Sharon Nehs recently purchased a 2007 Toyota Prius from a private individual. The Port Charlotte seller said the cars recorded title declared it rebuilt, but only had a small tap on the front fender and repaired. But a month after purchasing it, the 75-year-old Punta Gorda resident said the car died. Sharon then ordered a CarFax vehicle history report, admitting she should have done it before buying the car. It showed it had been declared junk and salvage in California, Sharon wrote me. We spoke to (the seller) in person and he refused to help. There were several other cars in his driveway that he is xing up. Who can help us? Buying a used vehicle is difcult enough. But when you go through a private party, your antenna should be at full mast. Thats because since private sellers are not covered by the FTCs used car rule, which requires a posted buyers warranty guide, the sale is on an "as is" basis and youre on your own, literally the second you drive off with the vehicle. Furthermore, Floridas Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles only investigates dealers, not private individuals. However, since this seller was xing up other vehicles, I made Sharon aware that DHSMV can investigate whether an individual is operating as an unlicensed dealer. Somehow, knowing that got her $1,000 in cash to repair the car. This is less about whether someone was possibly illegally selling cars, and more about what buyers like Sharon need to do before buying any used vehicle, especially from a private party. If you remember two takeaways from this column, its to get the vehicles history and a thorough inspection from a reliable independent mechanic before buying from a private party or dealer. Neither will guarantee zero problems, but its more assuring than verbal promises from the seller. Part of that assurance comes from the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System, designed to prevent concealing a vehicles history. In addition to verifying odometer readings, the NMVTS database provides insurance total-loss records, thefts and accidents reported to the police, whether the vehicles title is recorded as a salvage or ood-damage title and if the vehicle is rebuildable. Thats good to know after the recent ooding in Arizona. For a small fee, NMVTS gives you access to this data through governmentapproved vendors at www.vehiclehistory. gov. At no charge you can determine whether a vehicle is reported stolen but not recovered at the National Insurance Crime Bureaus site, And at, you can learn if recall repairs have been made. Companies like CarFax and Experian AutoCheck include much of this data in their reports, and add other information, including number of owners and if the vehicle was in a rental eet. And just because you may be looking at a certied used car, Consumer Reports, says insist on a free CarFax or AutoCheck report and also do your own due diligence using the websites above. Finally, read the used car guide at and get a peachy used vehicle, because Floridas Lemon Law only covers new ones.

Check before buying used vehicle PUNTA GORDA Republican Party leaders turned out in full force Thursday to support Gov. Rick Scott who was on the stump in downtown Punta Gorda urging supporters to get out the early vote. Flanked by state Sen. Lisbeth Benacquisto, Rep. Ken Roberson and Mayor Rachel Keesling, Scott didnt stray much from his campaign message of job creation and economic development except to jab his Democratic opponent. Charlie Crist, powerless for the jobless, Scott boomed to a room full of laughter. I grew up in a family who struggled for work, I grew up in public housing, I didnt even know my natural Dad. I learned very early, jobs are important. Its hard to live the dream of America without a job, he said. Harking back to former Republican candidate Mitt Romneys failed presidential bid in 2012, Scott urged supporters to get their votes in early. Elections in Florida are not won by landslides, Scott said. Every vote matters. As the race for governor enters the homestretch toward the November nish line, both parties are busy getting out the vote. In Charlotte County, Democrats are working the phone lines and knocking on doors despite the countys Scott on the stump in Punta GordaBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERSCOTT | 10 SARASOTA COUNTY On Wednesday night, one Woodland Middle School teacher posted on his personal Facebook page that he hadnt been able to access his district email account for two days. Email still wasnt operable Thursday, but after several days of computer issues, Sarasota County School District staff expressed hope the problems would be resolved by today. Its still not available, district spokesman Scott Ferguson said late Thursday afternoon. But theres no school (today) for students, since its a professional day. We hope to have everything up and running for employees, but we do have a little padding to get things ready for students on Monday. Issues began Tuesday morning, when even Sarasota County School Board members were told not to power up their iPads during a workshop, and staff thought board members might not be able to vote electronically during their afternoon meeting. District staff were initially told not to turn on any of their devices and to shut everything down until more was known about the problem. Email is one if the issues Sarasota school district struggles with computer issuesBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMKPERSTAFF WRITERCOMPUTER | 10 Candidates for local political ofces in Charlotte County learned this week they can no longer post signs outside any county property where early voting is being held. In prior election years, candidates were allowed to post a few signs in medians and a respective distance from the polls. A Charlotte County code enforcement ofcer picked up campaign signs near Charlotte Countys West County Annex earlier this week for Englewood Area Fire Control District commissioner candidate Jeff Kern, who is running for re-election, and his challenger, Ron Benedetti. Both candidates said code enforcement returned the signs the next day. The re board candidates arent being singled out. Candidates and their supporters can still hold signs outside of polls. They just cant stick the signs in the ground on any county properties. Charlotte County Commissioner Stephen R.

The Englewood Area Athletic Association is out more than $2,300 after cash went missing earlier this month from an ofce safe at Ann Dever Memorial Regional Park, home to Pop Warners Englewood Cats teams. The EAAA the body that elds the Cats youth football and cheerleading squads enlisted the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce to help nd the money. So far, no dough. There is an investigation ongoing, said Englewoods district commander Lt. Darrell Caparo. But I cannot release any information.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C The Sun /Friday, October 24, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS SARASOTA COUNTY Sarasota County School Board members hope their support will encourage the Sarasota County Commission to extend a moratorium on education system impact fees. During their regular meeting earlier this week, board members unanimously approved a request to ask the commission for a one-year extension of the moratorium. The current moratorium, which expires Dec. 14, was initially adopted in December 2012. The impact fees help fund new construction of schools and other facilities. During the morning workshop, also held Tuesday, District Long Range Planner Kathie Ebaugh told the board a new growth management methodology study is needed to help determine whether the impact fees are necessary, since the last one the district conducted is 10 years old, and many things have changed, including the number of school options available for families. Even if the study were just to examine impact fees, that portion alone would take between three and six months. Also, there was a change to the state statute on impact fees in 2011, and our local conditions have changed in 10 years, she said. Weve had a change in development patterns. At the meeting, two people spoke against the moratorium, including Dan Lobeck, a Sarasota attorney and president of Control Growth Now, who said the change shouldnt be made with out a public hearing. I understand builders and developers are generous to the School Board, but decisions should be made about whats good for school children, and we need that impact fee money for next year, he said, adding some impact fee money could be used for the North Port campus of the Sarasota County Technical Institute. It has been suggested the (growth management) study is out of date. A consultant can just plug in new data. Ken Marsh, who is seeking election to the boards District 1 seat and, prior to his retirement was, for 11 years, the districts longrange planner, spoke in favor of the moratorium. I want to reject the contention that board members are swayed by board member contributions. Some of my largest donors are local developers, and theyre supporting me despite what Im going to say, he said, adding the study is necessary. Board members were also in favor of the study and extension of the moratorium. Im a little offended, board member Shirley Brown said, about the comments that board members would vote for developers rather than citizens. The law has changed, and local conditions must be included in the study. We have charter schools and need to know how that applies. The study will help us get where we need to be. Im going to vote for this, Board Chair Jane Goodwin said. We need to be thoughtful in making decisions, because developers do pass these dollars on to those buying homes.Email: annek@sun-herald.comSarasota School Board votes to maintain impact fee moratoriumBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER SARASOTA COUNTY County Commissioners approved the third and nal round of changes to the controversial longrange 2050 development plan this week, following a seven-hour hearing that featured three hours of public comment from citizens who mostly felt the changes would harm Sarasota County. The 2050 plan is mainly aimed at areas east of Interstate 75, and regulates housing types and densities along with changing restrictions for developers looking to build new communities. The plan operates under the concept of new urbanism, which involves building small, walkable communities with homes, jobs and businesses. Likely the most controversial aspect are changes to the so-called scal neutrality component on the 2050 plan. Fiscal neutrality, as previously written, requires developers to shoulder the burden of public costs, including roads and other infrastructure, prior to their development being approved. The developers had to demonstrate that the project was scally neutral during all stages of development, including its earliest stages. The changes keep the burden of public costs in place, but change the frequency at which they have to prove their project is scally neutral. An independent analysis of scal neutrality showed that achieving neutrality was difcult when the project was in its infancy stages, according to county planning staff. But, according to Dan Lobeck, president and co-founder of Control Growth Now, the changes to scal neutrality are making matters worse for county taxpayers, by not providing the same protections that existed previously. Lobeck accused commissioners of being recruited and ultimately bankrolled by big-money developers, hiding under the guise of providing affordable housing, which is one of the tenets of the 2050 plan. A lot of us today feel like the students in Hong Kong, Lobeck said this week, referencing recent protests in China. Were simply speaking to an unresponsive government. Commissioners voted unanimously for a majority of the changes, although some 4-1 votes were spread through many of the decisions that were made, including dissention from Nora Patterson, who didnt agree with some of the scal neutrality components. Commissioner Joe Barbetta pointed to the amount of work and money pumped into the 2050 revisions including $4 million and 17 public meetings going back to January 2013 as an example of how serious the commission took the issue and how much hard work has been put into it by staff. Development will occur out east, regardless, but without the 2050 plan it will be the kind of development that brought around the 2050 plan in the rst place, Barbetta said. The methodology for scal neutrality is still a work in process, and will likely be back in front of commissioners some time in the next few months after work is completed by an outside consultant. The consultants report will likely come in after both Pattersons and Barbettas terms end with the general election in November. The plan was adopted in 2002, but commissioners voted in 2011 to revisit it. Patterson was critical of the previous scal neutrality plan, saying that it wasnt much more than a piece of paper.

The Sun /Friday, October 24, 2014 E/N/C Our Town Page 5 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS OK. Sing along. Sunny days are here again. After a few cloudy days, the sun is expected to be back in full force. And yes, thank you, dryness, too. Jennifer Hubbard, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said residents of the region can expect a sunny weekend with a little drier air, and no rain. The weekend forecast, and it is sweet: Sunny skies with highs in the low 80s and overnight lows in lower 60s. Some cloudy conditions for the past few days should get pushed out for the weekend, Hubbard said. Temperatures are pretty much typical for this time of year. Hubbard added that Tropical Depression 9 over the Yucatan Peninsula had caused some of the damp air that residents experienced earlier in the week. But now that has broken up as it has moved inland, and theres just the remnants. That should pull that moisture away from us, she said. Its going to be a nice weekend, Hubbard said. More dryness, a lack of rain will make it nice. Beat it, clouds, the sun is back STAFF REPORT ENGLEWOOD Very low concentrations of red tide algae have been detected at Englewood Beach, according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report Wednesday. Its typical of every fall, said Alina Cororan, a researcher FWCs Harmful Algal Bloom Research subsection. Researchers expect blooms in late summer and during the fall. The water sample at Englewood Beach was the only sample collected from Sarasota, Charlotte and Lee County waters with traces of red tide. To date this season, larger red tide blooms in the Gulf have been generally limited to north of Tampa and St. Petersburg. However, Cororan said the FWC has been tracking for several weeks a patch of red tide offshore from Sanibel. According to FWC research, red tide algae Karenia brevis propagate 20 to 40 miles offshore in the Gulf, but can be blown by winds and carried by currents close to shore. Winds and currents can cause red tide blooms to release toxins when the algal cells break up due to wave action. Researchers deem the natural background presence of the red tide algae as levels of 1,000 cells or less per liter of water. Very low counts are more than 1,000 cells to fewer than 5,000 cells per liter. Red tide can cause sh kills and respiratory irritations in humans when levels exceed 100,000 cells or more of the algae concentrated in a liter of water.

Source: the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions Fish and Wildlife Research Wildlife Institute at SARASOTA Three complaints were led with the Florida Election Commission alleging a Sarasota County School Board member solicited campaign donations from district employees while they were on the job. According to a letter from the Sarasota Classied Teachers Association union, School Board member and candidate Bridget Ziegler allegedly solicited campaign contributions from school district employees while they were at school. Florida Statutes prohibit people from soliciting political contributions in a building owned by a governmental entity, said election law attorney Ronald Meyer. Ziegler was appointed to the School Board in June by Gov. Rick Scott after longtime board member Carol Todd resigned to be with an ailing family member. According to the complaint to the Florida Election Commission, Ziegler repeatedly solicited employees for donations using the school districts email system. These employees reasonably assumed that, because these emails were coming from a sitting School Board member, they dealt with ofcial School Board business, said Meyer. They opened these emails on that premise, while at school and while on duty, and only then learned these emails were solicitations for contributions to the Ziegler campaign. School board members oversee and ultimately employ the employees being asked to contribute money. Some may understandably feel they are being coerced to give money or would suffer job repercussions if they did not. Ziegler could not be reached for comment.Campaign complaints filed against School Board memberSTAFF REPORT ZIEGLERCHARLOTTE Joseph W. Galgano Jr.Joseph W.

The woman who was shot this week inside a trailer at Charlotte Harbor RV Park remained in the intensive care unit at Lee Memorial Hospital late Thursday, according to a hospital representative. Two other people died in Tuesdays incident at 4838 Tamiami Trail. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce SWAT team responded after a someone called 911 about a domestic disturbance involving gunshots around 5:30 a.m. A woman who had been shot and four children were rescued from the scene in an armored vehicle. Authorities said the womans condition was very serious when she was own from the scene. After 10 a.m., SWAT members entered the trailer where the shooting took place, they found a man and a woman dead. The sheriffs ofce Thursday still had not named anyone involved, given their relationships or said who shot whom. Neighbors said a man, his wife, his girlfriend and four kids had been living in the trailer at the park for about eight months. They said the man had several guns. The sheriffs investigation continues.RV park shooting victim remains hospitalizedSTAFF REPORT The State Attorneys Ofce on Thursday charged Dwayne Johnson, 32, of Port Charlotte, with one count of second-degree murder with a rearm, a life felony, for allegedly killing Kello Bonhomme, 40, in Murdock last month. A passerby found Bonhommes body early Sept. 9 on Salisbury Street. He had been shot three times in the head. A Charlotte County Sheriffs investigation shows Bonhomme had driven to the area to meet Freddie Campbell, 27, of North Port, to buy cocaine from him. Johnson, who accompanied Campbell, got into an argument with Bonhomme. A witness, who was hiding in Bonhommes vehicle at the time, told authorities she heard gun shots after Johnson and Bonhomme were arguing. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce originally charged Johnson and Campbell with seconddegree murder on Sept. 18. Prosecutors last week reduced the charge against Campbell to third-degree felony murder.IA investigation of supervisor closedAnother charge has been sustained against ousted Charlotte County Sheriffs evidence super visor Erin Hume. The 15-year sheriffs veteran resigned last month amid an internal affairs investigation that alleged she had showed up to work with alcohol on her breath. She was at a bar when she was called in to work. That charge against Hume was sustained, as was a charge that she lied during the IA investigation. Thursday, the sheriffs ofce released the report from a second internal investigation that had also been ongoing against Hume. The new report shows Hume wrongfully destroyed an iPod that was seized during an investigation. The iPod belonged to a deceased man, and should have been given to his next-of-kin. In another case, a $350 Fender guitar was conscated by the Sheriffs Ofce after detectives learned it was purchased with a stolen credit card. When the case was closed and the evidence was to be disposed of, Hume determined the musical instrument should be destroyed. The IA report shows the more appropriate option would have been to auction the guitar. Another employee caught the error before the guitar was destroyed. Hume declined to par ticipate in the most-recent IA investigation. Kenneth Cruttenden starts Monday as the new evidence supervisor for the Sheriffs Ofce. He has been working in the agencys Records section and he used to be a jail clerk.Report: Man strips, goes crazyWARM MINERAL SPRINGS A man faces criminal charges after a bizarre incident in which he allegedly stripped naked, threatened a woman, then broke six windows at her house, according to the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce. Jacob Cicciari, 20, of the 4400 block of Grobe St. in the Warm Mineral Springs community near North Port, was charged with one count each of criminal mischief and simple assault after the 45-year-old female victim saw Cicciari chasing a truck down the street on foot in front of her home around 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday. According to the victim, Cicciari stopped in front of her Granada Boulevard residence, took off all of his clothes, then approached the victim, threatening to choke her. A report states the victim then took refuge in her home but Cicciari broke all the windows on the side and in the rear of the house in an effort to get at her. Fearing for her life, the victim phoned authorities, but Cicciari had vanished by the time they arrived. They did nd a pair of shorts and a shirt in the victims driveway, along with a signicant amount of blood at the rear of the home. A neighbor told police they saw a naked man climbing over a nearby fence and identied the man as Cicciari. The neighbor also knew where Cicciari lived and it wasnt long before authorities had his Grobe Street home surrounded. The report states that authorities saw smoke coming from Cicciaris home, and along with the amount of blood discovered at the scene, decided to enter the home because he might be seriously injured. They found Cicciari in the bathroom, with severe cuts to his arms, hands and abdomen. The report states that Cicciari had shaved his head just after the incident, and admitted to authorities that he had been smoking meth. Cicciari was taken into custody and transported to the Sarasota County Jail, where he remains on $1,620 bond.

No election-related letters will be published after Oct. 30. Editor: The governors race has yet again shown us all the sad state of affairs here in our beautiful state. Scott panders to the rich corporate elite and Crist sucks up to the poor and disenchanted. Dems want back in with those votes and the GOP gets the money machine with theirs. The ads seem to suggest that both men belong in jail and I would agree that they both should be. All I know is that I run a small business and work about 80 hours a week. It is difcult to make a living in a rigged system where PACS and lobbyists are calling the shots. I have never been on any type of assistance nor have I ever been lax in paying my taxes and doing my civic duty. Truth be told, Tallahassee needs term limits, no PACS, no lobbyists, no Scott and no Crist. The mud-slinging shows the true character of these nefarious gents and I will vote for candidate for governor Adrian Wyllie. I rmly believe that he is beholden to no one and will truly do what is in the best interest of the people living in Florida. See his platform, hear his message and stop the madness.Michael L. Bossey EnglwoodEditor: I am an American, not a Democrat or Republican. With midterm elections close, its wise to look at the actual record of politicians hungry for re-election instead of accepting politically correct hot air. This administration promised, if elected, a responsible, functioning, transparent, scally prudent government, improved foreign relations, all fundamental changes. What is the actual record? Responsible functioning government? The administrations running dog, Senate major ity leader Harry Reid, has blocked over 300 house bills that Fearless Leader does not like from debate in the Senate, thus halting Congress function. Transparent government? Two million in weapons given the drug cartel, IRS muscle for political advantage, Americans killed abroad, releasing terrorists for a deserter, politically correct health insurance mandates, and more, all with cover-ups or big-time blame game. Successful foreign relationships? The Middle East was semi-stable, now is chaos, Iraq a disaster, retreat from Afghanistan with no U.S. benet, the coalition to destroy ISIS about as solid as water. Editor: Chutzpah: Nerve, guts, daring, audacity, effrontery. When you write a letter to the editor full of lies, distortion and false innuendo. Recently there were two letters published in this newspaper written by people with a lot of chutzpah. It would seem that if you have nothing good to say Editor: Historically, the recreational use of marijuana was popular among the American elite in the 19th century. The importation into western states by Mexican migrants and the drugs popularity among African-American jazz musicians in New Orleans and Chicago led to legal prohibi tion. These laws were based on racial stereotypes rather than facts. The prohibition was strengthened when marijuana was placed in Schedule I under the 1970 Controlled Substances Act. Because marijuana is in Schedule I, in order to conduct random controlled trials, the gold standard, researchers must get approval from an alphabet soup of federal agencies, including DEA and NIDA, which very much dont want to approve. Those wanting to study other drugs only need FDA approval. Because of costs, time and uncertainty in getting these extra approvals, drug companies shy away from mar ijuana RCTs. We are left with testimonials and case studies, poor alternatives to RCTs. Some, including our sheriff, have stated that marijuana is in Schedule I because it has no medical use. The truth is the inverse, that it has no accepted medical use because it is Schedule I. Block the RCTs with bureaucratic red tape and you will not nd medical uses. Congress should move mar ijuana to Schedule II or III, so RCTs can be done and we can use science to get real answers about its medical benets. This will settle the issue and relieve the states of the process they currently face. Will some senator or congressman from Florida step up? I doubt it.Johnny Thomas Port CharlotteEditor: Does anyone know whether or not Charlie Crist actually traveled around the state and personally red all 600,000plus people? I know he was responsible for the job losses, because Governor Scott said so, and he would never lie to the people of Florida.Harry Thomas Punta GordaEditor: I want to thank Hank Chiminello for his great and continuous support of our senior center. He always comes in with a smile and the rst thing he asks, do you need anything? This man is here at our center every day and he is the golden age of 93. We have another little lady who comes every day, and she watches over our this-n-that shop, guess how old she is? Bess Knope will be 98 years old in March. God Bless them for coming to the center for over 30 years. Another gentleman that I want to thank is Andy Gerberich. He is always there to help the center. He is a computer specialist and I can call on him anytime for help with the centers computer problems. Andy owns North Port Computers and is a pleasure to work with. I also want to thank all the volunteers who help make the North Port Senior Center the success that it is, because without them the center would have to close. We have a lot of great volunteers in Editor: Saw in your paper last week that Punta Gorda has hired a lobbyist for over $100,000. How come? What do we have legislators for? Arent our elected ofcials up to the task? If not, lets throw the bums out.Carl Herzog Punta GordaEditor: Some time ago, I wrote about my adopted feral cat, Ebony. He is enjoying his new home, but he still likes to roam outdoors. Trouble is, the street I live on is used as a miniature Daytona Speedway. Cottage Lane, only a quarter-mile long with 30 mph speed limits posted at each end, poses a hazard to pedestrians, children and my cat, as they risk their lives crossing or walking on the road, especially on the weekends, afternoons or evenings. The perps are mostly people living here in the neighborhood, ones with high-horsepower cars. I recently posted a catcrossing sign, as well as a slow down sign, but this seemed to encourage the speeders. I realize that the North Port police cannot patrol all our streets, but dont we all deserve a safe and peaceful street, especially one off the main streets?Marvin D. Myszka North PortVote yes on medical marijuanaOUR POSITION: Vote yes on Amendment 2 to legalize medical marijuana.If Amendment 2 on the Nov. 4 ballot receives 60 percent of the vote, marijuana would be legalized for medical purposes in Florida, which would join 23 other states and the District of Columbia where medical pot is legal. Faced with polls showing widespread support for medical marijuana among Florida voters, opponents of the amendment, led by the Florida Sheriffs Association, have unleashed what can only be called a scare campaign reminiscent of the 1930s propaganda movie Reefer Madness. The anti-medical mar ijuana crusaders paint ctional scenarios of pot shops on every street corner, criminal caregivers as the new pushers and legions of stoned young zombies lurching through neighborhoods that bear no relationship to the veriable data, studies and experiences from states that previously legalized it. Under the pretense they are providing facts about the amendment to voters, anti-medical marijuana advocates, such as FSA President Grady Judd, Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell and Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight, have invented loopholes that would unleash their imagined outcomes. Prummell convinced the Charlotte County Commission to pass a resolution urging residents to vote against the amendment. That 23 states have managed to avoid the pitfalls amendment foes present as sure things should tell you all you need to know about their arguments. That such misinformation and outright fabrications of fact are coming mainly from law enforcement ofcials is outrageous. Claims that the amendment would make anyone with the most minor ailment eligible for medical marijuana are specious, as is the argument that the Florida amendment language is so vague that it constitutes a loophole that would de facto legalize recreational marijuana. The Florida amendment language is nearly identical to refer endums passed in other states, including the types of diseases and conditions that are explicitly identied and the leeway physicians have to recommend it for other conditions. Claims that shady pot docs would hand out marijuana recommendations like candy on Halloween are just as ludicrous. If the amendment passes, the Florida Legislature will determine the procedures, qualications, conditions and other aspects of implementing the new law. A committee of lawmakers, law enforcement and health ofcials has already been meeting to explore those issues. The pro argument for Amendment 2 requires no distortion or scare tactics, simply compassion and common sense. For sufferers of AIDS, cancer, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, seizures, paralysis, Hepatitis C and chronic pain caused by illnesses such as lupus and neuropathy, medical marijuana offers relief from symptoms. All of these illnesses and conditions are currently treated with drugs only doctors can prescribe. Why would medical marijuana deployed under the same conditions be banned? Why would anyone else, including politicians and law enforcement ofcers, have a say in how a doctor and his or her patient treat a disease or condition? We encourage you to read the amendment language (election., research the issue and exercise your right to vote on this important policy issue. The Sun recommends a yes vote on Amendment 2. about the candidate that you support, you attack his opponent. If the accusations had any validity, it would not be necessary to make up lies about the candidate you do not support. For instance, blaming any one of the city commissioners for any decision is ludicrous. Any intelligent person would know and realize that there are ve commissioners on the City Council and that it takes the majority vote of at least three for any action to be taken. So please, dont be fooled by people who have nothing better to say about their preferred candidate. Be an informed voter. Learn the truth. Read between the lines. Think about the candidate who needs to denigrate his opponent or that is being supported by special interest groups.Marsha Cohen North PortFiscal responsibility? The administration doubled national debt in six years, to 17 thousand billion dollars (trillions), or an increase of $230,000 for every citizen in this country. With a wife and two children, a fathers share of administration waste nears a million dollars. Reduced military, infrastructure not improved, where has this enormous sum gone? We need to elect ofcials with common sense, integrity, who love our country instead of politicians who love socialism and personal power.William Gubb Englewoodthis town and my hat goes off to all of you for making a difference in North Port.Helen Marchese North Port


The Sun /Friday, October 24, 2014 E/N/C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINTIts a poor workman who blames his tools. We in the school district, like most people, have to work with the tools we have. Although we as educators have an amount of latitude, some of the most important elements of public education are determined by forces beyond our control. One of the most important of those elements is time. All of us are used to the nine-month calendar of 180 days, which is set by the legislatures, not school districts. From as long as we remember, summertime has been when schools take a three-month break. Most American school districts require between 175 and 180 days of school and/ or between 900 and 1,000 hours of instructional time per year, depending on the grade level. Popular myth has it that the break is a leftover from history, a time when children were released from school to help out with harvesting and planting. But, like many myths, that isnt necessarily so. Think about it: What crops are planted or har vested in the summer time? Actually, students were once dismissed from school to help with those agricultural tasks, but that break took place during the fall, when most crops were harvested. And in the big cities of 19th century America, schools went year-round. Attendance was not compulsory, but from the coldest winter day to the hottest day of summer, public education was a year-round enterprise. Several factors led to our present school calendar. In the days before air conditioning, families with the means to do so would escape city heat for the countryside, taking their school-age children with them. Prominent educators such as Horace Mann argued successfully for a standard school calendar, which eventually led to the summer break. One of the arguments at that time was that childrens brains could not take a year of school time for trips to the great outdoors and other pursuits were necessary to rest young minds. Tourism and entertainment industry ofcials welcomed the change to a summer break calendar. Thats why in several northern communities, school opening is delayed until after the last big vacation weekend of summer, Labor Day. In Florida you cant start school any earlier than two weeks before Labor Day. Disney, Universal, Sea World and other resorts lobbied for that and won in the Legislature. What does all that history have to do with education today? Actually, a lot. For one thing, families are forced to spend money for babysitters or summer camps, instead of using the most prevalent child care apparatus in the community public schools. Now our teachers, of course, are far more than baby sitters. Theyre professionals, charged with educating the publics children. Many teachers have found that the summer vacation is more of a hindrance than a help. For example, by being trapped in a school year with such a long break, students lose much of what they learned during the previous year. That means the rst weeks of the school year are spent bringing students up to speed. And, in an era in which the state mandates several days of testing, those 180 days no longer translate into nine months of pure education. One of the most innovative ways of meeting the challenges of the imposed schedule is to tweak it. For example, several schools in the district East Elementary and Sallie Jones Elementary operate year-round, spacing out the school year so that the summer vacation is shorter by providing longer breaks within the traditional school year. Thats one way to keep students engaged and to partially offset the loss of information that happens over a three-month break. But variations of the old argument in favor of the three-month break still echo. For example, Billee Bussard, who runs an organization in Florida called Summer Matters, was quoted in a recent Hufngton Post article as saying that, The year-round calendar limits the window of opportunity for parents to give their children learning experiences outside the school walls. But how many par ents can afford such experiences? In a perfect world, three months of learning experiences beyond public schools would be great for kids. But the reality is that many kids, for a variety of reasons, arent able to experience a summer of educational enrichment. The Florida 2000 census informed us that 90 percent of all elementary age schoolchildren are in some form of supervised care programs throughout the summer. Douglas Whittaker is Superintendent of Charlotte County Public Schools.Myths, reality of the long summer break Doug Whittaker The United States and its allies are no longer losing the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, and in the Middle East, that counts as progress. In Syria, the besieged Kurdish town of Kobani, nearly given up for lost two weeks ago, has held off Islamic States guer rillas thanks to dozens of foreign airstrikes and an emergency U.S. airlift of guns and ammunition last weekend. Next door, the Iraqi army is no longer abandoning its posts around Baghdad and has actually launched some modest offensive actions on the outskirts of the capital. It hasnt taken back much territory from the Islamic State, but at least its not giving away more. And on the political front, Iraqs new government has nally managed to conrm a defense minister (Sunni Muslim) and interior minister (Shiite Muslim) after a monthlong deadlock, a step that should make it possible for Baghdad to begin rebuilding its armed forces and mount a more serious ground offensive. Those developments were enough for some Obama administration ofcials to throw caution to the winds and declare a measure of victory. This strategy is succeeding, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said last week. The announcement was understandable in an election season when the White House hasnt had much good news to celebrate. But is it true? A more sober assessment came from the commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East, Army Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III. We are having the desired effects, he told reporters last week, but this will take some time. For a dispassionate judgment, I turned to Douglas A. Ollivant of the New America Foundation, a former Army ofcer and former White House ofcial who helped plan the successful U.S. surge in Iraq in 2006. Its a stalemate, Ollivant said. Although we dont have Islamic State ghters on the run, neither are they continuing to grab new territory. But even thats an improvement from where we were in September, when Islamic States legions were close to invading Baghdad. Getting to the point of stalemate was accomplished through a relatively limited application of U.S. military power: 541 airstrikes from Aug. 8 through Oct. 19, an average of about seven strikes a day. Hawks have complained that the Air Force has been too restrained. Im an Army guy, not an air power advocate, but I dont think weve been using air power to its full effect, Ollivant said. Military ofcials disagree, but they have also said they could launch more airstrikes and more effective airstrikes if they had forward air controllers, spotters, on the ground with Iraqi troops. Obama continues to resist the use of U.S. ground forces in combat, fearing the danger of mission creep. In August, he rejected a request from Austin to send U.S. special operations forces to help Kurdish units retake the Mosul dam. In Syria, the U.S. airlift to Kobani didnt violate Obamas ban on ground troops. And the White House has rebuffed proposals for a NATOprotected safe zone for rebels and refugees in northern Syria. The problem, of course, is that airstrikes alone cant seize territory. For that, you need ground forces, as Obama and his aides acknowledge. They want local forces the Iraqi army and, eventually, moderate Syrian rebels to do that work. But the Iraqi army isnt ready, and the Syrian moderates, as a practical matter, barely exist. As a result, Obamas goal to degrade and ultimately destroy Islamic State is stuck, for now, in phase one: degrade. And privately, some ofcials think destroy is out of reach. A few weeks ago, the retired Marine general in charge of the overall strategy, John R. Allen, issued a memo asking underlings to use the word defeat instead a slightly lesser goal. And thats mostly in Iraq. The prospects are far drearier in Syria, where the U.S.-backed rebels remain weak and disor ganized. Last week, their political leaders tried and failed to unify around a single leader not for the rst time. Iraq is our main effort, and it has to be, Austin said. Even the U.S. effort to help Syrian Kurds in Kobani was aimed mostly at reducing Islamic State pressure on Iraq, he said. The action was launched not as the beginning of a more active U.S. role in Syrias civil war but rather as a way to bleed the insurgents in Kobani, diminishing their ability to act elsewhere. In the long run, one ofcial told me, we still face the same old riddle: Tell me how this ends. Thats a question with a history. It was asked in 2003 by then-Maj. Gen. David H. Petraeus as he led the 101st Airborne Division in the invasion of Iraq. Doyle McManus is a columnist for The Los Angeles Times.

Compiled by Adam Kreger, Drew Winchester and Allison ShirkARRESTSFROM PAGE 7 traditional Republican bent. Its still a toss up, said Florida Democratic Party press secretary Max Steele. Its going to be important to put a strong, concerted effort into the smaller counties that may not be traditionally Democratic to make sure we get out the vote. No doubt, its a tight race. A Quinnipiac University poll released this week showed both men in a dead heat, each with just 42 percent of the vote. The polls shows Scott is favored by male voters, while Crist is supported by female voters. According to Quinnipiac, men and women just about cancel each other out. Scott leads Crist among men 46 percent to 38 percent, while Crist leads Scott 45 percent to 39 percent among women. When asked why he wasnt as popular with women voters, Scott circled back to jobs. What do women want? Scott asked. They want to be able to live independently, they want to be able to get good jobs. Im going to do everything I can to get them good jobs. Steele, mocking Scotts Its Working campaign slogan, said the governor is out of touch with Florida women. He says he is focused on jobs, but the number of jobless Floridians still remains (at) almost a million, Steele said. His slogan is: Its Working. But a lot of middle class women, they dont feel that. Indeed, the 2014 race for Florida governor which has been marked by deep spending and nasty ad campaigns will be a race to the nish, political observers said. When the campaign began, everyone talked about how unusual the Florida governors race would be because two governors, incumbent Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist, were facing off, said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. But, as it enters the home stretch, its just like many other races across the country: There is a sizable gender gap; tens of millions are being spent on negative TV ads and there is a dead heat in which neither candidate has an edge, Brown said. 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.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comSCOTTFROM PAGE 1and his supporters have avoided posting signs outside of polling sites. The county is the sole jurisdiction, Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections Paul Stamoulis said. As an elections supervisor, Stamoulis said he has no authority to say what the county can or cannot do with political signs on county properties. The perspective has changed, County Code Compliance Manager Shawn Horton said. During the election cycle two years ago, county administrators decided to enforce existing codes banning political signs on county properties. Two years ago, after the primary, County Planning and Zoning Ofcial Shaun Cullinan recalled how the county administration was inundated with constituent complaints about campaign signs. There were signs on signs on signs, Cullinan said. Cullinan prepared a PowerPoint presentation and presented it to county commissioners at a workshop. He listed how, after that primary, county staff removed 43 candidate signs at the Tringali Center and nine at the West County Administration Center, four along South McCall Road and 25 signs at Meadow Park Elementary School. Commissioners, Cullinan said, agreed with administrations decision to stop allowing the posting of political signs on county properties. The placement or prohibition of candidate signs where voting occurs on churches and other non-county properties is up to those property owners. State statutes only restrict any campaigning within 100 feet from polling places. The county has erected signs that point out projects that have been funded with 1 percent infrastructure sales taxes. However, Deputy County Administrator Kelly Shoemaker said, The signs do not state a position relating to a ballot item (an extension of the sales tax); they state how a project was funded. The signs that have been placed on property sites have had permits pulled for them, these are additional signage permits. Charlotte County candidates shouldnt feel slighted. Sarasota County has had similar policies in place for four or more years. Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Kathy Dent recalled how former county administrator Jim Ley enacted and enforced similar restrictions on candidates posting signs outside of polling places. Again, the reason for the restriction was due to an overwhelming groundswell of political signs posted at polling places. Like Charlotte County, Sarasota County candidates can still stand outside of polling places holding their signs and try to garner an additional vote or two.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comSIGNFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY GARY ROBERTSCharlotte County Code Enforcement ocals may pluck up Ron Gillis campaign sign seen Thursday at the Mid-County Regional Library.

We didnt get hacked, there wasnt any external threat, and all student data and all business data is safe. We back things up every night. Still, about 3,000 computers desktops, laptops and tablets were affected districtwide. Email wasnt the only thing impacted, and Ferguson said several members of the districts Information Technology staff are working on a solution to the problem. They focused rst on xing the problems that affected instruction, he said, adding teaching naturally continued despite the problems. I think for awhile there were some applications that help with instruction, like giving students quizzes they can do and things they can do online so teachers had to use some more of the old-fashioned methods for a while. Ferguson said most of those teaching applications were available to teachers again Thursday. This is the second time in a month the district has experienced technical difculties. Ferguson said the district computer problems several weeks ago were more widespread, however. The rst week of October, the district struggled with frequent outages of the Crosspointe Grade System, used extensively by staff and students. At the time, a conference call between district IT Director Joe Binswanger and the districts Internet service provider, FPL FiberNet, about the Internet disruptions resulted in a service change to mitigate the outages. The current problems have not affected those systems, and the parent portal for checking student grades is also functioning properly, Ferguson said. The districts website, www., is also working without any problems.Email: annek@sun-herald.comCOMPUTERSFROM PAGE 1 suggests there was forced entry in the theft. The EAAA held its annual meeting Tuesday, and board members were selected. However, a president and vice president havent been named. The Sun spoke with three EAAA re-elected board members who declined comment. Joe Marinola, who served as vice president last season and is a 15-year supporter of Englewood Cats, agreed to answer questions via email. He said the sheriffs ofce was contacted after the cash wasnt returned within a few days. The board brought back past executive members to complete an audit of nancial records and coordinate with the Sheriffs Ofce investigation, he said. As a result of the initial review, the board also unanimously decided to remove a member from their executive board positions as another unrelated misuse of organizational funds was discovered while looking into other mishandlings of nancial funds. Marinola would not elaborate on the other issue, but said it was admitted to and the money was paid back. The vice president also pointed out that, while the organization remains out more than two grand, any check donations were not affected. He also said the board convened to discuss security measures and made adjustments, though he was not specic. Marinola called the recent cash theft disheartening and disgraceful. The EAAA is raising money to send two cheer squads to a regional competition in Orlando next month. Marinola said in his emailed statement that this fundraising is done every year. We have a strong commitment to these kids and hope that our local supporters will still step up and still be there for our kids even with the tarnish of this theft investigation being underway, Marinola said. Some supporters took to the Englewood Cats Facebook page this week to express frustration. Like I asked, where is the money? commented Gina Angelini Scott. Apparently no one else thinks that this is a problem, the money went somewhere, but not to these kids. She questioned why the end-of-year banquet was downsized, for example. In his prepared statement about the cash theft, Marinola said that any loss hurts operations. He didnt expand.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comSACKEDFROM PAGE 1 487237 Bethany L. Walden, Au.

CAN BACK PAIN HAVE GENETIC CAUSES? While most people with back pain can point to a specific event or series of actions that led to their pain, some might wonder if genetics might play a role. With this in mind, researchers recently examined 300 sets of male twins who reported different risk factors for back pain. For instance, one twin might have had a sedentary job while the other was involved with heavy lifting. Researchers found that despite differences in risk, many of the twin brothers both had back pain. Moreover, shared back pain was found to be most prevalent among identical twins, who have the same DNA. These findings led the researchers to believe that back pain may have a genetic component. P.S. A comprehensive assessment of a patients spine can help identify factors that could give rise to back pain as well as point to treatment and strategies for averting pain. 579 S Indiana Ave. #C 474-4944 Dr. John Frink, DC Liza Lyon Massage Therapist lic# mm31209 MASSAGE $ 10 OFF 1 HOUR $ 39 EXAM INCLUDES: Chiropractic Exam 2 X Rays If Necessary Reg.

Our Town Page 14 E/N/C The Sun /Friday, October 24, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS ENGLEWOOD At 7, Avery Cardona thought being a reghter for a day would be pretty cool. The Jaws of Life are too heavy, I cant lift them, he told Englewood reghters Jonathan Dausy and Rusty McCord. Thursday, the pair asked Avery if he was busy these days because they were hiring and needed someone right away. The young boy smiled big. Then he asked a question about re extinguishers. He learned there are three types carried on the retruck from Englewood Fire Department Station 71. I like this re truck, Avery said. I like the remen. Avery was joined by nearly 20 other children Thursday to learn about their local re department. We show the children what we look like in our gear so if we have to go to their house for a call they will not be so scared, said Dausy, who has been a reghter for eight years. We want to show children we are there to help and have them feel comfortable with us. The pair showed children the re truck and answered questions. They gave them color ing books and plastic helmets. We had some pink helmets left over from an event we did last year for breast cancer awareness that we gave to the girls, Dausy said. October is breast cancer awareness month. Fireghters usually come to the Elsie Quirk Library in Englewood once a year, said Cris Walton, Youth Services librarian. We like to have them come around Fire Prevention Week, she said. Its helpful to the children to see the reghters when they are in their gear. Some do get scared. Then they get to talk to the reghters and they seem less scary. The reghters visit proved to be educational for adults too. Pat Miner, who attended with her daughter Krisha Mota and granddaughter Moizelle, 3, learned why there is an electronic tablet inside the re truck. We got a grant and are able to do reports on the tablet, said McCord, a three-and-a half-year and second-generation reghter. If equipment needs to be repaired, we can send a report to the chief. The tablet cuts down on paperwork and makes us more efcient. Throughout the year, the Englewood Fire Department provides safety education programs. October is Fire Safety Education Month. Fireghters can also help residents install or replace a smoke detector any month. They can also review a re safety plan with residents. For more information, on the re department call 941-474-3311.

See Sports page 1.10 things to know WASHINGTON With mortgage rates sliding for a fth straight week, the possibility of locking in a rate below 4 percent is tempting for consumers and could unleash a wave of renancing. It may even convince some Americans to buy their rst home. Yet there are limits to how far the wave can extend. Millions of homeowners already re-nanced in 2013, when the average 30-year mortgage rate stayed below 4 percent until mid-year. And the overall housing market remains hampered by tight mortgage credit, rising home prices and stagnating incomes. This week the average rate on the 30-year loan fell to 3.92 percent, mortgage company Freddie Mac reported Thursday. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are renancing, retreated to 3.08 percent from 3.18 percent. That is sparking a boomlet of homeowners looking to renance as long-term mortgage rates plummet. Homeowners eager for a bar gain rate are ring off inquiries to lenders. Applications for re-s jumped 23 percent in the week ended Oct. 17 from the week before reaching their highest level since November 2013, gures compiled by the Mortgage Bankers Association show.Mortgage rates below 4 percentBy MARCY GORDONAP BUSINESS WRITERMORTGAGE | 3 AP PHOTOThis undated photo taken from an Instagram posting shows an overlook of Crater Lake in Oregon with a rock painting.

In recent weeks, he had been staying in a homeless shelter, where he talked about wanting to go to Libya to get away from drugs but griped that he couldnt get a passport. A picture began to emerge Thursday of Michael ZehafBibeau a day after the 32-yearold Canadian launched a deadly attack on Canadas seat of government that forced the country to confront the danger of radicalized citizens in its midst. In what the prime minister called a terrorist attack, Bibeau a recent convert to Islam and a petty criminal with a long rap sheet, including a string of drug offenses shot a soldier to death at Canadas tomb of the unknown Wednesday, then stormed the Parliament building, where he was gunned down by the sergeant-at-arms. Abubakir Abdelkareem, 29, who often visited the Ottawa Mission, a homeless shelter downtown, said he met Zehaf-Bibeau there. He said Zehaf-Bibeau told him he had a drug problem in Vancouver but had been clean for three months and was trying to steer clear of temptation. Abdelkareem told The Associated Press that ZehafBibeau wanted his passport to y to Libya because he thought he could avoid drugs there.Canada gunman wanted to go to MideastBy JENNIFER PELTZ, ROB GILLIES and RAPHAEL SATTERASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERSGUNMAN | 3 TALLAHASSEE The opposing campaigns battling over whether Florida should legalize medical marijuana are being largely funded by two wealthy individuals, who both insist their decision to open up their wallets is personal, not political. Most of the money spent on Amendment 2 has come from opponent Sheldon Adelson, a Las Vegas casino magnate, and supporter John Morgan, the founder of a well-known Florida law rm whose slogan For the People shows up frequently on the states television and radio airwaves. Floridas battle over pot has been the seventh-most expensive in the nation, according to advertising data on ballot measures assembled by the Center for Public Integrity. So far, $3.4 million has been spent on more than 4,200 television ads, most of them encouraging Floridians to vote down Amendment 2. To obtain marijuana, patients would have to get a doctors certication of their condition, which in turn would qualify them for patient ID cards they can use at licensed dispensaries.

It says a major ity of boys and girls who date describe themselves as both victims and perpetrators. Sponsored by the National Institute of Justice, the National Survey on Teen Relationships and Intimate Violence was conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago, a prominent research center which provided preliminary results to The Associated Press. Input came from a nationwide sample of 667 youths aged 12-18 whod been dating within the past year and who completed a self-administered online questionnaire. Nearly 20 percent of both boys and girls reported themselves as victims of physical and sexual abuse in dating relationships but the researchers reported what they called a startling nding when they asked about psychological abuse, broadly dened as actions ranging from name-calling to excessive tracking of a victim. More than 60 percent of each gender reported being victims and perpetrators of such behavior. The survey found no substantive differences in measures by ethnicity, family income or geographic location.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Friday, October 24, 2014 NATIONAL NEWS | NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFS3 states wage fight to keep same-sex marriage banWASHINGTON (AP) Three states are continuing their legal ght against same-sex marriage, despite rulings from federal appeals courts that oversee those states that concluded gay and lesbian couples have the right to marry. Even as ofcials in other states have abandoned defense of gay marriage bans, Kansas, Montana and South Carolina are refusing to allow same-sex couples to obtain marriage licenses without a court order directing them to do so. It could be another month or more before the matter is settled. There seems little doubt that U.S. District Judge Daniel Crabtree ultimately will set aside the states gay marriage ban. Thats because the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, encompassing Kansas and ve other states, has said a state may not deny a marriage license to two people of the same sex. He is absolutely bound and has to make that decision, said Sarah Warbelow, legal director of the Human Rights Campaign. The same requirement holds true for federal judges who are hearing same-sex marriage lawsuits in Montana and South Carolina.Pennsylvania town can keep Jim Thorpes body(AP) Jim Thorpes body will stay in the Pennsylvania town where he was laid to rest six decades ago after a federal appeals court on Thursday threw out a ruling that could have resulted in his reburial on American Indian land in Oklahoma. The famed athletes surviving sons have been ghting to move the body to Sac and Fox land in the state where he was born, saying their father expressed a desire to be buried in Oklahoma. A federal judge agreed with them, ruling the town of Jim Thorpe amounted to a museum under a 1990 law intended to rectify the historic plundering of American Indian burial grounds. But the Philadelphiabased 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Thursday that Thorpes body should remain in Jim Thorpe, determining that U.S. District Judge Richard Caputo misapplied the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act. The law requires museums and federal agencies possessing American Indian remains to return them upon request of the deceaseds family or tribe.Border deaths drop to 15-year lowTUCSON, Ariz. (AP) The number of people who die trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border has dropped to the lowest level in 15 years as more immigrants turn themselves in to authorities in Texas and fewer are taking their chances with the dangerous trek across the Arizona desert. The U.S. government recorded 307 deaths in the 2014 scal year that ended in September Lawmakers seek to end benefits to former NazisWASHINGTON (AP) Legislation to stop suspected Nazi war criminals from receiving U.S. Social Security benets will be introduced soon, members of Congress announced Thursday, the latest response to an Associated Press investigation that revealed millions of dollars have been paid to former Nazis who were forced out of the United States. A bill crafted by Sens. Chuck Schumer of New York and Bob Casey of Pennsylvania will be offered in mid-November, when Congress returns to session following the midterm elections. House lawmakers said they are working on similar legislation. The APs investigation, published Sunday, has triggered outrage on Capitol Hill, in the editorial pages of newspapers across the country, and from the White House, which said former Nazis should not be getting Social Security benets. It is simply perverse that these criminals have been able to live comfortably abroad thanks to the American taxpayer, Schumer said.New York officials: Doctor has Ebola, 1st in cityNEW YORK (AP) A law enforcement ofcial and a New York City ofcial say a doctor who recently returned to the city after treating Ebola patients in West Africa has tested positive for the virus. Its the rst conrmed case in the city. The ofcials received notication of preliminary test results and told The Associated Press but werent authorized to discuss the case publicly before a Thursday night news conference. The doctor had been working in Guinea with the medical relief charity Doctors Without Borders. He returned more than a week ago and reported Thursday coming down with a 103-degree fever and diarrhea. He was being treated in an isolation ward at Manhattans Bellevue Hospital, a designated Ebola center. The doctors Harlem apartment has been cordoned off. The citys disease detectives have been tracing his contacts to identify anyone who may be at risk.CDC details new Ebola response and prep teamsATLANTA (AP) New federal Ebola response squads likened to public health SWAT teams are being readied to rush to any U.S. city where a new Ebola case might be identied, ofcials say. Meanwhile, the government has formed a second set of teams to prepare hospitals in cities deemed most likely to see a new Ebola case, should one turn up. Three of those teams have already been sent out. Health ofcials this week rst shared details about the two sets of health squads. The teams are ready to go boom if we have another case of Ebola, said Dr. Jordan Tappero, one of the leaders of CDCs Ebola response effort. SALT LAKE CITY (AP) A series of colorful, eerie faces painted on rocks in some of the Wests most pristine, well-known national parks has sparked an investigation by authorities and a furor online. National Park Service agents have found the images at ve parks in California, Utah and Oregon so far, and Park Service spokesman Jeffrey Olson said the vandalism could lead to felony charges for the person responsible. The images appear to come from a New York state woman traveling across the West this summer and documenting her work on Instagram and Tumblr, said Casey Schreiner of, whose blog post tipped off authorities. The investigation also is the subject of well-trafcked Reddit threads, with people railing against the drawings as the defacing of irreplaceable natural landscapes. Youre seeing this emotional response of people who feel like theyve been kicked in the gut, Schreiner said. Its not the rst time vandalism in parks has been documented on social media. Last year in Utah, two Boy Scout leaders caused an online uproar when they recorded themselves toppling an ancient rock formation at Goblin Valley State Park and posted it on YouTube. But in this case, the woman appears to consider the work an artistic expression, Schreiner said. One photograph online shows a painting of a womans face on a rock outcropping against the panoramic sweep of Oregons Crater Lake National Park. In another, a line drawing of a woman smoking a cigarette appears on red rock in Utahs Canyonlands. It is about the size of a backpack. The images appear to have been painted with acrylic paint or drawn with marker, Schreiner said. He took screen Tuesday shots of seven images from Instagram and Tumblr accounts under the handle creepytings. The accounts later were made private or taken down. The Associated Press is not naming the woman associated with the accounts because she hasnt been charged with a crime. Efforts to reach her Thursday were not successful. Artists who work in natural environments typically consider who owns the land and get permission to work there, said Monty Paret, an associate professor of art history at the University of Utah. The earthwork Spiral Jetty sculpture on the shore of the Great Salt Lake, for example, is on land leased from the state. The images that sur faced this week look more like grafti, Paret said. As opposed to tagging in a back alley, its like tagging an iconic building, he said. Its going to get a lot more attention. National parks agents have conrmed the vandalism in Yosemite and Death Valley National Parks in California, Canyonlands and Zion in Utah, and Crater Lake in Oregon. Investigators also are looking for vandalism in other places the womans social media trail indicates she visited: Joshua Tree, Sequoia and Kings Canyon in California; Rocky Mountain in Colorado; Bryce Canyon in Utah; and Grand Canyon in Arizona. Vandalism in national parks typically is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a $5,000 ne and a year in prison. But it can be a felony if the damage is extensive or in specially protected places, Olson said.Paintings in national parks spark probe, furor the lowest number since 1999.

The Sun /Friday, October 24, 2014 WIRE Page 3 FROM PAGE ONE some of the behaviors dened as psychological abuse such as insults and accusations of irting are commonplace but said they shouldnt be viewed as harmless. None of these things are healthy interactions, she said. Its almost more of a concern that our gut reaction is to accept this as natural. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in its campaigns against teen dating violence, also stresses the potential seriousness of psychological abuse. Teens often think some behaviors, like teasing and name calling, are a normal part of a relationship, says a CDC fact sheet. However, these behaviors can become abusive and develop into more serious forms of violence. Bruce Taylor, the other lead researcher for the NORC survey, said the overall abuse gures were higher than previous national studies of dating abuse, revealing the startlingly widespread nature of this problem. Using a denition under which adolescent relationship abuse can occur in person or through electronic means, in public or private, and between current or past dating partners, the survey estimates that 25 million U.S. adolescents are victims and nearly 23 million are perpetrators. Taylor and Mumford said the high rates in their survey may stem in part from youths being candid due to the privacy of the online format. They also suggested that dating abuse is now so common that young people have little concern about admitting to it. The survey found fairly similar rates of victimization and perpetration among boys and girls even in the sub-categories of physical abuse and sexual abuse. Many previous studies have found that girls are markedly more likely to be victims of physical and sexual dating abuse than boys. However, the researchers detected a shift as adolescents age. We found that girls perpetrate serious threats or physical violence more than boys at ages 12-14, but that boys become the more common perpetrators of serious threats or physical violence by ages 15-18, they wrote.ABUSEFROM PAGE 1 Las Vegas Sands Corp., has given $4 million to the Drug Free Florida Committee. Adelsons donations represent 84 percent of what the group has raised so far. Adelson has been seeking approval to build a resort casino in the state, but Andy Abboud, vice president of Las Vegas Sands, said Adelsons decision to spend his own money came after conversations with Mel and Betty Sembler, both prominent Florida Republicans who have long been involved in anti-drug efforts. Adelsons own son died from a drug overdose, and his wife is a physician who has established drug treatment centers. It is a personal passion of theirs, said Abboud, who called mar ijuana a gateway drug to other types of drugs. Abboud added that the Adelsons intend to step up their involvement in other states to stop what he called the mainstreaming of marijuana. Pro-marijuana folks have awoken a sleeping giant in Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, Abboud said. You will start to see their involvement in any other state if needed. On the other side, Morgan and his law rm, Morgan & Morgan, are the largest donors to the group pushing the amendment, although most of Morgans nearly $4 million was largely aimed at helping collect the signatures needed to put the amendment on the ballot. Morgans rm hired Charlie Crist after he left the governors mansion nearly four years ago, and some have speculated that he pushed the amendment as part of an effort to boost turnout for Crists bid to defeat incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott. The Orlando attorney, however, has said the catalyst for his effort to legalize medical marijuana came from watching his dying father struggle with cancer. Morgan wasnt expecting to spend as much as he did on the effort. He said his goal was to get the petition effort started, but didnt realize he was going to do the bulk of the funding. All of a sudden youre halfway across the lake and the question is, Do you swim back or do you keep going? Thats kind of where I found myself, Morgan said recently.POTFROM PAGE 1 But in the past three days, his personality changed completely, Abdelkareem said. He was not talkative; he was not social anymore and slept during the day, said Abdelkareem, who concluded the man was back on drugs. Lloyd Maxwell, another shelter resident, said that Zehaf-Bibeau had lived for some time in Vancouver, then Calgary, then came to Ottawa specically to try to get a passport, believing that would be more easily accomplished in the nations capital. He didnt get it, and that made him very agitated, Maxwell said. Maxwell said that he suggested to the man that he might be on a no-y list, and he kind of looked at me funny, and he walked away. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police conrmed on Thursday that ZehafBibeau whose father was from Libya and whose mother was Canadian had applied recently for a passport. But RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson said authorities learned from his mother after the attack that he actually wanted to travel to Syria. His application was not rejected. His passport was not revoked. He was waiting to get it and there was an investigation going on to determine to see whether he would get a passport, Paulson said. Earlier this week, the Mounties said that there are about 90 people in the country who are suspected of intending to join the extremist ghting abroad or who have returned from such activity overseas. But Paulson said Thursday that Zehaf-Bibeau was not among them. In an email to the AP expressing horror and sadness at what happened, Zehaf-Bibeaus mother, Susan Bibeau, said that her son seemed lost and did not t in, and that she hadnt seen him for more than ve years until having lunch with him last week. So I have very little insight to offer, she said. In a brief and tearlled telephone interview with the AP, Bibeau said that she is crying for the victims of the shooting rampage, not her son. Can you ever explain something like this? said Bibeau, who has homes in Montreal and Ottawa. We are sorry.GUNMANFROM PAGE 1 The average 30-year mortgage rate nationwide that week breached the 4 percent threshold and hit 3.97 percent from 4.12 percent the previous week. It was the lowest level since June 2013. Deepening concern over the health of the world economy compelled investors to ee stocks and move into bonds. That pushed up prices of Treasury notes and suppressed their yields, which often pull along mortgage rates. But it remains to be seen whether the uptick in renancing will turn into an extended boom. About half of all homes with a mortgage have rates at about 4.3 percent or less, according to real estate data provider CoreLogic. It may not be worth it for those homeowners to renance at current rates because renancing carries its own costs and fees. Nela Richardson, chief economist at real estate brokerage Redn, estimates that only homeowners with rates higher than 4.25 percent would see a net benet from renancing. Similarly, with many home borrowers already in the range of 3.5 percent to 4 percent on their mortgages, the spike in renancing may not last very long, said Michael Fratantoni, the MBAs chief economist. For potential homebuyers, the lower rates could encourage reluctant purchasers to take the plunge. Their hesitation stems from the lingering effects of the Great Recession. Median household incomes have yet to completely rebound and remain below their 2007 levels after adjusting for ination. Limited income gains have cut into the cash ow and down payment savings needed to purchase a home. Meanwhile, median home prices have risen 5.6 percent over the past 12 months to $209,700, and lenders have kept standards tight for making mortgage loans since the recession. Add to that the trend toward millennials putting off buying their rst home, said Stan Humphries, chief economist of real estate rm Zillow. Economists expect sales of new homes in September to show a 7.1 percent drop from a year earlier when the Commerce Department issues a report Friday.MORTGAGEFROM PAGE 1 DENVER (AP) The case of three teenage girls who possibly tried to join Islamic State militants poses vexing questions for U.S. ofcials about terror groups use of social media to recruit people inside the United States. A Colorado school ofcial said the Denver-area girls two sisters ages 17 and 15, and a 16-year-old friend were victims of an online predator who encouraged them to travel overseas and eventually to Syria. Mia Bloom, a professor of security studies at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell, said the girls story so far suggests how Islamic extremists have mastered social media to prey on younger and younger women with Disney-like versions of what it is like to live under Muslim leadership, complete with promises of husbands and homes. At least one of the girls was communicating with someone online who encouraged the three to travel to Syria, said Tustin Amole, a spokeswoman for the Cherry Creek School District where the girls attend high school. Fellow students told school ofcials that the girls had been discussing travel plans over Twitter, Amole said. The girls were detained at an airport in Frankfurt, Germany, and sent home over the weekend. They were interviewed by the FBI and returned to their parents in the Denver suburb of Aurora. Those in the tight-knit east African community where they live said the sisters are of Somali descent and their friend is of Sudanese descent. Theres no indication they had been radicalized in a way that they wanted to ght for ISIS, Amole said. A U.S. ofcial said evidence gathered so far made it clear that the girls were headed to Syria, though the ofcial said investigators were still try ing to determine what sort of contacts they had in that country. Another U.S. ofcial said 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. Social media has played a very signicant role in the recruitment of young people, said FBI spokesman Kyle Loven in Minneapolis, home to the largest Somali community in the U.S. Authorities there have been concerned about terror recruiting of the young for years. What weve experienced here in Minneapolis is that young, disaffected youth who exist primarily on the fringes of society they seem to be more susceptible to this type of propaganda, unfortunately, Loven said.Girls journey renews fears of terror recruiting HONG KONG (AP) Smooth jazz star Kenny G insisted Thursday hes not a foreign provocateur supporting Hong Kongs pro-democracy protests, after Beijing signaled its displeasure over his inharmonious visit and repeated concerns about meddling by external forces. The American musician created a stir when he tweeted Wednesday about his visit to the semiautonomous southern Chinese city, where thousands of student-led protesters have occupied streets for more than three weeks to press their demands for greater democratic reforms. In Hong Kong at the sight of the demonstration. I wish everyone a peaceful and positive conclusion to this situation, he wrote. He took to social media again later to declare that he was not trying to defy the Chinese government, but rather had just happened to come across the protest zone while walking around Hong Kong as a tourist. Photos had circulated earlier on social media of the star by himself and with protesters at the main protest zone near down town Hong Kong. The musicians laidback soprano sax tunes are wildly popular in China, especially his song Going Home, which can be heard at train stations, department stores, airports, hotel lobbies and over loudspeakers in public parks, and is often used as a signal for people to clear out.Kenny G distances self from Hong Kong protestersPYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) The United States government must make a formal apology to secure the freedom of two Americans who remain imprisoned in North Korea after the release this week of Jeffrey Fowle, North Korean legal experts said Thursday. Although North Korea released Fowle, getting Matthew Miller and Kenneth Bae out of prison will likely require an ofcial statement of apology and formal request for their release from Washington, according to the two North Korean law experts who spoke to The Associated Press. Fowle, who had not yet been tried in a court, was own out of North Korea on a U.S. military jet on Tuesday after being detained for six months for leaving a Bible in a nightclub in the city of Chongjin, where he was visiting with a foreign tour group.

NEW YORK (AP) A combination of strong company earnings and encouraging economic reports, both in the U.S. and Europe, gave the stock market another day of solid gains on Thursday. Caterpillar jumped after its third-quarter earnings report was better than Wall Street analysts had been expecting. The company also raised its prot outlook for the year. 3M, the maker of Post-it notes, industrial coatings and ceramics, was among other companies that gained after releasing impressive third-quarter results. Investors were also cheered by a report that showed the number of people applying for U.S. unemployment benets remains at a historically low level, suggesting that hiring is gaining steam. In Europe, a survey of businesses eased concerns that the region may be slipping back into recession. Solid company earnings are sending the stock market higher and helping it recover from a jarring drop in mid-October that gave the Standard & Poors 500 index its biggest slump in two years. The index has gained on ve of the last six days, and on Tuesday logged its biggest advance of the year. The economic backdrop here in the United States is continuing to look strong. Earnings are validating that, said Karyn Cavanaugh, a senior market strategist at Voya Investment Management. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 23.71 points, or 1.2 per cent, to 1,950.82. The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 216.58 points, or 1.3 percent, to 16,677.90. The Nasdaq composite rose 69.95 points, or 1.6 percent, to 4,452.79. Eight of the 10 sectors in the S&P 500 gained, led by a surge in industrial companies after Caterpillar and 3M reported their earnings. Caterpillar said that some belt tightening had helped it contend with a slowing global economy. The companys CEO said he was hopeful that economic growth would pick up next year. Caterpillars stock rose $4.70, or 5 per cent, to $99.27. 3M gained $6.10, or 4.4 percent, to $145.05. Companies in the S&P 500 have reported earnings growth of 5.5 percent for the third quarter, according to analysts at S&P Capital IQ. The rate of growth has slowed from 10.4 percent in the second quarter, but is forecast to pick up in the nal three months of the year.US stocks jump Steve Sachkar The Sleep Store now open in North Port | BUSINESS NEWS BRIEFSFuel costs ease, US airline profits soarDALLAS (AP) Saving a nickel or a dime per gallon might not seem like much to the average motorist, but for airlines that burn hundreds of millions of gallons of fuel every month, it adds up quickly. Prots are soaring at the biggest U.S. airlines, and a chunk of credit goes to those savings at the pump. Fuel is an airlines biggest expense. Heading into the busy holiday-travel period, the airlines expect to see even cheaper fuel prices, thanks to the recent slide in crude oil prices. While getting a break on fuel, airlines are beneting from continued strong travel demand that allows them to push fares higher. Executives report strong bookings for holiday travel and say they see no signs that Ebola is scaring away travelers. The four largest U.S. airlines sold at least 83 percent of their seats in the third quarter.Senators ask govt for nationwide air bag recallDETROIT (AP) Two U.S. senators are calling on regulators to issue a nationwide recall of cars with faulty air bags made by Takata Corp., questioning why automakers have been allowed to limit recalls to only certain locations with high humidity. Democratic Sens. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Edward Markey of Massachusetts made the demand in a letter to Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, who oversees the National Highway Trafc Safety Administration. Air bag inators made by Takata can rupture, causing metal fragments to y out in a crash. Safety advocates say the problem has caused four deaths and multiple injuries. So far automakers have recalled about 12 million vehicles worldwide due to the problem. Takata has recommended that automakers conduct recalls only in Florida, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.GM 3Q profit nearly doubles, led by N. AmericaDETROIT (AP) Big prots from rising SUV and truck sales in North America helped General Motors nearly double its third-quar ter net prot and more than offset its struggles in Europe and South America. The automaker posted net income of $1.38 billion, or 81 cents per share. In the year-ago quarter, GM made $698 million, or 45 cents per share. The July-September quar ter was the rst this year without signicant charges for recalls. GM has issued 75 recalls in 2014 covering more than 30 million vehicles, costing the company more than $2.8 billion. Without $331 million in one-time items, GM would have made 97 cents per share, exceeding Wall Streets expectations. Analysts polled by FactSet expected 95 cents. Revenue grew 2 percent to $39.25 billion, above expectations of $38.79 billion. GM shares rose more than 2 percent in premarket trading.

Cremation violates Liberians values and cultural practices and the order has so disturbed people in the west African nation that the sick are often kept at home and, if they die, are secretly buried, increasing the risk of more infections. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf issued the cremation decree for Monrovia and the surrounding area in August, and the government has brought in a crematorium and hired experts. The order came after people in neighborhoods of the capital resisted burials of hundreds of Ebola victims near their homes. Since then, a recent analysis of space at Ebola treatment centers shows that of 742 beds available, more than half 391 were vacant, said Assistant Health Minister Tolbert Nyenswah, who heads the governments Ebola response.US: IS earns $1M per day in black market oil salesWASHINGTON (AP) Islamic State militants are raking in money at a remarkable rate, earning about $1 million a day from black market oil sales alone, a Treasury Department ofcial said Thursday. David Cohen, who leads the departments effort to undermine the Islamic States nances, said the extremists also get several million dollars a month from wealthy donors, extortion rackets and other criminal activities, such as robbing banks. In addition, he said the group has taken in at least $20 million in ransom payments this year from kidnappings. The group extracts oil from territory captured across Syria and Iraq, and sells it to smugglers.Jerusalem mayor vows to calm cityJERUSALEM (AP) Jerusalems mayor on Thursday called for a crackdown against a wave of Palestinian unrest, as police beefed up security after a Palestinian motorist with a history of anti-Israel violence slammed his car into a crowded light rail train station and killed a baby girl. The crash Wednesday night escalated already heightened tensions in east Jerusalem, the section of the holy city captured by Israel in 1967 and claimed by the Palestinians as their capital. Since the summer, Palestinian youths have clashed frequently with Israeli police, thrown stones and rebombs at Israeli motorists and disrupted service of the citys light rail train a service meant to unify the city. In an interview, Mayor Nir Barkat said the violence has become intolerable, and he vowed to restore order. Yesterday what we saw is another higher level, of people running over a 3-month-old baby, he told The Associated Press.

Poland says its ready to veto the plan that would oblige the blocs 28 states to jointly cut their greenhouse gas emissions to 40 percent below the 1990 levels by the year 2030. The EU plan would also require climate-friendly, renewable energy to provide 27 per cent of the blocs needs and demand that energy efciency increase by a third in the next 16 years. Poland says that pace is too fast for Eastern European countries that are trying to grow their economies as they restructure old, energy-dependent industries.Coalition airstrikes in Syria killed over 500MURSITPINAR, Turkey (AP) U.S.-led coalition airstrikes in Syria have killed more than 500 people since they began last month, mainly Islamic militants, activists said Thursday, as ghting ared yet again in the northern Syrian border town of Kobani.

I know absolutely nothing, the Kansas City rst baseman said. Ive heard nothing but good things about it, the atmosphere and the energy the crowd brings. Ive always wanted to play there. Im sure going for the rst time for a World Series game, it should be fun, he said. Well, wait until he trips over a bullpen mound chasing a foul ball. Or a teammate loses a y in the mist that wafts above shallow center. Or those swirling winds turn a routine popup into an all-out scramble. Who knows? Might even get a crazy carom off that odd-shaped brick facade on the right-eld wall, resulting in the rst Series inside-the-park home run since 1929. Yep, loads of fun.

The Red Knights had nearly been off the practice eld some had gotten halfway to the locker room when Graham realized he had forgotten this last bit of con ditioning his team might need for tonights game against Lemon Bay. Perhaps forgetting the conditioning was a minor growing pain of a new coach. But Graham knows hes going to learn a little more about coaching every day.

Oscar Estrada made program history this season for the Pine Manor College mens soccer team. The North Port High School graduate became the rst starting goalkeeper and earned the rst victory in the rstyear program. Soccer is one of two mens sports at the Massachusetts college that started matriculating men this fall. Pine Manor coach John Shimer recruited nationally to ll the roster of 19. Though Estrada had offers to play elsewhere, he chose the startup. He could come here and be a starter for four years, Shimer said. Estrada played in 10 games (5-5); eight of his nine starts came in goal. He established himself as our No. 1 goalie, Shimer said. Hes been very, very solid. Though the 5-foot-8 Estrada was the smallest of three freshmen keepers on the roster, Shimer said he was one of the tter players entering the preseason. We had a tough competition, Estrada said about the battle for starter. Once I got into rhythm, everything fell in place. He posted a 4-2 record, 3.47 goals against average and .677 save percentage. He made a season-high 11 saves in a loss to Norwich University. The games a lot faster, Estrada said. The kids are a lot stronger. Were going up against guys who are juniors and seniors. We played some really, really good tactical teams, he said. It showed theyve been around a long time. Estrada doesnt have superior athletic ability, Shimer said, but he excels in other areas. I didnt have a back line of players with much experience, the coach said. Hes got good position in the goal. When players need to mark and when players need to shift, hes denitely established himself as a leader of that back line. He reads the play very well, he said. Oscar has superior awareness and technique. Estrada, who cited North Port boys soccer coach Gerard Gregoire as a key in his development, called his win against Newbury his best effort. He made seven saves and allowed one goal. He even stopped a penalty kick, the lone one he said he faced this season. Pine Manor did not play in a conference this season. Shimer said he is aiming to schedule 16 to 18 games next year and get the school into a conference.Know an athlete who grew up or attended a high school in the area who is now competing collegiately?

Saunders shot a 2-over-par 72 and is far back in the eld at the PGA Tour event. Compton reflects on long journeyBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. Erik Compton is happy with where he is in golf, and hes not referring to his 5-under 65 on Thursday for a share of the lead in the McGladrey Classic. A return to Sea Island provides an occasion to take stock of how far he has come in the last 13 years, and what Compton refers to as the hurdles he didnt anticipate. Theres a medical term for these hurdles. Its called a second heart transplant. Im almost 35 years old. Ive had a good career in golf, really, he said. Even though Ive had some time off, Ive been able to support myself and have a good life. Compton remarkably earned a PGA Tour card just four years after he drove himself to the hospital while suffering a heart attack, dodging death until he received a second transplant. He is in his fourth consecutive season on golfs toughest circuit, and he has shown steady improvement. The next step is to win, and Compton has been around long enough not to get overly excited about a good start. PGA president refers to Poulter as lil girl: The PGA of America president referred to Ian Poulter as a lil girl for his criticism of the way Nick Faldo and Tom Watson captained their Ryder Cup teams. Faldo was captain of the last European team that lost in 2008. Watson was captain of the American team that lost at Gleneagles last month. Poulter was critical of both in his book, No Limits. Korda leads Blue Bay: Jessica Korda birdied five of the first eight holes and finished with a 6-under 66 to take the first-round lead in the Blue Bay LPGA in Hainan Island, China. The American, a two-time winner this season, birdied the first three holes and added birdies on Nos. 6, 8 and 14 in her bogey-free round in the inaugural event at Jian Lake Blue Bay. Michelle Wie and Chinese star Shanshan Feng were a stroke back along with Brittany Lang, Lee-Anne Pace, Jodi Ewart-Shadoff and Caroline Masson. Olesen, Wade share Perth lead: Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark and John Wade of Australia shot course-record 8-under 64s at the Lake Karrinyup Country Club in Perth, Australia, to share the lead after the first round of the Perth International. Olesen teed off in an afternoon group and had four birdies on each of the front and back nines to equal the mark that Wade, a 46-year-old assistant pro at the Commonwealth Golf Club in Victoria state, set in the morning.

AP PHOTOSan Francisco starting pitcher Tim Hudson leaves during the seventh inning of Game 3 of the National League Championship Series against St. Louis. SAN FRANCISCO In the middle of a champagne-and-beer-soaked clubhouse after the San Francisco Giants won the NL Championship Series, Tim Hudson was given the chance to speak. The message was as simple as Hudsons approach on the mound: World Series, baby! After 16 years, 214 regular-season wins and seven failed trips to the postseason, Hudson has made it to baseballs biggest stage at age 39. Hudson is set to take the mound tonight for the Giants when they return home to face Jeremy Guthrie and the Royals in Game 3 of the World Series after a two-game split in Kansas City. I think everybody thinks about it every year they play, Hudson said. Obviously, when you go 16 years without having been able to experience something like this, you wonder if its going to hap pen. Im no different than anybody. Hudsons brilliant career began on the other side of San Francisco Bay as he helped Oakland make four straight trips to the postseason that ended with Game 5 losses in the division series. Hudson got back to the playoffs with Atlanta, losing in the division series in 2005 to Houston and 2010 to San Francisco. The Braves made it again last year when Hudson was hurt but lost again in the division series. Chemist enters plea: Paulo Berejuk pleaded not guilty in a Miami court to two conspiracy charges involving distribution of testosterone and human growth hormone. A judge ordered Berejuk jailed without bail after prosecutors said the South Florida resident might flee to his native Brazil and is a danger to the community. The Drug Enforcement Administration alleges Berejuk supplied Anthony Boschs clinic Biogenesis of America, making the performance-en hancing drugs in his homes garage. The case has resulted in a halfdozen other arrests and suspensions for 14 MLB players, including a record season-long suspension for New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez. Ratings increase: Game 2 of the World Series stayed close deeper into the night, boosting ratings. The 12.9 million viewers on Fox for Kansas Citys 7-2 victory against San Francisco were an increase of 6 percent from Game 1. The 7.9 rating with a 14 share was still the second-lowest ever for a Game 2. The Giants 2-0 win over the Detroit Tigers in 2012 drew a 7.8/12. Around the majors: Philadelphia and Grady Sizemore agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract. The contract includes performance bonuses. Sizemore would have been eligible for free agency. Arizona added Bryan Minniti as assistant general manager and Mike Russell as professional scouting coordinator. The New York Mets hired Kevin Long as hitting coach. The 47-year-old Long spent the last eight seasons as the Yankees hitting coach. Boston hired Chili Davis as its hitting coach. Davis held that job with the Oakland Athletics the past three seasons.Hudson prepares for his Series debutBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MLB NOTEBOOKAppearance comes in his 8th trip to the postseason RALEIGH, N.C. An alarming lack of institutional oversight at the University of North Carolina allowed an academic fraud scandal to run unchecked for nearly two decades and has the school reeling from the fallout. The latest investigation found that university leaders, faculty members and staff missed or ignored ags that couldve stopped the problem years earlier. More than 3,100 students about half of them athletes beneted from sham classes and articially high grades in the for merly named African and Afro-American Studies department (AFAM) in Chapel Hill. A report by former U.S. Justice Department ofcial Kenneth Wainstein indicates that the bogus classes ended in 2011. The university has since over hauled the department and implemented new policies, but it must wait to nd out whether the damaging new details lead to more problems with the agency that accredits the school. The NCAA, which has reopened its investigation into academic misconduct, could also have concerns of lack of institutional control. Bad actions of a relatively few number of people were denitely compounded by inaction and the lack of really appropriate checks and balances, Chancellor Carol Folt said Thursday. And it was together that really allowed this to persist for such a length of time. The issues outlined in the report were jarring, including the clear involvement of athletic counselors who steered athletes into those bogus classes. From 1993 to 2011, those classes required no attendance and required only a research paper that received As and Bs without regard for quality, a cursory review often performed by an ofce secretary who also signed the chairmans name to grade rolls. Those two people retired administrator Deborah Crowder and former chairman Julius Nyangoro were at the center of the scheme. But Wainsteins report also notes school ofcials failed to act on their suspicions or specic concerns that came to their attention. Accreditation questions are now facing the university. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges had placed the campus on its watch list until this summer and required the school to allow students who took a bogus course to take another for free. The commission will send the school a letter in the next few days asking administrators to demonstrate they are still in compliance with standards required for the seal of approval, SACS President Belle Wheelan said. What we would do is ask them is, this is bigger than you thought it was, what are you going to do now? Its a mess, Wheelan said. The schools response will be addressed by the 77-member board at its meeting in December, she said. We are interested in more than anything in making sure that the students dont run into problems trying to explain any degrees that they have after the fact as a result of this, Wheelan said. SACS core requirements for accrediting a degree-granting university include clear control over all aspects of its educational program, including athletics. And the issue of institutional control could impact the NCAA probe, raise questions about what coaches knew and ultimately lead to possible wins and championships being vacated. If we go back with the NCAA in our joint review, and ... if weve identied that we have played students who were ineligible, then obviously we would have to vacate wins at that time, UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham said. But as long as the courses and the credits and everything count to the accrediting agency, were very comfortable with our certication process that our students were eligible to compete when they competed. The AFAM department escaped external reviews required every ve years because it lacked a graduate program. Nyangoro was also exempt from peer reviews for tenured faculty because he was a department chairman. Folt said she believed the school wouldve caught the fraud sooner if not for those since-removed exemptions.By AARON BEARD and EMERY P.

BLACKSBURG, Va. Duke Johnson ran for 249 yards and scored two touchdowns and Miami took advantage of Virginia Techs fumbles on three consecutive second-half drives in a 30-6 victory Thursday. The Hurricanes (5-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) outgained Virginia Tech 255-36 in the rst half in taking a 24-0 lead, then took the ball away on the Hokies rst three drives of the second half. The rst takeaway came at Miamis 1 as Deon Bush stripped Marshawn Williams and made the recovery. Virginia Tech (4-4, 1-3) lost for the second week in a row and for the fourth time in its last ve Thursday night appear ances. Its continuing offensive struggles drew boos before halftime and the fumbling sent fans heading for the exits. No. 18 East Carolina 31, Connecticut 21: In Greenville, N.C., Shane Carden threw for a season-high 445 yards, Breon Allen ran for two touchdowns and East Carolina pulled away. Carden was 38 of 64 during his seventh career 400-yard performance. He helped the Pirates (6-1, 3-0 American Athletic Conference) sidestep a major upset bid by four-touch down-underdog UConn (1-6, 0-4) in East Carolinas first prime-time, weeknight showcase game in its new league. Warren Harvey kicked the go-ahead 31-yard field goal with 6:15 left, Carden threw touchdown passes of 13 yards to Justin Hardy and 10 yards to Bryce Williams, and Allen scored on runs of 1 and 9 yards. Chandler Whitmer was 18 of 30 for a season-high 303 yards with two tying touchdown passes in the third quarter after rushing for a short score for the Huskies. Michigan cuts student ticket prices: Michigan is reducing the price of student season tickets to football games by 37.5 percent next year. The athletic department announced the sevengame home schedule will be priced at $175 for 2015, down from $280 this season. There have been a fair number of empty seats this year in the sections where students usually sit. Athletic director Dave Brandon said the new pricing came about because of dialogue between students and the athletic department, and student government president Bobby Dishell said it demonstrates a commitment from the athletic department to act on student feedback. Clemson schedules Texas A&M: The schools agreed to a two-game series in 2018 and 2019. The teams will play at Texas A&M in 2018 and at Clemson in 2019. The games mean that Clemson will face two Southeastern Conference schools each season from 2016 through 2019. Clemson plays Auburn in 2016 and 2017 before picking up Texas A&M. Miami routs HokiesBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL ROUNDUP AP PHOTOMiami wide receiver Stacy Coley breaks the tackle of Virginia Tech defensive back Ray Lewis III during Thursdays game in Blacksburg, Va. Miami won 30-6. Giants tied at 1-all. Tim Hudson starts for San Francisco against Jeremy Guthrie. The Royals only trip to San Francisco came in 2005 and they took two of three. Buddy Bell was the manager, Tony Graffanino batted third and Jeremy Affeldt was in the bullpen. The 35-year-old Affeldt now pitches for the Giants and came on in relief Wednesday night in a 7-2 loss. He said he gured the Royals could handle the new park. Thats an athletic team over there. So I think they can make adjustments. I dont think well go in thinking that theyre at a disadvantage because of not being at our ballpark, he said. About one-third of the Royals have played at AT&T Park with other teams. Of the most frequent visitors, Josh Willingham has hit .352 with ve homers in 16 games and Omar Infante has batted .307 in 19 games, STATS said. Among the pitchers, Guthrie did ne in two starts and Jason Frasor made two relief appearances. Outelder Lorenzo Cain played one game at the stadium in 2010 when he was with Milwaukee. The AL Championship Series MVP plans to practice with coach Rusty Kuntz to work on my angles and see how the park plays. Its kind of a work in progress and a wait-andsee type thing, Cain said. Good luck, Giants designated hitter Michael Morse said. Its a big park; right eld is tricky. The wind does a lot of different things in the outeld, so our guys are used to it, he said. Its tough. Its tough out there. But everybodys a professional. I dont think it will be a factor, he said. One thing will change, for sure. With no DH in the NL park, Morse and Kansas Citys Billy Butler will lose their spots Morse drove in a run during a 7-1 win in the opener, while Butler already has three hits and a pair of RBIs. With tight foul ground, gusts that whip off McCovey Cove, twilight starts and pesky seagulls that hover around in the late innings, a lot of balls become adventures in San Francisco. In 2007, Ichiro Suzuki hit the rst insidethe-park home run in an All-Star game when his shot off the right-eld wall took a weird ricochet. There have been nine inside-the-parkers in World Series play. Lou Gehrig and Casey Stengel are on the list, and Mule Haas of the Philadelphia Athletics hit the last one in 1929. Plus, postseason is frequently a weather adventure in the Bay Area. SERIESFROM PAGE 1


Page 4 SP The Sun /Friday, October 24, 2014 DAVIE Rookie receiv er Jarvis Landry said the NFLs not much different from the Southeastern Conference, and his rapid progress with Miami suggests he might be right. The former Louisiana State star was promoted to the rst team on the depth chart this week, solidifying his status after he was one of three starting wideouts in the past two games. Landrys ascent is especially impressive because receiver was the Dolphins deepest position in training camp. Among those he overtook was Brandon Gibson, a six-year veteran with 211 career catches. Im not satised, Landry said. I continue to work like somebody is in front of me. Who takes the eld rst doesnt matter. Its about the guy who makes the plays. Landry has become that kind of guy. He enters Sundays game at Jacksonville ranked second on the team to Mike Wallace with 22 catches for 232 yards, and scored his rst career touchdown in Game 5 against Green Bay. Landry has been targeted as often as Brian Hartline, a 1,000-yard receiver each of the past two years with better results. For the Dolphins, who have endured a succession of draft busts in recent years, Landry is a rare rookie. But he came into the NFL condent he could succeed. Thats me, he said. Thats one of the edges I play with. While Landry beneted from self-assurance, some doubted his speed when the Dolphins took him in the second round. But he has showed explosiveness on kickoff returns with runbacks of 74, 54 and 35 yards, and ranks second in the league with an average of 31.2 on 15 returns. Playing for the Dolphins isnt much different than playing for LSU, Landry said. And that doesnt surprise him. The SEC got me ready for the game speed and the caliber of guys I would face week in and week out, he said. Even so, Landry said his rookie season has been an education. Im just always constantly learning and picking up on little things, even from defensive guys, he said.Landry: NFL offers nothing SEC didntBy STEVEN WINEASSOCIATED PRESS NFL: MiamiReceiver rises to rst team status for his seventh gameAP PHOTOMiami wide receiver Jarvis Landry catches a pass from quarterback Ryan Tannehill during Sundays game. Landry ranks second on the team with 22 catches. DOLPHINS AT JAGUARSWHO: Miami (3-3) at Jacksonville (1-6) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: Everbank Field, Jacksonville TV: CBS RADIO: No local affiliate TAMPA Gerald McC oy said the Tampa Bay defense is soft. Worse, he said, its on tape for all of the NFL to see. If you look out there on tape and you see a bunch of guys sitting on blocks, are you not earning the title of being soft? McCoy said Thursday. I mean, guys get so sensitive around the league, but we have to be men. This is a mans league. Were professionals and guys have issues with criticisms. Ive been getting criticized since Ive been in the NFL. I dont even feel it anymore. We have to accept what happened like I did last week. The Bucs (1-5) own the NFLs worst scoring and overall defense, a meringue-soft 34 points and 422.8 yards per game. The Play-Doh play on defense began in Week 3 at Atlanta with a 56-14 loss to the Falcons, with lots of help from the offense and special teams. It continued Oct. 5 when the Saints overcame an 11-point fourth-quarter decit to beat Tampa Bay 37-31. On the following Sunday, Ravens quarter back Joe Flacco threw ve touchdown passes in the rst 20 minutes of the Bucs 48-17 loss. The Bucs have no sacks in the past two games and only nine this season. Soft is about the worst description anyone can use for an NFL player, let alone a whole defense. Coach Lovie Smith isnt ready to embrace McCoys description, preferring a euphemism by saying his team needs to be more physical. Were not getting off blocks, we havent played as well as we need to, were not making as many plays as we need to, so all of the above, Smith said. I wouldnt use that word to describe our guys, but were not playing the type of football we need to, were not being Im going to say were not as physical as we need to be, is how I would say it, in all areas if one of our captains said that and hes out there playing, theres probably something to it right now, but we can change it. Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said injuries have affected the continuity of the defense. I dont think physicality has been lacking. Playmaking thats been lacking, Frazier said. McCoy took the blame for a poor performance against the Ravens, saying he did not play like a Pro Bowl defensive tackle. Thursday, he also played a little defense for the coaching staff. Players say its this, its that. No, its us, McCoy said. Weve just got to be tougher. Everybody. Mentally and physically. A lot of times you look on tape where guys are just sitting on blocks. Why? A lot of times where guys are just holding up blocks. No. Move them out of the way. Get open. If youre a corner, get off the block. Come help out. If youre supposed to drop at 10 yards, then drop at 10 yards. Dont drop at eight Its not coach Smith. Its us. For us as players, we just have to have a much more of a killer mentality. McC oy said the Bucs have made too many excuses: A new scheme, injuries, breakdowns. He wants players to take more accountability. If you dont have a good day at the ofce, just say that, he said. McCoy calls out soft defense 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, 105.9 FM TICKETS: AP PHOTOTampa Bay defensive tackle Gerald McCoy is left in the dust by Baltimore running back Justin Forsett during the teams game earlier this month. McCoy, one of the Bucs captains, challenged his teammates to stop making excuses and casting blame elsewhere. NFL: Tampa BayBy RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESCaptain says players can blame only themselves NFL: Tampa Bay notebookJackson says he wants to stayTAMPA Tampa Bay receiver Vincent Jackson has reportedly drawn interest from other NFL teams before next weeks trade deadline, but the 31-year-old said Thursday he wants to help turn around his team in Tampa Bay. In this business, those kind of things get talked about quite often. Each and every year, theres going to be guys moved around to different teams, Jackson said. Im not surprised by it. Obviously, I appreciate teams interest, but Im happy here in Tampa. Ive heard nothing here that would suggest Im going anywhere. Im going to let that pass on and keep doing my job. NFL Networks Ian Rapaport reported Sunday that the Bucs were getting tons of calls about Jackson, who hasnt been to the playoffs since 2006-09 with San Diego. Jackson has a team-high 25 catches for 344 yards and two touchdowns, but is paid among the top 10 receivers in the league, with a base salary of $10 million and two years left on his contract. Familiar foe: Bucs offensive tackle Anthony Collins spent his first six years in the NFL in Cincinnati, with Vikings coach Mike Zimmer as the Bengals defensive coordinator, so theres a familiarity with what hell line up against. I played against that for six years. I know the ins and outs of that and Im schooling my soldiers about a Mike Zimmer defense, Collins said. Its fun this week. Well be ready to play. Collins complimented the Vikings defense, especially defensive end Eversen Griffin, who is one sack off the NFL lead with seven this season after signing a lucrative extension in free agency.By GREG AUMAN and MATT BAKERTAMPA BAY TIMES DENVER Emmanuel Sanders waited six long weeks to join the list of players who have caught a touchdown pass from Peyton Manning. Now, he has four in less than a week. Manning and Sanders connected for a trio of touchdowns Thursday in Denvers 35-21 victory against San Diego. With the Chargers banged-up secondary double-teaming red-hot receiver Demaryius Thomas, Sanders caught touchdown throws of 2, 31 and 3 yards. The last one followed Chris Harris Jr.s interception of a ustered Philip Rivers. Rookie running back Juwan Thompson added two scoring runs as the Broncos (6-1) tightened their grip on the AFC West over the Chargers (5-3), who lost their second straight game. Manning nished 25 of 35 for 286 yards. Sanders caught nine passes for 120 yards, and Ronnie Hillman added 109 yards on 20 carries. Commissioner must testify: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has been told to testify in Ray Rices appeal of his indefinite suspension. Former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones, the neutral arbiter selected to hear the appeal, informed the parties of her decision Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the appeal have not been made public. The hearing will be held Nov. 5 and 6, two people familiar with the case told the AP on Tuesday. Jags face week without two cornerbacks: Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley said starter Alan Ball is highly unlikely to play because of a biceps injury. Ball traveled to San Francisco for a second opinion earlier this week, but the Jaguars (1-6) dont expect it to be a season-ending injury. Making matters worse for Jacksonville, Balls replacement, Dwayne Gratz, left practice Thursday with hip flexor tightness. All-Pro linebacker dies: John Bull Bramlett, a former professional football and baseball player who was nicknamed the Meanest Man in Football, has died. He was 73. Shelby County Mayors Office spokesman Steve Shular told The Associated Press that family members said the Memphis native died early Thursday. Bramlett had been in declining health. Bramlet, a two-sport star at Memphis, was drafted by the St. Louis baseball Cardinals out of college and played minor league baseball for three years before changing to pro football. He signed in 1965 with the Denver, which at that time were part of the American Football League. He also played for the Miami Dolphins (1967-68), Boston (now New England) Patriots (1969-70) and Atlanta Falcons (1971). Harvins role with Jets unclear: Percy Harvins role with the New York Jets on Sunday is shrouded in mystery. The newly acquired wide receiver could play a few snaps on offense. Or, a lot. He might play in the slot, on the outside running deep patterns or come out of the backfield. Or, all three. Hes just getting himself sort of integrated right now, so well see, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said. Lets get to game day here. Weve got another day and a half here. Well see exactly how he can integrate himself for us. Thing is, the Jets arent quite sure how much of the playbook Harvin will have down by kickoff against Buffalo. And, even if they did, theyll just keep everyone guessing especially the Bills. Around the league: Top pick Jadeveon Clowney said he expects to play for Houston on Sunday against Tennessee this week. He returned to practice last week for the first time since having arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler insisted receiver Brandon Marshall did not single out him or anyone else during his outburst following the loss to Miami last week. Cutler said Marshall didnt come near me and did not say my name. He added that the star receiver did not attack anyone personally with what he was saying. Denver released safety John Boyett from its practice squad a day after he was charged with assault, theft and harassment. Police said Boyett, 24, assaulted a cab driver, stole a shovel from a construction site and tried to hide from officers by covering himself in mulch early Wednesday in Greenwood Village, according to court documents. Tennessee will start rookie Zach Mettenberger at quarterback against Houston on Sunday. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said the decision to go with Mettenberger was made Tuesday.Broncos torch Chargers ailing secondary NFL NOTEBOOKArbiter rules commissioner must testifyBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTODenver quarterback Peyton Manning throws against San Diego during Thursdays game.

NHL ROUNDUPRed Wings rally, down Pens in OTDETROIT Justin Abdelkaders goal 4:16 into overtime capped a dramatic Detroit rally, giving the Red Wings a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night. The Red Wings scored twice with their goalie pulled in the nal 2:39 of regulation, tying the game on Niklas Kronwalls goal with 38.9 seconds to play. On the winner, Henrik Zetterberg deected Paul Martins clearing attempt from behind the net. The puck went right to Abdelkader in the slot, and he beat goalie Thomas Greiss to the stick side. Kronwall had two goals and an assist for Detroit. Pascal Dupuis and Olli Maatta scored in the rst period for the Penguins, and Chris Kunitz added a goal in the second. With 2:55 remaining in regulation, the Red Wings pulled goalie Jimmy Howard. The move paid off immediately when Zetterberg came down the middle and beat Greiss high to the glove side to make it 3-2. With Howard pulled again in the nal minute, Pittsburgh had the puck in the Detroit zone but was unable to get a shot through into the empty net. The Red Wings came down the other way on a rush, and rather than attempt a shot from around the crease, Pavel Datsyuk dropped a pass to Kronwall, whose shot from the high slot tied it. Predators 3, Blackhawks 2: In Nashville, Tenn., James Neal scored a natural hat trick on his bobblehead night, and the Nashville Predators edged the Chicago Blackhawks to become the last NHL team still unbeaten in regulation this season. The two Central Division rivals came in as the only teams yet to lose in regulation. They played into overtime six nights earlier in Chicago with the Blackhawks winning 2-1. Islanders 3, Bruins 2: In Boston, former Bruins backup Chad Johnson stopped 30 shots, and Kyle Okposo scored the go-ahead goal in the second period to help the New York Islanders snap a two-game losing streak. The Bruins played the last 50 minutes without captain and No. 1 defenseman Zdeno Chara, who left in the first period with an undisclosed injury. Frans Nielsen and Cal Clutterbuck also scored for the Islanders. Canucks 4, Blues 1: Ryan Miller made 31 saves in his return to St. Louis and the Vancouver Canucks scored three times in the third period to beat the Blues. Nick Bonino, Linden Vey and Jannik Hansen all scored in the third period to help the Canucks (4-2-0, 8 points) snap a two-game losing streak.

Page 6 SP The Sun /Friday, October 24, 2014 took some time to think about it. He talked to other former NFL players who got into coaching to ask what he was getting himself into. I thought about it for a week and a half and I decided I denitely wanted to give it a shot, Graham said. Im here in the area and I have a lot to give. It was something I really, really wanted to give a shot to. Basically, I want to give the experience I have back to the kids. And Graham has plenty of experience. Graham rushed for 5,710 yards for Mariner, becoming a Lee County legend before graduating and heading to Florida in 1998. After going undrafted, he played eight seasons for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, topped by his 898-yard season in 2007. That experience makes his words mean more than some. When it comes to things on the football eld, it gives me some credibility, Graham said. Off the football eld, maybe not so much. Youve got to earn your stripes as a coach. He has taken plenty of guidance from coaches that he trusts on various levels, such as former Bucs assistants Steve Logan and Rich Bisaccia, South Fort Myers coach Grant Redhead and members of his own staff. The biggest things he has picked up are to take his time and to be a good listener. But its Grahams duties away from the eld that have been his biggest adjustment not just the masses of paperwork that go into most coaching jobs, but staying on top of his kids and making sure theyre making good decisions. Then again, that was part of the appeal of coaching for Graham. He jumped right to the top taking over a varsity program without any coaching experience. Graham also took the job without having an on-campus job a situation he acknowledges is unique. During the day, he runs an insurance agency with his wife. I took it all in at the rst shot and just kind of jumped in, Graham said. Im chasing a number of things and Im learning a heck of a lot. Im really hoping I have the high learning curve that I think I have. Well see. There are things Im looking forward to getting better at. Every day is something new for me. Tonight, that something new is the Red Knights hosting Lemon Bay with a postseason berth out of District 5A-14 still very much in play. North Fort Myers (3-4, 2-2) can reach the postseason, but only if a lot of things break right. Lemon Bay (4-3, 2-2) is in a similar position. Its a huge game for us and one weve got to have, Graham said. Weve got to go out and win and we expect to do so.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comGRAHAMFROM PAGE 1FORT MYERS NEWS-PRESS PHOTOFormer Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Earnest Graham is the rst-year coach at North Fort Myers High School.

LAST WEEK: Braden River had a bye; North Port lost at Sarasota, 28-13. TALKING POINTS: Braden Rivers last loss was on Nov. 1 of last season, a 45-27 setback against Palmetto. Braden River runs a versatile offense with quarterback Jacob Huesman and the threepronged running attack of Carlos Crawford, Raymond Thomas and Jaylin Austin. Pirates are 3-0 against Manatee County opponents (Lakewood Ranch, Southeast, Bayshore), outscoring them 72-6. Bobcats defense is led by a line featuring Darius Jackson and Roman Morales. Mike Innello is the probable starter at quarterback for North Port. He has 434 passing yards this season with three touchdown passes and four interceptions. Junior Stantley Thomas leads the area with 567 receiving yards on 26 catches.IDA BAKER AT CHARLOTTE WHEN: 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Tarpon Stadium, Charlotte High School, Punta Gorda RECORDS: Ida Baker 4-4; Charlotte 3-3.

TALKING POINTS: Bulldogs QB Sage Attwood was named his districts most valuable player this week, and hes had an outstanding season with 1,210 passing yards and 11 touchdowns, but he also leads Ida Baker with 436 rushing yards and 12 TDs. Junior LB Nick Richards leads Ida Baker with 81 tackles, including 63 solos. Charlotte WR Trevor Laurent has become a bigger part of the Tarpons offense as the season progresses. He leads the area with 26 catches. Elijah Mack leads the Tarpons ground game with 516 rushing yards (fourth in the area) and seven TDs. Charlotte has lost its last two games and hasnt had a three-game losing streak since 2007.LEMON BAY AT NORTH FORT MYERS WHEN: 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Moody Field, North Fort Myers High School, North Fort Myers RECORDS: Lemon Bay 4-3, 2-2 in District 5A-14; North Fort Myers 3-4, 2-2. LAST WEEK: Lemon Bay defeated Mariner, 41-7; North Fort Myers had a bye. TALKING POINTS: Both teams have complex scenarios for reaching the playoffs; losing this game would eliminate either team. Lemon Bays spread option can be a handful. RB Brayden Curry has 29 carries for 293 yards in the Mantas last two games. But Anthony Marinola leads the team with 559 rushing yards and 10 TDs. LB Brian McGill is the leader of Lemon Bays defense. North Fort Myers is led on the ground by Eric Russaw (400 yards) and Zaqaundre White (370 yards). Red Knights QB Quinn Bourque has three TD passes and two interceptions on the season. Rob Shore try to get us back to that Olympic status. As we bring in events like the IFDS Worlds in 2012 and the F18 Americas in 2015, those are steps in the right direction for highlighting and showcasing the venue of Charlotte Harbor as a premier racing harbor in the country and in the world. CHR secured the event with the help of a grant from the Charlotte Harbor Visitors and Convention Bureau. With their support, Gleason traveled to Corpus Christie, Texas, to present the organizations bid to U.S. F18 Class Association President Mike Easton. While there were several other organizations who had expressed inter est in hosting the event, Gleason said CHR was the only one to submit a formal presentation. Sean Doherty, the Charlotte Harbor Visitors and Convention Bureaus sales and marketing manager, said he hasnt yet had a chance to estimate what the direct economic impact of hosting the event would be, but he does expect it to be pretty signicant. In October, we can denitely use the tourism dues. So it will have that effect, Doherty said. But also, perhaps even more importantly, it will bring the exposure of a regatta to people who like to sail from all over the country. A lot of people probably dont know what we have here. This is a vehicle to help get that word out. The 2015 event will be the third running of the Americas Championship. The rst was held in Sarasota in 2013, and this years event is being held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in December. Both Gleason and Doherty hope the event will attract other sailing competitions to the area, as well as increase tourism from more casual boaters. Boaters are a very desirable demographic for any community, Gleason said. So its not only the economic impact of having the events in town, which is signicant, but theres also the chance that, if word spreads through the regattas that Charlotte Harbor is a great sailing venue, it gets on peoples radars as a place they might want to live or visit.HARBORFROM PAGE 1 TODAY Football Ida Baker at Charlotte, 7:30 p.m. Lemon Bay at North Fort Myers, 7:30 p.m. Braden River at North Port, 7:30 p.m. Cross country Lemon Bay at Celtic Invitational, Naples, TBA SATURDAY Swimming North Port in District 4A-6 meet at Long Center, Clearwater, 4:30 p.m. MONDAY Cross country DeSoto County in District 2A-11 meet at Dunedin High School, 9:30 a.m. Girls soccer Sarasota Christian at Lemon Bay, 6 p.m. Mulberry at DeSoto County, 7 p.m. Port Charlotte at North Port, 7 p.m. Venice at Charlotte, 7 p.m. TUESDAY Girls golf Lemon Bay in Class 2A tourna ment at Mission Inn Resort and Club, Howey-in-the-Hills, 9 a.m. Swimming Lemon Bay in District 2A-9 meet at Avon Park High School, noon Girls soccer First Baptist at Imagine, 6 p.m. DeSoto County at Hardee, 7 p.m.PREP SCHEDULEline, and ran into each other on several more. Montgomery, Maureen Ryan and the rest of the hitters that looked potent early started hitting the ball into the net. And it seemed like every time they were on the verge of getting a run going, someone made a service error. Lemon Bay coach Stacy DeWolfe said after the match that she thought many of those mistakes would have been avoided if the Manta Rays had closed the rst game. We wouldve been pumped up, she said. Losing that rst one that was so tight was kind of a killer. We had some errors at times that really hurt us. We couldnt get the defense going or our blockers going, we were just off today. DeWolfe also credited some of the struggles to the long bus ride. Lemon Bay struggled at Sebring earlier this season as well, and DeWolfe tried to break up this trip so that her team would be more fresh by the time the match started. She tried to nd a recreation center where the team could practice nearby, but couldnt nd anything better than a picnic area, so she settled for letting her team get off the bus and at least move around at a Circle K in Zolfo Springs. It wouldve be nice to practice a few plays and go through our progressions, she said. When the team got back on the bus to go home after the loss, the players boarded in high spirits with the district runner-up trophy.

Coach fired over watermelon celebration is rehired: A South Carolina high school football coach was reinstated after he was fired over postgame celebrations that officials said had racial overtones, with players smashing watermelons and making ape-like sounds. Charleston County School Superintendent Nancy McGinley reinstated Bud Walpole of Academic Magnet High School in Charleston County after meeting with him, she said in a statement Wednesday. Walpole agreed to participate in any district sensitivity training and counsel players before games to be vigilant of their actions in dealing with those of different races or backgrounds, according to the statement. Walpole was fired earlier this week after McGinley was notified that the celebrations offended the parent of an opposing player. The players from the predominantly white school gathered and a face with eyes, a nose, a smile and a mouthful of teeth was drawn on the watermelon. Two players smashed the watermelon, and the others made chanting sounds before eating the fruit as a postgame snack.Bobcat girls take third at Tri-County PREP ROUNDUPFROM STAFF, WIRE REPORTS N F L S U N D A Y T I C K E T EVERY GAME EVERY SUNDAY VIEW FROM OUR 5 TV MONITORS Howards serves the COLDEST BEER around, CRAFT BEER & FROSTY COCKTAILS Draft Beer Buy One....Get One FREE Plus, your drinks stay perfectly chilled on our unique bar top frost rail When youre hungry try Howards Hearty Bar Menu, served until 11 pm Closed on Mondays 70 North Indiana Avenue 941-473-0171 488047 ES


For decades, Meals on Wheels of Charlotte County has been delivering hot, nutritious meals to area seniors in need. After much heavy use, the organizations kitchen is in dire need of updated equipment. Without support from the community, the future of the program could be in jeopardy. Meals on Wheels of Charlotte County delivered its rst meals Feb. 7, 1971. By using two church kitchens for cooking food, the group was able to provide meals to seniors who were unable to prepare meals for themselves. In 1972, construction began for the organizations new building, which would serve as their permanent home. The building provided enough room for ofce space, a thrift store and a well-equipped kitchen. Today, the same Keep the wheels turningBy NATALIE SHARBAUGHHERALD CORRESPONDENTHERALD PHOTO BY NATALIE SHARBAUGHMeals on Wheels of Charlotte County Marketing Coordinator Debbie Amaral presents a meal to Elizabeth Slam. Not only is Slam thankful for the food, but she also appreciates the brief visit from the driver each day her meal is delivered.Nonprofit needs new kitchen to prepare meals Nicole NolesEDITORS Port Charlotte is my hometown, and I lived here for more than 40 years. There are, however, some things (and many people) who have been here longer than I have. Meals on Wheels is one of them. Meals on Wheels delivers a win-win for everyone. For people who are unable to prepare nutritious food for themselves, Meals on Wheels helps keep residents independent and in the comfort of their homes. For the volunteers, many of whom are retired, Meals on Wheels offers an opportunity to give back to the community on a face-to-face basis each day. Even though there is a minimal cost for the meals (and many qualify for free meals), its not enough to sustain the large organization that serves Charlotte County today. In addition to meal fees, the nonprot takes donations of used items from clothing to household goods, and operates a thrift store to generate extra funds for the program. But when it comes to nancing the cost of a new kitchen to keep up with the demand for meals, the thrift store isnt enough to turn that dream into a reality. Fall is the perfect time to clean out the house and donate to Meals on Wheels. Dont have stuff to donate? They will be happy to accept monetary donations, too. Extra hands are always appreciated as well, so if you have time to spare, consider volunteering, either in the shop, in the kitchen, or as a driver. Check out this weeks feature story by Natalie Sharbaugh to learn more about what Meals on Wheels does for the citizens of our county and how they plan to update their facilities. Meals dont make themselves, but for those who depend on Meals on Wheels, its a lifeline and a personal connection that makes a difference every day. The volunteers who make that happen are what makes their program, and our area, a warmer, friendlier place to live.Warm meals delivered daily by warmer heartsLVL Up Gaming offers vintage video gamesHERALD PHOTO BY ROBERT NELSONLVL Up Gaming owner Dennis Fortunato has thousands of items at LVL Up Gaming games new and old and in a wide variety of genres to consoles and accessories.

Herald Page 4 Friday, October 24, 2014 kitchen is being used to prepare meals each weekday. Henry Ereth has been the President of the Board of Directors for Meals on Wheels of Charlotte County for the past seven years. He rst became involved with the organization when he and his wife began delivering meals more than 17 years ago. I believe in the program because we are helping seniors in our community, Ereth said. Sometimes were the only contact that these people have. It gives us the chance to check up on them and see that theyre OK. Currently, Ereths main focus is on raising the $48,000 that is needed in order to update the kitchen. Meals on Wheels of Charlotte County does not receive funding from the county, state or national government and relies solely on donations from the community. In addition to a few hardworking employees, volunteers are at the heart of the entire operation. The organizations thrift store, which is managed by Judy Brown, is situated in one half of the building. Donations of furniture, household items, mens and womens clothing, books and more are accepted. Volunteers help sort through the items and prepare them for sale to the public. All of the money brought in through sales goes directly to the organization. The thrift store is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Each weekday, kitchen workers and volunteers arrive at 6 a.m. to begin cooking. Meals are prepared under the direction of Kitchen Manager Sandy Henning. Each meal consists of soup, an entre (beef, chicken or sh), a starch (potato, rice or pasta), a vegetable, bread and butter and dessert. Special meals can be made for those who require low sodium or have diabetic needs. While it can sometimes cost more to prepare the food, recipients are only charged $5 per meal. Free meals are available to those who can prove nancial need. Around 10 a.m., drivers begin to line up their automobiles outside of the kitchen doors. Each driver is responsible for one of 12 current routes throughout Charlotte County. When the food is ready, the meals are loaded into the drivers vehicles along with a list of recipients. All of the Meals on Wheels drivers are volunteers. Drivers can help out once a week, once a month, or on an as-needed basis and usually spend no more than two hours driving their route. These seless individuals directly make a difference in the lives of seniors, because many of them are delivering so much more than just a meal. Elizabeth Slam of Port Charlotte receives a meal each weekday. I eat every bit of it, said Slam. Nothing goes to waste. Shes grateful for the food she receives, but shes even more thankful for the human interaction. I enjoy it when someone comes because I dont get much company. When somebody brings me a meal, it makes me feel so good, said Slam. On average, Meals on Wheels of Charlotte County delivers 120 meals each weekday. The organization hopes to raise the numbers by December. Recipients can receive a meal each weekday or on certain days of the week, provided that the selected days remain the same from week to week. The deliveries are organized thanks to Ofce Manager Merle Larson and Clerical Assistant Valeria Thompson. Debbie Amaral is the owner of Turning Heads Salon in Port Charlotte. She splits her time between being a business owner and serving as the Marketing Coordinator for Meals on Wheels of Charlotte County. By bringing awareness throughout the community, she helps raise much needed funds for the organization. With several hundred other nonprot organizations in the area, Amaral says that her job can be a challenge. But she doesnt let that discourage her. I really do believe in the cause, said Amaral. Im so passionate about it because of the people. It just breaks your heart to know that some of them dont have any family here. Maxwell May is another Meals on Wheels recipient. For May, his meal is a constant reminder of the love from his family. Its hard for me; my kids are not here. They live all over the country, said May. They want to make sure that I have a meal; that I wont go without it. May spends most of his days outdoors taking care of his own garden. Although he is 92 years old, his landscaping could put the work of professionals to shame. But he admits that without help, his eating habits leave a lot to be desired. Because of his regular meal delivery, hes able to receive the nourishment he needs to keep living a healthy life. The community is invited to help area seniors by donating to Meals on Wheels of Charlotte County. Monetary donations can be made through the mail or online. Major credit cards are accepted by phone. Items for the thrift store can be dropped off between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. each weekday. For those who are willing to donate their time, drivers and volunteers are always needed. The groups annual giving campaign will take place in mid-November. According to the Meals on Wheels Association of America website, nearly one in six seniors in America, a total of 8.8 million, may not know when they will have their next meal or where it will come from. While Meals on Wheels organizations across the country are currently helping 2.5 million hungry and isolated seniors, its estimated that another 6.3 million remain unaccounted for. Thanks to Meals on Wheels of Charlotte County, local seniors have been able to receive hot and nutritious meals for more than four decades. But the kitchen equipment desperately needs to be updated, and the organization needs help from the community in order to cover the expenses. Without our help, area seniors may no longer be able to receive something that many of us take for granted. As long as Meals on Wheels keeps coming each day, I know that Ill always have something to eat, said May.WHEELS: Meals on Wheels needs kitchen makeover to keep up with demandFROM PAGE 1 COST FOR THE MEALS ON WHEELS KITCHEN UPDATEWalk in Freezer $4,979 Walk in Cooler $3,122 Shelves for freezer and cooler (8 shelves at $330 each) $2,640 8-Burner Gas Range $2,198 Pot Filler $995 Storage Shelves (2 shelves at $80) $160 Warming Rack Oven $5,038 Pan Rack $529 Shipping and Handling $10,000 Labor $16,000 Paint Kitchen $2,500 Total Cost $48,161 HERALD PHOTOS BY NATALIE SHARBAUGHFrom left, kitchen manager Sandy Henning, volunteer Bernie Grace along with kitchen assistants Judy Thomas and Sheila Benecke work hard to cook and prepare another days worth of hot, nutritious meals.

Friday, October 24, 2014 Herald Page 5 Answers on page 10. Jazz concert to raise funds for New Visions Nov. 15Local students are donating their time and talents to raise money for the ARC of Charlotte County, New Visions Program with a benet concert scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15, at the Cultural Center Theater, 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte. Students Helping Students will feature entertainment by the Lemon Bay High School Jazz Ensemble and Charlotte High Schools vocal group, Charisma. Tickets are $18. All proceeds will directly support the ARC of Charlotte County, New Visions program. ARC of Charlotte County is a 501(c)3 nonprot organization that provides an adult day training (ADT) program called New Visions for individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities. New Visions was developed to assist those individuals who aged out of the Charlotte County school system at age 21, but need to continue with daily living skills training. As with most individuals, continuous training enhances the ability to be more independent, which in turn increases self-esteem and productivity. There are no administrative costs for managing the New Visions Program as this is all done by volunteers, said Gerry Del Priore, who coordinates fundraising activities which benet the New Visions students. One hundred percent of the money that is raised through fundraising events, including Students Helping Students, stays with the local chapter of ARC and goes directly to improve the New Visions adult day training program by providing more educational tools in the classroom and more opportunities for students to apply their learned skills in the community. Help support ARC of Charlotte Countys mission of promoting the general health and welfare of all persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities by attending this event. Tickets can be purchased online at or at the Cultural Center Box Ofce, 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte.

Herald Page 10 Friday, October 24, 2014 The Port Charlotte Pirates JV football team continued to blow away their opponents and posted their fth straight shutout as they buried the Lemon Bay Mantas 41-0 in Englewood Oct. 1. The dominating swarming Pirate defense hasnt allowed a score in 17 quarters (two games were shortened due to lightening), while the offense has racked up 134 points. They beat Lemon Bay in their rst meeting 13-0 and had the ball on the 1-yard-line when the game was stopped. They downed cross town rival Charlotte by the same 13-0 score. The North Port game lasted just two quar ters with the Pirates coming out on top 20-0. The LaBelle Cowboys were sent back to the ranch with a 47-0 whipping. Speaking about the scoreless string Pirate Coach Chris Drummer said, Its more of a personal pride thing for me. Even when they got close (inside the 20-yard line) we didnt put our starters back in. In the fourth quarter with mostly substitutes in the game for the Pirates, the Mantas got inside the Pirate 20-yard-line. After two penalties for an illegal man down eld and illegal procedure, Lemon Bay picked up a yard on rst down. The next three plays were all for negative yardage and the scoring threat was averted. The nal Manta scoring opportunity came in the nal seconds of the game as they marched inside the Pirate 25. On a nal Hail Mary pass attempt, linebacker Cody Douglass sacked the quarterback to end the game. I wasnt going to let it (score) happen. It felt great, said Douglass. It was Douglass second sack and fth tackle for loss of yards in the game. On the other side of the ball, the Pirates dominated with 28 rushes for 261 yards for an average of more than 9 yards per carry. Their only negative yards came on a ball carrier slipping as he cut back for a 2-yard loss and a bad snap that resulted in a 7-yard loss. The rst three plays of the game ran for 11, 10 and 14 yards before Josh Hobbs pushed it in from the one. Hobbs was the workhorse toting the pigskin 12 times for 102 yards and three scores. He found pay dirt from the 1-yard line to start the scoring. Hobbs scored in the third period from 12 yards out less than a minute after Brandon Mapp scored from the three. His nal score came from 20 yards out in the fourth to start the running clock. Sharmar Harvey had four carries for 69 yards, including a 25 yarder for the second touchdown in the opening quarter. The other touchdown came from Tyson Charles as he skirted the corner for 49 yards that gave the Pirates their 21-0 halftime lead. The Pirates had touchdowns called back on two successive plays in the second period. After a blocking below the waist call negated a 21-yard touchdown by Hobbs, a 40-yard score was wiped off the scoreboard when an ineligible man was down eld. Two plays later, Charles put it in for good with his 49-yard run. About the only things I can say that we need work on is cutting down on penalties and turnovers (one interception in the end zone at the half). Im sure Ill see more once I see the tape (of the game), added Drummer.Pirate defense smothers MantasBy STEVE KNAPPHERALD SPORTS WRITER HERALD PHOTOS BY STEVE KNAPPPort Charlottes Kyle Fratina puts pressure on Lemon Bays quarterback Logan Lydic in the JV 41-0 win on Oct. 1.

Friday, October 24, 2014 Herald Page 11 Charles Dickens wrote a novel about the differences between the aristocracy and peasants in London and Paris back in the mid 1800s. It was titled A Tale of Two Cities. The volleyball game with DeSoto County visiting Port Charlotte on Oct. 6 has similarities to that novel. In their rst match on Sept. 2, the Bulldogs dominated the young and inexperienced Pirates, sweeping them 25-6 and 25-11. In the North Port tournament on Sept. 20, the two teams met in the nal match of the day. The Pirates won the rst set and the Bulldogs rallied to win the next two sets for the match win. In their Oct. 6 match, the Pirates again won the rst set 25-21 and appeared to be well on their way to a sweep as they led 23-16 in the second set. They were playing like the aristocracy of London and Paris with every thing they wanted, and life was good. Then a 10-minute delay occurred as the referees checked the ofcial books at the scoring table and found two rotation violations. This error took two points off of their seven-point lead. With the adjusted score being 21-16, the Pirates were still in command of the game. As the action started, the Pirates suddenly became the peasants and couldnt get anything going their way. Their excellent passes, serves and enthusiastic hustle was gone. DeSoto County scored nine of the next 10 points to even the match with a 25-22 win. Pirate Freshman Celia Baermann said, We had that rotation problem and the long delay and we just couldnt get it back together after that. We played really good in that rst game, but were better than how we nished. The nal set had the feel of a varsity match. With the big crowd for Senior Night arriving and with the delay in the second set, the Pirates were playing in front of a larger crowd that they were used to seeing. The crowd cheered and both teams had long rallies and seemed to elevate their game with the fan support behind them. Trailing 11-8, the Bulldogs scored four of the nal ve points to put an end to the exciting match. We need to learn how to ght for the last few points at the end of the game so we dont lose a big lead. Thats really frustrating when we do that. The delay just got into our heads and we didnt play well after that, said Ashton Prater. The loss put an end to a four-match winning streak for the much improved Pirates. The delay got to the kids, and when we started back up we just didnt have what we had before the break. They (DeSoto) played real well after that and we didnt. I told the girls look how much better you are than the rst time you played DeSoto. Im really proud of them and the improvement they have made this season, said Pirate Coach Lacee Nina.A tale of two teamsBy STEVE KNAPPHERALD SPORTS WRITER HERALD PHOTOS BY STEVE KNAPPThe Port Charlotte JV team has made a lot of progress during the season and recently had a fourgame winning streak broken.

Serving Punta Gorda and Burnt Store A section of the SUN 16 pages n Aug. 13, the city of Punta Gorda celebrated 10 years of progress since Hurricane Charley. Today, another important milestone will be reached the 10th anniversary of the formation of TEAM Punta Gorda.

You can see it on the packed roadways, the waiting areas at local establishments and the pathways in and around Punta Gorda. Without a doubt, we are seeing more and more of our friends from up north setting up their winter homesteads, and thats a sure sign that the busy season is upon us. I wrote about this last week, reminding folks to keep tabs on the local happenings and to smile big for the many shutterbugs taking photos for the Sun and its various publications. This week, however, I would like to remind you all to keep the newspaper in the loop about all the events planned in Charlotte County. While its true we have eyes on the streets and ears to the ground, that doesnt mean we know about every event in Charlotte County. Its not possible. Thats why we rely on the public to tell us whats happening with local organizations, neighborhood communities, places of worship, schools and businesses. The more we know, the better we can help educate the public on how to get involved with the community. Plus, its very difcult to cover an event if we dont know its happening. If you want to see your open-to-thepublic event listed in the paper, or put in a request for coverage, call the main newsroom line at 941-206-1100. You can also send me an email at pstaik@ I always share this information with my fellow editors in the Charlotte County ofces, so you can rest assured the information will get to the right party. And if your event has already passed, but you have a photo or two from the festivity, feel free to provide that infor mation to us as well. We gladly accept provided content, running submissions as space allows. As you go forth into our busy season, keep us in the loop of whats happening. Together, we will keep this city and all of Charlotte County in the spotlight. Tell the paper whats happening Pamela Staik PGH EditorPamela Staik is the editor of the Punta Gorda Herald.

Herald Page 4 Friday, October 24, 2014 Carmelo Mangiaco started in the restaurant business when he was just 15 years old. With his brother the head chef at Mama Nunzias, now Phils 41, he learned how to prepare menus and cook very quickly. Before long, he was the sous chef, second-in-command of the kitchen. Mangiaco is now ready to take his knowledge a notch higher. He recently purchased Presellers Restaurant at 209 W. Olympia Ave. and is going to bring a touch of Italy to the downtown area by opening his own place Carmelos Italian Ristorante. I learned quite a bit from my brother, Anthony, he said. We have a family owned restaurant in Venice called Angelos Italian Market & Bistro. I have been in this business a long time. Born in Siracusa, Sicily, Mangiaco moved to the United States as a child with his parents, originally settling in Connecticut before moving to Port Charlotte. After graduating from Port Charlotte High School, he worked at Mama Nunzias and then eventually became executive chef at Gratzzis Italian Grille in St. Petersburg. Mangiaco said he got homesick and wanted to return to Charlotte County to fulll his dream by opening his own authentic Italian restaurant. The theme is old-world Italian, with a charm that will resemble a restaurant and winery in Italy and his native Sicily. We will have the traditional dishes of pasta, veal, chicken, pork, seafood and a few twists on some old favorites as well, he said. There will be an extensive wine list as well as beer. The restaurant is currently undergoing a face-lift with a fresh coat of paint, according to Mangiaco. The outside courtyard will be spruced up, and there will be live music on the weekends. Inside, he plans to have Italian music softly playing in the background while customers dine. Besides himself and wife Christine, he said the business will be family operated with his in-laws assisting him. Everything should be ready to roll by the end of November, he said. Im not walking into this blindfolded. Ive watched and learned from other peoples mistakes. Mangiaco said he is a local boy and is glad to be opening a business where he grew up. Punta Gorda reminds me of Siracusa, with its old buildings and cobblestone streets, he said. Thats one of the reasons I purchased this place. This building has character. But it is not just the structure that has drawn Mangiaco back to Punta Gorda; it is the people as well. I want to get to know my customers, and I want to get them to know me, he said. I will come out of the kitchen from time to time and go from table to table, introducing myself, asking how everything is. I want to build relationships and get involved in the community. Every customer will be treated like family.Carmelos Italian restaurant to take place of Pressellers Al Hemingway PGH CorrespondentAl Hemingway is a freelance writer.

To check on the availability of last-minute tickets, visit or call 941-637-8326.TEAM Punta Gorda: in the beginningWhile businesses and government entities were overwhelmed restoring services and commerce to storm-ravaged areas so daily life could resume, members of the community started thinking into the future and saw the Charley destruction as an opportunity to build Punta Gorda into a community far better than anyone thought possible. Three months after the storm hit, TEAM Punta Gorda emerged as a grassroots volunteer organization of 2,000 citizens, 350 nancial contributors and 200 active volunteers. The group raised $200,000 and hired world-renowned urban planner Jaime Correa, who worked with TEAM volunteers to conduct public workshops and gather grassroots input on rebuilding the community. The outcome was the Citizens Master Plan 2005, a visionary document that continues to inspire the redevelopment of greater Punta Gorda. How exactly did this plan change the landscape of Punta Gorda? If you remember the old Professional Center and have been awed by the facade of its replacement, the Sunloft Center, thank the Citizens Master Plan. If you have marveled at the best-looking parking garage in Florida, thank the plan. If you have watched your children run among jets of water at the interactive fountain in a brandnew Laishley Park, thank the plan. If youve strolled Harborwalk or ridden the citys bike trails again, thank the Citizens Master Plan. Many organizations would have lost steam after completion of such an arduous effort. Few who were engaged in it would have predicted that TEAM would still be a major force in the community nine years later. The organization transitioned seamlessly into a new direction under the leadership of the late Judy Brentano, who held the CEO position in 2006-07. Brentano once said of her stewardship, Since the original mission was to fund and develop the Citizens Master Plan, and that had now been accomplished, TPG needed to redene itself, nd its purpose and set out on a mission that could grow from the solid foundation that was in place. She focused on revamping and strengthening TEAM internally. She put a strategic planning process in place, added a Higher Education Committee and a Government Relations Committee to improve dialogue with the city. She then planted the seeds for many beautication projects, as well as Linear Park. Her major area of focus and one she considered her legacy was working to ensure the auditorium destroyed by the hurricane would be rebuilt as an impressive gateway to the city per the master plan. The Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center stands as a proud tribute to that vision. Her husband, Mike, said of the contentious wrangling over the event center, She reached out and reopened lines of communication, and people started talking again.Completing the transitionReaching out became the hallmark of TEAM after now-councilmember Nancy Prafke took over the CEO position in 2008. She said, We were at kind of a threshold in the summer of 2007. We did a survey asking the community if we should continue to exist, and the overwhelming response was, Yes, we need you. She continued, A lot of the master plan had been done and the land development regulations changed to resemble what was in the plan, but there were a lot of elements people wanted to see happen in the community. Before, the recovery was the focus; we moved on to doing things to make the greater Punta Gorda commu nity a greater place to work, live and play quality of life enhancements. That work on the creation and the implementation of the master plan helped pave the way for the transition. Prafke said, By then, TEAM had begun to establish good relationships with governments and other organizations and demonstrate our value and ability to help in a positive way. The community gardens idea is a good example. It came from somewhere else; we brought the community together, got it started and handed it over.Staying connectedCurrent CEO Nancy Johnson, who TEAMFROM PAGE 1 ON THE COVERHERALD FILE PHOTOFrom left, Audrey Young, who came up with the painted bike idea; Mary Frances Adair; Sue McCormick, TEAM Punta Gorda Beautication Committee chair; Bobbi Crane, a prolic painter; and Debby Carey pose with the patriotic bicycle the committee placed in front of City Hall.

HERALD FILE PHOTOTEAM Punta Gorda worked closely with the city to bring the popular Punta Gorda Pathways to fruition. This section, Harborwalk East, extends from U.S. 41 northbound to Bayfront Health Punta Gorda. Friday, October 24, 2014 Herald Page 9 accepted the head job last year, can look back at a long list of TEAM accomplishments, including some initiatives started during her year-plus at the helm. Consider the numerous beautication and landscaping projects in parks and downtown, community gardens, paving projects, Artisans Atelier, the Waterfront Master Plan, partnering with the city of Punta Gorda on planning the multi-use path network, an innovative and wildly popular bike loaner program, the Pedal and Play in Paradise bike ride that draws people to town from all over the country, raising funds for the citys bike medic program, the Paint Your Heart Out program that xed up and painted houses for people who couldnt afford to do it themselves, as well as the painted bike program, which is responsible for the gaily decorated bicycle planters now seen all over town. This isnt even a complete list, but they are all indicative of what Johnson said is TEAMs continued inclusive approach to getting things done. This is something she calls facilitative leadership. We bring people together and get out of the way, she said. Its easier now because we have a seat at the table instead of being an outsider. People know we can get things done. We also have established relationships. If we have to get something done, we know who to go to. Johnson added, Its all about working together and treating each other right. We dont run anything except for the loaner bike program. We get something started and hand it over to a collaborator, whoever that might be. If they are at the table at the start, they have ownership in it. Johnson also credits the operating style of TEAM for its longevity, which is designed to bring in a constant ow of hardworking and dedicated volunteers. Theres no politics at all; we shut that down right away, she said. No dramas or soap operas either. Were very friendly and incorporate newcomers intentionally and regularly. We are actively recruiting younger people and mixing them into leadership positions. TEAM leadership doesnt get in the way of all this energy either. It operates on a committee system 18 in total and committee chairs have consider able latitude. Each committee has its own funding stream and strategic plan, Johnson said. TEAM leadership essentially acts as a think tank for ideas and vetting. Johnson said TEAM is always inter ested in new partners and ideas, and she sees a couple of recent projects as indicative of what TEAM wants to add to its accomplishment list during the next decade. One is a move to more community service-type projects, like Paint Your Heart Out. Another is the building of a youth leadership project. As always, however, the success of the all-volunteer organization boils down to the quality and dedication of its volunteers, and Johnson wants to nd more ways to make TEAMs legendary group feel loved through a better recognition process. Prafke, noting all her years of service, couldnt agree more. She said, This is a journey to which there will be no end. There will always be something else to make happen. That takes volunteers, and we have them. So many communities wish they had this kind of resource available, and Im grateful I was able to be a part of it.

Herald Page 10 Friday, October 24, 2014 It was shortly after noon on Oct. 14 when Bob Mott made the slow walk down the pathway leading to the student services building at Florida SouthWestern State Colleges Charlotte County branch. On any normal day at the college, Mott plays the part of the testing specialist. But on this day, his lunchtime would be spent perched atop the throne of a dunk tank, waiting for accurate fast pitches to send him splashing into the water below. This is my rst time, he said of being the target for a dunk tank. Although still dry at this point, Mott held little faith that would last for long. He was right. It only took the strength of 3-year-old Ava Pellegrino, with the help of her father, Anthony, to send Mott splashing into the water. Seeing as though it was the rst pitch of his shift, the wet and soppy writing was already on the wall for Mott. In fact, it would prove to be a very wet afternoon, not only for him, but various other volunteers. But it was all for a good cause. Throughout the school days on Oct. 13-14, members of the Student Government Association enticed students, faculty and friends to stop by the courtyard to partake in a fundraiser for breast cancer research. Well-known students, administrators and faculty members took to the dunk tank, sitting tall as others donated $2 for the chance to knock them into the water. The money raised throughout the fundraiser, as well as ancillary fundraisers taking place in the courtyard, will be donated in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For details on upcoming campus events, visit The Punta Gorda campus is located at 26300 Airport Road.Breast Cancer Awareness Month a splash at FSW campus Pamela Staik PGH EditorPamela Staik is the editor of the Punta Gorda Herald.

For $2, people could purchase a pitch, with all the money being donated to breast cancer research. Freshman Geaciel Deltora, 18, winds up for a pitch during the dunk-tank fundraiser. Although he hit the target with an accurate pitch, freshman Geaciel Deltora, 18, was dismayed to see nothing happened. He decided to run up and tag the target anyway, sending John Giamanco, the treasurer of the Student Government Association, for a dip in the tank.

Friday, October 24, 2014 Herald Page 11 The Visual Arts Center, located at 210 Maud St., begins its next session of art classes on Oct. 27. Up until the week of Dec. 13, 21 of the centers talented teachers will be sharing their knowledge of various art techniques during the session, with scheduled classes including topics on drawing, painting, printing, ber, jewel ry, pottery, sculpture and stained glass. Art technology classes, such as digital photography, publishing, computer skills and website design, have also been scheduled. Because of the VACs many classrooms and facilities, artists come from long distances to teach, some commuting from Naples, Marco Island and Sarasota. The students come from long distances, too, although most live in and around Charlotte County. Since it opened in 1988, the VAC has expanded three times to its present size. Many would-be artists moving to the area have learned their craft at the VAC, and many established artists chose Punta Gorda as their home because of the center. Mary Ann Tipton, the executive director of the VAC, said the center is blessed to have so many extremely talented artists whose love of their craft encourages them to teach others. They do it for the love of art, she said. Many of the instructors donate their time and talent to the VACs many outreach programs, such as the summer art camp for children and teenagers. Some of these teachers also instruct at various other locations in the region. The centers three galleries are always lled with ne art, and the Goff Gallery is used mainly to display VAC members work. The gift shop allows visitors to purchase one-of-a-kind gifts, from pottery and jewelry to paintings and ber items, many of which have been created by members who also volunteer their time as either docents or gift shop personnel. The new class schedule begins Oct. 27, and it continues until the week of Dec. 13. Workshops, classes and shows have been planned for the upcoming 2015 season, too. Beginner and advanced students are encouraged to check out the offerings. For information on the classes, contact the VAC at 941-639-8810 and ask for Cathy Lindenauer, who is the education director. You can also stop by the Maud Street center, located just across the street from Fishermens Village, and talk to the person at the front desk. The VAC is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays.

None is more important than the 50th, which tends to be the last or ganized event for many high school alumni groups due to the inescapable inrmities of old age. Its partly a return to roots with a little closure thrown in the mix. In recognition of entering that stage of life, the CHS classes of 1964 and 1965 put together a full slate of bonding events last weekend that drew graduates from as far away as Las Vegas, Kansas and South Dakota. The weekend began with a social event on Oct. 17 at the home of Keith and Diane Cain, a tour of the new school on the morning of Oct. 18 and a gala that evening at the Isles Yacht Club. Eileen (Budong) Laughlin, a grad, retired from the Charlotte County Property Appraisers ofce after 30 years. After Hurricane Charley, she moved to Topeka, Kansas, where her daughter lives. Her mother lives here, and she retains strong links to her roots. During the school tour, she said, I missed the last one, and I just had to come to this one. The classes of 1964 and 1965 were very tight, small and close-knit. There was a lot of intermarriage. Glorie Anna (Bennett) Johnston of Tampa, class of agreed, saying, When the email I received said this may be our last reunion, panic set in. You just want to touch base when you lose touch. This place is in our DNA, for sure. Linda Travers made the trip from Atlanta for the same reason. She said, The last one I came to was a long time ago. I just couldnt get over how old everybody was. I just decided if this was going to be the last one, I had to come. Jolivet Thomas, a Punta Gorda native and a member of the class of has strong memories of his limited time at CHS. During the days of segregation, he had to take a long bus ride to Fort Myers his rst three years of high school before enrolling at CHS in 1964. He said, From here, it was about a half-hour ride. From Englewood, it was an hour and a half. It (the racial issue) was very different back then. It was accepted, and thats the way it was. Now, its different. I feel like part of the class now more so than then. Local Randy Ann Bechtel, class of has been the primary organizer of the past few reunions, and she acknowledged the bittersweetness of the 50th event. She said, This will probably be the last one, at least the last one Im doing. A lot of people came from far away to attend. Its also the biggest one after the 25th, and thats with the loss of 38 members of the class and 38 from That tells you what it means.Reunion brings Tarpon grads back to Punta Gorda HERALD PHOTOS BY GORDON BOWERABOVE: The Charlotte High School classes of 1964 and 1965 pose for a group photo before beginning a tour of CHS.

Herald Page 14 Friday, October 24, 2014 Freshmen Aaron Rivers and Nicole Burg are new to Charlotte High Schools campus. Burg and Rivers both attended Punta Gorda Middle School the previous year. Their switch from middle to high school was made a little smoother knowing their former principal, Cathy Corsaletti, would be joining them for the ride, becoming the new principal at CHS. We dont feel like were the only ones lost, Rivers said. I like her as a principal, so Im happy about her moving, Burg added. It makes the transition a little bit easier. At Punta Gorda Middle, Burg was active in the drama and band programs and continues to be involved with both. This year, she plays the ute in the Silver King Marching Band and is taking a theater class. Rivers played soccer at PGMS and continues to do so at Charlotte High. In addition to soccer, he is now a member of Charlottes cross country team, and he is taking some honors classes along with law studies, computer technology and the Health Opportunities through Physical Education class. During his classes, Rivers has noticed that the teacher-student relationships are different at CHS than at the middle school. They treat us more like adults than at the middle school, Rivers said. Lunchtime at Charlotte High is handled differently than at Punta Gorda Middle, too. After getting her lunch, Burg enjoys being able to sit wherever she wants as opposed to being assigned to a table.Freshmen adjust to Tarpon lifeBy JACQUELINE VAN DER MEULEN CHS JUNIOR CONTRIBUTORSTarpon Page contributors are students at Charlotte High School.

She is also taking several honors classes along with human geography, an Advanced Placement course. As a freshman at Charlotte High School, Aaron Rivers enjoys the new freedom he is given. He plays soccer and runs cross country at the high school. The Charlotte High School junior varsity football team seemed to be on its way to a comfortable win during the Oct. 8 game against the Southeast High School Seminoles. The Tarpons had a 19-6 lead entering the fourth quarter, and the Tarpons defense was playing well. The offense was chewing up the clock on the way to a 310-yard rushing game, and Dandy Don Meredith could be heard rehearsing his song, Turn Out the Lights. Freshman Jordan Deackoff had already scored two touchdowns and was picking up positive yardage on all but one of his 22 carries for the night. His seven rst-half carries resulted in ve rst downs and a touchdown. In the Tarpons 14-play drive in the third quarter, Deackoff toted the pigskin eight times, including the nal three rushes, which resulted in a 1-yard plunge to give the Tarpons a 19-6 lead. The Seminoles scored with 4 minutes and 14 seconds left in the game, getting within a touchdown of tying the game. The Tarpons had used good ball control to dominate the time of possession, and it seemed as though the team was ready to run out the clock. When the Tarpons got the ball on its nal possession, spectators could see Deackoff was the man they were going to feed the ball. After Ny Harvey was stopped for no gain on the rst play, Deackoffs number was called on the next six plays. He picked up 38 yards on those six touches and, most impor tantly, kept the chains and the clock moving. Quarterback Michael Gunderson car ried the ball to give Deackoff a break and he fumbled. It was the seventh fumble or muff of the night for the Tarpons. They misplayed all three kickoffs and two punts and even fumbled the ball on an extra point try. As had been the case in all of the drops, the Tarpons recovered the ball. This time was no different, as Deackoff was there to scoop up the bouncing ball and carried a tribe of Seminoles on his back for 5 more yards. Before Deackoff fell to the ground, however, he fumbled. This time there was no Tarpon there to save the day, and the Seminoles recovered the ball with 1 minute to play, trailing by seven points. Southeast moved the ball easily in the air, giving the hometown fans something to worry about. A big sack by William Comer at mideld seemed to end the threat with 9.9 seconds left to play. A long pass was completed down to the Charlotte 11yard line with 1 second left on the clock. The time expired before they could run another play, and the Tarpons escaped with a 19-12 thrilling win. The win pushed the teams record to 3-2, with all the wins happening at home. Tarpon head coach Brendan Toop said, Yes, we are going to work on fumbles in practice tomorrow. We havent had any problem with them in practice, but it almost cost us the game tonight. Deackoff was the main man tonight because they were weak in the middle and he could exploit that weakness. If they would have stopped him, then we have plenty of speed guys to go outside. It was a good team effort, and our defense held them at the end. The Seminoles led 6-0 after the rst period. Harveys 27-yard burst tied the game with 2 minutes and 34 seconds left in the rst half. Deackoffs rst touchdown came with 10 seconds left in the half to give the Tarpons a 13-6 advantage at the break. After that fumble, I just tried to keep my head up and depend on my teammates to come through, Deackoff said. And we did with a win. Deackoff, who led the team with 22 carries, good for 130 yards, was also part of the defense that stopped the nal drive of the game. Harvey also cracked the century mark with 101 yards in 12 touches. Harvey picked up 89 of those yards in the rst half, while Deackoff carried the load with 15 carries in the second half, resulting in ve rst downs and 63 yards.Tarpons hold on in 19-12 football thriller HERALD PHOTOS BY STEVE KNAPPCharlotte High School junior varsity football player Tyler Midki attempts to block a pass as teammate Nathan McCann follows behind.

Friday, October 24, 2014 Herald Page 15 It would have been a surprise to see Port Charlotte High Schools junior varsity volleyball team beat the Char lotte High School Tarpons on Oct. 13. As expected, the Tarpons shutout the Pirates 25-10 and 25-11 in Punta Gorda. The Pirates have a very young team with many players in their rst year of playing. The Tarpons, however, have been dominating their opponents with a very skilled and experienced team. Many of the Tarpons have been playing together for years as a club team, and the members just have more repower than the Pirates at this time. In the North Port Invitational tournament on Sept. 20, the Tarpons cruised through the tournament undefeated. The Pirates, meanwhile, failed to win a match. Playing in the Tarpon gym with a big and loud crowd behind them, it was going to be difcult for the Pirates to keep up with the stamina of the Tarpons. The Pirates did stay close to the Tarpons at the beginning of the sets, but a couple of long runs put the game out of reach. The Pirates led 7-6 in the rst set, but two six-point runs by the Tarpons Victoria Naskle and Abby Hayse followed by the nal three points coming off of the southpaw slants of server Caitlin Giacolone proved too much for the Pirates to handle. Ahead by just one point early in the second set, the Tarpons Marissa Stack ran off a season high of 11 consecutive points to blow open a close game. It was the longest run for me this year, but Ive had longer ones in the past, explained Stack. The Tarpons downed the Pirates 25-11. They then took their show on the road the next night, traveling to DeSoto County. It was more of the same. The Tarpons had too much repower and experience for the Bulldogs. After stay ing close early in the contest, the Tarpons went on a run and outscored the Bulldogs 16-5 for a 25-9 win. Tarpon coach Jill Damico substituted liberally in the second set, with no change in the outcome. Charlotte jumped out to a 9-2 lead that stretched to 16-4 and ended with a 25-16 Tarpon win. Damico is proud of the progress her team has made during the season. Emily Vaughn was really improved, she said. We always knew she could hit, but now she is more consistent. Weve had so many girls get better as the season progressed that I couldnt name them all. But the team members are aware on where they need to improve. Naskle, for example, said, I still need to work on my defense. Hayse said, I need to work on communicating with my teammates and trying to stay deep and make better passes. Both Tarpons agreed that their best memory of the season was the North Port tournament when they went undefeated and won the championship.Tarpons sweep Pirates, Bulldogs HERALD PHOTO BY STEVE KNAPPLEFT: The 2014 Charlotte High School junior varsity volleyball team had a lot of talent and experience this season as they rolled to a 17-3 record.
