Weve all heard it: Theres nothing for kids to do in Southwest Florida. Hogwash. Pigclean. Boarbath. Mike Greenwells Bat-A-Ball & Family Fun Park offers a day full of fun for kids and families. Mike Greenwell, 51, is a former Boston Red Sox player from North Fort Myers who opened the family fun park in Cape Coral almost 23 years ago. Growing up in Lee County he realized the need for a fun safe place for the kids of our community, states the website. Since February 1992 Mike Greenwells Bat-ABall & Family Fun Park has been Lee Countys choice for family fun. A day at Mike Greenwells can include miniature golf, batting cages, Go Karts, feeding dock, arcade games and the newly renovated Dugout restaurant, which is expected to open next month. The great thing about Mike Greenwells is that there is no entry fee. You only pay for the activities in which you want to participate. We have people that just come to bat. We have people that just come to golf, so you dont have to do everything, said manager Dana Waters, who has been with Mike Greenwells since the beginning. The staff takes good care of all attractions as well. The miniature golf course recently received new greens (carpets) for all 19 holes. Prices range from $3 to $6.50 for mini golf. Mike Greenwells also upgraded its Go Karts, which are now ThunderVolt Go Karts. These electric powered go karts are packed with all kinds of features to maximize Lots to do at Mike Greenwells SOUTH OF PUNTA GORDA Correctional ofcers who recently were red for their alleged roles in the death of a local prison inmate are beginning to appeal the Florida Department of Corrections decision to terminate them before a death investigation was complete. Their due-process rights were completely violated, said attorney Maria Kazouris, who is representing two of the red correctional ofcers. Its shameful. Ten correctional ofcers from Charlotte Correctional Institution were placed on administrative leave following the death of inmate Matthew Walker, 45, on April 11 nearly six months ago after the Florida Department of Law Enforcement began investigating. A lieutenant was red shortly thereafter, and the nine others were terminated Sept. 19. According to letters sent to each terminated employee by the DOC, the correctional ofcers on April 11 inappropriately participated in a use of force that resulted in the death of an inmate. However the FDLEs investigation Fired correctional officers begin appealsBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITEROFFICERS | 6 Charlotte leads the state in vocational performanceSUN PHOTOS BY SOMMER BROKAWLeft: Mandy Hankison, who is about four months away from graduation from the Cosmetology program at Charlotte Technical Center, practices hair-styling techniques. Mary Curby cries tears of joy when her students graduate. When you see them walk across that stage, all the blood, sweat and tears go away, and theyre ready to go, said Curby, a cosmetology instructor at Charlotte Technical Center. That walk of success is not uncommon in Charlotte County. The county leads the state in career training passage rates. Charlottes district passage rate was 98 percent in 2012-2013, while the overall state rate was 79 percent. That earned the district $238,547 in Career and Professional Education bonus funds from the state to support vocational training. Nearby counties havent performed as well. Lee County was closest to Charlotte with an 89 percent passage rate, and Sarasota had a passage rate of 85 percent. DeSoto performed below the state average with 63 percent. Curby is one of the teachers who may benet from this years expansion of the CAPE Act. The Florida Legislature enacted the CAPE Act in 2007 to provide education needed for high-demand careers. The state then enacted major expansions to CAPE in 2012, 2013 and 2014. The legis lation tied career-themed courses, which have industry-specic curriculum to meet priority workforce needs. It just makes sense, said CTC director Bernard Duffy. Thats better bargaining power for them. One of the advances in the 2014 CAPE Act is students can earn new CAPE Digital Tool certicates and CAPE industry certications. DeeLynn Bennett, assistant director of CTC, said she is particularly excited about a Microsoft IT Academy, offer ing a three out of ve bundle, where students can choose from Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook and Sharepoint. Another change is expanded teacher bonuses for students earning these certications. Were always looking for equity with how we compensate people, and I think thats a nice little carrot to hang out there for the individual, said Ian Vincent, Charlotte County School Board chairman. Duffy said Charlotte County has made a strong effort over the last By SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITERLEADS | 6As recently as Monday, northbound U.S. 41 motorists crossing the bridge into Port Charlotte could get a gallon of gas for around $3.23. By the end of the day Tuesday, it was costing them as much as $3.39 a gallon. The same was happening in other parts of Charlotte County. Last week, the Duncan Road area off Interstate 75 had among the lowest prices at $3.20 a gallon, according to GasBuddy.com. By Tuesday night, a few of the same stations wanted $3.29 to $3.35 a gallon. The dramatic surge was happening so quickly that it wasnt on the radar of most gas price experts, who last week were predicting possible drops below $3 a gallon by the end of the year. AAAs www.fuelgaugereport.com, which had last updated at 3:45 a.m. Tuesday, only showed about a penny increase average the previous 24 hours from Bradenton to Fort Myers. Gas prices in the Charlotte area are up slightly after a decline over the past seven weeks, according to Josh Carrasco, a spokesman for AAA Florida. These still are some of the lowest gas prices weve seen in Florida since February of this year, said Carrasco, noting that the only area that has stood out with increases was Pensacola, which spiked about 6 cents over last week. He said gas prices had fallen because of high domestic oil production in the U.S., reneries switching over to winter blend fuels, which have less additives Gas prices going down?

Our Town Page 2 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, October 1, 2014 Jim Kelly is a storyteller par excellence. It doesnt take long in his presence to know the Punta Gorda man can weave one intriguing tale after another. At a recent pancake breakfast at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Punta Gorda, Jim and Ginny Kelly introduced themselves to a table of strangers. Within minutes, they were no longer strangers. It was no surprise when the spellbinding storyteller said he recently published a book of stories. They say you should write about what you know. Jim wrote a candid book about the subject nearest to his heart true tales from 60 years of marriage to his wife Ginny. The surprise came at the size of the book. It weighs as much as a small baby. Fortunately, Love! Adventure! Happiness Too! is available as an e-book, as well as in the hefty paperback version. Its his baby, Ginny says. It took him eight years to write it. She admits she is a private person and, as such, she had reservations about sharing details of their life with the rest of the world. Jim did exactly that, and didnt sugarcoat the trials and triumphs of married life. The book has something compellingly genuine to say about surviving the ups and downs of life. Thats part of its charm. The book was twice that size when I nished it, but my editor insisted I had to cut it in half, Jim says. It is his storytelling ability that draws a reader in and doesnt let go. We all have poor stories to tell, and Jim has them in spades. He tells of losing everything at 40 when his job was outsourced overseas. We had ve kids, and all we had to our name was three cents and half a bottle of ketchup, Ginny recalls. Jim tells stories of surviving Christmas with a dollar Christmas tree and paper decorations made by the children. The seven of us were living in a 700-squarefoot NYC apartment with no income, no car, no health insurance and no money in the bank. But, through it all, we were rich in our love for each other, Jim recalls. By pounding the pavement and taking any menial job he could get, Jim eventually was hired to sell law books to businesses. His book could be a primer for those in sales. Jim became a top salesman, returning his family to nancial stability. While he had many unusual career achievements, my favorite part of the book is his midlife crisis at the age of 67, when he insisted they sell their home and buy a 40-foot trawler to live on, even though he had no powerboating experience. Ginny wanted no part of it. It was almost the end of our marriage, Jim says, telling how their children thought he was crazy. They pointed out he couldnt manage a boat on his own because he was too fat to bend down to tie his shoe and had arthritis so bad that he sometimes couldnt hold a newspaper. Jim insisted he had lived 40 years working for his family. Now he wanted his time. When Ginny reluctantly gave in, they bought the boat and the salesman delivered it to Burnt Store Marina. But Jim had to admit to fellow boaters he didnt know how to pilot it, much less dock it. Tale after riveting tale details their fun and frightening experiences on the water. The sign of a good storyteller is always leaving your audience wanting more. In his book as well as in real life, Jim does that. At 86, Jim Kelly just sold his yacht, but he still has plenty of stories to tell. His book is available at Amazon.com, or email him at TruLuv96@aol. com.

Although its a hefty book, the gifted storyteller leaves readers wanting more, especially of the funny stories from their adventures living on a 40-foot boat for years. Hint: They had a steep learning curve when Jim bought the boat at 67.The SUN (USPS 743170) is published daily at Sun Coast Media Group, Inc., 23170 Harborview Road, Charlotte Harbor, FL 33980-2100.

Last week there was a message on my home answering machine from an older-sounding mom to one of her children (she started out by saying, Hi, this is mom.). This mom was very sad and crying, and clearly thought she was speaking to her child. By the end of it, I was crying and called the number back and left a message for her that I had received the call. I write this as a reminder that sometimes phone numbers are misdialed and emails get lost and texts end up in cyber space. If its important, make sure you have a personal conversation. Julie Mathis is executive director of the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce. She can be reached at jmathis@ charlottecountychamber. org.Stay busy with chamber in October Charlotte County ChamberJulie Mathis Good day to all! Did you know that, in addition to offering great shing today, Charlotte Harbor and its estuary supported a booming shing industry more than 400 years ago? Juan Ponce de Leon rst entered the harbor in May 1513, returning in February 1521 to establish a Spanish colony. Fiercely attacked by Calusa warriors soon after arrival, survivors ed back to Cuba with a mortally wounded Ponce. Even so, by the late 16th century, a Spanish shing industry in the harbor and its estuary supplying Havana ourished. Although the precise start of the industry is unclear, in 1598, the captain-general of Havana wrote ofcials in St. Augustine asking that they visit the harbor to mediate disputes between shing interests. Putting that in proper perspective, Jamestown wasnt settled by the English until 1607, and the Pilgrims arrival in New England was still over 20 years away. By 1600, Havana was a thriving city of about 3,000 souls, mostly Spanish Catholics, which required a steady ow of seafood, particularly during the Lenten season. Cuba lacked an estuary consistently productive as Charlotte Harbors, so shing ranchos were established throughout the area at Useppa, LaCosta (Cayo Costa), Gasparilla, Sanibel, Punta Rassa and other sites. The product was dried, salted sh and roe (sh eggs), primarily mullet. When England acquired Florida in 1763 after the Seven Years War (French and Indian), Cuban shermen were allowed to continue their trade. In 1769, Bernard Romans, a Dutch navigator charting Floridas coast who named the harbor after Great Britains Queen Charlotte, noted that plenty of sh were found in the harbors waters, and estimated that 2 million pounds of dried salted sh were shipped to Havana annually. Ranchos still were present in Charlotte Harbor when the railroad came to Trabue (Punta Gorda) in 1886. Two of the biggest operations at the time were run by Captain Tariva Padilla at Tarivas Bayou on the north end of LaCosta (Cayo Costa), and Narcisco de Noda at Peacons Bayou (Cove) on the north end of Gasparilla Island, who worked for John Peacon and his brothers. The Peacons had come to the area from the Bahamas via Key West. Some of the early sherfolk liked the barrier islands so much, they settled permanently, and descendants still reside in the area today. Both Padilla and de Noda were natives of the Canary Islands, and also came to Charlotte Harbor via Key West. Thirty or so men were employed by each operation during the mullet run (season), typically November through January. However their days were numbered when the railroad and ice plants came, shifting the market from dried, salted sh for Cuba to fresh sh for up North. My siblings and I were fortunate to know Miss Lola Daniels, Padillas granddaughter, when we were youngsters. She lived just down the street from us in a small cottage with no electricity and, in 1960, still cooked on a wood-burning stove. A petite woman in her late 70s at the time, we all loved her. More on Punta Gordas commer cial shing industry in my next column.

These organizations provide programs and services to the public, with prots beyond their operating expenses reinvested in the services they provide. Nonprot expenditures generate a signicant economic impact on the area in the form of salaries to their employ ees and the purchase of supplies and services for their organizations. These expenditures, in turn, generate income for other businesses and their employees, beneting the entire community. The amount an individual may be able to donate to his favorite charity is tied directly to the health of the overall economy, and, in par ticular, to the nancial health of the upperand middle-class consumers. Its the smaller donations by millions of middle-class Americans that fuel most of the nations nonprots, not the few billionaires that are always mentioned in the news. A sluggish economy in our area has continued to make it difcult for the middle class to make donations to their favorite nonprots; you pay your bills rst, and, somewhere down the line, you think about giving to your favorite charities. Nonprot organization fundraising campaigns depend on contributions by the above economic groups. The recession of 2008 and slow recovery have impacted local nonprots; donations of used clothing and furniture to thrift shops have fallen by 25 percent. Because of this, nonprofit organizations continue to struggle to meet their nancial obligations and cannot expand their services to meet future needs. By supporting local nonprots today, your money can help them grow and meet future community needs, be it education, health, arts and culture, social services and many more. Many of these services would not be available to the public without your support of these organizations. The Cultural Center of Charlotte County is one of Charlotte Countys oldest nonprots, established back in 1961. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprot corporation that receives no governmental funding towards operating expenses. If you have questions about the many different ways you can help your favorite nonprot, please feel free to contact me.

Our Town Page 6 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, October 1, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE PUNTA GORDA City leaders will welcome a new neighbor and environmental partner today at a special ceremony at City Hall. City Council members and staff will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Programs new ofces in Punta Gorda. The ceremony will take place at 1 p.m. at City Hall, 326 W. Marion Ave. We are so excited to be here, CHNEP Director Lisa Beever said, while sitting in her small ofce Tuesday anked by bookcases chock full of titles like The Biology of the Spotted Sea Trout and the Birders Handbook. Were in a more central location now, so we are more accessible to the public, Beever said. Established in 1995 by Congress, and funded, in part, by grants from the federal Environmental Protection Agency, the CHNEP is one of 28 programs across the country tasked with developing plans to restore and protect estuaries threatened by pollution, land development and overuse. The CHNEP represents seven counties in Southwest Florida Lee, Charlotte DeSoto, Sarasota, and portions of Polk, Hardee and Manatee counties covering roughly 4,885 square miles. At the center of the CHNEPs service area is the Charlotte Harbor Estuary, the second-largest open-water estuary in the state. The estuary is a natural estuary spanning Floridas Gulf coast from Venice to Bonita Springs, and has a large watershed that includes Charlotte Harbor itself, as well as the Peace, Caloosahatchee and Myakka river basins. It is one of the most productive wetlands in Florida. The move to Punta Gorda not only makes the programs ofce more centrally located, but also would cut the CHNEPs operating costs by nearly half. Before moving to the city, the organization paid the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council, the agency that for years played host to the CHNEPs tiny fourperson ofce, roughly $183,000 a year. The program receives about $540,000 annually in federal grants. Under the agreement with Punta Gorda, the CHNEP pays the city approximately $98,500 for the rst year for space in City Hall, effective today. The funding that (Punta Gorda) is saving us in terms of overhead costs translates directly into providing services in the eld, Beever said. City leaders say the organizations move to Punta Gorda is a perfect t, given recent efforts to improve water quality in the harbor, such as oyster reef restoration, a joint project between the city, the CHNEP and The Nature Conservancy. Their move enables them to be closer to the estuary, and also allows for more programming in our area, Mayor Rachel Keesling said. (Its) a winwin for Punta Gorda. Fellow City Councilwoman Carolyn Freeland agreed. I am so delighted CHNEP staff will now reside in City Hall, ensuring many more opportunities to join together to protect and preserve (the) harbor for our current residents, visitors and, importantly, for future generations, she said.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comCity to welcome estuary programBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERIF YOU GOWhat: Special ribboncutting ceremony for the Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Programs new offices When: 1 p.m. today Where: City Hall, 326 W. Marion Ave., Punta Gorda into Walkers death remains open, and very little information about the alleged killing has been made public. Kazouris led a grievance Monday with the DOC on behalf of one of the red correctional of cers, and she planned to le for another this week. The Teamsters Union, which represents correctional ofcers in Southwest Florida, plans to le grievances for three of the red CCI employees today, and another already has been led, according to local Teamsters spokesman Bill Curtis. At least two other correctional ofcers already have appealed. How can they even defend themselves if they dont even know what they are accused of? Kazouris said. In my opinion, (the DOC) cant prove much of anything because the (FDLE) investigation isnt complete. FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said the agency expects to wrap up its CCI investigation this month, and to turn the case over to the State Attorneys Ofce. The SAO then would decide whether to pursue criminal charges. As DOC spokeswoman Jessica Cary recently pointed out in a recent statement to the Sun the department doesnt necessarily need to wait that long if it feels there has been wrongdoing by an employee. The (DOC) has a clear and consistent policy that outlines the initiation of disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal against any employee whose conduct violates any criminal statute, she said. (But) a criminal conviction is not necessary for disciplinary action to be taken. This was made appar ent when a total of 23 other DOC employees who also had been on leave, including a CO from DeSoto Correctional Institution were red, along with the CCI staffers, a couple of weeks ago. Cary said the terminations conclude the review of all DOC employees who were on administrative leave. While Curtis expressed much disappointment, he declined to provide a comment Tuesday. Kazouris had more to say. (The correctional ofcers) were all kind of thrown out in the wind, she said. The Department (of Corrections) is (backward). Kazouris said the DOC has about three weeks to respond to the grievances. If a grievance is not accepted and resolved, the case could go to arbitration. Then, a judge would decide whether there was just cause for discipline. Kazouris expects the grievances to go to arbitration, which she said could take a few months.More prison death investigationsThe Florida Department of Corrections recently added a section to its website www. dc.state.fl.us/pub/ mortality that offers statistics and other information about inmate deaths at Floridas 72 prison facilities. If an investigation into the death is closed, online documents are available for that case. There are status updates for open cases. At the Charlotte Correctional Institution, four deaths all since 2013, including Matthew Walkers remain open, pending DOC investigations. Since Walkers death on April 11, there has been only one other inmate who died Damion Foster, 37, on May 21. No disciplinary action was taken following that death. There have been 239 prison deaths around Florida this year. More than 100 of them still are being investigated.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comOFFICERSFROM PAGE 1 FOSTER than summer blend fuels, and seasonal demand because fewer people are traveling. However, he said this came to a halt because several reneries in Texas reported some unplanned maintenance going on that is tightening up the supplies in some areas. Other reneries were going through some seasonal maintenance. Still, he remains optimistic. Overall, in coming weeks we should see gas prices continue to fall, he said. We think going into the end of year toward December we should continue to see gas prices continuing to fall around 10-15 cents or maybe more. Some places in Florida could see gas prices under $3.

CTC, which has about 700 students, offers a variety of career training with courses including automotive, culinary, cosmetology, dentistry, nursing and even aeronautics through a partner ship with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Students range from mostly high school or dual-enrollment students who plan to earn their certicates when they graduate to a signicant number of adults who may be career changers. Ive always had a passion for cosmetology, said Tiara Saling, 16, a dual-enrollment student who also attends an online high school, Florida Virtual School. Ive been a waitress for 27 years, and I wanted a career change, said Tonia Sachkar, 47. I was busy raising my kids. After my kids were grown, I decided to do something for myself.

The hogs, which are not native to Florida, feed on roots, tubers and grubs by rooting with their broad snouts, and can leave an area looking like a plowed eld. They also prey on native wildlife, compete with native species for food, and transmit diseases to other wildlife, livestock and humans. Additionally, hogs may facilitate the spread of exotic plant species by transporting seeds and/ or providing germination sites through rooting. Swiftmud will use a three-phase hunting system to alleviate and decrease these impacts. The rst two phases will have separate registration processes. Top producers from Phase 1 will be awarded free hunts for Phase 2; top producers from Phase 2 will be asked to participate in hog-management activities for Phase 3. All hunts will adhere to the hog-dog format. No still hunts will be available. The program works like this: Phase 1 hunts: Registration will occur at 9 a.m. Monday; includes six hunts that occur from November through December; permits are transferable; the top two producers on each hunt will be awarded a free, nontransferable registration to the same hunt location in Phase 2; failure to follow the rules or poor behavior issues will disqualify the registrant for incentive consideration at the sole determination of district staff. Phase 2 hunts: Registration will occur at 9 a.m. Dec. 15; includes six hunts to occur in January and February 2015; permits are transferable; the top two producers on each hunt of Phase 2 will be placed on the districts top producer list, and will be contacted between March and October 2015 to take part in feral hog management hunts on an as-needed basis, free of charge; failure to follow the rules or poor behavior issues will disqualify the registrant for incentive consideration at the sole determination of district staff. Phase 3 as-needed management hunts: Includes management hunts that occur from March through September 2015; only those registrants that qualify as top producers following the Phase 2 hunts will be contacted to take part in management hunts during this period; management hunts offered to top producers will be free and nontransferable; all 12 Phase 2 top producers will be offered participation in a minimum of two management hunts throughout the nonhunting season. Swiftmud-managed properties will be closed to the public temporarily during the hog hunts. Only permitted hunters will be allowed access. Prospective hunters can purchase permits for Phase I hunts beginning at 9 a.m. Monday via http://hoghunts.water matters.org. Permits will be available on a rstcome, rst-served basis until they are sold out. The cost is $75 for each permit. A complete list of hunts with locations and dates will be available on the above website no later than today. In addition, the site provides maps of the properties and rules of the hunt.Sidewalk construction to beginStarting Oct. 13, sidewalk construction on the west side of Taylor Road, between Henry and Cooper streets, will begin.

The Sun /Wednesday, October 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA A Port Charlotte man ar rested Monday afternoon for allegedly shoplifting a pair of ip-ops appar ently didnt learn his lesson. He was arrested again later that day for stealing an SUV from a car dealership, according to a Punta Gorda Police report. Nicholas Michael Jakimer, 27, rst was arrested by a Charlotte County Sheriffs deputy around 1:30 p.m. Monday after trying to walk out of the Walmart in Murdock while wearing a $15 pair of AND1 ip-ops he hadnt paid for, a sheriffs report shows. He was booked into the Charlotte County Jail on a charge of petty theft, and was released at about 6:30 p.m. after posting $1,000 bond. Less than ve hours later, Jakimer became a suspect in a grand theft auto reported from Punta Gorda Buy Here Pay Here a used-car dealership on the corner of Carmalita Street and U.S. 41, which is about 2 miles from the jail. The owner of the missing 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe called the police shortly after 11 p.m. A man had called him saying Jakimer showed up to his house with the vehicle which still had the dealerships stickers on it, the police report shows. The keys had been left in the unlocked vehicle. While police were investigating, an unknown person texted the SUV owner that Jakimer would be returning the vehicle to the dealership. Ofcers were waiting for him. Jakimer, of the 1000 block of Fletcher Street, Port Charlotte, was arrested on charges of grand theft auto and driving with a suspended license. He was held at the Charlotte County Jail Tuesday on $6,000 bond.Suspicious van reported near bus stopsEAST OF PUNTA GORDA The Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce has increased patrols near school bus stops in the Peace River Shores area after reports of a suspicious white van Friday. Two residents off U.S. 17 near the DeSoto County line contacted authorities Friday and said theyve seen a late 1990s model white Ford Econoline in the area near bus stops for about a week. The witnesses said the van was seen around the same time students are getting dropped off in the afternoon. Another caller on Friday reported seeing a man in a suspicious van about a mile south on U.S. 17, between the two sections of Washington Loop Road. The caller said there was a sign on the van that said Free Puppies. Authorities were unable to locate the van. Sheriff Bill Prummell issued the following statement on Tuesday: Children should always be wary of any stranger trying to lure them into a vehicle for any reason. We want our children and their parents to feel safe on their way to and from school. Anyone with infor mation about the van is asked to call the Sheriffs Ofce at 941-639-2101.Authorities seeking armed robberMURDOCK A man who robbed a local gas station at gunpoint Saturday remained at large Tuesday, and the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce is seeking information about the suspect. Just after 11 a.m., an employee at the Circle K and Shell gas station at 1783 Tamiami Trail (next to IHOP) in Murdock was Report: Thief arrested twice in one day | POLICE BEATThe information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriffs office, Florida Highway Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is determined by the court system.DESOTO COUNTY Former Arcadia City Marshal Charles Lee was sentenced Tuesday to three years in prison, followed by 27 years of probation. He is also required to pay back $145,000 to the City of Arcadia, and must serve 207 hours of community service one hour for each check he wrote from the Arcadia Police Department accounts for his own use. Judge Kimberly Bonner of the 12th Judicial Circuit in Sarasota pronounced the sentence after hearing from witnesses for both the prosecution and defense. In May, Lee entered a plea of no contest to charges of obtaining property by fraud and ofcial misconduct. The state dropped a third charge grand theft of over $100,000. Lees theft of $145,000 from the city of Arcadia came to light when the city began a detailed audit. Lee submitted his resignation hurriedly on May 20, 2013, and within days, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement began an investigation into APDs nances. Agent Ryan Walker of FDLE testied Tuesday that he found $151,000 worth of checks, written out of three APD accounts, that had been made either to Lee or to cash. On further investigation, $145,000 was determined to have been taken by Lee for his own personal use. Lee took the stand during his sentencing hearing and said he was remorseful for what he had done. He said he was embarrassed and was sorry for the suffering his family went through. Lee said he started writing checks to himself when his wife lost her job and they were having nancial problems. I made a bad decision, and then I compounded it, he said. I had full intentions of paying it back but it was a slippery slope. He said he didnt use the money to buy fancy cars or jewelry, but to pay his mortgage, his daughters rent, buy an air conditioner for his house, and donate to churches. I take full responsibility, he said. I let down my friends, my family, and the community. Lee has not paid back any of the money he took from the city. He testied he lost his rights to his pension and that he would have gotten about $150,000 for his retirement. He said he got back around $50,000 to $70,000 of the money he had put into his pension program, and used that money to pay down his mortgage so my wife would not be homeless, he said. He did not give any of that money to the city. Newly appointed Interim City Administrator Beth Carsten, formerly the nance director, testied that the city has now changed the way funds are given to APD for its expenses. They must now submit a Purchase Order through the citys Finance Department. There are no longer sepa rate APD accounts. She said the loss of $145,000 impacts the city because it already has nancial difculties. The city police havent had new vehicles they have difculties just buying bullets, she said. As to morale at APD, she said, This was like a punch in the stomach. Following the hearing, Lee was ngerprinted and given a few minutes to say goodbye to his family before being escorted to the DeSoto County Jail. Lee could have been sentenced up to 30 years for each of the crimes to which he pleaded. Former Arcadia marshal sentenced to three yearsBy SUSAN E.

Our Town Page 10 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, October 1, 2014 Threat of radical terrorists is realEditor: Recently, I wrote an article to the Sun stating my fears for Western nations if radical Islamic terrorism continued to grow. Unfortunately I appear to have been closer than I thought. Lets look at some facts. Austria has 475,000 Muslims living there or 5.7 percent of the population; Belgium has 638,000, 6 percent; Bulgaria 1,002,000, 13.4 percent; Canada, 940,000, 5 percent; Denmark, 227,000, 4.1 percent; France, 4704,000, 7.5 percent; Germany, 4,199,000, 5 percent; Sweden, 453,000, 4.9 percent; Switzerland, 433,000, 5.7 per cent; UK, 2,869,000, 4.6 per cent; USA, 2,595,000, 8 percent; Italy, 1,583,000, 2.6 percent. And that doesnt count Spain North Africa, Malaysia, Burma and others with large Muslim populations. With the rapidly expanding threat of global radical Islamists this is becoming a frightening prospect. Even if only 1 percent of these gures are potential radical terrorists, this is becoming a fearful fact to contemplate. Take the USA, at 1 percent we have 25,950 possible radical Islamics living here, the Netherlands has 53,000, France, 47,000 and so on. If 1 percent of these people could possibly be members of a radical Islamic terrorist group just think of the potential threat. Australia recently arrest ed 18 of its Islamic citizens due to plans for mass beheadings. Wake up, world.Robert V. Thompson Punta GordaWildlife Center should move onEditor: As a former professional and now a volunteer fundraiser I think the Peace River Wildlife Center should take this opportunity to pick up and move to a new location. The time is right and the heart,strings of thousands of Charlotte County residents can be pulled because of this controversy. Why would a not-for-prot board with any management skills and future vision want to stay on the land that is potentially in limbo? Stop, think, plan and carpe diem PRWC! Turn the lemons into lemonaide!Constance Robison Punta GordaRepublicans are all for the richEditor: I nd it very disconcerting that people in a major party like the Republicans would allow themselves to become dumbed down by the cor porate mentality that infects them. One only has to listen to their popular programs, like Limbaugh, Fox News, Duck Dynasty and Honey Boo Boo to realize what boobs they have become. They glorify redneck stupidity while railing against programs like Common Core that promote critical thinking, raising the minimum wage that would improve our economy and refuse to move on immigration reform when this country was founded on the backs of their own migrant forefathers. They shut down the government costing us billions in an attempt to keep the American people from getting medical insurance and then wasted time and money trying to repeal the law 51 times rather than do their jobs. Now instead of passing desperately needed legislation they go on recess! As tempera tures in Florida continue to rise, they continue denying climate change to benet their big oil and coal benefactors at the peril of the human race! These people live in a world where religion is substituted for science and their beliefs run contrary to reality. I dont believe anyone should vote for populations who do not represent their constituents. The Republicans epitomize the out-of touch pollination who only represent the interests of the rich and the well-connected fat cats like the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson. I say it is time for a change!Dennis Bischof Port CharlotteGarbage in, garbage outEditor: A recent letter writer complained about President Obamas ring of top military leaders. The writer was using information he got on a conservative junk sheet. By checking actual facts anyone with an open mind would see that all the leaders were removed for reasons such as adultery, gambling using false chips at a casino, lack of judgment at a nuclear arms depot, and other proven breaches of honorable military service. The writer goes on to say verication can be found on the American Dream News website, he obviously doesnt know that this newspaper should be on newsstands next to the Enquirer and other garbage gossip rags.Joseph A. Del Bonis Rotonda WestNo credits for set decoration?Editor: Why? Why when plays are reviewed or previewed, the person or persons who design the sets and are in charge of set decor are never mentioned, as are the producer, director and cast members? Surely the designers of the set for the comedy, Dont Talk to the Actors, presented at Lemon Bay Playhouse, Sept. 3-21 were deserving of credit for its outstanding design. The theater program lists Jim Choate and Jim Suchomel as set designers and Jim Choate for set decor. What made this set special? A three-window unit on the left side of the set. Not faux windows. These were actual windows with half-raised venetian blinds, behind which the audience could see a skyscape of Manhattan. Not poster-pictures of skyscrapers, but meticulously painted facades. I recently learned more than 50 hours went into executing this set by the two volunteers. To those writers who do theater reviews: How about some mention of the folks who are willing to put this kind of effort into enhancing a stage presentation?Gail H. WeissPriorities askew in this nationEditor: I have some serious issues with the way certain things are handled in this country. We cant x our own health care system or our Veterans Affairs but we can send millions and millions of dollars to ght Ebola in Africa. We jump on the Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin bandwagon and are mum on a beheading of a white woman in Oklahoma by a black man. We are using resources on court decisions about whether voter IDs are legal while we demand ID to drive, drink, marry, y on an airplane, enter an arena, and to see a doctor. We dont allow a kid to share a sandwich at school but we send foreign aid to nearly all the countries in the world. We dont know what to do about our own homeless people but we open our doors to thousands and thousands who ow across the border needing every service we offer. We need to adjust our prior ities to put Americans and the rule of law above all else. God bless our nation.Verna Rock Port CharlotteLobster Bake a big successEditor: A huge thank you to all who made our 14th Authentic Maine Lobster Bake a success. Looking forward to next year.Frank Desguin Punta GordaReturn power to the peopleEditor: In our lives there are so many demands: family, work, school, church and civic. We are tired, broke and discouraged. We hear about instances of voter fraud, untruthful politicians, graft, corruption, war and terrorism. We are living with chaos every day. This is a carefully constructed plan to keep us in turmoil and away from the polls. And it is working. All you complacent or under-informed folks, please spend some time to get the facts from people in the know, not the TV ads. When you fail to vote, vote party lines, or carry someone elses recommendations into the polls, you are part of the problem, not the solution. Being disengaged is costing us our country. Those of you who have a clue, dedicate some time to getting out voters, informing your friends and neighbors, and speaking out. Lets return the power to the people.Shirley Reynolds EnglewoodRelying on the maturing economyOUR POSITION: You dont have to look too far around here to understand how much Floridas economy is driven by the 50-plus population.This time of year, Florida goes from being an old place to an even older place as seasonal visitors begin their trek back south again. It may seem an inconvenience to young and old full-time residents, at times. But the migration and the mature economy it contributes to is critical to this states economy. From Del Boca Vista and Miami Beach to Kings Gate and The Villages, older people are the bedrock of our economy. Just how much is the subject of a study released this week by the AARP and Oxford Economics. The purpose of the report, Longevity Economy, is to highlight the demographic and to lobby legislators to do more to support and attract older citizens to Florida. The AARP defines mature as age 50 and above, which may seem on the young side here. Nevertheless, this segment comprises 39 percent of the states population. In Sarasota County, the percentage rises to between 45 and 55, and in Charlotte County it jumps to 55-65 percent. Statewide, the segment is expected to grow by only 2 percent from now until 2040. A ccording to the report, the Longevity Economy: Accounted for 54 percent of the states GDP a total of $429 billion. Supported 58 percent (6.1 million) of all jobs. Accounted for 53 percent ($236 billion) of employee compensation. Provided 67 percent ($38 billion) of state and local taxes. A further breakdown of jobs shows: The largest single economic segment for jobs supported by the 50-plus population was in the health care sector, 1,099,000. (Other recorded 1,606,000). Retail jobs were second with 1,074,000. Lodging and food accounted for 617,000 jobs. Over-50 households accounted for $364 million in consumer spending. (By comparison, under-50s spent just over $250 million). High on the list for spending was health care (71 percent overall) and financial services (62 percent.) And then there were the jobs. Some 62 percent of 50-64-year-olds were employed or 34 percent of the states total workforce. Forty-two per cent were professionals and 15 percent were self-employed entrepreneurs. One significant point made by the AARP was we often tended to take the older demo graphic for granted: People moved here in the past and will likely continue in the future. Yes, the baby boomer gener ation is large and Florida will continue to attract a percentage of encore careerists and retirees, especially along the relatively unspoiled Southwest Coast. But other states are competing more heavily to be senior-friendly. As an AARP official pointed out, the Carolinas and Tennessee have aggressive marketing campaigns aimed at attracting this desirable demographic. Florida may want to reassess its own efforts. We dont want to assume the older population will move here just because they have in the past.Joan Rivers gave to many charitiesEditor: I must respond to a letter (9/27/2014) under the title of Not A Big Fan Of Joan Rivers chastising her for thinking more of her dogs than she did of cancer victims, veterans, etc. you name it.

The Sun /Wednesday, October 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINT Charlotte Countys fiscal year 2014/15 begins today. Most of the questions and reactions I get from citizens about the budget are the result of a structure that is convoluted (even to me) but is mandated by state statutes and government accounting principles. This budget belongs to the citizens of Char lotte County and my goal is to make it as transparent and intuitive as possible hopefully by explaining some of the complexities I can advance that goal. The rst factor is that governmental budgets are based on fund accounting. Perhaps you have heard comingling of funds, which means it is improper or even illegal to take monies designated for a specic purpose and mix them with other monies. There must be a clear accounting separation of how these monies are maintained and spent. Most governmental income, such as grants, nes and taxes, falls into this category. As a result, the budget that was passed in September consisted of 131 distinct funds. Because there are so many, when you have a question about where your tax dollars are going, it is important to know which tax dollar you are talking about. Property taxes go to support general operations and law enforcement. Gas tax supports roads and drainage. Assessments stay within the district for which they are charged. The list goes on and on. The second factor is that monies are budgeted to be transferred between these funds and that causes the overall budget to be articially inated. For example, a small portion of state sales tax is allocated back to each county. This is budgeted as revenue within the general fund. A portion of those dollars are then transferred out to various grant funds to cover the countys match money for each grant this is budgeted as an expenditure. Within the grant, funds that transfer-in are budgeted as revenue and then spent for the grants purpose. In the total county budget, the same money has been budgeted twice; once in the general fund and once in the grant fund. You will sometimes hear that the Countys budget is $915 million; however, $110 million of that is this double counting from trans fers between funds. The third factor is that state statute requires counties to budget for reserves and beginning balances. This would be the equivalent of you including your savings account in your household budget even though you have no intention of spending it. Lets say your annual income is $50,000 and you have put $100,000 in your savings over the years, when you develop your household budget you base it on $50,000 not $150,000. Yet local governments, in the interest of full disclosure, are required to do just that. So out of the budget of $900 million, $214 million is the savings account or reserves. Your reason for having a savings account is probably to meet major expenses you know are coming (retirement) and also to meet unexpected expenses (medical bills). The county is the same we have known major future expenses (landll closure, capital projects) and we need contingencies for the unexpected (hurricanes). The last factor I would point out is the nature of expenditures for which we budget, specically the difference between our operating budget and capital budget. As a county with only one incorporated area Punta Gorda Charlotte County is responsible for the vast majority of capital projects that occur within our boundaries. In fact, 43 percent of the budget is designated for capital projects, which can be as small as resurfacing tennis courts to as large as widening Burnt Store Road. Five years ago our capital budget was $178 million, this year it is $254 million, an increase of 42 percent. Most of this increase is the result of four large road projects that have been in the planning stages and are now beginning construction. On the other hand, our operating budget has remained very stable. Five years ago our operating budget was $341 million, for the 2014/15 budget it is reduced to $337 million. To recap, our total budget for 2014/15 is $915 million. When we subtract the $110 million of double counting that results from transfers and the $214 million in reserves, we end up with a net budget of $591 million. Of that $591 million, $254 million is for one-time capital projects, leaving $337 million for the on-going operations of the county. I hope I have made it a little easier to decipher the barrage of numbers that the budget can be and I invite you to check out the information on the countys website CharlotteCountyFL. gov. On the Transparency page, click View Budget Process Information. Here we have indexed all of the information pertaining to the budget and the process behind developing it. For a ve-year history of the issues I have discussed above as well as other key factors, view the one page summary titled -Year Budget History. As a citizen of Charlotte County this is your budget and there are multiple opportunities for you to have input into the process. Even though the 2014/15 budget begins today we have already begun putting together the calendar for the 2015/16 and 2016/17 bi ennial budget process. This November we will be conducting our citizens survey, beginning in December we invite all citizens to give us feedback online and in January there will be public input meetings to garner your input. I hope we will be hearing from you. Gordon Burger is the Charlotte County budget director. Readers may reach him at gordon. burger@charlotte.com.Complexities of the county budget Gordon Burger A Charlotte Sun Sept. 23 editorial regarding a recent-ly heard height variance request in conjunction with allowing the Peace River Wildlife Center to contin-ue operations states that according to the owners attorney, it was city staff who approached the prop-erty owners to submit a new variance request with a stipulation that it would convey the wildlife center property to the city. The editorial goes on to state once again that the sugges-tion came from the city. We realize that editorials are just opinions but it would have been more construc-tive for the editorial staff to check with the city prior to its publication. Now here are the facts. Staff repeat-edly works in concert with developers and builders to try and provide practical, partnership solutions to development issues. This is one of our basic tenants in moving our community forward, and our revitaliza-tion over the past 10 years is a testament to its success. It is also any landown-ers right to apply for any variance they so desire; however, city staff has con-sistently supported height limitations within the land development regulations. Why is that? In numerous community meetings over the past 10 years, retention of height limitations along the water in residential neighborhoods has been a recurring theme from a majority of our residents. So here is a recap of events: Staff was approached by the Peace River Wildlife Center in December 2013 regarding a request for expansion for a new veterinary hospital. Staff met with a representative on Dec. 5, 2013, and did a site visit on Dec. 12. On Jan. 6, 2014, PRWC brought in a proposed sketch of the requested expansion. The request was put on the Jan. 22 City Council meeting agenda however, since there was no survey of the property, and that it was discovered in 2005 that a large portion of the wildlife center was located on private property, the request was withdrawn in order for the wildlife cen-ter to obtain an agreement with the property owner. Staff worked with the representative of the wild-life center in order to help achieve such an agreement with the property owner. To that end, staff sent an email to the property owner on Jan. 24 explaining the issue and requesting he consider allowing the wildlife center to remain on the property. On Feb. 3, the property owner asked what they (PRWC) wanted to do with the site and for how long. Staff explained that the request was for some sort of an agreement so the Center could remain on the land for an extended period of time. On Feb. 7, staff had a meeting with the property owners attorney. It was indicated that the property owner would not enter into a long-term lease with the PRWC because the upland parcel was planned for amenities. At that time the attorney, not City staff, said should the City be willing to favorably consider a height variance the owner would be willing to convey the property that the PRWC occupies to the wildlife center. Back in 2005, City Council and staff did not regard a similar request in a favorable light. Nothing has changed nine years later. On Feb. 11, the PWRC representative sent an email to the property own-er requesting a resolution to the issue in order for the Center to remain in its current location. It was the property owner and PWRC who put forth the variance as a method to secure additional height and at the same time allow for the Center to remain in its location in the Ponce Park environs. The variance request was submitted on or about Aug. 22. This request was for three buildings to be 76 feet in height from base ood elevation, plus an additional 10 feet for the rooine, and to allow six habitable stories over parking, instead of three habitable stories over parking as is permitted. The 2005 request was for 59 feet to the tie beam from base ood elevation instead of 40 feet as required by code. It also included ve habitable stories over parking. Staff reviewed the 2014 application and rec-ommended denial to the Board of Zoning Appeals. On Sept. 23, the BZA held its monthly meeting at which the applicant withdraws the variance application. It is unfortunate that a resolution couldnt be reached at this time. We will continue to work with the PRWC in an effort to help the organization achieve its operational and expansion plans.

Our Town Page 12 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, October 1, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT For a second day, city Public Works employees were counseled on the ramications of cheating on Federal Emergency Management Agency testing. No one was asked if he had cheated. While North Port City Manager Jonathan Lewis didnt want the claims of allegedly 50-plus workers potentially cheating on FEMA certication tests to be investigated just because they were reported in the media, Public Works Director Branford Adumuah believed it was necessary. Lewis, Adumuah and city commissioners received letters from residents questioning why nothing would be done to learn that employees may have been using cheat sheets for years. I am still not prepared to initiate an investiga tion based on a (reporters) claims, nor have I gotten a complaint from an employee, Lewis wrote in an email to commissioners Tuesday morning. However, the Public Works Director has requested that we initiate an investigation by someone external to the Department. This is something I am willing to support. By the afternoon, Lewis and Adumuah worked out the details. Mr. (Steve) Uebelacker will be starting the investigation immediately, and will proceed accordingly, Lewis wrote to commissioners. During the duration of the investigation, employees are encouraged to try and refrain from discussing this issue. Mr. Uebelacker has a long history in conducting investigations and has experience as an ethics ofcer. Uebelacker has been conducting internal investigations on complaints against North Port police ofcers. On a slightly different issue, you all know how important I feel emer gency preparedness is for a community, Lewis wrote. Since there are allegedly employees who feel they do not have a working knowledge on the ICS, I am requiring that all of the Public Works Operations Division employees retake the required courses and tests. Monday, administrators and commissioners learned the cheating may not have been contained to the Public Works department. Reportedly, one employee in the Utilities Division allegedly took the test for several others, and cheat sheets allegedly were made available for the online FEMA tests. If an investigation is necessary, we shall per form one, Rick Newkirk, Utilities director, wrote in an email to the Sun He didnt offer details, including if employees would have to retake the tests or if Uebelacker would be conducting the investigation. City employees say they still havent been asked outright if they cheated, only to come forward with a complaint regarding answer-sharing on the tests. The tests are designed for rst and secondary responders to understand how emer gency operations run during crisis situations, like a hurricane or other natural disaster. Some employees said they werent procient in operating a computer, and therefore werent able to pass without help. Some said its been going on for years, long before Lewis became the city manager in 2011. Others said using the cheat sheets was a way the department saved time and got employees back out in the eld. Some employees said, despite using the cheat sheets, they still failed the test. FEMA allows for retakes in order to earn the certication. Adumuah said the district is continuously exploring and providing appropriate and applicable training to its employees to increase their productivity and effectiveness. Computerliteracy training is one of them. The allegations are serious, and are beginning to distract the department from its mission, he said. Any issues that come out of the investigation will be addressed accordingly, so we can move on. We have worked very hard in the past nine years to build the image and credibility of the department, and we owe it to ourselves and the community not to do anything to tarnish our reputation and integrity.Email: eallen@sun-herald.comNorth Port to investigate FEMA cheating claimsBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHSTAFF WRITER walking to his vehicle in the parking lot when a man with what appeared to be a black handgun approached him and demanded the employee turn over his possessions. The suspect is described as a white male in his early 20s with dark brown hair, and is about 6 feet tall, weighing around 175 pounds. He left the scene in a silver or gray four-door vehicle with a temporary tag. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Sheriffs Ofce at 941-639-2101, and ask for Major Crimes; or call Crime Stoppers at 800-780-TIPS (8477).Report: Trio steal copper wireCHARLOTTE COUNTY An off-duty Charlotte County deputy helped lead to the arrest of three alleged copper thieves Monday. Around 1 p.m., the deputy on Kings Highway in southern DeSoto County noticed what she thought was a burglary in progress, so she contacted the DeSoto County Sheriffs Ofce. The vehicle that was at the burglary site left, so the off-duty Charlotte deputy followed it until authorities from both counties could stop it near Tuckers Grade and Interstate 75, south of Punta Gorda in Charlotte County, the report shows. The driver Myles Ray Cope, 35, of the 33600 block of Oil Well Road, south of Punta Gorda was arrested after an investigation into existing cases on two counts each of grand theft and dealing in stolen property, for two incidents in which he took electrical wire from the roof connection to electrical meters in Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda, authorities said. Ofcials searched the area for other suspects, but rainy weather cut it short. As a result of the investigation into old cases for which Cope was arrested, authorities also charged Samuel Ross Centanne, 38, of the 21400 block of Olean Boulevard, Port Charlotte, with the same counts as Cope, as well as three counts of giving false verication of ownership. Adam Lee Provencal, 35, of the 21400 block of Gladis Avenue, Port Charlotte, was arrested Tuesday in relation to at least one of the copper thefts too. He was still being booked Tuesday afternoon, so his charge information was unavailable. Cope remained at the Charlotte County Jail Tuesday on $100,000 bond, and Centanne was being held without bond. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Office reported the following arrests: Larry Alan Burns, 71, 11300 block of Second Ave., Punta Gorda. Charge: violation of probation (original charges: driving without registration and driving with an unassigned license plate). Bond: $460. John William Dudash, 24, 4700 block of Taneytown St., North Port. Charges: resisting a retail merchant and petty theft third or subsequent offense. Bond: $10,000. James Robert Harris, 35, 400 block of Plantation Road, Venice. Charges: driving with a suspended license, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond: $8,000.

The unidentied patient was critically ill and has been in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital since Sunday, ofcials said. Health authorities have begun tracking down family and friends who may have had close contact with the patient and could be at risk for becoming ill. But ofcials said there are no other suspected cases in Texas. At the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Tom Frieden said the patient left Liberia on Sept. 19, arrived the next day to visit family and started feeling ill four or ve days later. He said it was not clear how the per son became infected. Frieden said there was no risk to anyone on the airplane because the patient had no symptoms at the time of the ight.

Increased seismic activity raised concern Tuesday about the possibility of another eruption at the Japanese volcano where dozens of people were killed by Saturdays initial eruption, forcing rescuers to suspend plans to try to recover at least two dozen bodies still near the summit. See the story on page 4.Volcano rumblesWASHINGTON Education is supposed to help bridge the gap between the wealthiest people and everyone else. Ask the experts, and theyll count the ways: Preschool can lift children from poverty. Top high schools prepare students for college. A college degree boosts pay over a lifetime. And the U.S. economy would grow faster if more people stayed in school longer. Plenty of data back them up. But the data also show something else: Wealthier parents have been stepping up education spending so aggressively that theyre widening the nations wealth gap. When the Great Recession struck in late 2007 and squeezed most family budgets, the top 10 percent of earners with incomes averaging $253,146 went in a different direction: They doubled down on their kids futures. Their average education spending per child jumped 35 percent to $5,210 a year during the recession compared with the two preceding years and they sustained that faster pace through the recovery. For the remaining 90 percent of households, such spending averaged around a at $1,000, according to research by Emory University sociologist Sabino Kornrich. People at the top just have so much income now that theyre easily able to spend more on their kids, Kornrich said. The sums being spent by wealthier parents amount to a kind of calculated investment in their children.

IS took over last night, the power plants foreman shouted, referring to the Islamic State group. Empty your trucks and run! Simsek rushed to unload his tankers fuel, he said, but it was too late. A battered pickup bearing the black-and-white logo of the Islamic State group rolled across the tarmac. Qayaras security guards, who only moments before had been joking around with the truckers, turned on the men, donning black masks and brandishing weapons taking all 32 Turkish men hostage. For many foreigners, being caught by the groups fanatical ghters has meant months of uncertainty, torture and, in some cases, a gruesome death. For Simsek and his colleagues, captivity would last just over three weeks. Their trucks were conscated, but no one was harmed and no ransom was paid, according to a narrative of the June 10 attack and its aftermath pieced together by The Associated Press from interviews with drivers and a company executive. The episode paints a picture of a militant group unusually careful not to anger Turkeys government, and may offer insights into the mysterious release of 49 hostages from Turkeys consulate in Mosul, Iraq, just over a week ago. The Islamic State treated these hostages in the way they did because they dont Islamic State may be wary of upsetting TurkeyBy BERZA SIMSEK and RAPHAEL SATTERASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERSWARY | 4 The states consumer condence has reached a post-recession high, according to a University of Florida report released Tuesday. On a scale from two to 150, condence among Floridians sits at 83, a point higher than in August, and the highest mark since April 2007, according to a release from UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. The small monthly rise was seen across all ages and income levels, in part because gas prices have fallen and because of growth in the perception that now is a good time to buy big-ticket items such as cars and appliances. While we are still about 10 points behind where we would like to be at this point in a recovery, condence among Floridians is heading in the right direction, Chris McCarty, director of the research center, said in a prepared statement.

US-led airstrikes hit Islamic State near TurkeyBEIRUT (AP) U.S.led coalition airstrikes targeted ghters, vehicles and artillery pieces of the Islamic State group on both sides of the SyriaIraq frontier Tuesday, including around a beleaguered Kurdish town near the Syrian-Turkish border that is under assault by the militants, activists said. The aerial campaign, which began last week in Syria and last month in Iraq, aims to destroy the extremist faction known as the Islamic State, which has seized control of a huge chunk of territory stretching from northern Syria to the western outskirts of the Iraqi capital.Afghanistan, US sign long-awaited security pactKABUL, Afghanistan (AP) Afghanistan and the United States signed a security pact on Tuesday to allow U.S. forces to remain in the country past the end of the year, ending a year of uncertainty over the fate of foreign troops supporting Afghans as they take over the ght against the Taliban insurgency. Under the pact, along with a separate deal signed with NATO, about 10,000 American troops and several thousand more from other NATO countries will stay to train and advise Afghan forces, after the international combat mission ends Dec. 31.Report: Kim Jong Un had ankle surgeryTOKYO (Bloomberg) North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been hospitalized after surgery on both ankles earlier this month, a South Korean newspaper reported.

The person said Kim had surgery and is recovering at Bongwha Clinic, an exclusive hospital for high-ranking party members, according to the newspaper. Kim has not been seen in public in almost a month and missed a session of parliament on Sept. 25 for the rst time since coming to power almost three years ago.

But her promised review of how the storied but blemished agency carries out its mission of protecting the president and how it failed to intercept the intruder much earlier left lawmakers from both parties cold. With key details of the extraordinary intrusion still a mystery 11 days afterward, several lawmakers said the agency should be subjected to an independent inquiry. | NATIONCalifornia bans plastic bagsSACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed the nations rst statewide ban on single-use plastic bags at grocery and convenience stores, driven to action by pollution in streets and waterways. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of checkout counters at large grocery stores and supermarkets such as Walmart and Target starting next summer, and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law does not apply to bags used for fruits, vegetables or meats, or to shopping bags used at other retailers. It allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags.Boeing plans 2,000 job cuts in defense work(The Seattle Times) In the latest drain of high-paying Boeing jobs out of Washington state, the jet makers defense division said Monday it will shift about 2,000 jobs, mostly in engineering, out of the region by 2017. Some workers with critical skills will be offered relocation to Oklahoma City, Okla., and St. Louis, Mo. Others may nd jobs at Boeings commercial jet unit, based in Washington. The number of layoffs wont be known until Boeing nds out how many people relocate, transfer or choose to leave. The jet maker currently employs a total of about 5,200 people in defense work in the region, so the moves will cut deeply into that total.Home prices rise at slowest pace in almost 2 yearsWASHINGTON (Bloomberg) Home prices in 20 U.S. cities rose in the year ended in July at the slowest pace in almost two years as still-tight credit and limited wage gains weigh on demand.

Nationally, prices rose 5.6 percent after a 6.3 percent gain in the year ended June. SALHIYAH, Iraq (AP) Kurdish ghters in northern Iraq captured a border crossing with Syria on Tuesday, expelling Islamic State militants in heavy ghting that ground down to vicious house-to-house combat and close quar ters sniping. In neighboring Syria, Kurdish militiamen were on the defensive as the extremists pressed ahead with a relentless assault on a town near the Turkish border. The attack on Kobani, also known as Ayn Arab, has driven more than 160,000 people across the frontier in the past few days. Iraqi Kurdish ghters, known as peshmerga, were doing the bulk of the ghting on the ground as a U.S.-led coalition carried out an aerial assault against the Islamic State group in both Iraq and Syria. Britain joined the air campaign Tuesday, car rying out its rst strikes against the extremists in Iraq though it does not plan to expand into Syria. The goal of the campaign is to push back the militant group that has declared a self-styled caliphate, or Islamic state, ruled by its brutal interpretation of Islam in territory it has seized across much of Iraq and Syria. On Tuesday, Kurdish ghters in Iraq said they saw some of the heaviest ghting yet. Peshmerga spokesman Halgurd Hekmat told The Associated Press the Kurds seized the border crossing of Rabia, which the extremists captured in their blitz across Iraq over the summer. Rami Abdurrahman, the director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, also said the Kurds had retaken the border post. He said Syrian Kurdish militiamen, who control the Syrian side of the frontier, had helped in the ght. Kurds wounded in the ghting were brought to a makeshift clinic in the town of Salhiyah, where dusty and exhausted, they described savage battles, with militants sniping at them from inside homes and from the windows of a hospital in Rabia. Theyre such good ghters, said one soldier, resting outside the clinic on a rock surrounded by bloodsoaked bandages. He refused to be identied because he was not a senior ofcer. Theyre ghting with weapons the Iraqi military abandoned so, American weapons really. Fighters at the clinic described how the peshmerga rst took the town of Mahmoudiya near the Syrian border on Monday, then moved down the highway to assault Rabia. The two sides had intense clashes overnight, with Islamic State group snipers shooting from inside houses and setting off roadside bombs. Peshmerga ghters advanced on a ve-story hospital in the city, only to be ambushed by some two dozen militants inside, the ghters said. Hekmat said the Kurdish ghters intended to push farther south toward the town of Sinjar, which the extremists took last month, prompting the ight of members of the small Yazidi religious sect. In Britains rst air strikes of the campaign, two Tornado jets hit a heavy weapons post and an armored vehicle being used by the militants to attack Kurdish forces in northwest Iraq, British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon said in London.Kurds claim advances in Iraq as Britain joins fray AP PHOTOSyrian refugees arrive at the Turkey-Syria border near Suruc, Turkey, Tuesday. LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) A high school student was injured and one person was being sought after a shooting at a high school in southern Louisville, police said Tuesday. The student had nonlife threatening injuries and was reunited with parents at University Hospital, Ofcer Phil Russell said. He didnt say if the injured student and shooter knew each other or if the shooter was a student at Fern Creek Traditional High School. Russell said the suspect left the 1,400-student school immediately after ring the shot. It appears it is an isolated incident that happened just inside the school, Russell said. Obviously a large crime scene, but it was isolated to just inside the building. Video from television stations showed police escorting students with their hands over their heads out of the school in the southern part of the city to a nearby softball eld. Police cars surrounded the 91-year-old school. Dajon Rhodes, a 17-year-old junior at the school, was on the third oor when she heard shots red. I just heard a loud pow-pow and I took off running, Rhodes said. Rhodes, who said she has a class with the student who was shot, ran from the room away from the sound. After a few minutes, students were herded back into the classrooms and the doors locked. The police came and told everyone to get on the ground and stay away from the door. They were running around with their guns out, Rhodes said. Tiata Rodgers, parent of a senior at Fern Creek said her 17-year-old son called right after hearing a gunshot. Rodgers said her son whispered into the phone, but she didnt believe him. Rogers said her son told her, No this is real. Theyre shooting. The student said after the shooting everybody just went running every where, shoving kids in classrooms and locking the doors, Rodgers said.Shots fired at Ky. school, 1 student hurt NEW YORK (AP) EBay is splitting off its fastest growing segment, payment service PayPal, the e-commerce company said Tuesday. Investors applauded the news, sending eBays shares up nearly 7 percent in morning trading. The move comes after months of pressure from activist investor and billionaire Carl Icahn, who has a 2.5 percent state in eBay, according to FactSet. EBay CEO John Donahoe had been adamant that splitting off PayPal was the wrong move for the company. But Tuesday, the company said that making the payment service a separate publicly traded company next year maximizes strategic focus and exibility for eBay. Acquired by eBay in 2002 for $1.3 billion, PayPal became eBays fastest-growing segment. It lets customers use their bank accounts to make payments and money transfers without using credit or debit cards or checks. It makes money by charging a fee for many transactions. It is also a growing force in the mobile payment arena with its acquisition of companies like Braintree and its One Touch mobile payment service. Although it has not become mainstream yet, the mobile pay ment sector is growing quickly. Citi Investment Research analyst Mark May said in a note earlier this month that the sum total of mobile payments could grow from $1 billion in 2013 to $58.4 billion by 2017. Apple threw down a gauntlet in September with its own digital wallet Apple Pay, seen as a major competitor to PayPal. The payments landscape is hyper-competitive, the pace of change is accelerating and everyone is gunning for PayPal, said Forrester analyst Denee Carrington. The split will give PayPal greater agility to help it achieve its full potential. Donahoe also said he will step down as CEO of eBay after overseeing the separation of the two companies and will not have a management role in either of the two afterward. He may have a seat on the board at one or both, along with eBay Chief Financial Officer Bob Swan. Dan Schulman, an executive at American Express, will be the new president at PayPal, effective immediately. The 56-year-old will become PayPals CEO once the separation takes place.EBay to split off PayPal business 471026 50471022 Premier Laser Gum Surgery Provider Charlotte Countys Premier LANAP Provider Dr. Joseph Faraq Excellence in Comprehensive and Implant Dentistry Joseph H.

If Turkey decided to crack down on the Islamic States support, recruitment, fundraising and oil-selling networks that run through Turkey, that would have a major impact on Islamic States ability to take and hold territory in Syria and Iraq. Turkey has been a reluctant member of the coalition ghting the Islamic State group. Until the latest hostage release, Turkish leaders had said they would not consider joining the coalition. In recent days, under intense pressure from NATO allies, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said he is mulling unspecied military cooperation. Turkish officials reject the suggestion that theyve tiptoed around the terror group, and appear to have recently made strides in inter cepting foreign fighters and cracking down on oil smuggling. When asked whether Turkey is ambivalent toward the Islamic State militants, an adviser to the Turkish prime minister told AP: Absolutely no. We as a country have been the subject of terrorist activities for the past 30 years, Cemalettin Hasimi said. We know what it means. Whatever the Turkish position, the Islamic State groups actions seem to reect a certain pragmatism regarding Turkey. For one thing, its not clear whether the Turkish truckers were meant to have been captured. Vehbi Demir, one of the few truckers who spoke Arabic, said the atmosphere at a safe house where the Islamic State militants took some of them that morning was one of confusion and panic. He said he overheard a conversation between the kidnappers leader, an Iraqi going by the name of Abu Abdullah, and his superiors. Demir said Abu Abdullahs voice went at after informing them that he had kidnapped a bunch of Turks. It seems they werent happy about it, Demir said. For a while, two groups of truckers were kept separately some at the safe house, the others at the power plant but four days after the kidnapping the truckers and their vehi cles were driven, under guard, to a U.S.-built aireld between Mosul and Qayara. There, they were parked in a semi-enclosed engineering bay surrounded by fourmeter-high concrete walls. The place was hot, dusty and crawling with scorpions, but despite the uncomfortable conditions the Turks said they were treated well. The guard was relaxed. Drivers kept the keys to their trucks and could occasionally retreat to their air-conditioned cabs to watch satellite television and even use the batteries to recharge smartphones, which a few had kept hidden from their captors. Food deliveries were irregular but included bread, cucumbers, watermelon and meat, which the truckers cooked with camping cylinders and bits of wood. Sometimes their Islamic State guards brought so much to eat that the truckers had to watch their leftover chicken and tomatoes wilt in the 120 F heat.WARYFROM PAGE 1 job security and high salaries. The trend emerged gradually over the past three decades but accelerated during the worst economic slump since the 1930s. Now, enrollments at pricier private schools are climbing. Parents are bidding up home prices in top public school districts. Pay is surging for SAT tutors, who now average twice the median U.S. hourly wage of $24.45. The patterns suggest that the wealth gap could widen in coming years, analysts say. If youre at the bottom and the top keeps pulling away, youre just further behind, said Melissa Kearney, a senior economics fellow at the Brookings Institution. Between 2007 and 2011, enrollment at private elementary and secondary schools whose annual tuition averaged $28,340 jumped 36 per cent, according to federal data. The intensied reach for the costliest schools occurred even as enrollment in private schools overall fell. What we know about parents who send their kids to private school is that by and large they place a very high priority on education, said John Chubb, president of the National Association of Independent Schools. As prices go up, they may be frustrated and angry, but they nd a way to make it work. Most families cant compete. Incomes have barely budged for most Americans since 1980 after accounting for ination. For the top 10 percent, IRS data show pay has jumped 80 percent after ination. For the top 1 percent, its soared 177 percent. The education divide has grown despite the multi-decade presence of Head Start, the federal program for nutrition and early childhood education. Most states rely primarily on a private preschool system that can reinforce the wealth gap, said Sean Reardon, a Stanford University professor who has studied education and income inequality. Among those spending more is Marisela Martinez-Colas family. A suburban Atlanta mother, Martinez-Cola sends her 7-year-old son to private school and has hired a tutor to improve his reading expenses made possible by her husbands salary as a regional buyer for Costco Wholesale. Many families also pay a premium to live in top public school districts. Homes in top-rated school zones command a 32 percent premium over the national average, real estate data rm Trulia has found.GAPFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOTysha Wheeler-Timmons watches from the doorway as daughter Shayla leaves home for school before sunrise Tuesday, in Rahway, N.J.

The disease is not contagious until symptoms begin, and it takes close contact with bodily uids to spread. The bottom line here is that I have no doubt we will control this importation, or this case of Ebola, so that it does not spread widely in this country, Frieden told a news conference. It is certainly possible that someone who had contact with this individual, a family member or other individual, could develop Ebola in the coming weeks, he added. But there is no doubt in my mind that we will stop it here. Frieden updated President Barack Obama on the patient and the public health investigation, the White House said. Frieden said he believed the case also marked the rst time this strain of Ebola has been diagnosed outside of West Africa. Four American aid workers who became infected while volunteering in West Africa have been own back to the U.S. for treatment after they became sick. They were cared for in special isolation facilities at hospitals in Atlanta and Nebraska. Also, a U.S. doctor exposed to the virus in Sierra Leone is under observation in a similar facility at the National Institutes of Health. The U.S. has only four such isolation units. But asked whether the patient would be moved to one of those specialty facilities, Frieden said there was no need and virtually any hospital can provide the proper care and infection control. Dr. Edward Goodman, epidemiologist for Texas Health Presbyterian, said the hospital had a plan for handling Ebola should a suspected case emerge and was well prepared to provide care. After arriving in the U.S. on Sept. 20, the patient began to develop symptoms on Sept. 24 and initially sought care two days later, Frieden said. The patient was admitted to the hospital on Sept. 28, when Texas Health Presbyterian put him under strict isolation. Blood tests by Texas health ofcials and the CDC separately conrmed an Ebola diagnosis on Tuesday. Frieden would not reveal the patients nationality. Asked how many people the patient may have had close contact with in that time period, Frieden said, I think a handful is the right characterization. Since the summer months, U.S. health of cials have been preparing for the possibility that an individual traveler could unknowingly arrive with the infection. Health authorities have advised hospitals on how to prevent the virus from spreading within their facilities. People boarding planes in the outbreak zone are checked for fever, but that does not guarantee that an infected person wont get through. Liberia is one of the three hardest-hit countries in the epidemic, along with Sierra Leone and Guinea. The epidemic has killed more than 3,000 people in West Africa.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 KISO, Japan (AP) Increased seismic activity raised concern Tuesday about the possibility of another eruption at a Japanese volcano where 36 people were killed, forcing rescuers to suspend plans to try to recover at least two dozen bodies still near the summit. Volcanic tremors rose to a level not seen since Saturday evening, hours after Mount Ontakes initial large eruption, said Shoji Saito of the Japan Meteorological Agency. The tremor levels were oscillating up and down. At this point, anything can happen, Saito said, though he stopped short of predicting another large eruption. About 80 to 100 relatives and friends of those who never returned from the summit were waiting for news in a municipal hall in the nearby central Japanese town of Kiso. Rescuers found ve more bodies on Monday, bringing the death toll to 36. They have managed to airlift only 12 bodies off the mountain since the start of the eruption on Saturday because of dangerous conditions. There were believed to be at least 250 people on the mountain, a popular hiking destination, when it erupted. How the victims died remains unclear, though experts say it was probably from suffocating ash, falling rocks, toxic gases or some combination of them. Some of the bodies had severe contusions. Survivors told Japanese media that they were pelted by rocks from the eruption. Yuji Tsuno, a veteran mountain photographer, was near the summit. After taking pictures of the initial explosion as ash and debris rained down, he quickly took refuge in a nearby hut, he told the TBS TV network. About 20 minutes later, when the smoke partially subsided, Tsuno rushed out and began his descent. It was a gamble, but he believed it was his only chance, he said. I almost thought it was the end of my life, he said in the interview. On his way down, he spotted a man heading up. I told him to go down with me, but he said he had to check on his child up there. I couldnt stop him, Tsuno said. The eruption caught seismologists by surprise. Although somewhat increased seismic activity had been recorded for about two weeks, there were no indications of a major eruption, said Satoshi Deguchi, a Japan Meteorological Agency ofcial in Nagano prefecture. Typical signs, such as increased seismic rattling or underground structural movement, were not detected. The eruption was the rst fatal one in modern times at the 3,067-meter (10,062-foot) mountain, located about 130 miles west of Tokyo. An eruption occurred in 1979, but no one died.Tremors raise concern at Japan volcano AP PHOTOAn aerial view shows volcanic smoke and fumes rising from craters of Mount Ontake, central Japan, Tuesday.

The Sun /Wednesday, October 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 5 STATE NEWS MIAMI (AP) Republican-turnedDemocrat former Gov. Charlie Crist said Tuesday that current Republican Gov. Rick Scott has no integrity and his policies are driven by the almighty dollar. Crist made the remarks while discussing his campaign to seek his old job with his new party during an hourlong interview with Associated Press reporters that covered education, the environment and claims by Scott. The gubernatorial campaign has been one of the most negative in Florida history. Crist accused Scott of running a dishonest ad in which a man says he was swindled by Crist and Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein. Crist said Rothstein was a political donor who also gave money to the Republican Party of Florida and President George W. Bush, among others. Once we knew what he had done, we returned it all and my opponent in this race knows that. My opponent has not returned anything he took from you and they should, Crist said. Scott was CEO of the Columbia/HCA hospital chain during a federal investigation into Medicaid fraud. After Scott stepped down, the company agreed to pay $1.7 billion in nes to settle the case. Scott spent millions of his own money to win ofce four years ago when he received less than half the votes cast. He won by like 1 percent after spending $75 million his company stole from all of us, Crist said. I have integrity, he does not, Crist said. Lets talk about education, lets talk about the environment, lets talk about the Everglades, lets talk about the middle class that suffers. The Associated Press also invited Scott for an interview, but he declined. When told of Crists remarks, Scott campaign spokesman Greg Blair said, As Charlie realizes that no one is buying what he is selling, he is becoming increasingly angry and nasty in his personal attacks on the governor. From comparing Rick Scott to Al Capone, to calling him evil, to accusing the governor of killing Floridians, these are desperate statements from a desperate man. On education, Crist said he wants to reduce the number of standardized tests in public schools and that he supports a merit pay system for teachers that involves principals and parents and not just test scores. And while he previously supported the idea of charter schools, he said they now concern him. They have essentially become prot centers rather than learning centers. Theyre helping my opponent raise a lot of money and I think Ive gured out why. They like making the money that theyre making, Crist said. A lot of what I see out of this administration is driven by the almighty dollar and it concerns me and it bothers me and we need to have schools become learning centers again. Crist accused Scott of also doing nothing to help stop rising utility rates. Crist called for a greater emphasis on alternative energy sources. We ought to have more solar energy development in Florida and wind and theyre standing in the face of it. Theyre trying to hold back the future. Were the Sunshine State. It makes no sense until you look at the fact that (power companies) have given him millions of dollars, Crist said. Crist chose to run for Senate in 2010 instead of seeking a second term as governor. He entered the race as a Republican, but ended up running as an independent after falling behind in the GOP primary. He registered as a Democrat in 2012 and entered the governors race nearly a year later. Scott and Republicans have used the party switch against him, saying he is a political opportunist who cant be trusted. I havent changed that much at all. What has changed politically over the last four or ve years is my former party and its been a titanic shift, Crist said. Jeb Bush has said it better than I can ever say it, that todays Republican Party appears to be, if not actually is, anti-women, anti-minority, anti-gay, anti-immigrant, anti-education, anti-environment.Crist says Gov. Scott has no integrity AP PHOTODemocratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist responds to a question as he sits for an interview with the Florida Associated Press sta, Tuesday in Miami. Crist, a former Republican governor of Florida, is challenging incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott in the November election. SCOTT | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATEFAMU president to be installed Friday(News Service of Florida) lmira Mangum, who earlier this year was named the 11th president of Florida A&M University, will be formally installed as the schools leader during a ceremony Friday. Mangum, a former vice president for planning and budget at Cornell University, began work on the Tallahassee campus in April. The ceremony is scheduled to start at 10:10 a.m. Friday at the Alfred L. Lawson Jr. Multipurpose Center and Teaching Gymnasium and is part of a series of events throughout the week that include an inauguration scholarship gala and a football game.Fort Myers ticket wins $64,106.14 in Fantasy 5 TALLAHASSEE (AP) Three Fantasy 5 game players have selected all ve winning numbers to win a jackpot worth $64,106.14 each. The Florida Lottery said Tuesday the winning tickets were purchased in Clearwater, Fort Myers and Miami. The 285 tickets matching four numbers won $108.50 each. Another 8,971 tickets matching three numbers won $9.50 each and 87,784 tickets won a Quick Pick ticket for picking two numbers. The numbers drawn Monday night were 06-07-13-24-27.Cops: Miami restaurant wasnt licensed as clubMIAMI (AP) A Miami restaurant where 15 people were shot during a teen party over the weekend was not authorized to host nightclub events. Miami police said in a new release Tuesday that The Spot was functioning as a club early Sunday morning when a shooting sent terried patrons running from the club and wounded many youngsters, including an 11-year-old girl. Neighbors said the adult club had recently started hosting a teen night that was drawing large crowds. A police inspection Monday revealed the venue was licensed as a restaurant, not a club. Its unclear what, if any, type of sanctions The Spot may face. Authorities also said they found numer ous other violations, but declined to elaborate. Most of the wounded have been released from the hospital. Four people are still there.Naked woman riding in truck that struck school busSTARKE (AP) Authorities say a naked woman was riding in the semi-truck that struck a school bus in north Florida, injuring 10 people. Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Dylan Bryan says it is unclear why the woman was unclothed when the truck hit the bus Monday carrying elementary students on their way home. Authorities say none of the students received life-threatening injuries in the crash, but that the driver of the truck and the woman were in critical condition.Court gives Scott October deadline in mayor caseMIAMI (AP) The Florida Supreme Court has given Gov. Rick Scott a mid-October deadline to explain why he wont lift the suspension of a South Florida mayor acquitted of federal cor ruption charges. Miami Lakes Mayor Michael Pizzi is insisting he should get his job back after he was found not guilty. Scott has refused, pointing out that Miami Lakes voters elected a replacement mayor after Pizzi was indicted. The Supreme Court issued a brief order Monday setting an Oct. 14 date for Scott to explain why Pizzis petition seeking the mayors post should not be granted. The court was careful to add that the Republican governor isnt required to reinstate Pizzi. A jury in August cleared Pizzi of seven corruptionrelated charges brought after an undercover FBI investigation into questionable city grant applications.Student banned from wearing condom costumeORLANDO (Orlando Sentinel) Jack Englund wanted to bring a safe-sex message to his classmates at Dr. Phillips High School on Tuesday. So he dressed up as Trojan Man for a school spirit char acter day, wearing a red cape and a blue poster board decorated to look like a condom wrapper. School ofcials were not amused. His rstperiod teacher sent him to the ofce, where a dean made him remove the costume. But Jack, a 17-yearold tuba player in the schools performing arts magnet, said he didnt consider the costume inappropriate. I dont see how my piece of cardboard and cape are any more distracting than costumes such as Mario, Luigi and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles worn by other students, he said. Opposing groups push message out to voters about medical marijuanaMIAMI (Miami Herald) The supporters and opponents of medical marijuana both posted their rst TV ads Monday, just in time for Floridians to receive the rst wave of absentee ballots in the mail. The clash is one that has played out in 23 other states plus Washington, D.C., with medical-marijuana supporters playing up the benets of cannabis in treating cancer or MS while opponents target older, more conservative voters with a message about crime. They dont call it the Drug-Dealer Protection Act. But they should, says the opposition ad from Drug Free Florida Committee, which focuses on a provision in the proposed constitutional amendment that allows caregivers to handle marijuana. The supporters, People United for Medical Marijuana, concentrate on the broad outlines and promise of the amendment: Getting people the care they need without the intrusion of government. Twenty-three states now keep government and politicians out of the doctor-patient relationship. And its worked, says the ad. Drug Free appears to be spending the most early: $1.6 million, with the likelihood of millions more to come especially from Las Vegas gambling magnate and Republican donor Sheldon Adelson. People United for Medical Marijuana hasnt disclosed how much its spending. Its chairman, Democratic donor and Orlando trial lawyer John Morgan, have promised to do what it takes to get their message out. 877-641-2852.GEA.Call For A Property Brochure Balsam mountain preserve rfnntbnf5AUCTIONSb Broker: Scott Kirk NC 237621 Auctioneer: Stacy Kirk NC 9299 2Luxur y HomesToBeSoldAbsolute WithN y oMinimumOrReserveBid!3MountainTopLots,1ToBeSoldAbsolute!Outdoor living rooms with Trex TM decking, large expansive mountain views, spacious master suites, and private guest accommodations Luxury nishes of slate, stacked stone, granite, branch balusters, and heavy timber trusses Lots from 1.83 acres to 1.948 acres 50471024 rfntbrfrnttrffrfnrfrrt fbffbtftrfttfbfrb rffffbrrfffff b 941-206-2505 ALWAYS IN YOUR BEST INTEREST 5.25 $20,000 minimum deposit.

In short, the asset allocation theory means that you invest aggressively while youre young. Then as you get older, you move toward less aggressive funds. If you follow this theory to the letter, youre left pretty much with money markets and bonds by the time youre 65. The reason I dont believe in this theory is simple. It doesnt work. If you live to age 65 and are in good health, theres a high statistical likelihood that youll make it to 95. The average age of death for males in this country is now 76, but that includes infant mor tality and teenage deaths. If you move your money to bonds and money markets at age 65, ination is going to kick your tail. Your money will grow slower than it will devalue, and youll have little purchasing power. Thats the problem with the asset allocation methodology. I advise investing in good, growth stock mutual funds that have strong track records of at least ve to 10 years. Spread your money across four types of funds: growth, growth and income, aggressive growth and international. These groups provide diversication across risk, as well as a little splash overseas. DaveYou cant afford masters degreeDear Dave: My husband makes about $35,000 a year before taxes, and we have one child. We also have a mortgage and $60,000 in student loan debt. About a year ago, my husband started work on a masters degree, because he thinks he wants to teach when he retires. He quit school after the baby was born, because he didnt think we could afford it any longer. I think he should nish the degree. Otherwise, hes just throwing away the $10,000 weve already got invested in the program. What do you think? Amanda Dear Amanda: You guys need to clean up the mess youve made before he goes after his masters degree. You might be able to justify it if the degree immediately raised his income, but you two cant afford to make investments in vague educational goals right now. The classes he has already taken are complete and on record, so why cant he nish the degree somewhere down the road? The point is not the $10,000, Amanda. The point is that youre barely making ends meet. The last thing you need is to go even deeper into debt for something he wont even use until retirement. Thats just silly. Im all for education, but youve got to plan things and get a better payback on your educational spending. Dave Follow Dave on Twitter at @DaveRamsey and on the Web at www.daveramsey. com.Asset allocationDave Ramsey It is not necessary to accept the email address offered by our Internet provider. Many folks believe that if they sign up with a specic Internet provider such as Comcast, Verizon or CenturyLink, they are obligated to use their providers email service. In these examples the provider will offer an email address ending in @comcast.net, @verizon. net or @centurylink.net. Every Internet Service Provider offers one or more email accounts with a subscription to their service as a means to prevent users from leaving their service. Remember when we moved from one house to another? Change of address forms, notifying all our banks, utilities, etc., of our new address. It was a real pain to work through. Recently many folks have contacted me complaining that their Internet providers have jacked up their monthly rates painfully but if they leave to another provider with a better rate, they cannot keep their email address from the old provider. My advice is to switch now, while they still have control over their old email account to one of the myriad free email accounts such as Hotmail, Live, Yahoo, Gmail, MSN and many more. They offer free email accounts but no access to the Internet. To use their email, we must have a connection to the Internet. It can be a service like Comcast or CenturyLink, our cellphone provider or even an Internet connection available from many restaurants, our neighbors wireless router or the public library. When our current Internet provider tries to bump up our monthly rate, we can shop for a new provider and nothing changes regarding our email. If we use the library or other free hotspot to connect to the Internet and use a free email service, does that mean we save twice as much? Another advantage to free email not tied to an Internet Service Provider is if we decide to change our provider because of cost, location or service, we dont have to notify anyone of our change of address. For example, I have had about five different Internet providers over the last 15 years but my email address is still the same hotmail.com address it has always been. How difficult is it to change email addresses? What steps should we take before taking the plunge? Here are some suggestions. Before canceling our old email provider, export our email address book to a CSV le (comma separated values.) Almost all email providers make this feature available and it makes it very easy to make a copy of our address book for import to any new email provider we decide on. Additionally many free email providers offer a set-up that will automat ically import our address book and emails from an old account provided the old account hasnt been terminated. Next, from our old email provider, send an email to everyone in our address book. Something along the lines of Hi, I am switching my email provider to XYZ and my new email address is abc@def.com. Please make the change to your address book. If youre not willing to make this change then it has been nice emailing with you. Changing email providers is easy, fun and if we go with FREE, can provide some FREEdom to change Internet providers as the opportunities arise. Now dare the Internet to raise our rates.

Major indexes drifted to a slight loss, leaving the Standard & Poors 500 down 1.6 percent for September, its third monthly drop this year. The market spent Tuesday wavering between minor gains and losses, but there were big moves beneath the surface. Crude oil prices plunged, dragging down Chevron and other oil and gas companies. Ford Motor fell after cutting its prot forecast, while eBay jumped after announcing plans to spin off PayPal. Trading has turned choppy over recent weeks. Lingering concerns over conicts around the world, corporate prots and the strength of the global economy have all played a role, said Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at Banyan Partners. Investors are also wary of the fact that some of the markets worst swoons have happened in the months of September and October. People are unsure at this time of the year, Pavlik said. Were heading into October. Like September, its another typically bad month for the market. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 28.32 points, or 0.2 percent, to 17,042.90. The S&P 500 slipped 5.51 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,972.29. The Nasdaq composite lost 12.46 points, also 0.3 percent, to 4,493.39. Despite its bad reputation, September has actually been mostly good to investors. Before this year, the S&P 500 turned in a September loss just twice over the past decade: during the financial crisis in 2008 and again following a fight over raising the governments borrowing limit in 2011.S&P loses ground in September 'Alin0 0

The value of industry payments and other nancial benets totaled nearly $3.5 billion in the ve-month period from August through December 2013, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which released the data. The massive trove of information named companies and many of the recipients. Also listed were types of payments, with details down to travel destinations. Some 546,000 clinicians and 1,360 teaching hospitals received benets. Its part of a new initiative called Open Payments, required by President Barack Obamas health care law. It was intended to allow patients to easily look up their own doctors online, but that functionality isnt fully developed. In future years, the information will cover a full 12 months and will be easier to search, ofcials said. Consumer groups said its a step toward much-needed transpar ency. They see a built-in conict of interest that can inuence prescribing decisions, the use of hightech tests and even types of surgeries performed. But doctors and industry said the government rushed to release the data, and they raised questions about accuracy and lack of context. The administration said its not pointing a nger at the medical profession or the pharmaceutical industry. Open Payments does not identify which nancial relationships could cause conicts of interest, said Shantanu Agrawal, the agency ofcial overseeing the project. It simply makes the data available to the public. An initial Associated Press analysis found that orthopedists, cardiologists and adult medicine specialists were among the likeliest to receive payments from drug and device companies. Most of the contributions came in the form of cash payments, followed by in-kind gifts and services, and stock options. Genentech Inc., Pzer Inc. and DePuy Synthes topped the list of companies. APs analysis excluded research grants. Some doctors also had ownership stakes in companies, and the government counted the value of those stakes as part of the overall $3.5 billion it termed as payments. Under Obama, government policy has shifted toward opening the books of the medical profession. A few months ago Medicare released its huge claims database, showing program payments to more than 825,000 providers for 2012. Unlike other provisions of his health care law, Open Payments is supported by lawmakers of both political parties. Drug companies traditionally have prized their relationships with doctors, the gatekeepers between patients and prescription medications. Some doctors ofces have started curbing pharmaceutical marketing, which can include anything from free pens and pizzas to paid speaking engagements and golf outings at fancy resorts. Clinical research is another area of nancial relationships, and harder to assess. Many doctors receive signicant payments to help drug companies conduct research that can benet society.Drug and device firms paid $3.5B to care providers ATTENTIONTD BANK CUSTOMERS Were you charged bank overdraft or NSF fees on Multiple debit account transactions?

PETERSBURG Andrew Friedman and Joe Maddon never expected they would be where they were Tuesday morning. Two-hundred and twenty-nine days earlier, the Tampa Bay Rays executive vice president and manager sat beneath the warm winter sun at Charlotte Sports Complex and expressed their optimism for the upcoming season. Friedman thought this Rays team had a chance to do something special. Maddon thought it had a chance to win the last game of the postseason, to eat last. On Tuesday, the two sat side by side again, only this time it was in the dimly lit Hancock Bank Club inside a mostly empty Tropicana Field. And instead of discussing the playoff game they expected to be preparing for, they were reecting on the end of a disappointing 77-85 season. I think there was some sense of, Things are going to work out. Were going to win more games just by the virtue of the talent that we have, Friedman said. We all just expected that we were going to start winning games. We were too talented not to.

RAYS | 2 PREP VOLLEYBALL: Lemon Bay 3, DeSoto County 0Mantas return the favorENGLEWOOD Lemon Bay High School took the court Tuesday night like a team that had something to prove. The Manta Rays got their point across by way of a sweep of visiting DeSoto County (25-10, 25, 25-17) in a contest that has emerged as District 5A-11s top rivalry over the past two seasons. There was plenty to prove for the Manta Rays, who suffered a sweep to the Bulldogs earlier this season after committing 34 errors. Lemon Bay has also lost to Sebring, a team DeSoto County split with, to leave the district crown anyones to claim as the regular season winds down. So Caitlin Montgomery and Maureen Ryan came out with a little chip on their shoulders early on. Because of it, the duo combined for nine kills in a Game 1 win that the Bulldogs never contested. I told them, This is how you play without errors. Nobody can beat you when you play like this but your errors, Lemon Bay coach Stacy DeWolfe said. We only had 17 errors tonight, and our serving was great. It was good to watch. Montgomery, who nished with a match-best 11 kills, was happy to share swings with teammate Ocie Flowers during the second and third games, and the latter had seven kills because of it.

The 18-time Olympic gold medalist later apologized for the incident, saying he was deeply sorry to everyone I have let down. Police said Phelps, 29, was clocked by radar around 1:40 a.m. traveling 84 miles per hour (135 kph) in a 45-mph (72-kph) zone. He was booked and released.

PREP SWIMMING: Port CharlottePirates Miller displays superstitious sportsmanshipPORT CHARLOTTE Makenzie Miller starts and ends every race the same way. The Port Charlotte High School freshman turns to one side and wishes her nearest competitor good luck, then turns to the other side and does the same. Once the race is over, she shakes hands with the swimmer in each adjacent lane, congratulating them on a good race. Its such a superstition and its so weird because I feel like if I dont wish them good luck, Im gonna do terrible, she said. I feel like everyone has that equal chance, so I need to say good luck and you can always do better than what you think you can. The superstition seems to be working this season, as what happens in between good luck and good race is often Miller winning.

The homer eclipsed Babe Ruths 34-year-old single-season home run record. The Yankees won 1-0. 1967 The Boston Red Sox won the Amer ican League pennant with a 5-3 win over the Twins on the nal day of the season. Bostons Carl Yastrzemski went 4-for-4 and nished with 44 home runs, 121 RBIs and a .326 aver age to win the batting Triple Crown. 1978 The Cleveland Indians beat the New York Yankees 9-2 on the last day of the season to force a one-game playo be tween the Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox won their eighth straight game with a 5-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. 1988 Tony Gwynn went 2-for-3 to raise his league-leading batting average to .313 but hurt his hand in a 6-3 victory over the Houston Astros. Gwynn is the rst NL bat ting champion to win the title with an av erage below .320. The previous lowest was Larry Doyles .320 in 1915. MLB NOTEBOOKScherzer to start opener for TigersRight-hander Max Scherzer will be the Game 1 starter for the Detroit Tigers in their American League Division Series against the Baltimore Orioles, the team announced Tuesday. Right-hander Justin Verlander will follow Scherzer in Game 2, left-hander David Price will get the ball for Game 3 and right-hander Rick Porcello will pitch Game 4 for the Tigers. The Tigers could be without outelder Rajai Davis for the series. He sustained a groin injury Saturday that could keep him off the ALDS roster. Davis batted .282 this season in 134 games. Scherzer nished the regular season with an 18-5 record and a 3.15 ERA. He will face Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman (13-6, 3.34 ERA) in the opener Thursday in Baltimore. Hamilton says hell play: Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton declared himself ready to go for the American League Division Series despite playing one regular-season game in September. The 33-year-old has been out with a myriad of injuries to his shoulder and ribs, but participated in baseball activities for the second day in a row in preparation of Thursdays ALDS game against tje Oakland Athletics. Hamilton hit .263 with 10 home runs and 44 RBIs in an injury-shortened 89 games this season. Meanwhile, right-hander Matt Shoemaker said after his second bullpenb session in three days that he will be available to start in the ALDS. He has been dealing with a mild left oblique strain, but if healthy, would likely start Game 2. Shoemaker went 16-4 with a .304 ERA this season. Gordon cleared for Dodgers: Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon is a go for Game 1 of the National League Division Series on Friday against the St. Louis Cardinals after sitting out the final game of the regular season with a hip injury. In 148 regular-season games, Gordon batted .289 and had 64 stolen bases, a NL-best 12 triples and 92 runs. He was named to his first NL All-Star team in July. Elbow surgery for Beltran: New York Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran had surgery on his right elbow to remove a bone spur and loose pieces, the team announced. He is expected to be ready for spring training in February. The 37-year-old had a disappointing first season with the Yankees after signing a three-year, $45 million contract in the offseason. He batted a career-low .233 with 15 home runs and 49 RBIs in 449 plate appearances. Buchholz undergoes knee surgery: Two days after starting the Boston Red Soxs regular-season finale, right-hander Clay Buchholz underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. General manager Ben Cherrington said Buchholz dealt with the knee problem the entire season but finished with an 8-11 record and a 5.34 ERA with two complete-game shutouts. Braves hitting coach quits: Greg Walker quit as hitting coach of the Atlanta Braves after the team struggled all season offensively, especially in the final month of the season while losing 18 of 25 games to fall out of playoff contention. Walker had been the hitting coach for three years, coming to Atlanta after serving in the same position with the Chicago White Sox from 2003-11. Manager Fredi Gonzalez is scheduled to meet Wednesday with interim general manager John Hart, a session that could lead to more changes on the coaching staff. The Braves still must hire a permanent GM.FROM WIRE REPORTSHamilton says hes good to go for Angels MLB: NL wild cardHigh hopes for VolquezPITTSBURGH Edinson Volquezs renaissance began with a simple game of catch. During his brief session with Pittsburgh Pirates pitching coach Ray Searage on that January day at the teams training facility in Florida, the talented but erratic right-hander listened as Searage outlined a plan to help the 31-year-old regain the form that once made him an All-Star. He felt wanted, Searage said. That builds trust. Ten months later, Volquez will try to repay that trust by sending the Pirates into the NL Division Series for the second sconsecutive year when he starts tonights wild-card game against San Francisco. The raucous scene that awaits Volquez at PNC Park is in stark contrast to his ignominious exit from San Diego last summer, when the oundering Padres released him after a miserable stretch in which his ERA ballooned to 6.01. Its kind of sad a little bit, Volquez said. You feel like your career is over. He ended 2013 with the Los Angeles Dodgers, where he showed minor improvement before hitting the free-agent market. But most teams hardly seemed interested in signing a pitcher who spent a half-decade struggling with his command and composure. Yet he found a home in Pittsburgh, where the clubhouse has become an Ellis Island of sorts for players looking to regain something theyve lost. A year ago it was lefthander Francisco Liriano, who signed with the Pirates and put together a 16-8 season that included a victory over Cincinnati in the wild-card game. Liriano and Volquez are good friends, and while the $5 million ier Pittsburgh took on Volquez to be a back-ofthe-rotation guy raised eyebrows, he remained condent he could make the changes necessary to become competitive. Searage tweaked Volquezs delivery. Pirates catcher Russell Martin worked with him to set a steady pace during games, often hustling to the mound when Volquez starts working too quickly. When Volquez gets out of rhythm, his mechanics run amok. Volquez responded by going 13-7 with a 3.04 ERA in a team-high 32 starts, the lone constant in a rotation that saw Liriano, Gerrit Cole and Charlie Morton spend a signicant amount of time on the disabled list. Volquez went 5-0 with a 1.64 ERA in his last 11 starts, his consistency one of the main reasons the Pirates sent Cole to the mound in the regular-season nale against Cincinnati in a last-ditch bid to win the NL Central. Cole was brilliant but Pittsburgh lost 4-1, putting its hopes of an extended playoff stay in Volquezs maturing hands. Its the biggest start of his career, but Volquez isnt exactly sweating it. He spent Monday laying around his house napping. On Tuesday he traded jokes with other Latin players before playing long toss and shagging ies during batting practice. Ive got to pitch my game and be myself, he said.By WILL GRAVESASSOCIATED PRESSPitcher looks to continue revival vs. Giants AP PHOTOEdinson Volquez throws long toss in the outeld during a team workout on Tuesday at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. He will start for the Pirates today against the San Francisco Giants. TO OUR READERSTuesday nights American League wild-card game between the Oakland Athletics and Kansas City Royals was not complete in time for this edition. increasingly difcult to dig out of. The Rays dug that hole with a 1-14 midsummer swoon that pushed them to 18 games under .500 on June 10. But even then, there was optimism. And when Tampa Bay got to 61-61 two months later becoming the fourth team in major league history to reach .500 after being at least 18 games below Maddon thought his team had a legitimate chance in the race for a Wild Card spot. But, just like the college basketball team that goes on a furious run to tie the game before eventually losing in the nal seconds, the Rays ran out of steam. After going 3719 from June 11 to Aug. 15, Tampa Bay closed the season 16-24. I remember the night we (got back to .500), and it was pretty festive. I really felt good about the whole thing, and I thought, There is a shot to do this. But, while youre doing that, youre laying out a lot of energy, Maddon said. Emotionally, it takes a lot to do those types of things. So I think, retrospectively, I thought we could do it. But realistically, its hard to maintain that kind of emotion. Thats the type of season it was for the Rays. To describe it, Maddon used the words weird, awkward, crazy, and strange all in the span of two sentences on Tuesday. The Rays were the only team in baseball to nish with a winning record on the road and a losing record at home. Their pitching staffs 22 shutouts were the second most in the majors, as were their offenses 18. Their starting rotation was among the best in the league while their offense was among the worst. While their starters nished the season with the sixth-best ERA (3.48) of any American League team in the past 25 years, their offense nished dead last in the AL in runs scored (612) and slugging percentage (.367). We feel like we have the core talent in place to be really good next year, Friedman said. Now we just need to spend time tweaking the roster and focusing on differ ent aspects of it to put ourselves in a position to break camp next year with a realistic chance to be playing games in October. And as I sit here right now, I feel really condent in out ability to do that. If Friedman is correct in his condence, next seasons year-end press conference might not have to take place before October begins. This press conference next year is going to be about a playoff game, Maddon said. Not about the conclusion of a disappointing season.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com.RAYSFROM PAGE 1 ................................................................................................................................................................ :-

The Sun /Wednesday, October 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 FOOTBALL APOLOGIES, APOLOGIESANN ARBOR, Mich. Michigan announced changes to its injury protocol Tuesday, admitting it made a mistake in handling quarterback Shane Morris following a suspected concussion because of a serious lack of communication and confusion among the coaching staff. Athletic director Dave Brandon said Michigan plans to have a medical professional at games after what happened over the weekend and apologized for the mistakes. Coach Brady Hoke has been criticized for not immediately sitting Morris for the rest of the game after the sophomore took a hard hit in the fourth quarter against Minnesota on Saturday. Hoke said Monday he didnt see the hit on Morris, and that all he knew at the time was that his quarterback was dealing with an ankle issue. About 12 hours later, Brandon released a statement saying Morris had eventually been diagnosed with a probable concussion. University President Mark S. Schlissel apologized to Morris, his family and teammates. We did not get this right, he said. In addition to having an athletic medicine professional in the press box or video booth to ensure someone will have a birds eye view of the action, Brandon said Michigan will examine its sideline communications. Asked Monday if Morris had been diagnosed with a concussion, Hoke said: Everything that I know of, no. Hoke said Morris would have practiced Sunday night if not for a high ankle sprain.Michigan admits mistakes with injuryBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSKANSAS CITY, Mo. The NFL said Tuesday that Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah should not have been penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct when he dropped to his knees in prayer after an interception. The leagues rule book prohibits players from celebrating while on the ground, but spokesman Michael Signora wrote in an email that the ofciating mechanic in this situation is not to ag a player who goes to the ground as part of religious expression, and as a result, there should have been no penalty on the play. The ag thrown in the fourth quarter of Kansas Citys 41-14 victory over the New England Patriots on Monday night led to criticism on social media, with many wondering how it was different from players such as former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow dropping to one knee in Christian prayer. Abdullah is a devout Muslim who took a year off from football to make a pilgrimage to Mecca. He said after Mondays game that he knew before he reached the end zone he would drop to his knees in thankful prayer after intercepting Tom Brady. After he slid to the grass in Arrowhead Stadium, yellow ags came ying from the ofcials. I dont think it was because of the actual prostration that I got the penalty, Abdullah said. I think it was because of the slide. And thats precisely the explanation that Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he received from the game ofcials. They had no issue with the prayer, Reid said, only the celebratory slide.NFL regrets penalty on praying playerBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSAP PHOTOMichigan quarterback Shane Morris lays on the eld after taking a hit in the fourth quarter of Saturdays game.

North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren said Tuesday he has apologized to Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher for his comments accusing the top-ranked Seminoles of faking injuries to slow down the Wolfpacks offense. Doeren released a statement Tuesday morning on the programs Twitter account and extended his apology to FSUs staff, players and fans. I have the utmost respect for Jimbo, his staff and his players, Doeren said. FSU played a great game and earned the win. Doeren said he left an emotional locker room after Saturdays 56-41 loss and took those emotions with me to the press conference, where he rst raised the issue. He did it again Monday when asked at his weekly news conference and had made similar comments earlier this season after a win against Georgia Southern. Fisher denied that his defensive players faked injuries and accused Doeren of not knowing what hes talking about. N.C. State led 24-7 and 38-28 in the game before Jameis Winston and the Seminoles rallied for a program-record 20th consecutive win. It was a great college football game with tremendous plays made by both teams, Doeren said. That is where the focus deserves to be. Gators back Driskel percent: Florida offensive coordi nator Kurt Roper backed quarterback Jeff Driskel percent, insisted he and coach Will Muschamp are on the same page and questioned some of his own play-calling in a 42-21 loss to Alabama on Sept. 20. Roper said many of the problems for Driskel and the offense stemmed from unmanageable situations on third down. Former assistant sues UCF: A former Central Florida assistant coach is suing the university and the athletic department for breach of contract, alleging that coach George OLeary engaged in continuous criticism of his work and created a work environment that included bullying, threatening behavior and repeated discriminatory epithets. Former defensive coordinator Paul Ferraro filed the suit in Florida last week. The suit alleges OLeary made derogatory remarks about Ferraros Italian heritage, African-Americans and persons of Jewish descent.Coach sorry for saying FSU faked injuriesFROM WIRE REPORTS FCC sacks blackout ruleBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON The Federal Communications Commission voted Tuesday to end the 1975 rule with a push from its chairman. We at the FCC shouldnt be complicit in preventing sports fans from watching their favorite teams on TV, said Chairman Tom Wheeler. Its time to sack the sports blackout rule. The vote will not actually end blackouts, which are written into the NFLs private contracts with broadcast and cable companies. But it means responsibility for blackouts now lies entirely with the NFL and its television partners, not the government. Last year, only two NFL games were blacked out in local markets: The Cincinnati Bengals against the Chargers in San Diego on Dec. 1 and the Miami Dolphins vs. the Bills in Buffalo on Dec. 22. Even so, the NFL launched a lobbying campaign against the blackout repeal. Around the league: The Oakland Raiders promoted offensive line coach Tony Sparano to interim coach a day after firing head coach Dennis Allen. Sparano had a 29-32 record as head coach in Miami from 2008-11. Allens 8-28 record is the worst for the franchise since before Al Davis arrived in 1963. The Atlanta Falcons are facing an overhaul on their offensive line after announcing injuries ended the seasons for center Joe Hawley and right tackle Lamar Holmes. Also, safety William Moore will miss at least eight weeks with a shoulder injury. No. 1 draft pick Jadeveon Clowneys rehabilitation from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee is going well and he said he hopes to return for the Houston Texans in a few weeks.

TV: Golf Channel, 11 p.m.-4 a.m., each day Defending champion: Shanshan Feng At a glance: Feng thrilled Chinese fans by getting a great break on the bounce of her approach shot on the final hole and sinking a 3-foot eagle putt to claim a one-stroke victory over Stacy Lewis last year. Feng, who claimed her second LPGA Tour title after winning the 2012 Wegmans LPGA Championship, closed with a 5-under-par 68. Later in the year, she captured the CME Group Titleholders, but she returns home winless this season. Lewis, who now is No. 1 in the Rolex Womens World Golf Rankings, also finished with a 68, but she missed an 18-foot birdie putt on the final hole that would have forced a playoff.PGA TOURNext up: Frys.com Open at Silverado Resort and Spa, Napa, Calif., Oct. 9-12 (Golf Channel, 5-8 p.m. each day) Jimmy Walker At a glance: Walker claimed his first victory on the PGA Tour in his 188th attempt, playing the weekend in 62-66 to win by two strokes over Vijay Singh at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, Calif. The 35-year-old Walker went on to a breakout season in his eighth year on the PGA Tour, also winning the Sony Open in Hawaii and the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He led the FedEx Cup standings for most of the season, played in all four majors for the first time and made the U.S. team for the Ryder Cup. Brooks Koepka held a four-stroke lead with 11 holes remaining, but he carded three bogeys on the back nine en route to a 72 and tied for third. Walker made four birdies on the last 11 holes and took the lead for good with a 6-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole. Singh closed with a 68 for the 27th second-place career finish.CHAMPIONS TOURNext up: SAS Championship at Prestonwood Country Club, Cary, N.C., Oct. 10-12 (Golf Channel, 2:30-5 p.m. each day) Defending champion: Russ Cochran At a glance: The left-handed Cochran birdied the last four holes, sinking an 8-foot putt on No. 18 to claim a one-stroke victory over David Frost of South Africa to win the tournament for the second time in four years.

Frost finished with a 66, missing a 4-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole to tie for the lead.WEB.COM TOURNext up: Q-School, PGA National, Palm Beach Gardens, Dec. 11-16 The Sports Xchange HARTFORD, Conn. A school principal said Tuesday that members of his high schools football team were subjected to racist taunts from among a group of adults in an eastern Connecticut town where his team had just played an away game and lost. New London High School principal William Tommy Thompson III said a ght broke out after fans in Plaineld used the N-word in taunts against the players, called them monkeys and told them to get back in their cages when the players were heading to their buses Friday. He said he did not hear the taunts directly but several players told him about them afterward. Quarterback Danny Maranda told The Day of New London that he was repeatedly called an N-word lover. Two former Plaineld high school students were charged with breach of peace in connection with the ght. Plaineld Police Chief Michael Surprenant said no one interviewed by police Friday mentioned the slurs, but he said the investigation is continuing and more arrests are possible. Minorities in New London, a city of about 27,000 residents, make up about 40 percent of the population; Plaineld, a town of 15,000 residents, is about 94 percent white, according to the latest census data. Plaineld principal James Worth said he has been raising the issue of fan behavior at Plaineld High School, which he said experienced similar issues years ago.Conn. principal: Players subjected to racist slursASSOCIATED PRESS PREP FOOTBALL | QUICK HITSNEW CLIPPERS OPEN TRAINING CAMP IN LAS VEGASLAS VEGAS (AP) With their offseason of controversy behind them, the Los Angeles Clippers got back to the business of basketball Tuesday, opening a four-day training camp in a city known for its temptations and distractions. But coach Doc Rivers, after conducting a fourhour workout at UNLVs Mendenhall Center, said he isnt worried about how his players will deal with the Las Vegas nightlife this week. Listen, if you want to win, youll go to sleep. If you want to lose, youll go party, he said. Its just that simple, and I told them that. I told them no curfews, youre on your own, you can do what you want. If theyre ready, Ill know. If they cant practice, it means theyre doing something they shouldnt do. The Clippers will work out in Las Vegas through Friday, then return for a preseason game Oct. 18 against the Denver Nuggets at Mandalay Bay. Rivers said he chose Las Vegas so his players could enjoy dinners together and see a few shows, a way to bond before the start of the season. No one seemed concerned about the potential for trouble in Sin City. We have a group of guys that are here for a purpose, so the distractions arent really the distractions as far as were concerned, forward Blake Grifn said. Were not here to have a good time, be out late and all that. Miami Heat center Justin Hamilton is expected to be sidelined for about a month after undergoing a procedure to repair an abnormal heart rhythm. In Istanbul, Nneka Ogwumike scored 18 points to lead the U.S. womens national team to a record 119-44 rout of Angola and close preliminary play at the womens world championship.

Bristol County Assistant District Attorney Patrick Bomberg said a warrant was issued and a lawyer for the ex-player reviewed it and arranged to turn over the phone to a Massachusetts state trooper in the lobby of the firms office building in Boston. The defense now maintains the phone was turned over under a false claim of legal authority and seeks to have evidence from it thrown out. O.J. Simpson received a fair trial after a hotel room heist and theres no need for another trial following his 2008 conviction and imprisonment on kidnapping and armed robbery charges, prosecutors told the Nevada Supreme Court. An attorney for Bryan Stow, the gravely injured Giants fan who won a multimillion-dollar damage suit against the Dodgers, sued the team again, claiming it is trying to recoup $3.4 million in insurance payments from Stow for his medical care after a beating. Anthony Wunder, 21, a student who ran onto the field during an Ohio State football game and was body-slammed by a coach pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor criminal trespassing.

The Sun /Wednesday, October 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 5 NUMBERS GAME7 One constant through the first half of the season has been Anthony Marinola finding the end zone for Lemon Bay. Marinola has scored seven rushing touchdowns and is the only area player to have scored a touchdown every week. He also has rushed for 434 yards, second in the area. 52 Spare a thought for former North Port coach Billy Huthman, whose new team, Cocoa Beach, is having a trying season. The Minutemen are 0-5 and have allowed 263 points or 52.6 points per game. Through four games, Cocoa Beach was the only team in Florida to have given up 200 points. With powerhouse Cocoa coming up this week, it doesnt get any easier.CONVENTIONAL WISDOM1. DeSoto County (4-0)Last week: Defeated North Port, 44-7. This week: At Bayshore. The buzz: The Bulldogs hope to continue their solid start with Fridays trip to Bayshore. The winless Bruins have struggled so far, but they are also a team that has given DeSoto County fits in recent years.2. Port Charlotte (4-1)Last week: Defeated Lehigh, 49-0. This week: At Fort Myers (Thurs.). The buzz: The last meeting between the Pirates and the Green Wave was a cracker, broken open by Anthony Stephens 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. This could be a nifty running battle between Fort Myers Terrance Moore and Stephens.3. Charlotte (2-1)Last week: At Lakewood Ranch, ccd., lightning. This week: Vs. Riverdale. The buzz: Riverdale has been a recent fixture on the Charlotte schedule and the Tarpons have dominated, winning the last five meetings by an average of 29. 4 points. 4. Lemon Bay (3-2)Last week: Defeated Dunbar, 19-7. This week: Bye. The buzz: Its a good week for a bye, which will allow the Mantas to heal a bit (Jeremy Snook and Brian McGill sat out last week). The next district game against Cape Coral needs a healthy squad.5. North Port (1-4)Last week: Lost to DeSoto County, 44-7. This week: Vs. Lakewood Ranch. (Thurs.) The buzz: The Bobcats havent been able to build on the win over Palmetto Ridge two weeks ago. This weeks contest against the Mustangs will show if North Port can compete in District 7A-10 this season though it would be a tough road.THE POWER OF THREETony Lee, DESOTO COUNTYThis spot could easily have been Reggie Jones (as it had the past two weeks). But instead, it goes to Lee, who answered a North Port touchdown with an 89-yard kickoff return for a score. He also caught a touchdown pass.Victor Mellor, LEMON BAYCalled upon to fill in for injured quarterback Jeremy Snook, Mellor didnt disappoint with 114 rushing yards and two touchdowns in a must-win district game against Dunbar.Brennan Norus, PORT CHARLOTTENorus is becoming a mainstay for the Pirates. He had nine carries for 120 yards and three touchdowns against Lehigh, his second straight game with three touchdowns.GAME OF THE WEEKPort Charlotte at Fort Myers: Its only the District 7A-11 opener for the Pirates and the Green Wave, but this is already a biggie. Port Charlotte (4-1) has won its last three after falling to Venice, while Fort Myers (5-0) is unblemished. The winner takes pole position for a playoff spot, while the loser will be chasing.KEEP AN EYE ONHardee at Booker: DeSoto County will be eyeing this district matchup in Sarasota, having already beaten the Tornadoes. The Wildcats are coming off a big nondistrict win at Frostproof and could make Bookers playoff hopes dim considerably. STATE RANKINGSCL ASS 8A Rec. Pts Prv 1. Dr. Phillips (12) 5-0 161 1 2.

Coelletto has taken over as starting quarterback for the Pirates.PORT CHARLOTTE When Port Charlotte coach Jordan Ingman rst approached Christian Coffelletto about being the Pirates starting quarterback, the senior had one question. He told me Id be playing quarterback and the rst thing I asked him was if I was still playing strong safety, Coffelletto said. Its a big part of my game. Once he was given assurances hed stay at strong safety, Coffelletto felt better. But it still felt a little strange. He hadnt gotten many reps at quarterback in Port Charlottes spring game and had been given limited reps there to start the season. But Ingman decided to try Coffelletto in an effort to free up Anthony Stephens, starting with a half against Mariner three weeks ago. Since then, hes been the full-time starter against Lely and Lehigh, both Port Charlotte victories. Anthony felt more comfort able in space and we wanted to get him in space more hes an extremely talented kid, Ingman said. Christian was really reading things well and making great decisions, so I think it was best for the both of them and the team. Ahead of Port Charlottes District 7A-11 opener at Fort Myers on Thursday, it gives the Pirates a different look than earlier this season. Port Charlotte still has a potent running attack with Stephens and Brennan Norus, who have combined for 877 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. But it also allows Stephens to go back to the position where he is admittedly more comfortable. It feels like Im at home, like last year, honestly, Stephens said. When Im back there, everythings second nature, because I know everything back there already. Stephens spent all of last season playing running back for the Pirates (so did Coffelletto). Even coming into the season, Coffelletto had to settle for backup reps in practice. And now, hes the starter. Its denitely weird, Coffelletto said. I would never have thought Id be in the starting quarterback position. I thought maybe running back would be the spot I could do a little more, but coach told me quarterback. Ingman likes what he has seen in Coffellettos limited time at quarterback so far this season. We knew he had it in him, Ingman said. Playing as few reps as he did, as fast as hes picked (the offense) up has been amazing. But Coffellettos toughest test at quarterback comes this week against unbeaten Fort Myers. That doesnt bother him though. Theyre a good team, but its just like any other team. Ive got to prepare like its any other football team.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comBy ROB SHORESPORTS WRITERSenior got to keep his safety spotCoffelletto content with switch to QB INNELLO GETS START FOR NORTH PORTNorth Port coach Larry Detwiler said Tuesday Mike Innello will get the start at quarterback on Thursday against Lakewood Ranch. Innello takes over from fellow junior Christian Van Der Veer. Were going to give Mikey a shot, Detrwiler said. If he moves in the direction we hope he moves, hell finish out the last five. By ROB SHORE PREP FOOTBALL: Port Charlotte 200 medley relay at Tuesdays home dual meet against Outof-Door Academy, which the Pirate girls lost 156-134. Just more than a month into her high school swimming career, Miller nicknamed Turtle because of the way she used to pop her head up, instead of to the side, to breathe in her early swimming days is already the school record-holder in the 100 backstroke with a tine of 1:02. The medley relay team, which also includes freshman Amber Hrabak and sophomores Jaclyn Roche and Caitlin Moss-Solomon, came within a second of breaking the school record of 2:05.35 on Tuesday. Miller hopes to break the 100 freestyle and 100 butterfly records, along with the medley relay record, by the end of the season. By the time she swims her last meet in 2017, she aims to add her name to the record books in all of them, hopefully. The biggest reason for her success is the six years of experience under her belt training with the CCS Blue Fins program branch in Port Charlotte, which Pirates coach J.R. Whaley started five years ago. Miller and Hrabak are both examples of swimmers helping the team after years of year-round training in the club, which is leading to more success for the Pirates at the high school level. Hrabak won the 100 breaststroke on Tuesday and placed second in the 500 freestyle. Its taken a few years to get the kids to buy into it, Whaley said about the Blue Fins. These are the first couple that have been in the club for a number of years. That helps grow the team with swimmers who want to do it year-round and know they have to do it to do well at districts and move on. The Port Charlotte boys continued a successful season by beating Out-of-Door Academy 165-127. Chris Mcnabb won the 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle, and the Pirates won all three relays coming off a weekend trip that included two days of competition at the FSPA High School Invitational swimming and diving meet in Stuart and a trip to Wet n Wild in Orlando on the way home. I was very proud because the kids are dead tired, Whaley said. It was a huge long weekend, the kids were just exhausted today, but they got up and practiced and we had some good races today, a few personal bests. Im really proud of them.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@sun-herald.com.GirlsOUT-OF-DOOR 156, PORT CHARLOTTE 134200 medley relay: 1.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, October 1, 2014 early was unforced errors, which allowed the Manta Rays to ride their emotional high well into Game 2. Down 15-4, DeSoto County began to show re which made for longer rallies, applause-worthy saves and solid volleyball on both ends. The Bulldogs used Kacey and Kaitlin Steyers attacks and strong back-row defense to creep within single digits several times before a Bulldogs kill got tangled in the net to end their chances. The third set was the most hotly contested. The Manta Rays never lost their lead, but a few errors and a serve that sailed out did bring DeSoto County to within four points. Kacey Steyer had a pair of kills down the stretch to bring the Bulldogs to within 21-15 but with such little wiggle room, Lemon Bay was able to sit tight until Ryan planted the match-winning kill. Lemon Bay played to their potential tonight, DeSoto County coach Laura White said. When we played them before, they kind of rolled in dead and we were up more. Tonight, they beat us.MANTASFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNODesoto County High Schools Kaitlin Steyer returns serve to Lemon Bay during Tuesdays match in Englewood.

Police said an officer followed Phelpss 2014 Land Rover onto northbound Interstate 95, through the Fort McHenry Tunnel under Baltimore Harbor, and pulled him over just beyond the tunnels toll plaza. Authorities said the Baltimore-area native was cooperative. Earlier this morning, I was arrested and charged with DUI (driving under the influence), excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines, Phelps said in a statement. I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility, he added. I know these words may not mean much right now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down. The drunken-driving arrest was the second for Phelps, who has spent most his life working feverishly in the pool but admits he likes to have a good time outside of practice and competition. Emerging recently from a two-year retirement, Phelps first tested the comeback waters in April at a low-key meet in Phoenix and his progress has been steady rather than his usual impressive. USA Swimming, the national teams governing body, said: The news regarding Michael Phelps and his actions are disappointing and unquestionably serious. We expect our athletes to conduct themselves responsibly in and out of the pool, it said in a statement. I was shocked at the news, to say the least, Dara Torres, a 12-time Olympic medalist who has been on several Olympic and national swim teams with Phelps, told Reuters in a telephone interview. He was very fortunate that no one was hurt. Hes a good guy. He does work for kids. He does charity work. He could have given the keys to someone. He could have called Uber, a taxi. He has the means to do stuff like that. I just dont understand it, she said. The U.S. Olympic Committee said it was surprised by todays news. We are disappointed on a number of fronts, but want to give Michael Phelps and USA Swimming an opportunity to comment before saying anything more, the USOC said in a statement. Phelps was charged in Maryland in 2004 for drunken driving when he was 19. PHELPSFROM PAGE 1 LAKE SUZY Jacob Goldman didnt want his hole-in-one on Friday to be a newspaper headline on Saturday. He was thrilled to have hit it. Many golfers play their entire lives and never hit a hole-in-one. Goldman got his at age 16. But the Port Charlotte High School golfer wasnt so pleased with what he did after the hole-in-one. Goldman was hoping the eighth-hole ace would be something that would help propel him through the rest of his round. Instead, he played 2-over golf over the next two holes to nish the weather-shortened, 10-hole Charlotte County Boys Golf Championship with a 4-over 45. I was thinking, I better play well the next hole and make it worthwhile, Goldman said, laughing. And I did not do that. Finding a reason to be disappointed is a difcult thing to do with a 1 circled on the scorecard, though, and Goldman knew it. Even if he wasnt completely satised with his nal score, he was all smiles when retelling the story of his 164-yard hybrid dropping into the cup of the eighth green at Kingsway Country Club. I heard it hit the pin really hard, and it wasnt stopping if it didnt go in, Goldman said. So I saw it go in, but I wasnt really sure if I missed something. But, sure enough, it (went in). When Goldman shed the ball out of the cup, Port Charlotte coach Rodney Taylor grabbed it from him to give to the golfers mom, who was following along in a cart. Goldmans reaction? He said, Coach, that only put me at 2-over. I still have work to do, Taylor said. Thats how he is, though. I love it. Patient process: Tate Smith did something last Tuesday that a golfer of his caliber doesnt normally do: He hit two drives out of bounds and carded a 9 on Port Charlotte Golf Clubs 14th hole. The Port Charlotte senior wasnt angry or discouraged, though. In fact, Taylor said he was still in good spirits. The reason was the change he had made in his swing the day before. Smith had worked with his coaches at the Tim Sheredy Golf Institute to get more power on his drives, and he knew it was going to be a process he would have to work on. Smith saw results a few days later, though: He shot a 1-over 42 in 10 holes to take co-medalist honors at the county championships on Friday. Concentration key: With the county championships, Donald Ross Invitational, districts, regionals and states all coming up in the next month, Charlotte golfer Olivia Schulz knew she would have to be able to focus for all 18 holes in order to perform to her standards. So the senior spent the practices leading up to last Fridays county cham pionship working on her concentration. She shot a career-best 82 to earn medalist honors at Deep Creek Golf Club. Today, Schulz said, it really helped.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com.Goldmans ace a blessing and a curse PREP GOLF NOTEBOOKSmith shows patience with swing changeBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER TODAY Volleyball North Port at Port Charlotte, 7 p.m. Swimming Venice at Charlotte, 5 p.m. Boys golf Lemon Bay, Fort Myers, North Port at Charlotte, 3:30 p.m. Girls golf Charlotte at North Port, 3:30 p.m. THURSDAY Volleyball Donahue at Community Christian, 5:30 p.m. Imagine at Bradenton Christian, 6 p.m. Palmetto at Port Charlotte, 7 p.m. Lemon Bay at Charlotte, 7 p.m. North Port at Sarasota, 7 p.m. Lake Placid at DeSoto County, 7:30 p.m. Football Venice at Dixie Hollins, 7:30 p.m. Lakewood Ranch at North Port Port Charlotte at Fort Myers, 7:30 p.m. Boys golf Imagine at Comm.

And on Tuesday, it played like it. The Green Wave put its height advantage to good use as it jumped off the blocks quickly and cruised to a 3-0 victory (25-17, 28-26, 25-13) over Charlotte in a District 7A-11 contest. The victory put Fort Myers into a tie for rst with Gulf Coast with one district game to play, while the loss all but guaranteed Charlotte third place and a road game in the opening round of districts. Fort Myers (11-6, 4-1) led wire-to-wire in the rst and last games, but struggled mightily as the Tarpons fought back to force game point in the second before rallying to win. We were sky high in the rst game and had a mental let down in the second, but we fought through it, Fort Myers coach Stephanie Martin said. We needed to control our side of the ball and we did. The Green Wave scored the rst eight points of the match and cruised to win the rst game. However, Charlotte (11-4, 2-3) adjusted and fought tooth-and-nail in a Game 2 with seven lead changes and 14 ties. Charlotte built an 18-15 lead, the biggest lead for either team, before a 6-1 run put the Green Wave on top. But two service errors on game point gave the Tarpons life, with a Marisa Beisner kill giving Charlotte game point at 26-25. Charlotte couldnt close the deal and Fort Myers held on. We played much better in that game. I thought we would pull it out. When we didnt we just deated, Charlotte coach Michelle Dill said. Senior hitter Macy Jerger led Fort Myers with 16 kills, while Briana Correa added nine kills and 23 digs. Taylor Ferguson had 16 digs and Amy Oxton 33 assists for the winners. Junior Hailey Whitehead led the Tarpons with 10 kills, while Beisner added nine kills and 24 digs.

October 1 7, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 3 Ive never noticed how often arts and crafts fairs happened in our region until I became the editor of Lets Go! If they happen often, it must mean they are successful events in our community. Its a great thing to know that our community values the arts. Just a couple of weeks ago we had the Sullivan Street Craft Fair in Punta Gorda and a couple of weeks before that there was one in Downtown Venice. This week, there is one in Downtown Sarasota. Although, I may not be able to feature every single fair on the front page, each is as import ant as the next because each holds as much talent as the next one. The Sarasota Art & Craft Festival returns this fall in support of breast cancer research. Taking place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 4-5, the fair will feature many art and gift items inspired by the ght against breast cancer. Many vendors will also be wearing pink to show solidarity. There will also be a Green Market oering plants, exotic orchids, gourmet spices, dips and more. Admission is free. It will be held at 5 Points Park and Central Avenue in Downtown Sarasota. For more information, visit www. artfestival.com. G ABRIELA M ENDOZA Lets Go! Editor Watch out for ghosts and ghoulies along Tampa Avenue in Venice. Every building from Venice Theatre west to the Summit, including Luna Ristorante and the Venice Centre Mall, is said to be haunted. So are all the theaters and I am not just talking about the ghost lights on stage between performances. Halloween parties are occurring almost nightly at all the major theme parks. Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party is my personal favorite. It takes place most evenings this month in the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney Resort. For folks a lot tougher than I am, the ul timate scare fest is Universals Halloween Horror Nights, which is already sold out for Halloween evening. It is geared strictly for adults with strong hearts. Somewhere in between are Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, the Oct. 17 Pumpkin Toss at Tampas Lowry Park Zoo and Legoland Floridas Brick-or-Treat where the ghosts have hard edges. Legolands spooky event will be every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and each Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. all this month. Kids can wear costumes at the Magic Kingdom and also at Legoland where there will even be a contest with prizes. Only at Legoland can you build your own pumpkin at the model activity station in the Wells Fargo Fun Town 4D Theatre Plaza. While there are several Legolands around the world, only the Florida park has the worlds largest LEGO Jack-O-Lantern, made of 26,500 LEGO bricks. I think that if I every grow up, building LEGO models could be a fun job. I cried when my daughter stopped playing with them and I could no longer justify keeping them out and ready to go, while blaming her. Happy haunting!

MOVIES NOW PLAYING Runtime: 1 hr. 36 min. | Rated PG | For umor, action and some peril In the village of Cheesebridge, a Victorian-era berg obsessed with wealth, class and stinky AP PHOTOIn this image released by Columbia Pictures, Marton Csokas, left, and Denzel Washington appear in a scene from The Equalizer. If you were lucky enough to catch Denzel Washington in A Raisin in the Sun on Broadway, you saw the hugely charismatic actor portray, in an iconic role, the full complexity of a human being: strengths and weaknesses, attributes and aws, durability and vulnerability. All topped o, of course, with that boyish Washington charm. Alas, Washington doesnt always choose big-screen roles similarly worthy of his unique talent. This is especially true of The Equalizer, a thriller that tries to establish the 59-year-old actor as a middle-aged action hero, a la Liam Neeson. Here, we get to see Washington kill a lot of people. The Equalizer isnt a terrible movie, as action sagas go. It just doesnt nearly live up to what it aspires to be, which is a smart, classy update of the 1980s TV series of the same name, about an ex-government agent who spends his retirement as a sort of ultra-violent avenging angel, rubbing out villains who treat good people badly. Changes have been made liberally. On TV, Robert McCall (Edward Woodward) was a debonair middle-aged guy in a trench coat, collar upturned, cruising the streets of New York in a black Jaguar. Here, no trench coat, no Jaguar, no New York. Director Antoine Fuqua and writer Richard Wenk have moved the action to Boston, and Washingtons McCall is a blue-collar type. A widower with few possessions, he spends his days working at the Home Mart, and his nights reading literary classics and drinking tea at the diner. Its at this diner that McCall befriends a sweet young prostitute (Chloe Grace Moretz). And when her pimps nasty Russian mob types, straight from central casting rough her up so badly she ends up clinging to life in a hospital, McCalls vigilante instincts emerge. He confronts the thugs, trying to buy her freedom. They laugh. Bad move. Using his hyper-vision skills, he sizes up the room and dispatches every thug within seconds (hes counting), using handy props like a corkscrew. You could do worse than watch Washington kick butt for two hours (actually, a little more.) But it would be a lot more interesting to watch him struggle while doing it. Overall, its not a bad movie but if you are a Denzel fan, Lets Go! says go!

6 Lets Go! E/N/C/V October 1 7, 2014 UPCOMING EVENTSThirty minutes. Five secret ingredients. Four local chefs. Two dishes. Those are the primary components of Venice MainStreet's annual Iron Chef competition, which takes place on Sunday, Oct. 12, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Fins restaurant. For this year's installment, a couple of the basics are dierent, beginning with a change in location. In previous years, Iron Chef has been held at the Venice Yacht Club, but with the completion of Sharky's on the Pier's new restaurant, Fins, the competition has the potential to be even more productive. "The chefs will be able to use our brand new equipment and kitchen," said Sharky's owner Justin Pachota. "They will be able to be even more creative." In the past, the way the contest has worked is that once they arrived at the competition, each of the four participants/chefs was given one secret ingredient that they needed to use in preparing their dish. Last year's ingredient was saron, the year before that was Wonder Bread and three years ago, it was bacon. Kat Quast, director of Venice MainStreet, which presents the event, said that this year's contestants will be presented with something a little dierent. "In the spirit of change, we have added some elements from 'Chopped,'" she said. "Each chef will receive a basket containing ve ingredients. All of these ingredients must be used in some combination in the two courses, appetizer or entree." "Chopped" is a show on the Food Network, in which four chefs are each given a basket of ve ingredients, which they then have to turn into a dish that is judged on its creativity, presentation and taste, with minimal time to plan and execute. The 2014 Iron Chef will include chefs from four local restaurants: Blu' Island Bistro, Cafe Venice, The Daiquiri Deck and Snook Haven. After being allowed 30 minutes to prepare their two dishes, the chefs will present their work to the judges. "This year, three judges will be pulled from the audience, plus we have a special guest judge, Marsha Fotler, Lifestyle Contributor to 'Venice' and 'Sarasota Magazine' and culinary journalist," Quast said. "Four chefs step into the ring one chef emerges victorious." Iron Chef is a very popular, good-natured competi tion, and with the addition of audience member judg es, will be even more engaging for attendees. Though some of the contest participants may be familiar from years past, winners are not allowed to compete the year immediately following. Sharky's chef Marc Alton last won in 2012, while using secret ingredient Wonder Bread in his pan-seared scallops with blue cheese toast points. But because Sharky's is actually hosting the competition this year, they are not allowed to compete. Pachota said that is all right, because it really is all about helping to raise money for Venice MainStreet and keeping downtown Venice beautiful and viable. "We're excited to be hosting it, and are even willing to give up our Sunday dinner for it," he said. The 2014 Iron Chef Competition is Sunday, Oct. 12, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Fins at Sharkys on the Pier, 1600 Harbor Dr. S., Venice. Tickets are $25 each, and can be purchased at: Blu Island Bistro, 625 South Tamiami Trail; Cafe Venice, 116 West Venice Ave.; Venice Wine and Coee; 121 West Venice Ave.; Venice MainStreet, 101 West Venice Ave.; or online at www.VeniceMainStreet.com.

October 1 7, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 13 THINGS TO DO What favorite place might you leave not smelling as good as you feel? If youre a cigar acionado a cigar bar. Pity the poor cigar smoker. Venues for smok ing are few, and that stinky stogie compels even liberal barkeeps to ing up No Cigar Smoking signs. Smoke a cigar in the comfort of your fam ily room, watching college ball with a Yuengling in hand? Are you kidding me? If Im lucky, the better half might let me smoke in the garage. With the door open. And a fan on. In the day, gentlemen could retire to the library to make or break deals over an after-dinner cognac and cigar, while the ladies gathered to do whatever they did in the parlor. For Gods sake, how could a lady get herself a cigar? Lynn Davies could. She was such a serious archaeology/ne arts major at Florida State that she didnt even know what a Nole was until sophomore year. And yet, this studious young lady had cigar smoke in her veins. Eldest child of a Lee County judge who smoked really nasty cigars at home, Lynn is unquestionably her fathers daughter. Firstborns are usually overkill and have to live up to those expectations, she grins. Ever since a Cuban migr buddy introduced Lynn to her rst primo cigar in 1993, she hasnt stopped. In fact, she claims to have smoked each of over 30 brands and countless singles, boxes, bundles, samplers, and limited editions carried by her and husband Bills Port Charlotte cigar emporium, Tobacco Locker. Lynn and Bill met over cigars, on a cruise. After a year of cross-country courtship, they moved together to Florida. Wherever they went, they gathered cigars to the tipping point where Bill made a purchase and Lynn groaned, If we collect any more, well have to open a store. His eyes lit up, and the rest is history. When they moved into their current location seven years ago, they lled its 1,000 square feet with scientically humidied inventory and began selling online (tobaccolocker.com). Four years ago, the couple added a living room to the store. The Locker is tucked away in a mini industrial park o Collingswood, so it takes some word of mouth to draw customers in. But the word is out. Here you can sink deep into a leather club chair and relax like nowhere else. Consider this your other living room and kitchen, where you can help yourself to a cigar and craft beer or wine, with Bill or Lynn recommending the perfect pairings. You might even have your own cedar-lined cigar locker with a brass plaque engraved Tiger Man or The G odfather, and conduct likeminded conversa tions with other connoisseurs. Theres a surge of interest in the cigar business, says Lynn, and theres no question that Florida, with Cuban enclaves like Tampas Ybor City and Miami, is its hub. Clients come from all over Venice, Punta Gorda, Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Bonita Springs seeking the quality and variety of Tobacco Locker cigars. Any given day, you might nd doctors, lawn care pros like Dave Precht, CEOs, the mayor of North Port, or Vince Powers, disabled for years, all hanging out in a cloud of camaraderie. Theyre very accepting of everyone here, says Vince. And theres no membership fee! Lynn agrees, We have a good crowd. Smoking cigars is a social event, so w hen new people come in, its easy for them to join the conversation. The Davieses recently took 28 clients on a road trip to see their own cigar factory in Nicaraguaa casa (house) where workers roll cigars and tend the tobacco. They give back through fundraisers for the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation, a nonprot created by the cigar-making Fuente and Newman families to provide education and health services to poor families in the Dominican Republic. They also work with the Cigars for Warriors organization, through which they serve online customers in Afghanistan. One of them, John Callahan, just returned from his third tour. What does Lynns dad, now a former cigar smoker, make of all this? He congratulates them, laughing, When the big bust comes, youll have something to barter with!

16 Lets Go! E/N/C/V October 1 7, 2014 DINING OUTWhen Doug Eichelberger was growing up in Long Island, his parents owned a catering business in addition to working full-time jobs. That is where his love for cooking started. I was rolling meatballs in the kitchen when I was 8 years old, he said. My poor dad couldnt park his car in the garage with all the stu we had in it. Eichelberger said he was approached in 2002 by Abe Arnasi, the owner of Portono Waterfront Dining, to be his general manager. In 2006, he became one of the chefs at the restaurant. They have an extensive menu that includes shrimp and scallop alfredo, chicken fettuccine alfredo, pasta e polpette, chicken and veal Marsala, veal piccata and chicken and veal parmigiana. I put 15 dierent ingredients in my meatballs, he said. Even my mom and dad didnt do that. Seafood is another staple at Portonos. Stued ounder, grouper, and shrimp dishes are available plus another treat, especially for customers who hail from the northeast lobster fresh from Maine. Lunch and dinner specials include lobster and shrimp salad, a lobster and shrimp Caesar salad, lobster and steak, lobster and shrimp ravioli and lobster and shrimp Fra diavolo. I also make a lobster burger, Eichelberger said. But instead of putting it on a New England hot dog-style roll, I use a Kaiser roll. Because he lived in New Orleans for four months, and travels there every year for the Jazz & Heritage Festival, Eichelberger said he likes to sneak in as many Creole dishes as he can. I have jambalaya, gumbo pie and shrimp and grits on the menu, he said. I just love Cajun cooking. Portonos is closed on Monday during the summer months but Eichelberger said they oer a for $10 lunch menu on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays where all the items, such as lasagna, fried shrimp, grilled chicken salad, chicken ravioli and fried ounder dinners, cost only $10. In addition to Italian, seafood and Creole cooking, Portonos oers a 14-ounce New York strip steak, peppercorn-crusted steak au poivre, and a 14-ounce steak Sinatra, char-grilled and smothered with mushrooms, onions and peppers. Desserts are a passion of Eichelberger as well. He likes to experiment and admits he makes the best cheesecake. I have a special recipe now that is a combination of key lime and white chocolate with an Oreo cookie crust, he said. The key lime is tart and the white chocolate is sweet. It is a good balance. In accordance with the Charlotte Regional Hospitals Healthy Heart Dining Program, Eichelberger said they offer gluten-free products on their menu as well. Eichelberger said the restaurant was closed for a year after Hurricane Charley steamrolled its way up the Peace River. During that time, Arnasi added the outside deck and gazebo where bands perform on the weekends during the summer and Wednesday through Sunday during the winter months. We refer to it as B.C., or Before Charley and A.C., After Charley, he laughed. We were at ground zero when the storm hit. Matter of fact, the awnings over the Race Trac gas station you see coming over the bridge into Port Charlotte from Punta Gorda ended up in our parking lot. Despite the destruction, Eichelberger said the restaurant remodeled and reopened with the added space and a newly designed Tuscany Room that holds 110 people for small weddings, private meetings and parties. Its a perfect location to hold a private function or have an intimate dinner for two, he said. The view overlooking the harbor is magnificent. Portofinos is located at 23241 Bayshore Road, Port Charlotte. Winter hours are Sunday to Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. The restaurant is closed on Mondays during the summer months.

October 1 7, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 17 DINING OUT WITHAs the Library Manager at Venice Public Library, Ann Hall is responsible for keeping the library running smoothly. On any given day, that could mean ordering books, calling the IT department in Sarasota for tech support, or handling a dicult situation with a library customer. Hall takes it all in stride, with a sunny demeanor and vivacious personality not often associated with the word librarian. I tell people, Im not your mothers librarian, Hall said with a laugh. You have to have good people skills to manage a library because youre working with the public. My sta has a lot of responsibility, but they call me in when they need me. When shes not managing the library, she enjoys dining out, especially at one of her favorite restaurants, Cassariano Italian Eatery, 313 W. Venice Ave., Venice. Cassarianos menu is packed with appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches and entrees. Hall said she has tried many of them and all are delicious. But she didnt hesitate to order her favorite, the Linguine Integrali allOrtolana, or whole wheat linguine, mixed veggies and tomatoes. It arrived steaming with a wonderful aroma, a nice mix of vegetables and a decorative crisp on top. Even the smaller lunch portion was large enough that Hall took half of it home. The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday for lunch (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and dinner (4:30 p.m.), and Sunday for dinner only. Its been in Venice for nearly eight years, and at its current location for one year. Despite they nearly tripled their seating capacity from the move, reservations are still suggested. In fact, server April Mielchen said that in-season reservations often need to be made several weeks in advance. Beginning Oct. 5, Cassarianos will have Jazz Nights on Sundays, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at no extra charge. For re servations, call 941-485-0507. Aside from dining out, Hall also likes to speak out to the community, often enlightening peo ple with all that the library oers. In speaking to a group of young professionals re cently, they were surprised to learn that e-books, music, magazines and videos can all be used at no charge through the library. Users dont even have to come in to the library; they can use the services online as long as they have a library card. Many people do come in to the library, however, to use the Internet, also free of charge. Some bring their laptops and use the free Wi-Fi and electricity. Others, who arent as computer savvy, may need some help using the librarys computers. Snowbirds who are only here in-season dont want to pay for Internet, so they come to the library, said Hall. They can even print for 15 cents per page. Of course, the library still has books, and a lot of them. Our area has many highly educated retirees, so we must have a wide collection ranging from books on medicine to gardening, physics, cooking and UFOs, Hall said. In her spare time, Hall likes boating, counted cross-stitch and, of course, reading. Shes also very involved in the Womens Sertoma Club of Venice, which organizes the annual Sun Fiesta. This years event will be Oct. 17, 18 and 19, and Hall describes her role as the beer tent lady. The Venice Public Library is located at 300 S. Nokomis Ave., Venice.

18 Lets Go! E/N/C/V October 1 7, 2014 DINING OUTIf you havent been to the Olde World Restaurant and Lounge lately and its dicult to imagine anyone around here who hasnt nows the time to go. Celebrating its 28th anniversary in January, the iconic North Port restaurant continues to oer an extensive, eclectic menu and provide a gathering place where you can enjoy a wide range of entertain ment and activities. Owners Christine Zagrobelny and Joe and Teresa Skoczylas arent kidding when they describe Olde World as Floridas Meeting Place. The Shriners, Lions, Rotary, North Port Chamber and other groups frequent the restaurant for business and pleasure, as do Texas Hold em poker players, karaoke singers and a host of others. Our party and banquet room alone can accommo date 100 people, with a dance oor and bar, Teresa said. We host weddings, baby showers, birthday parties, anniversaries, wakes you name it. Olde World attracts a diverse clientele that appreciates the relaxed and welcoming setting. We appeal to dierent age groups, Christine said. They come for the atmosphere and the food. We love people and keep our prices in line, so they can have a good meal for good value. Open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, Olde World oers a wide-ranging menu. There are so many choices that reading the menu itself is part of the fun. And each item is prepared to perfection. Breakfast starts at $3.75, and you can substitute Eggbeaters for a $1 up charge. Premium choices include eggs benedict and Lox-a-Benedict, plus authentic U.S. Marine Corps S.O.S. (if you dont know what that means, dont ask). For lunch, you can choose from an array of creatively named sandwiches, including the Beef Barb-E-Q Streishand, Moehammed Ali (the heavyweight champion of chix sandwiches) and Marcel Marsooo. Then theres the Holy Guacamole West Coast burger and the Patty Dukie melt. Dinner prices range from $9 to $21. Daily dinner specials include Kentucky bourbon New York strip steak, stued salmon and mussels marinara over pasta. Also on the dinner menu are prime rib, seafood pasta, tilapia and grouper, which Christine says is our number one seller. The restaurant also puts together a variety of gluten-free choices. Everything on our menu is prepared fresh and cooked to order, Christine said proudly. We dont use any frozen food. We prepare our own soups, salads, quiche and breadsticks from scratch Teresa added, as well as our creative salads and sandwiches. Food and service has certainly given Olde World a loyal following, but its nothing compared to the loyalty of the sta. Of the 50 people employed there, Christine says, 90 percent have been there at least 10 years. In fact, the devoted sta may be a big reason the customers keep coming back. Day manager Kim Chartrand, for example, started at Olde World six months after the restaurant opened. Asked why she stayed so long, Kim simply pointed to Christine. Its a family atmosphere. Joe is Christines brother, so she and Teresa are sisters-in-law. Christines late husband, John Zagrobelny was one of North Ports most prominent citizens. His tireless eorts in making North Port a great place to live, both as a business leader and community supporter, brought him numerous accolades over the years. In 1995, the U.S. 41 access road leading to Olde World was renamed Zagrobelny Way in his honor. Joe, the restaurants main chef, created many of the dishes that have become synonymous with Olde World. He was a chef in Connecticut before moving to Florida. We used to come down with John and Christine and visit family here, Joe said. We found this place and thought it would be a good investment, since there was no quality restaurant between Port Charlotte and Venice. Bartender Robin Simpson has been with Olde World 23 years. Her specialties include Mai Tais and all manner of martinis, including a pina colada version. As day manager, Kim oversees the breakfast and lunch shifts, including scheduling and bookkeeping. She also helps out in the dining room and kitchen when needed. Someone always needs help when it gets busy, she said, and it always gets busy. The same could be said of night manager David Tavarez, who started at Olde World 10 years ago as a bus boy and worked his way up. This place has a unique atmosphere, and thats a big reason its so successful, he said. Its not a cookie-cutter restaurant. Indeed. Olde World continues to stand alone as a restaurant that cares for its customers and community. Were a family, Christine said, me, Joe, Teresa, the sta, and our customers. Our snowbirds let us know when theyre going away, and were one of the rst stops they make when they return. This is our home, she added, spreading her arms to encompass the restaurant, the city of North Port and the world. Were here to stay. The Olde World Restaurant is at 14415 Tamiami Trail, North Port. For more information, call them at 941-426-1155.Everything Olde is new againBy DAN MEARNSSUN CORRESPONDENT Executive chef Peter Dotalo keeps food simmering in the Olde World kitchen. You can get lost in the Sherwood Forest, with corned beef, pastrami, cole slaw and Russian dressing between two slices of Olde Worlds signature swirl bread.

Assistant manager Kim Chartrand works the day shift.SUN PHOTOS BY DAN MEARNSOlde World owners, from left, Teresa and Joe Skoczylas and Christine Zagrobelny, display a serving of grouper Florentine.

October 1 7, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 19 LIVE MUSICThe Copperhead Band, which is best known locally for its southern/classic rock style, will open for the legendary Charlie Daniels Band on Oct. 10 at the Englewood Event Center. That show is sold out and Copperhead Band guitarist and singer Dave McReynolds said the group is thrilled to be a part of the event. Id like to say we got that gig through hard work, practice and sticking to what we believe in, McReynolds said. Weve gotten some local notoriety over the last couple of years because we made the decision to play just the stu we like, and not just sell out and play anything because it would sell. Some people have taken an interest in that and the Englewood Event Center is one of them. Copperhead was formed inDecember of 2009. Drummer Gary Arnold and bass player Tim Freeset out to create what they termed a good band with longevity.Arnold and Free next brought in guitarist Todd Rodgers and the band bounced around for about six months before receiving their rst paid gigs. Copperhead needed a lead singer/guitarist and Rogers suggested an old school friend, Mark Rom, with whom he had played in a number of other bands. Rom showed for a practice and after the rst song, wasasked to join. In 2012, McReynolds, who is from Port Charlotte, was added and the band was complete. I think the name The Copperhead Band was taken from names drawn from a hat, McReynolds laughed. They had a bunch of names and that one got picked. Their music is a blend of classic rock, southern rock, blues and country rock, McReynolds said, with cover songs ranging from Lynyrd Skynyrd and Van Morrison to Foghat, and Steve Earle with a healthy mix of their own original songs mixed in. Were southern rock with a country air, he said. We do classic rock as well, but I think we all gravitate to a more southern approach to it. We do Allman Brothers and Blackberry Smoke, which is collectively one of our favorite bands. We do the Eagles and the Doobie Brothers. We also cover some country stu with an edge, like Jason Aldean and The Kentucky Headhunters. McReynolds added the group has only ve original songs nished, with a lot more in the hopper and plans to showcase some of them when opening for the Charlie Daniels Band. They also appear frequently at the popular restaurant/bar Englewoods On Dearborn, where theyve scheduled a show on Oct. 3. Thats our rst gig back after our summer o, McReynolds said. We go on at 7 p.m. that night. Thats a popular spot. Theyve had a lot of national blues acts there and were one of the bands they like to have as a regular. Other upcoming dates for The Copperhead Band include a 9 p.m. show on Oct. 17 at the Loony Bin in Port Charlotte and a 7 p.m. show on Oct. 24 at the Local group The Copperhead Band to open for Charlie DanielsBy STEVEN J.

Vendors are invited to secure a spot to sell their products, from produce to baked goods to crafts and more. This is a great opportunity for vendors to showcase their homemade, handmade, homegrown products. Vendors may call 863-990-2340 to secure a spot. The theme of the Oct. 4 Farmers Market is Fall Florida Style, featuring Fall produce, Fall crafts and fall colors. To kick it o, Arcadia Main Street is sponsoring Scarecrows on Main. This will be an opportunity for businesses, clubs and individuals to form a team and build a scarecrow. Straw is being provided, and groups will bring their own materials for creating their scarecrows on Oct. 4. Once completed, the scarecrows will be displayed along the sidewalks of downtown Arcadia where they will lend a festive atmosphere. The scarecrow building will begin at 10 a.m. in the Suntrust parking lot (where the hay will be). Spots are limited call Main Street at 863-990-2340 to register to be part of Scarecrows on Main.Arcadia Farmers Market returns Oct. 4 Celebrate a 100th birthday and enjoy the annual Miakka hootenanny Sunday at the Old Miakka Schoolhouse. Still being used although not as a schoolhouse is the 100-year-old schoolhouse building, which will be open for tours during Sundays event. Both the event and parking are free. We spell Miakka with an i because that is the right way, volunteer Brad Fitzgerald said. Many people here are particular about the spelling of Miakka. A common story is that when Miakka was registered on the Federal map for a post oce, the man who sent in the request wrote so poorly that they couldnt read it, so the little settlement went on the federal papers as being spelled with a y instead of an i. Some folks refer to the community as Old Miakka, but others insist on simply Miakka. In either case, a 100-year-old building that is still in use is somewhat rare in the Sarasota County area. Miakka was the rst school district to petition the Manatee County School Board to issue $2,500 in bonds for construction of the building. Contractor J. E. Rogers was hired on Aug. 20, 1914, and 2 acres of land for the new building was to be deeded to the county by Augustus M. Wilson. The new schoolhouse, sited to face north and elevated in case of high water, was completed on Sept. 10, 1914. Professor Lee Hall and the rst students moved into the building on Sept. 24, 1914. A back room was added sometime later and, in 1937, a sidewalk and modern outhouse were constructed. Six grades were housed in the school in the 1930s with Jasper Crowley as the teacher. The school closed in 1944. The building was taken over by the Miakka Community Club in October 1948. The Board of Public Instruction signed over the deed to the club on Dec. 3, 1948. The club has maintained the building ever since. The old school was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on July 3, 1986. A $7,000 state restoration grant for matching funds was awarded in August 1990. The school bell was rung on June 8, 1991, to celebrate restoration of the schools exterior. A wheelchair ramp was added and sidewalk repaired. Interior and exterior painting is next on the maintenance schedule. The Hootenanny will accept contributions to be a student, teacher, principal, or school superinten dent, with recognition on a plaque. Proceeds from the anniversary and other events go to support the maintenance and restoration of the old schoolhouse. To get there, use Exit 210 (Fruitville) o I-75 and travel east to the end of Fruitville. Turn right and watch for the old Schoolhouse about 2 miles ahead.
