The Nav-A-Gator also offers an inter esting Wilderness River Cruise, where guests will see wildlife and learn about the plants, trees and history of the Peace River. Capt. Jeff Harkey, and his furry rst-mate Rusty, recently led about two dozen of us on a 90-minute tour during a cool, windy afternoon. Capt. Jeff kindly doled out blankets to those who were wearing shorts (aka northerners) and we slowly backed out of the marina, which is “the oldest, continually operating marina on the Peace River,” he said. “We’re about 10 miles from the 75 bridge Charlotte Harbor is about eight miles to the Gulf, so we’re about 20 miles from the Gulf of Mexico,” he said, helping orient visitors to the area. The roomy pontoon seats about 40 passengers who can bring drinks from the Nav-A-Gator, which offers easy-tocarry beer buckets that are great for groups. Capt. Jeff has been leading these tours at the Nav-A-Gator since October 2012. “We’re going on our third year,” he said. Many, including me, wondered what kind of wildlife we might encounter. “It all depends on what Mother Nature decides to put out,” he said. And Mother Nature was feeling generous that day. Capt. Jeff rst took us to a bird rookery occupied by brown pelicans and roseate spoonbills, which is the beautiful pink bird with the spoon-like beak. The roseate spoonbill — an actual snowbird that winters down here — has an average wingspan of 50 to 53 inches, making it a magnicent sight in ight.Nav-A-Gator offers river cruise MURDOCK — During an extended discussion about Charlotte’s 20-year building program, county commissioners emphasized the dire funding shortage they face, as well as potential solutions, which generally translate into tax increases. An aging infrastructure inherited from the original developer of Port Charlotte — General Development Corp., which owned and operated the public utilities — has saddled the county with a monumental task to update systems. Plus, large-scale road projects necessary for future growth are scheduled, but absent of adequate funding. Compounding these costs are years of deferred road maintenance, creating a giant money pit. The cost to fund Charlotte’s 20-year plan for capital improvements — including roads, bridges and facilities — exceeds $1 billion. Of that total, about two-thirds, or $642 million, is unfunded. “The unfunded number is huge,” Commissioner Ken Doherty said at Tuesday’s commission meeting. The largest portion of the longrange capital improvements budget is for road projects, accounting for $422 million, followed by $385 million in utilities projects, and $196 million for facilities. Commissioner Chris Constance made the point that Charlotte transportation impact fees, which are still in effect, are increasing, and should provide some relief.County explores future funding solutionsBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERFUNDING | 6 Right: Coach Christopher George stands by a gaming robot, which Robo Mojo, a rookie robotics team at Charlotte High School, recently used for competition in the state championship.SUN PHOTOS BY SOMMER BROKAWAbove: The Robo Mojo rookie team works on tweaking their gaming robot for the next level of competition. From left: Ryan Corcoran, Cassidy Baughn, Chris Cavic and Bradley Laishley.PUNTA GORDA — Charlotte High School ro botics coach Christopher George is proud to have two of his teams — veteran team, Tarpon Robotics 6451, and rookie team Robo Mojo 8908 — going to regional championships for the rst time. All that’s left now is for the young robot-engineers to gather enough money to travel to San Antonio, Texas, for the FIRST Tech Challenge Super Regional Championship at the Henry B. Gonzalez Center, March 11-13. George said it’s unusual for a rookie team to make it to the state championships, and then regionals. Tarpon Robotics, now in its third year competing in state championships, made it to the world championships last year, where it was one of 128 teams, and nished in the top 60 percent. “It feels pretty ecstatic that we get to move on,” said Christian Lombardi, 17, on the Tarpon Robotics 6451 team. “We’ve come a long way from placing 29th in the state my rst year.” J.J. Trentacosta, 16, Tarpon Robotics 6451, added that he’s learned more than just robots from the class. He’s also learned engineering skills he can use in “the real world,” and social skills he can use in the business world. By SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITERROBOTICS | 14Representatives from the Sarasota and Charlotte county school districts endorsed Gov. Rick Scott’s executive or der Tuesday to suspend a standardized test that Florida 11th-graders would have to take this spring, but felt Scott needs to go further. The test, a Florida standards assessment for English language arts, was suspended by Scott in Executive Order 15-31, which went on to “give the Legislature sufcient time during this legislative session to consider repeal of the requirement.” Although Sarasota County School District superintendent Lori White said she was “very supportive” of Scott’s action, other area school ofcials — such as Charlotte County Public Schools superintendent Doug Whittaker, Charlotte County School Board Chairman Lee Swift and Sarasota County School Board member Caroline Zucker — said Scott’s executive order does not go far enough.On board with suspended testsBy STEVEN J.

Our Town Page 6 C The Sun /Wednesday, February 25, 2015 FROM PAGE ONE But County Administrator Ray Sandrock said even with transportation impact fees and gas taxes, there would be a significant shortfall. For roads alone, there is a $334 million deficit projected over the next 20 years. Charlotte is not alone in facing these road-construction challenges, county consultant Herb Marlowe told commissioners. “This is an issue across the state of Florida. The numbers are just staggering,” he said. “Gas tax doesn’t do it anymore.” In addition, state and federal funds are not growing commensurate with need. In fact, annual revenue for road construction available to the county, from gas taxes and impact fees, was reduced by half in 2009, and remains flat. Marlowe then laid out a variety of possible new funding sources to help pay for future transportation needs, including for operations, maintenance and future capacity. These options include instituting a regional gas tax and/or a rental car surtax, or taxing vehicles based on miles driven, based on GPS monitoring. County options could include raising transportation impact fees or enacting a dedicated millage just for roads. It was estimated that a millage rate of 1.0 would generate $12 million annually. A mill equals $1 in taxes per $1,000 of a proper ty’s taxable value. Other alternatives include advocating for an increase in the federal gas tax, and voicing support for the Florida Department of Transportation budget, which would be reduced under Gov. Rick Scott’s proposed 2016 state budget. A larger FDOT budget would make more money available to counties, officials said. Cari Roth, the county’s state lobbyist, also joined the conver sation, saying she is stressing to legislators the current disparity between needs and revenue among local governments. To improve Charlotte’s chances to receive state funding, she encouraged the commission to build coalitions with surrounding counties with similar goals. “I like the idea of local-county-regional approaches,” she said. Commissioners latched onto that concept as well, in order to wield more clout. “United we stand,” Constance said. Commissioners also plan repeated trips to Tallahassee to make personal appeals to legislators for additional funds. Email: groberts@sun-herald.comFUNDINGFROM PAGE 1 “I think it’s a terrific first step,” Whittaker said. “But ... Scott hasn’t tackled the big issue. He needs to address the high-stakes issue of the annual English language arts/math assessments in grades three through 10. That’s not being addressed, and it leaves a terrible wake in its path.” Whittaker added it’s a logistical problem to administer those tests, which take place over a six-week period and require commandeering computer classrooms needed by other students. “The governor, the (education) commissioner and the legislators don’t understand that this isn’t just about giving kids tests,” he said. “It’s about disrupting teaching and learning and the flow of instruction in our schools.” Whittaker maintained the solution to this problem would be to hold benchmark testing, where school districts would do prog ress monitoring with the assessment systems currently in place. “Then the state could check on the kids at fth grade, eighth grade and 11th grade,” he said. “That would signicantly minimize the amount of testing time. The old saying, ‘The pig doesn’t get fatter because you weigh it,’ holds true. Kids aren’t going to learn more simply because you test them every year.” Zucker said she was “happy with less testing,” but added a comprehensive over view is necessary “for what we’re testing, whom we’re testing and why we’re testing.” “Just eliminating 11th-grade testing, I don’t know if it’s good or bad,” Zucker said. “It seems as if it’s putting a Band-Aid on the testing issue right now. Testing needs to be overhauled. I believe in accountability and I believe in testing, but excessive testing is not the way to go. And to eliminate one test from 11th grade — I’m not sure that’s the right thing to do, because it appears you’re reducing testing when you’re really reducing it in just one grade.” White said Scott’s action was an “appropriate” one. “This was the first time that they were going to have 11th-graders included in the state assessment program,” she said. “It is beyond the graduation requirement, and our 11th-graders are currently taking multiple tests already.” White added those tests include college entrance exams, as well as tests they currently can take for college credit. “Our 11th- — and, for that matter, 12th- — grade students take multiple assessments now that will benefit them,” she said. “This test that ... Scott suspended had very little meaning in terms of their futures, and would likely be not integral at all to their post-secondary educations.” Swift agreed with Whittaker that Scott’s executive order is a good first step, adding he hopes the Legislature will look at assessment testing “more closely.” “Hopefully they’ll do something more far-reaching,” Swift said. “They’re creating tests with no known validity about them. They have to figure out what the passing score is after they give the test. It’s crazy.” White chose to remain neutral on the subject of further reduction of assessment testing. “I don’t know what the future will hold,” she said. “The rest of it will take legislative change, and that has to go through the legislative process. There’s much debate on what is the appropriate level of assessment. And certainly there is some level of assessment that we should have in this state in reading, writing and mathematics. Those are very important skills that we want to see developed throughout a student’s career. I think, though, there is some overreach in areas beyond those, where you’re required to have all of those local assessments for the purpose of having teacher evaluation, that has put a strain on the system.” Whittaker said not one of the top 10 educationally ranked countries in the world — including Singapore, South Korea, Japan, Denmark and Finland — gives assessment tests to their students on an annual basis. “Finland and Denmark only give one major test, and that’s in 10th grade in high school, to determine their career paths,” he said. “Singapore benchmarks them periodically, as (do) South Korea and Japan. Nobody in the top-ranking countries in the world tries to do what we do. I believe it’s terribly misinformed and a waste of money.” Swift agreed. “Figure it out, get it right, and then do it,” he said. “Don’t try to do it then correct it. Do it right the first time.”TESTSFROM PAGE 1MURDOCK — Charlotte County Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch felt confident Tuesday that the West Coast Inland Navigation District will assist the county with the replacement of a seawall. The WCIND board meets 10:30 a.m. Friday in the council chambers of the Venice City Hall, 401 West Venice Ave. Deutsch will be presenting the WCIND board Friday — which includes representatives from the Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte and Lee county commissions — with a grant request for $331,760 to replace 90 linear feet of seawall on the Peace River, east of the U.S. 41 bridges. The seawall is part of the county’s planned $12.9-million Charlotte Harbor Community Redevelopment Agency Gateway improvements. “We were ready to go with this project two years ago,” Deutsch said after garnering support of Charlotte commissioners Tuesday. The project faced entanglements from state and federal agencies, Deutsch said. Among its revenue sources, WCIND collects property taxes from the four counties at a millage rate of 0.0394. A mill equals $1 per $1,000 of taxable value. According to its budget, WCIND expects to collect more than $5.2 million in property taxes, of which Charlotte contributes nearly $469,658, Sarasota more than $1.6 million, Manatee $973,239 and Lee more than $2.2 million. WCIND helps to fund numerous navigation, dredging and other boating-related projects. According to its 2014-2015 budget, the budgeted projects WCIND will provide Charlotte County include: $150,000 towards Stump Pass dredging and beach renourishment. $150,000 to the city of Punta Gorda for a Ponce Inlet dredging. $40,000 for maintenance and other navigational aid. $39,500 for a flats boat and other equipment supplied to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Marine Unit. $1,000 for the various U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla for boating course and other materials. $57,883 to the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center. $2,000 to the Peace River Sail and Power Squadron for boating course and materials. $2,000 to the Charlotte Harbor Reef Association and Don Ball School of Fishing.

Our Town Page 8 C The Sun /Wednesday, February 25, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS | NEWS BRIEFSWild Wednesday goes CubanoJoin the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center at 10:30 a.m. today at 10941 Burnt Store Road, Punta Gorda, for a free screening of the PBS Nature show “Cuba: An Accidental Eden.” Mike Ruiz of the Charlotte Sun , who was born and educated in Cuba, will be the special guest to share his experiences and answer questions about his homeland. Some of Cuba’s delicacies, such as pastries and cafe con leche, also will be featured. Cuba may have been restricted politically and economically for the past 50 years, but its borders have remained open to wildlife, for which Cuba’s undeveloped islands are an irresistible draw. While many islands in the Caribbean have poisoned or paved over their ecological riches on land and in the sea in pursuit of a growing tourist industry, Cuba’s wild landscapes have remained virtually untouched, creating a safe haven for rare and intriguing indigenous animals, as well as for hundreds of species of migrating birds and marine creatures. Coral reefs have beneted too. Independent research has shown that Cuba’s corals are doing much better than others both in the Caribbean and around the world.

The Sun /Wednesday, February 25, 2015 C Our Town Page 9 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. PORT CHARLOTTE — A 15-year-old has been arrested for sexually battering a young girl, according to a Charlotte County Sheriff’s report. Joseph Jon Balunas allegedly forced an 8-year-old girl to have sex with him and touched her inappropriately. Joseph, who was 14 at the time, tied the girl’s hands with string and put tape over her mouth during one incident, a sheriff’s report shows. The victim, now 10, told her mother about the alleged rapes earlier this month. The mother called authorities. Joseph, of the 22300 block of Montrose Avenue, Port Charlotte, was arrested last week on three counts of sexual battery. He was turned over to the state Department of Juvenile Justice. The boy’s booking sheet shows he is a student at Murdock Middle School. In 2012, Joseph, then 12, was charged with sexual battery after he was accused of inappropriately touching a 6-year-old girl, a sheriff’s report shows.Report: Woman sold ecstasy to cops 4 timesCHARLOTTE COUNTY — A 24-year-old Port Charlotte woman has been charged with allegedly selling MDMA — the psychoactive drug better known as ecstasy — to undercover detectives four times since September, according to a Charlotte County Sheriff’s report. Kristina Anne Moxely dealt a total of 48 grams of the drug for $1,300, authorities said. She was arrested after the fourth deal on Monday, and is facing four counts each of possession of MDMA, sale and delivery of MDMA, and possession of drug paraphernalia. During at least one transaction, Moxely reportedly advertised her drugs as “Molly,” a term commonly used to describe synthetic ecstasy. “Molly” made national headlines over the weekend when 11 people in Middletown, Conn., were hospitalized after taking the drug at a party on Wesleyan University’s campus. Moxely, of the 23000 block of Central Avenue, was held at the Charlotte County Jail Tuesday without bond.2 arrested after drug raidPEACE RIVER SHORES — Two people were arrested Monday night after authorities searched a home on Wilmer Road northeast of Punta Gorda and found more than a quarter-pound of mar ijuana, according to a Charlotte County Sheriff’s report. Patrick Charles DeRoche, 24, and Hannah Elizabeth Helmick, 20, who were at home during the 7 p.m. raid, were charged with possession of 348 grams of marijuana, possession of marijuana with the intent to sell, and possession of drug paraphernalia — since several smoking pipes and 26 bags with marijuana residue allegedly were found in a bedroom. DeRoche reportedly told deputies he would have been justied in shooting them when they came through the front door because they didn’t properly identify themselves. Both DeRoche and Helmick were held at the Charlotte County Jail Tuesday without bond for off-bond recommits for previous charges related to allegedly being caught with a lot of pot. The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office reported the following arrests: Peter Arendas, 48, homeless in Punta Gorda. Charges: two counts of violation of probation (original charges: exposure of sexual organs and resisting an officer). Bond: none. James Rueben Ballard, 40, 1000 block of Oxford Drive, Englewood. Charges: possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving without insurance. Bond: $9,000. James Harold Evans, 56, homeless in Port Charlotte. Charge: out-of-county warrant. Bond: $230. Melody Ann Hunter, 17, 3000 block of Riverside Drive, Punta Gorda. Charge: aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Whether it’s a lot or a little, someone would like to pick your brain. The Charlotte Harbor Fisheries Forum is a edgling program of the University of Florida. Although it’s intended to help link sheries managers and the public, the implications go far beyond shing. Fish need habitat, so much of the focus has been on Charlotte Harbor itself. Although scientists have been studying local waters for many years, there are still lots of questions unanswered. Charlotte County Sea Grant Agent Betty Staugler says anglers and other laypeople might have key information that would help. “The data scientists collect is far more meaningful when paired with observations from the general public,” she said. “The goal is to create a forum where people can share their experiences and thoughts. Ultimately, we hope to use the collective forum to make recommendations about sheries science and management to the appropriate agencies.” Naturally, shermen spend a lot of time on the water, so they are the best-represented group so far. But anyone who has an involvement or interest in the harbor is invited. According to WaterLine Weekly Magazine Publisher Josh Olive, even those who don’t make a living directly from the water depend on it. “We need to prioritize the health of Charlotte Harbor, because it’s what makes this area unique,” Olive said. “It’s the water that draws tourists here from around the globe. Without it, they’d be gone. We would see our local economy sink and property values would plummet, along with our tax base. We’d become just another small town, nothing special.” Local shing guide Capt. Jay Withers agrees that people need to focus on the harbor. “We have an incredible resource that we need to help sustain,” he said. “If all we’re doing is just taking and taking without putting anything back, eventually it won’t be able to support that.” Withers said he’s noticed a decline in redsh and other popular species since moving here 13 years ago. “I’ve watched our shery change over the years, and not for the better, so I gured I needed to get involved,” he said. The forum could become a way for local concerns to be addressed by regulators and lawmakers. But according to Staugler, unless people take an active interest in helping, this ultimately will be a failed effort. “The success of the forum is dependent upon those who attend taking ownership and actively participating,” she said. “We’re hoping a lot of interested people show up Thursday night.”Fisheries forum wants your inputSTAFF REPORTIF YOU GOWhat: Charlotte Harbor Fish eries Forum When: 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday Where: community room at Laishley Park Municipal Marina, 120 Laishley Court, Punta Gorda


Our Town Page 10 C The Sun /Wednesday, February 25, 2015 More service to Manatee residentsEditor: Although I empathize with a view expressed in the Feb. 10 Sun, the North Port City Commission’s decision to fund the splash pad and enhancements in Atwater Park indicates they under stand their obligation to all taxpayers of the city. The board’s decision was just: North Porters on Atwater are a signicant distance from the skateboard park, and those living near North Port Boulevard and Biscayne are a comparable distance to Atwater Park. Few elected entities would use their authority to spend tax revenues outside the jurisdiction they serve. Thus, although Port Charlotte residents may benet from the park improvements, the City Commission did not fund the improvements in Port Charlotte. However, there is one local exception. One public entity has used its tax revenues to improve services of those who are not residents of the jurisdiction and pay no taxes to the board which made this strange decision. Sarasota Memorial Hospital Board has opted to serve Manatee County residents who pay no taxes to our public hospital. The range of services offered to Manatee residents is greater than the range offered in southern Sarasota County. In 2013, SMH opened an urgent care center in Venice, although Englewood taxpayers remain totally unserved by SMH taxation. Unless a patient at the SMH ER in North Port assertively designates an alternative hospital, patients deemed to need in-patient hospitalization are automatically transferred to SMH in downtown Sarasota, a signicant inconvenience and added expense to local taxpayers. I know from more than one experience.Rik Jimison North PortThe evil core of environmentalismEditor: I love the environment. Our landscapes have always embodied the beauty of the natural surroundings and all have required extensive care. Hence, conservation of our environmental-based investments has always been a priority. However, I have problems with organized environmentalism, an extremist movement established to control the global landscape by replacing reasonable land management methods, which not only protect the environment, but accommodate needed economic development. This movement, controlled by nonprot organizations, places all power in Mother Nature, not in God, the true environmentalist and creator/governor of the universe. Organized conser vationist actions denigrate God-given human natural rights via ultra-restrictive environmental laws, often enacted in repayment of campaign contributions. This dangerous movement also has a hidden agenda, as revealed on Feb. 3, in Brussels when Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N.’s Convention on Climate Change stated publicly the real goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity, but to destroy capitalism (the economic engine, which made America/its people the greatest wealth-producing society in the planet’s long history). Many of our politicians have bought into this fraud and are slowly dismantling the “American dream” and turning this great country into a society mirroring European socialism, a governmental system which has never survived any test of time. Europe’s socialistic dominated economy is in tatters and is steadily getting worse. People, repudiate organized environmentalism for its evil core is an attack against perpetuation of your God-given rights and your nancial future.Margo Bigelow Port CharlotteSMH sets direction for trauma centerOUR POSITION: Sarasota County Public Hospital Board takes appropriate step to establish higher level of trauma center care.With the population of Southwest Florida continually rising, state health care regulators recently decided there was sufficient reason to permit another Level II trauma center in our region. These facilities are equipped to handle the most extreme cases of injuries. They require designated support staff, surgeons and special facilities that operate around the clock, seven days a week. They deal with the harshest life-anddeath situations. The real-life “ER,” where every minute counts. Two such facilities already serve Sarasota, Charlotte and DeSoto counties. If someone is seriously injured in a car crash, for instance, they may be taken by ambulance or airlifted to a Level II trauma center at Blake Medical Center in Bradenton or Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers. On Wednesday, the board that runs the public Sarasota Memorial Health Care System approved plans to open a Level II trauma center — the region’s third such center — at the system’s flagship Sarasota Memorial Hospital on U.S. 41 in Sarasota. The board expects to make $3.6 million in capital improvements. After conducting a lengthy feasibility study, the hospital has hired three emer gency room surgeons and is upgrading a resuscitation room. More equipment will be purchased. Sometime before April 1, formal application will be submitted to the state Department of Health for final approval, which is expected to be granted later in the spring. As hospital spokeswoman Kim Savage told Sun staff writer Clinton Burton last week, the new facility is being driven by the numbers. Population growth will continue. “We are expecting anywhere from 500 to 1,000 trauma cases” in the next five-10 years, she said. The new option should improve outcomes for trauma patients. In a scenario when every minute counts, transporting may be done more quickly. Sarasota already provides the broadest spectrum of health care services in the region. Patient outcomes will improve when they are able to be treated at the hospital they are taken into. Sarasota Memorial is a public, not-for-profit health care system which has been branching out to serve communities far from the central hospital. A large Emergency Room and Health Care Center was opened in the past decade off Toledo Blade Boulevard. The Bayflite helicopter service operates a short distance away at the City Hall complex on Sumter Boulevard. SMH also owns property that is expected to be used for a full-scale hospital as the city grows. County property owners support SMH with taxes. Board members are elected by voters. It’s only proper that county residents receive services from the hospital they help pay for. Those living outside Sarasota County should benefit from another service option. The Level II trauma center is simply a continuation of an appropriate expansion of service. A real positive.End the silly back and forthEditor: Folks who now complain most about media bias have little credibility to do so. That’s because they are more guilty than most of creating the bias about which they complain. Nobody does that better than the performers at and the viewers of the Fox News channel, where creating a successful, but divisive, business model has become more important than making positive political contributions to the challenges of governing. They’re doing that by creating an inviting mixture of bias soup for Republicans and then relying upon traditional party discipline to achieve high ratings and earn lots of money. And that strategy is working. They’ve created an environment where Republicans reliably go to see and hear the news/views they want to hear. And that’s just ne. But that “fair and balanced” mantra? It’s a joke. And they clearly haven’t earned the right to credibly point ngers at anyone else for bias. On the ip side, we freely acknowledge that the folks at MSNBC are just as aggressive in their bias for Democrats and the political left. And while that, too, is ne, that network could provide rating evidence that their fringe benets are substantially less. That’s because Dems are again proving that “we are members of no organized political party.” We need to end this silly back and forth by deciding to do the right thing. Let’s stop whining about bias and start helping the country we say we love by focusing on serious remedies to our challenging problems. Chuck Richards Rotonda WestRepublicans also ‘enemies within’Editor: So, the aky fringe of the Republican Party is claiming that President Obama is supporting ISIS. And they care not that their abuse is unfair and partial as with that most rampant purveyor of Republican falsehoods, Fox News. But these are American elected ofcials, and the uninformed might assume that they have at least a modicum of character and intelligence. At least America’s other enemies from outside this country might believe those falsehoods and that Americans are totally opposed to our president. So, that silly abuse and ridicule of our president might be taken seriously by our other enemies and make it more difcult for him to defend our nation against those foreigners who are also looking for any excuse to damage our country. Now consider the irony that Republicans have been criticizing the president by claiming that his feckless (a new favorite Republican word) foreign policy has weakened his stature in the world and made him less effective in negotiating and dealing with our allies and enemies. But if Republicans were really concerned about the standing of and respect for our president in the world, would they publicly berate and ridicule everything he does? Would patriotic Americans really be so critical of our president that they would spread lies and false gossip about him every time they get their face on television? These nasty Republicans claim to be patriotic, but it is difcult to distinguish them from America’s other enemies.Wayne R. Anderson North PortMedical marijuana a money-making ‘scam’Editor: I realize that John Morgan, our “for the people” barrister, can afford to hire almost anything he wants, probably including the FDA. But just to help him, I’ve formulated a side effects sheet for his cause celebre’: medical marijuana. I submit the following. “The active ingredient in this medication may vary in concentration over a wide range, and the inactive ingredients in this medication are also not xed in concentration or identity. This medication may cause an increased heart rate, and/or decreased blood pressure. It may cause chronic bronchitis, lung infections, may lead to lung cancer, and it may weaken your immune system. Extended use can impair learning ability and memory, and lead to a general decrease in motivational level. “For pregnant users of this medication, there may be lower birth weights, increased risk of a need for neonatal intensive care, and possible learning impairment in your offspring.” Not encouraging, eh? The drug Marinol, a substitute for what few uses marijuana might have in medicine (primarily appetite stimulus, control of nausea), is certainly better for you, but still has some of the above side effects. As for the ability of marijuana to control seizures, the evidence does not rise to a scientic level of respectability. In fact, anecdotal evidence shows that marijuana has induced seizures in some users. So to John Morgan and sidekick, Charlie Crist, just tell “the people” that you were hoping to make great prots from the medical marijuana scam.John R. Doner Port CharlottePerceives ulterior motives at workEditor: U nless I missed it, the Sun didn’t notice that we had a circus in town. That’s news, but I detect a small time tit-for-tat that feels like “you don’t advertise with me, I don’t give you no publicity.” Of course, we citizens can detect the commercial quid pro quo posture, and even empathize. But it doesn’t t the class acts of quality newspapering where “All the News That’s Fit to Print” is not dictated or demented by advertising needs. Well, I guess that if you are “small town,” small town is what we get.

The Sun /Wednesday, February 25, 2015 C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINTIn July of 2012, President Obama signed into law the “Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Re vived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act of 2012,” known as the RESTORE Act, to establish a trust fund. The Gulf Coast Restoration Trust Fund is for 80 percent of the administrative and civil penalties from the parties responsible for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, to be made available to the affected states for eligible activities. Thirty-ve percent of those funds (called direct funds) are allocated in equal shares to the ve Gulf Coast states of Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama and Florida. Florida’s share is to be divided as follows: 75 percent to the eight counties that were disproportionately impacted (Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay, Gulf, Franklin and Wakulla) and the rest (25 percent) to the 15 counties on the Gulf Coast, but less impacted. Charlotte County is one of the 15 counties that will receive RESTORE Act funds for eligible activities, and the county’s share is estimated at $723,903 in direct funds. RESTORE funds other than the direct component would be awarded through a competitive process. Eligible activities for which these funds may be used are dened in the RESTORE Act, Section 1603(3). In general, eligible activities are programs, projects, and activities that restore and protect the environment and economy of the Gulf Coast. For example, restoration and protection of the ecosystems, beaches, and sheries or mitigation of damage to sh and wildlife are eligible. Examples of eligible activities of the economy component include infrastructure projects that benet the economy of ecological resources; promotion of tourism; and workforce development. On Nov. 12, 2014, the Charlotte County Board of County Commissioners adopted a resolution creating the Charlotte County RESTORE Act Advisory Board. Among the responsibilities of the advisory board are reviewing and ranking projects, and assisting with the development of a multiyear implementation plan that will include the approved projects. The plan will be submitted to the Department of Treasury for approval to be considered for RESTORE funding as the funds are released and made available through competitive grants. Applications were accepted through Nov. 25 and members were chosen who had experience in environmental science or advocacy; coastal resource management; marine sciences; nance, accounting/ grants management; tourism; or economic development. The rst meeting was held Jan. 7, 2015. The RESTORE Act Advisory Board is now accepting applications for project funding requests. Applications are available online. Visit www.CharlotteCountyFL. gov and click “RESTORE Act Funding Application” in the Hot Topics list. Paper copies are available in Administration at 18500 Murdock Circle, Port Charlotte. Application deadline: 5 p.m., April 17.

Staff will present 30 percent concept plans to council when completed. Construction of a seawall replacement with a 2-foot cap along Harborwalk West from Harvey to the Bayfront Center. In addition, there will be a 5-foot grass median between the seawall and 20-foot Harborwalk. Weiler Engineering will proceed with preparation of seawall replacement bid documents for the area between the gazebo and Bayfront. This work will need to be completed before federal grant funds become available for park improvements (including the remainder of seawall replacement) between Harvey and the gazebo.Mining permitsCity Council approved distribution of a letter to the Charlotte County Commission regarding concerns about permit extensions for mining operations within the city’s potable water supply Shell Creek watershed area. Specically, the city wants to be directly involved in evaluation of any permit extensions in order to ensure that mining operations are not adversely affecting water quality. Letters were also sent to Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council, and Southwest Florida Water Management District highlighting our concerns with changes to the county’s Comprehensive Plan that weakens protections for valuable regional potable water resources in general and specically protection of Shell Creek, the city’s potable water source. Underground utilitiesCity staff met with representatives of Burnt Store Isles, per their request, to revisit underground wir ing opportunities for the community. Previously, this issue was discussed and a preliminary vote taken within the community in the 2002-2003 time frame, the results of which showed that a majority of voters were in opposition of the proposed project. The recent meeting identied issues such as nancing for an FPL engineer’s report, formation of an assessment district, voting procedures, right-of-way requirements and public information to be addressed. The BSI committee will discuss with the homeowners association whether consideration of under ground wiring is worthy of further consideration by the community at-large. Council Member Nancy Prafke was in attendance.Information technologyThe evaluation and selection committee for the city website redesign received presentations from qualifying vendors this week.

Our Town Page 12 C The Sun /Wednesday, February 25, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Chris Constance dug his knees into the concrete. Holding a re hose while crawling and feeling alongside a wall in the darkness, he and two others were taxed with nding the victim. Although it was a simulated re with no smoke, just vapors, the Charlotte County commissioner was dressed in full re gear including oxygen tank, boots, a helmet and face mask — all compounding the search for the victim into a real-life, hands-on drill. Successfully, Constance, Sarasota County Commissioner Paul Caragiulo and a Manatee County commissioner rescued the dummy “victim” from the simulated burning building. Next they were asked to climb a ight of stairs and again enter a scenario with multiple dark, smoky rooms looking for anyone trapped inside. Upon completion, the crew went up a third set of stairs. This time they entered the room with a thermal imaging camera and successfully found the victim who was a real reghter laying on the ground. Exhausted, the crew wasn’t asked to rescue him, but identify the victim by his body heat showing on the camera. “Fireghters get used to having the digital imaging camera, but sometimes the batteries die or it fails and you have to go back to using muscle memory from training,” said North Port reghter Jentzen Barton, who was also an instructor, at the recent citizen’s re academy at the Englewood Fire Department Training Center. “The cameras are very expensive. We have to make sure they never get left behind while trying to save someone.” Instructors explained there’s a lot going on in the middle of a re including cracking sounds, thick smoke, the darkness. There could be a victim screaming for help. The commissioners were invited to see rsthand how res are fought, the tools and equipment used and how reghters interact with other rst responders. During the lunch break, commissioners were asked why reghters don’t run head-on toward a burning car. “The bumpers can blow off and impale a person or a re truck,” said Merv Kennell, president of the Suncoast Professional Fireghters & Paramedics IAFF Local 2546, the event sponsor. “We approach the car from an angle because it’s more safe.” Barton explained vehicles don’t generally blow up, like in the movies, but can burn quite intensely. “Usually the re is concentrated in an area of the car,” he said, adding gasoline by itself isn’t explosive. It will burn but not explode. Fireghters explained unless the vehicle is carrying some sort of volatile explosives, nothing in an average gasoline or diesel truck or car will be explode. Constance also asked how trafc lights are controlled for reghters and paramedics en route to emergencies. “Does the dispatcher have control over the trafc lights while the re trucks and ambulance are en route to a call?” he asked. In most areas of Sarasota County, reghters have a small box similar to a garage door opener that controls the trafc lights turning them green as they approach an intersection. There was even talk about allowing Sarasota County Area Transit buses to use the technology to keep buses on schedule, said one instructor. After lunch, the group ripped the backseats out of a totaled vehicle to remove simulated trauma victims. Each took turns administering CPR before the victims were hospitalized. Because one suffered a head injury, Bayite, which is housed in North Port, was called to the scene. Once the helicopter arrived, the “patient” was taken away. The helicopter returned so its three-person crew could answer questions about the services they provide for critically ill and injured patients who need immediate specialized care. They talked about the golden hour a patient has from the time of the crash or medical emergency to the time they are in surgery. Commissioners learned that Bayite is one of the only medical helicopters in Florida to carry blood. Currently, Bayite ies to Blake Memorial in Bradenton, Tampa General, All Children’s Hospital and Fort Myers’ Lee Memorial Hospital all depending upon the crash site in Englewood and North Port. Once the helicopter left for good, commissioners were taught how to properly pull the hose off a re truck, drag it so the water can ow through it and then ght a re. “I learned a lot today about the behind-thescenes of the re department,” said Constance, who is also a plastic surgeon. Caragiulo said he will understand more now when the re department asks for equipment and other life saving materials. “This was a really good experience,” he said.

Capt. Jeff educated the passengers about the species and its difcult life cycle. The wilderness tour ventures into the Peace River and around Liverpool Island. Who knew we had an island named Liverpool? Well, it turns out, we also had a town named Liverpool that once was home to about 60 people, according to former Sun columnist Lindsey Williams. Remnants of this town, founded by John Cross, can still be seen by the bricks lining parts of the river that once served as a dock. He also had a hand in creating Punta Gorda. “Cross arranged the sale of a 30-acre town site (now Punta Gorda) from James M. Lanier to Col. Isaac Trabue of Kentucky in 1884,” Williams wrote. “As agent for the Florida Southern Railway then pushing south from Lakeland, Cross helped persuade the company to extend its line to Trabue’s property. Cross continued to broker sales in Trabue (Punta Gorda), bought many lots himself, and served as trustee for an annual chess tournament there endowed by the sale of pineapples. In appreciation, Trabue named a principal street for Cross (now Tamiami Trail, U.S. 41 south).” I had no idea that was the origin of Cross Street and I’ve been living here for almost 15 years. Capt. Jeff also shared interesting information about John Cross’ inuence in the Englewood area as well. Cleveland resident Amy Trotch and her family experienced the wilderness tour during their recent vacation. “It was excellent, especially if you aren’t familiar with the area,” said Trotch. “I would do it again.” I would do it again too, and I’m familiar with the area. The wilderness cruise is a fun way to see and learn about the Peace River. Those who have a larger group or special event can book a lunch cruise.

FIRST is a worldwide nonprot organization that is “devoted to helping young people discover and develop a passion for science, technology, engineering and math,” according to its brochure. It does this through competitions that follow a sports model, like the “Cascade Effect” game in the state championship this year. The goal was for wireless robots to score balls into rolling goals. Two alliance teams — a red and a blue — competed in a two-and-a-half minute match. Robo Mojo 8098 was Winning Alliance champion, and Tarpon Robotics was a Final Alliance winner, which George said basically equates to rst and second place in the state championships. CHS students worked their way up to state championships, and then the regionals, starting with building the robots in six weeks to play the game announced by FIRST in September. The robots they built are controlled through a wireless network, which drives them around, George said. A mechanism within the robot grabs onto the rolling goals, and there is a lift within the machine that dumps the balls into the goals, which are three different heights in the game. After building the robots, students went on to the league competition in January, and then moved on to the state championship earlier this month. At the state championships, rookies said they were told it was unusual for them to make it to the state level. “I thought it was pretty awesome,” said Ryan Corcoran, 15, who is on the Robo Mojo 8908 team. “It says a lot about us. Our veteran guys also helped us out a lot.” When he gets older, he wants to become a mechanical engineer. “This has denitely helped me decide what I want to do because I enjoy it, and it’s a lot of fun,” he said. George said they are still looking for more sponsors to help them with expenses for their trip to the regionals in San Antonio, Texas, and tweaks to their robots, which cost them $8,000 to build. To inquire about sponsorship, call CHS at 941-5755450, and ask for the bookkeeper.

ABDUCTION | 4 SATELLITE BEACH — Rescuers working late into the night freed 19 manatees that were stuck in a storm drain in Florida. Capt. Jay Dragon of the Satellite Beach Fire Department said early Tuesday that the 19 manatees were all alive and were returned to the Indian River Lagoon System. A manatee-rescue team from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, along with police and reghters, were helping the marine mammals Monday evening. Rescuers brought heavy earth-moving equipment to the Satellite Beach neighborhood, located on a barrier island on Florida’s central Atlantic Coast near Cape Canaveral. Authorities initially said there were as many as 15 manatees stuck in the drain. FWC Research Institute spokesman Brandon Basino said it is unclear exactly how the manatees became stuck, but noted that there was no grate on the storm drain. However, he added that manatees typically seek out warm habitats for the winter months. “They’re also curious animals, so there are a number of reasons they could have swam up there,” Basino said. “We’re still looking up how long they have been in the drainage system and working with the city to resolve the issue.” In the meantime, a temporary structure has 19 manatees get stuck in drainBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOSCrowds gathered near the west end of Cassia Boulevard in Satellite Beach, Fla., Monday to watch Sea World, FWC, Satellite Fire Dept and public works work to save manatees stuck in a drainage pipe.

(AP) — A commuter train slammed into a truck abandoned on the tracks early Tuesday, sending three rail cars tumbling onto their sides and injur ing 28 people in the ery crash in California. The accident occurred around 5:45 a.m. about 65 miles northwest of Los Angeles. Four people, including the train engineer, had critical injuries. The truck driver was found several miles away, and authorities were questioning him about why the vehicle was left on the tracks. Glenn Frisbie was driving to work and sitting at an intersection about a block away when the train struck the truck. “I saw a bright ash, a big reball and ames, ames going pretty high,” he said. Little was left of the truck except scorched and mangled wreckage, with some debris found in a nearby intersection and some close to the tracks.Prosecutor: Man collected dead dad’s benefits for 29 yearsTRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a New Jersey man collected his father’s Social Security benets for 29 years after he died, stealing more than $243,000. Nicholas Severino Jr. was indicted Monday on a theft charge. The 62-year-old Paulsboro man could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted. Acting Attorney General John Hoffman says Severino’s father had worked a second job using a false name and obtained a second Social Security number using that name. Hoffman says after the father died in April 1984, Severino continued to collect benets paid in connection with that false identity. The Social Security Administration stopped paying benets in August 2013 after the agency tried unsuccessfully to locate Severino’s father.IRS: Your chances of getting audited lowest in a decadeWASHINGTON (AP) — The IRS says budget cuts forced the agency to reduce the number of tax audits last year to the lowest level in a decade. In 2014, fewer than 1 percent of individual tax returns were audited, the lowest rate since 2004. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen says the number of audits is likely to decline again this year. In a speech on Tuesday, Koskinen said there are fewer audits because the tax agency has fewer agents. He said the IRS is down more than 2,200 revenue agents since 2010. Congress has cut the agency’s budget by more than $1.3 billion since 2010. Koskinen’s speech comes in the middle of tax season, just as millions of Americans are ling their annual returns.NY to raise tipped wage to $7.50ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Restaurant servers, hotel housekeepers and other tipped workers in New York will soon make $7.50 an hour before tips, a big raise for thousands of workers and a signicant increase in labor costs for business owners. Like most states, New York allows businesses to pay tipped workers less than the state’s minimum wage as long as tips make up the difference. Currently, servers in New York make $5 per hour, compared to a minimum wage of $8.75. The increase will take effect Dec. 31. In New York City, the tipped wage will automatically go to $8.50 an hour if the city gets permission to raise its minimum wage above the state’s rate.Highly skilled immigrant spouses can soon work in USSAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — When Neha Mahajan’s husband got a job transfer from New Delhi to New Jersey, she was excited to come along. But the thrill faded when the television reporter realized there was no way she could get a job in the United States because immigration rules barred her from working. Over six years, she became deeply frustrated. That changed Tuesday when the Obama administration announced a visa rule revision that will let spouses of some highly skilled immigrants apply to work in the United States starting this year. “This rule has come as a big, big relief to me,” Mahajan said during a press call organized by immigration reform activists. “I can nally dream of being myself.” Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said the change will encourage more highly skilled workers to come to the United States on H-1B visas and apply for green cards to stay here. (AP) — A wide swath of the country shivered in freezing, record-breaking temperatures while other areas saw more winter precipitation Tuesday. A mix of snow, sleet, rain and freezing rain hit parts of the southern Plains and the South, where school districts in more than a half-dozen states from Texas eastward canceled or delayed classes. Meanwhile, the East Coast endured colderthan-usual weather. Temperatures were well below average in many spots, and even far below zero. The wintry weather showed no sign of letting up: Especially in the South, many folks braced for more storms later this week. Here’s a look at what’s happening:Chain-reaction crashA man was seriously injured after he got out of his car on a Michigan bridge and was struck by a vehicle in a chain-reaction crash, ofcials said. The 11-vehicle wreck happened around 9:30 a.m., Executive Secretary Bob Sweeney of the Mackinac Bridge Authority said. Winds up to 50 mph whipped snow off the frozen Straits of Mackinac, making visibility poor, Sweeney said. A man got out of his car to switch places with his wife and was hit. Then a number of other vehicles ran into each other, he said. The injured motorist was taken to a hospital but his condition was unknown, Sweeney said. The 5-mile-long bridge was closed until about 2:20 p.m.No stopping for bicycle commuterThe cold and snow haven’t stopped Fraser Cunningham. On Friday, just as he’s been doing every single morning at 5:30 for more than 18 months, the 56-year-old GE engineer hopped on his bicycle and rode to work. It was so cold that his eyes froze open during the trek, he told The Cincinnati Enquirer. “It’s better than freezing shut,” he said. Cunningham hadn’t missed a day commuting by bicycle since July 22, 2013. His route is 16.5 miles each way. Missing a day because it’s raining, or snowing, or windy, would be a slippery slope, he said — it has to be every day.Salt shortageAs snow and frigid temperatures continue in Ohio, communities in parts of the state are running short on road salt, city ofcials said. Some cities have waited weeks for hundreds of tons of ordered salt, the Northeast Ohio Media Group reported. The region has recorded nearly 60 inches of snow since November. Lowerthan-average temperatures have made snow harder to melt and roads more difcult to clear. For some cities, a serious salt problem is just one more snowfall away. “We have enough to last this next week, but if it keeps consistently snowing it’s going to be difcult,” Middleburg Heights Service Director Jim Herron said.Snowball fightAt Duke University, psychology professor Amir Rezvani brought his class outside for an impromptu snowball ght near the trafc circle that surrounds the statue of Washington Duke. More than two dozen students giggled and bent over to grab handfuls of snow and pelt one another. “I asked them to come out for 10 minutes,” Rezvani said before bending over and balling up some snow. Mary Gabrielle Thomas, a freshman from Boston, said the “snow’s not very impressive.” But she admitted the snowball ght was wonderful.No relief: More cold, snow, ice, wintry mix for much of US AP PHOTOIce ows in New York harbor near lower Manhattan, Tuesday. A wide swath of the country is experiencing record-breaking temperatures while other areas are expecting more winter precipitation Tuesday. DETROIT (AP) — It’s a case of buyer beware, with potentially danger ous consequences. More than 46 million cars and trucks on the road in the U.S. — about one-fth the total — were recalled because of safety defects but never repaired, according to a study by Carfax, a company that sells vehicle history reports. Some of those defects have the potential to cause a crash, injury, even death. Last year, around 5 million of those cars were sold to new owners. That’s because there is no legal requirement for dealers or individual sellers to get the repairs done before a used car is sold. They are not even obligated to tell buyers if a car is subject to a recall. “It’s a very major public safety problem,” says Chris Basso, a used-car specialist for Carfax, which analyzed state registration data to determine that one-fth of the 238 million cars on the nation’s roads has an unrepaired problem that was the subject of a recall. “When those recalled cars go unxed, they compound over the years, and it increases the chance of those parts failing.” Federal regulators are pushing for legislation that requires dealers to x recalled used cars. Independent dealers oppose such a measure but say they might go along with a requirement to disclose recalls to buyers because a new government database makes it easier to tell if a car on their lot has been recalled. The number of unxed cars is certain to rise because automakers recalled nearly 64 million vehicles nationwide last year, double the old record set in 2004. Government data show that 25 percent of car owners never get recall repairs done. No one is sure how many crashes or injuries happen because of unheeded recalls.

The Sun /Wednesday, February 25, 2015 WIRE Page 3 STATE/WORLD NEWS | STATETrial opens for man claiming pot was for medical purposeFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) — A South Florida man is using a medical necessity defense in a trial on charges of illegally growing dozens of marijuana plants on his property. Opening statements are expected Tuesday in the case of 50-year-old Jesse Teplicki of Hollywood. Teplicki says the 46 plants seized by authorities two years ago were not for distribution but for his own use, to ght symptoms related to the eating disorder anorexia. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that this is the rst time such a defense has been tried before a Florida jury, with previous cases decided only by judges. Teplicki attorney Michael Minardi says the narrow failure last year of a medical marijuana constitutional amendment could mean more jurors are sympathetic to Teplicki’s defense. Teplicki faces a maximum ve-year prison sentence if convicted.Settlement made in parasailing crash lawsuitPANAMA CITY (AP) — Two Indiana teenagers who were seriously injured in a Florida Panhandle parasailing crash have settled their lawsuits, according to their lawyers. Attorneys for Sidney Good and Alexis Fairchild — both 18 now — conrmed a settlement was reached Monday after more than a year of negotiations. Details of the settlement, including the amount, were condential. Wes Pittman, an attorney for Good, said during a news confer ence Tuesday outside a Panama City courthouse that the money is going to help the girls for the rest of their lives in a very meaningful way. “They’re both committed to going through school even though they have signicant learning disabilities from their injuries,” Pittman said. Debi Chalik, who represents Fairchild, said her client is still dealing with having to live her life with a brain injury. “Although she has come a long way, she still has a long way to go,” Chalik said. The Huntington, Ind., teenagers were seriously injured in July 2013 in Panama City Beach when the rope tethering their parasail to a boat snapped, causing them to crash into a building, a power line and vehicles. Stripper tells deputy drugs are for her back painSUGARLOAF KEY (AP) — A 23-year-old woman told a sheriff’s deputy she had drugs in her car for the back pain she suffers from being an adult dancer. Monroe County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ken Fricke spotted partially clad Kayla Gregg passed out behind the wheel of her vehicle in Sugarloaf Key on Monday. He knocked on the window and asked to see her identication. That’s when he saw bags of what appeared to be drugs in the woman’s purse. One bag tested positive for cocaine and she was arrested. Deputies found other drugs in the car, including oxycodone, morphine and a smoking pipe. | WORLDUS church says missionary kidnapped SEATTLE (AP) — A U.S. church says several people abducted one of its missionaries from a compound in central Nigeria. The Free Methodist Church says in a statement on its website that it received a report Monday morning that the Rev. Phyllis Sortor was kidnapped from the Hope Academy compound in Emiworo, Kogi state. The message from Bishop David Kendall says the U.S. Embassy has been notied, and the State Department and the FBI are working with local authorities to nd and rescue her. 9 dead including gunman in Czech restaurant PRAGUE (AP) — A gunman opened fire inside a small-town restaurant in eastern Czech Republic Tuesday, killing eight people and seriously wounding a waitress before he fatally shot himself, officials said. It was the worst shooting attack in the young country’s history. The gunman was a local man aged around 60, said Patrik Kuncar, mayor of the southeastern town of Uhersky Brod. Czech public radio said the gunman called a local television station before the attack, complaining that police weren’t solving his problems and threatening that he would “take things into his hands.” Interior Minister Milan Chovanec, who arrived at the scene, said the man had a gun license. “It was not a terrorist attack,” he said.Series of bombs in Iraq kill 40BAGHDAD (AP) — A series of bombings in Iraq, including twin blasts in a busy street in a Baghdad suburb, killed at least 40 people and wounded dozens on Tuesday, Iraqi ofcials said. The deadliest of the day’s attacks came shortly before sunset, when a bomb exploded in Baghdad’s southeastern suburb of Jisr Diyala. Minutes later, a car bomb went off near the site of the rst blast as people started gathering to help the victims of the initial explosion. The casualty toll in Jisr Diyala rose throughout the evening, and within hours, police and hospital ofcials said that at least 25 people had been killed and that 50 were wounded, including several students who had just come out of a nearby school after class. US troops heading to Ukraine to give medical trainingWASHINGTON (AP) — A U.S. military ofcial says the Pentagon will be deploying a small number of troops to Ukraine to provide medical training to forces there who have been battling Russian-backed separatists. Between five and 10 service members will go to western Ukraine next week for what will be a second round of coaching and mentoring members of the Ukraine military, who will then go on to become trainers. The official discussed the deploy ment on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak on the record. ILOVAYSK, Ukraine (AP) — Russian-backed separatists moved some heavy weapons well back from the front line Tuesday in eastern Ukraine, but the Ukrainian government disputed the rebels’ claim that a real pullback had begun. A peace plan worked out in marathon talks on Feb. 12 aims to create a wide buffer zone between the two sides’ artillery, part of efforts to end the conict that has left nearly 5,800 dead since April. Heavy weapons are to be pulled back 25 to 70 kilometers (15 to 45 miles) from the front line, depending on their caliber. The disagreement over a weapons pullback came as the fragile peace deal for Ukraine was discussed in Paris by the for eign ministers of Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France. The talks ended without visible progress. Russia denies Ukrainian and Western claims that it is supplying the rebels with troops and equipment, but Western ofcials and NATO insist that satellite photos show Russian military equipment in eastern Ukraine. Eduard Basurin, a top rebel commander in the Donetsk region, said his side had begun a largescale pullback of heavy weapons in line with the peace plan, but the claim could not be veried. A rebel website quoted him as saying about 100 122 mm howitzers would be involved. Associated Press reporters saw about a dozen howitzers moved from Donetsk, the largest rebel-held city, to the town of Ilovaysk 12 miles to the east. That would put them roughly within the 15-mile pullback criterion for weapons of that size. Michael Bociurkiw, a spokesman for the international team monitoring the ghting, said he couldn’t conrm any pullback until receiving monitors’ reports, possibly at the end of the day. The Ukrainian military dismissed the rebel pullback claim and said its forces would not withdraw their weapons until a cease-re takes hold. Ukrainian military spokesman Col. Andriy Lysenko said no Ukrainian moves to withdraw were underway. The rebels “are just regrouping their gangs and are relocating their weapons,” he told reporters. “As soon as there is a cease-re for two days, that is the signal to start a withdrawal.” AP journalists on Tuesday saw Ukrainian self-propelled artillery units and tanks moving toward the government-held town of Artemivsk, away from the area around the key rail hub of Debaltseve. Ukrainian forces abandoned Debaltseve last week after a weekslong rebel siege. British Prime Minister David Cameron on Tuesday said a resur gence of ghting to that level could bring new Western restrictions on Russia. “If there is another Debaltseve it will trigger a round of sanctions that will be materially different to what we have seen before,” Cameron told a parliamentary committee.Ukraine disputes rebel pullback claim adno=491639 Luxury For Less.2015 LINCOLN MKCZT A_#5LFUJ1995736 MO.

(AP) — A Massachusetts man has found a way to profit from the several feet of snow in his yard: He’s shipping it to people in warmer climates for the bargain price of $89 for 6 pounds. Kyle Waring, of Manchester-bythe-Sea, got the idea while shoveling snow earlier this winter and launched ShipSnowYo. com. At first he shipped 16.9-ounce snow-filled bottles for $19.99, but he found the snow melted by the time it arrived at its destination. So he came up with a new plan, selling 6 pounds at a time. He tells even if the snow melts a little by the time it arrives, the package can still make 10 to 15 snowballs. He’s also started offering 10-pound packages for $119. He says he’ll keep selling until people stop ordering.ODD NEWS Massachusetts man selling, shipping snow largely modeled on Common Core. Scott, saying that too much testing is going on in Florida’s public schools, issued an executive order that let Education Commissioner Pam Stewart cancel the test. But the governor’s decision prompted top ofcials in Florida’s teacher union to say that Scott needed to take even more action. Andy Ford, president of the Florida Education Association, said the state should put on hold all sanctions now associated with the state’s A-to-F school grading system, including ones that prevent third-graders who fail the state’s standardized tests from being promoted to the fourth grade. Ford said the state should suspend the sanctions because Florida is transitioning to new tests this spring that have never been used before. The bulk of the new tests is also being given on computers, which has prompted fears that some school districts may not be ready to handle the tens of thousands of students who will need to be online. “I don’t think the gover nor has gone far enough,” Ford said. “The tests are making life decisions for human beings ... and we don’t know if the tests that we are using are accurate. Are they fair? Does the question really judge my knowledge or is it my motor skills in using a mouse?” Scott, who met Tuesday with each school district’s “Teacher of the Year,” said he would not support suspending the entire grading system. He expressed optimism that the state’s students would do well on the new tests. “I believe in measurement. I believe in accountability. But I think what we have done is a step in the right direction,” Scott told reporters after the twohour meeting. “When we measure something, there’s a greater chance that we are going to take it seriously and we are going to improve.” While campaigning for re-election last fall, Scott called for an investigation into the amount of testing done in state schools. After compiling information submitted to the state by the state’s 67 school districts, Commissioner Stewart found that the time dedicated to state-mandated testing has gone up in several grades but not every grade. The amount of testing for 10th-graders, for example, dropped from nearly 10 hours in 2007 to four-and-a-half hours this school year. But the inquiry found that testing rose sharply in this school year over the one that ended last summer. Florida rst expanded the use of high-stakes standardized tests in grades 3 through 10 as part of changes pushed into law by Bush. But over the years more tests have been added — including end-of-course exams in subjects such as algebra, geometry and United States history.TESTFROM PAGE 1 McConnell, R-Ky., said as his party struggled to escape a political predicament of their own making involving an agency with major anti-terror ism responsibilities. McConnell said he did not know how the Republican-controlled House would respond if a stand-alone spending bill passed the Senate. Underscoring the realities of divided government, Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada initially said he wouldn’t agree to the proposal unless it had the backing of House Speaker John Boehner, in a sign it would be likely to clear the House. With many House Republicans still returning to Washington after a weeklong vacation, Boehner’s ofce issued a statement that neither accepted nor rejected the proposal McConnell outlined after weeks of gridlock. “The speaker has been clear: The House has acted, and now Senate Democrats need to stop hiding. Will they continue to block funding for the Department of Homeland Security or not?” said Boehner spokesman Michael Steel. Even in the Senate, McConnell’s plan had its GOP critics. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a tea party favorite and potential 2016 presidential contender, called it a mistake. “Congress is obliged to use every constitutional check and balance we have to rein in President Obama’s lawlessness,” he said in a statement. Senate Republican ofcials said McConnell’s offer of a vote on a stand-alone funding bill also envisions a vote on a separate measure to repeal a directive from Obama last fall that shields about 4 million immigrants from depor tation even though they live in the United States illegally. That measure would almost certainly fail in the Senate at the hands of Democrats. At the same time, the proposal would eliminate an attempt by the House to repeal an earlier presidential order that allows tens of thousands of immigrants to remain in the country if they were brought here illegally as youngsters by their parents. Ofcials said Boehner’s ofce had been informed of McConnell’s plans before they were made public.HOMELANDFROM PAGE 1 been placed on the storm drain to prevent other manatees from swimming into it.

The militants struck near the town of Tal Tamr in Hassakeh province, an area predominated by Assyrian Christians. Most of the captives came from Tal Shamiram and some from Tal Hurmiz. Nuri Kino, the head of a group called A Demand For Action, said between 70 and 100 Assyrians were taken captive. About 3,000 people ed and have sought refuge in the cities of Hassakeh and Qamishli, he said, adding that his activist group based its information on conver sations with villagers who ed the attack and their relatives. His group focuses on religious minorities in the Middle East. “Have they been slaughtered? Are they still alive? We’re searching for any news,” said an Assyrian Christian woman from Tal Shamiram who now lives in Beirut. The woman said she has been trying to nd out what has become of her parents, her brother and his wife and their children, but couldn’t reach anyone in the village. “I feel so helpless, I cannot do anything for them but pray,” she said, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of endangering relatives believed to be held by the militants. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which also reported the abductions, put the number of Christians held by the Islamic State group at 90. The Observatory relies on a network of activists inside Syria. Both groups said that most of the captives come from Tal Shamiram, located some 85 kilometers (50 miles) southwest of the provincial capital of Qamishli, and nearby Tal Hurmiz. At least four civilians, including a 17-year-old, were killed in clashes later Monday, a relative of one of the victims said on condition of anonymity. The extremists could use the Assyrian captives to try to arrange a prisoner swap with the Kurdish militias it is battling in northeastern Syria. Last year, IS militants abducted more than 150 Kurdish boys and held them in a school in Aleppo province where they subjected them to daily instruction on militant ideology for five months before releasing them in batches. The group has also released Turkish truck drivers and diplomats after holding them for months. It was not known whether a prisoner deal was struck in those instances. Hassakeh province is strategically important because it borders Turkey and areas controlled by IS in Iraq. Kurdish militiamen from the People’s Protection Units, or YPG, backed by the coalition airstrikes, have made advances in the province in a new offensive launched this week. Heavy fighting broke out in the province Monday as Kurdish fighters and IS militants battled for control of villages near the Iraqi and Turkish borders. The Kurds have been one of the most effective foes of IS, a reputation they burnished in recent months by repelling an assault by the extremists on the town of Kobani on the Turkish border. The coalition carried out hundreds of air strikes that helped the Kurds break the siege in January.ABDUCTIONFROM PAGE 1 STEPHENVILLE, Texas (AP) — A former Marine was convicted Tuesday in the deaths of the “American Sniper” author and another man at a shooting range two years ago, as jurors rejected defense arguments that he was insane and suffered from psychosis. The trial of Eddie Ray Routh has drawn intense interest, in part because of the blockbuster lm based on former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s memoir about his four tours in Iraq. Since prosecutors didn’t seek the death penalty in the capital murder case, the 27-year-old receives an automatic life sentence without parole in the deaths of Kyle and Kyle’s friend, Chad Littleeld. The prosecution painted Routh as a troubled drug user who knew right from wrong, despite any mental illnesses. While trial testimony and evidence often included Routh making odd statements and referring to insanity, he also confessed several times, apologized for the crimes and tried to evade police. Criminal law experts said the verdict hinged on whether the defense could prove Routh was insane and did not know the killings were wrong at the time they were committed. Jurors had three options: nd Routh guilty of capital murder, nd him not guilty, or nd him not guilty by reason of insanity. If found not guilty by reason of insanity, the court could have initiated proceedings to have him committed to a state mental hospital. Kyle and Littleeld had taken Routh to the shooting range at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort on Feb. 2, 2013, after Routh’s mother asked Kyle to help her troubled son. Family members say Routh suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder from serving in Iraq and in Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake. A forensic psychologist testied for prosecutors that Routh was not legally insane and suggested he may have gotten some of his ideas from television. Dr. Randall Price said Routh had a paranoid disorder made worse by his use of alcohol and marijuana, calling his condition “cannabis-induced psychosis.” Defense attorneys noted that Kyle had described Routh as “straight-up nuts” in a text message to Littleeld as they drove to the luxury resort. Among evidence entered by prosecutors was a recorded phone call between Routh and a reporter from The New Yorker magazine in which Routh said he was annoyed Littleeld wasn’t shooting, but instead seemed to be watching him. “Are you gonna shoot? Are you gonna shoot? It’s a shooting sport. You shoot,” Routh said in the phone call. “That’s what got me all riled up.”Man convicted in ‘American Sniper’ killings AP PHOTOFormer Marine Cpl. Eddie Ray Routh, center, enters the court for his capital murder trial at the Erath County, Donald R. Jones Justice Center in Stephenville, Texas, on Tuesday. PHOENIX (AP) — The prosecutor at the Jodi Arias sentencing retrial launched his closing arguments Tuesday by repeatedly showing jurors gruesome crime-scene photos of the victim’s slit throat. The images were a counterpoint to the happy photos of Arias that her attorney displayed in arguing there was more to her life than her actions in the 2008 killing of her former boyfriend, Travis Alexander. Prosecutor Juan Martinez called Arias dishonest, questioned her claim that she’s remorseful for having killed her boyfriend, and tried to minimize the role her psychological problems played in the case. “It doesn’t provide an excuse,” said Martinez, who later asked jurors to sentence Arias to death. The trial will resume Wednesday when a lawyer for Arias is expected to make a nal plea to the jury. Arias was convicted in 2013 of murdering Alexander, but her rst jury deadlocked on her punishment. The jury that has been hearing testimony since mid-October will decide whether to sentence her to life in prison or death. Prosecutors said Arias attacked Alexander in a jealous rage after he wanted to end their affair and planned a trip to Mexico with another woman. Arias has acknowledged killing Alexander but said it was self-defense.Photos take center stage as Arias case nears end 46' r,(on mg deg)hhhdop


The Sun /Wednesday, February 25, 2015 WIRE Page 5 STATE NEWS MIAMI (AP) — George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin in a 2012 confrontation with the teenager, will not face federal charges, the Justice Department said Tuesday. The decision, announced in the waning days of Attorney General Eric Holder’s tenure, resolves a case that focused public attention on self-defense gun laws and became a ashpoint in the national conversation about race two years before the Ferguson, Mo., police shooting. Zimmerman has maintained that he acted in self-defense when he shot the 17-yearold Martin during a confrontation inside a gated community in Sanford, Fla., just outside Orlando. Martin, who was black, was unarmed when he was killed. Zimmerman identies himself as Hispanic. Once Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder by a state jury in July 2013, Martin’s family turned to the federal investigation in nal hopes that he would be held accountable for the shooting. That probe focused on whether the killing could be charged as a federal hate crime and on whether Zimmerman willfully deprived Martin of his civil rights, a difficult legal standard to meet. But Justice Department officials said they ultimately determined there was insufficient evidence to prove Zimmerman killed the teenager on account of his race. “Our decision not to pursue federal charges does not condone the shooting that resulted in the death of Trayvon Martin and is based solely on the high legal standard applicable to these cases,” Vanita Gupta, the Justice Department’s top civil rights ofcial, said in a statement announcing the decision. Zimmerman’s attor ney, Don West, was on a ight and couldn’t immediately comment on the decision. A call to Zimmerman’s cellphone went directly to voicemail. Martin’s parents were too distraught after their meeting in Miami with Justice Department ofcials to speak with reporters, said their attorney Ben Crump, who called the decision a “bitter pill to swallow” even though it was expected. “What they told his family and I was that because Trayvon wasn’t able to tell us his version of events, there was a lack of evidence to bring the charges. That’s the tragedy,” Crump said.Justice Dept.: No federal charges in Trayvon Martin death ZIMMERMAN TALLAHASSEE (AP) — This was supposed to be a year of budgetary plenty in Tallahassee. Florida’s gradually rebounding economy is helping swell the state’s bank accounts and Republican Gov. Rick Scott has grand plans to spend it on boosting school spending and slashing taxes and fees by hundreds of millions of dollars. Initially, it appeared legislators would accept many of Scott’s spending proposals during the 60-day session that starts next week. But the cheerful optimism GOP legislative leaders have shown recently is being replaced by the prospect of another round of bruising budget battles. There are several reasons behind the cautious attitude. One of them is the likely loss of more than $1 billion in federal money the state has been receiving to pay hospitals that treat the poor and uninsured. Legislators could piece together a way to replace the money, but that may make it hard to go along with some items on Scott’s wish list. “There’s a possibility that everyone is going to have to scale back their demands ... based upon what we find out over the next 60 days,” said Sen. Tom Lee, a Brandon Republican and the Senate’s main budget writer. During a brutal re-election campaign, Scott made a series of promises to voters. He pledged to cut taxes by $1 billion over the coming two years, while still spending a record amount on public school students and setting aside more for environmental programs. In late January, the governor rolled out a budget that stuck to those promises. Scott asked legislators to cut taxes by nearly $700 million, including proposals to cut deeply the taxes now charged on cellphone and cable TV bills as well as exempting college textbooks from state and local sales taxes.Scott may find it tough getting tax cut plans passed | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATEFGCU to go smoke-free in 2016 FORT MYERS (NewsPress) — FGCU President Wilson Bradshaw announced Tuesday that he plans to fully implement a smoke and tobacco-free campus by summer 2016. “As you are aware, many other public institutions in Florida and across the country have moved in this direction,” Bradshaw wrote in a memo to faculty and staff. Bradshaw wrote that a committee would oversee the effort and develop marketing materials about the effort.Officer probed after slapping homeless manFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) — Police have opened a criminal investigation into an ofcer who was videotaped pushing and slapping a homeless man at a bus terminal in downtown Fort Lauderdale — a city that made national headlines for its ban on feeding homeless people in some public areas. In the video, Ofcer Victor Ramirez confronts a man who had been sleeping on a bench inside the open-air terminal. Ramirez shoves the man to the ground, then slaps him hard in the face and handcuffs him. “I tell you what to do, you’re going to do it — it’s just that simple,” Ramirez tells Bruce Laclair, 58. “What do you think is going to happen? What do you think is going to happen? I didn’t want to take you to jail.” The video, apparently taken by a man at the bus terminal and provided to a local television station, appeared on YouTube shortly after the Sunday incident.Boat hits Tampa area restaurantTAMPA (AP) — Two people were injured when a 39-foot boat crashed into a restaurant near Tampa. Investigators say the boaters told them they got lost in thick fog and didn’t realize they were close to land Monday afternoon. The boat crashed into the Sunset Grill about 5 p.m., causing part of the restaurant’s roof to collapse. No one inside the restaurant was injured. Hillsborough County Fire Rescue ofcials say the building was evacuated. One person on the boat was taken to the hospital. Another person drove himself to get treatment. Ofcials say the injuries were not thought to be life-threatening. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating.

Everyone needs a little pocket money. It’s probably not going to throw you off too much if you put $10 or $20 in there. But $100 or $200? That’s a bit much when you’re scrimping, saving and supposedly working hard to get out of debt. Think of it as a safety valve, Aurora. Everyone needs a break and a little fun now and then. Whether it’s grabbing lunch out, or going to a movie once in a while, you need to relax and let off a little steam. Just make it part of your regular monthly budget, and stick to the amount. Little things like this will help keep your total money makeover moving in the right direction without wearing you out! — DaveIt’s a better idea to pre-planDear Dave: My wife passed away last year, and she was just 43 years old. I paid cash for the funeral and all the arrangements. Now, I’m getting solicitations from the funeral home, wanting me to prepay my own funeral. I’m 45 years old. Is this a good idea? — Dave Dear Dave: God bless you and your family. I’m so sorry you have to go through this, but I’m glad to hear you were in good enough shape financially to handle the burden. That means you were both very wise with your money. My advice is to preplan, but don’t prepay. As you discovered, having to make important decisions in the midst of that kind of grief is a hard thing to do. Sometimes, people are so emotional during times like these that they make bad decisions. So, pre-planning and making selections ahead of time is a great idea. But it’s never a good idea to prepay for this kind of thing, and here’s why. If you live to an average age, for what you’d prepay today at age 45, you could invest the amount, be self-insured for that kind of thing, and in all likelihood have a ton of money sitting there when your time comes. Events like this make you realize the need for proper planning, but don’t ever prepay them. Lots of people in the funeral industry don’t like me for this stance, but that’s just because they make lots of money on prepayment plans. — Dave Follow Dave Ramsey on Twitter at @DaveRamsey and on the Web at dave about shedding debt?Dave Ramsey How does junkware get on our computer? We have antivirus software, popup blockers, rewalls and other third-party software installed that supposedly keeps our binary buddies clean and running in top condition. These software tools are logical and know exactly what to look for and how to stop it. So where is the weak link? Could it be us? Are we the culprits who override the mechanical and tell our algorithmic bodyguards to allow something bad to reside in our beeping box? Never, say we, but Most problems start because we don’t understand the differ ence between Search and a website address. For example, “Bits and Bytes” is a search term, while www.bitsand is an address specic to a place in the World Wide Web (the “www” in a Web address). If we open a Web browser — such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and others — and type in a search term, we will be shown pages of potential locations on the Web that might be the one we are looking for. If we type in an address, it will not show us any pages of results, but will take us directly to the page we are trying to reach. Here is where the confusion starts. There are Search elds, and there is an address eld called the Universal Resource Locater, or URL. If we type a Web address in the URL, it will take us to the website. If we type search terms, such as Picasa, it will act as a search eld and show us a list of possibilities. The Search eld operates slightly differently in that it will treat a Web address, www.bitsand, exactly the same as a search term, and will display pages of results that may or may not be what we were trying to reach. Unfortunately, should we pick the wrong one, we may end up with nas ty software on our digital domestique. (Martha, my head hurts. Where are the pictures!) See the screen-shot pictures running with this column for specic examples. The URL is found at the top of the Web browser window, and Search elds are found just below in a toolbar or in the body of a page itself. The address bar will take you there; the search eld will offer the fork in the road. Court Nederveld owns his own computer consulting and x-it service — Bits, Bytes & Chips Computer Services.

The Dow Jones industrial average and Standard & Poor’s 500 index delivered new highs Tuesday, beating marks they set last week. The Nasdaq composite also built on its gains for the year, nishing higher for the 10th day in a row. The latest milestones came as investors liked what they heard from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, who told Congress the central bank would be patient about raising interest rates as the economy improves. “Markets had been very focused on the Yellen testimony and wanted to see if there was going to be any change in the outlook for the rst Fed rate hike,” said David Lefkowitz, senior equity strategist for UBS Wealth Management Research. “The short answer to that is, not really. The Fed is, at a minimum, not going to do anything imminently.” Progress in Greece’s efforts to secure an extension of its rescue program and strong earnings from Home Depot also encouraged traders. The home-improvement retailer was the best performer in the 30-company Dow, rising 4.4 percent. The Dow ended up 92.35 points, or 0.5 percent, to 18,209.19. That’s up 0.4 percent from its most-recent high of 18,140.44 last Friday. The S&P 500 gained 5.82 points, or 0.3 percent, to 2,115.48. The index also reached its previous high of 2,110.30 on Friday. The Nasdaq gained 7.15 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,968.12. The index, which has yet to eclipse its record high from the dot-com era, is now within 81 points of that March 2000 peak. The three main U.S. stock indexes are all up for the year. The S&P 500 has closed at a new high four times this month. The Dow has done it twice. The current bull market, now in its sixth year, has been powered by strong corporate earnings growth and low interest rates, which make stocks more attractive relative to bonds. Yellen’s remarks to Congress on Tuesday suggest that the interest rate part of that dynamic isn’t likely to change right away.US stocks to move to record highs IN `O O

Page 8 WIRE The Sun /Wednesday, February 25, 2015 WORLD NEWS | WORLDYoung child dies of measles in Berlin, 1st death in outbreakBERLIN (AP) — A Berlin hospital says an 18-monthold boy has died of measles amid an outbreak of the disease in the German capital. The Charite hospital said Tuesday that an autopsy on the child, who wasn’t inoculated against measles, showed that he had another disease as well, but it wouldn’t have led to his death without the measles infection. It’s the rst known death in an outbreak that has seen Berlin record more than 570 cases over recent months. Ofcials believe the outbreak began with a child asylum-seeker from Bosnia. Health Minister Hermann Groehe called on Monday for an increased effort to ensure that children are vaccinated. He said that “if that doesn’t succeed, an obligation to vaccinate isn’t a taboo,” but it is not currently on the agenda.Multiple drones spotted over Paris landmarksPARIS (AP) — At least ve drones ew over the Eiffel Tower, the U.S. Embassy and other Paris landmarks overnight, authorities said Tuesday. It was the most audacious of several mysterious drone overights around France in recent months. An investigation is underway into who was operating the latest drones buzzing over Paris, and why. Such ights are banned over Paris skies. The drones ew in three stages while the capital was under darkness, said Paris prosecutors’ spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre. First, one was spotted above the U.S. Embassy, then one at the Eiffel Tower, and then later drones were spotted over the Louvre Museum in central Paris, the Bastille monument to the French Revolution in eastern Paris, the Montparnasse tower in southern Paris, and the Interior Ministry headquarters, she said.Lithuania restores compulsory military serviceVILNIUS, Lithuania (AP) — Lithuania has decided to restore compul sory military service for young men as tensions in Ukraine continue to worry the small Baltic nation. After a meeting of military leaders and top government ofcials, President Dalia Grybauskaite said Tuesday the measure was necessary because of “growing aggression” in Ukraine. Military ofcials said Lithuania will reinstate national service for ve years starting in September, when it will enlist some 3,000 men, ages 19 to 27. They will serve for nine months. Gen. Jonas Vytautas, the defense chief, says a lack of soldiers posed a “real threat” to national security. Lithuania, like its Baltic neighbors Latvia and Estonia, was occupied for ve decades by the Soviet Union before regaining independence in 1991.Nigeria bombers kill at least 27KANO (Bloomberg) — At least 27 people died in Nigeria after bombers set off explosives on Tuesday at bus stations in the north’s largest city, Kano, and the northeastern town of Potiskum. In Kano, at least 10 peo ple were killed after two suicide bombers boarded a bus at Wudil Junction 19 miles from the city center and set off their bombs as they got off at Kano Line station, the state’s police spokesman Magaji Musa Majia said by phone. Earlier in Potiskum, a bomber detonated explosives at a bus station after pretending to be a passenger, Musbahu Mukhtar, a driver who witnessed the blast, said by phone. “I have seen 17 corpses at the Potiskum General Hospital,” he said.Toronto police stumped by mysterious tunnelTORONTO (AP) — Police are asking for the public’s help in trying to determine who built a mysterious under ground tunnel near York University in Toronto. Deputy Chief Mark Saunders said Tuesday the tunnel is 10 meters (10 yards) long and two meters (two yards) high. He said it isn’t near any infrastructure and doesn’t appear to lead anywhere. The chamber was discovered Jan. 14 in a secluded wooded area by a conservation ofcer who spotted a large pile of dirt. Saunders said more than one person with some level of expertise likely built it. Police found plywood wall supports, a gas generator, moisture resistant light bulbs, a sump pump for removing ground water, a wheelbarrow and food and beverage containers. They also found a rosary with a Remembrance Day poppy nailed to a wall. Saunders said there’s nothing to suggest a criminal element. “It’s not your everyday nd,” Saunders said.Italy: Migrant trafficking could be financing terroristsROME (AP) — Italy’s top organized-crime ghter has warned of a danger that international terrorism could help nance itself through migrant trafcking. National Anti-maa Prosecutor Franco Roberti, presenting an annual report on organized crime, told lawmakers in Rome Tuesday that “clandestine immigration and trafcking can feed international terrorism.” He says that scarce cooperation from transit countries and migrants’ homelands meant ringleaders of migrant smuggling go unpunished. Tens of thousands of migrants and refugees, many from Syria, have reached Italy in recent months on cargo ships, shing boats and other vessels used by smugglers. Many boats sail from Libya. Last month, Roberti said in an interview that terrorists could nance themselves through human trafcking as well as arms and drug smuggling.S. Korea: Teenager joined Islamic State groupSEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A teenager who went missing in Turkey last month is probably the rst known South Korean to join the Islamic State group, ofcials said Tuesday. The director of South Korea’s National Intelligence Service, Lee Byung-kee, told legislators in a closed-door meeting that the 18-yearold man is alive in Syria and with an Islamic State group unit that trains combat personnel, opposition lawmaker Kim Kwang Jin said. BRUSSELS (AP) — Greece cleared a major hurdle Tuesday in its ongoing battle to remain solvent as its European creditors approved a four-month extension to its nancial bailout — but the cash-strapped country has much more to do to convince its partners that it deserves longer-term help beyond the summer. The country’s creditors in the 19-country eurozone endorsed Greece’s request for the extension after the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund — the main institutions handling Greece’s loans — provisionally backed a list of reforms that Athens proposed in a letter late Monday. Greece had to draw up the list, which includes measures to combat tax evasion and corruption, to get the bailout extended. Without a nancial lifeline over the coming few months, it faces the possibility of going bankrupt, imposing capital controls and ditching the euro. “The three institutions agreed to start the process with this,” eurogroup president Jeroen Dijsselbloem said on RTL television. “They thought it was a serious enough list and all the countries have just agreed with that in the meeting so we can start.” Tuesday’s deal comes just days before Greece’s 240 billion-euro ($270 billion) bailout program expires and is aimed at buying time for both sides to agree on a longer-term deal to ease the burden of the bailout loans. Greece will, in all likelihood have to negotiate a new nancial agreement with its creditors to see it past June, when big bond repayments are due. The extension must now be approved by some national parliaments, including Germany’s, before midnight Saturday. Up until last Friday’s eurogroup meeting that Greece’s bailout could be extended provided it came up with an acceptable reform package, there had been growing concerns that the country would run out of money and be forced out of the euro. The new left-wing Syriza government was elected to get rid of the austerity measures that accompanied the rescue money that Greece accepted after it was unable to borrow in international markets. It blames the spending cuts and tax rises as well as unfair economic reforms for the damage done to the Greek economy. Despite a return to modest growth in 2014, Greece’s economy is about a quarter smaller than it was in 2008 and unemployment and poverty levels have swelled dramatically.Greece clears key hurdle to extend bailout but doubts remain AP PHOTOGreece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras arrives for a meeting with Greek composer Mikis Theo dorakis in Athens, Tuesday. Caught between its own deant campaign pledges and pressure from creditors, Greece’s left-wing government will deliver a list of reforms Tuesday to debt inspectors for nal approval of extended rescue loans, ocials said. adno=50482311 Chiropractic Health Center D R .

Police in Columbia collected DNA at the scene, but the investigation stalled. Prime-time crime shows would have you believe DNA samples can convict the guilty and clear the innocent, but real life is more complicated. In or der to nd an assailant, the DNA has to match either a previous offender in the FBI’s CODIS database or a sample from one of the victim’s acquaintances. When it doesn’t, the investigation hits a wall. In the South Carolina case, police gathered 150 DNA samples and conducted 200 interviews with likely suspects — and still nothing. Now the Columbia police are experimenting with a new technology that uses tiny amounts of DNA to create a computer-generated illustration of their suspect. Snapshot, a program developed by a Reston, Va., company called Parabon NanoLabs, goes beyond simply listing physical attributes — eye color, hair color, ethnicity and facial features — and creates a 3-D image of what the killer might look like. The police in South Carolina hope that publicly releasing the suspect’s image and description will bring up fresh leads in a stale case. Dabrien “Dabe” Murphy, the senior solutions architect at Parabon, sits in front of three monitors in a little ofce on the fourth oor of an unremarkable ofce building — not exactly the rst place that comes to mind when you think of a lab. With a few keystrokes, Murphy brings up a revolving 3-D image — the back of a head. Another few taps and a face attaches itself along the hairline. The face is a man’s: olive skin, greenish eyes, full lips. Murphy has fed DNA markers, linked to certain facial attributes, into 3-D imaging software to create what he calls a “composition.” It produces a somewhat distorted image where the face meets the rest of the 3-D model. “There’s a little bit of, okay, manual manipulation to make this not look quite so Frankensteined,” Murphy explains. Using his cursor to adjust points and axes in the imaging software, Murphy smooths out the hairline and jaw where the projected face attaches itself to the head. According to the markers Murphy feeds into the imaging software, the man on the screen is of Northwest African ancestry, with hazel or green eyes; black or brown hair; and few or no freckles. This man’s DNA was publicly available, so they’re using it to test their model; they know, from the data included with the DNA, that he is Algerian. The trait predictions come with varying levels of condence; Parabon’s scientists are 73.4 percent sure that their skin color prediction is accurate, but they are 94.7 percent condent in the subject’s eye color. All this from 9.6 nanograms of DNA. That’s less than 0.00000001 grams, an amount so small, it’s hard to compare to anything else. Snapshot combs through a genotype, searching for signicant markers and clusters that might indicate physical attributes and removing unimportant variables. “We start from our million markers and then we cut that down to hundreds or thousands,” says Ellen McRae Greytak, the bioinformatics manager at Parabon. “We’re not specifying ahead of time markers that we think might be important. We’re just searching through the whole genome to nd what is important.” Greytak and others then cross-validate their prediction against DNA samples not included in their model. Greytak and Steven Armentrout, a Parabon founder and chief executive, say they have per formed sample analyses for major metro police departments and federal agencies, and they are working on about a dozen cases. But Parabon’s scientists won’t reveal which agencies they’ve worked with, and they would not show these images and photographs of sample subjects to The Post, citing privacy issues. With technology, DNA could give us a picture of suspect (Washington Post) — It’s long been thought that hippopotamuses share an evolutionary ancestor with whales, but gaps in the fossil record kept scientists from making the connection. In a new study in Nature Communications, researchers report on the discovery of a new species — one identied by 30 million-year-old molars found in Kenya — that reunites the modern hippo with its family tree. Hippos and whales may both have reputations for lolling about in the water, but they’re pretty different. Hippos (which come in two varieties these days, common and pygmy) keep to African lakes. Whales are widespread throughout the world’s oceans. But DNA analysis suggested that these creatures all came from a common ancestor.Hippos: Evolutionary cousins to whales?

That’s the way the third baseman put it when he reported to camp Tuesday afternoon. Longoria still wants the Tampa Bay Rays to contend for the postseason and win a championship, but more importantly, he just wants 2015 to be better than 2014. “That’s the plan coming into spring,” Longoria said. “I was lucky enough to go over and play in Japan this offseason, and I think that experience and just being able to play a little bit more baseball at the end of the year and have some good moments over there kind of sweetened the bitter taste that I had at the end of the year and kind of made me more hungry to get back to work and get ready to Longoria spends winter studying success traitsBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER MLB: Tampa BayThird baseman stresses need to improve on last season FANS GUIDETODAY WHAT: Pitchers and catchers workout WHEN: 9:30 a.m. (Players will be on the fields for about 90 minutes) WHERE: Charlotte Sports Park, Port Charlotte COST: Parking and admission are free TICKET OFFICE HOURS: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. TEAM STORE HOURS: Open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. COMING UP: First full-squad workout is scheduled for Saturday.LONGORIA | 2 Sinopoli turns words into action for BobcatsBy RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONDENTNORTH PORT — The North Port boys basketball team has its own take on how to break from a huddle. “North Port works. North Post wins,” the players and coaches chant in unison before hitting the oor. That mantra has worked pretty well for the Bobcats this season. Once 6-7, they’re 22-7 and riding a 16-game winning streak going into their state seminal against unbeaten Blanche Ely of Pompano Beach at 7 p.m. Friday in Lakeland. It’s the Cougars’ rst appearance in the state nal four. The heart of this band of workaholics is Vic Sinopoli, a 6-foot-2 senior point guard who is averaging 13 points, six rebounds and ve assists. “Two things he brings on the oor are leadership and stability,” said Travis Slanger, who has the Bobcats on the doorstep of a state title in his second year as their coach. “There’s a lot he does that doesn’t show up in the scorebook. He mentors the younger players, helps them understand what it takes to win. He’s the guy we go to late in games to put the ball in his hands. “The hardest thing to replace with Vic is his leadership. In my two years with him, I’ve never had to ask him to work harder.” For Sinopoli, 19, reaching the state nal four in his senior year is the culmination of four years of hard work. “It’s kind of a nale,” he said. “This is farther than we’ve ever gone, so it’s four years of hard work, not just one.” BOYS BASKETBALL: North Port COUNTDOWN TO TIPOFFTODAY: Senior Vic Sinopoli is the stabilizing force in North Port’s run this season.

PREP BASEBALL: Fort Myers 5, Charlotte 2Missed opportunityPUNTA GORDA — In a game lled with errors, Charlotte High School’s mistakes proved the costliest in a 5-2 loss to Fort Myers in District 7A-11 baseball on Tuesday. A throwing error in the sixth led to the winning run and a subsequent mental error gave the Green Wave some cushion as they overcame four errors of their own. Fort Myers (4-2, 1-1) started the winning rally when Ivan Cotto reached on a ineld throwing error. Skyler Wiens singled to put runners at the corners before Grant Boland drove in the run on a elder’s choice. In the seventh, Kenny Buzenius scored from rst on Gabe Trank’s hit-and-run single.

ONLINE : http://www.europeantour. com come back and have a great year for us.” Longoria had one of his worst seasons as a pro last year, batting .253 with 22 home runs and 91 RBIs despite being one of just four players to play in all 162 games. The third baseman admitted he put too much pressure on himself at times during those struggles, trying too hard to carry a team that had trouble scoring runs. Firstyear manager Kevin Cash will tell you he’d rather coach a player who takes “responsibility and ownership” than one who doesn’t. He liked that Longoria took pride in being on the eld every day for the Rays last year, and he scoffed at the idea of the team’s franchise player having a “rebound year” this season. “There’s 90 percent in baseball that would give their left arm to have those numbers,” Cash said. “Evan makes us go. There’s no doubt about it. He makes us good, we want him to be good and, most importantly, he wants to be good and out there every day helping us.” Longoria thinks an offseason of change might help him do that. He spent another winter training in Arizona with a group of 1520 other bigleaguers that included former teammate Jonny Gomes. He also dedicated time to listening to motivational speaker Les Brown and reading books about the science of success such as Matthew Syed’s “Bounce.” “It was good for me to read some of them just to get perspective on what success really is and how different success is dened by everybody — really to try and change up my routine,” Longoria said. “Sometimes you fall into a rut. I have a good routine, but maybe it’s not working anymore, so those books were good for me to kind of say maybe I need to do something different.” That’s why he believes the offseason turnover might be good. While the absences of former manager Joe Maddon and longtime teammates David Price and Ben Zobrist will be difcult to get used to, Longoria said he has condence in new president of baseball operations Matt Silverman’s “ability to put together a good team and see the bigger picture.” If he did, “better” might be just a start for the Rays and their star third baseman. “Everybody here is looking forward to a new year and a fresh start; something that’s differ ent,” Longoria said. “It’s going to be a good year. It’s a young team, a bunch of guys that are eager to learn and get out there and win games, so that’s really what I’m looking forward to.”Contact Josh Vitale at 941 206 1122 or jvitale@sun PAGE 1 ONLINEFor updates during the day from Tampa Bay’s spring training in Port Charlotte, follow us on Twitter @ SunCoastSports and on our blog: SunCoastSportsNow. com Cleveland unveiled a new primary logo, and it’s not much different than the old one. The only NFL team without a logo decal on its helmet, Cleveland’s main logo remains its iconic helmet though with a brighter orange and a brown facemask. The team wanted to recognize its strong tradition with the updated logo and a secondary “Dawg Pound” image, which honors the Browns’ passionate fan base. Browns president Alec Scheiner said the team will unveil its new uniforms on April 14. The only hint Scheiner would provide about the new Nike-designed uniforms is they “will move farther ahead” than the logo. Two legislators inquire about penalties: Two members of Congress asked NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to clarify whether teams can lose draft picks if they do not properly address domestic violence. In a letter sent to Goodell, Sen. Brian Schatz, a Democrat from Hawaii, and Rep. Jackie Speier, a Democrat from California, write: “We urge you to create accountability at all levels of the NFL, particularly among team owners, who have the most direct financial incentives to avoid long-term suspensions and quickly get players back on the field.” The letter notes that the league has docked clubs draft picks in the past. Ravens owner: 2014 was ‘worst’: Although the Ravens went 10-6 and won a playoff game, Baltimore owner Steve Bisciotti said he looks back at 2014 with disdain: “It was my worst year as an owner. I had 14 good years and then I had an absolutely crappy year.” Five Ravens were arrested during the past offseason, including Ray Rice, who was charged with assault last February after punching his then-fiancee in an elevator. Rice was released by the Ravens after a video of the assault became public. Redskins fight trade mark ruling: Lawyers for the Washington Redskins are telling a judge that upholding a federal panel’s decision to cancel the team’s trademarks would infringe upon the team’s free-speech rights. A board of the U.S. Patent And Trademark Office ruled last year that the Redskins’ trademark should be canceled because the name is disparaging to Native Americans. The team is suing in federal court in Alexandria to have the board’s decision overturned. In court papers filed Monday, the team says the law barring registration of disparaging trademarks is unconstitutional under the First Amendment. Around the league: The New York Giants released veteran defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka in a move that clears about $4.8 million of space. The NFL Players Association estimates the new salary cap will rise to $143 million. Cutting Kiwanuka’s contract, which had a year to run at $4.775 million, increased the Giants’ cap space to nearly $23 million. Atlanta re-signed fullback Patrick DiMarco and defensive end Cliff Matthews to extensions. Matthews was an unrestricted free agent. A source disclosed that Carolina informed last season’s starting left tackle Byron Bell that he will not be re-signed. Bell will become an unrestricted free agent in March.Will Browns rue their new hue? NFL NOTEBOOKTeam unveils subtle shade shift in helmetBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — All major league players on 40-man rosters will attend a mandatory education program on domestic violence during spring training. Major League Baseball said Tuesday the sessions, which will be held for every team under an agreement with the players’ association, will be coordinated by San Francisco-based Futures Without Violence. MLB ofcials began meeting with groups about domestic violence last fall after a series of high-prole domestic violence cases involving NFL players. Esta Soler, president of Futures Without Violence, said in September that MLB reached out to her group, which works to prevent domestic and sexual violence and child abuse. Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred said Monday there also will be an education program for players who are not on 40-man rosters. The program begins Thursday with Kansas City, Oakland and the Chicago Cubs. Cubs hire Ramirez and Youkilis: Manny Ramirez and Kevin Youkilis were hired by Chicago Cubs’ executive Theo Epstein, their old boss in Boston. After serving as a player-coach for Triple-A Iowa during the second half of last season, Ramirez was announced as the Cubs’ hitting consultant. Ramirez will work with hitters on the Cubs and at Triple-A. Youkilis was given a part-time job as a scouting and player development consultant. Stanton says he is good to go: Giancarlo Stanton, the Miami Marlins slugger, reported to spring training and said he is fully recovered from the September beaning that ended his 2014 season and took him out of contention for the NL most valuable player award. Stanton signed a $325 million, 13-year contract in November and is ready to mount a comeback from the beaning. He said his eyesight his fine, and he has no pain or fear about facing live pitching. Lawyer says Ernie Banks worth $16,000: Probate judge James G. Riley gave caretaker Regina Rice 30 days to provide details about Ernie Banks’ assets after an attorney for his former caregiver said the Hall of Famer had just $16,000 in assets when he died last month. The hearing was part of a dispute over a will Banks signed in October that gives all his assets to Rice. Banks’ family has said Rice coerced the ailing Banks into signing the will. Around the nation: Alex Rodriguez started his second day of workouts at the New York Yankees’ minor league complex by hugging Chase Headley, the player signed to replace him at third base. Rodriguez said Headley “is an excellent addition to our team.” Asked what they discussed, Rodriguez said: “He had some questions, stuff about hitting, baseball dialogue. That’s my wheel house.

First, the PGA of America really was going to let the players have a voice. Then it quickly became clear the choice was going to be him. Love was introduced Tuesday as U.S. captain for the 2016 matches at Hazeltine. He was captain in 2012 at Medinah when Europe staged the biggest rally by a visiting team. “I’m here with the same goal I had in 2012, but not as the same captain,” Love said. Love was part of an 11-member task force — eight of them former Ryder Cup players — that met twice since December. The agenda for the rst meeting was to dene the role of the captains and assistant captains, and then to throw out names. Among those mentioned were Fred Couples, Steve Stricker and Love. The PGA of America also announced changes to the U.S. team. Qualifying for the top eight players will end after the rst FedEx Cup playoff event (The Barclays) instead of the PGA Championship. Three of the four captain’s picks will be selected after the third playoff event (BMW Championship). The nal pick will be selected after the Tour Championship.AUTO RACINGDavid Ragan, Erik Jones draw Busch ride: David Ragan will drive Kyle Busch’s car in the Sprint Cup Series this weekend at Atlanta, while 18-year-old Erik Jones will drive Busch’s car in the Xfinity Series. Busch broke his right leg and left foot when he crashed head-on into a concrete wall Saturday at Daytona International Speedway. He left the Florida hospital on Tuesday and was transferred to one in Charlotte for further treatment. Ragan will drive the No. 18 Toyota for at least the next several weeks. The move was accommodated by Front Row Motorsports, the team Ragan currently drives for, and sponsor CSX.SKIINGAmericans earn first distance medals: No American woman had ever won a major championship medal in a long distance cross-country skiing race before Tuesday. Minnesota natives Jessie Diggins and Caitlin Gregg made it two in one day in Falun, Sweden. Diggins and Gregg stunned the established favorites by taking silver and bronze in the 10-kilometer freestyle event at the Nordic skiing world championships behind winner Charlotte Kalla of Sweden. Helped by early bib numbers and perfect skis on a day when heavy snow made things hard on the later starters, the duo upstaged the powerful Norwegian team to earn the first American medals of these worlds.SOCCERFIFA recommends late fall World Cup: Seven years before the 2022 World Cup kicks off in the wealthy emirate, FIFA recom mended a break with soccer tradition — moving its marquee tournament to November and December instead of the usual June-July time slot. A FIFA task force meeting in Doha agreed that playing in the cooler months at the end of the year would protect players and fans from 40-degree C (104-degree F) heat in Qatar’s summer. But the decision angered many in Europe because highly profitable leagues will be shut down for several weeks in the middle of their seasons. The EPFL, a group representing Europe’s top leagues, said the World Cup will cause “great damage” to domestic competitions when slotted into the broader Nov. 19-Dec. 23 period suggested by FIFA. adno=482738 WEEKDAYS $69am $64pm Fri. $49 before 8am Mon.-Thurs. $49 before 8:30am $39 after 2pm WEEKENDS $59am $54pm Expires 3/1/15 Accepting $5.00 Off BSC Holdersw w w . b o b c a t t r a i l g c . c o m (941) 429-0500 1350 Bobcat Tr ail North Port, FL 34288 Join now with NO initiation fee BOB TWAY DESIGN COURSE

Page 4 SP The Sun /Wednesday, February 25, 2015 A seat in a classroom at MIT is another culmination of hard work for Sinopoli. He owns a 4.0 grade point average and is ranked No. 1 in a class of 502, so he knows his way around a textbook as well as a basketball court. He plans to play ball at MIT, which competes on the Division III level. Slanger said there were a number of reasons North Port labored through the early part of its schedule. “The rst 14 games, we had 14 different starting lineups,” he said. “The biggest factor from my perspective is their attitude and approach. Guys began accepting their roles. I told them at the time that I thought we were still a nal four team. I’m not sure if all of them believed me, but they still came in and worked hard. “A big factor is they went from playing defense because they had to to playing defense as the cornerstone of the team.” Make no mistake, North Port is not in the nal four by accident. The Bobcats have talent. Sinopoli is joined by fellow seniors Teddy Deas and Malek Barber as key players. “We said at the beginning of the season that we wanted the nal four,” Sinopoli said. “We didn’t want to stop at a district title. That’s what we worked on: winning a state title. Now we’ve tasted blood in the water and we want more.” In Blanche Ely, the Bobcats face an opponent that is 26-0 and nationally ranked. “They’re talented,” Slanger said. “They’re No. 7 in the country for a reason. But we’ll be ready mentally and physically.” Sinopoli said the Bobcats will rely on their defense. “We know they’re good,” he said. “But we’re at a point where we know our defense is the best of the four teams left and we can compete with any of them. “We’re going to go in with condence right from the jump and take it to them.”SINOPOLIFROM PAGE 1SINOPOLI COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Dez Wells scored 26 points, and No. 14 Maryland held off fth-ranked Wisconsin 59-53 Tuesday, ending the Badgers’ 10-game winning streak and ruining their bid to clinch a share of the Big Ten regular-season title. Melo Trimble added 16 points for the second-place Terrapins (23-5, 11-4 Big Ten), who blew an 11-point halftime lead but nished the game with a 12-6 stretch. The victory improved Maryland’s home record to 17-1. The Terrapins are 9-0 in games decided by six points or fewer, and they’ve won their last three by a total of 17 points. No. 20 West Virginia 71, Texas 64: In Morgantown, W.Va., Devin Williams scored 14 points to lead West Virginia. Daxter Miles Jr. and Jonathan Holton added 12 points apiece and Jevon Carter had 10 for West Virginia. Their outside scoring helped the Mountaineers (22-6, 10-5 Big 12) break open a close game in the second half and end a four-game losing streak to the Longhorns (17-11, 6-9). Demarcus Holland scored 14 points and Isaiah Taylor added 13 for Texas. No. 6 Villanova 89, No. 25 Providence 61: In Villanova, Pa., Darrun Hilliard scored 19 of his game-high 24 points in the second half, JayVaughn Pinkston had 16 points and eight rebounds, and Villanova clinched at least a share of its second consecutive Big East regular-season title. Ryan Arcidiacono added 13 points and four assists for the Wildcats (26-2 overall, 13-2 Big East). Tyler Harris led Providence (19-9, 9-6) with 18 points on 8-for-11 shooting. Syracuse 65, No. 9 Notre Dame 60: In South Bend, Ind., B.J. Johnson scored 19 points, Rakeem Christmas added 14 despite being in foul trouble and Syracuse (18-10, 9-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) held ninth-ranked Notre Dame to 35 percent shooting. The Irish (24-5, 12-4) trailed by 10 in the first half and by seven with less than 2 minutes left, but managed to cut the lead to 59-57 when Jerian Grant sank a pair of free throws with 39 seconds remaining. The Orange put the game away with a fastbreak dunk by Johnson and a free throw when he was fouled. N.C. State 58, No. 15 North Carolina 46: In Chapel Hill, N.C., Anthony “Cat” Barber scored 15 points and North Carolina State earned its first road win in the series in a dozen years. Trevor Lacey and Ralston Turner each added 14 points for the Wolfpack (17-11, 8-7 Atlantic Coast Conference), who earned a second marquee road victory this month in pursuit of a fourth straight NCAA tournament trip. N.C. State held the Tar Heels (19-9, 9-6) to their lowest point total in their nearly three-decade run in the Smith Center.

For Charlotte (2-3, 0-2), the evening was lled with blown chances: The Tarpons stranded 11 and committed three errors. Coach Lavell Cudjo said his team has been pressing to make the easy plays. “It’s just baseball. You get oppor tunities to make up for your errors. If you continue to blink and the ball nds you again, you’ll make the same mistakes,” Cudjo said. “I don’t mind errors. They happen. It’s what you do after them.” Fort Myers took a 2-0 lead with a two-out rally in the rst. Trank drew a walk against Christian Faldetta. Ivan Cotton singled to put runners at the corners before Wiens drove in both with a double in the gap in left-center. Charlotte tied it up in the bottom in the bottom half, aided by two errors.

STAFF REPORTManalili scores game-winner in nal minutes AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Kevin Love tied a career-best with eight 3-pointers for 24 points and LeBron James added 19 points and 11 assists as Cleveland rallied in the second half to beat Detroit 102-93 on Tuesday. Love fell one short of teammate J.R. Smith’s record of nine 3-pointers against Detroit. Love missed both his two-point attempts. James nearly had an odd triple-double, turning the ball over nine times, one short of his career high. Kyrie Irving added 18 points for Cleveland, which has won 17 of its last 19 games. Reggie Jackson had 22 points, nine assists and eight rebounds in his second game with Detroit, while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope added 21. Thunder 105, Pacers 92: In Oklahoma City, Russell Westbrook had 20 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, and the Thunder earned their seventh consecutive win. Westbrook claimed his third triple-double of the season and the 11th of his career, despite resting for the fourth quarter. Serge Ibaka had 23 points and 10 rebounds and Enes Kanter added 15 points for the Thunder. Warriors 114, Wizards 107: In Washington, Stephen Curry returned from a one-game absence to lead all scorers with 32, and Klay Thompson added 17 for Golden State. Curry missed Sunday’s loss at Indiana with a sore right foot. He played nearly 34 minutes, hitting 11 of 18 field goal attempts, including five of nine from 3-point range. Marreese Speights added 16 points off the bench for the Warriors, who have won five of six. Washington has lost four straight and nine of 11. Around the league: James surpassed Scottie Pippen on the NBA list for most assists by a forward with a pass to Love for an open 3-pointer against Detroit. Pippen had held the top mark of 6,135 since taking it from John Havlicek in 2004. Cleveland veteran forward Shawn Marion is expected to miss two weeks with a hip injury. Marion, who began the season in Cleveland’s starting lineup, underwent an MRI on Monday and the test revealed a strained left hip. He has been struggling with the injury for the past month. Cleveland signed veteran center Kendrick Perkins, while Detroit filled two empty roster slots by signing D-League star Quincy Miller, and forward Shawne Williams. Los Angeles Lakers guard Ronnie Price will have surgery to remove a bone spur from his right elbow. A timetable for his return will be given after the surgery.

The cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception will begin at 6 p.m. at the historic Gasparilla Inn Beach Club, 445 Gilchrist Ave. in Boca Grande. There also will be an exclusive silent auction of Haitian artwork. As the committee gathers in celebration of their latest project, Hope for Haitians Chairman Ben Scott says he’s prayerfully condent he will get the support needed to complete their fth village of 30 houses. These homes will be built for struggling families living in Gressier, a coastal community located between Port-au-Prince and Leogane. The region suered a devastating blow when the 7.0 magnitude earthquake of 2010 destroyed nearly 50 percent of the area’s buildings. Temporary shelters donated right after the earthquake are deteriorating around the families living inside these structures. “We can’t stop now. Even after ve years, we still have thousands living in tents and these conditions are not good, in fact they are deplorable. That is why we must continue,” said Scott. Boca Grande Committee member Colvin McCrady, who has traveled with Scott and Food For The Poor to Haiti, will address the attendees at the event with his rsthand impression of what he saw in the tent cities two years ago, and why permanent housing is so vitally important in helping the people of Haiti to rebuild their lives.

8 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V February 25 March 3, 2015 MUSEUMNow open at the South Florida Museum in Bradenton is “Ocean Soul,” a traveling exhibit from National Geographic featuring the work of underwater photographer and lifelong diver Brian Skerry. Skerry has shot more than 20 National Geographic features relating to ocean environments and marine conservation. Many of his dives have been in extreme conditions such as below the Arctic or in waters infested with predators. Telling his stories with pictures, Skerry has reported on harp seals eeing commercial hunters in the North Atlantic, damaged coral ecosystems in the South Pacic and more. “Oceans have a major inuence on many of the Earth’s systems such as weather, climate and global temperatures,” SFM curator Matthew Woodside said in a release. “Oceans produce more than half of the oxygen in the atmosphere and absorb most of the carbon from it. We consume more than 170 billion pounds of wild sh and shellsh each year. “I hope this exhibition will inspire people, as it did me, to think a little deeper (pun intended) about our oceans and the life it supports and to simply be amazed at Brian Skerry’s spectacular photography and amazing stories.” The special exhibit will remain on display through June 7. Always awaiting visitors to the SFM is Snooty, thought to be the oldest manatee in the world (65 this past July) and any temporary guests in the 60,000-gallon Parker Manatee Aquarium. Snooty eats a lot of lettuce, tons of it actually, and to be there at feeding time adds to one’s visit. The aquarium is a second-stage rehabilitation facility for manatees awaiting release back into the wild. The rst oor of the museum pays homage to Florida’s marine and mammal inhabitants with artifacts and dioramas, especially pertaining to the Gulf Coast. Bishop Planetarium oers astronomy education plus a multimedia theater used for lms, lectures and digital art performances. The planetarium system was fully replaced in 2013 with brighter and crisper projectors to explore Earth with 200 continually updated satellite datasets and live Bing and OnTerra views of Earth. Seating is stadium-style and there is a digital 25,000-watt Dolby 5.1 surround sound system. The planetarium oers an amazing array of special programs throughout the year. Check the website before you visit to see what is scheduled. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday through April. It is closed the rst Saturday in November, Thanksgiving, Christmas and on New Year’s Day. The museum is closed on Monday during May, June, August, September and October.

February 25 March 3, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 9 ARTAllyn Gallup Contemporary Art gallery presents an exhibition showcasing paintings, drawings and mixed-media works by Craig Rubadoux from March 3 to April 25. The opening reception with the artist is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, March 6 at 1288 N. Palm Ave., Sarasota. “Canvas, paper or any other surface Craig Rubadoux chooses becomes the foundation for a sen tient stream of ideas through a torrent of gestures,” says Mark Ormond, the curator of the exhibit. “Craig Rubadoux responds to many stimuli. It may be a thought, a memory, a word, a person or an animal,” said Ormond. “His approach is his own. It is neither pure realism nor pure abstraction. Rubadoux has, since the beginning of his career, which began in the early s, integrated and fused his ideas about painting that appear to reference both surrealist automatic drawing and biomorphic guration. Through Rubadoux’s coordination of hand and eye responding to creative intuition, we experience the depth of introspection, breadth of perception and height of achievement in expressive inventiveness.” Rubadoux has been described as a “Sarasota master,” and his mastery of gure and form, com position and gesture are plain to see in every work. His paintings are intensely personal glimpses into particular emotions, and he frequently speaks of his work as a journal. Greatly aected by his environment and a love of nature, Rubadoux focuses on line, color, and spatial relationships. While the subject matter varies, it embodies the artist’s personal conception of the world and his feelings and responses to that world. His art is included in many public and private collections, including the Guggenheim Museum, the High Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts and The Ringling. “It takes only a glance to recognize a Rubadoux creation,” says Sheila Moore, the director of Allyn Gallup Contemporary. “His style is inimitable and unmistakable.” Allyn Gallup Contemporary Art was established in 1991. Its founder, Allyn Gallup, had been committed to providing serious art to the community. Through this commitment, the gallery earned the reputation as the leading place in Southwest Florida to view contemporary art. The gallery’s collection includes paintings, sculptures, mixed-media assemblages, works on paper and prints by mid-career artists with well-established exhibition records. The gallery also occasionally showcases works by promising emerging artists.

10 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V February 25 March 3, 2015 FROM THE COVER — FUNKFEST 6One of Charlotte County's best-attended festivals promises to be bigger and even better for 2015. FunkFest 6, a daylong downtown Punta Gorda musical extravaganza, will break down the beat from 2 p.m. until about midnight this Saturday. Organizers say that the expanded size of the festival will include more music and additional vendors. “This is our sixth one, and we wanted to make sure it wasn't going to be the same thing (as previous years),” said Nick Nemec, who directs the annual festival with his father, Matt. “This year, we have seven bands and two stages, and the main stage will be double the size. There will also be better sound on both stages and the light show will be phenomenal.” The musical lineup, which will play alternately on the two stages, includes not only national acts, but also some local talent as well. Tucci is a Southern rock band based in Sarasota, and American Made is locally based and plays songs from bands like the Doobie Brothers and Kid Rock. Brand New Story is a hard rock group from Fort Myers, and Zombie University is a popular top-40 cover band from Punta Gorda. Nemec said that the fth local band, StoryLine, is a fairly new band that is made up of skilled musicians. “They are a hybrid of a couple of local bands, almost like a ‘super group,’” Nemec said. “They specialize in music from artists like Steely Dan, Toto and Journey — late s and early s songs.” Bands on a national level who will be playing at FunkFest this year include Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes, which is a New Orleans funk/rock band that has been featured in both Rolling Stone magazine and USA Today, and of course, the perennial FunkFest headliners Here Come the Mummies (HCTM). Listing their hometown as Memphis, Egypt, HCTM performs a raucous show of funk and rock original music — all while dressed as mummies. “Their show is like nothing you’ve ever seen before, it’s just non-stop energy,” Nemec said. “For the full two hours they play, they never take a break. They're all studio musicians, and their sound onstage is like no other. You have to see it to believe it.” If festival goers need a break from the music during the 10-hour aair, there will be plenty of food and beverage vendors, plus brand-new this year, about 20 additional vendors. The Habana Cigar Lounge, Miche Bags-Faye Perkins and Big Crush Slushies are just a few of the new merchants who will be on-site at the event. “Gypsy junQue is two girls from St. Petersburg who painted their RV in hippie designs,” Nemec said. “They sell vintage-style headbands and jewelry.” And you will not want to miss the 60-foot-long custom trailer that doubles as an Elvis Presley museum. Given the fact that the festival takes place at City Marketplace in downtown Punta Gorda, which is an area with plenty of available free parking, it’s possible to enjoy a full day of great music for a very reasonable price. That’s because Nemec said he and his father set the costs and the vendors for the festival each year with the Punta Gorda community in mind.Break down the beat Saturday at FunkFest 6By DEBBIE FLESSNERLET’S GO CORRESPONDENT IF YOU GO:WHAT: FunkFest 6 WHERE: City Marketplace, 115 Tamiami Trail, downtown Punta Gorda WHEN: from 2 p.m. to about midnight, Saturday, Feb. 28 TICKETS: $17 per person online before the date and $20 per person at the show INFO: PHOTO PROVIDED BY NICK NEMECJohnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes are a New Orleans-based band of classically trained musicians who play a wide variety of musical genres.

14 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V February 25 March 3, 2015 Charlotte County Big Band presents Tribute to Stan KentonThe Charlotte County Big Band presents Swingin’ on Mondays: Tribute to Stan Kenton at 7 p.m., Monday, March 2 at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte. There have been few jazz musicians as consistently controversial as Stan Kenton. Dismissed by purists of various genres while loved by many others, Kenton ranks up there with Chet Baker and Sun Ra as jazz’s top cult gure. He led a succession of highly original bands that often emphasized emotion, power, and advanced harmonies over swing, and this upset listen ers who felt that all big bands should aim to sound like Count Basie. Kenton always had a dierent vision. The Charlotte County Big Band is a traditional Jazz/ Swing Band featuring music made famous by such names as Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and more. The two-hour show is called “Swingin’ on Mondays” featuring ve saxes, four trumpets, four trombones, piano, bass, drums, guitar, and singers. Part of all proceeds will be donated to a designated charity. All seats are reserved. Advance tickets are $12 per person and $11 for Cultural Center members. Day of show price is $13 per person with no discounts.Claudio B. & Company in concert March 3The Cultural Center is proud to present Claudio B. & Company: An Award-winning Concert at 7 p.m., March 3 at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte.

16 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V February 25 March 3, 2015 THEATERThe FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training season continues with “Title of Show” which had a soft opening last week in the Cook Theatre at the FSU Center for the Performing Arts in Sarasota. It plays through March 8. The book was written by Hunter Bell, with music and lyrics by Je Bowen. The Broadway hit was nom inated for a Tony and won an Obie. It was performed by Bowen and Bell. The Conservatory production is directed by New York-based Amanda Friou. The story concerns the New York Musical Theatre Festival. With just three weeks to go, Bell and Bowen are determined to create a truly original work for the competition, eschewing any sort of normal musical creation. Just in time they create a 90-minuite one-act show, which they update regularly as its popularity grows. With Broadway within reach, the pair must decide if their autobiographical creation is truly adequate for the Great White Way. “It’s a story about trying to stay true to yourself and your art, while growing a show from blank paper to Broadway,” Friou said in a release from the Conservatory. “Are you enough? Is making good art enough? Or is success something else entirely? As adults, it’s so easy to get caught up in the logistics and limitations of the professional world, that sometimes we forget what it’s like to be 9 years old and dream pure unfettered dreams. This is a story about rediscovering that freedom and conviction.” Students in the three-year actor training program concentrate on the development of their acting skills although they do have two years of one-on-one vocal training. This show is one of a very few musicals produced by conservatory students in recent years. It is the rst mainstage musical since 2009’s “Three Postcards.” “The second-year company of actors is particularly musically inclined,” said Conservatory director Greg Leaming in a release. “This is a good chance for them to apply their acting technique to a completely new dramatic form. As a musical, it provides a great contrast to the rest of the season and allows us to present a collection of shows that has the broadest possible range of styles. As a piece about young people in theater, it perfectly suits the psyche and characteristics of the second-year company.” Second-year student productions are performed in the 161-seat Cook space. Third-year students work with professional actors on the Mertz Stage to qualify for their Actors Equity Card, although some conservatory students already have the card, which is given to actors who fulll Equity requirements by working in a number of professional productions. For more information, visit Tickets for “Title of Show” are $28 for matinees and $29 for evening performances.

Produced by the theater’s award-winning Education & Outreach Department, the project takes the stories and experiences of community members and transforms them into an engaging theatrical reading of an original script created from local residents’ own words. Each reading will be followed by a community conversation. Admission is free; however, tickets are required. Tickets for Cook Theatre performances are available by visiting Asolo Rep’s Box Oce, located in the lobby of the theatre, 5555 N.

This year’s Faces of Change project, directed by Ria Cooper, Asolo Rep’s Education & Outreach Specialist, is inspired by the theater’s production of Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire’s Good People. Set in South Boston, Good People takes a look at the “haves” and “have-nots,” questions the American Dream, and explores what makes “good people.” Faces of Change explores the same central themes of Good People — class, community, and dicult choices in times of economic hardship — but through stories that have been experienced by local community members and residents. adno=50476761 1 9 T H A N N U A L 19TH ANNUAL r f n fn Bayshore Live Oak Park in Charlotte Harbor P IONEER T RADES & C RAFTS A CTIVE F UN & G AMES T RAILBLAZING E NTERTAINMENT H ANDS -O N A CTIVITIES O LD F ASHIONED F OOD & B EVERAGES t b t tbt bt t t tt t btt tt tt t tt t t t For Directions Call: 941-629-PAST ( 7278) www.CharlotteCountyFL.comF E S T I V A L 2 0 1 5 FESTIVAL 2015 $3 Adults $2 Children (12 & under) PRINT MEDIA SPONSOR: adno=50478592


February 25 March 3, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 17 MUSIC & MOVIESThe Venice Symphony presents the celebrated violinist duo, Angela and Jennifer Chun, at 7:30 p.m., Friday, March 13, and at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, March 14, at the Venice Performing Arts Center, 1 Indian Ave., Venice. The duo will perform Johann Sebastian Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins in D minor, BWV 1043, also known as the “Double Violin Concerto” or “Bach Double.” Tickets are $10 to $28. To purchase tickets, visit www. or call the box oce at 941-207-8822. Celebrated for their brilliant interpretation of new music and collaboration with cut ting-edge contempo rary composers, Angela and Jennifer Chun have forged a niche in the music world as a violin duo of uncommon distinction. The sisters “play with an intensity and sense of purpose that few music lovers can resist,” according to Strings magazine. Their two recordings on the Harmonia Mundi label, “Fantasy” and “Bartk 44 Violin Duos” (which is one of the label’s best-selling releases for 2010), shine a spotlight on the two-violin repertoire, prompting many to agree — “They play this music so well that it makes one regret that composers have not produced more for this winning combination.” (All Music Guide). In addition to playing favorites by Bach and Vivaldi, the sisters have brought to light duo-violin music by more contemporary composers, including Berio, Schnittke, Phillip Glass, Sebastian Currier and Arvo Prt. In 2009, the renowned composer George Tsontakis wrote a gripping, two-violin concerto entitled “Unforgettable” for them, which the Chuns premiered at the Aspen Music Festival to commemo rate the Aspen Institute’s 60th anniversary. In 2013, the sisters performed as guest artists to open the Metropolitan Opera’s U.S. premiere of “Two Boys,” written by the renowned young American composer Nico Muhly (considered by many to be one of the most important composers of his generation) with whom the sisters have collaborated on other projects. The three artists will release an album of his new works on Harmonia Mundi later this year. Angela and Jennifer Chun are string mentors at the Royal Academy of Music in London and make their homes in New York and London. Angela Chun performs on a 1734 Domenico Montagnana and Jennifer on 1662 Nicolo Amati known as “The Goding.” Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins in D minor, BWV 1043, is considered one of Bach’s most famous works; the concerto is characterized by the subtle yet expres sive relationship between the violins throughout the work. The Venice Symphony Orchestra will accompany the duo.

Please include your name and city. READERS ROCK! The Morris brothers — Bill, Dan, and Tristan — have their act together. At a 1950s theme party in Cleveland 30 years ago, they decided to change the name of their group from The Morris Brothers to Eddie and the Edsels, taking the name from that famous underdog, the 1958 Edsel. Since that time, they’ve continued to perform regularly as the Edsels both in Ohio and Florida. “We don't have an Eddie in the group, but that’s okay,” explained Dan. “We thought that the name would catch on, and it did.” All three brothers are committed to music as an occupation, and they clearly enjoy seeing folks dance and have fun while listening to older dance numbers from the s, s, and up. “We have two Las Vegas-style shows and over 300 songs in our repertoire,” said Bill, the spokesman for the group. “We perform six nights a week and choose musical numbers by reading the crowd.” In 2013 Lynn Jarrell, “Cleveland’s Premiere Female vocalist” joined the Edsels as a lead singer. Jarrell, who has been featured in a number of Cleveland’s most popular bands — Raisin’ Cain, Bruno Brothers, and Twist, to name a few — clearly enjoys performing with the multitalented Edsels. “We get along well. All three brothers are cleancut, non-drinking, genuinely friendly guys who respect one another,” Jarrell said. Dan Morris remembered meeting Lynn when, at 18, she lled in as a vocalist during one of their performances in Cleveland. “As a young singer she impressed the entire band with her vocal interpretations,” added Dan. “Finding a singer who is not a prima donna is sometimes di cult, and we couldn’t be happier that Lynn, a genuine talent, agreed to join us as a singer and percussionist during the seven months we spend in Cleveland and the ve months that we spend in Florida.” Jarrell, whose mother played the piano and whose dad performed as a country-western singer and guitar player, sings everything from Etta James to Donna Summer, and is currently taking guitar lessons from Bill Morris. To view, listen to, and learn about The Edsels’ Las Vegas-style shows at Cleveland’s Palace and State Theater, fans may visit their website The group has recorded and performed as co-headliners with Sonny Geraci at the Avalon Center and was also involved in the promotion of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

February 25 March 3, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 19 MUSICFollowing his stellar performance as Flick in The Players production of the musical, “Violet,” Michael Mendez will present an evening of Latin soul music and more at 8 p.m. Monday, March 2 at the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe’s theater. The performance is part of the Troupe’s second annual Young Artist Program, in which troupe members showcase their talents in one-night, one-person shows. “I Love Music” is the title of Mendez’ show and also indicates an import ant aspect of the young man who has enthralled WBTT audiences since his rst appearance on its stage ve seasons ago. Born in the Dominican Republic, the Sarasota resident has performed in WBTT productions of “Five Guys Named Moe,” “Love Sung in the Key of Aretha,” “Blackbird: The Story of Josephine Baker,” “The Fabulous 5,” “Soul Crooners,” “s Jukebox Revue,” as Harry Belafonte in the Troupe’s 2014 hit “Harry and Lena” and, most recently, as Seymour in “Little Shop of Horrors.” The Young Artist Program was designed to give as piring young African-American artists the opportunity to develop and present an original production. The process begins with the submission of a proposal that is reviewed by a committee. If approved, the artist works with WBTT founder Nate Jacobs to develop the presentation. Proceeds from the show are given to the artist to use for additional artistic and profession al development. “This is just one way that our organization furthers its mission of developing young artists,” Jacobs said in a press release. “We feel strongly about investing in the performers who work with us in order to further their performance and career opportunities.” WBTT has mentored several artists in its 15-year-history. Some, including Apphia Campbell and Teresa Stanley, have gone on to work in regional and national companies. Stanley, a featured cast member in “The Color Purple” on Broadway, is currently starring in “Rock of Ages.” Christopher Eisenberg and Alyssa White achieved national acclaim as teenagers. Eisenberg reached the top 48 level of “America’s Got Talent” and White was selected to perform in the Harlem Apollo Theater’s “Best of the Best” show in 2011. The young artist pro gram gives performers a chance in the spotlight. “A one-person show is rigorous for a performer at any level; after successfully executing a Young Artist performance, we expect our artists to be equipped with the tools they need to take their careers to the next level,” WBTT executive director Richard M. Parison, Jr. said in a release about the program. Eisenberg will be featured in the nal Young Artist performance of this season on March 30. The rst show, featuring Leon Pitts, earlier in the season, was a sellout. The Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe’s theater is at 1646 10th Way, Sarasota. Tickets are $26.50 for general admission; VIP tickets, which include reserved seating, are $101.50. Call the box oce at 941-366-1505 or visit www. Michael Mendez performs Latin soul musicBy KIM COOL LET’S GO FEATURES EDITOR The Barbary Coast Dixieland Show Band returns to Venice for the eighth season of the Venice Community Concert Series at Venice Presbyterian Church. Denny Kalgren, one of the series’ promoters and organizers, said this is a group who loves to come here. Judging by the annual sellouts of their concerts, the feeling seems to be mutual. “They love to perform,” he said. They got together in 1967 at Jimmy’s on the Levee in St. Paul, Minn., where they played to standing-room-only crowds every weekend. Imagine six musicians who play 18 instruments. Any one of the group might switch instruments multiple times in one song, much to the delight of viewers — and listeners. This is the one group that has performed every year since the beginning of the concert series, which is nearing the end of its eighth season. The instruments nearly dwarf the six musicians and include percussion, guitar, banjo, bass, sax, clarinet, trombone, trumpet and other horns. The band’s musical ministry began in 1984 when they were invited to perform at a Dixieland-type service at St. James Lutheran Church in Burnsville, Minn. The band was inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame in 2001. The band’s national tour schedule began in January 2002. The Barbary Coast Dixieland Show Band will perform at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 28 at Venice Presbyterian Church, 825 The Rialto, Venice. Tickets are $15. Call 941-488-5525 or visit www.

20 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V February 25 March 3, 2015 DINING OUTWind up Doug Amaral, sit back, and listen to him expound passionately about his food, his vision, his life, his River City Grill, his aection for Punta Gorda, and the renaissance of West Marion Avenue. Amaral owns the celebrated River City Grill on West Marion, entering its 12th year, and its newly minted sibling next door, Italia at River City, which opened last month. It’s been a long life and business journey for Amaral, 54 — proudly “one hundred percent Portuguese” — from Westport, Conn., through Naples, to his home and heart now in Punta Gorda. Through it all, he said, “I’ve followed my vision, my heart, my gut — not my wallet.” That's what led him to River City. Owner of the upscale Mangrove Caf on 5th Avenue in Naples, he came north, he said, looking to branch out into the homebuilding business. He drove along W. Marion, “past all the boarded up buildings,” he said, and his heart kept telling him to abandon the building venture, to go back to his rst love and open what became the River City Grill, the only restaurant on the block. As a graduate of the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., and an executive chef by trade, food, and its preparation, were in his blood. And in today’s health-conscious world, particularly for senior citizens, it’s a quest for food quality. That’s why, he said, he gets his beef, grass-fed, without hormones, locally from Onion River Ranch, produce from local farms and clams from Pine Island. Then there are fresh-packed scallops from New England, and, for Italia, the best cheeses, and “the nest tomatoes in the world” from San Marzona, Italy. “I'm making my vision happen.” Part of that vision is a restaurant nightlife for Punta Gorda, where local lore has it that sidewalks roll up all by themselves as soon as the sun sets. So, Italia is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 10 p.m. until as late as 1 a.m., with a “Mezzanotte Menu” from $7.95 to $13.95 for dishes from bruschetta, spaghetti-stued meat balls, oysters Italia, and personal gourmet pizza. Lunch at River City runs the gamut from soup and a half-sandwich for $7.95, burgers for $9.95, a plethora of sandwiches ranging from $8.95 to $11.95; entrees in the $12.95 to $14.95 range, and daily specials like Caesar salad topped with blackened scallops. The dinner menu is voluminous, including hearthealthy and gluten-free options. Small-plate starters range from a cup of Southern seafood chowder for $4.95, to fried chicken for $8.95, to baked oysters on the half shell for $12.95. Then there are multiple choices from land or sea, anywhere from $13.95 to pan-seared sea scallops for $23.95, and the “Thrill of the Grill” from $15.95 to llet mignon for $29.95. For vegetarians, there’s a choice of a portabello burger for $9.95, or grilled cauliower steak for $16.95. Italia’s dinner menu is chock full of Italian favorites, including calamari, clams Valentino, clams and sausage, mussels marinara, oysters Italia, and prosciutto-wrapped shrimp. Pasta dishes include linguini, clam sauce Italia, scampi Genoa, chivalini and a lasagna roll of beef short ribs. There are seven dierent chicken dishes, as well as pork, steak, and “Back Eddy” cod, Sicilian style. Entrees range generally from $12.95 to $19.95. After Amaral graduated from the Culinary Institute at age 20, he became executive chef at the Ocean Cli Resort, housed in a mansion along “Millionaires’ Row” in Newport, R.I. Then, New England weather, “the kind they’re having there right now,” drove him south in 1994 to oers from the Ritz Carlton in Naples and the Marco Island Hilton. But then he saw a small restaurant on 5th Avenue with 40 seats for sale. “I had a vision,” he said. “Something told me to buy it. My mother thought I was crazy. Years later, I’m still living my vision.” Recalling his success, he smiled broadly and recounted that when he graduated from culinary school and took a week o to lay on the beach, “my father,” he said, “told me I was going to be a bum.” Center City Grill, at 137 West Marion Ave., is open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and for dinner from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and from 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The bar is open from 4:40 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 4:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. The bar at Italia at River City opens at 4:30 p.m., with dinner service from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and a late-night menu from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays.

February 25 March 3, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 21 DINING OUTYou couldn’t ask for a more beautiful setting. The clubhouse at the Heron Creek Golf & Country Club sits on top of a hill, with views of the immaculate golf course, well-appointed residences and a stunning fountain. The elegant structure, opened in May of 2005, is the culmination of years of planning and design, with considerable input from Heron Creek members. It’s hard to argue with claims that it is the nest facility of its kind in North Port and the South Sarasota County area. Members and residents love it, but the really good news is that the club is a semi-private facility with public and guest access. Everyone can take advantage of the ne dining and other services oered at Heron Creek. In addition to breakfast, lunch and dinner, Heron Creek plays host to weddings, celebrations, parties, business meetings and conferences, not to mention three championship-caliber golf courses. The Top of the Green main dining room and Heron’s Roost Grille Room can accommodate about 240 diners. It’s not unusual for the rooms to be lled to be capacity, said Food and Beverage Director Gus Arredondo C.S. That’s especially true for the Signature Sunday Brunch, which is all you’d expect from a rst-class, ne dining establishment. Served from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., it features a prime rib and ham carving sta tion, omelet station, assorted salads featuring shrimp cocktail and smoked salmon, fresh catch of the day, fresh baked bread, eggs Benedict, fresh fruit and vegetables, bacon, sausage and more. All is available for an unbelievable $21.95 per person, half price for kids 4 to 10, and free for kids three and under. “Where can you go for $21.95 and get all these items?” asked Gus. “Most places charge $16 to $18 just for the prime rib. Plus, everybody gets to experience the atmosphere and setting of a ne dining establishment.” Chef Butch Thigpen, whom Gus said was very well known in Southwest Florida, has been with Heron Creek for the last four years. He and his sta create a variety of entrees and side dishes for every meal. “He has an Italian background and makes everything from scratch,” said Catering Director Sara Hartlein. “He bakes his own desserts and focaccia bread. His monthly Italian pasta bar is a huge hit. It sells out fast, so people need to make their reservations early.” You can create your own dish at the pasta station, choosing from three popular types of pasta, sauces and a variety of toppings. There’s also minestrone, Caesar salad, a terric antipasto bar, grilled vegetables, cold cuts and cheese, freshly baked garlic bread, and desserts including chocolate cannoli and tiramisu. Heron Creek oers a Thursday night Birthday Blast/Prime Rib Night special. In the month of your birthday, you can receive a complimentary Thursday night prime rib dinner when you come with friends. In addition to oering rst-class cuisine at reason able prices, Heron Creek oers rst-rate service. Gus said the sta members make a concerted eort to personalize their service. “Our training is ongoing,” he said. “We work closely with the sta every day, all day long.” While Sara has been with Heron Creek about 10 years, Gus is a relative newcomer, having been there just four months in February. He previously spent 18 years at the Bonita Bay Club in Bonita Springs. He is designated a Certied Sommelier (which accounts for the “C.S.” initials after his name), having earned the title from the international Court of Master Sommeliers. For Gus, wine is a passion. He created and stocked the Heron Creek wine cellar with selections from around the world. He recently returned from a trip to Argentina and Chile, bringing back recommendations to further expand the club’s wine list. Between Fort Myers and Venice, Heron Creek is the place to go for wine enthusiasts. To experience Gus’ wine recommendations as well as all the ne food served at Heron Creek, reserva tions are highly recommended, particularly for the Signature Sunday Brunch, Prime Rib Night and Italian Pasta Bar. Call 941-240-5100 for a table. Heron Creek Golf and Country Club is located o Sumter Boulevard in North Port, at 5301 Heron Creek Boulevard. The Courtside Caf is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Signature Sunday Brunch is served from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Main Dining Room. Dinner is served from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, with happy hour from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The club describes the dress code as country club casual.

22 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V February 25 March 3, 2015 DINING OUT Dining Out With Jim Kaletta, and his wife Heidi, dine at Tortuga’s Restaurant every week. “My wife loves sh, especially the grouper,” he said. “I like the shrimp quesadilla. We’ve had various sh dishes and they’re all good.”Harbor Seafood and Tortuga’s Restaurant go together like sh and chipsMaralee McGowen and her anc Tony Millan opened Harbor Seafood in 2005 and relocated to Punta Gorda in 2007. Two years ago, they launched the restaurant side of the business and, according to McGowen, “the people have been coming ever since.” “My anc has been in the sh business all his life, he’s very knowledgeable,” McGowen said. “He gets the sh; I llet them, and cook them.” McGowen said the sh in their display case is what they serve on the restaurant side. One of the most popular is amberjack, an extra-lean sh whose meat is white with a mild avor. Another item that has been recently added to the menu is wahoo, whose meat is similar to mackerel. They also sell snapper, Faroe Island salmon, swordsh, Atlantic cod, yellown tuna, scallops and the catch of the day. Tortuga’s also oers a “lobster week,” McGowen said, where dinners range from $25 to $29 for a 1 to 11-pound lobster. Depending upon the season, they get them from either Maine or Canada. “Everything here is fresh,” McGowen said. “We get our vegetables from Sunfresh Produce out of Englewood. Nino’s Bakery provides the bread, rolls and our dairy products are from Sarasota — all the things that make a dierence.” “We have hamburgers, salads and pasta dishes as well,” McGowen said. “It’s a good place for people to come who don’t eat seafood. That’s what sets us apart from other seafood restaurants in Charlotte County.” Originally from Bualo, N.Y., Kaletta’s childhood dream was to become a pilot. He not only achieved that, but he became, and remains, a major contributor to aviation technology and leadership in Charlotte County.From Civil Air Patrol to aviation company presidentAt the age of 12, Kaletta joined the Civil Air Patrol as a cadet. He soloed when he was 16 and received his private pilot certicate exactly one year later. When he turned 18, he qualied on multi-engine, commercial aircraft and instrument ying. Kaletta said he was a pilot for United Airlines for a few years. “The experience was great,” he said, “but the pay was miserable.” He went to work for Scott Aviation, a Bualobased aviation company, and climbed the ladder to become president. During his tenure, sales rose dramatically from $3 million to $125 million. He received ratings in helicopters, Lear jets, a British 125-400 and 700 aircraft, along with logging over 10,000 pilot-in-command hours. Kaletta secured a U.S. Coast Guard Commercial Captain’s license for ships up to 200 tons. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree, followed by graduate studies in marketing, antitrust trade, specialized training in counterintelligence, labor relations, and leadership skills development. Since moving to Punta Gorda, Kaletta has volun teered as an Experimental Aircraft Association Young Eagles pilot and as a Federal Aviation Administration Safety Team member in both Bualo and Florida. In August 2005, the Federal Aviation Administration presented to him The Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award. To earn this honor, a pilot must have 50 years of ying with no safety violations. To date, less than 3,000 pilots have been named to the honor roll. Kaletta said he served as commander of Charlotte County Composite Squadron FL-051 for seven years. Here, he and his sta are able to pass on their experience to children who are interested in a career in aviation. In November 2012, Kaletta was appointed the dep uty wing commander of Group 5, which encompasses 10 squadrons from Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, Lee, Manatee, and Sarasota counties. With their four aircraft, three vans, and communications equipment, the Group can literally become the eyes and ears of Charlotte County in the wake of a hurricane. “Before a hurricane, we will take photos through special windows from one of our planes,” Kaletta said. “We have certied photographers that will also take photos after a storm, so we can assess the damage.” A few years back, the squadron was joined by Naples, Sarasota and Marco, and federal and state agencies, to participate in a three-day mock drill to train emergency managers for the upcoming hurricane season. It was a worst-case scenario involving two ctitious storms, “Hurricane Lay” and “Hurricane Kirk,” that were supposed to make landfall somewhere in Florida. Jim, who coordinated Group 5 during the training, said the state CAPs had nearly 79 hours of ight time and 13 aircraft had 51 sorties that took more than 1,700 photographs. “About 150 out of the 328 senior members of FL-051 are pilots,” he said. “The rest play equally important roles as radio operators, observers, scanners, and administrators. This is a great squadron. What makes it so satisfying for me is being able to watch these kids grow to carry on the legacy.”If you goTortuga’s Seafood Restaurant is located at 2705 Tamiami Trail, Towles Plaza, Punta Gorda.

February 25 March 3, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 23 DINING OUTGulf View — the name says it all! The Gulf View Grill faces beautiful Englewood Beach and oers spectacular waterfront views from ve locations — the Down Under Bar, the Upstairs Open Air Deck, the Upstairs Circular Bar, spacious (yet cozy) dining areas and a huge, private party/banquet facility. If you love watching brilliant sunsets in a romantic setting, you’ll love the Upstairs Dining Room. Nautical wall murals painted with soft aqua, pink and light tan tones create a peaceful eect in private nook areas. At the circular bar, a tropical sh tank abounds with ashy sh and colorful plaques in this crowd-friendly space reect a more whimsical theme. For over 20 years, the Elmore family has oered area residents and visitors a delightful array of tropical drinks, tasty bar bites, innovative lunches, elegant dinners and decadent desserts at their Gulf View Grill. “My wife, Margie, and I have lived in the Englewood area for 31 years, but 20 years ago, we bought Beaches, an open-air pizza place in this same location,” explained restaurant owner Keyes Elmore. “Four years after operating Beaches, we completely rebuilt and renamed the restaurant The Gulf View Grill. Ten years ago, we added our present banquet facility, the Sunset Room, where we host holiday parties throughout the year. Customers are encour aged to make early reservations for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve, Easter, Mother’s Day, or Valentine’s Day,” added Elmore. The banquet room overlooking the Gulf of Mexico is a favorite location for hosting weddings, rehearsal dinners, anniversary celebrations and private parties. Banquet menus in clude a choice of three or four appetizers, two soups, eight entrees and desserts. To make reservations contact event coordinator Michael Kenney at 941525-4953 or Over the years, Margie Elmore has worked as a bartender, server and pastry chef at their restaurants. “I still bake special occasion cakes or pies for friends and family, but now I keep busy planning menus, answering restaurant emails, and working on the computer,” Margie said. Margie is also a devoted Englewood Area Cancer Foundation board member who arranges fundraising events at the Gulf View Grill. Son, Michael, works as the restaurant’s chef and kitchen manager, while brother, David, acts as food and beverage manager. Margie and Keyes believe that most of their success can be attributed to their excellent sta. “Many employees, including Michael Kenney, have been with us since we owned Beaches,” Margie said. Menu choices at the Gulf View Grill vary from day to day, but as you would expect, seafood items are most popular. Recent Maine vacationers Jon and Diana Westman recommend the Black Grouper ala Grecque or the mahi mahi, oven roasted and topped with a crab and sesame crust, then nished with light garlic butter. Frequent diners Tony Nykodym and his wife, Barbara, enjoy drinks with peel-and-eat shrimp. Meat lovers won’t be disappointed with a choice of Steak Diane or barrel-cut let mignon. A complete menu can be viewed at their website Guests will be happy to hear that Happy Hour at Gulf View Grill lasts all day at the bar with specially priced well drinks, house wines and domestic beer.
