Thursday night last week, a decent-sized crowd settled into the bleachers of Tom Golisano Field House at Ave Maria University, set out like a holy Vegas rising from Corkscrew Swamp east of Naples. Someday, the community of Ave Maria may grow into a real city. It’s far from it now, though, and a decent-sized crowd here means 200plus. Most had come to support the men and lady Gyrenes, who were hosting the visiting Seahawks of Northwood University of West Palm Beach. Not me. I was there with old high school pals — Jimmy, Laz and wife Janet — to see another old pal, Ken Gabelman, coach Northwood. Gabe was our high school’s point guard and we last played together 46 years ago. I stunk, but Gabe was good enough to start for a lousy team. Most importantly, his attention to detail led to a teaching career with a concentration on basketball. He kept his hand in after retirement, and Thursday night he occupied the rst seat on the bench as Northwood’s assistant. To Gabe’s immediate right was his mentor, head coach Roland V. Massimino, who also drew attention from savvy fans in Golisano. Rollie Massimino is a deity in the mythology of American college basketball. Mercury, the diminutive god of thieves. The trickster. Or, as the simplest metaphor has it: Goliath’s pebble-whipping opponent. Thirty years ago next month, Rollie’s Villanova University beat Patrick Ewing’s heavily favored Georgetown University for the NCAA Tournament championship. By a bucket. It was a smiting worthy of the Valley of Elah and when the nal buzzer sounded, Rollie ascended to the Pantheon. That game was played before a national TV audience of millions and a crowd of 24,000-plus at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Ky. Thursday night’s crowd was innitesimally smaller. After the Lady Gyrenes game ended, after the home seniors received plaques and their mothers owers, after the national anthem and a prayer, the men’s game commenced. Twelve seconds in, Rollie was up off his seat, gesturing and shouting instructions. Now 80, he looked the same as he did at Villanova. Short and balding, with a halo of gray hair above his ears. A rumpled navy blue sport coat. J aw working gum relentlessly. When the Gyrenes’ rst shot fell through the hoop, Rollie shook his head and headed back to his seat. When the Seahawks played in our end, he stood and called instructions. He crossed his elbows, placed a hand on his chin and pummeled the gum. In the second half, when a Hawk banked a long jumper off the backboard, he turned to the seven rows of bleachers behind him and cracked, “That’s how I drew it up.” We were appreciative. The team eventually sailed to a 61-44 victory and in the end we loyal few stood and applauded. Last month, when Gabe’s high school pals (minus me) attended a game in West Palm, they were invited into the locker room at halftime. It was a revelation, Jimmy told me. Rollie didn’t do Knute Rockne. No rousing at-em-boy speeches. He was even-tem pered, but forceful and convincing. “I was ready to run through a wall for him,” Jimmy said. Rollie’s had downs and ups in the years since the magic in Lexington. He works smaller venues, far from the spotlight of March Madness. But even in Nowhere, Fla., the old coach can still bring it.

From single-family homes to restaurants and retail stores, the city is experiencing a resurgence of building activity it hasn’t seen in years. And construction is about to pick up the pace. Four new major construction projects are preparing to get underway this year, including: a 52-unit apartment complex on W. Henry Street behind the Slip-Not bar and restaurant. a 3,000-square-foot retail store at the corner of E. McKenzie and U.S. 41, across from the Dollar General. a 7,700-square-foot auto parts store at 1202 Tamiami Trail. a 60-unit mixed-income senior housing community. “Construction has denitely picked up,” said Punta Gorda zoning ofcial Teri Tubbs. No doubt, the whir of construction around the city has increased substantially in the last 12 months. In 2014, for example, Punta Gorda issued a total of 108 building permits, 39 of which were issued for commercial build-outs, city building ofcials said.

Public workouts will continue each morning this week. The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Ofce is switching vendors for its video visitation service, which allows jail inmates to communicate with loved ones or attorneys through a program similar to Skype. The transition is slated to begin next month. The Sheriff’s Ofce recently determined a Montgomery Technology Inc. software malfunction caused the system to record privileged attorney-client conversations — perhaps more than 1,900 between 2011 and January. The issue has become the focus in a pending murder case, in which the defendant’s lawyer is asking a judge to dismiss charges because he and his client had a video chat recorded and sent to prosecutors. The sheriff’s Bureau of Detention Commander, Maj. Earl Goodwyne, said the agency began searching for a new vendor prior to learning about MTI’s software issue and the recordings. He said the decision was “very complicated” and had to do with “cost-saving necessities.” Sheriff’s spokeswoman Debbie Bowe said Jail to use new video visitation vendor By ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERVIDEO | 3 Early-year home sales and prices are up signicantly from a year ago, giving local real estate agents something to smile about in 2015. “I think people are realizing if they wait too much longer (to buy), prices will continue to go up,” said Jim Quinn, Punta GordaPort Charlotte-North Port Association of Realtors president. “There’s been a lot of cash on the sidelines for a while, but people are starting to put money back into real estate.” January historically is one of the slowest months for home sales, but local numbers are better than in the past, according to Realtor information released Monday. There were 299 closed single-family home sales in the area this January, and the median selling price was $157,500. Both those gures are nearly 20 percent higher than last January, when there were 251 sales with a median price of $133,000. Moreover, the median number of days a home sat on the market before being sold last month was a recent low of just six weeks. This comes despite a whopping 648 new listings in January, compared to 860 over the previous two months combined.Home prices risingBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERHOME | 5 Home ownership down in Florida See THE WIRE CORRECTION: Forty-five local authors attended the Charlotte Harbor Book Festival Sunday.

The Sun /Tuesday, February 24, 2015 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 3 FROM PAGE ONE the agency posted the request for proposal (RFP) for a vendor for video visitation on Jan. 5. Two days prior, court records show, jail detective Jessica Bryant sent a video of 20th Judicial Circuit Assistant Public Defender Toby Oonk and accused killer Dwayne Johnson to local Assistant State Attorney Molly Metza. The State Attorney’s Ofce, Oonk and the Sheriff’s Ofce became aware of the incident about a week later. An internal investigation by the Sheriff’s Ofce shows there were at least four other privileged conversations recorded and distributed, but many other private talks may have been captured. Video chats between inmates and non-attorneys are recorded, but MTI’s technology was not supposed to capture conversations between inmates and attorneys. Alabama-based MTI said it provided the Sheriff’s Ofce with a software patch to resolve the issue in mid-January. However, another attorney-client video was discovered earlier this month. “The company said it was xed,” Goodwyne said Friday, the day the RFP closed and a decision was made to move on from MTI. “But then it happened again.” Global Tel Link — which handles inmate phone-call services — has been chosen as the next video visitation vendor. MTI had the role since video-chat options became available to inmates about seven years ago. The Sheriff’s Ofce Monday was unable to provide information about the new contract, including potential cost-savings. “The rst part of the transition from our current provider to GTL takes place on March 20, when the from-home visitation services will be sus pended,” Bowe said. “Meanwhile, the video visitation services provided at our jail’s visitation center will continue as usual during the transition period. Once the new GTL system is in place, we will post new instructions on our website for the new from-home visitation.” Oonk’s motion to dismiss charges against Johnson — which was consolidated with a motion to remove the SAO for the 20th Judicial Circuit from the case — began being heard Friday at the Charlotte County Justice Center before 20th Circuit Judge George Richards. That same day, the CCSO notied lawyers that it will not be able to use video visitation with inmates in the near future. “As a result of the matters involved in the court hearings, the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Ofce notied the Charlotte County Bar Association that we would no longer be able to provide video visitation for attorneys pending the installation of the new video visitation system,” Bowe said. “Attorneys will continue to be provided locations within the secure jail facility to meet with their clients.” Oonk’s motion will continue to be heard Thursday.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comVIDEOFROM PAGE 1 MURDOCK — Clif Kewley wants to hear what Manasota Key property owners think about establishing a beach renourishment program. Kewley chairs the Charlotte County Beaches and Shores Advisory Committee, which intends to discuss erosion issues on Manasota Key at its next meeting. That meeting is scheduled 9 a.m. March 5 in the conference room of the Charlotte Building Construction Services Conference Room, 18400 Murdock Circle, Port Charlotte. “(The committee agenda) will include a discussion of erosion issues affecting Manasota Key and potential courses of action to address resident concerns,” Kewley said. Kewley’s goal is to include the input of residents and property owners into the discussion. He views the committee as a venue where the public, county staff and others can have a dialogue on issues. Beach renourishment is not a new issue for Manasota Key, but it may be one that’s gaining support. More than once, the county’s Stump Pass management consultant Michael Poff — vice president of Coastal Engineering Consultants — met with Manasota Key residents to discuss beach renourishment. He explained to owners with property fronting the Gulf how they could create a municipal service benet unit for beach renour ishment like property owners on Knight Island have. Between 2001 and 2003, Poff said he saw a 50/50 split among Manasota Key residents between those who wanted and would help pay “a fair share” for beach renourishment and those who don’t. “Since then, I’ve gone to the (South Manasota/Sandpiper Key Association) meeting, but there’s been no formal consensus polls,” Poff said Monday. However, he has been elding more calls from Manasota Key residents who seem more interested in seeing their beachfronts renourished. Manasota Key resident Betty Sue Carroll said Monday there’s been renewed interest in beach renourishment. Gulf properties, particularly those north of the public Englewood Beach, are seeing signicant erosion. “There’s a lot of inter est, but nothing organized yet,” Carroll said. On Knight Island, south of Stump Pass, only those property owners fronting on the Gulf pay into a special beach renourishment MSBU. The property owners pay $15.71 per linear foot fronting on the Gulf. An 80-foot wide property would pay a $1,256.80 assessment. There are 12,561.07 linear feet fronting on the Gulf within the MSBU. Knight Island property owners not on the Gulf pay into the Stump Pass Municipal Service Taxing Unit — like all Charlotte County property owners west of the Myakka River. The MSTU rate is 0.1927 mills. A mill is $1 per $1,000 of taxable value or $19.27 per $100,000 of taxable value. Besides the MSTU and MSBU, Poff said Stump Pass dredging and beach renourishment receives $150,000 in funding annually from the county’s tourist taxes, $150,000 from the county’s share of West Coast Inland Navigation District funding and another $50,000 in Boater Improvement funding. Ultimately, with support of Manasota Key, county commissioners could decide whether to create a new Manasota Key MSBU for beach renourishment.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comCommittee wants input on beach renourishmentBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSCCU launches new featureCharlotte County Utilities has launched a new customer service feature available to the public on the county’s website — the ability to view CCU’s countywide utility map.

Our Town Page 4 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, February 24, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS SARASOTA COUNTY — During a discussion on the school’s charter renewal held Tuesday, members of the Sarasota County School Board asked representatives of Imagine School at North Port how they plan to increase enrollment in the coming school year. Imagine applied for a 15-year renewal of its charter, which expires June 30, in January, according to Natalie Roca, integrated instructional services executive director for the district. “If approved, we move into negotiations with the (school’s) governing board to enter into a new charter, and then that comes back to you for approval as well,” she said. Reps from the city’s only charter school attended Tuesday’s Sarasota County School Board workshop. At the meeting on behalf of Imagine were upper campus principal Steve Black; Aleisha Coover, elementary principal; and the school’s governing board: president Chris Phillips, vice president Jennifer Desrosiers, secretary Dave Quarderer and treasurer Brian Beason. The school is in the process of lling one vacant board seat. Imagine’s enrollment has important nancial ramications. The K-12 school’s nancial problems date back nearly two years, when former principal Justin Matthews led an $8 million budget in 2013, overestimating enrollment by 200 and including 4.7 percent raises for all staff. Last summer, the school district required the North Port school, as well as the Imagine Palmer Ranch location — both of which borrowed from Virginia-based parent company Imagine Schools Inc. to continue operations unabated — to submit nancial plans as to how they planned to deal with the lack of funding. Imagine North Port created a task force to identify cost reductions and cut staff salaries by 5.5 percent, eliminated one full-time position and reduced several staff to part time this school year to save money until enrollment increases. “The board did pass an amended budget,” Phillips said, promising a copy to the board. “Our biggest goal is to have a balanced budget ... and we want to make sure our student enrollments match our projections. A few years ago, they didn’t match, and that created a decit. We have tried to mitigate that decit, and our upcoming budget will be more conservative.” As of the most recent count, 1,028 students attend Imagine, 139 fewer than projected. In grade levels eight and nine, where school staff say they struggle with retention, there are currently 102 and 70 students, respectively, in those classes. “For next year, you’ve got what looks to be 100 students projected for eighth, and 111 for ninth grade. And looking back historically, your ninth grade has fallen back.” School Board member Shirley Brown asked, “How do you retain what you have but also get more?” Fellow board member Jane Goodwin — who admitted running a high school is hard — also was concerned about enrollment numbers, and asked how the school arrives at its projections. “That number is derived in a meeting we hold each year with (district Deputy Chief Financial Ofcer) Al Weidner and school leaders. Sometimes it’s our best guess,” Black said, adding the school has formed a task force with members from both students and staff to look at why some students leave Imagine around the start of high school. “The area where we have concern is grades eight and nine — and we’re working on what are some things we can do to improve the retention number. ... As we get to the point of putting early bird (projection) numbers, we can revise those. It’s very, very important we not guess.” Brown wanted to know, since the shakeup involving Matthews, if things have settled down. Beason, the father of three Imagine students, joined the governing board because of the situation. “I’ve been on the board for over a year, and I think my optimism for the school is higher than it ever had been,” he said. “This board does not intend to go down that road again. ... We have two leaders who care about the school, and have been in the paper for a lot of good reasons. That’s the way we want to be moving forward. We recognize that we have issues that need to be corrected, and assure you that we’re going to correct them.” Brown commended his involvement, and thanked the board as a whole for coming to the workshop. “You showed up in strength, and that means a lot to me,” she said. “I see that we have committed, local people on your board, committed to how this school is being run, and stepping forward at a difcult time.” Following the meeting, Black, who spoke about multiple programs at the school, said, “I think it went ne. It was a pleasure to brag about our school.” Kathy Helean, director of Imagine Inc. West Florida Region, also came out of the workshop with positive feelings. “The questions they asked were the exact questions I expected,” she said, adding the school’s board is aware of, and is addressing, the nancial concerns. The School Board will vote to approve or deny Imagine’s charter renewal application at either its March 3 or March 17 meeting.Email: annek@sun-herald.comSarasota School Board concerned over Imagine enrollmentBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSStreet work to begin on DurranceBeginning March 2, through April 18 (weather and equipment operations permitting), street improvements will commence on Durrance Street between West Olympia and West Virginia avenues in Punta Gorda.

Under the baton of CSO maestro Raffaele Ponti, Capdevila brought the audience to its feet twice with long, loud applause and shouts of “bravo.” Capdevila, a native of Cuba renowned around the world for his teaching and playing, who now lives in Port Charlotte, captivated rst with a stirring rendition of Heitor Villa-Lobos’ “Concerto Guitar & Small Orchestra,” before being brought back by the audience for a rare, mid-concert encore, an up-tempo “El Colabri,” or “The Hummingbird.” With his ngers moving along the strings literally with the speed of a hummingbird, the ovation was even louder the second time around. It was the second time for VillaLobos and a heralded guest soloist for the orchestra. Last season, it was Villa-Lobos’ “Harmonica Concerto,” with Robert Bonglio, which also brought standing ovations. The concert began with Howard Hanson’s “Symphony No. 5, Sinfonia Sacra,” the American composer’s miniature sacred symphony masterpiece, inspired by the Gospel of John, and the Resurrection of Christ — a passionate, emotional piece, expressing a depth of feeling, without words. The second half of the program brought Russian pianist and composer Sergei Rachmaninoff’s powerful classic, “Symphonic Dances,” his last and most acclaimed composition. In three movements featuring rich, lush orchestral colors, Dances covered Russian Church music, a lilting waltz and Spanish dances. It featured strings, brass and tympani, with a rare trio of oboe, clarinet and saxophone, and a majestic, crescendo close, bringing another standing ovation. In a post-concert interview, Capdevila said it was “so exciting” to appear before his hometown audience. “I had so much emotion. The applause was wonderful. Now they know I’m here.” He also revealed that his guitar, costing well into four gures, was the product of another Port Charlotte resident recognized around the world, but apparently not well-known here. He said his guitar was made by 86-year-old Pablo Quintana, who, he said, is the top maker of classical Spanish guitars in the world. He also expressed concern that in this area electric guitars rule. “It’s a shame,” he said, “that they don’t realize the beauty of a (acoustic) Spanish guitar.” He was set to entertain the audi ence in Ponti’s pre-concert 6:30 p.m. lecture Sunday, but technical problems with the stage lighting canceled the lecture, and at one point threatened the concert itself. Ken Barber, orchestra chairman, said it was “very unfortunate” that the lecture had to be canceled, but he was glad the glitch was repaired in time to allow the concert to go on as scheduled. The orchestra’s next concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., on Sunday, March 8, at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center, 701 Carmalita St., in Punta Gorda. It will feature the music of Johannes Brahms, Claude Debussy, Gustav Mahler and Johann Strauss Jr. For information, 941-205-9703, or www.charlottesymphony.com.Guitarist electrifies crowd at symphonyBy BILL JONESSUN CORRESPONDENT “It looks like sellers are guring out it’s a good time to put houses on the market,” Quinn said. Data shows the estimated time it would take to sell the 1,657 homes that were still available on Jan. 31 is just under ve months. That statistic is called “months supply of inventory.” Experts say an inventory of ve and a half months indicates a balanced market, with higher numbers reecting a buyers’ market and lower numbers suggesting a sellers’ market. The Charlotte County area has been a sellers’ market since about last April, Realtor stats indicate. Townhomes or condos only accounted for about 13 percent of total local January sales — there were 45 sold in January, down from 79 a year prior. The median selling price, however, jumped from $104,000 to $134,000 over that same time. Like the Charlotte area, Sarasota County remained a sellers’ market after the start of the new year, per data from the Realtor Association of Sarasota and Manatee. “In real estate, there are trends, peaks and valleys, and, over the years, we’ve seen a dip in sales in January,” said association president Stafford Starcher. “(But) 2015 is shaping up to be another incredible year.” There were 514 single-family homes and 229 townhomes or condos sold throughout Sarasota in January, and the months supply of inventory for each was about four and a half months. During January 2014 in Sarasota, there were 502 homes sold and 264 townhomes or condos sold. The median price in each category rose over that time — from $188,750 to $190,000 for homes, and from $176,000 to $185,000 for townhomes and condos. Homes sold in January had been sitting on the market for a median of seven weeks, and townhomes and condos took eight weeks to sell. Both gures were about the same as a year ago. Statewide, home sales, expectedly, were the fewest since early last year. However, yearover-year gures, like in the Charlotte area, could indicate a promising future. Single-family sales rose from 14,628 last January to 16,087 this January — a 10 percent bump. And, the median price increased over that period by more than 7 percent, from $163,000 to $175,000. Data shows there is a balanced market between buyers and sellers in Florida. There were 7,294 townhomes or condos sold last month at a median price of $137,000. A year prior, there were 7,418 townhomes or condos sold at a median price of $130,000. In both Sarasota and Charlotte, the number of home sales was down from December to January, which is in line with the statewide and national trend. But, National Association of Realtors chief economist Lawrence Yun says early-year month-tomonth drops are normal. “January housing data can be volatile because of seasonal inuences,” he said. “Although sales cooled in January, home prices continued solid year-over-year growth. The labor market and economy are markedly improved compared to a year ago, which supports stronger buyer demand.” There were about 4.8 million single-family homes, townhomes, condos and co-ops sold across America last month, up about 3 percent from January 2014. The median price for all sales was up more than 6 percent, to nearly $199,600.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comHOMEFROM PAGE 1 SINGLEFAMILYHOMESSOLDBYPUNTAGORDAPORTCHARLOTTENORTHPORTREALTORS, NOVEMBER2011JANUARY2015 —Source:MyFloridaRegionalMLS 299 600 550 500 450 400 350 300 250 200 150 100 50 0NDJFMAMJJASONDJFMAMJJASONDJFMAMJJASONDJ —Source:MyFloridaRegionalMLS$150K $160K $170K $140K $80K $90K $100K $110K $120K $130K MEDIANHOMESALEPRICESFROMPUNTAGORDAPORTCHARLOTTENORTHPORTREALTORS, NOVEMBER2011JANUARY2015 NDJFMAMJJASONDJFMAMJJASONDJFMAMJJASONDJ $157,500 represents an increase of more than 25 percent for commercial renovations and remodels from the 31 issued the previous year. This year, construction is anticipated to outpace that. Just take a look at the U.S. 41 corridor between downtown and Airport Road. Last week, the small building at 1228 Tamiami Trail, which once housed a “gold store,” was demolished to make way for a 3,000-square-foot Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida bookstore and a small drive-thru lane for dropoffs, Tubbs said. “It’s going to be very small. It’s not going to be for any large donations,” Tubbs said. One lot to the north, at 1202 Tamiami Trail, a new O’Reilly Auto Parts store is set to go up too, she said. O’Reilly Auto Parts purchased the .79-acre lot at the corner of Williams Street and Tamiami Trail where the former Pierce building used to be and plans to open a 7,700-squarefoot retail store this year. “They’ve stepped up to the plate as far as what they are submitting,” Tubbs said, noting that the company submitted elegantly designed plans for the new building. A few blocks south on W. Henry Street, Naplesbased developer Henry Street Advisors, LLC is gearing up to build a community of rental apartments on roughly 3 acres just behind the old Slip-Not. Oaks on Henry is one of two rental projects being built since 2007 when Charleston Cay in Port Charlotte was constructed. The other rental project on tap for this year is The Verandas of Punta Gorda, a 60-unit senior housing community being developed by the Punta Gorda Housing Authority. Norstar Development USA, PGHA’s development partner, will design, engineer and build The Verandas, which will replace the senior housing units lost in Hurricane Charley. The estimated start date for the project is later this year. PGHA plans to follow up the completion of The Verandas with a second phase to bring the total number of senior units to 120. After a long period of idleness, the recent urry of construction activity is welcomed news to many in the housing industry, albeit with a touch of caution. Longtime Realtor and Punta Gorda resident Lindsey Harrington is keeping a watchful eye on home sales and construction activity around town. He remembers when real estate shot to the top in 2005 and crashed a few years later. “If we can keep this momentum up past the summer,” Harrington said, “then this community will have really pulled through — permanently.”Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comBOOMINGFROM PAGE 1 PET HAVEN Cemetery & Cremation Services adno=50478514 2 7 2 0 0 J o n e s L o o p R d . 27200 Jones Loop Rd. 941-637-0332 A Special Place To Honor & Visit Your Pet Forever Pre-planning Available w w w . r o y a l p a l m m e m o r i a l . c o m www.royalpalmmemorial.com 27200 Jones Loop Rd.www.royalpah=emortal.com

The company is distributing $42,000 in grants to 42 teachers around the state. The money will be used to help teachers who are educating students on the importance of energy conservation and engineering. The FPL grants will help fund all kinds of projects, including solar-powered ovens, water-powered cars and wind generators. In Sarasota County, Imagine School at North Port and Gocio Elementary won the grants. Imagine upper campus’ robotics instructor, Gary Biggs, received the grant for the charter school’s robotics program, which started last year and is offered to students in ninth through 12th grades as an elective course. Students can take robotics for three years, starting in a beginner’s class their first year and entering a more advanced-level class with each year. In Charlotte County, Deep Creek and Sallie Jones elementary schools will get funding. The awards are based on the proposed budget and number of students the project will benefit. Since 2010, the program has financed a variety of science, technology, engineer ing and math — known as STEM — and energy projects, with grants ranging from $500 to $1,000 per project. Since its inception, the program has awarded $175,000 to 175 Florida teachers.FPL funds $42K in grants for teacher energy projects Provided by AMBER ERICKSONABC-7 | POLICE BEATThe information for Police Beat is gath ered from police, sheriff’s office, Florida Highway Patrol, jail and fire records.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT — Dr. Lee Gross has just returned from Tallahassee after presenting an idea to the Health Innovation Subcommittee there, which he hopes will prompt legislation allowing him and fellow physician Dr. William Crouch to continue making routine health care as affordable as a trip to the gym. Gross and Crouch are the founding physicians of Epiphany Health, an offspring of Prime Health of North Port, their family practice located at 2975 Bobcat Village Center Road, off Toledo Blade Boulevard, that began in 2002. Gross said Epiphany Health got its name from an “a-ha” moment he and Crouch had while considering why independent practices like theirs were rapidly disappearing around the region. “We realized we needed to nd ways to provide affordable health care to our patients that didn’t have health insurance, couldn’t afford coverage or had high-deductible health plans that needed affordable access to health care,” Gross said. An employer in the community was looking for a cheaper way to cover his workers and approached the doctors. He offered to pay them directly for his employees’ care in order to back off from the high costs he would have to pay into an insurance plan. “It was like a light bulb went on,” Gross said. “That’s when we had our epiphany.” The doctors thought about the issue then came up with a plan they called “a direct primary-care program,” which they launched in 2010. “Basically what we do is we directly contract with our patients and with employers to provide primary-care services for a at monthly fee,” Gross said. “It’s much like joining a health club. Our at monthly fee is less than most people typically pay for their cellphones or cable television service.” Those fees are $50 per month for an adult and $25 per month for a child, with $10 a month for each additional child in a mem ber family. Patients must be between 5 and 64 years of age and not enrolled in Medicare. “We don’t either exclude or charge extra for any pre-existing conditions,” Gross said. “That entitles each person enrolled in the program up to 25 ofce visits per year at no additional charge.” Extra member services include an electrocar diogram, one annual u vaccine, a colon cancer screening, disability paperwork processing and school physicals. For a premium membership ($83 per month for the rst adult, $69 a month for a spouse or domestic partner, $49 a month for the rst child and $29 a month for each additional child), women can get an annual mammogram and pap test; men, an annual prostate cancer blood test; and a wellness lab panel once a year for everyone. “We have complete price transparency with all of our network phy sicians,” Gross said. “For example, the cash price on a chest X-ray is about $22. If we need a CAT scan, we can get one for $175 or an MRI for $200. Those are what the patient would pay and are not included in the program, but they’re negotiated prices that we have with our providers. So patients will pay $35 for a physical therapy session, for example, whereas if they had traditional insurance they might be paying a $50 co-pay. In many cases people can save money by going outside of their insurance, just paying cash for things based on prices negotiated.” Gross added Epiphany Health has contracted with two national laboratories. They purchase the lab work wholesale and pass on the savings — roughly 90-95 percent — to their patients, he said. “One of the patients I rst enrolled had rheumatoid arthritis and was quoted about $1,800 for her blood work to go to the lab,” Gross said. “We re-priced it under our program and it was about $80.” The idea has garnered a lot of national attention, he added, but his concern is it might lead lawmakers to construe the service as a form of health insur ance, which could then force restrictive regulations upon it. That is what led him to Tallahassee to present the plan to the Health Innovation Subcommittee in the Florida House, chaired by Rep. Ken Roberson, R-Punta Gorda. “I showed them the hospital bill from one of my patients who went to the emergency room for abdominal pain and ran up a bill of $19,000,” Gross said. “I showed them that if that patient had come to our ofce and we ran the same exact tests, that same bill would have come to about $285. I showed them if you remove the primary care services from health insurance and just pay a xed monthly membership, you could make access to primary care services and routine medical care affordable for basically everyone.” Gross added the bipar tisan subcommittee gave a positive response to his presentation. “We’re hopeful that in a few weeks they’ll be introducing a bill that will come up for debate in the House,” he said. “We need clarication in the Florida Legislature that direct primary care practices are not health insurance and are not regulated as such. That’s the protection that’s really necessary for programs like ours to expand and thrive. There also needs to be consumer protection, so I suppose that any legislation that comes out of that committee will include language that protects patients in the event that the practice goes out of business.” For more information about Epiphany Health, go to www. epiphanyhealth.net or call 941-423-9936.Local doctors spearhead ‘health club’ health careBy STEVEN J.

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, February 24, 2015 GOP ‘traitors,’ by denitionEditor: Rep. Tom Rooney’s column on Feb. 12 disrespecting President Obama’s facts on religious wars is appalling. Rooney and the “do nothing Congress” with a 10 percent nationwide approval has engaged in destroying our nation. Rooney acknowledges the horrible mess the previous president left our country with, including the unwarranted (WMD) war that destabilized the Middle East that produced ISIS and others alike. Rooney’s divisive column toward our president is a terrorist act. A traitor (Webster) is one who betrays a person, a principle, or especially their country. Rooney and the Republican Party choose to work in opposition to their nation’s best interest, with intent to deliberately damage and cause harm to the country. Rooney and his colleagues are by Webster denition, traitors. More despicable is their actions on racial animus for Obama; and allegiance to foreign nations. Republicans’ malicious, calculated and concerted acts of betrayal by joining with the leader of a foreign nation “against their own president.” Their traitorous act to destroy the economy and to undermine separation of powers and ofce of the president is a betrayal of the Constitution. Conservative “Forbes” magazine accused Boehner of seeking to damage our president by helping a foreign nation. If you care and believe that Republicans have acted as ter rorists within our government, I appeal, change your party afliation and start supporting candidates who do not Babel trash (Ecclesiastes 10:11) and work toward the betterment of its citizen and country. Dan Rodriguez Port CharlotteVocational schools leave no child behindEditor: We should positively change the direction of our educational system. President Obama has suggested that everyone should have a free two-year community college education. At present, especially in the inner cities, the rst year or two of college is wasted with “remedial” English and basic math courses because high schools are “graduating” students without these basic skills. Most city and state colleges have programs which accept these students at no or little cost. We are “dumbing-down” our higher educational system to accept people who really do not want to go to college but have no other path to follow. If the government wants to do something in the educational eld that makes sense it should help develop and nance a comprehensive vocational education system which will train a segment of our youth in the modern aspects of professions that do not need a formal college education. Starting with vocational high schools, which would give the students the opportunity to see what is available for them. Then training them with the most modern equipment available would lead to specialty training and internships by industry. A large segment of our youth would then be prepared for full-time productive careers. With a well-trained work force we could regain our lead in world production. An all-encompassing educational system should be developed now. Under such a system we would really have “no child left behind.”Martin Mandel EnglewoodLiberals lack common senseEditor: I’m amazed, at the lack of common sense exhibited by some liberals. We suffer an epidemic of measles after thousands of unvaccinated illegal children are forced into our schools. Liberals ignore the exposure, and claim new regulations will cure measles. A politically correct liberal wrote Bush was a bigger spender than Obama. He compared the national debt at the end of Bush’s eight years to Obama’s six-year increase. Actually, Bush ran up $4.6 trillion in debt over eight years, while Obama ran up $8 trillion in six years, twice as much. At a prayer breakfast, Obama opined radical Muslin brutality as no worse than Christian Middle Age atrocities, 900 years of civilization have bettered Christians, but sees no reason for radical Muslims to improve. Fearless Leader wants increased spending, citing that his six years were hampered by “mindless austerity.” Yet, his administration has added debt of 8,000 billion dollars, with little to show for it except increased government intrusions,. Obama’s foreign policy is to apologize for America. Results are dismal at best. Candidates should be elected only for their patriotism, integrity, proven ability, experience and accomplishments, never on their party afliation alone. We cannot have responsible government by treating elections as sports events, rooting for a party to win. That way, we get loyalty to a political party instead of the Constitution, or egotistical political hacks whose motive is a “fundamental change” to the United States.William Gubb EnglewoodGod would not be homophobicEditor: I don’t believe God would be against homosexuality. What the hey, the supposed son of God, Jesus, might very well have had those tendencies. He was, I believe, a charismatic, dashing, young fellow, who it seems preferred the company of other guys. Were all of those guys single or married, or what? I don’t know, I don’t care. Bottom line: I think if God created a gay person he would love that creation as all his/her other creations, as any good parent would. Let’s give the “Big Guy/Gal” a little credit, eh? “Some there are who tell Of one who threatens he will toss to Hell The luckless Pots he marr’d in making — Pish! He’s a Good Fellow, and ’twill all be well.” — Omar KhayyamJohn O’Shea EnglewoodQuestionable reading of U.S. historyEditor: It seems that the former history teacher who wrote a letter is a little mixed up. Nixon may have only been caught in one lie, but I’m afraid he told many. Secondly, George W. Bush only got caught in one lie but many Americans lost their lives or were severely wounded because of it. Neither were impeached. As to the claim about President Obama, he correctly stated that, “We are no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.” Hope that history writers do a better job than this history teacher.Paul Whiteside Port CharlotteLosing faith in County CommissionEditor: In the past I totally trusted the Charlotte County commissioners. Of late I am having serious doubts. At the Jan. 13 meeting, one commissioner, and you know who you are, attempted to suggest the citizens’ input portion of the meeting be eliminated by stating, “If I may, we have attorneys waiting upstairs that we are paying, so could we ” He never nished his sentence as he was interrupted by another commissioner who said they needed to do citizen input as people had been waiting to speak since 9 a.m. For anyone, especially a commissioner, to even think that removing citizens’ input from the agenda would be acceptable is an abomination. As it is, people nearly always have to wait three or four hours for their meager three minutes. To add insult to injury, for the Feb. 2 meeting, an additional presentation was suddenly added to the agenda with only one-day notice, instead of the seven-day notice suggested by the guidelines of the Florida Sunshine Law. In addition, a press conference was held from 11:30 to noon. Thus the citizens’ input portion of the meeting was delayed by more than one and a half hours. The citizens nally got their three minutes only after waiting for 5 hours. Lois DeGaris Port CharlotteTake a closer look at those who carryEditor: Florida law prevents people from openly carrying rearms. Those with concealed weapons permits can intimidate people (accidentally or on purpose) by exposing the weapon, i.e., raising a shirt above a belt-holstered gun, thus terrifying the onlooker. Another neat way to scare someone is to boast that you have your nger on the trigger of the gun in your pocket; indeed a cowardly act. This may or may not be legal; a judge would decide. I agree with the Sun’s view: No more guns at Forida colleges. And I’m taking a much closer look at that guy or gal who boasts of having a concealed weapons permit. Let’s let law enforcement do their job. Et tu, Brute?Alan P. Lessman Punta GordaWe need a recall election for ObamaEditor: If our illustrious Republican Congress will not seek an impeachment of His Highness, then we, concerned American citizens, should circulate a petition to have an immediate recall election of the occupant of the White House for all of his intentional violations of his constitutional duties as president. The founders created a Republic, not a dictatorship. When is enough, enough? If there is a more serious cause for action, I want to know! I will be happy to be the rst signatory of such a petition — do I hear a second?

HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOREmail letters to letters@sun-herald.comChairman — Derek Dunn-Rankin Publisher — David Dunn-Rankin Executive Editor — Chris Porter Editorial page editor — Brian Gleason Editorial writer — Stephen Baumann Editor — John Hackworth V IEWPOINTAn enticing proposal for redevelopmentOUR POSITION: Is this the beginning of a beautiful partnership?Plans for a major redevelopment at Warm Mineral Springs took a big step last week when the North Port Planning and Zoning Advisory Board signed off on rezoning that would green-light housing, a hotel, medical ofces and retail stores in the area. And why not? The potential is enormous. If successful, the project would create a destination Wellness Center complex close to the Springs, but not on the public property itself. It promises both protection of the Springs and economic development — close to what was envisioned years ago when plans were rst hatched to put Warm Mineral Springs in public hands. The master plan submitted by Dr. Grigory Pogrebinsky — and rened and coordinated through North Port’s Planning Department — would rezone 14.1 acres of private property to the south and southwest of the Springs, which is now owned and operated by the city of North Port. The master plan would create the Warm Mineral Springs Wellness Center in a special “activity center” — that is, a zone designated for a distinctive type of development activity. The zoning would allow as much as 269,000 square feet of non-residential building space on the parcel. This would include a hotel, ofces, medical facilities and retail shops. Also included are 72 multifamily housing units. A small section nearest the Springs parcel would become a public plaza. Overall, the aim is to create an urban-style environment across from the 81-acre Springs property, now open elds and woods surrounding the Springs pond and a day spa building. Commercial buildings on Ortiz Boulevard would be set close to the street to avoid a strip-mall appearance. Building heights would be capped at three stories of “enclosed space.” Sarasota School architectural style would be required, in keeping with the look of the day spa and other buildings in the area, notably the Warm Mineral Springs Motel. A major plus would be a sewer line extension. This is necessary not only for the development but for the spa itself, which is threatened with degradation by inadequate on-site septic. Key to the project is the cohesive overall vision with desirable and complementary uses. Beyond the medical-wellness complex, we nally might see a 150-room hotel, but on private property. Pogrobinsky told us this would be a mid-level hotel, not an “upscale” resort. He also is open to adding a conference center there. Pogrobinsky also owns a two-acre and a three-acre parcel adjoining this property but in unincorporated Sarasota County. He has begun working with the county to integrate that land into the project. The overall price tag thrown out last week was $50 million, and Pogrobinsky envisions multiple investors in the various elements of the project: physical therapy, medical ofces, retail and hotel. A big chunk of change and very ambitious. But certainly attractive: private enterprise complementing open, public facilities. The City Commission will review the plan next month, and we have no reason to believe they won’t be receptive. But to work, this needs to be a true public-private partnership. It’s an attractive offer, but it will take commitment on both ends. CAMPUS CARRY LIEN AND IIOWWOULD 0 LIKE ME TO WOULD YOU LAKE ME ToCARRY YOUR B000? CARRY 'buR,uM,G1ZK?f iLv

The Sun /Tuesday, February 24, 2015 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT The victims, a man and a woman, were rst tied to a tree. Their ngers were hacked off and given out as souvenirs. Next their ears were chopped from their heads. A mob beat the man while a crowd of hundreds watched. A large corkscrew was then used to mutilate both captives, who were tossed onto a re and burned. While all this was happening, the onlookers — which included women and children — were served lemonade and deviled eggs. This isn’t a scene from the latest ISIS video in Syria. It’s a homegrown American atrocity that took place in 1904 in Doddsville, Miss. A black man named Luther Holbert and a woman thought to be his wife were snatched by a lynch mob on suspicion of killing a white landowner. No prosecution, no trial, no nding of guilt. The deaths were two of 3,959 “racial terror lynchings” in 12 Southern states between 1877 and 1950, according to the Equal Justice Initiative. The Alabamabased legal-rights group spent ve years researching such murders, and how they were used to terrify African-American communities. As horried as we are by the beheadings aired by thugs of the Islamic State, the barbaric spectacles that for decades took place in town squares and public parks across the Deep South were no less monstrous. Racial lynchings often were staged in a festive carnival atmosphere with large crowds. Sometimes enterprising printers peddled postcards featuring photos of the mangled dead body. A white mob in Dyersburg, Tenn., took a hot poker iron to a black man named Lation Scott. They carved out his eyes before ramming the poker down his throat, castrating him and “burning him alive over a slow re.” This part of our past is so despicable that it remains uncommemorated — and seldom mentioned — in many of the places where it occurred. The EJI study, released Feb. 10, focused on lynchings that weren’t the result of any criminal trial or procedure. It found that Phillips County, Ark., led the South with 243. Four parishes in Louisiana were next with a combined 179 lynchings during the 70-plus years that were reviewed. Florida had 331 known “terror” lynchings, sever al counties being among the worst in the nation. Near the top of that list was Orange County, now home to Disney World. Other counties that racked up double-digit numbers of lynchings were Polk, Columbia, Taylor, Marion and Alachua, better known these days as the site of the University of Florida. Lynching spiked throughout the South in the years following the Civil War, as whites desperately fought to maintain domination and keep African-American neighborhoods in fear. The U.S. government did nothing to stop the ter ror; incredibly, Congress refused to pass a law to ban lynching. From the EJI report: “Not a single white person was convicted of murder for lynching a black person in America during this period, and of all lynchings committed after 1900, only 1 percent resulted in a lyncher being convicted of a criminal offense.” Defenders of the practice claimed mob action was necessary to suppress a trend of black men raping white women. Such myth-mongering became a license to murder. Some of the cases reported by EJI: In 1904, a black man in Reevesville, S.C., was lynched for knocking on the door of a white woman’s house. In 1916, a black man named Jeff Brown was lynched for accidentally bumping into a white girl while he was running to catch a train in Cedarbluff, Miss. In 1919, a black soldier named William Little returned from World War I to his home in Blakely, Ga. He was lynched after refusing to take off his Army uniform. And in 1940, in Luverne, Ala., a black man named Jesse Thornton was lynched because he didn’t use the word “mister” when speaking about a white police ofcer. Such killings usually were set in a public place and, like the gruesome ISIS murders, were designed to shock and intimidate. If the Internet had existed back then, every lynching would have been streamed live. The world was sickened by the recent video of a Jordanian pilot being doused with gas and set are, but here’s a headline bannered in a Southern newspaper less than a century ago: ,000 WILL BURN NEGRO.” And they did. The Mississippi governor said he was “powerless to prevent it.” Such ghastly Gothic pageants are no longer tolerated in this country, proving that a culture of hate and raw cruelty can evolve into something better. Yet as we cringe at the hideous acts of terror being committed elsewhere today, it’s as essential as it is painful to remember what we ourselves were once capable of. Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may reach him at chiaasen@ miamiherald.com. Racial lynchings, our own history of terrorism Carl Hiaasen Being singled out as “the smart brother” in an American political and nancial dynasty like the Bush family must be a heavy load. But Jeb Bush went far to dispel that burdensome description with his debut address on foreign policy. With its melange of mispronunciations, mistakes and casually ignorant utterances, Bush’s speech before the Chicago Council on Global Affairs instantly reminded listeners of the not-sosmart brother — the one who already became the second Bush president. Such moments of recognition and remembrance are not auspicious for brother Jeb, whose burgeoning presidential ambition depends on persuading voters that he is emphatically not his brother George W. — or as he put it in an adlibbed line: “I am my own man.” But his Chicago outing offered little to reassure Americans wary of the ruinous foreign policy record of the Bush-Cheney administration (an electoral subset that includes almost everyone). Let’s start with the funny parts: Hoping, presumably, to move briskly past a certain disastrous trillion-dollar war, Jeb allowed that “mistakes were made in Iraq, for sure,” a remark so vague that even his brother, who once used a similar dodge in discussing torture at Abu Ghraib, would have to agree. Striving to demonstrate his familiarity with the new terror threats encircling the globe, he mentioned the Nigerian Islamist militants who call themselves “Boko Haram,” except he called them something that sounded a lot like “Beaucoup Haram.” Speaking of ISIS, the Syrian terrorist movement, he referred to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as “the guy that’s the supreme leader or whatever his new title is — head of the caliphate.” Overstating the military manpower of ISIS by a factor of 10, he said the group has 200,000 men under arms, when U.S. intelligence estimates no more than 20,000. (Before his spokesperson corrected that gaffe, it sounded as if he meant to instill fear with a mythical intelligence estimate — yet another deja vu moment.) At another point, he confused Iraq with Iran, a mistake anybody can make — and in this instance, a metaphor for his brother’s failed war, which vastly increased Iranian political, economic and military inuence over Iraq. What Bush failed to provide were specic policy ideas, sticking instead with platitudes about “strength” and “leadership.” Explaining how he would deal with ISIS, the former Florida governor kept it very simple: “We have to develop a strategy, that’s global, that takes them out. First, the strategy, you know, needs to be restrain them, tighten the noose, and then taking them out is the strategy.” Not much there for the Pentagon or the State Department, but at least he didn’t call it “strategery.” The problem facing Jeb Bush is that to prove he is his own man in full, he must somehow erase many of his own previous positions and remarks. Appearing on CNN in 2010, Jeb said of Dubya, “I have never disagreed with him ... till death do us part.” Speaking about Iraq three years later, he claimed, “The war has wound down now and it’s still way too early to judge what successes it had in providing some degree of stability in the region” (a statement that can only provoke bitter laughter today). “During incredibly challenging times, he kept us safe,” he said in praise of Dubya at the 2012 Republican convention, as if 9/11 and that fateful Presidential Daily Brieng had never happened. There are other clues to his policy predilections. For his entire career, Jeb has blindly advocated the Cuba sanctions policy that we have nally abandoned after 50 years of failure. That advocacy included a disgraceful episode in which he sought clemency from his presidential father for a bloody anti-Castro terrorist pursued by the U.S. Justice Department. In keeping with that same foolishness was his early backing of the Project for the New American Century, or PNAC, pulled together in 1997 by William Kristol, the Washington pundit best known for being wrong about everything — in particular the costs, difculties and results of invading Iraq. As the chief publicist for that war, Kristol told us it would be easy, cheap and hugely successful. Dubya believed him and evidently so did Jeb. That is an old story — but the putative Republican frontrunner recently released a list of his foreign policy advisers, which bizarrely features Paul Wolfowitz, Dubya’s deputy defense secretary and another PNAC enthusiast. Jeb’s campaign is proudly displaying the same old gang of advisers who turned the last Republican administration into wreckage. Maybe Jeb really is the smart brother. So far, however, he shows no sign of being smart enough to avoid that other brother’s devastating mistakes.

See the story on page 3.Winter swoops SouthORLANDO — Florida had one of the largest declines in homeownership in the nation during the past decade, according to new gures released Monday by the U.S. Census Bureau. The homeownership rate in Florida went from more than 73 percent at the start of 2005 to just under 65 percent at the end of last year, according to the Census. The only states with steeper declines were Nevada, North Dakota, Minnesota, Alabama and Arizona. Like Florida, Nevada and Arizona underwent a housing boom over the last decade that was followed by a severe bust during which many homeowners lost their dwellings to foreclosure. Among Florida’s largest cities, the metro area with the steepest decline in homeownership rate was South Florida, which went from a rate of 71 percent in early 2005 to 59 percent at the end of last year. Orlando’s homeownership rate went from 70 percent in 2005 to almost 62 percent last year. Metro Tampa, which also includes St. Petersburg, went from 73 percent in 2005 to 66 percent last year.Homeownership fadesBy MIKE SCHNEIDERASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERFlorida has one of the nation’s largest declines in decadeFor years, parents of babies who seem likely to develop a peanut allergy have gone to extremes to keep them away from peanut-based foods. Now a major study suggests that is exactly the wrong thing to do. Exposing infants like these to peanuts before age 1 actually helped prevent a peanut aller gy, lowering that risk by as much as 81 percent, doctors found. Instead of provoking an allergy, early exposure seemed to help build tolerance. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, called the results “without precedent” and said in a statement that they “have the potential to transform how we approach food allergy prevention.” His agency helped fund the study, the largest and most rigorous test of this concept. Results were published online Monday in the New England Journal of Medicine and discussed at an American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology confer ence in Houston. A big warning, though: The babies in the study were checked to make sure they didn’t already have a peanut allergy before they were fed foods that included peanuts, so parents of babies thought to be at risk for an allergy should not try this on their own. “Before you even start any kind of introduction these children need to be skin-tested” to prevent life-threatening reactions, said Dr. Rebecca Gruchalla, an allergy specialist at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Also, small children can choke on whole peanuts, so smooth peanut butter or other peanut-based foods are safer, said Gruchalla, who wrote a commentary on the study in the journal. The main nding — that early exposure to a problem food may keep it from becoming a long-term problem — should change food guidelines quickly, she predicted. “Isn’t it wild? It’s counterintuitive in certain ways and in other ways it’s not,” she said.Study: Peanut exposure prevents allergyBy MARILYNN MARCHIONEASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER AP PHOTOThis photo shows an arrangement of peanuts.

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, February 24, 2015 WORLD NEWS KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine delayed a promised pullback of heavy weapons from the front line Monday, blaming continuing attacks from separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine. Under a peace agreement reached Feb. 12, both sides are to withdraw their heavy weapons 16 to 44 miles back to create a buffer zone. Ukrainian ofcials said Sunday they were planning to start. However, military spokesman Lt. Col. Anatoliy Stelmakh told reporters on Monday the pullback will not begin until rebel attacks stop entirely, in line with a cease-re that was supposed to begin Feb. 15. Stelmakh said there were two rebel artillery attacks overnight and although this is signicantly fewer than in previous days, “as long as ring on Ukrainian military positions continues, it’s not possible to talk about a pullback.” Col. Valentyn Fedichev, deputy commander of the military operation against the rebels, said there had been 27 attacks against Ukrainian forces over the past 24 hours, which he said was lower than in recent days. He also indicated that no pullback was imminent. “If the enemies continue to use their own heavy weapons, it is clear that Ukraine will continue to counteract these operations,” he said. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s observer mission in Ukraine is supposed to be monitoring the weapons withdrawal. Its spokesman, Michael Bocuirkiw, told the AP on Monday the monitors had seen heavy weapons movements by both sides but could not tell whether weapons were being pulled back or just being redeployed. Under the peace agreement that was worked out after all-night talks between Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France on Feb. 12, the weapons pullback is to commence when shooting ends and be completed within two weeks. An Associated Press reporter on Monday saw Ukrainian forces moving back from around the town of Debaltseve, which was captured last week by rebel forces after a erce weekslong siege. Both Stelmakh and Fedichev said rebels are still trying to overrun a Ukrainian government position in the village of Shyrokyne, on the outskirts of the strategic port city of Mariupol. Rebels began moving toward Mariupol last August, raising concerns they were seeking to seize the city in order to establish a land corridor between mainland Russia and the Russia-annexed Crimean peninsula.Ukraine delays heavy weapons pullback, blames rebel attacks AP PHOTOA Ukrainian soldier smiles riding on a self-propelled artillery piece near Artemivsk, eastern Ukraine, Monday. ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Caught between its own deant campaign pledges and pressure from creditors, Greece’s left-wing government was readying a list of reforms demanded by debt inspectors for nal approval of extended rescue loans. But it is already facing dissent within its ruling party over claims it is backtracking on its recent election-winning promises to ease budget cuts for the recession-battered Greeks. A government ofcial said the list will be sent early Tuesday — pushing a deadline by a few hours — and be reviewed at a teleconference of eurozone nance ministers later in the day. The ofcial spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to make comments to news media. Greece and bailout creditors have been in a standoff since Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ left-wing Syriza party won general elections last month on a pledge to tear up bailout agreements and seek a massive write-off of bailout debts, totaling 240 billion euros ($271 billion). But they reached an agreement Friday to extend the country’s rescue loan program by four months, avoiding the risk of a Greek default and exit from the euro currency. The government ofcial said reforms would focus on curbing tax evasion and excessive bureaucracy and address poverty caused by a six-year recession. “Creditors will be skeptical. These are notoriously difcult reforms and, in the case of the latter, usually cost money,” said Megan Greene, chief economist at Manulife Asset Management.Greece readies new list of bailout reforms | WORLDFamilies of 3 missing UK girls urge ‘Please come home!’LONDON (AP) — Turkish police searched Monday for three missing British schoolgirls believed to be headed to Syria to join the Islamic State extremist group as their frightened families issued urgent pleas begging the girls to return home. The girls, said to be “straight-A students” from the same east London school, disappeared last Tuesday without leaving any messages. Authorities said they boarded a Turkish Airlines plane to Istanbul. The relatives of Shamima Begum and Amira Abase, both 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, broke down in tears as they spoke of their fears in televised interviews on British TV. “We miss you. We cannot stop crying,” said Abase Hussen, Amira’s father, clutching a teddy bear Amira gave to her mother on Mother’s Day. “Please think twice. Don’t go to Syria.”Rights group says airstrikes in Libya killed civiliansCAIRO (AP) — A leading international human rights group said Monday that the Egyptian military failed to take the necessary precautions to avoid civilian casualties during its airstrikes last week against what Cairo said were militant targets in Libya. Egypt launched the strikes following the beheadings of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in the Libyan city of Sirte by militants afliated with the Islamic State group, which has captured parts of Iraq and Syria and now has also gained a foothold in the North Africa country.Girl bomber kills 5 in northeastern Nigerian marketPOTISKUM, Nigeria (AP) — A girl as young as 10 blew herself up in a busy market in northeastern Nigeria, killing herself and four others, fueling fears Islamic extremists are using kidnapped girls as suicide bombers. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack Sunday, which also seriously wounded 46 people, but it bore the hallmarks of Nigeria’s homegrown extremist group, Boko Haram. The girl, who appeared to be no more than 10 years old, got out of a tricycle taxi in front of the busy cellphone market in Potiskum and minutes later her explosives detonated, according to Anazumi Saleh, a survivor.Malls in Paris, London raise securityPARIS (Bloomberg) — Heavily armed police and security forces were deployed at shopping malls in Paris and London after a video by a terror group in Somalia threatened attacks. Groups of police and soldiers, armed with FAMAS assault ries and wearing bulletproof vests, were patrolling the Le Forum des Halles mall in the heart of Paris Monday. Britain has been at the second-highest terrorist threat level since August, meaning an attack on domestic soil is highly likely. adno=50477342 ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT DEMAND SKYROCKETS PAST 4 MILLION BOTTLES FOR BREAKTHROUGH DOCTOR-FORMULATED VISION SOLUTION...See Why Thousands of Adults AreExperiencing Eagle-Sharp Eyesight, Better NightVision, Crystal Clear Focus!Are you one of the milwho has been in medicinelions taking an eye health more than 35 years and is a "Lutein improvessupplement hoping for leader in the natural health glare tolerance andsharper focus, better night revolution. visual acuity-IF youvision, less eye strain and P take the right amount!"anti-aging protection-but University Study 010Read on to any firealnd Confirms Lutein .

(AP) — A single mother of four from North Carolina is one of three winners in a huge Powerball jackpot drawn earlier this month. At a news conference Monday, 26-year-old Marie Holmes said the best thing about the lucky ticket in the $564 million jackpot is that she’ll be able to provide for her children. They’re all under 7, and one has cerebral palsy. Holmes says she gave her mom $15 to buy ve tickets on her way to church. Weeks later, life is very different. She says security accompanies her everywhere. At the news conference, she was anked by her lawyer and her nancial adviser. She says she will take the lump-sum payment of $127 million before taxes. She plans to give money to church and to travel — she’s never been outside the U.S. Holmes and her family live in a trailer in Shallotte, N.C. — just north of the South Carolina border on the coast.3 evidence boxes in Etan Patz case discoveredNEW YORK (AP) — Three boxes of evidence from the lengthy investigation into the 1979 disappearance of Etan Patz have turned up in a New York police station during the suspect’s murder trial. An attorney for Pedro Hernandez says there are thousands of pages to go through and she may have to seek a mistrial or recall witnesses who have already testied. Hernandez was a stock clerk at a convenience store near where Etan went missing May 25, 1979. Hernandez confessed in 2012; his defense says the admissions are ction. The boxes were discovered late last week at a Harlem station that polices public housing, far from where Etan went missing. They contain missing-person posters of the boy and handwritten notes from the investigation into an earlier suspect who was never charged.Wesleyan: 12 hospitalized for ecstasy overdoseBOSTON (Bloomberg) — Wesleyan University said 12 people were hospitalized after an apparent mass overdose of the ecstasy club drug known as Molly. Ten students and two visitors were transported or went to area hospitals on Sunday with overdose symptoms, Wesleyan President Michael Roth said in a statement. Four in Middlesex Hospital were scheduled to be released Monday, while four others were at Hartford Hospital. Two of the Hartford patients are in critical condition, according to police in Middletown, Conn., where the school is based. “One mistake can change your life forever,” Roth said in a message to students. “Please, please stay away from illegal substances the use of which can put you in extreme danger.” Molly, a pure form of ecstasy, is a psychoactive drug that produces euphoria, emotional warmth and sensory distortion, making it popular in nightclubs.Tanker truck with 9K gallons of fuel crashesPENNSAUKEN, N.J. (AP) — A tanker truck carrying nearly 9,000 gallons of fuel caught re Monday on a major highway in southern New Jersey, spewing thick, black smoke into the sky. Authorities said the driver managed to get out of the vehicle. He and a reghter were both admitted to a hospital with undisclosed injuries. Ofcials said both were in stable condition. The re broke out shortly after 11 a.m., when the truck over turned on the Route 90 on-ramp to Route 130 in Pennsauken, authorities said. It wasn’t clear what caused the truck to overturn. Fireghters began dousing the truck with foam around noon. The blaze appeared to be out 10 minutes later but then reignited. Fireghters had it mostly under control again by 12:20 p.m. The smoke could be seen 5 miles away, in downtown Philadelphia.Houston surgeons separate conjoined twin girlsHOUSTON (AP) — Doctors were optimistic 10-month-old conjoined twin girls will survive the surgery that has separated them. It took 26 hours last week to separate the girls, Knatalyne Hope Mata and Adeline Faith, who shared a chest wall, lungs, a part of their heart lining, diaphragm, liver, colon, intestines and pelvic area, according to lead surgeon Dr. Darrell Cass. The sur gery, which took place at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, had been planned since before they were born last April. “The surgery was not without its challenges, with the girls sharing several organ systems, but we’re very pleased with how they’re doing,” Cass told the Houston Chronicle. “We’re very optimistic they can both have a really great outcome.” The girls were in stable but critical condition, will be on ventilators for the next week and are expected to be in intensive care for a couple of months, then have more surgery later.Homeland Security bill at impasseWASHINGTON (AP) — Days away from a Homeland Security Department shutdown, Senate Republicans sought a way out Monday by breaking contested immigration measures off the agency’s funding bill and offering them for a stand-alone vote. It was not clear whether the gambit by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would succeed ahead of Friday’s midnight deadline to fund the department or see it shut down. It was far from certain whether it would win any Democratic support, and House conservatives remain firmly opposed to any funding bill for the Homeland Security Department that does not also over turn President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration. But with Senate Democrats united against a House-passed bill that funds the agency while blocking Obama on immigration, McConnell said it was time for another approach. DALLAS (AP) — Freezing rain coated parts of Texas with ice on Monday, leading to hundreds of canceled ights and a delay in the “American Sniper” murder trial. Elsewhere, arctic air and snow in parts of New England and New York made for a cold, dangerous commute. More broadly, temperatures are expected to be 25 to 30 degrees below normal across much of the country, said National Weather Service forecaster Jim Hayes. Here’s what’s happening:Slippery SouthUp to an inch of ice was possible in parts of North Texas, where more than 1,000 ights in and out of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport were canceled Monday. The weather also prompted at least a daylong delay in the trial of the ex-Marine charged in the shooting death of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, whose memoir, “American Sniper,” was the basis for the Oscarnominated movie. The National Weather Service canceled a winter storm warning for North Texas but said the moisture already on roads was expected to refreeze by early Tuesday, complicating the morning commute for a second day. Forecasters also issued a winter storm watch for much of North Texas for Tuesday night and Wednesday as another storm was expected to move through the area, bringing up to 3 inches of snow. A freezing rain advisory was also in effect for the Southeast Texas Piney Woods through Tuesday morning, and winter weather advisories have been posted for Central Texas and parts of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.Chill in the airWind chills are forecast to dive below zero in northern parts of the U.S. starting Monday afternoon. The weather service says the wind chill in Bennington, Vt., could drop to 17 below zero, while Lake Placid, N.Y., could see minus 30. In Michigan, actual temperatures dipped to 10 degrees below zero in Saginaw, Bay City and Midland, breaking the area’s record of minus 2. Meanwhile, the Great Lakes are going the way of Niagara Falls: They’re freezing over. Lake Erie is nearly totally frozen, and Lakes Huron and Superior are nearly 80 percent frozen, the New York Daily News reports.All aboardBoston’s transit agency is slowly returning to normal after a series of crippling snowstorms and low temperatures. Most subway and trolley branches had service restored Sunday just in time for the Monday morning commute and buses were running on a regular weekday schedule, though riders may see delays. Commuter rail passengers also were told to expect delays and cancellations.Winter dangersA man was killed Sunday when he fell through a snow-covered skylight in Canton, Mass. A man and a woman were found dead in the snow outside their rural western Pennsylvania home Sunday afternoon, but their causes of death weren’t immediately clear. And in Texas, a 31-year-old Amarillo man died Sunday when he lost control of his car on icy Interstate 27. About 60 people had to be evacuated from an apartment complex in Hooksett, N.H., after the roof partially collapsed under the weight of snow.

In 1938, the first nylon bristle toothbrush, manufactured by DuPont under the name “Dr. West’s Miracle Toothbrush,” went on sale. In 1946, Argentinian men went to the polls to elect Juan D. Peron their president. In 1955, the Cole Porter musical “Silk Stockings” opened at the Imperial Theater on Broadway. In 1988, in a ruling that expanded legal protections for parody and satire, the Supreme Court unanimously overturned a $150,000 award that the Rev. Jerry Falwell had won against Hustler magazine and publisher Larry Flynt. In 1990, magazine publisher Malcolm Forbes died in Far Hills, N.J., at age 70. Fifties balladeer Johnnie Ray died in Los Angeles at age 63. Ten years ago: Pope John Paul II underwent an operation to insert a tube in his throat to relieve breathing problems, hours after being rushed to the hospital for the second time in a month with flu-like symptoms.

Thought for Today: “The house of every one is to him as his castle and fortress, as well for his defence against injury and violence as for his repose.” — Sir Edward Coke, English jurist (1552-1634). court could still nd the blind trust law unconstitutional in the future, saying it “may likely be incompatible” with the constitution. In Monday’s ruling, the court concluded that because Scott stopped using the blind trust briey last year, lawyers for Jim Apthorp, who led the lawsuit, “wholly failed to allege a bona de, actual, present practical need for a declaration” that the blind trust law is unconstitutional. In the suit led last summer, Apthorp contended that letting politicians use a blind trust violates a 1976 constitutional amendment pushed by Askew that requires full nancial disclosure. Apthorp at the time said the lawsuit wasn’t aimed at Scott, but the Republican governor was the only public ofcial who was using a blind trust. During his rst-ever run for public ofce in 2010, Scott, a multi-millionaire businessman, released three years of tax returns and a lengthy list of all his business holdings. But shortly after he took ofce, he received permission from the state’s ethics commission to set up a blind trust to remove direct control over his nances and avoid conicts. The trust is managed by a company that includes a longtime associate of Scott who managed his portfolio before he became governor. Florida legislators in 2013 then passed a law that authorized blind trusts. Because of the lawsuit, Scott last year briey dissolved the trust and released detailed information about his individual holdings right before qualifying for re-election. Last year’s ling also showed certain assets of Scott’s — such as his vacation home in Montana — that had not been disclosed previously. Apthorp, in a statement, said he was considering his options, including ling an appeal to the state Supreme Court or asking the entire appeals court to review the ruling. He maintained that the underlying lawsuit addresses a “critical constitutional issue” and that he was “heartened” by the concurring opinion from Thomas.SCOTTFROM PAGE 1 aerial bombing campaign in Iraq is going well, and he expressed condence that the U.S. military is well suited to carrying out a longer-term effort to train and equip an opposition rebel force in Syria. He specied two areas for needed improvement in the overall strategy: more creative use of social media to counter ISIL’s messaging campaign, and getting more out of some coalition member countries, which he did not name. Carter was returning to Washington on Tuesday to meet with President Barack Obama. The Army general commanding the war effort in Iraq and Syria, meanwhile, told reporters that the Islamic State ghters are “halted, on the defensive” in Iraq and facing a new counter-attack by Iraqi forces in Anbar province to retake a town the militants seized earlier this month. Lt. Gen. James L. Terry said he is condent the Iraqi push, dubbed “Lion’s Revenge,” will succeed in retaking the town of al-Baghdadi. But Terry said of the Islamic State group, “No doubt, they’re adaptive.” Carter said he assembled U.S. generals, diplomats and intelligence ofcials not just to hear the latest on battleeld progress but also to better understand the intellectual underpinnings of Obama’s counter-IS strategy, including the ways military force is supposed to combine with political and economic measures to reverse the Islamic State’s gains and eventually defeat it. During a brief picturetaking session as the talks began, Carter said he needs to better understand what he called the “very complicated” problem of an Islamic extremist group “spreading echoes and reections around the world.” He added, “It is a problem that has an important military dimension, but it’s not a purely military problem — it’s a politico-military problem.” Seated around a large T-shaped table were about 25 senior ofcials, including Gen. Lloyd Austin, head of the military’s Central Command; presidential envoys John Allen and Brett McGurk; the commanders of U.S. forces in Europe and Africa, and U.S. ambassadors summoned from Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other Arab nations with a stake in the outcome of the ght against the Islamic State. “This is Team America,” he said. The gathering was a highly unusual way for a Pentagon chief to begin his tenure. Aides said participants were told in advance to leave their usual talking points home and be prepared for a freewheeling discussion. Among other key par ticipants were Army Gen. Joseph L. Votel, commander of U.S. Special Operations Command, and Lt. Gen. Michael Nagata, head of the U.S. program to train and equip a moderate rebel force in Syria. Several of Carter’s top Pentagon aides also attended. In remarks to troops at Camp Arifjan before the conference began, Carter said the key to success against IS is ensuring that the countries threatened by the group can preserve the gains achieved by the U.S.-led military campaign.COUNCILFROM PAGE 1 Peanut allergies have doubled over the last decade and now affect more than 2 percent of kids in the United States and growing numbers of them in Africa, Asia and elsewhere. Peanuts are the leading cause of food allergy-related severe reactions and deaths. Unlike many other allergies, this one is not outgrown with age. Food allergies often are inherited, but research suggests they also can develop after birth and that age of exposure may affect whether they do. Researchers at King’s College London started this study after noticing far higher rates of peanut allergies among Jewish children in London who were not given peanut-based foods in infancy compared to others in Israel who were. The study involved more than 600 children ages 4 months to 11 months old in England. All were thought to be at risk for peanut allergy because they were allergic to eggs or had eczema, a skin condition that’s a frequent allergy symptom. All had been given skinprick tests to make sure they were not already allergic to peanuts. They were put into two groups — 530 who did not show signs of peanut allergy and 98 others with mild-to-moderate reactions, suggesting an allergy might be developing. Half of each group was assigned to avoid peanuts and the other half was told to consume them each week, usually as peanut butter or a snack called Bamba, a peanutavored puff. The results at 5 years of age: Among children with no sign of allergy on the skin test: Only 2 percent of peanut eaters developed a peanut allergy versus 14 percent of abstainers. Among children with some reaction to peanuts on the skin test: Only 11 percent of peanut eaters developed an allergy versus 35 percent of abstainers. Hospitalizations and serious reactions were about the same in all groups. Questions remain: How much peanut protein do infants need to consume, how often and for how long, to avoid allergy? If a child stops eating peanuts for a while, will an allergy develop? Would the same approach work for other foods such as milk, eggs and tree nuts? “These questions must be addressed, but we believe that because the results of this trial are so compelling, and the problem of the increasing prevalence of peanut allergy so alarming, new guidelines should be forthcoming very soon,” Gruchalla and Dr. Hugh Sampson of Mount Sinai Hospital in New York write in the medical journal. American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines used to recommend against giving children foods with peanuts before age 3, but that advice was dropped in 2008 because there was no evidence it was preventing allergies. Now, most parents introduce peanut-based foods as is appropriate for the child’s age, like other solid foods. Gruchalla thinks that babies with some signs of a peanut allergy risk, such as parents who are allergic, should have a skin test between 4 and 8 months of age. If it’s negative, they should be started on peanut products as the babies in this study were. If they show some sensitivity to peanuts, a “food challenge” monitored by a doctor experienced at this should be tried.PEANUTFROM PAGE 1 YARMOUTH, Maine (AP) — A beloved K-9 suffering from seizures and arthritis received a nal salute and a police escort, with lights ashing, to the Maine vet clinic where he was euthanized. Dozens of ofcers and reghters turned out this month to pay their respects to Sultan, a 13-year-old German shepherd who sniffed out drugs and bad guys with the Yarmouth Police Department. Ofcers gave a last pat or scratch to the dog. Then they provided an escort for Sultan’s nal trip to a veterinary clinic. South Portland Canine Ofcer Shane Stephenson said in a telephone interview Monday that he took Sultan into his home as a pet when the dog retired from police work at age 10. He said the dog was friendly and lovable to the point of letting Stephenson’s baby boy tug on his tail and ears. “But when it came down to business, he was one of the best, too,” the ofcer said. The touching police tribute for the geriatric K-9 on Feb. 13 was reported by the Portland Press Herald. Sultan was the rst police dog with the Yarmouth Police Department; he was in great demand across southern Maine during his years with the department. He and former Yarmouth Ofcer Mike Vogel, who now works in Florida, answered more than 1,000 calls, captur ing dozens of suspects and seizing untold amounts of cash and more than 100 pounds of narcotics, the newspaper said. Vogel said Sultan was also popular with schoolchildren. “He was a gentle giant,” he said in a telephone interview. Vogel, who was unable to return to Maine for the tribute, said he and Stephenson are going to have a private ceremony for their families at a later date. “There’s a lot of attachment with these police dogs. They’re with us 24/7,” he said. Justin Cooley, a K-9 handler with the Maine State Police, said handlers and their K-9s have an indescribable bond. “These are dogs that we take home with us; they get to know our family. They’re with us 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You go through a lot of things with them, and you just dread this day,” Cooley said.Beloved K-9 gets final salute and police escort AP PHOTOIn this Feb. 13 photo, Canine Ocer Shane Stephenson of the South Portland Police Department spends a moment with Sultan, a retired police dog that became his pet, before he carried the dog into the Yarmouth Veterinary Center where he was euthanized in Yarmouth, Maine. (LA Times) — Moms and dads — grab a sponge and step away from the dishwasher. A new study suggests that hand-washing dishes (and leaving some microbes on a fork, bowl or plate in the process) may help reduce the risk of allergy development in young children. In a paper published Monday in the journal Pediatrics, Swedish researchers report that kids who grew up in households where dishes are hand-washed as opposed to sterilized in a dishwasher were less likely to report suffering from eczema, asthma or hay fever. They also found that eating fermented foods (such as sauerkraut or pickles) and eating eggs and milk purchased directly from a farm lowered a child’s risk of developing allergies. The findings are in line with what is called the hygiene hypothesis, which suggests that excessive cleanliness is responsible for a growing allergy epidemic. The idea is that exposure to germs in early childhood is necessary to stimulate the immune system and reduce the risk of allergy development. The theory has been borne out in several different studies.Study: Washing dishes may prevent allergies aaaaaQi1,Y. .

The Sun /Tuesday, February 24, 2015 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 5 STATE NEWS | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATENew nursing homes get backing from regulatorsTALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) — After more than a decadelong moratorium on adding nursing-home beds, state regulators said Monday they have approved proposals for 2,600 beds in 25 counties. The approvals, through what is known as the “cer ticate of need” process, came after lawmakers last year approved a measure to lift the moratorium. Lawmakers began the moratorium in 2001, at least in part, to help lead to more care being provided in communities instead of in nursing homes. “This expansion of Florida’s long-term care infrastructure will not only provide more access to care, but will also bolster Florida’s economy for the next few years,’’ Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Liz Dudek said in a prepared statement. “In addition to the hundreds of millions of dollars that will be spent on construction projects, these beds will result in hundreds of new jobs for administrative staff and caregivers.” New nursing homes are expected to be scattered across the state, though Central Florida appears likely to see some of the most construction. For example, Polk County would get two new nursing homes totaling 240 beds, Lake County would get two new nursing homes totaling 180 beds, Orange County would get a nursing home with 180 beds, Brevard County would get a nursing home with 131 beds and Osceola County would get a nursing home with 120 beds, according to a listing from the agency.Body in submerged car is missing womanBRANDON (AP) — Authorities say they’ve identied a body found in a car pulled from a Tampa Bay area lake as a woman who’s been missing for over a week. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Ofce says the body recovered Sunday afternoon from Mango Lake is 33-yearold Apryl Foster of Brandon. An autopsy is pending. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Debbie Carter said in a news release Monday that Foster was identied through ngerprints. Deputies say they don’t suspect foul play. Authorities recovered the car after boaters reported striking an obstruction in the water. Surveillance footage from a boat ramp showed Foster’s car drive into the water, less than half a mile from her home. Foster was last seen Feb. 13 in Tampa, where she visited two bars and sang karaoke after work.Over 100 report bright lights as meteor falls over FloridaJACKSONVILLE (AP) — Over 100 people reported seeing bright lights in the sky and hearing a window-rattling boom as a meteor fell over northeast Florida. The American Meteor Society says the meteor was traveling Saturday night from the southwest to the northeast before ending its ight about 30 miles west of Jacksonville. A cluster of reports about a sonic boom came from around Lake City. Reports about the bright lights came from as far north as Augusta, Ga. American Meteor Society volunteer Robert Lunsford tells WJXT-TV that there’s a good chance that some fragments from the meteor may have reached the ground. He says the reports about the loud boom indicate that the meteor “did survive down to the lower atmosphere.”UF wants to set rules for student, faculty relationshipsGAINESVILLE (AP) — The University of Florida’s new president says it’s time to clarify rules regarding romantic relationships between students and faculty. Harvard recently became the latest school to ban such relationships, joining other schools such as Yale and Stanford. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Education is investigating 90 schools about claims of sexual harassment. Florida isn’t one of the schools being investigated by federal ofcials. But President Kent Fuchs tells WCBJ-TV that he wants to set “very clear guidelines for students and faculty” about romantic relationships. Fuchs says he plans to meet with the faculty senate, college deans and department chairs to begin discussing those guidelines.Wisconsin man critically injured in marijuana disputeSUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) — Authorities say a northern Wisconsin man is in critical condition after being shot in the head during a dispute over marijuana in Florida. The Martin County (Florida) Sheriff’s Ofce says 27-year-old Patrick Nelson of Superior also has a broken neck and other broken bones. Nelson allegedly stole about $1,000 worth of marijuana from a mobile home in Jensen Beach, Fla., last Tuesday night. The sheriff’s ofce says two residents confronted Nelson at the condo where he was staying after they realized the marijuana was gone and shot Nelson in the head following a struggle. Twenty-ve-year-old Ryan Lounders and 27-year-old Donald Smith were arrested and charged with felony attempted murder and burglary with battery or assault while armed. Court records don’t list an attorney for the men.Gainesville votes to move toward synthetic drug banGAINESVILLE (AP) — Gainesville wants to rid the city of synthetic drugs like “spice” and bath salts after dozens of people were hospitalized last year after ingesting the substances. The Gainesville City Commission has approved an ordinance that would prohibit the possession of the drugs with intent to sell and bar the displays advertising their sale and manufacture. A second vote is required for its passage. The Gainesville Sun reports that more than 30 people were hospitalized in Gainesville with problems such as seizures and vomiting after they smoked spice, which is synthetic marijuana. Under the ordinance, violators would face a ne and a possible lien on their property. Gainesville police say the ordinance empowers the city to go after drugs based on their packaging, not just their chemical makeup.Loan forgiveness proposed for ‘STEM’ teachersTALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) — With the state trying to boost emphasis on science, technology, engineering and math, two Democratic lawmakers have proposed bills that would create a loan-for giveness program for so-called “STEM” teachers. Sen. Chris Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, led a bill (SB 1156) on Monday that would allow the state to make loan payments up to $16,000 for people who teach STEM courses for eight years at public schools. The money could go toward repaying loans for educational costs such as tuition and books. Rep. Ed Narain, D-Tampa, led a similar bill (HB 631) earlier this month.Florida flight schools see interest jumpFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) — Flight schools in South Florida are reporting a spike in interest and applications. The region is a top ight training hub because of its weather. A looming pilot shortage is being credited as a reason for increased ight training enrollment. Some 35,000 pilots are expected to retire in the next six years. The Sun Sentinel reports that staffers at ight schools say the biggest stumbling block for potential students is the high price of instruction.Last-ditch protests in fight over boy’s circumcisionWEST PALM BEACH (AP) — An estranged Florida couple’s yearslong ght over whether to circumcise their son appeared near an end Monday with the father attempting to schedule the procedure amid last-minute legal maneuvers and promises of protests. In a court document, Dennis Nebus, the father of the 4-year-old boy, said he was attempting to arrange the surgery for Tuesday. That prompted a new round of lings by the mother, Heather Hironimus, and promises of demonstrations by anti-circumcision activists, who have made the case a rallying cry against a practice they say is barbaric. Hironimus and Nebus had a six-month relationship that resulted in the birth of a boy named Chase. Nebus sued to prove his paternity and get partial custody of the boy and the couple whittled out a parenting plan in which both agreed to the child’s circumcision. When it came time to schedule the procedure, though, the mother resisted, saying she had researched the subject further and no longer wanted it done. The matter wound its way through circuit court, which ruled in Nebus’ favor, then to a state appeals court, which upheld the lower court’s ruling. The mother led an emergency motion Wednesday seeking to bar the circumcision from proceeding. A judge denied it, but ordered a hearing via phone with both parents. Nebus led an emergency motion Friday saying Hironimus still refuses to give written consent to the circumcision, which doctors may require. adno=50477431 Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement Wearing Adult Diapersor Padded Underwearis No Longer NecessaryAccording to Dr. Seipel, Leaking, Squirming,Squeezing, and Embarassing Odors...EvenAccidents Can Now be a Thing of the Past!NEW YORK, NEW YORK If lifeisn't hard enough, now you have toworry about making it to the bathroomin time.

It seems very steady, and the income has also been very steady over the past ve years. It pays 6.25 cents monthly, which is a 5.4 percent tax-free yield, and that’s very attractive. How can it get this kind of tax-free yield when the best tax-free bonds my broker can nd yield only 3 percent? I have $65,000 to invest from an annuity I owned for 10 years and nally cashed out at a loss last month. — PL, Kankakee, Ill. Dear PL: Municipal accounting and municipal balance sheets are a foreign language to most investors. So investing in the municipal high-yield junk-bond market is like wearing stilts to walk safely across a eld of land mines. And considering allegations that Standard & Poor’s has, for a fee, ignored accounting statement deciencies and assigned high ratings to low-quality bonds, reputable brokerages prefer to limit their sales forces’ access to these investments. BlackRock MuniAssets Fund (MUA-$13.46) can earn that high of a yield for two reasons: 1) It only purchases high-yielding junk bonds, with coupons in excess of 5 percent, most of which are not rated by Moody’s Investors Service or S&P. 2) The use of leverage, which is explained below. Like most closed-end bond funds, MUA uses leverage to increase its yield. MUA’s portfolio manager borrows shortterm funds at low interest rates to purchase longterm municipal bonds at higher interest rates, and this process is called leverage. For illustrative purposes, here’s how it works. Assume MUA has $100 million invested in a portfolio of 20 municipal bonds producing an average yield of 5 percent, or $5 million of tax-free interest a year. The portfolio manager, with MUA’s $100 million portfolio as security, borrows $12 million (12 percent of the portfolio’s value) from a bank at 2 percent and uses this loan to buy $12 million of additional municipal bonds paying 5 percent. MUA now owns a portfolio valued at $112 million in which it has invested only $100 million. And this leverage, if used wisely, can smartly increase the portfolio’s yield. MUA’s short-term $12 million borrowing will cost it (2 percent times $12 million) $240,000 in interest. But the $12 million in newly purchased municipal bonds will earn MUA an additional 5 percent, or $600,000 of interest. So when collecting $600,000 of extra interest income from the new municipal bonds and subtracting the $240,000 of interest cost, MUA’s portfolio will net an extra $360,000 of interest income. This extra $360,000 of interest income will be added to the $5 million of interest that MUA’s portfolio will earn, so the total interest earned by MUA will increase from $5 million to $5.36 million. And a tax-free income of $5.36 million on an investment of $100 million equals a dividend yield of 5.36 percent. MUA’s conservative management borrowed only 12 percent of its portfolio, whereas most other leveraged closed-end municipal bond funds borrow at least 30 percent of their portfolios’ values. And other funds that use higher leverage also have much higher current returns. Pioneer Municipal High Income Advantage Trust (MAV-$15.34), yielding 7.5 percent, Nuveen Municipal High Income Opportunity Fund (NMZ-$13.46), yielding 6.9 percent, MFS High Income Municipal Trust (CXE-$4.84), yielding 6.6 percent, and Pimco Municipal Income Fund III (PMX-$11.22), yielding 6.9 percent, are current examples. Be mindful that higher leverage equals higher risks. MUA has been sending dividends to shareholders since October 1994, when the monthly dividend was 7.3 cents. MUA has paid 6.25 cents every month since March 2010, and in that time frame, the share price has ranged from a low of $10.96 to a high of $14.61. The fear today is that when short-term interest rates rise, MUA’s interest costs on its shortterm borrowing will also rise to 3 or 4 percent or maybe 5 percent. And every increase in borrowing rates will increase MUA’s portfolio loan costs, reduce investors’ income and very likely cause its share value to decline. Although, MUA’s share price should not decline so much as those of NMZ, CXE, PMX and MAV, because their short-term portfolio loans are all in excess of 32 percent.

MUA and leverage Malcolm Berko NEW YORK (AP) — The slump in crude oil prices and disappointing U.S. home sales data helped nudge stocks mostly lower on Monday, pulling the market back from an all-time high reached last week. The Dow Jones industrial average and Standard & Poor’s 500 index spent much of the day hovering slightly below their most-recent highs. But the Nasdaq composite mounted a late-afternoon comeback that extended its recent win streak for the ninth day in a row. Oil drilling companies and homebuilders notched broad declines, while traders bid up shares in utilities stocks. Investors were looking ahead to the start of a two-day round of Congressional testimony by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen. The remarks could provide insight into when the central bank will begin raising its key interest rate from near zero. “The markets are in a holding pattern,” said Erik Davidson, chief investment ofcer of Wells Fargo Private Bank. “We’ll have some very interesting information coming up from Janet Yellen tomorrow and Wednesday, so the markets are looking at that very closely.” The Dow ended down 23.60 points, or 0.1 percent, to 18,116.84. The S&P 500 fell 0.64 points, or 0.03 percent, to 2,109.66. The Nasdaq gained 5.01 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,960.97. The index, which has yet to reclaim its record high from the dot-com era, is now within 87 points of that March 2000 peak. The three stock indexes are up for the year. Stocks started off the day basically at as investors weighed developments in Greece and falling oil prices. Greece’s new government and its creditors reached an agreement over the weekend that staved off the threat of a Greek bankruptcy and an exit from the euro. Athens was expected to send creditors a list of reforms tied to the fourmonth bailout pact early Tuesday. The price of oil fell for the fourth day in a row as the return of a Libyan oil eld raised expectations for more oil supply. Benchmark U.S. crude fell $1.36 to close at $49.45 a barrel in New York.Stocks edge mostly lower | NATIONUS home sales plunge 4.9 percent in JanuaryWASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. home sales hit a snow drift in January, plunging to the slowest pace in nine months. The National Association of Realtors says sales of existing homes tumbled 4.9 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.82 million. That brings sales down to their lowest level since April 2014. Relatively low mortgage rates and steady job growth have yet to spur more activity from buyers and sellers, raising the possibility of either a spring sales rush or a second straight year of numbness in the real estate market. Few properties are being listed for sale, would-be buyers are holding off on pur chases and snowstorms are cutting into trafc at open houses. Median home prices increased 6.2 percent over the past 12 months to $199,600.Target lowers free shipping minimum MINNEAPOLIS (Star Tribune) — Target Corp. is raising the online shopping stakes with the announcement Monday that it is lowering its free shipping threshold on online orders to $25 from $50. In doing so, the Minneapolis-based retailer now offers a more competitive free shipping offer than rivals Walmart, which has a $50 minimum to qualify for free shipping; Amazon, which has a $35 minimum; and Best Buy, which has a $35 minimum. Target’s move comes a couple of months after it ended its bold holiday promotion of free shipping on any size order. Target executives have said that offer helped lead to a 40 percent increase in digital sales in the fourth quarter. And they have noted that digital sales have continued to accelerate even after that deal ended. “We saw an enthusiastic response to our free shipping offer over the holidays,” Jason Goldberger, president of Target.com and mobile, said in a statement. i^ /r./__rO O

Ofcials from some of the six-power talks with Iran said details still needed to be agreed on, with U.S. and Iranian negotiators meeting Monday for the third straight day ahead of an end-of-March deadline for a framework agreement. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry joined the negotiations after arriving Sunday. A breakthrough was not expected before Kerry returns to Washington later Monday. Still, Western ofcials familiar with the talks cited long-awaited progress on some elements that would have to go into a comprehensive deal. They described the discussions as a moving target, however, meaning changes in any one area would have repercussions for other parts of the negotiation. The idea would be to reward Iran for good behavior over the last years of any agreement, gradually lifting constraints on its uranium enrichment program and slowly easing economic sanctions. Iran says it does not want nuclear arms and needs enrichment only for energy, medical and scientic purposes, but the U.S. fears Tehran could re-engineer the program to another potential use — producing the ssile core of a nuclear weapon. The U.S. initially sought restrictions lasting for up to 20 years; Iran had pushed for less than a de cade. The prospective deal appears to be somewhere in the middle. One variation being discussed would place at least a 10-year regime of strict controls on Iran’s uranium enrichment program. If Iran complies, the restrictions would be gradually lifted over the last ve years of such an agreement. Iran could be allowed to operate signicantly more centrifuges than the U.S. administration rst demanded, though at lower capacity than they currently run. Several ofcials spoke of 6,500 centrifuges as a potential point of compromise, with the U.S. trying to restrict them to Iran’s mainstay IR-1 model instead of more advanced machines. It would also be forced to ship out most of the enriched uranium it produces or change it to a form that is difcult to reconvert for weapons use. It takes about 1 ton of low-enriched uranium to process into a nuclear weapon, and ofcials said that Tehran could be restricted to an enriched stockpile of no more than about 700 pounds.US-Iran nuclear deal taking shape AP PHOTOU.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, center, returns to his hotel after walking on the bank of Lake Geneva, following a bilateral meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif for a new round of nuclear talks in Geneva, Switzerland, Monday. THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Intelligence and law enforcement agencies across the European Union have to cooperate better to ght against the threat of terrorism, the head of EU police organization Europol said Monday. Speaking at a meeting with foreign journalists in the Netherlands, Europol Director Rob Wainwright said his organization can help track extremists, their arms and cash across borders as the continent ramps up its counterterror operations in the aftermath of the deadly attacks this year in Paris and Copenhagen. Europol has built up a database of about 3,000 people who traveled to ght in Syria and Iraq — though Wainwright says the number is likely much higher. By cross-referencing names on the database with other information owing into Europol’s purpose-built headquar ters in The Hague, “we begin to see patterns emerging — connections ... between different countries in ways the investigators were not aware of in the rst place,” Wainwright said. He added: “We can begin to see what the strategic dimensions of the problem — who ... is controlling the recruitment of these people, who’s nancing them, who’s managing their travel movements to and from Syria and Iraq.” EU leaders agreed earlier this month to a raft of counterterrorism measures aimed at protecting their countries against terror, signaling a key role for Europol and its overarching vision of the threat. The Hague-based organization has for years helped coordinate the ght against cross-border crime including money laundering, cybercrime and arms trafcking — all areas identied by EU leaders as key battlegrounds in the ght against terrorism. “All of these are possible avenues for us to identify and apprehend these suspects before they carry out their attacks,” Wainwright said. “But what is central to this is more effective, more systematic cross-border cooperation across Europe.”Europol chief: Cooperation needed to fight terror | WORLDHeavy clashes between Kurds and ISIS in SyriaBEIRUT (AP) — Heavy clashes raged in northeastern Syria on Monday as Kurdish ghters and Islamic State militants battled for control of a string of villages near the Iraqi and Turkish borders. The Kurds have long been one of the most effective foes of the Islamic State group, a reputation they burnished in recent months by repelling a monthslong IS assault against the town of Kobani on the Turkish frontier. The U.S.-led coalition carried out hundreds of airstrikes that helped the Kurds break the IS siege in January. Monday’s ghting focused in Hassakeh province in the extreme northeast of Syria, where IS militants took at least one village near the small town of Tal Tamr, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees activist collective said.Toll up to at least 70 in Bangladesh ferry disasterDHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) — The death toll from a weekend ferry disaster in central Bangladesh rose to 70 on Monday, as divers nished their search after the vessel was lifted to the surface and towed to shore. A local government administrator, Rasheda Ferdousi, said the area of the river around the accident site was still being monitored because some passengers were still missing. He did not give an exact number. “Our people are using boats to survey the river for any dead bodies. But here at the scene we are calling off the search as there are no more bodies inside the ferry,” Ferdousi said. Up to 140 passengers were thought to be on the ferry when it capsized Sunday afternoon after being hit by a cargo vessel in the Padma River, about 25 miles northwest of Dhaka. The river is one of Bangladesh’s largest.Earthquake in central Spain shakes buildings MADRID (AP) — A magnitude-5.0 earthquake in a remote part of central Spain has shaken buildings in Madrid, briey sending some panicked ofce workers into the streets. The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake’s epicenter was seven kilometers (4.3 miles) from the town of Ossa de Montiel, about a twohour drive south of the Spanish capital. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries following the earthquake late Monday afternoon.Afghan official says talks with Taliban in ‘near future’KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Senior Afghan leader Abdullah Abdullah says his government will begin peace talks with the Taliban “in the near future.” Speaking to Cabinet members Monday, Abdullah said Pakistani ofcials had told Taliban leaders to begin peace talks with the Afghan government.

MLB: Tampa Bay Back in uniformPORT CHARLOTTE — Alex Cobb and Chris Archer have heard the skepticism and read the expert opinions. They know people have a lot of questions about the Tampa Bay Rays, and they know a lot of pundits don’t have high expectations for them. They’re just not buying it. Now that spring training workouts are ofcially underway, Cobb and Archer are ready to stop talking about all the offseason change and show what kind of talent the Rays still have. “We’re going to have speed, we’re going to have some power in our lineup, we’re obviously going to play great defense and we’re going to pitch well,” Archer said prior to the team’s rst ofcial workout of the spring. “So to me, we’re going to be one of the most exciting teams to watch in the American League.” If the Rays are going to live up to the expectations their young righthander has set for them, it’s likely going to start with him, Cobb and the rest of the rotation.

After two scoreless innings, the Mantas broke through when Summer Jones and Kacyn Shirley singled and Brooke Clemens reached on a fielder’s choice to load the bases with one out. An infield error, a walk and a two-run single by Rayne Wells produced a 4-0 lead. The Bobcats (0-7) got three runs back in the top of the fourth. Carolyn Syzenenko’s basesclearing double into the gap in leftcenter was the key hit. However, the Mantas wasted no time counterattacking. Their three-run rally in the bottom of the fourth completed the scoring. Logan Johnson and Jones started the inning with back-toback doubles. One out later, Brooke Kvaternick delivered a two-run single. “We had some timely hits which was PREP SOFTBALL: Lemon Bay 7, North Port 3 UP NEXTLemon Bay: at Charlotte, Thursday, 7 p.m. North Port: at Port Charlotte, Wednesday, 7 p.m.MANTAS | 4 Stakes high as teams try to judge characterBy EDDIE PELLSASSOCIATED PRESSINDIANAPOLIS — The questions were similar, and Dorial GreenBeckham had virtually the same response for each one. “I’m disappointed in myself for all those things I did at Missouri,” said the wide receiver, who spent last season on the sideline in large part because of legal troubles, including allegations that he pushed a woman down a ight of stairs. Green-Beckham repeated some version of that nine times during the 10 minutes he spent with reporters at the NFL scouting combine last week. He could have said it 100 times, and it wouldn’t have answered — or ended — the questions. Because of the domestic violence scandals involving Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and others that came to light last season, the scrutiny for the receiver with rst-round talent but all those character questions is only beginning. Now more than ever, teams are using the combine not so much to nd out what sort of player they’re getting — they can watch the tapes for that — as what kind of person they’re getting. The 15-minute interviews the teams get with the players, along with tests that evaluate their psychological prole, have never been more important. “It changes with the times,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said of the vetting process. “We are a microcosm of society. We have our problems just like everyone else, and hopefully we will be able to help educate our people about what is not acceptable.” Placing the issue into even sharper focus is the fact that arguably the most talented player in the upcoming draft, quarterback Jameis Winston, has been a xture in police blotters during an NFL: CombineSTAKES | 4 COLLEGE BASEBALL: SchedulingWinter heats up schedule-shift ideas The college baseball season would run from April to August instead of the traditional February to June under an ambitious plan by West Virginia coach Randy Mazey. Mazey has been working on the idea for years, but it has drawn increased attention because of the cold wave that has caused scheduling havoc the rst two weeks of the season even for teams in the South. “It’s a screaming reminder of, ‘What the heck are we doing playing right now?’” Mazey said Monday from Morgantown, where the temperature was in single digits and 4 inches of snow covered the Mountaineers’ new eld. Such a schedule shift would signicantly impact early season tournaments played in warm weather areas, such as the Snowbird Baseball Classic, which is played in Port Charlotte and attracts teams because of Florida’s favorable weather in February and March. For many teams participating in the Snowbird Classic, which draws Division I and Division III teams, the trip to Florida is the rst time they have practiced or played outside.

GARAGESALELISTINGSALW AY SI NTHECLASSIFIEDS Cody Adkinson’s third Edison Festival of Lights 5K effort turned out to be his best. The Florida Gulf Coast University cross country runner placed seventh among 1,206 in Saturday’s race in Fort Myers, nishing in 15 minutes, 41 seconds. “I performed really well,” said the Port Charlotte High School graduate, who was 12th among 1,342 in 16:24 last year. “I paced well.” FGCU doesn’t have a track and eld team, so cross country team members go to select open and university races or meets throughout the state. The junior said he was third among the Eagles. “It was really packed. I was just trying not to go out too fast,” he said. “After the rst 800 meters, everybody was where they wanted to be.” He said the crowd was inspiring, chanting “FGCU” and “Dunk City” as the Eagles ran by. “I love this race,” said Adkinson, who has two years of cross country eligibility remaining. “There’s so many people cheering you on.” Adkinson missed the 2013 cross country season because of a stress fracture but responded with a strong 2014 season. He had the second-best time — a personal-best 25:58.96 for 8-kilometers — among the participating Eagles at the Greater Louisville Classic, and he posted the team’s second-best nish in the NCAA South Region Championship 10K. He was third among the Eagles in two other meets, including the Atlantic Sun Conference Championship. He has increased his mileage to 55-75 miles a week and continues weight training, yoga and water running in a bid to stay healthy. “So far everything feels ne,” he said. He said the team plans to compete next in the University of South Florida Invitational in March.Share an accomplishment with Barbara Boxleitner at BKLE3@aol.com.Now healthy, Adkinson quickens paceBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT RECREATIONAL SPORTS: RunningFGCU runner is coming off a strong fall running season | COLLEGE BASKETBALL POLLSMEN’S TOP 25 The top 25 teams in The Associated Press’ college basketball poll, with rst-place votes in parentheses, records through Feb. 22, total points based on 25 points for a rst-place vote through one point for a 25th-place vote and last week’s ranking: Record Pts Prv 1.

GAINESVILLE — Florida will be without second-leading scorer Dorian Finney-Smith for the third consecutive game today at Missouri. Coach Billy Donovan said Finney-Smith remains suspended for an undisclosed violation of team rules. Donovan said he will re-evaluate Finney-Smith’s status before Saturday’s home game against Tennessee. Finney-Smith is Florida’s most versatile player. He’s averaging 12.9 points and 5.8 rebounds this season. He missed games against Vanderbilt and LSU, and the Gators (13-14, 6-8 Southeastern Conference) went 1-1 without him. Florida also will be without leading scorer Michael Frazier II for the fth consecutive game because of a high-ankle sprain.Top 25 MenNo. 17 Louisville 52, Georgia Tech 51: Terry Rozier scored 22 points and darted into the lane to hit the go-ahead basket with 20 seconds remaining, helping Louisville rally from a 13-point deficit with less than 10 minutes to go in Atlanta. In the final seconds, Marcus Georges-Hunt tied it at 48 for the Yellow Jackets with a drive to the hoop, but Louisville (22-6, 10-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) took off the other way for Rozier’s basket just seconds later. Georgia Tech (12-16, 3-13) turned it over and had another attempt at a tying basket blocked. StateSavannah State 63, Florida A&M 52: In Savannah, Ga., Terel Hall and Hikeem Champaigne scored 12 points apiece to help Savannah State (7-19, 3-9 Mid-Eastern), which held Florida A&M to 16 field goals on 50 attempts (32 percent).WomenNo 1. UConn 94, Tulane 47: In New Orleans, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis had 21 points and Breanna Stewart added 16 points and 10 rebounds for Connecticut. Morgan Tuck had 16 points and eight rebounds and Moriah Jeerson added 15 points for the Huskies (27-1, 16-0 American Athletic). Courtnie Latham scored 12 points to lead Tulane (20-8, 11-6). No. 2 South Carolina 71, No. 6 Tennessee 66: In Columbia, S.C., Aleighsa Welch had a season-high 19 points and 14 rebounds, Tiffany Mitchell hit two foul shots with 17 seconds left and host South Carolina (26-1, 14-0 SEC) remained perfect in Southeastern Conference play. No. 4 Notre Dame 68, No. 8 Louisville 52: Jewell Loyd scored 20 points, Taya Reimer added 16 and Notre Dame took control with a 16-0 second-half run in South Bend, Ind., to earn its 12th consecutive victory. Notre Dame (26-2, 13-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) remained alone in first-place in league standings, while the Cardinals (23-4, 11-3) fell to third place. No. 5 Maryland 65, Penn State 34: Brionna Jones scored 11 of her 17 points in the decisive first half, and Maryland (25-2, 16-0) earned its 19th consecutive victory, the Terrapins’ longest winning streak since a 21-game run in 1988-89. Mississippi 67, No. 13 Kentucky 59: In Oxford, Miss., Tia Faleru had 16 points and eight rebounds, and Gracie Frizzell hit five 3-pointers to help host Mississippi snap a six-game losing streak against Kentucky. Frizzell finished with 15 points for Mississippi (16-11, 6-8 SEC), which earned its 400th win at Tad Smith Arena. No. 18 Chattanooga 56, Mercer 51: In Macon, Ga., Jasmine Joyner scored 18 points with six rebounds and seven blocked shots for Chattanooga (25-3, 13-0 Southern), which spotted Mercer a 10-2 lead. The Mocs chipped away and trailed by two, 23-21, at the break.

(AP) — Cory Schneider had 38 saves for his third shutout of the season and the New Jersey Devils posted their rst four-game winning streak in two years with a 3-0 decision over fading Arizona on Monday. Scott Gomez tallied on a rst-period breakaway and Mike Cammalleri had breakaway and empty-net goals in the third period for New Jersey which had not won four in a row since early February 2013. The win moved the Devils within eight points of a wild-card spot in their long shot bid to make the playoffs for the rst time in three seasons. It also gave them points in 14 of their last 16 games at the Prudential Center (11-2-3). Mike Smith made 25 saves for the Coyotes, who lost their season-high sixth in a row.

The Belarusian, who won in 2012 and 2013, was forced to withdraw last year due to a foot inflammation. Returning to Doha as a wild card entrant, Azarenka needed 66 minutes to beat the eighth-seeded Kerber. Kerber, who lost to Simona Halep in last year’s final, was blown away in the first set in which Azarenka dropped nine points. Fifth-seeded Leonardo Mayer of Argentina reached the second round of the Argentina Open, defeating Stephane Robert of France 6-0, 6-1.

Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, February 24, 2015 athletically stellar but per sonally challenging three years at Florida State. Sexual assault accusations against him while in college didn’t result in charges, but his past puts him at more risk under the NFL’s new personal-conduct policy, beefed up in the aftermath of the Rice case. The policy, which calls for a six-game suspension after a rst offense, makes clear that a criminal conviction isn’t needed for the league to deter mine players took part in prohibited conduct. The NFL will have its own investigative arm, and the commissioner can use his discretion based, in part, on a player’s previous behavior. “I understand there are some things in college that a lot of people do that they wish they hadn’t later on,” said Lovie Smith, coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who hold the top pick. “I understand there are a lot of things on his record. We take all the information we can possibly get at this point. It’s still early. Right now, we haven’t taken him off our list.” Winston’s travails have been widely documented, and with the growth of the Internet over the past decade, a few keystrokes are all it takes to discover a player’s police record. The teams work with law enforcement and hire people to do detective work — talking to friends, family, high school coaches and others to uncover details about a player’s off-the-eld behavior. “I know I made mistakes and I know I have a past, but right now it’s about me moving forward and earning the trust of all these 32 teams out there,” Winston said. Can he really move forward? The teams also hire psychologists to analyze tests that help build a psychological prole of all their prospective draft picks. Among those who design the psychological tests are Dr. Mike Sanders of Human Resource Tactics. He said his tests measure mental toughness, respect for authority and work ethic, among other hard-to-quantify aspects. The HRT test given to Aaron Hernandez, the former Patriots tight end now on trial for murder, had plenty of red ags: For instance, he scored a 1 on a 1-10 scale in the category of “social maturity.” “We point out which players may disrupt team activity,” Sanders said in a recent interview with Men’s Journal. “We use algorithms that take into account past behavior and compare scores with guys who have had problems in the past. We give teams a heads-up.”STAKESFROM PAGE 1We use algorithms that take into account past behavior and compare scores with guys who have had problems in the past.DR.

The rst full-squad workout is scheduled for Saturday. MLB: Tampa Bay notebookCabrera gets a jumpPORT CHARLOTTE — Position players aren’t required to report to Port Charlotte until Friday. That didn’t stop Asdrubal Cabrera from arriving four days early. The offseason free agent acquisition from the Cleveland Indians joined the 17 other early reporters at Charlotte Sports Complex early Monday morning, taking batting practice and elding ground balls at both second base and shortstop. “I like to know where I’m going to be,” Cabrera said. “Meet my new teammates and try to feel comfortable.” Cabrera — who hit .241 with 14 home runs and 61 RBIs last year between Cleveland, where Rays manager Kevin Cash was the bullpen coach, and Pittsburgh — appears the only sure bet to be an everyday player in the Rays middle ineld. But with his positional exibility and the unknown of who will play next to him from the group of Nick Franklin, Logan Forsythe, Tim Beckham, Hak Ju Lee and possibly Alexi Casilla, Cash isn’t sure whether Cabrera will be the primary second baseman, shortstop or a mix. “Coming in right now, we’re going to be versatile, and he’s going to be versatile going back and forth, getting his work in at both spots,” Cash said. “He has been very openminded. We’re ecstatic to have him in there every day.” Cabrera said he’s comfortable playing both spots, but he would “love to stay at one position” during the regular season. First day: Cash has been the Rays manager since December, but Monday’s first spring training workout marked the 37yearold’s first official day on the job. And he had no idea where to go “I didn’t know what field I was supposed to be on,” Cash joked afterward. “That’ll take another day or two. So I just kind of lingered around the catchers.” Cash said he relied on longtime third base coach and current bench coach Tom Foley to lead the day’s workout because “he knows exactly what he’s doing.” Extra bases: The only pitchers who haven’t reported to camp are Ronald Belisario and Alex Colome, both of whom are experiencing visa issues. Cash said he doesn’t expect the delay to last long. Eighteen of 25 position players have reported to camp four days before the required date. The Rays poked fun at video coordinator and former Joe Maddon “concierge” Chico Fernandez, putting him in a No. 70 jersey with “Jr.” written on the back during Monday’s workout.Contact Josh Vitale at 941 -2061122 or jvitale@ sun herald.com.By JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITERNew inelder wants to feel comfortable as quickly as possibleSUN PHOTO BY KATHERINE GODINAAsdrubal Cabrera throws from second during Monday’s workout at Charlotte Sports Park. Cabrera is one of 18 position players already in camp. Jake Odorizzi and Drew Smyly helped the Rays’ staff compile a 3.15 ERA after the All-Star Break last year, fth best in the majors over that stretch. Entering this spring, that quartet has put the pressure of carrying a heavy load on its shoulders. Even though none ts what Archer calls the “stereotypical denition” of an ace — no pitcher on the team has pitched more than 200 innings or won more than 17 games in a single season — all are striving to be one this year. “We understand, coming off of a bad year, the skepticism we’re going to have,” Cobb said. “As a team, we’re wellrounded. I really do. There are probably some questions out there, but when I look up and down the roster, I denitely think we have a good team. And the rotation is denitely a key part of that.” Cobb and Smyly were among the group of pitchers that threw bullpen sessions on Monday, something Kevin Cash said he watched closely on Day 1 of his rst spring training as a manager. “It is the rst day. It feels like it,” Cash said. “But at the same time, we’ve got guys who have thrown multiple bullpens here. So it’s been nice to see that. Everybody looked good.” As for the pitchers, they’re hoping Monday marks the beginning to the end of the questions. “Anytime anyone calls you out on your profession and makes you feel like you’re not as good as you know you are, there’s denitely something to prove,” Cobb said. “But I don’t feel like we need any extra motivation. It’s just going to be that much sweeter when we go out there and perform well.”Contact Josh Vitale at 941 -2061122 or jvitale@sun herald.com.PITCHERSFROM PAGE 1will return this weekend because it can’t play its scheduled home series against Eastern Illinois in Manhattan, Kan. Kentucky, which has yet to play at home because of weather and eld conditions, is coming to Port Charlotte this weekend as well. Earlier this month, Ohio State came to Port Charlotte for a weekend of preseason practice. This past weekend, Vanderbilt and Indiana State scheduled a last-minute series after their previously scheduled games were canceled due to cold and snow in the forecast. Though that series was not part of the Snowbird Classic, Vanderbilt and Kentucky are examples that not even Southeastern Conference teams are immune to weather woes. Mazey said the NCAA’s new governance structure, which gives more autonomy to the ve most powerful confer ences, makes this a good time to change the calendar. Mazey would need a conference to submit his proposal into the NCAA legislative process. American Baseball Coaches Association executive director Craig Keilitz said Mazey raises good points, but the proposal ranks behind scholarship rules and other issues on the coaches’ list of issues.SCHEDULEFROM PAGE 1 PHOENIX — Commissioner Rob Manfred said new rules intended to speed up the pace of games are aimed at luring younger fans. Manfred, speaking publicly on the changes for the rst time since they were announced last Friday, said the rules are a “measured” approach worked out with the MLB Players Association. The new commissioner, who took over when Bud Selig retired in January, says he has four children in their 20s, and that the attention span for that generation “seems to be shorter than the rest of ours.” This season, batters will be required to have one foot in the batter’s box and pitchers and batters will be required to be ready to go at the conclusion of television commercials. Around the nation: Texas second baseman Jurickson Profar underwent shoulder surgery and is expected to miss his second season in a row. Team physician Dr. Keith Meister repaired a labrum tear in Profar’s right shoulder. Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera said it’s too early to say whether he’ll be ready for opening day. Cabrera had offseason ankle surgery. Former Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire decided to take the year off, rather than work as an adviser. Minnesota manager Paul Molitor said Phil Hughes has been “penciled in” to take the mound on April 6 when the Twins play their opener at Detroit.New rules target younger fans MLB NOTEBOOKBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS good,” Lemon Bay coach Kim Pinkham said. “It took us a little while to make an adjustment. Their pitcher (Vanessa Morgan) did a good job. She kind of took it to us for a while until we were ready to make an adjustment.” Morgan went the distance for the Bobcats, giving up 10 hits and three walks while striking out four. For North Port coach Dennis Bell, seeing his team get on the scoreboard was a relief. “We finally scored some runs and got some base hits,” said Bell. “This team really needed that because we’ve been shutout for the last four games.” Emily Sims had two of North Port’s five hits. The Bobcats hurt themselves by having runners thrown out at third in the second and third innings. “We missed some signs and had some situations where we needed to execute and we didn’t,” said Bell. “We’ve just got to work on the fundamentals a little bit more and execute. They know now they can hang with a team like Lemon Bay. Sometimes when we’ve gone against teams like this, they’ve already lost the game before they step onto the field. But seeing them battle tonight against these guys, we were one or two pitches away from being right back in the game.” Ashton Werden pitched the first four innings for Lemon Bay (5-2) to pick up the victory. Bridget Ruhl held North Port hitless over the last three innings to earn the save. Jones had three hits, while Clemens and Wells had two apiece. “Our defense was better today,” said Pinkham. “We’ve been making a lot of errors lately that have been really hurting us. But we’ve got a lot of practice to do. We’ve got some tough competition coming up. We’ve been talking about needing to raise the bar and playing to win every pitch, not trying not to lose. We’re working on shifting that team mentality.”LEMON BAY 7, NORTH PORT 3North Port 000 300 0 — 3 5 1 Lemon Bay 004 300 x — 7 10 1 Vanessa Morgan and Brianna Mitchell.
