AND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000Three days after Wanda Greene was admitted to Bayfront Health Port Charlotte formerly Peace River Regional Medical Center the 73-year-old Port Charlotte resident was discharged. Without her dentures. Wandas husband Claude said he reported the missing dentures the second day to the oor nurse. He said he talked with a number of individuals who promised someone would get back to him, but no one did. I couldnt get any higher-ups to talk, Claude told me. I was getting madder than hell. With nothing from the hospital, Wanda had no choice but to pay for new dentures. Claude said that was a nancial burden, since the couple lives only on their Social Security. Claude thinks the hospital should take some responsibility. While prevented by federal HIPAA privacy laws from discussing Wandas specic information, Bayfront Healths Marti Van Veen told me its the hospitals policy to replace or reimburse patients for items such as glasses, dentures, and hearing aids that are documented and lost during their hospital stay. Claude gave me a signed copy of the hospitals patient belonging list, where Wandas upper and lower dentures were noted as being kept with patient. A few days after my initial contact, Claude told me someone from the hospital asked him to come in with the denture receipts, and settled the claim to his satisfaction. Its important to understand this loss did not involve valuables like jewelry or money. On the patient belongings list that Wanda signed, unless those valuables are safely kept by the hospital, its not liable for their loss or damage. The hospital does have a safe in which patients can store their items and retrieve them upon discharge, explained Bayfronts Van Veen. All items are logged, and placed in sealed bags, which are then locked in the safe by our security personnel. Better yet, leave all valuables at home. Obviously, you cant leave personal items like dentures, hearing aids, glasses or prosthetics at home, or lock them in a hospital safe. So make sure theyre properly inventoried during admission, get a copy of the list, and sign it along with a hospital representative. Also, if possible, put identifying information on them. For example, dentists can label dentures, or an engraving tool can put a name on glasses earpieces. However, if like Wanda, any of these items become missing, some of the higher-ups to contact are the hospitals risk management director, who deals with loss and liability, and the hospitals patient advocate, if it has one. Bayfront has both. But, understand, a patient advocate still works for the hospital. Thats why its also important to have your own health care advocate to help you during your hospital stay. This can be anyone, like a trusted close friend or family member. Remember, under the HIPAA privacy laws, so long as you dont object, the hospital or any health care provider is allowed to share or discuss your health information, including nancial, with anyone involved in your care. When choosing an advocate, look for someone whos an effective listener and tenacious without being adversarial.

Graham The late North Port Police Sgt. Scott Graham was honored Thursday afternoon with a memorial service packed with hundreds of friends, family and colleagues and a procession through both Sarasota and Charlotte counties. Graham, of Port Charlotte, died Friday from cancer at the age of 59. The 1 p.m. service at San Pedro Catholic Church in North Port was followed by a two-county procession to honor Grahams law enforcement career as both a detective at the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce and a sergeant for the NPPD. Graham served nearly four decades in law enforcement between Rhode Island and Florida. The parking lot of the church was packed full of cars of friends and family Thursday afternoon, including approximately 100 police vehicles from NPPD and the Charlotte County and Sarasota County sheriffs ofces. Loved ones gathered around Grahams wife, Alice, and family outside of the church offering their condolences before the procession By ALLISON SHIRK STAFF WRITERHONOR | 14PORT CHARLOTTE A local man has been arrested in connection with a crash that killed a bicyclist in the Parkside area of Port Charlotte in June. David McGovern, 24, is facing a charge of vehicular manslaughter after a lengthy investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol. The Port Charlotte man reportedly lost control of a Nissan Maxima he was driving and struck and killed Howard Tomlin, 39, who was riding his bike on a sidewalk along Elkcam Boulevard around 9:30 p.m. June 20. (This arrest) is something Ive been waiting for, said the victims mother, Ivy Meadows, of North Port. Its some kind of closure that (McGovern) is in jail. Authorities had been seeking the publics help in learning about McGoverns driving pattern before the crash. McGovern was served an arrest warrant by Charlotte County deputies Wednesday at a Murphy Court address in North Port. The FHP declined to release the homicide investigation report Thursday. McGovern was driving in the same direction as Tomlin, and McGovern spun out when he tried to pass, an initial crash report shows. Investigators say the Maxima slid into a ditch, rolled and continued onto the sidewalk where Man charged with vehicular homicideBy ADAM KREGER STAFF WRITERHOMICIDE | 14READER ADVOCATE David MORRISCOLUMNIST CORRECTION: McKinley Lewis is a spokesman for the Florida Department of Corrections.

One attendee said three NPPD ocers gave eulogies remembering Graham and his law enforcement career. Law enforcement ocers from the Sarasota County Sheris Oce line up outside San Pedro Catholic Church in North Port, serving as trac control before the two-county procession honoring Grahams career in both Sarasota and Charlotte counties. SARASOTA COUNTY Angel Luna drove two and half hours from Orlando after work on Wednesday to be rst in line for the grand opening of the new Mall at University Town Center in Sarasota. He stood in line for 10 hours just to have a shot at getting into the Apple store and the promise of an iPhone 6. After searching high and low for the phones in the Orlando area but coming up empty, he thought a trip to Sarasota County would be worth it. Ive been looking every where for the iPhone 6 plus, Luna said. I gured there was no way they couldnt have it at this mall. Luna was one of the thousands of shoppers who poured into the brand-new mall Thursday, many of whom were greeted with applause by mall staff as the $315 million upscale shopping center opened its doors at 9 a.m. Many of the 100 stores and restaurants, including J.Crew, Lilly Pulitzer, Michael Kors and The Cheesecake Factory, are new to the area, Open for businessBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITERCustomers line up outside new UTC MallOPEN | 14 COMING COMING COMING SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY Sundays editions of the Sun will feature a guide highlighting the top state and local races and issues in the upcoming elections.

Featured EventPAID ADVERTISEMENT MURDOCK The South Gulf Cove Non-Urban Street and Drainage MSBU Advisory Committee has been mulling over a $24 million repaving program for a year. Questions still are ying as to whether the more than 140 miles of South Gulf Cove roads need the work. Property owners could face a proposed $200 hike per lot added onto their assessments, possibly over the next 10 years. Vacant-lot owners now pay a $52.24 assessment per lot, while residential and other occupied property owners pay $49.60. But thats not how some see it. Seems like a massive plan was put together and was just thrown at the community, South Gulf Cove Homeowners Association president John Robinson told the advisory committee Thursday. Why do we need all our roads done in a such short period of time? The ve-member committee consensus with the exception of Chairman John Paine decided Thursday on a proposed two-phase repaving project beginning in 2016. Paine wanted to postpone the start of repaving program until 2020. Not all South Gulf Cove residents say their roads are in need of repaving now. The advisory committee scheduled a special community meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the South Gulf Cove Homeowners Association Pavilion, 14859 Ingraham Blvd. Chuck Koons, Public Works engineering projects manager, explained the roads last were paved in a ve-phase sewer project that began in 1995. Koons said the longer the wait for the repaving, the more it will cost, since roads deteriorate and the asphalt and other costs will rise. The advisory board, he said, looked at a three-phase project, but chose one with two phases instead. You need to start having a plan for (phase one), Koons said. I truly (think phase-one) roadways are getting to that drop-off point, where you will have to pay signicantly more money to go back and resurface those roadways. (They) will see more road base damage and more costs. If the repaving moves forward and is approved by Charlotte County commissioners, the rst phase will include roads west of Calumet Boulevard, east of St. Paul Drive, south of the Butterford Waterway, and north of the Santa Cruz Waterway. Your asphalt is getting to an age (that) it needs repaving, Koons said. He also pointed out how county staff responds to advisory boards and receives directions from the County Commission. Resident Jack Clark asked if the project and its nancial impact could be pushed out into the future to lessen the impact on property owners. However he saw the advantage to starting earlier, rather than later. Oil is cheap now, Clark said. The longer we wait, the roads will be more deteriorated, and the price will be higher. Instead of paying an $800 (increase) for four lots, I will have to pay $800 (per lot).Email: reilly@sun-herald.comSouth Gulf Cove paving heats upBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERSOUTH GULF COVE PAVING MEETThe South Gulf Cove Non-Urban Street and Drainage MSBU Advisory Committee scheduled a special community meeting to discuss with residents and other property owners the proposed paving of 140-plus miles of roads.

Her eye-catching clothes often lead others to ask that question. Her answer is always the same: I made it. But Danniella Edland is no ordinary seamstress. Shes a creative dress designer with the unique ability to turn a thrift shop nd into a one-of-a kind glamorous gown. This was just a plain dress I found at Goodwill. I cut it, redesigned it, added sleeves and gave it a more stylish hemline, she says of the fuchsia dress. The North Port womans closets are lled with high-fashion gowns and dresses she created from thrift shop adventures. Although she can sew anything from scratch, she likes the challenge of creating something new from what already exists. But her nished product will look nothing like the original. This was once a plain black dress, she says, holding a sultry-looking gown lined in silver with a cutout middle section. If I see something I like in a thrift store, it doesnt have to be in my size, says the petite designer. I took a size 22 sequined dress, added chiffon and created three new dresses from it. But it all requires a creative imagination to look at what is and see what could be. Hand-sewing custom garments also takes a lot of time. I put 25 hours of exacting handwork into making a one-of-a-kind creation, she says. They say from desperation comes inspiration, and Danniellas motivation is proof of that. When her husband died seven years ago, Danniele says she lost her identity as well as her zest for life. I sat here doing crossword puzzles until I realized I cant sit home watching Name that Tune. I needed to do something physical. One day when I was passing an Arthur Murray Dance Studio, I forced my self to go in. I was exposed to social ballroom dancing in modeling school but had never done competitive dancing, she says. She learned she had a keen aptitude for the competitive side of dancing. What she didnt have was the money it required. Buying a custom-made ballroom gown can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000. The cost to rent one for a weekend starts at $900. Thats when she realized she could use her innate creative ability to design and make her own. When others wanted her to design dresses for them, she began Danniellas One of a Kind Designs, where she creates dresses for dancing, New Years, or special occasions. If someone has a gown that no longer ts, she can transform the dress and give it new life. Danniella also has had extraordinary success as a ballroom dancer. Among her many rst-place wins was earning the Best Newcomer Award at a large international competition in Las Vegas. At 72, after winning the 60 to 80 age division she competed in the 40to 50-year-old division and took rst place there, too. A former caterer in California with well-known clients such as Danny DeVito, she also does event planning and fashion shows. Her last fashion show was at Lazy River in North Port, where she also teaches water aerobics. Her other skills include painting, photography, acting, singing and dancing. But even if its only serving one of her homemade cakes, Danniella does it with air, just as she does with every endeavor. It isnt just on the dance oor where she shines. She can be contacted at 941-539-2863 or oneofakinddesigns@ gmail.com. Pattie Mihalik is a regular columnist for the Sun.

The Sun /Friday, October 17, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. Southwest Florida residents can get out and take advantage of another nice weekend. Similar to last weekend, there should be mostly sunny skies, only it will be a little bit cooler, according to John McMichael, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. The forecast for Friday is sunny skies with highs in the mid-80s, lows in the 50s, and northwest winds of 5 to 10 miles per hour. The highs are the same for Saturday and Sunday, except overnight lows may be up into the 60s. No rain is expected until next week. We will have some really delightful weather for the upcoming weekend, McMichael said. Mostly clear skies, with overnight lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s, and light and variable winds. He added that the cold front cooled temperatures, but toward the latter part of the weekend, temperatures again will climb to near normal or slightly above normal.Another sunny weekend ahead, but coolerSTAFF REPORT | COMMUNITY | NEWS BRIEFSDepartment to update softwareAfter the close of business today, the Charlotte County Community Development Department will go live with changes to its inspection and longshoremans insurance processes.

HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOREmail letters to letters@sun-herald.comChairman Derek Dunn-Rankin Publisher David Dunn-Rankin Executive Editor Chris Porter Editorial page editor Brian Gleason Editorial writer Stephen Baumann Editor John Hackworth V IEWPOINTCounty should live with less Tax extension just a fleece job Seeking truth is the medias job Adjusting lights will fix problem Words of thanks to Officer Quegan Pondering lifes many questions Men should cleave to wives Dont let Yates manage our moneyEditor: I am against the 1 percent sales tax extension. If you look at other counties around us, they seem to be getting along ne with the 6 percent sales tax they receive. Roads are being repaired, grass is being cut, sidewalks are being built, buildings are being maintained, etc. So why does Charlotte County need an additional 17 percent more than our neighboring counties? Could it be because of mismanagement of county functions? Interest payments on the Murdock Village debacle? Incompetent leadership? It seems to me that the government will spend every bit of money it receives regardless of the priority and importance. We all have learned the lesson of living on less. Maybe the Charlotte County government needs to learn the lesson also. Vote no on the sales tax extension and make our county leaders think hard about their priorities and spending habits.Fred Neuman Punta GordaEditor: Bureaucratic budgets will silently expand if politicians are successful in duping voters into extending for six more years the special 1 percent sales tax. A big winner will be the sheriffs operating budget, recently increased by 3 percent to $57 million. Sheriffs three wish list projects total $19.4 million, representing an unbelievable 34 percent increase in the new budget. Project list includes: (1) Jail Medical Wing $9.1 million. A recent letter to the Sun exposed the absurdity of this project; (2) West County Annex replacement of existing facility $6.5 million. Upgrading and effective use of the current space is mandatory, thereby totally shielding taxpayers from this wasteful project; (3) District 1 Headquarters $3.8 million. Facility replaces Town Center storefront rental space. This new facility will increase annual overhead expense signicantly. None of these projects improve county crime prevention. Therefore, none are justiable. Additionally, add in benets accruing to law enforcement from the proposed wish list project for a $10 million digital communication system replacement of Charlottes analog system and the sheriffs freebie sales tax budget additions rise even further. Even the re department requests sales tax money to pay for a $143,000 ber communication upgrade, a project which should be funded by the Fire/ EMS budget. Bureaucrats view taxpayers as uninformed, uninterested money sources available for eecing to pay for projects they cannot squeeze into their annual budgets, where such projects truly belong. Stop this deceitful political/ bureaucratic eece job by voting no in November to extend the 1 percent sales tax.Ronald Gillis MurdockEditor: Where has all the common sense gone which once Editor: There is no problem at the intersection of Sandhill Boulevard and Kings Highway. All thats needed is green light adjustments not a million dollar rip-off of Charlotte County taxpayers. The green light for Kings Highway has to be shortened. It is way too long. The green light going left from Sandhill to Kings Highway has to be lengthened by 4 seconds and green lights going from Walmart to Deep Creek and from Deep Creek to Walmart have to be lengthened by about 3 seconds. The light making a left turn from Kings Highway to Walmart has to be lengthened by 3 seconds. By decreasing the unnecessary long green light for Kings Highway you will lessen the wait ing time for other lights making everything smooth. This will not happen because the people in charge lack brain power. If you try and say something you will get their favorite answer, We dont care how you did it up north we are going to do it our way down here. The so-called experts are calling this a bottleneck. Nothing could be further from the truth. No bottleneck. And the problem can be corrected if they follow my suggestions. They want to widen Sandhill, Kings Highway and of all streets Deep Creek Boulevard. These roads will not reach their capacity for decades. It is time to speak up and rid Editor: Sometime on the night of Sept. 18, at a local restaurant, a person stole my purse while I was dancing. I quickly called 911 and Ofcer Quegan arrived. He was later able to recover my purse at a convenience store in Punta Gorda Isles. Thank you so much, Ofcer Quegan. I have pressed charges and hope this man gets the full punishment the law allows. During all the activities, the ofcer and staff at Deans mentioned that purses had been stolen before at this establishment. Why? Why not have a purse valet or locker/key area place in order to protect peoples valuables? Thank you again, Ofcer Quegan. You pulled a rabbit out of a hat.Jessica Poe Punta GordaEditor: Why do bikers, trying to look different, end up looking the same? Why does Mary Worth take three days to say Hi!? What qualies Leonardo DiCaprio to be an international expert on global warming? How did Commissioner Linda Yates become so agreeable after a full term of obstruction? How do you relate a jammed gun to a jam sandwich? How come a well-known fact is one I have never heard of? Who are they in they say? Why do we believe that writing a letter on a national issue to a 30,000 circulation will inuence a population of 320 million?Ron Harsley North PortEditor: The true meaning of mar riage has always been a union between one man and one women for thousands of years and ordained by God. For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife and they shall become one esh, Genesis 2-24. How can judges change the meaning of marriage when it is ordained by God? And is this not protected under our Constitution (separation of church and state)?Nick Coliadis Punta GordaEditor: Lets not be too quick to condemn Tom Slaughter, a one-time North Port public ofcial. Tom is being investigated for mysteriously having an unaccounted $3,000 on his City of Arcadia credit card. This probably would not be an offense in North Port. After all Linda Yates let Cheryl Cook off the hook when Cook went on her city-paid jaunt around Key West and Sanibel Island on our tax dollar. Lets not forget when Commissioner Blucher made a suggestion and was refused by Mayor Yates to enforce accountability by staff. At that meeting Yates refused to timely workshop his suggestions to discuss travel expenses. Cook was not told to repay the city while Tom Slaughter has repaid. Some seem to have forgotten a lot of the problems Yates has created for North Port because they like to think of how she relates to perhaps the one pandering thing she personally did for them. But remember this election is not just about me or you its about a city with a growing potential. A city that after many years had nally arrived at a new beginning with the county. We seem to have forgotten we too are a large part of this county. Dismissing the ITN has cost us thousands and will continue to do so! This city should refuse to allow anyone to manage our coffers until they can manage their own. Give Yates the time to relate to her personal affairs allowing North Port to move on.Charline Cristofori North PortFan incident helps identify the candidatesOUR POSITION: Wednesdays governors debate was telling inasmuch as both participants Democrat challenger Charlie Crist and Gov. Rick Scott played their roles, as their opponent would paint them, perfectly.The fan. Could the 2014 Florida gubernatorial election be decided by a fan? Possibly, but Florida Gov. Rick Scotts reaction to Democrat Charlie Crists antics certainly played into the hands of the challenger. Crist, on the other hand, was playing his slick politician role to the hilt. When Scott refused to take the stage until the issue of a fan under Crists lectern was settled, the governor came off as the entitled, even arrogant, politician that Crists campaign has worked so hard to label him. It came off as a stubborn and somewhat childish tactic by Scott. Crist, who tends to sweat, hedged on guidelines drawn up before the debate that no electronic devices were allowed including fans, unless the temperature was unacceptable. The studio, we understand, was 67 degrees. Crists people installed the fan against the wishes of organizers and Crist himself reportedly threatened to not take the stage if the fan was removed. That incident, which caused the debate to start about seven minutes late, said a lot about this neck-and-neck campaign and who these two men are. In a somewhat bizarre opening to the second gubernatorial debate, neither candidate was on stage when moderators opened the televised event. Crist came out to cheers however, looking at the empty lectern to his left. The moderator told the audience that Scott had refused to participate because Crists fan did not meet the guidelines set for the debate. Some in the audience booed. Scott did come out and tried to make light of the situation by saying he was just wanting to make sure Crist showed up. After the debate, Scotts camp sent Sen. Marco Rubio out to talk to the press. Rubio said debate guidelines prohibited any electronics and the fan should have been banned. In between all the antics, the two candidates traded jabs and accusations that mirror their negative TV commercials. Scott charged that under Crist, Florida had lost 832,000 jobs. Crist shot back that he cannot be blamed for the global economic meltdown that impacted every states economy, adding that the recession couldnt be blamed on him any more than Scott can claim credit for the recovery as he has in campaign ads. Scott said he would let the courts decide on same-sex marriage in Florida, adding he did not believe in discrimination but that he also believes in traditional marriage. Crist said he also does not believe in discrimination, so much in fact that he believes gay people should be able to be married. Scott said he would not favor any changes in the stand-yourground law when asked about the Trayvon Martin shooting death. Crist said changes need to be made to the law. Crist would raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. Scott said doing so would cost Florida jobs. By the end of the debate, listeners likely had a good idea where the two candidates stand. The divisions between the two men are clearly drawn more so than many might decipher from the millions of dollars of negative ads that attempt to tear down the opponent rather than address issues. In perspective, Wednesdays debate gave a stark picture of who these two men are. It will be left to voters to decide which person they nd most palatable. ourselves of these incompetents. They are talking $25-$35 million for no good reason. Think about it.Buddy Legrand Punta Gordaresided in the brains of our media correspondents? The silence of the spoken and written words which should inspire our ofcials to ignite our country we once knew has dwindled like a uttering candle. This impotent news empire was not always complacent for it has taken away many years of looking the other way and reporting just political rhetoric channeled by politicians whose only ambition was self-motivated. At one time, we Americans tuned in to our TVs, radios and other ubiquitous electronic gadgets and received nonbiased, intelligent, truthful, and realistic news. These news broadcasts communicated purely organic information not infused with todays political correctness and altered sound bites whose sole purpose was to attract increased eyeball ratings. Todays technological advances and communications have reached star wars capability on steroids. Yet, what does it really matter to the majority of listeners if they receive the distorted truth in 10 seconds? It is not the speed of the data but the sincerity and truth we should hold in high esteem, lest we be lled with deception as we try to decipher our lifes challenges in shaping ours and our countrys future. What matters most is the truth and it will mend this country of ours. It is the only medicine that will cure the ills that are instilled in our democracys core. Let us all strive to mend and enjoy what God has bestowed upon all His children.Tony Wyan Punta Gorda

The Sun /Friday, October 17, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT VIEWPOINT It sounds like the beginning of a joke: Two libertarians and a corporate lobbyist walk into a social hall On Wednesday, though, this very scenar io happened in Ashland, Va. Three Republican politicians shared a stage, and one of them was not like the others. There was Rand Paul, ophthalmologist turned senator and 2016 presidential hopeful, a tea party darling who would like to strip big government right down to its skivvies. There, too, was David Brat, seminarian cum economics professor who gained national fame for defeating Eric Cantor in a primary by portraying the House majority leader as a Washington insider who was too liberal on immigration. And nally, there was Senate candidate Ed Gillespie, longtime political operative and founder of an epony mous lobbying rm that represented, among others, Enron. Hes more the embodiment of the Washington establishment than Cantor ever was. Heres the punch line: The three got along just ne. I see unity, proclaimed Paul. Of course he did. The trio went to painful lengths to cover over divisions. One thing I love about Dave is hes for term limits, and so am I, Paul said of Brat. At this, Gillespie pointed to himself. And Ed as well, Paul added, caught off-guard. If Gillespie supports term limits, hes been awfully silent about it. His spokesman didnt respond to questions about when he had taken such a position. The men papered over their differences because of one overriding and unifying goal: to inict as much damage as possible on President Obama and his agenda on Election Day. People ask me whats the worst thing Obamas done, and its a long list, Paul said. Impeach Obama! somebody in the audience shouted. Its the presidents absolute disregard for the Constitution, Paul went on. Its the usurpation of power. Treason! somebody else in the audience shouted. Brat smiled; the others ignored the accusation. Paul went on to accuse Obama of a form of tyranny, adding, This is everything we must rise up against. That antipathy toward the unpopular president more than any single issue is what is propelling Republicans to likely gains in November. A CBS News poll found that 31 percent of registered voters see the election as a way to raise objection to Obama, while only 18 percent see it as a way to afrm Obama. Thats nearly as bad as it was for George W. Bush in 2006 before major Democratic gains. Republicans are so condent of anti-Obama sentiments that they arent making an effort to present an alternative agenda, the way they did with 1994s Contract with America or 2010s Pledge to America. The Republican National Committee drafted only vaguely worded principles (Our Constitution should be preserved, valued and honored). Wednesdays event for Brat (who is likely to win) and Gillespie (who is not) required particular agility by the performers to promote togetherness. Brat won his primary by claiming Cantor supported amnesty; Gillespie had been a promoter of comprehensive immigration reform. Paul has made it his priority to open the Republican Party to minorities and youths, but of the few hundred people in the hall in Ashland, only two non-white faces were visible among the older crowd. Gillespie, in pinstriped suit-pants over his loafers, wore a frozen grin as Brat promised much less of the crony Wall Street connection up there in D.C. Gillespie, a political appointee in Bushs White House, seemed to distance himself from himself when he vowed to keep political appointees in Washington, D.C., out of health care decisions. So eager were candidates and attendees for unity that they even applauded Paul, dressed in blue jeans and cowboy boots, when he spoke out for shorter drug sentences. Their speeches included scattershot references to Obamacare, regulations, taxes, energy, school choice, veterans, the military, China, judges and Ebola. But promises to block the other sides agenda inspired the most enthusiasm. Based on the crowd reaction, Brats best case for Gillespie was that we need him to be a check on all of President Obamas destructive policies. Gillespies best case for himself, measured by the standing ovation, was that he could make Harry Reid the former Senate majority leader and stop the Democratic incumbent, Mark Warner, from voting for Obamas agenda. We just saw recently President Obama said basically that his policies are on the ballot this year every single one of them, he said. Saying no does not an agenda make, but for Republicans in 2014, it may be enough. Dana Milbank is a Washington Post columnist. Readers may reach him at danamilbank@washpost. com.The power of hating Obama Dana Milbank Its looking like a tough offyear election for Democrats, with their Senate majority at serious risk and their chances of gaining House seats down toward zero. Every party has a bad offyear sometimes; Republicans did in 2006. Sooner or later they recover. But in the crosstabs of polls and in party strategists moves I see evidence that one group Democrats have been counting on is moving away from them: Hispanics. Hispanics voted 71 percent for Barack Obama in 2012, 20 points above his national average of 51 per cent. According to Gallup, Hispanics latest Obama job approval has sunk to 44 percent, just 3 points above the national average. You probably havent heard much about this because Hispanics are scarce in all but one of the states with serious Senate races this year. The one exception is Colorado, where the 2012 exit poll said 14 percent of voters were Hispanic. Non-Hispanic whites there voted 54 to 44 percent for Mitt Romney. But Hispanics voted 75 to 23 percent for Barack Obama, providing all of his popular vote margin and more. In the last decade liberals have surged to victories in all top-ofthe-ticket races in a state that once seemed safely Republican. This year that chain may well be broken. Incumbent Sen. Mark Udall trails Republican Rep. Cory Gardner in the RealClearPolitics average of recent polls and is at 44 percent, well below 50. Incumbent Gov. John Hickenlooper leads former Rep. Bob Beauprez by only 0.4 percent. Looking at poll crosstabs where available, I nd that neither Democrat is close to Obamas 75 percent and both Republicans are running at or above Romneys level. One poll even has the Hispanic vote evenly split. Precision is impossible, because the Hispanic sample size is only 90 to 160, with a large statistical margin of error. But theres other evidence of Democratic weakness among Hispanics, notably the withdrawal of national Democratic funding of Andrew Romanoff, the well-known former state legislator challenging 6th district Republican incumbent Mike Coffman. The 6th districts population is 20 percent Hispanic and it voted 52 percent for Obama. Coffman switched to favoring comprehensive immigration legislation and his campaign and the state Republican party launched Hispanic outreach efforts. Romanoff could not carry the district without a big Hispanic margin; evidently internal polling says hes not getting it. The same may be true in Californias Central Valley, where House Democrats withdrew funding for challengers to Republicans Jeff Denham in the 10th district (40 percent Hispanic) and David Valadao in the 21st district (72 percent Hispanic). Environmental regulators cutoff of water to the Central Valley has hurt the areas economy and apparently Hispanic voters dont like that. Hispanic voters also may not like some of the liberal causes championed by Colorados Democrats. After they passed highly restrictive gun regulations, two state senators were recalled by voters, including Angela Giron who represented a previously Democratic district in 42 percent Hispanic Pueblo County. In the Senate race, Udall has concentrated heavily on Republicans war on women and opposes any limits on late-term abortions. The moderately liberal Denver Post, endorsing Gardner, said Udalls obnoxious one-issue campaign is an insult to those he seeks to convince. Evidently issues dear to the heart of afuent gentry liberals gun control, environmental restrictions, abortion absolutism are not all that appealing to many Hispanic voters. Another example: Abortion absolutist Wendy Davis lost 26 Hispanic counties to a nuisance candidate in Texass May Democratic primary. Some Hispanics own guns; others seek work in industries shut down by environmentalists. Conservatives are wrong in supposing Hispanics oppose abortions like 1950s Catholics. But few Hispanics regard allowing late-term abortions as a central issue. As for immigration, relatively few Hispanics tell pollsters thats a top issue. They bristle when Republicans make statements that seem contemptuous of immigrants. But theyve also noticed that Democrats didnt pass legislation legalizing illegals when they had the votes. Historically, the Democratic Party has been a collection of out-groups who, when gathered together, make up a majority of the nation. But each out-group has different interests and priorities. Holding them together is difcult. The Obama Democrats have treated Hispanics as a passive and reliable source of votes. They have not delivered on issues Hispanics care about and instead have advanced the pet causes of gentry lib erals. The evidence from Colorado, California and Texas suggests Hispanics may be noticing. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner.

Our Town Page 10 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, October 17, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS As long ago as the late 1980s, it was obvious to Sue Covington that in general terms, the lives of wives were changing. Moving from Lexington, Ky., to the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wis., with her children, she was working part time. It was an era when it was tough to get money if you were single, she recalled. Doing part-time work in a downtown building, she saw Merry Maids in action. Investigating the companys policies and operation, she decided it was a good investment and continues to feel the same way today. The company was founded in 1979 in Omaha, Neb., by Dallen Peterson. In 1988, Covington went to his home, learning more about the company systems and ethics, then purchased the second franchise for the southwest suburbs in Milwaukee. Within a few months, Peterson sold the company to ServiceMaster. Two years later, she had 10 employees, acquired the adjoining territory in Oak Creek, then the Franklin territory. Five years later, she purchased the Racine County territory, increasing her employees to 20. For 26 years, I have grown the business to 40 staff, and in 1991 my two daughters joined me, she said. My daughter, Cori Gour, bought her own Milwaukee city franchise. Eventually, we purchased a huge building for the home base in Greeneld. Deciding to ease up and take time off, she came to Cape Coral, and loved the area. Her son, Matt Gour, joined her. As snowbirds, they made property investments until making it their permanent home. In 2011, my franchisor invited me to buy all the territory from Estero to North Manatee County, she recalled. Instead of retiring, I invited my son and his wife, Amy, to join and we acquired the Merry Maid ofces in Cape Coral, Port Charlotte and Sarasota. A year later, I decided to open the Venice location. Maintaining and cleaning a home; scrubbing bathrooms, kitchens and oors; dusting and vacuuming are the services provided by Merry Maids, which customizes services to individual needs. Covington believes each age group requires different services and, now as a senior herself, she understands those needs. From a mom with babies to a working mother or senior, she feels her employees understand those requirements and it is making them so successful. Every woman wants to feel their home is clean. Without that, they feel it is out of control, she said. No matter what age group, it applies. We provide them with not just a service but understand their vulnerability and provide a team whose visit they will look to enjoy. Besides the 40 employ ees in Milwaukee, they employ another 42 in this region. Employees join in special projects. Last fall, they all assisted Mothers Helping Mothers. In the past, Covington and her family started Helping Hands, which became a nationwide Merry Maids project to prevent domestic violence. Each ofce collected cash and informed the public of this problem, which goes across all barriers. Venice, being the new ofce, is growing and we have eight employees, Covington said. Merry Maids is growing and we will open more ofces in Fort Myers and Bradenton. I see us having a little boutique ofce in downtown Sarasota. The territory starts at Bee Ridge Road in Sarasota, then goes south to Osprey, Nokomis and Venice. They share Englewood and North Port with their Port Charlotte ofce. We hire people we consider trustworthy, responsible and like cleaning, she said. All employees have background checks and drug tests. Many of our employ ees that started 23 years ago are still a part of our business, in particular the managers in Wisconsin. The Covington family created their own theme We make paradise sparkle believing it symbolizes the ethics of Merry Maids. Throughout the United States, Merry Maids Corporate operates 1,351 franchise and corporateowned territories. Merry Maids ofce is at 722 E. Venice Ave., and is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 941-882-3085 for more information.Merry Maids growing quickly in areaBy ROGER BUTTONSPECIAL TO THE SUN PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTONSue Covington (left), senior franchisor of Merry Maids and owner of her Bee Smart brightly painted, customized Smart car, stands with her daughter-in-law, Amy Gour, the company sales manager. | COMMUNITY | NEWS BRIEFEducational tourCharlotte County Utilities will offer an educational tour of a wastewater treatment facility from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Oct. 29 at the Rotonda Water Reclamation Facility, 3740 Kendall Road, Rotonda West.

The Sun /Friday, October 17, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 11 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS DEEP CREEK Speaking to a large crowd of 200 mostly exasperated residents attending the Deep Creek Section 23 Property Owners Association annual meeting, Robert Keller was explaining the reason for his wifes absence. Having come from East Germany during the Cold War, she was all-too-familiar with elections where the ballot contained the names of only ofcial candidates. Indeed, Wednesdays election of Section 23 board members raised the specter of a predetermined outcome. With three seats available and three candidates listed on the ballot, those destined for victory seemed certain. Moreover, these three candidates, including two incumbents, were selected by a nominating committee appointed by the current seven-member board. We all believed before we got here that the election was already decided, Keller said. With accusations of a xed election and a communist takeover echoing throughout the two hours of public comment, folks clearly were angry with the voting process and the results. I have never felt so powerless, resident Millicent Burke said. And, by all accounts, there were other election issues. By the time three alternate candidates were nominated from the oor, the ballots already had been collected. In fact, most of the ballots cast by the 3,300 property owners had been sent in prior to the annual meeting. I had high expectations this annual meeting would be a asco, Vikki Perrella, one of the failed write-in nominees, wrote in an email Thursday morning. To my surprise, this annual meeting exceeded my wildest expectations. Board president Harvey Goldstein, an incumbent re-elected to the board who served as meeting facilitator, acknowledged the election was awed. Unlike past years, when all qualied candidates were listed on the ballot, Goldstein said the board had to follow the letter of the bylaws this time around, at the insistence of residents. Therefore, just three names for three vacancies could be placed on the ballot, Goldstein said. We dont agree with the way its written, he said of the bylaws. As a result, members of the ad hoc Take Back Section 23 opposition group in the community have asked the board to hold another election. When the question was put to the crowd openly Wednesday night, a vast majority raised their hands. But again, the associations bylaws may not allow it. Despite the disappointing election results, John Bones of Take Back Section 23 was encour aged that the outrage voiced at the meeting would spur further action and involvement. If you believe in Pyrrhic victories, this was it, he said. I would hope our future efforts are not ignored. Vowing to work for positive change, Bones said the board must bend to the peoples will. And, in what might be the rst step forward, board president Goldstein agreed, offering to establish citizen committees to work through the problems. To have us split up and ghting each other doesnt serve anyone, Goldstein said.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comSection 23 election results: Nobody winsBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITER Voted ballots must be received by the supervisor of elections no later than 7 p.m. on Nov. 4 and may not be dropped off at a polling place.

Our Town Page 12 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, October 17, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA An 18-year-old man who sexually assaulted an intoxicated 12-year-old girl at an area park in April will be freed after reaching a plea deal Thursday. Trevor Weedman, who had been held in the Charlotte County Jail on a second-degree felony count of lewd or lascivious battery, pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of aggravated assault at the Charlotte County Justice Center before 20th Circuit Judge George Richards. Adjudication was withheld, and the defendant received a sentence of four years probation, avoiding prison. The case was resolved in the best interest of the victim and the state in this matter, said Assistant State Attorney Shannon Doolity, who heads the local branch of the State Attorneys Ofce. Weedman and another person Jacob Napier, 16 had been drinking Four Lokos with the girl on the night of April 26 at South County Regional Park in Punta Gorda, near a house where the boys were staying. The three stripped down to their underwear and went swimming in a pond. The girl got sick and threw up, so the boys took her to the mens restroom. The girl told authorities Weedman had sex with her in the bathroom rst, and then Napier came in and had sex with her. The next morning, the girls mother took her to a local hospital for injuries she sustained in the assaults. A report by Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce investigators shows the victim told Napier to stop; and she did not tell Weedman to stop. Napier and Weedman were arrested a couple of days later. Though Napier was facing the same lewd or lascivious battery charge, he was turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice because of his age. Per law, the State Attorneys Ofce is unable to release infor mation about juvenile cases. The Sun called a number listed for Napiers mother. A man, who identied himself as the mothers ex-husband, said Napiers case is still pending. He declined further comment. Doolity said that Weedmans plea deal calls for some special terms. For example, he is not to have contact with minors, and he must undergo a psychosexual evaluation. He could possibly be asked to complete a sex offender treatment program.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comTeen gets probation for assault on girlBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERCHARLOTTE SEEKS VOLUNTEERSThe Charlotte County Commission is seeking volunteers for the following appointments (unless otherwise noted, submit an application and a rsum to: Public Works Department, 7000 Florida St., Punta Gorda, FL 33950; call 941-575-3600; or email MSBU-TU@ CharlotteFL.com): Beaches and Shores Advisory Committee: one volunteer to serve as the member at large.

As the result of whiplash or some other injury, nerve endings transmit pain signals up the pathway from the upper nerves of the neck to the brain. Along the way, they intermingle with the nerve fibers of the trigeminal nerve, which is responsible for the perception of head pain. Consequently, the patient experiences the symptoms of headache. In an effort to stop this pain, the chiropractor may attempt to realign vertebrae in the neck, increase range of motion, and relax the surrounding muscles. Multiple treatments may be needed to address pain that has persisted for years. P.S.

The service was absolutely beautiful. The Rev. Pat Organ of San Pedros led the hour-long service. Three law enforcement ofcers gave eulogies remember ing Graham. Everyone was very respectful, Organ said. It is nice to see the turnout and support for the family. Graham was known for his work in the community as both a sergeant and a volunteer. He taught anti-drug and gang programs, mentored youth within the Police Explorers, managed the Do the Right Thing program and helped to form the Shop with a Cop program in 2009, which provides needy local children with monetary gift cards to spend on themselves and family members. Mary DeVore, the mother of Scott Guzman, whom Graham mentored, attended the service with her son. She said Graham awarded her son twice, who is now 20 years old, as part of the Do the Right Thing program. He was just an awesome guy, and it is so sad to see this happen, DeVore said. Jerry Wagner from the SCSO said he had been working on a radio project with Graham for the past three years. This was him right here, Wagner said pointing to the smiling picture of Graham on the program for the service. Its hard to think of him and not smile that big. It was an honor to work with the guy. NPPD Sgt. Scott King, who was working security detail for the service, said he worked with Graham for the past eight years. He said the Police Department is thankful for the support from the community and church. I think Father Pat was great and we (NPPD) are very appreciative of him and the church for letting us have the service here, King said. Grahams law enforcement career began in Lincoln, R.I., in 1978. He made detective in 1988 and was promoted to inspector in 1993. Graham retired and moved to Florida in 2002, but soon started working at the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce as a detective in its Major Crimes unit. He was hired by the NPPD in 2005 and promoted to sergeant in 2007. His many interests included aviation he had his pilots license bird-watching and photography. Thursdays procession traveled through North Port and past City Hall before taking Interstate 75 toward Charlotte County to the burial site at Restlawn Memorial Gardens in Port Charlotte. On Oct. 5, nearly 50 law enforcement vehicles from agencies including the NPPD, the CCSO and the Punta Gorda Police Department took part in an honor procession escorting an ambulance carrying Graham from the Punta Gorda Airport to Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte. Grahams wife Alice requested that anyone who wants to provide monetary assistance to the family do so in the form of a donation to the North Port Police Department Explorer program Post 94.

Grahams car sits outside San Pedro Catholic Church with owers on the hood before the funeral procession began which went through North Port, past City Hall and onto Interstate 75 toward Charlotte County, where he was to be laid to rest in Restlawn Memorial Gardens in Port Charlotte. The two-county procession honoring Graham started shortly after the service at about 2:30 p.m. Thursday. Above: Police patrol cars line up outside San Pedro Catholic Church in North Port at the memorial service for late NPPD Sgt. Scott Graham. NPPD Sgt. Scott King, who was working security for the service, said there was probably close to 100 patrol cars parked at the church.and 90 percent of the malls tenants are already occupied. A 1,100-footlong skylight lights the length of the buildings main concourse. In a modern twist, shoppers are able to navigate the 880,000-squarefoot, two-story shopping center by using an interactive, touch-screen directory that helps them plot a course to their favorite stores. Shoppers were also treated to live music throughout the mall, including jazz, steel drum and pop, and even those who were there to just check things out instead of shop were excited by what they saw. The rst day of a mall is always great, said Joseph Hochadel, who was originally from New Jersey but now lives in Tampa. I came out of curiosity, but the rst day is when you get all the best deals. By far the busiest and most popular store at the mall belonged to Apple, whose line featured hundreds of fans, snaking up onto the malls second oor. Apple employees led shoppers in cheers and chants, and Apple security personnel acted like bouncers as they ushered people into the proper place to stand. When the store nally opened, Apple fans exploded in applause, gave each other high-ves and hugs. Its a far cry from the days of Sarasota County Commissioner Charles Hines childhood in Venice, when shopping trips meant driving to downtown Sarasota to see what Sears had to offer. The new mall is indicative of the bright future the county has, according to Hines, who said the new mall is about the choices and options of a lifestyle that is only getting better for county citizens. This mall is a representation of the changes our community is going through, Hines added. Palmetto resident Marcus Brewer came to see what the new mall had to offer, and was especially eager to check out the new Macys and Saks Fifth Avenue stores, the latter of which offers valet parking to go along with the malls valet service. The closest mall to Palmetto is DeSoto Square in Bradenton, but Brewer said that mall has been facing an uncertain future after recently changing their management staff. Brewer ran into friends at the mall, and he was excited about the possibilities UTC offered to the entire region, not just Sarasota County. I feel like this is a big boon to our economy along the Suncoast, he said, adding, This is just what our area needs. U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Sarasota, one of a number of dignitaries who came out to christen the new mall, called it spectacular. I knew it was going to be fantastic, but its better than I ever imagined, he said.

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, October 17, 2014 NATIONAL NEWS WASHINGTON (AP) FBI Director James Comey warned in stark terms Thursday against the push by technology companies to encrypt smartphone data and operating systems, arguing that murder cases could be stalled, suspects could walk free and justice could be thwarted by a locked phone or an encrypted hard drive. Privacy advocates and technology experts called the concerns exaggerated and little more than recycled arguments the government has raised against encryption since the early 1990s. Likening encrypted data to a safe that cannot be cracked or a closet door that wont open, Comey said the move by tech companies to protect user communications in the name of privacy is certain to impede a wide range of criminal investigations. New legislation to allow law enforcement to intercept communications is needed at a time of advancing technology and new forms of communication, he said. We have the legal authority to intercept and access communications from information pursuant to court order, but we often lack the technical ability to do so, Comey said in a Brookings Institution speech. Comey cited particular cases in which he said access to cellphone data aided in a criminal investigation. But in a question-and-answer session after the speech, he said he could not cite particular instances in which someone was rescued from danger who wouldnt have been had law enforcement been blocked from that information. Logic tells me there are going to be cases like that, Comey said. The speech, which echoes concerns he and others in law enforcement have previously made, comes soon after announcements by Apple and Google that their new operating systems will be encrypted, or protected with coding by default. Law enforcement ofcials could still intercept conversations but might not be able to access call data, contacts, photos and email stored on the phone. While the companies actions are understandable, Comey said, the place they are leading us is one we shouldnt go to without careful thought and debate. Encryption isnt just a technical feature. Its a marketing pitch. But it will have very serious consequences for law enforcement and national security agencies at every level, Comey said. The governments concerns may also center in part on the use of Apples iMessage platform, which offers end-to-end encrypted text messages that supersede traditional SMS messages. That kind of encryption likely provides access to those messages on users iPhones, of which Apple has sold more than 240 million since 2013. He acknowledged a rise in public mistrust of government in the year since former National Security Agency systems analyst revealed NSA secret intelligence collection programs. But he said the public was wrong to believe that law enforcement can access any and all communications with the ip of a switch. It may be true in the movies or on TV. It is simply not the case in real life, he said. Comey also said the FBI was committed to a frontdoor approach, through court orders and under strict oversight, to inter cepting communications.

The Labor Department said Thursday that weekly applications for unemployment aid fell 23,000 to a seasonally adjusted 264,000, the lowest level since April 2000. Given that the U.S. population has grown considerably since then, the proportion of the U.S. workforce applying for benets is even smaller. Applications are a proxy for layoffs. Analysts cheered the unexpectedly strong data. Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, described the report as spectacular and astonishing.Pastor accused of affairs temporarily bannedMONTGOMERY, Ala.

Mike Halpert of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Thursday that the upcoming winter looks pretty average in general. He doesnt expect a lot of extreme conditions like last years cold outbreaks when Arctic air dipped south with the polar vortex. A repeat of last winter is not particularly likely, said Halpert, acting director of NOAAs Climate Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland. That doesnt mean there wont be cold air and snow, which is normal for much of the country during winter, Halpert said. It just wont persist as much as it did last year, when extreme weather seemed to be stuck in place, he said. NOAA didnt predict last winters extremes in last years winter forecast. The agency predicts wetter-than-normal conditions stretching from Southern California to Florida and up to northern New Hampshire, with dry patches in the Pacic Northwest and Great Lakes. Average precipitation is forecast elsewhere.Chrysler recalling nearly 907,000 cars, SUVsDETROIT (AP) Nearly 907,000 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep SUVs and cars are being recalled for alternators that can fail and heated power mirror wiring that can short and cause minor res. The recalls, posted Thursday by U.S. safety regulators, push the total number of recalls so far this year 544, totaling a record of more than 52 million vehicles. The largest of Thursdays recalls covers nearly 470,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees, Chrysler 300s, and Dodge Chargers, Challengers and Durangos from the 2011 through 2014 model years. The alternators can fail, causing the 3.6-liter V6 engines to stall unexpectedly. The problem also can cause the electrical system to fail, as well as knock out power-assisted steering, antilock brakes and electronic stability control. It can even cause re or smoke, according to documents Chrysler led with the U.S. National Highway Trafc Safety Administration.Deputy Attorney General James Cole to quitWASHINGTON (Tribune Washington Bureau) Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole announced Thursday that, like his boss, he will soon leave the Justice Department, according to an administration ofcial. The departure of Cole, who for four years has been the day-to-day boss of the department, adds to a growing leadership vacuum at the federal governments top law enforcement agency. Cole has been instrumental in pushing for a softer federal approach to enforcing marijuana laws and has directed an initiative to encourage thousands of prisoners serving time for non-violent drug offenses to apply for clemency. He has also been closely involved in Holders smart on crime initiative to reduce the prison population and the large proportion of African-Americans in federal prisons.Thinner iPads, sharper iMacs in Apples lineupCUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) Apple unveiled a thinner iPad Thursday with a faster processor and a better camera as it tries to drive excitement for tablets amid slowing demand. The company also released an update to its Mac operating system and introduced a high-resolution iMac model that might appeal to heavy watchers of television over the Internet. The new iPad Air 2, at a quarter of an inch thin, also adds many of the features previously available on iPhones. That includes the ability to take burst shots and slow-motion video, and unlock the device with a ngerprint ID sensor instead of a passcode. Meanwhile, Apple made its new Mac operating system, Yosemite, available as a free download starting Thursday. The new 27-inch iMac which Apple is dubbing the Retina 5K model went on sale Thursday as well. The company also said Apple Pay, its new system for using iPhones to make credit and debit card payments at retail stores, will launch on Monday. from acting as pastor on Thursday. Montgomery County Circuit Judge Charles Price issued a preliminary injunction, as sought by deacons and trustees of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church. Price ruled that the Rev. Juan McFarland, 47, must turn in his church keys and his church Mercedes vehicle and then stay away from the church he led for 24 years. Church members hugged and prayed after the ruling. Now weve got the church back, and the healing can begin, said Lois Caffey, a member for 21 years. The judge scheduled a hearing Dec. 1 to decide whether to issue a permanent injunction. 486868 Join Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast for a culinary extravaganza with leading local chefs and restaurants.

Page 4 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, October 17, 2014 HAMMOCK DUNES (AP) A dream beach house in Florida has turned into a nightmare for a Missouri couple. Six months after the custom house was built along the Atlantic Ocean near Palm Coast, Mark and Brenda Voss learned its on the wrong lot in the gated Ocean Hammock community. Mark Voss tells the Daytona Beach News Journal theyre in total disbelief. The couple own 18 other residential lots in the community. They bought the lot in question in 2012 and hired Keystone Homes to build a three-story, 5,000-square-foot vacation rental. But it was instead built on the lot next door, which is owned by a North Carolina couple. The Vosses hired a lawyer, and Keystone vice president Robbie Richmond says the company is trying to negotiate a settlement between the lot owners and other parties.ODD NEWS Dream beach house built on wrong lot ALMANACToday is Friday, Oct. 17, the 290th day of 2014. There are 75days left in the year. Today in historyOn Oct. 17, 1814, the London Beer Flood inundated the St. Giles district of the British capital as a vat at Meuxs Brewery on Tottenham Court Road ruptured, causing other vats to burst as well and sending more than 320,000 gallons of beer into the streets; up to nine people were reported killed. On this dateIn 1610, French King LouisXIII, age 9, was crowned at Reims, five months after the assassination of his father, Henry IV. In 1777, British forces under Gen. John Burgoyne surrendered to American troops in Saratoga, N.Y., in a turning point of the Revolutionary War. In 1807, Britain declared it would continue to reclaim British-born sailors from American ships and ports regardless of whether they held U.S. citizenship. In 1919, Radio Corp. of America was chartered. In 1931, mobster Al Capone was convicted of income tax evasion. (Sentenced to 11 years in prison, Capone was released in 1939.) In 1933, Albert Einstein arrived in the United States as a refugee from Nazi Germany. In 1941, the U.S. destroyer Kearny was damaged by a German torpedo off the coast of Iceland; 11 people died. In 1956, the all-star movie Around the World in 80 Days, produced by Michael Todd, had its world premiere in New York. In 1961, French police attacked Algerians protesting a curfew in Paris. (Reports of the resulting death toll vary widely, with some estimates of up to 200.) In 1979, Mother Teresa of India was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Spacecraft farther aeld, including the Hubble Space Telescope, already are keeping a sharp lookout, as are ground observatories and research balloons. Were getting ready for a spectacular set of obser vations, said Jim Green, head of NASAs planetary science division. Named for the Australian observatory used to detect it in January 2013, Siding Spring will approach Mars from beneath and zoom right in front Sunday afternoon, Eastern Time. On Earth, the best viewing, via binoculars or telescope, will be from the Southern Hemisphere South Africa and Australia will be in prime position. In the Northern Hemisphere, it will be difcult to see Siding Spring slide by Mars. The comet with a nucleus estimated to be at least a half-mile in diameter hails from the Oort Cloud on the extreme fringe of the solar system. It formed during the rst million or two years of the solar systems birth 4.6 billion years ago and, until now, ventured no closer to the sun than perhaps the orbits of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus or Neptune. It comes around every one or more million years. It will be the rst Oort Cloud comet to be studied up close in detail. For comparison, the yby distance of 87,000 miles is about one-third of the way from here to the moon. Siding Springs tail could extend from Earth all the way to our moon. Its gaseous coma, the fuzzy head surrounding the nucleus, might stretch halfway to the moon. No comet has come anywhere near this close to Earth in recorded history. By studying Siding Springs composition and structure, scientists hope to learn more about how the planets formed, according to Lisse. Scientists also are keen to spot any changes to the comet or Mars due to the close approach. NASAs newly arrived Maven spacecraft, for instance, will compare the upper atmosphere before and after it passes. Think about a comet that started its travel probably at the dawn of man and its just coming in close now, Lisse said. And the reason we can actually observe it is because we have built satellites and rovers. Weve now got outposts around Mars.COMETFROM PAGE 1 the up-to 4,000 already planned to be sent to West Africa, and for longer periods of time. Health authorities insist ed there is virtually no risk right now to Americans beyond medical workers involved in treating Ebola cases or people who recently traveled to West Africa. Yet people across the country were quick to take precautions. Individual schools in Akron, Ohio, suburban Cleveland and Belton, Texas, were closed for disinfecting because of fears that students or staff might have had tenuous exposure to a Texas nurse who ew across the Midwest the day before she was diagnosed with Ebola. Akrons school superintendent, David James, said the move would calm fears in the community. Called to Capitol Hill for special hearing, federal health ofcials emphasized the importance of stopping the virus in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea to protect Americans and the rest of the world from its spread. Youre right, it needs to be solved in Africa. But until it is, we should not be allowing these folks in, period, replied Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich. He called for a ban on the 100 to 150 people who y into the U.S. each week from the three nations at the heart of the outbreak. Peoples lives are at stake, and the response so far has been unacceptable, declared Upton, chair man of the Energy and Commerce Committee. A handful of congressional Democrats also have endorsed the travel ban thats mainly been pushed by Republicans. At the White House, spokesman Josh Earnest rejected such a ban. He said the U.S. was already taking the necessary steps to protect the public, because passengers are screened as they depart West Africa and most are checked for fever again when they arrive at a U.S. airport. Besides, he said, imposing a ban might lead travelers to go underground and to seek to evade this screening and to not be candid about their travel history in order to enter the country.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 1,400-horsepower engine, the tank will let scientists map Category 5 hurricanes in three dimensions for the rst time. It can really help us understand why this behavior is occurring, said Mark Powell, an atmospheric scientist with the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration who published a study on the exchange in the journal Nature in 2003. The $15 million tank, nanced by the foundation of late Texas oilman Alfred C. Glassell, an avid angler whose record catch for a black marlin still stands, is part of the universitys seawater complex. The tank is housed in a new $50 million LEEDcertied building that replaces a 1960s-era building, and ties together a divided campus where researchers routinely lugged buckets of sh and marine life across the Rickenbacker Causeway between labs and ofces. The new tank will also provide ways to better study climate change and the transfer of heat from air to water, interpret satellite data and improve predictions on how oil spills spread. In the 1950s when UM rst opened its marine science school, research occurred mostly at sea think the Belafonte in the movie The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Scientists launched missions aboard sailing labs that didnt always provide stable conditions. But technology has increasingly moved work onshore. To stay competitive, the school needed a makeover, said dean and climatologist Ronni Avissar. In the works for nearly 15 years, the building also holds labs where the university breeds the nations supply of California sea hares, a shell-less snail critical to brain research and conducts research on coral, key to protecting coasts from rising seas. Uniting all the disciplines that use seawater had the unintentional result of bringing research on increasingly critical topics like climate change and biomedical health under one roof. It was not like somebody came up with a fantastic idea that was going to revolutionize the world. It was much more pragmatic, Avissar said. The idea for the tank was triggered by something even more pragmatic: the lure of a grant. To win the $15 million, marine physicist Brian Haus said he knew the school had to pitch something big at least bigger than the 3-by-50-foot tank he was then using.TANKFROM PAGE 1 Miami. Like a rock stars concert rider, the fan is such a requirement that one GOP operative calls it Crists teddy bear. Perhaps seeing an opportunity to put Crist at a psychological disadvantage, Scotts handlers tried to ban the fan from the debate. Organizers sent both campaigns rules saying candidates may not bring electronic devices (including fans) on stage. Crist campaign adviser Dan Gelber signed the rules, but added a handwritten caveat: with understanding that the debate hosts will address any temperature issues with a fan if necessary. Just before the curtain opened, Crists handlers insisted on placing the fan behind his lectern near his feet, and Scotts handlers demanded that the moderators do something. But then they were on live TV, facing an empty stage. Crist soon appeared, and CBS4 anchor Eliott Rodriguez turned to the audience. The rules of the debate that I was shown by the Scott campaign say that there should be no fan, Rodriguez said. Somehow there is a fan there. And for that reason, ladies and gentlemen, I am being told that Gov. Scott will not join us for this debate. Boos erupted. Crist was asked to explain. Are we really going to debate about a fan or are we going to talk about education and the environment and the future of our state? I mean, really, Crist responded. That was apparently enough for Scott, who came out and joined the debate. Scotts campaign manager Melissa Sellers insisted later that the governor never refused to take the stage. But as the seven-minute delay gained national attention, the Florida GOP blew it up even more, posting a compilation of pictures showing Crist with his fan on the Buzzfeed Community website, promoted with the hashtag #CristHitsTheFan. Democrats countered with tweets accusing Scott of having a backstage #fantrum. And later Thursday, Democratic activists were showing up at Scott events holding portable fans. The post-debate spin included this pithy quote from Sellers: Charlie Crist can bring his fan, microwave, and toaster to debates none of that will cover up how sad his record as governor was compared to the success of Rick Scott. Inboxes lled with still more Fangate references, from the overt (I didnt want to argue about a fan on the podium, Crist wrote) to more subtle digs (The Record Charlie Crist Doesnt Want You To See Him Sweat Over, from Scotts camp). It was a balmy 81 degrees Thursday in Crists hometown of St. Petersburg, where the former Republican has long been on record against sweating. Crist even mentioned his portable pal on page 3 of his biography, as he described the Democratic National Convention speech he gave after switching parties. A small fan was whirring at my feet, he wrote. I always like a fan at the podium when I give a big speech. You have no idea how hot those TV lights can be. Sometimes Crist travels with one fan; occasionally two. As governor, Crist spent $320 on fans during a trade mission to Europe. Theyre almost always placed at his feet, blowing cool air over his body and face, although at times a dutiful aide has held one aloft. The fan is such a xture that it even has its own Twitter account, which has become a scathing and vulgar forum for Crist-haters. And the fan has threatened to become debate fodder before. When Crist showed up with one before debating Tom Gallagher in the 2006 Republican gubernatorial primary, Gallagher wouldnt go on until he got one, too. Its crazy, said Gallaghers campaign manager, Brett Doster. Charlie Crist is a narcissist and he has these little pet peeves that have to be just perfect when hes out on the campaign trail, Doster added. The fan is akin to his teddy bear when hes out speaking in public. Alex Sink, the Democrat who lost to Scott in 2010, recalls following Crist to a microphone and having his fan blow up her skirt several times. She was a good sport, even taping a parody video for the Florida Capitol Press Corps comedy night in which a fan blew her skirt over her head, a la Marilyn Monroe. I learned very early on to stay away from that G-D fan, she told the AP on Thursday. Fangate shows how small-minded her former opponent can be, she said: It reinforces that hes so petty and petulant. It just reminds us all of how un-normal he is as a person. But Sink also sees the humor in these unscripted moments. Its absolutely hilarious, she said. It will be on Saturday Night Live for sure.FANGATEFROM PAGE 1 TALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) The cardinal rule of debates in American politics is: Dont make a mistake. The details rarely matter. (President Gerald Ford was echoing American foreign policy when he said in 1976 that, there is no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe but the statement seemed bizarre to those watching the debate.) So in the grand scheme, whether Gov. Rick Scott really threatened to boycott Wednesdays debate with former Gov. Charlie Crist, or whether Crist really broke the rules by having an electric fan at his feet, might matter very little. Crist, the Democratic candidate, was the rst man on the stage, and was alone for a few minutes, giving the impression that it was Scott, the Republican incumbent, who delayed the debate. But neither campaign seemed willing to concede anything in the aftermath of one of the most bizarre incidents in Florida politics not an easy list to make. The dispute blew through social media, causing the hashtag #fangate to trend on Twitter, and dominated the post-debate spin room. The short version of the argument: The Crist campaign had heard that there were complaints about on-stage heat during an event at the same, remodeled venue the week before. Former state Sen. Dan Gelber, who signed the debate agreement for Crist, added a handwritten note: with understanding that the debate hosts will address any temperature issues with a fan if necessary. That was signicant, because the Scott campaign was quick to point out that the rules pretty clearly prohibited having a fan on stage. Candidates may not bring electronic devices (including fans), visual aids or notes to the debate, but will be provided with a pad and pen, reads a copy of the rules posted by the campaign. So, lets get one thing clear: Rick Scott never refused to take the stage and debate, Scott campaign manager Melissa Sellers said in a lengthy email late Wednesday. In fact, our campaign was not notied Charlie had even taken the stage because the last we heard, Crist was in an emergency meeting with debate organizers pleading for his precious fan. The two groups that organized the debate, the Florida Press Association and Leadership Florida, seemed to largely agree with Scott. About an hour before the debate, according to a statement issued later by the organizers, the temperature on the stage checked in at 67 degrees. [FPA President Dean] Ridings then informed the Crist campaign that there was no temperature issue, and no fan would be needed, or permitted, the groups said Thursday. The Crist campaign put a fan on the stage anyway, only to be told that it wouldnt be allowed. In the ensuing back-and-forth, debate organizers now say Scott never refused to take the stage; he was waiting for the fan situation to be cleared up. Leadership Florida and the Florida Press Association did not anticipate or plan for the possibility that a candidate would not honor the debate rules, the statement said. In retrospect, the debate partners should have been better prepared for this possibility. In addition, we regret that one candidate was allowed to take the stage and allowed to talk before the fan issue was resolved. The statement drew a sharp response on Twitter from Kevin Cate, an adviser to Scott. Debate organizers spinning, when facts are on TV and in writing, is both pathetic and transparent, Cate said in a post on the social media site. Scott reiterated Thursday that he was waiting to see if Crist was going on stage. Crist Communications Director Brendan Gilllan mocked that in an email to reporters. Who are you going to believe? Rick Scott, or your lying eyes? Gilllan wrote. He added later: Charlie was on stage. Everyone saw it because it was on TV.Both sides state their case in Fangate aaaaaQ........................................................................................................................................................................................................

Well, mostly. The stock market took an early plunge but recovered nearly all of the ground it lost as the day went on. By the closing bell most indexes were showing modest gains. Despite the relatively calm day, many market pros say investors havent seen the last of the markets big moves. Traders are still fretting that global growth will slow and that Europe could slip into another recession, hurting corporate prots. Then there are the many geopolitical uncertainties, from conicts in Syria and Iraq and uncertainty over the impact of the outbreak of the Ebola virus. The sailing has been much too smooth, so going forward, at the very least, (were) back to normal turbulence, said Erik Davidson, deputy chief investment ofcer of Wells Fargo Private Bank. Investors drew some encouragement from new data on the labor market and the latest batch of corporate earnings. Energy stocks surged as oil prices bounced back. We had some positive economic data that reminded everybody that the economy is doing quite well, said Randy Frederick, a managing director of trading and derivatives with the Schwab Center for Financial Research. Another sign of easing anxiety: The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose after plunging a day earlier. On Thursday the Dow closed down 24.50 points, or 0.2 percent, to 16,177.24. The Standard & Poors 500 index added 0.27 points, or 0.01 percent, to 1,862.76. The Nasdaq composite gained 2.07 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,217.39.Stocks end mostly higherNEW YORK (AP) A sudden plunge in the price of oil is sending economic and political shock waves around the world. Oil exporting countries are bracing for potentially crippling budget shortfalls and importing nations are beneting from the lowest prices in four years. The global price of oil closed at $84.47 per barrel Thursday, down about $31, or 27 percent, from its high point for the year. Oil consumption globally is 91 million barrels per day. That means the worlds oil producing countries and companies are bringing in as much as $2.8 billion less in revenue every day and consumers, shippers and airlines are saving a comparable amount on gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. The problem is that countries get accustomed to a certain level of income, and then spend, says Edward Chow, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. It seems like a windfall at rst but when it lasts long enough you get used to it. The global price of oil was relatively stable for nearly four years, averaging $110 per barrel. Increased production in the U.S., Canada, Iraq and elsewhere made up for declining supplies in nations such as Iran and Libya and helped meet rising global demand. That delicate balance has been upended by a weaker global economy. Demand is slowing while production, particularly in the U.S., continues to surge. In general the plunge in prices is good for those who have to buy fuel, and bad for those who sell it.

The Sun /Friday, October 17, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 7 WORLD NEWS HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) People on the tiny British territory of Bermuda rushed Thursday to batten down for Hurricane Gonzalo, which was roaring toward them as a major Category 4 storm just days after a tropical storm damaged homes and knocked down trees and power lines. Gonzalo had top sustained winds of 145 mph and was centered about 415 miles south-southwest of Bermuda by late after noon. It was moving north at 9 mph, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami. Tropical storm conditions should begin by Friday morning, and forecasters said Gonzalos center would pass near Bermuda on Friday afternoon and evening, unleashing what they said would be damaging winds and life-threatening storm surge. The Bermuda Weather Service said Gonzalo would likely pass within 29 miles of the island Friday night as a Category 3 storm, close enough to be considered a direct hit. This is a very serious event, Dave Fox, a public affairs ofcer for the Bermuda government, said in a phone interview. The last major hurricane to strike Bermuda was Fabian in 2003, a Category 3 storm that killed four people. The last major hurricane to cross land in the Atlantic Basin was Hurricane Sandy in 2012, a Category 3 storm that hit Cuba. Fox said the government opened a high school as a shelter, but that he expected most people to stay home. We build for hurricanes, he said. Its part of the building code. Bermuda, which is 850 miles east of the U.S. state of South Carolina, has one of the highest per-capita incomes in the world. Kimberley Zuill, Bermuda Weather Service director, said at a press conference that the storm will affect the island for 27 hours. The path is similar to Fabian, the duration is similar to Fabian, she said. If your property was exposed and received damage during Fabian, you will want to prepare for that again. The capital of Hamilton appeared almost deserted by noon as stores boarded up windows. The businesses that remained open reported a steady stream of customers grabbing last minute essentials. Some people seem to have left it until the end to get things, said Melissa Trott, 25, an employee at Phoenix Store. We sold out of batteries, and our warehouse has none left. Gas stations also reported brisk business. I was here for Hurricane Fabian in 2003, so Im not taking any chances this time, said Susan Black, 65, a retiree who was lling up her car and several gas cans. Ive been busy since 6:30 this morning getting things ready. Many were also moving boats to safer areas. While some can bring them out of the water, others relied on storm moorings and hoped for the best. Forecasters said destructive waves could cause signicant ooding on the island, which is about one-third the size of Washington, D.C. Some 3 to 6 inches of rain was predicted. The Bermuda Weather Service said seas would reach 35 feet on Friday. The Turks and Caicos Islands government announced Thursday that it would send a 436-foot frigate of the United Kingdoms Royal Navy to help with poststorm recovery efforts if needed.Bermuda braces for Category 4 Hurricane Gonzalo MURSITPINAR, Turkey (AP) In its battle for the Syrian town of Kobani, the Islamic State group enjoys a key advantage: a supply of weapons, ammunition and ghters shuttling between Syria and Iraq. The towns Syrian Kurdish defenders, while backed by airstrikes from the U.S.-led coalition, are outnumbered, poorly armed and squeezed against the unwelcoming Turkish border. Reecting growing desperation despite their success so far in holding out, Syrian Kurdish ofcials are increasing their appeals to better arm the defenders of the strategic frontier town. From the start, we said the coalitions air strikes will not be able to save Kobani or to defeat Daesh in the area, said Idriss Nassan, deputy head of Kobanis foreign relations committee, using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group. We call upon the international community to open a humanitarian safe passage to allow in food, medicine, and weapons supplies, Nassan told The Associated Press. Its unclear what friendly countries could do. Weapons for Kurdish ghters would have to cross through Turkey a request the Ankara government is likely to rebuff. The Islamic State group launched its Kobani offensive in mid-September, capturing dozens of nearby Kurdish villages and a third of the town in lightning advances that sent waves of civilians eeing over the border into Turkey. Bolstered by the intensied air campaign targeting the Islamic State group, Kurdish militiamen were able to regain some of the positions they lost in recent days. The U.S. Central Command said Thursday it most recently launched 14 airstrikes on Islamic State group targets near Kobani, hitting 19 buildings and two command posts, as well as ghting and sniper positions, and a heavy machine gun. Indications are that airstrikes have continued to slow ISIL advances, but that the security situation on the ground in Kobani remains tenuous, the military said, using another acronym for the group. But the Kurds fear their luck will run out without heavier weapons and more ghters to back their cause. About 3,000 to 4,000 Kurds are ghting to block the Sunni militant group from seizing Kobani, according to estimates from different Kurdish ghters. They have urged Turkey to open the border to allow members of the Kurdish militia in northwestern Syria known as the Peoples Protection Units, or YPG to travel through Turkish territory to reinforce Kobani. But Turkey is wary of the Syrian Kurds and their YPG militia, which it believes is afliated with the Kurdish PKK movement in southeast Turkey that has waged a long and bloody insurgency.Syrian Kurdish official calls for arms AP PHOTOTurkish forces soldiers on their armored vehicle patrol on the outskirts of Suruc, at the Turkey-Syria border, overlooking Kobani, Syria, during ghting between Syrian Kurds and the militants of Islamic State group. | WORLD NEWS BRIEFSNepal blizzard, avalanche death toll rises to 27KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) Search teams rescued dozens of stranded foreign trekkers and recovered 10 more bodies Thursday in the wake of a series of blizzards and avalanches that battered the Himalayas in central Nepal, leaving at least 27 people dead. About 70 people were still missing along or near the popular Annapurna trail, said Ganga Sagar Pant of the Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal, and the death toll there was expected to rise. The route, 160 kilometers (100 miles) northwest of the capital, Katmandu, was lled with foreign hikers during the peak October trekking season, when the air is generally clear and cool. There were also many Nepalese on the trails because of local festivals. Government administrator Yama Bahadur Chokhyal said rescuers recovered 10 more bodies from the Thorong La pass area, where they had been caught in a sudden blizzard Tuesday.Hong Kong leader offers talks as anger mountsHONG KONG (AP) Hong Kongs leader tried to soothe tensions with student-led democracy protesters Thursday by reviving an offer of talks, though public anger over a video of police kicking a handcuffed activist complicates efforts to end an increasingly bitter political standoff. Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying said the government is ready to meet with student leaders as soon as next week, but urged them to be pragmatic, reiterating that Beijing will not change its mind on election restrictions. That raised doubts that the proposed meeting can overcome the vast differences between the two sides. Alex Chow of the Hong Kong Federation of Students welcomed Leungs offer but criticized the government for setting preconditions. Many other demonstrators gathered in the main protest zone echoed his view.Palestinian boy shot dead by Israeli troopsRAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) Palestinian police say a 13-year-old Palestinian boy has been shot dead by Israeli soldiers during a clash in the West Bank. They say the soldiers opened re after demonstrators threw stones and at least one Molotov cocktail at three Israeli army jeeps that entered the village of Beit Lykia near Ramallah. Director Ahmed Betawai of the Ramallah Hospital said the boy was shot three times in the chest and died of his wounds about two hours after the incident. There was no immediate comment from the Israeli military. Tensions between Israelis and Palestinians have spiked in recent days amid Palestinian charges that Israel is unfairly limiting access to Palestinian worshippers at a sensitive Jerusalem holy site. 50474937 Where Shopping Makes Cents charlottecountychamber.org Serving Arcadia Englewood North Port Port Charlotte Punta Gorda Venice1-866-463-1638 Placing your classi ed ad in Floridas Largest Classi ed Section is as easy as 1-2-3!Visit our new & improved website at sun-classi eds.com and schedule up to 5 free 3-line classi ed ads each week.

Rick Scott and Republican-turnedDemocrat former Gov. Charlie Crist. We have two children for Florida governor right now and Im the only adult in the race, he said in an interview Thursday with Associated Press reporters. The remarks came the day after Crist and Scott fought over Crists use of a fan during a live televised debate, delaying the start of the debate for several minutes as Crist stood on the stage alone. I hope the other two candidates keep doing exactly what theyre doing because it is ensuring that people are going to look for other viable options, said Wyllie. Wyllie is still a long-shot candidate. He has raised only $110,000 in a race where Crist and Scott have already spent tens of millions of dollars. But polls suggest he could get 10 percent of the vote, enough to be a spoiler in a race where negative campaigning has turned off many voters. Wyllie, 44, of Palm Harbor, owns a small information technology consulting rm and is clearly different from Crist and Scott. The state budget has grown by $11 billion under Scott and now stands at $77 billion. Wyllie wants to cut it by 30 percent. When you say that right off the bat, theres a kneejerk reaction: Thirty percent! Thats draconian! Thats outrageous! Wyllie said. But he said the budget is bloated by big contracts that lawmakers and the governor steer toward friends and political supporters. He also said some functions of government should be reduced. His proposal would cut state spending by $23 billion. To achieve that, he said, all property taxes should be eliminated and 2 percent of the 6 percent sales tax Florida now collects should be given to the counties to replace the property tax revenue they rely on. Its going to stimulate the housing market here in Florida, Wyllie said. That tax cut for the aver age Floridian is going to be about $150. When you eliminate that, the cost of their monthly mortgage goes down. Weve just reduced a barrier to home ownership. Weve made homeownership more affordable, which in turn drives up demand. And unlike Scott and Crist, Wyllie supports legalizing the recreational use of marijuana. I personally dont believe that government has the authority to tell peaceful adults what they can or cant put into their own bodies, Wyllie said. He said current marijuana laws criminalize people for possessing a plant, swelling a costly prison population and breaking up families. Wyllie also supports keeping abortion legal up to the point where a fetus can survive outside the woman. He said he would sign legislation repealing a law enacted by Scott that requires women to have an ultrasound before getting an abortion. He also said Floridas stand your ground law that allows people to use deadly force if they feel their lives are threatened was never needed and it was only passed by lawmakers looking to make political points. Asked how he would get his ideas passed with no like-minded Libertarians in the Legislature, he said he would use the bully pulpit of the governors ofce to force public demand for the issues. If Im elected governor Im going to be the most hated man in Tallahassee by the power brokers, he said.Wyllie says hes only adult in governors race AP PHOTOLibertarian candidate for Florida Governor Adrian Wyllie responds to a question during an interview with the Associated Press Florida sta, Thursday, in Miami. TALLAHASSEE (AP) In a sweeping ruling, Floridas highest court said Thursday that police in the state have no right to use a cellphone to track someones movements without a warrant. The state Supreme Court in a 5-2 decision ruled that Broward County Sheriffs Ofce had no right to stop and arrest Shawn Tracey for possession of more than 400 grams of cocaine. Detectives had gotten a tip that Tracey was involved in moving cocaine from Broward over to Cape Coral on the states West Coast where he lived. But the warrant they had obtained only allowed them to monitor the phone calls in and out on Traceys cellphone. Authorities, however, also kept track of Traceys movement by getting real time updates of his location from his phone. They stopped him shortly after he left a house and discovered a brick of cocaine and $23,000 in cash in the car he was driving. Traceys lawyers argued that the evidence in the case should be suppressed because of the way police tracked Tracey. But their motions were denied and Tracey remains in prison. And a majority of justices agreed, saying that in a day when cellphones have become a routine way of life, Floridians should expect a certain level of privacy in how they use them. The ruling also stated it was unreasonable to require people to turn off their phones just to make sure their movements are not being tracked. Requiring a cellphone user to turn off the cellphone just to assure privacy from governmental intrusion that can reveal a detailed and intimate picture of the users life places an unreasonable burden on the user to forego necessary use of his cellphone, a device now considered essential, wrote Chief Justice Jorge Labarga. The American Civil Liberties Union and defense attorneys involved in similar cases applauded the ruling saying there is evidence that police across the state are using technology to track people. This is a big victory for privacy in Florida, said ACLU of Florida staff attor ney Benjamin Stevenson. ORLANDO (AP) U.S. Rep. Alan Graysons messy divorce is getting messier, at least when it comes to his house. Court papers led by his estranged wife, Lolita, claim that the Democratic congressman failed to pay for repairs for the 5,300-square-foot Orlando house where she is living with their four children. The roof is leaking, broken windows are allowing rain to get inside and the house has a signicant mold problem because of the moisture, Lolita Grayson said in the papers led at the Orange County Courthouse. She also said the congressman cut off her credit cards, even though he has been the sole nancial provider during their 24 years of marriage. The wife has been a stay-at-home wife and mother and is nancially dependent on her husband, the ling said. The wife has no nancial resources to contribute to the repairs and maintenance of the marital residence. Lolita Graysons attorney, Mercedes Wechsler, said in an interview Thursday that the homes condition was horrible. Alan Graysons attor ney, Mark NeJame, said the congressman from Orlando was providing for his family, spending more than $10,000 a month on the homes mortgage, child support, utilities and household expenses. Besides the four younger children living at home, the couple has an adult child in school and he is paying the tuition, NeJame said. If she is a poor housekeeper, thats her issue, not his, NeJame said. The accusation on home repairs is only the latest salvo between the millionaire congressman and his estranged wife in contentious divorce proceedings that started at the beginning of the year. In March, Lolita Grayson was granted a restraining order against the con gressman after she alleged that Alan Grayson pushed her against the front door of their home when he stopped by the house. In April, Alan Grayson accused his wife of bigamy, claiming she was never divorced from her rst husband when they married in 1990.Florida high court puts limits on phone tracking Congressmans messy divorce gets messier *fA14:\ea .. f ....... ... .. .. eye -e. ..,a ^ ` y Sia'tda.__`nn i e 1........y.... .....FiD ; k"63/56 ` v44/3;..:. : .OttiO.i::: ::. e es a 1 y :C:. .. :: .` 61Y/51,Montm/ `f .. \ .:: 263/55,`63/43----1 Minnaapeis ""`.`T6rontd'53/41 ` `i 6]7180/SEChicW.,-Detroit-San'Franduo 11 63/I I 66/45 etdt 74/62 Dam1 I Washington .:`. `. / I 66/41ar Kansas City 71'/57l /s" r (1 _1 I 65/41( e I r 1, 75/60 AdaMa esaeEl P.ss 3 ss l--V 1 1 1t6`.

ARCADIA Experience made the difference in DeSoto County High Schools senior night match against North Port on Thursday. Not volleyball experience the Bobcats have four seniors to the Bulldogs three but experience playing fivegame matches that last more than two hours. North Port found itself in a fifth game for the first time all season, and it showed as the Bobcats hit the ball into the net and let passes drop between them in the decisive game. North Ports 10-6 lead turned into a 15-12 loss in the final game of a 25-23, 22-25, 15-25, 28-26, 15-12 win for DeSoto County. We started playing scared in the fifth game when we really shouldve just been playing smart and strategic, North Port coach Becky Halbert said. It takes experience to not have the nerves get to you in the fifth game.

The Tarpons coach shook his head and the corners of his mouth turned down slightly. Not this group, he said atly, resolutely. Charlotte (3-2, 1-0 District 7A-11) cant afford not to respond. Tonights game against unbeaten Fort Myers (6-0, 1-0) gures to play a major role in deciding the district title. The Tarpons dont need to be told any of this. The district standings were posted in the locker room for all of them to see. So are team pictures from all of Charlottes district champions. They know, Waldrop said. They see it on the wall. They want to have their picture up on the wall. With a win, Charlotte could clinch the district title, should Riverdale (3-3, 0-1) win its matchup with Port Charlotte (5-2, 0-1). Or conversely, Fort Myers could clinch with a victory and a Port Charlotte victory over Riverdale. Any other set of results, and contenders still have some work to do.

Unfortunately on Thursday, Out-of-Door Academy had other plans. The Thunder stole from the Tarpons what should have been a celebration, defeating Charlotte 25-21, 4-25, 17-25, 25-22, 15-12 and leaving the senior duo wanting on their big day. Beisner and Riedel were honored in a pregame ceremony recognizing their careers, and when Charlotte blew past Outof-Door 25-4 in Game 2, it seemed as though the night would end fast and well. By the time the Thunder used Reanna Gregorys hot hand to move ahead 9-2 in the fth set, it was clear neither would be true. We didnt come ready to play tonight; we were slow and didnt play hard or 100 percent, Tarpons coach Michelle Dill said. We were very up and down, never really into it. The vibe just wasnt here, and that stinks for our seniors on senior night.

Freshmen Dwight and Dwayne Reynolds, twins out of Charlotte High School, have been double trouble for Dean College (Franklin, Mass.) football opponents. Through seven games, Dwight, a wide receiver, has 16 receptions for a team-high 270 yards and a team-best three touchdowns. He ranks sixth in receiving yards per game in the Northeast Football Conference. He has had two or more receptions in every game. I need to work on getting off the ball quicker, getting off my jams, he said. A deep threat because of his speed, Dwight has had catches of at least 22 yards in ve of seven games. He scored on receptions of 14 yards and 47 yards in a 21-0 victory against Louisburg College. We like to take a handful of shots a game with him downeld, Dean coach Todd Vasey said. Dwight leads the team with nine kickoff returns for 173 yards and has two rushes, both in one game, for 8 yards. Hes a very versatile player, Vasey said. He runs good routes and is a real hard worker. Dwayne has been starting at cornerback. He wanted to play safety but said a number of guys wanted to play there. He has 18 tackles, including a season-best seven in a loss to ASA College, the game when he said the offense came his direction the most. He has a team-high three interceptions and ranks third in interceptions in the conference. In the second game (against Globe Institute of Technology), he had a 45-yard interception returned for a touchdown, a rst-quarter steal that gave Dean a 12-0 lead before the conversion. I was in my coverage, he said. The receiver just missed the ball. I had a whole lot of eld that was free. Dwayne also plays on special teams. He said he is rst-string on the kickoff return and punt return units and second-string on kickoffs. He tackles well, Vasey said. He has very good ball skills. Dean (5-2) plays a critical conference game Saturday at unbeaten Nassau Community College, which is ranked ninth in the latest National Junior College Athletic Association Top 20 poll. Dean is coming off a 4-6 season, its rst losing record since 2004.Know a local athlete away at college who is doing something noteworthy, email BKLE3@aol.comBrothers speed their way into lineupBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT AWAY AT COLLEGE: Reynolds twinsFormer Tarpon players have key roles | GOLF SCOREBOARDLPGA TourKEB-HANABANK At Sky 72 Golf Club, Ocean Course Incheon, South Korea Purse: $2 million Yardage: 6,364; Par: 72 (36-36) Haeji Kang 34-33 Ilhee Lee 32-37 Minjee Lee 33-36 Mirim Lee 35-34 Catriona Matthew 35-34 Amy Yang 36-33 Hee-Kyung Bae 33-37 Chella Choi 37-33 Sandra Gal 36-34 Eun-Hee Ji 36-34 Kim Kaufman 36-34 Brittany Lincicome 34-36 Suzann Pettersen 36-34 Beatriz Recari 36-34 Shanshan Feng 35-36 Julieta Granada 36-35 Karine Icher 35-36 Moriya Jutanugarn 35-36 Jung-Min Lee 34-37 Inbee Park 35-36 Yoon Kyung Heo 36-36 Mi Jung Hur 36-36 Su-Yeon Jang 36-36 Cristie Kerr 35-37 Hyo Joo Kim 36-36 Azahara Munoz 37-35 Yani Tseng 39-33PGA TourSHRINERS HOSPITALS FOR CHILDREN At TPC Summerlin, Las Vegas Purse: $6.2 million Yardage: 7,255; Par: 71 (35-36) Stewart Cink 33-31 Martin Laird 30-34 Russell Knox 35-30 Bo Van Pelt 33-33 Hideki Matsuyama 31-35 Jarrod Lyle 33-33 Brian Stuard 32-34 Andrew Svoboda 34-32 Sam Saunders 34-32 Andres Romero 34-33 Kevin Stadler 36-31 Brandt Snedeker 32-35 Scott Piercy 32-35 Zack Sucher 33-34 Wes Roach 37-30 Vijay Singh 33-34 Adam Hadwin 33-34 Andrew Putnam 35-32 Tim Wilkinson 34-34 Gonzalo Fdez-Castano 34-34 Brice Garnett 36-32 Tim Clark 35-33 D.A.

Hoch: Turn the kids looseBy CHIP ALEXANDERRALEIGH NEWS & OBSERVERScott Hoch will not be on the PGA of Americas Ryder Cup task force, but the former Ryder Cup participant has ideas how to end Americas losing ways. I would go with the younger players and play the heck out of them, Hoch said. They havent learned how to lose, and they havent gotten used to losing. Get rid of all the old guard, and put new guys in there who really want it and arent used to losing yet and are good players. The PGA of America announced Tuesday that it would form an 11-man task force, which includes Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, to address the issues that have led to the U.S. losing six of the past seven competitions. Hoch said he was sick watching the 2012 Ryder Cup, when the U.S. could not hold a four-point lead entering singles matches at Medinah Country Club outside Chicago. Everybody was playing not to lose, Hoch said. Theyre so used to losing. Youve kind of got to look at the records and even though some of your best players are there, you have to go with whos playing well and younger guys and stuff like that. I think we found out something this year about our young players. Weve got some, and weve got some more coming up. The U.S. had newcomers such as Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed on the Ryder Cup team in Scotland last month. Rickie Fowler was playing in his second Ryder Cup. He has not won a match. The U.S. won the 2008 Ryder Cup at Valhalla in Louisville, Ky., with Paul Azinger as captain. Mickelson praised the Azinger approach, which involved the use of four-man pods, but Hoch wasnt sure Azingers system was the difference. Azinger was not named to the task force The guys played good, Hoch said. Hoch said Davis Love III, the U.S. captain in 2012, who was named to the task force, would have been held in the same high regard had the U.S. been able to nish it off at Medinah. Hoch wasnt sure who a suitable captain would be for the 2016 matches at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minn.

LAS VEGAS Stewart Cink birdied seven of the nal 11 holes Thursday for a 7-under 64 and a share of the rst-round lead with Martin Laird in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Cink had a bogey-free round at TPC Summerlin in his rst start since dropping out of the FedEx Cup playoffs after the second event. He won the last of his six PGA Tour titles in the 2009 British Open. Laird also had a bogey-free round. He played the front nine in 5-under 30 and added birdies on Nos. 15 and 18, holing a 50-foot putt on the last. The Scot won the 2009 event and lost in a playoff in 2010 when Jonathan Byrd made a hole-in-one on the fourth extra hole. Scotlands Russell Knox was third at 66.

The Sun /Friday, October 17, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 TALLADEGA, Ala. Guaranteed of a spot in the third round of NASCARs playoffs, Kevin Harvick has no reason to race hard Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway. If it was up to him, he wouldnt race at all. Four of NASCARs top drivers will see their title hopes come to an end at Talladega, where the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship eld will be cut from 12 to eight. Among those in danger of becoming a title-race spectator are defending champion Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth Johnsons closest competition last season Daytona 500 winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. and 2012 champion Brad Keselowski. With so much on the line for others and nothing for Harvick to gain, he would really like to watch it all unfold. Id park it because itll be one hell of a race to watch, Harvick joked about his Talladega strategy. Its going to be fun to watch. Its going to be crazy, offensive racing. Harvicks win last Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway earned him an automatic berth into the third round of the Chase. It was a welcome relief to Harvick, who likes NASCARs new elimination format but complained its created many a sleepless night. It makes me want to puke every week, Harvick said. My wife can tell you, its like you go home and all you do, you lay up at night and you think about, OK, what do I have to do next week? OK, what do we need to do? Who do I need to talk to? It consumes everything that you do. Harvick is having one of those rare dream seasons, his rst with Stewart-Haas Racing. He and crew chief Rodney Childers showed from their rst time on the track together that they had fast No. 4 Chevrolets and would be a force in the championship race. For all the laps led Harvicks career-best 1,815 lead the Sprint Cup Series and the eight poles, he had little to show for his efforts. The win at Charlotte was his third of the season as Harvick was plagued by mechanical problems, pit issues and plain old bad luck. Right before the Chase began, SHR gave Harvick the pit crew of team co-owner Tony Stewart the one that won the 2011 championship in an effort to strengthen Harvicks chances. Harvick, who has never won a Cup title, insisted he never fretted about the uke things that kept him out of Victory Lane, and he has been riding along waiting for new karma. We have a fast car and we can win every race, Harvick said. (We felt) well just keep working on everything and try to get it all worked out, and hopefully, by the end of the year you have everything worked out and you can race for a championship and be in position to race for that championship at Homestead. When you have fast cars, everything else takes care of itself eventually. Bad luck cant haunt you forever. A large amount of credit for the success of the No. 4 team goes to Childers, who left Michael Waltrip Racing last year to be paired with Harvick at SHR. Although he admitted to munching on anti-heartburn tablets throughout the race at Charlotte, Childers always seems calm.

Texas hires new skipperBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThe Texas Rangers hired Pittsburgh bench coach Jeff Banister as their new manager. Banister received the nod over two other nalists, interim manager Tim Bogar and Cleveland Indians bullpen coach Kevin Cash. General manager Jon Daniels said Thursday night that Banister won over the Rangers during the interview process. Daniels described Banister as the best t for a team that quickly wants to recreate a winning culture after its most losses since 1985. Banister will be introduced today during a news conference at the Rangers ballpark. The 49-year-old Banister has been Pittsburghs bench coach for manager Clint Hurdle the past four years and in the Pirates organization for 29 seasons. Hurdle was the Rangers hitting coach when they went to their rst World Series in 2010. Ex-clinic owner pleads guilty: Anthony Bosch, former owner of the Biogenesis of America clinic in Coral Gables, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute testosterone before U.S. District Judge Darrin P. Gayles in Miami. Bosch, who was not a medical doctor yet called himself Dr. T, faces a maximum 10-year prison sentence but is likely to get far less because of cooperation with prosecu tors and with MLBs investigation into player drug use. Defense attorney Guy Lewis said Bosch, 51, provided key information to MLB investigators that led to suspensions of 14 players, including the record season-long suspension handed to Rodriguez for this past year. Around the nation: Three-time world champion David Ortiz will return to the World Series as an analyst for Fox. The Red Sox slugger will be on the preand postgame shows for Games 1 and 2. Hell appear alongside Frank Thomas, Nick Swisher and Gabe Kapler on the set. Mark Grace will join the staff of new Arizona manager Chip Hale as assistant hitting coach. The club announced Hales staff on Thursday, with Andy Green as third base coach and Glenn Sherlock bench coach. Construction equipment is starting to take big bites out of Wrigley Fields exterior outfield walls. The demolition of the historic ballparks bleachers is part of a project to build a large electronic sign and six other outfield signs. The affected walls will not be rebuilt for several weeks.

TV: Sun Sports RADIO: 620 AM SAN FRANCISCO From the rst day of spring training, the San Francisco Giants quietly joked about the fact that this is an even year, so of course they would represent the National League in the World Series. On Thursday, that became a reality. Travis Ishikawas three-run walk-off homer in the ninth inning gave the Giants a 6-3 victory against St. Louis and put the Giants back in the World Series for the third time in ve seasons. With one out and two on in the ninth inning of a game the Giants trailed throughout, Ishikawa blasted a pitch into the right eld arcade section, ending the National League Championship Series in ve games. The Giants poured out of the dugout, so eager to celebrate that Ishikawa had to weave around teammates just to get to the plate as reworks went off behind him. Pablo Sandoval led off the bottom of the ninth with a single to right off Michael Wacha and was replaced by the speedier Joaquin Arias. A one-out walk of Brandon Belt moved the winning run to second, and Ishikawa followed with the biggest hit of a career that nearly ended earlier this season when Pittsburgh designated him for assignment. The Giants will face the Kansas City Royals in the rst matchup of league champions that did not win 90 games. Game 1 is Tuesday in Kansas City. The Giants were down to their nal six outs when manager Bruce Bochy red the biggest bullet he has, sending Michael Morse up to pinch-hit for Madison Bumgarner who was named the NLCS MVP in the eighth. Morse spent six weeks sidelined with a left oblique strain and had not homered since Aug. 15, but he crushed a hanging slider from Pat Neshek over the left eld wall to tie the game at 3. Morse raised both arms the second the ball screamed off the barrel, and he jumped and pumped his rst as he crossed rst. After a wild celebration in the dugout, he took to the top step to further incite a deafening crowd. The buzz wouldnt last long. Santiago Casilla loaded the bases with two outs in the top of the ninth, but Jeremy Affeldt entered and got a ground out. The win was pulled out on a night that looked lost for the Giants. Bumgarner was a touch off early, and he paid for it. Jon Jay and Matt Holliday singled with one out in the rst, and Jhonny Peralta scorched a liner that looked destined for the left-eld corner. But it was hit right at Pablo Sandoval, and the third baseman made a leaping grab and then turned and threw a strike to second to double off Jay and get Bumgarner out of trouble.

Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, October 17, 2014 TAMPA Tampa Bay director of player development Isaiah Harris was red Thursday, hours after he was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the inuence. Every member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is held to a high standard, general manager Jason Licht said in a statement. This type of incident, particularly for someone whose primary responsibilities are to mentor and develop our players off the eld, cannot be tolerated. Due to the nature of his position and the expectations placed on our staff, we made the organizational decision to part ways with Isaiah. Harris, 35, was arrested at 2:06 a.m. in north Tampa, accused of rear-ending a womans car in the drive-thru lane of a Taco Bell, the arrest report said. He was booked at 4:35 a.m. and released at 11:06 a.m. on $500 bond. Driving under the inuence is a second-degree misdemeanor. The accident occurred at the Taco Bell on Dona Michelle Drive, just east of Interstate 75, the report said. The woman whose car was hit identied Harris as he parked his pickup truck at a nearby Steak n Shake. The police ofcer observed several clues of possible impairment, including an abnor mal lack of alertness and slow lethargic mannerism his eyes were bloodshot, watery and glassy, the arrest report said. The ofcer smelled a distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath, and his speech was slurred. Field sobriety exams displayed several clues of impairment. He was arrested and refused to submit to a blood-alcohol test. Tampa Bay TimesBrady passes Pats past Jets: In Foxborough, Mass., Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and the New England Patriots held off the New York Jets 27-25 when Nick Folks 58-yard field goal attempt was blocked on the last play. The surprisingly competitive Jets suffered their sixth straight loss after taking a 19-17 lead with just under 9 minutes left in the third quarter on Chris Ivorys 1-yard run. Stephen Gostkowski put the Patriots (5-2) ahead to stay with his second field goal, a 36-yarder with 4:10 to go in the third. Bradys 19-yard touchdown pass to Danny Amendola gave them an eight-point lead with 4:10 remaining. The Jets (1-6) made it 27-25 on Geno Smiths 10-yard scoring pass to Jeff Cumberland with 2:31 left, but Smiths pass for the 2-point conversion was incomplete. Ivory finished with 107 yards rushing. Rice arbiter faces early decision: A neutral arbiter is expected to decide early next week whether NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should testify during an appeal of Ray Rices indefinite suspension, a person familiar with the case told The Associated Press. Goodell said last week he would leave the decision to former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones. She was picked by the commissioner and the players union to hear Rices appeal earlier this month. The hearing is tentatively set for November.Bucs fire player development chief after arrest NFL NOTEBOOKHarris cited for DUI in the early morningFROM WIRE REPORTS Mississippi State star Dak Prescott says he is taking steps to avoid being the next college football star to be accused of exchanging autographs for cash. Ive started just personalizing things making sure I write to the person that theyre asking for. And I dont sign things in bundles just being a lot more aware of what Im signing, the Heisman Trophy contender said. Personalizing an autographed item lowers its value. Good idea, but still a simple Google search of Dak Prescott autograph generates about a dozen images of photographs, mini-helmets and footballs for sale with Prescotts signature on them. Or at least a signature the seller claims to be Prescotts. Prices range for $20 for an 8x10 print to $200 for that mini-helmet, which would otherwise go for about $30. Somebody is making a nice prot. A year after Johnny Manziel was suspended for a half after an investigation by Texas A&M and the NCAA into whether he was paid to sign memorabilia, Georgias Todd Gurley is being investigated for the same thing. The star running back has already missed one game, and its unclear if hell return. The quantity of signatures from Heisman winner Jameis Winston many authenticated by the same company linked to Gurley has forced Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher to eld questions about whether his two-sport star has done anything wrong. Hes never taken a dime for anything, Fisher said earlier this week. Hes signed thousands of things. I mean, the guy sits for an hour and a half before a baseball game and signed and an hour and a half after a baseball game. He is very accommodating to people. In some cases, schools have encouraged their players to be less accommodating. Arizona wide receiver Austin Hill said coach Rich Rodriguez has made the team cut back on the impromptu autograph sessions after games. I think our media staff and everyone we have now controls it a little better than what we had in the past, because in the past there used to be people around McKale (Center) just with pieces of paper, with footballs, with random things, trying to get us to sign, he said. To be nice, we used to sign them. But since Coach Rod got here, it hasnt been too much of a problem. Of course, sometimes the school asks him to sign material. I had to sign a couple of footballs for some big donors, things like that, Hill said. Former Louisville player Calvin Pryor, now with the New York Jets, said he didnt get asked to do much signing in college but saw plenty of demand for teammate Teddy Bridgewater, the record-breaking quarter back who is now with the Minnesota Vikings. Pryor, who played under coach Charlie Strong, now with Texas, said Louisville coaches had a very clear policy: Do not give any autographs, and that the staff monitored it closely. He said the message was: Better be safe than sorry, because we dont want you to get suspended or having to go through the NCAA. They just kept us away from it. That meant occasionally disappointing fans, though Louisville would hold formal sessions that gave fans access to players. Pryor said those took the pressure off the biggest stars. I think thats a smarter way to do it, he said. South Carolina receiver Pharoh Cooper said there are no rules against signing away from school-sponsored events, but the Gamecocks are drilled on the rules by compliance staff and and told to be wary. They just ask us to be careful about it, about what we sign and how many items, he said. But sometimes, theyll tell you to personalize it. People are going to try and get money off your name and sell it, so youve just really got to be smart about what you do.Troubling sign: Policies tighten on autographs By RALPH D. RUSSOASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL: AutographsPlayers, schools walk ne line as signatures lead to violations AP FILE PHOTOIn April, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston autographs a program for Michelle Reilly in Tallahassee. A year after Johnny Manziel was suspended after an investigation into whether he was paid to sign memorabilia, Georgias Todd Gurley is being investigated for the same thing.AP FILE PHOTOAlabama coach Nick Saban signs for fans at BryantDenny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Ala., during the preseason. Many schools are limiting autographs to these fan days. H earing process gets 1st deadlineBy KAREEM COPELANDASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE The resolution to Florida States code of conduct investigation of Jameis Winston may not come before the end of the football season despite imminent deadlines in the process. The rst deadline is today, when he and the woman who said he sexually assaulted her in December 2012 must strike one of three potential ofcials that will preside over the hearing. But when that formal hearing will take place remains unclear. Both sides must still present possible dates for the hearing at an information session, then the university can set a date. But once a date is set, either side could request postponements of the hearing for a variety of reasons that would have to be individually reviewed. Once the hearing concludes, the process isnt complete. A formal decision letter must then be sent to Winston within 10 class days after the hearing ends, but that limit could also be extended if additional consideration of evidence and deliberation is required, FSU spokeswoman Browning Brooks explained in an email. Bother parties can view all materials related to the case at the information session and get details about the process and their rights. Florida State announced last week it will use an independent ofcial with no connection to the university for the hearing. The university selected three former Florida Supreme Court justices as possible ofcials, but has not publicly named them. Both sides can strike one. Baine Kerr, one of the lawyers for the woman, took issue that all three are senior men. While we wish there was more diversity on the panel of potential hearing ofcers (they) are very highly qualied, Kerr said. We intend to participate in the process and promptly meet all deadline requests from the university. COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Jameis Winston IRISH AT SEMINOLESWHO: No. 5 Notre Dame (6-0) at No. 2 FSU (6-0, 4-0 ACC) WHEN: Saturday, 8 p.m. WHERE: Doak Campbell Stadium, Tallahassee TV: ABC RADIO: 820 AM, 1040 AM COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOKMichigan president wants athletics reviewFLINT, Mich. Michigan President Mark Schlissel said Thursday he is examining issues within the schools athletic department. Athletic Director Dave Brandon and football coach Brady Hoke have been criticized in recent weeks, particularly after quarterback Shane Morris was not immediately removed from the Sept. 27 game against Minnesota after a hard hit. Schlissel said Thursday at a Michigan regents meeting that he was deeply disappointed in the departments response and handling of that situation. Schlissel also indicated he wants to do an indepth review of Michigan athletics. Pittsburgh 21, Virginia Tech 16: In Pittsburgh, James Conner ran for 85 yards and two scores and Pittsburgh ended a three-game losing streak. Quarterback Chad Voytik added a career-high 118 yards on the ground and hit Tyler Boyd for a 53-yard touchdown pass as the Panthers (4-3, 2-1 ACC) took control early and held off a late rally by the Hokies. Virginia Tech (4-3, 1-2) trailed by 12 in the fourth quarter. Gurley likely to sit again: Georgia star tailback Todd Gurleys alleged rules violations were discussed in a meeting between top school officials and NCAA eligibility staff. Following the meeting in Indianapolis, University of Georgia President Jere Morehead said in a statement There is no new news at this time and no further comment is necessary. Coach Mark Richt said on his Twitter feed he expects Gurleys indefinite suspension to continue for No. 10 Georgias game at Arkansas on Saturday. Around the nation: LSU and Miami will open the 2018 season at the $1.2 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 1, 2018. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said safety Eilar Hardy can return to the roster, although he has academic work to complete before he can practice. BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS safety Dashon Goldson contributed to Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco throwing ve touchdowns in a 48-17 win over the Bucs on Sunday. Nickel back Leonard Johnson, who yielded one of those touchdowns, was benched after four plays. Even Pro Bowl corner back Alterraun Verner has been shaky, beaten for scores by the Falcons Julio Jones, the Steelers Antonio Brown and the Ravens Steve Smith. And on Wednesday, the Bucs signed cornerback Isaiah Frey, a sixth-round draft pick of the Bears in 2012, Smiths nal year as coach there. You have to get back to the basics, defensive backs coach Gil Byrd said Wednesday. There are some things youd like to do to put players in position and adjust on the run. Were not at that point. But what we can do as coaches is simplify things. Make it so they can play fast and not have too much on their plate that they have to think about it rst. Thats what we as coaches can do. Alignment. Situational football. Understand the situation when its going on in the game, when its happening, why its happening. I wish I wouldve done a better job of that. Against the Ravens, cornerback Brandon Dixon was beaten for touchdowns twice by receiver Torrey Smith, once on a slant, the other on a skinny post when he clearly expected safety help. In each case, Smith got a free release and wasnt touched until he reached the end zone. The guys are really try ing to do the things that were asking them to do, Byrd said. And for me, it starts with coaching. If theyre not performing out there, then Ive got to take a look in the mirror and see what am I doing or not doing to help the players to be successful. Of course, good defensive back play and a pass rush go hand in hand. The 1-5 Bucs have had neither this season. They are tied for 23rd in the league with nine sacks. They did not hit Flacco once on Sunday. Opposing quarterbacks have a 111.8 passer rating against Tampa Bay this season. Coverage in general starts with the rush and it hasnt been good enough, Smith said. Simple. But from there, weve given up big passes. Were not supposed to give up big passes. Youre supposed to earn it the hard way. We havent made plays on the ball. So we just havent played consistent football there. Last game, a couple play ers werent on our football team when we started the season. Im sure some guys who have been here would say theyre not pleased with their play so far. I would denitely say that. But hopefully the next time we go out against Minnesota, we can correct some of those things.BUCSFROM PAGE 1 h.............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................. .

The Wisconsin coach sees the addition of Maryland and Rutgers as a boon for the conference that will expand recruiting for the newcomers and for Midwest schools that saw doors slammed by the formation of the Big East years ago. Youre opening up the East more to the Midwest, and youre also opening up the Midwest for people who maybe want to go to the shore in the offseason, Ryan said. If we lose some recruits because they want to go to the Jersey Shore, thats gonna hurt. I go to the Jersey Shore every summer. Ryan has a strong recruiting pitch at the moment, though. Wisconsin is the unanimous pick to win the Big Ten after reaching the Final Four last season, and the Badgers Frank Kaminsky is the preseason player of the year. Wisconsin returns four starters after going 30-8. The Badgers beat Michigan State, last years Big Ten tournament champion, and Ohio State in the vote by conference media.

SOCCEREbola means African Cup hosting could be a lottery: Just three months out from the African Cup of Nations its still uncertain where the tournament will be held because of the Ebola virus, and it could even come down to the Confederation of African Football drawing the name of a country out of a hat. Morocco denied reports it has withdrawn as the host of the 16-team event, but wants it postponed from its planned dates in January and February because of fears over the spread of Ebola, which is surging through three countries in West Africa. A postponement will not work for CAF, which insists the Jan. 17-Feb. 8 dates must be honored. ...

Wisconsin is the unanimous pick to win the Big Ten, and the Badgers Kaminsky is the preseason player of the year. was probably going to go in their favor because they seemed to get more momentum. The predicament of a fifth game was a far more familiar position for the Bulldogs, who have played multiple five-game matches this season, including one last week against Hardee. They rallied from down 9-2 and 14-11 to win the fifth game of that match, and showed no panic when faced with a similar deficit Thursday. Were always up for the challenge, Bulldogs coach Laura White said. I always tell the girls, its survival of the fittest. To me, whatever team is mentally in the ballgame and physically in the ballgame is gonna win the ballgame. To get to that point in the match, DeSoto County rebounded from giving up a 15-1 run to end Game 3. That put North Port up two games to one, but DeSoto County took a 20-17 lead in the fourth game. After giving up that lead and falling behind 21-20, the Bulldogs put together another run to go ahead 24-21, thanks to several kills by senior Kacey Steyer. After the Bulldogs served to win the game and failed six times, Steyer finally spiked one right into the heart of the North Port defense to win it 26-24. Steyer and fellow senior Michaela Roberts led the team with 13 and 14 kills, respectively. Datasia Wallace, another senior, led with 28 digs and 23 assists. DeSoto County starts district tournament play by hosting Lemon Bay at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Aspen Davidson led North Port with 19 kills and 34 digs, and Alexis Mootz provided 28 assists. The Bobcats lost a coin toss for third place, so theyll start their district tournament with a home match against Palmetto on Monday. If they win, they will go to top-seed Lakewood Ranch on Tuesday.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@sun-herald.com.BULLDOGSFROM PAGE 1 llr--r.j.4414 -4 ''.4.16

Charlotte QB Brennan Simms took over the areas passing lead last week with 619 yards. He has 6 TD passes and 8 interceptions.

RB Jacob Ward (290 rushing yards in 2014) also is a top threat for the Tritons.NORTH PORT AT SARASOTAWHEN: 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Cleland Stadium at Ihrig Field, Sarasota High School, Sarasota RECORDS: North Port 1-6, 0-2 in District 7A-10; Sarasota 1-5, 0-1. LAST WEEK: North Port lost at Port Charlotte, 53-13; Sarasota lost at Venice, 46-0. TALKING POINTS: North Port is 0-21 against Sarasota County schools since it opened. QB Mike Innello has been solid for the Bobcats since taking over behind center. He has 384 passing yards. RB Zefen Bruno leads North Port with 265 rushing yards (and 2 TDs), a number stunted by a suspension that cost him parts of the last two games. WR Stantley Thomas leads the area with 23 catches for 525 yards. He also has three TDs. Sarasota QB Xacari Hawkins was sacked eight times against Venice. Sailors are coming off a brutal part of their schedule, as their last four opponents (Lincoln, Manatee, Braden River, Venice) are a combined 24-2.PORT CHARLOTTE AT RIVERDALEWHEN : 7:30 p.m. WHERE : Karl Engel Field, Riverdale High School, Fort Myers RECORDS : Port Charlotte 5-2, 0-1 in District 7A-11; Riverdale 3-3, 0-1. LAST WEEK : Port Charlotte defeated North Port, 53-13; Riverdale defeated LaBelle, 40-7. TALKING POINTS : Both teams need a win to stay in the postseason picture.

Indians RB Brandon Davis rushed for 133 yards and 2 TDs against Sarasota in relief of the injured Malik Bryant. But Bryant could be ready to go tonight. Receiver/wildcat QB Langston Provitt is still the main threat in the Indians attack. Largo QB Donavan Hale is athletic and should be the focus of the Venice defense. He has passed for 853 yards and 5 TDs. He has rushed for 4 touchdowns this season and ran for 124 yards against Osceola. Rob Shore David Dorseys recently released book, Fourth Down in Dunbar, provides a compelling look at some of the personalities to come out of the inner city of Fort Myers. You probably know some of the names, even if you dont follow high school around the area. Deion Sanders (from North Fort Myers High School) is the most prominent, but other football players such as Jevon Kearse (Fort Myers) and Earnest Graham (Mariner) also gure prominently. Dorsey, a sportswriter for the Fort Myers NewsPress, also examines the downtrodden neighbor hood (known as Dunbar) that spawned these players. At its best, Fourth Down In Dunbar reads like a cross between a sports memoir and The Wire, showing the origins of these football players as well as a city once known as the crack cocaine capital of the South. (The chapter on crack lord Ronnie Tape is among the books most fascinating.) There are a few minor frustrations. Dorsey wraps up Sanders almost-adoption of former North Fort Myers standout Noel Devine in less than a page (probably an indication that Sanders himself didnt feel like talking about it). But there is plenty of material here to chew on. What you will get is a near-endless roster of talents; by the end, your head will be swimming. And those who have seen some of these players playing against area teams will appreciate knowing the backstory Dorsey provides.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comBook explores Dunbar football PREP FOOTBALL: Fourth Down in DunbarBy ROB SHORESPORTS WRITER BOOK SIGNINGDavid Dorsey will be signing copies of his book Fourth Down in Dunbar today at Copperfish Books (1205 Elizabeth St.) in Punta Gorda at 5 p.m., prior to Charlotte High Schools home game against Fort Myers. LABELLE It was a 24hour span the Lemon Bay High School volleyball team would rather forget. On Wednesday the Manta Rays lost a heartbreaker to Port Charlotte and their middle hitter to a broken foot. Thursday they travelled two hours to face LaBelle for its senior night. It was more heartbreak as Lemon Bay frittered away a big lead in one game and had a comeback fall short in another as the Cowgirls won 28-26, 25-23, 25-11 in the nondistrict, regular-season nale for both schools. The Manta Rays (10-14) might have been tired, but all seemed well when they took a 22-14 lead in the rst game on the service of Caitlin Montgomery, who highlighted an 8-1 run. LaBelle (9-16), a year removed from the regional nals but in rebuilding mode this season, staved off six game points and ended the game with a 14-4 run. The Cowgirls broke early in Game 2 and held the Manta Rays at arms length for much of the game before Morgan Alderman served a rally that gave Lemon Bay a 23-22 lead. Senior Logann White righted the ship for LaBelle as she served out the match. Lemon Bay coach Stacy Dewolfe emptied her bench in the nal game to give her starters a break. Were wiped; were toast. When we get the lead, I dont know if weve been getting complacent or they get tired, Dewolfe said. That last game I just put everyone in, well go home and watch the footage and get ready for districts. They will have to go to DeSoto County on Tuesday without junior middle hitter Ocie Flowers, who was put in a full cast Thursday afternoon and is done for the season. Im going to let them sleep and rest, and on Monday well go over who can take that hitting position. Well do our best to get ready, Dewolfe said. Maureen Ryan led Lemon Bay with seven kills. Cassidy Grimmett had 12 digs, while Jessie LeClerc had 18 assists. LaBelle was led by Macy OFerrell with 10 kills and 19 assists. Andrea Stanforth had 12 kills, while White had 19 digs.

They dont do any thing that makes you go, Wow, Waldrop said. They run it and run it well. Theyre just a veteran team. Charlotte needs to bounce back from its 2912 loss to American last week, a game decided by three Tarpon turnovers returned for touchdowns in the nal four minutes. But as Waldrop said, hes not worried. As far as hes concerned, he stopped worrying when the team stopped watching tape from the loss Saturday morning. The only residual feelings about American is its not about the game anymore, said Charlotte quarterback Brennan Simms, who threw three interceptions last week. Its about how much harder Im going to work. Plus, Waldrop said Charlotte has had a good week of practice. We dont turn the ball over in practice, he said. Hopefully, we dont (tonight). But as noted previously, thats only part of the story. The Riverdale-Port Charlotte winner still gures to have something to say about the playoff picture. That makes the game just as important from a postseason perspective. Its a huge game, Port Charlotte coach Jordan Ingman said. Its district and on the road; any time youre on the road, it adds another dynamic. So thats always a challenge. The Pirates rushing offense has been tough to stop. In the Pirates 53-13 over North Port last week, Brennan Norus (115 yards), Martin Luther (108) and Anthony Stephens (105) each went over 100 yards. The kids are hungry to play, Ingman said. I think that showed last week.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comCHSFROM PAGE 1 The Thunder jumped to a nine-point lead in Game 1 to leave the Tarpons oundering and Out-of-Door with a 1-0 match lead. Charlottes funk ebbed and owed throughout the night. The Tarpons came roaring out of the gate in the second set to take a 2-1 lead they didnt relinquish. The Thunder (11-8) called timeout twice but managed to score 4 points in the set as Beisner served 16 consecutive points, three of them aces. The Tarpons (17-8) disposed of Out-of-Door with little trouble in the third set, but again received a run for their money in the fourth, which the Thunder took by three points after several unforced Charlotte errors. It set the stage for the race to 15, making the night memorable for all the wrong reasons. Early on, the Tarpons struggled to keep pace with a red-up Out-ofDoor team, which used Natalie Buffett to do most of its damage throughout the night. The outside hitter nished with a 18 kills and was complemented by Gregorys 11 kills and six blocks. We came out tonight and played hard, and Im proud of the way the girls pulled back together after (Game 2), said Out-ofDoor coach Stefanie Betz, a college teammate of Dills at Western Carolina University. It was a great win for us. I told the girls that win or lose, they needed to play the same way theyll play in districts next week, and they did that tonight. Beisner had a matchbest 19 kills and four aces, and Riedel chipped in with steady serving and solid defense at key points.TARPONSFROM PAGE 1SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNOCharlotte High Schools Jessica Moore (13) and Mykelli Taylor attempt to block the shot of Out-ofDoor Academys Natalie Buett during Thursdays match in Punta Gorda. 50471813 ;___$100 l4 Player SpecialAfter 11amValid thru 1 cour 014Must prcx+nt coupon11, G" am.11m offm..Cord. .ousts RIVERWOODCtu

Herald Page 6 Friday, October 17, 2014 Q How often should our community refresh landscape mulch around palm trees? Several of our palms look like too much mulch was applied. Mulch is built up against the base of the trunk. Our community also lost a palm tree to a disease called Ganoderma. Could we have the palm trunk ground onsite and reuse it for mulch? Larry, Port Charlotte A Pull back any leftover, or ganic mulch that is laying against the trunk. Then check the mulch depth. If the depth is 2 to 3 inches or more, do not apply any new mulch. Wait till spring and check it again before adding fresh mulch. Any organic mulch can be over applied. The following types are less prone to compacting and damaging the palm trunk: Pine bark, pine straw, hardwood mulch, compost or shredded twigs and small branches. Grass clippings, compost and wood mulch leave the trunk easily buried. Standard best practice calls for mulch left 6 inches from the base of the trunk, no matter what size the palm tree. None should rest against the trunk. Finish by mulching over the main root zone extending out 3 to 4 feet. Lay the mulch at on the ground, never mounding it up around the trunk. On bare soil, apply fresh, 4-inch deep and expect to have to re-mulch in 6 months. After several rains, a mulch layer of 2 to 3 inches should remain. Overzealous mulching could cause rooting and establishment problems, increase chewing damage from voles and increase chances for root rot and decay. Ganoderma Butt Rot is a deadly soil fungus, Ganoderma zonatum, causing the palm trunk to rot. Sometimes it is easy to diagnose. Conks form on the lower trunk. They are large, hard and shelflike. However, not all dead palms with ganoderma produce these conks prior to death. Freshly ground mulch from a dead or dying palm may inadvertently infect a healthy palm when applied as mulch. There are currently no control measures for preventing or stopping the spread of ganoderma present in the soil. A palm should be removed as soon as possible after the conks appear on the trunk. Conks may also form on the palms stump if not removed. Dispose of diseased palm parts in regular trash pickup. Remove as much of the dead stump and root system as possible. Healthy palms with roots in the same soil may or may not be infected years later. After removing all parts of the dead palm, plant any other tree or shrub type that is not in the palm family. Any tools that were used in removing the palm should be cleaned of all soil and sterilized before using again. Use either rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). For more information, visit http://edis.ifas.u.edu/ pdfles/PP/PP10000.pdf.Q What is the spider living under my pool cage? How did they get there? I also see a greyish, oval cocoon on the inside of the cage screen. Are they related? How can I get rid of this spider? Edward, Port Charlotte A This is the Spiny Orb Weaver. Despite this spiders bright colors and small (4-8 ml) crab-like body, its thought of as just a temporary nuisance. Transplant as many of the adult spiders as you nd back into their natural habitat a.k.a. yard. The original spider may have been inadvertently brought in on a potted plant. Spiny orb weavers are just one of many benecial spiders catching ies, moths, small beetles, wasps, bees and mosquitoes. Once you start seeing cocoons or egg sacs on the sides of the cage, remove them with a soft brush. Tiny spiderlings emerge from each cocoon. They take up residence by spinning a single trapline that hangs from the top of the pool cage. Move them web and all back into the yard with a long-handled brush. As an adult, they spin a typical, 12-inch-wide spiraling web with 30 or more radii. Look for the 3/8-inch long, adult spider resting in the center of a at, ornate web. If the web is devoid of the spider, the adult is somewhere along its trapline connected to the main web. The orbweaver prefers to ee when disturbed rather than bite. It is not known to be poisonous to humans. Visit http://edis.ifas. u.edu/pdfles/IN/IN32400.pdf. Thomas Becker is a horticulture assistant for Charlotte Countys Florida-Friendly Landscaping program.

Thomas Becker Horticulture Assistant PHOTOS PROVIDEDA female adult spiny orb weaver. The female adult spiny orb weaver lays a cocoon or egg sac often found attached to the side of a screen over a pool cage that contains 160-200 spiderlings. Sabal palms are grouped into one large bed where mulch was properly applied at 4 inches deep. Although the mulch has decomposed, at least 3 inches remain and no additional mulch should be applied. 50473204 SALES! We have special prices on Furniture Everyday! See store for details!

Herald Page 16 Friday, October 17, 2014 Do you remember when?The following excerpts are from the Daily Herald-News from Oct. 12, 1974, through Oct. 18, 1974:Train station a beautiful landmarkAmong the numerous beautiful, old buildings in Punta Gorda is the local train station. Its doors are now locked and its waiting rooms empty. The depot was built in 1928 by the Atlantic Coast Line.U.S. Cleveland named Good Guy of the month U.S. Cleveland, retired assistant postmaster for Charlotte County, received the Good Guy award for October from the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce at its monthly meeting this morning. Presenting the award was John Fugua, vice president of the chambers board of directors.Take free glaucoma testThanks to a dear friends and neighbors letter from the Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda Lions Clubs, we can report, with high praise, that the clubs will sponsor a glaucoma screening clinic on Oct. 26 at the Charlotte Cultural Center. The Lions are known for their outstanding work in sight preservation work. We urge you to take advantage of this opportunity.Salute to newspaper carriersToday is the day set aside to honor newspaper carriers. To be a successful carrier takes a lot more than the desire to make some money. Daily Herald-News carriers must be on the job six days a week, rain or shine, hot or cold. Many of our carriers are schoolboys and girls, leaving their classes to deliver their papers. A newspaper route instills a strong business sense of responsibility. Without them, few of us would read a newspaper. We are proud of them and hope youll join in and salute them. Mary Beth Skaggs, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Donald E. Skaggs, Port Charlotte, has been a carrier since May of this year. She delivers about 95 papers in the Stillwater to Hepner area and also to the Presbyterian Villas. Skaggs attends St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School and is 10 years old. Chris McClellan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul F. McClellan of Northwest Lakemont, Port Charlotte, is a carrier in the Higgs Park area. He has been a carrier since June. McClellan is 11 years old and a student at Port Charlotte Junior High School. John Walsh, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Walsh of Edgehill, Port Charlotte, is 12 years old and delivers in the Edgehill to Croton Terrace area. Walsh carries about 60 papers each day. Donald H. Wik, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Wik of Key Lane, Port Charlotte, has been a carrier since December 1973. He delivers about 100 papers in the Kenyon to Starlite area. Wik attends St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School and is 12 years old. Bill Rominger is essential in the process through which your newspaper arrives on time. He has been employed by the Daily Herald-News for ve years. He delivers bundles of papers to the carriers and also tends the racks in which newspapers are placed.Barbee elected to board of directors for Marine BankGene Phinney, president of the Marine Bank of Punta Gorda, announced the election of Robert J. Barbee to the board of directors. Barbee is a longtime resident of Punta Gorda and one of the developers of Punta Gorda Isles, of which he is currently vice president. Barbee is also active in civic affairs and the Boy Scouts of America.Womans Club luncheon held at Presbyterian ChurchThe Punta Gorda Womans Club met at the First United Presbyterian Church recently for a carry-in luncheon and meeting. Among those attending were Mrs. Vasco Peeples, president; Mrs. Kenneth McCleary, rst vice president; Mrs. Harrell, second vice president; Mrs. Frederick, recording secretary; Mrs. M.D. Craighead, treasurer; Mrs. Sylvia Gordon Cook, cor responding secretary; and Mrs. Tosie Hindman, supervisor of elections and the guest speaker.

Serving Punta Gorda and Burnt Store A section of the SUN 16 pages hen Steve Bernier, the postmaster at the East Marion Avenue post ofce, drives to work during the month of October, he literally gets goose bumps. In the front of the building, pink ribbons, more than 6 feet in height, can easily be seen. On the agpole, just beneath the American ag, Bernier alternates a black and white banner with a pink ribbon on it. Inside the post ofce is a sea of pink ribbons, poinsettias, vases even on the sides of the countertop. The reason for the pink invasion is extremely important October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And Bernier and his employees take that very seriously.

We have ofcially made it through the slower months of summer, a time of great heat, minimal local activities and a slower-than-we-would-liketo-experience business pace. But all that is behind us for the foreseeable future. Thats because our busy season has returned. In my regular commute up and down Interstate 75 and throughout the county, particularly on U.S. 41, I have noticed thicker congestion and a more regular appearance of out-of-state license plates. The lines at the grocery store have slowed a bit, and we are now nding it necessary to call ahead before dining out. Around town, employees are remarking on the changes in their workplace, with phones ringing constantly and doors seeming to never close. Here at the Sun our customer service representatives are taking a larger volume of phone calls, and the walk-in trafc has bumped up considerably, with many of our customers reporting they had just exited the interstate and are looking to make their next few months in paradise as active as possible. This lively energy permeates downtown Punta Gorda, where folks who are new to the area are exploring their new town as others are remembering their old haunts. And with Halloween just around the corner, you can rest assured the action will continue to build at the 31st rolls closer. Right now, in the center of Punta Gorda, people can see the nal construction stages for our towns annual Haunting on the Harbor festival and haunted house. Mere yards away is another construction site, this one the future home of our citys very large and beautiful Christmas tree. This juxtaposition of holidays should indicate one thing: once Punta Gorda gets the party started, it doesnt stop. As you make your way out into the community, and Im sure you will, be sure to keep an eye out for the photographers and writers for the Punta Gorda Herald. You may just make it into the printed edition or onto one of our social media sites. And remember, friends, smile. Not just for the camera, but for knowing this little town is a beacon of activity, commerce and excitement for locals, seasonal residents and day-trippers in search of a slice of paradise.

Herald Page 4 Friday, October 17, 2014 People seem to enjoy their favorite pastimes more when shared with others of the same ilk. Why else would people leave their comfortable homes to ock to bars and watch football games? Wine, craft beer, food, crafts, hobbies and athletic endeavors all seem more enjoyable in the company of your mates. Thats also true of cigars, a centuries-old tradition that has bred a large corps of avid and knowledgeable fans who can discuss wrapper, binder, ller, shape, bouquet and ring size much like an oenophile dissects a wine. Unbeknownst to most residents, Punta Gorda has just such a place for cigar-lovers to gather Havana Tranquility. Located in its own attractive building at 25139 E. Marion Ave., you cant miss the large sign next to the charming terracotta-colored house surrounded by tropical vegetation. Dr. Emil Dameff, a cigar lover for several decades, spared no expense in creating one of the most luxuriously appointed private cigar clubs in the area. Even better, it has a smoke shop with an unbelievable selection of hard-to-nd ne cigars that is open to the public seven days a week. Dameff, a longtime Florida resident and a medical doctor at Bayfront Health Punta Gorda, rst fell in love with cigars in the early 1990s while on a vacation cruise with his wife. In the ensuing years, he became a serious collector and a charter member of Ron Andrews Olde Punta Gorda Cigar VIP club on Wood Street. After Andrews sold his place in 2011, he and his club members, including Dameff, got together and decided to nd another place where they could enjoy their favorite smokes. Andrews, now the manager of Havana Tranquility, said, We tried to make it happen. About a year ago, we decided to buy a building but couldnt get the nancing. Thats when Dameff stepped forward in a big way. He said, I built myself a cigar room as a separate house on my property, and the guys would come over to smoke. Thats when the seed of this idea came up. I wanted to create a place that was my vision and different than anything else in this area. He purchased the East Marion property and a lot next door for future expansion, and then set about making his dream a reality, putting to use his own creativity, sense of taste and wisdom gained in numerous visits to other world-class cigar clubs. The name of the club is well-chosen, a fact that becomes apparent on arrival. The outside has a Key West/Caribbean look to it, and tropical plants and palms are abundant. Thats the Havana part of the name. Press your nger on the biometric entry system on the left door, and the sound of trafc on East Marion disappears as you walk into a tranquil cigar oasis. He said, I wanted an old-world concept, not just a Cuban look, but something with a Caribbean, Churchillian, oldBritish feel. Something with a lot of dark wood that Winston Churchill would feel comfortable having a cabinet meeting in. The interior is built around a unique slab of granite, which is used throughout the club area, in the serpentine-shaped bar, countertop, window boxes and tabletops. The light xtures, accessories and furniture reinforce an aura of luxury and tranquility, and the walls add yet another layer of renement. In the smoking department, no stone was left unturned. Members have 24-hour access to their club through the biometric entry system on the left side door, so they can indulge on their own schedule. Theres a fridge and bar (BYOB), coffee and espresso, a storage locker and an honor humidor containing a wide selection of cigars. Custom-made leather chairs are lled with compartments for cigars and accessories, while twin high-def TVs, one a 70-incher, are available for viewing at appropriately tranquil volume levels. In the public area, the main humidor and top-of-the-line smoking accessories are accessible to members and cigar shoppers who drop by. Outside is a mister-cooled area for dominoes, a game highly popular with cigar lovers, especially in Latin America. However luxurious and well-planned, cigars are the main event at any club. Dameff said, We have over 40 vendors and 500 different facings (open boxes) in a range from $4.50 to $95 a cigar. We want to provide enough variety so people can nd something to their liking. Variety there is in the form of every ring size, shape, length and wrapper, many of them from small, highly respected makers that are almost impossible for a cigar lover to ever lay eyes on. All are available to the public at MSRP, with another 15 percent off for club members. The top-of-the-line cigar accessories, like lighters, humidors and cases, come from companies like S.T. DuPont and Brizard perfect for gifts. For those who need guidance, Dameff, Thomas and the rest of the staff are certied tobacconists, knowledgeable on all the brands and able to give good advice. Shop hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Fridays; 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays; and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays.

Call the chamber for full details.WRIGHTFROM PAGE 3 When the Turtle Club opened in Punta Gorda more than a decade ago, it quickly became an important part of downtowns burgeoning dining scene. Lovingly reconstructed by owners Michael Moore and Peter Tierney from the old bricks of the buildings that originally stood on the choice spot along West Marion Avenue, its circular bar, cozy, dark-wood ambience and quality highend food and drink made for top reviews and a steady clientele. The worst economic recession since the Great Depression caused the Turtle Club to shut its doors as customers cut back on their spending. The restaurant, still looking as regal as ever, has been empty until recently when Moore and Tierney decided to reopen it with a different concept. It is now under the management of Chris Evans, who has as much experience running local restaurants as anybody in town. During a recent interview, he was training staff and preparing for a soft opening last week and a planned grand-opening celebration on Oct. 20 at the restaurant, now named Turtle Club Coastal Tavern & Claw Bar. With a few major exceptions, the restaurant looks much the same as before, but diners will nd a much different approach to the food. Evans said, The Turtle Club before was known for ne dining, but you make yourself a special-occasion restaurant. You can do that in large cities, but its hard to do that here. We made the menu much simpler and priced it right for Charlotte County. That doesnt imply that ne dining is not available. It just means customers now have choices in food, wine and beer based on the size of appetite and wallet capacity. He said, What were trying to do is hit the Charlotte County price point but still offer high-end dining options. Those options are apparent on the menu, which lists items from a quality burger or grilled sh sandwich up to grilled lobsters and steaks for those looking for a more robust or nuanced meal. The same holds for beer and wine drinkers. Everything from big-brewery standards to quality craft beers are covered with both bottles and drafts at several price points. Many beer drinkers got their start with Pabst Blue Ribbon, a cheap brew that tasted as good as any. A Turtle Club draft is only $2.75. Evans is especially proud of the menus approach to its wine list. He said, We have wine in the $25 and $35 categories and then on up to $45 and $60. There are six or seven choices in each category; our supplier is Big Crush (a local company). Everyone should be able to nd a wine geared to their needs. As the new name implies, more emphasis will be placed on seafood under the new concept. Despite its location on the water, Punta Gorda isnt overloaded with seafood-oriented restaurants. The main menu adds choices such as lobster, salmon, oysters, mussels and ceviche, but true lovers of the briny deep are going to want to order from the Claw Bar. Its situated at the back of the restaurant but its offerings are also available in the bar, lounge, dining room and outdoor patio. Clawed critters and shrimp and oysters can be had, and Evans is high on towers of seafood designed for two or four people. Another major change is visible to anyone walking out the back of the restaurant. The beautifully landscaped Herald Court plaza and park, complete with bubbling fountain and TEAM Punta Gorda-planted landscaping, now can seat 70 customers. Punta Gorda diners love to eat outside, and few places can match this level of ambience. Friday evenings, oysters will be grilled on the patio. Local Travis Winesett, who has been in the kitchen of many local establishments, is the Turtle Clubs chef, and he is a good choice for the seafood orientation. He will probably be grilling those oysters. I love seafood, he said. I grew up eating it and watching my father work at the old Raw Bar (once a popular place at the north end of the Barron Collier Bridge). Winesett believes in doing things the hard way. Our philosophy is everything is made from scratch the bread, sauces, even the butter pickles. And we put just as much love into our french fries as we do with our steak and seafood. Theres something for everyone, both in the price and the menu items. The old Turtle Club always had good service, but Evans, familiar with the expectations of Punta Gorda diners, plans on stepping it up a notch and is putting his staff through some rigorous training. I call it gracious hospitality, he said. I want to get away from just writing down orders and begin engaging the customers. We want to earn our customers business, and we are training our staff to be customer friendly. We want to create belief in the staff that this is a good place to work, and we want people who want to be a part of this. The Turtle Club is in the heart of downtowns dining district at 139 W. Marion Ave. Planned hours are 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and Sundays and from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Herald Page 8 Friday, October 17, 2014 Every worker participates with two of his clerks, the husband-and-wife team of Trina and Gene Coleman, using ply wood to build the ribbons and painting them pink. Eileen DiMase, a sales associate, has spearheaded the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign to spread the word about the disease and, for another, more personal reason. I do this in memory of my grandmother who had breast cancer, she said. According to the American Cancer Society, www.cancer.org, other than skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States. With dramatic improvements in cancer research, treatment and early de tection, millions of women are surviving breast cancer today. Bernier added, To the best of my knowledge, we have three active employees and one retiree who are breast cancer survivors. So its personal to me. It is so important to have that mammogram. It saves lives. Bernier and his workers at the East Marion Avenue ofce, and the branches in Murdock and Port Charlotte, have gone all out with decorating each branch with as many pink ribbons as possible to bring awareness to the dreaded disease. Bernier is hoping that customers will purchase Breast Cancer Awareness stamps instead of the Forever stamps to raise funds for research. Like the Forever stamps, the Breast Cancer Awareness stamps hold their face value. Since its inception in 1998, the stamp has raised nearly $79 million for research to battle breast cancer. To boost sales, post ofces throughout the country are engaged in a friendly competition to see which ofce can have the most sales, according to Bernier. Last year, Punta Gorda placed third in the nation and rst in the Suncoast District and it is currently on track to beat last years sales. Little Punta Gorda post ofce was third in the country, Bernier said. That is amazing, considering there are 403 post ofces and branches in the district and 31,000 facilities nationwide. In 2013, Bernier said they raised $30,777 by selling Breast Cancer Awareness stamps. In the rst week of October, they are 50 percent higher than the same time last year. And, as of Oct. 10, the Punta Gorda location was No. 1 in the country. We still have a ways to go, Bernier said, but that is really encouraging. Its all for a good cause. According to a press release, for every stamp purchased, 11 cents goes toward research. Seventy percent of the net amount is donated to the National Institutes of Health and the remaining 30 percent goes to the Medical Research Program at the Department of Defense. Every Wednesday in October, Bernier said they have a guest speaker on-site to answer customers questions. On Oct. 29, Missin Mammaries, the dragon boat team comprised of breast cancer survivors, will be on hand to discuss their stories. Bernier gives all the credit to his staff, especially the clerks, who ask each customer at their window if they want to purchase the stamps. He also acknowledges the community for their generosity in helping to showcase the dangers of breast cancer and, more importantly, how it can be cured with early detection. This town is amazing, he said. They always pull together whenever there is a challenge. Their generosity is overwhelming. Although pink is worn every day, Bernier and his employees go all-out on casual Fridays. I wear a pink sport coat Monday through Thursday and a pink golf shirt on Friday, he said. We even have one of our carriers wearing pink suspenders. Bernier said he is very proud of all his workers, especially the clerks who sell the stamps. They have a passion for it, he said. They put their heart and soul into it.PINKFROM PAGE 1 HERALD PHOTOS BY PAMELA STAIKThese pink ribbons, located outside the post oce,stand more than 6 feet tall and are made from plywood.

Light and shadows are essential, and you need to see them in person to capture them correctly, explained Sharon Yarbrough, who has been in charge of the program since 2013. At 8:30 a.m. every Monday, the group of anywhere from 10 to 20 artists meet at the announced location, bringing their own equipment and supplies. The artists can be seen painting in Punta Gorda, but also in various other locations. While they will chat for a moment with curious visitors, they do like to remain focused on their art. The groups schedule of locations is available at the VAC and also on the plein air programs website, www. vacpleinair.webs.com. On Oct. 20, the group will gather at Blind Pass Beach in Englewood, and an Oct. 27 session will gather at Ollies Pond on Avon Avenue in Port Charlotte.

Friday, October 17, 2014 Herald Page 11 Excerpts from 40 years ago Punta GordaDo you remember when?FROM OUR ARCHIVES Janine Smith 40 Years AgoJanine Smith writes about Punta Gordas historic past. Contact her at janinehs1@ comcast.net. The following excerpts are from the Daily Herald-News from Oct. 12, 1974, through Oct. 18, 1974:Train station a beautiful landmarkAmong the numerous beautiful, old buildings in Punta Gorda is the local train station. Its doors are now locked and its waiting rooms empty. The depot was built in 1928 by the Atlantic Coast Line.U.S. Cleveland named Good Guy of the month U.S. Cleveland, retired assistant postmaster for Charlotte County, received the Good Guy award for October from the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce at its monthly meeting this morning. Presenting the award was John Fugua, vice president of the chambers board of directors.Take free glaucoma testThanks to a dear friends and neighbors letter from the Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda Lions Clubs, we can report, with high praise, that the clubs will sponsor a glaucoma screening clinic on Oct. 26 at the Charlotte Cultural Center. The Lions are known for their outstanding work in sight preser vation work. We urge you to take advantage of this opportunity.Salute to newspaper carriersToday is the day set aside to honor newspaper carriers. To be a successful carrier takes a lot more than the desire to make some money. Daily Herald-News carriers must be on the job six days a week, rain or shine, hot or cold. Many of our carriers are schoolboys and girls, leaving their classes to deliver their papers. A newspaper route instills a strong business sense of responsibility. Without them, few of us would read a newspaper. We are proud of them and hope youll join in and salute them. Mary Beth Skaggs, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Donald E. Skaggs, Port Charlotte, has been a carrier since May of this year. She delivers about 95 papers in the Stillwater to Hepner area and also to the Presbyterian Villas. Skaggs attends St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School and is 10 years old. Chris McClellan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul F. McClellan of Northwest Lakemont, Port Charlotte, is a carrier in the Higgs Park area. He has been a carrier since June. McClellan is 11 years old and a student at Port Charlotte Junior High School. John Walsh, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Walsh of Edgehill, Port Charlotte, is 12 years old and delivers in the Edgehill to Croton Terrace area. Walsh carries about 60 papers each day. Donald H. Wik, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Wik of Key Lane, Port Charlotte, has been a carrier since December 1973. He delivers about 100 papers in the Kenyon to Starlite area. Wik attends St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School and is 12 years old. Bill Rominger is essential in the process through which your newspaper arrives on time. He has been employed by the Daily Herald-News for ve years. He delivers bundles of papers to the carriers and also tends the racks in which newspapers are placed.Barbee elected to board of directors for Marine BankGene Phinney, president of the Marine Bank of Punta Gorda, announced the election of Robert J. Barbee to the board of directors. Barbee is a longtime resident of Punta Gorda and one of the developers of Punta Gorda Isles, of which he is currently vice president. Barbee is also active in civic affairs and the Boy Scouts of America.Womans Club luncheon at Presbyterian ChurchThe Punta Gorda Womans Club met at the First United Presbyterian Church recently for a carry-in luncheon and meeting. Among those attending were Mrs. Vasco Peeples, president; Mrs. Kenneth McCleary, rst vice president; Mrs. Harrell, second vice president; Mrs. Frederick, recording secretary; Mrs. M.D. Craighead, treasurer; Mrs. Sylvia Gordon Cook, corresponding secretary; and Mrs. Tosie Hindman, supervisor of elections and the guest speaker.

Friday, October 17, 2014 Herald Page 13 Tarpon seniors cheer on athletesBy AMBER JELENCHS SENIORSpirit is a big deal at Charlotte High School. Through sports games, Blue Crew, pep rallies and many other events and activities, Charlotte High students and staff bleed blue and gold. One of the traditional spirit groups is the Spirit Senioritas Club, which consists of senior girls who choose senior male athletes to support throughout their season. New to the organization this year is a group of males who support the female athletes. Teacher Emily Klossner sponsors the club. She said, The point is for seniors to sponsor or support other senior athletes throughout the different sports. For example, the Grid Iron Girls who support the football players. Weve added this year boys supporting the girl sports, so it goes both ways. Spirit Senioritas is a club that ofcially gained its name about three years ago, but the idea has been at Charlotte High School for roughly 10 years. Grid Iron Girls, formerly known as GATA Girls, is the most popular section of the Spirit Senioritas. Its a fun way for seniors to show their spirit for their football team and favorite football player, said Hannah Ryals, a member and senior at CHS. It really brings up the football players moods before the big game. My football player is Nick Hoo, No. 79, and it made my day knowing he was happy with what I brought him for game day. With about 20 girls involved in the club right now, students make signs, bows, shirts and baked goods to give to their fellow senior football players. Students who do it all work, study and play ballBY ALEXIS WHITECHS JUNIORCharlotte High School is home to thousands of students, and many of them participate in extracurricular activities and sports. But some of these students, in addition to their studies and sports, also have jobs. Tiffany Roberts, for example, is a junior who manages a full day of school and is part of the Tarpon weightlifting and softball teams. Roberts also works an average of 20 hours a week. Sports are my passion, and, in order to do that, having a job is just another responsibility I must take on to do so, she said. Although she has a lot on her plate, Roberts always nds a way to get her homework nished and get a decent amount of sleep. This may sound like a very busy schedule for the average teen, but Roberts takes pride in all her work and does a great job on the eld. I truly believe you can do anything, no matter how busy it makes you, Roberts said. She isnt alone. Fellow junior Alexus Anders has the same inspiration to play softball and participate in weightlifting. However, not all of this was done here in Florida. Anders is from Arkansas and moved to Florida recently. As an employee at Chick-l-A, working three days a week for 4to 6-hour shifts, she still manages to juggle her schooling as well. Sometimes its overwhelming, but as long as you keep up with everything, its OK, Anders said. She added, I always make school my top priority. I normally will do some homework before work and nish what I wasnt able to do when I get home. Although her sports arent currently in season, Anders is used to working, studying and playing sports. I wake up, I go to school, I go home, I go to work and I get in bed and get ready for the next day, she said. Its interesting. Seniors prepare for next stepBy AMBER JELENCHS SENIORDuring the high school years, students spend time thinking about getting out of their parents house, living on their own and going to college. But do high school seniors actually put thought into the nancial aspect and detailed application process it takes to get accepted into colleges or universities? When it comes to these Charlotte High School seniors, it seems they have it gured out. Im going to go to (Florida Gulf Coast University) to major in marketing and minor in sports medicine. FGCU is really good at getting students internships to help us get ready for the job itself, said Morgan Stroup. She plans to attend FGCU for four years. She plans on working throughout college for her mothers real-estate agency, as she plans to get her real-estate license when she turns 18. Stroup is hoping to receive multiple scholarships, including a tuition wavier through FGCU and Bright Futures, which will hopefully cover most of her housing costs. She hopes to get the best grades she can just to be sure she earns a spot at FGCU. Adrian Roche is also a senior with big plans. I hope to make the most out of my senior year, have fun and graduate with good grades, Roche said. He plans to attend the University of Florida or Florida State University to study and major in biology. He is not too certain as to exactly what he would like to be, but knows he wants to go into the medical eld. Roche must go through four years of college then four years of medical school to get to the degree of biology he would like to obtain. He plans to live on campus and apply for jobs around his school to pay for housing. He is excited to be on his own, but says the bills do not seem too exciting.Tarpon students tell the news CONTRIBUTORSTarpon Page contributors are students at Charlotte High School.

Herald Page 14 Friday, October 17, 2014 Its coming down to the wire for the Charlotte High School Silver King Band to raise money for its trip of a lifetime. During the upcoming winter break, from Dec. 27 to Jan. 3, a group of 45 band members and 17 adults will travel to Rome to perform by special invitation in parades in Rome and Frascati. While there, they plan to visit Pompeii, the catacombs, Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Coliseum and the Sistine Chapel. Were going to try to visit Vatican City for the popes New Years blessing, too, said Kendra Dash, who is secretary/ treasurer of the band and mother to senior snare drummer Sean. But the band is still coming up short to pay for some of the trip. Since announcing the trip last year, the band has held cookie sales, a hypnotist show, a luncheon at Limoncellos, sold Chill Skins, played outside Publix stores and, most recently, held a concert to raise funds. We still need money to hire charter buses for transportation to and from the airport, for some unpaid meals and other incidentals, Dash said. And wed like to buy matching jackets so we can easily keep an eye on all the kids. The trip is expected to cost $3,570 per person, which includes airfare, hotel, most meals, taxes and fees. Students, their families and the chaperones are committed to pay most of the cost themselves with help from fundraising if possible. The invitation to Rome was the result of a former trip the band took to Washington, D.C., where they were awarded an award for Best Band. That prompted the mayor of Frescati to invite the Silver Kings to attend the Gold Festival and perform in the parade. CHS invited all other area schools to join them, but both Port Charlotte and Lemon Bay high schools have their own trips and activities planned. To rev up excitement during the fundraising year, the Silver Kings called themselves the Rock Rome band. Band boosters will be making sponsorship shirts for businesses and individuals that donate $100 or more by Oct. 24. Businesses will also receive an ad in the band program for the rest of the year at no charge. Businesses donating $100 will receive an ad the size of a business card; for $250 a quarter-page ad; for $500 a half-page ad; and $1,000 will get them a full-page ad. All will be named as sponsors on the T-shirts. Donations in any amount will be gratefully accepted, said Dash, and all are tax-deductible. Send donations to Band Rome Trip, 1250 Cooper St., Punta Gorda, FL 33950, Attention: Paul Montanari. For questions contact Montanari, the schools band director, at 941-575-5450, ext. 3402, or email him at paul.montanari@ yourcharlotteschools.net.Time marches on for band to raise funds for Italy trip PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG H H H SCHOOL BUZZ PUNTA GORDA Barbara Bean-Mellinger PGH CorrespondentBarbara Bean-Mellinger is a freelance writer.
