Charlotte SunAND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000 If you listen to talk radio, or watch the talking heads on TV, you may believe you understand what ails our schools. Quite likely, if you got your information from these sources, your perception of our schools is wrong. Some of the discussion about performance in our schools is about race. In whispered tones, people will point to the percentage of blacks and Hispanics in their school sys tem, suggesting these nonwhites hide the superior performance of the white students. This is not said loudly at least by those who want to run for ofce, or who hope to keep their job. Is this a fair perception of Florida schools? Floridas Hispanic students outper formed the national average on the SAT test. The mean score for Florida Hispanic students in critical reading is 29 points higher than the national Hispanic average. Florida also leads the nation with the highest percentage of Hispanic students graduating of any state. In fact, the Hispanic high school graduation rate in Florida is higher than the white graduation rate. Florida also has the greatest number of College Advanced Placement grades three or higher received by black students, when compared to all other states. The black graduation rate is ranked seventh in the nation. While white students generally perform better than students of color, these results on the SAT test and the AP tests would suggest that Florida is doing something right. Race is not a legitimate excuse for a school or a school systems mediocre performance. Common wisdom is that weve poured massive amounts of money into our school systems. Common wisdom is that because of the chokehold of the teachers union, the amount of money we pay our teachers is absolutely crazy, and weve gotten nothing in exchange for our increased investment. Is common wisdom correct? In 1983, the starting pay for a teacher in Sarasota County was $13,386. Now, starting wages are $40,264. It certainly looks like teacher pay is out of control. Actually, if you take the 1983 starting salary and multiply it by the ination rate for each year, teacher pay should have grown to $40,362, or almost exactly what the pay actually is. Our teachers have gotten raises only equivalent to ination over the last 30 years. Did that match your perception? Common wisdom is that we are just throwing money at our school systems, building too much overhead. Common wisdom says this increased money is not the answer for student achievement. Is what we perceive to be reality actually a false understanding of the facts? In 1994, Sarasota County spent $5,604 to educate each student. In 2014, that had swollen to $9,259. Sounds like a big boost. Accounting for ination, the 1994 gure would have grown to $9,076 almost the exact same as what we are actually spending per student. In other words, our education system in Florida has not had lots of money thrown at it over the last 20 years. The average child, adjusted for ination, has almost exactly the same amount of money spent on him as the prior generation. There are few subjects more important than teaching our children. There are few subjects with so much misinformation and so many ideas we know to be facts, but are actually wrong. I wish there was one person running for governor, or one political party, who would help to lead an intelligent discussion about our children, their education and our future.

Email him at perceptions DEEP CREEK A man could face serious prison time after authorities said he neglected the elderly and contributed to the death of a woman while he owned and ran a local assisted-living facility. Adolphus Al Davis, 73, was arrested late Tuesday night at his residence on the 1100 block of Melville Road part of a six-unit facility he was licensed to operate as The Four Seasons ALF Community. The states Agency for Health Care Administration has issued an emergency suspension order for the assisted-living facility, which opened in February 2012. Ofcials with AHCA, the licensor and regulator of Florida care facilities, visited the site a few weeks before forcing the place to shut down in May. They found nine decient practices, an AHCA report shows. When ofcials came back, they found things hadnt improved. According to the same AHCA report, a resident with dementia was being locked in her room so she couldnt get out, and one of the only two staff members there besides Davis hadnt been given a proper background check and was underqualied to work at the facility. An inquiry also was conducted by the states Medicaid Fraud Control Unit an agency working under the Florida Attorney General that Death spurs chargeBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERReport: Senior facility owner jailed for neglectNEGLECT | 6 See you around, JerryPUNTA GORDA Jerry Presseller quickly greets a reporter at his popular downtown eatery, Pressellers Restaurant, then spins and darts back into the kitchen. Sorry, I just have to nish up with a lunch order, he says apologetically. The reporter begins snapping pictures of the man who announced Wednesday that he is closing the restaurant at 209 W. Olympia Ave. Im just trying to catch him in action, the reporter said to a waiter standing close by. That shouldnt be hard to do, replied the waiter, Steve Price. Hes always working. He never stands still. At 72, Presseller appears to have the energy of a man 20 years younger. His steps are quick and his words sharp. But, after more than 50 years in the restaurant business, Presseller said its time to slow down. Earlier this month, he sold the business to a new owner, who plans to reopen in November as an Italian bistro. Presseller is not ready to completely call it quits, though. He tried that in 2010 and grew restless. And by late 2012, he opened up the Big Pressellers Restaurant to close SaturdayBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERJERRY | 6SARASOTA COUNTY County commissioners unanimously approved Wednesday the rst public reading of a zoning-ordinance revision aimed at governing potential medical marijuana businesses. The second, and nal, public hearing is scheduled for election day, Nov. 4. County Commissioner Christine Robinson reiterated that support of the zoning revision was not a show of support for Amendment 2, on which voters will decide in the November general election. Amendment 2 would legalize medical marijuana statewide. Robinson compared the revised ordinance to those that govern painmanagement clinics. We need to have something in place to make sure this isnt around play grounds and schools, Robinson said. Its appropriate to have in place if the amendment passes. According to county staff, the amended ordinance, which planning commissioners approved last week with a 5-1 vote, puts in place a special exception process for the growth, processing and dispensing of medical marijuana in Sarasota County. All potential medical marijuana businesses would need approval of the special exception, and would be vetted like any other project that goes through a public process. County staff and commissioners would be able to look at grow areas and dispensaries on a case-by-case basis, and possibly steer them toward the proper geographical location, instead of having someone trying to open a grow operation in their garage, in the middle of a residential area.Sarasota advances medical marijuana ordinanceBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITERMEDICAL | 6 DavidDUNNRANKINPRESIDENT AND PUBLISHERPUBLISHERS INBOX SUN PHOTOS BY BRENDA BARBOSAJerry Presseller, owner of Pressellers Restaurant in Punta Gorda, is stepping down from the business as of Saturday.

For more information, call 949-6266215, or email Featured EventPAID ADVERTISEMENTAt every high school football game, a head coach and several assistants are there for the players. At Lemon Bay High School, theres a sideline coach with a unique position that of life coach. For the past four years, the Rev. Garry Clark has been that life coach. Although hes the pastor at Fellowship Church, he stresses his role at Lemon Bays football games has absolutely nothing to do with church or religion. Ill bet some of the kids dont even know Im a church pastor, he says. They just know me as that big guy with the booming voice who is always there for them. To them, Im not Pastor Garry. Im just Coach Garry. If he had to describe his coaching role in one word, that word would be motivator or cheer leader, he says. My role has absolutely nothing to do with football plays. Lemon Bay has a terric coaching staff, and thats their role. Mine is just to encourage and motivate the players to be the best they can on and off the eld, Clark says. So how did the char ismatic pastor get from church pulpit to the football eld? It all started when Lemon Bays football coach, D.J. Ogilvie, dropped in to one of Pastor Garrys energetic services. The two hit it off right from the start. He was new to the job at the time, and the football team was struggling. Win or lose, I think its important for the community to support the team. I promised the coach I would be there at every football game, home and away, Clark recalls. For him, it was an easy promise to keep. I love football. Always have. Football relaxes me, and whether its pro football, collegiate ball or high school sports, I love those football games, he says. A short time after he made that promise, Clark had a phone call from the coach, asking him to come to a fundraising banquet to support the team. Clark hit it off with the players and the rest of the coaching staff, giving the football coach another idea. He invited me to be on the sidelines in practices, as well as at games, to give support and encouragement to the players, Clark recalls. He said his job was coaching football. He could use help with motivating players and helping young men with their lives. For decades, Clark has been encouraging and motivating his growing church membership. Doing the same for a football team came easy. You cant believe the struggles young people have. Being at practice just to support them is important. I encourage them not to quit when the going gets tough to develop a winning attitude on and off the eld. My job is to help them stay focused. Although some credit him with helping a few of the boys through difculties, Clark brushes that aside. I absolutely wont talk about that, he says. Anything told to me is condential. I will say this: They are good boys and I believe in them. I just try to help them make the right choices. If a kid misses a tackle or makes a mistake, he tends to get down on himself. I tell him to raise his head high and focus on the next play, not the last one. That holds true on and off the eld. Clark says he knows from his own past experiences that coaches can make a difference in a kids life. Ill tell you this, he says, If I do anything for them, they do as much for me as I do for them.

SARASOTA COUNTY Flooding from excessive rainfall doesnt happen too often, but when it does, it can be just as damaging as storm surge from a hurricane. Certain neighborhoods are more at risk than others; is yours one of them? Sarasota County staff will host an open house workshop from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Laurel Park Community Center, 509 Collins Road, Laurel. County staff will present preliminary ndings that highlight areas prone to possible ooding in the Little Sarasota Bay Coastal and Dona/Roberts Bay Coastal watersheds, which begins in Venice from Center Road and continues north to Caribbean Drive (one mile south of Stickney Point Road). Representatives from county Stormwater Utilities, Public Works and others will be on hand to discuss areas that are being considered for potential ood risk mitigation projects and to answer questions. This workshops purpose is to gather input from residents about ooding in their neighborhood and what we can do together to try to mitigate it, said Scott Woodman, technical specialist with Sarasota County Planning. We are using the latest technologies to study potential sites at risk of ooding from excessive rainfall, and we are hopeful those results match up with what residents have observed. The study results should not be confused with Federal Emergency Management Agency ood maps, and are not intended to propose ood-insurance requirements or impact how much property owners pay for ood insurance. This project is part of the Stormwater Planning and Regulatory, Public Utilities Departments efforts in developing a comprehensive watershed management plan for the coastal basins of Sarasota County, with the emphasis on ood protection.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C The Sun /Thursday, October 9, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS ENGLEWOOD The Englewood Area Fire Control District adopted Wednesday a reduced budget due to a glitch in the expected revenues from Charlotte County. But district re commissioners want to know who or what is responsible for the estimated $300,000 in lost income. The re district bases its budget on the number of lots assessed in both Sarasota and Charlotte counties. The number of lots identied in Charlotte County did not take into account lots that had been taken off the tax roll. The calculations also didnt factor in a 3 percent shortfall due to foreclosures and other unpaid property tax bills. The re districts long-time consultants, Government Services Group, determines what revenues the district will derive in assessments upon its list of the property tax rolls. GSGs numbers were originally based on dated, inaccurate Charlotte County tax roll information it received. Expected revenues will drop from $6.7 million to $6.47 million. Fire Commissioner Larry McNamara asked, Whos to blame? Fire Chief Scott Lane said he wasnt prepared to ascribe any blame on anyone. He took some of the blame on himself for not catching the errors. We will get to the bottom of this eventually, Fire Commission Chairman Jeff Kern said. Lane promised commissioners a full report on what took place. He said new guidelines will be developed to keep the re district from falling into a similar accounting quagmire in the future. The bottom line for the re district is that it will not ll two reghter positions that have been vacant for two years. The good news is that the district expects to be under budget for the 20132014 scal year and those funds will be applied to the shortfall, Lane said. Because they met Wednesday, commissioners canceled their Oct. 22 meeting. The boards next meeting will be 9 a.m. Nov. 12, at the Englewood Sports Complex, 1300 S. River Road, Englewood.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comEnglewood fire addresses budget glitchBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERNO PLAN REVIEWS FOR FIRE DISTRICTEnglewood Fire Chief Scott Lane had hoped the Englewood Area Fire Control District would review all plans for new construction for fire safety. But thats not going to happen. Because fire safety standards for commercial construction differ between Sarasota and Charlotte counties, Lane said he hoped the fire district, which straddles the county line in Englewood, would be given the oversight of plan reviews. According to state statutes, the counties trump the fire district with plan reviews and thats the problem for Lane. Sarasota County tends to be more stringent than Charlotte in its fire safety codes. Lane cited how Sarasota County requires sprinkler systems in some structures and Charlotte County doesnt for similar structures. Theres a lot of discrepancies between the two counties, Lane said. Its put our firefighters in situations at times. The fire district, Lane said, will continue to work cooperatively with both counties. MURDOCK With a budget of $220,000, members of the Little Gasparilla Island Fire Rescue always are looking for grants to help with operations and equipment. After learning the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation gives millions in grant monies to rst responders, the unit applied for funding. It was awarded $13,900 for self-contained breathing apparatuses and six air bottles to provide reghters breathable air in life-threatening situations. Each air bottle lasts for about 45 minutes. The only way to access the 700 or so homes on Little Gasparilla Island is by boat or helicopter, Chief Steve Demeter said. We have a lot of needs out there. The re department is only 4 or 5 years old. Wednesday, chamber leaders, along with Charlotte County Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch, joined Demeter to thank Russ and Kim Clouden, who own the Firehouse Subs franchise at 18500 Veterans Blvd., Murdock. The Cloudens opened Firehouse Subs less than three years ago. Russ has approached rst responders throughout the region, telling them about the grants available to their agencies. We have been able to give a grant to the Peace River K-9 Search & Rescue Association because they do rescues, and their dogs look for dead bodies, Russ said. They offer public-safety services to the community. Police departments and volunteer re departments can apply, too. Wednesday, members of the Nokomis Volunteer Fire Department were awarded a thermal imaging camera valued at about $13,000. The camera allows not only the reghter inside, but also an operator outside of a smoke-lled building to see images. Fireghters say that safety feature can help save a rst respond ers life. Firehouse Subs area development representative Richard Taylor said the Cloudens do an outstanding job in fundraising for the foundation. They do it by recycling 5-gallon pickle buckets for $2, and selling paper medallions for $1 or $5, which they then display at the restaurant. Our employees also ask customers if they want to round up their order, Russ said. For example, if a customers order comes to $7.60, theres an option to round it up to $8. Those nickels and dimes really add up. I can raise $200 in a week. My employees are all trained. They are wonderful. We are gearing up for our Kids Safety Day later this month. The Cloudens efforts also have earned them the North Port Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year award in 2013, and, just recently, the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year award for 2014. We love helping out in the community, said Russ, adding he fed deputies and other rst responders during the boat races on Englewood Beach. He gave 500 cards for free subs to Charlottes Do The Right Thing Program, which is sponsored by the Punta Gorda Police Department. He also partners with the Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board to hire individuals who have struggled in the past and need a second chance. In December, North Port Fire Rescue representatives will be awarded a $5,200 grant to purchase four Apple iPad Airs to help re inspectors track the safety of North Port buildings during construction. Russ said he will help any local rst responder group with the grant application or information. They just have to come and see me, he said.Email: eallen@sun-herald.comGrants from Firehouse Subs help first respondersBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHCOMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR SUN PHOTO BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHFrom left: Richard Taylor, area development representative of Firehouse Subs, stands with banker Kelly Louke; Charlotte County Commissioner Stephen R.

Our Town Page 6 E/N/C The Sun /Thursday, October 9, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE Cheese Gourmet Shop, which he still operates alongside his wife Pattis art boutique, Sunart Gallery & Framing, at 307 Taylor St. He will continue to run the cheese shop, will keep his spot at the Farmers Market downtown on Saturdays, and still will head up the Downtown Merchants Association, where he serves as president. Its been a great run, but now it is time to at least semi-retire again, he said. Pressellers career in Punta Gorda began more than 30 years ago when he took a job managing the former Holiday Inn restaurant and later the Howard Johnson restaurant downtown. His in-laws lived in the city and, when given the choice between a job in Fort Myers and Punta Gorda, Presseller chose Punta Gorda. And weve enjoyed every minute of it, he said. In 2002, he opened Pressellers Deli, a lunch spot that quickly became known for its delectable sandwiches. In 2010, he sold the business to a German lady who left in the middle of the night in July 2012, Presseller said. So he took back the restaurant and reopened it as The Big Cheese Eatery. But nobody got the name. They just saw cheese and gured it was a pizza shop, he said. So I called it Pressellers Restaurant because of the name recognition. Pressellers ofcially will close Saturday. He sent this message to customers: I personally want to thank you all for your past 32 years of patronage, he said. Together, as a community, weve weathered the best, the worst and everything in between. So I guess its not goodbye at all, but rather, See you next door at Sunart and the Big Cheese Gourmet Shop.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comJERRYFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY BRENDA BARBOSALongtime restaurateur Jerry Presseller is rarely known to sit still.

This is akin to what weve done with pain-management clinics, he said. In other county news Wednesday, commissioners unanimously approved a public hear ing for a revised process for solicitation in public rights of way. As redesigned by county staff, those looking to solicit in public rights of way for fundraising purposes would be limited to four weekends each year, including the rst full weekend in March, June, September and December. County staff identified eight major intersections throughout the county where solicitation would be allowed, including State Road 776 and Dearborn Street in Englewood, and the U.S. 41 Bypass and Venice Avenue; and organizations would pay a $10 permitting fee for each intersection used, each weekend. We knew what the easiest, safest route was, but this is a good compromise, Hines added. A public hearing date has not been set yet.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comMEDICALFROM PAGE 1 NORTH PORT Pregnancy Solutions in North Port and Venice helps struggling parents with free diapers and clothing. Jewish Family Services helps residents catch up on their bills and stay in their house. Englewood Helping Hand gives away food to those in need. One after another, social service providers, business leaders, veter ans groups, childrens programs and other nonprot representatives gave a three-minute introduction Wednesday of what they do to help the needy in South Sarasota County, during a luncheon at Heron Creek Golf & Country Club. The event was funded by a private donor, and was sponsored by Catholic Charities, to offer information to help combat homelessness in South County. We want to have a grassroots gathering once a month to link the service providers together, said Jacquie Crombie, district director of Catholic Charities. We will have it two more times in North Port, and then move the meeting to Boca Royale in Englewood, and then to a place in Venice. We are hoping to have about 100 in attendance. It gives agencies the opportunity to see what others are doing and how they can stay connected. Wayne Applebee, director of Sarasota County Homeless Services, said agencies coming together prevents a duplication of services and allows the group eventually to know where needs are in South County. In Sarasota, during the summer there are about ve sites a homeless person can go to for lunch, he said. In North Port, whats available, for say, a hungry fth-grader who lives on the other side of town? There arent many resources available to those individuals. Then we need to gure out how to get them those and other services. Its not just about feeding a hungry or homeless child; its about working with his family to help with a real solution for housing or a job. Jon Thaxton, a former county commissioner and current director of community investment for the Gulf Coast Community Foundation, which services South County and a portion of Charlotte County with grants, said many local agencies now are using the same intake forms and computer system for clients. Caseworkers from 30-plus agencies are working together with others, he said, adding a homeless portal in North Port will open around Jan. 15, 2015, to give tem porary shelter to homeless families. The good news is the Sarasota County Commission approved $500,000 for the construction of the intake portal, which will be run by Catholic Charities; and an additional $250,000 for capital projects dedicated to family projects. The County Commission has made combating homelessness a priority. Gary Nanz, of Helping Hand, said theres always a need for canned goods at the pantry, based at Englewood United Methodist Church. We know that there are children living in the woods along River Road in Englewood, he said. We are always looking for more food. We would also like to talk to someone about extending bus service into the Charlotte County section of Englewood. It could mean better job opportunities for families and seniors.

Caregivers are required every two hours to turn a patient who isnt able to on his own, so the patient doesnt get decubitus ulcers, more commonly known as bed sores, per AHCA rules. The resident in question sometimes had been in bed for 13 hours without being moved, the report shows. The resident was removed from the facility April 24 by her daughter because Davis said he couldnt care for her anymore, which went against his duties as an assisted-living facility owner, ofcials noted. The resident died seven weeks later. Charlotte Countys medical examiner determined the woman died from cardiac arrest, but her bed sores were signicant conditions contributing to death. A warrant was issued for Davis arrest Tuesday, and he was taken into custody later that day. Two other people who used to work at the ALF havent been charged. An AHCA spokesman said he couldnt comment on the investigation because it is still open. When the facility was shut down, there were three residents who had to be relocated. The ALF was licensed to hold eight residents. The multiplex that is the defunct ALF still has at least one family living in it, neighbors said. No one answered any of the doors Wednesday. A room still labeled ofce was locked. Davis remained at the Charlotte County Jail Wednesday on $100,000 bond, for a charge of neglecting the elderly causing great harm a second-degree felony that could be punishable by 15 years in state prison. The Four Seasons was issued a $69,000 ne earlier this week related to the deciencies found, an MFCU spokeswoman said. Ofcials with the AHCA found other deciencies with the facility in 2012 having to do with a lack of scheduled leisure activities for residents, which assisted-living facilities are required to offer. That issue was resolved quickly.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comNEGLECTFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERThis multiplex on Melville Road in Deep Creek once served as The Four Seasons ALF Community, before state ocials shut it down.

The Sun /Thursday, October 9, 2014 E/N/C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT Twenty-ve city Public Works employees completed four days of training and retesting for Federal Emergency Management Agency certication Wednesday morning, and City Manager Jonathan Lewis said all of them passed with a 75 percent or better.The employees were required to complete the classroom training and tests led by Rich Berman, the citys Emergency Management coordinator, after more than a dozen North Port Public Works employees came forward to the media and city ofcials stating they had cheated on the required FEMA tests. FEMA requires the Public Works employees to complete online training and tests, so that, in case of an emergency, employees know what to do if they are the rst responders at an incident in the city. Incidents include situations like when natural disasters cause damage to power lines, city streets and/or residential neighborhoods. Employees had to complete two, 25-question, multiple-choice tests to complete the FEMA curriculum. Both tests were open-book. Many employees said that previously, they were given cheat sheets with the test answers on them before they completed the online training and tests. Public Works Director Branford Adumuah requested an investigation of the department to be done after cheating allegations were reported, and Lewis ordered the retraining and retesting of more than 57 employees from the department. Steve Uebelacker, a former Florida Department of Law Enforcement ofcer, was hired by the city to complete an external investigation of the department. In an email Oct. 3, Lewis said no employees will be red or suspended until the investigation is completed. I wish it was this past Monday (Oct. 6), Lewis said Wednesday about when the investigation will be completed. The investigator has had to go where the interviews take him, and he has had to reinterview some people too. One employee, Rich Tirado, sent an email to Lewis last week stating he had told his supervisors about the cheat sheets. He said the supervisors did nothing about it, though, and he was discouraged when his interview with Uebelacker had been canceled before he could share his experience. Uebelacker began inter viewing employees about the FEMA cheating allegations, but stopped the interviews after more than eight employees confessed to cheating. Uebelacker also has been conducting internal affairs investigations for the North Port Police Department. He has to go where the fact-nding takes him, Lewis said. Berman said the rest of the Public Works employ ees, about 30, will start the four days of classroom training this morning at City Hall. The group will take one test Friday morning, and the nal test Oct. 15. Berman said the tests shouldnt take employees more than an hour each to complete, and the entire online course is available on FEMAs website free of charge at IS/NIMS.aspx.Email: ashirk@sun-herald.comNorth Port Public Works employees pass FEMA retestsBy ALLISON SHIRKSTAFF WRITER SARASOTA Bradenton resident Nik Wallenda has begun preparations in Sarasota for his next televised tightrope walk.

Our Town Page 8 E/N/C The Sun /Thursday, October 9, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS MURDOCK A former dancer from a local gentlemens club and her boyfriend have been accused of luring a club-goer to a secluded part of town, where he was severely beaten and robbed, according to a Charlotte County Sheriffs report. Jaime Maude Yell, 26, and Wesley Charles Banner, 24, have been ar rested on myriad charges related to the incident that occurred in the early hours of Sept. 10. According to the sheriffs report: A 49-year-old man was hanging out at Emerald City Gentlemens Club, which boasts itself as Southwest Floridas largest full-nude gentlemens club. He became friendly with Yell, who was a dancer there, and she invited him to meet her after work around 2 a.m. in a secluded area near Paulson Drive and Prineville Street. Yell was red for leaving work early. The man thought he was meeting Yell for sex, but Yell allegedly had set him up. According to the report, he was jumped from behind by Banner, who had been in the club earlier that night. The suspects made off with the victims wallet which contained less than $30 in cash and his Samsung S-5 smartphone. The victim briey was knocked unconscious, but then he later drove himself to a nearby Circle K to call for help. The victim was taken to Bayfront Health Port Charlotte, and later was transferred to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg because his injuries were so severe. He suffered from a broken jaw, two cracked ribs and other injuries. His throat was so swollen he couldnt breathe on his own, and he required multiple surgeries. A detective was able to nd the suspects Facebook accounts the next day. A recent photo of the couple showed them on a train. The detective contacted the Amtrak Police and learned Banner and Yell were on their way to Albany, N.Y., and they possibly were trying to make their way into Canada, the report shows. Authorities arrested the two before they made it to Canada. Banner, of Deland, Fla., was transported to the Charlotte County Jail Tuesday afternoon, where he remained on $400,000 bond for felony charges of robbery, aggravated battery with great bodily harm, and tampering with a witness. Yell had not been booked in the local jail as of late Wednesday.Man charged with choking womanNOKOMIS A North Port man faces a felony count of battery for allegedly choking a 38-year-old woman Wednesday while on her early morning paper route, according to a Sarasota County Sheriffs report. Christopher Betts, 35, of the 5900 block of Spearman Circle, accompanied the victim on her paper route around 3:45 a.m., and as the two started arguing over the radio in the vehicle, he grabbed her by the neck, pushed her head against the drivers side window and smacked her, a report shows. Betts then got out of the vehicle and, as the victim tried to drive away, he grabbed onto the moving vehicle and was dragged along, causing road rash on his side and leg, the report states.

The Sun /Thursday, October 9, 2014 E/N/C Our Town Page 9 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. SARASOTA COUNTY A lobbying rm is now on board to help the Sarasota County School District navigate the next legislative session in Tallahassee. In a meeting Tuesday night, Sarasota County School Board members approved a proposal making Becker and Poliakoff the districts new lobbying rm. Four vendors submitted proposals Aug. 26, with Becker and Poliakoff best meeting the advertised specifications. The firm has 13 Florida locations, including one in Sarasota. The contract is for three years, with an option to renew for two additional oneyear periods, and is set at $230,000, or just over $76,666 per year, to be taken from the districts operating budget. After hiring a shortterm lobbyist to help them secure extra funds for the future North Port campus of Sarasota County Technical Institute and a joint-use library facility proposed for Toledo Blade Boulevard, board members previously discussed hiring a more permanent lobbyist during a mid-April workshop. The discussion Tuesday night saw board members asking district staff for more input into the process, as they had not seen the various proposals before the item was placed on the meeting agenda. We have to look for another process, board member Caroline Zucker said Wednesday. The contract was approved 4-1, with board member Frank Kovach dissenting. Its not that the bid was high, I just dont feel you really get what you pay for, even for what were paying, Kovach said Wednesday. I just dont think the Sarasota County School District is going to get legislation passed ... for $70,000 a year. ... Thats just my opinion. Weve had a lobbyist before, and basically what you get out of it is information. Board Chairwoman Jane Goodwin said she thinks the district can be helped only by having someone who can assist the district in being more engaged with the Legislature. The high-stakes testing is a big thing for us, as well as the nuances of the plethora of statutes and laws, she said. Lets stop with the insanity of people making decisions about education that are not educators. We need time to catch up with the new testing (and) the new standards. Theres just a whole lot of things (a lobbyist could help with). The lobbying contract will be renewed yearly, and can be canceled if board members feel Becker and Poliakoff isnt doing its job. I would choose not to renew before a year if theyre not doing their job, Goodwin said. This is not like buying a tile floor. ... This is a service. In other business Tuesday, several parents spoke during public comment about their desire for the district to opt out of standardized testing. Most were from the Imagine School (at North Port), and I told them they need to discuss those things with the Imagine board, Goodwin said, adding they were members of a state group seeking to opt out. Were not going to do that. ... Were not going to violate state statutes (regarding testing). ... We need to know how well our students are doing.Email: annek@sun-herald.comSarasota schools to spend $230K on lobbyingBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER HALLOWEEN EVENTS Mummies & Goblins Party, 10 a.m.-noon Oct. 23 at the George Mullen Activity Center, 1602 Kramer Way (near North Port City Hall, off Sumter Boulevard), North Port.

As a matter of fact, former republican Attorney General Bill McCollum, called Rick Scott a fraud that Florida could not afford in the 2010 Florida governors race and even Jeb Bush told reporters it might be worth looking further into the fraud allegations when Bush endorsed McCollum for governor over Scott. This election year the Republican Party is calling Charlie Christ a ip-opper. The Republican Party fails to think smart before they speak, so let me pose a question to my fellow Republicans. Do you know the difference between these two F words? Give up? Fraud is a crime and ip-opping is simply changing ones mind. Who is accusing whom of being a ip-opper now? Flippin amazing, ippin incredible, ippin ridiculous. I feel ippin better just trying to be an honest Republican.Ken DeVries Punta GordaEditor: Reinstate draft, kick some butts. After reading this letter to the editor, I thought, surely, this must be a young person bereft of history from 1952 to the present. The politicians did not let us win these wars: Korea 36,574 Americans killed and 103,284 wounded. Vietnam 58,220 Americans killed and 303,644 wounded. Iraq 4,487 Americans killed and 32,223 wounded. Afghanistan 2,249 Americans killed and 19,600 wounded. This does not count the tens of thousands of psychological and chemical-scarred troops who came home impaired. Maybe the person advocating a draft should have every man and woman in his family between the ages of 18 and 29 forced into the service to ght ISIS, with politicians setting and micro-managing the rules of engagement that has caused so many American soldiers deaths. Maybe you think war is fun, sort of like hunting a defenseless animal. The men, women and families of the 560,281 dead and maimed American soldier, Marine, Navy, Airman, and Airwoman above would disagree with you. You and your family go die for the politically correct politicians. Please understand what I am saying. I am not saying dont ght. I am saying dont Editor: The Sun recently printed letters from members of the dissident group take back Sec. 23 attacking our board, and myself personally without fact-checking the false and misleading statements in those letters. One writer claims that I approved the nominating committee personally. False! The entire board voted unanimously to select that committee. He says I have been running for his almost 13th consecutive year on the board. False! I did not move into Deep Creek until November 2001, and never served more than two consecutive elected terms. He states that the candidates not selected were not qualied. False! The nominating committee reviewed all resumes and unanimously chose three candidates. Editor: Its not a penny tax but a 17 percent increase to the state sales tax. Local media, county and city government use the penny description to try and put positive spin on a tax increase. At best, this is deception, at worst, dishonesty. In the medium to long term, the tax extension will increase property taxes. The capital improvements the tax creates will require maintenance and eventual replacement. Over six years, the new jail inrmary will doubtlessly require more medical staff and equipment; school computers will need software and hardware updates; new public parks and pools will require continual maintenance; its a long, expensive list. Unlike those of us who live here full time or seasonally, visitors to Charlotte County will contribute only a small portion of the tax. Visitors buy (and are taxed on,) hamburgers, hotel rooms and sunscreen, not big ticket items like cars and air conditioners. The tax extension lets elected public ofcials dodge their scal responsibilities. New expenditures with the potential to increase property taxes should always be subjected to public scrutiny, not gathered together in a take it or leave it grab bag that includes police cars, school computers, parks and pools, radios and road widening. All sales taxes are regressive. Young families and low income workers spend a greater percentage of their income on taxable items like school clothes, work clothes, tools and protective footwear. This tax hurts them the most.Jac Simensen Punta GordaEditor: Dial back to the Hillary/ Obama debate when Hillary said, Who would you rather have taking that 3 a.m. phone call me or him?

For Hillary and Obama, you are both real jerks and total embarrassments for our country.Richard Ibsen Punta GordaEditor: It is time for the annual meeting and voting for POA 23 in Deep Creek and I would like to thank the current board and its president for the selection of a nominating committee who selectively presented three members names and one write-in category for the ballot. Successfully eliminating all of the three Take Back Section 23 names from being on the ballot or garnering enough write-in votes to earn one of three vacant seats on the POA board. I would also like to thank Jay Carlson for his companys 20-year reign. He has done a remarkable job keeping the common areas and lakes in tiptop shape. The completion of the recent drainage project, which he lauds as coming in under budget and on time with no accounting for the remaining special assessment dollars, is remarkable. In reviewing the 2014-15 budget to be administered by the POA board and the CAM, I would like to express appreciation for allowing our community to pay the CAM $174,000 in salaries alone and the board for allowing him to use our POA ofce rent-free. The other expense items listed for 2015 will certainly serve to free up board members and volunteers, who graciously serve their community, from assisting with violations against our residents and planting maintenance at the Deep Creek egresses.Mary Wiley Punta GordaEditor: Many of us are enjoying what is left of our lives in Gods waiting room.

We have ISIS, Ebola and human enterovirus 68. I only include Athletes should pay, not play, for misconductOUR POSITION: Some highprole cases have put pressure on coaches and administrators to right a listing ship of discipline. We say its about time they get it right.Jameis Winston and Ray Rice may or may not have a lot in common. But one thing is certain. Their actions, alleged and otherwise, have forced National Football League brass, college administrators and coaches to turn the page on how they deal with violence especially toward women. If you dont follow sports, you may not be that familiar with the two names. Winston is the Heisman Trophywinning quarterback for Florida State University. That means he was voted the best college player in the nation last year. Rice was a running back for the NFL Baltimore Ravens. Both were accused of violence against women. Rice was caught on video and had no choice but to admit to punching his now-wife in a hotel elevator knocking her out after a night of partying together. Winston was accused of rape in an infamous incident that brought to light serious shortcomings with the FSU administrations handling of the charges and a lack of urgency inside the Tallahassee Police Department. Winston has so far escaped charges although a civil suit by the alleged victim is pending. Rice has been suspended indenitely by the NFL. In a sense we owe Rice and Winston. If not for their actions both real and alleged colleges and professional sports might have never been exposed for their play-rst, pay-later philosophy. A great example occurred this week. A year ago, the University of Floridas quick action to suspend its own quarterback, Treon Harris, may not have happened. Harris, a freshman, had just made a semi-successful debut for the Gators in a win against Tennessee. If the accusations are true, it seems he celebrated a little too much. Harris was accused by a female student of assaulting her in a dorm during the early morning hours after the game. Nothing has been proven yet. But what did happen was that UF ofcials took immediate action. And, so did the Gainesville Police Department and the University Police Department. That is a far different outcome than we experienced with Winston when police failed to investigate the allegations for months. Most likely, the Winston case was on the minds of University of Florida ofcials when the allegations were made against Harris. And, to their credit, they didnt hesitate to act. That same sense of urgency continues to play out in the NFL. Monday, the Miami Dolphins suspended defensive end Derrick Shelby after his arrest at a Miami nightclub. Shelby allegedly had inappropriately touched some women and was asked to leave. A ccording to police reports, he refused and became aggressive with police when they tried to arrest him. The Dolphins acted swiftly. Perhaps, after the legal system nishes with the case, he will play again. But the Miami brass already smarting from last years bullying scandal has no patience with players who bring on more bad publicity. We believe in letting the legal system work. But, we applaud sports ofcials who seem to have nally gotten the message. Athletes have no special privileges. There will be no more pay to play while awaiting the outcome of criminal charges that sometimes take months to play out. The writer also claims that I am eliminating their voting decision. False! We are simply strictly following the bylaws as demanded by his group. Nominations are always allowed from the oor. A second letter also includes a major misstatement. In the 2001 case that he won, the issue that was decided in his favor had to do with proxy voting. Nothing else was affected. Had I lived in Deep Creek then, I would have been on Mr. Barnes side on this issue. During a trial on Aug. 25, 2014, Judge Porter of the 20th District ruled that only proxy voting had been an issue, and all of our bylaws and deed restrictions were legal.

Many of the foreign workers and travelers come here from countries with inferior public health standards than we are used to in the States.

The Sun /Thursday, October 9, 2014 E/N/C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINT Some 22 states have enacted medical marijuana laws most through legislative action. But here in Florida, the Legislature refuses to consider decriminalizing marijuana for medical purposes for those suffering with multiple sclerosis, cancer, seizures, debilitating pain and nausea. It was not for lack of trying by some compassionate legislators. State Sen. Jeff Clemons introduced legislation for four straight years. The bills went nowhere. In Florida, when the Legislature ignores the will of the people, citizens have few alter natives. The obvious voting them out of ofce is easier said than done. Citizens do have the ability to try to amend their Florida Constitution. The process is difcult, costly and time consuming. A citizens initiative requires hundreds of thousands of petitions to be gathered throughout the state. If it makes it to the ballot it needs 60 percent of the vote to pass. A group called United for Care was formed to place the use of medical marijuana on the ballot. They jumped through all the hoops language was drafted; petitions were printed; volunteers and paid petition gatherers collected petitions; petitions were veried; and the ballot title and summary language faced Florida Supreme Court review. On top of that, there was an aggressive challenge in court from the attorney general, the governor, the Senate president and the speaker of the Florida House. Despite their opposition, the Florida Supreme Court cleared Amendment 2 for the ballot. Early polling showed incredible popularity for the amendment across almost every demographic age, gender, party, and race. Some polls showed support as high as 88 percent. Floridas sheriffs took the lead in opposing Amendment 2, which is understandable as they have for decades been leading the war against drugs and incarcerating thousands of drug users, including those in possession of marijuana. The cost to taxpayers of incarcerating an inmate is $20,000 a year. Some of those pur chasing marijuana illegally are doing it on behalf of their loved ones with debilitating illnesses. Do we really want to make criminals out of them? Opponents devised a strategy of scare tactics and misinfor mation. They received nearly $4 million from one out-of-state donor alone Las Vegas casino magnate and billionaire Sheldon Adelson. The opponents have also brought other buddies with bucks on board. Big Pharma, business groups and the Florida Medical Association have lent their voices and their resources to the effort. Despite FMAs stated opposition, many doctors have come forward supporting the use of marijuana for their patients. Some have defended the use of medical marijuana as purely humanitarian and ask to have every possible tool they can in their toolbox for the care of critically ill patients. With their huge war chest, the opponents have hit the airwaves with claims that misrepresent this modest effort to legalize medical marijuana with total legalization. They claim the wording is overly broad, dispensaries would be on every street corner, children would be in grave danger, caregivers are tantamount to drug dealers, and doctors cant be trusted. They ignore not only the amendments intent but also the facts. The amendment requires a doctors supervision, respects the doctor/ patient relationship and keeps government out of medical decisions. The Legislature would be responsible for crafting implementing legislation. They could regulate how the amendment will be applied. Opponents decry the potential for vehicular deaths while ignoring the greater risk from driving under the inuence of alcohol or OxyContin both legal substances. Why would so many spend so much to deny sick and dying people the ability to legally access a safe drug that would bring them relief? Their campaign of exaggeration has taken a toll polls show support has fallen to 64 percent, barely over the threshold to pass. Dont fall for the scare tactics. Marijuana is not the dangerous drug they depict. In fact, it is less dangerous than many prescription drugs and certainly less addictive than opiate painkillers. To my knowledge, no one has died of an overdose of marijuana. We follow 22 other states that have legalized medical marijuana, some with more than a dozen years of experience, and the sky has not fallen. Sen. Clemons had some harsh words for those that feign compassion: Its disingenuous for my conservative colleagues to suggest they are for medical marijuana, but opposed to Amendment 2, when theyve refused to hear a bill that was more restrictive for the past four years. Theyve had the opportunity to help people who are suffering, and refused. The bottom line is that marijuana is a safe, useful medicine and we should trust doctors to prescribe it responsibly. 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@ scare tactics vote yes on Amendment 2 Paula Dockery Even if Africas Ebola emergency never mutates into a global catastrophe, those of us who live in the worlds most fortunate country ought to consider what this fearsome virus can teach us. The lessons are quite obvious at this point and contain implications that are political in the most urgent sense. The tea party mania for shrinking federal budgets and rejecting international organizations both of which are bedrock policy among the current Republican leadership is not only bad for our national prestige but also exceptionally dangerous to our health. At the insistence of House leaders, whose answer to every problem has been cutting government and reducing taxes, the United States has steadily starved the budgets of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. The disturbing consequence is that in both this country and the world, humanity lacks the full arsenal of weapons needed to combat Ebola and other potentially devastating outbreaks of tropical disease. Politicians who identify themselves as conser vative have failed in their duty to conserve the nations public health infrastructure, built over decades of hard scientic work with many millions of taxpayer dollars, precisely to cope with an emergency such as Ebola. Instead, they have proposed budgets that would decimate every federal agency that protects us, including the CDC. And the budget deal that they enacted, which depends on sequestration, has led to severe, ham-handed cutbacks in the programs that protect us. Testifying in Congress a few weeks ago, Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health said sequestration has inicted a signicant impact. It has both in an acute and a chronic, insidious way eroded our ability to respond to these emerging threats. He said the cuts have been particularly damaging to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which he directs and which is responsible, he noted, for responding on the dime to an emerging infectious disease threat. Specically, sequestration forced the NIH to shave its budget by $1.55 billion, or 5 percent, in 2013, according to Mother Jones magazine. That may not sound like a lot and it is nothing in terms of closing decits but it can be ruinous during an emergency when an agency is suddenly scrambling for every dollar. The CDCs National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases meaning those that can be transmitted between species also suffered severe cuts. The center lost $13 million last year, according to Beth Bell, its director, who pleaded with Congress to increase funding sharply. Sequestration took a similar toll on U.S. spending for international aid a budget category that American voters tend to assume is roughly 20 times more than the measly 1 per cent or so that it actually represents. The tea party mentality that wildly exaggerates how much we spend abroad is just as ignorant about the importance and usefulness of that spending. If even modest investments had been made to build up a public health infrastructure in West Africa previously, the current Ebola epidemic could have been detected earlier, and it could have been identied and contained, testied Bell. But the sequester cut global health programs by $411 million and the U.S. Agency for International Development, which oversees most of our for eign aid, by $289 million. The World Health Organization, an agency of the United Nations that forms the front line of disease defense in Africa, has likewise suffered massive budget reductions, at the very moment when its services may be most needed. In 2010, the United States paid $280 million toward the WHOs operating costs; by 2013, that contribution was cut by nearly a quarter, to $215 million. But much of that money is earmarked for specic programs, when what the WHO needs in an emergency such as Ebola is unrestricted funding. Cutting funds to the WHO surely thrilled congressional Republicans, tea party leaders and everyone else in this country who expresses irrational hostility toward the U.N. But that was a very perilous way to gratify our countrys isolationist faction, which evidently cannot understand that this is one planet and that the fates of its peoples are inseparably joined. If we want to improve our security, if we want our children to live in safety, it is long past time to rid Washington of the partisan enemies of strong, competent government and inter national cooperation. We dont yet know the full cost of their mindless actions, but if we are unlucky, it could be incalculable.

Theres no reason civilians couldnt do the same, especially for children who might be less scared if vaccine was given by mom or dad, the study leader said. A parent could easily administer it. You cant go wrong, and having a DIY option might improve vaccination rates, said Eugene Millar of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Rockville, Md.

In an epidemic or rapid deployment, there might not be enough health care workers to give vaccines quickly enough to protect troops in crowded barracks, so Millars study tested DIY as a practical solution. During the last two u seasons, more than 1,000 service members and their families at military hospitals in San Diego and San Antonio either got FluMist from health workers or gave it to themselves, individually or in a group session.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Thursday, October 9, 2014 NATIONAL/WORLD NEWS ISTANBUL (AP) As U.S. generals and Secretary of State John Kerry warn that a strategic Syrian border town could fall to Islamic State militants, the Turkish military has deployed its tanks on its side of the frontier but only watched the slaughter. Turkeys inaction despite its supposed participation in a coalition forged to crush the extremist group is frustrating Washington and its NATO allies, and reviving a rebellion by Turkish Kurds. Amid fears the Kurdish town of Kobani could fall any day, U.S. and NATO ofcials are traveling to Turkey on Thursday to press negotiations for more robust Turkish involvement in the coalition. But Turkey is taking a hard line, insisting that it will only consider involvement in military action as part of a broader strategy for ending the rule of Syrian President Bashar Assad. The U.S. and its allies want to keep the focus on the Islamic State group, which they say poses a more global threat. Emphasizing the U.S. position, Kerry said Wednesday that although the Obama administration is deeply concerned about the people of Kobani, preventing the towns fall to Islamic State militants was not a strategic objective for the U.S. As horric as it is to watch in real time whats happening in Kobani, its also important to remember, you have to step back and understand the strategic objective, Kerry told a news conference in Washington. Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, also conceded Kobani could fall because air power alone is not going to be enough to save that city. We all need to prepare ourselves for the reality that other towns and villages and perhaps Kobani will be taken by ISIL, Kirby said, adding that the key to eventually defeating the militants is to train and enable indigenous ground forces. Turkey is ambivalent about the ght across its border, because of its distrust of the Kurdish ghters protecting Kobani, also known as Ayn Arab. It views them as an extension of the Kurdish PKK, the rebel group that has waged a long and bloody insurgency against Ankara. In recent days, Turkish ofcials have emphasized that they view both the Islamic State group and the PKK as terrorist groups.US, allies chafing at Turkish inaction on Syria AP PHOTOTurkish Kurds, standing in Mursitpinar, on the outskirts of Suruc, on the Turkey-Syria border, watch over the border the intensied ghting between militants of the Islamic State group and Kurdish forces in Kobani, Syria, Wednesday. | NATIONGay marriage on in Nevada, delayed in IdahoLAS VEGAS (AP) Wedding chapels in Las Vegas readied for a ood of gay couples on Wednesday as bans on same-sex marriage were imposed and lifted in dizzying fashion. But in a sign of the uncertainty over gay marriage across the U.S., clerks who had gender-neutral marriage licenses all ready to issue were waiting to hear whether they should start. I think I have whiplash, said Mary Baranovich who was a plaintiff in the Nevada case with Beverly Sevcik, her partner of 43 years. The uncertainty in the self-proclaimed wedding capital of the world spread across the U.S. as the Supreme Court allowed same-sex couples in Nevada to exchange vows but blocked those in Idaho from doing the same. Meanwhile, a judge in northeast Kansas ordered a county to issue mar riage licenses to same-sex couples, saying the decision was meant to avoid confusion about the legal climate surrounding gay marriages. Kansas was one of the states affected by a Supreme Court ruling Monday that kicked off the latest urry of legal decisions. In Idaho, weddings were denitely off. One couple was a few feet away from the clerk who could help make their union ofcial when their attorney was told it wasnt happening. Amber Beierle, one of the eight women who sued the state over the gay marriage ban, had hoped to marry her partner, Rachael. They arrived at the courthouse before it opened at 8 a.m. We were past the metal detectors, we were just a few feet away from the clerk and then our attorney was handed a one-page document, Beierle said. Apparently it was Justice Kennedy telling us no. She said the hardest part was calling her mom to tell her she wasnt going to be able to get married after all. State after state has joined the national tide in seeing same-sex unions made legal, given a push by the U.S. Supreme Courts refusal Monday to hear appeals that essentially made gay marriage legal in 30 states.Next edition of is unveiledWASHINGTON (AP) The Obama administration unveiled an updated version of HealthCare. gov on Wednesday.

(AP) A state appeals court will decide in coming weeks whether chimpanzees are entitled to legal per sonhood in a case that could lead to expanded rights for animals such as gorillas, elephants and dolphins, according to the lawyer advocating for a 26-year-old chimp named Tommy. Attorney Steven Wise argued before a ve-member mid-level appeals court Wednesday on behalf of Tommy, who lives alone in a cage in upstate Fulton County. A trial-level judge has refused a request by Wise and his Nonhuman Rights Project to have Tommy released to join other chimps at a Florida sanctuary that mimics their natural habitat. Wise argues that animals with human qualities, such as chimps, deserve basic rights, including freedom from imprisonment. Hes also seeking the release of three other chimps in New York and said he plans similar cases in other states. Coach, students suspended over duct-taping(MCT) Pittsburgh Post-Gazette The Highlands School District near Pittsburgh has suspended its soccer coach and two of the teams players after an autistic teenager was found ducttaped to a goal post over the weekend. Harrison, Pa., police said the incident happened Sunday night at the schools soccer elds. The police department is investigating. Austin Babinsack, 16, told police that he was left duct taped to the post for about 15 minutes, while several students went back to the school to get another student. An off-duty Pennsylvania state trooper found him. He was terried, he could have died, he could have had a heart attack from being so stressed out. He was screaming at the top of his lungs, Austins mother, Kristy Babinsack told KDKA-TV. Kristy Babinsack said Austin is autistic. The school district said coach Jim Turner and two of the players, both 17, have been suspended for at least ve days. | WORLD3 win chemistry Nobel for zoom microscopesSTOCKHOLM (AP) Three researchers won a Nobel Prize on Wednesday for giving microscopes much sharper vision than was thought possible, letting scientists peer into living cells with unprecedented detail to seek the roots of disease. The chemistry prize was awarded to U.S. researchers Eric Betzig and William Moerner and German scientist Stefan Hell. They found ways to use molecules that glow on demand to overcome what was considered a fundamental limitation for optical microscopes. Betzig, 54, works at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Ashburn, Virginia. Hell, 51, is director of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Goettingen, Germany, and also works at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg. Moerner, 61, is a professor at Stanford University in California.Report: Cost of Ebola could top $32 billionWASHINGTON (AP) Ebolas economic toll could reach $32.6 billion by years end if the disease ravaging Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone spreads across West Africa, the World Bank said Wednesday. The outbreak has the potential to inict massive economic costs on those three countries and its closest neighbors, according to the banks assessment. The international community must nd ways to get past logistical roadblocks and bring in more doctors and trained medical staff, more hospital beds and more health and development support to help stop Ebola in its tracks, said Jim Yong Kim, the banks president.EU nations mull funds to aid clean energy in 2030 BRUSSELS (Bloomberg) European Union governments are considering the use of carbon-permit funds to help nance clean technologies and spur poorer nations toward a low-carbon economy under a planned deal on 2030 climate and energy policies. The blocs 28 countries may renew a special carbon-permit reserve which yielded 2.2 billion euros ($2.8 billion) for renewable energy and carbon-capture projects over the past four years and extend its scope, according to draft guidelines prepared for an Oct. 23-24 summit of EU leaders in Brussels. Countries may also agree to create a new fund, which would help nance investment in low-income member states, the document obtained by Bloomberg News shows. EU leaders pledged in June to seek an agreement by October on a climate and energy framework for the next decade.Rise in bluefin tuna quota expectedTOKYO (Yomiuri Shimbun) Fishing quotas for bluen tuna allocated to Japan and other nations in the eastern Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea will likely be expanded by a total of about 10,000 tons annually next year and beyond, based on a consensus reached at an intergovernmental tuna conservation panel. The increase reects a recovery in the amount of such shery resources in recent years, according to observers. The International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) is set to release a report within the week detailing the agreement reached by its science panel over the growth in the bluen tuna catch, according to sources. Fishing quotas in the eastern Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea stand at 13,400 tons in 2014.Sharif to meet advisers over Kashmir violenceISLAMABAD (Bloomberg) Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will meet his top security advisers Friday as the death toll from the worst clashes with India in more than a year in the contested region of Kashmir climbed to at least 14. Sharifs administration hasnt had direct contact with Indias government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi since the shooting began, Sartaj Aziz, Pakistans adviser on foreign affairs, said Wednesday in a phone interview. Pakistan will decide its next course of action after the meeting, he said. At this point, we are monitoring the situation and analyzing it, Aziz said. Ten Pakistani civilians were killed and at least 40 wounded in the rst three days of ghting, according to a Pakistan military ofcial who asked not to be identied because hes not authorized to speak with the media. The latest bloodshed between the nuclear-armed neighbors may further derail efforts to mend relations marred by decades of mistrust and terrorist attacks. Optimism spurred by Sharifs attendance at Modis inauguration in May dissipated in August, when India scrapped formal talks between the nations. 50472332 Joseph H.

(AP) Church officials and preservationists are trying to figure out what happened to several 1.5-ton gargoyles from a Massachusetts church. The church in Worcester is a one-fifth scale replica of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. It was built in the 1890s and was formerly known as the Chestnut Street Congregational Church. It now is owned by an Assembly of God congregation and is on the market for $2.5 million. The crumbling building was slated for demolition a decade ago but was saved with the help of Preservation Worcester. The groups director tells The Telegram & Gazette the 3,000pound gargoyles were removed for safety reasons by a construction company that went out of business. The companys assets were sold at auction, and the fear is the gargoyles were sold.ODD NEWS Hunt on for 1.5-ton church gargoyles the dose in half, for each nostril. Its easy, and participants preferred the DIY method, Millar said. That doesnt mean its ready for broader use, said Dr. Jonathan Temte, a University of Wisconsin family medicine specialist who heads a panel that advises the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on vaccine policy. Its a very interesting concept and I can denitely see some benets for overcoming vaccine hesitation, Temte said. Before anyone could endorse this in children, one would have to have an appropriately designed study that shows equal efcacy, equal safety, and then the acceptability. There are other good reasons to keep health care workers involved where kids are concerned, he said. A yearly u vaccination is recommended for nearly everyone over 6 months old, but children 6 months to 8 years of age getting their very rst u vaccine need two doses at least four weeks apart. Health workers also need to ensure the vaccine gets in, and that parents would not squirt it into a nose full of discharge, he said. The study was sponsored by the U.S. Military Vaccine Agency. Results are to be presented later this week at a meeting of the Infectious Diseases Society of America and several other groups in Philadelphia.FLUFROM PAGE 1 of Pittsburgh Medical Centers rehabilitation institute and wasnt involved with the experiments. Beyond better function, getting feedback from the limb would be a spectacular thing to be able to have, that you feel like the arm is your own, he said. People with natural limbs take for granted the intuitive control that a sense of touch allows. Reach for something and your hand naturally grasps with just enough force to hang on. But users of prosthetic hands have to watch carefully every motion, judging by eye how tightly to squeeze so they dont either drop something or crush it. Consequently, many amputees abandon prosthetic hands, or dont use them as much as theyd like. Heres how it works: The team at Case Western and the Cleveland Veterans Affairs Medical Center implanted electrodes around three nerves in the stump of the mens arms. Wires snake from under the skin. During monthly visits to a lab, scientists hook the men up to a machine that sends electrical signals between the stump and a prosthetic hand. Sensors on the hand can convey a sense of touch from 16 to 19 spots. At rst, it just felt like electrical tingles, Spetic said. But as researchers adjusted the pattern and intensity of those signals, he started to feel pressure in his missing ngers, and even differ ent textures. The real test was when the men tried plucking grapes and cherries from their stems. Blindfolded, they crushed a lot of fruit until the sensory feedback was switched on and they could gentle their grasp. We can change what theyre feeling and how theyre feeling it, said Case Western biomedical engineer Dustin Tyler, who led the research. Its working by reactivating dormant areas of the brain that produced the sense of touch for that hand, he said. What explains the disappearance of that phantom pain that Spetic described as like a vice gripping his missing st? Tyler said researchers dont know but it may be that making the brain sense a hand is there again, rather than missing, could affect how it interprets pain signals. While the men cant use touch-enabled hands outside of the lab, the under-the-skin electrodes still are working up to two years after they were implanted, important evidence that long-term use of this approach is possible. Tyler hopes to begin real-world study soon. In related research Wednesday, scientists at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden reported that a man there has been wearing a more lifelike prosthetic arm since January 2013, one that attaches to a metal rod implanted in his bone. Bone-anchored prosthetics arent new, but this one allowed for some direct connections to nerves of the remaining arm, allowing a greater range of motion than standard prostheses and some more ne motor control. The study found it has held up to heavy daily use. As for sensation, researchers reported that the man perceived tingling sensations from things he touched at a few locations, and they plan more work to enhance that sensory feedback.TOUCHFROM PAGE 1 become an advocate for the group Compassion & Choices, which seeks to expand death-with-dignity laws beyond Oregon and a handful of other states. A nationwide media campaign featuring Maynards story began Monday, and has gone viral. I cant even tell you the amount of relief that it provides me to know that I dont have to die the way that its been described to me, that my brain tumor would take me on its own, she says in an online video. Oregon in 1997 became the rst state to make it legal for a doctor to prescribe a life-ending drug to a terminally ill patient of sound mind who makes the request. The patient must swallow the drug without help; it is illegal for a doctor to administer it. More than 750 people in Oregon used the law to die as of Dec. 31, 2013. The median age of the deceased is 71. Only six were younger than 34, like Maynard. The state does not track how many terminally ill people move to Oregon to die. One of the frequently asked questions on the state Public Health Division website is: How long does someone have to be a resident of Oregon to participate in the act? There is no minimum residency requirement, but a patient must prove to a doctor they are living in the state. Some examples of documentation include a rental agreement, an Oregon voter registration card or a state drivers license. Maynard said she and her husband were newly weds actively trying for a family when she learned on New Years Day that she had brain cancer. By spring, she was given just six months to live. I hope to enjoy however many days I have on this beautiful earth and spend as much of it outside as I can surrounded by those I love, Maynard said in the video. Barbara Coombs Lee, the author of Oregons law and the president of Compassion & Choices, said Maynard approached the group in August. Our campaign now is to build public awareness, build public support so great that the politicians can no longer deny it, she said.VICTIMFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTODeath-with-dignity advocate Brittany Maynard and husband Dan Diaz at their wedding. check would have spotted Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who died of Ebola in a Dallas hospital Wednesday morning. Duncan wasnt yet showing symptoms when he arrived in the U.S. A delay in diagnosing and treating Duncan, and the infection of a nurse who treated an Ebola patient in Spain, have raised worries about Western nations ability to stop the disease that has killed at least 3,800 people in West Africa. Speaking by teleconference with mayors and local ofcials, Obama said he was condent the U.S. could prevent an outbreak. But he warned them to be vigilant. As we saw in Dallas, we dont have a lot of margin for error, Obama said. If we dont follow protocols and procedures that are put in place, then were putting folks in our communities at risk. Health workers are especially vulnerable to Ebola, which isnt airborne like the u but is spread by contact with the bodily uids of infected people. Around the world, health authorities scrambled to respond to the disease Wednesday: In Spain, doctors said they may have gured out how a nurse became the rst person infected outside of West Africa in this outbreak. Teresa Romero said she remembered once touching her face with her glove after leaving the quarantine room where an Ebola victim was being treated. Romeros condition was stable. A social media campaign and a protest by Spanish animal rights activists failed to save Romeros dog, Excalibur. The pet was euthanized under court order out of fear it might harbor the Ebola virus. In Sierra Leone, burial teams returned to their work of picking up the bodies of Ebola victims, after a one-day strike to demand overdue hazard pay. Health workers in neighboring Liberia also were threatening a strike if their demands for more money and personal protective gear are not met by the end of the week. The average health worker salary is currently below $500 per month, even for the most highly trained staff. The World Bank estimated that the economic toll of the largest Ebola outbreak in history could reach $32.6 billion if the disease continues to spread through next year. In Washington, Secretary of State John Kerry made a plea for more nations to contribute to the effort to stop the disease ravaging West Africa, saying the international effort was $300 million short of whats needed. He said nations must step up quickly with a wide range of support, from doctors and mobile medical labs to basic humanitarian aid such as food. As for Duncan, the rst victim to die in the U.S., he had shown no symptoms when he left Liberia for the United States but fell ill several days after arriving on Sept. 20. His treatment and the effort to isolate anyone exposed to him were delayed because doctors failed to diagnose the disease the rst time he showed up at a hospital emergency room with fever and abdominal pain and said he had been in West Africa. The case revealed gaps in the nations system for isolating the virus and raised questions about whether he could have been saved if treated sooner. Early detection and treatment are crucial.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 KIEV, Ukraine (Bloomberg) Ukrainian rebels in the Donetsk region said a month-old truce is all but dead and renewed calls for independence as ghting intensied, claiming 10 lives. There is no truce, buffer zones are non-existent, the deputy premier of the self-proclaimed Donetsk Peoples Republic, Andrei Purgin, said via Russian state news service RIA Novosti. Purgin said some estimates put the number of deaths from ghting in the Donetsk region alone at 9,000 in the past six months, though the gure is probably closer to 4,000 or 5,000. That compares with a United Nations estimate of 3,660 deaths and 8,756 injuries in all of eastern Ukraine. At least 331 of those fatalities ocurred after the belligerents agreed to a cease-re in Minsk, Belarus, on Sept. 5, the U.N. said yesterday. Such casualties make any political union with Ukraine impossible, Purgin was cited as saying by phone Wednesday. Ukraine, the U.S. and the European Union blame Russia for providing weapons, nancing and troops to the separatists, a charge Moscow denies. The two sides have exchanged tit-for-tat sanctions that have depressed economic growth in both the EU and Russia, causing the latter to irt with a recession. Purgin said his government is ready to resume peace talks in Minsk once Russia and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe agree on the conditions, according to RIA. The truce accord, signed by representatives of the rebels, Ukraine, Russia and the OSCE, has yet to be fully observed. While the rebels will continue to ght if government troops seek to oust them from their strongholds, theyre prepared for more peace talks at any time, Purgin told RIA. We are not the Taliban and are always ready for negotiations, Purgin said. The rebel administration in Donetsk said on its website that it had created its own central bank, without providing details. It earlier said it would allow both Russian rubles and Ukrainian hryvnia to circulate on its territory for some time to come, according to the Novorossia news website.Ukraine rebels renew independence demand

The u can knock you out for weeks, warns Consumer Reports and thats if youre a healthy young adult. For the young, the old and those with weak immune systems, the risks of complications, such as pneumonia, are much higher. The best way to protect yourself is to get vaccinated soon. This years vaccine is the same as last years, but you still need a fresh one this season. If you get it now, it should protect you through April, when the virus subsides. The vaccine prevents the illness up to 80 percent of the time in adults younger than 60 and about half of the time in those 65 and older. If you do get sick after being vaccinated, you usually contract a milder case. Consumer Reports offers these five ways to combat the flu: 1. Consider the new quadrivalent shot. The standard shot, called the trivalent, protects against three of the most common u strains from last year: two inuenza A (H1N1 and H3N2) viruses, and one inuenza B virus. The quadrivalent version, which came out last year, protects against those plus another inuenza B virus. The B strains are the ones most active at the end of the u season, in February and March. Manufacturers are making more of the quadrivalent vaccine this year, so you should be able to get it at your doctors ofce or a local pharmacy. 2. Dont rush to get the highdose vaccine. This vaccine, called Fluzone High-Dose, has four times the standard shots flu-antigen dose. And a manufacturer-supported study in the Aug. 14 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine found that it was slightly more likely than the standard vaccine to prevent the flu in people 65 and up. But the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that the high-dose version might be more likely to cause side effects, including headache, muscle aches and fever. So Consumer Reports medical experts say older people should weigh the possible risks and benefits of the vaccine when deciding which shot to choose. 3. Get the nasal spray for kids. This vaccine, called FluMist, will protect children ages 2 through 8 better than the regular shot, the CDC says in a new-for-this-season recommendation. The downside: A second dose may be necessary a month later. 4. Dont wait to take anti-viral drugs if youre at high risk. The drugs oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and zanamivir (Relenza) can ease flu symptoms, reduce complications and cut the chance of spreading the disease if you start taking one within 48 hours of getting sick. But a CDC study out in July found that only about 1 in 5 high-risk patients got the drugs. If you have symptoms and are in a high-risk group, ask your doctor for anti-viral drugs, says the CDCs Dr. Fiona Havers, one of the authors of the study. Dont wait three or four days, she says. Youre at high risk if you are 65 or older; are pregnant or delivered a baby within two weeks; have a chronic disease such as asthma, diabetes or heart disease; have a suppressed immune system; are obese; or live in a nursing home or other chronic-care facility. 5. Just say no to antibiotics for flu. The drugs work only against bacteria and the flu is caused by a virus. Yet the same CDC study found that doctors gave antibiotics to 30 percent of people with the flu. Using those drugs when you dont need them can make them less effective when they are necessary and increases the risk of hard-totreat bacterial infections such as Clostridium difficile. Instead, go for the tried-and-true: plenty of sleep and fluids, and over-the-counter drugs. Acetaminophen (Tylenol and generic), ibuprofen (Advil and generic) and naproxen (Aleve and generic) reduce fever and headache. 5 ways to fight the flu NEW YORK (AP) Wall Street had its best day of the year. The U.S. stock market surged Wednesday, erasing a steep loss from the day before. Investors were encouraged by the minutes from the Federal Reserves latest policy meeting, which showed that the central bank wants to keep interest rates extremely low for the time being. Theres a lot of pressure on the Fed right now, so this was a big vote of condence from investors, said J.J. Kinahan, chief strategist at TD Ameritrade. The Dow Jones jumped 274.83 points, or 1.6 percent, to 16,994.22. The Standard & Poors 500 index added 33.79 points, or 1.8 percent, to 1,968.89 and the Nasdaq composite rose 83.39 points, or 1.9 percent, to 4,468.59. All three indexes had their biggest point and percentage gains of 2014. The jump was the latest whipsaw day for the stock market. Only the day before, the Dow plunged 273 points on fears that the global economy was slowing. Wednesdays gains only made up for what investors lost on Tuesday. Volatility has picked up sharply in U.S. stocks in recent days. Dow has had moves of 200 points or more ve times in the last 10 days. There have only been six other days this year when the index has made moves of that magnitude. Market watchers warned for some time now that the market was due to have more volatility, particularly with economic weakness developing in Europe and Asia and with the Federal Reserve on track to end a bond-buying stimulus program later this month. Analysts say investors should prepare to see more big moves in coming weeks.US stocks have their best day of 2014 WASHINGTON (AP) Workers who ll customer orders for Internet retailer Amazon might be out of luck in their quest to be paid for time they spend going through security checkpoints each day. Several Supreme Court justices expressed doubts Wednesday during arguments over whether federal law entitles workers to compensation for routine security measures to prevent employee theft. The case is being watched closely by business groups concerned that employers could be liable for billions of dollars in retroactive pay for security check procedures that have become routine in retail and other industries. The dispute involves two former workers at a Nevada warehouse who say their employer, Integrity Stafng Solutions, Inc., made them wait up to 25 minutes in security lines at the end of every shift. Integrity provides staffers for Amazon warehouses. A federal appeals court ruled last year that the workers, Jesse Busk and Laurie Castro, deserved to be paid because the anti-theft screenings were necessary to the primary work performed by warehouse workers and it was done for the employers benet. Mark Thierman, lawyer for the workers, ran into trouble Wednesday when he tried to pursue the argument that walking through security was a principal activity of the workers job duties that requires compensation under the Fair Labor Standards Act. But no ones principal activity is going through security screenings, said Chief Justice John Roberts. It may be part of that, that you go through security at the end of the day, but that doesnt make it a principal activity. Justice Antonin Scalia said the security check is not indispensable to taking care of the activity in the warehouse. You wouldnt pay anybody just to come in and go through security, said Justice Samuel Alito. Thierman argued that the screening was a discrete act that happened only after workers had clocked out and handed in their tools. Its work because you are told to do it, Thierman said. Integrity claims no extra pay is required because the security clearances are unrelated to the workers core job duties.Court hears dispute over pay for security checks

PETERSBURG (AP) Anthropologists investigating the deaths of dozens of boys at a closed Florida reform school dug up a decades-old grave in Philadelphia looking for the body of one of the boys only to nd a casket lled with wood. The Tampa Bay Times reported that University of South Florida forensic researchers, with per mission from ofcials in Pennsylvania, exhumed the grave on Tuesday. They were expecting to nd the body of Thomas Curry, who died in 1925 from what a coroner said was a crushed skull after running away from the Dozier School for Boys in Marianna. They dug down 6 feet to Currys casket and found a partially intact wooden box. They found thumbscrews used to clamp shut the casket that were identical to those found in burials on the Florida reform school campus. A small cross, like a rosary necklace, was atop the casket. But inside, there was no body, no human remains. Where the boy shouldve been, they found wood. The discovery shocked the researchers, Philadelphia archdiocese ofcials, the Pennsylvania state police troopers helping, and the local assistant district attorney, who expressed his exasperation with quiet expletives as he paced around the burial shaft, the newspaper reported. Where is he? asked Pennsylvania state police Cpl. Thomas McAndrew. I just cant believe it, said USF forensic anthropologist Erin Kimmerle, who is leading the research. It dees logic. No one can say whether ofcials at the reform school shipped a box lled with wood to a grieving family in Philadelphia, or whether someone removed Currys body when it ar rived and held a funeral for a box with no body inside. Curry met his death by some railroad tracks near Chattahoochee in 1925, trying to run away after serving just 29 days for delinquency at the hellish reform school some 20 miles away. The coroner who examined his body couldnt tell what killed him. (C) ame to his death from a wound to the forehead, skull crushed from unknown cause, wrote Chattahoochee coroner L.H. Sanders on the boys death certicate. His body was shipped by train to his grandmother in Philadelphia, where services were held at a Catholic church, and a box was buried at the Old Cathedral Cemetery in West Philadelphia, on top of a casket that held his great-grandmother. Burial records at the archdiocese show the exact spot where Curry was buried and name the church that hosted the funeral. The records go even further, saying he was killed by train, which seems to contradict the coroners verdict. It was common at the reform school, known most recently as the Dozier School for Boys until it closed in 2011, for armed guards to search for runaways. One long-time guard told the Times in 2009 that school ofcials referred to it as boy hunting. Sometimes trustees from a nearby prison, known as dog boys, were called in to help search. Former wards have told the Times that they were brutally beaten after being caught while trying to escape. Researchers hoped to perform a skeletal autopsy on Curry to determine how he was killed. Now, they say, theyll continue to search for his remains. So far, theyve unearthed 55 burials from a cemetery on the Marianna school campus, far more than the state determined were buried there. Using DNA, theyve identied three boys and handed over their remains to family members who long wondered where their loved ones were buried.Boys decades-old coffin found empty | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATEEnterovirus confirmed in Florida girl (Orlando Sentinel) The Florida Department of Health said on Wednesday the state had its first case of Enterovirus D68 in a 10-year-old Polk County girl. The health department said the girl is recovering, but didnt provide any other details. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said four people with the disease have died nationwide, although its not clear what role it played in their deaths. EV-D68, which has flu and cold-like symptoms, can cause difficulty breathing in infants and young children, officials said. Florida OKs 1st death certificate for gay coupleFORT MYERS (AP) Florida has issued its rst death certicate recognizing a same-sex couple. The Florida Department of Health on Wednesday issued an updated death certicate that listed Fort Myers resident Arlene Goldberg as the surviving spouse of Carol Goldwasser. With the death certicate, the couple became the rst same-sex couple whose marriage is recognized by the state. Goldberg and Goldwasser married in New York in 2011. Goldwasser died last March. Because Florida didnt recognize the marriage, Goldberg was unable to get Goldwassers Social Security survivors benets. Goldberg joined a lawsuit challenging Floridas ban on same-sex marriages.Atlantic hurricane season weakest so far since SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) This years Atlantic hurricane season is shaping up to be one of the weakest in decades with only ve named storms formed in the region so far this year. Thats the fewest named storms formed during a single full season in the Atlantic since 1983, when there were four. Forecasters have projected another two named Atlantic storms for the rest of the season that ends on Nov. 30. But there are no signs of any new ones spinning off Africas west coast during what is usually the seasons peak period mid-August to late October. Weve been very fortunate so far, said Dennis Feltgen, a meteorologist with the Miami-based National Hurricane Center.Fla. Gov. Scott sued over finances by AG candidateTALLAHASSEE (AP) The nances of Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a wealthy multimillionaire, are coming under renewed scrutiny just weeks before his bid for re-election. George Sheldon, a Democrat running for attorney general, led a lawsuit on Wednesday that contends that Scott may have underreported his actual wealth by as much as $200 million. The lawsuit, which Scotts campaign derided as mudslinging, asks a judge to declare that Scott is breaking the states nancial disclosure law. Sheldons lawsuit, handled by an attorney who is a top donor to former Gov. Charlie Crist, also calls on a judge to force him to immediately and accurately disclose all assets he controls or owns.State: 2014 was a good year for sea turtle nestingTALLAHASSEE (AP) State wildlife researchers say 2014 was a good year for sea turtle testing in Florida. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the number of loggerhead turtle nests remained high and the number of leatherback turtle nests reached a record this year. Researchers surveyed more than 800 miles of Florida beaches for two reports that document the number of nests and nesting trends. Officials said the number of green turtle nests dropped this year compared to 2013, but they say the drop was expected due to cyclical fluctuations in nesting patterns for that species. Overall, green turtle nesting trends have shown an exponential increase over the last 26 years. Commission researcher Simona Ceriana says the nesting season tallies are encouraging for the future of these endangered species.

The Lightning open the regular season tonight against the Panthers.TAMPA Steven Stamkos is one of the best hockey players in the world and the captain of the Tampa Bay Lightning but he can still enjoy his off-time in the bay area in an anonymous manner. The center loves to golf, his passion since his grandfather Joe Walker got him started at age 7; hes now a 6 handicap. Stamkos goes paddleboarding and often takes his dog, Trigger, a 100-pound Swiss Mountain, to the dog beach or for a walk in the South Tampa waterfront neighborhood he has lived in for seven years. And Stamkos, 24, said he can go unrecognized, a welcomed respite from his offseasons in his hometown near Toronto. I think I can enjoy that fact that you get enough notoriety around town but you dont get too much, he said. You can go to the mall, go to dinner, go to the golf course, go to the beach, and for the most part you dont get bothered too much. Its nice to kind of y under the radar. But as Tampa Bay opens the NHL regular season tonight against the Florida Panthers at Amalie Arena, all eyes will be on Stamkos, who is a popular preseason candidate for the Hart Trophy (league MVP) and Art Ross (top scorer).

You handle things in life and you move forward, Muschamp said Wednesday. Thats what were going to do. Muschamp made his rst public comments since it was announced Monday that freshman quarterback Treon Harris had been suspended indenitely while author ities investigate sexual assault allegations made against him. Its a very serious charge and theres been no change in his status, Muschamp said. I feel very comfortable in how weve approached this situation. The program banned Harris from all team activities during the investigation. The school said a female student accused Harris of sexually assaulting her around 3 a.m. Sunday hours after he helped Florida rally to beat Tennessee 10-9.

Hes tter, and maybe more explosive, than ever. He hopes for a day he feels like he never broke his leg; its getting closer. The Lightning could see that during tness testing on the rst day of training camp, when Stamkos had team-best marks in the vertical jump (37.7 inches) and broad jump (10 feet, 4 inches). His vertical was 2.7 inches higher than before his injury. Very impressive, general manager Steve Yzerman said. Teammates can sense it on the ice, watching the power and speed in Stamkos skating, his fearlessness in battles during preseason games, including Saturdays nale against the Panthers. In the rst period, Stamkos scored a power play goal, ripping a slap shot from the right circle into the top left corner of the net. He looks like Stammer, defenseman Victor Hedman said. And for all Stamkos has accomplished in his rst six years in the NHL two Rocket Richard trophies (top goal scor er), two All-Star Game appearances, a 60-goal season he and the Lightning believe the best might be yet to come. Hes just entering the prime years of his career, said Yzerman, a Hall of Famer. Hes a highly motivated guy. Hes improved his tness every year. Being that driven, youre naturally going to get better over time. Stamkos is the Lightnings longest-tenured player and the face of the franchise. For the rst time since he arrived in 2008, the Lightning opens a season without Vinny Lecavalier or Marty St. Louis. Its his team. You relish that chance, he said. Its pretty cool to honestly be on one team for so long and be a guy thats been here since I was 18 years old and continue to grow into a leader and a better player and person and get involved in the community. Its fun. Tampa is pretty much my home. Hopefully now its kind of a fresh page. Its a new fresh start. Hopefully we take advantage of it. Stamkos said he likes the organizations direction, having nished third in the Eastern Conference last season. He couldnt be happier with Yzerman and what he calls an unbelievable owner in Jeff Vinik. Vinik wants Stamkos, under contract the next two years, to nish his career in Tampa Bay. For that, Vinik will have to pay a hefty price when negotiations on an extension can start July 1. The Blackhawks eight-year, $84 million extensions to star forwards Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are a good guide. Stamkos said he can envision being a Lightning lifer. My goal is to win, and thats what I want, Stamkos said. Were on the right path right now. We made a big step last year. I want to be part of that. I want to be winning a Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning. And hopefully that can happen.STAMKOSFROM PAGE 1 BOSTON Chris Kelly scored the tiebreaking goal with 1:51 left in the third period, and Tuukka Rask made 21 saves to lead the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in their season opener Wednesday night. Reilly Smith also scored for Boston, which nished with the best record in the NHL last season but couldnt get past the second round of the playoffs. Sean Couturier scored for Philadelphia, and Steve Mason stopped 31 shots. It was 1-all when Mason deected Adam McQuaids slap shot from the blue line into the air. The puck came down in the crease, and Kelly swiped it in while Bostons Loui Eriksson also had a shot at it.

The Sun /Thursday, October 9, 2014 SP Page 3 ORLANDO In just one play last week, BYU went from having one of nations most explosive offensive players and daydreaming about a possible undefeated season, to facing a remaining schedule now soaked in questions. The Cougars (4-1) have had a short week to adjust to losing Heisman Trophy hopeful quarterback and leading rusher Taysom Hill to a season-ending broken leg during their loss to Utah State last week. The loss dropped BYU out of the top 25, but coach Bronco Mendenhall is hoping his team can begin to put things back together tonight when it visits UCF. His rst task is to convince his team that it is deeper than one player. I think there was a level of condence, I wouldnt say dependence, Cougars coach Bronco Mendenhall said this week of Hill. Taysom is gone. One player does not make a team, even though Taysom is a fantastic player, but the execution of all positions within their assignment, within their technique that has to improve right now. That begins with senior quarterback Christian Stewart, who will make his rst start as a Cougar against the Knights. He struggled last week in relief of Hill last week, completing 10 of 29 passes for 172 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions. Stewart will face a Knights defense that has steadily improved in backto-back victories the past two weeks. UCF has given up just 19 points combined in the wins, after surrendering 26 and 31 points in two losses to open the season. But Knights coach George OLeary doesnt expect to have an easier time with Hill out. BYU is BYU, OLeary said. With Stewart, theyre doing a lot of the same things they were doing with (Hill) in the game. And they have enough personnel groups, theyre gonna mix and match and Im sure theyll tweak some things. But offenses, I think for the most part when you get to the fourth or fth game thats who you are. Here are some things to watch for in tonights matchup: QB SHUFFLE FOR UCF? OLeary said recent inconsistency from sophomore quarterback Justin Holman could prompt him to insert sophomore backup Nick Patti at some point against BYU. If were struggling at all at quarterback, hes gonna see action, OLeary said. We just gotta get things going offensively. We have too many good players at certain positions that we need to get the ball in their hands and we gotta get it to them quickly, and do the things that were supposed to do. RETURNING HOME After beginning the season with a neutral site game against Penn State and trips to Missouri and Houston last week, the Knights are playing just their second true home game of 2014. Entering the week only UCF and Eastern Michigan had not played at least two games in their home stadium. VERSUS THE AMERICAN BYU is 18-2 against American Athletic Conference teams, having defeated Connecticut 35-10 on the road and Houston 33-25 at home earlier this season. The Cougars beat the Knights in 2011 in Provo in the only previous meeting between the teams. COUGAR TARGETS Stewart will have a capable receiving corps to throw to in his rst start. Receivers Jordan Leslie and Mitch Mathews both had 100-yard games against Utah State, with Mathews collecting a per sonal-best 117 yards (for 251 yards on the season) and Leslie tallying 135 yards (362 yards in 2014). STREAKING KNIGHTS A win over BYU would give UCF six straight seasons with at least two non-conference victories.BYU takes next step after Hill injury at UCF COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Central FloridaBy KYLE HIGHTOWERASSOCIATED PRESS COUGARS AT KNIGHTSWHO: BYU (4-1) at UCF (2-2, 1-0 AAC) WHEN: Today, 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Bright House Networks Stadium, Orlando TV: ESPN RADIO: No local affiliate TICKETS: TAMPA The play was so pretty that Mike Glennon should want to frame it and hang it on a wall. In the stat book, it went as a 34-yard completion to Tampa Bay receiver Vincent Jackson. But in reality, for a gangly 6-foot-6 quarterback known to be velcroed to the pocket, it was like watching a kid bounding out of school for the summer after the nal bell. On the rst play of the fourth quarter Sunday, facing second and 20 against the Saints, Glennon was ushed left from the pocket by linebacker Junior Galette. Running back Bobby Rainey was covered as he neared the sideline before Glennon spotted Jackson streaking down the middle of the eld. Squaring his shoulders, he oated a perfect pass that traveled 25 yards, hit ting the hands of Jackson while in stride. Coach Lovie Smith likened the play to something so creative youd swear it came from Michael Vick. Quarterbacks coach/ offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo had a more contemporary comparison. I liken him to (Browns quarterback Johnny) Manziel a little bit, you know, Arroyo said Wednesday. He actually said that to me, which was funny. Glennon has had some fun with it as well. On his weekly radio, he listed how the comparisons to Vick were evident. Were both named Mike, he said. Were both from Virginia. I wore No. 7 through high school. And we both had brothers who played at Virginia Tech. In reality, Glennon has gotten a bit of a bad rap. Entering the draft two years ago, one of the knocks was his lack of overall athleticism. And while its true hes not graceful in his movement, his ability to escape pressure, slide or step up in the pocket is adequate. I get it, I get why, Glennon said. But in the NFL against the most elite athletes in the world, theres been plenty of times where Ive rolled right, rolled left and Ive been able to get off a play. Im not the fastest guy in the world. But I can step up in the pocket, I can roll out and make a play downeld. As far as Im concerned, thats all you need as a quarterback. Obviously its a bonus when you can move around as well as some of these other guys, but as long as you can move a little and create a lane to throw, thats good there. In fact, without being pressed, Glennon can recite several instances as a rookie when he was able to escape the pocket, extend the play, keep his eyes downeld and re a strike. I think Ive always done a pretty good job with that, Glennon said. What comes to mind is the Seahawks game last year two times. The same thing, rolling to the left, I made a play. I feel Ive been able to do that. Last year against the Bills, I had a touchdown to Vincent rolling to the right. Theres been many instances. I dont think its much different than last year. Its probably one of the rst times Ive done it this year. NFL: Tampa BayAP PHOTOTampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon passes during last weeks game against the New Orleans in New Orleans.Dare to compareBucs coaches liken Glennon to Vick, Manziel By RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMES RAVENS AT BUCCANEERSWHO: Baltimore (3-2) at Tampa Bay (1-4) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: Raymond James Stadium TV: FOX RADIO: 620 AM, 1580 AM, 103.5 FM TICKETS: NFL NOTEBOOKPeterson hearing set for Dec. 1Prosecutors led a recusal motion to remove Judge Kelly W. Case from hearing the child abuse case against Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson Wednesday during his arraignment hearing in Texas. No plea was entered by Peterson. A tentative date of Dec. 1 has been set pending a ruling on Cases involvement. The judge apologized at the request of the prosecution for describing the district attorneys ofce as media whores. Peterson was indicted last month on one felony count of reckless or negligent injury to a child, which carries a possible sentence of six months to two years in state prison. Saying Peterson is subjected to undue criticism without a chance to respond, defense attorney Rusty Hardin requested Montgomery County courts accelerate the trial start date to the week of Nov. 18, but prosectors objected, asking that the investigation into how photos of Petersons son leaked to media be resolved before trial. Owners approve Pegula: NFL owners unanimously voted to add another member to their club, approving Terry Pegula as the new owner of the Buffalo Bills. The vote took place in Manhattan, where the owners are holding their fall meeting. Pegula purchased the Bills from the estate of original owner Ralph Wilson for $1.4 billion and their bid was unanimously approved by the finance committee on Sept. 17. New Lion Prater voluntarily entered rehab: Suspended four games for violating the NFLs policy on substance abuse after he tested positive for alcohol this offseason, newly-signed Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater spent most of the past month away from football trying just to work on myself as a person in a 12-step recovery program for alcohol addiction at the Hazelden treatment center in Naples. Prater, released by the Denver Broncos last week, signed with the Lions on Tuesday. Just trying to take it a day at a time, Prater, an Estero High School and Central Florida graduate said. Prater said he hasnt had a drink in over a month and a half, since he voluntarily entered Hazelden at the behest of family members. Green re-injures toe: Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green reaggravated his big toe injury while warming up in practice and was carted off the field for further evaluation that included an MRI. After the players finished their stretching before practice, Green walked over to the side of the field and took off his right cleat before throwing it hard to the ground and slamming down his helmet. He was frustrated with the injury, which dates to the season opener at Baltimore. Wednesdays injury report listed Green with a great toe injury. Friel advises league on conduct: Lisa Friel spent 28 years specializing in the prosecution of sex crimes as a district attorney in Manhattan and she is using her experience in law enforcement to direct the NFL on the complex matter of establishing a new personal conduct policy. Although a new policy has not been established, Friel helped the league take initial steps. Commissioner Roger Goodell said during a September press conference that that league would want to have a policy in place by the Super Bowl. Friel said Wednesday more meetings next month could contribute to the policy being implemented sooner. However, Friel does not want the changes to happen without careful consideration from internal and external parties. Around the league: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed wide receiver Eric Page to the practice squad and released tight end Taylor Sloat. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Page spent the 2013 season with Tampa Bay, recording four receptions for 68 yards and two rushes for 14 yards, while serving as the teams primary returner, with 23 punt returns for 251 yards and 22 kick returns for 548 yards. He was also with the Bucs during the 2014 offseason and preseason. ... Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas has been fined $8,268 for his chop block on Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell last Sunday, according to multiple reports. The hit resulted in a strained MCL for Campbell, who could miss a month. ... The Tennessee Titans placed safety Bernard Pollard on season-ending injured reserve and signed cornerback Brandon Ghee.BY THE SPORTS XCHANGE COLTS AT TEXANSWHO: Indianapolis (3-2) at Houston (3-2) WHEN: Today, 8:25 p.m. WHERE: NRG Stadium, Houston TV: CBS/NFL Network report Wednesday after noon, but the majority of it was redacted, with ofcials citing privacy laws. One of the few parts that were viewable provided Harris height, weight, hair color, eye color and date of birth. University of Florida spokeswoman Janine Sykes also outlined the steps for the schools student code of conduct review, which is required under a Department of Education Title IX federal statute. Even if Harris faces no criminal charges, he could still face student code of conduct sanctions. Muschamp declined to answer several questions about the Harris case, including when he found out about the incident, what he told the team and whether he thought Harris has any character aws. He said he felt having a news conference was a little insensitive considering the circumstances, but he expressed a need to move forward and manage your football team. Harris might have been named the starter Monday, although Muschamp said Wednesday that struggling fourth-year junior Jeff Driskel would have played against LSU. Now, Driskel will start and highly touted freshman Will Grier will compete with Skyler Mornhinweg for the backup role. Muschamp laughed off his other off-the-eld situation, even taking a shot at the media by saying, I tell you what, weve made a big one out of this. Mornhinweg and teammate Gerald Willis got into a ght over a pair of missing cleats Monday night. Muschamp said Willis couldnt nd his cleats on an air-drying system, grabbed a pair labeled No. 17 that he thought belonged to close friend and fellow defensive lineman Jordan Sherit. It turned out those belong to Mornhinweg, who changed his number from 17 to 8 this season. Mornhinweg approached Willis about, and things escalated and ended with punches exchanged.GATORSFROM PAGE 1 By La Mesa RV of Sanford 75 Taylor St in Punta Gorda @ the Charlotte Harbor Bridge 9a to dusk daily For Info: 800-269-4583 Class A Diesel Pushers Class A Gas Class C 5th Wheels Travel Trailers Luxury Economical They are all here in one place!

MATCHUPS The Royals won the regular-season series, 4-3. Though both clubs were perennial winners during the 1970s and early s, this is their first meeting in the postseason. They played for the first time in 1969 after the Royals became an expansion team Kansas City won that very first game, then Baltimore took the next 23. Both squads should be well rested with four days off after finishing Division Series sweeps on Sunday. Shields, who pitched for the Tampa Bay Rays from 2006-12, has plenty of experience against Baltimore. He was 2-0 with a 3.21 ERA in two starts against the Os this year and is 11-7, 3.52 ERA in 26 career starts, including two shutouts. Markakis, 21 for 71 (.296) with two HRs and eight RBIs, and Jones, 14 for 46 (.304) with a homer and six RBIs, have the most success against Big Game James. Tillman shut out the Royals in with a five-hitter in May, but he gave up 20 runs in four previous starts against them. Gordon has homered twice off Tillman in 13 at-bats. The Orioles did not face Vargas this season. In eight games against him, they are hitting .224 (46 for 205). Cruz, in his first season with Baltimore, had four homers and eight RBIs while hitting .333 (10 for 30) for Texas against Vargas. Joseph gives the Orioles the best chance of slowing the Royals running game. He threw out 23 of 57 runners; Hundley only 5 of 27. WATCH FOR Lights out late: Both teams rely on bullpens that were a key to their success early in the playoffs, so runs could be hard to come by in the late innings. Herrera left the ALDS opener against the Angels after five pitches with a strained forearm but tossed a scoreless inning in Game 3. Cruz control: Cruz is often at his best in October. MVP of the 2011 ALCS with Texas, he owns a 1.059 OPS with 16 homers and 32 RBIs in 37 postseason games. Following the Biogenesis investigation, Cruz served a 50-game suspension last year with the Rangers for violating MLBs drug agreement. Then he spurned a $14.1 million qualifying offer from Texas and took an $8 million, one-year deal with Baltimore, plus available bonuses. His power production tailed off during the final two months of the season, but hes turned it back in the playoffs, going 6 for 12 with two homers, five RBIs and four runs in the sweep of Detroit, which started three straight Cy Young Award winners. Associated Press MLB PLAYOFFS: San FranciscoENJOYING THE RIDESAN FRANCISCO Even in his late 30s and a year removed from an ankle injury that cut short his 2013 season in Atlanta, Tim Hudson pictured himself pitching at a high level again. Thats the very reason he took the leap to move back across the country and join the San Francisco Giants, leaving his Georgia roots last fall and returning to his Bay Area baseball beginnings. Now, the veteran righthander is headed to the NL Championship Series in the deepest playoff run of his 16 major league seasons. San Francisco makes its third NLCS appearance in ve years when it opens Saturday at St. Louis, playing its fourth in a row. Hudson is likely to pitch Game 3 of the bestof-seven series Tuesday at AT&T Park. Im toward the end of my career here and its the rst time Ive been past the rst round, Hudson said Wednesday. I dont think theres going to be anybody on the eld thats going to be more emotionally involved than I am for the next series, or two series. Ryan Vogelsong wanted to pitch Hudson into the next round. Tim Lincecum enjoyed the Division Series celebration that much more knowing what it meant to the guy who shares his rst name. Manager Bruce Bochy got a thrill watching Hudson add another accomplishment. If youre not walking in his shoes, to take the magnitude of how many years hes played in this league and to have never been to this point, I cant really describe it for him, right elder Hunter Pence said. If I think in my imagination, I think of 16 years, think of where you were 16 years ago, imagine reaching a milestone youve never reached before. I think any player will say theres no accomplishment greater than what you do as a team in the postseason. Pitching deep into October with a regular contender is something Hudson mentioned right away when he nalized his $23 million, two-year contract last November. The Giants needed Hudson to ll a hole with an experienced starter. Hudson needed the Giants to join a winner as he worked himself back. Hudson was 8-7 with a 3.97 ERA in 21 starts for the Braves before getting hurt and undergoing surgery for a broken right ankle. Hudsons season ended on July 24, 2013, in New York when the Mets Eric Young Jr. inadvertently stepped on the back of his lower right leg while Hudson covered rst base. Hudsons two daughters were born in the Bay Area, where Hudson began his career with the Oakland Athletics in 1999 and won a career-best 20 games the following year. San Francisco had captured two of the previous three World Series titles, in 2010 and This time, the Giants got past the 96-win Nationals, who had the best record in the National League before San Francisco won the best-of-ve series in four games. While the 39-year-old Hudson posted his rst losing record this year at 9-13, he became an AllStar for the fourth time and returned from the injury to make 31 starts over 18913 innings. It means the world when you watch Tim Hudson, 15, 16 years in who has never advanced past the rst round, and you realize how precious these opportunities are, Jake Peavy said.By JANIE MCCAULEYASSOCIATED PRESSAfter 16 years, Tim Hudson advances in playoffs AP PHOTOSan Franciscos Brandon Belt, upper left, high ves Pablo Sandoval after the Giants defeated the Washington Nationals 3-2 in Game 4 of the NL Division Series on Tuesday night to clinch the series and reach the NL Championship Series.AP PHOTOTim Hudson pulls on his cap after Washingtons Asdrubal Cabrera scored in Game 2 of the NL Division Series. MLB NOTEBOOKBeckett retires after 14 seasonsLOS ANGELES Pitcher Josh Beckett, facing surgery for a torn labrum in his left hip that caused him to miss most of the last three months of the season, has retired at 34, ending a 14-year career that included two World Series championships. He threw a no-hitter in May, but landed on the disabled list for the third time in early August with a left hip impingement after being on the DL in July for the same injury. He was 6-6 with a 2.88 ERA in 20 starts, including the no-hitter May 25 at Philadelphia. Becketts rst time on the DL was in March, when he had a bruised right thumb. He announced his decision to retire in St. Louis after the Dodgers were eliminated in the National League Division Series on Tuesday night, according to Beckett will undergo hip surgery in May. He had a career record of 138-106 and a 3.88 ERA. He won the World Series with the Marlins in 2003 and Red Sox in 2007. His departure frees up $15.75 million in payroll. Another off day in the majors: Baseballs postseason caps a two-day break today after none of the four Division Series went the full five games. The action starts up again Friday night when Kansas City visits Baltimore in the AL Championship Series opener. Big Game James Shields pitches for the wild-card Royals against Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman. The best-of-seven playoff matches surprising squads that have never met in the postseason. Baltimore seeks its first pennant since 1983. Kansas City is in the playoffs for the first time since winning the 1985 World Series. Over in the National League, its San Francisco and St. Louis in a rematch of their 2012 NLCS, won by the Giants after they rallied from a 3-1 series deficit. Game 1 is Saturday night at Busch Stadium. A-Rod in another court battle: Alex Rodriguez is preparing to return to the New York Yankees next season, but his legal problems are not quite over. Rodriguez is being sued by one of his former lawyers for unpaid legal bills stemming from his battle to overturn Major League Baseballs suspension for his role in the Biogenesis scandal. At the pretrial hearing in federal court in Manhattan, U.S. District Court Judge William H. Pauley III took a few jabs at the Yankees third baseman. Rodriguezs suspension will end after the World Series and is expected to rejoin the Yankees in February for spring training. Rodriguez, 39, has three years and $61 million left on his contract. Around the majors: Dan ODowd resigned as the Colorado Rockies general manager after 15 years, four winning seasons and two postseason appearances.FROM WIRE REPORTSA-Rod, sued by his former lawyer, back in court NUMBERS GAME5Times that both teams leading their league in wins lost early in the postseason since it expanded from four teams to eight in 1995, according to STATS Angels and Nationals this year; Yankees and Phillies in 2011; Angels and Cubs in 2008; Yankees, Athletics and Braves in 2002; and White Sox and Giants in 2000.8Games decided by a home run through 16 playoff games this year, a higher ratio than the 32.6 percent mark during the regular season this year, according to STATS. The Cardinals, who hit only 105 homers during the regular season, scored 13 of their 18 runs in the NLDS against the Dodgers on home runs.

MIAMI LeBron James was welcomed at Dwyane Wades wedding last month. Udonis Haslem continues to maintain a friendship with his former teammate. Chris Andersen still wears his sneakers. Theres no venom, no hatred, not even trash-talking. There isnt much of anything. So when the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers James former team against James for mer-turned-current team meet in a preseason game Saturday in Rio de Janeiro, it will not be some sort of streetght, one team enraged because the player who helped them to four straight NBA Finals left to go back to his hometown team. Besides, its not like the game counts, anyway. Not right now, said Heat forward Chris Bosh, but on Christmas Day. Thats the rst real meeting with James as a Heat opponent again, when Cleveland visits Miami on one of the leagues biggest days, and surely that will be a matchup that commands much more fanfare than this one will. The Miami vs. Cleveland matchup in Brazil barely registered a blip when announced in April, and the outcome will likely be forgotten before the regular season opens later this month. Still, Cavaliers coach David Blatt said, Im sure, Im sure, they understand that its a particular kind of game. Around the league: Frank Vogel signed a multiyear contract extension with the Indiana Pacers, ending any speculation about his job security. Terms were not disclosed. In Jacksonville, John Wall scored 14 points to lead the Washington Wizards to a 94-89 preseason victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. In Philadelphia, Nerlens Noel had 10 points, nine rebounds and three blocks to lead the 76ers 106-92 preseason win against the Charlotte Hornets. In Hartford, Conn., Derek Fisher lost his coaching debut with the New York Knicks when Jared Sullinger scored 23 points to lead the Boston Celtics to a 106-86 preseason victory. In Berlin, former Xavier forward Jamel McLean scored at the buzzer to give Alba Berlin a 94-93 victory over the NBA champion San Antonio Spurs.No heat when Miami, LeBron meet yet NBA NOTEBOOKBy TIM REYNOLDSASSOCIATED PRESS CAVS VS.

Page 6 SP The Sun /Thursday, October 9, 2014 NORTH PORT Most area high school seniors top out at four years of varsity experience, but Imagine School senior middle Morgan Sarver considers herself extra lucky, with ve seasons under her belt. Sarver, who was honored Tuesday with classmate Cynthia Fussell on the Sharks inaugural senior night, joined the team in its rst year. Already taller than most other eighth graders, she was thrown into the action right away. Looking back, wow, we were just so bad at the beginning, Sarver said. We had a group of girls who had barely played before and we were all on varsity. It has been a very long road, but Im so proud of us now. Imagine won its rst match of the season on senior night, something Fussell said was the best gift her team could give her. Its so weird to think that this is it, were done after this, said Fussell, a four-year starter. I havent even thought about what it will be like not to play volleyball (with these teammates) anymore. Twinkle, twinkle, rising stars: Venice transfers Hope and Faith Price seem to have adjusted well to life as Pirates. The twin sisters currently lead the team in several categories this season, including kills (176, Hope), aces (44, Hope) and assists (Faith, 423), and are in second place in many other areas as well. Brooklin Sharpe leads Port Charlotte in blocks with 23, while teammate Emily Treasure works defense in the back row with a teambest 350 digs. Be aware: October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and because of it the color pink is popping up everywhere. Lemon Bay wore pink jerseys last week to do its part, and the Tarpons will wear hot pink socks throughout the month. Imagine has similar-colored socks to support the cause along with pink ribbons on their jerseys, and DeSoto County will sport pink jerseys. North Port hosted its pink night Tuesday, decorating its gym in the honorary color and wearing pink bandannas. Coming soon: Now that Imagine has five years of volleyball under its belt, coach Milko Obragovich said the next step is to strengthen ranks. Starting next season, he hopes to have enough middle schoolers to move up to junior varsity, to get a jump start on the high school experience. That way, Obragovich figures, by the time those future Sharks are old enough to play varsity sports, they will already be well-seasoned and give Imagine a chance to compete. I cant wait to see what it will be like in another five years from now, Obragovich said. The program will take a while, for all of us to grow, but if you think where (our current team) would be right now if they had had that. They would be killing it right now. Senior Sharks take a look backBy DAWN KLEMISHSUN CORRESPONDENT PREP VOLLEYBALL NOTEBOOKTwin transfers lead Pirates in multiple stat categories DONT MISS THESE GAMESThe regular season winds down next week and brings with it the final jockeying for post season position. While Saturdays Gene Gorman Invitational has no district implications the all-day tourney hosted by Charlotte and featuring the Tarpons, Bobcats, DeSoto County and teams from Fort Myers and Sarasota always draws a crowd. Gates open at 9a.m. and cost is $5. Crosstown rivals Charlotte and Port Charlotte also face off for a final time this season with a 7 p.m. Monday tipoff that the Tarpons host. All season long, Charlotte High School boys cross country coach Chris George has run only ve varsity runners at meets. He has more than 20 junior varsity runners eager to get the call to run for the varsity team, but he chooses to risk his team losing a tiebreaker that comes down to the nishes of No. 6 or No. 7 runners. Its worth it to George, though, because those empty varsity spots provide extra motivation for his large group of junior varsity runners to get faster. At last weeks Invitational in Titusville, the Tarpons took second in the junior varsity race behind state powerhouse Belen Jesuit. Juniors Christian Lombardi and Michael Papa were the teams top runners, placing 17th and 18th, respectively, and both running the race in 19 minutes and 55 seconds. While that pair and a few other runners, many of them juniors, have emerged as the best on the junior varsity team, George said hes still not much closer to choosing who will join the varsity squad for the postseason. He said the gap is still too large between his No. 5 varsity runner and his top junior varsity runner. Charlottes district meet is Oct. 31 at Veterans Park in Lehigh Acres, where the Tarpons took fth place at the Fort Myers Optimist Invitational in September. Lemon Bay to skip tri-county meet: The Manta Rays will forgo an opportunity to win a tri-county championship in order to better prepare for the postseason. The tri-county meet will be held on a weekday afternoon for the second year in a row, with this years version taking place Oct. 23 in Sarasota. Lemon Bay coach Joe Casale said he doesnt want to disrupt his teams routine of racing on Friday or Saturday mornings, which theyve done all season and will continue to do throughout the postseason. The Manta Rays will instead race the following morning at the Celtic Invitational in Naples as one final tune-up for the District 2A-12 meet in Immokalee. North Port to see where it stacks up: The Bobcats will compete at the FSU Invitational in Tallahassee this weekend at the site that will host the state meet in November. North Port did not compete at the Invitational, where many of the states top teams competed, last weekend, but it will see several powerhouse teams in Tallahassee. The Bobcat girls have placed third in all four meets theyve run in so far this season, but this will likely be their biggest test until the postseason.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or spots spark Tarpons JV runners PREP CROSS COUNTRY NOTEBOOKManta Rays skip meet with eyes on the postseasonBy ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER UP NEXTCharlotte, Port Charlotte, Venice: at Disney World Classic, Orlando, Saturday, 10:35 a.m. North Port: at FSU Invitational, Tallahassee, Saturday, 8 a.m. was walking (in the pregame ceremony), they do the little What memory do you have from this season? and she said, Beating Lemon Bay. So (the Lemon Bay team) said, Lets give them another memory. Thats exactly what the Manta Rays did. After seeing the Bobcats control the matches offensively in the teams rst two meetings this season, the Mantas looked like a different team on Wednesday. They were able to attack more over the top against North Ports height at the net, which resulted in nearly 50 kills. Caitlin Montgomery and Maureen Ryan led that charge, recording 18 and 15 kills, respectively. Their offense was not working as well as that (in the rst two matches). They denitely improved, North Port coach Bency Halbert said. And we were struggling early on in the rst two games without offense. And the rst two times we played them, we played with a lot of control, placing the ball really well. Tonight it was a little bit more of a challenge. The Bobcats played the Mantas close all night, as the biggest margin for either team was six points. After losing Games 1 and 2, North Port rode a 7-3 run to win Game 3 and built a 20-15 lead in Game 4. But the Mantas charged back, using four kills and an ace from Ryan to erase the decit and take the match. You could kind of tell in warmups, and I was like, This could be a fun game tonight, DeWolfe said. They were ready. They wanted to play. Not walking in scared is a big thing against North Port. The crowd played a factor, too. Ofcials stopped play twice because of inappropriate comments being made in the bleachers, and at least four fans were asked to leave the gym. The fans were, unfor tunately, a big distraction for us. Not for them they were ne, Halbert said. But it was a big momentum-stopper for us to have the fans out of control. And thats kind of frustrating to have in the middle of a match. It had the opposite effect on the Mantas. Said DeWolfe: That actually red up the team.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or Some of the roster is known: seniors Sabrina Murray, Maddie Weed and Kelley Mayo and sophomore midelder Nina Troche are among the locks. But seeing the newcomers interact with the returning players is invaluable to Thomas. It kind of helps me separate who ts where, Thomas said Wednesday. For many teams, the rst varsity practice will come Monday after the roster has been nalized. The teams rst regular-season games come Oct. 27. But the season has to start somewhere, which is why Beisner was beaming Monday. I was excited, Beisner said. I dont know how excited they were to be out here running, but I was excited.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comNEWFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY KATHERINE GODINANorth Port High Schools Aspen Davidson goes up for a spike as Lemon Bays Breanna Soucy tries to block during Wednesdays match in North Port.

Hey, who would hire a slinky, droop-eyed skipper? Personally, my choice must exude condence. He must swagger well, somewhat. Congrats on showing some lovely sherwomen in your Oct. 2 issue, especially the cover girl. This lady somehow managed to keep her nails perfect, hair pretty and merited admiration even though not displaying her belly button, appendectomy incision, and other things best kept o camera. Obviously, she was delighted with her tilapia and radiated the charm of sportshing. I was touched by Tom Johnsons beautiful article and appreciated all the other ne material. My family and I declare your Oct. 2 issue a classic! Marilyn Walker MARILYN: At WaterLine, we appreciate photos of all anglers who are excited about their catches. Also, I gure Capt. Ralph can use this cover shot as ammo the next time Patti gets mad at him for doing some thing dumb, which means he owes me one. I like when Ralph owes me one. As to the arrogant cap tain, that was a fun discussion that we had on the radio show a couple Saturdays ago. For those who missed it, you can go to and click on September 27 to hear the show. I agree with you that you want to see a high level of condence in a charter captain, but that can go too far. Real arrogance is rarely a positive character in anyone. I appreciate your commentary and I declare readers like yourself to be classics.

I like bait and tackle shops. Always have. Theres just something about all the rods and reels and lures, sitting there, waiting to be taken out on the water. I imagine the rods bent over, the reels singing, sh jumping, anglers smiling. It gives me the warm fuzzies. Most such shops have a bit of character, and by that I mean what most folks would call messiness. It might be the shelves crammed with gear, or the smell of shrimp water hanging in the air, or just the general aura of the place. A proper bait and tackle shop is not the sort of place youd expect to nd snooty shoppers. Its a place where real saltof-the-earth shermen can feel at home. So imagine my surprise when I walked into a local shop (I wont say which one; lets call it Fisherman Frankies) and there before my eyes was a oor-to-ceiling rack of stued animals. Now, admittedly, they were all marine-themed sharks, stingrays, turtles, amingos. But right in the middle of a genuine bait shop? Actually, this store has been making some changes lately, adding things like upscale sunglasses cases and actual shirt racks, so I guess this really shouldnt have been such a surprise. But now Im not sure what to call the place. Is it still a bait shop? At what point does it become a boutique? Is there such a thing as a bait boutique? Ive never heard of one, but that doesnt mean anything. Maybe the guys over at Fisherman Frankies are some sort of geniuses, genre-busting entre preneurs at the ragged edge of a new breed of shing tackle retail, one that can draw in both fancy French ladies and charter captains. Maybe. The important thing is that the place at least still smells like a bait shop, so I can still go there. If it starts to smell like rose water, Im out. A bait boutique?

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

Page 8 October 9, 2014 Seawalls are often-overlooked structures that can be gold mines for shore anglers. While piers, bridges and beaches get most of the attention, the subtle seawall oers a dierent perspective and a chance to avoid interacting with anything other than sh. The incoming tide and the subsequent rising water level near seawalls brings bait in with it. In turn, hungry predators like snook, tarpon, redsh and jack crevalle are soon to follow. These sh are the most common catches from the seawalls this time of year around Charlotte Harbor, and can be caught using a variety of live baits and articials. The big four seawalls, if you will, of the Harbor are located at Gilchrist Park and Laishley Park in Punta Gorda, around the bridge spanning the Myakka River in El Jobean and at the base of the U.S. 41 bridges in Port Charlotte. These oer public access. There are many miles of seawalls on private property that you will need to get permission to sh. While the square footage of the seawalls near the bridge in Port Charlotte pales in comparison to the other aforementioned seawalls, it is the most popular among local anglers. They are relatively easy to access and have a key component of any good shing hole: Structure. You can cast right up against the bridge pilings. Here, snook and redsh are the main targets, and black drum are a common catch as well. One deadly tactic is to sh a swimbait on the outgoing tide, letting the current carry it as close to the pilings as you dare. Another option is to oat a live shrimp or pinsh under a popping cork near the power lines. Be careful though, as big portions of this seawall are dilapidated. However you choose to sh this area, make certain of this: There is a lot of structure on the bottom here and it doesnt take much to get hung up. Either learn the terrain or stay o the bottom, instead casting suspending plugs or other arti cials that stay higher in the water column. Since they are in such close proximity to each other, the seawalls at Gilchrist and Laishley oer similar shing. Starting around August, you can nd and sight-sh juvenile tarpon sometimes in incredible numbers from these seawalls. Occasionally the adults will come in close enough for a shot at as well. Look for rolling sh and cast a soft plastic shrimp in the eighth-ounce range or a MirrOlure 17MR MirrOdine. The tarpon will stick around through the early part of fall and sometimes longer. By the time the tarpon start to slow down, snook are usually making a good showing. With several hundred feet of seawall to work with at either Gilchrist or Laishley, these are perfect desti nations for land-trolling swimbaits or diving plugs. Let out about 10 feet of line and let your lure troll behind you as you walk up and down the seawall. Its a great way to cover a lot of ground and nd sh. You can keep your bait right up next to the seawall or make a short cast, depending on where the sh are holding. Last but not least are the superb seawalls of El Jobean. While most folks migrate to the pier, those with a little more sense of adventure have learned to love the seawalls here. Again, its all about the structure. On one stretch along El Jobean you can cast right under a section of the old train trestle the portion opposite the one youre allowed to sh on where some bruiser snook hang out. On other parts of the seawall system, you can get right underneath the bridge and sh the pilings. For many anglers, El Jobean is all about the snook, but can be a good tarpon, cobia and sheepshead destination as well. While other spots are strictly seasonal, the Bean seems pretty consistent in holding sh year-round. Swimbaits and El Jobean go hand in hand, so keep some at the ready if youre headed that way. For stretches of the seawall system that arent exposed to heavy current, its hard to beat the MirrOdine. Until next time, hook em up and ght em hard.

Page 9 October 9, 2014 Its that time of year. You wake up early to enjoy a long day on the water, hoping to be the rst to your favorite shing spot. Unfortunately, looking out the window all you see is a low-ying cloud. Pea soup. Fog, technically described as minute water droplets suspended in the atmosphere, is threatening your plans. Fog diers from a cloud only in that it is at the Earths surface instead of high in the sky. Common sense dictates that you delay your day until the fog lifts and you can safely see to navigate. How long will that take? The answer depends upon the type of fog. Is it radiation, advection, steam (also known as sea smoke) or precipitation fog? We will not go into the details of each type of fog (which are easily found online, if you really want to know). No matter the type, the weather must change to disrupt the conditions causing the fog. This can be heating of the atmosphere as the sun rises, rainfall coming to an end, or a change in wind speed or direction. Obviously, if you havent launched the boat, just sit tight. Have another cup of coee, recheck your tackle and conrm you have all of your safety gear. Avoid boating in fog if at all possible. But what if youre already on the water when the fog begins to develop? In certain parts of the country, advection fog can last for days. Lucky for us, here in Southwest Florida we see mostly radiation fog, which burns o from the sun or a slight increase in wind speed. We can, however, experi ence other types of fog like precipitation fog, which can roll in very quickly. If you are on the water when this occurs, there are a few rules with which you need to be familiar. COLREGS (international nautical rules of the road) dictate that every vessel shall, at all times, maintain a proper lookout by sight and hearing as well as by all available means appropriate in the prevailing circumstances and conditions so as to make a full appraisal of the situation and of the risk of collision. Basically, this means if youre in a collision and do not have a lookout toward the bow, you can be cited. Additionally, all available means includes eyes, ears, binoculars, radar and VHF radio. It is worth mentioning that in more than half of all marine accident hearings, both vessels in a collision have been charged with failure to maintain an eective lookout. Lets assume youre alone, fog is coming in and visibility is quickly diminishing what now? Adjusting to a safe speed is crucial. Safe speed is considered the speed at which you have the ability to stop your vessel within half the range of visi bility. For example, if you can see 50 yards, you must be able to stop within 25 yards. Remember, boats dont have brakes! There are also regulations regarding sound. If you are underway, you must blast your horn one long blast (four to six seconds) every two minutes. If you are stopped but not anchored you must blast your horn two long blasts, repeating every two minutes. If you are anchored hopefully out of the channel give a short (one second) blast followed by a long blast and another short blast. This sequence is to be repeated every minute. Whether anchored or underway, make yourself heard, listen for other boats and pay very close attention to your surroundings. If you want to learn more about fog or all things marine weather-related, come take the Peace River Sail and Power Squadrons weather course starting Nov. 3. We cant control the weather, but we can be prepared for the ever-changing conditions we experience in Southwest Florida.

Page 10 October 9, 2014 An epiphany is a sudden revelation or insight. The lives of shermen and boaters can be full of epiphanies. I had a rather good one leaving the dock one day. I pushed the boat from the dock, put the boat in gear to head home and nothing happened. I shifted into reverse and nothing happened there either. I looked under the console to ensure the linkage was attached. I removed the engine cowl to make sure the linkage was attached there and working. Everything was working as it should but the boat still would not move. After several minutes of troubleshooting and a phone call to possibly have my trailer brought down to where I was, I had an epiphany: This might work better if the boat was running. Hopefully your epiphany moment wont be as stupid as mine. This one is meant to bring a little humor and to show you that charter captains are no dierent than anyone else. Were not special, we dont have superpowers and we still do dumb things. As a sherman, you should have little epiphanies out there on the water all the time. Most are simple things that just click after a little revelation or help from a friend or something you saw on a TV show or found on your own and it makes things happen. Now, the bad news is that epiphanies are usually accompanied by insanity. In fact, an epiphany is required to break the circle of stupidity that insanity brings. Albert Einstein said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting dierent results. Looking back, Im pretty sure most of us are the living embodiment of that denition. We throw the same lure, the same way, over and over hoping for a sh to bite. At some point, something has to change that. It can be as simple as changing your presentation, such as slowing down or speeding up. Never forget that stop is as important as go when using lures. It can be changing your knot. If youre using a loop knot on your lure, try a cinch knot. Using a cinch knot on a lure can sometimes change its action. If the lure has a snap ring on the front, sometimes Ill remove it to help change the action. Something else to try is changing your leader. Going lighter to provide more action in that lure or to make it dive a little deeper. You can also go heavier to accomplish the opposite. Or maybe go longer on your leader to keep your line from being seen. You can also try dierent colors or color combinations. Is the lure too loud or not loud enough? All of these things should be consid ered if youre not producing sh. The same thing goes with live bait. If things arent happening with what youre doing, it may be time to change. Again, the changes can be simple. If youre shing the bottom, try the top (and vice-versa). If youre using whitebait or pinsh, have you ever tried changing where you hook that bait? Most of us nose-hook our bait, but try hooking it across the back or above the anal n. Have you ever noticed that the snook will eat the whitebait that you toss out for chum but ignore the one on your hook? Change your hook placement and watch what happens. If youre using whitebait for snapper and they arent biting, but you know for certain they are there or you can see them just looking at your bait and bolting away, try tearing the back of your bait. You can also give them a squeeze so they appear more wounded. Believe it or not, little things like that can make all the dierence in the world. How about changing locations? Maybe you dont have good waterow, or the sh there arent in a feeding pattern in that spot. Maybe there simply arent any sh there. I cant tell you how many people ask me to help them catch more sh and when I ask them where they sh, they give me one location. When I ask them where else they sh, they say I always go there and only there. Please refer to the above denition of insanity. Just because you caught sh there once doesnt mean youre always going to catch sh there. At some point, the light bulb ought to turn on ... We shermen tend to be creatures of habit, so we will always teeter towards the insanity side of the equation. But if things arent working, you have to make a change. You have to try dierent things. Never be afraid to ask questions. Sometimes that epiphany will come from someone else because youre just being too stubborn to realize it. I still ask people things just for a fresh point of view. Again, just because Im a charter captain doesnt mean I know every thing or Im infallible. If I see something isnt working, Ill usually ask Robert at Fishin Franks his opinion on what Im doing. Hell usually say, Have you tried this? and then that light bulb ashes to life. I can admit that sometimes I need a little help to ip the switch. The question is, can you?Capt.

Page 11 October 9, 2014 MAN FLOATING IN BUBBLE RESCUED BY COAST GUARDORLANDO (AP) A man trying to reach Bermuda in an inatable bubble has been rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard o the coast of Florida after he began suering from fatigue and asked for help. Coast Guard spokeswoman Marilyn Fajardo said in a statement Saturday that air crew were able to safely pick up Reza Baluchi and his vessel Saturday morning. He was transported to a Coast Guard station in Clearwater where he was evaluated and found to be uninjured. Ocials originally received a report of Baluchi oating in the bubble Oct. 1. The Coast Guard arrived on the scene about 70 nautical miles east of St. Augustine to nd him disoriented and inquiring how to get to Bermuda. Crew members from Coast Guard Cutter Webber conveyed the dangers of the proposed trip and asked him to end it, noting his lack of sustainable supplies. Baluchi had only protein bars, bottled water, a GPS and satellite phone aboard his vessel. He initially refused assistance, but ocials continued to monitor his movement until Baluchi activated his locator beacon Saturday because of fatigue.$10 MILLION UP FOR GRABSDust o that eighth-grade science project. It could be worth $10 million. All you have to do is solve one of the most formidable environmental challenges in the world: Create a technology that removes phosphorus from South Florida waterways, use it to remove those pollutants from the Everglades and recycle the phosphorus into phosphate. The Everglades Foundation is oering $10 million to anyone who can gure out how to clean up south Florida waterways as part of what it calls The Grand Challenge. The project will formally launch in February, and Everglades Foundation representatives say they expect the prize will be claimed by 2022. Excess nutrients have plagued South Florida waters for decades. Sources of the pollu tion include cattle and crop farming operations, septic tanks and heavy stormwater runo. Those nutrients can and do feed algal blooms in fresh and saltwater systems. Water quality scientists say those nutrients can also make red tide outbreaks stronger as well as longer. The Everglades Foundation can be reached at 305-251-001 or GULF WHALES IN TROUBLEResearchers have called for urgent protection for a unique Gulf of Mexico whale that studies suggest could be one of the most endangered species in the world. This specic type of Brydes whale live in waters o the Florida panhandle. Latest calculations show there are only 50 left living under severe threat of habitat destruction. The whales were recently found to be genetically dierent from any other whale found anywhere in the world. This is a small population that is in dicult straits their numbers are under 50, theyre struggling to exist in one of the most heavily industrialized bodies of water in the world, said Michael Jasny from the Natural Resources Defense Council. The NRDC are petitioning to have the small number of Brydes whales left in the Gulf listed as endangered. The hope is that listing would guarantee the protection and support needed to allow them to recover. You have a population of whales that without listing will perish, said Jasny.NAVY LAUNCHES DRONE BOATSSelf-guided unmanned patrol boats that can leave warships theyre protecting and swarm and attack potential threats on the water could join the Navys eet within a year, defense ocials say, adding the new technology could one day help stop attacks like the deadly 2000 bombing of the USS Cole o Yemen. The Arlington-based Oce of Naval Research demonstrated the autonomous swarm boat technology over two weeks in August on the James River near Fort Eustis in Virginia not far from one of the Navys largest eet concentration areas. It said the Navy simulated a transit through a strait, just like the routine passage of U.S. warships through the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf. In the demonstrations, as many as 13 small unmanned patrol boats were escorting a high-value Navy ship. Then as many as eight of the self-guided vessels broke o and swarmed around a threat when a ship playing the part of an enemy vessel was detected, the oce said, calling the demonstrations a success.EXOTIC SNAILS: GOOD OR BAD?A snail invasion that is helping feed endangered birds also threatens to sabotage costly Everglades restoration. Millions of South American apple snails overwhelmed a stormwater treatment area in Wellington and devoured pollution-ltering plants in the man-made marsh beside the northern reaches of the Everglades. The population explosion of snails stripped every blade of vegetation from 750 acres of a key portion of the stormwater treatment area, which is relied on to stop an overload of polluting phosphorus from owing into the Everglades, said Terrie Bates, the South Florida Water Management Districts director of water resources. The incident also raised concerns about the risk of the snails spreading to more of the 57,000 acres of lter marshes that are the states main tools for keeping polluting phosphorus out of the Everglades. Creating those treatment areas has cost taxpayers nearly $2 billion. The inux of exotic apple snails had been credited with helping provide more food for the Everglades snail kite, an endangered bird of prey. Snail kite populations have been on the rebound in recent years, thanks in part to the arrival of the bigger, heartier snails that have delivered a boost to the nicky birds food supply. But if the bigger snails end up being too much of a strain on vegetation vital to wildlife habitat, then the environmental trade-o may be too much for the Everglades.MMMM FISH POOPFish owners know cleaning the tank can be a pain. But a new sh tank solves that problem by making a tank that doubles as a garden, according to The Hungton Post. The catch? The sh waste acts as fertilizer for your vegetables. As The Hungton Post reports, the idea of aquaponics, or using aquatic animals to grow plants, isnt new. But Jack Ikard, the 21-year-old creator of the AquaSprouts Aquaponic Garden, is banking on the products design and ease of use will make it a hit. Its currently about $6,000 short of its $60,000 Kickstarter goal. Ikard realizes some people may not be fans eating kale or tomatoes grown from their shs waste. Thats just the way the world works, he said. If its not waste from your sh, its some other kind of poop.WE USED UP ALL THE GOOD JOKES A WHILE BACKWhat washes up on tiny beaches? Microwaves!

Page 12 October 9, 2014 WaterLine photo by Ralph AllenThis juvenile snook has a very large tail for its size. As it matures, it will grow into its tail like a Labrador puppy grows into its paws. Every sh you catch has a tail, but have you ever thought much about sh tails? Unless were studiously measuring a sh to see if it meets size requirements to go in the cooler, most of us dont pay much attention to the tails on the sh we handle. The tail on most sh has almost the same function as the propeller on a boat: It provides the push that allows the sh to travel and to maneuver. There are a few sh which dont have a tail (or much of a tail) and these are sh which have little need for propulsion. For example, ocean sunsh (or Mola mola, if you prefer) are huge creatures that can weigh thousands of pounds. Since their lives are mostly spent in the open ocean drifting with the currents as they munch on slow-moving prey such as jelly sh, small crustaceans and plankton, the big creatures get along ne without a tail. There are also some sh, such as rays, which really dont use their tails for propulsion at all. Rare exceptions aside, most sh do need tails to get around. Since the tail of each sh species needs to be sized and shaped to suit its particular lifestyle, there are many dierent types of sh tails. Most of us are familiar with the notion that some species of sh have forked tails and some species do not. In general, deeply forked tails allow for faster top-end swimming speeds. Non-forked or slightly forked tails allow for more maneu verability at slow speed, and more acceleration from a standstill. Most pelagic free-swimming ocean predators, such as mackerels and tunas, are equipped with deeply forked tails, while ambush predators, such as grouper, have tails that are not forked. Many of the very fastest sh have tails that are not only deeply forked, but are also lunate curved along the leading edges for hydrodynamic eciency and rigid so that they can beat side-to-side at a furious pace without collapsing. Next time you catch a Spanish mackerel or bonita, try to pinch together the lobes of the forked tail and youll discover that its almost impossible without breaking the n itself. There are all kinds of variations and in-be tweens on the forked/non-forked tail shapes. Snook have forked tails, but the tail on a snook is very wide and is not deeply forked. This allows snook to be ecient at pouncing on prey and also to swim fairly quickly. Redsh do more grubbing of food along the bottom than snook, so its not surprising that the tail on a redsh is not really forked at all (though the upper lobe on a redshs tail does extend a bit, giving the appearance of a shallow fork). Interestingly, the sizes of redsh tails vary tremendously among individuals of nearly the same overall length. If you watch the weigh-in at a redsh tournament, you get to see dozens of redsh being measured, and youll see that some of these sh will have tails that are nearly twice as large as others of similar size. Tournament anglers prefer to catch redsh with small tails, because a 27-inch small-tailed redsh will weigh more than a 27-incher on which much of the sh consists of lightweight tail n. Some sh use more than just their tails to maneuver. Tripletail spend much of their lives trying to look like a harmless clump of oating seaweed, a feat they accomplish by suspending themselves nearly motionless at the surface, often pressed up against objects such as crab trap buoys or oating debris. Not only do tripletail have a rounded tail, the lobes on their second dorsal n and anal ns extend way rearward, giving the sh their unusual name and additional maneuverability. Did you ever notice that sh tails are vertical while the tails on dolphins and whales are horizontal? Both provide ecient propulsion, so why the dierence? Many scientists believe its because the evolutionary history of sh is along the same lines as ancient marine worms and other slithery things which undulate from side to side, while marine mammals are more closely related to creatures that run erect on legs. An up-and-down tail motion on a dolphin is more similar to the forward striding motion of a land mammal. Lets go shing!Capt.

RALPH ALLEN Fish tails Page 13 October 9, 2014 Quick quiz: What do the following three things have in common? A oating coconut. A blade of turtle grass. The Great Barrier Reef. If you said theyre all structure, you get a gold star. If you hang around shermen for more than a few minutes, youre likely to hear the word structure. Its a technical term for anything in the water. Im oversimplifying, but thats pretty much the case. Structure is important to sh for two big reasons. First, they can use it to hide from things that want to eat them. Second, because smaller creatures use struc ture to hide, its a great place to nd a meal. Anglers usually focus on large-scale struc ture. Inshore, that would include docks, bridge pilings, mangroves, oyster bars, sandholes and articial reefs. Dropos the edges of boating channels, the troughs that run parallel to the beaches, limestone ledges out in the Gulf are another form of structure that sometimes get overlooked. Hungry predators will sit on the deeper side waiting for unwary prey to pass overhead. This is a good strategy that gets much better when theres current owing, sweeping little sh and shrimp over the drop. Oshore, most people immediately think of reefs and wrecks as structure. These mega structures do draw in sh, and lots of them. But they also draw in shermen, because theyre relatively easy to nd. If you want to have your own spots, it pays to get intimate with your bottom machine, because a lot of oshore bottom structure is very subtle. Areas of exposed limestone often have hundreds or thousands of small caves, just big enough for a grouper to call home. This type of structure is often called Swiss cheese bottom, and its incredibly productive to sh these places. Even something as simple as a patch of exposed at rock can be enough to hold a surprisingly large number of sh in the Gulfs sandy desert. But youll never locate Swiss cheese bottom, much less bare rock, if youre looking for a sunken U-boat. Structure doesnt have to be on the bottom. Crabtrap markers, oating grass or seaweed, and even changes in water color can be called structure, particularly when youre oshore in open water. Anglers with bluewater experi ence will tell you that something as apparently insignicant as a oating board is often a sh magnet. When theres no place to hide, baitsh will utilize anything. Actually, every time you go out on the water, you take structure with you. The moment you turn o your engine, your boat becomes struc ture. Sometimes sh will seek shelter under or next to your hull when predators are nearby. Cobia and barracuda are especially drawn to a boat thats anchored or drifting. The cudas will run circles around you, but the cobes will sit right below you. When that happens, just drop a chunk of cutbait over and hang on. Most sh like structure, but it helps to know the habits of the sh youre targeting since dierent species use structure in dierent ways. Some sh like to get right in the thick of structure: Red grouper and snook, for example. Others, such as ounder and redsh, prefer to sit on the edges. Generally speaking, actively feeding sh will face into the current and hang out on the upcurrent side of whatever structure theyre on. Then there are a few sh that will sit on the downcurrent side of structure, especially pilings or bridge abutments which create fairly large eddies. Theyre usually not feeding aggressively; instead, theyre taking advantage of the calmer water to rest. But if you oer a bait thats not moving fast say, a shrimp under a cork it wouldnt be a huge surprise for an opportunistic sh to grab it. Water ow is always a good thing to look for, and when you nd it working in conjunction with structure, the results can be outstanding. Mangrove shorelines hold a lot of sh, but where a creek mouth ows out through the trees the bite is often much better. The creek can be tiny, with just barely a ripple visible, but the eect can be huge. We could talk for hours about the specics of structure and how each species relates to it, but Im going to save that for another day. The point is to get you thinking about how sh see the world around them so you can start trying to see things through their eyes. Once you start doing that, youll be amazed at how much your shing will improve and you can bet thats not a bad thing.Robert Lugiewicz is the manager of Fishin Franks Bait & Tackle, located at 4425-D Tamiami Trail in Charlotte Harbor.

Page 14 October 9, 2014 A big shout out to Josh Olive, the esteemed publisher of WaterLine, for looking out for me. I dont always have time to write a column every week. Sometimes Im just too busy taking care of babies, patients and residents of Peace River Wildlife Center, not to mention sta, volunteers and board members (oh, no she dient). Its not like Im just sitting around playing Candy Crush. There are also times, and this will come as some surprise to anyone who knows me at all, when I simply run out of things to say. During just such a time recently, Josh reran one of my older articles. How sweet that he presumed I was busy being overrun by baby squirrels and not that I was trying to complete a jigsaw puzzle on my iPad. He picked that particular article, by his own admission, because he liked the picture of the cute little kitties that accompanied it. Careful there, Josh; youll blow your macho cover. Dont worry, your secret is safe with me. I would never reveal to anyone how much time you spend watching cat videos on YouTube. (Its OK, no one really reads this stu do they?) I know for a fact most people dont read everything in its entirety. I got a lot of grief after the article about the bobcat kittens reran from people wanting to see them, not believing that we had bobcats, or wondering why I would lie about something like that. Even though Josh had printed a disclaimer at the beginning of the column that it was a reprint. My faithful WaterLine readers (yes, both of you!) arent the only ones who look at the picture, skim the headline, and make up their own story to t their preconceived notion of whats not right with the world. PRWC has an active and very engaged following on Face book. While we love our followers, they need to carefully read a post before heatedly replying to it. Noting International Raccoon Appreciation Day Oct. 1, we posted a few fun facts about that rascally species. One of the things we mentioned was that seeing a raccoon during the day doesnt automatically mean its rabid. Healthy moms and juveniles can be seen during the day searching for food. To which the following reply was made: I really wish you would not have said ALL raccoon seen during daylight hours have rabies I know the word ALL was not used, but it was implied by the post. Really? Because thats not how I read it. To repeat just because a raccoon is out during the day does not mean it has rabies. Quite the contrary, most raccoons will forage during daylight hours, particularly a mother and youngsters and especially if there is a source of food in the area. Sources of food include food left out for cats or birds, unsecured trash receptacles and tourists. You all know to whom I am referring: The people who delight in feeding french fries to the seagulls, hot dogs to great blue herons, and marshmallows to raccoons and alligators. I think indigenous peoples just told visitors that animals had bad diseases so they would leave them alone. Like a mother telling a child the mother bird will smell if a human touched her baby. Other than vultures, very few birds have any sense of smell at all. Whoa, I kind of got o on a tangent there. My point was Wait. What was my point? I think it was a really good one, too. Maybe Ill remember by next week. In the meantime, dont believe everything you think you read.

Page 15 October 9, 2014 If you drive over the U.S. 41 bridge from Port Charlotte into Punta Gorda, chances are good youve looked to the left and noticed a little tiki bar nestled right on the Harbor. Well, we noticed it too, and nally we just had to check it out. TTs Tiki Bar is part of the Four Points by Sheraton Punta Gorda Harborside Hotel. There are two restaurants here that share a menu: The tiki bar and the Dockside Grill. The Dockside is indoors; the tiki bar is open to the wide world. It wasnt hard to choose one on this breezy, balmy evening. You can tie your boat up at the dock, but since the sign says sunrise to sunset, we chose to arrive by car so we could watch natures nightly western sky show and not worry about time. Other folks were getting ready for another show. TTs oers Thursday night football on their giant screen, and the sports fans seem to dig it. We sat on the other side of the patio, which we had more or less to ourselves. Seating is a bit dierent than you might expect. We were in lounge-style wooden chairs and provided with individual small tabletops that t across the armrests. It worked ne for us, but if youre planning an entire meal you might want to sit at the bar itself. The plan was to go with nger foods, but when I saw seafood gumbo on the menu, I knew Id have to sample it. I was not disappointed. Their hearty recipe is tomato-based and thick, crammed full of tender okra, corn, chopped onion, shredded chicken, sweet crawsh, chewy clams and massive chunks of Andouille sausage. It was spicy, but not nearly enough to melt your face. This gumbo is what they used to call food that sticks to your ribs much more satisfying and lling than most other soups, and Ill bet it would be a great way to stay warm as we look forward to our nights turning cooler. Since it was football night, wings were on special for 50 cents each. Well, thats all she needed to hear. She adores chicken wings. In fact, I could hardly get her to try anything else. We ordered them naked (fried, but not breaded). They were served with a traditional Bualo sauce which, like the gumbo, was pleasantly spicy but not ridiculously hot. If you prefer ridiculously hot, they can accommodate you. The Tiki tacos were a delight generous mahi llets, lettuce, tomato and sour cream on a couple of warmed our tortillas. The pico de gallo served on the side added some punch, with tart tomatillos and a peppery kick. They came with a bowl of black beans and rice. If youre the type to not eat veggies, dont miss these. They were tender and moist, just a bit spicy but there was an unexpected hint of cinnamon that made this dish unique and intriguing. We expected the recracker shrimp to be similarly spicy, but they were not. No worries they were actually quite a bit better than wed though they might be. There were seven big, succulent shrimp, breaded and fried crispy. OK, no surprise yet. But then they were drizzled with an island Bualo sauce that tasted like candied apricots to us. The sweetness provided a perfect counterpoint to all the spicy foods (for me, anyway I couldnt get the wings out of her hands long enough to get a shrimp in there). The black sesame seeds added a subtle nuttiness, but the cucumber dipping sauce was completely superuous. Apparently the game was just getting good, but we gured it was time to walk the bridge and burn o a few calories. Maybe next time, sports fans. TTs Tiki Bar is located at 33 Tamiami Trail in Punta Gorda. For more infor mation, call 941-637-6770 or check out Sunset at TTs Tiki DINING ON THE WATER Firecracker shrimp. Tiki tacos.

I rst got wind there was some thing amiss when I got a call at work from the U.S. Coast Guard in St. Petersburg. They were asking if I was involved with the rescue of a capsized vessel southwest of Sanibel. I referred them to my counterpart at Sea Tow Lee County. I then learned of a boat in distress that had capsized with seven persons onboard. There were ve adults and two children, ages 4 and 5 years old. The children and all adults were wearing lifejackets. As I understand it from various media reports, the boat had lost power in choppy seas and was drifting west. Without power, the boat operator could not maintain control and waves started to swamp the boat, ultimately capsizing it. The boats operator did not get a MAYDAY call out on the VHF Ch. 16 marine radio and their cellphones were wet. Even tually one of the passengers was able to get a cellular signal and called for help. The 911 operator was able to get GPS coordinates from the cellphone signal and directed rescue assets to the capsized vessel. On the NBC-2 news, a reporter spoke to one of the survivors who stated the children had their lifejackets on rst and everyone stayed with the capsized vessel until the marine police arrived and pulled everyone from the water. Im glad this incident had a happy ending. It could have been much worse. As a reminder to all of us who spend time on the water, all recreational vessels must carry at least one wearable, properly tted, U.S. Coast Guard-approved lifejacket for each passenger. All vessels 16 feet or greater must carry one type IV throwable life ring or cushion. Waterskiers must wear a lifejacket while being pulled on skis. Personal watercraft operators and their passengers must wear a lifejacket at all times when using the PWC. While in Florida waters, children under 6 years old must wear a properly tted lifejacket when on board a vessel 26 feet or less when underway. If it becomes necessary to borrow a lifejacket, there are several options. My Coast Guard auxil iary otilla in Englewood has loaner lifejackets available. For more information, visit, or contact me at the address below.

Page 18 October 9, 2014 Page 18 October 9, 2014 Photos providedWant to put a smile on a kids face? Spanish mackerel will do it.Saturday evening, as I prepared to enjoy a fresh snook dinner caught by Mason, we observed the rst ock of migrating white pelicans circling back into Charlotte Harbor. We watched a young bald eagle try to catch a sh. Friends are talking of kingsh and mackerel schools around the Tampa Bay area heading south. The front that blew through Saturday gave us our rst taste of fall weather Sunday morning. The cool change is happening now. Get out when you can, and make time to enjoy our fabulous Southwest Florida shing action before winter blows in and changes everything. I was recently allowed a unique opportu nity. I received an invitation to attend shery management classes presented by the Marine Resource Education Program of Southeastern Fisheries. Alexa Dayton, with the help of many shery sta members and volunteers, put together an awesome educational program. Its dicult to make time to get involved, but its also absolutely necessary if you want your voice and ideas heard. I had no idea what to expect. Quite frankly, because it was part of our National Marine Fisheries Service, I was skeptical. I have felt for some time that our government regulators are killing our shing industries. I was provided the opportunity to understand some of how and why our system functions as it does. Guess what they have rules they have to follow also. The Magnuson-Stevens Act and its revisions are the laws of our land and dictate procedure that must be followed for shery management. There are several proposals bouncing around our do very little Congress to modify MSA, but current legislators are more concerned with their re-election and continue going around and around in the usual D.C. blame the other guy circles. So MSA remains plagued by current language. Locally we are ruled by the Gulf of Mexico Regional Management Council, except with Highly Migratory Species which are managed jointly with the South Atlantic Council. I obviously cant cover all the complexities of our council management system here. If you want to learn more, all the info and much more is on their websites. All I have space for here is an introduction and my sincere desire to encourage all interested the need to educate themselves and get involved. The system has challenges.

Page 19 October 9, 2014 Page 19 October 9, 2014 issues we face today of course, money, politics and much more. Its all uphill, but nothing improves if we dont force it. It will not go away if we just ignore it. I do want to point out that there are many good aspects of this system that could work even better with tweaking. The councils are made up of stakeholders, with advisory panels and committees that work hard to improve our management messes. Too many special interests are ghting for power and control rather than a working compromise that allows all something they can live with. Dont trust any group to convey your best interest; all are self-serving. If you can put sh rst and nd common ground, please get involved, but get out of the way if you are selsh. One more thing about our gathering: We had every aspect of shing represented, and we managed to learn from each other. This was great to understand some things of each others issues. It was a great networking opportunity as well. I was busy from break fast til after dinner making the most of this rare opportunity to talk and listen with other shermen from all over the southeastern U.S., plus most of the major movers and leaders of our marine shery management processes. It was the chance of a lifetime to learn, share and understand more, so I dove in enthusiastically. Capt. Ralph Allen and Charlotte County Sea Grant agent Betty Staugler also attended, so we were well-represented locally. We all want to know what we can expect when we get out shing. Its crystal clear that our weather is cooling o but exactly how much and how soon isnt as obvious. If recent trends are any indication, expect cooler temperatures sooner than later. We have enjoyed warm winters the past couple years, but its my guess this may change now. Animals indicate changes already. Migratory sh will move in soon. They may move through quickly, depending on how fast north winds press them. Redsh are already bunched up and moving Gulfward. I havent heard of any giant sh schools in the Gulf yet, but its time. Trout have eluded me in Lemon Bay, but my guess is they just moved outside for higher salinity and will return when runo from recent rain subsides. Snook are around and appear OK; my thoughts here are that we have so much food sh are happy. As minnows move out, sh will have more incentive to grab our oerings. Every thing is good and improving until the big chill. Go sh soon! As I put this together, the stone crab traps are heading out. Season opens Oct. 15. The trap oats are a pain to troll around but attract tripletail and cobia. Plus we like to eat those heavenly claws, if we can aord the cost. Its time to tangle with the mackerel. The newest stock assessments are due to be presented in January and the outlook is bright here. Both Spanish and king mackerel appear to be undershed. Stocks have recovered but many anglers have forgotten these abundant, easy-to-catch, tasty sh! This is a bright spot that you need to consider when planning your shing trips. Mackerel are fun and have liberal bag limits what more could we ask for? Stop complaining about what we dont have and enjoy this opportunity.Capt. Van Hubbard is a highly respected outdoor writer and shing guide. He has been a professional USCG-licensed year-round guide since 1976, and has been shing the South west Florida coast since 1981.

Page 20 October 9, 2014 Page 20 October 9, 2014 Being a Florida outdoorsman, hunter and sherman, several things come to my mind when October rolls around. When those rst cold fronts start to roll on through the state and the Gulf temperature drops to around 74 degrees, the kingsh will appear, the gag grouper will move closer to shore so I can get my limit in sight of land, and stone crab season starts. I wont be dropping a couple thousand traps overboard, like I did for the 24 years I made my living stone crabbing and charter shing, but Ill probably put out a few recreational traps so I dont forget what they taste like. At todays prices I cant aord to buy too many of them. I set my rst commercial stone crab traps in 1976 and we got about $3 a pound back in those days a far cry from the prices we see now. The mullet are getting fat, and I have to make sure my old smoker is all set to go. Anyone who has not tasted a warm, freshfrom-the-smoker mullet or kingsh steak with lemon butter squeezed on it and a cold beer has not really lived. I grew up in St. Pete in the 1960s. Back in those days, when you drove through the alleys of the neighborhoods on a weekend, the smell of smoked sh was in the air. It seemed like almost everybody did a little bit of mullet or king mackerel smoking at this time of year. If you are in St. Pete and you get a chance, stop by Ted Peters Famous Smoked Fish on Pasadena Avenue, where you can still get a taste of the old days. The recipe I use for my smoked sh spread comes directly from that place, and I doubt there is one better. The recipe was published in an old Florida cookbook called The Under water Gourmet and I believe it may still be available. The only thing I do dierent in my recipe is I just dont like Miracle Whip, so I use a good grade of mayonnaise. Good smoked sh spread on some saltine crackers will make you feel that all is right with the world and thats a fact, Jack, as Uncle Sy would say. When a cold front passes and the wind is brisk out of the northwest, sit down at your picnic table with some of these gourmet treats and a cold beer or two and welcome fall to our area. The next thing to do is get that old shotgun out and dusted o bird season is here. We have doves, quail, snipe and, of course, ducks. Doves are probably the easiest and least expensive to do. You can hunt the management areas, or if youre lucky enough to know someone living in a rural area, just about any old eld or pasture will work ne. Just get a comfortable chair and a small cooler for some cold beverages and snacks and set yourself up along the edge of a eld, maybe under a pine tree or oak tree, and wait till they y by. Depending on the weather, they may y all Autumn means bird hunting AT THE RANGE BILLY CARL Photo providedBobwhite dont mess around once theyre airborne.

The sun and moon, even when they are out of sight, exert forces wild creatures can feel. These forces aect when sh and other animals feed. Weather and tide also play a role, but expect sh to be more active during the major and minor solunar times. day, but the best shooting usually occurs late afternoon until sunset. Babcock/Webb WMA is usually chock-full of doves. Youll nd some area clubs and folks have dove shoots here with picnics afterwards, so check around for info and ask at the local gun shops for some of these events. You dont need special equipment or vehicles or gun dogs to hunt doves, and its a good starting point for young shooters also. As always, check the rules out with FWC and youll be good to go. Doves are dark-meat birds and most hunters just keep the breast meat when cleaning them. Wash them out real good, season them well and wrap a piece of bacon around the meat. Then roast them in the oven or grill over slow coals. They arent too bad at all. Now my favorites are quail and snipe, but that gets a little more involved and you do need some special equipment. For quail, dogs are a must. Its not like walking wheat or alfalfa elds in Nebraska. Southwest Florida atwoods scrub and palmetto is some tough ground to cover, and you have to be Superman to walk it all day. What most hunters here do is use a buggy designed and hand-built for traversing this kind of terrain. They are tted with dog boxes so while the dogs arent on the ground hunting, they can rest and water in relative comfort. Many hunters scout before the season to nd a likely area. Like shing spots, these places are highly prized, because quail dont wander a lot. With a little practice you can talk to gentleman Bob White, and this is a good way to locate some decent areas to start your hunt. Just nd somebody who has done some hunting here and he may give you some tips on how to make the right noises to get Mr. Quail talking back to you. Usually several hunters ride the buggy. You put a couple of good pointers on the ground and follow very slowly through the palmetto scrub until a dog gets birdy, or possibly goes on point. The buggy is then shut down and maybe two or three hunters get down, form a line some distance apart and advance on the dog on point. There is nothing more beautiful than a well-trained German shorthair or pointer that is locked in position with maybe his back leg quivering a little bit on point. The ultimate rush is a covey of bobwhite quail exploding out of the palmettos in all directions this will denitely make a hunt ers heart skip a beat. They are fast and hard as heck to hit, and you only have a very few seconds to make a shot before theyre down and running as fast as they can to get away. I have seen many a shooter who hunted pheas ants and ducks up north with great success be put to shame by gentleman Bob White. I remember missing a shot while shooting over Bob Clims dog, Jake. Jake turned around and looked at me as if to say, Is this the rst time youve ever done this? Very humbling! After a morning of hunting, we usually nd a shady grove and cook up some lunch out of whatever everybody brought: Pieces of venison loin, sausage, beans or whatever. Its almost always tasty. Maybe a short nap under a tree and its o again for the afternoon hunt. Its a pretty good way to spend a Saturday or Sunday, and even if I dont get a good shot all day, just watching the dogs work the birds is a wonder to behold. Most avid quail hunters are very proud of their dogs and their abilities, and some dogs have quite a reputation for their skills. On the humorous side, an old redneck country boy that I often hunted with up at Rutland Ranch in Manatee County was quite a character. He said he named all his bird dogs after his ex-wives and girlfriends (of which he had many), and that way he never felt bad about giving them a good whipping if they misbehaved by busting the covey or chasing a rabbit. In reality, I dont remember ever seeing him hit a dog. He had some real top-quality animals. Another thing about bush hunting down here in Florida is snakes. Snake boots or leggings are a must. I dont like snakes, even a little bit, and the ones you are very likely to encounter while bird hunting are the bad kind. When you walk the palmetto scrub, it is inevitable that you will encounter rattlesnakes and so will the dogs. Most bird dog trainers will kill a rattler, take it and coil it up, and allow an untrained pup to approach it. Then they will turn the training shock collar up all the way and give him the jolt of his life. This usually cures a young puppy of putting his face anywhere near a rattlesnake. Even then, sometimes dogs get bit, and most of the time its the end of the trail for the dog. Last time I checked on the price of antivenin it was around $900, and by the time you get the dog out of the woods and into the vet its too late. Some survive, but many do not. Last year we were lucky when a small female pointer was struck in the face by a rattlesnake but the fangs apparently stuck through her lip and went out the other side, injecting the venom into the air. We found the fang holes, but she was lucky and survived to hunt another day. Well, shooters, Ive got quite a bit more to say on the subject but I dont think Josh is going to give me much more room this week, so Ill continue this with my next column. Well talk about things like snipe hunting and hunting pen-raised birds at some of the private hunt areas. Ill cover guided hunts, and some of the things that have been done to help the wild quail population. Hunting pen-raised birds and wild birds is a lot dierent. Remember before you go to check the hunting regulations for your particular area so you know the rules.

Page 24 October 9, 2014 Photo provided Rain, rain, go away TOURNAMENT BASSIN GREG BARTZ I have lived in Florida close to 30 years now, and I have never seen this much rain hit us in such a short period of time. The lakes are at the highest points I have ever seen. Its easy to launch the boat, but its harder to nd bass. You know I love bass shing. But with all the rain we have gotten lately, I have chosen to leave the cover on the boat and ride out the weekends much like a gardener would. I dont mind shing in the rain. If you asked me my preference, I would pick the rain any day over the wind. But the constant downpours we have endured lately have made me rethink my position. Taking the boat out in this mess is the hardest part to deal with. When you get back, everything is soaked. You are forced to put the cover on it, unless you are fortunate enough your wife will let you put the boat in the garage over her BMW. I am not that fortunate. So you sit and wait for a day for the sun to come out so you can get the cover o the boat and dry it out. That means getting the lids all opened up and wiping down every square inch of the interior to get rid of any grunge that may want to start forming due to the damp conditions. I can think of better ways to spend a day with some sunshine, but it has to be done. The rain brings so much extra work in putting the boat away, it makes you stop and reconsider even taking the cover o to go sh and risk getting caught in the downpour. This is exactly what I am trying to decide on for going out tomorrow morning. The forecast for tomorrow shows a 40 to 60 percent chance of rain, but mama wants to get out in the boat because she missed the last tournament and the last few times I have gone to the lake to practice. Now, I already know how this scenario is going to play out. She will tell me to plug the boat in tonight, and get everything ready to go tomorrow. If its not raining, well head to the lake to prac tice for the next tournament. Well be out there about 30 minutes and the rains will start up. I can tolerate it, but my better half will take about 15 minutes of that before the complaints will start to come from the back of the boat: How long will we sit out here in this? Is it supposed to rain long? There arent any sh here. By that point, I will have started packing up the rods because the rain will have sucked the life out of her, and I wont be able to take the verbal onslaught. Then, once we get home, I am left to deal with the boat while my shing partner gets to take a warm shower. I will have to throw the cover on the wet boat after I throw all the wet towels in the laundry, put up the electronics, clean out any garbage that was left in the boat during our hasty exit, wipe down as much of the interior as possible if its still raining, then unhook the truck and put it where it needs to be in the driveway. I dont know about you, but to me that doesnt sound like fun-lled trip to the lake. You all know exactly whats going to happen, though. If I can steal one hour of some quality time on the water, I am going to do it. It may mean some extra work in the long run, but if things go well, it could be worth it. Even though the chance of any real good success tomorrow is somewhat remote, I will take it and be happy just to sit out on the boat and have a rod in my hand. For those of you who have followed my columns over time, you know I have always pleaded with the government agencies to leave the water in our better lakes and not run them dry because some weather expert has said to be careful of the hurricanes this fall. Well, even they couldnt cause enough of a panic to get rid of the amount of water we have had to deal with this summer. As much as I wish it wouldnt rain on weekends, Im actually happy to see water levels return to heights I have not seen in years. This can only be a good thing for our lakes and freshwater systems. So tomorrow morning it is. May the shing and rain gods strike up a deal to give me three hours of quality shing before I get pelted with rain. I would be happy with that.Greg Bartz is a tournament bass sherman based in Lakeland.
