AND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000 A county commissioner refuses to let you speak at a public meeting. Who are you going to call? A local sheriff refuses to give you access to public records. Who are you going to call? The city is willing to give you the public records you requested, but it wants to charge you an exorbitant amount of money for the privilege. Who are you going to call? In Florida, you call the Florida First Amendment Foundation. Just a single letter from the Florida First Amendment Foundation to a wayward politician can yield results. Ms. Sandy Matkivich has contacted the First Amendment Foundation expressing concerns regarding the city of West Palm Beachs failure to comply with her public records request. We respectfully suggest that the city of West Palm Beach expeditiously facilitate access to the public records requested by Ms. Matkivich. The continued delay in producing these records is unacceptable and unreasonable and is depriving Ms. Matkivich of her constitu tional right of access to what clearly are public records. The city of West Palm Beach did indeed provide Ms.Matkivich the information she requested, responding We are immediately providing we regret any inconvenience caused to Ms. Matkivich. Floridas First Amendment Foundation answers more than 150 hotline calls each month regarding open and transparent government in Florida. The First Amendment Foundation is considered the authority on Floridas open government laws and almost all Florida Legislators consult FAF when drafting a bill that will affect Floridas open records or Sunshine laws. They also train hundreds of people per year across the state of Florida, including government ofcials and employees, the media and the general public regarding the open government rules. The foundation is respected by all concerned. FAF participates in open government litigation throughout the state, either by joining important open government cases or ling friend of the court briefs. They are quite busy ling friend of the court briefs to help keep Floridas politicians open to public scrutiny. It has come to our attention that Ms. Barbara Jeffords made a public records request for information in the personnel le of the hospital authoritys executive director the board provided Ms. Jeffords with the rst two pages but excluded the third and fourth pages claiming the federal law exempts the law from disclosure. After restating the facts, the Jeffords letter from the First Amendment Foundation argued the law concluding the letter with, It is our position that your failure to disclose is founded on a misreading of the Federal Statute and is not grounded in law. After the letter from the First Amendment Foundation, the Hospital Authority paid an outside law rm for an opinion on whether the authority had violated the law. Strangely, the Hospital Authority did not disclose the contents to the public, indicating that the outside attorney likely agreed with the First Amendment Foundation. The First Amendment Foundation welcomes individual interest, inquiries and support. For more information, contact the foundation at Info@oridafaf.org or visit their website, www.oridafaf.org. Their hotline number is 800-337-3518. This crucial organization is voluntarily funded by most of the daily newspapers in the state, including this one. We do so, not because it helps our bottom line, but because strongly supporting open government is part of our long-term mission as community newspapers. This institution is a Florida treasure quietly, effectively helping Florida be a model of open government. David Dunn-Rankin is president and publisher of the Sun.

CHARLOTTE COUNTY School Board members have decided to hold off on teacher raises for this school year, angering local educators and other district employees. We bargained in good faith, and now this is a kick in the hip, said Bryan Bouton, president of the Charlotte Florida Education Association, a teachers union. Greg Griner, the school districts chief financial officer, said Charlotte is only getting $1.2 million more from the state in general education funding than last year, leaving officials worried about having enough money to fund teachers salary increases without neglecting other areas like support staff. Officials said theyd prefer to hold off and see if more money thats in flux would be available towards the middle of the school year. The boards vote late Tuesday night was 4-1 against immediate ratification of the CFEA contract, which would have increased teacher pay. The union represents the Charlotte teachers denied raises for nowBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITERTEACHERS | 2 A prayer before class SUN PHOTO BY MONICA AMAYAImagine School at North Port students met early Wednesday morning at the upper campus agpole, held hands and prayed, part of the annual See You at the Pole event held at schools across the area and nation.

Were right up against the wall on this, superintendent Doug Whittaker told board members. As several of you have indicated that this process just seemed rushed, and this summer out of (nearly) 1,100 (teachers), only 40 teachers voted on this contract. Because this cakes not done, it needs to go back in the oven. With many wearing red shirts in solidarity, teachers made their presence known at the board meeting. Board Vice Chairman Lee Swift drew applause from the crowd as the only one to vote against Whittakers recommendation to hold off on considering raises until the middle of the school year. Im a little bit surprised, Swift said. Normally, in the discussion process there would have been some type of alert that this is the direction you wanted to go. At issue is pay retroactive to July 1 for teachers close to the top of the pay scale who did not receive an increase last year, as well as a pay increase for all other teachers that would be effective Jan. 1. Teachers receive pay increases on a step schedule based on years of experience. During public comment, Meadow Park Elementary School teacher Valerie Reed spoke about priceless memories her career has given her, such as a for mer student telling her she became a teacher because of Reed. Those memories dont pay the bills, she said. I stand here with people behind me who still have not made up for the difference with cuts that have occurred over the last three years. I think people feel we cant make a difference anymore, she continued. We make a differ ence every day in the classroom. Its time for you to recognize that. School Board Chairman Ian Vincent said his problem was not the retroactive pay, which some highly paid teachers were due, but the automatic step raise. This is a full step raise. Its not a half a step, he said. It would cost up to $1 million over the next budget year. I think its irresponsible to spend every dollar that we have, and put it into teacher raises. He added another issue was equity in funding for support staff, whose union hasnt nished negotiating their own contract with the district. The issue that it would leave nothing for student support staff is one of the things that gives me the most heartburn, he said. But Bonnie Bistarkey, president of the Charlotte County Support Personnel Association, wasnt happy with the boards decision either. Im at a loss of words because you just put on the backs of support people the loss of the teachers raise, she said. I dont know where the trust is anymore. Renee Wiley, assistant CFEA president, said Trust is broken. Still, she says, shes the Pollyanna or eternal optimist of the group. I will go back to the table, and Ill drag my team with me, she said. Email: sbrokaw@sun-herald.comTEACHERSFROM PAGE 1We make a difference every day in the classroom. Its time for you to recognize that. Valerie Reed, Meadow Park Elementary School teacher according to Rob Ladue, Parks and Recreation project manager for Sarasota County. The county purchased the 2.92-acre property, which sits adjacent to the existing Snook Haven park off East Venice Avenue, in 2010 for $312,000, county documents show. The property also contains a single-family home built and used by the previous owners. Part of the phase two plans could call for razing the home and building restroom facilities on the property, but Ladue said county staff were still trying to decide if the home could be left standing and used for the public facilities. The second phase is expected to come back before commissioners some time in the future. But for now, county commissioners unanimously praised the rst phase of the project, saying that it would likely become universally popular among boaters and outdoor enthusiasts. Commissioner Charles Hines thinks the new park will draw such a crowd that a larger boat ramp was needed. As currently envisioned, the boat ramp has enough room for one boat to be launched or loaded at a time, and Hines was hoping for something to accommodate at least two boats at once. This is a great project and will provide great access, Hines said. I think this will be a very popular place. Snook Haven, which originally opened in 1948 as a shing camp, was purchased by the county in 2006 for $2.5 million to protect and maintain its cultural, historical and environmental assets, and increase public access to the waterfront. Along with a restaurant with outdoor, water front seating, the park offers live music events throughout the year and boat tours. Conceivably, the Snook Haven addition would work in concert with the forthcoming Senator Bob Johnsons Landing park, which is being built along the Myakka River and fronts U.S. 41. Bob Johnsons Landing was recently conrmed as being part of the coun tys rowing master plan, according to Ladue, who is working to get the park up and running not only for general public use, but as a training site for rowing squads, especially those teams competing in the 2017 World Cup event set for Nathan Benderson Park. The close proximity of the Snook Haven addition and the new park, combined with nearby Jelks and Sleeping Turtle preserves, will make new greenway for South County residents to access and utilize, according to Commissioner Christine Robinson. The Myakka River is an important asset for the county and also North Port residents, Robinson said. Increasing the ability of residents to access the Myakka improves our quality of life. At the same time, county ownership increases the environmental protection of this wild and scenic river. The county purchased the 7.1-acre park property that will become Bob Johnsons Landing on the Myakka River for $2 million through the Neighborhood Parkland Acquisition Program in 2009.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comEXPANDFROM PAGE 1SUP AT SIESTA NOT LIKELY Stand-up paddleboarding, also known as SUP, may not come to Siesta Beach after all. Opinion is split between those who favor or oppose reducing swim zones to accommodate nonmotorized watercraft, and the Parks Advisory and Recreation Council opposes reductions in swim space. Sarasota County has been considering allowing vendors to rent paddleboards at Siesta Public Beach. Based on the feedback, county staff will suggest commissioners turn to alternative paddle boarding locations, such as Causeway Park and Turtle Beach. Provided by ABC-7 Charlottes representative on a Florida Association of Counties consortium of 23 Gulf Coast counties to meet requirements of BPs settlement through the federal RESTORE Act. The group is also developing a state expenditure plan for economic and environmental recovery of the Gulf Coast. Constance invited William Hogarth, director of the University of South Floridas Florida Institute of Oceanography, to make a presentation to the County Commission this week. Some people like to think (the Deep Horizon spill) is over and done with, and we dont have to worry about it anymore but its not, Hogarth said. Things are still happening in the Gulf. A barrel of crude oil equates to 42 gallons. While 75 percent of the 4.9 million barrels spilled is accounted for either burned away, skimmed, chemically or naturally dispersed, evaporated or dissolved 25 percent of the residual oil remains unaccounted for, Hogarth said. He also noted how tar balls were still turning up along Florida Panhandle beaches. Various sh species have developed lesions and ulcers resulting from the spill. At Tuesdays meeting, Ho garth showed photos of a red snapper, southern hake and a tilesh with those lesions. No seafood with contamination was allowed to go onto the market, Hogarth said. The seafood you now see from the Gulf of Mexico is safe to eat. Scientists determined there was a drop in the number of younger sh in the wake of oil spill, Hogarth said. We hope its improving, he said. We still have two to three-year class missing from the red snapper population. A peer-reviewed study on the Proceeding of National Academy of Sciences (PNAC) website at www.pnas.org discovered that polycyclic armomatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from the spill affected the hearts of developing sh, especially pelagic species open sea species such as tuna, sailsh and marlins, dolphins, mackerels and kingsh, and cobia. Gulf pelagic species produce small, fragile buoyant embryos that develop relatively rapidly, the study stated. Both Hogarth and the PNAS study noted how impacts to Alaska sh species were apparent for decades after the Exxon Valdes spill in 1989. More than 4,000 offshore wells are now operating along the Gulf west from Alabama to Texas. The Deepwater Horizon well was drilled at a depth of 5,000 feet in the Gulf. Hogarth showed commissioners illustrations how oil companies are now drilling even deeper wells, ultra-deep wells at depths of 10,000 feet or more. While its expensive to drill, Hogarth said, more than 500 million barrels annually are pumped from the Gulf. And while no offshore drilling is now allowed off Florida, thats no reason to feel safe, according to Hogarth. It doesnt protect us, he said. With these deeper wells and loop currents in the Gulf, theyll have (oil) on our shores. Whether in his lifetime or not, Hogarth suggested, similar blowouts and spills should be anticipated.

The Sun /Thursday, September 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA A North Port man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for molesting his former girlfriends children, while they were living together in 2012. Taylor Joseph Boggs, 28, reached a deal with the State Attorneys Ofce Wednesday at the Charlotte County Justice Center, pleading guilty to two counts of lewd bat tery. He originally faced charges of capital sexual battery, which could have led to life in prison or the death penalty if he were to lose a trial. Boggs private attorney, Richard Ruhl, did not return calls after the plea deal, but Boggs mother, Sandra Moscato-Boggs, of North Port, said her son agreed to the terms rather than risk a far more serious sentence. Hes beside himself, Moscato-Boggs said. According to court documents, Boggs forced his then-girlfriends 6-year-old daughter to perform oral sex on him and have sex with him, and he inappropriately touched her 11-year-old daughter. The incidents happened while the childrens mother was in the shower on Halloween night in 2012. Boggs was arrested in April 2013, after the childrens mother noticed the younger daughter, who had since turned 7, making sexual hand gestures to her three siblings. The mother questioned all four of her children, and three girls said they had been touched inappropriately by Boggs. The mother contacted authorities, and detectives with the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce conducted child forensic interviews with all four children. Boggs was originally charged with three counts of capital sexual battery and one count of aggravated child abuse, but the SAO reduced the charges to get a deal. (The victims) were in agreement, SAO spokeswoman Samantha Syoen said. And the mother thought it was in the best interest of her children to not have to testify against the defendant, due to their young ages. The original charges also reected accusations that Boggs molested his then-girlfriends 4-year-old daughter with a pencil and once violently strangled her. Syoen said the only reason the charges were reduced was to avoid a trial. The victims mother could not be reached at her last listed phone number. Moscato-Boggs said the victims mother had her children lie that they had been touched in order to get Boggs arrested because she was angry at him. He was completely railroaded, Moscato-Boggs said. (She) set him up. Court documents show at least one of the children was able to identify a marking on Boggs penis. Per the deal, Boggs will have to register as a sex offender and undergo 15 years of sex offender probation following his prison term. He also has been or dered to pay more than $1,000 in court costs and fees. He cant have any contact with the victims, their mother, or any children under the age of 18. He is allowed, though, to have his own children ages 6, 7 and 8 visit him while hes incarcerated. Boggs, who has been held in the Charlotte County Jail for over a year, will be granted credit for time served. Boggs had been charged with six counts of possession of child pornography in 2009, but the charges were later dropped, according to court records.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comMan gets 15 years for molesting girlfriends kidsBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITER BOGGS | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFAllamanda Garden Club to meet in North PortThe Allamanda Garden Club of North Port will hold its September meeting at 1 p.m. Friday in Decker Hall at North Port Community United Church of Christ, 3450 S.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, September 25, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS SOUTH PUNTA GORDA HEIGHTS A 19-year-old accused of shooting at a man earlier this week was behind bars Wednesday on a $250,000 bond after authorities learned he had hidden the gun at his ex-girlfriends place without her knowledge, according to a Charlotte County Sheriffs report. Norvell Johnson III, of the 18400 block of Ebb Avenue, Port Charlotte, was booked into the Charlotte County Jail early Wednesday on a second-degree felony charge of shooting into a vehicle after investigators questioned him late Tuesday. It was the second time in as many days that Johnson was interrogated about a shooting that took place around 8:30 p.m. Monday on Mango Drive in South Punta Gorda Heights, but he was let go the rst time because no weapon was found. A man living on Mango Drive reported hearing gunshots, and then saw his SUV parked on the street had been damaged. Investigators found eight spent 9 mm casings within a 20-foot stretch of the road. Around the same time, someone else called authorities to say there was a Cadillac in the area with guns inside. A deputy spotted the Cadillac with four men inside, including Johnson leaving the Seven Palms apartment complex, and he made a trafc stop at the RaceTrac just north of the Barron Collier Bridge (U.S. 41 northbound) in Charlotte Harbor. While deputies were at the RaceTrac, a 33-yearold man drove up in a pickup and claimed he was the one who had been shot at. He said he knew Johnson, and they had been feuding earlier that day. A detective found a bullet hole through the victims driver-side mirror, and a dent in the front metal bumper that appeared to be from a bullet. Investigators took the four men from the Cadillac in for questioning, but couldnt nd any weapons in their vehicle. They were released. Then, Tuesday, a 17-year-old girl who used to date Johnson told her mother she thought Johnson may have hidden a gun in her backpack. She said Johnson had asked her to meet him in the Seven Palms parking lot with a backpack the night before. The girl said Johnson took the backpack into the car, returned it, and told her to put it in her room and leave it there. When the girls mother looked in the backpack, she found a 9 mm semiautomatic pistol wrapped in a shirt. The girl called the Sheriffs Ofce to let them know Johnson was on his way over to get the backpack Tuesday afternoon. Authorities met the suspect there and arrested him. The gun had bullets in it that matched the spent casings found on Mango Drive, the report shows. The investigation remains open. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Office reported the following arrests: Ricardo Hechavarria Aponte, 50, of Miami. Charge: uttering a counterfeit bill, check, draft or note. Bond: $7,500.

Our Town Page 6 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, September 25, 2014 The Lee County School Board struck down the districts proposed testing calendar at its Tuesday night meeting, effectively eliminating 68 tests from grades kindergarten through fth grade and putting assessment decisions back in teachers hands. The motion passed 3-1 with Cathleen Morgan in opposition and Chairman Tom Scott absent due to illness after school board members deliberated the necessity of districtmandated tests. The 68 tests were modeled like basic chapter tests, but were created by the district rather than teachers. They did not have high-stakes consequences and were used for district progress monitoring. The tests were mandatory and uniform or standardized across each school. Theres no mystery to these, they were simply designed to be uniform, said Superintendent Nancy Graham, who said the district-created tests were made at the request of principals and parents. Its your decision if you want to go this route and go back to teacher-based tests, and school folks will deal with whatever you decide. With the guidance of their principals, teachers will now be given the authority to decide which tests if any will be administered, said district spokesperson Amity Chandler. Morgan, the lone opponent of the decision, urged the board to respect what educators want. We are on shaky ground when we start to micromanage the people who are the experts in this district, she told the board. I dont see how we can sit up here and say that they cant have what they want because were going to pass judgment. Board member Mary Fischer, who wore red for the vote, said the vote was not opting out entirely, but will signicantly lower the volume of tests. Fischer said the amount of testing in recent years have been a form of child abuse. Were supposed to have a learning environment for kids that is safe, and makes them ready to learn, Fischer said. So when theyre coming in afraid of the testing, and you tell them theyre failing and parents are stressed out, it negatively impacts children in a psychological way. The board is required to submit its district testing calendar, which is now empty, to the Florida Department of Education by Oct. 1.Lee schools strike down all district testsBy EMILY ATTEBERRYFORT MYERS NEWS-PRESS Have you visited the Thrift Shops and the Gift Shop at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County lately?

The Sun /Thursday, September 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT A Vatican archbishop will be in North Port Sunday to celebrate a Mass at San Pedro Catholic Church. Monsignor Zygmunt Zimowski, 65, from Rome, Italy, will celebrate the 10:45 a.m. Mass at San Pedros in both English and Polish. Zimowski was the assistant to St. Pope John Paul II and is currently the president of the Pontical Council for Health Care Workers, a seat he has held since being appointed by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI in 2009. The Council explains the teachings of the Catholic Church on health issues. The Rev. Pat Organ, pastor of San Pedro, called Zimowskis visit an honor. He has friends who are friends of the owners of the Olde World Restaurant, Organ said of Zimowskis reason for stopping in North Port. I believe hes in Orlando, here for a convention for health-care workers, visiting on behalf of the Vatican, and, seeing as how he was going to be in the area, (decided to come to North Port.) While Zimowski will serve as celebrant of the Mass, Organ said he hopes to have several other Polish-speaking priests from the area concelebrate, along with himself and San Pedros parochial vicar, the Rev. Casey Jones. Ordained a priest in 1973, Zimowski has taught at the Catholic University of Lublin and at the Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University, both in Poland. He is the author of 120 publications, 40 pastoral letters and several books and articles. In addition to Polish, he speaks Italian, German, English, French and Russian. A member of the Congregation for Bishops, which is in charge of the selection of most Catholic bishops, since 2011 Zimowski has also been a member of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, which oversees the process that leads to the canonization of saints, including approving miracles, before passing the information along to the pope. He also serves as Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Radom, in Poland. Hes one of the big hitters over there (in Rome), Organ said, but from what Ive heard about him, hes kind of a down-to-earth sort of person. I havent met him yet, even though he was in the area last year. Organ said he expects a large crowd, especially from Polish members of the surrounding communities, and for the main sanctuary of San Pedros to be full during Mass. We will have to open up the chapel, too, he said, and possibly have a big television showing the Mass in another one of the parish buildings for overow. While there wont be a public reception following the Mass, Organ said there will be a lunch for Zimowski at the Olde World Restaurant. Everyone is welcome to attend Mass and enjoy the celebration. San Pedro Catholic Church is located at 14380 Tamiami Trail.Email: annek@sun-herald.comVatican archbishop to visit North PortBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER ZIMOWSKI Danny Tabor, president of the Florida State Elks Association, will be speaking Saturday at the Englewood Elks Lodge located at 401 N.

The Sun /Thursday, September 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 9 Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Jerry Apgar has always been a comic book fan, so when he got fed up with driving all the way to Sarasota to buy them, he decided it would be a lot easier to open his own store instead. There are no comic book stores in Venice, North Port or Port Charlotte, Apgar said. Its a pain to go to Sarasota every Wednesday. And Im not alone. Ive met others who say the same thing. They live in this area and theyre frustrated about that too, so I thought I would try to start a store of my own. Apgar, 42, lives in North Port and has been an acionado of comics since he was a kid. Its a hobby of mine, he said. I started collecting them and couldnt stop, really. I collected all of these Captain America and Spider-Man comics while I was in a job I didnt like, out in Denver, Colorado. Thats when he decided to turn his passion into his vocation and move back to his native Florida. Nuketown Comics its name borrowed from a popular map in the videogame Call of Duty opened Aug. 29 in the Sun Flea Market, at 18505 Paulson Drive in Port Charlotte. The shop features the exploits of an array of superheroes to suit any taste Batman, Superman, Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, New Mutants, X-Men and more. Apgar stocks everything from vintage comics all the way up to present-day stuff. Prices start at 50 cents. The Amazing SpiderMan is probably the most popular comic book series ever, he said. So I carry a lot of him. Im kind of partial to Marvel Comics, because I really like most of their characters. DC Comics which has Batman and Superman, for example usually has a lot of good characters, but not great ones. Just my opinion. But I carry them all. I love comics. Theres nothing like opening up a new one and smelling it. It reminds you of when you were a kid. The business is in its nascent stage, but if it ourishes, Apgar hopes to branch out by carrying comic book-related mer chandise such as action gures, posters and the like. He said he gets back issues of various comics all the time, while selling new books and taking requests. Nuketown Comics is currently open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday, but Apgar said he is always reachable by phone or via Facebook to take an order or locate a hard-to-nd item. I do a lot of online business on Facebook and eBay, he said. So Im available any time during the week if somebody wants me to look at their collection or locate a hard-to-nd item.

They have been doing construction on the Forrest Nelson Bridge at this intersection. I have seen county workers there all the time doing their inspections, and driving and swerving to miss the pothole. You would think one of the county workers would do their job and report the huge pothole. They may be doing repaving after the bridge work, but they should have lled the pothole a long time ago. I can only hope that after this letter, one of them will open their eyes. This is a disgrace, that none of them took the time to look out for us. What if someone hit the pothole and lost control of their vehicle and struck a construction worker or a piece of equipment? Too late to say I am sorry I did not do my job.Sal Annerino Port CharlotteEditor: Its great to hear about a SCTI campus coming to North Port, but Sarasota County residents should know that its not because of any school impact fees being assessed on new development because currently there are no school impact fees being assessed in Sarasota County. A few years ago, the board eliminated those fees completely because they projected that there would not be any new school construction anytime in the near future. (However, they conveniently left out the part about needing money to buy the land for those schools, a financial burden that has been resting squarely on the shoulders of the current taxpayers.) Keep that in mind when we see all of the new housing developments that have taken place in the county over the last few years, and those huge tracts of land being cleared for thousands of more new homes. None of those homes have paid or will pay a school impact fee for those schools that eventually will be needed because of that new development. But no need to fret, because the School Board has come up with an ingenious way to offset the revenue lost due to those non-existent impact fees: Its called the school tax refer endum and every four years taxpayers are convinced to subsidize the cost of new development. And you thought development paid its way and eased the tax burden for taxpayers.Alice White North PortEditor: It gets very tiresome watching Charlotte media/ leaders constantly crying on taxpayers shoulders to fund large, unnecessary wish list projects. Charlotte has become a beggar county, as our tax base remains dor mant and our citizenry earns insufcient income to bear further taxation. Politicians now demand hired lobbyists obtain more grants to fund projects deemed critical. Upon the podium of tears now steps the sheriff pleading with taxpayers to build a $9.1 million prisoner inrmary and citing the 1 percent sales tax extension as the funding source for this critical project, which is not included in his very large annual budget. Many citizens cannot afford health insurance and cannot readily access proper dental or medical services. But they will be forced to help fund the health care of prisoners using a new inrmary built Editor: Clean water is fundamental for people and wildlife. But right now, 2 million miles of streams and millions of acres of wetlands are stuck in a legal limbo, leaving the drinking water supplies for roughly one-third of all Americans, and many species of wildlife unprotected. The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a common-sense rule that would restore Clean Water Act protections to these waters. Nonetheless, last week agribusiness and mining lobbyists were able to convince the House of Representatives to pass a bill that would not only scuttle this particular proposal, but it would make future efforts to restore clean water protections very difcult. This bill went too far, and I was surprised to see the majority of Congress members support it. Luckily, the Senate is unlikely to take it up, and the president has promised a veto. There is a simpler solution: Everyone who is concerned about clean water and the proposals impacts should educate themselves by visiting www.epa.gov/uswaters. The public comment period is closing soon, however, so take action today. The recent toxic algae outbreaks, dead zones and chemical spills make it clear that leaving our waters open for further pollution and destruction is simply not an option. Our local wetlands are already under attack with our Board of County Commissioners voting to gut the countys Comprehensive 2050 plan. Too bad Congressman Tom Rooney feels the same way.Andy Wing EnglewoodEditor: Your editorial about the effects of global warming on bird species reects the usual wide-eyed naivety of the press regarding all disaster scenarios. I have followed this debate for 30 years, as a scientically educated per son; below are some easily checked facts to ponder. Fact: Arctic ice is up 63 percent since 2012. Fact: Antarctic ice is at a record level never before recorded. Fact: Niagara Falls froze solid last winter, for the rst time since 1911. Fact: Ground-based temperature observations are elevated by the population increase around the measurement stations: they therefore inaccurately imply warming. Fact: Satellite measurements, the only accurate global temperature measurements, show no warming at all for 18 years. Fact: None of the 30-plus academic computer models of climate variation predicted this. Fact: CO2 levels in the atmosphere were seven times the present level 100 million years ago, and that climate descended into an ice age. Fact: Sea level has risen at a constant rate since before 1900. Fact: 31,000 scientists signed the Oregon Petition, Editor: Imagine this scenario for a moment. You get dismissed from your job. In the coming weeks, you draft and present an entirely new position to your former company. Imagine telling your former boss that you are the only person for this position and its OK to skip standard procurement procedures. Continue to imagine telling your boss how much money you will be paid, when you will start and the length of your contract. Imagine writing your own job description too. Imagine your boss agreeing with everything. However, by ofcial standards, that position doesnt even exist. Broaden the scenario and imagine that you now hold two highly inuential positions within the same company. Imagine staff and board members disrespectfully ridiculing the only person who questions the recklessness of this decision. This scenario is now North Ports reality. Rob Robinson, our former city attorney, will now be the zoning hearing ofcer and the code enforcement magistrate for the city of North Port. Two fancy titles that hold a lot of power and expense. Im not sure which is worse Rob Robinson having the audacity to do everything stated above, or the fact that four commissioners agreed with this nonsense. Thank you, Linda Yates, for your voice of reason and wanting to follow the laws of the land that are already in place to protect our citizens, by saying no.Debbie McDowell North PortBright Futures funding should be state priorityOUR POSITION: Florida needs to replenish the funds cut from its popular Bright Futures scholarship program as the repercussions have denied opportunities for the most needy young people.Educators are calling on the Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott to spend as much as $45 million to prop up the states underfunded Bright Futures scholarship program. A story published in the Orlando Sentinel pointed out how cuts that were phased in the past three years have disproportionately affected minorities and the states most nancially challenged students. Bright Futures is a program instituted decades ago that rewards good students with scholarship money to continue their education at Florida colleges. The rewards are based on need and on the students scores on SAT or ACT tests that are required to enter college. This past year, according to the Sentinel, 35,000 fewer students qualied for Bright Futures scholarships with only 127,500 winning awards. That number will continue to dwindle under the current guidelines to about 83,500 students in three years about a 49 percent reduction from 2012. The loss of scholarships is a result of phased-in changes made to the program in 2011. Those changes which kicked in with the 2014 graduating class in cluded requiring higher ACT or SAT scores. The Florida Board of Governors researched the impact of the new guidelines, and its ndings are troubling. Those missing out on scholarship money and the opportunity to advance their education are mostly low-income and minority students. According to the board, and the Sentinel, 62 percent of black university students, 47 percent of Hispanic students and 32 percent of white students who met the requirements in 2012 did not meet the standards set for 2013. And, this past year, the guidelines were even tougher and affected even more low-income and minority students. If this trend continues, Florida will sabotage any effort to break the chain of poverty among its poorest families. A college education sometimes being offered to the rst person in a family to go to college can be essential for success. If the state snatches away that opportunity by continuing to underfund its Bright Futures program it will be responsible for more and more young people turning to low-paying jobs, most without insurance or benets. That, obviously, will continue the cycle of poverty among Floridians who otherwise might have the opportunity to break out and not only set a positive example but possibly help their families become more independent of government assistance. Both Gov. Scott and Democrat challenger Charlie Crist have spoken on the subject of Bright Futures scholarships and education funding during this years contentious campaign for governor. Crist has promised to restore the cuts to the program if elected. Scott has responded that Crist also raised the bar for students to earn Bright Futures scholarships when he was governor. Campaign rhetoric aside, the state faces a dilemma. It can continue down the path its on when Bright Futures funding dropped from $436 million in 2009 to less than $270 million this year and remain a poorly educated state. Or, it can make a commitment to send more of Floridas students to college and take a shot at impacting the grip poverty has on so many Florida families. We believe the answer should be clear. Investing in Floridas young people makes good sense. from higher cost of goods and services they will pay under this special tax. Do they have penny tax support for their critical needs, like the sheriff wants for prisoners? No way! Time for the sheriff to efciently use the assets he has and become innovative. Evict over 50 federal prisoners currently housed for extra revenue and, if needed, convert the emptied cells into critical inrmary space. Our champagne taste leaders continuously seek money from many people who have beer budgets, so their unfunded dream projects can become reality. This practice must stop. Vote no to extend sales tax, thereby allowing a family of four to retain $2,700 in their pockets where it belongs.Sue Arentsen Punta Gordastating that the actions of humans have not affected climate.

The Sun /Thursday, September 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINT Anti-climatechange marchers took to the streets of Manhattan, N.Y., in the hundreds of thousands over the weekend to demand international action to ght global warming. The throng would have been better advised to parade in downtown Beijing, assuming the Politburo wouldnt have called out the infantry. China is the locus of the alleged crime against the planet that is carbon emissions, yet the marchers staged their event in the United States, where prior to last year emissions had been declining (thanks, in part, to the natural-gas revolution, which oddly didnt get much love from the climate marchers). China is responsible for 27 percent of carbon emissions, more than any other country, and uses as much coal as the rest of the world. Since 1990, it has matched the U.S. in cumulative carbon emissions. China is representative of a developing nation that is taking the global lead on emissions, at nearly 60 percent of the total. There are many things we should be attempting to persuade China to stop doing: Arbitrarily ruling over its own people. Imprisoning and torturing dissidents. Occupying Tibet. Making aggressive territorial claims in its region. Compared with all of these, availing itself of the wonders of the industrial economy is welcome. And if we cant stop China from doing these other things self-evident violations of human rights or inter national norms how are we going to keep it from continuing to ramp up its economic growth, as any rational society would? The answer is that we almost certainly arent. Anti-global-warming activism consists of symbolic protests against a highly complex planetary phenomenon we understand poorly and dont control. The unpredicted pause in the rise in global temperature since the late 1990s is so embarrassing to climate activists, who are lled with a ery certitude about the science, that it goes unmentioned (the climate marchers could have chanted, Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Whered climate change go?). In their fevered urgency, they give off the sense that they are desperate to save the planet before it might become evident that it doesnt need saving. Our direct inuence on global warming is highly limited, even if you assume the science is completely settled. As a country, we could end our emissions entirely, and it would barely cause a blip in the cumulative carbon buildup in the atmosphere. There are causes to which the climate marchers could devote themselves that would have an immediate positive effect on human welfare: from promoting clean water in Third World countries to agitating for cures to all manner of diseases. None of this, though, is as alluring as anti-industrial apocalypticism. As writer Oren Cass has noted, todays climate activists resemble the unilateral nucleardisarmament movement of the 1980s, which also cloaked plainly ineffectual policies in the language of moral necessity. We could have eliminated all of our nuclear weapons as we were urged to do by protesters who insisted it was necessary to saving the planet and it wouldnt have moved the Soviets to do the same; in fact, it would have delighted them. The same dynamic is at work today. The U.N. is holding a warm-up confab for the push for a new international treaty in New York this week. It is blighted only by the fact that the worlds top emitters arent participating. They surely understand that the anti-global-warming movement threatens what the developing world is doing to enrich itself. The climate march in Manhattan drew representatives from around the world. But it is doubtful that many or any of them live on $1 a day. These are the desperately poor people from developing countries whose welfare stands to gain immensely from industrial development. They know what it means to ght for survival in a real sense, not in an airy metaphor about the planet and if the marchers were to have their way, they would never know anything else. Rich Lowry is the editor of the National Review. Readers may reach him at comments.lowry@ nationalreview.com.The climate march to nowhere Rich Lowry Common Core politics indeed makes strange bedfellows. Some of the most conservative tea party members are on the same side of the issue as some of the most liberal voters, although not really for the same reasons. To put it simply, the Common Core movement is an attempt to implement a common set of educational standards in all 50 states so that all students are working toward the same educational goals and measured by the same assessments. Many on the right view this as federal overreach and have been vocal in their opposition, even asking Gov. Rick Scott to stop Common Core in Florida. To date, some 45 states have adopted the Common Core state standards, but two states have repealed their laws this year Oklahoma and Indiana due to public pressure. Florida approved the benchmarks in 2010 with little dissent but public opposition is getting louder. Complicating matters for Scott is the fact that Jeb Bush is a vocal supporter of Common Core and of rigorous standardized testing in general. Scotts response to the public outcry was to make some changes to the standards and rebrand the new product as the Florida Standards. Opponents of Common Core were neither fooled nor impressed. Jeb Bush, on the other hand, was ne with the changes, as he recognized that the commitment to Common Core essentially remained intact. On the right, many tea party members and conservative parents have been voicing their opposition to federal overreach in public education. Meanwhile, moderate Republicans support the standards, as do the vast majority in the Republicandominated Florida Legislature. Interestingly, it wasnt the federal government that initiated the development of these standards. It was a bipartisan group of governors that came up with the idea and developed the standards and assessments. It was not mandatory; states could choose not to participate. Many Democrats, including their gubernatorial nominee, Charlie Crist, support a common set of education goals with other states. Some Democrats and professional educators have expressed concerns about the benchmarks stiing creativity and learning. The real sticking point for many Democrats, educational professionals and concerned parents comes on the assessment side. Assessment is educational-speak for testing. And Florida already relies too heavily on standardized testing. They believe testing serves a purpose in assessing where a students gains in learning are, but also believe that testing has become too highstake. Too much is riding on the outcome of a test school grades, teacher pay and promotion, and graduation, to name a few. Its reckless at best to continue to base student, teacher and school outcomes on a test that hasnt been fully developed or tested. Opponents on both sides of the political spectrum have correctly called for a cautionary timeout on testing until the test can be evaluated and validated. With little movement at the state level other than pacifying platitudes, concerned parents have taken to the school boards to voice their frustration and demands regarding the continuous expansion of testing over teaching. For example, the Lee County School Board voted to opt out of state standardized testing after listening to passionate testimony from parents. Immediately following the historic vote, political pressure was put on the board to reverse its 3-2 decision. After rescinding the vote days later, the other school boards that were considering the same move seem to have lost their zest to ght. So much for local control. It was not the federal government that bullied the school boards; it was the state of Florida. And it was not the federal bureaucrats who have been pushing for this nationalized approach. Rather, its the educational elite those who start think tanks and foundations and associations to promote school choice. The paid to advocate crowd that pushes the idea of parental choice as it pertains to vouchers and charter schools is also the crowd pushing for more and more standardized testing in public schools. Their advocacy for their parents know best whats right for their children mantra applies to school choice, but is ercely challenged when it comes to standardized testing. If Florida doesnt have the backbone to address the madness of too much high-stakes testing, it should allow local school boards to make the decision without bullying them or threatening their resources. Heres another idea, allow parents to opt their children out. After all, parents know best.

MARCO RUBIO, RFLORIDA(AP) A suspect in the fatal ambush of a trooper has occasionally made himself visible to ofcers before melting back into the forest, and police found empty packs of Serbian-branded cigarettes and soiled diapers believed to have been left by him, Pennsylvania State Police said Wednesday. Ofcers saw a man they believe to be Eric Frein as recently as Tuesday, Lt. Col. George Bivens said Wednesday afternoon. But it was at a distance, and the extremely rugged terrain separating the ofcers from Frein gave him the ability to disappear, Bivens told reporters. It was the rst time authorities have reported possibly laying eyes on the 31-year-old suspect charged with opening re at the Blooming Grove state police barracks on Sept. 12, killing Cpl. Bryon Dickson and seriously wounding a second trooper who remains hospitalized. Bivens said the discovery of the empty packs of cigarettes and dirty diapers is helping to cement authorities belief they were closing in as the manhunt stretched into its 12th full day. They believe Frein is using diapers so he can remain stationary for long periods of time. They are testing the diapers to conrm he wore them. Frein appears to be probing the loose perimeter thats been set up around him in a heavily wooded area around Canadensis, where he grew up and his parents still live, Bivens said. He appears to have purposely made himself visible at times, staying just far enough away to make it unlikely hed be caught, he said. I almost think that some of this is a game to him, Bivens said. Upwards of 1,000 law enforcement ofcials have been involved in the search for Frein, named last week to the FBIs 10 most wanted list. He is considered armed and dangerous, and police have authority to kill him if he doesnt surrender. In an indication of just how wild the landscape is, tactical teams have kicked out quite a few bears as they search for Frein in caves, Bivens said. The lengthy manhunt has upended life in this usually tranquil corner of the Pocono Mountains, with unannounced and indefinite roadblocks and a shelter in place directive that prevented residents from leaving their houses for more than 24 hours at one point. Those who werent already home could not return. Residents say they support police in the search for Frein, but patience is wearing thin. Families are getting separated, said Adam Christmann, who has been kept from his home at least twice in the past few days. High school student Kendall Lewczak left home at 7 a.m. Friday to go to work with her mom, since classes had been canceled because of the manhunt. They came back in the late afternoon to nd access to their street blocked off. We spent the night over on the bridge sleeping in the car waiting, and hoping, that we could get home, Lewczak said. Authorities insist residents have been able to get escorts to their homes in emergencies, such as to retrieve medication. But some residents said elderly relatives have been left unattended and pets unfed. One attorney accused police of violating residents rights, and urged anyone who felt aggrieved to contact him. Just because one of their brethren was mur dered does not give them a right to violate YOUR Rights, Joshua Prince of Bechtelsville wrote on his rms website. | WORLDAnti-addiction groups call for new FDA chiefWASHINGTON (AP) Anti-addiction activists are calling for the Food and Drug Administrations top ofcial to step down, saying the agencys policies have contributed to a national epidemic of prescription painkiller abuse. In a letter released Wednesday, more than a dozen groups ask the Obama administrations top health ofcial to replace FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg, who has led the agency since 2009.

The report also revised up the July sales rate to 427,000 from 412,000. Newly constructed homes sold at the fastest clip since May 2008. Its a clear sign of improvement for a real estate market that has been muddled in recent months, as the rebound in sales following the housing bust began to slow. Sales of new homes are up 33 percent over the past 12 months. Median prices for new homes have risen nearly 8 percent during the same period to $275,600.15 track workers deaths prompt NTSB study(AP) Railroad regulators have adopted a report that says some federal workplace safety standards should be extended to workers on and near the tracks. The National Transportation Safety Board voted Wednesday to accept a study resulting from 15 deaths of railroad roadway employees in 2013. The number was up from eight in 2012 and ve in 2011. Among the reports ndings is that differences between regulations of the Federal Railroad Administration and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration can be confusing. It recommends that the railroad administration include OSHA standards during job briengs for roadway workers. It said causes of deaths included workers hit by trains, falls from bridges, electrocution and a mudslide.2 supervisors killed in Alabama UPS shootingBIRMINGHAM, Ala.

Those who did nd work had a difcult time with their job search and the effects of unemployment, the survey by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University found. Nearly 40 percent said it took more than seven months to nd employ ment and about one in ve of laid-off workers said all they could nd was a temporary position. Almost half 46 per cent of the estimated 30 million layoff victims who found new jobs said they paid less then their old ones, according to the survey of 1,153 U.S adults done over the summer.Soda makers join forces to trim calories(LA Times) Soda giants Coca-Cola Co., PepsiCo and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group are getting together to urge Americans to stop drinking so many sugary drinks. The beverage companies announced a new initiative Tuesday to reduce by 20 percent the number of beverage calories consumed per person in the U.S. by 2025. The drink makers who announced the plan at the Clinton Global Initiative will focus on introducing lower-calorie products and small sizes and on marketing low-calorie offerings more aggressively. They will also work on adding calorie infor mation to areas such as vending machines and self-service fountain equipment. Susan Neely, chief executive of the American Beverage Association, said these efforts will help transform the beverage landscape in America.

The line appears in Sundays much-awaited special where Bart Simpson and his family hang around with Stewie and the rest of the Family Guy crew, and has already circulated in a trailer for the episode that Fox released online over the summer. It punctuates a scene in which the incorrigible Bart is instructing Stewie Grifn in the art of the prank phone call. Bart dials the owner of Moes Tavern and asks whether there is anyone there with the last name Keybum, rst name Lee. When Moe calls out to his patrons, asking for a leaky bum, everyone gets a laugh. Stewie thinks thats cool, and asks to make his own prank call. Hello, Moe? he says. Your sisters being raped. Tim Winter, president of the advocacy group Parents Television Council, said hes a longtime fan of Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, and sought out the trailer when it was released. I was blown out of my shoes when I saw the scene with the rape joke in it, Winter said. It really troubled me. He said he found it particularly offensive in the context of stories about sexual assaults on college campuses and, most recently, talk about abusive treatment of women by some players in the National Football League. He said when rape is accepted as a punch line for a joke in entertainment, it becomes less outrageous in real life. Winter said he wrote to Groening, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane and Fox in August, asking that the joke be removed when the episode is shown on television. He said he received no reply.Rape joke on Fox cartoon disturbs

The Sun /Thursday, September 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 STATE NEWS ESTERO (Naples Daily News) Above the hustle and bustle of shoppers at the Coconut Point mall, sits a technology hub centered not around fashion, but real estate. Over top of Boston Proper and across from Victorias Secret, a roughly 1,200 square foot suite overlooking Fashion Drive in Estero has become somewhat of an incubator for three growing local real estate enterprises: Agent Shield, Testimonial Tree and the newest, REndly. You see this model in bigger cities. Its unconventional for our market, said Bill Schiller, a content developer for REndly. At the office, pizza deliveries are a habit. So are late nights and the sounds of rock music. Shorts, sandals and T-shirts are the usual dress. We all help each other, said Jason Dolle, Testimonial Trees president, eyeing his fellow entrepreneurs from a shared meeting table at their well-hidden ofces. The help they give each other includes everything from customer referrals to bouncing ideas off one another. Agent Shield has a patented technology for selling new homes, while Testimonial Tree offers a quick way for Realtors and other professionals to collect testimonials for their websites from happy customers. The founders of both companies have a background in real estate, having worked as licensed agents themselves, so theyre a good sounding board for REndlys still-evolving products. Its just the right timing, the right situation, said Lu Doan, a co-founder and CEO of Agent Shield. REndly sells a customized technology that helps generate leads for real estate agents and brokers and helps keep them organized, power ing their websites to help them build their business. The startups enterprise software suite moved out of its testing stage last month. REndly recently celebrated its one-year anniversary, though its technology has been under development for more than two years by its co-owner and chief technology ofcer, Ryan Tremblay, 30, a Naples native who started building it out of his home. For about a year, Tremblay worked for Allen Systems Groups, a global, Naples-based software developer and service provider, before starting his rst web design and development company, which hes since sold. The sale of that company helped him fund the new startup. REndly was born out of need when Tremblay heard the frustrations of a team of local agents with the Domain Group, who work for Downing-Frye Realty Inc., in Bonita Springs. The Realtors struggled to nd the right technology to help them keep up with and grow their business. Staying up to date on new listings was just one of their challenges, another was getting noticed on the Internet. Neither are problems now, with REndlys technology behind them, said Marc Comisar, part of the Domain Group. With REndly, agents get instant alerts through email or text messages the minute a property is listed, they get leads on clients through its targeted ads, they get intelligence that helps them keep track of customers and their interests, and they get more visible websites that land higher in search engine rankings. We call it an online business card, Tremblay said. His software can automatically organize leads as they come in, making it easier for agents to follow-up on them, and a built-in calendar can help agents more easily manage their day-to-day tasks. Since the technology is web-based, agents can do business in or out of the ofce, from any computer, tablet or phone, as long as they can connect to the Internet. Automation is part of the convenience that comes with REndlys products. For example, the system can automatically generate responsive emails to customers who are searching for properties on a Realtors website when the agent is working out in the eld. Listings on websites hosted by REndly automatically update every 30 minutes, feeding new data in from the agents selected Multiple Listing Services. Pricing depends on what the agents want. If they go to REndly directly, the cost for a website with a public property search is $149 a month, with a $499 setup fee. The customer relationship capability costs another $50 a month, and the price tag for lead generation starts at $100 a month.New technology a hit with real estate agents | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATECharge on Florida insurance bills to be removedWINTER PARK (AP) A 1-percent surcharge now in place on most insur ance bills in Florida will be removed next summer. The board of Citizens Property Insurance Corp. voted on Wednesday to end an emergency assessment two years earlier than anticipated. Citizens has been using the charge to pay off debts it racked up following Hurricane Wilma in 2005. The state-created insurer was forced to bor row nearly $1 billion in 2007. Citizens is allowed under state law to place an assessment on most insurance bills, including auto insurance policies, to cover any losses. Citizens ofcials estimate that the extra charge has cost some Floridians more than $1,000 since it was rst put in place. The charge, which some critics call a hurricane tax, will end in July 2015.9 Cuban migrants arrive at Key Biscayne condoKEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (AP) Nine Cuban migrants are being processed by ofcials after arriving at a Key Biscayne condominium on a homemade boat. The men landed on shore Tuesday afternoon and were greeted by residents. Witnesses said the migrants screamed with joy and began shouting Cuba! Cuba! as they were taken inside the building. Under the wet-foot, dry-foot policy, Cuban migrants who touch U.S. soil are generally allowed to stay. Those caught at sea are nearly always returned.Jury selection resumes in loud music killing caseJACKSONVILLE (AP) The second trial of a Florida man accused of killing a teenager during an argument over loud music outside a Jacksonville convenience store is scheduled to resume. Jury selection continues Wednesday as attorneys for 47-year-old Michael Dunn argue that intense media coverage has made getting a fair jury impossible. Circuit Judge Russell Healey has yet to rule on whether to move the case. The Florida Times-Union reports more than 60 jurors have been qualied so far. Prosecutors say Dunn killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Georgia, by ring 10 times into an SUV occupied by four teens.Florida woman jailed after baby found in trunkFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) A 19-year-old South Florida woman faces child abuse charges after deputies found her 5-month-old child in her vehicles trunk during a trafc stop. Broward Sheriffs deputies say they tried to pull over a vehicle on Tuesday but Breona Watkins kept driving. When she stopped, the deputy heard a baby crying in the trunk. According to an arrest report, the child was lying on top of a pair of hedge clippers and was surrounded by dangerous objects including a gas can and other debris. Watkins told authorities she asked her 14-yearold passenger to slide the baby into the trunk through a back seat panel because she didnt want to get ticketed for not having a car seat. Watkins remains jailed on $7,000 bail. It wasnt known whether she has a lawyer. rfffntbbnffr nrfrfffrfffnf rnffrfffrfff f rfnrfrntbtbrnrbtf btrtntrn rfntbfnfr nffrfn tnf ffn b rrfntbnnfff rnnfnfnffttfrbbrr br rfntbt rfnntbnbrrr rnntbnbrfffbfnrrbf rrbnntbbrfnntbrrrnntbnntb rbnr rrrbrnrrr rrrrrfrfrr 50474895

(AP) A Pennsylvania man has been charged with making three 911 calls to report bogus emergencies simply because he was lonely and wanted paramedics to show up. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports 52-year-old Gregory Shaffer was jailed after his arraignment Wednesday on charges of making false reports to authorities. Penn Township police say Shaffer called Westmoreland Countys 911 center three times over about four hours on July 30 with various false complaints. The rst time, Shaffer claimed he had fallen down some stairs and injured his head and neck. Paramedics say they found him intoxicated but otherwise well and calmly waiting inside his home. Hes in the county jail and faces a preliminary hearing Tuesday.ODD NEWS Police: Lonely man made 911 callsFROM PAGE ONE But a major bust at a North Florida prison ignored, for the most part, by the department paints a vivid portrait of what some insiders say is the key corrupting force within prisons: gangs and their connections with crooked guards. Two former prison sergeants are awaiting trial after being accused of ordering an inmate to be killed to protect the guards role as kingpins of an institution-wide gang operation. Former Sgts. Robert Simmons and Delrikos Brooks face a slew of felony charges, including ordering the hit on one of the inmates at Taylor Correctional Institution, money laundering and directing the activities of a criminal gang. Simmons and Brooks are being held in the Taylor County Jail. For more than a year, at least ve guards, including Simmons and Brooks, allegedly helped the Bloods, Folk and MPR gangs by smuggling drugs, cellphones and cigarettes into the prison in exchange for thousands of dollars in payments, according to probable-cause afdavits. Last fall, Brooks and Simmons ordered inmate David Powell to be removed after he threatened to expose the operation, according to the allegations. Powell survived two botched attempts on his life in which other inmates stabbed him. Sources familiar with similar investigations said the Taylor County cases are the only ones in recent history in which correc tions workers have been charged with ordering an inmate to be killed. But the way the guards are alleged to have been paid for sneaking contraband into the Perry prison and the manner in which the gangs operated their criminal enterprise outlined in detail in the Simmons and Brooks cases is all too common in the Florida corrections system where, by the agencys own estimates, at least 10 percent of the 100,000 inmates are afliated with gangs. Probable-cause afdavits accompanying the arrests of the guards read like a script from a cable television show. The gangs allegedly paid Simmons up to $24,000 for eight trips to Tampa, where he picked up drugs and cellphones from the brother of inmate David Cancel, a one-time high-ranking gang member. Cancel then sold the goods for a prot. Simmons would wear a heavy jacket in warm weather to let gang members know when he had goods for sale, the documents say. Brooks, described as the alpha member of the prisons Bloods gang, allegedly sold MDMA, also known as Molly, and synthetic marijuana known as K-2, or spice, for between $50 and $300, according to court records. Powell, at one time an elite member of one of the gangs, got sideways with the guards when he caught Brooks giving a cellphone to an inmate and threatened to expose him, the documents allege. Simmons spread the word to other inmates that Powell was ratting out Brooks. While outside at the recreation yard the next day, Powell was jumped by several gang members and stabbed, but not seriously. After the rst bungled attempt on Powells life, Brooks, a strapping 33-year-old who earned $32,000 a year, pretended to sympathize with the inmate and offered to set up a ght between Powell and other gang members. The next day, Brooks and Simmons sent another inmate to nish the job on Powell, according to the allegations. Former guard Valshantaya Cook who wasnt supposed to be working in the dorm but who was sent there by another guard in on the plot was accused of giving inmate Ernest Harrington entree into Powells dorm. Harrington stabbed Powell in the hand, but, again, Powell escaped serious injury. Cook later told other guards that Harrington was not involved in the attack on Powell. Cook was charged with a variety of crimes, including money laundering, bringing contraband into a prison and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.PRISONSFROM PAGE 1 has declined by more than 60 percent since the mid-1990s, according to Justice Department gures. Yet the dramatic decrease from 1995 through 2004 has largely stalled, with the numbers stabilizing at a level that appalls people in the pre vention eld. The latest federal gures for serious intimate partner violence sexual assault or aggravated physical assault showed 360,820 such incidents in 2013, or roughly 1,000 per day. Meanwhile, many organizations that serve the victims are struggling to meet rising demand, particularly in the past few weeks since a graphic video surfaced of suspended Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking his future wife unconscious in a casino elevator. Shelters are turning away victims for lack of beds and staff; the National Domestic Violence Hotline could handle barely half of the 8,500 calls that came during the eight days after the Rice video appeared. Statistically, are we improving? asked the hotlines president, Katie Ray-Jones. From a service standpoint, it doesnt feel like it. The sharp decline in domestic violence began soon after the 1994 enactment of the federal Violence Against Women Act, which toughened penalties for offenders, expanded training for law enforcement and improved services for victims. However, that drop in domestic violence coincided with a comparable drop in virtually all types of violent crime. Janet Lauritsen, a criminology professor at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, said theres been no authoritative research to gauge the role of the federal act in curtailing domestic violence. Kim Gandy, a former prosecutor who now heads the National Network to End Domestic Violence, said most law enforcement agencies have vastly improved their handling of domestic violence over the past 20 years, while public attitudes and understanding have lagged behind. She hopes awareness will increase as the NFL cases spark a national conversation on domestic violence that she described as unprecedented. People who never talked about it before are talking about it now, saying it happened in my family, Gandy said. Its an opportunity to begin removing the stigma from domestic violence, so victims will feel more free to tell their stories. Clearly, theres been a ripple effect. As debate arose over whether Rices ancee, Janay Palmer, should have married him after being slugged, thousands of women took to Twitter, under the hashtags WhyIStayed and WhyILeft, to share their own stories reecting the sometimes difcult choice of whether or not to leave an abusive partner. I stayed because my pastor told me that God hates divorce. It didnt cross my mind that God might hate abuse, too, tweeted writer Beverly Gooden on Sept. 8 as she called on her followers to join her in breaking the silence. Even as awareness increases, theres concern as to whether prevention and support programs have adequate resources to meet demand. In many cases, advocates say they dont, due to a tightening of funding from various levels of government and from charitable donors. In Indiana, for example, domestic-violence prevention advocates have mobilized in recent days to protest moves by the state government to cut or withhold hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding for their programs.DOMESTICFROM PAGE 1 al-Khilafah two days ago, Gourdel, anked by armed men, identied himself and asked Hollande not to inter vene in Iraq. A mountain guide from the French Alps, Gourdel was rock climbing east of the capital, Algiers. Jund al-Khilafah, which means Army of the Caliphate, isnt well known and is probably a splinter of Algerias already atomized al-Qaidalinked groups, said James Fallon, senior Middle East analyst at Control Risks in Dubai. The North African country, which went through a bloody civil war in the 1990s, has been largely quiet since a massive security crackdown following a spate of bombings in 2007. This kidnapping smacks of opportunism by a group that has drawn its inspiration from the gains made by Islamic State, Fallon said in a telephone interview. Islamic State doesnt appear to have any operational links outside of the Iraq-Syria-Lebanon arc, but we cant exclude these sort of opportunistic copycat attacks. Hollande said hed spoken to Gourdels family and hell call a meeting of Frances inner security cabinet upon his return to Paris tomorrow. He said the government will take further measures to beef up security in France and for French citizens overseas. France will never cede to terrorism, because its its duty and its honor, Hollande said. A spokesman for Islamic State earlier this week called on its followers to kill Americans and Europeans, particularly French nationals. I dont want to panic our citizens but to convince them: Never have we faced such a terrorist menace, Valls said in a radio interview Tuesday.BEHEADEDFROM PAGE 1 against the Islamic State was just one in a cascade of crises that confronted the presidents, prime ministers and monarchs at the annual meeting of the U.N. General Assembly. Also vying for attention was Russias continued provocations in Ukraine, a deadly Ebola outbreak in West Africa, and the plight of civilians caught in conicts around the world. Not since the end of the Second World War have there been so many refugees, displaced people and asylum seekers, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said as he opened Wednesdays session. In a rare move, Obama also chaired a meeting of the U.N. Security Council where members unanimously adopted a resolution requiring all countries to prevent the recruitment and transport of would-be foreign ghters preparing to join terrorist organizations such as the Islamic State group. The American-led military campaign in the Middle East was at the center of much of the days discussions. After weeks of airstrikes in Iraq, U.S. planes began hitting targets in Syria this week, joined by an unexpected coalition of five Arab nations: Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. There were more U.S. and coalition airstrikes Wednesday on both sides of the Syrian-Iraqi border. U.S. and allied planes and drones hit a dozen targets in Syria that included smallscale oil refineries that have been providing millions of dollars to the Islamic State, the U.S. Central Command said. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates took part in addition to U.S. aircraft. France has also taken part in strikes in Iraq, and British Prime Minister David Camerons office announced that Parliament was being recalled to London to debate whether to join the campaign, too. The Islamic State has made lightning gains in Iraq this year and now moves freely across the increasingly blurred border with Syria. The group has claimed responsibility for the beheading of two American journalists and a British aid worker, sparking outrage in the West and contributing to an increase in public support for military action. U.S. officials say they are concerned that foreigners with Western passports could return to their home countries to carry out attacks. And even as Obama welcomed support for the resolution to deter foreign fighters, he said more must be done. The words spoken here today must be matched and translated into action, he said.OBAMAFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOA Turkish soldier stands by as Syrian refugees wait for permis sion to enter Turkey at Yumurtalik crossing gate near Suruc, Turkey, Wednesday.TALLAHASSEE (AP) The race between Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Republicanturned-Democrat former Gov. Charlie Crist is too close to call and voters arent happy with their choice, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday. The poll shows that 44 percent of likely voters prefer Scott, and 42 per cent prefer Crist, while 8 percent say theyd vote for Libertarian Adrian Wyllie. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, meaning the race is a statistical tie. Voters seem to agree, though, that neither major party candidate is trustworthy. The poll showed that 49 percent of voters dont think Crist is honest, compared to 37 percent who say he is. Scotts numbers are similar 51 percent say he isnt trustworthy compared to 39 percent who say he is. When fewer than four in 10 voters think both the Democratic and Republican candidates for governor are honest, you know this has been one of the nastiest races in state history, said Peter Brown, assistant director of the univer sitys poll. They have been throwing so much mud that they both are covered in it. Neither candidate has a good approval rating, with 49 percent of respondents saying they have an unfavor able opinion of Crist compared to 48 percent who said they have an unfavorable opinion of Scott.Poll: Floridas governors race too close to call

Check out those hot looks: Shades of gray. All-white kitchens have been the rage in recent years. Theyre still popular, but more designers are shaking things up by using grays and beiges (or greige, a combo of the two), according to the National Kitchen & Bath Associations 2014 Kitchen & Bath Style Report. Those neutrals look crisp and classic on their own and blend well with many other colors. Get the look without remodeling. One of the easiest ways to give your kitchen a cool and modern vibe is to paint the walls, backsplash or cabinets a neutral shade of gray. But you have to do it right, or gray can end up giving your kitchen a chilly, industrial look. One way to warm things up is to pair gray with wood tones or energetic accent colors such as red, orange or yellow. And be sure to choose a semigloss paint, which is the perfect finish for a kitchen because its easy to clean. Built-in charging stations. With more people downloading recipes, using FaceTime with friends and reading their morning news on a tablet, the kitchen has become a hub for electronic devices. That has led to the rise of cleverly concealed charging stations showing up in drawers, utility closets or cabinets with built-in electrical outlets and USB ports. Get the look without remodeling. To keep a tangle of cords from messing up your countertops, ShopSmart suggests looking for a freestanding multidevice charging station that looks nice when left out or that can be tucked into a cabinet. Or consider an electrical outlet with a built-in USB port, about $20 at amazon. com. When installed on a backsplash, those outlets let you charge your phone or tablet while using the blender. Distressed wood flooring. Traditional kitchen flooring -tile, laminate and vinyl still has its fans, but hardwood floors are becoming more widely used in open-plan kitchens. They create a warm, seamless look between living areas. Whats new is that designers are using hand-scraped, grooved and other distressed floors because their dents and dings conceal wear and tear. Get the look without remodeling. You dont have to rip anything out if you install floating floors. They fit together without being glued or nailed down to a subfloor and can be laid over an old, dingy floor as long as its flat and level. Beverage centers. For people who enter tain a lot, creating a designated spot where guests can hang out and help themselves to coffee, cocktails and more is catching on. It can be anything from a simple coffee station to the works liquor cabinet, wine chiller, ice maker, sink, built-in coffee maker or espresso machine and cabinets for mugs, glasses and supplies. Get the look without remodeling. If you have space, add a pretty armoire to house wine racks, glasses and coffee fixings. Or park a freestanding coffee maker on a counter with wall-mounted coffee mugs above it. Colorful appliances. Move over, stainless; ShopSmart says it is seeing a lot more color ful appliance finishes. The latest design shows, including the spring 2014 Architectural Digest Home Design Show in New York, were ablaze with dishwashers, ranges, range hoods and refrigerators in vibrant hues from high-end manufacturers. Bertazzoni, based in Italy, says that 10 percent of its appliances are sold in bold colors, including an eye-popping orange. Big Chill, based in Colorado, offers more than 200 bright and cheery colors on its retro-style appliances. And Miele recently unveiled a subtle shade called Truffle Brown. Sounds yummy! Get the look without remodeling. Keep the expensive stuff cabinets, counters, major appliances in neutral shades and inject color with easy, affordable accents such as canisters, place mats and small appliances.5 hot kitchen trends NEW YORK (AP) U.S. stocks rebounded Wednesday and had their best performance in more than a month, led by gains in health care and consumer staples companies. Once again, investors were willing to step in to buy any noticeable dip in the market, even as more bad news emerged about Europes economy and worries over violence in Iraq and Syria continued. The Dow Jones industrial average advanced 154.19 points, or 0.9 percent, to 17,210.06, its best day since Aug. 18. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 15.53 points, or 0.8 percent, to 1,998.30 and the Nasdaq composite rose 46.53 points, or 1 percent, to 4,555.22. The gains came after three days of losses for the S&P 500 and two straight days of tripledigit losses for the Dow Jones industrial average. With the gains Wednesday, the Dow recovered more than half of what it lost Monday and Tuesday. The biggest gainer in the S&P 500 was Bed Bath & Beyond, which rose $4.64, or 7.4 percent, to $67.33. The home furnishings company reported a quarterly prot of $1.17 a share, two cents above analysts expectations. The company also raised its full-year forecast. Walmart rose $1.48, or 2 percent, to $77.08, making it the second-biggest advancer in the Dow. The retail giant took a big step into the nancial services sector, announcing a new checking account program for customers in collaboration with Green Dot. The news sent Green Dot shares soaring $4.59, or 24 percent, to $23.41. Investors also got a positive report on the U.S. economy. Sales of new homes jumped 18 percent in August, reaching an annual rate of 504,000, according to the Commerce Department, far better than the 430,000 rate economists had expected.US stocks advance after 3 days of declines( Washington Post) As vacationers hoarded snacks and human waste dribbled down the walls of last years cruise from hell, many expected Carnival, the worlds biggest cruise operator, had suffered a businesswrecking hit. But new numbers show the stink from the cruise lines high-prole disaster last year has already begun to fade. Carnival just logged one of its best summers in history, beating projections by posting nearly $5 billion in sales of tickets, tours and on-board goodies. Its on track to earn $16 billion in sales this year, breaking a company record. Many more people bought tickets, with Caribbean cruises booking nearly 20 percent more guests this summer than the year before, company lings show. And once those cruisers were sailing, they spent nearly 10 percent more on things like vacation trinkets and fruity drinks. The good fortunes for the vacation giant that was so recently a laughingstock surprised not just analysts, but Carnival itself. Chief executive Arnold Donald said Tuesday on a conference call that the cruise lines recovery is probably a little faster than we had a right to believe it would be. Last year was one night mare after another for Carnival, the $31 billion cruise behemoth that runs its namesake cruise line and 10 other big-ship brands worldwide. A re in the Carnival Triumphs engine room in February stranded the ships more than 4,000 passengers and crew for four days with no power or running toilets, turning the oating resort into a hot port-o-potty. A month later, mechanical problems aboard the Carnival Dream and Carnival Legend led the cruise line to cancel scheduled stops and, in the Dreams case, y passengers back home. In the months since, Carnival has emptied its pockets and cranked up its marketing to win back grossed-out passengers. Carnival is having one of its best sales years yet

The decision follows a request for help from the Iraqi government, and the House of Commons will debate on a substantive motion, Camerons ofce said in an emailed statement. Cameron, who is in New York attending the United Nations General Assembly, has the backing of his Liberal Democrat coalition partners, and opposition Labour leader Ed Miliband has said he is open to the possibility of supporting airstrikes.Dutch to send fighter jets to strike at IS in IraqTHE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) The Dutch government is sending six F-16 ghter jets to strike at the Islamic State extremist group in Iraq, Deputy Prime Minister Lodewijk Asscher announced Wednesday. The Cabinet met for hours behind closed doors before approving the deployment of six planes and two reserve jets along with 250 pilots and support staff. The Dutch also will send about 130 military trainers to Iraq to school Iraqi and Kurdish ghters battling the Islamic State group on the ground. Asscher said the Dutch governments decision was in response to the Iraqi governments appeals for help from the international community. He added that the government doesnt currently see an international mandate for joining airstrikes in Syria.India becomes first Asian nation to reach Mars NEW DELHI (Washington Post) India became the rst Asian nation to reach the Red Planet when its indigenously made unmanned spacecraft entered the orbit of Mars on Wednesday and the rst nation in the world to successfully reach Mars on its rst attempt. The spacecraft called Mangalyaan, or Marscraft in Hindi, which was launched last November, slowed down just enough to reach orbit early Wednesday, securing India a place in the elite global space club of Martian explorers.Flight 370 search pushes farther southSYDNEY (Bloomberg) Underwater vehicles will search for the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 further south than previously expected, after analysts revised their views of the planes last movements. Priority regions for a deep-sea sonar search will most likely extend south of the previous orange priority area, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said in a statement on its website. Three search ves sels are preparing to start a yearlong scan of the ocean bottom for wreckage of the aircraft, which disappeared March 8 with 239 people on board. The search in 3.9-mile deep waters of the Indian Ocean off Western Australia aims to nd remains of the Boeing Co. 777-200. HEXINGTEN, China (AP) The corn has grown to only half its normal height on Yan Shuqins ranch in the hills of Inner Mongolia this year, as a swath of northern China suffers its worst drought in 60 years. The ruddy-faced woman said that even before the rains stopped, the groundwater in her region had been sinking, from about 70 feet below the surface just a few years ago to as much as 260 feet this past summer. While she can still eat and sell the corn, lettuce and other vegetables on her farm, the yield has shrunk. If the grass doesnt grow and the vegetables die off, whos going to be able to live here? Yan asked outside her familys spotless two-room house. My mother and her mother lived here. My family has always lived here. What are my children going to do? After a season of record-breaking drought across China, groundwater levels have hit historic lows this year in northeast and central parts of China where hundreds of millions of people live. Reservoirs grew so dry in agricultural Henan province that the city of Pingdingshan closed car washes and bathhouses and extracted water from puddles. But this is no one-time emergency. Farmers like Yan and water-hungry industries have been wrestling with a long-term water crisis that has dried up more than half the countrys 50,000 signicant rivers and left hundreds of cities facing what the government classies as a serious scarcity of water. Half a billion Chinese live in a handful of provinc es, largely in the northeast, where coal-red power plants, steel foundries and other water-gulping industries already burden reservoirs and aquifers. Widespread chemical runoff and other pollution have contaminated 60 percent of the countrys groundwater. The countrys climate is also warming, particular in its populous northeast where rain levels have fallen, according to a 2011 study by Chinese, French and British researchers. Meanwhile, the countrys south has seen its rainfall concentrated in shorter bursts, which has made it harder to predict water supplies. As a result, per capita water availability in the megacities of Beijing and Shanghai as well as their surrounding provinces equals that of dry Middle Eastern countries such as Israel and Jordan, said Feng Hu, a water analyst with the Hong Kong-based research group China Water Risk. By comparison, the average U.S. household has access to nearly ve times more available water than Chinese households do.Drought worsens Chinas water crisis AP PHOTOIn this Monday, July 28, photo, boats sit on a dried river bed in Xunxian county in central Chinas Henan province. ISTANBUL (AP) Asiya Ummi Abdullah doesnt share the view that the Islamic State group rules over a terrorist dystopia and she isnt scared by the American bombs falling on Raqqa, its power center in Syria. As far as shes concerned, its the ideal place to raise a family. In interviews with The Associated Press, the 24-year-old Muslim convert explained her decision to move with her toddler to the territory controlled by the militant group, saying it offers them protection from the sex, drugs and alcohol that she sees as rampant in largely secular Turkey. The children of that country see all this and become either murderers or delinquents or ho mosexuals or thieves, Umi Abdullah wrote in one of several Facebook messages. Living under Shariah, the Islamic legal code, means that her 3-year-old boys spiritual life is secure, she said. He will know God and live under his rules, she said. Ummi Abdullahs experience illustrates the pull of the Islamic State group, the self-styled caliphate straddling Iraq and Syria. It also shows how, even in modern Turkey entire families are dropping everything to nd salvation. While the Islamic State organization promotes itself as a family-friendly place, it in fact has uprooted hundreds of thousands of enemy families and massacred hundreds of soldiers and civilians defending their homes in a wave of killings that include crucixions and beheadings. Ummi Abdullah, originally from Kyrgyzstan, reached the Islamic State group only last month, and her disappearance became front-page news in Turkey after her ex-husband, a 44-year-old car salesman named Sahin Aktan, went to the press. Many others in Turkey have carted away family to the Islamic State group under less public scrutiny and in greater numbers. Earlier this month, more than 50 families slipped across the border to live under Islamic State, according to opposition legislator Atilla Kart. Karts gure appears high, but his account is backed by a villager from Cumra, in central Turkey, who told AP that his son and his daughter-in-law are among the group. The villager spoke on condition of anonymity, saying he fears reprisals. The movement of foreign ghters to the Islamic State group has been covered extensively since the group tore across Iraq in June. The arrival of entire families, many but not all of them Turkish, has received less attention. Its about fundamentalism, said Ahmet Kasim Han, a professor of international relations at Istanbuls Kadir Has University. It kind of becomes a false heaven. Like many others, Ummi Abdullahs journey to radical Islam was born out of loneliness. Born Svetlana Hasanova, she converted to Islam after marrying Aktan six years ago. The pair met in Turkey when Hasanova, still a teenager, came to Istanbul with her mother to buy textiles. Aktan said the relation ship worked at rst. Before we were mar ried we were swimming in the sea, in the pool, and in the evening we would sit down and eat sh and drink wine, he said.Turks leave for Islamic State shelter AP PHOTOIn this Friday, Sept. 19, photo, car salesman Sahin Aktan shows a photo with his ex-wife Asiya Ummi Abdullah as he speaks during an interview at his lawyers oce in Istanbul, Turkey. LONDON (AP) They raced down the slide, one by one, like children on a playground. At the bottom, smartphone photos were snapped and high ves exchanged. The frequent iers were all smiling and laughing and quietly hoping to never use an evacuation slide again. Doing so would mean their plane had just crashed. The slide demonstration was part of a half-day safety course that encourages passengers to be aware of their surroundings and familiarize themselves with what happens in an emergency. The two dozen participants learned the best way to brace for a crash, how to open aircraft doors and why to wait until exiting a plane to inate life vests. In this day and age, everybody is so comfortable with ying, they get on planes and dont consider safety, says Andy Clubb, a safety instructor at British Airways ight training center. Started as a training exercise for oil company employees who routinely ew to remote locations, the course is now open to frequent iers willing to pay $265, although most participants are still sent by their companies. There are up to three classes a week. The class begins inside a Boeing 737 cabin simulator. Airplane seats are selected. Seatbelts are buckled. The safety demonstration begins. Just like on a real ight, nobody pays attention and these are passengers who know there is going to be a crash. The simulator rocks back and forth like taxiing, then tilts up for takeoff. Soon theatrical smoke lls the cabin and the ight attendants shout Brace. Brace. Brace. Everybodys head goes down until the evacuation order is given. Its a scramble to the nearest exit. Some passengers fare better than others. Seatbelts arent snapped off quickly enough. One woman struggles to open the emergency exit over the wing. When the smoke clears, the group sits back down and learns that six to eight passengers can go through the door in the time it takes one passenger to go through the tiny over-wing exit. Seconds count. In the simulator, anyone who hesitates gets a stern lecture. In real life, theyre pushed out the door, down the slide by a ight attendant. Clubb explains that the key to survival is getting into the proper brace position: Bend forward as far as possible, keep your head down. Place your feet at on the oor and slide them back. Your dominant hand goes on the back of your head. Protect that hand by placing the other hand over it. Do not interlock ngers. The goal is to ensure that the bones in the stronger hand arent broken so you can eventually unbuckle the seatbelt.Learning how to survive a plane crash

Always looking for new ventures, some of the same rings of Florida identity thieves long engaged in other forms of fraud are making hundreds of fake cards and taking them on the road to withdraw cash or buy goods, police say. Counterfeit cards are not new, but their use has exploded during the past two years as computer hackers steal millions of records from major retail stores and rings of thieves develop new ways to skim information from ATMs and credit card swiping machines. Anyone who uses a card to withdraw cash or buy something can become a victim. Much of this growing crime radiates from Florida, long a hub for Medicare fraud, telemar keting scams, tax-return rip-offs, investment schemes and other forms of imam. Airport security agents sometimes call Broward County sheriffs detectives to say theyve stopped a departing passenger with hundreds of apparently phony cards. Orlando police, meanwhile, are chasing scammers who stick devices into ATMs to copy account numbers, which are quickly embedded into counterfeit cards. Its all part of a growing black market that connects sophisticated hackers in places such as Russia or Ukraine to common thieves close to home. Everybodys working on it constantly to steal your credit card number because its incredibly lucrative, said Orlando Police Detective Michael Stevens. And its very difcult for us to move quickly enough to catch them. Florida serves as a headquarters for counter feit card-makers, known as carders, and of highly mobile criminal networks that use and distribute their creations. We are seeing quite a lot of people leaving Florida to go out west with counterfeit credit cards, usually to the Texas/Arizona area, said Broward sheriffs Detective Mitch Gordon. Weve seen them with a hundred cards in the same name. On the back, in the magnetic strip, there are a hundred different account numbers. The cards have been re-encoded with someone elses information. In May, Egor Shevelev, a Ukrainian online salesman, was sentenced by a federal judge in Fort Lauderdale to 14 years in prison for trafcking in more than 118,000 stolen and fraudulent credit card numbers. Prosecutors say his crime ring may have stolen as much as $59 million, but the actual loss to hundreds of victims, many in South Florida, is impossible to calculate. Orlando police are investigating other rings that use a skimming device about the size of a pinkie nger. For a price, some store clerks or restaurant cashiers have used the device to secretly copy account numbers and turn them over to identity thieves. Other devices are inserted into ATM slots to copy the numbers and nancial codes contained in the magnetic strips. The crooks then retrieve the devices or, using Wi-Fi technology from a nearby car, draw information from them into a laptop computer. Encoders are then used to transfer that information onto newly created cards. They can be blank gift cards, hotel card keys, old credit cards any thing with a magnetic strip that is new or can be overwritten. Its not illegal to possess these devices, Stevens said. Why? I have no idea. They serve no other purpose than to steal your credit cards. The credit cards are usually used to buy mer chandise that is sometimes turned over to criminals accustomed to selling stolen goods, Stevens said. Orlando police also are investigating a crime ring that uses counterfeit debit cards.Florida is fertile territory for crooks faking credit cards This Sunday in... 50474808 FLEETWOODMAC ROCKSONrfffntb bbb 50472330 Joseph H.

Attorneys for both sides strongly disagree, however, on the details of the talks and who initiated them. David Cornwell, an attorney who advises the Winston family, said in a Tuesday letter to Florida State obtained by The Associated Press that the womans former lawyer Patricia Carroll demanded $7 million in February to settle her potential claim against Winston, the university and the Tallahassee Police Department. Baine Kerr, one of the lawyers for the woman, said in a statement emailed to the AP Wednesday that Cornwell sought the settlement.

Hed just rather not be reminded about those other records he holds in golfs premier team event. Mickelson has won five majors in his career but hes also a symbol of recent U.S. failures against Europe in a competition the Americans used to dominate. Since playing in his first Ryder Cup 19 years ago, Mickelson has been on the losing side seven out of nine times. Hes won 14 of his matches, but lost a U.S. record 18 matches including a record five defeats in singles. So, he was asked by a British reporter on Wednesday, is the Ryder Cup record a blot on your resume? I wouldnt say it as eloquently as you did by calling it a blot, a smiling Mickelson said. But I think that its a record that Id like to improve on. The reporter pressed on, asking whether he was stung by the knowledge that he has lost more matches than any other American. Are you always this half empty? Mickelson said with a laugh. Is that how you look at things? Because were more optimistic here. But the numbers dont lie. And Lefty knows that. Absolutely, I would like to improve my record, he said. Thats certainly a goal. It doesnt take too much to improve my winning percentage, Ill say that.

Online: www.nhra.com CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. A grand jury on Wednesday declined to charge NASCAR driver Tony Stewart in the death of a sprint car driver at a short track in upstate New York this summer. Stewart, who reacted with the same twinge of sadness that hes carried since returning to NASCAR three weeks ago, could still face a civil lawsuit. A few hours after Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo announced the grand jurys decision in this upstate New York hamlet, the Ward family indicated in a statement read over the telephone by sister Kayla Herring that they will seek damages in the young drivers death. Our son got out of his car during caution when the race was suspended. All the other vehicles were reducing speed and not accelerating except for Stewart, who intentionally tried to intimidate Kevin by accelerating and sliding his car toward him, causing the tragedy, the family said Wednesday. The focus should be on the actions of Mr. Stewart. This matter is not at rest and we will pursue all remedies in fairness to Kevin. The family might have a difcult task. Tantillo disclosed that Ward was under the inuence of marijuana the night he died and said two differ ent videos were enhanced, frames were isolated and viewed at at least three different speeds and nally overlaid with grids and data. Both showed Stewart had done nothing wrong. The videos did not demonstrate any aber rational driving by Tony Stewart until the point of impact with Kevin Ward, at which point his vehicle veered to the right up the track as a result of the collision. Prior to that, his course was pretty straight, Tantillo said. He added that toxicology evidence from Wards autopsy indicates that at the time of operation he was under the inuence of marijuana. The levels determined were enough to impair judgment. Stewarts acknowledged the investigation was long and emotionally difcult but noted it allowed time for all the facts to be presented. This has been the toughest and most emotional experience of my life, and it will stay with me forever. Im very grateful for all the support Ive received and continue to receive, said the 43-year-old NASCAR superstar. While much of the attention has been on me, its important to remember a young man lost his life. Kevin Ward Jr.s family and friends will always be in my thoughts and prayers. David Weinstein, a former state and federal prosecutor in Miami who is not involved in the case, said the toxicology evidence will make it difcult for the Wards to win a lawsuit against Stewart. Hopefully, someone will explain to them that Kevin will be dragged through the mud during a civil trial, he said. After the results of the toxicology report and the ndings of the grand jury, the deep pockets will not be willing to settle this lawsuit so quickly.FROM WIRE REPORTS AUTO RACING: Tony StewartFamily says it will seek damages from StewartNo charges in fatal crash AP PHOTOOntario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo announces a grand jury decided against bringing criminal charges against three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart in the August death of driver Kevin Ward Jr. at a sprint car race in upstate New York. | COMMUNITY CALENDARBASEBALLPort Charlotte Little League registration: Saturday at Harold Ave. Recreation Center; 10 a.m.-noon; season starts Sept. 29.

TAMPA Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper has been a fan of Jonathan Marchessault for three years. Marchessault, then a 5-foot-9, 180-pound center for Connecticut, tormented Coopers Norfolk team in the AHL. We had one (heck) of a battle with them in the second round, and he was a big reason, Cooper said. He was a feared hockey player by us, anyway because of his ability around the net. Marchessault, 23, acquired from the Blue Jackets in March, lived up to that reputation Tuesday, scoring two goals in a 4-2 win over Nashville in the exhibition opener at Amalie Arena. It was good to come here and make a good rst impression, he said. Before the second period, Cooper inserted Marchessault on a line with skilled 21-year-old Russians C Vladislav Namestnikov and RW Nikita Kucherov, guring the right-handed shot with speed would add a good dimension. It sure did. The line combined for eight points, Namestnikov getting three assists and Kucherov a goal. The trio is expected to play together tonight in Nashville at the Predators. (Marchessault is) an unreal player, fun playing with, Namestnikov said. He sees the ice really well.Impressive start for Tampa Bays new centerBy JOE SMITHTAMPA BAY TIMES NHL: Tampa Bay

The Sun /Thursday, September 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 Im here for. It was a little break in the process of playing a full season, but Im back now. Thats really what Im focused on; just moving forward. Toles left the Stone Crabs four days after he was removed from a game in Bradenton for the way he acted. Toles declined to expand on the reasons for his absence; Rays director of minor league operations Mitch Lukevics said he did not go home for disciplinary reasons. We have over 300 play ers, and sometimes there are personal matters our players need to take care of. Theyre human beings rst and baseball players second. We need to help them in their young lives when things may come up in families, Lukevics said. Were happy that hes back. Unfortunately for Toles, his quest to return to the form that saw him named the Rays Minor League Player of the Year in 2013 took a hit a week after he returned to the eld. The outelder suffered a right pinky fracture an aggravation of an injury he suffered the year before with Class-A Bowling Green while playing for the Gulf Coast League Rays. He under went surgery at the end of August to repair it. Toles who hit .292 and stole six bases in six GCL games would have been a full participant in this months Instructional League at Charlotte Sports Complex, Lukevics said. Instead, Toles has been limited to rehab. I felt pretty good (playing in the GCL), Toles said. It was fun, but I just didnt have much bat control, because my pinky was giving me kind of the same problem. But I felt good defensively and on the bases. But, just hitting, I didnt have the top-hand control. The injury will limit the 22-year-old to hand-strengthening exercises for the time being, but he thinks hell be ready to start swinging a bat in January, giving him plenty of time to ready himself for spring training. After batting .261 with 18 stolen bases over just 46 games with the Crabs this year, hes ready to put his lost season behind him. Being away from baseball was the toughest thing, Toles said. It was just like, Man, this is what Ive been doing for a couple of years now, and this is just breaking my routine. Obviously, I was a little disappointed because I didnt get to play or do what I said I was going to do or do what I wanted to do. But, at the same time, its over now. Cant do nothing about it. So Im just looking forward to next season.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com.TOLESFROM PAGE 1 by the Tallahassee Police Department and State Attorney Willie Meggs did not press charges due to a lack of evidence. TMZ rst reported the letter had been sent to Florida State. Neither Cornwell nor Florida State immediately responded to requests for comment. The statement released by Kerr said Cornwell leaked to TMZ a self-serving letter that he had sent to Florida State, adding that the letter was full of dishonest and distorted statements at a time when Mr. Winston is suffering from the negative attention of his own continuing misconduct of last week. Kerr said Cornwell threatened to sue the woman and her parents for civil racketeering in an effort to intimidate them into staying quiet after they declined to settle. Cornwells letter said, Ms. Carroll stated, If we settle you will never hear from my client or me again in the press or anywhere. The letter also said Carroll threatened to bring in high prole Colorado lawyers if Winston did not accept the offer. Kerr and his partner John Clune are based in Boulder. Carroll released a statement Wednesday afternoon saying that based on the response from Kerr and Clune, there is no further need for me to comment, as it would be redundant. The 13-page Cornwell letter began by informing Florida State that Winston will participate and cooperate with an interview request from the univer sity. It also noted Winston has serious concerns about the false allegations and the womans motivation. Cornwell wrote that Carroll was banking on a favorable criminal investigation as a predicate to ling a civil case. The letter also repeatedly states that the woman did not le a complaint with the school for more than two years, something her lawyers have denied numerous times. The statement from Kerr said the university did not contact the woman as part of its investigation until October 2013. Kerr has said his client was always willing to cooperate. Winston looks forward to clearing his name, Cornwells letter stated. But, Mr. Winston will not walk into a honey trap.WINSTONFROM PAGE 1 WEST PALM BEACHA number of dastardly things happened to Jeff Driskel last Saturday, and by extension to Will Muschamp, too. Even more perplexing for Flor ida, not all of those things happened in Tuscaloosa. In Tallahassee, for openers, No. 1 Florida State got a 304-yard passing performance from Sean Maguire, who had known for all of four days that he would be getting his rst start against Clemson. On that same night, in Lincoln, Neb., the Miami Hurricanes lost a big game but got 359 passing yards and three touchdown throws from Brad Kaaya, a true freshman with promise. See how this is going? Other programs are developing, maximizing, even transforming the skills of their quarterbacks, which is a function of good coaching. Florida, on the other hand, seems to be regressing at the position, with Driskels disastrous day at Alabama (9 for 28 for 93 passing yards with two interceptions) all part of a larger pattern. Last year, when Driskel was lost for the season with a September injury, Muschamp had no trustworthy backups ready to go. By November, the Gators were down to Skyler Mornhinweg, a former scout-team quarterback who was permitted to throw 13 passes in a 19-14 loss to South Carolina. The game plan devolved that day into handoffs on thirdand-long and hope for Gamecock turnovers. Athletic director Jeremy Foley didnt hire Muschamp for his offensive wizardry, of course, but three different offensive coordinators havent exactly solved the problem, either. New coordinator Kurt Roper, formerly the play-caller at Duke, has the best chance of succeeding. He came to Florida with a plan to fashion an offense to the dual skills of Driskel, a junior, as a passer and a runner. Against No. 3 Alabama, it was a bust. Against Tennessee, the Gators next opponent on Oct. 4, it had better not be. These Florida fans grew up, remember, on the Fun N Gun of Steve Spurrier. Next came Urban Meyer, who at one point elded a national championship team so loaded at quarter back that Tim Tebow came off the bench every now and then as a bonus. Now comes the 2014 Grunt N Punt offense, a 2 of 13 disaster on third down against Alabama. Cant contend for the SEC East title that way. Cant convince anybody that the program is building steam, which more than anything else will be the minimum requirement for Muschamp to keep his job. The list goes on, meanwhile, of other coaching staffs that are taking the quarterbacks theyve got and making the most of todays spread-offense scoring frenzy. A couple of those success stories even involve players who once were at Florida, which doesnt do Muschamp any good either. Jacoby Brissett transferred to North Carolina State a few years back when it became clear that Driskel always would be the Gators rst choice. Four starts into his new life at Raleigh, he leads the ACC in completion percentage (69.7) and touchdown passes (10) and the Wolfpack are 4-0. Also, theres Tyler Murphy at Boston College. He went 2-4 last year as the Gators starter after Driskel was lost for the season with a broken leg. At BC, however, Murphy helped pull off an upset of Southern Cal a few weeks back. Were not talking about Heisman Trophy winners here, just good athletes who are being taught to lead. Blake Sims ts that bill. Hes a senior who had to wait forever for A.J. McCarron to graduate before he ever was going to get a chance to start at Alabama, but Sims threw for 445 yards and four touchdowns against the Gators on Saturday, the second-largest passing total in Crimson Tide history. Nick Saban, Muschamps old boss, called running plays only in the nal 8:34 or it would have been worse. Thats the closest any rival will come to taking it easy on the Florida coach. The rest is up to Muschamp, and whatever still can be made of Driskel. COLLEGE FOOTBALL: CommentaryAP PHOTOFlorida quarterback Je Driskels struggles have magnied the Gators regression at the position.Other QBs soar as Driskel struggles By DAVE GEORGECOX NEWSPAPERS Muschamp sticks with DriskelGAINESVILLE (AP) After arguably the worst game of his college career, quarterback Jeff Driskel remains Floridas starter. At least for another game. Coach Will Muschamp said Wednesday hes sticking with Driskel for next weeks game at Tennessee, saying the fourthyear junior gives us the best opportunity to win right now. Jeff needs to play better. He understands that, Muschamp said. He certainly forced some things that we cant afford to do. Driskel completed 9 of 28 passes for 93 yards, with a touchdown and two interceptions, in a 42-21 loss at Alabama on Saturday. He was particularly ineffective on deep passes, misfiring on 14 of 16 throws that went at least 10 yards. It was the sixth time in his last seven starts that Driskel failed to play turnover-free football. DAVIE Ryan Tannehill plans to take the rst snap on offense Sunday for the Dolphins against the Oakland Raiders, at least temporarily putting an end to questions about Miamis quarterback situation. Coach Joe Philbin hasnt said Tannehill would be the starter but the thirdyear quarterback insisted that where he stands has been made clear to him. He has taken all of the snaps with the rst team. Ive been preparing to play Oakland in London and to go out there and win, said Tannehill, who has completed just 56.5 percent of his passes and ranks 29th in the NFL in passer rating at 74.1. Im taking the rst snap of the game and playing the game. Philbins approach has created a distraction in the locker room, and Tannehill said that was an issue and was not a good feeling for him. But Tannehill said he under stood Philbins handling of the situation, and remains condent in his abilities and the potential of Miamis offense. Obviously, it doesnt feel good. It creates a bunch of stir and a bunch of distraction in the locker room, mostly from the outside coming in, Tannehill said. Just guys having to deal with the distraction of it, its not a good feeling but hes been clear with me and I know where I stand. I dont know how it rst came to me. I think I received some texts from basically everyone Ive ever known offering me support, which is a good thing I guess, and then coach came to me. Backup quarterback Matt Moore conrmed that nothing has changed with his role and that he has not taken a snap with the rst team since training camp. Glennon gets chance vs. Steelers: With starter Josh McCown unlikely to play this week against Pittsburgh, second-year backup Mike Glennon practiced with the No. 1 offense in preparation for the Steelers. Its the second straight season Glennon has been thrust into the starting lineup following an 0-3 start, although the circumstances are different this time. McCown sprained the thumb on his throwing hand during last Thursdays 56-14 loss at Atlanta. As a rookie a year ago, Glennon came off the bench after Josh Freeman struggled and fell out of favor with former coach Greg Schiano. As usual, coach Lovie Smith had little to say about injuries and possible lineup changes, including who will lead the offense against Pittsburgh (2-1). Its a good chance it will be Mike Glennon. Josh is improving, the coach said. I like to stay with my standard way of doing things, not talking about starting lineups for the opponent. But Mike took the reps today. Hows that? Also on Wednesday, the Bucs signed defensive end T.J. Fatinikun, linebacker Shayne Skov and fullback Ian Thompson to the practice squad. Fatinikun and Thompson each spent the 2014 preseason with the Bucs before being waived prior to the final roster cuts. NFLPA to investigate Rice case: The NFL and NFLPA agreed to push back Ray Rices appeal of his indefinite suspension after the union announced plans to conduct its own investigation. The NFLPA hired former federal prosecutor Richard Craig Smith, the head of regulatory and governmental investigation at the firm of Norton Rose Fulbright, to conduct an investigation surrounding the due process, discipline, facts and conduct of the league office and the Baltimore Ravens that led to Rices indefinite suspension. ESPN suspends Simmons: ESPN suspended Bill Simmons for three weeks after he repeatedly called NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a liar during a profane tirade on a podcast released Tuesday. He said he thought Goodell lied about not knowing what was on a security video that showed former Ravens running back Ray Rice hitting his wife in an elevator. Simmons is the editor of the sports web site Grantland, which is owned by ESPN. He also appears on ESPNs NBA studio shows. Around the league: Minnesota Vikings quarterback Matt Cassels season is over. He was placed on injured reserve with multiple frac tures in his left foot. Rookie first-round pick Teddy Bridgewater is preparing for his first NFL start Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. He completed 12 of 20 passes for 150 yards last week. ... The Houston Texans placed defen sive tackle Louis Nix on season-ending injured reserve with a knee injury.

Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, September 25, 2014 Boston handles sloppy Rays BOSTON Even though the meaning was long since removed, there had been nights this month when the Tampa Bay Rays played the kind of games they considered reflective of their talent and indicative of potential. And then there was Wednesday. In a game that notably sloppy and slow-paced, the Rays lost 11-3 to the Red Sox, ending their slim hopes of finishing with a .500 record by winning out as they dropped to 76-82. There were a number of lowlights as the game lasted more than 312 hours: Rookie catcher Curt Casali, a late addition to the lineup, sustained a concussion that will end his season after being hit by a foul tip and helped off the field. Starter Jake Odorizzi put a bad finish on what had been a good first full major-league season by lasting only three-plus innings and falling one strikeout shy of Matt Moores team rookie record that seemed certain to fall. And outfielder Wil Myers slipped on first base and face-planted on the dirt, though stayed in the game. But the lowest had to be the sixth inning, when the Rays allowed four runs on just one hit. Two runs scored on a bases loaded walk one on ball four, the other as the ball got past Jose Molina, whose throw then eluded pitcher Steve Geltz at the plate.

New York was eliminated from playoff contention Wednesday, wasting a three-run lead in a 9-5 loss to Nelson Cruz and the AL East champion Baltimore Orioles. The Yankees (81-77) missed the playoffs in consecutive years for the rst time since 1992 and The only other time New York did not play in the postseason during in the retiring captains 20-season big league career was in 2008. Its tough, Jeter said. Its what you play for. Its a rough feeling. Phillies 2, Marlins 1: In Miami, Kyle Kendrick pitched seven innings, had three hits and drove in a run, Jonathan Papelbon closed in his first appearance since being suspended and Philadelphia beat the Marlins. Brewers 5, Reds 0: In Cincinnati, Kyle Lohse made the most of another wasted day for Milwaukees offense, throwing a two-hitter and driving in a run for a win that fore stalled elimination from the playoffs. Braves 6, Pirates 2: In Atlanta, Andrew McCutchen homered for Pittsburghs only runs, and the Pirates stumbled in their chase for the NL Central title. Indians 6, Royals 4: In Cleveland, Yan Gomes hit a three-run homer, Michael Brantley got three more hits and the Indians stayed in the AL wild-card chase with a win over Kansas City. Tigers 6, White Sox 1: In Detroit, Justin Verlander pitched eight innings as the Tigers rallied after benches cleared in the sixth inning to beat Chicago. Blue Jays 1, Mariners 0: In Toronto, Mark Buehrle pitched eight shutout innings to reach 200 innings for the 14th consecutive season, Ryan Goins drove in the only run of the game and the Blue Jays pushed Seattle closer to playoff elimination. Angels 5, Athletics 4: In Oakland, Calif., Howie Kendrick doubled and drove in three runs, and AL West champion Los Angeles held off the playoff-hopeful Athletics. Twins 2, Diamondbacks 1: In Minneapolis, Phil Hughes set a single-season major league record with an 11.63 strikeout-to-walk ratio (186 strikeouts and 16 walks) as Minnesota beat Arizona.A lost season in Jeters last MLB ROUNDUPYankees miss playoffs for only 5th time in his career BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WILD CARD GLANCEAMERICAN LEAGUE W L Pct GB Kansas City 86 72 .544 Oakland 86 72 .544 Seattle 83 75 .525 3 Cleveland 82 77 .522 4 Wednesdays results L.A.

He hasnt required a captains pick once. Its 20 years of Ryder Cups, I just cant believe it, Mickelsons teammate Keegan Bradley said. Its amazing because you have to stay healthy, youve got to stay sharp with your game. Its going to be tough for somebody to do that. Youve got to be super consistent for 20 years, which is almost impossible. Mickelson and Bradley are expected to line up again together in Fridays opening matches. They teamed up to go 3-0 two years ago in Medinah, where Europe overcame a 10-6 deficit after the first two days to win 14-13 Im going to play again with Keegan, Mickelson said. I dont think Im letting go of any secrets here. Weve played together these first few rounds and we seem to have a good partnership, and he brings out some of my best golf. Neither Mickelson nor Bradley has won a tour nament this year. But the two feed off each other when it comes to the Ryder Cup. Bradley said he has been exchanging regular text messages with Mickelson, sending him video highlights of their matches together. We just keep telling each other that theres no one wed rather be out there with than each other, Bradley said. Mickelson went out of his way to play up the Europeans as big favorites on home soil, suggesting the U.S. will have to play its best just to keep close, let alone win. The last time the U.S. won on the road was in 1993 at The Belfry. Were here without Tiger Woods, Mickelson said. Were without Dustin Johnson. Were without Jason Dufner. And were playing a team that has players like McIlroy and (Henrik) Stenson who have played just incredible golf over the years. ... We have not won here in 20 years. Weve got a team that is a heavy underdog and the expectations certainly arent high. ... We need to play our best golf to make it a close match. Yet, Mickelson couldnt resist a playful dig at his opponents. Asked whether the Americans were not as closely knit as the Europeans, he replied: Well, not only are we able to play together, we also dont litigate against each other. That was a reference to the lawsuit involving McIlroy and Graeme McDowell. McIlroy is suing his former management company. McDowell, represented by the same company, has been dragged into the case. I couldnt resist, Mickelson said.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, September 25, 2014 NORTH PORT Imagine School has taken its share of lumps as it works to get a sustainable volleyball program. While the Sharks have yet to win a match this season, outside/middle hitter Carlee Kovalevski said there is plenty to be optimistic about. Kovalevski is a threeyear starter and team leader as a junior, and said she can see marked improvement in the program compared with years past, much of that simply because the girls have competed together for at least three years. Our strength is our bond, she said. We know each other really well and we communicate well, so that helps us in our all-around game whether its passing or calling for a ball or knowing where each other is on the court. It helps us a lot. This year, the team will graduate the schools rst seniors and is forced to look beyond the season already. Kovalevski said the Sharks plan to use younger players (the team elds several seventhand eighth-graders) to attract future talent. We have some younger girls but we spent time with them in the preseason getting them up to speed and now, each time we grow, were growing together. We want to be able to use that. This year after our season is over were going to start a program for the elementary girls. We want to get a big volleyball family going here, so theyre always playing. Tarpons roll in first tourney: Charlotte finished second in the the Riverdale Tournament this past weekend, losing only to BarronCollier in the finals. The Tarpons defeated Palmetto Ridge, Oasis and Community School of Naples. Outside hitter Marissa Beisner led Charlotte with 34 kills, 40 digs and 3 aces over the four matches. Beisner and setter Jessica Moore earned tourney MVP honors, the latter collecting 89 assists and 40 digs. Hailey Whitehead and Mykelli Taylor had 20 and 18 kills, respectively, and Maddie Foley added 12. Kaylee Brannon had 47 digs and Jesse Valerius added 32. I was really proud of our girls, Charlotte coach Michelle Dill said. It was not only our first tournament, but we were playing teams who were muscular, and around 6 feet. The Tarpons host the Gene Gorman Invitational on Oct. 11. Hey, dont I know you?, Part II: Port Charlottes Hope and Faith Price felt more than at home against Venice this week, as the senior twin sisters transferred from the Indians school before this school year. On Tuesday, Hope led the offense in the loss with six kills, and Faith had 10 assists and a block. They are just amazing kids, said Indians coach Brian Wheatley, after the match. Theyve grown up with (my team) so it was nice to see them tonight. I always support all of my girls in whatever they want to do, and I wish (the Price sisters) and their family nothing but the best.Sharks seek program sustainability PREP VOLLEYBALL NOTEBOOKBy DAWN KLEMISHSUN CORRESPONDENT DONT MISS THESE GAMESLemon Bay, North Port and Port Charlotte will each compete in the Estero Invitational on Saturday.

NORTH PORT The Charlotte High School girls cross country team is quietly putting together a strong season. Overshadowed locally by the early success of North Port and Lemon Bay, who both went to states last season, the Tarpons have two top-10 nishes already this year. Were kind of under the radar, but thats where I want us to be, Charlotte coach Chris Robishaw said. We all know that if we keep working hard every week and keep improving little-by-little, we have a lot of potential. Junior Erin Roche stepped up as the teams No. 2 runner, behind senior Michaela Flowers, early on with two top-10 nishes. On Saturday at the North Port Invitational, freshman Brittney Smith overtook the No. 2 spot by running a personal-best 22:10.2. Robishaw hopes the intrasquad competition will motivate his runners to continue improving. All ve starters set personal-bests at North Port. They race Saturday at the SWFL Festival in Fort Myers. Lemon Bay Invitational moved to middle school: Saturdays Lemon Bay Invitational will be held at L.A. Ainger Middle School in Rotonda due to construction at Lemon Bay High School. Manta Rays coach Tom Trealout expects the course to be one of the fastest his team competes at this season. He said there are less turns than the previous years course, and he expects similar times to last weeks North Port Invitational. Fisher needs competition: Port Charlotte senior Tyler Fisher is still trying to get his time to less than 16 minutes and has another opportunity to do so on a fast course at the Lemon Bay Invitational on Saturday. The problem for Fisher, though, is that hes not sure there will be enough elite competition there to push him throughout the race. I havent decided if Im gonna run it as a race, or gonna run it as a workout, Fisher said Saturday.Low-key Tarpon girls enjoy success PREP CROSS COUNTRY NOTEBOOKBy ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER Mantas Cattermole commits to LouisvilleBy ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITERLemon Bay High School senior Sophie Cattermole announced Wednesday that she verbally committed to swim at Louisville. On my recruiting trip I felt like I was part of the team already, Cattermole said. Coach Arthur (Albiero) and the rest of the coaching staff understood where I want my swimming career to go, and I feel like I will reach my next level of potential while swimming for them. I couldnt be anymore pleased with my decision. Cattermole, who trains year-round with the Sarasota YMCA Sharks club, won the 200 individual medley at the Class 2A state championships last season and took second in the 100 freestyle. She holds all of the Manta Rays individual records and is a member of two of the schools record-holding relay teams. Louisville, which is now a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, won six Big East Conference womens swimming championships since Albiero took over in 2004. The Cardinals placed 15th at last years NCAA championships. Cattermoles other nalists were Missouri, Iowa and Alabama.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@sun-herald.com. PREP SWIMMING: Lemon BayProgress pleases coachBy ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITERPUNTA GORDA A few good weeks of practice have raised already-high expectations for the Charlotte High School swim team. Coach Jeff Cain said the Tarpons, who placed sixth at the Class 3A state meet last season and return ve state qualiers plus an alternate, are way ahead of where they were at this time last year. Were trying to stay even-keeled with how we think and its still a ways away and we have a lot of work to get done, but were denitely ahead of where we were last year, Cain said. Theres still the same powerhouses out there that we have to face, but wed like to make the top three. Those powerhouses include Belen Jesuit and Gainesville, which took the top two spots in Class 3A with 249 points and 240 points, respectively. Charlotte will see where it stacks up with last years third-place nisher, Venice, during a dual meet Wednesday at South County Regional Park. Cain had hoped to gain some clarity about his postseason lineups Wednesday, but lightning cancelled a home meet against Sarasota. We wanted to see some things, Cain said. I had the lineup mixed up. Short-distance swimmers were going long-distance, freestylers were doing the IM. I wanted to see other scenarios, for relays and everything. Our relays are not decided for whos gonna be out there in (districts). The Tarpons have three meets left in the regular season: the Venice dual, the county championships on Oct. 4 and the tri-county championships on Oct. 11. Cain said Charlotte probably will not make up the Sarasota dual or the Port Charlotte dual suspended by bad weather two weeks ago. PREP SWIMMING: Charlotte that we were seeing in practice for the two weeks weve been doing it, it was like, Oh my God. Youre going to break an arm, Halbert said, laughing. They were just holding back tonight to get it in (bounds). But it was still better than it was before. Senior Aspen Davidson led the team with eight aces. Samantha Tennant added three aces, and Alexis Mootz, Kylie Bell and Allie Moreno each added two. Once we got one in, it was like, Wait, we can do this in a game, too, Halbert said. So they had some condence. North Port cruised to a two-game lead before Braden River won Game 3 and took a 19-16 lead in Game 4. But the Bobcats closed on a 9-2 run, scoring their 24th point on a Tennant ace and clinching the match with a block from Davidson and Brenna Matthews. That resolve in a pressure situation prompted Halbert to say Wednesdays match was her teams best perfor mance this season. Theyre No. 2 in our district right now, so its almost like, I dont know if we can, Halbert said of the Pirates. But we didnt think, Weve got to win, weve got to win. We came in tonight and said, Lets just hit these spots. And the win happened. Davidson led North Port with 15 kills, 18 digs and a team-high tying three blocks. Matthews added 11 kills, and Mootz dished out a team-high 20 assists. Halbert expects plenty more serving competitions in practice. Probably every day, Halbert said. They get into it.BOBCATSFROM PAGE 1SUN PHOTO BY KATHERINE GODINANorth Ports Samantha Tennant bumps the ball during Wednesdays home match against Braden River.

For the rst year in a decade, massive schools of juvenile blue tilapia have been thick in the lower reaches of the Peace River (and at least as far as Fishermens Village, according to Capt. Ralph Allens column on page 10). This food source has not gone unnoticed, and tarpon from 10 to 200 pound have been gulping them down in a free-for-all. The epicenter of this action seems to be the Harbor Heights boat ramp. Everyone knows that when youve got a hot bite and the sh are focused on a single food source, the best bet is to match the hatch. So its no surprise that some of the best reports are coming from guys who are throwing a castnet on the tilapia and then tossing them right back out. But in this case, theres a y in the ointment. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission does not look kindly on the use of non-native sh as live bait. Under current law, only two exotic species fathead minnows and variable platies are legal to use as live bait. The reasoning is that when you have exotic sh around water, you might accidentally drop one (or a whole bucketful) into the water, creating a potential new popula tion that could become a problem. Tilapia are not a native species, and therefore using them as live bait is illegal. To adhere to the letter of the law, you must kill a tilapia before putting it out for a tarpon to eat. Some folks have it in their heads that this law applies to fresh water only, but thats not true. Its just as illegal to drop a live tilapia down for a grouper as it is to use it for bass bait. The intent of the law is to prevent the spread of exotics something most of us would agree is a good and necessary thing. But the act it outlaws, at least in this case, does no harm. We all know there are already tilapia in the river thats the whole point of wanting to use them as bait! To make the situation more confusing, the FWC simultaneously bans and advocates the use of live tilapia as bait. On their website at http://bit. ly/1rmBA2l, theres this passage talking about good snook bait: If you cant nd sardines or thread herring, tilapia, mojarras, killishes, or small grunts will work ne. So whats an angler to do? Well, you can do what everyone else is doing and break the law. Your chances of getting caught (or getting cited if you do get caught) are probably statistically zero. Even if you are ticketed, you have a ready defense: I was shing for snook in a manner suggested to me by the FWC website. Or you can obey the law, in which case I suggest putting your bait under a oat. Itll probably work almost as well. And then, if you care, write or call the FWC and tell them that stupid regulations like this are more than just annoying. They also help turn law-abiding anglers into scoaws. Why should it be illegal to use Mayan cichlids as bass bait in a canal that is lled with millions of them? Or to use jewel cichlids to catch warmouth? Or tilapia for tarpon? Heres a law that would make sense: No using exotic species for live bait except in the same body of water where they were caught. Simple and eective. Youre already allowed to transport them alive in this part of the state because everyone knows that theyre already here, so why not make them legal as bait? And for that matter, why is it OK to use platies as live bait? These sh, readily available in pet shops, are prolic breeders that bear live young. They would directly compete with a number of small native shes such as sailn mollies and killi sh (both of which make ne bait, by the way). You can contact Thomas Graef, FWC Southwest Regional Director, at Thomas.Graef@MyFWC.com or 863-648-3200. Or send a snail mail letter to 3900 Drane Field Road, Lakeland, FL 33811-1207.P.S. I was hoping to get a photo of a tarpon to go with this column. Unfortunately, I have not been able to get out and experience this particular awesomeness, despite several invitations (thank you to Capts. Dave Stephens, Josh Greer and Chuck Terrell for the attempts). So I stole a pic that Capt. Allen sent me for his column. Its a good thing he sent three.

Rough weather has kept the grouper anglers closer to home, but there are plenty of mangrove snapper and catch-and-release snapper and catch-and-release snapper Goliaths on the nearshore reefs. Tarpon season is still on. The bite is hot on the lower Peace River from the Nav-A-Gator to the I-75 bridges. Theyre eating baby tilapia. Throw a DOA Bait Buster or tilapia imitation, or castnet some tilapia and use them dead. Chum pretty much any at with live whitebait and watch the redsh come alive. Youll also bring in some big trout and lots of ladysh Some big jacks have been caught in the backcountry.

Page 8 September 25, 2014 Last time we wrote about the perils of boating in our local waters, specically running aground. You might think it will not happen to you. While its true that with adequate preparation and knowledge, the chances can be diminished, never say never. Planning where you will be boating, studying the charts and depths, maybe even ling a oat plan with a friend, especially if you are new to the area are all good ideas. The water is calm with minimal chance of storms in the forecast, and youre heading out to open water with visions of a cooler full of sh dancing in your head. But things can and do change quickly. Ah, a perfect day, until Uh-oh! You have come to a sudden and complete stop, or you have struck something and are possibly aground. At this point, your response needs to be methodical and properly thought out. Hopefully everyone has had their life jackets on since leaving the dock; if not, now is the time for that action. Whether you just struck bottom with your engine or you have in fact run aground, you need to thoroughly evaluate the situation. First, is everyone aboard OK? If not, do they need emergency help or will simple onboard rst aid suce? If injuries warrant, radio or call for help quickly. The next step is assessing any damage to the boat. If it was an engine or prop strike, lower an anchor, turn the engines o, raise them out of the water and inspect for any rudder or prop damage. If none is visible and the engine runs, you might be able to move slowly and safely into deeper water. If, indeed, your hull has come to rest on a sand or mud bar, you must begin assessing any possible damage to the hull by inspecting for incoming water, especially at the lowest accessible covers. If you suspect hull damage, call for help immediately and stay put, as any attempt to move may enlarge the hole and sink your vessel. Its also a good idea to have an abandon-ship plan and review it with your passengers. Educate yourself on the dierence between salvage and a tow operation. Lacking an understanding of this could be extremely expensive. More on that topic in the future! No damage? Lucky you. Now, how do you get back underway? Please, do not just put it into reverse and gun it, even if your hull is intact and the bilge remains dry. This action could force more material under the hull and possibly send mud or sand into your engine, causing additional damage. If you have an incoming tide and the weather is clear, you may just decide to wait for the tide to lift you o. (Hint: Check the tide tables and weather forecast before you leave the dock.) You may be able to shift passengers and cargo to the stern and oat the boat o. If that doesnt work, theres always pushing. If this is necessary, be careful about getting into the water. Youll need proper footwear. Being aware of what is in the water is also a good idea. Oyster-shell slices, stingray barbs or jellysh stings will make the situation much worse. As with most things in life, avoidance of an adverse event is preferable. Your local Peace River Sail and Power Squadron oers classes and seminars that will help you become a better informed and safer boater. Many of the courses oered are also available online, but youll miss out on the opportunity to gain the experience of local boaters and learn from the mistakes of others which is cheaper and a lot less stressful than learning from your own.Mark and his wife Leigh Ann are longtime boaters and active members in the Peace River Sail and Power Squadron.

Page 9 September 25, 2014 A day off is a day on the waterNo real estate appointments in the morning. What? A day o? Time to call three of my buddies for a short-notice shing trip. Only two can make it; that makes four on the boat including my middle son. Thats ne, at least theres help on the fuel. Hit the boat ramp at daylight with a box of squid, a cooler full of drinks, ice and a smile. Flying out of the pass as the sun is just peeking over the eastern horizon and the fog is disappearing o the top of the water. Listen to those twin Yamahas purr. Man, its going to be a great day. Twelve miles out and the birds are hammering. Do we stop and troll, throw some silver spoons? Nope. On a mission. Fifteen miles out and we stop for 20 minutes and catch a few squirrelsh for bait; when we have a dozen or so were o again. Pass the 18-mile mark and no cellphone reception. Yes!! We arrive at the rst spot, 28 miles out. Barracuda circling everywhere. Its going to be interesting getting anything to the top without it being hit. Whats that under the cuda? Amberjack, aka reef donkeys, every where. Oh, yeah its on now. Drop the rst squirrelsh down, then the second, then the third: Nothing, nothing, and nothing. They wont even look. Aw, man, this is awful. Get a bright idea to drop the bait pole down with a small piece of squid and see whats on the bottom. Immediately pull up a frisky little grunt and throw it on the Avet two-speed, start letting out line and boom! Gets hit hard and fast. The drag is screaming. Fish on! Ten minutes later and a big amberjack is photographed and released. Drop the bait pole down again and hook another grunt. Didnt even get it up to the boat and I saw the AJ hit it. Bait pole down again, and again, nally have enough bait for all of us. In no time we have a triple on amberjack. Talk about complete chaos! Drags screaming, men screaming, (not me of course), sh opping oh, what fun! By noon we had released a couple dozen, felt like 100. We were at the point that our arms were literally shaking from fatigue and could not reel anymore. Back at the boat ramp by 2 p.m. and showing waterfront homes that evening. Customers ask if shing is any good around here. Well, let me tell you This is one of the many reasons why we love to sell real estate here in Southwest Florida. The housing market is no longer upside down. Home values are increasing and local busi nesses are starting to thrive again. The long, cold winters are driving northerners down in droves to see what the housing market in this area has to oer and they like what they see and want a piece for themselves. Charlotte Harbor has been recognized as one of the best sailing harbors in the world. We have some of the greatest shing in the country, entertainment, live music, and the beautiful beaches are endless. How could anyone not love our job? Selling homes at fantastic prices, and introducing people to one of the most beautiful and friendly places in Florida and did we mention the shing?Mark Davison and Ryan Boley are Realtors with Keller Williams Peace River Partners.

A: Red on the right and you are returning. Green and you are going. I just say to myself red, right, return and green, Gulf or go. Q: Can some of the local clubs and entertainment venues be accessed by water? A: Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte are both waterfront communities with plenty of waterfront activities, oering restaurants that are easily accessible by boat, to yacht clubs, shing clubs, etc. Q: What does the term sailboat water mean? A: Certain canals are labeled or advertised as sailboat water. That means they do not have bridges blocking access to the Harbor and are usually deeper to accommodate a sailboats keel. Q: Do all area canals feed into the Harbor and have Gulf access? A: No, many do not, and its not always easy to tell which do and which dont. This is one reason you should buy waterfront property from a waterfront specialist. Photo providedMore fun than you can shake a stick at. 21841 E DGEWATER DR.

Page 10 September 25, 2014 WaterLine photos by Ralph AllenA school of tiny tilapia swim in the Fishermens Village yacht basin.Anglers who frequent the estuaries along Floridas Gulf Coast know to pay attention to stingrays on the ats, particularly when the disc-shaped creatures are on the prowl in search of food. As stingrays grub along the bottom, they often ush crabs, shrimp, small sh and other hidden prey from hiding places among blades of seagrass or in the sediment. In Charlotte Harbor its not unusual for redsh, cobia, jacks, pompano and other predatory sh to follow stingrays, hoping for an easy meal when the small stu bolts from concealment. Redsh and cobia will often position themselves right on a stingrays back. This doesnt seem to bother the stingrays and gives the red or cobia a great vantage point for spotting and pouncing upon the eeing prey. Last week I experienced a stingray rst. I was walking the seawall along a canal o Crystal River when it happened. A bit of back ground: Crystal River, like other rivers in the region, contains numerous freshwater springs which pump tremendous amounts of clear, fresh water into the estuaries. Saltwater sh from the nearby Gulf regularly enter the rivers and travel upstream into completely fresh water. As a result, its common to encounter snook, redsh, sheepshead and a number of other saltwater species sharing habitat with bass, bluegill and stumpknockers. The likeli hood of seeing these unusual mixes of species sharing digs in the clear, spring-fed water (along with the numerous manatees which also frequent the same rivers) attracts tourists to such places as Homossassa River State Park, where viewing platforms have been erected for observation and photography. On the day of my stingray rst, it was not photography opportunities that had attracted me to the canal it was catching sh. Armed with an ultralight spinning rod and a trusty Beetle Spin, I was searching for bass and pansh when I noticed a stingray grubbing along the bottom, disturbing a cloud of silt as it worked. I ipped the tiny Beetle Spin across the preoccupied ray, and as the lure drew near the roiled sediments I was rewarded with a hookup. It wasnt a huge sh, but the 3-pound largemouth bass was a handful on 4-pound line. There cant be too many places where you can catch a bass o a stingray. In a scenario thats opposite of that described above, sometimes the sh that we regard as freshwater species move into waters which are more frequently inhabited by saltwater types. Tilapia are an example of a freshwater sh which do have the ability to survive in water thats somewhat salty. For example, the canal behind my house in Punta Gorda is tidal, and plenty of oysters and barna cles grow on the seawall and on dock pilings. In spite of the salty water, tilapia frequent the canal and they even build huge, crater-shaped nests along the seawall. A few days ago I saw something Id never seen before, and it only lasted one day. In the boat basin at Fishermens Village, there were schools of small baitsh working nervously among the pilings. Periodically their nervous wanderings were interrupted by bouts of chaos as the resident snook and marauding schools of jacks tore into the hapless little guys, loudly blasting them in frothy whitewater explosions. Its not too rare for schools of bait to enter the marina, but usually they are threadns, menhaden or nger mullet. On this particular day there were dozens of schools of bait in the marina, each school containing hundreds of small sh. I could see that they were about 4 inches in length but I couldnt identify them, so I got a net and caught a few. Turns out that they were juvenile tilapia, and they were shoaling on the surface by the thousands. They were only in the basin on that one day, the rst time Id ever seen this behavior. I did talk to a Port Charlotte resident whod seen the same thing in his canal, so apparently the shoals of tilapia were working down both banks of the Peace River. Go gure. Lets go shing!Capt.

Page 11 September 25, 2014 WaterLine photo by Josh OliveCapt. Bart Marx says this isnt his secret snook jig, but it will probably work.Actually, they never went anywhere. They just fell out of fashion (yes, shermen are just as susceptible to fashion trends as high-class French women). Anglers who are more focused on catching sh than on the latest trends have been using them all along and theyve been catching a whole bunch on these super simple lures. But now the pendulum is swinging back, and more shermen are suddenly realizing that bucktails are great lures. Snook and pompano shermen in particular have really started using them more this year. The laughing face green ghost is a favorite of the snook crowd, but its hardly the only choice. Bucktail jigs are one of the rst types of lures ever made. There isnt a lot to them: Just a jighead with a skirt of deer hair or mylar. Or, to look at it another way, its a deer-hair y weighted to use with casting or spinning tackle. Either way, theyre easy to make and extremely versatile. Oh, and theyre absolutely deadly on just about any sh that swims. Using a bucktail is about as easy as making one. All you need to do is move it and pause it in some sort of pattern. Hop, pause, hop, hop pause. When you twitch or hop it, the hair streams out behind the weight. When you pause, it ares out. The change between streaming and aring is what makes a bucktail look alive. Thats all there is to it. But think for a second. Simple as it is, there are innite ways to vary how you retrieve a bucktail, depending on conditions and your target species. When the water is hot or cold and the sh dont want to chase a fast-moving lure, slow it down. Natural hair is very sensitive to subtle movements, and you can dance a bucktail across the bottom very slowly while still imparting a lot of attention-getting action. Then there are those times when you need to get some speed going. No problem: Reel faster and twitch faster. Heres a scenario: Youre on the Burnt Store bar and theres a school of mackerel working in 8 feet of water. Youre casting a bucktail to them, burning it back in to get them to hit it, and youre putting a few in the cooler. Suddenly your buddy shouts, Redsh! You look toward shore to see a massive push over the grassat. You abandon the macks and maneuver to where the reds are headed. Theyre coming fast. Fortunately, you dont need to change lures just techniques. Cast your bucktail to a pothole in front of them and just creep-hop it along the sand. The rst sh to spot it will inhale it. Its easy to cover the entire water column with a bucktail. Just change your retrieve speed: Fast for the top layer, slow for the bottom, and in between for well, for the in between. You can also troll them. A tandem bucktail on 80or 100-pound mono is one of the most incredible Spanish mackerel rigs to ever hit the water. And for those occasions when you need to cover them all, bucktails are perfect for vertical jigging. Dropping one next to a bridge piling is a time-honored snook method. Need more versatility? OK. You can change the prole, action and sink rate of any bucktail by adding a soft plastic lure to the hook. The plastic will interfere to some degree with the hairs swimming action, but thats not always a bad thing, especially when you consider how much action a plastic tail can add. Certain combinations have become almost standard: Add a 7to 12-inch dark plastic worm for cobia. Add a Horny Toad or other frog imitation for freshwater bass. Add a big grub tail for grouper. The options are limitless. Want to add some scent appeal? Deer hair holds most liquid scents very well (almost too well, if youre a Pro-Cure fan). Or you can add a chunk or strip of natural bait. Fish belly, squid, shrimp they all work. One caveat: If youre shing for reef species (snapper, grouper, amberjack, etc.), be sure to use a circle hook bucktail if youre using natural bait. Thats the law. The simple bucktail is the polar opposite of todays hottest lures, many of which focus on an extremely realistic look. Thats great, and those lures do catch sh, but a bucktail does something only a few other lures can do: It looks like something alive in the water. It may not be very impressive sitting on the shelf, but thats not really what counts, is it? These lures will catch any predatory sh, salt or fresh, deep or shallow.

Page 12 September 25, 2014 Hey, shooters! I know some of you who like trap or skeet shooting feel kind of neglected because most of my columns tend to deal more with handgun shooting. Sorry about that, but have I got something for you. While reading my new copy of Garden & Gun magazine, I ran across a shooting subject that caught my attention. It was titled Skeet on Steroids and dealt with a type of shooting Id never heard of before called helice (say hell-EES). It is a relatively new thing in the United States but has been popular in Europe since the s as a replacement for live pigeon shoots. Apparently helice has caught on in Texas, and theres even an organization there specializing in the sport the U.S. Helice Association. Now yall are aware that a clay pigeon is a whole lot easier to hit than a wild bird. I love wild quail or snipe hunting, and this sport is reputed to be the next closest thing to shooting at wild birds. The actual target is called a ZZ bird. When its red from the launcher, it comes out at great speed and swoops, utters, and zings o in totally unex pected directions just like a live bird would do. One of the shooters interviewed described it as shooting at the illegitimate child of a mourning dove and a wild bobwhite quail. A ZZ bird is composed of a round plastic cap axed to a two-winged propeller. On the target launcher itself an oscillating motor spins the ZZ birds at an incredible 5,000 revolutions per minute as they are launched. Apparently the spinning disk will pick up every little breath of wind and change direction, moving left, right, up and down at random. It is very, very fast you only have about a second to make a shot and you can forget about follow-up shots. The course is arranged in a similar way to what we used to call box bird shooting, with the launchers in boxes arranged in a semicircle in front of the shooting position. Of course, the distance can be changed to oer dierent degrees of diculty. The launchers are voice activated, and they go o in random order so the shooter has no idea where the next bird will y! Each round consists of 30 birds. When struck by shotgun pellets, the cap separates from the propeller signaling a scoring hit. To score, the shooter has to knock the cap loose and it must land within a fence 21 meters beyond the launchers. Im beginning to see an extreme degree of diculty here this could be really chal lenging! Even extremely good shooters will tell you it can be a humbling endeavor. Most of the highly successful shooters shoot over-andunder shotguns due to their fast cycling rates when ring both barrels in the blink of an eye. The Long Straw Ranch shooting preserve in Texas claimed that in one entire year, the number of perfect scores on a helice course can often be counted on one hand. As you can well imagine, the type of equipment necessary here doesnt come cheap. A single round can cost $100 plus your shells. Well, that certainly lets me out, but appar ently its becoming very popular around the Dallas area and several of the gun clubs have installed or are installing the equipment. A growing number of wealthy landowners are also setting up launchers on their own prop erty. When you consider the cost of these types of launchers setting up a course, from what Ive been able to nd out, could run $20,000 or even higher it sure doesnt sound like a pastime for the average working class man like me. But it sure would be fun to try it once. I did some calling to some of the ranges familiar to me around our state, and most of them had never even heard of it. My friends over at Quail Creek Plantation in Okeechobee knew about it, and the manager had even shot some courses on it when he was out in Texas, but they have not yet made a decision on bringing helice here. Quail Creeks equip ment is pretty much state-of-the-art as it gets and they also cater to live bird hunts. I have shot at this place and if you like clays or live bird shotgun shooting it just doesnt get any better. This is a real rst-class establishment in every way. Anyway, lets just say I dont think youll see the state install a helice course out of Babcock Webb anytime soon. Ha, ha. It was just something new to me and I thought it might be of interest to some of you clay bird shooters out there who hadnt heard about it yet. One fellow I interviewed said the best way to describe it is you see a ash and a blur and pull the trigger. If you have to stop and think about it for even a second, youre done.

Page 13 September 25, 2014 I usually hear Is that a surfboard? at least once while walking to the beach with my paddleboard. Beachgoers often confuse paddleboards for surfboards no surprise, as there are many similarities. People are frequently taken by surprise when they see me paddleboarding on calm days or in at water. Paddleboards come in many styles, and some are actually designed for surf. South west Florida may not be an ideal location for surng, but the Gulf of Mexico oers beginners smaller swells perfect for learning in a less dangerous environment. Paddleboarding oers diverse paddling options for various skill levels. Flat-water paddling is recommended for beginners in the sport. It is best to learn how to paddle e ciently on calm days. Stand-up paddle surng is recommended for those with intermediate to advanced paddling skills. Once you have the basics down, SUP surng is one way to build intermediate skills on a board. Before attempting to surf on a paddleboard, there are few things that you should know. Paddlers should know how to swim and how to fall away safely from the board before trying this out. Practicing prone paddling and prone paddle surng is the safest way to begin learning. Prone paddling means laying on your stomach on the paddleboard and using your arms instead of the paddle to propel the board. Prone paddling is used to get out past the breaking waves and also to self-rescue. Paddleboards are designed in dierent styles for various types of water. SUP surf boards are smaller in size and matched to the paddlers weight. Most surf-style paddleboards have a multi-n design which helps the board lift for turns in swells. Using a staggered stance when standing on the paddleboard places the paddler in a better position for catching swells. Practicing balancing techniques is recom mended to get used to moving around on the board. Waves generally make beginners feel unstable. However, a few exercises conducted on at water will promote stability. For example, when standing on the board in at water, practice walking to the front and back of the board. This simple exercise will help build core strength, coordination and balance all of which youll need to go surng. There are also a few safety considerations to keep in mind before heading out. Always check the weather and wind conditions. Learning how to navigate in swells takes some time; therefore, you want to be conscious of the wind speed to ensure an enjoyable surf experience. It is easy to get blown around in winds stronger than 15 mph. When rst starting o, you need to be humble and know your limits about the size swells that are appropriate for you. Dont bite o more than you can chew! Straight leashes are recommended for safety as they keep you close to your board. Also, wearing a leash protects other beach patrons from a potential collision with your paddleboard. Water conditions and ideal locations take some time to learn. Rely on the advice of professionals regarding the best surf locations and time to go out. Watch the water for any rip currents and be aware of sandbars in the area that you are paddling. Local knowledge of the paddling area is required to avoid diving o of the paddleboard into a sandbar. Scanning the water for other surfers is a good idea as well. If you are new to surng, you may not be aware of surf etiquette. Find a spot that is not popu lated where you can practice without being in someone elses way. Surng on a paddleboard takes years to master, but anyone can take these tips and have a great time on the water. Newbies to SUP surng should consider taking lessons from a trained instructor, which will cut down considerably on your learning curve and get you to the fun part that much faster.Nicole Miers-Pandol is owner of SUP Engle wood, a touring paddleboard company servicing Sarasota and Charlotte counties.

Page 16 September 25, 2014 Photo providedRedsh are schooling up in the harbor now. Dont wait!October has a reputation around these parts as a month for hot redsh action. If youve been looking at the calendar and getting excited about it, stop staring at the wall and get out on the water! Redsh dont have calen dars and they dont care what month it is theyre out there now, and you should be too. Redsh are a year-round species for Southwest Florida anglers, but the tail end of summer and early fall are special. This is the time of year when big redsh come inshore to school with their younger cousins. Most of the sh we see inshore arent the true 40-inch-plus bull reds. They tend to stay oshore in the Gulf, around the wrecks and reefs. Instead, we get the sh that left last year. Most are in the 30to 35-inch range. When they come in, they start mingling with the larger juveniles (about 24 inches and up). These mixed schools can hold anywhere from a dozen to a couple thousand individuals. Theyll feed together for a while, marauding on the ats and around the oyster bars. While theyre here, the shing is amazing. But all too soon theyll be heading back out into the Gulfs open waters. And when they go, most of the upper slot reds in the Harbor will go with them, leaving behind mostly rat reds for winter anglers to catch. Its still early for now, so theres plenty of time to enjoy this magical season. Reds are still arriving inshore. As they come in from the Gulf, theyre tired from traveling and getting beaten up by sharks and dolphins. Theyre looking for something to eat right away. Flats and cuts just inside the passes are natural foraging grounds for them. When they begin to disperse throughout the Harbor, theyll usually show up in high-salinity areas rst. Remember, theyre used to ocean salt, not the brackish Harbor. The Burnt Store bar, which gets lots of salty Gulf water on incoming tides, is a great place to search this time of year. In a few weeks, as they scatter more, theyll appear on the west wall and up toward Punta Gorda. When the reds rst come in, theyre pretty dumb. Even though they grew up here and learned to be boat-shy, theyve either forgotten or are just too busy eating to pay any attention to you. These sh will follow a hooked schoolmate right up to your boat and then eat a bait a foot from your hull. When theyre like that you can have an incredible time shing just throw them anything and theyll attack it like piranhas. Theyll pounce on almost any articial, and this is an awesome opportunity to catch reds on an articial lure. Heck, Ive even had them go after bare jigheads. This crazed feeding is why locals get so het up about schooling redsh, but it wont last long. With so many people hammering on them day in day out, they soon get re-educated and will shy away from your boat and any sort of boat noise. At this point, theyre less receptive to lures. Instead, switch to chunks of cutbait. Mullet, ladysh and pinsh are good choices. I also like using shrimp on jigheads, mostly because I can cast them a long, long way. You dont need any special tackle, but an extra-long rod makes those extra-long casts a lot easier. Reds are around all day, but the bite is best when they havent been harassed or driven over. If you can get out early, thats a good idea. When you locate a school, step one is to sit back and observe for a couple minutes. Watch where theyre going and what theyre doing. Are they feeding or just moving from one area to another? How skittish are they when a bird ies over? If they seem relaxed, theyll be a lot easier to sh. If someone else is shing them, dont get in their way. When you make your move, think of hunting wabbits be vewwy, vewwy quiet. Set up where the sh will swim to you, or at least by you. Dont try to get in the middle of them. Plan to make long casts to the edges of the school. Hooking a sh right in the center of the school is not a good plan. Once you have a sh on, keep one eye on the school so you can nd them again once youve landed it. Even if theyre not scared by the struggling sh, schools rarely sit still for long. If theyre not too spooky, you can usually catch a bunch of reds from one school 10, 20, 50 or even more. Schools of redsh can be easy to spot, espe cially big schools in shallow water. Thats great, because its easier for you to nd sh. Its also awful, because its easier for everyone else to nd sh. Nothing attracts a crowd like a crowd, and its a rare day when you can have a school of reds to yourself for very long. Its a fact of modern shing that we all have to share, so get used to it. Actually, most anglers are OK with this. Its only a problem when someone pulls a stupid and ruins the fun for everybody. Fishing the redsh schools is a blast, but all it takes is one guy to come in on his big motor or approach too close, and then those sh are gone. My best piece of advice for you: Dont be that guy! Nobody likes that guy. That guys a jerk. Everybody wants a shot at these sh while theyre here, so respect your fellow anglers and we can all have fun while it lasts.Capt.

Page 17 September 25, 2014 The old saying cheaters never prosper has never been more prominent than it is today in the world of competitive bass shing. Today, anglers who compete in tournaments want to know that everyone in that event is on the same playing eld. Unfortunately, you always have a few idiots who think they are smarter than the group. Sometimes it doesnt work out so well for them. A recent incident illustrates this well. After a string of six tournaments, all with rst-place nishes, Gary Lee Minor and Robert Scott Gillaspie found themselves on the wrong side of a major issue. These two were found guilty of weighing in bass that they had previously caught, caged, then retrieved for weigh-in. Now seriously, folks, if you win six tourna ments in a row, do you really think someone is not going to question that? For their troubles, these two were found guilty of theft and deception and tampering with a sporting event by a judge in a non-jury trial. They were sentenced to 30 days in jail and ned $1,000 each plus court costs. They also get two years of probation and have to serve 400 community service hours oh, and theyre banned from competitive tournament shing. Here is what is truly mystifying to me. If they could catch these sh during the week, you would think they could have caught them on the weekend just as well. No matter stupidity reigns supreme for these two individuals. What I nd even more amusing is that they are going to appeal the decision. Good luck, boys. This is the latest incident that got national publicity, but I can tell you, there are other forms of cheating that happen right here in Florida, and it goes on more often than you think. Not every angler is penning sh, but cheating comes in many dierent forms. The top example I can give you (and something to look for when you sh a tournament) is anglers who sh the brush piles. While planting unmarked brush piles is against the law, it is also against tournament rules for anglers to bait existing brush piles. Dog food is a wellknown bait cheaters will drop down around a brush pile to attract smaller species of sh. Once they move in, the bigger species follow, until you get near the top of the food chain which is the bass. I cant tell you how many healthy tourna ment trails on Kissimmee have been destroyed by these idiots. Its illegal and they know it, but they continue to do it. The sad thing is, everyone knows they are doing it, but no one has ever actually seen them bait the piles. What it has done is drive anglers away from these tournaments. Accent Marine had one of the single biggest open tournament trails in the state of Florida. I know the guy who ran it, and he watched his participation go from nearly 100 boats every tournament down to 25. No one wants to compete with guys they know cheat. Now you might be asking yourself what proof I have for this. Thats a fair question, and I have an answer. There are two teams of anglers in particular that have been really bad. When they sh a tournament on a lake that they do not have any brush piles on it, you never see them up in the standings. Put them on a lake where there are piles and they are in the top three, every time. I heard one of these anglers say that he had won enough money on Kissimmee to pay his house payments for over a year. They actually have the nerve to brag about it. I guess when you put down 150 brush piles, you will make it hard for anyone to catch you though. So how do you catch them? Well, its tough since you may never physically see them do anything wrong. I would like to see tourna ment directors start to use lie detectors at all the bigger events. Take the money for the screening out of the prize money. If the threat is there that the cheats could be caught, one of two things will happen: Theyll quit shing these events, or theyll simply learn how to sh like everyone else. I always likened tournament shing to golf. There has to be some integrity in the sport. In golf, you call penalties on yourself because it is far worse to be removed from your sport than add a stroke to your card. Same goes for shing. More often than not, you have friends in that same event you are stealing from. How can you with a clear conscience stand up and take your friends money when you knowingly cheated? Hopefully, Minor and Gillaspie won some big money over those six events that they were caught cheating in. Sounds like they will need it for their attorney fees.Greg Bartz is a tournament bass sherman based in Lakeland.

Page 18 September 25, 2014 Editors note: Doctor Robin is busy with well, some sort of animal stu, and wasnt able to get a column in this week. Therefore, we present this column from 2012. Truth to be told, we picked it mostly because of the photo. Enjoy!Three little kittens have lost Mittens or whatever their mothers name is. Peace River Wildlife Center admitted three bobcat cubs after the mother was hit by a car. People in the area had been watching the family for a few weeks as the mother led her growing kittens around, while they learned to explore their ever-expanding world. One day mom was limping around on a severely fractured leg. Over the next few days, she was seen only intermittently while the cubs stayed in the area, apparently hungry and confused. Charlotte County Animal Control ocers came to the rescue by trapping the cubs and transporting them to PRWC. Attempts continue to trap the mother shes been spotted sporadically in the area. Even if shes not caught, her leg will probably heal on its own if she can rest and nd enough to eat while conva lescing. One of the pearls of wisdom in vet school is that if you put a cat in the same room with its broken bone, it will heal. She is undoubtedly better o without the additional burden of trying to raise a family while she is on the mend. The kittens, in the meantime, are being raised at PRWC. They are cloistered in the back of the property to keep them away from people. They must be raised with as little human contact as possible so they remain wild. They have been eating and growing and getting quite erce. They will soon be old enough to release, but rst we have to ascertain that they know how to hunt, since their mothers lessons were cut short. Whenever we release a wild creature that has been admitted as a juvenile, we must make sure it can feed itself it has to know what to eat and how to nd it. Live prey training, one of the most unpleasant aspects of wildlife rehabilitation, is a necessary evil. We must make sure carnivores and raptors can recog nize and are able to catch live prey. While in captivity, these animals are fed predominantly frozen/thawed (usually white) mice and rats. Some of our permanent residents get so nicky they will refuse to eat even a brown mouse. When we are condent that the cubs can eectively feed themselves, we will nd a suitable location to release them. Until then, check out our website for updated pictures of the kids as they grow. We have some cameras hidden within their cage that occasion ally catch them frolicking or napping together. They are not on display to the public, but your support will help us feed these hungry little tykes and all the other injured and orphaned birds and mammals that nd themselves in need of our services.Peace River Wildlife Center is a nonprot organization, dedicated to the care, preservation and protection of Charlotte Countys native wildlife since 1978. They are open seven days a week year-round, including holidays. Tours are oered from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. PRWC receives no government funding and relies entirely on private donations.

Page 19 September 25, 2014 GULF SHARKS SHRINKINGOver the past 30 years, the size of sharks in the Gulf of Mexico has been shrinking. Drastically. Some by as much as 70 percent. The ndings come from the University of Alabama and the University of North Carolinas Institute of Marine Sciences. Researchers came up with a novel way of gathering the historical data. While there wasnt any academic database that collected such information, local newspapers in the Gulf region have been publishing the results of shing competitions for years. What they found was that between the 1920s and 1980s, the size of trophy sharks being caught was getting larger and larger. Boats were getting bigger, rods were getting better, said Dr. Joel Fodrie of the UNC IMS. But by the s, average shark sizes began to drop. Today, not only are smaller sharks being caught, but smaller species of sharks are being reeled in. Fodrie says the drop in size correlates to an increase in the commercial shing of sharks. Through the s, sharks were often used as imitation sh product, and the ns were sold to Asian markets. But as conservation eorts have picked up in recent years, the amount of commercial shark shing has dropped drastically, from about 6,000 tons per year, to closer to 1,000. Its hard to say what eect this might have on the ecosystem of the Gulf of Mexico. A study in North Carolina showed the decreasing size of sharks allowed ray populations to explode, upsetting the food chain of other sh.DOLPHIN OFFERS HOPE TO BOATSINKING VICTIMCORPUS CHRISTI, Texas Its an amazing story of hope and survival after a man says he oated for 31 hours in the ocean until he was rescued. Joey Trevino was shing with his buddies and his uncle when their boat capsized in the Gulf of Mexico. Trevino said they noticed the water ll ing up on the boat and thats when he grabbed life jackets for everyone. But before they could radio for help the boat sank. His buddies and uncle were rescued rst by an oil rig supply vessel. But Trevino was still oating and waited much longer before help arrived. He said he would look at the clouds, talk aloud to his wife and children while trying not to give up hope. He soon got a welcome sign from a dolphin that hit his leg. The dolphin stayed there with him for a while giving him hope that he would be rescued. Seven and a half hours later, a boat heard his cry for help and contacted the Coast Guard. Thats when Trevino was rescued. He was sent to a hospital and is recovering but most of all happy hes alive and with his family again.BLUEFIN CATCH CUT IN HALFTOKYO, Japan After several decades of reck less overshing, mostly by Japanese eets eager to satisfy their countrys increasing demand for sushi and sashimi, stocks of bluen tuna in the Pacic Ocean have declined alarmingly. Japan accounts for more than 70 percent of the Pacic bluen tuna caught, according to the governments Fisheries Agency. As a consequence, the most recent stock assessment of Pacic bluen tuna made by the International Scientic Committee for Tuna and Tuna-like Species in the North Pacic Ocean, noted that the population level is near historically low levels and experiencing high exploitation rates. The situation is so dire that Japans Fisheries Agency felt compelled to announce in March it would cut the countrys allowable haul of Pacic immature bluen tuna by 50 percent in 2015. The agency followed this up by lobbying other countries shing in the region to do likewise, and this month succeeded in obtaining their agreement. During a conference of countries belonging to the Western and Central Pacic Fisheries Commission that took place in Fukuoka, Japan, in early September, the other major catchers of tuna South Korea, Taiwan, Canada and the United States promised to make the same deep cuts as Japan. People re alized something had to be done about the level of catch, said Glenn Hurry, executive director of the WCPFC. The biomass [of the bluen tuna] that researchers are talking about is only 3 to 4 percent of the original spawning biomass, which is not a level you should commercially sh sheries.THE SECRET TO AVOIDING BACTERIA: SHARK SKINA material that mimics shark skin, covered with tiny ridges and grooves, may help reduce the spread of bacteria in hospitals, a new study suggests. The study examined how well the shark skin-like material which has bumps that are too small for the eye to see could prevent the growth and spread of disease-causing bacteria, including MRSA bacteria, which are resistant to the antibiotics typically used to treat staph infections, and are known for causing infections in hospitals. The researchers set up experiments to mimic how bacteria might contaminate a surface in the real world they used a paint sprayer to apply the bacteria to surfaces, to mimic sneezing, and also used a contaminated velveteen cloth to press against surfaces to represent how bacteria might spread through touching. The surfaces were then tested for bacterial contamination. The material, called Sharklet, contained 94 percent less MRSA bacteria compared with a smooth surface, while a copper surface, which is also being studied for its antimicrobial properties, had 80 percent less MRSA. Sharklet was also better than the copper material at being able to resist contamination with methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus, which is staph bacteria that can be treated with antibiotics. Sharklet contained 97 percent less MSSA than a smooth surface, while the copper surface harbored about as much MSSA as a smooth surface. Rather than killing bacteria, as some antimicrobial surfaces do, the Sharklet material prevents bacterial contamina tion by making it dicult for bacteria to attach to the surface, the researchers said.TOURNAMENT CHEATERS GET JAILRigging bass tournaments landed a pair of Alabama men on ice last week after rival anglers became suspicious of their dominance and tipped o investigators. Gary Lee Minor Jr., 37, of Albertville, and Robert Scott Gillaspie, 45, of Boaz, won six tournaments in a row, but authorities later determined they were using previously-caught lunkers to tip the scales at the end of contests. They were convicted of cheating during a bass shing tournament on Alabamas Lake Gunterville and will spend 30 days in jail, authorities say. They were found guilty of theft by deception and tampering with a sporting event by a judge following a non-jury trial on Monday. Both were sentenced to 30 days in jail and ordered to pay a $1,000 nd plus court costs. They will also serve two years probation following their release and perform 400 hours of community service, according to Marshall County District Attorney Steve Marshall. Minor and Gillaspie, who also were ned $1,000 each, had their shing and hunting licenses revoked and were banned from future shing competitions. Minor and Gillaspie were arrested in May after a witness told ocers from the Alabama Department of Conservation that they were keeping previously caught sh and using those catches for the ocial weigh-in. The ocers conducted an investigation and got enough evidence to be condent of a conviction, according to conservation ocer Lt. Jim Kirkland. Both men have appealed the conviction, Marshall said.THIS JOKE IS NOT WORTH READINGA sailor was caught AWOL as he tried to sneak on board his ship at about 3 a.m. The chief petty ocer spied him and ordered the sailor to stop. Upon hearing the sailors lame explanation for his tardiness, the ocer ordered the sailor to, Take this broom and sweep every link on this anchor chain by morning or its the brig for you! The sailor picked up the broom and commenced performing his charge. As he began to sweep, a tern landed on the broom handle. The lad picked the tern o the broom handle, giving the bird a toss. The tern left, only to return and light once again on the broom handle. The sailor went through the same routine over and over again. He couldnt get any cleaning done because he could only sweep at the chain once or twice before the blasted bird returned. In the morning the chief petty ocer, came to check the sailor and his work. What in the heck have you been doing all night? This chain is no cleaner than when you started! What have you to say for yourself, sailor? barked the chief. Honest, chief, came the reply, I tossed a tern all night and couldnt sweep a link!

Page 20 September 25, 2014 Photo providedSpanish mackerel are loads of fun, and catching a bunch is a great way to gets kids hooked on shing. Just watch out for those chompers.I enjoyed a trip to Plantation on Crystal River for the Florida Outdoor Writers Associ ation conference. Its fun and productive to join friends and take advantage of networking opportunities. I visited with many folks I dont see often enough. We shed some dierent ecosystems, remote salt marshes and brackish creeks. It was good to get away from it all; we went miles without seeing a manmade struc ture. Thanks to our corporate sponsors I got to check out several new products to improve our catching and fun. Then I escaped to the woods along the Suwannee River. Amazingly, they still have sturgeon up there. I was tired after a busy year so far. I needed a break to rest and catch up on everything but shing. It was great to enjoy some downtime and now its time to get back on the water. Our weather is nally starting ever so slightly to cool down. The water temperature as I write is at 86; it was still bouncing at 90 two weeks ago. Our days are getting shorter; Tuesday was the equinox, when daylight and dark are equal. Baitsh are still abundant. Fish will begin to feed enthusiastically to store fat for winter. I understand winter and Florida sound strange together, but it will get much cooler by late November. Now is the time to enjoy shing before the crowds arrive. This is the low-pressure season to catch sh and not roast ourselves. Snook, redsh, and trout our big three inshore sh targets are all open and ready. All three are nomadic right now so we frequently catch snook, reds and a few nice trout in the same spots. This short window is extra incentive to get out before snook closes. I like to sh with live minnows if I can castnet them. Many like to sh lures or ies, and thats also productive. The minnows help make sh more aggressive because I toss em a few freebies. Its always exciting to actually observe hungry sh feeding. Just stop pitching minnows if the gulls start gathering; their shadows will scare your sh away. Big schools of redsh are beginning to shift from Charlotte Harbor out into the Gulf from all area passes. This is a we-can-get-lucky-ifwe-try deal. If you dont look, you cant get lucky. Redsh usually bunch up better around the big moons, but Ive gotten lucky at unusual times and places. Always stay alert for serious pushes of sh. When you stumble upon a school, the sight is awesome and the bite a red-hot frenzy. They will eat anything you throw at em. These schools can be very shy, so stealth is recommended. We frequently work several boats around schools, but dont crash in uninvited and mess it up for the boat that found em. Spanish mackerel are already teasing us, especially inside Charlotte Harbor. Migratory schools will improve next month. Mackerel are plentiful and fun. The larger kings will follow the baitsh migrations into the Venice and Englewood areas any time also. This is fast-ac tion shing with liberal bag limits so we have llets to share with family and friends. Both mackerel species are actually underutilized we arent catching enough! If you think you dont like mackerel, please let me show you how tasty they are when we handle them properly and eat them fresh. I just might share my easy, simple, awesome recipe. We can usually catch a nice mess of mackerel but this can literally get overwhelming because its fast and furious. Multiple hookups are common and hilarious shing fun. Heres the kicker: Sometimes we stumble into unbelievably hot action with many other species. The minnows are pushed into tight, dark-colored balls of baitsh scared by hungry striking sh, and that draws all sorts of attention. You can hook into a large variety of species, and we have actually had tarpon, king mackerel and huge redsh on at the same time. Sharks and cobia are regular tackle busters around the bait schools. If you want to learn about mackerel shing, most local bait and tackle shop staers are glad to help you explore all the productive gear to catch sh with. Dont waste their time and then go to a big box store to save a few pennies. You would miss these bait shops, and businesses must sell to stay open. Remember that macks have teeth and you will need several lures; otherwise you may run out in a hot bite! Spoons, jigs and plugs all have a place here. Just dont mix them trolling, because each works best at a dierent speed. The weather controls if we can sh outside into the nearshore Gulf. The great news is we can almost always sh inside safely and comfortably. So what are you waiting for its time to lock in your dates or miss the boat! Thank you, and lets go shin soon.Capt.

Page 21 September 25, 2014 Its Red October so were going to show you where the big redsh are and how to catch em Oct. 7th and 8th at Luigis. Call now to reserve your seats!It was a simple plan: Tarpon were allegedly biting up the Peace River, so we were going to head out and see. There was a good bit of rain on the radar, but none looked all that heavy. We launched from Port Charlotte Beach and headed up the river mouth. Then it all went wrong. This was no drizzle this was a downpour. We took shelter as best we could under the U.S. 41 bridge, but its too high to make a good umbrella in the wind. We decided to wait for a break and head back to port, but a quick look at the radar showed a big red blob headed our way. We needed a new plan, quick. Then it all went right. We had just enough time to get to Fishermens Village and tie up before the sky burst open. Of course, now were trapped for a while. It was a tad early yet, but I gured lunch would be cheaper than shopping, so I steered her toward Village Fish Market. Despite the rain, the outside seating was dry. We grabbed a table and watched it pour on Charlotte Harbor. Although this place is an old favorite, the menu is big enough that we could never get bored. We decided to start with the fried zucchini and mozzarella. Both are coated in a delicate and aky tempura-style batter. The zucchini slices were still crispy and clearly had been sliced fresh. This is a treat for people who actually like vegetables. But then theres the bite-size chunks of cheese, ooeygooey and so good, with a delightfully buttery avor. This appetizer is served with ranch dressing and a not-too-sweet honey mustard. We like the zucchini with just a hint of ranch, but the mozzarella bites are fantastic with a hearty dunk into the honey mustard. Soon the plate was down to crumbs. No worries, because the main courses were right at hand. She chose the sh and chips no surprise there, since shes always up for sh and chips. Since it was lunchtime and shes watching her girlish gure, she selected the 4-ounce portion. For heartier appetites, theres also a 7-ounce option, but this was just right for her. The sh was tender, aky and mild, and fried in the same batter as the zucchini. Restaurant management are apparently concerned for your health and are trying to keep sodium content down, so if youre a salt nut (see what I did there?) youll be reaching for the shaker. The fries were thick, uy on the inside and crispy outside. The cup of fresh slaw was sweet, crunchy and not too juicy. Village Fish Market is billed as a New England-style eatery, so I chose the lobster roll. The meat was rich and sweet, with several large chunks of claw meat. It was dressed with a seasoned mayo, mixed with chopped celery, and dusted with black pepper and Old Bay (or something similar). It was very good, but a bit too sloppy to eat as a sandwich. Youll need to use a fork and knife, or at least eat some of the lobster chunks rst. The sandwich came with sweet potato fries, which were simple, crispy and excellent. There was also a very tasty cinnamon butter for dipping them in. We liked them by themselves and dipped. I really like seeing sweet potato fries on more menus these days theyre a great way to get your veggies without feeling punished. We nished o with a slice of triple chocolate cake, which was dense and moist and very rich. And since it was still raining, we went shopping afterward, and we never did make it up the river to see about those tarpon. Village Fish Market is located in Fisher mens Village (1200 W.

Weather and tide also play a role, but expect sh to be more active during the major and minor solunar times. East Coast oil hunt may harm whalesNAGS HEAD, N.C. As early as next spring, the boom of seismic cannons will sound under the Atlantic Ocean as the rst oil and gas exploration allowed o the East Coast in three decades gets underway. While federal officials and the oil and gas industry characterize the exploration as benign, Nags Head Mayor Bob Edwards said hes terrified about what the intense sound waves can do to dolphins and endangered North Atlantic right whales, of which only 500 remain. I just cant understand how anybody would propose something thats going to be just a rape of the East Coast, endangering whales and dolphins and turtles and sh, he said. The seismic surveys are done with compressed air guns that blast as loud as a howitzer under the sea, repeated every 10 seconds or so for weeks at a time. Echoes from the blasts are used to produce three-dimen sional maps that help company geologists gure out whether sub-sea rock formations are likely to contain fossil fuels worth drilling. The federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management approved opening an area of the Atlantic Coast from Delaware to Florida for the seismic blasts, saying there has been no documented scientic evidence that they harm marine mammals. Even among federal scientists, though, there is concern over what such extreme pulses of sound can do to the hearing and communication of whales and other marine life that use sound to locate food and mates, and to keep track of young. Its been pretty well documented that seismic surveys have disrupted animal behavior and animal communication, said Danielle Cholewiak, a senior acoustics researcher for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Political leaders in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia lobbied President Barack Obama to approve the seismic testing to assess how much oil and natural gas lies o the East Coast, with the hope that Obama will allow oshore drilling that brings jobs and money. But in coastal towns that rely on tourism, such as Nags Head on North Carolinas Outer Banks, the idea of drilling into the ocean is hugely contentious. The Outer Banks economy relies on the visitors who rent vacation homes for weeklong vacations and relax on wide golden beaches along the windswept Atlantic Ocean. A spill would devastate the local tourism industry, said Paul Manning, who owns the Front Porch Cafe on the Outer Banks, where the employees roast coee and serve up mugs to tourists plotting their day at the beach or where to nd the best seafood along the shore. Manning argues that the cash from opening up the Atlantic Ocean to drilling would largely go to ports like Wilmington, N.C., or the more industrialized Hampton Roads area of Virginia, leaving places like the Outer Banks with the risks of energy development and no reward. Allen Burrus, a Hatteras, N.C., grocer and member of the Dare County Board of Commis sioners, said that oshore drilling would bring economic benets to the Outer Banks and that he suspects the environmental fears are being overblown by groups with an agenda. I believe if they can prove that it hurts the mammals in the sea then they probably should not do it, Burrus said. But if its not hurting them, then why not? The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management said it will restrict when the seismic cannons are red during whale migration and will require onboard spotters and acoustic tests meant to detect marine mammals and shut down activities when they are too close. The agency said that if such precautions are followed, then the seismic exploration should not cause any deaths or injuries to the hearing of marine mammals or sea turtles. The American Petroleum Institute said the seismic blasts are safe and are being overly restricted by the government. Operators already take great care to protect wildlife, and the best science and decades of experience prove that there is no danger to marine mammal populations, the oil industry association said in a statement. George Ioup, a physics professor at the University of New Orleans, has studied the effects of the seismic blasts in the Gulf of Mexico. He said there are many unanswered questions, but that whales and dolphins in the Gulf tend to operate at frequencies far higher than the sound waves from seismic cannons. They probably dont even hear them very well, Ioup said. Its dierent in the Atlantic, though, Ioup said. Species of large Atlantic whales, including endangered right whales, operate at low frequencies and will hear the booms. An extraordinary amount of caution is needed if theres seismic exploration near spawning or feeding grounds of such whales, Ioup said.

Page 28 September 25, 2014 Putnam: Aid needed if oyster harvest haltedTALLAHASSEE Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam said Sept. 19 that state ocials must be ready to assist thousands of families whose lives would be impacted if the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission shuts down oyster harvesting in Apalachicola Bay. Putnam wouldnt go so far as to say hed support closing the North west Florida bay to harvesting. But he expressed condence in the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis sions biologists who are working to revive the waterway, which has struggled from over-harvesting and a reduction in water coming out of Georgia. If thats the conclusion their scientists come to, were going to respect a lot of their work, Putnam told reporters. And if thats the conclusion they come to, then all of us across state govern ment need to be prepared to move in and assist those families that will be devastated. No action has been taken since Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Executive Director Nick Wiley advised the commission Sept. 10 that the closure may be needed. Its very likely that were going to have to entertain a possible complete closure of the Apala chicola oyster harvest, Wiley said during a meeting in Kissimmee. We want to take that very carefully, and only do that if everybody feels thats what we have to do. On Friday, the threat of closure spurred seafood workers in Franklin County to angrily confront the president of their workers associa tion, according to the Panama City News Herald. The story reported that oystermen are receiving record prices per bag but are facing a scarcity of oysters. It said some oystermen privately acknowledge that closing the bay might help replenish supplies but are worried that even a short-term closure could eventually lead to privatized aqua culture in the bay or to no harvests. The meeting had been called to outline a $4.5 million shelling program that is coming from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. In August, the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission imple mented new conservation measures for the winter, from closing certain commercial and recreational areas to lowering the number of oysters people can harvest. The oyster population has been hurt, in part, because of a reduc tion in water owing south from Georgia. Since 1990, control of water in the river system shared by Florida, Georgia and Alabama has been the subject of lengthy litigation. Recent rulings have favored Georgia. Last fall, Gov. Rick Scott announced a new lawsuit against Georgia in the U.S. Supreme Court. Wiley has said there may not be a bright recovery until the water ow issue is resolved. The region has been listed as a declared shery-resource disaster by the federal government since August 2013. Wiley has said the conditions have only gotten worse, which is what required the new winter harvest rules. Putnam said hes yet to be briefed on the latest reports from the agen cys biologists. It is a big step to take, and I know they dont consider it lightly, Putnam said.
