Charlotte SunAND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000 An airline ticket gets you a seat on the plane, but not necessarily, the one you’re assigned, even if you pay extra for it. That’s what Ann and George O’Reilly discovered on a trip to Barcelona, Spain, last year on American Airlines. The Port Charlotte couple purchased “main cabin extra” seats with more legroom at a cost of $129.80 per segment per person. The $519.20 was in addition to the cost of the ticket. While there was no issue with the seats to Barcelona, it was another story ying back to Florida. “When we attempted to validate our seats for the return trip, the computer said that the seats in question were already sold. When we tried to nd out why, we pretty much only heard that they could not understand us,” Ann wrote me. Ann said registered return-receipt letters were sent to American’s refund ofce in October and December requesting a $259.60 refund with no response. I reached out to American, sending all documentation the O’Reillys smartly saved. After its investigation, American believes the problem was a change in the aircraft with a different seat conguration. Apologizing for not getting the seats they reserved, as well as the refund delay, it immediately processed the O’Reilly’s $259.60 refund. Contrary to assumption, specic airline seat assignments — regardless of service — aren’t guaranteed and are subject to change without notice. So if your free pre-assigned aisle seat in the main cabin suddenly becomes a middle seat in the last row of the plane, there’s nothing you can do. You bought a ticket, not a seat. But that “premium” coach seat upgrade? “Paid seat purchases reserve a seat within the Main Cabin area,” explains American’s contract of carriage. “While every attempt is made to fulll a specic seat, seat assignments are not guaranteed.” If there are no premium seats anywhere, the airline must refund the cost, as they eventually did with Ann and George. Remember, paid seats are nonrefundable. So only purchase one if you really want it, not because you think you have to. “On many ights now, 30 to 40 percent of coach seats are held back by the airline for premium customers, people with special needs or available only for a fee,” Scott McCartney writes in a Wall Street Journal article. “Facing what look like, but often aren't, high odds of getting a lousy seat at check-in, sitting apart from children or even getting bumped from an overbooked ight, many travelers feel pressured to pay for a reserved seat.” McCartney says don’t panic, suggesting checking the seat selection choices often and at least right at 24 hours before depar ture, when blocked seats may open up, or going to the airport early and talking to someone at the ticket counter. To help, ExpertFlyer offers a “seat alert” ( for an email advisory if a seat you prefer opens up. Finally, CBS travel correspondent Peter Greenberg offers another suggestion. “If you have a conversation with an airline representative you have a much bet ter chance at a good place to sit,” explains Greenberg. “For the best outcome, call at an off-peak time, speak with a supervisor and don’t take a demanding tone.” David Morris is the Sun’s consumer advocate.

Airline seat selection doesn’t guarantee seat PUNTA GORDA — It took a local jury about four hours Thursday to determine America’s top cigarette manufacturers are not responsible for the death of Barbara McMannis, a lifelong smoker who died two decades ago at age 59 in El Jobean. Her husband, Donald McMannis, 83, saw a Morgan & Morgan ad in a 2007 edition of the Sun and decided to le a lawsuit against Philip Morris USA and RJ Reynolds Tobacco Co. Donald claimed his wife died from lung cancer caused by smoking the defendants’ nicotine cigarettes, to which she was addicted. The plaintiff had sought $5 million in compensatory damages. Neither Donald nor his attor neys would take questions after Jury favors tobacco companiesBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERJURY | 11Cameras roll on Englewood Beach SUN PHOTO BY BETSY WILLIAMS On the movie set for makeup from All About You Salon in Englewood, Zoe Babb was in charge of starting the scene with actress Nadia Danowska (sitting), who plays the part of Alexia in the upcoming movie “Asarum.”ENGLEWOOD — Allen Driscoll didn’t have to be sold on Englewood and Boca Grande as a location for his feature lm “Asarum.” “It’s the pristine ambience about it,” Driscoll said of Englewood. Driving in Englewood area and Boca Grande, he said, “I felt like I was in another country — the contrast in the waters, the whole layout. “There’s a lot of potential.” Driscoll is familiar with the Englewood area. His mother lives in Rotonda. Filming for his movie began Thursday at the Lock ’N Key restaurant on Manasota Key just across the street from Englewood Beach. “This is awesome,” said Sandy Rodriquez, an 18-year Placida resident who was among a number of locals who braved chilly winds to see the lming Thursday.By STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERCAMERAS | 2NORTH PORT — Though the Catholic Charities Family Haven homeless intake portal in North Port doesn’t open its doors ofcially until March 6, excitement for the families it will help bubbled over Thursday afternoon.

Driscoll said he intends to do “extension sets” where special effects production allows lmmakers to remove mid-ground and backgrounds, replacing the scene with imaginative scenery. “Asarum” is a scilm that draws upon the Mesopotamian myth Gilgamesh and his failed quest for a plant that would have provided him immortality. The plot of “Asarum” imagines a seismic event in the Gulf of Mexico that opens up an entranceway that has been dormant for thousands of years. A young couple, being curious, discovers the plant Gilgamesh had lost. The couple doesn’t realize that a serpent, which Gilgamesh fought, still guards the plant. “We have a lot of talent behind it,” Driscoll said. Richard Tyson is among the actors appearing in “Asarum.” According to, Tyson’s career dates back to appearing in a “Moonlighting” episode in 1986. Chalet Lizette Brannan may be the 9-year-old daughter of the executive producer, Russell Brannan, but she has a long list of television and lm credits, including appearing in the Fox television series “The Sparrows.” She will also be appearing in an episode of TNT’s “Librarians” in the fall. Chalet, who attends private school for gifted students, said the fun part is making people happy and entertaining them. The hard part is memorizing her lines. “She can memorize a 100-page script in two hours — including people’s lines besides hers — that’s amazing,” her father said. “But she’s a child rst and foremost.” Nadia Danowska, 23, has a smaller role in the lm, playing Alexia Jade, a mysterious 200-year-old woman. It will be her rst feature lm appearance. Danowska is nishing up a bachelor’s degree at Florida Atlantic University where she’s performed in the theater and other small productions. Some Englewood residents became directly involved more in the lming than they originally expected. Jack Gray and Chris Phelps formed Multiplicity Media Group to promote radio, television and now lm promotions. Phelps found herself “promoted” as an assistant director to Driscoll Thursday. Carol Babb, her daughter, Zoey and her All About You Salon and Day Spa employees were recruited as makeup artists for the actors. Zoe was also recruited Thursday to mark the starts and ends of scene lming.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comCAMERASFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTOS BY BETSY WILLIAMSNine-year-old Chalet Brannan goes over a few of her lines with her mother Gabbie, for her role as Ashley Cooper in the movie “Asarum,” being lmed in Englewood on Thursday.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C The Sun /Friday, February 20, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA — Charlotte County Airport Authority nances for 2014 have been favorably reviewed by a just-completed audit. Jeff Tuscan, who heads up the airport’s outside auditing rm, told board members at Thursday’s meeting that staff complied with all requirements and the airport is on sound nancial footing. “Overall, a very good audit report,” Tuscan said. “There were no deciencies, material weaknesses, or instances of noncompliance related to the nancial statements.” However, with the amount of capital development now going on at the airport, he said there is a need to build up reserves. “You put a lot of money into the airport last year, and it’s basically come out of your cash,” he said. The facility expansion at Punta Gorda Airport comes as it becomes one of the fastest-growing airports of its size in the country. In 2014 passenger trafc topped a half-million travelers, marking an 88 percent increase from calendar year 2013. “That is just awesome,” said Gary Quill, airport executive director. The growth in demand for services required a major building program. After expanding its parking facility and car rental services in 2013, the airport broke ground on an $8 million expansion of Bailey Terminal, three times larger than before. But this investment has increased debt, from a total of $1.19 million in 2013 to $1.74 million last year. And there are other increased costs, stemming all the way back to Hurricane Charley in 2004. While the airport was able to rebuild after Charley, the once-new facilities are depreciating as they get older. These depreciating expenses, or the rate that assets deteriorate, are a benchmark to nancial health, Tuscan said. In 2014, the operating income loss before depreciation was $1.2 million. After depreciation, operating income loss for the airport was tabbed at $1.6 million, according to the audit. “We had a lot done here,” said Sandy Cauley, airport nance director. “It’s really increased our depreciation expense.” While maintaining the aireld does not take a lot of resources, the upkeep of the facilities does. “Our main concern is nding money to cover the maintenance of buildings,” Quill said. “It’s a challenge.” The good news is that since Hurricane Charley a decade ago, much of the airport development has been covered by grants. “We’ve talked for years that the airport has been very fortunate in that a lot of its assets have been replaced with grants over time, so it hasn’t had to come out of reserves or your internal funding, Tuscan explained. Commissioner Kathleen Coppola also cited the importance of grant money. For example, the Federal Aviation Administration awarded a $5.7 million grant for renovating the airport terminal. “FAA doesn’t give grants to airports that do not spend their money wisely and complete projects,” she said. For Punta Gorda Airport, the ultimate solution to any money worries is generating more revenue. Because the airport is a self-supporting authority, operating without the benet of ad valorem tax money, it relies heavily on charging for services rendered. “In general, cutting costs is a short-term x. The real long-term goal should always be increasing airport revenues,” Tuscan said. “That’s the goal the airport should have.”Email: groberts@sun-herald.comPG Airport passes audit with flying colorsBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITER Good news for Charlotte and Sarasota county motorists who drive to Southwest Florida International Airport. The $54 million road system directly connecting Interstate 75 with RSW will open to trafc in early March, according to Florida Gov. Rick Scott. Neither Scott nor state transportation ofcials would venture an exact opening date for the Direct Connect, a system of bridges and lanes parallel to those on the in terstate that’s expected to ease congestion on such feeder roads as Daniels Parkway, Treeline Avenue and Alico Road. However, Scott noted the opening could hardly come at a better time, as economic growth ramps up in the region. Moreover, Southwest Florida is entering into peak tourist season, with Major League Baseball spring training for the Tampa Bay Rays, Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins not far behind. Fans, tourists and winter residents are among the contributors to the more than 7.9 million iers last year: the second-highest count in the airport’s history. “Pretty much every month, we have a record here,” Scott said this week. Had it not been for some colder temperatures, a late February opening might have been possible. However, state transportation ofcials say the project is still on schedule for the spring opening they’d projected. Temperatures in the mid-60s or higher are optimal for asphalt paving, said Debbie Tower, spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Transportation. Recent bouts of colder weather — even here — have slowed progress, with crews continuing to work on what they can, days and nights. Said Tower: “If we get a couple of weeks of 65-degree-plus temperatures — and no rain — we would be crankin’.”Driving to RSW should get easierBy LAURA RUANENEWS-PRESSBark for LifeBark for Life, a new event planned by the American Cancer Society Area Relay for Life, is scheduled from 9:30 to 10 a.m. today at Port Charlotte High School.

NORTH PORT — Trafc on U.S. 41 through North Port was snarled for hours Thursday morning after a atbed truck overturned on Interstate 75 and vehicles were rerouted through the city. According to Lt. Greg Bueno with the Florida Highway Patrol, the truck, which was hauling a load of concrete blocks, overturned on southbound I-75 at mile marker 182 — the Sumter Boulevard exit — shortly after 7 a.m., resulting in the closure of both southbound lanes after the blocks were scattered onto the roadway. An FHP report shows the driver of the truck, Nicolai Luta, 23, of Tacoma, Wash., was traveling in the right lane of the highway when an unknown driver cut him off, he told troopers. The truck veered onto the right shoulder, and Luta overcorrected, causing the tractor-trailer to spin around and overturn, and the load of concrete blocks to land in the roadway. The vehicle landed on its right side, with its trailer crossing over the southbound lanes, the report shows. Luta, who was wearing a seat belt, was not hurt. He was cited for careless driving, the report shows. Drivers seeking an alternate route along U.S. 41 through the city caused delays of nearly an hour. Another vehicle crash just over the city line on U.S. 41 near Granada Boulevard at 7:42 a.m., heading west toward Venice, added to the backup. A report was not available Thursday afternoon, according to Kaitlyn Johnson with the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Ofce, which responded to that scene. “It took 45 minutes to get from Toledo Blade (Boulevard) to Biscayne (Drive),” Nicle Lynn posted on the North Port Sun ’s Facebook page. The FHP and emergency crews responded to the I-75 scene to investigate and remove the concrete blocks. Employees with construction company Conalvias, who were working on the interstate in the area, also assisted in the cleanup. The southbound lanes reopened at 8:16 a.m., the report shows.Email: annek@sun-herald.comOverturned truck scatters blocks, backs up trafficBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER | COMMUNITY | NEWS BRIEF Diabetic Care Foot Pain Foot Surgery Injuries New Patients Welcome 941-613-1919 3191 Harbor Blvd. Unit D Port Charlotte, FL 33952 adno=50478092 COMPLETE FOOT CARE Dr. Michael Metyk Podiatric Surgery adno=50480261 adno=50481665 Toll Free: (800) 582-1550 Phone: (941) 764-6635 Francis Tax Service Specializing in Income Tax Preparation, Accounting & Tax Problem Resolution Heather M.

Our Town Page 6 E/N/C The Sun /Friday, February 20, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS ENGLEWOOD — It’s got a $50,000 price tag. But the expense of having a solar-powered water taxi in Englewood isn’t stopping a local group from trying to gure out how to fund it — with the idea of bringing more people to downtown Englewood. This week, members of the Water Ferry Committee listened to Robbie Cunningham of Trident Pontoons Inc. give details for operating a water taxi fueled by the sun and large batteries. Unsure what size boat is needed to shuttle visitors from Middle Beach to a ramp close to Dearborn Street, Cunningham guessed a 12-passenger vessel might work. “The boat will have a custom design for your needs,” Cunningham said. “It would go 6 miles per hour at full speed. I wouldn’t suggest running it at full speed because it will eat up the battery quickly. A recommended speed is more like 4 miles per hour. It would take about 15 minutes to get to your location at that speed. The boat would need four to six batteries. Think of this boat as a golf cart that has been marinized.” Cunningham said the boat needs to have enough room for passengers, but not too many seats that it always looks empty. Cunningham said the committee would have to decide several details about the boat. Besides seating, do they want to use the boat for tours? If the committee decided to buy a boat from Cunningham, it would take about four months to complete. “A solar power boat will cost about 30 percent more but you will save in fuel,” he said. “My gure (starting at $50,000) is a turn-key price. It includes everything. If you are buying a solar-powered boat, you are in a special category. Combustible motors will win all of the time as far as price. Those who want to use electric power means they are different. In California, they advertise that their boats are powered by the sun. People love it.” After the meeting, member Russ Kyper took Cunningham on a tour of the area to show crossing Lemon Bay from Blind Pass Beach to West Dearborn Street. For more than eight years, Kyper has envisioned a water taxi that would make regular trips from the bay side of Sarasota County’s Blind Pass Beach to docks on the mainland. Docks will be available on Harbor Drive at the west end of Dearborn Street, but the Englewood Community Redevelopment Agency is now constructing a 209foot boat dock and a 128foot shing pier on Lemon Bay at the Cherokee Street Park, which is off the west end of Green Street. “The idea is to have peo ple come over on the ferry and visit Dearborn Street,” he said. “We are trying to develop a beacon to attract people to Englewood and we want to develop a completely green project and something unique to Englewood.”Email: Englewood eyes solar-powered ferryBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHCOMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR Porcelain artists show, sale setThe Charlotte Porcelain Artists 32nd Annual Show and Sale will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Visual Arts Center, 210 Maud St., Punta Gorda.

The Sun /Friday, February 20, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. NORTH PORT — The North Port Police Department managed to stop two Miami residents from “buying” merchandise from the North Port Home Depot with counterfeit gift cards, according to an NPPD report. Grettel GutierrezQuintana, 25, and Victor Manuel Negrin, 24, are being charged with possession of two or more counterfeit credit cards and trafcking in credit cards for allegedly purchasing power tools with fake gift cards along the southwest coast of the state. At 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, authorities said they received a tip from law enforcement in Englewood that subjects in a black Chevrolet Traverse with a specied Florida license plate could be attempting to buy power tools from Home Depot. According to the report, NPPD ofcers found a vehicle matching the description in the Home Depot parking lot, off Tamiami Trail near Sumter Boulevard, and the registration of the vehicle did not match the description of the same vehicle. The report states police made contact with Negrin, the driver of the vehicle, who said he was waiting for his girlfriend, Gutierrez-Quintana, who was inside the store wearing a pink shirt and pants. Ofcers said they found Gutierrez-Quintana “ducking down” in the parking lot of Home Depot behind vehicles. When asked questions, the report states, Gutierrez-Quintana spoke little English and a translator was requested. Gutierrez-Quintana gave law enforcement consent to search her wallet, where authorities reportedly located a counterfeit Home Depot card. The report said she told police Negrin had the rest of the cards. Authorities said a detective inspected a total of 11 cards, and each had Gutierrez-Quintana’s name and a ctitious credit card account number on it. The cards were conrmed by Citibank as being valid Citibank account numbers that showed recent fraudulent activity from area Home Depot stores. The report states Negrin told police he had nothing to say, and directed them to talk to his girlfriend. Gutierrez-Quintana and Negrin are being held at the Sarasota County Jail on $9,000 bond each.No injuries reported in school bus crashSOUTH SARASOTA COUNTY — A New Port Richey, Fla., man was cited for making an improper lane change Wednesday after his van struck a Sarasota County school bus carrying 11 children from Oak Park School.

We believe DUI checkpoints are very important in removing a threat to lives, including the drunk driver’s life. Has this lawyer thought once about a drunken driver being allowed to continue unabated and ultimately killing someone? Has this lawyer thought once that possibly this drunk driver might kill one or some of his own loved ones? I think not. Hopefully we will hear no more from this lawyer and the DUI checkpoints will continue. I support our police ofcers and thank them for their service.Doug Stewart North PortEditor: History ofcially records the following: “Between 5 million and 6 million Jews — out of a Jewish population of 9 million living in Europe — were killed during the Holocaust.” If the Obama administration were asked to report these events is would most likely be as follows: Between 5 million and 6 million people living in Europe were killed during the Holocaust.Albert Wiker Punta GordaEditor: To Joe Conason: I nd it difcult to comprehend that you write about lies and then you lie in your article, “Big lies, little lies and the punishment of Brian Williams,” printed Feb. 14. I have checked out two incidents you refer to: Sean Hannity and George W. Bush. First of all, I would never refer to an article written by Leonard Pitts Jr., since he constantly writes articles Editor: An open letter to NBC News: I am expressing my disappointment in your six-month suspension of Brian Williams. I fully appreciate the integrity and trust issues involved with a much-respected and revered newscaster; however, I feel his exposure and deep humiliation is the very worst punishment this man could possibly suffer. Why a man who appears to have it all would chose to glorify himself during a guest appearance on a talk show is beyond my understanding. And, I understand why, once brought to the fore, it is necessary to react swiftly to this situation. We seem to live in a society which, by and large, tolerates a double standard, especially among government gures, politicians and business leaders. When called out for stretching the truth, their transgressions are generally overlooked, following an apology. Jesus once said, “He who is without sin among you, let him be the rst to throw a stone at her.” And no one did. I am not defending Brian Williams because I like him very much. I would feel the same way no matter who the offender might be. I’d like to see his punishment drastically reduced, and his return to his esteemed position, thus giving him an opportunity to go on with his life, having learned a difcult lesson and possibly having set an example for others. I would like to see his suspension shortened to three months or less. There is no purpose in possibly destroy ing a brilliant career.Gail H. Weiss EnglewoodEditor: It is no wonder there are so many hit and runs. A few years ago, I was hit in the rear of my car and the vehicle went around me and was only caught because a Harley driver caught up with him. The sheriff’s deputy did not arrest him and he ultimately paid something like $300, and the state’s attorney did not prosecute him. Small price to pay considering the crime. I learned later the guy had a record that suggested he should have been arrested. My car was xed, lousy paint job until they corrected it. Driver door won’t lock now and the back left tire is wearing out while the other three are still good. Too late to go back on insurance, so I lose again. So much for serve and protect. Frank Hill Port CharlotteEditor: A simple-minded guy called our president an Editor: I am a retired state and federal public defender. In my 19 years in these positions, I have interviewed over a thousand clients in settings similar to those at the Charlotte County Jail. Now, our sheriff claims that only ve attorney-client meetings at his jail were “inadvertently” recorded, out of a possible 1,900 such meetings, and those were then “mistakenly” forwarded to the state’s attorney, who happened to be prosecuting the murder case against one defendant. We are to believe this because an investigation concluded that this was the case. Only by reading the entire article do we learn that this unlawful activity, which violated this defendant’s rights under the Sixth Amendment, was investigated by the same agency which stands accused of this egregious conduct. Certainly, the jail detective knew before the sheriff decided to investigate on Jan. 28 what was on the recording, but nonetheless forwarded it on to the State Attorney’s Ofce, the adversary of Mr. Oonk and his client. In the legal profession, there is a credibility test used by lawyers, variously called the straight-face test or the smell test. When presenting a version of the “facts” favorable to your client’s position to a court or jury, you have to be certain that you can keep a straight face while you are putting forth a fundamentally unbelievable version of events. The smell test is the same. If your story is so improbable that it smells false, the judge or jury simply isn’t going to accept it. This investigation, conducted by the alleged perpetrator itself, does not pass either version of this credibility test. If Sheriff Prummell has any integrity, he should welcome and ask for a new investigation by an outside entity, like FDLE or the FBI. If he won’t do so, the state’s attorney should take action to preserve the integrity of the justice system by seeking an unbiased review. Tom Flynn Punta GordaEditor: It’s a little early to be picking a horse in the 2016 Presidential Race. But some comments need to be addressed as they arise. Howard Dean, the failed Democratic presidential candidate says Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker isn’t qualied to be president. Putting aside Walker’s qualications, which I feel are impressive, why would anyone listen to Howard Dean? And, as to his assertion that without an Ivy League education, you are not ready to be president, I say “what a load of nonsense.” I would go so far as to Summits give counties some collective muscleOUR POSITION: Regional arm-exing could pay off for local communities.With a combined population of 1.7 million people, the six-county region including Charlotte, Sarasota, Lee, Collier, Hendry and Glades counties could command considerable attention from state leaders on a range of issues, ranging from transportation infrastructure to ood insurance changes to tourism. So we’re encouraged by a recent series of meetings between county administrators and county commission chairmen to explore areas of mutual concern with an eye toward exerting that potential inuence more effectively. Charlotte County last week played host to the latest of three regional summits, which gave Charlotte County Administrator Ray Sandrock and Commission Chairman Ken Doherty the chance to highlight local issues and pitch a more regional approach to shared opportunities and challenges. For example, the summit attendees discussed the pending rate increases for ood insurance administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Sandrock said that although Congress last year “tapped the brakes” on proposed rate hikes, the higher premiums would soon be implemented in phases without intervention on behalf of affected homeowners and businesses. One message the summit partners is sending is that Florida is a ood insurance donor state, with Charlotte County policy holders, for example, paying $200 million in premiums over the past decade while making only $10 million in claims. County leaders also pledged to work together on a Southwest Florida Visitors Center proposed for the Jones Loop Rest Area off Interstate 75. The state Department of Transportation plans to close the facility this spring and Charlotte County made preliminary inquiries about acquiring the property for a visitors center. Recently, the DOT told county ofcials the price tag — at rst assumed to be nominal — would be $9 million. That’s too rich for Charlotte County alone, but the combined inuence and contributions of the six counties could effect a lower price and a state nancial role that would make it more feasible. Transportation-related issues are common among all the summit players. High on the priority list is lobbying for more state funding of expansion projects for former state roads that were transferred to county jurisdiction decades ago before the region’s population boomed with the extension of Interstate 75 in the 1970s. Such projects, including Burnt Store Road in Charlotte and Lee counties and River Road in Sarasota County, are budget busters for local governments, despite the fact they are integral parts of the state road network, connecting coastal communities with major northsouth arteries, such as U.S. 41 and Interstate 75. The six-county regional summit is just one such collaborative approach to collective issues. Charlotte County this year also participated in the 16 County Summit that included every county south of Palm Beach and Charlotte — a block of constituents 8 million people strong. Each member county’s commission passed a joint resolution supporting not only legislative priorities, but regulatory issues involving water management districts and state and federal environmental agencies. It has been a struggle for Charlotte and Sarasota counties to wield much inuence in Tallahassee and Washington. By uniting with neighbors who share common concerns and circumstances, our county leaders are bet ter equipped to inuence policy, funding and decision-making in state and national power centers. which show he has reverse discrimination. He only sees injustices done to the blacks, which he emphasizes and ignores black-on-white crime. Articles by and mediamatters both indicate the story about Sean Hannity to be untrue. An article in Wikipedia shows that although Bush lost his authorization to be a pilot, he was honorably discharged from the Texas Air National Guard. When can I expect your retraction on these two issues to appear in the Sun?Lillian Iannarone Englewoodsay, I’d prefer some common sense, intestinal fortitude, an a track record as governor to any college degree. The implication of Dean’s remarks are elitist and demeaning. He should be ashamed.Lois Virgo EnglewoodIslamic traitor in his letter to the editor. Judging by his name he is probably not even an American and has no idea that he is really putting the United States down with his stupid remarks. If there is a traitor in our midst it is the speaker of the House, Mr. Boehner. After he received a visit from the Jewish lobbyist groups in Washington (the largest such groups in our capital) he felt obligated to invite the Israeli PM behind the back of our president and the Department of State. In our democratic system anyone can invite any person to the U.S., providing he or she has an entry visa from the Department of State. It is understandable that there is a cool relationship between our administration and Israel after the Israeli prime minister violated a number of agreements between our countries. But, I assume money talks, so Boehner played ball and invited Mr. Netanyahu to the U.S. and will call our Congress to order so Netanyahu can address the full house on Capitol Hill. Well, to me, Boehner is the biggest traitor with his actions; he just forgot that so far Netanyahu does not have a visa yet to enter the U.S. It will be interesting to see how Traitor Boehner’s activities will end.

The Sun /Friday, February 20, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINTReckless disregard. It’s a phrase in legal writing that means “gross negligence without concern for danger to others.” And it’s a phrase that characterizes much of the attitude toward law of an administration headed by a man sometimes described as a constitutional scholar. The most recent case in point is the decision by federal district judge Andrew Hanen in Texas enjoining the operation of Barack Obama’s order barring prosecution of something like 4 million illegal immigrants. The administration has a plausible legal argument: the president is ordering immigration authorities to exercise discretion, just as a prosecutor does not bring all possible indictments. In his 123-page opinion Judge Hanen disagrees. “The DHS cannot reasonably claim that, under a general delegation to establish enforcement priorities, it can establish a blanket policy of nonenforcement that also awards legal presence and benets to otherwise removable aliens.” That tracks with the president’s boast that, when he signed the order, “I just took an action to change the law.” But Judge Hanen’s decision rests on a narrower ground — that the government, in issuing work permits and authorizing the issuance of driver’s licenses, did not follow the rules of the Administrative Procedure Act. The administration will appeal and the outcome must be regarded as uncertain. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants have had their plans disrupted, and should the administration prevail on appeal their status could still be revised by a later president. Issuing this order to, belatedly, keep a campaign promise was negligence without concern for the possible danger to others. Obama has also acted with reckless disregard in administering the Obamacare statute he cites as his greatest domestic achievement. More than three dozen times he has unilaterally ordered nonenforcement of politically problematic provisions. And the entire structure of the act is in peril because of one of those actions in the King v. Burwell case, scheduled for argument in the Supreme Court March 4. The Obamacare legislation authorizes subsidies to be paid only in states with health insurance exchanges “established by the state.” But Obama’s Internal Revenue Service decided that it would also authorize them in the 36 states which did not establish an exchange but opted for using the federal exchanges authorized by the statute. Mainstream media is lled these days with stories of how people in these states will be left without insurance if the Court reads the statute as written. Grave predictions are made that multiple deaths will result. That’s advocacy journalism, designed to inuence the Court to rule the government’s way. Still, undoubtedly many people will be inconvenienced by the overturning of an administrative ruling they relied on. But whose fault is that? The Obama Democrats wrote a law that, as you can watch their expert Jonathan Gruber explain on video, was designed to bludgeon the states into setting up their own exchanges. When it became apparent that many wouldn’t, the administration — not Congress — rewrote the law to suit its political convenience. Reckless disregard of the law is an ingrained habit in President Obama’s administration. After six years its legal interpretations have been rejected by unanimous rulings of the Supreme Court more often than in the eight years of George W. Bush’s administration. The Court ruled 9-0 that Obama couldn’t make recess appointments when the Senate said it was not in recess. It ruled 9-0 that the government couldn’t decide whom a church could classify as clergy. It ruled 9-0 that the government couldn’t ne landowners $75,000 a day to appeal an administrative order blocking construction in an alleged wetland. The Constitution authorizes Congress to pass laws and requires the president to faithfully execute them. Obama seems to take that as not so much a requirement as a suggestion, one he sees t to ignore when he wants to “change the law.” The Constitution’s framers wrote the faithful execution clause because they remembered that King James II claimed and exercised the power to suspend laws passed by Parliament whenever he liked. James was forced to ee England in the Glorious Revolution of 1688, and in 1689 Parliament passed a Bill of Rights declaring “that the pretended power of suspending the laws or the execution of laws by regal authority without consent of Parliament is illegal.” There is a continuum between lawful exercise of discretion and unlawful suspension of the law. Time and again, Obama has lurched toward the wrong end of it. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner. Readers can reach him via www. washingtonexaminer. com. Barack Obama’s ‘reckless disregard’ of the law Michael Barone When former Gov. Rick Perry hits the presidential campaign trail, he stresses the low unemployment, impressive job creation and balanced budgets during 14 years as Texas’ governor. He downplays the state’s inadequate record in health insurance coverage, carbon dioxide emissions and high school graduations, hoping in a country that loves to elect gover nors as president to make a better case than others in a Republican eld with nearly a dozen present or past state executives. Potential rivals also accentuate the positive. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stresses attacking inherited budgetary problems, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal education reform, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker curbing government employee unions. But like Perry with Texas’ poor record of providing social services, these three face serious questions about their economic stewardships, especially how their trademark GOP conser vative tax-cutting policies exacerbated, rather than resolved, budget decits. Some specics:Christie’s ‘Jersey comeback’For years, Christie touted the “Jersey comeback” that capped high property taxes, pledged to fund an ailing pension system and gave business tax incentives to create jobs. But a slower economic recovery than other states forced suspension of pension payments and produced eight credit downgrades. Facing a $1.6 billion decit, Christie last month urged legislators to consider “where we were and how far we’ve come,” but he did not specify how to x the pension problem. A recent Farleigh Dickinson University poll rated his job approval at 39 percent. Only one in ve called his tenure good for the average New Jersey citizen, and three-fourths said he had “minor accomplishments or no real accomplishments.”Jindal’s Louisiana wreckThe 43-year-old Jindal hoped to make Louisiana a laboratory for conservative government, but the experiment has blown up in his face. Several recent articles assailed his budgetary missteps (“How Bobby Jindal Wrecked Louisiana,” headlined one in The American Conservative), blaming his own policies, including massive tax cuts, corporate subsidies and short-term nancing gimmicks. Jindal took ofce with a $1 billion surplus from an economy buoyed by high oil prices and signed ve tax cuts totaling $1.1 billion, including one from legislative Republicans he initially opposed. Now, with oil prices sharply down, the state has a $1.4 billion shortfall. He refused to raise taxes or cut corporate subsidies for Walmart, the oil rener Valero and the popular television show “Duck Dynasty.” But he proposed increasing already sharp cuts for higher education. Critics label the underlying situation even worse, because of bor rowing from state reserve funds that pay elderly ser vices and patient claims. GOP critics include Sen. David Vitter, the favorite to replace Jindal this year.Walker’s wilted WisconsinLike other governors elected in 2010, Walker promised to cut taxes, adding he’d create 250,000 new jobs and cut unemployment. Four years later, substantial economic problems remain. Several news organizations unfavorably compared Walker’s conservative economic policies with the success of liberal prescriptions in neighboring Minnesota by Democratic Gov. Scott Dayton, also elected in 2010 and facing similar problems. The La Crosse (Wisconsin) Tribune noted Walker faced a 9.2 percent jobless rate and a $3.6 billion decit. He cut income and property taxes by some $2 billion, made massive cuts in public education and required public employees to pay more for health insurance and pensions. In Minnesota, Dayton, inheriting a $5 billion decit, raised taxes on the wealthiest citizens and on tobacco while cutting some middle-class taxes. Wisconsin rejected federal funds to expand Medicaid; Minnesota took them and created its own health care marketplace. Now, Minnesota has faster job growth and a lower jobless rate. Wisconsin faces a $2.2 billion decit; Minnesota has a $1.2 bil lion surplus. Minnesota is repaying funds borrowed from school funding, while Walker seeks additional cuts in education, including the University of Wisconsin system, arousing strong faculty and student opposition.Other gubernatorial hopefulsAll gubernatorial hopefuls have mixed records. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has long faced conservative criticism for increasing taxes and spending. A strong economy enabled former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to cut taxes but he let some spending rise and pursued moderate stances on immigration and education. The real threat to Christie, Jindal and Walker could come if two other Midwestern governors elected in 2010 under similar circumstances decide to run. Unlike those three, Ohio’s John Kasich and Indiana’s Mike Pence have balanced budgets that permit additional tax cuts and education support. Both would have a strong case on how being governor prepared them to be president. Carl P. Leubsdorf is the former Washington bureau chief of the Dallas Morning News.

The Sun /Friday, February 20, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 11 FROM PAGE ONE Way and Pan American Boulevard. Many words were spoken during a cer emony Thursday in 50-degree weather about how the portal will serve a much-needed purpose in the community. “What a great symbolism it is to be out here with chilled toes and chilled hands, and the only comfortable place is inside those walls,” said Gulf Coast Community Foundation Community Investment Director Jon Thaxton, a former Sarasota County commissioner. Thaxton is one-half of the “dynamic duo” — Mark Pritchett, GCCF senior vice president, works alongside him — who helped bring the intake portal to life, according to GCCF president and CEO Teri Hansen. Thaxton said the project that was envisioned two and a half years ago has evolved to include seven partnering agencies, all with one goal in mind — ending homelessness in Sarasota County and restoring hope for those who need it most. Along with GCCF, Sarasota County, the Heron Creek Community Foundation and several private donors have been a part of the funding process for the project. Catholic Charities-Diocese of Venice will provide services at the portal. The second leg of the Family Haven project will include the pur chase and renovation of a minimum of four single-family homes nearby, preferably within walking distance. The selected homes will serve as temporary housing for families once they have left the emergency portal. Catholic Charities has until April 30 to identify and approve the homes with North Port city commissioners. The houses must be rehabilitated no later than June 30, 2016, and families must be in the temporary homes by no later than Sept. 30, 2016. “We are addressing the most urgent need in South County, and that is children and families,” Sarasota County Commissioner Christine Robinson said of the emergency homeless shelter. “Family Haven will bring hope. When families thrive, our whole community benets.” Forty percent of the county’s homeless families are located in South County, according to county Human Services Policy Coordinator Wayne Applebee. North County serves approximately 60 percent, and has had a steady inux of needy families since the Harvest House Family Haven opened in October in Sarasota. Twenty-ve families with 52 children were served last month in January at the North County facility. Hansen said that since the launch of the Sarasota shelter, the or ganization has partnered with local Goodwill locations to help with the transportation and storage of families’ belongings once they have been displaced. Program director Cynthia Townsend is excited about the families they will be helping very soon in North Port. “Everything a family would need will be found here — that’s the really exciting thing about this,” Townsend said. “Since October, we’ve helped between 40 and 50 families (in South County). This is going to be great.” Catholic Charities has led the charge in the establishment of the city’s Family Haven. The notfor-prot social service agency served 42,088 people between 2013 and 2014 in Southwest Florida. The progression of the North Port intake portal is part of Texas-based consultant Dr. Robert Marbut’s vision for dealing with Sarasota County’s homeless population, which calls for homeless intake facilities throughout the county. On Thursday, ceremony attendees listened to the Most Rev. Frank Dewane, bishop of the Diocese of Venice, as he blessed the facility and the many whom it will serve. “The family means a great deal to us. This is who we are. We saw the need and we have to reach out and do this,” Dewane said. “A residence is important. A family cannot thrive without it.”Email: sgholar@sun-herald.comBLESSEDFROM PAGE 1 the complex three-week trial, but said they planned to appeal the jury’s decision. Counsel for the major tobacco companies did not comment on their successful defense. The four women and two men who served on the jury were escorted out of the Charlotte County Justice Center by security. They ignored media questions. Donald was represented in this case by Craig Stevens, Keith Mitnik and Greg Prysock, all of Morgan & Morgan. During trial, they pointed out Barbara’s death certicate says she died from lung cancer, and they presented medical evidence indicating that smoking likely at least contributed to that cancer. Barbara’s family members, including Donald, testied that they saw Barbara smoking often. They said they thought she was addicted. They said she smoked brands like Marlboro (Philip Morris) and Lucky Strike (RJ Reynolds). Philip Morris was represented by Bill Geraghty, of Shook, Hardy and Bacon; and Geoffrey Michael, of Arnold & Porter. RJ Reynolds was defended by Kurt Weaver of Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice. The defense had a medical doctor review Barbara’s medical records, and he testied at trial that he believed it couldn’t be determined where Barbara’s cancer started. And, he said, she didn’t have common symptoms of someone with lung cancer. Geraghty suggested to the jury that Barbara wasn’t addicted to cigarettes because she worked in a factory where she couldn’t smoke. Donald testied he couldn’t recall Barbara complaining about this. Geraghty’s message to jurors during both opening and closing arguments was the same: “Barbara controlled her smoking. Cigarettes did not control her.” Weaver also urged jurors to remember that Philip Morris and RJ Reynolds did not make the cigarettes that Barbara began smoking as a teen. A sister had testied that Barbara, when she was 13 or 14, began smoking Chesterelds — produced by Liggett & Myers Tobacco Co., until 1999 — that she stole from her father. The McMannises hailed from Zanesville, Ohio. They moved to El Jobean in 1969. Donald moved to Lake Suzy after Barbara died in 1995. Though Donald was not made available for comment Thursday, he spoke with the Sun before the tobacco trial. He said his decision to sue was because he wanted someone held accountable for his wife’s early death. “I think cigarettes should be cut out completely,” Donald said, who was a smoker himself but quit about 15 years ago. “Every time I see someone smoking, I can’t help but think that it could kill them.” Donald’s lawsuit — the rst of its kind in Charlotte — came after a class action lawsuit in the 1990s and subsequent Florida Supreme Court decision in 2006. A group of Florida smokers — including lead plaintiff Howard Engle — had diseases they felt were caused by smoking, so they sued the tobacco industry, and won. The state Supreme Court eventually said people couldn’t continue to be added to that suit, but, they could le their own lawsuits and, if they could prove they were an “Engle class member,” they could benet from decisions the original Engle jury decided upon: 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. To be a member of the Engle class, a plaintiff must prove there was a disease that can be caused by nicotine cigarettes, that disease was caused by those cigarettes, and the smoker was addicted to those cigarettes. The jury in the McMannis case determined Barbara wasn’t an Engle class member. Retired 20th Circuit Judge Sherra Winesett volunteered her time to preside over the case, which started with three days of jury selection on Feb. 2. The jurors each were paid about $350 for their service. During the three-week trial, some quasi-judicial ofcers had to operate out of conference rooms at the Justice Center so Winesett could have a courtroom. Courthouse ofcials said the lengthy, complex trial went smoothly. There is another Engle progeny lawsuit scheduled for trial in April at the Justice Center before 20th Circuit Judge Lisa Porter.Email: JURYFROM PAGE 1 Voted Best Ophthalmologist 2011 2014 624-4500 50477911 adno=50478665 adno=50481593 Goodwill Retail & Donation CenterONE DAY ONLY!Saturday, Feb. 21At Southwest Florida GoodwillRetail & Donation Centers(Lee, Collier, Charlotle, Hendry & Glades Counties)Ganatadgoods onlySvacc_:catahom nmandse see store lot cc:il)Sorryd;ccuiesdcdespz+cu pc: yes.Saleexcud=SGoccvn 3outiaueonfirs aGoodallOjte:Cente.Donate.

Our Town Page 12 E/N/C The Sun /Friday, February 20, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Chilly and windy weather didn’t stop the bocce ball game Thursday morning at Port Charlotte Beach Park. Mike Tamburro, bundled in layers of clothing, was part of the group playing the Italian sport. He is from Canada, but has stayed in Port Charlotte for four months each winter for 20 years. “I’m used to the cold weather,” he said. “It’s warm compared to up there.” Jean Fischer, who moved to Port Charlotte after she retired, said the cold weather reminded her of Brooklyn, N.Y. With temperatures expected to dip to freezing overnight, she said residents may have to dress in layers because they don’t even have warm clothing here. Though it should warm up again by Saturday, some Southwest Florida residents have had to scramble for shelter from the near-record low temperatures this week. The coldest weather was expected from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. today with a freeze and wind chill warning remaining in effect until 10 a.m., said Eric Oglesby, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. With the wind chill, he said it may feel like it’s in the 20s. “This is going to be coldest air mass this season that we’ve had over our area,” he said. “The last time it dropped below freezing in Punta Gorda was Feb. 18, 2013, two years ago.” He added that weather today in Sarasota will be pretty similar to Charlotte County. The weather should warm up to a high in the lower 60s later today with mostly sunny skies, but tonight should be in the lower 40s, according to the forecast. Saturday and Sunday’s forecast is partly sunny with highs in the mid to upper 70s, and overnight lows in the upper 50s. A cold front that moved in Tuesday night set the stage for the colder temperatures. Then, a reinforcing front came Wednesday night, leading the NWS to issue a cold weather advisory with temperatures as low as the 30s. Some people who didn’t have adequate heating were able to warm up in Sarasota County or Charlotte County shelters that opened after the advisory was issued. The cold spell has also left local farmers scrambling to protect their crops from freezing. “We have taken the necessary precautions for the coming cold weather, such as watering the crops well, and covering some crops with special thermal frost blankets,” wrote Eva Worden, co-owner of Worden Farm, Punta Gorda, in an email to the Sun . “As organic farmers, we work with nature, and focus on the positive aspects of natural phenomena. We know from experience that the cool weather can slow down insect pests, and many of our crops are improved by the cold weather. For example, kale and broccoli develop a sweeter avor when exposed to cold temperatures.” Mongi Zekri, citrus extension agent with University of Florida/Institute of Food and Agricultural Science extension for Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee counties, said freezing temperatures could be damaging to crops, but citrus growers were preparing. He said citrus growers keep their fruit warm through the irrigation process. “They are pumping water from wells of about 70 degrees, so it will warm them up,” he said. Temperatures in the 20s could freeze citrus, he said, but “if it stays in the lower 30s most citrus growers will be ne.” He added that “some of the younger fruit and some of the bloom will be damaged.” Email: sbrokaw@sun-herald.comFreezing temps — then a warmupBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITER SUN PHOTO BY SOMMER BROKAWMike Tamburro dressed in layers on a chilly Thursday morning while he played bocce ball at the Port Charlotte Beach Park.PHOTO PROVIDED BY WORDEN FARMWorden Farm, an organic family farm in South west Florida, had to cover some of their crops with special thermal frost blankets to protect them from freezing temperatures.

The Sun /Friday, February 20, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 13 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT — Three petitions contributing to a master development plan for a wellness center and plaza near the Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa were approved unanimously Thursday morning by the city’s Planning and Zoning Advisory Board. Dr. Grigory Pogrebinsky, a past bidder to operate the Springs, won unanimous approval from board members to annex, zone and rezone 14.1 acres of private land he owns to the south and southwest of the cityowned Springs, located at Ortiz Boulevard and Trionfo Avenue. Working together with city staff and a private engineer ing rm, Pogrebinsky plans to use his land to bring people to the area with commercial, institutional and residential development, which he estimates to cost about $50 million for investors. “It was a 100 percent success,” Pogrebinsky said about the meeting. “Everybody was very excited about it.” The city of North Port and Sarasota County jointly bought the Springs in 2010 for $5.5 million, and had worked to nd a long-term operator. The county, however, decided to sell its half to the city in July 2014 for $2.75 million, when the two entities failed to work out a long-term operator contract. Before the agreement was reached, Pogrebinsky won a shortterm, 12-month bid to operate the Springs in September 2013; however he refused to sign the contract after inspecting the property and nding more than a dozen safety issues. Now, Pogrebinsky said he is ready to invest in the area, since the city bought the 81-acre Springs property and reopened it in September to the public for swimming. Pogrebinsky’s “development master plan” of a wellness center and plaza was presented to the board by Michele Norton, city planning manager; and Jason Green, project manager at Weiler Engineering Corp., based in Southwest Florida. Norton said throughout the build in the area and after, the development will make a prot for the city. “Staff has determined it will be a destination and welcoming corridor,” Norton said to the board. According to the presentation, the plan will be built in three phases that will include the addition of medical ofces, a hotel, residential units, commercial businesses and a public plaza for people to gather and socialize. Some of the land will be designated as “open green” spaces to be left untouched by development to preserve environmental integrity of the property. Thursday, the board approved to annex 0.4 acre of land to use as stormwater treatment, landscape and open space. The board approved a second petition to zone 14.1 acres from medium-density residential zoning designation to activity center designation for “coordinated” development of industrial, commercial professional ofce, residential, public and recreational uses. The last petition the board approved was to rezone the 14.1 acres, including the annexed land, from a Sarasota County residential multifamily district to a city of North Port planned community development zoning district. Green, speaking on behalf of Pogrebinsky at the meeting, said the project has been talked about over the past 20 years. “It is critical we separate privately owned land between publicly owned,” Green said. “We are here to develop the project and to enhance the Springs and community in general.” With the city now in full control of the Springs day spa, North Port commissioners brought Martin County, Fla.-based National and State Park Concessions back as the short-term operator on a one-year contract at an annual cost of $579,360. Pogrebinsky said after the meeting that he thinks the new development will provide free marketing and advertising for the city. Norton said the city played host to a public meeting last fall to deter mine whether residents in the Springs community would support the development. She said many were OK with the development, as long as it didn’t hinder their access to the Springs, or hurt the environment. City Commissioner Jacqueline Moore said she likes Pogrebinsky’s approach of focusing on wellness in the area and using the Springs for a “holistic approach.” Pogrebinsky said the wellness center would combine traditional medicine with holistic practices. Holistic medicine utilizes conventional and alternative therapies to prevent and treat disease. Mayor Rhonda DiFranco said she thought the Building Division and Pogrebinsky addressed all the concerns she had about the zoning of the land. She said there will need to be future negotiations of expanding sewage pipes developers lay down, so the rest of the community can benet from a centralized sewage system. “He has to run water to his facilities, so you want to lay it one time,” DiFranco said. She said “we” are starting to move forward with the Warm Mineral Springs area, and she does not plan to hold back progress. Green said they want to work together with the city, but it is a “two-way street.” “Our intent is to work with the city,” Green said. “We want to do it efciently, and we want to do it once.” The petitions approved by the advisory board will be brought in front of city commissioners for approval at a regular commission meeting March 23.Email:‘Master development’ envisioned for Springs communityBy ALLISON SHIRKSTAFF WRITER CITY’S ‘CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL’ FOR NEW ZONINGIn order to rezone the 14.1 acres to “activity center” designation for coordinated development, the applicant, Dr. Grigory Pogrebinsky, must adhere to the following conditions: Development of the 14.1-acre site shall be limited to 269,000 square feet of nonresidential space and 72 residential multifamily units. Any changes to the development master plan will require City Commission approval. All buildings must be limited to three stories of enclosed space. All buildings will be oriented along right of way frontage in an effort to reduce suburban-style parking. The developer must coordinate with Sarasota County Area Transit to determine the location of bus shelters. The developer will provide “cohesive” design, which will incorporate design elements of the Warm Mineral Springs community and the Sarasota School of Architecture features. The water mains on Ortiz Boulevard and Trionfo Avenue must be completed and approved for service. The public water system will become the property of the city of North Port, and will be dedicated to the city for operation and maintenance. — Source: City of North Port MAP PROVIDED BY THE CITY OF NORTH PORTDr. Grigory Pogrebinsky said he plans to use 19 acres of land he owns to the south and southwest of the city-owned Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa, o Ortiz Boulevard, for future develop ment.

The session in Tampa was the rst of ve nationwide that will mold the topics addressed later at the White House Conference on Aging, a once-a-decade meeting that has led to change on every thing from senior housing to Social Security. In opening panels, speakers focused on four key areas: ensuring that seniors have the nancial means to sustain retirement; promoting healthy aging; providing long-term services and supports; and protecting older Americans from nancial exploitation, abuse and neglect. Participants representing government, academia and social service agencies also came with pet issues of their own, and closed-door after noon meetings were expected to begin generating possible solutions.

Last month was the second warmest January on record globally, behind 2007, with temperatures 1.4 degrees above the average for the 20th century, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Meteorologists calculated that the United States in January was 2.9 degrees warmer than normal, making it the 24th warmest January since 1880. In America, January and the entire winter so far has been a tale of two nations: record hot in the West, bone-chilling cold to the East. While Boston is buried in more than 8 feet of snow, parts of Pacic Northwest that depend on winter snow have gotten next to nothing. “Winter seems to have completely forgotten about us out here,” said Kathie Dello, deputy director of the Oregon Climate Service at Oregon State University. “If we could nd a way of sending that snow out here, we’d really, really appreciate that.” Flowers have already started popping out and the ski industry is desperate, Dello said: “You can’t ski on rain, you can’t ski on dirt.” But you can certainly ski in New England, if you can dig out. California is having its warmest winter on record for a second consecutive year. And for the rst time, San Francisco had no rain in January.Winter weather both toasty and coldBy SETH BORENSTEINAP SCIENCE WRITERWINTER | 4 AP PHOTOSAustin Carlson, left, and Jim Post, of Jamestown, N.Y., walk across an ice-covered bridge Thursday, in Nashville, Tenn.

WASHINGTON — An extra cup or two of coffee may be OK after all. More eggs, too. But you denitely need to drink less sugary soda. And, as always, don’t forget your vegetables. Recommendations Thursday from a government advisory committee call for an environmentally friendly diet lower in red and processed meats. But the panel would reverse previous guidance on limiting dietary cholesterol. And it says the caffeine in a few cups of coffee could actually be good for you. The committee also is backing off stricter limits on salt, though it says Americans still get much too much. It’s recommending the rst real limits on added sugar, saying that’s especially a problem for young people. The Agriculture and Health and Human Services Departments will take those recommendations into account in writing nal 2015 dietary guidelines by the end of the year. The guidelines affect nutritional patterns throughout the country — from federally subsidized school lunches to food package labels to your doctor’s advice. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said “it is by no means over” with the release of the report.

Giuliani said at a New York City event on Wednesday night, “I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America.” “He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country,” said Giuliani, who sought the 2008 GOP presidential nomination. His comments were reported by Politico and the New York Daily News. Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said it’s time for Republican leaders to “stop this nonsense.” Several likely GOP candidates declined to get involved Thursday.Tsarnaev lawyers ask US appeals court to move trialBOSTON (AP) — A lawyer for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pressed a federal appeals court Thursday to move his trial out of Massachusetts, citing “saturation publicity” about the case and the large number of people in the state who were personally affected by the deadly attack. In arguments before the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, federal public defender Judith Mizner said the local jury pool is “connected to the case in many ways” and cannot be counted on to be fair and impartial. “This attack was viewed as an attack on the marathon itself and an attack on the city of Boston,” Mizner told a three-judge panel of the appeals court. Mizner said many of the prospective jurors who have been questioned individually by U.S. District Court Judge George O’Toole Jr. have cited close personal ties to the case, including a man who said his wife is a nurse who treated victims in an intensive care unit the day of the bombings. If the trial is moved out of state, “people won’t come to it with the same set of emotions and feelings,” she said.One-time order allows same-sex marriage in TexasAUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Defying Texas’ longstanding ban on gay marriage, a lesbian couple wed in Austin on Thursday immediately after being granted a marriage license under a one-time court order because one of the women has cancer. The women said their union was the rst legal same-sex marriage since voters approved the ban in the ercely conservative state in 2005, though Texas’ attorney general immediately appealed to the state Supreme Court. The court later issued an emergency stay that blocks other gay couples from obtaining marriage licenses but didn’t address the Austin marriage. Thursday’s license was issued exclusively for Suzanne Bryant and Sarah Goodfriend, who has ovarian cancer, in liberalleaning Travis County. State District Judge David Wahlberg sided with the couple and directed the Travis County clerk to stop relying on “the unconstitutional Texas prohibitions against same-sex marriage as a basis for not issuing a marriage license.” County Clerk Dana Debeauvoir said she issued the license, but that any other licenses must be court ordered.Rabbi pleads guilty to taping nude women at ritual bathWASHINGTON (AP) — A prominent Orthodox rabbi acknowledged Thursday that for years he videotaped women at a Jewish ritual bath, recording more than 150 women as they changed clothes and got in and out of a shower. Barry Freundel pleaded guilty to 52 counts of voy eurism during a hearing at D.C. Superior Court. Each count is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.TransCanada to seek US approval for $600M Upland PipelineBISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The Canadian company behind the long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline will seek U.S. government approval for another pipeline — this one going north. Industry ofcials in North Dakota say the proposed Upland Pipeline could reduce reliance on the railroads to ship crude following recent concerns about safety. TransCanada Corp.’s proposed $600 million Upland Pipeline would begin near the northwestern North Dakota oil hub of Williston and go north into Canada about 200 miles. At peak operation it would transport up to 300,000 barrels of oil daily, connecting with other pipelines, including the Energy East pipeline across Canada. “We expect Upland and Energy East to play a key role in providing sufcient pipeline capacity to improve supply security for eastern Canadian and U.S. reners, and reduce the need for for eign imports,” TransCanada said in a statement.Police: 19-year-old suspect in Vegas killing was gunmanLAS VEGAS (AP) — Police made an arrest Thursday in the mysterious road-rage killing of a Las Vegas mother, apprehending a teenage neighbor who had a history with the family before the shootout. Erich Nowsch, 19, was arrested on suspicion of murder after SWAT teams surrounded his home a block away from the residence of Tammy Meyers, the woman killed. Authorities believe Nowsch was the gunman in the attack, Las Vegas police Capt. Chris Tomaino said. He has not been formally charged. A shirtless Nowsch was led into a car by an ofcer and taken to police headquarters for questioning. Police are still looking for one additional suspect. “We still have a lot of investigative work to do,” Tomaino said.Theater shooting trial could start sooner than thoughtCENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Jury selection has moved more quickly than expected in the Colorado theater shooting case and the trial could begin as early as May, a judge said. Direct questioning of potential jurors had been set to last four months, but Judge Carlos Samour said Wednesday it could wrap up in six weeks instead, The Aurora Sentinel reported. WASHINGTON (AP) — In the ght against violent extremism, President Barack Obama argues the U.S. has one thing going for it that Europe doesn’t: a long tradition of warmly embracing its immigrants, including Muslims. With the Islamic State group spreading and terrorists gaining strength in the Mideast and Africa, Obama has sought to use this week’s White House summit on violent extremism to urge the world to broaden its response far beyond military interventions. U.S. airstrikes have managed to blunt some of the militants’ gains in Iraq and Syria, but they don’t address the extreme ideologies that underpin deadly groups such as IS, al-Shabab and Boko Haram. During the summit’s closing session Thursday at the State Department, Obama urged delegates from 65 countries to “confront the warped ideology” espoused by terror groups, particularly efforts to use Islam to justify violence. “These terrorists are desperate for legitimacy and all us have a responsibility to refute the notion that groups like ISIL somehow represent Islam, because that is a falsehood that embraces the terrorist narrative,” Obama said, using an acronym to refer to the Islamic State. The president urged Arab nations in particular to take steps to quell sectarian violence and boost economic and educational opportunities that could provide young people in particular options beyond joining terror groups. But even in the U.S., not all Muslim-Americans feel like full members of American society, and security experts warned against assuming that the U.S. is impervious to those who seek to recruit and radicalize. Since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the U.S. has largely been spared the terrorist assaults that have hit cities in Denmark, Belgium and France, growing out of radical interpretations of Islam. In the weeks since the Charlie Hebdo newspaper shootings in Paris, Obama and other U.S. gures have por trayed the U.S. as being at a lower risk. After all, America is known as the “Great Melting Pot,” where minorities of all stripes are made to feel at home. “In the U.S., you can be 100 percent American and 100 percent anything else. In Europe, you have to reduce the percentage of anything else to be more European,” said Ahmed Younis, a prominent Muslim-American leader participating in the summit. “People burn and destroy what they perceive to not be their own. They do not burn and destroy what they perceive to own.”President aims to show Islam, Western communities can coexist HAVANA (AP) — A year after he took ofce, President Ronald Reagan placed Cuba on a list of state sponsors of terror for backing leftist guerrilla groups in Central and South America. Cuba remained on the list as the Soviet Union fell, Fidel Castro stopped aiding insurgents and the global focus on terrorism turned to the Mideast. For outside observers, Cuba’s place on the list was a Cold War relic that showed the power of the communist government’s enemies in Congress. For Cuba, it became the most potent symbol of what many here call ve decades of bully ing by the superpower to the north. Now, as the two countries move to end a half-century of acrimony, President Barack Obama has made clear that he will take Cuba off the terror list, saying in a televised address on his new Cuba policy late last year that “at a time when we are focused on threats from al-Qaida to ISIL, a nation that meets our conditions and renounces the use of terrorism should not face this sanction.” Cuba’s top diplomat for U.S. affairs heads to Washington next week for a second round of talks on restoring ties. Cubans rang ing from President Raul Castro to ordinary citizens describe their country’s removal from the list as one of the most important elements of that detente, one that could help heal a great injustice. In Cuban eyes, they are the victims of terror, not the U.S. For Cubans, the worst act of aggression against the island since its 1959 revolution occurred when 73 people aboard a Cuban passenger ight from Barbados to Havana died in a 1976 bombing blamed on exiles with ties to U.S.-backed anti-Castro groups. Both of the men accused of masterminding the crime took shelter in Florida, where one, Luis Posada Carriles, lives quietly to this day. “This is a small country and everybody knows somebody who knows someone who was on that plane,” said Juan Carlos Cremata, a lm and theater director who was 13 when his father, a 41-yearold airline dispatcher, was killed in what Cubans call “the Crime of Barbados.” “The U.S. is going to show that it’s an intelligent country because the most absurd, the most stupid thing in the world, is to put Cuba on a list of terrorist nations,” Cremata said. Removal from the U.S. list could provide Cuba protection against lawsuits inside the United States because inclusion on it strips countries of important immunities that U.S. courts normally grant to foreign governments. With Cuba and the U.S. moving to tighten trade ties, protecting Cuba and any U.S. corporate partners from lawsuits by people claiming to have been harmed by the Castro government could prove essential. “From the Cuban point of view, resolving this problem of the list also resolves this type of concern,” said Jesus Arboleya, an international relations professor at the University of Havana who served as Cuban consul in Washington from 1979 to 1982. “It isn’t convenient for anyone that they call Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism.”Cuba sees terror promise as healing of historic wound AP PHOTOIn this Dec. 19 photo, a U.S. and Cuban ag hang from a balcony in Old Havana, Cuba. TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Brenda Armendariz, her husband and their two Mexico-born children were hoping to resolve their constant fears of being deported after President Barack Obama issued his latest executive orders on immigration. But now that a federal judge in Texas has blocked Obama’s efforts to protect four million more immigrants, her family is disillusioned and her children feel stuck as the president’s offer of temporary legal status moves frustratingly beyond their reach. About a third of the immigrants now living in the United States illegally would be eligible for temporary protection if Obama’s latest orders are upheld in court, either because they were brought to the U.S. as children or because their own children have legal status in the country. But the advances and retreats on reform have been so frequent over the years that many thousands of immigrants who are already eligible for protection have given up for now — they aren’t applying for the work permits and Social Security numbers they are entitled to under Obama’s rst executive order in 2012. There is a litany of reasons why, including general distrust of the government, fear they’ll be deported, and the nearly $500 in fees it costs to apply. But the constant uncertainty created by Washington’s political divide also keeps them away. About 150 people have reached out to Arizona immigration attorney Lance Wells this week, reacting with bafement, fear and dismay to the latest reversal, he said. His message: “Be patient guys. We kind of knew this would be coming.” But their patience is wearing thin. Armendariz and her husband came to Tucson a decade ago with a son and daughter, meaning to stay just long enough to earn some cash and head home to the Mexican state of Sonora. Instead, they overstayed their visas and settled down. Those children are now 21 and 13, joined by two American citizen siblings: a 3-year-old boy and a 1-month-old girl. Like so many other immigrants, this family has “mixed status,” and the mother, father and two oldest children didn’t qualify for protection under Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program, nearly three years ago. With the goal of keeping such families together, Obama’s executive orders announced in November would have applied to the older siblings starting on Wednesday, and the parents starting in May. U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen of Texas temporarily blocked both expansions after Obama’s opponents sued, calling it an overreach of presidential power. The Obama administration plans to appeal.Immigrants feel stuck after Obama orders blocked AP PHOTOIn this Wednesday photo, Brenda Armendariz, originally from Mexico, sits in her mobile home, in Tucson, Ariz.

Spokeswoman Jen Psaki says Kerry will meet Sunday with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif in Geneva, Switzerland, where U.S. and Iranian negotiators are to resume talks Friday on an agreement. Kerry will travel to Geneva after a brief visit to London, where he will hold talks with British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond. Kerry last met Zarif earlier this month in Munich.US coastal combat ship to debut at South Korea drillsSINGAPORE (Bloomberg) — The U.S. Navy will send its new combat ship tailored for Asia’s shallow coastal waters to join military drills with South Korea that North Korea calls a prelude for invasion. Carrying a helicopter, a vertical takeoff unmanned aerial vehicle, a 57 mm gun and 21 missiles, the USS Fort Worth will become the rst Littoral Combat Ship to take part in the annual Foal Eagle exercises starting next month off the coast of South Korea. “The specic role that Fort Worth will play in Foal Eagle is really no different than any other Navy ship has for years,” Rear Admiral Charles Williams told reporters Tuesday in Singapore on board Fort Worth. “Fort Worth’s role will be just a normal part of that exercise,” said Williams, who is Logistics Group Western Pacic Commander. The 389-foot LCS — the second to have been deployed to the region — will operate in Asia for 16 months, primarily in Southeast Asia, within the 7th Fleet grouping. In North Asia the ship will make port visits in Japan, a U.S. ally immersed in a territorial spat with China, and Admiral Williams said the LCS could also operate in South Asia.Colorado residents ask feds to block legal potDENVER (AP) — Colorado already is being sued by two neighboring states for legalizing marijuana. Now, the state faces groundbreaking lawsuits from its own residents, who are asking a federal judge to order the new recreational industry to close. The owners of a mountain hotel and a southern Colorado horse farm argue in a pair of lawsuits led Thursday in U.S. District Court in Denver that the 2012 marijuanalegalization measure has hurt their property and that the marijuana industry is stinky and attracts unsavory visitors. The lawsuits are the rst in any state that has legalized recreational or medical marijuana in which its own residents are appealing to the federal government to block pot laws. “It is a bedrock principle of the United States Constitution that federal law is the supreme law of the land,” said David Thompson, a lawyer representing the plaintiffs. “The people of Colorado are free to advocate for a change (in federal drug law), but they must do so through their elected representatives in Congress.” The lawsuits are also the rst to claim that federal racketeering laws allow them to win damages from pot businesses that out federal law. The plaintiffs have not specied amounts they would seek.Murder suspect dubbed ‘Michelangelo of buttocks injections’PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Gothic hip-hop artist who did illegal cosmetic surgery on the side boasted at her murder trial Thursday that her body sculpting work was so popular she was dubbed “the Michelangelo of buttocks injections.” Padge Victoria Windslowe, who per formed under the name “Black Madam,” is accused of killing a 20-yearold dancer from London during a procedure at an airport hotel that involved industrial-grade silicone and Krazy Glue. “Everyone was calling me ‘the Michelangelo of buttocks injections,’” Windslowe, 45, of Philadelphia told a judge at a nal pretrial motion Thursday morning, just before her trial got under way. “God’s blessed my hands with everything I touch. I make lots of money, in lots of ways.” | WORLD NEWS BRIEFSUS Embassy: Turkey, US sign deal to train, arm Syrian rebelsISTANBUL (AP) — Turkey and the United States signed an agreement Thursday to train and arm Syrian rebels ghting the Islamic State group, said the U.S. Embassy in Ankara. The two countries have been in talks about such a pact for several months. The deal was signed Thursday evening by U.S Ambassador John Bass and Turkish Foreign Ministry undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioglu, said Embassy spokesman Joe Wierichs. He gave no further details. Sinirlioglu called the deal “an important step” in the strategic partner ship between Turkey and the United States, according to Turkish state-run Anadolu Agency.Walesa: Solidarity in sanctions would change Putin’s policyWARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland’s former president and Solidarity leader Lech Walesa said Thursday he believes that global solidarity in economic sanctions against Russia would lead President Vladimir Putin to change his aggressive policy in Ukraine. “We can quickly win against Putin, but we need solidarity,” Walesa told The Associated Press in an interview. He said concerted and consistent decisions “not to buy something, not to sell something” would allow the world to “quickly lead Putin and Russia toward ending this idea of struggle. “We need Russia,” he said. “Russia means great opportunities, Russia is a huge country. So we need to help it to start thinking in the Western way.” European politicians have indicated that being united on an approach toward Moscow was a main priority, but also a difcult task. Financial and other sanctions that Western countries have imposed on Putin’s government and pro-Kremlin oligarchs have so far done little to stop ghting in eastern Ukraine. Europe remains divided on the scope and duration of the sanctions.Puerto Rico Powerball winner appears, but anonymouslySAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — The winner of a Powerball ticket in Puerto Rico appeared a week after hitting the $564 million jackpot but has opted to remain anonymous, ofcials said Thursday. The person stopped by the Puerto Rico Lottery ofce with their ticket and has 60 days to decide how they want to claim the prize they will share with winners in Texas and North Carolina. The unidentied winner can choose between a lump sum payment of $101 million, or 30 payments over 29 years. The ticket was sold at a Shell gasoline station in the southern coastal city of Ponce, but the winner is not from there, said Antonio Perez Lopez, assistant secretary of the Puerto Rico Lottery. He did not provide further details. Puerto Rico began selling Powerball tickets just four months ago. A winner has not been identied in Texas, while lottery ofcials in North Carolina have said that a lawyer informed them a client with a winning ticket is waiting to claim the money. Winners have 180 days to claim their prize.Norwegian Muslims plan ‘ring of peace’ around synagogueOSLO, Norway (AP) — After a series of attacks against Jews in Europe, young Muslims in Norway plan to form a “ring of peace” around a synagogue in Oslo. In a Facebook invitation for the event Saturday, organizers say “Muslims want to show that we strongly reject any type of anti-Semitism and that we are here to support them.” About 1,500 people have accepted the invitation. Like at other synagogues in Scandinavia, security around the Oslo synagogue has been raised in the wake of last week’s shootings in Copenhagen. In the second of two shooting attacks, the gunman killed a Jewish security guard outside a synagogue in the city. The head of Oslo’s Jewish community, Ervin Kohn, welcomed the idea and told Norwegian broadcaster NRK he hopes for a big turnout. adno=50477339 No Clipping Required.F ON AVERAGE, AARP MEMBERS ENJOY 71$404 So-tVINGS1when they switch from companies like' GEICO, State Farm and Allstate 'Your savings could CALL THE HARTFORD A pI Auto Insurance' be even more! 1-888-550-1534 Program(-.,aHARTFORDLl l 1111111111111111111111 lllllllllllllllllllll1 11111111/The AARP Auto Insurance Program from The Hartford.Saving is easy!

(AP) — Pennsylvania State Police are crying fowl after crates of live chickens hurtled off a tractor-trailer on a Pennsylvania highway and the birds flew the coop. The feather-ruffling incident happened at around 6:30 a.m. Thursday on Interstate 80 in Nescopeck Township, near Berwick. State police say about 500 chickens fell from the truck. Police and Department of Transportation workers spent about an hour gathering up the fowl, some living and some dead. Police say PennDOT will hand the live chickens over to the Agriculture Department and the dead ones will be thrown away. Police say the driver of the truck did not realize he lost his load and kept going. Traffic wasn’t affected by the cleanup.ODD NEWS Crying fowl: Crates of chickens fly out of tractor-trailer at least two contaminated endoscopes that were used to diagnose and treat pancreatic and bile-duct problems. The infections occurred even though the instruments had been cleaned according to the manufacturer’s instructions, the hospital said. The episode is the latest in a series of outbreaks involving such instruments. “You can very easily do everything right and still have some contamination,” said Dr. Deverick Anderson, an infectious-disease expert at Duke University. “We’re nding this is a problem, but it’s probably one that we don’t have a very good solution to right now.” Lawrence Muscarella, a Philadelphia infectioncontrol expert, said the recent incidents point to a design aw that needs to be addressed. An endoscope — or more specically in this case, a duodenoscope — is a thin, exible ber-optic tube that is inserted down the throat to enable a doctor to examine an organ. It typically has a light and a miniature camera. “We notied all patients who had this type of procedure, and we were using seven different scopes. Only two of them were found to be infected. In an abundance of caution, we notied everybody,” UCLA spokeswoman Dale Tate said. The hospital said it has since changed its disinfection procedures, and they go beyond normal standards. On Thursday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an advisory warning doctors that even when a manufacturer’s cleaning instructions are followed, infectious germs may linger in the devices. Their complex design and tiny parts make complete disinfection extremely difcult, the advisory said. In a statement, the FDA said it is trying to determine what more can be done to reduce such infections. But it said that pulling the device from the market would deprive hundreds of thousands of patients of “this benecial and often life-saving procedure.” “The FDA believes at this time that the continued availability of these devices is in the best interest of the public health,” the agency said. More than 500,000 patients undergo procedures using duodenoscopes in the U.S. every year, according to the FDA.SUPERBUGFROM PAGE 1 guidelines in 2010: Eat more fruits and vegetables and whole grains; eat less saturated fats, salt and sugar.Eggs are OKThe report says dietary cholesterol now is “not considered a nutrient of concern for overconsumption.” This follows increasing medical research showing the amount of cholesterol in your bloodstream is more complicated than once thought. The committee says available evidence “shows no appreciable relationship” between heart disease and how much dietary cholesterol you eat, but it still recommends eating less saturated fat. As in previous years, the report advises limiting saturated fats to 10 percent of total calories.Watch the added sugarAdded sugars should be around 200 calories a day — about the amount in one 16-ounce sugary drink, says the advisory committee, which is made up of doctors and nutritionists. The recommendation is part of a larger push in recent years to help consumers isolate added sugars from naturally occurring ones like those in fruit and milk. Added sugars generally add empty calories to the diet. Americans now get about 13 percent of their calories from added sugar, or 268 calories a day, the committee says. Older children, adolescents and young adults generally take in more. The 10 percent recommended by the committee is “a target within reach,” says Miriam Nelson, a Tufts University professor of nutrition who served on the panel.A softer approach on saltSodium adds up quickly. A turkey sandwich and a cup of soup can average about 2,200 milligrams. That’s just under the committee’s recommendation of 2,300 milligrams a day for all people, even those most at risk for heart disease. The 2010 dietary guidelines had recommended those at risk for heart disease limit sodium to 1,500 milligrams. The new report said lowering to that amount can still be helpful for some. But the new advice follows a 2013 report by the Institute of Medicine that said there is no good evidence that eating less than 2,300 milligrams a day of sodium offers benets. With the average American eating more than 3,400 milligrams daily, the panel recommends at least trying to reduce sodium intake by 1,000 milligrams a day if the goals are unattainable.A hearty endorsement for coffeeThe report looks at caffeine for the rst time, and says coffee is OK — even good for you. The panel says there is strong evidence that 3 to 5 cups a day can be part of a healthy diet, and there’s consistent evidence that it’s even associated with reduced risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease. The advice comes with some caveats — don’t add calories with cream, milk and added sugars. The report also recommends pregnant women limit caffeine to two cups of coffee a day.Eat a plant-based dietThe panel recommends eating more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds. A plant-based diet is “more health promoting and is associated with less environmental impact” than the current U.S. diet, which is high in meat. The report stops short of telling people not to eat meat, saying “no food groups need to be eliminated completely to improve sustainability outcomes.” Overall, the panel advises a diet lower in red and processed meat, and in a footnote says lean meats can be part of a healthy diet.DIETFROM PAGE 1 What’s happened is that high pressure — nicknamed the ridiculously resilient ridge — has parked just west of California with unusually warm ocean water, preventing storms and cold from sneaking into the West, according to NOAA climatologist Jake Crouch. Then the jet stream dips south from Canada, bringing the cold to the Midwest and East and the cold in the East combines with the warm water of the Atlantic to provide big snow in the Northeast, he said. And while it had been chilly in the East and Midwest, up until this week it hadn’t been too record breaking, especially compared to what’s been going on out West, Crouch said. There were 3,499 daily warm temperature records broken in January, compared to 775 cold ones, he said.WINTERFROM PAGE 1 supplement the Family and Medical Leave Act, which she called “grossly inadequate.” “We need something that goes beyond that,” she said. “It’s happening in each of our families today. It’s just too important.” The rst White House Conference on Aging in 1961 helped lay groundwork for Medicare and featured addresses from President Dwight D. Eisenhower and President-Elect John F. Kennedy. Four succeeding conferences in the decades that followed led to other legislation affecting seniors and the creation of the Senate Special Committee on Aging. This year’s events come as baby boomers — the 78 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964 — are moving into old age. But decades of stagnancy on key issues facing older adults and the perception of a paralyzed Congress left some participants skeptical about what change the White House conference could actually stir. Kathy Black, a geriatric social worker and professor at the University of South Florida at SarasotaManatee who attended the forum, said the conference might be more a symbolic gesture than an agent for change. Aging advocates, she said, are not only dealing with a dysfunctional Washington, but a public skeptical of government overreach and a host of other national problems that garner more attention amid relatively austere budgets. “I don’t have high expectations about what policy goals might be accomplished for older adults in the next decade,” Black said, “though the needs are great.” However, Cecilia Munoz, director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, said she believed the issues being raised could yield bipartisan support. “These are issues that are very deeply per sonal as well as deeply nonpartisan,” she said. “The notion that we should be focused on things like retirement security and long-term care and healthy aging simply should be beyond partisan politics.” Bevan Rogel of Tampa said the discussions are useful even if they don’t bring major legislation, simply to get people talking about the issues and debating solutions. Other forums are planned for Phoenix on March 31, Seattle on April 2, Cleveland on April 27, and Boston on May 28.AGINGFROM PAGE 1 WASHINGTON (AP) — Britain’s electronic spying agency, in cooperation with the U.S. National Security Agency, hacked into the networks of a Dutch company to steal codes that allow both governments to seamlessly eavesdrop on mobile phones worldwide, according to the documents given to journalists by Edward Snowden. A story about the documents posted Thursday on the website The Intercept offered no details on how the intelligence agencies employed the eavesdropping capability — providing no evidence, for example, that they misused it to spy on people who weren’t valid intelligence targets. But the surreptitious operation against the world’s largest manufacturer of mobile phone data chips is bound to stoke anger around the world. It fuels an impression that the NSA and its British counter part will do whatever they deem necessary to further their surveillance prowess, even if it means stealing information from law-abiding Western companies. The targeted company, Netherlands-based Gemalto, makes “subscriber identity modules,” or SIM cards, used in mobile phones and credit cards. One of the company’s three global headquarters is in Austin, Texas. Its clients include AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint, The Intercept reported. The Intercept offered no evidence of any eavesdropping against American customers of those providers, and company officials told the website they had no idea their networks had been penetrated. Experts called it a major compromise of mobile phone security. The NSA did not immediately respond to a request for comment. In the past, former agency ofcials have defended using extra-legal techniques to further surveillance capabilities, saying the U.S. needs to be able to eavesdrop on terrorists and U.S. adversaries who communicate on the same networks as everyone else. The NSA, like the CIA, breaks the espionage and hacking laws of other countries to get information that helps American interests. Still, the methods in this case may prove controversial, as did earlier Snowden revelations that the NSA was hacking transmissions among Google’s data centers. The Intercept reported that British government hackers targeted Gemalto engineers around the world much as the U.S. often accuses Chinese government hackers of targeting Western companies — stealing credentials that got the hackers into the company’s networks. Once inside, the British spies stole encryption keys that allow them to decode the data that passes between mobile phones and cell towers. That allows them to ungarble calls, texts or emails intercepted out of the air. At one point in June 2010, Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ, as its signals intelligence agency is known, intercepted nearly 300,000 keys for mobile phone users in Somalia, The Intercept reported. “Somali providers are not on GCHQ’s list of interest,” the document noted, according to the Intercept. “(H)owever, this was usefully shared with NSA.”Snowden leak: NSA helped British steal cellphone codes AP FILE PHOTOIn this June 6, 2013, photo, a sign stands outside the National Security Administration (NSA) campus in Fort Meade, Md.

The Sun /Friday, February 20, 2015 WIRE Page 5 WORLD NEWS | WORLD BRIEFSFrench gov’t survives no-confidence vote triggered by rebelsPARIS (AP) — France’s prime minister survived a no-condence vote Thursday called after rebel lawmakers in his Socialist Party teamed up with conservatives to ght his pro-business policies. A total of 234 lawmakers voted for the censure motion that triggered a political crisis and forced Prime Minister Manuel Valls to defend his economic views. The count was far below the 289 needed for the motion to pass and bring down the government.Germany rejects Greek olive branchATHENS, Greece (AP) — Germany quickly rejected a conciliatory bailout proposal by Greece on Thursday, dampening hopes that emergency talks might break a deadlock threatening the country with default and an exit from the euro. The Greek government asked to extend its rescue loan agreement by six months, in order to give all sides more time to hash out a more permanent deal. That goes much of the way toward satisfy ing an ultimatum from the 19-country eurozone. It held back, however, on offering to continue implementing a full series of budget cuts and reforms that the eurozone has required since 2010 in exchange for loans, but that Greece blames for devastating its economy. Germany was quick to say the plan was not good enough. DEBALTSEVE, Ukraine (AP) — For the rebel ghters who seized control of this strategic town, Thursday was a day of jubilation and bragging of victory. The retreating Ukrainian soldiers were grim, stunned and relieved to have escaped with their lives as the scope of their losses became clearer: at least 13 dead and hundreds missing, captured or wounded. Rebel ghters roamed the debris-littered streets of Debaltseve, laughing, hugging and posing for photos a day after the fall of the furiously contested railway hub. Associated Press journalists found its neighbor hoods destroyed and all under the control of the rebels. On the road out of town, dozens of Ukrainian military vehicles, many riddled with bullet holes and with their windshields smashed, were heading to the government-held city of Artemivsk. The soldiers inside described weeks of harrowing rebel shelling, followed by a hasty retreat. “We left under heavy re, driving on back roads,” said a soldier who gave only his rst name, Andrei. “As we were leaving, we were attacked by artillery and grenade launchers. We came under repeated attack by tanks and assault groups.” As rebels waved separat ist ags, Nikolai Kozitsyn, a Russian Cossack leader and prominent warlord in the rebel-controlled east, drove around in a Humvee-like vehicle captured from Ukrainian troops. All around lay the wrecked remains of Ukrainian armored vehicles. Rebel ghters, many of them Cossacks, searched through the bunkers and tents of an abandoned military encampment, looking to salvage equipment and clothing left behind. Two rebel ghters inspected an abandoned tank, declaring it a “gift” from the Ukrainian army. They then grabbed a bloodied blue-and-yellow Ukrainian ag and ground it into the frozen earth with their boots. But in a reminder of the dangers, one vehicle carrying Cossacks hit a land mine, killing one rebel ghter and wounding another. Cossacks, who spear headed imperial Russia’s expansion and helped guard its far-ung outposts, trace their historic roots to both Ukraine and southern Russia. They faced persecution under Bolshevik rule but resurfaced after the 1991 Soviet collapse and are now recognized as an ethnic group who consider themselves descendants of the czarist-era horsemen. By Thursday, 90 per cent of government forces had been withdrawn, a military spokesman said, though he gave no precise gure. Late Wednesday, President Petro Poroshenko said 2,475 soldiers were safely pulled out. The ofcial toll stood at 13 soldiers killed, 157 wounded, more than 90 captured and at least 82 missing. But retreating soldiers described many more killed during a hasty and disorderly withdrawal, and the death toll was likely to rise.Separatists celebrate control of key Ukraine town AP PHOTOA pro-Russia rebel holds a ag of the rebel-held city of Luhansk in Debaltseve, eastern Ukraine, Thursday. BEIRUT (AP) — As the Islamic State group tries to expand and take root across the Middle East, it is struggling in Syria — part of its heartland — where it has stalled or even lost ground while ghting multiple enemies on several fronts. Signs of tension and power struggles are emerging among the ranks of its foreign ghters. The extremists remain a formidable force, and the group’s hold on about a third of Iraq and Syria remains rm. But it appears to be on the defensive in Syria for the rst time since it swept through the territory last year and is suffering from months of U.S.-led coalition airstrikes and the myriad factions ghting it on the ground. “They are struggling with new challenges that did not exist before,” said Lina Khatib, director of the Carnegie Middle East Center in Beirut. Kurdish forces dealt the Islamic State its heaviest setback by driving it from the border town of Kobani in northern Syria last month. Since then, those forces have joined with moderate Syrian rebels to take back about 215 villages in the same area, according to Kurdish commanders and activists, including the Britainbased monitoring group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The gains have strained supply lines between the Islamic State group’s westernmost strongholds in Aleppo province from its core territory in eastern Syria. The Kurdish-rebel forces are now expected to take the ght to some of those strongholds, par ticularly the large towns of Minbij and Jarablus, as well as Tal Abyad, a border crossing with Turkey that is a major avenue for commerce for the extremists. Around the town of alBab, one of the IS group’s westernmost strongholds, the extremists are making tactical withdrawals. Residents have noted a thinner militant presence in al-Bab. The militants are also nding themselves bogged down in costly battles with the government forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad. The extremist group, also known as ISIS or ISIL, has been stuck in erce ghting with the Syrian army near the Deir el-Zour air base, the last major Syrian military stronghold in the eastern province. IS launched an unsuccessful attack to seize the base last month, and it continues to try. After the loss of Kobani, signs of ssures within the IS group have emerged. Bari Abdellatif, a resident of al-Bab who also has ed to Turkey, said friction between Chechen and Uzbek militants recently led to clashes between the two that ended only with the intervention of Omar al-Shishani, a prominent Chechen IS commander. At least two senior gures were killed because of the internal strife, he said. “The prolonged battle for Kobani caused a lot of tensions — ghters accused each other of treachery and eventually turned on each other,” Abdellatif said. Several other activists conrmed recent clashes between factions from different national backgrounds within IS.Signs of tension emerge among Islamic State militants adno=50477424 adno=50477414 Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement (ALL NOW & SAVE UP TO 84%,ON YOUR NEXT PRESQIPTION_.Drug Name Qty (pills) Price* Drug Name Qty (pills) Price*Viagra 100mg 16 94.99 Azilect 1 mg 100 254.99Viagra 50mg 16 74.99 Ranexa 500mg 100 84.99Cialis 20mg 16 94.99 Aciphex 20mg 100 69.99Cialis 5mg 90 124.99 Evista 60mg 100 132.99Levitra 20mg 30 104.99 Flovent 125mcg 360 109.99Spiriva 18mcg 90 164.99 Niaspan 500mg 84 79.99Celebrex 200mg 100 99.99 Boniva 150mg 3 47.99Advair 250/50mcg 180 179.99 Xifaxan 200mg 100 134.99Zetia 10mg 100 104.99 Multaq 400mg 180 564.99Crestor 20mg 100 149.99 Flomax 0.4mg 90 44.99Combivent 18/103mcg 600 114.99 Ranexa ER 1000mg 100 109.99Symbicort 160/4.5ug 360 189.99 Bystolic 5mg 84 89.99Cymbalta 60mg 90 152.99 Benicar 40mg 90 109.99Namenda 10mg 84 92.99 Lipitor 20mg 84 28.99Nexium 40mg 90 104.99 Actos 30mg 100 33.99Diovan 160mg 100 110.99 Vytorin 10/40mg 90 129.99Aggrenox 200/25mg 180 104.99 Nasonex 50mcg 400 89.99Entocort 3mg 100 104.99 Aricept 10mg 84 30.99Propecia 1 mg 100 67.99 Rapaflo 8mg 90 199.99Januvia 100mg 90 204.99 Geodon 40mg 100 109.99Quinine 300mg 84 59.99Ventolin 100mcg 600 59.99 TotalCareMart,Pentasa SR 500mg 100 104.99 Savings made mayAvodart 0.5mg 100 149.99 Over 1500 MedicationsPradaxa 150mg 180 454.99 AvailableVagifem 10mcg 24 93.99 Price Match GuaranteeXarelto 20mg 84 436.99 Call for Free Price QuoteAsacol 800mg 300 221.99 Prescriptions RequiredTricor 145mg 90 114.99 CIPA CertifiedColchicine 0.6mg 100 84.99Abilify 5mg 100 134.99 Toll Free PhoneSingulair 10mg 84 33.99 1 -800-267-2688Plavix 75mg 90 26.99 VPremarin 0.625mg 84 70.99 Toll Free FaxPristiq 50mg 100 129.99 1-800-563-3822Janumet 50/1000mg 84 179.99 All pricing in U.S. dollars and subject to change without notice.

(AP) — Hoping to shed its reputation for offering little more than deadend jobs, Walmart, the nation’s biggest private employer, is giving raises to nearly a half-million workers and offering what it says are more opportunities for advancement. Walmart told The Associated Press that as part of $1 billion it’s spending to change the way it trains and pays workers, the company will give raises to nearly 40 percent of its 1.3 million U.S. employees in the next six months. In addition to raises, Walmart said it plans to make changes to how workers are scheduled and add training programs for sales staff so that employees can more easily map out their future at the company. The company said the changes, will hurt prots this year. WASHINGTON (Bloomberg) — Freddie Mac reported sharply lower prots for the fourth quarter and full year 2014, driven by a decline in the value of derivatives bought to hedge interest rates after accounting gains that had yielded record results. The mortgage-nance company, which has been U.S.-owned since it was bailed out by taxpayers during the 2008 credit crisis, made $7.7 billion last year compared with $47.8 billion in 2013, according to a regulatory ling Thursday. The prot decline was partly attributable to an $8.3 billion loss on derivatives Freddie Mac bought to offset interest-rate risk in its investment portfolio. It doesn’t signal weakness that could lead to the company eventually needing more taxpayer aid, Chief Executive Ofcer Donald H. Layton said during a call with reporters. NEW YORK (AP) — American Express violated U.S. antitrust laws by barring merchants from asking customers to use one credit card over another, a federal judge ruled Thursday. The case was a major blow to American Express, who argued that its policies kept it competitive against the larger payment networks Visa and MasterCard and their bank partners. U.S. District Court Judge Nicholas Garaus said in his ruling that American Express nondisclosure policies harmed competition and prevented merchants from trying to lower their credit card processing costs. He also said AmEx’s policies kept consumers unaware of how much using their credit cards cost merchants, which required merchants to pass along those costs in the form of higher prices. NEW YORK (AP) — A slide in shares of utility companies nudged the U.S. stock market lower Thursday. Utilities were the day’s biggest losers, falling 1 percent, and their losses resumed a trend that emerged in late January. Investors have dumped the dividend-rich stocks as the yield of the U.S. 10-year note creeps higher. Energy stocks also weighed on the market Thursday. Overall, though, U.S. stocks have rebounded from a January slump. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index has reached all-time highs in February, and is on track for its best monthly perfor mance in more than three years. Company earnings are still growing and the economy is continuing to recover. “The U.S. markets are still in a ‘goldilocks’ scenario,” neither too hot, or too cold, said Jeremy Zirin, chief U.S. equity strategist for UBS Wealth Management Research. “Growth is solid, but not spectacular, and most importantly, not stoking high levels of ination.” The Standard & Poor’s 500 index ended the day down 2.23 points, or 0.11 percent, at 2,097.45. The index is still within a fraction of the all-time high of 2,100.34 reached on Tuesday. The index has gained 5.1 percent in February. If it holds those gains through the end of the month, it would be the strongest performance since October 2011. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 44.08 points, or 0.2 percent, to 17,985.77. The Nasdaq composite index rose 18.34 points, or 0.4 percent, to 4,924.70. It was the seventh straight gain for the index.US markets edge lower 0 0

Members of the House Business & Professions Subcommittee voted 9-4 to advance the measure (HB 107), which would remove an 80-year-old state law that requires liquor stores to be standalone facilities. The bill has drawn opposition from independent liquor stores, some county sheriffs and Lakeland-based Publix. Meanwhile, support for the measure has come from retailers including Walmart and Target. Publix lobbyist Teye Reeves said the company’s business model has been to separate its liquor stores from the main grocery operations. “At the end of the day, Walmart has a very specic business model and Publix does not have the same business model, and we’re concerned that it will put us at a competitive disadvantage,” Reeves said. But retailers that support the change say their customers are looking for increased convenience. “A change to Florida’s outdated separation law would remove impediments, expand consumer choice, and level the playing eld for all grocery retailers across the state, all while ensuring safeguards and security remain in place,” Walmart spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg said in an email after the meeting. Target lobbyist Jason Unger told the committee that the company is also looking at its business model, which includes smaller “express” locations in downtowns. “As far as our expansion model, the separation law in Florida is a detriment,” Unger said. The proposal, sponsored by Rep. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, also would make other changes in Florida’s alcohol laws. For example, it would allow beer tasting rooms at craft breweries and end the state’s prohibition on brewers being able to ll 64-ounce “growlers” for off-site consumption as they can with other size containers. But most of Wednesday’s discussion focused on ending the regulation that requires stand-alone liquor stores. Opponents claim the measure could put small independent liquor stores out of business and would make alcohol more accessible to minors. “When a minor walks into a liquor store, they stand out like a sore thumb,” said Charles Bailes, chief executive ofcer of ABC Fine Wine & Spirits. “The barrier is necessary to keep alcohol out of the hands of teens, not because they pur chase it but because they steal it.” Steube said the measure is an effort to reduce regulations, and he disagreed with the contentions that eliminating the barrier will harm small businesses or make it easier for minors to get their hands on liquor. “If you look at the facts and the data and the research, guess where kids get their alcohol from? Friends and families,” Steube said. While voting for the overall bill, Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen, R-Fort Myers, said lawmakers need to balance free-mar ket principles with public safety. “This is not the Berlin Wall, this wall does not need to come down,” Fitzenhagen said. “It’s much safer for our kids to have a separate entrance when they are contemplating risky behavior. And as the mother of two teenagers, I know they do.” Steube’s measure must still go through the Government Operations Appropriations Subcommittee and the Regulatory Affairs Committee before it can reach the House oor. The annual legislative session starts March 3.Publix, Walmart at odds over separating liquor, groceriesBy JIM TURNERNEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA A 3-year-old stood frozen in fear inside a Deerfield Beach liquor store as her mother scrambled to hide a handgun after her boyfriend shot himself in the leg, authorities said. Stefanie Felicia Stern, 28, was arrested Tuesday and faces charges of child neglect without great bodily harm and tampering with evidence, jail records show. She is accused of leaving her daughter alone in a liquor store while she and her boyfriend disposed of a gun with which he had shot himself. During first-appear ance court Wednesday, Broward Judge John “Jay” Hurley set Stern’s bond at $2,000 and appointed a guardian for her daughter. “She left her daughter alone in the liquor store and placed her in harm’s way,” Hurley read from a report. “The daughter is seen frozen in fear as she witnesses these events.” Stern was with her daughter and Reginald Leon Lee, 34, inside the B21 Liquor store at 4591 N. Dixie Hwy. on Dec. 22 when Lee started arguing with another customer, according to her arrest warrant. Lee chased the customer out of the store with a gun; when he walked back inside he fumbled with his pants and shot himself in the right leg, the warrant said. Lee then handed the gun to Stern and the two ran to a nearby alley to hide the gun, leaving the child in the store. When deputies ar rived at the liquor store, Lee told them he had been shot by a stranger and he needed an ambulance, the warrant said. Lee was taken to Broward Health North, where he refused to cooperate with author ities. Lee is not facing charges. Stern told detectives she did not see what happened or how Lee had been shot, the warrant said. Detectives went to the liquor store the next day and viewed surveillance footage that shows the argument, Lee shooting himself, and he and Stern leaving the child and trying to hide the gun, the warrant said.South Florida mom accused of leaving child in liquor storeBy EMILY MILLERSUN SENTINEL WRITER | STATE NEWS BRIEFS‘Sharknado 3’ is filming in OrlandoORLANDO (AP) — Sharknado has descended on Orlando.

A legislative panel voted to delay ranking four proposals requesting $255 million in taxpayer money, saying the crucial decision should instead be made by the entire Florida Legislature when it meets this spring. Rep. Richard Corcoran, chairman of the Legislative Budget Commission, said he remains opposed to all the proposals. The rankings had been considered crucial because lawmakers did not set aside enough money for all four requests in the rst year of a new sports grant program. The state received requests that would help pay for improvements to stadiums used by the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Miami Dolphins, the edgling Orlando City Lions soccer team as well as a request to help with improvements to Daytona International Speedway. Naples man pleads guilty to Medicare fraud, identity theft(Fort Myers News-Press) — A Naples man has pleaded guilty to multiple federal charges related to a Medicare fraud scheme between 2009 and 2012 involving Sunshine Pharmacy and Sunshine Solutions Pharmacy in Collier County. Adam Parrish, 35, admitted to seven counts of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, three counts of aggravated identity theft and three counts of improper use of a Drug Enforcement Agency registration number. Parish faces up to 10 years in prison for the conspir acy charges, two years for each identity theft count and four years for use of the DEA number. No sentencing date has been set. The payments would be spread out over anywhere from 15 to 30 years.

PREP TRACK & FIELD: Season previewHealthy Quinn gets back on trackPUNTA GORDA — It took one breakthrough performance to open Charlotte High School sprinter Devin Quinn’s eyes to his potential last year. Then it took one nagging hamstring injury to almost cut it short. Such is the occasionally tenuous balance of a high-level sprinter — keep the body in peak shape without crossing the line into injury. “That’s coach has us out here every day stretching,” Quinn said. “When you get your body up to a certain level, you can tear your body apart like nothing. You really have to watch the weather and stretch.” If Quinn is going to return to the FHSAA Finals in May — he qualied in two sprint events last season — he will, indeed, need to watch out for the little things. Quinn had seen rsthand the dangers inher ent to sprinters. His sister, Amber — a longtime sprinter herself — tore her hamstring during the Wally Keller Invitational a week before the start of the postseason in 2013. The injury ended her senior season and her Charlotte career. But early in the season last year, injuries were the farthest thing from Quinn’s mind. He had gone into the track season hoping for a return trip to the FHSAA Finals, but sweeping the sprint events at the Edison Relays in the rst week of March made him rethink his goals.

Senior Austin Beswick, a second baseman the size of a power for ward, went 4 for 4 with a double, four runs scored and six RBIs. Eighth-grader Jonathan Joyce, an eln right-hander making his career pitching debut, turned in a workmanlike performance, allowing three hits, striking out three and walking one. It resulted in a 25-3 victory against Cape Christian at Harold Avenue Park in a game that was called after four innings because of the mercy rule. “It feels great,” Beswick said. “It reminds me of Little League. They called me ‘Meat’ because I was always clubbing the ball.” Beswick didn’t knock down any fences Thursday, but his ground balls found holes or eluded gloves. Joyce used a two-seam fastball and some pretty good control to hold Cape Christian in check. “I’ve been pitching ve days,” he said after his rst live-game experience on the mound. He was in a little trouble in the rst with a run in and two out, but catcher Frankie Pucci threw out Hunter Scimeca trying to steal second to end the inning. He allowed a leadoff double to Off to a fast startBy RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONDENT PREP BASEBALL: Community Christian 25, Cape Christian 3Beswick, Joyce power Mustangs’ romp in opener to the regular-season SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNOCommunity Christian’s Austin Beswick makes contact during the Mustangs’ game against Cape Christian on Thursday.

MUSTANGS | 6 UP NEXTCommunity Christian: vs. Everglades, Today, 6 p.m. Mariota states case to BucsBy RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESINDIANAPOLIS — Marcus Mariota is arguably the best dual-threat quarterback to enter the NFL draft. He has a strong arm, is an accurate passer and can run like a wide receiver. His talent and intangibles scream superstar. What he has to learn to do is speak up, starting in the huddle. At Oregon, Mariota never called a play. The Ducks signaled plays in from the sideline while players stood at the line. Each night, Mariota verbalizes an NFL play sheet he got from Browns quarterbacks coach Kevin O’Connell. “He’s told me to just read the play calls out loud,” Mariota said. “That’s something little but as this process goes, it’s going to help me with whatever team that I get to in just speaking in the huddle and articulating the plays.” On Thursday at the NFL scoring combine, Mariota had no trouble voicing his belief that he is the best quarterback in the draft and deserves to go No. 1 to the Bucs. “As a competitor, any person will tell you he’s the best. I truly believe that in myself,” Mariota said. “We’ll see whatever decision is made, but I’ve got to go in with that mentality. “Any player will stand in front of you and tell you that they’re condent in their abilities. I’m no different. I feel what I’ve been able to do at the University of Oregon, what I’ve learned, has prepared me for this level.” The Bucs are consider ing Mariota and Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston for the top spot.

The Earnhardt and Johnson wins were anticlimactic, with the drama saved for Danica Patrick’s desperate bid to make Sunday’s opening race.

She restarted 18th with two laps to go and was pushed all the way around Daytona International Speedway by teammate Kurt Busch to nish 10th.

GOLF ROUNDUP BLASTS FROM THE PASTLOS ANGELES — Retief Goosen and Vijay Singh, among the top ve players in the world a decade ago, were part of a six-way tie for the lead in the Northern Trust Open in what amounted to “throwback Thursday” at Riviera. The 51-year-old Singh, who plays the occasional Champions Tour event, picked up four birdies on the back nine for a 5-under 66, his lowest opening round on the PGA Tour since the 2012 McGladrey Classic. The threetime major champion and former world No. 1 has not won since 2008. Goosen, a two-time U.S. Open champion who turned 47 this month, was slowed by a pair of sloppy bogeys early on the back nine until he made a pair of late birdies to join Singh at 66. Goosen hasn’t won since 2009. They played in the same group with 28-year-old Brian Harman, who shot a 78. “It was nice to see the two old boys play pretty good,” Goosen said. Pebble Beach runner-up Nick Watney, competing for the fth straight week, kept up his form with an eagle on the opening hole on his way to a 66. James Hahn, Daniel Summerhays and Derek Fathauer joined them in the lead as an overcast morning turned into mild sunshine, typical of the weather on this West Coast Swing. Fathauer was the only player at 66 who played in the afternoon, when the already difcult greens had a bit more bounce with approach shots and bump on the putts. Such is Riviera that on a perfect day for scoring — mild weather, no wind — the average score was just under 73. No one managed better than 66, while three players failed to break 80. Lee leads early in Australia: In Melbourne, Australia, South Korea’s Ilhee Lee shot a 5-under 68 in calm morning conditions at Royal Melbourne to take a one-stroke lead in the Women’s Australian Open.

An incident between the two in Wednesday’s practice sent Patrick to her backup car, and she felt Hamlin had spun her Thursday night. They had a heated argument, with Hamlin at times appearing to try to calm Patrick, and he nally seemed exasper ated when he covered his face with his hands. “He cut across my rear bumper and pulls the back end around,” Patrick said. “I get being close. But he’s been going to my left rear and it just gets it light. I don’t want to have these issues, but if we’re going to have these issues then we’re going to have to deal with them. We can’t be putting ourselves out of our race at someone else’s expense and nothing’s happened to him.” Tony Stewart, her car co-owner, entered the fray and seemed to shout at Hamlin. “Tony came down and said, ‘You need to watch the replay,’ which is good to hear. My boss obviously was sitting on the pit box and saw it,” she said. “We’re going to have to gure it out because this isn’t going to end well.” Hamlin was adamant that Patrick’s car was too loose, he didn’t touch her and the spin was an aerodynamic issue. “I try to treat everyone as equal,” Hamlin said. “If you’re in this Cup series, you deserved your way here and you can handle a lot of situations. I just got close to her and her car got loose again. I just tried to explain that, ‘Danica, oh, it’s you, I’ve got to stay away two feet because your car is loose?’ “We’re trying to move forward. What are we racing for? Eighth in a twin race? It’s not much, but I guess I just have to give more room because once I get close enough to her, her car just gets out of control.” When Hamlin and Patrick were nally separated, Busch was waiting to congratulate her. Meanwhile, Hendrick Motorsports has dominated qualifying and will start 1-2-3 in “The Great American Race.” Jeff Gordon and Johnson swept the front row in the rst round of qualifying. Then Earnhardt, the defending Daytona 500 winner, won the rst duel to take the third starting spot. “We’ve had a great car all week,” Earnhardt said. “I’m so glad to get through the duel in one piece because I know how good this car is. We’re going to have a fun day on Sunday.” Gordon, the four-time NASCAR champion, nished second in the duel and was followed by Joey Logano, Stewart and Clint Bowyer. Johnson easily won the second duel, leading Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards and Greg Bife across the nish line.DUELFROM PAGE 1 | AUTO RACING SCOREBOARDNASCAR Sprint CupBUDWEISER DUEL 1 At Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach Lap length 2.5 miles (Start position in parentheses) 1.

Tomas Fleischmann and Steven Kampfer scored in regulation for the Panthers (26-19-12), who won their second game in a row to start a ve-game trip. Brendan Gallagher scored both of Montreal’s goals in the second period. The Canadiens (37-16-5) outshot the Panthers 39-21 and blew a 2-0 lead. Gallagher was in his usual spot, in front of the opponent’s goal, when he sent Max Pacioretty’s rebound past Roberto Luongo 2:31 into the second. It was his 100th career point. Gallagher pounced on a loose puck at 10:32, but the Panthers quickly responded. They got two chances from the slot and Fleischmann buried the second at 11:54 with Bolland parked in front of Carey Price.

Goran Dragic, Michael Carter-Williams, Reggie Jackson and Brandon Knight all were dealt Thursday in the nal hours that trades were allowed, as a number of teams handed their keys to different drivers. Kevin Garnett also has a new address — his original NBA one. The Timberwolves brought him back to Minnesota by sending Thaddeus Young to Brooklyn. There were so many players on the move in deals agreed to shortly before the 3 p.m. EST deadline that most of the transactions were still awaiting NBA approval hours later. Dragic and Jackson were two players to watch on deadline day, because neither was expected to remain with his team after this season. Both their teams opted to move them rather than risk losing them for nothing. Phoenix sent Dragic to Miami, getting two rst-round picks and a package of players for the Slovenian, a third-team All-NBA selection last season. The Suns lled his spot by acquiring Knight from Milwaukee in a three-team deal with Philadelphia, which sent Carter-Williams to the Bucks. “I did feel it was time to nd a better t,” Dragic wrote on Twitter, adding “NOW it’s #heatnation time and I’m excited to bring the Dragon’s re to Miami!!” Zoran Dragic, Goran’s brother, also went from Phoenix to Miami. Jackson, who began the season replacing an injured Russell Westbrook, now will step in for the sidelined Brandon Jennings. The Oklahoma City Thunder sent Jackson to Detroit in a three-way trade that included Utah. Even backup point guards seemed in demand, with players such as Isaiah Thomas (Boston), Ramon Sessions (Washington), Andre Miller (Sacramento), DJ Augustin (Oklahoma City), Norris Cole (New Orleans) and Pablo Prigioni (Houston) getting new homes. Some big guys got in on the little guys’ fun, with Enes Kanter getting his wish to leave Utah when he ended up in Oklahoma City as Kendrick Perkins’ replacement. Thunder 104, Mavericks 89: In Oklahoma City, Russell Westbrook had 34 points and 10 assists to help Oklahoma City defeat Dallas. Serge Ibaka had 21 points and a career-high 22 rebounds and reserve guard Anthony Morrow added 16 points for the Thunder, who won for the sixth time in seven games. They moved into a tie with Phoenix for eighth place in the Western Conference. The Thunder rolled, despite getting just 12 points from Kevin Durant.Dragic goes to Miami on busy deadline day NBA ROUNDUP Point guards in demand; Garnett goes back to WolvesBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSAP PHOTOThe Miami Heat acquired Goran Dragic (1) on Thursday at the NBA trade deadline for two rst-round draft picks and other considerations.

Notre Dame 14, Incarnate Word 1 Notre Dame (Ohio) at Carson-Newman, ccd. | SCOREBOARD INDIANAPOLIS — Cleveland general manager Ray Farmer said he alone is responsible for sending text messages to the sideline last season in violation of NFL rules. Farmer told reporters Thursday in Indianapolis that nobody asked him to contact the coaches and that he was “owning up to the mistake.” Farmer said he will accept whatever punishment the NFL sets but that it is in the league’s hands and appreciates the support he’s gotten from team owner Jimmy Haslam. Elway says Broncos want Manning back: In Indianapolis, asked who he thinks Denver’s quarterback will be next season, John Elway left no doubt: Peyton Manning. Asked about how Manning’s contract might read if he does return, Elway was less clear: “The bottom line is, I don’t like to get into anyone’s contract.” Colts talked to league about balls before AFC title game: In Indianapolis, Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said Indianapolis notified NFL officials about New England’s footballs before the AFC championship game — and after Baltimore reportedly had issues with the Patriots’ kicking balls in a divisional-round game one week earlier. Grigson did not elaborate or say how the Colts were tipped off. Saint sued by woman in home disturbance: In Gretna, La., a woman allegedly beaten by New Orleans Saints linebacker Junior Galette in early January has filed a civil lawsuit accusing the NFL player of subjecting her to false imprisonment, human trafficking, rape and other types of physical and mental abuse. Galette’s lawyer said the lawsuit was filed only after Galette rejected a $2 million “shakedown” and that Galette will be cleared.Browns’ GM owns up to texts NFL NOTEBOOK BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS | QUICK HITSHALEP ADVANCES TO SEMIFINAL AGAINST WOZNIACKI IN DUBAIDUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Top-seeded Simona Halep needed ve match points before nally defeating sixth-seeded Ekaterina Makarova 6-3, 1-6, 7-5 in the quarternals at the Dubai Tennis Championships on Thursday. Halep’s victory at Dubai Tennis Stadium set up a seminal match against third-seeded Caroline Wozniacki, a former Dubai champion in 2011. Wozniacki, who has been nursing a cold all week, beat 10th-seeded Flavia Pennetta of Italy 7-5, 6-0, winning the last eight games. For the second consecutive week, Karolina Pliskova advanced to the seminals of a tournament by beating Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic. Pliskova recovered from a set and a service break down to win 3-6, 7-6 (5), 6-1. Donald Young reached his third quarterfinal in four ATP events this year with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Alejandro Gonzalez of Colombia at the Delray Beach Open. The 25-year-old American, who was the No. 1-ranked junior in the world in 2005 but has struggled in the professional ranks, has never before made three quarterfinals in a season. Top-seeded Milos Raonic was knocked out of the Open 13 in Marseille, France, in his first match after a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (3) second-round loss to Simone Bolelli, who recorded the biggest win of his career. Raonic, who had a first-round bye, hit 21 aces to Bolelli’s seven but converted just one of eight break point opportunities. Top-seeded Sara Errani reached the quarterfinals of the Rio Open in Rio de Janeiro, defeating Lourdes Dominguez Lino 6-0, 7-5. No. 6 Anna Schmiedlova also made the final eight on clay with a victory over Paula Ormaechea 6-0, 6-2.JUDICIARYState troopers discuss evidence in Aaron Hernandez trial: In Fall River, Mass., three state troopers testified about evidence they collected in the murder trial of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, including a digital scale with a dish that included a residue of marijuana. Hernandez is charged in the June 2013 death of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee. Trooper Zachary Johnson testified about going to Lloyd’s home the evening his body was found and alerting his family that he was dead. He also spoke about a safe police found in the closet of Hernandez’s master bedroom. Inside, he said, was the digital scale and dish.SOCCERBalotelli causes fuss, lifts Liverpool: In Liverpool, England, Mario Balotelli took the ball from teammate Jordan Henderson as he was preparing to take an 85th-minute penalty kick, then scored the goal that gave Liverpool a 1-0 win over visiting Besiktas in the first leg of the Europa League’s second round. Liverpool was awarded the penalty kick by Polish referee Szymon Marciniak, who ruled Ramon Motta tripped Jordan Ibe. Henderson, Liverpool’s captain in the absence of injured midfielder Steven Gerrard, was preparing to take the kick when the ball was grabbed by Balotelli, a penalty kick specialist. Henderson momentarily appeared unhappy, as did Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge, but they were soon congratulating Balotelli. The second leg of the total-goals series is next week. Elsewhere in Europe’s second-tier club competition, Everton and American goal keeper Tim Howard rallied for a 4-1 win at Switzerland’s Young Boys as Romelu Lukaku scored a hat trick. Roberto Soldado scored in the sixth minute as Tottenham tied 1-1 at home against visiting Fiorentina, which got a 36th-minute goal from Jose Basanta.BASEBALLAlvarez, Trumbo win arbritration cases: Pedro Alvarez and Mark Trumbo won their salary arbitration cases, and Atlanta pitcher Mike Minor became the 12th player to go to a hearing this year. Alvarez was awarded a $5.75 million salary instead of Pittsburgh’s $5.25 million offer by Robert Herzog, James Oldham and Dan Brent, who heard arguments Wednesday. Clemson is moving its weekend baseball series with Maine out of South Carolina because groundskeepers say the field at Doug Kingsmore Stadium is frozen and unplayable. Clemson officials announced the series will open today with a single game and a double header will be played Saturday at Olmstead Stadium in Augusta, Georgia — home of the minor league Augusta GreenJackets. Wichita State will not appeal an NCAA ruling that it vacate its baseball wins in the 2012 and 2013 seasons, but the school’s former baseball coach said he’s challenging it on his own. national championship. Both are leaders with strong arms and identical in height at 6 feet 334. Mariota added needed weight and hit the skills at 222 pounds Thursday. Off the eld, there are no character issues for Mariota. The question is how quickly he can play. That’s a projection at best. Quarterbacks who have come from those type of college schemes increasingly have struggled in the NFL trying to win from the pocket. Robert Grifn III and Colin Kaepernick burst onto the scene with their one-read-and-run performances. But once the league adjusted, they have struggled. Last year, the Jaguars used the No. 3 pick on Central Florida quar terback Blake Bortles, who played in a similar scheme as Mariota. His development was slow. “We went with a race to maturity. He doesn’t have to come in and have to start,” Jags coach Gus Bradley said. “We’ve got a guy, Chad Henne. But how do we speed this process up? Not just to make us happy, but to truly where this guy is mature enough to be able to handle it? I think because of the way we did it, Blake made progress fast.” Bortles completed 58.9 percent of his passes with 11 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. Mariota said he doesn’t carry a chip on his shoulder because of the doubters but he has a reason for motivation. “I guess you could say it’s a little bit of the motivation but it’s not the reason I’m doing it,” Mariota said. “There’s a purpose why I’m here and why I’m standing in front of you and that’s because I love the game, I want to be a part of it, I want to be a part of a team for a long time.”MARIOTAFROM 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 HERON CREEK.4:, ' &.

She took a pair of thirds at the state meet in 2014 and will be looking for bigger things this time around.Haley BlemLemon BayBlem has gone from a runner who rounded out the Mantas’ 3,200 relay to a perennial contender in the 800 and she medaled in the event at the FHSAA Finals last year. Lemon Bay is loaded in the middle distance events, but Blem stands out from the crowd.Marshall DillonCharlotteHere comes the latest model from the Tarpons’ distance assembly line that produced Tyler Cardillo and Ryan Schnulle. Charlotte co-coach Chris George thinks Dillon can break 4:20 in the mile this season, putting him on the same trajectory as Cardillo and Schnulle.Tajahs JacksonDeSoto CountyJackson burst onto the track scene as a sprinter at the Marcus Freeman Invitational three years ago, but he has done his best as a jumper.

DISTRICT: 2A-11 (Booker, Dunedin, Gibbs, Hardee, Lakewood, Southeast). KEY LOSSES: Ledaja Dennis, KEY RETURNERS: Shaderra Daley, Jr.; Shakeria Nicklow, So.; Sha’terrica Luther, So. OUTLOOK: The Bulldogs will start the year young but with some promise. Coach Nicklow likes freshmen sprinters Hayleigh McCall and Leticia Tenorio. Junior thrower Daley will be aiming to qualify for regionals after nearly doing so last year. Sophomore Sha’terrica Luther made the district finals in two hurdles events in 2014; qualifying for regionals should be her next step. Sophomore Shakeria Nicklow will look to improve in the 200 and 400. COACH: Joe Casale LAST YEAR: Second in district, third in region DISTRICT: 2A-12 (Dunbar, Immokalee, Clewiston, Bishop Verot, Gateway Charter, LaBelle, Oasis) KEY LOSSES: Carlie Peacock, Sydni Ogilvie. KEY RETURNERS: Nicole Mis, Sr.; Ocie Flowers, Jr.; Marisabel Rodriguez, Sr.; Michelle Fetzer, Jr.; Jackie LaMarr, Jr.; Hope Pfannkuck, Sr.; Melissa Robinson, Sr..; Nikki Lenard, Sr.; Haley Blem, Sr.; Abby Weinfeld, Jr.; Kelsi Ogilvie, So. OUTLOOK: The Mantas could break through for a district title. The distance and middle distance corps includes Blem, Mis and Weinfeld. Lenard qualified for states in the hurdles last season. Another state qualifier, Flowers (high jump), hopes to return in March from a stress fracture (foot). Melissa Robinson is one to watch in the sprints. COACH: Phu Nguyen LAST YEAR: Third in district, 15th in region DISTRICT: 4A-8 (East Lake, Sarasota-Riverview, Manatee, St. Petersburg, Palm Harbor University, Countryside, Pinellas Park, Seminole). KEY LOSSES: Kendra Pinter, Judley Laroche, KEY RETURNERS: Kim Richards, Sr.; Armani Seale, So.; Jasmine Banks, Sr.; Jamie Weisberger, Sr.; Brooke Harris, Sr.; Sydney Guenther, Sr.; Nicole Raczka, Jr.; Lindsay Boethig, So. OUTLOOK: Start with distance standouts Guenther, Weisberger and the Boethig sisters (Lindsay and Kaley), a group that should be well-rep resented at regionals and state. Seale was a revelation in the sprints and jumps last season, so she’ll be expected to build on that. Banks could earn North Port a lot of points with her versatility in the high jump, triple jump and hurdles. COACH: Bethany Heslam LAST YEAR: Sixth in district, 11th in region, DISTRICT: 3A-11 (Fort Myers, Riverdale, Ida Baker, Estero, Charlotte, Cape Coral, Mariner, Lehigh, South Fort Myers, Island Coast, Cypress Lake, North Port Myers) KEY LOSSES: Milany Quiles, Peyton Jean-Jacques. KEY RETURNERS: Michelle Atherley, Brittany McGivern. OUTLOOK: Behind Atherley in the Pirates’ lineup is a lot of depth, but also a lot of youth. Atherley is an elite hurdler who should be contend for a state title. But the 20 new additions could play a part. The distance corps of McGivern, Sabrina Fultz, Christine Bodine and Delaney Gerofsky have room to grow. Sophomore Gerda Guerrier and freshman Di Tiki Tyler are expected to lead the sprinters. COACH: Brenda Clark LAST YEAR: Fourth in district DISTRICT: 3A-10 (Boca Ciega, Braden River, Clearwater, Dixie Hollins, Lakewood Ranch, Largo, Northeast, Osceola, Palmetto, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs) KEY LOSS: Liz Leone KEY RETURNERS: Theresa Kelly, Sr.; Beau Doyle, Sr.; Koree Ream, Sr.; Sierra Totten, Jr.; Tanner Gauthier, So. OUTLOOK: Kelly, who was one of two Venice girls track athletes to make states last year, is the 10th-ranked pole vaulter in the state and should make another run to the finals. Gauthier is a sophomore and will add throwing to her high jump and triple jump duties. Beau Doyle, fresh off her appearance in the state weightlifting finals, leads the long jump and sprinting efforts. COACHES: Jerry Voss and Chris George LAST YEAR: Third in district, eighth in region DISTRICT: 3A-11 (Fort Myers, Riverdale, Ida Baker, Estero, Port Charlotte, Cape Coral, Mariner, Lehigh, South Fort Myers, Island Coast, Cypress Lake, North Port Myers) KEY LOSSES: Julia Fowlie, Jenny D’Alessandro, Assita Toure, Heidi Ruth, Mindy Vitale. KEY RETURNERS: Oceana Dwyer, Jaliyah Underwood, Michaela Flowers. OUTLOOK: The Tarpons must discover new sources for points with Fowlie and D’Alessandro gone. Regional qualifier Oceana Dwyer returns in the triple jump and middle sprints. Sophomore sprinters Underwood and Dana Donovan hold promise. But this group enters the season more untested than in recent seasons. COACHES: Jerry Voss and Chris George LAST YEAR: Second in district, sixth in region DISTRICT: 3A-11 (Fort Myers, Riverdale, Ida Baker, Estero, Port Charlotte, Cape Coral, Mariner, Lehigh, South Fort Myers, Island Coast, Cypress Lake, North Port Myers) KEY LOSSES: Isaiah Noel, Kei’onte Lattimore, Gavin Leyrer, Ryan Uebelacker, Kenneth Richter. KEY RETURNERS: Alex Flores, Sr.; Marshall Dillon, Jr.; Devin Quinn, Sr.; Maleek Williams, So.; Chauncey Graham, Sr. OUTLOOK: For returning state qualifiers Quinn (sprints) and Dillon (middle distance), anything short of a state medal is probably a disappointment. Maleek Williams could challenge Quinn in the sprints. John Wentworth could be one to watch in 1,600 and 3,200 meters after a strong cross country season. COACH : Darrell Nicklow. LAST YEAR: Fourth in district. DISTRICT: 2A-11 (Booker, Dunedin, Gibbs, Hardee, Lakewood, Southeast). KEY LOSSES: Terrell Gordon, Steven Ochoa. KEY RETURNERS: Tony Lee, Jr.; Tajahs Jackson, Sr.; Alfredrick Tyson, Sr.; Caleb Blackwood, So.; Qua Fudge, Jr.; Keshawn Smith, Jr.; Lisandro Cisneros, Jr. OUTLOOK: Tajahs Jackson is the headliner – he qualified for the FHSAA Finals in three events and took fourth in the triple jump. Keshawn Smith, Alfredrick Tyson and Dewayne Hearns are worth watching in the short distances. Junior Lisandro Cisneros qualified for regionals in the 1,600 and 3,200 meters, and he will be expected to give DeSoto County a presence in the long events. Bulldogs coach Darrell Nicklow is expecting good things from Qua Fudge in the high jump. COACH : Joe Casale LAST YEAR: Sixth in district, 19th in region DISTRICT: 2A-12 (Dunbar, Immokalee, Clewiston, Bishop Verot, Gateway Charter, LaBelle, Oasis) KEY LOSSES: Christopher DeLeon, Zach Mallon, Nick Tieu, Kevin Plummer. KEY RETURNERS: Matt Toor, Sr.; Vinny Messina, Sr; Andrew Harris, Sr; Harry Sheppard, Sr.; Miles Rittenhouse, Jr. OUTLOOK: The Manta Rays are solid with senior throwers Vinny Messina, Matt Toor and Stephen Swierkosz. Messina is a reigning district champion in the shot put. Toor took second in the discus. Miles Rittenhouse will be expected to lead the Mantas in the distance events. Elsewhere, Lemon Bay is going to have to find athletes that can compete on the track. COACH : Tony Miller LAST YEAR: Second in district, regional champions DISTRICT: 4A-8 (East Lake, Sarasota-Riverview, Manatee, St. Petersburg, Palm Harbor University, Countryside, Pinellas Park, Seminole). KEY LOSSES: Evenson Marcial, Gevon Rodney, Trequan Moreland, Leonard Faison, Sly Augustyn. KEY RETURNERS: Will Glesge, Sr.; Ibsen Marcial, Sr.; Matthew Detert, Sr.; Jonathan Osinga, Sr.; Billy Castrovince, Sr.; Michael Barnes, Sr. OUTLOOK: Can the Bobcats win a third straight regional title? State qualifers Glesge (thrower), Marcial (jumper) and Osinga (sprinter) return, but the Bobcats have less depth and they won the region by only 1 points. But this team has plenty left to make another run. Glesge and Marcial should be looking for top-five finishes at state. COACH : Tommy Henry LAST YEAR: Fifth in district, 21st in region DISTRICT: 3A-11 (Fort Myers, Riverdale, Ida Baker, Estero, Charlotte, Cape Coral, Mariner, Lehigh, South Fort Myers, Island Coast, Cypress Lake, North Port Myers) KEY LOSSES: Anthony Deijuste, Nick Dunakey KEY RETURNERS: Tyler Fisher, Sr.; Anthony Stephens, Sr.; Martin Luther, Sr.; Jevaun Prendergast, Sr.; Serge JeanJacques, Sr., Madison Eckhoff, So., Michael Wessels OUTLOOK: Fisher is a favorite to get to the FHSAA Finals in the 3,200 meters (and a possibility in the 1,600). Stephens took second at districts in the long jump and triple jump. Eckhoff (sprints) opens the season nursing injuries. Jean-Jacques is the Pirates’ top hurdles hope after the graduation of Dejuiste. COACH : Jason Potter LAST YEAR: Fourth in district DISTRICT: 3A-10 — Boca Ciega, Braden River, Clearwater, Dixie Hollins, Lakewood Ranch, Largo, Northeast, Osceola, Palmetto, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs KEY LOSSES: Marcus Laurin, Shane Burns, John Cokley, Jovan Edumnds KEY RETURNERS: Noah Montgomery, Sr.; Dylan Stover, Sr. Ty Gauthier, Sr.; Ben Chisholm, Sr. OUTLOOK: Despite losing four of the five state qualifiers from last y ear, Potter says the school 4x400-meter record could be in danger again. Montgomery is the only returnee from last year’s state 1,600-relay qualifier and Chisholm, a regional qualifier in the 100 last year, is faster this season. Alex Hoag and Jarrod Hewitt are first-time shot and discus competitors. ONLINEDid you miss a preview package for the spring season?

He won the 100, but strained his hamstring while doing so. It was an injury that plagued him for the rest of the season, keeping the muscle tightly wrapped for competition. Even though Quinn wasn’t 100 percent, he still qualied for the FHSAA Finals, nishing eighth in the 100 and ninth in the 200. It wasn’t an easy process. The hamstring kept him from almost any work the rest of the season. By then, his stamina was almost totally gone. “All I could do was a couple of light weightlifting exercises to try to strengthen it,” Quinn said. “Just really, really light weight. It was really difcult.” Even though Quinn reached the podium, Voss knew his sprinter wasn’t healthy. “He wasn’t himself through the end,” Voss said. “I think he just gritted himself through the state meet. It was just sheer determination he was able to go through districts and regions last year.” Now, Quinn is eager to start over. What could he do with a healthy season? He’d love to nd out; so would Voss. Voss said Quinn had an impressive offseason, doing workouts the Charlotte co-coach prescribed for him at the start of the summer. “By the end of the rst week of summer, I couldn’t feel my hamstring (injury) at all,” Quinn said. “I just basically weightlifted all summer and kept things simple. I kept my form up.” But Quinn and Voss will take it careful, especially in the early part of the season when the temperatures are cooler. “You’ve got to prepare the body – you do beat the body up,” Voss said. “But he’s done all the prerequisite stuff before the season to prepare him for a good senior year.”Contact Rob Shore at shore@ or 941-206-1174QUINNFROM PAGE 1SUN PHOTO BY KATHERINE GODINACharlotte’s Devin Quinn and Port Charlotte’s Jacques Jean-Louis race during the District 3A-11 meet last year.

Page 6 SP The Sun /Friday, February 20, 2015 Matt Eder in the second, and Eder eventually came around to score. But Joyce induced Christian Roberts to foul out to rst baseman Jacob Orr to escape further damage. At one juncture, he retired six batters in a row before Hunter Scimeca reached rst on an error and came around to score on a series of throwing errors. By then, though, the game was well in hand. The Mustangs strung together a ve-hit, ninerun rst that included several stolen bases and a litany of errors by the Crusaders. The big inning had one downside. Leadoff hitter Alex Parker injured his left ankle sliding into second on a steal attempt following his single. He had to be carried off the eld by teammates. Coach Randy Jackson later said the injury was minor and Parker would be back in the lineup soon. Beswick delivered the big blow in the rst, a two-run single that made it 4-1 and sent the Mustangs on their way. The inning was pretty much a microcosm of the game: Cape Christian making mistakes and Community Christian taking advantage. “They gave us a lot of runs,” Jackson said. “We hit fair – not outstanding – but they gave us a lot of runs. That’s not going to happen every game.” Before the game, Jackson said all he was looking for was a solid effort. “I got what I wanted,” he said afterward. “They hustled like I asked them to.”COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN 25, CAPE CHRISTIAN 3Cape Christian 110 1 — 3 3 Community Christian 959 2 — 25 11 W: Joyce (1-0).

Pirates earn 1st victoryBy GARY BROWNSUN CORRESPONDENT NORTH PORT — With the weather prompting both teams to agree to play pro sets instead of traditional ones, Port Charlotte High School girls tennis match against North Port was already going to be shorter than usual. Then the Pirates made short work of the Bobcats, gaining their rst win, 7-0. “We played some tough teams in our rst two matches (Charlotte and Lemon Bay), and we’ve gotten better since,” Pirates coach Lisa Branno said about her 1-2 team. Freshman Corrine Bresky led Thursday’s charge with an 8-0 victory at No. 2 singles to improve to 3-0. Bresky teamed with Jasmine Hajding to win the No. 2 doubles match. Bresky hopes to use her strong start as a springboard this season, since she has enough experience now to know what she is doing. “I’ve played for three years, mostly in junior division tournaments,” she said. Bresky is the lone freshman in the Pirates’ starting ladder. Viktoryia Zhuleva and Cooper Howarth played the closest matches for North Port. Zhuleva lost 9-7 and Howarth fell 8-5. “Cooper (Howarth) at our No. 5 singles was playing her rst-ever singles match and did a good job,” North Port coach Karyn Strauss said. “Our four doubles players were new, too, so we’ll get better.”PORT CHARLOTTE 7, NORTH PORT 0At North Port HS.

HE’S HERE: LF Matt Joyce, LHP Andrew Heaney, C Drew Butera, LF Daniel Robertson, RHP Nick Tropeano, SS Roberto Baldoquin, LHP Cesar Ramos. HE’S OUTTA HERE: 2B Howie Kendrick, 2B Gordon Beckham, C Hank Conger, RF Brennan Boesch, RHP Yoslan Herrera, 3B John McDonald. GOING CAMPIN’: Before the Angels can atone for last October’s postseason flop, they’ll have to figure out how to emulate last summer’s outstanding regular season. Two key contributors will start spring training slowly while recovering from injuries, but right-hander Garrett Richards and outfielder Josh Hamilton hope to be ready around opening day. Most of last season’s roster returns alongside cornerstones Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, but the Angels have a glaring hole at second base with the trade of mainstay Howie Kendrick for tantalizing pitching prospect Heaney, who will compete for a rotation spot. But the spotlight will be firmly on Trout as he attempts to follow up his first MVP season with even bigger achievements — most importantly in October.Oakland AthleticsMANAGER: Bob Melvin (fifth season). 2014: 88-74, second place, lost to Royals in wild-card playoff. TRAINING TOWN: Mesa, Arizona. PARK: Hohokam Stadium. FIRST WORKOUT: Today/Wednesday. HE’S HERE: RHP INF Ben Zobrist, 3B Brett Lawrie, RHP Tyler Clippard, 1B Billy Butler, INF Marcus Semien, RHP Jesse Hahn, RHP Chris Bassitt, 1B Ike Davis, LHP Sean Nolin, RHP, Kendall Graveman, C Josh Fegley, LHP Eury De La Rosa.

GOING CAMPIN’: It was another busy offseason in Oakland after the team’s third straight postseason berth ended in a wild-card playoff loss to Kansas City. Key players like Donaldson, Samrdzija, Norris and Moss were traded while Lester, Lowrie and Gregerson left as free agents. Oakland has dealt away five of its seven All-Stars from last year. In all, general manager Billy Beane made nine trades this offseason involving 27 players — and infielder Yunel Escobar twice — in an attempt to overhaul the team on the fly. With these deals, a staggering 28 of the 40 players on Oakland’s major league roster were acquired by trades. The most important additions are Zobrist and Clippard. Zobrist will solidify second base and provide a middle-of-the-lineup hitter while Clippard can close until Sean Doolittle recovers from a shoulder injury. When Doolittle returns, he and Clippard will form a potent left-right tandem at the end of games. Newcomers Hahn, Bassitt, Nolin and Graveman will compete in spring to fill out the rotation.Seattle MarinersMANAGER: Lloyd McClendon (second season). 2014: 87-75, third place. TRAINING TOWN: Peoria, Arizona. PARK: Peoria Sports Complex. FIRST WORKOUT: Saturday/ Wednesday. HE’S HERE: LHP J.A. Happ, C John Baker, DH Nelson Cruz, OF Justin Ruggiano, OF Seth Smith. HE’S OUTTA HERE: OF Michael Saunders, DH Kendrys Morales, OF Corey Hart, RHP Chris Young, 1B Justin Smoak, RHP Brandon Maurer, OF Chris Denorfia. GOING CAMPIN’: Welcome to the new world of high expectations for the Mariners. A year after acquiring Robinson Cano and finishing one-game out of the playoffs, the Mariners signed third baseman Kyle Seager to a seven-year extension, nabbed major league home run champ Cruz in free agency and added a suitable pair of outfielders in Justin Ruggiano and Seth Smith. Suddenly the Mariners are being viewed as one of the favorites, not just in their division but the entire American League. Most of Seattle’s roster is set headed into spring, with two notable exceptions: shortstop and one spot in the starting rotation. Chris Taylor and Brad Miller are vying for the starting job at shortstop. Taylor is the better glove, Miller has more potential at the plate. Most of Seattle’s starting rotation is set with Felix Hernandez, Hisashi Iwakuma, James Paxton and Happ. The fifth spot will likely come down to Taijuan Walker, Roenis Elias and Erasmo Ramirez unless another unknown pops up as Elias did last year during spring training.Houston AstrosMANAGER: A.J. Hinch (first season). 2014: 70-92, (fourth place). TRAINING TOWN: Kissimmee. PARK: Osceola County Stadium. FIRST WORKOUT: Saturday/ Wednesday. HE’S HERE: Manager A.J. Hinch, SS Jed Lowrie, C-OF Evan Gattis, OF Colby Rasmus, C Hank Conger, RHP Dan Straily, RHP Luke Gregerson, RHP Pat Neshek, 3B Luis Valbuena. HE’S OUTTA HERE: Manager Bo Porter, OF Dexter Fowler, C Carlos Corporan, RHP Michael Foltynewicz. GOING CAMPIN’: The Houston Astros look to take another step toward contention this season after making a 19-game improvement last year to end a stretch of three straight 100-loss seasons. They have yet another new manager — their fourth full-time skipper since 2009 — in Hinch and are finally putting some money into the team after years of playing stripped down following trades to restock the once-barren farm system. They acquired Gattis and signed Rasmus to add more power to a lineup which ranked fourth in the majors with 163 homers in 2014 led by Chris Carter’s 37. Houston also addressed its bullpen issues by signing Gregerson and Neshek, a pair of relievers who both had sub-2.15 ERAs last season. They didn’t make any improvements to a rotation led by veteran Scott Feldman, which got a boost last season by the development of Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh. Two players to watch will be right fielder George Springer and first baseman Jon Singleton. Both were rookies last season and Springer was great, with 20 homers and 51 RBIs in 78 games before he was injured. But Singleton failed to show the power he displayed throughout the minors and hit just .168 in 95 games.Texas RangersMANAGER: Jeff Banister (first season). 2014: 67-95, last place. TRAINING TOWN: Surprise, Arizona. PARK: Surprise Stadium. FIRST WORKOUT: Saturday/Thursday. HE’S HERE: Banister, LHP Ross Detwiler, RHP Kyuji Fujikawa, RHP Yovani Gallardo, RHP Anthony Ranaudo, C Carlos Corporan, INF Kyle Blanks, OF Ryan Ludwick, OF Delino DeShields, OF Nate Schierholtz. HE’S OUTTA HERE: Manager Ron Washington, OF Alex Rios, OF Daniel Robertson, C J.P. Arencibia, LHP Scott Baker, RHP Robbie Ross Jr., INF Luis Sardinas, RHP Alexi Ogando, LHP Neal Cotts. GOING CAMPIN’: After its most losses since 1985, Texas goes to camp with a new manager, a few new pitchers and hopes that the big-money additions for last season (slugger Prince Fielder and Shin-Soo Choo) stay healthy this year. Yu Darvish and lefty Derek Holland are back at the top of the rota tion after missing significant portions last season with injuries. If all those key pieces come back strong, maybe last year will indeed prove to be the anomaly that many Rangers officials believe it was after the success of the previous four seasons (consecutive World Series appearances, an AL wild-card game, and a 163rd-game tiebreaker loss). General manager Jon Daniels pulled off a big deal last month when long-coveted Gallardo was acquired in a trade from Milwaukee, and there are other rotation options with Detwiler (free agent) and Ranaudo (trade with Boston). World Series closer Neftali Feliz is back in that role after an ill-fated attempt at being a starter and Tommy John surgery.

The match was closer than the score indicated: Two singles matches went to a third set. At No. 2 singles, Port Charlotte’s Parker Murno, who lost a third-set tiebreak in his previous match, rallied from a set down to defeat Bryce Starr by keeping in play several balls that appeared to be winners for Starr in the third set. “It was about keeping my head in the game and not making as many errors and making sure I stayed in the point and not let them take advantage of my errors,” Murno said. “Some of those points were thanks to the wind. It was real tough to handle today.” At No. 4 singles, North Port’s Alan Rizk won the rst set, but needed to overcome ve match points in the third-set tiebreak to beat Ethan Katz 6-4, 5-7, 15-13. “We had great rallies and hit the ball real well. It was determination that made me win that match,” Rizk said. “Coach told me to play my game and I did, I fought through it and I won.” “Alan was denitely a closer today; he gave it his all,” North Port coach Gary Botelho said. The outcome came down to doubles, in which both Port Charlotte teams cruised in pro sets. Port Charlotte (1-1) prepared for the 20 mph winds by using both sides of the net during the prematch warm-up session. “It was brutal today, but the boys played well and they gured out what they needed to do,” Port Charlotte coach Scott Toney said. “The boys grinded out a nice win. Ethan’s match didn’t go his way, but he played great in doubles, which we needed.” North Port (2-3) earned its other point from Phillip Tran at No. 1 singles.

Joe Spooner led suit in U.S. District Court asking federal marshals to “arrest” the foiling 45-foot catamaran that the two-time America’s Cup champion is testing on San Francisco Bay and keeps at Pier 80. Spooner said in his ling that his contract for $25,000 a month was terminated in January without cause. He was a grinder with Oracle Team USA during its America’s Cup victories in 2010 and 2013. Oracle Team USA declined comment. Spooner’s attorney, Patricia Barlow of San Francisco, said more lings are due Friday morning. Spooner’s total claim is for $750,000. According to the lawsuit, Spooner is taking the action now because Oracle is expected to move the boat in the spring to Bermuda, which will host the America’s Cup in 2017. Bermuda also will host a stop on the America’s Cup World Series later this year. The 45-foot catamaran Spooner is asking to have conscated was built to foil, or ride up on hydrofoils once it reaches a certain speed.

Serving Punta Gorda and Burnt Store A section of the SUN 16 pages The Punta Gorda Rotary annually selects a recipient for its prestigious Service Above Self Award, and it will honor this year’s winner at a March 5 testimonial dinner at the Isles Yacht Club. The award itself is peculiar to the local club, and there are only two criteria — living here a sub stantial length of time and exemplary service to the community. Past winners represent a who’s who of the city, and many — like Vernon Peeples, Rufus Lazell, Dr. Bob Andrews, Garnette Scholl, Bernice Russell and Leo Wotitzky — are what’s known around here as one-name people. You only have to utter their rst name, and the person you are talking to, espe cially someone who’s lived here for a while, knows of whom you speak. This year, the recipient’s rst name is Wally, and you’ve been hiding under a rock if you aren’t aware Keller has to be his last name. He’s the retired Charlotte High School athletic director who’s largely responsible for the magnicent athletic complex there, the school’s history of rst-class sports teams and the scholarships hundreds of student-athletes have received to attend college.

While sitting ringside at the 139th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City, I can write with total condence that this is exactly what my new husband, Lee Bacon, and I did this weekend. In a private ceremony at my Punta Gorda Isles home on Feb. 13, we exchanged vows in front of select few close family and friends. Lee’s father, William, served as best man, and my best friend, Jina Ker, stood next to me as my maid of honor. The ceremony was followed by an intimate dinner at Italia at River City Grill and after-dinner cocktails at OPUS. Most people found out about our nuptials through social media, and by that time we were on a ight to NYC for our honeymoon. Not only did we get to spend Valentine’s Day in the city, but we spent the early part of the week running from show to show to catch a glimpse of the stunning entries in the 2015 Westminster Dog Show. This is of special importance to us — it was Lee’s rst trip and the 23rd anniversary of my rst trip. And even though I’m far away, I have kept Punta Gorda close. I even met Elizabeth Antos, whose parents live in PGI. She brought two Belgian Malinois to the Westminster — Isell’s Ivanovic Aka Zeno and Nasca Vitris Bohemia. They both did well. Congratulations to them, as well as to all who put their best paws forward this week. I can’t think of a more perfect way to celebrate my union with Lee than by doing something we both love — admiring our four-legged friends.Wedding reflects our style Leslee Peth Out and AboutLeslee Peth is the publisher of the Punta Gorda Herald.

Herald Page 6 Friday, February 20, 2015 In November, the Punta Gorda Herald ran a story about a gas station at the corner of West Marion Avenue and Cross Street that Vernon Peeples bought from Tillie Kennedy in 1952 and turned into an insurance agency. At the time, the U.S. 41 bridge hit the Punta Gorda shoreline at Nesbit Street, and the highway proceeded down West Marion to Shreve Street, where it turned south to the Airport Road/Pompano Road vicinity. Kennedy’s service station wasn’t the only one located on or near the main drag. The still-standing buildings housing Charlotte County Flowers on U.S. 41 north and the Celtic Ray pub (the original Ray building on the Nesbit Street side) at the corner of Nesbit and East Marion Avenue also were service stations in those days. A third — Kennedy’s Garage — is missing in action, a victim of Hurricane Charley, and therein lies this tale. It occupied the now-vacant space at the corner of Herald Court and what is now U.S. 41 north, just a few yards from the old 41 byway. It was last owned and oper ated as a gas station/garage by another Kennedy — Clyde Welby Kennedy, who went by his middle name. The current co-owners of that parcel are Bob and Ruth Wessel and Ruth’s brother, Frank Lawson. Ruth was stirred by the story on the Peeples’ building to drag out her folder of old newspapers and other documents that Welby had provided at the time of the sale in 2000 and recount her memories for the benet of people who wonder just what that empty space is all about and why it is still vacant. Two pieces of information she doesn’t have is who owned the business before Welby and whether Welby was kin to Tillie. A query of old-timers who were around back then turned up no one who could remember. (Feel free to email me any information that would add to the discussion). Of Welby, she said, “I don’t know for sure when he bought it. He did say he bought the station from the original owner, so it had only two owners and was a gas station all its life. His wife, Linda, told me Welby actually worked for the original owner starting when he was 14 or 15 years old.” City documents passed on to the Wessels by Welby show that he shut down the gasoline part of the business in 1989 and, at the direction of the state Department of Environmental Regulation, the six tanks, totaling just under 5,000 gallons, were lled with 23 yards of concrete. They couldn’t be removed because of the proliferation of pipes, wires and utilities located above them. The vehicle repair part of the business stayed open until the building attracted the interest of the Wessels. “We used to breakfast across 41 and could see the building,” she said. “I always thought it might make a good coffee shop. We went to Welby and asked him if he would like to sell. He said, ‘Sure, it’s time for me to retire; how did you know?’” Welby didn’t alter the place much over the years and, like his building, wasn’t in tune with the changes in mors during the second half of the 20th century. “It still had the black bathroom with a sign hanging on the door, but it was closed and locked,” Ruth said. “And he wouldn’t talk to me about the purchase. He made Bob come over and negotiate. That just oored me.” The coffee shop never happened because of an environmental issue at the site. Five decades of use as a garage and gas station left the ground contaminated, and the money from a state fund used to clean up such sites was lost due to a budget shortfall before the garage land could be decontaminated. She remembered, “The state did come in during the early 1990s and put in seven test wells. You can still see the caps on the property. They said you can build on it, but you have to leave the testing wells there.” Since a scrape-and-remove soil cleanup would have cost the Wessels $125,000, nothing was done to the property. Ruth said, “We never really had it up for sale. It’s been out there but not formally for sale because of the cloud over it.” Then came Charley. The hurricane turned the imsily constructed building, which wasn’t what anyone would call attractive, into a heap of debris, much to the benet of the soil beneath it. “The state has been testing it all along, and it’s now below the level to get cleaned,” she said. “We just got a letter from the state saying the property is clean, and they’re going to issue a purchase order to have the wells pulled, possibly in the next three months. The hurricane was the savior; with the building down, Florida sun and rain speeded the process. We’re going to sell it now.” Downtown Punta Gorda’s missing gas station PHOTO PROVIDED BY RUTH WESSELThe front of the garage on the east side was a little more attractive and had paintings of old automobiles on it.PHOTO PROVIDED BY RUTH WESSELRuth Wessel described the garage as not very attractive.

Herald Page 8 Friday, February 20, 2015 The Visual Arts Center’s plein air artists presented their annual show and reception on Feb. 5 at the Goff Gallery, 210 Maud St., Punta Gorda. The showcase featured the work of local outdoor artists who paint in and around Charlotte County. More than 100 works of art were submitted to the show.

Sue Paquin PhotojournalistSue Paquin is a freelance photographer. Contact her at Jill McCrory is a die-hard Gator fan. Blue and orange are her colors. She graduated from the University of Florida in Gainesville with a Bachelor of Science degree in advertising in 1997. That was followed by a juris doctorate in 2001 from the Levin College of Law and her Master of Laws and Taxation in 2003. Recently, McCrory was stunned when she received notication from the college that she had been nominated for the 2015 Inaugural Gator100 Award, sponsored by the University of Florida, the Warrington College of Business Administration and the Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation. “I have no idea who sponsored me,” McCrory said. “I think it was probably one of my law professors.” According to the university, “The Gator100 ranks the 100 fastest-growing, Gator-owned or Gator-led businesses each year, recognizing the entrepreneurial spirit in all Gator alumni across our campus.” “You must have been in business for at least ve years and then you were ranked by your company’s growth rate,” she said. “No one knew what the standings were until they were announced at the luncheon on Friday. They had 600 applications from the 1961 to the 2013 graduating classes represented, from those they picked the top 100 fastest-growing companies in the world owned by a former Gator graduate.” On Feb. 5, all the award recipients and the guests were invited to President Bernie Machen’s residence on the campus for a cocktail reception. “Here I was going to the president’s house,” she said. “All the years I attended school here I never dreamed I would be doing that.” On the morning of Feb. 6, McCrory said they attended a morning breakfast held for the four law rms selected in the top 100. “I chatted with all my law professors,” she said. “George Dawson, now dean of the law school, taught me contract law.” After their meal, McCrory and the others had the opportunity to sit and talk and answer questions with the students before they went to the awards luncheon at the Reitz Union Ballroom. McCrory said the countdown went from the 100th recipient to No. 1 based on growth rate. When they had reached 50, and her name had still not been called, she was abbergasted. “When they reached 40, I was on the edge of my seat — I was so nervous,” she said. “Finally, my name was called at 38. I had provided them my last three years of tax returns. They based your ranking on the average of the three. My rm had a 50-per cent growth rate.” McCrory founded her own law rm in 2009. Her creed is to get to know clients on a personal level and make her business more accessible to them. In October, she relocated her ofces to 309 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda. With six lawyers, 10 paraprofessionals and three interns, McCrory said she simply outgrew her space and had to move. With the exception of criminal cases, the rm handles civil suits, wills, trusts, real estate and family law. “I was pretty excited the whole time I was in Gainesville,” she said. “I turned to my husband, Chad, and said, ‘Pinch me.’ I’m still soaking it all in.”Gator grad honored for business growth LEFT: Jill McCrory poses with her Gator100 Award in her oce.

Al Hemingway PGH CorrespondentAl Hemingway is a freelance writer. Contact him at alhemingway3@ PROVIDED HERALD PHOTO BY AL HEMINGWAYFriday, February 20, 2015 Herald Page 9 Wayne Goff is chairman of the Rotary’s selection committee. A member of the school’s athletic hall of fame, he’s been around CHS sports for more than a half-century and had no trouble laying out the reasons the committee chose Keller. Here are a few words from the nominating statement: “He directed with integrity, compassion, encouragement, humility and passion In a two-decade period, every athletic facility on the campus was either built, upgraded or maintained through his efforts at no cost to the taxpayer. Today, the CHS athletic complex ranks in the top ve in the state and is ttingly named the Wallace Keller Athletic Complex as well as the Wallace Keller Gymnasium” “Wally had a passion for encouraging excellence in the classroom and how commitment on the playing eld could lead to a means of higher education “Wally’s life of compassion for students, encouragement to coaches and staff and his service to his community has impacted students, parents, friends, family and co-laborers in such a signicant way” As you will soon see, Keller deserves all the kind words above, with an emphasis on humility. The 80-year-old retired AD recently told Goff as they were looking at names of past winners, “I just hope I’m worthy and can get people there (to the dinner).” As a youth in Morton, Illinois, Keller played four sports — basketball, football, track and baseball — and decided to make the games he loved his life’s work. “I lettered in all four sports,” he said. “That’s all I’ve ever done and known about all my life. My parents really supported me. My dad never missed a game through high school and college.” After bachelor’s and master’s degrees in physical education at Illinois State University, he had a successful 25-year coaching career at two Peoria area high schools. His subsequent move to Florida was a family affair. “My parents retired here, and my brother, Dwayne, followed them and taught, coached and was AD at the high school. He called me one night and said, ‘There’s going to be a basketball opening here. Are you interested?’ All my family was down here but one son, and I was tired of the winters. I had a great job and kind of hated to leave, but family took precedence over everything else.” After a brief and successful interview at then-Principal Ray Jorgenson’s house, Keller accepted the basketball coaching job and took over during the 1980-81 school year. He coached basketball and golf, and three years later assumed the AD role. His impact on the school after saying yes is still being felt today — 10 years after his retirement. “We started redoing all our facilities, the lights, weight room, press box, bleachers,” he said. “The county didn’t give us a dime. We just had a great group of people in the community who wanted to help out and build the best facilities around. We didn’t buy a cinder block or anything.” Keller was a good builder, but he was an even better fundraiser, a critical function at local schools, where a coach’s salary and some bus money are about all an AD can count on. As the head of the Tarpon Booster Club, he and several other members conceived the idea of a boat auction to raise money. The concept was as simple as it was novel. People donated boats, as well as cars and other vehicles, and the club xed them up and auctioned them off. Getting them ready for an auction took a lot of hard work but produced a big payoff — as much as $250,000 in revenue every year that went to sports teams, other school activities and savings/investments for future use. Keller said, “I get a lot of credit, but it was the community. Sometimes, we’d be out there until 4 in the morning. Our auc tion won a national booster club award as the best fundraiser in the United States.” Goff chimed in, saying, “No one has done fundraising like Wally.” Two other pillars of Keller’s approach to his career at CHS bear mentioning. One is the effort he put into the job. While other ADs in Florida were selling doughnuts to raise money (a true story, according to Keller), he worked 19to 20-hour days raising real bucks. He tries to attribute his success to the community, but none can deny he stoked the community’s re by his own example. The other is his love for the students. No AD was as persistent as he was at helping athletes obtain college scholarships. Goff said, “The role Wally played in getting scholarships for kids who needed them has been overlooked. Nobody was better at it than he was.” By any measure, Keller overachieved during his career, and, aside from his sterling personal qualities, it was love and respect for the CHS family that made him do it. He may not enjoy reecting on his own accomplishments, but he is eloquent when talking of the community he served. He said, “We’re unique here. People in this town have been here forever and don’t want to see anything fail. They support everything. That’s what we have over all the other places. Naples, Manatee and Fort Myers have been here just as long, but they are big cities. The schools there don’t have the support we have.” Tickets for the testimonial dinner are $85 and must be purchased in advance from Goff at 941-815-1811. The action starts at 6:30 p.m.; proceeds will be put to use in the community. Email him at for more information. This celebration of Keller’s contributions to the community is an opportunity for all those whose lives he touched to say thank you and show him he not only is worthy of the honor but can also draw a crowd willing to say so.WALLY KELLERFROM PAGE 1 Gordon Bower Punta GordyGordon Bower is a freelance writer and photographer.

Herald Page 10 Friday, February 20, 2015 ‘Writing is a lonely job,” said science ction writer Isaac Asimov. “Even if a writer socializes regularly, when he gets down to the real business of his life, it is he and his type writer or word processor. No one else is or can be involved in the matter.” As Asimov notes, writing can be a lonely profession. But there is no greater feeling of satisfaction to an author when they produce a work that appeals to the public and, more importantly, they are proud of creating. Authors will be gathering for the rst Charlotte Harbor Book Festival from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Punta Gorda History Park, 501 Shreve St., on Feb. 22. The event is free to the public. “This is a great opportunity for the public to purchase a book and actually talk to the authors,” said Paul Holmes, organizer of the event. “It’s not often people get to do that.” Holmes said there are 40 writers cur rently signed up for the event and their works range from local history, Florida history, science ction, children’s books and “way-out ction.” Writers are from all over the county and have led some very interesting lives. “Two guys are from South Carolina, and one female writer is blind,” he said. “It’s amazing how one can overcome their obstacles when they are passionate about something.” About 15 years ago, Holmes said he began writing for fun after he relocated from England to Florida. He wrote articles for periodicals, but he found that to be difcult and not as exciting as the writing he does now. To feel closer to his grandson, who resides in England, Holmes created characters that lived in a fantasy world that also taught life lessons. He wrote about a magical wizard who resided in an enchanted forest. In another tale, medicine had to be delivered to save the wizard’s life. Using the experience from his former job, selling construc tion equipment to contractors, he penned a tale of the wizard getting seriously ill and using the equipment as a means of delivering the life-saving concoction. “These special people helped us stay close as he grew up thousands of miles away,” he said. “I even placed my grandson in photos I created with the characters. Now they hang on his bedroom wall.” Holmes said he hopes the festival is a success and residents and guests can see rsthand some of the local talented writers who reside in Charlotte County. “You can walk the grounds, learn about the history of Punta Gorda, do your Sunday shopping and buy a book on the way out,” he said.Charlotte Harbor Book Festival set for Feb. 22 Al Hemingway PGH CorrespondentAl Hemingway is a freelance writer.

Herald Page 14 Friday, February 20, 2015 By JACQUELINE VAN DER MEULEN CHS JUNIORThe Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports nationwide program came to Charlotte High School three years ago to promote better behavior among students. As the name suggests, the goal of this program is to reward students when they do something good. At CHS, this comes in the form of Tarpon Tickets, which are turned into a rafe drawing for prizes. Team leader Emily Klossner is in charge of the program. Klossner said, “We want to reward the kids who do the right thing all the time, and how we do that is through our Tarpon Tickets. If teachers see students do something good, students get Tarpon Tickets and the Tarpon Tickets are then used to draw winners for prizes.” Richie Woodham, a 10th-grader at Charlotte High, was one of the rst students to be selected for a prize from the pool of Tarpon Tickets. “I got my ticket from Mr. (Keith) Larkins from getting a question right, and I won a hat,” Woodham recalled. Throughout the school year, one student’s Tarpon Ticket is drawn from each grade level. The student whose ticket was drawn appears on Tarpon News Network, the student-produced school news show. The prizes vary from a gift card to Charlotte High merchandise. Anyone interested in supporting the positive behavior program may send donations such as checks, gift cards and goods to Charlotte High School. For details, contact Klossner at emily. or by calling the main number at the school, 941-575-5450.Tarpons maintain safe learning environmentBy JACQUELINE VAN DER MEULEN CHS JUNIORCharlotte High School does its best to provide a safe learning environment for its students. To ensure safety, precautions must be taken. The school has two re drills within the rst few weeks of school, followed by monthly drills throughout the school year. When the re alarm sounds, students are to exit the building in the shortest possible route and wait for the signal before going back inside. “I nd the re drills effective. In case of an actual re, you know where to go to leave the building,” Malik Arscott, a junior, said. Aside from re drills, Charlotte High will occasionally practice the procedure for a code red. “Code red is when there is a crisis; it could mean a lot of things. Anything from something that is happening out in the community to an actual situation on campus — an emergency situation,” Andy Tenney, the assistant principal in charge of facilities and activities, explained. Depending on the type of code red, teachers and administration could be instructed to lock all doors and keep students inside the classroom or escort them to the stadium. While some students may nd practicing code red and re procedures boring, others may enjoy the excuse to miss a few minutes of class. Either way, the drills are essential to keeping Tarpons safe.Popular emojis around campusBy JACQUELINE VAN DER MEULEN CHS JUNIORCharlotte High School students are often found hovering over their phones as they send text messages to their friends. Included in these texts could be a tiny picture called an emoji. Each emoji displays a different image, which depicts a different meaning. They can be used to add character and emotion to otherwise plain text messages. When freshman Gunnar Cheek was asked which emoji was his favorite to use, he couldn’t give a straight answer. “I have to say my favorite emoji is — actually, I have a lot of favorite emojis,” he admitted. He continued, “I like using the re one to say someone is burned, and then I use the pistol for ‘shots red,’” Cheek said. Like Cheek, junior Julianna Benak named several emojis she regularly uses in text messages. “I really like the heart eyes one. I use that a lot. I also like the one that looks really sarcastic,” Benak said. Some students opt to use the more complex pictures, ranging from animals to owers to food, while others choose the simpler emojis. “I like the smiley face because it always smiles and it’s just always happy,” Lamar Merilien, a freshman, said.Veterans serve again at CHSBy SERGIO ALBARRACINCHS SENIORThe armed services are very important to our everyday lives. Thanks to veterans, American citizens can enjoy the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution. Charlotte High School has the honor of employing some of the nation’s vets. Angel Pagan is a security guard at Charlotte High who served in the U.S. Army for many years. He joined after graduating from high school in order to create a career for himself. “I knew I had to leave and do something with my life,” Pagan said. Sheila Lacrete, a social worker at Charlotte, also joined the Army for the opportunities. She joined the Army in order to repay her student loans and go on to graduate school. Looking back on the experience, Lacrete enjoyed her time in the Army. “I love the fact that I have served my country,” Lacrete said. Bill Gomes, a science and math teacher at Charlotte, also understands the experience the Army gives you. He served for 20 years in the Army and feels it has changed his life for the better. Gomes believes the Army has led him to where he is now. “It all goes back to what I learned in the Army,” said Gomes.

Friday, February 20, 2015 Herald Page 15 Steve Knapp Sports WriterSteve Knapp is a sports writer and photographer. Contact him at Gene Gorman JV Wrestling Tournament was like a day in the park for the Charlotte High School junior varsity wrestling team. They had no problems with any of their competition, leaving the arena at 5-0 for the day. Even the teams that expected to give the Tarpons a close match fell to the powerful Tarpon matmen. The team from North Fort Myers High School served as a warm-up for the Tarpons, with the team from Punta Gorda earning a perfect score of 78-0 in the opening match. Every match ended up with either a forfeit or with the North Fort Myers’ wrestlers on their backs counting the lights on the ceiling. The North Port High School Bobcats were expected to be more of a chal lenge, but they were the next in line to feel the strength of the Tarpon team. The Tarpons coasted to a 60-18 win. One of the most exciting matches in the dual came at 152 pounds. Anthony Marcoguiseppe was trailing the Bobcat’s Aaron Green 6-2 as they entered the nal period. The Tarpon freshman came back to tie the match at seven, forcing an overtime period. Marcoguiseppe took down Green and put him on his back for a three-point near fall and a 12-7 win. The rest of the teams fell like trees at a logging camp. Only Riverdale High School gave any kind of challenge to the Tarpons, but they still were buried 52-24. Ida Baker High School left plenty of back prints on the Charlotte mats as they fell 66-9. Lakewood Ranch High School also felt the sting of the Tarpons with a 62-12 loss. Seven Tarpons went undefeated for the day. Mike Schebel at 106 pounds and Robert Lencsak at 113 were perfect for the tournament. In the middle of Tarpon coach Joe Amick’s lineup were Elijah Noel at 132 and Austin Wise at 160 — they also went undefeated. Noel stuck all ve of his opponents, while Wise got pins in four of his ve matches. The big boys kept up their end of the lineup as Tyler Rainville at 170 pounds, Tyler Midkiff at 195 and heavyweight Brian Ireland each posted 5-0 marks for the day. Rainville was also selected as the most valuable wrestler of the tournament. And it was a proud day for the coach. “We have shown that all of our hard work this season has paid off with vast improvements,” Amick said proudly. ”We’ve gotten better in our technique and moves, along with our tenacity. I’m very proud of these boys.”Tarpons undefeated in Gorman Tournament These trophies, medals and the award for the most valuable wrestler stayed with the Charlotte High School Tarpons as they rolled through ve opponents in the Gene Gorman JV Wrestling Tournament.HERALD PHOTOS BY STEVE KNAPP A very happy Charlotte High School wrestling team waits for their next oppo nent after taking a 78-0 win over North Fort Myers High School in the opening match of the Gene Gorman JV Wrestling Tournament.

Charlotte High School seniors Kayla Magaw and Carly Kotarski were honored recently for their contributions to the girls’ basketball program. Mike Robishaw, the girls’ varsity bas ketball coach, said, “They both started playing for me back in the fourthor fth-grade in the Tiny Tarpons program.” He continued, “For them to stick with basketball for that long says something about their dedication, commitment and loyalty to the team. They both have sacriced their summers to be a part of the team. I hope they have good memories from their careers with the Tarpons and built some good friendships along the way.”Seniors honored for contributing to hoops program Steve Knapp Sports WriterSteve Knapp is a sports writer and photographer.
