Chris and Eva Worden could have gone anywhere. They both have masters degrees in horticulture from the University of Maryland. They both have doctorates. Chris degree is in crop science from the University of Connecticut, while Evas is in ecosystem management from Yale University. They could have stayed up north, establishing cool organic farms there. They could have taken their extensive knowledge and education to the Miami area, where Eva grew up and has family. Instead, they developed an 85-acre U.S. Department of Agriculturecertified organic farm off Bermont Road in the eastern portion of Charlotte County, where they also are living, raising their children and preserving some of the land. Were feeding people healthy food and were working with nature and providing jobs to people that are enjoyable and gratifying, Eva said. To say theyve put down roots here would be both literal and kind of funny to word-nerds. Worden Farm has been featured on The Nightly News with Brian Williams, Americas Heartland, Florida Travel+Life, Florida Trend, and other publications. They also are recipients of the Florida Innovative Farmer Award, and have been named Organic Farmer Experts by the Organic Trade Association, states their website. So whats the difference between a regular farm and a USDA-certified organic farm? Organic is a labeling term that indicates that the food or other agricultural product has been produced through approved methods, states the USDAs website. These methods integrate cultural, biological and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance and conserve biodiversity. Synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation and genetic engineering may not be used. Heres just one example that separates the Worden Farm from Wordens educate, feed community As 2014 winds down, the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce is closing in on a record number of annual drug arrests a feat they say has led to a decline in other crimes. Authorities say taking narcotics off the streets has helped result in the fewest reported burglaries since at least the 1990s, and the least amount of theft complaints since 2000 gures reected in recently-released crime statistics by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. It always goes back to drugs, said CCSO Criminal Investigations Commander Capt. Les Partington, pointing out many narcotics users Crime report: Area thefts, burglaries, reach recent lowBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERCRIME | 6 US 41 drainage project ahead of schedulePORT CHARLOTTE Almost a full year into the massive microtunneling project under U.S. 41, county ofcials said the drainage-improvement operation is about 70 percent done and continues ahead of schedule. But there is still plenty of work to be done before the unprecedented undertaking is wrapped up by June. A project of this magnitude presents all kinds of challenges, particularly when it came to keeping U.S. 41 open to trafc during construction. Remarkably, all has gone according to plan, said Jeff Keyser, county project manager. It denitely shows weve done our homework, he said. Key to any project is the design work done ahead of time, he said, plotting out each step and anticipating every possible outcome. For this project, which has never been tried before on this scale, the planning began six years ago. If the specs arent drawn right, it becomes a guessing game for the contractor. I dont foresee any problems whatsoever, Keyser said. Its a lot of communication, a lot of teamwork. All the drilling underneath U.S. 41 to install huge box culverts for increased drainage capacity at three different waterways was nished by September, Keyser said. Now work continues at the Elkcam Waterway, the largest construction site, and at the Fordham Waterway, where a damlike structure is being constructed to regulate water ow under U.S. 41. The weir will be completed within By GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERPROJECT | 6PUNTA GORDA Charlotte High School teacher Paul DeGaeta walked into the Habana Cigar Lounge and asked the owner, Jose Santiago, if he could donate four cigars to Sgt. Joseph Cantasano, serving with the 82nd Airborne Division in Afghanistan. Santiago jumped at the opportunity to help. In fact, Santiago had served 12 years in the U.S. Army with the 82nd Airborne, known as the All American Division, and 10th Special Forces Group in Germany. Paul came in with a package he wanted to send overseas to Joseph, Santiago said. When I heard he was with the 82nd Airborne I gave him a bundle of Francisco Mirandas, a bundle of Padrons and four other assorted cigars.

The Salvation Army Angel Tree is up in our ofce and we need your help! I love to write about good community ideas in this column. This one is very close to home, because it started with the Sun s copy desk chief, Nathan Lane. He sits right by me. A few years ago, Nathan noticed the tags on the newspapers Angel Tree. The Salvation Army brings the tags. Boys and girls in our community, who are in need, ll out the cards in response to the question, What do you want for Christmas? Then someone hangs the tags on the tree near our front door. Our wonder ful staff loves to pluck a ticket and go shopping for a needy young person. It feels good. But usually not if its a bike. Thats a big commitment and the bike cards usually hang around the longest. Thats what Nathan noticed. He saw four or ve tags still on the tree one year, and each one of them requested a bike. Nathan walked around the building, took up a collection, and before long, he had a few hundred bucks, more than enough for ve bikes. The next year, Nathan asked the Salvation Army for 10 bike tickets, and again he got more than enough. In 2013, Nathan collected enough for 37 bikes. We would have been able to buy more, but we received a check written out to Bike Fund, and the bank wouldnt let us cash it. This year, he has set the bar at 40 bikes. That means we need some help from the community to the tune of about $3,000 to get this done. Nathan has a team in place to buy as many bikes as possible before the Dec. 16 deadline. Nathans elves will bring the bikes to the Charlotte Sun do any assembly needed, make sure seats and handlebars are tight and that the tires are inated, and deliver them to the Salvation Army. I have to admit, its always a fun day at the ofce, when wrenches and ratchets, screwdrivers and Allen wrenches are making a joyful noise. There are big bikes for teenagers, and tiny bikes for the little ones. Some have baskets, some have training wheels that need installing. Its not unusual to hear the honk of a horn or the brriiiing of a little metal bell. A bike is the kind of thing every kid needs. If youre little, you need to learn how to use one. When youre a certain age, it can be your primary form of transpor tation. This is especially true if you have a parent who works, and you need to be someplace. Weve already got a few dollars in the bike fund. If we could do it all, we would. To get to 40, we need some help. Can you help? Chris Porter is the executive editor of the Sun Newspapers.What boy or girl wouldnt want a bike for Christmas?HELP US PLAY SANTAIf youd like to donate toward the Suns bike collection, contact Nathan Lane at 941-206-1138 or nlane@ sun-herald.com.

Our Town Page 6 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, December 3, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE steal to get money for their habits. Weve been tracking the most prolic offenders we have in property crimes and also following the most prolic drug offenders. . Overall, crime is down. According to numbers provided by the sheriffs ofce, the agency is on pace to make more drug-related arrests this year than 2013s total of 1,447 the most in the CCSOs 93-year history. And, semiannual crime statistics just released by the FDLE show there were only 283 burglaries reported in the rst six months of 2014 (during the last six months of 2011, there were 640 such reports). There were 1,054 thefts over the same period, down from 1,366 at the end of 2011. They say 60 percent of crimes are committed by 6 percent of people, Partington said. We are going after those people. Most of the rest of the crimes are crimes of opportunity. The most recent FDLE semiannual Uniform Crime Report reects index crimes, which include murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, theft and grand theft auto. For the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce, the total crime index or, the amount of all those offenses reported was 1,532 in the rst six months of the year. That gure is down 12 percent from the end of last year, and is a recent low. There were 2,246 index crimes reported to the CCSO during the last six months of 2011. I think, too, its partially due to the economy getting better, said Partington. People are getting jobs and dont have to resort to crime. The Punta Gorda Police Department took reports of 163 index crimes in the beginning of this year, roughly the same amount as the previous two six-month periods.Trending elsewhereThrough June, overall crime decreased by 8.1 percent for all of Sarasota County including its cities, with decreases in all major crime categories except forcible rape, which increased from 40 in 2013 to 41 in 2014. According to FDLE data, larcenies and burglaries showed the greatest decrease through the rst half of 2014: burglaries fell from 1,116 to 1,004, while larcenies fell from 3,697 to 3,432. Aggravated assaults dropped from 421 to 383, while robberies fell from 139 to 119, data shows. In total, 5,621 crimes were reported in Sarasota County through June of this year. In North Port, 517 total crimes were reported through June, representing a one percent decrease. Through June 2013, 522 crimes were reported, data shows. According to data on the NPPD website, a three-year average in 2013 showed an overall decrease of 30 percent, with more than 30 percent of all cases cleared. 2014 data was not available on their website. Index crimes were up in DeSoto County, driven by more burglaries and thefts, FDLE data shows. Crime across the state dropped 2.4 percent, or 8,133 fewer crimes were reported in the rst six months this year, compared to the beginning of last year. Florida is on a path to a 44-year crime low, which is great news for Florida families, communities and visitors, Gov. Rick Scott said in a statement. It is thanks to the hard work of our brave law enforcement ofcials that Florida is reaching these historic crime lows.

By early 2015, however, it will be time to begin work on the Elkcam Waterway weir, forcing that portion of the north access road to be closed for at least four months. In the next few weeks, another work crew will arrive on site, further accelerating progress, Keyser said. The nal stage of the drainage project will take place in March on Elmira Boulevard, which will be closed for a few months to install new culverts at the Pompano Waterway canal crossing and under the roadway. To minimize disruption, the county continues to have electronic signs in place directing trafc and letting motor ists know future closures. In addition, a slight dip in U.S. 41, caused by the underground drilling, already has been repaired. But some businesses continue to be inconvenienced. Chrissy Murdock, owner of Charlies Pub near the Elkcam Waterway, said the construction has cut her business in half by limiting customer parking. Thats the whole issue, she said. Where do they park? Other merchants on the north access road, like Diane Casey, owner of Mariners Trading, said there has been little impact. Its dustier than usual, she said. But we have boaters and theyre used to rough waters. The drainage improvements along U.S. 41 are needed to accommodate the widening of Midway Boulevard to four lanes, slated to begin construction this summer, said Keyser, who also will oversee the roadway expansion. The $17.4 million highway project, between Sharpe Street and Kings Highway, will involve placing 38,000 feet of pipe along the 2.5-mile stretch for more drainage capacity and will take three years to complete, he said.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comPROJECTFROM PAGE 1 This section of the Elkcam Waterway is how the entire U.S. 41 microtunneling project will look when the work is done by June.PHOTOS BY GARY ROBERTSThe Fordham Waterway weir is nearly nished, allowing for the U.S. 41 access road, between Easy Street and Conway Boulevard, to reopen by February. Jette, packaged it all up and put in three of our bumper stickers asking him to place it on one of his vehicles. A week or so later, Santiago said he received a phone call from Cantasano thanking him for the package especially the cigars. The boys love the cigars, Joseph told me, he said. Then he sent me a photo of the back of his vehicle with our sticker on it. I put it in a place of honor in the lounge. Over the weekend, the Habana Cigar Lounge hosted a welcome home party for Cantasano. Surrounded by family and friends, the Punta Gorda resident shook hands as people thanked him for his service. Cantasano, a 2008 graduate of Charlotte High School, said he enlisted after graduation and was initially assigned to the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment, which guards the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. I served in a support capacity but I did presidential security and an honorary walk on Dec. 6, 2012, he said. My 31 months there was the best foundation I could have, and I re-enlisted for another four years. After advanced infantry training at Fort Jackson, S.C., and airborne school at Fort Benning, Ga., Cantasano arrived in Afghanistan on April 12, 2014. He was assigned to Camp Brown in Kandahar Province, located in the southern part of the country. I was with Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force, he said. I was a certied mail carrier and traveled to remote COPs, combat outposts and FOBs, forward operating bases. Cantasano said he also participated in the Village Stability Platforms, or VSP, part of the overall Village Stability Operations program initiated by Special Forces to combat the Taliban insurgency. The VSP is the embedded security forces that works through and with Afghan leaders in the rural areas to gain their trust, much like the Marine Combined Action Program did during the Vietnam War. Cantasanos father passed away several years ago, and the young soldier began calling DeGaeta a few months before his deploy ment to chat with him. He'd share his successes and thoughts, DeGaeta said. I know he'd rather have been talking with his father. But if he was using me for that, I was attered and happy to step in for his dad who couldn't be there. When Cantasano gave DeGaeta a shot glass from the Special Forces unit he had been assigned to prior to his deployment, DeGaeta said he told him he would save it for a shot or two of Irish whiskey upon his safe return. DeGaeta placed it on his book shelf, but decided to hedge his bet a little. My girlfriend, Kathy, has these small South American "worry gures" she keeps in a small round container near her makeup, DeGaeta said. She says it makes her think about the people in her family she loves every day so she can send them good vibes. So, I asked for one for Joe, and I stuck it in the shot glass that and a lot of prayers, and he's home. Cantasano said when he opened the package and saw the cigars, Oreo cookies, and the Tarpon ag, he was dumbfounded. Our squad sat up on the roof of our hootch, smoked a cigar, ate the Oreo cookies, and watched the fast movers (ghter aircraft) take off and land, he said. It was like a taste of home. Cantasanos mother, Maryalice, said she was extremely pleased to see all her sons together laughing and enjoying the evening at the welcome home gathering. Joe and his brothers are very close, she said. Michael, his younger brother, was born Nov. 26 and Joe was born Nov. 27. If one hurts, they all hurt. They walk as one. Joe walked into my house on Thanksgiving morning, she continued. I ran into his arms. My boy was nally home.VETFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTOS BY SUE PAQUINMichael, Joseph, Chuck and Tom Cantasano pose with their mother, Maryalice, at Josephs homecoming at the Habana Cigar Lounge over the weekend.

Unlike at other farms, here youll find dill and cilantro growing beneath tasty tomato plants. First, its a space saver. Second, the aromatic herbs help deter insects and other pests. It looks more like a giant garden, and theres a lot of diversity, Eva said. The Wordens may be providing healthy, organic foods to our community, but theyre also providing jobs and educating the community. There are several workshops offered at Worden Farm that promote healthy lifestyles. The following are workshops currently planned for this winter: What Do I Do With All These Veggies?

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, December 3, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS With hepatitis C, cir rhosis of the liver, asthma, gall bladder disease, hypertension, cellulitis and nine other ailments, Seran Trujillo is in bad shape. The 55-year-olds wife, Denise, believes hes going to die if he doesnt get medication on a regular basis. But, she says no one will listen to her pleas for help because her husband is incarcerated in Charlotte County Jail. Trujillo, of Englewood, pleaded no-contest for a third DUI offense and was sentenced in August to serve jail time until April. However, his wife and his public defender are convinced he wont make it out of jail because they claim his medical needs arent being met. Hes terminal, Denise said. He needs special medication Xifaxan to help with the hepatitis C when his ammonia levels go up and he hasnt been given the pills. I believe its because Xifaxan is expensive and they dont want to provide them to him. On Sept. 22, Trujillos public defender, John Mahoney, was in court ar guing a motion to mitigate the jail sentence. Mahoney argued that Trujillo is terminally ill as evidenced by testimony by Port Charlotte Dr. Mark Asperilla, who saw him in July. Mr. Trujillo is not receiving the appropriate medication while in custody, Mahoney wrote in the motion. Mr. Trujillo is not receiving the level of medical care that his condition requires. Mr. Trujillos stomach is distended and severely bloated. Mr. Trujillos overall health is failing. Defense believes that Mr. Trujillos life is in serious jeopardy if the sentence remains unchanged. Despite Mahoneys plea, a letter from Dr. Sovi Joseph and Asperillas testimony at the earlier sentencing hear ing, 20th Judicial Circuit Judge Peter Bell denied the motion. On Nov. 16, Asperilla also wrote a letter to the judge again explaining, further delay in treatment would mean end of life for Trujillo. He recommended in jail or treatment as an outpatient in his ofce. Asperilla is not contracted to go to the Charlotte County Jail to treat inmates and could not be reached for comment. Before my husband went before the judge, the jail did tests on him and gave him medication so it would look like he was stable, she said. Prior to that, he wasnt getting the treatment he needed. Thats why Mark led the motion in the rst place. What they dont understand is my husband had Medicaid, which was dropped once he went to jail. If his sentence was modied and he could serve his time in a treatment facility, I could get him into Vine Hospital in Ocala, she said. They would treat him for the hep. C and alcoholism. They could help save his life and it would be paid for by Medicaid. Instead Im being told that its too expensive it would cost more than $125,000 to treat my husband with Xifaxan, so they arent doing it.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Denise says Trujillo is sleeping on a mattress on the jail oor. With all of the medical conditions my husband has, is it really humane to have him sleeping on the oor? she asked. Im not condoning what he did. Im just saying he needs medical treatment that is being ignored.County disputes wifes claimsCharlotte County Jail ofcials disagree with Denises account of Trujillos medical treatment. I have checked with our detention commanders and Mr. Trujillos medical needs are being met, said Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce spokeswoman Debbie Bowe. The cost of medication is not an issue. Bowe did not say if Trujillo was receiving the medication recommended by the doctor to treat chronic hepatitis C. Trujillos records show that his chronic condition could be controlled through medication. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, hepatitis C virus is a contagious liver infection that can cause inammation in the liver. Chronic hepatitis C occurs when the virus stays in the body untreated, causing liver damage or liver cancer over time. Trujillo wrote a let ter to the Florida Bar Association asking for help. Denise is also trying to contact the governor and other legislators to get the medication she says her husband needs to stay alive. Email: eallen@sun-herald.com INMATEFROM PAGE 8 Forty years after Marine Cpl. Randy Smith of Venice lowered the ag for the last time at the American embassy in Saigon on April 29, 1975, he returned to the now-renamed Ho Chi Minh City to attend a Marine Corps Birthday Ball held in the South Vietnamese capital city. When he departed the countrys capital as a teenage Marine half a lifetime ago, Saigon and the whole country were in ruins from decades of war. He returned for the Nov. 10 ball to nd Ho Chi Minh City a bustling metropolis of 7 million people with skyscrapers, cars everywhere and smiles from residents toward visiting Americans. I bet Ho Chi Minh is rolling over in his grave because (it) is a capitalist city, Smith said with a smile. The people are very friendly to Americans. They like Americans because we bring tourist dollars into the country. After a 30-plus-hour ight from Tampa, he and a Marine Corps buddy, Ken Crouse, who was the speaker at the embassy ball, completed their journey. Crouse was also there to further the development of a religious effort by a group of American churches to rescue young girls from slavery in Cambodia. Crouse has own to Southeast Asia on several previous occasions to help the ministry with its rescued girls program. Four decades ago, when Crouse arrived in Saigon, he only served there a few weeks when South Vietnam fell to the North. The two old Marines took a walk around Ho Chi Minh City their rst day in-country, but nothing looked the same as it had when they were there as young men. We went to the Ben Tan Market. Its kinda like an American mall, except they have this section where butchers are chopping up raw meat out in the open. Blood is running off the meat onto the oor. Its pretty amazing, Smith said. I had an audience with Rena Bitter, the counsel general, that afternoon. She is the senior American foreign service ofcer in (Ho Chi Minh City). The most emotional part of the trip for me is when Staff Sgt. David Childers, head of the Marine security detail at the consulate, allowed me to take down the American ag. The big ag pole at the consulate is the only thing left of the building that was there 40 years ago when I served there. I went out with a threeman detail and lowered the ag and raised a new one. We folded the ag we had just taken down into a triangle and they presented it to me. Im going to put that ag in a special display box and give it to my grandchildren. Friday, the next day, we went to a tourist area called Dung Tao. Its a beach resort about an hour and a half south of (Ho Chi Minh City), along the South China Sea. Strange thing about the place, there is a statue of Jesus on a hill with outstretched arms like in Rio. Vietnam is a Communist country and they dont like Christians. I have no idea why the statue is there, Smith said. The next day, Saturday, we came back to (Ho Chi Minh City) and moved to the Sheraton Hotel where the Marine Corps Ball was going to be held. It was during the ball I got to meet Pete Peterson, the former American ambassador. I spent quite a lot of time talking to him. Before he was the ambassador, he was an Air Force pilot who was shot down over North Vietnam in 1966. He spent seven years in the Hanoi Hilton, (the infamous POW camp in North Vietnam). Much of that time he was locked up with Senator John McCain, who was a Navy pilot who got shot down too. Pete told me, There are a number of ex-POWs who hold a grudge against North Vietnam, but I dont. The past is the past and I dont want to be remembered as a POW survivor. He wants to be remembered as a successful businessman who became the American ambassador to Vietnam after the war. Hes a great guy and a good man, Smith added. I think he is right on target with his thoughts about Vietnam. The ball was a grandiose affair and I was the only person attending who was at the last Marine Corps Ball in 1974, before the fall of Saigon, and this one. But I wasnt the oldest Marine there this time. There was one guy who was ... 74 at this ball. Smith and Crouse drove to Siem Reap, Cambodia, that Sunday to meet with a husband and wife team of missionaries who live in that primitive region. Their main effort is working with teenage girls theyve helped rescue from slavery in Cambodia. The missionaries train them to be self-sufcient so they can support themselves when they graduate from training. The problems these two missionaries face every day working with these girls the people back in the U.S. wouldnt understand, Randy observed. Fighting child trafcking is a horrible problem in Southeast Asia. Back home again and considering his weeklong visit to the area, Smith said, I wanted to go back over there to see how the Vietnamese people were doing after all these years. Its amazing what the people over there have overcome. Instead of being lled with hate and bitterness, theyre trying to help their country. Hes already planning another trip. On April 29-30 Ill be at the American Consulate for the 40th anniversary celebration of the fall of Saigon, Smith said. There will be 17 other Marines coming over with me for that event. Well be there to put a plaque on the wall to honor Darwin Judge and Charles McMahon, the last two Marines killed in the Vietnam War. Well put the plaque up so they will never be forgotten for the ultimate sacrice they made for their country.

Our Town Page 10 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, December 3, 2014 Everyone pays under ObamacareEditor: Reading letters from those disappointed with the cost of their insurance under Obamacare has caused me to have a eureka moment. To relate just one such letter is enough to make my point. The letter stated the premium had risen from $410 a month to $800 and the deductible had also nearly doubled. It went on to express dismay with coverage that was unnecessary. The letter writer now had eye care coverage for her children who were grown and gone from her household with their own insurance coverage and she was covered for birth control and abortion procedures even though she was clearly past any need for such coverage. Try looking at the same information from my new point of view. Just see her policy as having in it coverage that she would never use and suddenly its clear that Obamacare doesnt need the individual mandate. Most insurance needs a certain amount of nonusers to pay for the extra use of other policyholders. This is what the individual mandate was designed to do. But under Obamacare everyone is a nonuser of some portion of a policy that covers everything: a more comprehensive policy covering everything for everybody. All that does is affect your pay ment. Theres no need for an individual mandate except as a diversion. For Obamacare to work it must be the only choice. Thats ingenious. Youd have to be a graduate of MIT to concoct such a scheme. Under Obamacare, everyone pays.Norman Farrell Rotonda WestBrown failed by family, cultureEditor: The AP headline story on Friday Question lingers: Were his hands up? never mentions forensic evidence, which you can read online. They prove, by the angle of the bullet holes, that his hands were not raised. The hands-up claims, primarily given by Browns accomplice in the strong-arm robbery of the convenience store minutes earlier, were refuted by other black witnesses reliable witnesses. But then, stoking the res of racism makes great headlines. Per autopsy reports, Michael Brown was 6 feet 5 inches, weighed 285 pounds. Thats some teenager or child as his mother calls him. At 18 he was old enough and mature enough to vote and to join the Marines. Michael Brown died because of his own choices: to be a criminal, to punch a police ofcer sitting in his patrol car, and then to reach into the patrol car and attempt to wrestle away the ofcers weapon. At that point, its obvious the only thing on his mind was to kill the cop. Sounds like the lyrics of the rap music genre, doesnt it? Browns blood and DNA were found on the outside and inside of the drivers door, on the ofcer, and on his gun. Michael Brown grew up a disadvantaged youth, disadvantaged by not having a father who loved him enough to marry his mother and to be in the home. There will never be enough government money and intervention to overcome that great failing of our culture.Je Crandall EnglewoodMan located, kindness prevailsEditor: The other day a lady knocked on our door trying to locate a man known to her only by his rst name. The man frequented the fast food restaurant she works for every day and because he hadnt shown up for several days, she wanted to check on him and make sure he was OK. We did our best to try and nd out who he might be and where he might live, but knew of no one in our neighborhood by that name. The lady called us the next day and advised that she and another employee of this restaurant nally located him and went to his home. His elderly wife was in the house alone because the man was in the hospital. The girls did a couple of errands for the wife and showed her how to turn her heat on (her husband had always done so and she didnt know how to do it). Then they visited the gentleman in the hospital, cheered him up and wished him well. How totally refreshing to know of good people like Pati and her friend who would go out of their way to make sure a customer was OK. Its nice to know that kindness prevails.Carol Quinn Rotonda WestWhen the militants of Islamic State swept across Iraq last June, they numbered no more than 12,000 and they faced a U.S.trained, U.S.-equipped Iraqi army that boasted some 200,000 troops. And yet it was the Iraqi army that collapsed. What happened? It was more than simply incompetence among Iraqi generals and ethnic tensions among the ranks. The hidden factor that gave Islamic State its victory was Iraqs rampant corruption. The Baghdad governments army had 200,000 troops on paper, but many were ghost soldiers, ctional troops whose wages went into their ofcers pockets. The unfortunate troops who showed up often lacked equipment and ammunition because their ofcers had sold it on the black market. I told the Americans, dont give any weapons through the army not even one piece because corruption is every where, and you will not see any of it, Col. Shaaban al-Obeidi of Iraqs internal security forces told The New York Times this month. Our people will steal it. We often look at corruption as a secondary issue in international affairs:, as a moral problem that allows Third World governments to steal from their people and get in the way of equitable economic development. But the lesson of the collapse of the Iraqi army, an army built with $25 billion in U.S. aid, is this: Corruption isnt only a moral issue; its a national security issue, too. Thats the message of Sarah Chayes, a former reporter for National Public Radio, who spent 10 years working on economic development projects in Afghanistan only to nd that corruption was getting in the way of nearly everything she did. Chayes, whose writing frequently appears on these pages, has written a new book, Thieves of State, that makes a persuasive case that corruption harms U.S. national security interests in at least two ways: It makes it easier for insurgent movements to win support among aggrieved citizens. And it makes U.S.friendly governments incapable of defending themselves against insurgents, criminal cartels and even foreign invaders. In Afghanistan, for example, public opinion polls over the last decade have found that relatively few Afghans support the Taliban and yet the insurgency has been able not only to keep ghting, but also to attract new recruits. How? At one point, the U.S. military command in Kabul surveyed Taliban prisoners about why they had joined the insurgency. At the top of the list of reasons cited by prisoners for joining the Taliban was not ethnic bias, or disrespect of Islam, or concern that U.S. forces might stay in their country, Chayes reports. At the top of the list was the perception that the Afghan government was irrevocably corrupt. Ordinary Afghans didnt like the idea of Taliban rule, but at least the insurgents didnt steal from them the way the government did. Chayes tells the story of a former policeman who, after being forced to pay too many bribes, announced that the next time he saw a police vehicle approach a Taliban bomb, I will not warn them. Afghan government corruption was manufacturing Taliban, Chayes concludes. And its not only the Taliban. Osama bin Laden listed cor ruption of Arab regimes from Saudi Arabia to Egypt as high on the list of grievances al-Qaeda intended to redress. In Syria and Iraq, Islamic State says it wants to stamp out corruption, too. Theres an odd, distant echo of the Cold War here: In China, Vietnam and Cuba, communist revolutionaries often won support from non-communists by promising honest government in place of corrupt autocracies. The United States found itself in the uncomfortable position of supporting regimes it knew to be corrupt, because it feared the alternative. Outside the Muslim world, corruption creates another kind of national security problem. Ukraine was incapable of resisting Russias stealth invasion of Crimea this year in part because corruption had deprived its army of equipment and training. Closer to home, narcotics trafckers have corrupted so many of Mexicos local police forces that President Enrique Pea Nieto announced last week that he will attempt to put all police under federal control. Even worse, U.S. aid has sometimes made the problem worse. In Afghanistan, at one point, the economy could efciently absorb an estimated 44 percent of the international aid that was ooding in; much of the rest got siphoned off into corruption. The unintended side effect was the creation of a government-industrial complex that relied on graft. In the end, Chayes concludes, the problem isnt Afghan government incompetence, but rather that the government has made siphoning riches its top priority, and it is doing that with admirable efciency. There are no easy xes for a problem as tangled as that, but Chayes offers a list of initial steps that could help, including banning corrupt chiefs of state from ofcial visits to the United States, keeping corrupt leaders off the CIA payroll and delivering U.S. aid with strings that make corruption difcult. But the rst step is to think about corruption as a higher priority. Its not only immoral, un just and economically inefcient.

HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOREmail letters to letters@sun-herald.comChairman Derek Dunn-Rankin Publisher David Dunn-Rankin Executive Editor Chris Porter Editorial page editor Brian Gleason Editorial writer Stephen Baumann Editor John Hackworth V IEWPOINT OUR VIEW Eyeing growth, Cultural Center targets youthOUR POSITION: Cultural Center widens its aim, while serving its base.If youre on Amanda Segurs email distribution list, you know the Cultural Center of Charlotte County is a beehive of activity. The centers marketing and development manager highlights happenings on a daily basis, including concerts, dinners, luncheons, plays, networking events, trivia contests and lifelong learning programs. If youre looking for something to do, or have company coming, theres a good chance youll nd something to your liking. Segurs email blasts also convey the Cultural Centers push into programming for a younger crowd, an effort outlined by new Executive Director Stephen Carter in Mondays story by Sun Staff Writer Gary Roberts. Among the upcoming offerings is the Charlotte County Concert Bands performance of its Christmas is for Kidsconcert set for Dec. 21. Segur herself will be performing at the center Dec. 19, with her show Joyful Noise: A Holiday Concert, accompanied by pianist Ken Crisp and drummer Bob Ryan. The two shows are just a sample of the almost daily lineup of upcoming Christmas-themed entertainment, including concerts by the Charlotte County Jazz Society (Dec. 8), Bion Cantorum (Dec. 12 and 14), and Trina & Ian & Wolfhounds A Celtic Christmas performance (Dec. 13). In addition to childrens programming, the targeting adjustment takes aim at a demographic the Cultural Centers traditionally senior-focused lineup has missed before. Thursdays performance by Rick Larrimores Rod Stewart A Tribute is the latest in a series of acts covering songs from bands such as Bon Jovi and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. While fans of bands that were in their heyday in the 1970s and 1980s may be graying themselves, the music has the staying power to attract a preretirement set. To reach an even younger audience, maybe Segur needs to nd tribute acts performing Taylor Swift, Justin Beiber or Katy Perry tunes. Or perhaps a battle of local bands could bring in a Twentysomething crowd to whom the Cultural Center is an alien world. A youth room catering to the teen crowd might provide something to do for a demographic always saying there is nothing to do here. Is there space for an after-school program that would introduce the center to an even younger audience? Carters vision of creating a multigenerational gathering place wont leave its core audience behind, as shown by Monday nights A Tribute to Glenn Miller performance by Charlotte County Big Band. The Ingroov Big Band will offer a similar mix of swing and big band songs at its Thursday afternoon concert. For those not familiar with the Cultural Center, a 50-year-old institution known as the place that friendship built, its far more than a concert hall or theater. A branch of the Charlotte County library system lets members and visitors exercise their minds, while the Fitness Salon focuses on their bodies. There are frequent dances, daily card and bingo games, and a tea room. The Learning Place offers classes in the arts, computers, crafts, dance, humanities, language and music. The Midtown Deli serves breakfast six days a week and lunch every day. For budget-minded shoppers, Cultural Center stores boast racks and shelves full of clothing, housewares, gifts, crafts, books and more. While the Cultural Center is clearly in a welcome transitional phase, with new programming and a fresh focus on growth, it remains a powerful force for communitybuilding, personal growth, cultural enlightenment and, still, after all these years, friendship. 211.1 12, 0 "W O W` y{" nt.,y o"AND IF ANYT1ING 60S WRONG VI(e'1-1, &AW TNe DYNAMI1 "i]L

The Sun /Wednesday, December 3, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINT Who is Homeless, an article by the National Coalition for the Homeless has stated that On any given night, 271,000 veterans are homeless. This gure comprises 14 percent of the overall homeless population in America. The homelessness of veterans throughout the United States has been both a problem and an embarrassment for decades. But Charlotte County veteran services and its community partners began a major push 10 years ago by making a pledge to help end chronic veteran homelessness in Charlotte County. We need to do better for our nations warriors and the Charlotte County community has taken this issue up with full force. In October of 2005, the Charlotte County community held its rst-ever Homeless Veteran Stand-Down and on Nov. 1, 2014, they held their 10th, and hopefully last, stand-down. A stand-down provides homeless veterans immediate relief from the trauma and isolation of homelessness and creates an environment where basic necessities are provided and participants can come together in a safe and relaxed atmosphere. Over the 10 year period, through the Department of Veterans Affairs, Charlotte County government, grants and a lot of sweat, many programs have become available to assist this population. The Volunteers of America in Punta Gorda (now known as the Punta Gorda Veterans Village) is a 24-bed facility that helps homeless veterans transition back into the community. It is a two-year program that has been very productive and has helped many veterans transition to a positive future of independence and determination. Charlotte County, through the VA, has received 40 HUD/ VASH vouchers. The HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program combines Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance for homeless veterans and their families with case management and clinical services provided by the VA. Stillwater Veterans House, a Charlotte County property, was our most recent veterans residence to open and houses up to 18 homeless veterans. Under the management of CASL/ Renaissance Manor, CASL now offers permanent supported housing for both male and female veterans at the Stillwater property. In 2013, the Jewish Family and Children Services of the Suncoast, Inc. opened a new Charlotte County ofce located at 514 Grace Street in Punta Gorda. As an expansion of JFCS Operational Military Assistance Program, the Charlotte County ofce now serves veteran families who are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless with the use of the supportive services for Veteran Families Program Federal Grant of $1.4 million dollars. The Florence Ryan Fund, through the Charlotte County Veterans Council, has provided $30,000 in nancial aid to needy veterans for rent, electricity and water since 2010. Sadly, this account is almost depleted. We also cannot forget the tiresome daily work of the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition that caters to all categories of the needy, veterans included. In addition to all these services and help that is being provided, our Community partners have raised money and funded all 10 standdowns (approx. $30,000) and assisted throughout the year with support to needy veterans, buying groceries, paying bills and sometimes just being companions to a veteran who is alone. It is an outstanding community that takes Abraham Lincolns phrase in his second inaugural address to heart: to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan to heart. Years ago, at the third Homeless Veterans Stand-Down, we had more than 100 attend (our highest number). This year, at the 10th one, we had three chronic homeless veterans and two near-homeless veterans. The Charlotte County community should be commended for this progress toward ending military veteran homelessness. The Homeless Veterans StandDown committee is now discussing if next year there will be a Homeless Veterans Stand-Down since we have pretty much met our goals. The contribution of federal and local governments, veteran organizations and the private sector partners getting together and achieving these results should show that anything is possible. David W.

The Childrens Burn Foundation of Florida Inc., which sponsors this annual event, is committed to enhancing the lives of young burn survivors. Their goal is to offer an opportunity for these children to see and interact with other burn survivors, build friendships and know that they are not alone. The burn camp also offers the burn survivors and their families the chance to apply for nancial and medical assistance that otherwise may not be available to them. Raymond and McCausland volunteered their time to mentor one child burn survivor each over the four-day camp. The pair, along with their burn buddies, participated in arts and crafts, movie night in a swimming pool, an 80-yard slip-n-slide, and a two-story 30-foot-high ropes course just to list a few. Kaitlyn has attended burn camp two years in a row while Kyle enjoyed his rst burn camp event this year. Big thanks to both Kaitlyn and Kyle for representing Punta Gorda at this years burn camp.

Our Town Page 12 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, December 3, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS MURDOCK A homeless man outside a convenience store nearly resorted to violence because a customer was listening to black music too loud, according to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce. Ross Kennedy Heller, 50, was in front of the Circle K on 1783 Tamiami Trail around 7 p.m. Monday when a man drove up listening to some music in his vehicle. The driver was just running into the store to grab a drink, so he left the tunes on. But when he returned to his vehicle, he was confronted by a cursing Heller, who told him the music was too loud and, Youre not black, why are you playing that kind of music, the sheriffs report shows. Heller is white. The victim told authorities Heller pulled out a pocketknife, with the blade exposed, and said to meet him behind the Circle K. But then the homeless man rode off on a bicycle. A Circle K employee corroborated the victims story. Deputies caught up with Heller sitting on a bench outside Save-A-Lot, a few parking lots over. The suspect was questioned and arrested after a knife allegedly was found attached to his shorts.

Our Town Page 14 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, December 3, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Many of us realize traditions help strengthen a family. Especially at holiday time, we rely on our traditions to add color and meaning to our celebrations. Communities have traditions, too, and its often those traditions that add to the appeal of living there. Realizing the impor tance of tradition, Rotonda West volunteers work all year to ensure the community will have its own traditions. Two favorite traditions with many residents are Rotondas very own Christmas parade and the Oakland Hills Marina and Gazebo lighting ceremony and boat parade. For a small community, relatively speaking, Rotonda West has a big way of ushering in the Christmas season. The Christmas parade gets bigger every year, thanks to the hard work of a handful of committee members headed by Earl Haas. This year, the marina lighting ceremony takes on even more signicance because it marks the 25th year of that Christmas tradition. The anniversary probably would have passed without notice, but with his appreciation of those who work to make Rotonda West better, Don Mahon wouldnt let that happen. As a tireless Rotonda West volunteer, one of the many things Don does is to highlight special happenings in his community. A major contributor to West Ways, the associations newsletter, Don doesnt let an event go by without letting people know the inside story. The gazebo that graces the Oakland Hills Marina makes a pretty picture all year long. But during the Christmas season when it shines with thousands of lights, the island goes from pretty to spectacular. But nothing just appears on its own. Someone has to come up with an idea then work to bring it to fruition. In doing research about the gazebo, Don learned it was Rotonda residents Earl and Alyn Simpson who sparked the idea of lighting the gazebo at Christmas time and raised the money to buy 100 sets of lights. For 10 years, Earl and Alyn personally decorated the gazebo, bridge and Christmas tree that topped the structure, followed by another 10 years of that volunteer work by Harry Senger. Over the years the lighting of the gazebo evolved into a community tradition with a special ceremony and social gathering. For the past ve years, dedicated volunteer Haas has taken over the lighting ceremony. This year, Haas and David Kelly coordinated the committee of volunteers that spiffed up Rotonda West for the holidays by decorating the ve bridge entrances as well as the memorial parks. Saturday was time for the big light show, and a record crowd gathered at the Oakland Hills Marina. Its gratifying to see so many people here, said Don Mahon. This event grows bigger ever year. It wasnt just Rotonda West and Englewood residents who came. Brenda Fredriksen of Fort Myers said three generations of her family were there after her daughter saw it mentioned on the Internet. Its a great way to start the holidays, said Grace Summers, who added that shes happy to be a Rotonda snowbird instead of a frozen Michigan snowman. Indeed, the weather was perfect and the crowd enthusiastic for the lighted boat parade that earned oohs and aahs from the appreciative crowd. When Mr. and Mrs. Claus arrived on a boat, the night was complete for dozens of kids who ocked to talk to Santa. Rotonda West Womans Club added to the nights pleasures with homemade goodies while The Hills restaurant supplied hot chocolate and beverages. If you missed the lighting ceremony, you can still enjoy the lighted marina island and gazebo every night until the New Year. Day or night, its a pretty sight.

See Sports page 1.10 things to knowWASHINGTON Suspected Nazi war criminals would be blocked from receiving Social Security benets under a bill unanimously approved Tuesday by the House. The measure would shut a loophole that allowed suspected Nazis to be paid millions of dollars in benets. Under the bill, benets would be terminated for Nazi suspects who have lost their American citizenship, a step called denaturalization. U.S. law currently mandates a higher threshold a nal order of deportation before Social Security benets can be stopped. The legislation was introduced after an Associated Press investigation published in October revealed that Social Security benets have been paid to dozens of former Nazis after they were forced out of the United States. APs investigation found that the Justice Department used a legal loophole to persuade Nazi suspects to leave the U.S. in exchange for Social Security benets. If they agreed to go voluntarily, or simply ed the country before being deported, they could keep their benets. The Justice Department denied using Social Security payments as a way to expel former Nazis. Rep. Leonard Lance, R-N.J., said the House action would correct an injustice of two generations and right a terrible wrong in the name of the lives that were lost as a result of the Holocaust.

The yearlong course is one of a growing number of programs that are incorporating mindfulness, yoga and meditation into school curriculums to bring socio-emotional benets to students. See the story on page 2.Journey toward peaceHappy hour started way earlier than we thought. Roughly 10 million years ago long before humans began to store food harvested by agriculture, and long, long before they intentionally fermented food and made a delightfully relaxing ritual of consuming the result a new study nds that the guts of our primate ancestors evolved the ability to metabolize alcohol. The latest research suggests that humankind has had far more evolutionary time to adapt itself to the presence of alcohol than has been previously thought. Earlier efforts to date mankinds practice of consuming alcohol had suggested that our relationship to fermented fruit began a mere 9,000 years ago. That is when humans were thought to have developed the technological wherewithal to jump-start the rotting process, separate the extraneous food bulk, and harvest the liquid inebriate known by the scientic name of ethanol. If humankinds relationship with drink were truly that young, it would stand to reason that many among us might not yet have acquired the evolutionary means to tolerate alcohol. And that would likely color our understanding of a disease such as alcoholism in which an environmental factor that is benign or even salutary to most confers toxic effects on certain individuals. Alcoholics might be seen merely as evolutionary late bloomers, whose genetic ability to metabolize ethanol has not yet caught up with its ubiquitous availability. If primates have been enjoying the effects of fermentation for 10 million years, by contrast, that would suggest that humans and even chimpanzees and gorillas before them have by now pretty fully evolved to consume alcohol. By that reading, any genetic predisposition to alcoholism might be viewed as the result of a more recent, or more random, genetic mutation. To date our relationship to drink, a team led by biologist Matthew Carrigan of Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Fla., reached back into humans ancestral lineage to detect where the ability to produce a gut Study: Primates adapted to alcoholBy MELISSA HEALYLOS ANGELES TIMES WRITER ALCOHOL | 4TALLAHASSEE A tourist who felt threatened by another driver and aimed his gun at the man shouldnt have to prove his actions were protected under Floridas stand your ground law, his attorney argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday, adding that it should be up to prosecutors to prove the opposite. Jared Bretherick had the right to defend his family and shouldnt have been charged because of the state law that says people can use force if they are in danger, said his attorney, Eric Friday. The 25-year-old Indiana man was given a hearing in which he requested immunity from an assault charge under the stand your ground law, but a lower court said no. Now Friday is arguing that Bretherick shouldnt have even been charged until prosecutors rst proved he wasnt defending himself and the burden shouldnt have been placed on Bretherick to prove he was. Some of the justices seemed skeptical of the argument. Justice Barbara Pariente said the 2005 legislation never spelled out a process for pretrial hearings to claim immunity from charges in stand your ground cases. It was the court that created the pretrial hearing process in 2010 in response to another stand your ground case. Im trying to see, other than sort of pulling it out of the stratosphere, where we come up with that additional burden, she said. Friday said the Legislature passed stand your ground to give citizens more protection in self-defense cases. So why then has this court created a burden that the Legislature never authorized and put the burden on the citizen? Friday asked.Stand your ground case before Florida high courtBy BRENDAN FARRINGTONASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERGROUND | 4 BEIRUT Lebanese authorities detained a woman and young boy believed to be the wife and son of the reclusive Islamic State group leader, and were questioning the woman and conducting DNA tests on the child, senior Lebanese ofcials said Tuesday. If their identities are conrmed, Lebanon may use the pair as bargaining chips to win the release of soldiers and police taken hostage by the extremists in cross-border attacks earlier this year. The woman, who was identied as an Iraqi, and the child were taken into custody about 10 days ago while carrying fake ID cards, the ofcials said. Very little is known about al-Baghdadis personal life, including how many wives and children he has. Conservative interpretations of Islam allow men to marry up to four wives. The Islamic State group did not immediately comment on the detentions, but the factions supporters on Twitter and militant websites cast doubt on the reports. Adding to the confusion, the Lebanese army did not release an ofcial statement regarding the pair.

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, December 3, 2014 NATIONAL NEWS PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) As the morning school bell rings and students rush through crowded corridors, teenagers in one Portland classroom settle onto mats and meditation pillows. They fall silent after the teacher taps a Tibetan singing bowl. Allow yourself to settle into the experience of being here, in this moment, teacher Caverly Morgan tells two dozen students at Wilson High School. The students are enrolled in a for-credit, year-long mindfulness class meant to ease youth anxiety and depression and to prevent violence. For 90 minutes, three days a week, they practice a mix of yoga, sitting and walking meditation, visualization techniques, deep breathing, journaling and non-judgmental listening. The idea behind mindfulness is that focusing on the present moment helps a person deal better with stress, difcult emotions and negative thoughts. Mindfulness, yoga and meditation have gained popularity among Americans in recent decades, buoyed by studies showing their benets to emotional, mental and physical health. The centuries-old practices have roots in Buddhism and Hinduism, but Western culture has secularized them to focus on physical postures, breathing and relaxation techniques. Such practices are now offered by corporations like Google, Target and General Mills to their employees. Prison inmates, hospital patients and the U.S. Marines are using them to combat stress and illness, increase focus and well-being. And now schools all over the country are introducing the practices. Some people have greeted the move with less than enthusiasm. Last year, an elementary school in Ohio ended its mindfulness program after parents complained it was too closely linked to Eastern religion and a conservative Christian law rm unsuccessfully sued on behalf of a couple in Encinitas, Calif., arguing their school districts yoga classes indoctrinate children. But many school districts are reporting success. In Richmond, Calif., where a teacher started a mindfulness program called the Mindful Life Project, schools have reported drops in detentions and referrals among low-income, at-risk youth. The school district in South Burlington, Vt., implemented a successful mindfulness course as part of a health and wellness program, and now administrators there have written a manual on incorporating mindfulness into K-12 curriculums.Mindfulness classes help teens cope | NATIONCoreLogic: US home prices acceleratedWASHINGTON (AP) U.S. home prices rose at a faster year-over-year pace in October than in September, snapping a seven-month slowdown. Real estate data provider CoreLogic said Tuesday that prices increased 6.1 percent in October compared with 12 months earlier. That was up from Septembers year-over-year increase of 5.6 percent. Still, home values are rising more slowly than they were earlier this year, when 12-month gains were averaging nearly double their current pace. The price momentum began to tail off in the middle of the year as home values in more cities and states neared the record highs last seen shortly before the Great Recession began in late 2007. Higher prices have reduced affordability, especially because the incomes of many would-be buyers have yet to match their pre-recession levels. Lending standards also remain comparably tight.Woman sues Bill Cosby, claiming underage abuseLOS ANGELES (AP) Bill Cosby was sued Tuesday by a Southern California woman who claims the comedian molested her in a bedroom of the Playboy Mansion around 1974 when she was 15 years old. Judy Huths sexual battery lawsuit does not specify how much she is seeking from Cosby, who has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct in recent weeks. Huths lawsuit led in Los Angeles Superior Court, however, is the rst time that a woman has claimed she was underage when she was abused, and it is the rst lawsuit Cosby has faced claiming sexual abuse since 2005. Huth claims she suffered severe emotional distress and that she discovered its impact on her within the past three years, which allows her to file the lawsuit under California law.US military deaths in Afghanistan at 2,210(AP) As of Tuesday, at least 2,210 members of the U.S. military had died in Afghanistan as a result of the U.S.-led invasion in late 2001, according to an Associated Press count. The AP count is three less than the Defense Departments tally, last updated Tuesday at 10 a.m. EST. At least 1,830 military service members have died in Afghanistan as a result of hostile action, according to the militarys numbers. Outside of Afghanistan, the department reports at least 136 more members of the U.S. military died in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.Rain brings hopes, fears to CaliforniaLOS ANGELES (AP) A Pacic storm moved into drought-stricken California on Tuesday, bringing much-needed moisture but fears of mudows on wildre-scarred hillsides. Heavy rain began falling overnight in Northern California, while showers in the southern part of the state started after dawn. The strongest downpours were expected later in the day. Storm watches were issued for a large swath of the Sierra Nevada, where a huge amount of the states water supply is normally stored as snowpack. Signicant accumulations were predicted but not enough to be a drought buster. Any delight over the prospect of benecial precipitation was tempered by concerns about the threat of debris ows from the many areas of California where wildres have burned away vegeta tion that would keep soil stable.Chicago minimum wage raisedCHICAGO (AP) Chicagos minimum wage workers will earn $13 an hour by 2019 under a plan the City Council approved overwhelmingly on Tuesday. The move raises Illinois $8.25 rate which is $1 higher than the federal rate incrementally. Itll get bumped to $10 next year. City ofcials estimate roughly 400,000 Chicago workers will benet from the change, which Mayor Rahm Emanuel hopes will jolt state lawmakers into action. Legislators are considering a statewide hike to $11 by 2017. Opponents say an increase could lead to job losses. Two of the ve aldermen who voted against the measure are business owners who fear establishments will leave Chicago.Cyber Monday sales jump 17 percent to over NEW YORK (AP) Online shoppers set a set a single-day spending record on Cyber Monday, despite deals being stretched out this holiday season. Online sales Monday jumped 17 percent from last year, totaling nearly $2.04 billion, research rm comScore Inc. said Tuesday. That represents the heaviest online spending day in history and the rst to surpass $2 billion in sales, said the rm, which tracks online sales. Retailers from Target to Amazon have been offering online deals since the beginning of November, and are promising cyber deals all week. Some anticipated the extended period would hurt Cyber Monday sales. And the lackluster start to the holiday shopping season in brick-and-mor tar stores also lowered expectations. 50%OFF FAMOUS AMERICAN DESIGNERSReg. $95-$650. Sale 47.50$325.

The Sun /Wednesday, December 3, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 WORLD NEWS | WORLDMilitants kill 36 non-Muslims in northern KenyaNAIROBI, Kenya (AP) The heavily armed Somali men roused the sleeping quarry workers in the dead of night. As in previous such attacks, the gunmen singled out the non-Muslims by asking them to recite the Islamic creed. Then they killed 36 of them most with a gunshot to the back of the head, according to a survivor who hid nearby during the slaughter. The Islamic militant group al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the methodical massacre in northern Kenya early Tuesday 10 days after a similar attack on a bus that killed 28 and it prompted President Uhuru Kenyatta to shake up his national security team amid public outrage over the continuing violence.Israeli government crumbles; new election plannedJERUSALEM (AP) Israels divided government fell apart Tuesday as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu red two rebellious Cabinet ministers and called for a new election more than two years ahead of schedule. Netanyahus announcement plunges the country into a bitter campaign that seemed unlikely just a few days earlier. The election, expected to be held early next year, would come at a time of growing violence between Palestinians and Jews and deepening despair over the prospects for peace. In a nationally televised address, Netanyahu said he had ordered the dismissals of Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni.Saxophone player Bobby Keys diesNASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Bobby Keys, a saxophonist and life-long rock n roller who played on recordings by Buddy Holly and John Lennon and performed one of the all-time blowout solos on the Rolling Stones Brown Sugar, has died at his home in Franklin, Tenn. He was 70 years old. Michael Webb, who played keyboard with Keys, said Keys died on Tuesday after a lengthy illness. Keys had been out on tour with the Stones earlier this year before his health prevented him from performing. KEYSUkraine parliament approves new governmentKIEV, Ukraine (AP) Ukraines parliament approved the formation of a new government Tuesday, bringing an end to weeks of behind-thescenes political wrangling following an October election that ushered in a group of pro-Western parties. The new Cabinet has come together as government troops and Russian-backed separatist forces agreed on a tentative cease-re in one war-stricken region along the Russian border. That may provide much-needed breathing space to a national leadership that will have to work fast to keep the anemic economy from collapse. With the backing of parliament now secured, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, 40, will continue in a position he has occupied since February. Five political blocs, including Yatsenyuks Popular Front party, last month formed a parliamentary coalition that has vowed to enact an agenda of drastic economic and political reform.DNA: King Richard IIIs remains confirmed(Washington Post) Scientists are 99.999 percent sure, in their most conservative estimate, that remains found in 2012 really do belong to King Richard III. These results, published Tuesday in Nature Communications, put a 529-year-old cold case to rest all thanks to some intense genetic detective work. The British royal died in battle in 1485. But while he would be immortalized in his namesake Shakespeare play, King Richard III was buried without fanfare. The church that marked his grave had long since been demolished when researchers went looking for it in 2012, and pinpointing its former location took some investigating. But when they nally tracked down Greyfriars Church, its foundation and by extension, the body of a king turned out to be under a modern-day parking lot.Egyptian court sentences 188 people to deathCAIRO (AP) An Egyptian court sentenced 188 people to death Tuesday pending the opinion of the countrys top religious authority, the latest mass death sentence handed down by the countrys judicial system despite widespread international criticism. The 188 were charged over the killing of 11 policemen last year in Kerdasa, a restive town west of Cairo considered a militant stronghold. Forecasters: El Nio loomsMELBOURNE, Australia (Bloomberg) Forecasters in Australia and New Zealand warned El Nio may soon be back, reviving concern that the weather pattern that can bring drought to parts of Asia and rains to South America may return for the rst time since 2010. Tropical Pacic temperatures have exceeded El Nio levels for a month and the Southern Oscillation Index, or SOI, has remained at or near thresholds for three months, Australias Bureau of Meteorology said in a statement Tuesday. Is Mohammed the top baby name in Britain? (Washington Post) In Britain, baby names became a big subject of debate last weekend, when a new poll from the website BabyCentre appeared to show that Mohammed was now the most popular name for newborn boys in the country. It seemed to show a signicant change in the culture of a country where British-sounding names like Oliver and Jack had long dominated and where a growing immigrant population is making an impact. Traditionally, Muhammad is often the name given to the rst-born boy in Muslim families, Sarah Redshaw, managing editor of BabyCentre, explained to the Telegraph. With the increase of other Arabic names plus Aarav, an Indian boys name, the top 100 shows the ever-increasing diversity of the UK today. 50471015 Thomas Quigley, M.D. Board Certified Eye Physician & Surgeon F R E E E Y E E X A M F O R N E W P A T I E N T S complete medical exam with one of our board certified eye doctors includes prescription for eyeglasses, and tests for cataracts, glaucoma and other eye diseases.

Today in history On Dec. 3, 1984, thousands of people died after a cloud of methyl isocyanate gas escaped from a pesticide plant operated by a Union Carbide subsidiary in Bhopal, India. On this dateIn 1810, British forces captured Mauritius from the French, who had renamed the island nation off southeast Africa Ile de France. In 1818, Illinois was admitted as the 21st state. In 1828, Andrew Jackson was elected president of the United States by the Electoral College. In 1833, Oberlin College in Ohio the first truly coeduca tional school of higher learning in the United States began holding classes. In 1925, George Gershwins Concerto in F had its world premiere at New Yorks Carnegie Hall, with Gershwin at the piano. In 1947, the Tennessee Williams play A Streetcar Named Desire opened on Broadway. In 1960, the Lerner and Loewe musical Camelot opened on Broadway. In 1964, police arrested some 800 students at the University of California at Berkeley, a day after the students stormed the administration building and staged a massive sit-in. In 1967, surgeons in Cape Town, South Africa, led by Dr. Christiaan Barnard performed the first human heart transplant on Louis Washkansky, who lived 18 days with the new heart. In 1979, 11 people were killed in a crush of fans at Cincinnatis Riverfront Coliseum, where the British rock group The Who was performing. Todays birthdays Movie director Jean-Luc Godard is 84.

Jorgenson says his 11-year-old son, Kameron, wounded the buck in the town of Oneida. Deer hit the ground, and it came back up, and took off running, Jorgenson said. The father and son then tracked the animal through the woods to a neighbors property, Jorgenson told WLUK-TV. Before they could get to it, neighbor Randy Heyrman shot the buck twice from his deer stand to finish it off. With the deer dead and the hunters deadlocked over who could keep it, they flipped a coin. So I dug in my pocket. I grabbed out a quarter. (Heryman) did the coin flip. My boy called tails, and it was heads. And (Heryman) said, Well, it looks like its my deer then, Jorgenson said.ODD NEWS 9-point buck dispute settled with coin flip this year. The ofcial said the woman confessed during interrogation that she was al-Baghdadis wife. The ofcials spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations. In March, the Nusra Front freed more than a dozen Greek Orthodox nuns in exchange for the release of dozens of female prisoners by the Syrian government. A woman named Saja al-Dulaimi was reportedly on the list of prisoners freed by Damascus. A judicial ofcial said the interrogation of the woman was being supervised by Lebanons military prosecutor, Saqr Saqr, and that a DNA test was underway to conrm that the child is her son. Experts said it would be difcult to conrm whether the woman is indeed al-Baghdadis wife. It was unclear what would have brought the woman and child to Lebanon, where IS controls no territory and enjoys only small although growing support in some predominantly Sunni Muslim areas. The detentions added to the mystery that continues to surround al-Baghdadi, who has a $10 million U.S. bounty on his head. He has only made one known public appearance a sermon he delivered in July at a mosque in Mosul just days after IS declared him the head of an Islamic state, or caliphate, in the territory the group controls in Syria and Iraq. Last month, Iraqi ofcials claimed he was wounded in an airstrike. The U.S. has not conrmed those reports, and al-Baghdadi released a new audiotape days after he was purportedly hit. The Lebanese daily As-Sar rst reported the detention of the Islamic State leaders alleged relatives, saying the woman and boy were taken into custody near a border crossing point with Syria. It said the arrest came in coordination with foreign intelligence agencies. If the pairs identities are conrmed, the detentions could give Lebanese authorities leverage in their attempts to reach a prisoner-exchange deal with militants from the Islamic State group and the Nusra Front. The extremists have been holding more than 20 Lebanese soldiers and policemen hostage since August, and have demanded the release of Islamist prisoners held by Lebanon. On Monday night, the Nusra Front threatened to kill one of the soldiers it holds captive.WIFEFROM PAGE 1 The Avon, Ind., family was in Kissimmee driving to Walt Disney World in 2011 when the incident happened. The family says Derek Dunning almost ran them off the road and Brethericks father Ronald honked the horn. When he did, they said Dunning pulled in front of their pickup truck, jammed on his brakes and trapped them in traffic. When Dunning got out of his SUV and approached them, Ronald Bretherick displayed his holstered pistol. Jared Bretherick says Dunning told them he also had a gun and returned to his SUV and backed toward them. At that point Jared Bretherick took his fathers gun, left the vehicle and pointed it at Dunnings SUV. In 911 tapes, Ronald Bretherick repeatedly said his son was prepared to shoot Dunning. My son got out to try to get a better aim on him if he jumps out and tries capping at my family, the elder Bretherick told the operator. If he comes out with a gun in his hand, my sons going to drop him. No shots were red, but Jared Bretherick was charged with aggravated assault with a rearm. Dunning didnt have a gun. Friday argued the state should have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that someone wasnt using self-defense before charging them. It would seem to me if thats the case and thats your position it would require an entire trial, said Chief Justice Jorge Labarga. How can you make that determination ... unless you hear all the evidence? Assistant Attorney General Kristen Davenport told the justices no other states place the burden on prosecutors to prove someone wasnt defending themselves before charging them. She also said the pretrial procedure the Supreme Court established hasnt been questioned until now. Nobodys questioned it. Defendants arent complaining about it, the trial judges arent complaining about it, Davenport said. The Legislature knows what this court does. Theyve had four shots at amending this statute. Theyve never done anything.GROUNDFROM PAGE 1 enzyme key to metabolizing alcohol rst appeared. They looked for an enzyme known as Class IV alcohol dehydrogenases abbreviated to ADH4 in the guts of primates from whose family trees humans diverged as long ago as 70 million years. Their research was published Monday in the journal PNAS. Carrigans team found that the digestive enzyme ADH4, which begins to break down alcohol on the tongue and in the esophagus and continues to do so in the stomach, was rst found plentifully in the gorilla, a primate ancestor from whose lineage humans diverged roughly 10 million years ago. It is similarly found in more recent evolutionary ancestors, including the chimpanzee and the bonobo. Alas, without the genetic ability to produce ADH4, more distant ancestors of humans, including the orangutan, gibbon and baboon, would have developed no taste for alcohol. Long before they might have been drawn by the inebriating effects of ethanol, those primate ancestors would have rejected fermented foods because of the stomach pain, nausea, or physical discomfort associated with eating them. Our 10 million-yearold relationship with alcohol should come as no surprise, the authors of the latest research suggest. It coincides with the middle Miocene climatic transition, a period of rapid environmental change in which the fragmented forest ecosystems of East Africa were giving way to grassland ecosystems. In that period, our hominoid ancestors consumers of tree fruits all increasingly came down from the trees. As they dragged their knuckles along the ground, they would likely have found fallen fruit colonized by yeast and in various stages of fermentation. Those that could eat that spoilage would not only have fared better at living on the ground than those sustaining themselves on unripened fruit in the trees; they would have been more likely to survive lean growing seasons by virtue of their ability to eat fruits (and eventually meats) that were well past their prime. Indeed, our human ancestors may even have enjoyed the gauzily pleasant effect that consuming such fruit had. So, when humans developed the tools to do so millions of years later, they took yeast into their own hands and became deliberate makers of beers, wines and spirits.ALCOHOLFROM PAGE 1 even 70 years after World War II, said Lance, a co-sponsor of the bill and co-chair of the Republican Israel Caucus. We cannot allow Social Security benets to continue owing to those guilty of the worst atrocities in modern history, added Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y. Maloney previously called on the Obama administration to investigate the payments, which she described as a gross misuse of taxpayer dollars. The House vote came as two Republican senators demanded that the Obama administration provide Congress with records explaining how suspected Nazis received the pay ments and the role the Justice Department played in the program. Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Orrin Hatch of Utah cited the AP investigation in letters sent to Attorney General Eric Holder and Carolyn Colvin, the acting commissioner of the Social Security Administration. Grassley and Hatch back legislation introduced in the Senate to strip former Nazis of their Social Security benets. A vote on the Senate bill is expected in the coming weeks. In the new Congress that begins in January, Grassley will chair the Senate Judiciary Committee and Hatch will helm the Senate Finance Committee. The Social Security Administration refused APs request that it provide the total number of Nazi suspects who received benets and the dollar amounts. AP appealed the agencys denial of the information through the Freedom of Information Act. Former Auschwitz guard Jakob Denzinger, who ed the United States in 1989 and lives in Croatia, collects a Social Security payment of about $1,500 a month, the AP found. The White House and the Social Security Administration signaled support for denying benets to former Nazis following APs report. The Justice Department said it is open to considering proposals that would ter minate the Social Security payments. Grassley and Hatch are seeking broad categories of data such as the total number of Nazis who received Social Security benets and the dollar amount of those payments and details about specific cases. For example, they want to know if a former SS unit commander named Michael Karkoc, whom the AP located last year in Minnesota, would be able to retain his benets even if removed to another country. Theyre also requesting copies of communications between the Justice Department and Social Security Administration and the Justice Department and State Department regarding Nazi suspects who left the United States. NAZIFROM PAGE 1 PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) Four of the remaining nine USS Arizona survivors of the Pearl Harbor attack are vowing this years anniversary wont be their last reunion. The men in their 90s gathered for a news conference Tuesday in a building overlooking the memorial that sits on top of the Arizona, a battleship that sank in the Dec. 7, 1941, attack. Even though its the last ofcial survivor gather ing of the USS Arizona Reunion Association, the men said they still plan to get together, even if not in Hawaii. I dont think this is going to be our last. ... Weve still got time to go, said Louis Conter, 93, of Grass Valley, Calif. Well be back out here no matter whether the rest of the crowd can make it or not. Donald Stratton, 92, of Colorado Springs, Colo., was one of the few sur vivors of a gun director in the forward part of the ship. More than 65 percent of his body was burned. Stratton was hospitalized for more than a year and then was medically discharged from the Navy. He then re-enlisted a year later. The good Lord saved just a few of us, he said. Sunday marks the 73rd anniversary of the Japanese attack that killed about 2,400 sailors, Marines and soldiers. During a private event Sunday, the four men will toast their shipmates, drinking from replicas of cham pagne glasses from the Arizona. They will share a bottle of sparkling wine that was a gift to the survivors association from President Gerald Fords visit to Spain in 1975. The men arrived at the Pearl Harbor visitor center on Tuesday to military salutes, music from the U.S. Navy Pacic Fleet Band and photos by tourists. At the news conference, they reminisced about memories of the attack. I learned something about faith, said John Anderson, 97, of Roswell, N.M., recalling that he had just gone to church services and was heading to breakfast when someone said they saw the planes coming. He became teary-eyed as he discussed his twin brother dying in the attack. Its always like yesterday when were out here, Conter said. The survivors on Tuesday also watched a live-feed of a dive through the Arizonas sunken hull, which still holds the bodies of more than 900 of about 1,177 men who died on the battleship. Ashes of 38 survivors are interred there. National Park Service Historian Daniel Martinez, moderating Tuesdays discussion, seemed overcome with emotion when he announced that Arizona survivor Lauren Bruner, 94, of La Mirada, Calif., last year signed paper work for his intentions to be interred there. Conter plans to do the same, he said. It seems like after a while nobody pays attention to them anymore, after about five years, Bruner said of his decision not to be buried in a cemetery. I hope a lot of people will still be ... coming over to the Arizona and well be glad to see them.4 Pearl Harbor survivors gather for reunion AP PHOTOUSS Arizona survivors from left, John Anderson, Don Stratton, Louis Conter and Lauren Bruner arrive Tuesday in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. aaaaaQwC ,; Rsa 4a Boy 8org

How much do you think we should spend on close friends and family members? Dan Dear Dan: Not having a budget for Christmas probably isnt a great idea if you want to have a happy marriage! Its really not that difcult. I dont know if theres a certain amount that works for everyone, because everybodys circumstances are different. But you must have a plan when holidays or other special occasions happen especially when youre trying to get out of debt. If you have kids, you certainly need to budget for them. They may not get everything they want, but theres no reason there cant be something from Santa under the tree. You also need to budget a little something for your spouse. You can have a little fun with these gifts and make them more from the heart than the wallet. What if you gave your wife a coupon that says youll cook a real dinner for her and the kids once a week for the next three months? Or perhaps its a voucher for a free back rub any time shes feeling stressed and tired. Maybe you could nd a nice but inexpensive frame and put a favorite picture of the two of you inside. Trust me, Dan. You can have a wonderful, loving, quality Christmas without spending a lot of money. Youll have to spend a little here and there, but just make sure its an amount thats appropriate for your nancial situation. DaveBargaining with respectDear Dave: My husband and I are looking at getting a second vehicle. We found one we like, but theyre asking more than we can afford to pay. How do you make a low offer without making someone angry or insulting them? Angela Dear Angela: Its always a smart move to try and stay on the sellers good side. You want to be classy and diplomatic, and never point out the bad things about an item someones selling just to drive down the price. If you insult their merchandise or insinuate the price is unfair, youre likely to blow the whole deal right off the bat. How about this? Tell them its a ne vehicle, and their price is fair, but the amount theyre asking is outside your budget. Let them know how much you want to work out a deal, but, in order for it to t into your lifestyle, you can only pay a certain amount. You might throw in that a lot of people are selling things right now, and youre just looking for the very best deal. Maybe that, and letting them know you have money in hand, will help swing this thing in your favor.

We know they should not be common words; they must not be password, 123456, qwerty or abc123. (Martha, he just published our top secret password!) We know a good password is built around a phrase like To be or not to be. Take the rst letter of each word, capitalize rst letter and add date. The new password is Tbontb704. Its not a word, its not in the dictionary and it is very hard to guess but easy to remember. Use a familiar phrase, well never forget it. What if we do forget our password? Many of us respond with yes when our browser, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox ask if we want our password remembered. Very convenient not typing our password in every time we log in to a website. Time goes by, the browser gets reset, our passwords are gone and we want to check our email. We bring up the webpage and it asks for our username and password. Generally we all know our username, but password? If we dont remember the password, what should we do next? Many folks start typing any password they can remember, some even make some up. The important thing to consider is any legitimate company considers three or four password attempts a hacking attack and locks the account for 12 or 24 hours. Wait the appropriate time, put in three or four different passwords and lock the account for another designated time span. Here are the steps we should take. Take two tries, if no joy, admit we dont know the password and work the process of resetting our password. Every login, under the password eld will have a link labeled Forgot Password, or Forgot or some phrase that indicates the crux of our problem. Click the link and be taken to a page that begins the process of password reset. Companies will require proof that we are who we claim to be with a series of questions or the sending of a code that we must enter into a eld. They may also ask us the answers to secret questions we gave when we set up the account. Here is where entering one word answers to these questions sometimes years ago would have been helpful. For example 123 anywhere st is not the same as 123anywhere or Anywhere or Anywhere St. so if the question is what street did we grow up on, and we originally answered 123 Anywhere St no other answer will sufce. Binary buddies are precise, they cant guess what we meant and they match letters and numbers exactly. Many companies now send a text message to the phone number we registered when we set up the account and expect that code to be entered into a eld on the screen in a certain amount of time. Its safe to say, the less infor mation provided when setting up the account, the longer it takes to recover our account. The time to correct and answer security questions is while we have access to our account not when we are trying to login.

General Motors rose after reporting stronger sales, and Biogen, a biotech company, soared following news that its drug for Alzheimers disease showed promise. Reports that fewer people turned out to shop over the Thanksgiving weekend helped knock the market down on Monday. But those concerns were likely overblown, as other evidence suggests that people simply wanted to avoid the crowds at Black Friday sales, said Brad McMillan, the chief investment ofcer at Commonwealth Financial. IBM Digital Analytics, for instance, said that sales on Cyber Monday jumped 8 percent. I think what youre seeing is a little reality settling in, McMillan said. Look at Cyber Monday numbers. You see that and say hmm, maybe its not going to be so bad after all. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 13.11 points, or 0.6 percent, to 2,066.55. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 102.75 points, or 0.6 per cent, to 17,879.55, while the Nasdaq composite rose 28.46 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,755.81. Oil and gas companies led nine of the 10 industries in the S&P 500 higher. The one economic report out Tuesday gave investors some encouragement. Newly built houses and schools lifted U.S. construction spending in October to the highest level since May, the Commerce Department said. Overall construction spending climbed 1.1 percent, higher than economists forecasts. General Motors posted solid sales gains in the U.S. last month, helped by discounts and falling gas prices. GMs sales climbed 6 percent to nearly 226,000 in November. The carmakers stock gained 32 cents, or 1 percent, to $33.26.Energy companies lead stocks advance ILO0

DeLand police say 44-year-old Jason Puckett was charged last week with misdemeanor theft after a Walmart security guard spotted him slipping two packages of tongue into his waistband. When the guard confronted Puckett at the stores exit, Puckett denied stealing the packages and said he had put them back on a shelf. But the guard told authorities Puckett then removed the tongue from his pants when he didnt think he was being watched and ran from the store. Jail records show Puckett remained in jail Tuesday. Bail was set at $2,500.South Florida police searching for carjackerFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) Authorities in South Florida searched Tuesday for a suspect believed responsible for three armed carjackings and shooting two people, one fatally. Fort Lauderdale police spokeswoman Deanna Greenlaw said the victims, a man and a woman, were shot multiple times outside an insurance ofce in Hallandale Beach. The FBI later said the man had died. Their identities were not immediately released. Greenlaw said after the shooting, the suspect then drove a stolen car north on Interstate 95, crashing near downtown Fort Lauderdale and got away on foot. Some schools were locked down and trafc snarled on the busy interstate while authorities searched the area. The FBIs Violent Crime Task Force was called in to assist. The crime spree began shortly before 8 a.m. in Sunrise, where a woman and her son were ordered by the carjacker to drive to I-95, where they were released unharmed. Police say the suspect then drove that car south to Dania Beach and committed a second carjacking, followed by the shooting and third carjacking. The woman, who was in surgery at a local hospital, was believed by police to be the suspects ex-girlfriend.Stolen truck hauled food for needyCAPE CORAL (WINK News) A church working to help the community this holiday season has hit a major roadblock. The pastor at Grace Church told WINK News the box truck they use to pick up food for their food bank has been stolen. The church is located at Hancock Bridge Parkway and SE 21st Place, just down the road from the congregations thrift store and food bank. He said the truck was taken the day before Thanksgiving. Its used to pick up food and donations for the churchs thrift store. The window had been broken out and we saw the pieces of glass, and the truck was gone, said Pastor Jorge Acevedo. Its the truck we actually use to collect the food that we give away to about 500 families a month. Somewhere around 1,500 people a month, said Acevedo. With a shipment that needed to be picked up Tuesday morning, thrift store manager Donna Linder said they need to rent a truck. All of these things were like put on hold until we could gure out what we were going to do, said Linder. That is money then that we have to put out, versus, being able to help somebody.Judge suspends homeless feeding banFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) A judge has suspended enforcement of Fort Lauderdales ordinance restricting the public feeding of homeless people for 30 days and ordered mediation on the issue. The decision Tuesday by Broward Circuit Judge Thomas Lynch came in a challenge to the ordinance by 90-yearold homeless advocate Arnold Abbott, who has been arrested after defying it repeatedly. Lynch wants the dispute resolved through mediation or trial by the end of the year. The ordinance is aimed at keeping people from feeding the homeless in parks and other public places.Man sentenced to 5 years for card fraudORLANDO (AP) An Orlando man has been sentenced to more than ve years in prison for committing almost a half-million dollars in credit card fraud.

But the Tarpons still were a free throw and a few seconds away from leaving there with a rm grip on District 7A-11. Instead, Charlotte left with a painful lesson, one the Tarpons hope will not come back to haunt them. Mark Matthews nished a Fort Myers comeback with a backdoor layup with ve seconds left, leading the Green Wave over Charlotte 5250 in the district opener for both teams. Fort Myers trailed by 13 late in the third quarter, but stymied the Tarpons late. Defense and energy, the two things our program is spawned on, Matthews said. We got the stops when we needed to, we stuck up big time, we talked a lot. Thats what won the game for us.Waves late rally sinks Tarpons BOYS BASKETBALL: Fort Myers 52, Charlotte 50By ROB SHORESPORTS WRITER UP NEXTCharlotte: at Riverdale, Friday, 7:30 p.m.TARPONS | 2 VENICE Port Charlotte High School used a run of three-pointers to down Venice 53-41 in the district opener for both teams Tuesday night.

PIRATES | 2 UP NEXTVenice: at Lemon Bay, today, 7:30 p.m. Port Charlotte: vs. North Fort Myers, Friday, 7 p.m.ANN ARBOR, Mich. Brady Hoke is out after four years at Michigan. Interim athletic director Jim Hackett made the announcement Tuesday after weeks of speculation about Hokes future. I wanted to make sure that Brady received adequate time to exhibit the results that would come from his effort and I believe that Brady and our coaching staff had enough time to produce those results and unfortunately they are not there, said Hackett, who took over as AD last month. In the end, I feel that moving in a different direction is the right decision. Hoke did not return a message left seeking comment. In a statement provided by the school, he thanked his players and said he would miss them. I feel very fortunate to have been an assistant and head coach at the University of Michigan, said Brady Hoke. I will always support the university and this football program. Hired after the tumultuous tenure of Rich Rodriguez, Hoke was supposed to help Michigan regain its place among college footballs elite, and his familiarity with the programs culture and tradition made the initial transition a successful one. But after going to the Sugar Bowl in Hokes rst season, the Wolverines slowly slipped back into mediocrity and are not even among the top teams in the Big Ten. Hoke was 31-20 as the Wolverines coach after the team oundered to a 5-7 record this season and missed out on bowl eligibility along with Big Ten also-rans Indiana, Purdue and Northwestern. He was just 18-14 against conference foes. The last two seasons were characterized by poor play on the offensive COLLEGE FOOTBALL: MichiganMichigan fires coach HokeAP PHOTOMichigan red coach Brady Hoke on Tuesday.

BOYS SOCCER: DeSoto County 2, Cardinal Mooney 1Bulldogs edge a district foeARCADIA Omar Rendon didnt get much sleep Monday night. The rst-year DeSoto County High School coach had already been at the helm for seven games, but Tuesdays match against Cardinal Mooney kept him up. The Cougars pose perhaps the biggest obstacle for the Bulldogs in their quest for a District 2A-11 title. Thats why he was so happy when the nal whistle sounded. In the rst of two regular-season meetings with Cardinal Mooney, DeSoto County fended off a late urry of shots for a 2-1 district win. This is a team I feel were going to have to worry about. Theyre really tough, theyre stronger than us, Rendon said. We werent on our A-game I think our defense committed a lot of errors but the guys never gave up. The Bulldogs (7-1, 3-0) won on two-rst half goals in a span of less than two minutes. Junior Christian Ramirez struck rst in the 23rd minute, gathering a deection off teammate Ernesto Montalvos closerange shot and sneaking it past goalkeeper Michael Staikos amid confusion in front of the net. Senior Oscar Ponce add ed to the Bulldogs total in the 25th minute. Manolo Mejia corralled a long free kick from Rosario Zavala in the box and passed it to Ponce, who ripped a shot from the left side passed Staikos. Cardinal Mooney halved its decit in the opening minute of the second half when Alex Turner stole an outlet pass from DeSoto County goalkeeper Cesar Barajas and waltzed into the box untouched. Its the rst goal Barajas has allowed this season. It was a misunderstanding. Our goalie tried to pass it to one of our outside wings, and he made the mistake, Rendon said. The Cougars Nick Rigas missed a free-kick in stoppage time from just outside the box. Were 3-0 in districts, and these guys have faith in each other, Rendon said. We grow as a team day by day. And every time we play a game, we play it for somebody. And (Tuesday), they came out on top and they deserved.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com.By JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITERThey win rst of two games vs. Cougars UP NEXTDeSoto County: vs. Sarasota Military Academy, Thursday, 7 p.m. ARCADIA A pop-up rainstorm doused the DeSoto County High School soccer eld early Tuesday evening. Eight goals from seven different Cardinal Mooney players doused any hope of a Bulldogs victory. The Cougars needed just 67 minutes to nish off DeSoto County on Tuesday, winning the district match by mercy rule, 8-0. Our goal, once again, was to not be mer cy-ruled, Bulldogs coach Maria Munoz said. There were a lot of slides and a lot of runs that didnt even get nished because were not used to playing in the rain at all. So I think that had a little bit to do (with it). But most of all, our goal was, with a team like that, to be competitive. But its just not to be. It was a goal the Bulldogs sold out to try to achieve. The team mustered just two shots and none in the second half as its top two offensive threats, Lucero Perez and Angelica Garcia, played most of the game on defense in an effort to slow Cardinal Mooneys attack. They took it upon themselves. They told me, We dont want to be mercy-ruled. And I said OK, Munoz said. I know, when youre mercy-ruled, what it does to you, psy chologically. And theyre the ones on the eld. Im on the other side. I have to respect that. But even that wasnt enough to help DeSoto County avoid the fate it suffered. Catlin Teiford netted the Cougars rst goal before the rain stopped falling, scoring on a breakaway off a Bulldogs corner kick in the third minute. Cardinal Mooney added three more before the end of the half on Katrina Winklers shot off a deection in the 14th minute, Tatum Weishaars redirection of goalkeeper Diana Moyas save attempt in the 31st minute and Carolina Andersons breakaway in the 38th minute. Elena Ciacco made it 5-0 early in the second half on a header off a corner kick, and goals from Winkler, Skylar Jungers and Jill Polk in a six-minute stretch ended the match. I have to somehow nd a way to get them to trust themselves. To be able to go in and at least be there for every ball, Munoz said. I think if I can get that across to them, to feel condent to go for every ball, all they have to do is put the pressure on. So thats my challenge; to give them a little bit more condence.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com.Bulldogs suffer soggy setback GIRLS SOCCER: Cardinal Mooney 8, DeSoto County 0By JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER UP NEXTDeSoto County: vs. Sarasota Military Academy, Thursday, 5 p.m. WAUCHULA Jonathan Hill led four Lemon Bay High School players in double gures as the Manta Rays beat Hardee, 81-57, in the District 5A-11 boys basketball opener for both teams on Tuesday, Hill scored 14 points.

The Indians forced 16 rst-half turnovers and parlayed their full-court defense into a 12-0 run in the rst quarter, and an 11-0 push in the second. As Port Charlottes guards struggled to deal with the pressure, the Pirates shots would not fall, either. Guard Emily Treasure kept Port Charlotte competitive with 13 of her teams 16 rst-half points, but with little support, the Pirates were in a 36-16 halftime hole. Venice did exactly what I thought they were going to do: Play us physical, Port Charlotte coach Kevin Purcell said. I think at times we responded well to it and at times we didnt. I thought we came out and matched the intensity in the rst quarter, and then it just got away from us. Though their strength Tuesday was in their transition game, the Indians (6-3) worked the ball inside and out in their half-court set enough to see six players score in the rst half. Each player had her time to shine, with Korey Ream leading the charge early, Taylor Angelo and Emily Hanewinckel pushing through the middle and the reserves nishing strong. We have had a different high-scorer every game, except for once, Davis said. We dont have one scorer, we have a bunch of girls who can play. Its an awesome feeling in practice when we can actually compete against each other. Venice pulled its press in the second half, but Treasure continued to be the lone Pirate to nd the bottom of the net with any success. She nished with a game-high 33 points, including all 12 in the third quarter. The rest of the team had just 5. The Indians were led by Reams 13 points and Talee Howards 11 rebounds.VENICE 59, PORT CHARLOTTE 38Venice 13 23 12 11 59 Port Charlotte 8 8 12 10 38 VENICE (59): Korey Ream 13, Taylor Ange lo 10, S.

Thats what we par tially drew up, Massolio said. We didnt get the screen on the ball that we wanted. But wed draw it up again if we had to. It was a signicant victory for Fort Myers (33, 1-0 in District 7A-11), which was the district runner-up last season. Matthews led the Green Wave with 23 points, hitting 3 of his 4 3-point attempts. This is a huge win, Matthews said. (Weve still got to) play at their place, its a tough atmosphere to play. Charlotte (3-1, 0-1) suffered its rst loss, despite Gonzalez notching a double-double with 19 points and 14 rebounds. Scot Hundt also scored 19 points for the Tarpons. The pair combined to hit 8 of 11 3-pointers. But the bigger factor was Charlotte s 17 turnovers in the second half. We made some mistakes, Massolio said. They caused some mistakes weve got to learn from. The Green Wave turned over the ball on their rst three possessions, but were hardly alone: by 5:34 of the rst quarter, the teams had combined for seven turnovers to just four eld goal attempts and no points. Gonzalez took advantage of Fort Myers moving off man coverage and hit his rst 3-pointer from the left wing. Jackson Beers followed with another 3-pointer to give Charlotte a 6-0 lead with 5:00 left in the rst quarter. Matthews got into the act on Fort Myers next possession, draining a 22-footer for his rst three pointer. The shooting gallery known as the Wave Cave was open for business. Gonzales and Hundt nished the rst half with three 3-pointers as Charlotte led 25-19 at the half. Matthews also had three 3-pointers going into the break.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comFORT MYERS 50, CHARLOTTE 48Charlotte 14 11 12 11 48 Fort Myers 9 10 11 20 50 CHARLOTTE (48): Scot Hundt 19, Brandon Gonzalez 19, Noll 4, Beers 6.

Chase Leggett hit a pair of three-pointers to put the Pirates up by eight halfway through the second quarter. Wilkins hit a layup with a little over a minute left to snap a six-minute eld goal drought for the Indians, who went into the locker room down 24-15. Its tough to win against a good team when youre making those kind of mistakes, Venice coach James Slaton said. The Pirates began pulling away in the third quarter behind Keyshawn McLeods 15 points. Venice, which cut its turnovers in half in the second half, failed to capitalize on several late free throws, nishing 13-33 from the line. We guarded and we outrebounded them ...but we just didnt nish, said Slaton, whose team nished with 19 offensive rebounds. We didnt nish in the paint, we didnt nish in the three-point shots and we didnt nish from the free throw line. Its tough to win when you dont make free throws. More games are probably won and lost at the free throw line than about any other stat. Wilkins led Venice with 14 points. Port Charlotte coach Bill Specht said his team has a lot of little things to straighten out. He added that Tuesdays game wasnt pretty for both teams. We werent very disciplined and I think they outhustled us on the glass, Specht said. They killed us on the offensive glass. Youre usually rusty on the offensive end of the court, but if we cant rebound with them, were going to be in deep trouble. Weve got a long way to go and were going to be a lot better.PIRATESFROM PAGE 1 PREP SCHEDULETODAY Girls basketball Venice at Lemon Bay, 6 p.m. Island Coast at Charlotte, 7 p.m. Boys basketball Venice at Lemon Bay, 7:30 p.m. Girls soccer Lemon Bay at Charlotte, 7 p.m. Venice at Port Charlotte, 7 p.m. Boys soccer Charlotte at Lemon Bay, 7 p.m. Girls weightlifting North Port at Sarasota, 4 p.m. Wrestling Lemon Bay at Manatee, TBA THURSDAY Girls basketball Manatee at Charlotte, 7 p.m. North Port at Sarasota, 7:30 p.m. Community Christian at DeSoto County, 7:30 p.m. Boys basketball Community Christian vs. DeSoto County JV, 7 p.m. Girls soccer Sarasota Military at DeSoto County, 5 p.m. Braden River at North Port, 7 p.m. Boys soccer North Port at Braden River, 7 p.m. Port Charlotte at Venice, 7 p.m. Sarasota Military Academy at DeSoto County, 7 p.m. ..................................................................................................................................................................................................................... .............................................................................................................................................................................. :

The Sun /Wednesday, December 3, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 Ready to get back in swingWINDERMERE Tiger Woods is making his latest comeback in golf with an eye to the past. Equipped with a new teacher and a stronger body, Woods said Tuesday he is working on a swing that incorporates previous moves that date as far back as his amateur days. He referred to it as new, but old, and the 14-time major champion will start testing it this week against an 18-man field of elite players at the Hero World Challenge. This is the fifth time Woods has returned from injury the back, this time over the last five years. The breaks have ranged from four weeks to four months. He last competed on Aug. 9 when he missed the cut at the PGA Championship, ending the shortest season of his career (eight tournaments) and the first time he did not have a top 10. Woods said he had enough time off to let his body heal and to think about where he wants his game to go. First, he split with swing coach Sean Foley, ending a three-year relationship that produced eight PGA Tour wins but no majors. I think that physically, I just wasnt able to do some of the things that we wanted to do in the golf swing, Woods said. Woods said there was no reason to look back at old swings at the time because he felt he was headed in the right direction three victories in 2012, and five wins in 2013 in which he was voted PGA Tour player of the year for the 11th time. Those two years were relatively free of injuries. But unfortunately, physically I was getting damaged doing it, he said. He has hired Dallasbased Chris Como as a swing consultant, after longtime friend Notah Begay put them together. Woods said he had a plan, and that Como was on the same page. Woods concedes that age he turns 39 this month has kept him from overpowering golf as he once did. Ive gotten stronger. Ive gotten more explosive. Ive gotten faster, he said. I now just need to hit more balls.

They still might need to win the rest of their games, however. Miami is trying to end its six-year playoff drought, and a 16-13 comeback victory over the New York Jets left the Dolphins tied with ve other AFC teams at 7-5. While their 6-3 record within the conference helps in potential tiebreaker scenarios, the Dolphins have little margin or no for error in their nal four games, beginning Sunday at home against Baltimore (7-5). Coach Joe Philbin said he doesnt need to talk with his players about playoff ramications. They are aware, Philbin said Tuesday. Weve talked to them more about the month of December and the importance of each and every game in December. This one that we have coming up, Baltimore, both on paper and on lm, is as good as team as weve seen. To beat the Ravens, Philbin said, the Dolphins must play better than they did Monday night. Miami gave up 277 yards rushing and trailed for much of the game, but outscored New York 10-0 in the nal quarter to escape. The fourth-quarter comeback win was only the Dolphins second on the road since 2005, fewest in the NFL, according to STATS. The Dolphins had been 0-3 in games decided by four points or less. In all three defeats they blew a fourth-quarter lead. The Dolphins will face the Jets again in the season nale Dec. 28. Also remaining are games at AFC East leader New England and at home against last-place Minnesota. The No. 1 issue in practice this week will be run defense, a strength most of the season. Miami has allowed 478 yards rushing in the past two games, an average of 5.7 per carry. Missed tackles have been part of the problem, including three on a 47-yard run by Chris Johnson. We have to tackle better, Philbin said. This game is not overly complicated. NFL: MiamiDecember will decide Dolphins playoff fateAP PHOTOMiamis Louis Delmas, right, celebrates with Reshad Jones after Jones intercepted a pass against the New York Jets to clinch the Dolphins 16-13 victory on Monday night in East Rutherford, N.J. By STEVEN WINEASSOCIATED PRESS RAVENS AT DOLPHINSWHO: Baltimore (7-5) at Miami (7-5) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: Sun Life Stadium, Miami Gardens TV: CBS RADIO: 96.1 FM TICKETS: Ticketmaster.com WASHINGTON Members of the Senate Commerce Committee chastised the commissioners of the NFL, Major League Baseball, NBA and NHL for skipping a hearing Tuesday on domestic violence in pro sports, with one saying the absences reect a lack of focus on the issue. They were all asked to be here, and leadership does start at the top. And I do think that its pretty convenient that none of them were able to appear today, said Sen. Kelly Ayotte, a Republican from New Hampshire. That does say something about: How big a commitment is there going to be on this? Instead of Commissioner Roger Goodell, for example, the NFL sent Troy Vincent, the executive vice president of football operations, who ignored questions from reporters after the hearing and was led away by league employees. During his prepared testimony, Vincent a former player choked up while saying abuse was a way of life in his home when he was growing up because his mother was beaten. Domestic violence has become a main topic of conversation across the sports landscape in recent months, particularly in light of the case of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice. He punched his then-ancee, now wife, in a casino elevator and originally was suspended by Goodell for two games, then barred indenitely after TMZ released video of the ght. Senators pressed the representatives of the four leagues and their players unions on matters such as whether they conduct their own investigations, independent of police; whether coaches or other team personnel are required to report instances of illegal conduct to law enforcement; and what sort of help is provided for abuse victims. Youve got to under stand that the status quo is not acceptable, said Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat. There will be more accountability in the future. Peterson doesnt testify at hearing: Adrian Peterson did not testify at his appeal hearing, according to a person familiar with the case. Peterson gave a statement, said the person, who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because neither side is discussing the case publicly. Peterson left without comment after spending more than three hours at the hearing. He is seeking reinstatement after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him for the rest of the season for violating the leagues personal conduct policy. Rice says he had one bad night: Ray Rice said that an NFL team would have to be willing to look deeper into who I am and realize that me and my wife had one bad night. I took full responsibility for everything that I did, the former Ravens running back told NBCs Today show, and the only thing I can hope for and wish for is a second chance. Around the league: Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu will undergo surgery on his fractured left thumb today and could be sidelined until the teams regular-season finale. The Cincinnati Bengals signed Eric Winston, giving them another candidate to play right tackle with Andre Smith sidelined for the rest of the season with an injury.Senators press NFL on domestic abuseBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NFL NOTEBOOKRice hopes for second chance after one bad night Golf Directory 5301 HERON CREEK BLVD., NORTH PORT Between US 41 & I-75 Exit 182 423-6955 www.heron-creek.com Take a tour online at: DeepCreekGolf.com Nice People, Great Golf Call 625-6911 for Tee Times & Lessons Deep Creek Golf Club KINGSWAY COUNTRY CLUB BECOME A MEMBER FOR THE DAY 1 mile east off I-75 exit 170 (Kings Highway).

Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, December 3, 2014 MADISON, Wis. Jahlil Okafor vs. Frank Kaminsky. The big-man matchup tonight between No. 4 Duke and No. 2 Wisconsin in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge is about as good as it gets for college basketball in December. Badgers forward Duje Dukan offered a reminder that there will be eight other players on the court with two of the games top players. We look at is as Wisconsin vs. Duke. It might happen that they do get matched up on a majority of plays, but at the end of the day its our ve against their ve, Dukan said. True enough. Yet theres no denying the star power and contrasting styles that will be on display at 9:30 p.m. (ESPN) at the Kohl Center when the teams, both 7-0, get together. The 6-foot-11, 270-pound Okafor is Dukes latest likely oneand-done sensation, a freshman from Chicago who NBA scouts covet. Wisconsin coaches seem impressed with Okafors hands and his ability to maneuver in the post. He doesnt rush. He takes his time. He makes the right decision Hes impressive at any age, but being a freshman stands out, assistant coach Gary Close said. Kaminsky is a lithe 7-foot senior with an inside-out game that makes him a matchup nightmare. No McDonalds All-American here. Just a hard-working player who keeps getting better after exploding on to the scene last season. There is one big similarity between Okafor and Kaminsky: they are both preseason All-Americans. This game isnt about me, Kaminsky said. I really dont care what happens with me in the game as long as we win. That was certainly the case for in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament in the Bahamas last week. Kaminsky was 1 for 8 in the opener and limited to 6 minutes in the rst half in the second game because of foul trouble, before scoring 14 of 17 in the second half in the nal over Oklahoma to take tournament MVP honors. Coach Bo Ryan said Kaminsky, who is aver aging team-highs of 16.6 points and 8.7 rebounds a game, is playing with a lot of condence. He also joked that Kaminsky was another one of those guys in the long list of basketball players who commits a foul and looks like hes never committed a foul in his life. Wisconsin has a deep frontcourt, even with forward Sam Dekker watching a portion of practice Monday open to media from the bench. He wore a commemorative Final Four T-shirt, from last years NCAA run, over his jersey. Dekker, who was resting a tender left ankle he injured in the preseason, said he should be ne for the Duke game. Playing three games in three straight days in the Bahamas took a little toll. Sophomore Nigel Hayes has added the 3-point shot to his arsenal, while the 6-10 Dukan is averaging 8.4 points a game in helping to spell Dekker. Dukan, a senior, said he grew up a Duke fan, starting with the Blue Devils 1999 run to the national championship game. He is looking forward to playing in a tournament-like atmosphere in Madison. Its going to be a packed house, Dukan said. This is something you dream of, playing against teams like Duke.Big men take center stage in showdownBy GENARO C.

PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rays offered contracts for next season to all six of their arbitration-eligible players, including pitchers Alex Cobb, Jake McGee and Drew Smyly. The team also made the offers before Tuesdays deadline to inelder Logan Forsythe and outelders Desmond Jennings and Matt Joyce. Cobb was 10-9 with 2.87 ERA in 23 starts this year, and McGee was 5-2 with 1.89 ERA in 73 relief appearances.

Joyce hit .254 with nine homers and 52 RBIs, while Forsythe batted .223 with six homers and 26 RBIs. Marlins make offers to Fernandez, Yelich, Hechavarria: The Miami Marlins made multi-year contract offers to pitcher Jose Fernandez, outfielder Christian Yelich and shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, but none had accepted the offers as of Monday night, according to sources. The offer to Fernandez, as first reported by CBSSports.com, was for six years at just under $40 million, with club options for seventh and eighth seasons. But the Marlins arent especially optimistic because they are aware that agent Scott Boras typically doesnt like to do deals of this nature, preferring instead to take his players into free agency. Fernandez, who is expected to return this summer from Tommy John surgery, would not be eligible for free agency until after 2018. The Marlins have offered Yelich contracts for six, seven and eight years, according to a source. But the sides arent close on money. Braves let Medlen, Beachy go: Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy are becoming free agents following decisions by the Atlanta Braves not to offer 2015 contracts to the right-handers, both recovering from their second Tommy John surgeries. The Braves also did not offer a contract to right-hander Gus Schlosser. Once considered rising stars in the rotation, Medlen and Beachy did not pitch in 2014 after they had ligament-replacement surgeries during spring training.

The 55-year-old told the website Outsports. com he married Michael Rausch in November 2013 and that MLB and the other umpires were aware of his sexuality. Scott has been a member of the big league staff since 1986 and is a crew chief. He worked the World Series in 1998, 2001 and 2004.

In a shake-up to the tradition of the oldest trophy in international sports, organizers announced that Bermuda beat San Diego for the right to host the next Americas Cup in June 2017.

This will be the first time a U.S. defender holds the Americas Cup outside the United States.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, December 3, 2014 GAINESVILLE Florida has targeted Colorado States Jim McElwain to ll its coaching vacancy. Reporters followed Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley from the Fort Collins, Colo., airport Tuesday to McElwains home. A person familiar with the coaching search said Foley ew to Colorado to meet with McElwain and was expected to offer the Gators job to the former Alabama offensive coordinator. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because Florida has not announced details of the coaching search. Foley red Will Muschamp on Nov. 16, a day after the teams sixth home loss in eight games. Muschamp agreed to stick around for the nal two regular-season games and nished with a 28-21 record in four seasons. Foley detailed several requirements for Muschamps replacement, saying his next coach had to have high integrity, character and needed to be a t at Florida. The 52-year-old McElwain was born in Montana and spent much of his coaching career out west. He also has NFL experience, Southeastern Conference ties and a record of success on offense. McElwain is nishing his third season at Colorado State. He led the Rams to a 10-2 record and was named the Mountain West Conferences coach of the year on Tuesday. His offense ranks 13th nationally, averaging 498 yards a game. Foley said offensive success was paramount for Floridas next coach after four years of offensive futility. The Gators nished 105th, 103rd, 113th and 90th in total offense under Muschamp. McElwain took over a program that went 3-9 for three consecutive seasons (2009-11), but has undergone a turnaround. The Rams went 4-8 in 2012 and 8-6 last year before this seasons breakthrough, including wins against Colorado and Boston College COACHING CAROUSEL SCHOOL OUT (RECORD) BOTTOM LINE Florida Will Muschamp (28-21) 17-15 in the SEC and 2-6 vs. Georgia and Florida St. was not enough.

The Rams lost to the Falcons. AP PHOTOTrevone Boykin, holding o Paul Boyette Jr. of Texas during a game on Thursday, has TCU on the brink of strong-arming its way into the College Football PLayo. TCU moved up to No. 3 in the nal College Football Playoff rankings before the teams are selected to play in the national seminals, becoming the latest team to jump past undefeated Florida State. The Seminoles are fourth, still in position to reach the playoff if they can win Saturdays Atlantic Coast Conference title game against No. 11 Georgia Tech. Alabama is No. 1 and Oregon is second for the third consecutive week. The Crimson Tide plays 16th-ranked Missouri in the Southeastern Conference championship, and Oregon faces Arizona in the Pac-12 title game. The Wildcats ve-spot jump to seventh sets up a possible play-in game in Santa Clara, Calif., on Friday night. The Wildcats already have beaten Oregon in Eugene and could make another big jump by doing so again. TCU nishes its regular season at home Saturday against Iowa State, which is winless in the Big 12. It would seem the top four would be fairly well set as long as each wins this weekend, but committee chairman Jeff Long, the athletic director at Arkansas, said it would be premature to project out because the committee doesnt. Were waiting for teams to complete their body of work, he said. Ohio State, which lost its Heisman Trophycontending quarterback J.T. Barrett to a broken ankle last week, is fth. Long said the committee did not factor in Barretts injury this week but will when the nal rankings come out Sunday. The Buckeyes face Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game.Leap Frogs COLLEGE FOOTBALL: TCUTCU jumps FSU in playoff rankingsBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PLAYOFF TOP 10 The top 10 teams in Tuesdays College Football Playoff rankings.

Mississippi St. 10-2 AP PHOTOJameis Winston, right, and his attorney David Cornwell arrive at Florida States Materials Research building for his student conduct code hearing on Tuesday. It resumes today.TALLAHASSEE Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and the woman who said he sexually assaulted her spent nearly ve hours in separate rooms at a closed-door hearing recounting what happened nearly two years ago. The university hearing adjourned apparently with no resolution and is scheduled to resume today. Florida State held the hearing in a campus building to determine whether Winston violated the schools student code of conduct. More witnesses are expected to testify about what happened in December 2012. Winston look somberfaced as he left the hear ing and did not answer reporters questions as he left. Attorney David Cornwell, adviser to the Winston family and who is representing the QB at the proceeding, said the hearing went basically as we expected. The hearing before a former Florida Supreme Court chief justice is closed to the public and media. It is to determine whether Winston violated any or all of four sections of the code of conduct two for sexual misconduct and two for endanger ment. It is not like a normal criminal proceeding since attorneys for Winston and the former student are not allowed to question witnesses or make statements. UAB will shut down program: Alabama-Birmingham is shutting down its football program after one of the Blazers stronger seasons, the first school to make that cost-cutting move in nearly two decades. The university announced the decision minutes after President Ray Watts met with the Blazers players and coaches, while several hundred UAB students and fans gathered outside for the third straight day in efforts to support the program. UAB made the decision after a campus-wide study conducted by a consulting firm over the past year. When considering a model that best protects the financial future and prominence of the Athletic Department, football is simply not sustainable, Watts said in a statement released by the university. Georgia Techs Johnson named ACC coach of year: For the third time in his seven seasons, Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson was named ACC coach of the year. He is the only Tech coach to have won it more than once. Johnson has led the Yellow Jackets to the ACC championship game despite being picked to finish fifth in the division. At 10-2, Tech has earned the schools fourth 10-win season since 1956, but his second since his hire prior to the 2008 season. Around the nation: The NCAA said Georgia Southern cannot play in a bowl game this year, increasing the chance that Arkansas State will be invited to postseason play. Georgia Southern (9-3) won the Sun Belt with a 8-0 record, but it was its inaugural season in the FBS and therefore not bowl eligible. The school asked for a waiver on the rule. Mississippi and Hugh Freeze announced they reached an agreement on a new contract. Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork did not disclose terms, but said in November both sides were working on a deal that would pay about $4 million per year. Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon and Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa were named Big Ten players of the year while Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett was selected freshman of the year. Minnesotas Jerry Kill was honored as coach of the year.Winstons hearing will resume todayBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOKUAB says it will shut down unsustainable program CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES Pac-12WHO: No. 3 Oregon (11-1) vs. No. 8 Arizona (10-2) WHEN: Friday, 9 p.m. WHERE: Levis Stadium, Santa Clara, Calif.

Who will be the next Michigan coach? Some possibilities and why they do or do not make sense: Les Miles, LSU: One of the most successful coaches in the country during his 10 years with the Tigers. He is 103-28 with a national championship and another title game appearance. The last two times the Michigan job was open, Miles came up as a possible candidate. The 61-year-old Miles, who makes over $4 million per season, he has spent 10 years being underappreciated at LSU. Maybe its time to go somewhere he would be embraced? Jim Harbaugh, San Francisco 49ers: The former Michigan quarterback turned Stanford into a power and immediately turned around a 49ers franchise that had been languishing. Signs suggest he is not coming back to college, even if his rocky time in San Francisco. Michigan has to at least make a pitch if it already hasnt. Dan Mullen, Mississippi St.: The Bulldogs put together a dream season and Mullen has built a program that should be successful going forward, but its not realistic to think hes about to rip off a string of double-digit win seasons in Starkville, where State has the smallest athletic budget in the SEC West. The 42-year-old Pennsylvania native has spent much of his coaching career in the Northeast and Midwest before going to Florida with Urban Meyer in 2005. He is 46-30 in six seasons at Mississippi State. Pat Narduzzi, Michigan St. defensive coordinator: If you cant beat em, hire em. Michigan entrusting its program to a first-time head coach doesnt seem likely. It happened with Lloyd Carr, but he was a longtime Michigan assistant. Still, the Spartans have owned the Wolverines in recent years and Narduzzi has been a big reason why. The 48-year-old Connecticut native will be a head coach at some point. Why not in Ann Arbor? Butch Jones, Tennessee coach: A Michigan native and former coach at Central Michigan and Cincinnati. He won big in both spots and now is in Year 2 of rebuilding Tennessee. He and his staff have been cleaning up in recruiting, and he got a team lacking experienced players bowl eligible against a tough schedule this season. The arrow is pointing up for the Vols so its hard to imagine why the 46-year-old Jones would walk away.HOKEFROM PAGE 1 50476570 TEE TIMES 888-663-2420 Visit us at SunnybreezeGolf.com D e c e m b e r 2 0 1 4 December 2014 All New Greens Now Open 18 Holes $35 + Tax 9 Holes $20 + Tax Memberships Available For $350 poh-sunnGOLF C O U R S E201 ee

December 3 9, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 3 The holiday season is in full gear this week! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and are all rested up from holiday shopping because this week is lled with fun events you wont want to miss. There are holiday events taking place from Fort Myers to Sarasota, all through our region. This week, for example, we have the Poinsettia Festival and Holiday Lightning happening in North Port on Friday, Dec. 5. This is not to be confused with the traditional Poinsettia Parade. This year, North Port is doing the festival one weekend and the parade on the following weekend, Saturday, Dec. 13. This week is also the Venice Christmas Boat Parade, the 36th Annual Christmas Parade in Punta Gorda, and the annual Christmas Holiday Parade in Rotonda. An artistic weekend is planned for Englewood with not one but two craft fairs coming to town. Sarasota will also host the 5th annual Sarasota Craft Show at Robarts Arena and DeSoto rings in holidays with a parade, cards, and The Wall. Like I said, this section is jam-packed with events, so make sure you check them all out! Lets Go! have a good time. G ABRIELA M ENDOZA Lets Go! Editor Santa Claus returns to Venice Saturday night for the annual Venice Boat Parade of Lights. Chairs that lined Venice Avenue last week have been moved to choice spots along the Intracoastal Waterway in Venice. For this parade, many viewers bring picnic dinners to enjoy as they wait for the arrival of the rst boats. For those of us who watch from the walkway north and south of the Venice Avenue Bridge, the wait could be as much as an hour or more because the boats depart about 6 p.m. from the Albee Road bridge in Nokomis, before heading south in the Intracoastal toward the Venice Jetty and then east and south again, with a detour toward Venice Yacht Club and then nally back in the Intracoastal toward the Circus Bridge. There, the boats turn around and head back to the beginning or to home ports. Should it rain, the parade will occur on Sunday. Most years, there are at least 40 boats in the parade which dates to 1989. I have seen little dinghies pulled behind a larger boat, many cabin cruisers and some sizable sailboats. Hatchett Creek and Venice Avenue bridges are locked in the up position during the parade. Use the Circus Bridge to and from the island. Look for miles of lights draped on masts and rigging, holiday signs, singing passen gers, Santa Claus, elves, reindeer and plenty of gigantic holiday toys. Generators provide the power for lights and other electronic decorations which take days to install. As much as everyone loves the street parades, here in Florida, boat parades are especially popular. John Osmulski has chaired the parade committee for many years. Many of the boats in Saturdays parade will be in Sarasota, Punta Gorda and other boat parades during coming weeks.

December 3 9, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 5 ON THE COVER POINSETTIA FESTIVALFor more than a decade, the commu nity festival has been held following the Poinsettia Parade in North Port, but not this year. City sta has separated the event into two dierent days. The citys signature Poinsettia Parade will be held as usual on Dec. 13 at 5 p.m. along North Port Boulevard. However, the festival is planned for a week earlier on a Friday night. The festival will be centered around the annual Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony at 6 p.m. on the front lawn of North Port City Hall on Dec. 5. Students will perform on stage to kick o the tree lighting. Choirs from Imagine School at North Port, Lamarque, Atwater elementary schools will sing. Performances will be done by Dance with Janis, NEXXLevel students. There will be entertainment, a kids area, food and merchandise vendors, and visits with Santa. Be sure to check out the new gingerbread house display and competition in the lobby of City Hall. There will be a kids area with a carousel, Ferris wheel, trampoline and obstacle course. According to sta, by bringing the Poinsettia Festival to the City Hall campus, there will be more parking, an enhanced atmosphere with lighted front lawn, and access to additional resources for more activities and events at both North Port City Hall and the George Mullen Activity Center, 4790 City Hall Blvd. Traditionally, the Poinsettia Parade and Festival has brought thousands of residents together during the holiday season. However, as North Port continues to grow in population, the two events combined have outgrown the current location of North Port Boulevard and Dallas White Park. We hope the community will support this initiative and help us to make the Poinsettia Festival bigger and better than it ever has been, said General Services Director Robin Carmichael. Having this signature event in front of City Hall provides us much more room for fun, family activities. The city has also decided to redirect the parade route after 20 years. Instead of the parade beginning on Appomattox Boulevard, it will step o at Dallas White Park and end at Appomattox Boulevard. Residents can still line North Port Boulevard to watch the parade. The theme is A night of lights. So far the city has just over 25 oats. In the past, theres been about 60 participants, according to Carmichael. Nothing is planned at Dallas White Park after the parade. To participate in the 2014 Poinsettia Parade registration forms must be turned into the city by Dec. 4. The cost is $30 which is $5 more than last year for participants. Registration forms must be submitted to: City of North Port, c/o Parks & Recreation Poinsettia Parade, 6207 W. Price Blvd., North Port, along with the $30 registration fee. Old favorites such as the Shriners, local bands, civic groups and local business owners are expected to be in the parade. Alice White, the founder of People for Trees, is the Citizen of the Year and will be in the parade.Poinsettia Festival separate from holiday parade in North Port this seasonBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR SUN FILE PHOTOSFor more than a decade, the community festival has been held following the Poinsettia Parade in North Port, but not this year. City sta has separated the event into two dierent days. The Poinsettia Parade will be held on Dec. 13, while the festival is planned for Friday, Dec. 5.

The patriotic theme was chosen by the DeSoto Chamber of Commerce, sponsor of the event, because DeSoto County will be hosting the Traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall at the same time. A 3/5-scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., this wall will arrive in DeSoto County on Dec. 3. It will be set up at the Turner Agri-Civic Center, 2250 N.E. Roan Street in Arcadia and will be open Dec. 4 through Dec. 7, Pearl Harbor Day. The parade starts in the heart of downtown Arcadia, at West Oak Street and Orange Avenue. Many civic and charitable organizations, governmental bodies and local businesses, as well as individuals, will be represented as the parade makes its way along West Oak Street up to the DeSoto County Courthouse. After seeing the parade, head farther west on Oak Street which turns into State Road 70, and just outside of town at DeSoto Veterans Memorial Park, take a stroll along Christmas Card Lane. Red, White and Blue is also the theme for this years card display. The parade and Christmas Card Lane are free and open to the public. The Traveling Wall and all the exhibits associated with it are free, and parking is free, so be sure to make a stop there. The Wall is going to be guarded 24/7 while it is in DeSoto. The community undertook many fundraisers to bring The Wall to DeSoto County, including several barbecue sales and even a weight loss campaign. Among the displays and entertainment will be military plane and helicopter y-overs, live music from California Toe Jam and Lotela Gold, a classic car show Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Brotherhood Tent, Some Gave All display, and a variety of vendors of food and merchandise. This is expected to be the last-ever public appearance of this Traveling Wall, as the originator plans to retire.

16 Lets Go! E/N/C/V December 3 9, 2014 DINING OUTKwan Taylor may have only been an American citizen for the past six years, but she knows what Americans like. It didn't take the Thai native and owner of Thai Bistro in Venice very long to gure out that people in this country are looking for more nutritious dining options. "More and more people want healthy food," Taylor said. "Unlike a lot of other Asian food, which is fried, authentic Thai food is not. There is nothing here (at her restaurant) that is pre-prepared, and I cut up fresh veggies every day." When Taylor arrived in America 14 years ago, she didn't speak a word of English. Though she had gone to college and received a Bachelor of Arts in business administration in her native country, after she moved to Sarasota County, she started working in other Thai restaurants so she could learn that type of business. In the process, she learned to speak English, which helped her to get her own restaurant up and running. In 2005, Taylor and her boyfriend Manee Kumpee opened Thai Bistro, and began to serve up what many regular customers have described as the best Thai food in the county. Taylor said that the restaurant has been a success, because the two of them made a great team. "He wanted to open a restaurant because he loves to cook," she said. "And I love to talk." On the menu, Taylor has placed authentic Thai chef specialties, along with sauteed dishes, yummy salads, made daily soups and a whole selection of curries. She said that every dish is prepared fresh on-site, which allows each customer to request just the right amount of heat and spice for their taste. And when it comes to her soups, Taylor said her homemade coconut soup is one of the most popular. "It's the best coconut soup in town," she said. "I use fresh lemongrass, lime leaf and galanga root that I grow at home. In my curries, I use a lot of coconut milk, not water, which adds to the avor." Thai Bistro doesn't have a big walk-in cooler, and they don't store food in a freezer. Ingredients are bought and prepared when a customer places an order, and if you ever want to see exactly how your food is prepared, it won't be too dicult the restaurant has an open kitchen, which you can see from the dining room. Though Kumpee has since opened up his own restaurant in Tampa, Taylor and her three sisters are making sure that this Venice location maintains its reputation of making sure each customer gets to enjoy that authentic Thai Bistro experience. "I came to America rst, (before her three sisters) and worked three jobs a day," Taylor said. "I had traveled a lot and was a tour guide in Thailand, but learning about business made me learn about people and what they want ." Thai Bistro is at 537 E. Venice Ave., Venice. It is open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday; from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., for dinner Monday through Thursday; from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Saturday; and from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.

December 3 9, 2014 E/N/C/V Lets Go! 17 SIDE DISH PHOTO PROVIDEDThe ever-entertaining Francesco leaves them laughing every time at Bella Napoli. Note pocketful of pens in multinational colors.During peak Friday dinner rush at Bella Napoli in Port Charlotte, one hapless diner missteps and asks where the bread is. Server Francesco replies crisply, in a classic Italian accent: The bread is in the basket! He has everything under control; you diners had better get with the drill and make it snappy. He also cheerfully corrects broken attempts at Italian. GRAHT-see-ay! hell remind you briskly and repeatedly, if you dont get it right the rst time. Bostons Durgin Park made rudeness a waitsta job requirement because patrons came to expect the abuse. But Francescos blunt pointers are much easier to take than a Durgin Park waitress Speak up or shut up, buster! When he isnt giving and taking orders, he sings, punctuating his musical patter with gleeful outbursts of Frankie Vallis I love you, baby! He may have made his entertainment chops before he came to the States, while working cruise ships. In his white shirt and black shoes and trousers, the man is so in charge that he could easily be taken for the owner or manager, or at least the entertainment. Hes been an irreplaceable adopted member of this restaurant family for years. Owner Sal Aggimentis cousin Vito Recchia, as well as countless diners from years ago, remember that Francesco has been with them since La Dolce Vita days, when the pizzeria was housed in the Port Charlotte space now occupied by Sharks Fish House. Vito condes, Were not related, him and me, but hes still family, like an uncle, como un zio. We converse in Italian all day, every day. Ever since their next location, on Peachland, Francesco has carried multicolored ballpoint pens in his shirt pocket, the colors of the Italian ag in bright order. He recalls, One day my 7-year-old grandson says, Nonno, why do you have just the Italian colors? So I went home and added blue. The next time I saw him, I said, Dominic, notice, now the pens are Italian and American. Now Francesco has been immortalized in paintings gracing Bella Napolis new Kings Highway location. Of three murals hand-painted in the dining room under painted Roman arches, between faux-marble lions heads, Francescos imprint is on two. One, he proudly points out, shows his hometown in the shadow of Mt. VesuviusTorre del Greco, south of Naples. Francesco proclaims himself a Corallo di Torre del Greco, using the townspeoples nickname, Corallini, people of the coral. Some of the richest (now-pro tected) red coral in the world comes from this seaside area that was inundated by the volcanic eruption on the afternoon of August 24th, A.D. 79. This year, Francesco went there for a month-long vacation starting the following day, perhaps just to be safe. Another mural has magically transported Bella Napolis store front to Venice. From canalside, Sal gestures in welcome toward both his entrance and a youthful version of longtime associate Francesco. Thats me, last year, quips Francesco. One suspects that Francesco also appears next to a larger-than-life Sal in a full-color caricature of the entire crew that hangs inside the dining room entrance. Every day Sal asks when Im leaving for Italy, the indispensable Francesco grinned before his departure. Im gonna put up a big sign FRANCESCO IN ITALY with dates. Bella Napoli Pizza is at 1938 Kings Hwy., Port Charlotte, in Winn-Dixie Plaza. Call them at 941764-8000.

18 Lets Go! E/N/C/V December 3 9, 2014 DINING OUT WITHWhen a new ocer joins the Punta Gorda Police Department, Reverend Bill Klossner will take them to lunch at his favorite restaurant Santhinos located at 615 Cross Street in the Cross Trails Plaza. Klossner, who has been the departments senior chaplain since February 1998, said the restaurant has the perfect setting to chat and enjoy some great food at the same time. I love the lobster bisque here and the ceviche mixto (a grouper dish), Klossner said. But, everything I have ever tried at Santhinos is wonderful, especially the chefs specials. Brandon Abernathy, the general manager, has created a wonderful, extensive wine list. Santhinos owner Julie Vespia said she opened her restaurant about eight years ago. In the past, it was a Stu a Bagel and a Peruvian Restaurant. We have a little bit of an international-style menu, Vespia said. There is something for everyone. The house specials are ahi tuna, surf and turf, let mignon with Cajun spiced grilled shrimp, camarones inti, eight to 10 jumbo shrimp with a mild yellow Peruvian pepper sauce and a grouper Wisconsin sauted in wine, garlic butter, shrimp, scallops and melted cheese. Other favorites are ceviche, a grouper dish prepared in lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, cilantro topped with fresh onions. Santhinos also oers traditional Italian cuisine, fried calamari, chicken or veal piccatta, chicken or veal Marsala, seafood fra diavolo, chicken parmigiana, chicken Alfredo and chicken Francaise. And what would a restaurant be without oering steak. Santhinos menu includes a 10-ounce New York strip steak, an 8-ounce let mignon, steak Diane, twin medallions of let mignon pan-seared with mushrooms and a brandy demi-glaze and a let mignon Marsala. We also own Bemajs Bistro located at the Bob Cat Village Center in North Port, Vespia said. It has been opened about three years now. Klossner, originally from Madison, Wis., graduated from the United Theological College in Twin Cities, Minn. He served as pastor for two churches there and decided one day that he wanted something dierent. Our church was on a call system so I put in for Punta Gorda to be close to my family, he said. I moved here permanently on Sept. 1, 1988 and was assigned to the Congregational United Church of Christ as their pastor until my retirement. Klossner said Florida was a popular place for clergy to relocate to in the 1980s. With many new developments being built, churches were in short supply of pastors. The Congregational United Church of Christ started in 1984 and Klossner watched the building being constructed when he visited. I saw it go up in stages, he said. It was completed in May 1987. Chaplain for the police department is a totally dierent kind of ministry, Klossner said. He deals with crisis, personal and work-related relationships, and just being an ear for somebody who wants to talk. We have a great group of ocers, he said. Im also involved with the Do Thing Right Thing Program. Since his retirement, Klossners life has taken a new turn as a contact for various cruise lines. The program, called Distinctive Voyagers, is available through travel agents. I act as a host and I usually am responsible for 30 or 35 passengers, he said. But, it depends on the size of the ship. On the Windstar Cruise Lines, which are four-mast sailing ships, I may be host to eight people. I am not their butler or servant, but I try to resolve issues or answer questions. If I cant, I will send them to the right person for help. As pastor of a local church and the police depart ment, Klossner has made numerous friendships in town. It is evident when he walks into Santhinos and is greeted with hugs from the owners, managers, waitresses and customers. His reassuring and calming demeanor has endeared him to many residents. His inner strength has gotten him through dicult times, he said, especially the passing of his wife in April. I still have my moments and I stumble and fall, he said, but I get up, brush myself o and keep moving forward. Thats what you have to do in life. Santhino's Restaurant is located at Cross Trails Center, 615 Cross St., Punta Gorda. Hours are Tuesday through Friday from 11a.m., 2 p.m. for lunch, and Tuesday through Saturday from 5p.m. until 10 p.m. for dinner.

From its starting boat at the Albee Road Bridge in Nokomis to its turnaround at the Circus Bridge in Venice, there are literally miles of good view ing spots on either side of the Intracoastal Waterway through which the boats pass. By today, most of the boats are decorated and participants and their guests are rehearsing the carols they will sing. Generators to power all those lights are being checked again and again and viewers are planning their picnic dinners and snacks for Saturday evening. By Friday, there will be many roped-o areas where diehard fans will have picked their favorite viewing spots. There is easy access all along the Intracoastal Waterway, especially on the island side but also from the Historic Train Depot and its adjacent boat ramp which can be accessed from East Venice Avenue. Viewers do not have to trespass on private property and easily can nd excellent spots at the edge of the 100-foot-wide waterway. Members of Venice Yacht Club watch from the club as the parade detours in toward the club before heading back in the intracoastal on its path to the Circus Bridge. The picnic tables on the island side of the Venice Avenue Bridge are always the rst to be blocked o although the bridge briey blocks viewing of the boats as they pass under the span which will be locked in the up position for the parade. Only the Circus Bridge at the south end of the island can be used for going to and from the island Saturday night. Once again chaired by John Osmulski, the parade usually has 40 or more boats of various sizes and styles. Some entrants have been known to pull along a dinghy or other smaller boat as part of the theme, which is up to the individual entrant. The one thing everyone can count on is the chance to see a lot of lights, many Santas, reindeer and elves and to hear many Christmas carols, both recorded and live. Viewers will be oohing and aahing and snapping pictures as they cheer for friends and favorite boats. The rst parade was in 1989. There were 41 boats in that parade. Fifty boats seems to be an elusive goal, although the parade came close last year at almost the last minute. The entry fee for boats is $15. Donations make up the dierence to cover expenses, youth boat ing and college scholarships for students interested in marine science. MarineMax, Jacaranda Trace and Venice Yacht Club are regular sponsors at the gold level but any and all donations are welcome and tax-deductible as the parade is a 501(c)(3) organization. In the nine years that Ive run this, weve given away about $80,000 in college scholarships for Venice High School students, Osmulski said. We give away what we can each year, after the expenses are covered for the awards and awards reception. Designs seem to be more spectacular each year although the rules suggest keeping things simple and to make sure both sides of the boat are decorated the same way. The parade departs at 6 p.m. from the Albee Road bridge on Casey Key. Accompanied by police patrol boats, the parade heads south toward the Venice Jetty and then east and south again toward Venice Yacht Club before returning to the Intracoastal. There it con tinues south past the Hatchett Creek and Venice Avenue bridges to the Venice Circus Bridge near Center Road. The rst two bridges are locked in the open position to allow passage of the boats during the parade. We do it to give back to the community, Osmulski said. By doing this we get more back than we give.

Email responses to upbeat@sun-herald.com by noon Friday. READERS ROCK! George McLain, known locally as "The Caribbean Cowboy," believes in "Painting with sound." "I try to write my words so a blind man can see them," he said. Originally from Texas, McLain has experienced a long, often tumultuous career that began in Bakersville, Calif., where he honed his musical skills as a singer, songwriter, guitarist and keyboard player. "I played with big-name house country/rock bands in the s and s," said McClain, "but my love for music spurred me on to another direction. After play ing ve nights a week with house bands, I learned to play and memorize the lyrics to many songs, met rising celebrities, and opened for some of the biggest names in show business. Eventually, however, I saw that time was passing, took the plunge, and set o for Nashville, Tennessee." It was important for McClain during that period to follow his dream of becoming a successful songwriter, and what better place to be than "Music Row" where he worked in a production company whose motto was: "Why chase a dream if you can catch it?" For McLain, Nashville proved to be the best of all possible worlds until circumstances beyond his control forced him to change directions and head back to Texas. In Austin, he found a job as an extra, body double, and stuntman in the ill-fated Disney movie "Santa Anna." In a sudden, rather comical twist of fate, McLain was assigned to play the part of the hangman. Because he had donated his hair to "Locks of Love" and no longer looked like a soldier, the short hair look as a hangman t perfectly. McLain, bored with playing extras, later headed to the Bahamas at the invitation of a fellow musician and spent three months performing at the Sandals resort, impersonating celebrity singers such as Johnny Cash. In the Bahamas, a group of Jamaican musicians dubbed McLain the "Caribbean Cowboy," and the name stuck. McLain relocated permanently to Englewood after visiting a friend six years ago. As a solo performer at Southwest Florida clubs, private events, and tiki bars, The Caribbean Cowboy's repertoire included more than the expected country/western tunes. "There are two kinds of songs good and bad," adds McLain, whose music encompasses a variety of genres including Americana, folk, blues, and ballads. "I'm being partial, but customers really appreciate the songs I have written or recorded and often request them," he said. Two years ago, while playing at Ricaltini's, a popular Englewood restaurant, McLain met Stephanie Drexler who was working as their front manager. He noticed that she was keeping time with the beat so he handed her a percussion instrument called an "egg shaker" and invited her to join him on stage. "I created a monster," quips McLain, "and now we perform as a duo, with Stephanie singing and playing the congas as well as other percussion instruments. Drexler, a former talk-show host for the Clemens, Mich., Chamber of Commerce and a stage actress, now works as the act's manager. For bookings, call her at 941-275-3842.

The Venice production is being directed by Kelly Woodland with music direction by Peter Madpak, choreography by Laura Priscilla Homan, set by John Andzulis, costumes by Stephanie Gift, lighting by Ryan Mueller, sound by Dorian Boyd and stage management by Linda Kochmit. Tickets are $13-$28. Dec. 12 and 13, Venice Theatre presents one of the most well-received oerings from Junes international festival which was held at Venice Theatre Our Daily Bread, presented by a company from Argentina. Performed by two actors in an up-tempo silent movie style, it relates the story of the couples relationship from rst meeting to old age, including child-rearing and midlife crisis. Bread is the center of the show with a whole lot of kneading and such going on. At the festival it was presented as a one-hour show in festival format. This time, audiences will be able to see the entire two-hour production on the main stage. Tickets are $25. Opening next on the main stage will be A Christmas Carol, with original music by E. Susan Ott, lyrics and new music by Scott Keys, this version of the classic Christmas story and its ghosts of Christmas, Past, Present and Future has become an area favorite. Eric Watters returns once again as Ebeneezer Scrooge and several Venice Theatre students who are now in college will be home in time to take part in the show.

This year there is new music arranged and scored by Jason Brenner. Tickets are $10 for children, $13 for college students and $17 for adults. It will play on the main stage, Dec. 18-21. Following A Christmas Carol on the main stage, Dec. 21-22 at 8 p.m. will be The Sounds of Christmas, sung by the theaters talented singers. Tickets are $12-$24. Not a holiday show but one that should be on your gift list both to give and to receive is Disneys and Cameron Mackintoshs Mary Poppins, which will play on the main stage, Feb. 17-March 15, the height of Snowbird Season. Likely to be a sell-out in any season, this one could well sell out before it opens. While ordering tickets to the holiday shows, it might be a good idea to order tickets to this show as well. The show features music and lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman and book by Julian Fellowes with new songs and additional music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. Co-created by Cameron McIntosh, it is set in England in 1910 and features the troubled Banks family, jack-of-all-trades Bert, young Jane and Michael and the one nanny capable of taming them Mary Poppins.
