Who wouldnt want free TV or a free U.S. state silver bar? Two recent full-page ads running in the Sun promised both. But some readers questioned their truthfulness. Stephanie Masula took issue with the ad for Clear-Cast micro TV antennas. They are claiming you can use a device and don't have to have cable, satellite or Internet connection and no monthly bills, the South Gulf Cove resident wrote me. Is this legitimate? Sounds too good to be true. If you read this ad very carefully, you'll see that this $88 plug-in antenna receives only local, over-the-air broadcast channels like NBC2, WINK, ABC7 and FOX4 in our area. This is nothing new. Free local TV signals have always been available with a personal antenna, so the claim of free TV is accurate. The reason you get a monthly bill is that cable and satellite companies pay stations to retransmit them, and "bundle" them with cable networks like USA, TNT and ESPN. However, the ad probably doesn't violate the Federal Trade Commissions truth-in-advertising rules banning deceptive advertising. The FTC explains it will nd deception if there is a representation, omission or practice that is likely to mislead the consumer acting reasonably in the circumstances, to the consumer's detriment. These practices include misleading price claims or bait and switch techniques. Besides being truthful and non-deceptive, advertisers also must have evidence to back up express and implied claims. Knowing all this, lets examine the ad for the free silver bars. Gail Omera is annoyed and upset with the ad from the World Reserve Monetary Exchange. People dont read the whole thing, said the North Port resident. They see free and get into it. This one by the same Ohio company selling the TV antennas advertised U.S. State silver bars each weighing a full Troy ounce of solid .999 pure ne silver sealed away in heavy vault bricks are being handed over free for the next three days to every Florida resident. Again, reading this ad very carefully reveals that nothing is handed over. Rather, you get one free bar only by purchasing ve in a six-pack brick that weighs over 187 total grams. The ve bars cost $57 each, or $285, plus postage and handling. This company can sell and package its silver bars at any price it wants, even if similar silver bars sell for less elsewhere. Whether the promised weight of 187 grams that converts to less than a half pound is heavy is subjective, but its not misleading. Understand, advertisings goal is to get you to buy something. However, the Better Business Bureau urges consumers not to feel rushed to act due to deadlines, and to read advertisements in their entirety. Contact the company with questions. Verify if there are any additional costs, including processing or shipping, as well as the companys refund policy. For example, if you want to return those silver bars, they must be back at the company within 10 days after receipt, and you pay for return shipping plus a 20 percent restocking fee. Finally, compare pricing of similar products and always pay by credit card to preserve your disputing rights.David Morris is the Suns consumer advocate and a Florida Society of News Editors award-winning columnist.

Yes, Charlotte beat Venice Paul DeGaeta and Dale Russell know this for sure. The memories, however, are still there in vivid color. So vivid in fact, that the two for mer Tarpon linemen can bring up near-identical memories of the same play: DeGaeta was supposed to block a Venice linebacker named Pat Avano. But Tarpon legend Burton Lawless had other ideas. I see this ash and its Burton Lawless, DeGaeta said. Lawless hits him, lays him out and stands over him and says, Take that, little man. Russell laughed about the play. We thought, OK, this is real war, he said. Mike Lay Sr., who had stints as the head coach at Charlotte and Venice, recalled one game when Tarpons quarterback Boo Boo Weaver was dropped Biggest game in townBy ROB SHORESPORTS WRITERCharlotte, Venice make it No. 82 today in intense rivalryRIVALRY | 6 Fishy reunion PHOTO PROVIDED BY TANIABEGG.COMHarry the Nassau Grouper was stolen from Punta Gordas Sea Grape Gallery in March 2012. The $5,800, 3.5-pound beaded sculpture mysteriously was returned to its owner, Tania Begg, Tuesday in an unmarked package shipped to the gallery from Kansas.PUNTA GORDA Two and a half years ago, artist Tania Begg felt like a sh out of water after someone stole one of her cherished beaded sculptures Harry the Nassau Grouper. It broke my heart, Begg recalled Thursday. I went into kind of a slump, and wondered if I could do that kind of art anymore. But a mysterious unmarked package that arrived Tuesday at Sea Grape Gallery in Punta Gorda would change things. There, wrapped in an old curtain, was Harry. He was a little dirty and literally bent out of shape, but someone evidently paid $21.37 to ship the 3.5-pound sh from Kansas to the gallery, where Begg displays her work. Maybe this will make me want to do (beaded sculptures) again, said Begg, 62. The $5,800 piece of art was stolen from Sea Grape in March 2012. Begg had nished creating the grouper the year prior, after nine months of tedious work. The process involved hand-shaping wires to create an outline, and then stringing together beads of different sizes, colors and stones to carefully situate over the wires to form Harry. The grouper contains hundreds of red jasper and onyx beads. Around the time Harry was stolen, some other pieces belonging to Sea Grape artists were taken including a painting that was displayed at River City Grill. Punta Gorda Police Detective Marty Meddaugh, who worked the missing-grouper case two and a half Sculpture mysteriously returned to local owner after 2 yearsBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERREUNION | 6PUNTA GORDA With little fanfare and no input from the public, city ofcials on Wednesday approved a $73.5 million spending plan that keeps the millage rate status quo. At a budget meeting Wednesday night, City Council members unanimously voted to adopt the 2014-2015 scal year budget, which keeps the millage rate steady at 3.1969 mills. A mill is equal to $1 in taxes for every $1,000 of a propertys taxable value. For the owner of a home assessed at $150,000 with a homestead exemption, the ad valorem tax bill would be about $327, according to the city. The owner of a homesteaded property assessed at $300,000 would pay about $814 in ad valorem taxes. The rate, while the same as last year, represents a slight increase in taxes to the average homeowner, given the rise in property values in 2014. The Charlotte County Property Appraisers Ofce reported that taxable property values increased citywide by 4.1 percent, which is the second year in a row of increasing property values, reversing a previous trend of six straight years of decreasing values. Property taxes are the largest single Punta Gorda adopts new budgetBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERBUDGET | 6READER ADVOCATE David MORRISCOLUMNIST SUN FILE PHOTOCharlotte High School squares o today against Venice in one of the areas most heated rivalries.

Featured EventsPAID ADVERTISEMENTS PORT CHARLOTTE Barbara Holt has given hundreds of pairs of shoes to students over the years, but one pair stands out. He was a little kinder gartner, the guidance counselor said. His friend brought him to me, and she was worried that his shoes were torn up and he was going to fall down the bottoms were almost all the way off. Holt assured the boy she had some new ones that would t him, and the boy asked if he could pick out his pair. I said, Sure. So as we walked down the hall, he started skipping and singing, Im gonna to get new shoes. Im gonna get new shoes. And then his friend started skipping and singing, Youre gonna to get new shoes. People heard them and they were smiling and laughing. When we got to the ofce, I got out the shoes that were his size, and the rst ones he saw were a pair of Spider-Man shoes, and his eyes got so big. He put them on and started hopping up and down and singing, I got new shoes, I got new shoes, and his friend was singing, You got new shoes. I am so blessed to be able to do this, Holt said. This program is very special to me. Holt is the school nurse at Kingsway Elementary School in Port Charlotte. The program is Shoes for Kids, which is the brainchild of Christy Smith of the Sunrise Kiwanis in Port Charlotte. Holt told the story to the club members and the people in the community who helped to collect the 5,500 pairs of shoes this year. Smith and the club invited the corporate partners, leading donors and school workers to breakfast Thursday, and let school nurses and administrators talk about what a decent pair of sneakers can mean to a child. Debbie Heeg, counselor at Myakka River Elementary School in Englewood East, told of a rst-grader who showed up for school on a hot summer day with leather boots up to her knees. She was wobbling because they didnt t. The youngster ended up with a pair of sneakers, pink and purple. Charlotte Harbor Center school nurse Shenna Shine talked about the way shoes can be an extra problem when special needs students wear leg braces. But ill-tting shoes can ruin any kids day, she explained. They dont have happy feet they have sad feet, Shine said. They cant run or play. At Peace River Elementar y School in Charlotte Harbor, where 89.6 percent of students are on the freeor reduced-lunch program, principal Jody Poulakis knows of a 5-year-old foster child whos on her 11th foster home. That pair of shoes may be all shes got thats really hers, she said. Smith, who started Shoes for Kids 10 years ago, gets more shoes every year, as more and more businesses and churches nd out about the program and take up collections. Restaurants, clubs and community groups have special events. Ofces promote their drives and ll up cardboard boxes. People who dont feel like shopping for shoes write checks or kick in a few bucks. Smith says each pair of shoes will go to a school, and will be given to a deserving child before the school year. None will go unworn. You make a world of difference, she told her donors.Email: porter@sun-herald.comShoes for Kids can be something specialBy CHRIS PORTEREXECUTIVE EDITORGET INVOLVED If you would like more information about Shoes for Kids, contact Christy Smith at 941-769-0864 or christyksmith@embarqmail. com.

Our Town Page 4 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, September 19, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS CHARLOTTE COUNTY Assisted living event staff may be too busy to go out knocking on doors to nd people to come in and read to seniors, but a local writers group came up with a list to simplify the process. The Arts and Humanities Council of Charlotte County sponsors the group of 230 active writers, which is called the Charlotte Harbor Writers Group. Paul Holmes, group moderator, said the list of volunteers for elderly folks started because they had created a list of people to read to children in schools this year, and someone in the group suggested it would be nice to do this at retirement homes as well. Many of our older population have lost their eyesight, said volunteer Virginia Crane, an author about to release her ninth book. Plus, they are in an environment that can be boring. Lastly, they enjoy company. Mary Lundeberg, a retired professor, is excited because she knows from volunteering in a nursing home how important it is for the elderly to have visitors and programs. I know from when I used to visit (that) not everyone has a lot of visitors or their families dont live nearby, she said, and its always good for them to meet a new person, have a new experience, and I think reading is a way to connect with a lot of people. According to the U.S. Census, 37 percent of people who live in Charlotte County are seniors. Volunteer Arlene Kincaid, who is an author and a retired speech therapist, is hoping to spread some smiles among this population. Elderly people enjoy hearing other people read to them, so if I can make someone happy and their day go a little easier, then thats what I would like to do, she said, and my writing is a lot of humorous poetry and short stories because I believe that laughter is our best medicine and by golly its free, and once we smile it starts to spread. The group has prepared a list of 32 volunteers. What we need to do above all else is get the message out to assisted living places that are looking for something to break the monotony for the old folks, to make them laugh, cry, and have a really enjoyable time, Holmes said. Holmes can be contacted at pgholmes@ comcast.net. One way to use the list is to send an email request for the list to Holmes, then contact the volunteers directly and arrange for them to visit your facility. Another is to send a request for volunteers to the same email including date, time and location, then Holmes will contact the volun teers and arrange for them to visit.Email: sbrokaw@sun-herald.comLocal volunteers hit the books with the elderlyBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITER PORT CHARLOTTE Alexis Lynch may have saved three lives Thursday. Thats what a donation of just one pint of blood can do, according to the American Red Cross. Its fun saving other peoples lives, said Alexis,17, who donated a pint during a blood drive at Port Charlotte High School. Alexis, who has donated three times, said shes afraid of needles, so this is a good way to overcome that fear. My doctor told me about a little girl she donated platelets for. It made me understand more how beneficial it is, she said. Mobile donation trucks from OneBlood Inc. were at the school on Thursday and will be there again today from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. A few students said it just feels good to help people. Diamond Walker, 17, chose to donate because she has a rare blood type, O-negative, which makes her a universal donor. I want to help save lives whenever I can, she said. The schools Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps. Battalion hosted the event. According to a OneBlood spokesper son, PCHS has collected more blood donations than any other high school in the county. Commander Steven Davis, senior naval science instructor, said he is proud of the NJROTC earning the 2012 Top Producers Award for 1,776 lives saved, which means nearly 600 pints were donated. Brianna Spieldenner, 18, of the Navy JROTC, has been active in the blood drive since her sophomore year, and this year she oversees the operation of the event as its commanding officer. She said the goal for this week is to get 150 pints of blood, and the goal for the year is 500 pints. The quarterly blood drive will be held again in December. I think it helps high school students get a sense of helping people by making a sacrifice for others, Brianna said, and it helps our unit personally because we have a chance to help the community. Brianna said the NJROTC have made some adjustments since last year to make it more and efficient. They decided to try do some things differently and have kids not skip classes so this wouldnt be as big a distraction, she said. They (students) can go whenever they sign up for it, but we make sure they go back to class on time.The blood drives are open to the community. In addition to feeling good about giving back, donors receive some small tokens of appreciation, like a free T-shirt. Adults who donate are sent a letter, and students who donate four pints of blood through high school get a special cord at graduation.

Our Town Page 6 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, September 19, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE Adult playground dedicated in Punta Gorda SUN PHOTOS BY BRENDA BARBOSAJune Suller and Doris Fox of Punta Gorda test out the new outdoor gym equipment at the Linear Park. Punta Gorda Mayor Rachel Keesling, front, poses with members of the Punta Gorda Rotary Club during a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the adult playground in the citys Linear Park Wednesday. The Rotary Club donated $25,000 to the city for the purchase of specialized outdoor gym equip ment. The installation of the equipment was donated by the Punta Gorda Home Depot. by a big Indians lineman and stayed on the turf for awhile. That brought Lay running onto the eld. Are you going to let him knock you out of the game? he asked his quar terback. That got Weaver off the eld. And we won the game, Lay recalled with a laugh. Lay also had the opportunity to play his own kind of mind games with Venices legendary coach Jim Powell. At one game up in Venice, Lay told his Charlotte team to wear their blue jerseys, since they felt they were invincible in them. As they warmed up, Powell stormed over to Lay and demanded they change their shirts, since Venice wore dark green at home. The Tarpons changed into white. But they kept on their invincible blue shirts while they warmed up. Such are the memories that make up the Charlotte-Venice football rivalry, a series led by the Indians 54-25-2 that continues tonight in Punta Gorda. Its one of the Tarpons big rivalries, one that predates their inter-county matchup with Port Charlotte and goes back to the days of the Great Depression. The rivalry took a hiatus in the early s, but with the two teams meeting tonight, its as strong as ever and one that current Venice coach John Peacock has grown to love, though he played his ball in Sarasota at Cardinal Mooney. We always make sure to get it scheduled, Peacock said. Since 2001, the Sun Coast Media Bowl trophy has gone to the winner of this yearly contest, something that has been a point of pride. The Bowl was originally presented to the winner of the Venice-Lemon Bay game, but changed to the Charlotte-Venice game in 2001. Charlotte won that game, 2623, over the defending state champion Indians. I remember the cup, said Justin Midgett, who quarterbacked the Tarpons in 2001 and 2002. Everybody wanted to hold the cup. It was like the Stanley Cup. Everyone wanted to put stuff in it the keys to the house or ll it up with juice or something. Lately, its been a game that had some fantastic nishes: 2012: Charlotte defeated Venice 24-21 when Clyde Newton scored a one-yard touchdown with four seconds left, hopping over a fallen Venice defender at the goal line. 2011: Venice defeated Charlotte 2120 on a Danny Dillard goal-line plunge with one second left. This happened after the Indians trailed by 17 points at halftime. 2008: Charlotte defeated Venice 2521 in the only playoff meeting between the two when Troy McClary returned a punt for an 87-yard touchdown, a punt Indian faithful still believe that McClary caught with his knee down on the tur f. 2000: Venice defeated Charlotte 61-54 in double-overtime, a game that preserved Venices unblemished record on the way to the state championship. The Indians had won a threeteam playoff for a playoff spot with Charlotte and Naples the year before with a Hail Mary pass. The game has a reputation for being an emotionally charged night, lling both sides of whatever stadium is hosting the contest, whether thats Charlottes Tarpon Stadium or Venices Powell-Davis Stadium. Venice senior Langston Provitt said that those emotions carry over to tonight. Its denitely high intensity fast-paced, hard-hitting, Provitt said. Its really physical out there and we can expect that again this year. Charlotte coach Binky Waldrop said the rivalry has been taken to a new level in recent years. Since 2000, its become one of the biggest games in the area because of the success we both have had, he said. Theyve won a lot of district titles, weve won a lot of district titles. When good teams play each other, it adds a little more to it.Email: shore@sun-herald.comRIVALRYFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY CHRIS PORTERThe Sun Coast Media Bowl between Charlotte High School and Venice High kicks o today.

They include all residential properties, vacant land and commercial buildings. The city will use the property-tax revenues to fund 40 percent of its general fund budget for the 2014-15 scal year. The rest comes from a variety of revenue streams, including utility fees, franchise surcharges and lease revenues. After thanking staff for their hard work preparing the budget, City Councilwomen Carolyn Freeland and Nancy Prafke made a pitch for the infrastruc ture sales-tax surcharge, better known as the penny sales tax, which will go before voters in November. The penny tax is an additional 1 percent sales tax levied by Charlotte County to raise revenue for construction, reconstruction and improvements of public facilities. Voters approved an extension of the tax in 2008 that will end Dec. 31, unless extended by voter refer endum for an additional six years. If an extension is approved, the city stands to receive an estimated $16 million in revenue over a six-year period. Im pleased that this part of our (budget) process is complete for this year, Freeland said. My concern would be for the 1 percent sales tax. If it does not pass, there is going to be signicant changes next year in our millage rate to approve sufcient ad valorem to support our projects. As it stands, several capital projects, including a new South County library, would not be possible without the additional sales-tax revenues, ofcials said. Some of the projects in the 1 percent sales-tax list are not wants-to, they are needs-to, Assistant Finance Director Sharon Knippenberg said at a budget workshop. In addition to the budget, the City Council also approved recommendations from the Punta Gorda Isles and Burnt Store Isles canal advisory board for annual canal-maintenance assessments, which remained unchanged. Residential property owners in PGI can expect to pay $500 per year for canal maintenance, while BSI homeowners can expect to pay an annual maintenance cost of $400.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comBUDGETFROM PAGE 1 years ago, met with Begg on Wednesday. Of course I remembered Harry the Grouper, Meddaugh told the Sun The sculpture is the only piece of art stolen from around that time that has been returned, he added. No suspects ever were identied. Through her website, Begg vowed not to press criminal charges if Harry ever was returned to the gallery. She has decided to stick to her promise. The police case is closed. If only Harry could talk and tell us what hes been through ..., Begg said. What happened to Harry may remain a mystery. But the story of how the grouper came to be is one that is special to its creator, which is why shes glad to have it back. In the early 1990s, Begg cruised the Caribbean on a 30-foot sailboat with her family. She befriended a man in Nassau, Bahamas, named Bronson Hartley a local who popularized a famous helmet-diving tourist attraction named Hartleys Undersea Walk. Under the water, Hartley delighted visitors by making a real grouper which he named Harry do tricks. In 1997, Begg and her husband Lloyd settled in Cape Coral. She began displaying work at Sea Grape right after Hurricane Charley. Although Begg creates various types of art, she was drawn to bead sculpting because she enjoys the challenge of completing delicate, detailed work. She eventually was inspired to create Harry. Were so delighted Harry is back, said Barbara Albin, a Sea Grape artist and past president. Its a very special piece. We had a lot of people asking us about what happened to it. Begg said it was hard to sell her beaded creations at rst, because she grew attached to them after working on them for so long. However the rst sculpture she sold a tortoise went for $3,200. It became easier to let go of her work. But not Harry, even though his estimated worth is almost $6,000. Right now, I just want to enjoy him being back for the next couple of weeks, Begg said. Some of Tania Beggs art including Harry often can be seen on display at Sea Grape Gallery, 113 W.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS SOUTH OF PUNTA GORDA An DeSoto County woman is facing 16 charges related to a recent animal-cruelty case, where Charlotte County Animal Control ofcials said she kept horses and other farm animals that were sick, starving and underweight. Lindsey Victoria Doornenbal, 31, of the 5600 block of Southwest Charolais Avenue, Nocatee, was served a warrant for her arrest by DeSoto County Sheriffs deputies Tuesday in Arcadia. She was transported to the Charlotte County Jail on Thursday, where she was held on $38,000 bond for 14 counts of animal neglect and two felony counts of animal cruelty. In June, Animal Control received an anonymous complaint about a property on the 41000 block of Little Farm Road, south of Punta Gorda. Authorities found three goats, four donkeys, four horses and eight miniature horses, some of which were underweight. Doornenbal, the animals owner, recently had moved from Iowa, and had the animals sent down. She told ofcers she was housing the animals there only temporarily. When Animal Control checked back less than a month later, the animals were gone. However, Aug. 10, two unspecied animals escaped from the property and were hit by cars, court documents show. One was killed; the other had to be euthanized. Ofcers went back to the property and found the animals still were there and were in bad shape some had rotten teeth, were anemic or were suffering from fungal conditions of the skin. The animals were seized; Animal Control later won custody of them, and they were rehomed late last month. A warrant then was issued for Doornenbals arrest.Report: Arcadia bus driver cited in crashDESOTO COUNTY A school bus driver who had 37 students on board has been cited for careless driving after authorities say she was at fault for a crash that sent a local man to the hospital early Thursday.

Arguijo told investigators she had turned around to check on the students and failed to see the stopped Cadillac in front of the bus. The Cadillacs driver Timothy Taylor, 45, of Punta Gorda was taken to DeSoto Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. Neither Arguijo nor any of the students was injured. Its unclear what school the kids attended. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Office reported the following arrests: Christopher Alan Bostick, 51, of Brandon, Fla. Charge: failure to appear. Bond: none.

CHARLOTTE COUNTY A Suncoast veteran went to jail Wednesday in order to keep all of his VA disability check. Its all because he and his wife are divorcing and she wants half. Under federal law, the money is exempt from alimony payments. But state law says she may be entitled to it. Terry Lynn, 45, of Punta Gorda, says he wants to set a precedent to help all veterans in similar situations. He is on full disability from injuries he suffered while serving as a Marine during the Gulf War, but is now going through a divorce battle with his wife he met after his time in the military. He says she wants nearly half of what he gets: $1,500 a month.Its how I pay my bills. There is no way I can afford to pay that amount and still survive, says Lynn.He says hes bought her a house and made other compensations, but thats as far as hes willing to go. There is actually federal laws which protect the veterans compensation check from alimony and being garnished. ABC 7 contacted the National Veterans Legal Service Program in Washington D.C. They say its an issue which has been argued across the country. U.S. Title 38 says VA benets are exempt from taxation, claims of creditors, and other legal processes. It makes no exception for alimony. Lynn says Florida courts, though, are not following it. Florida law does allow for alimony. What they are doing is putting state law over federal law. To get around it they dont say you have to give your VA check. They say you have to pay alimony and they dont care where you get it from. Some states have passed laws to specically protect the veteran in this type of situation. Florida is not one of them. I dont believe the American people want to be paying for people who didnt serve; who didnt support the veterans when they were serving. They were not there during that time of conict. They dont feel the pain the disabled veterans do. Unwilling to pay, Wednesday afternoon in a Charlotte County courtroom, Lynn was put in handcuffs and placed under arrest. He says his goal is to ght for change and set a precedent. Its not about me, its about other veter ans. We have 1.6 million veterans in Florida. How many of them are going through this same thing?Veteran chooses jail over giving disability money to ex-wifeBy JOSH TAYLORABC 7 LYNN Fundraiser for Future BuildersThe second annual Celebrity Server fundraiser will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at Ruby Tuesday, 1441 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte.

It was for children young and old to touch, climb, pretend and explore. There was music, food and lots to see, and even a few cannon shots fired to keep the pirates at bay! We had a great turnout. Please watch where you puEditor: Congratulations to CVS for removing all tobacco products from their stores. I am frustrated, however, with smoking employees at many establishments. It is not uncommon to see an employee, or even a customer, standing or sitting right outside the door of a place of business and pufng away. All who enter must walk through their smoke. Smokers should also be aware of the wind that often blows their harmful smoke right into the path of many of us who cannot tolerate tobacco smoke. Watch where you puff!Barbara Hu Punta GordaThanks for help with landscapingEditor: On behalf of the board and staff of The New Paradigm Foundation, I would like to thank Lowes Port Charlotte store for their generous donation of materials, time and talent given recently to landscape one of the foundations Transitional Housing Program homes in Englewood. On three of what must have been the hottest days of this summer, volunteers from the store converged at the house with plants, mulch, topsoil and grass seed. On their first visit, they proceeded to prepare the areas around the house with weeding, removing old plants and planning placement of new plants and trees, as well as pressure cleaning the entire house. Next visit, plants were placed where they would look and grow best, edging was installed and little extras were added: solar lights, trellis for a new vine and small plants in pots to line the area outside the back slider. The last visit saw new topsoil put down, new grass seed planted and the whole area watered with a new hose and sprinkler. Special thanks must go out to Gil, who was in charge of this project and showed up all three days, even those days when only a few other employees could be spared from the store. Thanks to the generosity of this store and employees, this house now looks warm and inviting and will give its tenants a sense of pride and hope for the future.Kathleen Nelson EnglewoodMore than usual misrepresentationsEditor: A letter to the editor Sept. 16 contained more than the average number of untruths about our president. Let me address just a few of the most ridiculous statements. First, lets be clear about ISIL. This is a group of terrorists who use religion as the justication for beheading foreigners and killing many Muslims. The writer should be aware that almost all Islamic countries have united to ght ISIL. I agree that we need to investigate the killing of four Americans at Benghazi. Congress cut funding well below the $2.15 billion requested by the Obama administration. Lets ask Congress to explain cutting $128 million in 2011 and another $331 million in 2012, then ignoring Secretary Clintons warning that cuts would be detrimental to Americas security. Im not sure what untruths she means about Obamacare (ACA) because premiums are down and more treatments, including pre-existing conditions, are covered. The only places where premiums are higher are states where ACA has been stalled. Last, I feel sorry for the Marine who sits in a Mexican jail for breaking the law. If he had driven on any military base or federal property he would be in jail here instead. If you break the law, you are held accountable. As Americans we should be working together to stay strong. Attacks on our way of life come from within by those who get their news from Fox and those who ignore the constitutional protection of all people, even those different.Timothy Tompas Punta Gorda LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

My reasons for writing is to remind North Port residents of what a ne town we live in. Im talking about the friendliness and helpfulness of people, starting with the Chamber of Commerce. When we decided what area we were moving to, we contacted them and they sent us a load of information. From there we were able to choose a health care center whose ofce manager, Jamie, helped me above and beyond in negotiating some of the health care loopholes, not to mention the quality of the health care professionals themselves. Our new neighbors immediately came over to introduce themselves and to offer any help they could. And, just looking through the newspaper, you can nd activities and clubs to get involved in. Although we have no children living with us, the school system is impressive. My husband loves shing and has found all kinds of help from Fishin Franks, and different locales to sh from. Finally, I would like to thank the two utility workers who gave me directions, since I was totally lost, even with a GPS. They saw the puzzled look on my face and said, Just follow me, Im going that way. Anyway, thank you gentlemen, and North Port, we are happy to be living here.Roberta Christy North PortPresident causing national regressionEditor: One day in the 1990s, my wife and I got on a regularly scheduled airliner in Boston and observed that a fellow passenger was Attorney General Janet Reno. She was accompanied by two or three agents. A few weeks ago, Attorney General Eric Holder, prince of the realm, went to Ferguson, Mo., in a U.S. airplane that looked like the Air Force One that usually ies the empty suit king around. Of course, these days the treasurys coffers are overowing with cash that has to be spent on frills for the royalty. Meanwhile, the empty suit king has belatedly put forth a plan to destroy ISIL forces which is obviously way too weak and lled with smoke and mirrors to even approach destroying them. And the Congress is being forced to reluctantly agree in spite of their misgivings, primarily because their disagreement would result in their being blamed for the failures that are going to occur. The empty suit king has become adept at blaming all problems resulting from his actions, or inactions, on anybody and everybody else. I am frightened and deeply concerned about whether or not the country can survive two more years with this president. Over 225 years we are bound to have had a few duds, but I think this is the rst one to actually cause us to regress on all fronts.Dave Robertson Punta GordaOther signs on access roadsEditor: I just read about the sign that had to be taken down from the Christian bookstore on the access road. I just rode down U.S. 41 south on the access road side across from the Christian bookstore and there were advertising signs there. From what I was told, those business owners, I guess, own the property, which is no problem, of course, but on the side where the Christian store is I guess the code is different. I dont know, but there are signs on both of the access roads.Jenny Hornug Port Charlotte Taking a SWOT at CharlotteOUR POSITION: Strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats analysis highlight promise and vulnerability.A common tool entities use to gauge their health is a SWOT analysis. The acronym stands for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Having recently reviewed a SWOT analysis about homelessness conducted by the Gulf Coast Partnership, we applied the tool to Charlotte Countys economic development prospects. The countys strengths include: Location on Gulf Coast between two major metropolitan markets. More than 1.5 million people within a 50-mile radius of Port Charlotte. Broad range of housing from luxury to affordable for workers, managers and executives. Active public and private economic development entities to assist with business relocation and/or expansion. Competitive land, lease and sales prices for commercial and industrial property. Incentives for job creation and grant assistance for infrastructure and site development. Transportation and logistical links via Interstate 75 and Punta Gorda Airport; two deep-water ports within 75 miles provide international import-export opportunities. Steadily growing population that will benet from migration of baby boomers over the next two decades. High-quality health care facilities, including four full-service hospitals and numerous outpatient surgical and treatment centers. The countys weaknesses include: Low proportion of working age residents and a lower median household income compared to neighboring counties. Lack of university-level post-secondary institution. Underfunded economic and tourism development departments. Glut of small single-family vacant lots and a dearth of consolidated developable residential property in a housing market where demand is for homes within gated communities. Limited presence of high-tech, high-wage employers. Growing reputation of school district as an underachiever, deterring potential businesses and employees from relocating here. Low supply of skilled workers in growth industries such as high-tech, construction, and manufacturing. The countys opportunities include: High numbers of retirees creating demand for housing, leisure activities, health care and services. Low housing costs compared to neighboring counties that should attract developers as prices rise in built-out markets. The development of Babcock Ranch and the re-emergence of Burnt Store and U.S. 17 corridors as housing market strengthens. Emergence of a distribution hub near Punta Gorda Airport. Threats to the countys economic health include: Uncertain long-term property insurance rates. Sea-level rise could threaten property values in coastal communities and saltwater intrusion could impact water supplies. Voter rejection of sales tax extension would delay or eliminate investment in infrastructure and amenities. Spread of blight from Parkside to nearby neighborhoods with similarly aging housing stock, low income owners and high percentage of rental units. History repeats itself: Another direct hit by a hurricane or another real estate bubble. The above is far from a complete list and the great unknown is whether threats and weaknesses will trump strengths and oppor tunities. Our bet is on slow and steady growth interspersed with minor jolts.OUR VIEW

The Sun /Friday, September 19, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINTWhich of our two great political parties is the stronger? Maybe it makes more sense to ask which of the two is weaker. The case that the Republicans are weaker is easy to state. Democrats have won four of the last six presidential elections, from 1992 to 2012, and won a plurality of the popular vote in a fth. This is a vivid contrast from the period 1968 to 1988, when Republicans won ve of six presidential elections. The case that the Democrats are weaker is not much harder to make. Democrats have failed to win a majority in the House of Representatives, the branch of government closest to the people, in eight of the last 10 elections, from 1994 to 2012. Thats quite a contrast from the period, from 1954 to 1992, when Democrats won House majorities in 20 consecutive elections. But neither side is in as strong a position as the other was in the past. Republicans presidential vote margins averaged 10 percent in 1968-88. Democrats margins averaged 4 percent in 1992-2012. As for the House, Democrats won at least 243 seats in every election from 1958 to 1992. Republicans peak between 1994 and 2012 was 242 seats. An assessment of their strength going forward depends on how well they are succeeding in maximizing their vote in line with their historic character. For the two parties are not twins. The Republican Party, through its 160-year history, has had a core support group which is thought of as typically American but which by itself is not a national majority: Northern Protestants in the 19th century, married white people in America today. The Democratic party, over its 182-year history, has been a collection of out groups, often with little in common, but with majority potential when they stick together: Catholic immigrants and white Southerners in the 19th century, blacks and gentry/university liberals today. Barack Obama and the Democrats amassed a 53 percent majority in 2008, the largest in 20 years, but barely kept it together in 2012, when he won 51 percent the rst American president re-elected with a reduced percentage of the vote. Obama Democrats maximized turnout among heavily favor able groups blacks, Hispanics, unmarried women. They also got small majorities from traditional Midwestern Democratic constituencies union members and retirees in Ohio and Michigan, dovishminded Germanand Scandinavian-Americans in Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. But those margins are tenuous. Democrats green-tinged opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline and hostility to fracking may hurt in the manufacturing belt, just as their war on coal has delivered the Jacksonian belt from western Pennsylvania southwest to Tennessee, Arkansas and Texas to Republicans. Military involvement in the Middle East may dampen dovish turnout. Republicans have different challenges. The party is united in opposition to Obama policies, and differences over tactics have become muted as Republicans have recoiled from the backlash they suffered after the 2013 government shutdown. Splits over foreign policy have tended to disappear in the wake of the beheadings by the Islamic State. That leaves Republicans this year well-positioned to hold their House majority and with a better than 50 percent chance for a Senate majority. They are very far, however, from selecting a presidential nominee, with no clear leaders among a dozen or so potential candidates. And while theyve consolidated their party core, theyre very far from coming up with a set of policies that can appeal to a majority of voters. Ideally, every party wants a nominee to produce a platform, a set of policies, that works in the primaries, works in the general election and works in governing. Thats easy to say, but hard to do. Candidates feel pressure to move toward the wings in primaries, toward the center in the fall election, and toward acquiescence to the status quo once in ofce. Conservative thinkers of varying stripes, including some ofceholders and presidential potentials, have been producing innovative policies that dont simply copy platforms of the past. Attractive new ideas will likely nd their way into candidates platforms and debates. Republicans face an uphill task in getting their ideas out because of the hostility or incomprehension of many in old-line media. They have a lot of hard work ahead of them, with no guarantee of a successful outcome. As for Democrats, they face issues with potential fractures in their disparate top-and-bottom coalition. So which party is weaker? Your call. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner. Readers can reach him via www. washingtonexaminer.com. Which is the weaker party? Your call Michael Barone U.S. leadership of the war on terror ism has entered its second phase. Dealing with Islamic State forces in Iraq is just another leg of the ght. Deciding to expand U.S. bombing to Syria with the goal of destroy ing the terrorist groups leadership and about two-thirds of its ghters will take years. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had a warning for those who thought a quick dose of U.S. repower could do the trick. At a Senate Armed Services Committee meeting Tuesday, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, asked what would be required to destroy the Islamic State within 90 days. Its not possible, Senator, Dempsey replied. We could destroy a lot of equipment; we could drive them under ground, if you will. But as I said, they will only be defeated or destroyed once theyre rejected by the populations in which they hide. The Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were the Pearl Harbor of this war on terrorism, and Osama bin Ladens al-Qaida was only the beginning. Bin Laden showed other terrorist leaders how to gain attention, along with recruits and nancial support: Challenge the worlds major superpower. His goal in bringing down the World Trade Center, hitting the Pentagon and killing thousands of Americans was to force the Bush administrations withdrawal from the Middle East, where his real targets were Saudi Arabias royal family and the secular leaders in Egypt, Libya and Iraq. Bin Laden was wrong about the United States. The country rallied around Bush, and core al-Qaida which was never large saw its operations disrupted, senior leaders captured or killed, and its nancial support squeezed. Yet, even bin Ladens death has not ended al-Qaidas threat to the United States. Offshoots have appeared in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, North Africa and Syria primarily where Sunni or other groups felt mistreated by their own governments. All required U.S. attention. Extensive intelligence activities at home and abroad, helped by some luck, have allowed the country to escape another major terrorist attack aside from the bombing last year at the Boston Marathon. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State, has emerged as a major threat, thanks to his brutality, public relations skills, and military successes in Iraq and Syria. He topped it all with horrendous beheadings of two American journalists and a British aid worker. Those acts showed that Baghdadi had learned from bin Laden but in a simpler, bloody way how he could get the attention of Americans and the world. Now what? Such a terrorist group will only be defeated when moderate Arab and Muslim populations in the region reject it, Dempsey told the Senate panel Tuesday. And therefore, the way forward seems to me to run clearly through a coalition of Arab and Muslim partners and not through the ownership of the United States in this issue. The plan is to get the new Baghdad government to reach out to Sunni areas where the Islamic State, according to Dempsey, has either coerced or co-opted or driven away about 48 to 54 Sunni tribes. U.S. military teams have assessed that 26 of 50 Iraqi army brigades are capable of partnering with U.S. air support. Getting forces on the offensive in the west and north of Iraq, while the Kurds, with U.S. support, press from the north to the south, I think will place the Islamic State in an untenable position, Dempsey said. Syria is much harder. First, there is no central party to work with there. The Syrian moderate military units that the United States hopes to develop need a chain of command responsive to some Syrian political structure, not responsive to us, Dempsey said. These cant be simply surrogates and proxies; they have to be tied, linked to some political structure that ultimately could assist in the governing of Syria when nally the Assad regime is either overthrown or, through the negotiation, is changed. Another problem is that the U.S. plan envisions training just 5,000 ghters a year, in small groups that go through in eight-week cycles. The rst three to ve months, however, will be devoted to setting up training facilities primarily in Saudi Arabia, then recruiting mostly among refugees outside Syria. We think well be recruiting mostly from displaced populations, and therefore it wont be as though theyre giving up the security of their families to come and train with us, Dempsey said. This ghting forces task is to go after Islamic State targets in Syria, aided by U.S.-directed air power. The number that our military planners were considering was about 12,000, Dempsey said at the hearing. The U.S.-trained Syrians would not be the only forces on the ground, according to Dempsey. If youre asking me how does the opposition in Syria nally prevail against the Islamic State, I think its going to require the assistance of, in particular, Jordanians and probably some of the Syrian Kurds, and probably the Turks. President Obama and top administration ofcials need to prepare the country for this next phase. This will not be quick, though the number of Americans on the ground will not be great. Clearly, however, it is a work in progress with no guaranteed end in sight.

The Sun /Friday, September 19, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 11 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Charlotte and Sarasota counties should see rain today, said Tyler Fleming, a meteorologist at Tampas National Weather Service ofce. Rain chances today are around 80 percent and could be higher for coastal areas. He said both counties can anticipate storm systems to build in the morning and continue throughout the day. Cooler temperatures also will accompany the rainfall. Fleming cited temperatures in the low to mid-80s for today, while Saturday and Sunday will have highs in the middle and upper 80s, respectively. Rainfall will taper off after today, with a 50 percent chance Saturday and a 40 percent chance on Sunday. Fleming said the rain isnt due to an identiable pressure system or coastal weather conditions. He called the current weather pattern an upper-level disturbance, which simply means that conditions in the atmosphere are encouraging clouds and rain to develop. Moving into next week, Fleming said the brief respite from the heat will give way to summertime weather and higher temperatures once again. Activity in the tropics wont affect Charlotte and Sarasota counties for the foreseeable future, he said. Fleming reported that activity being monitored off the coast of Africa was still in the early stages of development. It wont be until the middle of next week before it will develop into anything, he said.Cooler weekend expected after rainBy JOEL LANGHAMSUN CORRESPONDENT | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSConflict assessment meeting setThe staffs of the Charlotte County government and the Peace River/Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority will conduct a conflictassessment meeting, pursuant to Florida Statutes Chapter 164, at 8 a.m. Sept. 29 in Room B-106 of the Charlotte County Administration Center, 18500 Murdock Circle, Murdock.

For more information, call 941-743-1330. SARASOTA COUNTY Imagine Schools at North Port and Palmer Ranch have been directed by the Sarasota County School District to create plans to correct deteriorating nancial situations under which both charter school campuses are operating. In an Aug. 19 workshop meeting, during a discussion about whether the district should continue sharing capital funds and referendum dollars with charter schools, Superintendent Lori White informed School Board members that district staff was drafting letters to (the Imagine Schools) governing boards asking for further explanation and what theyre doing to resolve the situation, and theyre given time to respond. Letters dated Sept. 8 were sent to the presidents of both schools governing boards. Both schools, which were given 30 days to reply, have needed loans from Virginia-based parent company Imagine Schools Inc. to stay in the black. Chris Phillips, Imagine North Ports governing board president, returned correspondence on Sept. 12, thanking White and her staff for keeping a watchful eye out on our school and agreeing to gladly put together a nancial corrective action plan on how they intend to turn school nances around, stating additionally that steps have already been taken in that direction. With due diligence of our school administrative team and faculty ... the Board has adopted a trimmed budget for the 2014-2015 school year, has borrowed from our partner to ensure the nancial stability of our school and with our enrollment increasing, has put us on a path in the right nancial direction, Phillips wrote. Phillips letter laid the blame for the schools nancial hardship on the well-publicized legal issue we had with the previous principal and the Governing Board, when former principal Justin Matthews led an $8 million budget including 200 more children than were in the school off Toledo Blade Boulevard. A court battle ensued after Matthews and the schools previous board decided to break away from Imagine Schools Inc. in February 2013. Matthews left the school as part of a settlement agreement in a civil suit. Following his departure, many families pulled their children from Imagine. In his letter to White, Phillips called the situation a period of strife and confusion. At last count in late August, 1,038 students attended grades K-12 at Imagine School at North Port, 129 fewer than projected for the 20142015 school year. Imagine School at North Port upper campus principal Steve Black said Thursday the districts letter is more of a for mality, and the schools governing board has already started the process of cutting unneeded expenses. This summer, one full-time position was cut and several staff were reduced to part time to save money. Over two scal years, $1.1 million in loans from the parent company they would have loaned up to $1.5 million, but we didnt need that much because we were able to trim things, Black said kept Imagine North Port out of the red. According to Whites letter, the 2014-15 Imagine North Port operating budget turned in to the district reects the need of an additional $270,000 from Imagine Inc. in order to provide an operating surplus of revenues over expenditures. Weve been working on this since December (2013), he said, adding the district simply wants those continued cost-savings efforts placed in writing. Even if there was not a letter from Ms. White, we have a responsibility to always be scally prudent, and always be monitoring things. Well be cooperative with the district. At the Palmer Ranch campus, several advances to the school from Imagine Inc., totaling $435,283, have already been written off, and the Palmer Ranch 2014-15 operating budget given to the district showed the need for $1,075,170 from Imagine Inc. in order to keep revenues above expenditures, an amount that would exceed the $1.5 million in loans available from the parent company.Email: annek@sun-herald.comDistrict monitoring Imagine financesBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER GENERALSPECIAL REV.DEBT SVC.CAPITALPROPRIETAR Y TOTAL ALL FUND FUNDSFUNDSFUNDS FUNDS FUNDS rf nnntn b ftt fffrn bbbb n nn frtff tbbb tnfrbb n tntf ft ftn frrfn fbtbn ttbbb ntnft tfft nb bbbb fbtnfr ffrbfn rbbb nnbb bb frff fnbfb rtrr rnb nf nrnb nbttf bbfr fb f rnbn fb TOTAL SOURCES nft frbb fnbnf ftbn bnn fbbrbbr nnn frtrtr rfntn frffr fbbnbttt rnb TOTAL ESTIMATED REVENUES, TRANSFERS & BALANCES EXPENDITURES nftfb fnnn fbf nfb tnfr fnr tttfn frn fbrnt rf fbbb t fnfntt fnnr r ft fnt fffbf nfnrb ffft nrttb ffrf nn frrtn ffbft rtrtb bbtf nbbrrr tn frttr bbb ftbf nffr rrtntb fbrb nn frfr btfnn bfb TOTAL EXPENDITURES rtff tbrrt t frtbf fft fnfrb TOTAL APPROPRIATED EXPENDITURES& RESERVES Net Bud g et Calculation: Total Ex p enditures Less: Transfers and Reserves Net Bud g et MILLAGEANTICIPATED MILLAGEANTICIPATED COUNTYWIDE FUNDS: PROPOSEDFY14/15 REVENUE MUNICIPAL SERVICES TAXING UNIT (MSTU): PROPOSEDFY14/15 REVENUE bbrf tbt tnnbntr ftbf fn frftt bntfnbfr bbbffntt bt nnfbn bb tbb bft trn TOTAL COUNTYWIDE: Total Municipal Services Taxing Units VOTED DEBT SERVICE MILLAGE bbbbbrfnntb frbrrbtfrrfbrtbffrftbfnnrbtbrESTIMATED REVENUESnbrfttfrtbfftrbtfrrfbrTHE TENTATIVE BUDGETS ARE ON FILE IN THE OFFICE OF THE CHARLOTTE COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS,THE COUNTY BUDGET OFFICE, AND THE OFFICE OF THE CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT AS A PUBLIC RECORD. 482973 rfffnrt bffnr tffnrtttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt tbn tttttttttttttt tffnrttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt ffnrtttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt rf n DATE: f TIME: tt PLACE: TOWN: bt bffn t 482974 Publish Friday, September 19, 2014 NOTICE OF PROPOSED TAX INCREASE

Our Town Page 12 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, September 19, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS North of Cape Coral along the Burnt Store Road corridor, Charlotte Countys slumbering homebuilding industry is slowly rekindling. Theyre making a run for Lee County, Cape Coral-based Paul Homes co-owner Bob Knight said half-jokingly hes noticed a lot more construction, for example, in Burnt Store Lakes just across the Lee County line. The reasons arent hard to see, he said: the rapidly advancing four-laning of the road along with the recent extension of impact fee cuts by Punta Gorda. Bob Miller, vice president of Punta Gorda-based Boyette & Miller Construction & Development, does mainly commercial structures, but said hes noticed the change along Burnt Store. Its like holy cow, theres a lot going on here, he said, noting that single-family-home permits for the county are up sharply. I live in Burnt Store Isles on Macedonia Drive and in the last year 15 houses on my street were built, said Miller, who is president of the Charlotte County Building Industry Association. Statistics support that observation: according to FGCUs Regional Economic Research Institute, 52 permits for single-family homes were pulled in July in Charlotte, 20 more than the 32 in July 2013. Gary Jackson, director of the institute, said those numbers are part of a general uptick in residential construction in Southwest Florida. Part of it is people feeling better about the economy: Were starting to see more condence. Randy Thibaut, CEO of Fort Myers-based Land Solutions, said that in particular Charlotte is beneting economically from factors including Allegiant Air, which operates locally out of Charlotte County Airport. Allegiants discount ights to many Northern cities are starting to attract people who are willing to drive a few miles to save money over what theyd pay at Southwest Florida International Airport, he said. The trend is likely to continue, Thibaut said, noting that the Charlotte airport is going to be nishing up soon on an $8 million expansion. At a time when home prices across the region have been increasing steadily, Charlotte is in a good position to compete against the costlier Lee and Collier markets, he said. As our area (Lee) prices people out of the market, theyll go to Charlotte, Thibaut said. The future of Charlotte County is that if you want to buy a house in Lee or Collier for $200,000 or less, youre not going to be able to do that for the most part. In July, the median price for a single-family home sold with the help of a Realtor was $179,900 in Lee County but only $151,950 in Charlotte. Were starting to see people buying in south Charlotte County who are commuting to Fort Myers because in 20 minutes you can be from Burnt Store to Cape Coral. One consequence of that is the recent ow of younger families into the Burnt Store area, attracted by lower prices and the newly widened Burnt Store Road that makes commuting possible. The wider road is also keeping people from leaving Burnt Store as they age and become less willing or able to deal with the highway known for years as a dangerous road, especially at night. Many of the more elderly people didnt want to traverse that road, said Robert Pietrasanta, president of the Burnt Store Lakes Property Owners Association. They moved to Punta Gorda and gave that as a reason. But theyre being replaced by younger families, he said, and Burnt Store Lakes is already gearing up to take advantage of that. Theyre looking at adding a nature trail (also accessible to golf carts) as well as a soccer eld to attract the new generation, Pietrasanta said although bocce ball and pickleball courts are also on the table for older residents. Gene Murtha, president of the Burnt Store Isles Association, said hes already noticing that more new arrivals in the community are younger families attracted by the lower prices compared to Lee. Young people have found these houses a lot more affordable. As Charlotte County grows, it likely will be through smaller new communities than those in Lee and Collier, Thibaut said. Youre not going to get the 3,000-unit communities. Still, he said, the growth will come. This is not short term, but long term.Charlotte County home building starts to catch upBy DICK HOGANFORT MYERS NEWS-PRESS FGCU is cutting back its enrollment growth plan, opting for quality over quantity in building its student body of the future. For much of the 2000s, FGCU was among the fastest-growing universities in the nation. Annual enrollment was climbing by double-digit percentages, and new academic buildings and residence halls opened their doors each fall to accommodate the surge of students. Earning an acceptance letter got tougher Tuesday. The Board of Trustees lowered the universitys targeted growth rate from 5 percent to 2.25 percent annually. Although it seems like a small difference, by 2019 the percentage adjustment will translate into 2,298 fewer students than previously projected. It boils down to construction funding. FGCU didnt receive much the past few years, didnt receive much this year and doesnt expect to receive much in the next few years. We kept hoping, maybe hoping longer than we should have, that it would come, and it hasnt, said Steve Magiera, vice president for administrative services. And it doesnt look like its going to. There are 14,488 students on campus this fall, including 2,782 rst-year students. Thats just 0.8 percent more freshmen despite a record-setting 29.4 percent increase in applications. Ron Toll, FGCUs provost and vice president for academic affairs, said next years incoming freshman class will drop by 150 students despite the projected 2.25 per cent enrollment growth. How is that possible? FGCU plans to keep this years freshmen and sophomores on campus. It had been losing one in four students after their freshman year, but a concerted effort to boost retention rates means more students will be sticking around for the full four years. About 77.7 percent of last years freshmen returned, topping the 76.4 percent rate from a year ago. FGCU hasnt opened a new academic building since January 2012. Marieb Hall was scheduled to open in August 2011, but the state did not provide funding for furniture and equipment, so FGCU shuttered the facility until it could nd money to outt the building. No academic buildings or residence halls will be built over the next few years. Reining in growth at the university, however, will have an impact off campus as well. Trustee chairwoman Robbie Roepstorff said residential and business developments in south Lee County are contingent on FGCUs continued emergence as an economic catalyst. Immediately south of campus, Miromar Development is planning to construct twoand four-bedroom apartments for 1,400 students, an off-campus housing development that has the universitys blessing. Weve got a lot of development going around us, and if we stop bringing students in, were going to have a bunch of people mad at us, Roepstorff said. The lack of construction funds has led to larger class sizes. In fall 2003, the average undergraduate class size was 24 students; it was 35 students in 2013, matching the statewide average. Toll doesnt expect FGCUs average to creep above 37 students. Offering more online courses and classes Fridays and Saturdays has allowed the univer sity to continue building enrollment without building new facilities. Sophomore Taylor Graham, 19, said shes noticed larger class sizes in her medical-related courses. Although the universitys reputation and notoriety rose because of the schools rapid growth, Graham isnt sure getting bigger at this point means getting better. If we have too many people, there wont be enough classroom space, said Graham, of Tampa. You could build more, but that would destroy the environment this school is known for. The university will go for better rather than bigger. This years freshmen had an average ACT score of 23.1 and SAT of 1569, compared with 21.9 and 1529 a year ago, respectively. We can get a better prepared student when they come in the door, Magiera said. That will translate into higher retention rates, and thus higher graduation rates, he said. Because Florida uses both numbers in calculating perfor mance-based funding, FGCU stands to gain nancially by admitting brighter students, not simply more students. Access has been a staple of FGCU since day one, and its a point of pride for President Wilson Bradshaw. As the university has expanded its reach, a smaller percentage of students are local. In fact, 50.4 percent of students last fall were from outside Southwest Florida. More competition for limited seats allows admissions ofcers to be more selective, and trustee Russell Priddy said area parents and students should be aware of that. He offered simple advice for gaining admission to FGCU. Work a little harder in high school and it wont be an issue, Priddy said.FGCU slices enrollment projectionsBy DAVE BREITENSTEINFORT MYERS NEWS-PRESS SUN FILE PHOTOVisiting Florida Gulf Coast University, local high school students listen to their tour guide. rfrnftb rfntffbbt tfnnft ffff rrbbb t rtb rffnntb 50474801 rf nrfrrntbfbnbbrbrtrbfbrtbtbttt fbtttttt ttttt ftttt 50473036

After the polls closed late Thursday, many Scots settled in to stay up all night in homes and bars, awaiting the result that could change their lives, shake financial markets worldwide and boost other independence movements from Flanders to Catalonia to Quebec. A nationwide count began immediately at 32 regional centers across Scotland.

Four drones called Coyotes shaped like thin missiles with retractable wings were launched into the hurricane this week, even as Edouard had 115 mph winds far out in the Atlantic. The drones collected data from parts of the storm that were too low for a hurricane hunter plane to safely y in. Researchers had been hoping for this type of hurricane to test the drones durability. The stars lined up, said Joe Cione of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Hurricane Research Division in Miami. It was strong, we knew where it was going, we had a deploy ment point where we could get in and out easily.

But terrorism experts on Friday questioned whether the ruthless movement had the capacity or inclination to sustain a terror campaign so far from the Middle East. Police said they thwarted a plot to carry out beheadings in Australia by Islamic State group supporters when they raided more than a dozen properties across Sydney on Thursday. Two of the 15 suspects detained by police were charged in court on Thursday, ofcials said. Nine others were freed before the day was over. Some terrorism experts saw the plot as a potential shift in Islamic States focus from creating an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East. Others, including Professor of International Relations and Security Studies at Murdoch University, Samuel Makinda, said it is more likely a symptom of policy confusion within a disparate group. If you have people coming in from different backgrounds from all these countries, when it comes to policymaking, theyre going to ght each other, theyre going to kill each other, Makinda said.Islamic State plot foiled in AustraliaBy ROD McGUIRKASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERFOILED | 4 WASHINGTON Its time for u vaccine again and while its important for the whole family, this year health ofcials have some different advice for different ages: Certain kids should opt for the ouchless nasal spray.

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, September 19, 2014 NATIONAL NEWS WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. Border Patrol will begin testing bodyworn cameras on agents next month, the head of its parent agency said Thursday, a step toward seeing if the technology should be used in the eld as the government seeks to blunt criticism about agents use of force. R. Gil Kerlikowske, Customs and Border Protection commissioner since March, said a variety of cameras will be tested beginning Oct. 1 at the Border Patrols training academy in Artesia, N.M. He didnt say when or even if cameras will be introduced to the roughly 21,000 agents in the eld. Putting these into place, as you know, is not only complicated, its also expensive, Kerlikowske said at a news conference. We want to make sure that we do this right. Kerlikowske, a former Seattle police chief, has moved more aggressively than his predecessors to address complaints that Customs and Border Protection is slow to investigate incidents of deadly force and alleged abuses by agents and inspectors, and that it lacks transparency. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Thursday that he gave Customs and Border Protection authority to investigate possible criminal misconduct by its agents and inspectors. Previously, another agency within Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigated such complaints before Customs and Border Protection could. Kerlikowske said the new authority was a great step forward and would result in a more timely and transparent process. The commissioner also announced the creation of the Integrity Advisory Panel headed by Karen Tandy, for mer head of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, and New York Police Commissioner William Bratton. The camera test is a rst step toward satisfying activists who have long demanded the technology as a way to keep a check on potential abuses. It is likely to meet resistance from the National Border Patrol Council, the union representing more than 17,000 agents, which has said cameras would be expensive and may cause agents to hesitate when their lives are threatened. Kerlikowske acknowledged Thursday that cameras raise a host of privacy issues about when they should be turned on and off and said their introduction must be negotiated with the agents union. Shawn Moran, a spokesman for the agents union, said the development came as no surprise after the White House said this week that requiring police ofcers to wear cameras was a potential solution for bridging mistrust between law enforcement and the public. We want to make sure these are used to back up agents, not to persecute them, Moran said Wednesday. If theyre used correctly by the agency, they will offer an independent account in use-of-force incidents or any type of incident. We do have concerns management would use them to look for administrative violations. The announcements came less than a week after Customs and Border Protections new inter nal affairs head Mark Morgan said an initial review of cases involving use of force and alleged misconduct by agents and inspectors since 2009 found 155 that merit further investigation.Border Patrol to test wearing cameras AP PHOTOCal Fire strike crews battle the King Fire in El Dorado County near Fresh Pond, Calif., on Wednesday.PLACERVILLE, Calif. (AP) A man has been charged with deliberately starting a Northern California wildre that has shown explosive growth and driven nearly 2,800 people from their homes, authorities said Thursday. Wayne Allen Huntsman, 37, was arrested late Wednesday in Placerville and booked into El Dorado County Jail, where he was being held on $10 million bail. Huntsman faces a forest-land arson charge, along with a special allegation of arson with aggravating factors because the blaze east of Sacramento put a dozen reghters in serious danger, forcing them to deploy their re shields. They all escaped unharmed. By Thursday morning, the re had burned through 111 square miles as winds surged to 25 mph and more than doubled its size overnight, according to Cal Fire. It was 5 percent contained. It closed part of a highway that runs to the Nevada state line near Lake Tahoe. District Attorney Vern Pierson declined to say what led investigators to Huntsman, who was scheduled to be arraigned Friday. He also would not comment on a possible motive in the case, saying the investigation was ongoing. Investigators were in contact with Hunstman before his arrest. Its something thats evolving at this point, Pierson said of the investigation. He did not know whether Huntsman had an attorney. Huntsmans sister, Tami Criswell, said she doubts her brother started the re, but if he did, it wasnt on purpose. He works odd jobs in construction and security, she said. Hes a really good guy, Criswell said. He would never do anything intentionally to hurt anybody. In 1997, Huntsman was convicted in Santa Cruz of three felonies including assault with a deadly weapon and car theft, according to the complaint. In 2003, he was convicted in Plumas County of receiving stolen property. The blaze, which started Saturday, has been fueled by heavy timber and grass that is extremely dry because of Californias third straight year of drought. It is costing $5 million a day to ght, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection ofcials said. It is extreme re behavior, said Michelle Eidam, a captain with the Sacramento re department who was helping with the blaze. All bets are off right now because this re is so volatile. Many of the 12,000 threatened homes were in Pollock Pines, 60 miles east of Sacramento. Though the re grew substantially late Wednesday and into the night, it burned mostly into wilderness land in the El Dorado National Forest away from the town, according to Cal Fire. Crews focused Thursday on clearing brush and building containment lines near threatened communities as they braced for more erratic winds. Fire ofcials said there were no reports of damaged or destroyed homes. Still, residents at an evacuation center said they were worried. Weve been doing a lot of praying, said Sally Dykstra, who lives in a home in the middle of the re area with her husband, Garry, 74, and her daughter, Stacie, 46.Man arrested in fast-growing California wildfire | NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFSTrooper ambush suspect added to most wanted listSCRANTON, Pa. (AP) Cpl. Bryon Dickson was an impeccable ofcer who put his family rst, friends and colleagues said Thursday at the slain state police troopers funeral, just hours before his suspected killer was added to the FBIs most wanted list. Dickson was no ordinary trooper, police Commissioner Frank Noonan told hundreds of mourners gathered at St. Peters Cathedral in Scranton. Dickson, 38, was gunned down late Friday outside his rural barracks in the Pocono Mountains. The days since have been a whirlwind fueled by stress and gallons of coffee, Noonan said. Police are still searching for 31-year-old Eric Frein, who is charged with killing Dickson and wounding another trooper in an ambush that authorities said was likely fueled by his hatred of law enforcement. Schools near the Blooming Grove barracks shut down a second day Thursday even as police said its likely law enforcement, not the public, would be the target of any further violence. Mourners attending Dicksons funeral Mass gathered in sorrow, disbelief and anger, the Rev. Thomas Muldowney said, but he asked them to focus on the positive impact that Dickson made during his life.Couple in Craigslist slaying sentenced to lifeSUNBURY, Pa. (AP) A newlywed couple whose Craigslist ad lured a stranger to his death were sentenced Thursday to life in prison without parole by a judge who said their permanent removal from society is appropriate. Neither 19-year-old Miranda Barbour nor her 22-year-old husband, Elytte, displayed emotion as they sat with their lawyers in the courtroom while some of the victims relatives described the grief and pain they have experience since the Nov. 11 murder. Even if they each serve 50 years, they still will not feel any guilt or sympathy, said Holly LaFerrara, the victims sister. They completely lack empathy. They have no conscience, no remorse and no moral compass. They lack the most basic element of humanity, she said. These are two fundamentally awed people who are rotten to the core. Elytte Barbour read a written apology in court but said he could not explain his participating in what he acknowledged was a senseless crime. It is not the person who I am, he said. Its not the person I want to be. Miranda Barbour didnt address the judge.Jury wont consider deaths in Ga. salmonella trialALBANY, Ga. (AP) Shirley Mae Almer died a few days before Christmas in 2008 at a Minnesota hospital where the 72-year-old woman was already weak with illness when she was fed peanut butter contaminated with salmonella. Nearly six years later, a federal jury is weighing criminal charges against the man who owned the peanut plant blamed for producing tainted food that sickened hundreds across the U.S. But after six weeks of trial testimony that included nearly 50 witnesses and an estimated 1,000 documents, jurors never heard that Almer or anybody else died after eating the companys peanut butter. The jury ended its rst full day of deliberations Thursday without a verdict in the trial of former Peanut Corporation of America owner Stewart Parnell and two others. Jurors were scheduled to continue Friday morning. Prosecutors say they made a calculated legal decision in keeping evidence of deaths off the table. Jeff Almer, whose mother was among nine people whose deaths were linked to the outbreak in 2008 and 2009, said he understands that. But he still worries jurors who sat through the long trial still dont grasp its full impact.Clinton: Turn female economic issues into movementWASHINGTON (AP) Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday that voters need to turn pay inequity and womens economic security into a political move ment in the November elections and beyond, pointing to an issue that could animate a future presidential campaign. Clinton, the Democratic former senator and rst lady who is considering another presidential bid, said policy issues like raising the minimum wage, equal pay for women and providing families with access to quality, affordable child care need to be prominent in the upcoming elections. When we can turn an issue into a political movement that demands people be responsive during the election season, it carries over, Clinton said. These issues have to be in the life blood of this election and in any election.Dog found in Oregon heading back to PennsylvaniaPORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Gidget is going back to Pennsylvania. A Jack Russell terrier that somehow ended up in Oregon more than four months after she went missing from her home near Philadelphia will soon be own back to the Keystone State. A microchip implanted in Gidget allowed workers at an animal shelter south of Portland to nd the dogs owner. PetLink, the company that manufactured the microchip, will pay for her return ight, said Deborah Wood, manager of Animal Services for Washington County. We have no idea how she came from Pennsylvania to Oregon, but we are thrilled that she will be going home safe and sound, Wood said.

According to Haabestad, the fancy food is made possible thanks to the generous state subsidies that even private Norwegian day care centers receive. WASHINGTON (AP) In a show of solidarity with Ukraine, President Barack Obama welcomed the new leader of the embattled former Soviet republic to the White House Thursday, but he stopped short of fullling his visitors urgent request for lethal aid to ght Russian-backed separatists. Earlier, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko renewed his call for American weaponry during an emotional address to a joint meeting of Congress, where his remarks were repeatedly interrupted by applause from lawmakers in both parties. While he expressed appreciation for the non-lethal assistance from the U.S., Poroshenko said it was not enough to quell the violence that has dogged eastern Ukraine. Blankets and night vision goggles are important, but one cannot win a war with a blanket, Poroshenko said before heading to the White House for his meeting with Obama. The White House did announce a new $46 million security package for Ukraines military that includes counter-mortar radar to detect incoming artillery re. The U.S. will also provide vehicles and patrol boats, body armor and heavy engineering equipment, while also giving $7 million to humanitarian organizations to assist people affected by the violence. Following his meeting with Obama, Poroshenko was more reserved in discussing his desire for lethal American military assistance. Asked by reporters whether he was disappointed to be leaving Washington without that commitment, Poroshenko said, I am satised with the level of our cooperation with the United States of America in the defense and security sector. I cannot say more, but I am satised. Beyond the specic aid announcements, Poroshenkos visit to Washington his rst since being elected in May was aimed at signaling to Russian President Vladimir Putin that the U.S. stands steadfastly with Ukraine and its desire to boost ties with the West. The people of the United States stand with the people of Ukraine, Obama declared as he sat side-by-side with Poroshenko in the Oval Ofce.US rebuffs Ukraine pleas for lethal aid ARCELIA, Mexico (AP) A woman says she saw Mexican soldiers shoot and kill her 15-year-old daughter after a confrontation with a suspected drug gang even though the teenager was lying wounded on the ground. Twenty others also were shot and killed in rural southern Mexico after they surrendered and were disarmed, the mother told The Associated Press. The Mexican government has maintained that all died during a erce shootout when soldiers were red on in the early morning of June 30. That version came into question because government troops suffered only one wounded, and physical evidence at the scene pointed toward more selective killings. The witness said the army red rst at the armed group holed up at the warehouse. She said one gunman died in the initial shootout, and another gang member and her daughter were wounded. The rest of the gunmen surrendered on the promise they would not be hurt, she said, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals. After the gang surrendered, the girl, Erika Gomez Gonzalez, lay face down in the ground, a bullet wound in her leg. Soldiers rolled her over while she was still alive and shot her more than half a dozen times in the chest, her mother said. Another suspected gang member was injured in the initial attack. A soldier stood the kid up and killed him, said the witness, who said she had gone to the warehouse the night before to try to retrieve her daughter from the gang she had apparently joined. The soldiers interrogated the rest of the gang members in front of the warehouse, and then took them inside one-by-one, she said. From where she stood just outside the warehouse and in army custody, she heard gunshots and moans of the dying. Several days after the killings, AP reporters visited and took pictures of the warehouse and found little evidence of sustained ghting. There were few stray bullet marks and no shell casings. At least ve spots along the warehouses inside walls showed the same pattern: One or two closely placed bullet pocks, surrounded by a mass of spattered blood, giving the appearance that some of those killed had been standing against the wall and shot at about chest level. After the AP report, the state of Mexico prosecutors ofce released a statement saying there was no evidence at all of possible executions. The ofce said it found ballistic evidence of crossre with a proportionate interchange of gunshots.Witness: 21 killed by Mexico army had surrendered AP PHOTOIn this Monday photo, a photograph of 15-year-old Erika Gomez Gonzalez stands on an altar in her honor inside her mothers home in Arcelia, Mexico. rfn tbfrnrfntnn rfntbrORNEWERVEHICLES.LIMITEDPOWERTRAINWARRANTY.PLUSTAX rb ftnn SAVETHOUSANDS! nONLY12,100MIrfrntf nONLY4,000MILESrfn fnn rfb n nONLY26,000MILES ONLY22,000MILESrf tn rfn nr n nONLY26,000MILESrff nONLY28,000MILES WE'LLBEATANY DEALBY$500OR CHARLOTTECOUNTYSLOWESTPRICESONNEWCHEVYS&BUICKS PLUS!LOWESTPRICESONCERTIFIEDPRE-OWNED&GUARANTEEDFINANCING!

Page 4 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, September 19, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE last year hospitalizations were highest among that age group. About 55 percent of school-age children were vaccinated. Parents need to realize that u vaccine is crucial even for otherwise healthy children, said Dr. Paul Oft of the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia. At least 100 U.S. children died of u last year, only half of whom had lung conditions or other illnesses that put them at high risk and most of whom werent vaccinated. About half of pregnant women get vaccinated. The shot can be given during any trimester, and also protects the baby during the rst few months of life, said obstetrician Dr. Laura Riley of Massachusetts General Hospital.The vaccine supplyAbout 150 million doses are being shipped this year, with no signs of shortages or delays, Frieden said. About half will protect against four strains of inuenza instead of the usual three, he said, as U.S. manufacturers move toward vaccines with that extra bit of protection. CDC doesnt recommend one over the other.Which kind to chooseFor the rst time this year, the CDC says the ouchless FluMist nasal spray version is the preferred vaccine for healthy children ages 2 to 8, after research showed it works a little better for them. But dont wait if your doctor has only the shot just get them vaccinated, said Dr. William Schaffner of Vanderbilt University and the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases. FluMist also can be used by healthy people ages 2 through 49 who arent pregnant. If a squirt up the nose isnt for you, there are lots of other options: the regular shot; an egg-free shot for those allergic to eggs; a high-dose shot just for those 65 and older whose immune systems may need an extra boost; and a tiny-needle shot that just penetrates the skin. The Food and Drug Administration also recently approved a needle-free injector to deliver u vaccine, although its not clear how soon it will be widely available.New advice for seniorsThis year, the CDC is urging people 65 and older to get a new kind of pneumonia vaccine along with their u shot. Children already receive Pzers Prevnar-13 to prevent a kind of bacteria, called pneumococcus, that can cause pneumonia, meningitis and other infections. Now seniors need a onetime dose, too, Frieden said. Thats in addition to a one-time dose of another long-used pneumonia vaccine, called a poly saccharide vaccine. The caveat: The two pneumonia shots have to be given at least six months apart. If youve had neither so far, get the new kind rst along with this years u shot and come back later for the second pneumonia vaccine, advised Schaffner. Together, the two pneumonia shots are expected to cut seniors risk of pneumococcal infection by 45 percent, and the chance of severe disease by 75 percent, he said.Whats the costThe vaccine is covered by insurance and Medicare, usually without a copay. For the uninsured, it can cost about $30, although Schaffner advised checking public health clinics for free or reduced-cost shots.VACCINEFROM PAGE 1 On ISIS, I see no direct threat to Australia or to any other country at the moment except those in the Middle East, he added. ISIS refers to the al-Qaida splinter group leading Sunni militants in Iraq and Syria, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, which now calls itself simply Islamic State. The raids involving 800 federal and state police ofcers the largest in the countrys history came in response to intelligence that an Islamic State group leader in Syria was calling on Australian supporters to kill, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said. The raids sparked protests by hundreds of Muslims in the Sydney suburb of Lakemba on Thursday night, where speakers accused the government of exploiting public fear in a bid to get contentious counter terrorism laws through Parliament. Abbott said Friday that police were taking over security at Parliament House in Canberra, telling Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio that the building, government and govern ment people had been identied as targets. With national grand nals approaching in Rugby League and Australian Rules Football the countrys most popular sports police have said security will be stepped up at sports arenas and other public venues where people gather in large numbers. Greg Barton, a Monash University global ter rorism expert, said that Islamic State could be starting to direct its global followers to take the ght to their home communities in a bid to usurp al-Qaidas position as the leading global jihadist network. The movement could eventually mount attacks in Australia like the attack last year by militant group al-Shabaab gunmen on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, that claimed 67 lives, Barton said. It might also become capable of replicating in Australia the London public transport bombings of 2005 which killed four suicide bombers and 52 victims. More immediately, we dont think they have that capacity right now so our more immediate threats are things like the Woolwich killing which are very low-tech, said Barton, referring to the murder last year in the London suburb of Woolwich. Two extremists ran a soldier down in a car then stabbed and hacked him to death in public.FOILEDFROM PAGE 1 The issue created new fault lines for this falls elections for control of the Senate as well as the 2016 race for the White House. Intervention that destabilizes the Middle East is a mistake. And yet, here we are again, wading into a civil war, said Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., laying down a marker for Republican presidential primaries still more than a year distant. Sen. Mark Begich, in a difcult re-election campaign, said, I disagree with my president on the wisdom of having the U.S. military become involved. It is time for the Arab countries to step up and get over their regional differences and be more aggressive in the ght against terrorists, the Alaska Democrat said, drawing a quick rebuttal from Republican rival Dan Sullivan. Combining approval for aid to the rebels with funds to prevent a government shutdown into a single vote made it difcult to measure support for Obamas new military mission. Begich, for example, said he opposed arming the rebels, but voted for the bill. For a second straight day, the administration dispatched top-ranking ofcials to reassure lawmakers and the public that no U.S. ground combat operation was in the ofng. Obama made the same promise in an address to the nation eight days ago laying out his new policy and repeated it Thursday night. His new strategy includes increased airstrikes in Iraq and the possibility of strikes in Syria. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told one House committee that Obama is not going to order American combat ground forces into that area. Appearing before a different panel, Secretary of State John Kerry said the administration understands the danger of a slippery slope. The term was widely used a half-century ago as the United States slid ever deeper into a Vietnam war that eventually left more than 50,000 U.S. troops dead. Obamas general plan is to have U.S. troops train Syrian rebels at camps in Saudi Arabia, a process that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, said could take a year. The president already has said he will use existing authority to have the Pentagon deploy airstrikes against Islamic ghters in Syria as well as in Iraq.AIDFROM PAGE 1 It was the rst time that the drones have been dropped into a hurricane. The 3-foot-long, 7-pound devices stayed in the hurricane for up to an hour, transmitting temperature, pressure and wind observations before falling to the ocean. The drones are covered with sensors and have a small motor on them. They are maneuvered by computer software. They can be used only once. Scientists also drop canisters lled with electronics to transmit data as they fall to the ocean, but they remain airborne for only a few minutes. Cione said those devices deliver snapshots compared to the lengthy transmissions sent back by the drones. National Hurricane Center forecasters and other scientists will spend months analyzing the data transmitted by the drones. The preliminary results were potential game changers, Cione said. One drone followed air currents through the storm. Another drone launched into Edouards calm eye was directed into the intense eyewall in a maneuver that Cione likened to merging onto a busy highway. Theres no other device that can do that, he said by phone from Bermuda, where the drone-bearing hurricane hunter ights originated. It orbited the eyewall, and weve never measured anything like that. Some technical kinks with the communications systems need to be worked out and funding needs to be secured before the drones can become a regular part of the hurricane hunter operations. Cione hopes to secure funding to test a few more drones next year. NOAA got a handful of the drones this year to test during the peak of hurricane season, thanks to federal funding after Hurricane Sandy. On Thursday, Edouard weakened to a tropical storm as it moved into colder waters.DRONESFROM PAGE 1 NEW YORK (AP) Home Depot said that 56 million debit and credit cards are estimated to have been breached in a data theft between April and September at its stores in the U.S. and Canada. That makes it the second-largest breach for a retailer on record. The nations largest home improvement retailer, based in Atlanta, also conrmed Thursday that the malware used in the data breach has been eliminated. The retailer said there was no evidence that debit PIN numbers were compromised or that the breach affected stores in Mexico or customers who shopped online at Homedepot. com. It said it has also completed a major payment security project that provides enhanced encryption of customers payment data in the companys U.S. stores. The disclosure puts the data breach behind TJX Cos.s theft of 90 million records, disclosed in 2007 and ahead of Targets pre-Christmas 2013 breach which compromised 40 million credit and debit cards. Home Depot conrmed its sales-growth estimates for the scal year and said it expects to earn $4.54 per share in scal 2014, up 2 cents from its prior guidance. The companys scal 2014 outlook includes estimates for the cost to investigate the data breach, providing credit monitoring services to its customers, increasing call center stafng and paying legal and professional services. However, the prot guidance doesnt include potential yetto-be determined losses related to the breach. The company said its not yet able to estimate costs beyond those included in the guidance issued Thursday. Those costs could include liabilities related to payment card networks for reimbursements of credit card fraud and card reissuance costs. It could also include future civil litigation and governmental investigations and enforcement proceedings. We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and anxiety this has caused, and want to reassure them that they will not be liable, for fraudulent charges, said Frank Blake, chairman and CEO in a statement. From the time this investigation began, our guiding principal has been to put our customers rst, and we will continue to do so. The breach at Home Depot was rst reported on Sept. 2 by Brian Krebs of Krebs on Security, a website that focuses on cybersecurity. Krebs said multiple banks reported evidence that Home Depot stores may be the source of a massive new batch of stolen credit and debit cards that went on sale on the black market earlier Tuesday. Later that day, Home Depot said it was working with both banks and law enforcement to investigate unusual activity that would point to a hack. The next day it said that it had hired security rms Symantec and FishNet Security to help it investigate the possible hacking Unlike Targets breach, which resulted in falling sales as shoppers worried about security, Home Depots business appears to remain intact. The reason? Customers appear to be growing accustomed to breaches, following a string of them this past year, including Michaels, SuperValu and Neiman Marcus. Home Depot might have also beneted in the timing in another way the disclosure came in September, months after the spring season, which is the busiest time of year for home-improvement chains.Home Depot breach affected 56M debit, credit cards AP PHOTOPolice investigators work at a home at Guildford in suburban Sydney, Australia, after about 800 federal and state police ocers raided more than two dozen properties as part of an operation Thursday.

The U.S. Census Bureau released new gures Thursday that capture the lives of Floridians last year and how they changed from 2012. Overall, 2013 wasnt much different from 2012. Many factors such as the poverty rate, income inequality, the rate of residents without health insurance and the home vacancy rate remained unchanged. Florida was at or near the top of states with the nations highest concentrations of vacant homes, retail workers in the labor force and rates of residents without health insurance. Florida also was near the top in concentrations of residents who spoke Spanish in their homes. Here is what the one-year 2013 American Community Survey tells us about the residents of the Sunshine State. The survey only includes counties with populations greater than 65,000 residents.PovertyFloridas poverty rate in 2013 remained unchanged from the previous year at 17 percent. It was the nations 15th highest. The counties with the highest were Alachua, whose rate was inated by a concentration of nonworking university students, and Putnam. Clay and St. Johns counties had the lowest poverty rates.Labor forceMore than 1 in 5 Floridians worked in the education and health care industries, the largest concentration by industry-category in the state. The next highest was retail sales. Florida tied Arkansas with having the nations highest rate of retail workers at about 1 out of 7.5 employees in the labor force. By occupation, a third of the workforce was in management, business, sciences or arts jobs, placing Florida in the bottom 40 percent compared to other states. A fth of Florida workers were in service jobs. Florida trailed only Nevada, Hawaii and New Mexico in having the nations highest rate of service workers in its labor force. Citrus and Collier counties had the highest rates of service workers, while Seminole and Santa Rosa counties had the lowest.Health insuranceThe rate of Floridians without health insurance stayed the same in 2013 from the previous year 20 percent. Florida ranked behind only Texas and Nevada in having the highest rate of uninsured residents in the nation. The counties with the highest rates of the uninsured were Miami-Dade and Osceola counties; the ones with the lowest rates were Sumter and St. Johns counties.Income inequalityFloridas income inequality remained unchanged from the previ ous year, and the Sunshine State kept its status as the sixth most unequal place in the nation, trailing only the District of Columbia, New York, Connecticut, Mississippi and Louisiana. Monroe and Collier counties had the greatest inequality, while Sumter and Nassau had the smallest.Computer and internet accessAlmost three-quarters of Floridians had Internet access and almost 85 percent had a computer, placing it well in the middle of the pack of other states. The counties with the highest rates of broadband access were Seminole and Clay counties, while those with the lowest were Putnam and Highlands counties.HousingFlorida had one of the nations highest vacancy rates, with 1 out of 5 homes unoccupied; only Maine and Vermont had higher rates. But rates for those three states were inated by the large numbers of second-homes and vacation rentals. Because of that vacation ination, Monroe and Bay counties had the highest vacancy rates in Florida. Hillsborough and Santa Rosa counties had the lowest vacancy rates.EducationSlightly more than 27 percent of Floridians had a bachelors degree or higher in 2013, a slight increase over the previous year. Floridas ranking puts it in the second-lowest quintile of the 50 states. The counties with the highest rates of residents with a bachelors degree were Leon, St. Johns and Alachua counties. The lowest rates were in Putnam, Hernando and Highlands counties.Spanish speakingSlightly more than 1 in 5 Floridians spoke Spanish in their homes, a rate unchanged from the previous year. Only Texas, California, New Mexico and Nevada had higher rates of residents who spoke Spanish at home.Foreign bornClose to 1 in 5 Floridians were foreign born, a rate only sur passed by California, New York and New Jersey. Of Floridas foreign-born residents, more than half were naturalized, as of 2013, and almost three-quarters of them came from Latin America. Only New Mexico had a higher rate of its foreign-born from Latin America. The highest concentrations of foreign-born residents were in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. The lowest rates were in Columbia, Nassau and Sumter counties.Census: Floridians better educated in 2013 TALLAHASSEE (AP) If former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist wins his old job back as a Democrat, he could be in a position to seek political revenge against two Republicans whom he once counted as friends and now disdain him. Crist used to call himself a Jeb Bush Republican, and Bush campaigned to help Crist get elected gov ernor in 2006. Sen. Marco Rubio was House speaker when Crist was governor, so the two relied on each other to pass legislative priorities. Now, though, both men call Crist an opportunist whose political conver sion was more about ambition than ideology. And Rubio ultimately helped chase Crist from the party when he forced Crist out of the 2010 GOP Senate primary. Crist lost that election running as an independent. Crist, who is in a tight race with Gov. Rick Scott, would likely relish the opportunity to try to derail a Bush or Rubio campaign. It would be fun. It would be a great show, said Dan Smith, a University of Florida political science professor. Florida and its 29 electoral votes more than 10 percent of the 270 needed to win the White House are a coveted prize in presidential elections. Its the largest state that could go either way, as California and New York are solidly Democratic and Texas is solidly Republican. Of the last six presidential elections, Democrats and Republicans have each carried Florida three times, and in the last ve the candidate who won Florida became president. Some observers downplay the impact any sitting governor can have in a presidential election, though they can play some role by raising money, helping with campaign infrastructure and public appearances. For instance, Crist gave Sen. John McCain a big boost in his 2008 presidential bid when he endorsed him days before the primary. McCains Florida win helped him secure the nomination, though he ultimately lost to Barack Obama. Its a huge resource, said Brian Ballard, a lobbyist who served as McCains Florida nance chairman. It was certainly nice to have.2016 could bring a chance for revenge for Crist | STATE NEWS BRIEFSBusch Gardens removes props of decapitated heads Fla. sheriff: 6 children, 2 adults shot to deathTAMPA (AP) Busch Gardens removed some props from their Halloween attractions after people in Virginia complained about decapitated heads, the theme park said Thursday.

The metal is heading for its rst quarterly drop this year as the U.S. economy strengthens. Even as the central bank stuck with its pledge to hold borrowing costs near zero percent for a considerable time after asset purchases end, policymakers yesterday projected a steeper increase in its benchmark rate next year. (Seattle Times) Microsoft is notifying approximately 2,100 employ ees Thursday that theyre being laid off in the second round of layoffs since the company announced in July that it would be cutting 18,000 jobs. The cuts are spread across multiple business units and countries, a Microsoft spokeswoman said. The company declined to provide more details of the cuts. The jobs being cut Thursday are part of the 18,000 jobs that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in July that he would be eliminating over the next year. CHICAGO (Bloomberg) Dunkin Donuts, looking to phase out its signature foam cups, is testing recyclable-plastic versions to see if they can withstand temperatures of 200 degrees Fahrenheit while helping preserve the environment. Stores recently started using polypropylene hot-coffee cups in about 100 locations in New York, Vermont, Massachusetts and California, Scott Murphy, chief supply chain ofcer at Dunkin Brands Group Inc., parent of the business, said in a telephone interview. NEW YORK (AP) More encouraging economic news and friendly signals from the Federal Reserve cheered investors on Thursday, as the stock market climbed to another record high. The gains came a day after the Fed made clear that its in no hurry to raise a key bank lending rate, easing a major concern for the stock market. Eight of 10 industry groups in the Standard & Poors 500 index rose, led by nancial stocks. The question isnt Why are we up today? said Dan Veru, chief investment ofcer at Palisade Capital Partners in New York. Its Why arent we up a lot more? What youre seeing is the U.S. economy growing at a modest pace, not too hot and not too cold. Two of three major U.S. indexes nished at all-time highs: The S&P 500 index gained 9.79 points, or 0.5 percent, to 2,011.36, while the Dow surged 109.14 points, or 0.6 percent, to 17,265.99. It was the second straight day the blue-chip index has closed at a record. The Nasdaq composite, meanwhile climbed 31.24 points, or 0.7 percent, to 4,593.43, well below its dot-com era peak. The S&P Financials sector rose 1.1 percent. Bank prots could rise if short-term rates stay low while the rates they charge on longer-term loans creep higher. The day began with good news about the economy. Fewer Americans led rsttime claims for unemployment benets last week, according to the Labor Department. Weekly applications fell to 280,000, well below economists forecasts. The four-week average, a less-volatile measure, also dropped.Stocks rise to record highs C0 0

The disease sweeping West Africa has also touched Liberia, Guinea, Nigeria and Senegal and is believed to have sickened more than 5,300 people, the World Health Organization reported. In a sign the crisis is picking up steam, more than 700 of those cases were recorded in the last week for which data is available. Ebola is estimated to have killed more than 2,600 people, with most of the deaths in Liberia. But WHO has said that the ofcial toll is probably a gross underestimate and that most patients are at home, infecting others, when they should be in treatment centers. The U.N. Security Council was scheduled to discuss the crisis later Thursday. During the lockdown, which was set to begin at midnight Thursday and run through Sunday, volunteers will try to identify sick people reluctant or unable to seek treatment. They will also hand out 1.5 million bars of soap and deliver information on how to prevent Ebola. More than six months into the worlds largest Ebola outbreak, there are still affected areas without access to water or soap, WHO said. Authorities have said they expect to discover hundreds of new cases during the shutdown. Many of those infected have not sought treatment out of fear that hospitals are merely places people go to die. Others have been turned away by centers over whelmed with patients. Sierra Leones government said it has prepared screening and treatment centers to accept the expected inux of patients after the shutdown. As shoppers rushed to buy last-minute items, some merchants worried about how they would feed their own families after losing three days income. Much of Sierra Leones population lives on $2 a day or less, and making ends meet is a day-to-day struggle. If we do not sell here we cannot eat, said Isatu Sesay, a vegetable seller in the capital. We do not know how we will survive during the three-day shutdown. Several countries have promised aid. France announced Thursday it will set up a military hospital in Guinea in the coming days, while Britain said it will provide 500 more badly needed beds in Sierra Leone. The U.S. plans to send 3,000 military personnel to the region and build more than a dozen treatment centers in Liberia. An American general has arrived in the Liberian capital of Monrovia to set up a command center. With no proven treatment for Ebola, public health experts have kept the focus on isolating the sick, tracking down those they have come into contact with, and stopping the chain of transmission through travel restrictions, the cordoning off of entire communities and now Sierra Leones lockdown. Some patients have been given the blood of Ebola survivors in an experimental approach that some scientists think can help people ght off the virus.Sierra Leone to shut down for 3 days to slow Ebola AP PHOTOIn this photo taken Sunday, a sign reading Kill Ebola Before Ebola Kill You, on a gate forming part of the countrys Ebola awareness campaign in the city of Freetown, Sierra Leone. GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) Hamas does not want another war with Israel, the Islamic militant groups No. 2 leader said in an inter view Thursday, but he suggested more ghting is inevitable unless a deal is reached on ending seven years of IsraeliEgyptian border closures of Hamas-ruled Gaza. Such a deal remains elusive, in part because Hamas refuses to disarm a key Israeli condition for lifting the blockade. Hamas also remains locked in bitter disputes with its main Palestinian rival, the Fatah movement led by Westernbacked President Mahmoud Abbas, whom the international community views as a central guarantor of any new arrangement for Gaza. Three weeks after the end of the latest IsraelHamas war, the third in ve years, it is still unclear when Egyptian-mediated talks between Israel, Hamas and Abbas on Gazas future will be held. In the meantime, Israel says it has agreed to allow larger amounts of construction material into Gaza under United Nations supervision to begin reconstruction, though details are sketchy. Israel says tight supervision is needed to prevent Hamas from diverting cement and steel for military use. During 50 days of ghting, Israel launched thousands of airstrikes at what it said were Hamaslinked targets in Gaza, killing more than 2,100 Palestinians, the vast majority civilians, and destroying more than 18,000 homes, according to U.N. ofcials. Gaza-based militants, in turn, launched thousands of rockets and mortar shells, many intercepted by an anti-missile system. On the Israeli side, 66 soldiers and six civilians were killed. Israel said it destroyed Hamas network of attack tunnels under the GazaIsrael border and that the groups arsenal of about 10,000 rockets was reduced by two-thirds. The deputy leader of Hamas, Moussa Abu Marzouk, insisted Thursday that Hamas won the war, despite the apparent military setbacks. He said his groups popularity among Palestinians has increased and that it would likely defeat Abbas and his Fatah movement if elections were held today. Early this month, a survey conducted by a prominent West Bank pollster found a signicant increase in support for Hamas after the war. Abu Marzouk warned that failure to negotiate a new Gaza deal and a lifting of the blockade would lead to another war. We dont want that, and the Israelis, I guess, dont like to see that (war) again, he said in halting English, speaking in an ofce in a Gaza City high-rise overlooking the Mediterranean. He said the people of Gaza lived in a difcult situation before the war, as a result of the blockade. We cant put the Palestinians after the war in the same situation, he said. They (the Israelis) have to change their policy. Abu Marzouk has been based in Egypt in the past three years, but frequently visits Gaza. He is the deputy of Hamas top leader in exile, Khaled Mashaal.Hamas No. 2 says war a lesser option ONLY ONHD Seattle Wlnnlpag '\ }ij.72/56K77/53ey Ja MoirtnalS56/40 56/44 K81/51 .Toronto51/66as 59/50!1i Detroit ,yChkspo' =67/54 Niw York73/60 --; i 66/Siy San 'Fronciuo75/61 D"vort4h1n86/55 -,Cityr'-. 76/65Loa Andes81/66CDIIE AdaMaR r //4 e p 81/65 z. egPatoe'$ } L .( .,:82/67o ,f ,ChihuShw 'Houston87/62 \\ .1s1/71 1Mirrii i' MolKemy , 86/74 \ .. lss U/73 Js \YY 1' Ir ? r38 / ;1 of1 'I I 10 50 100 150 200 300 50077r --Grass 1Molds i ;,1 ,^e: owl I oabsent low modlsate high reryhigh -e eAccuWeather.com 'JU C7t4TITUENcy JAG SERTIZAT :i ,rrfill. 1. 1

ENGLEWOOD Every year, Lemon Bay High School seems to add a state-caliber girls swimmer. Last years graduating class had Jessica Collins. This years graduating class has defending Class 2A 200 individual medley state champion Sophie Cattermole. Those two, along with current junior Sarah Frantz and current sophomore Abby Shea, went to states together last season in two relays. The newest Manta Ray to add to the group is freshman Hunter Scott, who won the 200 freestyle at Lemon Bays rst complete dual meet of the season on Wednesday, a split with Port Charlotte. She also teamed up with Frantz, Shea and Cheyenne Guerra-Prats to win the 200 medley relay and 400 freestyle relay to help the Lemon Bay girls win 115-94. Scott, who trains year-round with Cattermole and Frantz for the Sarasota YMCA Sharks club, also placed second to Port Charlotte freshman Makenzie Miller in the 100 backstroke. I love it, its awesome, its great to be part of a high school swim team, Scott said.

VENICE When asked about his running back Langston Provitt, Venice High School coach John Peacock adroitly corrected the question. Provitt was a receiver he merely did a lot of things in the Indians offense. On paper, it would be easy to make that mistake. Listed as a receiver, Provitt leads Venice in rushing 278 yards, three touchdowns as a wildcat and slotback. Playing the wildcat has been a boon to Provitt, who mostly played running back in Pop Warner. He moved to receiver in deference to standout Terry Polk. But at wildcat, he can do what comes naturally.

The Bulldogs led 21-16 and semingly had control. But Charlotte coach Michelle Dill had some basic instructions for her team. I just told them to tie the score and then push for points, Dill said. The Tarpons rallied for a 25-17, 21-25, 25-17, 27-25 nondistrict victory. Tarpons senior Marisa Beisner had two of her match-high 17 kills in the final minutes of the fourth game. Charlotte (5-2) tied it at 24 and then 25 before scoring the last two points for the victory. DeSoto County (4-3) fought tooth and nail.

The R&A became the latest golf club to end years of male-only exclusivity on Thursday when its members voted overwhelmingly in favor of inviting women. The vote was effective immediately. I can confirm that The Royal & Ancient Golf of St. Andrews is now a mixed membership club, R&A secretary Peter Dawson said in a statement. Dawson said more than three-quarters of the clubs 2,500 members worldwide voted, with 85 percent in favor. It was the first time in the R&As 260-year history that members were allowed to vote by proxy at the annual business meeting. The members also voted to fast-track a significant number of women to join in the next few months.

The Port Charlotte High School graduate missed the 2013 cross country season at Florida Gulf Coast University because of a stress fracture in his lower leg. In his rst race of this season, the junior placed third among FGCUs men in the South Florida Invite 8,000-meter (8K) race. His time on a course he described as a bit muddy was 27 minutes, 12.72 seconds, helping the Eagles win the event. I wasnt sure exactly what I would do, said Adkinson, who competed regularly as a freshman. I wanted to do really well for my team. You dont worry about times, he said. You worry about bodies. You try to get the lower place. Adkinson said the stress fracture likely occurred as a result of his running while having shin splints. He said the injury took about 10 weeks to heal. I could not put any pressure on it, he said. I wasnt allowed to train. Once he was able to train, his recovery included use of the schools AlterG, an anti-gravity treadmill that allows a person to run while putting only a programmable percentage of his/ her body weight. Its a lot less impact on your legs, he said. Though FGCU does not have a track and eld team, he competed in 3K and 5K races during the spring. Among his showings was eighth place in the Bulls Invitational 5K during March. Adkinson also set a personal record in the 5K. I was ecstatic about that, said Adkinson, who was third overall in the Bonita Springs Rotary 5K in July. I felt like it would take longer to come back. He is part of a highly competitive squad this fall. The biggest factor is consistency, he said. Whoever places in the top three or four guys are the ones who go. He continues rehab exercises to reduce the likelihood of shin splits re-occurring and said his shins dont hurt. I honestly feel like Im in the best shape of my career, he said. He competes in Saturdays Mountain Dew Invite at the University of Florida.Know of an athlete with local ties competing in college?

The R&A has served the sport of golf well for 260 years and I am confident that the club will continue to do so in future with the support of all its members, both women and men. Augusta National, home of the Masters, decided two years ago to invite women to join. Unlike the R&A, Augusta National did not have a written policy that banned women. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore were the first female members. While the R&A members have access to the clubhouse behind the first tee at the Old Course, they belong to a club, not a golf course. The seven golf courses at St. Andrews are open to the public. The favorable vote was hailed from golf organizations, public officials and sponsors around the world. This is positive news for the sport, and I hope we will now see other golf clubs that still have outdated same-sex policies follow suit, said Helen Grant, Britains minister for sport. With golf in the next Olympics there is a huge opportunity for the sport to grow and this sends out the right inclusive message that golf is for everyone. The Royal & Ancient governs golf everywhere in the world except for the United States and Mexico. It is separate from The R&A, a business arm created 10 years ago to handle the Rules of Golf, organize the British Open and operate other business affairs. But while the R&A has female employees, the committees and board are populated by club members, so there had been no women in leadership roles governing the game or running championships. The R&A was coming under increasing pressure when The Open was held at all-male clubs, most recently Muirfield in 2013. Even some of its sponsors were getting uncomfortable with the centuries-old policies barring women. As a partner of the R&A and a long term international sponsor of golf, we welcome this news with open arms, said Giles Morgan, HSBCs global head of sponsorship and events.

The Sun /Friday, September 19, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 TAMPA Willie Taggart has heard enough about how South Florida was once ranked No. 2 in the country. The way the second-year coach sees it: If hes going to succeed in turning the schools struggling football team around, the Bulls will have to achieve something they couldnt while establishing themselves as one of the fastest growing programs in the country win a conference championship. I think thats very important in order for us to get where we want to go, Taggart said, looking ahead to Friday nights American Athletic Conference opener against another rebuilding team, Connecticut. You hear a lot about No. 2, No. 2, No. 2. Thats not fair to our guys right now to compare them to No. 2. Were not that team, the coach added. Were trying to build that foundation and get it back to that. USF (1-2) launched its program from scratch less than 20 years ago and soared as high as second in the Top 25 and Bowl Championship Series standings midway through the 2007 season. The Bulls, who left Conference USA for the Big East in 2005, have been in decline ever since. Despite being off to another slow start that includes losses to Maryland and North Carolina State, Taggart is optimistic about his young teams prospects in a very competitive AAC that has a different look following the departure of Louisville to the Atlantic Coast Conference and Rutgers to the Big Ten. Any one of these teams can win any given game, the USF coach said. The Bulls started 2-0 in league play a year ago, including a 13-10 victory over UConn, before closing their rst season under Taggart on a sixgame conference losing streak. Our football team is still fragile. We need to continue to nd as much success as we can and be as positive as we can, keep going in that direction, Taggart said. Its a direction UConn also wants to go under rst-year coach Bob Diaco. The Huskies (1-2) have sandwiched lopsided losses to BYU and Boise State around a narrow victory over Stony Brook.Building theme rules AAC opener COLLEGE FOOTBALL: South FloridaSouth Florida, UConn face long paths to regain relevance By FRED GOODALLASSOCIATED PRESS CONNECTICUT 12 AT SOUTH FLORIDA 12 8 p.m., Raymond James Stadium, Tampa TV: ESPN RADIO: 98.7 FM, 1010 AM SERIES: The Bulls lead the series 6-5 STORYLINES: After three consecutive helpings of a spread-style offense, the Bulls face a pro-style attack sputtering as much as their own. Like the Bulls, UConn (1-2) will try to establish a power run game (look for a lot of I-formation), but it averages 66.7 yards. Redshirt senior QB Chandler Whitmer (36-for-73, 464 yards, three TDs, two INTs), who threw two back-breaking picks in Saturdays 38-21 loss to Boise State, took over when opening-day starter Casey Cochran retired due to repeated concussions. Defensively, UConn is stout, ranking fourth in the American Athletic Conference (368.3 ypg). Every projected starter in its front seven is a fourthor fifth-year player. Joey Knight, Tampa Bay Times MANHATTAN, Kan. Nick Marshall threw two touchdown passes, Auburn forced three turnovers and the fthranked Tigers held on to beat mistake-prone No. 20 Kansas State 20-14 on Thursday. Marshall nished with 231 yards passing for the Tigers (3-0), who were forced to the air by a Wildcats defense that was bent on stopping the run. The nations sixth-ranked rushing attack had 130 yards on the ground, 200 less than its average. Not that it mattered the way Kansas State (2-1) squandered its chances. Jake Waters threw for 245 yards, but he also tossed two interceptions one in the Auburn end zone. The Wildcats also fumbled the ball away, and Jack Cantele missed three eld-goal attempts. Kansas State rallied in the closing minutes, scor ing on a run by Charles Jones out of the wildcat formation with 3:49 left. After the kickoff, Auburn soon faced third-and-9 at its own 37 with 2:06 left. Marshall dropped back and found Dhaquille Williams running wide open, and the 39-yard completion resulted in a rst down and effectively ended the game. Texas Tech coordinator resigns: Texas Tech defensive coordinator Matt Wallerstedt resigned for unspecified personal reasons. The 48-year-old Wallerstedt said in a statement issued by the university that he was stepping aside because I want the best for the Red Raider program, and this will allow them to go in a different direction on defense. Earlier Thursday, reports surfaced that he was dismissed after he was suspected of being under the influence of an unknown substance while at the teams football building Monday, according to ESPN. Mike Smith, who shared the coordinator title with Wallerstedt, will be in charge of the defense for the rest of the season. Around the nation: UCLA coach Jim Mora again refused to discuss who would start at quarter back for UCLA on Thursday. Starter Brett Hundley hurt his left elbow on Saturday against Texas, and Jerry Neuheisel came off the bench to throw the game-winning touchdown pass in a 20-17 win over the Longhorns. Mora has closed all practices and restricted media availability this week, presumably designed to keep Arizona State in the dark about whether Hundley will play. Connecticut and Missouri have agreed to a home-and-home football series, the first meetings between the programs. The schools announced that UConn will visit Columbia, Missouri on Sept. 19, 2015 and at Rentschler Field in East Hartford on Sept. 23, 2017. University of Arkansas running back Alex Collins was named the Maxwell Award Player of the Week.Auburn holds off Kansas State COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOKBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS RAY RICERay Rice is appealing his indefinite suspension from the NFL on the basis that he shouldnt be punished twice for the same incident. Rice was cut by Baltimore after video surfaced showing him punching his fiancee and knocking her out cold, but was initially suspended for only two games. Under the NFLs collective bargaining agreement, a hearing date must be set within 10 days of the appeal. But a speedy resolution might not be likely the players union is asking for a neutral arbitrator to determine what information about the incident was available to the NFL, and when.ADRIAN PETERSONThe Minnesota running back is on the exempt-com missioners permission list until a charge of reckless or negligent injury to a child in Texas is resolved. Peterson will make $11.75 million this season while he addresses allegations that he injured his 4-year-old son by spanking him with a wooden switch. His first court date is scheduled for Oct. 8. Petersons attorney, Rusty Hardin, has made it clear through his statements that he is preparing for the case to go to trial, which likely would not happen until next year. That means if he does not reach a plea bargain, Peterson could miss the season.RAY MCDONALDThe defensive end continues to practice and play for San Francisco while being investigated on suspicion of domestic violence. McDonald is out on $25,000 bail following his Aug. 31 arrest at his San Jose home. Police said the alleged victim had visible injuries. A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 29. Coach Jim Harbaugh said the 49ers would let the legal process play out before making a determination about McDonalds future: We have two principles at play here, and one is respect for due process, and were not going to flinch based on public speculation.GREG HARDYCarolinas Pro Bowl defensive end is on paid leave after being placed on the NFLs exempt-commissioners permission list. He was convicted July 15 of assault on a female and communicating threats after the victim said he threw her in the bathtub and onto a sofa covered with guns before threatening to kill her. He has appealed, putting his 60-day suspended jail sentence and 18 months of probation on hold, and a jury trial is set for Nov. 17. If acquitted, he could return to the field for the final month of the regular season. Hardy, the teams franchise player, will continue to make more than $775,588 per week.JONATHAN DWYERArizona quickly deactivated him after he was arrested Wednesday and accused of breaking his wifes nose after she refused his sexual advances and punching her in the face the next day. Dwyer spent the night in jail and was released on $25,000 bail ahead of court hearings next week. When asked as he left court if he will play football again, he said, I will. The Cardinals placed him on the reserve/non-football list, and police said Dwyer had been sending suicidal text messages to his wife since the start of training camp. Dwyer is on a one-year, $730,000 contract with Arizona.WHATS NEXTThe legal system doesnt work on the NFLs schedule. The players facing child abuse or domestic violence allegations might wait a long time for their cases to play out in the courtroom. A look at whats next in each case by The Associated Press: JACKSONVILLE Jacksonville receiver Marqise Lee will not play in Sundays home opener against Indianapolis. The team ruled Lee out Thursday, a day after he left practice with tightness in his right hamstring. My main focus is getting it right, Lee said. The hamstring can linger. If you try to continue to try to come back, come back, come back when youre feeling 85, 90 (percent), youre still going to have issues. Lee also left practice last week with hamstring tightness, but played in Sundays 41-10 loss at Washington. A second-round draft pick from USC, Lee has eight receptions for 73 yards. Cardinals stunned by Dwyers arrest: Arizona coach Bruce Arians said domestic violence is a worldwide problem and should be addressed everywhere, not just in the NFL. If this bad scar on the NFL, as you want to say right now, makes the rest of the world aware of whats going on, he said, its damn good. Arians spoke to a mob of reporters after practice, a day after running back Jonathan Dwyer was taken into custody at the Cardinals practice facility on domestic violence charges. Arians said Dwyer expressed shock at the arrest and insisted he was innocent. Jets Vick says Goodell doing great job: New York Jets quarterback Michael Vick said Commissioner Roger Goodell is doing a great job while the NFL deals with several off-field issues. Vick said that some situations are more complicated than others, adding that the right decision isnt going to be made immediately every time. The backup quarterback said Goodell needs to be given a chance to get it right. Goodell, the league and its teams have come under heavy criticism over how they are dealing with players facing domestic violence allegations. Vikings release receiver: Minnesota released wide receiver Jerome Simpson following the revelation of misdemeanor charges of driving on a limited drivers license, possession of marijuana in a motor vehicle, and having an open bottle in a motor vehicle for Simpson from a July citation. Police in Bloomington, Minnesota, confirmed the charges. He has a Nov. 3 arraignment in Hennepin County court, but with Simpson already serving a three-game suspension for violating the leagues substance abuse policy, the Vikings didnt wait. Around the league: Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles showed up for practice, albeit in a limited capacity, despite a high ankle sprain sustained Sunday. Chiefs coach Andy Reid has not said whether theres a chance Charles will be available for Sundays game in Miami. DeSean Jackson was unable to practice as he continues to recover from a sprained left shoulder while Washington prepares to face Jacksons former team, Philadelphia. Buffalo starting receiver Robert Woods was held out of practice, a day after hurting his ankle. Woods told The Associated Press he is confident he will play Sunday against San Diego.

SPONSOR WATCH: PepsiCo Inc.s CEO Indra Nooyi made a doubleedged statement on the NFLs problems handling domestic violence, calling some players behavior repugnant but saying that Commissioner Roger Goodell is a man of integrity. VICKS VIEW: New York Jets quarterback Michael Vick, who was reinstated to play after serving time in prison for his role in a dog fighting ring, believes the NFL commissioner is doing a great job managing the leagues crisis over domestic violence allegations. Some situations are more complicated than others, Vick said. Associated Press BUCCANEERS AT STEELERSWHO: Tampa Bay (0-3) at PIttsburgh (1-1) WHEN: Sept. 28, 1 p.m. WHERE: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh TV: FOX RADIO: TBDFalcons shred hapless BucsBy PAUL NEWBERRYASSOCIATED PRESSATLANTA Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and high-stepping Devin Hester led the Atlanta Falcons to one of the biggest wins in franchise history. Ryan threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns, Jones hauled in nine passes for 161 yards and a couple of scores, and Hester set an NFL record with his 20th return for a touchdown as the Falcons routed hapless Tampa Bay 56-14 on Thursday night. The Falcons (2-1) led 35-0 before the Buccaneers (0-3) picked up a rst down. Ryan and the other offensive starters left the game after Steven Jacksons 3-yard touchdown run made it 49-0 before the midway point of the third quarter. Atlanta built a stunning 56-0 lead. Tampa Bay scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to avoid the worst loss in franchise history. Hester ran back a punt 62 yards down the left side midway through the second quarter to give the Falcons a seven-touchdown lead. He has 14 career punt return touchdowns, ve scores on kickoffs and one on a fumble return. The previous record was held by Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, a former Falcon who was working the game as a television analyst. Sanders was on the video board smiling and raising his arms as the public address announcer told the Georgia Dome crowd about Hesters achievement. The Falcons tied a team record for largest halftime lead at 35 points. They were up 42-7 against Tampa Bay on Jan. 1, 2012. Hester, who spent the rst eight years of his career with the Chicago Bears before signing as a free agent with Atlanta, left the game with cramps late in the second quarter but returned in the third.

He also lost one tooth and had four others damaged but he said he expects to begin his regular offseason program in December.

Jeter exits his way: On the first day of the final regular-season homestand for New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter, Gatorade began running a 90-second advertisement showing Jeter walking around the Bronx neighborhood outside Yankee Stadium. Shot in black and white, the ad is accompanied by Frank Sinatras recording of My Way. Ive always liked the song. I thought it was fitting, he said. Im happy we were able to use it. The ad was created by TBWA/Chiat/ Day. Jeter said it took about 30 minutes to record him interacting with surprised fans. Ex-Rangers manager apologizes for breaking trust: Former Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington apologized and said he is embarrassed for breaking the trust of his wife of 42 years. I made a mistake and Im embarrassed more than Ive ever been in my life, Washington said. I was not true to my wife, after 42 years. I broke our trust. Im here today to own that mistake and to apologize to her, and to those I disappointed, and those who have trusted in me, and I let them down. Washington never said what that mistake was during his 3 -minute statement, his first public comments since he resigned Sept. 5. Cub earns Branch Rickey Award: Chicago Cubs All-Star first baseman Anthony Rizzo is the winner of the 2014 Branch Rickey award in recognition of his community work with pediatric cancer patients.

Milwaukee is moving its top minor-league affiliation from Nashville starting next season. The Brewers this week also announced that they were extending agreements with Double-A Biloxi and Class-A Brevard County. Stanton says he is doing well MLB NOTEBOOKMarlin speaks one week after beaningBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MLB ROUNDUPJeter homers for YanksNEW YORK Derek Jeter began his nal homestand for the New York Yankees with one more stroll around the bases, hitting a home run Thursday in a 3-2 victory against Toronto. Jeter homered deep into the left-eld seats against R.A. Dickey in the sixth inning, earning a standing ovation from the crowd. After Jose Bautistas tying, two-run homer in the Toronto eighth, Chase Headley sent the winning run home in the ninth with a one-out grounder through the legs of rst baseman Adam Lind. Jeter, New Yorks 40-year-old captain, ended a 158 at-bat homerless streak with the drive, just the fourth home run of his 20th and nal major league season. The ball landed about 10 rows into the stands, and Jeter smiled widely as he circled the bases. He exchanged high-ves with teammates when he reached the dugout, but didnt come out for a curtain call. Obviously this year up until this point hasnt turned out how Id like to, but youve got to keep ghting. Youve got to keep battling, Jeter said. Its another game. Im trying not to think about it being the last homestand. We still have a week left. Were trying to win games, and Im going to go out there and play hard like Ive always done my entire career until were out of games. Pirates 3, Red Sox 2: Host Pittsburgh caught a break when Boston pinch-runner Jemile Weeks was hit by a batted ball in the ninth inning. The Pirates won their fourth in a row. They began the day 2 games ahead of Milwaukee for the second wild-card spot, and host the Brewers in a three-game series beginning tonight. Down 3-2, the Red Sox put runners at the corners with no outs in the ninth against Mark Melancon. Will Middlebrooks then hit a chopper down the line and ball struck the back of Weeks left leg as he made a dive back to third. Weeks was called out, and Melancon retired the last two batters for his 30th save in 34 opportunities. Nationals 6, Marlins 2: In Miami, Gio Gonzalez allowed two runs in seven innings, Bryce Harper had three hits, and Washington kept up its push for home-field advantage in the NL playoffs. Kevin Frandsen and Anthony Rendon each had two hits for Washington (88-64), which opened the night 1 games ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the race for the NLs best record. A Miami native, Gonzalez (9-10) allowed six hits, striking out five and walking none. Rangers 7, Athletics 2: Sonny Gray and host Oakland kept sliding, falling out of the top AL wild-card spot with a loss that gave Texas a three-game sweep. The latest loss to the team with the worst record in the majors dropped the As a half-game behind idle Kansas City for the first wild-spot slot. Oakland owned the best record in the big leagues as recently as Aug. 15. Texas roughed up Gray (13-9) for four runs in the first inning and won its season-best sixth in a row. Rockies 7, D-backs 6: In Denver, Wilin Rosario hit a two-out, two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth as Colorado rallied. Rosario finished with four hits to lift the Rockies into a fourth-place tie with Arizona in the NL West. Corey Dickerson led off the ninth with a single against Addison Reed (1-7). Two outs later Rosario, hit a towering drive into the seats in left to give the Rockies their third straight win.

(AP) Mike Krzyzewski said his side job as coach of U.S. national team does not give him an unfair advantage at Duke. Krzyzewski met with media Thursday for the rst time since leading the Americans to the gold medal at the Basketball World Cup in Spain. He red back at critics who have suggested he uses his connections to the U.S. team for self-serving reasons with the Blue Devils. He said any advantage gained is an advantage through accomplishment and adds that coaching the U.S. team cost him about 50 days during the college recruiting period. He acknowledged he and Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim, his assistant with the U.S. team, have a certain amount of notoriety because of their longevity, but added, what are we supposed to do, lose? ... The Chicago Bulls signed former Orlando Magic guard ETwaun Moore. The team didnt announce contract terms.

Speaking after the launch of the leagues new logo, Garber said he expects an agreement to acquire the team by the end of the season and once we get an ownership group in place, well sit down them.

FIFAs ethics investigator ordered football officials to return 65 luxury watches given as World Cup gifts or risk disciplinary action. The Brazilian federation distributed gift bags with the expensive watches at the pre-World Cup Congress, FIFA said in a statement. They were distributed to 28 executive committee members, an official with each of the 32 teams, and representa tives as well as members of the South American soccer confederation. The Brazilians obtained the watches from sponsor Parmigiani for $8,750 each. But after launching an investigation into the gifts in June, FIFA ethics committee investigators discovered the watches had a market value of 25,000 Swiss francs ($26,600). FIFAs ethics code says football officials cannot offer or accept gifts that have more than symbolic or trivial value.HORSE RACINGLimelight Beach wins Little Brown Jug: Limelight Beach won the Little Brown Jug at the Delaware County Fairgrounds in Delaware, Ohio, beating Lets Drink on It by 1 1/4 lengths in the second leg of the pacing Triple Crown.

Led by Andy Murray, Britain upset the Americans playing without the injured John Isner 3-1 last year in San Diego. The two sides were drawn to face each other again in the World Group opening round from March 6-8. Britain is the home team and has the choice of venue and surface. Murray was quoted as telling the Daily Mail website that he will play for Britain in the 2015 Davis Cup, regardless of the outcome of Scotlands referendum on independence. Earlier Thursday, he tweeted support for independence. the way in the second game to take the victory. Bethany Bonville had four of her team-high 13 kills as the visitors led by as much as six points. In the third game, the Tarpons regained their form and gradually took a lead, scoring eight straight points for a 15-7 advantage. Tori Hoff served five straight points for Charlotte, which controlled the game from then on. Both teams started evenly in the fourth game with the score tied four times until the Bulldogs took a 16-15 lead. They increased their lead to 21-16 before the Tarpons battled back for the victory. Hailey Whitehead added 12 kills for the Tarpons. Mykelli Taylor added 10 kills. Beisner had 20 digs and Kaylee Brannon had 31. Jessica Moore had 20 digs as did Jessie Valerius for the Tarpons Im pretty proud of the fact the girls are 6-2 now, Dill said. At the beginning of the season I had no idea how they would do. Kacey Steyer added five kills and Datasia Wallace had a solid all-around game for the Bulldogs. We made some unforced errors which hurt us, DeSoto County coach Laura White said. Were working on a few rotations and getting used to it. Bethany had a fine game again and Datasia did a good job passing the ball. The Tarpons and Bobcats will compete in a tournament at Riverdale on Saturday. Charlotte also plays at 7 p.m. Tuesday against Riverdale in a District 7A-11 home match. Charlotte is 1-2 in district action. DeSoto County will host Sebring in a District 5A-11 match at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, September 19, 2014 things for Venice, but the Indians can also run the ball with junior running back Malik Bryant and freshman quarterback Bryce Carpenter. Charlottes running game is similarly multi-dimensional. Junior Elijah Mack bulled his way to 297 rushing yards and four touchdowns in the spring game against Dunbar, but in the fall, the Tarpons have spread out the ball more. Mack leads the team with 163 yards and three touchdowns, but sophomore Maleek Williams is making his case at fullback as well. And that doesnt factor in outside threats such as Trystan Beasley or Trevor Laurent. The running games of both teams will go a long way toward deciding tonights affair. Theyre going to come right after you, Charlotte coach Binky Waldrop said. Its amazing. Theyre a power football team, but their rst three weeks, theyve lived off big plays. They have the power to do that. Bryant, a transfer from North Port, came on last week against Riverdale with 143 rushing yards and three touchdowns. But with Provitt occasionally lining up in the wildcat, the Tarpons cant afford to look at Bryant alone. Provitt had a big game against the Tarpons last season, scoring two touchdowns in Venices 41-14 win. He killed us last year, Waldrop said. I think hes one of the best football players in this area. Bryant is getting used to the Venice attack and learning to love Venices beefy offensive line. Hes starting to understand what were expecting from him offensively, Peacock said. Hopefully, we can build from that. Similarly, Charlotte can either go with Mack or Williams and thats just in the fullback spot. Mack is enough to bring back bad memories for Peacock. Ive only seen two games of lm on him, he reminds me of the guy who went to Indiana (Clyde Newton), Peacock said. He runs hard, hes a big kid. But Mack is only part of the picture, alternating time with Williams, who might be the fastest Tarpon. I feel like (Mack) will wear a team down, Williams said. Then Ill come in and use my speed. After Williams ran for 69 yards and a touchdown against Barron Collier two weeks ago, Waldrop wants to get him into the ow early as well. Were going to have to play very smart, Peacock said. Our defensive line has a tough challenge in front of them.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comRIVALSFROM PAGE 1 | TONIGHTS GAMESBOOKER AT DESOTO COUNTYWhen: 7 p.m. Where: Bulldog Stadium, DeSoto County High School, Arcadia Records: Booker 2-1, 0-0 in District 5A-13; DeSoto County 2-0, 0-0. Last week: Booker lost to Berkeley Prep 22-12; DeSoto County defeated East Lee County 56-7. Talking points: Tornadoes are a grinding team: They havent scored more than 18 points in any game this season. Running back Jamal Benson led Booker with 102 yards and two touchdowns in their opener against Sarasota. Tornadoes were the District 5A-13 runner-up in 2013. DeSoto County has won its first two games but arguably hasnt been tested. Quarterback Reggie Jones showed signs of being the playmaker the Bulldogs wanted last week with 107 rushing yards and two touchdowns. DeWayne Hearns is dangerous if DeSoto County can get him the ball in space.PORT CHARLOTTE AT LELYWhen: 7:30 p.m. Where: Trojans Stadium, Lely High School, Naples Records: Lely 2-1; Port Charlotte 2-1. Last week: Lely had a bye; Port Charlotte defeated Mariner 43-6. Talking points: Tupac Isme has been a force on the ground for the Trojans, rushing for 301 yards and a score in the first two games. Lely QB Lik Estilien is a dual threat behind center, rushing for 108 yards and passing for 99 this season. Port Charlotte defeated Lely 28-10 last year at Pirates Cove. QB Anthony Stephens is still the lead Port Charlotte offensive threat. He leads the area with 275 rushing yards. Stephens top aerial threat is Paulsin Heitter, who has seven catches for 80 yards and a touchdown. Malik Vaccaro-Dixon is also one to watch as a Pirate target.LEMON BAY AT ISLAND COASTWhen: 7:30 p.m. Where: The Swamp, Island Coast High School, Cape Coral Records: Lemon Bay 2-1, 0-0 in District 5A-14; Island Coast 2-1, 0-0. Last week: Lemon Bay defeated LaBelle, 36-14. Island Coast lost to South Fort Myers, 31-0. Talking points: Anthony Marinola has emerged as the Mantas top running threat. His five rushing touchdowns lead the area and his 268 rushing yards are second-best. But Lemon Bays offensive line will need to open holes against the Gators defensive front for that to continue. Receiver Nic Mostyn leads the area with 12 receptions. Linebacker Brian McGill is one of the teams leaders on defense. Island Coast tailback Van Edwards is a major threat with 417 rushing yards and six touchdowns this season. But he only managed 12 carries for 17 yards against South Fort Myers. Linebacker D.J. Gayle leads the Gators defense with 29 tackles, including 15 solos.NORTH PORT AT PALMETTOWhen: 7:30 p.m. Where: Harllee Stadium, Palmetto High School, Palmetto Records: North Port 1-2, 0-0 in District 7A-10; Palmetto 0-3, 0-0. Last week: North Port defeated Palmetto Ridge, 19-18; Palmetto lost to Countryside, 15-14. Talking points: Bobcats have a variety of options running the ball with Zefen Bruno (166 yards, 2 TDs) and Matthew Laroche (67 yards, TD). Receiver Stantley Thomas might be the most consistent performer with 11 catches for and area-leading 307 yards and two touchdowns. Christian Van Der Veer has passed for 502 yards, completing 26 of 58. Palmettos 0-3 record might be deceiving as the Tigers have lost the three games by a combined six points. Athlete Quinton Washington will be a focal point of the North Port defense. He had 142 yards of total offense and scored two touchdowns against Countryside, including a 97-yard kickoff return. Quarterback Jack Allisons passing is the heart of the Tigers attack.VENICE AT CHARLOTTEWhen: 7:30 p.m. Where: Tarpon Stadium, Charlotte High School, Punta Gorda Records: Venice 3-0; Charlotte 2-0. Last week: Venice defeated SarasotaRiverview 35-7; Charlotte had a bye. Talking points: Venice leads the series 54-25-2 and is 9-6 since 2000. This season, freshman Bryce Carpenter has completed 21 of 32 passes for 229 yards and a touchdown. Langston Provitt has been a triple threat running (278 rushing yards, 3 TDs), receiving (7 catches, 90 yards) and throwing (a touchdown pass against Port Charlotte). Defensive tackles Alex Hoag and Jarrod Hewitt anchor the Indians defensive line. Receiver Trevor Laurent could be an impact player for Charlotte. He has five catches for 96 yards and is a threat in space. Charlotte quarterback Brennan Simms has completed 13 of 28 passes for 176 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Charlotte has won the last two meetings in the series at Tarpon Stadium.OTHER DISTRICT MATCHUPSDISTRICT 7A-10 Braden River at Lakewood Ranch: This is more than just a local rivalry winner here might have an inside edge on a playoff berth. DISTRICT 5A-13 Bayshore at Southeast: The two Bradenton schools have combined to open the 2014 season 0-6. Well, one of them has to win this week. DISTRICT 5A-14 Cape Coral at Cypress Lake: Cape Coral looks like it wants to make up for missing the playoffs last season. North Fort Myers at Mariner: Red Knights coach Earnest Graham earned his first win last week by topping Gulf Coast. Rob Shoreatmosphere is kinda different, but the cheering and everything is there. Obviously the Sharks are more competitive, but its the same intensity, the same teamwork and the commitment is all there. She didnt swim the 500 freestyle, but her goals for her freshman season are to make it to states and qualify for the Class 2A nals in that event and the 100 backstroke. She also hopes to grow closer to her teammates, something thats difcult when she trains with the Sharks everyday. I sometimes dont feel like Im part of the team as much. I know the freshmen that are in my classes, but I dont really know any of the upper classmen. Thats gonna make it harder when Im a senior and want to be a leader, Scott said. Ive been making an effort to try to meet new people at meets and try to meet them through Sarah and Sophie. Her performance against Port Charlotte helped the Manta Rays overcome the absence of Cattermole, who was in Alabama on a recruiting trip. Lemon Bay swimmers took the top place in the the rst six girls events of the meet, with Shea winning the 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle, and Frantz winning the 200 IM and 100 buttery. On the boys side, Lemon Bay took the top spot in just ve events and lost 113-107. Port Charlottes Steven Trombley won the 200 IM and 500 freestyle, and Chris McNabb won the 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle in the win. The Pirate boys are 4-0 in dual meets this season, and coach J.R. Whaley said its the most complete, deep and cohesive team hes had in his ve years at the helm. Weve been working the past few years to get our numbers up, this year we have decent numbers, the kids have been working in the offseason and are starting to bond and come together as a team, so theyre having a lot of fun, you can see it in their racing, he said. Its fun to watch.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@sun-herald.com. GirlsLEMON BAY 115, PORT CHARLOTTE 94200 medley relay: 1.

NORTH PORT Every time North Port High School senior Billy Castrovince looks at his iPhone, he sees the same image on his screen. It reads: Sub-15:40 Top 5 at districts Top 5 at regionals Top 10 at state Top 20 at nationals. One thing missing from that list of goals is to break the school record, but thats whats been on his mind this week heading into Saturdays North Port Invitational. The record, held by James Grantham, is 16:39, and Saturday might be Castrovinces best opportunity to break it. The North Port High School course, which will also be used for the Region 4A-2 meet, is known as one of the fastest in Southwest Florida. Castrovince ran a then-personal-best 16:59 at last years North Port Invitational, and later ran a 16:55 at last years prestate meet in Tallahassee. James Grantham holds like every record at this school, so hopefully I can take his name off the board, Castrovince said. This is my senior year and Im trying to get a running scholarship, so Im hyped about this season. In his rst two meets of the year, Castrovince placed 35th out of 248 runners at the Estero DDD Invitational and followed with a 10th-place nish at the Fort Myers Optimist Invitational. He also shaved nearly two minutes off his time from last years Warrior Running Camp 5k at this years version in August at Webber International University. Ive been getting all these condence boosters, and people have been telling me that I can (break the record), Castrovince said. Hes also extra motivated to break the record as he tries to earn a running scholarship to a school where he can pursue his other passion: cooking. He plans to major in culinary arts. I watch the Food Network all the time and I see all these chefs create this amazing food and it tastes so great when they just throw things together, Castrovince said. I like to make my own things, just put in differ ent ingredients and toss it up to make something different that no else has had before. I want to just be able to go to the grocery store, pick some things out and make something excellent. The schools hes been looking at include Liberty, Johnson & Wales and St. Leo universities. Former North Port coach Jim Simpson has also been recruiting him to run at Webber International.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@sun-herald.com.

Just three weeks shy of the grandopening festivities for the Blanchard House Museum of African American History and Cultures latest exhibit, and the building a living, breathing gem of Punta Gorda, Florida and national history is buzzing with activity. In the museums office, Scot Shively tweaks anti-slavery handbills for the exhibit on the nonprofits computer, as his wife, Jill, and museum director Martha Bireda Ph.D., pore over book notations and exhibit verbiage, eagerly spilling hints at what the public will learn upon stepping into the museum on Sept. 27. Each September, after being closed for the summer months, the museum debuts a new exhibit that represents years of planning and detailed research. This process requires an open mind and the patience to comb through a litany of historical texts, novels and articles in an attempt to tell the history often brushed over or left untouched in history classes and textbooks. This years exhibit, entitled Henceforth, and Forever Free: The Long Road to Emancipation, offers a chronological look at the abolishment of slavery, taking folks back to a time before the United States formally existed and bringing them through the often ignored historical moments that led to President Abraham Lincolns Emancipation Proclamation. Telling the story of The Long Road to Emancipation has been one of great study for Bireda and the Shively family, who have spent at least three years actively researching and planning the exhibit. We pride ourselves on doing untold and untaught history, Bireda said. Our focus is on the obscure. We start our research out at a different vantage point. On this day, the trio are still eagerly sharing the information they learned during the past nights research, adding more tidbits to the display of events that, while unknown to most Unveiling historyBy PAMELA STAIKPUNTA GORDA HERALD EDITORBlanchard House announces new exhibit Nicole NolesEDITORS CORNERnnoles@sun-herald.com Last Friday, my ance, Rob, and I enjoyed a Petty Hearts concert at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County. Petty Hearts is a tribute band that is a pretty close match to Tom Petty (a native Floridian) and the Heartbreakers. Rob has attended several Tom Petty concerts, and he was also impressed with how well the Petty Hearts nailed their performance. Port Charlotte got lucky. From what I understand, we werent a regularly scheduled stop, but someone elses concert fell through. Im hoping Petty Hearts (also a Florida band!) will come back for a second, and maybe longer, show in season. In the meantime, you can find them on Facebook and convince them yourself to give us a second chance. Eighties music may not be everyone elses thing, but thats the beauty of the Cultural Center of Charlotte County. Although they started off as a national model for learning in retirement, as our town has grown, so has the Cultural Centers offerings. This Saturday, the Cul-Cen will be overrun by pets, the people who love them, and plenty of vendors who cater to both. The Crazy 4 Paws Pet Expo will run from 9 a.m. To 3 p.m. at 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte. You wont need a ticket to get into this event, but you can bring your wellbehaved canines for fun contests. The Cultural Center also partners with Team Parkside to host a farmers market, which will be back in action Friday, Oct. 17. Hernandez Produce will be back, along with ProsperiTea, an organic tea, herb and spice booth, the kettle corn guy (its gluten free!) and other local goods. To sign up as a vendor, contact market manager Robert Nelson at 941-929-8305. Is there something youd like to see happen at the Cultural Center? Theyre open to ideas. Stop in and say hi, sign up for a class or two, and check out a book at the attached library while youre there. And maybe, if we cross our fingers, well be rocking out to another great eighties concert soon.Cultural Center caters to everyones interests PORT CHARLOTTEHERALD Friday, September 19, 2014 A weekly section of the Sun HERALD PHOTOS BY PAMELA STAIKABOVE AND LEFT: Plan a visit this year to the Blanchard House Museum of African-American History and Culture of Charlotte County, 409 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Punta Gorda, one of the stops on Floridas Black Heritage Trail.

Herald Page 6 Friday, September 19, 2014 Q Can stone be used as mulch around bushes in Florida? Will stone deter armadillos from digging around our pool area? Tracy, Port CharlotteA In some yards, stone mulch may be desirable but not for preventing armadillos. Stone mulch wont prevent these late evening and night time creatures from digging or nding insects for food. Armadillos will simply burrow under the stone layer into sand to reach food like earthworms, scorpions, spiders and snails. Remove brushpiles, stumps, rock piles and dense brush. Stone mulch is often added as a design, texture or color element for growing plants near a pool. It looks good with succulents, cacti, bromeliads, century plants and other tropicals. Heavily used walkways, beach-fronts, golf courses, marinas and docks often use stone mulch for the same reason. Homes built without rain gutters or homes built in re-prone areas use stone mulch more frequently. However, dont rule out using organic mulches in other yard areas. Stone mulch is expensive compared to wood, bark, or pine straw. And, stone mulches do not enhance the health of soil nor provide nutrients shrubs need to grow. Stone mulch will still need replenished over time. It also heats up faster then organic mulch. Frequent weed problems occur with stone mulch. Keep a 3-to-4-inch deep mulch layer of stone covering all bare soil. Id suggest capturing and re-locating the armadillos. Q After frequent rains, I see water sitting longer in ditches. Water is staying in bootson my bromeliads and on top of my rain barrel. How small a pool of water do mosquitoes need for breeding? Dolores, Port CharlotteA All 37 species of mosquitoes in Charlotte County require an aquatic habitat for breeding. This time of year swamps, marshes and land developments with storm water runoff into ditches, detention basins and storm sewers all contribute to breeding mosquitoes. Mosquitoes will breed in as little as a half-cup of water. Water collecting on outdoor furniture, puddles or plants could be eliminated. Removing potential breeding sites is one of the most effective means of controlling mosquitoes. From early evening to early morning keep doors and windows closed. Common breeding sites and control solutions include: Potted plants with a drain pan dont over water, and remove pan Drainage ditch or swale remove obstructing debris and let drain Low spots in yard plant as rain garden. Grow native plants Plugged roof gutter clean out debris regularly Bird bath change water frequently Top of rain barrel drill tiny holes into the lid (1/8 wide) Planter without drain holes remove plant or place on covered lanai Bromeliads ush to remove larvae in boots once a week Large leaves on grass remove or mow over Puddle on lanai use pool brush to disperse water Boats cover or turn upside down Toys and wheelbarrows remove or keep under cover Ornamental ponds and pools remove grass, leaves and collecting debris Ponds edge eliminate high grass Pool cover keep water from collecting, reduce debris weekly Doors, windows, pool cage repair and replace all screens Dense brush around home remove all underbrush and weeds.

Herald Page 8 Friday, September 19, 2014 Americans, helped draw an end to slavery in this country, As Bireda explained, most people think solely of President Abraham Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation, which he issued Jan. 1, 1863, ending slavery in the states still actively engaged in rebellion against the Union. but it was a long and arduous road to the Emancipation Proclamation, she said. This road begins with the four Rs of black self-agency, which takes down the misguided notion that freedom was given to the slaves, Bireda said. The first R, she said, stands for resistance and represents the day-to-day ways slaves bucked their restraints. Examples of this includes pretending to be ill, committing sabotage and arson, taking away their ability to perform labor through self-mutilation and suicide, and, for the most daring, stealing away for short lengths of time, such as a few days, week or even a month. The second, identified as runaways, references the black maroons, who were self-emancipated slaves that created their own societies in the secluded swamplands of the South, such as in the Carolinas, Virginia, Georgia, Louisiana and Florida. In some cases, entire generations of the maroons would exist without seeing a single white person, Bireda said, and their existence came as a great threat to slaveholders, not only because they undermined the slaveholders authority over slaves, but because they also helped plant the seed to other enslaved people that there was a way out of their bondage. The third R rebellions and revolts came as particularly troubling to the slaveholders, Bireda said. Word spread quickly from state to state of violent and often deadly uprisings taking place across the South, and the end result caused widespread fear to grip the South. One state in particular, Virginia, has quite a reaction to Nat Turners Rebellion in Southampton County, Virginia, in 1831, when rebel slaves reportedly killed up to 65 people, the largest number of fatalities inflicted by slaves at the time. In response, the Virgina General Assembly drafted a proposal for the gradual emancipation of slaves. The motion was eventually rejected, and, in its place, stronger slave laws were enacted. But the mere fact that Virginia would be the first state to consider gradual emancipation is interesting, explained Jill Shively, as, in 1619, it became the first colony to record the sale of slaves. Revolts like this, and many more, like the Panic of Insurrection in 1856, are part of the exhibit. In fact, museum visitors will learn about one of the most economically devastating slave rebellion, which took place right here in the Sunshine State. From 1835-38, hundreds of slaves in Florida fled their plantations, painted their faces and joined forces with the Seminoles in an effort to destroy the largest and most expensive sugar plantations on the eastern side of the state. The final R of black self-agency refugees/contraband relates to the mass escapes recorded at the start of the Civil War, when slaves escaped their bondage, making it to the Union lines and refusing to be re-enslaved. As these four Rs in self-agency took form, proving the slaves fought for their freedom, the movement toward ending slavery was furthered by the work of abolitionists. Throughout the exhibit, folks will learn about some of the key players behind the movement Arthur and Lewis Tappan, William Lloyd Garrison, Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Brown, David Walker and Frederick Douglass, to name a few as well as the evolution of the movement. As Jill Shively explained, the movement began as a religious mission to save slaveholders from the sin of slavery, but it began evolving into a political organization, as members blanketed the South with literature expounding anti-slavery messages. Not surprising, massive literature burnings and attacks on the abolitionists from house burnings and arrests to physical violence made their work more difficult. It was very dangerous to be an abolitionist, she said. Over time, the movement had to become more radical, evolving into a militarized unit, giving financial, material and physical support to violent rebellions. Abolitionists also began hitting the slave industry where it hurt most the pocketbooks of slaveholders as they boycotted industries supported by slavery, such as sugar and cotton. As the political environment shifted in the country, escalating to the point 11 states seceded from the Union to form the Confederacy, blood was shed and the Civil War raged. Soon, antislavery thoughts surfaced in the White House, and the idea of using emancipation as a weapon against the rebels took form. During the summer of 1862, Lincoln, a regular visitor to the War Departments telegraph room, where he could personally learn of news from the front lines while keeping a pulse on popular opinions, began his first draft of what would become the Emancipation Proclamation. Visitors to the museum will see this history brought to life, as the Shively family has constructed a real-to-life version of the desk Lincoln sat at, day after day, toiling with the words that would one day change the nation. A top hat sits on the corner of the desk, just beyond two pieces of paper, each printed with Lincolns penmanship, showcasing the presidents constant state of revision. Every day, he would write one or two lines and look out the window. He thought very carefully about every word, every line, Jill Shively said. This is meant to look like he just stepped away for a moment. A lot of research went into creating the desk, including the draping of a shawl around the desk chair and the creation of a battery as it might look during the 1860s. You always want to go into a museum and see information presented in 3D you want to see something visual, Jill Shively said. We have a lot of photos and verbiage, but we are trying to make it more visual. We want to make things look as realistic as we can on a shoe-string budget. Museum guests will also be treated to other visual highlights, such as a display featuring the outreach efforts of the abolitionists. In the middle of the exhibit sits a display case housing some of the texts used for research in the exhibit. The case displays Walkers Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World, Stowes Uncle Toms Cabin and Dred, Martin R. Blakes Blake or The Huts of America, Narrative of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, as well as Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet A Jacobs. The case also displays the likeness of two abolitionist coins one carried by men, one for women. The coins were carried by abolitionists as a way to identify one another when attending secret meetings, and they often served as a method of spreading information about the movement to abolish slavery. Looking around at their ongoing work-in-progress, the volunteers who have spent years researching and creating the exhibit together couldnt help but radiate excitement. At first I didnt know if we could top last years exhibit, but I think we did, Jill Shively said. Bireda agreed. We are just very excited about this, she said. Students, teachers and members of the community of all ages are encour aged to come out to the free grandopening event, which is scheduled from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 27 at the museum, 406 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Punta Gorda.

Herald Page 12 Friday, September 19, 2014 Karl and Aranca (Emma) Zoellner, like many Northerners, made monthly payments on their General Development lot from their home in Bergen County, N.J., then retired to Port Charlotte and built their home at 125 Francis Drive. Warm weather seemed like a good idea to other members of the family, and they soon followed the Zoellners down to sunny Port Charlotte. Daughter, Linda, son-in-law Brian Bredfeldt, and 8-month-old daughter, Nicole, moved here on Dec. 28, 1972 Brians birthday. The Bredfeldts spent a few years settling in. Brian worked for Punta Gorda Isles building houses, and for General Development as an estimator and doing computer work. Linda worked at Fawcett Memorial Hospital as a pharmacist. They gave birth to second daughter, Amy, on Jan. 1, 1977. She was the rst baby born in Charlotte County that year. By May, Karl had already passed away. By June, the Bredfeldts found a house to call their own at 555 Catherine Ave. The three bedroom house sheltered the family of four and various stray cats that were rescued off the streets and given a safe home. Brian continued in the construction industry, working for Jim Broady. Linda switched to the banking industry, starting at First National Bank in Punta Gorda, and sticking with them through various name changes such as First Florida, ending her banking career at the branch that is now a cardiologists ofce on Harbor Boulevard. She switched to General Development Utilities, where she worked until they folded in 1992. Meanwhile, Brian earned his contractors license in 1987 and switched to working for the county in 1992, rst in mosquito control, then in the building department, where he stayed until his retirement in 2010. Up until then, their house had all the usual minor upgrades, painting inside, enclosing the garage outside, watching neighbors come and go. But Lindas mom was getting up in years and couldnt care for her house anymore, and Brian put his license to good use by building an addition for Emma in 1998, enlarging their house to four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The Bredfeldts took Emma in and the house on Francis Drive was sold to another family. In 2002, oldest daughter Nicole got divorced and needed a place for her family. So two more generations of family moved back in to the home on Catherine Avenue everyone helping to take care of each other. Charley takes the neighborhood by stormWhen Hurricane Charley hit in 2004, four generations of family rode out the storm in the house, and walked outside to a silent, surreal, scene of destruction. Eleven trees were destroyed on their property. The lone palm tree had crashed into a front window, and there was some minor damage to the roof, door and awning. But the familys small citrus orchard, and the heart of the neighborhood, was destroyed. Everyone knew that the citrus bounty, and especially the huge ruby red grapefruit, were free for the taking. If you needed a lemon, you just grabbed one off their tree. Middle school children would frequently grab a quick snack on the way to and from school. There used to be a trail of citrus peels down the street (leading to the school), said Linda. And we loved it. But with citrus cancer devastating Florida trees, replanting was not an option. So a long trial and error period of landscaping followed. Nicole bought a house right outside the Parkside District, less than a mile away, in 2007. Emma died a few months later. Daughter Amy and her son, Noah, moved back in that same year, but eventually Amy bought a house within a block of Nicole, too. The house on Catherine Avenue was back to being a single-generation home. Today, the landscaping planted after Hurricane Charley is nally starting to take. A big stand of yellow bamboo guards the back of the house along with ornamental trees like royal poinciana that replaced the citrus. Colorful crepe myrtle bushes and ferns greet visitors in the front. The roof was replaced this year, and grandson, William, helped them repaint the exterior during summer break. Although the modest home wouldnt win any architectural awards, the care and upkeep of the Mackle Brothers home still makes it a welcome spot for weekly Sunday dinners with the extended family. After all, theres still three generations of Bredfeldts here and the home that housed them all is looking better than ever.Bredfeldts earn residential Beautification AwardCharlotte State Bank & Trust sponsors quarterly award in Parkside DistrictSTAFF REPORT PHOTO PROVIDEDJacqueline Benjamin from Charlotte State Bank & Trust presents Linda and Brian Bredfeldt with this quarters residential Parkside Beautication Award.

Friday, September 19, 2014 Herald Page 13 Do you remember when?The following are excerpts from the Daily Herald-News from Sept. 14, 1974, through Sept. 20, 1974:Paper does its bestThe Daily Herald-News, having served Charlotte County since 1893, is as much a xture in the community as it possibly can be.

With only approval or disapproval options, after more than an hours worth of speakers expressing their feelings, the council unanimously agreed to scratch the present ordinance and move toward a better solution.Presentation at St. Joseph HospitalMargaret Rippere, past president of St. Joseph Womens Auxiliary, presented Sister Mary Augustine, administrator of the hospital, with a check for $7,100.

I was turned away at the parking lot. That was fortunate for Tipton. The section of the building that the plane crashed into was where the ofces were located where she had worked the year before in a previous assignment.

USPS 743170 The Sun is published daily by Sun Coast Media Group, Inc., 23170 Harborview Road, Charlotte Harbor, FL 33980-2198. Last Thursday, I woke as if it were any other. An alarm sounded, I put my feet on the oor and gazed out the bedroom window to see clear, blue Florida skies. But it felt different. It felt solemn. Just like it has every Sept. 11 since 2001. Before heading off to work, I watched some video footage being broadcast from area and national remembrance ceremonies. Tears rolled down my cheeks as the bells rang and the names were read, just like they did when my high school anatomy class happened upon CNN on that morning we as a country will never forget. Throughout the work day, folks car ried themselves as if they were holding their breath, counting their blessings and remembering the lives shattered on that September day. Various organizations, government entities, businesses and schools hosted remembrance events of their own, enabling people to gather in reection of what transpired 13 years ago. The Sun and its weekly products covered many of these events, and one I was quite impressed with came from Charlotte High School. Here, students in the NJROTC program put on their uniforms for the rst full-dress day of the new school year and marched through the hallways to the Tarpon football eld. Together, they formed the image of 9/11, with the 11 depicting the twin towers. The photos, taken by photojournalist Tami Garcia, can be seen on page 12. While they are breathtaking, it struck me as absolutely amazing that these kids, roughly between the ages of 13 and 18, were infants and toddlers, not yet in formal K-12 school, when the terrorist attacks took place. Their memory of that day, if they even have one, is probably misty. But on this day of remembrance, they paid their respects to the families of the thousands of victims from the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks. Its actions like this that made going to bed Thursday night one of peace and thankfulness.Remembrance of 9/11 carries on Pamela Staik PGH EditorPamela Staik is the editor of the Punta Gorda Herald.

Friday, September 19, 2014 Herald Page 3 The Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce had quite a night on Sept. 13, when members gathered for the annual awards banquet at the Isles Yacht Club, 1780 W. Marion Ave., Punta Gorda. The event gave us the opportunity to kickoff our 10th anniversary celebra tions in style. The evening opened with an ensemble of theater students from Florida Gulf Coast University, Herald Court Centre, with the performance led by Laurie Coventry-Payne and Doug Coventry. They presented a chamber rendition of Oliver! Following a very motivational guest speech by Punta Gorda Police Chief Albert Butch Arenal, we handed over the rst Donna Heidenreich Award of the night to Paul and Sue Reeves. They took home the award for Volunteers of the Year, recognizing all of their support and service throughout the years. Jacqueline Benjamin of Charlotte State Bank & Trust and Linda Smith of A to Z Marketing were jointly named Diplomat of the Year, followed by Arenal, who received the Presidents Award for service to the community. The Members Choice award is one selected by the chamber membership, and it is based purely on the voters knowledge of the business without seeing the detailed submissions made by nominees. At the deadline, two nalists had achieved the top number of votes, so two awards were given out this year. Congratulations to both the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition and Deans South of the Border. The second half of the program brought the house down, showcasing a retrospective video celebrating Punta Gordas progress during the past 10 years. The video was created by Robert Whyte, choreographed by Casey Nemec of Studio Seven Center for Creative Studies and accompanied by someone hanging from a curtain (me). It was then time for outgoing board chairman Ron Monck of Centennial Bank to hand out the remaining awards. Taking the Small Business of the Year Award was Coppersh Books. The Nonprot Business of the Year Award went to the Friends of the Punta Gorda Library. The Large Business of the Year Award was handed to Four Points by Sheraton Punta Gorda Harborside.

Herald Page 8 Friday, September 19, 2014 asking if she was safe. Mom had passed away in June 6, 1999, ironically on D-Day, she said. Her friends were nurses, many of them from the Army, whom she had served with during the war. I dont know how they knew my number and how they were able to get a hold of me. One of them said, Im glad your mother is not here, because she would be worried sick about you. Tipton, who now serves as the executive director of the Visual Arts Center, followed in her parents footsteps by serving in the military. Her mother had been an Army nurse and father had fought as an infantryman in both World War II and Korea, receiving a battleeld commission. My mother was a seless, giving person and, above all else, she was a Christian woman, Tipton said. She had an incredible life. When she died, I mailed the family and her close friends a tribute I called Reections from the Heart. From her humble beginnings as a child growing up in Lebanon, Tennessee, Annie Mary Donnell Tipton probably had no idea that her career as an Army nurse would take her around the world, including a stint as a private duty nurse to First Lady Bess Truman, wife of Harry S. Truman, the 33rd president of the United States. Born on Feb. 10, 1914, Annie Mary, who everyone called Maizie, attended college in Maryville, Tennessee, and graduated from John Hopkins University with a bachelor of science degree in nursing in 1939. Maizies daughter, Tipton, said she recalled her mother telling her that her brothers sent her $1 each to help pay for her schooling. Her mothers roommate in college, Margie Swift, was blonde and vivacious, unlike Maizie, who was shy and reserved. She taught my mom how to kiss by practicing on their forearms, she said. They were the best of pals until the day she died. Prior to going to nursing school, Tipton said her mother taught in a one-room schoolhouse, but gave that up to pursue a career in nursing. She wanted to be a missionary nurse, but couldnt because she wasnt married. Seo she joined the Army in 1940. When World War II broke out after the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, Maizie, a rst lieutenant, boarded a troop ship and sailed from San Francisco Bay, landing in New Zealand. From there, she was transferred to the Fiji Islands, where she attended to Marines wounded from the ghting on Guadalcanal and Bougainville in the Solomon Islands. Because of her kindness, her patients at the Army hospital on the Fiji Islands penned a poem about her entitled Miss Nightingale of 43, which praised her unwavering duty to provide the best care for the wounded. When she is off duty, we miss her smile, It seems like days, but its just awhile, When she enters the door we always applaud, In comes Miss Donnell with a hand full of gauze. In 1944, Maizie was reassigned to India and then to Italy, where she served until the end of the war. She had been promoted to captain but met her future husband, Cecil Tipton, on a troopship bound for Trieste, Italy. The two were married on June 18, 1950. At that time, nurses were required to be single, so Maizie refused a promotion to major, leaving the Army to raise a family with her new husband. My mom had the distinction of serving in the European, China-Burma-India and Asiatic Theater of Operations during the war, Tipton said. We use to joke that she had more medals than Dad. Cecil Tipton was assigned with the occupational forces in Japan after the conict. When they could not have children, they adopted a boy and a girl who were half-American and half-Japanese. Returning to the U.S., they lived in Washington State, but left when she learned her children were being treated poorly by their classmates at school because of their Japanese ancestry. Kids would throw rocks at them, but they never told mom, Tipton said. She cried when she found out about it. Tipton said she was born when her father was stationed at the Presidio in San Francisco. Tragically, he passed away in 1972 when he was just 55, and Maizie decided to take her family to Hawaii, where she worked at Tripler Army Hospital. It was there she took care of Vietnamese infants who had been evacuated from South Vietnam when the country fell to the communists in April 1975. When she returned to the U.S. and reunited with a friend and fellow nurse, Alice Sanders, she worked at the Research Medical Center in Kansas City, Missouri. She took part in a new project, group nursing, and had the opportunity to serve as a private duty nurse to Truman and Clara Stover, wife of Russell Stover, owner of Russell Stover Candies. Mom was Alices alternate, and they were the night duty nurses, Tipton said. My mothers experience in the war and training at John Hopkins gave her the edge. Thats why she got the job. She would sometimes write letters using stationary that read From the desk of Harry S. Truman. Bess Truman also told my mother that when her daughter, Margaret, was an infant, she would put her in the bottom drawer of the night stand so she could be near her. When she died in 1982, my mother went to the funeral. Tipton said it was her mother who encouraged her to get involved with helping people. When they lived in Hawaii, through her mothers efforts, she assisted with counseling children stricken with muscular dystrophy. I was in high school at the time, she said. They even brought in sick children from Alaska. Tipton continued, She really cared for people. She went to sleep one night and never woke up. She died peacefully. There was no pain or suffering. She deserved that.SERVICEFROM PAGE 1 ON THE COVERHERALD PHOTO BY AL HEMINGWAY Retired U.S. Air Force Col.

Friday, September 19, 2014 Herald Page 13 Senior class representatives plan for final year at schoolBy SERGIO ALBARRACINCHS SENIORThe senior class of Charlotte High School has many things in store for it standardized testing, scholarships, college applications, job applications and, ultimately, graduation. Various senior events are planned throughout the year to help relieve the stress that the special, yet difcult, year can bring. Patrick Bluck is the senior class president and plays a large role in making everything happen. If something goes wrong, its the presidents fault, Bluck said. Bluck is responsible for aiding the Student Government Association in everything they do, including help the underclassmen in their endeavors. Activities such as homecoming and discussing the upcoming senior events are part of his responsibility, as is making sure this will be a great year for the seniors and underclassmen. We have a lot of great events, and were really excited, said Angelica Asperilla, the senior class vice president. She is thrilled for the year to come, looking forward to everything for the senior class. Theres better things to come.Junior class sponsor, representative ready for fun yearBy ALEXIS WHITECHS JUNIOREmily Klossner, a Charlotte High School Tarpon graduate who teaches history and the TV production elective, is now in her second year as the sponsor of the junior class. Its a big responsibility, and one she takes very seriously. Especially since part of the class biggest tasks is throwing the end-of-year prom for upperclassmen. Klossner recalls her own experiences at prom, and she takes a huge role in planning the annual event. Prom is very important, she said. Its a huge undertaking for the kids, their parents, the community and me. Its the kids who pull it all together. Although Klossner is a teacher and has a strong passion for it, she also has a passion for event planning. Ive always loved planning events, so I gured taking this position on would be great practice, she said. Through her sponsorship role, Klossner will be working closely with Marshall Dillon, the junior class representative/ president. He is excited to use his new position at the school to speak on behalf of his peers. Being honest, I ran for president to be heard, Dillon said. I am the voice of the junior people. Among his top priorities this fall are the homecoming festivities, like the annual powder puff football game, in which the female students play each other in ag football. Dillon, who participates in track and cross country as well, is not sure if he will run for president next year. but its a lot of fun and I love to be involved, he said. With Klossner, Dillon and the hard work and dedication of their many helpers, the junior class is set to have a fun year. Junior year is really important, Klossner said. Its the rst step of becoming a graduate and exciting things start to happen, and I like to be a part of the team that makes that happen and make their junior year special.Sophomore class prepared for challenges By JACQUELINE VAN DER MEULECHS JUNIORSusan Haynes, the sophomore class sponsor at Charlotte High School, is deeply involved with the 10th-graders and with the schools Student Government Association. Our job is to help organize for the parade and homecoming, Haynes said. Its also to help guide students, to raise money for the junior and senior prom and to help model what a business or government situation would be like. Luckily, Haynes doesnt take on these tasks alone. Evan Flores and Julie Dedrick, the sophomore class presidents, help delegate duties. I chose to join SGA because I wanted to make a difference, Flores said. I wanted to voice the sophomore class and be helpful to the school. Dedrick agreed. I like being involved in school activities, planning things, knowing whats going on, she said. With such responsibilities, students can rest assured their class representatives are well-qualied for the job. They have to campaign, be elected and then are enrolled in student government, Haynes said. Aside from sponsoring the sophomore class, Haynes also teaches biology at both the honors and regular level. Its an enjoyable experience, Haynes said. Its also neat when the ofcers end up being students that I had the year before.News from Charlotte High School PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG H H H TARPON PAGE PUNTA GORDA HERALD PHOTO BY SERGIO ALBARRACINAngelica Asperilla, senior class vice president at Charlotte High School, is one of many excited seniors.

Herald Page 14 Friday, September 19, 2014 Its hard to believe the midway point of the Pop Warner football season is already upon us. For the Charlotte Warriors Pop Warner football program, it hopes that second half goes much better than the rst. When youre a Division 1 program, you have to play the best. So far, the results have been less than stellar. The Pee Wee division teams have yet to win, while the Midgets have only won once so far. Only the Junior Midgets have proven to be competitive. At North Port on Sept. 13, the results pretty much followed that line. Bo Balcomb, football coordinator and Junior Midget head coach, said the Warriors are still in transition, and they have played some of the toughest teams to start its season. He hopes some easier competition will produce some victories. Were still hurting a little from the changeover of presidents, he said. Weve lost players due to injuries at the younger levels. Were just hoping to build on what weve started. The season has been particularly tough on the Junior Pee Wees and Pee Wees, which were already down in numbers and experience when the season began. While they have played hard, the squads, which have only 16 (the minimum you can have on a team) and 18 players, respectively, run out of gas in the second half. The Junior Pee Wees trailed 7-0 at halftime, but, without the depth and just 14 kids because of injuries, they were drubbed after halftime, losing 32-0. Stefonj Johnson, Julien Gilles, Keon Jones, Maurice Graham and Damien Escort scored for North Port. Coby Radulesco played great at quarter back for Charlotte. Troy McClary, Nequis Graham and C.J. Morris also shined for Charlotte. We did our best and looked way better than we have all season, said assistant coach Josh Cole. We stuck to the basics, and, today, they played with their hearts. We were giving our all and playing to the whistle. We just ran out of gas. The lack in numbers has much to do with a wait-and-see approach by parents in regards to the new regime. Some of the parents decided to sit back a year and see what the state of the program was, Balcomb said. Weve gotten positive feedback from them, and it looks like theyll come back next year. Balcomb also said the early part of the schedule seemed to be tougher with North Port, Cape Youth, Clewiston and Fort Myers on Charlottes itinerary. Down the stretch, Charlotte has some winnable games, hosting Sarasota, Riverdale and North Fort Myers before ending at Cypress Lake. Well be playing teams with records comparable to ours, so it looks like the second half will be more positive for these younger kids and thats great for their condence, Balcomb said. In other action, the Tiny-Mites of Charlotte and North Port had a great after noon duel, with North Port touchdowns by Wesley Bigelow, Edwin Feliciano and Chris Santos being equaled by Ike Perrys three and Jaquan McDaniels one. Charlottes Mitey-Mites were led by Jamari Johnson, Connor Trimm, Gilbert Baltudis, Scott Canizzaro and Dom Pipitone. However, North Port was too strong, as Alex Brooks-Perry, Malikhi Graham, Sekornay Thomas and Keion Singletary found the end zone, letting the Mustangs cruise to a 28-0 win. Play didn't start until noon because of a 5K run at the Mullen Center. Play was halted at 5 p.m. by lightning.Charlotte Pop Warner coaches, players look forward to easier games HERALD PHOTOS BY CHUCK BALLAROCharlotte Warrior Junior Pee Wee quarterback Coby Radulesco looks for a receiver during a Sept. 13 game against North Port.

The Charlotte High School junior varsity volleyball team cant say it didnt have a chance against Fort Myers High School in its home contest on Sept. 9. The Tarpons came back from an eightpoint decit in the rst game and had multiple chances to close out the second game against the Green Wave, only to be rebuffed on both occasions, leading to the Tarpons rst defeat of the season after four-straight wins. I dont think we played our best tonight, said Charlotte head coach Jill Damico. It seemed we all had an off game. We basically beat ourselves. We made more mistakes than the other team, and thats not how we usually play. Damico said the Tarpons struggled with passing and putting the ball down, as there were several double hits called on Charlotte (4-1) and many kills splashed into the net. Game one started close, but the Green Wave (5-2) was able to string together a 6-0 run to take a ve-point lead, stretching it to eight at 19-11 when Charlotte rallied. Sophomore Ashley Landry served the Tarpons back to within 20-18, but Fort Myers got back on track and nished them off at 25-20. The second game was a heartbreaker that was all but gift-wrapped for Charlotte after it came back from another hole to go on a huge run. Marissa Stack and others helped Charlotte take the lead and build it to as much as ve before nding themselves one point away from tying the match at 24-20. It wasnt meant to be. The Green Wave staved off six game points and nally took the lead at 27-26. Charlotte shook off a game point themselves, but Fort Myers took the match 29-27. We just didnt nish strong. A couple careless errors and it brings your momen tum down, Damico said. Fort Myers was a better team than we played before, but I dont think theyre better than us. Charlotte was led by Emily Vaughn with four kills. Freshman Abby Hayse had 16 digs, followed by Stack at a distant second with seven. Caitlin Giacalone had four assists. For these girls losing a match at the high-school level is an entirely new experience. Damico hopes its one the young squad doesnt feel too often in the future. They know they can beat that team the next time we play them and that they have to work harder, Damico said. They seemed a little uncertain. It felt like a Monday to them it was a little sluggish. She continued, Maybe the loss is good for them because now the girls know they have to step it up and will work harder.Charlotte volleyball falls to Green WaveBy Chuck BallaroSPORTS WRITER HERALD PHOTO BY CHUCK BALLAROCharlotte High School junior varsity volleyball player Marissa Stack digs the ball out of the air during a Sept. 9 match against Fort Myers High School.

Friday, September 19, 2014 Herald Page 15 The Charlotte High Tarpons had two opponents scheduled on Sept. 11. Mariner High School was no problem, as the 41-0 nal would indicate, but Mother Nature was a little bit tougher. The weather has been unkind to the JV Tarpons football team this season. She had forced their game against North Port High School to end with less than three quarters played. Then she canceled their game with Port Charlotte because of lightning. After an hour-and-a-half delay at the start of the game with Mariner, she played a trick on both teams. As the Tritons were lined up and within just a couple of seconds before kicking off, the weather horn blasted through the cloudy night, sending both teams back to the locker rooms. After another hour wait, the all-clear signal was sounded and the teams took the eld. Mariner may have been looking toward the skies hoping for more lightning as the Tarpons dominated the game from the very rst drive. A 7-play, 62-yard drive showcased the strength of the Tarpon ground game as they used three different backs to chew up the yardage. The nal 5 yards was covered by freshman Ny Harvey, giving the Tarpons a quick 7-0 lead. The Tarpons defense held Mariner on their rst possession, and Savorion Warren hit Travon McCleary for a 33-yard score less than 3 minutes later, putting the Tarpons at 13-0. The rest of the game was more like a clinic, with the Tarpons controlling both sides of the eld. The defense was outstanding as they held Mariner to a negative 1 yard on offense through the rst three possessions. Only a couple of missed tackles on a pass late in the half allowed Mariner to end the rst half with 2 yards rushing and 13 through the air. Back on offense, it was the same Warrento-McCleary combination for 32 yards, as well as another score midway in the second period. The halftime score was 27-0 after a long 10-play, 60-yard drive that saw the only pass in the drive. That pass was caught by Trevor Hohne in the corner of the end zone for a 5-yard score. The second half saw Brendan Toop, Tarpon head coach, clear out his massive bench, as the substitutes nished out the game. It was a good move, as Toop was able to rest his starters for the make-up game against Port Charlotte on Sept. 15. With less than 9 minutes left in the third quarter, Elijah Noel used his quick hands to pick off a deected pass and took it 22 yards to pay dirt and a 34-0 Charlotte lead. On the nal play of the third period, Mykal Scott toted the pigskin 18 yards to put the cherry on top of the offensive sundae for Charlotte. Alexander Villarreal kicked the nal extra point of the night, and the running clock in the fourth quarter ended the game nearly 4 hours after the scheduled kickoff. The Tarpon ground game chewed up 216 yards, with Andrew Grace leading the team with six carries for 60 yards. The line opened up a lot of holes, and it was easy to pick up yards tonight, he said. Sophomore Tresean McClary was second, clocking four carries and 52 yards. More importantly is the fact that every one of his runs was for at least 10 yards and a rst down. It was fun tonight, and now weve got to get ready for Port Charlotte on Monday, McClary said. Scott had 48 yards on four carries, and Harvey also had four carries for 31 yards. Warren ended the night with three touchdown strikes covering 70 yards. The guys were wide open, he said. I just had to throw the ball accurate and get it there on time. Now we get to play Port Charlotte, and Ive been playing against those guys since Pop Warner and Im ready. Toop was very happy with his teams performance. He said. We ran the ball incredibly well, and we had a couple of passes that worked for us. Were going to use this game to get ready for Port Charlotte and hopefully get another win. The fact that we were able to use our starters just for the rst half was great, so theyll be rested and ready for Port Charlotte.Tarpons beat Tritons and Mother Nature Steve Knapp Sports WriterSteve Knapp is a sports writer and photographer.
