In the roughly eight months since she bought her $360 Samsung Galaxy tablet at Best Buy in Port Charlotte, Mary Nor man has had it in for repairs three times for the same reason: The unit wont turn back on or recharge. All told, the tablets been out for repair almost two months. Twice, she sent it back to Samsung. She asked customer relations to have the tablet replaced, but says Samsung reps told her they couldnt do it. After the third time, she was allowed to go to Best Buy, where the battery was replaced. But the tablet stopped working again last week. I am tired of sending it back, only to have it stop working again, the 65-year-old Port Charlotte resident wrote me, asking for my help. Samsungs one-year warranty infor mation gives it many choices: It can repair the tablet, replace it with either a reconditioned or a new unit, or refund the purchase price. Knowing that, I asked Mary if she wanted her money back, but she just wanted a tablet that worked. So, armed with all of her detailed documentation, I contacted Samsung to see if it would agree to replace Marys tablet under her unique circumstances. And it did. Product quality and customer satisfaction are top priorities for Samsung, and we will replace Ms. Normans tablet, Samsung wrote me. Samsung responds to and investigates all consumer inquiries, and we do our best to resolve issues to our customers satisfaction. Mary told me shes been offered a brand-new upgraded model. However, if I hadnt been involved, Mary shouldnt have given up. A warranty is a voluntary promise made by a business owner or product manufacturer to stand by its product, and is included in the price. Most have limitations, including the term, and are not transferable. When made in writing for consumer goods not services normally used for personal or family purposes, companies must comply with certain federal warranty protection laws. These protections include requiring warranties to be made available including online before you buy, and arranging informal and inexpensive procedures for resolving disputes. For more information, search warranties at Additionally, many credit cards extend the manufacturers written warranty, usually for up to one year, if charging the purchase on their cards. Charging also comes with rights to dispute a purchase up to a year, if theres a problem with the product. In Florida, like most states, even without a written warranty, a warranty of merchantability is implied, promising a product should do what it's supposed to do. When reading warranty information, understand when coverage can be denied. Samsung conditions its limited warranty on proper use. That means, under its terms, exposing the tablet to some moisture or sand at the beach, touching a metallic object like a pen to the touchscreen, or using an unapproved battery charger absolves Samsung from honoring its warranty. Finally, without proof of purchase, you dont even have warranty protection. So remember to staple the sales receipt, along with the UPC bar code on the package, onto the warranty information. Mary photocopies receipts in case they fade. David Morris is the Suns consumer advocate and a Florida Society of News Editors award-winning columnist.

By a unanimous vote, current board president K. Stephen Carter was tabbed to lead the organization as executive director. In addition, trustee Wayne Goff was given a one-year term as board president. The change in leadership will take effect Monday. It really was a tough decision, search committee chairman Ray Rose said of the choice for executive director. We had a group of outstanding candidates. It was really, really close. The six-person search committee received 15 applications, then narrowed the list down to eight applicants, who were interviewed last week. Eventually, one name was recommended to the executive committee on Monday, with the full board of trustees approving the selection Thursday. Rose said Carter was chosen for his decade of service to the center, strong manage ment experience and extensive contacts in the community. His charge is to re-establish the Cultural Centers role in the community, he said.

Ocer Reannon Juergensen, pictured here, said the animals were housed in unsuitable living conditions at a property o Little Farm Road, south of Punta Gorda.Someone once wrote that when the time comes for you to leave this Earth, if it doesnt become a lesser place with your absence, then you have wasted your life. Its quite conceivable that Charlotte County is a lesser place these days without Ed Safron. Elwood P. Ed Safron of Punta Gorda passed away Aug. 22 at the age of 86, leaving behind an arguably unmatched legacy and life of service of more than 60 years in Charlotte.Safrons legacy, life rememberedBy BILL JONESSUN CORRESPONDENTFORT MYERS Lee County Public Schools made history Wednesday night when its board voted to become the rst school district in the state to opt out of all statewide standardized tests. The motion passed 3-2, with the support of board members Don Armstrong, Tom Scott and Mary Fischer. The decision was received with overwhelming cheers and applause in the packed auditorium of opt-out supporters who donned red in an act of solidarity. Sometimes it takes an act of civil disobedience to move forward, Armstrong said. We cannot allow the fear to hold us back. Fischer, who initially was reluctant to support the vote, served as the tie-breaker. No matter what else is going on, teachers go on and they teach the students, she said. If this is our window of opportunity, I hope we make the best of it. While the news was met with jubilation, superintendent Nancy Graham said she was deeply concerned about the boards decision. This will hurt children. There is no way around it, Graham Lee schools nix state-mandated testsBy EMILY ATTEBERRYFORT MYERS NEWS-PRESSSAFRON | 12READER ADVOCATE David MORRISCOLUMNISTSOUTH OF PUNTA GORDA When Charlotte County Animal Control Ofcer Reannon Juergensen visited a property off Little Farm Road earlier this month, she found horses and other animals that were sick, starving and underweight. The overall housing of the animals wasnt good, she said. The pasture if you could call it that was just the size of a normal fenced-in yard. Ofcers were particularly concerned about two ponies, three donkeys and four horses. There reportedly was insufcient feed or grass for them to eat. Some of the animals had rotten teeth, were anemic or were suffering from fungal conditions of the skin, Juergensen said. After seizing the animals, Animal Control authorities on Monday went before County Judge John Burns at the Charlotte County Justice Center in Punta Gorda and petitioned for custody of the nine suffering animals, court documents show. Burns ruled in favor of Animal Control. After we got custody, one family offered to adopt all of them, Animal Control division manager Brian Jones said. Its a much better situation. The new owners have requested privacy due to the circumstances of the case.Farm animals find greener pasturesBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERANIMALS | 12 SAFRON CARTER GOFFTESTS | 12Charlotte SunAND WEEKLY HERALDCLASSIFIED: Comics 11-14 | Dear Abby 14 | TV Listings 15 THE SUN: Obituaries 5 | Viewpoint 6 | Opinion 7 | Crosswords 8 | Police Beat 8-9 VOL. 122 NO. 241An Edition of the SunAMERICAS BEST COMMUNITY DAILYFRIDAY AUGUST 29, $1.00 40 percent chance of rain94 76 High Low Look inside for valuable couponsThis years savings to date ...S UN COUPON VALUE METER CHARLIE SAYS ...Are you ready for some football?INDEX | 705252000258 Daily Edition $1.00 $85,359 INSIDE TODAY!Dont miss the Suns annual 48-page standalone football preview section covering preps, pros and college.

Call 941-624-0110 | COMMUNITY CALENDARROTONDA WEST If you like lots of pizza and ice cream, and want to eat dinner with the President and First Lady once a year, you could be the governor of Florida, Gov. Rick Scott told fth-grade science students Thursday at Vineland Elementary School. Ive been to Japan, Canada, England, Spain, Paris, Chile, Panama, Israel and Columbia representing Florida, the governor said. Now, how many of you want to be the governor? All hands shot up. Seeing all of the excitement, Scott said, You have to wait a few years from now, but you can become the governor all of you can. By the way, I like science and math. While most children were surprised to see the governor, two special students, Hunter Andres, 8, and Emmalee Louk, 9, were handpicked to lead him, First Lady Ann Scott and Florida Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart on a school tour. I know who the governor is hes the one who makes the rules for Florida, said Hunter, who admitted to being nervous and excited about meeting Scott. I was picked to give the tour because I am a great role model. Im in the Lighthouse Team and the Green Team. Im always busy keeping Vineland beautiful. Emmalee agreed, she knew the governor was important. He lives in Tallahassee, the state capital, the fourth-grader said. I was picked because Ive been a speaker at the symposium for three years at the school. Im used to talking in front of groups. School principal Laura Blunier welcomed Charlotte County School Board members, superintendent Doug Whittaker and state Rep. Ken Roberson, R-Port Charlotte, all before meeting the governors motorcade. Scott had been to a St. Augustine school earlier in the day, accompanying Stewart on her back-to-school tour. Initially, only Stewart and Florida Teacher of the Year Christie Bassett were coming to the school, but the Scotts wanted to join them. Ive been to a lot of schools, Scott said, adding hed been to Charlotte County schools 15 months ago, and once prior. He didnt have any press for his rst visit. He secretly went to a classroom of a technology teacher who earned statewide recognition to thank her for her dedication to students. Ann had read to students at a county school in Deep Creek in the past two years as well. The governor came to Vineland Elementary School because we have maintained an A school rating for 13 consecutive years, said Blunier, who has been the principal for eight years, but began her career as a rst-grade teacher in 1991. Our science scores are (the) highest in the district. Our teachers focus on building leadership skills in students. We have excellent support from the community. Our parents pitch in all the time. The Scotts immediately were entertained by a group of about 15 students led by longtime teacher and North Port resident Alice White. They sang a leadership song, called Be a Leader Every Day. The couple posed for pictures with the group. They were led through the school with an excited Emmalee skipping at times. The small group of dignitaries passed Leadership Lane, and down the hall to a fthgrade science class, where the students showed what they do. Students at Vineland have an hour of science and math, and two hours of language arts each day. They use vocabulary words as part of their science lessons. They have portfolios that track their progress and what they must improve on. The group left the science class and met a group of well-behaved rst-graders who all could recite the classroom rules to the governor. The group was invited to go to students desks individually and check out their work. They all had their picture taken with the governor. On their way out, the governor and his wife were given gift bags from Hunter and Emmalee. We gave them Vineland shirts and other good Vineland stuff, Emmalee said with a smile.Email: eallen@sun-herald.comGovernor visits Vineland ElementaryBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHSTAFF WRITER SUN PHOTOS BY ALISON POSNERGov.

Our Town Page 4 C The Sun /Friday, August 29, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded the Punta Gorda Airport $5.7 million for the expansion of the Bailey Terminal. At a special meeting of the Charlotte County Airport Authority Thursday, assistant airport manager Jim Parish told commissioners he received an email Thursday morning from the FAA notifying airport ofcials of the administrations decision to grant the airports full grant request, which totals roughly $6.1 million. We applied for two grants this year (for two separate projects), but they will be funded under one grant, Parish said. One grant totaling $5,721,319 will be applied toward the airport expansion, Parish said. Another grant in the amount of $474,728 will be used to purchase a new aircraft-rescue retruck, he said. The grants cover 70 percent of the total cost of each project, Parish said. So were getting everything we asked for, he said. Airport Authority commissioners voted unanimously to accept the grant, and authorized staff to sign and execute the nal documents. Under the proposed expansion, the Bailey Terminal would more than triple in size, from 16,000 to about 50,000 square feet. The project calls for increasing the number of air gates from two to four, enhancing security areas, and making room for more ticket counters and a larger passenger waiting area. The expansion will cost about $8 million, more than half of which will be paid for by the FAA, airport Executive Director Gary Quill said. The Florida Department of Transportation and the Airport Authority will split the remaining 30 percent. At Tuesdays special meeting, Airport Authority commissioners also approved about $192,000 worth of contracts with Halfacre Construction. The rst contract totaled roughly $155,900 for security upgrades at the airport; it called for adding a server, extra cameras and new technology at the gates. The second contract covers the design portion of an expanded quickturn facility in the car rental area, which includes adding cleaning stations and parking. That contract equaled $21,700. The nal contract commissioners approved totaled $14,785 for the design of a training area for the Transportation Security Administration. According to Parish, the TSA, which currently has 42 full-time staff members based at the airport, will lease back the space from the airport.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comAirport receives millions for expansionBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITER Average summer temperatures will continue this weekend, National Weather Service meteorologist Rodney Wynn predicts. Locals in Sarasota and Charlotte counties who are out and about will experience highs in the mid-90s on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Wynn said that there will be elevated chances of rain each afternoon after 2 p.m. He reported that Friday will be the worst day for rainfall, with percentages ranging from 40 to 60 percent in some areas, while citing 30 and 40 percent chances of rain for Saturday and Sunday, respectively. The rainfall is not related to Hurricane Cristobal as it travels north along the east coast of the United States, according to Wynn. Instead, rain is being produced by a high-pressure front to the east of the Florida coast, with wind ow from the east and southeast resulting in sea breeze storms and other weather collisions that can elevate rain chances for coastal areas with deceased chances farther inland. Wynn said the conditions are perfect for a typical summertime front that produces high temperatures and thunderstorms. He said the National Weather Center is tracking larger weather patterns in the Gulf of Mexico and elsewhere. The cycling storm system currently in the Gulf will not move east but will continue pushing into Texas, he reported. Meanwhile, he said the center is monitoring a couple of other areas, including one system in the Caribbean and another off the coast of Africa. Wynn anticipates that they will not affect Florida for the foreseeable future, saying that these systems are well beyond a ve-day forecast. So far as next week is concerned, Wynn said weather patterns will continue much the same. There wont be any long-term change, he said.Typical summer weather pattern continuesBy JOEL S. LANGHAMSUN CORRESPONDENT NORTH PORT A Sarasota attorney with North Port ties was disbarred by the Florida Supreme Court in July, after an investigation revealed a host of violations, including taking money for legal service he never performed, among others. Virgil L. Light, who could not be reached Thursday at phone numbers listed for his North Port home and downtown Sarasota ofce, has complaints going back to 2008, when a client retained Light to retrieve a $160,000 investment loss from Wachovia Bank. According to Supreme Court documents, the client paid Light a $5,000 retainer, but Light never delivered on the services promised, and later hit his client with a $15,000 bill for nothing. In 2011, Light led a complaint against a credit broker in the 20th Judicial Circuit, but when the court demanded that he le an amended complaint, Light reled the same complaint without any amendments. He also failed to appear for sever al hearings, during which the court dismissed the complaint and ordered Light to pay attorneys fees for the broker, which he never paid. Light solicited a client in 2008 who was due a $100,000 inheritance, and Light pursued the inher itance over the course of several years. During that time the court dismissed the clients claims to the money, but Light never informed his client and later billed him for $50,000. Court records state Lights client received a settlement check from the estate for $10,000, and Light transferred $7,500 of that sum into his own account, giving only $2,500 back to his client. In 2007, Light became embroiled in a personal vendetta against the estranged husband of his girlfriend, records show, when he alleged in court documents that the husband had sexually molested his own daughter. Filed in the 10th Judicial Circuit on behalf of his girlfriend, Lights domestic violence injunction refers to her husband as the Pedophile, and accuses him of obstructing a criminal investigation. At a May 2012 hear ing, Light admitted to attempting to humiliate the husband, and that his allegations were based on his personal beliefs. Light was ordered by the court to pay more than $22,000 in legal fees to the husbands attorneys, which he never paid. In August 2012, Light was deemed ineligible to practice law because he failed to comply with disciplinary actions levied against him, during which he took on other clients for real estate and medical malpractice issues, which he never resolved. In July 2013, Light was disbarred by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court because his license to practice law in Florida had been suspended. The Florida Bar Association repeatedly tried to get Light, who was admitted to practice in 2003, to respond to the accusations, but he never returned its inquiries. He was ofcially disbarred July 31.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comArea attorney disbarredBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSLeague needs dry dog, cat foodThe Animal Welfare League, 3519 Drance St., Port Charlotte, needs dry dog and cat food.

Mimis family would like to thank the staff of Charlotte Harbor Healthcare for their loving care and concern during her nal days. NORTH PORT City commissioners will hold a special meeting today at 1 p.m. today to determine whether they should accept Sarasota Countys offer to sell its half of Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa to the city by Sept. 2. Doing so would likely mean the natural attraction would close for a very short period of time, possibly just Labor Day, while the city ponied up the $2.75 million, plus closing costs, for full ownership of the 81-acre property. But North Port Mayor Jim Blucher said hes not sure the commission will accept the countys offer, because the county declined the citys requests for a due-diligence period during the countys meeting on Tuesday. The two governments jointly purchased the Springs, which boasts an 87-degree, mineral-rich lake popular with Eastern European bathers, for $5.5 million in 2010. County commissioners said the city has had since July 9, when they voted to sell their half of the property, to come up with the terms of the sale, and have since been dragging their feet. But even though he vot ed against the purchase, Blucher thinks its unfair to buy out the county without rst having the chance to vet the proper tys needs. We want to go through a regular closing like we always do when we buy property, or like the county does when they buy property, Blucher said Thursday. The Springs is set to close on Sunday, which marks the end of the current contract with short-term operator National and State Park Concessions of Martin County, Fla., which was tasked with operating the Springs while both boards sought a long-term solution. But the two boards came to a stalemate when trying to select a long-term operator the county favored a multimillion-dollar development proposal from Sarasota-based Jebco Ventures and Angelshot LLC, while the city preferred letting National continue on a long-term basis and the park is now set to close for a second time. County commissioners are statutorily restricted from simply extending Nationals short-term contract. Frustrated, they decided to part with their half of the Springs. County Commissioner Christine Robinson said Thursday that if the city doesnt vote to approve the contract, then it would likely mean the Springs would be shuttered for several weeks while the two sides continued to hash out the terms of the sale. North Port should not have to conduct any due-diligence process, Robinson said, because the city already knows what the property holds as co-owner. We need to wait and hear back from the city, but if they dont accept (terms of the sale), I denitely know the Springs will close, Robinson said. Meanwhile, Blucher called the Sept. 2 closing date impossible. They want us to cut a check and just go away, but we need to go through the proper channels, Blucher said. The day spa previously was shuttered to the public for nine months starting July 1, 2013, also because the two boards couldnt agree on an operator. It reopened in April for swimming only. City commissioners meet at 1 p.m. today at North Port City Hall, off Sumter Boulevard.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comNorth Port to discuss Springs purchase todayBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER ENGLEWOOD This years 58th Pioneer Days Parade Monday will be the largest seen in six years. The entire weekend on West Dearborn Street will be a celebration of whats become an Englewood tradition. More than 70 entries are expected in this years parade, Pioneer Days organizing committee chairman Erick Phelps said. As is the tradition, the parade will start at 9 a.m. at St. Raphael Catholic Church on Old Englewood Road, head south to West Dearborn Street and end at the West Dearborn-McCall Road intersection. Phelps encourages people to come early to nd a parking space and a spot along the parade route. (Pioneer Days) is the community giving back to the community, Phelps said. Cash donations are minimal compared to the more than 40 businesses, community groups and individuals who offered in-kind and other services to the events. Pioneer Days is more than a parade. The annual Captain Ricks Cardboard Boat Race starts 9 a.m. Saturday at Indian Mound Park. Organizers invite the public to the free Shipwreck Dance from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday at Pioneer Park on the 300 block of West Dearborn Street. The Lucky Seven high school jazz band and the upbeat Southern rock Kettle of Fish will perform. The dance will include food, beer, other refreshments and vendors. Sundays Pioneer Days events start at 8 a.m. with the free Michael ODonnell Memorial Kids Fish-A-Thon at the Tom Adams Bridge shing pier. From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., the public is invited to go on free tours of the Historic Hermitage House complex, which is now an artists retreat, on Manasota Key. Parents of toddlers, their families and friends are invited to the free Pioneer Days Diaper Derby at 2 p.m. at the Lemon Bay Womans Club, at the corner of Cocoanut and Maple streets. Sunday also kicks off the two-day Pioneer Days Festival at Pioneer Park. On Sunday, from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., the festival will include per formances by a variety of entertainers from the Lemon Bay Barbershop Chorus to the Archer classic rock band. On Monday, the festival opens at 11:15 a.m. and will include pie-eating and watermelon-eating competitions, entertainment and other activities for adults, families and children are planned.

Volunteers are needed for the Shipwreck Dance on Saturday night and the two Park Festivals on Sunday and Monday. These events will take place at Pioneer Park in the 300 block of W. Dearborn Street. Individuals are needed to help with setting up (tents, tables, chairs, etc.) and tearing down (the same tents, tables, chairs, etc.). Others are needed to drive a golf cart around and pick up trash. They will be asked to take bags out of cans, tie the trash bags tightly, put the filled trash bags in the back of their carts and put clean bags in the cans. While not romantic, organizers say the volunteers will help keep Pioneer Park clean. Volunteers also will be needed Monday for the set up and take down of the contests on Monday. This will mainly involve taking out tables and chairs for the watermelon and pie-eating contests and putting them away. Organizers may also need some help staffing the Ranger Information Booth. There will be an informational booklet and most of the questions should be fairly simple to answer. A wide variety of time slots need to be filled. Individuals will be asked to volunteer only for a couple of hours, not the whole day, during Pioneer Days events.

Our Town Page 6 C The Sun /Friday, August 29, 2014 CCU system poorly testedEditor: I have been having trouble reaching Charlotte County Utilities in an effort to resolve problems with their new billing procedure. Their phone system doesnt work satisfactorily. Ive recently received an urgent notice about a past-due bill. I was previously set-up for auto pay and never had any issues. I had the impression that would continue without any issues. However, I was unable to reach them by phone to verify that. I finally emailed my concern to them and they sent me documents on how to accomplish the procedure, but it lacked help options to answer questions I might have. I finally received a call from a very nice email per son who helped me through the enrollment process. I am a retired IT person with almost 40 years experience and I cant visualize this system ever being tested with the average customer enrolling using their procedures. If this new system was done by an outside contractor, I hope they dont use them again. I have to feel sorry for other customers who are experiencing the same time-consuming issues. I also feel sorry for the poor customer service people for the anguish theyre going through to help customers with this conversion.C. Edward Dahn Port CharlotteProudly waving red, white and blueEditor: Three cheers for Old Glory. It is what our patriotic forefathers fought and died for. It is the red, white and blue of freedom, our American flag. I fly it every day. Why? Because I am a World War II Navy veteran. It represents what our country should be, and could be, if our leaders in Washington obeyed the Constitution that they swore to uphold when elected. Do you fly it? If not, why not? Remember this: The United Nations has their own flag, although they are not a sovereign nation, but an organization of foreign countries. Would you like to see their flag flying everywhere instead of ours? They want to, for they want to form a one-world government under their leadership. If we let it happen, we will lose our freedom and our country. If you love America as much as I do and want it to remain the land of free and the home of the brave, then be proud, stand tall and fly the red, white and blue.Donald Bohr Port CharlotteThanks for care in hospital ICUEditor: Thank you to the doctors, nurses and all of the staff at Bayfront Hospital, Punta Gorda, and ICU West for the diligent and professional care that my son Robert Kukowinski received. I wish I could thank each one personally. They were also very kind to his mom. Thank you also to all for their prayers for Robert, and also his mom. He was transferred to a hospital in Sarasota for additional care and rehab. He has a long way to go, but I am sure the good Lord will answer all of our prayers and he will get the care he needs and one day come home to mom.Rosalie Kukowinski Punta GordaBetter use of lottery fundsEditor: In 1986, Florida approved the lottery to fund education. At that time 50 percent was to go to prizes, 38 percent to education and 12 percent for administration. The School Board not only got lottery money but also my tax dollars. In 1995, it was stated that lottery money comprised 7.5 percent ($829 million) of the states $11 billion education budget. In the 2011-12 scal year, the Florida Lottery donated $1.31 billion to the Educational Enhancement Fund. As of 2012, more than $3.9 billion in lottery-backed bonds have gone to school construction. When I look at my property tax bill, it looks as if half of my taxes are going to the Florida school system. The school board is always complaining they do not have enough money in their budget to cover expenses. I ask myself, why? Are board members being paid too much, is money being wasted on unnecessary projects or is there just too much pork? I do not have the answer, but it might be a good idea to make sure that the lottery money is being spent for what it was intended. After all, what would happen if there was not any lottery money at all for the schools? Would we just have to close all the schools and have no education for our children?Gregory Morrisette Punta GordaBehave yourself, no police problemsEditor: I found the article emblazoned, A call for peace, reform, very informative. Calls for police cultural training and reform are only a small part of the answer. The other side of the equation is the public response. Ask yourself, What would have happened in Ferguson if Mr. Brown had not tried to shoplift someone elses property; and what would have been the result if he and his friend had apologized to the officer when instructed not to block the street, and moved quickly and politely to the sidewalk? Ask yourself further, What will happen when the people stop taking an adversarial position against the police who are there to keep their streets free of thugs, and quit harboring and abetting criminals just because of the color of their skin? I have found that if I behave myself, I dont have problems with the police. You may say that the reason is because I am white, but bad white people get no free pass from the authorities. There are plenty of white folks who have found out firsthand the response they get when they are antisocial with the cops. Read the police beat. Everything you need to know about getting along with others is taught in kindergarten. Why is it that some people never learn?Jerey Alston EnglewoodLifting lamp beside golden doorEditor: Are you able to identify where you have seen the following words: Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest tost to me, I left my lamp beside the golden door! These immortal words, taken from Emma Lazarus poem, The New Colossus, are inscribed on the plaque inside the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. Although my grandfather could not see these words when he arrived from Poland, he stepped ashore at Ellis Island to begin a life of hope and happiness in his newly adopted home. Today, we are faced with the arrival of children from Central America who are seeking asylum here. Unlike my grandfather, they have left their homeland because of poverty and violence. We are compassionate people and must not turn away from these destitute children. I hope the individuals in California, who demonstrated against the arrival of these children, can see the irony in their actions. If not for their ancestors, they would not be here enjoying the lives they have in this great nation. Besides, these children are not immigrants, but refugees. It would be despicable to spend $1 trillion on two wars 8,000 miles from here, designed to kill people, and not help innocent children in our own region of this world. If you look upon me as a bleeding-heart liberal, just ask yourself what God would expect us to do.Joseph Martin Port CharlotteThanks to voters in North PortEditor: While the outcome of the election to the North Port Commission Seat 5 was not what I hoped for, I appreciate the support of my fellow citizens that voted and helped me, especially: Bob and Marianne Oines, Curry and Judy McLaughlin, Mattie Lang, Carmen Calzone and countless others too numerous to name. Thank you. To the citizens I met during the campaign, both pro and con, thank you for listening. To the 6,000 citizens who voted, thank you. To the 32,000 registered voters who didnt vote, as a commissioner stated after the last election, elections have consequences. If jobs do not materialize, taxes and foreclosures go up and policies are not to your liking, sorry. To the NPHS and college grads who must leave the area for good paying jobs, I wish you well. However, I hope I am wrong and North Port prospers. To my fellow candidates, while in some cases we were diametrically opposed in policies and visions, I respect you for getting out and running. Whether or not I ever run again, the opportunity and experience was thought-provoking and enlightening. Nevertheless, the election is not over, so look at the remaining candidates and vote in November. Thank you, North Port.Mark J.

Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., wants to champion a new emphasis on mental health care.Maybe, just maybe, the message is getting across. Thats our hope after learning of a plan U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan and congressional colleague Tim Murphy, R-Pa., are offering to reform mental health care spending in the nation. Their concern comes none too soon. As outlined in a series of stories on mental health in the Sun newspapers, the problem is at a crisis stage in the state. Here are some numbing statistics as gleaned from the Sun series over the past few months: Florida is the 49th ranked state in the country for per-capita spending on mental health care, according to the National Association of Mental Health Program Directors. About half the children in the state and two of every ve adults who live in poverty do not receive the mental health services they need. The crisis stabilization unit at Charlotte Behavioral Health Care cannot keep up with the needs of the community. It admitted 1,275 patients in 2013 315 of them children as young as 4. According to a 2009 report by the Center for Healthcare Strategies, 49 percent of Medicaid beneciaries with disabilities had a mental illness. Charlotte County had 1,058 Baker Act cases in 2012, an increase of 94 percent over the 544 cases in 2002. DeSoto County cases in 2012 jumped by nearly 67 percent over that same period. In Sarasota County, a call to the Florida Department of Health for assistance with a mental health issue normally means a three-week wait for help, according to Jim Lilly, former commander of the Courts and Corrections Services under the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce. Meanwhile, county jails are becoming warehouses for mentally ill people who cannot get treatment. Some of the problems can be traced to the closing of the G. Pierce Wood Memorial Hospital in Arcadia about a dozen years ago. The hospital, at one time, treated as many as 1,800 mentally ill patients from across the state. Buchanan and Murphy acknowledged the problem when they addressed a town hall meeting last week in Sarasota. Buchanan said the decision decades ago to close state mental hospitals and send clients to clinics was a disaster. Their bill, The Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act, or House Resolution 3717, would overhaul mental health care without spending more money, they say. Buchanan would just reorganize the $125 billion in federal mental health dollars being spent now. Some of the proposals in the bill include: Fixing the shortage of inpatient beds for the most critical patients. Provide links between primary care doctors and psychiatrists in rural areas and increase the number of psychiatrists who treat children. Support court-ordered assisted outpatient treatment a real problem right now. The bill would force states to follow up on mentally ill patients and make sure they are taking their medications. The intentions of the proposed legislation hit at the most critical needs. We believe there is much more to do. Maintaining current spending levels may not be realistic given the enormity of the problem. And casting a wide net nationwide may not do much for states like Florida where the problems are most acute and where state legislatures have buried their heads in the sand in regard to the issue. Still, we are encouraged the two congressmen recognize the need and have a willingness to do something about it. LAW9KMN flOIDA, WHO'_EAW TWO/`1 ( v ,d11 }y1 -7Tal


The Sun /Friday, August 29, 2014 C Our Town Page 7 VIEWPOINT The tax system should be simplied and work for all Americans with lower individual and corporate tax rates and fewer brackets. Thats from the Obama administrations 2009 proposals for tax reform, straight from Because our cor porate tax system is so riddled with special interest loopholes, the document goes on, our system has one of the highest statutory rates among developed countries to generate about the same amount of corporate tax revenue as our developed country partners as a share of our economy. That is still accurate except that, now that Japan has lowered its corporate tax rate, the U.S. is not among the highest but is the highest among developed countries. The rst step in establishing good public policy is identifying problems with and weaknesses in current policy. On the corporate tax, President Obama and his administration started off on the right foot. Unfortunately, they havent moved any further. Not while Democrats held supermajorities in both houses of Congress in 2009 and 2010. Not in the so-called grand bargain negotiations with House Speaker John Boehner in 2011. And not in Obamas second term. Acting apparently on the belief that he voiced on the campaign trail, that the Republicans fever would break once he was re-elected evidently he regards opposition to his policies as sickness Obama upped the ante. His previous proposals for corporate tax reform were revenue-neutral. Rates would be cut and preferences eliminated so as to maintain the same revenue stream. But his 2013 proposal was different. Corporate tax reform would have to increase revenue. More money to spend on infrastructure or food stamps or crony-connected solar panel subsidies. Coupled with that was the appointment of Jack Lew as secretary of the Treasury. Participants in the 2011 grand bargain discussions reported that Lew was the most partisan and obdurate of administration negotiators. His appointment was a signal the president wanted no deal. Even so, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, a Democrat, and House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp, a Republican, engaged in extensive negotiations with a view to overall tax reform. They recognized that the high corporate tax rate handicapped U.S.-based rms. They understood as well that the U.S.s near-unique worldwide taxation policy hurt them further. Other countries tax only prots made domestically. The U.S. taxes prots made abroad minus any foreign corporate tax paid. As a result, U.S. corporations leave trillions in prots overseas because they get taxed if they bring it back home to do nefarious things such as create new jobs. All this is, or should be, in the news this week because of the proposed acquisition of U.S.-based Burger King by the Canada-based Tim Hortons doughnut chain. The new company would pay U.S. rates on prots made here, but less on prots made elsewhere. This is what the administration calls an inversion and which its cheerleaders denounce as unpatriotic. Several U.S.-based pharmaceutical and medical device rms have made similar transactions with a view to reducing total tax liability. But, as Judge Learned Hand wrote long ago, Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase ones taxes. Those who consider their taxes too low may donate money to the Treasury. Some people actually do so. Some liberals lament that many countries have been lowering their corporate rate to attract more businesses. Irelands low 12.5 percent corporate tax, plus its high-literacy work force and rule-of-law courts, have spurred much investment there. These liberals want to resist this race to the bottom. But as economists of just about all stripes agree, the corporate tax is not really paid by Scrooge McDuck-like gures wallowing in their money bins. The costs are passed along to consumers and employees. So theres a strong argument for eliminating the corporate income tax altogether. Absent that, theres an overwhelmingly strong argument for cutting the rates and reducing its extra-territorial reach. At the beginning of his presidency, when he was hailed as a politician uniquely amenable to compromise and reconciliation, Obama recognized the strength of this case. But it turns out that he lacks either the inclination or the skills to negotiate, or both. So we get denunciations of unpatriotic corporations rather than a policy that solves a readily solvable problem. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner. Readers can reach him via www. washingtonexaminer. com.Tax proposals to low-grade demagoguery Michael Barone Gov. Rick Perry of Texas is running for president again. What are his chances? Will he once again become a punch line? I have absolutely no idea. This isnt a horserace column. What Id like to do, instead, is take advantage of Perrys ambitions to talk about one of my favorite subjects: interregional differences in economic and population growth. You see, while Perrys hard-line stances and religiosity may be selling points for the Republican Partys base, his national appeal, if any, will have to rest on claims that he knows how to create prosperity. And its true that Texas has had faster job growth than the rest of the country. So have other Sunbelt states with conservative governments. The question, however, is why. The answer from the right is, of course, that its all about avoiding regula tions that interfere with business and keeping taxes on rich people low, thereby encouraging job creators to do their thing. But it turns out that there are big problems with this story, quite aside from the habit economists pushing this line have of getting their facts wrong. To see the problems, lets tell a tale of three cities. One of these cities is the place those of us who live in its orbit tend to call simply the city. And, these days, its a place thats doing pretty well on a number of fronts. But despite the inow of immigrants and hipsters, enough people are still moving out of greater New York a metropolitan area that, according to the Census, extends into Pennsylvania on one side and Connecticut on the other that its overall population rose less than 5 percent between 2000 and 2012. Over the same period, greater Atlantas population grew almost 27 percent, and greater Houstons grew almost 30 percent. Americas center of gravity is shifting south and west. But why? Is it, as people like Perry assert, because pro-business, prowealthy policies like those he favors mean opportunity for everyone? If that were the case, wed expect all those job opportunities to cause rising wages in the Sunbelt, wages that attract ambitious people away from moribund blue states. It turns out, however, that wages in the places within the United States attracting the most migrants are typically lower than in the places those migrants come from, suggesting that the places Americans are leaving actually have higher productivity and more job opportunities than the places theyre going. The average job in greater Houston pays 12 percent less than the average job in greater New York; the average job in greater Atlanta pays 22 percent less. So why are people moving to these relatively low-wage areas? Because living there is cheaper, basically because of housing. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, rents (including the equivalent rent involved in buying a house) in metropolitan New York are about 60 percent higher than in Houston, 70 percent higher than in Atlanta. In other words, what the facts really suggest is that Americans are being pushed out of the Northeast (and, more recently, California) by high housing costs rather than pulled out by superior economic performance in the Sunbelt. But why are housing prices in New York or California so high? Population density and geography are part of the answer. For example, Los Angeles, which pioneered the kind of sprawl now epitomized by Atlanta, has run out of room and has become a surprisingly dense metropolis. However, as Harvards Edward Glaeser and others have emphasized, high housing prices in slow-growing states also owe a lot to policies that sharply limit construction. Limits on building height in the cities, zoning that blocks denser development in the suburbs and other policies constrict housing on both coasts; meanwhile, looser regulation in the South has kept the supply of housing elastic and the cost of living low. So conservative complaints about excess regulation and intrusive government arent entirely wrong, but the secret of Sunbelt growth isnt being nice to corporations and the 1 percent; its not getting in the way of middleand working-class housing supply. And this, in turn, means that the growth of the Sunbelt isnt the kind of success story conservatives would have us believe. Yes, Americans are moving to places like Texas, but, in a fundamental sense, theyre moving the wrong way, leaving local economies where their productivity is high for destinations where its lower. And the way to make the country richer is to encourage them to move back, by making housing in dense, highwage metropolitan areas more affordable. So Rick Perry doesnt know the secrets of job creation, or even of regional growth. It would be great to see the real key affordable housing become a national issue. But I dont think Democrats are willing to nominate Mayor Bill de Blasio for president just yet. Paul Krugman is a columnist for The New York Times. He can be reached via www.

NORTH PORT A Port Charlotte man faces four counts of lewd or lascivious exhibition after authorities say he repeatedly masturbated in front of a teenage girl, according to the North Port Police Department. Sean David Price, 36, of the 2200 block of Lee Terrace, allegedly exposed himself the victim, 15 years old at the time, while working on his car at a home on Banter Circle in North Port. According to a report, the victim, now 16, contacted authorities Aug. 20 to inform them of the alleged abuse. She said Price acted as if he was working on his car, but would then whip it out and start mastur bating in front of her. The victim added that while fondling himself, Price would watch her and bite his lip, the report states. The victim told police the abuse started around August or September last year, and Price masturbated in front of her at least three times. Price was taken into custody Wednesday at the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce. He remains at the Sarasota County Jail on $145,000 bond. Price previously was charged in March with ve counts of lewd or lascivious molestation, after a monthslong investigation, in which North Port Police detectives claim he repeatedly fondled a 14-year-old girl, according to the NPPD. Price, who was living at the time on the 1000 block of Ohana Way, North Port, allegedly fondled the girl in December 2013 at a home on Banter Circle, a report shows. Price allegedly would expose himself and fondle the girl in order to show her what boys would do so she wouldnt feel weird, the report states. The victim told authorities it happened four times over the course of a week. Price was jailed, and later was released on $50,000 bond. A jury trial for the charges levied against Price in March is set for Oct. 27. Meanwhile, an arraignment date for the newest set of charges has not been set yet, according to Sarasota County Clerk of Courts.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comLocal man faces new child sex chargesBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER PRICE ARCADIA A DeSoto County school bus was involved in a hit-and-run early Thursday, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

Investigators also found what appeared to be a secret hideaway outside the house, which contained a repit used to destroy evidence, the report states. When members of the SWAT team arrived at the home early in the morning, they encountered and questioned Robert William Burns, 50, Craig Allen Makela, 33 who both lived at the house and Andrea Judith Burns, 42, Roberts wife who lives at a different house on the 400 block of Cobia Street, Venice. All three said they didnt do drugs. Narcotics detectives searched the home and found lithium batteries, butane gas, Coleman camp fuel, a large bottle of hydrochloric acid, Crystal Heat Drain Opener, sharp wire cutters, numerous large plastic jugs, plastic tubing, and receipts for similar items, which show a pattern of a subject purchasing items/ chemicals that are needed to cook methamphetamine, the report shows. Investigators also allegedly found smoking pipes, a bong, a hypodermic needle and some partially dissolved clonazepam and alprazolam pills. Near a shed outside, authorities saw something resembling a secret hideaway, that had makeshift walls and barricades, limiting view from the public road, the report states. A repit inside contained nasal decongestant medicine packs and cut-up batteries, which commonly are used in the one-pot meth-cooking method. Detectives said it appeared the suspects were trying to destroy evidence. All three suspects were charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia. Andrea additionally was charged with violation of probation for an unspecied charge out of Sarasota. The two men who lived at the house both additionally were charged with possession of a certain chemical substance with the intent to manufacture a controlled substance. Robert also faces two additional counts of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, and one count of manufacturing meth. Makela additionally was charged with delivering meth.

Our Town Page 10 C The Sun /Friday, August 29, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Derek Nelson of North Port served three and a half years in Vietnam. He rst went there in 1967 as an 18-yearold member of the 9th Infantry Division located in the Mekong Delta. During his second tour in 1969 he served with the 1st Logistics Command in Saigon. His last 18 months over there he was with the 1st Air Cavalry Division ghting Charlie (Viet Cong), wherever they could nd the enemy, in 14 different shootouts. Why would anyone agree to serve more than a single, one-year tour of duty in country during the Vietnam War? I had a full bird colonel ask me that the day I got my orders to leave Vietnam on June 26, 1971. I told him, If I leave, somebody elses son is going to have to come over here and take my place. I gured I could keep them from getting shot. Furthermore, I was familiar with the country. I could speak the language and I under stood what was going on in the country, the 64-year-old said. If I had had my druthers, I would have extended my last tour another six months and made it a full four years in country. I went in the Army in 1966 at 17 because my dad got tired of me racing stock cars. I started driving stock cars when I was 15. After basic at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, I ew to Vietnam on my 18th birthday. I arrived in Saigon at the 90th Replacement Depot and ended up being sent to Bear Cat in the Delta, the home of the 9th Infantry Division. When I arrived, I helped put an NCR-500 computer together. It was as big as two trailer trucks and took six people to operate. It would do about the same thing as anyones average computer today. The lieutenant in charge of the computer handed me a 1 -inch-thick manual and told me to gure out how to run the system. Once we get the computer up, Im going to give you three individuals and youre going to run it, the lieutenant told me. Nelson and his associates worked on the computer for about a month. They programmed in troop records, supply records and anything else that was needed. After that other people were assigned to take their place running the NCR500, and Nelson became a gun-toter in the 9th Infantry Divisions front lines in the Delta. Wed go out and looked for Charlie. We got in some reghts with the enemy. We did whatever they told us to do, he said. I remember I had some time off and I decided to go down and check out a petroleum tank farm south of us in the Delta. I decided one day to catch a ride down there. I took my M-14 (rie) with me and checked it out. Then I decided to hike back to my base at Bear Cat by myself. On the way back I heard this jet come in. Someone had called in an air strike on Charlie. I looked to my left, and a half-mile away I watched the napalm drop on an enemy position. It was a 10-mile hike back to my base. When I got back I caught hell for being out there by myself. I was young and stupid. My company commander was about ready to take my stripe, but he let it slide. The most exciting thing that happened to Nelson during his rst tour was Bob Hopes Christmas Show that came to Bear Cat in Raquel Welch was the main attraction for Nelson and his 9th Division buddies. We sat up front right by the stage and watched her do her thing. She was hot, he said with a grin half a lifetime later. Bob did his comic routine wearing a golng shirt and swinging a golf club with the help of his sidekick, Jerry Colonna. After the show a couple of us guys sitting up front were picked by an ofcer to be their escort back to their helicopter. It wasnt much fun because I didnt get to be in the Jeep with Raquel on the way back to the chopper. We watched her wave as they ew off. Tired of being out in the bushes, Nelson put in for a reassignment. He was sent to the 1st Logistics Command in Saigon. We took care of all the Armys supplies. I became a security guard protecting the goods from being stolen and resold on the black market. Initially we patrolled security on the Saigon docks. He was reassigned to the Long Binh Army Depot, east of Saigon, just in time for the Tet Offensive. It was during the countrywide enemy offensive during Tet that Nelson and his fellow guards helped protect the depot from the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army troops. One of his jobs at Long Binh was spray ing Agent Orange on the weeds around the parameter of the Army Depot. Theyd mix up batches of Agent Orange, put the defoliant in a tank truck and spray it on the weeds. We were in our fatigue uniforms when we were spraying the stuff on the bushes. They told us not to get any of the Agent Orange on our clothes or our skin. But they also told us the stuff was safe to be around. Nelson is lucky. He apparently has had no adverse effects from working with Agent Orange during the war. I remember one morning I got up early to go over to the mess hall. I had my breakfast and sat there for a while with coffee and a smoke, he said. I left and halfway back to my hooch I heard this incoming 122 mm enemy rocket. I yelled, Incoming! and jumped in a ditch. The rocket hit the mess hall where I just was and killed ve people and injured 15 or 20 more. It would have gotten me if I would have stayed for another cup of coffee. God was on my side that day. At the end of his second tour in Vietnam, Nelson could have rotated out of the country and headed home, but he didnt. Why? We heard about all this stuff with the Vietnam protesters back in the states. They were spitting on people and all that stuff. I had no desire to return home. I might have killed someone if they had spit on me. In 1970 he requested another transfer and ended up with the 1st Air Cavalry. Wed y into an area where the VC or NVA were active and try and take them out. Although wed try and keep them from coming back into a certain area they always did, he said. I spent a lot of time ying with a major in a little four-place observation helicopter. Any time he went up Id try and y with him. At the end of my three years in Vietnam, I extended for another six months. I wanted to stay right where I was because I was having such a good time. The day I was about to go home someone asked all of us who were leaving the country, Does anyone want to extend for six more months? I raised my hand. I was taken to see a colonel who reviewed all my papers, then inquired, Why do you want to extend another six months? Youve been here three and a half years. What are you trying to prove? Nelson explained he could speak the language, he liked Vietnam and he was having a good time. Son, youre out of here, the colonel said. He drove me to the waiting commercial airline and walked me up the steps. You go ahead and have a seat up front in rst class, he told me as he left. Nelson ew home by way of Japan, Alaska and New Jersey. He was bused to Fort Dix, N.J., and took a nal ight to the Sarasota-Bradenton Airport a few miles from where his parents were living in Englewood. He never ran the gauntlet of Vietnam protesters waiting for new military arrivals ying in from Nam. He missed all of that. He was hardly home a month when he reupped in the Army and was sent to Germany for three years. When he nally got out of the regular Army a second time, he eventually opened his own roong business in the Sarasota area. Nelson got in the Army Reserve for the next 13 years as a member of Battery-D, an artillery unit that met in Port Charlotte. His last hitch in the military was with a Tampa unit, the 317th MP Battalion. He served a total of 31 years as a member of the regular Army and Reserves. The North Port man and his wife, Cheryl, have one daughter, Amanda. If you have a war story, or if a friend or neighbor has one, contact Don Moore at donmoore39@ or 941-4262120.

Our Town Page 12 C The Sun /Friday, August 29, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE said while the audience booed. I am gravely concerned about the decision that was made tonight, and Ill try to make sense of this. Its an interesting time to serve as the leader of this district. The meeting adjourned without discussion regarding what test(s) if any now will be used in place of the state tests. The board members did not address whether the decision will include charter schools. Keith Martin, the boards attorney, was not sure that there were any immediate, clear consequences to the action. He said it was possible the governor could remove the School Board members from their positions of power. Go ahead and remove me from my position, Armstrong said. Im a plumber. I deal with worse things every day. The audience booed the dissenting board members who begged Armstrong, Scott and Fischer to table the decision until concrete plans could be made. You do need to have a plan in place, said Jeanne Dozier, who was phoned into the meeting. Obviously this is an issue that is near and dear to our hearts. But I think the audience would agree a plan is an absolute must. The audience loudly objected, and one person yelled: How much money do you make? The meeting brought out many notable groups and politicians, including the Florida Citizens Alliance, the Libertarian Party of Florida, and state Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen, R-Fort Myers. I came here to listen and learn today, primarily, Fitzenhagen told the board. Im all about bold, innovative thinking. But at the same time, I dont want us to do something without a plan in place. Testing is high-stakes; life is highstakes. The audience booed her comments. Throughout the tense three-hour meeting, more than 33 people came forward to share their thoughts on the matter. Emotions came to a head when mother Lori Jenkins took the podium. She said her son was on leave from school due to a terminal heart condition, yet the district still sent someone to proctor the FCAT exam at his home. The audience gasped with disgust. Hes terminal, hes going to die, but he goes to school! He does the stupid remedial classes! Thats how I know this is all about money, Jenkins yelled into the microphone before she hit her one-minute time limit and the audio was cut. She continued her speech as the audience called for the board to let her speak. Jenkins received a standing ovation. Going forward, School Board member-elect Pam LaRiviere said the district now must see how the Department of Education reacts. She predicted Wednesdays decision would serve as an impetus for many other districts around the state. Theres something about Lee County, she said. It has not lost its frontier attitude. I give us a lot of credit, but Im scared. That sense of excitement mingled with uncertainty was shared by Richard Beattie, a teacher at Island Coast High School. He teaches remedial courses for students who failed the FCAT. He wonders what purpose his classes now will have. Other than the questions of money and legality, what about implementation? he asked. Everybody has to take a deep breath. This begs a lot of questions.TESTSFROM PAGE 1 The former activeduty Marine was an attorney; a cattle rancher; a citrus farmer; president of his law firm; prosecuting attorney for Charlotte County; a member of the School Board; city attorney for Punta Gorda; president of the Charlotte County Bar Association; a linguist; a developer; a musician; a skilled golfer; a patron of the arts; a father, grandfather and great-grandfather all among a life, according to his admirers, always lived to the utmost. Born in Connecticut in 1928, he joined the Marines in 1946, and beginning a lifelong love of music, played saxophone for the Marine Corps Band at Camp Lejeune, N.C. After the service, he graduated from the University of Miami and the University of Miami School of Law, where he met and married his wife, Barbara, and moved to Charlotte County in 1957. He went to work at the Wotitzky Law Firm for Leo and Frank Wotitzky, before founding his own rm, Safron, Rooney and Dzurak. During his law career, he became the countys prosecuting attorney, Punta Gordas city attor ney and president of the county bar, and served on the Charlotte County School Board. According to his law partner, Mike Rooney, Safron, a really inter esting guy, was also a developer, developing the Port Charlotte Village manufactured home park on Kings Highway, and several small commercial centers in Charlotte County and Fort Myers. And he always supported lawyers less fortunate than he. He retired from the practice of law in 1998, and turned his pursuits to, among others, music and farming. He became a xture with the Charlotte County Concert Band, where he served as the organizations announcer and master of ceremonies, and sat in for an occasional saxophone gig, while his wife served on the bands board for 20 years, and they sponsored college scholarships for young musicians. Ed attended Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Punta Gorda, while his wife, a non-Catholic, taught for many years at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Port Charlotte, where she instituted the schools music program. At their summer home in Brevard, N.C., they supported the Brevard Music Center, where the center honored them after Barbaras death in 2012, proclaiming July 4, 2013, as Barbara and Ed Safron Day. But his rst love, according to Gail Manly, his executive secretary for many years, was farming particularly citrus farming. He told me, she said, that as he entered Florida for the rst time, he fell in love with the orange groves. He said to himself, she added, Im going to own some one day. He started out, according to Rooney, with a small cattle farm in the Murdock section of Charlotte County, before switching to citrus. His rst citrus grove, according to Manly, was a small one in the Washington Loop section off U.S. 17, east of Punta Gorda, before graduating to 800 acres in DeSoto County near Arcadia. He and his sons oper ated the 400-acre Citrus Groves business, while he, his sons and business partners among them Al Johns and Jack Stephenson, developers of Punta Gorda Isles ran Arcadia Citrus Inc. Safron was actively involved in the business until his death. In the terms of morals and character, Stephenson said, Ed was old-school, part of a throwback era. He was a straight shooter, a good a guy as youll ever nd. A gem to be around. He was a great person, (for) whom I had the utmost respect. Survivors include two sons, Philip (Maureen) Safron and John (Bridget) Safron (a third son, Gene, preceded him in death); six grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren; along with extended family, numerous nieces and nephews, and many friends.

SCOTT WEIGHS INWhile in Rotonda Thursday at Vineland Elementary School, where students already have been doing a Common Core pilot program for the past two years, Gov. Rick Scott said he wasnt sure about the ramifications of opting out of statewide standardized tests. I believe one of the unintended consequences is it could reduce federal funding dollars, Scott told a group of reporters pressing him on the subject. I dont believe they know all of the consequences of opting out. Lee County Public Schools received $280 million from the state last year, and even more from federal grants. Bureaucrats in Washington are trying to micromanage Floridas public education system, he said. We will see what impact it has. We are tired of the federal government telling us what is best for our students. We have high teaching standards in Florida. Students are working hard, and we are clearly headed in the right direction. On Thursday, Scott said he wants the U.S. Department of Education to reverse itself, and to allow Florida to decide how students still learning English should be counted in its A-to-F grading system. Scott and Education Commissioner Pam Stewart are sending a letter to U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, asking him to reverse the decision made earlier this month. Florida officials want those students fully counted in school+grade calculations only after they have been in Florida schools for at least two years. Their federal counterparts want them counted after a year. The U.S. Department of Education has 30 days to decide. If not, Scott threatened to continue fighting the federal government. Compiled by Sun Staff Writer Elaine Allen-Emrich Cultural Center board for 10 years, said he fully supports Carter in his new position. He is dedicated, and (has) proven he can be a good leader, Weikel said. Board members said it was Carters vision for the future, and the Cultural Centers place in it, that won him the job. Carter, who could not be reached for comment, will replace the retiring Jim Hageman, who served as executive director for the past nine years. Carters annual salary amount was not disclosed. In accepting his new role, Carter told trustees he would be turning over the reins of his insurance business to his son so he could devote himself full time to the Cultural Center. Previously, Carter served 12 years as division manager of AAA Auto Club South in Port Charlotte. One of his main challenges will be to use his business acumen to address the Cultural Centers $300,000 budget decit, while moving forward with a proposed $15 million reconstruction project. Goff, 76, with a long history in the construction industry, actually had hands-on involvement in renovating the original facility back in the 1960s, when it was known as Port Charlotte University, owing to its early commitment to educational programs. Working as a carpenter, Goff applied the nishing touches to the buildings interior when it operated out of a strip mall on Easy Street, near the U.S. 41 access road. The fourth-generation Charlotte County resident, who has served two separate terms on the board, now will set his sights on building the Cultural Center back up to its pre-eminent position in the community. We want to see a rebranding of the Cultural Center. I want it to be the gem of the community, he said. As I told the board, get ready to roll your sleeves up and get to work. Goff said the center currently is underused, saying more events need to be scheduled for the theater, banquet facilities and conference rooms. In addition, the perception of the facility as a senior center needs to be changed. We want to continue to provide services for seniors, but we need more opportunities for a wider variety of the population, he said. But with a great staff and group of volunteers already in place, he said there is room for improvement. Its a whole new day. Theres going to be a whole new look at the Cultural Center, Goff said. We want to preserve whats been great in the past, and enhance the possibilities for the future. Like our slogan says, This is the place that friendship built.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comREINSFROM PAGE 1 The animals former owner, who could not be reached for comment, could face several animal-cruelty charges.

Aaron Sofer, a Jewish seminary student from New Jersey, vanished last Friday while walking in woods not far from the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum in Jerusalem. His body was found earlier on Thursday. Following a forensic examination, the body was identied as that of missing person Aaron Sofer. Tests showed that no criminal act was committed and the body will be transferred to the family in the coming hours, a police spokeswoman said. No details on the condition of the body or possible clues surrounding the circumstances of the death were revealed. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said earlier that Sofer had been hiking with a friend, making their way up a hill and had lost contact with each other. In June, three Israeli seminary students, all teenagers, were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the occupied West Bank, some 30 kilometers (20 miles) south of Jerusalem, and later found dead. The Palestinian militant group Hamas later acknowledged responsibility for the killings, which helped precipitate seven weeks of war between militants in Gaza and Israel that ended with an open-ended ceasere on Tuesday. Rosenfeld said police including canine units, mounted ofcers and helicopters had combed the entire Jerusalem forest, which spans 310 acres at the outskirts of the city, along with volunteers for Sofer.

The affected peacekeepers are from the Philippines and Fiji, U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters. During a period of increased ghting beginning yesterday between armed elements and Syrian Arab Armed Forces within the area of separation in the Golan Heights, 43 peacekeepers from the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) were detained early this morning by an armed group in the vicinity of Al Qunaytirah, the U.N. press ofce said in a statement. It added that another 81 UNDOF peacekeepers were being restricted to their positions in the vicinity of Ar Ruwayhinah and Burayqah. Dujarric said the 81 trapped troops were from the Philippines and the 43 seized ones from Fiji. The United Nations is making every effort to secure the release of the detained peacekeepers, and to restore the full freedom of movement of the force throughout its area of operation, it said.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Friday, August 29, 2014 NATIONAL NEWS WASHINGTON (Reuters) The United States is intensifying its push to build an international campaign against Islamic State jihadist ghters in Iraq and Syria, including recruiting partners for potential joint military action, Obama administration ofcials said on Wednesday. Britain and Australia are potential candidates, U.S. ofcials said. Germany said it was in talks with the United States and other inter national partners about possible military action against Islamic State but made clear it would not participate. We are going to work politically and diplomatically with folks in the region, President Barack Obama told reporters on Thursday. And were going to cobble together the kind of coalition that we need for a long-term strategy as soon as we are able to t together the military, political and economic components of that strategy. Its unclear how many nations will sign up. Some such as trusted ally Britain harbor bitter memories of joining the U.S.-led coalition of the willing in the 2003 invasion of Iraq that included troops from 38 nations. Others such as France refused to join the action. The claims of the existence of weapons of mass destruction which spurred the coalition to act were found to be false. The United States, the ofcials said, could act alone if necessary against the militants, who have seized a third each of Iraq and Syria, declared open war against the West and want to establish a hub of jihadism in the heart of the Arab world. Senior White House aides met this week to discuss a strategy for expanding its assault on Islamic State, including the possibility of air strikes on the militants stronghold in eastern Syria an escalation that would almost certainly be riskier than the current U.S. campaign in Iraq. While Iraqs government welcomed the role of U.S. warplanes to attack the militants, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has warned that any strikes conducted without his countrys permission would be considered an act of aggression, potentially plunging any U.S.-led coalition into a broader conict with Syria. The government of British Prime Minister David Cameron said it has not received a U.S. request for air strikes. This is not something under discussion at the moment, a government spokeswoman said. Our focus remains on supporting the Iraq government and Kurdish forces so that they can counter the threat posed by ISIS, for example with the visit of our security envoy to Iraq this week and the provision of supplies to Kurdish forces. A spokesman for Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said humanitarian aid in Iraq could continue but declined to say whether Australia would join U.S.-led military action. Our response to any request from the United States, or other close allies and partners, will be based on whether there is an achievable overall humanitarian purpose and a clear and proportionate role for Australia as well as on a careful assessment of the risks, Abbotts spokesman said.US seeks coalition against Islamic State fighters REUTERS PHOTOU.S. President Barack Obama answers questions in the White House Press Brieng Room ahead of a meeting with his national security council in Washington, Thursday. NEW YORK (Reuters) Bitcoin is catching on at U.S. online merchants including and Expedia, as customers use a digital currency that just a few years ago was virtually unknown but is now showing some staying power. Though sales paid for in bitcoin so far at vendors interviewed for this article have been a fraction of one percent, they expect that as acceptance grows, the online currency will one day be as ubiquitous as the internet. Bitcoin isnt going anywhere; its here to stay, said Michael Gulmann, vice president of global products at Expedia Inc. in Seattle, the largest online travel agent. We want to be there from the beginning. Expedia started accepting bitcoin pay ments for hotel bookings on July 11. Until recently a niche alternative currency touted by a fervent group of followers, bitcoin has evolved into a software-based payment online system. Bitcoins are stored in a wallet with a unique identication number and companies like Coinbase and Blockchain can hold the currency for the user. When buying an item from a merchants website, a customer simply clicks on the bitcoin option and a pop-in window appears where he can type in his wallet ID number. Still, broad-based adoption of bitcoin is at least ve years away because most consumers still prefer to use credit cards, analysts said. There are also worries about bitcoins volatility: its price in U.S. dollars changes every day. On Wednesday, bitcoin was up 0.4 percent at $514.09. That risk is borne by the consumer and the bitcoin payment processor, such as Coinbase or Bitpay, not the retailer. The vendor doesnt hold the bitcoin and is paid in U.S. dollars. As soon as a customer pays in bitcoin, the digital currency goes to the pay ment processor and the processor immediately pays the merchant, for a fee of less than 1 percent. Payment processors do some form of hedging though, said Gil Luria, a nancial technology analyst at Wedbush Securities in Los Angeles. These entities would, for instance, sell bitcoins in the market to offset the ones they have processed and in their books, so theyre not left with much exposure, Luria said. The only risk for the retailer is if the counterparty, or payment processor, doesnt fulll its obligation. That risk is minimal, Luria said. Coinbase and Bitpay are now well-funded startups and they have put a lot of resources behind security, Luria said. You can consider them as secure counterparties, as opposed to a year ago, when they were very small.Adding to earningsFor some, it has become a benecial situation for retailers, as they take advantage of lower transaction fees and sales from new customers. In at least one instance, bitcoin sales are expected to pad a companys bottom line, adding 4 cents a share to 2014 earnings at Salt Lake City-based online merchant, said chief executive ofcer Patrick Byrne. To date, there are about 63,000 merchants globally accepting bitcoin, estimates from data provider CoinDesk show. It forecasts that gure to rise to 100,000 by year-end. Overstocks Byrne estimated bitcoin sales of between $6 million and $8 million by the end of 2014, a fraction of the companys total revenue. More importantly for Byrne, the bulk of bitcoin sales comes from new customers, who would otherwise not shop at Overstock if the website didnt offer bitcoin payments. Bitcoin owners tend to be high net-worth individuals and tech-savvy consumers.Bitcoin shows staying power as online merchants chase digital sparkle ATLANTA (Reuters) U.S. infant vaccination rates for diseases such as measles, mumps and rubella increased or remained stable at high levels in 2013, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Thursday. Immunization rates exceeded 90 percent for some vaccines, and fewer than 1 percent of infants received no vaccinations at all, the CDC said. Concerns remain, however, that children are not always getting their shots on time. One in 12 children was late receiving a rst dose of the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), leaving them particularly vulnerable to measles, the CDC said. As of Aug. 8, there had been 593 measles cases in the United States this year, the highest since 2000. Most cases have been in patients who were either not vaccinated or did not know whether they had received the vaccine, the CDC said. Immunization rates for children varied widely by state. For the rst dose of MMR vaccine, the rates ranged from 86 percent in Colorado, Ohio and West Virginia to 96.3 percent in New Hampshire, the CDC study showed. Immunization rates for some diseases were 8 to 12 percentage points lower for children living below the poverty level, according to the CDC report, which recommended stronger efforts to increase vaccinations in poorer areas. Nationally, the vaccination rates for rotavirus, which can cause severe diarrhea, increased from 69 percent in 2012 to 73 percent in 2013, the CDC said. The rate of children receiving the rst dose of a vaccine against Hepatitis B rose from 72 percent to 74 percent during that time, the agency said. The CDC said health providers still face a challenge of ensuring children receive booster doses in their second year of life for several vaccines, including those that prevent diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis, as well as Pneumococcal disease.CDC: Infant vaccination rates high | NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFSComedian Joan Rivers, 81, rushed to New York hospitalNEW YORK (Reuters) Acerbic comedian and fashion critic Joan Rivers was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York on Thursday after she reportedly stopped breathing during surgery on her vocal chords at a nearby clinic, the hospital said.

Heroin overdoses killed 420 people in the city in 2013, the highest number in a decade, the health department said. The illegal drug was the most common substance involved in overdose deaths, involved in 54 percent of all incidents last year. The largest increase in rates of heroin overdoses was seen in the citys wealthiest neighbor hoods, the department said, rising to 5.6 deaths per 100,000 people in 2013, from 1.9 in 2010. The surge in heroin use gained attention in February, when actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his New York City apartment on Feb. 2 with a needle in his arm. Authorities attributed his death to an overdose of heroin and other drugs.Search resumes for pilot of crashed fighter plane(Reuters) The search resumed on Thursday for the pilot of a Massachusetts Air National Guard F-15C ghter that crashed in mountainous western Virginia, ofcials said.

More than 100 police and rescue personnel searched the rugged area on Wednesday, backed by helicopters and other aircraft, Massachusetts Barnes Air National Guard Base said in a statement.

Representative Tom Price, a Georgia Republican, said on Twitter: President says we dont have a strategy yet to deal with #ISIS. Thats obvious and increasingly unacceptable. Earnest said Obama was referring to military options and that Obama has a comprehensive strategy for confronting the group through diplomatic means.Gay rights activists face charges over sit-inSALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) Thirteen Utah gay rights activists briey arrested six months ago during a sit-in at the State Capitol to demand lawmakers consider an anti-discrimination bill are now facing misdemeanor charges linked to the protest, according to state court records.

The Sun /Friday, August 29, 2014 WIRE Page 3 WORLD NEWS DOHA (Reuters) Hamas will not cease resisting Israel until all its demands are met, the groups overall leader Khaled Meshaal said on Thursday, adding the latest Gaza conict was only a milestone to reaching our objective. Speaking at a news conference in Doha, where he lives in exile, Meshaal said the group would never give up its arms as part of any deal. He also said the groups military commander, caught earlier this month in an Israeli air strike, was ne. You cannot contain the resistance, because the resistance is in our thoughts and in our souls our resistance will continue until all our demands are met and we are getting closer to victory and al-Quds (Jerusalem), he said. This is not the end. This is just a milestone to reaching our objective. We know that Israel is strong and is aided by the international community. We will not restrict our dreams or make compromises to our demands, Meshaal said. Israel launched its assault on the Gaza strip with the declared aim of stopping rocket attacks against Israel and destroying tunnels it said Hamas, which refuses to recognize Israels right to exist, was using to inltrate the country. Hamas also called on Egypt to open the Rafah border crossing, as a brotherly action. The weapons of the resistance are sacred and we will not accept that it be up for negotiation, Meshaal said. There is no politics without resistance and there is no resistance without arms. Both Israel and Egypt view Hamas as a security threat and are seeking guarantees that weapons will not enter Gaza, a narrow, densely populated territory of 1.8 million people. Speaking next to a large billboard with the slogan A nation constructing its victory, Meshaal presented the current Gaza truce as a victory for the Palestinian people. Our enemy only comes under pressure when they are under re, he said. As our rockets hit them, they were forced to hold talks with us. Palestinian health ofcials say 2,139 people, most of them civilians, including more than 490 children, have been killed in the enclave since July 8, when Israel launched an offensive. Israels death toll stood at 64 soldiers and six civilians.Hamas leader: Gaza only milestone to reaching our objective BEIRUT (Reuters) Islamic State fighters executed scores of Syrian soldiers captured when the militants seized an airbase in the province of Raqqa on the weekend, according to a video posted on YouTube on Thursday. The video, confirmed as genuine by an Islamic State fighter, showed the bodies of dozens of men lying face down wearing nothing but their underwear. They were stretched out in a line that appeared to be dozens of meters long. A separate pile of bodies was shown near by. Reuters could not independently verify the authenticity of the video. The caption beneath it said the dead numbered 250. An Islamic State fighter in Raqqa told Reuters via the Internet: Yes, we have executed them all. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors violence in the war, put the death toll at more than 120. Islamic State, a radical offshoot of al-Qaida, stormed Tabqa airbase on Sunday after days of clashes with the army and said it had captured and killed soldiers and officers in one of the bloodiest confrontations yet between the two sides. The capture of Tabqa, the Syrian armys last foothold in that area, and apparent parading and killing of large numbers of its soldiers shows how Islamic State has cemented its grip on the north of the country. The video begins by showing the captives apparently being marched in the desert with their hands behind their heads and watched by armed men. An Islamic State fighter repeatedly shouts out Islamic State, to which the men reply It shall remain.Video shows Islamic State executing scores of Syrian soldiers | WORLD NEWS BRIEFSChina tells US to reduce or halt close surveillance patrolsBEIJING (Reuters) China on Thursday urged the United States to cut back on, or even stop, its close surveillance of the Asian giant using patrol aircraft, if it seriously seeks to repair damaged bilateral ties. Ties between the worlds two largest economies have been strained by competing territorial claims between China and its neighbors, some of them U.S. allies, in the South China and East China seas. The two countries have exchanged barbs over a jet intercept of a U.S. Navy patrol plane by a Chinese aircraft last week, with the United States saying the Chinese jet came within 10 meters (33 feet) of its plane over the sea. If the United States really hopes to avoid impacting bilateral relations, the best course of action is to reduce or halt close surveillance of China, Defense Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun said in a statement on the ministrys website.Cameron warns of economic threat from Scottish breakawayGLASGOW, Scotland (Reuters) British Prime Minister David Cameron told Scots on Thursday that much of their industry and more than one million jobs could be put in jeopardy if they vote next month to leave the United Kingdom. In a high-stakes gamble three weeks before a refer endum, Cameron traveled to Glasgow to spell out the risks of secession, having previously remained largely on the sidelines of the debate due to both his and his Conservative partys limited appeal in Scotland. Ignoring concerns that the campaign to keep the union together has been too negative, Cameron re-entered the fray to warn against the dangers of leaping into the great unknown. Scotland does twice as much trade with the rest of the UK than with the rest of the world put together, he told a dinner attended by about 230 members of Scotlands business community. Trade that helps to support one million Scottish jobs. This success doesnt happen by accident. It happens because of the skill of people in Scotland and the opportunities that come from being part of something bigger.Czech PM would support NATO strengthening in the eastPRAGUE (Reuters) The Czech Republic would support NATO strengthening its military presence in its eastern European members, Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka was quoted as saying on Thursday.

NATO is considering boosting its presence in its new member states in central and eastern Europe in response to Russias involvement in the Ukrainian conict.UN: Not possible to finish Afghan vote audit by Sept. 2KABUL (Reuters) Afghanistans U.N. representative told President Hamid Karzai on Thursday that the audit of a disputed election would not be nished by Sept. 2, when Karzai had hoped to see a new leader inaugurated. The United Nations is supervising the audit of votes from a run-off ballot between the two candidates, Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani.

In a meeting with Karzai, U.N. envoy Jn Kubi told the outgoing president a rigorous and credible audit required time, but could be completed around 10 September, said a U.N. statement. In a previous statement, Karzai had said the inauguration of Afghanistans new president must take place a month after the original inauguration date of Aug. 2.Malaysia, Australia to share costs for latest phase of MH370 searchSYDNEY (Reuters) Malaysia on Thursday said it would share with Australia the cost of the latest effort to uncover signs of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, in the hope of unlocking modern aviations greatest mystery. Months of searches have failed to turn up any trace of the missing Boeing 777 aircraft, which disappeared on March 8, carrying 239 passengers and crew shortly after taking off from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur, bound for Beijing. Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai told a news conference in Canberra that the two countries would evenly split the costs of the new search phase, estimated at up to A$52 million ($48.65 million). So it is important here that we would like to thank Australia for leading this search and we have so far committed and spent about A$50 million and we are also going to match the Australians in the tender cost for the search, he said. The latest phase of the search is expected to start within a month and take up to a year, focusing on a 60,000-square-kilometers (23,000-squaremiles) patch of sea oor some 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) west of Perth.Pakistan army steps in to resolve political crisisISLAMABAD (Reuters) Pakistans army stepped into a political struggle between the countrys embattled prime minister and the opposition on Thursday, signaling a possible end to a crisis that has destabilized the coup-prone nation. Pakistan has been gripped by mass rallies for more than two weeks, with protesters led by cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan and rebrand cleric Tahir ul-Qadri camped outside parliament demanding Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif resign. Attempts to resolve the crisis through talks have failed, creating a deadlock and raising the specter of violence as thousands of increasingly impatient activists, some armed with sticks, massed in the heart of Islamabad despite intense heat. rfntbn 1-800-345-5273 f 65%OFF rf ntb ENTIRE STOCK f f nnb NEW REDUCTIONS JUST TAKEN!CLEARANCE 50474851 4mskw,our /

Ive never caught anything like it. LaPlante helps her father run the familys Miss Meghans Lobster Catch business in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. The blue color is the result of a rare genetic mutation that causes the lobster to produce an excessive amount of a particular protein. Most lobsters are dark bluish green to greenish brown. Scientists estimate the blue coloring occurs in only one out of 2 million lobsters. LaPlante and her father have agreed to donate the lobster to the Maine State Aquarium.ODD NEWS Rare blue lobster trapped by fatherdaughter team ALMANACToday is Friday, Aug. 29, the 241st day of 2014.

In Britain, drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline said an experimental Ebola vaccine is being fast-tracked into human studies and it plans to produce up to 10,000 doses for emer gency deployment if the results are good. So far 3,069 cases have been reported in the outbreak but the WHO said the actual number could already be two to four times higher. This is not a West African issue or an African issue. This is a global health security issue, WHOs Assistant DirectorGeneral Dr Bruce Aylward told reporters in Geneva. With a fatality rate of 52 percent, the death toll stood at 1,552 as of Aug. 26. That is nearly as high as the total from all recorded outbreaks since Ebola was discovered in what is now Democratic Republic of Congo in 1976. The gures do not include 13 deaths from a separate Ebola outbreak announced at the weekend in Congo, which has been identied as a differ ent strain of the virus. Aylward said tackling the epidemic would need thousands of local staff and 750 international experts. It is a big operation. We are talking (about) well over 12,000 people operating over multiple geographies and high-risk circumstances. It is an expensive operation, he said. The operation marks a major raising of the response by the WHO, which had been accused by some aid agencies of reacting too slowly to the outbreak. Medical charity Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF) welcomed the WHO plan but said the important thing was now to act upon it. Huge questions remain about who will implement the elements in the plan, said MSF operations director Brice de le Vingne. None of the organizations in the most-affected countries currently have the right set-up to respond on the scale necessary to make a serious impact.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 on the humanitarian situation in Syria, was also discussing the issue of the kidnapped peacekeepers, Lyall Grant said. The council later issued a statement strongly condemning the seizure of the peacekeepers and calling for their immediate release. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon echoed the council words in his own statement of condemnation. Dujarric was asked about the rules for peacekeepers in such situations. In extreme circumstances, these troops are trained and prepared and equipped to defend themselves, but, obviously, each situation has to be analyzed on a caseby-case basis, he said. U.N. ofcials say that the peacekeepers, whose job is to monitor the cessation of hostilities, carry small arms that are only to be used in extreme cir cumstances. In previous situations where UNDOF peacekeepers were held hostage, the troops did not use their weapons. The Quneitra crossing on the Golan is a strategic plateau captured by Israel in a 1967 Middle East war. Syria and Israel technically remain at war. Syrian troops are not allowed in an area of separation under a 1973 cease-re formalized in 1974. UNDOF monitors the area of separation, a narrow strip of land running about 45 miles from Mount Hermon on the Lebanese border to the Yarmouk River frontier with Jordan. There are 1,223 UNDOF peacekeepers from six countries.MILITANTSFROM PAGE 1 again denied the presence of its soldiers in Ukraine, using language redolent of the Cold War. We have noticed the launch of this informational canard and are obliged to disappoint its overseas authors and their few apologists in Russia, a ministry ofcial, General-Major Igor Konashenkov, told Interfax news agency. The information contained in this material bears no relation to reality. But skeptical Western governments appeared to be running out of patience with Moscows denials. Referring to talks that Putin held with Poroshenko just two days ago, British Prime Minister David Cameron said: It is simply not enough to engage in talks in Minsk, while Russian tanks continue to roll over the border into Ukraine. Such activity must cease immediately. Polands foreign minister said Russian aggression had created the most serious secu rity crisis in Europe for decades. A top NATO ofcial said Russia had signicantly escalated its military interfer ence in Ukraine in the past two weeks. We assess well over 1,000 Russian troops are now operating inside Ukraine, said Dutch Brigadier-General Nico Tak, head of NATOs crisis management center. They are supporting separatists (and) ghting with them. Two human rights advisers to Putin said that more than 100 Russian troops had died in Ukraine in a single attack on Aug. 13, and one of them said she considered Russias actions an invasion. Global stock markets fell on news of the worsening crisis, which has prompted the United States and European Union to impose sanctions on Moscow and led both Russia and NATO to step up military exercises, creating the tensest East-West standoff since the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. The United States is considering a number of options in response to Russian involvement in eastern Ukraine and believes sanctions are the most effective tool, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said an EU summit on Sunday would discuss the possibility of further sanctions.REBELSFROM PAGE 1 REUTERS PHOTOA satellite image provided to Reuters by Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) Thursday and taken by DigitalGlobe on Aug. 23, shows what is reported by SHAPE to be the pres ence of Russian Self-Propelled Artillery in Ukraine.

Crist shared hugs and a kiss with the opponent that he resoundingly defeated in Tuesdays primaries, former state legislator Nan Rich, who introduced him as the man who will lead the Democratic ticket to victory in November. This kind of unity doesnt ordinarily happen in the Democratic Party. Well, its a new day, Crist said at an event in Orlando. Crist is running against Republican Governor Rick Scott, who easily cruised to primary victory. Calling themselves the peoples team, the tour made stops in Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, where Crist was joined on stage by a bevy of big-name Democrats, including Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Florida Senator Bill Nelson and Crists running mate, Annette Taddeo, among others. Wasserman Schultz tweeted: Floridians can agree that theres only one candidate for Gov that shares their interest and thats @CharlieCrist! For Crist, who governed Florida as a Republican from 2007 to 2011 and now wants the job back under a different party label, the display was designed to quell any lingering doubts about whether he would be embraced by Democrats. His resounding primary victory was accompanied by dismal voter turnout, with voters in the Democratic stronghold in south Florida showing particularly little enthusiasm for the election. Democrats say they are now rallying around a race that polls show to be in a virtual tie. Crist urged Democrats to join him in winning back the governors mansion. In 68 days you, me, and Florida are going to be Scott free.Florida Democrats rally around Crist for governor ANKARA (Reuters) Tayyip Erdogan was sworn in as Turkeys president on Thursday, cementing his position as its most powerful leader of recent times, in a step opponents fear heralds more authoritarian rule and widening religious influence in public life. Reading the oath of office in a ceremony in parliament, Erdogan vowed to protect Turkeys independence and integrity, to abide by the constitution and by the principles of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, founder of the modern secular republic. Erdogan, who had been prime minister since 2003, has consistently presented his time in office as a historic mission to transform Turkey domestically and as a regional power. Deputies of the main opposition CHP walked out shortly before Erdogans oath. Party leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu boycotted the ceremony, arguing Erdogan breached the constitution by remaining premier for the weeks after his presidential victory. Were now more worried than ever about one-man, autocratic rule in Turkey, CHP deputy Aykan Erdemir told Reuters. Around 200 protesters chanting slogans against Erdogan and carrying banners reading Presidency cannot wash away corruption or theft gathered later in Istanbul. Police fired teargas and water cannons to disperse the crowd. After laying a wreath at Ataturks mausoleum in the heart of Ankara, Erdogans limousine was escorted by military cavalcade to the presidential palace where he was greeted by outgoing president Abdullah Gul, a co-founder of Erdogans AK Party. Later on Thursday, Erdogan formally asked outgoing foreign minister Ahmet Davutoglu to form a new government and be his prime minister. The cabinet lineup is expected on Friday. Erdogans victory in Turkeys first popular presidential election this month capped more than a decade as prime minister in which the economy has tripled in dollar terms and the country has carved out a growing, though often controversial, role in the politics of the Middle East. Opponents say his ambition to establish an executive presidential system will concentrate too much power in the hands of a leader with autocratic instincts and roots in Islamist politics, and lead the EU candidate country ever further from the secular ideals of Ataturk.Turkeys Erdogan consolidates power aaaaaQRussian self propelled artillery inside Ukraine mow.

The Sun /Friday, August 29, 2014 WIRE Page 5 STATE NEWS TALLAHASSEE (Reuters) Opponents of tuition vouchers in Florida led suit on Thursday against the states corporate tax credit scholarship program, saying it illegally subsidizes religious schools and violates the states requirement to guarantee uniform public education for all. Former Governor Jeb Bush had originally introduced opportunity scholarships 15 years ago. After an appeals court ruled in 2006 that the scholarships violated the prohibition of state aid to any church, sect or religious domination, the legislature separately enacted the corporate tax-credit system. Lawmakers expanded it in the past legislative session. Bush and Governor Rick Scott have championed the scholarship program, saying it helps students get into schools that their parents other wise could not afford. The lawsuit by the Florida Education Association (FEA), a federation of teacher and education workers labor unions, and other critics of the plan was led in Leon County Circuit Court. It cites appellate court rulings from 2006 that said the program violated two parts of Floridas Constitution: the requirement that all students get a uniform education and the section prohibiting tax aid to religious institutions. The courts told the legislature and the governor that the voucher program was illegal and provided them with two good reasons why vouchers didnt pass constitutional muster, Joanne McCall, vice president of the FEA, told a news conference. But political leaders didnt listen and continue to expand voucher programs, like the tax-credit vouchers, which are being challenged today. Critics of voucher systems say they drain funds from U.S. public schools and subsidize overtly religious education. Supporters say they offer families greater choice in schools. Once again, the usual Obama team of trial lawyers and unions are playing politics instead of putting Florida children rst, Scott said in a statement. Scott, a Republican, is campaigning for re-election against former Governor Charlie Crist, who has been endorsed by the FEA. In a statement, Bush called the suit an attack on parental choice by an entrenched education establishment more concerned about protecting the status quo than helping families. Bush said up to 69,000 needy students can apply for the aid, and Scott said nearly 70 percent of them are black or Hispanic. Joining the FEA in the lawsuit were the Florida School Boards Association, League of Women Voters, Florida PTA, Association of School Administrators, Florida NAACP and Americans United for Separation of Church and State.Opponents of tuition vouchers file lawsuit MIAMI (Reuters) An appeals court in Florida on Thursday rejected a motion by its attorney general that urged the states top court to delay a ruling on its same-sex marriage ban until the U.S. Supreme Court eventually decides on the issue. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi argued that the debate about gay nuptials involves issues central to the U.S. Constitution, and that therefore only the nations highest court has the authority to make a decision. In a brief ruling, a judge in Floridas Miami-based Third District Court of Appeal rejected Bondis motion. On Wednesday, Floridas Second District Court of Appeal asked the state Supreme Court to rule on what it said was a matter of great public importance and will have a great effect on the proper administration of justice throughout the state. A week ago, U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle of Floridas Northern District in Tallahassee became the fth judge in Florida to rule against the ban, which was approved by voters in 2008, and the rst on the states federal bench. Hinkle found that the prohibition on gay nuptials violated equal protection and due process protections under the U.S. Constitution. At least 30 state and federal courts have ruled against same-sex marriage bans since last years U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down parts of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which dened marriage as between one man and one woman. The Supreme Court is expected to take up the issue in its coming term, which starts in October and ends in June. It will likely be the most momentous civil rights case in years.Appeals court says state can rule on gay marriage ban | STATE NEWS BRIEFSBees swarm Fort Myers homeFORT MYERS (Fort Myers News-Press) A swarm of bees have made themselves at home in the yard of a house of the 1400 block of Heiman Avenue. The Tice Fire and Rescue District responded to a bee attack at around 5:30 p.m. today in the neighborhood near Ballard Road and E. Michigan Avenue. One person was sent to the hospital for injuries, Fire Chief Ted Ross said. He said more and more people are nding colonies of feral bee hives within their homes. A man was seen coming out of the home with a towel wrapped on his head as a form of protection to retrieve something from his car while bees ew above him. A reporter that attempted to ask the man about the bee infestation was chased away by a solitary bee. From a window from the home a woman yelled: Its not a good time right now. Ross said people within the neighborhood should be cautious as they make their way outside. The re district does not kill bees but calls in experts who try to calm the hive down, then bee keepers will attempt to move the bees, Ross said. Depending on aggression, killing the bees is the last option, he said.Man caught killing, eating threatened tortoisesMIAMI (Reuters) Wildlife authorities in Florida caught a man who killed and ate 15 gopher tortoises and planned to slaughter 11 more of the threatened reptiles, a spokeswoman said on Thursday. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said a tip-off led an ofcer to woods in Citrus County on Floridas west coast where he found tire tracks and shells dumped on the ground. Returning the next day, he found a container holding 11 live gopher tortoises. He hid himself and waited, guring the subject would return that afternoon, the FWC said in a statement, adding that when the man came back he admitted to feasting on the threatened species. Katie Purcell, a spokeswoman for the FWCs law enforcement division, said prosecutors were preparing appropriate charges. The 11 tortoises were set free. The ofcer involved, Thomas Reid, told a local TV station, WFTS Tampa Bay, the man knew what he was doing was a crime. I dont think anyone would hide tortoises out in the woods if they didnt think they were doing anything wrong, Reid said.Environmentalists ready to sue over ports deep dredgeMIAMI (Reuters) Environmentalists said on Thursday they are prepared to sue the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers after researchers found dredging to deepen the port of Miami is burying coral and could destroy the surrounding marine ecosystem for years to come. All were asking for is that they follow state and federal law and theyre simply not doing that, said Rachel Silverstein, executive director of the Biscayne Bay Waterkeeper, a local environmental advocacy group. The dredge began in mid-June and will continue for another year. It is part of nearly $2 billion of infrastructure work that the port hopes will attract the larger cargo ships expected to pass through the expanded Panama Canal when it is completed. By Steven Wuzubia Health Correspondent; Clearwater, Florida: Dr. Meir Shinitzky, Ph.D., is a former visiting professor at Duke University, recipient of the prestigious J.F. Kennedy Prize and author of more than 200 international scientic papers on human body cells. But now hes come up with what the medical world considers his greatest accomplishment-A vital compound. so powerful, its reported to repair even regrow damaged brain cells. In laymans terms -Bring back your memory power. And leave you feeling more focused and clear-headed than you have in years! Dr. Shinitsky explains this phenomenon in simple terms; Science has shown when your brain nutrient levels drop, you can start to experience memory problems and overall mental fatigue. Your ability to concentrate and stay focused becomes compromised. And gradually, a mental fog sets in. It can damage every aspect of y our life. Not only do brain cells die but they become dy sfunctional as if the y begin to fade away as we age. This affects our ability to have mental clarity and focus and impacts our ability to remember things that were easy for us to do in our 20s and 30s.Why Now, Why So Fuzzy?Scientists think the biggest cause of brain deterioration in older people is the decreased functioning of membranes and molecules that surr ound the br ain cells. These really are the transmitters that connect the tissues or the brain cells to one another that help us with our sharp memory, clear thinking and mental focus, even our powers to reason well. When we are in our 20s according to Dr. Shinitzky our body produces key substances like phosphatidylserine and phosphatidic acid.unfortunately they are believed to be critical essential nutrients that just fade away with age, much like our memories often do leading to further mental deterioration. As we get older it becomes more frustrating as there is little comfort when you forget names misplace your keys. .. or just feel a little confused And even though your foggy memory gets laughed off as just another senior moment, its not very funny when it keeps happening to you. The Missing Link is Found and TestedIts hard to pronounce thats for sure, but it certainly appears from the astounding clinical research that this one vital nutrient phosphatidylserine (PS) can really make a huge difference in our mental wellness. 17 different double blind studies with placebo controlled groups have been involved in the clinical research of PS with patients between the ages of 55-80 years of age. Periodically the researchers gave these patients memory and cognitive tests and the results were simply amazing: 1) PS patients outperformed placebo patients in All 5 Tests 100% Success Rate 2) After only 45 days there was a measurable improvement in mental function 3) After 90 days, there was an impressive and amazing improvement in mental function The group taking phosphatidylserine, not only enjoyed sharper memory, but listen to this... they were also more upbeat and remarkably more happy. In contrast, the moods of the individuals who took the placebo (starch pill), remained mental or mood improvement at all.Unblock Your BrainThis incredible PS nutrient feeds your brain the vital nutrient it needs to stay healthy... PS now has the attention of some of the worlds most prominent brain experts. It has been written up and published in leading science and medical journals and its ndings have electried the International scientic community.My Memory Was Starting to Fail Me. I would forget all kinds of things and something that I just said earlier in the day would have completely slipped my mind. I almost forgot my grandda ughter s birthda y and that would have been horrible. I had forgotten lots of other little things along the way. I was worried about it. Over the last se veral months Iv e noticed my memory seemed to be getting pretty unreliable and so I thought Id better do something about it now. So when I read about this amazing PS nutrient and how much it would help me with my memory I wanted to try it. Its great! I have actual recall now, which is super. After about 6 weeks of taking it on a daily basis is when I began to notice that I wasnt forgetting things anymore. Thanks to PS for giving me my memory back. Its given me a lot more self-condence and self-esteem. I would not trust my memory without it.

Gross domestic product expanded at a 4.2 percent annual rate instead of the previously reported 4.0 percent pace, the Commerce Department said on Thursday. Both business spending and exports were revised higher, while a buildup in business inventories was smaller than previously estimated a mix of growth that provides a stronger underpinning for the remainder of the year. Separate reports showing a second straight weekly decline in the number of Americans ling new claims for jobless benets and a jump in home purchase contracts also suggested underlying momentum in the economy. The economy is in good shape and getting better, said Joel Naroff, chief economist at Naroff Economic Advisers in Holland, Pennsylvania. While the economy shrank at a 2.1 per cent rate in the rst quarter, economists expect growth of around 2 percent for the year as a whole, with GDP expanding about 3 per cent in 2015. The dollar rmed against a basket of cur rencies on the data, but U.S. stocks were down as traders kept a wary eye on Ukraine, which accused Russian forces of entering the country. Prices for U.S. Treasury debt rose as the troubles in Ukraine triggered ight-to-safety bids. One report on Thursday showed the number of Americans ling new applications for jobless aid slipped 1,000 to a seasonally adjusted 298,000 last week. In a third report, the National Association of Realtors said its Pending Home Sales index, which leads home resales by a month or two, jumped 3.3 percent to an 11-month high in July. It was the latest sign the housing market recovery was back on track after faltering in the second half of 2013.US second-quarter growth revised higherNEW YORK (Reuters) U.S. stocks edged lower on Thursday after the latest tension between Ukraine and Russia snapped the focus of investors back to the volatile region, but U.S. economic data helped curb losses. Worries over tension abroad had largely receded from Wall Street, with major indexes seeing few negative days over the past two weeks, and the Dow and S&P both hitting record highs. Ukraines security and defense council said the border town of Novoazovsk and other areas of Ukraines southeast had fallen under the control of Russian forces, together with rebels. The U.S. accused Russia of active ghting in Eastern Ukraine, and said it was considering a range of responses, including more sanctions. While few U.S. companies have heavy exposure to either country, investors are concerned about the potential response by the United States and Europe to any escalation in hostility. A trio of economic reports pointed to improving conditions and helped mitigate declines. The second reading of gross domestic product showed the U.S. economy rebounded more strongly than initially thought in the second quarter, while jobless claims fell for a second straight week. In addition, July pending home sales rose far more than had been expected to an 11-month high. The PHLX housing index lost 0.4 percent, but was off earlier lows. The data did cheer things up, but the stuff that is happening in the Ukraine is worrisome and Im glad to at least see a little bit of red out there today because of that, said Kim Forrest, senior equity research analyst, Fort Pitt Capital Group in Pittsburgh. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 42.44 points or 0.25 percent, to 17,079.57, the S&P 500 lost 3.38 points or 0.17 percent, to 1,996.74 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 11.93 points or 0.26 percent, to 4,557.70. Since falling to a near three-month low on Aug. 7, the benchmark S&P index had risen for 11 of the prior 14 sessions, pushing it above 2,000 for the previous two days. However, recent daily moves have been slight and trading volume has been among the lightest of the year.Wall Street loses ground on Ukraine worry 0 0

Be Informed. Read The Every Da y. WEATHER/STATE NEWS TALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) A political committee linked with California tycoon Tom Steyer unleashed its fifth television ad attacking Republican Gov. Rick Scott this week. Steyer has pledged to spend plenty of green $50 million in seven states, including $10 million in Florida targeting climate-change skeptics like Scott. When asked about global warming recently, Scott told reporters: Im not a scientist. Steyer and enviros are hoping to make global warming a wedge issue in the November elections, something that could give Democratic nominee Charlie Crist a boost. One ad links the governor to Duke Energy Florida customers being forced to pay higher fees to underwrite a never-built nuclear power plant. The Republican Party of Florida countered with its own ad accusing Crist of signing the nuclear cost recovery law, but Jeb Bush was actually governor when the 2006 law went into effect. The latest attack highlights stories by the Tampa Bay Times revealing a secret hunting trip Scott took last year to King Ranch in Texas. Scott later appointed Mitch Hutchcraft to a spot on the board over seeing the Everglades restoration project. Hutchcraft works for King Ranch, a major player in Floridas citrus and sugar industries. What was Rick Scott really hunting for in Texas? Campaign cash from the sugar industry, a voiceover says while a rifle tar gets and blasts a stack of money. The same industry that got a massive bailout from Rick Scott, sticking taxpayers with the bill for cleaning up Big Sugars water pollution. Rick Scott: sweet deals for the powerful few not you. Scott and supporters have taken nearly $750,000 in campaign contributions from Big Sugar, the ad proclaims. The ads are paid for by NextGen Climate Action Committee Florida, which has thus far collected more than $1.8 million in contributions, almost exclusively from other committees affiliated with Steyer, a hedge-fund manager and philanthropist. The spots dont mention Crist, who, as Floridas Republican governor from 2007 to 2011, pushed policies aimed at reducing greenhouse-gas emissions. After taking office, Crist convened a two-day energy summit in Miami, attended by then-California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The event earned private rebukes from Republicans. Crist himself was once the sweetheart of Big Sugar. As gover nor, he struck a deal with U.S. Sugar to pay $1.75 billion to pur chase land considered critical to cleaning up the troubled Glades. As the states economy tanked, so did the deal. In the end, the state purchased just 73,000 acres a fraction of the original 187,000acre plan for about $500 million.Global warming heats up governors race MIAMI (Reuters) The U.S. government pared back the number of reef-building coral species it was considering to label as threatened from 66 to 20 this week, prompting criticism from conservationists. Environmentalists urged the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on Thursday to extend the protection to all threatened marine species. We are concerned with NOAAs unwillingness to acknowledge the widespread threats to the coral species not receiving protections, said Bethany Cotton, wildlife program director for environmental advocacy group WildEarth Guardians. NOAA was considering 66 coral species when it embarked on its study two years ago. On Wednesday it announced its decision, adding the 20 species to two staghorn and elkhorn that were listed as threatened in 2006. Of the new species, ve are found in the Caribbean, including pillar coral and rough cactus coral, and 15 in the Indo-Pacic. A U.N.-backed study warned earlier this year that most reefs in the Caribbean could vanish in the next two decades, hit by the loss of sh and sea urchins that eat coral-smothering algae. NOAA said it considered wide-ranging public comments as part of the rulemaking process. The nal decision is a result of the most extensive rulemaking ever undertaken by NOAA, Eileen Sobeck, assistant administrator for NOAA Fisheries, said in a statement. The amount of scientic information sought, obtained and analyzed was unprecedented. Coral is a stationary animal that slowly grows on sea oors over tens and even hundreds of years. Coral reefs are nurseries for many types of sh, and they also they help protect coasts from storms and tsuna mis, as well as attracting tourists. NOAA was petitioned in 2009 by the Center for Biological Diversity to list 83 of what it said were the most vulnerable coral species found in U.S. waters as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act. The U.S. agency considered 66 of those species for the protected status. Miyoko Sakashita, the Centers oceans director, said getting 20 species listed on Wednesday was great news, but also a bittersweet victory. This is a wake-up call that our amazing coral reefs are dying and need federal protection, Sakashita said. But theres hope for saving corals and many other ocean animals if we make rapid cuts in greenhouse gas pollution to stop global warming and ocean acidication.US lists 20 corals as threatened; activists want more \ mart/ MovesSUNItNEWSPAPERS

The Pirates will participate as an independent this spring, which is mandatory for schools playing a sport for the rst time, and be placed into a district next season. Joanne Parker, who started the Port Charlotte girls lacrosse club in 2012, was hired as the varsity girls coach. Vernon offered the varsity boys coaching position to Don Hallenback, who started the boys club in the mid-2000s, but said Hallenback declined because he is more focused on building a youth program. Both clubs succeeded in drawing a signicant number of students in recent years, which led Vernon to push for inclusion in the FHSAA. He received approval from the school board in late May.

IN TODAYS PAPER The Suns 48-page standalone football preview section covering preps, pros and college. PORT CHARLOTTE Jared Sandberg has spent a lot of the second half of the season talking about the impact relievers Zach Cooper and Colton Reavis have made on the Charlotte Stone Crabs bullpen. Since they joined the team in late-June and mid-July, respectively, the hard-throwing duo has provided the late-inning power arms the Stone Crabs didnt have in the rst half of the season, combining to convert 14 saves over the past six weeks. Thats what makes the Stone Crabs last two losses hurt all the more. Twenty-four hours after Reavis blew a save in a loss to the St. Lucie Mets, Cooper did the same as the Bradenton Marauders came from behind to steal a 5-3 victory at Charlotte Sports Park.

Hardy blooped an RBI single to short right eld in the seventh inning that gave the Baltimore Orioles a 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night. The Orioles (76-56) stretched their American League East lead over the Yankees (69-63) to seven games with 30 to play. Detroit beat New York 3-2 earlier in the day. Baltimore started the winning rally after right-hander Kirby Yates (0-2) got the rst two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning. Left elder Nelson Cruz lined a double to left eld before the Rays (65-69) intentionally walked third baseman Chris Davis. Hardy, the shortstop, followed with a soft y ball that landed just in front of charging right elder Kevin Kiermaier. He looked to throw home but momentarily bobbled the ball and Cruz scored easily to give Baltimore a 5-4 lead. Andrew Miller (4-5) threw 1 23 perfect innings of relief and got the win. Zach Britton replaced him in the ninth inning and locked up his 29th save. Orioles starter Bud Norris recovered from a two-run, 34-pitch rst inning to last six innings and give up four runs.

Both teams leaned almost exclusively on their reserves in the exhibition nale, evaluating position battles as they round out their rosters and hoping to avoid injuries in the nal hurdle before the regular season begins. To that end, the Redskins (3-1) put the game in the hands of third-string quarterback Colt McCoy, with starter Robert Grifn III and backup Kirk Cousins on the sideline. McCoy nished 22 of 29 with 321 yards and two touchdowns as Washingtons reserves came out on top against Tampa Bays backups. McCoy and running back Lache Seastrunk hooked up for an 80-yard touchdown pass with 7:27 remaining in the third quarter, the biggest play of the game. Washington running back Silas Redd punctuated a 79-yard game with a 1-yard touchdown with 4:07 left in the game. The Buccaneers (1-3) managed their lone touchdown with 3:51 left in the third quarter, when third-string quarterback Mike Kafka found receiver Solomon Patton for a 25-yard scoring strike.

World number one Novak Djokovic barely worked up a good sweat on another sizzling day at the U.S. Open as he strolled past Paul-Henri Mathieu 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 and into the third round of the years nal grand slam on Thursday. Djokovic, who has reached the Flushing Meadows nal each of the last four years and won it all in 2011, needed just 88 minutes to dismiss the veteran Frenchman on a gusty Arthur Ashe Stadium court. The Wimbledon champion broke Mathieu to open the match and never eased off the gas as he swept through the last seven games to clinch an emphatic win. I have nothing to complain about, I wanted to get my job done as quick as possible, said Djokovic. I dont feel like I need to play long matches to get into the groove. I mean, I feel that Im hitting the ball very well. Second match even better than the rst one. Under the circumstances I think I came up with a very good perfor mance. Stayed mentally tough and did not allow myself to get frustrated because of the wind and conditions that were obviously very tough for both of us. Its been a smooth start to U.S. Open for Djokovic, who opened his campaign with an equally dominant display as he eased past Argentine Diego Schwartzman in straight sets. But things should get tougher in the third round where the Serb will run into big-hitting American Sam Querrey, who advanced with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 win over 28th seed Guillermo GarciaLopez of Spain. On the womens side, former world number one Ana Ivanovic was upset 7-5, 6-4 by 42ndranked Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic in the second round of the U.S. Open. Pliskova, 22, took advantage of a slew of miscues from the eighth-seeded Serb during an 80-minute match in Louis Armstrong Stadium to clinch her most successful grand slam appearance. Ivanovic, 26, double-faulted seven times and committed 29 unforced errors as she had trouble handling the heavy, at groundstrokes from the Czech. Its denitely my best match this year, said Pliskova, who has yet to win on the WTA Tour but who has twice been a runner-up this year. I didnt have that much strategy. I just went and played my game. I want to enjoy myself and I did it. Pliskova will meet either 29th seed Casey Dellacqua of Australia or Chinas Wang Qiang in the third round.Djokovic advances with easeBY REUTERS TENNIS: U.S. OpenIvankovic bounced by No. 42-ranked Pliskova | TENNIS SCOREBOARD U.S. OpenAt Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, New York, NY Purse: us$18,102,000 Surface: Hard (outside) SinglesWOMENEkaterina Makarova (Russia) beat Polona Hercog (Slovenia) 6-1 6-2 Kaia Kanepi (Estonia) beat 24-Samantha Stosur (Australia) 3-6 6-3 7-6(8) Aleksandra Krunic (Serbia) beat 27-Madi son Keys (U.S.) 7-6(4) 2-6 7-5 3-Petra Kvitova (Czech Republic) beat Petra Cetkovska (Czech Republic) 6-4 6-2 15-Carla Suarez Navarro (Spain) beat Coco Vandeweghe (U.S.) 6-3 6-3 Nicole Gibbs (U.S.) beat 23-Anastasia Pavly uchenkova (Russia) 6-4 6-7(6) 6-3 30-Barbora Zahlavova Strycova (Czech Re public) beat Monica Niculescu (Romania) 4-6 6-4 6-2 Elena Vesnina (Russia) beat Marina Erakovic (New Zealand) 7-5 2-6 6-4 Varvara Lepchenko (U.S.) beat Mona Barth el (Germany) 6-4 6-0 1-Serena Williams (U.S.) beat Vania King (U.S.) 6-1 6-0 16-Victoria Azarenka (Belarus) beat Christi na Mchale (U.S.) 6-3 6-2 29-Casey Dellacqua (Australia) beat Wang Qiang (China) 4-6 6-4 6-2 Karolina Pliskova (Czech Republic) beat 8-Ana Ivanovic (Serbia) 7-5 6-4 11-Flavia Pennetta (Italy) beat Shelby Rogers (U.S.) 6-4 6-3MENNovak Djokovic (1), Serbia, def.

NASCAR champion Tony Stewart will return to racing this weekend at the Atlanta Motor Speedway for the rst time since he struck and killed a young racer at a dirt track in New York earlier this month, his team said on Thursday. The three-time champion has missed three races since the Aug. 9 accident in which Stewart struck and killed 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr. during a non-NASCAR sprint car race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park in upstate New York. The results of the investigation into the crash are pending, but authorities said early in the probe that they had found no evidence of criminal behavior by Stewart. Stewart, who was grief-stricken by the death, will also make his rst appearance before the media on Friday, the Stewart-Haas racing team said in a statement. In a separate statement, NASCAR said Stewart had received all necessary clearances required to return to racing this weekend. NASCAR has remained in constant contact with his race team, and we will stay very close to this situation as Stewart returns to competition, said NASCAR executive vice-president Steve ODonnell. Despite being one of auto racings top drivers, Stewart would often compete in non-NASCAR races as he did at Canandaigua, a dimly lit track about an hours drive west of Syracuse. Stewart and Ward bumped cars during the race and the collision sent Ward into an outside retaining wall. During the ensuing caution period, Ward jumped out of his car in an apparent attempt to confront the 43-year-old Stewart, who remained in the race. When Stewart came around on the next lap, Ward, while in the middle of the track, pointed at Stewart as he came around on the next lap. As Stewart approached Ward, his car appeared to shtail, striking Ward and throwing him some 50 feet. Ward was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. A week after the accident, NASCAR instituted a rule that makes drivers remain in their cars until a track safety ofcial tells them to exit. If the car is on re or lled with smoke, drivers can leave their cars immediately.Stewart to race this weekend AUTO RACING: Tony StewartHis rst appearance since fatal accidentBY REUTERS | GOLF SCOREBOARDLPGA TourPORTLAND CLASSIC At Columbia Edgewater Country Club Portland, Ore.

The Sun /Friday, August 29, 2014 SP Page 3 year. But besides it being his regular-season debut at Charlotte, hell be playing against a team largely populated with his teammates from last season. Its also not just any other game for North Port quarterback Christian Van Der Veer. It will be the juniors rst varsity start. Van Der Veer won a competition with Charlotte transfer Mike Innello to claim the job. It was a job that came open when Simms transferred to Charlotte in July, meaning that Van Der Veer would need to catch on fast over the summer. It was put on me real quick, Van Der Veer said.I wasnt really getting any reps (in the spring). Ive played quar terback before, but its been quite a while, two or three years. The Booker (preseason) game was the rst chance Ive had to play quarterback in three years. Once after the rst drive, I got my condence back and felt good. Simms is playing a little bit of catchup as well at Charlotte. Even though he started at North Port last season he passed for 1,926 yards and 16 touchdowns he still had to learn the Tarpons Wing-T system, which can be complex. So far, Tarpons coach Binky Waldrop isnt worried. Hes picked up on things really fast, Waldrop said. Hes got a bit of learning to do, but its amazing how hes progressed with everything. Simms is still working on linking up with his receivers chemistry between a quarterback and his targets can be elusive. I think (like) a majority of stuff, its going to get better being together in practice, Simms said. I just have to gure out the different abilities for the different receivers, in case Im audibling to something. Van Der Veer needs to get to work on some of that. Detwiler said he has condence in Innello, if or when he needs to turn to him. Theyre both going to do well in what we do, Detwiler said. We preached the whole, one injury, next ones up (philosophy). He also said that while Innello could enter the quarterback picture later, he wouldnt go with a two-quarterback system. Once you tag your quarterback, youve got a quarterback, he said. Unless something falls apart, (Van Der Veer is) the guy were going to roll with.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comSEASONFROM PAGE 1 | TONIGHTS GAMESLAKE REGION AT DESOTO COUNTY2013 RECORDS: Lake Region 4-6; DeSoto County 2-8. WHEN: 7 p.m. WHERE: Bulldog Stadium, Arcadia LAST WEEK: Lake Region lost to Fort Meade 21-7; DeSoto County lost to Port Charlotte 33-6. TALKING POINTS: The Thunder won a thriller between the two teams last season, scoring the winning touchdown with 16 seconds left. QB Jordan Williams led Lake Region in its preseason classic with 116 rushing yards. LB Emmanuel Bienaime is a player to watch on the Thunders defense. QB Reggie Jones led DeSoto County with 50 rushing yards against Port Charlotte and is a bigger threat to run than throw. Bulldogs K Cesar Barajas booted a 40-yard field goal against the Pirates.NORTH PORT AT CHARLOTTE2013 RECORDS: North Port 3-6, Charlotte 6-5. WHEN: 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Tarpon Stadium, Punta Gorda LAST WEEK: North Port lost to Booker 20-7; Charlotte defeated Bayshore 49-7. TALKING POINTS: North Port could have some issues up front. The Tornadoes had success rushing the ends, where the Tarpons Ty Tyler will be tonight. The Bobcats allowed 196 rushing yards last week. Brandon Caster was North Ports most effective offensive weapon last week with six catches for 60 yards. Charlottes defense limited Bayshore to 68 yards and four first downs. Tyler scored twice against the Bruins, once on a punt return, once on an interception. Elijah Mack led the Tarpons on the ground with 65 rushing yards.PALMETTO AT VENICE2013 RECORDS: Palmetto 5-6; Venice 8-3 WHEN: 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Powell-Davis Stadium, Venice LAST WEEK: Palmetto defeated Sarasota-Riverview 56-14; Venice defeated Southeast 49-7. TALKING POINTS: Junior QB Jack Allison is the focal point of the Tigers attack. He has already committed to Miami. Allison might have a Division I target in Clevon Howard, who already has an offer from UConn. The Indians are going with freshman Bryce Carpenter at quarterback. He rushed for 64 yards and a touchdown last week but only completed 6 of 15 passes for 77 yards (and a touchdown). The Indians are loaded on both sides of the line. PORT CHARLOTTE AT LEMON BAYRECORDS: Port Charlotte 10-2, Lemon Bay 5-4. WHEN: 7 p.m. WHERE: Veterans Stadium, Englewood LAST WEEK: Port Charlotte defeated DeSoto County 33-6; Lemon Bays game at Barron Collier was canceled due to lightning. TALKING POINTS: Port Charlotte will be paced by senior QB Anthony Stephens, who rushed for 193 yards and a touchdown last week. He also threw two touchdowns. Finding a supplemental rushing attack will be key for the Pirates, who also will run junior Brennan Norus and seniors Keon Suber and Grady Wells. Lemon Bay will likely start junior Jeremy Snook at quarterback, but sophomore Victor Mellor might also see time there. Brian McGill will be counted on to lead a linebacking corps that lost Josh Schulte to graduation. Rob Shore is to generate funding to acquire the necessary jerseys and equipment. Hes applied for grants from U.S. Lacrosse and Southwest Florida Youth Lacrosse, and estimates that it will cost between $20-23,000 to get the programs everything they need. Were looking at some different fundraisers, anything from a casino night, a golf tournament, something along those lines, Vernon said. Were gonna discuss that in a meeting on Sept. 8. That gure could increase if the FHSAA chooses to follow through with a new rule requiring girls to wear protective headgear. The rule, which has not been adopted by any other state in the country, has been met with criticism from many coaches, including Parker, who fears that the introduction of helmets will make the game more violent. The problem right now is that I cant even estimate a price because theyre trying to mandate a product that doesnt exist, Vernon said. Theres no soft headwear for girls lacrosse made by any company right now. But no matter what, were gonna (go varsity). I wont let money be the reason (why we dont).Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or PAGE 1 Rays third baseman Evan Longoria homered as part of a two-RBI effort, but it wasnt enough as the Orioles won for the third time in the fourgame series. The Rays took a rst-inning lead for the third straight game. Center elder Desmond Jennings led off with a double and later scored on a sacrice y by left elder Matt Joyce. Longoria followed Joyce with a solo homer to give the Rays a 2-0 lead. The Orioles answered in the bottom of the rst. First baseman Steve Pearce extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a one-out solo homer. Center elder Adam Jones and Cruz followed with singles. Jones moved to third on the Cruz hit, and the two pulled off a double steal that tied the score. The Jones steal of home was Baltimores rst since June 14, 2009. Hellickson needed 30 pitches to get through the 39-minute rst inning -after Norris threw 34. Longoria gave the Rays the lead again with his fth-inning sacrice y. Second baseman Ben Zobrist and Joyce started the rally with back-toback one-out singles. Longoria then drove in Zobrist for a 3-2 lead. First baseman James Loney followed by slicing a double to left that scored Joyce to make it 4-2. The Orioles tied it in the bottom of the fth. They loaded the bases with none out, and left-hander Jeff Beliveau replaced Hellickson. Beliveau got one out before Davis grounded to Loney at rst and the Rays tried for an inning-ending double play. However, shortstop Yunel Escobars return throw sailed over Loney at rst and two Orioles scored to tie it at 4. NOTES: The Orioles recalled IF Jimmy Paredes from Triple-A Norfolk before Thursdays game. He was hitting .258 in 32 games playing both second and third with Norfolk since Baltimore got him from the Royals on July 24. Paredes gives the Orioles some extra depth on the bench and lls the spot of RHP Kevin Gausman, sent out in a roster shufe move Wednesday night. ... Baltimores starting time for its Sept. 14 homer game with the Yankees has been shifted to 8:05 p.m. ET so ESPN can televise it. ...

Plus, his 1.50 ERA this month is even with teammate and RHP Alex Cobb for second best in baseball behind Baltimore RHP Chris Tillman (1.26). ...

PREP VOLLEYBALL: North Port 3, DeSoto County 1Davidson sparks BobcatsNORTH PORT As is often the case early in the season, the winner of North Port High Schools match against DeSoto County fell to whichever team made less mistakes. The Bobcats corrected at just the right time Thursday night to remain undefeated with a 23-25, 25-19, 25-14, 27-25 victory. Im not going to make excuses, North Port coach Becky Halbert said. They have it in them to do better, they just need to come in and stay focused every game, not just a big game. Both teams had plenty of unforced errors. The Bobcats were plagued by them in the rst game, quickly losing a 19-10 advantage after seven misdirected kills and four DeSoto County aces. The Bulldogs (1-1) went on a 15-4 run, capped by an 8-0 nishing stretch to take early control. North Port (2-0) led 16-10 in the second game and let DeSoto County back to within 22-19 thanks to six serving errors. Alexis Mootz and Samantha Tennant managed to hold off the hungry Bulldogs with consecutive kills to tie the match, but neither coach was happy. They shot themselves in the foot with some bad serves, which kept us in the ballgame, DeSoto County coach Laura White said. But we struggled with the defensive play, and were still trying to nd some front-row offense. Halbert was upset enough to force her team to run between the second and third games, one windsprint for every missed serve. More, she said, than her Bobcats miss in most matches combined. The punishment paid off as the Bobcats roared to a 14-3 lead in the third game. Eight of those points came off errors charged to the Bulldogs, who could not recover before suffering an 11-point defeat. Game 4 sent both teams back to square one. There were 11 lead changes and 12 ties, with DeSoto County relentlessly digging up each North Port attack. Trailing 19-18, senior Aspen Davidson had had enough. The Bobcats outside hitter notched six of her teams nal nine points on ve kills and an ace, sending consecutive balls rocketing down in Bulldogs territory just after her net serve stopped a run to keep North Port red up. As was the nights theme, the match point was decided when an attack went out of bounds. Davidson led the Bobcats with 13 kills, and Bethany Bonville led the Bulldogs with 11 and added 3 aces.By DAWN KLEMISHSUN CORRESPONDENTNorth Port overcomes errors, downs DeSoto County UP NEXTDeSoto County: vs. Port Charlotte, Tuesday, 7:30 p.m. North Port: vs. Venice, Wednesday, 6 p.m.PUNTA GORDA The Charlotte High School swimming and diving teams split a dual meet with Bishop Verot in the season opener on Thursday at South County Regional Park.

New York Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka, who is trying to work his way back from a partially torn UCL in his right elbow, threw 49 pitches in a simulated game and reported no issues. The Yankees are optimistic that Tanaka can return to help them in the pennant race in September. Instead of opting for Tommy John surgery, Tanaka decided to rehab his elbow. According to USA Today, Tanaka used all of his pitches without any discomfort. He has been sidelined since July 8. I dont see anything to believe he wont take the next step, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. He was good. He threw all of his pitches. I didnt see him favoring any thing, and thats a good sign. It was a good step in the right direction.Tanaka feels no pain in simulated game MLB NOTEBOOKBY THE SPORTS XCHANGE MARAUDERS 5, STONE CRABS 3 HITTER OF THE GAME Jacob Stallings, Marauders: The catcher played a big part in Bradentons come-from-behind win, going 2 for 4 with an RBI double in the fifth and a solo home run in the ninth. PITCHER OF THE GAME Jaime Schultz, Stone Crabs: The right-hander outdueled FSL Pitcher of the Year Tyler Glasnow his final start of the season, giving up just one run on three hits and two walks while striking out seven over five innings. KEY INNING Ninth: Zach Cooper blew his third save of the season for the Stone Crabs, giving up three runs on three hits and two walks as the Marauders turned a one-run deficit into a two-run lead. QUOTE OF THE DAY Cooper: I just couldnt get the ball down and couldnt throw strikes. From there, when you dont do that, you get hit around a little bit. I struggled a little bit today.

I take pride in being able to know that when I come into a game, or even Colton comes into a game, that were going to win that game. So to do that tonight is tough. Bradenton third baseman Eric Wood drew a walk off Cooper to lead off the ninth, and Justin Howard followed with a game-tying RBI triple into the right eld corner. Max Moroff put the Marauders ahead with an RBI single, and, after Moroff was caught stealing, catcher Jacob Stalling extended the lead to two with a solo home run to left. Theyve been good for the past couple of weeks, almost a good month now, so its tough to see, Sandberg said of Cooper and Reavis. But theyve had fantastic seasons, theyve grown a lot since theyve been here, theyve learned a lot about how to pitch at the back-end of the ballgame, and they denitely have the stuff to compete. Stone Crabs righthander Jaime Schultz outdueled Pittsburgh Pirates No. 3 prospect and Florida State Pitcher of the Year Tyler Glasnow to start the game, no-hitting the Marauders through the rst 313 and giving up one run on three hits and two walks while striking out seven over ve innings in his nal start of the regular season. I felt pretty comfortable, Schultz said. Today it was just getting people out early. Guys were making plays behind me, so I felt comfortable throwing any pitch. I felt like the defense would support me, and thats what happened. Marty Gantt singled and scored on a Granden Goetzman single and an error by Walker Gourley to put the Crabs up 1-0 in the second. Charlotte third baseman Tyler Goeddel knocked a two-run, fourth-inning home run off the boardwalk in left-center eld as the Crabs took a 3-0 lead. But those would prove to be all the runs the Stone Crabs would score. The Marauders offense scratched across runs in the fth and sixth innings before tagging Cooper for three in the ninth, and Glasnow and the bullpen limited Charlotte to just two baserunners over the nal ve frames. Weve been playing good baseball, so theres still a lot to play for, per sonally or as a team. Even though were not able to make the playoffs, Cooper said. I know (the Marauders) are ghting for a playoff spot, too, so we can be a little bit of a spoiler. So it is tough. We still want to nish the year strong.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or PAGE 1 Walk-off hit boosts Tigers past YankeesBY THE SPORTS XCHANGEDETROIT Alex Avila singled in the game-winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning as host Detroit took the rubber game of a three-game series against the New York Yankees. After Phil Coke (2-2) struck out Brian McCann with runners on the cor ners to end the top of the ninth, Victor Martinez led off the bottom half with a line-drive double into the right-eld corner against Shawn Kelley (2-5). J.D. Martinez walked before Kelley recorded a pair of strikeouts, but Avila lined a shot to the fence in right to plate pinch runner Bryan Holaday with the decisive run. Avila added a sacrice y and Rajai Davis had an RBI single for the Tigers, who pulled into a tie with Seattle for the second wild card in the American League and to within two games of rst-place Kansas City in the AL Central. Giants 4, Rockies 1: In San Francisco, Yusmeiro Petit set a majorleague record for consecutive batters retired while pitching San Francisco over Colorado. The Giants third straight win allowed them to win the series 3-1 and move within 4 1/2 games of the idle Los Angeles Dodgers atop the National League West. Petit (4-3), promoted to the starting rotation earlier this week to fill the spot vacated by demoted Tim Lincecum, limited Colorado to one run and four hits in six innings. Making his seventh start of the year, he struck out a season-high nine and did not walk a batter. Reds 7, Cubs 2: In Cincinnati, the Reds stole second base six times in the first four innings and four were turned into runs during a win against Chicago. Zack Cozart had three hits and two stolen bases, and Todd Frazier had two hits, two RBIs and two stolen bases, leading the Reds to their third win in their last four games. Billy Hamilton and Kristopher Negron each had one steal to help the Reds finish 4-3 on the home stand. Jake Arrieta (7-5) had allowed three runs or fewer in 14 of his last 15 starts, but was tagged for six runs on six hits and four walks while matching a season low by working only four innings. Jorge Soler, who became the first Cub since Starlin Castro in 2010 to homer in his first career at-bat in Wednesdays loss, singled in Castro to break up the shutout in the ninth inning. Braves 6, Mets 1: In New York, Mike Minor carried a shutout into the eighth inning and Emilio Bonifacio collected four hits as visiting Atlanta won the rubber match of a three-game series, keeping pace in the National League wild-card race. Minor (6-8) led the way as the Braves capped a 6-4 road trip, allowing one run on four hits with no walks and five strikeouts in seven-plus innings, and added two hits, a RBI and a run scored at the plate. Bonifacio went 4-for-5 with a triple and a pair of RBIs as Atlanta remained 1 games behind San Francisco for the final NL wild-card spot and moved within six games of idle Washington in the NL East.

Potentially, Sarkisian said Thursday after practice when asked if Shaw could return to the team. Sure.

COLUMBIA, S.C. No Johnny Football, no problem. Sophomore Kenny Hill showed solid command of the Texas A&M juggernaut offensive attack and then some in the season opener Thursday night. Hill threw for a school-record 511 yards and directed the offense efciently in the No. 21 Aggies 52-28 dismantling of No. 9 South Carolina at Williams-Brice Stadium. Hill, who made his rst career start, didnt seem fazed by the Gamecocks 18-game home winning streak or the 82,847 fans in attendance. His nal passing numbers (44-for60, three touchdowns, no interceptions) were greater than those former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel accomplished in his two years as a starter. The Aggies amassed 680 yards of total offense, which ranks 11th most all-time in school history. The 511 yards were the most ever against the Gamecocks. Texas A&Ms point total was the highest allowed by South Carolina since a 56-17 loss to Auburn in the 2010 SEC championship game. The Aggies scored on ve of their rst six possessions. The drives covered 67, 75, 85, 75 and 80 yards, and none lasted more than 4:40 as Texas A&M opened a 31-14 halftime lead. Hill nished the rst half 27-for-35 for 299 yards and two touchdowns -3 yards to wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones and 14 yards to wide receiver Edward Pope. Running back Tra Carson added touchdown runs of 1 yard and 2 yards for the Aggies, and kicker Josh Lambo connected on a 33-yard eld goal. Texas A&M nished the half with 393 yards of total offense.

Page 6 SP The Sun /Friday, August 29, 2014 NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced a dramatic new domestic violence policy for the league Thursday, admitting I didnt get it right with Ray Rice. The measures were announced in a letter to all team owners and come after widespread criticism and a social media restorm that Goodell absorbed following his handling of discipline for the Baltimore Ravens running back. A rst offense under the new domestic violence policy calls for a six-game suspension, while a second offense would result in a lifetime ban. The two-game suspension for Rice left many with the impression that the NFL did not take domestic violence seriously as a crime. Gordon eyes CFL: Suspended wide receiver Josh Gordon wants to play football, even if that means prying his way into the Canadian Football League. However, the NFLs leading receiver in 2013 needs permission from the Cleveland Browns and clearance from the CFL, which does not test for recreational drugs. Gordons year-long suspension for a third substance-abuse violation was upheld following appeal and announced Wednesday. Peyton fined for taunting: The NFL fined Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning $8,258 for taunting Houston Texans safety D.J. Swearinger, reported. Sources told ESPNs Chris Mortensen that Manning was fined for his actions in last Saturdays preseason game after getting in the face of Swearinger following a 29-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders in the second quarter. During the drive, Swearingers blow to the helmet of Broncos receiver Wes Welker resulted in a concussion for Welker. I accept the fine. Its money well spent, Manning told Mortensen. Peterson to Cowboys?: Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson would like to be a Dallas Cowboy someday. Peterson told Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in a June telephone call he would like to play for the Cowboys at the end of his tenure with the Vikings, according to ESPNs Outside the Lines. Jones confirmed to Outside the Lines that Peterson said he wanted to play for the Cowboys, but hasnt talked to the running back since. Jones also didnt consider the phone call tampering. Jones said he has not contact the Vikings about the conversation. Meet Johnny JamBoogie: Johnny Football has a new nickname called Johnny JamBoogie after showing off his moves in a new Snickers commercial. Manziel may have lost out as the Cleveland Browns starting quarterback to start the season, but he stars as a pitchman for Snickers when he teaches an aerobics class as Johnny JamBoogie. Cowboys safety suspended: Dallas Cowboys safety Jakar Hamilton was suspended four games for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy. Hamilton was recently singled out by head coach Jason Garrett for showing improvement and maturity. Hamilton sat out early in August with a concussion and did not play in last weeks preseason game because of a hamstring injury but was in the running for a spot on the 53-man roster. Bills Watkins reinjures ribs: Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins reaggravated a rib injury during the first quarter of Thursday nights preseason finale against the Detroit Lions. Watkins, who injured his ribs initially on Aug. 16 during an exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, took a hit from Lions linebacker Ashlee Parker after an incomplete pass and did not return to the game.NFL toughens its stance on domestic abuse NFL NOTEBOOKBY THE SPORTS XCHANGE MIAMI GARDENS Marcus Thigpen showed why he might not make the Miami Dolphins. And then he showed why he might. After mufng a chance badly in the rst half, Thigpen had a 32-yard punt return midway through the fourth quarter to set up Miamis go-ahead score, and the Dolphins beat the St. Louis Rams 14-13 on Thursday night in the preseason nale for both teams. The rst half, I felt like I was kind of out of it, Thigpen said. I didnt have a rhythm going and I knew I had to pick it up. The second half, I came out with a different attitude and knew I had to make some plays. Matt Hazel caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Seth Lobato with 6:15 left for the Dolphins, who rallied with two TDs in the nal quarter. Daniel Thomas, making his preseason debut and playing with the belief his spot on the roster wasnt secure, had a 5-yard touchdown run for Miami. Austin Davis threw for 162 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown pass to Austin Pettis, and Greg Zuerlein made a pair of long eld goals for the Rams. Michael Sam was in on six tackles for the Rams, and Ethan Westbrooks had a sack for St. Louis. Theyre among the candidates for one of the nal spots on St. Louis defensive line, a particularly deep position for the Rams. Im very condent that Ill be playing on a NFL roster this fall, said Sam, the NFLs rst openly gay player.

The Chiefs offense, which has struggled throughout the preseason, finally broke through when Tyler Bray found Richard Gordon in the end zone late in the second quarter to make the score 20-7. Quarterback Matt Flynn was 7 of 15 for 102 yards and two touchdowns. His backup, Scott Tolzien, was 12-for-18 for 139 yards and two more scores. Bengals 35, Colts 7: Cincinnati jumped out to a 28-0 lead thanks to a special-team touchdown and a defensive score, and cruised to an easy win over Indianapolis at Paul Brown Stadium. Wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher made a case for making the final roster with a 77-yard punt return for a touchdown early in the third quarter. On the Colts third offensive play after the return, Danieal Manning stepped in front of Chandler Harnish pass and returned it 33 yards for another score. Lions 23, Bills 0: Detroits backups were a lot better than Buffalos starters and the Bills backups in the final preseason game for both teams. Lions quarterback Kellen Moore tossed two touchdown passes and the Detroit defense held the Bills to 108 yards passing and less than 60 on the ground. Browns 33, Bears 13: Brian Hoyer looked sharp and rookie Johnnie Manziel connected for a touchdown as the Cleveland Browns rolled past the Chicago Bears. Hoyer went 6-for-8 and looked confident as he drove the Browns to a first-quarter score. But all eyes were on Manziel as he took over. In the second quarter, he led the Browns on a five-play 80-yard drive, which was capped by a one-yard TD pass to Jim Dray. Ravens 22, Saints 13: Justin Tucker kicked five field goals to lead Baltimore over New Orleans at Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Tuckers kicks came from 36, 27, 45, 32 and 24 yards. Fitz Toussaint and Lorenzo Taliferro combined to rush for more than 200 yards for the Ravens. New Orleans scored its only touchdown on a three-yard pass from Luke McCown to Travaris Cadet. Vikings 19, Titans 3: Rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw a first-quarter touchdown to Adam Thielen and Blair Walsh made four field goals as Minnesota dominated Tennessee at LP Field. Bridgewater started and one-time starter Christian Ponder relieved the first-year player out of Louisville. Eagles 37, Jets 7: Matt Barkley completed 21 passes for 253 yards and one touchdown as Philadelphia defeated New York at Lincoln Financial Field. Barkley also ran for a touchdown as the Eagles scored 24 unanswered points after the Jets scored their only touchdown of the game in the third period. Giants 16, Patriots 13: Josh Browns third field goal of the game, a 37yard field goal with 38 seconds remaining in the game gave New York the win over New England at MetLife Stadium. Brown also was good from 45 yards out Jimmy Garoppolo went the distance for the Patriots and completed 22 of 42 passes including a touchdown strike to Aaron Dobson. Eli Manning got the start for the Giants and went 1-for-4 in limited action.

The Redskins put together an eight-play, 47-yard drive with the clock winding down in the rst quarter and kicker Kai Forbath nailed a 45-yard eld goal with 40 seconds left. The Bucs immediately surrendered the ball back on the following drive, as Redskins linebacker Gabe Miller recovered a fumble by Kafka and returned it 6 yards to Tampa Bays 2-yard line. McCoy promptly connected with receiver Ryan Grant for a 2-yard touchdown pass on the rst play of the second quarter, wrapping up a quick drive that gave Washington a 10-0 lead. The Bucs defense thwarted two other scoring opportunities. Cornerback Keith Lewis picked off McCoy in the end zone with 8:35 remaining in the second quarter, and linebacker Nate Askew intercepted another McCoy pass in the end zone with 18 seconds left in the rst half. NOTES: G Logan Mankins said he was a little surprised by Tuesdays trade that sent him from the New England Patriots to Tampa Bay. The six-time Pro Bowl lineman, who will wear No. 70, acknowledged that the transition to a new locker room and offensive system will be challenging but said he had no concerns about tting in with either. Hopefully, I can help this team do better, Mankins said. ... Redskins backup DT Chris Neild was carted off the eld in the rst quarter with a right knee injury and did not return to the game.

For 24/7 coverage of area sports, follow the Sun online:Blog: Twitter: @SunCoastSports Facebook: Website: RECOGNIZE YOUR QUARTERBACK?With due respect to Tom Jones, its not unusual for prep football teams to turn over their quarterbacks. But to turn them over from the spring game isnt an every day thing. Charlotte (with new starter Brennan Simms), DeSoto County (Reggie Jones), Lemon Bay (Jeremy Snook) and North Port (Christian Van Der Veer) will be going with someone other than their spring game starter. Who would have thought Port Charlottes Anthony Stephens would be the dean of area quarterbacks?AN IMAGINE LAMENTImagine Schools football program went on hiatus after less than a week of workouts this month. But if you want to get nostalgic over the Sharks, you only have to look around to find former Imagine standouts. Stephens is Port Charlottes starting quarterback. Junior fullback Elijah Mack had a monster spring game for Charlotte. Junior wide receiver Stantly Thomas will be a starter for North Port. Those are the headliners, but plenty of former Sharks are in uniform this season.SEE SOME TOP RECRUITSBesides local players such as Charlotte tackle Grant Polk (Virginia) or Port Charlotte safety Malik Vaccaro-Dixon (UCF), there are handful of senior recruits who are on the schedules of area teams. Frostproofs three-star athlete Kaleel Gaines (6-0, 170) has committed to Michigan State and will face DeSoto County on Oct. 10. Island Coast defensive end Marlon Gonzalez (6-4, 255) has committed to South Florida and faces Lemon Bay on Sept. 19. If youre looking past the senior class, North Port travels to Palmetto on Sept. 19: Tigers quarterback Jack Allison (6-5, 181) has committed to Miami.VENICE: A LITMUS TESTVenices matchup against the Tarpons has long been a highlight of the seasons early weeks. But Venice also returns to Port Charlottes schedule. The Pirates make the trip to Powell-Davis Stadium on Sept. 5. The traditional Charlotte-Venice game will come on Sept. 19 in Punta Gorda. We should have a good read on both teams after their clashes with Venice.WHO WILL FILL THE HOLES?Some of the voids are obvious. How will Port Charlotte deal with the loss of its entire defensive line (Ian Bush, Greg Patton and Calvin Collins), which was dominant during the Pirates district title run? Which Tarpons will make up for the graduation of the Reynolds twins, who paced Charlottes passing game? If there is an underrated hole, it comes at DeSoto County, where quarterback Kari Williams passed for 16 touchdowns last season and gave the Bulldogs a passing dimension they dont usually have.PORT CHARLOTTES RANKINGPort Charlotte opens the season ranked No. 8 in Class 7A in the APs prep preseason poll, a ranking that likely has much to do with its terrific season last year. The Pirates looked good in the spring against Hardee and in the preseason against DeSoto County, but coach Jordan Ingman knows that the important thing is the district, where the rankings have no meaning.THE BOBCATS NEW OLD FACELarry Detwiler takes over as the North Port programs third coach in three years. Detwiler is a familiar face: He was a part of original coach Mike Steeles staff as an assistant. Can he be the coach who guides the Bobcats to their first winning season 13 seasons after joining the varsity ranks?DOUBLE YOUR PLEASUREThe areas schedule features a handful of Thursday night games this season, allowing fans to check out a game on consecutive nights. Lemon Bay goes to LaBelle on Sept. 11, then you could check out Port Charlotte (At Mariner), North Port (vs. Palmetto Ridge) or DeSoto County (at East Lee County) the next night. Likewise, North Port at Lakewood Ranch and Port Charlotte at Fort Myers are on a Thursday (Oct. 2). But the real prize is rivalry week, when you could see Hardee at DeSoto County on Thursday (Oct. 30), then see Charlotte at Port Charlotte on Halloween.THE SPACE COAST AWAITSPort Charlotte and Charlotte appear to have the best chances of advancing to the postseason (out of District 7A-11). Those teams will match up against District 7A-12, which was won by Melbourne last season. The Bulldogs are expected to be young, but have a solid offensive line and return running backs Chris Singh and B.J. Daniels.REGIONAL BLOCKBUSTERSIf you are willing to travel a little, Naples travels to Bradenton to meet Manatee on Sept. 12. The Eagles enter the season ranked No. 4 in Class 6A and feature the speedy Tyler Byrd in the back field. Manatee has a new coach, John Booth. Travel a bit farther, and you can see Plant vs. Sickles on Oct. 10. The Tampa powers enter the season ranked No. 6 (Plant in 8A, Sickles in 7A).

NORTH PORT Will Glesges voice took on a proud inection when he started talking about how hed essentially graduated to the center position. Its only two positions over on the offensive line, but it did take the North Port lineman until his senior season to get there. I nally moved all the way to center, Glesge said, beaming. I worked my way from tackle freshman and sophomore year to guard junior year. Now Im running the line. There are many more responsibilities that go with starting in the middle of the line, which is why some coaches like their top linemen to take that spot. Truth be told, Bobcats offensive line coach Brian Jozwiak liked Glesge for the spot since he joined the staff a year ago. Partly it was a move that would help Glesge market himself to colleges, but he knew the team would also benet. Jozwiak, a former rst-round draft pick by the Kansas City Chiefs, knows the value of building your team from the center. I thought it was best to help our team, Jozwiak said. Its the most important position on the front. Hes smart, hes quick, he is a leader and hes got the perfect body for the position. And really to help him play at the next level. Weve seen him play tackle, so he can play diversely across that front. Its the added duties that go along with the move to center that the 6-2, 250-pound Glesge enjoyed the most. Hes always liked having extra responsibility, and this ts the bill. There is a lot, he said. Its up to me that the line is set and everyone knows where theyre going. Basically, the quarterback is standing there, making his reads and its on me to make sure everyone knows who to block. He paused for a moment, remember ing its still a pretty simple game. But its football, he said. You come off the line and you hit somebody. There are technical aspects that go with moving to center as well. Its THE ESSENTIALSHOME: 6400 W.

QUARTERBACKJunior Christian Van Der Veer beat out Charlotte transfer Mike Innello for the starting job after the preseason classic against Booker. North Port coach Larry Detwiler likes the cool Van Der Veer brings, but also said the competition was neck-and-neck and he wouldnt hesistate to turn to Innello, if necessary.RUNNINGBACKSMatt Laroche begins as the starting single back in the spread attack, but a range of options exist. Shaheen Belcarius and Alan Pinckney are options if North Port is looking for a speedy, scat-back type option (as is Laroche). Zefen Wyllie-Bruno and Marquise Faison represent better power options. Laroche showed his stuff in the spring game, breaking an 80-yard touchdown run on his first carry against Lemon Bay.RECEIVERSSenior Teddy Deas and junior Stantly Thomas start out wide: Deas is a returning starter and Thomas was the leading receiver at Imagine School last year. However, Detwiler said depth drops off after Thomas and Deas. Juvens Delise and Brandon Caster will get the first shot at the slot. OFFENSIVE LINEThe quality on the offensive line starts with left tackle Zach Hand and center Will Glesge. Both are seniors. Hand has the size and speed to seal the edge. Glesge was handpicked to take the extra responsibilities at center. Others tabbed to start for the Bobcats are Oliver Barolette (left guard), Devin Gouveia (right guard) and Bryan Borrego (right tackle). Detwiler cautioned hell have to find more depth on the line as the season progresses.DEFENSIVE LINENorth Port will run a 3-5 base defense with Hunter Diaz, River Silva and Clewiston transfer Darius Jackson among the first options on the line. Detwiler is excited about Jackson, who he coined a game-changer. Patrick Swales, who started at Imagine, could find a spot.LINEBACKERSThe outside linebackers are pretty well set with Zach Wheeler on one side and Marquise Faison on the other. The inside spots are somewhat less settled, though Joe McDonald and Roman Morales are among those expected to see playing time. Also expected to get time is Devin Gouveia, who is one of the players on the squad that Detwiler thinks could see two-way action.DEFENSIVEBACKSZefen Wyllie-Bruno will start at safety, but the corner situation is similar to the running backs: There are a lot of players the Bobcats can run in and out. Nick Bauer and Alan Pinkney are the players who will likely start to begin with, but Deas, Thomas and Caster could also see time here.KICKERS PUNTERSDeas, Silva and Austin Kendrick are the players who could get the punting assignment that is still being worked out. Sophomore Michael Magnapera will get the first shot at kickoffs and field goals. Rob Shore all the more important that the players at that position keep proper technique. Glesge can see the difference, too. Its denitely taught me to play a lot lower and get underneath guys, he said. That was the problem I used to have on the outside; I had a tendency to stand up. I was watching lm of my old self and I noticed that. Playing center, you have to be really quick and attentive to every thing. And you have to be explosive and low. But what he does on the eld even with the extra responsibility of his new position is just part what is being asked of Glesge this season. He was one of ve players tabbed by North Port coach Larry Detwiler to be a team leader, someone the team could turn to. It was an easy decision for Detwiler, who also knew Glesge from coaching him as a thrower on the North Port track team for three seasons. This too was a decision made with an eye to his seniors future. He knows exactly where Im coming from, Detwiler said. Hes got an inner personality where some kids will follow him, some wont listen to him. But were trying to create something where everybody will follow him. And he can be something special for someone else in another school someday. So far, the move has paid dividends for Glesge. He likes the responsibility. Its a good feeling knowing the coaches expect you to be a leader on the team, he said. It shows they have respect for you and it makes it even easier to have respect for the coaches. Knowing they see you as a player other players will listen to and respect is a good thing.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comBOBCATSFROM PAGE 4 SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNO North Port High Schools Larry Detweiler is in his rst season as head coach of the Bobcats.PREP FOOTBALLNORTH PORT The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 5 @SunCoastSports A29 at Charlotte 7:30 p.m. The Bobcats havent beaten Charlotte since 2005, so new coach Larry Detwiler gets a test out of the gate.

The subjects ranged from football, to school to life. The steak dinner, prepared by McGills father, Pat, was almost an afterthought on this July evening. Eventually, the conversation found its way to the subject that was really on McGills mind: Mellor, a sophomore, stepping up to become one of Lemon Bay High Schools team leaders. We talked about how Im young, but he believes in me, he thinks Im ready, Mellor said. He wants me to play a lot of quarterback, if not start. He believes in me on defense, he really wants me to come up and be something big for this program his senior year. The words coming from McGill, a senior who has earned that leadership role by starting since he was a sophomore, carried their intended weight. The words grew more important a few days later when last years starting quarterback, Tyler Nelson left the team following an arrest. Mellor started at quarter back for the Manta Rays junior varsity team last season. He earned a varsity letter by playing defense and taking a few snaps at quarterback. Now, he is pencilled in as a starting safety, and coach D.J. Ogilvie said hell share the quarterback role with junior Jeremy Snook. Were planning on using them both at quarterback, some at the slot, some at split end, so that positions gonna be multi-dimensional, Ogilvie said. Playing quarterback requires Mellor or Snook whoever it is on a given play to be vocal and in charge, something that took getting used to for a rising sophomore By ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITERMellor sinks teeth into new role earlier than he anticipatedMELLOR | 7 SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNOLemon Bays Brian McGill enters his third season as a starter on both sides of the ball.

PREP FOOTBALLLEMON BAY The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 7 @SunCoastSports QUARTERBACKThe Manta Rays are without last years starter, Tyler Nelson, due to an arrest last month, and hell be replaced by a duo of underclassmen. Expect to see both junior Jeremy Snook and sophomore Victor Mellor at quarterback, possibly even sharing the position during a single series. Coach D.J. Ogilvie said he will use the athleticism of both players by putting them at multiple offensive positions.RUNNING BACKSLike at quarterback, multiple players will rotate at halfback. The Manta Rays lost leading rusher Dakota Reigle to graduation, but return senior Anthony Marinola from last season. Hell share the load with Brian McGill and Dan Wescott, while Sean Connaghan will be the starting fullback. Bobby Caspolich was expected to be part of the rotation going into the season, but is also off the team following an arrest last month.RECEIVERSSnook and Mellor are still learning the offense, but will benefit from the return of both of last years starting receivers. Nic Mostyn and Josh Kennedy are both seniors with more than a year of varsity experience. Mostyn was one of the leading receivers in the area last season with 27 catches for 414 yards in nine games. Lemon Bays offense doesnt employ tight ends, instead using slot receivers. Mellor will play a lot of slot receiver when Snook is playing quarterback, and Snook could find himself there when Mellor is at QB.OFFENSIVE LINEOgilvie said the first day of practice was like day 10 for the offensive line because all five starters are returning. Jimmy Hinck, Stephen Swierkosz, Sean Porter, Quinn Morrow and Caleb McGarity provide an experienced front to protect the new quarterbacks.DEFENSIVE LINEThe Manta Rays bring back experience on the interior, with seniors Harry Sheppard and Jimmy Hinck back at defensive tackle. Ogilvie said he is thrilled with the depth and will rotate several players on the rest of the line. Expect to see Swierkosz, Joey Adams, Vinny Messina and Jared Connor on the rotating group.LINEBACKERSThe Manta Rays lose a three-year starter in Josh Schulte at inside linebacker, but replace him with another three-year starter: McGill, who moves in from outside linebacker. Connaghan is a returning starter at outside linebacker and senior Nic Mostyn brings some experience as the newest starter at outside linebacker.DEFENSIVE BACKSThe secondary is Lemon Bays most experienced defensive unit. Snook and Kennedy will start at cornerback and Josh Chapman and Mellor will start at safety. All four played significant time at those positions last season and will rotate out with several other two-way players, including Marinola.KICKER PUNTERKennedy will do the kicking and punting for Lemon Bay for the second straight season, allowing Ogilvie to worry more about the offense and defense. SPECIAL TEAMSLike many of the other positions, several players will share the load on kick returns. Ogilvie said Marinola, Chapman, Mellor and McGill will return kickoffs. Chapman and Mellor will be the two punt returners. Zach Millerleading a huddle full of juniors and seniors. But Mellors teammates his brothers as he calls them made it as easy as possible for him. No ones putting me down, no ones being mean, they want to be successful and they want me to lead this team, Mellor said. I denitely think Ive gained a lot more condence, and that comes with being vocal. I denitely think Ive become more noticed, being louder and being a leader. On the other side of the ball, McGill didnt need any help making the transition from outside linebacker to inside linebacker, replacing Josh Schulte as the vocal leader at the middle of the defense. Hell call the formations and motions he sees, a role he played as the starting inside linebacker for the junior varsity his freshman year. McGill will also carry much of the load at running back a position he has seldom played sharing time with Anthony Marinola, Sean Connaghan and Dan Wescott. Ive been shadowing the offense my whole high school career because coach Ogilvie told me one day Im gonna need you here, so be ready. Ive been waiting for that day, McGill said. I never thought it would come, but now that it has, Im ready for it. Lemon Bay returns its entire offensive line and wide reciever unit from last season, as well as eight starters at defense. The Manta Rays won their last four games last season to nish 5-4 and 3-3 in District 5A-11. What we take from last year is those practices those last four weeks were the hardest practices of our lives, McGill said. If we ever feel that practice is getting easy, were not doing the right thing. We need to step it up and the intensity needs to go way up, and I feel like were starting off at that.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or PAGE 6 SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNOLemon Bay sophomore Victor Mellor (No. 7) will see time at quarterback as well as lining up in the slot and split wide this season.

Along with four teammates, he did bear crawls, up-downs and any other punishment assistant coach Richard Koonce could think of. I just missed kind of my time and came late. I had to serve the consequences, Rembert said. It was not really that hard, it was just something to wake me up and tell me not to be late. Like a lesson. Rembert served his pennance as his more-punctual teammates looked on. Hard worker and does what hes asked, remember? But you wouldnt expect much less from a player who has a school legend eyeing him every time he walks through the halls of DeSoto County High School. Every time Rembert passes the school gym, he passes the picture of his uncle Johnny Rembert, a former member of the New England Patriots and a former DeSoto County standout. Hes used to being asked about that, too. Hey, are you related... Sometimes, the question isnt even asked. When quarterback Kari Williams borrowed his jersey two years ago against Cypress Lake, the DeSoto County radio teams wondered on air if there was a relation. Rembert laughs about it.

PREP FOOTBALLDESOTO COUNTY The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 9 @SunCoastSports QUARTERBACKReggie Jones came in as a promising raw talent three years ago, a player who had the potential to go the distance on any play. That potential remains and hes going to be a headache when he gets out of the pocket. That dimension was lacking in the 7-6 victory against Boca Ciega in the spring. He is more of a runner than a thrower.RUNNING BACKSThe lead fullback in the option is senior Zack Beeles, who started getting carries as a freshman. Hard-nosed, he can be tough to bring down. He is a change of pace from speedier options. Dewayne Hearns, Tajahs Jackson or Nirion Washington could see time in the one-back sets and could provide more burst when needed.RECEIVERSJones has intriguing options downfield whether they exist merely to keep defenses honest is another question. Tony Lee and Alfredrick Tyson are the first choices out wide, and Lee showed he is a deep threat last season (9 catches, 232 yards). The slotback/ wingback will have options such as Jackson and Tyson. Both thrive when they get the ball in space.OFFENSIVE LINEStefan Williams (left tackle), Earnest Robinson (left guard), Rashawn Stroman (center), Deitone Turner (right guard) and Chase Higgins (right tackle) form a solid foundation. The biggest concern is finding depth behind the starting five, as all will be needed to play on defense.DEFENSIVE LINEThe 4-4 base defense benefits from the talent up front. Higgins, Turner and Robinson are holdovers. Andre Jones also starts in this unit. Turner is an intriguing size/speed combination, but Egloff has worked to make him more consistent. Hunter Browning and Stroman could see time as rotation guys.LINEBACKERSUsually, this unit forms the heart of the defense thanks to past players such as Troy Kelly or Tre Tyler. While the unit may not have someone like that, the sound group offers two-way players such as Beeles, Williams and Tyson. Keionte Aikens is expected to round out the unit. As with the line, Bulldogs must develop depth to give players a breather.DEFENSIVE BACKSPlaymakers exist with corners Hearns and Lee and safety Jackson. Hearns showed his ability to make plays in the spring game against Boca Ciega, returning an interception for the game-winning touchdown with less than two minutes left. These players have enough speed they should not let many get behind them.KICKER PUNTERStill trying to iron out the kicking and punting chores between Rosario Zavala and Cesar Barajas. Egloff said it was up in the air going into the preseason game. It also has this interesting wrinkle: One is left-footed, one is right-footed, which could make for some interesting onside kicks. Rob Shore walking past his uncles picture every day just serves as a reminder that he knows someone a close relation even made it to the highest level. It means, not pressure, he said. Its just more motivation to get me where I need to go. This years needs mean he will play outside linebacker and defensive end, a move from the inside last year. Thats OK to Rembert. He gures he knows all the linebacker positions anyway. Hes willing to play any position, Egloff said. Thats a super nice thing to have. Hell probably play some stuff on offense, too. Hell be in on every special team since hes not going to want to come out. Remberts versatility allowed him to be shifted. I know he can move, Egloff said of the reasons behind the switch, and some of the depth that were starting to develop inside. He doesnt have the frame one would associate with a linebacker: about 5-foot-10, 165 pounds. But he seems to have gured a way around that, too. Its just technique and speed, Rembert said. I make sure I get to where I need to be before the big guys get there. Youve got to hit them before they hit you. Rembert will be one of the players expected to form a defensive base, along with defensive tackles Deionte Turner and Ernest Robinson and inside linebacker Zack Beeles. But Egloff isnt worried that Rembert will be there when needed. I just think hes a great kid. Hes there every day working out, Egloff said. When you ask him to do something, hes there. Even if its punishment for being a little late.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comREMBERTFROM PAGE 8 SECOND AND TENSCHEDULE2013 RESULTSPOSITION ANALYSIS SUN PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLDeSoto County quarterback Reggie Jones carries against Port Charlotte during the second quarter of the preseason game between the teams in Arcadia.

PREP FOOTBALLPORT CHARLOTTE Page 10 Friday, August 29, 2014 The Sun @SunCoastSports SUN PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLAnthony Stephens dispelled any lingering doubts that he will be a run-only quarterback with his performance against DeSoto County in Port Charlottes preseason game. A fresh scar signals change for StephensPORT CHARLOTTE Anthony Stephens still has the scar below his neck where he broke his collarbone two springs ago. He doesnt think anything of it; its just an injury that has healed, helped him grow. That game at East Lake in December, on the other hand, still hurts. But as his collarbone motivated him to get back onto the eld, the Pirates 49-15 loss to the Eagles in the Region 7A-3 nal is spurring him on. I want to get back to the East Lake game, Stephens said. I want to be back there again. I want my team to work hard enough to get there again. It was a tough hit for Port Charlotte High School, which won its rst district title and its rst two postseason games, something the school had never done. But the high-ying Pirates had never seen a team like East Lake before, and it showed. So many mistakes, Stephens said with a slight shake of the head. What happened when they scored, how the team was feeling after ward the team was down. Thats what made us fall apart, everybody getting down. But Stephens is putting it on himself to erase that memory or put it well in the background. Hell do that from a different position. After breaking into the Pirates last season as a running back, Stephens was shifted to quarterback prior to this season. It wasnt a move Port Charlotte coach Jordan Ingman made lightly.

PREP FOOTBALLPORT CHARLOTTE The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 11 @SunCoastSports QUARTERBACKAnthony Stephens won the battle in the spring, beating senior Paulsin Heitter. At his best, Stephens could be a more explosive version of two-year starter Traige McClary, and he played quarterback at Imagine School two seasons ago. If questions remain, they are with his arm though he seemed to answer that with an 80-yard scoring pass to Heitter in the spring game against Hardee.RUNNINGBACKSPort Charlotte doesnt need a star to have a solid running game: Six backs (including McClary) compiled at least 400 rushing yards last year. That model could be used again: Keon Suber, Brennan Norus and Martin Luther are front-runners to land the lead role. But Heitter could switch inside from receiver. Its all about coach Jordan Ingman finding the hot hand.RECEIVERSThis position isnt about accumulating catches and yards as much as providing a weapon to keep defenses from selling out against the run. The Pirates have three standouts who do that: Heitter (23.3-yard average per catch), Malik VaccaroDixon (19.7) and Serge Jean-Louis. Heitter is a threat to score when he gets into the secondary.OFFENSIVE LINEThey have a good foundation. Chris Sankus (left guard), Keyshawn McLeod (left tackle) and Michael Raymond (right tackle) gained significant playing time last season. Add center Dan Stenseth and right guard Kesden Jarvis to a tight-knit group, and this group should be good at driving defenders off the ball. DEFENSIVE LINELast years defensive front: Ian Bush, Greg Patton and Calvin Collins; must be replaced. Senior Simeon Beckford is the starting point for this rebuilding project. He will be joined by Junior Guerrier up front while Kordell Slater and Noah Bayne will rotate for snaps.LINEBACKERSPort Charlotte is deeper than it appears. Taylor Severson is the only returner to the front seven, but senior Grady Wells earned significant time last season as did junior Aaron Wertz. Andrew Bennett completes the starting group, which looked very active in the spring game. Expect Luther to take a big role at linebacker: He started at the position for DeSoto County two seasons ago.DEFENSIVEBACKSSafeties Vaccaro-Dixon and Christian Coffelletto have started two and 1 seasons, respectively. Vaccaro-Dixon has already committed to Central Florida and owns prototype size and speed for the position. Serge Jean-Louis and Tiyan Bush enter the season as the starters at cornerback. This unit is where the defense really starts.KICKER PUNTERThe Pirates seem to have the special teams players well in hand with Well handing the punting duties. The placekicking role will be split between Andres Hernandez (field goals) and Devin McCormick (kickoffs). Rob Shore as coach. He started every game since weve been here as coaches, Ingman said of McClary. Obviously, theres the unknown (factor) you wonder whats going to happen. Maybe. But Stephens has shown enough to keep the job. We were looking for similar things that Traige had and we found them in Anthony, Ingman said. There was concern about moving Stephens from running back, the position he really wanted and one where he had found a home. Once the plan was explained to the former Imagine School star, he went along with it. I really did want to stay at running back, Stephens said. But if nobody can run the offense as well as I can... He let the sentence hang there. Part of the idea is that in Ingmans spread scheme, the quarterback is just another ball-carrier. McClary ran for 416 yards and a team-high nine touchdowns last season. And according to Ingman, he nished the year as Port Charlottes best running back: Stephens rushed for 577 yards, averaging 7.8 yards per carry. It makes him a much bigger threat, Ingman said. On every play, hes going to touch the football. Anytime youve got the ball in your best athletes hands, thats a good thing. He is a threat to throw, too. In the spring against Hardee, Stephens opened the second half with an 80-yard touchdown pass to Paulsin Heitter, showing off his arm strength. But running the offense is the important thing, and when Stephens had early doubts, he went to McClary for pointers. He said, If the guy is coming to you, pitch the ball, Stephens said, recounting McClarys advice. If youve got an open lane knowing your speed just take it. Theres nothing they can do. Nothing they can do. That sounds like what Ingman might have had in mind.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comSTEPHENSFROM PAGE 10 SUN PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLKeon Suber returns from last years running back corps and is expected to play a larger role this season.

A complete packageGrant Polk and Joey Behling came off the eld laughing and joking after the two players swapped jerseys for Charlotte High Schools team photo day. Polk, a 6-foot-6, 290-pound right tackle, strained the fabric on his borrowed No. 27 shirt, likely knowing he would never be able to get pads into it. Clark Kent probably joked around, too. But Polk isnt going to be asked to be Superman, just hold up his side of the Tarpons line. As it is, Charlotte coach Binky Waldrop knows he has a pretty special kid. Polk has committed to the University of Virginia. He will be the Tarpons rst offensive lineman to commit to a BCS school since Zach Schlundt went to Pittsburgh in 2000. When I would describe him back in the spring during the recruiting process, Id always say hes the complete package, Waldrop said. A great student, a great football player, a great leader. He works hard. Character is off the charts. Polk knows that commitment to Virginia makes him a target for opposing defenders looking to make a name for themselves. Its always been that way. I denitely heard that a lot with players we went up against last year, he said. Thats ne. I dont see too much thats wrong with that. Usually before, it was That kids a monster! or Hes freaking huge! The best part for Polk this season is that hes part of an experienced group on the offensive line that expects to be one of the Tarpons strengths early. Zach Lippel (6-3, 270 pounds) starts at the other tackle.

QUARTERBACKBrennan Simms summer transfer to Charlotte adds an element to the teams offense that wasnt seen in the spring game against Dunbar. Simms has a sound arm, a solid feel for the game and an underrated athleticism once out of the pocket. The question is whether he has the necessary chemistry with his receivers after arriving in July.RUNNINGBACKSThere has been buzz about Elijah Mack since his midseason transfer from Imagine School, and he showed why in the spring game, rushing for 297 yards against Dunbar with a mixture of quickness and power. The Tarpons run a Wing-T that features wingbacks Marquell Platt, Trystan Beasley and DVonte Price; they look faster at wingback than a season ago.RECEIVERSThe Tarpons have promise, though replacing Dwight and Dwayne Reynolds could be tricky, especially with their youth. Sophomores Dee Hicks and Jacob White are expected to start. Hicks was a candidate at quarterback in the spring. GVonte Price will be the tight end, which Charlotte usually uses as a blocker.OFFENSIVE LINEThe one spot the Tarpons came into the season with continuity. Zach Lippel (left tackle), Pat Marlatt (left guard), Cainyn Cooper (center), Travis Matzen (right guard) and Grant Polk (right tackle) will start. Three are returning starters. Lippel and Polk are bookends to create a foundation here.DEFENSIVE LINEThe Tarpons will go with a 3-4 look this season, which is a change to their usual 4-3 set. Chase Comer, Dennis Mathurin and Zach Conn are expected to get the first looks. Mathurin is the only senior among them. Senior Ryan Adams eventually will become part of the mix, but is recovering from a broken wrist.LINEBACKERSCharlotte coach Binky Waldrop expects outside linebackers Ty Tyler and Dakari Brown to be the foundation of the defense, and their size and athleticism should give opponents problems. Both played a big part for the Tarpons last season. Chase Shepard and Chandler Pritchett get the first call inside; both started at times last season. Jobany Nieves can play any of the linebacker spots.DEFENSIVEBACKSMuch of the experience in the unit comes from senior safeties Trystan Beasley and Jakari Mayers. Charlottes cornerbacks look more inexperienced by comparison: Dee Hicks and Maleek Williams will see significant time as sophomores along with junior Tyler Lovett. Though they look green, Hicks started all season for the Tarpons as a freshman.KICKER PUNTERJunior Justin Andrukiewicz is the punter. At kicker, Charlotte can choose from Andrukiewicz, who kicked in the spring game; Austin Roberts, who had the job last season; and Joey Behling, who was the JV kicker last season. Waldrop said he might just go with the hot foot as the season begins. Rob Shore 2013 RESULTSPREP FOOTBALLCHARLOTTE The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 13 @SunCoastSports SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNOJobany Nieves, left, and Chase Shepard participate in a drill during an early morning workout. Both are senior linebackers for the Tarpons. Shepard is expected to start at one of the inside spots in Charlottes 3-4 defense.Travis Matzen and Pat Marlatt in the middle. Early returns have been solid. The line played a big part in fullback Elijah Macks breakout spring game against Dunbar; he rushed for 297 yards and four touchdowns. It amuses Polk to be blocking on the line and see Mack run over a defender. We did our job, but he denitely did his job, Polk said of Macks game against Dunbar. It helps when you both do it. Combine that and you get 300 yards and three or four touchdowns. But the lines play starts with Polk. Hes the leader of the pack, Waldrop admitted. Its been hard work to get this far. Polks athletic career at Charlotte started most visibly on the basketball court three years ago, occasionally starting at center for the Tarpons basketball team. But after a year at Charles D. Owen High School in Asheville, N.C., Polk returned to Charlotte committed to football, something Waldrop said made all the difference. He played strictly defensive line at Owen, but that helped him get an under standing of the defensive side of the ball. It also helped him develop a nasty edge, something coaches crave from linemen. You cant be a nice guy playing defense, Polk said. His time in the weight room also helped. Waldrop highlighted that as a reason for Polks success last season. But its not just size that makes Polk a standout. You always want big bodies on the O line, Waldrop said. But at the same time, they have to be able to perform. You see a lot of big kids where people can get around them pretty easily. For me, its the total deal. Waldrop is enjoying it while he can.

PREP FOOTBALLVENICE Page 14 Friday, August 29, 2014 The Sun @SunCoastSports The Carpenter era dawns for VeniceA new era begins for Venice High School this season: the Bryce Carpenter era. Carpenter, a freshman, takes over as quarterback and will be asked to run an offense that averaged 34 points per game last season. And keep the Indians state playoff qualifying streak alive as well. Our goal as a team is to win the district championship, and my goal is to do everything I can to help us get there, Carpenter said. Its an honor to be selected as the starter for this team, and Im going to come out and work as hard as I can every day. Senior Misho Cemovich started at quarterback during Venices spring drills and spring game, but Carpenter came in during summer camp and worked with the Venice coaching staff, quickly picking up the Indians offense. Venice coach John Peacock made the call to go with Carpenter as his starter about two weeks into fall practice. Bryce has done a great job over the summer and through camp of picking up our offense, Peacock said. We just felt at this time that he gives us the best chance to win right now at that position. Carpenter credited Cemovich willingness to treat him as more than a competitor for the job. Hes been an inspirational person, and hes really helped me along the way for sure, Carpenter said. Carpenter received a scholarship offer from Jacksonville State before taking his rst varsity snap, which doesnt surprise Peacock. We all have condence in Bryce in that hell be able to do the job we ask him to do and hes got some good weapons around him. Thatll make his job a little easier.

PREP FOOTBALLVENICE The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 15 @SunCoastSports familiar faces from the past couple of seasons. Seniors Langston Provitt and Noah Montgomery are the teams starting wide receivers. Provitt is one of the areas most versatile players and will start at cornerback, return kicks and act as the teams wildcat quarterback. Langston is our best football player, Peacock said. Hes going to touch the ball 30 times this year. Were going to get the ball in his hands. Hes a playmaker...the real deal. Other receivers include Jake Macfarlane and Ben Nicholas. Weve got a pretty good, solid receiving core, Peacock said. Cemovich has moved to tight end, where he will share time with sophomore Aaron Hackett. Hes doing an awesome job there and hes made some of the best blocks that Ive seen while Ive been coaching here, Peacock said of Cemovich. That really improves our team a great deal. Junior Malik Bryant and senior Brandon Davis are battling to replace Terry Polk at running back. Polk rushed for a team-record 1,734-yards year and played a big part in the teams passing game. Polk was one of a handful of players on last years team who is playing collegiately this year. Polk is attending Norfolk State. They dont have experience, but they have the tools to be very successful in our system, Peacock said. Theyre both very fast. Malik has a little more wiggle to him, and Brandon is a little faster. Peacock said they have been quick learners. Theyve both been doing a great job and theyll get playing time to start, he said. Theyve picked up everything pretty well so far. Bryant said he been putting in extra work at practice and at home to prepare for the starting role. He said that Polk had a lot of speed and hes been working on improving his speed to get to Polks level. Im just trying to get faster right now so I can help replace that, Bryant said. Terry did some big things last year and Ive got to work on doing the same things.Contact Scott Lockwood at slockwood@ PAGE 14 SUN PHOTO BY JUSTIN FENNELLVenice senior linebacker Ben Chisholm hits fullback Eric Imperante during a recent practice. Venice coach John Peacock said Chisholm has the potential to be one of the best middle linebackers to play for Venice.QUARTERBACKThe Indians selected freshman Bryce Carpenter to lead the way. Coach John Peacock said Carpenter gives the team its best chance to win right now. Senior Misho Cemovich, who started the spring game against Lakeland for Venice, will be the backup.RUNNINGBACKSJunior Malik Bryant and senior Brandon Davis are likely to share carries early. With Davis also starting on the defensive side of the ball more of the load could fall on Bryant as the season goes on. Peacock said both have the tools to be very successful in Venices system. Seniors Eric Imperante and Cemovich will see time at fullback.RECEIVERSThe Indians have a versatile player in senior Langston Provitt, who will start at wideout and return kicks. Senior Noah Montgomery will start at the other spot. The Indians have plenty of depth here with junior Jake Macfarlane and senior Ben Nicholas figuring into the teams plans. Sophomore Andrew Shofner has been tabbed as the starter at tight end since training camp began but could face some stiff competition from Cemovich, who was moved to tight end after losing the quarterback competition to Carpenter. Peacock said that Cemovich has been making some the best blocks hes seen while hes been coaching at Venice.OFFENSIVE LINEThe heart of the offense could be on the line. Its anchored by senior offensive tackle Ty Gauthier, who has committed to the University of Miami. Junior David Reister, who Peacock said has been the big surprise so far in camp, will man the other tackle spot. Senior Kaleb Ward and sophomore Kyle Johnson are the starting guards, while the center spot is still up in the air with senior Sonny OToole and junior Joe Chesmond battling for the position.DEFENSIVE LINEThe interior defensive line is one of the teams strengths, anchored by senior defen sive tackle Alex Hoag, who has committed to Kent State; and junior Jarrod Hewitt, who Peacock called the real deal. The defensive ends will be junior Cade Sleight and senior Sean Shippey. LINEBACKERSSenior Ben Chisholm will patrol the middle of the field. After taking reps at running back in the spring, Chisholm is focusing solely on defense. Senior Anthony Loukas, who has been nursing a knee injury through camp, will man the other inside spot. Montgomery, senior Beau Perkins and Jacob Stubbs have been taking reps at the outside spots, but Peacock said Perkins could end up at linebacker and Montgomery at safety.DEFENSIVEBACKIn addition to Provitt, others in the mix include Davis, Macfarlane, Indiana transfer Michael Clark, senior Joey Morgan, Perkins and junior Sage Lee, who Peacock said had an unbelievable summer. Were going to have a spot for that kid in the field, Peacock said. He does everything we ask him to do and hes worked very hard.KICKER PUNTERPeacock said the Indians kicking game has the potential to be the best its ever been. Sophomore Zach Carr will be the teams kicker, while Carpenter will handle the punting duties. Weve really come a long way from where we were last year, Peacock said. Zach Carr is dependable and accountable for his play, which is nice to see since well finally have someone thats accountable for their play. Bryce has done a great job and its great having an athlete back there. If he happens to be our starting quarterback, itll give us someone back there who can do fakes and not worry about them dropping the snap.

CLEMSON AT GEORGIAAug. 30 5:30 p.m. These teams have a history of playing down-to-the-wire games against each other. With both breaking in new quarterbacks, dont expect it to be as high scoring. The key matchup is Georgias running back, Todd Gurley, against a Tigers defensive front that might be the nations best. The game is great preparation for Georgias SEC opener against South Carolina on Sept. 13 and Clemsons ACC opener against Florida State on Sept. 20.WISCONSIN VS. LSUAug. 30 9 p.m. in Houston The Badgers need to find a quarterback, and they have to replace six of their front seven on defense. They will not see a faster opponent until their bowl. LSU sustained huge losses at the skill positions. Even though the Tigers have rattled off consecutive 10-win seasons and beat SEC champ Auburn by two touchdowns last year, theres uneasiness in Baton Rouge. A win here could help LSU regain its mojo.MICHIGAN STATE AT OREGONSept. 6 6:30 p.m. These opposites will attract eyeballs. Heisman hopeful Marcus Mariota leads an Oregon offense that averaged more than 45 points and 560 yards a game last season against a Spartans defense that held opponents to an average of 13 points and 250 yards. The Ducks defense will be tested by Connor Cook, who passed for more than 300 yards against Ohio State in the Big Ten title game and Stanford in the Rose Bowl.MICHIGAN AT NOTRE DAMESept. 6 7:30 p.m. The series goes on hiatus after this game. The Wolverines upset the Irish last year but lost six of their last eight. Coach Brady Hoke needs a turnaround. New offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier has returning quarterback Devin Gardner. For Notre Dame, quarterbacks Everett Golson is back after being suspended for the 2013 fall semester for academic impropriety. UCLA VS. TEXASSept. 13 8 p.m. in Arlington Everything is trending up in Westwood. Coach Jim Mora already has 19 wins, most in the first two years by a UCLA coach, and he brings back one of the countrys most dangerous QBs: Brett Hundley. First-year coach Charlie Strong is trying to keep Texas fans expectations in check, but the Longhorns might be pretty good. They have issues at quarterbacks, but the defense could keep them in games. This will be a springboard for the winner.GEORGIA AT SOUTH CAROLINASept. 13 3:30 p.m. The Head Ballcoach might just have his best team at South Carolina. Steve Spurriers Gamecocks get an early test at home against Georgia, which also has visions of bigger things. The game will revolve around which running back is the most productive: the Bulldogs Todd Gurley or South Carolinas Mike Davis.MIAMI AT NEBRASKASept. 20 8 p.m. For all those times Tom Osborne lamented the homefield advantage Miami held in those Orange Bowl meetings of the 1980s and s, the Hurricanes go to Lincoln for the first time since 1976. These teams played five games between 1984 and 2002, and four decided national championships. This meeting is important for two programs looking to re-establish them selves in the national hierarchy, but it also will appeal to fans sense of nostalgia.OKLAHOMA VS. TEXASOct. 11 TBD in Dallas Sooners coach Bob Stoops is itching to shove aside a few bad memories in the Red River Rivalry, including last years 36-20 loss ton unranked Texas when the Sooners were ranked No. 12. Its also the Red River Rivalry debut for first-year Texas coach Charlie Strong.OHIO STATE AT MICHIGAN STATENov. 8 8 p.m. The Spartans beat secondranked Ohio State to end the Buckeyes school-record 24-game winning streak last year in the conference title game. With Ohio State quarter back Braxton Miller sidelined this season by injury, Michigan State can no longer lay claim to be the underdogs in this matchup. Meanwhile, the Buck eyes untested quarterbacks will have a full season to grow into the role and Ohio State has been waiting for redemption.AUBURN AT ALABAMANov. 29 TBD They call it the Iron Bowl because the teams feel as if theyve been hit with a bag of hammers after these old acquaintances get together. Auburn quarterbacks Nick Marshall and Alabama tailback T.J. Yeldon figure to get all the attention, but itll be defense will likely decide this one, as always. Two things to remember: This years game is in Tuscaloosa and the Crimson Tides path to this date is among the conferences easiest. COLLEGE FOOTBALLFIRST AND TEN The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 17 @SunCoastSports Its a season of change in college football with the advent of a four-team playoff culminating in a national championship game on Jan. 15 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Starting in mid-October, a panel of 13 experts will begin meeting once a week to determine the four teams who will compete for the national championship in the rst College Football Playoff. Their goal is to choose the four best teams in the nation at the end of the regular season. The College Football Playoff and its selection panel are not all thats new this season. There have been 19 coaching changes in Division I, including Bobby Petrino returning to Louisville after Charlier Strong replaced Mack Brown at Texas. James Franklin left Vanderbilt for Penn Statee, replacing Bill OBrien, who left for the NFLs Houston Texans. Derek Mason, fromerly Stanfords defensive coordinator, replaces Franklin at Vanderbilt. Additional conference realignment has skewed some numbers the Big Ten will have 14 teams, with the addition of Maryland and Rutgers, and the Big 12 will have 10 teams. Meanwhile, the Atlantic Coast Conference expanded to 14 teams by adding Louisville, which left the American Athletic Conference. The American added East Carolina, Tulane and Tulsa and will have 12 teams when Navy comes on board next year. And brace yourself for the inevitable surprises. Every year it seems a team comes out of no where, such as Missouri reaching the SEC championship game (losing to Auburn) and Duke reaching the ACC championship (losing to Florida State, which beat Auburn in the nal BCS national championship game). Fox analyst Charles Davis, a former Tennessee player, offered one team in each of the Power Five league to keep an eye on this season: North Carolina (ACC), Iowa (Big Ten), Texas Tech (Big 12), Southern California (Pac-12) and Mississippi (SEC). On this page are 10 players and 10 games to watch.

If Nebraskas offensive line improves, Abdullah has legitimate 1,800-yard potential. MIKE DAVISRunning back South Carolina He becomes the focal point of the offense after rushing for 1,183 yards with 11 touchdowns. Gamecocks opener offered him a national TV springboard in the Heisman race.MELVIN GORDONRunning back Wisconsin He rushed for 1,609 rushing and 12 TDs, but his production dropped in the seasons second half. He is the unquestioned No. 1 tailback for the Badgers and his explosiveness cant be overstated. An 1,800-yard season seems a legitimate goal.TODD GURLEYRunning back Georgia Fully healthy, this Bulldog 6-foot-1, 226 pounds has his eyes set on a 2,000-yard season and, possibly, a spot in New York. Even with his injury a year ago, the junior has rushed for 2,374 yards and 27 TDs in two seasons.BRETT HUNDLEYQuarterback UCLA Hype might have outstripped the production (3,071 passing yards, 24 passing TDs, 9 Ints., 748 rushing yards, 11 rushing TDs), but he is one of the best quarterbacks in the nation. MYLES JACKLinebacker UCLA As a freshman, he became a wheredid-he-come-from two-way player, rushing for 120 yards in his first game, scoring four TDs the next. But his NFL future is at linebacker, and the Bruins have limited him to that position in camp.MARCUS MARIOTAQuarterback Oregon The junior returns to lead an offense that compiles points and yards like a video game. If he stays healthy, Mariota is one of the nations best dual-threat quarterbacks. He set a school record with 4,380 yards of total offense and accounted for 40 TDs. NICK MARSHALLQuarterback Auburn The seniors chances might be hurt by starting the opener on the bench after being cited for marijuana possession last month. He passed for 1,976 yards, ran for 1,068 and accounted for 26 touchdowns while leading the Tigers to the final BCS national championship game last year.BRYCE PETTYQuarterback Baylor The Bears set an NCAA record averaging 52.4 points per game, and Petty set 17 school records leading Baylor to its first Big 12 title and only BCS bowl. He passed for 4,200 yards and 32 TDs and ran for 14 more. Expect more.JAMEIS WINSTONQuarterback Florida State He won it as a freshman while leading the Seminoles to the national title. But he is far from a lock. Archie Griffin in 1974 and 1975 is the only repeat winner in the 78-year history of the award. Wire Reports


COLLEGE FOOTBALLFLORIDA STATE Page 18 Friday, August 29, 2014 The Sun @SunCoastSports Playing for historyFlorida State quarterback Jameis Winston dominated college football in his rst season as the starting quarterback, nishing a record-setting season with the Heisman Trophy and a national championship. So what can he do for an encore? The redshirt sophomore embraced the big stage last season. In his prime time debut as the starter, he nished 25 for 27 for 356 yards and four touchdowns. In his nal game, he led the Seminoles on an 80-yard drive and threw the winning pass to give FSU its third national title. But the stakes will be even higher this season, in what may be his last in Tallahassee. Its all about what you do now, coach Jimbo Fisher told reporters at Atlantic Coast Conference media days in July. You have to live in the moment, you have to proceed to the future, learn from our past experiences, and grow from them, and then be hungry enough to go play great football this fall. Heres what history tells us could happen this season: BEST-CASE SCENARIO Winston wins another Heisman, and FSU wins another national title. Ohio State running back Archie Grifn is the only two-time winner of the award (1974-75), and only three quarterbacks since 1994 have led teams to back-to-back titles: Nebraskas Tommie Frazier, Alabamas AJ McCarron and Southern Cals Matt Leinart. Seminoles fans will not like the best example for Winston to follow: Floridas Tim Tebow. A year after becoming the rst sophomore to win the Heisman, he led the Gators to the 2008 national title and was third in Heisman balloting. WORST-CASE SCENARIO Winston gets sidelined, due to injuries or off-theeld issues. He has a durable 6-foot4, 230-pound frame, but theres a reason (according to Yahoo) he took out an insurance policy of at least seven gures. Oklahoma fans know all about this risk. Sam Bradford won the 2008 Heisman and took the Sooners to the national title game, where they lost to Florida. After turning down the NFL draft for another year of college, he sprained his throwing shoulder in the opener and injured it again a few weeks later. Oklahomas 8-5 record was its worst in a decade. In two years at FSU, Winston has drawn off-the-eld headlines with ve run-ins with police, ranging from silly (being accused of stealing soda at Burger King) to serious (sexual assault allegations). He was not arrested in any of the incidents, although he performed community service after being cited for shoplifting seafood from Publix. RETURNING HEISMAN WINNERS Winston nished last season with 4,057 passing yards, 40 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. If he follows the model of recent Heisman-winning quarter backs who returned (excluding Bradfords injury-lled season), Winston would nish with 3,977 yards and about the same number of t ouchdowns and picks. WARD ON WINSTON If anyone in the Panhandle knows what Winston will go through, its Charlie Ward. The two-sport star shined in 1992 to raise expectations for himself and the Seminoles. He led FSU to the national title the next year and won the Heisman. Now the coach at Pensacolas Washington High, Ward has helped mentor Winston. He understands what winning the Heisman has done, just from living the last few months all the scrutiny and notoriety that goes with it Ward said. I do know he under stands what this season is about. If anyones going to put pressure on themselves, it would be him to go out and do the best. Hes competitive. He wants to win every game, everything that he does. Hes going to push those other guys to do that. Hes not going to be complacent with where they are.

The coach doesnt believe the Seminoles need that. Its about the efficiency of our offense and how it fits our defense, he said.KEY STATISTICThe Seminoles set an FBS record with 723 points last season and their 7,267 offensive yards were an ACC record.DEPARTURESThe Seminoles lost four starters on defense and two receivers, two running backs and a center to the NFL, including first-round receiver Kelvin Benjamin. Backup quarterback Jacob Coker trans ferred to Alabama. Expectations remain high, however, for a group that returns seven starters on defense and seven on offense.RUNNING MANThe Seminoles lost 1,600 rushing yards and 56 percent of the ground game to the NFL. Enter running back Karlos Williams, who averaged 8 yards per carry last season. The preseason all-ACC selection ran for 748 yards and 11 touchdowns after switching from safety. The senior needs to prove he can carry the load.TRENCH DIGGINGThe Seminoles return five seniors, including four starters to the offensive line. The group left tackle Cam Erving, right tackle Bobby Hart, center Austin Barron, left guard Josue Matias and right guard Tre Jackson has a combined 112 starts.HELP THE HEISMANReceiver Rashad Greene already ranks in the top seven in FSU history in recep tions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. But there is no other significant experience. Sophomores Bobo Wilson and Kermit Whitfield, seniors Jarred Haggins and Christian Green and five-star freshmen Travis Rudolph and Ermon Lane are vying for roles.A NO-FLY ZONEFSU boasted the top pass defense in the nation and had a school-record 26 interceptions. The secondary remains the teams deepest area. P.J. Williams and Jalen Ramsey are stars. Ronald Darby is one of the countrys top cover corners, and Nate Andrews led the team with four inter ceptions. Safety Tyler Hunter is back from a neck injury.BREAKOUT PLAYERKermit Whitfield, the 5-foot-7, 183-pound sophomore is a star in the hearts of Florida State fans for his go-ahead 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the national champion ship game against Auburn. He is the Seminoles fastest player and led the nation in kickoff-return average (36.4 yards). Fisher said he will get the ball into Whitfields hands more this season.TOP NEWCOMERThe Seminoles would love to pair the talent of running back Dalvin Cook with quarterback Jameis Winston in the backfield. Cook, one of the five-star recruits that FSU has landed in Fishers five seasons, was Floridas Mr. Florida in 2013 and rushed for nearly 4,300 yards in his prep career.BOTTOM LINEFlorida State may lean on the run game more early in the season with a veteran offensive line while the receiver posi tion gets sorted out. But theres still the reigning Heisman winner under center, and All-ACC tight end Nick OLeary will have a larger role.

FIRST AND TENHURRICANES10 things to watch for this seasonCOLLEGE FOOTBALLMIAMI The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 19 @SunCoastSports GREENSBORO, N.C. Miami Hurricanes coach Al Golden seemed comfortably unencumbered as he sat with reporters at the Atlantic Coast Conference media daysin July, even if he had no idea who his starting quarterback would be at Louisville on Sept. 1. After nearly three years of the negativity that arose from always answering questions on the defensive because of the NCAA case that was resolved in October, Golden said this season the Hurricanes as an organization are back to attacking. Im looking forward to just coaching the football team, he said. I was more involved with everything this spring and I enjoyed it. Anything hed have done differently? I dont think, he said. Im happy where I am. Im excited about where we are. I mean, the last couple of years were tough. But its as equally bright right now. Recruiting is starting to turn. Were starting to be on the offensive. Were starting to represent what we want to represent: our brand, our identity, our university, the cultural aspects of the Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, South Miami communities and the diversity of the city. I dont know if I would do anything differently. Is it how I drew it up when I came to Miami? I promise you it wasnt. As for that quarterback quandary. Golden said in July that former projected starter Ryan Williams, recuper ating from a torn anterior cruciate ligament sustained during an April scrimmage, was having an excellent rehabilitation, but the coach would not commit to a date of return for the senior. I think its really important for us to conduct like hes not going to be with us in the short term, and that as a team we rally around whoever the quarterback is and whoever comes out of this race early on. Im not the doctor. All I can tell you is hes having a great recuperation and when the doctors clear him well move forward. A month later, Golden announced true freshman Brad Kaaya had beat out Kansas transfer Jake Heaps for the job. Kaaya was 23-3 as a starter in high school and threw for a school-record 3,855 yards and 27 touchdowns as a senior at Chaminade in West Hills, Calif. He nished his high school career with 5,730 yards and 40 touchdowns in two seasons. At the end of the day, as I told him, hes our quarter back, Golden said. Hes not a freshman quarterback. Hes the University of Miami quarterback. Kaaya, one of the jewels of Miamis most recent recruiting class, arrived at Miami in May and immersed himself in the Hurricanes playbook. He will be the rst true freshman to start under center for the Hurricanes since Jacory Harris in 2008. Miami went 7-6 that year, and the hope is that the Hurricanes stable of play makers, including running back Duke Johnson and receivers like Phillip Dorsett, Stacy Coley and Malcolm Lewis will help Kaaya. Golden said the offensive line also looks strong, but needs help lling the eighth, ninth and 10th spots. He also praised the defense as much improved it was better at any day in the spring than it was last year but deemed it imperative that the defensive line steps up with the addition of talented newcomers such as Michael Wyche, Anthony Moten and Chad Thomas. We all say we want to bring it back, Golden said of UMs past dominance. But we want to do it with our own identity.Hurricanes, Golden shift into attack mode at last By SUSAN MILLER DEGNANTHE MIAMI HERALDMiami leaves threat of NCAA sanctions behind after three years 2014 SCHEDULES1 at Louisville 8 p.m. S6 Florida A&M 7 p.m. S13 Arkansas State 3:30 p.m. S20 at Nebraska 8 p.m. S27 Duke TBA O4 at Georgia Tech TBA O11 Cincinnati TBA O23 at Virginia Tech 7:30 p.m. N1 North Carolina TBA N15 Florida State TBA N22 at Virginia TBA N29 Pittsburgh TBAConference games in bold AP FILE PHOTOMiamis linebacker Tyriq McCord (17) celebrates on the sidelines during last seasons game against Florida.

THE ESSENTIALSCONFERENCE: Atlantic Coast Conference COACH: Al Golden (4th season, 22-15) HOME: Sun Life Stadium, Miami RADIO: 99.3 FM, 820 AM, 1040 AM 2013 REWIND: 9-4 overall, 5-3 ACC (T-2nd in Coastal Division; lost 36-9 to Louisville in Florida Citrus Bowl) TICKETS: 305-284-2263 ONLINE: T H E E SSEN T IALS OVERVIEWMiami coach Al Goldens fourth season at Miami is already different than his first three the NCAA probe revolving around the actions of a former booster is in the past. Were back to talking about who we are and not defending who we arent, Golden said. Maybe the teams fortunes will be different as well.RETURNING PLAYERSThe Hurricanes return seven starters on defense and six on offense, including running back Duke Johnson who is healthy again after his 2013 season ended early because of a broken ankle, and plenty of playmakers. QUARTERBACK QUESTIONThe graduation of Stephen Morris left a hole. Ryan Williams would be the presumed starter, but he is recovering from a torn knee ligament. (He is expected back this season.) Transfer Jake Heaps, who is playing for his third school, lost out to true freshman Brad Kaaya.THROW IN SOME HELPKaaya gets plenty of help from Johnson and talented receivers, including sophomore Stacy Coley (33 receptions for 591 yards last season), senior Phillip Dorsett (13 for 272), junior Herb Waters (28 for 406) and all-conference tight end Clive Walford (34 for 454). SCHEDULEMiamis season ended with a one-sided loss to Louisville in the Russell Athletic Bowl, and the Hurricanes open as the Cardinals opponent for their ACC debut. The Hurricanes also visit Nebraska and Virginia Tech and get Florida State at home in November.DUKES TOUCHESThe Hurricanes were leery about giving Johnson too many touches the last two seasons, trying to preserve him. That isnt in the plans this fall. Johnson has made it clear he wants the ball as much as he can, and he is welcoming the challenge of seeing eight-man defensive fronts, which will likely be the norm until Miamis passing game proves itself.CONCERNS ON DEFENSEThe Hurricanes defense averaged 34 minutes on the field per game the past two seasons, the second-highest among all major college teams. Miami must get better on third downs, and the gains made last year when the Hurricanes started embracing a 3-4 set must carry into this season. Otherwise, the same problems will return, quickly.DEEP BALLMiami had 10 receivers with catches of 25 or more yards last season. If defenses are going to be kept from stacking the box against Johnson, finding a way to keep the deep ball in the repertoire is crucial.KEY STATISTICOf the 22 teams that won a national title between 1980 and 2002, Miami is one of three without a 10-win season during the last decade (Colorado and Washington).BOTTOM LINEGiven the schedule and a tough top group in the Coastal Divison Duke, Virginia Tech and North Carolina its difficult to imagine Miami ending the above streak. But Johnson sounds a determined tone. You cant judge the teams heart, he said. You cant judge the dedication and their hard work. You can look at us from the outside and say, Yeah, they lost their quarterback and some key components on the offensive line, but you cant see how were working every day.

COLLEGE FOOTBALLACC Page 20 Friday, August 29, 2014 The Sun @SunCoastSports After big season, ACC looks for more respectThe Atlantic Coast Conference owns a few prized possessions that once were property of the Southeastern Conference. Among them: A national championship trophy, a Heisman Trophy and a measure of respect. Thats mostly because of Florida States big 2013 season, and now its up to the ACC to keep that momentum going. How about that, man, taking the rein from the SEC, huh? said Heisman winner Jameis Winston of the Seminoles. We are the national champions in this conference, and thats important to me because people do need to respect the ACC more. ... I believe that Florida State, we helped gain that respect, and hopefully we can continue that. Theres no question the Seminoles set the standard for the league after capturing the last national title of the BCS era seven months ago. That helped change the perception of the ACC, which had won two BCS bowls from 1998-2011 before claiming three wins in the nal two years of the format. Now the league needs another team that can challenge Florida State. Maybe it will be Clemson, last years Atlantic Division favorite which bounced back from a lopsided loss to the Seminoles and beat Ohio State in the Orange Bowl. Maybe it will be Louisville, a league newcomer which won two BCS games in the old Big East. Or maybe someone else will make a run like perennial cellar dweller Duke did last year. Clemson averaged more than 40 points and 500 yards a game the past two seasons, and offensive coordinator Chad Morris is not about to let their attack take a step backward, despite missing two record-setting play makers from a year ago in receiver Sammy Watkins and quarterback Tajh Boyd. Nobody knows who they are, Morris said. Nobody cares to know who they are right now, except for their parents and grandparents and all their relatives. Thats ne with Morris and coach Dabo Swinney, whove shared their frustrations with the team to fuel summer workouts. Morris believes quarter back Cole Stoudt, the son of NFL passer Cliff who was backup the past three seasons, has worked to earn his shot and can run the offense as effectively as Boyd, who set the ACC record with 107 touchdown passes. Receivers capable of stepping in for Watkins include Mike Williams, Charone Peake and Adam Humphries. But the only one way for Clemson to gain attention is by showing their skills on the eld. Youve got to play with a hard edge about yourself. Youve got to have that ticked-off approach, Morris said. Were ready to ght anybody and everybody. Thats got to be these guys approach. At Louisville, Bobby Petrino returns as coach and he doesnt look much different from his rst tenure with the Cardinals. The 53-year-old quickly notes that he has changed in other ways. Humbled by an off-eld incident resulting in his ring at Arkansas in April 2012, he understands that second chances dont come BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSClemson, Duke and Louisville among hopeful challengersAP PHOTOClemson quarterback Cole Stoudt throws a pass during a preseason workout in Clemson, S.C.

The independent Irish play four games against ACC schools as part of their membership in all other sports the league sponsors. Notre Dame will play host to North Carolina and Louisville, will visit Florida State and will face Syracuse in East Rutherford, New Jersey.QUARTERBACK QUESTIONSOnly four schools return full-time starters from 2013, and only one (Dukes Anthony Boone) started a game before 2013. The QB with the most career starts? Jameis Winston, the redshirt sophomore who started all 14 games of the Seminoles title run.CLOUDYCOASTALThe Coastal Division might be a crapshoot.

Later in the season, Southern California visits Boston College and Miami travels to Nebraska. From Wire ReportsTurn to the Sun every Saturday for a preview of that days college football lineup.


COREY MARSHALLDefensive tackle Virginia Tech Undersized for the interior at 6-1 and 257 pounds, Marshall can rush the passer and stop the run in reserve roles at defensive end and defensive tackle. The junior was one of the teams top performers in the spring after coming back from a forgettable 2013 redshirt season.RYAN JANVIONSafety Wake Forest He started 12 games as a redshirt freshman last season and he could be in position for a rise in prominence. He plays between a pair of veteran cornerbacks, so that should help his cause. As the Demon Deacons look to nurture leadership, Javion appears to be a logical candidate.RON THOMPSONDefensive end Syracuse Thompson came to Syracuse as a much-heralded tight end, but it looks like hell get a chance to make a bigger impact on defense. After having 4.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage a year ago, he is in position to take over for the departed Jay Bromley as the Oranges biggest pass-rushing threat.CHAD VOYTIKQuarterback Pittsburgh His play in the second half of the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl victory against Bowling Green offered evidence of his potential. He led the Panthers to two late scores (touchdown, field goal) in the 30-27 victory.MIKE WILLIAMSWide receiver Clemson At 6-3, 210 pounds, he possesses the size and the savvy to be the next big-time receiver at Clemson. Williams had 20 catches for 316 yards and three touchdowns last year as a freshman and showed a knack for high-pointing the ball and using his body to out-man smaller defensive backs. JOSEPH AJEIGBERunning back Duke A redshirt freshman who could force his way into significant playing time, particularly if the Blue Devils rotate running backs as they have in the past. Ajeigbes strength with a 210-pound frame is one of his selling points to coach David Cutcliffe.BOHINESWide receiver North Carolina State He turned in a big-time performance in the spring game. That momentum has continued in preseason practice and hes one of the reasons the Wolfpack looks deeper and more talented at wide receiver. CHRIS JAMESRunning back Pittsburgh James rushed for 3,832 yards in high school in Niles (Ill.), a Chicago suburb. Even with starter Isaac Bennett and his backup, James Connor returning, James looks like he could be a contributor in his first season.TYLER MURPHYQuarterback Boston College Hes a graduate senior and the only expe rienced option behind center on the roster. He didnt play much at Florida, but it was still the SEC. He knows what big games are all about.MARSHAWN WILLIAMSRunning back Virginia The 5-11, 229-pound freshman, whos recovering from a July hernia surgery, is a battering ram who added a much-needed power element to the Hokies rushing stable in the spring.

Im very fortunate and very appreciative of (athletic director) Tom Jurich and Dr. (James) Ramsey in giving me this opportunity, Petrino said. Ive certainly grown and changed throughout the years in things that Ive experienced and things that Ive caused myself. And Im just fortunate to be able to continue in the sport that I love so much and to coach football. One constant is Petrinos offensive expertise, which is why hes eager to begin his sequel with Louisville as it enters the Atlantic Coast Conference. Hired in January to replace Charlie Strong, Petrino wants to continue the Cardinals success with the same high-powered philosophy that put them on the map. Our No. 1 goal is to win a national championship, said Petrino, who is 83-30 in nine seasons as a college coach, including 41-9 in his rst stint with the Cardinals from 200306. Thats something were working on every day to try to achieve. Duke won its rst Coastal Division title last year, and the Blue Devils believe they can do it again. So do many voters: In the ACCs preseason media balloting, Duke received the most rst-place votes in the Coastal but still were picked to nish second behind Miami. Duke is coming off its second consecutive bowl appearance, the rst time thats happened in school history, and the Blue Devils want to make it three in a row and nally win one. After being picked last in either the division or overall in the ACC every year but once since 2000, high expectations will test the mental toughness and focus of a team that wants to extract condence from its run of recent success without developing a sense of entitlement or complacency. The bowl games bring in better recruits and more talented players, and all theyre going to know is bowl games, quarterback Anthony Boone said. Obviously, the mentality is going to change a little bit, but when it comes to a work standpoint, that will never change.

COLLEGE FOOTBALLCENTRAL FLORIDA Page 22 Friday, August 29, 2014 The Sun @SunCoastSports Nonconference games hold key for UCF hopesORLANDO Coming off a win in the Fiesta Bowl in January, the Central Florida football team isnt certain where it ts in the College Football Playoff system. Honestly, I have no idea, senior wide receiver J.J. Worton said at the teams media day earlier this month. I just know were gonna go out and try to win every game possible, and it will fall into place. His lack of concern was echoed by teammates. I just know that we have to come out and play every game as if its a one-game season and prepare ourselves for the next one, senior tight end Justin Tukes said. One thing the Knights are sure about is they expect to carry the momentum from last years 12-1 season, which culminated in the 52-42 victory against Baylor. While the Knights must replace quarterback Blake Bortles, who was selected by Jacksonville with the third pick in the NFL draft, they return 15 starters, including nine on defense. But will that be enough to impress a selection committee that will rank the top 25 teams in the country and the top-ranked team from the Group of Five conferences. The Group of Five includes Conference USA, the Mid-American, the Mountain West and the Sun Belt in addition to the Knights league, the American Athletic. The Group of Five is guaranteed a spot in one of the six major bowls: Rose, Sugar, Orange, Fiesta, Cotton and Peach. UCF coach George OLeary stressed his teams perfor mance in its nonconference games will dictate where his team ends up. Its gonna be interesting how they really do it, he said. Your strength of schedule is gonna be big. I told the coaches in (our) conference: Unless youre playing people, dont be complaining. I think who you play and how you do is gonna be important. I put an emphasis on the nonconference games. I think its critical if we want to have some discussion at the end of the year, youve got to win those games, not just play them, youve got to win. The Knights kick off the season with two nonconfer ence games against major conference opponents. The Knights play Penn State on Saturday in Dublin, Ireland and visit Missouri next week. The Nittany Lions, who UCF beat last season, won seven games last year, and the Tigers went 12-2, nished rst in the SEC East Division and won the Cotton Bowl. The last half of the nonconference slate will likely be a bit easier, with a Sept. 20 home game against Bethune-Cookman and a Oct. 9 home game against BYU. The eight-game AAC conference schedule also looks less intimidating with Louisville in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Weve got to win each game we play, OLeary said. We have 12 one-game seasons. Each game is a season, thats how we deal with it. It doesnt really matter where youre ranked if you dont win because youre not gonna be there long. The Knights start the sea son unranked, although they earned the most points in balloting of any AAC program and any Group of Five school in both the coaches and Associated Press polls. Theyve won at least 10 games in three of the last four years, and have 24 seniors. Once you set a culture, you gotta stay there, you cant go up and down, OLeary said. The players know that and theyre used to winning, thats the expectation level, no matter who theyre playing.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITERREPLACING BORTLESGeorge OLeary named redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo the starter in mid-August. DiNovo follows Blake Bortles, who started as a redshirt freshman in 2011. Everybody looks at Blake Bortles but they forget when Blake was a freshman or sophomore, and thats where were at now with the players we have, OLeary said.BOLSTERINGTHE RUNGAMEOLeary had sophomore William Stanback watch video of Kevin Smith, the programs all-time leading rusher. Smith averaged more than 25 carries per game in his three years with the Knights. I want him to be the back that can carry it 30 times if were gonna do that, OLeary said.EXPERIENCED WIDEOUTSDiNovo will benefit from the return of the teams top three receivers from last year: Rannell Hall, Breshad Perriman and J.J. Worton.LOOK WHOS BACKJordan Akins, a 2010 recruit who opted to pursue a career in baseball in the Texas organization, is back as a freshman with the Knights. OLeary said Akins could be the surprise player of the year. Akins, a wide receiver in high school, likely will be used as a tight end or slot.PUT THE BALL DOWNThe Central Florida defense returns nine starters, but OLeary said he has been tinkering with new ideas. They do not include changing from a 4-3 alignment. The defense has a new motto: Put the ball down.ATARGETONTHEIR BACKSThe Knights went 8-0 in their first year in the American Athletic Conference, and enter this season as the highest ranked team in the conference. Louisville, which went 7-1 last year, left for the ACC. OLeary didnt want to call his team the favorite, but feels good about his chances to repeat as AAC champs: I think we have as good a chance as anybody else in the conference.STRENGTH OF SCHEDULEOLeary stressed the importance of nonconference games if his team is going to earn consideration for a major bowl game. Those games take on added importance since the Knights dont face Memphis and Cincinnati in conference play. The Bearcats are the AACs secondhighest ranked team in the coaches poll. RENEWING AN OLD RIVALRYGames between UCF and East Carolina played a large role in determining who won the Conference USA East Division between 2005 and 2012. The teams won six of the eight division titles in that span. East Carolina is one of three additions to the AAC. They renew their rivalry in a nationally televised Thursday showdown in Greenville, N.C. on Dec. 4.LUCK OF THE IRISHThe agreement between UCF and Penn State to play their Week 1 game in Dublin, Ireland, was lucky for Knights kicker Sean Galvin, who moved to the United States from Ireland at age 14 and transitioned from playing rugby and soccer to playing football. I cant wait, Galvin said. I get to see my family and everything so it should be a good time.EARLY RETIREMENT?On Aug. 9, reported that OLeary was considering retiring this season, perhaps as early as after the season opener against Penn State. OLeary, who is 68 years old, later told that he has no plans to retire, but that hed like to see assistant coach Brent Key replace him when he does retire.

OVERVIEWThe Bulls cant do much worse than last years 2-10 season that included a 32-point home loss to FCS McNeese State. The season opener against Western Carolina, another FCS team, should indicate if this is an improved team.WHITE BACK AT QBMike White was supposed to redshirt last season, but entered in the Bulls seventh game out of necessity. He started the rest of the way and Taggart named him the starter two weeks ago.DEPTH IN THE BACKFIELDUSF is young at running back. Sophomore Darius Tice is the most experienced with 35 carries last year. Coaches are excited about two freshman from Southwest Florida: Marlon Mack (Booker) and DErnest Johnson (Immokalee). NEW FORMATIONThe Bulls will try to offset the loss of three starters on the defensive line by playing a 3-4 front instead of a 4-3 front. Linebackers coach Raymond Woodie said they might occassionally move back to a 4-3 depending on game situations.LOSSES ON DEFENSEUSF loses nearly 25 percent of its tackling from last season in DeDe Lattimore, Mark Joyce and Brandon Salinas.COUNT ON KLOSSSenior kicker Marvin Kloss, a product of Barron Collier High School in Naples, made 11 field goals of 40 or more yards last season and did not miss a PAT.NO CUPCAKESThe Bulls will not get much of a break in non-conference games, facing three Power 5 schools (Maryland, North Carolina State and Wisconsin) after the opener against Western Carolina. Two of those three games will be at home, though. I-4 CORRIDOR CLASHUSF resumed its rivalry with UCF last season, losing 23-20 on Nov. 29. The Bulls won the previous four meetings between the two teams from 2005-2008 and look to regain control of the rivalry when they host the season finale.KEY STATThe USF offense only averaged five or more yards per play in two games, and the defense allowed at least 6.3 yards per play four times.BOTTOM LINEIf South Florida struggles again, Willie Taggart will find himself on the hot seat if hes lucky enough to keep his job. Zach Miller It invested in a new slogan (Live Green and Gold) and sleek new helmets. Its coach spent the summer barnstorming from Atlanta to Miami to help generate hope and booster support. Even its website received a facelift. But nothing has helped foster offseason zeal for South Florida football quite like the impromptu video that offensive lineman Thor Jozwiak shot in July. As 320-pound teammate Todd Chandler prepared to squat 700 pounds during a workout, Jozwiak had the presence of mind to chronicle the moment on his iPhone. Chandler pulled it off, with excruciation to spare. Just a normal day in the weight room, he said. More than 70,000 hits later, the video has served as a 55-second testimonial to USFs collective offseason pursuit of brawn. Its anyone guess as to whether the Bulls, sixth in the American Athletic Conferences preseason media poll, will have the record of a bowl qualier in 2014. But at least theyll have the look of one. Honestly, (the weight room progress) is the best Ive ever seen as far as a group of men, linebacker Reshard Cliett said. A year after being regularly outsized, out-strengthened and outscored in nishing 2-10, coach Willie Taggarts team has experienced an across-the-board physical transformation. The things weve needed to do in our offseason, weve done, Taggart said. Eighteen lettermen have added 14 or more pounds of muscle, according to USFs preseason outlook. Sophomore quarterback Mike White is listed at 211, a 25-pound increase. Sophomore linebacker Nigel Harris weighs 220, a 30-pound gain. Four of last years starting offensive linemen, who averaged 287 pounds, are well over 300. The fth, center Austin Reiter, is at 296 after being listed at 273 last fall. Meanwhile, several incoming freshmen have made rapid transformations. Linebacker Jimmy Bayes of Immokalee, listed at 185 when he signed in February, weighs 225. Cornerback Tajee Fullwood, who played at 175 at Tampa Bay Tech last season, is 209. Immokalee running back DErnest Johnson is 207, a 27-pound gain since his arrival. I think a lot of these (freshmen) physically are built to gain weight, Taggart said. They just needed a good weight program and needed to eat right, and its made a big difference fast. Apparently, so has the arrival of new strength coach Irele Oderinde, whose resume includes stops at Notre Dame, South Carolina and West Virginia. A former Western Kentucky nose guard and Kentucky state high school powerlifting champ, Oderinde (EAR-lay OhDARE-n-day) was hired to replace Hans Straub, who resigned in mid May after issuing a disparaging tweet about former Bulls defensive end Aaron Lynch. While Straub set the groundwork for USFs transformation, Oderinde successfully has built on it by endearing himself to the players in short order. Hes denitely like another dad, another coach, senior receiver Andre Davis said. Oderinde, who spotted for Chandler on his viral squat, also watched redshirt freshman defensive tackle Deadrin Senat bench press 475 pounds in late July. While continuing Straubs efforts, Oderinde has streamlined a few. Senat (61, 300) dropped 18 pounds. Defensive tackle Derrick Calloway (6-2, 285) lost 43. (Oderinde) wont beat you down or dog cuss you if youre not getting there. Hell motivate you and want to help you get there, Chandler said. Its a differ ent attitude in the weight room and on the eld as we condition. Yet for all the physical strides, the weightiest issue has yet to be resolved. Will the new mentors, attitudes and bodies yield results? Getting into a bowl game is a must for us in order to rebuild our program, Taggart said. Its a process; each year brings challenges. You dont build that program in one season. Youve got to build it brick by brick. There are no shortcuts.By JOEY KNIGHTTAMPA BAY TIMESAfter being bulled over, USF transforms itself in the offseason A weighty issueCOLLEGE FOOTBALLSOUTH FLORIDA The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 23 @SunCoastSports AP FILE PHOTOSouth Florida linebacker Devekeyan Lattimore, shown hitting Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater last season, worked out of a 4-3 formation last year.

THE FAVORITECincinnati is favored and loving it. The Bearcats return 17 starters and hand the quarterback job to former five-star recruit and Notre Dame transfer Gunner Kiel. With a couple of tough nonconference games at Ohio State and Miami, the Bearcats are setting themselves up for a spot in a New Years bowl.A GOOD SIGNYear 1 under coach Willie Taggart was ugly at times for South Florida (2-10). However, the Bulls signed the top recruiting class in the conference. REPLACING BLAKECentral Florida QB Blake Bortles was the No. 3 pick in the NFL draft. Hell be tough to replace. Getting the first crack at it is redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo, who beat Justin Holman, freshman Tyler Harris and Boise State transfer Nick Patti. NO SHOWDOWNCincinnati and defending conference champion Central Florida do not play this season. The 11-team league plays eight league games, so each team misses two league foes. And the conference championship game doesnt start until next season, when Navy joins to give the AAC two six-team divisions. The Bearcats also get Houston and East Carolina at home.WELCOME TO THREETulane, Tulsa and East Carolina join the American this season, three more Conference USA imports. Tulsa is coming off a disappointing 3-9 season. Tulane was one of last seasons surprises, going 7-6. East Carolina has retooling to do, but is expected to be the best of the newcomers.PITCH AND CATCHEast Carolina features one of the most productive quarterback-receiver combos in the country: Shane Carden and Justin Hardy. Carden threw for 4,139 yards and accounted for 43 touchdowns (33 TD passes) last season. Hardy needs 84 catches (he had 114 last year) to become the FBS career leader. Oklahomas Ryan Broyles had 349.HOLD THAT LINEMemphis is taking steps forward under third-year coach Justin Fuente. If the Tigers take a big leap, theyll be led by one of the better defensive lines outside the Power Five conferences. End Martin Ifedi had 11 sacks last season, and end Ricky Hunter and nose tackle Terry Redden are all-conference caliber.SOPHOMORE STARSBig things are expected from two quarterbacks who burst onto the scene as freshmen. Houstons John OKorn threw for 3,117 yards and 28 touchdowns as the Cougars won eight games. He has the best group of receivers in the conference, led by Deontay Green berry. Temples P.J. Walker threw for 2,082 yards and 20 TDs and ran for 332 yards. He gives the Owls hope.HUSKIES START ANEWConnecticuts Bob Diaco, the former defensive coordinator at Notre Dame, is the only first-year coach in the conference, and he starts with a couple of marquee home games in the first month. The Huskies open against BYU and host Boise State on Sept. 13.A KEY STATISTICThe Bearcats have won double-digits five times in the past 10 years, played in two BCS bowls and are 29-9 in the last three years. As my teammates would say, Its about time, Cincinnati cornerback Adrian Witty said. Since weve been here, its no respect. Were winning. What else more do you want? Associated PressCommissioner Mike Aresco took to the podium at Julys American Athletic Conference media day and talked about power. We all hear a lot about Power 5 conferences, the Equity 5, the High Resource 5, the Group of 5, the Autonomy 5, whatever you choose to call them, and we consider ourselves a power conference as well, Aresco said. Were not going to take a backseat to anyone. We see the landscape as ve plus one and were knocking on the door. Our goal is to be in the conversation as the sixth power conference. I believe by virtue of our perfor mance that we already are. Bold talk, indeed, from the man in charge of the former Big East, but this is denitely the time to boast. In the Americans rst season, the re-invented league won national championships in mens and womens basketball (Connecticut) and had its football champion (Central Florida) win a BCS game. The end of the Bowl Championship Series also meant the end of automatic entry for the American into the biggest and most-lucrative bowl games. In the new College Football Playoff, the Big 12, Big Ten, Atlantic Coast Conference, Southeastern Conference and Pac-12 aka the Power 5 have assured themselves spots in the six high-prole New Years bowls. The American has no such guarantee. Conceivably, an AAC team could play its way into the seminals. If not, the American gets lumped in with the Mountain West, Sun Belt, Mid-American and Conference USA. Only the best team, as chosen by the playoff selection committee, from those ve conferences is guaranteed a spot in those six bowls. The American, which adds East Carolina, Tulane and Tulsa this season, has a couple of teams that seem well positioned to make a run at that spot. UCF is replacing star quarterback Blake Bortles, but brings back much of the team that went 12-1 and beat Baylor 52-42 in the postseason. The Knights are picked second in the American this year behind Cincinnati, and play a loaded nonconfer ence schedule that includes Penn State in Dublin, Ireland, at Missouri and BYU. Cincinnati (9-4 last season) has 16 starters back and former ve-star recruit Gunner Kiel likely taking over at quarterback. The Bearcats also play at Ohio State and Miami. I think if you want to talk about playoffs, then the people that talk better play people, UCF coach George OLeary said. Nonconference schedule needs to indicate whats going on. I dont buy the power stuff. Were going to give cost of attendance. Were going to give the kids money to eat. How much can you eat? Everything that theyre doing were doing. The Americans resources, however, fall far short of what the Power Five confer ences have at their disposal. Those leagues have billion dollar TV contracts that help provide $20-plus million annual payouts to members. The Americans TV deal with ESPN is worth $126 million over seven years. Still, Aresco wants to make the case the American is closer to the ACC than the Mountain West as the playoff era begins. We do not accept the notion that were not a power conference or this have not tag that some people use, he said. We have resources. We have enormous potential. Make no mistake. Well remain an integral part of the FBS college football fabric. Well always have naysayers. We have far fewer now than before. Its our job now to prove them wrong as we did last year, as UCF did in the Fiesta Bowl, as we did in the basketball championships with UConn.AAC Page 24 Friday, August 29, 2014 The Sun @SunCoastSports With no guarantee, league tests the limits of powerBy RALPH D.

GAINESVILLE A lot of things went wrong for the Florida football team last season, but coach Will Muschamp sees one area where a quick x could make a drastic difference. In his rst three years with at Florida, the Gators went 19-3 when they won or tied the turnover battle and 3-13 when they lost. They went 0-5 when losing the turnover battle last season on the way to a 4-8 record and the rst losing season since 1979. Thats a team stat, Muschamp said at the Gators media day this month. Its not just about offense taking care of the ball, (its also about) defensively getting the ball off people. We havent been explosive enough offensively to overcome turnovers, but I think we will be this year. Thats certainly not saying its OK to turn the ball over because weve got to take care of the ball. Floridas offense committed 20 turnovers last season, including three games in which it committed at least three. Eleven were fumbles, and the coaching staff attempted to address the problem this spring by putting offensive players through more drills that force them to control the ball. Its been a big emphasis, said senior tight end Clay Burton, who is a Venice High School graduate. Always give the ball back to the ref at the end of the play. One person who could help get the ball back to the referee more consistently is senior quarterback Jeff Driskel, who returns from a broken right leg sustained in the third game of last season. Driskel threw three interceptions in the twoand-a-half games he played, and conceded he needs to make smarter decisions for the turnover margin to shift in Floridas favor. At times like last year in the Miami game I played well, but just made a couple bad decisions and red zone interceptions and that cant happen if youre gonna win and be a good team, he said. Turnovers are Muschamps main focus, but its not the only problem the Gators offense had last season. The offense sputtered to 279 total yards against FCS Georgia Southern and 193 against Florida State in the nal two games last season. The Gators ended the year ranked 112th in total offense. Florida red offensive coordinator Brent Pease the day after the Florida State loss and hired Kurt Roper to overhaul the unit. Roper spent the last six years as the offensive coordinator at Duke, which went 10-4 last season and nished the year ranked for the rst time since 1962. Ropers system is a no-huddle, spread attack that will look a lot different from the pro-style offense Gators fans are accustomed to. Roper is the third offensive coordinator Driskel has played for in his four seasons in Gainesville, starting with Charlie Weis in 2011. This (transition has) been the easiest and smoothest, Driskel said. A football plays gonna be a football play, but I know the game a lot better than I have in years past, done a lot of work on my own in the lm room with the coaching staff and that takes time. The Gators were ravaged by injuries last season with 22 of Driskels teammates also missing at least one game. They hope to stay healthy this year and try to erase the bad taste in their mouths left over from last years struggles. I think thats something we sort of buried to start the summer, Muschamp said. Its great motivation through the spring and offseason workouts, but its something you still gotta deal with. Its there. I addressed our team about our preparation, about our attitude, about our embracing adversity, about our having a competitive edge everyday. To stick your head in the sand and pretend it was all injuries, that aint right and youll fool yourself if you do that. We addressed a lot of those things in the offseason.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or 2014 SCHEDULE A30 Idaho 7 p.m. S6 Eastern Michigan 4 p.m. S13 Kentucky 7:30 p.m. S20 at Alabama TBA O4 at Tennessee TBA O11 LSU TBA O18 Missouri TBA N1 Georgia* 3:30 p.m. N8 at Vanderbilt TBA N15 South Carolina TBA N22 Eastern Kentucky TBA N29 at Florida State TBA Conference games in bold *At JacksonvilleCOLLEGE FOOTBALLFLORIDA The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 25 @SunCoastSports Turnaround plan starts with turnoversBy ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITERWith new plan on offense and renewed focus on ball security, Gators feel good AP FILE PHOTOFlorida quarterback Je Driskel, shown scoring during a loss to Miami last season, played 2 games before being lost for the season with a broken right leg.

FIRST AND TENGATORS10 things to watch for this season THE ESSENTIALSCONFERENCE: Southeastern Conference COACH: Will Muschamp (4th season, 22-16) HOME: Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, Gainesville 2013 REWIND: 4-8 overall, 3-5 SEC (5th in SEC East) TICKETS: 1-800-344-2867 RADIO: 620 AM, 930 AM, 1200 AM ONLINE: T HE E SSENTIALS ITSNOTALLABOUT DRISKELFlorida coach Will Muschamp made it clear that Jeff Driskel will not take every snap. The backup quarterback, whether Skyler Mornhinweg or not, will also see action every game. It is no different than what we did with Jeff my first year, Muschamp said. We just gotta get another guy ready.PLAYING OUT OF THE SHOTGUNDriskel will play out of the shotgun, and he is fine with that. Its easier to see the field a little bit better, he said. The only difference is that you have to look down in order to catch it, where under center you can keep your head up. Muschamp said he thinks Driskel looks more comfortable out of the shotgun.BRUTAL SCHEDULEAs it tries to bounce back from the first losing season in 35 years, the Gators draw cross-division SEC games against LSU and Alabama. Then there is the annual game against Florida State, which hasnt lost since Nov. 24, 2012.THE GOAL IS ATLANTAThe Gators expect to compete for a conference title. Our goal is to get to Atlanta and play for an SEC champion ship game, Driskel said. Thats always been our goal since Ive been here. Its gonna take a lot, but I think we have the players to do so.TEMPO, TEMPO, TEMPOThe Gators went through a more rigorous conditioning program this summer to prepare to play in new offensive coordinator Kurt Ropers system, in which play calls come in from the sideline and the team does not huddle.2012 WASNT THAT LONG AGOFlorida went 11-2 and played in the Sugar Bowl in 2012. That year, Auburn went 3-9. The Tigers reached the national championship game last year. Both programs are a reminder how much can change year to year.HARGREAVES LEADS THE DEFENSECornerback Vernon Hargreaves III quickly rose through the depth chart as a freshman and started the last 10 games on his way to being named a third team All-American by the AP and the National Defensive Freshman of the Year by College Football News.INJURYJINXCONTINUESTwenty-three players missed at least one game last season and a few missed the season due to injuries sustained in camp. The Gators started camp on Aug. 4 this year and had 11 players sidelined by Aug. 12. Almost all were day-to-day, and no one has been ruled out for an extended period yet.SHOWING COMMITMENTOnly two players didnt hit their sprint times (16 110-yard sprints) at the end of summer conditioning. As far as buy-in, thats there, Muschamp said. I couldnt say in our previous three years that we had that many guys make it. Thats a hard test. I see some things from this team from an intangible standpoint that are positive.RECEIVING VOTESDespite winning four games last season, Florida was among those teams receiving votes in both the USA Today coaches and AP polls. The Gators face Idaho, Eastern Michigan and Kentucky in their first three games, so they could be ranked by the time they visit Alabama on Sept. 20.

Someone nally knocked the Southeastern Conference off the mountaintop. Now, Alabama and other aspiring national contenders are beginning the climb back in a league that suddenly has a fresh feel. Gone are marquee names Jadeveon Clowney and Johnny Manziel and Heisman Trophy nalists AJ McCarron and Tre Mason. Top contenders like Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia and LSU are breaking in new quarterbacks. Those factors and the wild, unpredictable 2013 season are giving other teams around the league hope. After all, who could have predicted Missouri and Auburns surprising runs to division titles, Floridas injury-fueled struggles or the SEC West and Iron Bowl being settled on Auburns nal-play, 109-yard return of a missed eld goal? Auburn came back and was competing for a national championship, Gators cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III said. You never know whos going to be the best, and thats why the SEC is the best confer ence in college football. But the best team belonged to Florida State, which ended the SECs seven-year national title streak with a 34-31 win over Auburn at the Rose Bowl. Still, maybe its the year for Mississippi to break through or Florida to make a dramatic rebound like Auburn did a year ago after an 0-8 SEC season. Or maybe Alabama, with three national titles in ve seasons, returns to the top. It certainly wouldnt be a surprise for Steve Spurrier to lead South Carolina to its rst SEC championship. The Gamecocks have posted three consecutive 11-2 records and are coming off a No. 4 nal ranking. Nobody picked Missouri and Auburn to win the divisions last year, Spurrier said. Thats why we play the game. We dont know whos going to win em. Start with Alabama. Reeling from a loss to Florida that ended its national championship hopes during the 2008 season, the Crimson Tide followed up with a shaky Sugar Bowl performance in a loss to Utah. They rebounded with three national championships and 49 wins over four years. The challenge now is to do it again after a similar end-of-season fade a last-play loss to Auburn and a beating from Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl. The time is now to resurrect the identity of the Alabama football program, coach Nick Saban said. It might be more of a reboot than a resurrection, but the ending cast a pall on a season that seemed pointed toward a shot at a third consecutive national title. Theres little question Alabama remains talented enough to again contend for at least a conference title, even minus stars like quarterback AJ McCarron and linebacker C.J. Mosley. The T.J. Yeldon-led backeld is loaded. Amari Cooper headlines a deep, talented group of receivers. The defense has preseason rst-team All-SEC picks in safety Landon Collins, linebacker Trey DePriest and defensive end AShawn Robinson. And the latest No. 1 recruiting class is in place to SEC Page 26 Friday, August 29, 2014 The Sun @SunCoastSports No Manziel? No Clowney?

SEC | 27 COLLEGE FOOTBALL FIRST AND TENSOUTHEASTERN10 things to watch for this seasonCHANGING QUARTERBACKSSeven of the top eight passers from last season are gone, including Texas A&Ms Johnny Manziel, Alabamas AJ McCarron and Georgias Aaron Murray. Only six teams have starters back. Freshmen are in the mix at Texas A&M, Kentucky and LSU. UNCORKING COKERFlorida State transfer Jacob Coker was named co-starter with Blake Sims, AJ McCarrons backup last season who will start the season-opener. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Coker is more in McCarrons mold and saw action in 11 games for the Seminoles the past two years. Sims was a running back as a redshirt freshman.SPLASHY HIRESGeorgia and Alabama made splashes hiring coordinators. Alabama landed former Tennessee, Southern California and Oakland Raiders coach Lane Kiffin to run an offense thats loaded at running back and wide receiver. Georgia lured Jeremy Pruitt away from Florida State to improve a middle-of-thepack defense. SIDELINE STABILITYFor all the player turnover, the only new coach is Vanderbilts Derek Mason, formerly Stanfords defensive coordi nator, who replaced James Franklin (Penn State).FLORIDAS HOPESCoach Will Muschamp acknowledged at media days the chatter about hot seat business after Floridas first losing season since 1979. Quarterback Jeff Driskel returns from a broken leg with a new offensive coordinator, Kurt Roper, who came from Duke. The Gators could be a candidate for a big turnaround.FRESH FACESLSU coach Les Miles lost 16 under classmen to the NFL draft, giving more freshmen opportunities to make impacts. Tailback Leonard Fournette was the nations consensus top pros pect. Top quarterback prospect Kyle Allen could claim Texas A&Ms starting job. At Alabama, Cam Robinson is the front-runner to start at left tackle.REPLACING CLOWNEYDarius English, a 6-6 sophomore, takes Jadaveon Clowneys spot at defensive end for South Carolina. Steve Spurrier said he likes the attitude of his players, taking a jibe at Clowney. Theres a lot of chemistry, the coach said. Nobodys standing on the sidelines, nobody was hurt, nobodys pouting.SHOW ME AGAINMissouri, which won the East, is motivated after being picked to finish fourth. Quarterback Maty Mauk went 3-1 when James Franklin was injured. He had 11 TD passes and two intercep tions. Tailbacks Russell Hansbrough and Marcus Murphy combined for 1,286 yards and 13 touchdowns.EARLY SHOWDOWNSOpening week could give a pretty fair idea of where teams stand. Texas A&M and South Carolina started the season Aug. 28. Theyve not played each other.

JONATHANALLENDefensive end Alabama Allen (6-3, 272) had an impressive showing in Alabamas spring game (blocked kick, two sacks) after playing in all 13 games for the Tide as a freshman in 2013. His pass-rushing skills could make a big differ ence for the defense this time around.BRAYLON HEARDRunning back Kentucky The Nebraska transfer will be part of the running back mix with sophomore Jojo Kemp and junior Josh Clemons. The junior rushed for 452 yards in two seasons with the Cornhuskers. He had a strong spring to put himself in position to be Kentuckys main ball carrier. The 5-foot-11, 189-pounder could provide the game breaking element lacking in recent seasons.ROBERTNKEMDICHEDefensive tackle Mississippi So much was expected of Nkemdiche, the nations consensus top-ranked prospect in his recruiting cycle, as a freshman. Injuries and some shuffling Nkemdiche alternated between end and tackle slowed him, but he finished the year with 34 tackles, eight tackles for loss and two sacks. Now weighing 288 pounds, the 6-5 Nkemdiche has found a permanent home at tackle and has been a disruptive force in fall camp.ROBENSONTHEREZIEDefensive back Auburn Playing the star hybrid position in Auburns 4-2-5 scheme, Therezie led Auburn in interceptions with four last season. After receiving honorable mention in 2013, he will compete for higher SEC honors in 2014.SHAQROLANDWide receiver South Carolina He was Mr. Football in South Carolina as a high school senior playing less than 30 minutes from Williams-Brice Stadium. He caught five passes as a freshman and served a three-game suspension in the middle of the season. He moved to the next level in preseason camp and with a throwfirst mentality in the Gamecocks offense, Roland could be the biggest benefactor on the team.DHAQUILLE WILLIAMSWide receiver Auburn The junior college transfer from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College will give the Tigers another receiving threat to take some of the pressure off Sammie Coats. Williams (6-2, 216) caught 51 passes with nine of them for touchdowns in 2013.KYLEALLENQuarterback Texas A&M His bid to become the first true freshman to start at quarterback for the Aggies since World War II ended when the Aggies tapped Kenny Hill the No. 1 quarterback for the opener at South Carolina. Allen passed for more than 8,000 yards and 86 touchdowns in high school. Hes not the runner that Johnny Manziel was, but that could just take the pressure off of him to be Manziel-like. LORENZO CARTERDefensive end Georgia The 6-foot-5, 235-pound true freshman impressed coaches with his of intelligence and athletic ability. In new defensive coor dinator Jeremy Pruitts 3-4 scheme, Carter could see time at outside linebacker and defensive end. Hes another talented, speedy edge rusher for Georgia.JAKECOKERQuarterback Alabama The Florida State transfer was the favorite to replace AJ McCarron. Coker was 18-of-36 passing for the Seminoles while backing up Jameis Winston last year before injuring his knee. He is eligible after graduating from FSU.MALACHIDUPREWide receiver LSU It would have been too easy to select No. 1 national recruit Leonard Fournette, so we introduce his teammate instead. He was one of the top-rated receivers coming out of high school last season. If it werent for Fournette being in the same class, Dupre would be the newcomer attracting the most attention. It shouldnt take long for him to attract the attention of opposing defenses. The Sports Xchange J ONATHAN A LLEN B RAYLON H EARD lend a hand. The newcomers include the leading contender to be the starting quarter back, Florida State transfer Jacob Coker, Jameis Winstons backup last season. Were ready to get back out there and prove to the NCAA that we can be one of the topnotch teams, safety Landon Collins said. At Auburn, the theme since January has been about being seconds better. The Tigers will not sneak up on anyone after winning the SEC and making it to the brink of the 2013 national title, before Florida States game-winning touchdown with 13 seconds remaining in the championship game. They might be better and still not duplicate last years run that included one win on a deected Hail Mary (Georgia) and another on a last-play return of a missed eld goal (Alabama). This year were going to be circled, said coach Gus Malzahn, who directed the biggest one-year turnaround in SEC history during his debut season. We told our players that. Were going to have to be better in every phase, especially early in the season. Shon Coleman replaces the second overall NFL draft pick Greg Robinson at left tackle four years after being diagnosed with leukemia. The Tigers also must replace defensive end Dee Ford, also a rst-rounder, and Heisman Trophy nalist tailback Tre Mason. Quarterback Nick Marshall, receiver Sammie Coates and leading tackler Cassanova McKinzy are back. Center Reese Dismukes said the seconds anthem has been a motivator but a big takeaway from last season is knowing that were never out of it. Anything can happen. Which brings us back to Spurrier, whos entering his 10th season and believes after three consecutive 11-2 seasons, his club is prepared to win the SEC championship. Our guys can play some ball now, Spurrier said. Spurriers not alone in that belief. South Carolina is the preseason pick to win the SEC East and give the head ball coach a shot at his rst league crown since his Fun-n-Gun days at Florida. That might be difcult without the top-ight per formers the Gamecocks have sent to the NFL in recent years, including Clowney, the NFL drafts No. 1 overall pick in May. Also gone from last season are sacks leader Kelcy Quarles and quarterback Connor Shaw, who Spurrier has said is the greatest quarterback in team history. But Spurriers not chalking this season up to a rebuilding act. I do think were a school with advantages now, he said. We graduate our play ers, they stay out of trouble and we win.SECFROM PAGE 26COLLEGE FOOTBALLSEC The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 27 @SunCoastSports PROJECTED FINISHEAST WEST 1. South Carolina 1.

COLLEGE FOOTBALLBIG TEN Page 28 Friday, August 29, 2014 The Sun @SunCoastSports So Urban Meyer and his wife were coming back from the victory at rival Michigan last season, and he turned and asked a question. In your wildest dreams, could you have imagined wed win our rst 24 games at Ohio State? he said. Shelley Meyer thought a second and then replied, Honey, youre not in my wildest dreams. Regardless of whether that tale, told by Meyer at a womens clinic this summer, is true, theres no question that he could hardly believe his tenure with the Buckeyes opened with two dozen wins or that last season would close with two painful losses. Then came the nightmare scenario earlier this month. Quarterback Braxton Miller, a two-time winner of the Big Tens top player award, re-injured his right shoulder on Aug. 18 and is out for the year. He missed all of the spring after surgery on the shoulder and said he had some soreness after the rst week of fall camp. Untested redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett will take the reins of Meyers offense. No pressure, kid. Barrett is also a dual-threat quarterback who was the No. 3-ranked recruit coming out of high school in 2013. Arm strength isnt his greatest asset, but offensive coordinator Tom Herman said that is not a concern. He makes up for it in his anticipation and his accuracy and all that, Herman said of Barrett. You dont have to have a howitzer to be successful in college football. Im very pleased with his continuing growth. A growing Big Ten beckons with the conference expanding from 12 to 14 teams with the addition of Maryland and Rutgers. In addition to two new teams, there are two new divisions West and East, where Ohio State and Michigan State nd themselves. And the Spartans have some wild aspirations of their own. Were going to dream big, coach Mark Dantonio said. The Spartans are on a mission to prove they belong, that last seasons success was the latest step in a progression toward national prominence. In fact, their coach is convinced if the College Football Playoff existed last season, Michigan State would have been the champions. I thought we would have been national champions to be perfectly honest with you, he said. I think we were playing our best football in November and then into the championship game and then the Rose Bowl. The national championship is the goal this season. Its human nature when youve been able to run a four-minute mile, you want to break that down, Dantonio said.

AP PHOTOMichigan State cornerback Trae Waynes, right, intercepts a pass intended for Stanford wide receiver Michael Rector during the Rose Bowl in January. Since he will be paired with a newcomer in the defensive backeld, Waynes will have to ll the role vacated by Darqueze Dennard, who was a three-year starter.DREAMS | 29 FIRST AND TENBIG TEN10 things to watch for this seasonSPARTYPARTYMichigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi has a track record of fielding some of the nations best units. Dont expect anything different even though he lost six starters. The offense should keep rolling, returning 97 percent of its production, including quarterback Connor Cook and running back Jeremy Langford.BUCKEYE BOUNCEBACKOhio State, coming off two consecutive losses, is a trendy pick to win the East even though Urban Meyer must replace four offensive linemen and quarterback Braxton Miller (injured shoulder). The losses of running back Carlos Hyde and backup quarterback Kenny Guiton shouldnt be underestimated.RISINGIOWAThe Hawkeyes won four games in 2012, eight in 2013, and more could be in store in 2014. They have experienced quarterback Jake Rudock, dependable running backs and an offensive line featuring NFL prospect Brandon Scherff. They also have the leagues softest schedule: West opponents Northwestern, Wisconsin and Nebraska come to Iowa City.WELCOME ABOARDNewcomers Maryland and Rutgers will play in the East. With Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, the Terrapins have one of the conferences most dangerous receiving corps. Rutgers should be competent offensively with new coordinator Ralph Friedgen; the defense could be a problem.LIONS DENPenn States Franklin has his hands full until NCAA sanctions end in a couple of years. His most pressing issue is how to keep quarterback Christian Hack enberg upright. The offensive line and receivers are the biggest weaknesses.MICHIGAN SHUFFLECoach Brady Hoke is looking to re-en ergize his program after a narrow win against Akron and losses in six of the last eight games. He brought in Doug Nussmeier from Alabama to run the offense and shuffled his defensive coaching staff.BEST BACKSNebraskas Ameer Abdullah (1,690 yards) and Wisconsins Melvin Gordon (1,609) are the nations top two returning rushers and both are in the Heisman Trophy conversation.ON WISCONSINA year after setting school records for rushing and total offense, the Badgers started practice trying to decide between quarterbacks Joel Stave and Tanner McEvoy and trying to replace wide receiver Jared Abbrederis. The Badgers also lost six of the defensive front seven.LOOKINGFORMOJONorthwestern, Minnesota, Illinois and Purdue in the West and Indiana in the East are teams looking to move up. Northwestern missed a bowl for the first time since 2007. Minnesota lost three in a row after an 8-2 start, and Illinois beat Purdue in a pillow fight. If Indianas offense can ever get help from the defense, the Hoosiers might make a bowl.HOT SEATSMichigans Hoke has the program trending downward since going 11-2 in 2011, his first season. Nebraska hasnt won a conference title since 1999, and fans are antsy after watching Bo Pelini lose no fewer than four games each of his six seasons. Tim Beckman is 6-18 in two years at Illinois, 1-15 in Big Ten games. Associated Press


are able to go to the moon, you want to go farther. So, yeah, we talk about it (the national title). Once. Braxtons injury muted title talk at Ohio State, where Meyer and his staff blew up the pass coverage after it was shredded by Michigan State in the Big Ten title game and Clemson in the Orange Bowl. Now the Buckeyes will play press coverage with a rotation of cornerbacks in hopes of limiting completions over the top and underneath. Thats not a concern, safety Vonn Bell said of the secondary. Im not concerned and (the fans) shouldnt be. But Michigan State should concern the Buckeyes. The defending Rose Bowl champions have played in two of the three Big Ten title games are enjoying the best run in program history with 42 wins in four years. Yet the Spartans cling to an underdog mentality, the product of being over shadowed historically by Michigan and Ohio State. Respectability can y right out the window on us, Dantonio said. So its what weve done lately that youre basically judged on, and we continue to build our future. The task gets tougher this year. The Spartans play host to the Buckeyes in November. Of more immediate concern is a trip to Oregon the rst week of September. Were coming with at least a bona de big game under our belts as we move forward, Dantonio said. One way or the other, win or lose, we need to gain experience from that game and be able to push through and into the conference. Buckeyes fans are already focused on the Nov. 8 meeting in East Lansing. Last year, the 10th-ranked Spartans ended No. 2 Ohio States school-record winning streak and knocked it out of the national championship game with a 34-24 win in the Big Ten title game. This years showdown comes with a division title possibly at stake and could help determine whether the Buckeyes or Spartans land a spot in the inaugural, four-team College Football Playoff. Still, Meyer said, Theres zero conversation about tomorrow or November. Thats only a topic in his dreams.

COLLEGE FOOTBALLBIG 12 Page 30 Friday, August 29, 2014 The Sun @SunCoastSports Coming on StrongAUSTIN, Texas Charlie Strong has been prepping to lead Texas for 30 years. The evidence is tucked away in his ofce, stuffed into le cabinets one page, one lesson, one line at a time. Inside the drawers are daily notes, quotes, practice reports, meeting agendas and conversations that span a career from his rst job as a graduate assistant at Florida in 1983 to stops at Texas A&M, Mississippi, South Carolina, Notre Dame and back to Florida before getting the top job at Louisville. Some are typed on pages still crisp. Others are handwritten on oppy, withered paper. They have followed Strong to every job he has had, including Texas. His attention to detail was unmatched, said Gary Darnell, who coached with Strong at Florida in 1988-89. He loves gathering information. He was either going to be a professor or a coach. And it likely explains why Strong comes off as so condent to face the mission in front of him: returning Texas to the top of the Big 12. It isnt a monster, Strong said of Texas, despite the fact that his ofce view of the stadium is partly blocked by a video board so big its nickname is Godzillatron. Its a program with all the resources you need. Strong will need every bit of that condence and those resources as he begins his tenure. Strong, the rst black head coach of a mens sport at Texas, was hired to replace Mack Brown, who in 2005 delivered the Longhorns rst national championship in 36 years and led them to another national title game after the 2009 season. Since 2010, Texas hasnt won more than nine games in a season. Texas offensive coordinator Joe Wickline, who was with Strong as a graduate assistant at Florida, describes him as insanely organized. Hes always been like that, Wickline said. He made notes of drops, missed assignments. Everything. But it was more than routine stuff. By documenting the details, Strong was soaking up years of teaching from national championship-winning coaches such as Lou Holtz, Steve Spurrier and Urban Meyer. Spurrier taught him how to build team condence, not just for a game, but a program-wide swagger. (Spurrier) built a condence in a team where you knew you werent going to lose a game. It didnt matter who we played, he made that team feel its time to go put on a show, Strong said. They came here to watch US play ... No matter where we went, Alabama or Auburn, it didnt matter. Holtz taught him about attention to detail. Not just within a game or practice or playbook, but within his players. Holtz demanded that his assistant coaches know their players better than he did. And it was challenge because Holtz seemed to know everything about every player on the roster, from their personal lives to their weekly academic status. Strong gives each of his players a biography form to ll out. It asks personal questions, such as naming three people they would like to have dinner with, the last time they cried, and the happiest days of their lives. Thats important when inheriting a roster of players he didnt recruit and only rst met a few months ago. We want to understand our players, Strong said. I dont ever want our coaches to ask a player Hows your mom? when really he lost her when he was 2 years old. The players also have to understand him. And play by his rules. He had laid down core values of no drugs, no guns, no stealing, be honest and treat women with respect in his rst meeting with the team back in January. Then he created a stir with a series of dismissals or suspensions at the start of training camp. I say it all of the time, if a young man doesnt want to be a part of this program, just break a core value and you are telling me exactly where you want to stand, Strong said.By JIM VERTUNOASSOCIATED PRESSNew Texas coach brings condence and attention to detail to big task AP FILE PHOTOAfter riding a wave of optimism since being hired by Texas in January, Charlie Strong tries to return the Longhorns to glory with a roster he didnt recruit and only met a few months ago.

COLLEGE FOOTBALLPAC-12 The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 31 @SunCoastSports New playoff script offers hope for a happy endingLOS ANGELES The Pac12 Conference launched its season this month under sunshine and umbrellas at Paramount Pictures the perfect venue for a league looking to rewrite the script to so many unhappy endings. Everything is teed up for Larry Scott, entering his sixth year as commissioner, to yell thats a wrap on a lm in which his heroes actually prevail. Scott has delivered on a $3-billion television deal that has fattened coffers and allowed his lower-rung schools to hire coaches such as Mike Leach and Rich Rodriguez. Facilities have been upgraded to the point that Rodriguez joked Oregon changes it out like Porta-Potties. The conference is peaking in star power as it returns 10 of its 12 starting quarterbacks. The one thing missing is the leagues rst national championship since Southern Californias vacated crown of 2004. Until we win a national championship, there will be an asterisk, Scott said under the shade of a movie-lot tree. And that goes with the territory, its competitive, and our coaches get that. The best news in years is the implementation of a four-team playoff that promises to offer access to more schools outside the Southeastern Conferences suffocating sphere. The Bowl Championship Series was torture to the Pac-12 and the league should rejoice in its death. The system did not satisfactorily compensate a confer ence that played a ninegame league schedule and refused to gloss its statistics against out-of-conference weaklings. SEC teams won nine national titles in 16 BCS years, nished second twice, and was furious in 2004 when Auburn got left out. The Pac-12 put three teams into the championship game in 2004, 2005 and 2010. Most years, the SEC was the best conference in college football. But Pac 12 supporters were left to wonder if there really was that much of a competitive gap between the top two teams and No. 5? Had the four-team playoff started in 1998, the Pac-12 would have bathed in play off consideration. Oregon would have had three shots, not one, at the title. The Pac-12 placed 20 teams in the top six of the nal BCS standings, compared to 24 for the SEC. Yet, the SEC won eight more championships. And USC was not the only Pac school in the hunt. The Trojans were top six only six times. UCLA nished No. 5 in 1998, even after a heart-breaking loss at Miami on the nal weekend. In 2000, Washington was fourth and Oregon State was sixth. Oregon was No. 4 in 2001, No. 5 in 2005, No. 5 in 2011 and No. 4 in 2012. Washington State was sixth in 2002. Oregon and UCLA are the leagues strongest playoff candidates, with USC possibly on the cusp. The league is simply crawling with quarterback talent, while Chris Petersens arrival at Washington adds another layer to an already exceptional coaching roster. Washington State quar terback Connor Halliday, a self-avowed college football nut, thinks the playoff is the best thing to happen to the Pac since Jim Plunkett. It will denitely help the Pac-12, said Halliday, who passed for a school-record 4,597 yards last season. Halliday says four playoffs spots put the Pac-12 on equal footing with the SEC. Out here on the West Coast, we just dont get the play they do Halliday said. Maybe Oregon does a little bit because theyve been there for a while. Halliday added, I cant wait to watch it. I cant wait to see how it all goes down. And, I cant wait to see all the comments after the fth team gets left out. However, good news doesnt come rent free. Death to the BCS means nothing unless the Pac-12 takes advantage. Certainly weve had teams knocking at the door, Scott said. Weve got the capability but, you know, youve got to win.By CHRIS DUFRESNELOS ANGELES TIMESOregon, UCLA look the most prepared to earn a playoff berth AP FILE PHOTOOregons Marcus Mariota, shown eluding Texas Caleb Bluiett during the Valero Alamo Bowl this past sason, is one of the nations best dual-threat quarterbacks and among the elite contenders for the Heisman.

While the Trojans rebuild, the Bruins are loaded for a run at the league title. Hundleys veteran leadership is the biggest reason, but Mora has a wealth of talent led by Myles Jack, who starred as a linebacker and a tailback as a freshman.PETERSEN ARRIVESWhen Steve Sarkisian returned home to Southern California, Washington pried coach Chris Petersen out of his comfort able job at powerhouse Boise State. The Huskies are eager to see whether Peters ens system will succeed at the sports highest level.DUCK SPOTLIGHTAfter nearly three decades in Eugene, Don Pellum has the unenviable task of succeeding retired Nick Aliotti as Oregons defensive coordinator.

After four consecutive BCS bowl games and two straight league titles, Shaw is confident Stanfords system will produce another title particu larly with Hogan back for another year behind center.BIG GAMESA few calendar dates: USC visits Stan ford on Sept. 6; Oregon travels to UCLA on Oct. 11; Utah faces Oregon State on Oct. 16; Stanford visits Oregon on Nov. 1; and Stanford plays at UCLA on Nov. 28, one day before USC hosts Notre Dame in a huge weekend in Los Angeles.LEVIS FITThe title game is at San Franciscos new stadium after being at higher-seeded teams campus previously. Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott calls it a move for the fans, even if last-minute travel to the Bay Area doesnt sound terribly fan-friendly.KEY STATISTICLed by Marcus Mariota, Oregon ranked No. 2 nationally with 565 average yards a game and averaged 45.5 points per game. Fully healed, Mariota is among Ducks nine offensive returning starters.COMEBACK KIDSCalifornia and Colorado finished at the bottom of their respective divisions, and theyre picked to finish last again in the preseason media poll. The two former powerhouses still have optimism heading into the second seasons for coaches Sonny Dykes and Mike MacIntyre, but its tough to rebuild quickly in the Pac-12. Associated Press


FLORIDA STATEThe Seminoles will have an idea where they stand after their fourthweek matchup against Clemson in Tallahassee. Heisman winner Jameis Winston is the nations best athlete but hell need to remain focused to avoid late-season surprises against Notre Dame, Louisville, Miami and Florida. ALABAMAThe Crimson Tides schedule is among the SECs easiest. Its Eastern Division tie-ins are Florida and Tennessee, and coach Nick Sabans group has open dates before road games against Mississippi and LSU. It doesnt hurt to have Auburn visiting Tuscaloosa on the final Saturday of the regular season, where fans will be craving revenge.OKLAHOMAExpectations are high, especially after beating Alabama 45-31 in the Sugar Bowl last season to cap a strong finish that energized the rabid fan base. The toughest league games are at home (Baylor, Kansas State) and at a neutral site (Texas).OREGONOregon and quarterback Marcus Mariota, now healthy and the top Heisman front-runner not named Winston, will play host to Michigan State in Week 2, the first of four opponents ranked in the preseason Top 25.AUBURNThe Tigers reward for their dramafilled run to the BCS championship game last season is a brutal schedule. Auburn will travel to Georgia and Alabama in November, particularly difficult tests considering home games against both required last-second heroics last year.UCLAThe Bruins have an elite quarterback in Brett Hundley, who leads an offense that averaged 37 points per game last season; a favorable schedule with most key games at home; and a stout front seven on defense.MICHIGAN STATEThe Spartans chances of cruising through the Big Ten schedule became much easier when Ohio State quarter back Braxton Miller suffered a seasonending shoulder injury. But the conference outlook isnt the biggest issue. That Week 2 contest at Oregon is a major test that will propel the winner into early-season playoff conversations.SOUTH CAROLINAThe preseason pick to win the SEC East, the Gamecocks start with a new quarterback: fifth-year senior Dylan Thompson. Well know early whether the Gamecocks are legit: They have games against Texas A&M, Georgia and Missouriin the first month (all three are at home). Theres a road trip to Auburn in October, and also road games against Florida and Clemson.GEORGIANew quarterback Hutson Mason is a senior (43-of-75 passing last season for 619 yards, 3 TDs, 2 INTs). But the focal point is going to be tailback Todd Gurley and the rushing attack.BAYLORQuarterback Bryce Petty is one of the most exciting players in the nation, and he has perhaps the most electric wide receiver in stocky senior Antwan Goodley, whose speed and size (5-10, 220 pounds), make him tough to defend. The Bears will not take anyone by surprise this season, and theyll need to survive a tough schedule that includes road games against Texas and Oklahoma. Wire ReportsThe Power of FourStarting in mid-October, a panel of 13 football experts will begin meeting once a week to determine the four teams who will compete for the national championship in the rst College Football Playoff. Their goal is to choose the four best teams in the nation at the end of the regular season. But how does someone answer a question for which there will almost always will be more than one correct answer? We need both faith and reason, said committee member and West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck. We have to use our logical skills and the deductive skills that the people in that room have. But the college football world needs a little bit of faith that we all check our pasts at the door and we go about this in a very straightforward and honest manner. Where the College Football Playoff has the Bowl Championship Series beat is simply the number four. Twice as many teams will now enter the postseason with a chance to win the national championship. Most fans agree this is progress over an old system were deserving teams were left out. How will the new panel decide on top teams? Will so-called great teams still be left out? A rst look at 10 things about the process:By RALPH D. RUSSOASSOCIATED PRESSWith a playoff system nally at hand, plenty of questions remain COLLEGE FOOTBALLNATION Page 32 Friday, August 29, 2014 The Sun @SunCoastSports FORMATThe new system will have seven games, including two national semis and a final. The four other games will be bowl games played in showcase stadiums that hopefully will have compelling matchups. There will no longer be automatic bids for six conference champions, as was the case for the BCS. Now five conferences (the Big Ten, Big 12, SEC, ACC and Pac-12) have guaranteed a spot for their champions in either the semifinals or one of the other four bowls. There will be a guaranteed spot for the best team from the five FBS conferences (American Athletic, Mountain West, Sun Belt, Conference USA and Mid-American).SITESThe semifinals will rotate through six bowl games: the Rose (Pasadena, Calif.), Orange (Miami), Sugar (New Orleans), Fiesta (Glendale, Ariz.), Cotton (Arlington, Texas) and Peach (Atlanta). When those games dont host a semi, they will put on one of the glitzy bowls. The semifinals this season will be played in Pasadena and New Orleans. The championship game will be bid out like the NFLs Super Bowl. The first will be played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, home of the Dallas Cowboys and the Cotton Bowl.DATESThree games will be played consecu tively on New Years Eve and there will be another tripleheader on New Years Day. Adjustments will be made in the future if Dec. 31 or Jan. 1 falls on a Sunday to avoid conflict with the NFL. The championship game always will be played on a Monday, at least a week after the semifinals. This season the semifinals will be on Jan. 1. The Rose will kick off around 5 p.m. and the Sugar around 8:30 p.m. The championship game will be played the night of Jan. 12. The Rose and Sugar bowls will always be played on New Years Day, so in most seasons the semifinals will be played on New Years Eve.TVAll the games will be shown on ESPN, which reportedly paid about $7.2 billion for the entire package.MONEYAbout 85 percent of the revenues will go to the Power Five conferences. The other five FBS leagues will split the rest, but dont feel too badly for them. Most will be making about five times the amount they made with the BCS.CHANGESThe conferences and ESPN agreed to a 12-year deal based on a four-team playoff format. But the structure is there for it to grow, so stay tuned.THE HUMAN ELEMENTThe biggest change in the process is that 13 people not computer rankings are solely in charge of teams fates. The panel will have to effectively debate, compromise and even account for bias. On Oct. 21, the committee will release its first weekly rankings, a top 25 that will allow fans to see what the panel is collectively thinking down the stretch. Dave Bartoo, a data analyst, consultant and founder of, said he anticipates the selection committee will rank teams similarly to other poll panels. Traditionally, college football poll voters tend to create tiers based on the number of loses and wins and adjust to account for perceived schedule strength.STRENGTHOF SCHEDULEThe committee has been instructed to place an emphasis on strength of schedule, head-to-head matchups and conference championships. Strength of schedule has become a particular buzz phrase this offseason, with coaches and conferences already touting the virtues of their lineup. But Bartoo said its misguided to emphasize strength of schedule because calculating it accurately is not possible, no matter how its done.ANALYZING THE DATAThe committee will have a virtual bank vault of data, provided by a company called SportsSource Analytics, to help them judge teams. But the BCS taught college football fans there is no perfect way of picking the best teams. That will not change with the College Football Playoff. They will do the best they can and Im confident theyll pick the best four teams, said Bill Hancock, the executive director of the College Football Playoff. Some other group of 13 people might come up with different teams, but our group will spend a season evaluating teams unlike any other group.

The Irish hope quarterback Everett Golson, who is back after serving an academic suspension, can spark an offense that hasnt averaged better than 26.3 points a game under coach Brian Kelly.BOISE STATEThe most famous BCS buster now will try to have similar postseason fortune in the post-BCS world. Boise State went 8-5 matching its combined loss total from the previous five seasons and watched coach Chris Petersen leave for Washington. The Broncos still should compete with Utah State for the Mountain West title. BOWLING GREENQuarterback Matt Johnson and running back Travis Greene return after helping the Falcons go 10-4 and win a Mid-American Conference title. Bowling Green has enough talent to at least match that success under new coach Dino Babers. Bowling Green is a big underdog Sept. 20 at Wisconsin and has a tricky road game at Toledo.MARSHALLThe combination of a star quarterback (Rakeem Cato) and a favorable schedule have Marshall fans dreaming of a season they havent enjoyed since the Chad Pennington or Byron Leftwich years. Cato led Marshall to a 10-4 record and a Military Bowl victory last season. Marshall should be favored in every game.UTAH STATEThe Aggies hopes could hinge on whether QB Chuckie Keeton returns to form after tearing an ACL and MCL in October. Utah State went 9-5 and won the Poinsettia Bowl even though the injury limited Keeton to six games. The Aggies were 11-2 in 2012 when he played a full season. The bad news: The offensive line has one returning starter.NORTHERN ILLINOISThe Huskies lost quarterback Jordan Lynch, who was third in the Heisman voting, but return Chandler Harnish the MACs offensive player of the year in 2011 before Lynch won the award the past two seasons and eight other offensive starters. The showdown with Toledo, which may decide the division title, will be a home game.BRADY HOKEThe coach on the hottest seat has seen a steady decline in his three-year stint with Michigan: 11, eight and seven victories. Hoke is banking on new offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier to fix some problems. The Wolverines are loaded with highly rated recruits, but short on experience. Hoke might not be able to wait for the team to blossom.MATT CAMPBELLThe hottest coaching prospect begins his third full season as Toledos coach and at 34 remains one of the youngest coaches in the country. He is 17-9 with the Rockets, who are expected to contend for a MAC title again. Look for him to be coaching in a Big 5 conference before hes 40.TEVIN COLEMANIndianas running back averaged 7.3 yards per carry and scored 12 touchdowns. He led the nation in runs of 40 yards or more and would have surpassed 1,000 yards if an ankle injury didnt cost him three games. If Indiana, which went 5-7 last season, can reach the postseason for the first time since 2007, Colemans star will shine beyond the Big Tens expanded footprint.RIVALRIES ENDThe Irish have played Michigan all but six seasons since 1978; that rivalry ends Sept. 6. The annual game with Purdue, started in 1946, ends Sept. 13. Michigan State, on the schedule all but four seasons since 1948, doesnt play the Irish again until 2016. Traditional games against Navy, Stanford and Southern California remain. Wire Reports 485733 370 Commer ci al Court Veni ce 941-484-2337 Off I-75 Exit 193(Jacaranda Blvd.) Open Mon.

ARIAN FOSTERRunning back Houston Texans Foster, 28, one of the NFLs top running backs when healthy, consid ered retirement after a back injury limited him to eight games for the Texans. People die on the football field, Foster told ESPN. This is a really brutal sport. Going through an injury like that, being 27 years old, Im young, still Im at the prime of my career. Is it worth it to try to come back?ROBERT GRIFFIN IIIQuarterback Washington Redskins Griffin might be front-runner for the AP Comeback Player of the Year award. Since it began in 1998, 11 of the winners have been quarterbacks including the last six. The 24-year-old wasnt quite the same last season. After tearing his ACL in Washingtons playoff loss, Griffin struggled a year ago to be the electrifying playmaker he was in his first season. With the Redskins out of the playoff hunt, then-coach Mike Shanahan ended Griffins season and plugged in Kirk Cousins for the final three games. For me, personally, obviously, not having to come off of a knee surgery is a big boost for me, Griffin said, having an opportunity to work on my craft during the offseason.ROB GRONKOWSKITight end New England Patriots Gronkowski, 25, is still working his way back from a vicious two-year stretch in which he has had four forearm surgeries, a back injury and torn knee ligaments. I was rehabbing every day and it was miserable, he said. Hopefully that never happens again. And I dont wish anything on anyone like I had these past few years.PERCY HARVINWide receiver, returner Seattle Seahawks Harvin, 26, got a jumpstart on his comeback in February on the NFLs biggest stage. After missing most of the regular season and the playoffs with a surgically repaired hip and then a concussion, He returned the opening kickoff of the second half of the Super Bowl for a touchdown in helping Seattle beat Denver. I dont know if any football player can say theyre fully healthy playing football, but this is the best Ive felt in a long, long time, Harvin said when the Seahawks opened training camp in July.JULIO JONESWide receiver Atlanta Falcons Jones, 25, also was on his way to another Pro Bowl season with 41 catches in five games for the Falcons, but a broken right foot sent him to the sideline. He had a special cleat designed for him by Under Armour, a wider shoe that features a steel shank at the bottom for added support. I feel explosive, I still feel fast, he said. I still feel like I can beat one-on-one matchups.JEREMY MACLINWide receiver Philadelphia Eagles Maclin, 26, tore a knee ligament in training camp last year and missed the entire season. But after an extensive rehabilitation process, the Eagles are counting on their speedy wide receiver to make big plays again. He was out there every day in the offseason program and its just a matter of him getting his timing back, Eagles coach Chip Kelly said.DOUG MARTINRunning back Tampa Bay Buccaneers Martin, 25, one of the leagues rising running backs, ran for 1,454 yards and 11 touchdowns for Tampa Bay as a rookie in 2012. Last year, he struggled early, injured his shoulder and his sophomore season was done after just six games.VON MILLERLinebacker Denver Broncos Miller, 25, was suspended six games for a drug violation and then lost after nine games with a torn ACL that caused him to miss Denvers Super Bowl run. I feel like Ive been ready mentally back when the Super Bowl was here, Miller said. But the competitor in me is definitely ready to go.REGGIE WAYNEWide receiver Indianapolis Colts Wayne, 35, was off to a terrific start last year with 38 catches for 503 yards in seven games. A torn ACL kept him out the last half of the season. Even at 35, he said he is ready to rebound.THE 10TH MANPhiladelphias Mark Sanchez could have a shot, too, after missing all last season with the N.Y. Jets because of a shoulder injury but hes Nick Foles backup. The award usually goes to a player who has overcome an injury, but San Diegos Philip Rivers bucked that trend last year when he won it for bouncing back from a season in which he didnt play up to par. There are a few quarterbacks other than Griffin who could fit that description this year: Baltimores Joe Flacco, the N.Y. Giants Eli Manning, Oaklands Matt Schaub and the Jets Michael Vick a previous comeback winner if he overtakes Geno Smith. FIRST AND TENCOMEBACK PLAYERS10 preseason candidates (in alphabetical order)Broken bones. Torn ligaments. Subpar performances. They all combined to sideline 10 of the NFLs biggest stars a year ago, a lost season for several players who spent most of the year in the trainers room. Rob Gronkowski, Percy Harvin, Julio Jones and Robert Grifn III know all about that. So do Arian Foster, Doug Martin, Jeremy Maclin and Reggie Wayne. This could be their year for comeback honors.. A few defensive players could be contenders, too. Tampa Bays Geno Atkins (torn ACL), Houstons Brian Cushing (broken leg, torn ligament), Cincinnatis Leon Hall (torn Achilles tendon) and Denvers Demarcus Ware (career-low six sacks).PRO FOOTBALLFIRST AND TEN Page 36 Friday, August 29, 2014 The SunAP PHOTOWashington Redskins quarterback Robert Grin III runs away from Cleveland Browns defensive end Armonty Bryant during a preseason game in Landover, Md.

Darrelle Revis is one guy. Weve got to become a team, McCoy said. This is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, its not the Revises. AP PHOTOTampa Bay coach Lovie Smith watches his team play a preseason game against the Bualo Bills in Orchard Park, N.Y. Tampa Bay, which hasnt won a postseason game since 2002, is banking on Smith, red in 2012 after a successful nine-year run with the Bears, to restore the glory days.Does Smith spell relief?TAMPA Lovie Smith spent a year away from the NFL preparing for the challenge he faces in trying to transform the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers into winners. The Bucs have missed the playoffs the past six seasons. However, the former Chicago Bears coach is condent he has the team headed in the right direction after eight months of overhauling the roster and implementing other changes aimed at mak ing the franchise relevant again. He talks about winning games with a ball-hawking defense that not only creates opportunities for an efcient offense but scores points in bunches, too much the way the Bucs did in the late 1990s, when Smith was an assistant in Tampa Bay under Tony Dungy. What Smith often refers to as Buc Ball wasnt always pretty. Still, it was a big hit during a decade of excellence under Dungy and Jon Gruden, who led the club to its only Super Bowl title 12 years ago. Tampa Bay, which hasnt won a postseason game since, is banking on Smith, red in 2012 after a successful nine-year run with the Bears, to restore the glory days. The new Bucs delivered a glimpse of what the coach envisions during the third preseason game. The defense forced three rst-half turnovers, scored a touchdown and put the offense into position to score another en route to a 24-0 lead over Buffalo. You talk about Buc Ball, said Smith, who won three division titles, appeared in two NFC championship games and one Super Bowl in nine seasons in Chicago. Thats our version of Buc Ball right there. ...

The big question, though, is whether McCown is the answer at quarterback. Mike Glennon started 13 games as a rookie a year ago, playing well enough that coach Lovie Smith has said hes the teams quarterback of the future. Smith feels the second-year pro will benet from returning to the bench and watching an experienced QB run the show. Leslie Frazier wasnt out of work long after being red as Vikings coach after last season. Hes the new defensive coordinator and likes the pieces the Bucs already have in place and the prospect for building a dominant unit. An overhauled oensive line features four new starters, most notably Logan Mankins, the 10-year veteran acquired Tuesday in a trade with New England. So far, the line has been slow coming together, especially at guard, where Mankins would t right in. The Bucs havent had a pass rusher nish with double-digit sacks since Simeon Rice had 14 in 2005. Theyre counting on Michael Johnson to change that. He had 11 sacks for Cincinnati two years ago, but only 3 in 2013. Two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy is entering the nal year of his rookie contract and expects to be even better in Smiths defense, which will utilize him much the way the Bucs used Hall of Famer Warren Sapp. The teams top three draft picks receiver Mike Evans, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and running back Charles Sims also figure to get opportunities to contribute to an offense that ranked 30th in scoring and dead last in passing and total yardage in 2013. One of the more interesting stories could be the development of Olympic sprinter Je Demps, a 5-foot-7, 191-pound running back who gained 14 yards on his only carry a year ago. In the past, Demps has been slow to commit to playing football full-time. Bucs havent made playoffs since 2007, but Smith insists he isnt beginning rebuilding project. He believes that personnel changes he and first-year general manager Jason Licht made will meld with holdovers. Wire ReportsFIRST AND TENSTORYLINES10 to watch from the Bucs this season.

NFL TAMPA BAY The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 39 @SunCoastSports CLINTON MCDONALD Defensive tackle We understand weve got a long ways to go before we get to Carolina and a long way to go before we go to Phoenix for the Super Bowl, said McDonald, the new addi tion from the defending champion Seattle Seahawks, McDonald returned a fumble 17 yards for a touchdown in a preseason win against the Bills. LOGAN MANKINSGuard Acquired from New England, Mankins is a three-time captain with the Patriots, Mankins has earned six Pro Bowl berths and five All-Pro selections in his career. He also was selected to the New England Patriots All-2000s and 50th Anniversary teams. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Mankins was a firstround pick out of Fresno State in 2005.JOSH MCCOWNQuarterback The 12th-year veteran was signed as an unrestricted free agent from the Bears, reuniting with coach Lovie Smith. Played eight games last season and set career highs in comple tion percentage and passing touchdowns (13) and had a 13-to-1 touchdown-to-inter ception ratio.ALTERRAUN VERNERCornerback Verner injured his hamstring the third day of training camp and did not play in the preseason until the Bucs third game at Buffalo. Last season with Tennessee, he started all 16 games, had 57 tackles, five interceptions which were a career high, led the AFC and tied for fifth in the league and two fumble recoveries. MIKE GLENNONQuarterback Glennon is pleased with his preseason and feels like hes grown a lot from where he was this time last year. His completion percentage is up 10 points from last years preseason. If McCown doesnt prove the man for the job, Glennon will look to fasttrack his being the QB of the future.DASHON GOLDSONSafety Nothing has really changed about the Hawk, who signed a five-year, $41.25 million contract as a 49ers free agent a year ago. Hes not the fastest member of the secondary. Hes not the best tackler. Hes not even the best cover man. Its his uncanny sense of field that makes him such a complete player. ADRIAN CLAYBORNDefensive end A former first-round draft pick, Clayborn is in the final year of his rookie contract, and the Bucs declined to pick up an expensive option for 2015, making this a huge year for his value in the open market as a free agent in the spring. Clayborn believes his hyperbaric chamber helped him drop from 273 pounds to 257 in camp. SOLOMON PATTONWide receiver/kick returner Florida Gator and undrafted rookie Patton figures to return punts and kickoffs after the Bucs parted ways with Eric Wright in their first round of roster cuts. After being bypassed in the draft, the Bucs worked him out. They loved his sub-4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash. His size could become an issue, but he doesnt lack heart.VINCENT JACKSONWide receiver Somehow, despite the turmoil in Tampa last season, Jackson caught 78 passes for 1,224 yards and seven TDs. Now, he has a somewhat-ac complished veteran throwing to him in Josh McCown. He and McCown seem to have developed a chemistry. I think a lot of it has to do with (McCowns) savviness on the field, Jackson said.EVAN DIETRICH-SMITHCenter One of the teams biggest leaders, according to coach Lovie Smith, is imparting on his line mates this week. In March, he signed a four-year, $14.25 million contract with the Bucs. Pro Football Focus ranked him as the No. 1 center for pass blocking. Wire Reports SECOND AND TENTOP TALENT10 standout Bucs to watch for this season: C LINTON M C D ONAL D J OSH M C C OWN M IKE G LENNON A D RIAN C LAYBORN V IN C ENT J A C KSON the way we want to play. The old Bucs like what theyve seen, too. You talk about a way of consistency and how we do business. Thats gotten lost over the years. What is the Buccaneer way? Now, I think you can have an answer, Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Brooks, one of the stars of the 2002 championship team, said. Its not overly splashy, Brooks added, but its denitely been effective. Pro Bowl tackle Gerald McCoy, linebacker Lavonte David and safeties Mark Barron and Dashon Goldson head a group of talented holdovers on defense. Smith has installed his version of the Tampa 2 scheme that the Dungy and Gruden-led Bucs popularized in more prosperous times. Pass rusher Michael Johnson, tackle Clinton McDonald, and corner backs Alterraun Verner and Mike Jenkins were added to ll openings on defense in free agency. Meanwhile, Smith and general manager Jason Licht used the entire draft on offensive players to bolster the talent. Quarterback Josh McCown, a 35-year-old career backup signed in March, is coming off a season in which he threw for 13 touchdowns and just one interception while lling in for an injured Jay Cutler in Chicago. McDonald signed with the Bucs after helping Seattle win last seasons Super Bowl. He sees no reason why the Bucs shouldnt set their sights high, too.

This gures to be a critical year for coach Joe Philbin both in terms of the win-loss record and whether the Dolphins have another circus-like mess after last seasons bullying scandal.Moving forwardDAVIE Joe Philbin was not overly pleased following a recent preseason game, the coach of the Miami Dolphins somewhat befuddled with how his first-string offense moved the ball well but failed to find the end zone. Its a problem, which is the bad news. The good news is, its a football problem nothing at all like the issues that sunk the Dolphins a year ago. Theres been no whiff of real scandal around the Dolphins entering this By TIM REYNOLDSASSOCIATED PRESSMiami tries to put season riddled with scandal in pastTHE ESSENTIALSDIVISION: AFC East COACH: Joe Philbin (Third season, 15-17) HOME: Sun Life Stadium, Miami 2013 REWIND: 8-8, 2-4 in division, missed playoffs TICKETS: 1-888-FINS-TIX or RADIO: No local affiliate ONLINE: Since Miamis last playoff win Dec. 30, 2000 only three other teams (Detroit, Cleveland and Buffalo) have played in fewer postseason games than the Dolphins. PLAYOFFS? Dolphins more than just tweaked offensive and defensive schemes in offseason. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor is implementing plenty of motion, all designed to bring out strengths of quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Defensively, Miami must be better against run. WHATS NEWTannehill was decent as a rookie and solid last season, and Lazor should help him take another leap in Year 3. Lazor helped mold Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles into a breakout star last season, and hell be looking to do the same with Tannehill. LAZOR FOCUSTannehill and wide receiver Mike Wallace hooked up for pass plays of more than 40 yards only four times last season, twice in the same game. The teams quarterback and best receiver havent seemed to totally click yet in the deep game and both want to see that change. TANNEHILL AND WALLACEThe Dolphins picked up 61 rushing first downs last season, the lowest total in the NFL, and they got a combined six touchdowns from running backs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas. Adding Knowshon Moreno should help, and Miller continues to improve. NEED FOR BALANCETannehill was sacked 10 times more than any other quarterback last season, so first-year GM Dennis Hickey revamped the offensive line, signing left tackle Branden Albert, and guards Shelley Smith and Daryn Colledge, and drafting right tackle JaWuan James in the first round. PROTECTION PARAMOUNTMiamis defensive front likely some combination of Cameron Wake, Earl Mitchell, Randy Starks, Jared Odrick and Olivier Vernon to start the season could be one of the best in the NFL, even with Dion Jordan suspended for the seasons first four games. DEFENSIVE LINEOnly two kickers in the NFL missed more field goals than Caleb Sturgis did last season. The 25-year-old made 26 of 34 attempts in 2013, and he missed part of the preseason with a groin injury. He returned to practice this week and is said to be kicking well, but hell likely need to improve his percentages if he wants to hold onto the job. KICKING CONSISTENTLYMore than half the league has made the playoffs in the past two seasons, with the Dolphins not among them. So this would figure to be a critical year for coach Joe Philbin both in terms of the win-loss record and whether the Dolphins have another circus-like mess. PHILBIN WATCHBullying scandal that overshadowed last season is over, which means locker room should be better place. What happens on field, thats still in doubt. Miami has made one playoff trip in last 12 years, and hasnt won playoff game since 2000. If Lazors offense clicks quickly, that could change, though loss of Jordan for first four games could impair defense.

NFL MIAMI The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 41 @SunCoastSports SECONDAND TENTOP TALENT10 standout Dolphins to watch for this season: season, which right there suggests the 2014 edition of the team is ahead of last years group. The Dolphins became headline-makers for all the wrong reasons a year ago when a locker-room bullying mess turned into the storyline of the season, and the stigma of all that is something Miami cannot escape from quickly enough. You can have all the potential, Dolphins defensive lineman Jared Odrick said. But if youre not putting it to use, theres no reason to have it. And there may be the most accurate mantra for the 2014 Dolphins. Potential isnt in question, and the anticipation over what changes new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor will install this season is one of the biggest sources of optimism around the club. The defense could easily be better as well, so it would seem the pieces are in place for Miami to end a playoff drought that goes back to 2008. Its a good group of men, Philbin said. Its a high-character group. Im excited about what theyre going to be able to accomplish. Turning around the locker room atmosphere, thats one thing. Turning around fortunes, thats something else. Over the past 10 seasons, only five of the NFLs 32 clubs have fewer wins than the Dolphins. I think everybody really believes we can make the playoffs this year, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said. Theres a lot of positive energy right now.DOLPHINSFROM PAGE 40PHOTO BY BRAD BARR/USA TODAY SPORTSMiami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake celebrates a sack against the Dallas Cowboys in a preseason game at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens. KNOWSHON MORENORunning back Moreno, with his ability to hit the holes hard and break tackles, gives the ground game ranked 26th in the NFL last season at 90 yards per game a noticeable boost. Moreno was side lined by left knee surgery in June, but his first preseason carry was a 19-yard run.MIKE POUNCEYCenter Pounceys surgically repaired hip was recently re-evaluated by specialists, and he is hoping to receive medical clearance. Pouncey was initially informed his rehab would take two to three months. Hes beginning his third month this week, and is expected to be fully recovered by the Dolphins Sept. 28 game against Oakland.BRIAN HARTLINEWide receiver Hartline has put together back-to-back seasons with 1,000 yards receiving, and figures to be one of quarterback Ryan Tannehills favorite targets again this season. He will most likely see more competition for looks as the team has improved its depth at wide receiver.CORTLAND FINNEGANCornerback The free-agent acquisition (St. Louis Rams), paired with holdover Brent Grimes, should give a boost to a secondary that was middle of the road last season. The Dolphins are banking on Finnegan having a bounceback season as they search for another veteran presence in the secondary.MIKE WALLACEWide receiver Rather than staying on one side of the field this season, Wallace will often be on the move in search of mismatches. The goal is to spring Wallace for more of the big plays that were his trademark with the Pittsburgh Steelers but largely disap peared during his first season with Miami. DION JORDANDefensive end Jordan will serve a four-game suspension (PEDs) when the season begins so coaches have been trying to get him as much time as possible in preseason. Personally, my mindset is just come out here every day, whether Im on the field or Im in the meeting rooms or when Im away the facility, Im going to make sure Im ready to play ball on a daily basis, he said. BRANDEN ALBERTLeft tackle Pass protection remains a huge concern and Miami is counting on Albert, the former Kansas City Chiefs standout, to shore up that front and protect quarterback Ryan Tannehills blind side. The Dolphins gave up a franchise-record 58 sacks last season and they will have five new starters, including Albert, the seventh-highest paid left tackle in the NFL, to open the season.CALEB STURGISKicker The former Florida Gator s status for the season opener against New England had been up in the air throughout much of the month because of a groin injury. However, he returned to practice on Tuesday appears to be ready for the season. CAMERON WAKEDefensive end Showed he was regular-season ready by recording two sacks in preseaon game against Dallas starter Tony Romo. Looking to get back to the form he showed two season ago when he recorded 15. Injuries limited him to 8 last season.EARL MITCHELLDefensive lineman Coach Joe Philbin has liked everything (Mitchells) done since the day hes gotten here. Mitchell started the Dolphins first preseason games and had five tackles in 44 snaps. His high-energy play should help him in his role of replacing Paul Soliai on the defensive line. Wire Reports

He hasnt wavered since. Not after the team selected Blake Bortles with the third pick in the NFL draft. Not after the rookie showed signicant progress during organized team activities and training camp. And not after Bortles played so well in the preseason, turning heads in the locker room, in the stands and around the league. Bradley has made it clear that Henne will start the season opener, and theres no reason to believe the second-year coach will change his stance before the Sept. 7 game at Philadelphia. We have a lot of faith in Chad, Bradley said. Chad is doing really well. The efciency, the command of the offense, the different looks that hes seeing and the adjustment that he makes. Its the whole package. Its not uncommon for NFL teams to botch quar terback decisions, whether they get muddled inside the building or in the court of public opinion.

Only four teams have a longer playoff drought. They might not be a playoff team yet, but they are on the rise. PLAYOFF DROUGHT Jaguars still in rebuilding mode, but have reason for hope with Blake Bortles, Marquise Lee and other youngsters. Chad Henne will be under center for opener, with Bortles waiting to take over and possibly give franchise its first big-time QB in more than a decade. WHATS NEW?Brad Meester held the position since 2002, anchoring the line. Theres little doubt he will be missed, especially with Mike Brewster failing to secure the starting spot in camp. Journeyman Jacques McClendon and rookie Luke Bowanko are vying for the job. CENTER OF ATTENTIONCecil Shorts III cant seem to stay healthy. Ace Sanders is suspended the first four games. Rookie Allen Robinson has played sparingly. Jacksonvilles receivers have been a constant topic during training camp and not for positive reasons. WR WATCHNo NFL team has fewer sacks over the past five seasons. The Jags have totaled a league-low 151 sacks. Theyre counting on former Seattle starters Chris Clemons and Red Bryant, as well as youngsters Andre Branch, Ryan Davis and Chris Smith to turn things around in 2014. SAD SACKS AGAIN?Gus Bradley has quickly earned respect. In an ESPN survey of eight GMs, four former GMs, six coordinators, four posi tion coaches, four executives, and four personnel directors, Bradley ranked 19th among coaches impressive since he has been a head coach for one year. BRADLEY MEANS BUSINESSFor the second consecutive season, the Jaguars play four of their first six games on the road. GM Dave Caldwell complained to the league about the starting slate, especially since the team feels it has a home-field advan tage early because of Floridas sweltering heat. EARLY SCHEDULEThe Jaguars committed to playing four home games in London for four years, starting in 2013 they lost 42-10 to the 49ers. This season, the Jaguars will be at home against the Dallas Cowboys on Nov. 9 at Wembley Stadium. LONDON CALLINGLest anyone think the Jaguars are considering a permanent move across the pond, the team and the city spent $63 million in stadium upgrades in Jacksonville, hoping to create a buzz and sell more tickets. So far, its worked. The worlds largest scoreboards (60 feet tall, 362 feet wide with 35.5 million LED bulbs) and a two-story party deck.

NFL JACKSONVILLE The Sun Friday, August 29, 2014 Page 43 @SunCoastSports SECONDAND TENTOP TALENT10 standout Bucs to watch for this season: notably in 2011 when David Garrard was cut hours after being introduced as the starter at a kickoff luncheon days before the opener. Bradley doesnt want to make a similar misstep. Gus has done a great job, especially with you guys in the media in just staying true to his word, Henne said. Whatever hes telling you, hes telling us. There are no different stories. Thats whats great about him. Hes upfront and honest and thats why we trust in him and we believe in him and we ght for him out on the eld. Jacksonville eventually will turn things over to Bortles, but theres no timetable for the switch. Bradley and general manager Dave Caldwell have tried to foster a pressure-free environment for Bortles as he makes the transition from a college spread offense to a prostyle system. They insist Bortles will take over when hes ready. We want to see fast progress by him, where things are coming faster to him, Bradley said. We believe thats happening. Hes not there yet, but we think we can continue it. In the meantime, the veteran Henne will be under center. Gus and I have sat down many times and he said Im the guy, Henne said. Until they tell me otherwise, I just go out there and prepare like Im the starter and play well. I understand my spot. If we play well and win games, then (I) stay in. If I dont, then things will happen. All I can control is game by game and how I go out there and play.JAGUARSFROM PAGE 42 AP PHOTOJacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles rolls out during warm-ups for a preseason game against the Detroit Lions in Detroit. Bortles, the backup to Chad Henne, played so well in the preseason he turned heads in the locker room, in the stands and around the league. CHRIS CLEMONSDefensive end One of the reasons the Jaguars signed the former Seattle Seahawk was for his ability to get to the quarterback. In four seasons with the Seahawks, Clemons recorded 38 sacks, tied for the 12th-best mark from 2010-13, and hell be paired with former Seahawks teammate Red Bryant.

He seems like a perfect fit for the Jaguars, who parted with Maurice Jones-Drew.

He also made eight starts and is a bigger corner (5-11, 201) who fits with what Gus Bradley wants to do on defense. ALLEN HURNSWide receiver The undrafted free agent from the University of Miami has been a real steal, leading the Jaguars in receiving in the preseason after leading the Hurricanes with 62 receptions last year and setting a single-season school record with 1,162 receiving yards. He all but locked up the No. 3 receiver spot behind Cecil Shorts and Marqise Lee.LUKE JOECKELTackle The second overall pick in the 2013 draft, another ESPN top 50 breakout candidate, is back from a season-ending ankle injury that forced him to miss 11 games last season.

RENTON, Wash. It started on the rst day back during offseason workouts. There was no acknowledgment of the case being constructed in the lobby where the Seattle Seahawks rst Lombardi Trophy would reside. Or of the giant banner hanging in the indoor practice facility listing the name of every player and coach a part of the 43-8 Super Bowl triumph. Pete Carrolls way of humbling his players still on a high from earning the rst title in franchise history came from returning to the most basic elements. Things as rudimentary as cradling the football properly in your arm as a ball carrier. Or as a defender, ways to knock the ball free. Seems simplistic, almost condescending to profession al athletes. But that wasnt the point. It was a conscious effort by Carroll to reprogram his team. Repeating doesnt matter unless we take care of our business right now, wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. There was no talk about repeating. It was going back to the basics. Dont be mistaken. The end goal, albeit unspoken, is to be the rst team since the New England Patriots 10 years ago to become repeat champions. Why is Seattle more likely than others to accomplish the feat? At least in part, because of Carroll. He went through the process of winning a title and trying to do it again at Southern California. The blueprint is similar, if not the same. I love this opportunity that we have, Carroll said. We are so fortunate to have this chance to come back after a season like that to see if we can nd that kind of discipline and nd that kind of ability to focus. Its challenging, its difcult, it hasnt happened a lot and we are going to see what happens. Heres what to watch this season: THE FIXER Carroll believes Russell Wilson should be better in his third year. Hes elevated his ability to see whats going on and anticipate and read defenses, Carroll said. Hes real excited about that because hes seeing things better than he has before. BRING THE BOOM Seattles secondary remains the best in football. The Seahawks insist that will not change even with safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor and cornerback Richard Sherman getting big contract extensions in the past two years. Cornerback Byron Maxwell will be in the spotlight moving into the role of full-time starter opposite Sherman and knowing hell get picked on. SUPERSONIC Speed could be the element added to Seattles offense that was never fully on display a season ago. Percy Harvin will be used all over the eld as Seattle tries to get him the ball in space and use his quickness. But hes not alone. Second-round pick Paul Richardson could be just as fast as Harvin, but in a more traditional wide receiver role. And Seattle intends on getting running back Christine Michael more involved after he barely saw the eld last season. Being explosive is what we want to do, Wilson said. We want to be able to get the ball in the right guys hand at the right time, make the right decisions and be on time with it and throw a great pass where they can get upeld and make a play. INSIDE JOB The unit that took the big gest hit in the offseason was Seattles defensive line, losing three main contributors. Resigning Michael Bennett was vital to pair with Cliff Avril, but the signing of veteran Kevin Williams could be a coup. The addition of Williams provides Seattle the exibility to play a bigger run-stufng grouping of three defensive tackles, and continue the rotation of linemen that was so successful last season. THIN AIR If Seattle is to join a rare fraternity to reach consecutive Super Bowls, it will have to manage a schedule with no rhythm early and that gets extremely difcult late. After the Thursday night opener with Green Bay, the Seahawks face San Diego and host a Super Bowl rematch with Denver on consecutive Sundays before the earliest bye week in the league. Seattle returns from its bye for a Monday night road game at Washington. NFC EAST Eli Manning has two Super Bowl rings. Tony Romo makes the most money. RG3 is arguably the most talented. Nick Foles? Well, he just might be the best quarterback in the NFC East. Im not trying to be someone else, Im just taking it in stride, Foles said. This year is a little different, and theres going to be a little more on my plate, but its just been a gradual growth through the last couple years to get to this point. And then I just have to continue to grow each and every day and have fun doing it. Foles had one of the best statistical seasons in NFL history as he led the Philadelphia Eagles to a division title in his sophomore season and Chip Kellys rst as coach. Foles replaced Michael Vick in October, went 8-2 as the starter and nished with 29 touchdown passes and two interceptions in 11 starts, including a playoff loss to AP PHOTOSeattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll smiles during training camp in Renton, Wash. Carrolls blueprint for keeping the Seahawks among the elite involved locking up All-Pros cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Earl Thomas, plus receiver Doug Baldwin to contract extensions, re-signing defensive end Michael Bennett, and never resting on what happened last season.Seeking some rare airSeahawks look to become first repeat champion since Patriots BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSJust off Highway 101, the San Fran cisco 49ers move into Levis Stadium and try to regain their perch atop the division. Colin Kaepernick will look to Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Stevie Johnson. Defensively there are more concerns. LAST EXIT L AST E XIT The defense Jeff Fisher has built in St. Louis is impressive. However, it will likely not be enough given the seasonending injury to quarterback Sam Bradford. The Rams added receiver Kenny Britt, and rookie Greg Robinson should solidify the offensive line. MAN OF THE HOUR M AN OF TH E H OUR Quarterback Carson Palmer has another year in Bruce Arians system, Larry Fitzgerald remains an elite receiver and Andre Ellington established himself at the teams top rusher. But the team is struggling to replace Karlos Dansby and Daryl Washington, and Darnell Dockett tore his ACL. BIG WAVE B IG W AV E Chip Kelly made his boldest move when he released DeSean Jackson after the best season of his career. The Eagles couldnt even get a low-round draft pick for Jackson, so they cut him. Theyre counting on Jeremy Maclin, and hoping Riley Cooper builds on his breakout year. REPLACING D-JAX R E P L ACING D-J AX Jay Gruden is the eighth coach employed by owner Dan Snyder in 16 years in Washington. Gruden brings a West Coast style and a reputation for being a players coach. Getting along with Robert Griffin III is one thing. Figuring out how to win is another. EIGHT IS ENOUGH E IGHT IS E NOUGH Remember the Doomsday Defenses that led Dallas to a pair of Super Bowl titles in the 1960s and 70s? These Cowboys are far from it. The leagues most porous defense in 2013 lost its best player for the season when line backer Sean Lee had knee surgery in the offseason. DOOMED DEFENSE D OO MED D E F E NS E The Saints upgraded their secondary with three-time Pro Bowl safety Jairus Byrd and 12-time Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey, though its unclear how those moves will pan out. Byrd had offseason back surgery, and Bailey was limited by a leg injury in camp.SUSPECT SECONDARY S USP E CT S E CON D ARY The Carolina Panthers lost their top four wide receivers from last year including Steve Smith, the franchises all-time leader in receptions and touchdowns.

New Orleans. He set an NFL record for best TD/interception ratio and his passer rating of 119.2 was the third highest in NFL history. Manning is coming off his worst season for the Giants, who went 7-9. He threw a leaguehigh 27 interceptions and had a dismal 69.4 passer rating. Romo is coming back from surgery for a herniated disk that sidelined him for the Cowboys winnertake-all season nale against the Eagles. Robert Grifn III struggled in his return from an ACL injury after a fantastic rookie season and the Redskins went 3-13, costing coach Mike Shanahan his job. This division may only have one team nish with a winning record, and 9-7 might get the crown. So whichever quarter back has the best regular season among the four could make the difference. NFC SOUTH Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers will need to rewrite history if they hope to repeat as NFC South champions this season. It will not be easy. No team has won back-toback NFC South division titles since the league realigned in 2002. The Panthers are in a division stacked with formidable foes not to mention tremendously talented quarterbacks in Atlanta and New Orleans. And Tampa Bay is considered a dark horse under new coach Lovie Smith. The Saints and Falcons have grabbed headlines with their offseason upgrades, while the salary cap-strapped Panthers have released star wide receiver Steve Smith, saw veteran left tackle Jordan Gross retire, and lost a handful of key free agents. Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis views the past as a plus. A lot of people are ruling us out right now based on the history of the division and thats OK with us, said Davis, entering his 10th season with the Panthers. We do our best work when were not expected to do anything. Were not going to do a bunch of trash talk, were just going to go out and show it. Carolina boasts the leagues No. 2 defense led by middle linebacker and Defensive Player of the Year Luke Kuechly. However, questions remain about an offense that lost four linemen to retirement and its top four receivers. But the Panthers arent the only team with concerns. The Saints are worried about a leaky, injury-plagued secondary. The Falcons have concerns about protecting quarterback Matt Ryan and replacing his favorite red zone target, Tony Gonzalez. And the Bucs are banking on 35-year-old journey man quarterback Josh McCown to boost their offense. I think the South is the most competitive division in the entire NFL, Falcons coach Mike Smith said. Smith points to Drew Brees in New Orleans, Newton in Carolina and Ryan in Atlanta as three big reasons. We have a division that has three outstanding quarterbacks, and this is a quarterback-driven league, Smith said. Theyve all been to the Pro Bowl in the last three or four years. The NFC South has been remarkably balanced since 2002, with each team winning three division titles. We want to take the lead, Davis said. NFC NORTH Green Bays grab of the NFC North for the third straight season, giving the Packers seven of the 12 titles since the division formed, was predictable. That unremarkable 8-7-1 record they won it with was the real surprise. Chicago took a step back, too, and Minnesota plummeted badly. Detroit was the only team with more victories than the previous year, but still had a losing mark and red its coach. Such mediocrity, though, should not mask the abundance of elite talent that still exists in this quartet. From stars Aaron Rodgers, Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson to up-and-comers Cordarrelle Patterson, Alshon Jeffrey and Eddie Lacy, with standouts like Reggie Bush, Brandon Marshall and Randall Cobb somewhere in between, the NFC North could probably eld a Pro Bowl offense all by itself. The Packers, Lions and Bears all ranked in the top eight in the league in total yards, and even the Vikings with their persistent quar terback problems nished 13th, higher than ve playoff teams. For this division to again produce a true championship-caliber team, keeping those key players healthy all year is the rst prerequisite. NFCFROM PAGE 44 NORTH 1. Packers 2. Bears 3. Vikings 4.

Whenever the Seahawks needed a play, Wilson came through. COLIN KAEPERNICKQuarterback San Francisco 49ers Kaepernick landed that big-money new contract he wanted during the offseason, and now its time to back it up. In June, the fourth-year QB received a $126 million, six-year extension through the 2020 season. The deal includes $61 million in guaranteed money. Kaepernick insists he has come a long way in our players having confidence in me.PATRICK PETERSONCornerback Arizona Cardinals Patrick Peterson, the self-proclaimed best cornerback in the NFL, is now the high est-paid cornerback in the NFL, signing a six-year, $70 million contract, with $48 million guaranteed. A Pro Bowl selection all three of his pro seasons, Peterson wont return punts and have any plays for him on offense. JASON PIERRE-PAULDefensive end New York Giants Pierre-Paul is the key on defense. After posting 16 sacks in 2011, back and shoulder injuries dropped his total to 6 in 2012 and two last year, when he played in 11 games. He played well against the Steelers in the second preseason game, but has not shown much in recent weeks. Heading into his fifth pro season, the Giants need him to step up. NICK FOLESQuarterback Philadelphia Eagles Foles had one of the best statistical seasons in NFL history while leading the Eagles to an NFC East title in his sophomore year. Foles went 8-2 as the starter and set an NFL record for best TD/interception ratio and his passer rating of 119.2 was the third-highest in NFL history.KELVIN BENJAMINWide receiver Carolina Panthers First-round pick Benjamin has fans excited about the future rather than dwelling on the loss of Steve Smith, the franchises all-time leading receiver. The 6-5, 240-pound Benjamin had a terrific training camp and made a diving grab in the end zone in the teams first preseason game against Buffalo. Hes devel oped a close bond with QB Cam Newton.JULIO JONESWide receiver Atlanta Falcons Its vital to keep Jones on the field after he played only five games because of a foot injury. The Falcons brought him along slowly in the preseason. A healthy Jones is one of the leagues top receivers, a unique mix of size and speed who is impossible to cover one-on-one.JAY CUTLERQuarterback Chicago Bears The Bears improved from 29th to fifth in passing and 28th to No. 8 in total offense last season, their first under coach Marc Trestman. Throw in the fact they have all their starters back and things sure look good for Jay Cutler if he stays healthy. Thats a big if. Cutler hasnt played a full 16 games since 2009, his first season in Chicago.NDAMUKONG SUHDefensive tackle Chicago Bears Suh is entering the final year of his contract, and talks subsided around the start of training camp. Even if Suh has another big season on the defensive line, the pressure will be on the Lions to take full advantage, since theres a chance they could lose him during the offseason.JAIRUS BYRDSafety New Orleans Saints After elective back surgery, Byrd was finally cleared for full contact in time for the third preseason game. His knack for being around the ball has stood out since his return, including his difficult, one-handed intercep tion of Brees, which the quarterback called a ridiculous play.

Andrew Luck has his first division title since replacing Peyton Manning, and the Colts have had a whole offseason to work Trent Richardson into the offense. But Reggie Wayne has to prove he can return from a torn right ACL at age 35. DOMINATING COLTS D OMINATING C OLTS Mike Pettine takes over as Cleveland is revved up by Johnny Manziel, stoking hopes that the Browns finally have a franchise QB. He lost the starting job to Brian Hoyer, but gained attention for raising his middle finger toward the Washington bench during a preseason game. HERES JOHNNY H ERE S J O H NNY Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg are giving Geno Smith every opportunity to establish himself as the teams QB, even with Michael Vick on the roster. The Jets should be improved on offfense with the additions of WR Eric Decker and RB Chris Johnson.SOARING JETS? S OARING J ETS ? John Elway committed more than $100 million to add defensive free agents DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward, then drafted Bradley Roby in the first round. Peyton Manning had to say goodbye to WR Eric Decker and RB Knowshon Moreno. NO REST N O R EST No other division has sent as many teams to the playoffs over the last six years as the AFC North. A dozen teams reached the playoffs over that span, two more than any other division. The Norths streak of five straight years with multiple playoff teams ended last season. THE DOMINANT DIVISON T H E D OMINANT D IVISON Buffalos 14-season playoff drought is the NFLs longest active streak. Thats a trend second-year coach Doug Marrone is eager to end. The Bills brought in Sammy Watkins, Mike Williams, Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown to help QB EJ Manuel.BUMBLING BILLS B UM B LING B ILLS Tennessee beat Detroit to hire the man who took Arizona to the Super Bowl. Ken Whisenhunt has made changes throughout the building and hired Ray Horton as his defensive coordinator. QB Jake Locker, who has missed 14 games as a starter in two seasons.TITANIC CHANGES T ITANI C C H ANGES The salary cap-tapped Chiefs endured the price of that success in free agency. Kansas City is counting on their rookie class to make imme diate contributions to help them build off an 11-5 season that ended with a playoff collapse at Indianapolis. MARKET CORRECTION? M ARKET C ORRE C TION ? GM Reggie McKenzie is hoping the route back to respectability goes through the reclamation projects hes added. Discarded or unwanted by their former teams, players with a history of success in the NFL have gathered in Oakland in hopes of resurrecting their careers.RECLAMATION RAIDERS R E C LAMATION R AI D ERS The Ravens finished 30th in rushing last seaon last in yards per carry. Baltimore brought in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, has Joe Flacco moving around more in the pocket, but its the running game that will decide whether the Ravens can shake off their only non-playoff season since John Harbaugh took over in 2008. RUN, RAVENS, RUN R UN R AVENS R UN FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Tom Brady and his receiving corps are more comfortable in their second season together. The star quarterback also may have his biggest target back for the New England Patriots opener. If Rob Gronkowski can stay healthy after two injury-plagued seasons, the NFLs third-highest scoring team last year should be even more potent. And the Patriots prospects of winning their 12th AFC East title in 14 years would become even brighter. Gronkowski has been making progress after ACL and MCL surgery on his right knee, but he hasnt played in a preseason game while taking limited contact in practice. After playing just 18 regular-season games over the past two seasons, the tight end plans to play all 16. The more that hes able to do and help us, the better were going to be, Brady said. Hes working his way back, and its been great to have him out there for more and more activity, and, hopefully, that continues because hes a big part of our offense. The rst time Brady threw a pass to him, Gronkowski caught it for a 1-yard touchdown as a rookie in the 2010 opener. He and Brady have connected on 223 other throws. In 2011, Gronkowski set NFL records for tight ends with 90 receptions, 1,327 yards receiving, 18 total touchdowns and 17 touchdown catches. Gronkowski missed the rst six games last year after forearm and back surgeries, and the last three with the knee injury. In training camp, he caught passes on the side before taking the next step, catching them on the eld. Its denitely huge to get going and be on the same page as the quarterback, Gronkowski said, just all on the same page as the offense as a whole. Ive been working with Tom since Ive been out here, but we havent been doing it versus the defense. So it was good to be right out there and boom, just like wed never missed (a beat). Three of Bradys top four wide receivers last year, when the Patriots (12-4) lost the AFC championship game to the Denver Broncos, were new to the team: veteran Danny Amendola and rookies Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins. Julian Edelman had 105 catches after having just 69 total in his other four seasons. All the guys that came last year, there was a lot that was forced on their plate and theyve been able to handle it, Brady said. Theres not as many things you need to go over, (but) youre still trying to make improvements. Other things to watch from the Patriots: IMPROVED DEFENSE Opposing receivers should have a tough time against the new starting cornerbacks. Darrelle Revis is one of the best at that position and Brandon Browner is one of the biggest. Browner must sit out the rst four games after being suspended for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy. But last years starter, Alfonzo Dennard, and Logan Ryan and Kyle Arrington are solid replacements. The Patriots have two key defensive players back from injuries that sidelined them most of last season: tackle Vince Wilfork and linebacker Jerod Mayo. Stevan Ridley is the top rusher but has lost six of his eight fumbles the past two seasons. Fourth-round pick James White is a rookie. That leaves Shane Vereen, drafted in 2011 like Ridley, as the most reliable running back. He emerged as a receiving threat last season with 47 catches, three for touchdowns. In last Friday nights 30-7 preseason win over the Panthers, Vereen caught two touchdown passes. Hes a very dependable guy, coach Bill Belichick said. Three veterans who built solid careers elsewhere, defensive linemen Tommy Kelly and Will Smith and linebacker James Anderson, were released Monday.

second-year player Michael Buchanan should see playing time along with fellow youngsters Chris Jones and Sealver Siliga on the line. At linebacker, the Patriots have Darius Fleming, who spent his other two seasons on San Franciscos injured reserve list, and 2013 draftee Steve Beauharnais. OFFENSIVE LINE SHIFTS The offensive line needs to improve over last year, when several veterans struggled. Two of them, Ryan Wendell and Dan Connolly, are competing for the center position. Promising youngsters Jordan Devey, Josh Kline and Bryan Stork could make an impact, but standout guard Logan Mankins was traded to Tampa Bay on Tuesday. SIMPLE DIVISION The Patriots gure to start the regular season with a win at Miami and end it with a win over another division opponent, at home against Buffalo. In between, they should pile up enough victories to continue their domination of the AFC East. Only six of the Patriots 16 games are against teams with winning records last season. AFC WEST As good as any division a year ago, the AFC West is about to get tested. Big time. The AFC West sported three playoff teams last season, with late-charging San Diego and resurgent Kansas City joining Super Bowl-bound Denver in the postseason. The path to the playoffs in 2014 has a few more potholes: The AFC West has to play the NFC West, where the Super Bowl champion Seahawks, Cardinals, Rams and 49ers boast some of the nastiest defenses the NFL has to offer. Denver is trying to become the rst team in four decades to win a Super Bowl the year after losing it, and GM John Elway suggested that facing this fearsome foursome will benet the Broncos. Youve got to be able to play physical with physical teams, Elway said. And thats always a goal is to be able to have a team that physically can stay with everybody in this league. Its a tough division thats a very physical division, so thatll be a great test for us. And for the rest of the AFC West. AFC NORTH They do things a little differ ently in the AFC North. Theyre patient with their coaches and quarterbacks well, with the exception of Cleveland, which is in a league of its own when it comes to change. They develop a style and stick with it, win or lose. And its worked. The AFC North is coming off what amounts to a down year for the NFLs most successful division over the past six years. Only one team reached the playoffs Cincinnati, which lost in the opening round for the third year in a row. The Bengals response? Give the coach and the quarterback contract extensions. You see some of the teams in the North, just the way they go about the game is a little different from some teams across the league, Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth said. Defending champion Cincinnati has undergone the fewest offseason changes, aiming for a franchise-record fourth straight trip to the play offs. The Steelers and Ravens have adjusted their rosters but stayed with their overriding philosophies. And then theres Cleveland, where the only thing that hasnt got lost in the shufe is the nonstop losing. AFC SOUTH Chasing the Indianapolis Colts never has been easy in the AFC South. First, the Titans, Jaguars and Texans all tried, and failed, to slow down Peyton Manning. Now, Andrew Luck has taken his turn atop the division. You know when you have a great player like Andrew at quarterback that everyones going to set the bar high for achievement, Colts owner Jim Irsay said. So we won the division, we won a playoff game, and now its just a question of trying to get deeper. But the rst goal, of course, is to try to win the division and thats going to be tough. Its a tough division, all three teams have improved. But I really think the mindset and the atmosphere and the desire to win a championship is there. The Colts have won eight of the last 11 division titles. The Titans feel they are close after losing twice to Indianapolis last season by a combined 10 points while using a backup quarterback. New Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt also has shaken up the Tennessee franchise from top to bottom. Whisenhunt wants to host a playoff game, so the Titans are targeting the defending AFC South champs. Thats whats important for us right now, Whisenhunt said.ANTONIO GATESTight end San Diego Chargers Gates returns, seeking his first NFL championship. Even if Gates has lost a step, he still has sure hands he had a team-high 77 catches last year. The former Kent State hoops star can still position his body to pick up first downs and remains a big threat inside the 20-yard line.EMMANUEL SANDERSWide receiver Denver Broncos Sanders, who replaces Eric Decker at wide receiver for the Broncos, has better separation and speed than Decker. However, a nagging thigh injury kept him from developing a good chemistry with Peyton Manning, who finally texted him and told him hed better get back on the field.JAMAAL CHARLESRunning back Kansas City Chiefs Charles signed an $18.1 million, two-year extension with the Chiefs before training camp largely as a reward for last season. He had nearly 2,000 yards from scrimmage and scored 19 touchdowns. He will be counted upon just as heavily this season.BRIAN HOYERQuarterback Cleveland Browns As a kid, Hoyer went to Browns games with his dad and hes now living out his boyhood dream. Unfortunately, unless he emerges from the first three games with at least two wins, Pettine could switch to Johnny Manziel. Hoyer has defied long odds before he was waived by three teams in nine months and the 28-year-old doesnt have the luxury of time.JUSTIN TUCKERKicker Baltimore Ravens The Ravens most valuable offensive weapon last season didnt throw a pass or run the football. Tucker went 38 for 41 on field goal tries, including a 61-yarder to beat Detroit in a must-win December game. Tucker scored 140 of Baltimores 320 points. A.J. GREENWide receiver Cincinnati Bengals Three-time Pro Bowl selection A.J. Green hired a chef in the offseason and put on upper-body weight to help him fend off defenders better. Hes looking to do even more as hes coming off another sensational season fifth in the NFL in yards receiving (1,426), sixth in catches (98). His 260 catches are the most in NFL history for a player in his first three seasons.SAMMY WATKINSWide receiver Buffalo The rookie made numerous highlight-reel catches, including a one-handed grab after stumbling while making his cut, in the first three weeks of camp before being sidelined by bruised ribs. Watkins is expected to be ready for the opener.GENO SMITHQuarterback New York Jets The Jets went into the offseason determined to give Smith every opportunity to show he deserved to be the starter. They also brought in Michael Vick to push Smith, as well as to mentor him. Last season, he threw 12 touch down passes and 21 interceptions. But Smith also had promising moments, particularly during a four-game stretch in which the Jets went 3-1 to end the season 8-8.JAKE LOCKERQuarterback Tennessee Titans Locker has shown glimpses of talent through his first three seasons mixed with frustration over a string of injuries. The Titans havent picked up his option for 2015, but they are banking on Locker to end their five-year playoff drought. He has missed 14 of 32 games since being selected the starter.D.J. SWEARINGERSafety Houston Texans Second-year safety D.J. Swearinger will not adjust his hard-hitting style just because of a highlight thats getting plenty of attention. Swearinger delivered a shoulder-first shot on Wes Welker in Saturdays preseason game in Denver, drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Welker left the game with a concussion. I havent thought (to) change, Swearinger said.

Move over, Andy Warhol. Theres a new pop artist in town. Recently retired from the U.S. Air Force and new to Port Charlotte, Ron Klein, used to being active, was at loose ends, frustrated with the lack of challenges in his new life. He thrived on activity, on the intensity and challenges of his long military career. I retired for one day, he said with a laugh. Then I bought lawn mowers and started a lawn care and landscaping business. That business is growing like grass in the rainy season, but it was a little tinkering on the side that led to his next big hobby landscape art. Klein started creating a decoration for his driveway by tying together three wooden posts. Its too plain, he said as he looked at it. So he added From Air Force to artistBy BARBARA PIERCEHERALD CORRESPONDENTHERALD PHOTOS BY BARBARA PIERCERon Klein retired to Port Charlotte after a career in the U.S. Air Force. He and his wife, Sharon, started a new landscaping business and also create custom decora tions, many with a tropical or patriotic theme.Ron Klein retires, for a day Nicole NolesEDITORS Pardon me while I skip across the bridge for this weeks column. My ance, Rob, has a part time job at the Punta Gorda Dunkin Donuts on U.S. 41. Considering his constant intake of iced coffee, its a win-win situation for all concerned. Naturally, Rob knows all the regulars, and there are a lot of them, who frequent the store at various times of day to sit and chat and have their cup of joe. Monday was no exception. The morning crowd made their appearance, and one of the regulars, George, stopped by for his daily visit. George, unfortu nately, was having a bad day and had a heart attack at the store. Another regular patron of the store immediately went to his assistance and started CPR while waiting for medics to arrive. This brief story has a happy ending. George was admitted to the hospital, treated and released. He was also allegedly spotted Tuesday morning at said Dunkin Donuts, purchasing his regular cup of joe. Hows that for a loyal patron? And lets not forget about that everyday hero who was in the right place at the right time. CPR training helped make this a happy ending. You dont get to pick the time or location of a heart attack or other crisis. But you do get to decide how well you will be prepared to handle those emergencies. Your family, friends and even strangers may be depending on you to save a life. I think every place of employment should offer CPR training to their employees. AED devices are great, but can be cost prohibitive for small businesses. Its also no substitute for regular CPR training and recertication. The Sun sponsors classes for its employees on a semi-regular basis, and Ive been happy to take advantage of the classes. Ready to sign up for CPR? Browse over to and click on the link to give you infor mation on local classes. Remember, youre not taking the class for yourself, youre taking it so you can save a life of a family member, friend, or even a stranger. Im pretty sure that will be the best return on investment you can get.Time to take CPR classes and refreshers Quiet Fence helps dampen pool pump or air conditioner noiseHERALD PHOTO BY ROBERT NELSONRuh and Vivian Diehl, owners of Quiet Fence LLC, display the two current colors available. They also oer Hushhh Pads, which go under your air condi tioner to help dampen noise. Here in Florida we all like to spend as much time outdoors around the house as we can, be it poolside, at the grill or just relaxing. Then you hear the air conditioner or pool pump kick on. Some folks go inside at this point, put headphones on, or move to an area where it is not so loud. Now its time to take back your backyard tranquility. Local business owners Vivian and Ruh Diehl designed the solution. Quiet Fence has been on the mar ket since 2009, and is being sold all over the United States.

Herald Page 8 Friday, August 29, 2014 some decorations, an artfully placed lighthouse, some shells, a starsh. And it pleased him. A neighbor stopped by to admire this driveway decoration and asked him to make one for her. Her friends all wanted one when they saw hers, and their friends. Now Im non-stop busy, Ron said. Word of mouth has made his driveway decorations popular. I was in the military; now Im an artist, Ron said. Ive never done anything artistic before. I surprised myself. I think its great, said wife, Sharon, about the burgeoning business. Hes very talented! Sharons role is taking requests for the posts and keeping their Facebook page active, as Facebook is a major way they let people know about what they offer. They can be found under Poppops Lawn Care and Landscaping Dcor on Facebook. The phone number is 941-525-2236. Plans for the future include creating a website for their business, and display ing their dcor at the Shrimp Feast in Englewood on Nov. 1, and the Parkside Festival A salute To Veterans behind the Promenades Mall, 3280 Tamiami Trail on Nov. 8. The name Poppop comes from having 10 grandchildren, ages 17 down to an infant. The Kleins have three children, daughters in Englewood and New York state, and a son in Virginia. Ron grew up in Chicopee, Mass., and joined the Air Force in 1977, when he was 18 years old. The Vietnam War had recently ended and his family advised him to choose the Air Force so he would not be exposed to combat. That plan didnt work. I was in the middle of it, Ron said about his two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Incoming mortar hit near him. The Air Force taught me honesty and integrity, Klein added. Being honest and having integrity are a priority for him in his business and personal relationships. Ron retired from the Air Force from Langley, Va. His wife had visited family in Port Charlotte; though she liked it as a place to retire, he was strongly opposed. Then she brought me here to visit, and I was sold, he said. Im loving it here! ARTIST: Military man now creating art FROM PAGE 1 RIGHT: The Harley Davidson was Ron Kleins retirement gift to himself. The motorcycle is important to him as he and Sharon met on his motorcycle 35 years ago in Victorville, Calif., where he was stationed at the time. HERALD PHOTOS BY BARBARA PIERCERon Kleins work shop in his Port Charlotte garage holds all of the items he uses to craft his driveway dcor posts. Weve bought out the local craft stores, Klein said. So they began driving to Tampa to obtain supplies. Ron Klein stands in front of his I love me wall with all of the certicates and awards he received during his military career. He is especially proud of the one signed by President Obama and also the award for meritorious service, which is dicult to receive. I miss it; it was fun, he says about his Air Force career. Ron Klein designs each driveway decoration to the customers wishes. Because of his long career in the Air Force, he especially enjoys creating dcor with a patriotic or military theme. Im meeting so many awesome people, Klein said about his business.

Friday, August 29, 2014 Herald Page 13 Do you remember when?The following are excerpts from the Daily Herald-News, from Aug. 24, 1974, through Aug. 30, 1974:Labor Day historyThe propriety of setting apart this day in the year in honor of labor was rst suggested by Peter J. McGuire in 1882. In May of that year, he submitted a proposal to the recently organized Central Labor Union in New York. McGuire thought the rst Monday in September was the most desirable date, about half way between Independence Day and Thanksgiving Day. The proposal was adopted by the union, and the rst Labor Day celebration occurred on Sept. 5, 1882, with a parade in the streets of New York City. In 1884, the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions of the United States and Canada voted at a meeting in Chicago to make the celebration national. On June 28 the same year, Congress passed an act making it a legal holiday.Barbara Gunn named Daily Herald-News womens editorBarbara T. Gunn, resident of Charlotte Park, Punta Gorda, has been named womens editor of the Daily Herald-News. She replaces Ginny Lane, who was promoted to city editor. Gunn, who moved to Florida from New England last December, comes to the newspaper with wide experience in journalism. She was editor of the Montpelier Graphic in Vermont, society editor for the Union Leader in Manchester, N.H., and columnist/feature writer for the New Hampshire Sunday News. She had her own news agency in Concord, N.H., and handled publicity for the New Hampshire Veterinary Medical Association. Currently Gunn has a play being considered for publication. She is also working on another play for the Charlotte Centennial celebration in 1976.Veterans resolution approvedThe Department of Veterans of World War I will hold a mid-winter state conference in Punta Gorda Jan. 3-5, 1975. This is the rst time that this organization has come to Charlotte County. Punta Gorda Mayor Phil Laishley signed a resolution at the City Council meeting this week, extending greetings to the veterans. The mayor also urged all businesses and residents to y American ags on these dates in honor of the group. Plans call for Laishley to present veterans with a key to the city. James Simmons, longtime Punta Gorda resident and veteran, appeared wearing his VFW cap at the council meeting. He gave a snappy salute of thanks to the mayor and councilmen. The Department of Veterans of WWI invited government and business ofcials as well as organizations to attend opening-day conference ceremonies.Bike safety promotedEvery study we have seen shows a large number of injuries of pedestrians who are involved in accidents with autos. And a growing number of persons are injured in biking mishaps. On a national basis, it is estimated that there are 419,000 bicycle-related injuries each year that are serious enough to require hospital treatment. Considering the heavy load of bicycle trafc in Charlotte County, we surmise the per centage ratio would be even higher here. The Boy Scouts of America, in cooperation with the Bicycle Institute of America and the National Safety Council, have developed rules for bicycle riding. The main rule is to obey all trafc regulations for vehicles a bike is a vehicle.In the serviceNavy Yeoman 1st Class Ralph E. Fletcher has been re-enlisted in the Navy for six years.

Herald Page 14 Friday, August 29, 2014 For any Pop Warner program, hosting a pre-season Jamboree is a very challenging, yet rewarding, experience. The Charlotte Warriors program learned a lot from its last hosting gig ve years ago, when torrential rains ooded the eld which had to be pumped out, making the eld into mush. Also, the use of one eld resulted in the Jamboree ending well into the night. Lessons were learned, and on Aug. 16, Charlotte used two elds, so even though lightning delayed things for about 30 minutes and ended things shortly before the nal games ended, the whole event was nished by 4 p.m. The Warriors hosted Port Charlotte, North Fort Myers, Cape Youth and Cape Junior at Carmalita Athletic Park for those teams nal tune-up before the season. The teams brought their parents and supporters, and they bought food tickets, which brought lots of money to the program, a main by-product of this event, which rotates annually between the ve programs. The familiar refrain from many of the coaches was the players performed well, but there is still work to do. For the local teams, Charlotte and Port Charlotte, playing each other had to feel great, seeing as they once again wont meet in the regular season. Actually, playing anybody had to feel great, as they had spent the last week beating on each other, the rst week in pads, which gave them little time to learn how to hit properly. Weve only had ve days in pads, and the rst two days the new kids had to learn to protect themselves, said Keith McDonough, Port Charlotte Pee Wee coach and player safety coor dinator. He also had to make sure the program was certied to teach proper tackling. The results of the game are written in sand. Teams played two 20-minute games with a running clock, so they were usually nished within a half-hour. Despite the exhibition format, there were some nerves. McDonough said a few of them threw up before the game, which he took as a good thing because it showed they took it seriously. It showed on the eld where his team dominated, with only the lightning delay stopping them from inicting further punishment, as its second game against North Fort Myers was stopped at halftime. For Charlotte, whose teams were decked out in new, ashy uniforms, it was the same thing. The Junior Pee Wees, which wore a new, camo jersey for this season, had its problems at times against Port Charlotte, but did much better against Cape Junior following a speech from the coaching staff. We did OK. We have a lot to learn, especially the rst-year players and rst teamers, said Ronald Cole, assistant coach for the Charlotte Junior Pee Wees. For our rst time together, we did a pretty good job, but we had kids out at different times during the week and it set us back when we were teaching kids to block. The great thing about the Jamboree is that it allows coaches to try the players in different positions, and it helped them iron out mistakes before the games count. It gives us a chance to see what we need to x. I hope were ready. We have to go back to practice and keep grinding, Cole said.Warriors tuneup for season at JamboreeBy CHUCK BALLAROSPORTS WRITER HERALD PHOTOS BY CHUCK BALLAROThe Pee Wee teams for the Port Charlotte Bandits and Charlotte Warriors get in a scrum at the line of scrimmage during the annual Pop Warner Jamboree at Carmalita Athletic Park in Punta Gorda on Aug. 16.

And it only took me about 5 minutes to fully recall why I tip above the 20 percent mark all these years later. On Tuesday, I was taken back to the world of waitressing alongside a handful of celebrity waiters for the Military Heritage Museums annual Celebrity Waiter Luncheon at the Punta Gorda Elks Lodge 2606, located at 25538 Shore Drive. During the event, we worked with invaluable and wonderful volunteers from the museum and the Elks as we served salad, bread, desserts and the featured dish of the day Mama Lovejoys Self-professed, World-famous Spaghetti Sauce. The entire environment was jovial, with each waiter coming up with their own price value for their tables, charging for everything from bread and drink rells to the ever-important spaghetti-eating utensils of forks, spoons, knives and napkins. All the proceeds, of course, were given over to the museum, which also orchestrated a 50/50 drawing during the event. Recalling nights with randomly splattered and often pungent food items stuck to my blouse, shoes or, worse yet, my hair, I made a point to wear comfy, forgiving clothes that were accented by my trusty baking apron and old ballet shoes. As I stepped through the crowd, crossing from my designated table to the kitchen and back again, occasionally calling out, Behind you, to other waiters, it didnt take long to gure out my serving skills are still at the ready. Time ew, and I soon realized how hungry all that running around can make someone. When I nally got a chance to sit down and try for myself the world-famous sauce lovingly cooked up by Kim Lovejoy, the executive director of the museum, I couldnt believe how truly amazing it tasted. When this event rolls around next year, not only will I be in line to pur chase a meal, but I encourage members of the community to do the same. Its a great spaghetti meal for an even better cause.

In fact, these are the elements that make it possible for the center, located at 3400 Ponce de Leon Parkway, Punta Gorda, to be able to complete its mission to help injured, sick and orphaned native animals. And in the harsh heat of August, one of the biggest needs the center had was answered with a visit from 4 Seasons Air Conditioning. For many years, the company has been servicing PRWCs air conditioners for free. Recently, the unit that cools the hospital and ofce building stopped working efciently. It could no longer keep the building cool in the heat of the afternoon. Calls were made to three different air conditioning companies for quotes to replace the 14-year-old device, with costs ranging from $3,000 to $5,000. However, 4 Seasons came in much lower. Their quote: free. Owner Greg Hamilton and his sales manager daughter, Valerie, called air conditioner manufacturer Goodman, who, with 4 Seasons, paid for the unit. The installation costs, which were extensive as the location of the old unit had to have extensive repairs to the oor and walls before installing the new unit, were taken care of by 4 Seasons. Tyler Hamilton, the son of the 4 Seasons owner, and Roger Lynn were the installation technicians, and they installed the new equipment in less than 5 hours. Already, volunteers are cooler and are extremely grateful for the community support.

Herald Page 10 Friday, August 29, 2014 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@ The following are excerpts from the Daily Herald-News, from Aug. 24, 1974, through Aug. 30, 1974:Labor Day historyThe propriety of setting apart this day in the year in honor of labor was rst suggested by Peter J. McGuire in 1882. In May of that year, he submitted a proposal to the recently organized Central Labor Union in New York. McGuire thought the rst Monday in September was the most desirable date, about half way between Independence Day and Thanksgiving day. The proposal was adopted by the union, and the rst Labor Day celebration occurred on Sept. 5, 1882, with a parade in the streets of New York City. In 1884 the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions of the United States and Canada voted at a meeting in Chicago to make the celebration national. On June 28 that same year, Congress passed an Act making it a legal holiday.Barbara Gunn named Daily Herald-News womens editorBarbara T. Gunn, resident of Charlotte Park, Punta Gorda, has been named womens editor of the Daily Herald-News. She replaces Ginny Lane, who was promoted to city editor.

Herald Page 12 Friday, August 29, 2014 there was to do for entertainment. I sent them to local businesses, like River City Grill and Harpoon Harrys. The next day, they told me they really liked what our area has to offer. League secretary Duane Jones said, We have an outstanding relationship with the ofcials in Charlotte County. The people at the visitors bureau hooked our players up with discounted rooms, which makes it more attractive to come back again next year. Most of our players are retired and on xed incomes, so the low prices gets them to stay overnight and then they spend more money while they are here. The facility at Carmalita is not up to par with some of the other complexes where the league plays, such as those in West Palm Beach, Lakeland or The Villages. Recent construction and improvements at the park led Jones to say, It looks like they are willing to make improvements, and the teams see that and are more willing to come back again next year.
