I’ve been injured doing the following activities: walking on grass, scraping ice off the car, crossing a street, putting down luggage, walking on a sidewalk, opening a refrigerator and playing Nintendo. So the idea of riding a Segway made me nervous. What if I fall off the Segway? What if I forget I’m on a Segway, step off and roll an ankle? What if I Weeble-Wobble and actually fall down? But riding a Segway seemed fun and exciting, and therefore, I had to try it. Segway Venice is a great way to ex perience a Segway while also learning about the city of Venice. Maureen Kearns started her Segway business in 2009 in Detroit, where she continues to operate tours of the city from May to October. She brought the Segway touring company to Southwest Florida in 2011 and settled in Venice, where she offers Segway tours from Christmas to Easter. Segway Venice provides three different tours available: the Nolen Plan Tour, the Legacy Trail Ride and the Intracoastal Ride. The Nolen Plan Tour is “made for urbanites and history buffs,” states Segway Venice’s website. “We’ll discuss the history of Venice and see historic buildings, residential districts and several parks, a tenet of John Nolen’s city plan.” The tour lasts for about two hours and goes about three miles. The Legacy Trail Ride covers about four miles in 90 minutes. This is the one geared for those who want to really ride the Segway and pick up some speed. The Intracoastal Ride takes about two and a half hours, covering six miles. Ten percent of the ticket sales from this tour will be donated to the Venice Area Beautication. “We’ll ride from 41 to 41 on the island,” states the website. I recently went on the Nolen Plan Tour with tour guide Matt Clegg, who quickly put me and others at ease. Riders rst watched a safety video, which provided information about the Segway. Matt then took us outside, where Chicagoan Mark Benko bravely volunteered to step on the Segway rst. “It’s not very difcult,” he said. “You Tour Venice via Segway MURDOCK — Engineer Ken Doherty was in Minneapolis in the summer of 2007, working on the design plans for Target Field, which would become the new home of the Major League Baseball Twins team. On his return to Florida, he enjoyed an uneventful drive on Interstate 35, across the Mississippi River Bridge. But just a week later, on Aug. 1, the bridge would collapse, killing 13 people. After the tragedy, the structure that was weakened by a lack of maintenance, was replaced within a year. “It just showed vividly, for me, how state, federal and local government has been pushing this down the road,” County Commissioner Doherty said during Tuesday’s workshop discussion, which centered on Charlotte’s own capital improvement needs. Indeed, the dearth of federal infrastructure funding has reached critical proportions, with the tab now set at $3 trillion. And that is just for maintenance of existing roads and bridges. Any new construction would only add to the cost. While the county’s infrastructure network is not in danger of failing, the shortage of funds to stay ahead of the safety curve is just as daunting. The cost to fund Charlotte’s 20-year plan for capital improvements — including roads, bridges and facilities — exceeds $1 billion. Of that total, about twothirds, or $642 million, is unfunded.Funding for county’s $1B building plan falls far shortBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERFUNDING | 6 SUV crashes into home near schoolPORT CHARLOTTE — Alyssa Szeztaye said she’ll never forget the sound of the SUV smashing into the house next door. “I was sleeping and heard a bang,” the 22-year-old said after Tuesday’s crash on Midway Boulevard near Port Charlotte Middle School. “I have chills all over.” A 17-year-old boy driving a Chevrolet TrailBlazer suffered an apparent seizure, clipped the SUV in front of him, swerved to miss oncoming trafc, scraped along a tree and slammed into a home, leaving a large hole in the block exterior wall. The teen was taken by ambulance to Bayfront Health Port Charlotte. Szeztaye and her husband were among those who ran outside to the accident. They quickly deduced the driver, who was not identied by authorities, was having a seizure — they said he was convulsing and foaming at the mouth. “Seizures are strong,” By ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERCRASHES | 6PUNTA GORDA — Donald McMannis — the plaintiff in the middle of a complex lawsuit — claims his wife died from lung cancer caused by smoking addictive cigarettes made by America’s top cigarette manufacturers. But, testimony from a prominent doctor Tuesday suggests the deceased woman may not have even had lung cancer. Dr. Nicholas Iannotti, an oncologist from Florida’s west coast, told jurors that, after his lengthy review of Barbara McMannis’ medical records and other documents relevant to the lawsuit, he believed that Barbara had metastatic cancer of an unknown primary site. “What that means is the cancer spread to an organ,” Iannotti said.

Featured EventsPAID ADVERTISEMENTSBarbara Goldberg has been around music all her life. The Port Charlotte resident’s father was a pianist and composer. Her mother sang. “We had music every day in my house,” said Goldberg, 84, “I thought that’s how people lived. “I’ve always been writing. I’ve written types of music in clumps over the years, from pop to art to choral.” Now the Charlotte Chorale, for which she served as a founding member and manager for many years, will premier one of her compositions, “O Great Spirit,” at its concert, “Voices of Spirit,” at 4 p.m. March 1 at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center. It is the second of the season for the Chorale, which is in its 26th year. The theme of the concert is “music inspired by the universality of mankind’s relationship with creation,” said William Dederer, in his second year as artistic director after the Chorale’s rst director, R. Bruce MacGregor retired. Goldberg’s piece ts right in because it has a Native American setting. It is the last of her choral compositions — she holds more than 200 music copyrights — to be premiered, and she feared it would never be sung because of its degree of difculty. “There are some Indian sounds, and I used some unusual sequential harmonies,” she said. She got the idea when a paragraph in an old Methodist hymnal happened to catch her eye. “It was not a poem,” she said. “It was prose. But it struck me as beautiful, and I turned it into a poem.” MacGregor bought it for the Chorale years ago, but then decided not to do it. It languished until Dederer decided it was a good t for his concert theme. “I started looking for as wide a variety of text and composers that fell into the category,” he said. “I looked in our library, and here we had a Native American text by Barbara Goldberg. So there were three reasons: It seemed to t the concept of the concert. We owned it so we didn’t have to buy it, and Barbara is local.” He said his singers — the Chorale has about 65 — have “taken to it well. The concert is coming together beautifully,” he said. “I’m excited about this program. It’s a tough one, but they have learned it well.” Goldberg, who teaches voice and piano, is also excited. She heard it performed by the Chorale for the rst time and was moved by it. “I’m excited,” she said. “I really think it’s a good piece.”Chorale to present local musician’s compositionBy RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTO BY RUSTY PRAYBarbara Goldberg, at the piano in her Port Charlotte home, will have one of her original pieces, “O Great Spirit,” premiered by the Charlotte Chorale at its concert March 1.IF YOU GOWhat: “Voices of Spirit” When: 4 p.m. March 1 Where: Charlotte Center for Performing Arts, 701 Carmelita St., Punta Gorda Tickets: $20 for adults, $10 for students More information: or call 941-204-0033 COUNTY SEEKS VOLUNTEERSThe Charlotte County Commission is seeking volunteers for the following appointments (unless otherwise noted, submit an application and a rsum to: Public Works Department, 7000 Florida St., Punta Gorda, FL 33950; call 941-575-3600; or email MSBU-TU@ Charlotte Ranchettes Street and Drainage Unit Advisory Committee: one volunteer.

Our Town Page 4 C The Sun /Wednesday, February 18, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Good day to all! Did you know that Daniel C. Smith, instrumental in bringing educator Benjamin J. Baker to Punta Gorda, also played a signicant part in building the town’s rst African-American church? Born in Georgia in May 1865, he arrived in Trabue (Punta Gorda) as a member of Albert Gilchrist’s seven-man survey crew, just ahead of the railroad tracks in late 1885. Gilchrist was the engineer hired by Florida Southern Railway ofcials to lay out the railroad’s route from Bartow Junction to Trabue. Their arrival increased the new town’s male population to 15, eight white, seven black. Since there were no completed buildings, everyone camped near the bayfront — likely about where the vacant parcel is today between West Retta Esplanade and Harborside Avenue. “Uncle Dan,” as he came to be known by all, soon became a leader in the new community, organizing the rst religious services for African-Americans shortly after the railroad’s arrival in July 1886. They were held in a palmetto thatched pavilion he built himself. Smith also contributed generously to other civic projects beneting the new town and was an early property owner, purchasing a lot at the south end of Nesbit Street in 1887. The projects included a drainage ditch he voluntarily dug along Marion Avenue running east from King Street (U.S. 41 north) to Cochran Street, now Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and two wharves built on the bayfront for which he contributed funds and labor. Uncle Dan was also a trustee of the African Methodist Episcopal Church that built its rst sanctuary in 1889 on land donated by Isaac Trabue. Now Bethel A.M.E. Church, the current sanctuary stands at 260 East Olympia Ave. A bachelor when he arrived, that same year he purchased a small tract of land just south of town on Burnt Store Road, where he planted an orange grove and built a house for his new bride, Louisa. In addition to having a hand in establishing the rst African-American church and school, he even enrolled so the school met its required quota of students. Smith was one of 20 or so men who in December 1887 rowed across the bay and walked 30 miles north through the night to Pine Level. Their purpose was to le papers incorporating the new city of Punta Gorda. At the time, this area was part of DeSoto County and Pine Level was the county seat. However, Smith was not one of the four African-American men voting in favor of and signing the petition for incorporation, as he had not yet registered to vote. Uncle Dan died in 1935 and is interred at Lt. Carl Bailey Cemetery, where there is a histor ical marker dedication on Feb. 27 at 4:30 p.m. Visit Charlotte County History Collections online to view photographs of Dan and Louisa Smith.

Our Town Page 6 C The Sun /Wednesday, February 18, 2015 FROM PAGE ONE Szeztaye said. “I couldn’t get his foot off the gas pedal.” After someone dialed 911, Szeztaye took the driver’s phone and called “Mom.” Szeztaye said she learned the boy’s name was “Mikey” and he had epilepsy. “I just hope he’s OK,” Szeztaye said. Deputy Eric Ireland with the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Ofce was helping work the scene. He said no one was injured in the crash. Kerstin Diaz, 53, of Port Charlotte, said things were almost different. She was in her Hyundai Santa Fe heading east on Midway toward Port Charlotte Middle School, to drop a friend off at her house. It was just after 8:45 a.m. Some students were still walking to school ahead of the 9 a.m. start time, and trafc was still heavy. Diaz saw the TrailBlazer coming west and hit the back of a Nissan Murano — driven by Marge Schmitt, 72, of Deep Creek — before swerving into her lane. “He almost hit me head-on. I thought he was cutting me off to try and get into that driveway,” Diaz said at the scene, pointing. “But he kept going. He hit that wall hard.” The TrailBlazer driver was wearing a seatbelt, but no airbags deployed. One witness said it looked like the teen might have had a mark on his face from hitting the steering wheel. The Sheriff’s Ofce briey detoured trafc in the area. The damaged home was at 22129 Midway Blvd., a half mile west of the middle school. The home is vacant. “It could have been a lot worse,” Szeztaye said. “It makes you count your blessings. I went and told my mom I loved her.”Email: akreger@sun-herald.comCRASHESFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERA teen driving on Midway Boulevard Tuesday was taken to the hospital after suering a medical condition and crashing into a house. The wreck happened west of Port Charlotte Middle School. “But we don’t know where that cancer came from.” The medical doctor also said that, based on about 20 hours of studying the case, he thought Barbara did not show common symptoms of lung cancer, like coughing up blood or having trouble breathing. Senior Volunteer Judge Sherra Winesett asked for a ve-minute recess just before 4 p.m., but the break turned into a grilling of Dr. Iannotti that lasted more than 20 minutes in courtroom 4A of the Charlotte County Justice Center. Keith Mitnik — one of the Morgan & Morgan attorneys representing the plaintiff — took issue with some of the things the doctor said that may have not been in line with what he said during a deposition. Mitnik was allowed to question the defense witness without the jury present. There was some heat in the courtroom. “This is an interrogation,” said Bill Geraghty, of Shook, Hardy and Bacon, who is repre senting co-defendant Philip Morris USA in the case. “He’s bullying the witness.” Geraghty had previously told the court the defense didn’t plan to have Iannotti on the stand too long because the witness had to drive three hours home to Martin County after Tuesday’s testimony. Geraghty angrily told the judge Mitnik’s tactic was an attempt to “run out the clock.” At one point, Mitnik turned directly to Geraghty, pointed and mumbled something. The court reporter eventually threw his hands up to get everyone to calm down because too many people were talking at once and he couldn’t transcribe the dialogue. Judge Winesett allowed Mitnik’s questioning to continue, but not without at least a dozen objections from Geraghty and Kurt Weaver, of Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, who is representing the other co-defendant, RJ Reynolds Tobacco Co. In the end, Iannotti’s testimony was allowed to stand in trial. Geoffry Michael, of Arnold & Porter, part of counsel for Philip Morris, continued his ex amination of the doctor when the jury was brought back in after 4:20 p.m. Iannotti went on to say an autopsy could have determined where Barbara’s cancer started, but one wasn’t conducted. During cross-examination, Mitnik had the doctor talk about how he has testied in roughly four dozen tobacco trials, all as a witness for cigarette companies, after cigarette companies initiated a meeting with him four years ago. Closing arguments are expected later today. It’s already been determined through higher court decisions that cigarettes containing nicotine are addictive and can cause diseases, and manufacturers, aware of the potential dangers, placed them on the market anyway without adequately informing customers of the risks. In the McMannis case — the rst of its kind to be tried in Charlotte County — the plaintiff’s side is trying to prove to the jury that Barbara died from lung cancer, caused, at least in large part, by smoking cigarettes made by the defendants, and she was addicted to those cigarettes. Donald, the personal representative of Barbara’s estate, would then be entitled to a monetary award. Barbara McMannis died in 1995 in El Jobean after a lifetime of smoking. She was 59. Donald McMannis is now 83 and lives in Lake Suzy.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comDRAMAFROM PAGE 1DEFENSE SEEKS MURDER CHARGE DISMISSALIn other court news, Charlotte County’s chief assistant public defender, Toby Oonk, filed a motion late Tuesday asking the court to dismiss a second-degree murder charge against Dwayne Johnson. This comes about two weeks after Oonk filed a motion asking the judge to disqualify the State Attorney’s Office for the 20th Judicial Circuit from trying the case because he learned a privileged conversation between he and Johnson — who is in the Charlotte County Jail — had been recorded and sent to prosecutors. The matters will be discussed at a hearing Friday at the Charlotte County Justice Center. The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office said the recording issue was fixed in January, but a report released Tuesday shows a privileged conversation between Oonk and another jailed client was recorded just last week. A CCSO investigation had determined the attorney-client videos were caused by a malfunction to video chat software. But the new report released Tuesday shows the latest recording was started by the “control computer” in the jail’s control room, unlike the previous recordings. This other issue reportedly has been fixed. “The existing revenue sources are not going to be sufcient, period,” Doherty said. A large portion of the long-range CIP budget is dedicated to road projects, accounting for $422 million. Chief among these projects is Burnt Store Road Phase 2, coming in at $40.2 million, which would widen the disaster evacuation route. “That’s got to get done,” he added. But Charlotte’s needs don’t stop there, with $71.7 million in utilities projects and $196 million needed for facilities. Furthermore, there is a sense of urgency for several CIP demands. Newconstruction projects on the county’s ve-year CIP plan include the justice center and parking garage ($36.1 million), re station No. 10 ($2.3 million), and the Sheriff’s Ofce District 4 headquarters ($9.1 million) and training complex ($9.6 million) on Airport Road. “Those are the projects we’ve really got to get focused on right now,” Doherty said. Finding adequate funding, however, remains a problem. And the solution cannot be found within county borders. “This becomes more than how do we solve a local revenue issue,” said Ray Sandrock, county administrator. “It becomes a state and federal issue.” Consequently, commissioners discussed possible ways to attract more state and federal tax dollars. One avenue that may drive more state funding to Charlotte from Tallahassee would be to hire a second state lobbyist. The county currently has one attor ney on a $5,000 monthly retainer to lead its state lobbying efforts. While lauding the efforts of their local legislative delegation, including state Rep. Ken Roberson, who sits on the powerful House Appropriations Committee, commissioners said more can be done. They also said the ghting will be erce for state funding this coming legislative session, noting the 2016 budget proposed by Gov. Rick Scott includes $9.88 billion for transportation, a reduction of $235 million from the current year. Commissioner Chris Constance also had an idea on how to secure additional federal funding. By banding together with other Southern states that are also in growth mode, he said this potential “power bloc” would hold more sway in acquiring federal tax dollars for necessary infrastructure improvements correlating to the increasing population numbers.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comFUNDINGFROM PAGE 1 Poker run to benefit honor flightsFeb. 28, the D.O.G.S. motorcycle club, along with Snook Haven, is sponsoring the Second Annual Honor Flight Poker Run at local Veterans of Foreign Wars posts.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT — Ken Franckling, a veteran arts writer and freelance photographer specializing in music photography, has blended his passion and talents to produce a new book called “Jazz in the Key of Light — Eighty of our Finest Jazz Musicians Speak for Themselves.” Originally from New England, Franckling, 65, has lived in North Port since 2011. He said he has specialized in jazz journalism and music photography for over 30 years. A jazz columnist for United Press International for 19 years, he won the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award for excellence in music journalism and the Jazz Journalists Association’s Lona FooteBob Parent Award in 2003 as jazz photographer of the year. Franckling’s 160-page book, which retails for $59.95, pairs images of 80 jazz musicians with quotes from interviews he conducted with them. Arranged in separate sections by instrument, Franckling spotlights legends such as Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis and Sarah Vaughn alongside many of today’s rising stars, including Nicki Parrott, Gregory Porter and Miguel Zenon. “I wanted to do something that shared a lot of my classic photography, but do it in a way that was not your traditional coffee table book,” he said. “I took a different tack than other writers and photographers have done.” He added many of the musicians don’t talk about their music. “They talk about people who inuenced them in life, coping with their challenges in life, all sorts of things,” he said. “What I found interesting in some of the cases was three or four musicians playing the same instrument, but having a different impression or attitude about the way they make their music.” Franckling said the book has been gradually coming together over the 30 years since he rst started taking the photographs. He met resis tance from a number of publishers who thought the book would be too expensive to produce, so in the fall of 2013 he got the impetus to publish it on his own. “It’s a limited printing of just 1,000 copies,” he said. “It’s a hardcover book and the musicians’ images are black and white. The section intros are in color. And it’s broken down sectionally by instrument, starting with saxophonists then moving on to trumpeters, pianists, bassists, drummers, singers, guitarists and other instruments — sort of the way a band is set up.” “Jazz in the Key of Light — Eighty of our Finest Jazz Musicians Speak for Themselves” is available on Amazon by going to It can also be obtained locally at Coppersh Books at 1205 Elizabeth St., Suite A, in Punta Gorda.

SMITHSUN CORRESPONDENT PHOTO PROVIDED“Jazz in the Key of Light —Eighty of our Finest Jazz Musicians Speak for Themselves” is available on FRANCKLING ARCADIA — Anyone who drives anywhere on County Road 769 (Kings Highway) knows how busy it can get. And a new report shows that it’s only going to get worse in the Lake Suzy area. The DeSoto County Commission recently received a Florida Department of Transportation report called the Project Development and Environment study, which examined vehicle trafc on the road near Lake Suzy. A PD&E is an environmental and engineering process developed by the FDOT to determine social, economic, natural and physical environmental impacts associated with a proposed transportation-improvement project. County Engineer Mike Giardullo said the report shows a higher trafc ow, compared with those offered by developers looking to build in the area. The FDOT’s trafc counts estimate 8,300 average daily trips on an approximate 2-mile stretch in the Lake Suzy area. That number jumps to 14,100 daily trips on the Charlotte County border. Giardullo also pointed out the study rates the 2-mile stretch of Kings Highway just above a failing grade. The ratings are based on a grading system that ranks a road’s trafc capabilities and Levels of Service from A (excellent, little to no congestion) to F (failing, high congestion). A portion of the report highlights specic inter sections that currently are operating at near capacity. “Based on the analysis results, (the ) County Road 769 (Kings Highway) intersection with St. James Place is currently operating at LOS E, while County Road 769 intersections with S. Kingsway Circle and Courtly Manor are currently operating at LOS D during both peak periods,” the report stated. Additionally, the report found intersections with North Kingsway Circle, Southwest Glenadine Avenue, Spring Lake Drive, Agnes Street and Peace River Street currently oper ating at C levels during peak periods. The report continues that if no improvements are made to the road, many intersections would degrade to E and F levels. The FDOT estimates 2,000-3,000 daily trips would be added in the next ve years at a current growth rate of 4 percent to 5 percent. Recommendations include adding trafc signals at certain locations, as well as widening part of Kings Highway to four lanes. DeSoto County Commissioner Bob Miller said the study will help to educate the board on what effect large developments would have on the road. “This could not have come at a better time,” Miller said. “It gives us something to really sink our teeth into when these developers approach us with their trafc studies.” Although a new improvement project currently is not on the FDOT’s ve-year construction plan, Giardullo said efforts are being made to move it to the top of the county’s priority list.

Our Town Page 10 C The Sun /Wednesday, February 18, 2015 Gun bill would lead to more deathsEditor: SB176 and HB 4005 would allow students 21 years of age and older to carry concealed handguns on college campuses. Having spent over 40 years on ve campuses as a student and faculty member, I oppose this bill. This is not a Second Amendment issue; it is a public safety issue. The human brain doesn’t fully develop until the mid20s. The portion of the brain that weighs risk vs. benet is among the last to develop, leading to impulsive actions. It may be possible, during a chaotic situation with bullets ying, that a 21-year-old with trembling hands draws a weapon, carefully aims and kills a bad guy in a crowded classroom, dining hall or outdoor event. It is just as likely that innocent students and staff get caught in a crossre in the panic. There were about a dozen campus shooting deaths and a similar number of injuries, counting police shootings, on American college campuses in 2014. These are tragic incidents, but they took place on only 16 campuses, a tiny fraction of the colleges in America. They were an aberration. Do we really want armed, angry students confronting their professors about grades? Do we really want hormonal frat boys fortied with both alcohol and handguns, armed students pushing and bumping to enter an arena when the doors open for a game or concert, or students packing handguns while tailgating at a Florida-Florida State football game? HB 4005 and SB 176 will lead to more deaths on more college campuses.Tom Butler Port CharlotteStier spines, not reform, neededEditor: My response to the letter encouraging Congressman Rooney to support comprehensive immigration reform. Let’s address each of the congressman’s points. Secure the border. I agree but let’s do that rst. We need to stem the ow. Create a functional guest worker program for our farmers. We have a guest worker program. If necessary, modify the existing program rather than add more laws. Helps strengthen our economy and create opportunities for job growth. Prove it. There are millions of Americans unemployed or under-employed. Before we create “opportunities”for non-citizens let’s help our citizens. I’d like to see the statistics showing that illegals create jobs. The letter writer shows the “hoops” required to gain citizenship. Please, please address the fact that we have a path to citizenship already in place. A common argument that “they are already here” is about as valid as saying that the thief “already has your stuff” so let him keep it. I do agree with the congressman that we do not need another massive bill. What we need is legislators with the spine to uphold existing laws. Cristine A. White EnglewoodKeystone needed for sake of safetyEditor: Railroads are one of the backbones of American commerce and travel. But it is time for the Keystone XL Pipeline. The issue is safety. If you have any doubts, check out Lac Megantic, Quebec. July 6, 2013, 72 railcars containing crude oil derailed and the ensuing re killed 47 people, destroyed 30 buildings and homes in this small city. The re burned for several days, causing health hazards for miles around. Several thousand gallons of oil leaked into the soil with disastrous results. The city is still rebuild ing and it will take years to recover. Thank God this was a small city and not a large metropolitan area. In the U.S., most trains average 125 cars and are about 1.5 miles long. A train carrying crude oil has 30,000 gallons per car or about 4 million gallons per train. Several trains a day leave the oil elds for reneries in Illinois, Texas, Louisiana and reneries in the Southwest. If any of these trains crashed or derailed and burned in a metropolitan area, the loss of life and property would be tremendous. The new pipeline would have many safety features to prevent disruptions and minimize spills should they occur. For safety alone it’s time for Keystone.Richard N. Doonan Rotonda WestFrankie, Johnny and Nellie BlyEditor: I like it when Comcast ashes the number of an incoming call on the TV screen. But what if Frankie and Johnny were snuggling and the TV said Nellie Bly is calling?Donald Kaer Rotonda WestWith backdrop of snow, pitchers, catchers warm upOUR POSITION: Florida’s best advertisement: Boston buried in snow. One phrase this time of year is certain to warm the passions of any baseball fan: Pitchers and catchers report. New Englanders, fresh from their Super Bowl victory, will soon turn their attention south to the Red Sox training camp in Fort Myers. The same is true for ball fans in other northern cities — the Orioles in Sarasota, the Pirates in Bradenton, the Twins in Fort Myers. (Minus the glow of the Super Bowl win, of course.) People in those cities also have something else in common: In recent weeks, winter weather has turned bitter ly cold, snowy and windy. Sub-zero temperatures are common in February in the upper Midwest, the Northeast and New England. In some regions, it’s been particularly trying. Boston has been a real standout. Just this weekend, we saw photos on social media of wooland down-wrapped friends posing with shovels in narrow corridors of 7-foot-plus snow mounds. The claustrophobic chill permeates the spine. Naturally, this is the stuff that fuels Florida’s continual growth and prosperity. Snow. Ice. Slush. Cold. Wind. The crust of road salt and sand on the SUV. The numb toes inside the high-topped boots. The frozen ngers. The nip of a breeze at 10 below on the tip of the nose. It assures our future. Now, smug is an ugly attitude, so we’ll avoid it. (And if we are honest with ourselves, we recognize the impending downside of July’s heat and unrelenting sun and the possibility of hurricanes careering up the coastline from Cuba and the Keys.) But everyone who spends February in Southwest Florida understands their good fortune — old-timers, new-nesters, snowbirds and week-long tour ists alike. Over morning coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts, Stefano’s restaurant, the Cracker Barrel or the community clubhouse, conversation invariably turns to northern chill. Even on days that seem brisk to year-rounders, the northern weather report is the centerpiece of casual discussion. It’s as certain as clouds in Detroit, snowfall in Tonawanda and black ice in New Paltz. No smugness permitted. But we’re happy to be here and supremely condent that, as sure as icicles dripping off the roof ledge in Waukegan, more and more of our fellow Americans from frosty climes will nd their way to Florida and join us in January, February and March. While huddled in the den suffering varying degrees of cabin fever, they will read about the hot prospects on this year’s Sox, Twins, Rays and Orioles. Soon, they’ll tune in to spring training games, played in the bright sunshine before fans wearing shorts and T-shirts, palms swaying “hello” beyond the outeld fence. Bank on it. The most savvy pitchers, catchers, shortstops and coaches have already come down to warm up. Who wouldn’t?The golden touch with funding requestsEditor: Perhaps Mr. McQueen or Mr. Desquin could solicit the services of Mr. York to help secure the funds for the air show and block party. Mr. York was able to convince county commissioners to give up $250,000 for an event that took place 20-plus miles away. I’m not sure how much that event contributed to all of the charitable organizations that the block party and air show covers. Maybe the paper could print a list of all the funds and where they went and who they helped. Just a thought.Chris DiMarco Port CharlotteDon’t base law on religious beliefsEditor: My reply to those writing about humans and gay marriage: Not everyone thinks there is a God, and there is no evidence that there is one. Not everyone agrees that God has anything against homosexuality. Only some of us think whatever God there is does. Meantime, one can see that there are homosexual animals, as well as homosexual people, and it has long been known that as the population of a species gets higher, more of it becomes homosexual. So it sounds to me as if there is a God, God approves of homosexuality as a curb on over-population. No one has the right to force others to behave as if they have the same religious views as they do. No one has the right to deprive others of legal rights based on religious views.Anita L. Cole Punta GordaA darker world without the SunEditor: I have lived in metropolitan areas with good newspapers, but I love the Sun the most. The Wire is a great way to keep up on world news. In regard to local news, I really enjoy Gary Roberts succinct, informative articles. They are “easy read,” yet leaves one with the feeling that one understands the complexities of that issue. I cannot imagine not getting the Sun.Frank Unterholzner Port CharlotteMore is needed for medical researchEditor: The government should be spending money on science that nobody wants to fund. Why, the biomedical industry treats cancer with drugs, surgery and other high budget intervention. They have no incentive to nd a cure, which would destroy its $82 billion a year business. The U.S. government spends only $5.1 billion a year on cancer research. We need more funding for cures. If we really threw money at it, we might even nd out more when environmental factors help cause cancer, and then move from curing cancer to preventing it altogether. The same argument applies to other major maladies in the U.S., such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and other diseases. The sad reality is that initiativ e is more about good public relations than good science. If problems such as cancer and crime were easy to solve, we wouldn’t have a need for the government to solve them in the rst place. Sadly, private or public companies certainly aren’t going to make it happen. It will take the passage of generations of scientists and engineers to see the benet for society.Georey T. Ward EnglewoodSpare the details in Police BeatEditor: On Jan. 15, I sat down with my cup of coffee and the paper, expecting to enjoy both. However, when I got to the Police Beat, I almost vomited my cup of coffee. Since when has the Sun become a sensationalistic paper that requires a headline in bold half-inch letters, “Report: Man has sex with dog near day care.” You have to be kidding me! Now not only do I have to protect my grandchildren from the news reports, programs and their sexual innuendos in prime time, but they are too young at 6 to 10 or 12 years old to even read a newspaper. Really? You have to put that headline regarding bestiality right there in bold print. What are you trying to do? Gain readers? Disgust readers? I just do not understand the reasoning of the person who chose that headline or even the wisdom of putting the report in the paper to begin with. Do we really want to know about this? As long as the man has been charged, I do not want and I believe most people do not want the gory details. I am seriously reconsider ing my newspaper subscription. I really enjoy my coffee every morning, but do not want this type of story to ruin it. Carol L.

The Sun /Wednesday, February 18, 2015 C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINTLast Friday Charlotte County hosted the third Southwest Florida Regional Summit. The all-day event included administrators and last year’s board chairmen from Collier, Charlotte, Sarasota, Hendry, Glades and Lee counties. The focus of the group is regionalism — identifying common issues that impact all of the participating counties. Discussion often includes determining ways to partner together to make our regional voice heard at the state and federal level. Commissioner Ken Doherty and I hosted and attended Friday’s event. At the summit, topics discussed included tourism efforts, revenue issues, and legislative priorities. Tourism is one area that is on an upward swing throughout Southwest Florida. As one of the examples, a copy of the recent joint-venture shing guide was handed out (mentioned below again — available online and in print). At the conclusion of the tourism topic, the group decided to add regional tourism to their agendas and continue the discussions with their Boards. Unfunded infrastructure projects are another common matter we all work with. It is helpful to hear what those issues look like in nearby counties. During the summit, staff from Charlotte County and Lee County provided an update on FEMA coastal ood zone remapping study for Southwest Florida. Overall, the attendees acknowledged that the summit was benecial and productive, and we will continue with additional summits later this year.Unlicensed contractingCharlotte County licensing investigators recently worked with homeowners to obtain restitution totaling more than $10,000 for two homeowners in Charlotte County. The licensed contractors had taken deposits from the homeowners and in the rst case, the contractor completed the work without obtaining the permit and then was unable to obtain the permit. In the second case, the contractor had failed to commence work within 30 days of receiving a deposit of more than 10 percent of the value of the work to be done. Although unlicensed contracting continues to be the main challenge faced by Charlotte County, we do have some licensed contractors who fail to follow their obligations. To le a complaint against a contractor or report unlicensed activity, please visit our website at www. CharlotteCountyFL. gov and click “Report Unlicensed Contracting” in the “I Want To” list or call 941-743-1201.Fishing guideThe Charlotte Harbor Visitor and Convention Bureau partnered with Visit Sarasota County to produce a free, hand-held guide highlighting shing in our area. The guide provides information on saltwater and freshwater shing, the types of sh that can be caught both inshore and offshore, popular tackle and bait for this region and information on booking a charter and shing rules and regulations. In addition to colorful images, a map and detailed chart on boat and kayak launches, the top spots to sh in both areas are also included. In Charlotte County, pick up a guide at the Charlotte Harbor Visitor and Convention Bureau ofce located at 18500 Murdock Circle, Suite B104, Port Charlotte, or download a copy from www.

The construction limits will be from West Charlotte Avenue to West Virginia Avenue, West Olympia Avenue to West Marion Avenue and West Marion Avenue to West Retta Esplanade. The work will include directional boring, concrete bases and 11 decorator lights. The completion date is on or before April 1. Vehicular trafc may be restricted to one lane at times, along with limited on-street parking spaces during phases of the work. Motorists are encouraged to drive with caution while in the downtown area. The City will make every effort to allow access to the businesses affected while the improvements are underway at the same time as ensuring the project is completed on schedule.SeawallAt today’s meeting, City Council will re-address the seawall replacement project along Harborwalk West from the Waterfront Hotel to Bayfront Center. Florida Department of Transportation approved an alternative plan that allows for a 5-foot grass median between the seawall and Harborwalk, thereby avoiding the requirement for handrails on the seawall cap. A second alternative that is still under review by FDOT provides for the same grass median but also includes a seating wall on the north side of the Harborwalk. The objective for council discussion is to nalize a design alternative in sufcient time to perform the seawall replacement work from the gazebo to Bayfront prior to federal grant funds becoming available for the seawall and park improvements from the gazebo to the hotel.Mining permitsCity Attorney David Levin drafted letters to be sent to the state Department of Economic Opportunity and Charlotte County Commission regarding the county’s proposed comprehensive plan amendment expediting review of mining permits within the Shell Creek watershed. The city is requesting mine proprietors demonstrate at a public hearing that such a privilege will not cause irreparable harm if the permit is extended. City Council will discuss the city attorney’s recommendations at today’s meeting.Sales taxI gave an update of 1 Percent Local Option Sales Tax projects to the Seminole Lakes Property Owners’ Association and answered inquiries regarding the move of Muscle Car City to the former Sweetbay Shopping Center, LOOP future plans and Walmart annexation. Canine Ofcer and K-9 Spirit provided a demonstration of drug search to the attendees and addressed the partnership role between ofcer and dog.RegattaVice Mayor Kim Devine joined Commissioners Chris Constance and Stephen Deutsch, along with other county staff and representatives of the Punta Gorda Boaters Alliance to watch the nal day of racing in the Charlotte Harbor Regatta from the water.

The Sun /Wednesday, February 18, 2015 C Our Town Page 13 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS They’re the next door neighbors you’ve got to learn to live with, even if they occasionally eat your pets. Southwest Florida has become a hot spot for the wily coyote. In fact, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission gets more calls about coyotes from the area than anywhere else in the state. For example, in 2013, FWC received 223 coyote calls from Southwest Florida. “That could mean a couple of things,” said Angeline Scotten, FWC wildlife assistance biologist. “It could mean there are more coyotes here, or it could mean that there are more people seeing coyotes. The majority of the calls are pet-related. It’s no secret that coyotes predate on cats and dogs.” Coyote sightings are a relatively new development for this area. As recently as 1983, there were no coyote sightings in Florida south of Orlando. The animals are not native to Florida. During the 20th century, the species expanded its range in the West throughout the U.S. and arrived in the Panhandle in the 1960s. Coyotes thrive in urban environments because they can eat almost anything, from trash and grasshoppers, to small animals, including pets. “This is new for Florida, but it’s not new for the rest of the nation,” Scotten said. “Coyotes are in Chicago, Seattle, Phoenix, even New York.” Although coyotes also occasionally kill livestock and will eat watermelons, of which they are very fond, experts don’t consider the species an invasive exotic (harmful nonnative) like melaleuca, Brazilian pepper, pythons and lionfish. On the contrary, coyotes are beneficial in Florida, where the red wolf was a top predator until hunted to extinction in the wild by the 1980s. “It depends on who you ask,” Scotten said. “Coyotes are filling the role that the red wolf left, so they have an ecological role. Residents and pet owners might disagree. “We know coyotes prefer an urban environment because there’s more food, and they can make a better living, so they’re moving in,” Scotten said. “People are saying, “Oh, my gosh, I’ve never seen a coyote before.’” Believe it or not, coyotes are monogamous, mating for life. They don’t tend to hunt in packs. If you see more than one, it’s a family unit. They’re omnivores, which mean they’ll eat almost anything. Coyote attacks responsible for cat deathsAnything includes Garfield and Morris the Cat. The situation has become so bad that a forum was recently held in Cape Coral. “Several cats have been mutilated, and the culprit was identi fied as coyotes,” Cape Coral spokeswoman Connie Barron said. “Within any developed community, the presence of wildlife can be disconcerting. Coyotes are opportunistic: They take advantage of any food source available to them. This reinforces how important it is to keep pets from roaming.” These adaptable creatures aren’t generally a threat to humans, but in the past year freerange cats have gone missing, some found mutilated or in pieces. The remains of three that were recovered by Lee County Domestic Animals Services tested positive for coyote DNA. “They’re trying to survive like any other species is,” said Angeline Scotten, wildlife assistance biologist with the FWC. “Coyotes typically don’t target pets, but if it’s available a coyote will take advantage.” Residents are being told to secure their trash and secure their pets. This means keeping cats inside and small dogs on a short leash. The coyote will not abandon the neighborhood, but it won’t rely so much on people’s property as a food source. Officials also encouraged hazing the animal by shouting or making a ruckus to give it a healthy fear of humans. “The best way to get rid of them is not to at tract them,” said Officer Jason Criazzo, district resource coordinator with the Cape Coral Police Department. “Do that and they will move on.” Katie, 31, and Patrick Onufer, 35, moved to Southwest Florida from New Jersey. They were surprised one day to find their black-andwhite outdoor cat Jackson injured. “He’s still limping,” Kate Onufer said recently. “We think he was trying to get away. If we had known, we wouldn’t have let him out. It’s key to let new residents know about the coyotes.” For better or for worse, Southwest Florida’s urban coyotes are here to stay. And no, you can’t just shoot them just because they’re on your property though some residents have been inclined to ask. Florida statute 790.15 does forbid the discharge of a firearm in a residential area. It’s basically illegal unless you’re in imminent danger. It isn’t against the law to hunt or trap coyotes with the proper permits. The problem is trying to control the population won’t do any good. A wily evolutionary trick, coyotes compensate by increasing litter size, sometimes doubling their numbers. Scotten said millions of dollars have been spent to eradicate the coyote population in other states. These efforts failed miserably. “It’s expensive and inefficient,” Scotten said. “If you wanted to manage coyote populations, you would have to remove 70 percent of coyotes annually just to keep it so the population didn’t rise. That’s like declaring war on coyotes.” Becky Herman, 42, lost her cat Snowy in August. The family searched for a month. A neighbor five doors down also lost their feline friend.

Our Town Page 14 C The Sun /Wednesday, February 18, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS SARASOTA COUNTY — The Sarasota Memorial Hospital board just approved moving forward with plans to seek Level II trauma center designation Tuesday, but the hospital is already taking steps to ramp up emergency services. “We’ve already hired three, board-certied trauma surgeons and upgraded an emergency room to serve as a dedicated trauma room, 24/7,” said hospital spokeswoman Kim Savage. “We also have an updated resuscitation room dedicated to trauma patients.” The approval will allow the board to request $3.6 million of hospital capital to upgrade equipment, furniture and supplies to support a Level II trauma center, she said. But before getting the ofcial designation, the hospital must submit an application to the Florida Department of Health, the agency that approves and certies trauma centers. The board hopes to have the paperwork submitted by April 1. “All components of our program will be in place before we submit our application to the DOH,” Chief Executive Ofcer David Verinder said. “They usually take about a month to look over all the documents,” Savage said. If the application is approved, she said, the hospital will be issued a provisional designation. “Then, at some point next year, they will come and do an onsite visit to make sure we are meeting all the requirements,” Savage said. When someone is critically injured and rst responders decide they need more care than can be provided on scene or at the nearest hospital, they can have a patient transported to the nearest trauma center, usually via Bayite helicopter. Right now the nearest facilities are Blake Medical Center in Bradenton or Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers. SMH is in Sarasota. A Level II trauma center has dedicated facilities and staff, including a general sur geon around the clock every day for severely injured patients. “Whether it’s a gunshot wound or a car accident, the center has specialists in-house 24/7,” Savage said. Blake and SMH serve Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto counties and the state recently ruled that the area was large enough to accommodate two trauma centers, Savage said. And the need is expected to increase. “The population of our three-county area is expected to experience a lot of growth in the next ve to 10 years,” she said. “We are expecting anywhere from 500 to 1,000 trauma cases in the time period.” Bill Van Helden, deputy chief of EMS operations for Charlotte County Fire and EMS, said the center will provide another option for the critically injured who have to be transported for additional care. “A Level II trauma center is always a great tool for pre-hospital care. It clearly improves patient outcomes,” he said. “But, it would really only impact a small portion of (Charlotte) county, specically Englewood.” Savage said geography typically deter mines to what facility a patient is own. “We can safely say, for example, if I’m in an accident in Venice, they are going to take me to Sarasota,” she said. Last week, former North Port City Commissioner and hospital board candidate Dave Garofalo said the trauma center is good for South Sarasota County, but he would like to see a facility closer to North Port. “I like the idea of a trauma center, but it doesn’t make as much sense to put it right down the road from Blake,” said Garofalo, who championed a North Port hospital during his tenure on the City Commission and is a re captain in Pasco County. North Port has a free-standing emer gency room on Toledo Blade Boulevard run by SMH, and a Bayite helicopter that operates out of the city. Board chair Marguerite G. Malone said the board made the right decision in moving forward with the project. “It’s a weighty obligation but we are passionately committed to doing this,” she said. “We are so pleased to represent Sarasota County and bring an advanced level of trauma care to the people of our community.”Email: cburton@sun-herald.comSMH trauma center moving forwardBy CLINTON BURTONSARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR SUN PHOTO BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHSome motorists who travel from their neighborhoods onto Gasparilla Road (771) say there is a long wait time some days which makes it dicult due to the ongoing construction.PLACIDA — Making a three-mile trip to the grocery store was a nightmare for South Gulf Cove resident Joanne Olesen. The 14-year-resident recognizes the need for Gasparilla Road (County Road 771) to be widened from McCall Road (State Road 776) to just south of Rotonda Boulevard east. She just didn’t know why trafc was so backed up recently that it took 30 minutes to go less than ve miles. “I was worried that an ambulance or re truck could not get to our neighborhood because there was only one lane open,” she said. “We felt trapped in our development because the ag men weren’t communicating. “The trafc ow was horrible. I understand progress. We need to upgrade the road. I just think there’s a better way to do it.” Craig Emery, project manager of Halfacre Construction, said he’s heard from some unhappy residents who didn’t like the conditions caused by the $25 million, four-lane construction project. The project includes inter section improvements at State Road 776 and utility improvements between Rotonda Boulevard East and Cattle Dock Point Road. “I received calls after some fender benders,” he said. “We shut the road down for as long as the ambulance (that responded) needed. That’s something we can’t control. When we’re doing utilities work we have to shut the road down to one lane. “We have thought about limiting the time of the day that the road is only down to one lane,” he said. “For now, the majority of the utility work is done. Motorists won’t see the lane closed down to one until later in 2015.” Halfacre sends out alerts to the re departments, the School Board and the county when lanes will be shut down. Hearing the road won’t be closed to one lane like it was last week, Olesen said she and her neighbors were grateful. “I see they made a shoulder so that should help tremendously,” she said. “We were just concerned that there weren’t good alternate routes or they were out of the way. Some of my neighbors and I just thought they needed a better plan, especially during the seasonal months.” “Travelers should allow extra time to move through this area as periodic lane closures, lane shifts and trafc diversions are expected to increase as the project progresses over the next few months,” said Jeffrey A. Keyser, project manager for Charlotte County Public Works. “The Charlotte County Public Works Department reminds motorists to remain alert at all times and to exercise caution when traveling through construction zones.” Emery said the main reason for the single-lane closures is that under ground utilities including water, sewer and water reuse lines have been installed on the south end of the project near South Gulf Cove. “Utilities are being installed north of the Butterford Waterway at Marathon Boulevard,” he said. “A temporary road has been constructed to allow the crews to install the storm drain on the east side of the project, south of the Butterford Waterway and start the new roadway construction.” Clearing the right of way near the intersection of C.R. 771 and S.R. 776 has been completed. Construction of under ground utilities up to S.R. 776 will continue on the east side of the new bridge across the Butterford Waterway. The new northbound lanes and sidewalks will be from Rotonda Boulevard to the bridge at the Butterford Waterway. Construction of the new bridge is scheduled to begin this month; then the rest of C.R. 771 can be widened to the intersection of S.R. 776. This project is scheduled to be completed by September 2016. The project is currently on schedule and at 20 percent complete.Email: eallen@sun-herald.comResidents, drivers find Gasparilla Road widening a headacheBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHSTAFF WRITER B a c k P a i n ?

I didn’t WeebleWobble off, nor did anyone else. We drove our Segways along the Intracoastal Waterway, near Venice High School and residential areas while Matt educated us about the history of Venice, which included interesting stories about the circus, the train station and Mrs. Palmer who became a wealthy widow when her husband died. “She was astronomically rich,” Matt said. “She fell in love with the area. She bought 60,000 acres. She was the rst snowbird.” Matt continued to talk about how Mrs. Palmer’s inuence led to the creation of the train depot in Venice. Riders also will learn about Venice’s connection to World War II and the 9/11 attacks. It’s an interesting tour of the city on a fun mode of transportation. Segway Venice offers tours until Easter, at which time Maureen will take the eet of Segways back to Detroit for summertime tours, so be sure to book a tour before April 5.Manatee updateThis is the best time of year to see manatees at Manatee Park in Lee County, and there must have been hundreds of them there last weekend. With cool (cold) temperatures arriving today, the manatees likely will be staying near the warm waters by the Florida Power & Light plant in Fort Myers. The park allows visitors a chance to see the manatees by land, but the best view is on the water in a kayak or canoe. Visitors can bring their own kayaks, which is what I did last weekend. Kayaks and canoes also can be rented in the park. In case you were wondering, this is not a strenuous paddling adventure. You don’t have to paddle far, and frankly, you don’t even need to paddle much at all. There were people of all ages and sizes on the water last weekend. Parking is $2 an hour, or $5 for the day.

U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen’s decision late Monday puts on hold Obama’s orders that could spare from deportation as many as 5 million people who are in the U.S. illegally. In response, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said it would halt preparations for a program to protect parents of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents until further notice. In a memorandum accompanying his order, Hanen said the lawsuit should go forward and that the states would “suffer irreparable harm in this case” without a preliminary injunction. “The genie would be impossible to put back into the bottle,” he wrote, adding that he agreed that legalizing the presence of millions of people is a “virtually irreversible” action.

Some costumes were no more than a fake-fur hat topped with animal ears. The crowd was thick along St. Charles Avenue, where the route of Zulu, the day’s rst big parade, merged with that of Rex, one of the most elaborate. Rex was followed by two long “truck parades” — oats built up from atbed trailers and decorated by costumed riders. A 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman fell from different oats in a truck parade Tuesday in suburban Metairie, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Ofce said.

Florida will be short 7,000 doctors by 2025 if more residency programs are not created throughout the state to keep up with growing demand, according to a study commissioned by teaching and safety-net hospitals. Doctors trained in the specialty elds of psychiatry, general sur gery, rheumatology and thoracic surgery will likely be in the shortest supply, according to the study. Southwest Florida is one of three regions in the state where medical demand is expected to exceed supply by the highest amounts — 20 percent or more 10 years from now. “Florida has fallen behind in training enough physicians to meet our citizens’ growing need for quality health care,’’ said Steven Sonenreich, chairman of the Teaching Hospital Council of Florida and CEO of Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami, in a prepared statement. “This study provides a road map of the demand for physicians and can serve as a benchmark for Florida’s long-term planning for graduate medical residency training programs.’’ To make up for that shortfall, the study found that the state would need to create and ll more than 13,500 residency positions, or about 1,360 new slots a year Florida study warns of doctor shortageFRANK GLUCK NEWS-PRESS WRITERSHORTAGE | 4 I Z -4'sue '_.(.'t f ems! c ` 1 ,317-1!" r1r i 7


Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Wednesday, February 18, 2015 WORLD NEWS PARIS (AP) — France is tracking hundreds of people believed to belong to possible sleeper cells for terror organizations like al-Qaida or the Islamic State group, the country’s top security ofcial said. In an interview with The Associated Press, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve laid out what has become an increasingly urgent question for European intelligence services: How to trace the moment when someone transforms from a disgruntled criminal or a disaffected citizen into a terrorist, and how to block those rst steps toward radicalization. “Four hundred targets have been identied by our intelligence services that are more or less sleeper cells, afliated or in relation with al-Qaidatype organizations, that can strike like the Kouachi brothers,” Cazeneuve said in an interview late Monday. Said and Cherif Kouachi were Frenchborn brothers who killed 12 people in Paris on Jan. 7 when they stormed the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. They were shot dead by police in a confrontation two days later. Cazeneuve said he wants new measures to give intelligence services more leeway to monitor suspects’ electronic communications. He is heading to the United States on Wednesday to try and persuade Internet giants to step up and help stem extremists’ ability to use propaganda videos to recruit and indoctrinate new followers. Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Google — all major vectors for increasingly sophisticated jihadi clips targeting potential followers in the West — will be among his stops in Silicon Valley. “Ninety percent of those who commit terrorist acts fall into it after regularly consulting websites or blogs that call for or provoke terrorism,” Cazeneuve said. With the news that the suspected gunman in the deadly Copenhagen attacks this weekend may have been radicalized during a series of stints in jail — like at least two of the gunmen in the Paris attacks last month — Cazeneuve’s trip to the U.S. to strengthen intelligence sharing between governments and win over the tech rms takes on added importance. The pace of foreign ghters joining the Islamic State and other extremist groups has not slowed and at least 3,400 come from Western nations among 20,000 from around the world, U.S. intelligence ofcials say. “We won’t be able to deal with this subject by always brushing the dust under the rug,” Cazeneuve said. “At some point the dust gets thicker than the rug.” The minister said the Kouachi brothers were under French surveillance from 2011 until 2014 after the U.S. government tipped off the French about Said Kouachi’s trip to Yemen, but the monitoring produced nothing that indicated the brothers were on the verge of a deadly attack. Cherif Kouachi had served time for being part of a jihadi recruiting network and was apparently behind bars when he met the third Paris gunman, Amedy Coulibaly, a small-time criminal who became radicalized in prison. Coulibaly pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group in a posthumously released video that is still circulating among jihadis. “When you have terrorists who keep a low prole for years and then suddenly decide to act — either to obey an order from a large terrorist organization such as al-Qaida or of their own volition — then you need to be able to monitor them on a long term,” the minister said.France: Tracking 400 believed to be in terror sleeper cells CAZENEUVE | NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLDSyria troops capture villages near AleppoBEIRUT (AP) — Syrian government forces backed by Lebanese Hezbollah ghters captured several villages near Aleppo in heavy ghting Tuesday that left more than 100 dead on both sides, bringing them closer to their goal of besieging rebel-held neighborhoods in the country’s largest city, activists said. The troops were able to cut off the highway linking Aleppo with the Turkish border, according to Aleppo-based activist Amer Hassan and the Britainbased Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Syria’s state news agency said troops seized control of six villages and killed “a large number of terrorists.” The government refers to all those ghting to oust President Bashar Assad as terrorists. The Observatory said at least 65 opposition ghters and 50 soldiers and pro-government gunmen were killed in Tuesday’s clashes. UN Security Council to meet today on Libyan crisisUNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N.

At a meeting Tuesday between Egypt’s foreign minister and the ve permanent council members, “we agreed we would be working together on a draft resolution,” Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told reporters. He did not give details except to say this would be a different approach than from the current coalition that is combating IS in Syria and Iraq.Float accident at Haiti Carnival parade kills 16PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — At least 16 people were killed early Tuesday in the Haitian capital after a man on top of a musical group’s Carnival oat was shocked by high-voltage wires above the street, setting off a panic in which dozens of people were trampled, ofcials said. The accident occurred as thousands of people lled the streets of downtown Port-au-Prince for the raucous annual celebration. Video from the scene showed sparks coursing from the wire after a singer from the Haitian hip-hop group Barikad Crew was jolted by the overhead power line as the oat passed beneath it. The cable appeared to have shocked several others as well. Prime Minister Evans Paul said 16 people were conrmed dead and 78 were injured. His statement conicted with earlier reports on the number of casualties. Nadia Lochard, a coordinator for the Department of Civil Protection, had said at least 20 people were killed.Health groups: AIDS No. 1 killer of teens in AfricaNAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The 16-year-old Kenyan girl found out she was HIV-positive and pregnant at a clinic in the Korogocho slums two years ago. She still isn’t sure how she contracted the virus — her mother died from AIDS-related complications when she was 6 years old, and she slept with various men after dropping out of school years ago to provide for herself and her two younger sisters. “I have no expectations in life. All I want to do is look after my daughter (who is HIV-negative) but death is imminent and is what I am waiting for,” said the girl, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of her age and to avoid stigma in her community. Global health organizations said Tuesday that AIDS is now the leading cause of death for adolescents in Africa, and the second leading cause of death among adolescents globally. Road accidents and injury are the number one killer of adolescents globally, said Michael Hollingdale, a UNAIDS spokesman.Iraqi official: Islamic State might be harvesting organsUNITED NATIONS (AP) — Iraq’s ambassador to the United Nations asked the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday to look at allegations that the Islamic State group is using organ harvesting as a way to nance its operations. Ambassador Mohamed Alhakim told reporters that in the past few weeks, bodies with surgical incisions and missing kidneys or other body parts have been found in shallow mass graves. “We have bodies. Come and examine them,” he said. “It is clear they are missing certain parts.” He also said a dozen doctors have been “executed” in Mosul for refusing to participate in organ harvesting. Alhakim briefed the council on the overall situation in Iraq and accused the Islamic State group of “crimes of genocide” in tar geting certain ethnic groups. The outgoing U.N. envoy to Iraq, Nikolay Mladenov, told the council that 790 people were killed in January alone by terrorism and armed conict.

The Sun /Wednesday, February 18, 2015 WIRE Page 3 NATIONAL NEWS | NATIONProsecution rests in ‘American Sniper’ trialSTEPHENVILLE, Texas (AP) — Prosecutors rested their case Tuesday in the trial of a former Marine charged with killing “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle and another man. Eddie Ray Routh is accused of killing the for mer Navy SEAL and Kyle’s friend Chad Littleeld at a rural shooting range in February 2013. Before resting, prosecutors played a recorded phone call between Routh and a reporter from The New Yorker magazine in which Routh talks about the events, The Dallas Morning News reported. “I had to take care of business. I took care of business, and then I got in the truck and left,” Routh said in the call. Routh, whose attorneys are mounting an insanity defense, has pleaded not guilty. The trial has drawn intense interest, partly because of an Oscarnominated lm based on Kyle’s memoir.Derailed train burns for hoursMOUNT CARBON, W.Va. (AP) — Fires burned for hours Tuesday after a train carrying 109 tankers of crude oil derailed in a snowstorm alongside a West Virginia creek, sending reballs into the sky and threatening the nearby water supply. Hundreds of families were evacuated and two water treatment plants were shut down after dozens of the cars left the tracks and 19 caught re Monday afternoon, creating shuddering explosions and intense heat. Part of the formation hit and set re to a house, and one person was treated for smoke inhalation, but no other injuries were reported, according to a statement from the train company, CSX. “It was a little scary. It was like an atomic bomb went off,” said David McClung, who felt the heat at his home about a half-mile uphill. He said one of the explosions sent a reball at least 300 feet into the air.Princeton gets Gutenberg BibleBOSTON (Bloomberg) — Princeton University received a $300 million collection of rare books including the famed 1455 Gutenberg Bible and the first printing of the works of William Shakespeare. The 2,500-volume collection was bequeathed by philanthropist William Scheide, who died in November at age 100. The university in Princeton, N.J., has housed Scheide’s library since 1959. The collection also includes an original print ing of the Declaration of Independence, Paul Revere’s print engraving of the Boston Massacre and autograph music sketchbooks of Beethoven, Bach, Mozart and Wagner. The gift is the largest in Princeton’s history.Homebuilders confidence sagsWASHINGTON (Bloomberg) — Condence among homebuilders decreased in February to the lowest level in four months as winter weather prevented some prospective buyers from touring new developments. The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo sentiment gauge fell to 55 this month from 57 in January, according to gures issued from the Washington-based group Tuesday. The median forecast in a Bloomberg survey called for 58. The decline was led by a slump in customer trafc.Popular Mexican actress Lorena Rojas diesMIAMI (AP) — Popular Mexican soap opera and movie actress Lorena Rojas has died of cancer at age 44. Latin World Entertainment talent agency said in a statement that Rojas died Monday in Miami surrounded by loved ones. She had battled cancer since 2008. The Mexico Cityborn actress began her career in the 1990s with “Alzcanzar una Estrena.” She later had roles in “Azul Tequila,” “El Cuerpo del Deseo,” and “Pecados Ajenos.” Her most recent project was the series “Demente Criminal.” Her roles extended beyond soap operas to lms such as “Corazones Rotos,” “Papa Soltero,” “Mas que Alcanzar una Estrella” and “El Triste Juego del Amor.” ROJASNew defense chief has first day on the jobWASHINGTON (AP) — New Defense Secretary Ash Carter is vowing to make decisions about sending troops into harm’s way “with the greatest reection and care.” Vice President Joe Biden swore Carter into ofce from the White House while most of the federal government was closed because of snow. Biden says Carter faces “many tough ghts,” ranging from battling Islamic State militants to budget cuts. Carter responded by pledging three commitments. He says he will help President Barack Obama make the best possible decisions about U.S. and global security. Second, he is vowing to protect the dignity, safety and well-being of service members. And he says he will build a force for the future. CARTERPatty Hearst’s dog wins at WestminsterNEW YORK (AP) — Famed and infamous heir ess Patty Hearst was back in the news Monday after a dog she co-owns won its group at the Westminster Kennel Club show. A shih tzu called Rocket was picked as the top toy dog at Madison Square Garden. Hearst is the granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst and gained great notoriety in 1974 when she was kidnapped by the radical group the Symbionese Liberation Army. She was seen brandishing a semiautomatic rie while robbing a California bank, pictured in the group’s poster holding a machine gun and later spent almost two years in prison. Her sentence was commuted by President Jimmy Carter. President Bill Clinton gave her a full pardon. DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — A powerful winter storm dumped snow from Nashville to Nantucket, and arctic-like temperatures gripped much of the U.S. and hundreds of thousands of people lost power in the South. While some shivered, others bundled up and tried to make the best of a frustrating situation. Here’s a look at how people were handling the land of ice, snow and subzero temperatures.Roof worriesTwo New Hampshire school districts remain closed a day after schools were evacuated over concerns of snow buildup on roofs. A teacher noticed the ceiling sagging in a classroom at Sanborn Middle School in Newton on Monday and cracks were seen around the doorways of some classrooms in Epping. On Tuesday, Moharimet Elementary School in Madbury was evacuated after cracks were seen on the walls, believed to be caused by the heavy snow on the roof.Icy roadsRoads were icy and slushy, making driving difficult in many places and causing at least seven traffic deaths. There were three deaths in Tennessee, including a mother and son in Williamson County who stopped to help people in a sport utility vehicle that overturned in front of them when they were struck by a tractor-trailer. Two people were killed in Virginia as nearly a foot of snow fell in some places. In North Carolina, a woman died in a two-car crash in the northeastern part of the state. A woman was also killed Monday evening while driving across the Thomas Johnson Bridge in Calvert County, Md.Sports car in the snow?“I’ll just back up and y out,” is the strategy Brent Seney had for freeing his black convertible Mazda Miata from the snow in the nation’s capital Tuesday. Despite the thick blanket of snow along his street, Seney, 60, was condent his sporty ride could handle the roads. In fact, he planned to drive to his boat har bored at James Creek Marina in southwest Washington. “I’ll shovel the snow off, make sure it’s not frozen too much because the harbor is all frozen in,” Seney said.Trying to flyTrudging along a snowy sidewalk, Robin Winter and her daughter, Melissa, made their way to a Metro station in Washington so Mom could catch her flight home to St. Louis. Robin Winter, carry ing multiple bags and sporting a sock monkey hat, said she’d gotten into town Thursday, and had been watching the forecasts as the snow made its way across the country. “If I would have decided to fly out Sunday night instead, you never know for sure if it’s gonna really happen until it really happens,” she said. The Winters were optimistic the flight would not be canceled, though they were prepared for a delay. It appeared her flight left on time, but others weren’t so lucky. More than 1,800 flights were canceled at many airports, from Nashville, Tennessee, to the nation’s capital.Snow spreads from Nashville to Nantucket after latest storm AP PHOTOA man rides a bike past ice-coated trees and plants on Univer sity Avenue, Tuesday, in Oxford, Miss.

ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) — The tourism office of Ithaca, N.Y., is waving the white flag on winter and advising visitors to its website to check out the Florida Keys instead.’s home page displays Sunshine State vacation photos and provides links to the website for tourism information about the Florida Keys and Key West. The top of the Ithaca page reads: “That’s it. We surrender. Winter, you win. Key West anyone?” Referring to “this ridiculously stupid winter,” the Ithaca website suggests visiting the Florida Keys this week and returning “when things thaw out.”ODD NEWS NY tourism site urges visitors to go to Florida how many were seized. Rebel spokesman Eduard Basurin said hundreds of Ukrainian soldiers had surrendered in Debaltseve. Associated Press journalists were turned back by Ukrainian forces at Luhanske, a village about 10 miles north of Debaltseve and were unable to assess the status of the ght. The leader of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, one of two separatist entities, was wounded in the leg and hospitalized in the neighboring Luhansk region, Russia’s RIA-Novosti news agency quoted a Luhansk rebel ofcial as saying. Zakharchenko’s life was not in danger, the report said. The Ukrainian presidential ofce called on the European Union and NATO to condemn the Russia-backed rebels for violating the cease-re brokered by the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France last week. The war in eastern Ukraine has already killed more than 5,600 people and displaced more than a million, the United Nations said Monday. It has also left the country’s industrial heartland in ruins. On Tuesday, a deadline passed for both sides to begin pulling back heavy weapons from the front line. Rebel commander Vladimir Kononov said on Russian television that most of Debaltseve was under separatist control and urged the Ukrainian troops to surrender. “Their only choice is to leave behind weaponry, lay down arms and surrender,” he said. The announcement by the rebels came after erce ghting that appeared to be focused on Debaltseve. Both sides in the conict claim the town is on their side of the cease-re line, and the issue was not resolved under the ceasere deal. Rebel official Basurin announced in a televised briefing that the separatists “will take the initiative” and begin to pull back their big guns from some sections of the front line. He did not provide a timeline. The Ukrainian government, however, insisted on a comprehensive cease-fire before pulling back its weaponry. AP reporters saw near-constant artillery rounds fired Tuesday from Ukrainian government positions at rebel fighters around Debaltseve. Sustained shelling was heard in the area all morning, some coming from Grad rocket launchers. “The situation in Debaltseve is extremely complicated and is changing by the hour,” Ukrainian military spokesman Andruy Lysenko said late Tuesday. “Several groups of the enemy have burst into the city.” The cease-fire deal, which was to take effect early Sunday, specifies the pullout begin on the second day after the parties stop fighting. This condition has not been met, Lysenko said.UKRAINEFROM PAGE 1 for the next decade. Florida will likely have plenty of plastic surgeons and pediatricians, the study also found. Health industry insiders have warned for years that Florida faces a looming shortage of highly trained medical professionals. They have cited the fact that Florida struggles to retain young doctors — nearly 30 percent of the state’s physicians are at least 60 years old, according to the American Medical Association — and the inux of newly insured patients under the Affordable Care Act. Florida had nearly 253 active physicians per 100,000 residents in 2012, making the state 23rd in the nation for its number of working doctors, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. Statistics like those drove Lee Memorial Health System and Florida State University College of Medicine to start a family medicine residency program here last year. Studies have shown that newly minted doctors tend to stay close to the communities that hosted their residencies. The study released this afternoon found that 81 percent of doctors who completed medical school and residency training in Florida remained here. But, it noted, two-thirds of the state’s medical school graduates leave for out-ofstate residency programs. IHS Global conducted the study on behalf of the Teaching Hospital Council of Florida and the Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida.

As Zulu passed, Ashley English said she was too cold to show off her costume. “I have a corset on. You just can’t see it,” she said, pulling at the neck of her leather jacket. The corset was purple, she said, to go with her green and gold leggings. Purple, green and gold were introduced as the colors of Mardi Gras in 1872, when a group of businessmen rst crowned one of their own “Rex, king of Carnival.” English’s friend, Jon Farkas, wore a hat fashioned like a white, big-billed bird, its long, yellow legs dangling in front of his shoulders. “It’s supposed to be a pelican,” he said. Because of the cold weather, tutus were worn over jeans and many costumes, such as clowns or animals, were baggy enough to cover sweatshirts. Erin Buran of New Orleans wore a white jacket and feathery angel wings. “My angel wings have tequila in them,” she said, showing the mouthpiece of a hydration backpack covered by the wings. She said she lost her halo Sunday. Just down a side street, a man was collecting admission outside a plywood cubicle labeled “BATHROOM.” He and others at an RV repair shop had made a portable toilet of ply wood, plastic buckets, and frequently changed plastic bags, which went into a nearby trash bin. It was $2 for men, $3 for women — or $10 and $12 for an all-day pass. Why more for women? Toilet paper costs more money. On Lee Circle, Wayne Encalarde sat in a pickup truck with a commercial portable toilet tied down in the bed. A big orange parking ticket was stuck behind one windshield wiper. He said he parks there and is ticketed every Mardi Gras. “It’s worth it to have a bathroom for the kids,” he said. Partway down Zulu’s route along Jackson Avenue, contractor Mike Cochran and several younger men were giving away gumbo from the parking lot of a building under renovation. “Our main purpose — other than feeding the multitudes — is making sure nobody climbs the scaffold,” he said.CHILLYFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOGina Giacona of New Orleans throws beads from the balcony of the Royal Sonesta Hotel during Mardi Gras day festivities on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Tuesday. issued in November as within the president’s legal authority, saying the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress have said federal ofcials can establish priorities in enforcing immigration laws. The White House said the U.S. Department of Justice will le an appeal, which will be heard by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said the Justice Department was reviewing the ruling and was condent the matter would ultimately be taken up by a higher court, possibly the U.S. Supreme Court. “We have to look at this decision for what it is: It is a decision by one federal district court judge,” Holder said. The rst of Obama’s orders — to expand a program that protects young immigrants from deportation if they were brought to the U.S. illegally as children — was set to start taking effect Wednesday. The other major part of Obama’s order, which extends deportation protections to parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents who have been in the country for some years, was not expected to begin until May 19. Joaquin Guerra, political director of Texas Organizing Project, called the ruling a “temporary setback.” “We will continue getting immigrants ready to apply for administrative relief,” he said in a statement. The nonprot says it promotes social and economic equality for low to moderate income Texans. The coalition of states, led by Texas and made up of mostly conservative states in the South and Midwest, argues that Obama has violated the “Take Care Clause” of the U.S. Constitution, which they say limits the scope of presidential power, and that his executive actions would be difcult to undo once immigrants started to apply for deferred action. They also say Obama’s order would force increased investment in law enforcement, health care and education. House Speaker John Boehner said Monday’s ruling wasn’t a surprise and underscores that Obama acted beyond his authority. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell echoed the sentiments, adding that Obama has repeatedly acknowledged “he doesn’t have the authority to take the kinds of actions he once referred to as ‘ignoring the law’ and ‘unwise and unfair.’”IMMIGRATIONFROM PAGE 1 WASHINGTON (AP) — Here’s the thing about impromptu moments in politics: Often they work, sometimes they fall at, but occasionally they turn out downright awkward. Vice President Joe Biden learned that the hard way Tuesday — twice. Hosting a White House summit on violent extremism, Biden sought to draw a parallel between Minneapolis, where local leaders are working to prevent radicalization of Somali youth, and his hometown of Wilmington, Del., which Biden said also has a “large, very identiable Somali community.” “I might add, if you ever come to the train station you may notice that I have great relations with them, because an awful lot of them are driving cabs, and are friends of mine,” Biden said. His audience — a group of religious and communi ty leaders, many of them Muslim or of African descent — responded with muted, uncomfortable chuckles as Biden continued without skipping a beat. “For real. I’m not being solicitous, I’m being serious,” he said. To some, the obser vation smacked of a well-publicized gaffe that then-Sen. Biden made in 2006, when he told an Indian-American supporter that in Delaware, “you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.” Amid the result ing dust-up, Biden’s aides said he simply meant to highlight the vibrant Indian-American community in his home state. Just a few hours before musing about the preponderance of Somali cabbies, Biden was swearing in new Defense Secretary Ash Carter when he got up-close and personal with the wife of the man who now runs the most powerful military in the world. As Carter began speaking in the Roosevelt Room, Biden beckoned Stephanie Carter from across the room, then put both hands on her shoulders as her husband thanked Biden for presiding over the ceremony. Biden’s hands lingered for roughly 20 seconds until he leaned in and whispered in her ear. What, pray tell, was the vice president conding in Carter’s wife? It’s any body’s guess, but within seconds Carter reached back and put his own hand on his wife’s shoulder as he thanked his “perfect wife Stephanie” for her support along his professional path. Both incidents sparked prompt and voluminous reactions on social media, as viewers who caught the events on TV or heard about them later pondered: Just what was Biden thinking?Just Biden being Biden? VP’s odd moves AP PHOTOVice President Joe Biden stands with Stephanie Carter, wife of incoming Defense Secretary Ash Carter, right, during Carter’s swearing in ceremony, Tuesday, in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington.

Do you think I should stop making contributions to my 401(k) account for a year in order to save up an emergency fund? — Beth Dear Beth: Yes, I do. But it shouldn’t take you a year to set aside an emergency fund if you’re debt-free and making decent money at your job. Just make it part of your monthly budget plan, grit your teeth and do it! I recommend that people put off or stop investing until they are debt-free, except for their home, and have an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses in place. In some cases, depending on how much debt they have, it could take three or four years to do all this. I know it seems like a long time, but it’s really not in the grand scheme of things. Here’s the way I look at it. If you have no emergency fund, but you’re contributing to your 401(k), there’s a good chance you’ll end up cashing out your 401(k) if a large, unexpected expense comes along. When you cash out a 401(k) early, you get hit with a penalty plus your tax rate. That’s not a good plan! That’s just one of the reasons I tell people to have an emergency fund in place before they start investing! — DaveWaste of money?Dear Dave: I have a question about home warranties. Are they a waste of money if you already have a fully-funded emergency fund, with six months of expenses or more set aside? — Andy Dear Andy: In my opinion, they’re a waste of money even if you don’t have that much set aside for emergencies. I recommend an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses to cover the unexpected things that life will throw at you. This amount of cash, sitting in a good money market account with check-writing privileges, will give you easy access in the event of a financial emergency. I don’t do extended warranties of any kind, Andy. They’re not a good deal. You’re better off to self-insure against things breaking down, and put what would have been profit and marketing dollars for the extended warranty company in your own pocket! — Dave Follow Dave on Twitter at @ DaveRamsey and on the Web at www. fund shouldn’t take a yearDave Ramsey The phone rings. Pick it up and a foreign-sounding voice says, “This is Microsoft calling and your computer is sending out viruses and has been hacked and all your nancial information is being stolen. I can x it for you as a service. Please click on the start button, then type in www. When the page comes up, please read the numbers on the page. Now I have control of the computer and will show you all the viruses and problems that are on the computer.” The person calling provides what appears to be a Middle Eastern name, but says, “You can call me Tom.” Screens pop up, error messages appear, he mumbles about a network virus, needs deep cleaning, we are in danger of losing all our les and for just $399 he can clear it up, and give us a one-year service contract. May he have your credit card number please? Another scenario goes like this: We hear about this wonderful photo program called Picasa from Google. It is a free program that does a magnicent job of organizing photos, getting rid of red eye, allows cropping, contrast adjustments and many more features — very handy when trying to put sense and logic to our store of photographs. If we want to download this program, the website for it is However, many folks simply search for picasa and an entire page or more of sites appear, all offer ing a free download of Picasa. Examples of the sites that scream free Picasa but are, in fact, not Google are: lehippo. com/download_picasa, www. and picasa.en.softonic. com. None of these are actually Google, the producer of Picasa. When we download from sites other than Google, we may actually get Picasa, but also a plethora of useless malware at the same time. This malware will change our home page, alter our default search engine, create endless pop-ups, crash our Web browser and, worse yet, bring in its buddies, friends and pals. One malware even calls itself 215apps and, given enough time, will install all of them on our binary buddy. The most annoying one is Optimizer Pro. This piece of garbage constantly pops up and pretends to run a scan, shows thousands of errors, prevents our computer from displaying the desktop and offers to x everything for just $50. Optimizer Pro is a ‘PC tune-up’ type of program. Although not technically malware, it is a scam and potentially dangerous. Its big draw is it purports to clean up our registry. Even if we knew what the registry is and does, cleaning it is unnecessary and accomplishes nothing. But we can download Cleaner for free from and it does a ne job of cleaning the registry if we feel so moved. Finally, that magic over-thephone, remote-control support from a foreign country may be amazing, but surf over to www. and look in the upper left corner for a button that says “Remote Support,” and I will help with real problems on the computer.

Investments typically considered less risky, such as bonds, gold and utilities stocks, declined. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 28.23 points, or 0.2 percent, to 18,047.58. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index added 3.35 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,100.34 and the Nasdaq composite rose 5.43 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,899.27. With Tuesday’s gains, the S&P 500 is at another record high. U.S. markets were closed Monday for Presidents Day. Stock indexes had been lower most of the day, but recovered their losses on reports that progress was being made between Greece and its creditors. Greece is looking to request an extension to its loan agreement, government ofcials said Tuesday. It’s an effort to reach a last-minute deal with the country’s European lenders and avoid the danger of a euro exit. After ve years of punishing austerity, Greece wants to scrap its existing program in favor of a new one with easier terms. If no agreement is reached by the end of the month, investors expect that Greece may have little option but to default and stop using the euro currency. Most analysts expect a deal will be reached in time. “Greece’s new government wants more independence, but it doesn’t want that independence at all costs,” said Anastasia Amoroso, a global market strategist at JPMorgan Funds. “The extension is good news because it buys Greece and the eurozone time to reach a long-term resolution.” While the major stock indexes moved little Tuesday, investors made noticeable moves out of the traditional safe havens: bonds, gold and dividend-paying stocks such as utilities. The yield on the benchmark U.S. 10-year note jumped to 2.14 percent from 2.05 percent on Friday. Bond yields have been climbing sharply the last two weeks as investors become more condent that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates this year. Also investors have been using U.S. Treasurys as a safe play against Greece and euro-denominated government bonds. If a solution is found for Greece, it would make European stocks more attractive and give investors less of a reason to be holding ultra-safe U.S. government debt.US stocks edge higher ,y0 0

So he made pool safety his mission, convincing Florida county ofcials in Miami-Dade and Broward to ban high-voltage pool lights. Now, local legislators are taking up the cause in Tallahassee, Fla. with two bills led this week. Still, the loss of their son has not become any easier for Sloan, his wife Carla, and their surviving son, 5-year-old Caleb. “I don’t know if it’s ever not going to be brutal. We’re adapting,” said Sloan, of North Miami, who owns a television production company. “The further away you get from the event, at least you don’t cry every day, but it’s a different sadness as I get further away. My son is more and more a part of the past.” Bills led by Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, and Rep. Rick Stark, D-Weston, mandate underwater electrical inspections every ve years for pools at water-therapy facilities, condominiums and unlicensed child care agencies. All are currently exempt from inspections. The bills also ban any pool light over 15 volts and would make any contract to sell a residential property with a pool include a warning about pool electri cal systems. But getting those rules in place could be an uphill battle. Stark and Sobel are Democrats and the heavily Republican legislature might not even give a hearing to the legislation that might have saved Calder’s life. “We know that Democrats in our legislature face challenges getting bills passed, so right now we’re begging to have help from ‘our friends across the aisle,’ as the politicians would say,” Sloan said. The push to get new laws passed, both locally and at the state level, has been an education for Sloan, who was largely apolitical before his son died. “It’s pretty intimidating the amount of work to be done. Today’s a good day, but I’ve been up to Palm Beach County and got nowhere,” he said. “The amount of time Miami-Dade and Broward have spent on this is huge, but in Palm Beach, they shut me down after three minutes. So, some days you have great days, and some days you have really bad days.” Sloan’s next step is to lobby for a federal law.Dad’s quest for pool light safety continues | OTHER HEADLINE NEWS | FROM AROUND THE STATEMotorcyclist injured on Pine IslandFORT MYERS (NewsPress) — A St. James City man was critically injured Monday morning in a two-vehicle accident at Stringfellow Road and Snowbird Lane on Pine Island, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. A vehicle driven by Michael D. Vanderlip, 56, of Williamston, Mich., was westbound on Snowbird approaching Stringfellow and a motorcycle ridden by Uwe Herzhauser, 49, approached the intersection. Vanderlip’s vehicle hit the motorcycle when he attempted a left turn onto Stringfellow. Herzhauser was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital. Vanderlip was charged with failure to yield the right of way.Supreme Court stays execution of man who killed 4TALLAHASSEE (AP) — The Florida Supreme Court on Tuesday stayed the execution of a man who killed his ex-wife, daughter and two others until the U.S. Supreme Court determines whether a sedative used in lethal injections is effective. The decision came nine days before Jerry Correll was scheduled to be executed for a 1985 quadruple murder in Orlando. It is also a response to the U.S. Supreme Court decision last month to put executions on hold in Oklahoma while it examines concerns raised about the use of midazolam as the rst in a three-drug mix used in lethal injections.Universal Orlando says ‘No’ to bringing in waterORLANDO (AP) — For now, visitors to Universal Orlando will have to leave their water bottles at home. The Orlando Sentinel reports that visitors who showed up to the park Monday were not allowed to bring bottled water or other liquids into CityWalk or its theme parks. In an email to the newspaper, spokesman Tom Schroder said the measure is part of a review of park procedures and is not permanent. He declined to say how long the ban would last or to provide other details. The current liquid ban does not restrict baby formula or medicines, however.Tampa woman goes missing, reward up to $15KTAMPA (AP) — Tampa business owners are offering $15,000 in rewards to nd a woman who was last seen leaving an Ybor City club. Thirty-three-year-old Apryl Foster went missing Thursday. Foster’s parents said it’s out of character for their daughter to go this long without contact. Her family also says she would have never left her cats alone. Foster left her restaurant job around 11 p.m. Wednesday and went to Tampa’s club district. She was supposed to work Thursday but never showed up. FOSTER A m aj or n am e br an d ai d pr ov id er w is he s to t es t a re ma rk ab le n ew d igit al h ea ri ng i ns tr um en t in t he a re a.

St. Louis Rams (6-10) NFL: Scouting combineSpotlight shifts from sensations to prospectsThe 2014 NFL season was riddled with highlights from rookie wide receivers, starting with the New York Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr., the league’s offensive rookie of the year. But he had plenty of company. As this year’s NFL scouting combine arrives, teams will look to another draft class to try to nd potentially eye-catching wideouts capable of stepping in and immediately revving up passing games. Perhaps no one should expect a repeat of this past season’s exploits by newcomer wide receivers. But talent evaluators say there certainly are gifted players to be found among this year’s group of draft-eligible wideouts. “I do believe it’s going to be highly productive because there’s a bunch of talent and the rules and the way we play in the NFL today lend itself” to that, said Mike Mayock, a draft analyst for the league-owned NFL Network. There were ve wide receivers taken in the opening round of last year’s NFL draft, beginning with Sammy Watkins of Clemson going fourth overall to the Buffalo Bills. Mike Evans of Texas A&M was taken seventh overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Beckham, from LSU, went 12th to the Giants. Brandin Cooks of Oregon State went 20th to the New Orleans Saints and Florida State’s Kelvin Benjamin went 28th to the Carolina Panthers.

COMBINE | 4 AP PHOTOCar owner Chip Ganassi, left, and driver Kyle Larson talk in their garage during a practice session for the Daytona 500 last week. AUTO RACING: NASCAR Sprint Cup SeriesMeet Kyle Larson, NASCAR’s next big starDAYTONA BEACH — As Jeff Gordon winds down his long career, the kid who grew up idolizing him is just getting started. Kyle Larson is ready to become NASCAR’s next superstar. His sophomore season in the Sprint Cup Series begins Sunday with the Daytona 500 and there are high expectations for Larson to have a breakout year. He was decent last season during his run toward rookie of the year honors, but Larson is ready for more. On his list of goals for the year is winning his rst Sprint Cup race and making the Chase for the championship. “Last year, nobody had any expectations for me other than failing,” Larson said. “So the expectations are different this year. A little bit more pressure. I think we can run up front every week, hopefully, and be competitive and try and get a couple of wins.” The expectation of failure is a bit of an exaggeration by Larson, who has skyrocketed from sprint cars to NASCAR’s top series in just three years. His rst full season in stock cars was in 2013 and many believed team owner Chip Ganassi was rushing Larson when he promoted him to Cup last season. Nobody inside the Ganassi organization felt that way. Chris Heroy, who worked with Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Mark Martin at Hendrick Motorsports, knew he was being paired with a rare talent when he moved to Ganassi to become Larson’s crew chief. “I saw Jimmie in his prime, winning all those championships, and I’d put Kyle right there,” Heroy said of the six-time Cup champion. “Kyle is a generational talent.” The industry sure hopes Heroy and the Ganassi organization are correct.

North Port High School’s boys basketball team had already opened up a 26-point lead late in the rst half, and the visiting Patriots were trying anything they could to slow down the Bobcats. Deas couldn’t be slowed, though. The senior weaved through the defense from one baseline to the other for an easy layup, then scored again minutes later to put the nishing touches on North Port’s 39-point rst half. That’s how easy things were for the Bobcats on Tuesday night. North Port bludgeoned the Pinellas Park 58-22 in a Region 7A-3 seminal, giving the team its 15th consecutive win and setting up the program’s rst-ever regional nal appearance against Martin County on Saturday night in The Cage. “I can’t be more pleased with my guys,” North Port coach Travis Slanger said. “If I had to sum it up in one word, it’s execution.

But senior guard Abed Abu-Khadier provided a calming influence for Lehigh, scoring 16 points as Lehigh shredded Port Charlotte’s defense in the first half and pulled away for a 68-51 victory over Port Charlotte to advance to the regional finals for the second straight year. Lehigh (26-1) will play Jefferson on Saturday, which beat Mitchell 79-65 in the other semifinal. Port Charlotte (23-5) led early, but Lehigh kicked it into high gear against a usually strong Pirates defense. “We lost the game giving up 39 points in the first half. We couldn’t stop penetration and couldn’t rebound. Those were the keys,” Port Charlotte coach Bill Specht said. “The kids at halftime realized they had to do a better job, and they BOYS BASKETBALL: Lehigh 68, Port Charlotte 51 By CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENT PIRATES | 6

Dendy, Jefferson and Victor helped Florida wrap up the regular-season last week at the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark., the nal tune-up before hitting the road for the SEC Indoor Championships in Lexington, Ky. Dendy, the 2014 NCAA outdoor national champion in both the long and triple jump, jumped a personal-best of 56 feet, 6.5 inches in the triple, tops in the NCAA and World so far this year. Jefferson went a season-best and NCAA and World-leading 22.81 in her second outing in the 200 meters this season to win the event at the Tyson Invite. Victor jumped his way to a runner-up nish in the high jump, clearing 6-11, the best high-jump mark among freshmen in the SEC this year, sixth overall. Other state track-andeld athletes also earned weekly honors by their conferences. Florida State senior Colleen Quigley has been named Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Indoor Track Performer of the Week, following her record-setting performance at the David Hemery Valentine Invitational. Quigley broke both the ACC and the Florida State records in the mile on Friday at Boston University, winning in 4:29.67. In addition to new school and conference standards, Quigley posted the fth-fastest time in NCAA history. South Florida junior Matthew O’Neal was named the American Athletic Conference men’s eld athlete of the for his win in the triple jump on Saturday at the Hoosier Hills Invitational in Bloomington, Ind. O’Neal won with a jump of 51-feet-7.25 inches. Seminole named top scholar-athlete: Florida State senior midfielder Dagny Brynjarsdottir has been named the 2014 ACC women’s soccer scholar-athlete of the year as announced by commissioner John Swofford. Brynjarsdottir was one of a league-high seven Seminoles that were recognized on the All-ACC women’s soccer academic team in 2014. Brynjarsdottir, who earned her degree in sport management in December, earned ACC Offensive Player of the Year honors and was named the ACC women’s soccer championship’s MVP in 2014. Hunter, Baker receive SEC gymnastics nods: A pair of scores which were tops among the nations’ competitors last weekend led a pair of Gators to receive SEC weekly honors. The nation’s high all-around total of last weekend led senior All-American Kytra Hunter to her second SEC gymnast of the week honor of 2015. Florida’s Kennedy Baker’s 9.975 on floor exercise shares the national high on the event, helping her claim a share of her third SEC freshman gymnast of the week honor. FGCU’s Cobb earns WBCA accolade: FGCU women’s basketball senior Jenna Cobb has been selected as a member of the Women’s Basketball Coaches’ Association’s “So You Want to Be a Coach” Class of 2015, as announced by the WBCA. As a member of the class, Cobb will join the 55 other nominees from all divisions for a three-day workshop that will take place in conjunction with the WBCA Convention and the Women’s Final Four in Tampa. The WBCA “So” program looks to increase the understanding of skills needed to secure coaching positions in women’s basketball, while teaching players the competencies needed for success as a coach. RANKINGSMiami stays No. 9 in tennis rankings: The University of Miami women’s tennis team came in ninth in the nation in the ITA rankings. The Hurricanes are in the top 10 for the second straight week, after ranking ninth on last week’s list as well. They have been ranked in the top 13 of every rankings release this spring. Miami (3-2) is one of six ACC teams in the top 25, the second most of any conference. The ACC also has three teams in the top 10, tied for the most in the nation. UCF makes debut in softball polls: An unbeaten start helped Central Florida’s softball team accomplish something Tuesday it has never done in program history: make its debut in the national rankings. The Knights (8-0) are tied for 19th in the USA Today/NFCA Top 25 Poll. Later on Tuesday, the USA Softball Top 25 was released, and the Knights also entered the rankings at No. 19.Florida trio earns weekly track awards STATE COLLEGES ROUNDUP STAFF REPORTS | THIS WEEK ON TOURPGA TOURNORTHERN TRUST OPEN SITE: Los Angeles.

NOTES: The tournament is part of the European Tour for the first time. ONLINE: http://www.asiantour.comLOS ANGELES — For the Americans in the Ryder Cup, one step forward means two steps back. It’s still progress. Davis Love III is to be introduced next week as captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team, which should sound familiar. He was captain in 2012 when the ship struck an iceberg named Ian Poulter, who sparked Europe to the biggest comeback by a visiting team in the 85year history of the event. That was either the “Meltdown at Medinah” or the “Miracle of Medinah” depending on the colors of the ag. Now we have the “Mulligan in Minnesota.” The decision to bring back a captain is not unprecedented, and it’s not a bad one. Love pushed all the right buttons in 2012 at Medinah as the Americans took a 10-6 lead into the nal day. He was criticized for not playing Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley in a Saturday afternoon match when they were undefeated, but that was Ryder Cup hindsight at its best. More on that later. Love will be the eighth American to be Ryder Cup captain more than once, though it hasn’t happened in nearly three decades. The previous one was Jack Nicklaus, and the circumstances were entirely different. For one thing, Nicklaus was a winning captain his rst time in 1983. He was the obvious choice in 1987 because the Ryder Cup was held at Muireld Village, the golf course he built. On the surface, Love’s selection smacks of redemption, which would be the second straight time the Americans were using Medinah as a rallying cry. Tom Watson made that his theme at Gleneagles last year, and it didn’t work. This is more than that, or it should be. If anything, Love should have been given another shot in 2014 at Gleneagles. Instead, PGA of America president Ted Bishop wanted to leave his own mark on the matches by selecting Watson, who at 65 was the oldest captain in Ryder Cup history. Watson was the last American captain to win on European soil, and that’s still the case. He made curious choices for his picks and for his lineups, and he brought old-school thinking to a new era of players. It turned out to be a asco, right down to the closing news conference. The only thing that came out of that debacle at Gleneagles was a Ryder Cup Task Force, and there’s no way to measure if that did any good except to provide Europe with a few punch lines. Late last year, after Love was named to that 11-member task force, he said he was asked if he was off the list as a potential captain. “I would hope so,” Love said. His idea was to stay involved in other ways. He liked the idea of having Ryder Cup people involved — Steve Stricker, Tom Lehman, Scott Verplank — to build some continuity. He’s right about that. Somewhere along the way, he became the choice. Fred Couples was the only other candidate who made it clear he wanted a shot, and he was a favorite among the players, particularly Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. Couples was 3-0 as captain of the Presidents Cup, though that’s not a good comparison. Europe is strong. And the International team in the Presidents Cup might be even more dysfunctional than the American team in the Ryder Cup.By DOUG FERGUSONASSOCIATED PRESS GOLF: On The FringeCaptain from 2012 returns after meltdown at MedinahWill Love produce a Ryder mulligan?

The Sun /Wednesday, February 18, 2015 SP Page 3 | SPRING TRAINING PREVIEWSt. Louis CardinalsMANAGER: Mike Matheny (fourth season). 2014: 90-72, first place, lost to Giants in NLCS. TRAINING TOWN: Jupiter. PARK: Roger Dean Stadium. FIRST WORKOUT: Friday/Feb. 25. HE’S HERE: OF Jason Heyward, RHP Matt Belisle, RHP Jordan Walden. HE’S OUTTA HERE: RHP Shelby Miller, RHP Pat Neshek, C A.J. Pierzynski, INF Daniel Descalso, 2B Mark Ellis, RHP Justin Masterson, OF Shane Robinson, RHP Tyrell Jenkins. GOING CAMPIN’: Were it not for the shocking death of promising outfielder Oscar Taveras last fall, the Cardinals might have needed just minor tweaks coming off their 11th postseason appearance in 15 seasons. They’ll begin the process of wooing Heyward, entering the final year of his contract. The trade with Atlanta cost them Miller, and they could use a young standout as part of their core with Matt Holliday entering the last two years of his contract. Carlos Martinez gets an extended shot at winning the vacant fifth spot in the rotation, with lefty Marco Gonzales also in the mix after a strong finish to his rookie year. Jon Jay comes to camp with a two-year contract and as the starting center fielder after fighting off a challenge from Peter Bourjos last year. Walden could inherit the setup job from the departed Neshek, who was a first-time All-Star, and Belisle figures as a swing man.Pittsburgh PiratesMANAGER: Clint Hurdle (fifth season). 2014: 88-74, second place, lost to Giants in wild-card game. TRAINING TOWN: Bradenton. PARK: McKechnie Field. FIRST WORKOUT: Thursday/Feb. 24. HE’S HERE: RHP A.J. Burnett, C Francisco Cervelli, INF Jung Ho Kang, OF Corey Hart, LHP Antonio Bastardo, RHP Radhames Liz. HE’S OUTTA HERE: C Russell Martin, RHP Edinson Volquez, SS Clint Barmes, 1B Ike Davis, OF Travis Snider, LHP Justin Wilson, RHP Jeanmar Gomez, 1B Gaby Sanchez. GOING CAMPIN’: Pittsburgh proved its breakthrough 2013 was no fluke, surging to a second straight playoff berth last year. It ended with a quick exit at the hands of the World Series champion Giants. Then the Pirates re-signed starter Francisco Liriano to the richest free-agent contract in club history ($39 million over three years). Liriano anchors the rotation with Gerrit Cole, and Pittsburgh also brought back Burnett from Philadelphia to eat innings. The biggest pitching questions are at the back of the rotation, where Jeff Locke and Brandon Cumpton compete for the fifth starter’s spot while Charlie Morton recovers from hip surgery. The bullpen is searching for a little more depth, but pitching coach Ray Searage has often been able to coax the most out of his relievers. The lineup remains built around perennial MVP candidate Andrew McCutchen. Pedro Alvarez transitions from third base to first after struggling last season. The only real position battle is in right field, where Gregory Polanco, Andrew Lambo and Hart will all get a chance to impress.Milwaukee BrewersMANAGER: Ron Roenicke (fifth season). 2014: 82-80, third place. TRAINING TOWN: Phoenix. PARK: Maryvale Baseball Park. FIRST WORKOUT: Sunday/Feb. 26. HE’S HERE: 1B Adam Lind, RHP Corey Knebel, INF Luis Sardinas, RHP Chris Perez, LHP Neal Cotts, LHP Dontrelle Willis, C Juan Centeno. HE’S OUTTA HERE: RHP Yovani Gallardo, RHP Francisco Rodriguez, 2B Rickie Weeks, 1B-3B Mark Reynolds, 1B Lyle Overbay, RHP Marco Estrada, LHP Zach Duke, LHP Tom Gorzelanny. GOING CAMPIN’: How long will it take for this team to get over the bitter taste of last year’s late-season swoon? The Brewers hope to move on quickly in spring training. Instead of a complete overhaul, general manager Doug Melvin tweaked the roster that had been in first place in the NL Central for the first five months of 2014. Lind will be counted on to be the solution at first base while providing left-handed pop in a lineup where most of the power comes from the right side. Rodriguez could yet be back to close after saving 44 games last year. If not, Jonathan Broxton would get a shot to assume the closer’s role. But the Brewers ultimately believed that a full year of a healthy Ryan Braun will help cure the hitting woes that the feast-or-famine lineup slogged through in September. All eyes from the start at Maryvale will focus on whether an offseason medical procedure will finally fix the nerve damage near Braun’s right thumb that affected his swing for much of the past two years. Young right-hander Jimmy Nelson’s development will also bear watching this spring. He’s slated to rejoin the rotation after Gallardo was traded to Texas in the offseason.Cincinnati RedsMANAGER: Bryan Price (second season). 2014: 76-86, fourth place. TRAINING TOWN: Goodyear, Ariz. Park: Goodyear Ballpark. FIRST WORKOUT: Thursday/Feb. 24. HE’S HERE: LF Marlon Byrd, RHP Burke Badenhop, RHP Kevin Gregg, RHP Raisel Iglesias. HE’S OUTTA HERE: RHP Mat Latos, RHP Alfredo Simon, LF Ryan Ludwick, INF Jack Hannahan. GOING CAMPIN’: A lot of attention will be on first baseman Joey Votto, who missed 99 games last season and didn’t play after July 5 because of strained muscles above his left knee. If he’s back to his MVP form of 2010, an offense that struggled to score runs will be much better. The Reds also are looking to fill out a rotation missing Latos and Simon, who were traded in the offseason. Left-hander Tony Cingrani missed much of last season with a sore shoulder and will get a chance to win one of the spots. The other one is open to competition. The middle of the bullpen is a work in progress after a rough 2014.Chicago CubsMANAGER: Joe Maddon (first season). 2014: 73-89, fifth place. TRAINING TOWN: Mesa, Ariz. PARK: Sloan Park. FIRST WORKOUT: Friday/Feb. 25. HE’S HERE: LHP Jon Lester, C Miguel Montero, CF Dexter Fowler, RHP Jason Hammel, RHP Jason Motte, C David Ross. HE’S OUTTA HERE: Manager Rick Renteria, 3B Luis Valbuena. GOING CAMPIN’: After five straight losing seasons, the Cubs made it clear they’re ready to make a jump. Hiring Maddon after they told Renteria he would return for a second season was the first big signal, and signing Lester to a six-year deal worth $155 million erased any doubt. They have one of baseball’s top managers along with a three-time All-Star leading the rota tion. There’s a feeling of renewal and hope surrounding a long-downtrodden franchise that last won the World Series in 1908 and hasn’t captured the pennant in 70 years. Shortstop Starlin Castro and first baseman Anthony Rizzo are coming off All-Star seasons. Promising prospects Javier Baez and Jorge Soler arrived in the majors last year and there are more in the pipeline, such as slugger Kris Bryant. Their development will be crucial if Chicago is going to return to contention. NL CENTRAL SPRING PREVIEWS We take a team-by-team look this week at each division entering spring training.

MLB: Spring trainingSpring training has sprungWashington’s star-studded rotation reports to Florida. Matt Harvey continues his comeback with the New York Mets. Joe Maddon takes over the Chicago Cubs, and Russell Martin gets a closer look at Toronto’s pitching staff. While much of the Northeast and Midwest navigates bitter cold and piles of snow, spring training begins in earnest this week when pitchers and catchers le into camps in Florida and Arizona. The World Champion San Francisco Giants are one of four National League teams slated to begin on Thursday, and most of the pitchers and catchers will be in place by this weekend. The last team to win consecutive World Series was the New York Yankees from 1998-2000. The Giants will take a crack that feat after beat the Kansas City Royals in seven games for the title last fall. One spot to watch this spring is third base, where Casey McGehee replaces Pablo Sandoval after the slugger signed a $95 million, ve-year deal with Boston over the winter. Following several massive free-agent deals and blockbuster trades, there are plenty of other compelling story lines heading into baseball’s rst spring training since Rob Manfred took over as commissioner in January. The Nationals strengthened their already solid rotation by signing free agent Max Scherzer to a $210 million, seven-year contract. Now the pressure is on Scherzer to deliver on that big deal and help the reigning NL East champions advance deep into the playoffs for the rst time since the franchise moved to Washington. While Scherzer will attract plenty of attention this spring, it looks as if Tanner Roark will have to adjust to a bullpen role after he had a breakout season a year ago, winning 15 games with a sparking 2.85 ERA. The righthander is a nice insurance policy for manager Matt Williams should any of the starters get hurt. Harvey missed all of last season for his recovery from elbow ligamentreplacement surgery, and got an early start on spring training by reporting to New York’s facility about two weeks before the rst scheduled workout. He is hoping to be ready for opening day, but the Mets could decide on a slow and steady approach for the ace right-hander. It’s a brand new day for the Cubs when they report to Arizona after a banner offseason that included the addition of Maddon, who had a 754-705 record during a nine-year run with Tampa Bay. Cubs president Theo Epstein pounced on the quirky skipper after he opted out of his contract with the Rays, dumping Rick Renteria after just one season. Epstein is counting on Maddon to ease the transition of the organization’s impressive stable of prospects to the rigors of the majors. The Cubs were one of the most active teams over the winter. Same goes for Toronto, which is seeking its rst playoff appearance since it won the World Series in 1993. The crosstown White Sox have a completely different look this spring. Jeff Samardzija joins the rotation after a trade with Oakland, and closer David Robertson should stabilize the bullpen after agreeing to a $46 million, four-year deal in free agency. Catcher Russell Martin, one of the’ most prized free agents, opted for an $82 million, ve-year contract with the Blue Jays. The three-time AllStar, born in Toronto and raised in Montreal, hit .290 with 11 home runs and 67 RBIs with Pittsburgh last season, helping the Pirates to a second straight playoff berth. The Red Sox, with Sandoval and slugger Hanley Ramirez ($88 million, four-year contract), and the Padres, with righthander James Shields ($75 million, four-year deal) and a brand new outeld, are two more teams who bring big expectations to camp following an active offseason.By JAY COHENASSOCIATED PRESSPitchers and catchers report this week A-Rod still sorryBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez issued a five-paragraph handwritten apology “for the mistakes that led to my suspension” on Tuesday without detailing specifics about his use of perfor mance-enhancing drugs. Ready to report back to the New York Yankees following a season-long suspension for violating baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract, Rodriguez apologized to team officials in person during a meeting at the ballpark on Feb. 10. They suggested he hold a news conference before the start of spring training this Friday and offered the use of Yankee Stadium, but Rodriguez declined. He did not want to face media questions about his latest involvement with PEDs. He could be required to testify if his cousin, Yuri Sucart, and former University of Miami pitching coach Lazaro Collazo, go to trial on charges they committed crimes for their involvement with the Biogenesis of America drug clinic. Rodriguez admitted in court documents he used PEDs. Meanwhile, former Biogenesis clinic owner Anthony Bosch was sentenced Tuesday to four years in federal prison. Ariound the majors: Masahiro Tanaka, who missed 2 months last year while rehabilitating a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, threw for 34 minutes on level ground in his first workout of the year at the New York Yankees’ minor league complex in Tampa. Outfielder Reed Johnson agreed to a minor league contract with the Miami Marlins and has been invited to bug league spring training. Former Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants third base coach Wendell Kim died. He was 64.

Page 4 SP The Sun /Wednesday, February 18, 2015 SACRAMENTO, Calif. — After more than 1,100 wins, a trip to the NBA Finals and a Coach of the Year award in his nal season in Denver, George Karl still feels he has some unnished business in the NBA. So Karl left a cushy job as a television analyst to take over one of the league’s least successful teams when he was introduced Tuesday as the new coach of a Sacramento Kings team that has lost the second most games in the NBA over the past nine seasons. “I’ve missed the gym and I love the game,” Karl said. “I wanted one more shot to try to win a championship.” He is joining a team that is far from that level, having not made the playoffs nor had a winning record since 2005-06. Karl is the third coach this season for the Kings, taking over for Tyrone Corbin, who lasted just two months after replacing the red Michael Malone. The second in-season change comes after general manager Pete D’Alessandro committed to Corbin for the rest of the season. But after watching the team go 7-21 under Corbin following a promising 11-13 start under Malone, D’Alessandro decided to make another change to a coach he was familiar with from his time in the front ofce in Denver when Karl was on the sideline. “You get to the point where you say I know who I want to coach the team and he’s available,” D’Alessandro said. “Sometimes, you have to acknowledge what we’ve done is wrong.” He wants to spend the nal 30 games trying to build that back up and gure out what kind of players he has heading into the offseason. “I think there’s enough talent on this team to win games, enough talent to come back and connect with one another in a way that you can be a solid to good basketball team night in and night out,” Karl said. “It will take some time.” Magic interim coach Borrego to finish the season: Orlando Magic interim coach James Borrego will remain in that post at least through the end of the season. In addition, the team announced that it has added Igor Kokoskov as an assistant coach. Borrego took over after Jacque Vaughn was fired earlier this month following a 15-37 start to his third season. Borrego has gone 2-2 since taking over. Green would reportedly be interested in Pistons: Draymond Green to the Detroit Pistons? The former Michigan State star — a potential restricted free agent this summer — would be interested in signing an offer sheet with the Pistons, league sources tell’s Adrian Wojnarowski. It’s not that Green — a third-year pro from Saginaw, Mich. — wants to leave the Golden State Warriors. But, Wojnarowski wrote, that’s probably the way it’s going to go, given the Warriors’ salary structure. And if Green gets an offer that’s “too rich to match,” Wojnarowski writes, “the chance for Green to return to his beloved home state has long intrigued him, sources said. Green still spends most of his time away from the NBA in Michigan.”Karl named Kings’ third coach of seasonBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NBA NOTEBOOKKNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Devin Booker had 18 points and seven rebounds as No. 1 Kentucky picked up its defense in the second half and extended the best start in school history Tuesday night with a 66-48 victory over Tennessee.

That’s customary for the Eagles. It took a long time for Florida Gulf Coast’s women to make their debut in the Top 25, which nally happened when the Eagles were slotted at No. 22 this week. So now, the next challenge — staying on that list of the nation’s elite — awaits, and they know this is no time for a slip-up. “We can’t get satised with where we’re at,” guard Stephanie Haas said. “We need to keep working. We’ve had a bulls-eye on our back for a number of years in the conference. FGCU has always been the team everyone wants to beat, and we’re aware that they all would like to beat a Top 25 team.” It’s probably a safe assumption that opponents will be more amped to play FGCU going forward. With a 23-2 record, unbeaten in the A-Sun and riding an 18-game winning streak, the Eagles are in the drivers’ seat for the top seed and homecourt advantage for the conference tournament — with the winner there getting an automatic bid into the NCAA eld. And while FGCU’s RPI right now seems high enough that it would merit serious at-large consideration, the Eagles would prefer leaving nothing to chance. “Being a nationally ranked team does supply a little more motivation for opponents,” FGCU coach Karl Smesko said. “We already had to be ready for a team’s excellent effort. Now it may even be their best effort. It forces you to be better, where you have to be prepared every game and understand that you’re going to have to play well.” That hasn’t seemed to be an issue. The Eagles have the nation’s fth-longest winning streak behind only Princeton, Baylor, Connecticut and Chattanooga entering Tuesday, have been as high as No. 13 in the RPI and are 63-1 in league regular-season play over the last four seasons. “The next challenge,” Smesko said, “is to stay in the rankings.”By TIM REYNOLDSASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE BASKETBALL: FGCU womenFGCU surging toward tourney with 18 straight victoriesNewly ranked Eagles fighting to stay thereAP FILE PHOTOFlorida Gulf Coast’s Kaneisha Atwater is introduced before taking on Mercer in Estero. Getting a spot in the AP Top 25 was not necessarily a goal for the Florida Gulf Coast women’s team, but rather a byproduct of 18 straight wins. TORONTO — Nick Bjugstad scored the go-ahead goal on a power play early in the second period and the Florida Panthers defeated the struggling Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 on Tuesday night. Jussi Jokinen and 2008 Maple Leafs draft pick Jimmy Hayes also scored for the Panthers, who moved within two points of idle Boston for the nal playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Roberto Luongo made 25 saves, his latest solid performance in a strong season. Tyler Bozak and Phil Kessel scored for the Maple Leafs (23-30-5), who are 26th overall in the NHL standings.PANTHERS 3, MAPLE LEAFS 2Florida 1 2 0 — 3 Toronto 1 0 1 — 2 First Period—1, Toronto, Bozak 16 (van Riemsdyk, Kadri), 4:03 (pp). 2, Florida, J.Joki nen 5 (Boyes, Campbell), 19:14 (pp).

Brandon Dubinsky, Ryan Johansen and James Wisniewski also scored for the Blue Jackets, who snapped Philadelphia’s nine-game points streak. Islanders 4, Hurricanes 1: In Raleigh, N.C., backup Chad Johnson made 37 saves and four players scored to lead the Islanders. Anders Lee, Brock Nelson, Michael Grabner and John Tavares scored for the Islanders, who took a 3-0 lead in the season series between the firstand last-place teams in the Metropolitan Division. The Islanders improved to 19-3 against the Metro Division behind Lee’s 19th goal of the season, Nelson’s 16th and Grabner’s sixth for a 3-0 lead. Capitals 3, Penguins 1: In Pittsburgh, Alexander Ovechkin picked up his NHL-leading 37th goal and assisted on Joel Ward’s winner with just over four minutes remaining to lift Washington to a testy win over Pittsburgh. Ovechkin beat Marc-Andre Fleury on a breakaway in the first period. He then helped set up Ward’s first career goal against the Penguins as Washington improved to 3-0 against Pittsburgh. John Carlson added a short-handed empty-net goal with 11 seconds remaining. Devils 2, Sabres 1, SO: In Newark, N.J., Scott Gomez and Jacob Josefson scored in the shootout and Cory Schneider was beaten on both Buffalo attempts as New Jersey snapped a four-game losing streak. Patrik Elias scored for the Devils in the first period and Schneider finished with 24 saves as New Jersey ended a season-tying skid. Stars 4, Blues 1: In St. Louis, Jamie Benn had his first career hat trick and Kari Lehtonen was stingy in net again in Dallas’ rout of St. Louis.

Beckham grabbed the national spotlight with perhaps the greatest catch ever made in the sport. But his rookie season was about so much more than a single catch. He had 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in only a dozen games. Evans and Benjamin also topped 1,000 receiving yards and Watkins came close, falling 18 yards shy of 1,000. A dozen rookie wideouts had more than 500 receiving yards. Mayock, during a conference call with reporters this week, called last season’s rookie wide receivers “historically tremendous.” As for this year’s draft class at the position, Mayock said he sees three wideouts — West Virginia’s Kevin White, Alabama’s Amari Cooper and DeVante Parker of Louisville — among the consensus choices as the draft’s top 20 selections. The wide receivers could begin coming off the board, Mayock said, with the Oakland Raiders and the fourth overall pick. “I think (Cooper is) the safest pick of that group really good route runner, had over 100 catches last year, reminds me of some of those wide outs that played on the ‘Greatest Show on Turf’ with Dick Vermeil in St. Louis (like) Torry Holt, for example, that type of wide receiver,” Mayock said. “Whereas the other two, Kevin White and DeVante Parker, are bigger-bodied guys where you can throw it up and they can win jump balls. I would imagine that one of those three guys are going to be the Raiders’ pick. And I think any one of the three could be highly productive.” It is a pass-rst league with passing-friendly rules, and Mayock said that makes for an easier transition to the pro game now for young wide receivers. “These kids have been used to catching the football forever,” Mayock said. “Everything is a pass-rst league now. Number two, with the emphasis on the ve-yard (illegal contact) rule, the smaller wideouts are getting off press cover age. They know after ve yards they can run routes with impunity. Finally, the big-bodied wideouts, they don’t really have to be route runners. They’re 6-foot -5, 230 pounds. With the advent of the back-shoulder throw, they can be productive Day One. I think the league is set up to be productive, more so than ever, for rookie wide receivers and tight ends.”COMBINEFROM PAGE 1 rff rfntbbnn rfrfntttbfb bnr fbntbbrf brffntnb nnrffntnb fn r‘’“ ”” $ 49 before 7:30am $150 $ 79 7:31am-1pm $ 69 after 1pm CALL FOR TWILIGHT RATES Not valid with other offers. 7-Day Advance Tee Times (941) 423-6955 $ 49 after 1:30pm 4 Expires 2/28/15 PLAYER SPECIAL $ 269 adno=50482519

(AP) — Jurors in the murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez on Tuesday were shown surveillance video of him dismantling his phone outside a police station a day after the killing and making calls on his lawyer’s phone. Hernandez is accused in the June 17, 2013, killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating his ancee’s sister. Lloyd’s body was found in an industrial park not far from Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough. Prosecutors did not say why they thought Hernandez dismantled his phone. The trial ended early Tuesday because of a snowstorm, and the defense did not complete its cross-examination of North Attleborough police Detective Michael Elliott.PRO FOOTBALLColts’ RB pleads not guilty on pot charge: Indianapolis Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw pleaded not guilty to a marijuana possession charge after being stopped this month by state troopers on an interstate highway in western Ohio.

IndyCar hopes change keeps it on right trackBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSINDIANAPOLIS — Less than a month after the season opener was canceled, IndyCar Series chief Mark Miles outlined a new vision for scheduling Tuesday that includes more races, fit perfectly between football seasons in hopes of adding interest and fans. “We know that in the past whatever our average (television) ratings declined 30 percent after Labor Day and we know why,” said Miles, the CEO of Hulman & Co. College football and the NFL, the ratings king of sports, dominate in September and October. So rather than compete against football, Miles believes the smarter play is filling the gap. This year, IndyCar has 16 races between March 29 — the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg — Aug. 30. Last month, organizers canceled the 17th race, the opener scheduled for March 8 in Brazil. The delayed start will keep the series off the grid even longer, hurting a series that hasn’t held a race since late August. A longer season and shorter offseason would keep IndyCar on the radar, and series officials could have more flexibility to avoid scheduling conflicts such as Final Four weekend and Major League Baseball’s opening week. They also could frontload the schedule with an international race and add a warm-weather venue in the U.S., such as Phoenix. Drivers like the concept. “I think 22 (races) would be a great number,” said Scott Dixon, the threetime series champ with Chip Ganassi Racing. “But I love racing and if we do it more often, that’s great.” Things will look different at the track, too. Teams will get their new aerodynamic kits, which are expected to increase speeds, in mid-March. Ferrari shows off radical concept car idea: Ferrari unveiled a design for an aggressive -looking concept car it believes could be the future of Formula One. Ferrari posted an image of the design on its website and invited fans to comment. Ferrari failed to win a race last year, the first time since 1993, and finished fourth in the constructors’ champi onship, a massive 485 points behind Mercedes. AUTO RACING NOTEBOOKAP PHOTOA photo made available by Ferrari’s media press oce shows a rendering of a Ferrari F1 concept car. champion and face of NASCAR for the last two decades, is retiring from full-time competition at the end of the year. His departure as Larson is taking off almost makes the cycle full circle: Larson grew up a Gordon fan — he periodically posts throwback pictures on social media of him dressed head-to-toe in Gordon’s rainbow-themed gear as a child — and Gordon has spent the last three years praising Larson. Gordon has given the 22-year-old advice, and he pulled him aside after hard racing in the closing laps at Chicago in September to explain some things Larson could have done differently. Larson, once Gordon’s biggest fan, now has Gordon as the biggest Larson fan. “I want Kyle Larson to be exactly who he is now, to never change,” Gordon said. “But that’s going to be hard. I always tell guys like Kyle, who’s been catapulted into this Sprint Cup Series at a high level who have got a lot of talent, you can’t prepare for what it’s like to be famous, to do autographs, to take pictures, to win at the highest level. You don’t know what that’s going to be like.” The swell is slowly growing around Larson, who welcomed a son in December with his longtime girlfriend and is balancing fatherhood with his growing popularity. He’ll be the star of a national commercial for sponsor Target that will debut during the Daytona 500. Target reallocated some of its spending on Ganassi’s IndyCar program this season to focus on marketing Larson and three-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon. In addition to Larson’s commercial, the retailer is launching a TeamTarget. com hub on Sunday that will chronicle the season and host a series of additional videos featuring both drivers. So as NASCAR begins the transition to the younger drivers who will carry the sport for the next decade, Larson is readying himself for the ride. “I hope I’m the next big thing,” he said. “We’ll just have to wait and see, I guess. I’m sure there are a lot of other ‘next big things’ coming up. I hope I can stand out as that guy.”LARSONFROM PAGE 1 DAYTONA SPEEDWEEKSTHURSDAY 7 p.m. — NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Budweiser Duel #1, FOX Sports 1 (60 laps, 150 miles) 8:30 p.m. — NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Budweiser Duel #2, FOX Sports 1 (60 laps, 150 miles) FRIDAY 7:30 p.m. — NASCAR Camping World Truck Series NextEra Energy Resources 250, FOX Sports 1 (100 laps, 250 miles) SATURDAY 3:30 p.m. — NASCAR XFINITY Series Alert Today Florida 300, FOX Sports 1 (120 laps, 300 miles) SUNDAY 1 p.m. — NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Daytona 500, FOX (200 laps, 500 miles) adno=482738 WEEKDAYS $69am $64pm Fri. $49 before 8am Mon.-Thurs. $49 before 8:30am $39 after 2pm WEEKENDS $59am $54pm Expires 3/1/15 Accepting $5.00 Off BSC Holdersw w w . b o b c a t t r a i l g c . c o m (941) 429-0500 1350 Bobcat Tr ail North Port, FL 34288 Join now with NO initiation fee BOB TWAY DESIGN COURSE

CESSNA MANALILI, PORT CHARLOTTE GIRLS LACROSSE Manalili, a senior attacker, scored three goals in Port Charlotte’s first-ever varsity lacrosse game last Tuesday. She scored two of those goals in a 30-second span in the first half of the Pirates’ 11-6 loss to St. Stephens, the first of which will go down as the first goal in program history.

But after the game, Lemon Bay’s Kim Pinkham didn’t sound like a coach whose team is 4-0. “It was the coaching staff’s fault. We gave them one too many days off with the long weekend,” she said. “It took us too long to get going and have any intensity. Our pitchers struggled and gave up too many good-hit balls.” The Mantas scored single runs in the rst three innings, then added two more in the fourth inning on a two-run double by catcher Brooke Clemens to make it 5-0. The Pirates got two runs back in the top of the fth inning as Morgan Coslor and Kiara Monroig led off with singles and were driven home on a double by pitcher Maria Suarez. Lemon Bay was held scoreless for the only time in the game in the fth inning, but got enough runs in the bottom of the sixth to invoke the tenrun mercy rule. The Mantas loaded the bases on singles by Summer Jones and Kacyn Shirley and a walk to Clemens. Brooke Kvaternick delivered a two-run single to make it 7-2, and Lemon Bay got the next ve runs without another hit, using a combination of two walks, a catcher’s interference call, and two throwing errors. “We gave up too many hits and couldn’t get enough hits ourselves. Just some lousy, unfocused at-bats,” Pinkham said. “The good thing is a game is better than a practice to get ready for the next game. “We had to move different players to different positions and I think some of them realized that they can’t just show up and stay where they are in the lineup. They’ve got to earn their playing time.” The Pirates, who fell to 0-4, outhit the Mantas 9-8. “To me, we played a good game,” Port Charlotte coach Ryann Baker said. “It was those last couple of innings that we just got deated. “Towards the end of the game we just had walks and errors. A lot of those were routine that we should have made. But I feel like we’re getting to where we need to be.”LEMON BAY 12, PORT CHARLOTTE 2Port Charlotte 000 020 — 2 9 6 Lemon Bay 111 207 — 12 8 1 Maria Suarez and Morgan Coslar.

In his nal home tennis match, the North Port High School senior won at No. 2 singles to help the Bobcats beat Booker 5-2 — the team’s rst win in Starr’s four years. The Bobcats have one more match at home, on March 6 against Port Charlotte, but Starr will not be able to play. “Fantastic,” said coach Gary Botelho. “Very impressed. This was his last home game so everyone gave their all.” Phillip Tran, Ryan Botelho and Alan Rizk also won their singles matches. The teams played pro sets because of the weather. The Bobcats (1-2) play at Cardinal Mooney today and at Port Charlotte on Thursday.GIRLS LACROSSEFort Myers 19, Port Charlotte 16 (OT): In Port Charlotte, Alexis Smich scored eight goals and Cessna Manalili added five but Fort Myers scored three times in overtime to beat the Pirates. “They fought for every ball they could,” said coach Joanne Parker. Mandy Shelot, Katie Lockhart and Destiny Lafever also scored for Port Charlotte. The Pirates play host to Gulf Coast at 6 p.m. Friday.STAFF REPORT Extra effort carries Tarpons PUNTA GORDA — For the second consecutive night, the Charlotte High School baseball team won in extra innings, beating Riverview 8-7 in nine innings on Tuesday night. And it was the same batter who had the winning hit in Monday night’s 3-2 victory over host Lemon Bay. Austin Crespo belted the game-winning hit against the Rams, smashing a one-out single through the left side of the infield, to score Ethan Vaughn from third base with the winning run. Vaughn, who had a two-run double in the bottom of the first as the Tarpons took a 7-3 lead, started the rally with a looping double into right field. Sean Lemaster then hit a ground ball which was thrown to third base in an attempt take Vaughn out. But the throw was late and Vaughn was safe. Lemaster then stole second base. Christian Faldetta then walked to load the bases before Crespo’s game-winning hit. The Tarpons (2-1) had not scored since plating seven runs in the first off five hits, three hit batters and a walk. Dustin Smith also had a two-run single in the bottom of the first inning for the Tarpons. “Our guys were kind of rushing their swings after that,” Charlotte coach Lavell Cudjo said. “I told them later to just make contact with the ball and they did. J.J. White had a great game for us (three hits and run).” The Rams scored three runs in the top of the first inning to take a 3-0 lead before the Tarpons’s outburst in the bottom of the inning, Riverview came back on a two-run homer by Justin Cohen in the second and a two-run single by Mark Townsend in the fifth inning to tie the score. Tyler Kruse was the starting pitcher for the winners, going four innings. White then pitched the next three before Gibby Bittner took over and earned the victory. John Chappell, the third Riverview pitcher, took the loss.CHARLOTTE 8, RIVERVIEW 7Riverview 320 020 000 — 7 8 2 Charlotte 700 000 001 — 8 13 1 Alex Moore, Matt McDue (1), John Chappell (6) and Justin Cohen; Tyler Kruse, J.J.

That’s why he’s our captain. He plays a steady game and doesn’t do anything he’s incapable of doing,” Lehigh head coach Dawn McNew said. “I took advantage and did what I do best and shot the ball. They couldn’t stop it so I kept shooting,” Abu-Khadier said. Trailing 39-30 at halftime, Port Charlotte rallied in the third quarter, with Malik Dixon’s threepoint play cutting the Lehigh lead to 47-42 with 2:57 left in the period. That was as close as the Pirates got. The Lightning blew the game open in the fourth as freshman Emmitt Williams scored 11 of his game-high 19 points. Sophomore Jarvis Martin scored 11 for Lehigh, while freshman Bershard Edwards, replacing an injured Alex Debnam in the starting lineup, played strong. “A lot of the credit goes to Abed because of his demeanor, but Stef’an Strawder and Jarvis played varsity last year so they have veteran experience as sophomores,” McNew said. Keyshawn McLeod and Sean Price had 11 points to lead the Pirates, who saw seven seniors play their final game. In spite of the loss, Specht said this team was a special group. “I’m more proud of this team than I’ve been in a long time because they stuck together,” Specht said. “I tell every team I’m proud of them, but this team had different personalities and stuck by me the whole year and did what they were suppose to do.” LEHIGH 68, PORT CHARLOTTE 51Port Charlotte 12 18 12 9 — 51 Lehigh 20 19 12 17 — 68 Port Charlotte (51): Keyshawn McLeod 11, Sean Price 11, Dixon 8, Smarjesse 5, Leggett 5, Specht 3, Breton 3.

The Bobcats (21-7) scored on each of their rst eight possessions while the Patriots (17-12) missed their rst ve eld goal attempts, building a 15-4 lead by the time Rod Robinson Jr. hit Pinellas Park’s rst eld goal of the game at the 3:30 mark. Bobcats senior Malek Barber (game-high 13 points) followed Robinson’s bucket with a free throw, junior Brian Thatcher (10 points) made a layup and hit two 3s, and freshman Brandon Graff tipped in a ball at the buzzer to put North Port up 26-6 at the end of the rst quarter. “It builds tempo, and we like playing defense,” said Deas, who scored 11 points. “So when we see that we’re getting points off of our defense, we just want to play more and intensify the game.” With that kind of cushion and the raucous home crowd supporting the Bobcats — the student section featured fans in a hot dog suit, chicken suit, wrestling singlet and Ghostbusters uniform, among other things — the Patriots stood no chance of making a comeback. Pinellas Park didn’t reach double digits until the 2:47-mark of the second quarter, and they didn’t reach 20 until there were less than two minutes left in the fourth. Barber, Deas, Gene Oliver and Zefen Bruno led North Port on 12-4 run to open the second half that had a running clock instituted with 1:40 left in the third quarter. “We thought it would be a tough game, but coach said if we executed and did everything right, things could happen like this,” Deas said. “We know (the crowd) has our back whether we’re doing good or bad. So as long as we’re doing good, we know they’re rooting for us, so we have to keep going hard.” After the game had ended and the students had stormed the court in celebration, the North Port public address announcer let everyone in the gym know that Martin County had defeated higher-seeded Melbourne in the other Region 7A-3 seminal, conrming that the Bobcats would host Saturday’s nal. It was hard to tell which Slanger was more happy about: The win, or the fact that his team gets to play in front of a home crowd one more time. “Both feel pretty good,” Slanger said. “Every high school kid deserves the opportunity to play in this type of environment. That’s why they play. It’s great to see. They go through a lot, from practice to traveling throughout the year to the grind of it, and to be rewarded like this is terric.”Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or PORT 58, PINELLAS PARK 22Pinellas Park 6 5 6 5 — 22 North Port 26 13 14 5 — 58 Pinellas Park (22): Whitaker 7, Brown 7, Robinson 2, Simikic 2, Jackson 2, Hus tetovic 2.

February 18 24, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 3 I live in Venice. I’m lucky. Not that I prefer Venice over other towns, but I’m lucky because Venice has some unique events all year long. From the Venice Shark’s Tooth Festival to the Sarasota Chalk Festival hosted in Venice last year, there’s always something fun in this city. This weekend, my favorite Venice event is taking place. I love fairs and I love Italian food. So this event combines both and makes it that much more fun for me and my family. The kids love the carnival rides and I love the feast portion of it. The Italian Feast & Carnival is back Thursday through Sunday, Feb. 19-22, at the Venice Municipal Airport grounds, 150 Airport Ave. E., Venice. This event is put on by the Italian-American Club of Venice year after year. The club’s objective is to foster and encourage knowledge of the language, art, culture and history of Italy, and to foster an understanding of that cultural heritage in our country. They also participate in charitable endeavors. Something fun is always happening at the club, located at 1375 Ringling Drive, Venice. For more information about the club and the Italian Feast & Carnival, visit www., or call 941486-1492. G ABRIELA M ENDOZA Let’s Go! Editor I am glad I got my tickets weeks ago for last night’s opening of Disney’s and Cameron Macintosh’s “Mary Poppins” at Venice Theatre. Buddy — “The Buddy Holly Story” sold out all but the rst three shows earlier this season — and for good reason. It was an awesome production. I expect that may be the case again with this show — unless it is simply a complete sellout. Friday, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Venice Art Center members will be able to take a guest to preview the center’s annual Fine Arts Show & Sale which takes over the center Saturday and Sunday. Last year more than 2,000 people attended each day, purchasing a variety of artwork by member artisans. There will be prize drawings at the preview and also Saturday and Sunday, when the center will be open from 10a.m. to 4 p.m. Food will be available for sale in one of the outdoor courtyard areas, as virtually every corner of the VAC will be filled with artists and their work. Admission is free Saturday and Sunday and on Friday to members only and their guests. The center is at 390 S. Nokomis Ave., on the island in Venice. Good neighbor that it is on the Cultural Campus which includes the library, Triangle Inn and Venice Community Center, VAC is hosting several library events displaced while the library undergoes some interior repairs. If you can’t nd your meeting at the library, ask if it has been moved to the VAC. Coming up next week at the VAC is the opening of a major show by artist Karen Hitt. It will feature work created on her 15,000-mile cross-country journey to study and paint. More than one person has suggested her journey is perfect movie fodder. See what you think Wednesday and Friday next week. Her ocial opening will be Friday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., but Karen also will be present at the VAC next Wednesday with Dick and Julia Hyman prior to the Feb. 28 debut performance of his new concerto written for the Venice Symphony. Read more about the Hymans in this column next week. ‘Like’ us on SunCoastLetsGoYour weekly guide to entertainment, travel and arts in Southwest Florida.

February 18 24, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 5 EVENTS THIS WEEKIt’s a great stop for the big top to set up shop. After years of performing across from Ed Smith Stadium, Circus Sarasota has moved its 2015 winter show —called “Fearless” —to Nathan Benderson Park, just south of the mall at University Town Center. Circus founder and CEO Pedro Reis said the move was a smart and timely one. “We’ve been looking for a new location for quite a while,” Reis said. “When spring training starts, we always had to move o the lot across from Ed Smith to allow for parking for Orioles games. We wanted to extend our performances into March and we couldn’t do it there. So when the opportunity came to move to the UTC mall, we pursued it. This gives us much more exibility with our schedule.” Circus headliner Nik Wallenda agreed. “I’m close friends with the Benderson family and I do all my training over at Benderson Park for all my TV specials,” Wallenda said. “I just knew it would be a great location for our show.” Wallenda, world renowned as King of the High Wire, has conquered Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon and the skyscrapers of Chicago. As Circus Sarasota’s biggest star, he and his troupe re-enact the iconic Wallenda family trademark, the Seven-Person Pyramid. As an added touch of excitement for this year’s circus, the pyramid includes three former students from Sarasota’s Sailor Circus Academy as well as Wallenda’s mother, Delilah, who has come out of retirement to rejoin the act. “She hasn’t performed the Seven-Person Pyramid since 2001,” he said. “My sister has been on top of the pyramid for many years now, and I thought it would be fun to have my mom come back. And the crowds have really embraced it.” Reis said the move to Benderson Park came just in time because Circus Sarasota is drawing larger crowds. “We’ve got a lot of new acts from Europe,” he said. “Quite a few of these are debuting for the rst time in America. We’re here through Feb. 22. Our rst weekend was completely sold out and tickets now are very limited. We’re getting a lot of visibility here as well. People see the tent from the freeway and people shopping at the mall see it, too. We nd we’re getting a lot more people coming from the BradentonLakewood Ranch-Manatee area.” As for Wallenda, he’s got some interesting plans after the big top comes down. “I’m working on a lot of big events,” he said. “Everything from a huge tightrope walk in Abu Dhabi to the longest walk of my career this summer at the Wisconsin State Fair.” Circus Sarasota ticket prices range from $12 to $50 and can be purchased through the Circus Sarasota website — —or by calling the box oce at 941-355-9805.Nik Wallenda headlines for this year’s Circus Sarasota at Benderson ParkBy STEVEN J.

6 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V February 18 24, 2015 UPCOMING EVENTSWestcoast Black Theatre Troupe’s season continues with “Jazz Hot Mamas,” a world premiere by WBTT founder and artistic director Nate Jacobs. In this siz zling musical revue, Jacobs salutes the great female performers of the jazz era, including Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Etta Jones and Peggy Lee. They rose to stardom, broke barriers and left a legacy few can match. Their phenomenal voices, style and grace won over audiences around the world. Starring in the show are Matelyn Alicia, Naarai Jacobs, Kenessa “Neyce” Pierre and Teresa Stanley, who returns to Sarasota by way of Broadway, where she played “Justice/Mother” in Rock of Ages. “Throughout WBTT’s 15-year history, we’ve covered a variety of musical genres in our shows, from soul and gospel to pop and rock ‘n’ roll. We’ve performed many shows that feature male superstars, but hardly any about women celebrities and none about the wonderful women jazz singers of the s and s,” said WBTT’s founder and artistic director, Nate Jacobs. “The artists we’re featuring are legends who inuenced the international music world with their dynamic voices and distinctive style. We are proud to honor their legacy through this original show.” Several months ago, WBTT had already sold most of its available seats for “Jazz Hot Mamas” and decided to extend the run another week. The theater has also just added two Sunday evening shows, on March 22 and March 29. “We guessed this might be our hottest ticket of the season but we are still amazed at how quickly we sold out of our available inventory,” said Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe executive director Richard M. Parison Jr. “We are condent local audiences will absolutely love this show — we are thrilled by the level of excitement already surrounding it.” The Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe of Florida Inc. is the only professional black theater company on Florida’s West Coast. The mission is to produce plays that promote and celebrate the African-American experience and attract diverse audiences while using its productions as a vehicle for supporting AfricanAmerican artists and building the self-esteem of African-American youth. “Jazz Hot Mamas” runs Feb. 25 through April 4. Tickets are $29.50 general admission, $16.50 students; call the box oce at 941-366-1505 or visit for show times and to purchase tickets.Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe presents ‘Jazz Hot Mamas’ ARTIST BIOSMatelyn Alicia, a native of Akron, Ohio, is a singer, songwriter and actress. She is making her first appearance with WBTT in”Jazz Hot Mamas.” Currently a resident of Winston-Salem, N.C., Matelyn will appear in the 2015 NBTF in “Mabel Robinson’s Glory of Gospel.” Naarai Jacobs is the talented daughter of WBTT founder and artistic director Nate Jacobs. She has been entertaining on area stages since kindergarten. She has recently released her first original EP called, “On My Way.” Kenessa “Neyce” Pierre started singing at 3 years old and, as a teen, became a member of her grandfather’s gospel group out of Columbus, Ga. She debuted with WBTT in the 2006-2007 season. Neyce is a mother of two young girls and also has a fulltime job as a beauty advisor in a local retail establishment. Teresa Stanley appeared in her first major musical, “Purlie,” directed by Nate Jacobs. Teresa has toured internationally with “The New York Harlem Singers” and nationally with “The Broadway Church Ladies.” In 2007, Teresa was cast in “The Color Purple” on Broadway. Later, she performed in the first national tour of “Rock of Ages” and returned to Broadway to assume the role of “Justice/Mother.” PHOTO BY DON DALY PHOTO | NONPROFIT EVENTSWillie Nelson tribute concert tonight at American Legion Post 110 Beneting the Florida Children’s Organ Transplant Association, the “On The Road Again With Willie Nelson and Other Outlaws” tribute concert is at 7 p.m. tonight at the American Legion Post 110 hall, 3152 Harbor Blvd., Port Charlotte.

Coppersh Books, a Punta Gorda community book store, will once again be featuring popular books about local Florida history and Florida wildlife,” said Harris. Sponsors include the Englewood Authors Group, the Community Redevelopment Area, and the Friends of the Elsie Quirk and Englewood Charlotte libraries. Those who delight in fast-paced murder mysteries that hold the reader’s attention right up to the end will want to meet Punta Gorda resident and rst-time author Mark Dossey. In his “The Quest for a Cure,” a beautiful marketing director helping to launch a revolutionary cancer-curing drug must nd a way to text and talk her way out of trouble after being accused of murder. In his debut novel “Loud Music,” mystery story writer R.J. Coons writes about a park ranger, Blaine Sterling, who seeks a safe haven working at Osprey State Park in SW Florida after being brutally attacked. Blaine’s attacker is set free after being acquitted, and her life is turned upside down. In “The Dusty Trail” by Ray Hazal, readers will learn about life in a small upstate New York town during the 1950s. The author, who had a desire to write a novel after retirement, is legally blind. He dedicated “The Dusty Trail” to the Lighthouse of Manasota, a nonprot agency dedicated to working with low vision and blind individuals. Lighthouse volunteers will assist Hazal at the book signing. Dog fanciers will enjoy learning about two totally dierent dog stories. “Show Time for Rues” features a Portuguese water dog who is being groomed for competition. Author Ebba Patrick teamed up with well-known Englewood illustrator Verne Foster in writing this story, one that will appeal to adults as well as children. A heart-wrenching, true story written from the dog’s point of view, “Pedi Blue I Can Do It Too” describes how a paralyzed dog overcomes his disability. One day he was running an jumping; the next he would never walk again. A second 46-page short story, “Pedie Blue, Who Knew” will be oered for sale by Pedi Blue’s owners, Terri and John Gance. Mike Parshall, aka “Sax on the Beach,” will provide live music during the book festival, and the Myakka West Homemakers Club will be oering home-made goodies once again. Cash prizes of $75, $50 and $25 will be awarded at 1 p.m. to winners of the “Write on Englewood” writing and poetry contests. The Sixth Annual Dearborn Street Book Festival will take place at Pioneer Park from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Ample parking is available.

February 18 24, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 9 THINGS TO DOTest your sand savvy at the Venice Museum and Archives in the Triangle Inn. Newly opened in the museum space is “Making Waves: Venice Area Beaches Then and Now. “ Surfboards are a prominent part of the display but mostly because of their size. While there are surfers and skimboarders at Venice area beaches, that sand also has welcomed countless sea turtles during nesting season and year-round shermen, beach walkers, fossil collectors and sun bathers. Nokomis beach has whiter sand and far fewer shark teeth and other fossils. Warmer underfoot than the soft sand of Siesta Key, Venice beach sand is darker in color and home to fossilized shark teeth as well as shells. The teeth have led to the nickname of Venice as the “Shark Tooth Capital of the World.” Those teeth have even led to a minor industry — the manufacturing of Florida snow shovels, a rectangular mesh basket on the end of stick. Teeth collectors scoop sand into the “shovel” and when the ne grains of sand fall away, shells and fossils remain. While shark teeth are the most prevalent fossils, there are many other fossils to be found. Since the renourishment of the Venice beach area, more fossils are found at the south at Caspersen. Early photos and postcards depict the beach in the days when swimsuits were made of more fabric and visitors even showed up in streetwear for some occasions. In the 1920s, there was a building that served as city hall and as the Venice beach pavilion. The exhibit includes before and after beach renourishment photos, all sorts of “fun-in-thesun facts” and information about the varieties of sea turtles that are most likely to nd their way to area beaches during nesting season (May 1-Oct. 31). Photos and postcards in the display date from the 1920s to the 1990s. There also is a video display of local surng and skimboarding. It was created with collaborations with,, local surfers and skimboarders. According to a release from the museum, several boards are on loan from area manufacturers Zap Skimboards (Venice) and One World Surf Designs (Sarasota). “Making Waves” continues through July 29. The Venice Museum & Archives is free (donations appreciated) and open to the public on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. the rst and third Saturdays of each month through April 4. Built in 1927, the Triangle Inn is located at the west entrance of the Venice Cultural Campus at 351 Nassau St. S, Venice. The Cultural Campus includes the Venice Public Library, Venice Art Center and Venice Community Center and is across the street from West Blalock Park.

10 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V February 18 24, 2015 ON THE COVER — ITALIAN FEAST & CARNIVAL The 27th annual Italian Feast & Carnival will ll the Venice Municipal Airport Festival Grounds with all things Italian for four days beginning at 4 p.m. Thursday. From cannolis to ziti, food stalls will stretch nearly as far as the eye can see or at least as far as feet can walk, matched only by nearly nonstop entertainment and carnival rides. Nowhere do members of the sponsoring Italian American Club of Venice list a closing hour. The festival opens at 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and at noon on Saturday and Sunday. The closing hour seems to be whenever the last rider steps o the Ferris wheel or downs his last bite of pasta fagioli. Closing is always well after dark and long after the 6 p.m. closing of most festival ground events. The Italian Feast is one of the most popular events held annually at the airport. It draws thousands of Italians and “Italians for the day” from near and far. Italian foods oered at the festival include pizza; the Italian fare includes stromboli, eggplant Parmesan, assorted pastas, sausage and peppers, meat balls, cannoli, ravioli, pasta fagioli, calamari, calzones, zeppoli, meatballs, demitasse and spumoni. All that is augmented by traditional carnival treats such as funnel cakes, cotton candy, hot dogs, hamburgers, ribs, gyros, cheesesteaks, sausages, fried dough, soft drinks, beer, lemonade, iced tea, ice cream and corn dogs. To wash down all the food, there will be plenty of beer, soft drinks, lemonade, coee, tea and more. Mix it all up while spending time on the Ferris Wheel, Tilt-a-Whirl or one of the many carnival rides that will ood the midway with carnival sounds and lights. Or sit back and watch a variety of entertainment including ethnic dancers, singers and musical groups such as Bandana, led by Butch Gerace. Bandana, which just won the title of Best Local Band for the 18th year, will perform at the festival Friday and Sunday. This will be the 22nd year for Gerace and his group to perform at the festival. Before mov ing to Venice, Gerace toured for more than 12 years with Sam the Sham and The Pharoahs. Among the songs Bandana plays are “Li’l Red Riding Hood” and “Wooly Bully.” Bandana has become a mainstay at all the big local festivals and traditionally is the closing act at the Italian Feast. Other entertainment will include DooWop, Oldies, the Tarantella Dancers and others. Thursday, all rides will be $1 per person per ride from 4 p.m. until closing. Saturday, from noon to 5p.m. and Sunday, from noon until closing, riders can ride all the rides for just $15 per person. The festival’s kids’ zone traditionally includes face painting and carnival games. Take Avenida del Circo or Harbor Drive to Airport Road. Follow signs to the festival grounds on the south side of Venice Municipal Airport. The festival opens at 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday and at noon Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free. Parking is $5 per car. Shuttles will run between the parking area and the carnival.

February 18 24, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 11 UPCOMING EVENTSArtist Guy LaBree was one of Arcadia’s best-known residents whose talents were legendary among the Seminole Tribe. LaBree made an impressive contribution to the art world as well as in Native American channels. His death on Jan. 1 was noted far and wide. To celebrate his life, talent and vision, Arcadia businessman and musician Gordon “Mac” Martin is hosting a daylong event on Feb. 21. Both the DeSoto County Commission and Arcadia City Council declared Feb. 21 “Guy LaBree Day.” Opening at 10 a.m. at 207 E. Magnolia St. (the home of Martin Realty oce), a public art exhibit will display some of LaBree’s works, many of which are now owned by members of the Seminole Tribe. LaBree grew up with Seminoles, and his artwork often reected their heritage, culture and legends. Indeed, one of his paintings commissioned by the Tribe now hangs in the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. The DeSoto Arts and Humanities Council will be selling hot dogs over the lunch hour. LaBree was a member of DAHC and won rst place in the rst three Art of the River competitions DAHC held, including this year. Starting at 1 p.m., some of Florida’s best-known folk singers and songwriters have been invited to participate in an impromptu jam. LaBree and his wife, Pat, were frequent participants in the Nocatee Music Circle that meets every Thursday in DeSoto County, and LaBree was almost as well-known in music circles as he was in the art world. At 4 p.m., Martin will give welcoming remarks and introduce the invited guests, including several members of the Seminole Tribal Council and others who have known LaBree for many years. At 6 p.m., a potluck meal will begin. Martin plans to supply the main course (donations to help with the cost are graciously welcomed) and participants are asked to bring a covered dish to share. Visitors are also encouraged to bring chairs to sit in. Starting at sunset, a Song and Story Circle will start, lasting into the evening. The event is free and the public is welcome to attend and share their recollections of LaBree. For more information and to RSVP, call Martin at 863-990-2322.Guy LaBree’s life to be celebrated Feb. 21By SUSAN E. HOFFMANARCADIAN EDITOR PHOTO PROVIDEDGuy LaBree, who lived in DeSoto County for many years, was best known for his paintings of Seminole people and traditions. His palette is legendary — he never scraped o the paint after one painting, but simply poured fresh paint on top. Hence it contains remnants of all the paintings he has ever done. adno=50478369 adno=50481644

February 18 24, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 15 LIVE MUSIC The traditional folk duo Dulcinea was formed several years ago through a chance meeting in Punta Gorda’s Gilchrist Park when Phil Pittenger, a visitor from central New York, beheld the beautiful sounds of Chris Collins’ dulcimer. “I heard Chris playing up in the gazebo and I said to myself, ‘That instrument needs a guitar with it,’” Pittenger said. “I had played in bands, but hadn’t played for about 30 years. So I went back home and I packed my stu, sold everything o, got the old guitar out and started learning chords all over again. Then I came down here and started pestering Chris to let me play with her.” His perseverance paid o. The two began collaborating musically in 2012 and by 2014 they were married. These days they take their unique sound with them everywhere they go, from boutique gallery openings and pubs to farmers markets, coeehouses and even folk music festivals. In addition to traditional favorites, they play original songs they have composed. “Our name, Dulcinea, was inspired by Don Quixote’s girlfriend, which sounds like the instrument’s name,” Pittenger said. “The word dulcimer also means ‘sweet sound.’ Chris plays both the hammer dulcimer and the mountain dulcimer. The hammer dulcimer is shaped like a trapezoid and is a percussion stringed instrument, played with little mallets. The mountain dulcimer is a three-stringed instrument that can be strummed or picked.” Pettinger added the dulcimer dates back as far as 6,000 B.C. in ancient Persia. “The crusaders brought the dulcimer back to Europe from Persia,” he said. “When it eventually made its way to our shores, it became known as a lumberjack’s piano, due to its small size and similarity to the piano.” Originally from Fort Lauderdale, Collins is in her early 60s and Pittenger is nearly 70. The couple currently lives in Port Charlotte and Pittenger said their passion for music and playing together keeps them young. “We have a CD out now and we’re working on two more,” Pittenger said. In the meantime, you just might catch them from 6 p.m. to well into the evening, most Thursdays in Gilchrist Park on the lawn in front of the gazebo. “We have a good time playing there with a lot of other talented musicians,” Pettinger said. “We’re also starting to get some paying jobs and Chris teaches the dulcimer as well.” For more information about Dulcinea, log on to and type “Dulcinea’s music” in the search window. If you are interested in learning how to play the dulcimer, contact Chris Collins at 941-676-0237.By STEVEN J.

20 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V February 18 24, 2015 DINING OUT WITH Dining Out With Originally from New York, Daria Tomashosky moved to the area 20 years ago and has spent 18 of those years in North Port. She managed the Ukrainian Village condos on Biscayne Boulevard for a time, but when the Ukrainian Cultural Center was built she began working there part time. She currently serves as the center’s vice president, and is also president of the Ukrainian American Club. The large Ukrainian population in North Port and Port Charlotte is due to those who came in the 1970s for the lure of Warm Mineral Springs. About a dozen families started St. Andrews and a Ukrainian organization, and as more Ukrainians heard about it they relocated here, too. “We’re a tight-knit group, especially with what is going on in Ukraine right now,” Tomashosky said. “Our goal is to keep our history, culture and language alive, and to spread our message so other people know about it.” They relate the messages of their history and heritage through an active membership of about 120 people who are involved in various community eorts. “We’ve had a scholarship program at North Port High School for a number of years, and we’ve just opened it up to Port Charlotte High School as well,” Tomashosky said. Recipients need not be of Ukrainian background; in fact most are not. Part of the application process is to write an essay about a Ukrainian topic, however. In addition to the rst-year scholarship, the club gives the winners a stipend for books in their second year. The group helps support the Single Mothers Club at NPHS. Over the holidays they adopt a homeless student, and they have supported ve “grandmas” and “grandpas” in Ukraine. To fund their giving, they make and sell pierogies every few weeks at the Ukrainian Cultural Center. For Easter they make and sell breads at their bazaar. In her “spare” time, Tomashosky volunteers at the North Port Performing Arts Center and the food bank. She is on the board of Kiwanis and chairs the Sister Cities Advisory Board for North Port. She still operates a travel agency that she had in New York, but has scaled it back to serve mostly family and friends. Volunteering occupies most of her time and is near and dear to her heart. Tomashosky and her husband often eat dinner at Michelangelo in North Port, where she enjoys their pastas. For lunch, however, she chose the Gorgonzola Salad with chicken. It was beautifully presented on a bed of spring mix. “Everything is made fresh to order here and homemade,” Tomashosky explained. “Taste this chicken. This is not something that was frozen and fried.” She was right; it was indeed tender and grilled. Pizza is sold by the pie or the slice, with slices of pesto, basil, veggies and more available at lunch, with a soda for a lunch special. Nick Margiotta, who owns the restaurant with his wife, Lisa, and brother, Alex, veried that nothing is frozen or bought already prepared. They even make their own fresh mozzarella. They oer dinner specials on the weekends, “and the line is out the door then,” Nick said. Everything is made with the best Italian ingredients, many of them imported from Italy. “It costs a lot, but it’s worth it,” he said. Nick’s father-in-law, Frank Asaro, started Michelangelo on Long Island in 1980. He had worked at a pizzeria in Sicily as a boy and made pies that were so perfect and round that people would ask, “Who do you have back there, Michelangelo?” That’s how he gained the nickname and named his restaurant after it. He has six Michelangelo restaurants in New York, and has been in North Port for ve years. Soon they will open one in Venice and then on Bee Ridge in Sarasota. Visit Michelangelo at 1091 S. Toledo Blade Blvd. in the Shops at Price Crossing or call 941-426-0044.

February 18 24, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 21 SIDE DISHA warm waft of garlic, meatballs, and freshoured dough lls Jonathan’s Pizzeria in downtown Albany. From the age of 5, little Darrell Hornberger hung out there, taking it all in. He felt lucky to be Jonathan Urgo’s buddy, because that meant he was also an honorary member of this restaurant clan headed by “Pizza Mike” and Tony. Sometimes they even let him fold calzones or toss dough higher in the air than he was tall. After school, he’d perch in the kitchen of the legendary Albany steakhouse The Golden Fox, where his mom, Sally, was a server. He’d look up from his homework to marvel at volatile manager Henry Junco zigzagging all over, hollering directives to make sure everything went right. Over the years, restaurant life worked its way into his blood. “Those people really knew what they were doing,” he recalls. And his mom’s unaggingly positive energy, as she cared for both customers and family, inspired him. “My mom just has an instinctive sense of what people need. She created Darrell’s Restaurant, and she doesn’t even realize it.” People like to think they live in the kind of community where there are still real family restaurants, where neighbors care for one another, pitch in to help those in need, and pay it forward. Is a community like that just a Frank Capra fantasy out of “It’s a Wonderful Life”? Darrell Hornberger will tell you that the Albany where he grew up, and the Venice where he and his family now live and run Darrell’s Restaurant, are exactly those kinds of communities. “Our story IS Venice,” he says. “The local people have taken us in and created something so positive it’s amazing. I feel like I’ve grown up here. My restaurant wouldn’t succeed without them.” His grandmother’s home there had been a favorite vacation destination for Darrell’s family, so Venice became Darrell and Lisa Hornberger’s home in 1999, after his grandmother passed away. On vacation, the family had always gone to Pop’s Sunset Grill in Nokomis. So, while his and Lisa’s new house was being built, Darrell landed a job at Pop’s as a server. Soon he got to know everybody, and they all got to know the big guy. Says Lisa, “Darrell is bigger than life. People gravitate toward him. He does a lot of good for a lot of people. He’s always happy, loves to hug on you, and won’t let you leave without a kiss on the cheek. He’ll open the door for you and, if it’s raining, walk you out with an umbrella. He’s a throwback, old-fashioned kind of guy.” He tried dierent jobs, but nothing else would do but to work in a restaurant full of people. “After 10 years here, I started getting serious about having my own place,” Darrell says. After they found space in Brick Yard Plaza and his dad, Phil, sold his antique Ford Coupe to help with the startup, Darrell realized, “I’d nally impressed my dad.” What he hadn’t counted on was the whole community’s chipping in, too. Old friend Rob Arbuckle from Pop’s, now owner of Left Coast Seafood in Venice, sold him furniture and equipment to pay o over time. When Darrell tried to write plumber Dennis Underhill a check, Dennis wouldn’t take it, smiling, “Hey, you come pay me when you have it.” Darrell says, “This story isn’t about me. It’s about everybody else. Jess, Chris and Marty Wilford, they’re the kind of people in this community who this is really about. Marty helped with the construction, his mom Chris’s banana pudding is on the menu as ‘Marty’s Maw’s Banana Pudding,’ and Dennis Underhill’s her brother. Everybody’s family here!” With all this help, Darrell’s Restaurant launched in 50 days, in a whirlwind “Restaurant Impossible”-style opening advertised only by word of mouth. A lot of mouths must’ve been talking. Five hundred people showed up that day, and all the food ran out in the middle of dinner. Darrell sat in the gazebo afterward, mumbling, “What have I done?” But he also chokes up with emotion when he expresses his pay-it-forward philosophy — “Just do as good as you can for the community. Everything else will work itself out.” So Darrell’s oers Straight-A Certicates — a free meal for straight-A students — and helps organizations from the Shriners and Relay for Life to local sports teams. When one regular mentioned that a friend’s infant was having open-heart surgery, Darrell donated a meal as a gesture of hope that everything would turn out well. And, indeed, everything is working itself out. In only a year and a half, Darrell’s southern-style cooking and barbecue have earned it a TripAdvisor title as No. 2 barbecue venue in Southwest Florida and third-place People’s Choice winner in the 2014 Suncoast BBQ & Bluegrass Bash Chili Cook-O — which he entered on a lark. Darrell demurs, “I’m not a restaurateur, I’m a “people-ateur”! All I want is this one little restaurant, a gathering place for people to have fun. I just want to take care of my family and my friends.” Every day this guy makes a lot more friends. Know a restaurant or bar with a good story to tell? Sue Wade wants to hear about it.

22 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V February 18 24, 2015 DINING OUTNo one could ever accuse Venice’s Antonaras family of being lazy. Between the two generations of family members, they own no less than four businesses in town, including the Green Apple Salon and Spa, the Alteration Spot and the Wash House, a laundry. But it’s the family’s restaurant, which they pur chased in 2005, that is the heart of their operations. John Antonaras and his sons Anthony and Manny bought Ntino's from another longtime owner, and have been running it like the family business it is ever since. Manny said that the family had lived in the Venice area since 1990, but owned another type of business before they bought the restaurant. “I have a degree in automotive and we had a shop/Mobil station that used to be on the corner of U.S.41 and Shamrock,” he said. “But my brother is the creative/food guy, and he’s the one who got us into this business. We’re Greek, and we love to eat.” Since the Antonarases purchased the restaurant from Steve Fotos, they have put their own spin on the menu, incorporating more Greek cuisine and rening the pizza recipe. They have combined homestyle, made-from-scratch cooking with a casual, family-friendly atmosphere, and they're doing it for three meals a day. Though Ntino’s serves a wide variety of selections that include Italian favorites, burgers, stromboli, sandwiches, soups and salads, it’s the pizza that gets most of the rave reviews around town. "For the last 10 years, my brother and I have cre ated a niche for our pizza, and it’s delicious,” Manny said. “It’s light and crispy — the dough itself is really airy, and we blend our own cheeses. The pizza side of our restaurant has grown to be phenomenal.” Even as the price of the ingredients used in Ntino’s food has kept increasing, somehow the Antonaras family has managed to keep prices unbelievably low. On Friday nights, they have an all-you-can-eat sh fry for only $7.99 and Wednesday nights, you can get a spaghetti dinner for $5.99. A daily breakfast special called The Classic includes three eggs, toast, home fries and coee, and will set you back $4.79. And Mondays you can get a 10-inch, one-topping pizza and a Greek salad for two for only $9.98. Ntino’s has about 80 seats inside and a few more outside, and can also arrange take-out for you if that’s what you prefer. Manny says that there are a few new changes coming on the menu, but making alterations to a menu that regular customers love is not something his family takes lightly. “My brother and I, when we roll something out, we take our time to make sure it's right,” he said. “We were eating and playing with our Bualo Chicken Pizza recipe for six months before we introduced it here. We’re not a national chain, so what our local customers think about us means everything.” Ntino’s Family Restaurant & Pizzeria is at 660 South Tamiami Trail, in the Rialto Shopping Plaza on the Island of Venice. They are open for breakfast Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and Saturday and Sunday, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Lunch hours are from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and dinner is served from 3 to 9 p.m., both seven days a week.

February 18 24, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 23 ROAD TRIPOne of the fun things about being retired and living in Venice is the opportunity for exotic adventures via various bus tours — yet another way to make a road trip. Fifty local adventurers boarded the All Around Tour bus headed to Dade City. The schedule included Lunch on Limoges and an afternoon at the Girae Farm. Lunch on Limoges is like eating in a fairyland. It is a former clothing and dry goods store owned by the Wilson family for about 100 years. Phil Wilson took on a partner, Skip Mize. Together they created a unique shopping and dining experience — eating in the center of a general store. The ceiling is studded with large lighted stars. Glittery wall hangings cover the walls. Fiftypercent-o clothes racks are within sight. African wall masks ll a huge shelf. The food is elegant, hearty and delicious. The menu changes daily as the chef uses only market-fresh produce. The owners grow their own herbs. Prices are reasonable, starting at $8.95 for the signature pecan-crusted chicken dishes. The dessert specialty is meringue clouds on a custard sauce. Each plate was a presentation masterpiece served by waitresses in Battenberg lace aprons. Tables were covered with cloth tablecloths and adorned with fresh owers. Shoppers check sale items, cards and exotic one-of-a-kind items. Lunch alone is worth the drive to Dade City. At least that is what we thought until we arrived at the girae ranch 4 miles down the road. We couldn’t have imagined the magical afternoon we were about to experience. Elena and Lex Sheppa own the ranch. He was associated with Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo for 28 years. She was an artist. They have lived on animal compounds in Alaska and Africa and conducted tours to those places. Our tour began with a lesson by Elena about fossils, bones and antlers. She showed us the skeletons of various animal jaws and discussed how and what they ate. We got to hold bones and feel their weight and textures. Giraes have no top teeth. Zebras have large, strong, front teeth. Several people from our group went on camel rides, another option. Those who had trouble walking boarded a small vehicle with Elena. Walkers followed Lex on an exploration of the compound. Lex warned us we would fall in love with 3-month-old Bob the monkey. We did. We saw guinea pigs living together in a huge pen as one happy family. Some were nursing. Colorful piglets followed us walkers, nipping at our heels. A group of African mara watched us but 50-year-old tortoises ignored us for the most part. We saw lemurs and otters, each cuter than the other. Next we rode in a recycled school bus made to look like an out-of-Africa touring vehicle. We met Fred and Ethel, two spectacular warthogs, waiting for their afternoon snack. We learned a Red Forest bualo would soon be getting roommates now that the price dropped from $70,000 per pair. We saw how perfectly a rhinoceros was designed. The highlight of our afternoon was time with the girae family. We enjoyed watching them and learning about their lifestyle. Their luscious eyelashes protect their eyes from dust and bugs as they eat o the tops of trees. Adults are 18 feet tall. We loved the baby. Girae tongues are 18 inches long and feeding them was great fun. We learned to be quiet and not try to touch the giraes as they are easily spooked. Lex told us male giraes don’t usually help with their ospring, but he has video of one male helping steady the baby after it was born. Lex would be taking more lms to see if males do help or as Rex said, “I’ll see if this male is just a nice guy.” On leaving the farm, we saw the largest herd of small Irish cattle in the U.S. We were told to wash o the “girae germs” and then visited the gift shop. Lex and Elena are experts and excellent teachers. They were so welcoming, we even took a ride to see their lovely home. As we said our goodbyes and traveled home, we knew for sure Florida magic does not just happen in Orlando. The Girae Ranch is in Dade City, north of Tampa and o I-75. Reservations are required and must be made by telephone. Call 813482-3400. There are a variety of ranch tours, including some on Segways. All Around Tours oers a variety of dayand other trips throughout the year.
