Running a business, including a newspaper, is full of challenges. Heres a column from Jim Gouvellis, who runs our papers in Polk County. Hazmat is here at the ofce, read the email. What on earth could Hazmat be doing there? We dont print anything at that facility any more and we dont have any ink, chemicals or anything that could cause a visit from Hazmat. Some generous soul had dumped two barrels of some type of chemical substance in the back of our Bartow ofce. A concerned citizen called the police, who then called the re department, who called in their Hazmat unit, who then called the state Department of Environmental Protection. Thats a whole lot of government for a couple of barrels of something or another. When I was nally able to travel to the ofce, everyone was gone. But there was already police tape surrounding the back parking lot. That parking lot is semi-secluded from Main Street and the other sur rounding roads, so it probably was attractive to the very considerate person who decided to get rid of their chemical by dumping it off their truck. The re department said we could expect a visit from the DEP to explain what our options were. A couple of days later the DEP showed up and surveyed the situation and told us that this type of thing was more common than you think. Probably someone very close by who wanted to get rid of it, they explained. Someone decides it is cheaper to illegally dump their waste than do the right thing and dispose of it properly. Bartow Police Chief Joe Hall said his department is investigating the dumping and various sources are providing his investigators with information. There is a security camera on the back of one of the businesses that fronts Main Street, but the merchant there said it wasnt working. The DEP representative who visited with us, Jamie Arico, was very helpful and told us how to deal with the situation responsibly. The barrels didnt have much left in them and the spill wasnt much more than a few gallons, but we had to contact a qualied environmental rm to deal with the situation. State regs dictate that you have to have the substance tested, the soil surrounding the spill has to be dug up and removed and the barrels have to be removed and disposed of in a responsible manner. Just a few gallons of waste oil wound up costing us thousands of dollars. When dealing with the spill, we decided we needed to deal with the fact that several folks have decided to use our back parking lot as if it were their own. After the spill, we noticed that a car had been parked there for a long time. Next to the car was an old tire that someone had left next to it. No one on the block claimed the car as their own, but when I let it be known it was going to be towed, it mysteriously disappeared within a couple of hours. Now, for obvious reasons, we have to make sure no one is using that parking lot. We now have the additional cost of erecting signs telling people that the parking lot is private property and they cant park their cars or trucks there. Thank you, mystery dumper.

A 50-year-old man who was watching the bird, named Chuckles, was seriously injured and own to Lee Memorial Hospital after he was knocked unconscious while trying to rescue it from the tree.PUNTA GORDA When Chuckles escaped out the door Wednesday, pet-sitter Kenny Corley quickly chased after the young parrot. The two soon found themselves about 30 feet high, up a large tree. Though Chuckles was a little more in his element, the situation was no laughing matter for anyone involved. After hearing the branches below him start to crack, Corley, 50, called 911 at 11:13 a.m. The call went dead, said Charlotte County Fire/EMS spokeswoman Dee Hawkins-Garland. The patient had fallen. Rescuers rushed to the scene on Elliott Street and found Corley had been knocked unconscious and was stuck in the trees thick foliage, two stories above CHARLOTTE HARBOR Few details were unveiled in an incident report released Wednesday by the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce about this weeks fatal shooting at Charlotte Harbor RV Park. Residents at the trailer park were still looking for answers about why two people ended up dead Tuesday in their tight-knit community. Owner Kisha Tallman said shes lived there for 18 years and seen her share of problems among residents. But there were no issues at all, she said, at the trailer where a tense standoff with author ities ended with two bodies being found Tuesday. Neighbors claim a man lived there with his wife, girlfriend and four children. They also said he had a large gun collection.

Though no vote was taken during the commission workshop Tuesday afternoon, only Mayor Jim Blucher and Commissioner Tom Jones wanted to set up a fund that would receive annual payments of $275,000 over a number of years. The city has spent a total of $5.5 million on Warm Mineral Springs: $2.75 million during the joint purchase with the county in 2010, and $2.75 million last month buying out the countys half of the property.

Featured EventsPAID ADVERTISEMENTS suggested setting up a special fund to repay the money used to purchase the Springs during a commission meeting last week. It really is a prerogative, and whether you think those funds should go back or not. If I have a temperature from yall that you dont want to do this, then I dont plan on bringing an agenda item to you, Lewis said. Blucher immediately said he believed repaying the money would be the right thing to do. I think the money does need to be paid back it can be a long-term process. If we dont set it up, then itll never be paid back. Its taxpayers dollars. Yes (the Springs) is economic development, but economic development money should always come back, he said. What weve got is a tourist attraction. I would say that a large portion of the city of North Port do not use the Springs. I wish they would, but theyre not and I dont think we can forget that segment of our citizens group. The commission made a transaction. ... I think a small portion of that needs to go back so we can track it. Vice Mayor Rhonda DiFranco asked what revenues the Springs has brought in as of Tuesday. How much revenue was made as far as operating expenses when it was operated with the county? $180,000 (to) $200,000, Lewis replied. If youre looking at it as a business then it looks red, if youre looking as it as a community investment. Commissioner Linda Yates worried about moving a set amount of money into a specied fund each year and was vocal against any form of a loan to repay the money. When asked for an answer on whether she wanted to repay the funds, Yates hesitated. Surtax is money from sales tax from the city and is used in projects (the) same thing with the escheated (lot) fund. And (money) was used for public use. (The Springs) belongs to the public. It has potential to evolve and become even better, she said. Im very condent this community will see that $5.5 million back within 10 years. Its all in how you want to keep track of it. My only consideration with that is that it may tie us down in a sense of creating obligation where you have to pay $275,000 a year. ... What if one year you have only $235,000? Lewis said there was no legal requirement to establish a fund. If you view that $2.75 million as a community investment, and you dont expect it to be paid back, then dont do a loan, but it will be very difcult for people sitting in your seats ve, 10 years from now to justify paying it back. A future commission is going to do whatever it wants to do anyway, he said. Yates asked if the decision on Tuesday would affect a future establishment of some type of Springs fund. Lewis said it wouldnt, but the money would take at least ve to six years to accrue before any type of payback could begin anyway. So what were saying is Well pay you back, taxpayers, we just dont know when, DiFranco said. Email: sgholar@sun-herald.comSPRINGSFROM PAGE 1voting kicked off Monday. An early voting location will be within 3 miles of this event, so be prepared to join supporters at the polls to cast your vote after the event concludes, said an online announcement for the event. Local Democratic leaders declined comment on the visit. As the race for Florida governor enters the home stretch, Scott and Democratic opponent Charlie Crist are in a dead heat. In the latest survey from Quinnipiac University, both men are deadlocked with just 42 percent of the vote in a race that is as nasty as it is close. More than a million Floridians have already cast mail-in absentee ballots and early in-person ballots ahead of the Nov. 4 election, with registered Republicans outvoting Democrats 48-35 percent. In Charlotte County, voters have been good to Scott. In the 2010 general election, Scott garnered more than 53 percent of the vote in his rst bid for ofce, overtaking Democratic candidate Alex Sink. The last visit Scott made to Charlotte County was in May to promote economic development.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comSCOTTFROM PAGE 1 | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSAMVETS 312 surf and turf benefitAMVETS Post 312 will hold a surf and turf fundraising dinner from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 1.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, October 23, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS SARASOTA COUNTY A year after he took the reins from former County Administrator Randall Reid, current administrator Tom Harmer received nearly universal praise for his work from commissioners. Although Harmer has only been serving ofcially in the role since February he rst acted as interim county manager after Reid was dismissed last October commissioners agreed Harmer implemented a much-needed course cor rection for the administration, and boosted employee morale in the process. To me, its caused more productivity and a lot more respect amongst the team, said Commissioner Carolyn Mason. It equals a great organization and Im really grateful for the leadership. Reid was ousted Oct. 23 last year during a performance evaluation, as county commissioners cited morale, budget concerns and the mishandling of a case involving a former county executive as reasons to terminate Reids contract without cause. Harmer was immediately given the title of interim administrator, but was given the job permanently in February of this year. Harmers rst annual review of his performance was the opposite of Reids last year, and commissioners spoke highly of the work he did to balance an administration in ux after Reids dismissal. Harmer continues to be a calming presence, commissioners agreed, especially to the countys 2,190 employ ees, a gure that does not include the Sheriffs Ofce and other constitutional ofces. They also lauded Harmers detailed budget process, which spanned months and walked commissioners through every step of the countys $1 billion operating budget. To see such a dramatic turnaround in one year is extremely impressive to me, said Commissioner Christine Robinson. The budget affects everything and without a strong budget we dont have a strong organization. Like the rest of the commissioners, Joe Barbetta gave Harmer nearly all As on his report card, the evaluation which governs his performance in a number of areas including stafng, reporting and citizen relations among others. Barbetta said his evaluation of Harmer compared to other administrators was like night and day. My only concern is I dont have more time to serve with him added Barbetta, whose term is set to expire in November. Commissioners unanimously voted to start contract negotiations with Harmer, whose annual salary is $180,000 plus benets. In other county news, commissioners also unanimously agreed to issuing $17.9 million worth of revenue notes to help fund a complete overhaul of the countys 800 megahertz emergency communication system, a system that will eventually link emergency communications across several counties. Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comHarmer gets good marks in reviewBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER ROTONDA Charlotte County Commission Chairman Ken Doherty appreciates the Southwest Florida Water Management Districts restoration of 250 acres along Coral Creek in western Charlotte County. The Coral Creek system like many others in the state was a victim of the development activities that were allowed prior to the implementation of Floridas environmental permitting rules and regulations in the 1980s, Doherty said at an ofcial dedication of the water district commonly known as Swiftmud restoration project Wednesday. As an engineer who has worked in Florida since the 1970s, Doherty recalled how developers didnt have to store and treat stormwater before it was discharged into natural drainage systems. Unfortunately, he said, some older developments still discharge heavily polluted water. Besides removing exotic and other vegetation, the project included restoration of a ltering marsh, creation of wetlands and habitat restoration. Swiftmud Executive Director Robert Beltran and Swiftmud governing board member Michael Moran described the project as a partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Charlotte County, Bonesh and Tarpon Trust, and others. We cannot do this alone, Moran said. This project is a great example of where we can work together and preserve natu ral lands for generations to come. Phase II is currently 30 percent complete in its design. Phase II will include the restoration of 300 acres of freshwater and estuarine wetland enhancement and exotic vegetation removal. A primary focus for Phase II is the creation of, and enhancement of, marine habitat for juvenile tarpon and snook. (Swiftmud) has allowed us to implement experimental design in the restoration project, said Phil Stevens, manger of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission eld laboratory for Charlotte Harbor. He described the project as improving the juvenile tarpon habitat on relic creeks, half-dug canals. As a nerdy scientist, this is a very unique oppor tunity, Stevens quipped. We will learn a lot about snook and juvenile tarpon habitats. Swiftmud senior environmental scientist Stephanie Powers, who earned several kudos for her oversight of the Coral Creek restoration project, is already working with the Lemon Bay Conservancy to improve the juvenile tarpon habitat on Lemon Creek in its Wildlife Preserve.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comCoral Creek restoration dedicatedBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER SUN PHOTO BY STEVE REILLYSouthwest Florida Water Management District, known as Swiftmud, and other ocials celebrate the restoration of 250 acres along Coral Creek.

In the end, a man and a woman were killed, and another woman was seriously injured. Ofcials still wouldnt conrm who shot whom, or release any names. Tallman said the tenants had been there for seven or eight months. I dont know any thing else, she said. Though two were killed and one injured, the situation could have been even worse. The sheriffs SWAT team was able to rescue four children and the injured woman by moving in with a recently acquired armored vehicle. (Tuesday) was the first situation it was used in for the purpose we got it to carry and extract people, said sheriffs spokeswoman Debbie Bowe. The 18-ton MineResistant Ambush Protected vehicle was obtained from the military as part of a government surplus program. Though its been used to transport SWAT members before, it hadnt yet been used in a rescue. When it drove into that park to get those people, it shows you why we got it, Bowe said. One bit of new information in the initial incident report is that deputies were dispatched to the trailer park at 5:24 a.m., not 6 a.m. as previously reported. Authorities remained at the incident location Wednesday, removing guns from the trailer and collecting other evidence. Through an open trailer door, blood could be seen on what appeared to be sheets. Investigators requested that the media not photograph the crime scene. Residents said the people who lived in the trailer mostly kept to themselves. Since the beginning of the year, the Sheriffs Office has been dispatched 31 times to the RV park, where about 25 old campers or units are scattered about the lot. Fire/EMS has been there nine times, according to a check of public records by the Sun .Email: akreger@sun-herald.comFATALFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERInvestigators remained at Charlotte Harbor RV Park Wednesday, still collecting evidence from a fatal shooting the day before. the ground. Fire/EMS personnel reached Corley with a ladder truck, and then a system of levers and pulleys was used to lower him down in a harness. Though Corley regained consciousness, he was in serious, but stable condi tion when he was own to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers, HawkinsGarland said. Corley remained in the ER Wednesday afternoon. He had brought in some groceries and then was playing with the two dogs in the back room, said Roland Ebersole, one of Corleys roommates. That bird was just following him around, and the door was opened. Chuckles is a 6-monthold green Amazon parrot that belongs to a third roommate, who was away in California, Ebersole said. He bites, I dont think it likes me, Ebersole said. So, (Corley) takes care of it. After Corley was rescued Wednesday, authorities turned their attention to rescuing the screaming bird. I didnt think he was going to come to me, said reghter/EMT Scott Humphreville, who was tasked with climbing the tree with bird treats to lure in Chuckles. But when he saw the treats, he started moving. And I just kept talking to him. A few nibbled ngers later, the parrot was returned to his cage. Its denitely the rst time Ive been a part of anything like that, Humphreville said. Authorities said the best thing for people to do if a loose pet gets in a pinch is to call the professionals. For someone trying to make an attempt to rescue an animal at a high or difcult angle, wed encourage them to call the authorities, Hawkins-Garland said. Without the need for an ambulance or medical treatment, the service would be free. Hawkins-Garland said the agencys most notable bird call in recent memory came a little more than a year ago on State Road 776. An osprey had gotten stuck in a billboard. That bird also was successfully rescued.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comPARROTFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERCharlotte County reghter Scott Humphreville (left) climbed up into the tree after the human was rescued and lured the parrot to him using bird treats.

Pedersen, 89, provided 14 years of service to the city before retiring in 1989 serving as a receptionist before being appointed to the city clerk position. When Pedersen became city clerk in 1976, she was one of only two women who were city clerical workers. When she retired, the North Port Times published an article honoring the years of work Pedersen gave to the city, bidding her a fond farewell. I think that anytime you lose anyone with the amount of experience and time in the city that she has, you lose a lot, James W. Pierce, city manager at the time, said. Pedersen said her favorite part about working for the city was all the people she met. I think Im going to miss meeting with the public the most, she said in the 1989 article. Ive met so many nice people. In the article, Pedersen said she always concentrated on events and the positive aspects of her job as the citys unofficial historian and chief records-keeper. The elections are always interesting. There is a lot of work involved and you can never predict the outcome, she said. And the people have been good; no matter what (side) they were on theyve always knew I had a job to do and that I was impartial. Pedersen lived in North Port until 10 years ago when complications from dementia forced her to move to Palm Bay, so she could be closer to her family. Linda Silvestrei, Pedersens niece, said she mostly lived by herself until she fell and broke her hip in January. Silvestrei said her aunt kept busy in retirement. She liked her bingo every Friday night, and she always enjoyed taking care of her cats, Silvestrei said. Pedersen was born Nov. 4, 1924, and she is survived by her sister, Doris Hayden, and niece.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS ENGLEWOOD A local man is accused of driving around in an SUV that was outfitted to resemble a police car, according to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office. Shane Michael Marquette, 29, was driving a Chevrolet Tahoe at 1:45 a.m. Monday when he was pulled over at the corner of Placida Road and Kentucky Avenue. He was given a warning for failure to dim lights. Authorities found in the SUV a police scanner, a police radio, a police radar unit, a microphone and PA system, multiple LED lights mounted to the front and rear windows, strobe lights on the grill, a multi-function flash control box for blue and red strobe lights in the rear and a working siren. In addition, there was reportedly some mar ijuana and a smoking pipe in the vehicle. Marquette, of the 2800 block of Bourbon Street in Englewood, said the SUV wasnt his, but deputies found mail and other identifying documents in the vehicle. He was arrested and charged with driving without registration, driving without insur ance, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and using certain prohibited lights.

Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is determined by the court system. SARASOTA Teachers in the Sarasota County School District will soon be able to track students academic history thanks to an integrated Local Instructional Improvement System. Earlier this week, during a workshop, School Board members received an update on the system from Denise Cantalupo, director of the districts Research, Assessment & Evaluation/ School Improvement/ Grants department. She said the main purpose of LIIS is to make teachers lives easier. Its a teacher tool designed to improve instruction, she said of the system, which links curriculum, assessment, professional development, instruction and evaluation. Web-based, LIIS can be accessed while a teacher is at school, from their home computer, or from a tablet or smartphone. Features of the system will allow teachers to study trends in a students achievement. Teachers can see (a students) growth over time and scores over the years, then develop resources for improvement, Cantalupo said. With an assessment detail report, they can go back ve years by student or teacher. She added that a students achievement trail will be limited to their tenure in Sarasota County schools, but the digital record will advance with a student as they progress from elementary school then to middle and high school. Cantalupo also told the board that LIIS will generate early warning reports to help teachers identify which students are at risk of not moving up a grade by using an algorithm to take into account GPA, tests, where they might be expected to score, and even behavior referrals. And with the formative assessment, a teacher can get a snapshot after every benchmark test, she continued. The detailed report shows how students performed on each standard tested. Its great for re-teaching. ... Were also able to see, as we build tests, what items are or are not working and particular items students may not be getting right. Previously, teachers had to resort to a number of different programs, but LIIS is integrated and communicates with other systems. Denise had a vision. ... She was suggesting we create our own system, Superintendent Lori White said, adding district staff worked with several groups, including one from Florida State University, to gure out what the program would need to look like. We used Race to the Top dollars. We wanted to invest in something that could be sustained in the future. A total of $7 million in Race to the Top money was awarded to the state in 2009 by the U.S. Department of Education, with $350 million going directly to school districts based on their number of Title I schools. Sarasota Countys allocation was about $3.5 million, which has funded professional development and instructional strategies for the new state standards. Its great that were using Race to the Top dollars. So often those dollars disappear. (This investment) will continue to pay dividends after those dollars are gone, Board member Shirley Brown said. Board member Caroline Zucker was also pleased. Weve taken some heat for taking Race to the Top money. This is the rst time Ive heard something concrete that the community can appreciate, she said. I see this as a seamless system to really follow the child.Email: annek@sun-herald.comComputer system to track student learningBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER In the CLASSIFIEDS!

I hope you will all follow the example set by my friend and send back your absentee ballot today, or vote early or get to the polls on Nov. 4. Show your pride as an American and vote.Laurie Druyor Punta GordaEditor: First of all, I urge all registered voters to get out and vote, either during early voting or Tuesday, Nov. 4. Regardless of your political affiliation, let your voice be heard, as it is so important. I also hope that you will vote for Stephen R. Deutsch for Charlotte County commissioner. Commissioner Deutsch has been on the commission for the past four years and has done an exceptional job. You will not find a more dedicated commissioner who only wants the best for the people of Charlotte County. He is extremely knowledgeable and qualified to do the best job possible. When casting your vote, I ask you to please cast it for Stephen R. Deutsch for Charlotte County commissioner.Marcia James Port CharlotteEditor: Just an idea The media, Charlie Crist and Rick Scott would have us believe that we have two choices for governor. According to each of them, electing the other be would be electing a crook. The Libertarian candidate, Adrian Wyllie, has been mentioned only because he has protested not being heard. I have researched Floridas governor candidates on the Internet. There are nine including NPAs and write-ins as well as a Libertarian, a Republican and a Democrat. I would like to hear them all, as we were able to in the early part of the presidential elections. Since big money has decided that we only have two candidates, it is up to us to research on our own and discover whose course is the one we want our state to follow. If we make a mistake in our voting, we can correct our mistake in the next election (thank you, Founding Fathers). Our power is in the ballot box. This is just an idea: Find the websites of all the candidates, research the choices, and vote your conscience, but for sure vote.Carol Hollomon Rotonda WestEditor: On the ballot next month is the question of whether or not marijuana should be legally available in Florida. Proponents argue that it is medically benecial to some people. Since it is a drug, it, or the benecial elements therein, should be made available only by prescription. The evil results of making it widely available have been clearly demonstrated in those states that have already embarked on this experiment. Vote no on this amendment. The polls show that the Republicans should take enough Senate seats to control the Senate for the next two years. This is very important so that the Congress can get back to work getting necessary legislation done: passing a budget, repairing immigration law, adjusting Obamacare so that it works instead of injuring people, etc. In 2012 there were also high hopes of solving some of these problems by replacing the president. But the Democrats got out the vote and the Republicans didnt. We have to get out and vote. We have to take over the Senate. The alternative is two more years of important nations business not getting done because of the obstruction of Harry Reid. I sincerely hope that Republican Party leaders are working very hard to get out the vote. I hear from the national party and sometimes from the Florida party asking for money. I never hear from the local party at all. That doesnt bode well for getting out the vote.Dave Robertson Punta GordaEditor: David Dunn-Rankins account of the fan kerfufe at the recent Scott-Crist debate was a ne insight into the tactics of Charlie Crist. Sure, Crist was politically nimble and he pulled off a gotcha on a gullible Rick Scott. And then Dunn-Rankin says Crist glibly looked straight into the camera and lied about knowing about the fan. Oh boy, that Charlie is such a funny guy. But Charlie the opportunist party changer, the Ill say anything while running for high ofce nabob, reveals himself to be the trickster that many Floridians detect in the man. I think he should be called Slick Charlie, borrowing a title from another slick polit ico with a knack for looking you in the eye and lying, Slick Willie.Cornelius OConnell North PortEditor: I suppose you could call this a fan letter. The difference between electric and electronic devices is that electric devices are generally simpler and essentially allow electrons to manipulate energy, for example to light a ashlight or turn a fan. An electronic device generally has the current pass through a semiconductor or transistor in order to manipulate it, for example if a fan had a heat sensor to shut off the device after reaching a certain temperature. All electronic devices are electric, but not all electric devices are electronic. The famous fan that Charlie Christ used appeared to be a simple on-or-off electric device, thus well within the parameters of the debate guidelines regarding the prohibition on electronic devices. Charlie Crist appeared to be a man who had a simple and practical solution to a problem. Scott, on the other hand being a typical Republican, said, No.Tom Scott Deep CreekEditor: The tax is one cent on the dollar for many purchases. It is not a new tax or a 17 percent tax increase. The six-year extension includes essential items that will require property tax funding if he extension fails. There are quality of life projects that keep us competitive with neighboring communities to attract new businesses, residents and visitors while enriching our lives. Many of these projects will be differed or abandoned if the referendum fails. The radio replacement proposal is probably the least understood. This is a signicant upgrade and the frequency relocation required by the federal government and cannot be deferred. Questions have been asked why we are building a large new library in the digital age of eBooks and Internet. This shift in future use is recognized and there are plans for the new library to change to accommodate future demands. The Pathways and Harborwalk are our community signature not only for Punta Gorda but Charlotte Harbor. An approved and funded project will link the north side of the harbor to the Punta Gorda system to provide a unied safe biking, walking and jogging system along the Peace River and Charlotte Harbor. Approval of the extension will boost the cent on the dollar to $120 million over the next six years. Please keep the community spirit shown after Charley alive to make Charlotte County the best affordable place in Southwest Florida to live and play. Vote yes on the extension.Ray Rose Punta GordaEditor: Only a madman would gamble with our lives, our childrens lives and the entire American economy. Why would President Obama play Russian roulette with the future of our country? Its a gamble no sane leader would take. The life and death issue is Ebola. Mr. President, its time to tell the truth about Ebola. It is far easier to become infected than doctors or health experts are telling us. We are told becoming infected is an extremely remote possibility. Really? An NBC cameraman got Ebola without ever touching a sick patient or A yes vote for conservationIn 1990, as forecasts warned that Floridas spiraling population threatened 3 million acres of critical environmental lands, Gov. Bob Martinez launched Preservation 2000. Nearly a decade later, it mor phed into Florida Forever, an act signed into law by Gov. Jeb Bush. These programs set up state trust funds to buy and preserve sensitive forests, wetlands and shorelines. The aim was to protect drinking water supplies, improve water quality, preserve wildlife habitat and fund management of state parks and recreation lands. Through Florida Forever alone, approximately $300 million was set aside annually from taxes imposed on real estate transactions. This was supplemented by $100 million from another designated trust fund. The programs worked. In all, the state has pur chased 2.5 million acres since the early 1990s. The $2.89 billion spent by Florida Forever in 15 years was used for 818 archaeological sites, 696,240 acres of ecological greenways, nearly 1.2 million acres of habitat conservation areas, more than 1 million acres of oodplains and shoreline, 305,590 acres of wetlands and 351,180 acres of forest. Enough? Hardly. The population boom hasnt stopped. The development pressure will not abate. Florida will soon become the third largest state, with roughly 19 million people. Twenty years from now, that figure is expected to hit 26 million. Amendment 1 on the November ballot the Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative would ensure funding for environmentally significant land acquisition for the next 20 years by using 33 percent of annual net revenues raised through documentary taxes the fees charged on real estate transactions. That revenue source has long been used for conservation. But not recently. When the Great Recession forced budget cuts, money from land preservation trust funds were diverted for other uses, primarily road construction. In the past four years, only $29 million has been spent on Florida Forever projects. Not nearly enough. The passage of Amendment 1 would ensure an appropriate stream of funding for the next two decades somewhere in the range of $19 billion, according to estimates. It would prevent trust fund raids by the Legislature based on expediency something recent history suggests is necessary. Most important is the long-term commitment to conservation. In order to pass, the measure will need approval of 60 percent of voters. We believe the support is there. In both Sarasota and Charlotte counties, voters have passed local land preservation measures by wide margins and those call for the imposition of additional property taxes. This amendment does not. Conservation is not a luxury. Clean water, a healthy wildlife population, public access to waterways, open land and the Everglades is key to Floridas natural appeal. As our population grows, so should our commitment to a healthy environment. The Sun recommends a yes vote on Amendment 1. entering the room of an Ebola victim. A nurse in Dallas got Ebola while wearing heavy protective gear. More than 200 doctors and nurses in Africa are dead despite wearing protec tive gear, washing hands with bleach and knowing exactly what they were dealing with. This can be passed onto others just using money, shopping cart handles, gas pumps, etc. The list is endless. Our southern border is wide open and you have not stopped ights that could bring death and disaster, ending America as we know it. It is time to impeach this man and vote out his followers before he has us all killed. Vote! Vote! Vote!Harold Muxlow Sr. North Port

The Sun /Thursday, October 23, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 9 Monica Lewinsky is trying to make lemonade out of 16-year-old lemons. Good for her, and good, ultimately, for us. Not so good, of course, for Hillary Clintons nascent presidential campaign, but not fatal either. Lewinskys decision to re-emerge as a public figure, this time committed to alleviating the scourge of cyber-bully ing, is awkward. Still, it is inevitable, even without Lewinsky front and center, that Bill Clintons deplorable conduct in office will come up as a topic during his wifes campaign, assuming she gets to the general election this time. The earlier its talked about, the more old-newsy the whole mess will seem by the time Clintons opponents try to make it relevant. In the meantime, Lewinsky is making an important point about the role of the Internet and accompanying modern technology as an accelerant in the destruction of personal reputation and the associated harm caused by online exposure. Overnight, I went from being a completely private figure to a publicly humiliated one. I was Patient Zero, Lewinsky said in a speech Monday to Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit in Philadelphia. The first person to have their reputation completely destroyed worldwide via the Internet. Lewinskys Patient Zero claim is more than a little overblown. Even without the medium of the Internet, without the Drudge Report to break the news on the Web or dial-up connections to let readers access the Starr report in all its detail, the story would have emerged, and it would have been huge. Somehow, political and personal lives had collided overnight to create what was, in hindsight, the first modern political scandal, with all the attendant satellite trucks and saturation coverage and hourly turns in the nar rative that Kafka himself could not have dreamed up, Bai writes in his book All the Truth Is Out: The Week Politics Went Tabloid. In truth, politics has always had its tabloid aspect. Grover Clevelands critics chanted Ma, ma, wheres my pa? refer ring to an illegitimate child, during the 1884 presidential campaign. And reputations have always been susceptible to overnight ruin. But Lewinsky is also correct when she says that the experience of shame and humiliation online is different than offline. There is no way to wrap your mind around where the humiliation ends there are no borders. She described how it felt to watch yourself or your name and likeness be ripped apart online. For me, that was every day in 1998. There was a rotation of worsening name-calling and descriptions of me. I would go online, read in a paper or see on TV people referring to me as: tramp, slut, whore, tart, bimbo, floozy, even spy. The New York Posts Page Six took to calling me, almost daily, the Portly Pepperpot. I was shattered. Lewinsky says she was moved to come forward by the experience of Rutgers freshman Tyler Clementi, who committed suicide after his roommate secretly taped and streamed video of Clementi kissing another man. Having survived myself, what I want to do now is help other victims of the shame game survive too, Lewinsky said. What we need is a radical change in attitudes on the Internet, mobile platforms and in the society of which they are a part. Indeed, the response to Lewinskys speech and to her decision, either courageous or foolhardy, to join Twitter only serves to under score the ugliness she decries. #HereWeGo, Lewinsky wrote in her maiden tweet, and so the twitterverse did, in all its predictable coarseness. If Lewinskys solution to this compassion decit feels unformed well, shes not the only one who is struggling with how to re-civilize society. Simply going public may be Lewinskys greatest service. A parent trying to comfort a teenager victimized by cyberbullies can point to Lewinsky and say: If she can survive, so can you. Ruth Marcus is a columnist for The Washington Post. Readers may reach her at marcusr@washpost.com.Taking lessons from Patient Zero Ruth Marcus How will the 2014 race for Florida governor conclude? At this point, its anyones guess. The polls are close and fluctuate a point or two in either direction either toward Republican Gov. Rick Scott or toward former Gov. Charlie Crist, the Democratic candidate. Political pundits say its too close to call. Momentum seems to shift, but not for long. Voters are turned off by the storm of ads mostly negative. Conventional wisdom suggests that turnout would be low in a non-presidential year with no U.S. Senate race at the top of the ticket and very few competitive races particularly statewide on the ballot. However, absentee voting has already hit a million ballots returned, with a higher percentage coming from voters registered Republican. Early voting has also started, with numbers that look low compared to absentee voting, but those percentages in larger, heavily Democratic counties are actually up significantly. Historically, absentee voting benefits Republican candidates, while early in-person voting favors Democratic candidates. So can we glean any thing from these numbers? The professional number crunchers will try to extrapolate who is ahead at this point and what it means as the voting deadline of Nov. 4 arrives. Expect the Scott camp to boast about early voting. We can assume with some certainty that the majority of Republican absentee voters will vote for Scott, the Republican incumbent, but we dont know how many will vote for Crist, who served previously as a Republican, or Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie. Some disgusted voters might even under vote or leave that race blank. Conversely, while assuming most Democratic absentee voters will cast their vote for Crist, we dont know how many will support Scott, Wyllie or none of the above. Crist needs to keep the Republican lead in returned absentee ballots to single digits. Anything less than 10 percent would be problematic for Scott unless early in-person voting shifts in his favor. Fearing this, the Scott camp is pushing Republicans to vote early but that may be a zero-sum game, which serves only to rearrange when or how his supporters vote. Over the past few election cycles, Gov. Scott and the Republican-controlled Florida Legislature have tried to limit in-person early voting. One possible reason? It seems to heavily favor Democrats. Crist, on the other hand, as a Republican governor, expanded early-voting hours to accommodate the long lines of voters waiting to cast a vote. Republican Party leaders were not pleased. Gov. Scott and the Legislature had to relent partially after the embarrassment of national news stories showing waiting lines wrapped around polling places during the 2012 election. Turnout was par ticularly high among African-American early voters. These voters might have been reacting to the perception that the state was trying to suppress their vote. Church pastors were effective in turning these election law changes into an opportunity. Dubbed Souls to the Polls, church members were encouraged to vote in mass on the last Sunday of early voting. They answered the call. What remains to be seen is whether minority voters will turn out for in-person early voting in large numbers this year without President Obama at the top of the ticket and with Scott and the Legislature relenting, for the time being, on early-voting changes and voter purges. Weekend early voting will be very telling. Most of these voters use the weekend, when theyre not working, to cast their ballot. We know that older white voters are more disciplined about voting and tend to vote absentee or on Election Day. They need less enticement to vote. Retirees are the best voters a big plus for the Scott campaign. The youth and minority vote is less reliable. While these are the voters Crist needs, his campaign will have to work harder to get them out. Will a focus on their issues and a ground game do it? Despite the campaign devolving into personal character assassination, there are very distinct policy differences that should matter to these key voters: Minimum wage increase to $10.10 Scott opposes and Crist supports. Medicaid expansion Scott opposes and Crist supports. Same-sex marriage Scott opposes and Crist supports. Medical marijuana Scott opposes and Crist supports. Climate change Scott denies it is manmade while Crist wants to address it. High-stakes testing Scott supports and Crist wants to reduce. Scott has modified his views on in-state tuition for undocumented immigrants and dropped his 2010 campaign promise to enact an Arizona-style immigration law in an effort to win more of the Hispanic vote a key constituency in this too close to call race. The question is turnout not so much how many, but who. Paula Dockery is a former state senator from Polk County and a columnist for Florida Voices, the state opinion page.

Our Town Page 10 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, October 23, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT One Halloween house in North Port has attracted both complaints from neighbors and support from other residents for the homes front-yard display of horrors. The home, at 1842 Allegheny Lane off South Chamberlain Boulevard, features a life-size figure hanging from a gallows and another figure sitting in an electric chair both positioned inside a makeshift fence representing a graveyard with a sign that reads EST. 1842. On the out er edges of the fence, a zombie appears to be climbing up from his grave. Lonnie Bauler, the owner of the house, said he has been decorating his home for the past eight years and there have never been any complaints. Bauler said each year he hosts a Halloween party, and the decorations outside of his home continue to grow. The cemetery scene outside his house this year was handmade completely by Bauler. Photos of Baulers home were posted to the North Port Sun s Facebook page, and a majority of the comments from Facebook users showed support for Baulers unique Halloween scene. What part of this is bad? Tom Orselli asked. Its awesome, Val Melton said. Most dont complain about nativity scenes at Christmas or inflatable bunnies at Easter. Why complain about Halloween? After only 24 hours on Facebook, the photos had more than 300 likes and 650 comments from social media users calling the scene festive and creative. Leave it up year round and call it a no trespassing sign, Bob Smith said. If its private property and not deed-restricted, then get over it, Sharon Fleming Ness said. A few concerned people said it might be too scary for kids and could give them the wrong message. A little over the top for the children, Barbara Meagher said. Sara Marie Wilson said she lives just two streets away and her children, ages 8 and 4, beg her to drive by it on their way home. Many Facebook users said they will be driving their kids down that street to show them the display. People said that if someone has a problem with it, then they can choose an alternate route to take for the rest of the month, or until its taken down. Bauler commented on the post, thanking people for their support, and explaining his intentions for the display. Thanks to all that support the decorations at my home this year. Its all in good fun, and I had no intentions in offending anyone, he said. I only wish I had nished putting everything out before they took the pictures.

Starting Monday, travelers who were in Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea will be required to take their temperature daily and report to local health ofcials in the U.S. for three weeks, the maximum period after exposure to Ebola in which symptoms can appear. Travelers will be asked to provide contact information and may be subject to travel restrictions, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. They also will be given kits at the airport where they arrive, including a thermometer, a log book for recording temperatures and information on identifying potential Ebola symptoms. If a traveler does not check in with the local health department, authorities will take immediate steps to nd the person, according to the CDC. This is another step to protect families, communities and health care workers from Ebola, Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the CDC, said Wednesday. What we are doing is putting in multiple levels of checks. The step is the latest by the Obama administration as it tries to ease public concern and combat criticism that it was slow to respond to the virus threat. Federal ofcials already are trying to screen the 150 or so people a day who come to the U.S. from the three West African countries. At the airports where passengers from those countries are per mitted to arrive in Atlanta, Chicago, Washington, New York and Newark, N.J. ofcials are taking the travelers temperatures and looking for other possible Ebola symptoms, including vomiting, headaches, muscle aches and diarrhea. The vast majority of travelers havent shown symptoms, although several people have been taken to hospitals.

MONITOR | 4 ST. LOUIS Michael Browns ofcial autopsy shows the 18-year-old was shot in the hand at close range during a struggle with the Ferguson police ofcer who fatally shot him, two experts said in a published report Wednesday. The St. Louis PostDispatch obtained the St. Louis County medical examiners autopsy and an accompanying toxicology report that shows Brown had used marijuana. The newspaper reported that St. Louis medical examiner Dr. Michael Graham and another pathologist not involved in the investigation reviewed the report and said it indicates a wound to Browns hand came at close range. Brown and ofcer Darren Wilson struggled inside Wilsons SUV on Aug. 9 and Brown was shot once in the hand. Brown was killed outside the vehicle. Graham told the PostDispatch that the autopsy report does support that there was a signicant altercation at the car. Brown family attorney Benjamin Crump told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the autopsy offers no insight into why Wilson killed Brown. The newspaper posted a copy of the autopsy and toxicology report on its website. Medical examiners ofce administrator Suzanne McCune conrmed the posted information was accurate but said her ofce wont ofcially release the documents until the investigation is complete. The newspaper did not say where it obtained the documents. Wilson remains on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation into the shooting that has sparked sometimes violent protests in Ferguson.

I havent been presented major sticking points, so I assume we are close to it, Aquino, 54, said in an interview at his ofce in Manila. I wont say that were a day away from it, but were very, very close.

Ground forces and air force helicopters as well as some marine units will remain in the search area, defence forces spokesman Erik Lagersten said, saying that the tactical head of the operation had decided to redeploy some naval vessels. The operation, involving navy vessels, aircraft and army units, is the largest in years. It began Friday after the military said it received credible reports of what it labelled foreign underwater activity. Among the vessels that returned Wednesday to quay at Berga Naval Base south-east of Stockholm was the stealth-type corvette HMS Visby. | NATIONReport: Child poverty at highest point in 20 years(LA Times) Child poverty in America is at its highest point in 20 years, putting millions of children at increased risk of injuries, infant mortality, and premature death, according to a policy analysis published this week in the journal JAMA Pediatrics. As the U.S. emerges from the worst recession since the Great Depression, 25 percent of children dont have enough food to eat and 7 million kids still dont have health insurance, the analysis says. Even worse: Five children die daily by rearms, and one dies every seven hours from abuse or neglect. It shouldnt be this hard for kids to grow and thrive in the worlds richest, most powerful nation, co-author Bruce Lesley, president of the Washington-based child advocacy organization First Focus, said in a written statement.Toys R Us takes Breaking Bad toys off shelves(LA Times) Toys R Us announced that it will pull Breaking Bad toys from all its shelves after more than 8,500 people signed an online petition started by an outraged Florida mother.

Lawyers warned jurors that they would see graphic crime-scene photos and sexually explicit images that Arias and former boyfriend Travis Alexander took of each other before Arias attacked him. She loved him so much that this is what she did to him, prosecutor Juan Martinez said of one ghastly photo. He urged jurors to sentence Arias to death. Defense attorney Kirk Nurmi said Tuesday that Arias was the victim of profound sexual humiliation by Alexander and that she is mentally ill and a victim of child abuse. ARIASGovernment ups air bag warning to 7.8M vehiclesDETROIT (AP) The U.S. government is telling 3 million more car owners to get their air bags repaired immediately, but its message has generated some confusion about which cars are actually affected. The governments auto safety agency is now warning 7.8 million car owners that inator mechanisms in the air bags can rupture, causing metal fragments to y out when the bags are deployed. The original warning Monday covered 4.7 million vehicles. Safety advocates say at least four people have died from the problem, which they claim could affect more than 20 million cars nationwide. The inators are made by Japanese parts supplier Takata Corp.Shatner, Star Trek director to meet NEW YORK (AP) Star Trek may be the next frontier for William Shatner again. Shatner, who played the original James T. Kirk, says hes meeting soon with Roberto Orci, whos directing Star Trek 3, to discuss reprising his Kirk in the rebooted franchise. I had a talk with him the other day, says Shatner. So theres talk simply talk about the next movie. Shatner has said J.J. Abrams, who produced and directed the 2009 Star Trek lm and 2013 sequel, recently called to say Orci had an idea about how Shatner might be in the next lm of the new franchise, which stars Chris Pine as Capt. Kirk. Shatner says he would do the movie if its a meaningful part, a role that had something to do with the turning of the plot. SHATNER WASHINGTON (AP) Nearly 50 years ago, scientists found bones of two large, powerful dinosaur arms in Mongolia and gured they had discovered a fearsome critter with killer claws. Now scientists have found the rest of the dinosaur and have new descriptions for it: goofy and weird. The beast probably lumbered along on two legs like a cross between TV dinosaur Barney and Jar Jar Binks of Star Wars fame. It was 16 feet tall and 36 feet long, weighing seven tons, with a duckbill on its head and a hump-like sail on its back. Throw in those killer claws, tufts of feathers here and there, and no teeth and try not to snicker. And if thats not enough, it ate like a giant vacuum cleaner. Thats Deinocheirus mirificus, which means terrible hands that look peculiar. It is newly reimagined after a full skeleton was found in Mongolia and described in a paper released Wednesday by the journal Nature. Some 70 million years old, its an ancestral relative of the modern ostrich and belongs to the dinosaur family often called ostrich dinosaurs. Deinocheirus turned out to be one the weirdest dinosaurs beyond our imagination, study lead author Yuong-Nam Lee, director of the Geological Museum in Daejeon, South Korea, said in an email. When scientists in 1965 found the first forearm bones nearly 8 feet long many of them envisioned a creature that would strike terror in people, said University of Maryland dinosaur expert Thomas Holtz Jr, who wasnt part of the study. Now its a creature that would strike bemusement, amazement. And yes, he said, its pretty goofy. The find is tremendous but is a cautionary tale about jumping to conclusions without enough evidence, said University of Chicago dinosaur expert Paul Sereno, who wasnt part of the discovery.Goofy dinosaur blends Barney and Jar Jar Binks AP PHOTOThis undated handout image provided by Michael Skrep nick, Dinosaurs in Art, Nature Publishing Group, shows a Deinocheirus. WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) Doctors disagree over whether the second of two 12-year-old girls charged with stabbing a classmate to please the ctional horror character Slender Man is t to stand trial, a judge and attorneys said Wednesday. A state psychiatrist led a report saying he found the girl mentally capable of helping with her defense, but defense attorney Joseph Smith Jr. questioned the state doctors qualications and said he had a report from another doctor who disagreed. Both reports are sealed, and Smith didnt offer any details except to question whether Dr. Robert Rawski had the expertise to evaluate juveniles. You may not be looking at the things that are most important. And while it may be a valid opinion regarding an adult, when youre dealing with someone whos 12, its different, Maura McMahon, another defense attorney for the girl, explained later. Waukesha County Judge Michael Bohren scheduled another hearing for Dec. 18 because the states doctor was not in court to testify Wednesday. Prosecutors say the two girls plotted for months to kill their classmate before luring the child to a wooded park after a sleepover in Waukesha, west of Milwaukee, and stabbing her 19 times. Payton Leutner survived by crawling from the woods to a sidewalk where a bicyclist found her and called 911.Slender Man case at standstill Premier Laser Gum Surgery Provider Charlotte Countys Premier LANAP Provider Dr. Joseph Faraq Excellence in Comprehensive and Implant Dentistry Joseph H.

The Sun /Thursday, October 23, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 WORLD NEWS | WORLDPakistan eyes cannibalism law(Washington Post) As fright-seekers in the United States prepare for Halloween, lawmakers in Pakistan are working to try to prevent their country from producing the worlds next real horror story. Until now, there has been no law in Pakistan against cannibalism, a fact that has fueled persistent rumors of crazed residents roaming cemeteries and streets searching for their next meal. Thankfully, many of the tales appear to be just that unfounded legends passed down over the decades. But Pakistan has documented several cases of cannibalism over the years, prompting lawmakers to introduce legislation this week to try to curb the problem. One bill in the National Assembly claries that anyone who exhumes a corpse with intent to cook, eat, sell or to use for magic purposes will face a mandatory jail sentence of between 10 years and life behind bars. A second bill would make eating human esh punishable by at least seven years in jail.HK protest talks show gap between students, govtHONG KONG (AP) On one side of the table sat the idealistic and ear nest students in jeans and black T-shirts, knapsacks by their sides. Facing them was the lineup of seasoned government ofcials in formal suits. In an unprecedented two-hour televised meeting Tuesday, the students passionately explained why they had taken to the streets for more than three weeks to ght for greater democracy in the specially-run Chinese region. The ofcials responded that the students demands were not legally feasible. The discussion yielded scant progress, and protesters remained camped in the streets of three busy districts of the Asian nancial hub on Wednesday.Police: Tokyo man aimed to join Islamic StateTOKYO (Yomiuri Shimbun) Along with a 26-year-old Hokkaido University student who was investigated over an allegation that he was planning to join the Islamist extremist militant group Islamic State, a second man in Tokyo had also planned to travel with him to Syria, according to senior ofcials of the Metropolitan Police Department. In addition to the two men, several other people had made inquiries after seeing an advertisement recruiting people with an interest in traveling to Syria, the MPDs Public Security Bureau said. The MPD bureau aims to question the men and other interested parties to examine how and why they planned travel to Syria.Iraqi Kurds authorize sending fighters to KobaniIRBIL, Iraq (AP) The parliament of the Kurdish regional government in Iraq voted Wednesday to authorize sending Kurdish fighters known as peshmerga to the embattled town of Kobani in Syria, where fellow Kurdish fighters are facing an onslaught by militants of the Islamic State group. Peshmerga spokesman Halgurd Hekmat in Irbil said Wednesday there is still a lot of uncertainty on details, including how many forces will be sent and when. The vote comes two days after Turkey said it would help Iraqi Kurdish fighters cross into Syria to support their brethren defending the town. The Kurdish government in the largely autonomous Kurdish region of northern Iraq is known to be friendly to the Turkish government. Still, it was unprecedented for Turkey to promise to give Kurds passage to fight in Syria. Ankara views the main Syrian Kurdish military force fighting IS militants as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK. That group has waged a 30-year insurgency in Turkey and is designated a terrorist group by the U.S. and NATO. BUDUBURAM CAMP, Ghana (AP) Henry Boley left Liberia to attend a conference in Nigeria just days after his twins were born. Now, weeks later, he cant get home. Amanda Johnson, a 50-year-old Liberian living in Ghana, awaits her ances departure from their home country for their wedding, but refuses to return home because of Ebola. Hundreds of Liberians are stranded in Ghana, separated from their families because of poverty, fear and logistics. Some are waiting for ights to resume after most airlines canceled ights to Liberia. Others are having trouble navigating or affording the circuitous route back by bus. Many others feel its too risky to return home, even if their spouses or children are des perately urging them to. Boley and Johnson are neighbors in a camp for refugees just outside Accra, the Ghanaian capital, where they monitor the news for any signs that Ebola is slowing down in their home country. Their exile is likely to continue as the worst outbreak of the disease in history continues infecting more people in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, with a total death toll of more than 4,500. Ghana, which is still free of Ebola, has become the hub for an intensied international response to the crisis, with the U.N. Mission for Ebola Emergency Response based in Accra. Ghana is one of 14 West African countries seen as being at risk, and authorities have set up at least three Ebola isolation centers across the country in case there is an outbreak. Boley, a 40-year-old Christian pastor, has been stranded for weeks. He is bored and often thinks of his babies, whom he barely knows. I have been trying to get back to Liberia but its very difcult, he said. This is tough for me. I am the man of the home and when I talk to my wife she says to me that I need to be there. But I cant do anything for her. Boley believes more than 500 Liberians often jobless, broke and desperate for good news out of their country are at the Buduburam camp, an unsanitary maze of tin-roofed shacks, tents and other makeshift structures. Many more are said to be sheltering in other parts of Ghana. When he is not walking about idly, Boley sits huddled among other men who talk quietly over cold drinks. In a crowded market in Buduburams dusty grounds, women sell fresh vegetables, bottled honey and other goods. The area stinks of rotting garbage. Boley had own to Nigeria on Gambia Bird, but after he left that airline stopped ying to Liberia. While in Lagos, Nigeria, people avoided him after learning he was from Liberia, he said. Disinvited from the conference, he took a bus to Ghana, where border ofcials announced there was a possibly Ebolainfected Liberian in their company. People panicked, he said. The only way he can return home is by taking another long bus trip through four countries, including Guinea and Sierra Leone. It would cost him at least $350, money he doesnt have. The most direct route, through Ivory Coast, is closed, and French-speaking Ivorian border ofcials are hostile toward Liberians, he said.Exiled Liberians pray for end of Ebola outbreak mosaicco.com/florida The work we do at Mosaic is critical to helping feed the world.

In 1935, mobster Dutch Schultz, 34, was shot and mortally wounded with three other men during a gangland hit at the Palace Chophouse in Newark, New Jersey. (Schultz died the following day.) In 1942, during World War II, Britain launched a major offen sive against Axis forces at El Alamein in Egypt, resulting in an Allied victory. In 1954, West Germany was invited to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which it did the following year. In 1956, a student-sparked revolt against Hungarys Communist rule began; as the revolution spread, Soviet forces started entering the country, and the uprising was put down within weeks.

NEW YORK (AP) A 73-year-old New York woman has discovered her ofcial voter registration card lists her birth year as 1850, aging her by a whopping 91 years. Luz Pabellon tells the New York Post shes been voting for years but never knew city Board of Elections records misstated her age by nearly a century. Election ofcials tell the newspaper origins of the mix-up can be traced to 1978, when Pabellon registered to vote, listing + in the date-of-birth section of her voting card. Years later, the board entered those cards electronically and the Bronx residents birthdate was somehow entered in as 01/01/1850 by default.

Another U.S. ofcial said the girls were headed toward Turkey en route to Syria and that investigators were reviewing evidence, including the girls computers. The ofcials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation by name. The sisters are of Somali descent, and their friend is of Sudanese descent, The Denver Post reported. The girls were stopped at the Frankfurt, Germany, airport over the weekend. The U.S. informed German authorities at the airport about the girls arriving alone on their way to Turkey, German Interior Ministry spokeswoman Pamela MuellerNiese told reporters Wednesday. She said the three were detained by German police, with approval from a judge, and returned voluntarily to the U.S. on Sunday. They have been reunited with their families in Colorado, FBI spokeswoman Suzie Payne said. A spokesman for German federal police at Frankfurt airport conrmed that the three girls returned to the U.S. on Sunday after they arrived the day before. He spoke on condition of anonymity in line with department rules. Secretary of State John Kerry, speaking during a visit to Berlin on Wednesday, said the case was an example of good cooperation between us and the increased vigilance of law enforcement on this issue of the movement of people from one country to another. The girls fathers reported them missing after they skipped school Friday, taking their passports and, in the sisters case, $2,000 in cash. But the families had no indication of where they might have gone, said Glenn Thompson, bureau chief of the Arapahoe County Sheriffs Department, whose ofcers took the missing persons report. The report contains details of the girls movements. Upon their return, they told deputies they stayed in the Frankfurt airport for an entire day before being detained, questioned and returned to Denver, where they were further questioned by the FBI and sent home. They told authorities they had gone to Germany for family but wouldnt elaborate. The families said they had no prior problems with the girls. A man who answered the door at the sisters home in the Denver suburb of Aurora identied himself as a family member but said he had no comment.JIHADISFROM PAGE 1 Tuesday, Gov. Jay Nixon appointed a special commission to look at how the region can move for ward after the concerns raised by the shooting and its aftermath. Wilson confronted Brown and Dorian Johnson as they walked back to Browns home from a convenience store. After the shooting, Brown died at the scene. Some witnesses have told authorities and news media that Brown had his hands raised when Wilson approached with his weapon and red repeatedly. Wilsons attorney, James P. Towey, did not return messages seeking comment Wednesday.AUTOPSYFROM PAGE 1 Frieden said this was expected to continue. With both airport screening and post-ar rival monitoring, we expect there to be a steady stream of people with some symptoms who are found not to have Ebola. Thats an example of the system working, he said. Local public health ofcials in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey and Georgia where the CDC said about 70 percent of travelers from the African nations are headed are to begin the so-called active monitoring rst. Other states are expected to follow. Dr. Georges C. Benjamin, head of the American Public Health Association, called the new step an elegant solution, noting that public health departments are familiar with this kind of monitoring and shouldnt be overly burdened since the number of travelers is relatively low. Even with the new screening, Frieden and other public health ofcials stress that containing the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the only way to ensure that there are no more cases in the U.S. Since the outbreak began in December, there have been more than 9,900 suspected or conrmed cases, with more than 4,800 deaths, almost all in Africa. Separately, the family of Amber Vinson, one of the Dallas nurses who contracted Ebola while caring for Liberian Thomas Eric Duncan, said she had been cleared of the virus. We all know that further treatment will be necessary as Amber continues to regain strength, but these latest developments have truly answered prayers and bring our family one step closer to reuniting with her at home, Vinsons mother, Debra Berry, said in a statement. President Barack Obama said Wednesday that hes more optimistic about the Ebola situation in the U.S., noting that Nigeria and Senegal had been declared Ebola-free and telling reporters that, with a good public health program, this outbreak can be stopped. He noted that relatives of Duncan, the only person to die of Ebola in the U.S., had been released from connement. It just gives people one more sense of how hard it is to get Ebola, Obama said. This is not airborne. His remarks came after his rst White House meeting with Ron Klain since the Democratic troubleshooter was appointed to coordinate the administrations response to Ebola.MONITORFROM PAGE 1 Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said. He said it was a tragedy with origins as yet not fully known, causes not yet fully understood. Ofcials identied the gunman as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, but gave no immediate details on his background. Canadian police would not speculate on a motive for the shootings. Police said in the initial hours after the shootings that as many as two other gunmen may have taken part. But as the day wore on, the cordon around Parliament was eased, employees were allowed to go home, and it appeared increasingly likely that the attack was the work of one person. Witnesses said the soldier posted at the National War Memorial, identied as Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, was gunned down at point-blank range just before 10 a.m. by a man carrying a rie and dressed all in black, his face half-covered. The gunman appeared to raise his arms in triumph, then entered Parliament, a few hundred yards away, where dozens of shots soon rang out, according to witnesses. People ed the complex by scrambling down scaffolding erected for renovations, while others took cover inside and barricaded doors with chairs as police with ries and body armor took up positions outside and cordoned off the normally bustling streets around Parliament. On Twitter, Canadas justice minister and other government ofcials credited 58-year-old sergeant-at-arms Kevin Vickers with shooting the attacker just outside the MPs caucus rooms. Vickers serves a largely ceremonial role at the House of Commons, carrying a scepter and wearing rich green robes, white gloves and a tall imperial hat. At least two other people were reported hurt. They were listed in stable condition. Around midday, Ottawa police spokesman Chuck Benoit said two or three gunmen were believed to be involved in the attacks. Gilles Michaud, assistant commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, called it a dynamic, unfolding situation. In Washington, President Barack Obama condemned the shootings as outrageous and said: We have to remain vigilant. In a telephone call with the countrys prime minister, he also offered U.S. help and reassurance to Canada, an ally in the U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State group. The U.S. Embassy in Ottawa was locked down as a precaution, and secu rity was tightened at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery just outside Washington. Tony Zobl said he witnessed the Canadian soldier being gunned down from his fourthoor window directly above the National War Memorial, a 70-foot, arched granite cenotaph, or tomb, with bronze sculptures commemorating World War I. I looked out the window and saw a shooter, a man dressed all in black with a kerchief over his nose and mouth and something over his head as well, holding a rie and shooting an honor guard in front of the cenotaph point-blank, twice, Zobl told the Canadian Press news agency.ATTACKFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOPolice teams set up police tape outside Centre Block on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario, on on Wednesday.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) The politically savvy state of Iowa prides itself on purple voting, boasting a congressional delegation evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans. But this year, with a closely matched Senate race and three competitive House seats, the GOP sees an oppor tunity to turn the state a vibrant shade of red. Big bucks and big-name politicians are helping the effort. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul was in Cedar Falls Wednesday, stumping for Republican businessman Rod Blum, who is running against Democratic state lawmaker Pat Murphy in the 1st Congressional District, which includes parts of eastern and northeastern Iowa. The seat is open because Democratic U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley is running for Senate. I think were going to do pretty well in this election, Paul told the crowd of about 200 gathered at the University of Northern Iowa, saying that the wind was behind Republicans this year. Blum is getting advertising help from the National Republican Congressional Committee which is spending $400,000 on television time. He has received a campaign visit from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and will have Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in next week. Democrats are now pumping money into the race as well to try and shore up a seat in what is typically a left-leaning district. Republicans are also spending heavily in the states 2nd and 3rd Congressional Districts. In the 2nd, in southeast Iowa, incumbent Democratic U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack faces a challenge from Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks, a former state ofcial and doctor. And in the open 3rd District, which includes Des Moines, there is a tight race between former Democratic state lawmaker Staci Appel and Republican David Young, a longtime aide to Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley. The 4th District in conservative western Iowa appears likely to stay with Republican Rep. Steve King, though he faces a Democratic challenge. Theres a good Republican trend in Iowa. Thats what were seeing and thats why were putting money in, National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Tyler Houlton said. Republican strategist Doug Gross said a more Republican delegation could increase GOP participation in the 2016 presidential caucuses, perhaps easing the way for a more centrist candidate to win. I think it makes it a more robust process, Gross said. But Democrats questioned how good the GOP chances really were of securing all four House seats. They say they are condent they can keep the 1st and 2nd Districts and have invested signicant dollars to try and pick up the open 3rd District, where Republican Tom Latham is retiring. Obama won the district easily in 2012. I think its a sign that theyve got more money than they know what do with, said Democratic consultant Jeff Link, an adviser to the Braley campaign, noting that Braley had beaten back signicant GOP spending in past congressional races. A key factor for the makeup of the delegation will be the outcome of the closely fought Senate race between Braley and Republican Joni Ernst, a state lawmaker. That race to succeed retiring Democrat Tom Harkin could drive turnout on either side. If Ernst wins, the state will have two Republican senators after decades with a senator from each party.Republicans hope for congressional sweep in Iowa

The Sun /Thursday, October 23, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 5 STATE NEWS FORT LAUDERDALE (AP) In the months before David Mohney shot his three children, killing two of them and then himself, his wifes drinking seemed to be tearing the family apart. She was stumbling drunk at times, repeatedly slapped the children and they were increasingly afraid of her, according to documents released Wednesday by state child welfare ofcials. Cynthia Mohneys disturbing behavior brought child protective investigators to their central Florida home in June. Her husband poured out all alcohol and the investigator had the entire family sign a handwritten safety plan promising Cynthia wouldnt drink or be violent in the presence of the children. Two of the children told investigators they felt safer with their father, especially when their mother was drinking, according an investigation by the Department of Children and Families. Cynthia, a nurse practitioner who worked long hours in an emergency room, was referred to weekly substance abuse treatment and the agency closed its case about a month later. The couple was in the midst of a bitter divorce after more than 25 years of marriage. David Mohney was hoping to end his turbulent marriage, move his children 1,900 miles to South Dakota and away from their mother. Instead, authorities say the 52-year-old father reached for a gun after arguing with his wife last week. The couples youngest, 9-year-old Lauren, survived, and is in a medically induced coma, according to the familys attorney. Killed were her siblings, 14-year-old Savannah and 11-year-old David. Someone called the states child abuse hotline in June about a supposedly drunk Cynthia Mohney slapping her children several times. Two Thanksgivings ago, she was passed out from drinking and was physically and verbally abusive to one of the children when she woke up. On Christmas Eve, an allegedly stumbling drunk Cynthia placed one of the children in a cold shower while they were fully dressed, according to the DCF report. The hits described are loud and hard, beyond corporal punishment. The children were crying, afraid and trying to duck or get away from the mother. The mother hits the father and the children more frequently when drunk or when her relatives are visiting to impress her family, according to the allegation. But Cynthia Mohneys attorney said the allegations were baseless and strategic attempts by a jealous and manipulative husband to get his wife back because he didnt want a divorce. Cynthia attended substance abuse treatment voluntarily, but it was not ordered and she didnt need it, said Zachary Stombos. DCF by law cannot identify callers to the abuse hotline, but the allegations closely mirror what David Mohney wrote in court documents about a week earlier when he asked a Volusia County court for a protective order June 3. Two weeks later he dismissed the request. Although the divorce had turned ugly, Stombos said there was no evidence that David Mohney would ever harm his children. He loved his children ... His children absolutely loved and adored him, Stombos said. But the June visit by a DCF investigator to the home noted physical injury, family violence threatens children, substance misuse-alcohol, in a report that questioned whether the children were in danger.Florida kids slain by father said they feared mom NAPLES (Naples Daily News) The ninth tropical system of the season churning just west of the Yucatan Peninsula could become Tropical Storm Hanna in the next day or two. But the storm is forecast to head east toward Cuba, and a cold front moving south across the U.S. will likely stop it from turning north toward Southwest Florida. On Wednesday after noon, the storm was stalled with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph, but is expected to resume an eastward movement toward the Yucatan. It has a window of opportunity between now and landfall of strengthening into a tropical storm, said Dennis Feltgen, a meteorologist and spokesman for the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Even if it becomes a tropical storm and survives its trek across land, it is forecast to enter the Caribbean Sea again as a depression. It has the opportunity, given the environment ... to regenerate; warm water temperatures, low wind shear, Feltgen said. Its far too early to tell where it would go after that. A few of the spaghetti models do show the storm turning north toward Florida, but Feltgen said theres a reason we dont post models on our website. The only thing people should be paying attention to is the ofcial track and intensity coming from the National Hurricane Center, he said. The storm formed late Tuesday from the rem nants of Tropical Storm Trudy. That storm caused ash oods and deadly mudslides in southern Mexico last week. Though it may seem late in the year for storm activity, the peak of hurricane season actually runs from mid-August through October. This is right on cue, Feltgen said.Could Tropical Depression No. 9 hit Southwest Florida? | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATEFPL 2015 rates to reduce billsJUNO BEACH (PR News Wire) On Wednesday, the Florida Public Service Commission approved Florida Power & Light Companys 2015 rates for fuel and other electric service costs, helping ensure a net decrease in customer bills.

Rick Scott and Democratic challenger Charlie Crist is a dead heat, according to a poll released Wednesday. The Quinnipiac University poll shows Scott and Crist deadlocked, with each receiving 42 percent of the vote and Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie receiving 7 percent. If Wyllie is not factored in, Scott and Crist were tied at 44 percent. For all the money spent on this race, it now appears the winner will be the one whose organization excels at the blocking and tackling of politics getting their voters to the polls, Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a prepared statement accompanying the results.MIA passenger charged with bomb hoaxMIAMI (AP) Several ights were delayed at Miami International Airport after authorities say an international passenger joked about having a bomb.

Thats because it could take decades to recoup the $8,000 to $24,000 youll spend on new windows and installation. Energy Star-qualified windows can lower your energy bills by 7 to 15 percent. Thats only about $27 to $111 per year for a 2,000-square-foot, single-story home with storm or double-pane windows, or $126 to $465 if that home has just single-pane windows. So why bother? New windows can make your home quieter, more attractive and less drafty, and they dont need painting. Theyre also easier to clean than old windows with combination storm and screens and can reduce your carbon footprint. Consumer Reports offers these five shopping tips: 1. How much needs to be replaced? If the existing frames and sills are still sound and square, you can use partial (pocket) replacement units. These fully assembled units slip into the existing frames, saving you money on materials and labor. But if your frame or sill is rotted, youll need full-replacement windows, which include the frame, sill, jambs and generally a nailing flange that attaches the window to the outside wall around the opening. 2. Pick a window type. The style of your house and the existing windows may help you decide. Andersens online style library for homes shows bungalows, ranches and seven other house styles, as well as the type of windows often used for each. The library has great tips on trim color and hardware. Consumer Reports tested two of the most common types, double-hungs and casements. You can change between types, as long as the size is available. On double-hungs the lower inside sash slides up and an upper outside sash slides down, improving air circulation and making full screens ideal. Cleaning is easy, because you can tilt the sash on any of the tested windows. Casements are hinged on one side, like a door, and a crank lets you open them outward, ideal for hard-toreach areas such as over a kitchen sink. Theyre usually more airtight than double-hung because the sash locks against the frame to close. When fully open, casements allow for good ventilation and easy cleaning. Sliders glide on a horizontal track. Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward, while hopper-style windows are hinged at the bottom and open inward. 3. Pick a frame material. Consumer Reports tests found that there are excellent and mediocre double-hung windows regardless of the frame material, except for fiberglass. Wood frames tend to be the most expensive. All are usually clad in vinyl, aluminum or fiberglass on the exterior to protect the wood and eliminate painting. Fiberglassframed windows dont need to be painted. Vinyl frames are usually the least expensive, but arent as attractive. They dont need to be painted or stained, though colors are limited and cant be changed. Among casements, there was little difference between vinyl and wood frames. 4. Dont rely on a contractor to choose. With all the decisions, its tempting to let the pro decide. But given the cost of new windows, the more you know about them, the better. Scour manufacturer websites for ideas. Pellas online design tool lets you pick a window type and then play with details such as finish colors, hardware style and even wall hues. Go to stores to see the windows, inspect the frames and try the handles. 5. Shop around. Prices can vary among dealers with the same windows. You might get a better deal in their off-season, usually late fall or winter. Manufacturers also run specials, so check their websites or sign up for alerts. If the windows in your living room or other lived-in areas of your home are broken or unattractive, consider replacing just those windows rather than waiting years to do the whole house. Five things to know when buying new windows NEW YORK (AP) Stocks fell broadly on Wednesday, snapping a four-day winning streak for the Standard & Poors 500 index, as investors shaken by recent swings in the market sold some of their holdings. A slide in the price of oil dragged down energy stocks. Eight of the 10 industry groups in the S&P 500 fell, led by a 1.7 percent drop in energy. Small-company stocks also fell as traders unloaded riskier assets. The market is still nervous, said John Manley, chief equity strategist at Wells Fargo Funds Management. The extreme volatility of the last few weeks is on our minds. The drop in the S&P 500 came a day after the indexs biggest gain this year. Stocks were higher most of the morning on hopes that the European Central Bank would add to its stimulus program as well as news that U.S. ination remained low last month. A batch of good earnings reports from U.S. companies also helped. The S&P 500 dropped 14.17 points, or 0.7 percent, to 1,927.11. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 153.49 points, or 0.9 percent, to 16,461.32. The Nasdaq composite fell 36.63 points, or 0.8 percent, to 4,382.85. The losses were mitigated by a batch of gener ally positive third-quarter earnings reports, which suggested that corporate prots were still growing at a healthy clip.Slide in energy sector drags US stock market WASHINGTON (Bloomberg) The cost of living barely rose in September, restrained by decelerating prices for a broad array of goods and services that signal the Federal Reserve can keep interest rates low well into 2015. The consumer-price index climbed 0.1 percent after decreasing 0.2 percent in August, a Labor Department report showed Wednesday in Washington. Over the past year, costs increased 1.7 percent, the same as in the 12 months through August. While plunging fuel costs are one reason for the restraint in pricing, clothing retailers, medical-care providers and airlines are also among those keeping a lid on charges. With ination falling short of the Feds goal, policy makers need not rush to raise rates even as the worlds largest economy shows no sign of succumbing to a slowdown in global growth. Ination remains very tame, said Jim OSullivan, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics in Valhalla, N.Y., and the top forecaster of the consumer price index over the past two years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. For now, it gives the Fed the green light to keeping monetary policy accommodative. Over the long haul, theyd prefer to see ination go up a little. The median forecast of 84 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for no change in consumer prices. Estimates ranged from a drop of 0.2 percent to gains of 0.2 percent. Excluding volatile food and fuel, the so-called core measure also advanced 0.1 percent in September after being little-changed the prior month. The gauge rose 1.7 percent since September 2013. Higher rents are the main reason prices are rising at all. Excluding food, fuel and shelter costs, consumer prices dropped 0.5 percent at an annualized rate over the past three months, the biggest decrease in records dating back to 1967, based on Bloomberg calculations. Those costs were up 0.9 percent over the past 12 months, close to the 0.8 percent increase in the year ended in February that was the smallest in a decade. Energy prices fell 0.7 percent in September from a month earlier, and will probably drop even more this month.Inflation short of goal means Fed can keep rates low

GAINESVILLE With his job on the line, Florida coach Will Muschamp has turned to freshman quarterback Treon Harris. Muschamp said Wednesday that Harris will start next week against Georgia in Jacksonville, adding that it will be Harris game from start to nish. The move means the Gators (3-3, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) have benched fourth-year junior Jeff Driskel, who has 12 turnovers the last four games. Driskel has an ankle injury, but the decision has more to do with getting more out of Floridas struggling offense. Muschamp said Driskel certainly is going to have a role in that game. Harris replaced Driskel SPORTSThursday, October 23, 2014 YourSun.com Facebook.com/SunCoastSports @ S unCoastSports SunCoastSportsBlog .com Sports Editor: Mark Lawrence Intelligence Report: Keep an eye on your football teams future foes at suncoastsportsblog.com INDEX | Lottery 2 | Preps 2 | Auto racing 2 | MLB 2-3 | NFL 3 | NBA 4 | College basketball 4 | NHL 5 | Scoreboard 5 | Quick Hits 5 | College football 6 Before the chants of Fire Muschamp rang throughout Ben Hill Grifn Stadium last Saturday, before Flor ida was embarrassed in a 42-13 homecoming loss to Missouri, there was still hope. Hope from Gator Nation that somehow, some way, Florida would rise from the ashes and win the SEC East. The Gators (3-3, 2-3) could have kept that hope alive and kept pace to make a respectable bowl game. But after that train wreck, you have to have a lot of hope and faith to think that can still happen. You pretty much have to be Tim Tebow, who this week, in the nicest way possible, basically said that Florida stinks.

The boys won district titles in seven events and took runner-up honors in three events on the way to scoring 536 team points, 36 ahead of second-place Gulf Coast, to win their second consecutive district title. Schroeder and Jesse Hill won two events each, Schroeder the 200 freestyle and 100 backstroke and Hill the 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle. The pair, which swam without tapering in practice this week, also contributed to champion 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle relays. Both swimmers advance to next Fridays Region 3A-3 meet, as does diver Eric Stover, who won a district championship, and swimmers Brandon Kern and A.J. Nelson, who each took district runner-ups. Many other Tarpons will qualify for the meet, but the exact number will not be determined until Sunday, after the other district meets in the region have been completed.

Billy Butler hit a tiebreaking single, Salvador Perez and Omar Infante drove in two runs each with big hits in a ve-run sixth inning, and the Kansas City Royals beat the San Francisco Giants 7-2 Wednesday night to even the World Series at one game apiece. A night after the Giants opened with a 7-1 victory for their seventh straight Series win, Gregor Blanco led off the game with a home run against hard-throwing rookie Yordano Ventura.

If Brittany Schall carded a 126 or better, the Seahawks would be going to states. Anything higher than that, it would be the Mantas making their third trip in four years. When Schalls scorecard was added, a squeal of excitement escaped the Mantas, and senior Candice Weese rose from her seat to give Roach a quiet st pump. Schall shot a 129, giving Cape Coral a team score of 408 and sending Lemon Bay to Howey-in-the-Hills for the Class 2A state championships. I was trying not to get my hopes up. Coaching as long as I have, Ive seen that last score come in and dash everyones hopes. So I just tried to tell them, Stay level until you see it in print, Roach said. Its good. It feels very good. The results were exactly what Lemon Bay was hoping for, but the waiting didnt make it easy. Weese and fellow seniors Montanna Williamson and Marisabel Rodriguez were off the course by 5 p.m., and the results werent nalized until after 7 p.m. That left them more than two hours to ponder every possible outcome. When Weese nished her round with a 91, she thought I had no chance to qualify for states. After a few more scores trickled in, it began to look like she might be in the running to advance to states as an individual. And once Maria Sheppard added her 121 to Weeses 91, Rodriguezs 93 and Williamsons 101, Weese and her teammates started thinking, Whoa, we might make it as a team. I just hated it. I dont like the suspense, Weese said. But it was great seeing that score on the scoreboard. Two strokes, I mean, its a little differ ence. But it makes all the difference. Four hours of golf and three hours of scoreboard watching makes for a long day. But if you ask any of the Lemon Bay golfers, theyll tell you a berth in the state championship was worth the wait. It feels great, Rodriguez said. Im so happy for my team right now.Region 2A-7 tournamentat Hunters Ridge CC, Bonita Spirings (par 72) Teams: 1. Barron Collier 312, 2. Lemon Bay 406, 3.

At least 12 Charlotte boys swimmers, including freshman Cooper Whitten, who surprised coach Jeff Cain with two sixth-place nishes, are expected to make the regional cut. Two boys divers will likely qualify in addition to Stover, and girls diver Kaylea Burlew is assured a spot after placing second. The girls team, which wore new Kneeskin suits and placed fourth in the team standings, will likely send at least seven swimmers, but the 200 medley relay team was the only swimming event in which Charlotte earned a runner-up. The large number of boys headed to regionals has Cain and Schroeder excited about the Class 3A state meet on Nov. 8, where Charlotte hopes to out-do last years fthplace nish. The Tarpons have spent time looking up the times of state championship contenders Creekside, Gainesville and Belen Jesuit, and Schroeder likes what he sees. I think (this team) has the potential to do better at states, he said. Weve looked at how we stack up, and we stack up pretty well. The depth at states isnt as deep as it was last year. I want us to get top three, if not top two.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@sun-herald.com.District 3A-9 meetat South County Regional Park, Punta GordaGIRLSTeams: 1. Gulf Coast 453, 2.

After Infantes homer, Strickland started screaming and got into a confrontation with Perez as he crossed the plate. The dugouts emptied, but no punches were thrown and Hunter was replaced by Jeremy Affeldt. Ventura allowed two runs and eight hits in 5 13 innings and didnt get a decision for the third straight start in the postseason. Kelvin Herrera, one of Kansas Citys 100 mph-throwing relievers, escaped a two-on, oneout jam in the sixth and was in line for the win. Peavy settled down after Escobars hit, retiring 10 in a row on 28 pitches before Lorenzo Cains soft single to center leading off the sixth. He walked Eric Hosmer, and Machi came in and left a fastball up to Butler, who lined it into left for the go-ahead run. San Francisco tied a World Series record by using ve pitchers in the sixth. After the ceremonial rst pitch from retired Royals star George Brett, Blanco drove a Ventura 98 mph fastball into the Kansas City bullpen for his rst home run since Sept. 22. It was the 10th home run by the opening batter of a Series game, the rst since Bostons Johnny Damon in 2004. Escobar reached on an ineld hit leading off the bottom half, a hard one-hopper that popped out of the glove of shortstop Brandon Crawford, who tried for a backhand stop. Ventura showed the heat that made him the starting pitcher with the highest average velocity in the major leagues this year. He reached 100 mph on his first pitch to Posey in the first.ROYALS 7, GIANTS 2San Francisco AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

The Sun /Thursday, October 23, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 COMMENTARY: NFL Tampa BayWould Bucs draft Jameis?TAMPACan you see where this is headed? On one side, you have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. One win so far. Little evidence to suggest that many more are coming. A high draft pick in 2015 likely awaits. On the other side, theres the kid quarter back from Florida State. Equally talented and troubled. A superstar on the eld, an enigma off. One is spiraling out of control in one direction, the other is ascending so rapidly that he cant stay in a straight line. Their crooked paths seem to be on a collision course. Their intersection could be next springs NFL draft. There, the Bucs could be faced with one of the most interesting decisions in franchise history, a choice that could very well determine the future of the organization. Do the Bucs take Jameis Winston? I realize Im getting a bit ahead of myself here. Were not even halfway through the NFL and college football seasons. Maybe the Bucs will nd the missing pieces they need to start winning games and quarterback Mike Glennon will play too well for Tampa Bay to get a premium draft pick. Maybe Winston, a redshirt sophomore, will stay in school and keep lighting up scoreboards and shredding defenses from Tallahassee to Gainesville to all the places that host the college football playoffs. But, really, I cant see either happening. The Bucs are a mess. On offense, they cant block anyone, they cant run the ball, they have no playmakers. Defensively, they are near the bottom of the NFL against the run and dead last against the pass. They are giving up a league-worst 34 points a game. What makes you think this wreck is getting any better anytime soon? Meantime, Winston has never lost a college game as a starter. His streak is at 20 games after Saturdays big victory against Notre Dame. He could win another national title come January. With a Heisman Trophy and one national championship and counting on his resume, he already has accomplished everything there is to accomplish in college football. His time at FSU has been marred by controversy. A sexual assault allegation. Being cited for shoplifting. A dumb BB gun prank. Standing on a table on campus and yelling nasty things. And now the latest headache of whether or not he sold his autograph for money, which would be an NCAA violation. What makes you think he wants to stick around under constant scrutiny and risk getting injured if he can legally make money millions upon millions by playing in the NFL? Heres what it feels like as of this moment: The Bucs are going to have a high draft pick and Winston will be there for the taking. The other lousy teams out there the Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings and Oakland Raiders already have young quarterbacks. Im telling you, this is all lining up for Winston to be staring the Bucs right in the face at the draft. Should they take him? Would they take him? Those are two very different questions. Should they? I say, no way. Stay away from him. Run from him. I dont want someone who continually makes bad choices to be the face of my franchise. I dont trust him to grow up and clean up and straighten up. I worry that just when I need him the most, hell do another stupid thing to make him unavailable to play. Simply put: I think Winston is trouble. He might be ready for the NFL, but I dont know that the NFL is ready for him. Imagine what he might be like with more cash than he knows what to do with. Now, what would the Bucs do? Like any other NFL team, the Bucs, I believe, would absolutely take Winston if they felt he was the best player available and gave them their best chance to become a good football team. Thats how the NFL works. They think they can x off-the-eld issues. They know they cant x a guy who cant play. Why do you think Ben Roethlisberger has a job and Tim Tebow doesnt? Its all about talent. People who make NFL decisions care, mostly, about one thing: their own job security. That security is based on one thing: winning a lot more games than they lose. The NFL is full of head cases, malcontents and downright bad dudes. For these knuckleheads and the teams that employ them, Sunday is not about church. Its about football. Heck, for all we know, there are NFL quarter backs who are far worse people who have done far worse things than Winston. The questions that the Bucs will ask rst and foremost are these: Is Winston way better than Glennon or Josh McCown or any other option they have at quarterback? And does Winston make them a better team more than any other player in the draft? If the answers are yes and yes, you bet they would take him. My answers would be yes and probably and I still wouldnt take him. But I have a gut feeling that were going to nd out. You just watch.By TOM JONESTAMPA BAY TIMESAt this point, its worth raising the question VIKINGS AT BUCSWHO: Minnesota (2-5) at Tampa Bay (1-5) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa TV: FOX RADIO: 620 AM, 103.5 FM TICKETS: Ticketmaster.comDOLPHINS AT JAGUARSWHO: Miami (3-3) at Jacksonville (1-6) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: EverBank Field, Jacksonville TV: CBS RADIO: 96.1 FM TICKETS: Ticketmaster.comAP PHOTOFlorida State s Jameis Winston could be there for Tampa Bays taking in the NFL draft.

Many ifs and maybes and buts surround Robert Grifn IIIs status for the Washington Redskins game Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys. There is so much uncertainty, he has been declared a wild card by coach Jay Gruden even though Colt McCoy has been announced as the starter. Gruden said Wednesday that McCoy remains the starter as of right now. He also said Grifn has yet to be cleared for full contact, and that hed like to see Grifn go through a couple of days of rigorous practice once the OK comes from the doctors. Gruden added that, for the benet of the team and the coaches game-planning, hed like to make a denitive decision by the end of todays practice as to who will start. Grifn, recovering from a dislocated left ankle injury from Week 2, worked in individual and one-on-one drills during the portion of practice open to reporters. He appeared red up by his performance, clapping hard one time after a long completion to Jordan Reed down the left sideline. Another long pass to Logan Paulsen was worth four claps. Once practice was closed, Gruden said all three quarterbacks worked with the starters. Goodell told to testify in Rice appeal: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has been told to testify in Ray Rices appeal of his indefinite suspension, a person familiar with the case told The Associated Press. Former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones, the neutral arbiter selected to hear the appeal, informed the parties of her decision. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the appeal have not been made public. British government wants NFL team in London: Treasury chief George Osborn told the Evening Standard newspaper that the British government wants an NFL team in London and will do whatever it can to make this happen. The NFL has been playing regu lar-season games at Wembley Stadium every year since 2007. The Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons play Sunday at Wembley, home of Englands national soccer team. Last month, the Miami Dolphins beats the Oakland Raiders 38-14. Next month, the Dallas Cowboys will play the Jacksonville Jaguars. Around the league: Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera said the NFL informed him that Luke Kuechly was wrongfully ejected from Sundays game against the Green Bay Packers for contact with an official. The Minneapolis City Attorneys office said the city cannot ban the Redskins name when Washington plays the Vikings on Nov. 2 at the University of Minnesota because the school is a state not a municipal entity. Jamaal Charles does not show symptoms of a concussion, the Kansas City Chiefs said one day after the star running back told a radio show he saw light bulbs after a hit in a win over San Diego. Indianapolis Colts linebacker Erik Walden was fined $27,562 after being ejected for making contact with an official during Sundays victory over Cincinnati. The attorney for offensive linemen Mike and Maurkice Pouncey said no charges will filed against the twin brothers stemming from a July altercation at a Miami Beach nightclub.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 1985 Royals relish runKANSAS CITY, Mo. Bret Saberhagen was 21 when the Kansas City Royals last played in the World Series before this year. He pitched a Game 7 shutout to beat the St. Louis Cardinals. It took 29 years for him to stand on the mound at another World Series. On Tuesday night, Saberhagen took part in a ceremony to deliver the game ball before the opener between the Royals and the San Francisco Giants. Asked if he had any advice for the players who were warming up on the manicured outfield grass, he replied: Enjoy the moment. Im sure they think, OK, weve been here once and well be here a bunch of times, Saberhagen told The Associated Press before the Giants rolled to a 7-1 victory behind a dazzling performance by their own star pitcher, Madison Bumgarner. But I think its going by so quick, and its such a quick run I dont think itll sink in for a long time, maybe until theyre done playing. Nobody is more closely associated with the 1985 team than George Brett. After retiring as a player, No. 5 moved into the front office, where he has held a variety of roles. When the Royals made their late-inning rally to beat the Oakland As in their wild-card game, the images of Brett mouth agape, hands on his head in disbelief were everywhere. After we beat Oakland, I said, This is unbelievable, Brett recalled. Then I caught myself and said, Well, maybe its not unbelievable. We believed we were this good in spring training. Then when you beat the Angels three straight, you say, Unbelievable! But now Ill never say unbelievable again. Ill say, Fantastic! Great! Whatever. But Im not going to use that as an adjective. World Series TV rating drops to record low: The World Series opener set a record low TV rating for the second time in three seasons. The San Francisco Giants 7-1 win over the Kansas City Royals drew a 7.3 rating and 12.2 million viewers Tuesday night on Fox, according to fast national ratings by Nielsen Media Research. That broke the previous low of a 7.6 rating and 12.2 million for the Giants 8-3 victory over Detroit in 2012. San Franciscos 11.7 win over Texas in the 2010 opener got an 8.9 rating. Phony WS tickets, merchandise seized: Bogus World Series tickets worth tens of thousands of dollars, as well as counterfeit panties and other merchandise have been seized, federal authorities said. Homeland Security agents nabbed 126 counterfeit tickets before Game 1 between the Royals and the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday in Kansas City, Mo. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Shawn Neudauer said the tickets had a $43,000 street value. Meanwhile, officials in Platte County, Mo., charged a homeless man with possessing 101 counterfeit T-shirts with trademark KC lettering, court records show. MLB NOTEBOOKBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DENVER Next up for Peyton Manning: the NFL passing yardage record. Its one of the few glamorous passing records Manning doesnt own, now that he has broken Brett Favres mark for touchdown throws. Manning needs about 5,000 more yards to surpass Favre in that category, and is on track to nish his career with numbers, across the board, that might never be matched. Demaryius Thomas caught Mannings record-breaking 509th career TD in the second quarter. Thomas caught another TD in the third quarter to push the number to 510. Manning said the touchdown mark might be more special than the rest because the touchdowns that Ive thrown have helped us win a lot of football games and weve put a lot of work into winning those games. But it isnt the only record the 38-year-old has set or still might set. A look at four others within Mannings reach. PASSING YARDS (FAVRE 71,838): Manning has 66,812, leaving him 5,026 short of Favre. Manning set the single-season record with 5,477 yards last year. This record could fall in 2015 if Manning stays healthy. Where will it stop, though? Well, 75,000 appears possible if Manning plays at this pace for a few more years. It will help, too, if the Broncos can lock in the Thomases WR Demaryius and TE Julius to long-term contracts. PASS ATTEMPTS (FAVRE, 10,169): After Sundays win, Manning has 8,669 attempts, which leaves him exactly 1,500 shy of the record. Manning averaged 621 throws over his first two seasons in the Denver offense. If he stays at that pace, he could break it toward the end of 2016. The next active player behind him is 35-year-old Drew Brees, with 7,017. PASS COMPLETIONS (FAVRE 6,300): Manning has 5,681 619 behind Favre. Manning averaged 425 completions over his first two seasons with the Broncos. He completes passes at a 68 percent clip with the Broncos; thats about 6 percent better than Favres career average. To put things in perspective, even if Green Bays Aaron Rodgers (2,086 completions) stays healthy and plays for a pass-happy perennial Super Bowl contender, he would have to complete more than 400 passes a season for the next 10 years to get within striking distance. Rodgers is 30, and in his 10th season, the first three of which he spent backing up Favre. CAREER PASSER RATING (RODGERS 105.8): Mannings career rating stands at 97.7, which is second on the all-time list behind Rodgers. Of course, the passer rating comes out of a complex mathematical equation. It fluctuates from throw to throw and is not guaranteed to always go up. Mannings has been in triple digits all three seasons with Denver and his career mark could conceivably get there. Rodgers could rise or fall long after Manning retires. Given the vagaries of a formula that nobody really understands heck, Philip Rivers is in third at 96.9 and could surpass them both there will never be much of a celebration for this mark.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL: SECKentucky, Florida selected 1-2 in SECCHARLOTTE, N.C. Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings believes the Southeastern Conference can play with the best mens college basketball leagues in the nation. Leading the way once again this season will be the SECs Final Four teams of Kentucky and Florida. The Wildcats and defending champion Gators were picked by the media to nish 1-2 in the league in voting released Wednesday. Its a great league. Anybody that wants to say were a two-team league, they can say it, but at least our two teams are in the Final Four, Stallings said Wednesday at the leagues media day. Tennessee, which advanced to the nal eight, was the only other SEC team that qualied for the NCAA tournament. It was the second straight season and third time in the past six years that only three teams from the conference were chosen for the NCAA eld. Florida won the SEC regular-season and tour nament crowns last year, winning 30 straight games and becoming the rst team to go 18-0 in league play. The Gators fell in thenational seminals to champion Connecticut, which defeated Kentucky in the title game. Stallings said Florida and Kentuckys NCAA success helped gain attention for all league teams. Success breeds success, but its the responsibility of the rest of us to close up some of that gap, he said. The rest of us have to make it interesting and make it where its not those two and the rest of us. Once league games start, Florida coach Billy Donovan expects to be challenged by all SEC teams. He believes the SEC is hurt when teams lose nonconference matchups in November and December. Alabama lost games to Drexel and South Florida last season. Auburn fell to Northwestern State. Georgia started 1-4 a year ago with losses to rival Georgia Tech, Davidson, Temple and Nebraska in the Charleston Classic. Whats happened is you go into league games and the league gets labeled, Donovan said. One of the things weve talked about as a league is were going to start measuring our nonconference schedule in terms of strength of schedule where theres almost this thought process now where we want to play the most challenging nonconference schedule. South Carolina has gotten that message with games against Big 12 opponents Baylor, Oklahoma State and Iowa State. Gamecocks coach Frank Martin, in his third year, said his program is ready for games like that. What Martins not ready for are those who brand the league lacking because the SEC doesnt get half its teams in the NCAA tournament. There are 11 coaches in this league that have coached teams to the round of 32 or won national championships, he said. I think its a little insulting when you continue to tell coaches that have that on their side that their teams and their league isnt any good. Martins rst two teams at South Carolina were 14-18 and 14-20, his only losing seasons in seven years as a college head coach. Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy, whose Rebels won the SEC tournament title in 2013, said the league went through a period of instability with the recent additions of Missouri and Texas A&M and several other member schools changing coaches. Now, he said its realistic for the SEC to have six teams in the tournament. As coaches, weve got to schedule strong nonconference games, Kennedy said. Weve got to win basketball games and then once we get to league play weve got to show everybody the strength of our league top to bottom.By PETE IACOBELLIASSOCIATED PRESSCoaches defend depth of conference SEC PRESEASON POLL As selected by the media: 1.

Auburn coach Bruce Pearl is excited about his return to the Southeastern Conference. Hes worried, though, about his inevitable return to Tennessee. The former Vols coach hired earlier this year to turn around the Tigers said it will be an emotional visit when Auburn plays at Thompson-Boling Arena on Jan. 31. Pearl coached six seasons at Tennessee from 2006 through 2011, leading the Vols to the NCAA tournament each year. He was fired in 2011 and placed under a show cause penalty after lying to investigators about violations involving a cookout at his home for junior prospects and their families. Pearls three-year show cause penalty imposed by the NCAA expired in August and hes full-speed ahead at preparing for Auburns season. That includes what he anticipates to be a heart-tugging tour of his old campus where he made many good friends. I get pretty attached to different things, Pearl said Wednesday at SEC media day. There were a lot of five oclock in the mornings walking into the office when nobody else was there. Lot of times youre the last guy to leave the building and you become attached to the trash can, you become attached to the hallway. I know it will be emotional, just from the fact that I love that place and care about it so much, he said. Pearl went 145-61 at Tennessee, winning the SEC championship in 2008. He said his greatest accomplishments were earning the respect of Tennessees two national championship coaches in former womens coach Pat Summitt and ex-football coach Phillip Fulmer. Im part of the Auburn family now and I will do the best I can to represent Auburn, he said. But in some ways, Ill still be a Vol for life. COLLEGE BASKETBALL: TennesseeBy PETE IACOBELLIASSOCIATED PRESSPEARL GREENSBORO, N.C. The Atlantic Coast Conference looks different in womens basketball these days especially at the top. Two of the top three teams in the preseason poll announced Wednesday werent even in the ACC two years ago. Defending champion Notre Dame which has yet to lose an ACC game is the consensus preseason favorite, while Louisville was picked third by both the leagues coaches and a panel of school representatives and media members. Its made for an interesting blend of traditional ACC powers and newcomers who t right in: All four teams have reached the Final Four during the past decade, either from the ACC or the Big East. The leagues like the Final Four, North Carolina coach Sylvia Hatchell said, a Hall of Famer whos back after a season away to ght leukemia. Im so excited to be back out there because at this time last year, I was laying over in the cancer center not knowing if I was going to make it or not, Hatchell said. Im glad to be here, no question about that. Notre Dame received 38 of 41 rst-place votes from panel members and 14 of 15 votes from the coaches. Both groups had Duke second, followed by the Cardinals and North Carolina. The Blue Devils, a topthree pick for the 14th straight year, had won or shared the regular-season title in four consecutive years before they were unseated last year by the Fighting Irish. Notre Dame went 37-1, rolled to a 16-0 mark in conference play, claimed the league tournament title and reached its fourth consecutive Final Four in its inaugural season in the ACC. We have been so close for the last four years, and I think that while were proud of what weve accomplished, we know that we really want to make that next step, coach Muffet McGraw said. Notre Dame, Duke, Louisville and UNC have combined to reach nine Final Fours since 2006 including those four by Notre Dame and two each by the Cardinals and Tar Heels. You look at the teams in there thats been to the Final Four, there is no doubt and I cant imagine anybody would even challenge this league as far as the best league, Hatchell said. Notre Dame favored to win conference titleBy JOEDY MCCREARYASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE BASKETBALL: ACC women NEW YORK One of the biggest issues on the agenda when the NBAs owners arrived in New York for the board of governors meetings was thwarting the tanking strategy employed most brazenly by the Philadelphia 76ers. A proposal to reduce the incentive for teams to lose games on purpose in an effort to get a better pick in the draft appeared to be gathering momentum earlier in the week. All that momentum disappeared almost overnight, with enough skittish owners unable or unwilling to sign off on signicant reforms that could have widened the gap between small and big-market teams. The proposal needed 23 votes for approval but only received 17, with 13 lining up to vote against it on Wednesday. I think, in essence, the owners were concerned about unintended consequences, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said. I think we all recognize we need to nd the right balance between creating the appropriate incentives on one hand for teams to, of course, win, and on the other hand allowing for appropriate rebuilding and the draft to work as it should in which the worst performing teams get the highest picks in the draft. The vote means the existing system will remain in place for now. The team with the worst record will still have a 25 percent chance at getting the top pick and cannot drop lower than fourth. The board agreed to send the issue back to the competition committee for additional study. The reform proposal presented by the leagues competition committee would have drastically reduced the worst teams odds of winning the lottery while also increasing the chances that the teams with the best record in the lottery eld would jump up to the top of the board. Another element of the proposal, the defeat of which was rst reported by Yahoo! Sports, would have made it possible for the worst team to plummet to seventh in the order. The 76ers are at the center of the debate. General manager Sam Hinkie, with the blessing of ownership, has assembled a roster designed to lose in the present in hopes of building a foundation that can win in the future. Hinkie has been unapologetic about his approach, believing that it provides the Sixers the best chance to not just be competitive in a few years, but to contend in the Eastern Conference. They have already landing promising point guard Michael CarterWilliams, forward Nerlens Noel, center Joel Embiid and European standout Dario Saric by stockpiling those high draft picks, but theyve also lost a lot of games while doing it. Philadelphias strategy didnt sit well with some in and around the league who think it compromises the integrity of the games in the present. I dont necessarily disagree with the way it works now, Silver said of the lottery. Id say from a personal standpoint what Im most concerned about is perception out there right now and frankly the pressure on a lot of our teams, even from their very fans, to somehow underperform because its in some peoples view the most efcient and quickest way to get better. I think thats a corrosive perception out there. Since the league went to a weighted lottery system in 1985, the team with the worst record has received the top pick four times, the most recent time coming with the Orlando Magic in 2004.NBA owners fail to pass lottery reform NBA: Owners meetingBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSAP FILE PHOTODwight Howard with former NBA Commissioner David Stern after being selected No. 1 overall by Orlando in the 2004 draft.

(AP) A scandal involving bogus classes and inated grades at the University of North Carolina was bigger than previously reported, encompassing about 1,500 athletes who got easy As and Bs over a span of nearly two decades, according to an investigation released Wednesday. At least nine university employees were red or under disciplinary review, and the question now becomes what, if anything, the NCAA will do next. Penalties could range from fewer scholarships to vacated wins. Most of the athletes were football players or members of the schools cherished basketball program, which won three of its ve national titles during the scandal (1993, 2005, 2009). Well work with the NCAA and work through the report with them as part of our ongoing investigation, athletic director Bubba Cunningham said. Thats going to take some time. In all, about 3,100 students enrolled in classes they didnt have to show up for in what was deemed a shadow curriculum within the former African and AfroAmerican Studies (AFAM) department from 1993 to 2011, the report by former U.S. Justice Department ofcial Kenneth Wainstein found.MEDIAWeir, Lipinski NBCs top skating team: Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski, after attracting attention for their rapport and fashion sense in an understudy role at the Sochi Olympics, were promoted by NBC to its top figure skating broadcast team starting Sunday during the Skate America telecast.SOCCERRonaldo, Benzema lead Real to win at Liverpool: In Liverpool, England, Cristiano Ronaldo moved to the brink of the Champions League scoring record by setting Real Madrid on its way to a 3-0 win over Liverpool in the latest show of strength by the defending champions.TENNISHalep routs Serena Williams at WTA Finals: In Singapore, Serena Williams was routed 6-0, 6-2 by Simona Halep at the WTA Finals in one of the most one-sided losses of the 18-time Grand Slam champions career.

The second-seeded Nadal, playing his third tournament since Wimbledon due to a wrist injury, broke the qualifiers serve five times. In Valencia, Spain, top-seeded David Ferrer powered his way past Andreas Seppi 6-3, 7-5 to reach the second round of the Valencia Open. OTTAWA, Ontario The NHL postponed Wednesday nights game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Senators because of shootings in Ottawa. A Canadian soldier standing guard at a war memorial in the countrys capital was shot to death Wednesday, and gunre then erupted inside Parliament, authorities said. The game was scheduled at the Canadian Tire Centre in nearby Kanata. We are shocked and deeply saddened by todays tragic events on Parliament Hill and in downtown Ottawa, Senators owner Eugene Melnyk said in a statement. Our collective thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims as well as with all members of Parliament and staff who have had to manage through todays difcult circumstances. Hockey is certainly secondary to these types of tragic events and we know our fans stand alongside us with the leagues decision to postpone tonights game. The NHL said the date and time of the rescheduled game will be announced at a later date. The Pittsburgh Penguins played O Canada before their game against the Philadelphia Flyers in pay tribute to the fallen Canadian soldier. Flyers 5, Penguins 3: In Pittsburgh, R.J. Umberger and Matt Read scored 2 minutes apart in the third period to lift Philadelphia. Around the league: Slava Voynovs attorney said the Los Angeles Kings defenseman never hit his girlfriend, and blames Voynovs arrest and subsequent indefinite suspension on a misunderstanding caused partly by their limited English.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, October 23, 2014 play with the heart hes used to seeing. This coming from the ultimate Gator, the Heisman Trophy winner who won two national titles with Florida. The SEC Network analyst who knows as well as anyone how bad Florida actually is. At least hes still giving them a chance. You need to have something to motivate you, something to give you an edge, Tebow told ESPN. Theyre not out of the SEC East. But its kind of hard to nd that edge in college footballs most competitive conference when you dont have a viable quar terback or coach. While former Gator Jacoby Brissett (1,796 passing yards, 16 TDs, 3 INTs at N.C. State) is enjoying a solid season, Florida has been mired in the muck with Jeff Driskel (928 yards, 6 TDs, 10 INTs). Muschamp apparently was too enamored with Driskel to recruit or gameplan for anyone else. He hung his hat on Urban Meyers leftovers instead of making sure he had a solid Plan B Scout Team Skyler Mornhinweg is not a Plan B. And I cant imagine he tried to get Brissett or another former Gator, Boston Colleges Tyler Murphy who rank 36th and 20th in total QBR this season, according to ESPN to stick around. Whether true freshman Treon Harris, who was named the starter Wednesday, is the real deal remains to be seen. Even if he is, Muschamp will soon be a ghost of Florida past. Firing Muschamp midseason will not solve any of the Gators problems. But Florida needs to be taking a serious look at his successor, since it will be making that decision sooner than later. Honestly, though, short of bringing Steve Spurrier back OK, maybe not, but for some reason he was the rst person to cross my mind when asked about who should get the job who should the Gators go after? A logical choice is for mer offensive coordinator Dan Mullen, who has led upstart Mississippi State to the No. 1 ranking. But why would he want to come back to a program in disarray? Another former offensive coordinator and possible candidate is Steve Addazio, the current coach at Boston College. Hes enjoyed mediocre success with the Eagles (11-9) and previously with Temple (13-11). Other names being tossed around by the talking heads include Oklahomas Bob Stoops and Arizonas Rich Rodriguez. Meh. So let me throw this out there: What about Tebow? While Ive never pictured him wearing a headset instead of a helmet, and while he certainly doesnt have the pedigree, stop for just a minute and envision a world where Tebow is the Gators coach. There he is, ring up the team in the locker room pregame. There he is, calling the shots on the sideline. There he is having to be restrained from running onto the eld and taking the snaps. OK, so maybe hed have to work on that part. But I digress. You cant tell me he wouldnt at least consider it since it doesnt look like hell be getting back on the gridiron any time soon. A guy with that much love for the game and that much passion for UF makes him a person of intrigue; and Ill stop short of saying per son of interest. Maybe not now. Maybe Florida will have to endure another couple of coaching ops while Tebow rises through the ranks of the states top high school programs. But if you cant see Tebow as a coach, you need to check your football eyesight. And dont be surprised if you see him on the sidelines at Nease someday soon.Contact Matt Stevens at 941-2061185 or mstevens@sun-herald.com.STEVENSFROM PAGE 1AP PHOTOWill Muschamp probably will not be the coach at Florida next season. Tim Tebow will probably not either. at Tennessee earlier this month and helped Florida rally for a victory. He also made some plays down the stretch in a lopsided loss against Missouri last week. Treon, you saw what he did late in the game, Muschamp said. He has a knack for making plays and making some good things happen for our football team. Weve struggled with production at the quarterback position, and thats been an issue for us along with others. But thats been a huge issue for us. Hes a guy that has a knack for making plays. Weve got an open week now where hes getting a bunch of reps. Jeffs still going to have a role on our football team as a quarterback. Right now we feel like that was the best move moving forward. The Gators rank 98th in the country in total offense and really oundered in consecutive losses to LSU and Missouri. Florida had six turnovers in a 42-13 loss to Mizzou on Saturday. Driskel had four of those, including a fumble and an interception that were returned for touchdowns. He was booed relentlessly, and chants of Fire Muschamp echoed throughout an emptying Florida Field in the second half. The guys are a bunch of prideful guys that certainly understand that was an embarrassing per formance coaching-wise and playing-wise, Muschamp said. We cant afford to turn the ball over. Weve lacked production and explosive plays at the quarterback position. I think couple all those things together, weve struggled. Quarterback play has been an issue at Florida since Tim Tebow graduated in 2009. John Brantley, Jordan Reed, Trey Burton, Jacoby Brissett, Tyler Murphy, Skyler Mornhinweg and Driskel all have taken snaps with limited success. Driskel missed most of last season with a broken right leg, and the team was woefully prepared to play without him. The Gators nished 4-8 in their rst losing season since 1979. Muschamp was given a chance to turn things around, but the offense has shown little improvement under new coordinator Kurt Roper. There were reports that Muschamp would be red after the debacle against Missouri, but athletic director Jeremy Foley opted to keep him around for at least another game.GATORSFROM PAGE 1 Report details Harris allegationsTreon Harris told University of Florida police a sexual encounter with a fellow student was consensual and he was surprised she accused him of sexual battery, according to a police report the university released Wednesday. The woman, whose name was redacted throughout the report, alleged Harris forced himself on her after she had stated she did not want to have sex. After UF and Gainesville police completed extensive interviews, the accuser opted to withdraw her complaint. Harris was reinstated on the Gators football team after the school had suspended him from all campus activities. UF released 175 pages of documents related to the brief sexual assault investigation. This included a 63-page interview with Harris. Edgar Thompson, Orlando Sentinel Virginia Tech and Miami are accustomed to meeting late in the season with championships on the line. That will not be the case tonight in Blacksburg, Va., where two conference losses each nd the longtime rivals playing for relevancy even before November arrives. The Hokies (4-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) took a step back in the Coastal Division with a loss at Pittsburgh last Thursday night, while the Hurricanes (4-3, 1-2) are coming off a bye. Both are hoping their history of success in Thursday night games gives them an edge. Virginia Tech leads all ACC schools with 20 victories in Thursday night games and will be making its 29th appearance. The Hurricanes have the leagues best winning percentage (.850), having won 17 of 20. Hokies quarterback Michael Brewer, who transferred from Texas Tech, said the prospect of playing on the national stage of a Thursday night game was one of the selling points when he picked Virginia Tech. Ive heard a lot about Thursday nights here, even from when I was being recruited, Brewer said. Ive heard that its pretty awesome, that one of the best atmospheres in college football is a Thursday night football game here in Lane Stadium, so Im really looking forward to that. Its going to be fun for our fans to get to see us play a team of Miamis caliber and its going to be really fun for us, too. The Hurricanes got their offense cranked up in a 55-34 victory against Cincinnati in their last game, compiling 621 yards of offense, including 335 yards on the ground, but will be facing a better defense. Theyre very aggressive. They have outstanding coverage guys on the perimeter. They make it tough for you to win one-on-one out there and beat them for explosive plays, Miami coach Al Golden said. If you do catch it, they do a good job tackling. We have to be creative and nd ways to run the ball. When we do hit plays, we have to make them pay. In many seasons, this would have been a compelling matchup, but even with the stakes, Hokies coach Frank Beamer expects a long history in the series to help his team be ready for a difcult test. I think we have a great respect for Miami and the type of program it is and the types of athletes they have on the team and how good theyve been over the years, Beamer said. I think out of respect that probably helps us play well against them, so I think thats kind of the situation there. Miami freshman quarterback Brad Kaaya makes his Thursday night debut in a tough place to play, but hes not new to a prime-time showcase. Miami opened the season on Monday night, Sept. 1 at Louisville, and while they lost 31-13, Kaayas numbers place him among the nations top quarterbacks. Miami ranks only 66th nationally in rushing offense, averaging 162 yards, but tailback Duke Johnson has been on a roll, topping 100 yards in his last three games. He also has breakaway speed, and needs only to get loose once or twice to have a huge impact on the Hurricanes chances at victory. COLLEGE FOOTBALL: MiamiAP PHOTOVirginia Tech running back J.C. Coleman carries against Pittsburgh last Thursday in Pittsburgh. Virginia Tech leads all ACC schools with 20 victories in Thursday night games.

TV: ESPN RADIO: 770 AMGeorgia seeks to reinstate GurleyBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSATHENS, Ga. Mark Richt said he was optimistic on Wednesday as Georgia was expected to le a request with the NCAA for tailback Todd Gurleys eligibility to be reinstated. Gurley, the Southeastern Conferences leading rusher, has been suspended for the last two games while Georgia investigated allegations he broke NCAA rules by receiving improper benets. I think we as an institution and Todd as a student-athlete did every thing within the protocol of the governing body, the NCAA, so hopefully it all will end well and hopefully sooner than later, Richt said after Wednesdays practice. Georgia said in the statement released Wednesday morning it hopes for and expects a prompt ruling by the NCAA. It was unclear Wednesday evening if the university had led the request. Richt has conrmed the allegations involved autographs. In the statement released by Georgia on Wednesday, Gurley acknowledged making mistakes. I want to thank the university, coaches, teammates, and the Bulldog Nation for their patience and support, Gurley said. I take full responsibility for the mistakes I made, and I cant thank the university, my coaches, and teammates enough for supporting me throughout this process. Im looking forward to getting back on the eld with my teammates. Richt said he believes Gurley has been honest in the way he addressed the allegations. I think we all make mistakes, Richt said. What Ive always asked of our players is if they do make a mistake to be honest about it and to take their discipline like a man and then move on in a positive direction, move on in a positive way. I think thats the approach Todd has taken right now. After reviewing Georgias request, the NCAA could either accept the two-game suspension of Gurley imposed by Georgia as sufcient or announce a longer suspension and possible additional penalties. K-States Snyder up for College Hall of Fame: Kansas State coach Bill Snyder is among the 81 coaches and players up for election to the College Football Hall of Fame.

ON THE COVERWaterLine photo by Josh OliveThis Okeechobee bass grabbed a worm almost as long as itself. They dont call em largemouths for nothin. WEEKLY MAGAZINE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR JOSH: I live in Venice January through April and take the party boat out of Englewood. Are there any daily party boats out of Venice? Seems like there would be a market for one. Nick Dej NICK: I dont know of any party boats that run from Venice. However, there are several charter services that will take you oshore from Venice. Generally, a charter will take up to six people. Split six ways, youll spend about two or three times as much for a day of shing but you should expect to have a considerably better shing experience on a private charter than you would from a head boat. I was able to nd several outtters with a simple Google search: Venice Florida oshore shing. Josh Olive, WaterLine Publisher JOSH: I have been reading WaterLine since about 2008. For a long time, you, Josh Olive, were the editor, then you were the publisher and a dierent person (I think his last name was Anderson) was the editor. Now you appear to be the publisher AND the editor. I thought I read your magazine thoroughly, but if you answered that in the magazine I must have missed it. Is that other person gone or just not mentioned anymore? Bob Blank BOB: Lee Anderson was the WaterLine editor for a while, but due to some internal changes hes now part of the team that builds the daily newspaper. Im currently functioning as both publisher and editor. Its a lot to do, but at least I know who to blame when something gets done wrong.

A friend of mine called me the other day to talk about sh tags. No, not for tracking for harvesting, like the type alligator hunters are required to use. It seems hed been spending some time reading up on all the lunacy surrounding sector separation (which well talk more about next week, because we should know something), and some folks had brought up the idea that youd have to buy tags in order to take sh home. Want to keep that red grouper? OK attach this one-time use tag to his gill, tear o the part youll have to send in to record the catch, and drop him in the cooler. How would you get a tag? Youd buy it at the tax collectors oce (or, as rabid rumor has it, at Walmart, where they could charge you any price they wanted). For now, its all speculation. But its frantic spec ulation for some people the kind that could END RECREATIONAL FISHING AS WE KNOW IT!!! Could it? Eh probably not. But sh tags or something similar will likely be coming at some point, and for very good reason. Recreational shing as we know it, at least for saltwater species in this part of the country, is unsustainable. There are too many people wanting to bring home the same sh. To balance out the demand and the supply, regulators have used traditional tools such as bag limits and seasons. But were reaching a tipping point for some sh. How do you set a bag limit of a quarter of a sh? Doesnt work. You could restrict seasons tighter, but how tight do you want to go (nine days for red snapper, anyone?) Besides, theres another problem: Counting the sh taken. Stock assessments provide regulators with at least an idea of how many sh are out there. Creel surveys then give them an idea of how many are caught. Add an assumption to an estimate and youll probably get well, its fuzzy math, so the answers are fuzzy. So how do you get better numbers? Fish tags are one possible solution. There would need to be a lot of discussion before they could become reality, but if they were done right, it wouldnt be so bad. Highly sought species, or those that have had management troubles, would probably come rst: Red snapper, various groupers, amberjack, triggersh, hogsh. If the cost were prohibitive, that would be a problem. But when youre talking about oshore species here, which seem to be the focus of the discussion anyway, whats prohibitive? If youre spending $400 to gas up the boat and $100 on bait and chum, is a handful of $5 tags going to be the nal straw that keeps you on the dock? Naturally, demand will exceed supply for some species. In those cases, a lottery system could be instituted again, like what we have for gators. The number of tags issued could be adjusted year to year. With regulators having a harvest estimate that is much closer to the actual harvest (face it; well never get it absolutely right), itll be simpler to gure out how to manage populations for greatest available yield. Or, if the fearmongers are right, all the tags will be bought up like front-row concert tickets, and youll have to pay scalper prices or get left out. If you think theyre right, then heres your challenge: Come up with a better solution that recognizes the realities on the ground (in the water?). Most of the time, opponents of change dont have a working counterproposal. They just say no. This is a problem that needs solving, not an ideological debate. Either help x it or stay out of the way. Look, no one likes this. We all want a return to the good old days of going out and loading the boat. But thats not going to happen. There are too many of us. New solutions are required, or we can give up on the idea of shing having any sort of future at all. When you look at them in that light, are sh tags really so bad?

Page 6 October 23, 2014 LOCAL FISHING REPORTS FROM VENICE TO PINE ISLAND INSHORE & FRESHWATER GULF & OFFSHORE BEST BETThere are everywhere, but the vast majority are under or over the slot. The inshore mangrove snapper bite has slowed a bit but is still decent. Fish to 14 inches have been taking live shrimp around dock pilings. Red grouper are closed in federal waters but still open inside of 9 miles, and there have been some good keepers taken in state waters at about 50 feet. While youre out there, youll probably pull up decent numbers of lane snapper and grunts, and you can use smaller baits for tasty squirrelsh. The ats of Lemon Bay have been a great spot for redsh at low tide. Theyll be happy to eat root beer MirrOlure Lil Johns and other dark soft plastic baits. There have been great schooling redsh reports from Whidden Creek; whitebait is the top producer if you can get it. Watch them once you hook one or youll lose the school. Big snook to 40 inches plus are taking whitebait around docks and mangroves where the water is moving. Scattered pompano are in the channels and passes; Boca is always good. The best ounder reports are coming from Boca Grande Pass as well. Flag yellowtail snapper and some very nice mangroves are coming in from 33 miles out. Blitzing bonita and Spanish mackerel have been within a mile of the beach tearing up threadns. Good kingsh 35 to 40 inches are hitting trolled 5-inch Yo-Zuris just outside Boca Grande even Jim caught one, so its just about a sure thing. Both juvenile and large tarpon are moving up into the Myakka and will hit topwater plugs. Largemouth bass are hitting shiners in the North Port canals. Tilapia are taking cut shrimp or red worms. Kingsh and barracuda are hitting trolled spoons or other ashy lures 5 to 7 miles out. Anglers are using diamond jigs to catch grouper and kingsh on the deeper reefs. The Myakka from North Port to El Jobean is full of snook and redsh. Bomber topwaters and trolled Rapala X-Raps are hooking a lot of sh. FISHING TIP OF THE WEEK: Using artificial lures can be far more challenging when baitfish are abundant and easy to capture pretty much the situation we have right now. Scaled sardines and juvenile threadfin herring are plentiful, and gamefish are gorging themselves on these swimming protein nuggets. So whats an angler to do? First, try matching the hatch. Throw white soft plastic shad lures, white bucktail jigs, and silver or white spoons. And you should have these available in two or three sizes because baitfish right now range from 3 to 6 inches long. If that doesnt get the results you want, a little scent appeal might. Soaking soft plastics in menhaden oil for a few hours (or days) will impregnate them with a smell you will find disgusting but that the fish will find irresistible. You can also dip a bucktail jig in the same smelly stuff. If you still get no bites, but you know the fish are there, your best option is to go with the flow and break out the cast net.

The east wall sh are scattered from shing pressure. Trout reports are getting better in the upper Harbor on suspending plugs, swimbaits and shrimp under a cork. The cooler weather has snook feeling spunky and hungry. Big ones are on the bridge pilings, especially if theres a light source at night. The afternoon bite has been better than chilly mornings. Mangrove snapper are taking shrimp or whitebait. Light leader and plenty of chum will improve your chances. Keeper gags are coming from nearshore rocks and micro-reefs. Cobia are spotty but should improve soon. Get out in the Gulf for some kingsh if you can. You dont need to get out far; 2 to 5 miles should do it. Troll Bomber or Rapala lipped plugs at a depth of 5 to 15 feet. If you see them hitting bait, switch to a spoon. Two-pound tilapia are biting red wigglers or corn in the Port Charlotte canals. Trout up to 20 inches are biting as far up as the U.S. 41 bridges. Redsh are good on the east wall from Colony Point south and scattered on the west side. But west wall snook action has been better. Pompano and ounder are haunting the channel edges. The mangrove snapper are still thick on the ats. Theres a good blacktip shark bite around Cape Haze Point. Kingsh are here but still spotty. Spanish mackerel, though, are all over, from Alligator Creek Reef to 15 miles out. Youll nd lots of mangrove snapper at 3 to 5 miles, but for some whopper 5and 6-pounders, head out to 120 feet of water. For gags, troll a big lipped plug in 45 feet. Tarpon are still here. Start looking at the U.S. 41 bridges or the deep holes in the mouth of the Myakka. Theyll whack whitebait, ladysh, Hogys or DOA Bait Busters. The afternoon bite has been best. The south end of the east wall and the ICW are holding scattered small schools of redsh. Big ones from oshore are starting to come in. Snook are in the same spots, but the bites much better at night. Mangrove snapper are still on the ats but there are more around the passes. Pomps are showing up on the beaches; a few are even in the Harbor. Spanish macks are moving in and out with the tides. Small sharks are plentiful on Cape Haze. The mangrove and lane snapper bite is incredible at 10 to 15 miles. A few spotty sheepshead and ounder are starting to show up on the reefs but itll get a lot better soon. Spanish mackerel are from the passes to 15 miles. The kings are coming, but right now there are only a few small ones around. Tarpon in late October? Oh, yeah. There are smaller sh in the rivers and canals, but the bigger ones are from the 41 bridges to Cape Haze Point. Ladysh and Hogys will get em. There are massive schools of Spanish mackerel just o Lighthouse Beach on Sanibel; cast or troll spoons. Trout really havent picked up yet, but there are a few on the ats hanging around the mangrove snapper. A handful of good sharks have been caught despite the cold fronts rolling through. The Matlacha Bridge has been producing a few cobia and some very nice black drum. Gags are turning on in deeper water at 60 miles, along with a ridiculous number of catch-and-release red grouper. Closer in, look for big kings 3 to 4 miles out eating live baitsh, or check the stone crab trap oats for tripletail and the occasional cobia. Redsh and snook are hanging out together under the mangroves. Throw a 4-inch topwater (the Bomber Badonk-A-Donk in mullet is hot) to get them to bite.

FWRI conducts applied research and provides scientic information used to manage Floridas marine resources. GUIDELINES FOR DONATING SNOOK CARCASSES All regulations apply. Donate only legal snook during open snook season. Donate all sizes that you harvest. (Donating only large sh will bias the data.) Donate as many sh and as often as you can; however, do not harvest sh for the program. Keep only those snook you would normally keep. Donate both tagged and untagged sh.

Page 9 October 23, 2014 By Mark Davison & Ryan Boley By Mark Davison & Ryan Boley Costa Rica or Florida?Ryan and I thought we would check out the real estate market in Costa Rica. Actually, thats not the whole truth my daughter is living there, and it was a good excuse to go and see some of the most incredibly stunning scenery in the world. And to get this West Virginia boy out of the country for his very rst interna tional trip (and boy did he ght). We had a full week of fun, shing for roostersh (a great-ghting Pacic game sh) and some of the biggest jack crevalle Ive ever caught. Then we were zip-lining and fourwheeling through the rain forest mountain terrain. If you could think of it, we did it! We made our home base in Quepos, on the Atlantic coast. Its a quaint, rustic town, full of warm and friendly people. Its growth was inuenced by the banana plantations in the area. We never felt unwelcome by the villagers at any time. The mountain Manuel Antonio is a few miles up the road from Quepos, which oers up breathtaking views from every angle. We never tired of these scenic vistas and would go back again in a heartbeat. We did take a break from sight-seeing to visit one of the local real estate brokers and see how their housing market was doing. Some of the agents there told us that they did not suer price drops like we did here in the states. Their market just slowed down a bit but has taken o again, with Americans and Canadians coming into the country to purchase real estate. Buyers are ocking to Costa Rica for waterfront property very similar to the inux of people that we are experiencing here in Southwest Florida. Charlotte Countys market was strong in September, with 467 units sold. October certainly looks to be similar or maybe a little busier. Inventory is low, but buyers still like our prices here in Southwest Florida even if they are going up. We may not have the spectac ular mountain views here, but we do have the beautiful barrier islands, Gulf of Mexico, and Charlotte Harbor with views to die for. The shing here is phenomenal. Saltwater Sportsman magazine recently named Port Charlotte one of the top 20 snook and redsh havens in the world. We also have world-class tarpon shing and sailing and yes, it is truly world-class. Our inventory is a strong factor currently aecting the local housing market, and its certain to be a factor experienced nation wide. The current demand for waterfront properties is high. Trac has already started to pick up the pace in our area. With snowbird season right around the corner, I predict a strong surge in buyer interest for water front real estate. Our community has many extraordinary things to oer, and buyers can still nd a fairly priced waterfront home to purchase. I would consider that very impres sive, wouldnt you?

Page 10 October 23, 2014 Photo providedJim Klausing broke in a new reel on this Charlotte Harbor redsh. Most anglers have a favorite sh. Sure, were happy to see something put a bend in the rod, but theres generally something wed really rather be catching. Whats yours? Tarpon? Redsh? Snook? Trout? Cobia? Kingsh? Sharks? Whatever your answer is, Ive got some great news: Theyre biting right now. Were in that magical time of the year when Floridas weather is transitioning from tropical to temperate. The sh of summer are still here (but not for long) and the sh of winter are starting to arrive. Now for the bad news: Theres still a lot of fresh water coming out of the rivers, and thats messing with where the sh are. For example, the schools of redsh arent hanging out where they were a couple weeks ago. But make no mistake, the sh are there. You just might spend more time looking than you want to. Have you ever watched one of those boring bass shing shows? Those guys usually dont devote a lot of time to shing one spot. They make a few casts and move on. Normally I wouldnt advocate that method for our saltwater sh, but lately thats been kind of the way it is. The sh are moving around a lot. A whole lot. By hunting around, youll give yourself a better chance of coming across them, which means you have a better chance of catching them. OK, enough generalities. Lets look at what your favorite sh are doing right now and what you can expect from them in the coming weeks. Tarpon dont like chilly water, so most of the big ones will be moving out soon, headed for the Keys and points south. But it takes energy to migrate, so theyre feeding heavily in the river mouths and open waters of the Harbor. That activity is happening mostly on the incoming tide time of day doesnt seem to matter to them. How long it lasts depends on the weather. If we see a fairly strong front come through, kiss them goodbye. If I were placing a bet, Id say two to three weeks. Tis the season for schooling redsh, and I think we probably have a lot of that still ahead of us because there are still big redsh being caught incidentally oshore on trolled plugs. The west wall is usually a good spot, but the east wall has been doing much better lately because the water is saltier (the rivers ow much more down the west side of the Harbor look at a map and youll see why). Id hunt from just north of Pirate Harbor to Two Pine, then skip over to Pine Island Sound and keep heading south. In the short term, reds will keep doing what theyre doing. Schools, both tightly packed and loosely associated, will be on the ats and under the mangroves. Whitebait are still here, and theyll be the hot bait. Pinsh will work if you cant nd whitebait. The party usually breaks up in the last half of November, and then you wont nd anything but shorts for a few months. Snook move to the beaches to spawn in summer, and a lot of them are still there right now. Theres been a lot of bait out there and its been keeping good numbers of snook in the surf. But not every snook enjoys beach life, and there are more of them moving into the upper Harbor every day. The best bite is prob ably in the passes and the nearby Intracoastal, and the sh will be on the move, not staying in one place for long. As with the reds, whitebait are the top choice as long as theyre around. By this time next month, well see fewer (maybe a lot fewer) snook on the beaches and more (maybe a lot more) moving into the river mouths and deeper canals. Usually theyre reaching their largest numbers at El Jobean and the U.S. 41 bridges just about the time season closes for the winter. As long as the water temperature keeps dropping, the trout bite is about to explode. Right now, theyre on the ats, but in 3 to 5 feet of water and not schooled up yet. Theyre catchable, but its hit or miss. The best chances will be in Lemon Bay, Gasparilla Sound and Pine Island Sound over deeper grass. By mid-November, they ought to be forming gangs and moving up into shallower water. More of them will move up Harbor, showing up around Alligator Creek and Port Charlotte Beach. Theyll also get more aggressive about feeding as the temperature drops. Some years we get a great fall cobia season. This hasnt really been one of those years. There certainly have been some sh caught, but most of them have been short of keeper status. Still, it pays to be ready any time the boat is anchored or drifting, because these sh have a habit of showing up when you least expect them and vanishing as soon as you get a bait ready. The guy whos set to cast at a moments notice is the guy who catches these brown ghosts. King mackerel are pretty specic about the water temperatures they like 72 to 75 degrees suits them best. Its about 80 now and dropping, so were seeing the rst wave of sh coming in. Good schools of smaller sh (5 to 10 pounds) will be showing up in a week or three from 3 to 25 miles oshore. But the big ones those 30to 50-pound smokers will be much closer to the beach, usually within a mile or so. If youre after big ones, you might sh all day for just one bite but what a bite! Since theyre temperature-sensitive, the window of availability might be two weeks or two months. Sharks keep the same calendar as tarpon, mostly. The little (fun-size!) blacknose and sharpnose sharks move oshore into deeper water about the time the tarpon disappear. Sandbar sharks are winter visitors, and they like Spanish mackerel and bonita, so when theyre here, the sandbars are here. Bull sharks will also hang out around those delicious shes, as will big blacktips and spinners. Macks usually stick around for a while, so we should have some good sharks around until maybe January. Actually, bait is really the deciding factor for sharks. The big tarpon-munching hammer heads are long gone, but their teenage kids (the 5to 8-footers) are available because they follow the kingsh migration. As the kings pass us, so will the hammers. By the time it gets chilly, well be left with mostly juveniles of several species and of course bonnetheads, which love to cruise the ats in winter pretending to be their bigger cousins. So many sh, so little space! Mangrove snapper, pompano, tripletail, ounder, gag grouper oh, well. Keep checking the shing reports (or I could do a part two of this column, but youve got to ask). Just get out there and sh, because if you let all this action pass you by, it really would be a bad thing.Robert Lugiewicz is the manager of Fishin Franks Bait & Tackle, located at 4425-D Tamiami Trail in Charlotte Harbor.

Page 11 October 23, 2014 WaterLine photo by Ralph AllenThis red groupers stomach is protruding from its mouth as a result of barotrauma. Sticking a needle into the exposed organ only makes things worse.When a person has gas, its an inconvenient and sometimes embarrassing condition. For most species of sh, though, having a little gas is a good thing. Most bony sh have a swim bladder, an internal buoyancy organ which contains just enough gas to keep the sh very close to neutrally buoyant. For most sh, this is a good thing. A sh thats neutrally buoyant can stop swimming and remain perfectly motionless without sinking to the bottom like a rock or popping to the surface like a party balloon. If a predatory sh can freeze in position and remain stationary, then it can lie in wait for prey. If a prey sh senses a threat, it can freeze in position and might go unnoticed by the lurking bad guy who wants him for supper. But not all sh are neutrally buoyant. Sharks and stingrays lack swim bladders and are negatively buoyant all the time, meaning that they tend to sink to the bottom. Sting rays spend a great deal of time on the bottom anyway, so being a sinker isnt an issue for a ray. Most sharks are mid-water sh, but since they have no swim bladder they sink if they stop swimming. Have you ever seen a shark that wasnt actively swimming? If so, it was either sinking or already on the bottom. Nurse sharks and a few other species do spend much of their time lying motionless on the sea oor. There are other sh which are sinkers: Toad sh, scorpionsh, blennies, gobies and most other sh which tend to sit on the bottom. Most of the sh we encounter are neutrally buoyant, but maintaining neutral buoyancy is more complicated than it might appear. For example, if the swim bladder of a sh contains just enough gas to achieve neutral buoyancy, and the sh then eats a crab or some other heavy prey, the sh suddenly becomes heavier and tends to sink. The sh compensates for this by chemically producing more gas in its swim bladder until the balance is returned. Then, as the prey is digested and the remains eventually pooped back into the water, the gas bubble in the swim bladder gets smaller and smaller as needed to maintain neutral buoyancy. The size of the gas bubble in the swim bladder of any sh is constantly being tweaked as the sh eats, digests food, burns calories, rises or falls in depth, encounters warmer or cooler water, and as a host of other conditions change. For the most part we dont think too much about the swim bladders in sh, except when were cleaning our catch and our llet knives get bogged down in the rubbery membrane which lines the swim bladder, or when we catch a sh in very deep water. When a sh is pulled to the surface after being hooked at depth, the decrease in pressure as the sh nears the surface can cause the gas in the swim bladder to greatly expand in volume. If the expansion is great enough, the sh can be injured and/or immobilized when the suddenly enlarged swim bladder either displaces internal organs or inates to such a large size that the sh oats like a cork and cannot swim back to the bottom. When a sh is so aicted, its said to be suering from barotrauma, or trauma related to pressure. Most grouper shermen have seen sh that are blown up, suering from barotrauma. In mild cases, the sh may simply appear bloated. In more serious cases, the swollen swim bladder may cause the stomach of the sh to be pushed out the shs mouth, and in extreme cases the eyeballs might bulge out of the shs skull. In todays world of ever-increasing restrictions on the harvest of many popular sh species, anglers often nd themselves releasing sh that are suering from the eects of barotrauma. Many of us have watched helplessly as a released sh drifts away on the surface, unable to swim back to the bottom. Such immobilized sh might eventually recover enough to survive. Or they might die, either because they are extremely vulnerable to predators or because the displacement of their organs eventually proves fatal. In 2008, the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council required that anglers harvesting reef sh carry and use a venting tool basically a hollow metal needle that could be poked through the side of a sh to release the gas from the swim bladder prior to release. The FWC soon followed suit with a similar requirement for reef sh taken in Florida waters. It was thought that a sh with a hole poked through its side and into the swim bladder would have a better chance of survival than an intact sh drifting away helplessly at the surface. While it is true that venting of sh probably does increase the odds of survival in some cases, there are problems with this technique. The rst and possibly the greatest problem is the tendency for anglers to stab the sh in the wrong place. Many, many anglers thought that poking a hole in the portion of the shs stomach that was everted out the mouth was the way to go. In reality, this causes serious injury to the stomach lining. Other anglers jabbed the sh too far forward or too high or low on the side. Another issue is that modestly inated sh can often survive just ne if theyre able to swim directly down to the bottom upon release, and the requirements for the use of venting tools resulted in many sh being sent overboard with venting holes needlessly poked in their sides. A few years ago, Florida Sea Grant recog nized that there were problems with the use of venting tools and began searching for alternatives that would both increase the survivability of released sh and be accepted by recreational anglers. If a blown sh can be physically carried down towards the bottom, the increasing pressure as the sh descends will decrease the eects of barotrauma with no need to poke venting holes in the sh, so research focused on equipment that could be used to descend the sh manually. Various contraptions were tested and discarded as too cumbersome or too dicult to employ, and eventually a handful of workable tools were developed. Sea Grant agents took the results of their research to the Gulf Council and the FWC and were able to convince those agencies to remove the regulations requiring the use of venting tools, giving anglers more latitude in deciding what to do with blown sh. Take a look at the Sea Grant website CatchAndRelease.org to learn how you can help your released sh survive. Lets go shing!Capt.

Page 12 October 23, 2014 Page 13 October 23, 2014 WaterLine photo by Abbie BanksA great blue heron stalks his supper in a ditch near the Laurel Landll.Don and I were awakened by the alarm clock. I knew the snooze was on so I was a bit lazy and did not jump out of bed. When the snooze alarm went o, that was the countdown as we had to be on the road real soon. Max, our Maltese, got some breakfast and Don walked him and then we gathered our birding gear and we were o. As I walked out to the car, I spotted a catbird and palm warblers. This is the sign of the return of fall birds for us. As we drove down the road, we saw a great horned owl just around the corner, sitting on a wire searching for his breakfast. We had no time to stop. Each October, one of the rst Venice area Birding Association expeditions of the year is a eld trip to the Laurel Landll. Lou and Jan Kovach have led this trip each year. This year was a full trip. We had a caravan of cars riding through the roads at the landll. Immediately as we entered the landll, everyone was treated to the sight of several turkeys trying to get over a barbed wire fence. The gals in our car were getting upset for the turkeys, as the birds were having diculty spreading their wings to y over the fence. Then suddenly they ran out on the road. Cars were coming and I had visions of turkey dinner, but turkeys must be a tad smarter than we give them credit for. They came out on the road to get a bit more room to spread their huge wings so they could y over the fence. This was just in the nick of time, as a big truck was tooling down the road certainly exceeding the speed limit. We all cheered for the gobblers and started to move on but Lou spotted several deer on the side of the road. We had to pull over for a minute to see Bambis beautiful cousins. We pulled into the landll oce to sign in and register our group. Lou informed us all that evidently a new rule exists we have to call when a large group comes through. Last year they installed a gate and one must punch a code in to access the refuge area and dumping areas. I did not realize that trash was so precious. Well, we nally were on our way into the refuge area. Immediately we all spotted a beautiful red-shouldered hawk hunting from the top of a telephone pole. The hawk did not seem to be concerned about the group of people watching him and taking his photo. We spotted one male bluebird. I was very happy for this sighting. There used to be many bluebirds at the landll. When they cut the trees down and did major burns, the bluebird numbers diminished. Lou and Jan picked a beautiful day for this eld trip. It was not humid and the sky was a magnicent cerulean blue. A nice breeze kept our band of VABAites cool. We moved on down the road, driving slowly and stopping to get out when we spotted some birds. We enjoyed sighting palm warblers, great egrets, sandhill cranes, many sh crows and some American crows. Several more red-shouldered hawks were sighted high on poles. Mockingbirds, a logger head shrike and several anhingas ew overhead and also were in the trees. We stopped to see a bald eagle resting and preening on a branch. We see eagles many times but never tire of sighting these magnicent birds. The landll has a very high mound which we refer to as Venice Mountain. Above this mountain are always hundreds of black vultures, turkey vultures and laughing gulls ying in circles. Lou also sighted ring-billed gulls. Suddenly we noticed an immature eagle peering over the top of the mountain. I think he was observing our little VABA group. Mr. Eagle probably writes columns about birders for some other magazine. One of my favorite sightings of the day was a green heron. He was shing in a canal along the side of the road. Although he was well-camou aged, we all managed some great looks at him. Another neat sighting was a quick look at one of Dons favorite birds, a belted kingsher. This one had caught a huge insect and we watched as he downed it pure protein. We stopped at the pond, anticipating seeing the large group of wood storks that are usually feeding on the bank. They were not there, but we did spot great egrets, cattle egrets and a cormorant with a large sh he was trying to gulp down. We had to stay and watch this feat. He nally was successful and we cheered as we watched it go down his gullet. As we were leaving, one lone wood stork ew in. We never saw his buddies.

Whatever they decide, its a done deal. The Council and its advisory panels and committees try to address the concerns raised in their deliberations. So if we dont like the way its done to us, why dont you do something about it? The only way our management is going to change is if we get involved and steer it in a new direction. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. Thats just reality in these systems. Several events that could help us learn more about the processes and problems are coming up in St Petersburg soon. The Blue Ocean Film Festival & Conservation Summit starts Nov. 2. There are world-famous conservation, scien tic and Hollywood celebrities available to share their knowledge and passion to preserve and protect our oceans. A rare opportunity! The University of South Floridas St. Pete College of Marine Science has brought this unique world organization to us. Great job, folks. USF is also bringing the Guy Harvey Fisheries Symposium to St. Petersburg Nov. 13-15. Again, world leaders in marine shery management gather to share knowledge and experience while exploring networking opportunities. We are becoming a focal point in the under standing and management of world sheries. The Florida Marine Research Institute already wrote the book on aquaculture and stock enhancement protocols (literally) with major contributions from Mote Marine Lab and our states stock enhancement advisory board. This took decades of dedicated work by board members, FMRI sta, Mote sta, and the best experts available all working together to address the need for thought-out aquaculture guidelines. Stakeholders invested the time and energy to understand the challenges and solutions to enhancement and aquaculture issues. They are ready to start on the rst full-blown example for a sh hatchery near Pensacola, paid for with BP oil spill funds. Its a shame these important accomplishments receive very little press. Apparently junk is more newsworthy than these events and accomplishments. Who cares what crazy celebs are doing? The local shing is awesome, just like our recent weather. I cant tell you how long it will last, but I did try to pump you up to be ready. Enjoy this window, however long or short it may be. I also understand all too well that even the best-laid plans backre. I make it a point to try to keep my equipment in top shape, but unseen things catch us o guard. An unavoidable uke failure shut me down, but we got it xed. I got it back and started o strong. We did a lengthy test ride and one trip before it developed a new problem the upper switch for my engine bracket failed. No big deal and I was able to idle home. So we xed it and discovered a tiny pinhole leak in the pump housing. It didnt fail until the switch kept the system under pressure longer and forced out uids. So I was o the water over this beautiful fall weekend. Stu happens. Well, just as I expected, Im hearing all kinds of exciting catching reports from our area. Spanish and king mackerel are showing up as the waters clear up. I got several good reports from Venice to Boca Grande. Spanish are mixed with a few tarpon in upper Charlotte Harbor. Inside action from snook, reds and trout has red up with fair weather. There are plenty of baitsh, and its time to sh now. Its impossible to guess how long the hot action will last. It depends directly on if our weather cooperates. Fishing inshore and near shore will usually hold up until we get our rst very windy cold weather sometime in November. In 40 years, Ive seen this come considerably earlier or later. Milder fronts can actually help concentrate sh, improving action. Inside sh are moving shorter distances so we still have good action on these windy days. Outside gets rough and waters are stirred up by westerly winds. Migratory Gulf sh are looking for specic water temperatures and leave as it gets too cold. One other thing to consider: If you like mullet, its time to enjoy them now. They are fat and plentiful. Many of us like them fried; others may prefer them smoked. Try them barbecued or baked with Italian bread crumbs. Season to taste. If you like black ened sh, you need to try mullet! Because they are so moist, they are the best sh ever to blacken. They are as good as ever right now. By Thanksgiving, they will roe up and lose that tasty fat layer. Be sure you break the necks and bleed them out, then ice well immediately. The limit is only 50 sh, but that should take care of a dinner or two. Mullet are best fresh, so dont be stingy share with friends and family. Enjoy this special time. It wont last.Capt. Van Hubbard is a highly respected outdoor writer and shing guide.

Page 15 October 23, 2014 It was in the shing report, so it had to be true: Flounder on the beach on Manasota Key! Theres not much better than fresh ounder, so we headed up to give it a shot. Well, there were ounder, but our self-imposed size limit is 14 inches and none quite measured up. We caught a couple short pompano as well, plus a bunch of ladysh and one snook that chased down a silly jig at Mach 3. With nothing in the cooler and the sun sinking fast, we needed a dinner plan. Enter the Gulf View Grill. Wed had dinner there once before (family birthday a couple years back) and remembered it was pretty good. Plus it was close and the parking lot wasnt jammed to over owing. Win-win-win! We took the elevator up and were quickly seated near the back. The dining room layout allows for good views of the Gulf of Mexico from just about every table. Naturally, those with a window seat get a better look (call ahead). A quick perusal of the menu showed a good variety to choose from. I had just about settled on a piece of red meat, but the server had a special that quickly changed my mind. We ordered and waited for natures show. The sunset was just starting to color up as our soup landed on the table. She-crab soup is a low-country treat that has become popular in recent years. Gulf Views version is thick, rich and hearty, very much like a bisque but with a more intense crab avor. It also had chunks of tender potato and minced pieces of crab meat, which did not detract from the silky-smooth mouth feel. I like crackers in my soup, so I was glad to see it was served with a huge pile of quality oyster crackers, which I crushed and poured in. Up next were the stued mushrooms. Have you ever eaten an undercooked stued mushroom? Its one of my pet peeves, but fortunately these had been baked to full tenderness. The breadcrumb stung was intensely avorful, fairly bursting with sweet red pepper, onion, garlic and shreds of crabmeat. They came swimming in a decadently creamy cheese sauce. Its a good thing there was bread on the table, because I might have been a bit embarrassed slurping the sauce straight from the dish (not that it would have stopped me, though ). She ordered the Seafood Neptune, a mix of bay scallops, tailless shrimp and white sh topped with avorful crumbs, drenched in melted butter and baked to a slight crunch. Sometimes in these type of dishes the shrimp come out overdone and rubbery, but apparently this chef knows how to avoid that because everything was cooked without being Vulcanized. The casserole was served with delight fully crispy fries and a baked tomato slice covered in melted cheese and chopped basil (one must have some vegetables, after all). And then there was the irresistible special: Hogsh with crab stung. If youve never eaten hogsh, its a mild and sweet white sh thats just about perfect. The llet had been sauted very simply and topped with generous chunks of sweet crab meat, sun-dried tomato and a tangy cream sauce. What a fantastic piece of sh. I could eat this every night for a month, maybe two. The interplay between the caramelized sh and the delicate crab, with the sauce to mingle the avors, was simply excellent. The garlic mashed potatoes were good, but I can hardly recall them because the sh was so memorable. After so rich a meal, I felt guilty taking the elevator back down ( really should have done the stairs), but then we went for a moonlit walk on the beach. Perfect.

Page 16 October 23, 2014 Page 16 October 23, 2014 Last weeks wildlife rescue class taught by some of Peace River Wildlife Centers rescue volunteers was a rousing success and not a moment too soon. Life has indeed been a little wild lately at PRWC. We recently admitted an injured adult male bobcat that had been hit by a car. The gentleman traveling in the car behind the one that hit the wayward feline saw the cat y 6 feet in the air. When it landed on the road, he knew it would get hit again if he didnt act quickly. He scooped up the unconscious cat, loaded it into his trunk, and made a beeline to PRWC. Of course, the cat was awake by the time he arrived, so our intrepid rehabber, Cara Brown, had to wrestle the unhappy cat out of the trunk and into a large dog kennel. While we applaud this rescuers bravado, we cannot condone his actions. He could have been seriously hurt. Any mammal should be considered a possible rabies vector species and handled only by trained (and vaccinated) personnel. This rule is for the protection of the people involved as well as the animal. Had this man been scratched or bitten, even inadver tently, the bobcat would have to have been euthanized so it could be tested for rabies. And the man would have had to get a painful and expensive series of injections. If anyone sees an injured mammal and wants to remove it from its immediate environment due to concerns about its safety, the best course of action is to call Charlotte County Animal Control at 941-833-5690 or PRWC at 941-637-3830. Of course, it can take a while for either party to get to a remote location. The next best plan would be to use gloves or a towel to move the animal so that there is no direct contact with skin. Contain the animal if at all possible place it into a box or put a laundry hamper or trash can over it. If you cannot load it into your car and bring it to PRWC (or your nearest wildlife rehabili tator), place it in a dark, quiet location with a moderate temperature (not too hot or too cold) until assistance arrives. It is our hope that with many more rescue volunteers, PRWCs response time can be dramatically reduced. Now that the public service portion of this column is over, Id like to say HOW COOL WAS THAT?! Exxon used to promise to put a tiger in your tank if you used their gas. This guy did the next best thing, putting a bobcat in his trunk. I dont know if it had much of an eect on his cars acceleration, but it sure increased the responsiveness of the sta at PRWC and energized everyone who has been following the story on our Facebook page. The bobcat ended up with some super cial scrapes and bruises. He had minor head trauma that resolved fairly quickly, hence the attempt to leap out of the car trunk. He does have a broken jaw that had an external xation appliance applied at a local veterinar ians oce. Hes now recovering o-exhibit at the Wildlife Center of Venice, a facility with better caging for a large, strong mammal like a bobcat. The cats mental state appears to be completely normal now he snarls and lunges at his caretakers, just as he ought. As soon as his jaw has healed, the bobcat will be released back into the area where he was found, near the site of his capture. Just not back into the middle of the road. If cats really do have nine lives, this guy has eight left and we would like to see him live them out calmly and quietly, well away from trac.Peace River Wildlife Center is a nonprot organization, dedicated to the care, preservation and protection of Charlotte Countys native wildlife since 1978.

Page 17 October 23, 2014 Page 17 October 23, 2014 If you love her, let her goReviving a snook after an intense battle and watching it swim away is one of the most personal moments you can have with a sh in the wild. There is something very rewarding about supporting a large linesider in the water, with your thumb and forenger of one hand gripping its mouth, and the other hand supporting its belly from underneath. Whether youre wading the ats or the surf, leaning over the side of your boat or the side of the seawall, its just you, the snook and sound of the water. You admire the sh, recalling the ght this worthy contender has just put up: The jumping. The head-shaking. The dragpeeling runs. You look at it and wonder what its thinking. Does it know youre trying to help it, or is it scared to death? You note the size of its eyes, its color, the thick black line running down its side, its hulking shoulders, sloping forehead and protruding lower jaw. You marvel at this powerful yet streamlined predator, near the top of the saltwater food chain. You want it to survive. Sometimes revival is a quick process and the sh starts to kick within 30 seconds. But other times, when over-slot giants have completely worn themselves down, it can be a drawn-out ordeal that leaves you wondering if the sh is going to make it. At rst the snook may seem quite lifeless, barely able to keep itself upright and rolling onto its side in the water. Revival seems hope less, out of reach. But you persevere. You turn the snooks head into the current, letting the water ow over its gills to provide the oxygen that is the lifeblood of these sh. You slowly guide it back and forth, waiting for it to give you that telltale sign of life. Finally, after what seems like an eternity three minutes, maybe ve? you feel the shs lips clamp down gently on your ngers, snook language for letting you know its ghting to stay alive. Then it starts to kick; subtly at rst but then with increasing power, telling you its time for release. With a nal gentle push, you send the snook out of your world and back into hers, watching intently as her back and then her tail slip silently below the surface and out of sight. While we anglers have a tendency to get caught up in the catch, sometimes its the release that weve been craving. Until next time, hook em up and ght em hard. Fish on, fellow anglers.Matt Stevens is an avid saltwater angler and an award-winning outdoor writer. His writing is dedicated to all types of shore-bound angling in Charlotte Harbor and the surrounding waters. Email him at mstevens@sun-herald.com. THE MAN ON THE PIER MATT STEVENS A SAFE RELEASE Dont play the sh while youre ghting it to tire it out. In other words, reel it in as quickly as possible. Never pick a large snook up by the lips alone; always support it underneath its belly as well. Keep the pit stop the time from when you remove the sh from the water until you get it back in to a minimum. Shoot for less than a minute. Always have a pair of needle-nose pliers handy for deep-hooked sh. Extract the hook or hooks as carefully as possible. Use a slow, steady pressure with your pliers, not a quick jerking motion. When a large sh is obviously fatigued from the ght, plan on reviving it for as long as it takes to get it healthy enough to swim away; this can take anywhere from 30 seconds to ve minutes. The bigger the sh, the longer this usually takes. To revive a snook, point its head into the current. Keep the thumb and forenger of one hand on its lower (or upper) lip and the other hand underneath it. You can gently move it back and forth, too. Wait until you see obvious signs the sh is ready biting down on your ngers or starting to kick noticeably before letting it swim away. rf rrntbbbf COASTAL FISHING COASTAL COASTAL FISHING COASTAL LAKE FISHING CHARTS LAKE FISHING CHARTS STANDARD NAVIGATION CHARTS STANDARD NAVIGATION CHARTS INSHORE FISHING CHARTS INSHORE FISHING CHARTS LARGE PRINT CHARTS LARGE PRINT CHARTS 50475036 -THE ORIGINAL-WATERPROOF CHARTS////// ///IIPISHORE1CUSTOM oCHART ;FRAMINGo,aCall 941-429-3110.1to list your boat today!r-^.J Pa I I!

Page 18 October 23, 2014 Page 18 October 23, 2014 Last time we talked a little bit about quail hunting in our area. Lets start o with some opportunities in our area to hunt quail even if you dont have a lot of equipment or bird dogs. There are some young fellows in Fort Ogden that have a hunt service called Locklear Hunting and Guide Service (863-244-1010). These are local guys who grew up around here and know their way around the atwoods palmetto and piney-woods scrub. They oer several hunt options, but quail hunts are a specialty. If you have dogs, you can use your own; if not, they supply dogs and pretty much everything else that is necessary. They use some pen-raised birds but also have a pretty good number of wild birds on their hunt property. The feedback I have gotten on these guys so far is very positive. If you want to travel a little ways and try a taste of real high-end quail hunting, you can also contact Quail Creek Plantation located over by Okeechobee and check out their program. Back in the old days, quail were quite plentiful in most areas of the South. Nobody back in the s or s gave much thought to quail management. Didnt need to there were a lot of birds, a lot of untouched habitat, plenty of food, and everything was happy, happy, happy. Well, times have changed. Nationwide, bobwhite quail numbers have fallen more than 80 percent since 1967. Hunters have mostly turned their attention to other types of quail hunting, such as pursuing pen-raised birds on shooting preserves or, more recently, managing local wild populations and adding in some pen-raised birds released early in the season. But pen-raised quail, no matter how conditioned to the wild, dont act like wild birds. They dont challenge a bird dog anywhere near as much as wild birds, dont run like wild birds, dont y like wild birds, and certainly dont ush like wild birds.

Page 19 October 23, 2014 Page 19 October 23, 2014 nothing wrong with hunting pen-raised birds, but the dogs and the hunters and the handlers all know the dierence. Quail management was nonexistent back in those days of old when the birds were virtually everywhere. Its not like that anymore, due mostly to loss of habitat for development, agriculture, timber harvesting and a host of other things. It took a while, but nally people started realizing we were losing a valuable part of our southern hunting heritage with these severely declining numbers of Gentleman Bob White. Just like in many of our other hunting and shing declines, theres more than one thing to blame, but the fact remains that by the 1980s and s bobwhite were fast becoming an endangered bird. What to do? In our area we are fortunate to have a cooperative hookup between the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Quail Forever, a group dedicated to saving the wild quail. After my last column, I was contacted by Scott Ford Sr., president of Quail Forevers Southwest Florida chapter. He put me into touch with a fellow named Nigel Morris. He also gets a lot of help from his sons, both of whom are guides and avid hunters, and another gentleman named Jack Waterworth. Not only do these guys enjoy the thrill of hunting wild quail, they are totally dedicated to helping maintain the stock of wild birds in our wildlife management areas. Another guy that I hunt with named Henry Shakeshaft has also been very active and helpful with data gathering over the years. We in this area are extremely fortunate that the cooperation between Quail Forever and the FWC has led to a very healthy wild quail population in the Babcock/Webb Wildlife Management Area. This hasnt been easy. Great results are never experienced quickly they take a lot of time and eort and resources. Mike Kimmer and his troops from FWC care for this 65,000 acres of undeveloped Florida heri tage and are the driving force in what keeps this treasured land nearly like it was when our forefathers experienced it in times gone by. Mike is the head honcho (not his real title) who makes things happen in this management area. Along with the help from Quail Forever, his sta handles the controlled burns and planting of sesbania plants that help carry the baby quail through the hard times. The quail feed not only on the plants seeds but also the insects that eat the foliage. What factors are important in maintaining a healthy wild quail population? A place called Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy has been in existence for a long time and is pretty much the source of guide lines that organizations across the South use in their struggle to maintain and increase wild quail populations. And theyve got it down to a science. To have quail you must grow quail, and to grow quail you must grow quail food. Tall Timbers recommends 2to 5-acre patches of protein-rich plants like partridge pea, ragweed or gallberries. The Webbs extensive patches of sesbania are planted in strips about 10 feet wide. While I was out on a quail counting expedition with Nigel, he showed me several other plantings I was not aware of, such as lopsided Indian grass, which produces a berry that young quail love. Nigel says that when the birds eat the seeds, they turn a grayish color and look like the birdshot that you red at them. Many private plantations involved in quail restoration work feed the birds directly in areas that quail are known to frequent. In some situations, state laws forbid this, but on private plantations its pretty much up to them and birds are fed year-round. Quail do not ourish in hardwood forests or thick pine vegetation. The area must be burned regularly. Controlled burning clears out young hardwoods and allows a ush of seedand insect-laden grasslands and brambles to thrive. Some of the hardwoods are very persistent, however, and sometimes herbicides are required to knock them down. With the land kept relatively open and the numbers of quail, turkeys, rabbits, and other grassland species on the rise, egg predator numbers skyrocket. Predator control is a very important piece of the puzzle. Most of your ground varmints like raccoons, possums and armadillos prey on the young quail or quail eggs. Just last year, about 70 coyotes were removed from the Webb during hunting season. Good thing. Small-game season allows a harvest of many of these other small predators that are a real detriment to quail population. The Webbs quail hunting areas are sepa rated into zones. With the quail counting operation, by the time season opens FWC and Quail Forever will have a very good idea of how many quail are on the property and the density in each of the separate zones. In this way, they can control the amount of hunting pressure that is allowed in each of these zones. They also will then be able to provide a total quota that will allow a good hunting season but ensure enough birds survive to maintain and grow the population. Many hunters prefer certain zones. Prior success, rumors and other reasons sometimes cause them to want to hunt a particular zone all the time, but in reality, all zones hold good bird populations. If a hunter is assigned one of the zones that hes not happy with, studies have proven that he wont do as well in these areas not because there arent birds, but because he wont work it as hard as he would if he was in his happy zone. Many of the bird locators and trackers watch this happen and chuckle when a hunter pulls some supposedly good bird dogs o of an area that he doesnt like when the bird locators know that there are sucient coveys in this singular area. You must learn to be patient and let the dogs do the job. Just being allowed to accompany Nigel on an early-morning bird count was very educational to me. Ive hunted quail in Florida for least 30 years, and in this one morning I learned a lot of things that are crucial to being a good quail hunter. It takes years to acquire the wealth of knowledge about this little bird that people like Nigel have.

The sun and moon, even when they are out of sight, exert forces wild creatures can feel. These forces aect when sh and other animals feed. Weather and tide also play a role, but expect sh to be more active during the major and minor solunar times. When you sh in team tournaments, youre always thrilled when your back-boater is catching bass. In my case, its a double-edged sword. My partner in the team tournaments is my wife Missy, and when she puts it on me, I have to live with that for a month until the next event comes around. She did it to me again this past tournament. Did you catch that? Again. This was not the rst time she has put a beating on me from the back of the boat. She outshed me six to one this past event, and she was throwing the same bait in the same areas that I was. All I can say is, good for her. We were shing heavy cover using Gambler Big EZ swimbaits, and that was tough sledding. She handled it like a champ and made the most of her opportunities. I, on the other hand, couldnt get a bite to save my life. While I was up front, wearing out my rotator cu chucking my swimbait around, my lovely wife was snatching bass after bass out of the hydrilla. That was a tad humbling right there. I love that type of shing and have always thrived on it in the past. But not this time. I managed one bite over the course of three hours. That was a little disappointing. Every time we moved the boat a little bit or hit a new area, Missy was setting the hook on another bass. I made numerous casts into the same areas but just never got bit. I have to admit, she has gone through a tough stretch in our tournaments, so it was truly rewarding to see her boat some decent bass over the course of those morning hours. I had one golden opportunity to really help our cause. At about 11 a.m., we moved to a stretch of cattails at the far side of the lake and started pitching baits in the scattered clumps of cattails on this stretch. I pitched my worm into an open area and felt a bass pick it up just as it settled out of sight, but before it hit the bottom. I so badly wanted this bass that I started to swing the rod and set the hook. As I was swinging the rod, the reel was not yet engaged. Unfortunately, I made a huge rookie mistake I missed the reel handle with my right hand. So while I frantically grabbed at the reel handle and attempted to keep the line tight, the bass was moving at me. Needless to say, I did not get the hook set on this sh. To make matters worse, we were pitching shallow at the time, so I got to see the bass swimming just below the surface of the water with my bait before he decided he didnt need it any longer. It wasnt a giant, maybe 4 or 5 pounds, but it would have made a dent in the standings if I could have gotten the job done. Call it a lack of preparedness on my part. After receiving so few bites throughout the morning, I simply wasnt ready to catch that bass. But I was really happy for Missy. I had to step out of the boat and leave my lovely partner to nish the tournament on her own (yeah, I had to go coach soccer long story for some other time). While the bite had slowed considerably by then, she had a limit in the boat already and handled the rest of the day like a true champ. She needed a little assistance getting the boat back on the trailer, but my buddies from the club knew the situ ation and my son came down to the ramp to help her out. All in all, a great day for her. I feel very fortunate to have a wife who loves shing and boating as much as I do. It gives us a chance to get away and spend some time together for long hours in a day or over a weekend. Not every couple wants to spend this kind of time together. Some see it as a chance to take a break, a time to do something for themselves. There is nothing wrong with that line of thinking, but for me, its just fun to have her along because we are so much alike and love the same things. I would be happier with a few less beatings, however. The hurt from this one will take some time to go away.Greg Bartz is a tournament bass sherman based in Lakeland.

Page 23 October 23, 2014 BOATING SAFETY MARK & LEIGH ANN LONG nor any drop to drink! This line was penned by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, an extensive ode of peril and nautical adventure. It was true for boaters then and still is today. Drinkable water is a provision that should not be taken lightly, wherever you boat. Dehydration is as easy to detect and avoid as it is to ignore, if you choose. To clarify, it can be ignored only it until it overwhelms you which it will. Your body can go more than three weeks without food, yet a mere three to ve days (a generous estimate) without hydration will kill you. That time can be reduced signicantly when heat and wind are a factor. When the wind is evaporating perspiration, you may not even realize you are losing signicant amounts of body uid. It is possible to lose more than a liter an hour. Dehydration is uncomfortable at best and deadly at worst, and should be avoided if at all possible. There are multiple indicators of dehydration, thirst being the most obvious. But if its windy or youre a mouth-breather due to sinus or allergy issues, you may not notice any dierence from normal. Feeling no need to urinate is probably the most signicant indicator. How long has it been since you drained your personal holding tank? If its been a few hours, youve got trouble. Urine that is dark is also a sign, but urine color is dicult to assess if you arent using an actual boat head. Other signs and symptoms of dehydration are palpitations (rapid heart rate) or dry eyes and lips. The human body needs water to maintain adequate blood pressure. Therefore, dehy dration leads to decrease in blood pressure and increase in heart rate, light-headedness, disorientation and eventually unconsciousness. We also need sucient hydration to maintain a normal body temperature. Perspiration is our best defense to overheating, but it ceases without water. If you have any underlying health issues, you are even more susceptible to the phys ical impacts of becoming dehydrated. As a safety issue, being compromised physically or mentally while boating is risky for all aboard. Prevention is so easy. Just drink plenty of water prior to going boating and be sure drink water regularly while youre out there. I make a point of drinking lots of water the night before and morning before we plan to be on the water, to assure I am leaving the dock adequately hydrated. I know this is a dicult task, especially for women on a boat without a head or porta potty. But its better to go when you must than to become dehydrated. And dont forget to take all your cans and bottles home and recycle them.Mark Long and his wife Leigh Ann are longtime boaters and active members in the Peace River Sail and Power Squadron. They can be contacted at PRSPSBoatSafe@ gmail.com.Water, water everywhere Photo providedDont let the lack of a head keep you from staying hydrated.

Page 24 October 23, 2014 LOBSTER BANDIT FACES HIGH BONDA Miami man who has been arrested multiple times for having undersized lobster tails is behind bars once again and could have a tough time getting out after his bond was set at $1.4 million. Jorge Vargas, 59, was arrested Saturday after he was caught with more than 200 undersized lobster tails near Fiesta Key Marina, the Monroe County Sheris Oce said. A deputy spotted Vargas in a boat pulling traps and putting lobster tails into mesh bags, the sheris oce said. When the deputy stopped him, Vargas had 267 wrung tails, with 246 of them undersized. Vargas was cited for possession of undersized lobster, possession of over the limit lobster and possession of wrung lobster tails. Authorities said Vargas has been cited twice in the past three years for possession of over 300 wrung tails and possessing stone crab out of season. The bond was set at $1.4 million after a warrant was issued Monday for failure to appear in court for a previous case from 2011, authorities said.SHARK FISHING BAN FAILSFishermen can still cast and chum for sharks o Melbourne Beach. By a 4-to-1 vote Wednesday, the Melbourne Beach Town Council tabled a proposal to ban shing for or chumming for sharks within 300 feet of the beach, with no plans to revisit the issue. Mayor Jim Simmons, who had pushed for the ordinance, cast the dissenting vote. I wanted to go on and move forward and tighten up the ordinance and come up with some thing we could defend, Simmons said. But the council balked on the ban after Police Chief Dan Duncan raised concerns about whether it was enforceable. Simmons acknowledged shortcomings in the ordinance. There were no denitions on what constituted shark shing, so we needed to dene that, and we needed to dene what municipal beach was, Simmons said. The proposed ordinance on Wednesday nights agenda also would have strictly prohibited use of shark lures and rigs within 300 feet of the beach. And all accidental shark catches would have to have been cut loose. Simmons says on several occasions he has witnessed anglers shing for sharks near swimmers and surfers. Violators of the proposed ordinance would have faced nes up to $500 and/or up to 60 days in jail per violation, said Paul Gougelman, the towns attorney.DONT BLAME THE SHARKAustralian teenager Kirra-Belle Olsson posted photos on Facebook of the injuries she sustained in a shark attack on Friday, as she made it clear it was not the sharks fault. The 13-year-old Rip Curl-sponsored surfer was bitten on the leg by a wobbegong shark while surng at Avoca Beach, on the central coast of New South Wales. She was about 50 feet from shore when she said she dropped in on the shark, meaning she caught the sharks wave. I took the wave and then I twice felt something grab my foot, and I thought it was a mate behind me trying to scare me, Olsson told ABC News. Then the third time it (the shark) swung me around and tried to pull me under. After that, she went into shock and started laughing while yelling at a friend to make sure he captured photos of the ordeal. Not long after the attack, the teens Facebook account showed graphic photos of her wounds, with the caption got attacked by a shark. Olsson, with a maturity well beyond her years that would put Shark Week out of business, followed up with a post telling people to respect the amazing sharks. She was admitted to Gosford Hospital where she underwent surgery on the deep wounds to her calf and ankle.NO STONE CRAB BARGAINSFlorida stone crab prices could remain high even as there is some indication the harvest may be larger, the Tampa Bay Times reports. The lessened threat of a red tide-triggered blood disease may help boost harvests, as would lack of tropical storm interference during the harvest, Bill Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association, told the news outlet. If we dont have any storms, we are fairly upbeat that it will be a productive season, he said, noting that concerns about the blood disease have abated but still exist in the Panhandle (where he also said there is a lingering question about whether theres any correlation in northern gulf (crab numbers) and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill). Steve Crowley at Billys Stone Crab Restaurant told the news outlet prices could be $10 for a pound of medium claws o the dock and more than $19 for large and jumbo sizes, a slight increase over last year.EU BANS SRI LANKAN FISH(Reuters) The European Commission proposed a ban on imports of sh from Sri Lanka for not tackling illegal shing properly and lifted a ban on sh imports from Belize following the reform of its vessel inspection practices. The Commission on Tuesday also lifted warnings on Fiji, Panama, Togo and Vanuatu, saying they had implemented concrete measures to combat illegal shing. The four countries thus avoided being placed on the red list of nations that are not allowed to sell sh to the 28-nation European Union, the worlds biggest sh importer. Our policy of resolute cooperation is yielding results, EU Maritime Aairs Commissioner Maria Damanaki said in a statement. Five countries receive today our appreciation for getting serious on illegal shing. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for Sri Lanka. Since 2010 the EU has taken action against countries that do not follow international standards to prevent over-shing, such as policing their waters for unlicensed shing vessels and imposing sanctions to ensure adherence to rules against illegal shing. Damanaki said Sri Lanka did not even have proper legislation in place to prevent and ght illegal shing, which led the Commission to put forward the import ban.THE BIGGEST FOR NOWThe vessel that now holds the title of the worlds biggest ship has taken to the seas for the rst time. Called Pieter Schelte, the behemoth can lift oil rigs right out of the water and move them to new destinations. It measures a stag gering 1,253 feet long and 407 feet wide, making it almost as long as the Empire State Building is tall and wider than the height of Londons Big Ben. It cost $3.1 billion to build and is powered by eight 11.2 megawatt engines connected to 13 Rolls Royce 5.5 megawatt thrusters, reports Gizmodo. The ship is designed to lift and transport both the top and bottom sections of massive oil rigs. The vessel, which will be operated by Swiss company Allseas, is expected to begin oshore operations next year. Pieter Schelte will only hold the title of the worlds biggest ship for six years, though; by 2020 Allseas expects to have an even larger vessel in operation to install and move bigger oil rigs.NOT AT ALL RELEVANT, BUT FUNNYKnock, knock.
