THE WIRE PAGE 3Charlotte SunAND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000More credit agencies than Big 3READER ADVOCATE David MORRISCOLUMNISTBill Tursellino never lived in Colorado. For the last 35 years, hes been here in Port Charlotte. So imagine his sur prise when he got a letter informing him under Colorado law, he was being notied that negative information was added to his National Consumer Telecom & Utilities Exchange (NCTUE) le.The letter explained NCTUE is a credit reporting agency. Calling a toll-free number, hed get a free disclosure copy of his le. But when Bill called, automated instructions told him he rst had to enter his Social Security number. He understandably became wary and hung up. We are not having any problems with any utility company, he wrote me. Is this a legit outt? Most of us are familiar with the three major national credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. But there are at least 40 other specialty credit reporting agencies that focus on specic industries like telecom munications, utilities, homeowners or auto insurance, employment background checks and rental housing. Normally, their information isnt led with the major credit bureaus. NCTUE a little known name is one of them. It's huge. Members include some 70 companies that provide cable and satellite TV, Internet, local, long-distance and wire less phone service as well as water, gas and electric utilities to over 330 million customers nationwide. They exchange information about a consumers payment history and unpaid closed accounts. A NCTUE member may use this informa tion to decide whether to offer you services, explains the national Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which oversees CRAs. It may also use this information to decide whether to require you to pay a deposit before receiving services. So, for example, if you didnt pay an early cancellation fee to your satellite TV provider when you moved, there might be a large deposit required when opening electric service at your new location. Or, if you want to rent an apartment or home, another CRA like RealPage with the industrys largest rental payment history database can deny your application. Even if approved, it can determine whether you qualify for a higher-priced unit. Bill got his letter because a unique Colorado law requires a notice be sent to all listed account holders when any negative information is led. But for us in Florida, and the rest of the country, federal law only requires notication when an adverse action is taken based on information in a report. Otherwise, you have no idea whats on le with any of these specialty CRAs. Thats why I suggested Bill request his free NCTUE le. If its incorrect, he can dispute it with NCTUE. If hes not happy with the resolve, he can complain to the CFPB at www. consumernance.gov or call 855-411-2372. You have the right to know what information specialty consumer-reporting companies are collecting about you. The CFPB requires them to provide, at minimum, a toll-free number to order your le. Its normal to require your Social Security number. For more information on these specialty CRAs, including how to request your le dis closure from each, go to www.privacyrights. org and search for other consumer specialty reports.

PUNTA GORDA After just three hours of deliber ation Thursday afternoon, the jury in the compensatory phase of the Rotonda II sewer trial handed plaintiffs a $3.26 million award from Charlotte County prompting the county side of the courtroom to break out in celebration. If there is any confusion as to why they were smiling, some perspective may help. During the liability portion of the trial, which the county lost, plaintiffs sought $60 million in damages for the countys failure to provide water and sewer service to 1,008 lots in Rotonda Villas, thereby preventing their use. In the jury trial to determine the amount of compensation to be paid, the plaintiffs asked for $33 million. This is a great victory for Charlotte County, the countys attorney W. Cort Frohlich said following the reading of the verdict at the Charlotte County Justice Center. The breakdown of the nancial judgment to the plaintiffs Andress Family Florida, Rotonda West Estates LLC and the Cape Cave Corp. and the three principals in the suit is as follows: Noel Andress, with 74 lots, received $261,013; Fred B ilowit, with 413 lots, is owed $1.43 million; and Gary Littlestar, with 521 lots, was Sewer tally: $3MBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERCounty minimizes Rotonda II damageSEWER | 10 Drivers traveling along Tamiami Trail in northern Port Charlotte eventually could enjoy a smoother, less-congested ride. Florida Gov. Rick Scott has given the green light to a $32.7 million widening project for U.S. 41 in the area just north of Murdock. The heavily traveled highway will be widened from two to three lanes in each direction, from Enterprise Drive north to the Sarasota County (and North Port) line around the Cornelius/ Cranberry boulevard intersection. Also, U.S. 41 will be repaved along the roughly 4-mile stretch. Construction is expected to begin sometime next year. A start date hasnt been set, and its unknown how long the undertaking would last. We had that segment in development and worked through design, but we didnt have money for construction, Florida Department of Transportation spokeswoman Debbie Tower said. Now we can move this project along. And that is clearly an important north-south corridor for both Sarasota and Charlotte residents. The governor on Thursday announced the total advancement of $806.7 million for six major transportation projects around the state. Charlotte County Public Works Director Dan Quick was glad to hear the local project was on the list. We had been aware this would be coming for a few years, but we didnt know when, Quick said. Were most anxious and really looking forward to it.

U.S. Army Sgt. Ommy Irazarry, 36, an Iraq War veteran, and his 9-year-old daughter, Oceana, died when the Piper aircraft hit them while they were swimming in 4 feet of water July 27 on the mostly deserted stretch of beach, the report shows. The pilot, Karl Kokomoor of Englewood, told authorities he never saw the victims. He declared an emergency on the planes radio after taking off from Buchan Airport in Englewood only 10 to 15 minutes earlier.Faced with a forced landing, Kokomoor, 57, told Report: No obvious mechanical failure in Venice plane crashBy GREG GILESSTAFF WRITER FILE PROVIDEDA law enforcement ocer walks by the crashed plane on Caspersen Beach July 27, as a Venice Police boat sits in the background.

At least a dozen reghters have signed up to be in the Englewood Fireghters Benevolent Associations rst ever calendar. With help from local advertisers, 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Englewood Fireghters Benevolent Association, said 18-year reghter Jim Laurie of the Englewood Fire District. We use the money to help reghters in need. For example, a few months ago we gave money to the North Port reghter Christina Doyle to help with bills from her leukemia treatments. Like the two Charlotte County reghters calendars, photographer Chad Dion of Dion Photography in Englewood will be shooting the Englewood crew. The Charlotte County Fire Benevolent Fund did a 2014 calendar with proceeds going to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The Englewood reghters have picked several locations for photos, including on a boat. There will be group shots from each of the six stations in Englewood. We will be doing a few where we use a green screen to create ames so it looks like they are in the middle of a re, Dion said. We will do other special effects as well. The reghters in Englewood liked the calendars Ive done in Port Charlotte so much that they wanted to do their own. After he has photographed the reghters, Dion said he will wait for the 1,000 calendars to be delivered to him. The reghters will pick them up and distribute them. Dion believes it will be easy working with the Englewood reghters. These guys are good friends, he said. You put them in a room and tell them to have a good time. They turn into 15-year-old boys. It makes it easy to take the photos. Laurie agreed. Some of our reghters will be featured on their own page so they are working out to get ready for the pictures, he said. We start shooting next week. Laurie said the 13-month calendars which will sell for $10 each, should be ready by October. They will be selling them at area businesses that welcome them. We will be having signings with remen at the Englewood Events Center, Laurie said. We also want to have a booth on Halloween along Dearborn Street. To offset printing costs, local businesses have advertisers including attorney Lori Wellbaum Emery, Englewood Ford, Marine Dynamics, Englewood Event Center, 1440 Fitness, Adirondack Air, Classic Creations, Key Agency, Yum Yum Bakery and Surfside Realty. We made sure we only asked one of the same business to advertise in the calendar, Laurie said. We hope this works well. We would like to do it again if its a success.Email: eallen@sun-herald.com Firefighters to make a 13-month calendar By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR PHOTOS PROVIDEDMembers of the Charlotte County Fireghters Benevolent Fund pose atop of a boat for the calendar that was sold to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

SARASOTA COUNTY The design of a new interchange at University Parkway and Interstate 75 is expected to be completed in February 2015, a couple of months sooner than previously anticipated, the chief of the state transportation agency said this week. Ananth Prasad, secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation, said Wednesday if the design for the diverging-diamond interchange is completed in February, ofcials could take bids for the project in May 2015. Construction could start in July or August next year, he said in a telephone interview with the Bradenton Herald following a conference in St. Petersburg. The project is expected to cost $72 million. Only last month, completion of the design was expected in May, ofcials from the Sarasota/ Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization were told. The accelerated design will be nished by February next year, and well be able to take bids in May for construction next year, Prasad said. Obviously, were working on that timeline. We are putting together how to get this project nanced. He reiterated his goal is completion of construction before the World Rowing Championship, expected to attract tens of thousands to nearby Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota in the fall of 2017. Also important to the trafc picture near the interchange is The Mall at University Town Center, slated to open Oct. 16. Theres lots of things happening in the positive direction there, Prasad said. We hope to get to a plan how to nance this project by next month. Its taking shape, so I think Im cautiously optimistic.Last month, MPO members expressed concern construction might still be underway when the rowing championship begins.Prasad said monetary incentives will be part of the construction contract to encourage early completion and penalize a late nish. The goal is to not nish the project late, he said. Everybody in the district knows the importance of getting it done before the world rowing event, and well work in a very collaborative way and solve any unforeseen problem.As planned, the new interchange will eliminate the need for trafc signals that control access onto the interstate, and will allow trafc to ow freely onto I-75. Plans also call for widening about 3.5 miles of I-75 from north of Fruitville Road to north of University Parkway to an eight-lane highway with three through lanes, and one auxiliary lane in each direction.Timeline moved up for interchange designBy SARA KENNEDYBRADENTON HERALD

Our Town Page 4 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 15, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS | POLICE BEATThe information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriffs office, Florida Highway Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is determined by the court system.PORT CHARLOTTE A 56-year-old Sarasota woman has been accused of taking a long cab ride she knew she couldnt pay for, according to a Charlotte County Sheriffs report. Diane Marie Ellsworth on Wednesday afternoon took a Blue Bird taxi from the Days Inn in the San Carlos Park area of Fort Myers to Sunshine Villas on Gertrude Avenue in Port Charlotte a 50-mile, $90 trip. The woman allegedly told the cab driver several times during the trip that she would pay with a credit card when they arrived at her destination, but she couldnt come up with payment once there. The cab driver called the Sheriffs Ofce. Ellsworth was drunk, and it was apparent she never had any means to pay for the cab ride, authorities said. She was arrested on one felony count of hiring a vehicle with the intent to defraud. Since the cab driver works independently, paying Blue Bird for use of the car, he was out the $90 cab fare, the CCSO report shows.The Charlotte County Sheriffs Office reported the following arrests: James Robin Allaire, 49, 7300 block of Sunnybrook Blvd., Englewood.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Elevated levels of rain this week will give way to drier weather through the weekend, said WINK-TV meteorologist Jim Farrell. The absence of large rain systems will result in temperatures that are warmer than average, according to Farrell. Coastal regions can expect temperatures at least in the low 90s on Saturday and Sunday, with a high probability that they will reach the mid-90s on both days. I wouldnt be sur prised if we saw 95 degrees on Saturday, said Farrell. Though rain is more likely to be on the way by Monday, weekend skies should remain relatively clear, he said. Those planning outdoor activities should know that there is an increased chance of rain on Saturday morning, but otherwise locals can expect isolated showers. Isolated showers are fewer in number than scattered showers, Farrell pointed out. Farrell also noted that Southwest Florida is experiencing a typical summer weather pattern. The higher temperatures are a trade-off we have for clear weather this time of year, he said. LAKEWOOD RANCH Insurance and health care savings were points of discussion among three school boards and their staffs this week. Wednesday, the Sarasota, Charlotte and Manatee county school boards met for an annual joint meeting, covering a variety of topics, including how to save money on health care and benets. Rick Mills, Manatee County superintendent, said his district has prior itized health care, and is working on an initiative to bring open health care enrollment, centered around transparency, wellness and well-being, to the board. Were looking at a package that will enable us as a school district to manage our premiums. Given our current program in place, were anticipating a signicant cost increase in the next few years, he said. Don Hall, Manatees deputy superintendent for operations, said staff has budgeted 20 percent for health care cost increases. Charlotte County Public Schools superintendent Doug Whittaker said his district went to self-insuring in 2010, opening a health clinic for staff, and requiring them to pay $50 into the plan. The $50 was reim bursable, however, provided they went through a health screening. Premiums are exactly the same as in 2010. In 2015, we dont expect to raise premiums again, Whittaker said. I cant tell you how much money has been saved. We believe our clinic has saved us millions of dollars. The Manatee district also is self-insured. Since we met way down south (in Charlotte County) last year, Sarasota County has been looking really hard at being self-insured, Sarasota School Board member Frank Kovach said. We had some pushback from our medical community. Doctors were concerned, Whittaker said of Charlotte opening a district clinic. But after about a year, when they didnt see a real serious impact, it became less of an issue. He added Charlotte is on the threshold of opening a clinic in Punta Gorda, and eventually will open one in Englewood. The Sarasota County School District isnt self-insured, although superintendent Lori White echoed Kovachs comments about the districts interest. We have formed, with (Chief Financial Ofcer Mitsi Corcorans) leadership, a task force to discuss the idea of becoming self-insured. We decided this year wasnt the bargaining time to make that change, she said, adding leadership of the Sarasota Classied/ Teachers Association, the union that represents district staff, has become more open to the idea. (They) have had more willingness to explore what are some of the ways we can drive down these costs, because theyre eating away at money that could go to salaries, White said. Hall asked Whittaker what he meant when he said Charlotte had had no cost increases for ve years. Weve had no increase in our premiums. Weve had, at the most, less than 1 percent increases weve been able to absorb, and maybe a total of 2 percent increase in real costs, Whittaker said. Julie Aranibar, Manatees board chair woman, asked about the average age of Charlotte district employees. Id say old. We are Charlotte County, now the second oldest county in the U.S., he replied. But our workforce is younger than it was ve years ago. Sarasota Board member Shirley Brown was curious about the smoking policies of the other two districts. Manatee County has banned smoking from its school campuses. Whittaker said Charlotte County recently changed its policy. We had no smoking on any school property, then picnic tables popped up behind Dumpsters, and there were areas in the back where people were smoking, he said, adding union leadership brought it to the districts attention that the policy wasnt being enforced. As of April 1 of last year, there is absolutely no tobacco use, including vapor cigarettes, on any campus. We dont even want parents smoking in the parent pickup lines not that were dragging them out of their cars but it stopped. People now literally have to drive off campus (to smoke).Email: annek@sun-herald.comSchool boards talk healthBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITERFairly clear skies ahead, but hotBy JOEL S.

The Sun /Friday, August 15, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. NORTH PORT The State Attorneys Ofce declined to le charges against a North Port man arrested last year on a charge of resisting arrest who claimed he was physically abused by the North Port Police Department. Joe Gibson, 30, had wandered naked into the woods off of Interstate 75 last year in mid-December, prompting the police to launch a search. He eventually turned up by himself at his mother Stephanies Napoleon Road home, but was still experiencing bouts of mania, which prompted Stephanie to call police again in hopes of placing her son under a Baker Act for treatment. Instead of taking Gibson to a mental health facility for 72 hours of treatment, as outlined by the Baker Act, North Port police would eventually arrest Gibson and charge him with a felony count of resisting arrest, after they say he physically lashed out at them. An NPPD report from Gibsons arrest on Dec. 15 states that the 30-year-old had conducted a physical barrage on the three ofcers who responded to the scene, but Stephanie said that instead of helping her son, the ofcers physically assaulted him. Assistant State Attorney Rebekah Bragg was unavailable for comment, but Stephanie told the Sun Thursday that the State Attorneys Ofce felt the fair and just resolution was to not prosecute the one count of resisting arrest. Joe would eventually le a complaint with the department against the ofcers who arrested him, claiming that while he was delusional at the time and was not cooperating with ofcers, the ofcers had control of him once they pinned him to the ground, so there was no need to strike him. North Port Police Chief Kevin Vespia said the internal affairs investigation has been completed, but he had not yet had the opportunity to review it. He declined comment until reviewing the information. Stephanie said they have not yet decided whether they are going to le a civil action again the Police Department, and were frustrated that the results of the IA had yet to be released. Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comState declines action on resisting arrest caseBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER NORTH PORT A 20-year-old man faces sexual battery charges for reportedly assaulting and raping two girls, one 15 years old at the time, according to the North Port Police Department. Anthony James Jacot, of the 2600 block of Halladay Street, was charged Thursday with two counts of sexual assault on a victim older than 12; and one count each of lewd or lascivious behavior, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and giving liquor to a person under 21, a report shows. Now 16, the rst victim began a sexual relationship with Jacot when she was 15, after meeting at the Port Charlotte Town Center mall in January. They had multiple sexual encounters at Jacots home, where he lives with his mother and father, the report shows. The victim told police that Jacot used alcohol and drugs and had extreme mood swings, during which he would become physically and sexually abusive. The report states the victim was choked and raped by Jacot approximately 12 separate times. A second female, now 18, came forward in July and told authorities that Jacot raped her once when she was 17 years old. The report states that when the second victim refused to have sex with Jacot, he repeatedly punched her in the head and face, choked her and raped her. Both of the females stated that Jacot used a number of drugs, including snorting morphine and smoking synthetic marijuana. A third female inter viewed in July said that Jacot never forced himself on her, although she corroborated the drug use and mood swings. The third female told authorities that Jacot is the father of four children and has had sex with at least 90 girls. Jacots Facebook page claims he went to North Port High School and describes himself as a Southern Djentlmen. Jacot was, at one point, the lead singer of a progressive deathcore band called Siege of Malakand, and had songs titled Dead Girls Cant Say No and We Sell Rape and Rape Accessories. Jacot now lists himself on Facebook as the lead singer of a genre folk fusion band called Anchorhouse, which hopes to spread love and music. Anchorhouse is also afliated with Mother Earth and Father Sky. All of the Universe, and lists the drug LSD as their inuence, Facebook shows. Jacot was arrested at his Halladay Street home on Tuesday and taken to the Sarasota County Jail, where he remains without bond. He was charged on July 14 by the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office for possession of mar ijuana, court records show.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comNorth Port man, 20, charged with raping two girlsBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER ANTHONY | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSLocal education foundation seeks volunteerThe Charlotte Local Education Foundation is in need of a volunteer to staff the Teacher Supply Depot, 1445 Education Way, Port Charlotte, at least one afternoon per week; times and days are exible.

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 15, 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.Just be happy with what you haveEditor: No one said they didnt want you to have a cut-through, we just want to know what the impact will be on Alligator Creek and the harbor. You weaken your sea walls by going out to the Harbor three to four times a week and put your life in danger from the storms. And I am sure that all the runoff from your over-fertilized lawns will really benet the sea life and plants. A man in Englewood gets a ne for cutting down mangroves, but its OK do it in PGI? I was born in Punta Gorda. My family has shed the waters of Charlotte County for over 100 years, until you transplants took that way of life away from them. Do you think that humpback bridge is there just so you can get a view of PGI? It was one of the main ways out of PGI until they cut through the Ponce outlet, so maybe you should be the one to get your facts straight before writing a letter. It does affect everyone in the county, as well. The harbor is a playground to all who live here. Its looking more and more like it is all about you. Maybe you should just enjoy your little slice of paradise that you have and deal with it. Yankees always wanting more and more, so just be happy with what you have. And have a great day.Larry L. Lowe Sr. Port CharlotteSupports Ivankovic for commissionEditor: Your recent endorsement of the incumbent candidate for District 4 commissioner is wrong. Either you failed to do your homework on Deutsch or youre too concerned about backlash from his cronies. Anyone can Google Charlotte County Clerk of Court website, as I have done, and search the candidates names to ensure each is indeed an upstanding citizen with unquestionable char acter. As Deutsch states on his own website, My belief is that elected ofcials must serve with the highest degree of integrity. As for Stoltzfus, I encourage voters of Charlotte County to check out the clerks website. There is only one viable District 4 candidate and thats Dave Ivankovic.Susan Hutt Port CharlotteCity just another layer of bureaucracyEditor: Is Port Charlotte incorporation city-hood good for the residents of the area? I dont think so. It may be good for the few who would gain control to regulate and power to tax and spend our money. Another layer of bureaucracy and taxes to support it is inherently bad for residents. Those who would like to control their own destiny should avoid bureaucracy, not create it. In reference to necessary service, the Port Charlotte area would nd it difcult, if not impossible, to afford to staff and equip a law enforcement agency close to measuring up to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce. The character and identity of unincorporated Port Charlotte are the reasons my wife and I chose to purchase our home here. For those who enjoy the quaint downtown and waterfront festivals of Punta Gorda as my wife and I do, cross the river and when nished enjoying, cross back and go home to beautiful Port Charlotte. Let us not allow city-hood to spoil the character and identity of the unincorporated Port Charlotte we love and are so proud of.Jim Hull Port CharlotteInconsistency in GOP politicsEditor: Democrats represent the majority of Floridas registered voters. Over-representation of rural districts and voter suppression in urban areas plus a healthy measure of gerrymandering has given the Republican minority a crafty way to be the legislative majority party. This has consequences when a party puts a priority on ideology instead of the majority of Floridians. A case in point is opposition to the ACA (Obamacare). Floridas Republican Legislature has denied the Florida Department of Insurance the ability to challenge health insurer rate increases. Many believe this was done to make it more probable increases would occur so Republicans could further rant about Obamacare. In spite of the lack of oversight by the Department of Insurance, rates are mostly decreasing and any increases are at a much lower rate than prior to Obamacare. It would be better still if Republican ideology had not squished accepting a 100-percent-paid-for increase in enrollment in Medicaid. The millions of Floridians denied Medicaid continue to seek higher cost emergency room services, thus further increasing the cost to all insured Floridians. Republicans accept government-insured Medicare, yet deny coverage to sick poor kids. Hypocritical, you bet it is, but inconsistency is no stranger to Republican politics. Republicans originally opposed the socialism in Medicare but didnt oppose the VA (nothing is closer to a socialist health delivery system than the VA). I guess they can turn a blind eye to socialism when it suits them.Douglas Kennedy Punta GordaChoosing Yates in North PortEditor: As an individual who has observed Commissioner Yates since her election to the commission in 2010, I cannot stress enough how important her re-election will be. From the very beginning of her term she has been our one commissioner standing up for the citizens of North Port. She has consistently and persistently researched each and every matter, asking the tough questions, and the proof positive lies in her record for anyone to hear and see for themselves in the city of North Ports online recorded meetings. She remains steadfast in her commitment to have her constituents fairly represented, whether it is the issue of the Bayite emergency helicopter operation remaining in North Port (because of her insistence that it be placed back on the agenda) or her attempt to keep Warm Mineral Springs from closing, with her suggestion in the spring of 2013 to keep it open for swimming only while working out the future plan. It was not until a year later when both the Sarasota and North Port commissions voted to follow her suggestion, but only after its closure the rst time. Please take the time to question and do your own research. North Ports future is in our hands, and as for me, Commissioner Yates is the one I choose to remain in Seat 5.Kathryn Lanza North PortIsrael is not a terrorist nationEditor: Responding to the letter on Aug. 6, this person claims the Israelis are terrorists who supposedly occupy Gaza. Its also stated that Hamas was democratically elected. Well, look up the word ter rorism, The use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes. Terrorist: A person or persons who terrorizes or frightens others. First, Israel isnt occupying Gaza. Second, Israel doesnt continually re missiles on a daily basis into Gaza. Third, Israel hasnt built any terrorist tunnels into Gaza for the sole purpose of killing and kidnapping the inhabitants of Gaza. Hamas doesnt care about how many people die in Gaza. If they did, they wouldnt use them as human shields. Its a known fact that Hamas has no other purpose but to destroy Israel. As for the Palestinians they are as much to blame as Hamas for the loss of innocent lives. They knew about the terrorist tunnels, about Hamas placing weapons and missiles near schools, homes and other buildings. What did they do to stop Hamas from doing this? Nothing. If this person ever looked at a map of the Middle East, it would become apparent that Israel is surrounded by all Arab countries who, at one point, wanted Israel wiped off the face of the earth. Fortunately, Israel with the help of the U.S. learned how to defend itself. Israel has the right to defend itself from people who want to obliterate it. That doesnt make Israel a terrorist.Howard Elkin Punta GordaHelmets, please, when riding bicyclesEditor: As an avid bicycle rider and fan of our rst responders, I was very impressed with the ride recently completed by our Brotherhood Riders. However, I was very disturbed by the images these riders portrayed. The pictures in the Sun showed most riders wore hel mets that appear to be inappropriate for preventing head injuries in a bicycle accident. Worse yet, several riders wore no safety helmets, but instead wore baseball-type caps. Head injuries are the number one cause of deaths from bicycle accidents. Earlier this year, our local weather forecaster, Jim Reif, lost his life in a bicycle accident where he was not wearing a helmet. Please, Brotherhood Riders, recognize the impact your images and behavior have on inuencing the many bicycle riders who look up to you. Next ride, please wear the appropriate helmets.Wayne Palmer Punta Gorda OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

LETTER SUBMISSION POLICYEmail letters to letters@sun-herald.comChairman Derek Dunn-Rankin Publisher David Dunn-Rankin Executive Editor Chris Porter Editorial page editor Brian Gleason Editorial writer Stephen Baumann Editor John Hackworth V IEWPOINT A state, a plan, PanamaOUR POSITION: Anniversary highlights coming wave of imports from expanded canal.Thursdays 100th anniver sary of the opening of the Panama Canal on Aug. 14, 1914, is a reminder of the potential economic boon to Florida when a $6 billion expansion project is completed in 2015. Ports around the state, including Port Manatee and Port Tampa, have embarked on their own expansions to accommodate the larger ships that pass through the canal to and from the U.S. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers estimates container volume at Gulf Coast ports could more than double by 2029. Floridas 15 deep-water ports plan to spend $2.6 billion over ve years deepening their channels, adding cranes, dockside rail and other infrastructure to better position themselves to capture the cargo trafc and the good-paying jobs that trade generates, according to Florida Trend magazine. At Port Tampa, a $20.8 million container-yard expansion drew $10.4 million in state funding, part of $129 million in seaport funding in the 2014-2015 state budget. Port Manatee, which bills itself as the closest U.S. port to the canal, is exploring a dredging project to deepen Manatee Harbors 40-foot depth to attract larger ships. Without the dredging, the port cannot handle the 47to 50-foot drafts of the massive new ships. A similar dredging project is already underway at Port Miami, giving it the early edge over Gulf Coast ports. (Cargo will still wind up in shallower ports, after being transferred to smaller ships in hub ports, such as Freeport, Bahamas.) The race to lure shipping from West Coast ports is not without risk, both for the port authorities making multimillion-dollar investments and state economic development ofcials steering billions of dollars in infrastructure investment. The COE study noted that a manufacturing shift from China to India and Southeast Asia would make shipping containers through the Suez Canal to U.S. East Coast ports more economical, at the expense of southern U.S. ports closer to the Panama Canal. Another wild card is climate change. The Corps study stated, recent climate models indicate the Northwest Passage [through the Arctic Ocean] could be ice-free for up to nine months by the year 2030. Ships from China could traverse the passage to reach Northeast U.S. ports without having to pay costly canal toll fees. Florida has some advantages, though. The state is soon expected to become the third most populous in the country and its location makes it costly to transport goods here by land. Direct shipping to Tampa or Manatee could be an attractive alternative. Another incentive for shippers is the ability to reload with Florida agricultural exports and avoid empty return trips. A report by Shipping Watch magazine estimated the cost of shipping empty containers back to Asia costs industry leader Maersk Line more than $1 billion a year. Florida Agriculture Secretary Adam Putnam traveled to Panama earlier this year to see the progress on the canal expansion and to pitch exports. It remains to be seen how growing import trafc will affect communities away from ports, such as Sarasota, Charlotte and DeSoto counties. Demand for distribution centers, warehouses, cheap land and intermodel facilities will almost certainly rise, especially along Interstate 75. Asian demand could impact which crops Florida farmers plant. One hundred years ago, the Panama Canal transformed global shipping. It is about to do it again and Florida has a front-row seat. summer vacation"? ,went back-to ShookWhat AN A15 that? shopping',,,ringFoeini biKe,For ?iK? ?TMl1 NTy 9ITTO.?IV? N11f?UT S!

The Sun /Friday, August 15, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT Politicians have ranges of positions of varying widths that they nd acceptable. Hillary Clinton, like her husband, has a very wide range of stands she nds acceptable, depending on timing and circumstances. President Obamas range of acceptable positions has been far narrower. This is reected in their attitudes about military action in Iraq. Clinton was for it in 2002 and was against it by 2007. Obama was always against what he called a dumb war. As for President George W. Bushs surge strategy, Clinton told Obama, in front of a surprised and dismayed Robert Gates, that her opposition to the surge was political because she was facing him in the Iowa primary. Obama, according to Gates, merely conceded that opposition to the surge by whom? was political. So perhaps it was not too surprising that Clinton told the Atlantics Jeffrey Goldberg that Hamas initiated this conict with Israel (a contrast with Obamas condemnation of violence on both sides), that Iran has no right to enrichment (which Obama is conceding in negotiations) and that Obamas refusal to aid acceptable Syrian rebels in 2011 left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now lled. Clintons dismissal of Obamas foreign policy philosophy was contemptuous. Great nations need organizing principles, and dont do stupid stuff is not an organizing principle. Circumstances have changed, so the once-loyal secretary of state, now contemplating her second presidential candidacy, was engaging in Clintonian triangulation. She would be less rough than Bush, less dreamy than Obama: a Goldilocks candidate. But perhaps cir cumstances have not changed so much. After Obama adviser David Axelrod tweeted that stupid stuff referred to the Iraq war, Clinton announced she was ready to hug the president again. There are lots of left-wing peacenik voters in Democratic primaries. You have to win the nomination before getting to the general election. Clintons turnaround was not as surprising, however, as Obamas. The president who declared in June 2011 that the tide of war is receding and that the long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will come to a responsible end has ordered hundreds of U.S. troops back to Iraq and launched air strikes with no end in sight there. For a politician whose range of acceptable positions has previously been very narrow, this is an astonishing turnaround. There is only one explanation: Obamas foreign policy is in shambles. Decisions he took in 2011, perhaps with the 2012 election in mind, have come to seem gravely mistaken. The refusal to aid Syrian rebels, which Clinton opposed in internal administration councils, has left the eld open to the Islamic State rebels who control much of Syria and Northern Iraq and threaten U.S.-friendly Iraqi Kurdistan. The decision to leave Iraq without a residual U.S. troop presence, contrary to military leaders recommendation to station 10,000 there, has left the U.S. with little political or military leverage. Obama now cites Iraqs refusal to give parliamentary approval of a status of forces agreement as the reason for total withdrawal. But he did have administrative approval, which is the basis for American status-offorces agreements elsewhere. In the 2012 foreign policy debate with Mitt Romney, Obama sang a different tune. He didnt want a SOF agreement, Obama said: What I would not have done is left 10,000 troops in Iraq that would tie us down. That stand was within the narrow range of positions Obama found acceptable. Keeping troops in Iraq was not. Now, it cannot be said for certain that different decisions would have produced optimal results. Aiding Syrian rebels was a dicey proposition at best, and there was no guarantee it would have produced an acceptable alternative to the Assad regime. Keeping a troop presence in Iraq might not have prevented the dysfunctional course of the al-Maliki government, either. But it probably would have imposed some restraint. And it would give the United States a better logistical position to repel the Islamic State, protect the Yazidis and guard Kurdistan than we have now the goals Obama says he is now pursuing. No president can anticipate all the twists and turns the world will take during his tenure in ofce. But this president has been proven dreadfully wrong. Between rounds of golf and political fundraisers rst things rst he has been forced to realize that America cannot withdraw from troublesome parts of the world without terrible consequences. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner. Readers can reach him via www. washingtonexaminer. com.Anticipating the twists and turns Michael Barone The Republican Party has nally admitted what has been fairly obvious for much of the past six years: It produces fake news. This is not an earth-shattering revelation to anybody who has been paying attention but, still, its an important step for the party to embrace the phoniness. NRCC Launches Fake News Sites to Attack Democratic Candidates was a headline in the National Journal on Tuesday. As Shane Goldmacher reported, The National Republican Congressional Committee, which came under re earlier this year for a deceptive series of fake Democratic candidate websites that it later changed after public outcry, has launched a new set of deceptive websites, this time designed to look like local news sources. These two dozen sites, with names such as North County Update and Central Valley Update look like political fact-checking sites; the NRCCs spokeswoman, Andrea Bozek, called it a new and effective way to disseminate information. An NRCC ofcial told me the sites are legal because, if you scroll all the way to the bottom, youll nd, Paid for by the National Republican Congressional Committee in small print. Theyre not fake websites, the ofcial said. These are real attack websites. Real attacks, but fake news: This is a fairly accurate summary of what the GOPs scandalmongers have been purveying during the Obama years. There was the assertion that the White House was covering up high-level involvement in Operation Fast and Furious, a gun program under the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that went awry. No evidence was found. There was the accusation that the Obama White House pushed through money for Solyndra to pay the presidents political cronies even though ofcials knew the solar-energy rm was going bankrupt. Didnt happen that way. Accusation: Obamacare would bring about the collapse of the American health care system and replace it with socialized medicine and death panels. No such thing has occurred. The IRS scandal, it was alleged, could be traced back to the White House, which targeted Obamas enemies for political reasons. Nope. The actual truth of the allegations doesnt matter. Each one sullied President Obamas name, and investigators failure to deliver the goods did little to remove the taint. Thats why fake news works: Falsehoods can drive a presidents approval rating into the cellar while the truth is still getting out of bed. And now we have the Benghazi exoneration. For nearly two years, Republicans have been alleging all manner of scandal involving the 2012 attacks on U.S. facilities in the Libyan city. That somebody Hillary Clinton? issued a stand-down order to prevent help from getting to American ofcials under re; that Clinton had rejected pleas for more diplomatic security in Libya; and that the Obama White House pushed false talking points to play down the terrorist attacks. The accusations have been roundly debunked, most recently in military ofcers testimony released by the GOPcontrolled House Armed Services Committee. Now theres a bipar tisan report, adopted unanimously by the GOP-controlled House Intelligence Committee on July 31, awaiting declassication by the administration. It throws yet another bucket of cold water on the conspiracy theories. In a statement, the top Democrat on the panel, Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, said the report nds that: There was no intelligence failure sur rounding the Benghazi attacks. There was no standdown order given to American personnel attempting to offer assistance that evening, and no American was left behind. The talking points reected the conicting intelligence assessments in the days immediately following the crisis. There was no illegal activity or illegal arms sales occurring at U.S. facilities in Benghazi. And there was absolutely no evidence, in documents or testimony, that the intelligence communitys assessments were politically motivated in any way. The report is not yet public, and Republican sources indicate that there is more disagreement in the report than Ruppersbergers statement indicates and that the report is not as exculpatory as he implies. But there has been no challenge from the Republican side to the accuracy of the ndings Ruppersberger detailed in his statement. Now that the truth is catching up to them, House Republicans will need to stay one step ahead. Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, chairman of the select committee on Benghazi, told CNNs Deirdre Walsh last week that, despite what the Intelligence Committee found, there is more work to be done and more to be investigated. Excellent. Maybe he can post his phony accusations on some fake news websites. Dana Milbank is a Washington Post columnist.

Our Town Page 10 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 15, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE The citrus greening disease that kills trees but rst slashes fruit yields hasnt been conquered. Neither has canker and a host of other pests and diseases. Still, commercial citrus growers and people in related elds arent giving up on a $9-billion-a-year Florida industry that supports an estimated 76,000 jobs. This year theyve attracted more federal and state research dollars for ghting their biggest nemesis: greening, also called HLB. Since rst detected nine years ago in MiamiDade County, greening has been found in every citrus-producing county in Florida, as well as in portions of Texas and Louisiana. Until HLB-resistant varieties can be developed, growers are concentrating on keeping infected trees as robust as possible. Thats a major driver for the annual Citrus Expo seminar and trade show beginning today at Lee Civic Center in North Fort Myers. Its expected to attract at least 2,000 industry members over the next two days. Top of mind for growers: Boosting yields of usable fruit even as the greening ght goes on. Weve got to have enough product to make our major juice producers a prot or theyll pull out and the industry collapses, said Norman Todd, a citrus grower and consultant for more than 50 years. Such a debacle doesnt look imminent. Last year the Coca-Cola Co. committed $2 billion to support planting of 25,000 acres of new orange groves in Florida. For Duda Ranches LaBelle properties, a por tion of that investment will bring 2,900 acres of new plantings of oranges for the juice market. In a separate under taking, we have begun lling in empty spaces in our existing 8,000 acres of juice and fresh (fruit) varieties, said Rob Atchley, Duda general manager for citrus groves in Florida and Texas. Todd himself is optimistic well survive greening, although it will be difcult and costly. Helping out: The farm bill President Barack Obama signed into law early February gives a $125 million emergency allocation over ve years for studies into stopping the greening disease. The $77 billion budget Gov. Rick Scott signed this spring pledges about $3.5 million for pest and disease control. And in June, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced another $6.5 million for three Florida projects aimed at ghting greening. Through taxing themselves on the number of boxes of fruit harvested, Florida citrus growers have invested some $70 million into greening research over the past ve years, said Wayne Simmons, head of LaBelle Fruit Co. and president of Gulf Citrus Growers Association. Theres no quick and easy x, Simmons said, adding: Were closer than we were ve years ago.Citrus industry down but not outBy LAURA RUANE FORT MYERS NEWS-PRESS there are several benets of improving the major roadway, including better access to Murdock Village, which will be further developed in the future. There will be better trafc ow, he said. And a widened U.S. 41 would be able to handle increased trafc. In June, Scott signed his Its Your Money Tax Cut Budget, with $10.1 billion set aside to improve Floridas infrastructure. Our economy is strong and growing, Scott stated in a press release Thursday. Because of our growth, we were able to secure more than $10 billion for transportation projects, which is the largest transportation funding ever in Florida history. ... These projects will enhance our infrastructure to support commerce, decrease commute times and make our roads safer for families. The most expensive of the six ventures is a $255 million project that will add lanes to Interstate 95 in Volusia County, near Daytona Beach. Construction is expected to begin next year. Other projects will take place in Miami-Dade, Hernando, Duval and Bay counties.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comSCOTTFROM PAGE 1 CRASHFROM PAGE 1authorities he was concerned that if he landed in deep water the fixed landing gear would cause the plane to flip over, so he aimed for the shoreline. The pilot saw groups of people along the beach, and attempted to navigate around them. He then aimed for a spot where he thought there were no people, and landed in the water near the shoreline, the report states. It wasnt until a woman on the beach told the pilot and his passenger, who were uninjured, that she needed a cellphone to call 911 that the pilot learned the airplane hit two people. The plane landed 200 feet beyond the swimmers. Venice Police provided transcripts from interviews with six witnesses, who were consistent in what they saw and heard. One stated he was standing in waist-deep water when he saw the airplane pass directly over his head about 30 feet above. There was no noise from the engine and the propeller (was twirling), he said. According to Rebecca Irazarry, Ommys wife, she saw the plane in her peripheral vision pass by very low, but didnt see her family struck. Her stepson, who was coming out of the water when the plane passed by, told her that he ducked when it went over his head. He didnt indicate if he saw his father or sister struck by the aircraft.The victims were in about 4 feet of water and were very close to each other, states the report. The wife ran to pull her stepdaughter out of the water and a friend pulled her husband out of the water. Both victims were unresponsive and not breathing. A man arrived with knowledge of CPR and gave assistance to her husband, while the wife administered to her stepdaughter, according to the report. When investigators reassembled the plane in central Florida, days later, the engine started up after the second attempt. NTSB, Federal Aviation Administration, Piper Aircraft and Lycoming Engine investigators further documented the airplane and engine. Each wing fuel tanks fuel supply line from the tank to its disconnect point in the cockpit was found to be clear, and each tanks vent system was also clear. Engine compression, magneto spark (a series of the equivalent of automobile spark plugs), and engine crankshaft checks were also completed with no anomalies noted, according to the report. The carburetor was examined, with nothing found that would have precluded normal operation. Research of engine electrical, air induction and fuel delivery systems continues. The report states the pilot indicated it was the first time the airplane had flown in the preceding three and a half months. The left fuel tank was three-quarters full, while the right fuel tank was half-full. NTSB officials would not comment on the report, except to say it could take up to a year for a final report to be issued. The Irizarry family had come to Sarasota County from Georgia to celebrate Ommy and Rebeccas nine-year anniversary.

And more courtroom drama yet may unfold. Not only could the plaintiffs appeal the monetary award, but Charlotte County announced it will seek a second opinion in the original liability trial in January, when the county was found to have committed a taking of the property by denying building permits in the absence of water and sewer systems. We have not been able to appeal the taking decision, until now, Frohlich said. Its our goal to appeal. If the a ppellate court reverses the decision, then not only would the plaintiffs lose their minimal monies, but they would owe Charlotte County a substantial amount of money for costs and attorneys fees. In the original trial, 20th Circuit Judge Joseph Foster ruled the county denied the plaintiffs use of their property for a ve-year period from Feb. 13, 2006, when the county refused to issue building permits, to March 31, 2011, when the county installed a new water and sewer system in Rotonda Villas. As such, the jury of 12 was instructed to determine the amount of damages by using a formula that calculates the difference of the property values before and after the taking in February 2006, then multiplying it by the market rate of return over the next ve years. Both sides agreed that the market rate of return was a key consideration in the judgment, while offering wildly divergent estimates of what that number should be. The argument seemed to come down to the expectations of the plaintiffs during a hot real estate market at the start of 2006, versus the reality of what actually occurred during the next ve years, which coincided with the bursting of the housing bubble. The plaintiffs were seeking a $33 million verdict, based on a 13 percent market rate of return compounded annually, raising it to 17 percent, ultimately yielding an 87 percent return on their investment. The county, taking the recession into account, was offering about $1 million, assuming a 2 percent market rate of return per year. Thomas M. Dougherty, attorney for the plaintiffs, framed his case to the jury by using the judges own words in his previous ruling, saying property owners suffered substantial deprivation of the use of their land and are due full compensation. He also cited constitutional rights to bolster his argument. The constitution allows the individual citizen the unshakable right to stand up against his or her government and ask for fair and full compensation, he said. All three plaintiffs took the stand this past week to tell how their property was rendered useless when the county failed to provide water and sewer service. For example, Bilowit purchased 302 of his lots for $9 million before the taking of the property in 2006. After the taking, a proposed bulk sale of these lots for $12 million fell through when the potential buyers learned there was no water or sewer service, Dougherty said. The plaintiffs all said they had planned to sell their properties within a year, thereby avoiding the nancial hit brought on by the housing collapse. The sole reason Charlotte County refused to give building permits was the lack of sewer and water, Dougherty stated. Thats all because Charlotte County failed to do their job. The county countered that there was no demand to buy in Rotonda Villas, saying there were thousands of other vacant lots available in the area that were far readier for development with water, electricity and approval for septic systems but still werent selling. Littlestar told jurors that the county didnt live up to its promise to provide water and sewer service, making it impossible to sell the land. But the county pointed out that Littlestar actually owned the utility that installed and owned the water and sewer systems in Rotonda Villas from 1994 to 1998, and should have known the systems were not operable before he purchased the property. Frohlich characterized Littlestar as a real estate salesman, who never intended to build on the land, only to ip it for prot. He said Littlestars testimony was only a sales pitch to the jury. These plaintiffs are not to be compensated for any alleged lost prots, Frohlich said in his closing argument. And there is a very common-sense reason for that. The plaintiffs still own all their lots, and they intend to sell their lots. Frohlich also told the jury how another plaintiff, Andress, spent tens of thousands of dollars to buy more lots, even after the countys taking of the property. Actions speak louder than words, Frohlich repeated. After the jurys verdict, county commissioners, who all had been present during the trial, also rejoiced in the outcome. The jurors really showed they had a lot of patience and paid very close attention, Commissioner Tricia Duffy said. The $3 million decision is much more fair to the taxpayers of Charlotte County.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comSEWERFROM PAGE 1The $3 million decision is much more fair to the taxpayers of Charlotte County.

Our Town Page 12 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 15, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Imagine the better part of a thousand teachers and 900 more nonteaching staff leaving hot, humid, storm-damaged homes without electricity, or leaving motels miles from their school district workplace, and arriving at 5:30 a.m. or staying until 9 or 10 at night due to double-session school scheduling.Re-create similar images for many of 17,000 students from 3 to 19 years of age, and the cinema in your mind will put you directly in the world of Monday, Aug. 30, 2004. These incredible people students, staff, parents and community members of Charlotte County struggled mightily to craft a normal, typical day from the ruins of a community and school system decimated a mere two weeks earlier by a Category 4 hurricane, Hurricane Charley. It is these people I salute in this writing, as we mark 10 years from that time. Recently, Andrea Messina and Christy Feinberg asked me to recount salient memories from that event. I agreed and began thinking about all that transpired in the aftermath of the storm, especially in those critical rst few weeks post-storm, but also in the months that followed. My thoughts ran then, and continue to run to this day, directly to people students, parents, staff, community members good folks whom I had grown to love, who shook off the shock of the storm and stepped up, singularly at rst, then in a humanistic harmony that righted our school district and community at a dizzying speed. So many deserving people never received an ofcial or public thanks for their contributions, and I want to name a few of those people here. I cannot possibly name all of those ne people in this space, but I want all of the helpers to know that I, and a grateful community, knew then and have never forgotten how much your unselsh work meant to all. I not only offer my public thanks, but also I hope to encourage the citizens of Charlotte County to recall people who were heroes or helpful neighbors to them, and perhaps take a moment to thank them for their help 10 years ago. My focus is, of course, on people in and around the school system who were completely unselfish and helpful. First, my overarching and heartfelt thanks go out to the countless teachers, leadership staff, students, secretaries, social workers, food-service workers, counselors, custodians, plumbers, carpenters, electricians, aides, technicians, psychologists, mechanics, coaches and others who were quietly doing things that pulled us all together and created a synergy of purpose and caring. To all of these people, I humbly say, Thank you. I recall specic people like Terri Whitacre, director of our school food-service program, who immediately after the storm sought and gained USDA approval to move most of the still-frozen school lunch food from the Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte middle school freezers, where there was no electricity, to the intact Englewood schools. Doing this enabled us to feed hundreds of community members who were hungry, and who sheltered at those schools in the two weeks after the storm; I recall Chuck Weeks, a technical specialist with CCPS, who almost singlehandedly formed Charleys Angels, a group of CCPS employ ees who brought water, tarps, plywood and food, and anything else needed, to families around the area they literally went door to door and roof to roof, just helping folks in need. I remember Rich Turney and Dennis Neff, head custodians at Charlotte High School and Port Charlotte High School, respectively, who, when they heard PCHS was going to host CHS on double sessions, met and painstakingly worked out the details to make a huge undertaking look easy and feel as painless as possible for students and staff of both schools. There were folks like Jill Mead and Ron Scarborough, and many bus drivers and mechanics of the CCPS transportation department, who took school buses through neighborhood after neighborhood after the storm. Their buses were loaded with plywood, cases of water, and supplies of all kinds, ready to help anyone and everyone who needed it; they also crafted an entirely new bus routing system for more than 10,000 student riders in less than two weeks to accommodate the new school hours an almost impossible task in such a short time frame. Dan Jeffers and Kathie Bohlander, principals at Lemon Bay High School and L.A. Ainger Middle School, respectively, coordinated the entire community shelter program at those two schools for two weeks, often arriving at 6 a.m., and leaving after 9 at night. They also offered shelter to weary workers coming in from out of county who had no place to stay but their trucks. There were teachers like Sonja Rozier and Angela Navarro, Cynthia Dunham-Durheimer and Mark James, and Marti Savard and Karen Parnell who shared schools and classrooms on double sessions month after month without complaint, with infectious smiles, and whose friendship have endured long after the double sessions. Men like Mike Riley and Steve Cummings took and dealt with call after call from the press, emergency personnel, and outside county groups wanting to help; they stayed in constant contact with me on every single issue confronting us for weeks on end. Women like my assistant Margie Smith tirelessly elded thousands of calls (when the phones came back up) from parents, staff and others wanting information on school damages and reopening plans; and Trish Thomas, director of the Charlotte Local Education Foundation, who coordinated, from dawn to after dark, the acceptance and delivery of thousands of donations to our district from other school districts, organizations and individuals from around the country. And, as I recall Charlotte Countys incredible young people, students like Kameron Keesling of CHS and Sarah Ingebretsen of PCHS who assisted their principals Barney Duffy and Steve Dionisio, as well as fellow students, throughout the year of double sessions with all the scheduling and activity changes that resulted. They were remarkable kids with amazing resilience, great ideas and maturity who truly lived their new dual motto, Divided by a River, United by a Storm. I remember amazing contributions from assistant superintendents and directors like Roseann Samson, who took charge of the daunting FEMA requirements and planning for all of the architectural selections and renderings for new schools; and Jerry Olivo, who coordinated the restoration, demolition and construction plans, and who ensured that schools were ready to open two weeks after the storm. Donna Widmeyer coordinated humanitarian and counseling services to hundreds of employees, students and community members (including employees of this newspaper) suffering from the emotional effects of the storm. Rene Desjardins, who stitched together, in concert with principals, the double-session fabric and the schedules that ensured a solid education for all our students in devastated schools. Fran Brasseur and Greg Griner pulled together the nancial and payroll plan to pay all our employees, without missing a pay date, despite electrical outages and logistical hurdles. Jan Williams coordinated the effort in Punta Gorda with the National Guard as they assisted in protecting our devastated schools until we could establish fencing and security; and Carol Kehrer, who, as purchasing director, coordinated both the accounting of destroyed equipment and the procurement of new equipment for double sessions and rebuilt schools a monumental task.I note also Tom Young in Human Resources, Dan Parrett from (the) Sarasota County (School District) (on loan to us indenitely at that time), who were instrumental in communication with our union leaders so that we were of one accord with all changes in working conditions. John Weant and Chris Bress in our technology departments worked with their teams to ensure that not only was the information infrastructure of our system safe, but they also made sure that our students and staff continued to have important classroom technology.Finally, I must commend the work and trust of the School Board at the time of the storm. Connie Kantor, Andrea Messina, Barbara Rendell, Sue Sifrit and Lee Swift made up the board during and in the few months after the storm, and most of them received damage to their homes or businesses on Aug. 13. Despite that, they were present and active in our rst meetings directly after the storm and, as plans crystalized in those rst couple of days, they voiced strong and unwavering support for me, my staff, and our plans to get our schools open for kids again. Their authorization of emergency powers to me in the days after the storm meant that we could move at high speed to clean up debris, repair what could be repaired, dry out student learning spaces, recraft schedules and restart the school year on Aug. 30. I have thanked them many times for their trust and support and, 10 years later, I thank them again for believing and being a part of the leader ship that took our school district from a point of watching 40 percent of its schools be seriously damaged or destroyed by a storm, to one that began a journey of excellence in rebuilding buildings and educating students for the next seven years. To the board and to all of those who were a part of our community and school district comeback, thanks so very much for the weeks, months and years of no-excuse hard work, perseverance and strong leadership that resulted in high levels of student achievement seven straight years of school district As and six new, hardened schools that will stand for decades in service to our students. Teachers, staff, students, parents and our community at large all sacriced much during the weeks and months after Charley, but because of it, we did get stronger of heart and mind, our kids did learn at higher levels than ever before, and we all learned something about ourselves individually and collectively. We learned simply, but oh so importantly, that people who stand up after being punched hard by a disaster and put feet to their prayers can lead a community and an organization to success to wit Student Success and we can become a stronger and more harmonious community because of those courageous actions.

LIEB and JIM SALTERASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERSMissouri Highway Patrol seizes control of securitySECURITY | 4 AP PHOTOPolice walk through a cloud of smoke as they clash with protesters Wednesday, in Ferguson, Mo. WASHINGTON More than two-thirds of the recent rapid melting of the worlds glaciers can be blamed on humans, a new study nds. Scientists looking at glacier melt since 1851 didnt see a human ngerprint until about the middle of the 20th century. Even then only one-quarter of the warming wasnt from natural causes. But since 1991, about 69 percent of the rapidly increasing melt was man-made, said Ben Marzeion, a climate scientist at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. Glaciers are really shrinking rapidly now, he said. I think its fair to say most of it is man-made. Scientists fault global warming from the burning of coal, oil and gas as well as changes in land use near glaciers and soot pollution. Glaciers in Alaska and the Alps in general have more human-caused melting than the global average, Marzeion said. The study is published Thursday in the journal Science.Study blames humans for glacier meltBy SETH BORENSTEINAP SCIENCE WRITERGLACIER | 4 AP PHOTOThis undated handout photo provided by NASA shows the Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctic. BEIT LAHIYA, Gaza Strip The group of neighbors sur veyed the destruction wreaked on their residential complex by Israeli bombardment, with building after building attened or punctured by shells. The men then began to voice something almost never heard out loud in Gaza: criticism of its Hamas rulers. Exhausted by a month of pounding by Israels military on top of seven years of stiing closure of the tiny Mediterranean coastal strip they questioned Hamas handling of the crisis and the wisdom of repeatedly going to war with Israel. We do not want to be bombarded every two or three years. We want to lead a good life: Sleep well, drink well and eat well, said Ziad Rizk, a 37-year-old father of two, a cigarette dangling from his mouth. He stared at the damaged apartment building where he lived. His sofa and a blue baby carriage were perched precariously on a tilting concrete slab that was his oor. It is impossible to say how widespread such discontent is among Gazas 1.8 million residents. Under Hamas rule, its rare and dangerous to share even as much as a hint of criticism of the government with outsiders. Still, the mens boldness in voicing their opinions could be a telling sign that some Gazans see Hamas as weakened. It points to Subtle voices of dissent surface in GazaBy HAMZA HENDAWIASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERDISSENT | 4 KAMENSK-SHAKHTINSKY, Russia Raising the stakes in Ukraines conict, a Russian aid convoy of more than 200 trucks pushed up to the border on Thursday but then stopped, provocatively poised to cross into rebel-held territory. The Ukrainian government threatened to use all means available to block the convoy if the Red Cross was not allowed to inspect the cargo. Such an inspection would ease concerns that Russia could use the aid shipment as cover for a military incursion in support of the separatists, who have come under growing pressure from government troops. The United States has warned Russia that it needs to secure Ukraines permission for the convoy to enter.

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 15, 2014 STATE NEWS (Fort Myers News-Press) FCAT. Florida Standards. Common core. No matter what you call it, the school board wants it gone. Board members unanimously expressed their disdain for standardized testing at the school board meeting Tuesday, pledging to research the possibility of opting out the entire district from standardized testing. There needs to be a come-to-Jesus meeting to talk about these issues point blank, Chairman Tom Scott said. Board member Don Armstrong said the district cannot afford to continue testing at the current rate. A lot of our money is being poured out of this county to go to one company, I wont say names, he said. But on this board or not on this board, I wont stand for it anymore. Dozier asked the board to vote to opt out the entire district from testing. Some school districts have done this in Texas, but none in Florida. Why cant we be the rst? Dozier asked, prompting an applause in the audience. Board members Mary Fischer and Cathleen Morgan voiced similar concerns. State assessments have been designed for kids to fail, Fischer said. Ive worked in school since 1960. Just follow the money, look it up on the Internet, its about people making billions of dollars. Scott urged the public to get involved. This is your school district, and the more parents making noise, the more likely people are going to hear it in Tallahassee, he told the audience. I ask every one here to nd 10 other people who feel the way you do and start making some noise. Superintendent Nancy Graham said the board should carefully research the possible ramications of opting out. Im not saying we cant do it, but we need to think about these things purposefully and intentionally, she said. Three moms in attendance from the group Teaching Not Testing echoed the boards sentiment. Tess Brennan, the mother of a secondgrader, said her daughter can usually read at a fifth-grade reading level. But when her daughter missed answering three questions on an exam to take a bathroom break, it significantly hurt her overall score. She missed three questions because she had to poop, Brennan told the board. It took three weeks to convince my child that she can still read. She can. She can devour a 100-page book in 45 minutes. Relieving some of that testing pressure off students and relieving the subsequent nancial strain on the district is one of the legislative goals for the upcoming year, said district lobby ist Bob Cerra. Some of those efforts include allowing the district more exibility in testing schedules, requir ing the state to cover all testing costs and rejecting all unfunded state mandates. If they want to do it, they can pay for it, Cerra said. Growing resistance to testing in Southwest Florida reects many attitudes nationwide. Legislators in Texas passed a law in 2013 to sharply reduce the amount of standardized testing.Lee County School Board considers opting out district from testing TAMPA (AP) Two hurricane hunter aircrafts based in Florida will get a $35 million overhaul starting next year. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration officials say the refurbishing wont take the two Orion P-3 propeller planes out of service this hurricane season.

The Sun /Friday, August 15, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 WORLD NEWS BAGHDAD (AP) Iraqs Nouri al-Maliki has given up his post as prime minister to Haider al-Abadi, state television reported Thursday a move that could end a political deadlock that plunged Baghdad into uncertainty as the country ghts a Sunni militant insurgency. The Iraqiya television network said al-Maliki has relinquished the post of prime minister. It did not elaborate. Afak television, al-Malikis private network, ran a bulletin saying al-Maliki joins the greatest men of history by giving up posts. The announcement comes ahead of an address al-Maliki is due to make later Thursday evening, according to the government. Iraqs President Fouad Massoum named al-Abadi on Monday to form the next government, but al-Maliki had until now refused to step aside. Al-Maliki has been struggling for weeks to stay for a third four-year term as prime minister amid an attempt by opponents to push him out, accusing him of monopolizing power and pursuing a ercely pro-Shiite agenda that has alienated the Sunni minority. But in a meeting of his Dawa party on Thursday evening, al-Maliki agreed to endorse al-Abadi as the next prime minister, two senior lawmakers from his State of Law parliamentary bloc Hussein al-Maliki and Khalaf Abdul-Samad told the AP. They and two other Shiite lawmakers said al-Maliki would announce his endorsement in his speech Thursday night. The two other lawmakers spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the closeddoor meeting. The lawmakers said al-Maliki also agreed to drop a suit before the constitutional court challenging al-Abadis nomination. The pressure intensied this week when his Shiite political alliance backed al-Abadi to replace him, and Massoum nominated al-Abadi to form the next government. Al-Maliki for days has refused to step aside, saying the nomination violates the constitution. Al-Maliki had grown increasingly isolated as not only erstwhile Shiite allies but also top ally Iran, the United States and the U.N.-backed al-Abadi, who has 30 days to put together a Cabinet for parliaments approval. The U.N. Security Council urged al-Abadi to work swiftly to form an inclusive government that represents all segments of the Iraqi population and that contributes to nding a viable and sustainable solution to the countrys current challenges. The U.S. and other countries have been pushing for an inclusive government that will ease anger among Sunnis, who felt mar ginalized by al-Malikis administration, helping fuel the dramatic sweep by the Islamic State extremist group over much of northern and western Iraq since June.State TV: Iraqs al-Maliki gives up post to rival SANTOS, Brazil (AP) Brazils presidential race is in stunned disarray after one of the top three contenders was killed on the campaign trail when a small plane carrying him and aides crashed into a residential area in this port city. Socialist politician Eduardo Campos and the six other people aboard the aircraft died in the accident Wednesday, which came less than two months ahead of the Oct. 4 presidential election. President Dilma Rousseff, who opinion polls say leads the race, declared three days of ofcial mourning for Campos and said she was suspending her campaign during that time. The other main candidate, Aecio Neves, also said he was putting his campaign on hold. Brazil is in mourning and reeling from a death that took the life of a promising young politician, Rousseff said in a solemn address. She said Campos had had an extremely promising future ahead. The 49-year-old scion of a powerful political family from the northeastern state of Pernambuco, Campos was a xture on the Brazilian political scene since his youth, having served as state and federal representative and also as Pernambucos governor. He had been allied with Rousseff and her Workers Party but broke away ahead of the presidential campaign. Opinion polls had said Campos was running in third place, behind Rousseff and Neves. Campos was married to his high school sweetheart and the two had ve children, the youngest of whom was born in January with Down syndrome. The candidate, four members of his campaign staff and two pilots were traveling from Rio de Janeiro to the city of Guaruja when the Cessna 560XL went down in near by Santos around 10 a.m. Aeronautical ofcials said the plane was trying to land in bad weather, although the Globo television network broadcast interviews with witnesses who said the aircraft was in ames before it crashed among apartment buildings. An investigation has been opened to determine the exact cause, Brazils aeronautical agency said. NAJAF, Iraq (AP) Abbas Mohammed Habib was born into Iraqs rapidly expanding world of the displaced. His mother Laila Ali was among tens of thousands of Shiite Turkmens driven from their homes when Islamic extremists captured the northern town of Tal Afar. Nine months pregnant, she ed with her husband and four young children, eventually squeezing into a bus for a 16-hour trip across the desert. They went an entire day without food or water. As the extremist Islamic State group plowed across northern Iraq, centuriesold communities of religious minorities some viewed as apostates by the Sunni militants ed for their lives. Christians and Yazidis headed to the north, where many found refuge in the largely autonomous Kurdish region. But the Turkmens, an ethnic group with historic ties to neighboring Turkey, said they were turned away by the Kurds, who fear that such an inux would dilute their majority and under mine their ambition of one day having an independent state. So some 50,000 Shiite Turkmens instead headed south to the holy city of Najaf, believing like so many other Iraqis that they would only be safe among those who share their faith. In Najaf they have security, for now, but little else. The local hospital provided a onesie for Abbas to wear when he was born two weeks ago but he will quickly outgrow it. The family has no other clothes or medicine, and relies on food handouts from a local charity. Abbas, his sisters and brothers are swollen with ant bites from sleeping on the oor of a mosque. Lailas husband, Mohammed Habib Elias, 35, made a decent living as an electrician back in Tal Afar, but said he is quickly running out of money and cannot nd work in Najaf. We realize that the situation will not get better soon, he said, so we have now to think about schools and renting a home. We dont know how we will afford that. The U.N. said Thursday that in recent weeks more than 66,400 displaced people have settled in Najaf, which ordinarily has a population of around 750,000. Refugees are packed into the Husseiniyahs, or Shiite prayer halls, that line the streets of the holy city.Brazils president race stunned by candidate death Displaced Iraqis escape fighting, but not hardship CAMPOS +0% financing in lieu of rebates, with approved credit, through ALL!

Complicating the dispute over the dueling missions, Ukraine said Thursday it has gained control over a key town near Luhansk city, there by giving it the means to block the presumed route that the Russian convoy would take to the city. The town, Novosvitlivka, lies about 40 kilometers (25 miles) from the border, so if the Russian trucks did enter the country, they potentially could unload somewhere other than city itself. The Russian convoy set out Thursday morning from a military depot in the southern Russian city of Voronezh where it had been parked since late Tuesday. Moscow says the convoy has 262 vehicles, including about 200 trucks carrying aid. The white-tarped trucks, some ying the red ag of Moscow and escorted by military vehicles, drove down a winding highway through sunower elds and then turned west toward the rebel-held border crossing of Izvaryne. But about 28 kilometers (17 miles) from the border, the trucks pulled off and parked in a large eld where dozens of beige tents had been set up. Drivers in matching khaki shorts and shirts piled out and appeared to be stopping for the night. The route suggested Russia has decided not to abide by a tentative agreement to deliver aid to a government-controlled border checkpoint in the Kharkiv region, where it could more easily be inspected by Ukraine and the Red Cross. Taking Novosvitlivka disrupted the last opportunity for movement between Luhansk and other territories controlled by Russian mercenaries, Ukrainian security council spokesman Andriy Lysenko told reporters. Lysenko also said that if the Russians refused to let the Red Cross inspect its cargo the movement of the convoy will be blocked with all the forces available. Ukraine suspects the convoy could be a pretext for a Russian military invasion or further support for the pro-Russia rebels it has been ghting since April.CONVOYFROM PAGE 1 how desperate many Gazans have become after the most ruinous of three bouts of major Hamas-Israel violence since the militant group overran the territory in 2007. More than 1,900 Palestinians have been killed, mostly civilians, nearly 10,000 wounded and some 250,000 displaced since ghting started July 8. Signicantly, a Hamas rally last week attracted 2,000-3,000 people, a low number compared to its routinely massive rallies, particularly considering it was held at a time when the group is at war with Israel. Hamas has ruled with an iron st since it took over Gaza, expelling the Western-backed Palestinian Authority. It does not tolerate dissent, detains critics and carries out extrajudicial executions of alleged spies for Israel. It has lled government departments with loyalists and is par ticularly intolerant of any criticism of its handling of the conict with Israel. It seeks to block unauthorized media coverage of its military wing. In almost every square and major intersection in Gaza City, giant billboards extoll the battleeld valor of Hamas ghters, their quest for martyr dom and their locally manufactured rockets. Al-Aqsa television, the organizations 24-hour news channel, tirelessly airs Hamas propaganda and reports news with a Hamas-friendly slant. The men who spoke with the AP were all friends and neighbors who live in the Abraj al-Nada, or Al-Nada Towers, a collection of apartment buildings that was hit hard by Israeli airstrikes and tank shelling on July 17 in the northern Gaza district of Beit Lahiya. Visiting their wrecked homes with their families during the current truce, they sat outside a tent or in an impromptu shelter they set up cushions and a rug under a blanket hoisted on four poles, with a small red, white and green Palestinian ag. An Israeli drone menacingly hovered over head as the men spoke.DISSENTFROM PAGE 1 The research is the rst to calculate just how much of the glacial melting can be attributed to people and the jump from about a quarter to roughly 70 percent of total glacier mass loss is signicant and concerning, said University of Alaska Fairbanks geophysicist Regine Hock, who wasnt part of the study. Over the last two decades, about 295 billion tons of ice is melting each year on average due to human causes and about 130 billion tons a year are melting because of natural causes, Marzeion calculated. Glaciers alone add to about four-tenths of an inch of sea level rise every decade, along with even bigger increases from melting ice sheets which are different than glaciers and the expansion of water with warmer temperatures. Marzeion and colleagues ran multiple computer simulations to see how much melting there would be from all causes and then did it again to see how much melting there would be if only natural causes were included. The difference is what was caused by humans. Scientists arent quite certain what natural causes started glaciers shrinking after the end of the Little Ice Age in the middle of the 19th century, but do know what are human-causes: climate change, soot, and local changes in land use. There is a sizable mar gin of error so the 69 per cent human caused can be as low as 45 percent or as high as 93 percent, but likely in the middle. This study makes perfect sense, said Pennsylvania State University glacier expert Richard Alley, who wasnt part of the research. The authors have quantied what I believe most scientists would have expected. Not all of the humancaused melting is from global warming from the burning of fossil fuels, but climate change is the biggest factor, said Ted Scambos, a scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center. The study showed that it took time for global warming and other factors to build up and cause melting. That lag effect means the world is already locked into more rapid melting from the warming that has already occurred, Marzeion and Alley said.GLACIERFROM PAGE 1 Nixons promise to ease the deep racial tensions was swiftly put to the test as demonstrators gathered again Thursday evening in the neighborhood where looters smashed and burned businesses on Sunday and police repeatedly red tear gas and smoke bombs. After a particularly violent Wednesday night, Nixon said Thursday that local police are no longer in charge of the area, although they would still be present. He said Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson was in command. The change was meant to ensure that we allow peaceful and appropriate protests, that we use force only when necessary, that we step back a little bit and let some of the energy be felt in this region appropriately, Nixon said. Ferguson will not be dened as a community that was torn apart by violence but will be known as a community that pulled together to overcome it, the governor said at a news conference in the nearby community of Normandy. Johnson, who is black, said he grew up in the area and it means a lot to me personally that we break this cycle of violence. He said he planned to keep heavily armored vehicles away from the scene and told his ofcers not to bring their tear gas masks. By late afternoon, Johnson was walking down the street with a group of more than 1,000 protesters as they chanted Hands up, dont shoot, a reference to witness accounts that described Brown as having his hands in the air when the ofcer kept ring. Johnson planned to talk to the demonstrators throughout the night. Were going to have some conversations with them and get an under standing of whats going on. Earlier Thursday, President Barack Obama appealed for peace and calm on the streets. I know emotions are raw right now in Ferguson, and there are certainly passionate differences about what has happened, Obama said, speaking from the Massachusetts island where hes on a two-week vacation. But lets remember that were all part of one American family. We are united in common values, and that includes the belief in equality under the law, respect for public order and the right to peaceful public protests. St. Louis County police spokesman Brian Schellman said ofcers on Wednesday night tossed tear gas to disperse a large crowd of protesters after some threw Molotov cocktails and rocks at ofcers. More than 10 people were arrested in Ferguson. In talking to these guys, it is scary, Schellman said of ofcers on the front lines of the protest. They hear gunshots going off, and they dont know where theyre coming from.SECURITYFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOPresident Barack Obama speaks to reporters, Thursday, in Edgartown, Mass., about developments in Iraq and the police shooting of 18-year-old MichaelBrown, in Ferguson, Mo. WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama said Thursday the humanitarian crisis atop a barren hill in northern Iraq is over, eliminating the need for a risky U.S. rescue mission. But Iraqis elsewhere face a dire threat from an advancing Islamic army, he said. Obama said the U.S. will work with other governments to provide humanitarian relief wherever we have capabilities and can effectively reach those in need, even as U.S. war planes continue a limited, defensive campaign of airstrikes. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have been driven from their homes since June as the militants seized swaths of territory in northern Iraq. A U.S. military and civilian team of 16 people spent Wednesday atop Sinjar Mountain in northern Iraq, to assess conditions and see how many Iraqis needed to be evacuated. They reported that the number of trapped Iraqis was about 4,000 far fewer than anticipated and that U.S.-supplied food and water had reached many of those in need in recent days. Obama said the U.S. had delivered 114,000 meals and 35,000 gallons of water to the Iraqis, who were faced with almost certain death at the hands of the Islamic State group if they descended the mountain and possible starvation if they stayed atop Sinjar. The bottom line is, is that the situation on the mountain has greatly improved and Americans should be very proud of our efforts, Obama said, speaking from his vacation spot in Edgartown, Mass. We broke the ISIL siege of Mount Sinjar, we helped vulnerable people reach safety and we helped save many innocent lives. ISIL refers to the militant group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or simply the Islamic State. It is an al-Qaida-inspired extremist group that controls much of northern and western Iraq and aspires to create a caliphate in Iraq and neighboring Syria. The United Nations on Wednesday declared the situation in Iraq a Level 3 Emergency a development that will allow for additional assistance to the displaced, said U.N. special representative Nickolay Mladenov, pointing to the scale and complexity of the current humanitarian catastrophe. Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, said prior to Obamas remarks that U.S. ofcials believe the number of trapped Iraqis on Sinjar is now in the neighborhood of 4,000, and that between 1,500 and 2,000 of those are locals who have no plans to leave. We believe based on our assessment of conditions on the mountain that it is much less likely that well need to continue to airdrop any more food and water, Kirby said. The last airdrop was Wednesday.Obama: No Iraq rescue; further airdrops unlikely AP PHOTOA Palestinian man inspects the damage of his at in the destroyed Nada Towers residential neighborhood in the town of Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip, Monday. aaaaaQl PF /OFF-

The Sun /Friday, August 15, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 5 NATIONAL/SCIENCE NEWS | NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFSRobin Williams wife: He had Parkinsons diseaseLOS ANGELES (AP) Robin Williams was in the early stages of Parkinsons disease and was sober at the time of his suicide, his wife said Thursday. In a statement, Susan Schneider said that Williams, 63, was struggling with depression, anxiety and the Parkinsons diagnosis when he was found dead Monday in his Northern California home. Schneider did not offer details on when the actor comedian had been diagnosed or his symptoms. Williams death shocked fans and friends alike, despite his candor about decades of struggle with substance abuse and mental health. With Parkinsons, Williams faced shouldering yet another challenge. Parkinsons disease is an incurable nervous system disorder that involves a loss of brain cells controlling movement. Tremors, sometimes starting out in just one hand, are among the early symptoms.Congressman wants to curb military surplus programWASHINGTON (AP) A Democratic congressman plans to introduce a bill to restrict a Defense Department program that provides machine guns and other surplus military equipment for free to local law enforcement agencies across the country. Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., said Thursday that the death of an unarmed teenager who was shot by a police ofcer in a St. Louis suburb highlights the need for the legislation, which has been in the works for months. The bill comes as members of Congress have called for the Justice Department to investigate the shooting of a black teen by a police ofcer in Ferguson, Mo. Police in riot gear and military garb have clashed nightly with protesters since the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown and at times have trained weapons on them from armored trucks.Battle for obscure Nevada office all about 2016LAS VEGAS (AP) Like most lieutenant governors, the No. 2 executive in Nevada doesnt have much to do most days. So why are Harry Reid and Brian Sandoval so involved in the battle over the ofce this fall? For both, the outcome in an obscure race could shape their political futures. Sandoval, the states popular Hispanic governor, is the challenger national Republicans dream of should Reid seek a sixthterm in the U.S. Senate in 2016. Should Sandoval run, Nevadas lieutenant governor would move into the governors mansion in Carson City. For a cautious, conictaverse politician like Sandoval, challenging Reid, a former boxer, legendary political brawler and the Senates majority leader, might be worth the ght only if he knows a member of his own party would take his place should he run and lose. Enter Mark Hutchison, a genial Republican state senator Sandoval recruited to run for lieutenant governor. Hell face Assemblywoman Lucy Flores, 34, a former gang member who boasts Reids backing and an unorthodox, up-from-the-streets life story Democrats hope can mobilize Nevadas hefty number of Hispanic voters. A lot of Nevadans are viewing it as a trial run for governor, GOP consultant Robert Uithoven said.Sentencing panel to weigh economic crime penaltiesWASHINGTON (AP) The federal panel that sets sentencing policy announced Thursday that it plans in the coming year to consider changes to sentencing guidelines for some white-collar crimes. The U.S. Sentencing Commission, which earlier this year reduced guideline ranges for nonviolent drug crimes, unanimously approved its latest set of priorities. The top priority will be working with Congress on reducing the scope of mandatory minimum penalties, but another goal will be measuring the fairness of sentences for fraud and other economic crimes, the commission said. The panel had been reviewing data for several years, but plans to hear more from judges, victims and others to decide whether there are ways the economic crime guidelines could work better, the commissions chair woman, Patti Saris, a feder al judge in Massachusetts, said in a statement.OSHA cites Allman film company in Ga. train crashSAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) A production company formed to make a biographical lm about singer Greg Allman was cited by federal regulators Thursday for workplace safety violations stemming from a train crash in rural Georgia that killed a camera assistant and injured six others. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration proposed $74,900 in nes against Film Allman LLC, a company incorporated in 2013 to make the movie Midnight Rider. The company was cited for two safety violations say ing it willfully put workers in danger of being struck by a live train and put them at risk of falling off a railroad bridge where they were shooting a scene.Scientists racing to test Ebola vaccines in humansWASHINGTON (AP) Scientists are racing to begin the rst human safety tests of two exper imental Ebola vaccines, but it wont be easy to prove that the shots and other potential treatments in the pipeline really work. There are no proven drugs or vaccines for Ebola, a disease so rare that its been hard to attract investments in counter measures. But the current outbreak in West Africa the largest in history is fueling new efforts to speed Ebola vaccine and drug development. The handful in the pipeline have largely been funded by government efforts, including the two vaccine candidates that are closest to human study: One developed by the U.S. government that is gearing up for early-stage tests in healthy volunteers this fall, with a second developed by the Canadian government thought to be not far behind. Initial tests typically are performed on a few dozen to 100 people, to look for warning signs of side effects and gure out a good dose not to prove that theyll actually protect people against infection with the Ebola virus. Because vaccines are given to healthy people, not those who are already sick, getting safety information before the products are used too widely is a crucial step. FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) The images are reminiscent of a war zone: Helmeted ofcers pointing weapons from armored trucks, ash grenades lighting the night sky and tear gas exploding in crowded streets. The ugly clashes between police and protesters in this St. Louis suburb have fueled a torrent of criticism and raised questions about whether the ofcers tactics are inaming the same violence they aim to suppress after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager. The repeated scenes of police ofcers wearing military-style camouage and gas masks and training their ries on unarmed civilians some holding their hands up led critics to condemn the unusual show of force, suggesting it looks more like an army trying to quell a revolution than a police department trying to keep the peace in a small suburb. Its clear what is going on in Ferguson is a complete, hyperexaggerated, hysterical response on the part of law enforcement, said Thomas Nolan, a former Boston police ofcer and criminal justice professor of the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. Its clear that there is no one in charge and no one to corral the ofcers and restrain them from engaging in an unprecedented show of brutal force against civilians. Its horrifying and shameful and a disgrace. The protests escalated late Wednesday into smoky chaos after police lobbed tear gas to repel a crowd of about 150 protesters after some had thrown Molotov cocktails and rocks at ofcers. It was the fourth straight day of street confrontations spurred by Saturdays fatal shooting of the 18-year-old by a white police ofcer. More than 60 people have been arrested since Sunday. Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said Thursday that police are trying to balance the publics right to protest with public safety, including the need to keep streets open. But he added, If rebombs are being thrown, property gets destroyed, shots get red we have to respond to deadly force. St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson told The Associated Press he was so concerned about the way Ferguson ofcers have handled the unrest that he pulled his employees out. The city sent a 24-ofcer tactical squad to help control protesters Sunday and Monday night. I was concerned about the tactics, Dotson said. I was concerned about the safety of my ofcers. The police chief said he was not being critical because he was not there, but the actions taken in Ferguson were not tactics I would use in the city of St. Louis.Police images fuel outrage in St. Louis and beyond(The Washington Post) A huge group of self-organizing robots has emerged from Harvard. But dont worry, theyre pretty tiny and quite harmless (for now). Called Kilobots, they stand on three pin-like legs and form a swarm of 1,024 to complete basic tasks, such as forming particular shapes on command. Whats exciting about these bots is that theyre self-organizing, moving in coordination like a swarm of bees or a murmuration of starlings. After being shown a 2D shape, the robots move without further direction until they form it themselves. Kilobots, described in a paper published Thursday in Science, were developed in the lab of Radhika Nagpal, the Fred Kavli Professor of Computer Science at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Back in February, her team announced a much larger robot called TERMES. TERMES works in teams, too, taking cues from the collaborative instincts of a termite colony. Termites make decisions about what to do and where to go based on the actions of their fellow bugs: Because they smell friendly chemical traces in spots where other termites have dropped mud, theyre likely to place their own loads down in the same place. After awhile, complex structures are formed even though no one has a master plan in mind. But TERMES teams were tiny, because of both the cost of building the sophisticated robots and the difculty of controlling them with such a simple algorithm. Kilobots are much cheaper to build. The new robot moves using two vibrating motors, which make it skitter on motionless legs. A simple infrared transmitter and a receiver allow the individuals to recognize others, but they have no way to see the entirety of the shape theyre forming, let alone understand it. But the bots can sense if one is going off course, or if a trafc jam forms. While their skills are rudimentary (at the moment, they still have trouble making straight lines), Nagpal believes that swarms like this will be important for the future of robotics. Increasingly, were going to see large numbers of robots working together, whether its hundreds of robots cooperating to achieve environmental cleanup or a quick disaster response, or millions of self-driving cars on our highways, she said in a statement. Understanding how to design good systems at that scale will be critical.Robots that think like the hive CAPE CANAVERAL (AP) There may be itsy-bitsy aliens among us. Scientists say seven microscopic particles collected by NASAs comet-chasing spacecraft, Stardust, appear to have originated outside our solar system. If conrmed, this would be the worlds rst sampling of contemporary interstellar dust. They are very precious particles, the team leader, physicist Andrew Westphal of the University of California, Berkeley, said in a statement Thursday. The dust collectors were exposed to what is believed to be the interstellar dust stream in the early 2000s and returned to Earth in 2006. Since then, dozens of scientists worldwide led by Westphal have examined scans of the collection panels to zero in on the particles. The team was assisted by 30,000 citizen-scientists, dubbed Dusters, who reviewed more than 1 million images in search of elusive tracks made by incoming particles. The ndings were published Thursday in the journal Science. Westphal said the suspected interstellar particles are surprisingly diverse. Some are uffy like snowakes. A few particles splatted a little when they hit the collection panels because of their speed and the fact that some ended up hitting the aluminum foils between the softer aerogel tiles meant to capture the grains. In fact, one particle believed to be following the ow of interstellar wind was vaporized because it was going so fast an estimated 10 miles per second. The dust is considered young by cosmic standards: less than 50 million to 100 million years old, the life expectancy of interstellar dust. Westphal said additional testing is needed before concluding these seven specks are truly from outside our solar system. And there may be more: Roughly half the dust-collection panels have yet to be scanned. The physicist expects to nd no more than a dozen interstellar dust specks in all, however, a tiny fraction of the amount of comet matter gathered by Stardust. More than 50 grains embedded in the Stardust collectors were deemed to be debris from the spacecraft itself. NASA launched Stardust in 1999 to collect debris from Comet Wild-2. The Stardust capsule parachuted back to Earth, landing in the Utah desert seven years later.Specks returned from space may be alien visitors AP PHOTOThis undated image provided by the journal Science via Stardust shows the view of a dust particle impact on a foil collector.

Last weeks applications jumped to a six-week high, but analysts said the broader trend is toward an improving labor mar ket with fewer layoffs. There were more jobs open in June than at any time in more than 13 years. And July was the sixth-straight month that the U.S. added more than 200,000 net new jobs a streak not seen since 1997. The four-week moving average for jobless claims increased 2,000 to 295,750.Walmart cuts profit forecast amid slow sales, health costsNEW YORK (Bloomberg) Walmart Stores Inc., the worlds largest retailer, reported stagnant samestore sales and cut its earnings forecast for the year, hurt by higher health care costs and slow trafc at its supercenters. Earnings for the year will now be $4.90 to $5.15 a share, down from a previous range of as much as $5.45, the Bentonville, Ark.-based company said Thursday in a statement. Sales at U.S. Walmart and Sams Club stores open at least 12 months were little changed last quarter, which ended Aug. 1. Chief Executive Ofcer Doug McMillon, who took the post in February, is struggling to revive U.S. growth in the face of a slow economic recovery. The retailer hasnt posted a same-store sales gain for six quarters.Eurozone recovery grinds to halt amid Ukraine fearFRANKFURT, Germany (AP) Well, that didnt last long. After four quarters of meager growth, the fragile economic recovery in the 18-country eurozone creaked to a halt in the second quarter. Growth was zero. After only 0.2 percent in the rst quarter. Now who will get out and push? The European Central Bank, with a fur ther monetary stimulus? Or governments in France and Italy, which have dragged their heels in making their economies more business-friendly? Either or both could help. Especially if the Ukraine crisis mushrooms with a Russian invasion that would scare off business investment even more and extend one bad quarter into an outright recession. NEW YORK (Bloomberg) U.S. stocks rose Thursday, sending the Standard & Poors 500 index to a two-week high, as speculation the crisis in Ukraine wont escalate overshadowed weaker-than-estimated economic employment data. Kohls added 3.3 per cent to a four-month high after quarterly results beat estimates. Walmart Stores gained 0.5 percent after reporting stagnant same-store sales and lowering its prot forecast, while Cisco Systems declined 2.6 percent after forecasting little to no sales growth. Warren Buffetts Berkshire Hathaways Class A shares traded above $200,000 for the rst time. The S&P 500 added 0.4 percent to 1,955.18, the highest since July 30. The index has advanced 1.2 percent this week. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 61.78 points, or 0.4 percent, to 16,713.58. About 4.8 billion shares changed hands on U.S. exchanges, the slowest day since July 3. The Nasdaq composite rose 18.87 points, or 0.4 percent, to 4,453. Equity futures and European stocks erased earlier losses after President Vladimir Putin said Russia will do every thing it can to stop the conict in eastern Ukraine. Stocks had slumped after data showed the euro areas recovery unexpectedly stalled in the second quarter. Prospects of the euro-regions economy slipping back into recession have fueled speculation the European Central Bank may boost stimulus measures, while U.S. economic strength has created concern that the Federal Reserve may be forced to act on rates sooner than anticipated. The U.S. central bank remains on pace to wind down its monthly bond purchases in October. Fed Chair Janet Yellen has said ofcials will keep the benchmark rate low for a considerable time after the bond buying ends. The S&P 500 reached a record on July 24 before sliding as much as 3.9 percent as President Barack Obama authorized air strikes against militants in Iraq and concern grew that fighting in Ukraine would disrupt world trade. The gauge closed 1.7 percent below its all-time high. A report Wednesday showed retail sales were little changed in July, the worst performance in six months, as car demand slowed and tepid wage growth restrained U.S. consumers.US stocks advance \ LAIO O

But with the sides demands still seemingly irreconcilable, that optimism may be premature and a deal not so close in the making. Israel and Hamas are observing a ve-day cease-re which began at midnight Wednesday, in an attempt to allow talks between the sides in Cairo to continue. The negotiations are meant to secure a substantive end to the monthlong war and draw up a roadmap for the coastal territory, which has been hard-hit in the ghting. Israeli ofcials have largely kept quiet about the negotiations. But militant groups represented in Cairo said progress was being made toward a deal a stark turnaround from earlier posturing. The war is now behind us, and the chances for an agreement on a lasting cease-re are encouraging, Ziad al-Nakhaleh, deputy leader of the Islamic Jihad militant group, told The Associated Press. Though we didnt get all that we wanted, there was progress here and there. Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev would not comment Thursday on the Cairo talks. Beyond demands for a seaport and airport, Hamas is also seeking an end to a crippling blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt in 2007, when Hamas seized control of the coastal strip. The blockade has greatly limited the movement of Palestinians in and out of the territory of 1.8 million people. It has also restricted the ow of goods into Gaza and blocked virtually all exports. Israel says the closure is necessary to prevent arms smuggling, and ofcials are reluctant to make any concessions that would allow Hamas to declare victory. Israel, meanwhile, is demanding that Hamas be disarmed, or at the very least, be prevented from re-arming, a term that is a virtual non-starter for the militant group. Hamas has recovered from previous rounds of violence with Israel, including a major threeweek air and ground operation in January 2009 and another weeklong air offensive in 2012. It still has an arsenal of several thousand rockets, some with long ranges and relatively heavy payloads. The sides are studying an Egyptian proposal which calls for easing parts of the Israeli blockade of Gaza, bringing some relief to the territory. But the proposal leaves the key areas of disagreement, including Hamas demand for a full lifting of the blockade and Israeli calls for Hamas to disarm, to later negotiations. On Wednesday, as the head of the Palestinian delegation Azzam al-Ahmad announced the cease-re had been extended for an additional ve days, he also noted that there had been signicant progress. But, highlighting the devilin-the-details nature of the negotiations, he also said disagreements remained over wording regarding security arrangements, reconstruction efforts for the Gaza Strip and the permissible shing area.Palestinians voice optimism as Gaza truce holds SEOUL, South Korea (AP) Pope Francis called Thursday for peace and unity on the war-divided Korean Peninsula and for both sides to avoid fruitless criticisms and shows of force, offering a message of reconciliation at the start of a ve-day visit to South Korea that received a stark response from the North. North Korea red three short-range projectiles into the sea off its eastern coast about an hour before Francis landed in Seoul, and two others a short while later. North Korea has conducted several such tests this year, and it also has a long history of making sure it is not forgotten during high-prole events in the South. Neither Francis nor South Korean President Park Geun-hye referred to the rings in their speeches at Seouls presidential palace, and the Vatican spokesman sought to downplay the incident altogether, say ing he wasnt even sure the pope had been told. In the rst speech of his rst trip to Asia, Francis told Park, government ofcials and regional diplomats that peace required justice and that justice in turn requires forgiveness, cooperation and mutual respect. He said diplomacy must be encouraged so that listening and dialogue replace mutual recriminations, fruitless criticisms and displays of force. We cannot become discouraged in our pur suit of these goals which are for the good not only of the Korean people but of the entire region and the whole world, he said, in the rst English-language speech of his ponticate. Usually Francis speaks in Italian or his native Spanish, but the Vatican said he would deliver at least four speeches in English on the trip to accommodate his Asian audiences. North Koreas apparent test ring was conducted from Wonsan on its east coast, according to a South Korean Defense Ministry ofcial who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing ofce rules. It wasnt immediately clear what the projectiles were. North Korea has expressed anger over annual military drills between the United States and South Korea, which it says are invasion preparations. A new round of drills, which Seoul and Washington call routine and defensive, is expected to start in coming days. As he arrived at an airport just south of Seoul on the rst papal visit in a quarter century, the pope shook hands with four relatives of victims of a South Korean ferry sinking that killed more than 300 and two descendants of Korean martyrs who died rather than renounce their faith. Francis on Saturday will beatify 124 Korean martyrs who founded the church on the peninsula in the 18th century, hoping to give South Koreas vibrant and growing church new models for holiness and evangelization.Pope to Koreas: Avoid fruitless shows of force AP PHOTOPope Francis waves from a car after his arrival in Seoul, South Korea, Thursday. 1174ONLY ONMonBifngsr :.,..87!61 6350' 61P54O J 8a4i2 inneapoka 'Toronto-. 84/69 '-,, 72/54DenortiSanFrancisco 705 New York73/58, Chicago 003f \ 3 Waihi gtonDenver 81!63Los And ka1 81/60 Kansas City ..9e 87/70AtlantaEI Paso90171 uahua Houstonk 87/61x93/76 Miami 0 Monterrey 98/74R380 50 100150 200 300 500'1 Trees :> Grasso,o.

The 55-year-old, who has worked for Major League Baseball in roles with ever-increasing authority since 1998, will take over from the 80-year-old Selig on Jan. 25. Its a generational change much like the NBA under took when Adam Silver, then 51, replaced 71-year-old David Stern as commissioner in February. And like Silver, he was his bosss pick. Manfred beat out Boston Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner in the rst contested vote for a new commissioner in 46 years. The third candidate, MLB Executive Vice President of Business Tim Brosnan, dropped out just before the start of balloting. I am tremendously honored by the condence that the owners showed in me today, Manfred said. I have very big shoes to ll. Selig has led baseball since September 1992, rst as chairman of the sports executive council following Fay Vincents forced resignation and as commissioner since July 1998. After announcing his intention to retire many times only to change his mind, he said last September that he really, truly planned to leave in January 2015.

BALLOT | 3WERNER Longo powers RaysBy SCHUYLER DIXONASSOCIATED PRESSARLINGTON, Texas Evan Longoria homered and drove in three runs, Jake Odorizzi helped extend Tampa Bays impressive road pitching streak with seven strong innings, and the Rays beat the Texas Rangers 6-3 Thursday night. Longorias team-leading 15th homer was a two-run shot that gave the Rays a 6-2 lead in the fth. Logan Forsythe had a two-run homer, his fth, to put the Rays in front to stay in the second. Odorizzi (9-9) struck out seven to help give the Rays their AL-record 18th consecutive road game without allowing more than three runs. Robbie Ross (2-5) came up from Triple-A Round Rock to ll in for Texas ace Yu Darvish, who is sidelined with elbow inammation. The lefthander gave up six runs in 413 innings. Odorizzi was the starter the last time Tampa Bay gave up more than three runs the last home game before the 10-game trip that just ended with the Rays taking three of four from the Rangers. The right-hander allowed ve runs in a 7-5 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Aug. 3.

Thats what righthander Austin Pruitt said after it happened to the Charlotte Stone Crabs on Thursday night. Five Palm Beach Cardinals hitters worked walks and four came around to score as they took the series at Charlotte Sports Park with a 5-4 win. You dont know which run is going to win a game, Pruitt said. You want to make them earn the hits and not give them a free pass to first base. You got to go out there, throw strikes and battle. Stone Crabs manager Jared Sandberg said Pruitt was impressive on Thursday, and for the most part, he was. The right-hander allowed one hit while striking out six, and he retired the Cardinals in order in five of his seven innings. The only real damage against him came in the second inning. Pruitt walked Luke Voit and Anthony Garcia to lead off the frame, and both came around to score after a single from David Washington and RBI groundouts from Mason Katz and Jimmy Bosco. Pruitt retired 16 of the last 17 batters he faced before exiting after the seventh inning.

Over and over in the past few months, across the country, the same simple sequence has unfolded: Famous person ner vously addresses a camera, then has a bucket of ice water poured over his or her head. The person gasps, shivers a bit, collects himself and challenges three people to do the same in the next 24 hours or donate money to charity. Its all over social media, all in the name of raising money for charity, most recently focusing on fundraising for research for amy otrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), an incurable neurodegenerative disease. ALS is better known as Lou Gehrigs disease, for the baseball player who died from it in 1941, and athletes are helping to raise awareness of the disease, which affects about 30,000 Americans, including about 1,500 in Florida. Its for a great cause, said Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith, part of a chain of at least seven Bucs ice baths Thursday, his a tribute to O.J. Brigance, a linebacker who played for him with the Rams in 2001-02 and was diagnosed with ALS in 2007. Anything you can do with research to help get rid of a deadly disease is good. You want to keep it going, bringing attention to something that needs attention. Since July 29, the video campaign had helped raise more than $7 million nationally as of Wednesday, compared to $1.12 million during the same period last year, the ALS Association said.

The sophomore didnt play after graduating from Port Charlotte High School in 2010. His family relocated, and after settling in to his new home he resumed football. He played offensive right tackle for the semipro Vermont Ice Storm, which he said had players from their teens to 40s. I loved it, he said. Its not the highest level of competition. Its a different level, he said. Youre playing to play. Its all for the love the game. It rejuvenated my love for football. Though it was a good experience, Hanson said he starting contacting NCAA Division III programs. Baldwin Wallace (Ohio) responded to him rst and was one of two schools he seriously considered. Last year he played and started for the junior varsity and dressed for some varsity games. It was a good way to start, he said. I was happy I worked my way into starting. This season he is listed as the backup right tackle to a senior. Hes going to be ghting for a position, coach John Snell said. He hasnt won a job yet. He seems to be very mature. Hes very respectful. He listens to the coaches. He wants to get better, and hes going to get better. The team has multiple new assistant coaches on its offensive side, including line coach Ryan Crow. Players have been learning new procedures and new names for plays, Hanson said. In addition, Hanson has been training much more diligently to be game ready for an offense that ranked fth among 10 Ohio Athletic Conference teams last year. He was a little rusty, Snell said. Hopefully, hell be in much better shape. The 275-pound Hanson is listed at 6-foot-3, the tallest among the linemen. Im running more, lifting harder, he said. Im a lot stronger. Im becoming more coordinated and more exible. The team practices in the complex where the Cleveland Browns formerly played, and Hanson said the players also wear shoulder pads that were worn by Browns players. In its regular season nale, Baldwin Wallace travels to Heidelberg University, where North Port High School graduates Corbin Rourke and Joshua Pollard are freshmen fullbacks.Contact Barbara Boxleitner at BKLE3@aol.comBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENTPort Charlotte alumnus ghts for varsity spot at Baldwin Wallace HANSON | GOLF SCOREBOARDPGA TourWYNDHAM CHAMPIONSHIP At Sedgeeld Country Club Greensboro, N.C.

Lexi Thompson and South Koreas Meena Lee shot 6-under-66 on Thursday to share the rst-round lead in the LPGA Championship, the fourth major championship of the season. Thompson, the Kraft Nabisco winner in April for her rst major title, and Lee each made eight birdies and a pair of bogeys at Monroe Golf Club to nish a stroke ahead of ahead of Brittany Lincicome, Colombias Lisa McCloskey and Canadian rookie Jennifer Kirby. Shanshan Feng of China, the tournament winner two years ago, was tied for sixth at 68 with 2010 champion Cristie Kerr. Catriona Matthew of Scotland, runner-up a year ago to South Koreas Inbee Park, was tied at 69 with seven other players. Park was at even-par 72, one shot better than Paula Creamer and Karrie Webb. Top-ranked Stacy Lewis, a three-time winner this year, started on the back nine and birdied three of the rst ve holes, then faltered with three straight bogeys before the turn. She nished at 71. Villegas goes low in return: Camilo Villegas opened with a 7-under 63 to take a one-stroke lead in the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C., the final event before the PGA Tours playoffs. North Carolina natives Webb Simpson and William McGirt shot 64, and Scott Langley, Heath Slocum, Paul Casey, Andrew Loupe and Martin Laird were another stroke back at Sedgefield. Villegas, who hasnt won since 2010, spent the past week back in his native Colombia for a little recharge leaving his clubs in Florida. Yang rallies for upset: South Koreas Gunn Yang advanced to the U.S. Amateur quarterfinals, birdieing the final three holes to beat top-ranked Ollie Schniederjans 1 up at Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek, Ga. Yang, a San Diego State sophomore making his first appearance in the tournament, was down a hole against Schniederjans, a senior at Georgia Tech, after 15 holes. Yang won the par-16th with a 6-foot putt, took the par-3 17th with another 6-footer and finished off the hometown favorite with a tap-in on the par-5 18th. Bjorn starts quickly: Danish star Thomas Bjorn shot a 5-under 66 for a share of the first-round lead in the Made in Denmark tournament in Aalborg, Denmark, boosting his chances of securing a spot on Europes Ryder Cup. The 43-year-old Bjorn has 15 European Tour victories. Chiles Felipe Aguilar and Wales Bradley Dredge also shot 66. GOLF ROUNDUP 11H ___F y1II1

The Sun /Friday, August 15, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 CARDINALS 5, STONE CRABS 4 HITTER OF THE GAME Tyler Goeddel, Stone Crabs: The third baseman provided the biggest blow in the Stone Crabs comeback attempt, ripping a two-run double down the left-field line in the eighth inning to extend his hitting streak to five games. PITCHER OF THE GAME Nick Petree, Cardinals: Johnny Fields solo home run proved to be the only damage against Petree, who gave up one run on six hits while striking out four over seven innings. KEY INNING Eighth: The Cardinals scored three runs on two walks, two hits and a passed ball in the top half of the frame, but Charlotte nearly came back to tie it in the bottom half with three runs on two singles, a double and a hit-by-pitch. QUOTE OF THE DAY Goeddel: Its getting near the end, so its tough not to be looking (at the standings) a little more and a little more. But its something you try not to worry about. Take it one game at a time.

I thought it was another good start for him, Sandberg said. He kind of unraveled, (started) pulling off the ball in the second to let up those two runs, but he made a nice adjustment and then cruised the rest of the time. Pruitts exit gave the Cardinals a chance to add to their total. Charlotte reliever Zach Cooper walked Bosco to lead off the eighth and allowed him to score on Ildermo Vargas single back to the mound. Cooper issued his second walk of the frame to third baseman Bruce Caldwell, and both Vargas and Caldwell came around to score on an RBI single from Voit and a passed ball, respectively, to increase the lead to 5-1. The two runs charged to Cooper were the first he allowed since a July 9 outing against the Jupiter Hammerheads. The righthander had given up one run in his last 12 innings entering Thursdays game. The leadoff walk definitely hurt, and he just couldnt put it away with two outs, Sandberg said. Hes not one to make excuses; he just didnt get the job done. Weve seen a dominant side of him so far, and that was just a little hiccup. The Stone Crabs nearly erased the four-run deficit in the bottom of the eighth. Third baseman Patrick Leonard hit an RBI single and designated hitter Tyler Goeddel followed it with a two-run double to cut the Cardinals lead to one. But Palm Beach reliever Chris Perry struck out right fielder Ariel Soriano with runners on the corners in the eighth inning, and he struck out the side in the ninth to earn his fifth save of the season. Center fielder Johnny Field provided the Stone Crabs first run of the game on a sixth-inning solo home run off Cardinals starter Nick Petree (seven innings, six hits, one run). Field is 6 for his last 14 with two home runs and four RBIs. Weve been playing really good lately, definitely. But we ran into a team that has also been playing really good recently in Palm Beach, Goeddel said. Both teams, I think for the most part, played pretty well in the series. I think, going forward, we can learn from these games. Hopefully the result will be a little different next time.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-203-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com.CRABSFROM PAGE 1 412-hour session were not be divulged, said Manfred was elected on approximately the sixth ballot. The initial vote was 20-10 for Manfred, three short of the required three-quarters majority. His total increased to 21 on the second and 22 on the third. While teams put written ballots into envelopes, keeping their choices secret, from team ofcial speeches it was evident that Tampa Bays Stuart Sternberg and Milwaukees Mark Attanasio likely switched, the person said. Manfreds total dropped to 20, then increased to 22 before a dinner break. He got the needed 23rd vote on the next, appar ently from Washington. Owners then made the nal vote unanimous. The person said it appeared Arizona, Boston, the Chicago White Sox, Cincinnati, the Los Angeles Angels, Oakland and Toronto had been the nal holdouts. White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf and Toronto president Paul Beeston spoke out strongly against Manfred, the person said. Angels owner Arte Moreno joined Reinsdorf in leading Werners support. While Rob may not have been my initial choice for commissioner, the conclusion of a very good process was to name Rob as the person best positioned to help baseball endure and grow even stronger for the next generation of fans, Reinsdorf said in a statement. Todays decision was reached by 30 owners voting separately but speaking, in the end, with one voice. Manfred started with baseball in the late 1980s as an outside counsel in labor negotiations and was hired by Selig as executive vice president for labor relations and human resources in 1998. He received an expanded role of executive vice president of economics and league affairs in 2012 and last September was promoted to chief operating ofcer, becoming the likely heir apparent. He helped lead negotiations for baseballs last three labor contracts and the joint drug agreement that was instituted in 2002. In the last contested election, in 1968-69, owners turned to their outside labor lawyer, Bowie Kuhn. The 55-year-old Manfred, whose term was not specied, grew up in Rome, N.Y. about an hours drive from the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. BALLOTFROM PAGE 1 Myers nears return to RaysWil Myers could be back in the Rays lineup within the next week. Manager Joe Maddon said Myers, recovering from a broken right wrist, has done well enough in his first three rehab games at Triple-A Durham that he could rejoin the Rays during the series with Detroit that starts Tuesday at the Trop. Hes getting closer, not far off, Maddon said. The big thing is timing. .... Primarily as soon as he feels like hes seeing the fastball well, hell be ready. Myers, out since late May, is 4 for 9 with a grand slam and three walks as the DH. He was off Thursday and is schedule to play in the outfield tonight and Saturday. David DeJesus (left hand) is set to start a rehab assignment. DeJesus, out since mid-June, will work out at the Trop today, play for the Gulf Coast League Rays on Sunday, work out again at the Trop Sunday then join the Stone Crabs on Monday. Marc Topkin, Tampa Bay Times season, a two-run shot down the line in left that pulled the Rangers within 4-2. Longoria went deep to just about the same spot the next inning. Jake McGee pitched a perfect ninth for his 13th save in 14 chances, getting the Rays within three games of the major league record for consecutive road games with three runs or fewer allowed held by the 1908 Cubs. Ross started the season in the Texas rotation after spending two years as a reliever. He struck out the side in the rst but then looked a lot like the pitcher who was sent back to the bullpen in May not long after giving up 30 runs 23 earned in 2623 innings over ve starts. The homer by Forsythe, who had three hits, came after Yunel Escobar reached with two outs on an ineld hit when third baseman Adrian Beltre barehanded the slow roller but threw wide to rst. Ross was gone after four straight hitters reached in the fth.NOTESAn MRI showed that Yu Darvishs elbow inammation is not a long-term concern, but theres no timetable for his return. He will miss at least two starts and will resume throwing when the tightness eases. ... Tampa Bay returns home to face the New York Yankees in the rst of 32 consecutive games against teams currently in playoff contention. RAYS 6, RANGERS 3Tampa Bay AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

Toles is expected to spend seven to 10 days working out with the GCL Rays to get back into baseball shape before being ready to play in a game, most likely with the GCL team. Charlotte manager Jared Sandberg said theres still a chance Toles could rejoin the Stone Crabs before the end of the season. Toles was not made available for comment. He just wants to play baseball, said Sandberg, who spoke to Toles on Thursday for the rst time since he left the team. Hes happy to be back, happy to be working out. He just wants to play baseball. Thats what he said. Toles was hitting just a little bit at home in Decatur, Ga., while he was away from the team, Sandberg said, but he wasnt doing any other baseball work. Toles left the team four days after being removed from a May 25 game in Bradenton for the way he acted making a play in center eld. Sandberg announced on May 27 that Toles would be benched for a few games following that incident, and Toles left the team two days after that. Sandberg and Rays director of minor league operations Mitch Lukevics have both said his absence had nothing to do with that incident, and Sandberg said Tuesday that he hopes everybody can respect his privacy. The Rays No. 6 prospect hit .261 with a home run, 11 extra-base hits, 13 RBIs and 18 stolen bases in 46 games with the Stone Crabs this season. He was named the Rays Minor League Player of the Year in 2013 after batting .326 with 57 RBIs and 62 stolen bases for Class-A Bowling Green. Hes an exciting player with tremendous tools. A guy that is a game-changer, Sandberg said. If I had his skill set, I would be looking forward to getting back on the baseball eld as well.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com.Toles reports to Port CharlotteBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER FLORIDA STATE LEAGUE: CharlotteHe returns after lengthy absenceCHICAGO Team USA is hoping for the best after watching another player get helped off the court with an injury. Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins hurt his right knee when he got tangled with Anthony Davis after both big men hit the oor going after a loose ball during a scrimmage toward the end of Thursdays practice. The World Cup of Basketball is just two weeks away. Denitely scary, not just the fact that he went down, but the fact that I actually was the one who dove on him, Davis said. I kind of feel bad and I hope hes ne because he really wants to be here. He really wants to play. Cousins watched the end of the scrimmage with a bag of ice on his knee as trainers milled around his table. He took a few ginger steps while players were coming off the oor. Were hopeful its just a bruise or a slight sprain, but we wont really know until he gets his MRI, said Jerry Colangelo, the managing director of USA Basketball. We hope it turns out to be nothing, but more precautionary than anything else. But nothing denitive until we get the results. It was the Americans rst workout since Paul George broke his right leg in a gruesome injury that occurred during an intrasquad scrimmage on Aug. 1 in Las Vegas. Kevin Durant also withdrew from the team last week. Colangelo said he spoke with the team about Georges injury. I think time heals, Colangelo said after practice. What took place after a few days is that in checking with all the players, they were all in, looking forward to coming to Chicago and everyone showed and they played really hard today, so were pleased. The U.S. is expected to practice again on Friday, and hosts Brazil in an exhibition at the United Center on Saturday night. Colangelo said Cousins likely wouldnt play for the next couple of days. The roster is at 16 players after Rudy Gay joined the pool following Durants departure. It has to be cut to 12 before the World Cup begins on Aug. 30.Depleted Team USA might lose CousinsBy JAY COHENASSOCIATED PRESS BASKETBALL: Team USAKings center injures knee AP PHOTOU.S. National Team player DeMarcus Cousins lays on the court and is looked over by trainers after injuring his knee during practice Thursday in Chicago.

Scherzer (14-4) outdueled Francisco Liriano while coming up one strikeout shy of his career high. Scherzer, who has struck out 10 or more batters six times this season and 24 times in his career, didnt give up a run on three hits in eight innings. J.D. Martinez drove in Detroits rst two runs with a solo home run and a bases-loaded walk. Nick Castellanos added a two-run single for the Tigers, who have won two straight following a fourgame losing streak Pinch hitter Gaby Sanchez hit a two-run homer off reliever Phil Coke in the ninth for the Pirates. Dodgers 6, Braves 4: In Atlanta, Los Angeles improved to 40-26 away from home with a victory that completed a 6-3 trip. The Braves left two runs in scoring position when Kensley Jansen struck out B.J. Upton to end the game. The Dodgers havent had a losing road trip all season. Royals 7, Athletics 3: In Kansas City, Mo., Nori Aokis two-run triple in the fifth inning put Kansas City up to stay in its win over Oakland. The Royals, who have won 11 of 13 in August, batted around in a five-run seventh. Aoki drove a first pitch down the right-field line to score rookie Christian Colon, who had three hits, and Jarrod Dyson. Brewers 6, Cubs 2: In Chicago, right-hander Mike Fiers scattered three hits and struck out 14 over six shutout innings as Milwaukee salvaged a series split. Fiers (2-1) picked up his second win since last Saturdays call-up from Triple-A Nashville as he scattered three hits and walked just one. Scooter Gennett doubled in two first-inning runs, Khris Davis homered and scored twice while Elian Herrera went 3-for-4 with an RBI and run scored. Nationals 4, Mets 1: In New York, Adam LaRoche and Bryce Harper each hit two-run homers and Stephen Strasburg threw seven innings for a rare road win as Washington completed another Citi Field sweep of New York. The Nationals have won 11 straight games at Citi Field against the Mets dating to June 30, 2013. It is the longest winning streak by a Mets opponent in New York in team history. The Atlanta Braves won 10 straight at Shea Stadium from June 12, 1991 through Sept. 1, 1992. Marlins 5, D-backs 4, 10 innings: In Miami, Marcell Ozuna doubled home Garrett Jones with the winning run in the 10th inning for Miami. Ozunas line-drive to left-center came off Bradin Hagens (0-1), who was making his major league debut. Hagens got a double play to escape the ninth, but Jones reached on a leadoff walk in the 10th and scored two batters later. Red Sox 9, Astros 4: In Boston, Dustin Pedroias two-run double capped a seven-run sixth inning that sent Boston to its fourth consecutive win. Pedroia finished with three hits, Daniel Nava had two doubles and David Ortiz added two singles as the Red Sox improved to 8-0 in Fenway Park against the Astros. Cardinals 4, Padres 3: In St. Louis, pinch-hitter Jon Jay delivered a two-run double in the eighth inning and right fielder Shane Robinson threw out the potential tying run at the plate in the ninth to help St. Louis. Jhonny Peralta hit an early two-run homer for the Cardinals, who moved ahead of Pittsburgh into second place in the NL Central. MLB ROUNDUP BOSTON Roger Clemens took advantage of his induction into the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame to throw batting practice to two of his sons on the eld at Fenway Park. Then, it was off to Chicago to see another son play in a high school All-America game at Wrigley Field. But at no point in his busy schedule, the seven-time Cy Young winner said, does he spend any time worrying about whether he will eventually gain election to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. If it happens, it happens. Its not going to change me as a person, Clemens said at Fenway on Thursday morning. Its not why I played the game. When I was out there and I was doing it, I did it to the best of my ability, and I worked my tail off. Clemens was inducted into the Red Sox hall during a lunchtime ceremony along with Pedro Martinez, Nomar Garciaparra and longtime broadcaster Joe Castiglione. They were recognized on the eld during a 20-minute ceremony that included highlights and prerecorded speeches played on the center-eld scoreboard before Thursday nights game against Houston. Clemens received a polite applause from the crowd, while Garciaparra and Martinez were given rousing ovations. Wrigley rooftop owners sue: In Chicago, the owners of eight rooftop clubs overlooking Wrigley Field have filed a lawsuit to overturn Chicagos approval of the Cubs plan to revamp the century-old ballpark. The lawsuit filed Thursday in Cook County Circuit Court asks a judge to reverse the citys action, saying it broke its own rules and deprived them of their property rights without due process. The lawsuit names the Commission on Chicago Landmarks and its members, as well as the city. Darvish gets good news: Texas ace Yu Darvish has mild right elbow inflammation that isnt a long-term concern, although there is no timetable for his return to the Texas rotation. Nathan apologizes for gestures: Joe Nathan apologized for making two obscene gestures toward frustrated Detroit Tigers fans after his outing on Wednesday. Nathan, the teams closer, was booed when he walked the first two batters he faced in the ninth inning but did not allow a run in the 8-4 victory against visiting Pittsburgh. Hearing it the whole inning just got the better of me and my frustration came out, said Nathan.Red Sox add Clemens to Hall MLB NOTEBOOKFROM WIRE REPORTS ......................................................................... ......

The Sun /Friday, August 15, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 5 TURIN, N.Y. They came to grieve and share stories about Kevin Ward Jr., who was born into a racing family and buried with racing ags in his casket. A high school auditorium overowed with friends, family and racing enthusiasts Thursday in tribute to the 20-year-old driver, who was hit on a dirt track by a car driven by NASCAR champion Tony Stewart. With Ward in an open casket piled with orange owers, his familys team colors, mourners wept and laughed at favorite stories about the boy who began racing not long after he began walking. The 90-minute service was held at the South Lewis Senior High School to accommodate crowds from this tight racing community in central New York. Even if he had rough day, he always had a smile, a tearful Dylan Swiernick said of his best friend and car-obsessed buddy. We were just two small-town boys trying to make it in the big world. He was always working on something. It was unbelievable how smart he was. He never got down on himself when things werent going his way. Ward, a 2012 South Lewis graduate, was bur ied in his nearby hometown of Port Leyden, 55 miles from Syracuse. He was an amazing sprint car driver and had a family like no other, cousin Amanda Ward said in a eulogy. We used to tell him before every race, Drive it like you stole it. He never let us down. Sister Kayla Herring said the orange and white lapel ribbons worn by family and friends were to signify that the team colors would remain bright, even in the darkest times. A recording of the Dixie Chicks singing Godspeed (Sweet Dreams) was played at the request of Wards mother. After the service, as Wards casket was taken to the hearse for the short trip to the cemetery, mourners let loose helium balloons in orange, white and black. Ward died Saturday night at a track 140 miles away in Canandaigua, where Stewart was riding a day before the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen. Stewart did not race at Watkins Glen and said Thursday he will not race this weekend at Michigan. The accident touched off debates as video of the crash circulated online, with fans questioning whether Stewart, known for his hot temper, tried to send his own message by buzzing Ward, or whether Ward recklessly stepped onto a dark track clad in black. No charges have been led, but Ontario County Sheriffs deputies are still investigating. Ward grew up in a racing family and started racing go-carts at age 4. He moved on to sprint cars and was Empire Super Sprint racing rookie of the year in 2012. He was one of a small, tight group of drivers that traveled to races around New York state and parts of Canada and Pennsylvania. Racing and working on cars in his fathers shop, Westward Painting Co. of Lyons Falls, were his double love, Wards father told the PostStandard of Syracuse this week.Mourners praise their small-town boyBy MARY ESCHASSOCIATED PRESS AUTO RACING: Tony Stewart Stewart to skip Michigan raceCHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Tony Stewart will not race Sunday at Michigan International Speedway, skipping a second consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup race since striking and killing a driver in a dirt-track race at a small New York track. Stewart announced the deci sion in a statement Thursday. His plans for the rest of the season have not been determined. Jeff Burton will drive Stewarts No. 14 Chevrolet in Michigan. The three-time NASCAR champion is winless and 21st in the Cup standings this season. He needs a victory in one of the final four races to have a chance to become eligible for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. | QUICK HITSROBREDO UPSETS DJOKOVIC IN OHIOMASON, Ohio (AP) Tommy Robredo knows a memorable match when he wins one. He did so Thursday, beating top-ranked Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic 7-6 (6), 7-5 in the round of 16 at the Western & Southern Open. The 16th-seeded Spaniard beat a topranked player for the second time in his career. He edged Lleyton Hewitt in the 2003 French Open. When I nish my career, and when I will be sitting at home and talking with friends, I will remember days like this, Robredo said. Djokovic, who has never won the Cincinnati-area event, dropped the rst set after ghting back from a 6-3 decit in the tiebreaker. Earlier, Andy Murray fought off two match points and edged John Isner, 7-6 (3), 6-4, 7-6 (2) before a standing-room-only crowd on the grandstand court next to Center Court.SWIMMINGVan Dyken-Rouen heads home: Olympic swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen left the hospital feeling ,000 times better after two months of rehabilitation in Englewood, Colo. She rolled out the hospital door Thursday the same one she was brought in through on a stretcher in June. At Craig Hospital, Van DykenRouen learned how to drive with hand controls, dress herself and pick things off the floor. She also went boating and visited the zoo. Van Dyken-Rouen was left paralyzed just below the waist in an all-terrain vehicle crash on June 6 in Arizona. Shes ready to return home to Arizona, but will remain in Colorado until September. In Berlin, Ferry Weertmann of the Netherlands used a strong finish to win gold in the mens 10-kilometer open water race at the European Swimming Championship. Isabelle Haerle of Germany won the womens 5K event.JUDICIARYHernandez excused from hearing: Former New England player Aaron Hernandez was excused from a pre-trial hearing in his double homicide case in Boston.

He took it all in stride, though, saying he hoped one day an athlete coming out would not be such big news.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 15, 2014 year ago. Who else has done the ice bucket challenge? NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, Jon Gruden, several Lightning play ers, Rays pitcher Grant Balfour and even Rays mascot Raymond, among many others. The Bucs three kicking specialists punter Michael Koenen and kickers Connor Barth and Pat Murray took simultaneous ice baths Tuesday and challenged Smith, who got his Thursday and challenged Bucs vice president Bryan Glazer. Its been great. It needs to get the exposure it deserves, said a soaked Glazer, who then challenged former Bucs star Ronde Barber and rookie receiver Mike Evans. After practice, Bucs stars Gerald McCoy, Lavonte David and Evans had ice-bucket treatments, with more challenges issued to more teammates, showing how quickly the movement can spread. It started in June with participants, including pro golfers, doing it for the charity of their choice. ALS became a focus last month when former Boston College baseball player Pete Frates, 29, and fellow ALS sufferer Pat Quinn liked the idea and posted their challenges online. A Boston TV station ran a piece on a Bruins hockey player accepting the challenge, and then it took off. Even Patriots coach Bill Belichick got doused. Theyre doing it on live TV, and were like What is going on? said Petes father, John Frates. (Facebook founder Jeff) Zuckerberg just did it. Ethel Kennedy (86-yearold widow of Robert Kennedy), who is like royalty here. Theyre all amazing. John Frates loves the awareness aspect of the ice-bucket videos but said the millions of dollars raised could be a game-changer in ALS research. He said if Gehrig had gotten got ALS today, the only difference from 75 years ago is hed have a nicer wheelchair. Its been under a rock all too long, Frates said. The doctors say they tell 99 percent of patients, Get your affairs in order. Youre going to be passing in three, ve years. As a family, we said This is unacceptable. His son has thrown out many ceremonial rst pitches at baseball games, Frates said, but as much as that helps raise awareness, by the time a game is over, fans have forgotten about the cause. For whatever reason, people have connected with the ice bucket challenge in a way they have with few awareness efforts. Its our pink ribbon, Frates said, referring to the symbol for breast cancer awareness. Its exploding, the awareness and the fundraising coming at the same time. Now they can attract the competent, successful researchers, get them away from hair regrowth and erectile dysfunction, and put them to work here.BUCSFROM PAGE 1 Hoyer gets nod to startFROM WIRE REPORTSCLEVELAND Brian Hoyer has held off rookie Johnny Manziel for at least another week. Browns coach Mike Pettine has chosen Hoyer to start at quarterback ahead of Manziel in Clevelands second exhibition game on Monday night at Washington against Robert Grifn III and the Redskins. Pettines decision is somewhat surprising since he has stated that the quarterback competition is open and Hoyer started the preseason opener last week at Detroit. Pettine has said the two quarterbacks will share the snaps with Clevelands rst-team offense against the Redskins. Its just something right now where we are comfortable with Brian going out there to start the game, Pettine said Thursday. I think its a little overblown as to who the starter is going to be. The key component, as Ive stated earlier this week, is that we are going to balance the reps. We will play it a little by ear as it goes on, we havent truly decided as far as the rotation but the goal is, for when we look at the stat sheet at halftime, that they both have the same amount of repetitions and hopefully they both get a good amount of work. Earlier this week, Pettine did not know if the quarterbacks would rotate by series or quarter. Pettine did say Clevelands starter would play in the neighborhood of a half. Bills to Toronto concerns raised by documents: A Buffalo Bills fan group uncovered documents that suggest a Torontobased prospective ownership group has plans to relocate the franchise north of the border. In a release, the Buffalo Fan Alliance identified several announcements referring to Rogers Communications consultant, Roger Rai, as part of the ownership group attempting to acquire and move the Buffalo Bills to Toronto. Rai told The AP on Wednesday hes not involved with the groups ownership bid. He added the references connecting him to the proposed Bills purchase were a mistake on my behalf, and the result of a misinterpre tation made by a co-worker who wrote the biography. The alliance, made up of fans, former Bills players and business leaders, said the references made in the documents would seem to cast further doubt on the credibility of the Toronto groups assurances to keep the Bills in Buffalo. Around the league: Inside linebacker Brian Cushing practiced for the first time this year with the Houston Texans and could play in Saturdays preseason game against Atlanta. Cushing, 27, was activated from the physically unable to perform list. He had a broken fibula and torn LCL that caused him to miss most of last season. ... Oakland Raiders second-year tight end Nick Kasa likely tore his ACL in practice which will sideline him for the season, according to reports. Kasa was carted off the field because of the knee injury during a joint practice with the Dallas Cowboys. ... The Tennessee Titans signed center Steve Vallos and linebacker Kendrick Adams. The Titans also waived linebacker David Gilbert and offensive lineman Viondy Merisma to make room for the additions. ... The Pittsburgh Steelers signed running back Stephen Houston. ... The New Orleans Saints signed tight end Travis Beckum. The 6-foot-3, 234-pound Beckum was originally a third-round draft pick of the New York Giants in 2009 out of Wisconsin. The Saints also officially placed tight end Richard Quinn on the reserve/retired list. NFL NOTEBOOK DAVIE The middle of the Miami Dolphins defense is getting a lot of attention in training camp. While all three projected starters are the same as last year Dannell Ellerbe, Koa Misi and Philip Wheeler they are each lining up at different positions. Misi, who was the strong side linebacker, has moved into the middle where Ellerbe was before. Ellerbe has moved to the weak side. Wheeler is in Misis old spot. There also is a new linebackers coach: Mark Duffner, who came over from the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has ramped up the energy level in the group and has been impressed so far with how Misi is handling the transition to middle linebacker. What I like about Koa rst and foremost is his attitude, Duffner said. Hes a real professional. Hes going to work very, very hard both in the classroom, on the eld and even on his own time to get better at under standing the position and the technique. So far Im pleased with what I see and the positive thing about him is this guys a football player. That means he plays with great passion and he can run and hes going to be in the lineup. Misi recorded 54 tackles and two sacks last season as an outside linebacker and has 11 career sacks coming into his fth season. The former second-round pick out of Utah found the end zone as a rookie in just his second game when he recovered a fumble for a touchdown at the Minnesota Vikings. Now that hes switching positions and learning under a different coach, Misi is being realistic with his expectations. It just takes reps and getting used to this defense, he said. Playing Mike is a whole different ball game and its taking me a little bit to get down, but I think I can do it. Behind the starting three, rookie fth-round draft pick Jordan Tripp has caught on fast. He got some extra work with the rst unit during Thursdays practice at both inside and outside positions, and also in the nickel package. Tripp opened some eyes at the teams scrimmage two weeks ago at Sun Life Stadium when he forced a fumble and returned it 73 yards for a touchdown. He has been active all camp when hes on the eld and is earning the trust of his coaches and teammates, while also gaining more condence in himself. My comfort levels only getting better and better and I cant thank the coaches enough for giving me those reps, said Tripp, who played at the University of Montana. Obviously, the group that we have is a very good group and a veteran group and the room is phenomenal. I didnt expect it to be like this but everybodys tight knit and Ive gotten a lot of help from Dannell and Koa and its just a good aura.

Palmer, trying to beat Jimmy Clausen for the No. 2 job, led Chicago to two fourth-quarter touchdowns. Senorise Perry scored on a 5-yard run with 50 seconds left, and C.J. Wilson intercepted a pass to seal the win after Henne and Bortles picked the Bears apart. Jared Allen made his rst appearance for Chicago. The star offseason defensive acquisition nished with one tackle for a loss on an otherwise quiet night. He sat out last weeks opening win over Philadelphia after he missed practices because his wife had a baby. Henne showed mobility in the pocket and completed 12 of 17 passes before leaving with a 13-7 lead in the second quarter. Bortles looked sharp again after an impressive showing last week in a victory over Tampa Bay. The No. 3 pick in the draft, he went 11 for 17, but the Buccaneers came away with the loss. Chicagos Jay Cutler completed 7 of 9 passes for 79 yards and called it a night after throwing a 4-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall early in the second quarter. Jimmy Clausen got the rst call after Cutler left the game, with Palmer serving as the second man in relief in a ip from the preseason opener. But Clausen took a step back after a strong performance last week. The former Notre Dame star and Carolina Panther went 11 of 15 for 94 yards. He also had a pass inter cepted by Josh Evans early in the third quarter off linebacker Telvin Smiths deection. Palmer started the fourth quarter and threw for 73 yards, completing 6 of 9 passes. Martellus Bennett had a 25-yard catch after being suspended by the team last week for an alter cation in practice with cornerback Kyle Fuller.By ANDREW SELIGMANASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOJacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles looks for a receiver during the second half of Thursdays preseason game against the Chicago Bears in Chicago.

One word can be used to describe Port Charlotte resident Grace Chicken amazing. After turning 100 on July 6, the military veteran continues to be more active than many people half her age, and she shows no signs of stopping. On Aug. 1, fellow South Port Square residents gathered at Fishermens Village in Punta Gorda to celebrate the life of their very own amazing Grace. It started out with a simple lunch in the center court, followed by some conversation. But as the clock struck noon at Fishermens Village, something strange started happening. As music lled the air, people began to rise from their seats and dance toward the stage. Soon, everyone was doing the Macarena. Chicken remained in her seat, stunned. She had just been ash mobbed. I feel that she is really an amazing lady, said Smita Shinde, Campus Director of Resident Programs at South Port Square. Everybody on the campus really admires her.Amazing GraceBy NATALIE SHARBAUGHHERALD CORRESPONDENTHERALD PHOTO BY NATALIE SHARBAUGHGrace Chicken (front and center) was joined by her South Port Square family in celebration of her 100th birthday at Fishermens Village on Aug. 1, where she was also ash mobbed.Former military nurse celebrates 100th birthday Nicole NolesEDITORS CORNERnnoles@sun-herald.com Last week, I debuted a new page in the Port Charlotte Herald called Community Debate. The purpose is to get readers engaged about local issues that affect Port Charlotte and to exchange different points of view, and hopefully, generate new ideas to solve some of our current dilemmas. Our area battles some of the same issues every year without making much progress. The one that stands out in my mind, aside from mass transit, is economic diversity. When I graduated high school, none of my classmates wanted to stay in the area. There was nothing for teens to do, there was a sense that teens had no place in a retirement town and there were no good jobs to come back to, anyway. That hasnt changed much. Teens hang out at a different movie theater in the mall instead of the Promenades or the old theater on Cochran Boulevard and U.S. 41 (which is now a church), but thats about as much progress as weve made here. There is no economic diversity; we have a service-based economy, and we need to expand our horizons to keep this area viable. We could grow our ecotourism industry and nd a buyer for IMPAC University, hopefully a college or related institution. But building more strip malls, although it generates business and more service jobs, wont solve the bigger issue of diversication. With our regional airport in Punta Gorda and NASAs facility on the Space Coast, perhaps now is the time to reach out for STEM business opportunities as the aerospace industry goes increasingly commercial. Maybe we want to beef up our agricultural legacy, which increasingly relies on new technol ogy to stay competitive in smaller spaces as well as feed more people as the worlds population grows. We will always need food, so thats a pretty safe bet either way. What this area needs now are ideas, because without ideas, even outlandish ones, there is no starting point for growth and diversity. Business opportunities arent going to drop in our lap we have to create them. What are your ideas?

Herald Page 6 Friday, August 15, 2014 Several of the residents came up with the idea to ash mob Chicken for her birthday. In order to keep it a surprise, Shinde secretly practiced with them for nearly a month. It turned out to be a success as it not only surprised Chicken, but caught the attention of many of the passersby. Following the ash mob, Fred Daigle, a 20-year United States Navy Veteran who was dressed in uniform, congratulated Chicken on all of the memorable moments of her life. After thanking her for her many years of service with the military, he presented her with an award from her South Port Square family. Kim Lovejoy, Executive Director of the Military Heritage Museum and 25-year Army veteran, gave a speech in which she honored Chicken. Grace Chicken is one of my heroes. She helped pave the way for my generation of women to join the military and future generations, said Lovejoy. Women who joined the military during WWII had spunk. I think one of the reasons why Grace is still with us is because she has so much spunk. Chicken grew up on a farm in the hills of Missouri. After attending nursing school, she became a Registered Nurse and worked in Tennessee and California. But she had always hoped for something more adventurous. My aim was to be an Army nurse, said Chicken. But I was so afraid we would never have another war. In 1942, after the start of WWII, the Red Cross came calling. Chicken joined immediately and became a member of the Army Nurse Corps. I wanted to see the world, said Chicken, and I got stationed about 50 miles from home. I didnt stay there very long though. I really did see the world. Chicken completed the rigorous training required to become an air-evacuation ight nurse. As a ight nurse during WWII, she served in the Azores and Newfoundland. Thousands of feet above the ground in an airplane, she treated patients who were being transported to the United States from Europe, Africa and the CBI. During the Korean War, she helped to evacuate wounded soldiers from the danger zones of North Korea by providing care during their transport to South Korea and Japan. By using the G.I. Bill, Chicken took a short break from the military and earned a masters degree from Northwestern University. After rejoining, she continued to travel the world with the United States Air Force until retiring in 1968 as a Lt. Col. with 26 years of combined service. After retiring, Chicken was presented with an opportunity she couldnt resist. Wichita State University in Kansas had received a grant to start a degree program in nursing. With the grant about to expire, the university had no one to pioneer the program. Chicken applied for the job and was hired. With nothing but a desk, a secretary, and a typewriter, Chicken began to piece together the nursing program. By hiring instructors with doctoral degrees, she surrounded herself with highly qualied people and was eventually able to leave the program in good hands. I did what I was hired for, said Chicken. They gave me an associate professorship. I started the degree program for nurses and its now a part of the university. After leaving the university, Chicken remained in Kansas. She was introduced to a doctor named Charles Wingo. As an orthopedist, Wingo planned on moving to Punta Gorda, Fla. and opening his own practice until retirement. On a whim, Chicken offered to be his ofce nurse. Wingo accepted. In 1974, Chicken moved to Florida. She worked with Wingo for several years until she ofcially retired at the age of 65. Over the course of the next 35 years, Chicken remained active while every one else around her slowed down. Ive pretty much outlived all my family. I have some cousins once or twice removed in Kansas and New Mexico, said Chicken. As a woman on the move with at least 40 changes of address throughout her lifetime, Chicken never settled down to marry and have a family of her own. But she does have a family to call her own. When I rst moved to Florida, my friend asked me if her daughter could come and stay with me, said Chicken. The friends daughter, Deidre Parkinson of Port Charlotte, formed a special bond with Chicken. We just melded together, continued Chicken. I call her my daughter. She and her husband had two children. Thats my family, and were a very close family. Along with her family, Chicken has been able to celebrate many milestone birthdays. At 90, she saw a play in New York. At 95, she traveled to the Pacic Coast where she went whale watching and took a scenic tour ight through California and Mexico. For my 100th birthday my daughter gave me a birthday party with about 70 guests, said Chicken. It was a formal party with chamber music and everything. At 100 years old, Chicken is extremely mobile. Occasionally, she can be seen carrying her walking stick for extra support. Physically, she doesnt feel any different than she did years ago. Not one bit, said Chicken. I dont feel like I did when I was 16, of course, but Im still pretty healthy. While Chicken may not feel like a teenager, there have been reports of her running up the steps of the South Port Square bus faster than anyone else. Each week, Chicken takes the bus to the library where she continues to volunteer. For the past 17 years, Evelyn Hamner has volunteered at the library with Chicken. Shes unbelievable, said Hamner. She does so much volunteer work. She just go, go, goes all the time. We cant keep up with her. Chicken also volunteers in the nursing home where she visits with people who are considerably younger than herself. As a resident of the independent living center at South Port Square, Chicken takes many of the classes offered, is a member of the book club, and enjoys playing bridge three times a week. She also has her own garden. I dont have much in it anymore, continued Chicken, mostly owers, and right now I just have two allamandas. But it makes me feel like I still own a little bit of land. With all of the activity taking place, the Fountain of Youth may very well be hidden at South Port Square. Whether or not thats true, one thing is certain. All of the residents at South Port Square are living their lives with an amazing Grace. Every resident on this campus wants to acknowledge her and her achievements in life, continued Shinde. What an amazing 100 years of life.GRACE: Plucky pioneer celebrates birthday milestone surrounded by admirersFROM PAGE 1 PHOTOS BY NATALIE SHARBAUGHA ash mob of fellow South Port Square residents gathered in Fishermens Village to perform the Macarena in honor of Grace Chickens 100th birthday.

Herald Page 8 Friday, August 15, 2014 With busy schedules and hectic lifestyles that have become commonplace in todays society, too often we forget to stop and recognize the actions of others. Services that are provided to keep us safe have become something that we just expect and therefore take for granted. The residents at Royal Palm Retirement Centre, located at 2500 Aaron St., Port Charlotte, have decided to change all that. Every Thursday in August they will be participate in the Random Acts of Kindness event by baking special treats for those who serve and protect the Port Charlotte community. These goodies will be delivered the next day to local re stations, police stations, doctors ofces, churches, libraries and senior centers. The afternoon of Aug. 8 brought the residents to the Port Charlotte Fire Department, located at 3631 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte. The Port Charlotte Fire Department members day was made a little sweeter when about 10 Royal Palm ambassadors arrived with chewy chocolate chip cookies and words of gratitude. On behalf of the residents of Royal Palm Retirement Centre, we would like to show our appreciation to those who serve our community. They go above and beyond to keep our community safe and respond properly to emergency calls. Thank you for all the safety and education that you provide for the citizens of the community, said Marilyn Silverman, one of the residents at Royal Palm Retirement Centre. This was a special day, as it was the rst time in about ve years that the residents have participated in this cause, but it will not be the last, as they plan on spending many more Thursdays baking and making Fridays a little sweeter for those who deserve a Random Act of Kindness.Royal Palm residents bake Random Acts of KindnessBy KELLIE SHANKSHERALD CORRESPONDENT HERALD PHOTOS BY BETSY WILLIAMSRoyal Palm resident Rose Linnelle, 89, scoops out the baked cookies while her tablemates, Jackie Cernak, 89, Evelyn Gardner, 84, and Marilyn Silverman, 72, put on their plastic gloves to bag the cookies that would be delivered the next day for their August Random Acts of Kindness program. Every Thursday in August they bake special treats for those who serve and protect the Port Charlotte community. These goodies will be delivered the next day to local re stations, police stations, doctors oces, churches, libraries and senior centers. Kenia Isles, sta member, helps the women with the bagging of the cookies. Thelma Kahn, 85, and Vera Brockerman, 90, and Isles use their scissors to curl the ribbon on the bags. Joyce Clancy, 82 and her friend Trudy Jeers, 99, were having a good time listening to the funny stories being told by Kenia Isles while the cookies baked. Jackie Cernak, 89, makes sure the ribbons being used to tie the cookie bags were even. During the baking of each batch of cookies, sta member Kenia Isles would read funny stories to the women who had gathered in the lobby cafe for the baking session. Friday, August 15, 2014 Herald Page 9 Usually during the rst Monday in August at Franz Ross Park, there are hundreds of kids and coaches on the elds, running, hitting dummies and learning to cheer. On this evening it was quiet. Rain had washed out practice. And it couldnt come at a worse time less than two weeks separated the Port Charlotte Bandits from the Jamboree tomorrow in Punta Gorda. The program adjusted by scheduling a Saturday practice, which if the weather cooperated, would be the rst in full pads. The threat of rain is par for the course, but the future of Port Charlotte is not. For the rst time in seven years, Les Hassen is not running the show, though he will coach Junior Midgets. Shea Davis has taken the reins (Hassen is still on the board) for a program that has seen participation dwindle this year, enough so that the Bandits wont eld a Midget team for the rst time ever. I was with him on the board for three years, and hes still there to provide input, Davis said. Were still going to be a strong or ganization. Les is still with us so things arent going to change much, said vice president Joe Ferrentino. The numbers are a little down, but well be OK. Football coach Keith McDonough said there would be 130 football players and 60 cheerleaders this season. Davis said Port Charlotte was trying to put together an unlimited team (which Pop Warner allows) which Hassen would coach, but with the recent success of the high school team, many players decided to play as freshmen in high school. Some of the eighth-graders who met the requirements are now playing at Charlotte and Englewood. McDonough said that Midget participation has been a problem throughout the Peace River Conference, as only slightly more than half the associations will eld teams this year. We try to grow the program at every level and we just didnt get the participation there. Every year you have certain levels that struggle, but next year well be back at every level, Ferrentino said. With the maximum roster of 35 players per team, the other squads are at or close to full, Davis said. Both Mite programs lled up quickly. Thats the future of the association. If we cant get those levels, the program is in jeopardy, Davis said. Getting the lower levels and having them return will produce a great association. On the cheer side, although Davis said participation has been up, coor dinator Tammy Hendricks has also felt the pain, unable to get much more than 12 girls per team due to costs and more certications. With no midget football team, the midget cheer squad will root on the Junior Midgets. Were in a rebuilding year, but everyone is down throughout the region, Hendricks said. Its much more expensive now for Pop Warner, even for snacks, there are more certications, everything thats involved. Hendricks has instituted a new program where her girls can keep their uniforms, and those who cannot afford them can get a scholarship, Hendricks said. The same goes for football jerseys. The Bandits held a football festival at the fairgrounds on Aug. 9 to raise more money for the teams. Overall, Davis thinks all the Bandit teams can compete for playoff berths this year. We should have every competitive level team in the playoffs. Our rst game is against North Port on Aug. 23. So that will be a good test, Davis said.Bandits ready for new season, eraBy CHUCK BALLAROSPORTS WRITER HERALD PHOTOS BY CHUCK BALLAROPort Charlotte Pop Warner Junior Pee-Wee football players Logan Clauser (32) and Joseph Miller take part in a blocking drill during a recent practice at Franz Ross Park.

Herald Page 14 Friday, August 15, 2014 Do you remember when?The following are excerpts from the Daily Herald-News from Aug. 10, 1974, through Aug. 16, 1974:Burrall resigns as editorDaily Herald-News Editor Fred Burrall yesterday announced his resignation from the newspaper. Burrall intends to devote full-time to his Republican campaign for the Florida House of Representatives. I feel strongly that it is important for both Charlotte and I to win. The surest way to do that is to get out, meet everybody I can in the district to nd out their thoughts and explain mine, Burrall said. We have no representation from Charlotte County in Tallahassee. He feels the county was shortchanged on state aid in education and on the road situation. Burrall came to the Daily Herald-News in early 1971 from the Department of Commerce, where he was director of publicity in the tourism and industry elds. Reecting on his time with the newspaper, he said, I wanted to try and give our readers a product with local news, as well as national and international events. He created the popular Charlie Sez feature, which became almost synonymous with the papers name. Charlie developed a personality, and many readers thought he was a real person. He receives more phone calls than anyone in the ofce. Burrall, his wife, Bette, and their two children live in Port Charlotte. He graduated from the University of Florida after four years in the U.S. Air Force.Ross promoted to editor of the Daily Herald-NewsDonald K. Ross, news editor of the Daily Herald-News since March, was named editor today by Publisher Corbin A. Wyant. Ross is a professional with 25 years of experience in journalism. He had been acting editor since the resignation of Fred Burrall. The new editor holds a masters degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin. He was formerly a full-time professor of journalism at Marquette University for 15 years. Ross has been a reporter, editor, feature writer, photographer and has experience in public relations. Prior to coming to Charlotte County, he had been public relations director of a national organization of attorneys in Milwaukee. Ross and his wife, Sabina, live in Port Charlotte. They have a daughter who lives in Milwaukee.County airport given fundsFigures were just released by the Federal Aviation Administration district ofce in Miami. They reveal that a total of $1,116,847 was awarded to the state through the Planning Grant Program of the Airport and Airway Development Act in 1970. The Charlotte County Development Authority came in for a share of the funds. Carlos Franco, executive director, said the county received $20,000 for master plan work for 1973 and $97,000 in a grant during the 1974-75 development program. Here, in Charlotte County, airport progress for scal year 1974-75 will include installation of an instrument landing system (ILS) and a terminal visual omni-radio facility (TVOR), immune to thunderstorm activity. In addition, the airport will have outer marker beacons to assist instrument landings at Charlotte County Airport and improved taxi-way lighting.Mild depression felt during first quarter in FloridaAt the end of the rst quarter of the year. Florida was in the grip of a mild depression. Professor Elmo K. Jackson, professor of economics at the University of Florida, came up with this nding about the states economy. The most depressing statistics, he said, is to be found in building permit data. The fourth quarter of last year revealed a decline of 7 percent in building permit data. This quarter, building per mits dropped 22.5 percent compared to the same quarter of 1973. More information is needed for an authoritative look into the future. In this area, we are moving into our busy winter season. This will hopefully mean a step in a more optimistic direction. Fire department honors longtime donorJohn Fish was the guest of honor Sunday during the fourth annual open house at the Harbour Heights Fire Department.

Serving Punta Gorda and Burnt Store A section of the SUN 16 pages rying to capture the spirit of the people of Punta Gorda after Hurricane Charley in a few column inches is a tough writing assignment. Countless acts of charity, compassion and buy-in were on display for months after the storm. Picking just a few examples at the expense of others to illustrate that point isnt really an injustice. The whole community pitched in, and the results of that coming together are now visible all around a recovered city.

My mother always told me when I was little that a hurricane is Mother Natures way of pruning the landscape. At rst, the images we are accustomed to seeing around us would look shockingly different damaged, shortened, lopsided and topsy-turvy. But, soon enough, owers come into bloom. New stalks of plants climb out of the dirt. Within a season, or maybe even two, people are shocked once more this time at how much progress is made, with the natural landscape growing back stronger and more beautiful that ever before. As a child, the comparison made perfect sense to me, but, truth be told, I havent given this idea much thought in more than 15 years. But her words rang clear in my head this past week as I looked back on all the before and after snapshots we have access to at the Sun from Hurricane Charley. It was exactly what happened here. Those that lived in the area prior to Aug. 13, 2004, have a distinct memory of the way the city and surrounding region appeared on a day-to-day basis. They knew the downtown area well, and hardly gave a second glance at some of the historic structures and palm trees lining the roadways. It was all very normal to them. As far as they knew, the landscape would never change. After Hurricane Charley, however, those same people came to know their city in a whole new way through utter devastation, as the city was attened to the point it was no longer recognizable. In the span of a decade, those same survivors often say Charley helped to permanently reshape the landscape of this city for the better, something that can be seen not only from the aesthetic perspective, but also by observing the strong community that formed in the wake of devastation. In this weeks Punta Gorda Herald, Gordon Bower wrote an intriguing article about the community spirit that helped lift the city up from the rubble, making it better, more sophisticated and more beautiful than ever imaginable. May this edition, as well as the Sun s commemorative section of the storm, serve as a reminder of the strength that exists within our citizenry, and, that by working together, we can make some pretty impressive changes in the landscape of Punta Gorda.

Herald Page 4 Friday, August 15, 2014 Because they have owned their own farm, the entire Osterhaus family is very active in the food movement, and cooking has always been a top priority. Whenever they prepare their meals, however, they have found that searching through their kitchen cabinets and drawers for the right spice or seasoning can prove to be difcult. That is when Mark and Jeanna Osterhaus, Punta Gorda seasonal residents, decided to launch their new product a specially designed spice rack that can sit on a counter top and conveniently t under most kitchen cabinets. Known as the Allspice, it is made from oak and is 25-and-a-quar ter-inches long, 16-and-a-half-inches high and 4-and-a-half-inches deep. Our son, Max, is involved in serious food production in California, Mark Osterhaus said. He became frustrated with the spice racks he had purchased. He is an artist and does woodworking as well and came up with this concept. The Allspice is the rst spice rack built with serious home cooks in mind, according to their press release, and it comes with 60 custom glass jars and 120 preprinted labels to allow the cook easier access to their spices. The cost for the Allspice is $200. It makes it so easy, Mark Osterhaus said. Its like an artist working off their palette. Now the seasonings are right at your ngertips and cooking can become very efcient, as well as more creative. Max Osterhaus began designing a rack that could serve two purposes: to be accessible and not take up too much counter space. He built his own, then one for his parents, family members and friends. I have had people walk right up to Allspice and say, this is the solution to our spice problem, Jeanna Osterhaus said. Thats when the Osterhaus decided to market their new product by using Kickstarter, a worldwide platform for entrepreneurs to fund their projects and make them successful. Kickstarter is popular with young people, Mark Osterhaus said. Its a good vehicle for us to get a handle on how the Allspice will be received. Leah Sugar, the Osterhaus daughter, said Kickstarter is like pre-ordering, and, if the goal is reached by the end of the month, the racks will be delivered in February. Kickstarter was selected because it provides the maximum feedback before the racks go into production. In the future, it will be offered through kitchen supply outlets and other stores.

In 1998, he formed Out of the Box Publishing that sold more than 4 million copies of the popular board game Apples to Apples in addition to 40 other game titles. The Osterhaus split their year between Wisconsin and their winter home in Burnt Store Isles, and they nd that Florida cooking is different than preparing meals in the Badger State. Florida has a lot of sh and seafood that we dont get in Wisconsin, Jeanna Osterhaus said. The Allspice is convenient no matter what type of cooking you are doing. Mark Osterhaus said they will experiment using other woods, such as mahogany, rubberwood, pine, maple, cheery and walnut, once production goes into full swing. We are trying to keep the cost down, he said. The deadline to order on Kickstarter is Sept. 3 to take advantage of the discount. The early bird gets the worm, as the old saying goes.

Retta Esplanade, Punta Gorda.CALENDARFROM PAGE 2 It all started in the summer of 2009 in Jill McCrory's home around her grandmother's old marble table. Four people sat at that table planning a new venture, as the McCrory Law Firm was born in Punta Gorda. On Labor Day weekend of that year, they moved the rm to the second oor of the Laishley Crab House building on the waterfront across from Laishley Park. With 2,000 square feet for four people, there was plenty of room and time to grow. Yet, ve years later, with 16 employees, the room has vanished, and the space to grow further has run out. This summer, six lawyers, ten staff members and three interns were crammed into hallways, closets and any cubbyhole where there was room for a desk. Even the bathroom doubled as a storage room. Looking around at the clutter, McCrory smiled a nostalgic smile as she marveled at the rapid growth of the rm, and she acknowledged it was time "to move on." "We just have no more space," she said, "but I'm going to miss this place. It's my baby. It was a shell. I built it from scratch." The move will take place on Labor Day weekend to 4,000 square feet of the Allison James Estates and Homes building at 309 Tamiami Trail in Punta Gorda, near Olympia Avenue. McCrory, a University of Florida graduate, previously worked for the Farr and Mizell law rms, and she was encouraged to go out on her own. "I didn't know how challenging it was going to be," she said, and now she's almost stunned, but pleased, at the growth experienced after ve years. The staff is pleased as well. One of the original four employees, Linda Coulter, a legal assistant, said, "It will be so nice to spread out, to have conference rooms for our clients and," she beamed, "a real kitchen. Another of the four marble-table planners, Mary Hindman, a paralegal, said, "It will be a great move for our clients," particularly disabled clients, who currently have to navigate an elevator and a ramp to get to the ofces. "Jill has done so well," she said. "We've grown by leaps and bounds. The whole ofce is proud of her." The fourth person that summer ve years ago, and still with the rm, was Dianne Ingman, an estate planner. The table, of course, will make the journey to the new ofces as well. Not only is it viewed as a good-luck charm, but Coulter said, "it's part of the history that will be going with us." The new, renovated space will be doubled to 4,000 square feet, with room for three more attorneys and three more staff members. When asked if an expansion of the rm was in order, she responded with a smile, "I have no idea what the future holds."

Friday, August 15, 2014 Herald Page 7 Chamber presence planned at shopping centers conferenceI shall shortly be departing for the Florida International Council of Shopping Centers Conference with our friends from the Charlotte County Economic Development Council and the city of North Ports Economic Development team. We will join forces under the banner The Tamiami Trail Partnership of SW Florida. If you are going, please swing by our booth and say hello. If you are not going and want us to have some of your literature available for distribution, drop such material off at the chamber ofce, 252 W. Marion Ave., before Aug. 21, so we can make sure you are there in spirit, if not body. Our goal is to meet with those looking to open up businesses in our area, while at the same time to be looking to see how similar communities are fairing at attracting new business ventures. It should be good exposure for the city.Pops Concert details announcedThe annual Pops Concert is now conrmed for Oct. 11 at Florida SouthWestern State College, located at 26300 Airport Road, Punta Gorda. The park opens at 5:30 p.m. for the evenings festivities. The chamber is thrilled to be bringing a group from New York, who both look and sound just like ABBA. Do you remember Dancing Queen, The Winner Takes It All, Money, Money, Money and Mamma Mia? Well, this band will be performing all those favorites and more that night. Regular tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased either by calling the chamber ofce or visiting its website. Plan to bring your own chair and picnic while enjoying a crazy night of musical fun under the stars. A portion of the proceeds will benet the college foundation. As in all previous years, sponsorship tables are available up front. We have no doubt there will be some crazy costumes on display that night. If you wish to purchase a table and/or be a sponsor, now is the time to get on board. Call the chamber ofce or visit the online payment center of the website for more information.Wine & Jazz tickets availableDont forget that Dave Koz, Nick Colionne and Mindi Abair are all heading to Punta Gorda in February 2015 for the annual Punta Gorda Wine & Jazz Festival. Full details and advance tickets, which are strongly suggested, are available on the chambers website. The only disclaimers are, sadly, no pets and denitely no coolers. It is with great pride that the chamber brings such a talented lineup to the city.WRIGHTFROM PAGE 3 Excerpts from 40 years ago Punta GordaDo you remember when?FROM OUR ARCHIVES Janine Smith 40 Years AgoJanine Smith writes about Punta Gordas historic past. Contact her at janinehs1@ comcast.net. The following are excerpts from the Daily Herald-News from Aug. 10, 1974, through Aug. 16, 1974:Burrall resigns as editorDaily Herald-News Editor Fred Burrall yesterday announced his resignation from the newspaper. Burrall intends to devote full time to his Republican campaign for the Florida House of Representatives. I feel strongly that it is important for both Charlotte and I to win. The surest way to do that is to get out, meet everybody I can in the district to nd out their thoughts and explain mine, Burrall said. We have no representation from Charlotte County in Tallahassee. He feels the county was shortchanged on state aid in education and on the road situation. Burrall came to the Daily Herald-News in early 1971 from the Department of Commerce, where he was director of publicity in the tourism and industry elds. Reecting on his time with the newspaper, he said, I wanted to try and give our readers a product with local news, as well as national and international events. He created the popular Charlie Sez feature, which became almost synonymous with the papers name. Charlie developed a personality, and many readers thought he was a real person. He receives more phone calls than anyone in the ofce. Burrall, his wife, Bette, and their two children live in Port Charlotte. He graduated from the University of Florida after four years in the U.S. Air Force.Ross promoted to editor of the Daily Herald-NewsDonald K. Ross, news editor of the Daily Herald-News since March, was named editor today by Publisher Corbin A. Wyant. Ross is a professional with 25 years of experience in journalism. He had been acting editor since the resignation of Fred Burrall. The new editor holds a masters degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin. He was formerly a full-time professor of journalism at Marquette University for 15 years. Ross has been a reporter, editor, feature writer, photographer and has experience in public relations. Prior to coming to Charlotte County, he had been public relations director of a national organization of attorneys in Milwaukee. Ross and his wife, Sabina, live in Port Charlotte. They have a daughter who lives in Milwaukee.County airport given fundsFigures were just released by the Federal Aviation Administration district ofce in Miami. They reveal that a total of $1,116,847 was awarded to the state through the Planning Grant Program of the Airport and Airway Development Act in 1970. The Charlotte County Development Authority came in for a share of the funds. Carlos Franco, executive director, said the county received $20,000 for master plan work for 1973 and $97,000 in a grant during the 1974-75 development program. Here, in Charlotte County, airport progress for scal year 1974-75 will include installation of an instrument landing system (ILS) and a terminal visual omni-radio facility (TVOR), immune to thunderstorm activity. In addition, the airport will have outer marker beacons to assist instrument landings at Charlotte County Airport and improved taxiway lighting.Mild depression felt during first quarter in FloridaAt the end of the rst quarter of the year, Florida was in the grip of a mild depression. Elmo K. Jackson, professor of economics at the University of Florida, came up with this nding about the states economy. The most depressing statistics, he said, is to be found in building permit data. The fourth quarter of last year revealed a decline of 7 percent in building permit data. This quarter, building permits dropped 22.5 per cent compared to the same quarter of 1973. More information is needed for an authoritative look into the future. In this area, we are moving into our busy winter season. This will hopefully mean a step in a more optimistic direction. rTHEPATIENTANDANYOTHERPERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENTHASARIGHTTOREFUSETOPAY,CANCELPAYMENT,ORBEREIMBURSEDFORPAYMENTFORANYOTHERSERVICE,EXAMINATION,ORTREATMENTWHICHISPERFORMEDASARESULTOFANDWITHIN72HOURSOFRESPONDING TOTHEADVERTISEMENTFORTHEFREE,DISCOUNTEDFEE,ORREDUCEDFEESERVICE,EXAMINATIONS,ORTREATMENT.THERISKS,BENEFITSAND ALTERNATIVESWILLBEDISCUSSEDDURINGTHEPATIENTSCONSULTATION.

Herald Page 8 Friday, August 15, 2014 Some thanks goes to the storm itself for the many amenities the town now enjoys. Without Federal Emergency Management Agency and insurance money, there would be no high school that looks like a junior college campus, no palatial Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center, no Sunloft Center, no houses that look like new after their upgrades. Other communities have had the same advantages with much different results. The difference, ultimately, lies in the hearts of our residents, whose only wish was to help rebuild the town they love.In the eye of the stormThere is little doubt among local survivors that Hurricane Charley bestowed on Punta Gorda just about the worst thrashing Mother Nature can deal out. Estimating Category 4 or higher hurricane winds is a dicey proposition, since anemometers tend to fall apart and gusts and microbursts embedded in the storm can be far higher than the sustained speed. Based on an analysis of structural damage, the National Weather Service did an analysis in the weeks after Charley, and, as scientists usually do, threw out a variety of estimates. This much is clear; a map of wind speeds shows most of Punta Gorda proper in a narrow corridor of 140-mile-perhour-plus winds, reaching to more than 170-mile-per-hour gusts at the airport and near what was then Charlotte Regional Medical Center. For comparative purposes, those speeds would qualify Charley as an EF-3 tornado, fourth highest out of the six tornado categories. What hit Punta Gorda, though nobody knew it at the time, was a 10-mile-wide tornado moving across the landscape at about the same speed as a twister and dealing out a similar level of destruction over a wider area. There is no need to dwell on that destruction. Sufce it to say that little was left but the sturdiest structures, and most of them were heavily damaged. Trafc signals and signs, power, water, TV and phone services were gone. Debris was piled up everywhere, and Punta Gorda was at on her back.Help arrivesThe storm brought an outpouring of help from outside the community. The Caravan of Hope from California showed up with water and supplies 4 hours after the storm. People from places like Tampa, Naples, Sarasota and Fort Myers began arriving with supplies and loaner generators. Many folks ate their meals at the American Red Cross and Salvation Army food wagons for days or weeks. The storm also brought out the worst in many people from outside our devastated town. Looters, scavengers, metal scroungers and gawkers descended on Punta Gorda almost as fast as the National Guard troops and law enforcement ofcers and faster than FEMA and the insurance companies.Neighbors assisting neighborsWhile that charity was welcome, residents emerged from their houses right after the storm and immediately came together to begin the rebuilding process, cleaning up their own homes and helping neighbors who were worse off or unable to do it themselves. Crumpled garage doors were pried open, the injured taken to rst aid, supplies hauled to those in need, roofs patched with tarps, broken windows covered and empty houses searched and secured as well as possible. One of the most immediate concerns was food, since a large percentage of residents, unprepared for a hurricane, had only refrigerated food and no generators. On many streets, cul-desac parties grilled what was left of everybodys food in the rst day or two before it spoiled. After that, meals were sought in one of the relief wagons. Ice was as valuable as gold. With no power to run refrigeration equipment, restaurants throughout town stepped up. Nestors (in the now-demolished Price Pirate mall at Aqui Esta Drive and U.S. 41), River City Grill and the Turtle Club cooked up perishable supplies and provided meals for free. River City and Turtle Club opened their doors to feed National Guard troops and anyone who wandered in hungry. Hundreds of police and emergency personnel were in town and needed fed. After large generators were brought in to power the Public Safety Building, a few women, mostly city employees, pulled long shifts in a cramped little kitchen to feed them.Duking it out with the bureaucraciesHaving pulled together to survive the rst days of no food, water or electricity, residents next had to learn how to deal with FEMA, insurance and mortgage companies and contractors, all of which were supposed to help them restore their homes. They were as much trouble as the storm itself. FEMA required pounds of paperwork, then more pounds over and over again, but had the nerve to demand an immediate check from homeowners who nally received some insurance money. Insurance adjustors arrived from all over the country, clueless about local construction practices and delivered low-ball estimates and late checks. Mortgage companies sat on the insurance company checks for weeks and months before reluctantly releasing them to the homeowner in need. Contractors missed appointments to begin repairs. Most residents persevered through how-to tips from friends and neighbors and sheer determination and audacity. Here are a couple of examples that illustrate how a rebuilding Punta Gorda homeowner is not to be tried with. Brenda Ryan had home insurance with Citizens, the state pool company and insurer of last resort. Her rst adjustor told her she didnt need an inventory because her house had suffered damage above the insurance limit. After months of stonewalling and no check, a second adjustor showed up with a different opinion. Ryan said, She called in January (2005) and said she wanted to send a truck to take away my damaged stuff. I said, SPIRITFROM PAGE 1 ON THE COVERFILE PHOTOThe Spirit of Punta Gorda statue in Laishley Park is a permanent monument honoring the peoples determination to rebuild the city after Hurricane Charley.

Friday, August 15, 2014 Herald Page 9 October, November or December would have been better. Ive already hauled 16 loads to Carmalita Yard (dump site). She even wanted an afdavit from the dump site. She wanted me to recreate damage that happened ve months ago. At that point, Ryan had had enough and red off an e-mail describing her problem to everybody she could think of. She started with President George W. Bush, then the vice president, on down to presidential brother and Gov. Jeb. Bush, then-Congressman Mark Foley and Florida state politicians, local newspapers and TV stations. All hell broke loose after that. She got only perfunctory replies from the president, vice president and governor, but the local political leaders did her proud. In what surely wasnt a coincidence, Citizens had a check delivered the day before Fox 4 news was scheduled to lm her story. Brenda Montgomerie of Tropical Gulf Acres said her insur ance company, Farm Bureau, was wonderful. Her nemesis was her mortgage company, Wells Fargo, which sat on her insur ance checks for months. After getting nowhere through normal channels, she and her husband decided to start making phone calls to nancial regulatory agencies to complain about the treatment she was getting. They started with the national Better Business Bureau, the Florida Department of Financial Services Ofce of Financial Regulation, the Congressional Banking and Finance Committee, and then, the coup de grace, the Ofce of the Comptroller of the Currency in Washington, D.C., which was consumer-friendly and more than happy to accept a led complaint. Montgomerie isnt sure exactly which institution was responsible, but all were in the process of investigating her complaint when a check suddenly arrived.Spirit on displayA year after the storm, Punta Gorda residents, though many were still rebuilding, celebrated their progress with two demon strations of their can-do attitude. When the Today show came to town on Aug. 13, 2005, hundreds of proud residents arose at dawn to trek downtown, surround the set and thumb their collective noses at Charley with signs that said Charley cant put a good city down, Punta Gorda dreams and Sorry Charley, paradise rebuilt. Later that day, a crowd estimated at 5,000 showed up in Gilchrist Park to celebrate the 1-year anniversary not of the natural disaster, but of the recovery. A number of political dignitaries and even Weather Channel meteorologist Jim Cantore showed up to praise the recovery. Highlights included local troubadour Jim Morris singing an original song, Eye of the Storm, and the unveiling of two pieces of a sculpture whose placement in Laishley Park two years later would be cause for yet another celebration. The celebration and the sculpture, both called the Spirit of Punta Gorda, were the work of a group of about 25 civic-minded residents led by Marilyn Thorndycraft, also called, unsurprising ly, the Spirit of Punta Gorda Committee. The celebration was a necessary feel-good moment in time. The sculpture now stands in a quiet corner of Laishley Park, a permanent monument to the peoples determination to rebuild.Organizing for the futureWhile businesses and government entities were overwhelmed just restoring services and commerce to storm-ravaged areas and creating order so daily life could resume, members of the community started thinking into the future and saw an oppor tunity to build Punta Gorda into a community far better than anyone thought possible before the storm. Three months after the storm hit, TEAM Punta Gorda emerged as a grassroots volunteer organization of 2,000 citizens, 350 nancial contributors and 200 active volunteers. The group raised $200,000 and hired world-renowned urban planner Jaime Correa, who worked with TEAM volunteers to conduct public workshops and gather grassroots input on rebuilding our community. The outcome was the Citizens Master Plan 2005, a visionary document that continues to inspire the redevelop ment of greater Punta Gorda. If you remember the old Professional Center and have been awed by the facade of its replacement, the Sunloft Center; if you have marveled at the best-looking parking garage in Florida; if you have watched your children run among jets of water at the interactive fountain in a brand-new Laishley Park; if youve strolled Harborwalk or ridden the bike trails thank the Citizens Master Plan. Once the Citizens Master Plan was completed and gifted to Punta Gorda and Charlotte County governments, TEAM began the process of working with the city to implement the plan. A major emphasis was to build a collaborative relationship with city and county governments through volunteer citizen assis tance and support in rebuilding our community. One major area of focus was to ensure the auditorium destroyed by the hurricane would be rebuilt as an impressive gateway to the city. The Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center stands as a proud tribute to that vision. TEAM continues to be a unique and successful organization known for its community enhancement and beautication proj ects. Among its most notable achievements are cycling initiatives, like the free bike-loaner program and a popular spring bicycle ride that draws people from all over the state. Thanks to the city-TEAM partnership, Punta Gorda has gone from a cycling disaster into a bicycle-friendly city for residents and a destination for enthusiasts. 10 years henceDuring the past 10 years, Punta Gorda has gone from a pile of debris to a city bristling with new quality-of-life enhancements, both thanks to Hurricane Charley. For those newcomers interested in the impact of the most seminal local event of this century, the Internet contains a ton of information on the storm, mostly about the strength and the damage it did, with an occasional smidgen of praise for residents successful reaction to it. That information, as well this story, cant do justice to what really transpired. Residents who werent here have a much better source the survivors, who went through the eye of the storm and never tire of talking about how they joined friends and neighbors to rebuild their city. What makes the communitys post-storm spirit even more remarkable is that most of the citys residents were born and raised somewhere else, proving that living in a place by choice, rather than birth, can create a bond as strong as any.

Friday, August 15, 2014 Herald Page 11 Punta Gorda proclaimed itself Hibiscus City in 1926, and City Council reafrmed this declaration in 2000, though changing the moniker to City of Hibiscus. Its also the hometown of the internationally famous and legendary hibiscus grower Harry Goulding. What many do not know, however, is that the local hibiscus club, the Harry Goulding Chapter of the American Hibiscus Society, is a major player at the national level among growers of the ower that typies the tropics. This year, for the third time, a member of the Goulding Chapter, Jim Bridges, was elected president of the national group at its meeting in June. Carl Powell, owner of Powells nursery, and the late Zelda Neef both preceded Bridges in the leadership role, an indication of how members of the American Society feel about the expertise of local hibiscus acionados. Bridges is certiably nuts about his favorite ower, which he started growing when living in Virginia Beach, long before he moved to Florida. He said, In 1982, I bought three varieties in Orlando and took them back to Virginia Beach, where I had a greenhouse. I moved them out in the spring. They hybridized beautifully, and I started doing divisions (growing plants from cuttings). The next thing I knew, I was growing hibiscus like you wouldnt believe. He retired from AT&T in 1989 but couldnt move to Florida until after wife Mary retired in 2003. He spent the time in between growing 5,000 varieties of orchids for wholesale to big box stores and nurseries and experimenting with hibiscus. When the couple arrived in 2003, he hit the ground running and soon had a backyard and patio lled with hibiscus plants. Eager to interact with others who shared his enthusiasm, he stopped at a house whose yard was covered with hibiscus. The owner turned out to be enthusiast Randy Cox, who gave him a couple of cuttings and some advice. Bridges said of that encounter, He told me, What you need to do is join the hibiscus society. The local chapter was in turmoil back then, so Bridges joined the Venice Chapter for a short time. He was recruited into the Goulding Chapter in 2005, served as its president in 2007, and helped rebuild the club to its present 25 members. Today, he serves as club program director, organizing the educational part of the monthly meetings, and looks forward to the day when its rolls are back up to the 65 members it once had. Its just a group of people that come together and love and want to grow hibiscus, he said. Bridges is an activist president of the national society and posts information and photos every day on the presidents page of the groups website. He will preside over his rst national meeting in November in Tampa, as well as the bigger annual convention scheduled in June right here in the City of Hibiscus. The annual meeting, last held here in 2004 before Hurricane Charley struck, is a big deal. People come from everywhere, he said, Italy, Virgin Islands, Australia. Well probably have 100 people at the banquet. What draws plant lovers to the hibiscus is easy to understand. Bridges explained, Its the different varieties and the size of the owers they bloom, and the creativity and artistry of the process that attracts people. That process is hybridizing parent plants with different owers in the hope of producing a baby with a truly spectacular ower. Because the pollen grains of hibiscus are sticky and dont blow around, its relatively simple to transfer pollen and obtain unique seeds produced by two plants of your choice. Its not that difcult, Bridges said of the process he has mastered through years of practice. You put the right pollen on the right ower, and you get a seed pod full of seeds. You have no clue whether a seed is going to turn out like mom, dad or stepchild. All the seeds are different and have to be grown into owering plants, usually taking a year, before the results are clear. The results can range from downright ugly to a spectacularly beautiful bloom that never existed before. The uglies go in the compost pile; the superstars are reproduced by rooting cuttings to produce identical copies. Growers can name and register their best blooms with the national society and often place them in competitions. Some 3,900 hybrids have been named and registered, but thousands more are oating around. Powell said, Thats only a fraction of whats out there. Although you can nd hybrids at nurseries and big box stores, most of the hibiscus sold and grown locally are garden variety. Powell explained the difference in his own inimitable manner: Harry Goulding used to say, The difference between a garden variety and a hybrid variety is like the difference between a hound dog and a poodle. An easy way to admire or purchase some of the beautiful hybrids produced by local hibiscus enthusiasts is to attend the Goulding Chapters annual Mothers Day Hibiscus Show and Plant Sale at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center.

You can also call Bridges at 941-627-1332, who would love to add a new member to the club.Local grower takes helm of American Hibiscus Society HERALD PHOTO BY GORDON BOWERCarl Powell, left, a past American Hibiscus Society president, examines cuttings produced by current president Jim Bridges.

Page 2 Friday, August 15, 2014 CHARLOTTE COUNTY COMMISSION DISTRICT 2Q: Why are you running for re-election? A: It has been a great honor and sincere privilege to serve the people of Charlotte County during my rst term as commissioner. I would like to continue to represent (the county) and its interests on the Peace River/ Manasota Regional Water (Supply) Authority, (the) Gulf Consortium and (the) Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council. There remains a great deal of work that has yet to be accomplished in improving our quality of life and the economy. If we are to achieve these goals without raising tax rates, we must increase the tax base by being successful in our efforts with respect to expanding economic development. Living in Charlotte County for the past 20 years, as a physician and smallbusiness owner, raising a family and being in close contact with other members of the business, medical and legal communities, has provided me with the tools necessary to execute the duties of the job I was elected chairman by my fellow commissioners in 2011, and re-elected in 2012. During my tenure, the board made an important transition from a dysfunctional commission to one that is inclusive, courteous and works in unison toward a common goal. Q: What do you hope to accomplish/ what are the big issues you see that need tackling? A: It is of paramount importance that we continue to oppose the scal policies of the (water authority), in order to keep water rates for the citizens of Charlotte County as low as possible. This can best be accomplished by having the public come to the budget meeting at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 25 at the Venice Administration Building, 4000 S. Tamiami Trail. They need to make their voices heard. As chairman of the MPO for the past three years, I have realized the importance of well-planned road infrastructure. Burnt Store Road is our number-one priority for expansion of road infrastructure in Charlotte County. Through hard work involving a cooperative agreement with Lee County, it is now their number-one priority, as well. It is my sincere hope and goal that we will have the last section in Charlotte County, Phase II, programmed and funded in the next four years. Also, the completion of North Jones Loop Road is extremely important to economic development and the economic viability of the distributioncenter model at the Punta Gorda Interstate Park. We need to complete this road so that commerce can easily move on and off (Interstate 75), and ease increasing congestion at the airport itself. (Also on the list: Murdock Village; unfunded mandates; scal responsibility for Charlotte County Utilities; and a userfriendly building department.) Q: What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? A: As a proven leader, a true conservative and an advocate for the taxpayer, I believe I have the necessary educational background and extensive experience in the oversight of our county government, which I acquired during my first term, that qualifies me for this position. Developing good, sound relationships with our counterparts in our neighboring counties and members of state government, in order to better serve the interests of Charlotte County, has been one of my goals that I work to achieve every day. I have been an effective problemsolver with expertise that is unique and complements the attributes and skill sets of the other commissioners on the board. As a proven leader, who is not afraid to ask the tough questions, or speak my mind on issues, my decisions are made based upon whats best for the community. Compiled by Gary RobertsChristopher Constance, incumbent RepublicanCHRISTOPHER CONSTANCEAge: 52 Where you live: Punta Gorda Where youre from: originally from New York; in Punta Gorda since 1994 Family: three children Education: bachelors; M.D. (general surgery residency, followed by plastic surgery fellowship). Advanced Certified County Commissioner, Florida Association of Counties, 2014 Profession: board-certified plastic surgeon CONSTANCE Q: Why did you decide to run for this seat? A: I am concerned about the scal condition of Charlotte County and the kind of debt all our grandchildren will inherit. The continuing loss of liberty, excessive taxation, huge debt, and over-regulation at all levels of government cause deep concern. The money the County Commission spends belongs to, and comes from, the citizens. Frequently, the commission acts like the citizens have no right to question what they do or how they do it. I want a better future for all residents We are certainly among the top-taxed counties in the state, when you add the off-the-books taxes (i.e. MSBU and MSTU districts, fees, etc.) to the total on the books. An example of this is the requested extension of the 1 percent sales tax that I oppose. I understand the fairness issue in terms of all taxable purchases supporting the costs of projects using the sales-tax method. However this is more taxation to pay for special projects beneting a few citizens, when other more urgent projects are left unfunded. Q: What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see that need tackling? A: 1.) Budget: Make it visible and transparent to any citizen wishing to know and understand the total budget. 2.) Eliminate or minimize the use of MSBUs and MSTUs to fund projects. We make use of these accounting mechanisms far more than most other counties in the state. 3.) Murdock Village payments include interest of $6,000 a day of taxpayer money on the property note. Tommy White, along with Barbara Scott (of the Clerk of Courts ofce) took advantage of the lower interest rates in recent history and reduced the amount of note interest from more than $10,000 a day. Commissioners gladly approved the change. While grateful for that savings, at the current rate, we are spending more than $2 million in interest a year. Left as is, it will take 10 years and $20 million in interest to pay off the current note. So far, the only entity making money on Murdock Village is the bank. We need to actively market the property through an international professional; sell it, even at a loss; continue to pay off the remaining note; get the property back on the tax rolls; and let private enterprise work on bringing more jobs to Charlotte County. (Also on the list: minimize the amount of land owned by government; and review the purchasing process to determine why amendments to contracts occur.) Q: What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? A: I am retired and available to work full time on the county issues. Commissioner Chris Constance is a plastic surgeon and must share his time between his patients, Charlotte County citizens and his many other obligations, such as the boards he serves on, single-parent family responsibilities, and continuing education. My commitment is to meet with citizens monthly for two-way communication. My business experience spanned over 34 years with Dana Corp. (a Fortune 100 company at that time), and included all facets of business. I opened and closed plants, addressed industrial issues created by new legislation, made acquisitions and sold businesses, prepared and evaluated budgets, presented an annual Hell Week plan (consisting of a detailed one-year plan with ve-year projections) to the board of directors, and pursued quality processes to improve the businesses. I was a successful vice president and general manager of several diversied manufacturing, distribution and sales divisions, requiring both U.S. and international travel, with full operational and prot-and-loss responsibility.

Friday, August 15, 2014 Page 3 CHARLOTTE COUNTY COMMISSION DISTRICT 4Q: Why are you running for re-election? A: I am running for re-election because I believe in less government, reduced taxes and maintaining our rights as dened in our Constitution. I believe in giving back. I will continue to be an active advocate for our veterans. I want to make Charlotte County a better place for our children and grandchildren. I have worked hard to build bridges of cooperation between the (Charlotte County) Airport Authority, (the) Punta Gorda City Council and our neighboring counties. I believe that I have demonstrated my ability as a catalyst to help people work together and move forward. My unique experiential background and academic achievements have created a base that has helped our commission move positively toward the future. I have proven that I accept the challenges of public service and am willing to make the tough decisions. I try to be open and fair to everyone and do the job right. I believe that I have been and will continue to be a positive force on our commission. I have faith in the Lord, and truly believe this is my mission. Q: What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see that need tackling? A: I would like to see an increased effort in economic development, with emphasis on the development of smalland medium-size businesses. I would like to see something positive happen with the Murdock Village property. I would like to see the county tackle the MSBU dilemma. I want to see the groin system approved and installed at Stump Pass. I hope to see us start work on the completion of the Burnt Store Road project and River Road. I would like to see our county cleaned up and made more attractive for our residents and visitors. Working together, we can make these dreams a reality. Q: What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? A: I enlisted and served actively in the U.S. Coast Guard, and received my honorable discharge in 1963. My professional experience as a city and town planner and economic and community development program director provides a solid base for working in county government. My academic accomplishments dwarf that of my challengers. I have earned two graduate degrees and countless certications and accreditations, including both my certied county commissioner and advanced county commissioner status by the Florida Association of Counties. I have elected experience as a town councilman, state representative, state senator and county commissioner. I know how to get the job done! My professional credentials are only surpassed by my well-known work ethic and unmatchable constituent services. Owning and managing my own business for 30 years has given me a businessmans point of view to problem-solving. My 70 years of life experience puts the icing on the cake; I have more education, government, business and life experience than that of my two opponents combined. Compiled by Gary RobertsStephen R. Deutsch, incumbent RepublicanSTEPHEN R. DEUTSCHAge: 74 Where you live: Port Charlotte Where youre from: originally from the Northeast; moved to Charlotte County in 2004 Family: married to Beth Marie; four adult children Education: Bachelors degree in economics and business administration, and masters degrees in community lead ership and development, and counseling and guidance. Advanced Certified County Commissioner, Florida Association of Counties, 2014 Profession: real estate and development DEUTSCH Q: Why did you decide to run for this seat? A: I want to effect change in a positive way here in our community. I can inject a business-minded attitude with a private-sector mentality. I am not a career politician, and I own a home and business in our community. Q: What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see that need tackling? A: Truly open our county for business. Ask tough questions to hold myself, the County Commission, administration and staff accountable to our community. Promote economic development through policy, procedure and funding. Limit the amount of property held by the county, thus eliminating potential liability and increasing county revenue by getting property on the tax roll. The issues are Murdock Village, MSBUs, debt. Q: What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? A: I have a vested interest in the future of our county (my family and business are here). I am the only candidate in the primary election for District 4 that is not paid by the government. I own a business and am involved in all planning and nancial decisions pertaining to the success and failure of that business. I have survived a down economy, and have succeeded in managing our business through catastrophic events (Hurricane Charley/ recession).

A: Change. I believe that in all levels of government, especially local government, the decisions made by our leaders should be solely based on the desires of the majority of our constituents and whats best for our community. After working on the inside for the past six years, I can assure you thats not always the case. There simply is no room for politics at the county level. Countless people have said, Im sick of how the county is run, we need change, somebody who represents us. I will provide that leadership and accountability. I am not a career politician, nor backed by a special-interest group. When elected, I will be accountable to every citizen, not just a select group that hand-picked and supported me nancially throughout my campaign. As your elected representative, I will leverage my knowl edge, relationships and past accomplishments to be an effective leader. I promise to positively impact our community. Q: What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see that need tackling? A: Restoring scal discipline while maintaining a high priority on economic development. HOW: Use vast nancial and budgeting experience to further shrink the countys annual operating budget, (and) strongly push for codes, ordinances and zoning changes that will enhance business and investment opportunities. Eliminate unfair treat ment and oppressive taxes on local churches. HOW: Charlotte County currently taxes churches for road and infrastructure improvements through special assessments. As churches are nancially supported by members of their congregation, church members unfairly pay the same special assessments twice, creating a major conict with the separation of church and state. Improve communication with residents by allowing them the opportunity to be involved in the decisions that ultimately impact their quality of life. HOW: By implementing alternative avenues to share input on county decisions, specically for the majority of residents who are unable to attend weekly commission meetings. Focus on making Charlotte County a nic er place to live and visit. HOW: By pushing for enhanced beautication and maintenance of our public landscape by strategically working to remove the Venice Womens Health Center, the only abortion clinic in Charlotte County, and by committing to consistently vote on issues in accordance to family values and Christian ethics. Q: What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? A: I will be able to leverage the relationships, resources and knowledge that Ive gained over the past six years as a county employee to make an immediate impact. Working within the county has provided me with a unique perspective of the breakdowns in communication and issues that directly resulted in many of the challenges we are currently facing. I am a nationally recognized leader in the areas of public relations, streamlining local government operations, economic development and disaster recovery. During my time with the county, I have: addressed and eliminated ood insurance rate increases; saved local ad valorem taxpayer dollars by garnering an excess of $12 million in state and federal funds; contributed to Charlotte Countys bud get reduction process in 2008, successfully reducing it by $300 million annually; received an award at the White House for my efforts in diversifying Charlotte Countys economy, gar nering our community national attention and the opportunity to have our issues heard at the federal level.

A: Since I have been on the board, I have encouraged airline service to Punta Gorda. I want to see it continue and move forward, and entice another airline to go to a hub for further destinations. Q: What do you hope to accomplish? What are the big issues you see that need tackling? A: We are working on the expansion of the terminal to accommodate more passengers and stay debt-free. We are identied as a foreign trade zone airport, and I would like to be present and work on this project when the need arises. Q: What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? A: When I came on the board, we were just a general aviation airport. Since that time, I have helped to get the tower and both terminals built. I have 40 years of experience in general aviation, and 7,000 hours of ight time in singleand multiengine aircraft. I was appointed by the (Federal Aviation Administration) as a ight safety counselor for 12 years.

A: I was encouraged by numerous Charlotte County residents and community leaders who know my background would be an asset to the governance of the (Charlotte County) Airport Authority, which inherently contributes to the countys economic growth. Q: What do you hope to accomplish? What are the big issues you see that need tackling? A: The accomplishments of the Airport Authority (in the) past and current history and are not arguable. I believe I have the energy and vision, as evidenced by my experience and accomplishments of record, to provide input in meeting the challenges that the growth of the airport and county are met. I am concerned that the Airport Authority has not pursued adequate revenue sources, common to airports, to maintain nancial stability to support its forecasted growth and its future development in a timely manner. Airport growth and expansion (create) additional, and many times unforeseen, nancial burdens. The airport has gone very rapidly from a general aviation facility to a commercial service airport, which needs to be seen as a front door to Charlotte County, reecting all that we have to offer. We need to work on customer service, not only to airline passengers, but (also) to the general and corporate aviation users, enhancing the airports image. Establish a better communications vehicle for airport users on pending authority decisions. Q: What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent?

Friday, August 15, 2014 Page 5 FLORIDA SENATE DISTRICT 30Q: Why are you running for re-election? A: Since 2010, I have fought to prioritize the hardworking families of our state, protect our children, create opportunities for their future, keep the promises weve made to our seniors, honor the brave men and women in uniform, and preserve our natural resources that serve as the foundation of Floridas economy. If given the honor to continue serving the people of Southwest Florida, I will keep ghting to move our state forward. Q: What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see that need tackling? A: Understanding that our economy is inextricably linked to our environment, this year, we prioritized more than $231 million to help treat and store water. This includes $18 million to support the construction of the Caloosahatchee C-43 West Basin Storage Reservoir project that will store water and help keep harmful releases from Lake Okeechobee away from the Caloosahatchee River and Estuary. We secured $500,000 for each estuary in the Northern Estuaries Resource Recovery Pilot Program to re-establish oyster populations and sea grass beds in the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries; $790,135 for a Reclaimed Water Transmission Main Crossing between the cities of Cape Coral and Fort Myers, which will go a long way to help clean up the water in the Caloosahatchee; and $900,000 for the Punta Gorda Reverse Osmosis Plant to improve drinking water long-term. While I am proud of these accomplishments, there is much work to be done to ensure we continue on this path of progress. Q: What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? A: I am a proven conservative who has fought to cut taxes, reduce job-killing regulations and get the hardworking people of Florida back to work. Since 2010, unemployment has dropped nearly 5 percent, and weve balanced the budget every year. Compiled by Adam KregerLizbeth Benacquisto, incumbent RepublicanLIZBETH BENACQUISTOAge: 46 Where you live: Fort Myers Where youre from: Rockville Centre, N.Y.; moved to Florida in 1978 Family: married to Bruce; two children Education: bachelors degree in organizational management Profession: Realtor; marketing consultant BENACQUISTO Q: Why did you decide to run for this seat? A: I have lost condence in our government ofcials and am demanding a return to common sense and compliance with our U.S. and Florida Constitutions. Those who are incumbent have allowed Common Core to be the law in Florida, in-state tuition for illegal aliens, infringements on Florida small businesses, and have done next to nothing to clean our Florida waters. Its time for fresh ideas, real business abilities and strong leadership to take the reins in Tallahassee, and, once again, I am being called to serve. I want to make Florida strong, sovereign and a role model for the rest of the country. I want to be proud of my community, and will serve to make it and others proud as well. Q: What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? A: In my rst year, I aim to repeal Common Core (including its other brand names) from Florida, and establish law that preserves our Constitutional Second Amendment rights in the event an Executive Order is released that might infringe upon said rights. In addition to those immediate actions, I will introduce new budgeting models that would allow for multi-year planning to facilitate tangible progress on megaprojects, such as the Everglades restoration. I also intend to lead streamlining efforts to signicantly reduce the bureaucracy of Florida permitting processes, so that businesses will nd Florida friendly for growth, resulting in jobs and greater sate revenue. Clearly, some of the most significant issues of importance to Southwest Florida include our K-12 education system, clean water, small business and preserving our Constitutional rights. Our K-12 education system must not include Common Core and shall be dened by our local education board, parents and teachers. Presently, the quality of our water is much less than desirable, and turning away tourists from our local service industry. We must address our water-quality issues with meaningful action and budget, otherwise our economy will be compromised. Southwest Florida has no large corporations, and small businesses are the primary means of employment. We must remove non-valueadded bureaucratic constraints on business growth and encourage new industries to add to our economic engine. And I am a erce defender of the 10th Amendment, and will stand strong and speak loudly against federal overreach into our state business. Q: What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? A: I have real business experience with nancial responsibility; my opponent does not. Representing the people of Southwest Florida in the state Senate requires a leader who has nancial business skills, demonstrated management capacity and capability, dedication to public service, and the ability to get things done. At the age of 18, I answered the call to action when Iran overran our embassy I enlisted in the U.S. Army. Rising to the rank of sergeant, for over seven years I served overseas, defending our freedom and liberty. Upon returning to civilian life, I entered the complex and heavily regulated aviation, space and defense industry. Starting as a quality engineer, I worked my way from the shop oor to the boardroom to the highest levels of the Federal Aviation Administration in Washington, D.C. And, for the past 13 years, I have owned a small business, with 11 of those years being in Lee County. I will apply my business and government experience to reduce bureaucracy in Tallahassee, and assert my leadership abilities to break through the stalemates that reside in politics. My understanding of the Constitution will make me a good steward of our rights and defender of state powers against the overreach of the federal government. Compiled by Adam KregerMichael J.

Friday, August 15, 2014 Page 9 STATE HOUSE REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT 74The winner of the Republican primary between Richard DeNapoli and Julio Gonzalez faces two write-in candidates in November. Why did you decide to run for this seat? Having been adopt ed and raised by my maternal grandpar ents and caring for them through the last stages of their life has afforded me a per spective and oppor tunity to want to give back to my community and promote conservative Republican ideals. I believe that lowering taxes and smaller government will lead to economic prosperity and more high-quality and higher-paying jobs for Floridians. Using my training as a certied nancial planner, I want to seek out and eliminate wasteful government spending, protect law-abiding and legal residents from taxpayer-funded giveaways to illegal aliens, and safeguard the promises given to our seniors by former elected ofcials. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? There are three big issues that are on the minds of the voters of South Sarasota County: Jobs and the economy I want to attract new, high-quality and high-paying jobs to South Sarasota County while helping existing ones grow. Eliminating wasteful government spending and overly burdensome regulations that hurt small businesses. Stopping illegal immigration and securing our borders. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? As a certified financial planner professional, I know how to balance a budget and help families and seniors plan for the future. Also, as former Florida Real Estate commissioner for the last six years, I worked to reduce excessive government regulations while still protecting the public from unscrupulous individuals. I served as a local Republican Party county chair man where I grew up and fought for conservative values. Ive been knocking on thousands of voters doors throughout South Sarasota County for almost a year now and understand the issues that are important to them. My experience in these areas sets me apart and makes me uniquely qualified to help grow Floridas economy and build a bright future for our children and grandchildren.Richard DeNapoliAge: 37 Political party: Republican. Where do you reside/How long have you lived in the area: On the island of Venice. I am also a native Floridian. Family: Married to Brigita DeNapoli with one child, Victor, 2. We are expecting another child in December. Education: New York University, B.A. in politics and B.A. in Italian; Fordham University School of Law, J.D.; University of Miami Law School, LL.M. in estate planning (masters of law). Work history: I was a former prosecutor and also a trust officer for The Northern Trust Company. I am currently a certified financial planner, attorney and small businessman. Community involvement: Venice Area Chamber of Commerce; Epiphany Cathedral, parishioner and lector; Venice Area Board of Realtors; Sarasota Association of Realtors; Sarasota Republican Party; former Broward Republican Party chairman and treasurer; Nova Area Republican Club, Republican Club of South Sarasota County; North Port Area Republican Club, Sarasota County Bar Association. Previous governmental offices held: Florida Real Estate Commission, commissioner, 2007-2013; Florida Real Estate Commission, chairman, 2010-2011. DENAPOLI Why did you decide to run for this seat? I decided to run for state representative out of a concern for the direction in which our country is headed. Our legislative decisions have immense impacts on our communities and countrys state of affairs. The quality of those decisions are directly related to the quality of representation we, the people, furnish. As a practicing physician, a veteran, a small-business owner, a recent graduate from law school, and most importantly, a 10-year resident of South Sarasota County, I have a unique set of insights and experiences to offer to the Legislatures common body of knowledge. It was therefore my duty to offer to represent my district. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? The biggest, over arching issues are guaranteeing responsible representation in the Legislature and asserting the peoples rights in the legislative arena. As long as I provide measured, studied and honest representation while listening to the desires of the constituents, I will be in a position to provide South County voters with a strong and effective voice at the House of Representatives. There will always be challenges with scal policy, health care delivery, our educational system and environmental concerns, among others, but the most important issue for the voters and the legislator is to make sure that the peoples voices are heard and that the representation is honest and measured. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? I am the only Republican candidate who has lived in this community for any considerable period of time and who is fully beholden to this community. I am the only candidate who can bring the experiences and insights associated with being both a physician and an attor ney to the Legislature (there are presently two physicians serving in the House of Representatives out of 120 members, and none in the Senate). I am the only candidate who has traveled overseas in defense of our country and served in harms way alongside the men and women of our armed forces. I am the only Republican candidate who has stood up to run for this ofce out of a duty to serve my community and to provide it an effective voice in the Legislature.Julio Gonzalez Age: 56 Political party: Republican. Where do you reside/How long have you lived in the area: Moved to Venice in 2004, currently reside there. Family: Wife, Gina; daughters, Monica and Jessica. Education: University of Miami School of Medicine, Portsmouth Naval Hospital, U.S.Navy Flight Surgery School, University of Florida Medical Center in Jacksonville, Stetson University College of Law. Work history: Accepted a commission to the U.S.Naval Reserve as part of the U.S.Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Program. In 1992, was deployed aboard the aircraft carrier USS America. Twice deployed to the Mediterranean Sea and the Persian Gulf during conflicts in Yugoslavia, Gulf Storm and Somalia. Stationed at Naval Air Station Cecil Field in Jacksonville, Fla. After completing military service, pursued post-graduate training in knee reconstructive and shoulder surgery in Orlando before joining the practices of doctors Baker, Heard, Osteen and Davenport. Relocated to Venice in 2004, and as an active member of Venice Regional Medical Centers (now Bayfront Health) medical community, has been elected chief of surgery, chief of staff, staff representative to the Hospitals Board of Trustees and chair of its Medical Executive Committee. Currently, an orthopaedic surgeon practicing in Venice.

Page 10 Friday, August 15, 2014 NORTH PORT CITY COMMISSION SEAT 4If none of the candidates for Seat 4 or 5 on the North Port City Commission receives 50 percent-plus-one of the vote in the primary, the top two vote-getters for both seats continue on to runoffs in November. The City Commission is a nonpartisan board. Why did you decide to run for this seat? About six months before I retired on June 28, 2013, as manager of Sarasota Countys Parks and Recreation Department, I made the decision to run for ofce. I felt with my 26-plus years of government experience and living in North Port for 27-plus years, I would have something to contribute to the operation of the city. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? Strengthening the relationship between the city and Sarasota County. Focus on sustaining a balanced budget and not having to go into our reserves. Concentrate on the operation of Warm Mineral Springs. Keep an eye on our capital improvement projects and make sure they stay on track. Work closely with Economic Development staff and city manager to bring business into North Port. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? I believe that my 26-plus years of government service has given me the understanding of how government should be run. Ive learned how to listen to other people. I have lived in North Port for over 27 years and have seen good times and bad, and I feel I understand what the people want. I have served on the Sarasota County management team for union negotiations with the teamsters. I have been responsible for a budget in the millions and 50 employees. I have served as liaison for the county to the cities of North Port, Venice and Sarasota and have negotiated agreements with nonprot organizations, the Sarasota County School Board and other organizations. I feel the city needs someone who is willing to listen and negotiate when needed.Jack ColliganAge: 62 How long lived in North Port: 27years, since February 1987.

I have a positive energy, vision and love for my chosen hometown. I noticed the need for a clear direction and wider community involvement in a unied direction. Jobs were being lost and focus on economic development was waning. There seemed to be a disconnect between the actions of the commissioners and the desires of the residents and businesses. I felt inspired to bring my life and business experience to the public sector to make a positive difference in North Port by focusing on vision, jobs and community pride. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? My focus is on vision, jobs and community pride. I will focus on the development of a community-based and implementable plan of where North Port is going and how we are going to get there. I will actively work to attract new businesses that will create quality jobs, promote educational and workforce training, help local businesses thrive and expand, foster government that is easy to do business with and that is accountable to residents and businesses, restore trust among residents and the city, and nurture a culture that welcomes diverse people and ideas. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? My opponents seem like decent people and I genuinely appreciate their willingness to throw their hats into the ring of public service. What I know voters will get when they elect me, is a seasoned business professional with 30 years in leadership roles in AT&T domestically and internationally, a graduate of the North Port Leadership Institute and a certied consultant with the Gulf Coast Community Foundation. I am someone who is equipped to make decisions about budgets, capital projects, policies and importantly, the future of North Port. Since I have no direct government experience, I will bring a fresh perspective as a public servant responsible for bringing plans and people together for a healthy, thriving community. I believe my naturally collaborative and inclusive style coupled with a decisive bias for action will be a positive for our city.Jacqueline MooreAge: 64 How long lived in North Port: Eightyears.

The role of a city commissioner is to work together and set policy to ensure businesses have their needed resources, neighborhoods are desirable places to be and city services are effective. North Port is poised to experience its most growth in decades over the next four years. Whats needed is a commissioner who has demonstrated a strong knowledge base and understands the importance of attention to detail. Being the only candidate in the race with a voting record and real government experience, this gives me the tools to perform in an exceptional manner a manner the North Port residents deserve. As a peacetime veteran and career airline pilot, I have had over a decade of grounding. Certied as a Boeing 767 pilot, I am humbled the Federal Aviation Administration has placed condence in me to y hundreds of our men and women in uniform miles across the Atlantic. The FAA has years of documentation of my ability to understand relationships, demonstrate a strong knowledge base, perform practically and pay attention to detail. In the performance of these tasks, the slightest lapse could cost many people their lives. This has been my daily responsibility for many years. As a commissioner, I will treat the commission seat with the same seriousness and respect as the cockpit seat. I will take a leave of absence from aviation to work for you. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? First, the need for a faster and less costly permitting and order of approval process. Today this process can take several months and be very expensive for a small business owner who wants to do business in North Port. In order to x this process, a candidate must rst understand it. My years of experience on the citys Planning and Zoning Advisory Board has provided me with an intimate knowledge of this process. It will be my rst agenda item. Next, the need to x the citys everincreasing health care costs. Director Robin Carmichael has outlined a serious plan to pay out of the Cigna and Florida Blue health care plans to enter into a city self-paid pool plan that will save us millions. This is real substance and not just colorful talk. As a commissioner I will vote to give her the tools she needs to accomplish this to help balance the budget. Finally, the need to build relationships on the City Commission and with the Sarasota County Commission, forged in shared goals, shared knowledge and mutual respect that will result in high-performance relationships, and fostering good decisions based on shared knowledge, not emotion. To that end, the citizens of North Port will realize faster results and effectiveness from this board, and earn respect throughout the county and even the state. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? Through a masters level education and command responsibility in heavy aircraft, I have learned the art of critical thinking and strategic decision-making. I possess an understanding of the importance of relationship-building and emotional discipline that will be a serious concern for the next occupant of the City Commissions Seat 4. Also, my years of volunteer service on the citys Planning and Zoning Advisory Board has given me the inside track. Not only with a proven quasi-judicial voting record and a practical knowledge of the Unied Land Development Code (the citys code governing land usage), but PZAB has also afforded me years of experience with Roberts Rules of Order, which will give me the ability, on day one, to demonstrate the highest levels of performance and information-sharing in a meeting environment. North Port is poised to experience, in ve years, the most growth it has in decades. We cant afford to let the next four years be a training course for the commissioner occupying Seat 4.Lorenzo WhiteheadAge: 37 How long lived in North Port: Fouryears. Family: Married; three children.

Friday, August 15, 2014 Page 11 Why did you decide to run for this seat? Taxpayers hate wasteful spending. An example is after a director purchased a $400,000 asphalt paving machine to repair roads, it sat in the maintenance yard for years because no one knew how to operate it. It was later sold at auction. Two years ago, a $100,000 machine was bought for water and sewer projects. It sits unused because no ones trained to operate it. Ill ask for accountability and justication of extraordinary purchases. Recently, a $400,000 replacement tank was put on the consent agenda for a water system that is less than 2 years old. It passed without any questions or explanation to taxpayers of why it was necessary. Is that water system failing? Residents need to feel welcome on city boards. The small business community is somewhat ignored by the city. Theres a strained relationship with the county that must be repaired. The county has resources and funding opportunities available to the city that are sometimes overlooked. Theres a lack of common sense on some decision-making. Residents arent explained the nancial impacts of commissioners decisions. For example, closing Warm Mineral Springs cost thousands. Taxpayers werent warned they would be paying to rent fencing and security and for alligator removal instead of seeing that money used for community park projects like the design of a pool, extension of trails or a regional park with much-needed football elds. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? Id like to bring more services to the east side of town. Residents feel forgotten without sidewalks, stop signs and lighting. The Parks Department could do more programing. Id bring back the festival to after the Poinsettia Parade instead of on a Friday night. Id work to secure Bayite a longer contract. I will work on a real plan for the Springs and follow what the adjacent landowner plans to do to possibly partner upfront in water and sewer costs. Id have the city manager ask staff to apply for grants for splash pads citywide. Id work with the county and Venice on a regional park. Id move the veterans ofce to downstairs at City Hall. We need a workshop on permits. Id invite business owners and residents to tell the city whats not working with the process. Id work with the School Board for joint opportunities that will benet the city. It could help bring jobs through programs at SCTI. Residents are tired of leaving North Port for entertainment, yet, nonprot groups say its too costly to rent city facilities and the process is overwhelming to have events on city property. Id try to have Social Services to go to schools every other month to help families with resources. Id ask for the mowing schedule in North Port Estates and updates on its progress. I will want to see the road resurfacing schedule too. I will ght for nighttime meetings so working parents can be there. The city isnt being transparent when people cannot attend meetings because they are held at 1 p.m. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? Ive lived and worked for the city for years and have paid attention to the behind-the-scenes details for decades. I remember the sins of commissioners past, like not acquiring land along Price Boulevard back in 2000 when the Road and Drainage director asked to buy it cheap for his vision of future widening. Those decisions and lost opportunities impact us today. I will ask questions of management and expect accountability. Some of the inghting with management and the unions costs taxpay ers money over potential communication issues, pride or disrespect. Morale issues create productivity problems that trickle down to residents. Some employees are afraid to speak up and offer their cost-saving ideas. Taxpayers expect answers and availability of city staff and commissioners. They want to be alerted of emergencies, disasters or crisis situations like a missing child or intense police activity, quickly through social media or email blasts. The citys website isnt effective for that. I will be receptive to residents. I will answer emails and phone calls. I will represent the city professionally and offer common sense and practical suggestions and solutions during meetings and workshops in and out of North Port. Im not a politician, but a former blue-collar city employee with a solid customer service work ethic who wants whats best for the majority of residents.

I also volunteer at The Salvation Army. Prior government offices held: None. EMRICH Why did you decide to run for this seat? As a husband, father, son, brother and friend to loved ones who live in North Port, I have a desire to see the city prosper. The historical and natural resources found in North Port give us a sense of place and provide an identity for our city. I will work to nd a balance between these resources and the businesses, industries, homes and infrastructure that dene the city of North Port. I want to see North Port grow and thrive to be a beacon to other cities and communities. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? Freshwater resources and future availability are my main concern for the city of North Port. As the only three year-round owing springs south of I-4 are located within the municipal boundaries of North Port, utilization and preservation of these resources is essential for the city. Strengthening the bonds between the city of North Port and Sarasota County is also a top priority. I have worked with the county in several capacities and built relationships over the years. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? As I have grown up in the area, I am familiar with the histories of North Port and the sur rounding communities. I am also aware of local resources. I am involved in numerous community education projects; I have volunteered time to serve my community for decades. My leadership qualities, balanced with honesty and integrity, will serve to strengthen our city. For others to perceive what is honor able about North Port, we must have leadership with these character strengths.Bill GoetzAge: 37 How long lived in North Port: 20years. Family: Wife of 13years, Jenifer; son Elijah, 13; daughter Lily, 8. Community involvement: I have served on the Sarasota County Historical Commission for over twoyears and am vice chair of the Sarasota County Historical Marker Committee. I am president of the Ancient Waters Foundation and vice president of the Friends of Little Salt Spring. Previous governmental offices held: None. GOETZ Why did you decide to run for this seat? North Port is at a crossroads in its development. The citizens can decide whether or not they want a real city that has economic opportunities for students graduating from North Port High School and young adults who want to live in North Port and raise a family, or become another retirement community that eventually will die due to the lack of new businesses and younger adults willing to invest in businesses and homes. In order for us to become a real city, we need to expand our economic viability and diversify our economy. The only way to do this is to promote the city as a great place to live and has skilled and career jobs. Warm Mineral Springs needs to be a focal point for our development and promotion as a destination location for tourists and locals alike. We can use the promotion of WMS to bring people to North Port who will eventually settle down here and bring businesses and educational opportunities to the city. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? The need for economic diversity and skilled jobs. The development of a city that provides a high quality of life and has the jobs available to support and educate the workforce. Strategic budgets that will provide not only a guideline to new parks, facilities and businesses, but have the nancial forecasts to go with those ideas and principles. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? As a CPA and business owner, I see the problems facing both individuals and businesses in the city. In addition, I have the knowledge, education and experience to facilitate the municipal functions and oversee the work of the city manager not to replace him, but to provide strategic longterm direction that doesnt change based on the latest polls or whims of the commissioners.Mark KlingelAge: 66 How long lived in North Port: 13years.

Page 12 Friday, August 15, 2014 NORTH PORT CITY COMMISSION SEAT 5Why did you decide to run for this seat? North Port needs a unifying leadership presence on the City Commission. I offer practical solutions to the most important issues that I feel are facing North Port now and in the foreseeable future. I have well over two decades of experience dealing with government operations on both sides of the public/ private sector fence. I am well-versed in all aspects of land-use regulation, franchise administration, budget development and the economics of government intervention. I see what needs to be done, I know how to do it and can provide the leadership presence to make sure it all happens in the most efcient and effective way possible. We can do better, much better and now is the time to get started. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? We need a unifying leadership presence on the City Commission. I feel we need to start making reasonable decisions based on a disciplined, intelligent analysis of accurate and timely information with due consideration for potential liabilities associated with the decisions we do make. I am confident I can be that unifying presence. It is past time to shift our focus to the future of North Port and start preparing to benet fully from the prosperity that I believe is rapidly coming our way. Forbes Online rates North Port as the eighth fastest-growing city in the U.S. for 2014. To date, we have done little, if anything, to pave the way. I feel that we have a choice to make either we handle the future, or the future will handle us. Refocus the City Commission solely on the efcient and effective provision of municipal services and stop attempting to participate in competitive business activities best left to the private sector. We are a municipal government. We should not be in the real estate development business, or hotel business, or spa business, or anything else that does not pertain directly to the provision of municipal services especially banking and loan services for the private sector.

I have held no elected government offices to date. MACKENZIE Why did you decide to run for this seat? In 2012, the city of North Port partnered with Sarasota County to purchase Warm Mineral Springs for $5.5 million. At the time, there were visions by both to turn this attraction into a world-class destination. In November 2012, there was an election that changed everything. Two new commissioners, along with Linda Yates, decided they wanted to keep the Springs as a park only for swimming. One commissioner even suggested the Springs be sold to the private sector. After numerous meetings between the county and city, an agreement could not be reached by either. The city refused to go along with an invitation to negotiate (ITN) and eventually the 30-month agreement between operator Cypress Lending and the county and city expired, and the Springs closed in June 2013. Along with the closure came the loss of 60 jobs and $700,000 payroll to the city. The actual impact to the community hasnt as yet been fully determined. The Springs reopened in April 2014 with a short-term arrangement of six months, while both parties tried to seek a long-term agreement with interested parties. This however fell apart in June 2014 when both could not agree again. The county has offered to sell its half of the Springs to North Port, but as of yet this is still to be determined. If nothing is done the Springs will once again close on Aug. 31. This commission is polarized and unable to agree on anything. That is why Im running for ofce. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? Economic development, jobs and a clear plan to the future. At the present time, the city has pretty much destroyed the Economic Development Department within the city. The city has taken all of the economic development funding out of the upcoming budget and replaced the head of the department with the assistant, who will now be a liaison between the county and interested parties who would like to develop here. This in effect closes economic development by the city. I will work closely with the private sector and the Economic Development Board right here in our city and also with the countys Economic Development Department. Jobs not just jobs, but good-paying jobs are needed here in North Port. Most of our workers have to travel to North County or further to get a decent job. We need to bring those jobs here to North Port. By doing this, we give our people more spendable income right here in our city. Sarasota County Technical Institute is almost a reality here in North Port. Negotiations are ongoing with banks to nalize a land purchase in the Toledo Blade area. Once completed, this technical school will produce talented people from which businesses can draw upon, which will also encourage businesses to relocate to our area. The city has a longrange plan on hand right now, however, this plan seems to be constantly modied or changed to enable present projects to be completed or done. We need a rm plan with which we can draw upon for our future growth. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? Since I rst moved here permanently, I have been attending commission meetings and have become friends with some commissioners who have helped me understand the way North Port government works. You would be surprised what you can learn just sitting at these meetings and which commissioner is or isnt doing a good job. By sitting at these meetings, one of the most important things I learned was to listen to the people. Most of our citizens feel that they do not have a voice or an ear when they try to talk to the commissioners. You cant learn this from books. The running of North Port is not rocket science or anything close to it. Pay attention, use common sense in your decisions and you will be right 99 percent of the time. I know by sitting as a commissioner, with my people skills, I could do an excellent job.Marty MurphyAge: 71 How long lived in North Port: We bought our house in 2004 and came for the winters, then finally moved here permanently in 2010.

Friday, August 15, 2014 Page 13 Why did you decide to run for re-election? It has been an honor to serve the community for the past three years. I remain passionate and committed in my advocacy for manageable growth, affordable living and pursuing opportunities that bring jobs and improve the quality of life in our community. Since elected in 2010, I have successfully challenged the practice of business as usual in city government and dont hesitate to take a strong stance on important issues such as reducing attorney fees, keeping Bayite in North Port, business-friendly policies, more sensible assessments, not giving Warm Mineral Springs to a private entity at the publics expense and risk, lien reduction policy, streamlined permitting and eliminating inefcient programs. Through policy changes and operational efciencies, our city has not only weathered the impacts of the recession but has stayed on track with many projects. By 2013, the number of registered businesses in North Port grew 16.5 percent from 2010, and each year our population has also grown. North Port has attracted national retailers as well as a state-of-the-art assisted-living facility anticipated to generate 370 jobs, and has been recognized as one of the top 100 places in the nation for business and careers, second most affordable community nationally, among the top 15 cleanest cities in the U.S., and among the top 10 small cities to move to. While much has been accomplished there is more to be done, and it would be an honor to continue serving the community and keeping the positive momentum going. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? North Port continues to be the fastestgrowing city in the region and with that comes increased demand for services and infrastructure improvements. While the economy is slowly recovering from the recession, most taxpayers are still struggling with limited or reduced income. Balancing city resources to meet the demands of our growing community will require continuing to seek alternative funding sources and creative ways to minimize tax increases while achieving enhanced services and amenities. Warm Mineral Springs will be an even greater economic engine for the city once the public and private sector are assured that it will remain open without interruption. This can be achieved by the city acquiring sole ownership of the Springs, without using property tax revenue, and retaining full control of the swimming area using a management company while business-type services and appropriate development would be contracted separately with private entities. The current management arrangement, which is what I proposed to avoid the clos ing in June 2013, has shown that the swimming operation since April 2014 is self-sustaining. Done the right way, the Springs will be protected and will attract tourists for its wellness, historical and ecological attributes. Continue improving policies, practices, codes and permitting processes to enhance quality of life and emphasize the citys business-friendly environment to attract more jobs. Ensuring reasonable codes and policies will strengthen our foundation to achieve the communitys established vision and goals identied in the comprehensive plan and long-range strategic plan. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? Since my election in 2010 I have demonstrated my unwavering service as the reliable voice in looking out for the public, always researching issues, listening to concerns, asking tough questions and challenging the status quo. Equally important is my continuous communication and accessibility to all residents and businesses. When I was elected in 2010, our city was faced with economic challenges. Based on previous spending trends, the city was on the verge of depleting its general fund reserves by 2013. Through cost-cutting measures, consolidation, reprioritizing projects and strategic use of surplus reserves, at the close of scal year 2013, the general fund reserve balance was at $10.7 million. Despite the recession, today North Port is thriving and has accomplished operational efciencies, maintained adequate reserves, enhanced public services, elevated community pride, achieved national and regional recognition, and continued to grow every year in population, businesses and jobs. My efforts have helped achieve progress keeping in stride with the communitys vision of a city that is scally responsible, environmentally friendly, safe, clean, attractive and vibrant with diverse opportunities. On a state and national level I have advocated on legislative issues that impact North Port including CDBG, CST, Sober Homes, municipal bond tax exemptions and transportation funding. I would be one of only two commissioners serving with experience prior to 2012 and fundamental knowledge of the innerworkings of city operations.Linda Yates, incumbentAge: 50 How long lived in North Port: Eightyears.

Previous governmental offices held: North Port city commis sioner Seat 5 since 2010. YATES NORTH PORT CITY COMMISSION SEAT 5NORTH PORT Before the lines were even drawn, North Port voters will have the opportunity to nix a charter amendment that would require City Commission candidates to reside in a district in order to qualify for election. A question on the primary ballot asks city voters whether they want to delete a provision they already voted in favor of creating. In November 2012, 57 percent of North Porters voted to add ve districts to the citys charter. The change would require commissioners to live in one of ve laid-out areas in order to run as a candidate for commission. After the provision was decided upon, the 2016 general election was chosen as the rst election in which candidates would have to follow the new guidelines. In March, commissioners said the residents vote in favor of the district issue may not have been an informed one, and opted to put a referendum back on the ballot that would give voters the chance to delete the district residency provision from the charter, a move they said would help North Porters better under stand the decision they previously made. That vote was 4-1, with Mayor Jim Blucher dissenting. At the end of May, commissioners approved 3-2 the second reading of the proposed ordinance, with Linda Yates and Blucher dissenting. Yates has stated numerous times that she was not in favor of reballoting the district issue, saying the commissioners had the responsibility of listening to residents and voters. I didnt support putting it on the ballot. In respect of the voters who were asked a question in 2012, theyve spoken, she said in late July. Whether or not I agree (with districting) is irrelevant. This is a democratic process, and we need to respect them. Yates said the residents she has heard from who were in favor of drawing up districts were not overly particular about the type of districts. For those who wanted it, it doesnt matter if its resident districts or representative districts. Thats what Ive found out about this issue coming up. Should voters say, we dont want to repeal this we will have until the end of December to draw those lines, she said. The district lines would have to be drawn during a busy rst 90 days for soonto-be new in-house city attorney Mark Moriarty. Yates said he would likely help to get the lines drawn for the ve districts if the amendment deleting the residency provision is rejected by voters. The issue would be up to Moriarty, though a special magistrate or judge could be brought in for the proj ect if needed. Yates also spoke about the ballot itself. Im very concerned with the ballot and way the question is on there and when its being re-balloted. The rst referendum was on the general elections. We had over 20,000 people vote then, she said. Now with the primary, well only have a small percentage of that. Blucher has also voiced his concern over the district charter amendments reballoting. I dont think its proper timing for districting. (But) the public has voted, and I think we need to respect that. It doesnt pay to question the voters like that, he said in May.Email: sgholar@sun-herald.comDistricts back on North Port ballotBy SAMANTHA GHOLARSTAFF WRITER ELECTIONI 4t

As a small business owner, I know what it means to sign the front of a paycheck, not just the back. This will offer a private sector philosophy to local government, limited government and limited taxes. As a public ofcial I also know the importance of accountability and transparency. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? I believe the most signicant countywide issue is the funding of road infrastructure. In recent years, capital costs have escalated signicantly and reliance on the current matrix for funding will most likely be inadequate. The county should utilize more of a hybrid funding program. This should include impact fees, penny surtax revenues and most importantly, support from state and local governments. Also, more attention should be directed to gaining community condence that projects are being completed in an equitable manner, meaning no specic area of the county is being favored or neglected over another. In addition, working more collaboratively with our municipalities on issues like homelessness and comprehensive planning is very important. These issues provide to great of a challenge to address unilaterally. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? My record on the Sarasota City Commission illustrates that I am not afraid to tackle the challenges that come with difcult issues. As a small business owner, I have been an advocate for economic development and scal responsibility. If elected to the County Commission, I will represent and act in the best interest of the entire county. As a city commissioner, my policy has been to meet with and work with anyone; this will not change. We have a wonderful county and we can all work together to make it even better.Paul CaragiuloAge: 40 Political party: Republican. Where do you do reside/How long have you lived in the area: Sarasota; moved to the area in 1990 from New York. Family: Wife, Nicola (Nikki); two daughters, Sophie and Caroline.

CARAGIULO The winner of the Republican Sarasota County Commission District 2 contest faces an unaffiliated candidate, Alexandra Coe, and two write-in opponents in November. Why did you decide to run for this seat? I decided to run when the county ethics ofcer was red. One of my top priorities is to return integrity to Sarasota County government. If you want status quo, I am not your candidate. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? I am opposed to changing the 2050 plan. The abandonment of scal neutrality will place the cost of growth onto the taxpayer. It will also set up competition for infrastructure dollars at the cost of South County projects. In my many years of serving on the City Planning Board, I have learned the negative effects that urban sprawl has on our community. Only with proper planning will Sarasota County maintain its high quality of life. I want to return integrity to Sarasota County government. The homeless issue needs to be addressed. A come-as-you-are shelter will not solve the problem. It has no requirements on the homeless and will only perpetuate the increase of homelessness in our community. Chronic homelessness is costly to our community. Currently, 20 percent of our county jail population is homeless. We cannot arrest our way out of the problem. I believe a better alternative is to establish a program that addresses the mental health and substance abuse of our homeless. We all agree that we want a clean and safe downtown. I do not support building a come-asyou-are shelter. It will not solve the homeless problem throughout the county. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? I have the proven leadership in protecting the taxpayers interests. I have never voted for a tax increase. My core values and ethical integrity will guide me as I represent everyone in Sarasota County, not the special interest groups.Shannon SnyderAge: 48 Political Party: Republican.

Friday, August 15, 2014 Page 15 SARASOTA COUNTY COMMISSION DISTRICT 4The winner of the Republican Sarasota County Commission District 4 contest faces Democrat Ray Porter and John Minder, who is running without party affiliation, in November. Why did you decide to run for this seat? Ive had a 30year interest in the working and financing of county government. Now that there are term limits and my retirement is completed, I felt the timing was appropriate. The achievement of my financial goals, along with finding all of my family in a good place, finalized my decision to file for the office now. Ive spent 30 years in Sarasota deeply involved in the business world, the nonprofit world, county and regional planning commissions, and civic involvement boards, and Ive worked with citizens in all parts of the county. I will be a calm, capable, technically competent, emotionally prepared member. I have built many budgets for many businesses in many places. I believe its time for an accountant and a planner who has negotiated many contracts and professional proposals to have a seat on the Sarasota Board of County Commissioners. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? Control the budget and taxes as an experienced small business owner with a degree in accounting, I am serious about controlling budgets. I know that we need to keep our expenses in line and live within our means to keep taxes low for our families, seniors and business owners. Grow and diversify our economy to sustain a vibrant community, we must grow and diversify our economy. Making Sarasota County an even better place to do business will create job opportunities for todays workers and our children in the future. Make our quality of life even better we are fortunate to live in such a beautiful community and I am committed to preserving and improving our wonderful quality of life. As your county commissioner, you can count on me to always make this my top priority. What makes you more qualified for the post than your opponents? For the past 30 years, I have lived, worked and built four businesses in our community, providing hundreds of well-paying jobs. My three children went to school here and they thrived here. I have two decades of public service on county, regional and state planning and decision-making boards. I have several decades of volunteer service on nonprofit boards, including Suncoast Blood Bank, Habitat for Humanity and Manasota Goodwill. I still serve on these nonprofits and on the Sarasota County Sheriffs Advisory Board. Ive served on the Nokomis Fire Commission and the boards of several chambers of commerce. For 30 years I have been a hardworking member of our community. I offer to the citizens of Sarasota County a calm, capable, technically competent, sturdy person. I am a lifelong conservative Republican. As an accountant and a certified planner, I will bring a new perspective to the board. My planning and accounting skills will help plan our future, repair and lay out our infrastructure needs, and make decisions about our $1.1 billion annual county budget.Alan MaioAge: 64 Political party: Republican. Where do you do reside/How long have you lived in the area: Nokomis resident for more than 30years. Family: Wife Nancy; three adult children. Education: Graduated from Seton Hall University. Work history: During my 30years of living in Sarasota County, I have built four businesses. My wife and I, for nearly two decades, have had a vacation rental business in Gatlinburg, Tenn. We still have this business. In addition, we had the two Frosted Mug restaurants in Sarasota County from 1984-1996.

Previous governmental offices held: None. MAIO Why did you decide to run for this seat? As a citizen advocate for 12 years, I wanted to continue to serve the community as a public servant. I want to be a part of our local government and help create policies that will take into account the concerns of the citizens of Sarasota County. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? Fiscal responsibility and accountability as Sarasota County faces a decit in 2017 with a long list of unfunded major capital projects, we need to tighten budgets and not spend money on things we dont absolutely need. Our tax dollars should be allocated to essential government services such as safety (Sheriffs Ofce and Fire) and improved roads. We should not make deals with developers to discount the purchase of county-owned land. Ethics the county must be transparent and ethical. We need to create an independent ethics commission elected by the Sarasota County voters. We should also put all county commissioners emails online (instead of the 1 percent now displayed). Being the voice of the citizens as an advocate of the citizens of Sarasota County for 12 years, I have listened to our local citizens concerns and comments. Citizens have asked for better roads, high-paying jobs and more scal accountability, and they expect high ethics and integrity from our leaders. As a county commissioner, I will continue to work hard as our citizens advocate. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? I am the true voice of Sarasota County citizens. I have volunteered hundreds of hours as a civic leader representing citizens with problems involving land use and zoning, protection of property values and controlling government spending and accountability.Lourdes RamirezAge: 52 Political party: Republican.

Page 16 Friday, August 15, 2014 SARASOTA COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD DISTRICT 1The Sarasota County School Board is a nonpartisan board. If no one in the District 1 race gets a majority of the votes in the primary, there will be a runoff in November between the top two vote-getters. Why did you decide to run for this seat? I began to consider running for the District 1 School Board seat late in 2012, in anticipation of my 2014 retirement from the school district. But the incumbent, Carol Todd, was a longtime friend and I would not have run against her. When she resigned this past March and when in April I saw who had filed to run, I felt I had to run to ensure our school systems excellence would continue. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? There are three big issues to be addressed: To expand our recent successful efforts at closing the achievement gap. The school district should work with local governments, foundations and community groups to expand pre-K programs so that entering kindergarten students are better prepared. Then, with flexibility provided by the Legislature to excellent school districts, our district can craft innovative programs that meet the needs of struggling students. The need to expand our efforts to connect with local employ ers to ensure their applicants have the proper skills and cer tifications. Sarasota County Technical Institutes recent successful precision machining class made possible by the cooperation of Career Edge, the local SAMA Manufacturers Association, Sarasota County and others needs to be replicated for other industries. The need to monitor the implementation and assessment of the Florida Standards. School Board members must ensure the standards are addressed through an appropriate cur riculum selected with teachers input, that all teachers receive proper professional development, that all instructional materials are appropriate and that the assessments are fair. We will then work with other districts, the Florida Department of Education and the Legislature to make necessary changes. I will work hard with my colleagues on each of these important issues. What makes you more qualified for the post than your opponents? I believe I am the most qualified candidate for the seat because experience matters. In April, I retired after 35 years in local public education, serving initially for nine years as Manatee County Schools first school social worker, strengthening families and assisting teachers. I later supervised the truancy program and the homeless student grant, and also led efforts to redraw school attendance zones. In 1995 I was hired by Sarasota County Schools as the elementary student services supervisor. Later I supervised the grants office, dropout prevention, charter schools, school choice, student assessment and attendance zones. For my final 11 years I was the director of long-range planning, acquiring property for future schools, collaborating with local governments, representing the School Board on all local planning commissions and leading prioritization of the capital budget. In addition to my work experience, I have been a community leader and volunteer at the local and state levels. I have been an active member of five local boards, twice serving as president, and have been president of two statewide professional organizations. I have been a volunteer tutor and mentor to students, and a volunteer visitor to senior shut-ins. I am known throughout the county as fair, honest, hard-working, a problem-solver, and not controlled by partisan politics or ideology. My work history, proven leadership, personal attributes, knowledge of Florida and its school laws, and love for this school district and county combine to make me the most qualified candidate.Ken MarshAge: 63 Where do you do reside/How long have you lived in the area: I moved to the area in 1979 so my daughter could start kindergarten here. For the past 18years I have lived on a sailboat on Longboat Key; for the past 10years we have been docked at a slip we own at the Longboat Key Club Moorings Marina. The home lifestyle provides a wonderful balance to my intense work pace. Family: I am married to Dr. Tanice Knopp, a retired university professor, former special education teacher and current coordinator of the Volunteer and Partnership Program for Sarasota County Schools. I have one daughter, Erin, a middle school science teacher. Education: In 1968 I entered Georgia Tech to pursue a degree in aeronautical engineering, but soon learned I had no affinity for engineering at all. In 1973 I graduated from the University of Georgia with a bachelor of science degree in psychology. In 1978 I graduated from the University of Georgia with a master of social work degree, with an emphasis in gerontology. In 1979 I received a post-masters certificate in gerontology, also from U.Ga. From 2003-04 I participated in an executive MBA program at University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee. I earned 24 credits but left the program when the schedule changed; my evening responsibilities at the school district precluded me continuing. In addition, for 14years I attained recognition in the Academy of Certified Social Workers; since 2008 I have maintained professional recognition in the American Institute of Certified Planners. Work history: Prior to my 35years of local public school work experience, I was a juvenile probation officer, a houseparent at a group home for delinquent boys, and a child abuse investigator. From 1987-1995, while employed by Manatee County Schools, I had a part-time private practice as a mental health counselor serving children and families. Community involvement: Over the past 35years I have been involved with many organizations, including the Manatee County United Way Board of Directors, American Cancer Society volunteer, SCOPE, JFCS Board of Directors and volunteer, Big Brothers Big Sisters mentor, Manatee Community Council for Children Board of Directors, Sarasota County School District reading tutor, Leadership Manatee, Leadership Tampa Bay, Sarasota Civic League Board of Directors, Temple Emanu-El Board of Trustees and the Manatee County Childrens Services Advisory Board. Previous governmental offices held: This is my first run for elected office. I did serve from 2003-14 as the Sarasota County School Boards representative to the Sarasota County Planning Commission, the city of Sarasota Planning Board, the city of Venice Planning Commission and the city of North Port Planning and Zoning Advisory Board. MARSH Y our source f or fishing,boating and outdoor newse very Thursday only in y our Sun newspaper Why did you decide to run for this seat? There is nothing more important to a parent than ensuring their child has access to a world-class education, as education is the great equalizer. Critical decisions made by the School Board that will affect how and what our children will learn. As a mother of a young child, I feel that it is crucial to have a board member who will serve as a representative of the parents. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? Ensuring the parents of Sarasota County have a voice on the School Board. We must open the lines of communication in order for parents voices to be heard and represented when it comes to our childrens education. Decisions must be made based on what is best at the local level. Ensuring we have scal responsibility and transparency when it comes to the spending of our hard-earned tax dollars. We are a well-funded school district. When we go through our budget, the question must always be, Is this in the best interest of our childrens education? If so, are the tax dollars being spent with the highest return on investment? Retaining and recruiting passionate, innovative and effective teachers. I believe education begins at home. However, teachers are a vital part of the equation. Outside of family, teachers play a crucial role in our childrens education and future success. We must focus on empowering our effective teachers and open lines of communication between the teachers and parents. A supportive partnership with teachers and parents will ensure accountability and success. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? As a businesswoman, an active member of our community and a mother of a young child, I will continue to provide a fresh perspective and a much-needed voice to our School Board. There are many issues facing the education of our children today. We need a representative for the parents and taxpayers whose sole focus is on providing the best education to the children of Sarasota County. Status quo is no longer an option.Bridget Ziegler Age: 32 Where do you reside/How long have you lived in the area: City of Sarasota resident for nearly the last fouryears. Family: Married to Christian Ziegler; daughter, Reagan Reese Ziegler. Education: Florida International University, marketing. Work history: Commercial insurance producer, Al Purmort Insurance. Community involvement: Republican Party of Sarasota County; Sarasota Republican Womens Club; Children First; MakeA-Wish Foundation; Gulf Coast Builders Exchange; Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce; Leadership Sarasota, Adult; Leadership Sarasota, Youth (co-chair, 2014-2015); Asolo Repertory Theater. Previous governmental offices held: None; appointed to the School Board District 1 seat in June by Gov. Rick Scott, filling the vacancy created by Carol Todd, who resigned in April. ZIEGLER

Friday, August 15, 2014 Page 17 SARASOTA COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD DISTRICT 1Why did you decide to run for this seat? There were issues I wanted to raise and I thought if I didnt take this chance to raise them, I would regret it. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? We need to restore the school resource ofcers to our elementary schools. To leave our youngest and most vulnerable population unprotected is, I believe, an invitation to tragedy. We have become comfortable and complacent with regard to our student achievement. Our recent FCAT scores and school grades underscore my point that we are sitting still and not moving forward. I want our teachers to be engaged in developing our next action plan. We need to begin moving forward and stop being satised to be a top ve district. We should be number one in Florida. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? I have been a student, parent, teacher and teacher representative in Sarasota County Public Schools. In addition I worked at the state level, serving two terms on the Education Standards Commission for the state of Florida. I was originally appointed by Gov. Bob Martinez and reappointed by Gov. Lawton Chiles. None of my opponents has the breadth of experience I have in the public schools of Sarasota County.Velton HodgesAge: 60 Where do you do reside/How long have you lived in the area: I am a native of Sarasota. Family: Married 36years; two daughters. Education: A.A. degree, Manatee Junior College (now State College of Florida); bache lors degree in education, University of Georgia; masters degree in education, University of Georgia. Work history: 34years as a teacher in Sarasota County Public Schools. Community involvement: Board member of United Way of Sarasota County, Allocations chair; board member of the Education Foundation. Previous governmental offices held: None. HODGES Why did you decide to run for this seat? In 2009, I retired as a professor at St. Bonaventure University in upstate New York and relocated to Sarasota, Fla. I was then offered a position as a reading specialist at Keiser University. When I heard of (former School Board member) Carol Todds resignation, I decided to seek the open seat on the Sarasota School Board. Based on my educational background and experiences, I believe that I am qualied to serve. My educational background includes a bachelors degree in elementary education, a masters degree in special education and a doctorate in reading and language arts. I taught eight years in the city of Pittsburgh, grades 4-8, before accepting a college position. During my tenure at St. Bonaventure University, I served as chair of the Graduate Reading Department for 24 years and as dean of the School of Education for 17 years. Additionally, I served on the Olean City Board of Education for 15 years. Currently, I am a board member of the Literacy Council of Sarasota. I truly enjoy working with board member, administrators, teachers and other members of the educational community to meet the needs of three constituencies: students/parents, school district employees and taxpayers. Based on my educational background, experiences and a passion for education, I believe that I am qualied to be a member of the Sarasota School Board. It would be an honor and a privilege to serve. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? I wholeheartedly support the implementation of the Florida Standards. In education, as in life, there are no panaceas, but I do believe that the Florida Standards (aka Common Core) can lead to higher student achievement. As a professor, I have witnessed the decline of reading skills in our college students for the last 40 years. Certainly, there will be growing pains and missteps along the way, but I do not doubt the nobility of the Common Cores purpose. One advantage is that teachers, as professionals, are to have more options and freedom concerning how they will meet the Florida Standards. I will strongly support their right to decide how to meet these standards. Because there has been a proliferation of charter schools in Sarasota County, I shall be reluctant to support additional charter schools even though the State Board of Education has the nal authority. In one year (2013-2014), there was a $10 million increase in money for charter schools. Approximately $50 million is taken from the school operating budget to pay for the 12 charter schools that we currently have. There are seven potential charter schools in the ofng. Charter schools are great, but I am not convinced the public can afford more than the 12 we already have. I fear that we run the risk of cannibalizing our school system. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? Based on my educational background and experiences, I believe that I am qualied to serve on the Sarasota School Board. I have a doctorate in reading and language arts, and experience as a public school teacher, as a professor of education and as a school board member. Additionally, I served on a county legislature and on a housing authority board. Currently, I am serving as a board member and as a tutor for the Sarasota Literacy Council. While I work well with others, I have demonstrated to my colleagues and fellow board members that I am a voice, not an echo. I have no problems in stating my opinions and respectfully disagreeing. Every public board has a duciary responsibility to taxpayers, and I am committed to spending every tax dollar as though it were my own. Because I believe that school boards should be nonpartisan, that money corrupts and a lot of money corrupts a lot, I am not accepting any campaign contributions from individuals, groups or organizations. Another issue that may set me apart is my call for a moratorium on additional charter schools. Charter schools take over $50 million a year from the Sarasota operating budget. As a product of Catholic schools, I fully under stand the value and attraction of private and charter schools, but we must not cannibalize our public schools. How many charter schools are enough? Finally, we must always keep our eye on what is most important classroom instruction.Paul SchaferAge: 71 Where do you reside/How long have you lived in the area: Sarasota, for fiveyears.

Page 18 Friday, August 15, 2014 SARASOTA COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD DISTRICT 4Why are you running for re-election? I ran for this ofce in 2006 to bring stability and leadership to the School Board and district. I believe I have done that. The appointment of Superintendent Lori White helped to boost morale among our staff and condence in our community. We worked together through tough budget years and kept student achievement up. I would like to continue this work and be part of the team that appoints Loris replacement when she retires in three years. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? The budget will continue to be a big issue. We need to continue to provide high quality educational opportunities for our students and continue to keep strong reserve fund balances. The FCAT replacement tests and the performance pay mandates pose unique challenges. We need to support our teachers as we adopt to these new requirements. We need to continue the work to see improved student outcomes, especially in our lowestperforming students. Finding a replacement for Lori White. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? Experience and hands-on work, both in the schools and our community. My experience in the Legislature has helped me to under stand the complicated funding formula the state uses to set local school property tax rates and how they allocate funds to our schools. That and my work with the Florida School Boards Association has helped me to keep abreast of changes in educational laws. My opponent wants to turn back the more rigorous Florida State Standards that were adopted in 2010 and updated in 2014. A school board member must follow the laws passed by the Legislature. If she wants to change them, she should run for the Legislature. She also worked with a group that tried to ban a world history textbook that was criticized by political pundits from our schools and wants to make it easier for people to ban them in the future. I feel this would distract the board from our mission and bring discord to the school district.Shirley Brown, incumbentAge: 61 Where do you reside/How long have you lived in the area: Sarasota for the past 30years. Family: Married to husband Jack for 39years; one son, Jack and his wife, Leah, who have two kids who attend Sarasota County schools; one daughter, Angela, a teacher who has a 4-year-old daughter. Work history: Business owner; Florida legislator, 1992-2000; School Board member, 2006-present. Community involvement: Florida School Boards Association; Tobacco Free Partnership, chair; SPARCC board, Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center; League of Women Voters; Community Alliance; Church of the Palms after-school tutoring program; Sarasota Tiger Bay Club; American Cancer Society; Sierra Club. Previous governmental offices held: 1992-2000, Florida House of Representatives; 1991-1992, State Coordinating Council for Early Childhood Services; 1993-1996, Florida Commission on Tourism; 1993-1996, Florida Film Commission; 1995-1997, Florida Task Force on Juvenile Sex Offenders and Their Victims; 2008-2010, Value Adjustment Board. BROWN Why did you decide to run for this seat? I am running to represent parents, teachers and our community who have serious concerns over the Florida Standards and the new assessment testing. Four years ago, our School Board gave up district control over curriculum by applying for Race to the Top grants. At that point, course materials began to be adopted that were aligned to standards that had not, and would not, be determined until later, well before Florida Standards were signed into law. This is federal overreach into states and local rights. The standards have not been proven to raise student achievement nor proven to effectively evaluate teachers. Before going ahead with this experiment, where was due diligence to properly vet these new standards and materials? Where was the transparency and public debate? Publishers are pushing course materials aligned to the new standards. A D.C. corporation is administering our tests. Course materials and tests are big business. High-stakes testing measuring student performance is tied to district funding and teacher pay. Florida Standards are 99 percent Common Core standards. Restoring local control over our childrens curriculum, as guaranteed by Floridas Constitution, is what needs to be done. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? Control of our curriculum and course materials. I will work to restore control of our curriculum as guaranteed by Floridas Constitution and Florida law. We must resist adopting course materials simply because they are aligned to state standards and tests. Parental review of course materials. As of July, Florida law provides that a district school board must have instructional materials policies that allow a parent to object to his or her childs instructional materials, with a description of the process to handle objections and provide for resolution; allow a parent to contest the district school boards adoption of instructional materials, with requirements to notice and hold the hearing on the challenge; and notify a parent of the ability to access his or her childs instructional materials online. It will be my priority to develop a process for parental review. Eliminate highstakes testing: Relying on test scores to sanction or reward teachers actually hurts education. Teaching to the test is not education, it is training. It teaches what to think, not how to think. Its not that we dont need to use assessments, but it should be targeted at the classroom level. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? I am comfortable with nancials because of my training as a Series 7 registered representative. My administrative skills come from my experience working for ambassadors and CEOs. I participated with coalitions in recent state public hearings where efforts have led to modications to the new Florida Standards. I successfully petitioned legislators to address student data mining and pass SB 864 into law. This law recognizes districts have curriculum control and directs school boards to have a process in place for parental input over course materials. I recognize Florida Standards and new assessment testing are law. Standards are only as good as those who write them, and these standards were not adequately validated. The two eminent educators on the validation committee refused to sign off on the standards. For now, our district must work to set our own curriculum that truly educates students and exceeds state standards. My rst priority will always be the education, well-being, individuality, safety and privacy of all students in Sarasota.Helen WolffAge: 55 Where do you reside/How long have you lived in the area: I have lived in Sarasota for 25years.

Friday, August 15, 2014 Page 19 SARASOTA COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD DISTRICT 5Why are you running for re-election? To be the best advocate I can be for our school district. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? My leadership is needed as we move toward a new superintendent in three years and work through the new tests, assessments and teacher evaluations. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? My opponent is a singleissue candidate who did not vote in the referendum and has very limited knowledge of how our school system works nancially. I have worked tirelessly to pass referendums, and lobbied the Legislature for additional money to put a technical school in North Port. The four pillars of my campaign are student achievement, student success, nancial stability and community involvement. Visit my website, www. Goodwin4school board.com, for more information.Jane Goodwin, incumbentAge: 68 Where do you reside/How long have you lived in the area: I have been a Venice resident for 16years. Family: One daughter; two grandchildren. Education: West Rome High School, Rome, Ga.; bachelor of arts in business adminis tration and business education, University of Georgia. Work history: High school teacher; director of marketing and community relations for the YMCA of Sarasota; executive vice president of the Sarasota Home Builders Associ ation; marketing representative for IBM; regional sales manager, Silent Knight Corp. Community involvement: I worked as a volunteer for 15years, including mentoring students one-on-one. Other involvement includes work with Any Given Child, Community Youth Development, Citizens for Better Schools, JOY Inc. and Samaritan Counseling Services. Previous governmental offices held: I have served since 2010 on the School Board and have been the chair for the past twoyears. GOODWIN Why did you decide to run for this seat? My biggest concern has been Common Core. The primary motivating factor for getting into the race was (School Board Chairwoman) Jane Goodwins response to my entry in the eld. She said that Common Core was already implemented and that train had already left the station, and they were moving on to other things. That did it for me. Both the school boards and the state accepted the money offered through the stimulus package of 2009 with the condition of accepting and implementing Common Core before they even knew what Common Core was. It was clear from Ms. Goodwins response that the School Board had no intention of doing anything other than accepting what was coming. The lack of communication and information being made public about Common Core is appalling. You keep hear ing about Common Core standards as if that was all Common Core was. To anyone who has looked even casually at Common Core, you realize that, as designed, it is a package of standards, curriculum, testing and data mining. The incumbents brag about having made 97 changes to Common Core standards. That says two things one, they know it can be changed, and two, 45 changes (97 if you include adding calculus to the standards) out of 974 standards is a piddling amount. This past legislative session, Florida passed laws directed at limiting the cur riculum control and data mining aspects of Common Core. The testing aspect is still up in the air. You need a school board that will be engaged in these issues rather than ignore them, and a board that will fully inform the citizens they are supposed to represent. What do you hope to accomplish/what are the big issues you see need tackling? What I hope to accomplish is to better represent the citizens while on the board and represent the school to the citizens. That means making sure the citizens concerns are heard, respected and responded to in a responsible way and that the citizens better understand the challenges that face the schools. The MGT study that was done a few years back still has some recommendations that need to be followed up on and implemented. Two issues that I might address rst would be supporting differ entiated instruction techniques and providing greater public clarity on budgeting issues and very transparent accountability on the use of our tax dollars. The big issues are to move Sarasota schools up the scale of rankings to number one from the places further down the scale that it has held the past few years, and to select a new superintendent upon Lori Whites upcoming retirement in 2017 with a smooth transition. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? It seems that I have a better grasp of the issues and pressures being foisted upon our schools by outside forces. I am also less inclined to just accept what comes without fully understanding the issues and without full disclosure to and generous input from the public. Fortunately, several of our locally elected ofcials currently serving us in Tallahassee, and both candidates now running for state ofce in our area, see the dangers of Common Core and their past votes and current campaign promises show a desire to help limit the damage headed our way from this four-fold catastrophe. We need local School Board members and state legislators who are on the same page.Randy McLendonAge: 60 Where do you reside/How long have you lived in the area: Englewood; moved here from Georgia in 1998.

Page 20 Friday, August 15, 2014 SARASOTA CHARTER REVIEW BOARD DISTRICT 1 SARASOTA CHARTER REVIEW BOARD DISTRICT 5Buchard is Democratic candidate Although Emily Chalker Lane will appear on the Democratic primary ballot, she has elected to drop out of the race for Sarasota Charter Review Board District 1. That means Democrat Valerie Buchand will face the Republican primary winner in November. Why did you decide to run for this seat? I am running for the Charter Review Board to serve the citizens of Sarasota County. My two kids attended Riverview High School and my stepdaughter attended Booker High School in Sarasota. Serving on the CRB is a way to return some of the time and effort that my children received from the schools. It would be a great honor to serve the citizens of Sarasota County on the Charter Review Board. What makes you more qualified for the post than your opponents? Thanks to my service in the U.S. Navy for 26 years in both active and reserve units, I have seen a lot of local governments and their actions. I was stationed in Philadelphia, Pa., Norfolk, Va., San Diego, Calif., and Mayport, Fla. Ive also lived in Sarasota County since 1999 and grew up in Pittsburgh, Pa. Throughout my adult life, Ive analyzed how governments work through decision making and charter formation. I fully appreciate the election of Charter Review Board members embodied in the Sarasota County Charter. It allows the citizens of Sarasota County to consider deliberately, carefully and completely any amendments proposed by individuals or groups in the county.Paul Cajka Sr., Republican Why did you decide to run for this seat? Growing up in a family with gener ations of military service, I developed early on a great reverence for this nation and the principles embodied in our constitution. To me, the constitution is the bedrock upon which the patriots laid the foundations of these United States. I feel this document is not to be treated trivially or as outdated. Here in Sarasota, because of home rule, we have a charter the constitution for our county, if you will. As I see it, the charter establishes for the county government the powers it may wield and the limits it must operate within. The charter is the framework within which our elected officials carry out their duties as public servants. The Charter Review Board is charged with reviewing and recommending changes to the County Charter the structure of our local government. This is a task that requires deliberation and thoughtful analysis, not political activism. No influence of party affiliation should play a part in the operation or deliberation of the CRB. I am not a politician by trade and I have only run for public office once before. I have no agenda other than to ensure our government here in Sarasota can run with efficiency, fiscal responsibility, and respect for the rights and desires of the voters. I have done this over the past three years in office and will continue to do so. What makes you more qualified for the post than your opponents? Before seeking office, I developed an appreciation for and strived to fully under stand the complexity of the consideration process for proposed amendments to the charter by actively attending board meetings. Actually being at meetings was key to gaining the understanding that led me to be an effective representative for my district and productive board member. Not everyone seeking to be on the board has made this kind of effort. In three years of service on the Charter Review Board, I have served on special committees, chaired committees, served as vice chair and been elected the current chairman. Though I was not the senior member, I was honored my fellow board members would entrust me with the responsibility of ensuring the efficient function of our board. During my tenure Ive worked to ensure the openness and independence of the board. Knowing the input of the public is the main driver of the workings of the board, I continue to fight to ensure their access is not curtailed. All sides of an issue should have a fair hearing before any decision on a proposal is made. The combination of familiarity with the board prior to office as well as the numer ous positions I have held while serving on it give me a wealth of experience that makes me uniquely qualified as a candidate. My dedication to ensuring our Sarasota County government can run efficiently, with fiscal responsibility and respect for the rights and desires of voters, is what makes me the right candidate.Steve Fields, RepublicanWhy did you decide to run for this seat? I considered running for the open Charter Review Board seat in my district in 2012 until I learned a gentleman I respect a lot, John Fellin, was interested in the position. John had demonstrated the kind of thoughtful approach I think the CRB job requires during his years on the Planning Commission and I chose to support him in that election. With a District 5 seat open again in 2014, I decided to offer myself as candidate. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? I have a long history of volunteer service to Sarasota County, having served on advisory committees for more than a decade, providing advice on a wide range of projects from recreation amenities to central utilities and land-use decisions to highway landscaping. I received an incredible opportunity to experience the innerworkings of local government. I feel the knowledge gained from those and other life experiences gives me the advantage of a community-wide perspective needed for this job.Bruce Dillon, RepublicanEditors note: Slider provided an answer to only this question. Why did you decide to run for this seat? I ran for Charter Review Board because we are still facing many of the same issues we had two years ago when I ran for Sarasota County commissioner. I have three main ideas to get the county back on track and restore condence in our elected ofcials: I would like to work on the formation of an independent ethics commission to help resolve the ethics issues that have plagued our county. The question of term limits for consti tutional ofcers needs to be reopened. There is currently a loophole that allows a Charter Review candidate to accept a campaign contribution amount greater than the $200 candidates for other elected positions are allowed to accept. Addressing these three issues together would be the rst steps in restoring public condence and encourage more individuals to participate in public service. I am encouraged by the number of candidates who have stepped forward to make a difference this election cycle. No longer should we have unopposed candidates or have well-qualied individuals discour aged from participating in public service.Brian Slider, Republican ELECTIONZt 'SEE NEWS HAPPENING?CALLUSCharlotte DeSoto North Port Englewood941.206.1000 663.494.7600 941.429.3000 94141.3000

Friday, August 15, 2014 Page 21 SARASOTA HOSPITAL BOARD CENTRAL SEAT 2 SARASOTA HOSPITAL BOARD NORTHERN SEAT 1Why are you running for re-election? As the incumbent, I have demonstrated the value my experience can add to the boards deliberation. I have over 20 years of hospital board experience in New York, including over 10 years chairing the board quality committee. As a result of my Human Resources and pension plan duciary experience, I have been appointed treasurer and Investment Committee chairperson. With my engineering and utility experience, I have been part of the design and construction team selection committee for several construction projects at the hospital. Finally, with my over 30 years of management and executive experience, I have been able to contribute to the two key roles of the Hospital Board: hiring, compensating and guiding the CEO; and advising on the development of the strategic plan and approving the funding for its implementation. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? I feel my experiences and the demonstrated ability to apply them to meet the needs of the board and the hospital make me the most qualied candidate. My additional experience in electronic health care records networking and benet plan administration also gives me a good insight into the changing health delivery landscape and understanding of the future options for the hospital.Joseph DeVirgilio Jr., Republican, incumbent Why did you decide to run for this seat? My mission is to pur sue and demand the following from the Sarasota Memorial Hospital administration and board members: truthful transparency, clarity, prudent and responsible decision-making and future accountability in all matters; respect and more respect for the taxpayers money, which continues to be used for arrogant spending and expansion; and full compliance with state of Florida Sunshine laws. Our taxes paid to SMH are an average of $10 million per year from 1998 to 2003 and an average of $46 million per year from 2006 to 2013. Thats an approximate 460 percent increase in dollars. Millage rates increased 290 percent from 0.3740 up to 1.0863. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? I am the only candidate who is a former Sarasota Memorial Hospital employee and whistleblower. Also, during 2014, I have been a regular attendee at most of the public board and committee meetings as a concerned citizen guest so I can better understand what they do and how they make decisions. Truth-seeking, scally conservative taxpayers should be advised that I do have some unique knowledge of SMH from an insider perspective. My goal is to pursue more cost-effective, quality care for some of our less-fortunate citizens and veterans perhaps through VA vouchers, a venture with the SMH community medical clinic (CMC) or through some faith-based joint venture, as Sarasota Jewish and Christian communities are very generous. Simple promise if elected, I will put out a monthly newsletter/blog for the taxpayers with truthful information about respect for your tax dollars and other observations.Michael Sutphin, RepublicanWhy did you decide to run for this seat? To maintain and improve the nationally ranked Sarasota Memorial Health Care System and to retain its status as a not-for-prot public institution; to deal with any nancial uncertainty that might exist in a manner that will protect the public tax dollars; to ensure that the hospital is scally responsible, conservative and a good steward of our public tax dollars; and to work toward the delivery of affordable health care to our community. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? As a current elected ofcial (on the Sarasota County Charter Review Board), I have had the privilege of serving our community over the last 16 years, with an emphasis on doing the right thing and being a champion for the people as a scal conservative. As a local health care provider, every day I witness the struggles and difcult decisions people make when it comes to their health care. It is imperative that we strive to improve our world-class health care system, while taking whatever steps we can to make it more accessible and affordable to all. I want to continue to serve my community, and I believe that my background as both a conservative elected leader and a local health care worker would benet both the hospital and our entire community. Stefan Butz, Republican Why are you running for re-election? As the incumbent and immediate past chair man, I want to continue the momentum that has been building for the past several years at Sarasota Memorial Hospital in all areas, both clinically and nancially. The recent rating by US News and World Report that puts SMH No. 1 in South Florida and No. 5 among all 265 Florida hospitals in overall patient care substantiates that the current board has overseen and guided a tremendous achievement by all our dedicated employees. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? Experience, experience, experience. The American Hospital Association states that the learning curve for a new hospital board member to become familiar with all the complex nancial details of a health care organization is over two years. I have 30 years of direct hospital board experience in notfor-prot, governmental, public health care institutions. A side note is that, with the other incumbents, we have a combined 89 years of hospital board service. Sarasota Memorial Hospital is a jewel of our community in all aspects it needs to continue on the same path that the current board has set from their experience as we all face the increasing challenges coming in health care from federal and state agencies, laws and regulations.Richard Merritt, Republican, incumbentThe Hospital Board races are Universal Primary contests.

Page 22 Friday, August 15, 2014 SARASOTA HOSPITAL BOARD NORTHERN SEAT 2 SARASOTA HOSPITAL BOARD SOUTHERN SEAT 1Why did you decide to run for this seat? When rst approached by the former CEO of Sarasota Memorial Hospital to become more involved, I was honored I had been considered. As a candidate, Im proud to say that SMH has and will continue to serve as a tremendous asset for our community. Ive been involved in the health care industry for the past 20 years, and it would be an honor to have the opportunity to give back through service on the SMH board. I am committed to SMHs mission of excellence in health care, which is why I was the rst person to sign the pledge supporting the hospital system. I support the great work of the board and hospital leadership, and hope for the opportunity to serve my community. The health care industry will be facing tremendous nancial challenges as the Affordable Care Act continues to be implemented. Today, existing Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement rates to hospitals dont cover the full cost of care. As a result of the ACA, hospital reimbursements for these programs continue to decline. The impacts for SMH will be approximately $9.4 million in 2014 and $15.6 million in 2015. SMH provides a signicant amount of charity care but will continue to face these challenges while caring for some of the 58,000 uninsured residents in Sarasota. I have a unique understanding of the challenges facing SMH as they continue to diversify services and create new offerings in an effort to reduce patient cost, which is why I am running. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? Bob Strasser, the incumbent, has done a very good job in his tenure as a board member. He has been a loyal and valuable trustee and should be commended for his work. My candidacy brings an updated and current industry base and market knowledge as a possible trustee. I am involved in the health care and hospital industry on local, Florida, Eastern Seaboard, Midwest and Southeast levels. My business background offers a signicant level of business, scal responsibility and strategic planning. This is in addition to being involved in the community in many areas. Thank you for your time and consideration of my candidacy. Jack Brill, Republican Why are you running for re-election? I have proudly served this hospital as a board member and past chairman for the past 20 years. Even though Im quite proud of our accomplishments and the current nancial condition of Sarasota Memorial Hospital, we must recognize that this is a critical time for the future of any medical facility. We face strong challenges in Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements and are in the process of appointing a new chief executive ofcer. Additionally, external forces are working to change our hospital, possibly privatizing it. An experienced board is critical in helping to successfully manage these challenges. I cannot envision a time when experience at the board level is more essential than today. The current Board of Directors collectively represents 66 years of hospital governance experience, and the results reect that fact. We need to keep our current board intact. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? I have served 20 years on this Hospital Board and have 10 years experience on a previous board in Illinois. I have experience in hospital board management that my opponent simply does not have. Sarasota Memorial is today in the best nancial condition it has seen in years. It has won more awards and recognitions than most Florida hospitals, and is ranked among the top hospitals in the nation. While I cannot singly take credit for that success, I am proud to have played a key role. The current board, with a very deep bench of experience, along with top-tier management staff and an outstanding workforce, have worked in unison to achieve these goals. There are forces within the state but outside our community that wish to privatize SMH and make it a for-prot operation. This will deprive many in our county of essential medical care, as well as put unprotable areas, such as maternal and birthing services, at risk. We cannot let that happen. I have a strong record of both supporting and keeping Sarasota Memorial Hospital as Sarasotas County Hospital. My opponent will tell you he has signed a pledge to do the same. I do not have to sign the pledge. I have lived it for 20 years.Bob Strasser, Republican, incumbentWhy did you decide to run for this seat? I believe if the residents of Sarasota County elect me to the Hospital Board that they will be getting a proven leader one who is not willing to just let the status quo prevail. When dealing with health care, from our newborns to our seniors, it is important to have policymakers in place who are willing to do everything in their power to make sure quality health care is the utmost concern. I have a proven history of being a corroborator and a collaborator and will compromise on an issue if it means doing the greatest good for the greatest num ber. Sarasota Memorial Hospital is a countywide hospital and I feel that the southern part of our county is not getting the services it deserves for the taxes it pays. Electing me would denitely bring the discussion to the table on when and how we will have a full-service hospital in South County. The residents of South County have been paying the same in taxes as North County but do not have near the accessibility to all the services the hospital has to offer northern residents. For the reasons above and because I have never been one to sit on the sidelines when an issue needs to be tackled, I decided to run for the Hospital Board seat. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? More qualied? Thats kind of an awkward question. Im running against an incumbent and that already gives him the institutional knowledge for this position. I know and respect Mr. Darryl Henry. Having said that, just because my opponent is already at the post for this Hospital Board seat doesnt mean that my qualications dont match or exceed his. Every board Ive been on, whether I was elected or appointed, I was eventually given a leadership role. This speaks volumes for my ability to lead. Im able to bring unity to a board by respecting and including all members. I encourage participation and realize the constituents that placed me in that position are an integral part of my decision-making process. Ive been a public servant in health care my entire adult life. Im a captain/ paramedic with Pasco Fire Rescue. Im an instructor for the American Heart Association. My continuing education in health care has been ongoing since I rst became a reghter 16 years ago. I know how important quality patient care is. I also realize health care is vital to a thriving community. The biggest and most important qualication that I could offer is my willingness to listen and be prepared for every issue that will be before me. I am an excellent communicator; in my four years as an elected commissioner in the city of North Port I answered every phone call and email from my constituents. I plan on bringing that same passion and dedication to Sarasota Memorial Hospital.David Garofalo, RepublicanWhy are you running for re-election? Re-election to the Hospital Board would allow me to continue my efforts to expand the services offered to all residents of our county. During the past four years, we have added four urgent-care centers in South, North and East County, but that is only a start. Specically, North Port needs a hospital, and other areas of the county, like Englewood and Siesta Key, that are currently underserved need facilities. Sarasota Memorial Hospital is beginning a project to upgrade our current rehabilitation services. I want to see that project through to its nish. Additionally, I want to help with the renovation of existing facilities so every patient gets the best experience possible. I have a lifelong inter est in health care and medical issues, and I took post-graduate, health-related classes at State College of Florida specically to give me the background to do the work required. During my rst term, I have become more energized by the tasks the board performs. I have a deep commitment to SMH and in particular to the wonderful staff. I want to serve my fellow citizens and represent them to the best of my ability. More importantly, I believe in nishing what I start. I would like the opportunity to complete the work I started in my rst four years. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? My commitment to Sarasota Memorial Hospital and the entire health care system is undisputed. I have a nearly perfect attendance record and have participated in numerous optional activities to benet the hospital and citizens of Sarasota County. I am retired; therefore, I can devote all my time to SMH. There are seven to 10 committee meetings a month, a public meeting and a host of other activities. I attend all the meetings and have also attended town hall sessions at all Sarasota Memorial Health Care System locations, recognition and awards ceremonies, and doctors and nurses days, to name only a few. My career prior to retirement included administrative and managerial experiences as well as nancial responsibilities that uniquely prepare me for the seat on the board, particularly the budget and audit portion of my responsibilities. In heading the Joint Warrior Interoperability program for the U.S. Defense Department, I worked with representatives from dozens of nations and supervised many individual programs. I was the direct supervisor of more than 150 military personnel, civilians and contractors, and administered an annual budget of over $43 million. After retiring, I was CEO of my own company, so I am no stranger to making tough decisions or dealing with complex personnel issues. I have learned so much in the past four years about the administration of our hospital. I have the experience and the knowledge to continue the SMH tradition of excellence. I promise you honesty, integrity and dedication.Darryl Henry, Republican, incumbent ELECTIONI 4t

Friday, August 15, 2014 Page 23 SARASOTA HOSPITAL BOARD SOUTHERN SEAT 2 12TH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT JUDGEWhy are you running for re-election? I am one of the two Sarasota Hospital Board members representing South County. As the incumbent, I am running to continue my service to the community and Sarasota Memorial Hospital. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? I have been on the Hospital Board for 12 years, and during that time the board and the Sarasota Memorial Hospital have made tremendous strides in the improving delivery of health care to the community. I attended the joint meeting with city commissioners when SMH committed to have a presence in North Port and watched as the North Port Emergency Room was built, opened and continues to serve the community. I have and continue to support the people of South County with my years of experience on the board. I have chaired several committees during my tenure and have served as chairman of the board. I am presently rst vice chair and am very eager to continue my service to all of the people in the hospital district.Greg Carter, Republican, incumbent Why did you decide to run for this seat? Back in March, I attended some board meetings and then decided to apply for a committee position. I did not hear back on any selection; I understand there were over 60 applicants. I decided to run for a Hospital Board seat to hasten the process. The current board, however wonderful, is lacking in a few areas. It is made up of mostly individuals with business backgrounds, and it is short on medically experienced people, such as myself. What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponent? I have been a registered nurse for over 35 years, and have spent the majority of those years working in the operating room and a good bit in perioperative services. I am semiretired and am working in pre-op testing at the current time. I have much understanding regarding the needs of patients to have quality care and safety. If elected I am prepared to use my knowledge and passion for the betterment of patient care and safety. I have identied a priority issue, and that is the immediate need for improving the rating for the hospitalacquired conditions that jeopardize patients recovery and well-being, as well as the incurred cost into the thousands for extended care and rehabilitation of those complications. Now with the rating system, Medicare can penalize hospitals with poor scores by withholding a certain percentage in reimbursements. This will adversely impact the bottom line, and possibly the excellent reputation Sarasota Memorial Hospital has earned.Lydia Tower, Republican The race for circuit judge for the 12th Judicial Circuit (Group 17) is nonpartisan. Why did you decide to run for circuit judge? Becoming a judge has been a lifelong career goal. I have a deep-rooted desire to serve my community and my country, and have been preparing for this role my entire life. When I was very young my dad took me to a Notre Dame football game. That was it. I knew in my heart I wanted to play football one day for the Irish. Sheer will and determination enabled me to make the football team at Notre Dame, even though I was the smallest player on the team. That was my dream then, and this is my dream now. For me, being a judge would be the culmination of my career as a lawyer after a lifetime of practice, education and learning. I have a desire to take my career to the next level. The same desire that enabled me to walk onto that football eld at Notre Dame has led me on my path to the courtroom. I am comfortable in who I am and what I have learned along the way from well-known coaches to great military leaders. I know I will bring a wealth of experience to the bench along with a desire to be the best judge I can possibly be. What makes you the most qualied for the seat? My education and training has been lengthy, extensive and diverse, and my life-experience invaluable. I have an advanced legal degree, a masters of law in taxation from the New York University School of Law. With the aid of an Air Force ROTC scholarship, I attended the University of Notre Dame, where I earned my undergraduate degree in accounting and graduated with honors. I also graduated with honors in the top 4 percent of my law school class. I am a colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserve and have been assigned to the Air Force Judge Advocate Generals Corps during my entire 27-year military career. I have tried hundreds of jury trials during my career, including more than 15 homicide trials including death penalty cases. In the military, I tried an extremely high visibility case involving the theft of highly classied computers from U.S. Central Command. As a lawyer I do my utmost to be prepared, thorough, straightforward in the presentation of the facts, and clear and concise in the application of the law. As a prosecutor you see the impact of crime on the victims it harms. In homicide cases you see how devastating and life-altering the crime has been for the loved ones left behind. In a recent rst-degree murder case, the decedents entire family lled the courtroom every day of a weeklong trial. They conducted themselves above reproach despite the egregious circumstances. The case had its difculties, as many do, but I worked to ensure that I was thoroughly and utterly prepared to present the facts of the case, to ask the tough questions, to intensely listen to responses, be respectful to opposing counsel, the presiding judge, and courtroom personnel, and present the facts as clearly as possible to the jury. I will bring knowledge and understanding, decisiveness, a willingness to listen and learn, honor, compassion and a deep-rooted desire to serve on the bench. Whats the most important factor for voters to weigh when it comes to a judges seat? As an Air Force Reserve ofcer, I live by three core values: integrity rst, service before self, and excellence in all that we do. The core values are much more than minimum standards. They remind us what it takes to get the mission done. They inspire us to do our very best at all times. They are the common bond among all comrades in arms. I will apply all that I have learned from great leaders, my education and my life experiences and be the best judge I can possibly be. As a prosecutor, my ethical directive has been always to seek justice. It was my job to seek to punish the guilty and protect the innocent, including victims of crime as well as people falsely accused of committing crimes. I have also learned the importance of being thoroughly prepared, patient, being a good listener, being open to what is presented and possessing an even temperament. As a judge, I would bring my valuable courtroom experience, a sense of fairness and my strong work ethic to the bench. I will strive to make our community a better place to live, work and raise a family.Art JackmanAge: 53 Where do you reside/How long have you lived in the area: Sarasota area resident for more than 20years. Family: Single. Education: New York University School of Law, Albany Law School of Union University, University of Notre Dame. Work history: Trial attorney, Felony Division chief, prosecutor with the State Attor neys Office since 1996; colonel, U.S.Air Force Reserve, Judge Advocate Generals Corps, 27years; mobilized and served on extended active duty after9/11. Community involvement: President of Epilepsy Services of Southwest Florida, Former Ringling Redskins youth football coach, the John M. Scheb American Inn of Court. JACKMANWhy did you decide to run for circuit judge? Becoming a judge has been a lifelong goal but no one knows how well-suited they are to the actual duties of the position until they start the job. My work as a magistrate conrmed for me that I was well-suited for the position. Further, I received a rating of 4.24 out of 5 in Sarasota County Bar Associations 2013 judicial poll for my legal knowledge, ethics, courtesy to litigants and attorneys, and my courtroom administration. With my near decade of experience on the bench and the upcoming retirement of one of our Manatee County judges, running for this seat was the perfect opportunity for me. What makes you the most qualied for the seat? My wide range of experiences in both civil and criminal law, my experience as a business owner and my experience as a magistrate are all distinguishing factors that make me the most qualied candidate. I began my career in public service as a prosecutor, working in several divisions in both Manatee and Sarasota counties for almost seven years, including a special division handling child abuse cases. From 1991 until 2004, I maintained a people-centered law practice, representing individuals in almost every division of county and circuit court. During my 20 years of law practice I tried hundreds of civil and criminal trials and just as important I learned Susan MaulucciAge: 56 Where do you reside/How long have you lived in the area: Ive lived in the Sarasota-Manatee area for 30years. After all of our children left home my husband Ron and I moved from Sarasota to Ellenton with our dog Chouchie. Family:Between my husband and I we have four grown children and four grandchildren. Education:I received my bachelor and law degrees from the University of Florida, a bachelor of arts degree in sociology in 1979 and a juris doctor degree in 1982. Work history: 1984-1991, I served as a prosecutor in Sarasota and Manatee counties assigned to several divisions including an appointment as a Juvenile Division chief; 1991-2004, I managed a law and mediation practice in Sarasota; 20042014 I was appointed to serve as a general magistrate and assigned to a family division in Manatee County. Community involvement: I have been involved in the community for more than 25years, volun teering with Big Brothers Big Sisters, Girl Scouts, my childrens schools, Manasota Legal Aid and other organizations. In 2007, when confronted with the problems faced by youth aging out of foster care, I created Next Step, a program that offers mentoring, tutoring, clothing, furniture and other support for dependent teens. Through my efforts and with the assistance of others, a clothes closet was opened on the fifth floor of the Manatee County Judicial Center in 2009 that remains open today and offers free clothing, shoes and accessories to teens who are part of the dependency court system. Since 2008 I have served on the board of the Childrens Guardian Fund, the charity that supports our local guardian ad litem program, and am a member of The Florida Bar Legal Needs of Children Committee.
