Twelve years ago, the voters of Florida made a $27 billion mistake. We voted to add a very specic class-size amendment to our constitution. It was understandable. We wanted our schools to improve. But we were wrong. We now are spending about $3 billion a year just to satisfy the requirements of the class-size amendment. What have we gotten for our investment? In a study done in 2010 on Florida schools, the conclusion was straightforward: The study strongly suggests the monies restricted for the purpose of funding the class-size mandates are not a productive use of limited resources. We should not be surprised. In October 2002, Florida TaxWatch warned us against this amendment, and this paper recommended our readers vote against the constitutional amendment. TaxWatch called the proposed constitutional amendment structurally unsound, putting at great risk revenues, costs, teacher quality and Floridas future For Florida to approve Amendment 9 would be a blunder of major scal proportions A deceptive scattershot-from-the-hip approach. True, it was for the children. The MiamiDade school system regularly was putting more than 30 students in its classrooms to save money. Something had to be done. How can we not spend money on our children? They are our future. Fifty-two percent of Floridas voters voted yes with their hearts to the class-size constitutional amendment. But the amendment creates signicant nancial issues for the school systems. During prior recessions, when schools needed to tighten their belts for a few years, normally they would allow class sizes to increase by a student or two. Because of the amendment, school systems could not adjust class sizes, so they cut other import ant programs from their budget instead. There are many studies showing classroom size has some effect on learning. There are about as many studies showing classroom size has no measurable effect. If smaller classes do have some effect, most of the studies agree that it is really effective only from prekindergarten through third grade. After the third grade, the data is mostly inconclusive. We, the Florida voters, have made a $3 billion-a-year mistake that will go on in perpetuity if nothing is changed. What can we do about it? First, be very careful about voting for any constitutional amendment. Direct democracy by the voters is great, except when the majority is wrong. When we are wrong, and we write a new law into our state constitution, that law is incredibly difcult to undo. Because of the opportunity for an egregious error that is difcult to reverse, our paper generally recommends that Floridians vote no on constitutional amendments. Second, one day there will be a new class-size amendment that seeks to x this mistake. Vote in favor of the x, particularly if the Legislature agrees to put the $3 billion in savings to areas of education that have been demonstrated to improve student achievement. Put more money into sharing some of the best teaching practices with our teachers. Put more money into longer days or more days of student classroom instruction. Third, support your local school district if it comes to you with very specic needs that are demonstrated to create better-educated students. When you go to the polls, a vote for the wrong governor is temporary. A wrong vote for a constitutional amendment might be forever. David Dunn-Rankin is president and publisher of the Sun.

The employee who allowed him inside has been placed on leave, ofcials said. Authorities say Steven Harvey Jr., 43, of the 18400 block of Timothy Avenue, Port Charlotte, parked his truck in the par ent-pickup area of PGMS around 11:30 a.m., a Punta Gorda Police report shows. According to Charlotte County Public Schools spokesman Mike Riley, Harvey met ofce assistant Marisa Sagarese as she was leaving, and said he needed to speak to the school resource ofcer. Sagarese then let him in through the secure door and directed him to the cafeteria, Riley said. Sagarese, who was hired by the district in December 2006, has been placed on paid leave while the district conducts an investigation, Riley said Tuesday. Sagarese did not respond to a message sent to her work email Wednesday afternoon. Its unacceptable, Riley said.

The dish also comes with seasoned Tiki fries. The restaurant sells hundreds of burgers each week. Today is National Cheeseburger Day. DavidDUNNRANKINPRESIDENT AND PUBLISHERPUBLISHERS INBOXToday is National Cheeseburger DayA teriyaki-glazed pineapple-mango combination dripped onto Ashley McCalleys hand while attempting to bite into her Tiki burger at Flounders Restaurant and Tiki Bar. With a half pound of beef, salsa, bacon, Swiss and pepperjack cheeses, peperoncinis, onions and banana pep pers, McCalley knew she couldnt nish the bulging burger without needing a to-go box. Today is National Cheeseburger Day, and although the popular Englewood Beach dining spot is well-known for its Main Lobsta and Flounder sh tacos, it serves hundreds of its signature burgers each week. Four curious Flounders diners watching McCalley tackle her beast of a burger laughed. That burger is bigger than her head, said Anne Mayer, who, along with her husband Bert, was visiting her sister, Theresa Behn. It looks great. Theresa agreed. I would try it the next time. You know who makes the best burgers? Theresa said pointing at her husband Bob.

By day, Steiner, 33, is an administrative intern assistant principal and basketball coach at Heron Creek Middle School. By night, the North Port resident likes to hunt alligators along the Myakka River near Snook Haven with his friends, Brent Shepler and Tom Wolcott, also of North Port. You have to go at night, Steiner said. You have to go between 5 p.m. until 10 a.m., according to regulations set by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. You have to apply for a lottery and if you win that, youre awarded two tags, good for catching two alligators. My tags are good from Sept. 12 to Nov. 1.North Port man bags 11 -foot gatorBy STEVEN J.

Featured EventPAID ADVERTISEMENT Rams horns soon will trumpet in Sarasota and Charlotte counties for the Jewish New Year, and will call individuals to renew and deepen their relationships with God. Sunset Wednesday marks the beginning of the Jewish year 5775. Rosh Hashana, the start of the Jewish calendar, is one of the holiest of religious holidays. Englewood resident and Sun cor respondent Alison Posner-Solares is from Montreal, where the Jewish community is deeply rooted, unlike in Englewood or other local communities. Even so, PosnerSolares, who is raising her two sons in Jewish traditions, will be marking the highest of holy days with family and friends. She described Rosh Hashana as a religious holiday that teaches family values. According to Jewish traditions, Rosh Hashana literally the head of the year marks the creation of the world and Adam and Eve. It also celebrates Gods mercy. The call of the rams horn, or shofar in Hebrew, is a symbolic call of Gods mercy toward humanity, and can be heard to echo the cries from the depths of the heart, a cry for repentance. But it also echoes the coronation of kings, said Rabbi Sholom Schmerling of Chabad of Venice & North Port. Individuals are called to accept Gods kingship over their lives. Certain foods are associated with Rosh Hashana, like apples dipped in honey, as well as pomegranates, to symbolize that the upcoming year will be sweet and fruitful. A fish head is also part of the symbolism associated with the holiday. Schmerling said humanity cannot live without a relationship with God, just like a fish cannot survive without water, and, like how a fishs eyes never close, God never shuts his eyes to humanity. And then theres the tashlich, described as a special prayer said beside a body of water whether that be the Gulf, ocean, river or creek where an individual symbolically casts away his sins. But, Schmerling said, Judaism is a religion of actions. Our belief in God is important, but it is not enough. Faith is demonstrated by good deeds, he said. Rosh Hashana leads into days of repentance, and culminates with Yom Kippur, the day of atonement, which starts at sunset Oct. 3, and lasts until sunset Oct. 4. Health permitting, Schmerling said individuals are called to fast during Yom Kippur. The High Holy Days, Schmerling suggested, allow individuals to tap into and deepen their relationships with God.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comRosh Hashana celebrates a new years hopesBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERHIGH HOLY DAYSChabad of Charlotte County, at The Chabad Center, 204 E.

Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is determined by the court system.NORTH PORT North Port police arrested a 47-year-old man Tuesday night after he allegedly attacked a disabled man. According to an NPPD report, the 43-year-old victim, who wears a prosthetic leg, approached a police ofcer on Pan American Boulevard and said he was struck twice in the face by Christopher Endy, of the 6600 block of Carovel Ave. The victim told police he was riding his bike on Pan American shortly after 6 p.m. when a silver and green Toyota Camry pulled up behind him, with Endy driving and a woman in the passenger seat. Endy allegedly pulled the car to the side of the road, got out and began cursing at the victim, calling him names. When he looked over his right shoulder, the victim said Endy punched him just below the left eye, causing him to fall to the ground, the report states. The victim attempted to push the bicycle off himself and stand up, but Endy allegedly again hit the victim with his st. He also told police that he heard the woman in the passenger seat yell stop! Police contacted the victims daughter, who was on the phone with her father at the time of the incident, and she told them she could hear Endy yelling, as well as the woman in the car yell stop, and her father asking, I dont deserve this, what did I do? The victims daughter also said she was concerned for her father because she knew Endy had stated he would kick his ass in the past. Endy agreed to meet with police at his home; this portion of the report is heavily redacted, however. Ofcers also spoke with the woman, who said she had tried to grab Endy and told him to stop because she allegedly knew he was going to ght the defendant.

SARASOTA COUNTY Buses will be temporarily rerouted around the most congested area near the new Mall at University Town Center, slated to open Oct. 16, a Sarasota County ofcial said this week. SCAT buses on routes 15 and 30 will be detoured away from Cattlemen Road via other nearby streets to reduce congestion, Sarah Blanchard, senior planner for Sarasota County Area Transit, said during Mondays meeting of the Sarasota/ Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization. That detour could either be just for the mall opening, Blanchard added, but were also looking at maybe for the whole shopping season. Manatee County Commissioner Betsy Benac posed a question: What kind of bus transportation will be available at the new mall? Service on SCAT Route 15 has been operating several years, while Route 30 started in July, Blanchard explained. Sarasota and Manatee transit ofcials are coordinating bus stops. Both of those routes operate hourly, but they operate from the airport in a staggered interval, so effectively 30-minute service along University Parkway between the (Sarasota-Bradenton International) airport and the mall, Blanchard said. SCAT and the malls developer, Benderson Development Co., are building a new transfer station on the southeast corner of North Cattlemen Road and DeSoto Road, but it probably wont be done for a few months, she said. So were operating out of a temporary location, and we are working on a detour, so that we arent going to cause more trafc congestion on North Cattlemen while the mall opens, but also so our buses wont be stuck in trafc, Blanchard said. The new mall is at the intersection of I-75 and University Parkway, where a trolley system is planned to carry riders between the mall and Cooper Creek Shopping Center, perhaps going as far as Lakewood Ranch. Were learning more about that, as the mall opening is right around the corner, Blanchard said. The company has contracted with a private rm to operate the trolleys.Sarasota officials plan temporary rerouting for buses near new mallBy SARA KENNEDYBRADENTON HERALD PHOTO PROVIDEDThe Mall at University Town Center as seen in an aerial photo taken in June. Prepare to squint less the next time you visit Southwest Florida International Airports passenger terminal. Lee County Port Authority is rolling out a slew of new digital, high-definition signs and mobile device charging stations well in advance of tourisms winter high season. Although the airport terminal is only 9 years old, technology has improved significantly during that time, making changes essential, said Bob Ball, port authority executive director. Its about improving the customer experience, Ball said. Its also about enhancing revenue opportunities for the airport authority. The sign update includes new video wall adver tising spaces in the terminals East and West atriums and new dynamic liquid crystal displays for advertising at the 10 baggage claim belts. The change to new flight information display screens often abbreviated as FIDS is about 90 percent completed, and probably the most noticeable at this time. Out: FIDS set in bulky cabinets. In: Bigger screens affixed to lean metal frames that have more of an airy, high-tech feeling. These screens can carry more flight listings than their predecessors. They look nice. Theyre clear and informative, said Tina Rose, a 40-something business traveler from Cleveland. Other elements of the nearly $5 million project include: Installing flight information display screens at the 7-Eleven store located next to the airport parking spaces for cellphone users. That job will start next month. Replacing 14 advertising scrolling signs inside the terminals public areas and three concourses with the video walls. Ninetyeight percent done. Adding big-screen advertising video walls in the East and West atriums, over the entrances to concourses B and D. Fifty percent done. Installing LED displays above the bag carousels and LCD displays for advertising. Forty percent done. Replacing 13 non-electronic and static airport/airline information displays with LCD signs that have airline directories on top, other airport information and directories on the bottom. Replacing 13 linear pay phone stations in the ticketing area and concourses with charging stations. The latter are wall-mounted counters with standard electrical outlets. Plan on standing up against the counter if you want to use your device while its plugged in. Data from Pew Internet Project research shows that as of January 2014: 90 percent of U.S. adults had a cellphone. 58 percent had a smartphone. 32 percent owned an e-reader. 42 percent owned a tablet computer. Despite the plethora of cellphones, pay phones wont vanish entirely from Southwest Florida International. The occasional inter national or domestic traveler still asks for them, said airport spokeswoman Victoria Moreland. When the project wraps up, five pay phones will remain in the terminal. In the pre-security areas: one upstairs; one downstairs. Also, one pay phone in each of the three concourses.Signs of the times pop up at SW Florida InternationalBy LAURA RUANE FORT MYERS NEWS-PRESSWHOS PAYING?

Our Town Page 6 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, September 18, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE MURDOCK When about 30 Publix employees turned out early Wednesday morning to fix up the grounds at the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, they were met by rain, 100 percent humidity and a huge task ahead. And they responded with 100 percent effort, plenty of moisture of their own in sweat, and a spruced-up landscape to be proud of. While combating the stifling heat, Publix volunteers noted that many of those served by the homeless coalition fight the elements every day. So on this morning, part of the United Way of Charlotte County annual Day of Caring, they were happy to contribute their time, and more. Realizing that mulch was needed to finish the job, employ ees, clad in their Live United T-shirts, reached into their own pockets to supply the material, along with the labor. Of course, they didnt have money for mulch, so I decided to grab a few bags, said Mark Moss, who works at the Burnt Store Road store in Punta Gorda. Its just easier. Publix volunteers then spent the rest of the morning trimming bushes, pulling weeds, raking up unwanted residue and spreading out the ground cover with much more mulch on the way. It feels good to work outside, said Chris Couture of the same Punta Gorda Publix. Its good to help the community and make everything look nice. But that was only part of the selflessness exhibited by Publix employees on this Day of Caring. The Publix spirit also was on display at other community-service projects around town, such as at Charlotte HIV/AIDS People Support (CHAPS) in Port Charlotte, where volunteers repacked bulk bags of rice from the Harry Chapin Food Bank for the convenience of individuals and families in need, and at AMIKids Crossroads east of Punta Gorda, where they helped resident youths to paint their rooms. Clearly, service is a pleasure at Publix, as the slogan says. Its greatly appreciated, said Jamie Jamieson, facilities coordinator for the homeless coalition. The backbone of the coalition is its volunteers and donors. We couldnt operate without them. John Fanning, director of operations, explained that the shelter, as usual, is filled to capacity with 60 residents, including 24 children. The extra attention to yard work makes them feel more at home, he said. The makeup of the residents is mostly families and children, Fanning said. This is totally awesome. Publix is a fabulous supporter of the coalition, not to mention the community as a whole. Beyond its commitment to volunteerism, Publix also assists the homeless coalition with a daily delivery of boxes and boxes of breads and pastries. And for the holidays, the grocer provides residents with turkeys, pies and prepared meals. In addition, Publix also conducts an annual Food For All fundraising campaign, raising $10,000 in cash donations each year for the homeless coalition, which also is commemorating its 25th year of caring in the community. Thats a huge financial contribution on top of their volunteering, said Tina Figliuolo, the coalitions director of community relations and development. That money supports our hunger-prevention program, which includes serving hot meals and stocking our food pantry. The Day of Caring, which this year coincides with United Ways Annual Campaign kickoff, is intended to remind folks of the importance of helping others. And, in Charlotte County, where need abounds, there is still much more to do. Publix is a big supporter of United Way, Moss said. It allows us the chance to help the community and it makes us feel good. And we hope others get involved.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comPublix spirit drives Day of CaringBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERdoing that at a school. After Harvey got into the lunchroom and made contact with school resource ofcer, PGPD Cpl. Tony Pribble, he started screaming in a mumbled gibberish, according to the police report. Pribble quickly got the man to go outside with him, and he learned Harvey was frantic because he thought there might be a bomb under his truck. Pribble said he was very surprised to learn the man had not checked in at the schools ofce, the secure single-point entrance for visitors. And if anyone comes to see me, (employees) know they need to contact me on the radio, Pribble said. Students were eating in the cafeteria but lunch was not disrupted, Pribble said. Once outside, the man was acting excited and uncontrollable, so Pribble called for backup, the report shows. Another ofcer noted Harvey appeared to be high on cocaine. As it turns out, the wires the man thought were connected to a bomb actually belonged to a side marker light for a tool box in the bed of the pickup. Harvey told ofcers he was in Punta Gorda to look for his girlfriend, because hed found out she was a prostitute. Harvey could not explain why he was at the school. A student claimed to have seen Harvey driving around the campus earlier in the day. Ofcers found glass shards in Harveys truck that appeared to be from a broken crack pipe, and that had a burnt residue that tested positive for cocaine, a report stated. Harvey signed a waiver refusing medical treatment. He was arrested on charges of disorderly intoxication, trespassing at a school, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was booked at the Charlotte County Jail Tuesday afternoon, where he remained Wednesday afternoon on $16,000 bond. Harvey previously was sentenced to ve years in prison from a 1997 Charlotte case involving multiple counts of exploitation of the elderly or disabled, and one count of grand theft. He also received a 10year sentence for a 2003 Charlotte case of leading law enforcement on a 90 mph chase through Lee, Charlotte, DeSoto and Sarasota counties, the Sun previously reported. The chase ended with Harvey exiting his vehicle and eeing into woods, where he attacked a Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce K-9 and suffered three dog bites as a result. On the way to jail Tuesday, Harvey reportedly told the transporting ofcer that his girlfriend got one over on him, and now everyone would think he is crazy.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comBREACHEDFROM PAGE 1 packs the ground beef loosely into a patty and cooks it. Even medium rare, it tastes avory and wonderful. Many area restaurants now boast more offerings than the typical cheeseburger. At Chubbyz Tavern in Port Charlotte, one of the best-selling burgers is a half-pound U.S. choice with special ingredients. We sell a number of burgers each night, said Allison Ebel, server and bartender at the tavern, 4109 Tamiami Trail. Weve received the best complements for our burgers. Its because of our talented chef. Even when he cooks them well done, theres still that good burger juice. Ebel said Chubbyz customers like burgers so much, the tavern has specials on Mondays and Saturdays. On those two days, they are specially priced at $6.95, (which) includes a drink and fries. In North Port, Christine Zagrobelny, co-owner of Olde World Restaurant, said customers enjoy her selection of burgers. Theres the kraut burger, the Reuben burger, the Greek burger with feta cheese, she said. We have the ultra cheeseburger with super-melted cheese. Our Ultra Burger is 8 ounces of choice chuck. We make them homemade. We dont buy prepared patties. Our pizza burger is served with Stromboli sauce and pepperoni and Provolone cheese. Zagrobelny boasts about the most popular burger on the menu. The West Coast burger has guacamole, green onion bits (and) tomato, with a grilled bun with garlic butter, she said. People love it. Zagrobelny said she also takes customers suggestions for burgers. When someone wants to tell us what they like in a burger, we will try it, she said, adding sometimes they are good sellers and sometimes not. We think our burgers are pretty great. According to the Hufngton Post, Americans eat nearly 50 billion burgers a year, which translates to three burgers a week for every single person in the United States. McDonalds reportedly sells 75 burgers every single second of every minute of every hour of every single day.Email: eallen@sun-herald.comFWC spokesman Mark Trainor said alligator hunting season runs from Aug. 15 to Nov. 1, and hunters are assigned strict hunting areas to protect the gators population numbers. I dont think any state offers y ear-round alligator hunting season, Trainor said. Also, alligators may be taken only by the use of articial lures or baited wood pegs, less than 2 inches in length. Harpoons, gigs, snatch hooks and manually operated spears, spear guns, crossbows and bows with projectiles may be used, but not rearms. Trainor added there is no restriction on the size of the alligator, as long as it is not a hatchling. But you want to get the biggest gator you can, he said. Because you only get two tags and you want to make some money on them, selling the skins or the meat. Steiner said he caught the 11-foot, 5-inch, 550-pound gator using a shing pole with a treble hook on the end of it. We shined a light along the banks of the river, he said. You shine the light until you see a reection of their eyes. This ones eyes looked pretty big, so we cruised our boat up to it. I hooked him, but he stripped the bearings out of the reel of the pole I was using. He went under and we threw another pole with a hook on it and we snagged him on the river bottom. I didnt even see him. Then he took off. Steiner, Shepler and Wolcott battled the gator for two and a half hours on their 17-foot boat until they nally exhausted it. He pulled us up and down the river and from side to side until we wore him down, Steiner said. When they tire, they get lactic acid built up in their muscles, which allows you to pull them to the surface. Steiner reiterated he was not allowed to use a gun to kill the alligator. Instead, FWC regulations stipulate the animal must be dispatched with a bang stick, which essentially is a four-footlong, rod-like metal chamber that houses ammunition detonated by a ring pin at close range. It would be a lot less complicated to use a gun, but they dont let you use one to hunt alligators in Florida, he said. A bang stick is like a gun, but youve got to get a lot closer to your target something like 4 feet. Trainor said a bang stick is safer than a gun at least for anyone else who happens to be in the area. You have to consider the ricochet of the bullet from a gun, even off the surface of the water, he said. A bang stick goes right up against the gator, which helps guarantee the safety of other hunters. Steiners bang stick didnt work. Its .38-caliber bullets simply attened on the alligators impenetrable skull. So they had to pull it onto the boat alive, where they taped its mouth shut with electrical tape, then severed its spinal cord with a knife. Once the gator was measured and weighed, it was sold for about $450 to Fussells Frozen Food Inc., a meat-packing plant in Arcadia. But Steiner maintained its not about the prot, which is minimal. Its about the adventure. It costs $292 just to get the tags, he said. When you gure in the fuel costs for the boat, the tags and the equipment, youre not making any real money. I go out with a couple of my buddies and its nice just being out on the water. I enjoy the hunting and we respect the alligator through the whole process. Plus, we are legally serving the community, keeping these predators from straying into residential areas. And Steiners still got another tag to use, with a month and a half left to use it. Ill be going out again soon, he said.

The Sun /Thursday, September 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS SARASOTA COUNTY Sarasota County School Board members were not impressed with charter school applicants who appeared before them in a workshop this week. Four applicants were on the agenda for the Tuesday meeting Horizons Unlimited Creative Learning Academy, Our Childrens Charter School Sarasota, Plato Academy Charter School and SKY Academy of Englewood to answer questions about their proposals, but only three attended. One of them (HUCLA) didnt even show up, board member Caroline Zucker said of the applicant, which was submitting its second application in two years. After submitting applications on Aug. 1, charter school applicants were ranked on 19 standards by the districts Charter Review Committee using the Florida Charter School Application Evaluation Instrument. The standards, divided into three categories reviewing an applicants educational, organizational and business plans, measure whether an applicant meets, does not meet or partially meets the standards. The way they answer those 19 points on the application, and when someone meets very few of the 19 standards, thats of great concern, board Chairwoman Jane Goodwin said. A charter school is to be innovative and unique. None of the scores would be what I would call good. Two of them, HUCLA and Our Childrens, had 0 percent meet the standards completely. HUCLA had 89 percent partially meet and 11 percent that did not meet the standards. Our Childrens did not meet 94 percent of the standards and only partially met 6 percent. Several board members also questioned why two applicants, Our Childrens and Plato Academy, were even interested in Sarasota County, as they are run by for-prot parent companies and have no ties to the area. (Plato Academy) would not even have any board members from the local area, and theyre just hoping to catch whatever they can, Zucker said. They said if theres an opening on their board, they would perhaps look into adding a local board member. Plato Academy scored a 26 percent meets the standards, 69 percent partially meets and 5 percent does not meet. Zucker also expressed serious concerns over SKY Academy of Englewood, a proposed charter middle school that is an offshoot of the SKY Academy in Venice. Most of their problem is that the majority of their students are coming from Charlotte County, and Sarasota County taxpayers would be paying for it, Zucker said, adding both she and board member Shirley Brown had heard concerns from Charlotte County, too, that it would pull students from existing Charlotte public schools. SKY posted 44 percent meeting, 50 percent partially meeting and 6 percent not meeting the ratings requirements. Goodwin had different points of concern with the SKY application. There no data recorded on how this model is working for their students (at the Venice SKY Academy), she said. Im also concerned with their C grade. They went from an A to a B to a C. Applicants will have nal interviews with the CRC on Oct. 2 to provide clarication and address any unresolved issues on their applications, at which time the CRC will make its nal evaluation. The School Board will vote on the applications Oct. 21. Goodwin said, ultimately, she and other board members want charters and all district schools to be successful. The burden and the bar is set pretty high. It should be set high, she said. Opening a charter school is much more difcult than it was 10 years ago, because they take public funds and there are all sorts of issues with accountability. Most of (the applicants) didnt have a board, and two of the three had no presence in our county at all no board, no facility. Plato has applied in Pasco and Hillsborough (counties) and here. Thats pretty aggressive.Email: annek@sun-herald.comSarasota School Board critical of charter applicantsBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITERWHITE GLOVE AWARDS PRESENTED Also during the regular School Board meeting Tuesday afternoon, district custodians were recognized for the care and cleanliness they bring to area schools with the annual White Glove awards. Board Chairwoman Jane Goodwin called the annual awards presenta tion one of my favorite things. I find our facilities something I talk about frequently (when out and about) in the district, Goodwin told the custodial staff present at the meeting. Director of District Facilities Services Jody Dumas also praised the janitors for their work. Its all about the people that make it happen he said, adding they pursue professional development for head custodians across the district. Area winner schools and custodians of the 2014 White Glove awards are: Honorable mentions: Glenallen Elementary Randy Roy Pine View Roger Ferris/Marcia Hill Toledo Blade Elementary Olga Andrashko Platinum Glove awards: Atwater Elementary Victor Biziewski Lamarque Elementary Domenick Palumbo Laurel/Nokomis Carolyn Shriner SCTI Debra Purvis/Denise Pignotti Taylor Ranch Elementary Theresa Filary Venice Elementary Antanina Dunchyk Venice High Robert Tompkins/Jim Skopec Venice Middle Michelle Cappotto Woodland Middle Jim Shaughnessy Board member Caroline Zucker also thanked custodians for their top-notch efforts.

The Sun /Thursday, September 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 9 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. SARASOTA COUNTY Sarasota County has responded to a Sanborn Studios countersuit in a continuing ght over whether the company created jobs it promised in exchange for more than $600,000 in public incentive money, moving Friday to dismiss the action. The lm company allegedly failed to produce the jobs for which it received money. Sanborn Studios claims the county violated its own ethics rules and state ethics codes, disregarded its own audit reports, and deliberately undermined the studios business. A news release from the studio this week states that its reputation has been severely damaged by the countys malicious actions. The studio will ask for a monetary judgment, but has not yet determined the amount. Instead of admitting that it has acted improperly and in violation of its own rules, and terribly mistreated one of its business citizens, or at least offering to nd out who within the county has been doing that and put a stop to it, Sarasota County has instead responded with a barrage of legal lings in its continuing attempt to crush Sanborn Studios, said David Boggs, the studios attorney. As previously stated, Sarasota County is a dangerous place to do business. The county led suit against Sanborn Studios in June to regain about $350,000 of incentive money it paid the company based on promised job creation. In its 2010 agreement with the county, the studio was required to create 117 jobs with an average salary of $72,000 by Sept. 2, 2013, in return for $650,000 in county incentive money. In its countersuit, Sanborn Studios accused the county of breach of duty of good faith and fair dealing, slander of title, dispar agement of property, trade libel and injurious falsehoods, interference with contractual relations, and intentional interference with an advantageous business relationship.Sarasota County moves to dismiss Sanborn countersuitPROVIDED BY THE BRADENTON HERALD PUNTA GORDA City leaders have decided to push ahead with plans to construct a $28 million reverse-osmosis water-treatment plant, despite an ongoing tug-of-war with the Southwest Florida Water Management District for grant money to help defray project costs. For utility rate payers, the councils decision Wednesday to press for ward without knowing denitely whether the district, more commonly known as Swiftmud, will fund any portion of the project may mean a rate increase of 3.65 percent per year over a three-year period, starting next year. City staff calculated the increase based on early projections of 1 percent growth and zero Swiftmud dollars. I think its essential that we move forward and demonstrate to our legislators that we are, in fact, building this project, City Councilman Tom Cavanaugh said.Last year, the council directed staff to move ahead with the RO plant, a project that addresses the citys long-standing water-quality problems. Ofcials directed staff to apply for $14 million in Swiftmud funding, or half the total estimated project cost. But in June, Swiftmuds governing board rejected the citys application, saying it did not meet the districts multijurisdictional criteria.Instead, it tentatively agreed to fund a portion of the well eld testing, pending a deal among Punta Gorda, Charlotte County and the Peace River/Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority for the construction of a pipeline that connects the authoritys water-treatment plant in DeSoto County to the citys Shell Creek plant. The now-infamous Phase 1 Pipeline a hot topic several years ago was abandoned by the county in 2006 because of nancial concerns. At that time, the project was estimated to cost $11 million; today, ofcials estimate it could cost up to $14 million. Punta Gorda has agreed to pick up a portion of the cost if it means funding for its RO plant. At Wednesdays City Council meeting, the members agreed to move ahead, despite ongoing negotiations. We made a plan. We made a decision to do it and were ready to go, Councilwoman Kim Devine said. But Councilwoman Nancy Prafke urged fellow council members to consider the unspoken message they might communicate with their decision. I think that (we) should move forward, but I think we should move forward (so as) not to appear being deant with Swiftmud, Prafke said. We are moving forward in a positive way. Construction is estimated to begin in the fall of 2016, city ofcials said.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comLeaders push forward on $28M water plantBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERWe made a plan.

HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOREmail letters to letters@sun-herald.comChairman Derek Dunn-Rankin Publisher David Dunn-Rankin Executive Editor Chris Porter Editorial page editor Brian Gleason Editorial writer Stephen Baumann Editor John Hackworth V IEWPOINTNo penny tax for new radios Keep county moving forward Sudden wisdom from oce-seekers Suicide rate linked to gun ownership Getting the facts on incorporation Human fetus is human life Visitors help pay sales taxesEditor: Latest penny tax funded essential project being touted by the Sun is a $10 million digital technology communication system replacement of Charlottes soon obsolete analog system. Sun goes to great lengths to advise readers of the many benets county/citizens receive from this upgrade. I agree with the assessment of proposed system benets (i.e., better communication quality/range; better employee productivity; and enhanced security) with the caveat such replacement cannot be accomplished via available cheaper technology, such as the latest smartphone technology. Evidence is strong the analog system should be upgraded. However, essential assets funded via penny tax revenue represents government decision-making at its worst. Critical asset procurement in most American cities and Editor: One of the few hard decisions Charlotte County commissioners dont have to make is to pass or not pass the six-year penny sales tax extension. That decision will be up to those people who choose to vote in the November General Election. The sales tax extension rhetoric indicates an extraordinary anger against the sales tax and it seems to be more than the usual suspects. (You know, those who will cut spending by $350 million.) Well, Charlotte County voters do have a difficult decision to make come November. In reality, I dont believe it is a hard decision. It is a vote for improved roads, safety, economic expansion, quality of life and environmental issues. The tax is already Editor: Whether you agree or not with President Obamas four-point plan to deal with the terrorist organization called ISIS, I nd politicians of both sides this week asking, Why didnt he call for action with ground troops? totally ridiculous. I would love to see these big mouth congressmen and senators strap on a rie and go to the Middle East and serve their country in uniform instead of a three-piece suit with their skin freshly tanned. Or better still, send their sons and daughters, or in many cases their grandkids, since many of these politicians have been serving for decades. And by the way, why is it that after serving in the Congress or Senate for 15, 20 or even 30 years, do these politicians running for ofce come up with a great idea to turn the county around just when they are again running for another term? What have they been doing all these years?Frank Gallucci Port CharlotteEditor: A recent letter writer stated he thought the increase in the suicide rate to be caused by the president, but never refers to the fact that over half of those suicide deaths 50.1 percent in 2011 are caused by rearms. When I mentioned this to a local NRA supporter, he callously said something to the effect it clears the gene pool, and bristled when I said that sounded like eugenics. In Israel, where one might think there would be a high rate of gun ownership, access to guns is strictly controlled. Applicants need to submit to mental and physical health exams, take gun courses, pass shooting exams and background checks. The gun courses and exams must be repeated every three years, and license renewal is not automatic. More germane to the topic of suicide, once Israel no lon ger permitted its soldiers to take home their weapons in 2006, the suicide rate among IDF members fell 40 percent. There was a similar drop in the suicide rate in Australia after major gun law reforms in 1996. Studies have found that gun owners are no more prone to suicide than non-owners, its just that they are more likely to die because they are using a gun. Those who attempt suicide by other means are more likely to survive, and 90 percent of those do not go on to die by their own hands. Rage, depression, anxiety and other mental feelings are transitory, but if theres a gun around, the chances of suicide are increased exponentially.Tom Scott Punta GordaEditor: Opinions based on kneejerk reactions rather than factual information are, at best, counterproductive and, at worst, dangerous. So goes the discussion regarding the potential for incorporation of the greater Port Charlotte area. The gut reaction of some is to immediately assume that incorporation means more government bureaucracy and more taxes. Typically, city government takes over the municipal functions of county government, putting decision-making into the hands of the citys elected representatives. As for taxation, it could be higher or lower depending on several factors. One, the city would participate in revenue-sharing for taxes we are already paying but have not been getting a fair-share direct benet. As part of revenue sharing, the city can spend locally and pour its share back into needed improvements. Another aspect is the assumption of monies in MSBU funds and other special assessments. The new city would decide where and how the money is spent not Editor: A recent letter to the editor began, Why shouldnt abortion be available and affordable to all? The human fetus is human life. As such, it should be protected by law. The most important role of government is to safeguard the lives under its authority. The right to life trumps any claim to privacy or choice.Jim, Judy Gontis Punta GordaEditor: For weeks I have been reading the negative remarks in regard to the 1 percent sales tax. The way I look at it is, no more money would be coming out of residents pockets that isnt already coming out. A good portion of the tax is paid by out-of-state visitors to our area. There are many more snowbirds and tourists than there are residents. So, in fact, it is others who are helping with our infrastructure, raising our proper ty values, and improving our lives as full-time residents. Unless Im missing something, this vote is a nobrainer. I do believe it is time our county commissioners pay off the Murdock Village debt, before starting any new major projects.Kathleen Greenberg Punta GordaPartnership seeks to end homelessnessOUR POSITION: The Charlotte County Homeless Coalition has spearheaded an ambitious plan it hopes can lead to an end, or severely curtail, homelessness in Charlotte County within 10 years.There seems to be no real answer to the plight of the homeless. The dialogue has been endless as counties, cities, nonprots and other government groups search for an anecdote for the suffering of the poor, the mentally ill and others who live with no roof over their heads, except for tarps or tents that serve the most fortunate. Members of the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition tired of the talk. Its members went into action and developed an optimistic 10-year plan to end homelessness. The ideas put forth in the plan rely on a partnership between local businesses, government entities and the public to make it all work. And, while it would be easy to shrug it off as too ambitious and unwieldly, we prefer to believe in the hard work and ideas that have been nurtured into what is the most comprehensive evaluation of the homeless problem yet offered. A group from the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition outlined the plan for the Sun editorial board this week. There are 135 pages of details that cover just about every aspect of homelessness from the causes to how it impacts the community to possible cures. The plan was the work of a committee but it was put together by David Justiniano, the 10-year plan coordinator. The key elements include: Integrating the homeless with the countys 211 information service to allow clients faster service even the ability to get aid with paying rent over the phone instead of having to travel and ll out forms. Utilizing the countys richest resource, its retiree population, as volunteers to help the homeless ll out applications and nd help. A crisis intervention plan to de-escalate confrontations with the mentally ill. This plan would include training for police and rst responders. Using the guardian ad litem program as a model, they would develop adult protective services to help people who may lack the mental ability to help themselves. The volunteers might, for example, call Social Security on behalf of someone whose checks have been stolen. To work with developers who may be willing to help with affordable rental housing. A similar program in Jacksonville has met with great success. A possible endowment for rental assistance is another goal. Partnering with the business community to help put people to work possibly offering incentives for hiring those on food stamps. Working with schools to develop programs for needed job skills. Making early intervention a priority looking to stem the impact of poverty early in a childs life so children wont start school without an experience in early childhood education or Head Start. Partnering with the community and schools to expand a one-on-one mentoring program and create more summer activities for children. Coalition members are realistic that the plan wont work unless they are successful in creating the Gulf Coast Partnership a coalition of government agencies, nonprots, faith-based organizations, businesses and homeless advocates that can do the heavy lifting and see the plan through. Angela Hogan, chief executive ofcer of the Homeless Coalition, said the 10-year plan was created after looking at what did not work elsewhere. She said even in its infancy other towns are curious and looking at some of the original ideas in Charlotte Countys plan. Kudos to the coalition for its bold leadership in addressing a counties is funded via the annual governmental operating budgets committed tax revenues. County administrator is responsible for authorizing critical equipment purchases funded with committed ad valorem taxes, not from sales tax money, which may never transpire. Countys current annual operating budget exceeds $560 million, plus capital budget, which tacks on nearly $300 million more. People who closely follow county budgetary actions believe the budget is bloated and must be cut signicantly. Ample room exists in this bloated budget to wedge in this essential system upgrade. Games being played in this penny tax extension asco are numerous and deceitful. Voters will strongly defeat the tax extension thereby forcing our administrator to nally begin prioritizing projects in the annual budget. Special interest wish list projects should be nanced 100 percent by special interests.Fred Eyrich Punta Gordacounty administration. A group of volunteers are exploring the feasibility of incorporating the greater Port Charlotte area. Factors such as taxation, management, operational costs, sustainability, and potential improvements are being considered. Once the facts are in, knowledgeable dialogue and decision-making will be possible. One thing is certain, if we continue on the same path we are currently on we can expect to see a lack of investment in critically needed infrastructure. Insanity is continuing to do the same thing but expecting different results. So Port Charlotte, hows it working out for us so far?Denise Garbacz Port Charlottein effect. It is not new. My certainly unofcial forecast of the cost of the penny tax to a person or family with income of $25,000 per year will be an average of 99 cents per week. I dont believe the person or family will feel any more or less hardship by 99 cents per week. Much to the credit of county government from top to bottom is that they have tended to keep hands off the project selection process. To a great extent, they have left the selection process up to private citizens who volunteered to serve on the Charlotte Assembly and the sales tax focus group. Space doesnt allow for a thorough argument for passage of the extension. Vote yes to keep the county moving forward.John Hitzel Port Charlotte alee 'l Syr,H TIMESJI 11

The Sun /Thursday, September 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINTInstead of completely blowing off concerns of climate change and global warming, Gov. Rick Scott has adopted the strategy of replying to that line of questioning with a rather dismissive, Im not a scientist. Because Florida is a peninsula vulnerable to extensive and costly damage from sea-level rise, both in terms of human life and property, it really is a big deal. Weve already seen what damage can be done from the disastrous 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons when Charley, Frances, Jeanne, Ivan, Dennis and Wilma devastated much of the state. These storms caused massive property damage and the corresponding property insurance to skyrocket. Some insurers left the state; others canceled policies and/ or refused to write new business, playing havoc with our insurance mar ket. Property owners had a difcult time getting or keeping insurance, so weather-related incidents are a big deal. Ten scientists from Floridas well-respected universities made the governor an offer to tutor him on climate change risks and solutions. In a letter, they wrote, We are scientists and we would like the opportunity to explain what is at stake for our state. There is a clear need to develop a state plan to both mitigate and adapt to the threats to Floridas communities, businesses, tourism industry and protect the states economic well-being. At rst Gov. Scott politely put them off. When he was chastised, Scott then agreed to have the scientists meet with his staff. These actions disheartened the scientists who hoped that the states leader would take the situation a little more seriously. Then the tipping point: Former Gov. Charlie Crist, seeking his old job, jumped on the chance to meet with the scientists. During Crists administration, one of his rst major conferences was on global warming hardly a topic embraced by Republicans. Since Crist is already a believer, his meetings with the climate change experts was more akin to preaching to the choir. Immediately after Crist indicated the desire to meet with some of the scientists, Gov. Scott had a change of heart or campaign strategy. Scott agreed to meet with the scientists. But the scientists would wait weeks for that meeting to take place. Five of the 10 scientists traveled to Tallahassee on Aug. 19 for the 30 minutes allotted to them. Each scientist was supposed to have ve minutes to explain his or her area of expertise and offer solutions. Wow! Five minutes on a topic of this magnitude. How did the meeting go? Well, the governor made small talk for half the allotted time, leaving each of the scientists three minutes to present and then Scotts staff cut them off. Scott showed little interest, asked no subject matter questions and gave no commitment. Really, what was the point? Was it just a photo op for Scott? The scientists left with the sinking feeling that Scott was not likely to take meaningful action despite the fact that federal guidelines require Florida to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 38 percent by 2030. Currently there is no plan. In the meeting they stressed that rising sea levels is one of the climate issues that is already having an impact on Floridas coastal communities. Warming of the oceans causes them to expand and, along with melting ice, causes the sea level to rise. That has major consequences for Floridians. The scientists broke down a complicated topic into easy-tounderstand components: water holds a lot more heat than air; oceans control the planets temperature; 90 percent of the heat is stored in oceans; ocean heat content continues to rise at a rapid rate; and there are solutions. Ironically, while Scott shows little interest in the scientists advice in addressing a real problem facing the state, he touts the importance of a STEM education. STEM, of course, stands for science, technology, engineering and math. The governor is so committed to STEM that he cut $300 million from the existing 11 state universities while simultaneously supporting legislation to create a 12th university dedicated to a STEM curriculum. Scott even took time, a lot more than 30 minutes, to travel to Polk County to attend the Aug. 16 opening of the newest university, where he enthusiastically spoke of the importance of a STEM education. While Scott had the time and interest in talking to these bright young students who will be the problem-solvers of tomorrow, why didnt he afford the same courtesy, three days later, to the STEM problemsolvers of today? Paula Dockery is a syndicated columnist who served in the Florida Legislature for 16 years as a Republican from Lakeland. Readers may reach her at PBDockery@ gmail.com.Scott loves STEM but scientists, not so much Paula Dockery N O T I C E O F P U B L I C H E A R I N G The DeSoto County Planning Commission (PC)/Board of Adjustment (BoA) and Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) of DeSoto County, Florida will consider the adoption of ordinances and resolutions regarding the planning requests below.

Our Town Page 12 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, September 18, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS A man accused of robbing a Punta Gorda bank this summer was indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury in Fort Myers. John Robert Haldemann, 30, of Naples, was formally charged with two counts of armed bank robbery involving a Wells Fargo Bank in Naples on July 12 and the Bank of America at 100 Madrid Blvd. in Punta Gorda on July 25. He made off with more than $12,300 in the two hold-ups, according to a press release from the United States Department of Justice. During the Punta Gorda robbery, Haldemann showed a gun to the teller, grabbed some cash and fled, a Punta Gorda Police report shows. A resident in the area noticed what he thought was a suspicious vehicle, and later reported a partial tag number to local police. That led to the arrest of Haldemann who was being held Wednesday at the Collier County Jail on $110,500 bond.Alleged bank robber indicted HALDEMANNSTAFF REPORTThe North Port Area Chamber of Commerce will host its Annual Installation Banquet at 6 p.m. Sept. 28 at Heron Creek Golf & Country Club.

Our Town Page 14 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, September 18, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Its tting that an organization that reaches in as many directions as the United Way was doing just that Wednesday morning. As the sun tried to peek through the clouds, board members and staff of the United Way of Charlotte County kicked off the 2015 Campaign at the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce breakfast. Lots of folks were there and raised a cheer, pledging to support the United Ways effort. At exactly the same time, hundreds of volunteers rolled up their sleeves and showed up to work for Day of Caring. They were painting interior walls with John Davidson way out east of Punta Gorda at AMIkids Crossroads. Or they were bagging, serving portions of rice and beans with Mercie Chick at the Charlotte HIVAIDS People Support in Murdock. Or maybe they were doing whatever Suzanne Roberts needed to be done at the Virginia B. Andes Volunteer Community Clinic in the middle of Port Charlotte. All that and a whole bunch more. Youve got to get up pretty early in the morning to catch up with these folks something I need to work on! And in the middle of it all was Carrie BlackwellHussey, managing her tiny staff, her volunteer board members, all the folks who want to help and who need help. This year, the United Way of Charlotte County is partnered with 27 agencies that directly serve people in our community. Some of them are big, nationwide organizations that have a long-standing presence in the county, like the Girl Scouts, the Boy Scouts and the Boys & Girls Club. Some are tiny, like the Yah Yah Girls, which has a Back Pack Kidz program thats here and nowhere else. Each of these agencies big and small has to show a need and prove its worth to panels made up of community members who report to the United Way Board. The agencies also must do this if they want funding from Charlotte County or the city of Punta Gorda the United Way handles that function for the government entities. For the last two years, these nonprot organizations have the added requirement of nding a project that lls a need in the 2013 Community Needs Assessment, an exhaustive study commissioned by the United Way. It puts the highest value on projects that cover education, employ ment, family services, health, poverty and transportation. Those were the unmet needs that are priorities in our community, according to the study. That means, if you have a project thats centered around building a pretty fountain for a park, or new bleachers for a bocce court, that may be nice, but theres not much chance its going to get funded, at least by the United Way. If you think about it, this approach makes sense. You have an agency stretched in every direction trying to meet needs and cover as much ground as possible. If you think you may support this agency, you want it to be as focused as possible.United Way focuses on meeting needs SUN PHOTOS BY DONNELL BATESDr. John Watters from Panther Hollow Dental Lodge is seen here lling out his United Way pledge card at the annual kicko campaign.

People that buy the appliances Tax holiday set for energy-saving appliancesBy JIM TURNER and TOM URBANNEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA WRITERS PHOTO PROVIDED HOLIDAY | 4WEST PALM BEACH Americans suffer needless discomfort and undergo unwanted and costly care as they die, in part because of a medical system ruled by perverse incentives for aggressive care and not enough conversation about what people want, according to a report released Wednesday. Though people repeatedly stress a desire to die at home, free from pain, the opposite often happens, the Institute of Medicine found in its Dying in America report. Most people do not document their wishes on end-of-life care and even those who do face a medical system poorly suited to give them the death they want, the authors found. The result is breathing and feeding tubes, powerful drugs and other treatment that often fails to extend life and can make the nal days more unpleasant. The report blamed a fee-for-service medical system in which perverse incentives exist for doctors and hospitals to choose the most aggressive care; inadequate training for those caring for the dying and physicians who default to lifesaving treatment because they worry about liability. Its not an intentional thing. Its a systemic problem, said David Walker, the former U.S. comptroller general, who co-chaired the committee that issued the report. Advance directives including living wills have been unpopular and ineffective, the report said.

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, September 18, 2014 STATE NEWS CLEARWATER (AP) Its like Floridas version of The Blob. Slow moving glops of toxic algae in the northeast Gulf of Mexico are killing sea turtles, sharks and sh, and threatening the waters and beaches that fuel the regions economy. Known as red tide, this particular strain called Karenia brevis is present nearly every year off Florida, but large blooms can be particularly devastating. Right now, the algae is collecting in an area about 60 miles wide and 100 miles long, about 5 to 15 miles off St. Petersburg in the south and stretching north to Floridas Big Bend, where the peninsula ends and the Panhandle begins. Fishermen who make a living off the states northwest coast are reporting sh kills and reddish water. It boils up in the propeller wash like boiled red Georgia clay. Its spooky, said Clearwater sherman Brad Gorst as he steered the charter shing boat Gulfstream 2 in waters near Honeymoon Island, where dead sh recently washed ashore. Red tide kills sh, manatees and other marine life by releasing a toxin that paralyzes their central nervous system. The algae also foul beaches and can be harmful to people who inhale the algaes toxins when winds blow onshore or by crashing waves, particularly those with asthma and other respiratory ailments. In 2005, a strong red tide killed reefs, made beaches stinky and caused millions in economic damage. A weaker red tide in 2013 killed 276 manatees, state records show, after infecting the grasses eaten by the endangered creatures. This red tide ... will likely cause considerable damage to our local sheries and our tourist economy over the next few months, said Heyward Mathews, an emeritus professor of oceanography at St. Petersburg College who has studied the issue for decades. Despite years of study, theres nothing anyone has been able to do about it. In the 1950s, wildlife ofcials tried killing the red tide algae by dumping copper sulfate on it, which made the problem worse in some ways. But some researchers are working to change that. Predicting when red tides are going to be especially bad can help shermen and beach businesses prepare. Right now, much of the information comes from satellite images, which are often obscured by clouds. In this particular red tide, we got a good image on July 23 then we went weeks without another image, said University of South Florida ocean scientist Robert Weisberg. Weisberg is one among a team of researchers developing a prediction model based on ocean currents data, rather than satellite images. The prediction model tracks the currents that bring natural nutrients like phytoplankton the red tide needs to gain a foothold. Unlike other red tide species, Karenia brevis is not believed to be caused by manmade pollution such as agricultural runoff, and historical accounts of what is believed to be the same red tide date back to the 1700s. Using his method, Weisberg in March predicted the current late summer bloom that is now causing so much worry. It allowed state ofcials to issue a warning July 25. While the project recently received rapid response money from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to send a data-collecting robotic glider into the bloom, future funding for this work is in doubt. Weisberg said the team is still trying to develop a model that can look further into the future. But the tides often start far offshore, where gathering data and images can be a time-consuming, expensive undertaking. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has tried to stem this data gap by giving shermen sampling jars to take out to sea with them.Red tide off Florida could erode economy AP FILE PHOTOThis Aug. 23, 2006, photo shows Coquina Beach, Fla., with an algae bloom oshore. | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATEScott, Crist qualify for debate; Wyllie doesntTALLAHASSEE (AP) Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Democrat Charlie Crist are the only candidates that qualify for a Leadership Florida/Florida Press Association debate. Representatives from the groups said Wednesday that Libertarian Adrian Wyllie wont be included in the Oct. 15 debate unless a poll shows he has stronger support by the end of the month. Candidates need at least 15 percent support in a credible poll, including the benet of the polls margin of error. Wyllies campaign said it would ght to be included in the debate and noted the same groups used to set 10 percent support in a poll as the qualifying number, plus the benet of margin of error. That was raised after a Reform Party candidate nearly won a court battle to participate in a 2006 gubernatorial debate.Bonita Springs bans smoking pot in public(News Press) The Bonita Springs City Council voted 7-0 Wednesday to develop an ordinance to ban the smoking of medical marijuana in public, which could become legal if Amendment 2 passes Nov. 4.

The incident unfolded Tuesday afternoon at Elonkas Fashions. Winter Haven police say the man initiated small talk with the clerk before striking her in the head and taking her to the back of the store. He forced her to tell him where her purse was. He continued hitting her, then tied her up and gagged her before leaving the store.

In a 4-1 vote on Tuesday, the council reversed the controversial ordinance. Local NAACP president Loretta Pompey Jenkins applauded the action, saying the issue should be dealt with at home, in church or by community groups instead of by government agencies. She says the ordinance was seen by many as an attempt to target young black men.Citrus grove owners to get help under programST. PETERSBURG (AP) Floridas citrus growers whose groves are affected by a deadly citrus disease can recoup some of the cost of tree removal and replanting under a federal program announced Wednesday. U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said that the Tree Assistance Program is now being extended to Florida growers affected by citrus greening. The program allows farmers to replant or rehabilitate eligible trees, bushes and vines damaged by natural disasters. Under the program, Florida citrus growers will be eligible for up to 50 percent of the cost of the removal of diseased trees, 65 percent of the cost of replanting and labor, and 65 percent of the cost of seedlings. Losses must have occurred on or after Oct. 1, 2011. Vilsack said its important for Florida growers to remove the diseased trees and replant new trees, otherwise the industry will continue to suffer crop and job losses.

KOAT-TV reports New Mexico State Police say the driver called 911 seven hours after investigators failed to find any victims from the crash in Roswell late Friday. The driver, whose name has not been released, told 911 dispatchers that he was lost and found himself surrounded by the animals. Authorities say the man claims he and a passenger were drinking the night before but didnt remember what happened next. Police say the driver suffered injuries to a shoulder and his hands and the passenger suffered back injuries. The driver was issued multiple citations, but the charges havent been released.ODD NEWS Driver says he woke up in field of donkeys perhaps as teenagers and continuing the talks throughout life. The fee-for-service model, the lack of coordination between medical and social services, the challenges that individuals face in nding a provider whos willing and knowledgeable to speak with them about death and dying all conspire against them coming up with the right individual plan, said Dr. Philip Pizzo, a co-chair with Walker. The report praised programs in palliative care, which focus on treating pain, minimizing side effects, coordinating care among doctors and ensuring concerns of patients and their families are addressed. This type of care has expanded rapidly in the past several decades and is now found in a majority of U.S. hospitals, but the report said many physicians have no training in it. In many ways, the report is a repudiation of the controversy created by the term death panel in response to President Barack Obamas health care law. The claim centered on the government saving money by deciding who would live and who would die. In fact, the 500-page report authored by 21 experts said the very type of end-of-life care Americans say they want would shrink medical bills and reduce the governmental burden. They will have a higher quality of life and its very likely to be less expensive, said Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Oregon, a frequent voice on end-of-life issues who reviewed the report. But the main key here is that we should be giving people what they want. Blumenauer has sponsored a bill to allow Medicare to pay doctors for having end-of-life conversations with patients, the very idea that set off the death panel fury, which generated the most widespread and high-prole conver sations on end-of-life care in the U.S. since the case of Terri Schiavo. She was a brain-damaged Florida woman who became the center of a protracted court ght over having her feeding tube removed.CAREFROM PAGE 1 can save anywhere from $1 to $100, but more than that, youll save on your electric bill every month that you have that appliance or product in your house. The discount period isnt anticipated to drive as many shoppers to the stores as the more popular back-to-school tax holiday, which was held in August, or even a tax-free period in June on certain hurricane supplies. Many of the discount items this weekend are considered bigger-ticket items purchased more out of necessity than on a whim refrigerators, clothes washers, dishwashers, swimming pool pumps, water heaters, weather-based irrigation controllers and highefciency toilets. But not everything on the exemption list is a costly purchase, as Energy Star and WaterSense-approved products include light bulbs, air puriers, ceiling fans, shower heads and bathroom sink faucets. State economists, sitting as the Revenue Estimating Conference, have projected that the overall savings for shoppers this weekend could dent the revenue of state and local governments between $890,000 and $2.67 million. By comparison, the same economists projected the holiday period for back-to-school items reduced state revenue by $32.3 million and local revenue to the tune of $7.3 million. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, who pitched the energy-savings tax discount nearly a year ago as part of his 2014 legislative agenda, put the consumer savings around $900,000. But he also sees the products as helping the state long-term. The sales-tax holiday will not only put money back in the pocket of hard-working Floridians, it will also help conserve water and energy for our future generations, Putnam said in a prepared statement. The Tallahassee-based Florida Retail Federation is looking at closer to the $2 million number, expecting the sales-tax discount to be popular for shoppers who have been looking to replace aging appliances. This is a great op portunity for Floridians to upgrade those appliances and make those purchases that theyve been waiting to make, said Samantha Stratton, a federation spokeswoman. Previously, the economic downturn sort of inhibited those purchases. And now that consumers are feeling more condent, theyre ready to go out and make these purchases that will last them longer.HOLIDAYFROM PAGE 1 placed into isolation on Tuesday. The infection marks the rst time an international MSF worker has contracted Ebola. Six local staff have been infected, three of whom died, though it was not clear that they had become sick at work and may have contracted the virus from the communities where they lived. More than 300 health workers have become infected with Ebola in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Nearly half of them have died, according to WHO. At least seven international health care and aid workers already have been taken abroad for treatment, and concerns over health worker infections have made it difcult to recruit the foreign help needed to combat the epidemic. MSF has long had the most stringent infection control protocol against Ebola. While many facilities are working with a fraction of the staff they need, Doctors Without Borders adheres to its rule that every caretaker treating a patient enters the ward with a buddy, who watches the caretaker to ensure his suit doesnt slip, for instance. MSF applies very strict protocols of protection for its staff before, during and after their time in a country affected by the current Ebola outbreak, said Brice de le Vingne, MSF Director of Operations. This dramatically reduces the risk of transmission of the disease. However, the risk is part of such an inter vention, and sadly our teams are not spared. The World Health Organization estimates about 1,500 international health workers are needed to help curb Ebola. President Barack Obama announced Tuesday that he will order 3,000 U.S. military per sonnel to West Africa. The U.S. is also planning on delivering 17 treatment centers with 100 beds each to Liberia. American ofcials expect to have the rst treatment centers open in a few weeks. It is unclear when all of the personnel and equipment will be on the ground. Ebola is believed to have killed at least 2,400 people in the largest outbreak ever and sickened nearly 5,000, though the real toll may be much higher. Also Wednesday, Australia announced that it is providing another $6.4 million to the ght, while Germany is considering providing a mobile hospital and transport planes. The three-hardest hit countries Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea are desperately short of everything needed to contain it, from health workers to the hazard suits needed to protect them. In a $1 billion Ebola plan released on Tuesday, the World Health Organization estimated it might have to evacuate about seven international health workers every month as the outbreak continues. Evacuating sick (health workers) is an awful situation that no one wants to be in, said Dr. Bruce Aylward, WHO assistant-general in charge of emergencies. EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOA man reads a newspaper with headlines about Barack Obamas announcement to send troops to ght the Ebola virus in Monrovia, Liberia, Wednesday. on Obamas authority. Members on both sides of the aisle are very concerned that too much of Congress warmaking power has gone to the president, said Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma. Obamas remarks and similar comments Wednesday by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California seemed designed to reassure liberal lawmakers that the new military mission would be limited. Only a day earlier, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, drew widespread attention when he told Congress he might recommend the use of U.S. ground combat forces if Obamas current strategy fails to stop the militants. Across the political aisle from the president and Pelosi, Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California swung behind the plan. Yet many other Republicans expressed concerns that it would be insufcient to defeat militants who have overrun parts of Syria and Iraq and beheaded two American journalists. In all, 85 Democrats and 71 Republicans voted to deny Obama the authority he sought. The measure passed on the strength of 159 votes from Republicans and 114 from Democrats. GOP lawmakers took solace in the short-term nature of the legislation. It grants Obama author ity only until Dec. 11, giving Congress plenty of time to return to the issue in a post-election session set to begin in mid-November. While the military provision was given a separate vote in the House to tack it onto the spending bill it seemed unlikely there would be a yes-or-no vote in the Senate on Obamas new military strategy to train rebel forces in Saudi Arabia to be used in conjunction with potential U.S. airstrikes. Instead, the Senate is likely to vote only once on the legislation that combines approval for arming and training rebels with the no-shutdown federal spending provisions. Ofcials put a $500 million price tag on Obamas request to train and equip rebels. The cost generated virtually no discussion among lawmakers, who focused instead on the possible consequences of a new military mission not long after America ended participation in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Testifying before a Senate Committee, Secretary of State John Kerry said the forces seeking to create an Islamic state must be defeated. Period. End of story.HOUSEFROM PAGE 1 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) President Barack Obama reafrmed Wednesday that he does not intend to send U.S. troops into combat against the Islamic State group, despite doubts about the ability of Iraqi forces, Kurdish ghters and Syrian rebels to carry out the ground ght on their own. The American forces do not and will not have a combat mission, Obama told troops at MacDill Air Force Base. It was a rm response to suggestions raised Tuesday by his top military commander that, under certain cir cumstances, American ground forces may be needed. Obama said U.S. troops will support Iraqi forces on the ground as they ght for their own country against these terrorists. But, he added, As your commander in chief, I will not commit you and the rest of our armed forces to ghting another ground war in Iraq. On that point, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi was in agreement with Obama and stressed in a Wednesday interview with The Associated Press that he sees no need for other countries to send troops into Iraq to help ght the Islamic State group. Not only is it not necessary, al-Abadi said. We dont want them. We wont allow them. In his remarks, Obama offered a vision of a potent force that can have a major role in conicts, a more forceful view than he has embraced before. But he still stressed that for the effort against the militants to succeed, the U.S. will need to lead the international coalition and local forces must handle a signicant role. Frankly, there just arent a lot of other folks who can perform in the same way. In fact, there are none. There are some things only we can do. There are some capabilities only we have, he said. Our armed forces are unparalleled and unique. So when weve got a big problem somewhere around the world, it falls on our shoulders. Sometimes thats tough. But thats what sets us apart. Thats why were American.Obama reaffirms opposition to US combat in IraqNEW YORK (AP) Using articial sweeteners may set the stage for diabetes in some people by hampering the way their bodies handle sugar, suggests a preliminary study done mostly in mice. The authors said they are not recommending any changes in how people use articial sweeteners based on their study, which included some human experiments. The research ers and outside experts said more study is needed, while industry groups called the research limited and said other evidence shows sweeteners are safe and useful for weight control. The study from researchers in Israel was released Wednesday by the journal Nature. The work suggests the sweeteners change the composition of normal, benecial bacteria in the gut. That appears to hamper how well the body handles sugar in the diet, which in turn can result in higher blood sugar levels.

Thats according to a prediction from GasBuddy.com, the price-tracking website. Company analysts said the nations average gas price should tumble to a range of $3.15 to $3.25 for a gallon of regular. That would make for the cheapest autumn gas since 2010. Motorists in more than 30 states are likely to enjoy prices below $3 at the pump, at least temporarily, GasBuddy said this week. Nationally, the average price for a gallon of regular reached $3.37 Wednesday, the lowest since February.East Ukraine casualties rise as rebels reject dealDONETSK, Ukraine (AP) Shelling in rebel-held parts of east Ukraine killed at least 12 civilians on Wednesday, as a top leader of pro-Russia rebels rejected Ukrainian legislation meant to end the unrest by granting self-rule to large swaths of the east. The city council of Donetsk, the largest rebel stronghold, said that shelling killed two people in the city Wednesday and wounded three others. In a separate statement published online, the press center for Kievs military campaign in the east said that at least 10 civilians in the town of Nyzhnya Krynka, 20 kilometers east of Donetsk, had been killed by shelling. NASA spacecraft reaches Mars this weekendCAPE CANAVERAL (AP) Mars, get ready for another visitor or two. This weekend, NASAs Maven spacecraft will reach the red planet following a 10-month journey spanning 442 million miles. If all goes well, the robotic explorer will hit the brakes and slip into Martian orbit Sunday night. Maven is not designed to land; rather, it will study Mars upper atmosphere from orbit. Hot on Mavens heels is Indias rst interplanetary spacecraft, Mangalyaan, which is due to go into orbit around Mars two days after Maven. Scientists want to learn how Mars went from a warm, wet world that may have harbored microbial life during its rst billion years, to the cold, barren place of today.FedEx to add 50,000 jobsDALLAS (AP) Growth in online shopping is boosting prot at FedEx, and the company plans to hire more than 50,000 extra workers to handle what is shaping up as another record year for holiday-season package deliveries.

Whether or not the woman had her hair styled like this for her burial only is one of our main research questions, said Bos. This particular do was almost certainly styled after death, and slicked into place with animal fat, which kept it preserved. But its possible that the popular styles of the day were equally elaborate.Toronto Mayor to undergo intense chemotherapy (LA Times) Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has cancer and will under go intense chemother apy within 48 hours, his doctor announced Wednesday. Speaking to reporters, Dr. Zane Cohen of Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto said Ford has a rare form of cancer called liposarcoma, which begins in fat cells, most commonly in the abdomen. Doctors believe Ford is battling a fairly aggressive tumor, based on its size. These types of tumors are often slow-growing, Cohen said. To get to the size that it is now, its often several years. A CT scan from 2011 did not show the tumor, and doctors believe it developed in the last two to three years. Asked by reporters how Ford is coping, Cohen said, I think hes reacting like any patient would react. Its difficult.Pakistan airstrikes kill 40 militantsISLAMABAD (AP) Pakistans military launched airstrikes on five militant hideouts in a troubled tribal region near the border with Afghanistan on Wednesday, killing 40 suspected fighters as part of a massive operation that began this summer. EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) For Scots, Wednesday was a day of excitement, apprehension, and a ood of nal appeals before a big decision. In a matter of hours, they will deter mine whether Scotland leaves the United Kingdom and becomes an independent state. A full 97 percent of those eligible have registered to vote including, for the rst time, 16and 17-year-olds in a referendum that polls suggest is too close to call. A phone poll of 1,373 people by Ipsos MORI, released Wednesday, put opposition to independence at 51 percent and support at 49 percent, with 5 percent of voters undecided. That means neither side can feel condent, given the margin of error of about plus or minus three percentage points. Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, himself a Scot, told a No campaign rally that the quiet majority of pro-Union Scots will be silent no more, while pro-independence leader Alex Salmond urged voters to seize a democratic opportunity 307 years in the making. In its nal hours, the battle for Scotland had all the trappings of a normal election cam paign: Yes Scotland and No, Thanks posters in windows, buttons on jackets, leaets on street corners and megaphone-topped campaign cars cruising the streets blasting out Scottish songs and Children of the Revolution. But it is, both sides acknowledge, a once-in-a-generation maybe once-in-a-lifetime choice that could redraw the map of the United Kingdom. The gravity of the imminent decision was hitting home for many voters as political leaders made passionate, nal pleas for their sides. More than 4.2 million people are registered to vote in the country of 5.3 million people. Cathy Chance, who works for Britains National Health Service in the Scottish capital, Edinburgh, said she would leave Scotland if it became independent. I dont want to live under a nation thats nationalistic, she said. I dont think the world needs another political barrier. On the other side, Yes campaigner Roisin McLaren said she was nally letting herself believe independence might be possible.Emotions mount on final day of Scottish campaign AP PHOTOPeople react during a pro-Scottish independence campaign rally, in central Glasgow, Scotland,Wednesday. SEOUL, South Korea (AP) South Korean border guards arrested an American man who they believe was attempting to swim across a river to rival North Korea, a South Korean defense ofcial said Wednesday. The man was apprehended Tuesday night while lying on a bank of the Han River in a restricted military area near the border, said the ofcial, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to ofce policy. The man told investigators that he tried to go to North Korea to meet leader Kim Jong Un, South Koreas Yonhap news agency reported, citing an unidentied government source. It said the man, aged around 29, is a computer repairman from Texas who came to South Korea 10 days ago. South Koreas Defense Ministry and the National Intelligence Service said they couldnt conrm the report. Americans are occasionally arrested after entering North Korea illegally from China, but a U.S. citizen trying to get in from South Korea is unusual. In the 1960s, several U.S. soldiers walked into North Korea while on a patrol near the minestrewn Demilitarized Zone, or DMZ. Those army deserters later appeared in North Korean propaganda lms and taught English there. In 1996, American Evan C. Hunziker entered North Korea by swimming across the Yalu River that marks the Chinese border. Hunziker, who apparently made the swim on a drunken dare, was accused of spying and detained for three months.US man held for alleged swim to N. Korea | WORLD rfntbbbrLIMITED TIME ONLY!

When the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration asked for public input on a proposed rule that would require all cars to have an event data recorder (EDR), commonly called a black box, its website was swamped by more than a thousand comments from people who were concerned about the privacy implications. Comments included, Big Brother is watching! No way should we allow black boxes to be required on all new cars and It is not the role of government to be spying on its citizens. Invasive or not, the information captured by EDRs is just a trickle compared with the ever-growing stream of personal data flowing from our cars and electronic devices. Moreover, we often willingly trade that data for increased safety and convenience. Most people carry a cellphone, which is the most privacy-invading device in the world today, says Fred Cate, director of the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research at Indiana University. So before people go screaming to the state legislature over auto privacy, its worth at least keeping in mind that we have already given up that battle.Six ways to protect your dataThe connected features in todays cars provide many benefits. They include using GPS navigation to get to a destination, pairing a phone to an audio system to play downloaded music or to easily answer calls or using apps in an infotainment system to find food or gas stations. The trade-off is giving away some personal information. But Consumer Reports offers these ways to safeguard it. 1. Stay anonymous. Dont share self-identifying information or publicize your location on social media. Also, dont store an address labeled home in a navigation system; instead, store the address of a public place. 2. Scrub the data. When selling a car, clear the navigation system of recently visited addresses, or adjust the settings so that the system doesnt save locations that you input. Dont download contacts to the cars phone system, and turn off the phones Bluetooth connection to the car when you exit. Keep in mind that a mechanic or valet could easily access personal information if your phone is within range. 3. Read the ne print. Every company has a privacy policy, but many people dont read it. Pay very close attention when you or der any kind of in-car services about what their privacy practices and policies are, says Jay Stanley, a senior policy analyst in the Washington, D.C., office of the American Civil Liberties Union. And do not accept something you dont want. Consumers can use their market power to demand good privacy, he says. 4. Cancel the data flow. If youre selling a car that has a telematics system, like OnStar, or if you decide not to use it anymore, Consumer Reports recommends contacting the company to let it know. Confirm what happens after you opt out and what is done with previously collected data. 5. Dont leave a trail. If youre concerned about the security of other information sent from your car, use cash instead of electronic toll collection devices such as E-ZPass. Also, dont just turn off your cellphone; take out the battery, because phones still have tracking capabilities even when theyre shut off. 6. Think security. Dont leave a portable GPS unit or any other electronic device in your car; take it with you. Lock your glove box if thats where you keep your insurance and registration information. And use a valet key instead of handing over your personal car keys. Your car tracks you NEW YORK (AP) The stock market rose Wednesday after the Federal Reserve told investors to expect low interest rates for a while yet, pushing the Dow Jones industrial average to a record high. After drifting along for most of the day, stocks marched higher after the U.S. central bank released a statement signaling little change in its interest rate policy. The gains were broad, with seven of the 10 industry groups of the Standard & Poors 500 index ended up, led by materials stocks. The Fed statement put to rest an anxious waiting game among investors that has left the S&P 500 moving between small gains and losses for a week. A rise in the short-term rates that the Fed controls has triggered stock drops in the past. The Dow rose 24.88 points, or 0.2 percent, to end at 17,156.85 its 16th record high this year. The S&P 500 edged up 2.59 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,001.57, falling short of its own closing high of 2,007.71 from Sept. 5. The Nasdaq composite was up 9.43 points, or 0.2 percent, to 4,562.19, still well below its dot-com era peak. Shares of home builders jumped after builder condence in the market for new homes rose to its highest level in nearly nine years. Miami-based Lennar Corp. rose nearly 6 percent, the most in the S&P 500 index. In economic news, U.S. consumer prices edged down in August, the rst monthly drop since the spring of 2013, as gasoline, airline tickets and clothing prices all fell. It was the latest evidence that ination remains under control, one of the factors the Fed uses in its decisions on rates. DuPont surged $3.42 to $69.25, or 5.2 percent, the biggest gain in the Dow by far. Investors bought the stock on news that activist investor Nelson Peltz had sent a letter to the companys board suggesting it split in two. His Trian Fund Management LP said it has been in private talks with DuPont for more than a year to boost shareholder value and improve its nancial performance.Dow closes at record after Fed keeps rates intact WASHINGTON (AP) The Federal Reserve signaled Wednesday that it plans to keep a key interest rate at a record low for a considerable period because a broad range of U.S. economic measures remain subpar. The Fed said it intends to keep its benchmark rate near zero as long as ination remains under control, until it sees consis tent gains in wage growth, long-term unemployment and other gauges of the job market. The central bank retained language signaling its plans to keep short-term rates low for a considerable time after it ends its monthly bond purchases after its next meeting in October. In the Feds mind, the economy still has work to do, but its improving, said Mike Arone, an investment strategist with State Street Global Advisors. Stock prices rose after the Fed issued a statement at 2 p.m. Eastern time after a two-day policy meeting. Traders appeared pleased that the Fed seems in no hurry to raise rates. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note ticked up to 2.59 percent from 2.56 percent before the Feds statement. In its statement, the Fed said it will make another $10 billion cut in the pace of its Treasury and mortgage bond purchases, which have been intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The Fed also issued updated forecasts for growth, ination and interest rates. The median short-term rate supported by Fed policymakers at the end of 2015 is now 1.38 percent, up from 1.13 percent at its June meeting. The Fed expects slower growth this year and next than in its last projections issued in June. It predicts that the economy will grow about 2.1 percent this year, down from its June forecast of roughly 2.2 percent. That reduction likely reects the sharp contraction in the rst quarter of this year. The economy has rebounded solidly since then.Fed signals plan to keep key rate at record low 0 0

NORTH PORT The North Port High School volleyball team lost its second straight district match on Wednesday, getting a reminder from defending district champion Lakewood Ranch just how far the Bobcats still have to go. North Port, which lost only one senior to graduation, proved another year of experience paid off by starting the season 4-0. But a sweep at the hands of Sarasota on Tuesday, and a 25-13, 25-15, 25-18 loss to the Mustangs on Wednesday made it clear the Bobcats arent quite ready to join the districts elite. Lakewood Ranch never trailed by more than one point in any game. I think our blocks need to get faster because they run a much faster offense than were used to, Bobcats coach Becky Halbert said. I think our defense needs to get faster. Its just speed and experience, knowing where to put the ball, when to put it certain ways. (Lakewood Ranch) plays a lot in travel ball, theyre very knowledgeable and comfortable. Were getting there, but its still gonna take us some time. Breanna Matthews led the Bobcats with six kills and Allie Moreno added three. Matthews also had three blocks, and Alexis Mootz added 10 assists.

Florida State interim President Dr. Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox announced in a joint statement Wednesday that the quarterback also will undergo internal discipline, but did not provide details of the punishment.

PETERSBURG On Monday, there was a pregame press conference. On Tuesday, there was a pregame ceremony in his honor and a benches-clearing incident in his defense. On Wednesday, there was just baseball. Which is exactly how Derek Jeter would have wanted it. The New York Yankees shortstop went 1 for 4 in his 126th and nal game at Tropicana Field on Tuesday, singling to break an 0 for 28 slump and scoring what proved to be the game-winning run in the sixth inning of the Yankees 3-2 victory. And as he walked off the eld after the game, the crowd of 26,332 rose to give him a standing ovation. Jeter tipped his cap, then ducked into the visitors dugout for the nal time in St. Petersburg. Hes had so many special moments in his career, and weve seen quite a few of them over the course of my time playing against him, Rays third baseman Evan Longoria said. I dont think that was too much of a heroic moment for him, but Im sure he was happy to come out of the slump. It was a relatively quiet night for Jeter after a loud one on Tuesday.

But playing hockey as a goaltender was really his passion and focus from the time he was 4 years old. Hockey was my thing, Fletcher said. I thought hockey was my ticket. I just got stressed out my senior year in high school. I just put a lot of pressure on myself. I was playing at a high level through high school. It was just a lot. I was over it. So I fell back on football and luckily it worked out. With starting middle linebacker Mason Foster out for at least two games with a separated shoulder, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fallback plan at that position is Fletcher, who will be responsible tonight for directing the defense against the No. 1 offense in the NFL. Atlanta Falcons quar terback Matt Ryan leads the league with 679 passing yards and is tied for fourth in touchdown passes with four. He has explosive receiver Julio Jones (14 catches, 204 yards, TD) and a capable running game with Steven Jackson. The Bucs defense has produced only one turnover and three sacks. The Bucs are 14th in the NFL in total defense and tied for 12th in points allowed with 19.5 per game. Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy is questionable with a broken hand. Combined with defensive end Adrian Clayborn and cornerback Mike Jenkins, who have been placed on injured reserve, Tampa Bay could be without four starters on defense. Nose tackle Clinton McDonald could move to McCoys under tackle position while Akeem Spence would get the start at nose.

On the same day Scotland votes on whether to become independent, a historic sporting decision will be made inside arguably the most famous building in golf. The Royal & Ancient Golf Club in St. Andrews, an all-male bastion since its founding 260 years ago, votes today whether to admit women members. For the rst time, the R&A is allowing its 2,500 worldwide members to vote by proxy. I think its the right thing, R&A club secretary Peter Dawson said during its spring meeting in May, and I hope that R&A members do whats right for golf. While a No decision is the marginal favorite in the independence referendum, the R&A vote should be more clear-cut at its annual business meeting at St. Andrews. We wouldnt be enter ing this if we didnt feel there was strong member support for it, Dawson has said. The club said a favor able vote would take effect immediately. We would hope to have a meaningful number of women become members in a reasonable time scale, the club said in a statement. The rst women members are likely to have made a signicant contribution to the development of our sport.

The Sun /Thursday, September 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 press conference, saying: I have to tone it down. The Heisman Trophy winner has made similar comments after previous incidents and Florida State seems to be growing less tolerant of his discretions. While playing for the Florida State baseball team, he was suspended for three games and completed 20 hours of community service after acknowledging he stole $32 worth of crab legs from a local grocery store in April. Before the football season, he said he had matured, learned what it takes to be a leader and understood that he needed to be more careful in his personal life. The school president and AD admonished him Wednesday for doing just the opposite. As the universitys most visible ambassadors, student-athletes at Florida State are expected to uphold at all times high standards of integrity and behavior that reect well upon themselves, their families, coaches, teammates, the Department of Athletics and Florida State University, their joint statement said. Studentathletes are expected to act in a way that reects dignity and respect for others. Winstons latest poor judgment comes when Florida State is under scrutiny. The university is currently under investigation by the Department of Education for the way it handles reports of sexual assault, including a case involving Winston. The investigation was prompted by a complaint from a FSU student who says Winston assaulted her in 2012. State Attorney Willie Meggs declined to press charges against Winston last fall. A lawyer for the woman said the university is currently conducting its own investigation of that incident. Winston has had other run-ins with police since enrolling at the university. Police questioned Winston and other FSU players in November 2012 after 13 windows were broken at an apartment complex near Doak Campbell Stadium after an apparent BB gun battle. That same month, Winston and teammate Chris Casher were held at gunpoint by campus police for hunting squirrels. The two told police they were shooting squirrels with a pellet gun along a bike trail. Police were also called after a Burger King employee called to complain that Winston was stealing soda. Winston was not arrested in any of those three incidents.WINSTONFROM PAGE 1 JAMEIS WINSTONS STATEMENTOn Wednesday, Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston gave a statement in which he apologized for lewd comments. I just want to apologize to my university, my coaches and my teammates. Im not a me person, but in that situation it was a selfish act, Winston said. Thats not how you do things. I really want to apologize to my teammates because I have now made a selfish act for them. contributions from Scott Solomon, Jacquies Smith and Larry English on some passing downs. Its going to take guys coming into their role, from me to DaQuan to Clint to Will to Scott, Spence said. Its going to take a total effort on the defense. And our offense, theyre going to get it rolling. Weve got to scratch and claw, man. Were 0-2, got a division game coming up. Its a quick turnaround. Perhaps no player will be more important on defense tonight than Fletcher, 28, a converted defensive end from Montana State who began his career as an undrafted free agent with the Patriots. Fletcher not only made an improbable position switch to linebacker, but he forged a pretty good career as a knockout special-teams player. Hes a player that we went out to get, that kind of tells you, coach Lovie Smith said. We watched him on video; he has excellent speed, hes good in space and hes been a good special-teams player for us. As you look at our history, you talked about (Warren Sapp) a little while ago, as you look at our history, Shelton Quarles, Jeff Gooch, guys who have come in and had been special-teams players, before they moved into a permanent role at the linebacker position. This is a normal progression for a Tampa Bay linebacker for me and hes a smart guy. At 6 feet 2, 240 pounds, Fletcher is bigger than some Bucs linebackers. And he has never been asked to handle the mental part of the game, quarterbacking the defense, getting the calls and lining up players. When Dane got in the ball game (Sunday), he did some good things, defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said. Its tough when youre not getting as many reps in practice on some of the things you have to do in the game. But, for the most part, we were pleased with his work. With this week being a short week, he still wont get as many reps. But hell be able to get some film study and prepare and I think hell go out and play well . Fletcher said he wont be overwhelmed by the moment. You know what? Im past the whole moment thing, Fletcher said.BUCSFROM PAGE 1 MANHATTAN, Kan. Kansas State coach Bill Snyder was busy revolutionizing the spread offense, and the idea of a run-pass quarterback, at college footballs highest level during the 1990s. Gus Malzahn was watching it all transpire while coaching high schools in Arkansas. Tonight, two of the most innovative coaches of their respective generations will match wits under the lights with a national TV audience. Malzahn is coaching fth-ranked Auburn (2-0), and the Tigers will be visiting the No. 20 Wildcats (2-0) for a nonconference showdown. Being a high school coach way back when, I had a lot of respect for him, the way hes built the program, Malzahn said of the 74-year-old Snyder, who returned from a brief retirement a few years ago to rebuild the program that he rst put on the map. I think hes one of the better coaches to ever walk the planet, Malzahn added. You can turn on the game lm and you can see why. They execute offense and defense and the special teams, and they get the most out of their players. Thats what really stands out to me. What stands out to Snyder is the similarity in their offenses. Both feature an athletic quarterback. Both use elements of the read-option, and then create a variety of looks from the same basic sets. And both have proven that the run game is still a vital part of success in an era of pass-happy offenses. They are still a pretty broad package in regards to their offense, which is similar to us, Snyder said. Your preparation has to be broad-based as well and be prepared for all of it. That preparation should be somewhat easy for both teams. Since they share so many similarities, Kansas State and Auburn has easily replicated their opponent in practice the past few weeks. The Wildcats have been able to mimic the ashy running style of Tigers quarterback Nick Marshall and the up-tempo, no-huddle approach that carried Auburn to the national title game last year. The Tigers have been able to break down and impersonate Wildcats quarterback Jake Waters, one of the most accurate passers in major college football. We denitely respect them, Waters said, but we also know that they are trying to come in here and smack us around and beat us. We have to have that same attitude and that condence that we can play with anyone in the country. We respect them but were not scared of them.Auburn, K-State share offensive similarities COLLEGE FOOTBALLBy DAVE SKRETTAASSOCIATED PRESS WHO: No. 5 Auburn (2-0) at No. 20 Kansas State (2-0) WHEN: Today, 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Bill Snyder Family Stadium, Manhattan, Kan. TV: ESPN CORAL GABLES Any die-hard Hurricanes fan worth their orange and green could tell you a few stories about the Florida Gators. They could spin a couple yarns about Notre Dame. They could talk your ear off about Florida State. You bet Nebraskas in that category, too. Few teams in college footballs modern era have earned more hardware or played each other with higher stakes than the Hurricanes and Huskers. Miami and Nebraska have earned ve national titles apiece. Since 1970, only Alabama (eight) can claim more. They have played each other 10 times, splitting the series. Miami has won four of the past ve meetings all of which have come in a bowl game, and four of which have decided national championships. Mention Nebraska to one of those Hurricane lifers, offensive line coach Art Kehoe, and hell tell you about the 1983 season, which ended with UM, a 13-point under dog, facing top-ranked Nebraska in the Orange Bowl. The memories are unbelievable, said Kehoe, a graduate assistant that season. He remembers watching other teams in the national title hunt lose, setting up a UMNebraska title game. He recalls entering a raucous stadium to a standing ovation, nearly two hours before kickoff. Etched in his mind forever is the Huskers failed two-point conversion that sealed a 31-30 win and UMs rst national championship. It was the greatest win, for me, Kehoe said. I still think it was the biggest win in the history of our program. Saturdays game will not carry those implications, but the history of this series is tough to match. The rst game was played Nov. 30, 1951 at Burdine Stadium, later renamed the Orange Bowl. The Hurricanes beat the Huskers 19-7 in front of 32,283 fans. UM lost in Lincoln in 1953, 1975 and 1976. The Huskers were a top-ve team in the latter two years. Sandwiched between those losses was the 1962 game, which was played at Yankee Stadium and called the Gotham Bowl. It was UMs rst bowl game, a 36-34 loss in frigid conditions reportedly attended by just a few thousand people. The Canes had better luck after that. After the 1983 championship, UM beat the Huskers in the 1989 Orange Bowl and the 1992 Orange Bowl, which gave the Hurricanes their fourth national title. Undefeated Nebraska beat Miami in the 1995 Orange Bowl to win a title of its own. The last time the teams played, unbeaten UM celebrated its fth national title in the 2002 Rose Bowl. That was the season that made Hurricanes fans out of many current Hurricanes. The title game, a 37-14 win, was the rst UM game true freshman quarterback Brad Kaaya remembers watching. He was only 6, but he was hooked. Ever since then, Ive always wanted to go to the U, said Kaaya, who hung in his dorm a picture of then-quar terback Ken Dorsey and receiver Andre Johnson hoisting the crystal ball, for inspiration. COLLEGE FOOTBALL: MiamiAP FILE PHOTONebraska quarterback Eric Crouch carries the ball against Miami during the 88th Rose Bowl in 2002 in Pasadena, Calif. Miami won to claim its fth national title. It was the last time the two teams, who meet Saturday in Lincoln, played. Hello again, HuskersHurricanes head to Lincoln to renew rivalry By MATT PORTERCOX NEWSPAPERS HURRICANES AT CORNHUSKERSWHO: Miami (2-1) at Nebraska (3-0) WHEN: Saturday, 8 p.m. WHERE: Tom Osborne Field at Memorial Stadium, Lincoln, Neb. TV: ESPN2 RADIO: 820 AM, 1040 AM NFL NOTEBOOKDwyer arrested on assault chargesPHOENIX Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer was arrested Wednesday on aggravated assault charges in connection with two altercations at his home in July involving a woman and their 18-month-old child, the latest in a string of such cases involving NFL players. The Cardinals said they became aware of the situation on Wednesday and are cooperating with the investigation. Dwyer has been deactivated from all team activities. The NFL said the case will be reviewed under its personal-conduct policy. One of the counts was aggravated assault causing a fracture involving the 27-year-old victim, whom they did not identify. Police said they were carrying out a search warrant of his residence in pursuit of more evidence. There was no reply to telephone message left for Dwyers agent, Adisa Bakari, seeking a comment Wednesday. Authorities depicted a stormy relationship between Dwyer and the woman that escalated into violence on July 21, four days before the Cardinals reported to training camp. Peterson, Hardy placed on exempt list: Less than two days after announcing that they were reinstating running back Adrian Peterson to the active roster, the Minnesota Vikings changed course. The Vikings placed Peterson, who faces a child-abuse charge, on the NFLs exempt/commissioners permission list until his case is resolved. The move will keep him from participating in team activities, including games, for the foreseeable future. We made a mistake and we need to get this right, Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said. It is important to always listen to our fans, the community and our sponsors. Also Wednesday, Carolina placed defensive end Greg Hardy on the exempt list. Greg is part of this football team. Weve done nothing other than grant him a leave of absence. Hes still being paid, said coach Ron Rivera. Hardy and agent Drew Rosenhaus left team headquarters during practice after a meeting with Rivera and general manager Dave Gettleman. Hardy would not appear to be in position for a rapid resolution in his domestic abuse case. He was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend and communicating threats in May and was found guilty in July. He is appealing for a jury trial. Around the league: Celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred made charges that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell ignored domestic-violence complaints filed against Brandon Marshall back in 2009. Allred appeared at a press conference in Atlanta with Kristeena Spivey, who accused the now-Chicago Bears wide receiver of abusing her friend Rasheedah Watley, and father Clarence Watley. These arent new accusations toward Marshall, but Allred and her clients are referencing them in their criticism of Goodell and the NFL. ... The NFL and NFL Players Association reached agreement to a revamped policy on performance-enhancing substances that includes the use of third-party arbitration appeals of positive tests and implementation of testing for human growth hormone. The NFL and NFLPA also said that they are nearing an agreement on changes to the substance-abuse policy. Discipline of players for certain violations in the 2014 league year will be adjusted to reflect the new policy. Wide receiver Wes Welker of the Denver Broncos, cornerback Orlando Scandrick of the Dallas Cowboys and wide receiver Stedman Bailey of the St. Louis Rams were immediately eligible to return and play this week. ... Wide receiver DeSean Jackson of the Washington Redskins said he will play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, his former team, despite a left shoulder injury. ... Wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle) of the Atlanta Falcons went through a full practice without limitations and was listed as probable for tonights game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. ... Colin Kaepernick said he has been fined more than $11,000 by the NFL and he will appeal the penalty for what an official called inappropriate language following a fourth-quarter interception in Sundays 28-20 loss to the Bears.FROM WIRE REPORTS TIGERS AT WILDCATS

Pirates power past Red Sox PITTSBURGH Gregory Polanco, Neil Walker and Ike Davis all homered and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Boston Red Sox 9-1 on Wednesday night to maintain their grip on the second National League wild card spot. Polanco and Walker hit solo shots off Boston starter Clay Buchholz (8-9) and Davis drilled a three-run blast to center off reliever Steven Wright. The Pirates have won 10 of 12 and improved to a season-high 11 games over .500 (81-70). Francisco Liriano (6-10) won his third straight start, allowing one run in six innings. The lefthander has given up two runs or less in 11 of his 12 starts since the All-Star break. Boston rookie center fielder Rusney Castillo went 1 for 4 in his major league debut. The Cuban defector signed a sevenyear, $72.5-million deal with the Red Sox last month. Boston has lost three of four. Orioles 6, Blue Jays 1: In Baltimore, Steve Pearce homered twice and drove in four runs as the AL East champion Orioles beat Toronto for a three-game sweep. Pearces 20 homers this year are three more than the 31-year-old had previously in his entire career. Indians 2, Astros 0: In Houston, Carlos Carrasco threw a two-hitter with a career-high 12 strikeouts to lead Cleveland. Royals 6, White Sox 2: In Kansas City, Mo., Lorenzo Cain hit a three-run home and the Royals roughed up Chicago ace Chris Sale to keep the pressure on Detroit in the AL Central. Cardinals 2, Brewers 0: In St. Louis, Adam Wainwright posted his 19th win as Cardinals beat Milwaukee to maintain a 2-game lead in the NL Central. Cubs 3, Reds 1: In Chicago, Kyle Hendricks kept up his impressive rookie season, pitching seven strong innings as the Cubs beat Cincinnati, improving to 38-36 at Wrigley Field despite being 16 games under .500 overall. Marlins 4, Mets 3: In New York, Henderson Alvarez ended a threestart winless streak as Miami beat the Mets to finish a trying 10-game trip, during which they lost All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton to a season-ending injury when he was hit in the face by a pitch. Braves 3, Nationals 1: In Atlanta, Christian Bethancourt had a three-run single to help the Braves beat Washington to preserve their fading playoff hopes. Rockies 16, Dodgers 2: In Denver, Justin Morneau tied a season high with six RBIs five in an eight-run first inning against spot starter Carlos Frias as Colorado routed Los Angeles. Giants 4, Diamondbacks 2: In Phoenix, pinch-hitter Matt Duffy had a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning for San Francisco.Wild Card glanceAMERICAN LEAGUE W L Pct GB Oakland* 83 67 .553 Kansas City 83 68 .550 Seattle* 81 69 .540 1 Cleveland 78 73 .517 5 Toronto 77 74 .510 6 Late games not includedNATIONAL LEAGUE W L Pct GB San Francisco 84 68 .553 Pittsburgh 81 70 .536 Milwaukee 79 73 .520 2 Atlanta 76 76 .500 5 MLB ROUNDUPBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS to four ovations and hit ground balls four times. The third one bounded up the middle for a single, and he came around to score on center elder Brett Gardners sacrice y. The sixth-inning hit was Jeters 317th in 260 games against the Rays and 145th hit at Tropicana Field. He nishes his career against the Yankees AL East foes with a .298 batting aver age, 21 home runs, 124 RBIs, 184 runs and one of the most memorable moments of his storied career: Jeters 3,000th hit was a home run off former Rays ace David Price at Yankee Stadium on July 9, 2011. His 126 games, 145 hits and 80 runs scored are all highs by a visitor at Tropicana Field. I have a lot of respect for Derek. Last year, (Mariano) Rivera went through the same kind of situation, Rays manager Joe Maddon said. These are iconic baseball players. I feel fortunate to have been a manager working actually against them. Seeing them on the eld and how theyve played, they made me better in regards to what I do just by watching them, and theyve made us better because theyve pushed us over the last couple of years. Its a tting end to his career. Jeter, who rst moved to Tampa in 1994, has been here longer than the Rays have. Tampa is the site of the Yankees Himes Avenue spring training complex, and living there gave him opportunities that Michigan winters did not. He wanted more time to train with his coaching staff in the warm weather of Florida. He wanted everyone to see how hard I was working. Back then, he couldnt wait to leave Tampa. Even though he lived there full-time, he was homesick every day. Speaking at Tropicana Field on Monday, Jeter said he spent a lot of nights crying and wondering, What am I doing here far away from home? Twenty years later, this is home for Jeter. After he plays his nal game in pinstripes, Jeter will start his retirement in a 30,875-square-foot Tampa mansion affectionately known as St. Jetersburg. So while Wednesday might have been Jeters nal time playing at the Trop, Maddon hopes it isnt the last time he sees the Yankees captain in the building. The fact that hes going to be living here next season, I really hope he would choose to come on by here at different times. Id love to be able to visit with him on a more consistent basis, Maddon said. Hopefully Im going to get a chance to know him better. Thats whats funny about his Tropicana Field farewell; its not really a goodbye. I fell in love with this area a long, long time ago, Jeter told reporters on Monday. This is home for me. I dont plan on going anywhere.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com.JETERFROM PAGE 1This is home for me.

Major League Baseball executive Joe Torre said in a statement Wednesday that West admitted that there was a better way to handle the situation. Papelbon was suspended seven games and ned Monday for making a lewd gesture and then bumping West. The right-hander has insisted he wasnt making a vulgar motion toward fans as he walked off the eld to boos after giving up four runs in the ninth inning of Philadelphias 5-4 loss to the Miami Marlins on Sunday. West served the suspension Wednesday night instead of working his assigned game between the New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg. Barry Bonds gets another attempt to overturn his obstruction of justice conviction when an 11-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals hears arguments in his case today. At his trial in 2011, a jury deadlocked on three counts charging him with making false statements when he denied receiving steroids and human growth hormone from trainer Greg Anderson and denied receiving injections from Anderson or his associates. Umpire Tim Welke ejected a foul-mouthed fan heckling Bryce Harper from Turner Field in Atlanta during Tuesday nights game between the Washington Nationals and Braves. Welke said he told Harper that its OK for fans to boo, but it isnt OK to use such profane language. Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman is appealing his six-game suspension that Major League Baseball imposed for throwing at the head of Baltimores Caleb Joseph. MLB also fined the 23-year-old rookie an undisclosed amount. Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton will not play again this season because of last weeks beaning. Stanton was hit in the face by a fastball from Milwaukees Mike Fiers last Thursday and sustained facial fractures, dental damages, cuts that required stitches and two black eyes.

SHORE@SUN-HERALD.COMRobSHORESPORTS WRITER PORT CHARLOTTE Marisa Beisner was in tears Thursday night after a win at Port Charlotte High School. The Charlotte senior had what coach Michelle Dill said was her best game of the season and notched 15 kills and a trio of aces. But Beisner had more reasons than that to be emotional. Her older sister JaNhea, a Tarpons standout and 2013 graduate was in the crowd, and she brought along few friends. JaNhea is in her second year of volleyball at State College of Florida, a school Marisa signed with before the season. As a gift to her sister, JaNhea brought the Manatees volleyball team to the game to surprise her. Wow, that is so awesome, Marisa said through tears post-game. I had no idea she was doing that. That was the best thing thats happened, it was even better than (beating Port Charlotte). Just winging it: Lemon Bays Bree Soucy was crowned the fastest wing-eating female Saturday at The End Zone in Englewood. The restaurant held the contest, which had two athletes from each Lemon Bay sports team, to benefit the athletic department. Soucy, a senior middle hitter, ate her allotted 20 wings faster than any other female athlete, and was bested only by football player and champion Shawn Porter, who beat Soucy by a single wing. We think we can! Inspiration comes in the oddest of places, and on Thursday North Port found its boost in a book coach Becky Halbert found in her elementary-school son Brodys bookbag that day. The Bobcats read The Little Engine that Could during a pregame meeting that Halbert said lit the fire. Right before this game, it sounded just like us, she said. Were like this little blue engine thats small and everyone is like, No way, no way, no way, they cant do it, but I told the girls to go out there and try and not give up, and I think we all learned a lot from (Brodys) book. The Bobcats ended up losing a hotly contested match to powerhouse Sarasota, but definitely did not lose the lesson. Hey, dont I know you? Aside from the elder Beisner, this weeks Tarpons-Pirates rivalry brought out a few familiar faces, as former middle-hitting standouts and 2014 graduates Jenny DAlessandro and Autumn Scott (Charlotte), and Courtney Robertson (Port Charlotte) all showed support for their alma maters. The Tarpons won 3-1, and the teams will meet a final time Oct. 13 at Charlotte.

Port Charlotte will go to Venice at 7 p.m. the same day. Pirates sisters Hope and Faith Parks are Indians transfers this season.Former mates face offBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITERPORT CHARLOTTE Zach Couto spent much of his sophomore season playing alongside Tate Smith. On Monday, the Community Christian School junior played alongside him again. Only this time, Smith was wearing a Port Charlotte High School shirt instead of the Mustangs one he donned last year. It was a little bit of a different atmosphere, Couto said. But denitely fun. Smith transferred to Port Charlotte after last season, and Couto took over as Community Christians No. 1 golfer. Couto has gotten off to a solid start, consistently shooting in the high-30s. Ive been putting up some good numbers this year, Couto said. But I feel like I can improve. Id like to improve. Just keep working. He didnt get the better of his former teammate on Monday at Deep Creek Golf Club, though: Couto shot a 40 to nish two strokes behind Smith. I like playing with good competition, Couto said. It makes things fun. Short games: A lot of golf professionals will tell you that a good short game is the key to scoring well. North Port coach Steve Posilovich knows it to be true. Thats why hes placed such an emphasis on it during practice. Posilovich thinks his Bobcats have the ability to shave some strokes off their team score by improving around the green. To help that process, North Port has played match play on the putting green and held chipping contests during practice. Posilovich also had his team play the par-5 ninth hole at Heron Creek Golf and Country Club four consecutive times during one early season practice. Someone played this hole four times and went driver, 8-iron to right there, Posilovich said, pointing to a spot on the fairway a little more than 100 yards away from the green, and then their next shot was an approach shot. Four times, four different scores, because they cant play around the green. They know how to play on the course, so were going to be focusing a lot this year on the little games (around the green). Competitive nature: Haylee McBee hasnt been a golfer for very long. The Charlotte senior picked up the game just a few weeks before the season began, so she has a very limited amount of experience. That hasnt stopped her from breaking into the Tarpons starting lineup, though. McBee is a staunch competitor, coach Josh Hoffart said, so she wasnt going to accept not making fast improvements. McBee shot a 61 at Port Charlotte Golf Club on Tuesday to help lead Charlotte to a tri-match win over Lemon Bay and Port Charlotte.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com. PREP GOLF NOTEBOOK third game, when North Port rallied from down 14-9 to tie it at 17. But the euphoria of that game-ty ing point lasted just a few seconds as the Mustangs scored to start an 8-1 run to end the match. We denitely have some work to do, but I like that we fought hard to the end, Halbert said. We didnt roll over and let them beat us. I feel like it looked like our girls genuinely believed we still could take a game, right up to the last point. Aspen Davidson led the Bobcats defense with 14 digs. Libero Kailyn Duyn added 13 digs and Mootz added 11, including one with her foot. Davidson, a senior, said this is the best team shes played for at North Port, but knows the Bobcats still have plenty of room to improve to get on Lakewood Ranchs level. They always hit the ball aggressive and they always hit the ball to the corners, she said. They always hit the ball down the line, so we need to hit the ball better. North Port continues district play Wednesday with a match at Braden River.BOBCATSFROM PAGE 1

She wanted to write a letter about one of our local hot-button issues: Getting buzzed by an incon siderate boater while youre out shing on the ats. Her concern was that she might be subject to reprisal if she openly expressed her opinion with her name attached to it. I get where shes coming from. If someones willing to swamp your boat with their wake just because you happen to be in their path, what might they do if you called them out on it? These days, theres a lot of information oating around online about most of us. Type your name into a Google search and youll probably be able to come up with a phone number, an address and sometimes more. So why dont I want to publish her letter anon ymously? Well, thats a can of worms. Basically, it comes down to accountability. If someone wants to say something rude or nasty in person, theyll often hold their tongue. Most of us restrain ourselves (at least to some degree) to maintain harmony. Were social creatures by nature, and ghting goes against that grain. You might need a favor from the target of your ire at some time in the future. But if no one can see your face or recognize your voice, youre much more free to say exactly how you feel. Total honesty. This is a good thing, right? Sure to a point. If you want to see what happens when people can say anything they want with no fear of reprisal, check out any news website that allows public commentary. It gets nasty. Too much freedom is too much. Most of us become tiny tyrants, our personal opinion kingdoms protected by moats and walls of namelessness. Even if thats not you (and it probably is, if youre honest with yourself), there are other dangers in anonymity. Some folks like to start res, or throw gas on embers that are already burning. Its a lot easier to do if youre wearing a mask and cant be judged for it. The woman who wrote to me suggested that by requiring a letter writers name, were shying away from controversy and just becoming a nicey-nice publication. I disagree. We have no problem talking about controversial things when it becomes necessary. Federal reef sh allocations, Internet bashing of fellow anglers, ring range troubles, no-motor zones all of these and many other issues have appeared in our pages. But every time, the piece has had a writer, and that writer has been clearly identied. Contro versy should be a way to start a conversation, not just throwing rocks. I know that some folks in the publishing business like to use controversy as a way to increase circulation, but I believe the long-term eects of that strategy are overall strongly negative. Remember, our focus is on recreation. Recre ation is what you do to get away from your everyday cares and troubles. Sometimes we bring up controversial topics, but we do it because they are likely to aect your ability to enjoy your recre ation time. Id really much rather devote more ink to the fun and pleasure of the outdoors than shove a problem in your face. I appreciate every WaterLine reader, and I value all of your opinions, positive or negative. Many of you who have talked to me in person know that if you compliment the magazine, I usually ask you what you dont like about it or what we could do better. Thats not for a show of humility thats my best tool to improve the magazine. Reader suggestions have shaped this publication from the beginning, and that will continue. So if you want to talk about something, send us your letters. But be prepared to stand behind what you say. Someone out there probably disagrees with you. In the past, weve let a few letters slide without the writers name. This email was a good wake-up for me, because it made me think about the problems associated with that. Going forward, well be strict about adhering to our own policy. And if you have a suggestion for us, those are always welcome too. Drop me a line or give me a call; my info is near the top of the blue column on the left side of this page. I look forward to hearing from you. Send me a letter FROM THE PUBLISHERS DESK JOSH OLIVE Letters are welcome on any outdoor-related subject, but we do have some rules. Please keep them to less than 250 words.

The U.S. 41 bridges have been good for snook at night. The passes and nearby docks have also been producing plenty; sh whitebait on an incoming tide. The trout bite is also picking up around the passes. They like shrimp under a popping cork, or try topwaters at rst light and dusk. Redsh are hanging around the Lemon Bay oyster bars.

Cobia to 30 pounds have been caught on deeper wrecks, and youll have fun with catch-andrelease amberjack out there. Kingsh are just starting to make a showing.

F ISHING R ULES Scientists with the FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) are asking snook anglers to save their lleted carcasses and take them to a participating bait and tackle store in their area. These carcasses provide information on the size, age, maturity and sex of the catch. This program allows anglers to participate in the collection of data regarding Floridas premier inshore game sh. FWRI conducts applied research and provides scientic information used to manage Floridas marine resources. GUIDELINES FOR DONATING SNOOK CARCASSES All regulations apply. Donate only legal snook during open snook season. Donate all sizes that you harvest. (Donating only large sh will bias the data.) Donate as many sh and as often as you can; however, do not harvest sh for the program. Keep only those snook you would normally keep. Donate both tagged and untagged sh. If a snook is tagged, please report tag information to the Angler Tag Return Hotline at 800-367-4461. When lleting, please leave all internal organs intact.

Page 8 September 18, 2014 Have you looked outside lately and felt a little down in the dumps? Have you noticed that the leaves on the trees have started to change from bright green to beautiful orange, yellow and brown colors and that a small portion of them have already fallen from their branches to the ground below? How about that refreshing nip in the air when you go outside rst thing in the morning? You know, the one that makes you say, Wow, I think I need a sweater this morning. If you answered yes to any of these ques tions, then thank you for reading Waterline Weekly from your computer while you sit in the comfort of your home up north because if you were down here, you sure as heck wouldnt be noticing any of that stu. The autumnal equinox here will be Sept. 22 at 10:29 p.m. this year. This marks the ocial start of the fall season. As most of you know, autumn is synonymous with melancholy, particularly up north, because it instigates the drop of outside temperatures and starts the decline in benecial daylight not to mention the depressing gray skies that go along with this season. One of the denitions of autumn by Merriam-Webster is a period of maturity or incipient decline. That denition makes me sad because to me its saying every thing is getting old and is about to die. Thank God I live in Southwest Florida, because all autumn means to me is that huge schools of kingsh and Spanish mackerel and hordes of blacktip sharks are coming into our area, and I might not sweat to death catching them. If I were a snowbird, Id be packing my bags ASAP. The Farmers Almanac is predicting an early and bitterly cold winter this year. When you arrive, theres a bunch of shing guides down here just champing at the bit to put you on some incredible sh. So, what do we catch around here in fall? Well, heres a short list: Sharks, tarpon, snook, trout, redsh, ounder, grouper, snapper, Spanish mackerel, bluesh, ladysh and jacks. Thats a pretty good list of sh if I do say so myself, but that list is pretty much what we catch year round in our area. With each seasonal change each species moves inshore, oshore, up Harbor, down Harbor but theyre pretty much always here. You just have to nd them. Think of each season as a new game of hide-and-seek, and youre always it. I left my own personal favorite autumn sh o the list above. Kingsh are what I get most excited about this time of year. Kings only grace our area in large numbers for a few weeks each spring as they head north and then again in the fall when they return south. The spring run brings more sh to us, but the fall run carries the big boys (aka smokers, sh 40 pounds and bigger). With wind and weather always playing a factor in spring and fall, we usually only have small windows of opportu nity to successfully target them. When those windows open, be it for a few days or a few hours, jump on them if youre able. Start out looking just o the beaches and keep roaming west for as far as youre comfort able traveling. I nd that the true smoker kings tend to stay within a few miles of the beaches or just inside the big pass (Boca Grande) this time of year. If what youre after is sheer numbers, head out to some of the Gulfs wrecks or reefs. The smaller (snake) kings tend to travel in large numbers and like structure that holds good bait pods, whereas the larger kings seem to hang around the bait pods that are scattered closer to the beaches. Its not often youll nd small sh mixed in with the bigger sh because, well, theyre in danger of getting eaten. Now, as far as what youre looking for to nd these sh, seek out action lots of action. If you see a bait pod, nervous water, birds diving or sh busting the top of the water, you should give that area a good once-over. If there is bait in an area, you can pretty much be assured there will be kings or Spanish macks in and around it. If you see Spanish mackerel terror izing a bait pod, dont ignore it. Drag or toss your bait of choice into the frenzy and hold on tight, because Spanish mackerel are one of the kingshs favorite meals. So what do I use for bait? I will answer that question in my next column, so youll have to wait. If youre not a patient person, then let me suggest you call me Saturday morning during the Waterline Radio Hour, airing from 9 to 10 a.m. on 1580 AM WCCF here in Port Charlotte. If you cant tune it, nd us on the Internet at iHeartRADIO, which you can link to through our website, RadioWaterLine.com wow, how much easier can we make it for you? I guess you could go to one of our local tackle shops to nd out what theyre hitting on, but calling us will be way more fun. Tight lines.Capt.

Page 9 September 18, 2014 I will be out on the beach on Manasota Key this Saturday morning picking up trash. That is how I spend every weekend that I can manage to get away from Peace River Wildlife Center. The unusual thing about this weekend is that I will not be the only one. This weekend marks the 28th anniversary of the Interna tional Coastal Cleanup. I will be joined, at least in spirit, by kindred people from all over the globe. According to Ocean Conservancys website, last year an astounding 648,015 volunteers in 92 countries picked up more than 12.3 million pounds of trash in their respective sites. The Coastal Cleanup is not oered as a solu tion to the problem of pollution, but rather as a snapshot of what is fouling the worlds waterways in a given moment in time. People from around the area, across the country, and around the world will be pitching in to help protect the worlds oceans, lakes and rivers. This is a wonderful way to bring attention to the sheer volume of garbage that ends up in and near our waterways and to the potential damage that can be done by all that waste. I love this idea so much I dont just do it once a year. That is why I can often be found patrolling the beach from Stump Pass Park to Blind Pass Beach with a bag in my hands. While many of the people I pass have bags full of shells and shark teeth, my treasures are literally trash. My family and friends nd my pastime a little odd. I can only imagine what passing strangers must think. As a wildlife veter inarian I like to think of it as preventive medicine. Every plastic bag I pick up is one less intestinal obstruction for a sea turtle that would have mistaken it for a delicious jellysh. The dangling strings from those burst helium balloons, released with the best of intentions to celebrate a wedding or honor the beloved deceased, will not get wrapped around some poor birds feet, wings or beak or all three, as is often the case. Each renegade shing hook I discover is one less nasty puncture in the foot of a child frolicking in the surf. I must have been Florence Night ingale in a previous life. Im kidding, of course. I was a y. When people joke about reincarnation, they were always someone famous (or infamous). Everyone was Betsy Ross or Hannibal. No one was ever King Tuts embalmer or just girl #3 sweeping oor. If there is anything to this business of reincarnation and dim remem brances of past lives, Im pretty sure I can follow my ascent to the top of the food chain. My innate fear of spiders points to my afore mentioned life as a y, cut short to sustain a hungry arachnid. I can commiserate with the rabbits in our care at PRWC as they inch and jump at every loud sound. My own intolerance for loud noises leads me to believe I spent time as one of natures French fries a prey species that every other species likes to eat. My poor eyesight was probably my undoing as a bird of prey. I must not have spent any time as an elephant, or surely my memory would be much sharper than it is. As a human, I try to be mindful of all other life forms with which we share this planet. We are so fortunate here in Southwest Florida to share our home with many dierent species. From alligators to tarpon, eagles to raccoons, gopher tortoises to the plants lining the dunes of the beach, we must respect and protect them all. They all serve a purpose and we have encroached on their territory, so try to be a good neighbor.

Page 10 September 18, 2014 Its amazing the dierence a scant 140 miles can make. Like Charlotte Harbor, Crystal River is located on Floridas Gulf coast, but the shing and the boating there is remarkably dierent from that found here in Southwest Florida. This quickly became apparent last Friday as the Ranger bay boat on which I was a guest picked a slow and careful course down the river towards the Gulf. At the helm was Capt. Shawn Walker, a second-generation shing guide who has spent decades learning the secrets of these challenging waters. Capt. Walkers job on that morning was twofold: To show o Crystal River and to help us catch trout and redsh. We had departed at rst light from a location near the headwaters of Crystal River. Within minutes of leaving the dock, we skirted the edge of a submerged spine of jagged rocks just a few inches beneath the surface a danger Charlotte Harbors boaters seldom encounter. Fortunately, those particular rocks were guarded by marker poles which were placed to alert boaters. Unfortunately, hardly any of the other rocks in that region are so clearly marked. Like Charlotte Harbor, the waters in the estuary up there are very shallow, but unlike Charlotte Harbor, when your motor touches bottom, its probably going to be dramatic and expensive. Even when the bottom is carpeted with sea grass, limestone rock is usually found just below it. Lower units suer, but towboat companies and outboard repair shops make out pretty good. Another dierence between Charlotte Harbor and Crystal River is that there is much more tidal change in Crystal River. On the day of our adventure, there was a tidal swing of nearly 4 feet, about double the range found in Charlotte Harbor. Our shing day began with very high, but very rapidly falling water perfect conditions for chasing redsh in the confusing maze of watercourses among the outermost islands near the mouth of the river. Our redsh strategy was simple and not much dierent from a tried-and-true Charlotte Harbor tactic: Get on the trolling motor and fan cast with spoons among the islands.

Page 11 September 18, 2014 IF YOU GO:There are several boat ramps in and around Crystal River, oering easy access to this famous shery for do-it-your selfers. There are numerous slow speed zones in the river, so pay attention to the signs. It cannot be emphasized enough that the boating there is tricky, so slow down whenever youre not absolutely sure of where youre going. Is it really that bad? Consider this: On our day, 10 shing guides departed from our marina and two of them damaged their lower units. Thats a 20 percent attrition rate in one day among professional guides! If you dont want to risk your own equipment, there are a number of guides in the area. We found Capt. Walker to be both professional and knowledgeable, and he worked hard for us. You can book him or other guides through the Plantation on Crystal River; call 800-632-6262. That may look like a pinsh, but its not. Angler Mike Hakala is hoisting a Cyrstal River redsh which struck an incredibly realistic pinsh pattern spoon produced by Aqua Dream Spoons. A common sight in Crystal River: A folded skeg and bent prop shaft on an outboards lower unit. oyster bars we encountered looked much like the redsh habitat in Charlotte Harbor, but they were mixed in with rock ledges which have no equivalent here. The redsh up there do eat spoons in much the same way as their Charlotte Harbor cousins, as we discovered when our oerings were gobbled by slot-sized sh which hit in water so shallow that we could could sometimes watch their wakes as they charged to engulf our hardware. With our redsh mission accomplished, Capt. Walkers plan was to head oshore to target trout as the tide fell out. Unlike Southwest Florida, much of the trout shing in the Crystal River region is done miles out in the Gulf. The Gulfs waters are much shallower up there, so shallow that an angler 10 miles oshore might be shing in only 10 feet of water. Lush sea grass beds extend many miles out to sea. Perfect habitat for trout may be so far oshore that you cant see land. We ran 3 or 4 miles oshore to about 4 feet of water and made long drifts while throwing softbodied jigs and shrimp imitations. There are miles and miles of potentially trout-producing ats up there. As in Charlotte Harbor, while much of it looks the same, there are areas which produce sh and areas which do not. Since there is so much potential habitat, the learning curve can be lengthy for a newcomer, but there are plenty of sh around and perseverance will pay o. On our day the best color was hot pink, which was munched by spotted seatrout, silver trout, bluesh, ladysh and by some huge lizardsh. The ats were teeming with life we saw schools of ipping bait which seemed to stretch endlessly out of sight, and as we shed the surface was regularly blasted by feeding sh. Interestingly, there are rocky outcrops scattered on the oshore trout ats, and we lost a few lures to hangups with the craggy limestone. Lets go shing!Capt. Ralph Allen runs the King Fisher Fleet of sightseeing and shing charter boats located at Fishermens Village Marina in Punta Gorda. He is an award-winning outdoor writer and photogra pher and is a past president of the Florida Outdoor Writers Association. Call him at 941-639-2628 or email Captain@KingFisherFleet.com. Florida lies in the subtropical climate zone. That means we have a mix of species that are usually found in either cooler or warmer climates. Snook are at the northern edge of their range here. Any further north and the number killed by winter chill becomes too much for them to sustain a population. Tarpon also prefer to live in tropical areas. On the other end of the scale, trout are a good example of a fish that prefers cooler water. Our winter temperatures dont bother these fish at all, but the summer heat drives them to deeper water, which is always just a bit cooler. If you know what a particular fish prefers, you can more easily target that fish at any given time. Water temperature is the obvious thing you can look for, but once you find water the right temperature you can also figure out how to get your target to bite. A summer trout is too hot for comfort. Do you want to go run sprints when its hot out? Neither does the trout. A bait worked slowly is the ticket the fish still has to eat, but its looking for a meal with minimal exertion. A warm-water fish, on the other hand, is raring to go. Snook and tarpon, among other species, do their most aggressive feeding in summer. In many cases, theyll also be looking for larger prey as their body temperature goes up, their metabolism rises and they require more fuel. Of course, there are many fish that will fall between these two extremes. Redfish feed actively most of the time, though theyll slow down on the coldest and hottest days. Knowing your quarry is one of the surest ways of improving your fishing success. Although most anglers have read a bit about their favorite species, theres always more to know. One great place to glean information is in scientific studies, which you can find online. Yes, you have to sort through a lot of mud to get to the gold nuggets but anything thats too easy is hardly worth doing anyway, right?

Page 12 September 18, 2014 SIZE LIMIT: n/a DAILY BAG LIMIT: 100 lb per harvester AVERAGE SIZE: Less than a quarter-pound STATE RECORD: n/a; may reach 2 lb HABITAT: Young fish frequent grassflats in 2 to 5 feet of water. Adults generally found on nearshore reefs, though they can also be caught on deeper grass beds. Also common around bridge and pier pilings. LEGAL GEAR: Hook and line, spears, gigs, seine or castnet. FOOD VALUE: As with other grunts, excellent if a bit on the small side. FISHING METHODS: Pigfish feed mainly on crustaceans, so shrimp and small crabs are the best baits. Squid is a good choice because of its durability. Pigfish dont like eating fish. A small jig, especially one tipped with shrimp, will also work. NOTES: A favored bait for big seatrout on Floridas East Coast (they make a grunting noise that is believed to draw trout from long distances). In Southwest Florida, pigfish are more often used as grouper bait. FISH PROFILE PIGFISH This week we are going to take a look at a revolver that has made many changes since the companys inception. Those of you who have been dabbling in rearms over the years will know the name and the location of New Englands Gun Valley and more importantly, Charter Arms. In 1964, an experienced gun designer by the name of Douglas McClennahan decided that after working for other gun manufacturers, he could design and build a gun just as reliable for less money and that is exactly what he accomplished. McClennahan designed a new .38 Special revolver that weighed just 16 ounces. His revo lutionary lightweight handgun was an instant hit with some and not so much with others. Nevertheless, he knew hwas denitely onto something good, because shortly thereafter the other manufacturers followed suit. In 1967, McClennahan brought in David Ecker and Charter Arms became a partner ship. They set out to do one thing and one thing only: Build a high-quality revolver at a reasonable cost with American workers in their Stratford, Conn., facility. For more than a generation, thats exactly what they did. In the 1990s Charter led bankruptcy and restruc tured themselves under the Ecker family. Today, Charter boasts their guns are still 100 percent American made using 100 percent American parts. When I rst got into the gun business, I was wowed by the many dierent gun makers but took notice especially of one. As I was standing at my rst dealer show in Destin trying to decide what I was going to stock my store with for my customers, I looked at all the usual guys in the game Ruger, Smith & Wesson, Taurus, Colt, Kimber, etc. you name it, they were all there, and they all wanted my money. The representative for Charter Arms caught my attention with several key features that he emphasized about their guns. The rst was a no-questions-asked warranty on workmanship and functionality for life, provided the shooter is not negligent in his operation. I thought that sounded pretty good. The next thing he told me was how the revolver was designed dierently than others. He talked about the single-piece frame that did not require sideplates and screws, making it inherently stronger. He then talked about how they had fewer critical moving parts, which made it more reliable. Thats also very good. Its similar in ideology to a Glock design simple, with fewer parts to go wrong. The rep told me about other design features, such as the three-point cylinder lockup as opposed to two-point lockup the other companies were making. That ultimately makes the gun stronger and safer also. That is certainly a nice upgrade; after all, they design everything from a .22 LR all the way up to a .44 Special. Well, then he said something that really got my attention: We are 100 percent American-made and -owned. I said something like, Thats nice. He looked me directly in the eye and said, Ryan, I want you to understand: All of our materials we purchase for our guns, from start to nish, is 100 percent all Amer ican. Every single one of them. No exceptions. Well, after hearing about the warranty, after hearing about the history of the company, after hearing about the gun and its strong points, and especially after hearing about the fact that this really truly is an Amer ican-made gun from start to nish, I decided I would give them a try. At this point in the conversation, I told him I was going to try a few dierent models and see how they did. As I was sitting down to place the order, the sales representative said, Ryan, I would love to send you some free materials and some dealer support materials. Obviously I said yes; after all, I was stocking up a new store. As I continued to handle the dierent models and colors (thats right colors), I asked the rep how long hed been with the company. He said, Oh quite a while. He handed me his card and I read it. It said Nick Ecker CEO/Owner. My decision at that point was clearly made up. Charter Arms was denitely going in my store. On the back of the card, he wrote down his personal contact info should I have any questions. I left the show and a few days later a package arrived just as he said with everything he oered. I decided to call him and order 25 more revolvers bringing my total to about 35. Nick Ecker treated me great, which is really no shock because Charter Arms treats its customers like gold. Their warranty is among the best in the industry, and the pride of their workmanship shows in every gun they produce. The fact they are probably the only truly American-made gun these days is also quite impressive. Happy shooting!Ryan Ingle has owned and operated Higher Power Outtters in Punta Gorda since 2011.

Page 13 September 18, 2014 Photo providedPepper grass, also known as Illinois pondweed, is a native aquatic vegetation that makes excellent bass habitat.I can remember a time when Florida lakes (the ones I shed, anyway) were lled with pepper grass. This was my favorite oshore vegetation to sh years ago. If you could nd this type of cover growing in 4 feet or more of water, you were bound to catch bass. After a long period of scarcity, pepper grass, also known as Illinois pondweed, is nally reemerging in some lakes. I have a tournament this weekend on Lake Reedy, just o U.S. 27 south of Lake Wales. This lake used to have some of the best shable pepper grass you have ever seen. There were clumps scattered around the lake in dierent depths of water. If you could nd the pepper grass that held bass, you would catch all the sh you wanted in a day. Bass were abundant in these areas, and the quality of the sh was just fantastic. I remember going to a tournament out there many years ago in my jon boat. I had the 9.9 Suzuki motor on the back and a large cooler for a livewell. It was a pretty sweet rig, if I do say so myself. Anyhow, my partner and I went around the point to an area where I had caught a few sh in practice, though none were big. The morning of the tourna ment we came into this area and started throwing Slug-Gos over the pepper grass. We were catching 4-pound bass one after another, like it was nothing. Back then, we shed with an eight-sh limit (dont ask me why because I dont know the answer). Half the bass we weighed in were better than 4 pounds. That was truly a special day of shing. Now Im heading back to that same lake this coming weekend, hoping to duplicate what I did more than 20 years ago. I believe I can do it, although now we get to weigh in only ve bass. The pepper grass has returned, and it has grown in areas that held bass oh so many years ago. The best part is that we now have better baits then we did back then. Fishing weedless topwater baits over pepper grass can be pure excitement and adrenaline. The Slug-Gos have been replaced by ukes, frogs and realistic swim baits, any of which does a better job attracting bass. This is the one lake where I can literally sh a soft plastic topwater bait all day. If things dont work out in the pepper grass, I always have the pads to go back to. The boat docks oer a great place to hook sh as well. But to catch consistent bog bass, nothing has produced like the pepper grass. One of the tricks to fishing pepper grass is to be thorough. Cover that area from every angle imaginable. If you can, keep your distance and work your bait off the edges as much as possible, especially early in the day when the bass may be feeding before it gets too bright out. As the sun starts to get up, they will withdraw to a deeper part of the grass. That doesnt mean you cant catch them it simply means they become a little more reserved in their habits. Just make sure that the holes you see in the pepper grass get a bait thrown over them from multiple angles. Sometimes the bait is needs to travel in a different direction to provoke a strike. Once the sun starts to climb, you can take a new approach to shing pepper grass. Find the lightest bait that will descend through the pepper grass and start ipping it. Pepper grass is thinner than hydrilla. Your bait should fall a little easier through this type of cover without having to punch the bait through it. A craw on a very light weight has always worked the best for me. More often than not, you will get bites as the bait is falling through the pepper grass. Bass will sit at the openings they nd in this cover, which means they wont always be at the bottom. A light weight produces a slow fall, allowing your bait to stay in the strike zone as long as possible. Not every patch of pepper grass holds sh. Its tough to say whether the bass will be around any given clump of pepper grass, but I would put my money on catching at least one quality sh out of it throughout the day. Patches that are clumped up and oer heavy shade are the most likely to be productive. Try it out and work some baits over the surface, especially early in the day. With just a dash of luck, you should see some really good-looking bass before the morning is over.Greg Bartz is a tournament bass sherman based in Lakeland.

Stern drive or inboard powered boats have closed engine compartments where volatile gasoline vapors dont easily dissipate, and older gasoline powered boats are the riskiest to refuel as their brittle fuel hoses can crack, leaving gas in the bilge after a ll-up. Boat Owners Association of the United States has these 10 tips to ensure a non-eventful refueling: DISEMBARK: As soon as youre safely tied up to the fuel dock, everyone should hop o the boat. TURN OFF EVERYTHING: Shut down all engines, electric motors and galley stoves and turn o the battery at the main switch. BUTTON HER UP: Close all compart ments, cabin doors, ports, windows and hatches. DONT SMOKE: Ensure all smoking materials are fully extinguished and dont leave a stogie smoldering up on the bridge. NO STATIC: Keep the fuel nozzle in contact with the fuel deck ll to prevent static sparks (and dont confuse the fuel ll with a rod holder, water tank or holding tank ll, which happens more often than you think). Stay with your boat, and dont use the handsfree clip. Portable tanks should be removed and placed on the fuel dock before lling. DONT OVERFILL: To prevent fuel from spewing from the fuel tank vent, dont ll the tank to the very top. Try to know how much fuel you need, and keep an absorbent pad handy. A tank that is overlled can allow fuel to blowback or expand and be forced out of the tank vent as temperatures rise or seas kick up. CLEAN UP: Replace the tank cap, open all hatches and doors, wipe up any spills and dispose of any fuel soaked absorbents properly. Hanging them on a rail to allow the gasoline to evaporate may seem like a good idea until a guest decides to smoke. USE THE BLOWER: Operate the bilge blower (if equipped) for at least four minutes. SNIFF TEST: Smell the bilge and engine compartment before starting the engine. Note that a bilge blower wont remove vapors from spilled gasoline, so use your nose rst before you turn the key. INVESTIGATE ANY ISSUES: If the engine wont start right up after refueling, stop cranking and investigate. In most cases of refueling-related accidents, the operator tried multiple times to start the engine before an explosion occurred. To learn more about fueling boats visit BoatUS.org/fueling-tips. Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS.com) is the nations leading advocate for recreational boaters providing its over half-mil lion members with government representation, services such as 24-hour dispatch, on water boat towing as well as roadside assistance for boat trailers and tow vehicles, feature-packed boat insurance programs, money-saving benets including marina and service discounts, and vital information that improves recreational boating.

Our spineless leaders have decided that, given a choice, it is better to die at the hands of terrorists than make them feel bad. But I am not encumbered by this faulty denition of civil rights. I am free to point out weird appearance and behavior even within my own rag-tag conglomerate of Gulf Coast line-danglers. Here are seven proven ways almost anyone can use to identify a Florida sherman:NASTY KNUCKLE CUTAlongside the top joint on the index nger of Florida anglers you will see an ugly skin furrow. It has been plowed out by that wonder of science, braided line. This wound comes from trying to tie knots too tight, or hauling a heavy sh onboard without a glove. The slice never really disappears, oozes occasionally, and even bleeds for special sh. No other sportsmen have this type of marking on their nger, unless you include professional yo-yo spinners.ONLY MONSTERS COUNTThis is mostly an inshore behavior pattern. You see an angler and his son returning to the dock. As he unloads his boat, the cooler door ips open to reveal one barely legal trout. You say You got one, huh? He says, Yeah, I dont normally keep ones that size, but my son caught it and wanted to show it to The kid interrupts, Dad, you caught that Dad glares at him and says, Shut up, Hayden. As I was saying, I normally dont keep little trout like this. Yesterday, though, I had a 29-incher. JUNK BOX TREASURESAll Florida shermen have a container lled with tangled rigs, corroded reels, bent hooks, never-used products, old wedding rings and general crap that wouldnt be allowed in his house. It might be in the shed, in the garage, or in the back of the car, truck or boat. When he needs to sneak away from household duties, the angler nds a quiet spot to sort through the junk. Sometimes he actually nds a few re-usable items (not the wedding rings) and feels good about being so organized. But the pile never gets any smaller.RUSTY RUNAWAY PLIERSI gure Florida anglers comprise about half the market for pliers in the civilized world. Loss is a big issue. Without the proper lanyard, pliers have a tendency to slide o gunwales. But rust and corrosion are the real killers. Fishermen go through clamping tools like teenagers go through cellphone minutes. Some anglers pretend that they never replace this essential tool. Ive had these two-dollar needlenose pliers for 20 years. Sure you have. And I caught a tarpon in the water hazard on the 14th hole.SHINS OF STEELNo part of a shermans body takes more of a beating than his shins (well, probably, depending on his domestic situation). Bow rails, trailer hitches, shoreline rocks all present a clear and present danger to human legs. If you are an eligible bachelorette searching for a sherman to love, look for the guy with the gashes below his knees. Just one note of caution: If hes wearing long pants, ask permission before you pull up his pants leg. Even though he may not care (he will prob ably smile), cu-lifting is clearly a civil rights violation. LOVE OF VESSELSIm using my own reaction as guide for this proling attribute. In the weeks following Hurricane Charley, images of horrible destruc tion graced our TV screen almost every night. But, somehow, the sight of ruined homes and businesses all kind of blended together. On the other hand, when the media lmed those overhead shots of marina boats piled on top of each other, I almost cried. Oh God, look at that beautiful ats boat lying on the road! Yeah, the important things in life.NO LEFTOVERSFood storage appliances in a Florida sh ermans home are always half-empty, and its not connected to the cost of groceries. From the freezer, 10 years of collected llets are either tossed out by the spouse or pawned o to unsuspecting neighbors. Leftover casseroles from the weekly potluck dinner mysteriously disappear prior to shing trips. Even road-kill carcasses vanish on those mornings. All of these food-stus become part of a new genre. Florida shermen simply call them chum. If you are a Florida sherman, it may frighten you to learn how easy you are to spot in public. Dont worry, only highly trained journalists like myself employ the foregoing methods to nd anglers. Everybody else just says, Hey, whats that smell?

Page 17 September 18, 2014 WAHOO CAUGHT OFF CALIF.DANA POINT, Calif. A deep-sea sherman made an extremely rare catch 12 miles o the coast of Dana Point, Calif. Angler Eric Kim became the rst in California waters to catch a wahoo sh, the Balboa Angling Club announced on Facebook last week. Scientists believe it might be the rst wahoo ever caught o the United States Pacic Coast. The sh weighed in at 50.1 pounds and was 60 inches long. Wahoo are often known to frequent tropical and sub-tropical seas, from Cabo San Lucas and south to the equator, but are not common o the United States Pacic Coast. SAY WHAT?Eating more sh may reduce a womans risk for hearing loss, according to a large new study. Researchers at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston found that consuming at least two servings of sh and omega-3s each week could help prevent or delay hearing loss. Although a decline in hearing is often considered an inevitable aspect of aging, the identication of several potentially modiable risk factors has provided new insight into possibilities for prevention or delay of acquired hearing loss, the studys corresponding author, Dr. Sharon Curhan, of the hospitals Division of Network Medicine, said in a hospital news release. Women who ate two or more servings of sh weekly had a 20 percent lower risk for hearing loss than those who ate sh only rarely, the study showed. More specically, eating more omega-3s, which are commonly found in seafood, was linked to a lower risk for hearing loss. Consumption of any type of sh (tuna, dark sh, light sh, or shellsh) tended to be associated with lower risk. These ndings suggest that diet may be important in the prevention of acquired hearing loss, noted Curhan.GARBAGE MAY BE TO BLAME FOR FLORIDA WHALES DEATHJACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Garbage may be to blame for the death of a whale that beached itself in northeast Florida last week. A necropsy by Georgia Aquarium sta found multiple plastic bags and braided shing line in one of the whales stomach chambers. Matthew Denny, a eld coordinator for the aquariums eld station in St. Johns County, says while pathology results are pending, garbage appears to be a contributing factor to the whales death. The young Cuviers beaked whale died at a rescue facility after it was found Sept. 9. It was 13 feet long and weighed about 1,400 pounds. The whale may have ingested the plastic bags thinking that they were something edible. Denny says its common for stranded marine animals to have ingested or become tangled in debris.BOAT SALES IMPROVINGRiding the crest of an improving economy, boat sales are up in Central Florida and across the state, dealers and customers say. All of the scare of the economy is wearing o, said Manny Messegeur of Winter Park, who recently bought a second boat. People are realizing the United States is not doomed. According to the National Marine Manufacturers Association, Florida sales of powerboats, motors, trailers and accessories totaled nearly $1.96 billion, a 16 percent increase from 2012. The association said there could be as much as a 5 to 7 percent increase in new powerboat sales for 2014. Bryan Douglas, manager of MarineMax Orlando, said the debut of four new boats at last weekends Orlando Boat Show is just one indication of how the market is rallying back. I think people are willing to get back on the water, Douglas said. Without oering specic numbers, Douglas said the company has had a fantastic quarter and year-to-date. As of June, sales across the board have shown an increase compared with last year, the national association reported. Powerboats, ski boats, small shing boats and pontoon boat sales are up 8.7 percent, 16.7 percent, 12.1 percent and 9.6 percent, respectively.SHARKS INVADE OHIO?MANCHESTER, Ohio A morning spent shing for bait sh ended with the discovery of a bull shark in the Ohio River near Manchester. The dead sh was found at the Manchester boat launch, at Island Creek Campground Sept. 12. According to John Bays of Manchester, he intended to sh for hybrid bass which frequent the area. He found the shark, measured at 2 feet, 9 inches long, oating along the shoreline. It appeared to have been struck by a boat motor prop. There are a lot of baitsh called skipjack in the river. That is why the bass are here, and I guess that is why the shark may have been here, following the food, Bays said, also revealing a bass almost the size of the shark in the back of his truck. My guess is that it has been dead a day or so. Checking with a fellow sherman, and a quick internet research, revealed that a bull shark is the likely species, and that bull sharks have been known to survive in fresh or saltwater areas, he said. Bays said his friend, who works all along the river, told him there had been bull sharks as far north as St. Louis, Mo., documented in the 1930s.FISH EAT MAMMALS MORE THAN YOU MAY THINKAs a rule, with the exception of notorious pred ators like barracudas and sharks, we see sh as pretty low on the food chain. They swim around the sea or lake or stream nibbling on plants, insects or smaller sh. Trout, in particular, are generally seen as a threat only to favored insects and insect larvae. But it turns out that rainbow trout and other sh in Alaska sometimes add small mammals to their diet. A new study published in Ecology of Freshwater Fish looked at the stomach contents of rainbow trout and arctic grayling over the course of 13 years and found that the sh were regularly adding shrews to their diet, usually every two to three years when the shrew populations in Alaska are at their peak. Matt Milller, writing for the Nature Conservancy, explains: Shrews are insectivorous mammals that are known to have boom and bust cycles. The researchers speculate that in years of peak abundance, trout and grayling eat them in signicant numbers. Fish are good at selecting rich prey sources, says Lisi. Fly shers know this well. During a mayy hatch, if you dont have the right y, youre not going to catch anything, because trout are all focused on a very specic insect. Co-author of the study Peter Lisi told Miller that the research started o as a side project after the researchers found sh with shrews in their stomach and wanted to gure out how often it happened. BOAT RAGEPENSACOLA (AP) A Tennessee man is charged with attempted homicide after allegedly stabbing a friend during a shing trip in Floridas Panhandle. According to an Escambia County Sheris Oce arrest report, Adam Ferguson of Memphis, Tenn., injured his knee in a boat Wednesday in Pensacola Bay. Authorities say Ferguson became angry that the boat wasnt returning to shore quickly enough and stabbed the victim, who was piloting the vessel, multiple times with a pocket knife. The Pensacola News Journal reports that Fergusons father restrained him while other passengers on the boat agged down help. The Coast Guard escorted the vessel to land, where Ferguson and the victim were hospitalized. Fergusons father told authorities that his son is receiving treatment and medica tion for a bipolar condition. Ferguson was held on $250,500 bond.THE COMPULSIVE PAINTERA woman was complaining to a friend that her husband was always repainting their wood boat. The friend asked, How many times could he have painted the boat? Twice? Three times? The wife said, A lot more than that! When we bought it, it was a 19-foot speedboat. Now its a 21-foot cruiser!

Page 18 September 18, 2014 I really like September. The heat of summer starts to slip away, and water temperatures are dropping ever so slightly. This change may not be obvious to you and me, but the sh know it. As fall creeps in, some of the sh that have been tough to nd during the hot months are starting to reappear. Flounder are among the rst sh to show back up. Flatties are not often targeted by local anglers, probably because we have so many other target species. But they can be a lot of fun. With their broad, at sides, they can put up a pretty good ght. As table sh, theyre one of the best (though lleting can be tricky). We actually have two species of ounder here that are commonly caught. The smaller is the Gulf ounder, which prefers to live inshore. They grow to about 20 inches, though most are less than 15 inches. Gulf ounder have a distinctive pattern of three spots: One on the tail, one midbody above the lateral line, and one midbody below the lateral line. The spots are dark with a lighter ring around them. Southern ounder get bigger. Lots bigger. Most will be 2 to 4 pounds, though sh of 10 to 12 pounds are very possible. Southerns like salty water, so they are more prevalent in the passes and open waters of the Gulf. Theyre also spotted, usually with light creamy marks on a chocolate background, and with no identi able pattern. In general, ounder like to be near struc ture. They lie on their sides most of the time, so they also need open sand or mud. Some of the best ounder spots are bare bottom around rocks or reefs. The rocks dont need to be large; even a few square feet of exposed limestone bedrock or just some shell-strewn sand is often enough to hold ounder. When youre targeting these spots, dont sh directly on the structure. Fish the perimeter. Washboard bottom, caused by the action of currents, is a good sign that ounder may be present. Bycatch in such areas can be very exciting as well. Did you know gag grouper will often sit on the open sand near a reef? The shallow edge of a dropo will also draw them in, and that makes Boca Grande, Gaspar illa and Captiva passes ounder magnets. In these passes, theres a stronger current on the north end, which results in a dropo just a few feet from shore. The dropo is a natural ambush point, and the current brings baitsh, shrimp and other tasty morsels right to the ounders waiting mouths. The sh will sit on the edge of the dropo facing upward and into the current. Shore-bound anglers can sh the passes very eectively. If youre on foot, you can also walk the beaches at night or rst thing in the morning. When theres little structure available, such as along our Gulf shorelines, ounder will often hang out in the troughs that run parallel to the beach. As in the passes, theyll face into the current, so be sure your baits are moving with the current for a natural presentation. You dont need any specialized tackle to catch ounder. I prefer a rod with a softer tip, like a 6to 15-pound fast action stick. Thats because ounder have tender mouths, and its easy to pull the hook out if you put on too much pressure. By the way, a soft mouth doesnt mean a harmless mouth. Flounder have sharp teeth and lots of them. Theyre not like the winter ounder up north that can only gum you. Use a net or BogaGrip to land your ounder do not put your thumb in there! A lot of anglers seem to believe that ounder eat mostly shrimp. Actually, a oun ders diet is mostly sh. Theyre surprisingly adept predators and have no problem with hauling themselves o the sand to chase down a baitsh if the mood strikes. However, given the choice, they prefer to grab dinner without having to move too far. When you drag a bait across the sand, youre giving them the chance to do just that. Theyll pound live whitebait or mud minnows. If youd rather buy bait instead of catch it, live or frozen shrimp will do ne. So will a strip of squid. Pin your bait to a No. 1 or 1/0 Kahle or other wide-gap hook. You do need a bit of lead to keep your bait close to the bottom, especially when youre shing near the passes. Sometimes it takes three-quarters of a ounce or more. Its important to keep it far down, though, because ounder are often lazy. Flattie teeth arent good at cutting leader, but they can nick it. I use 12 to 18 inches of 25or 30-pound uorocarbon. If you like articial lures, a bucktail jig or curly-tailed soft plastic on a jighead is a great choice. You can leave the hook plain or tip it with a strip of natural bait. Suspending lures such as MirrOdines will also catch some sh. Be sure to give the lure time to sink and sh near the bottom. If youve shed for uke (summer ounder) up north, pretty much any technique that catches them will also catch Gulf and southern ounder. This is one of those cases where knowledge carries over very well, and it some times actually gives folks who havent lived here their whole lives an advantage over the local Crackers. Some of them wont like having the tables turned that way, but really, its not such a bad thing.Robert Lugiewicz is the manager of Fishin Franks Bait & Tackle, located at 4425-D Tamiami Trail in Charlotte Harbor.

Page 19 September 18, 2014 Photo providedArmadillos are cute, in an ugly sort of way.Armadillos arent very popular. Homeowners dislike them because they have a habit of digging small pits all over a lawn. Nighttime drivers arent fond of the way an armadillo will wander onto the highway, completely heedless of oncoming vehicles. Dogs despise them, just because. Also, armadillos can carry leprosy. Is it any wonder they have few friends? Yet armadillos are survivors. Despite sometimes concerted eort to shoot them into extinction, and the frequent sight of dead ones lying on the asphalt, these animals are still plentiful. Why is it that some creatures seem to do well in spite of no one caring about them, while some of the ones that have the most charisma and legions of fans are in danger of vanishing? One word: Adaptability. Raccoons, white-tailed deer, doves, possums, gray squirrels and armadillos (at least the nine-banded armadillo, which is the only species youll nd in the U.S.) are all species that have adapted well to the dramatic changes humans have made to their environment over the past 300 years. Agriculture has been very good for armadillos, which are mostly insect eaters. When they dig holes in your lawn, theyre digging up beetle larvae that would otherwise eat your grass from the roots. Many other things are also on the menu small reptiles, bird eggs, fungi, sometimes even carrion. Armadillos have weak, peglike teeth and cant do much damage by biting, but they can sure tear up an attacker with their powerful claws if the need arises. There are few predators that can get into the tough shell and make a meal of them. Florida panthers, black bears and coyotes can, but there just arent enough of these animals around to make a serious dent in armadillo populations, which have a high expansion rate. A female armadillo is mature after one year and will produce ospring annually. Unlike most other mammals, which have a highly variable litter size, armadillos almost always have four young at a time. The fertilized egg splits into four parts, each of which develops its own placenta. The baby dillos are identical quadruplets. This quirk of nature has made them candidates for scientic research when a number of identical animals are required. When theyre born, the young have shells that are soft and pliable, like leather. By the time theyre weaned at three months, their shells have gotten quite hard and bony. Theyll hang out with their mother for as long as a year, after which they leave to establish their own territories. Because armadillos dont like to share turf females especially the juveniles sometimes have to range far aeld to nd their own place. Thats one reason why armadillos have been spreading across the southeastern United States surprisingly quickly. According to Columbia Universitys Introduced Species Summary Project, until 1849 there were no armadillos north of the Rio Grande. Instead, they ranged from northern Mexico to northern Argentina. The animals began to expand into Texas and other parts of the desert Southwest following the decimation of predator populations there. Some researchers claim the animals that colonized Florida were escapees from zoos or circuses; others say natural range expansion brought them here. Even if they did hitch a ride to get here, theyd probably be in Florida by way of natural expansion by this time. Regardless of how it happened, its a fact that there are now armadillos from New Mexico to Nebraska to North Carolina. Future range expansion will be limited by cold armadillos are not hibernators but its expected that they could push as far north as New York. Its true that some armadillos carry leprosy. It hasnt been documented in Florida specimens, but as many as 10 percent of the animals in the western part of their range may be carriers. Armadillos are the only creatures besides humans that have been found to not only carry but also show signs of illness from leprosy, though they rarely live long enough to become debilitated by it. But leprosy is an Old World disease, and armadillos live only in the New World. How did they get leprosy in the rst place? From humans. So the 50 or so cases each year of armadillo-to-human leprosy transmission are really just a cases of givesies-backsies. My grandfather grew up in Florida in the Depression years. Back then, armadillos were sometimes called Hoover hogs, because the meat tastes a lot like pork and in honor of the muchhated president many felt was to blame for their poverty. Grandpa told me that armadillo roasted in its own shell isnt bad, but if you have to clean one you probably wont have much appetite afterwards. I just took his word for it. Whether you consider them native or not, armadillos have become one of the most recognizable of Floridas animal species, and one of those that youre most likely to see out and about. Next time you see one, tip your hat to the little man in armor and let him be on his way. Dig, dillo, dig FLORIDA FAUNA JOSH OLIVE ARMADILLO FACTS Armadillo is Spanish for little armored one, sometimes translated as little man in armor. The nine-banded armadillo is one of about 20 species of armadillos. The rest all live in Mexico and Central and South America. The smallest armadillo is the 6-inch fairy armadillo. The largest is the 100-pound giant armadillo. Armadillos are the last representatives of an ancient group of mammals that includes the extinct glyptodonts, some of which weighed thousands of pounds. Glyptodonts lived in Florida during the last ice age, and gyptodont fossils are fairly common finds locally.

Page 20 September 18, 2014 Page 20 September 18, 2014 Conservation amendment foes wary but preparedTALLAHASSEE Florida voters appear poised in November to pass a constitutional amendment that would require setting aside billions of dollars for land conservation and other environmental projects. The proposed Water and Land Conserva tion amendment would earmark 33 percent of the states documentary-stamp tax revenues fees paid when real estate is sold for 20 years. The money would go to buy conservation lands, protect areas vital to the water supply and restore natural systems that have been degraded, such as the Everglades. But some Republican and business leaders are raising concerns that Amendment 1 could make it harder to balance the state budget in the future. In a perfect world, you wouldnt want it in the constitution, said incoming Senate Presi dent Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando. As a legislator, you want as much exibility as you can, and it doesnt belong in the constitution. Other critics of the measure include House Speaker Will Weatherford, a Wesley Chapel Republican who has argued that legislating via constitutional amendments doesnt work, and Senate President Don Gaetz, a Niceville Republican who has said the amendment would shift too much land to state control. But supporters of Amendment 1 say it came about after state funding for land preservation dwindled during the last recession. The conservation community took the hit like everyone else when the economy turned south, said Allison DeFoor, chairman of Floridas Water and Land Legacy campaign, which backs the amendment. And then things just didnt get readjusted when the economy began to turn. The proposal appears likely to get the required 60 percent support from voters to pass. According to the Florida Chamber of Commerce which opposes the measure 78 percent of the states voters support the amendment. Little is known about it, but it has a power fully eective ballot title, in synch with Flori das pro-environment leanings, said University of South Florida political science professor Susan MacManus, who expects it to pass. Supporters point to the Florida Forever program, which uses bonds backed with revenue from documentary stamps and authorizes lawmakers to spend up to $300 million a year for land preservation. The last year Florida Forevers funding approached that mark was 2008. Supporters of Amendment 1 say it will generate about $10 billion over 20 years, while the state appears to project higher numbers. A state analysis estimates the total would be $648 million during the scal year starting in July 2015 and eventually grow to $1.268 billion by the 20th year. You would think that we could at least spend 1 percent of our state budget on water and land conservation, said Will Abberger, campaign manager for Floridas Water and Land Legacy. Thats what Amendment 1 represents: having that constitutional dedica tion so that no matter whos in public oce, we know that there is going to be funding. But others are wary. David Hart, executive vice president of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, said Amendment 1 would put state leaders in a bind during an economic crisis. Its hard enough for the Legislature to balance (competing) budgetary needs, but if $20 billion is set aside and untouchable, what else is going to get cut to make up for that? Hart asked. Are they going to have to cut education or senior health care? Those are some choices that are very real, should we get another recession. DeFoor said the amendment had been care fully crafted to budget for hard times. Its short in duration, its only 20 years, its reasonable in the amount (and) it puts us kind of back where we were, he said. Its xed by percentage, so if things get better, we all get better. And if things were, God forbid, to deteriorate, wed take the hit, too. Despite their qualms about Amendment 1, Republican legislative leaders say they respect voters support for it. If the amendment is passed, then were certainly going to scrupulously follow it and put those revenues toward those purposes, said Senate Appropriations Chairman Joe Negron, R-Stuart.

Page 21 September 18, 2014 Page 21 September 18, 2014 WaterLine photo by Josh OliveDo more docks really mean more dead manatees?An environmental group that frequently sues the government over endangered species issues has taken aim at the federal permitting of thousands of boat docks in Florida and how that aects manatees. The Florida oce of the Center for Biolog ical Diversity contends that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service arent keeping track of how many permits they approve for waterfront access throughout the state. While a single dock providing a tie-up for one boat might not have much eect on the manatee population, considered together, these projects are almost certainly increasing the risk of manatees being struck by water craft, the centers report says. The two agencies not only arent consid ering the cumulative impact of docks they are approving, but neither the corps nor the Fish and Wildlife Service appears to record how many watercraft access permits are issued in Florida, according to the Center for Biological Diversity, which has repeatedly sued federal agencies over endangered species issues since 1990. Will the environmental group be suing over this? The centers Jacki Lopez wouldnt say. Docks are a concern for manatee advocates because putting a new one into manatee habitat guarantees that at least one boat and maybe more will soon be rumbling by. In 2009, a record 97 manatees were killed by boats, but that number has declined in the past ve years to 73 last year. As of Sept. 5, the number killed by boats this year had reached 50. Biologists believe the decline in boat-related deaths happened in part because of the cost of boat fuel and new rules requiring boaters to slow down. The corps is the agency in charge of approving dock permits under an 1899 law governing obstructions to navigable water ways. Corps spokeswoman Nancy Sticht said the agency developed its current permitting process in collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Their goal is to avoid take of manatees, a term that means killing, injuring or even harassing the endangered marine mammals. We permit only those projects where take is not likely, Sticht said. If it is determined that a take may be likely, we recommend the applicant modify the project. Boat dock permits have raised hackles for many years. In 2000, when a coalition of environmental groups led by the Save the Manatee Club sued state and federal agencies for failing to protect manatees, as required by law, the docks issue proved the most contentious. In settling the lawsuit in 2001, federal o cials promised to come up with a way to deal with the cumulative eect of approving new docks, but they failed to produce one. Mean while, a public hearing on proposals to tighten the dock approval process drew 3,000 people angry with the Fish and Wildlife Service, which ultimately dropped the whole thing. The centers 10-page report detailing problems with the dock permits comes as the federal wildlife agency is considering whether to knock manatees down a notch on the endangered species list. Manatees have been classied as endangered since 1967, but a libertarian group equally well known for its lawsuits, the Pacic Legal Foundation, contends that they should now be reclassied as threatened. Last year, a record 829 manatees died, hundreds of them from a red tide bloom or a mysterious ailment in the Indian River Lagoon that may be tied to pollution. Thats more than 15 percent of the estimated population.

Page 22 September 18, 2014 Page 22 September 18, 2014 Study: Gulf oil spill cost recreational fishermen $585MRecreational anglers who normally sh in the Gulf lost up to $585 million from lost shing opportunities in the year of the Deep water Horizon oil spill and could be entitled to compensation, according to a new University of Florida study. After a disaster such as an oil spill, trustees which could include federal, state or tribal authorities often attempt to secure nan cial compensation from those responsible. In the Gulf oil spill, those monies would not go back to individual shermen, but instead might fund ecosystem improvements or to stock more sh in the Gulf on the shermens behalf, said UF food and resource economics professor Sherry Larkin. In December 2012, BP agreed to pay $2.3 billion to commercial shermen, seafood boat captains and crew, seafood vessel owners and oyster leaseholders, but trustees have yet to seek compensation on behalf of recreational shermen. These are sizable losses borne by recre ational users of publicly owned resources, said Larkin, an Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences faculty member. Because the oil spill aected thousands of square miles of sheries, trustees could try to compensate for everyone who uses the Gulf in the future, Larkin said. The study covers shing areas o the coasts of Louisiana to Florida and up to North Carolina. Researchers studied three types of anglers: those who shed from shore, those who piloted private or rental boats oshore and those who paid for guide boats to take them shing. They assigned an economic value for each of the three types of trips. The researchers found that anglers shing from shore and those who hire shing guides lost the most, an average of $29.65 and $34.27 per trip, perhaps because they are less able to change their shing conditions as compared to those who pilot their own boats, who lost the least at $2.23 per trip. The study also found that private and rental boat users were aected dierently, some substantially but others not much. Larkin and her colleagues took data collected from interviews with saltwater anglers by NOAAs Marine Recreational Information Program, which regularly surveys anglers on their catch. Each year approximately 40 million trips are taken in the U.S. Southeast. The UF researchers used about 70,000 shing trips each year for ve years, 2006 to 2010, to learn how each type of anglers changed their shing trips to avoid closures in federal sheries following the oil spill. They arrived at the $585 million gure by multiplying the per-trip losses for each type of trip by the number of aected shing trips, which was assumed to be for the year as if anglers could re-plan their trips to avoid closures, Larkin said. The UF study, the rst research study to estimate recreational shing losses following such a large oil spill, appeared online in July in the Journal of Environmental Management.

Page 23 September 18, 2014 Page 23 September 18, 2014 Suppressors may become a common sight in the woodsHunting game in Florida could become a little less noisy by the end of the year. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on Wednesday advanced a proposal that would remove a prohibition on the use of noise suppressors, or silencers, with ries and pistols when hunting deer, gray squirrels, rabbits, wild turkeys, quail and crows. The proposal will now be advertised in the Florida Administrative Register, and the commission is expected to vote on the new rule in November. While critics said muzzling rie shots could increase the risk of people being struck by wayward bullets or cause people to wander unaware into hunting areas, backers of the proposal said such concerns are unfounded. Commissioner Brian Yablonski noted that suppressors take out some of the big bang and recoil, but they dont silence weapons as depicted in the movies. It still makes a very loud sound and this was in all cases, Yablonski said during a commission meeting in Kissimmee. Were talking louder than a rock concert, louder than a jackhammer with the suppressor. Commission sta, hunters and a representa tive from the suppressor industry defended the proposal as a means to protect hunters hearing, lessen the impact of hunting on others and even help while introducing people to the sport. Knox Williams, president of the American Suppressor Association, estimated that 40,000 suppressors are already owned in Florida. Florida currently allows the use of suppressors on shotguns for game hunting. A suppressor can also be placed on a rie or pistol when hunting on private lands for non-game wildlife, which includes hogs, bears and armadillos. Buck Holly, an owner of C&H Precision Weapons in LaBelle, projected that by lifting the ban, sales of suppressors at his Hendry County business would grow from about two to ve a month to up to 10 a month. He said that would allow him to add one or two jobs. I know in most counties one to two jobs isnt a big blip on the radar, but in Hendry and Glades counties, one or two is a tremendous economic boost, Holly said. Patricia Brigham, chair of the League of Women Voters Gun Safety Committee, cautioned that a proliferation of silencers would reduce public safety. Theyre going to be used in such a way that theyre not intended to be used, which is to harm other human beings, Brigham warned. There are more important things than protecting the hearing of a hunter, than encouraging a young person to hunt the more important thing is the errant bullet catching the sleeve of a nearby hiker, pene trating the skin of a nearby hiker, penetrating the heart of a nearby hiker. Katherine McGill, a founding member of the National Urban Wildlife Coalition, said more time should be given to the review. I have no problem with suppressors person ally. If someone is target shooting near my property Id be glad that they are using them. Id like them to be put on reworks, too, McGill said. But I dont want to be riding my horse in the woods and not hear that hunter out there. Suppressors are allowed in 32 states for all hunting. Division of Hunting and Game Manage ment Director Diane Eggeman said lifting the prohibition isnt expected to lead to a wide spread proliferation of the use of suppres sors. She estimated a rie suppressor costs between $750 and $2,000, while individuals also have to pay $200 for a federal criminal background check. Holly placed the cost for most suppressors between $450 and $1,000.

Its very likely that were going to have to entertain a possible complete closure of the Apalachicola oyster harvest, Wiley told members of the commission during their Sept. 10 meeting in Kissimmee. We want to take that very carefully, and only do that if everybody feels thats what we have to do. In August, the state agency implemented new conservation measures for the winter, from closing certain commercial and recreational areas to lowering the number of oysters individ uals can harvest. The restrictions are intended to help the oyster population, which has been impacted by a reduction in water coming out of Georgia and by over-harvesting. Since 1990, control of water in the river system shared by Florida, Georgia and Alabama has been the subject of lengthy litigation. Recent rulings have favored Georgia. Last fall, Gov. Rick Scott announced a new lawsuit against Georgia in the U.S. Supreme Court, which has asked the U.S. Department of Justice for advice on whether to accept the case; that decision is pending. Wiley said there may not be a bright recovery until the water ow issue is resolved. The region has been listed as a declared shery resource disaster by the federal government since August 2013. Wiley said the conditions have only gotten worse, which is what necessi tated the new winter harvest rules. The News Service of Florida Photo providedThe FWC has warned that it may be necessary to shut down Apalachicola oysters.

Page 26 September 18, 2014 Page 26 September 18, 2014 Tougher rules set for sharks, mantasWe all know about the scary Jaws theme, Shark Week and stories about encounters where sharks take huge bites o surfboards enough to cause people to worry about the fearsome predator. But sharks could have their own theme, and when it plays, they should be on the look out for humans. Sharks kill about ve people a year, far fewer than deer, ants and dogs. But humans kill nearly 1 million tons of sharks every year, and thats just ve dierent types oceanic whitetip, scalloped hammerhead, great hammerhead, smooth hammerhead and porbeagle. Noting this imbalance, the Conven tion on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wildlife Fauna and Flora, known as CITES, announced more aggressive steps to protect them Friday. Starting Sunday, most of the 180 nations that are members of CITES will require sh ermen to get permits to hunt these sharks for their ns and meat and bring them ashore. The same goes for manta rays, which the body also moved to protect. CITES called the regulations the most comprehensive in its 40-year history to protect sharks and rays. If shermen dock with specimens of the ve shark species and all manta ray species, including their meat, gills and ns, they will need to have permits and certicates conrming that they have been harvested sustainably and legally, CITES said in a state ment. Scalloped hammerhead sharks in particular are zealously hunted for their ns and meat. The most recent stock assessment in 2009, according to the National Oceanic and Atmo spheric Administration, found that its popula tion across the world fell from 155,000 in 1981 to about 26,000 in 2005, an alarming decline that landed it on the endangered species list, the rst shark species ever placed on it. Manta ray gills are a delicacy in some nations, so shermen are known to spear them, hook them and cut away their gills before tossing the carcasses back into the ocean. Thats problematic because the rays reproduce very slowly, birthing fewer than one pup per year. By and large, they no longer swim in great schools, but in scattered popula tions across the world. Regulating international trade in these shark and manta ray species is critical to their survival, CITES Secretary-General John Scanlon said. By protecting the sh, governments are also protecting the biodiversity of our oceans. The Washington Post Photo providedManta ray gills are believed by some to cure cancer and chick enpox, and boost the immune system. In parts of China, they sell for more than $100 a pound.

Page 28 September 18, 2014 Here I go again, listening to Ch. 16 on the VHF marine radio and hearing the various conversations of people on the water. One recent distress call caught my attention. The call started as a frantic broadcast to the U.S. Coast Guard. When the Coast Guard watch stander answered, the woman stated that her husband was in the water and she could not see him. Next, the Coast Guard watchstander requested information about where the person in the water was. Then followed an almost endless series of replies which failed to relay the information the Coast Guard needed to initiate a response: What was their location? The caller trying to get help kept repeating her husband was in the water and they were in a locally well-known anchorage at a state park. The watchstander was not familiar with the anchorage and asked for a GPS position. Believe me when I say this conversation went on for a while without a GPS position being relayed. It nally came out that the husband had jumped in the water to retrieve his dinghy and was now standing on the dock with the dinghy tied up. Once the caller had determined her husband was safe, she no longer wanted to talk to the Coast Guard, which left a few more unanswered questions until a marine police unit conrmed the man was safely on shore. Calling the Coast Guard or a commercial towing service should not become an exercise in 20 questions. Although we may ask that many questions, the critical information that needs to be relayed is who you are and a description of the boat in addition to your exact position, nature of your distress and how many persons you have on board. I am sure all of us who are in the radio watch business have had a caller looking for assistance who could not tell the watch stander where they were. One of my pet peeves is asking a question and not getting an answer. In other words, answer the question! Frequently at work I ask someone for their GPS position. Many times the answer comes back I dont have a GPS, or, I dont know how to use it. OK, ne but please be prepared to describe the location so the watchstander can relay that information to rescue assets on the water. If we dont know where you are, how can we possibly get you the help you need? My favorite call to date is from a woman whose boyfriend called her because his cell phone battery was almost exhausted. He gave her minimal information it was raining, they were on an island, out of fuel and he had to get home or he would be late for work. The woman could not even describe her boyfriends boat, but she knew it had a motor. OK, where do we start looking? In these examples, a little bit of good infor mation would have gone a long way to helping the authorities nd a boater in distress. Being able to describe your exact or nearly exact position really helps. Having a chart on board and knowing how to read is very useful. It also helps if you have and know how to use a GPS. My wife and I got ourselves each a new smartphone. Interestingly enough, among all the apps the phone comes with is a compass that also displays latitude and longitude. If you have a smartphone, look to see if you have that app in there somewhere. If not, download one that gets you the information you need to get help. It cant hurt if you need to know. And of course having an electronic posi tion-indicating radio beacon (EPIRB) on board all vessels is highly recommended to expedite the rescue process in distress cases. An EPIRB, if properly registered, will notify the Coast Guard who and exactly where you are.
