To see Ray Hazel, you’d never think he was visually impaired. Blind, to a large degree. The only hint is a long, aluminum ski pole tipped with a white plastic ball swept side to side along the oor when he walks into a room. At home, Ray uses a specially equipped laptop and projectormagnier for emails. The equipment also allows him to write stories. Ray Hazel, 71, recently published a ctionalized memoir, “The Dusty Trail,” about growing up along the St. Lawrence Seaway in far-northern New York. The book tells of his relationship with his great uncle, who taught him to sh, hunt and trap. With it came deeper lessons. “I learned more from that experience than anything I learned in school,” Ray said last week. “Values, nature, wildlife and balance, conservation.” In the 1950s, school in Messina, N.Y., was split-sessions, so Ray spent mornings outdoors with his great-uncle. “He had lived off the land his entire life, and he gravitated toward me because I lived right next door and I was interested in this stuff,” Ray said. He kept at it when he got a job with Alcoa. Ray retired at 56, but soon realized his sight was declining. He had wet macular degeneration. “I had always wanted to write a novel, and I really lost the ability to do that after I retired, due to my vision,” he said. After moving to Englewood a few years ago, sons encouraged him to take a stab at a memoir of his childhood and outdoors education. With the help of the Lighthouse of Manasota, he could. The organization set him up with the laptop, special keyboard and projector. Special software reads printed words aloud. A Lighthouse tutor guided him. And so began the book. “I didn’t have any (literary) training. I didn’t have an outline, anything. I didn’t have any idea about where the book was going,” he said. But it fell together well, and now he’s planning a sequel. As for the shrinking visual world around him, Ray said, “There are a lot of misper ceptions about low vision, acute low vision and blindness.” With low vision, “People think you can see. They think you’re playing games with them.” But great effort goes into daily tasks. Ray recognizes voices, smells perfume, gravitates toward familiar places and uses the blind stick to feel his way through the wider environment. And far from a stroll down a sun-lled path, gradual vision loss — as with any physical impairment — often leads to depression. Not Ray. “For me, I just felt I had to keep moving — one foot ahead of the other — physically, psychologically and emotionally. “Because I was blind, or going blind, I started thinking about it from a different perspective: The less vision I had, the clearer I saw things.” And there came an inner benet: “It actually made me a better person. It’s maybe hard to explain, but there’s a certain amount of humility that goes with it.” As for the writing, Ray added, “This is a form of contributing, too. It’s a form of actually keeping my brain occupied and trying to pass on a little something that somebody might enjoy.” (Ray Hazel will give a talk at 10 a.m. Thursday at the clubhouse of the Sandpiper Key condominium in Englewood. He also will have a display Saturday at the Dearborn Street Book Festival, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in Pioneer Park.) Life story? Contact Stephen Baumann at 941-681-3003 or sbaumann@sun-herald. com.Clearer vision of life values PUNTA GORDA — A Charlotte County Sheriff’s Ofce investigation recently concluded that the recording of privileged conversations between attorneys and their jailed clients was caused by a malfunction with video-chat software, which is operated by a third party. Ofcials say the issue has been xed. However, the effects could linger for a while. “I think there’s still some more to be done before we know the whole story,” said Port Charlotte-based defense attorney Russell Kirshy. “Every attor ney in the county who had a client in jail and used video chat is going to look at this.” The county’s chief assistant public defender, Toby Oonk, learned last month that a prosecutor with the State Attorney’s Ofce received — from a jail detective — a recording of Oonk privately talking to Dwayne Johnson, a jailed client he is representing in a pending murder case. Oonk is asking a judge to remove the SAO for the 20th Judicial Circuit from the case. The matter will be discussed at a hearing Friday at the Charlotte County Justice Center. The SAO claims no one watched the video because Sheriff’s report sparks case reviewsBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERCASE | 6 Punta Gorda, the place for pickleballPUNTA GORDA — When pickleball pro Scott Tingley started playing the sport three years ago, he was one of a handful of people who could be found swinging a paddle at Gilchrist Park in the summer. “There were only four of us out there playing in the heat,” Tingley recalled. Today, hundreds of players line up at pickleball courts across the county to play one of the fastest-growing sports in the country.By BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERPICKLEBALL | 6MURDOCK — With a broad spectrum of past and present drug users, from Vietnam-era veterans to young people who share needles despite the risks, Charlotte County has one of the highest rates of hepatitis C in the state. But a rst-of-its-kind clinic that helps those who cannot afford the expensive treatments is making a difference. The Charlotte County Hepatitis C Clinic, a joint venture between local doctors and the Charlotte County Health Department, serves patients who have the potentially fatal liver infection to help prevent the spread of the virus. Opening in 2012, the clinic continues to be a model of care to offset the cost of treatment. “The biggest hurdle is the cost of the drug,” said Dr. Mark Asperilla, clinic medical director. Traditional treatments require up to 12 months to be effective at a cost exceeding $100,000. However, recent medical advances have cut both the costs and the time needed for treatment. Asperilla said it now costs about $30,000 per patient and treatment takes 12 to 24 weeks, depending on a patient’s response to medication. In the past year, 65 patients have been treated for the disease, with 55 now in remission, allowing the liver to regenerate, for an 85 percent positive outcome. Currently, there is a waiting list of 21 patients. Hepatitis, which means “inammation of the liver,” can be triggered by Hepatitis C Clinic treats poor, achieves successBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERCLINIC | 6 SteveBAUMANNCOLUMNISTLIFE STORIES SUN PHOTOS BY BRENDA BARBOSA Dozens of pickleball players gather in Punta Gorda each day to play one of the fastest growing sports in America.

Featured EventsPAID ADVERTISEMENTSVillage Place Nursing and Rehabilitation in Port Charlotte often schedules entertainment for their residents. So last week, the room was packed with people ready to hear The Dunnemans’ unique style of gospel singing and lighthearted banter. However, the room contained some extra guests. And before the entertainment began, they all joined in to sing “Happy Birthday,” because it isn’t often that a resident turns 105. Marie Palmer beamed through it all, surrounded by family — some local, from Venice, some from as far away as New Jersey — a best friend and former caregiver, and her friends at Village Place. Palmer is the rst one in her extended family to live so long. For some reason, a lot of the women died at age 92, she said, the longest any had lived. The secret to her longevity? Keeping busy, taking an interest in people and talking with them. Movies are a favorite pastime. Village Place often shows movies that the residents can attend, and Palmer tries to see them all. Asked what types of movies are her favorite, she answered, “All of them!” She recently saw “Shall We Dance?” and “Water for Elephants.” “You know, we used to get our news at the movies,” she said. “We didn’t have television or even radio back then. But when you went to the movies, they came out and gave you the latest news before the show.” A daytime movie cost 15 cents, she recalled. Evening shows were a little bit more. The Depression is the event that stands out most in her life, she said, referring to the one that began after the stock market crash in October 1929. “It was awful; people lost their businesses and their homes,” Palmer said. That’s why her favorite president was Franklin D. Roosevelt, because his programs helped people get back to work. Nevermind about his private life, she said. Palmer paused at one point to answer her cellphone. Clearly, she has not let technology pass her by. “I just can’t always answer it in time,” she said, with a shake of her head, noting that her hands sometimes don’t work as well as they had in the past. Before moving to Florida, Palmer was a county committeewoman in Essex County, N.J. When her husband became ill, they moved south to escape the northern winters. She said they lived in a retirement community, where they had fun going to dances and picnics. He has since passed away. According to a recent Social Security report, about one in four 65-year-olds are expected to live to age 90; and one in 10 past age 95. Marie Palmer has those numbers beat by a good 10 years. She feels fortunate to have good health and a strong mind. Her hearing is better than most people 20 years younger. Surely, her positive outlook and interest in people have kept her young at heart and still enjoying life at 105.

Our Town Page 4 C The Sun /Tuesday, February 17, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS The deadline to apply to be a consultant for area nonprots through the Gulf Coast Community Foundation is Feb. 27. Wendy Deming, chief and staff and corporate secretary for the foundation, said the GCCF is seeking individuals with experience with corporate expertise — either with a for-prot or nonprot organization — to par ticipate in the “Invest in Incredible,” or I3, program. “At Gulf Coast Community Foundation we believe the most important thing we can do is to help build the capacity of nonprots,” she said. “We are looking for a diverse group of individuals to help with organization, development, fundraising and strategic planning.” Applicants for the I3 program need to have signicant experience — previous service on a nonprot board is helpful but not required — and be willing to spend time working with the local organizations. “That is critical,” Deming said. “We don’t have a minimum or maximum time commitment, but consultants need to be willing to take the time to share their expertise.” Consultants are not volunteers and will be paid for their time. “Participating experts are asked to commit to a standard hourly rate of $125 when working under an I3 contract and provide up to 16 hours of free consulting time in exchange for the training,” according to the application. “People who already have a consulting business set up can apply, but it’s also good for retirees who want to help out their community,” Deming said. Deming said consultants will be given one assignment each quarter either working on a specic project or helping with overall planning. “It really depends on what the organization needs,” she said. Deming also said GCCF works with a variety of nonprots including local arts groups, health and human services organizations, civic groups and others. “Anyone with a 501(c)(3) status can participate,” she said.

GULF COVE — Cornel Dolana hasn’t thought of which actor would play him if his true story of escaping from prisons in Yugoslavia was produced in Hollywood. Now the 76-year-old Gulf Cove Point resident not only has that to think about, but the many other details extracted from his book, written by freelancer Sharon Rushton, which is on its way to becoming a movie. Dolana’s story “No Paved Road to Freedom,” was published in 2011. It tells of how he escaped from Communistcontrolled Romania. Rushton rst heard Dolana’s story from his son and found it compelling enough to use it as the basis of her novel. She became sick with cancer and had to undergo treatments, delaying the book’s release. However, once she was back on track, the fruits of her labor were honored by Stars and Flags Books who gave her the Gold Medal, and the Military Writers Society of America awarded Rushton with the Bronze Medal in the national organization’s annual award competition. Earlier that year, MWSA selected “No Paved Road To Freedom” as its Book of the Month. As newfound recognition brought attention to the book, a woman in New York read the novel. “Her son, Michael Cuccolo, is a writer and producer and works with 36lms (a production company he founded),” Dolana said. “He lives in Santa Monica and is really busy. While lming in New York, his mother insisted he take some time and read my book. He did, and I got a call from him asking if I would be interested in having my life story turned into a movie. The producer has optioned the movie rights. The screenplay is being written right now.” On Cuccolo’s Facebook page, he called Dolana’s novel, “The ultimate American Dream story!!!!” Dolana grew up on a family farm in Romania. He never told his parents, friends or anyone else his intentions to escape. He started planning to leave Romania when he was 17, in 1955. His way to freedom included a harrowing swim across the Danube River into Yugoslavia in 1959. But in Yugoslavia, he was arrested and escaped from prison twice. Dolona nally crossed into Italy in 1959. After studying electronics in France, the Baptist Church of Branford, Conn., served as his sponsor in the United States. He immigrated to the U.S. in 1962 and settled in Connecticut before moving to Florida. “I worked for $1.50 an hour,” he said. “I really just wanted to learn the language. I didn’t want to get paid. I was told that’s not how it’s done in America. You get paid for working. I eventually started my own business.” Dolona said his wife Emilia, whom he married in 1963, hasn’t gotten overly excited about who will play her part in the movie; however, his young granddaughters are interested in being in the movie. “The girls call me every day,” he said. “I have three kids and ve grandkids and it’s the granddaughters who all want to be in the movie, even if they are an extra. Some of them are in college but don’t care, they are excited about the movie. They want to know what’s going on with it every day.” Dolona said he’s especially happy to learn his novel could become part of the curriculum at a college in Connecticut where his granddaughter goes to school. After she wrote a paper on her grandfather being her hero, the professor inquired and learned more about Rushton’s novel. The professor submitted it to the college board for consideration. “They approached my granddaughter,” he said. “It’s pretty amazing. We will nd out in early March if the book will be taught in the college.” Dolona signed the contract for the screenplay. He keeps the movie contract closely guarded. He will have more details once the screenplay is nished in six months. “I believe the director will want to talk to me a little more,” he said. “I look forward to this becoming a reality.” Rushton’s “No Paved Road to Freedom” is available at Amazon. com and www.

Our Town Page 6 C The Sun /Tuesday, February 17, 2015 FROM PAGE ONE drugs, toxins, alcohol abuse or hereditary conditions. However, it can also be caused by a virus — the most common strains being labeled hepatitis A, B and C — and transmitted via blood-to-blood contact. There are vaccines available for types A and B, but there is no vaccine or cure for hepatitis C. “It’s a horrible disease. It’s extremely contagious, way more contagious than AIDS,” Dr. David Klein said. While there is hope for the aficted, access to medical care can be a challenge. “This disease is treatable,” Klein said. “Imagine having a fatal disease where it can be treated but you don’t have the money or insurance, so, sorry, you’re going to die.” According to the 2013 Charlotte County Community Needs Assessment survey, almost half (47 percent) of the respondents reported not having health insurance. Many without insurance do not seek treatment or get tested, or even know they may have the virus. That just increases the opportunity for spreading the disease. The real-life consequences of not treating the disease, however, can be even more costly. An estimated 3.2 million persons in the United States have chronic hepatitis C virus infection, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Approximately 15,000 people die every year from HCV-related liver disease. In Charlotte County, there were 274 new cases of hepatitis C reported last year. This followed 221 new cases in 2013, 321 in 2012 and 197 in 2011, according to the Charlotte County Health Department. The disease progresses very slowly. Within 20 to 30 years after infection, up to 20 percent of those with chronic disease will develop cirrhosis, and from 1 percent to 5 percent have liver cancer. And because symptoms may not surface for decades, the older population that exists in Charlotte is particularly susceptible. CCHD epidemiologist Ana Scuteri said most of the new cases here are from baby boomers who were infected with the virus 20 years ago but didn’t know they had it. Young intravenous drug users who share needles also are adding to the numbers. To halt the disease from spreading, Scuteri said older people need to get tested, and young folks must stop sharing needles. “It’s basically a matter of education,” she said.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comCLINICFROM PAGE 1 KLEIN “There are courts popping up all around here,” he said. Indeed, in the last several months the Punta Gorda YMCA, where Tingley teaches, has added pickleball to its long list of activities. There are four dedicated pickleball courts at the facility now, and dozens of members playing each week. The sport has gotten so popular, the Punta Gorda City Council recently agreed to shell out more than $11,000 to install eight permanent pickleball nets, as well as paint and re-stripe eight courts, at Gilchrist Park. The move ended a long-standing tug-of-war between tennis players and pickleballers vy ing for play time at the park. “We started with 30 people and now we’re up to 800,” said David Fox, spokesman of the Punta Gorda men’s pickleball club on a recent weekday morning at the courts. Coming from Ohio where the weather is cold and pickleball is hot, the Punta Gorda Isles resident dreamed of long days on the court playing a sport he loves. The problem was, the city had no designated pickleball courts. So, Fox made it his mission to change that. “There’s a real social component to it,” Fox said. “You come out here on a nice day, meet up with your friends, get some exercise in and just enjoy yourself. It’s a lot of fun.” Invented in 1965 by Washington State congressman Joel Pritchard and his friends, Bill Bell and Barney McCallum, pickleball has become one of the fastest growing sports in the country. Much of the appeal is due to its accessibility: people of all ages can play, it doesn’t require a lot of fancy equipment and the rules are simple. As the story goes, Pritchard and Bell were originally planning to play badminton, but could only nd damaged equipment and a plastic ball. The perforated plastic ball was too heavy for the already damaged rackets, so the men used ping-pong paddles instead. The plastic perforated ball used to play was, in fact, a ball enjoyed by Pickles, Pritchard’s cocker spaniel. Whenever an errant shot was made, Pickles leaped at the opportunity to reclaim his possession, picking up the ball and running off with it. Hence, pickleball was born. For the most part, the game followed badminton rules, except the net was lowered to the ground at a height of 36 inches. “Anybody can play it,” Fox said. “There’s not a lot of running. It’s a little like ping pong.” On any given day, dozens of pickleball players can be found gathered at Gilchrist Park to sneak in a few games. Some are there all day. They pack coolers, bring their lawn chairs and enjoy the Florida weather. “It really gets packed down there,” said City Councilwoman Kim Devine. “It’s a really popular sport.” Devine, who lives near Gilchrist Park, also pushed for pickleball courts at the Cooper Street Recreation Center where there are lighted tennis courts. “It helps bring awareness to Cooper Street and show people what a neat place it is,” she said. Punta Gorda ofcials also have encouraged pickleball players to organize tournaments in the city to boost business — an idea avid players jumped at. “I think that’s going to grow even more,” Tingley said. “It’s so much fun and you’re still getting exercise. It’s a great sport.”Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comPICKLEBALLFROM PAGE 1 they knew they shouldn’t. In the meantime, the Sheriff’s Ofce looked into why a video chat between a lawyer and his jailed client was recorded in the rst place — an infringement on a defendant’s rights to have conver sations with his attorney kept private. The CCSO investigative report was released late Friday. It shows there could have been more than 1,900 such recordings dating back to 2011, when the agency’s video chat software began malfunctioning. But, the Sheriff’s Ofce claims only ve privileged conversations — including the video of Oonk and Johnson — were recorded and distributed, all by mistake. The attorneys in all the distributed recordings are members of the Public Defender’s Ofce of the 20th Judicial Circuit. “Those lawyers are looking to see what impact, if any, this might have had on their cases,” Public Defender Kathy Smith said Monday. “It’s hard to tell at this point.” Smith didn’t want to comment further because of Friday’s upcoming hearing involving Oonk. The SAO claims none of its prosecutors watched the Oonk video before notifying the PDO and, therefore, have not been made prejudiced.Lawyers already wary of jail callsLast fall, local attorney Richard Ruhl was in a courtroom for a hearing when he learned prosecutors had obtained a phone conversation between one of his jailed clients and someone with his law rm. “It was brought into court,” Ruhl said. “I couldn’t believe it.” It didn’t hinder the case, and Ruhl didn’t make a fuss. But, it was enough to make the lawyer wary about communicating with inmates at the Charlotte County Jail. “My associates and I don’t do any thing over the phone or by video chat,” said Ruhl, the county’s representative to the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. “We don’t trust it. And it’s a shame, because if we could just talk on the phone, it would take pressure off the jail staff.” Another area attorney, Scott Weinberg, agrees. “If I really need to discuss a case, I’ll go to the jail to talk to my client,” he said. “But, it takes so long for them to get your clients to you. It might be 45 minutes.” Attorneys can talk to jailed clients face-to-face in a private pod, over the phone, or through video chat — either on-site at the jail, or remotely using a computer or special terminal. Some lawyers only prefer to work face-toface because of privileged conversations being recorded with the other methods. In 2007, as another example, area attorney Mike Powell found out Ken Hill, a deputy rst class working in the Charlotte County Jail at the time, was listening in on phone calls between him and one of his clients. Hill was involved in two cases against the defendant and admitted he was trying to gain information to use as evidence, according to a CCSO internal investigation report. Hill was reassigned from his post at the jail, and is currently a community policing ofcer. “Since then, I’m more careful; sometimes I avoid talking about facts of a case (over the phone) for that reason,” Powell said. “I’ve never fully trusted it, but you have to assume the Sheriff’s Ofce is doing things right. I thought they had corrected the problem.” Sheriff’s spokeswoman Debbie Bowe said she doesn’t know of any internal investigations about privileged phone calls being done since then.Now what?In its report about the video recordings, the Sheriff’s Ofce noted, “The vendor of the visitation recording system made upgrades and modications to the recording system which, unknown to the Sheriff’s Ofce, adversely effected pre-existing restrictions and safeguards that were in place to prevent the recordings of attorney-client conversations,” so, “The evidence does not indicate actions by the members of the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Ofce were intentional in nature.” No CCSO employees were punished. The video chat service provider — Alabama-based Montgomery Technology, Inc. — said, immediately after learning of issues, it provided a software patch to the Sheriff’s Ofce so the recording problem could be resolved. A representative from MTI — which boasts itself as “the leading manufacturer of security control, video visitation, access control and jail management systems for detention facilities” — said the problem the Charlotte County Jail had is not a com mon one, since that jail has more-advanced features than other facilities. “The biggest problem I have is this nonchalant attitude,” said Kirshy, a former prosecutor and Charlotte County Bar Association president who started his own law rm in 1998. “I still don’t think people realize how big of a deal this is.” Kirshy said he’ll take a look at his own cases that involved his jailed clients. After reading Oonk’s motion for disqualication, one of Kirshy’s biggest questions is: How did the video le get labeled? “Toby’s name is on it,” Kirshy said. “That doesn’t happen by accident. Anyone with the Sheriff’s Ofce should know who the chief (assistant) public defender is.” Contacted by the Sun , David Rothman, chair of the Criminal Law Section of The Florida Bar, weighed in. “If there really was no harm, no foul, I think the problem should just be xed, and people should be educated how to not let it happen again,” Rothman said.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comCASEFROM PAGE 1THE JOHNSON CASEFeb.4 — Chief assistant public defender Toby Oonk, representing Dwayne Johnson, files a motion for disqualification, asking 20th Circuit Judge Donald Mason to disallow the Office of the State Attorney for the 20th Judicial Circuit from working the case because prosecutors received a video recording of a privileged conversation between Oonk and Johnson. According to the Florida Statutes section related to lawyer-client privilege, “A communication between lawyer and client is confidential if it is not intended to be disclosed to third persons.” Oonk claims the interception of communications is “a fundamental denial of due process,” and, “Given the posture of the case, the defendant is being placed in the untenable position of having to choose between the assertion of one right — speedy trial — versus the rights to due process, respect for his right to privacy, his right to counsel, and his right to a fair and impartial jury trial of this cause.” Feb.9 — The SAO for the 20th Judicial Circuit files a motion claiming, “The defendant has not alleged actual prejudice to support his request for disqualification” and, “No employee of the State Attorney’s Office listened to any portion of any communication between the defendant and his counsel.” Friday — A hearing on the matter is set for 9a.m. Four hours has been allotted. March23 — Johnson’s trial is supposed to start. The 32-year-old Port Charlotte man is charged with second-degree murder with a firearm. Charlotte County Public Schools ranked ninth in the state in a new survey from “It’s a comprehensive assessment that covers more than just an FCAT test,” said school district spokesman Michael Riley. “It ranked each school district on academics, teacher quality, health and safety resources in the community, facilities, the arts and sports.” The new ranking is a departure from the district’s ranking of 48th out of 67 districts in the state this past school year based on data from the Florida Department of Education. The Florida DOE looked at FCAT scores and other factors for high schools such as graduation rates. Sarasota County ranked second in the state, according to Niche. “We’re pleased that the Sarasota County School District placed high in the state rankings and in the rankings, and that a number of our schools also are rated among the state’s best,” said Sarasota district spokesman Scott Ferguson. “We are fortunate to live in a community that values and supports its public schools.” As part of the survey, CCPS scored a B+ on academics alone, compared to a C grade on state assessments. Ryan Bell, a data analyst with Niche, explained that the state assessments only counted for 25 percent of the academic ranking, with another factor being the Top College Score, which is based on what colleges local students are inter ested in attending. Some other factors were SAT/ ACT scores, advanced placement enrollment, graduation rates and survey responses. Nationally, the tech company from Pennsylvania ranked more than 8,700 school districts, according to its website, based on 4.6 million opinions from 280,000 parents and students. In Charlotte County alone, there were 730 reviews that were “mostly positive,” the site stated. “We’ve got room for improvement, and I think we’re on the road to making those improvements,” said School Board Chairman Lee Swift, “but we’re not anywhere near as bad as a year’s worth of test scores have painted us to be.” Swift said one problem with state rankings is the DOE would make the FCAT harder for high school students because too many schools were getting A grades. For example, Charlotte High School, Port Charlotte High School, and Lemon Bay High School would each have received an A instead of a B based on previous years’ standards. Bryan Bouton, president of the Charlotte Florida Education Association, agrees the district is more than just its test scores, but he said it will take more than a survey to get back near the top. “I’m not going to make myself feel good by saying a survey will x every thing,” he said. “I feel good because I come in here and give 100 percent for my kids every day.” Niche was founded in 2002, as CollegeProwler. com, by Carnegie Mellon University students. The tech company now also surveys K-12 public schools.

The Sun /Tuesday, February 17, 2015 C Our Town Page 9 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. Four school board members from across the state, saying they oppose the lawsuit of the state’s tax credit scholarship program, have started a new coalition as an alternative to the longstanding, and publicly funded, Florida School Boards Association. But the coalition is already drawing critics from Charlotte and Sarasota counties. The Florida Coalition of School Board Members, created by Bridget Ziegler from Sarasota County, Jeff Bergosh from Escambia County, Shawn Frost from Indian River County and Erika Donalds from Collier County, touts itself as a member-funded organization that aims to be more “cost-effective and student-focused,” according to the founding members in a conference call with the media Monday. “This is not an effort to replace the FSBA but to be used as an alter native option,” Ziegler said. “For (people) to use as a resource.” According to the FSBA website, the nonprofit organization represents all school board members in Florida, and has since it was founded in 1930. Donalds said the new coalition is an “expansion of choices” for school board members, parents and students. She said it will have a student-focused perspective, be fiscally responsible and look to partner with policymakers in Tallahassee. “FSBA has lost touch with taxpayers and how they are using their dollars,” Donalds said. Members said they oppose the stance of the FSBA to eradicate the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program, which provides an income-tax credit to corporations that contribute funds to scholarship organizations that financially help students from families with limited resources, according to the Florida Department of Education. The voucher program currently serves about 69,000 lowto middle-income students in the state. Bergosh, who will head the coalition, said it will be member-funded initially with a $99 annual member fee. From now until March 15, he said members can sign up for a $49 annual “founding” membership. Bergosh said even if every school board member in the state signed up, funds would still be insufficient to cover the costs of the coalition. He said there will be “creative ways” to fund the coalition, but the current members aren’t prepared to make that announcement yet. Currently, the coalition has only the four founding members, but Bergosh said he expects they will have about 40 to 50 board members join “out of the gate.” “There is a lot of pent-up demand for what we are bringing to the table,” Bergosh said. “Let the parents have a voice.” All four described the current FSBA as not cost-effective in providing training for school board members and being “respectful” of board member’s time and taxpayer dollars. Lee Swift, 20-year Charlotte County School Board member (currently chair) and former president of the FSBA in 2012-13, said he doesn’t know how they can be “experts on things” when three of the founding members, Ziegler, Frost and Donalds, were only recently elected in 2014. Bergosh has been an Escambia County School Board member since 2006. Swift said it mostly has to do with the lawsuit of the state’s tax credit scholarship program. The Florida Education Association, the Florida School Boards Association and the state Parent Teacher Association are suing the state over the program because they said it puts taxpayer money into private and religious schools. “The role of the association (FSBA) is to be a checks and balances system,” Swift said. “We think that the law was unconstitutional.” Swift said he also didn’t see how the coalition could self-fund itself if members are only charged $50 to $99 per year. He said if all 350 school board members in the state joined, then that would still only give the coalition anywhere between $17,500 to about $35,000 annually. “I don’t know what you get for that,” Swift said. “I don’t know how they are going to get to the lofty goals they have set for themselves.” Andrea Messina, director of board development for FSBA and former Charlotte County School Board member, said it costs the association about $300,000 annually to provide training to its members. Messina said the association has a board development committee that she takes direction from, and a member of any district can become part of the committee if they sign up. She said none of the four members of the newly formed coalition has been a member of the FSBA’s board development committee. “What we offer as an organization is what our members tell us they want,” Messina said. According to her, money for training originates from membership dues — based on the size of a school district — scholarship funding and other resources. Swift said Charlotte County pays about $14,000 to the FSBA based on its student population and size. Caroline Zucker, Sarasota County School Board member for 16 years and currently presidentelect for the FSBA, said Sarasota County pays roughly $18,000 per year because they have more students. Zucker said the FSBA has been around for decades, and she is not sure how a couple of recently elected officials could see the larger scope of the association. She does not think it will cause issues for the Sarasota School Board “My focus will always be on the children,” Zucker said. “I’ve been doing this long enough to not let the politics interfere with what I’m doing.” Email: ashirk@sun-herald.comSchool board coalition touts taxpayer focusBy ALLISON SHIRKSTAFF WRITER MESSINA ZUCKER SWIFT ZIELGERApply for 2015 property exemptionsThe Charlotte County Property Appraiser now is accepting 2015 exemption applications.

Our Town Page 10 C The Sun /Tuesday, February 17, 2015 No thanks to administrationEditor: Recently, I bought gas for $2.25. Amazing! Obviously, it won’t last forever, but it feels good. Why, because of American free enterprise? The chance to make a prot drives the oil industry to produce more product and more product on the market lowers the price, simple economics, supply and demand. The present administration is trying to take credit for it, just the opposite, in spite of the all the attempts to stop the oil companies they have brought more product to the table. In 2008, Obama’s energy secretary, Steve Chu, said American gas prices should be the same as Europe’s $9-10 a gallon. They recently tried to take 8 12 million acres off the table for exploration, but Congress stopped them. The EPA now wants to put limits on methane emissions at drill sites which everyone agrees the industry already has in place, but now will require “compliance” — translation, higher production cost and guess what — higher gas prices. Anything to drive cost up. But we have different rules for the “green” energy producers. Bright Source energy’s solar facility in the Mojave Desert is credited with killing 28,000 birds a year and this number is by an environmental group, Center for Biological Diversity. In December 2014, the Interior Department exempted wind farms from killing bald and golden eagles for 30 years so it’s wind and solar at whatever cost. So now, how long do you think gas prices will stay down thanks to the administration?Edward Montegari Rotonda WestBring ‘castles’ up to codeEditor: Recently, I sent emails to all county commissioners regarding the blighted neighborhood in South Punta Gorda Heights south of Taylor Road and north of Tuckers Grade on the east side of U.S. 41. I received a response from only one, thanks to Mr. Constance. I attached numerous pictures of some of the dwellings that literally look like junk yards. Many of them have old tires, junk cars, furniture scattered over their yards with junk and homes in much disrepair. There has to be a minimum code the owners have to adhere to. If not, there should be one. This would never be allowed in PGI, BSI, BS Meadows or the like, so why is it allowed in this neighborhood? It is a shame the folks who maintain and take pride in their homes have to be subjected to neighbors whose homes look like a pigstys. Maybe they should get a petition signed and present it to the commissioners. Charlotte County really needs to go through this neighborhood and make the owners clean up and place nes on the dwelling until it is done. I encourage the commissioners to go take a look and see for themselves how horrendous the neighborhood looks. It would be hard to sell or rent to anyone except another junk collector. They say “a man’s home is his castle.” Well, if these homes looked like a castle there would be no need for this letter.Gregory Morrisette Punta GordaBucs’ rst pick: Not another HeismanEditor: If I had to guess, I would say I probably watched fewer than 10 NFL football games in the 2014 season, so it’s fair to say I’m not a big fan and not a student of the game but I do pay a little attention to the trends. Having lived in Southwest Florida less than two years I have not been nor do I plan to become a Tamp Bay Bucs supporter. When I saw today’s Sports section top story about the Bucs quarterback and how the Bucs are on the clock to draft either the 2013 or the 2014 Heisman winner, it makes me wonder why, time and again, NFL coaches and owners insist on making such poor draft choices. A quick check of the status of recent Heisman-winning quarterbacks shows that burning a draft pick on any one of them is a bad idea. Mariota and Winston are untested. Johnny Manziel — Johnny Who? RG III — does he still play? Cam Newton is respectable but unpredictable. Tim Tebow isn’t even in football anymore. He’ll be at the Okeechobee rodeo this weekend fundraising for his Philippine hospital project. Then I look at the list of recent NFL Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks: Brady, Russell, Flacco, Manning, Rogers, Brees, Rothlisberger, the other Manning. Not a Heisman winner in the bunch. Let’s hope that Lovie and the Bucs staff do something unpredictable (i.e. smart) and pick someone who can actually help the team. Wouldn’t that be refreshing?Bruce Koran Port CharlotteNews reporting is slanted greenEditor: Recently, I had a long dialogue with the Sun’s publisher about reporting news in a manner whereby readers obtain all sides of issues. Two news stories were discussed where I pointed out the Sun was deliberately hiding major aspects of these stories, seemingly because of conicts with the Sun’s strong “green” oriented ideology. Example: 70 percent of Charlotte voters recently approved Florida Constitutional Amendment One. A “dark side” of such issue exists, which was not disclosed to Sun readers: Amendment One, resultant governmental land-buying binge could soon require substantial increases in ad valorem taxation rates on Charlotte taxpayers. Anyone wanting full details should go to: Click on “newsletters,” click on January 2015 newsletter, scroll down until you see the letter sent to many state politicians. Example: Sun’s ideology caused no coverage of the huge story reported Feb. 7 by UK Telegraph (plus many other me dia sources) disclosing several key federal institutions/departments have once again been caught fraudulently tampering with climate temperature data collected throughout the globe. Global trend line surface temperatures have been signicant ly increased so global warming advocates have the platform they need to push economy/ jobs destroying solutions for a problem the actual data shows does not exist. Contrariwise, the Sun printed an AP article, “Time to look at cooling the planet,” which covered a hare-brained scheme to inject sulfur pollution into Earth’s atmosphere to block heat emitting from our galaxy’s sun. Sun subscribers deserve fair, informative, non-slanted news reporting. Editors’ ideological bent should be conned to the “View” column.William Bigelow Port CharlotteWhat’s real story on drilling, pipeline?Editor: Today’s paper has two articles regarding oil production that your editorial writer should have connected. One article is the editorial about offshore drilling on the Atlantic coast being promoted by the Obama administration. The other is the article about the Keystone pipeline approval by the House and Senate that Obama has vowed to veto. What is going on here? Horse trading, truculence, imperiousness or incompetence? And on whose part?Robert Ponzetti Port CharlotteHats o to the Cultural CenterEditor: This is my second year as a winter resident; and as such I have become increasingly involved with the wide variety of services, activities, opportunities and outstanding entertainment offered by this fabulous facility. The entire staff (volunteers included), instructors, greeters, maintenance and theater personnel embrace each individual passing through their doors with warmth, respect, helpfulness, and the extension of friendship. In joining the tness salon I have found the equipment, professionalism, management and availability of personalized training to be of the highest caliber — thus worthy of considerable praise. Way to go, Ted Robedee. Opportunities to play different games provide quality social interaction and the sharing of skills and knowledge. The Happy Travelers of Charlotte County located in the Cultural Center is a real plus, offering both one-day and overnight trips with the agendas so well-planned that all one has to do is make a reservation, show up and enjoy. I am certain that there are many other opportunities for learning and enjoyment that I have omitted that also are deserving of compliment. In closing, let me just say that the Cultural Center has a super-friendly atmosphere throughout and has far exceeded my expectations. With every visit I always nd myself eager to return.Randi Wills Punta Gorda OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

And the person with her hand on the joystick was Amanda Carr. The 24-year-old president of Charlotte BMX pulled off a goal she set when she took over the struggling organization ve years ago, winning a bid to host one of 34 USA BMX national events. As the dust was settling on a frantic weekend featuring hundreds of riders ranging from 3 to 63, she was still looking ahead. “Let’s do another one,” she told Sun Correspondent Dawn Klemish Sunday during a break from her host duties. Charlotte BMX sees lots of busy days and has been a mainstay on the Florida BMX circuit for years, but the Sunshine State Nationals was on another level. Equipment and repair trailers, sponsor tents, spectator bleachers and food and gear vendors created a midway of activity yards from the sounds of racing: squealing tires, rattling frames, shouting parents. A PA announcer called the action over loudspeakers as riders decked out in NASCARlike uniforms led into lines as they waited for their “motos” to begin atop of the starting hill. Before one race even nished, another one started in a relentless procession of riders. Throughout the weekend yellow-shirted volunteers, dozens of them, parked cars, collected fees, shepherded riders through registration, monitored the track and tended to fallen racers. Charlotte Fire/ EMS personnel were on hand to tend to scrapes, sprains and at least one broken bone. Acres of park facilities adjacent to the Carmalita Avenue track were taken over for parking and camping. Spectators perched atop RVs overlooking the track to get bird’s-eye views. The skatepark next to the BMX track may have had its busiest day ever, as many riders ditched their bikes for skateboards and scooters between races. Riders traveled hundreds of miles — from California to Curacao — to compete. The economic impact of having more than 2,000 riders, family, ofcials, sponsors and vendors in town for the three-day event was projected to exceed $1 million. The Charlotte Harbor Visitor and Convention Bureau, which coordinated with Charlotte BMX on the event bid, hotel arrangements and sponsorships, will tally hotel room nights and entry numbers to calculate the actual total. We’re not privy to USA BMX’s deliberations about awarding future nationals to Charlotte BMX, and our view is biased by our appreciation for our neighbors’ efforts, but we can’t help but think there will be more Sunshine State Nationals coming to Charlotte County in the near future. The venue was well-received by riders, ofcials publicly lauded the work of Carr and the organizing committee and the success of the event should reinforce the wisdom of continued county investment in upgrades to keep the facility competitive with other venues. Congratulations to Carr and her volunteer team on staging a professional-level event. Even as she pursues her dream of competing in the 2016 Olympics for her mother’s native Thailand, Carr successfully fullled another dream of making Charlotte BMX a nationals host. Let’s do another one. C//IORLa7 COUNTY P/BLfC SCHOOLS m.4&e TOP TEN LIST'Ore BESTSCHOOL DISTRICTS IN FLORIDAPte` 1 ` _ --_A l-R O B B R T E S -rw E7 suN is


The Sun /Tuesday, February 17, 2015 C Our Town Page 11 Do Republicans have a realistic chance to win the next presidential election? Some analysts suggest the answer is no. They argue that there is a 240-elector al-vote “blue wall” of 18 states and D.C. that have gone Democratic in the last six presidential elections. A Democratic nominee needs only 30 more electoral votes to win the presidency, they note accurately. A Republican nominee, they suggest, has little chance of breaking through the blue wall. He (or she) would have to win 270 of the 298 other electoral votes. Democrats do have an advantage in the electoral vote, because heavily Democratic clusters clinch about 170 electoral votes for them, while Republicans have a lock on only about 105. But the blue wall theory, like all political rules of thumb, is true only till it’s not. And this one could easily prove inoperative in a competitive 2016 race. To see why, go back and put yourself in the shoes of a Democratic strategist following the 2004 presidential race. Assume that a stronger 2008 Democratic nominee will win all of John Kerry’s 252 electoral votes (which happened). Then take a look at the states in which Kerry won 43 percent or more of the popular vote. The four states in which Kerry won 48 percent or more — Iowa, New Mexico, Ohio, Nevada — were obvious targets, seriously contested in three or four of the previous four elections. Add Florida (47 percent for Kerry and obviously closely contested) and you have 318 electoral votes easily accessible in a good Democratic year. What states should you target beyond that? It depends on who your nominee is. If it’s Hillary Clinton, you might look at Missouri, Arkansas, Arizona, Tennessee and West Virginia. Bill Clinton won Arizona once and the other four twice, and Hillary Clinton won all but Missouri in the 2008 primaries. These states’ 43 electoral votes raise the potential win to 361. If your nominee is Barack Obama, your targets are different. You might look at Colorado, Virginia and North Carolina, plus Missouri. All but Colorado have large minority populations, and all but Missouri have large blocs of upscale whites — groups among which Obama demonstrated strong appeal in 2008 primaries. These states had 48 elec toral votes in 2008. Obama won all but Missouri’s 11 and made up for that by winning 11 in Indiana, a 39 percent Kerry state. The lesson here is that in a favorable opinion climate, a party can successfully target previously unwinnable states containing voting blocs that can be moved or just mobilized. It helps greatly if, like Obama, they increase their turnout in primaries. Likewise, a Republican strategist looking ahead to 2016 has 12 states where Mitt Romney won 43 to 49 percent of the vote in 2012. Add some signicant share of their 146 electoral votes to the 206 Romney won, and you get well above the 270 majority. At the top of the list are perennial targets Florida and Ohio. Just below, at 47 percent in favor of Romney, are Virginia and — part of the supposedly immoveable blue wall — Pennsylvania. Republicans nearly beat a popular Democratic senator in Virginia last year and have been making steady gains in blue-collar Western Pennsylvania. Those four states added to Romney’s would give Republicans 286 electoral votes — George W. Bush’s winning total in 2004. What states could Republicans target beyond that? A nominee with Midwestern appeal might go after Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota (42 electoral votes). One with Hispanic appeal could target Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico (20 electoral votes). One with appeal to upscale whites could target Colorado, New Hampshire and Minnesota (23 electoral votes). One with working-class appeal might choose Iowa, Wisconsin and Michigan (32 electoral votes). Critics might ask whether a 2016 Republican nominee can count on all the Romney states. Certainly not, if the party is as unpopular as it was in 2008. And North Carolina, a 48 percent Obama state, certainly looks like a realistic Democratic target in a close race. But Obama got no more than 45 percent in other Romney states. Of the six where he got 44 or 45 percent, Democrats have had little success lately, even when running candidates better adapted to the local terrain than Hillary Clinton would be. None looks like a good Democratic target. Republicans looking to 2016 can learn from Democrats’ 2008 success. Target wisely, and think of states you haven’t carried in years. And use the primaries to expand potentially favorable blocs. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner. Readers can reach him via www. Democrats’ ‘blue wall’ not impregnable to GOP Michael Barone The rapidity of progress by the gay rights movement — from Stonewall to likely Supreme Court vindication of gay marriage in a historical blink — is causing a series of social and legal tensions. It has left some recently evolved politicians looking cynical (see David Axelrod’s account of President Obama’s convenient malleability on marriage). It has left some conservative politicians appearing dgety and anxious to change the subject. It has turned the taking of wedding photos and the baking of wedding cakes into unexpected cultural controversies. Is there a constitutional right to the baker of your choice? The adjustments have been particularly rocky in higher education, among institutions called to serious ethical reection and capable of serious moral preening. Some universities have begun denying recognition to student groups that use conservative religious beliefs on sexuality (and other issues) as a criterion in choosing ofcers. A prominent evangelical institution of higher learning, Gordon College, has been put on notice by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges that it may lose its accreditation over a student behavior code that proscribes “homosexual practice” (along with all premarital sex). The stigmatization of evangelical colleges that hold traditional views on sexuality involves a painful psychological adjustment on the part of the stigmatized. The school I attended, Wheaton College, was founded in 1860 by a rambunctiously eccentric abolitionist dedicated to educating African-Americans and women at a time when that caused controversy. Many evangelical institutions with strong traditions of social justice are understandably offended when others portray them as benighted. The unfolding victory for gay rights has set up a national debate about the meaning of pluralism. In some forms of modern liberalism, only the individual and the state are, in any meaningful sense, real — and one of the primary purposes of the public authority is to enforce the rights of individuals against oppressive social institutions. But there is an opposing view: that religious freedom is not merely the individual right to believe but also the right to associate with fellow believers. A community, in this view, is enriched by a proliferation of communities offering differing views of the good life (within the broad boundaries of public health and safety). And this requires the protection of institutional religious freedom. One of the nation’s most inuential educators, David Coleman, the president of the College Board, has engaged this debate in a manner designed to transcend it. In 2013, Coleman went on a scholarly project to Wheaton’s Wade Center, which houses C.S. Lewis’ papers. His encounter with Wheaton staff and professors set off a series of public reections, in speeches and articles, on the distinctive contributions of religious colleges. The point, he told me, is not “merely their right to exist.” It is their “animating values that are precious to higher education, and inescapably so.” The rst he describes as “productive solitude,” which is both characteristic of the spiritual life and “important for academic growth.” The second he calls the “reverent reading” of shared texts, which allows “different minds to act on the same problems.” Many modern academic settings, in his view, “now don’t share a single text” studied across disciplines. And this is a problem, because learn ing “relates to powerful, haunting language held in common.” The third comparative advantage of religious education, according to Coleman, is the determination to be a “safe haven for body and spirit.” Modern student life often involves “abuse of alcohol” and “premature, reckless sexual encounters.” Noting Dartmouth’s recent campus ban on hard liquor, Coleman offered: “Maybe it is time to construct stronger norms.” None of this settles the difcult issues surrounding individual and institu tional religious rights. And Coleman is careful to avoid weighing in on specic debates. But he is determined to point out the virtues of institutional diversity in higher education — nding contributions where others only nd controversy. This was once known as being liberal-minded. In the midst of social change on gay rights — what he describes as a -year deliberative process” — Coleman argues for a “patient pluralism.” “You may disagree with members of the community for a while,” he told me. But you “do not banish them from the community.” And such patience, he said, is an expression of “condence in your own values.” This deliberation is taking place even within evangelicalism, as some moral traditionalists wrestle with the genetic component of same-sex attraction and see the virtues of committed gay relationships. But such reection is inhibited by intimidation. A genuine dialogue requires a principled pluralism. Michael Gerson is a Washington Post columnist.

Rick Scott was to announce Monday during a visit to Tampa International Airport that more than 97 million people visited the state last year according to estimates prepared by Visit Florida, the state’s tourism mar keting arm. That’s the fourth year in a row that the state has had a record number of tourists come to the state. Most of the visitors were from the United States, but millions also came from overseas and from Canada. “Florida’s natural beauty, pristine beaches and exciting attractions continue to bring countless visitors to our state and provide valuable jobs for our families,” said Scott in a statement. Despite the record year of 97.3 million tourists, Florida fell a little bit short of reaching Scott’s goal of having 100 million tourists visit in 2014. Nearly 94 million people visited the state the previous year.

The airstrikes bring Egypt overtly into Libya’s turmoil, a reection of Cairo’s increasing alarm. Egypt now faces threats on two fronts — a growing stronghold of radicals on its western border and a militant insurgency of Islamic State allies on its eastern ank in the Sinai Peninsula — as well as its own internal challenges. Islamic State group weapons caches and training camps were targeted “to avenge the bloodshed and to seek retribution from the killers,” a military statement said. “Let those far and near know that Egyptians have a shield to protect and safeguard the security of the country and a sword that cuts off terrorism.” The announcement on state radio Egypt strikes ISIS in LibyaBy HAMZA HENDAWI and MAGGIE MICHAELASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERSLIBYA | 4 FRANKFORT, Ky. — Snow swirled sideways in Kentucky and the typically bustling state capital of Frankfort came to a frozen halt Monday as a storm walloped parts of the South, which unlike the Northeast, had been mostly spared this winter. That all changed with a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain across the region, making roads treacherous and knocking out power to thousands of people. Luckily, the storm arrived on a holiday, Presidents Day, when many schools and businesses were already closed and the morning commute was not as busy. Ofcials also made certain roads were prepared this year after Southern cities — most notably Atlanta — were caught off guard a year ago when a winter storm stranded thousands of people on interstates overnight. Raleigh suffered a similar fate last year. Still, some weren’t quite ready for the winter blast. RL Doss said he had already used his 1987 GMC Suburban — which can haul up to three-quarters of a ton with ropes and chains — to rescue several people and their cars on the hills surrounding Frankfort. Cars were shtailing and sliding off the slick roads. “I look at it this way. Everybody is trying to get out, to get their last bit of food and stuff, getting home from work and people leaving for work and stuff, and it happens,” he said, shivering in a pair of tan overalls pulled over a hooded sweatshirt. Glancing at his truck, the burgundy behemoth, he said: “I like to see what the truck can do and what it can’t do. I push it to its limits.” In the Northeast, which has been slammed by seemingly endless snow, the white stuff stopped falling but the temperatures were bitterly cold.

Still, the perky 11-year-old worries. During a recent practice exam at her school in Ohio, she couldn’t even log on. “It wouldn’t let me,” she said. “It kept saying it wasn’t right, and it just kept loading the whole time.” Her state on Tuesday will be the rst to administer one of two tests in English language arts and math based on the Common Core standards developed by two separate groups of states. By the end of the school year, about 12 million children in 29 states and the District of Columbia will take them, using computers or electronic tablets. The exams are expected to be more difcult than the traditional spring standardized state exams they replace. In some states, they’ll require hours of additional testing time because students will have to do more than just ll in the bubble.

The 17-year-old fatally shot himself while playing the game inside an apartment in Torrance just after midnight, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The potentially lethal game is typically played by putting a single bullet into a revolver, spinning the cylinder and then placing the muzzle of the gun against one’s temple. The teen’s cousins had pleaded with the teen to put down the gun and stop playing, homicide Sgt. Scott Hoglund told KTBC-TV Channel 5. But he refused.Louis Jourdan, Frenchman who starred in ‘Gigi,’ dies at 93LOS ANGELES (AP) — Louis Jourdan, the dashingly handsome Frenchman who starred in “Gigi,” “Can-Can,” “Three Coins in the Fountain” and other American movies, has died. He was 93. Jourdan’s biographer, Olivier Minne, says the actor died Saturday at his home in Beverly Hills, likely of natural causes. Succeeding Charles Boyer as Hollywood’s favor ite French lover, Jourdan ro manced Joan Fontaine, Jennifer Jones, Grace Kelly and Shirley MacLaine in lms during the late 1940s and throughout the 1950s. His lm career reached a peak in 1957 with the musical, “Gigi,” playing the Parisian seeking young Gigi as a mistress. The lm won nine Academy Awards, including best picture. Jourdan’s striking good looks made him subject to the Hollywood habit of typecasting. However, he also showed that he could play a villain in “Julie” and “Octopussy.”UMass bans Iranians from some programsAMHERST, Mass.

Dear Mr. Berko: Now that the economy has recovered, when will certicate of deposit rates come back to their normal 4 or 5 percent? What do you think about the European stock market and interest rates? Are there any attractive European investments you’d recommend? I have $17,500 to invest, and I can afford to take more-than-average risks. — HS, Waterloo, Iowa Dear HS: I don’t trust the Obama administration’s numbers, because there are still huge pockets of pain. Why are so many Americans having trouble keeping current with their monthly auto payments, credit card bills and home mortgages? And why do so many Americans feel they were better off eight years ago than today? It’s quite possible that low interest rates are the new normal. No matter how you slice the bologna, nearly zero interest rates are the result of weak demand. And the reluctance among Federal Reserve ofcials to raise rates suggests that most of them believe that the economy still faces serious growth challenges. The Fed is mindful that gross domestic product growth in the past few years has been nanced by borrowed money, record federal debt, record corporate debt and record consumer debt. Today’s consumer can buy a car and nance it over eight years, purchase a home with 3 percent to zero money down and buy a houseful of new furniture with no payments till 2016. Because of the $4.5 trillion quantitative easing infusion and ultra-low interest rates to level the road, our economy wobbles forward on stilts and will lose its balance if it steps in a pothole. We’ve recognized too late that an economy dependent on low interest rates is like a person who’s hooked on cocaine; withdrawal is seldom successful. Despite the recent pickup in activity, the economy still faces unmet challenges to restore long-term growth. And despite the decrease in the jobless rate, the real unemployment number is 12.6 percent. This 12.6 percent may explain the administration’s reluctance in disclosing its U-6 report, which truthfully explains the full employment picture by including workers “marginally attached to the labor force” and those “employed part time for economic reasons.” This makes responsible timing of the Fed’s interest rate decisions almost impossible. If the Fed increases rates too soon, the economy may collapse because most consumers don’t have the income or buying power to maintain the status quo. The talk is that some Fed governors are keen to keep rates low, believing an increase would hurt consumers and put the economy in a tailspin. Some observers suggest that the Fed won’t raise rates this year. Also, rates in Europe will continue to remain low. And because the European Union is embarking on its rst quantitative easing, I think Italy’s, Germany’s, France’s and other EU nations’ markets will soar this year and next. Last January, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi disclosed his QE plan to purchase about $1.3 trillion of publicand private-sector assets in the coming 18 months. Commencing this March, the Eurosystem will purchase, in the secondary market, euro-denominated investment-grade securities issued by eurozone governments, agencies and institutions. This Fed-style QE in Europe will massively increase the money supply, which Draghi hopes will be inationary. Though the U.S.’ $4.5 trillion QE wasn’t inationary (a discussion for another time), the trillions of dollars of loose cash sloshing in U.S. bank accounts went directly into our stock market, running the Dow Jones industrial average to 18,000, from 11,000 in 2009. I expect that a similar phenomenon will occur in the EU markets. Draghi’s ECB will purchase assets of each eurozone country proportional to its size. The stock markets — even in small eurozone countries, such as Malta, Slovenia, Latvia, Estonia and Slovakia — may take off like racing greyhounds. And the bourses of countries with larger economies — such as Germany, France and Italy — will have plenty of room to zoom. The most effective way for you to invest in those markets is via single-country closedend funds. So consider The New Germany Fund (GF-$14.23), yielding 5.5 percent, the iShares MSCI Italy Capped ETF (EWI-$13.69), yielding 2.4 percent, and the iShares MSCI France ETF (EWQ$25.31), which yields 3.35 percent. They should do very well. Email Malcolm Berko at interest rates and foreign markets Malcolm Berko NEW YORK (AP) — True to his breed, Matisse the Portuguese water dog likes to play in the koi sh pond. He enjoys going on long bicycle runs, chewing Benny Bully’s liver treats and falling asleep on his back. Pretty standard stuff for a lot of pooches. Oh, he also got a holiday card from the White House. So perhaps it was only tting Monday that when the Westminster Kennel Club dog show started on Presidents Day, the Portie who’s a cousin to Obama family pet Sunny was the early favorite. “He’s a real dog. He likes to play, he likes to get dirty,” co-owner Milan Lint said. “He just cleans up really well.” At 3 years old, Matisse indeed has cleaned up. This is the 400th event he’s entered — he’s won best in show 238 times, among the most in canine history. “Spectacular dog,” praised popular Westminster television host David Frei. On a frigid day in New York, Matisse got to rest as many of the 2,711 dogs in 192 breeds and varieties stepped into the judging ring at Piers 92 and 94, the exhibition space stretching into the icy Hudson River. The hound, toy, nonsporting and herding group winners were to be picked Monday night at Madison Square Garden. Matisse is in the working group, which he’s won the last two years at Westminster. The sporting, working and terrier winners will be selected tonight, with retired California trial-court judge David Merriam choosing the best in show right before 11 p.m. If picked, Matisse would become the rst Portie to win America’s top dog show. Among the other prime contenders: Swagger the old English sheepdog nished second at Westminster in 2013 and Nathan the bloodhound won the recent National show that’s tape-delayed and televised on Thanksgiving Day. “At this point, we’re just focused on getting him to the ring healthy and happy,” Lint said. “The results are the results.” Matisse denitely knows his way around the ring. The nation’s top-winning show dog in 2014 likes to entertain his fans. He often gets into the “downward dog” yoga position, stretching his back, as he approaches the judge. He has that “hard to identify quality, that je ne sais quoi,” Lint said. Lint also was one of the breeders for Sunny, who in 2013 joined another Portie named Bo as a pet for President Barack Obama and his family. Sunny and Matisse have never met. Not yet, anyway. But who knows? A few months after Uno the beagle won Westminster in 2008, he visited President George W. Bush at the White House. With a black, curly coat and a spirited temper ament, Matisse mirrors the standards for an ideal Portuguese water dog. His hair is done in a traditional lion clip for the breed, with the muzzle and hindquarters trimmed close. Officially, he’s GCh — grand champion, in dog parlance — Claircreek Impression De Mattise. Co-owner Donna Gottdenker, an art lover, named him for famed French artist Henri Matisse. Peggy Helming is the third co-owner, having co-owned 2004 Westminster winner Josh the Newfoundland.Portuguese water dog is the pooch to watch at Westminster AP FILE PHOTOThis Feb. 11, 2014, photo shows Matisse, a Portuguese water dog, competing in the working group during the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York.NEW YORK (AP) — Singer-songwriter Lesley Gore, who topped the charts in 1963 with her epic song of teenage angst, “It’s My Party,” and followed it up with the hits “Judy’s Turn to Cry,” and the feminist anthem “You Don’t Own Me,” died Monday. She was 68. Gore died of cancer at New York University Langone Medical Center in Manhattan, according to her partner of 33 years, Lois Sasson. “She was a wonderful human being — caring, giving, a great feminist, great woman, great human being, great humanitarian,” Sasson, a jewelry designer, told The Associated Press. Brooklyn-born and New Jersey-raised, Gore was discovered by Quincy Jones as a teenager and signed to Mercury Records. She graduated from Sarah Lawrence College with a degree in English/ American literature. Gore’s other hits include “She’s A Fool,” “Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows,” “That’s the Way Boys Are” and “Maybe I Know.” She co-wrote with her brother, Michael, the Academy Award-nominated “Out Here On My Own” from the lm “Fame.” She also played Catwoman’s sidekick in the cult TV comedy “Batman.” In the 1990s, Gore co-wrote “My Secret Love” for Allison Anders’ lm “Grace of My Heart,” released in 1996. A couple of years later, she appeared in “Smokey Joe’s Cafe” on Broadway. Gore had been working on a stage version of her life with playwright Mark Hampton when she died. In 2005, she released “Ever Since,” her rst album in 30 years, but was sure to revisit older hits in front of fans. “If I’ve learned anything in this business,” she told The New York Times that year, “how stupid would it be not to do ‘It’s My Party’ when people come to hear it?” She ofcially came out to the public when she hosted several episodes of the PBS series, “In The Life,” which dealt with gay and lesbian issues. In the last few years, she performed at Feinstein’s at the Loews Regency in New York and, along with Ronnie Spector and LaLa Brooks, headlined the “She’s Got the Power” concert outdoors at Lincoln Center in 2012.‘It’s My Party’ singer Lesley Gore dies GORE JOURDAN / [y1 t. i. it 1` , r1// :> ,,:


The Sun /Tuesday, February 17, 2015 WIRE Page 3 STATE NEWS LAND O’LAKES (Tampa Bay Times) — Sitting in a tiny conference room Thursday, Chris Jackson and Dustin Lester focused on a series of green-andwhite bar charts. Their task: Determine whether 22,500 computers — all talking at once to Florida’s testing website — would cripple the Pasco school district’s online operations. “I don’t know why you would want to watch this,” said Jackson, a district technology supervisor. “It’s not very interesting.” Maybe. But the “load test” plays a critical role in the run-up to the March 2 debut of untried, mostly computerized new tests in Florida. The work will help answer a key question as parents, educators and lawmakers raise dire concerns about the upcoming spring testing season: Will the schools be ready? Readiness, of course, is in the eye of the beholder. Florida education commissioner Pam Stewart has pointedly told lawmakers that school districts have said since 2011 they’re able to handle the demand and are prepared now. The latest load tests in Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco counties, among others, appear to back her up. Testing contractor American Institutes for Research conducted its own simulation in January, too. Again, no problems. But Sen. Bill Montford, who also runs the state su perintendents association, contends there’s more to the issue than Internet bandwidth and computer availability. “Quite frankly, it’s how the question is asked,” said Montford, a Tallahassee Democrat. “If I were a superintendent, I would be reluctant to cer tify my district as ready.” He questioned the load tests, suggesting the effort proves little and didn’t prevent servers from dropping schools midtest last year. He also decried that computer testing has made it difcult for schools to use the machines for lessons, which he said should be their prime function. Montford’s doubts prompted him to le a bill to let schools offer paper tests — something Stewart says the state does not support — until they certify their readiness for “successful implementation and deployment.” Senate Education Committee Chairman John Legg, a Trinity Republican, has put in another bill that would remove school consequences associated with the spring results if districts demonstrate specic problems administering the Florida Standards Assessments. “I am not operating under the premise that we’re going to have massive widespread problems,” Legg said. “I do expect isolated issues. Our current statutes don’t have a release valve to deal with those problems.” He said he wanted to be sure schools that have made changes to be ready are not penalized, while those that struggle to reach the goal are not hurt, either. “As of this point, we have not seen a Plan B developed by the commissioner,” Legg said of Stewart. “And, to put it bluntly, we don’t know what we don’t know when it comes to rolling this out.” Worst-case scenarios are circulating. They include disrupted classes, unprepared students and another credibility blow to the state’s school accountability system. “This continuous climate of never-ending testing, running children in and out of the few rooms with computers, all day, for eight weeks, creates a continuous disruption of instruction and maintains an aura of testing that permeates each member of the school family, including the teachers, students, and parents, that make it seem like everybody is testing for months,” Hillsborough testing director Sam Whitten wrote to colleagues.Will new testing work? | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATERed Sox truck arrives at JetBlue ParkFORT MYERS (NewsPress) — Spring training is nearly here as the Red Sox equipment truck arrives at “Fenway South” JetBlue Park in south Lee County.

A 16-year-old, collared female panther was recovered Friday in Big Cypress National Preserve, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission records. The cause of death is listed as unknown. The second panther was recovered just north of the Seminole Tribe’s Big Cypress reservation. Biologists have recovered eight carcasses this year, but one was so decomposed that the death is thought to have occurred in 2014.Construction on I-75 to cause closuresMIRAMAR (AP) — Motorists who travel on Interstate 75 in Broward County will nd some temporary closures this week as crews set beams for a new Miramar overpass. On Monday night, the southbound lanes will close at 11 p.m. and reopen at 6 a.m. Tuesday. The northbound lanes will close during the same hours on Tuesday night. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports drivers will be detoured onto the Miramar exit ramps to cross Miramar Parkway and then re-enter the interstate on the on-ramps. The new overpass will accommodate a wider I-75 underneath and more turn lanes. The work is part of a $536 million project to add tolled express lanes between Northwest 170th Street in Miami-Dade County and Interstate 595. Work is set to end in late 2018.Deputy arranges for new bike after SUV hits girlTAMPA (AP) — A Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputy arranged for a 12-year-old girl to get a new bicycle after a sports utility vehicle struck her and knocked her off her bike. The incident happened Sunday as Shylin Rodriguez was riding bikes with her mother near Tampa. The midsized SUV failed to stop at a red light while turning and hit the girl. She sustained minor injuries, but her bicycle was badly damaged. The SUV driver was cited with a trafc ticket. Sheriff’s ofcials provided the girl and her mother with new bike helmets. Corporal Doug White contacted a local Walmart store to purchase a new bike for the girl. Walmart donated the bike and White delivered it to the girl’s home later Sunday.2 men rescued after sailboat runs agroundFORT MYERS (AP) — Ofcials say two boaters were found several hours after being reported missing near Fort Myers. The U.S. Coast Guard found the men early Monday shortly after a friend reported them missing. She told authorities the men had not been heard from since leaving the Shell Point Marina on Sunday evening. The News-Press of Fort Myers reports the 20-foot sailboat ran aground near the marina early Monday. The men said the sailboat was purchased for renovation. It had no sails or motor and they were using a trolling motor to move. No safety equipment was on the boat. Petty ofcer Grant T. Lacy reminds boaters that even short trips are dangerous if they don’t have safety equipment that is required by law.Police: Man kills self after shooting girlfriendBOYNTON BEACH (AP) — Authorities say a Miami businessman who was trying to reconcile with his former girlfriend shot her before leading police on a 40-mile chase down Interstate 95 and fatally shooting himself. The incident unraveled on Sunday, beginning at a townhome where 35-year-old Jyrece McClendon lives and ending along a road in Miami-Dade County. McClendon is expected to survive her injuries. But Boynton Beach police say 44-year-old Samori Kwame Walden shot himself and crashed his car.6 cruise ships dock at Port CanaveralCAPE CANAVERAL, — It was a busy weekend at Port Canaveral. Florida Today reports six cruise ships docked at Port Canaveral on Sunday. Four of the ships are based out of the port and two were making port-of-call stops. Chief Executive Officer John Walsh says it is a sign of things to come as the port tries to overtake the Port of Miami as the world’s No. 1 cruise port. He says there should be more six-ship days at the port later this year. In 2017, the port could have some seven-ship days. The addition cruise ships bring in more business for the area’s hotels, restaurants, retailers and attractions. adno=50477346 ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT As Seen on the Dr. Oz.

(AP) — A tractor-trailer driver threw items from his cab at police — including socks, shoes and a small refrigerator — as he led them on a 34-mile chase in western Pennsylvania, authorities said Sunday. Police in Westmoreland County said a man called emer gency dispatchers just before 2 a.m. Saturday and said he planned to wreck his truck. State troopers tried to stop the vehicle near Washington Township but the driver disregarded the emer gency lights and sirens, and a pursuit began along Route 70 and later the Pennsylvania Turnpike, police said. The driver refused orders to leave the cab, police said, so troopers entered and used a stun gun to subdue him. He was taken to a hospital because officers believed he was under the influence of a controlled substance, namely Xanax, and for other injuries, police said.ODD NEWS Tractor-trailer driver heaves fridge at police multi-step calculations needed to solve math problems that go beyond just using rote memory. Students in some states will take adaptive versions in which questions get harder or easier depending on their answers. But there’s been controversy. The tests have been caught up in the debate playing out in state legisla tures across the country about the federal role in education. Although more than 40 states have adopted Common Core, which spells out what reading and math skills students should master in each grade, several have decided not to offer the tests — known as the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, and Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC. Some states are introducing other new state standardized tests this year. The Common Core tests fulll the requirement in the federal No Child Left Behind law for annual testing in reading and math in grades three to eight and again in high school. But as Congress seeks to rewrite the educa tion law, there’s debate over whether the tests should be required by Washington, and whether students are being tested too much. Parents in pockets of the country have joined a movement to “opt out” of these standardized tests. Questions also have been raised about students’ keyboarding skills and schools’ computer capacities. In the Appalachian foothills where Kayla attends Morgan South Elementary School, administrators and teachers worry that they don’t have the bandwidth to provide reliable Internet connectivity on testing day. Both tests offer a paper option. PARCC ofcials anticipate that about a quarter of students will use the paper version; Smarter Balanced ofcials estimate roughly 10 to 20 percent will take it on paper. Just eight days before the test, the Morgan Local School District in rural southeastern Ohio ordered 200 more Chromebooks, which worked best during the practice run. The week before the test, Kayla and her classmates huddled in pairs sharing what devices were available at the school. “They’ll be more comfortable with the technology, but it is a worry of mine that, as far as the content that’s on it, there’s still stuff I could be doing to prepare for the test,” says their teacher, Carrie Young. Eleven-year-old Colton Kidd says the screens on the Chromebooks are too small. Classmate Josie Jackson, 12, prefers pencil and paper. But Liam Montgomery likes computerized tests: “It’s easier to get the answers down, because I don’t have to ip back and forth.” In some places, school administrators and state leaders are only grudgingly moving forward. Referencing federal law, Illinois State Board of Education ofcials threatened to withhold funds from any district that didn’t administer the PARCC exam. Chicago Public Schools ofcials cited technology concerns in announcing they won’t give the exam in a majority of its schools.TESTSFROM PAGE 1 the record set in 1888, said Jeffrey Tongue, a National Weather Service meteorologist. Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh said the latest snowstorm left one person dead, apparently due to a heart attack while shoveling snow. A partial roof collapse at an eight-building apartment complex in Portsmouth, N.H., left 500 to 700 people looking for warmth. In New Jersey, a 66-year-old woman who had been drinking at a benet was found dead in the snow, just two doors from her home. Fireghters working on a blaze in Philadelphia left behind a building coated in icicles. No one was hurt. West Virginia was getting hit hard by the snowstorm when a train carrying crude oil derailed about 30 miles from Charleston. At least one tanker went into the Kanawha River and a nearby house caught re. It wasn’t clear if the winter storm had anything to do with the crash. The storm was headed toward the Carolinas overnight, and then expected to march through the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear urged people to stay home if possible. By Monday afternoon, 9 inches of snow had fallen in Louisville and other parts were buried under a foot of snow. In central Kentucky, home to much of the state’s signature thor oughbred industry, horses kept warm by galloping through the deep snow, pausing occasionally to shake it off from their thick winter coats. Ned Toffey, general manager of Spendthrift Farm in Lexington, said the horses enjoy running in the snow because it gives them a nice cushion as opposed to the harder, packed earth. Arkansas, where temperatures plummeted from the 70s on Saturday to highs in the 30s a day later, had nearly 30,000 people without power at the peak of the storm. Roads were slushy and trafc was moving slowly in Tennessee. Justyn Jackson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Nashville, said the last bad winter storm in the city was 2010 when up to 4 inches of snow fell. “A lot of cities up North, they deal with this several times during the winter. It’s really not uncommon for them at all,” Jackson said. “Down here, especially in Nashville, although it’s not rare, it certainly on average happens once or twice a winter.” Georgia ofcials were taking no chances, bringing in more personnel to the state operations center and pre-treating roads with a mixture of salt and water. Atlanta was expected to get rain, dodging any icy or snowy conditions. Up to a quar ter of an inch of ice could accumulate in a handful of mountainous northern counties.WINTERFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOA Philadelphia reghter walks near the scene of an overnight blaze in west Philadelphia, Monday, where ice has formed from the water used to ght the re.

Libya is where the Islamic State group has built up its strongest presence outside Syria and Iraq. Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi is lobbying Europe and the United States for a coordinated international response similar to the coalition air campaign in those countries. “What is happening in Libya is a threat to international peace and security,” said El-Sissi. El-Sissi spoke with France’s president and Italy’s prime minister Monday about Libya, and sent his foreign minister, Sameh Shukri, to New York to consult at the United Nations ahead of a terrorism conference opening Wednesday in Washington. The bombs were dropped by U.S.-made F-16 ghter jets that left Egyptian bases for targets in the eastern Libyan city of Darna, according to Egyptian and Libyan security ofcials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the press. The strikes came hours after the Islamic State group issued a grisly video of the beheadings of 21 Egyptian Christians, mainly young men from impoverished families who were kidnapped after traveling to Libya for work. The video shows them being marched onto what is purported to be a Libyan beach before masked militants with knives cut off their heads. Thirteen of the 21 came from Egypt’s tiny Christian-majority village of el-Aour, where relatives wept in church and shouted the names of the dead on Monday. Babawi Walham, his eyes swollen from crying and barely able to speak, said his brother Samuel, a 30-year-old plumber, was in the video his family saw on the news Sunday night. “Our life has been turned upside down,” he told The Associated Press. “I watched the video. I saw my brother. My heart stopped beating. I felt what he felt.” Libyan extremists loyal to the Islamic State and some 400 ghters from Yemen and Tunisia have seized control of Darna and the central city of Sirte and have built up a powerful presence in the capital, Tripoli, as well as the second-largest city, Benghazi. Libya’s inter nationally recognized government has been driven into the country’s far eastern corner.LIBYAFROM PAGE 1 tourists came from Canada. Those are increases over 2013 as well.

Since becoming gover nor, Scott has pushed to increase the amount of money spent on marketing and advertising by Visit Florida. This year he is seeking an increase of $17.5 million. It’s not clear, however, if state legislators will go along with the request. Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater and chair man of the committee that oversees Visit Florida’s budget, said last week that while the numbers have jumped the last few years that another large boost in funding may not produce another large jump in the number of visitors.TOURISTSFROM PAGE 1 COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — The gunman responsible for Copenhagen’s deadly shooting attacks was released from jail about two weeks ago and might have become radicalized there last summer, a source close to the Danish terror investigation told The Associated Press on Monday. Two Danish sources close to the investigation conrmed to the AP that the gunman was named Omar Abdel Hamid ElHussein. They spoke on condition of anonymity because Copenhagen police have not named the gunman, who they said was a 22-year-old Dane with a history of violence and gang connections. Several Danish media have already named him. One source told the AP that El-Hussein had been in pre-trial detention for a long time but was released two weeks ago. He also said the corrections author ity had alerted Danish security service PET last year after they noticed worrisome changes in El-Hussein’s behavior last summer. He wouldn’t give specics but said such alerts are issued when inmates change their attitude or behavior in a way that “sets off alarm bells.” PET spokeswoman Lotte Holmstrup declined to comment on the report, saying “we are working on nding out what has happened.” PET director Jens Madsen on Sunday conrmed that the gunman was known to the agency before last weekend’s attacks in Copenhagen that killed two people and wounded ve police ofcers. He said the gunman may have been inspired by last month’s terror attacks by Islamic extremists in Paris that killed 17 people, but did not elaborate on when the agency began tracking him. The news about the suspected gunman came as Danes mourned the victims of the country’s rst fatal terror attacks in 30 years — and, in an unusual development, some also put owers on the street at the spot where police killed El-Hussein. The prime ministers of Denmark and Sweden were expected to join thousands of people at memorials in Copenhagen on Monday evening. While a Danish court on Monday jailed two suspected accomplices of El-Hussein’s for 10 days, Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt insisted there were no signs the gunman had any links to a wider terror cell. “But we will, of course, in the coming time evaluate our ght against radicalization. We are already doing a lot,” she said. In November 2013, police distributed photos of El-Hussein because he was wanted for a stabbing on a subway train in Copenhagen. At the time, police said he stabbed a 19-year-old man in his left thigh with a large knife. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he was in pre-trial detention for that crime. Investigators on Monday released more information about the gunman’s movements between the attacks, one Saturday afternoon at a cultural center and another early Sunday outside a synagogue, both in Copenhagen. Police spokesman Joergen Skov said the gunman visited an Internet cafe late Saturday, about six-anda-half hours after the rst attack. Police raided the facility on Sunday and detained four people, including the two men arraigned on Monday, Skov said. The other two were released.Gunman in Copenhagen attacks just out of jail O41814cTAO Lairi ;1ti aILI,AIM4 X a rI '\4m


The Sun /Tuesday, February 17, 2015 WIRE Page 5 WORLD NEWS LUHANSKE, Ukraine (AP) — Intense artillery exchanges between Ukrainian government forces and Russianbacked separatists per sisted Monday around a strategic town in eastern Ukraine — ghting that threatens to dash a cease-re deal brokered by European leaders last week. Under the cease-re agreement negotiated by the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France, the warring sides are to begin withdrawing heavy weapons from the front line Tuesday. That plan already looks at risk, with the rebels saying they are not satised that conditions are in place for the process to go ahead. Associated Press reporters in Luhanske, a government-held town 9 miles northwest of the bitterly contested railway hub of Debaltseve, heard sustained shelling Monday. Some of the artillery appeared to be outgoing, suggesting it was being red by Ukrainian troops. Debaltseve, still in government hands, remains in contention despite the cease-re. The rebels insist the town should revert to their control because they have encircled it. A loaded Grad rocket launcher was seen pointing in the direction of Debaltseve, but it was not red while AP journalists were present. Speaking by telephone Monday night, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko expressed concerns about the continued ghting at Debaltseve and “also expressed the wish that the OSCE observers have a free access to continue their work on the ground,” an ofcial in Hollande’s entourage said. The ofcial spoke anonymously because they were not allowed to speak publicly. Observers from the Organization from Security and Cooperation in Europe, who are supposed to monitor the cease-re, said Sunday that separatists denied them access to Debaltseve. Despite the cease-re that went into effect early Sunday morning, ve Ukrainian troops were killed and 25 were wounded in the past 24 hours, Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said Monday. Separatist military ofcial Eduard Basurin said in a televised news conference Monday that the government over night lobbed artillery at Horlivka, a town under rebel control. Ukraine, however, blamed that attack on the rebels. The government-appointed police chief of the Donetsk region, Vyacheslav Abroskin, said the separatists shelled the town in order to derail the truce. The cease-re appeared to hold elsewhere. The city hall of the rebel capital Donetsk, which came under heavy artillery re in the past week, said on Monday that there was no ghting in the area. Ukraine and the West accuse Russia of arming and supplying manpower to the separatists and have imposed a range of economic sanctions to pressure Moscow into changing its course. Russia denies all suggestions it is directly involved in the war in Ukraine, but the sheer amount of heavy weapons the rebels have belies that claim. The cease-re had raised cautious hopes for an end to the 10-month-old conict, which has already claimed more than 5,300 lives. But Ukraine and rebel ofcials have already traded multiple accusations of attacks since then. Both the separatists and the Ukrainian government insist they are committed to the cease-re negotiated in marathon talks last week. But the Russian news agency Interfax quoted Basurin as saying Monday that conditions are not yet ready to pull back heavy weapons on Tuesday.Battle persists for Ukraine railway hub AP PHOTOA Ukrainian soldier rests on his vehicle near the road between the towns of Debaltseve and Artemivsk, Ukraine, Monday. The Ukrainian government and Russia-backed rebels accused each other Monday of violating a cease-re in eastern Ukraine, a day before the parties are due to start withdrawing heavy weaponry under a recently brokered deal. EL-AOUR, Egypt (AP) — This village of small mud alleys and brick homes is shattered by grief. Women draped in black are hoarse from screaming. Men sob in silence, at times shaking their heads as if to expel the horror from their minds. Just last year, 13 young men from el-Aour, a Christian-majority farming community in Egypt’s Nile River Valley, traveled to neighboring Libya, among the tens of thousands of impover ished Egyptians seeking work there. But they became victims of Libya’s chaos. They were among 21 Christians dragged off by militants in December and January. After nearly 50 days knowing nothing of their fate, their families on late Sunday saw their monstrous, videotaped last moments: The 21, wearing orange jumpsuits, were marched onto a Libyan beach, forced to kneel with a masked, knife-wielding militant standing behind each, and then beheaded. The deaths touched everyone in the village’s population of around 3,400. On Monday, Bushra Fawzi could not stop weeping. He saw his son Shenouda in the video. “I had been looking for a bride for him,” Fawzi gasped. “He is my rst and eldest son. My rst joy and happiness.” “I want his body back. If they dumped it in the sea, I want it back. If they set re to it, I want its dust.” And he wanted revenge — to “take hold of his murderer, tear him apart, eat his liver and his esh.” He and others in the village vented anger at the Egyptian government, saying it failed to help them. Many accusing it of ignoring them because they were Christian. “If there were Muslims among the 21, they would have been rescued. But no one paid attention,” one woman screamed to reporters outside her house. President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi “did nothing to our sons because they are Christians.” After the video came out, el-Sissi went on national TV and vowed vengeance, and hours later, Egyptian war planes struck Islamic State group targets in their main stronghold in Libya, Darna. In a show of support, el-Sissi visited the pope of Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Christian Church at the main cathedral in Cairo, and his prime minister, Ibrahim Mahlab, visited el-Aour on Monday, meeting with grieving families. El-Sissi was elected last spring with overwhelming support from Egypt’s Christians, who backed his ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi from power. Still, the minority community feels it remains as second-class citizens, long complaining of discrimination. During protests in Cairo over the abduction of the 21 in Libya last week, demonstrators chanted, “The blood of the Copts is not cheap.” Libya, rich in oil and short on labor, has long been a magnet for Egyptians. Libya’s 2011 civil war left much of the country in ruins, creating a boom for skilled for eign workers. Egyptians have jumped at the opportunity: they are the largest single group of foreign workers in Libya. They have continued to go even as Egyptians, and Copts in particular, have become targets for Islamic extremists our ishing in Libya’s chaos. The 21 were abducted in the central Libyan city of Sirte in December and January, most of them when militants stormed their housing compound, picking out the Christians from among the Muslims.Grief wracks Egypt village after its sons beheaded AP PHOTOWomen mourn over Egyptian Coptic Christians who were captured in Libya and killed by militants aliated with the Islamic State group, outside of the Virgin Mary church in the village of el-Aour, near Minya, 135 miles south of Cairo, Egypt, Monday. | WORLD AP PHOTOThe photo provided by European Space Agency ESA on Monday shows a four-image mosaic of Comet 67P/ Churyumov–Gerasimenko which comprising images were taken on Feb. 14 during the rst dedicated close yby from a distance of 8.9 km from the surface.

The defendant, whose name wasn’t disclosed in line with privacy laws, allegedly served in Auschwitz from January 1942 to June 1944, the Detmold state court said in a statement Monday. He’s alleged to have been assigned to the Auschwitz I camp, but also to have helped supervise new prisoners, largely Jews, as they arrived in AuschwitzBirkenau, the part of the camp complex where most of its 1.1 million victims were killed.Canada railway strike endsOTTAWA, Canada (AP) — Canada’s labor minister said Monday the Canadian Pacific Railway strike had ended, with both sides agreeing to resume discussions. News of the deal came after Canada’s Conservative government threatened to introduce legislation to force an end to the strike by more than 3,000 Teamsters members, saying the strike posed a threat to the economy. In a surprise news conference, Labor Minister Kellie Leitch welcomed the willingness by both sides to resume talks, a development that had seemed impossible just hours earlier.Boko Haram issues new threat against Niger, ChadYAOUNDE, Cameroon (AP) — The Nigeria-based terror group Boko Haram issued a new threat Monday against neighboring countries Niger and Chad, warning the ghters were prepared to carry out suicide bombings in the countries sending troops to help ght the extremists. The warning came as leaders from Niger and other countries in the region gathered in Cameroon’s capital to nalize plans for a joint offensive against the militants who have stepped up their attacks in recent weeks.Indonesia moving 2 Aussies, 5 others for executionJAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Eight convicted drug smugglers, including seven foreigners, will be transferred to an Indonesian prison island this week for imminent execution despite international appeals for clemency, an ofcial said Monday. Among the eight are Andrew Chan, 31, and Myuran Sukumaran, 33, the ringleaders of a group of nine Australians arrested in 2005 for attempting to smuggle18.3 pounds of heroin to Australia from the Indonesian resort island of Bali. The seven other members of the group — dubbed the “Bali Nine” by Australian media — have received prison sentences ranging from 20 years to life. In addition to Chan and Sukumaran, ve men from France, Brazil, Ghana, Nigeria and Indonesia, and a woman from the Philippines, will face a ring squad after being moved to Nusa Kambangan prison.American gored by bull in Spain out of intensive careMADRID (AP) — A 20-year-old American man who was badly gored during a bull-running festival is out of intensive care and improving, a spokesman for the Clinic Hospital in western Salamanca said Monday. Benjamin Miller, from Georgia, was out of danger and not likely to have to undergo any further operations, the spokesman said. He spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with hospital rules. Miller suffered several wounds, including a 16inch goring in the thigh, when he was caught by a ghting bull during a festival in the nearby town of Ciudad Rodrigo on Saturday.

Francis phoned the patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church, Pope Tawadros II, to “express his profound participation with the pain of the Coptic Church for the recent barbaric assassination of Coptic Christians by Islamic fundamentalists,” the Vatican spokesman said.Italy mulls military action in LibyaROME (AP) — Italy would weigh participating in any military intervention to keep forces from the Islamic State group from advancing in Libya should diplomatic efforts fail, Italian ofcials said Monday. Defense Minister Roberta Pinotti has said Rome could contribute 5,000 troops to lead such a military mission. But Pinotti and Premier Matteo Renzi on Monday sought to dispel the notion Italy already decided on mil itary operations if launched under the auspices of the United Nations. Renzi told the private TG5 TV news ‘’the proposal is to wait, so the U.N. Security Council can work with a bit more conviction on Libya” diplomatically. kCatT, re 3/.-

Terreira is among hundreds of spectators who cannot afford a ticket to the vast grounds of the Sambadrome where Rio’s samba school parades are held, and instead watches the nightlong extravaganza from bleachers a few hundred meters (yards) from the parade route. Hundreds of other mostly poor people take in the parade from a nearby overpass, where some lounge in beach chairs and barbecue on portable grills. “Carnival is Brazil’s biggest popular party, but the masses are being excluded,” said Terreira, a 53-year-old public school teacher whose black slicker helped protect her from driving rains Sunday, the rst of two main parade nights at the Sambadrome. “Here, we have to endure the smell of that rotten canal there,” she said, gesturing at a sewage-lled waterway that separated the bleachers from the preparation area. There, on the other side, giant oats are hauled into place and dancers and musicians change into their over-thetop costumes as the 12 samba schools competing for this year’s title get ready to enter the runway. “We don’t actually see much,” said Terreira, “but it’s better than nothing.” Rio’s Carnival has its origins in the streets, and samba schools bear the names of the hillside “favela” slums where they were born. But while about 14,200 tickets are sold for around $4, prices for most seats start at over $75 and rise sharply from there, which is a small fortune in a country where the monthly minimum wage is $278. The most exclusive of the Sambadrome’s “camarotes,” or private boxes seating 30 people, fetch more than $42,000 nightly. Many of the low-price tickets are ultimately snatched up by scalpers, who on Sunday were reselling them for $70 each, said Jorgelina Tunala, a 52-year-old housewife who braved the drizzle on the bleachers set up by the local government each year and offered free of charge to users on a rstcome, rst-served basis. In past years, she was able to score a scalped ticket for the Sambadrome around $20, but this year wasn’t so lucky. “Here it’s fun because there’s really the Carnival spirit,” Tunala shouted over hoots and cheers for Mocidade Independente as the samba school prepared to enter the runway. Venders hawking cans of ice-cold beer out of Styrofoam coolers jostled through the boisterous crowd, while others grilled hot dogs or served up tapioca omelets at stands at the foot of the bleachers. “It really doesn’t compare with the experience you get inside the Sambadrome,” where the whole parade is visible, not just the schools warming up, said Tunala. “If I can ever afford to get a ticket to the Sambadrome again, you better believe I won’t be here.” Patrick Souza, a 30-yearold history teacher from a distant, hardscrabble Rio suburb, said Carnival was going the same way as Brazilian soccer. High ticket prices at Brazil’s new stadiums, built for last year’s World Cup, have meant fewer fans at games. “Like soccer, Carnival is becoming a party for the rich,” said Souza. “And that’s a real shame because it’s the poor who have always made up the heart of Carnival.”Brazil’s have-nots take in Carnival parades from afar AP PHOTOPerformers from the Mocidade samba school hang upside down from their oat, during the Carnival parade at the Sambadrome in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Monday.PARIS (AP) — Despite desecrated Jewish graves in France and a deadly attack at a synagogue in Denmark, European leaders on Monday rejected calls from Israel’s leader for a mass migration of the continent’s Jews to Israel, urging unity instead. Hundreds of Jewish tombstones were found vandalized in eastern France on Sunday, hours after a Danish Jew guarding a synagogue in Copenhagen was shot to death. Frenchmen have been accused of three deadly attacks on Jewish sites since 2012: one at a school in the southern city of Toulouse, another at a museum in Brussels and nally one at a kosher market in Paris last month. Twelve people died in total. “We know there are doubts, questions across the community,” French President Francois Hollande said Monday. “I will not just let what was said in Israel pass, leading people to believe that Jews no longer have a place in Europe and in France in particular.” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Monday the government would defend French Jews against what he described as “Islamo-fascism.” “A Jew who leaves France is a piece of France that is gone,” Valls told RTL radio. Hollande was to visit the desecrated Jewish cemetery in the small town of Sarre-Union on Tuesday, his ofce said. Of the 400 tombs in the Sarre-Union cemetery, 250 had been vandalized. Investigators were questioning ve minors, 15to 17-years-old, in connection with the vandalized cemetery, said Philippe Vannier, prosecutor of the eastern Bas-Rhin region. One of the ve had turned himself in. All were from the region and none had any criminal record, he said. They can be held for up to 48 hours before being either charged or released. In 2014, more than 7,000 French Jews in a community estimated at around 500,000 left for Israel, more than double the number for 2013. And the Israeli Cabinet on Sunday approved a $46 million plan to encourage still more Jewish immigration from France, Belgium and Ukraine. The exodus from France accelerated after the March 2012 attacks by Mohammed Merah, who stormed a Jewish school in Toulouse, killing three children and a rabbi. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that at a time of rising anti-Semitism in Europe, Israel is the only place where Jews can truly feel safe.Europe fights call for mass migration of Jews ' A tT '''r X\ A , HD .,, .,, " st/40,l -_Wnnipeg-0620 Ottawa o9/4eiingc Minneapats /36/22 9/-6 Toronto15/5 NewYork^r /j-^26L18 9 21/6 San Frandsse 18/4 63/49 Kansas City WashingtonDenver< `( 27/7s7/7 3\ ,/39/20Los Angeles T i ;f ---AtbfftaO \ / I f 9 pa" 45126'tsyar s '.62/37Chlhu' 'Qua 53/33 'Qua 53/33 Hmston\/\ J,68/36 / o fMontasroy Miami 1! ` . 63145 83166A I Wit` L57 v v '0 550 100150 200 300 500 0 -,Trees `Lr .r a a I, \\Grass;absenlWeeds' ' ) `, ' ,Moldsi aol__.,absent bw moderate high very high \\\\AccuWeather.coms s s 9sr.

Last fall, researchers at the Indianapolis-based Datalys Center for Sports Injury Research and Prevention collected data from 2,108 football players ages 5 to 15. The organization monitored injuries of 100 teams in 10 youth leagues and four states. The data showed players who competed for coaches with training in USA Football’s “Heads-Up Football” program are better protected than those who did not. USA Football, the sport’s national governing body, commissioned the study. The data show that players in Heads-Up leagues were 34 percent less likely to get a concussion in practice, 29 percent less likely to get a concussion in a game and could greatly reduce the amount of signicant head impacts each season, perhaps by an average of 90 fewer hits per season. Dr. Tom Dompier, the president of Datalys and the study’s chief researcher, believes the information is so convincing, he is putting it to use in his own household. “My son is 6 and he played (ag) football last year and probably will this Study: Properly trained coaches reduce injuries YOUTH FOOTBALL: ConcussionsEducation correlates to on-eld safetyBy MICHAEL MAROTASSOCIATED PRESSSTUDY | 2 AP FILE PHOTOMiami coach Al Golden, shown during a game last season, CORAL GABLES — For Miami coach Al Golden, spring football might seem like a breeze compared to the whirlwind leading up to signing day. Subsisting on gas-station sandwiches hurriedly picked up between meetings, dealing with delayed and canceled ights, spending the better part of a week ghting off the u and getting an average of about ve hours sleep per night were just some of the highlights from Golden’s calendar leading to signing day this month. Spring football starts today at Miami, meaning Golden’s schedule — like most coaches around the country after the recruiting frenzy — should have more normalcy. “The structure allows you to get your feet underneath you,” Golden said. “I took some time off this weekend. There’s so many things that are random that we can’t control in our job. Anytime you can get the structure of spring ball, that’s why coaches are all smiles.” The Associated Press reviewed Golden’s itinerary for the three weeks leading up to signing day. Here is some of what went into those frantic days when he was working on closing the signing class of 2015 but also on the groups for 2016 — ranked as the nation’s best so far based on early commitments — and 2017: WORK DAY Golden averaged about a dozen meetings or events per day during the 21-day stretch, everything from individual talks with players or recruits, chatting with high school coaches, home visits and sometimes receptions for parents and families. Excluding retweets, Golden posted only one thing on his Twitter account over that time, but he was hardly eschewing social media. Many mornings started with Golden exchanging direct messages with recruits and commits, and his shortest work day in that span appears to be about No rest for the weary in final weekBy TIM REYNOLDSASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Signing dayMiami coach’s schedule reveals why spring football is a respite SCHEDULE | 4 Time was, this time of year belonged to the Miami Heat. NBA All-Star Weekend might as well have been a showcase for the organization. The previous four seasons featured at least three Heat All-Stars. In 2013, Erik Spoelstra was the coach of the Eastern Conference team. Norris Cole, Mario Chalmers and James Jones participated in the All-Star Saturday Night portion of the event. How things have changed. The Heat were represented by forward Chris Bosh in Sunday’s game at Madison Square Garden. The West defeated the East 163-158 behind MVP Russell Westbrook’s 41 points. The game was a reunion for Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James — often referred to as The Big Three — but it was hardly the same. Wade, who was chosen as a reserve, pulled out of the game so he could rest his ailing hamstrings. The remainder of the season is the priority, not a meaningless exhibition.

LOCAL SPORTS & RECREATIONBrothers ride highs, lows of BMX racingThis past weekend’s Sunshine State Nationals at the Charlotte BMX track, the fourth stop on this year’s USA BMX National schedule, drew plenty of area participants. Among them were Port Charlotte brothers Aiden and Rowen Raimondo, who have been track regulars for three years. Aiden, a fourth-grader, was third in the age 10 intermediate prerace Friday. “I was happy,” he said. “I got a bad gate, and I smashed my knee on the bike (stem). I smashed it on the rst turn.” Aiden has been racing since he was 7, an accomplishment given that a genetic condition caused him to have a stroke at 4, according to his mother, Gabriel. “He had to relearn how to do everything,” she said, adding that he has weakness on his left side and has to live with the genetic condition. He has been competing at the intermediate level about six months, she said. Aiden was eighth in his age group at the Sunshine State BMX Association Cup qualier 1 in November. He was the Charlotte BMX rider of the month for January, nominated because of the hard work he put into training. “Aiden trains a lot,” his mother said. “He has to work at it more. Rowen doesn’t have to work as hard, which is sometimes frustrates his older brother.” Rowen, who is 5, has been active in BMX since he was 2. He started in the Strider program, in which riders push with their feet while riding bikes without pedals. “It teaches them balance,” his mother said. He has been racing at the intermediate level about a month. He was second in the 5-and-under intermediate group during SSA Cup qualier No. 3 and third during the SSA Cup qualier No. 4 at his home track in January. He was third in his age group Saturday and Sunday. “Two of them got in front of me because they had a faster gear,” the kindergartner said. “The wind slowed me down when I got out of the gate.” “He’s really skinny,” his mother said with a laugh. “A little bit of breeze can slow him down.”The Local Sports and Recreation column appears each Tuesday.

If he does play tackle football next year, it will be under two conditions. One is whether we can nd equipment that ts and the second condition is that the league will have to go through Heads-Up Football,” he told The Associated Press. “After going through these three years of study, I believe that coaching education should be mandatory.” Datalys had previously collected data from about 4,000 youth players in 2012 and 2013. The three-year totals show that 2.8 percent of players ages 5 to 15 were actually diagnosed with concussions and that only one player in the 5 to 7-yearold age group actually sustained a concussion during that span. But the focus of the newest study was to determine whether coaching education could provide a safer environment on the eld. Roughly two-thirds of the players who were monitored played for coaches who had been certied undergone training with USA Football’s program. Seventy-two of the players, ages 9 to 15, also had their helmets tted with devices to measure the impact of hits. Following each practice or game, independent trainers tracked the information to determine how many signicant blows to the head each player took. The study found that the 38 players who participated in Heads-Up leagues had an average of 2.5 fewer impacts per practice of at least 10 G-forces. Over a 12-week season containing three practices per week, researchers determined that was about 90 fewer signicant hits per season than those in leagues that did not undergo training. The results also showed those who played for the certied coaches were 76 percent less likely to get injured and 57 percent less likely to sustain injuries that kept them out of action at least 24 hours. Ninety percent of those players also went uninjured. “In my own mind, I think coach education is important, and I think the data collected shows that it’s important,” Dompier said. “I don’t want to promote USA Football over someone else’s program. But I think it’s important coaches receive some training in proper tackling and equipment tting.”STUDYFROM PAGE 1 paper, looked difcult for Charlotte. Injuries forced the Tarpons (1-1) to send converted second baseman Christian Faldetta to the mound against Manta Rays (1-3) ace and Elon-commit Ryan Conroy, who started and pitched three scoreless innings. Though he didn’t nd out he was pitching until two hours before gametime, Faldetta delivered for the Tarpons. The junior gave up two runs on ve hits and a walk over six-plus innings, striking out four in his rst varsity start. Gibson Bittner relieved Faldetta in the seventh and gave up three hits over three innings while retiring the Manta Rays in order in the bottom of the ninth. “I was condent in my stuff, but I didn’t think they would let me go all six or seven,” Faldetta said. “To get the rst win, win in extras, go (today) in a home game, it’s big momentum.” Charlotte took a 1-0 lead in the fth when catcher Wesley Wilson singled to left, was advanced to third and scored on a wild pitch. Lemon Bay responded in the next frame when left elder Tyler Evans drove in Travis Richards on a suicide squeeze. The Tarpons regained the lead in the seventh when Faldetta walked and scored on Ethan Vaughn’s RBI single up the middle. Again the Manta Rays responded in the next frame. Right elder Luke Conklin singled and Richard reached on a error to chase Faldetta. Pinch-hitter Nicholas Beltz greeted Bittner with a single that brought home the tying run. Lemon Bay had a chance to win in the eighth, putting runners on second and third with one out, but Richards missed a signal for a squeeze play and instead popped out to rst, leaving pinch-runner Sam Steyer hung out to dry and doubled up at third. “Those are fun games to play. I’d rather play a game like that than something that’s 10-0 any day,” Lemon Bay coach Casey Hanrahan said. “We had a lot of situations where we could have changed the outcome of the game, but it didn’t happen for us. Not (Monday). So that’s something we need to work on.”Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or BAY 3, CHARLOTTE 2Charlotte 000 010 101 — 3 11 4 Lemon Bay 000 010 100 — 2 8 1 Christian Faldetta, Gibson Bittner (7) and Wesley Wilkinson.

The Sun /Tuesday, February 17, 2015 SP Page 3 the weekend into oppor tunity for charity work, including opening a learning lounge at a Brooklyn high school. His only presence during the game came in the rst quarter when he addressed the crowd to introduce some NBA Legends. The list included George Mikan, Magic Johnson Bob Cousy and Wilt Chamberlain. “We continue to honor the past, by passing the torch,” Wade said. In a sense, the Heat have passed the torch to the rest of the conference. After four consecutive NBA Finals appearances, they are hanging onto the eighth and nal playoff spot in the East. James, meanwhile, is in position to play in the Finals for a fth consecutive time. His new team, Cleveland, took over as the league’s most scrutinized team. The breakup left Bosh, who nished with 10 points on 4 of 6 shooting, alone during the midseason event. In the past, this was about the Heat exing their star power. The trio was the main attraction of an event full of stars. Part of the reason Wade, who could have used the time to rehab in Miami, made the trip was so he could support Bosh as the Heat’s lone representative. “I never feel like the center of attention,” Bosh said. “I’m just trying to represent the Heat my family and make sure I don’t say anything stupid.” Bosh was referring to comments in the media. This was the rst time he and James were teammates since Game 5 of last year’s NBA Finals. The two seemed past their supposed feud that spawned last summer when James decided to leave Miami for Cleveland. Bosh created a stir last October when he said he no longer talked with James. It was viewed as Bosh being upset by James’ departure, especially because poor timing left the Heat scrambling during free agency. Two months later, Bosh said his comments “were taken out proportion.” The two indeed remain friends and displayed it during Sunday’s game. Before tip-off, they interacted and Bosh went out of his way to shake hands with James after a timeout. It even looked like old times when James found Bosh for a 3-pointer off a pick-and-roll in the third quarter. “I don’t think we’re that far removed,” Bosh said. “It’s only been a few months.” Celebrating his 10th All-Star selection took precedence over any alleged bad blood.BOSHFROM PAGE 1 NEW YORK — LeBron James isn’t used to looking up at so many teams at the All-Star break. The Golden State Warriors and Atlanta Hawks occupy his former perch atop the standings, and Stephen Curry and Paul Millsap think that’s where their teams belong. The Western Conference is loaded as usual — so good that All-Star Game MVP Russell Westbrook wouldn’t even be in the playoffs if they started now. There are three teams between the Hawks and fth-place Cleveland in the East, putting James in the rare position of chaser. He can’t wait to try. “I’m excited. I’m excited what our team can accomplish,” he said. “We entered the break playing some really, really good basketball; winning 14 of our last 16. I’m going to take these next couple of days off and get back in the gym on Wednesday a little bit, go hard on Thursday and get ready to play Washington on Friday.” The NBA has a longer midseason break than usual this season, with play not resuming until Friday. That gives Westbrook extra time to rest after pouring in 41 points Sunday in the West’s 163-158 victory at Madison Square Garden. His Oklahoma City Thunder have overcome injuries to he and Kevin Durant to win three straight, but they are still just outside the West’s top eight. No such worries for the Warriors, who rolled into the break with a 42-9 record and an MVP candidate in Curry. “It’s fun right now. We have a great team that has aspirations this year. I think it’s something that we’re poised to go after,” Curry said. “You want to just embrace the higher expectations that we put on ourselves and that are surrounding our team. We talk about what we’re trying to do this year. We want to back it up.” It will not be easy, with challenges throughout a rugged West where defending champion San Antonio will try to mount a charge from seventh place. The East was expected to come down to Chicago and Cleveland, and maybe it still will. Besides the Cavaliers’ strong run to the rst-half nish, with James looking healthy and Kevin Love appearing more comfortable, the Bulls won their last four to surge into third place. Neither is likely to catch the Hawks, who rode an undefeated January to a 43-11 record. Their balanced team play put four players in the All-Star Game, and in two months they can try to prove it would work in the postseason. “I’m not going to look too far ahead,” Millsap said. “We’re going to try to take care of the regular season rst, but we feel like there’s still room for improvement. We still feel like we haven’t played our best basketball. It’s shocking to say, but we feel like we can still get better and still have a lot to work on.” Here are some things to watch when play resumes this week: Talking trades: The trade deadline is Thursday afternoon, and teams such as Cleveland and Memphis have already shown this season how the right moves can pay off. More Melo: With the Knicks last in the league and the All-Star Game in his home arena over, Carmelo Anthony will have to decide how much more to play — if he does at all — after battling a sore left knee much of the season. Watching Wade: Dwyane Wade is expected to return from a hamstring injury that knocked him out of the All-Star Game on Friday at New York. The Heat need him, barely holding on to eighth place in the East. “We’re ready to attack the second half,” Heat All-Star Chris Bosh said. “We’re looking forward to having him back.” East’s Elite: Friday’s schedule could feature some East playoff previews. Toronto and Atlanta, the top two in the conference, square off, and the Cavs visit Washington — just as they would if the postseason opened that night. Seeking Stoudemire: Cut Monday by the Knicks after requesting a buyout, Amare Stoudemire could be attractive to a playoff contender once he clears waivers. Line of the week: Zach LaVine, Minnesota: 50-50--100. The rookie’s perfect start to the dunk contest had the building buzzing during All-Star Saturday night and sent him soaring to slamming stardom.By BRIAN MAHONEYASSOCIATED PRESS NBA: LookaheadLeBron will chase when play resumes AP PHOTOWest Team’s Stephen Curry, left, drives to the basket past East Team’s Al Horford during the rst half of Sunday’s NBA All-Star basketball game.

BOSTON — Miami spent its time Sunday after its game against Boston College was postponed playing what coach Jim Larranaga called “Ballroom Baseball.” A day later, his team pulled out what felt like a walk-off win over the Eagles. Tonye Jekiri hit four free throws in the closing 54.4 seconds of the second overtime, lifting the Hurricanes (16-9, 6-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) to an 89-86 victory over Boston College (9-15, 1-11) in a Monday afternoon makeup of a game postponed by yet another snowstorm in the region. Once the game was called Sunday, Larranaga decided his team needed to have a little fun inside the hotel. The players wrapped up a piece of paper with athletic tape and used their arms and hands as bats in the ballroom. “This is like a grand slam in the bottom of the ninth,” Larranaga said of the victory Monday. With tourney hopes likely to take a big hit with a loss, the Hurricanes rallied after being down by four with just 25 seconds left in the rst OT. “Personally, I think if we didn’t win this game it might have been over for us as far as NCAA tour nament is concerned,” Miami guard Davon Reed said. “Coming down the nal stretch, we needed this game.”MIAMI 89, BOSTON COLLEGE 86, 2OTMIAMI (16-9) Jekiri 2-9 8-10 12, Reed 6-10 4-6 19, McClel lan 8-15 4-4 24, Palmer 0-4 2-2 2, Rodriguez 2-6 2-2 6, Newton 0-1 0-0 0, Burnett 3-5 5-7 13, Thomas 0-1 0-0 0, Lecomte 2-5 5-6 10, Sherman 1-1 0-0 3.

A— 3,813.No. 2 Virginia 61, Pittsburgh 49: In Charlottesville, Va., Malcolm Brogdon scored 18 points and No. 2 Virginia used a late 8-0 scoring run to beat Pittsburgh. The Cavaliers (24-1, 12-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) three times held Pittsburgh (17-10, 6-7) scoreless for more than 5 minutes, and they needed all three to overcome their own problems scoring. But Virginia tied the best start to a season in program history, first accomplished in the 1981-82 season. No. 6 Villanova 80, Seton Hall 54: In Villanova, Pa., Darrun Hilliard scored 18 points, Daniel Ochefu had 11 points and 12 rebounds, and Villanova (24-2, 11-2 Big East) cruised to a win over Seton Hall (15-11, 5-9). WOMENNo. 5 Maryland 75, Michigan State 69: In East Lansing, Mich., Brionna Jones scored 17 points, Shatori Walker-Kimbrough and Laurin Mincy each had 15 and Maryland (23-2, 14-0 Big Ten) escaped Michigan State (12-14, 4-11). No. 15 Texas A&M 70, Alabama 49: In College Station, Texas, Courtney Walker scored a career-high 27, moving into ninth on Texas A&M’s career scoring list with 1,327 points, and the Aggies (20-6, 8-4 Southeastern Conference) beat Alabama (13-14, 2-10) to secure their 10th consecutive 20-win season.

The uniquely Vegas tribute has honored Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy. Tarkanian, credited with elevating Las Vegas to the national stage for college basketball, died Feb. 11 at age 84. His family hosted a private funeral service Monday at Our Lady of Las Vegas. Most Strip casinos have agreed to dim their non-essential exterior bulbs for a few minutes starting at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday in a tribute to the Hall of Fame coach. The moment’s timing is set to follow the end of a UNLV basketball home game against Boise State. UNLV alumni, Tony Cordasco and Scott Gulbransen set up a Twitter account and Facebook page asking casinos to honor Coach Tark. It received such a groundswell of attention that local media picked up the story, adding momentum to their push. “This is our ticker-tape parade,” Cordasco said. No. 1 Kentucky remains unanimous No. 1: Kentucky won its two games last week to push its record to 25-0, matching the best start in school history. The Wildcats’ run has sparked debate about whether they can become Division I’s first undefeated team since Indiana in 1976. But before Kentucky closes in on that piece of history, another rare achievement is within sight: Wire-towire No. 1 in the Associated Press’ Top 25 men’s poll. Should Kentucky remain at the top over the next five polls, it will become the eighth team to stay at No. 1 all season and first since UNLV in 1991. It doesn’t figure to be easy. The Wildcats already have had some close calls, including one last week, and still have six regular-season games and the SEC tournament to get through before the final AP poll on March 16. “You keep taking everybody’s best,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said. “We’re in a championship fight every time we walk into a building.” UConn back at No. 1 in women’s poll: UConn returned to No. 1. A 25-point win over then-topranked South Carolina vaulted the Huskies unanimously back to the top spot. They spent two weeks to start the season at No. 1 before a loss to Stanford in November. The Gamecocks fell to No. 2 after spending the last 12 weeks atop the Associated Press Top 25 women’s poll. They were followed by Baylor, Notre Dame and Maryland. Tennessee, Oregon, Louisville, Florida State and Duke rounded out the top 10. Florida Gulf Coast entered the poll for the first time in school history at No. 22 while South Florida dropped out.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSUnanimous decisions: Kentucky, UConn No.1 M r.r' re M .r CyliftIL iAw


Page 4 SP The Sun /Tuesday, February 17, 2015 12 hours. Idle time was nonexistent. While some of Golden’s assistants were visiting one school, he stayed in the car and spent the next 90 minutes calling recruits from a nearby parking lot. TRAVEL Golden took at least 13 ights — commercial, private and even one in a helicopter — in slightly more than a week, the rst three of those ights all being delayed or canceled. He visited at least eight states, with the shortest stop being about two hours. The AP analysis of Golden’s schedule showed he logged about 12,000 air miles in one eight-day span alone. FOOD Grab-and-go seemed to be the norm. The luxury of sit-down meals often didn’t t into the schedule. The rst stop each morning was usually Starbucks, for Golden’s standard large black iced coffee. A bag of almonds got him through the bulk of one day, and picking up some fast food to take on a ight wasn’t unheard of, either. “I’ve become more disciplined as I get older,” Golden said. “To get a sandwich, turkey on wheat or something as opposed to running in and getting a burger, I try to do a better job of that. Drink more water, fewer Diet Cokes, things of that nature.” He made at least two stops for gas-station Cuban sandwiches while on the road, made multiple trips to sub shops and sometimes caught a break when recruits’ mothers would cook for home visits. Among those meals: country breakfast casserole and sausage at offensive lineman Brendan Loftus’ home in Tallahassee. Must have been a good meal and conversation, Loftus wound up signing with Miami. SLEEP Golden averaged about ve hours of daily sleep over the 21-day stretch going into the day that recruits could formally sign their letters of intent. Some nights, sleep was in very short supply. On Feb. 3, the day before signing day, Golden started work the moment he awoke — and didn’t stop for the next 20 hours. The biggest sleep total he got during that stretch was about seven hours, which many doctors consider to be on the low end of a basic requirement for most adults. FLU Given all that, it’s no wonder Golden got sick. He was dogged by the u for parts of ve days, loading up on three bottles of Gatorade and over-the-counter medication at pharmacies some mornings before beginning his daily schedule. Nonetheless, no meetings appear to have been canceled or postponed by him ghting off the virus. THE END After the class of newcomers was revealed on Feb. 4 — another player signed the next day — Golden headed home for one last event. He and his wife Kelly hosted a signing day party at their home, thanking football staff, school employees, administrators, educational advisors, coaches and all the others “who helped us during recruiting cycle,” Golden said. It lasted several hours, and Golden was busy cleaning up when the clock struck midnight. With that, a new recruiting year had ofcially arrived. “There’s never a year on record where you didn’t want one or two more kids to come,” Golden said. “But you’ve got to take a deep breath and show gratitude to all the people that help you along the way.”SCHEDULEFROM PAGE 1 FORT WORTH, Texas — Marcus Mariota knows what he has to do at the NFL combine, whether he throws there or not. “You just have to get one team to love you. That’s all that really matters,” Mariota said Monday before accepting the Davey O’Brien Award as the nation’s top quarterback. “You are interviewing and trying to market yourself to get a job. . That’s what’s fun about this process.” Mariota said his throwing (right) shoulder that he sprained in the rst College Football Playoff championship game was feeling good. But he will not decide for a few more days about whether to throw later this week in Indianapolis. “Really, I’m looking forward to throwing if I’m able to do that,” he said. “It’s going to be a decision that my agent and the team that I have around me will decide.” The O’Brien’s black-tie awards dinner was held in downtown Fort Worth, about 20 minutes from the stadium where exactly ve weeks earlier the Heisman Trophy winner was injured in Oregon’s 42-20 championship loss to Ohio State. Named in honor of the 1938 Heisman Trophy winner from TCU, the O’Brien is another in an impressive list of awards for Mariota. Oregon’s star quarter back was the overwhelming winner for this year’s Heisman Trophy and The Associated Press college football player of the year. The dual-threat player also won the Maxwell Award and Walter Camp player of the year, and the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. Hurricanes, Knights head to combine: Eight University of Miami football players will travel to Indianapolis, Ind. to compete in the annual scouting combine, which takes place today through Monday at Lucas Oil Stadium. Defensive end Anthony Chickillo, wide receiver Phillip Dorsett, offensive lineman Jonathan Feliciano, offensive lineman Ereck Flowers, cornerback Ladarius Gunter, running back Duke Johnson, linebacker Denzel Perryman, tight end Clive Walford were each invited to the league’s primary scouting event. Central Florida has four former players scheduled to participate: wide receivers Rannell Hall and Breshad Perriman along with defensive backs Clayton Geathers and Jacoby Glenn. NFL Network will have coverage throughout the week, as well as on-field workouts beginning at 9 a.m.Mariota unsure of combine plans COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOKQuarterback says he may not throw for teamsSTAFF AND WIRE REPORTS DETROIT — Tomas Plekanec snapped a scoreless tie with 2:30 remaining and Carey Price made 25 saves in his fth shutout of the season, propelling the Montreal Canadiens to a 2-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night. Plekanec’s slap shot got past Jimmy Howard for his 17th goal of the season. Max Pacioretty, who assisted on the rst goal, added an empty-netter in the closing seconds. Howard, making his second start since missing ve weeks with a groin injury, stopped 27 shots as the Red Wings dropped their third straight. They have lost all three games against the Canadiens this season. Detroit defenseman Jonathan Ericsson lost his stick, and the puck, in front of Howard early in the third period and Pacioretty gained possession, but his point-blank shot was wide. Pavel Datsyuk and Gustav Nyquist had swipes at the puck near a prone Price later in the period, but the game stayed scoreless into the nal minutes. The Canadiens also had several chances to score the game’s rst goal during a power play late in the second but couldn’t convert despite ve shots on Howard. Plenty of Montreal fans made the trip across the Detroit River to see their team, and the sellout crowd frequently got loud with opposing chants for the Original Six rivals. Rangers 6, Islanders 5: In Uniondale, N.Y., Kevin Klein scored with 4:32 left, and the New York Rangers overcame a pair of two-goal deficits and netted three third-period goals to stun the New York Islanders. After falling behind 11 seconds in, the Rangers completed their game-long, uphill fight and beat the Islanders for the first time in four tries this season. They trail the Metropolitan Division-leading Islanders by two points and have two games in hand. Defenseman Ryan McDonagh had his first two-goal game, and Chris Kreider, Derek Stepan and Martin St. Louis also scored for the Rangers, who completed a 4-0 road trip. Stepan and St. Louis scored 1:37 apart in the third to tie it. Cam Talbot made 38 saves and improved to 5-1-1 while filling in for injured goalie Henrik Lundqvist. Hurricanes 6, Senators 3: In Ottawa, Ontario, Andrej Nestrasil had a goal and two assists and the Carolina Hurricanes defeated the Senators. Nathan Gerbe, Jeff Skinner, Jay McClement, Michal Jordan and Chris Terry also scored for the Hurricanes. Erik Condra, Mike Hoffman and Cody Ceci had goals for the Senators. After taking four one-goal leads over the first two periods, the Hurricanes got a two-goal cushion when Jordan scored his first NHL goal at 2:33 of the third period.

Dallas-based SCA Promotions announced the 2-1 decision against the former cyclist when its lawyers said Monday they had asked Texas’ 116th Civil District Court in Dallas to conrm the arbitration ruling, dated Feb. 4. The panel included a neutral chairman, who ruled in favor of SCA, and one person selected by each side. Tim Herman, a lawyer for Armstrong, insisted the ruling is contrary to Texas law and predicted it will be overturned by a judge. SCA paid Armstrong and Tailwind, the since-dissolved team management company, about $12 million in bonuses during Armstrong’s career, when he won seven Tour de France titles. Those victories were stripped after Armstrong and his U.S. Postal Service teams were found to have used banned perfor mance-enhancing drugs. SCA disputed the bonuses in arbitration in 2005, and the case produced the foundation of the doping evidence later used against him. Despite allegations of cheating, Armstrong continued to deny doping and the company settled with Armstrong and paid him $7 million in 2006. The company sued Armstrong to get its money back after Armstrong’s cheating was exposed by a report from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and a televised confession interview with Oprah Winfrey.BASKETBALLLiberty acquire Prince for Pondexter: The New York Liberty acquired Epiphanny Prince from the Chicago Sky for Cappie Pondexter in a blockbuster WNBA trade. Prince averaged 15 points for the Sky last season in helping Chicago reach the WNBA Finals for the first time in franchise history. The New York City native is thrilled for the chance to come home and play in front of family and friends. Pondexter averaged a career-low 13.2 points this past season for New York, which missed the playoffs for the second straight season. The 32-year-old guard came to the Liberty in a trade in 2010.CRICKETIreland downs West Indies in World Cup upset: In Nelson, New Zealand, the Cricket World Cup witnessed its first major upset when second-tier “associate nation” Ireland claimed a dominant four-wicket win over two-time champion the West Indies. Paul Stirling fell eight runs short of his century as Ireland raced to 307-6 to easily overhaul the West Indies’ 304-7 with 25 balls to spare in the only game of the day.CYCLINGContador plans to retire after 2016: Two-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador said he plans to retire from cycling in 2016. “I could change my mind if I have a mishap on the Tour like last year, for example,” he said, “but little else could make me change.” The 32-year-old Spaniard will start the season on Wednesday in the Vuelta a Andalucia, where he will compete against fellow former Tour winner Chris Froome. MEMORABILIAGlove used to catch Jeter HR up for auction: The glove Jeffrey Maier used to catch Derek Jeter’s tying home run against Baltimore in the eighth inning of the 1996 AL Championship Series opener at the original Yankee Stadium will be auctioned. Heritage Auction said Monday the glove will be put up for bids on Feb. 21 in New York. It did not identify the current owner, whom it said had purchased the glove from Maier. Then 12, Maier reached in front of the right-field wall and prevented Tony Tarasco from catching Jeter’s drive on Oct. 9, 1996. Umpire Rich Garcia declined to call fan interference and Bernie Williams hit an 11th-inning home run that gave the New York Yankees a 5-4 victory. OBITUARYOlympic judo champion Wim Ruska dies: Wim Ruska, the only man to win two judo gold medals at the same Olympics, has died. He was 74. The two-time world champion from the Netherlands won Olympic gold in the heavyweight division at the 1972 Munich Games and then won another gold medal in the open category. Known as “Tarzan of the tatami,” Ruska was inducted into the International Judo Federation’s hall of fame in Rio de Janeiro in 2013. He was also a seven-time European champion.TENNISVenus beats player half her age: In Dubai, United Arab Emirates, defending champion Venus Williams beat an opponent half her age, winning 6-1, 6-2 against 17-year-old Belinda Bencic of Switzerland in the first round of the Dubai Tennis Championships. Despite the age difference, Williams looked physically fitter than her opponent and dominated throughout to earn her 16th straight win in Dubai. She won the tournament in 2009, 2010 and 2014, skipping the event the other three years. “When I was 17,” the 34-year-old Williams said, “I didn’t think about what the age was of someone across the net. All you think of is I want to beat them.” In Delray Beach, third-seeded Alexandr Dolgopolov of the Ukraine won his second match of the season with a 7-6 (7-4), 6-3 victory over Russian Teymuraz Gabashvili in the first round of the Delray Beach Open. Dolgopolov, who went 14-4 during a spring swing last year that included wins over then-No. 1 Rafael Nadal and Australian Open champ Stan Wawrinka, has struggled since undergoing knee surgery in May. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to overlook any off-eld concerns surrounding Jameis Winston and take the former FSU quarterback with the rst overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, according to Mike Mayock of the NFL Network. Winston comes with a long list of pros and cons, something Mayock acknowledged during a three-hour teleconference with media members Monday. So does Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota. With that in mind, Mayock believes Winston is worth the risk. “Who is the highest rated football player on your board? My gut tells me they’re going to go with a quarterback and at this point I would guess it’s Jameis Winston just because he ts what they do more,” Mayock said. Winston and Mariota both declared for the NFL Draft before exhausting their eligibility. Winston won the Heisman Trophy in 2013, while Mariota won it while at Oregon in 2014. That is where their similarities end. “There’s a consensus top two at the quarter back position but there are contrasting issues with both of them,” Mayock said. “Obviously with Jameis Winston, my concern, No. 1, is on the eld. I think he throws too many interceptions. However, I can see everything I want on the eld on tape beyond that. He’s a pocket aware guy, he throws with anticipation and timing, which is unusual in today’s college football world. He’s tough, he gets smacked in the face and he delivers the football. “I think the bigger concern is whether or not this guy can be the face of your franchise. Let’s face it, he was the face of Florida State’s franchise and that didn’t stop him from making a bunch of bad decisions on the eld.” Mariota’s weaknesses, according to Mayock, revolve around whether his skill set will translate to the pros. He ran a spread offense at Oregon and did not have to pick up the nuances of a prostyle passing game like Winston did. “I don’t envy (Tampa Bay GM) Jason (Licht) and (head coach) Lovie (Smith) and that group and their decision,” Mayock said. The NFL Draft begins April 30. Both Winston and Mariota are expected to arrive in Indianapolis on Wednesday for the NFL Scouting Combine. Around the league: The development company that is moving quickly on a plan to build a stadium that could host a Los Angeles NFL team has given more than $118,000 in campaign contributions to officials in the city where it would be located. Campaign finance forms show the bulk of the money went to Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr., a major supporter of the stadium plan, the Los Angeles Times reported. San Francisco-based Hollywood Park Land Co. is developing the proposed 80,000-seat stadium on the site of the former Hollywood Park horse racing track. St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke has been a partner in the company since last year. Meanwhile, with one eye on the developing NFL situation up the freeway in Los Angeles, the San Diego Chargers issued their sternest warning yet to City Hall in their long-running effort to get a new stadium. Attorney Mark Fabiani, who’s handled the team’s stadium push since 2002, told the mayor’s advisory group that for the time being, anyway, there might not be a publicly acceptable solution to replace aging Qualcomm Stadium.Draft guru: Bucs should take WinstonFROM WIRE REPORTS NFL NOTEBOOKDeveloper donated to campaigns of ofcials


Page 6 SP The Sun /Tuesday, February 17, 2015 | SPRING TRAINING PREVIEWLos Angeles DodgersMANAGER: Don Mattingly (fifth season). 2014: 94-68, first place, lost to Cardinals in NLDS. TRAINING TOWN: Glendale, Ariz. PARK: Camelback Ranch. FIRST WORKOUT: Friday/Feb. 26. HE’S HERE: SS Jimmy Rollins, 2B Howie Kendrick, C Yasmani Grandal, RHP Brandon McCarthy, RHP Joel Peralta, LHP Brett Anderson, RHP Juan Nicasio. HE’S OUTTA HERE: OF Matt Kemp, SS Hanley Ramirez, 2B Dee Gordon, RHP Dan Haren, RHP Brian Wilson, RHP Chris Perez, C Tim Federowicz. GOING CAMPIN’: The Dodgers’ 94 wins were the fourth-most in the majors last season, but their playoff failure against St. Louis is what sticks in their minds. That prompted an offseason of dramatic change, starting with a new front office and several roster moves. The team traded Kemp and Gordon, while Ramirez departed as a free agent. Among the big acqui sitions are Kendrick and Rollins, along with Grandal, to help management achieve its goal of improved defense. Left-hander Clayton Kershaw led the majors in victories with 21 and ERA at 1.77 last season, when he became the first NL pitcher to sweep the MVP and Cy Young Awards since Bob Gibson in 1968. But his playoff struggles continued; he went 0-2 with a 7.82 ERA in the Division Series loss to St. Louis, something that will add to Kershaw’s motivation.San Francisco GiantsMANAGER: Bruce Bochy (ninth season). 2014: 88-74, second place, wild card, World Series champions. TRAINING TOWN: Scottsdale, Ariz. PARK: Scottsdale Stadium. FIRST WORKOUT: Thursday/Feb. 24. HE’S HERE: 3B Casey McGehee, OF Nori Aoki. HE’S OUTTA HERE: 3B Pablo Sandoval, OF Michael Morse, 2B Marco Scutaro. GOING CAMPIN’: The Giants are coming off their third World Series title in five seasons and hope to end their recent pattern of following a championship by missing the playoffs. The biggest offseason change was the loss of Sandoval, a postseason star who signed a $95 million, five-year deal with Boston. McGehee takes Kung Fu Panda’s spot at third base, but the Giants will need to find another way to fill the power void. Matt Cain missed the playoff run to undergo elbow surgery but should be healthy to start camp, adding depth to a rotation led by World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner. The Giants will watch Bumgarner closely in spring training after he became the eighth pitcher this century to throw at least 270 innings in the regular season and postseason combined. Bumgarner had two World Series wins and a five-inning save in Game 7 to give the Giants the title over Kansas City.San Diego PadresMANAGER: Bud Black (ninth season). 2014: 77-85, third place. TRAINING TOWN: Peoria, Ariz. PARK: Peoria Stadium. FIRST WORKOUT: Friday/Feb. 25. HE’S HERE: OF Justin Upton, OF Matt Kemp, OF Wil Myers, RHP James Shields, C Derek Norris, 3B Will Middlebrooks, RHP Brandon Morrow, RHP Shawn Kelley, C Tim Federowicz, SS Clint Barmes, RHP Brandon Maurer, C Wil Nieves. HE’S OUTTA HERE: OF Seth Smith, C Yasmani Grandal, SS Everth Cabrera, C Rene Rivera, RHP Joe Wieland. GOING CAMPIN’: First-year general manager A.J. Preller gave the Padres a badly needed new identity with a dizzying series of trades in December that brought in a powerful new outfield — Kemp, Myers and Upton — as well as Norris and Middlebrooks. Preller topped it off by signing Shields to a $75 million, four-year contract, the biggest free-agent deal in club history. The overhauled Padres go into spring training knowing they at least have a chance to compete with the $250 million Dodgers and World Series champion Giants at the top of the NL West. Preller still has work to do, though. He must decide what to do with two injury-prone outfielders: Carlos Quentin, who has a no-trade clause and is owed $8 million, and Cameron Maybin, who is due $7 million. Shields will lead a rotation that also includes Tyson Ross, Andrew Cashner and Ian Kennedy. Several pitchers will compete for the No. 5 spot. Middlebrooks will have to fend off Yangervis Solarte for the job at third base.Colorado RockiesMANAGER: Walt Weiss (third season). 2014: 66-96, fourth place. TRAINING TOWN: Scottsdale, Ariz. PARK: Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. FIRST WORKOUT: Saturday/Feb. 27. HE’S HERE: C Nick Hundley, RHP David Hale, RHP Kyle Kendrick, RHP Gus Schlosser, RHP John Axford, 2B Daniel Descalso, RHP Jorge Rondon, RHP Jairo Diaz. HE’S OUTTA HERE: RF Michael Cuddyer, 2B Josh Rutledge, RHP Juan Nicasio, RHP Rob Scahill, LHP Franklin Morales, RHP Matt Belisle, RHP Chris Martin. GOING CAMPIN’: The Rockies finally parted ways with longtime GM Dan O’Dowd, who presided over just four winning seasons in his 15 years in Denver, and senior vice president Bill Geivett, who had an office in the clubhouse in one of the more unusual setups in baseball. But instead of going with an outsider, owner Dick Monfort promoted Jeff Bridich from player development director to GM. Bridich, a Harvard grad who looks at baseball from more of an analytical angle, didn’t make splashy offseason moves. Instead, he concentrated on adding experience and power to his rotation (Kendrick) and bullpen (Axford, Rondon, Diaz, Hale, Schlosser). Bridich was willing to listen to offers for oft-injured stars Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez and Justin Morneau, but wouldn’t take less than full value. So, the Rockies are happy to have all three back for a fresh start in 2015. Colorado’s biggest move over the winter was signing Hundley, the veteran catcher who’s expected not only to provide better defense behind the plate than Wilin Rosario did but also accelerate the progress of a relatively young pitching staff.Arizona DiamondbacksMANAGER: Chip Hale (first season). 2014: 64-98, fifth place. TRAINING TOWN: Scottsdale, Ariz. PARK: Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. FIRST WORKOUT: Friday/Feb. 25. HE’S HERE: 3B-OF Yasmani Tomas, RHP Jeremy Hellickson, RHP Allen Webster, LHP Vidal Nuno, RHP Rubby De La Rosa, LHP Robbie Ray. HE’S OUTTA HERE: Manager Kirk Gibson, C Miguel Montero, SS Didi Gregorius, LHP Wade Miley. GOING CAMPIN’: There are changes galore for the Diamondbacks at the start of Tony La Russa’s first full season as head of the franchise’s baseball operations. Hale, most recently Bob Melvin’s bench coach in Oakland, takes over for the fired Gibson, with Dave Stewart the new GM. Many questions loom. Only two pitchers, Hellickson and Josh Collmenter, seem to be locks to make the rotation, with a large group of contenders for the other three spots. Patrick Corbin, coming off Tommy John surgery, won’t be ready until at least June. Then there’s the void at catcher, where longtime minor leaguer and last year’s backup, Tuffy Gosewisch, is the heir apparent to Montero. The other catcher on the major league roster is Oscar Hernandez, who was in Class A last season. The team signed 12-year major league veteran Gerald Laird to a minor league contract. The Diamondbacks will be looking to see if Tomas, their top offseason acquisition, can play third base. Otherwise he goes to left field, with another suspect defender in right: Mark Trumbo. NOTE: Dates of the first workout for pitchers and catchers, and the full squad. NL WEST SPRING PREVIEWS We take a team-by-team look this week at each division entering spring training. TODAY: NL West Wednesday: NL Central Thursday: NL East Friday: AL West Saturday: AL Central Sunday: AL East A few weeks ago, Derek Jeter appeared in one of those quick-hit 10-second TMZ videos in which, you know, a celebrity is surprised on the street by a guy with a camera and a random question. That Jeter responded in his typically awless, comfortable and innocuous way is not the least bit shocking. If we’ve learned anything from his two largely controversy-free decades as the face of the Yankees, it’s that he knows how to avoid missteps. So Jeter successfully bantered with the cameraman without breaking stride toward his car. Just as Jeter was getting into the backseat, the guy asked a question about the Yankees. Jeter smiled and, as he closed the car door, said, “I’m not there anymore.” Not there? That still doesn’t sound real, right? When the New York Yankees open spring training this week, for the rst time since 1992, Jeter will not be a part of it. Think about that. The last time the Yankees convened in Florida for the start of a baseball season without Jeter in their major-league camp, George H.W. Bush was in the White House, Johnny Carson was the host of The Tonight Show and a gallon of gas cost about a dollar. This is nothing unexpected, of course. It’s been a year and three days since Jeter revealed that the 2014 season would be his last. And once the season lled with farewells ended, Jeter and the Yankees moved on — seemingly with ease. While Jeter was starting an online magazine for pro athletes, the Yankees traded for his replacement, a 24-year-old from the Netherlands named Didi Gregorius. But this week is when reality hits for good. The Yankees will start training at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, and Jeter — the guy who holds as many major franchise records (eight) as Babe Ruth — will not be among the players in pinstripes. No doubt it will be weird. If you’re looking for someone to speak to the impact Jeter had on the Yankees, you can start with radio broadcaster John Sterling. He started broadcasting games in 1989 and hasn’t missed one since. Since Jeter broke into the majors in 1996, hundreds of players have come and gone, but Sterling has been there to see all of them, riding on the same ights and buses as The Captain. “For so long the Yankees have had a tremendous presence on their ballclub,” Sterling said. “For all these years, who’s been the face of their franchise? Well, it would be Jeter. Maybe a little bit of Mariano thrown in. But it’s Jeter. “Now we could have a roundtable discussion with ve people and everyone would have a different answer to who’s going to be the face of the franchise. Is it Teixeira? Is it Ellsbury? Is it McCann? Is it Tanaka? Is it Sabathia? There is an enormous leadership void.” But Sterling said it will not be weird when the Yankees take the eld and No. 2 is nowhere to be found. They will move on without Jeter, without apology. It’s what they have to do. It’s reality. “Jeter, when he signed with the Yankees, they sent him upstairs and he came on the air with Michael (Kay) and I,” Sterling said. “He must have been 18 or 19 years old, whatever he was, so I really go back that far with him. But we see this all the time in sports. At some point, they all retire. “Life will go on.” Jeter makes his full-time residence just a few miles south of the team’s facility, but it’s not clear whether he will drop in during the seven-week camp. He knows his presence will cause a stir among fans and media, and he might want to avoid that out of respect to his former teammates. Jeter’s longtime agent, Casey Close, did not respond to a message asking about Jeter’s plans. There are few comparable situations to what the Yankees are about to go through. Sure, Rivera played his entire career with the Yankees, but he wasn’t the face of the franchise — nor could he have been, given his role as a closer, someone who pitched only occasionally (and briey). On the other hand, fans have been coming to Yankee Stadium since the mid-1990s not just hoping to see Jeter play but expecting it. Heck, even commissioner Bud Selig commonly referred to him as the face of the game. Perhaps, then, the closest comparable to beginning life without Jeter is when Cal Ripken Jr. retired after the 2001 season. Like Jeter, Ripken was a big shortstop, played his career with only one team, steered clear of controver sy and left as a no-doubt rst-ballot Hall of Famer. Yet on the day of the Orioles’ rst full-squad workout without their longtime star, manager Mike Hargrove said: “I wouldn’t trade anything in the world for my experience with Cal. He’s one of a kind. But it’s time to move on.” Reached this past week, Hargrove said he didn’t mean it to sound callous. But the beauty of spring training is the clean slate it presents for what lies ahead. Everyone in the business of baseball is trained to look ahead, not behind. So it’s not the time to think about, well, a player who’s no longer with them. “You went to spring training and it felt like, I don’t want to say there was a hole, but it didn’t seem complete,” Hargrove said last week. “It was a little strange he wasn’t there as a player. But the one thing I do remember is that the feeling passed for most of us pretty quickly. “It’s not that you forget them and what they’ve done. But you’ve got business to take care of and you can’t spend a whole lot of time missing them.”By JIM BAUMBACHNEWSDAY MLB: N.Y. YankeesNew York opens spring training, life After DerekYankees A.D.

Returning from a season-long suspension for violations of baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract, the 39-year-old Rodriguez hopes to win back his old job at third base. Headley said A-Rod contacted him shortly after he reached the agree ment in mid-December. “We didn’t talk about that,” Headley said Monday after working out at the Yankees’ minor league complex. “It was just more of an introduction. I think we both care about winning. That’s the most important thing and that’s what we talked about. That (other) stuff will sort itself out. I’m not going to concern myself with that. I’m going to come out and try to do the best I can to do my job, and however that shakes out it will shake out.” Rodriguez will report to spring training ahead of the rst full-squad workout on Feb. 26. Banks’ sons fight father’s will: The twin sons of Ernie Banks asserted that his agent and caretaker coerced the Chicago Cubs great into signing a new will giving her all his assets. In a statement released by their attorney, Jerry and Joey Banks said their father was ill at the time Regina Rice had him sign a power of attorney, a health care directive and a will giving everything to her. Attorney Mark Bogen said the family will fight the will. Yankees to retire numbers of three players: The New York Yankees are retiring the uniform numbers of Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada and Bernie Williams and will honor the trio with plaques in Monument Park this season along with Willie Randolph. Pettitte (46), Posada (20) and Williams (51) will raise the Yankees’ total of retired numbers to 20. The Yankees also are expected to at some point retire Derek Jeter’s No. 2, their last single digit number in use. Williams will be honored before the May 24 game against Texas and Randolph as part of Old Timers’ Day before the June 20 game against Detroit. Posada’s ceremony will be on Aug. 22, followed by Pettitte’s the next day.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSNumbers of Pettitte, two others to be retired 50477201 Where Shopping Makes Cents Shop Charlotte
