AND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000 This Our View about the Medicaid you people are recommending all these other Republicans because Gov. Rick Scott is the one doing all this stuff. I wonder when you are going to wake up and realize since Scott has the toilet paper all these other clowns are going to follow him because they cant wipe without nothing. No matter what he says they are going to follow him. But you keep recommending Republicans to be elected to ofce. I dont know where you get your thinking from. D.D. Thanks, D.D. Your comment is fair we do recommend a lot of Republicans. We recommend more Republicans than the number of lovebugs found on the front of my car the rst week in May. Thats a lot of Republicans. It must be disheartening to be a Democrat when you see our recommendations so heavily weighted toward Republicans. One reason for our recommending more Republicans is the Republican label in Florida is close to meaningless. People of all political persuasions join the Republican Party in order to get elected. Charlie Crist is a good example. He was a Republican. When he was governor he acted like a Democrat. He and his fellow Republicans attacked the free enterprise system, suggesting the home insurance companies were gouging Florida consumers. His solution, in tight partnership with a so-called Republican Legislature, used Citizens Insurance to create a government takeover of the home insurance market. Were they acting like Republicans? Current or recent Republican leaders of the Legislature once were Democrats except that they switched parties. Don Gaetz became Senate President and Allan Bense became House Speaker after changing parties. This trend of switching parties to become a Republican in order to get elected is true locally as well. Youll have a hard time convincing me that even though they are all Republicans that the Sarasota or Charlotte county commissions are what most folks think of when they think of Republicans. I was talking with a friend during the last Charlotte commission race. He was mentioning how hard he was campaigning to stop that liberal Democrat, Valerie Guenther, from beating a real Republican, Bill Truex. I asked if he had ever met Valerie. She was for protecting and promoting the environment in Charlotte because she thinks it is key to Charlottes future my friend agreed on that. Shes a person who believes government can be a force for good, but the use of that force needs to be carefully scrutinized. I suggested if she was a commissioner that she would be less liberal than several existing Republican commissioners I named. Tell her to switch to the Republican Party and I can write her a check, he responded. To Valeries credit, she has stayed a Democrat. I respect that because I do believe if she switched parties, she could get elected. In the current system, if ve Republicans run in a closed primary and the incumbent becomes the top vote getter albeit receiving just 31 percent of the votes then they are the winner. Even if the other 69 percent of the votes were an anti-incumbent vote. I much prefer the system in North Port. Everyone runs without party afliation. You actually have to know the candidates instead of assuming because of the party label that you know what they stand for. The top two vote-getters, if no one wins a majority in the primary, face each other in a runoff. David Dunn-Rankin is president and publisher of the Sun. Email him at matter what NORTH PORT A fatal shooting Wednesday morning ended with the death of two people, in what police said appeared to be a possible murder-suicide. North Port Police responded to a domestic disturbance call at 2447 Florida Terrace at 9:06 a.m., and were informed on the way to the scene that gunshots had been red. It was a domestic violence incident between a male and female who are known to one another, North Port Police Capt. Chris Morales said. It is an isolated incident. The neighbor hood is considered safe. Police conrmed that no other people were involved in the shooting, and a deceased male and female were found upon arrival to the scene. By 10:30 a.m., police had Florida Terrace and Opa Locka Lane blocked off from trafc.

Beginning next week, Sarasota County schools will institute Meatless Mondays, where only meat-free dishes will be served in cafeterias on the rst day of each school week.SARASOTA COUNTY To try and encourage healthy eating habits, the Sarasota County School District announced this week that, beginning next week, it will institute Meatless Mondays at all district schools. This means that school cafeterias will serve only meat-free dishes. Items on the elementary school menu for Mondays in October, for example, include a veggie pasta bake, spaghetti with marinara sauce, veggie pita delight and grilled cheese, many of which are items school cafeterias already serve on other days of the week. It really is a subtle change, said Beverly Girard, director of district food and nutrition services. I like the idea of communicating to kids that it is OK to go away from animal proteins for more plant-based proteins.

Her ex-husband the childrens father addressed the court during the hearing at the Charlotte County Justice Center and called the accuseds actions pure evil, but wanted to go on the record that he was in agreement with the deal. What me and my family want from this is for her to get help, Andrew Moore said, adding that he hopes his children can rebuild a relationship with their mother.

The school district sent a letter this week to parents of students at Neil Armstrong and Kingsway elementaries, which are the only schools believed to be affected so far, asking them to keep their children home if theyre sick.

Call 941-625-4175, ext. 221., Featured EventsPAID ADVERTISEMENTS PORT CHARLOTTE Lorenzo Marion recalls having his rst vision at the age of 6. The local au thor, who has appeared on Blog Talk Radio as an international psychic medium, now envisions helping other kids develop their gifts. He plans to soon kick off the rst event for his new endeavor, which he calls Extraordinary Kids. Marion plans to offer meditations, seminars and eld trips, for kids, 8-16, with unique talents, not to be confused with just high IQs. Charlotte County already has an Opportunities for Motivational Enrichment Goal-Oriented Activities program known as OMEGA for gifted kids with high IQs. In addition to these kids, he will also include children with all different kinds of gifts from psychic, to athletic, or musically talented. Those kids are often called prodigy kids like a 4-year-old playing Mozart, he said. I wanted to include all of the above. I was born psychically gifted. I didnt just want to make it about that. I wanted to bring in all of them. The rst meditation called Meditation for the Soul, is planned from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Port Charlotte Beach Complex on 4500 Harbor Blvd. It will cost $7 for kids to attend and parents can come for free. Even though theyre very gifted, theyre very isolated, so if theyre around fellow peers equal to them, it will make them comfortable, so they dont feel so isolated for being differ ent, Marion said. Parents can RSVP for this event online at www. or by calling his direct line at 941-624-6346. In addition to meditation and visualization programs for kids to focus on what their goals are, activities may include Reiki, a spiritual form of healing, drumming circles, and other activities for kids with psychic intuition. Marion, a Port Charlotte resident, has been in the psychic medium eld for 18 years. The idea for Extraordinary Kids came about because the majority of his clients had been asking advice about their children who were gifted, so he decided to put something together that would help their children be able to develop their talents in a productive way. I wish I had some kind of group like this when I was a kid, he said. This is my way of giving back.

The Sun /Thursday, October 2, 2014 E/N/C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS CHARLOTTE COUNTY A man arrested for allegedly helping a runaway teen who was believed to be nine months pregnant with his child learned Wednesday he will be held on $2 million bond, and is not to have contact with the newborn child or mother. Hailey Kyle Vallier, 24, was charged Tuesday with a felony count of interfering with the custody of a minor, and is being held at the Charlotte County Jail. His rst appearance was Wednesday, and Charlotte County Judge Peter Bell issued the no-contact order and conrmed the bond amount. The Hialeah Police Department issued an alert for a missing or runaway teen on Sept. 11, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement began investigating. The pregnant 15-year-old girl was last seen leaving a medical ofce in Hialeah. Authorities believed Vallier who is from Orlando, with Charlotte County ties is the father of the child, which since has been born. They said they thought the girl was with him. The FDLE canceled the missing person alert Sept. 17. Its unknown from reports available Wednesday where the girl was found, or how Vallier was found. State author ities arrested Vallier in Charlotte County. Vallier has helped the girl run away at least two other times in the last three years, police reports show.Police: Search warrant leads to drug arrestNORTH PORT A North Port man faces several drug charges after police served a search warrant at his Grobe Street home Wednesday, according to the North Port Police Department. Marjesta Quintin Kingcade, 34, of the 5200 block of Grobe Street, faces two counts of selling marijuana, along with one count each of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of narcotic equipment and possession of marijuana. Authorities had been monitoring the home for several weeks, and served the warrant around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. Inside the home, detectives found a dinner plate with white powdery residue and marijuana inside a lockbox, the NPPD report shows. They also reportedly found a digital scale and several small plastic bags inside the home. Kingcade remained at the Sarasota County Jail Wednesday afternoon on $32,000 bond.Report: Pack of smokes leads to violenceNORTH PORT A North Port woman was charged Monday with battery and aggravated assault, after attacking a man because he wouldnt go buy her cigarettes, according to a North Port Police report. Marika Heaven Harvey, 24, of the 300 block of Renick Lane, ar gued with and eventually attacked the 28-yearold victim around 7:30 p.m. Sunday, after spending the majority of the day drinking, the report states. Harvey allegedly punched the victim in the face, which caused the victim to grab a child living at the home and take refuge in the bathroom. The report states Harvey started tearing pieces off of the door, but soon disappeared into the master bedroom. The victim then tried to leave the home, but Harvey then emerged from the bedroom and pointed a black handgun at the victim and told him she was going to kill him, according to the report. The victim next told his mother to protect the kids and he ed the home, calling authorities. Harvey was taken into custody around 9 p.m., and was transported to the Sarasota County Jail, where she was released Tuesday after posting $11,000 bond.Dump truck strikes FHP vehicleSARASOTA COUNTY A dump truck on Monday blew a tire on Interstate 75 near mile marker 191, causing a three-car crash which included a Florida Highway Patrol troopers vehicle according to an FHP report. The dump truck, driven by Brenda Carney, 54, of Bradenton, was traveling north in the right lane around 4:30 p.m. when the trucks tire blew out near the River Road exit, causing it to strike a 2005 Mitsubishi driven by Francis Livingston, 82, of Punta Gorda, the report shows. Those two vehicles then crashed into the 2012 Dodge Charger driven by Trooper Kenneth Watson, 44, of Venice. The dump truck struck the guardrail and overturned, the report states. No one was injured in the crash, and Carney was cited for driving unsafe equipment. The crash caused delays in the northbound lanes of I-75.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C The Sun /Thursday, October 2, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE individuals were known, but police currently were waiting to inform nextof-kin before releasing their names. Chris and Teresa Ertle live three houses down from the site of the shooting, and although they were not overly familiar with the people who lived there, they said they sometimes would see a woman walking her dog, and they would share neighborly hellos. Chris was sitting in his garage around 8:30 a.m. when he said he heard two or three gunshots, followed by two muffled gunshots. He dismissed it as fireworks being shot off, and didnt realize police had cordoned off part of his street until Teresa arrived home about an hour later. You dont expect anything like this to happen around here, Chris said. This is a quiet street. Sarasota County Clerk of Court records show the home where the shooting took place is owned by Heidi DeCarlo, 43, and Bush Bena, 53. DeCarlo and Bena are both from Ipswich, Mass., and Bena is originally from Albania. Bena has owned a home in North Port since 1994, records show. He renanced that property, located at 1333 S. Hartland St., several times before it fell into foreclosure in 2010. Both Bena and DeCarlo have owned the home on Florida Terrace since 2009, according to records. Neither have had any criminal history in Sarasota or Charlotte counties, records show. Comments on the North Port Suns Facebook page claimed that the shooting stemmed from a soon to be ex-husband, and called DeCarlo a beautiful person. A woman named Julie Beaulieu identified herself as the sister of the woman killed, adding, My sister is now with the angels ... her husband was a lunatic ... the police are doing a great job given the circumstances. Beaulieu could not be reached for comment Wednesday. The Sun requested any previous incident reports associated with the home on Florida Terrace, but the NPPD records department said such documents are part of the ongoing investigation, which remains open. They cited state statute 119.071(2)(c), which governs intelligence information for criminal investigations. Police were conducting witness interviews at the NPPD Wednesday afternoon. No arrests have been made.Email: Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comTWOFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY ALLISON SHIRKNorth Port Police responded to a domestic disturbance call at 9:06 a.m. Wednesday at 2447 Florida Terrace. By 10:30 a.m., police had blocked o the cross streets Florida Terrace and Opa Locka Lane. by the district, the Meatless Monday campaign, now an international movement, was created by the U.S. government as a resource-saving measure during World War I. It was revived in 2003 by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Monday Campaigns to promote abstaining from meat one day a week for personal health and for the health of the planet. Girard said her ofce has been talking with Meatless Monday staff for some time about putting the plan into place. A couple of years ago, we tried a nonmeat item on our menu every day because our students had indicated they wanted one, Girard said. The real idea behind it is to meet the request of our kids. I think were even the rst or one of the rst districts in the state of Florida (to implement Meatless Mondays). District spokesman Scott Ferguson said the decision was an administrative one, not one made at the School Board level. According to, there are no other school districts in Florida participating. We are not participating in that, said Mike Riley, Charlotte County Public Schools spokesman. Our food service director has been very conscious of vegans. ... We go out and shop specically for that, so theres always a lot of healthy options. For Sarasota County school cafeteria staff, things wont be too different. Stacy Shuman, main cook at Glenallen Elementary, said the district supplies the recipes, and she doesnt expect to see too many changes, since many food items staff prepare are already meatless. Theyre just changing things around a little, she said. We do have some vegetarian beans coming in, which basically means theres no pork in them. Girard said some menu items including a vegetarian and hummus sub have been tweaked. Im doing everything I can to make our program enticing and keep it current, she said. Shuman added Sarasota County has been ahead of the curve when it comes to helping students eat more healthfully. Before she worked at Glenallen, she also cooked at Lamarque Elementary, and said she would often receive calls from parents, asking her how to prepare vegetables their children had rst tried at school. Matt Gruhl, Heron Creek Middle School principal, said quite a few of his students already take advantage of the salad bar, which features no meat. I do have quite a few students who go with healthy options. In general, out of the three school districts Ive worked for, I think (Sarasota) has the most healthy food that Ive seen. When I look at whats available ... for students, they can have macaroni and cheese, and still have pizza sticks, so its not like there arent good options for students. Everything in moderation. We have meat on other days. Meatless Mondays are planned for the remainder of the school year, and vegetarian dishes will continue to be offered as options on other days as well. Staff Writer Sommer Brokaw contributed to this report.Email: annek@sun-herald.comMEATLESSFROM PAGE 1Im doing everything I can to make our program enticing and keep it current. Beverly Girard, Director of District food and Nutrition Services Ana Scuteri, an epidemiologist with the Charlotte County Health Department. We dont know exactly what it is. We dont want to be alarming, but we might know what it is within a couple of days, if not (today). District spokesman Mike Riley confirmed that on Wednesday alone, a total of 33 kids called out: 15 at Neil Armstrong and 18 at Kingsway. Scuteri said shes not sure what is causing the illness, since the health department has collected only one sample so far. Based on the symptoms, it looks like this is norovirus, but theyre children, so its hard to tell, she said. There are so many things that can be affecting them. Symptoms mirror gastrointestinal illness with nausea, vomiting and stomachache. And health officials warn that its contagious. Our message to the parents who have a child who has any of those symptoms: Please keep them at home for 48 hours, Scuteri said. Thats the only way were going to prevent further cases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the most effective way to prevent the spread of norovirus is through handwashing and general cleanliness. Schools have brought in extra custodians to help prevent the spread of the illness.Email: sbrokaw@sun-herald.comILLNESSFROM PAGE 1 daughter and 13-yearold son endured for about half a year. According to court documents, Antuna made the children hold cans in their outstretched arms for hours, eat only vegetables for days at a time, and he beat them with a leather belt. On at least one occasion, Antuna and Capps wrote I lie to my mom all the time on the boys arms in permanent marker and made him go to school like that. Moore, who lives in Hillsborough County, noticed bruising while his children were staying with him in April 2013. He took them to a hospital, and a doctor found the injuries to be consistent with child abuse. State ofcials and local law enforcement agencies began investigating. Antuna was the primary abuser, but Capps was aware of what was going on and was often present, court records show. Capps pleaded no contest to, and was found guilty of, two reduced misdemeanor counts of contributing to the dependency of a minor. She was sentenced to two years probation and must attend parenting classes. She was originally facing much more serious child abuse charges. Its appropriate and fair, given the circumstances, said Steven Burch, Capps attorney, speaking on behalf of his client after Wednesdays hearing. The purpose of the plea deal was to keep the kids from having to go to trial again, and so (Capps) can begin the reunication process (with her children). Antuna was convicted by a jury in March of two counts of child abuse, and 20th Circuit Judge Amy Hawthorne who presided over Capps case, too sentenced him in May to three years in prison, despite pleas from several family members who spoke out during the sentence hearing. Assistant State Attorney Jennifer Garczewski had asked for more prison time. The child victims had to testify during that three-day trial. Garczewski, who also prosecuted the Capps case, told the judge Wednesday the children did not want to go through the process again. When Moore was addressing the court, he reiterated that. He also said he was upset that Capps mother, the childrens grandmother, didnt do more to help the kids when she found out what was going on. He called the situation a nightmare, but added he never wanted Capps incarcer ated he wants her to better herself and become a good mother again. In attendance Wednesday with Moore was his new wife and his son; his daughter did not want to attend. His son, now 14, also went on the record to speak to the court and his mother. It breaks my heart, he said.

The Sun /Thursday, October 2, 2014 E/N/C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS EAST OF PUNTA GORDA A local man who works for the Boca Grande Fire Department has been accused of having an inappropriate relationship with an underage relative, according to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce. David Paul Leclercq, 37, was arrested Tuesday afternoon at his home on Bermont Road, where he allegedly touched the 14-year-old girl under her underwear while they were in bed together at least three times this year. The girl reportedly told authorities Leclercq was her boyfriend, and the two had been talking about moving in together and getting married. The BGFD has launched its own investigation into the situation. No disciplinary action had been taken as of Wednesday, according to Chief C.W. Blosser. Were going to take a look at it and make a decision based on what we nd out, he said. (Our investigation) is ongoing. Leclercq is a reghter/ EMT who has been with the department for ve years. The relationship between Leclercq and the girl was discovered by the girls father Sept. 19. The girl had fallen asleep while texting, and her father looked at her phone. The sheriffs report shows the father found text messages on (the girls) phone which were sexual in nature and believed to have been sent from (Leclercq). The girls mother was woken by the argument that ensued, and she contacted the Sheriffs Ofce. While talking to investigators, the girl said she and Leclercq became close because they had common interests, and they began kissing earlier this year. The contact progressed. Tuesday, a CCSO detective conducted a forensic analysis of the girls phone, which her parents had turned over to authorities. The detective found the girl and Leclercq had an extensive messaging history using Kik, a smartphone messaging system. Leclercq reportedly had sent her photos of his genitals, and the two engaged in explicit conversations. Authorities were able to identify Leclercq because there was a photo of his face and a re-training cer ticate made out to him on the same Kik chats that contained explicit messages, the sheriffs report shows. Leclercq, who remained at the Charlotte County Jail Wednesday on $750,000 bond, is charged with using an electronic device to send harmful material to a minor, and lewd or lascivious molestation a second-degree felony that could be punishable by 15 years in prison. He has been ordered to have no contact with the victim, if released.

NORTH PORT Waterways in North Port are still on track to be connected through the Blueways Project in the coming months, following more than a year of planning. City commissioners will see a presentation on the rst phase of the project, which will connect waters that run through Butler, Dallas White, McKibben and Blue Ridge parks, during todays special meeting at 4 p.m. at City Hall. The approval of the project plan was given in September 2013. Commissioners approved the agreement to work with consultant KimleyHorn & Associates at a cost of $62,456 during that meeting. Commissioners approved the project plans in May when the rst drawings were presented to the board. Kimley-Horn gave an original estimate of $473,220 for the rst phase of the project. Commissioners were able to trim the cost back to $315,000 by delaying the connection to Butler Park via Myakkahatchee Creek until sometime next year. The project, which is being funded through surtaxes, lists a budget in the amount of $650,000. The cost of each phase of the project may vary due to ination and pricing on items needed for construction, according to Kimley-Horns stakeholder meeting minutes provided by the city. Phase 1 will allow for water recreation, kay aking, canoing, etc., to become more accessible for residents looking to move between the three locations in North Port. In addition to the connectivity being created between the waterways, amenities such as a shing pier and additional canoe/kayak launches will accompany the phase 1 plans. The phase 1 map depicts the route beginning at Blue Ridge Park, and continuing south down the Blue Ridge Waterway through Blue Ridge Lake onto McKibben Park. After McKibben, the route continues west on the Cocoplum Waterway to Dallas White Park. Kimley-Horn previously stated to Parks and Recreation Manager Sandy Pfundheller that the rst phase could be complete any time between December and late March 2015. Kayaks and canoes will have better entryways into North Port waters with the addition of the launch sites. A proposed double launch pad at Dallas White will give ample space for paddlers to enter and explore the waterways. Blueways project manager Lou Sperduto could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon. City commissioners will open the oor for discussion and more input on the Blueways update presentation during this afternoons meeting. Todays special meeting will also include a number of recognitions and proclamations, and the status of the ongoing Road Bond project to rehabilitate 266 miles of substandard roads in the city.

There are three vacancies. Harvey Goldstein, current president, approved the nominating committee personally. Surprise only three of six people who applied were considered qualied (including Harvey, who is running for his almost 13th consecutive year on the BOD). The three considered not qualied have ve college degrees between them, one has 30 years of professional contracting experience in the aerospace industry, another is director of respiratory services at Bayfront Hospital and employed there for 18 years; another is a Vietnam vet, life member of DAV, was a chief nancial ofcer at the U.S. Energy Department and upon leaving government, owned eight successful small businesses in Maryland, California and Florida. Not qualied wow? In defense of Harvey Goldstein, we would like to thank him for eliminating our voting decision. I guess Harvey knows best. Editor: Examination of the special sales tax funding project wish list discloses commissioners offering many feel good projects in an attempt to gain citizen goodwill. Listed projects require voter examination before voting Nov. 4 to extend for six years the 1 percent special sales tax, now extended 16 years more than commissioners originally committed. Multiuse trails/on-road bicycle lanes $3.543 million, represents extravagant overkill. The county already has an extensive park system. Thirty-eight percent of our land is in preservation status not paying taxes, and can be used for hiking. Bicycle riders/ hikers using such accommodations (at no charge) represent a minute proportion of Charlottes 166,000 residents. Recreation centers are big wish-list projects totaling a whopping $25.1 million: Rec Center in Murdock Village $8.132M and a pool, $4.5M; Ann Deaver Rec Center $9.036M; and existing rec center renovations $3.543M. County already operates four rec centers costing taxpayers annually a net $1.628M to operate. Oyster Creek Pool Splash Pad $260,000. County operates two other public pools with aggregate annual budgeted net operational costs totaling $969,000. Currently, well over 40,000 private pools in the county serve owners. Demand no more public pool investment. Many bad investments being proposed for small numbers of special interest users. Smoke and mirrors being used to convince taxpayers politicians feel good projects are critical, but commissioners are unable to nd room for them in the county budget. Vote no on tax extension; no is the smart and informed vote.Amy Sohl Punta GordaEditor: With passenger trafc soaring at the Punta Gorda Airport, now is an opportunity for community growth. It is also an opportunity for a thoughtful revisit to the Punta Gorda Airports Noise Mitigation Program, and yes they have one. Based upon my experience, I think the Noise Mitigation Program can be improved. I live over three and one-half miles from the Punta Gorda Airport, and I can hear the jet noise at the airport from inside my house. A few years ago I was living approximately two miles from the Tampa International Airport. I could be on the walkway, that went over the wetlands immediately adjacent to my condo, and watch the jets rise to the sky. At a distance of approximately two miles there was no noise problem. Now if I was comparing the Punta Gorda Airport to an airport in another part of the country that has different meteorological conditions or a different geology (i.e., mountains) then the comparison would be without merit. This is not the case with the Punta Gorda Airport and the Tampa International Airport. Both are nestled into a community. Both have nearby wetlands and nearby signicant water bodies. One airport is impacting the community with noise much more than the other. Lets revisit the Punta Gorda Airports Noise Mitigation Program. Editor: Taxpayers are again being hoodwinked by the Sun which describes a $12.6M recreation center/pool sales tax wish list project for Murdock Village as the shiniest star in the constellation. Its troublesome the rst project in this failed $140M-plus, taxpayer-funded investment might be a governmental feel good project, not a private sector sponsored project adding new jobs and signicant value to the local economy. Indicative of skewed political wisdom. A county bureaucrat positively associates this project with probable creation of many future income oppor tunities, but conveniently doesnt specify numbers, for such are dreams. This project, if it becomes reality, will represent another large net annual raid on taxpayer wallets for above the enormous building costs lurk $653,211 of annual operating expense connected with this dreamland project. Clear thinking voters believe such unsubstantiated government-cited revenue sources will never make this project acceptable. This projects ROI is as bad as Murdock Village itself. County says this project must complete its area master plan vision no matter how much farther it digs into taxpayers pockets. If this project truly is critical for Charlottes future, which it isnt, then commissioners/ bureaucrats must quickly put it into the Capital Improvements Project budget and fund it like a critical project. That is the way most governments operate. Its simple for voters to see behind the false mask of the pro-tax marketing program and hence its so easy to vote NO to eliminate this unnecessary tax and this proposed frivolous, huge expenditure.Deborah Lilley MurdockEditor: Government ofcials from the halls of Washington to the hallowed ofces in Murdock and Sarasota just cannot seem to grasp the simplest of concepts. When it comes to our tax dollars, we dont trust them to spend them wisely. And we do not appreciate the shell games, saying we need money for things that smart money management should cover. Even worse is the fact that they dont seem to know a thing about the average American taxpayer. Government is the only place where money can be received without performing a task or service to get it. Government says they need money and they take it from us. In the rest of society, that is theft.Jennie Veary EnglewoodEditor: The American voters got exactly what they voted for. They elected a fast-talking, lying lawyer who associated with terrorist Bill Ayers, sat in a church pew for several years where the reverend openly sold CDs shouting America was damned, whose wife openly stated on TV that for the rst time in her adult life she was proud to be an American. Whose economic experience does not even include running a lemonade stand, whose main purpose in the State Senate was voting present. Without any economic experience, how does anyone hope to ne tune our national economy? He cannot bring himself to call any Muslim a terrorist. He duped my wife also. I would hope and pray that in future elections the American voters will wake up to reality and elect a businessman with a successful background with a track record on economic experience as our economy is very important to our people, or a state gover nor who will have a recorded experience in economics and running a government. The presidency is no place for onthe-job training. We should elect a politician who can brag about what they have done before stating what they propose to do.William Nurse North PortObamacares birthday not celebrated hereOUR POSITION: Florida sits on the sidelines, its leaders turning their backs on Medicaid expansion, as other states which opted in are celebrating the health and nancial benets of enrollment.Its been one year since the feder al government stumbled out of the gate enrolling citizens under the Affordable Care Act, known to many as Obamacare. The initial computer glitches were reported with glee by opponents of the health care plan. But, after those challenges were met, the program has proven to make a real difference in states that elected to expand Medicaid for their under-insured or uninsured. Unfortunately, Florida was not one of those states. As our Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott sit determined not to accept billions of dollars in federal aid for our working poor and unemployed, other states are reaping the benets. On the Oct. 1 anniversary of the ACAs birth, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Kaiser Family Foundation released their ndings on the impact of Obamacare, as outlined by writer Jonathan Cohn. They concurred that: In states that took advantage of the new Medicaid eligibility levels, uninsured admissions to hospitals had fallen by 30 percent. Florida ranks ahead of only Texas and Nevada for having the highest rate of uninsured residents about 20 percent in 2013. Polls show that since Obamacare debuted a year ago, 10-12 million more Americans have health insurance. People who have insurance under the ACA are less likely to experience nancial distress and much more likely to report better mental health, according to a study in Oregon. Despite reports of insurers raising premiums to provide more benets and coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, most people found the cost of insurance was cheaper. Tax credits offset much of the increases for most people especially those who were older or in poor health, thus greater risks. According to the Kaiser Foundation, 46 percent reported lower rates while 39 percent saw their premiums rise. About 15 percent reported no change in costs. Most every state participating in ACA expected an even higher enrollment in 2015. California is the exception and that state has the highest enrollment numbers now. While health care costs in the U.S. have skyrocketed in the past 20 years, the 20-year projection by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services show a much slower rise in rates projected to be only 1.1 percent between 2012 and 2023. The cost of Obamacare is one of the easiest targets for its opponents. But, according to the Congressional Budget Ofce, for every dollar in new spending, there has been at least one dollar in new revenue or spending cuts. According to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, the total bill for federal health care programs will be lower than predicted when the ACA became law. The popular cry by lawmakers in the most conservative states such as South Carolina and Florida, about the government going bankrupt because of Medicaid expansion, will prove to be nothing more than political hyperbole. While Floridians especially the elderly, those already sick and the unemployed struggle to nd insurance or give up and take advantage of hospital emergency rooms for treatment, those in other states are secure with their health care. And the billions of dollars that would have been headed our way, are being spent in other states. We fail to understand why our lawmakers continue to stubbornly cling to a stance on Medicaid expansion that is being proven short-sighted and just plain wrong. As a nal note, here is an example of the kinds of questionable shenanigans that the three NQs want to eliminate. If history repeats, (once again), about two to three months after the election, one of the new members will suddenly resign. An outgoing, term-limited member will then be appointed to that vacancy. Goldstein and two other individuals have been doing this for the last 10-plus years. Whats so important to these three individuals that they need to bypass the intent of the bylaws to make sure that they serve as virtual permanent BOD members?Bob Hull Punta GordaLets see what we can learn from the Tampa International Airports Noise Mitigation Program.

The Sun /Thursday, October 2, 2014 E/N/C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT With the election about a month away, were all getting our ll of political ads, newspaper articles, direct mail pieces and poll results on various candidates running for ofce. There are also several constitutional amendments on the November ballot. There are various ways the Florida Constitution can be amended. Two of the most common are through citizens initiatives or through legislatively introduced amendments. In both cases, the amendments must receive 60 percent of the votes in an election in order to change our constitution. The rst two amendments on Novembers ballot were placed there through the hard work of citizens who jumped through the costly and labor-intensive hurdles set up to make changing the Constitution difcult. Its important for voters to understand the amendments and to be prepared to vote on them prior to voting. The language can be lengthy and complex so its best to do a little homework. Allow me to make the case for a yes vote on the proposed Water and Land Conservation amendment, which appears as Amendment 1. Amendment 1 would set aside 33 percent of an existing tax and dedicate those dollars to be used for conservation pur poses only. This would include land acquisition and management, ensur ing a safe and adequate supply of drinking water, restoring the Everglades, protecting our springs, lakes, rivers and coast al waters, providing outdoor recreational activities and preserving our natural areas and wildlife habitat. Many come to Florida to visit our beautiful beaches, to sh in our lakes, rivers and coastal areas, and to enjoy our 170 or so state parks and other public lands. Tourism is one of our most important industries and our nature-based resources play a major role in attracting visitors as well as revenues and jobs. Our agricultural industry relies on a plentiful supply of water to grow crops and raise livestock. Collecting water during wet weather for use during times of drought is another potential use of these funds. And lets be clear this is an existing tax, not a new tax or an increase in an existing tax. The documentary stamp tax is paid when real estate is sold. As the housing market improves, more revenue is generated, with a third of this one revenue source dedicated to conservation. How much could this be? Estimates say this would generate $10 billion over 20 years or roughly $500 million a year. Of course, that would uctuate with the strength of the housing market, a scally responsible way to fund. Lets put these numbers in perspective. First, this years state budget was more than $77 billion. Isnt the protection of our natural resources worth at least $500 million, which is less than one percent of the total budget? Second, under cur rent law the Legislature is supposed to be funding the Florida Forever program at $300 million and the Water Sustainability Act at $100 million annually but has failed to do so. Florida Forever was fully funded over the eight years under Gov. Jeb Bush and for the rst two years under Gov. Charlie Crist. When the recession hit, every major budget area was cut, but as the economy improved and revenues grew, funding for environmental programs was not restored. Our state parks have $400 million in land management needs and have only received $15 million or so for each of the last few years. Everglades restoration and springs protection will take billions of dollars over the next 20 years. Citizens who had been patient during the lean times became fearful that the funding might remain at anemic levels, putting our resources at great risk. They collected hundreds of thousands of signatures, paid to have them verified, defended the amendment language before the Florida Supreme Court and are now leading the effort to get 60 percent of the vote required to change the Constitution. For those who argue this doesnt belong in the Constitution, I ask, if not this, what? What could be more vital to our very survival than water? And if the Legislature wont fund the very programs it enacted at the levels it specied, then this might be the only way to ensure a steady but exible funding level that rises and falls with the economy. Surely our quality of life is worth one percent of our state budget. A yes vote on Amendment 1 benets all Floridians. Paula Dockery is a syndicated columnist who served in the Florida Legislature for 16 years as a Republican from Lakeland. Readers may reach her at PBDockery@ The case for yes on Amendment 1 Paula Dockery Wholl be the next attorney gener al? Washingtons favorite parlor game is lling Cabinet vacancies; I like playing as much as the next pundit. (Keep reading!) Still, the more telling question is: Why are we playing this game at all? Why wasnt the White House, which knew for months that Holder was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holders foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this depar ture more intelligently rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate. Once again, this being baseball playoff season, cant anybody here play this game? After six years, apparently not. These questions matter not because of what they tell us about the Holder situation but because of what they say about President Obama and the operation he oversees. For a year, the president knew that Holder wanted out. But, I am told, Obama thought he could convince the attorney general to stay. Holder is one of the few Cabinet secretaries whom the president wants to spend time with. Insularity combined with arrogance bred a belief that the brewing problem of Holders departure would not materialize. But it did, and with exquisitely bad timing. The Senate has left town. A lame-duck Congress could act, but, especially if the election goes in the dismal direction it seems to be heading for Democrats, the presidents leeway is consider ably constrained. Adding to the poor timing is the poor planning. Failing to have a choice in place adds to the prospect that conr mation will have to await the next, likely more hostile Congress. And trouble multiplies in a vacuum. Every constituency starts to angle for its preference, demographic or ideological. We need another African-American attorney general. Its time for the rst openly gay attorney general. Holder was too liberal. Holder wasnt liberal enough on issues such as domestic surveillance and press freedom. This is the lesson of lling a Supreme Court vacancy: Dont let it fester. But while it festers, lets play. This is a game best conducted by process of elimination. The nominee has to be someone whos willing to take the job for two years, and most likely a politically unpleasant two years. So a superstar choice such as Merrick Garland, chief judge of the federal appeals court here, who might have been convinced to give up lifetime tenure a year or two ago, isnt apt to do so now for such a short stint. It has to be someone the president knows and feels comfortable with. Thus, choices such as various former and current U.S. attorneys Preet Bharara and Loretta Lynch in New York, Jenny Durkan in Seattle, Neil MacBride in Virginia probably dont pass the hes my guy (or woman) test. But it should also be someone who is not so close to the president as to raise (legitimate) concerns about cronyism. A choice such as former White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler would encounter criticism that she is too cozy with the president to be the nations top law enforcement ofcer. This is no dis on Ruemmler, who is smart and capable. Yet, as the example of Alberto Gonzales demonstrated, having the presidents top lawyer move into the attorney general job is a bad idea. Obama may be sorely tempted for this president in particular, there is a big premium on comfort in the top jobs. But a Ruemmler nomination would turn conrmation hearings into a quest for documents and an argument over executive privilege. Shed probably be conrmed, but this doesnt seem a smart way to spend dwindling political capital. Previous Senate conr mation is a plus. Future political aspirations are a minus for getting through the Senate why would Republicans want to credential the opposition? So much for Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and California Attorney General Kamala Harris. All of which points to Solicitor General Donald Verrilli as the logical, if not inevitable, choice. Close enough to be trusted; not too close to be questioned. Independent stature the solicitor general, like the attorney general, is at a remove from politics. He was con rmed by 72 (including Republican leader Mitch McConnell) to 16. The next attorney general wont be a crusader. Instead, he or she will spend time fending off congressional investigations and enduring hearings. The instinct of an embattled president is to name a loyalist. Ironically, the best protection may come from choosing a nominee with enough independence to do that job effectively. Ruth Marcus is a Washington Post columnist. Readers may reach her at ruthmarcus@ In Holders exit, a vacuum Ruth Marcus Its Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and with the scandals in the NFL, the nation is nally becoming aware of this epidemic. But one aspect of the issue needs more awareness, and thats the role guns play in turning this violence lethal. The statistics are horrifyingly real. From 2001 to 2012, the number of women murdered nationwide by intimate partners using guns (6,410) exceed ed the number of U.S. troops killed in action in the Iraq and Afghan wars combined. Every day in our country, ve women are murdered by gunre. Anemic gun laws at both the state and federal levels are allowing women to be killed in appalling numbers, according to a recent study by the Center for American Progress entitled Women Under the Gun. The study conrms that violence against women is generally a crime of intimacy. In 65 percent of cases, women knew their attackers. And a staggering proportion of violence against women is fatal, with guns being a key factor in those deaths. As the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence recognizes, if an abuser owns a rearm, an abused woman is ve times more likely to be killed. Put simply, the presence of guns dramatically increases the probability of death in incidents involving domestic violence. We must do something about this now. Members of Congress should pass an amended version of the Domestic Violence Criminal Disarmament Act, introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives last year. In its current form, the bill would give state and local law enforcement the authority to seize rearms or ammunition when responding to domestic violence situations where there is probable cause to believe such rearms have been or are likely to be used to threaten, harass, menace or harm the victim. While law enforcement should be granted this author ity, it should ultimately be the victim who decides if weapons ought to be seized. It is time that we as a nation recognize the clear intersection of intimate partner violence and gun possession. We must enact laws on the state and federal levels that protect women where they live. Guns are killing women in huge numbers in their homes, where they should be most secure, not most in danger. Our lawmakers urgently need to respond to this domestic tragedy. K.

Our Town Page 10 E/N/C The Sun /Thursday, October 2, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT When Pat Stanley used to visit her mother at North Port Pines, she noticed many residents who had no one to come and see them. So about a year ago, she helped start a group at her church, Murdock Baptist, designed to visit Pines residents who might be lonely. Its part of (Murdock Baptists) local community missions, Stanley said of the Forget-Me-Not Outreach program. Members of the program there are about 16 or 17 visit Pines residents year-round. They also recently began visiting residents at the Douglas T. Jacobson State Veterans Home in Port Charlotte. We didnt want it to just be a Christmas thing. Its a year-round ministry, said Stanley, adding that many of the church members who are part of the program have become good friends with the seniors they have adopted. Gods loved us, and we just want to share that with them. On Wednesday, North Port Pines held a luncheon to thank members of Murdock Baptist Church who have taken the time to adopt seniors living at the assisted-living facility. Murdock Baptist member Helen Phillips, who lives in North Port, has been visiting Pines resident Mary Sedlak since the program began. This is a really wonderful place, Phillips said. When it gets to be my time, I wouldnt mind living here. We talk about every thing, Sedlak said. Betty Kiley, who adopted North Port Pines resident Val Bost, brought Bost a corsage of white roses and small purple owers Wednesday that just happened to match the purple shirt Bost was wearing. Kiley said they didnt plan it ahead of time. I just know that her favorite color is purple, Kiley said. North Port Pines administrator Pauline Gore said shes grateful to the Murdock Baptist Church family for extending their friendship to Pines residents. It takes a special person to extend themselves like that. Its not common, Gore said. Stanley, whose mother has since passed away, said there is no magical matching process, but she makes the pairings when Gore gives her the name of a senior who needs someone. Volunteers then receive a short orientation before they begin visiting.Email: annek@sun-herald.comMurdock Baptist adopts Pines residentsBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER About 22 gathered for a luncheon at North Port Pines Wednesday to thank volunteers from Murdock Baptist Church who have adopted Pines residents.

ENGLEWOOD When an Indiana game warden heard George Dykhuizen was moving to Florida, the game warden told him, Florida has absolutely nothing, absolutely nothing. Dykhuizen, 85, has now lived in Grove City for 25 years and could show that game warden the subtleties of Florida wildlife. I would show him the amazing amount of wildflowers and wildlife here, he said. These are things that people drive right by or walk right by but dont really understand or appreciate. Dykhuizen is one of the trained volunteers who are guide tours at Cedar Point Environmental Park in Englewood. The tours will include Cedar Point, Oyster Creek, Buck Creek and the Tippecanoe preserves I and II. The tours start again Oct. 11. Why go on a guided nature tour? Dykhuizen said, Exercise, plus. You just go out and exercise, thats admirable. But if you walk Oyster Creek paths, you will walk by 100 plants and flowers, each of which will have a story to tell and youre not going to know about it. Dyhuizen leads tours at Oyster Creek. When you come to Florida, everythings different, he said. The change of seasons, particularly this time of year, are more subtle. Dykhuizen said, Anybody without a (nature-related) background can walk through these trails and walk right on by stuff and not know what they are seeing. Dykhuizen talks about rosary peas, unusual lichens and other plant life that can be found in Oyster Creek. He also can share interesting facts about common animals like opossums and armadillos that many people might not know. I usually like to tell an anecdote or two, Dykhuizen said. He tells the story of how Henry Ford was paying top dollar for horse hair to stuff the cushions of his automobiles. On a visit to Southwest Florida, Ford got the idea to stuff the cushions with Spanish moss, which hung from trees and was free. Ford sent truck loads back to Detroit. But after a while, people started to complain that they were getting itchy, Dykhuizen said. There were these red spiders or mites coming out of the Spanish moss, so he had to stop using it. He also likes to share on his tours jellies, teas and other snacks made from local wild flowers and plants. Dykhuizen retired as a General Electric advertising manager, but he said hes always had a love of nature, even as a boy growing up in southern New Jersey. Besides guiding nature tours, hes a master gardener. In Indiana, he was a trapper and still enjoys trapping. Hes been leading Cedar Point tours for five years. Jack Lyons and other Cedar Point volunteer guides shared their knowledge with Dykhuizen, like he now shares it with those who join him on walks.

Cedar Point tours start Oct. 11.ENGLEWOOD One day a year, Buchan Airport becomes the most happening place in Englewood to eat quiche and see vintage airplanes. In its eighth year, the annual Buchan Airport Fly-in Breakfast attracts pilots some from 100 miles away. They come for a pastry and camaraderie. This years y-in is planned for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Oct. 11 at Buchan Airport, on the north end of Old Englewood Road. Admission is free. There is free parking with donations accepted. Last seasons caterer, Cafe Serenity, will return, offering a choice of two quiche dishes prepared and served by the owners. The menu includes pastry, orange juice and coffee for $6. A portion of the proceeds are set aside for a scholarship fund for Lemon Bay or Venice high schools, or to a Charlotte Technical Center student going into the aviation eld. Last years recipient, Jessica Lown, 18, a Lemon Bay High School graduate, is currently studying at EmbryRiddle Aeronautical University. The committee gave Lown $500 toward her college goals. Last year there were about 40 planes on display, said Don Musilli, board member of the Buchan Fly-in Breakfast committee. There were about 1,500 spectators. The committee ran out of breakfast items by 9:30. The planned for about 500 or 600 people and there were so many more. It was a great problem to run out of food. There will be a variety of airplanes including biplane, helicopter, private and experimental aircraft. Spectators are allowed to go out on the tarmac and check out the planes, he said. Its a great event for children, especially those who may have never seen an aircraft up close and personal. Adults who enjoy airplanes will really like to see the variety on display. People can also meet the pilots and ask questions. We have had some pilots come from as far as 100 miles away. Its really not that far when you are ying in. Musilli said if the weather is good, the committee expects a great turnout. If its windy there will be fewer planes, he said. Last year the weather was great and a lot of people showed up. There will be numer ous exhibitors including radio-controlled planes, aviation books and parts, the Lemon Bay Historical Society, The Arts Alliance of Lemon Bay, two Civil Air Patrol wings, Elsie Quirk Library representatives and amateur Ham Radio operators. There will be a rafe of donated prizes awarded including jewelry, golf for four at Myakka Pines Golf Club and gift certicates from Outback, Gulf View Grill, and Beef O Bradys.

President Barack Obama concluded new leadership of that agency was required, said spokesman Josh Earnest. High-ranking lawmakers from both parties had urged her to step down after her poorly received testimony to Congress a day earlier and revelation of yet another security problem: Obama had shared an elevator in Atlanta last month with an armed guard who was not authorized to be around him. That appeared to be the last straw that crumbled trust in her leadership in the White House. Earnest said Obama and his staff did not learn about that breach until just before it was made public in news reports Tuesday. Today Julia Pierson, the director of the United States Secret Service, offered her resignation, and I accepted it, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement. He announced that Joseph Clancy, retired head of the agencys Presidential Protective Division, would come out of retirement to lead the Secret Service temporarily. Taking further steps to restore trust in the beleaguered agency, Johnson also outlined an independent inquiry into the agencys operations.Secret Service chief quits By EILEEN SULLIVAN and ALICIA A.

The proposal would also mean Turkey, until now reluctant to take a frontline role against Islamic State, could allow foreign forces to use its territory for cross-border incursions. But President Tayyip Erdogan said the removal of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad remained a Turkish priority and stressed Ankaras fears that U.S.-led air strikes without a broader political strategy would only prolong the instability.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Thursday, October 2, 2014 NATIONAL NEWS | NATIONUS construction spending down 0.8 percentWASHINGTON (AP) U.S. construction spending fell in August, the second decline in the past three months, with housing, non-residential and government projects all showing weakness. Construction spending dropped a seasonally adjusted 0.8 percent after a 1.2 percent increase in July, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. The July increase followed a 1.6 percent June decline. The weakness was apparent in all sectors. Housing construction declined 0.1 percent, reecting a big drop in spending on remodeling. Non-residential construction fell 1.4 percent while spending on government projects dropped 0.9 percent.Truck deals boost US auto sales in SeptemberDETROIT (AP) Big discounts on pickup trucks kept U.S. auto sales strong in September. General Motors Co. and Chrysler Group led the industry with 19-percent sales increases over last September. Toyota sales rose 2 percent, while Ford and Volkswagen were down. The pace was expected to slow from a blistering August, which was the best month for the industry in eight years. August got a boost from 2014 model year clear ance sales and Labor Day promotions. While August was fueled by incentives on midsize cars, September saw good deals on pickup trucks. The second half of the year is usually stronger for pickup sales, and stable gas prices, employment gains and higher consumer condence bodes well for automakers this year. GM and Chrysler took advantage of Ford, which has temporarily closed a truck factory to retool for its new aluminum-clad F-150. Ford cut back on discounts in order to keep more trucks in stock during the shutdown. As a result, GM said its light-duty Silverado outsold Fords F-150 for the rst month since 2011.Deep discount lures buyer for Revel casinoATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) As one Atlantic City casino after another shut down and left thousands of workers jobless, Mayor Don Guardian insisted that the meltdown that claimed four of his citys 12 casinos since January was actually the opportunity of a lifetime for savvy investors. On Wednesday, someone nally agreed. A Canadian asset management company won a bankruptcy court auction for the failed Revel casino hotel and announced plans to re-open it as a casino. Toronto-based Brookeld US Holdings LLC will pay $110 million to buy the 2-year-old casino that cost $2.4 billion to build, adding it to casinos it owns in Las Vegas and the Bahamas.Manufacturing boom coolsWASHINGTON (Bloomberg) Manufacturing cooled in September following the strongest rate of growth in three years as U.S. factories settled into a more sustainable expansion that will spur the economy. While the Institute for Supply Managements index dropped to 56.6 from 59 in August, the gauges average over the past three months was the highest since early 2011, gures from the Tempe, Ariz.-based group showed Wednesday. The median forecast in a Bloomberg survey of 84 economists called for a decline to 58.5.Accused White House intruder pleads not guiltyWASHINGTON (MCT) The Iraq war veteran accused of running into the White House with a knife on Sept. 19 pleaded not guilty Wednesday to three criminal charges in a case that exposed security lapses in the Secret Service.

(AP) California will become the first state that allows family members to ask a judge to remove firearms from a relative who appears to pose a threat, under legislation Gov. Jerry Brown said Tuesday he had signed. The bill was proposed by several Democrats and responds to a deadly rampage in May near the University of California, Santa Barbara. Relatives of the victims and other supporters of the bill said the parents of 22-year-old Elliot Rodger were thwarted in their attempts to seek help for their troubled son before the rampage. Supporters had said such a measure could have prevented the attacks, winning out over critics who said it would erode gun rights. If both of these laws had been in place on May 23, things could have been very differ ent, Rodgers father, Peter Rodger, said in a statement Tuesday night. California, today, is a safer state because of this legislation. Lets hope other states follow. CANADENSIS, Pa. (AP) For a region so dependent on tourism, the headline could scarcely be worse: A survivalist charged with ambushing a Pennsylvania State Police barracks eludes hundreds of law enforcement ofcials pursuing him in the woods. Yet tourism ofcials in the Pocono Mountains say that while visitors are calling to ask about the manhunt for Eric Frein now in its third week very few of them are canceling their hotel and outing reservations during one of the busiest times of the year. They think its off limits, its shut down, said Elizabeth Richardson at the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau. But its not. All of the hotels are open. All of the resorts are open. Thats because, while police are narrowly concentrating their search on a heavily wooded, 5-square-mile area around the village of Canadensis, the Poconos region of northeastern Pennsylvania encompasses 2,400 square miles. For most of the resorts, restaurants and attractions that rely on day-trippers and over night guests from New Jersey, New York and the Philadelphia area, its largely business as usual, Richardson said. Brilliant foliage and temperate weather are primary attractions this time of year in the Poconos, where tourism is the No. 1 industry at $3 billion annually. While most businesses that cater to tourists seem to be unaffected by the lengthy manhunt, its a different story in the tiny villages that make up Barrett Township, where Frein is believed to be hiding in the woods around his parents house. From the 10-room Brookview Manor Inn to Capri Pizza, business is down as tourists avoid the area and locals stay home. The last busy night at Capri was Friday, Sept. 12 the night that police say Frein, 31, opened re outside the Blooming Grove state police bar racks, killing Cpl. Bryon Dickson and wounding a second trooper. This has been catastrophic, said Joe Kastrati, surveying his empty pizza shop at dinnertime. He hastened to add his loss doesnt compare to the loss suffered by Dicksons family. The Capri is collateral damage, he said. At Brookview, a Victorian inn less than a mile from the search zone, October is typically one of the two busiest months of the year. But room reservations have dropped by perhaps 50 percent, with many guests calling to cancel because theyre afraid, said co-owner Martin Horowitz. Nearby, Camp Canadensis lost a booking as Lehigh University decided to move a retreat for student leaders out of the area. I think it was the right call, said grad student Leah Paulson, 22, saying her parents would have freaked out if she were near the manhunt. Meanwhile, deer hunters gearing up for this weekends opening of archery season will nd some areas off limits. The Pennsylvania Game Commission on Wednesday banned hunting and trapping in seven townships after police announced they had found two pipe bombs they say were left by Frein.Hunting banned, tourism down in manhunt zone AP PHOTOA Pennsylvania State Police sergeant stands guard on a small bridge along Snow Hill Road in Price Township, Pa., Tuesday as the search for suspected killer Eric Frein carries on for the 18th day. (The Washington Post) The giant basin on the near side of the moon might not be the result of a run-in with a massive asteroid, contrary to what some scientists believed. Instead, this blemish on the lunar surface nearly as wide across as the United States could have been formed by ancient magma ows. The Oceanus Procellarum region of the moon has fascinated humanity from the beginning: The so-called ocean of storms forms a cheek of the man in the moon (or, in Chinese culture, the hindquarters of the moon rabbit). Like other dark spots on the moon (called lunar maria), Oceanus Procellarum was once thought by astronomers to be an actual body of water. But the moon turned out to contain neither water nor cheese, and a modern theory was formed: These dark spots are the result of dried lava ow. But Oceanus Procellarum, the largest of the moons such spots, seemed to exist within a large crater. The prevailing theory was that this sizeable smudge was sitting in an impact crater one of the scars left by asteroid impacts on the moon. According to research published Wednesday in Nature, the formation of this lunar geography might not have been quite so smashing. New data suggests that rifts in the moons crust formed a sort of magma irrigation system, ooding a lunar valley with lava around 4 billion years ago. When that lava solidied, it formed dark rock that we can see from Earth. Previous studies were missing vital data, according to study coauthor and MIT professor of geophysics and vice president for research Maria Zuber. When Zuber and her colleagues used data from NASAs GRAIL mission two probes that orbited the moon in 2012 to get images of what was going on beneath the surface of the moon, they found that the crater supposedly sitting under Oceanus Procellarum wasnt the right shape for an asteroid impact. Its remarkably rectangular in shape, Zuber said, not circular. Previous studies had rounded out the cor ners of the valley where data were missing, according to Zuber. When you have the full picture, its clearly a rectangle, she said. The angles seen in the edges of this valley are consistent with rift valleys on Earth. Zuber and her colleagues believe that as the moon was cooling in the early days of its development, a rogue plume of magma shot up in this region. Because the lava made this area so much hotter than the mostly-cooled rock around it, the surface cracked and shrank away from the cool surrounding crust. Eventually, more lava seeped out of this rectangular frame of rifts and lled the valley, forming Oceanus Procellarum. Zuber and her colleagues arent sure how that disruptive magma plume rose to the surface in the rst place. Some will probably still speculate that an aster oid impact heated the surface of the moon and made that plume rise, she said, but theres no direct evidence of that. For now, Zuber said, this study is basic but important. Its a question of understanding the evolution of our moon, and trying to understand our place in nature, she said. For anyone whos ever looked up at the moon and wondered why it has this pattern on its surface now we have an answer.Where did man in the moon face come from? FILE PHOTOContrary to old beliefs that the iconic face on the moon was formed by an asteroid collision, some scientists are saying that the dark spots were formed by lava ows. (Washington Post) New York Citys Central Park is as much of a melting pot as the rest of the city even down at the microbial level. According to a study published Wednesday in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, there are more than 100,000 species of bacteria living in the parks soil and most of them are totally new to science. The coolest thing about this study is that the results arent as striking as they sound: In fact, Central Parks stunning microbial diversity is pretty much on par with the rest of the world. Researchers searched soil samples pulled from around the park and found more than 120,000 species of bacteria. They also found 1,659 archaea (organisms similar to bacteria) and 43,429 species of multicellular microorganisms such as plants, fungi and teenytiny critters. When they compared the DNA of these or ganisms to databases of known species, they found that more than 80 percent of them were new. And of those that matched organisms in the database, its likely that many were just closely related to existing species, and actually represented newly discovered cousins. We dont know any thing about these new microbes yet, including whether theyre native to New York or came in on the feet of tourists and migrating geese, or whether theyre good or bad for the health of the soil and the city. But we do know one thing: Their uniqueness isnt actually that unique. Similar levels of biodiversity are seen all over the world, the researchers report. And the only part of the planet that didnt have some overlapping species with Central Park was in Antarctica. If you want to find unique diversity and if you want to find a wide range of different below-ground organisms, you dont have to travel around the world, Noah Fierer, an associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at CU-Boulder and corresponding author of the study, said in a statement.You can walk across Central Park. Microbes dont have the same climate-based restrictions as visible plants and animals, Fierer said they care more about soil acidity and carbon content than they do about humidity or heat.Undiscovered microbes lurk in dirt v fi -i


The Sun /Thursday, October 2, 2014 WIRE Page 3 STATE NEWS TALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) A high-stakes legal battle about the constitutionality of the states congressional districts should be fast-tracked to the Florida Supreme Court, a divided appeals court ruled Wednesday. Under the ruling, the 1st District Court of Appeal would not take up a challenge to districts redrawn in August by the Legislature and to other decisions by a circuit judge. Instead, the case would go directly to the Supreme Court a relatively unusual move known as certification of the case to the higher court. A panel of the appeals court, in a 2-1 decision, agreed on the certication issue with voting-rights groups that have waged a drawn-out legal battle about whether congressional district lines were drawn in 2012 and redrawn this year to favor Republicans. While the redrawn districts would not take effect until the 2016 elections, the majority of the appeals court pointed to the lengthy history of the case in deciding to pass it along to the Supreme Court. In this case, any doubts about the need for immediate review by the Supreme Court should be resolved in favor of certication, said the opinion, written by Judge Philip Padovano and joined by Judge Simone Marstiller. But in a dissent, Judge Scott Makar disputed the need to quickly send the case to the Supreme Court because the new districts wont take effect until 2016. Certication amounts to a 9-1-1 call to the Florida Supreme Court: Youre needed now! Makar wrote. That call is not justied in this case; ample time existing for the normal appellate process to be followed over the next two years. This (appeals) court can handle the matter expeditiously, leaving more than adequate time for Supreme Court review, if it deems it necessary. Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis this summer tossed out congressional districts drawn by the Legislature in 2012, ruling that the districts violated the anti-gerrymandering Fair Districts constitutional amendments approved by voters in 2010. Lewis singled out districts held by incumbent U.S. Reps. Corrine Brown and Daniel Webster. Lawmakers met in August for a special session to redraw the map. Lewis upheld the revised districts, prompting an appeal from plaintiffs in the case, which include the League of Women Voters of Florida, Common Cause and individual voters. In a notice of appeal led with the 1st District Court of Appeal, the plaintiffs said they would challenge Lewis ruling that upheld the redrawn map. But they also indicated the appeal would involve parts of Lewis earlier ruling that struck down the 2012 map. The Supreme Court is already grappling with one appeal that is an offshoot of the redistricting case. That appeal deals with whether records of Republican consultant Pat Bainter and his rm, Gainesville-based Data Targeting, Inc., should have been used in the redistricting case in circuit court.Redistricting fight speeding to Supreme Court | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATEWaldo votes to disband its police forceWALDO (AP) The City Council of a tiny north Florida town known as one of the nations worst speed traps has voted to disband its small police force.

The Bradenton Herald reported that Rick Snyder has collected the loose coins over 10 years. On Tuesday, volunteers from the Gulf Shore Animal League went to his home to help him gather 2,500 pounds of coins. Gulf Shores main focus is taking care of cats. Snyder said he feels strongly about the felines. In addition to taking care of feral cats, he owns ve cats personally and said hes found homes for about 100 cats, many of them with tenants in the 48 units in Burgundy Condominiums that he owns. People do avoid me now, if they see me coming, Snyder said. Snyder collected change at car washes and dug coins out of vacuums and vending machines during his daily walks to care for feral cats in the area. For the past 10 years, hes gone out around 4:30 a.m. every day. Snyder has found an average of $5.60 in change per day. He said he walks between 45 and 48 miles per week. Snyder said he also uses those trips to collect towels that have been thrown away, wash them and donate them, and he picks up plastic bottles out of the trash to take them home and recycle them.

Page 4 WIRE The Sun /Thursday, October 2, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE ALMANAC Today is Thursday, Oct. 2, the 275th day of 2014. There are 90 days left in the year. Today in history On Oct. 2, 1944, German troops crushed the two-month-old Warsaw Uprising, during which a quarter of a million people were killed. On this dateIn 1835, the first battle of the Texas Revolution took place as American settlers fought Mexican soldiers near the Guada lupe River; the Mexicans ended up withdrawing. In 1889, the first International Conference of American States convened in Washington, D.C. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson suffered a serious stroke at the White House that left him paralyzed on his left side. In 1950, the comic strip Peanuts, created by Charles M. Schulz, was syndicated to seven newspapers. In 1967, Thurgood Marshall was sworn as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court as the court opened its new term. In 1970, one of two chartered twin-engine planes flying the Wichita State University football team to Utah crashed into a mountain near Silver Plume, Colo., killing 31 of the 40 people on board. In 1984, Richard W. Miller became the first FBI agent to be arrested and charged with espi onage. (Miller was tried three times; he was sentenced to 20 years in prison, but was released after nine years.) In 1996, an AeroPeru Boeing 757 crashed into the Pacific Ocean, killing all 61 passengers and nine crew members on board. In 2002, the Washington, D.C.-area sniper attacks began, setting off a frantic manhunt lasting three weeks. (John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo were finally arrested for 10 killings and three woundings; Muhammad was executed in 2009; Malvo was sentenced to life in prison.) Todays birthdays Retired MLB All-Star Maury Wills is 82. Movie critic Rex Reed is 76. Singer-songwriter Don McLean is 69. Photogra pher Annie Leibovitz is 65. Rock musician Mike Rutherford (Genesis, Mike & the Mechanics) is 64. Singer-actor Sting is 63. Actress Lorraine Bracco is 60. Country musician Greg Jennings (Restless Heart) is 60.

LORETTO, Pa. (AP) Moooove over, Ben Roethlisberger. Theres a new No. 7 in western Pennsylvania. The folks at Vale Wood Farms in Loretto have named a calf Baby Ben after the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback because the cow has a marking that looks like a No. 7 on its head. The farm has posted the calfs picture on its Facebook page, and WJAC-TV visited the farm about 70 miles east of Pittsburgh to see what all the fuss is about. Carissa Itle-Westrick, the director of business development for the family-owned food-andgrocery farm, is hoping Roethlisberger wont mind. She says, Baby Ben is awfully cute, so hopefully Big Ben wont mind sharing his namesake. The farm plans to display the calf when it opens its pumpkin patch for business next month.ODD NEWS Calf with on its head named for Steelers Ben someone on a nearby porch. Based on the video, I have enough concerns to call for an internal investigation, DeLeo said. We will conduct a thorough investigation into this incident. We want to be transparent with the community by sharing what we can at this point, including the video. According to police, the officers were responding to recent complaints from citizens about drug deals in the neighborhood located just a few blocks west of the governors mansion. The woman, Viola Young, approached one of the police cars parked on the narrow street to inquire about one of the people two women and a man who had been arrested. The officer standing outside the squad car advised the woman to stay back. Police said thats when Officer Terry Mahan approached Young and attempted to take her into custody. In the video, Young appears to be walking away when the officer uses his stun gun, striking her in the back. She falls face-first to the ground. Officers surrounded her and eventually helped her to her feet and walked her to a squad car, the video shows. Police didnt release the name of the person who shot the video, but he can be heard saying on the video: done tased a lady for nothing. Police said Young was medically cleared by paramedics and taken to the Leon County Jail. She was charged with resisting and obstructing an officer without violence, a first-degree misdemeanor. In his police report, Mahan said that after he told people to stay back she responded by yelling, I just want to know what is going on. Mahan said Young refused to leave and he told her she was under arrests. He said she yanked away from him when he attempted to grab her arm. When reached by phone on Wednesday, Young said she has been advised by her attorney to not discuss the incident. The incident comes at a time when Tallahassee police have come under scrutiny. Last month, the city agreed to pay $475,000 to settle a case over the arrest of a woman who ended up with a broken bone in her face after an altercation with officers. Video from last years arrest of Christina West showed officers slamming her into a police car before throwing her to the ground. West can be heard screaming in the video. A grand jury decided against charging the officers in that incident but ripped Tallahassee police for how they handled the arrest.STUNFROM PAGE 1 advantage of it. The new NATO chief said the alliance would come to Turkeys aid if it was attacked, in an apparent reference to the border crisis. The Islamic State advance to within sight of the Turkish army on the border has piled pressure on the NATO member to play a greater role in the U.S.-led military coalition carrying out air strikes against the insurgents in Syria and Iraq. The militants are encroaching on the tomb of Suleyman Shah, grandfather of the Ottoman Empires founder, which lies in northern Syria but which Ankara considers sovereign territory. It has made clear it will defend the mausoleum.Black smokeA column of black smoke rose from the southeastern side of Kobani, a predominantly Kurdish border town under siege by Islamic State for more than two weeks, as jets roared overhead, a Reuters correspondent on the Turkish side said. (They) hit a village that is four to ve kilometers (two to three miles) southeast of Kobani and we heard they destroyed one (Islamic State) tank, Parwer Mohammed Ali, a translator with the Kurdish PYD group, told Reuters by telephone from Kobani, known as Ayn al-Arab in Arabic. The United States has been carrying out strikes in Iraq against the militant group since July and in Syria since last week with the help of Arab allies. Britain and France have also struck Islamic State targets in Iraq. Using mostly nighttime strikes, it aims to damage and destroy the bases and forces of the al Qaeda offshoot which has captured large areas of both countries. Turkey, which hosts a U.S. air base at its southern town of Incirlik, has so far not been militarily involved. Britain said on Wednesday that it had conducted air strikes overnight on Islamic State ghters west of Baghdad, attacking an armed pickup truck and a transport vehicle. French President Francois Hollande meanwhile said France would boost its military commitment to the ght against the militants. The Syrian conict is now in its fourth year and has killed more than 191,000 people. On Wednesday twin suicide bombs outside a school in the government-controlled city of Homs killed at least 39 civilians, most of them children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the war. Footage on Syrias state news website SANA showed young children in blue school uniforms running away from a blast scene. Blood and body parts lay on the road and cars burned.Fluid frontlineIslamic State has taken control of 325 of 354 villages around Kobani, the Observatory said. It said seven men and three women were beheaded by the Islamists in its campaign to frighten residents resisting its advance. Theyre killing us on the Turkish border, that makes us very angry. Theres no humanity from Turkey, no humanity from Europe or anywhere else in the world, said Maslum Bergadan, who fled to Turkey and said two of his brothers had been captured by Islamic State fighters. Turkey shares a 750-mile border with Iraq and Syria and is already struggling with 1.5 million refugees from the Syrian war alone. It deployed tanks and armored vehicles in the hills overlooking Kobani this week as ghting intensied. But it fears that the air strikes could strengthen Assad and bolster Kurdish militants allied to Kurds in Turkey who have fought for three decades for greater autonomy.TURKEYFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOSyrian refugees from Kobani rest after arriving at the TurkeySyria border crossing of Murstpinar near Suruc, Turkey, late Wednesday. Emergency Physicians planned to alert its members as well. The patient explained to a nurse Thursday that he was visiting the U.S. from Africa, but that information was not widely shared, said Dr. Mark Lester, who works for the hospitals parent company. Regretfully, that information was not fully communicated throughout the medical team, Lester said. Instead, the man was diagnosed with a lowrisk infection and sent home. He was prescribed antibiotics, according to his sister, Mai Wureh, who identied her brother, Thomas Eric Duncan, as the infected man in an interview with The Associated Press. Duncan has been kept in isolation at the hospital since Sunday. He was listed in serious but stable condition. Hospital epidemiologist Dr. Edward Goodman said the patient had a fever and abdominal pain during his rst ER visit, not the riskier symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea. But the diagnosis, and the hospitals slip-up, highlighted the wider threat of Ebola, even in places far from West Africa. The scrutiny just needs to be higher now, said Dr. Rade Vukmir, a spokesman for the American College of Emergency Physicians. Ebola is believed to have sickened more than 7,100 people in West Africa, and killed more than 3,300, according to the World Health Organization. Liberia is one of the three hardest-hit countries in the epidemic, along with Sierra Leone and Guinea. In Texas, neither the ambulance crew nor the children showed any symptoms. They were restricted to home while their conditions are observed. Ebola symptoms can include fever, muscle pain, vomiting and bleeding, and can appear as long as 21 days after exposure to the virus. The disease is not contagious until symptoms begin. It spreads only by close contact with a patients bodily uids. The man left Liberia on Sept. 19, arrived the next day to visit relatives and started feeling ill four or ve days later, Frieden said. The man ew from Brussels to Dulles Airport near Washington, then boarded a ight for Dallas-Fort Worth, according to airlines. The CDC sent a team to Monrovias airport on Wednesday to make sure health ofcials there are screening passengers properly. Everyone traveling from the outbreak zone is supposed to be checked for fever or other symptoms before being allowed to leave. There were no signs of any disease when the gentleman boarded the ight, said Dr. Tom Kenyon, director of CDCs Center for Global Health. This was not a failure of the screening process at the airport. Since the man was showing no symptoms on the plane, the CDC stressed that there was no risk to fellow passengers. Nor are tests designed to detect virus in the bloodstream typically performed on people who dont yet have symptoms, because tests done too early may miss the diagnosis, Frieden said. Even in the initial phases of illness, when theyve got a fever, the most sensitive tests in the world dont detect it because theres so little virus that they have, he said. Its only as they become sicker that they become more infectious.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 That trust was shaken by a series of failures in the agencys critical job of protecting the president, including a breach Sept. 19, when a knife-carrying man climbed over the White House fence on Pennsylvania Avenue and made it deep into the executive mansion before being stopped. Republicans quickly served notice that Piersons resignation and the inquiry ordered by Johnson would not end their investigation. The Oversight Committee will continue to examine clear and serious agency failures at the Secret Service, said the panels chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif. Problems at the Secret Service pre-date Ms. Piersons tenure as direc tor, and her resignation certainly does not resolve them. Piersons permanent replacement will probably face a grueling conrmation process before Congress. In an interview with Bloomberg News after her resignation was announced, Pierson said she recognized that Congress has lost condence in my ability to run the agency. She said she met Johnson on Wednesday and after that discussion I felt this was the noble thing to do. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, a leader of the congressional inquiry, called her resignation the right thing to do, it had to happen, but there are some systemic challenges that must be addressed. Some revelations came from whistleblowers who contacted Chaffetz, and he suggested more damaging stories may emerge. Unfortunately there are more out there and well see how that goes, he said.QUITSFROM PAGE 1 JACKSONVILLE (AP) A Florida man who opened re on a carload of black teenagers in an argument over their loud thug music was convicted Wednesday of rst-degree murder. Prosecutors said Michael Dunn, who is white, was shooting to kill when he red 10 times into a sport utility vehicle outside a convenience store in November 2012. Jordan Davis, 17, was in the backseat and fatally shot. His three friends in the SUV were not hurt. Dunn told jurors that he saw Davis, of Marietta, Ga., roll down the window and ash what he believed to be a gun after the two exchanged words. Dunn said he red in self-defense. I hear .... white boy just impolite things are being said, Dunn testied. I saw the barrel of a gun. Im petried. Im in fear for my life. Police did not nd a gun in the SUV or near the convenience store. As the court clerk read the jurys verdict, Dunn showed no reaction. Davis father, Ronald Davis, broke into tears. His mother, Lucia McBath, dropped her head to her chest. After the verdict, Davis parents said justice had been done. Words cannot express our joy, but also our great sorrow, because with the verdicts of all counts being guilty for Michael Dunn, we know that Jordan has received his justice, McBath said. At Dunns rst trial in February, he was convicted of three counts of attempted second-degree murder. The jury was hung on the rst-degree murder charge, so prosecutors retried him. Prosecutors didnt seek the death penalty, which means Dunn now faces a mandatory life sentence. He is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 17. He had already faced at least 60 years for the previous convictions. Prosecutor John Guy said during opening statements that when Dunn pulled into the parking spot, the music from the SUV was blaring. He looked at his girlfriend and said I hate that thug music, Guy said.Man convicted of murder in killing over loud music KNIMTWEY on hoMgy


The Sun /Thursday, October 2, 2014 WIRE Page 5 WORLD NEWS | WORLDPalestinians: Israeli occupation must end in 2016UNITED NATIONS (AP) The Palestinians are asking the U.N. Security Council to set a deadline of November 2016 for an Israeli withdrawal from all Palestinian territory occupied since 1967 including East Jerusalem in a new push to achieve independence. The circulation of the draft resolution to council members follows Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas announcement to the U.N. General Assembly last Friday that he would ask the council to set a deadline for a pullout and dictate the ground rules for any talks with Israel. The draft resolution, obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press, would afrm the Security Councils determination to contribute to attaining a peaceful solution that ends the Israeli occupation without delay and fullls the vision of two states an independent, sovereign, democratic, contiguous and viable state of Palestine living side by side with Israel in peace and security in borders based on those before the 1967 Mideast war.2 suicide bomber attacks in Kabul kill 7, wound 21KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) Two suicide bombers in the Afghan capital targeted two buses carrying Afghan army troops on Wednesday, killing seven and wounding 21 people, police said. The bombings, for which the Taliban claimed responsibility, came a day after Afghanistan and the United States signed a security pact allowing U.S. forces to remain in the country past the end of the year to support Afghans as they take over the ght against the Taliban insurgency. The rst attacker hit a bus with Afghan National Army ofcers, killing seven and wounding 15 in west Kabul, said the citys criminal investigation police chief Mohammad Farid Afzali. The second attacker, who was also on foot, blew himself up in front of a bus in northeastern Kabul, wounding several army personnel, Afzali said.Japanese volcano eruption death toll rises to 47(LA Times) Fortyseven people are now believed to be dead following the surprise eruption of a volcano in central Japan last week. A group of hikers was near the summit of Mount Ontake when it erupted on a beautiful fall day Sept. 27, leading to one of the worst volcanic disasters in Japans history. Nagano Prefectural Police had reported about 30 people were killed in the eruption, but raised the death toll on Wednesday as search-and-rescue teams combed the summit, according to a statement cited by The Associated Press. Rescue efforts had been halted for several days after tremors were recorded around the summit. Workers are reaching the summit via helicopter and on foot. The death toll on Ontake, which has an elevation of about 10,000 feet, has sur passed the 43 killed in the Mount Unzen-Fuegendak eruption in 1991.600-year-old canoe found in New Zealand linked to Polynesian sailors(LA Times) Centuries before Captain James Cook explored the South Pacic, Polynesian seafar ers in canoes crossed vast swaths of water to colonize lonely islands from Samoa and New Zealand all the way to Hawaii. But how they managed such a feat remains something of a mystery. Now, a roughly 600-year-old canoe discovered in New Zealand may shed some light on the Polynesians sailing technology. The vessel, described in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is one of just two canoes dating back to such an early time period. A second paper in the same journal nds that shifting ancient wind patterns may have created ideal windows of opportunity for certain generations of sailing Polynesians. The preserved canoe remains were discovered in 2012 on New Zealands South Island near the Anaweka estuary, pulled from a sand dune some time after a major storm. The 19.95-foot-long section of hull is part of what the authors call a complex and robust composite canoe, carved from a single timber.Catalans pursue independence vote MADRID (Bloomberg) Regional President Artur Mas vowed Wednesday hell deliver Catalans a vote on independence despite the legal obstacles, as a Spanish minister warned that risks dragging the country back into an economic crisis. Mas told lawmakers in Barcelona his decision to withdraw an advertising campaign promoting the Nov. 9 ballot doesnt mean hes abandoning his broader ambitions for the vote, which was suspended by the Constitutional Court this week. Mas also started meeting leaders of the four-party pro-referendum coalition to work out their next move as the regional assembly named a steering committee for the vote. This will nish with the Catalan people voting and no one can prevent that, Mas said in the regional parliament. Cameron pledges tax cut if Tories electedBIRMINGHAM, England (Bloomberg) Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday pledged a 7-billion-pound ($11 billion) tax cut for people on middle incomes as well as the lowest paid if he wins next years general election, taking the ght to the Labour opposition thats leading in the polls. The premier said a re-elected Conservative government would raise the threshold for starting to pay the 40 percent rate of income tax to 50,000 pounds from about 41,900 pounds. He pledged to cut taxes for 30 million people and take 1 million out of paying income tax altogether by raising the starting point for the 20 percent basic rate, currently 10,000 pounds, to 12,500 pounds. FREEMAN RESERVE, Liberia (AP) The man with reddened eyes sat in his underwear outside his thatched home. He was weak from diarrhea, so his wife called the Ebola hotline for an ambulance. Now that it was here, though, he didnt want to go. Have you been around someone who died? Ever been around any sick people? asks Gordon Kamara, the rst responder. No sir, the sick man replies, as more than a dozen neighbors crowd around to see. More emerge on the porches of nearby homes in alarm at the site of rst responders in gloves and face masks. Mr. Kollis, your appear ance to me is not well, Kamara says in frustration. If you do not come with me now, I will not be coming back for you. Neighbors plead with Kollis to leave, saying someone who stayed in the house already had died of Ebola. Kollis refuses, saying he is worried about who will provide for his children. The rst responders retort his children will get sick and die if he stays. Who will pick up your diarrhea? You are losing water quickly. Do you want to die here? Kamara says rmly. The medical team from the Response 2 private ambulance then tries talking to other relatives but its of no use. There are other patients who want to be saved and not enough ambulances to collect them, Kamara says, and the ambulance moves on. Ebola has killed nearly 2,000 people here in Liberia, and is now grow ing exponentially because the sick often remain at home where they spread the virus through bodily uids. There are simply not enough ambulances to drive across the rutted roads into the countryside where the disease is ourishing. Even when ambulances can reach people, the fear of being transported to a facility where more than half the patients leave in body bags keeps some from going. I dont have police or the authority to force them to leave their homes, says Kamara, who spent the rst four hours of his day trying to nd enough protective clothing to do his job. We still have a lot of people to go pick up. We cant stay here. Families say the wait time can be up to four days. Many instead resort to taxis which threatens to spread the virus further while others push their sick relatives in wheelbarrows to the horror of onlookers. The cases are endless, and sometimes far from the Ebola treatment centers: Kamara and his crew head next to the village of Freeman Reserve, more than 30 miles from the capital through elds of rubber trees and past children bathing in the pools of drainage ditches. At least eight people have died here since July from Ebola, and the 50 people who were in contact with them now have been moved to an elementary school turned into a holding center. Three are now showing symptoms and sit outside the principals ofce. Twoyear-old Nathaniel Edward is listless and limp. The boys grandmother died of Ebola, and now his mother is sick too. Kamara and his co-worker Konah Deno don their yellow protective suits and eye goggles. Dont worry, you will do well, he tells the pair, as his assistant sprays a mixture of bleach and water on the ground behind them to disinfect the path they have walked.Ebola creates ambulance shortage in Liberia AP PHOTOMarie Nyan, 26, whose mother died of Ebola, carries her son Nathaniel Edward, 2, to an ambulance after showing signs of Ebola infection in the village of Freeman Reserve, about 30 miles north of Monrovia, Liberia, Tuesday. BERLIN (AP) The Simon Wiesenthal Center has identied dozens of former members of Nazi mobile death squads who might still be alive, and is pushing the German government for an investigation, The Associated Press has learned. The Wiesenthal Centers top Nazi hunter, Efraim Zuroff, told the AP on Wednesday that in September he sent the German justice and interior ministries a list of 76 men and four women who served in the socalled Einsatzgruppen. The Einsatzgruppen, made up of primarily SS and police personnel, followed Nazi Germanys troops as they battled their way eastward in the early years of the war, rounding up and shooting Jews in the opening salvo of the Holocaust before the death camp system was up and running. According to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, they had killed more than a million Soviet Jews and tens of thousands of others by spring 1943. In the death camps the actual act of murder was carried out by a very small number of people the people who put the gas into the gas chambers but the actual act of murder in the Einsatzgruppen was carried out individually, Zuroff said. Almost every person in the Einsatzgruppen was a murderer, a hands-on murderer. Zuroff narrowed down the list of possible suspects by choosing the youngest from a list of some 1,100 with dates of birth known to his organization, from the estimated 3,000 members of the death squads. All 80 would be very old if still alive, born between 1920 and 1924, Zuroff said. Time is running out, he said in a telephone interview from Jerusalem. Something has to be done. Because of Germanys strict privacy laws, the Wiesenthal Center has been unable to confirm where the suspects live, but Zuroff said that task, and determining if theyre still alive, should be relatively easy for police or prosecutors. Meantime, he said, his office is willing to assist in any way possible in coming up with evidence or other details. The hope is that as many as possible will be alive, but theres no guarantee obviously, he said. But every person alive today is a victory of sorts.Nazi hunter pushes for new probe rf nt b ttt tnn ftnt nnnn ttbnfrn ftn tfnnn tnnnbn nnt tbt tttnn nnbn tnttf ftfb t tnnnnt nntrn ftf tf nbntt nfn tb nntn ftnn rnt ntn ftbnn ftnnt rnnn tfbnf nr fnnnn ttn nftttt tbf rnnn tnrt ntfbn nnr tttnbn nttnn n tnbn nb nnnft ttrt nr ttn nfb trrnn ttt t fntn ntb ntttt nt fn bn ttnn b b ttrr ntf ttbtn tnt tnfb rnnf btn rtrnn ttt ttbf nntt ttn btn ntb ttnb tb ttttr tnn ttfn tnntt ftbt trtrn tnttn tttntbn nnn tfb fttn n tnf tnbt nnn ftnnt nntrtn tnr tbt ttft nntnb nt trntr ftf tnb tnrt t By Leonard Finkel rnft ftn frfn tbfttbntf fbfttbt tttrftbftt ntbfttbb ftbtbfb rbbffffbbfnt tfnfff 50473234 New advances in 3D CBCT imaging technologies has made it easier to diagnose disease and plan dental implant surgery more accurately Benefits of 3D CBCT 3 Dimensional Diagnosis Identification of bone-loss/disease Definitive Implant planning Computer guided surgery 1/100th the exposure of Medical CT Scan Joseph H.

According to Consumer Reports, more companies are outsourcing customer service to their own customers. Remember when attendants pumped gas, clerks bagged groceries and the sales help measured your feet before you tried on a pair of shoes? Today at Applebees and Chilis, tableside computer tablets allow patrons to order food and drinks and pay the bill without a waiter. Got a tech-sup port problem? Forget the help line. Just post your question to a companys message board or community forum on its website and wait for amateur troubleshooters to respond. The do-it-yourself economy is transforming industries, services and society at 4G speed. Why have companies embraced self-service so enthusiastically? To save money. A customer ser vice transaction handled by a live agent usually costs between $2 and $10, compared with just pennies for, say, placing an order online, says John Goodman, vice chairman of Customer Care Measurement & Consulting, based in Alexandria, Virginia. Of course, most people dont really think about service until they experience a problem. Self-service shouldnt mean no service. Try canceling an online order immediately after pressing submit. Chances are you cant. Or try tracking down live help if an eBay transaction goes sour. Consumer Reports offers advice on how to cope in this self-service world and what to watch out for.How to find helpTechnology that makes self-service possible also gives consumers a powerful voice. Internet forums can turn one persons headache into a corporate nightmare. Companies actively patrol social networking venues such as Facebook and YouTube to monitor whats being said about them and often respond to a concern before it goes viral. Twitter has become the go-to brand for customer support; be sure to incorporate the companys Twitter handle in your critique. Theres even an app called GripeO that will take your complaint right to a companys doorstep.Other tips:Though few firms post their toll-free numbers on all of their Web pages, more and more offer live chats with agents. Its faster and more efficient than email because you can have a clear dialogue. Be sure to print or email yourself a transcript of the conver sation before signing off. User communities within a firms site are a surefire way to get noticed. You can post questions and comments and air grievances about products and services. Often a representative will join the discussion to put out a fire before word gets out. According to one study, disgruntled complainants are almost three times more likely to express their unhappiness to others than those who have a good experience. Each dissatisfied customer spreads the word to about 28 people. Sidestep automated phone menus. Consumer Reports suggests checking out websites such as and, which list hard-to-find customer service numbers and advise how to bypass automated prompts to get a live person. Use the E word. If you make it through to a live person and still feel you are getting the runaround, tell the agent you want to escalate your complaint. Thats a guaranteed attention grabber because agents can be criticized for bumping too many calls upstairs to a supervisor. Climb the corporate ladder. If your comments are ignored, go to the bottom of the websites home page and sniff around for hyperlinks to corporate contacts, investor relations, company information and so forth. Thats where you can usually find contact details for top management. Survive do-it-yourself customer service NEW YORK (AP) A bottleneck is building in the global market for bonds. Main Street investors have poured a trillion dollars into bonds since the nancial crisis, and helped send prices soar ing. As fund managers and regulators fret about an inevitable sell-off, the bigger fear is that when people go to unload, there wont be anyone to buy. Too many funds own the same bonds, making them difcult to sell in a sudden downturn. On top of that, the banks that used to bring bond buyers and sellers together have pulled back from the role. Investors looking to sell would be slow to nd buyers, spreading fear through the $100 trillion global bond market and sending prices tumbling. Its a situation known as liquidity risk and some bond pros are scrambling to prepare for it. Portfolio managers are hoarding cash. BlackRock, the worlds largest fund manager, is suggesting regulators consider new fees for investors pulling out of funds. Apollo Management, famous for proting from a bond collapse 25 years ago, is launching a fund to bet against bonds. Mohamed El-Erian, former CEO of bond fund giant Pimco, thinks ordinary investors are too blas about the aws in the trading system. Investors today are like homeowners who only discover theres a clog under the sink when its too late and theyre staring at a mess. Its only when you try to put a lot of things through the pipes that you realize youve got a problem, says El-Erian, now chief economic adviser to global insurer Allianz. You get an enormous backup. Whats at risk is more than money in retirement accounts. Big investors often borrow when buying bonds and so losses can be magnied. Trillions of dollars of bets using derivatives ride on bonds, too. A small fall in prices could lead to losses that reverberate throughout the nancial system. The market is so tightly wound, says JPMorgans William Eigen, head of its Strategic Income Opportunities fund, who has put 63 percent of his portfolio in cash. Theres no place to hide. In such a fragile situation, even news with no bearing on bond fundamentals can trigger losses. Why the bond market is more fragile than you think NEW YORK (AP) It was a rough start to October for nancial markets Wednesday, with the Dow Jones industrial average dropping more than 200 points as investors reacted to a round of negative economic news in the U.S. and abroad. At rst stocks were driven lower by word that German manufacturing had slowed last month. The selling accelerated after a separate survey indicated U.S. manufacturing slowed as well. A lot of people thought this economic data was going to be robust, so when it was weak, everyone moved to reposition, said Tom di Galoma, head of rates and credit trading at ED&F Man Capital. Investors were also selling stocks following news that the rst case of Ebola had been diagnosed in the U.S. Investors dumped airline stocks and bought a handful of drug companies working on experimental Ebola treatments. The blue chip Dow index lost 238.19 points, or 1.4 percent, to 16,804.71. The Standard & Poors 500 index lost 26.13 points, or 1.3 percent, to 1,946.16 and the Nasdaq composite lost 71.30 points, or 1.6 percent, to 4,422.09. The report that set off most of the selling in the U.S. was the Institute for Supply Managements monthly manufacturing survey, one of the more closely watched economic indicators that investors look for each month. The ISM index came in at 56.6, below the 58.5 economists expected.US stocks drop sharply 0 0

Ontakes eruption on Saturday, according to doctors. The doctors related stories of how climbers suffered serious back or head injuries as they tried to protect themselves from rocks that fell from the sky like rain. Most of the victims died after being struck by volcanic rocks while they tried to escape, and then were covered in ash, the doctor said, adding that the bones of some of the victims had been shattered whiles others had suffered from numerous bruises. Another doctor said the bodies had suffered severe injuries, but the victims were found in various situations one seems to have just arrived at a mountain lodge when he was fatally injured, another was found dead with a mobile phone in hand and a third victim died while clutching a backpack. It is a situation beyond our imagination, the doctor said. A doctor who treated some severely injured climbers commented on how lethal the volcanic rocks are. The rocks mainly struck the backs of the climbers as they descended the mountain. Many suffered more than one broken bone, Kaneyuki Furihata, a Nagano Red Cross Hospital doctor who treated the injured, said at a press conference on Tuesday. Furihata and other doctors arrived Saturday night at Nagano Prefectural Kiso Hospital to treat the injured. Furihata said he saw five patients in their 30s and 40s, who suffered from bone fractures and internal bleeding after being struck in the back or head by rocks. One had suffered a broken rib, which had punctured a lung. Many victims are believed to have suffered back injuries because they crouched down in an effort to protect themselves, Furihata said. The situation around the mountain peak has gradually become clear. Toshiaki Kano, 59, head of the Nagoya municipal fire department who joined the rescue operation Sunday, said many people were lying on their sides or face down, mostly covered with volcanic ash. As the ash piled up to a few dozen centimeters, only a hand or leg of many of the victims could be seen.Raining volcanic rocks killed volcano climbers AP PHOTOIn this Sunday photo released by Tokyo Fire Department, reghters carry a hiker trapped in the summit area of Mount Ontake during Saturdays initial eruption in central Japan. A dozen more bodies were found Wednesday near the ash-covered summit of the Japanese volcano. BEIJING (AP) The 10,000 doves released in a ceremony Wednesday for Chinas National Day underwent unusual scrutiny, each having its feathers and anus checked for dangerous materials, state-run media reports said, reecting government jitters over possible attacks. The symbols of peace were released at sunrise in Beijings symbolic heart of Tiananmen Square in a ceremony for the Oct. 1 holiday to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the founding of the Peoples Republic of China. Beijing domestic security police ofcer Guo Chunwei was quoted in the Jinghua Times as saying workers checked the wings, legs and anus of each pigeon ahead of time to ensure they were not carrying suspicious material. The entire process was videotaped, and the birds were then loaded into sealed vehicles for the trip to Tiananmen Square, the newspaper said. A similar report appeared in the Beijing News, and the Peoples Daily tweeted about it in English: ,000 pigeons go through anal security check for suspicious objects Tue, ready to be released on National Day on Wed. The reports which did not say what the suspicious materials might be drew amused and derisive responses from some Chinese readers, and many news sites, including the Beijing News website, later deleted the reports. However, the Jinghua Times report and the Peoples Daily tweet were still visible as of midday Wednesday. Members of the Chinese public responded with sarcasm because they see in the pigeon body searches their own plight in what they consider an oppressive society with tight surveillance, censorship and judicial injustice, independent columnist Zhang Ping said in an editorial that was circulated on social media under his pen name, Changping.Reports: China workers body-searched 10,000 pigeons Serving Arcadia Englewood North Port Port Charlotte Punta Gorda Venice1-866-463-1638 Placing your classi ed ad in Floridas Largest Classi ed Section is as easy as 1-2-3!Visit our new & improved website at sun-classi and schedule up to 5 free 3-line classi ed ads each week.

WEEKLY MAGAZINE Scientists probe deep secrets of the Dry Tortugas Well, I may be the worst tarpon sherman on Charlotte Harbor, but at least I can still catch Spanish mackerel. That makes me happy, because theyre one of my favorite sh to put in the cooler for a fresh sh supper. Did the thought make you gag? I know some folks who just cant gure how I can possibly stand to choke down mackerel llets. When I hear that, all I can do is laugh. See, I used to think the same thing: Mackerel are nasty things, t only for shark bait or cat food. What a dope I was! My rst fresh mackerel llet was a lie. I was told it was freshwater catsh. After the rst bite, I knew it wasnt, but I didnt nd out the awful truth until Id eaten the whole thing. It was fantastic. I wondered how I could have been so wrong. Then I realized the problem its the name. I was equating Spanish mackerel with canned jack mackerel, which really are for cast-iron palates only. They couldnt be more dierent. Theyre not even related. Jack mackerel are actually in the jack family. Theyre not mackerel at all! Still not ready to try it? No worries. Ive got a few tips that will make you a mackerel lover, assuming you like sh in the rst place. If Im wrong, you can throw mackerel heads at me next time you see me. Get your mack on ice ASAP. I dont care if its 50 degrees out, ice (slush, actually) is mandatory. The sh have a hypothermic reaction, which pulls a lot of the strong-tasting blood from the muscles to the organs. This not only makes the llets better, it results in a quicker and more humane death for the sh. Just because youre going to eat it doesnt mean it has to suer. Keep the sh in the slush until youre ready to llet it. The meat is prone to spoiling, and a good sti mackerel is a lot easier to clean anyway, using the super-simple cleaning technique shown below. Its so easy, I didnt even need words. Eat the llets fresh. A freezer is no place for a mackerel llet. Grouper, yes; redsh, yes; mackerel, no way. You can use your favorite recipe for mild white sh or try mine, which has turned a number of your fellow anglers into believers. Youre next. 4 Spanish mackerel llets, skin on Dukes mayonnaise Sea salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste Old Bay seafood seasoning to taste Preheat oven to 400F. Line a cookie sheet with foil. Lay llets skin side down on foil. Coat with mayonnaise (and yes, it has to be Dukes seri ously) as desired. I like a light coating. Remember, youre not frosting a cake here. Sprinkle with seasonings. Bake for 20 minutes or until sh akes easily with a fork. Serves two. Maybe even just one. Its that good.

Here at Gasparilla Marina, I have everything I need to make sure that happens. My boat is securely stored on a lift, but I have easy access to it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I can get fuel, bait and supplies at competitive prices right here. I love not having to trailer it anywhere to have work done; the marinas service department takes care of everything. Plus I have quick access to the areas best shing spots. I cant imagine keeping my boat anywhere else. Capt. Mike Myers, Reelshark Charters 4 41P-ITTr ?'ato m.

Page 6 October 2, 2014 LOCAL FISHING REPORTS FROM VENICE TO PINE ISLAND INSHORE & FRESHWATER GULF & OFFSHORE BEST BETRedsh are schooling up. Most are 18 to 20 inches with a few bigger ones scattered in. Hunt around docks and seawalls. There are single sh on the ats around mullet schools. Either way, they like shrimp on a jighead or cut pinsh. Black drum 24 inches plus are hanging around structure and deeper water. Youll also nd 12to 15-inch snapper there eating shrimp. The trout bite is decent early or late; forget about midday. Grouper are farther out over hard bottom and ledges. A few kingsh are also coming in from the same areas. Sharks are out there in good numbers. Some permit have been caught on the wrecks. The articial reefs have been giving up lots of mangrove snapper. The jetties and bridges are loaded with snook, and there are still quite a few on the beaches. Fish live pinsh or chunks of fresh mullet. Spanish mackerel are holding on the ats just east of Boca Grande Pass on incoming tides. Mangrove snapper are still red up around docks near Boca, Gasparilla and Stump passes. Sheepshead have started showing up early on the Placida trestle. Snook are pushing into the backcountry, but there are some left on the beaches. The beaches also have a few ounder. A handful of pompano reports are scattered all over. The red grouper reports are good on the deeper reefs; season closes Oct. 4. Some big 15-plus-pound mahi have been caught at 24 miles out. Snapper, grunts and porgies are biting well on the nearshore reefs. There are redsh schools in Lemon Bay, but theyre being shed pretty hard. If you want a shot, be patient and quiet as you approach and throw cut mullet or live whitebait. Look for schools of mullet at rst light and throw a topwater for the redsh that are bound to be mixed in with them. Tilapia are biting well on worms in the North Port canals. There are red grouper at 7 or 8 miles out and on the deeper reefs eating cutbait. Cobia have also been reported within sight of the beach. Get on the ats of Lemon Bay at dawn and cast white topwater plugs for a mixed bag of trout and snook. The high water has freshwater bass spread all over. Look for spots where water is dumping in and toss plastic worms or frogs. Snook have moved to the ats and the reds have gone deeper. Both are hungry and ready to hit almost anything. Pinsh are everywhere and picking shrimp apart, so use pins for bait. Trout reports are slow in the Harbor but good in Lemon Bay. The dark water is hiding a few tripletail around the markers. Wind and rain has made shing tough, but guys who are getting out have seen some barracuda and hogsh. Flounder are around the nearshore reefs. Tarpon are scattered across the Harbor, especially around bridges and structure. Theyre very active and fairly willing to bite any lure that resembles the baitsh theyre eating (swimbait, anyone?). Fish near the surface. The snook have mostly moved inshore. Trout reports are getting better around Pine Island Sound, Two Pine, Matlacha and Turtle Bay. Pompano are patrolling the outsides of the bars and along channels. Black drum will eat dead shrimp on a jighead in the saltwater canals. Sheepshead are showing up as the water cools o. Fish cut clam or shrimp on a No. 4 hook at Alligator Creek Reef for spadesh, or toss a spoon there for mackerel. Watch the weather if you head oshore. Kingsh are getting thicker, but the action isnt hot and heavy yet. Snapper and porgies are plentiful at 15 miles. Troll the ledges in about 45 feet for gags, or head out to 100 feet and enjoy the last couple days of red grouper season in federal waters. There are nice schools of red sh pretty much everywhere from Whorehouse Point south along the bars. Most are over the slot, so measure carefully. Cut pinsh, white bait and shrimp work, or try topwaters early in the day. Snook are still along the beaches but the inshore migration is heavy. Spanish macks are coming inshore with the tide and leaving as it goes out. Pompano have been reported along the Intracoastal. Lots of tarpon are feeding on ladysh (and D.O.A. Bait Busters) from the river mouths to the 20-foot holes. Scattered trout reports are coming in; most are small but a few good ones are out there. The PGI canals have black drum and mangrove snapper. The bite has been hit or miss. Mangrove snapper to 5 pounds have been caught on Tremblay Reef. Lane snapper, grunts and porgies are tearing it up on the Schoolbus Reef. Barracuda and cobia have also been sighted. Some kingsh have been caught, but theyve been closer to 5 pounds than 50. Good upper-slot redsh have been reported on the south side of the Burnt Store bar, the ats of Whidden Creek and Patricio Island. Anglers are doing really well on whitebait and cut ladysh. Redsh are schooling in the backwater areas. If you cant nd a school, look for mullet on the ats. The ats are also producing some trout, though not many huge ones. Snook are in the passes and moving up onto the ats, but the bite has been sporadic. Some enormous jacks have been cruising around the cuts and troughs. Bait balled up in the bay is getting lots of attention from Spanish mackerel. Mangrove snapper shing is hot on the ARC towers, and the red grouper bite is on re in 65 feet. Redsh are tailing on the ats early in the morning in just a few inches of water. Run a gold spoon past them. Redsh are taking cutbait on the ats. Cobia have been reported on the Burnt Store Bar; feed them cut mullet or live pinsh. Mangrove shorelines are holding some nice redsh and 12to 14-inch snapper. Tarpon about 20 or 30 pounds are hanging around the south side of the Matlacha Bridge; try live pinsh or a red and white Bomber. The red grouper bite is going strong.

Page 8 October 2, 2014 A couple weeks ago, I wrote about shing peppergrass, discussing baits and techniques that one might want to employ when shing this type of cover. I had every intention of trying this in an upcoming tournament until I got to the lake and saw the wind blowing small whitecaps on the water. One thing you learn in a hurry about Florida shing: The weather changes, and it changes quick. The day before a tour nament may be calm, but that can change literally overnight. This is what happened at my last tourna ment on Reedy Lake. Reedy is a smaller lake with mostly shoreline cover. However, there are a few spots where the peppergrass grows out in deeper water. If you can locate these spots and sh them eectively, you will often be rewarded. But when there are whitecaps out on the lake when you get started, its not easy to locate the pepper grass. Even if you do nd it, its tough just to sh it. I tried running to the calm side of the lake and found no peppergrass worth shing. The only good peppergrass I knew of was right where the wind was blowing into. I worked the baits I wanted to use over these spots as best I could in the wind, but realized I just was not going to be able to sh there eectively, never mind thoroughly. So I abandoned this plan pretty fast and went to some old tried-and-true spots that I had. The sad part was they were all on the windy side of the lake. The water was dirty from the wind blowing in. Plus, the vegeta tion (lily pads) had thinned out considerably. Bass prefer thick pad cover to hide under and get away from the sun. I worked my swim bait through these areas twice and didnt raise a single bass. I moved out to a point on the lake and started to sh some old reliable boat docks that I have shed many times before. There are roughly half a dozen docks that are really good to sh, and I routinely pull one out of there better than 6 pounds. On the second dock, I ipped to the front edge near a piling and saw my line swim o. A typical big lazy bass bite suck the bait in and move away with it. I set the hook back into the sh and felt three huge tail pumps, only to be left with a broken line and no sh. I retied and worked the other docks with no luck. Still upset over losing that nice sh, I grabbed a Rat-L-Trap and started working around the point down to some calmer waters. I came upon a patch of peppergrass and made a long cast parallel to the grass line, hoping to nd a feeding bass moving around in the calm water. Halfway back to the boat, I got a strike. I pulled the rod back, applied pressure to set the hook and went about reeling him to the boat. I played him slowly to the boat to tire him out. As the sh came to the surface, it was on its side looking like it had given up. I reached down to lip the sh only to watch it jump out of the water, shake its head and throw the lure right back at me. Discouragement had now set in. This was the second tournament in a row that I could not get the hook in a bass. I weighed in nothing last month, and once again I weighed in nothing this month. For some reason, the bass just dont seem to stay hooked up, or I break them o, or have an equipment failure. It just seems like the shing spirits are rising up against me at every turn. What makes it tough is that I have not had a problem locating bass eager to bite I just simply cant get them in the boat. Rather than take my frustrations out on my tackle (although any excuse for new gear is a good excuse), I have decided to focus on my head. Its just time to sit down, clean the slate and regroup. I need to gure out why I am missing all of these sh. Is it the way I am putting the hook in the bait and not allowing it to come through prop erly on a hookset? Am I being too impatient and not giving them time to get the bait in their mouth? Whatever the case may be, I need to reexamine all of my mishaps and see if I can get this train put back on the tracks. With any luck, I can get myself sorted out so my shing gets back to where it once was.Greg Bartz is a tournament bass sherman based in Lakeland.

Page 9 October 2, 2014 WaterLine photo by Ralph AllenRed grouper season in federal waters is scheduled to close Oct. 4. If you want a couple for the table, youd better get on it.Tomorrow is probably your last good chance to put a red grouper in the cooler. Unless there is yet another last-minute change, the recreational shery for red grouper in Gulf of Mexicos federal waters is scheduled to close at midnight tomorrow. The red grouper shery will not close in state waters, but the state/ federal boundary is only 9 nautical miles oshore. O Boca Grande, the boundary lies in about 50 feet of water. Not many legalsized red grouper are harvested in water that shallow. If you can nd them in state waters, youre golden, but most of us will see our red grouper harvest quashed until January when the season will open in federal waters, allowing anglers to harvest the sh in their more typical deeper haunts. The reason for the closure: Red grouper shing has been so good that recreational anglers are believed to have caught their annual quota already. In the meantime, gag season is open in both state and federal waters o South west Florida, and is tentatively scheduled to remain open through Dec. 3. Unlike red grouper, keeper gags in our region are commonly caught in state waters, especially in the fall and early winter. This seasonal shery usually gets serious in November. Talk on the docks is that the gag shing since the season opened July 1 has been slow throughout the region. If this is true, and if it is accurately reected in shery landings estimates, then the season could be extended past the tentative closure date. Its a bizarre world when great shing becomes bad news (leading to an early red grouper season closure) and poor shing becomes good news (possibly extended season on gag).A RAINY CURVEBALL FROM MOTHER NATUREA drier-than-usual four-month rainy season was almost nished. Then along came the last two weeks of September, the nal days of the nal month of our ocial wet season. It rained, rained some more, and rained even more. As I write this (Sunday morning) my street is ooded from last nights rains and my neighbor is hoping that passing cars will proceed at a minimum wake speed so the resulting waves dont wash into her garage. One result of the relatively limited rainfall during the prior four months was reduced freshwater ows into Charlotte Harbor from coastal rivers, creeks and ditches, and this led to clearer and saltier water in the Harbor than is usually seen in late summer. On a sunny day, it was easy to see the bottom in 3 or 4 feet of water right around the mouth of the Peace River. That changed very rapidly after a few days of rainfall, and the water in the upper Harbor is now so dark that its tough to see down much more than a foot. Fish respond to the changing conditions in dierent ways. Trout being caught around the U.S. 41 bridges are now adorned with beautiful golden-yellow bellies and ns, and are much dierent in appearance than just a few weeks ago. Other species of sh changed locations in response to the inux of fresh water entering the Harbor. The shoals of tiny tilapia which were discussed here last week probably rode a surge of rainwater runo down the Peace River. Their arrival coincided with the appear ance of batches of oating water lettuce, fresh water plants which were ushed out of the river by the rising waters. Schools of sardines and herrings, small baitsh which prefer saltier water, had been numerous in the mouth of the river, but most have since moved some miles downstream away from the freshet. Their migration back upstream will depend on the subsidence of the river, which will take at least a week once the rains have stopped. Lets go shing!Capt.

Page 10 October 2, 2014 Louise wont be shing today. Its not that she doesnt want to. But Louise has been battling a list of physical ailments longer than your casting arm. In fact, her casting arm is lled with a dark string of shunt locations for dialysis. You probably dont know Louise. She lives just down the block from me. Usually, we just wave to each other as she takes Galen, her barrel-chested black lab with the slobbering smile, for a walk. Louise has a loving friend and companion at home named Dianne. Unfortunately for their household, Dianne also has health problems. She cant go anywhere without toting around a clumsy oxygen bottle. Despite their combined challenges, these ladies are so active that I refuse to compare myself out of sheer embarrassment. I will say this: Dont be fooled by their sweet appearance. Louise and Dianne are two tough women. Im not saying they go out looking for bar ghts. I mean they quietly endure painful conditions on a daily basis. Louise and Dianne have been there for each other through thick and thin. They are survi vors. My heroes have always been survivors. See, I know what its like to give up a portion of my life. When I was 16 years old, I was diagnosed with a severe neurological disorder. The doctors warned me that the symptoms would keep me from pursuing any kind of normal life. In fact, there was a good chance I would be taking the dirt nap way ahead of schedule. They were right, to some extent. My life has not been ordinary. But neither has yours. Id like to think we are all extraordinary in our own way. Hey, were still here sning daisies, right? Louise showed up at my door yesterday morning. She was holding a shing rod in her gauze-wrapped hand. Her eyes were lled with tears. Here, Tom, take this, she said. Ill never be able to use it again. Dianne and I want to give it to you. I set the rod aside and gave her a gentle hug. She needed it. Louise was losing a special part of life. Im sure that admitting to herself that angling was no longer a viable recreation was dicult enough. But actually giving away the gear well, that must have been an emotional gut punch. Reality really sucks sometimes. Dianne and Louise are shing fanatics who happen to be females. Thats not as unusual in todays world, especially here on the Sun Coast. But long before they moved to Florida, the girls spent countless hours angling for the species common to the eastern seaboard. There werent too many women on the beach casting for stripers in those days. I told Louise that I would put her gift to good use, and for once, I was right. The very next morning, I hooked the fattest mangrove snapper I ever laid eyes on easily a meal for four. I guess the ladies left me some luck in that rod. Before I cleaned the snapper, I threw him in a ve gallon bucket and went down to show the girls. They giggled and took a picture, which is what you should do if you love to sh. It is not the brand name of the gear or even the future catch that will distinguish this rod in my collection of poles. I have been entrusted with a tool that has already proven it can provide excitement and happiness. There were no strings attached when Louise handed me the rod. But I understood the implicit promise. When the sunset of my life arrives in full force, I may be unable to put this gear to practical use. With that in mind, I pledge not to stow this rod and reel in a garage corner. If its still functional (and with me at the controls, that is a big if), I will pass it on to someone else whose eyes light up at the very mention of the word shing. Here is the simple message of this column: For all of you who want to sh, but cant; for all of you who have loved the sport, and have had to leave it behind, rest assured that you are not alone. Louise understands. I understand. For those of you who still have the energy, the health, and the circumstances that allow you to drop a line in the water, remember to treasure the experience.

Page 11 October 2, 2014 This week we really need to talk about a great option in rimre ries and pistols. With .22 Long Rie and .22 Magnum ammunition being still fairly hard to come by, we have had people asking about alternatives. The one that we frequently suggest is a .17 Hornady Magnum Rimre, more commonly known as a .17 HMR. The .17 HMR round was developed by Hornady Ammunition in 2002. It is basically a necked-down .22 Magnum. The round was developed to ll the niche of the obsolete 5mm Remington Magnum round, which is now essentially unavailable unless you really, really, really look for it. Being dicult to obtain means higher prices, much like what has happened over the past few years with ammunition in general. The average .22 LR bullet has a muzzle velocity of 1,250 feet per second. The .22 Magnum moves much faster at roughly 2,000 feet per second. But the .17 HMR really zips along, about 2,500 feet per second. Now I know you are saying thats because its a smaller bullet, and you are partly correct. However, unlike the .22 LR and .22 Mag, that little .17 bullet is designed to y. It seems like the designer had a degree in aerodynamics, because the eective range is quite substantial compared to the .22 LR and .22 Mag. The eective range, according to Hornadys charts, is approximately 150 yards 50 percent farther than the .22 LR. The .17 HMR comes in various bullet weights, but 17and 20-grain are the most common. Several companies produce the .17 HMR round, including CCI, Hornady, Federal and Remington. Bullets are also available from Winchester, PMC and Sellier & Bellot. There are several manufacturers that make ries (and a few select pistols) chambered in .17 HMR. One that I really like is Henry Ries, for starters because they are made in America. Henrys Lever Varmint Express is a traditional lever rie that features a smooth action and a checkered American walnut Monte Carlo stock. The Henry is a tough-to-get rie retailing out around $550. The second one I really like is a traditional bolt-action rie, the Savage 93R17 GV. This gun has a 21-inch barrel with a satin blue nish, a walnut-stained wood stock and an adjustable AccuTrigger, and sells complete with a factory scope for $359! Then we have the one that all the tactical shooters love. Alexander Arms makes the .17 HMR is a semi-automatic platform. It is also very hard to nd and quite a bit more money. The Alexander Arms model has an 18-inch barrel made of stainless steel, complemented with straight utes and a muzzle brake (not that its needed). It has a 10-round detachable magazine and is a lot of fun to shoot, but commands a hefty $1,200 price tag. Moving on to pistols, the choices are a bit more limited. However, I suspect people will continue to move away from .22-caliber guns if ammo continues to be scarce, so there are prob ably more options coming. The rst handgun I would recommend is the Taurus Tracker Model 17. This matte stainless steel revolver has a 6.5-inch barrel, adjustable sights and a sevenround cylinder. The gun has a lifetime warranty and is a great buy at around $500. The second is a gun most of you will recognize but maybe not have known was made in this caliber the Ruger New Model Super Single-Six. It has a 6.5 inch barrel in a blue nish with adjustable rear sights. This six-shooter retails for about $550 and is a great single-action revolver. The bottom line: .22 LR is great, but its been very hard to nd for most of us. The .17 HMR is a great alternative for just a bit more money. Its fun and easy to shoot for any age or gender. The .17 HMR is also great for what it was originally intended for varmint hunting. Its faster and better downrange than either .22 rimre round. Do some research and then give the .17 HMR a try. I highly doubt you will be disappointed. Happy shooting.Ryan Ingle has owned and operated Higher Power Outtters in Punta Gorda since 2011.

Page 12 October 2, 2014 I would like to start with two obvious statements: Rain is fresh water. Also, saltwater sh like salty water. If either of these things surprise you, youve got bigger problems than needing some shing tips. This information is pretty basic. Ill add one more fact that you already know: Some of the rain that falls ends up in canals, creeks and rivers, which ow toward the sea. Now Id like to shock you. I looked up some water ow data from several local gauges maintained and monitored by the U.S. Geological Survey. Late Sunday afternoon, there were 3,550 cubic feet of water per second owing down the Peace River at Nocatee. The Myakka was pumping out 2,570 cfs. Horse Creek, 1,610 cfs; Prairie Creek, 827 cfs; Shell Creek, 654 cfs. Together, those ve tributaries were dumping 9,211 cubic feet (or 68,903 gallons) of fresh water into Char lotte Harbor every second. Let me do the math for you: 4,143,000 gallons a minute. 248,600,000 gallons an hour. Just shy of six billion gallons in 24 hours. And that doesnt include the water running o into the canals, the hundreds of smaller creeks, and the rain falling right into the Harbor. Really, with that much fresh water dumping into Charlotte Harbor, it almost seems like we should be catching bass and bluegill all the way down to Boca Grande Pass (at least on an outgoing tide). That there are any saltwater sh in the Harbor at all is only possible because most of our coastal saltwater sh are adapted to a wide variety of conditions. Some of them are more adaptable than others. Snook, tarpon and blue crabs are good examples they can live their entire lives in fresh water. Many small ponds and ditches around the area that dont appear to be connected to any salt water have these animals living in them. Whats happened is short-term ooding, which brought in sh fry and crab larvae from saltwater areas. Most cant survive, but some can, and thats why youll sometimes nd adult blue crabs and snook in these areas. That marvel of nature aside, a massive ow of fresh water into Charlotte Harbor tends to push salt-loving sh out sometimes a long way out. Trout and redsh are still biting in the lower reaches of the Harbor, but the Spanish mackerel that had started to move in are now well out in the Gulf. Early fall usually signals the start of the dry season, when river ows slow and the Harbor starts to get salty again. With this recent rain, thats going to be delayed by a few weeks. But dont curse at water from the sky. The Harbor is so productive specically A wall of fresh water ANGLING 101 ROBERT LUGIEWICZ WaterLine photo by Josh OliveHeavy rain might chase you o the water, but its necessary for the long-term health of the Harbor and its rich shing. rf nrtb t nr rf r fnt bt 25tf ff 487176 rf rrntbbbf COASTAL FISHING COASTAL COASTAL FISHING COASTAL LAKE FISHING CHARTS LAKE FISHING CHARTS STANDARD NAVIGATION CHARTS STANDARD NAVIGATION CHARTS INSHORE FISHING CHARTS INSHORE FISHING CHARTS LARGE PRINT CHARTS LARGE PRINT CHARTS 50475036 E D6Ivriv 2014Shar??

Page 13 October 2, 2014 Wikimedia Commons photoBlue crabs can live in fresh water, but its not a safe haven from predators. Alligators make quick work of their tough shells.because of the fresh water that ows into it. The mix of salt and fresh water, aka brackish water, gets the best of both worlds: The rivers carry nutrients from land-based sources, and the sea provides bountiful food with every incoming tide. An estuary is a rich soup of living creatures, which provides a solid base to the food chain, which is why so many large preda tors (that means all the sh we want to catch) are able to live here in a relatively small area. Rain also has some immediate benets. It washes salt residue and bird poop o the mangroves, allowing them better access to the suns energy while also fertilizing them (and the nearby grass ats). The wind that accompanies storms whips up waves, which add oxygen to the water. Cloud cover helps lower the water temperature, and cooler water holds more oxygen. All of these things make the Harbor more productive, both in the short and long term. So hows shing now? Well, Im not usually a big advocate of tide shing, but right now Id be looking for an incoming tide in the upper Harbor. Really, Id be concentrating my eorts on deeper cuts (salinity is a little higher there, since salt water is heavier) in the lower Harbor from Burnt Store and Cape Haze south. Even there, Id still want for an incoming tide if I were trying to catch mackerel, sharks or other species that prefer lots of salt. The nutrient outow will get the baitsh excited in a couple weeks, and that will get the macks, bonita, redsh and other predators red up. So the rain is putting a damper on the shing temporarily, but its going to help us out in the longer term. It wont be long before the dry season takes hold and youll have to water your lawn again. Then youll miss those showers. I know its probably messing with your shing right now, but just remember that a bit of rain is far from a bad thing.Robert Lugiewicz is the manager of Fishin Franks Bait & Tackle, located at 4425-D Tamiami Trail in Charlotte Harbor.

The victim, who lives on Gulf Shores Drive, told deputies that someone had entered an area of his house and rummaged through a room that was being used for storage some time in the early morning hours of Saturday, Sept. 20. He said the house was in order when he went to bed, but things were out of place when he woke the next morning. Some of the items that had been in the storage room were laying on the oor in front of the door. When the victim checked, he found that seven of his shing rods and reels had been taken. The total value of the items was estimated at more than $1,500. Detectives are asking that anyone who might have information related to this theft or any similar thefts in the Gulf Shores Drive area of Gasparilla Island, call the Sheris Oce at 941-639-2101 (ask for district detectives), or Crime Stoppers at 800-780-TIPS (8477). Provided by CCSO SIZE LIMIT: Min. 12 at fork DAILY BAG LIMIT: 5 per harvester AVERAGE SIZE: 1 to 3 lbs STATE RECORD: 19 lb, 8 oz HABITAT: Hogfish are generally considered to be a reef species. Sometimes they can also be found around wrecks or other structure. Off our coastline, they often live over hard bottom. Almost unknown in inshore waters, these fish are more common offshore in water deeper than 30 feet. LEGAL GEAR: spears, gigs, hook and line, seine, cast net. FOOD VALUE: Considered a delicacy. FISHING METHODS: Hogfish are much more numerous in the Florida Keys and rarely targeted off Southwest Florida, though there are a few well-guarded locations where they are fairly common. Sometimes caught by snapper anglers using shrimp, which are a major part of the hogfishs diet. Rarely, one may be caught on squid or cutbait. Hogs are also a favorite with spearfishermen. In fact, this is one of the few species for which a significant percentage of the harvest is taken by spear. Although sometimes called hog snapper, these fish are actually members of the wrasse family. NOTES: Reef fish rules apply when harvesting. You must use non-stainless steel circle hooks if using natural bait and possess a dehooking device to be used when appropriate.

Page 14 October 2, 2014 Photos providedThe business end of a smoker king. This is why its best to use a ga to get a big one into the boat.OK, the wait is nally over. I know you have been just champing at the bit for the last two weeks waiting to nally read about what baits to use for this falls kingsh run and how to present those baits to ensure yourself a reel-smoking run from one of these seasonal speedsters. Well, maybe you havent been champing at the bit to read this column. Heck, Im just hoping that a few of you remember the article I wrote two weeks ago, entitled The Kings of Autumn in case you forgot. Now, if you didnt read it, thats all right you can nd it on the WaterLine website ( Or you can just go down to the Charlotte Sun building on Harborview Road and ask for Josh Olive (hes the publisher). He will be more than happy to hand out the Sept. 11 editions of WaterLine to any of you who stop by (Editors note: Nope. Go to the website) so you get as much educational value from this article as possible. Plus, he just really likes to meet readers (Editors note: That part is true) If neither of those scenarios works for you dont panic, Im going to give you a brief rundown of part one anyway. Where do you nd kingsh? Well, anywhere from 10 feet o the beach to as far out into the Gulf as youre willing to travel. Thats a broad answer, I know, but its accurate. Let me make it a little more user-friendly for you. If youre looking to hook a bunch of kings, head out to some of the better-known reefs and wrecks oshore. Smaller kings tend to swim in larger schools and seem to like to hang around structures that hold baitsh. For you thrill-seekers looking for monsters, let me suggest staying closer to shore. I have found the smoker kings tend to be loners and seem to prefer stalking their prey within sight of land. And remember, the big passes are always worth a run-through. Now, what do you look for? The easiest answer to that question: Action lots of action. Some of the best indicators that kings may be nearby are nervous water, bait pods boiling, sh busting on top of the water, birds diving and, of course, kingsh skyrocketing into the air. If you notice anything dierent about a small patch of Gulf water make sure you give it a good once-over because you never know what you might nd. On to the questions you really want answered: What are the best baits for king sh, and how do I present them to get the best bite? Lets start with live baits. The best live bait I can think of in our area is a mighty blue runner, but large threadns, cigar minnows and mullet also work just ne. Kingsh can be nicky eaters, so try to catch whatever theyre feeding on when you nd them. If you happen to have a blue runner or two in your livewell, make sure to toss them out there they seem to be the one bait a king cant refuse.

Page 15 October 2, 2014 This blue runner is a little on the large side, but a big king would have no trouble eating Stinger rigs are simple to make just attach a treble hook to the eye of your main hook using a piece of wire leader material, then put the treble in the baits tail. The pre-made ones work very well also. If Im shing a structure for smaller sh, I like to balloon up one large bait (just in case there is a big boy around) and free-line a few more of the smaller ones right over the structure. If Im looking specically for a smoker, I use only blue runners for bait and I slow troll them around bait schools close to the beach and around the passes. Maybe youre like me and enjoy using articial lures. Try out some of the awesome deep-diving plugs that are out on the market today. The Manns Stretch series seem to be the most popular in our area, but Rapala, Sebile and Bomber all make great deep divers. You just tie them on, toss them in the water and start trolling. The farther out you let them out, the deeper they go. Really, theyre almost foolproof. King spoons are another great bait, but theyre a tad more tricky to use. If youre going to drag spoons behind your boat, youre going to need planners to get them down in the water column. If youre not quite sure how to use a planner, head down to your favorite tackle shop and let them teach you. Trolling is a great way to catch kings, but it can get boring at times, so bring some good music with you to troll by. The kings are here, folks. If this weather ever breaks long enough to let you get out there, take your shot and get those drags a-smoking. Tight lines.Capt.

(AP) Two technical divers have found what is believed to be human remains inside the cabin of a sailboat some 300 feet below the surface about three miles o Key Largo. The Miami Herald reports the remains are believed to belong to 24-year-old Noah Cullen. Hes been missing since Aug. 4 when a boater last spotted his sailboat sinking. The divers, Joe Citelli and Steve Muslin, found what is believed to be human remains inside the cabin and retrieved a small sample to be analyzed. While positive identication through DNA could take months, Monroe County Sheris Oce investigator Vince Weiner said, There is no indication it is anybody but him. The tragedy began on a nice Monday morning, when Cullen decided to take his sailboat to the reef to go free diving. He had tried to get friends to go with him but ended up going by himself. He set sail from his mothers house, near mile marker 100 of the Overseas Highway, and a few hours later was spotted at noon at French Reef by a boat captain with Quiesence Dive Center. Cullen had just nished free diving and began sailing toward shore. The captain watching him was impressed with his [sailing] abilities, Rob Bleser, captain of the Key Largo Volunteer Fire Departments Water Emergency Team, said at the time. That would be the last time Cullen was seen alive. About an hour after he was seen leaving French Reef, a storm rolled in with lightning, heavy rains and winds of up to 25 knots. Around 2:30 p.m. another boater saw a sinking sailboat with no signs of life and alerted authorities. The remains were taken to the medical examiners oce. A sh and wildlife spokesman says its unlikely theyll nd out why the boat sank. 1 pound backfin crab meat 1 small onion, minced 1 small green pepper, minced 6 tbsp butter 3 medium to large potatoes, boiled, peeled, and diced 1 tsp salt 1/2 tsp celery salt Generous sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper Dash of cayenne pepper 4 eggs, well beaten Saut onion and green pepper in butter in a medium-size heavy skillet until tender-crisp, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Page 18 October 2, 2014 Photo providedA hungry bottlenose dolphin chases a just-released snook (which somehow managed to escape). Recent weather has been slightly cooler and much wetter. We are catching up on the rainfall we missed the last couple of months. Fronts are coming down into Florida but stalling out before passing us. Many of us are looking forward to cooler temperatures, which may come earlier than usual since we are experiencing fronts already. The fronts need to go on by our area, allowing cool air from the north to sweep in. Its cooler than it was, anyway, and we needed the rain. With water temps falling, currently down into mid-80s, the sh will continue increased activity and feeding aggressively. Expect to see more baitsh schools move into nearshore Gulf waters soon. When the food ows in, hungry schools of predatory sh will be in hot pursuit. I am concerned as to what, if any, eects the red tide north of us will have on our southern sh migra tions; God only knows what will happen. Whats important is all is great right now! So my suggestion: Go enjoy this wonderful opportunity we have. We have plenty of hungry sh and less company than at any other time of the year. Im looking forward to better mackerel action soon, but we are already catching a few nice-sized ones. Snook and reds are also available, with plenty of bait minnows right now. Our minnows are still smaller than we prefer, but so much better than what we endured all summer. Life could be better, but count your blessings instead of griping things could be so much worse. Baitsh minnows can be easy to catch now, if you are on top of their movements. If they are not abundant in your favorite spot, move on and look around. Most of the time its easy, but dark waters can add an extra challenge. Animals dont stay in one place; thats no way to survive. Some days we can just run up and catch minnows, but patience with chum does concentrate them. If you can sneak around and castnet the school, thats great. If you are just scaring minnows expect them to scatter, then get smarter and be even harder to catch. Try some of my Magic Fishn Chum to be sure you gather plenty into your slick, then make a good net spread to catch a bunch of baitsh. Every time you miss, the minnows will stay back farther and longer, making the job harder. Present conditions allow us to catch snook, reds and even trout often in the same spots, but not always at the same times. Fish tend to travel with their own species. They use similar paths but move around at dierent tide stages. We might catch snook rst, then a trout here and there. Maybe, if we are lucky, well get a urry of redsh action as a school cruises by. Flounder, jacks, ladysh, sharks all come by. Try to hold down the boat noise, banging and commo tion. Curiosity can help attract sh, but loud noises scare them. Bird shadows also scare feeding sh away; dont feed birds when chumming. A few weaker minnows can attract and stimulate feeding sh, but too many will attract gulls that scare sh away. If birds show up, just stop. Its very hard to un-train them from free food. This is the same problems we have with dolphins they are very smart and love free meals. Dolphins actually teach each other that shermen are a food source. This learned behavior is a big problem for us today. Flipper doesnt need to follow size or bag limits. They are eating a lot of the sh we release snook, trout, redsh and more. Consider how many thousands of eggs it takes to replace a sh. Now how long would it take that almost-slot sh to grow into slot? We all know that if we carelessly kill the sh we throw back, they will not be there for you tomorrow. Well, feeding them to dolphins is also killing them. Just like with birds, if dolphins move in we usually end up moving. They are not going to leave free meals, and its not a behavior I want to encourage. Were seeing a lot more trout. These sh will often take baits deeply, and a gill-hooked trout is as good as dead. Circle hooks are a great way to limit or eliminate gut-hooking. Personally, I choose circle hooks for most of our shing. They require some adjustment if youre used to jerking the rod when you get a hit. However, they are easy for a novice. The trick is simply to hold your rod still when you get a bite, then reel rapidly until you feel solid resistance. Then pull to put a bend in your rod and hang on. You must allow the sharp hook point to make direct contact before you pull, or youll miss them every time. A pull is recommended, not a sharp jerk, especially if you are using braided line. You will need to pull harder with mono because it has much more stretch. I like braids for everything but trolling mackerel, when I need a little stretch to prevent tearing hooks out. We slipped out into the nearshore Gulf on a recent trip and found a few big Spanish macks and some cobia. We also caught lots of smaller jacks, blue runners and some sharks. The schools of minnows were not visible, but bigger sh are moving in and hungry. We should have more of them with every moon cycle. Enjoy the good action now, because the weather will cool down and chill our catching next month. October could be our very best shing and catching of the whole year. We have almost every species active and feeding and open seasons on most of them. Go shing if you can.Capt. Van Hubbard is a highly respected outdoor writer and shing guide.

Page 19 October 2, 2014 WaterLine photo by Matt StevensChris Hughes of Englewood shows o a keeper snook he caught on a swimbait at El Jobean.The sound of snook busting bait on the surface surrounds you, ranging from the soprano of smaller sh to the booming bass of bruising breeders. As if thats not enough to get your heart racing especially when it resonates right underneath you wait until your lure gets bumped. Welcome to late-night snook shing at El Jobean. The historic old train trestle that was converted into a shing pier is one of the premier piers to target linesiders in Southwest Florida. The fall bite has already kicked into gear, and should get progressively better until winter. Its the perfect time to toss articial baits for some exciting angling. And for knowledgeable El Jobean anglers, its all about the swim baits: Quite possibly the perfect lure for this type of shing. Swimbaits are advan tageous at El Jobean because their weight holds up to the strong current, allowing them to stay in the strike zone where other lures cant reach. The other selling point is their ease of use. Swimbaits can simply be cast out and reeled in with a moderately slow retrieve and generate plenty of strikes. While there are a wide variety of swimbaits to choose from, my personal favorite has always been the Storm WildEye swim shad. Other solid options are D.O.A.s Bait Buster or Swimmin Mullet, Berkeleys Powerbait pre-rigged swim shad or Calcuttas Flashfoil SwimShad. As for color, go with what youre comfortable with. Green, white, purple or any combination of those colors have been productive recently. As for matching the hatch, the sh seemed more concerned with size rather than color. Most of the aforementioned swimbaits are available in a 3-inch model, which more closely resembles the size of the bait these snook are feeding on. Choose those over the bigger versions; but keep them in mind as the season progresses and the sh start feeding on larger mullet. The trick to getting these baits to the snook lies in working the shadow line. The faint glow of the lights from the bridge on State Road 776 casts a shadow of the pier onto the water when youre standing with your back to the bridge. This creates ideal conditions for shing the incoming tide, which comes from the direction of the bridge and ows past the pier. The shadow line extends about 10 feet out from the pier, and it is in this darker water the snook lie in wait to ambush their prey. Work your casts parallel to the pier, landing your lure as close to the pilings as possible before starting your retrieve. As your reel, the current will carry your bait away from the pier as it moves through the shadow line. A majority of strikes will come inside or just outside of the shadow line. To help keep your bait at the desired depth, it helps to lean over the railing while keeping your rodtip down during the retrieve. Simply reeling the lure in works, or you can sh it more sporadically, almost like a jig, letting it fall close to the bottom or bounce o of it before jigging it back up again. Pier trolling is another eective option using swimbaits. Flip a short, underhand cast within the shadow line. Start walking slowly down the pier, holding your rod over the side and letting the bait trail several feet behind you, jigging it occasionally. This is a great way to cover a lot of ground, but it wont work if the pier is crowded. Fortunately, the late-night pier circuit (from midnight into the wee hours of the morning) doesnt see a lot of trac. And thats when the shing is the best. One more option to consider at El Jobean is casting across the channel at the end of the pier toward the other section of the trestle, the one thats not accessible by foot (well, legally, anyway). Keep your cast at a safe distance from the other section of the trestle, but let the current carry it in that direction as you retrieve. Youll often get strikes near there, or as you cross over the middle of the channel. This technique is also best utilized late at night when theres little or no boat trac in the channel. While using swimbaits is a highly eective method of catching snook, there is a downside. Swimbaits come equipped with a single hook, making it easier for jumping snook to shake free. So be prepared to lose your share of sh. And for the ones you dont lose, make sure youve got a pier net handy to land them. Fall snook season is open until Dec. 1. A special snook stamp is required to harvest these sh. An angler is allowed to keep one sh per day, which must measure between 28 and 33 inches with a pinched tail. Until next time, hook em up and ght em hard. Fish on, fellow anglers.Matt Stevens is an avid saltwater angler and an award-winning outdoor writer.

Page 21 October 2, 2014 CAUGHT REDCLAWEDState marine ocers interrupted a freshly cooked stone crab lunch aboard a Lower Keys lobster boat Sept. 17, according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report. A stone-crab claw and bits of broken crab shell were found when FWC Ocers Jimmy Johnson and Jason Richards boarded the Ketchem Plenty commercial boat, spotted north of the Barracouta Keys, about six miles west of Key West. The vessels captain and crew still had melted butter on their faces during the entire boarding, said an agency spokesman. Stonecrab season ended May 15. According to the FWC report, when ocers aboard a 36-foot patrol boat approached the moving lobster boat around 3 p.m., the boat captain turned his vessel away from the ocers while he emptied a bucket overboard. The mate also discarded something from the boat, the ocers reported. The boat held a propane tank and burner, and scattered bits of what appeared to be cooked stone-crab claws. A whole claw was found beneath a cabin window. After reportedly denying any wrongdo ing, boat captain David Lee Boggs of Big Pine Key then admitted they had cooked and eaten some crab claws, then tried to dump the remains. Ocers then told the crew to pull several more traps along their trapline. Mr. Boggs pulled nine traps, only three of which had the required FWC trap tags, the report says. Boggs was cited for conservation violations including failure to have required registration tags on six traps, interference with an FWC ocer, possession of crab claws in a closed season, and violations of required signage to display trap colors and numbers.SHRIMP FARMERS STRUGGLEFarmers in Myanmar are calling for nancial support to save the businesses of breeding shrimp, which are going downwards dramat ically. Just a few years ago, the country was one of the worlds major exporters of farmed shrimp. According to government statistics, Myanmar produced just 200 to 300 metric tons of shrimp last year not enough to even supply their domestic market. Business leaders with the Myanmar Shrimp Association stressed the urgent need for a strategy with systematic nancial support to save the business in despair. Industry players have called on the government to seek international assistance and upgrade the technology for shrimp breeding sector. According to the sources, the shrimp hatching sector has suered loss for two successive years due to dis ease, dramatically decreasing production of baby shrimp from 300 million in 2012 to 30 million in 2013 and 20 million in 2014. The number of shrimp hatching rms has also reduced from about 20 in 2012 to around 15 now. Only four or ve hatching rms out of the 15 can operate the business currently, the sources said, warning that if this situation continues, the shrimp hatching sector will fall seriously.WHO WOULD FAKE A SHARK ATTACK?Marine biology experts including a Texas scientist are calling out an Australian activist for allegedly faking a shark attack for publicity. Elissa Sursara, a 26-year-old environmental activist from Australia, said she felt privileged after being bitten by what was believed to be a small shark last year, The New Zealand Herald reported. I think theyre amazing. I feel privileged to have had such an encounter. Not many people can say they have had an encounter like that, Sursara said, adding that the attack made her more obsessed with sharks than ever. Sursara posted photos of stitches she received resulting from the attack on her Instagram prole, leading social media watchers to question whether the accident was faked. That includes Drew Scerbo, a marine biologist at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, who said that Photoshop analysis on the image that circulated through social media conrmed it was doctored. While I was trying to determine the possible species involved in the alleged incident, I noticed that several of the surgical staples in the image were identical, Scerbo said. Using a clone stamp tool and free transformation application, I can verify that there are four pairs of identical staples in the same image. He said lying about an attack only harmed the conservation goals we are desperately trying to accomplish.ITS IN YOUR BLOODA persistent chemical formerly used in Scotchgard still contaminates most sh in U.S. rivers and the Great Lakes despite a phase-out a dozen years ago, a new federal study shows. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency researchers found peruorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) in all of the 157 sh sampled from nearshore waters in the ve Great Lakes and in 73 percent from 162 rivers. The study, the largest of its kind in freshwater sh, suggests that eating bass, trout, walleye and catsh could be a major source of exposure for anglers and their families. The chemical remains widespread in wildlife, people and water around the world. PFOS and other per uorinated compounds are used in oil and water resistant coatings for pots and pans, clothes, paper, carpet and ame-retardant foams. The 3M Company, the major manufacturer of PFOS, voluntarily stopped its production in 2002 after scientists discovered that it was building up in water, wildlife and people. Nevertheless, every single human being we test has levels of PFOS in them, said Craig Butt, a Duke University chemist who was not involved in the study. The compound doesnt break down in light, it doesnt oxidize. Once its in the environment its not going anywhere.NO EYES, NO NEED FOR CIRCADIAN RHYTHMEyeless Mexican tetra sh lose their circadian metabolic rhythms when they live in dark caves, but surface-dwelling varieties of the same species (Astyanax mexicanus), which retain the capacity for sight, continue to respond to light and dark cycles, according to research published last week in the scientic journal PLOS ONE. The sh occur naturally in several forms adapted to living in caves; all are descendants of a surface-dwelling ancestor and vary from partially to completely blind. The cave-adapted sh also show a heightened reliance on taste and feel to nd food or navigate and are better at nding bottom-dwelling prey. The adaptations are important to survival: Cavesh washed to the surface are more vulnerable to predators, while surface-dwellers swept underground by ooding rivers struggle to nd food. Previous studies had reported signicant dierences in the meta bolic rates of cave versus surface sh, which led Damian Moran of Lund University in Sweden and his colleagues to examine why. They found that in constant darkness, circadian rhythms in surface sh increased their metabolic rate and oxygen consumption during the subjective daytime, during which the animals used 38 percent more energy than blind cavesh. When in their natural day/light cycles, the lack of a circadian rhythm helped cavesh use 27 percent less energy than the surface sh that ramped up their metabolism in the light. The loss of daily metabolic rhythms may be an energy-ecient adaptation to life in the dark, the authors suggested.ROBOT OCTOPUS TAKING OVER THE WORLDResearchers from the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas have succeeded in taking a robot octopus to the ocean for the rst time. The robot, developed as part of the European Commission funded OCTOPUS program, can swim using a sculling motion, and can also slowly move across the ocean oor. The research was presented at the International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems in Chicago. The project is coordinated between six universities across four dierent countries, and eventually aims for the robot to be able to move across several dierent substrates, as well as being able to coordinate all eight arms to perform tasks. As it currently stands, the robot has eight exible silicon tentacles that are connected with a piece of silicon webbing between each of them. The webbing allows the robot octopus to travel at nearly twice the speed as it can without it. It is also more than 25 percent more ecient with the web than without. The octopus oers inspiration for the design and development of new soft actuation systems, new sensors, smart material, modeling and control systems, the researchers said. Some believe the robot octopus could be a useful tool for observing aquatic life in its natural habitat.JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THEY COULDNT GET ANY DUMBER What did the ocean say to the beach?

Page 22 October 2, 2014 Once upon a time there was a sweet, inno cent wildlife rehabilitation center that loved nothing more than to rescue, rehabilitate, and release injured and orphaned wildlife. Representatives of this magical facility skipped through the forest, scooping up hurt animals and making them all better. This facility never had any needs unmet. They had all the volun teers, supplies, food, medications, sta and money they could possibly desire. I wish I could write that story, but Walt has the market cornered on singing mice and sewing birds in the land of plenty. Then there is the tale about the villainous condo developer who steals the land right out from under the well-meaning volunteers, who only want to help the very animals that this heinous scoundrel and his cronies have harmed. The developers come in and cut down trees, uproot dens and destroy nests, causing havoc and mayhem at every turn for the unsuspecting animals that were the original inhabitants of the areas designated for improvement. But as heartrending as a new chapter in the never-ending FernGully saga might be, I cant write that story either. How about the one where the corrupt government ocials take money from the highest bidder and close the orphanage so they can turn it into a parking garage? Brokerage oce? Private men-only smoking club? Im not really sure where that one goes at all. Someone with an intense conspiracy theory bent suggested the beginnings of that one, but never really got to the point of where it was leading. No money was exchanged and no favors were granted, so that story is out as well. Instead, lets begin at the beginning. On June 5, 1996, Peace River Wildlife Center moved from its founders overcrowded back porch to an unused area at the far west end of Marion Avenue in Punta Gorda. The city gave PRWC a 20-year lease and the entire fee was paid by an anonymous benefactor. The prop erty boundaries were determined at that time by an aerial GIS map and were undisputed by the then-owner of the adjacent land, PGI Incorporated. Cages were built, prefab build ings were brought in, and the volunteers that had started PRWC in 1982 were able to assist many more animals than ever before. Birds that were unable to be released were kept on educational display to the public instead of having to be euthanized. In March 2005, PRWC asked the city if we could expand our back fence line by a few feet. When we were granted the additional 1,045 square feet, Habitat for Humanity came in and helped us build some new pre-release cages. Grande Harbor Group closed on a warranty deed in April 2005 to purchase the (buildable) land at the corner of Ponce de Leon Parkway and West Marion Avenue. Although a survey had to have been obtained for this transaction, PRWC was not informed that our facilities were on private property at that time. Early in 2014, PRWC approached the city of Punta Gorda about the possibility of building a new hospital and surgical facility. Our current buildings are old and not in very good shape. We were also considering shrinking the footprint of the buildings combining the separate hospital, surgery and laundry shed so we could have more room for habitats and cages for the animals. It was at this time that we were informed that part of our facility may be on private property. The initial inclination that the back corner of a walkway, about 2 percent of our facility, might need to be recongured soon turned into the realiza tion that more than 90 percent of the entire compound is on private property. We immediately halted expansion plans. We have been idling while waiting for a reso lution to this conundrum. The city has been very supportive. They are trying to help us resolve the issue with the developer, but also looking at other city-owned property to which they could help us relocate if that becomes a necessity. The developer has been respectful and helpful. He is trying to work with us also, but he is a businessman and rightfully has to do what is in the best interests of his assets, investors, and eventual condo purchasers. So where does that leave PRWC? Right where we have been for almost 20 years. Our current lease is good through June 2016, and the developer has stated that he will honor that contract. We are still working with him and the city to nd an arrangement that will be in the best interest of all parties involved, including the innocent animals caught up in this mistake. PRWC is still taking in injured and orphaned wildlife. We are still rehabilitating more than 2,000 animals each year. We still play host to more than 75,000 people each year who come to visit the more than 100 unreleasable birds on display to the public. We are still in need of support to continue our mission and continue it we will. On Tuesday, Oct. 7, Opus restaurant (201 W. Marion Ave., Punta Gorda) will host our rst fundraiser of the season starting at 5:30 p.m. Our rst annual Fall Fur and Feathers Fat Tuesday will include hors doeuvres, entertainment, auctions, resident adoptions, an open bar and a chance to get your photo taken with the star of our show, Luna, the leucistic screech owl.

Recipe from All-Fish-Seafood-Recipes.comA clip-n-save seafood recipe provided by MANGO TILAPIA U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service photoPink corals on the Palmyra Atoll in the Pacic.Ocean preserve to be worlds largestThousands of miles o Americas shores, an ocean preserve ush with rare seabirds, turtles and marine mammals will grow to roughly three times the size of California under a memorandum that President Barack Obama signed Sept. 25. The expanded Pacic Remote Islands Marine National Monument will cover 490,000 square miles, making it the largest marine preserve in the world, the White House said. The move puts the remote waters surrounding a collection of islands o-limits to drilling and most shing in a bid to protect fragile underwater life. This really is a matter of stewardship. Its also a matter of generational responsibility, Secretary of State John Kerry said. We have a responsibility to make sure our kids and their families and the future has the same ocean to serve it in the same way as we have not to be abused, but to preserve and utilize. Millions of marine animals live in the bio-rich expanse included by the new monu ment, which will also add new protections for more than 130 seamounts underwater mountains, where rare or undiscovered species are frequently found. Commercial shing, deep-sea mining and other extraction of underwater resources will be banned, but recreational shing will still be allowed, in an attempt to preserve the publics access to federal areas. The move to broaden the George W. Bush-era preserve comes as Obama seeks to show concrete presidential action to protect the environment, despite rm opposition in Congress to new environmental legislation. At the United Nations this week, Obama announced new U.S. commitments to help other nations deal with the eects of climate change, as world leaders seek to galvanize support for a major global climate treaty to be nalized next year in Paris. Yet the expansion falls far short of what Obama could have done in the Pacic had he used the full extent of his powers. Maritime law gives the U.S. control up to 200 nautical miles from the coast. Under Bush, the U.S. set aside waters extending about 50 miles from the shore of the remote, U.S.-adminis tered islands in the south-central Pacic, thou sands of miles from the American mainland. The islands sit between Hawaii and Amer ican Samoa and are divided into ve regions. Obama is extending the preserve to the full 200 miles but only for three of the ve regions. Had Obama expanded the preserve in all ve regions, he could have protected more than 780,000 square miles, according to a geographic analysis by the Pew Charitable Trusts. Still, environmental groups cheered the announcement and said they hoped it would spur other nations to take similar steps to preserve the worlds oceans. The president acted expeditiously, while the area is still largely pristine and undis turbed, said Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council. Obama signed the memorandum on Thursday, the White House said, shortly before the president returns to Washington after three days of meetings with world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly. Obama rst signaled his intent to expand the monument in June and asked for input on the nal bound aries from shermen, lawmakers and scien tists. Ocials said they received more than 170,000 electronic comments on the proposal. While a major symbolic victory for environ mentalists, who long urged Obama to take this step, the designation will have limited practical implications. Thats because little shing or drilling are taking place in the region even without the new protections.

Also found over sand and mud. In winter, trout seek deeper waters over dark bottoms, which they often find in the canal mouths. In summer, trout generally move into the nearshore Gulf. L EGAL GEAR: Hook and line or castnet. FOOD VALUE: Very good; must be iced immediately or the flesh may be overly soft. FISHING METHODS: The most popular bait for trout is live shrimp, most often fished under a popping cork. Shrimpor baitfish-im itating soft plastic lures also work well. MirrOlures (pronounced MaryLou by many old-time Florida Crackers) are also tried-andtrue trout baits. Many anglers prefer white lures for trout, though when the water is stained brown darker colors may work better. NOTES: Trout are moderately delicate and often die in livewells. When the bite is good, its not uncommon to catch and release 50 or more in a day. In those circumstances, its best to mash your hook barbs down and release the fish gently. Not related to freshwater trout at all; actually a member of the drum family. FISH PROFILE SPOTTED SEATROUT Antarctic fish live with ice in their veinsIn the icy waters of the Antarctic, most of the sh have special proteins in their blood that act like antifreeze. The proteins bind to ice crystals, keeping them small to prevent the formation of sh popsicles. New research in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reports that these antifreeze crystals have one downside: They dont melt when temperatures warm. In the relatively warm waters of the Antarctic summer, the researchers found, the sh still had ice crystals in their blood. When ice stays solid above its usual melting point, its superheated and this may be the rst example of the phenomenon observed in nature. So while they keep the shs liquids from freezing, the proteins also keep those controlled ice crystals from melting. If the ice crystals dont disappear in the summer, where do they go? That remains unclear. Its possible, the researchers report, that a lifelong accumulation of ice crystals could be dangerous, or even fatal but for now, they havent observed any obvious eects. It does make sense that there would be some downsides to an ever-increasing number of antifreeze crystals in ones blood. If the sh really do spend their entire lives ghting to keep the crystals at bay, the researchers wrote in their study, it would be a fascinating evolu tionary tale: This adaptation had made the family of sh great at surviving in Antarctica compared to other species, but might cause a host of health problems in return. Rachel Feltman The Washington Post Photo providedA Weddell seal with its catch, an Antarctic toothsh. The toothshs blood contains natural antifreeze not that it helps in this situation. 4 6-ounce snapper fillets Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 1/4 cup cornmeal 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 3 tbsp olive oil 1/3 cup butter 3/4 cup chopped hazelnuts 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice Season snapper fillets with salt and pepper.

Page 28 October 2, 2014 Page 28 October 2, 2014 Scientists probe deep secrets of the Dry TortugasIn the remotest part of the Florida Keys, 70 miles west of Key West and accessible only by boat or seaplane, theres an underwater world lled with habitats as happening as Miamis hottest nightclubs. Several species of grouper, snapper and other reef sh congregate to the Dry Tortugas in masses when they are adults. Many species do so at specic spots and at specic times. The reason: To mate. On Monday, a group of scientists, a teacher, a marine sanctuary superintendent and two ROVs left Key West aboard the Nancy Foster federal research ship for a 14-day mission to the isolated area where the only buildings are a Civil War-era fort and a lighthouse. They are continuing studies, monitoring and mapping of a magical and still-mysterious marine world that has been closed o with great controversy to shing, anchoring and, in some parts, diving since 2001. Everybody always wants to know: Wheres the science? said Sean Morton, superinten dent of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanc tuary, which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Because of funding, its only the sixth such research trip since 2005. Time on the Nancy Foster, one of NOAAs 16 research vessels, is competitive and precious. Chief sanctuary scientist Scott Donahue said he has crammed as many projects as he can into the itinerary, including sh tagging, mapping of the sea oor for structure and sh abun dance and ROV exploration of Rileys Hump, the deepest part of the sanctuary with a maximum depth of about 1,700 feet. The purpose is to learn more about the sh populations, behaviors, corals and sea oor structure and to provide more data and infor mation to justify the continuing existence of two large ecological reserves that closed down 151 square miles of prime shing: 91 around the northern area known as Sherwoods Forest and another 60 in the southern portion around Rileys Hump. This mission also is trying to help determine if recommendations made last month by the Sanc tuary Advisory Council to move the boundaries of the southern reserve are scientically sound. Part of the reason we keep doing the science: Are we protecting the right areas? Morton said. Its all part of a comprehensive review that formally began in September 2011 with a sanctuary condition report and is scheduled to be completed in 2016. Before the 2,800-nautical-square-mile sanctuary was established in 1990, there was a bitter battle with independent Keys residents distrustful of allowing the federal government to regulate the waters that provided many their livelihoods. In 2001, shing was allowed in most of it, but there were 23 small no-take zones that still angered many. So when the sanctuary managers proposed closing o another 151 square miles of prime shing ground in the Dry Tortugas, another battle ensued. It was worth the ght for scientists, who said protecting the spawning grounds and nurseries in the Dry Tortugas called the crown jewel of the reef was deemed crit ical for the sustainability of important reef sh species not only in this area but also Florida locations upstream. For decades, the area was being exploited by shermen and damaged by large cargo freighters, which were dropping their large anchors on the corals and dumping their waste into the waters. Most of whats known about the Dry Tortugas marine world has been discov ered through a collaborative eort that has included scientists from the National Park Service, which oversees Dry Tortugas National Park; the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, and the University of Miamis Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, led by marine biology and sheries professor Jerry Ault. In 2007, the state established a 46-mile Research Natural Area (basically what the feds call an ecological reserve) within Dry Tortugas National Park, which includes 100 square miles of marine waters, seven small islands and the national historic site Fort Jeerson. The goal was to protect shallow water habitats and reef species near the two existing ecological reserves, which all were believed to be inter connected. The state gave them ve years to prove their case to see if it would stay a reserve, Morton said. It was all guns out to try to characterize corals, birds, turtles and sh, sh, sh. It took a whole bunch of people working together. But ve years later, (FWC) said: OK, youve proven your case.

Page 29 October 2, 2014 Page 29 October 2, 2014 ve-year report on the Research Natural Area found that both abundance and size increased in red grouper, mutton snapper, yellowtail snapper and hogsh at or above legal size of capture inside the protected area, while the measure ments decreased or stayed the same in nearby areas of the Tortugas region open to shing. The report concluded that protection given these reef sh in this critical habitat was an important component for the recovery of their populations. The report also strengthened the theory of interconnectivity between the reserves thanks to an acoustically tagged mutton snapper. We have sh listening stations (like cell towers) all over to see the movement back and forth between the Tortugas, Donahue said. We could see the most famous mutton snapper in the world. It hangs out in the North Tortugas reserve and three times in one summer goes down to Rileys Hump on the same lunar cycles to spawn, spawn, spawn. One FWC biologist had nicknamed this migration corridor the sexual highway. Longtime commercial sherman Manny Herrera said he is among the many anglers in the Keys who are skeptical of the science that has been provided in the past. But I didnt accept being part of the working group (involved in the sanctuary review) because Im an anti-conservationist, he said. Im very much for conservation. You see what happens in places like Japan that dont have sheries because they were not managed and taken care of. Herrera said he believes the preserves in the Tortugas are successful, especially because of their remote location with superior water quality and limited human presence. Higher gas prices also have helped reduce shing in the area. Hed like to see at least one other true reserve with no users and good law enforcement in another part of the Keys as a test. Chris Bergh, who led the working group on regulations and marine zoning that Herrera participated in for the sanctuarys comprehensive review, said there has not been much resistance to the Tortugas reserves now because they have not unduly harmed peoples businesses or recreation. The current battles have been over the protection of other habitats in the Keys where there is great demand by commercial and recreational shermen, divers and boaters. Evaluation of the Dry Tortugas reserves can help make the case for the importance of other no-take zones in environmentally sensitive waters where the marine world also is battling climate change, ocean acidication and pollution. During this research trip on the Nancy Foster, divers, ROVs and high-tech sonar equip ment will gather information that later will be analyzed. In one project, scientists will go underwater to perform surgery on sh, Donahue said. They will insert acoustic tags and sew them back up. In another project, a Mohawk ROV will be used to help answer a question Morton said he hears often: Why are you protecting the super-deep areas in the Tortugas South Reserve that go down about 1,700 feet? The ROV is going where divers cannot. The Nancy Foster will methodically cruise back and forth on the oceans surface as if its mowing the lawn as a multibeam sonar creates a high-denition map of the ocean oor by shooting a sound wave down at the bottom of the ocean and listening to its reection. Simultaneously, another machine that is like a sh nder on steroids is superimposing information about the marine life over an ocean-oor structure map. This is a collaborative eort to look for critical bathymetric features that sh might be using as cues for an aggregation site, Donahue said. Morton added: This information doesnt have the wow factor of sh tagging and ROVs, but its what really tells the story: What is the place and what is the type of habitat? What is the depth? What are the features? Is it at ledges or deep drop-os? This time the science party is particularly interested in the west side of the Tortugas bank, where large snowy grouper hang out. This western area is currently not protected, but the Sanctuary Advisory Committee has recommended it be added to the no-take zone. In exchange, the committee also recommends giving a southern portion of the reserve back to shermen. Theres a perception in the community that the sanctuary only takes and never gives back, said Bergh, the Florida Keys program director for The Nature Conservancy. Id like to see the sanctuary prove that wrong. As new information becomes available, the sanctuary can adapt, and it does listen to science and the public. The Dry Tortugas are well-known for producing large specimens of prized sh, like this cubera snapper. Call 941-429-311:_to list your boat to 'a 217D O D _.7746 7?.T-'.''1w p.a? In .icerw FMSNor,;.?

(AP) A record number of American crocodile hatchlings were counted in Everglades National Park this year, providing hope that restoration eorts are helping the once-endangered species, researchers said last week. University of Florida researcher Frank Mazzotti has been monitoring the crocodiles since 1978, a few years after the reptile received federal endangered species status. He and a team of researchers caught 962 hatchlings this year in the park, nearly doubling the 554 found in 2013. The animals apparent rebound led to the governments reclassication of the species as threatened in 2007. The crocodiles decline is blamed on a network of canals dug into the Everglades in the early 20th century to drain marsh water for agriculture. Restoration eorts have plugged some of the holes in the park, allowing for better water quality. Mazzotti said that although there isnt deni tive proof that restoration eorts and the latest count are correlated, it is a good indication. What we hope is the lesson is that ecosystem restoration eorts can work, Mazzotti said in a news release, adding that crocodiles are good indicators of waterway health.

Page 31 October 2, 2014 TREASURE ISLAND, Fla. (AP) The peren nial Florida debate over whether to protect boaters or manatees is heating up again in Pinellas County, where state ocials are proposing rules that would slow trac along the Intracoastal Waterway. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is reconsidering speed limits because of a rise in manatee deaths. O cials have identied 21 areas along Pinellas waterways that might warrant half-mile slow speed zones. The public will be allowed to comment on changes to the 46-mile highway for boaters, which runs from the mouth of the Anclote River to Egmont Key. The environmentalists would love to make it all a no-wake zone, said Mark LaPrade, a longtime Pinellas boat dealer and marine activist who sat on a county committee that helped formulate the proposed changes. But in the end, we made a lot of compromises that I think will be good for boaters and help protect the manatees. LaPrade opposes the proposed slow speed zone south of the Corey Causeway because he doesnt see a need. It will slow down trac for no good reason, he said. State ocials disagree. The number of manatees found dead in south county waters increased from three in the 1990s to 24 from 2000 to 2012. One way to protect manatees is to look at boating trac, said Scott Calleson, a sh eries and wildlife biologist with the wildlife commission. This is a comprehensive look at the whole Intracoastal Waterway, but the only area the (restrictions) will have an impact on travel time is that area south of the Pasadena Bridge (Corey Causeway). Johns Pass already has some restrictions in the west and southeast. The county committee unanimously supported the wildlife commis sions preliminary proposal to add slow speed zones there. Additional restrictions are also proposed for the Anclote River. Frank Chivas, who owns two waterfront restaurants the Salt Rock Grill in Indian Shores and the Island Way Grill in Clearwater said he supports the new manatee protec tion zones. We have to protect and preserve the things that make Florida special. Others, including local business owner Mark Hubbard, said the new regulations could aect boating safety. If you start putting up slow speed and no-wake zones all over the Intracoastal, people are going to start running up the coast in the open Gulf, and not every boater is ready for that, said Hubbard, whose family runs a eet of shing boats out of Johns Pass. That can be a real issue in rough weather and may lead to an increase in boating accidents.New rules would slow Pinellas boat traffic Photo providedWith more manatees and more boaters sharing the same amount of water, its no surprise there have been more encounters.

Page 32 October 2, 2014 Your water is older than the sun Some of the water molecules in your drinking glass were created more than 4.5 billion years ago, according to new research. That makes them older than the Earth, older than the solar system even older than the sun itself. In a study published Sept. 25 in Science, researchers say the distinct chemical signa ture of the water on Earth and throughout the solar system could occur only if some of that water formed before the swirling disk of dust and gas gave birth to the planets, moons, comets and asteroids. This primordial water makes up 30 percent to 50 percent of the water on Earth, the researchers estimate. Its pretty amazing that a signicant fraction of water on Earth predates the sun and the solar system, said study leader Ilse Cleeves, an astronomer at the University of Michigan. This nding suggests that water, a key ingredient of life, may be common in young planetary systems across the universe, Cleeves and her colleagues say. Scientists are still not entirely sure how water arrived on Earth. The part of the protoplanetary disk in which our planet formed was too hot for liquid or ice water to exist, and so the planet was born dry. Most experts believe the Earths water came from ice in comets and asteroids that formed in a cooler environment, and later collided with our planet. But this theory leads to more questions. Among them: Where did the water preserved in the comets and asteroids come from? To nd out, scientists turned to chemistry. Here on Earth, about one in every 3,000 molecules of water is made with a deute rium atom instead of a hydrogen atom. A deuterium atom is similar to a hydrogen atom except that its nucleus contains a proton and a neutron, instead of a lone proton. (Both atoms also contain a single electron.) That makes deuterium twice as heavy as hydrogen, which is why water molecules made with deuterium atoms (HDO) are known as heavy water. The ratio of deuterium to hydrogen throughout the universe was set by the Big Bang. But for water in the solar system, the proportion is slightly higher. Water with a high deuterium content can only form under specic conditions. The environment needs to be very cold, and there needs to be enough energy to power the reaction that binds hydrogen, deuterium and oxygen. Over the past several decades, researchers have come up with two possible and competing explanations of how this heavy water took up residence in our solar system. The rst is that it came from interstellar water ice that formed in the huge cloud of gas that gave birth to our sun and the solar system. Stellar nurseries can be found throughout the universe, and they are rich in both heavy water and regular water (H20), the researchers said. The second possibility is that the violence and energy of star birth ripped apart that interstellar water, and its building blocks got reprocessed within the protoplanetary disk that would eventu ally coalesce into the planets and other heavenly bodies. For the past several years, Cleeves has been trying to determine just how much energy was able to penetrate the cold, dense region of the planet-forming disks around stars. This study was kind of a side project, she said. We realized that if the amount of energy in the disk is as low as we think, that means the water in our solar system couldnt have formed here, and it had to come from somewhere else. Using computer models, she and her colleagues concluded that the disk was certainly cold enough for heavy water to form. But the gas would have been too dense to allow X-rays to enter, and the solar winds and magnetic elds would have had no trouble deecting cosmic rays. Without these energy sources, Cleeves said, deuterium and oxygen couldnt have formed heavy water. But it would have been easy for cosmic rays to penetrate the gas cloud before it collapsed into the protoplanetary disk, she said. There, those rays could have helped heavy water get made. Ted Bergin, an astronomer at the Univer sity of Michigan and co-author of the Science study, said the results suggest there may be an abundance of ancient water in young planetary systems throughout the universe. Most stars and their solar systems are formed in water heavy stellar nurseries similar to the one that birthed our sun. If interstellar water can survive the trauma of our suns birth, it is likely it can survive the birth of other stars as well. They are all made out of very cold mate rial, with water, and that is being provided to planets as they are being born, he said.
