own life. But he said a nal ruling will be made once toxicology reports and interviews with witnesses are complete. The condition of the body indicated Williams had been dead for at least several hours, Boyd said. Williams also had supercial cuts on his wrist, and a pocketknife was found nearby. Williams had been seeking treatment for depression, Boyd said. He would not say whether the actor left a suicide note. We still have people we want to speak Authorities: Robin Williams hanged himselfBy PAUL ELIASASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER WILLIAMS WILLIAMS | 4Lauren Bacall, a bewitching actress whose husky voice and smoldering onscreen chemistry with her husband Humphrey Bogart made her a dening movie star of the 1940s and who, decades later, won Tony Awards in the Broadway musicals Applause and Woman of the Year, has died at 89. Robbert de Klerk, co-managing partner of the Humphrey Bogart Estate, conrmed the death in an email. Bacall was one of the last surviving major stars of the studio system, which ourished from the silent movie era to the dawn of the television age. She was a willowy, ash-blond fashion model when veteran lm director Howard Hawks plucked her from the pages of Harpers Bazaar in 1943 and molded her seductive screen persona. Hawks gave Bacall, then 19, an electrify ing lm debut: as a sexy and insolent woman of mystery in To Have and Have Not (1944), based on an Ernest Hemingway story and set in the Caribbean during World War II. The movie shaped her public identity: a woman as sexually condent as she was formidable, or in Bogarts words, steel with curves. In the lms best-remembered scene, Bacall sidles up to Bogart, who plays a hardboiled charter boat captain named Steve. She kisses him, then says, Its even better when you help. As she prepares to leave his hotel room, she tells him, You know you dont have to act with me, Steve.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Wednesday, August 13, 2014 NATIONAL/WORLD NEWS | NATIONOil companies fracking into drinking water WASHINGTON (MCT) Some companies are fracking for oil and gas at far shallower depths than widely believed, sometimes through underground sources of drinking water, according to research released Tuesday by Stanford University scientists. Though researchers cautioned their study of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, employed at two Wyoming geological formations showed no direct evidence of water-supply contamination, their work is certain to roil the public health debate over the risks of the controversial oil and gas production process. Fracking involves high-pressure injection of millions of gallons of water mixed with sand and chemicals to crack geological formations and tap previously unreachable oil and gas reserves. Obama, Clinton to attend Marthas Vineyard partyEDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) President Barack Obama will spend a bit of his summer vacation with Hillary Rodham Clinton, a get-together that comes amid signs that the former secretary of state is seeking to distance her self from Obamas foreign policy ahead of a possible 2016 White House bid. The White House said the president, along with rst lady Michelle Obama, planned to see Clinton Wednesday at a party on Marthas Vineyard for Ann Jordan, wife of Democratic adviser Vernon Jordan. Clinton is on the Massachusetts island for a memoir-signing session at a bookstore, while the Obamas are in the midst of a two-week vacation.Report: Home-price increases slow in most U.S. cities(Bloomberg) Homeprice gains moderated in most of the U.S. in the second quarter, with appreciation reaching its slowest pace since 2012 as more houses came to the market. The median price of an existing single-family home rose in 71 percent of the 173 metropolitan areas measured, down from 74 percent in the first quarter, the National Association of Realtors said in a report Tuesday. Price growth slowed in 107 markets, said Adam DeSanctis, a spokesman for the group.Job openings at highest level since 2001WASHINGTON (Bloomberg) Job openings rose in June to the highest level in more than 13 years, firming up the U.S. labor market picture for the second half of the year.

Violators will be punished as having committed a crime, the ofcial Islamic Republic News Agency reported Sunday.

Israel, Hamas press ahead on Gaza truce talksCAIRO (AP) Israeli and Hamas negotiators huddled for a second day of Egyptian-mediated talks Tuesday, seeking a formula for an extended cease-re meant to end a monthlong war and bring relief to the embattled Gaza Strip. With the talks continuing well into the evening, it was unclear whether the two enemies had made any progress as a temporary truce expires midnight Wednesday. The negotiations took place after a three-day truce brokered by Egypt took effect Monday. A similar truce collapsed last Friday after Gaza militants quickly resumed rocket re with its expiration.UN: OK to use untested Ebola drugs in outbreakMADRID (AP) The World Health Organization declared its ethical to use untested drugs and vaccines in the ongoing Ebola outbreak in West Africa although the tiny supply of one experimental treatment has been depleted and it could be many months until more is available. The last of the drug is on its way to Liberia for two stricken doctors, according to a U.K.-based public relations rm representing Liberia. The U.S. company that makes it said the supply is now exhausted. A Spanish missionary priest who died Tuesday in Madrid was the third person to receive the experimental treatment called ZMapp. Two U.S. aid workers who received it in recent weeks are said to be improving. The outbreak has killed more than 1,000 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria.Militants hold 7 Iraq oil fieldsDUBAI, United Arab Emirates (Bloomberg) Islamic State ghters have captured seven oil elds in Iraq with a total output capacity of 80,000 barrels a day, adding to energy deposits they seized earlier in neighboring Syria, the International Energy Agency said. The insurgents, who swept into northern Iraq in June, grabbed the Ain Zalah and Batma elds in Nineveh province this month, the IEA said Tuesday in its monthly oil market report. They already controlled the Najma, Qayara, Himreen, Ajeel and Balad elds, the agency said. MOSCOW (AP) With a theatrical ourish, Russia on Tuesday dispatched hundreds of trucks covered in white tarps and sprinkled with holy water on a mission to deliver aid to a desperate rebel-held zone in eastern Ukraine. The televised sight of the miles-long convoy sparked a show of indignation from the government in Kiev, which insisted any aid must be delivered by the international Red Cross. Ukraine and the West have openly expressed its concern that Moscow intends to use the cover of a humanitarian operation to embark on a military incursion in support of pro-Russian separatists. Amid those anxieties, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday was set to travel to Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula Russia annexed in March, where he was to preside over a meeting involving the entire Russian Cabinet and senior lawmakers. Putin so far has resisted calls from both pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine and nationalists at home to send Russian troops to back the mutiny, a move that would be certain to trigger devastating Western sanctions. But dispatching the convoy sent a powerful visual symbol helping the Kremlin counter criticism from the nationalists who accuse Putin of betrayal. The convoy provoked controversy as soon as it started moving early Tuesday from the outskirts of Moscow on its long voyage toward the Ukrainian border. Ofcials with both the International Committee of the Red Cross and Ukraines government said they had no infor mation about what the trucks were carrying or where they were headed. A Ukrainian security spokesman said the convoy of white-canvased vehicles was being managed by the Russian army and could not as a result be allowed into the country. Moscow has rejected the claim, saying that the convoy is organized by the Emergencies Ministry, a non-military agency dealing with humanitarian relief tasks. The government in Kiev said the Russian trucks could unload their contents at the border and transfer the aid to vehicles leased by the ICRC. Russian authorities said the trucks were loaded with nearly 2,000 metric tons of cargo from baby food to portable generators.

LAS VEGAS (AP) Once-teeming Lake Mead marinas are idle as a 14-year drought steadily drops water levels to historic lows. Ofcials from nearby Las Vegas are pushing conservation but also are drilling a new pipeline to keep drawing water from the lake. Hundreds of miles away, farmers who receive water from the lake behind Hoover Dam are preparing for the worst. The receding shoreline at one of the main reservoirs in the vast Colorado River water system is raising concerns about the future of a network serving a perennially parched region home to 40 million people and 4 million acres of farmland. Marina operators, water managers and farmers who for decades have chased every drop of water across the booming Southwest and part of Mexico are closely tracking the reservoir water level already at its lowest point since it was rst lled in the 1930s. We just hope for snow and rain up in Colorado, so itll come our way, said marina operator Steve Biggs, referring to precipitation in the Rockies that ows down the Colorado River to help ll the reservoir separating Nevada and Arizona. By 2016, continued drought could trigger cuts in water deliveries to both states. While water authorities say theyve been saving water for potential dry days, the prospect of the rst cuts is already prompting action. Ive downsized in the last couple of years, probably a good thing the way this water shortage is going, said farmer Dennis Bagnall, who has planted just 225 of the 1,500 acres that are typically green this time of year on his farm south of Phoenix. Last week, ofcials announced an $11 million pilot program involving the federal government and water agencies in Denver, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Phoenix to pay farmers, cities and industries to reduce river water use. We can certainly hope for better conditions than weve experienced in recent times, but we have to actively and continue to plan for the worst case, said Michael J. Lacey, director of the Arizona Department of Water Resources. This week, an update from the federal Bureau of Reclamation, the keeper of the Colorado River networks dams and reservoirs, will help set the course for water deliveries for the next two years.

(Bloomberg) Loss of function of the gene in the brain tied to Alzheimers disease may not lead to memory and thinking problems, according to a surprise nding that upends some theories about the disease. Researchers found that a man with no apolipoprotein E, or APOE, in his body was cognitively normal and showed no other neurological signs of Alzheimers, according to a case study published Monday in the journal JAMA Neurology. Those with a mutation of the gene called APOE4 have a higher risk of developing Alzheimers. More than 5 million Americans have Alzheimers disease, the most common form of dementia, and the number is expected to triple by 2050, according to the Alzheimers Association. The ndings show that APOE isnt necessary for brain function, a notion that could lead to a new approach for treating the disease, researchers said. Minimizing APOE4 levels in the brain may provide us with a new venue for intervention with Alzheimers disease and other cognitive disorders, Mary Malloy, a study author and professor of medicine and pediatrics at the University of California at San Francisco, said in an Aug. 8 telephone interview. The observations of this patient suggest this strategy can now be enter tained seriously. We think the potential harm in minimizing APOE4 levels seems to be nonexistent. There are three types of APOE, which helps transport cholesterol, in the body. About 20 percent of people carry APOE4, which is linked to Alzheimers, Bruce Miller, a study author and a professor of neurology at UCSF, said in an interview. Youre better off having no APOE than APOE4, he said. Turning off APOE in the brain, this gives some hope to the idea that we might have very selective ways of down regulating APOE4 in the brain and diminishing its risk for Alzheimers. In the study, a 40-yearold California man was seen at UCSF for severe high cholesterol that wasnt responsive to treatment. Researchers found he had no APOE in his body, a very rare occurrence, yet he had normal cognitive and eye function, Malloy said. We know from other diseases that there are many metabolic process that are very highly redundant that can come in and do a job if one is missing, she said. APOE has a pur pose, but maybe there are ways to get around that. Maybe another protein can take over.Alzheimers gene not needed by brain Call toll-free: 1-800-756-3857Are You Still Paying Too Much For Your Medications?You can save up to 93% when you fill your prescriptions at our Canadian and International prescription service.Celecoxib$64.00 CelebrexTM$679.41 compared to Our PriceCall Toll-free: 1-800-756-3857 Please note that we do not carry controlled substances and a valid prescription is required for all prescription medication orders.Use of these services is subject to the Terms of Use and accompanying policies at Typical US brand price for 200mg x 100Generic equivalent of CelebrexTM.

So when a patrolman in Braintree, Mass., spotted a Maserati resembling a police cruiser over the weekend, he pulled it over. Deputy Chief Wayne Foster tells The Patriot Ledger the luxury Italian vehicles body was painted black and white with a policestyle shield on the doors, and police-related decals. Foster said the door shield wasnt accompanied by the usual police phrase Protect and Serve, but rather with Decepticons punish and enslave. The driver told the officer who pulled him over that he was actually assisting police because other drivers noticed him and slowed down, thinking it was a police vehicle. The driver, whose name was not made public, was summoned to court to face a charge of impersonating a police officer.ODD NEWS Maserati patrol car raises police suspicions have to say anything, and you dont have to do anything. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, dont you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow. Bogart, more than twice her age and looking it, wore an expression of someone who could not believe his luck. Here was someone whose cocksure impertinence matched his and she could sing, to boot, rendering How Little We Know to Hoagy Carmichaels piano. Bogart divorced his third wife and married Bacall after lming. The notion that Bogart was falling for her is intoxicating, said lm historian David Thomson. We used to go to the movies to fall in love with these strange people, and the fact that they might fall in love with each other is magic plus. This is the best instance of that happening in front of the camera. The sexual undercur rent was repeated in The Big Sleep (1946), with Bogart as Raymond Chandlers ctional private detective Philip Marlowe and Bacall as a resourceful divorcee. She went on to act opposite some of the top leading men of her day Kirk Douglas (Young Man with a Horn), Gary Cooper (Bright Leaf), John Wayne (Blood Alley) and Gregory Peck (Designing Woman) but the lms were inconsistent in quality. If Bacall never again matched the sultry intensity of her early promise, she became a disciplined Broadway performer and bedaz zled a series of powerful men in arts and politics. After Bogart died in 1957, she was engaged to Frank Sinatra and had a turbulent marriage to actor Jason Robards Jr. She was a longtime resident of the Dakota apartments in New York, but her social life extended far beyond the city. She was a presence in the Hollywood lm community and Washington stages and salons. Attracted to liberal politics, Bacall grew close to a series of Democratic leaders, including President Harry Truman (who once serenaded her with the piano), Robert F. Kennedy and Adlai Stevenson II. In 1947, she ew with Bogart to Washington as part of a group of actors and directors protesting the House Un-American Activities Committee and its investigation into alleged communist subversion in Hollywood. Onscreen, Bacall matured into character parts that culminated in her Oscar nomination in a supporting role as Barbra Streisands hopelessly narcissistic mother in The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996). She received an honorary Academy Award in 1999 that celebrated her central place in the Golden Age of motion pictures. Bacall was born Betty Joan Perske on Sept. 16, 1924, into a middle-class Jewish family in New York City. She was a child when her father abandoned the family. She grew up with her mother, who took the surname Bacal; Betty later added the extra L and paired it with the screen name Lauren at director Hawks behest. She had modest training as an actress, but her stunning looks led to a modeling career and an appearance on the cover of Harpers Bazaar in March 1943. Captivated by Bacalls photogenic face, Hawks put her under a seven-year contract, trained her in techniques of movie acting and waited for the right material to introduce her to audiences. To promote To Have and Have Not, she was publicized as the Look to note her thrilling way with a come-hither stare.BACALLFROM PAGE 1 AP FILE PHOTOThis February 1950 photo shows actor Humphrey Bogart and his wife actress Lauren Bacall appearing at the Stork Club in New York. with so there is some information were going to withhold, Boyd said. Were not discussing the note or a note at this point as the investigation is ongoing. It was no secret that the Oscar-winning actor had suffered for years from periodic bouts of substance abuse and depression he made reference to it himself in his comedy routines. Just last month, Williams announced he was returning to a 12-step treatment program. When he sought treatment in 2006 after a relapse that followed 20 years of sobriety, he joked about falling off the wagon: I went to rehab in wine country to keep my options open. Likewise, when word spread about his struggles with drugs in the early 1980s, Williams responded with a joke that for a time became a catchphrase for his generations recreational drug use: Cocaine is Gods way of telling you you are making too much money. Word that he had killed himself left neighbors in Tiburon equally stunned and grief-stricken. Williams had lived in the quiet, waterfront neighborhood for eight years, according to neighbors. Noreen Nieder said Williams was a friendly neighbor who always said hello and engaged in small talk. Nieder said she wasnt close to Williams and his family, but she still felt comfortable enough to approach him and ask him about his latest stint in drug and alcohol rehabilitation. He was very open about it, Nieder said. He told me he was doing well. Makeshift memorials of owers and notes popped up around the country including on his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, his Tiburon home and outside the house where the s sitcom Mork & Mindy was set in Boulder, Colo.WILLIAMSFROM PAGE 1 on the mountain, said Ismail Rashu, 22, in the Newroz camp in the Syrian Kurdish town of Malikiya some 20 miles (30 kilometers) from the Iraqi border. Families had lled the battered, dusty tents here and new arrivals sat in the shade of rocks, sleeping on blue plastic sheets. Camp ofcials estimated that at least 2,000 families sought shelter there on Sunday evening. Nearby, an exhausted woman rocked a baby to sleep. Another sobbed that she abandoned her elderly uncle in their village of Zouraba; he was too weak to walk, too heavy to carry. Many said they hadnt eaten for days on the mountain; their lips were cracked from dehydration and heat, their feet swollen and blackened from walking. Some elderly, disabled and young children were left behind. Others were still walking to where Syrian Kurds were rescuing them, they said. We are thankful, from our heads to the sky, to the last day on earth, said Naji Hassan, a Yazidi at the Tigris river border crossing, where thousands of rescued Yazidis were heading back into Iraq on Sunday. The U.N. estimated around 50,000 Yazidis ed to the mountain. But by Sunday, Kurdish ofcials said at least 45,000 had crossed through the safe passage, leaving thousands more behind and suggesting the number of stranded was higher. Syrian Kurds have carved out effective selfrule in the northeastern corner of Syria where they make up the majority. But while members of the ethnic group in both Iraq and Syria pursue their destiny, the two communities are divided by political splits. Iraqs Kurds, who have managed a self-rule territory for over two decades, are dominated by factions that have built up strong ties with neighboring Turkey. Syrias Kurds, however, are closer to longtime Turkish Kurdish rebels and until the 2011 uprising against President Bashar Assad were rmly under his control. Syrian Kurdish ofcials said soon after Yazidis ed their villages, they began ghting to create a safe passage. They clashed with Islamic State ghters upon KURDSFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOIn this Sunday photo, displaced Iraqis from the Yazidi community settle at a camp in Derike, Syria.

The issue highlights concerns from the laws opponents who warned that fraudsters would nd a way to game the system the same way theyve inltrated the Medicare and Medicaid programs. The inconsistencies addressed Tuesday only apply to immigration issues. Problems with income verication will be handled later. The new health law provides subsidized coverage to people with no access to health insurance on the job. More than 90 percent of the nearly 1 million Floridians who signed up are getting subsidies to help with their premiums and, in some cases, their copays and deductibles as well. But those taxpayer subsidies are contingent on meeting a host of requirements. Illegal immigrants are not allowed to get coverage. And the amount of a consumers premium tax credit can vary by income, family size, hometown and other factors. That can make getting covered through the law feel somewhat like doing your taxes. Local health advocates who helped enroll consumers said theyre going to libraries and other community events to help get the word out.OBAMACAREFROM PAGE 1 BAGHDAD (AP) His days in power in Iraq appear increasingly numbered. World leaders, including his biggest ally, Iran, hail the nomination of the man who would be his successor. Theres seemingly little left for Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to cling to, beyond the support of party stalwarts and high-ranking loyalists in the military. Al-Maliki looked even more isolated Tuesday, a day after Iraqs president appointed Haider al-Abadi as prime minister-designate to form a caretaker government a move seen as a major step toward breaking the political deadlock that has paralyzed the country since April elections. It also comes after Islamic extremists have swept across northern Iraq, prompting the U.S. to launch airstrikes and directly arm Kurds who are battling the militants. Despite the backing he enjoys among the top military brass, al-Maliki told the Iraqi army Tuesday to keep out of politics and focus on protecting the nation. Al-Maliki, who has been in power for eight years, insists he should keep his post as prime minister of the Shiite-led government for a third term because his bloc won the most seats in the assembly, even though he has lost some support with the main coalition of Shiite parties. U.S. President Barack Obama has called the nomination of al-Abadi a positive step for Iraq, and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Tuesday he welcomed the formation of a new government acceptable to all components of Iraqi society. Saudi Arabias King Abdullah sent his congratulations. The ofcial Saudi Press Agency said the king expressed his hope the new prime minister, president and parliament speaker would restore cohesion and unity among the Iraqi people. The move represents a sharp pivot from the bitter relationship that Riyadh and Baghdad had under al-Maliki, when each side blamed the other for sectarian strife and fueling extremism. Even Shiite power house Iran rallied behind al-Abadi as a badly needed unifying gure in the face of the insurgency by the Sunni militants of the Islamic State group. Top Iranian ofcial Ali Shamkhani offered his congratulations to the veteran Iraqi politician, indicating that Tehran, with its considerable inuence on the Shiite parties, is further shifting away from al-Maliki.Iraqs prime minister seems increasingly isolated ALMALIKI raaUvaraaQ4ocs1Bu B4 gJ ;ttWADtwoenv,


The Sun /Wednesday, August 13, 2014 WIRE Page 5 STATE NEWS TALLAHASSEE (AP) If former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist is elected governor as a Democrat in November, all seven state Supreme Court justices might be his appointments. If Republican Gov. Rick Scott is re-elected, he could completely reshape the court that has frustrated him and other GOP leaders on issues ranging from medical marijuana to efforts to protect doctors and businesses from lawsuits. Whichever candidate Floridians elect, they also will decide the direction of the Supreme Court for decades to come. Floridas mandatory retirement age of 70 for Supreme Court justices means four will leave the court by January 2019, and each has often rejected laws created by the Republican-controlled Legislature and executive orders issued by Scott. Any appointees could stay on the court until they turn 70, which could be 20 years or more. A number of Scotts actions have been found unconstitutional in state and federal courts, including attempts to drug test welfare recipients and state employees; his order to state agencies not to implement rules for regulations established by the Legislature; a prison privatization plan; and an effort to protect developers from lawsuits. The states high court has also struck down other Republican priorities implemented before Scott took ofce, including a school voucher program and lawsuit caps on medical malpractice cases in which the patient dies. Crist had his own problems with the Supreme Court when he was governor. The court ruled he overstepped his powers by negotiating a gambling compact with the Seminole Indians without getting legislative approval. Crist was also ordered to name a judge to an appeals court after he rejected recommendations from a judicial nominating commission because all potential appointees were white and Crist wanted a more diverse list. Justice James Perry, who was appointed by Crist in 2009, will retire in 2017. Justices Barbara Pariente, Fred Lewis and Peggy Quince will retire in 2019 on the same day that the governor elected in 2018 takes ofce. A question on this Novembers ballot will ask voters to give the sitting governor the right to name their replacements even if hes leaving ofce. If the measure fails, the sitting governor might still have a say in the nominees. In 2009, outgoing Democratic Gov. Lawton Chiles appointed Quince and Lewis, but only after getting the approval of Republican Gov.-elect Jeb Bush. Pariente was appointed by Chiles in 1997. Crist has made the Supreme Court part of his talking points as he campaigns. Scott has not. If Rick Scott gets re-elected and appoints ideological wackos to the Supreme Court, its over, Crist said. Its over for women, its over for minorities, its over for gays, its over for the environment, its over for public education. Its all over. Crist said that the outgoing justices are those who are most compassionate on the bench, and thats the quality hell look for if he gets a chance to replace them. Besides Perry, Crist also appointed justices Charles Canady, Ricky Polston and Jorge Labarga. Polston and Canady are considered the two most conservative members of the court. I wasnt really looking for any ideology, I was looking for compassion, Crist said of his previous appointments. They needed to be people that had empathy. I wanted to nd their heart and soul in the interview process.Governors race will shape state Supreme Court CRIST SCOTT | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATEWoman injured while celebrating 95th birthdayLAKE WALES (AP) A woman celebrating her 95th birthday is recovering after a man lost control of his Jeep and drove it into the front wall of an Italian restaurant in Lake Wales.

Ocala police say the 69-year-old woman got into her car Monday night after serving meals when a man hiding inside put a knife to her neck and told her to drive. Police say he told her to pull over, put a rope around her neck and dragged her from the car, then beat her with a small club. Police say the man ordered her back into the car and removed her dentures when she tried to bite him. Police say the suspect later beat the woman unconscious in a Kmart parking lot.

Sheriffs spokeswoman Mary Justino says Norris cut a wedge in the trees trunk so it would fall away from the house. However, wood rot in the bottom of the tree made it fall prematurely. Justino says Manahan was sitting in a lawn chair at an unsafe distance from the tree, watching her brother work when she was struck.

After being with my company four years, I feel like I should make more money and I have the right to complain about this. Vanessa Dear Vanessa: Sorry, no. You dont have a right to complain. You agreed on your pay, and you are doing your job the way your char acter and integrity tell you to do the job. If someone else is a slacker in the same position, that doesnt mean a whole lot in terms of your personal compensation. Ive got several people at my company who hold similar positions and make similar money. Some of them have been here for years, while others are relatively new. I dont pay people for how long theyve been in the building, and I dont want anyone on my team who doesnt give 100 percent. Now, that may be a different issue than pay, but at the same time I dont want someone who gives 50 percent and I pay them 50 percent. I want everyone at 100 percent, but that kind of thing isnt your problem. Its the companys problem. If you honestly feel like you deserve a raise because of your effort and perfor mance, sit down with your leader and make a logical and reasonable argument for why you deserve more money. But dont bring up your co-worker and what he or she makes. Thats just not relevant. What is relevant is your worth and the value you bring to the organization. Dave Dear Dave: My wife and I live in New York, and weve had whole life insurance for several years. Theres a 7 percent penalty if we cash out the policies now. If we wait a few years, we wont have to pay into the premiums anymore. Brian Dear Brian: The reason you wont have to pay into the premiums anymore is because you built up enough savings, and they are not paying you enough on the savings to amount to anything. The amount they should have been paying you versus the way they were ripping you off will buy the life insurance. Its not like you can pay for it because you still have probability of death. As long as theres a probability of death theres a cost to life insurance. The only question is whether youre paying out of your savings account or your checking account. In this case, youre paying out of savings. The seven percent gure is just your surrender charge, so Id get out of that policy soon. If you die today, do you know what theyll pay? Face value. In other words, youll lose your savings. Id get term life insur ance in place by the end of the week. Compare prices on term, because youll be surprised at the difference some companies charge for term insurance. Make sure you get good 15to 20-year level terms policies valued at 10 to 12 times your annual incomes. Dave Follow Dave on Twitter at @DaveRamsey and on the Web at www.daveramsey. com.Asking for a raise NEW YORK (AP) The stock market pulled back slightly Tuesday, following two days of gains, as investors focused on the damage that ongoing geopolitical tensions were causing the global economy. Energy stocks were among the biggest decliners, dragged down by lower oil prices. U.S. stock indexes opened modestly higher but turned lower at mid-morning and stayed there for the rest of the day. Investors took a cue from Europe, where Germanys benchmark index fell more than 1 percent and Frances CAC 40 fell nearly 1 percent. An indicator of German investor condence dropped to its lowest level in 20 months. Investors worried that the Ukraine crisis will start dragging down the German economy, Europes largest. The continent is much more exposed to Russia than the U.S. is. Europe also gets most of its natural gas from Russia. The Ukraine situation has dragged the German stock market down more than 8 percent from its early July peak. The Ukraine-Russia situation may be at a standstill politically, but it is weighing on the German economy and, more broadly, the eurozone, said Sean Lynch, a managing director at Wells Fargo Private Bank. It has been a quiet week for investors over all, with little economic data or company earnings to work through. Absent hard data to pull the market higher, the current trend for the market is down, Lynch said. Investors are also watching political machinations and violence unfold in oil-rich Iraq. On Tuesday, that nations embattled prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, tried to stay in power as Iraqi politicians and the international community rallied behind a political competitor. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 9.44 points, or 0.1 percent, to 16,560.54. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 3.17 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,933.75 and the Nasdaq composite fell 12.08 points, or 0.3 percent, to 4,389.25. Energy stocks in the S&P 500 fell 0.7 percent, the most of the 10 sectors in the index.US stocks fall as risks remainLinkage refers to an assembly of bodies connected to manage forces and movement. For example, think email. We have our binary buddy, our tablet, phone and laptop all receiving our email, which mysteriously appears on all the devices; and if we delete from one, it eventually deletes from the others. Obviously they are linked together in some fashion. The fascination in this example is often these devices are different manufacturers one may be a Microsoft product, another an Apple product, and perhaps an Android-based device. Something links them all together to provide us our email. What is the common denominator that allows linkage from diverse systems? The root of this linkage is our email provider. As long as a device can transmit to the provider the correct access codes (user name and password), it will be able to send and receive our email. Linkage is dependent on access. While each device is separate and independent, they all share the same access codes. Why is this important? Recently several folks have called and said they could no longer get their emails. Requesting information as to what had led up to this dilemma revealed that for some reason, they had not been able to access their email on one of their devices. A quick call to their email provider, who services only their email, not their devices, and their email password was reset. Now with a reset password they were able to get email on the device they were working with. But none of their other devices received or sent email. Each of our devices stores our user name and password independently of the other devices we use. If we change the password on one device, it does not automatically change on other devices. The device with the cor rect password will receive and send email; the others will continue to send an incorrect password to our email provider, who will reject the request, and email will not ow for that device until we change the stored password to the new and correct password. Some common email password problems: Those who use an email client such as Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird or Apple Mail will have the user name and password stored within the program itself. We cannot change our providers password by typing in a new password when it asks us for one. However we must change the stored password within these programs after we update our password at the provider. Example: We use Comcast mail and we go to and change our password. The mail program will retain the old password, which no longer will work, until we go to account proper ties, servers, and replace the old password with the new one. Our phones and tablets work similarly go to settings, accounts, bring up the Mail settings, and re-enter the correct password. Our devices work together independently. Linkage via access.

Her boyfriend has broken up with her. Each day the 26-year-old eats alone and sleeps alone. Even her own family members are afraid to touch her months after she sur vived Ebola. Long gone are the days when she was vomiting blood and wracked by fever. And even with a certicate of health declaring her as having recovered, she says its still as though Ebola survivor is burned on her esh. Ebola has ruined my life even though I am cured, she says. No one wants to spend a minute in my company for fear of being contaminated. The Ebola virus is only transmitted through direct contact with bodily uids of the sick, such as blood, saliva, urine, sweat or semen. When the rst cases emerged in Guinea back in March, no one had ever confronted such a virulent and gruesome disease in this corner of Africa. The current outbreak now has killed more than 1,000 people, according to the latest gures from the World Health Organization. The fatality rate in previous Ebola outbreaks has been up to 90 percent, though health ofcials say this time up to half of victims are surviving. While there is no specic treatment for Ebola, patients can be given supportive care such as intravenous uids to keep them hydrated. If they can live long enough to develop antibodies to the virus they can survive, though they could still contract other strains of Ebola in the future, medical experts say. Health workers hope that seeing living proof that people can survive Ebola will encourage fearful communities to get medical care instead of hiding the sick at home where they can infect relatives. In Sierra Leone, Sulaiman Kemokai, 20, was released from an Ebola treatment center on Sunday after spending 25 days there. He still feels stiffness in his joints but says he is gaining strength each day. When I became sick, I was scared to go to hospital, I hid from my family, from health workers. After four days I couldnt hide anymore, I was too sick. An Ebola ambulance collected me and took me to the hospital, he recalls. But some within his community are reluctant to have any physical contact with Kemokai. Those released from treatment centers are no longer contagious, though Ebola can still be present in mens semen for up to seven weeks. Kemokai will have more family support than most: His older brother and sister also have survived Ebola, while the disease took their mothers life. Fanta, the Guinean medical student, says she was working as an intern at a clinic in Conakry, the capital, when a patient came in from the provinces sick with what doctors initially thought was malaria. She took the mans vital signs but as is common in Guinea she had no protective gloves or face mask. About two weeks later, in mid-March, she started having diarrhea and soon was vomiting blood. She says her lasting troubles began when doctors declared her cured and discharged her from the isolation ward at the hospital in early April.Ebola survivor shunned by boyfriend, even school Thomas Quigley, M.D. Board Certified Eye Physician & Surgeon F R E E E Y E E X A M F O R N E W P A T I E N T S complete medical exam with one of our board certified eye doctors includes prescription for eyeglasses, and tests for cataracts, glaucoma and other eye diseases.

Useppa (Island) had a massive school of overslot breeder reds on it that chummed up like jacks on whitebait, Barton recalled, saying it was an absolutely amazing week of shing that hell never forget. Jared Shackelford said he was shing the mouths of the Punta Gorda Isles canals as the water started to rise. The Punta Gorda resident remembers the snook going crazy, and said he caught nearly 30 sh, all slot-sized or bigger, in an hour using Storm swimbaits. But as Charley roared closer to Charlotte Harbor, the sh ed or hunkered down. Jeff Kincaid, owner of Captain Teds Tackle, said he shed the night before the storm with no luck. The sh pulled up and left, Kincaid said. A couple days before they were hitting OK, but basically we had a stalled-out front that was guiding (Charley). And then that afternoon that front started to move; saw clouds off of (the) Texas coastline shift in the radar, and then Charley wobbled, and right up the street it came. HURRICANE CHARLEY VS. FISHIN FRANKS It was the day after Charley charged through Charlotte County and left a permanently deep scar. Fishin Frank Hommema had ridden out the storm at his house in Harbour Heights, which was totaled. His boat was destroyed and his business, Fishin Franks Bait & Tackle in Charlotte Harbor, was in shambles. Dozens of dead shrimp, sh and other bait were strewn about the shop, mixed in with the tattered remains of thousands of dollars worth of rods, reels and shing tackle. The roof, like so many others in the area, had suffered major damage. As Hommema and Fishin Franks general manager Robert Lugiewicz sifted through the rubble searching for anything salvageable, a truck pulled into the parking lot. A man got out and unloaded a large cooler, saying it was from Mark Nichols. Inside were ice, water and sandwiches a STANDING UP TO CHARLEYBy MATT STEVENSASSISTANT SPORTS EDITORFishing community shows its mettle; shares memoriesSUN FILE PHOTOWhile Hurricane Charley brought some memorable shing around Charlotte Harbor both before it struck and after it passed, the local shing community was hit hard by the Category 4 storm.

Atherholt said the teams practices began with nine players, not enough to sustain a squad. Were a smaller school with a lot of multi-sport athletes, he said. The schools we were going up against, theyve got a lot of kids who are year-round football guys. In its place, the school will compete in ag football with Qualls as coach. The Mustangs will play in the Florida Christian Activities Associations Southwest Conference. Atherholt said it was a better t for the schools athletes, many of whom wanted to play football but didnt want to risk injury that might impact their participation in other sports.CCS shifts to flag football PREP FOOTBALL: Community ChristianBy ROB SHORE and ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITERS COUNTDOWN TO KICKOFF16Days until the regular-season opener on Aug. 29FOOTBALL | 5 CAL Tam_ -_ I/' -_-yam`/"'. _...C:-._ v __1 `r' T'-46.iItoI hSUNign!`1 7'f so p M jiK1,b

Online: The Southeastern Conferences new network debuts Thursday, promising more than 1,000 live events this year and a reach that includes most major television providers in the South. The network will be welcomed by millions of fans of who cant get enough coverage of the most powerful confer ence in college sports, and SEC ofcials think it will increase revenue. Getting the network off the ground with operations at 14 different campuses wasnt easy or inexpensive. Some schools needed to build professional studios, hire a video staff and upgrade stadium and arena TV facilities to accommodate the network, created as a partnership between the SEC and ESPN. Each school is in a little different spot coming into this, SEC associate commissioner for network relations Charlie Hussey said. A lot of our schools had done a good amount of work already in the infrastructure for this, while others had a little further along to go. But well be ready for launch day. Florida already has substantial video departments. Each of the 14 SEC representatives must have a studio in place for live interviews that the network can access from its home base in Charlotte, N.C. The schools also need equipment for visual production for games, some of which will be televised, others which will be broadcast online. All that equipment makes it easier for schools to broadcast events, and the SEC Network guaranteed it will air at least 40 events per school digitally.

The Denver Broncos sustained a major blow Tuesday when linebacker Danny Trevathan went down with a fracture in his left knee that will sideline him for six to eight weeks. The medial tibial impaction fracture occurred during a running play in a team drill at practice. Trevathan led the Broncos in tackles with 124 last season. They told me that my ACL and MCL are ne, but that I have a fracture in my knee, Trevathan said. The doctor told me I was going to be out four to eight weeks, but I told him four to six. Im not tripping. I will bounce back. Im a soldier. Taking his place for the remainder of practice was Brandon Marshall, who likely would assume Trevathans starting role. Dolphins sign Quinn as backup QB insurance: The Miami Dolphins signed quarterback Brady Quinn, who was brought in for a workout on Monday. The team is concerned about the back spot with Matt Moore recovering from a shoulder injury. Miami also looked at Rex Grossman and John Skelton. Grossman signed with the Cleveland Browns and hopes to play in Mondays preseason game against his fomer team, the Washington Redskins. Around the league: Rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel and veteran Brian Hoyer will split first-team reps for the Browns on Monday night. Coach Mike Pettine will name a starter for the game on Thursday, when the team is off Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick said he will be suspended the first four games of the 2014 season for a failed drug test. Scandrick started 15 games last season and had 64 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble. The Pittsburgh Steelers placed punter Adam Podlesh on the reserve/ did not report list. The 31-year-old signed a one-year contract in April after spending three seasons with the Chicago Bears. Wide receiver Jordy Nelson returned to practice with the Green Bay Packers on a limited basis. The veteran standout was held out Monday because of a hamstring injury. Arizona Cardinals pass rusher John Abrahams excused absence from training camp is expected to end soon, coach Bruce Arians said. Abraham was arrested on drunken driving charges in late June in an Atlanta suburb and has a court date set for Aug. 20.Broncos lose LB Trevathan NFL NOTEBOOKBY THE SPORTS XCHANGEAP FILE PHOTOBrady Quinn, who played for the New York Jets last year, signed with the Miami Dolphins his seventh NFL team.

Seferian-Jenkins took a signicant number of repetitions in practice Monday with the starting unit, a sign that the second-round pick from Washington likely will play a major role in the offense early this season. You have to let it play out, coach Lovie Smith said. But for the ones that have been out here for training camp, just about every day hes done something that you could like. You dont have to look real hard to like something the guy has done. So hes warranted more time moving up through the ranks. Hes got a great future ahead of him. Its as simple as that. Despite the two holding penalties on the opening drive of the second half, Seferian-Jenkins also had a 23-yard pass reception to convert a third down. You do the things in practice and you kind of get away with it and then you do it in a game and theres a ag, he said. Or you didnt open quick enough. Little things. Or the linebacker jumps the route and tips the ball just a little bit because you didnt get outside on your right landmark. It was just the small stuff, and that was the biggest thing. It was just really the technique, and everybody has really good technique. The team has plenty of depth at tight end, with Tim Wright, Brandon Myers and Luke Stocker. Seferian-Jenkins obviously has the least amount of experience, but Smith said his mistakes are correctable. In practice, you dont know how far you can go as far as holding and things like that, Smith said. So you have to get in games and you have to get calls. Thats when you learn, once youve got your hand slapped a little bit. I didnt see anything that wasnt correctable. Incognito option? As questions continue to cloud the offensive line and especially the guards, the Bucs remain open to possible solutions. When asked about whether one of those answers could be signing former Pro Bowl guard Richie Incognito, Smith didnt completely rule it out. He didnt seem to embrace it, either. All players that are available, we look to see if they would fit into our program all players, Smith said. Ill just kind of leave it at that. If were really interested in someone, well bring them in. Theres no indication the Bucs have brought in Incognito, even for a workout. Smith noted later that he didnt bring up Incognito during the news conference and that any roster addition would have to work in the locker rooms chemistry. Incognito remains unemployed after last seasons harassment scandal with the Dolphins and then-teammate Jonathan Martin. If a player doesnt fit in the locker room, we have to go a different direction, said Smith, who was speaking generally and not about a specific player. Its as simple as that. Injury update: DaQuan Bowers and Steven Means were both held out of practice with upper leg/ groin injuries. Bowers, a 2011 second-round pick, had three tackles in the preseason opener. He also missed practice time last week and is seeing more snaps at defensive tackle instead of end. Hopefully well be able to get them out there before long, Smith said.Tight end overcomes rookie mistakesBY THE TAMPA BAY TIMES NFL: Tampa Bay notebookUSA TODAY SPORTS PHOTO BY MELINA VASTOLAAustin Seferian-Jenkins had two catches on Friday against Jacksonville in the preseason opener.

The Sun /Wednesday, August 13, 2014 SP Page 3 CARDINALS 7, STONE CRABS 6 HITTER OF THE GAME Johnny Field, Stone Crabs: The center fielder seemed to hit the ball hard in every at-bat, going 2 for 4 with a two-run home run, a double, a walk and two runs scored. PITCHER OF THE GAME Jared Mortenson, Stone Crabs: Despite some struggles with his command early, the right-hander managed to stay in the game five innings and give up just two runs on six hits while striking out six. KEY INNING Eighth: The Stone Crabs had a two-run lead enetering the frame, but the Cardinals used two walks, an error and back-to-back RBI singles to take a one-run lead. QUOTE OF THE DAY Manager Jared Sandberg: Whether youre down to your last inning, out, strike, whatever it may be, we feel like were still in it.

He suffered the same fate on Tuesday. Back-to-back doubles to lead off the 10th inning carried the Cardinals to a 7-6 victory over the Charlotte Stone Crabs, snapping their nine-game home winning streak. I was hoping I wouldnt have to do a repeat of what I did the last time against these guys, Jensen said. I was hoping I wouldnt do that again, and of course I do it again. So its just frustrating. You just try to move forward. Its just one of those things you kind of, I guess, have to wear. Jensen said he was throwing strikes with all his pitches, and he even jammed right elder Ildermo Vargas with his curveball. Despite his best efforts, second baseman Mason Katz lined a double down the left-eld line and Vargas brought him home with a bloop double over rst baseman Patrick Leonards head. The pitches were just up enough. So a couple of bad breaks there, manager Jared Sandberg said. But hes able to get out of the inning with just the one run, so we denitely battled throughout. The Stone Crabs held a two-run lead entering the eighth inning on the strength of two RBI singles from Tyler Goeddel and home runs from right elder Marty Gantt and center elder Johnny Field, but the Cardinals used two walks off righthander Ryan Garton, Goeddels error and back-to-back RBI singles off reliever Jose Alberto Molina to turn that decit into a one-run advantage. Charlotte came from behind with two outs in the ninth to tie it on Maxx Tissenbaums fth home run of the season into the home bullpen in right eld. There were a couple times where we made it back and sort of hung around in innings, Tissenbaum said. Its one of those things where were ready to (come back) every night. Right-hander Jared Mortenson started for the Stone Crabs, giving up two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out six over ve innings. Garton was charged with three runs (one earned) on a hit and two walks over 223 innings, and Molina took the blown save after giving up an unearned run on two hits. Tuesdays loss, plus the Bradenton Marauders win, dropped the Stone Crabs six games out of rst place in the Florida State Leagues South Division with 18 games remaining. These are the guys were supposed to beat to get to the playoffs, and I just keep making mistakes like that, Jensen said. The guys behind me are working hard, and I cant even get out of the rst inning. Its very frustrating. But all I can do is move forward.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or one gets away from JensenBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER FLORIDA STATE LEAGUE: Palm Beach 7, Charlotte 6 CARDINALS AT STONE CRABSWHO: Palm Beach (31-20) at Charlotte (25-24) WHEN: Today, 6:30 p.m. WHERE: Charlotte Sports Park PROBABLE PITCHERS: Tyrell Jenkins (5-3, 3.45) vs. Reinaldo Lopez (6-4, 3.34) ADMISSION: Free for Sgt. Wilson Night (tribute resched uled from Aug. 4) RADIO: 91.7 FM or www. PROMOTION: Weenie Wednesday putting his career in jeopardy. Its extremely tough, Stone Crabs manager Jared Sandberg said. You start to see a kid hopefully start to turn a corner on the baseball eld, but he was obviously still struggling with off-theeld issues. Sandberg informed Sale of the suspension prior to Mondays game and had a 30-minute conversation with him afterwords. He and Sale both addressed the team on Tuesday before Sale left the facility. The outelders teammates declined to comment. Life is bigger than baseball, is what (Rays director of minor league operations Mitch Lukevics said), Sandberg said. And its so true. Thats the message I delivered to the team when I told them the news that Josh was being suspended. He also spoke to the team and apologized and told the team to learn from his mistakes. Its sad. Sale was on the upswing in the rst six games this month, going 11 for 22 with nine RBIs and raising his season average from .226 to .241. We all painted a positive picture in the publics eye, Sandberg said. I dont think he was trying to trick anybody; he felt like he had turned a corner as well and was going in the right direction. He was just struggling with the rigors of downtime in professional baseball, dealing with failure and struggling to cope with the failures on the eld. Two weeks ago, Sale called the suspension that cost him all of the 2013 season a reality check. He said his teammates havent put me in any situations or disrespected me at all this year, and that he just needed to continue to keep my nose clean and stay out of harms way. Lukevics, who said in June that he had seen a signicant change in Sales maturation, expressed his disappointment in the outelder on Tuesday. In a statement, he said Sale will follow all guidelines that MLBs minor league drug program has laid out and will work closely with our Employee Assistance Program to determine a way forward. Rays outelder Kevin Kiermaier, who was also drafted in 2010, addressed the suspension on Tuesday: You control your own destiny and he hasnt made many good decisions, he told reporters. For him, third offense, anyone who feels bad for him, I dont know why. Its just foolishness. Rays manager Joe Maddon said Sale has only himself to blame. I dont know the kid really well. The rules are in place. They all know whats going on, Maddon told reporters. He has nobody to blame but himself in this situation, and thats it. From my perspective, Im not there all the time to know him, recognize him or whatever kind of advice we give him. The systems in place, the rules are working, hes got to be held accountable. Sale was hitting .238 with four home runs and 46 RBIs over 90 games this season, including .440 with nine RBIs this month. He received a $1.62 million bonus when he signed and has yet to play above High-A Sandberg said hes not sure if the Rays will give Sale another chance. Theres so much embarrassment that goes into these suspensions over the course of the last couple of years, Sandberg said. And weve given second chances, but off the top of my head, I cant remember a third chance. So I dont know what the organization is going to do. I think hes going to have to go through some steps to prove to them again that he can be a model citizen and a role model for the young kids. Represent the Rays in the ways that we would all like the players to represent us. And then its the baseball evaluation part; did he do enough this year to garner somebody saying, Look, this guy can play. Lets give him a third chance. On the mend: Rays outfielder David DeJesus took batting practice on the field with the Stone Crabs for the first time since fracturing his left hand on June 18. He will work out on the field with the GCL Rays today before heading back up to Tropicana Field to set up a schedule for his rehab assignment. It was a good day, DeJesus said. (The hand) responded well. I didnt really worry about it. Now its just about getting timing right. After being off for two months, Ive got to work back into it. But I feel confident in where I am today. Take it slow: Right-hander Ryne Stanek (right shoulder fatigue) has resumed throwing and thinks he could be ready to return to the mound in a few weeks. The 2013 first-round pick hasnt pitched since July 19, but he said he expects to be able to pitch again before the end of the regular season. Back in action: The Stone Crabs activated reserve catcher Luke Bailey (oblique) off the disabled list on Tuesday to take Sales spot on the roster. The 23-year-old went 0 for 4 with a walk and a strikeout as Charlottes designated hitter.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or PAGE 1 NUMBERS GAME16Suspensions of a Tampa Bay Rays minor-leaguer for drug-related reasons since the start of the 2012 season, which the Tampa Bay Times reported appears to be the most in baseball during that span Golf Directory 5301 HERON CREEK BLVD., NORTH PORT Between US 41 & I-75 Exit 182 423-6955 Take a tour online at: Nice People, Great Golf Call 625-6911 for Tee Times & Lessons Deep Creek Golf Club KINGSWAY COUNTRY CLUB BECOME A MEMBER FOR THE DAY 1 mile east off I-75 exit 170 (Kings Highway).

Balfour seeking comfort zoneARLINGTON, Texas Even pitching with a 7-0 lead in the ninth inning Monday night, struggling right-hander Grant Balfour made things uncomfortable by walking two consecutive Texas Rangers. While manager Joe Maddon acknowledged the increasing challenge in finding safe spots to use Balfour youve got to walk that line he maintained the deposed closers problems are not with how he is actually throwing the baseball but his approach and pitch selection in doing so. I think for the most part, his stuff has been good, Maddon said. Its just a matter of him trusting himself and believing in his abilities and hell be fine. For proof, Maddon cites Balfours .224 opponents average and that the primary reason for his 5.24 ERA is the high number of batters he has walked 35 in 442/3 innings. When hes actually challenging guys over the plate, theyre not doing a lot of damage, Maddon said. He has to understand we believe in him so much more than he probably believes in himself right now. With Balfour in the first year of a two-year, $12 million deal, the Rays would seem to have no choice but to find a way to use Balfour comfortably. Kiermaier OK: Outfielder Kevin Kiermaier was relieved to wake up Tuesday less sore than expected, and after taking a few swings and going through mobility drills, he was cleared to return to the lineup. He was especially relieved since he didnt know why his lower back tightened up so badly that he ended up leaving Mondays game, attributing the discomforting feeling to a not-so-graceful dive or slide on the bases. I knew it was something weird, he said. I hadnt had anything like this. Records tied: The Rays on Monday matched an American League mark by logging their 15th consecu tive road game of not allowing more than three runs, done last by the 1968 Indians. The major-league mark is 21, by the 1908 Cubs. The Rays also tied a team record by allowing no more than three runs in seven consecutive games overall. Rays pitchers also tied a team record with 54 strikeouts over a four-game span. Miscellany: The Rays announced Saturdays game against the Yankees as a sellout and said only limited tickets remain for Sunday. Shortstop Yunel Escobar was out of the lineup; Maddon said he wanted to give him a day off with a fly ball pitcher in Hellickson on the mound. Outfielder Wil Myers (right wrist) walked and stole a base in his only plate appearance before his rehab game with Triple-A Durham was suspended by rain. MLB: Tampa Bay notebookBy MARC TOPKINTAMPA BAY TIMES RAYS AT RANGERSWHO: Tampa Bay (58-60) at Texas (46-72) WHEN: Today, 8:05 p.m. WHERE: Globe Life Park, Arlington, Texas TV: Sun Sports RADIO: 105.9 FM, 620 AM, 1220 AM, 1480 AM, 1530 AM, 1580 AM* Tuesdays game was not completed in time for this edition MIAMI Jarred Cosart pitched seven innings in a duel with Adam Wainwright to earn his rst victory for the Miami Marlins, who beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-0 Tuesday. Cosart allowed three hits and one walk to win for the rst time since July 7. The victory came in his second start for Miami after being acquired from Houston in a trade. Hes 1-1 with Miami and 10-7 overall this year. Wainwright (14-7), making his rst start against the Marlins since 2010, missed a chance to became the rst 15-game winner in the majors. He went seven innings and allowed three runs, with two coming on a home run off the foul pole by Donovan Solano only the sixth homer allowed by the Cardinals ace. The Cardinals lost for the fourth time in ve games. They had totaled 29 hits in the past two games but managed only four against Cosart and three relievers. The Marlins are 15-10 since the All-Star break. Red Sox 3, Reds 2: In Cincinnati, Yoenis Cespedes hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning, lifting the Boston past the Reds. Pirates 4, Tigers 2: In Pittsburgh, Edinson Volquez allowed two runs over six innings and the Pirates jumped on Detroit early. Nationals 7, Mets 1: In New York, Michael Taylor homered in his big league debut and the Washington Nationals backed Doug Fister with three more home runs in a romp over the Mets. Dodgers 4, Braves 2: In Atlanta, Dan Haren pitched six solid innings and sparked the go-ahead rally with a single, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to another win over the skidding Braves. Athletics 11, Royals 3: In Kansas City, Mo., Jon Lester pitched six strong innings and Josh Donaldson homered twice and drove in four runs as the Oakland Athletics beat Kansas City 11-3 Tuesday night, snapping the Royals eight-game losing streak. Astros 10, Twins 2: In Houston, Chris Carter homered twice to lead the Astros over Minnesota Around the majors: Bud Selig hopes to introduce his successor as MLB Commissioner, perhaps Thursday. Baseballs 30 owners meet in Baltimore this week to vote on Seligs replacement. The three finalists are MLB Chief Operating Officer Rob Manfred; Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner and Tim Brosnan, MLB Vice President of Business. Justin Verlanders sore right shoulder will likely force him to miss at least one start, the latest setback for the reeling Detroit Tigers.Marlins beat Wainwright MLB ROUNDUPBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NUMBERS GAME11Losses by the Atlanta Braves in their last 13 games, including two in a row to the Los Angeles Dodgers ............................................................................... .


The Sun /Wednesday, August 13, 2014 SP Page 5 Another factor in the decision was the areas lack of eight-man programs, which forced the school to make long-distance treks for away games last year. Really, theres only one other eight-man team (in the area), Atherholt said. Oasis Charter in Cape Coral is the closest and theyre an hour away. Some of our games would be as far as Vero Beach, Tampa or Lakeland. He said the school might revisit the idea of a tackle football program. Community Christian is the second area school to cancel its football season. Imagine School announced last week it would not play this season after a low turnout on the rst three days of practice. Besides ag football, Community Christian will compete this fall in golf (boys and girls), cross country and volleyball. Community Christian also elds a ag football team at the middle school level. Atherholt said the decision was made last Tuesday after early eight-man tackle practices yielded disappointing turnouts. The decision to shift to ag football was announced to the school last Wednesday. Community Christian was coming off a tough season, where the Mustangs struggled to make numbers as injuries piled up. The team did not complete its original seven-game schedule. Atherholt said he didnt want to eld a team if merely nishing the season was the goal. We want to compete, he said. From a team perspective, we want a team, but we dont want the goal to be to nish the season.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or and Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or PAGE 1 Sports On TVGOLF4 p.m. TGC USGA, U.S. Amateur Championship, rst round matches, at Atlanta 5:30 a.m. TGC European PGA Tour, Made in Den mark, rst round, part I, at Farso, DenmarkLITTLE LEAGUE SOFTBALL9 p.m. ESPN2 World Series, championship, teams TBD, at Portland, Ore.MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL12:30 p.m. MLB Boston at Cincinnati 3:40 p.m. WGN Chicago White Sox at San Fran cisco 7 p.m. FSFL St. Louis at Miami ESPN N.Y.

Sterling bought the team in 1981 for $12 million and presided over decades of losing seasons before engaging in a fierce legal battle with his estranged wife to hold on to his most prized asset. The team said the sale closed after a Los Angeles court confirmed the authority of Shelly Sterling, on behalf of the Sterling Family Trust, to sell the franchise to the former Microsoft CEO. I hate losing the team, she said at a news conference. She later added, It feels good. It would have felt good to own the team, too. The NBA Board of Governors had previously approved the sale. Really excited in a pretty hardcore way to continue the path to making the Clippers a better and better basketball team, and a better and better citizen of the Los Angeles community, Ballmer told The Associated Press in a phone interview. The bizarre drama began in April when a recording surfaced of Donald Sterling scolding his girlfriend for bringing black men to Clippers games. The audio spurred the NBA to ban Sterling for life and fine him $2.5 million. Sterling was apologetic after the audio recording went viral, but his mea culpa backfired when he criticized Lakers great Magic Johnson, who had been photographed with Sterlings girlfriend, as a bad role model for kids because he had HIV. The 80-year-old real estate mogul was roundly condemned from locker rooms to the Oval Office, where President Barack Obama called Sterlings remarks incredibly offensive racist statements. With the NBA threatening to seize the team and auction it, Sterling initially gave his wife of 58 years permission to negotiate a sale but then refused to sign the Ballmer deal. He said he would sue the league instead and then revoked the trust, which his lawyers said effectively killed the deal. Shelly Sterling removed Donald as a trustee after doctors found he had symptoms of Alzheimers disease. Adam Streisand, Ballmers attorney, said Tuesday that Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas signed the order authorizing the sale even if Donald Sterlings attorneys filed an appeal. Pierce ODonnell, Shelly Sterlings attorney, said at the news confer ence that Donald Sterling had filed a petition opposing the sale. NBA: L.A. ClippersBALLMER | QUICK HITSCRIMINAL CHARGES POSSIBLE FOR STEWARTTony Stewart could still face criminal charges for running down Kevin Ward Jr. with his sprint car, even if the three-time NASCAR champion didnt mean to kill Ward, hurt him or even scare him. Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero, who announced on Tuesday that the investigation is continuing, has said that his initial ndings have turned up nothing that would indicate criminal intent in the crash at the Canandaigua Motorsports Park. But legal experts agree that does not mean Stewart is in the clear. The NASCAR star could be charged with second-degree manslaughter under New York law if prosecutors believe he recklessly caused the death of another person, with negligent homicide another possibility, according to criminal law professor Corey Rayburn Yung of the Kansas University School of Law. The question over whether someone was reckless is a factual one, and one a prosecutor might let a jury decide, said Yung, who also posts at the Concurring Opinion blog. ... 3M reached a three-year deal with Hendrick Motorsports and will serve as Jeff Gordons primary sponsor for 11 races a season starting in 2015. 3M will serve as the associate sponsor for Gordons No. 24 Chevrolet in all other races from 2015-17. 3M had been on Greg Biffles car for Roush-Fenway Racing.PRO BASKETBALLPacers believe George will make full recovery: The Pacers expect Paul George to make a full recovery from the compound fracture in his right leg.

What the Pacers dont know yet is precisely how long that will be. George underwent surgery Aug. 2 and returned to Indianapolis on Aug. 5. He is recovering at his home.

Page 6 SP The Sun /Wednesday, August 13, 2014 godsend post-hurricane. I live over in Stuart (Fla.), and we were in three hurricanes in a year also, so you can sympathize with people who were in the heart of it all, said Nichols, owner and CEO of D.O.A. Fishing Lures. Those guys (at Fishin Franks) are great guys; Ive always liked them. Like their attitude. Straight up, know what theyre talking about, good people. Theyre just good people. I like em, what can I say, he added. Theyre as crazy as I am; maybe thats what it is. But Nichols, who said he has known Hommema through the shing indus try for at least 15 years, had another surprise. A month later, a box arrived that Lugiewicz estimated at 3 feet by 3 feet, weighing 50 pounds. It was brimming with D.O.A. lures. When we heard that their place really got trashed for me to help replace, you know, stick $400 or $500 worth of lures in there, the return in making you feel good is a million dollars, Nichols said. So its a no-brainier, in my opinion, to help people out in a situation like that. Hurricanes are good for pulling people together. Everybodys pretty much miserable, so you might as well work together. To this day and, according to Hommema, as long as theres a Fishin Franks theres a prominent display of D.O.A. lures for customers to choose from. And while Nichols generosity made its own impact, it was the Pirate Crew of employees at Fishin Franks and members of the local community that pulled together and helped pick the store up by the bootstrap. Ultimately, it was rebuilt and reopened in mid-December 2004. I just feel so lucky that so many people came to my aid, Hommema said. Its the people around you, the people you live with every day, theyre the ones that put you back. This store belongs to the people of the area. Bruce Laishley, owner of Laishley Marine in Punta Gorda, loaned Fishin Franks a trailer that was used to store the salvageable items from the shop. Chuck Hepp and his crew from Chucks Custom Carpentry volunteered their time. Hommema also praised Don Riggs Concrete and Ray Smith Excavating in helping to rebuild the shop. Port Charlotte residents Bill and Linda Kopycki didnt hesitate to stop by and make sure their favorite bait shop was OK. We went to Fishin Franks just to see how they made out, and the store was a mess, Linda said. Everything had been removed from the walls and put into tubs and stored I dont know where. And we said, Well, how are you going to get all this back? And they said, Well, its just going to take us a long time. And (Bill and I) looked at each other and said, Were here to help, Linda said. The Kopyckis came back the next day around ve days after the storm and went through tub after tub of hooks and gizmos (as Linda called them) and lures, sorting them out and putting them back on the wall. We just wanted to help. We enjoy Fishin Franks, and we wanted to see him open, said Linda, who added that the mood around the store was generally good. It wasnt a matter of people standing around feeling sorry for themselves, Bill said. It was just like, OK, this is what we gotta do. For the Kopyckis, lending a helping hand was a way to say thank you. Frank has always been so good to us. well tell our friends, Hey, you gotta go see Frank; hell x you up with what you need, and hes always done it. So we thought, well, you know, this is the least we can do to help repay him, Bill said. The Kopyckis have been customers of Fishin Franks for 18 years. So what keeps them coming back? Frank, Linda said with a laugh. Frank taught me how to sh properly in Florida. CHARLEY GIVES PUNTA GORDA BAIT SHOP A SHINER Becky Adkins still wonders how Charley managed to make her shiner tank disappear, yet left the baitsh behind on the oor where the tank once stood. That tank, made of berglass and foam, was relatively lightweight. The tank that held her shrimp, however, was of heavier berglass and wood construction. It was still there. These are things a bait shop owner notices after a major hurricane wreaks havoc on her business. Oh my God, it was like a war hit, said Adkins, owner of Rio Villa Bait & Tackle in Punta Gorda. We lost a lot of the roof. My bait room was gone. My shiner tank was gone, but my shiners were on the oor. It was strange. My shrimp tank, all the water was sucked out of it, but they stayed. Adkins wasnt too concerned as Charley roared up the Southwest Florida coast. She assumed the storm was headed north of Punta Gorda, as it was forecast to do. I was (at the shop) until about 10:30 in the morning, and then one of my sons called and said, Mom, you better leave, Adkins said. So I went home. Never been through anything like that before in my life and never want to do it again. And I will never be that blas about something coming again. After a seven-month closure in the wake of the storm, Adkins reopened and slowly started seeing some familiar faces coming through the door. And she also saw the healing that shing provided in the eyes and voices of her customers. I know after I opened back up, I mean people were just they had a chance to relive it, and sometimes when you just talk about it with other people that have been through it with you, it just kind of makes it easier, Adkins said. And theyre doing something they enjoy anyway. Probably shing is the cheapest psychologist out there. A RETURN TO FISHING, AND MOVING ON Kincaid, of Captain Teds, recalled the rst few times he went shing after Charley, and by his account, the post-hurricane shing rivaled the action as the storm was approaching. The boats werent out there; there was so little pressure on the sh, whatever they saw they were eager to play with, Kincaid said. I remember 60-, 80sh mornings before Id come to work. You know, two packages of articial plastic baits and stuff like this, go through them, catching that many sh in the morning. Crazy. It helped to keep his mind off his old shop on U.S. 41 just south of Tarpon Boulevard, across the street from Whiskey Creek, which suffered signicant storm damage. Water damage; the wind force had blown the glass panels in to where grass blades and every thing else were wedged through the seals and inside the thing, Kincaid said. He moved Captain Teds Tackle to its current location at 1189 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte, in 2007. In the long run, the landlords raised the rent because there was only half the amount of buildings and all that stuff. The neighborhood that I was in, there were things that were covering up my business, that I couldnt actually do business there. It was a better t up here, Kincaid said of his current address. But even after moving on from Hurricane Charley, the storm always will stoke vivid memories for Kincaid. You mean like the U-Haul truck parked on top of the liquor store? The hardware store collapsed on its own footprint, just sucked in like it sucked it down from the outside in? The light poles being off of the (U.S.) 41 bridges? The amount of stuff that was just in the canals, the trailer parks off Kings Highway. Theres so many things that are out there that got damaged its hard to do it, but if you sit back and reect, ones just going to keep building to another and another and another, Kincaid said.Email: mstevens@sun-herald.comCHARLEYFROM PAGE 1SUN FILE PHOTOA sunken boat is washed up against the Gilchrist Park shing pier in Punta Gorda in the wake of Hurricane Charley. Linda and Bill Kopycki have learned a lot about saltwater shing after 18 years in Florida. Theyve also learned a thing or two about sur viving a major hurricane. The Kopyckis, originally from the Chicago area, were in their Port Charlotte home when Hurricane Charley hit on Friday, Aug. 13, 2004. We were in the hall, under a mattress, I was crying, and we thought we were going to die, Linda said. The Kopyckis lived to tell about the storm, but their vacation plans changed. What was really funny about it, and we still tell this whole story about it, is we were due to leave for the Keys the next morning, Bill said. And it was just like, OK the storms gonna hit Tampa, after the storm hits were gonna hook up the boat, jump in the car and head back down. But while Charley ruined those plans, the Kopyckis made due with what they had. We were without electricity but we had the BBQ (grill), we had six cases of beer, we had a freezer full of steaks and ribs, Bill said. And all packaged in two at a time, I could just open the freezer real fast, grab what I wanted and that was what was for dinner, Linda said. So thats how we survived, Bill added. When the Kopyckis rst started saltwater shing, they gured it couldnt be much different than the freshwater shing they were used to. They quickly learned that wasnt the case. When we rst moved here; we had been shing before and we thought we knew everything about shing, said Linda, who is also known locally as the Pink Kayak Lady. But we found out shing in saltwater is way different, just like gardening is way different, than anywhere else in the world. But when the couple started frequenting Fishin Franks Bait & Tackle, their luck changed. (Fishin) Frank took me out in the back parking lot (of his store) and showed me how to properly hold a shing rod, using the strength of my arm instead of my weak little wrist. He showed me how to cast, and kept doing it, doing it, doing it, until I got it right, Linda said. The Kopyckis regularly attend Fishin Franks monthly shing club meetings at Luigis restaurant in Port Charlotte when theyre not down in the Keys shing. Even after 18 years of being here we still learn something every time we go to one of those classes, Bill said. After Charley ravaged the Charlotte Harbor bait shop, the Kopyckis spent four days there helping to reorganize everything. Linda and I, our whole idea even when we went there, was to just help them get product back up on the shelves again so that they could open up, Bill said. Because all of our shing friends were saying the same thing: Oh my God, Franks is closed what are we gonna do? Where are we gonna get bait? Where are we gonna buy our tackle? Fishin Franks reopened in mid-December of 2004.Kopyckis know fishing, CharleyBy MATT STEVENSASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR FISHING: Hurricane CharleyHusband and wife are loyal customers of Fishin Franks PHOTO PROVIDEDLinda Pink Kayak Lady Kopycki with a catch-and-release snook.

August 13 19, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 3 You may have already heard that the world famous Sarasota Chalk Festival is moving to Venice this year. Its still being called the Sarasota Chalk Festival why? Im not sure. But, the important thing is its being held right here close to our readers. The festival will take place Nov. 10-11 and it is free to attend and take part in. The best way to get involved is by lling out the online application at www.chalkfestival. org. The festival accepts adults, students and children at both amateur and professional levels. In the meantime, there will be a Blanche and Baby Jane Drag Queen Bingo on Wednesday, Aug. 27, from 5 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at the Venice Community Center, 326 Nokomis Ave. South, Venice. This is a fundraiser for the Sarasota Chalk Festival. The cost is $35 for 20 games and it includes food. For information and tickets, visit blanche-baby-jane-drag-queen-bingo. Im really looking forward to the festival and I hope you will be too. Till next time! G ABRIELA M ENDOZA Lets Go! Editor Sarasotas Players Theatre turns 85 this year. I thought that might make it the oldest continuing operating community theater in the state. I was wrong. That honor seems to go to St. Petersburg City Theatre founded four years earlier in 1925. Older still is the Jacksonville Little Theatre, founded in 1919, but it was not in continuous operation all those years. It had some time off in the 1930s. Also older than the Players, according to my Google-assisted research, is the Gainesville Community Playhouse dating back to 1927. Since I could not find any others founded before 1929, that makes the Players the fourth oldest community theater, or the third oldest of those theaters in continuous operation. For my money, that speaks well of those communities. Their residents appreciated the value of the arts to enrich their lives, and they put their money into the creation of those theaters. Though the Players may be younger it has a strong and growing following thanks to a solid administrative staff these days. With Michelle Pingle watching the money and Jeffrey Kin riding herd over the artistic side, things are vastly improved. This also speaks volumes for the younger Venice Theatre, whose executive director Murray Chase has led the once Little and roughly 20-year younger theater to the top of all 10,000 community theaters in the U.S. Venice actually is the third largest in terms of budget etc. for any size city but number one for cities of its size. Chase also has been a help and inspiration to Kin and also to Rik Kirby at Manatee Players, which has that stunning new home in Bradenton and many national awards on its shelf. Those of us who live in Sun country reap the rewards of being at the heart of Floridas Cultural Coast. Take advantage of it. Support your local theater and once in a while venture forth on a cultural road trip to see what the others are doing.

AP PHOTOThis image released by DreamWorks II shows Helen Mirren in a scene from The Hundred-Foot Journey.Director Lasse Hallstrom has put together his latest cinematic dish The Hundred-Foot Journey as a tasty three-course meal that only slows between the main course and dessert. The appetizer is the Indian family taken on a journey across Europe by Papa (Om Puri), its bullheaded patriarch. When car problems leave the Kadam family stranded in a small city in the south of France, Papa believes hes been guided to a new spot for a family restaurant. The only problem is hes selected a location thats only 100 feet away from Le Saule Pleureur, one of the best restaurants in the region. It is run with an iron st by Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), who is determined her restaurant will earn a coveted second Michelin star. Hallstrom delicately blends the clash of cultures with tender moments of budding romance. The lightness early in the story sets up a rich main course, where Hallstrom turns up the emotional heat with surf-and-turf wars. Mirren brings the same reserved regalness that she displayed in The Queen to the role. Her work is made all that more delicious when she clashes with the big and broad performance by Puri. Equally delicious is the love/hate relationship between Hassan (Manish Dayal), an Indian chef with magical cooking skills, and Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), a sous chef who is drawn to Hassan but upset with how much hes trumped her in the kitchen. Hallstrom blends romance and cooking to create a sweet tale of love thats fty shades of gravy. Its the rare case where both sides are justied in their personal and culinary opinions. That makes it easy to root for them to nd a way to come together. The lm ends with a sweet treat. The problem is that just before the conclusion is served up, the lm drifts o to a storyline in Paris that has as much appeal as boiled water. Its not a long enough pause to forget how good the entire visual dining experi ence has been, but it doesnt add any seasoning to the stock. Most of The Hundred-Foot Journey is predictable, but thats like looking at a menu and ordering items youve had many times before. The familiar can be just as good if presented the right way. When Mirren is involved, characters are elevated to the highest quality. When a director serves up a lm like The Hundred-Foot Journey with so many layers of passion, its a rich and creamy treat.

6 Lets Go! E/N/C/V August 13 19, 2014 EVENTS ON THE COVER Charlotte Idol finale is a must-see SUN PHOTOS BY BETSY WILLIAMSAaron Thompson brought a little country to the stage Friday night. Katie Vollmer, a student at Charlotte High School, performed the song Climb. Michaela Sweeney was one of more than 40 who auditioned Friday evening for the 2014 Charlotte Idol at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County in Port Charlotte. If you enjoy watching American Idol, you will not want to miss the Charlotte Idol competition on Aug. 22. The nale will feature local competitors singing their hearts out at the Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center for a night to remember. Although prominent area judges will choose ve competitors from a group of 20 contestants who auditioned on Aug. 8 at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, audience members will take part by encouraging those competing for three cash prizes. The top three contestants will be awarded $1,000, $500, and $250. However, the purpose of the competition is not only to shine light on local talent, but also to help those in need. Charlotte County school and community relations ocer and emcee for the nals night, Mike Riley, loves to joke around but hes dead serious about one thing, helping the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition. Over 450 homeless children attend Charlotte County Public Schools, he said. This is why we are here, helping to raise money and awareness for those who are needy and deserving. We want them to have the opportunity to get back on their feet and lead good, healthy, productive lives. As the band leader of The BoogieMen, Riley has listened to so many musical groups, and was surprised at how many amazing singers turned up last year for the Idol competition. It is a kalei doscope of music as each and every singer has a unique style and sound. Riley, along with last years Idol winner Marcella Brown will entertain the audi ence in a pre-concert show featuring a rae auction, which includes a number of gift baskets, a BBQ grill donated by Home Depot, a turkey fryer donated by Lowes, and a shing cooler donated by Downtown Bait and Tackle. Our premier sponsor for this event is Sams Club, said Tina Figliuolo, the director of community relations and development for the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition that is coordinating the nalist competition. Charlotte Honda VW is our next level sponsor, and our media sponsor is the Charlotte Sun. Innity DJ Daron Woods will be providing the sound to accompany singers. At the end of the evening, Marcella Brown, now 17, will sing the closing number, Time to Say Goodbye. In addition to vocal talents, contestants will be judged on stage presence, outts, audience interaction, and choreography if applicable. Judge Kathleen Candales, the artistic director and founder of Higher Ground Performing Arts Studio and Performing Company located in Port Charlotte, is an accomplished dancer, actress, choreographer, and vocalist who has appeared in lms and music videos with Gloria Estefan and N Sync. Judge Big Al Holland is an internationally known keyboard player and vocalist who toured with The Platters for many years. As a solo entertainer, he often performs for private and community events throughout Southwest Florida. Judge Chris Porter, the executive editor of the Sun newspapers, is a strong supporter of local musical organizations and the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition. VIP tickets for nals night are $70 and include a Florida-style buet dinner, special seating, and pre-show entertainment. For VIP ticket holders, the event begins at 5 p.m. General admission tickets are $20. Doors open for general admission at 6 p.m. with a cash bar and snacks available for purchase in the lobby. All proceeds will benet the Charlotte County Homeless Coalitions Shelter Youth Tutoring Program. The Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center is located at 75 Taylor St. in Punta Gorda.

August 13 19, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 11 DINING OUTIts been six months since Cluck U Chicken in North Port has opened and owner Tony Tartaglia is just as invested in his employees, restaurant, and community as he was when he started it all. Tartaglia, whose son and daughter graduated from North Port High School, continues to believe in blue and silver. I live here and the people only stay involved when their kids go there. People should stay involved to ensure other students experiences would be as enjoyable as their own childrens, he said. Tartaglia believes that North Port High is a safe learning environment and wants the students workplace to provide the same environment. Employees are always showing their school pride by wearing a North Port jersey as part of their uniform. When Bobcat Wings or Bobcat Bites are ordered, Cluck U will be donating 30 percent of the prot to North Port High Schools athletic department. Tartaglia is dedicated to supporting all schools in general, not just NPHS. Customers who save their game ticket, from any school, get a discount. It is an honor, privilege and pleasure to work with these kids. I could not do this without their loyalty and suggestions. Weve changed our frying and waiting techniques because of their suggestions, he said. Cluck U Chickens starting salary is still $8.93, a dollar above minimum wage. He pays the kids more but expects a lot more out of them. However, school stills come rst. Student employees must main tain a 2.0 grade point average and Tartaglia wants to see their report cards quarterly. He even oers a bonus and pays students for the shift they had to take o to work on a project if they get a 75 percent or higher on the project. A Cluck U Chicken scholarship is in place. At the end of the school year, one senior employee will receive $1,000 in scholarship money. This senior is picked based on all characteristics, not just an academic merit. This past year, the scholarship was split evenly between Katelyn Wilder and Kyle Lambert, they both earned $500 each. What makes Cluck U Chicken dierent is the experience. It isnt a fast food restaurant but its fresh, fast and casual dining. Cluck U Chickens food is always fresh, never frozen. The menu has something to oer everyone with the best portion and prices said Tartaglia. Their menu consists of wings, burgers, wraps, sandwiches, chicken pieces, salads and more. Theres a kids menu for spring chickens, which is free Mondays and Fridays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Also free are drafts with the purchase of a bottomless pint for $7.99 for adults. Core menu items never change, but anticipate exclusive items on the menu such as fried mac and cheese, fried burgers and even fried corn on the cob. Keyword: fried. Food is fried in rice bran oil which Tartaglia claims is a healthier alternative. You havent had a burger until youve had one of our burgers, he said. Cluck U Chicken burgers are made from ground rib eye. The restaurant is located at 11163 N. Toledo Blade Blvd., North Port. Theyre open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight.

12 Lets Go! E/N/C/V August 13 19, 2014 DINING OUTSecond generation owner and manager Martha Clement is happy to share her simple formula with anyone wanting to know her secrets for running a successful restaurant business like Slims Bar-B-Q & Grill in Arcadia. One: You need a quality product. Two: Your restaurant can never be too c lean. Three: You must always use common sense and common courtesy. Marthas recipes were developed over 50 years ago, and everything is prepared the old-fashioned way. Meaty pork spareribs, chicken, pork and beef are slow cooked for hours in a smoker using Blackjack Oak. During the cooking process theyre basted with a special barbecue sauce. Desserts such as Nans Pecan Torte and Aunt Flos Key Lime pies are lovingly baked every day. Slims Bar-B-Q & Grill was named for my father who opened the restaurant in 1957, said Clement. As a teen growing up I wasnt always thrilled about working in our family business, but now I really love what I do. At 11 a.m., every day except for Monday, hungry customers come streaming in the moment we open our doors. Some are returning customers who dont mind driving for more than two hours to enjoy authentic barbecue dishes. We dont feel the need to offer daily specials because our menu items are fairly priced, and customers already know that theyre getting a good value. All four of Slims Bar-B-Q & Grill menus may be viewed online at Restaurants/SW/Slims.htm. Combo plates that include barbecued chicken, ribs, and a choice of sliced pork, beef or turkey are most popular, of course, but in addition to barbecued meats, Slims offers lite meals for smaller appetites. Salads include Slims chef or Caesar salad; tropical fruit salad crisp greens topped with fresh seasonal fruit, smoked pecans, and shredded Parmesan cheese served with mango vinaigrette; and gorgonzola salad greens topped with tomato, cucumber, smoked pecans, and gorgonzola cheese served with raspberry walnut vinaigrette. Grilled chicken breast or grilled salmon or mahi may be added to any salad choice. For lunch, diners may choose from a variety of sandwich and burger baskets. About two-thirds of our customers dine in, the rest order ahead for takeout, said Clement. July turned out to be our busiest month with 400 take-out orders needing to be filled in one day alone. A number of shows, church, and local business activities take place during the summer, and that keeps us busy but happy. Although Slims Bar-B-Q is located in quaint south central Florida in the town of Arcadia, its no longer one of Southwest Floridas best kept secrets. Their famous Bar-B-Q sauce can be ordered in advance and shipped anywhere. Arcadia is located one hour east of Sarasota and Bradenton and one hour north of Fort Myers. Rodeos and competitions are popular. The town hosts the De Soto County Fair in January and a Watermelon Festival in May. The downtown historic district, built in the 1800s, has 20 antique stores and specialty shops. For more information, call Slims at 863-494-2332. Theyre open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. They close on Mondays. Slims is located at 319 S.

August 13 19, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 13 SIDE DISHOver time, it occurs to you that your neighborhood seems like Restaurateur Row. You smell aromatic Thai spices wafting over the back fence, notice an eaterys logo on a car parked up the street, are suave ly greeted at the entrance to his familys restaurant by a local kid youd seen shooting hoops in his driveway that morning. That so many neighbor families own restau rants is a measure of the health of indepen dents in this town full of big-box chains. Many of these families were part of a community that came together and proved itself after Hurricane Charley. One of them will have been running Josephs Deli & Catering for 15 years this September. In 1999, the eaterys Tamiami Trail address had a New Yorkstyle deli for sale, half the size of the current place, with a mural of New York City spanning one wall. Willie Hishmeh, who had been operating a sub shop and a carpet business in town, sold both enterprises to plow the prots into a new deli in a prime location. And business was greatuntil, ve years later, Hurricane Charley visited their block without enough advance notice. Its tough to get slammed at early-bird dinner rush by this guy whos supposed to be passing through Tampa instead. Willies son Jamal, now the owner-man ager, was working in Orlando at the time. He watched in horror as weather reports began showing that his dads deli was basically wear ing a bulls-eye. And Charley had good aim. Jamal rushed to Port Charlotte. He found the deli roof caved in; furniture and equipment dumped by the storm into the back of the unit; the New York City mural eectively erased; and two blocks of businesses on that side of the Trail attened like a war zone except for Dairy Queen, whose 1950s-era A-frame somehow stood unscathed amid the rubble. For a month Jamal took leave from work to help his mom and dad, aunts and uncles, rebuild not only a business but also their home in the neighborhood. During the six months before they were back in business, customers and neighbors kept stopping by to check on them. A plaque at Josephs still commemorates Surviving for Our Patrons. Five years ago, Jamal began working full time at the deli. Now, although most of Josephs clientele originally came from somewhere else and might not have known Charley personally, theyve all found a hometown hangout in this place that survived. They say they get a bigger breakfast, for less, here than at home, says Jamal. But thats only part of the story. Why sit home eating breakfast by yourselves when you can come in and feel the love? The bing-bong of the door opening and the busy clinking of cutlery and plates lls the dining room every mealtime. Jamal and the count er team, including his cousin Christina and high school friends Michele and Sarah, greet regulars by name, with a smile, whenever they come in the doorwhich, no surprise, is pretty much every day. The chorus of bingbongs alternates with rst-name greetings all day long. Morning, Tom. Morning, Mary. How ya doing? Hey neighbor! Hows it going? Tom reports, I always have breakfast here. I like the omelet. Jamal does a really good job. But, Jamal adds in an aside, Mom does it a lot better than me. Tom and Mary dont miss a day here. Jamals mom, Mary, takes a break, still in her hair net from working the line. Her liquid brown eyes glisten a bit as she condes, Some of the older ones, we worry when we dont see them for a couple days. Theyll call to tell us if they arent going to be here. One customer even sent someone from the hospital to tell us where he was. Come another perfect storm, theres no doubt that, here, family will keep on looking out for fam ily, and neighbor for neighbor. Josephs Deli and Catering is at 3231 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte.

14 Lets Go! E/N/C/V August 13 19, 2014 LIVE MUSIC Upbeat focuses on pop and rock music of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. By Tom Lovasko, Sun Correspondent Top of Billboard Chart 1962 Breaking Up Is Hard To Do by Neil Sedaka 1972 Alone Again (Naturally) by Gilbert OSullivan 1982 Eye Of The Tiger by Survivor45 Years Ago Woodstock Revisited It was ocially called the Woodstock Music & Art Fair and was promoted as An Aquarian Exposition 3 days of Peace and Music. Held from August 15-18, 1969, its best known as the Woodstock Festival that took place on Max Yasgurs farm in Bethel, New York. About 400,000 attended and a three-day ticket cost $18. Thirty-two acts, including many big names, performed. Among them: The Who, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Sly & the Family Stone, Joan Baez, Santana, the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, Canned Heat, John Sebastian, Jeerson Airplane, The Band, Ravi Shankar, Arlo Guthrie, Country Joe & the Fish, Ten Years After, Johnny Winter and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. The rst artist to play was Richie Havens; Jimi Hendrix was the nal act. The festival has been chronicled with an Oscar winning documentary movie and two soundtrack albums along with Joni Mitchells song Woodstock, popularized by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Woodstock is recognized as one of the greatest events in rock history.Last week, the trivia question asked: Name the band whose 1968 Cheap Thrills album, in the San Francisco psychedelic era, introduced singer Janis Joplin, and the blues-rock classics Piece of My Heart and Summertime cover. Answer: Big Brother & the Holding Company. The rst reader to get it right was Paul Wainman of Punta Gorda.THIS WEEKS QUESTION: Beginning with the words you ll up my senses, what is the name of the 1974 John Denver hit song that he wrote and named for his college sweetheart? Email your answer to no later than noon this Friday. The answer and winner (randomly selected) appears next week. Please include your name and city. READERS ROCK! It may have taken a while, but a year ago, the band that calls itself Moccasin Wallow nally put its nal piece in place. Guitarist Jimmy Hoy and bassist Jeremy Sutter had been playing around the Suncoast for about ve years. Then last year, drummer Billy Bedwell came aboard and the puzzle was complete. Hoy said that when Bedwell joined the band, the much-loved-by-the-locals group gained another true professional. "Billy had started playing the drums when he was six, and has been with several bands in the area," he said. "Jeremy had rst started out on the guitar and is just multitalented, and I started playing at six or seven years old with drums and evolved into several dierent instruments after that." Moccasin Wallow is based in North Port and plays at several local venues on a regular basis, like Dean's South of the Border in Punta Gorda, Calico Jack's in Englewood and Open Road Bar & Grill in Arcadia. Hoy said that with the type of music they play at those spots, they are trying to appeal to a wide range of people. But Hoy is also a songwriter, which he has been doing for the past 32 years. He said that during a typical Moccasin Wallow performance, they may even include about 10 of their own songs in the set list. "When we play shows, we favor classic and southern rock, but our original stu goes from classic country to swing funk," he said. "We're working to add more originals into our shows, and this week, we will be going into the studio to record an EP." He said a couple of the new songs are strictly country, while the others are "swing funk" and rock. The idea, he added, is that the band doesn't want to limit itself to a certain genre of music. Having that kind of musical variety in a performance is why venues continue to book Moccasin Wallow for shows, and why the band is also in high demand for various fundraisers in the area. They have performed in the past at the Patriot Poker Run, which benets disabled veterans, F.A.M.E., which raises money to help support music programs in schools, and other fundraisers that benet causes that are important to them. Coming up on Aug. 23, the band will be performing at the Open Road in Arcadia at a benet to help buy sporting goods for soldiers to use. No matter what the occasion or venue, it's understood that at a Moccasin Wallow show, you're going to have a good time. That's because in this band, not only do the members love the audience, they genuinely like each other. "There's no attitudes from anybody," Hoy said. "Everybody is in it (the band) to have fun. One of the biggest compliments we get is that when audiences come to see us, they can tell we're having a good time, too."

August 13 19, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 15 ROAD TRIPUnless you have a real dune buggy, driving on most of Floridas miles of sandy beaches is not a good idea. Not so at Daytona, where you can put the top down on your convertible and drive along the shore on the hard-packed sand of The Worlds Most Famous Beach. I have done it in my Tracker and even years earlier in an old Dodge station wagon. There are several access points along Highway A1A in Daytona. Make sure the tide is out and then enjoy the ride but be mindful that you are sharing the beach with surfers, joggers and sun worshipers. Should you arrive in town without your surfboard, not to worry. Daytona has more surf shops per mile than anyplace I have been to, including Malibu, Calif. Ron Jons may be the biggest and certainly has some incredible boards on display and for sale. Daytona is a great mural town too. Murals decorate building but also some of the bridge supports leading to the beach. Get up close to those while cruising aboard the Manatee out of Ponce Inlet, which is just south of town. (The 175-foot high Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, circa 1887, and Museum is another attraction worth a visit For details on the 2-hour cruises, including the summer sunset cruise at 7 p.m., call 800-881-2628. The cruise ship leaves from the Inlet Harbor Restaurant & Marina, 133 Inlet Harbor Road at Ponce Inlet, daily at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Also to be found at Daytona Beach is the boardwalk amusement area, pier, water park, arcade and the old band shell dating to 1937. Performing this Friday from 7 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. is Michael Leone in Elvis Live!, followed by Brad Yates and Momentum from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, the beach in front of the band shell will be rocking to the Classic Rock Revival Show, Santana Meets the Doobie Brothers. That show runs from 7:15 p.m. to 9:45 p.m.. Those shows will get you o the main street for the evening too. Most nights, A1A hums with motorcycles just as the speedway hums with race cars for its many special events throughout the year. Florida is a skinny state which means that even Daytona can be a day trip from the west coast but with all the attractions there plus summer rates at that areas many hotels, consider spending the night and checking out the famous Daytona Speedway and Daytona USA, the ocial NASCAR attraction. NASCAR was born at Daytona. The winner of the latest Daytona 500, race dust, confetti and all, will be on display. Take the 16-second Pit Stop Challenge, visit the IMAX Theater and/or test your skill at Acceleration Alley, a video simulation of the Daytona 500. ($400 million is being spent from now through 2016 to renovate the fan experience.) Any night but Sunday, if you are dying for another tour, check out Daytona ghosts and ghouls on one of the Haunts of Daytona Tours. Call 386-253-6034. From the west coast take Interstate 75 north to Exit 261 (I-4). Travel east on I-4 to Exit 87 (SR 92 International Speedway Boulevard), which leads right into the heart of Daytona and Daytona Beach.Driving Daytona BeachBy KIM COOLFEATURES EDITOR PHOTO PROVIDED BY DAYTONA BEACH CVBYoung children build a sandcastle along famed Daytona Beach, In the background is the Hilton Daytona Beach Resort/Ocean Walk Village, overlooking the famed beach. 485714 Call For A Free Brochure 941-488-9393 All Around Tours C ASINO T RIPS S IGHTSEEING T OURS D INING & E NTERTAINMENT O UTINGS HARD ROCK $ 20 Per Person Lic# ST313558 Included...Immokalee, Isle of Capri, Coconut Creek, Gulfstream or Hollywood and one night accommodations with continental breakfast at La Quinta, free play and food vouchers Thursday and Sunday Oct 29-31 St Augustine $399 ppdo Nov 26-28 Key West $469 ppdo Dec 3-7 Nashville at Christmastime $959 ppdo Dec 23-27 Smokey Mountain Christmas $759 ppdo Jan 19-21 St Augustine $399ppdo Jan 26-29 Extended Key West $649 ppdo Tuesday and Saturday 8/23 Ti tani c Experience $79 8/26 Gat orama $59 8/28 Chalet Suzanne Tea $59 9/18 JC Crui se $59 9/22 Ikea $25 9/30 Capone s $64 10/02 Those Were the Days $75 10/11 Autumn Art Festi val $33 Multiple Bus Casino Pick Ups In : Pt.

The Sun Classified Page 14E/N/C/Vads.yoursun.netW ednesday, August 13, 2014 ZITSByJerryScott&JimBorgman GARFIELDByJimDavis FRESHLYSQUEEZEDByEdStein DILBERTByScottAdams REXM O R G ANByWoodyW i lsonandTerryBeatty MARYWORTHByKarenMoyandJoeGiellaDEAR DR. ROACH: My son is 27 years old, and he w as diagnosed with low testosterone at the age of 21, due to a tumor on the pituitary gland, seen on an MRI. He took bromocriptine and testosterone for a while, and they helped to get the testosterone level up and the prolactin level down. However, his insurance changed, and his prescriptions are no longer covered. He cannot afford them otherwise. He was off the medicine for about eight months, and when his doctor did blood work to test the testosterone and prolactin, his testosterone was 34 and prolactin was 286. Now he has been off his medicine for ve months, and Im w ondering if, without the medicine, there is damage being done to his body every day. He rarely has facial hair; even with the medicine, he shaves only maybe four or ve times a y ear. He is overweight. This problem started in high school, but his weight was not as much of a problem in high school. Until better health coverage comes along and the prescriptions are covered, how bad is this for his body and future health? G.G. ANSWER: The pituitary gland contains many different kinds of cells, including cells that make different kinds of hormones. These hormones r egulate many body processes. Prolactin normally is secreted to stimulate breast milk production in pregnant women at the time of birth and while a w oman breastfeeds her baby. High levels of prolactin in men or nonpregnant w omen suggest that a tumor in the pituitary is secreting prolactin, and the MRI nding makes this very likely. In general, the higher the prolactin count, the larger the tumor. Pr olactin decreases the secretion of the hormones that stimulate testosterone in men, causing the kinds of symptoms your son is experiencing. Br omocriptine not only r educes prolactin levels, but it also shrinks the tumors and reduces their secretion of prolactin. You can think of it as chemotherapy for the tumor. F or some people those whose prolactin levels have returned to normal and whose pituitary tumor has shrunk to the point where it cant be detected by MRI and has stayed stable for two years the medication can be gradually withdrawn, as long as the prolactin level doesnt increase as the drug dose is decreasing. In y our sons case, the tumor clearly is secreting prolactin and suppressing testosterone. So, he needs the medicine. Low testosterone causes muscle loss, bone weakness, and a decrease in red bl ood cells. It also can promote an increase in body fat. More importantly, the glandular tumor can grow, causing damage to the optic nerve, which sits directly below the pituitary. F or these reasons, your son needs treatment. One approach is to see if he qualies for an assistance program by Novartis (the maker of bromocriptine). There is another medication, cabergoline, which is also effective but even more expensive. Pa ra doxically, insurance companies sometimes approve the more-expensive drug. Finally, surgery is an option, but often does not get all of the tumor, even in the best hands. DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 17-year-old cross-country and track runner. I had a stress fracture of my shin. I have not been running and have been on crutches for one month. Are there foods I should eat? Exercises to do? The doctor only said not to walk on it. What else can be done to heal the stress fracture? J.G. ANSWER: Stress fractures are common, especially in younger athletes, especially runners. Most often, they get better just by avoiding exercises that cause pain. A diet with adequate calcium and vitamin D, or supplements, may speed healing. Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

Every entree I buy says to cook in a 1,100-watt microwave. A few years ago, I bought a new microwave, so I asked for a 1,100-watt one. No one had one they were all 1,000-watt. Why do manufacturers insist on their products using 1,100-watt microwaves for cooking when all you can buy is 1,000-watt? Everything I cook in the microwave I add 30 seconds to, and it works just ne. Any hints? Shirley S. in M ichigan There are many more 1,100-watt microwaves available today in all price ranges, from low to high! It might be time to buy a new one, since the average life span is about 10 years, depending on use. If yours is still working ne, its OK to use. Food cooks faster the higher the wattage, and slower the lower the wattage. Adding a few extra seconds of cooking time (on a low-wattage model) makes up the difference. Its better to undercook than overcook, as you can always Z AP it a few more seconds. HeloiseNo frozenDear Heloise: Y es and no to those who want to cook pies on a pizza stone (Heloise here: A previous hint from a reader stated that she bakes many different items on a pizza stone, including pies). Make sure the pie isnt froze n, as my pizza stone cracked during baking. Car ol M. in IndianaHandling watermelonDear Heloise: I frequently buy watermelons in the summer. They are hard to handle, and quite often my clothes are soiled from contact. My very si mple hint: I put the watermelon in one of the plastic bags the market uses to bag my groceries. Not only is the watermelon easier to carry (of course I support the melon from the bottom), but I no longer worry that my clothes will be dirty. I even leave the bag on the melon until I am ready to remove it from my refrigerator. Using a plastic bag makes handling watermelon so much easier and cleaner.

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: I am very concerned about my 33-year-old daughters safety. A man in his mid60s, someone she met at a previous job, has become obsessed with her. He has declared his love for her, divorced his wife and slathered my struggling, single daughter with gifts ov er the last three years. S he has refused his advances on nearly a daily basis, and he is now tracking her every move. If she leaves her house for even 30 minutes, he knows and accuses her of going to have sex with someone. If she says shes coming to my house, he drives by to verify it. If it takes her longer than he thinks it should, he accuses her of having sex with someone. S he swears that she has never had sex with him. It has really intensied lately. Im frantic about her safety. What should I do? SCARED MOM IN FLORIDA DEAR SCARED MOM: Y our daughters admirer is showing all the signs of being a stalker. Why is she carrying on any conversations with him and telling him where shes going? If she accepted gifts he slathered on her, it may be why he feels she encouraged him. They should be returned. Y ou and your daughter should go to the police and report what he has been doing. It may be necessary for her to take out a r estraining order because this person appears to be unbalanced and may be dangerous. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I recently decided to get married. We plan to go to the courthouse next month and have a justice of the peace perform the ceremony. S ince it will be nothing fancy, we have decided to invite just a few family members his mom, grandma and brother, along with my mom and dad. What we need advice about is how to tell his mom. She feels that marriage is just a piece of paper and you shouldnt need it to prove how committed you are. Because of her views, he wants to sur prise her the day of the wedding when we all arrive at the courthouse. I feel its a bad idea, and she should have some time to get used to the thought of us being married. Any advice you can offer on when to tell her, and how to handle what shes going to say? FUTURE DAUGHTER-IN-LAW DEAR FUTURE D.I.L.: I agree that your boyfriends mother should be told beforehand, and the good news should be delivered by both of you. When she delivers the predictable marriage is just a piece of paper comment, you s hould respond that the piece of paper is an important one to you, and your boyfriend should tell her hes doing this because he loves you and, in the event that anything should happen to him, he wants to provide for you. If she gives you an argument, remember that youre asking for her blessing not her permission. DEAR ABBY: Do you think people can change? JILL IN CHESTER, PA. DEAR JILL: I assume you me an change for the better. The answer is yes, of course people can change. With motivation, determination and perseverance, people can accomplish almost anything they set their minds to.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 1 Everyone has a story about Hurricane Char ley that surprisingly mighty storm that devastated our community 10 years ago today. Jennifer Carley, of Englewood East, and her husband had to work. Each took a child to his/her health-related job. Since they lived in West County, they sustained minor damage. But they received a lifelong gift as a result of Hurricane Charley. Nine months later, we welcomed our third daugh ter, Charlotte, Jennifer shared. She is a part of the baby boom experienced after the hurricane. Sophie, a petite bichon fris, survived Charley in a closet with her parents Mike and Victoria Kessel in their manufactured home in Blue Heron Pines. They all held onto one another. Sophie is a senior citizen today, Victoria stated. Her happy life continues to be a repetition of hugs, pats and doggy treats. She will never realize what a wonderful soul she has and the joy she gives to others, as well as the comfort she bestows on me. The Yergers had to have their Port Charlotte home rebuilt. But they never lost faith. Our son Joseph painted the message on the roof, Andrea Yerger wrote. His dad is a minister and he teaches his congregations to respond when he says, God is Good, they say, All the time. Kerri Kibbe with her daughter, then 22 months old, moved into her par ents Pirate Harbor home, where they all rode out Charley. My daughter, who managed to sleep in my arms through it all, exclaimed, What a mess! Kerri recalled. We were in the process of potty training, and her potty was sucked out of the living room and thrown two lots away. ... My father (always the joker) had a toilet bowl ice bucket, and it was always the hit of the party. A few days after the storm, we heard her exclaim with pure delight, I go potty! I go potty! We were thrilled until we discovered that she had used Dads ice bucket! It was then retired as the standing joke! These, of course, are just a few of the thousands of stories from Hurricane Charley. Inside this special section, youll read more about the storm and how weve recovered stron ger and better. Youll read about familiar faces: Gov. Jeb Bush and Charlotte County Emergency Management Director Wayne Sallade. Youll read about familiar voices: Mike Moody and Bob Alexander. Youll read about businesses that found success after the storm. Youll read about how it took determination and a persevering spirit to rebuild schools, fire stations, homes, stores, etc. And, hopefully, youll be proud of your community and how the strength and character of your neighbors allowed us to emerge as one of the best places to live in America.

Page 2 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 PUNTA GORDA In 1988, local business owners, civic associations and residents wanted to celebrate the city of Punta Gorda entering its second century. The community raised the money to install the 1880s-era town clock downtown on West Marion Avenue. A year later marked the creation of the Punta Gorda Community Redevelopment Agency and the start of the citys revitalization. The timing was right. Hurricane Charley, however, put a temporary stop to all that. Sometime after 3 p.m. Aug. 13, 2004, Hurricane Charley turned into Charlotte Harbor. By 4 p.m., Charleys winds wreaked havoc throughout Punta Gorda. Downed power lines stopped the downtown clock. And according to Sun reports, two of the four faces of the clock froze during Charleys rampage one at about 4 p.m., and the other at 4:27 p.m. After the hurricane, Willard Beck, the city manager at the time, ended a debate whether the clock faces should remain stopped as a historical reminder of Charleys sweep through the city. In October 2004, Beck had a Public Works crew restart the frozen faces of the clock. That time was just a blur, recalled Art Brewster, a city Public Works supervisor of facilities management, which includes overseeing the downtown clocks operation. It was a wild time, he said. Brewster, like the vast majority of city employees, worked 14and 15-hour days to get the city back onto its feet. And like other employ ees, Brewsters home in Deep Creek sustained significant damage from the hurricane. But he said hed go home in the dark, take a shower, grab two, three hours of sleep, and then head back to Punta Gorda in the morning. Were city employees, Brewster said. Its our city. We needed to get the city up and running. Punta Gorda is a special place. While the city clock was restarted, it wasnt keeping time well after the hurricane. The city replaced the inner workings of the clock in 2007 to ensure better time.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comTime different before and after CharleyBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER SUN FILE PHOTOThe National Guard members stand near the Punta Gorda clock, which stopped after Hurricane Charley.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 3 Theres no way to separate Hurricane Charley and Wayne Sallade. Their stories are as intertwined as the metal roofs that braided palm trees in Charleys powerful winds. I looked at the storm as my foe, Sallade, now 60, said. Seventeen years preparing. It was vindication, but certainly reluctant vindication. I certainly didnt relish the experience. We cant say he didnt warn us: May 18, 1998: Englewood residents need to be extra vigilant in planning for hurricane preparedness. Residents in the Cape Haze peninsula will be the rst to evacuate in the event of a hurricane. May 30, 2001: In 2000, we watched Tropical Storm Gordon pass just to our west, leaving us with up to 10 inches of rain and torna does as close as Lee County. How long will these storms continue to miss our area? May 15, 2004: New Orleans is the only place in North America thats more susceptible to a storm surge than Charlotte County. Let that statement and date sink in for a minute. Early August 2004Candidates were enter ing the nal few weeks of campaigning before the primary election in the summer of 2004.

Page 4 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Florida pre-Friday the 13th. The tropics red up just as we expected, Sallade said on Aug. 3, 2004. Sallade continued to wake up residents about two possible systems. They both bear watching, but my take is that TD3, soon to be Charley, is the one to pay closest attention to, he said on Aug. 9, 2004. It has the greatest potential (to be a problem here). Even the day before, while some focused attention on a Tampa landfall, Sallade continued to be concerned. If they shift it back to us well have a catastrophic situation, he said Aug. 12, 2004. Charley shifted, just as Sallade feared, delivering that catastrophic situation. We were well in the cone, Sallade said earlier this year in an interview for the 10year anniversary. We were in a warning.Charley, the stormThe storm hit in the afternoon, leaving only a few hours of daylight for ofcials to assess the damage. Debris covered roads. Houses stood without roofs. Some houses no longer stood. Cars lost windows, as did buildings. Grass and leaves covered nearly every surface. Trees, so many trees, were felled. Soon, ofcials learned of human casualties. We had two bodies being attended to off Florida Street, Sallade said. The Charlotte County medical examiner was out of the country. State ofcials asked Sallade what he needed, and he requested Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Teams. Each unit could handle 60 deceased persons. I said, you better send me two, he said. I want one in Punta Gorda, and one in Port Charlotte. That started an urban legend of body snatchers in Charlotte County. So the assumption was made there had to be more (bodies), he said. We didnt know what we might have come morning. Sallades greatest achievement: That only four people died in a Category 4 hurricane. Its also his greatest regret: That four people died.The aftermathSallades sleep in those early days after Charley took place in short upright spurts, in a worn, plaid chair that looks like it once could have belonged to Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable. Crisis management, after all, isnt a 9 to 5 job. On Aug. 24, Sarasota Countys then-Emergency Management director, Greg Feagans, approached Sallade and said: Youre outta here. You are going to Sarasota to University Parkway. Sarasota has rented a suite for you, and thats where you are going to stay. We dont want to see you until Wednesday at the earliest. Sallade drove north on Interstate 75, leaving Charlotte County for the rst time. I slept probably 20 to 22 hours, Sallade recalled. I will always be grateful for that. Among the tasks facing local leaders at the time: Keeping the peace, restoring utilities, removing debris, maintaining healthy residents, managing the thousands of out-of-town rst responders and volunteers, assessing damage, clearing roads, re-establishing new facilities, working with FEMA, talking to the media so residents could hear/read whats FROM PAGE 3 SUN FILE PHOTOCharlotte County Emergency Management Director Wayne Sallade briefs President George W.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 5 going on, and sometimes, chasing animals such as a black bear wandering around Punta Gorda Isles. Then, there was the task of building a new village in one day. Sallade and others gathered in a room, and in one day, they had to plan FEMA Village (as it became known), where hundreds of white mobile homes became temporary housing for displaced local residents near the Charlotte County Jail in Punta Gorda. In addition to FEMA Village, schools and re stations, Charlotte County needed to rebuild its Emergency Management Center. Ofcials broke ground in June 2006 on a 31,000-squarefoot, $11 million Public Safety Building that now houses Fire/EMS, Animal Control, 211 and Emergency Management on Airport Road, near the Charlotte County Jail. It opened about a year later with exterior windows and doors able to withstand 200 mph winds. This is the house that Charley built, Sallade said.Sallade, the manTheres a striking difference between the Sallade of 10 years ago and now. Then: A man in shape, looking younger than his age, able to continue running meetings, addressing the media and brieng elected ofcials despite the partner ing duo of heat and fatigue. Now: A man who has aged a bit more than most in a decade. He has, however, weathered a few personal and professional storms since August 2004. I got away from my routine, Sallade admits. I should have made time after Charley because my personal life and work life changed so much. Charley hit while Sallade was going through a divorce. He reconnected with his high school sweetheart, Vicki, and the two since have married.

Page 6 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Sallade is one of those what-you-see-is-what-youget kind of guys. Theres no mystery. Theres no secret political or personal agenda. And theres usually no lter working to stop possibly regrettable words from owing out of his mouth. That lack of a lter led to a ve-day suspension in 2012 after Sallade used inammatory statements toward a Punta Gorda ofcial. The city did not participate in Sallades color-coded collar program, which designates evacuation zones by placing the colored bands on street signs throughout the county. My enthusiasm and continued excitement over our evacuation collar program and its success, has now cost me dearly, Sallade wrote on his Facebook page at the time. A spotless 32-year record in Charlotte County government is no more and I deeply regret that. I hope to take my medicine and move forward, as we work together to keep our community safe. Love him or hate him, thats Sallade: A passionate advocate for public safety. Wayne goes the extra mile, like he did during Hurricane Charley, Then-Charlotte County commissioner Bob Starr said in 2012. He worked hard, and helped us make the transition from disaster to recovery. Sallades ofce looks like that of a retired athletes: memories of glory days lining the walls. For Sallade, that means a lot of Hurricane Charley-related honors, plaques and photographs. People still stop me and say, Thank you. You saved my life. Ten years later, Sallade doesnt tire talking about Hurricane Charley. He was the greatest life lesson of my career, and he was such a teacher for all of us, Sallade said. He was a vindicator, but he was also a teacher.Email: cfeinberg@sun-herald.comFROM PAGE 5 Burton MacLeod, 76, died in his Punta Gorda home. A piece of glass sliced into his leg, causing him to bleed to death during the storm. MacLeod was the former owner of The Best Value Inn, the Cape Cod Inn and The Duck Inn Pub, in Hyannis, Mass. He also owned the Wind Mill Inn in Sandwich, Mass., and the Super Eight Motel in West Yarmouth, Mass. He had retired to Florida three years before Charley. He was survived by a sister and six nephews. Gordon and Joanne Hawkins, 83 and 82, died trying to weather the storm from their double-wide trailer in the Crystal Lake subdivision in Punta Gorda, where they lived for 30 years. The high winds launched the trailer, and the couple was found dead beneath the rubble. The Hawkinses would have celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary that following December. They were survived by four children, and were preceded in death by one. Windsor C. Bates, 51, of Waterway Circle in Port Charlotte and Cranson, R.I., died after being struck by debris during the storm. He was a sport fishing charter boat captain for more than 20 years, and had attended the University of Rhode Island School of Oceanography. He was a diving instructor and held a pilots license, owning his own plane for many years. He was survived by a son. Larry Turner, 53, tried to ride out the storm in a storage container that had been transformed into a toolshed in DeSoto County. The container flipped several times in Charleys 145 mph winds, and he died from his injuries. He was survived by his wife Kathy, who also sustained injuries during the storm. Karen Ryan, 56, of Nokomis was driving south on Interstate 75 in Venice when she lost control in the rough weather. Her car skidded off the shoulder and struck a tree.Remembering those who died locally PHOTO PROVIDEDCharlotte County Emergency Management Director WayneSallade discusses the contents of a special Disaster Planning Guide with important information for county residents earlier this year. 50468943 1-800-590-7449 Open Mon-Thurs 9-5PM Fri & Sat 9-6PM Sun 12-5PM Seasonal MAN WITH A VAN No Delivery/Moving Job Too Small Larger Trucks Available Best Prices In Town Let Me Take The Hassle Out Of Your Move Or Delivery.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 7 When Category 2 Hurricane Charley moved up the Gulf of Mexico, morphed into a Category 4, and then jogged east toward Charlotte Harbor, disbelief, the rst of a three-step process, set in for local residents. How could it be that a hurricane headed for Tampa was suddenly taking dead aim at Punta Gorda and Charlotte County? That disbelief quickly turned into step two despair as residents emerged from their closets, where for an hour and a half nothing was heard but the freight-train roar of the 145-160 mph winds and the sound of wind-blown debris assaulting their homes. Pool screens, roofs, landscaping, power poles, trafc signals, businesses, houses and buildings were wiped out in the span of 90 minutes. For a long time after the storm, when residents encountered friends and acquaintances, the standard greeting was not How ya doin or How ya been? It was How did you make out? In the end, Charlotte County made out quite well, thanks to a spirited and united community quickly moving to step three determination to rebuild.

Page 8 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 rebuilt or replaced, in many cases better than before. Nevertheless, let the bells toll for what is gone forever and still missed today.Charleys hitsDowntown Punta Gorda took the heaviest hit, and lost many old buildings. They werent architectural masterpieces, but old buildings are what distinguished the city. For the newcomers, just about every spot thats now grass, once contained structures dating to the early 1900s. One especially missed is the Punta Gorda Herald building at the corner of Herald Court and Taylor Street. Built circa 1913 to house the paper of record in Charlotte County at the time, the Herald building was still the rental home of the current weekly Sun insert when Charley ravaged it. It was one of the oldest commercial buildings in the county. Like most other missing downtown buildings, it was done in by the FEMA 50 percent rule, which requires that disaster damages not exceed 50 percent of the cost of restoring the building to its previous condition. Before it was demolished, its gray bricks entered the collections of many a local history buff, as did some of the old lead type found in the soil below. Downtown Punta Gorda was a much bigger shopping destination before Charley than it is today. Two nondescript strip malls, now empty spaces, on East Marion Avenue both disappeared, but the worst commercial loss was the old Punta Gorda Mall. Its now the big empty space in the center of downtown, used for festivals and parking for the bars and restaurants that now surround it. Before the storm, the mall contained anchors like Publix, Eckerd and Bealls Outlet, plus other small shops that drew people downtown. The mall itself wasnt much to look at, but its art-deco sign is a muchmissed landmark along U.S. 41. Thirty-ve feet tall and weighing in at 5 tons, its big yellow arrow originally pointed west toward the mall, but was aimed at nothing but weeds when removed in 2005. A large crowd of residents who loved its quirkiness gathered to watch Signs-R-Us take it down. City Marketplace, the malls new owners, offered it to the city, but the greenand-yellow behemoth was destined to be moved to a site off Jones Loop Road, and likely still sits there rusting away. The other large commercial building in downtown didnt escape the wrath of Charley either, though its recalled with nostalgia instead of affection. The Professional Center, a three-story structure lled with ofces and small businesses, was downright ugly, as was its sign. To make matters worse, it sat on the site of the old Princess Hotel, a historical Punta Gorda landmark second only to the legendary Hotel Punta Gorda. The Professional Center could have been saved, but Franz Hartl, its Austrian owner, decided to dispense with the nostalgia and build the beautiful Sunloft Center, modeled after the old hotel, FROM PAGE 7 SUN FILE PHOTOThe original Black History mural, seen here, was painted on an East Marion Avenue building a block from U.S. 41 and was one of the most visible and impressive. It and the building were a tangle of rubble after Hurricane Charley.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 9 and now a landmark in its own right. The old Charlotte County Memorial Auditorium was the municipal equivalent of the Professional Center. Ugly, thrown up in a hurry and sited poorly, it looked like a bunker and doesnt measure up in any way to the 43,000-square-foot-jewel the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center that took its place. Nevertheless, it was a popular place heavily used by the community for events like ea markets, swap meets and inline skating. Across the Barron Collier Bridge, just south of the RaceTrac gas station, lay another landmark missing in action. The Harbor Inns two-story main building was wrapped in a bright blue faade that heralded a motorists arrival in Charlotte Harbor. Lying in an exposed location, the inn was gutted by the hurricane as it roared up the harbor. The inn and its associated outbuildings had a multitude of owners and uses over the years. It served as a hotel and housed a raw bar, an antique gallery and a tearoom, among other businesses. Although occupying a prime piece of land on U.S. 41 and the river, nothing has been built on the site in the ensuing decade. Only the remains of its concrete oor and the RaceTrac now welcome motorists crossing the bridge. One elegant old building that will be forever missed is the old Baptist Church building at 231 Cross St. (U.S. 41 south). At the time of the storm, it was occupied by the perfectly named Elegant Lees Bridal and Formal Wear shop, owned by Elizabeth Picerno. Built circa 1908, the building was covered in white clapboard siding and featured a tall steeple, timbers of heart pine and beautiful, old arched windows. All Charley left of the old girl were a few walls, a huge pile of debris and Picernos sign out front. No old-timer can drive by the location without it calling up memories of the storms legacy.Records of the pastStructures were not the only thing Charley took away from us; some historical damage was more subtle. Luckily, Vernon Peeples house on Olympia Avenue rode out the storm, and no damage was caused to his irreplaceable collection of historical artifacts and maps. Another collector, U.S. Cleveland, was not so lucky. His exposed, one-story frame house at the corner of Henry and McGregor Streets never had a chance, and a number of his documents and photos collected over many years were lost. Cleveland died less than a year later. Many of the buildings lost also were more than just old structures. Some bore the results of a decade of effort by the Punta Gorda Historical Mural Society. Although half the nonprot groups 20 murals were destroyed, the society quickly reloaded after the storm, and most have been repainted in different locations. Yet to appear are two murals: Flying Times (1998) and Historic Punta Gorda Aireld (2002). Both were destroyed along with the Punta Gorda Airport. Now that our airport is growing exponentially and becoming central to the local economy, the Charlotte County Airport Authority has not found a place for the repainting of the two murals, depicting our airports history, which included service as a training eld for budding World War II pilots. Big expanses of wall are getting scarce, and some of the repainted murals are well done, but in locations less suitable than the originals for viewing.

Its panels highlighted the accomplishments of members of the countys African-American community, and were a source of pride for black residents. It was beautifully re-created by the original artist, Fran Hines, on a wall at the rebuilt Baker Center, but it is not the beacon it was at the Marion location.Innocence lostThe population of Charlotte County will forever be divided into two parts those who lived through the aftermath of Charley rsthand and know what was lost, and those who have moved here since. The former nd it difcult to nd the right words to describe the devastation to the latter, who probably couldnt comprehend it anyway. Two things are certain. Those who were here lost their innocence, and those who arrived later should heed them. While this area sometimes may seem like the Garden of Eden, the hardy survivors know only too well that Mother Nature is not to be tried with.FROM PAGE 9 SUN FILE PHOTOThe Punta Gorda Herald building in downtown was one of the distinc tive old structures destroyed by Hurricane Charley. In the back, the Professional Center also was lost, although it ultimately was replaced by the Sunloft Center, which incorporates architectural details of the old hotel that once stood on the site.If Joseph Waksler goes the rest of his life without having to relive the horrify ing events of Aug. 13, 2004, he certainly wont lose any sleep over it. The owner of Mortons Ace Hardware saw his life crumble when the storm turned his store into rubble. Thankfully, he was the rst business on U.S. 41 to be rebuilt 18 months later bigger and better than ever becoming one of Charlotte Countys many survival stories. A tornado came down and hit every quarter mile and didnt destroy anything except certain buildings, Waksler said. It took away 15 precast concrete pillars, and the walls fell in after that. The stores next to him, one with a plywood roof and another with a tin roof, emerged almost unscathed. Mortons was Wakslers life, so he leveled the buildings he had on his two other lots next door and put up a new store. It wasnt easy, since his in surance didnt cover much. Waksler needed loans and incurred large amounts of debt to make it happen. T-shirts made the day of the reopening told the story: I waited 15 months, 14 days, 14 hours and 56 minutes to reopen. Waksler said the only reason he was able to sur vive when other businesses didnt was the conservative way he ran his business, allowing him to absorb the cost of rebuilding. Most of the stores didnt bounce back the same way we did. They werent prepared, and we were careful about how we ran the business, Waksler said. We maintained doing business the way we always did. Waksler said despite all the income some businesses make from hurricanes, it isnt worth it. No matter how much business comes from a hur ricane, if I dont see another one, I would not mind at all, Waksler said.Storm success: Mortons Ace HardwareBy CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENT C O M E S E E T H E W I G L A D Y ! !

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 11 PUNTA GORDA City Manager Howard Kunik likes to do a little experiment every time he gives out-of-town guests a tour of the city. The Punta Gorda resident, well-known for his informal yet informative bicycle tours, does the usual jaunt around the downtown and the historic district, showing off the citys beautiful parks and waterfront. But perhaps his favorite part of the tour is Gulf Breeze Apartments, a stretch of cozy homes along Gulf Breeze Avenue on the east side of the city. Before Hurricane Charley struck in 2004, the site was home to a slew of aging and dilapidated rental units built in the late 1960s by the Punta Gorda Housing Authority, the citys public housing agency. Charley toppled Gulf Breeze Apartments, along with two other housing authority communities, Riverview Gardens and Dolphin Villas both of which housed seniors. Hundreds of families were left homeless, many with no place to go.

Page 12 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 moved in with relatives living nearby; others left the state. Many more were relocated to FEMA Village, a makeshift community of trailers near the Punta Gorda Airport that became home to hundreds of Charlotte County families over the next two years. Some four years would pass before the housing authority could rebuild Gulf Breeze Apartments, the largest of its affordable housing communities. On his tours, Kunik makes sure not to give away any details of the evolution of Gulf Breeze Apartments, an award-winning and nationally recognized mixed-income community that has become a model for public-private housing. Like a comedian delivering a well-timed punchline, Kunik likes watching the reaction on visitors faces when he nally reveals the secret. I dont tell people (its public housing), Kunik said. I ask them rst what they think about the community, and they all say, Oh, its really nice. When he tells folks Gulf Breeze is a housing authority community for mixed-income families, the response usually goes something like this: Youre kidding? Really? And thats exactly what we wanted, he said. We wanted a well-managed, well-planned and well-designed development that could go anywhere in the city. Today, Gulf Breeze Apartments is home to more than 300 people of varying income levels, spread out over 49, two-story buildings with charming front porches, neatly kept yards and strong community spirit. It doesnt look like low-income at all, said PGHA Executive Director Loraine Helber. People dont feel stigmatized. It builds pride. In the late 1990s, the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development began a nationwide move ment to reduce the concentration of poverty that pervades typical housing projects. Landmark legislation passed under the Clinton administration allowed HUD to phase out government housing projects and replace them with mixed-nance housing by giving tax incentives to private development and encourage public-private partnerships. HUD established a program that gave investors tax credits in exchange for building mixed-income housing. The idea was that by blending market-rate units with government-subsidized units, communities would become stronger. At Gulf Breeze, the housing stock represents HUDs mixed-nance approach. The housing authority partnered with a private builder, Norstar Development USA, to build, lease and manage Gulf Breeze. Half the units in the community are tax-credit units; the other half are publicly subsidized. In all, there are 170 residential units representing one-, two-, threeand four-bedroom designs. Its a sharp contrast to the aging housing project Hurricane Charley wiped out, both in terms of style and management. The goal was to have a community that didnt look like the typical public housing rowhouse, said Jean Farino, the former executive director of the housing authority. Nobody should be ashamed of where they live. We wanted it to be a place where people were proud to live.FROM PAGE 11 SUN PHOTO BY BRENDA BARBOSAGulf Breeze Apartments is an award-winning, nationally recognized aordable housing community developed by the Punta Gorda Housing Authority and Norstar Development USA.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 13 Compared to what was there before, it is like a million percent improvement, PGHA board member Steve Fabien, said. Its beautiful. The housing authority has not been able to replace all 184 units that were destroyed by the storm in the world of HUD, things move very slowly. But that hasnt deterred the housing authority from continuing to push forward. July 6, after more than six years of requests for funding, the housing authority received 9 percent tax-credit funding from the Florida Housing Finance Corp. that will permit investor groups to provide equity toward the construction costs of a 60unit mixed-income senior housing development at the corner of Airport Road and Cooper Street, in exchange for tax considerations over the next 10 years. The PGHA will add its insurance proceeds and additional HUD grants to fund the $10 million project. Charlotte County also is contributing $75,000 through its State Housing Initiative Partnership program toward the development. Norstar Development USA will design, engineer and build The Verandas. The estimated start date for the project is in 2015. The PGHA plans to follow up the com pletion of The Verandas with a second phase, to bring the total number of senior units to 120. Its a drop in the bucket when one takes into account the need, Helber said. Currently, there are more than 600 people on waiting lists. Still, every step forward counts. We cant build them fast enough, Helber said. If we had enough housing to (satisfy) our list, it would be leased out before our ribbon-cutting ceremony.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comFROM PAGE 12 SUN FILE PHOTOHundreds were left homeless after Hurricane Charley destroyed public housing communities in Punta Gorda. When the last of the devastating winds of Hurricane Charley finally subsided in Charlotte County and officials took stock of the damage, one of the biggest problems that had to be addressed was the sudden homelessness. Immediately following the storm, Emergency Management Director Wayne Sallade was one of the individuals who participated in a charette, a French word meaning to have an intense planning meeting to resolve problems.

When I originally started the project, I figured it would be more about FEMA and about inefficiencies and problems with their building a park of such size, Griffiths told the Sun in 2007. But as I spoke to more and more people and did more research, the project (the film) gradually changed toward focusing on residents who were having trouble moving out because of the lack of affordable housing in the area, which has been documented by (the Sun).

Page 14 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 in a room, Sallade said. There were no distractions, no calls. Lunch was even brought in to us. We focused on solving the issue of people with no homes and no jobs. After 14 hours of brainstorming, the group using a Federal Emergency Management Agency template had fashioned a mobile home park that would consist of 551 units of double-wide trailers as temporary housing for Charlotte Countys displaced citizens. Sallade said 10,000 truckloads of fill were brought in, water and sewer lines were put in place, and by October, FEMA Village had been built. The mobile home park sat on 64 acres of county property, some of which was located where the Charlotte County Public Safety building now stands. Trailers were provided rent-free for 18 months (a six-month extension was added), but the occupants had to pay for their own utilities. There was a lot of red tape, but by Thanksgiving, it was pretty much full, Sallade said. Its population peaked at about 1,500. Although the dilemma of homelessness was solved, at least temporar ily, other problems arose. Residents of FEMA Village claimed they were too far away from everything, according to Sallade. That stayed with me, he said. We couldnt put it in a Walmart parking lot. We had to place it where county land was available. The county real estate department attempted to strategically locate it where property could hold that many double-wides. Charley was a surgical strike, Sallade said, and Punta Gorda lost quite a bit of public housing. We lost the complex on Cooper and Carmalita, the one next to the (Charlotte County) Justice Center on Marion, and others, he said. They were all wiped out. FEMA Village was also a melting pot of different people from various backgrounds. Soon, problems such as vandalism and drug use were reported. To combat the crime, the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office opened a substation there, and FEMA controlled the ingress and egress by hiring security guards. The nal residents moved out in February 2007. Sallade said despite its shortcomings, FEMA Village was a prototype for other storms, such as Hurricane Katrina that struck the Gulf Coast in 2005, smashing into Louisiana and Mississippi. Remember, Hurricane Charley was the biggest natural disaster in the U.S. in 12 years, Sallade said. The last big hurricane was Andrew in 1992. Although it has been 10 years since Charley, FEMA and communities still are addressing temporary housing in the aftermath of a major storm, according to Sallade.FROM PAGE 13 SUN FILE PHOTOFEMA Village popped up near the Charlotte County Jail and Interstate 75 within just a few months after Hurricane Charley.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 15 SUN FILE PHOTOOcials learned from FEMA Village, which many considered to be too large and too remote. The park eventually closed in February 2007.Everything from small three-room module units that resemble Quonset huts, to what is known as shutter boxes provided by Rotary Clubs, are being looked at. The mobile homes can house a family of eight, and contain everything they would need to survive. There is a guy in Polk County using old containers used on ships and converting them into luxurious homes, he said. They have Murphy beds, kitchen, etc. We could use a bare-bones version of them as well. Some of these temporary units can be quite attractive. Another concept being studied is the use of Sea Boxes, or rental storage units. These can be stacked and shipped out on short notice in the event of a natural disaster. Sallade said the subject of temporary housing is an area that still requires much preplanning before a storm strikes. Would we do it that way again? I would say no, he said. FEMA Village was too big. I would recommend multiple sites. One could be for families, and another for seniors. In spite of its drawbacks, FEMA Village did serve a useful purpose in the wake of Hurricane Charley. It took hundreds of residents with no homes and provided them emergency shelter during the rebuilding process.FROM PAGE 14 PULMONARY MEDICINE PULMONARY MEDICINE SERVICES: SERVICES: M a n a g e m e n t o f C h r o n i c O b s t r u c t i v e Management of Chronic Obstructive L u n g D i s e a s e Lung Disease I n t e r s t i t i a l L u n g D i s e a s e Interstitial Lung Disease P u l m o n a r y H y p e r t e n s i o n Pulmonary Hypertension E a r l y D e t e c t i o n o f L u n g C a n c e r & Early Detection of Lung Cancer & E n d o s c o p i c R e s e c t i o n Endoscopic Resection T r a c h e a l / B r o n c h i a l S t e n t P l a c e m e n t Tracheal/Bronchial Stent Placement A d v a n c e d P u l m o n a r y Advanced Pulmonary C r i t i c a l C a r e M e d i c i n e Critical Care Medicine PULMONARY ASSOCIATES PULMONARY ASSOCIATES OF CHARLOTTE COUNTY OF CHARLOTTE COUNTY ACCEPTING NEW ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS PATIENTSC a l l T o d a y F o r Y o u r A p p o i n t m e n t Call Today For Your Appointment 941-205-LUNG 941-205-LUNG6 0 3 E O l y m p i a A v e 603 E.

Page 16 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 School district leaders prepare for disasters especially in a post-Columbine world. You dont know when something is going to hit you, said Andrea Messina, director of board development for the Florida School Boards Association and former Charlotte County School Board chairwoman. The Charlotte County school district began preparing for critical incidents after the 1999 shooting that left 12 students and one teacher dead in the Colorado high school. District ofcials hold drills to practice their response and address problems that arise before a real one. In the spring of 2004, Charlotte County Public Schools had one of those critical incident drills. We had a practice run at Murdock Middle School, then-superintendent Dr. David Gayler said. It was so fortunate we had that because it was a mess. We couldnt communicate. It was hard to nd phone numbers. We found cellphones didnt work. As a result, the school district acquired 800 megahertz radios. And on Aug. 12, 2004, Gayler reminded everyone to charge theirs. When the storm hit, the same thing happened (with phones), Messina said. The only thing we had were the megahertz radios. Thank God. Charlotte County Public Schools sustained such heavy losses that the school district became a nationwide model for recovery. After all, no school district had ever suffered such widespread damage until about a year later, when Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. The stormMessina and Gayler met this spring at a waterfront restaurant in Nokomis to talk about the hurricane, and the remarkable efforts to get children back into classrooms. Its hard to believe its 10 years, Messina said. Both Messina and Gayler who at the time served as School Board chairwoman and superintendent, respectively had been living and working in Charlotte County for years before Charley hit. This was home. This was their community. This district was more than government budgets, more than bricks and mortar, more than FCAT scores. This was where their hearts beat: inside the halls of Charlotte High School, inside the classrooms at Vineland Elementary inside the ofces at Port Charlotte Middle School. And in early August 2004, they werent focused on radars. We were getting back to school, Messina said. This was back-to-school week for us. We didnt even have a rst week.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 17 briefs the countys leaders and rst responders. We had the Emergency Management meetings a couple days ahead of time, Gayler said. On Thursday, we called off school for the next day. Messina rode out the storm at a relatives Rotonda home. I picked up the cats and wife and wallet, Gayler said. They went to a friends house inland in Sarasota County. We were watching television. Just a sinking feeling, Oh my gosh, as you watch Punta Gorda, Charlotte Harbor. People that you love and care about are in the way of that storm. It was an awful, terrible, sinking feeling that a 140-mph storm was impacting so many people. We had no way of knowing whether those people were going to make it. Gayler paused, still choking back the tears 10 years later. It was terrible watching that, he said. In Charlotte County, we didnt have television, Messina recalled. She was listening to the radio when she heard someone say, It looks like Lebanon. My heart stopped and I remember thinking, Oh my God. This is my community. I truly did what they told me not to. I got in my car. I had to drive by our schools, she said. Messina got into Punta Gorda before ofcials shut off access to the city that night. When I saw the top of Charlotte High gone, I said, Oh God, because to me Charlotte High was kind of the beacon in Punta Gorda that everyone knew. I just remember feeling over whelmed, feeling completely overwhelmed. Gayler couldnt access the city until the next day. I saw Peace River Elementary and Meadow Park Elementary, he said. I knew there was pretty good damage. What got to me was Baker (Center) I just started crying Baker just broke my heart. I dont think Ill ever forget that feeling, he said. I just couldnt stand it. What are we going to do? What in the world are we going to do? Nobody knew. Gayler got in touch with other school district leaders and found an undamaged Charlotte Technical Center, where they held a 10 a.m. meeting to gather information and cancel classes. From my perspective, there was no doubt in my mind. It was going to be OK. It will be xed. Hell gure it out, Messina said of Gayler and his leadership. I freely admit, I did not know what we were going to do or how we were going to do it, Gayler said. I was alone.The damageSchool ofcials met that Saturday morning. We need to take a deep breath, Gayler said. First who can we get in touch with? They divvied up tasks and agreed to meet again at 5 p.m. at L.A. Ainger Middle School in Englewood to get a better assessment of the damage. It took until about Sunday to get a better picture, but they still needed the re ofcials, architects, engineers, etc., to inspect the schools. How do we educate 18,000 kids? Gayler said. Where are we going to educate them? By Monday, this is what they knew: Destroyed: Baker Center, Peace River Elementary, Neil Armstrong Elementary, East Elementary, Punta Gorda Middle and Charlotte High. The storm damaged other schools as well. The governor sent a messenger who said, School will be open in a week, Gayler said. I said, You tell the governor to tell me that himself. School district leaders put their heads together and concocted a plan for schools to partake in double sessions. For example: Liberty Elementary kids went to school from 7 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. Then, Neil Armstrong students arrived and went to classes at Liberty from 1:20 p.m. to 6:10 p.m. On Aug. 30, educating Charlotte County students continued even if it was early in the morning, into the evening, or at another school. And the kids, they coped. School leaders said they made the adjustment with little incident. It was unbelievable. I couldnt be more proud, Gayler said. Getting back to school was a normalcy the community needed, Messina said. Then, another symbol of normal life in Florida returned: Friday night football. Gov. Jeb Bush attended the Charlotte-Port Charlotte game and ipped the game coin.The rebuildEducation in Charlotte County has deep roots and inuence in the state.

Page 18 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 County teachers reportedly earned the highest wages in the state. Those working in a two-room school earned $615 annually. Those working in a school with 10 or more rooms earned $933, according to the school district. In 1937, Sallie Jones became the first female superintendent of a school district in Florida. In 2004, it began one of the largest rebuilding efforts in the nation. In addition to threats from three more hurricanes, Gayler and his team had to navigate the paperwork storm known as insurance and FEMA. The district also lost 1,200 students the first year after Charley, followed by a few more hundred the following year. The population is still not up to pre-Charley, Messina said. When you lose students, you lose funding. Gayler went to Tallahassee to lobby in the special session to keep from losing money. The last thing he wanted to do was to lay off employees who already had endured so much. You know what our issues are, Gayler said he told Bush. Please, is there any way to get that funding? He looked at me and said, Ill give you a call tomorrow. I got a call. Bush told him: We have just appropriated money for all the districts hit. Messina attributes the districts success to people who put other peoples needs first. People who had the confidence to make a decision, even if they didnt always have the authority. A true-north focus on why youre there. In 2007, Baker and Neil Armstrong reopened. In 2008, Peace River, East and Punta Gorda Middle reopened. From 2009-2010, Charlotte High began reopening in stages. What happened in Charlotte County after Charley happened because people cared about their community, because they cared about each other, and because they had a common purpose and common vision, Messina said. Pride of strength, pride of vision and pride of accomplishment, Gayler said. I had never been a part of something like that. Its almost a thing of beauty looking back. It happened because we were together.Email: cfeinberg@sun-herald.comFROM PAGE 17A dream to create a school supply depot for students in the region got off the ground a little bit quicker than expected due to Hurricane Charley, said Andrea Messina, chairwoman of the Charlotte County School Board in 2004, when Hurricane Charley came roaring up Charlotte Harbor. Tish Sheesley, executive director of the Charlotte Local Education Foundation, had been working to establish the school supply depot for a few years, Messina said. A school supply depot is a place where teachers can pick up donated supplies for students in their classes. However the program was not ready to be unveiled before Hurricane Charley because there wasnt a location to store the donations, Sheesley said. But donations of school supplies, along with many other items, began pouring into the county about two days after the hurricane, Messina said. And residents who had lost almost everything in the storm were looking at having to repurchase school supplies for their children during extremely trying times. Therefore, the depot became a necessity, Messina said. This was just one thing we could take off the parents plate, she added. Sheesley agreed, saying many families had lost their homes, and many could not work because their places of employment had been destroyed. Some of these people didnt even know where their next meal was coming from, Sheesley said. School ofcials had to nd a location to store the items, with more coming in each day. At one point, a Walmart truck showed up loaded with pallets of school supplies from a school district in Mississippi, Messina said. For the rst few days after the hurricane, the donated supplies were placed in the Murdock Administration Building. But the donations soon outgrew that space, and a larger location had to be found. The supplies eventually ended up in the visiting team School depot continues after CharleyBy PAUL FALLON STAFF WRITER Continued on page 19 SUN FILE PHOTOCharlotte County school district leaders managed to get students back into classes within a few weeks after Hurricane Charley.

The items then were sorted and placed into backpacks. The teachers then would come and pick up the backpacks to distribute to the students at school. Our goal was that not one parent had to buy school supplies for their child, Messina said. The depot had an immediate impact on the teachers as well as the students, Sheesley said. For example, a male teacher from Charlotte High School came into the depot to obtain supplies for his students, she said. That teacher had spent all of his annual allocation for supplies that had been completely lost when the storm destroyed the high school. He was close to tears when he picked up the supplies he needed, Sheesley said. She referred to the depot as a healing place where people could begin to return to normalcy. We had people that had been displaced and without electricity for a month, she said. People could come into the depot and share their hurricane experiences and talk about getting back into the classroom. The supply depot was such a successful program that it continues to operate a decade after its creation, said Mary Fred Clemmons, current executive director of the Charlotte Local Education Foundation. The depot now is located in a trailer behind the school district administration building on Murdock Circle. Although it is up and running, the CLEF is in need of a volunteer to staff the pickup location, Clemmons said.

Page 20 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Port Charlotte and Charlotte high schools have been rivals for decades, but the students at both schools banded together to get through the aftermath of the devastating storm known as Hurricane Charley. Charley destroyed several schools throughout the Charlotte County school district, including Charlotte High. The decision was made to send students from Charlotte High to Port Charlotte High, in order to keep the children in school through the first part of the year, then-CHS prinicpal and current Charlotte Technical Center director Barney Duffy said. The students who attended the joint high school forever will be known locally as the Tarponites a combination of the two mascots, the Tarpons and the Pirates. Duffy had been principal of CHS for four years when the storm hit. Obviously this was going to be a challenge, he said. The storm turned our worlds upside down. It was decided that the students from the different schools would attend two different class sessions at Port Charlotte High. PCHS students got the morning session, from about 6:45 a.m. to around 12:45 p.m. CHS students then came into the school around 1 p.m. and stayed until around 6 p.m., said Steve Dionisio, PCHS principal. The students had to cooperate to make things work. Simple things like allocation of lockers had to be readdressed with the influx of about 2,000 students from Charlotte High. Students from Port Charlotte received half the lockers, and the remainder went to students from CHS. Our kids had to double up so we had enough lockers, and so did the CHS kids, Dionisio said. Teachers also had to share space at the facility, he added. For example, Dionisio had two bookshelves in his office, so he gave one to Duffy.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 21 For the most part, it went as well as possible, but it was an interesting time, Dionisio said. But all the staff and faculty were aware that the two schools had a long-standing rivalry, and they wanted to ensure that trouble did not spring up because of this. James DeGaeta, 27, of St. Petersburg, was a senior at CHS when the storm destroyed his school. Like many, DeGaeta was worried about moving into the rival schools facilities to take classes. Going into it, I thought there would be lots of fights and stuff, he said. But everything ended up going fine. DeGaeta believes the experience brought the two communities closer together. Its funny how a tragedy can do that, he added. DeGaeta went on to say the rivalry still existed between the Tarpons and the Pirates, but that it became more respectful. Brett Serrero, 27, of Port Charlotte, was another CHS student who spent about half of his school year at PCHS. Like DeGaeta, he believes the move went very well. He added that the adver sity seemed to make the community grow as a whole. I think it made every one stronger, he said. It brought us all together. Ryan Nolan, 27, of Atlanta, was also a senior at CHS the year Charley hit Charlotte County. He thought going to school in the afternoons was pretty neat. He also believes the PCHS students showed a lot of class in how they accepted their rivals from across the river. They had to sacrifice a lot, he said. They were going to school really early. Nolans girlfriend, Gabriella Clemente, 27, of Atlanta, was one of those PCHS students who had to be in school as the sun was rising. We were coming into school when it was pitch dark outside, she said. We (PCHS students) werent thrilled about the class times. Like others, Clemente believes the decision to combine the two schools brought the community together during trying times. I think it tore down the walls of this huge rivalry, she said. Abby Van Arsdale, 27, of St. Petersburg, graduated from PCHS during the year of the Tarponites. Like Clemente, she was not happy about the schools early start time. Getting up that early for school wasnt fun, she said. Having the combined schools gave Van Arsdale a unique story to tell her friends about her senior year at PCHS, she added. Megan Culbertson, 28, of Fort Myers, remembers the experience as being surreal. She also remembers many of her classmates not being pleased when they heard the CHS students would be coming to their school. It was almost like our house was being invaded, she said. But it turned out pretty good. It was really cool to see that even though we were rivals, everyone came together, Culbertson added.

Page 22 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 PUNTA GORDA Charlotte County Airport Authority Chairman Don Lee and Executive Director Gary Quill were watching a hand-held television with Charlotte County Emergency Management Director Wayne Sallade when they witnessed Hurricane Charley change direction on Aug. 13, 2004. Charley, a Category 4 hur ricane, had made a sudden right turn into Charlotte Harbor and was not heading toward Tampa the projected path it was forecast to take as it headed up the west coast of Florida. I knew right then we were in for some trouble, Quill said. Lee and Quill remained at the now-dubbed Punta Gorda Airport during the entire storm. They leapfrogged from building to building, trying to avoid Charleys destructive winds that sometimes gusted to as much as 190 mph. All total, there were about 20 of us, Lee said. Gary and I and the rest were maintenance personnel. We kept an eye on the roof and if it started leaking, we jumped in our cars and went to the next one. Lee said when the storm subsided, he and Quill took a quick assessment of the damage the airport had sustained and it was catastrophic. Every business was pretty much destroyed, he said. The older hangars were gone as well. Punta Gorda resident Dave Gruman found it rough going when he got to the airport because of the large amount of debris blocking the roads. When he nally reached his hangar he discovered that it had collapsed, destroying his Beechcraft Twin Travelair plane inside. I was told by the insur ance company that there was nothing I could do with it, he said. It was insured, so I just accepted that fact. A good friend of mine said it just wasnt worth it. So I split the gas and still go out with him once in a while. Flying isnt the only thing in life. Unlike Gruman, Heath Stachans Beechcraft Bonanza aircraft suffered no damage. I was parked in hangar 76 and got a new door out of it, he said I lucked out. It all depended on which hangar you were in. When the eye passed overhead, the wind changed direction. The old hangars were pretty much razed. As I recall, about 40 aircraft were totaled and cut up for scrap, and another 40 needed repairs. Another lucky pilot that day was Donald Dugas. His hangar was across from the Civil Air Patrol with his Beechcraft Bonanza parked inside, and it too was left unscathed.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 23 about 3 to 4 feet and I had a scratch on the nose, he said. That was it. Despite the tremendous destruction left behind in the wake of Hurricane Charley, Lee wasted no time in calling an emergency meeting to begin the rebuilding process. It was estimated that the airport sustained more than $20 million worth of damage. I got all the bankers together and we decided how much money would be needed to get us up and running as soon as possible, he said. Quill said the airport received an $11 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, $8 million from the insurance company, and another $2 million from the Federal Aviation Administration and the state of Florida. We borrowed $11.5 million from the state as well, Quill said. And we paid every penny back. Lee said the airport was used as a staging area to distribute supplies throughout the county. Amazingly, within a year many pilots had new hangars. With the loss of businesses, about 800 jobs were lost, Lee said. Ten years later, an estimated 1,000 people are employed at the airport. It took us about two years to be back in full operation, Lee said. And we really have grown since then. In a decade, the Punta Gorda Airport has seen incredible growth. Today, with Allegiant Air flying to 23 U.S. cities, and with the huge influx of passengers to the county, it is the fourth-fastest-growing airport in the country. Recently, the authority commissioners gave the green light to an $11.5 million terminal expansion as well. Lee said he has been on the Airport Authority for 15 years, serving as its chairman twice. This airport is like my child, he said. Thats why I stayed here during the storm. It was my biggest challenge. I couldnt leave.FROM PAGE 22 SUN FILE PHOTOThe Punta Gorda Airport sustained damage estimated at $20 million. 941-627-3869 AAA THE ORIGINAL S C H W A R T Z S C H W A R T Z SCHWARTZ R O O F I N G I n c R O O F I N G I n c ROOFING Inc.

Page 24 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Its a scene nobody in Arcadia wants to see happen again: a city in tatters, buildings flattened, homes destroyed, and a downtown that looked as though Godzilla had gone through it. It was Hurricane Charley, and it decimated the area 10 years ago with little warning and almost no time to get out. As most communities do after such a catastrophe, the people came together to rebuild, and today the downtown area is better than ever. But it didnt come without some pain. Some buildings didnt make it, many were damaged, and some of those left unscathed had to deal with unscrupulous kinds who sought to make a quick buck at others expense. Martha Craven, owner of Wheelers, the oldest restaurant in Arcadia, did not sustain much damage, although it was without electricity for days. It didnt seem as bad as it actually was. When we went out, it was pretty devastating for the town and the people, Craven said. We recouped very quickly. Craven had a hand in that. Wheelers got up and running by emptying out the freezer. Staff got the grill going and gave away the food to hungry people. Craven, who owns several buildings, had roof damage to nearly all of them. She had just opened the Last Chapter Cafe Hot Fudge Shop, but closed it down for a month to attend to her buildings. She also bought two buildings from a man whose buildings were so badly damaged it would have been cheaper to tear them down. We begged the City Council not to tear them down because that was almost a whole city block. The next day, the owner asked if we wanted them. He made us a good offer, and we took them and redid them. Holly Incitti, who today runs Arcadia Fried Chicken and the Oak Street Deli, had just moved onto Langfang Avenue from New Jersey a month earlier. Having never experienced a hurricane, she said she thought it would be neat to experience one. My boys were out with plastic bags, blowing in the wind. We didnt realize it was going to be so bad because it was supposed to go to Tampa, Incitti said. And then it got bad, and scary. Fortunately, the house emerged with only a broken window, with the family having a chicken dinner by candlelight. The rest of the property? Not so much. Their oaklined driveway tumbled down, leaving Incitti cleaning up after it. You can still see the downed trees. The guy on the truck used to tell me to get them to the end of the driveway and Ill pull them out, Incitti said. I worked my brains out with my tractor, but at last I could get out of the driveway.Arcadia pulls together to rebuildBy CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN FILE PHOTOResidents of Arcadia pulled together to repair and save the historic buildings.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 25 DESOTO COUNTY Although it took probably less than an hour for Hurricane Charley to wreck both the Arcadia Rodeo and the Turner Agri-Civic Center, officials said it took years to get both fully operational again. Hurricane Charley destroyed the rodeo arena, and Hurricane Frances which blew in a few short weeks later exacerbated the damage. The south side of the arena took the hardest hit from the storm, with the concession stands and south bleachers taking the brunt of the damage. The north side withstood the storm better, but the roof received significant damage. Former DeSoto County Commissioner Ronald Neads still serves on the rodeo board of directors and said at the time of Hurricane Charley that the rodeos cancellation would greatly affect the economy of the entire region. Number one, its going to eliminate all the financial contributions we made to the economy, especially to the civic organizations that work with the rodeo, Neads said at the time. Number two, a lot of people use the hotels and motels, so thats going to take away from the community. Its not only the devastation to the rodeo, its going to affect the whole community. Everything is impacted by Hurricane Charley, in one form or another. Ive said this from the getgo: Its going to be bad. It will be five to six years before we recover economically from this. Today, 10 years later, Neads said he clearly remembers the effects of Charley on the rodeo grounds. The south end was totally destroyed, with about $750,000 in damage, he said. We had to completely take down the bleachers and reconstruct them. On the north end, a lot of tin was ripped off the building. It basically became a staging area for the division of forestry. They had a reaction team they brought in there for that. Neads added it took a lot of work from the community and the Federal Emergency Management Of course there were people who lost everything homes and businesses. After all this, the residents bonded and helped get the city back on its feet. Folks around here are pretty strong-willed. Everybody pulled together. The word was out that the town was gone, and it wasnt, Craven said. People just put it back together.FROM PAGE 24 SUN FILE PHOTOSDeSoto County took a hard hit from Hurricane Charley, which quickly zipped inland on Aug. 13, 2004.

Within two years, we were running back to normal, he said. We had a fundraiser and brought in the Bellamy Brothers, a popular country band, for that. A lot of people came and paid the admission to help get the rodeo back on its feet. Between the fundraisers and the insurance, that pretty much took care of it. We learned a lot from the hurricane, but there really wasnt much we could have done different with the bleachers. Theres not much you can do except hope for the best. I hope I live in Florida the rest of my life without seeing another hurricane. Charley hammered the Turner Center until a section of the east-end roof separated from its wall and collapsed into the arena area. Thanks to the quick action by DeSoto County emergency personnel, terrified refugees who cowered in hallways, restrooms and the lobby area escaped the experience largely unscathed. The separation of the roof and the wall was not altogether unpredictable. The Turner Center originally was envisioned as an exhibition-entertainment center. As the design of the building evolved, the DeSoto County Commission made the decision to approve a design enabling the center to withstand 140 mph winds. Then, Hurricane Charley came roaring north toward DeSoto County with sustained 145 mph winds and gusts that might have been higher than that, along with reports of tornadoes. Mandy Hines, current interim county administrator, said it cost just over $9 million to repair the damages Hurricane Charley inflicted on the Turner Center. They had to essentially reconstruct the whole east side of the building, Hines said. If I remember right, it was almost a two-year process. There was a lot of dealing with insurance, dealing with forensic architects, and trying to figure out where and why the building failed when it did, so there was a lot of administrative work done during that timeline as well. Hines added a settlement agreement was reached for the damages done to the Turner Center, but as part of that agreement, a nondisclosure pact was made among the insurance company, the county and the Turner Center, barring further discussion of the terms. She said the big lesson learned from the event was to discontinue the center as a hurricane shelter, despite the fact that its reconstruction has renewed the buildings strength. It was a certied shelter through the state, she said. It was mitigated to be a storm shelter, and regardless of how its constructed now, with that failure, we no longer use it in any form as a shelter.FROM PAGE 25 SUN FILE PHOTOSTilden Hooper from Carthage, Texas, riding Painted Kitty, puts in an 84-point ride in bareback riding earlier this year at the 86th Annual Arcadia All-Florida Championship Rodeo The Granddaddy of Em All! at the Arcadia Rodeo Arena, which had to be rebuilt after Hurricane Charley.

My first impression was we would never be able to rebuild thats how bad it was, he said. Tree limbs completely covered the roads, and 80 percent of the 110 homes on the island had suffered damage some quite extensively. Windows were blown out and roofs were ripped off. If someones home was recently built, they made out, he said. It was like a domino effect one window would blow out and a roof would be torn off. The historic Collier Inn, built in 1906, was severely damaged as well. The old brick chimney of the three-story building went through the flat roof of the bar, creating a 4-foot-by4-foot hole in the bar floor and main dining room. The north side wall of the dining room separated and water poured through it. The 10-ton air-conditioning unit located on the flat roof was blown clear down to the beach, according to Fitzsimmons.

Useppa Island is privately owned. It was purchased in the mid-1970s by Garfield Beckstead, who re-opened the Useppa Island Club and restored the mile-long, half-mile-wide island to its unique elegance. Added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1996 due to its archaeological importance, Useppa Island is well-known for its luxurious homes. Useppa will always maintain the Old Florida style of elegant charm that its history dictates, according to its website. The Useppa Island Club, known today as the Useppa Inn and Dock Company, LTD, and its individual property owners continue to be driven by a vision of excellence founded on the islands centuries-old tradition of gracious hospitality, and its long legacy of historical significance. But on the afternoon of Friday, Aug. 13, 2004, that all would be put to the test in the form of a storm of monstrous proportions a Category 4 hurricane named Charley. Fortunately, Useppa Island residents had an ace in the hole a staging area at the Palm Island resort. From that vantage point, they could transport heavy equipment and supplies to assist in their rebuilding. Two 80-foot barges made the 18-mile trip nearly every day to jump-start the process. By making the decision to rebuild, the ferries at Cape Haze really saved us, he said. We had every imaginable piece of equipment there. Fitzsimmons said it took several weeks just to assess the damage. With no power, people scrounged generators to cut up the tree limbs scattered across the roads. Surprisingly, one day a Federal Emergency Management Agency helicopter landed and asked Fitzsimmons what they needed. He told the FEMA representatives that the two biggest items were generators and chain saw blades, because some days, they would go through blades like crazy, he recalled.

On Aug. 13, 2005 one year to the day after Hurricane Charley roared ashore the Collier Inn officially reopened its doors. We had a big party, Fitzsimmons said. I would guess we had 300 to 400 guests attend. In the decade since Charley, Fitzsimmons looks back on the restoration process with pride. In three years, most homes had been repaired or rebuilt, and hundreds of oak trees were replanted that were lost in the storm. Lots of vegetation came back, he said. The leaves had been stripped from the limbs, even on the palm trees. Its hard to imagine what it looked like, especially if someone new comes to the island. When they look at pictures, they shake their heads. The real story here is how the people joined together and accomplished that. They did a great job.FROM PAGE 28 PHOTO PROVIDEDAbout 80 percent of the residen tial dwellings sustained some type of damage during the storm.Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. Thats from an inscription on the James Farley Post Ofce in New York City, translated by Prof. George Herbert Palmer of Harvard University 100 years ago from an ancient Greek work of Herodotus describing the Persian system of mounted postal carriers more than 2,500 years ago. Those postal carriers may never have had to deal with a storm like Hurricane Charley, which ripped through the region and brought everything to a screeching halt, including the U.S. Postal Service. But it came back just three days later, thus providing the rst sign of normalcy to an area still picking up the pieces from the states worst natural disaster since Hurricane Andrew. Current postmaster Steve Bernier was not at Punta Gorda when the storm happened, but he has a vivid account of what happened that day and the aftermath. We were prepared just in case, because even though it was projected to go to Tampa, we could have had surge, Bernier said. Being so close to the water, we were prepared. We moved the trucks and covered our terminals so we didnt get water damage. No mail was delivered on Friday, as the USPS prepared for the storm. The mail wasnt delivered Saturday either, as staff assessed the damage, Bernier said.

Page 30 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 the post ofce became fully operational. The people had that sense of calm, that things were back to normal, even if they werent, Bernier said. We had to make sure it was safe for them to deliver, and that our employees were safe at home and here at work. John Eastman, a 27year veteran of the USPS, remembers all too well how the postal service came together to serve its customers again even those who had post ofce boxes. On Monday, anybody who could possibly get here came in. The water was ankle-deep throughout the building, Eastman said. The air conditioning units on the roof were on the ground, and there were holes in the building. We had to bring in emergency generators. Outside, the carriers set up tents in the heat and rain to case and carry the mail for delivery, while the clerks cleaned up the inside, Eastman said. All in the front parking lot, we set up another tent and had a box for every P.O. box holder. We also set up a utility truck, which I worked at, to sell stamps, help mail packages, whatever they needed, Eastman said. As for the trucks going out, Eastman agreed with the assertion that the USPS brought normalcy back to the area. It was one thing the community could count on. Youre going to get the mail as quickly as possible, Eastman said. The people understood. They knew what we were up against, and did what it could to cooperate, because they knew they had a sense of normalcy. Eastman also never forgot the work they got from postal workers outside the area, as those ofces sent food, snacks and cold drinks to the workers. The following week, they set up a long trailer to handle the work usually done there. This was done for eight months while the building was being brought back into shape. Eastman said there are still indentations in the parking lot that serve as a reminder. It took about a month for the mail service to become fully functional, since there was no power and just minor damage and ooding to the annexes in Port Charlotte and Murdock. Today, the USPS has an expert come in around the start of hurricane season to talk to the workforce regarding hurricane awareness, Bernier said. It also has contingency plans to tell them where the vehicles go and FROM PAGE 29Two bicycle shops critical to making the area popular for bicyclists easily could have pedaled out of town after Hurricane Charley. Acme Bicycle and The Bicycle Center both sustained heavy losses in the storm. Karen Freeman, owner of Acme Bicycle Shop at the Cross Trails Center in Punta Gorda, saw her original store on Marion Avenue destroyed, along with her merchandise. The front window blew in and the roof blew off. Freeman was battered, but determined to get back in business. It was going to take the landlord some time to rebuild, and we wanted to be up and running, so we moved here (to Cross Trails Center), Freeman said. We were open three months after the hurricane. In between, it took a lot of hustling and some luck for that to become a reality. We didnt cry and whine. In a matter of days, we were working with the insurance company and got out on foot and found a place, Freeman said. We had to get it up to grade, but if we had whined and cried, we wouldnt be here.

Page 34 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Right after Hurricane Charley departed, the spir it of the residents of Punta Gorda came quickly to the fore. The rebuilt city you now see when driving over the A.W. Gilchrist Bridge owes much to the cooper ation and can-do enthusiasm of public-minded citizens whose only wish was to help rebuild the town they love. That spirit manifested in many ways, most immediately by neighbors quietly helping neighbors or those in need with small acts of charity repeated thousands of times. It also took a more organized form. Team Punta Gorda formed three months after Charley, added hundreds of members, quickly raised $250,000, and participated in a collaborative rebuilding effort with city government, businesses and property owners. The result: a citizens master plan and a community far better than anyone thought possible before the storm. With 2,500 members, Team is still going strong and helping to shape the citys future. Another group of residents left its stamp on the city as well, coming together quickly to reinforce the notion that Punta Gorda was a city deter mined to remember and rebuild. Its name a perfect one was the Spirit of Punta Gorda committee. Numbering some 25 people or so, it organized a first-anniversary celebration with the same name to commemorate the collective recovery effort. A crowd of 5,000 showed up in Gilchrist Park that day, including a number of political dignitaries and even Weather Channel meteorologist Jim Cantore. Highlights were a concert by trop-rock troubadour Jim Morris and the Big Bamboo Band, which performed a new song he wrote for the occasion, and the unveiling on a flatbed trailer of two pieces of a statue that soon would make a more permanent statement about the citys resilience. That Spirit of Punta Gorda statue now stands in a quiet corner of Laishley Park.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 35 unfamiliar with Charley and those who suffered through the post-storm carnage. Heres how it came to be: Marilyn Thorndycraft, unofficial leader of the committee, said, Bonnie Benande, Barbara Albin, Linda Kegley and I were sitting in the ruins one day and thought we should do something. We were thinking about ways we could help the city recover, and wanted to do some kind of an art thing. When I was semi-awake, it came to me one night to honor the spirit of the people of Punta Gorda with two palm trees, one bent and one straight to show the peoples strength. Kegley drew up the design, which showed a tall, straight palm in honor of the citys spirit and a bent one highlighting the power of the hurricane. The base was a giant sundial set for 4:30 p.m., when the fiercest winds blew through town. The next task was to find someone to create it, not an easy chore since most artists arent used to making such large pieces. Linda (Kegley) started to look for an artist and came up with Peggy McTeague, and we commissioned her to do it, Thorndycraft said. Linda had worked with Peggy, and knew she did large sculptures. Plus, she is local and had gone through the hurricane herself out on Pine Island. McTeague chose to work with materials as innovative as the design itself debris from Charley. Thorndycraft said, Her idea was to go to the landfill. I went out with FROM PAGE 34 PHOTO PROVIDED BY MARILYN THORNDYCRAFTMoving, assembling and mounting a metal sculpture weighing several tons was a daunting logistical and engineering challenge, made some what easier by the generosity of CORE Construction, which loaned the services of employee David Sabo to supervise the whole process.Continued on page 36 50468117 Look Younger At Any Age Come Pamper Yourself While Overlooking Beautiful Punta Gorda From Three Floors Up M ICHAEL S TAMPAR D.O Call for complimentary consultation P U N T A G O R D A 2 0 5 3 0 3 0 P U N T A G O R D A 2 0 5 3 0 3 0 P UNTA G ORDA 205-3030 201 West Marion Avenue, Suite 1311, Punta Gorda 3rd floor of the Sunloft Bldg., Corner of Taylor and Marion A premium nationally recognized spa as a true sign of growth and sophisticated improvement.

They gave us permission to go in and pick out the materials she wanted, mostly just pieces of steel she thought would work. It was all from buildings and houses hit by the hurricane. Just like the citys rebuilding effort, the work on the statue was a community effort, and not just from Punta Gorda. The committee itself was strong and united and came from all walks of life. Local sponsors, both private individuals and businesses, stepped up, as did those from other areas. Thorndycraft specifically cited Naples Stock Development, which became the major financial backer of the effort; and CORE Construction, which loaned the ser vices of David Sabo, who became the indispensable project manager for the sculpture. The statue was dedicated with another big celebration Aug. 13, 2007, in Laishley Park. The city took ownership and maintains the site and the sculpture, which is still in like-new condition. CORE also added lights so the site can be appreciated from boats. Thorndycraft frequently visits the Spirit sculpture and enjoys talking with visitors there about the storm. Shes never heard anything but praise about the memorial, particularly from those who suffered through Charley and its aftermath. For them, the chorus of the spirit song Morris wrote is particularly meaningful and worth recalling: When youre picking up the pieces of your hopes and dreams, When youre looking for a place thats safe and warm, When its hard to carry on, our spirit keeps us strong, When youre staring at the eye of the storm.FROM PAGE 35Restaurants such as Hooters and Outback Steakhouse served in important positions after Hurricane Charley. These restaurants, along with others, fed local and visiting rst responders at the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce and at the Punta Gorda Public Safety Building. In Hooters case, since it couldnt cook anything inside its Murdock restaurant without electricity, restaurant leaders called in some reinforcements from the corporate ofce in Tampa. Chris Hansard, who ran the Port Charlotte restaurant during the storm and now runs the Bradenton location, said staff had a hurricane-preparedness list in case a storm did come. But with no power, there wasnt much it could do. But Hansard had a plan. If rst responders couldnt get to Hooters, then Hooters would come to them. We called the corporate ofce and requested a por table Wing Wagon, which they brought up from Fort Lauderdale and set up at the Punta Gorda re station, Hansard said. It was there that police, re, National Guard and anyone desperate for a hot meal could get one, Hansard said. The Wing Wagon remained in Punta Gorda for several days. Hooters in Murdock sustained minor damage. Outside, a 6-foot grill with coolers and generators was set up, along with a diesel-powered refriger ated truck sent by corporate so it could stay in business. We were able to keep everything chilled and locked up at night, and we could cook chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs, Hansard said. We charged $4, just so people can get a hot meal and a cold drink. So many people didnt have anything. For the National Guard, it prepared meals to go if they called ahead and told them how many meals they needed before the curfew went into effect. Hooters got power restored within two weeks, but the restaurant still gave free meals to all rst responders on duty. Hansard remembers the sense of community his staff had, regardless of their circumstances. We had people who lost their homes, who still came to work. It was a full team effort, Hansard said. We did a golf tournament and car washes for the high schools. In a small community, you need to get involved and help out, because everybody was hurting.Storm success: Restaurants step upBy CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENT CURRY MOVING & STORAGE, INC.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 37 PUNTA GORDA In the aftermath of Hurricane Charley, local government found itself overwhelmed with the monumental task of providing for the basic needs of thousands of displaced and affected people. Charley, a Category 4 storm, punched Punta Gorda squarely in the face, knocking out infrastructure, homes, businesses and local landmarks. Needless to say, safety and cleanup were rst on the list of priorities. Recovery came later. From the rubble of those early days rose a group of nonpartisan, nonpolitical, volunteer activists who banded together not only to assist in cleanup, but also to drive recovery. A few months after Charley, citizens organized to create a nonprot they named Team Punta Gorda, and they began to fundraise. (Team Punta Gorda) decided that when we heal, when we recover, heres an opportunity to make our community better than we had it before, said Punta Gorda City Councilwoman and former Team CEO Nancy Prafke. They took the time to say, Lets look at the bigger picture and take a long-term view. In just eight weeks, with the help of the Charlotte Community Foundation, the group raised $250,000. It hired Miami architect and urban designer Jaime Correa, who lived through the devastation of Hurricane Andrew in 1992 to help Punta Gorda reinvent itself. In April 2005, Correa brought over a team of experts from Miami to lead a weeklong series of charettes, or public brainstorming sessions, on design options. The original thought was, we will build a master plan for the community, we will gift it to the city and the county, and then well go away, Prafke said. We thought: Theyll be so thrilled to have this, they will want to take it and run with it, and we can go back to our normal lives. But thats not what happened. City and county leaders were so embroiled in providing basic services, ensuring public safety and maintaining public health, there was little time and energy to think about what Punta Gorda and Charlotte County would look like in 10 years. It became apparent that if the master plan was going to get implemented, rather than just sit on the shelf, the citizens were going to have to stay involved, Prafke said. So the citizens stayed involved and created committees to help get different aspects of the plan incorporated into the citys strategic plan. In 2005, City Manager Howard Kunik came on board to help the city through its recovery. Howard was a real asset that helped Team Punta Gorda accomplish things, said current Team CEO Nancy Johnson. He is a modern, professional city manager. He values transparency, and hes incredibly empowering. Once order was re-established, the citys rst priority was to get the downtown back on its feet. The idea was that if businesses could be re-established downtown, it would encourage further development. But that was slow in taking off. At the center of Punta Gordas downtown was the former City Marketplace, a piece of property that became entangled in a long, drawn out foreclosure process. So Team decided to change tack, and begin focusing their efforts on other parts of the city. This town acted like if that property did not get developed, we were doomed, Johnson said. And a couple of years into it, it became clear nothing was going to happen. We decided we were going to move forward anyway. People said, Were getting on with it. Today, City Marketplace still sits empty. All around it, however, the city has blossomed. With Teams help, the city has restored its magnicent waterfront, preserved the historic character of the downtown, installed miles of pedestrian and bicycle-friendly pathways, restored parks and planted trees, built community gar dens, and created a popular Team Punta Gorda emerges after stormBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERContinued on page 38 rf nrfrtrbrb rb f 50457707 ..,r

But today we are very much part of the discussion. This year, Team also celebrates its 10-year anniversary. The group is gearing up for a big birthday bash in October. The focus of Team Punta Gorda these days is not so much on recovery, as it was in the early days. Today, Team is focused on development. We want it to be about all of Punta Gorda, not just the downtown, Johnson said. Instead of being individual advocates, were becoming institutionalized into the decision-making bodies of the city and county, so that we have a real role in future development.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comFROM PAGE 37Today, its an Englishstyle restaurant and pub that features Guinness and Monday night dart leagues, with a pizza parlor next door. However, 10 years ago, there was the possibility that the 100-plus-year-old Icehouse building that was used as an ice plant for the fishing industry would face the wrecking ball. Thankfully, the owners refused to demolish the structure that was built in 1894, rebuilding it to its current glory. John and Pauline Berry bought the historic building that stood empty for years. And then Charley came, which all but destroyed the building when it tore the roof off and caved in the south wall. It was pretty bad. Many historic buildings here were destroyed, said Daryl Fry, general manager of the IceHouse Pub. I was pretty surprised they fixed it. The Berrys wanted to do a pub business and thought it was a great building for it in a good location. He wanted an English pub so he could play his darts and have his league and get something to eat, Fry said. With the help of Punta Gorda Construction Management, that vision came to fruition. The pub opened in 2008, and has been successful since. Fry said the newness of the place allowed it to absorb the impact of the areas economic collapse. Last year the pub added a patio. Things have been going good since we opened. So, weve been on the ups and were doing well so far, Fry said. The building is also home to Manatees Pizza, which has served Punta Gorda for more than 20 years. Fry said the experience taught him a lot about hurricanes. We all thought the storm was going to go to Tampa, so we learned how quickly hurricanes can come at you, which will make me leave the area next time because staying for another one wouldnt be a great idea, Fry said.Storm success: IceHouse PubBy CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTO BY CHRISTY FEINBERGOwners John and Pauline Berry restored the historic building, which sustained damage in Hurricane Charley, and opened the popular IceHouse Pub. 50470809 We can help you plan and relieve your family of having to make tough decisions during a period of great stress & grief...

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 39 What Bob Alexander thought would be just an ordinary day turned out to be the highlight of his career. A resident of Charlotte County since 1972, he had worked at Clear Channel radio for about 12 years at that time, where he delivered the local news and co-hosted a country FM morning show. His boss, station manager Mike Moody, assigned him to the county Emergency Operations Center to update listeners about the coming storm. The whole morning we heard Charley was going to go up north, give us a little wind and rain, and head for Tampa, Alexander said. We didnt have any sense of anything that was going to be out of the ordinary at that point. Then at noon, (Emergency Management Director) Wayne Sallade came into his office and looked at us and said, Boys, everything is changing and that was the first indication that things may not be right. At about 2 p.m., Sallade emerged from his office and ordered all nonessential personnel to leave the EOC. The building was equipped to handle only a Category 2 storm. He came out about 3 p.m. there were about two dozen of us sitting in the main room and said to us that Charley is a (category) 3, and its turning toward us, Alexander recalled. He said we were all welcome to stay, but he couldnt guarantee our safety in this building. The radio personality said that, for a moment, he was tempted to cut and run. Your first instinct is, I need to get out of here, but that lasted for only a second, he said. This is what I was trained to do. Youre here to inform your community and try to keep them safe. There was no hesitation after that. About a half hour after that, Sallade bolted from his office with a rain slicker in one hand and a radio in the other. He was shouting and Ive never seen Wayne do that, Alexander said. He said its a Category 4, 140 mph winds and heading right for us. Everybody out, now.

Page 40 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 and throw it in our van, and drive about a mile to what was then the new terminal at the then-Charlotte County Airport. By the time we did that, the winds had already reached almost gale force. We made it inside just in time. Alexander and Moody hooked up their equipment, and instructed the lone employee left at the studio to put them on the air and then bug out himself. Moody wanted no personnel left at the station, which was housed in a double-wide trailer. Alexander was able to stay on the air for about a half hour before the power cut out. At that point, we were starting to see the hangar building where some of the airplanes were being chewed up like a Pac-Man game, Alexander said. We saw airplanes starting to be pushed down the runway by the wind, and then tumble like a child throwing a toy. After that, it was blinding white rain. You could not see outside the window. There was a roar that I could not even adequately describe. People say its a freight train sound. I didnt get that. To me, it sounded like a Godzilla monster or something. It was a unique roar that I will never forget as long as I live. Inside the terminal, the floor began to move as the hurricane began sucking the pressure in the building up toward the roof. The only thing keeping the windows intact and the roof on was a series of metal shutters protecting the windows. Once the debris hit the building where we were, and hit the storm panel, Moody said. Everybody got away from the window pretty quick. You could hear a whine like a tuning fork, Alexander said. That was the sound from the bolts as they were being pulled out of the shutters. And we knew that if the shutters failed, the debris would take the window and pull the roof off and we were in serious trouble. For a minute or two, it was time to say some prayers and think about the worst. But they held, and we made it through until things started to calm down. After the event, a 10-minute trip back to the studio took an hour, as Alexander had to keep stopping the car to remove debris. It was a mess, obviously, Moody said. We thought if we could just get to U.S. 41 that it would be in better shape, because there was so much debris all over the road. Then when we got to 41, it was even worse there with the stop lights and wires all over the road. At the station, Alexander and Moody had to park a block away because of a downed power pole blocking the road. Windmill Village was just obliterated, Moody said. All the mobile homes were just blown up. Inside the studio, the roof was totally gone. But there was a generator, and the studio was intact. Within two hours of the storm passing, they were on the air. We stayed on the air, Alexander said. It got dark. The best thing we could do is tell everybody what Wayne wanted us to tell everybody. Theres no power. Everybodys in the same boat. Stay in your homes. Wayne was in contact with the emer gency folks, and help is on the way. The two were able to rig a phone to a fax line, Moody said, and were able to get it working. The board wasnt working, so they held the phone up to the microphone so people could talk about their experiences and what was going on in their communities. We stayed on all through the night, Alexander said, just took some breaks so we could give our voices a rest. It was eerie because there was no sound, no crickets; it was pitch dark. We were in shock and just acting on instinct. Residents who wandered to the radio station were put on the air, where they could share their stories. We never went off the air except for a two-hour period to do some FROM PAGE 39 SUN FILE PHOTOMike Moody talks on the phone following Hurricane Charley.

Around daybreak, I made the comment to Bob that I didnt know how much gas was in the generator and how long it would last, Moody said. About 45 minutes later, people started showing up with gas after he announced it on the air. Phone communication was spotty, so Wayne sent some ham radio guys, who set up a point-to-point on our front porch. They could send updates, tell people where water was being distributed or where to make insurance claims. It gave us such pride to see this little community come together like Ive never seen and help each other, Alexander said. Neighbor helped neighbor, and stranger helped stranger. Everywhere you went, people had booths set up and were handing out water and food. Alexander said there are people to this day who thank him for staying on the air that rst night, for being a voice of comfort among the chaos. They say, Yours is the voice that I heard, and it kept me from going crazy. It got me through that night. Thats the most gratifying thing Ive ever heard in 30 years in broadcasting. What a team we had at Clear Channel that pulled together to make it work and serve our community the way were supposed to. Alexander and Moody, who both became kind of modern-day community folk heroes, have since moved on to WINK in Fort Myers. But theres a rewarding coda to the ballad. In 2005, at the annual Governors Hurricane Conference, Clear Channel won the Media Award for hurricane coverage. That was so gratifying to all of us, Alexander said. That was kind of the happy ending to the whole saga.FROM PAGE 40Charlotte State Bank & Trust became something of an oasis in the aftermath of Hurricane Charley. Not only was it back online and open the morning after the storm, but also served as a place for law enforcement to stay since it had what nearly everyone else didnt have air conditioning. The main office in Murdock was open less than 24 hours after Charley hit. Don Martin, chief financial officer, pressed ahead with repairs to the other branches. There were repairs we had to make on the other offices, and arranged for portable generators to be brought in, Martin said. We brought them to opening ability as fast as we could. If staff members could not be reached by phone, managers drove to their homes to make sure they were OK. The drive-thru windows were the first to open. The lobbies opened about a week or so later, once the banks were more secure. They put up banners to let people know if the lobby was open, and if they needed a lobby to go to our other branch, Martin said. We also contacted the other banks to see if they were open, and we printed a list of those branches that were open. Charlotte State Bank & Trust made sure it was ready for another storm. In 2008, a 6,000-squarefoot Service & Support Center was built behind the Murdock office. It also built its fifth Charlotte County office, located in Charlotte Harbor. Maryann Mize, senior credit officer, testified in 2008 before Congress on the importance of disaster savings accounts for small businesses in emergency situations. Charlie Brown, then president of the bank, spoke to numerous organizations nationwide about disaster preparedness. But perhaps Martin said it best about the real reason the bank emerged the way it did. I think most banks were prepared for disaster recovery. Part of it was sheer luck, Martin said.

Page 42 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 For those of you still clinging to the illusion that youre living in a safe structure, nows the time to wise up, wrote nationally syndicated Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen days after Hurricane Charley cut a swath of destruction through Charlotte County and across Florida. Forget what the salesman told you, because theres no such thing as a safe mobile home. Every one of them is future storm debris, temporarily at rest. Shrapnel-in-waiting. Whether you agree with Hiaasens statement or not, theres little arguing that Charlotte Countys mobile home parks were among the hardest hit of all dwellings. Those in RVs who felt the wrath of Charley received varying degrees of damage. At Shell Creek Carefree Community in Punta Gorda, things werent so bad, according to Gene Williams, a resident who lived through the storm. Charley was his welcoming committee after having moved there only two months prior. About 40 of Shell Creeks residents rode out the storm in the parks clubhouse, which had been boarded up properly. Everything that could be secured, was in order to prevent an opportunity for flying debris. Although the park was hit, it was not catastrophic. Everybody had damage gutters, carports, siding but we only had to replace five units, Williams said. His own home suffered to the tune of $15,000. Residents got together and set up grills to feed themselves hot meals. Of particular concern was caring for those who were in their 90s. It was like a big primitive campground for about 10 days, Williams said. Shell Creek residents even had an opportunity for employment, he added, as the park owner paid able-bodied residents $10 an hour to clean debris a task that lasted until November. Punta Gordas Riverside Oaks Mobile Home Park also reported little damage. We didnt lose any homes, said current owner Mike Cook, just sheds, carports, awnings. There was no loss of life, no loss of homes. Were far enough inland, plus were surrounded by oak trees. I think that they were just enough to break the wind, although it took a few big oak trees down, actually. However, the cleanup did take six months. Parks such as Windmill Village in Punta Gorda did not fare as well. I wasnt here at the time, said manager Mary Lou Wilson, but I know it basically wiped out the entire community except for 30 homes and we have 454 lots here. They werent all built on at the time, but it was very severe. It took them two years to rebuild. The damage was really, really, really bad. One of the pluses is that the park now has a new $2 million clubhouse, as well as new and better-constructed homes because of code upgrades, Wilson said, adding that the park now looks amazing, thanks to Mobile home parks hit hard, rebuilt strongerBy BOB MASSEYSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN FILE PHOTOAll but 30 homes in Windmill Village, which has 454 lots, had to be rebuilt.Continued on page 43 50468734 License #CAC1817312 Call Dales NOW!!! 941-629-1712 FREE ESTIMATES ON REPLACEMENTS SALES SERVICE INSTALLATION P.0 Box 380029 Murdock, FL 33938 $25.00 OFF CHECK-UP FOR SUMMER COUPON Cannot be combined with any other offers.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 43 the improvements. We have been taking some classes on hurricane preparedness, so we have some plans for what should be done, she said. We lost 470 homes in here, said John Bradley, manager of Maple Leaf Golf & Country Club in Port Charlotte. They werent laid out, but 470 homes had to be replaced because of damage to them, or mold got inside when the roof got torn off. Maple Leaf was designated a county shelter at the time, and so the county actually brought in people from one of the motels in Punta Gorda, and people from Port Charlotte Village were brought in here, Bradley said. He estimated about 300 people took shelter in the parks two clubhouses when the storm hit. The roofs started separating in both of them. Work crews from North Carolina, the Miami area and a golf course crew from north of Tampa all pitched in for the cleanup effort which took until November, even with that kind of manpower. However homes still were being replaced over a twoyear period. Weve got a new stateof-the-art clubhouse that replaced one that was built in the 1970s, Bradley said, along with 400-plus new homes that enhance the community. We didnt have any injuries or deaths in here. The results were that it improved the community in the long run. One of the saving graces of Maple Leaf is that the majority of the residents are winter residents, so they missed being present for the storm. There were only about 200 people in the community out of 2,000 when the storm hit, Bradley said. With 80 percent being in Canada or New England or the upper Midwest, those people either didnt come down that season, or waited until they repaired or replaced their homes. So the winter season was kind of a slow season for the 2004-05 season, November through April. As bad as the experience was at Maple Leaf, Buttonwood Village in Punta Gorda was one of the worst-hit mobile home parks. We were ground zero, said Greg Pavlisin, one of the parks owners. It was like an explosion. We still havent recovered yet. Lost and still vacant are 100 lots, thanks to Charley and then the dip in the economy, he added. With mobile home parks like ours that lease the space we dont own it people left and are gone. The last three years have been a lot better, though. The economy is picking up a little bit. Pavlisin was at his home in Sarasota when Charley made landfall.

After you see my community or Windmill Village they were ground zero for the hurricane when it passed any sane person wouldnt want to be here. It was like a bomb. You want to ride that out there? Youve got a death wish. Pavlisins wife had been watching the progress of the storm on TV, he said, and informed him that Charley was turning into Charlotte Harbor. I knew we were in deep kimchi at that point, he said. We were watching our park being destroyed. And yet, here in Sarasota, it was a beautiful day. Unlike some other mobile home parks, Buttonwood didnt even lose one shingle on its clubhouse. But that was the only good news when it came to structural damage. When Pavlisin first entered the park on Saturday morning, he thought he had lost everything. It was literally like a war FROM PAGE 43What do you do when a force of nature wipes away everything you worked for? That was the question facing Diane Caputo when Hurricane Charley destroyed Montys Restaurant. She and her father had spent decades building the family business into one of Punta Gordas most popular restaurants. Montys is a perennial winner in Readers Choice awards. I was devastated as personally wiped out as the restaurant, she recalls. It was hard to tell our employees all our lives were changed forever and they were out of jobs. On top of that, her father had cancer and Diane needed to be there to help him. I agreed to let our longtime manager take over the restaurant in a building across from our old location. Unfortunately, he didnt take it in the right direction and the business suffered, she said. While some advised her to close the restaurant, she had one rm resolve: I couldnt let my baby die. Six years ago she took back the business, calling it Old Montys Restaurant and Pizzeria so people would know the old recipes so popular with the public were back. Her plan was to rebuild at the original location. But along came the economic recession that had banks refusing to lend money. Its been a rough six years, she admits. I was consumed with building issues, but I would plug away every day until I was ready to collapse. Finally, a local bank believed in her vision and agreed to nance her dream of a bigger and better Montys. I designed a much bigger restaurant, taking into consideration what everyone was asking for, she said. That meant getting a liquor license, adding indoor and outdoor seating, and including booths as well as space for groups. She especially worked to enlarge the menu with homemade specialty items, Storm success: Montys RestaurantBy PATTIE MIHALIKSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN FILE PHOTOCleanup eorts at Maple Leaf Golf & Country Club in Port Charlotte took several months.

I pay close attention to all the comment cards we receive and Im condent we have an expanded menu that offers something to please every taste, she said. But when staff rst opened the new restaurant a few months ago at its original 2515 Tamiami Trail location, Diane learned there were more problems she needed to solve. We restructured the staff, hired more people and brought back some of the original chefs we had before, she says. Listening to customer comments, she also changed the restaurants name back to Montys Restaurant and Pizzeria. Now, 10 years after Montys was derailed by the hurricane, it is rising to life again in a new and better version. The grand opening is set for today, the 10th anniver sary of the hurricane. This time, Diane says, the date will be a happy occasion.MONTYS FROM PAGE 44 Montys will celebrate its ocial grand reopening today. SUN PHOTOS BY PATTIE MIHALIKDiane Caputo stands ready to greet customers at the new Montys Restaurant and Pizzeria. Built at the site of the old restaurant wiped out by the hurricane, Montys will celebrate its grand opening, he said. You had to park your car. If you did venture in, you received four flat tires in about 40 feet. There were so many cars that tried to drive through, and all four tires were flat from numer ous holes not just one hole. There was so much debris and nails a lot of roofing nails and screws galore. Even three or four months after the hurricane, people were still getting screws and nails in their tires. You cant get them all, and you cant see them all. Small Business Administration loans helped to get Buttonwood back on its feet, Pavlisin said, by offering disaster loans. But what most impressed him was the generosity of strangers. The beauty of something like that is you see people youve never seen before and will never see again, and they come to you and say, How can I help? Day after day, people came in vans to help. Some were out of state. They brought rakes and shovels and wanted to know what they could do. Even though Buttonwood has not yet fully recovered, Pavlisin said he has no regrets. He credits his faith for helping him maintain a positive outlook. It is what it is, he said. Life throws you curves and you work with it. It could have been worse.MOBILE FROM PAGE 44 SUN FILE PHOTOButtonwood Village in Punta Gorda, one of the worst hit mobile home parks, has yet to fully recover from the storm. rf rfnt b n rfnttWe make it easy.fntfnbfLicense # AAA00101150 b rr rr rn n 457685 IBPS CHOIEq/ 2013DESIGN SINCE 1986Friendly Floors

Page 46 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Eric Stockley, HIV/AIDS prevention consultant with the Charlotte County Health Department, said he once suffered a heart attack where he had to be resuscitated four times after his heart stopped. And that was not as terrifying as his experience in riding out Hurricane Charley. On Aug. 12, 2004, the health department was preparing for the oncoming storm by moving its services to Pilgrim United Church of Christ on Rampart Boulevard in Port Charlotte, which was the designated shelter at that time. Looking back, there was an air of complacency, Stockley said. All of the indicators were that it was going up to Tampa, so the feeling was that this would be a good exercise. There was still the feeling that we were all going home tomorrow. The department set up cots and started moving in special needs residents those who are not bedridden, and dont need hospital or nursing care, but they are oxygenor electrical-apparatus dependent along with their caregivers. That night, they kept their roughly 130 charges occupied with activities such as bingo. At about 2 p.m. (Friday), the hurricane made a hard right, Stockley said. It was too late to move. What we realized was that we were in a Category 2 building, hunkering down with the potential that this could be a Category 4. We had EMS in there, representatives from the Sheriffs Ofce, and sat there to wait it out. Stockley said he had heard a hundred times that a hurricane sounds like a train but it didnt sound like that. Instead, it sounded like a jet engine. As bad as Charleys initial barrage was, the worst was yet to come. When we got to the eye, there was a deathly silence no birds, no trafc, no anything, Stockley recalled. It was bright sunlight and you thought it was over, with the exception of a huge pressure change. Your ears were like you had been on a jet ight you had to clear them. And then the second part of it came and thats when all hell let loose. The terracotta tiles from the roof of the church next door began a staccato assault that reminded Stockley of machine-gun re. Sections of the shelters roof started to peel away, and water began pouring in. This created a potential hazard, since there were electrical outlets in the oor being powered by an outside generator that couldnt be shut down just then. So were ankle-deep in water, and I thought we were going to die, Stockley said. Ive never been so frightened. When the wind stopped, we were just so glad to be alive. We were hugging each other. I took out my banjo and started playing Amazing Grace, and everyone started singing. It should have been a recipe for a catastrophe. You had to seriously question divine intervention. There was not a single injury. It was a long, wet night for all those in the shelter. At dusk, we opened some of the doors and saw where a mobile home park was just gone, Stockley said.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 47 like pretzels. And you realize the power of the wind did that. The siding of the homes were wrapped around the trees. This is the nearest thing to what I could think it would be like in a war zone. Help eventually arrived the next day. The shelter was evacuated to a safe environment with access to electricity. The health department ofce, then in Punta Gorda, fared even worse. The building inside was totally trashed, Stockley said. Water had gotten into the room with the medical records. There wasnt a record on the shelf they were all swimming in 2 feet of water. So we spent the following week getting them out of the water and putting them on tables and this was all in the dark. The records were like papier mache. A company came from Tampa and freeze-dried them then thawed them, which preserves the printing. You can still smell the ones that have been through the hurricane. Health department staffers started showing up even those who had lost their homes concerned about what they could do for the community. Stockleys RV, which he connected to a generator, served as a makeshift ofce. We knew where our clients lived who were, for instance, diabetics, so we made sure nobody missed their medications, he said. The health department did have one mobile unit that was still functional, as well as one from another county. The Red Cross was there within 48 hours so we had some food for the staff. We had some generators and some fans, and we operated like that for several weeks. We were running the HIV unit out of the bathroom. The health department ofce since since relocated to a new facility on Loveland Boulevard in Port Charlotte. Most records are electronic now. Hard copies are stored and secured in the center of the new building. New Day Christian Church on Peachland Boulevard in Port Charlotte is the new designated shelter, since it has been built to higher standards. If theres any possibility that a storm is going to be greater than a Category 2, were going to move our special needs out of the shelter, Stockley said. Therell be no more sitting it out in a Category 2 building. The plan now is evacuation. If its a Category 3 or higher, Charlotte County Emergency Management will dictate where the health department should relocate. They will nd a safe place for us to work.Fawcett Memorial HospitalStaff members at Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte were tracking the storm after having secured the campus as best as they could. They had also discharged as many patients as possible.

Page 48 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 CEO Tom Rice, and that included employees and their families and physicians families. Because of family members coming to the hospital, we had to open up child care for employees families, their kids. We set up our outpatient area as a child-care center. We also had employees say they werent coming to work unless they could take their pet, so we ended up having a small zoo to hold a variety of pets, including birds and a snake. Once Charley leveled its surprise right hook against Charlotte, there was no time to do anything but hope for the best. I dont think that we really had the time to evacuate in advance, Rice said. Even if we did, where would they go to? We chose to make the facility as strong as possible to protect everybody. The building held up fairly well against Charley, although wind did damage the roof, causing rain to enter the top oor of the four-story structure. However the emergency room remained operational even after the storm. The bottom three oors were pretty much operational immediately, Rice said. The top oor was out of commission for reconstruction for a year. After the storm, we did evacuate the entire building because we werent really sure if there was any major structural damage. Once we had it veried that we were OK, we opened for limited in patient services on Monday, and gradually built up from there. Since the event, Fawcett has installed a quick-connect circuit to ease the connection of an additional emergency generator, which would take the load off the hospitals existing emergency generator. Our own emergency generator wont last for a really long period, so a portable emergency generator is something we now have in place, Rice explained. In hindsight, Rice believes the hospital responded as best it could. Weve asked the question of whether we would have done anything differently over and over, he said. I think our emergency operation center that we set up in the hospital worked as well as could be expected.Bayfront Health Punta GordaThen called Charlotte Regional Medical Center, Bayfront Health Punta Gorda was in the direct ring line of Hurricane Charley. I was the patient safety ofcer at the time, Denise Barnett-Stuckey said. Fortunately, we had done a drill about ve weeks before that on a very similar event. So we had planned very well, thankfully. We were able to weather the storm very well. Thankfully, we didnt lose a patient or employee. That alone was signicant, considering the damage done to the hospital.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 49 apart, Barnett-Stuckey said. The damage was pretty catastrophic. We lost the roof off of our ICU. All our patients were moved to a central location on the second oor. We did a lateral and an internal upward move downward from the third oor because we didnt want them on the top oor and we didnt want them on the bottom oor. It was pretty quick, since we only had 45 minutes. Within minutes of the storms end, the hospital had an emergency treatment area in place in the cafeteria. By the next morning, a disaster medical assistance team (DMAT) unit also was set up in a virtual tent city. Within 36 hours, they were fully functional, Barnett-Stuckey said. We had a triage unit set up in our cafeteria within a couple of hours, because the ER took some signicant damage but the cafeteria didnt take as much, and we had beds and were ready to treat patients. With county Emergency Management compromised, the hospital team was able to apply their training. During our drill, we had planned to use alternative agencies, and we worked out of Sarasota until we could get our own agency back up and running, Barnett-Stuckey said. I think it went very smoothly, an amazing effort that the whole team pulled together. It was scary nonetheless, but you didnt realize the aftermath until everything was calm and all patients were placed in their appropriate facilities. All facilities came and took patients from us as part of our pre-plan. The hospital was completely closed for one week until the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers deemed it safe for occupancy. With the reconstruction, all the roofs have been reinforced and the windows are hurricane-proof. Im just thankful that, coming from New York, I paid attention to the drills and paid attention to all the education that was out there, Barnett-Stuckey said. I didnt take it for granted. I think its very important that when there is a drill and there is an opportunity to educate and protect yourself, that you do stock up on supplies and make sure youre prepared. FROM PAGE 48Today, Spago is a hybrid medi-spa located in a state-of-the-art building in downtown Punta Gorda, offering cosmetic surgery as well as massages. Ten years ago, it was a day spa when owner Caroline Thonon saw it go with the winds of Hurricane Charley at the location of her new business, Spa One, and the more than 20 employees she had at the time went with it. Her story became one that people heard around the world. The storm actually cut the roof off the building and landed on the building next to it, Thonon remembered. I decided not to rebuild something that was damaged, so I tore it down and xed the other building next to it. Many of her 21 employees had to leave Punta Gorda, with the rest cramming into the smaller building in hopes of saving Spago. The spa reopened four weeks after the storm, offering free massages to the visiting rst responders. It also provided food from River City Grill and the Turtle Club. The service people who were here were amazing. They worked in the heat and they would come in and give us water, since we had no air conditioning, Thonon said. When we reopened, I gave them massages. Soon, the media learned about Thonons spa. CNN featured Spago, as did the Today Show. Thonon said customers worldwide were calling and buying gift cards for people in the area, helping Spago get back on its feet. It took another year for Spago to completely recover, with the completion of a new building on the location of the one that was destroyed. Thonon sold Spago in 2006, which moved locations, and opened Spa One shortly thereafter. Looking back, she said, good came out of the bad storm. I told CNN that in the long run, this city may need to be rebuilt and become better than before, Thonon said. Now, thats all we hear. It allowed us to become a bigger, better and stronger Punta Gorda.Storm success: Local spaBy CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENT 50470728 Fenced Personal Gate Code 24/7 Access Surveillance Cameras Lighted Area Police Patrolled Covered Storage to 80 Dump Station Compacted Gravel Parking Area Covered Detailing Building Propane Electric Water Air Available r fnftb Charlotte RV Storage 150 Rio Villa Dr., Punta Gorda 941-575-7473 w w w C h a r l o t t e R V S t o r a g e c o m Discount Rates for Annual Renters Voted THE BEST RV & Boat Storage .. -r-z ,i:.a17MIoIb1P0O oGd40O P1JOo60[f

Page 50 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 CHARLOTTE COUNTY Jeff Houhoulis and Manny Miranda of Florida Power & Light remember Hurricane Charley as both a massive challenge and a useful learning experience. Houhoulis is an engineering lead with FPL, providing power to new commercial and residential buildings and road projects. Miranda is vice president of power delivery. Each gained valuable insights from the hurricane that helps him today, 10 years later. Houhoulis lives in Punta Gorda and lived through Hurricane Charley. After assessing the damage to his own home which included a smashed window, and shingles and tar paper blown off a portion of his roof he proceeded to call his crew together. We had a lot of wires pulled down, branches and debris everywhere, and we had to wait for the roads to get cleared, Houhoulis said. You couldnt drive northbound on U.S. 41 in Punta Gorda. You had to drive in the southbound lane. But my function was to gather my engineers and transform them into patrol personnel, per forming assessment of the damage. Hospitals were first on his list. All three local hospitals two in Port Charlotte and one in Punta Gorda were out of power. We had to wait on crews to arrive and put the wires and poles back up and get that section of line re-energized, Houhoulis said. That took one or two days. Next up was fire and rescue. Then sewer and water plants. These are the countys most critical customers, and we worked them in that order. Next was evaluating lateral and feeder lines. Laterals are the main power lines, such as those running down U.S. 41, while feeders extend out from them, like branches on a tree, into various neighborhoods and businesses. Houhoulis remembered the storm required massive amounts of material to repair the damage. For all of Charley, material-wise, it was over 900 miles of wire, over 7,000 poles and over 5,000 transformers were replaced, he said. This was not just for Punta Gorda, but Charley as a whole, as the storm crossed the state and exited through Daytona. Miranda was distribution director for FPL at the time Charley hit. His responsibilities lay in the restoration of FPLs power grid. Charley was a significant storm for us, as you know, Miranda said. It came in as a Category 4 storm, impacting the west coast of our territory. It was the strongest storm that hit us since Hurricane Andrew, a Category 5 hurricane, back in 1992. Almost 900,000 customers were affected by the storm throughout our entire service territory. In many cases, it wasnt just a matter of restoration, it was a matter of completely rebuilding our infrastructure in certain areas. Houhoulis and Miranda said it took FPL 13 days to restore Punta Gordas businesses and residents to a semblance of normalcy for their power needs. Both said the biggest lesson taken from Charley was in the mobilization of work crews and the creation of staging sites. Right now, we have secure agreements in place FPL workers recall, learn from CharleyBy STEVEN J. SMITHSENIOR CORRESPONDENT FPL IMPROVEMENTS SINCE THE 20042005 STORM SEASON: Strengthened more than 450 main power lines serving critical community facilities such as hospitals, police and fire stations and emergency communication systems. Cleared vegetation, which is a major cause of power outages, from more than 100,000 miles of power lines. Inspected more than 1 million power line poles, upgrading or replacing those that no longer meet standards for strength. Of those poles inspected, more than 82,400 distribu tion and 12,700 transmission poles and structures were replaced or upgraded from 2006 to 2013. Added flood monitors and storm-resistant doors and windows to more than 200 substations, mitigating the potential for flood damage caused by storm surge. Installed 4.6 million smart meters and other devices using cutting-edge technologies that help to reduce the number of outages and restore service faster when outages occur. SUN FILE PHOTOFlorida Power & Light ocials learned a lot since the 20042005 hurricane seasons, which damaged much of the state. Among the many improvements, FPL strengthened more than 450 main power lines, which serve critical community facilities such as hospitals, police and re stations and emergency communication systems.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 51 for assistance from other out-of-state utilities, in case they are needed, he said. We have backup supplies, equipment and plans for staging sites throughout all of our 35-county territory. The Town Center mall in Port Charlotte and the (Punta Gorda) Airport are two local staging sites, for example. And every year we try to acquire additional staging sites, because youve got to stage a lot of trucks, you have to have a lot of caterers, and you have to have a place for people to come and work out of, when youre hit like that. Miranda said another lesson learned from Charley was in providing good, accurate estimated time frames of power restoration to FPLs customers. We realized how critical it is to do this, he said. Also, all-inclusive training for our personnel. We do this for all of our folks, so theyre ready for any role that wed put them in after a storm. Miranda added that after Charley there were seven more storms that impacted FPLs service territory over the ensuing 18 months. We developed a series of initiatives one called Storm Secure to strengthen our infrastructure against the impact of future storms, he said. Weve invested close to $1.4 billion to make our grid more weather-resistant. This includes strengthening our power lines, increasing the amount of vegetation trimming that we do. We have a pole inspection program in which weve inspected every single pole that we own, and have either upgraded or replaced any of those that dont meet our strength requirements. Miranda added FPL supports targeted under ground facilities where the company and its community believe there is value for it. We learn from every storm, Houhoulis said. Every storm, you look for ways to get better and improve your preparedness. And we take lessons learned from our storms to help utility companies hit by other storms, such as Superstorm Sandy a couple of years ago.FROM PAGE 50 SUN FILE PHOTOA Florida Power & Light worker helps to restore power after Hurricane Charley. FPL had to replace more than 900 miles of wire, 7,000 poles and 5,000 transformers across the state due to damages caused by Charley. 50470751 O n November 6th 1992 Deans South of the Border opened for business in Punta Gorda Florida. Family ow ned and operated this little neighborhood steakhouse and lounge soon became a local favorite as well as a destination for tourists. The building had a long history dating back to 1907. The Juan Moore Lounge and the dining room were originally two separate buildings later joined by a kitchen. The lounge, complete with fireplace and locally h ewed beams was the home of Glover Marine Hardware circa 1907. The dining room housed the first American Legion in Punta Gorda. On August 12th we prepared the restaurant for the oncoming storm never dreaming what was ahead. On A ugust 13th we watched the storm approach as meteorologist Jim Reif warned of the oncoming danger. Power fa iled, we took refuge in an interior bathroom and listened to the storm pound on our front door and windows. When the storm passed it was time to assess the damage. Deans appeared to be a war zone, portions o f the roof peeled like an orange, the office demolished, furnishings torn apart and the kitchen a total loss. E mployees & friends arrived to check on each other and to salvage what we could from the wreckage. We were grateful to b e alive and unharmed, the impact of our loss was not yet a reality. Deans employed over 30 people including fri ends and family. With the loss of the building all these people would be without a paycheck. Over the next few days w e began to realize how devastating this storm was to so many people. Our priority was to get our employees back to work as quickly as possible. On August 30th with a ten item menu we reopened at our current location as Deans at Hurri cane Charleys. After the the immediate danger was over we assessed our situation, we expected to recover our damage d building, we expected insurance to to pay for the recovery, neither became a reality. The one story shoebox of a building was intended to be a temporary home however after sixteen months it was determined by FEMA that Deans w as too badly damaged to be repaired. The old building was demolished in 2005 and renovations on the new space beg an the same year, the Cantina was finished in 2007. We added a total of 2300 square feet to the interior and ano ther 2500 of courtyard. We also increased seating from 95 to 250. Deans South of the Border officially had a ne w home, and the Hurricane Charleys name was retired. Dean was able to save the original Juan Moore fireplace and beams which can be seen in the Pergola. Inside the main dining room decorative lizards climb the back wall, rescued fro m the demolition where they once greeted customers by the front door. Weve learned so much from this experience. Our community is stronger and more beautiful than ever, our friendships cemented by a common thread. There were days when we hope, days we didnt believe we cou ld survive but not only did we survive we thrived. When it came time to name Hurricane Charley our newest endeavor we knew without hesitation it would be for the storm which shaped our future and the future of our city. Were more respectful, more vigilant, more grateful and we will never forget the power and devastation of a storm such as Charle y. Deans South of the Border officially had a new home and the name Hurricane Charley was retired. >deuLefvJt4viy

Page 52 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 About an hour before Hurricane Charley ripped through the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce administration building in Punta Gorda, Capt. Sherman Robinson a district commander at the time remembers taking the countys 911 dispatchers to set up shop at the Charlotte County Jail. We ran the entire show over there, Robinson recalled of the jury-rigged setup. And the phones never stopped ringing with 911 calls. People were calling from up North asking if we could go check on their family. We had to be like, Uh, maam, were in the middle of a hurricane. Relocating staff and handling a bombardment of nonemergency calls are just a couple obstacles that had to be hurdled by local law enforcement and rescue personnel so they could begin reducing panic around town. As soon as the storm passed and we could go out to the 911 calls, several of the re stations literally had to dig their trucks out of the debris, said current Charlotte County Public Safety Director Chief Marianne Taylor. The deputy chief of re/ EMS training at the time, Taylor rode out the storm at Station 12 in Deep Creek. We lost the roof, she remembers. And when the roof came up, debris and glass from the garage doors ew in and busted out the windshields of the retrucks. So the crews had to not only dig the debris off, but they had to clean glass out of the trucks before going to answer calls with no windshields. It was amazing. At the Punta Gorda Police Department across town, Chief Albert Butch Arenal who was assistant chief at the time remembers Charley tearing tiles from the roof and hurling them at the PGPDs eet. When this building was constructed, there was concrete barrel tiles on the roof because they wanted it to have the look of Punta Gorda, he said. What we ultimately learned is that concrete barrel tiles on an emergency operations center is not very functional. They became projectiles. Arenal said the patrol cars took a beating because there was nowhere to bunker them in case of a bad storm, like there is now. (The police station also has since gone to a metal roof).

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 53 there are other little issues involved with running a public safety department that arent talked about much like trying to preserve computers by covering them with trash bags, and ensuring fuel is available to run the vehicles that are still operable after the storm. Theres a lot, Briggs said. Charleys wrath plowed right through Arcadia too. Maj. James Vitali, the current chief deputy at the DeSoto County Sheriffs Office, recalls some unexpected problems the agency had to help resolve. (The hurricane) was supposed to hit the Clearwater area, he said. So we only had about a 45-minute time frame to brace ourselves. The Turner Agri-Civic Center in Arcadia was declared a shelter, but it didnt completely hold up during the storm. There was roof failure and water poured in, Vitali said. So once it cleared up enough, we had to clear a path for buses to get out there and start transporting people to the high school. After Charley, agencies from around the state flocked to the Punta Gorda area to help their law enforcement or fire and rescue brothers and sisters. They helped with tasks like checking on and repairing houses for local officials who were on duty. Some were dedicated solely to changing tires for all the vehicles that ran over debris. Others assisted with road patrol. We couldnt have done without them, Robinson said. So many agencies helped without us even asking. We hadnt even got our feet under us to ask for help, and people were here. But with the influx of assistance came added tasks for local law enforcement. We learned a lot about logistics, Arenal said. For example, you dont realize the scope of feeding people who are emergency workers. However several local restaurants stepped up and helped with that. Arenal recalls Hooters swinging by, for example, and Robinson remembers Outback coming in and grilling steaks. Support from locals and elsewhere in all capacities would be the key to a successful recovery. Ofcials are grateful for the help. I personally think we are the poster child for a good recovery story, Briggs said. So many similar recovery efforts dont work out as well as it did here.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comFROM PAGE 52 PHOTO PROVIDEDThe countys 911 communications section set up operations in a hallway at the Charlotte County Jail during the storm.

Page 54 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Like modern-day Irish folklore, most know the story of the Celtic Ray and how it didnt close not even in the eye of a nasty storm named Charley. There were other storms though that could have shuttered The Ray, as some longtime patrons call it. Some of those storms had names like Frances and Jeanne. They were the kind that could be tracked on a radar, like Charley. Then there was another kind of storm the kind that hovers over you, blocking the sun, leaving you to wonder if everything will ever be OK again. But lets back up and start at the beginning, because thats how legendary tales are told.Once upon a time Charlotte County wasnt a beer-lovers playground. Well-known domestic beers could be found easily, but in 1997, Kevin Doyle found something missing in Punta Gorda. At the time, there wasnt a single establishment in the area that offered a variety of quality imported beers and the atmosphere of a traditional Irish Pub, his website states. And so, Doyle opened the Celtic Ray at the corner of Nesbit Street and East Marion Avenue, near the Charlotte County Justice Center a perfect spot for stressed-out staffers seeking happy hour. He poured quality imported beers, which meant mocking anyone who ordered a (fill-in-the-blank domestic beer). He served fish and chips undeniably, outstanding fish and chips. He offered you comfort, which sounds cheesy, but it truly became a place where anyone and everyone could feel comfortable. The Celtic Ray, rather The Ray, became the place to be on St. Patricks Day. Kevin and his son, Max, began bringing in musicians. That kind of evolved, Kevin said. At first, it was, Lets be the place everyone can come here and feel comfortable. Lets focus on locals. Then, people started hearing about the Punta Gorda pub. They started driving from Sarasota, Bradenton, Tampa and even Miami. During season, snowbirds became regulars. Smoking had been allowed in the pub before the states constitutional amendment passed, banning it from certain food-serving establishments. Shortly thereafter, the Doyles split the bar into two sides: the nonsmoking, food-serving Celtic Ray (the original side closest to Nesbit) and the nonfood, smoking-allowed Temple Bar (now the side with the stage). That decision likely saved The Ray.There was a storm Max Doyle thought he was in the path of a hurricane in August 2004. I was in Tampa, he said. I heard the storm was going to Tampa, so I came here. They placed sandbags at the doors, and did what you do when youre in a pub as a hurricane approaches.Storm success: Celtic Ray weathers it allBy CHRISTY FEINBERGSENIOR WRITER SUN PHOTO BY CHRISTY FEINBERGKevin and Max Doyle enjoy a pint of Guinness outside their pub, The Celtic Ray.Continued on page 55 50468873 MVMMWC0\\ iIsiso#sUMMM a caa7M lxLctrst %: C'C) IQuality, value & service are more than justwords to the owners and employees of Four Seasons Air,it's the way we do busines before, during and after a storm.F2c:rnc:nibr_r. only u.-:a_ lu on-a_U anU uisuruUrepair contractors for all your home repairs!941-206-6131 www.4SeasonsAC.comA.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 55 We were playing darts and had beer, Max said. None of us were really scared at that point. Because the Doyles built an authentic Irish pub, that meant no TVs. So they watched the storms track on a computer. Soon, Charleys fierce winds began to beat up on the pub and surrounding buildings. It was terrifying, Kevin said. We were drinking beer like we were going to die. When the winds calmed, the Doyles saw the heavy damage to the Temple Bar. We thought the building was completely gone, Kevin said. They realized that decision to put up a wall between the two bars likely saved the original side. The next day, after moving some debris, the Doyles began giving away beer. There was no power and no water, but they still had a phone line. Like any local, friendly pub, they allowed customers to use their phone. There was a line of people going all the way down the street, Kevin said. This was like the community center, Max said. We just handed beer out to everyone, Kevin said. Due to the amount of damage, the Doyles faced losing the Temple Bar side to demolition. Kevin called a member of the City Council, who helped to get the building included in the citys Historic District, Kevin said. That made it more difficult for the owners to demolish the building, and ultimately Kevin agreed to buy it for $725,000. A year later, it was worth about $430,000, Kevin said. Thats when we started to get in trouble.Followed by more darkness ...At first, the Doyles found creative ways to make money. Storm chasers near the pub made a DVD of Hurricane Charley. They sold 8,000 copies for an $8-per-disc profit, which put the roof on and fixed the back wall, Kevin said. They also sold T-shirts and hats, specifically stating they never closed. But many people were too busy putting their lives back together to pause for pints. And then the economy began to slow down. We werent making enough money to get by or fix anything, Kevin said. In October 2006, the Doyles transferred ownership. We sold it to keep the bar open, Kevin said. As sometimes happens in business transactions, there appeared to be no happy ending for the Doyles. They were kicked to the curb, they said, in November 2007. These were, in many ways, darker days for the Doyles than after Charley.

Page 56 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 One incident even escalated to violence, leaving Kevin with missing teeth. I still havent replaced them, he said. The Celtic Ray took on a different feel during this time. Without the Doyles, The Ray didnt have the special vinegar known to make the fish and chips that much tastier. The new owners put ketchup on the tables, and domestic beer back on tap. Mostly, the missing barman and his son are what made it different. And then the clouds cleared ...The strong, feisty Irishman may have been literally knocked down, but he kept getting back up. It took us a couple of years, Kevin said. I took it back in foreclosure Feb. 3, 2010. We had to break in with a detective from the Punta Gorda Police Department. Kevin went straight to the taps, returning to an import/craft-beer-only establishment that separated it from other bars when it first opened in 1997. The Celtic Ray was back. The Doyles slowly renovated the Temple Bar side wiped out by Charley. But instead of two bars, it became one large pub. On March 14, 2012, the Celtic Ray officially reopened the new side, which includes beautiful windows, a stage and a stunning second floor where patrons can watch the band performing downstairs via projection screen. That St. Patricks Day was a special, jam-packed one a holiday that continues to draw thousands each year. This years holiday was the biggest, Kevin said, and it fell on a Monday. They served 11,340 imperial pints. Longtime favorite musicians/bands Paul Duffy, Celtic Clan, Flurgin, Brigids Cross and Marcia continue to bring in crowds. Newer regulars include The Crestliners and The Wholetones, who will perform tonight at the pubs Hurricane Charley 10-year Survival Party. And The Ray offers comedy nights and themed nights, such as the 1980s prom night. The Celtic Rays unlikely success story continues, even during the slow summer months. It serves, on average, 180-200 pounds of Icelandic cod a week. To this day, I dont take anything for granted, Max said. Im still surprised. I never thought wed get back in this building. Youre still in some level of disbelief, arent you? Kevin asked. Yeah its kind of meant to be.Email: cfeinberg@sun-herald.comFROM PAGE 55 SUN PHOTO BY CHRISTY FEINBERGMax and Kevin Doyle enjoy a pint while sitting in the pub, The Celtic Ray, which weathered many storms since Hurricane Charley 10 years ago.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 57 At a time when it was needed not necessarily as a place to catch a play or to play card games, the Cultural Center of Charlotte County in Port Charlotte served a crucial function in the lives of those who were affected by Hurricane Charley. It was an emergency shelter. It also became a place for insurance companies to set up shop so victims could file their claims, in addition to other services. Jim Hageman, executive director of the Cultural Center, took over shortly after Charley hit. He said the center had been renovated some years before the storm and had to be fixed up again. We put in the confer ence center in 2000, and it was built to withstand a Category 3 hurricane, and Charley was a Category 4, Hageman said. That held up OK, but other areas didnt.

Page 58 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Cultural Centers board when Charley hit. It was sad we had finished the renovation and when Charley hit, there was water everywhere. Everything was wet, the ceiling was falling down. The theater was ruined, Powell said. Thankfully, there wasnt much physical damage, but it was water damage. Hageman said what saved the center is the fact that there have been 13 or 14 expansions, meaning many outside walls on the sprawling campus. The problem was the roof, and thats where a lot of the damage was, Hageman said. That we were spread out and didnt have just one building served us well. Powell remembered that since the Cultural Center was a designated shelter, many people were sent there after the storm. But that didnt last long. The bathrooms didnt work, so they brought in 30 (portable bathrooms), but they came because they had no place to go, Powell said. It got so bad that the health department had to shut it down. Powell said huge trailers were brought in to pump air into the building to dry things out. Dehumidifiers were also in place, which worked until someone opened a door. Making things more complicated was that since the Cultural Center is a nonprofit, and since the county owned the building, all the repairs had to go through the county, Hageman said, which turned out to be a good thing in the long run. There were some things that could have moved faster, but they were very cooperative in helping us get back on our feet, Hageman said. In the meantime, FEMA, the Red Cross and insur ance companies set up shop there to handle claims. Even the re department, which lost its building, parked its trucks there. Following the storm, Hageman said the main thing was to keep as many of its programs going as possible. Many people depend on the center every day, including volunteers. Thats how the center has evolved over the years. If we had a need in the community, we found a way to satisfy that need, Hageman said. As soon as we cleaned up a building, wed reopen it. The biggest thing we had was the school, and we got those going quick. It wasnt really until the end of the year before operations truly got back to normal. FROM PAGE 57Brothers Brian and Bruce Midolo were looking to buy a business. With their experience in construction Brians in the sales and nance side, and Bruces in the operations side it made sense for them to purchase Marine Contracting Group in Punta Gorda. Their rst day of ofcial business was Jan. 1, 2004 and their rst year would be both a challenge and a windfall, thanks to Hurricane Charley. MCG which had been in operation since 1992 is a full-service turnkey provider, specializing in all aspects of marine construction. The companys project locations extend from Southwest Florida to the Atlantic Coast, and from the Florida Keys to the Florida Panhandle. The company maintains a varied client base that includes municipalities, marinas, yacht clubs, condominium associations, private residents and local businesses. But in August 2004, the direction of their business would change. MCG already had one contract with the city of Punta Gorda to work on its sea walls. But Hurricane Charley was on the way. We moved our equipment up into the safe harbor areas as much as we could, and tethered it and anchored it, Brian said. The real concern is if your barges or boats would oat up onto a property, and then when the tide went out, they would be sitting on land. I think storm surge is the real danger, and we were lucky with Charley. We tried to position the equipment so that it could handle a 10-, 20-foot surge and be able to stay stable.Canal clearing takes yearsBy BOB MASSEYSUN CORRESPONDENT Continued on page 59 WOTITZKY,WOTITZKY,ROSS&McKINLEY, P.A.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 59 After the storm, MCG was called on to remove debris from miles of the citys canals a project that would eat up about three years. For us, it was a good transition, Brian said. We never stopped doing the sea wall. The city kept the contracts going. It was good for the city and for us. At the same time, there were some emergency contracts for cleanup in the canals. We used that same equipment. The real challenge was to make sure we had the equipment and the manpower to continue with those tasks. There was a real navigation issue. There was another problem too. MCG had moved into its new ofces not two months before Charley introduced himself to Charlotte County. As a housewarming gift, the storm destroyed the house or, in this case, MCGs ofces. Our biggest challenge was to recover physically from the hurricane and the destruction of our workplace, Brian said. The equipment fared relatively well. The barges oat, so they go up and down with the tide. We didnt have a tidal surge that was the good news. So the heavy equipment made it through relatively unscathed. The biggest challenge was to get back to running an ofce the logistics, phone systems. We operated out of a trailer in our construction yard. We set up the trailer, got power to it, put in PortaJohns. We did that for just about a year and a half, two years until the ofce building were currently in was rebuilt, and we were able to lease space. MCG never stopped working. So the Monday after the hurricane, we were working for the city on our city contracts. Within 30 days, those contracts were used to create emergency work for the cleanup of the canal. And that went very, very swiftly. MCG partnered with FEMA and other emergency agencies to perform the cleanup.

Page 60 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 In the darkest, powerless hours, when heat smothered us like a blanket, when the shrill beeps of dying computer batteries replaced the choir of crickets, and when the smell of thrashed, chopped timber lingered in the windless air, the weirdness emerged. These were the eyebrow-raising, strange moments that somehow stabilized us and reminded us that all would be right in the weird world of Florida. Punta Gorda Isles residents may remember the unusual visitor in their neighborhood a few days after Charley. A black bear was found on Via Milanese. Animal experts found him, tranquilized him and transported him to a bear habitat. It is on par with every thing that has happened, Sgt. Keith Hudson, of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, said at the time. Another black bear recently was spotted in downtown Punta Gorda. Perhaps the bear had been planning to make a 10-year reunion appearance, but arrived in town too early because well hes a bear. What were you expecting, a bear named Yogi who can talk and tell time? Speaking of animals (insert late-night talk show rimshot here) 2004 was an election year, and politicians also were wandering around neighborhoods. It was a presidential year as well, making it all the more bizarre in the state that impregnated chads in 2000. The president is expected in the aftermath of a hur ricane. So when President Bush visited, it was kind of normal if theres ever such a thing when you see or meet any president. What seemed weird, however, was when Bushs Democratic opponent, then-Sen. John Kerry, arrived. He was in a difcult situation: Kerry could be seen as politicking in a disaster zone if he toured the area, and he could be seen as ignoring those in need if he didnt visit while campaigning in the battleground state. So with his host, Sen. Bill Nelson, to make it seem more appropriate, the two zipped through town and spoke to a few residents in the Punta Gorda area. Now, 10 years later, it seems weird to have photos of Secretary of State John Kerry shaking hands with Emergency Management Director Wayne Sallade. When Charley hit in 2004, it was the rst time Florida had been devastated by a major hurricane since Andrew in 1992. It also was the rst of four storms to hit that year, which meant that Charlotte County topped the national news for several weeks until Frances, Ivan and Jeanne struck the state. An Aug. 27 Sun article revealed there were 1.53 million hits for the words Hurricane Charley on Yahoo! The article states: On eBay, a North Carolina resident is selling Hurricane Charley in a Bottle, which supposedly offers a vial of water taken during the storm. It even comes with a letter of certication, though who certied its authenticity is unknown. Hurricane Charley in a bottle. Id like to meet the person who bought that. I may have some air from the Mayower he/she might be interested in purchasing. Three elementary school teachers Sue Townsend, Peggy Caruso and Julie Cronin used actual Charley debris to create Christmas ornaments that year. The hurricane survivor ornaments contained bits and pieces of items like shingles, softs, screening, tape measures, pink insulation, mobile home aluminum, blue tarps, broken tree twigs, an AAA battery, glass, tin roofs and construction sand, a Sun article states. People see them and laugh, Townsend said. We need to start laughing about it. People are so sick and tired of seeing this stuff on the streets. Blue Christmas, after all, took on a new meaning that year, when Santa landed on blue tarp-covered roofs.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Page 61 state and federal authorities on funding and project approach, Brian said. From a construction point of view, it made us look more at logistics how the work gets done, whats needed in the community for access, and those kinds of things. Some of those were still talking about today. As busy as MCG became, it did suffer some business losses. The day before the storm, we had signed a contract to redo what was then the Holiday Inn marina, which is now the Four Points, (by Sheraton Punta Gorda Harborside) where the T iki bar is, Midolo said. They had a permit to do all those docks at the time, and the small marina there. We had a contract to do the larger wave break marina that went around the small marina. We had signed that contract and even bought materials all the steel piling was bought and stored on-site. The storm came through and that building collapsed, so that whole deal fell apart. Still, Midolo feels that MCG beneted in the long run. Charley, for us, conrmed that we have to be prepared, he concluded. I was out of town at the time, but my brother and my partner was here, my wife was here. We would denitely leave next time. MCG has a plan as a company. Youve got to tie stuff down, put it in safe harbor. And youve got to take that plan out every hurricane season, dust it off and look at it, and make sure your foremen and your super intendents and your boat captains are thinking about that anytime a low pressure system can turn into a hurricane it doesnt have to come from Africa.FROM PAGE 59While it may not be the way most business owners would want to see a boost in business, some did benet in the aftermath of Hurricane Charley. Quality TV, in North Port, was among them, as many cable TV customers switched to satellite rather than wait to get their service back. Mike Morales, owner of Quality TV, said many of their customers made the switch. In a hurricane, satellite doesnt have time to sit and block the signal, so you can have brief interruptions, but you dont lose it totally, Morales said. When the lines went down, people were out for ve, six months. Morales said his company, which suffered little to no damage in the storm, was putting in satellites on homes with no roofs. The dish would be in the middle of the house with a gener ator, which you couldnt do with cable. Morales said his store was busy after the storm, as some dishes got bent, misaligned or hit with debris. The satellite company, Dish Network, also stepped up by offering new dishes and systems for $15. We did a lot of new business as a result of the knowledge that you either go with this or wait (for cable), Morales said. People arent going to wait for TV, so we picked up a lot of new accounts. Today, as the technology has improved, Morales said the overall product has improved, and that more people are going the satellite route. People think you wouldnt want one in a storm, but you would. Some people dont understand that, Morales said.Storm success: Quality TVBy CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN FILE PHOTO Marine Contracting Group spent about three years cleaning the canals of Punta Gorda.

Page 62 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 A natural disaster can make or break a political career. On one end of the spectrum: Chicago Mayor Michael Bilandic, who was seen as an ineffective leader after a blizzard in 1979 crippled the city. On the other end: Gov. Jeb Bush, who effortlessly managed for months in a crisis mode after four hurricanes pounded the state in 2004. It didnt stop there for Bush. Then, of course, there was the wild 2005 season, in which there were so many storms the National Hurricane Center ran out of assigned names and turned to the Greek alphabet, making Hurricane Epsilon and Tropical Storm Zeta sound like bad Animal House parties planned by Bluto. It was an incredible, incredible experience, Bush said. Former Gov. Bush recently spoke to the Sun about those two stressful hurricane seasons, but especially 2004 and Hurricane Charley. Personal connectionsThere is never a good time or place for a hurricane, which, of course, is stating the obvious. Its difcult to say to those who remember the spray-painted Xs on houses: There could have been a worse time. Its difcult to say to those who remember grass and leaves coating most surfaces: There could have been a worse place. Its difcult, but its true. Charley was the rst major hurricane to strike Florida since 1992s Hurricane Andrew, which resulted in better building codes, along with quicker responses from the private and public sectors. But Andrew personally affected Bush, who then rode out the storm with his family in South Florida. That sticks with you a storm like that, said Bush, now 61. That was a Category 5 storm. When Charley hit that Friday the 13th in 2004, Bush arrived the following day. It brought back surreal and vivid memories of Andrew, Bush said Aug. 14, 2004. We will rebuild a beautiful part of the state from what can only be described as complete devastation and tragedy. People who are waiting for the cavalry to arrive the cavalry is here. Unlike some of Floridas governors, Bush also had rsthand knowledge of the area. He and his family have been vacationing in Boca Grande for years. And, in case some need a reminder, it only beneted Charlotte County that Bushs brother occupied the White House at the time making for smooth state and federal relations. By that Sunday morning, both brothers literally were walking the streets of Punta Gorda. I thought it was pretty interesting that the president and governor would come and talk to us, Punta Gorda resident Russell Lee said in 2004. They really acted concerned. There were the personal Andrew and Boca Grande connections for Bush, and then there are Charlotte Countys residents a population that has been politically supportive of Bush, but thats not what he mentioned when talking about Charley and its survivors.

For sure, people that have gone through the Depression as children, served in World War II, dont have a whiny kind of attitude about life thats for sure, said Bush, whose own father, President George H.W. Bush, ew 58 combat missions in World War II and received the Distinguished Flying Cross for bravery in action. Bush recalled meeting many senior residents at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, which had been serving as a shelter. There were such beautiful people there, he said. Charley was the rst of four hurricanes to hit Florida that year. The next year brought more storms, most of which were dwarfed by Katrinas natural and political catastrophes. It made the Aug. 13, 2004, storm unique in its timing: rst since Andrew, rst of the storms, pre-Katrina, during the Bush-Bush era and pre-recession. Its location also made it special: a community known by the governor and rst family, and anchored by residents who understood hardship and perseverance. The place that in all honesty had such a caring nature of the community was Punta Gorda, he said. It was a phenomenal effort of recovery by so many people.Success storiesNo other governor has endured what Bush did during FROM PAGE 62 SUN FILE PHOTOGov.

Haley Barbour and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie both reached out to Bush for advice following disasters in their respective states. You cant expect perfection in a chaotic situation, Bush said. Charley was no exception. Was it perfect? No. But with great local leadership you can work through big disasters, he said. Kudos to Charlotte County and its leadership. He stressed that successful emergency response is locally driven and state supported. Little Charlotte County is a good example of how that works, he said. Bush became a frequent visitor to Charlotte County after Charley. The reason Im here today is to re-emphasize the fact that youre not put in the back of the line, Bush told county ofcials after Hurricane Frances. Among his other stops in the months following Charley: He helped distributed Small Business Administration checks, visited local schools, and attend ed a service at First Baptist Church of Port Charlotte. One of Bushs favorite memories was returning to Charlotte County that October for pivotal post-Charley events one of those moments in which life began returning to normal. It was the CharlottePort Charlotte high school football game. Friday night football, back under the lights at Tarpons Stadium.
