Charlotte SunAND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000 Have you ever found a crumpled $5 bill in a pants pocket or at the bottom of a purse not used for a while? The surprisingly forgotten money stayed where it was until you found it, no matter how long it took. The last Sharon and Irv Forsch remember, they had about $400 in a savings account with Fifth Third Bank in Port Charlotte. “We treated it as a small amount of emergency cash that would have been easily accessible since the bank is within walking distance of our home,” Sharon wrote me. The last activity on the account was in 2009. However, the couple became concerned when they got a letter from Fifth Third informing them that if they didn’t contact the bank, their money would be turned over to the state of Florida. “We went to the bank to nd that fees have periodically been removed from the balance, leaving us with a little over $100,” Sharon said. “Here we thought we had this tiny cushion of cash tucked away, and we did nothing with the account but leave it there.” Sharon and Irv withdrew what remained and learned money forgotten or ignored in a nancial institution is not necessarily going to be there, like that crumbled bill in your purse or pants pocket. That’s because nancial institutions can charge a “dormancy fee” if written in its customer agreement. Fifth Third’s denes inactivity as “no deposit into or withdrawal from the account.” It assesses monthly fees after 12 months of inactivity for a checking account and 36 months for a savings account. This information is provided in a handbook at account opening. That means, with a relatively small balance, dormancy fees can wipe out an account. Under Florida law, after five years of inactivity, the financial institution declares the account “unclaimed,” and turns control of any balance over to the state. Sharon and Irv said they never got any statements showing the dormancy fees and were unable to access their account online, despite asking for Ignoring a bank account is costly PUNTA GORDA — A judge will soon decide whether an accused killer’s rights were violated after a conversation between him and his lawyer was recorded and sent by jail staff to state prosecutors. After arguments from both sides wrapped up late Thursday at the Charlotte County Justice Center, 20th Judicial Circuit Judge George Richards said he’d issue a written ruling. He didn’t specify when. Twentieth Judicial Circuit Assistant Public Defender Toby Oonk, the chief APD in Charlotte, led a motion earlier this month asking the court to dismiss a second-degree murder charge — and charges in two unrelated cases, including armed robbery — against his client Dwayne Johnson. Oonk also had asked the judge, at a minimum, to disqualify the 20th Judicial Circuit State Attorney’s Ofce from trying the cases. Johnson is accused in the fatal shooting of Kello Bonhomme in September. The requests came after Oonk learned a privileged conversation between him and Johnson — who is Judge to go on recordBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERRECORD | 6 SARASOTA — Even at the age of 90, Eugenie Clark — affectionately known as the “Shark Lady” — wasn’t ready to hang up her ippers. “It never stops,” Clark told the Sun about her curiosity for new under standing of sh and sea life. She was celebrating her 90th birthday in May 2012 and still was joining research trips to the Red Sea, Indonesia and elsewhere. Her research is done now. Clark, 92, died Wednesday in her Sarasota home with her family. She reportedly died of nonsmoking-related lung cancer. Her last dive was in 2014 in the Gulf of Aqaba, located in the Red Sea. Her latest research is under review for publication, and she had more than 200 publications over her long career. The loss is particularly felt at Mote Marine Laboratory, where Clark was recognized among its founders. “There was absolutely no one like Genie Clark,” Michael P. Crosby, Mote president and CEO, said. “Her passion for science and her freedom to pur sue that science at Mote continue to inspire us all.” Robert Hueter, director of Mote’s Center for Shark Research, called Clark his senior, mentor, adviser and friend. Even into her 90s, Hueter said Clark’s mind and heart were committed to marine science and research. She also had an ability to relate to anyone who came to her ofce — whether elementary By STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERSHARK | 6PORT CHARLOTTE — Drug Free Charlotte County has made great strides since its beginnings over a decade ago when the county’s high school alcohol use was the highest in the state, but a new annual report shows more challenges ahead. One of the new challenges is reaching out to children at a younger age, said Diane Ramseyer, executive director of the nonprot that has a coalition of community partners. Others include ramping up educational efforts about marijuana and prescription drug abuse, and stepping up their efforts to make sure alcohol use among high school students goes back down. The new annual report was unveiled Thursday at the Charlotte County Public Schools district headquarters in Murdock. A small group of health eld workers, community members, and a law enforcement ofcer attended the meeting. A discussion followed the presentation. Ramseyer presented the new data in two parts. The rst part was the 2014 Social Norms Survey, in which 9,000 Charlotte County middle and high school students were asked whether they’d used drugs, alcohol, marijuana and other drugs in the past 30 days. The second part compared Charlotte County rates to the state average. Findings showed actual rates of use have declined among middle school students across the board compared to the previous year, while there has Anti-drug coalition targets new areas By SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITERANTI-DRUG | 6READER ADVOCATE David MORRISCOLUMNIST PHOTO PROVIDED BY MOTE MARINE LABORATORYAbove: Eugenie “Shark Lady” Clark, Ph.D., studies a shark during the early days of her research.SUN FILE PHOTO BY STEVE REILLYLeft: Mote founder Eugenie Clark, left, and former First Lady Laura Bush were among those who cut the ribbon to a new Mote Marine Laboratory satellite oce in Boca Grande in January 2013. Clark, known as the “Shark Lady,” passed away Wednesday at the age of 92. CORRECTIONS: At the Feb.9 North Port City Commission meeting, regarding the first reading of the amended Neighborhood Commercial Zoning ordinance, Commissioner Linda Yates made a motion to increase the maximum size of business signs in the commercial district from 12 square feet to 24 square feet, which followed the Planning and Zoning Advisory Board’s recommendation. Yates’ motion to accept the P&Z’s recommendation to increase the sign size died due to a lack of a second. A Feb.17 story in some editions of the Sun stated otherwise. A Monday commission meeting again brought up the commercial zoning ordinance. At the end of the discussion, Commissioner Cheryl Cook made an amended motion to include P&Z’s recommendation to increase the sign size, the same recommendation given Feb.9. Yates replied to Cook’s motion saying she supported it, was glad the sign issue was brought back up for consideration, and that she had brought up accepting the P&Z’s recommendation during the prior commission meeting. A story in some editions of Wednesday’s Sun stated otherwise. The family of Patricia Dupuis, who died in December, named “Nic 4 Village Place Leasing LLC” as the defendant in a negligence lawsuit filed this week. The suit and case have no connection to Village Place Health and Rehabilitation Center. The Sun had incorrect information in Thursday’s editions. Snook season opens on the Gulf Coast at midnight Saturday (just before Sunday morning). A story in Thursday’s WaterLine did not specify the time.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, February 27, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Leaders are closer to a decision to turn the abandoned Impac building in Punta Gorda into a southern hub for Western Michigan University and its area alumni, according to Charlotte County Economic Development Director Tom Patton. In fact, the scope of the project also could be expanding beyond the initial plans that largely focused on aviation, Patton said at Wednesday night’s Charlotte County Republican Club meeting at the Isles Yacht Club. Western Michigan University President John Dunn and several of the university’s deans, as well as area alumni, will be in town next week for another round of discussions, Patton said. The talks, rst reported last year by the Sun , have been ongoing, both in Punta Gorda and at the university in Kalamazoo, Mich. Patton said he feels they are getting close to a decision that could signicantly expand the initial plans to establish a student pilot and technician training program involving the university’s College of Aviation, Florida SouthWestern State College and Punta Gorda Airport. He said new programs could involve ne arts and humanities, environmental engineering and medicine, with graduate students working with local physicians on programs to aid the county’s senior citizens, dealing with conditions like vision problems and hearing loss. The aviation program would be an excellent one, Patton said, but not enough, by itself, “to make it work.” A key ingredient in the expanded plans, Patton said, would be the university’s ability to maintain close contact with some 1,500 alumni in Sarasota, Charlotte and Lee counties, and to bring in graduate students “to work with us.” Also, he said, Western Michigan would get the use of the Impac building, “a gorgeous education facility,” without making capital investment. The building, which has been used for education in the past, is located near Fishermen’s Village off Retta Esplanade. The aviation program would feature a twoyear program at Florida SouthWestern, followed by two years at Western Michigan, for a fouryear degree in aviation technology, as well as a pilot training program. Salaries in the aviation technology eld, Patton said, range from $60,000 to $120,000 a year. The pilot training program would need a hangar at the airport, Patton said, but the Impac building could house ight simulators. The program could have up to 50 pilots training in a 14-month program by next summer. “We need more pilots,” Patton said. The area would benet from the economic impact of Western Michigan staff living in the area — renting or buying, shopping and contributing to tax rolls, he said. Patton said next week’s Western Michigan visit will be a signicant one for moving the project forward: “We’re getting closer and closer. We’re hoping for a decision. It would be a home run for us.” He also indicated a solution for the Murdock Village development problem is getting closer. “All I can say right now is, ‘hold onto your hats,’” he said of the longdiscussed commercialresidential project. In an interview, Patton added that there has been “more activity in the past two months than in the previous three years,” adding that interest has gone beyond the “kicking tires” stage, to “interesting, qualied people, showing serious interest at present.”Discussions continue with Western Michigan UniversityBy BILL JONESSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTO BY BILL JONESTom Patton, Charlotte County Economic Development director, at a meeting at the Isles Yacht Club in Punta Gorda. adno=487928 C he ck o ut L et ’s G o! o n We dn es da y f or m or e gr ea t di ning l oc at io ns ! adno=489034rfntb (941)698-6900 b rfntbrfr rtrfrfrServingBrunch OnSaturdays &Sundays 10:30Am-2Pm r r f f n t b ffntbAwardwinningribs, Awardwinningribs, greatburgers,fresh greatburgers,fresh seafood seafood and and mouthwatering mouthwatering steaks. steaks.

While county leaders are doing a good job recruiting minority candidates, County Commission chairwoman Carolyn Mason is saying they are falling short when it comes to hiring more of those candidates. “I’m a rm believer in our workforce looking more like our community, and right now, ours isn’t,” Mason said. County Human Resources Director Joanie Whitley said county policy is to diversify the employ ment roll. “We do have a workforce diversity plan that we submit to the board for approval every ve years,” she said. “And we update the statistics to see how we are doing with our demographics.” But demographics can’t trump qualications. “We work with our managers to make sure they are hiring the best candidates possible,” Whitley said. Mason agrees. “I’m not saying to hire minorities for the sake of hiring them, but there are qualied people out there,” she said. The challenge can sometimes be nding them. That’s where Michael Suarez comes in. As a human resources education professional, Suarez spends a lot of time in the community letting young people and adults know there are opportunities available within the county hierarchy. “I try to nd people who are, or may be, interested in careers within Sarasota County,” he said. One area with extensive potential is within the county’s re department and emergency medical services. “There are several re stations in the pipeline over the next several years,” said Lana Bruce of human resources workforce planning. “There are going to be a lot of opportunities there.” Suarez said he works with a lot of young people who are interested in those careers and they can start working toward that goal early. “Some schools will allow them to go to EMT schools while they’re still in high school,” he said. Suarez said he monitors openings in those and other departments and lets potential candidates know when a position becomes available. Whitley said the county has made strides in getting more women interested in jobs with the re department — a traditionally male-dominated career. The county has several initiatives in place to bolster minority hires, Whitley said. That includes trying to keep qualied people in the area. “We focus on young people in the community to try to get them interested in county government early on, so they don’t go to school and then move away,” she said. “We need to attract and maintain young people in our area.” That means getting the word out, Suarez said. “We have to let the community know that the county is interested in hiring a diverse work force,” he said. The more diverse the pool of qualied applicants, he said, the more diverse the workforce will become. “One of the things in our diversity plan is for the workforce to be reective of our community. We encourage leadership and managers to embrace this,” Whitley said. Mason, who discussed the issue at a budget workshop last week, said progress has been made but there are still issues to be resolved. “The county has to be more consistent. I don’t think it is something that is happening intentionally, I think it is something that just needs to be brought to everybody’s attention,” she said. “I have every condence it will be resolved.” Email: cburton@sun-herald.comSarasota County looks to diversify workforceBy CLINTON BURTONSARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR MASON adno=50478534 TAYLOR FUNERAL and Cremation Services L arry www.LTaylorFuneral.com Now Available to you 24 hrs A Day At Your Convenience Old Fashioned Service at a Price You Can Afford A sk Larry:I ’ m a v e t e r a n , b u t c a n w e I’m a veteran, but can we s t i l l u s e a N a t i o n a l C e m e t e r y still use a National Cemetery i f m y w i f e d i e s f i r s t ? if my wife dies first?

The takeaway here: Know your nancial institution’s rules and fees, and read everything it sends out. How do accounts become legally abandoned? “You can fail to cash a check, forget to update the address on the account, fail to respond to a proxy statement or simply fail to make contact with your nancial institution for a dened period of time,” explains Bankrate.com.

With their brains still developing, “if you can prevent them from doing drugs until 16 or older, then you are far more likely to prevent a future addiction,” Ramseyer said. Deputy David Sonne, a school resource ofcer at L.A. Ainger Middle School, suggested starting outreach at fth grade, and doing more to educate parents about monitoring their children’s behavior on the Internet in the discussion that followed. Parents in the audience agreed with the ofcer that keeping watch on their children’s online activity was important. Sonne added he saw in a documentary lm recently that drugs such as marijuana have become more potent with THC levels once at 3 to 6 percent and now at 25 to 30 percent. High school rates for alcohol use were up 1 percentage point from the previous year. Prescription drug abuse in high school was up 2 percentage points from 12 percent use in 2013 to 14 percent in 2014. Though the coalition has been involved with initiatives such as “take back boxes,” and “spring cleaning,” Ramseyer said they’ve focused more on alcohol and marijuana. Still, marijuana use was up the most — 4 percentage points — among high school students. Ramseyer said a student told her she didn’t see why it was a big deal because at the time Florida was considering an amendment to legalize it. Ramseyer said the coalition needs more volunteers to work with them on prevention of prescription drug and marijuana use. To nd out more, call her at 941-400-2067.

Lew Hastings, Boca Grande Area Chamber of Commerce executive director, met Clark in 2013 at a ribbon-cutting for a Mote satellite ofce in Boca Grande. He considers the experience a privilege. “She had a remarkable personality,” Hastings said. No matter where in the world her research took her, Hastings said, Clark expressed her concern for Southwest Florida’s marine habitat. Not without reason. According to Mote and Clark’s 2010 autobiography “The Lady and the Sharks,” she was a researcher at the Cape Haze Marine Laboratory, founded by the Vanderbilt family in 1950 and located where the Placida Harbour development is today on Placida Road (County Road 775). She became the director of the Cape Haze lab when it moved to Siesta Key in 1960 and had already built a reputation as a world-renowned ichthyologist. The lab would evolve into Mote. Recalling her rst year at the Cape Haze lab in 1955, Clark wrote, “By the end of the year, 28 scientists had come to visit and work at the lab for a few days or sometimes about a week. Many discussed with me plans to come back for a longer visit the following year with research projects.” Englewood historian Diana Harris met Clark several times when she visited Englewood. “She was not only gracious but very down to earth and a very cheerful person,” Harris recalled. “She seemed totally oblivious to the attention that she received.” At a time when female scientists — especially in the eld — were rare, Clark’s photo was featured in National Geographic magazine during a research dive trip to study the behavior of sleeping sharks in Mexico. She downplayed her featured appearance in the magazine, telling the Sun any dangers she faced that day “the male underwater photographer and other male researchers faced.” In an article appearing on www.nationalgeographic. com in the wake of her death, National Geographic photographer David Doubilet recalled Clark as someone who “never outgrew this absolute fascination of looking and seeing and observing under water.” And Doubilet said, “Even when I was a younger man and she was older, I couldn’t keep up with her. She moved with a kind of liquid speed under water.” Clark rst fell in love with sh and marine science as a small girl in Queens, N.Y. She spent much of her time the New York Aquarium at Battery Park. At Hunter College, Clark majored in zoology and went on taking graduate courses, including studying at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography. As a college student, she described herself as someone who viewed the world with “sh-colored glasses,” even for her English composition assignments. She earned her master’s and doctorate degrees at New York University and was named a Fulbright Research Scholar in 1951. “She was a very caring mom,” said John Bass IV. His grandfather, John “Jack” Bass Jr., established the Bass Biological Laboratory and Zoological Research Supply Co. in Englewood in the early 1930s. The Bass lab operated until 1944. “(Clark) would call us on the phone, and we’d gather kids in the neighborhood and go out with her to catch sea critters,” Bass said. He and Clark’s children grew up together. Clark is survived by her four children: Hera, Aya, Tak and Niki Konstantinou. Mote and her family are planning a public celebration of her life.

Judge Richards began hearing testimony last Friday related to Oonk’s motions for disqualication and dismissal. The hearing then continued Thursday. Assistant State Attorney Rich Montecalvo, the 20th Judicial Circuit SAO ofce head in Lee County, spoke in defense of the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Ofce and prosecutors. He said on Thursday it would be “absurd” for the judge to dismiss charges against Johnson. Under oath last Friday, jail ofcials said they didn’t know privileged conversations were being recorded. The sheriff’s ofce later determined a 2011 software malfunction led to as many as 1,900 recordings. They also testied that ve videos — including the OonkJohnson one — were sent by accident to the SAO. Prosecutors said they didn’t listen to any of the conversations. Thursday in court, with about a dozen uninvolved lawyers sitting in on the hearing, Oonk reiterated to Judge Richards the sanctity of the attorney-client privilege — one of the oldest recognized privileges for condential communications in America. The legal concept is intended to protect lawyers from testifying against their clients. “Is it just a rule of evidence?” Oonk asked, rhetorically. “The answer, judge, is, ‘No.’” Oonk said the privilege is implied in multiple articles of the United States Constitution. Also Thursday, Oonk suggested the Sheriff’s Ofce knew privileged conversations were being recorded. To believe they didn’t know about it for four years, he said, “offends common sense.” Oonk also criticized a recently completed CCSO internal investigation related to the issue, saying it was conducted to “deect blame” and not answer any significant questions. For example, Oonk pointed out, the report refers to four other privileged conversations that were recorded and distributed to prosecutors, but those matters weren’t investigated. Montecalvo defended the Sheriff’s Ofce. “The testimony is that none of this was intentional,” he said. “(And) there is no record of a cover-up.” Oonk said, because of “the way (the SAO) and CCSO share infor mation,” it might be “impossible” to know the true severity of the recording issue. Johnson’s murder trial has been scheduled to begin March 23. Email: akreger@sun-herald.com RECORDFROM PAGE 1 SARASOTA COUNTY — A 16-year-old girl took the stand Thursday in the sexual battery trial of Anthony James Jacot, revealing three incidents in which he allegedly raped the teen, once in a hotel room bathroom the night of her birthday. Jacot, 21, of North Port, is accused of raping two teenage girls in separate incidents. He faces a maximum of 60 years in prison if convicted. According to police reports, Jacot, then 20, began a sexual relationship with the girl (who took the stand Thursday) when she was 15, after meeting him at the Port Charlotte Town Center mall. Reports state the girl was choked and raped by Jacot 12 separate times. A second girl, who was not present or mentioned Thursday at the Sarasota County Justice Center, reported in July 2014 that Jacot raped her when she was 17. Both girls told police that Jacot used alcohol and drugs and had extreme mood swings, during which he would become physically and sexually abusive. The 16-year-old testied that she met Jacot at the mall in December 2013, and the two began a “friends with benets” relationship. Assistant State Attorney Kristina Lawrence asked her to recount some of the times Jacot allegedly had sex with her against her will. The rst occurred after Jacot woke the girl, who was staying over at a friend’s home, at 4 a.m. by knocking on a window. “My friend’s family started to wake up so I decided to go with him,” she said. “We went to his house ... and I tried to go to bed. He took off his clothes and got into bed with me. He started touching me and tried getting on top of me. I told him I didn’t want to ... we ended up on the oor. I told him no but he was drunk.” The girl went on to say that the defendant pulled her by her hair and forced her to perform a sex act. The teen testied she slept on Jacot’s living room couch and called her parents to pick her up the next morning. Another alleged incident, on the girl’s 16th birthday in midApril 2014, took place at a hotel room that the teen’s parents got for her birthday celebration. She testied that Jacot brought her into a bathroom a few feet away from where at least two of her friends were sleeping. “I was upset, crying, trying to tell him to stop, but I didn’t want him to hit me like he did before,” she said. “There were still people there; I didn’t want anyone to know. I didn’t tell anyone about it.” The teen also testied that Jacot coerced her into taking the over-thecounter cold medication Triple C and drinking alcohol, “mostly vodka.” The girl said some of the sex over the course of the veto six-month relationship with Jacot was “consensual” despite her being only 15 until mid-April. The age of consent in Florida can be 16 if a 16-year-old is consenting to having sex with someone age 16 to 23. Defense attorney Mark De Sisto tried to depict the girl as a liar and a drug and alcohol user prior to meeting Jacot. De Sisto asked the teen if she ever had a physical exam or a rape kit performed, or kept any evidence like underwear or sheets. She said no. North Port Police Detective Kishia Veigel with the sex crimes unit took the stand and conrmed that no rape kit or exam ever was ordered or taken on the girl. “Too much time had passed,” Veigel said. “Evidence doesn’t stay on a female very long.” De Sisto said in closing arguments that the teen wanted to continue a relationship with Jacot after she found out he was still involved with his ex-girlfriend. “You’re telling me this 15-year-old girl is strong enough to go through (numerous) rapes and not tell anybody?” De Sisto asked. “No, this happened because she wanted the relationship, and he was being a 20-year-old and living his life. “How would no one else around her not know? Not her parents, her friends. There wasn’t one person saying, ‘Something’s wrong here.’” Jacot faces ve charges — sexual battery of a minor, three counts of lewd or lascivious behavior, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Both sides rested Thursday. Twelfth Circuit Judge Charles Roberts read instructions to the six jurors and one alter nate just before 5 p.m. The trial will resume at 9 a.m. today with jury deliberations.Email: sgholar@sun-herald.comTeen testifies about alleged sexual abuseBy SAMANTHA GHOLARSTAFF WRITER JACOT PETSAREGOOD FO RY OURMENTALANDPHYSICALWELLBEING.Find that special companion in the Classifieds today!

As a Canadian snowbird of long standing, I recently had to have arthroscopic surgery on my knee. I have nothing but praise for the care I received from Dr. Braut and the people at Charlotte Orthopedic. Their costs were reasonable and I’m most grateful. Thumbs down. Because I was in no condition to fly back to Canada for the procedure, I opted to pay for the surgery facilities myself and worry about reimbursement from my travel medical insurance later. Here’s the thumbs down. The bill was $13,614 for the surgery facilities, but because I was self-pay, I got an immediate 75-percent discount of $10,210. Here’s the question. Why the extra $10,210 and where did it disappear to? My guess is that it would have gone to “HMO” profit and administration, as well as the surgery center’s extra administration and paperwork. Is it any wonder that the per-capita cost for the U.S. is far higher than any other country among OECD countries?Ronald Smith Port CharlotteEditor: As a Canadian snowbird who has traveled extensively throughout North America and Europe, I have made it a policy not to discuss politics or criticize local customs while visiting foreign countries. However, the driving habits of residents and visitors to Southwest Florida have compelled me to make an exception to that policy. The individuals operating motor vehicles here have made speeding, running amber/red lights, distracted driving and tailgating into national pastimes. Everywhere I drive, I encounter motor vehicle accidents which can be attributed to one of the aforementioned reasons. Before you tell me, “Go home if you don’t like it here,” criticism was not my intent. Folks here are friendly, helpful Editor: We greatly appreciate the high quality of the Sun , which we have read daily for the last eight years since relocating to Florida from New York. An example of a very informative article is the Feb. 20 Warm Mineral Springs story, “Master development envisioned for Springs community,” by Allison Shirk. Thank you for the accompanying map. It helped us to understand better the future plans for the Springs. Our suggestion is that you make maps such as this one larger as it is very difcult, and in some instances impossible, to read the very ne print. Our vision is still quite good, but we had to resort to a magnifying glass because we were so interested in the details of the article but had difculty seeing them on the map. Also, while appreciating that space is limited and at a premium in a newspaper, we would value any additional accompanying maps with your articles as we are sometimes not familiar with the geographic areas being discussed. Additional maps would help not only longerterm residents like us, but also the many visitors and new residents who read your newspaper but are even less familiar with the Southwest Florida area. Thank you, again. The first thing we do each morning is get a cup of coffee and read the Sun and two other news sources for an interesting, informative, as well as stimulating start to the day. Roger, Myrna Uhlich EnglewoodEditor: I understand that there is a bill before the Florida Legislature to arm students to prevent violent acts on campus. While I think the whole idea of “gun-free” zones on school and college campuses is ridiculous, assuring would-be killers that there is no one on campus who can stop them, arming students is not the answer. I taught at Stonehill College and Providence College for 20 years, and I can tell you that this is madness. Even somewhat mature students sometimes get very drunk and sometimes act very foolishly. A much better and very serious idea is to allow cer tain teacher-volunteers who qualify for concealed-carry permits to be armed on campus. This would at least give us a chance to stop mass killings from happening. Every state, including Florida, that has a concealed-carry law should enact legislation to put this idea into effect. Don’t forget that every state that recently passed concealed-carry laws showed an immediate reduction in violent crimes.Russell E. Wilcox Port CharlotteEditor: The article about the lawsuit against Phillip Morris and the tobacco industry vs. dying from lung cancer. To say this is fair is a joke. This man won’t see the money. The lawyers and heir will rake off. It will not bring back the loved one. We all have choices, and one of them is to smoke or not. Read the labels before choosing. If you do choose to smoke it is your own fault and you face the consequences of your decision. But don’t blame anyone else for your foolishness. I’ve been there and it’s hard to do, but there are ways to quit smoking. You have to want to do it. Editor: Howard Dean, a graduate of Yale University and supposedly an intelligent man, didn’t do himself or the Democrat Party any favors when he questioned Gov. Scott Walker’s lack of a college degree. By doing so, he not only impugned Walker but every citizen of Wisconsin who voted for him. What was he thinking? I think the Democrats can scratch Wisconsin off their list. Seriously, where would we be if people like Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Harry Truman, Maya Angelou, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, among others, were so carelessly dismissed, all because they never attended or finished college? Maybe what America needs most of all in these perilous times is a man of character, substance, someone like Scott Walker. Not a touting, diploma-waving snob. And certainly not a person who believes it is their due right to be anointed president when they have no true accomplishments, only titles.Rose Ahern North PortEditor: President Obama’s reluctance to call the kettle black when it comes to Islamic extremists becomes even more bothersome when he mentions Crusades of ancient history to excuse a modern-day Muslim problem. There is no denying Christian atrocities of the past, but the difference is Square deal on cost share for detentionOUR POSITION: The state must stop cost-reshufing that imposes a burden on local taxpayers.The county commissions of Charlotte and Sarasota took steps recently to strengthen their hands in a long-oating poker game with the state over juvenile detention costs. The problem in this case — as with so many others — is that the state acts as dealer and keeps reshufing the deck to suit its nancial needs. It’s a frustrating situation that most often ends up with local taxpay ers feeding the pot. The issue stretches back a decade, when the Legislature decided counties should bear responsibility for a portion of costs for area juvenile detention centers. In the rst deal, counties would foot the bill up to a nal court disposition; the state picked up the tab after that. It was simple and straightforward. The rules changed in the scal year 2008-2009, as Florida dipped into the Great Recession and the state budget shriveled. Acting without legislative authorization, the Department of Juvenile Justice decided counties — read, local taxpayers — would pay costs of juveniles waiting for “commitment” to a long-term residential facility. That added thousands of days to the bill and shifted millions in cost onto local taxpayers. A number of counties, including Sarasota and Charlotte, fought the change. Eventually, they won a District Court of Appeals ruling that tossed out the rule change. In 2013, the Department of Juvenile Justice notied counties they had a credit for past overcharges. Sarasota County estimated a credit of roughly $1.5 million. In Charlotte, it was $1,030,460. Following the court ruling, the agency reduced billing statewide by $40 million. Then — despite the written guarantee that “all rights and remedies” in the court ruling “are preserved, and not waived between now and the date of nal agency action” — the DJJ changed its mind. The agency reshufed the deck and shifted $20 million in costs back to the counties. Standing by the court ruling, Charlotte and Sarasota and four other counties have been applying the credit to their bills — paying nothing. That action, amazingly, left them open to political claims they were being stubborn and unfair. Sen. Joe Negron, the chairman of the Senate Criminal and Civil Justice Appropriations Subcommittee, state, “If the counties are going to be unreasonable, and we come to the conclusion they’re shortchanging the state $65 million, believe me, I can nd $65 million in the budget going to counties that aren’t cooperating.” Last week, Charlotte County commissioners decided to pay a portion of the bill. The previous week, Sarasota commissioners did the same. Both cast it as a “good faith” gesture. Both commissions also stressed they weren’t trying to dodge responsibilities, but were only looking to negotiate a fair settlement. Based on a court ruling, the share comes to 32 per cent. But the Florida Association of Counties has been open to a 50/50 split. The matter is back before an administrative law judge, but it’s time for legislators to address the issue when the session gets underway in the coming week. Find a compromise. Give credit where it’s legally due. Stop reshufing the deck to meet the state’s budgetary needs and passing costs on to local taxpayers . and welcoming. Besides, returning home would not alleviate the car nage on the roads, property damage, increased insurance costs and the heartache associated with the personal injuries and deaths these tragedies create. Perhaps if law enforcement agencies spent less time pursuing people with one marijuana joint in their glove compartment and more time monitoring vehicular trafc and enforcing highway trafc act legislation, driving here could actually become a safe and enjoyable experience.Brian McGhee North PortCan you get money from Toyota if your drive carelessly and have an accident? Please, think before punishing someone else for your own mistakes. We are all responsible for our own actions, not the other guy. And no, I do not have stocks in the industry. You’re only making the lawyers richer.Nancy Zimmerman ArcadiaChristians have reformed and found humility among the world’s population especially in the last 50 years. President Obama could have pointed out the reformation, plus the numerous charities of Christian origin that help everyone, everywhere. It is Western and predominately Christian nations that are there when there is famine, earthquakes and tsunamis with aid. The West helps everyone in need, especially our neighbors and friends, but what I see is it took a Jordanian fighter pilot to be burned to death to rally Jordanians against ISIS. Where was their anger when Yazidi women were being enslaved or when Iraqis were being executed and aid workers and journalists were being beheaded? Do they not care for their neighbors? Is a tribe or religious sect more important than a fellow human? Too many Muslims around the world are showing complacency and a blind eye to Boko Haram, al-Qaida, ISIS and Al Shabbab to name a few. Yes, Mr. President, there is an Islamic extremist problem and it cannot be excused or explained away by ancient history nor economics.Salvatore Vitiello Port Charlotte , yY 'T5goTAQEE,pTMENT...r.,QoNNA GAMPBELPROTELTIO U5i TAKEOVER....2015S Wicm cM% ToPESlCAJAT'cN W A5UNK0 4P4GE SITE...

The Sun /Friday, February 27, 2015 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINTWASHINGTON — Denizens of social media were rankled during Sunday night’s Academy Awards telecast when actor Sean Penn made a crack about Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and green cards. Or so we are told by the minders of buzz. Penn, just before announcing Inarritu’s award for Best Picture, the director’s third Oscar of the evening, quipped: “Who gave this son of a bitch his green card?” Cue the sound of tweeters gasping. But, of course, it was a quip. Do people really think it was xenophobic? Indeed, many — with the notable exception of Inarritu — were offended. I won’t explain the joke, since this would render it absolutely un-funny. Not that Penn’s joke was a knee-slapper, but it was obvious (at least to me and appar ently to Inarritu) that it was a joke, not a slur. Inarritu, who says he and Penn have had a “tough” joke friendship dating back to 2003’s Grams,” a lm they worked on together, said he thought it was “hilarious.” It certainly didn’t inhibit his acceptance remarks, which included his prayer that his fellow Mexicans “can be treated with the same dignity and respect of the ones that came before and built this incredible, immigrant nation.” His emphasis. One might even view Penn’s comment as a backhanded compliment. As in, this director is so amazing, who let him come in here to make the rest of us feel like chopped liver? There, I went and explained the joke, anyway. I’ll concede that Penn’s delivery had all the warmth of a basilisk’s gaze. Then again, what would one expect from Penn? He has mastered the expression of one who would rather be anywhere else. His default countenance is of a man trapped between existential angst and disgust — or rather like someone who knows what’s really going on. Had almost any comedian — Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jon Stewart — delivered the same line, the effect would have been much different and doubtless found inoffensive if not charming. It’s all in the delivery. Must everyone always be happy? And more concerning, will our uber-sensitivity eventually render us humorless robots uttering pre-approved giblets of meaningless verbiage? Any attempt at humor that relies as its basis on race, sex or any other distinction to which an -ist may be added is verboten. This is commendable on its face, but there are ne lines and shades of gray between funny and offensive. Often, a good joke is both. Oversensitivity, meanwhile, can have a stiing effect not just on humor but on public discourse and free expression. A non-Twitter example is the recent decision at Mt. Holyoke College to cancel its annual production of the “Vagina Monologues.” Any reason would do as far as I’m concerned, except perhaps for this one: The Eve Ensler creation isn’t inclusive enough (even at an all-women’s college) because, stand back, it excludes women who are “trans.” That is, those who may not (yet) have vaginas. This is stupefyingly funny in a strange way, but it’s not a joke. The underlying principle of such extreme sensitivity, whether on social media or college campuses, is the idea that no one should ever be offended. This is a noble goal (I guess), but where does such absolutism t into a free society? And whither goest humor, which relies on irreverence and the formerly justied assumption that God shared his sense of humor with his most perplexing creation — human beings? Kidding aside. Social media, especially Twitter, have appropriated the role of national conscience. When Tweety Bird is upset, the whole world is upset — or at least that portion of the world that pays attention to such things. As of 2014, only 23 per cent of online adults (18 and older) use Twitter, according to the Pew Research Center. But the broader media pay attention to and report on buzz as though these online snippets were the last word on public opinion. But buzz, like all gossip through time, is meaningless without contextual analysis. Buzz, in other words, doesn’t necessar ily suggest a conclusion, such as Americans have lost their sense of humor and we have become mind-numbingly politically correct. This may be our future, heaven forbid. But meanwhile, we can nd some comfort in the following: Many Americans couldn’t care less about the Oscars, what Penn said, or what Twitter buzzed about it. Only 36.6 million watched the Academy Awards this year, down 16 percent from last year, according to Nielsen ratings. Context is, as always, everything. But we’ll see what Twitter has to say about that. Kathleen Parker is a Washington Post columnist. Readers may reach her at kathleenparker@ washpost.com.Twitter as America’s conscience Kathleen Parker Sen. Ted Cruz is getting close to announcing his candidacy for the Re publican presidential nomination. The Texan is spending almost as much time in Iowa and New Hampshire as he does on Fox News; he’s hired a staff and collected a long list of ercely conservative supporters. There’s at least one hitch: Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, in the Canadian province of Alberta. His mother was a U.S. citizen, born in Delaware; his father was a Cuban refugee working in Canada’s oil elds. Thanks to his mother, Cruz was a U.S. citizen at birth. But that doesn’t clear up a legal muddle that’s as old as the Constitution: Is a U.S. citizen born abroad qualied to serve as president? I don’t agree with Cruz on most issues. He wants to repeal Obamacare, abolish the Internal Revenue Service and pass a constitutional amendment allowing states to outlaw gay marriage, just to take the top of his list. But I still hope he runs — because it’s high time we established the right of Canadian-born Americans to serve as president. Canadian Americans are perhaps our most underappreciated minority. Their contributions to U.S. culture range from hockey to comedy to, well, hockey. It’s an impressive list: Wayne Gretzky, William Shatner, Lorne Michaels, Jim Carrey, Pamela Anderson, Alex Trebek. And now Ted Cruz. At this point I should confess a personal stake: My oldest daughter was born in Toronto. Like Ted Cruz, she inherited U.S. citizenship through one of her parents. But we assured her that she could grow up to be president of the United States. (Proud of her dual citizenship, she says she’d like to serve as prime minister of Canada too.) Canada is a wonderful country — wilderness on top, oil and gas under neath, plus universal health care and sensible gun control laws. All those good things, alas, are not an argument for a Cruz presidency. He has promised not to import any Canadian virtues to the U.S. homeland (except, perhaps, more Alberta oil) if he is elected to the White House. “Canadians are so polite, mild-mannered, modest, unassuming, open-minded,” Cruz joked last year. “Thank God my family ed that oppressive inuence before it could change me.” Cruz hasn’t simply renounced Canadian moderation; last year, he formally renounced the Canadian half of his dual citizenship. But even that doesn’t settle the constitutional issue — at least not to the satisfaction of some of the “birthers” who charged that President Obama was born outside the United States. “Clearly there is an issue of eligibility,” chief birther Orly Taitz told U.S. News a while ago. “It’s basically the same issue as Obama.” Except that in Cruz’s case, he really was born in a foreign country. Surprisingly, some legal scholars agree — not that Cruz is unqualied, but that the question isn’t a slam-dunk. The Constitution says only a “natural born citizen” can serve as president, but it isn’t clear whether the Founding Fathers intended that to include U.S. citizens born abroad. “The consensus (among constitutional lawyers) is that it means citizens at birth,” said Gabriel Chin, a professor at UC Davis. “But people are not 100 percent condent.” “In my view, it does merit a test,” agreed Sarah Helene Duggin, a professor at the Catholic University of America. Indeed, she argued, if Cruz were to win the Republican nomination, it would be in the nation’s interest to get the question settled early. “If we ever get to the point where we have a presidential candidate with this issue, we will need a clarication,” she said. “If the candidate were elected and then disqualied, that would be a serious constitutional crisis.” Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) faced a similar issue in 2008 but argued that his birthplace, the Panama Canal Zone, was U.S. territory at the time he was born; the U.S. Senate passed a biparti san resolution endorsing his eligibility. It won’t be easy to get a once and for all decision. Somebody has to get the question into the courts through a lawsuit. But as the birthers discovered in 2008, most judges don’t think voters have legal standing to sue over a candidate’s qualications. (To have standing, a plaintiff has to show that he or she is suffering concrete injury from a defendant’s conduct.) One of Cruz’s competitors in the race could sue, but that might not play well as a campaign issue. That leaves the matter in Cruz’s hands. As an “originalist” who believes in the literal meaning of the Constitution, he ought to be the rst to want that murky phrase in Article II cleared up. “The Constitution matters — all of the Constitution,” Cruz said in 2013. “It’s not pick and choose. It’s not take what part you like and get rid of the parts you don’t like.” If Cruz runs, he should ask a friendly state ofcial to challenge his candidacy. Most legal scholars think he’d win, or at least not lose. (The courts might leave it to the voters to decide.) Win or lose, he would have the satisfaction of making constitutional history.

Our Town Page 10 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, February 27, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Cooler than normal weather today is due to an overnight cold front, but it should gradually warm up through the weekend, said Andrew McKaughan, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. The weekend forecast is partly to mostly cloudy with a 30 to 40 percent chance of rain. Today, the high will be in the lower 70s with an overnight low in the upper 50s to around 60. This is below the average high for this time of year in the area, which is about 79 degrees, according to the weather service. The rest of the weekend may have slightly above-average temperatures with highs around 80, and lows in the mid-60s overnight. McKaughan said a “warmer wind ow” with winds shifting from the northwest to the east is causing the increase in temperature and rain chance.Email: sbrokaw@sun-herald.com Weather gradually warms up this weekendBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITER ENGLEWOOD — Mayberry may have been a ctional town on television, but life in Englewood wasn’t like that. “Growing up here was amazing,” Donna Baggot said. She was 4 when her family moved to Englewood in 1968, “Everyone looked out for one another. Everyone knew everybody or someone you knew.” She’s among the longtime Englewood residents organizing the Fourth Annual Generations of Englewood Reunion 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at the Englewood Sports Complex, 1300 South River Road. The reunion promises hot dogs, burgers, drinks, music and a chili cook-off at noon. Donations will be requested. The idea for the reunion allows people to reconnect with one another rather than waiting for funerals or other somber occasions, Baggot said. People have also been connecting electronically on the “Remember Englewood When” Facebook site. The site has seen more than 3,000 individuals visiting it, Baggot said. Tomma Rolfe, owner of the Country Hound Cafe, also was a small girl when her family moved to Englewood in 1969. Like Baggot, Rolfe recalled a close-knit community where people looked out for each other. They also invite newer Englewood residents to come and enjoy the reunion.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comEnglewood community reunites SundayBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER Start your day with the Crossword Puzzle Mon.

The Sun /Friday, February 27, 2015 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 11 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS ROTONDA WEST — Third time’s a charm. This age-old saying applies to the third Health and Wellness Fair on Tuesday that set records for both attendance and dollars for the beneciary, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Englewood. The event at Sterling House of Englewood drew some 300 visitors and vendors. Twenty-eight professional practitioners were kept busy all day providing screenings and tests, and dispensing information. And residents gained vital information about their health status. Outside, technicians aboard the Alzheimer’s Association’s Memory Mobile had few breaks, while inside, residents took the opportunity to learn about their health status in many categories. Big Brothers Big Sisters was the beneciary and recipient of $1,214 that will be used to nance one match with a “Big” and “Little” for one year. The fundraiser comes at an opportune time as 26 youngsters are on the Englewood waiting list for a mentor. Featured were a rafe and Chinese auction. Forty local businesses contributed items and gift certicates for the auction. The event coordinator was Brenda Peckham, sales manager of Sterling House and a board member of Big Brothers Big Sisters. Members of the Planning Committee were Sheriff’s Deputy Dan Cotton, chairman of the board of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Englewood; and Jim Laurent, Danica Harris and Don Mahon, all BBBS board members, and Marybeth Harris, community resource director of BBBS of the Sun Coast. Under the outdoor canopy, 303 hot dogs were sold for $3 each with a fruit cup, bag of chips and bottled water. Proceeds also went to Big Brothers Big Sisters. “We are grateful to all of our area residents and everyone who participated to the success of our event,” commented Peckham. The major fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters is the popular Chefs Cooking For Kids planned later this year. Last year’s event was a sellout at the Englewood Event Center.

The 3-2 vote ushered in a new era of government oversight for an industry that has seen relatively little. It represents the biggest regulatory shake-up to telecommunications providers in almost two decades. The new rules require that any company providing a broadband connection to your home or phone must act in the “public interest” and refrain from using “unjust or unreasonable” business practices. The goal is to prevent providers from striking deals with content providers like Google, Netix or Twitter to move their data faster. “Today is a red-letter day for Internet freedom,” said FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, whose remarks at Thursday’s meeting frequently prompted applause by Internet activists in the audience.

A growing body of evidence suggests he is a London-raised university graduate, described by one man who knew him as kind, gentle and humble. The Washington Post and the BBC on Thursday identied the British-accented militant from the chilling videos as Mohammed Emwazi, a man in his mid-20s who was born in Kuwait and raised in a modest, mixed-income area of west London. No one answered the door at the brick row house where the Emwazi family is alleged to have lived. Neighbors in the surrounding area of public housing projects either declined comment or said they didn’t know the family. One man who knew Emwazi portrayed him as compassionate, a description completely at odds with the cruelty attributed to him. “The Mohammed that I knew was extremely kind, extremely gentle, extremely soft-spoken, was the most humble young person that I Reports: ‘Jihadi John’ raised in UKBy JILL LAWLESSASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERJOHN | 4 AP FILE PHOTOThis undated image shows a frame from a video released Oct. 3, 2014, by Islamic State militants that purports to show the militant who beheaded taxi driver Alan Henning.GAINESVILLE — A rare parasite found in snails and rats that can cause serious health problems in humans and animals is more pervasive in South Florida than previously thought, a new study has found. University of Florida scientists say the nightmar ishly named “rat lungworm” has been found in multiple species of snails in the Miami area, including the invasive giant African snail. The scientists, who published their results in the “Journal of Parasitology,” made the discovery while investigating the death of an orangutan that died after eating snails and falling ill. It was the second primate to die from ingesting infected snails in Florida since 2004. The Angiostrongylus cantonensis parasite is already a public health issue in Hawaii and throughout Asia, and it’s been found previously in Louisiana and Florida. But until now was not considered common in the continental U.S. Becoming infected with the lungworm is as bad as it sounds: once consumed, the parasites eat their way to the central nervous system, where they eventually die. While in rare cases the infection can be fatal, the worms often cause severe headaches, and sometimes even paralysis in people. In Hawaii, the infected snails have caused dozens of people to fall ill, mostly from accidentally ingesting tiny snails on salad greens or other produce that had not been properly washed. Robert Cowie, a research scientist at the University of Hawaii who studies the lungworm and was not involved in the Florida paper, said the research shows the worm thrives in subtropical climates. Whether it recently spread here or is just now being found is difcult to say. “It’s taken hold in the most Study: ‘Rat lungworm’ poses health dangerBy JASON DEARENASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERLUNGWORM | 4 y ..11U09a r

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee announced Thursday that national security adviser Susan Rice and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power will speak to its confer ence that begins this weekend. U.S. ofcials had oated the idea of sending a non-Cabinet level ofcial to the event to show the administration’s deep displeasure with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress next week, in which he will argue against an Iran deal.Tsarnaev lawyers: Not enough minorities in jury poolBOSTON (AP) — Lawyers for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect asked a judge Thursday to dismiss the indictment against their client or suspend his trial, saying there weren’t enough minorities and younger people in the jury pool. The move by lawyers for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev came just days before opening statements and testimony are set to begin in his federal death penalty trial. In their written motion, Tsarnaev’s lawyers say the selection process has undermined the required random summoning of potential jurors. They also say the process violated Tsarnaev’s constitutional right to have a jury that rep resents a “fair cross section of the community.”Boehner defends Netanyahu speech, rejects criticismWASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker John Boehner is defending the invitation to the Israeli prime minister to speak to Congress about Iran. The speaker also is rejecting criticism from National Security Adviser Susan Rice that the speech is “destructive” to U.S.-Israel relations. Boehner told reporters Thursday he disagrees with Rice. He says a “bad deal” with Iran on its nuclear program would be destructive, and the American people need to hear from Benjamin Netanyahu.Couple married 67 years dies holding handsFRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Floyd and Violet Hartwig’s marriage spanned 67 years, but their love for one another appears timeless. Sensing that the couple was close to death, their children pushed their two hospice beds together and gently placed their father’s hand in the mother’s palm. Floyd, 90, died rst. Violet, 89, followed ve hours later. They had a good life and died Feb. 11 at home, just as they had wished, the family said. “They wanted to go together,” their daughter, Donna Scharton, said Thursday. “It was meant to be that way.” The two knew each other as children, growing up in the Central California farming community of Easton. Romance sparked at a local dance hall one night when Floyd, a decorated Navy sailor, was home on shore leave. They were married on Aug. 16, 1947, and Floyd showered Violet with affection from afar through love letters that the family still cherishes. “They were dedicated to each other,” Scharton said. “Even other people who met them said they had that connection.” Cynthia Letson said that after her grandfather passed, they told her grandmother, as she faded, that she could go too. They told Violet that Floyd was waiting for her. Letson said her grandparents are a positive example at a time with too many broken marriages. “It would be nice if the world got back to the core of marriage,” Letson said. “I don’t think people realize that anymore. They need to go back to the basics that marriage is forever.”Teen pleads guilty to trying to support terrorismMINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minnesota teenager who had been stopped at the airport as he was trying to travel to Syria pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. Abdullahi Mohamud Yusuf, 18, admitted in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis that he had intended to go to Syria last May to join the Islamic State group. He faces a maximum of 15 years in prison. No sentencing date has been set. Authorities say a handful of Minnesota residents have traveled to Syria to ght with militants in the last year. At least one Minnesotan has died there. In addition, at least 22 young Somali men have traveled from Minnesota to Somalia since 2007 to join the terrorist group al-Shabab.More than 2,000 pedestrians killed in first half of 2014WASHINGTON (CQ Roll Call) — There were 2,082 pedestrians killed by cars and trucks in the United States in the rst half of last year, the Governors Highway Safety Association reported Thursday, which was a 2.8 percent decrease from the same period in 2013 and part of a long-term trend in road safety. Since 2000, the number of U.S. pedestrians killed by vehicles each year has ranged from about 4,100 to about 4,900. The GHSA report said Delaware and Florida had the highest rates of pedestrian deaths per 100,000 people in the rst half of 2014.Study: Americans still stressed despite improved economyWASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly six years after the Great Recession, a clear majority of American families say they feel unprepared for a nancial emergency. The Pew Charitable Trusts’ poll of 7,000 U.S. households nds that 57 percent don’t consider themselves ready for a sudden nancial setback, 55 percent say they break even or spend more than they make each month, and a third have no savings. “Despite a steady economic recovery, many Americans continue to feel vulnerable,” says Erin Currier, director of Pew’s nancial security and mobility project. WASHINGTON (AP) — Sounding retreat, House Republicans agreed Thursday to push shortterm funding to prevent a partial shutdown at the Homeland Security Department while leaving in place Obama administration immigration policies they have vowed to repeal. “The speaker’s pretty adamant that he’s not going to shut down Homeland Security, especially in light of the Mall of America and in light of what’s happened in New York,” said Rep. Dennis Ross., R-Fla., emerging from a closed-door strategy session with the Republican rank-and-le. He referred to a suggestion made by one terrorist group that a sym pathizer should attack the Mall of America, an enor mous shopping facility in Minnesota, as well as the arrests Wednesday in Brooklyn of men charged with plotting to help Islamic State ghters. Ross and other Republicans said legislation to fund DHS for three weeks would be put to a vote in the House on Friday. Senate Democratic ofcials indicated they would agree to the measure, and predicted President Barack Obama would sign the measure, averting a partial shutdown of an agency with major anti-terrorism responsibilities. Outlining a second step in a revised strategy, Ross said House Republicans would also seek negotiations on a separate spending bill on track for Senate passage on Friday. It would fund the agency through the Sept. 30 end of the budget year while also rolling back Obama’s immigration directives. Senate rules require 60 votes to initiate formal compromise talks between the houses on any bill, and Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said in advance his party would use its strength to prevent that from happening in the current clash. Anticipating that, some Republicans made the case inside the strategy session for simply conceding defeat and agreeing to a longer-term funding bill without conditions, according to ofcials who attended the session. In addition, Rep. Pete King, R-N.Y., and a former chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, told reporters that lawmakers should think of the consequences “if a bomb goes off in their district.” To consider shuttering the agency “is wrong politically, mor ally and governmentally. Politically it’s going to kill us. Morally, you’re equating an immigration order with the lives of American citizens,” he said.House GOP weighs new approach (LA Times) — Ukrainian defense ofcials and leaders of the separatist rebellion in eastern Ukraine announced Thursday that they were moving tanks and other heavy weaponry away from the front lines in a belated effort to abide by the conditions of a European-brokered peace agreement. But both sides warned that the movement would be reversed if their opponents sought to take advantage of the lull in shooting that has nally occurred more than a week after the cease-re was to have taken effect. Under the peace plan hammered out Feb. 12 during marathon negotiations in Minsk, the capital of Belarus, the combatants were supposed to have begun the weapons pullback on Feb. 16, the day after the cease-re went into force, and to have completed the moves within two weeks. The Russia-backed separatists unleashed erce artillery barrages for days after the purported cease-re start and succeeded in taking the strategic railway junction town of Debaltseve before halting offensives. Ukrainian defense ofcials and political leaders had said they could not meet the Minsk schedule for weapons withdrawal because of the continued attacks on government positions. Col. Andriy Lysenko, spokesman for Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, told reporters in Kiev on Thursday that ghting had nally died down enough to begin complying with the weapons pullback, which by the peace plan’s timetable should be completed by Sunday. The Interfax-Ukraine news agency quoted Ukrainian military spokes man Anatoly Stelmakh as saying the government forces were moving their 100-millimeter anti-tank guns 16 miles back from the front line, as stipulated by the deal brokered in Minsk by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande. Alexander Zakharchenko, leader of the separatists’ self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, also announced that a weapons withdrawal was underway. “Donetsk has withdrawn 90 percent of heavy weaponry from the line of contact,” Zakharchenko was quoted as saying by Russia’s Sputnik news agency.Ukraine, separatists begin pullback AP PHOTOA priest bows as Russia-backed separatist ghters drive in a self-propelled 152 mm artillery piece, part of a unit moved away from the front lines, in Yelenovka, near Donetsk, Ukraine, Thursday.

At the same time, the extremists also released a video showing the continued destruction of the heritage of the lands under their control. It depicted men using sledgehammers to smash ancient Mesopotamian statues and other artifacts in Iraq’s northern city of Mosul. The video, coinciding with mounting fears over the fate of the captive Christian Assyrians in Syria, sent a fresh wave of dread across the region, particularly among minorities who feel targeted by the group. “Daesh is wiping Assyrian heritage in Mosul, and at the same time wiping them geographically from the face of the Earth,” said Osama Edward, director of the Assyrian Network for Human Rights in Syria. He referred to the Islamic State by its Arabic acronym. About 200 Assyrians and other Christians gathered in a church east of Beirut in solidarity with the victims in Syria and Iraq. Some cried openly. One man held a banner that read: “We will not surrender, we will not be broken.” A few young men said they were preparing to go to Syria to ght and help their brethren defend their homes against the Islamic State group. The destruction of artifacts in the Mosul museum is part of a campaign by IS extremists who have destroyed a number of shrines — including Muslim holy sites — to eliminate what they view as heresy. They also are believed to have sold ancient artifacts on the black market in order to nance their bloody campaign in the region. In the video released Thursday, militants used sledgehammers and drills to smash and destroy several large statues, which are then shown chipped and in pieces. The ve-minute video also shows a black-clad man at an archaeological site in Mosul, drilling through and destroying a winged-bull — an Assyrian protective deity — that dates to the 7th century B.C. The video was posted on social media accounts afliated with the Islamic State group. Although it could not be independently veried by The Associated Press, it appeared to be authentic, based on knowledge of the Mosul Museum.IS militants smash ancient artifacts AP PHOTOIn this image made from video posted on a social media account aliated with the Islamic State group on Thursday, militants take sledgehammers to an ancient artifact in the Ninevah Museum in Mosul, Iraq.(AP) — Facebook users who don’t t any of the 58 gender identity options offered by the social media giant are now being given a rather big 59th option: ll in the blank. “Now, if you do not identify with the prepopulated list of gender identities, you are able to add your own,” said a Facebook announcement published online Thursday morning and shared in advance with The Associated Press. Facebook software engineer Ari Chivukula, who identies as transgender and was part of the team that made the free-form option, thinks the change will lead to more widespread acceptance of people who don’t identify themselves as a man or woman. “We’re hoping this will open up the dialogue,” Chivukula said. Alison C.K. Fogarty, a gender identity researcher at Stanford University, said giving users control over the words describing their gender is a signicant step in social recognition of a growing trans community, especially coming from the world’s largest social media company. “People are still ghting to make room for gender identity within the socially constructed binary of male and female,” Fogarty said. “Labels and identities are powerful in that they give a sense of community, a way of articulating one’s experience.” In February 2014, Facebook expanded gender identity from male and female to a list of dozens of options, including Androgyne, Gender Fluid, Intersex, Neither and Transgender. Those choices will all still be available. People who choose a custom gender can also choose the pronoun they would like to be referred to publicly: he/his, she/ her or they/their. Facebook has a setting for users to control the audience who sees their gender. Last year’s changes created an online stir, with thousands of comments — some grateful, others confused or hostile. But staff at Facebook said there was full support to take it even further this year, from CEO Mark Zuckerberg on down. As of Thursday, the free-form option rolled out to U.S. users, while the custom gender identity option with a list of words was available in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Argentina and Denmark. Facebook, which has 1.23 billion active monthly users around the world, would not release how many users have chosen gender identity options beyond man or woman, citing privacy concerns and a general practice of not sharing user information.New Facebook gender option: fill in the blank i twIle

The Sun /Friday, February 27, 2015 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 STATE NEWS TALLAHASSEE (AP) — For nearly 2 million Florida public school students, the next few weeks could be a crucial moment in their education. The state is undertaking one of the biggest changes in its classrooms since for mer Gov. Jeb Bush pushed through his signature A+ school grading system nearly 16 years ago. Students will switch this spring to a new test based largely on Common Core standards and it’s a test that most will do on a computer instead of paper. What happens before the end of the school year could go a long way in determining whether the Florida Legislature enacts sweeping changes to the current system. The 60-day annual session starts Tuesday. A backlash against the state’s use of standardized testing has been building up as school districts and even some Republican legislators say it’s time for an overhaul. Gov. Rick Scott has already acknowledged the testing backlash, which included a Southwest Florida school district briey discarding state-mandated tests last fall. Just this week, he suspended an 11th-grade standardized test scheduled this spring. But it’s not clear how far that Scott and the GOPcontrolled Legislature will go beyond that. Florida expanded the use of standardized testing under Bush’s plan to grade schools. The A to F grades were used to offer rewards and impose sanctions on schools. Students who failed the tests, which up until this year were known as the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test or FCAT, could be held back in third grade or, in high school, not allowed to graduate. The number of tests has grown since 1999 as end of course exams were added in various subjects. The tests also took on more importance as they became part of the measurements used to evaluate teachers. But the switch to new stan dards and the new Florida Standards Assessment based on the controversial Common Core standards has sparked opposition from some parents and teachers statewide. It’s also caused school ofcials and superintendents to concede the state is requiring schoolchildren to take too many tests overall. “There is considerable over-testing that is robbing precious time from teaching,” said Miami-Dade schools superintendent Alberto Carvalho. The teachers union — the Florida Education Association — says the state should administer the new tests this year but wants the Legislature to exempt students and teachers from any sanctions related to the test. Sen. John Legg, R-Trinity and chairman of the Senate education committee, doesn’t agree, saying it would only delay the “same conversation” school ofcials and legislators are having. But he also said such a move would penalize those districts and schools that have prepared for the new tests. “We do have schools that are ready,” Legg said. “What do we say to them? We basically say ‘Hey, this was just a good head fake, this really didn’t matter this year.’” Legg has crafted a bill that would limit how many hours students could spend on state-mandated tests. But instead of granting a blanket waiver, he would allow school districts to apply for a one-time break this year. The school districts would forfeit any extra money they normally get for schools that earn top grades.Legislators under pressure to alter school testing Big Rig Books, a nonprot that gives free books to Lee County children in need, may be forced to cancel school visits Thursday because someone stole the truck mirrors. “Having to cancel our event today at (Fort Myers Middle Academy) because some nasty people stole our truck mirrors for the second time,” John Gervase tweeted. He and his wife, Kathy, operate the nonprot that gives free books to students at 12 Lee County schools in the winter and 24 Chicago schools in the summer. “We’re trying to help people. It’s so frustrating,” John Gervase said. “It’s not just the mirrors. These are custom mirrors; they are hard to nd and we can’t easily replace them. “I’m at the Peterbilt dealership and see if I can jerry-rig something” so they can drive their 2000 Peterbilt 379 to Fort Myers Middle later Thursday, he added. Almost every week during season, John drives their Peterbilt — with more than 680,000 miles — into the bus lane of a Lee elementary or middle school. He tows a trailer with approximately 7,000 books, new and used, and Kathy pulls up behind him in an Avalanche pickup. John Gervase noticed the theft about 8:30 a.m. after heading into the Lee County School District maintenance yard at Ford and Canal streets to prep the truck for the Fort Myers Middle visit. “They’re kind enough to let me park it there because I serve their students,” he said. “It is locked at night, but they jumped the fence. “It’s just mirrors, it’s not just like it’s an engine, but something as simple as mirrors causes a big problem. I just stood there staring in awe and disgust, like ‘Oh my gosh, I can’t believe this just happened. I feel so bad — it’s all about the kids.” The mirrors were stolen for the rst time in early 2014 when the Gervases parked the truck at a lot near the Farmers Market on Edison Avenue. After that theft, a parts supplier on the East Coast was kind enough to sell replacement mirrors at his cost, which was about $1,100. It cost $200 to wire them, Gervase said. “That was just the mirrors. In this (theft) they took the brackets and the turn signals,” he said. “To replace (everything) will probably cost about $2,000. But I can’t drive without mirrors.”Big Rig Books’ truck mirrors stolen, cancels SWFL stopBy TAMMY AYERFORT MYERS NEWS-PRESS WRITER | STATE NEWS BRIEFSChico’s ramps up rework of its brand as it closes storesFORT MYERS (AP) — Chico’s will close dozens of stores this year, accelerate the shuttering of others and cut the work force at its Florida headquarters as it attempts to remake its retail brand. The company expects to close 120 stores over the next two years, saving it some $55.2 million. About 35 of those stores will close this year. About 240 jobs were eliminated, mostly store managers and workers at its Fort Myers headquarters.Universal Orlando raises ticket pricesORLANDO (AP) — Another Orlando theme park is raising its ticket prices. Less than a week after The Walt Disney Co. announced that prices were going up at its parks in California and Florida, the Orlando Sentinel reports that Universal Orlando is also raising its cost of admission. Spending a day at Universal will now carry a pre-tax cost of $102, up from $96. A child’s ticket price has been raised from $90 to $97. One-day, park-to-park prices are rising from $136 to $147 for adults; children’s tickets are going from $130 to $142. The cost of an annual pass is $189.99 for Florida residents.Sen. Nelson asks feds to investigate Dozier deathsMARIANNA (AP) — Sen. Bill Nelson has asked the Department of Justice to look into the deaths and burials of boys at a now-closed reform school in the Panhandle town of Marianna. In letters sent Tuesday to Attorney General Eric Holder and to President Obama’s nominee to replace Holder, Loretta Lynch, Nelson asked the feds to include the reformatory deaths in its ongoing probe of inmate deaths at Florida prisons. The letter comes on the heels of a report from anthropologists at the University of South Florida who unearthed the remains of 51 people who died at the Dozier School for Boys, 48 of them boy inmates. The Tampa Bay Times reports that’s 20 more than the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said were buried there after an investigation in 2009.Court: State must prove drivers knew they were in a crashTALLAHASSEE (AP) — Authorities must prove drivers knew they were in a crash before charging them with leaving the scene of an accident. The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously agreed with a lower court’s decision to throw out the conviction of a South Florida man charged after he hit a skateboarder. There was no evidence of damage to the truck or skid marks in the 2007 accident. Dorsett said he had his radio and air-conditioning on at the time. adno=50477440 ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT Modern Health &WellnessToxins RemovedRight From theBottom of Your Feet!Nothing works faster orbetter for your overallhealth, energy and vitalitythan this soothing, healingdetox foot pad...and it allhappens while you sleep. =-Doctors are now recommending thatwe take nutritional supplements daily.

Today in historyOn Feb. 27, 1933, Germany’s parliament building, the Reichstag, was gutted by fire. Chancellor Adolf Hitler, blaming the Communists, used the fire to justify suspending civil liberties. On this dateIn 1801, the District of Columbia was placed under the jurisdiction of Congress. In 1814, Ludwig vanBeethoven’s Symphony No.8 in F major, Op. 93, was first performed in Vienna. In 1911, inventor Charles F. Kettering demonstrated his elec tric automobile starter in Detroit by starting a Cadillac’s motor with just the press of a switch, instead of hand-cranking. In 1922, the Supreme Court, in Leser v. Garnett, unanimously upheld the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which guaran teed the right of women to vote. In 1943, during World WarII, Norwegian commandos launched a raid to sabotage a German-operated heavy water plant in Norway. In 1951, the 22nd Amend ment to the Constitution, limiting a president to two terms of office, was ratified. In 1960, the U.S. Olympic hockey team defeated the Soviets, 3-2, at the Winter Games in Squaw Valley, Calif. (The U.S. team went on to win the gold medal.) In 1973, members of the American Indian Movement occupied the hamlet of Wounded Knee in South Dakota, the site of the 1890 massacre of Sioux men, women and children. (The occupation lasted until May.) In 1982, Wayne Williams was found guilty of murdering two of the 28 young blacks whose bodies were found in the Atlanta area over a 22-month period. (Williams, who was also blamed for 22 other deaths, has maintained his innocence.) In 1991, during Operation Desert Storm, President George H.W. Bush declared that “Kuwait is liberated, Iraq’s army is defeated,” and announced that the allies would suspend combat operations at midnight, Easterntime.

(AP) — Two quickfooted llamas dashed in and out of traffic in a retirement community near Phoenix. Television footage showed a large, white llama and a smaller, black llama darting through the streets of Sun City during the lunch hour. Cars and golf carts stopped in their tracks because of the wayward livestock. The animals galloped along the sidewalk, through manicured yards and along street medians. The llamas thwarted numerous attempts by Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies and bystanders to round them up. The smaller, black llama was eventually lassoed. It was unknown if the llamas were anyone’s pets.ODD NEWS 2 llamas run loose in retirement community consistently warm parts of the U.S.,” Cowie said. “People are becoming more aware of it and scientists are looking for it and nding it.” Figuring out how pervasive the worm is in Florida was important because of the human health hazards. Still, humans who don’t eat snails are safe. “Humans can’t become infected with this parasite unless they eat an undercooked or raw snail,” said Heather Walden, the study’s lead author and a professor of parasitology at University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine. “As long as food is cooked and you wash your produce, you will most likely never ingest it.” The rat lungworm was rst reported in humans in Taiwan in 1945, according to the report, and about 3,000 cases have since been reported worldwide, mostly in China, Thailand and the Pacic Islands. Most of the cases involved snails being ingested by humans. In the continental U.S. there has been only one conrmed case of infection from the parasite in the 1990s, when a boy was sickened in Louisiana after eating raw snails. The parasite ourishes because of the symbiotic relationship between snails and rats — rats eat the infected snails, and the snails in turn feed on the rat feces. Since rats and snails are easily transported on ships, the parasite has had ample opportunity to move. Of the ve species of snails tested by University of Florida, three tested positive as hosts for the rat lungworm.LUNGWORMFROM PAGE 1 knew,” said Asim Qureshi of CAGE, a London-based advocacy group which works with Muslims in conict with British intelligence services. Qureshi said he met Emwazi in 2009, but hadn’t had contact with him since January 2012. Qureshi said he saw strong similarities between the man in a beheading video and Emwazi. But he said, “I can’t be 100 percent certain.” “The guy’s got a hood on his head. It’s very, very difcult,” Qureshi said. British anti-terror ofcials wouldn’t conrm the man’s identity, citing a “live counterterrorism investigation.” National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said the U.S. couldn’t conrm or deny the identity, either. Asked whether it was helpful or hurtful to have the jihadi publicly identied, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said that investigators over the last several months “have found it to their advantage to not talk publicly about the details or progress of that investigation.” He didn’t conrm the identity of the suspect. The Center for the Study of Radicalization and Political Violence at King’s College London, which closely tracks ghters in Syria, said it believed the identication was correct. “Jihadi John” appeared in a video released in August showing the slay ing of American journalist James Foley, denouncing the West before the killing. Former IS captives identied him as one of a group of British militants that prisoners had nicknamed “The Beatles.” A man with similar stature and voice also featured in videos of the killings of American journalist Steven Sotloff, Britons David Haines and Alan Hemming and U.S. aid worker AbdulRahman Kassig. According to The Washington Post and the BBC, Emwazi was born in Kuwait, grew up in west London and studied computer programming at the University of Westminster. The university conrmed that a student of that name graduated in 2009. “If these allegations are true, we are shocked and sickened by the news,” the university said in a statement.JOHNFROM PAGE 1 Words matterImagery and language can also make prices go down easier. Florid descriptions for menu items can seem like parodies, but it’s an effective way to make a fairly standard dish sound special. So, you may balk at paying $19 for baked sh and the vegetable of the day, yet gladly pay that for “aky cod marinated in our house sauce, served with country peas.”Hand-eye coordinationThe closer you are to something, the more likely you are to make an impulse buy. It’s why the areas by registers are so crowded with those little extras. If you walk into Starbucks for a $4 latte, the cafe can push up the value of that transaction by 25 percent just by getting you to grab a $1 tin of mints. So while nobody goes to Starbucks specically for mints, a lot of people buy them. By a similar logic, Dunkin’ Donuts began rolling out small display cases on front counters last summer that feature items like cookies and Danish pastries. The thinking is that you’re more likely to get something to nibble on with your drink if it’s practically in your grasp.Controlling the choicesSometimes the choices available will push people to spend more. Sonic, for instance, used to offer two sizes for its shakes: a 14-ounce “regular” and a 20-ounce “large.” In 2012, the drivein chain revamped sizes; the “regular” became a “small” and the “large” became a “regular.” It then added a new 32-ounce “large,” as well as a 10-ounce “mini.” So the people who tend to automatically opt for a “large” were shifted up to a bigger, pricier size. Drinks are a particularly ripe area for what’s known in the industry as “upselling” because people usually don’t pay as much attention to their prices as they do for main dishes, said Kit Yarrow, a professor of consumer psychology at Golden Gate University and author of “Decoding the New Consumer Mind.” Paying 25 cents more for a bigger soda or fries seems like a no-brainer to most people, even if they would’ve been content with the smaller portion.What’s nextIn the future, that drive-thru menu board might just try to read your mind. Or at least predict what you, in particular, might be tempted by. Sonic CEO Cliff Hudson has said the chain is working on ways to have digital menu boards feature items based on the particular customer. The tailored offerings would be possible over time with the help of the mobile app, which is set to launch this spring and would help the company keep track of what people like to order. Already, Starbucks says its email offers to customers with its apps are tailored based on past purchases.TRICKYFROM PAGE 1 victory for democracy in the digital age. In an online letter, he thanked the millions who wrote to the FCC and spoke out on social media in support of the change. “Today’s FCC decision will protect innovation and create a level playing eld for the next generation of entrepreneurs — and it wouldn’t have happened without Americans like you,” he wrote. Verizon saw it differently, using the Twitter hashtag #ThrowbackThursday to draw attention to the FCC’s reliance on 1934 legislation to regulate the Internet. Likewise, AT&T suggested the FCC had damaged its reputation as an independent federal regulator by embracing such a liberal policy. “Does anyone really think Washington needs yet another partisan ght? Particularly a ght around the Internet, one of the greatest engines of economic growth, investment and innovation in history?” said Jim Cicconi, AT&T’s senior executive vice president for external and legislative affairs. Net neutrality is the idea that websites or videos load at about the same speed. That means you won’t be more inclined to watch a par ticular show on Amazon Prime instead of on Netix because Amazon has struck a deal with your service provider to load its data faster. For years, providers mostly agreed not to pick winners and losers among Web trafc because they didn’t want to encourage regulators to step in and because they said consumers demanded it. But that started to change around 2005, when YouTube came online and Netix became increasingly popular. On-demand video began hogging bandwidth, and evidence surfaced that some providers were manipulating trafc without telling consumers. By 2010, the FCC enacted open Internet rules, but the agency’s legal approach was eventually struck down in the courts. The vote Thursday was intended by Wheeler to erase any legal ambiguity by no longer classify ing the Internet as an “information service” but a “telecommunications service” subject to Title II of the 1934 Communications Act. That would dramatically expand regulators’ power over the industry and hold broadband providers to the higher standard of operating in the public interest. The FCC says it won’t apply some sections of Title II, including price controls. That means rates charged to customers for Internet access won’t be subject to preapproval. But the law allows the government to investigate if consumers complain that costs are unfair.INTERNETFROM PAGE 1 ATLANTA (AP) — The curvy Coca-Cola bottle is celebrating its 100th birthday, and an art museum is exploring the origins and inuence of a bottle design that’s so recognizable, you’d know the brand if you held it in the dark. “The Coca-Cola Bottle: An American Icon at 100” opens Saturday at Atlanta’s High Museum and is set to run through Oct. 4. Visitors can see original design illustrations, a prototype of the 1915 design and the work of artists who have been inspired by the now-classic design. Coca-Cola is headquartered in Atlanta. “To do something that not only stays its course for the company over 100 years, but that also becomes a cultural icon that really is recognizable all over the world, is amazing,” said High head of museum inter pretation and exhibition curator Julia Forbes. “It really is a design success story.” The exhibition walks visitors through the history of the bottle’s design, which was conceived as a way to distinguish Coca-Cola from a multitude of imitators. In a 1915 memo, the company asked glass companies to come up with “a bottle which a person could recognize even if they felt it in the dark, and so shaped that, even if broken, a person could tell at a glance what it was.” The Root Glass Company in Terre Haute, Ind., developed the winning design in “Georgia Green” glass with a bulge in the center and ridges down the sides. The exhibition includes a concept sketch and patent for the contour bottle design, both dating from 1915. An original prototype bottle from 1915, one of two known to exist, is also on display. Opposite a display of Coca-Cola bottles through the years are two dozen posters by contemporary designers created in response to an invitation from Coca-Cola last year to imagine the next century. They were instructed to consider attributes like “universal happiness” and “stubborn optimism” and to use the colors red, black and white. An entire gallery in the exhibition is devoted to Andy Warhol. On one wall are two paintings of single Coca-Cola bottles inspired by old ads, one a bit abstract with smudgy lines and the other with lines so crisp and clean it doesn’t even look like a painting. These works from 1961 and 1962 came at the beginning of Warhol’s Pop art style using commercial images. A Warhol quote from 1975 is printed on the gallery wall: “What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks CocaCola, Liz Taylor drinks Coca-Cola, and just think, you can drink Coca-Cola, too.” The exhibition concludes with a gallery of photos from the mid-1930s through the present. In some, the photographer is clearly using a Coca-Cola bottle or logo as art, while in others the bottle and logo just happen to be present.Atlanta Museum looks at Coca-Cola bottle as art AP PHOTOCoca-Cola bottles that take people through the history of the Coca-Cola bottle design are displayed during a preview of the High Museum’s new exhibit, “The Coca-Cola Bottle: An American Icon at 100,” Wednesday, in Atlanta.

Mort Zuckerman, the owner and publisher of the New York City tabloid newspaper, sent a memo to employees on Thursday that said he was approached about a potential sale a few weeks ago. The memo was sent to The Associated Press. “Although there were no immediate plans to consider a sale, we thought it would be prudent to ex plore the possibility and talk to potential buyers and/ or investors,” Zuckerman wrote in the memo. He has hired the nancial advisory rm Lazard to help with the process. Zuckerman did not say who the potential buyer is and his spokesman Tom Goodman had no comment beyond the memo.JC Penney shares slide after 4Q missPLANO, Texas (AP) — Shares of J.C. Penney tumbled Thursday after the struggling retailer posted a surprise loss for the holiday quarter, despite improving sales trends. The company, which is trying to recover from a disastrous reinvention push by former CEO Ron Johnson, said sales rose 4.4 percent at established locations for the period ending Jan. 31 and the year. But the company saw operating expenses edge up and is still working on improving its mix of merchandise to expand margins. Private label clothing brands, for instance, tend to be more protable than name brands for the company. Looking ahead to 2015, J.C. Penney said it expects sales to rise 3 to 5 percent at established locations.Average US rate on 30-year mortgage rises to 3.80 percentWASHINGTON (AP) — Average long-term U.S. mortgage rates have edged up for a third straight week while remaining near their historically low levels reached in May 2013. Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday the nationwide average for a 30-year mortgage rose to 3.80 percent from 3.76 percent last week. The rate for the 15-year loan, a popular choice for people who are renancing, ticked up to 3.07 per cent from 3.05 percent last week. A year ago, the average 30-year mortgage stood at 4.37 percent and the 15year mortgage at 3.39 per cent. Mortgage rates have remained low even though the Federal Reserve in October ended its monthly bond purchases. (AP) — U.S. stocks drifted to a slightly lower nish on Thursday, weighed down by falling energy stocks as the slump in oil prices deepened. Chevron and Exxon Mobil were among the biggest decliners in the Dow Jones industrial average, which eased back from its latest all-time high. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index also slipped below its record high set earlier this week. The Nasdaq composite bucked the trend, creeping within 61 points of its dotcom era record close. Expectations of rising oil supplies sent the price of crude to its lowest level in nearly a month. Benchmark U.S. crude oil fell $2.82 to close at $48.17 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Investors also had to sort through a mix of corporate earnings and U.S. economic reports. “When you have a big move in the market you expect to see it pull back a little bit, catch its breath and wait for that next catalyst to move higher,” said Quincy Krosby, market strategist for Prudential Financial. The Dow ended down 10.15 points, or 0.1 per cent, to 18,214.42. Among individual Dow members, Chevron lost $1.52, or 1.4 percent, to $107.06 while Exxon Mobil slid 95 cents, or 1.1 percent, to $88.65. The S&P 500 index slipped 3.12 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,110.74. The Nasdaq gained 20.75 points, or 0.4 percent, to 4,987.89. The three indexes are all up for the year. The Dow and S&P 500 opened lower on Thursday and held that course most of the day, while the Nasdaq gradually moved higher. The market’s trajectory took shape early on, as traders pored over corporate earnings and economic news. The Commerce Department reported that orders for long-lasting manufactured goods rose 2.8 percent in January, the biggest increase since July. The Labor Department said that applications for unemployment benets rose last week to a seasonally adjusted 313,000, the most in six weeks.Stocks drift mostly lower 0 0

Judge Daniel Rafecas said the documents originally led by the late prosecutor Alberto Nisman failed to meet “the minimal conditions needed to launch a formal court investigation.” “There is not a single element of evidence, even circumstantial, that points to the actual head of state,” the judge said. Nisman had led the complaint just days before he died on Jan. 18 under mysterious circumstances.Explosions in Nigerian towns in north kill at least 34JOS, Nigeria (AP) — Explosions in Nigeria’s north central city of Jos and the northeastern town of Biu over the past two days have killed at least 34 people, witnesses said Thursday. Residents say at least 15 people were killed in two bomb explosions at a bus station and motor park in the city of Jos. Iliyasu Aliyu, a resident there, told The Associated Press he heard a “loud sound” after nishing evening prayer and heard another blast moments later. He said he counted at least 15 bodies. Another resident Mark Lipdo told AP the rst explosion went off at a bus stop near a university. The second bomb detonated near a motor park, he said. On Thursday, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan made an unannounced visit to Mubi in the northeastern Nigerian state of Adamawa, and met with soldiers and the traditional ruler there. The Nigerian military reclaimed Mubi in November after Boko Haram ghters had seized it in October.Aggressive owl sinks its talons into residents of Dutch townPURMEREND, Netherlands (AP) — The residents of one Dutch town are cowering under umbrellas after an aggressive eagle owl started swooping out of the sky, sinking its talons into them and gouging their esh. The so-called “terror owl” has become a media sensation after attacking people in recent weeks in and around Purmerend, 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of Amsterdam. The hardest hit area in town is the Prinsenstichting assisted-living complex for people with disabilities. A spokeswoman for the complex, Lieselotte de Bruijn, said Thursday the owl has attacked up to 20 people there in recent weeks, sometimes causing injuries that required stitches. One Prinsenstichting resident who fell prey to the owl, Niels Verkooijen, told the Dutch news show Hart van Nederland that it was a painful experience. “It was like having a brick laced with nails thrown at your head,” he said. The town has advised residents not to approach the bird and to use umbrellas if they are walking in the evening, when the owl is most active.Chile government rejects 14-year-old’s plea for euthanasiaSANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — Chile’s government on Thursday rejected an ailing 14-year-old girl’s plea to let her “sleep forever.” Cystic brosis sufferer Valentina Maureira posted a YouTube video shot from what appeared to be a hos pital bed asking President Michelle Bachelet to allow her euthanasia. It quickly circulated widely on social media. Presidential spokesman Alvaro Elizalde said Thursday that although “it’s impossible not be overcome by emotion with the girl’s request, it’s impossible to grant her wish” because it’s not allowed under Chilean law.New name for Namibian town is a tongue-twisterJOHANNESBURG (AP) — A linguistic storm is brewing in coastal Luderitz, where some residents of the Namibian town are protesting plans to change its name to !Nami#nus. The name, proposed by some local ofcials and tribal authorities, incorporates click-like sounds in the language spoken by the Nama ethnic group in the southern African nation. Those sounds are often represented in written form with punctuation symbols. But Luderitz resident Crispin Clay said the proposed name could hurt Luderitz’s ability to attract international tourists and might not be recognized by computers and websites. “Nobody’s quite certain how to pronounce or how to spell it,” said Clay, noting that a slight mispronunciation of !Nami#nus sounds like a derogatory term for a woman in the local language.

The Bobcats earned their rst regional title with the win, which also sent them to their rst state nal four appearance.NORTH PORT — The North Port High School boys basketball team thought its coach was crazy. The Bobcats had fallen to 67 two days after Christmas, but Travis Slanger hadn’t wavered on his preseason prediction: He still believed North Port was a nal four team. Sixteen consecutive victories later, the secondyear coach was proven right: The Bobcats will face Blanche Ely in the program’s rst Class 7A state seminal tonight in Lakeland. “They bought in.

Nonetheless, Tampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash has been impressed with all the pitchers he’s seen so far this spring. Especially Chris Archer. “He’s game-ready,” Cash said of the thirdyear righthander. “He’s ready to go.” Archer said his body “feels really good” after four days of workouts. He tried something different in his second bullpen session of the week on Thursday, throwing just 20 “low-effort level” pitches directly over the plate to catcher Rene Rivera.

The freshman out of Venice High School led the team with a 7-1 record and 0.78 earned run average in 10 appearances for the 13-7 Titans. She had a team-high 64 strikeouts in 5323 innings. “She’s pitching well,” coach Breanna Myers said. “We have high expectations.” Kovalsky on Tuesday was named the NCAA Region 8/ Florida College System Activities Association pitcher of the week. She was recognized after going 2-0 by throwing shutouts against Northwest Florida and Indian River state colleges. She struck out 19 in 14 innings. As of Thursday, she tied for third among Region 8 Division I pitchers with a 0.78 ERA and was third in strikeouts. She tied for fth in wins. “I’m really excited for the rest of the season,” Kovalsky said. She has trimmed her pitch repertoire to four. “We needed to focus on making those pitches solid pitches,” Myers said. “She’s done a pretty good job to adapt.” “She has an unorthodox delivery,” the coach said. “It’s harder for people to pick up her pitches.” In addition, Kovalsky has stayed ahead in the count and kept the ball low in the zone, the latter of which Myers said has prompted batters to pop up a lot. Batters have been aggressive, Kovalsky said, swinging early in the count to give themselves a decent chance for contact. Her father has been at games with a radar gun that has clocked her velocity as reaching upper 50 mph, she said. “Most of the batters are trying to get whatever they can,” said Kovalsky, who has handled all 15 of her elding chances. “They know we’re not going to give them anything else once we get ahead of them.” Kovalsky has had a 0.00 ERA in seven of her appearances. Her roughest outing came in her second game, her lone loss. She had a 8.40 ERA against Indian River that game. She has had eight or more strikeouts in six games, with a season-high 10 strikeouts in a win over Northwest Florida State. When she’s not overpowering batters, she’s held her own against pitchers. By far the best hitter among the team’s ve pitchers, she batted .474 with four runs batted in. She tied for the team lead with ve sacrice hits. “Other than pitching, it’s one of my most favorite parts of the game,” she said. “Some colleges don’t allow pitchers to hit.”Kovalsky dominating for St. PetersburgBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT AWAY AT COLLEGE Former Venice hurler ranks third in region for ERA and strikeoutsKOVALSKY | COMMUNITY CALENDARBASEBALLYMCA T-Ball: For ages 3-4, begins March 21.

A wind with gusts that approached 35 mph provided a rude welcome to just about everyone Thursday at the Honda Classic except for Jim Herman, who somehow made it around PGA National without a bogey for a 5-under 65 and a one-shot lead. McIlroy managed to salvage a tough day by holing a 30-foot birdie putt and two-putting for birdie on the 18th hole for a 3-over 73. It was his highest score to par since he opened with a 3-over 74 at The Barclays seven months ago. And he didn’t seem too bothered. The world’s No. 1 player was competing for the rst time since he won in Dubai a month ago. And he wasn’t alone. He played with Dustin Johnson, who birdied his last two holes for a 77, and Phoenix Open winner Brooks Koepka, who shot a 78. Only 19 players managed to break par. Trio shares lead at LPGA Thailand: In Chonburi, Thailand, Yani Tseng shot an opening 6-under 66 to take a share of the lead with American rivals Stacy Lewis and Brittany Lang at the LPGA Thailand. Tseng, a former No. 1 from Taiwan who won the title in Chonburi in 2011 and 2012, had seven birdies and a bogey at Siam Country Club. Lewis, who only got her clubs back on Wednesday after an airline had misplaced them, started with an eagle. She also had six birdies. Lang had five of her eight birdies on the back nine. Henning equals course record at Joburg Open: In Johannesburg, Nic Henning made seven birdies and an eagle and equaled the course record with his 9-under 62 for the first-round lead at the Joburg Open. Henning had five of his birdies and the eagle on the first nine to go out in 29 on the par-71 West Course at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club. The European Tour’s first 59 seemed a possibility then, but Henning made just two birdies coming home.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS GOLF ROUNDUP Herman opens with 65 as McIlroy ails in windRORY STRUGGLESAP PHOTORory Mcllroy hits from the rst tee during the rst round of the Honda Classic on Thursday in Palm Beach Gardens.

The Sun /Friday, February 27, 2015 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 By focusing on throwing every pitch down the middle instead of nibbling at the corners, Archer said, a pitcher can create a muscle memory for how those pitches feel. It’s an idea he got from Cash, who spent a lot of time working with 2014 American League Cy Young winner Corey Kluber in Cleveland the past two seasons. The 26yearold Archer is trying to make the same leap the 28yearold Kluber did last season. Kluber went from a 3.85 ERA and 136 strikeouts in 2013 to a 2.44 ERA, 269 strikeouts and a Cy Young award last year. Archer is coming off a 109 season with a 3.33 ERA and 173 strikeouts. “We’ve had some good talks about the things Kluber did to really jump on the scene,” Archer said. “Because Kluber has always had the stuff; he just hadn’t had the success on that level. And I’m trying to apply some of those things, because he saw it rsthand. He was right there, watched every single bullpen, every single pitch that he threw for the past two years. Not just last year; he saw what he was before. So really, I’m trying to implement some of those things.” Archer also adjusted his offseason routine this winter, changing his mentality from a guy ghting for a spot in the rotation to a guy who knows his role is solidied. “For the past eight years since , I’ve been like, ‘I have to work hard and I have to run my butt off and kill it and have to be laid out after every workout,’” Archer said. “But this year, I would do that for four weeks, then have a week where it would be less intense. Then go hard for three or four weeks, then have a less intense week. So I would just cycle it a little better to pace myself, because I’m thinking those weeks in the offseason are going to help me feel better on the back end.” After jumping from 23 starts and 12823 innings in 2013 to 32 and 19423 innings last year, Archer said he knows what toll a fullseason workload has on his body. Though he had success last September with a 2-2 record and a 2.97 ERA — his second best mark of any month during the season — the right -hander said he spent the month pitching tired. “What good is February and March?” Archer said. “I’m trying to be good April through October.” Just like Kluber was last season.Contact Josh Vitale at 9412061122 or jvitale@sun herald.com.RAYSFROM PAGE 1 SPRING TRAINING FAN DAYWHAT: Autograph sessions, giveaways, music and free hot dogs.

The 43-year-old Jagr had 11 goals and 18 assists in 57 games this season for New Jersey. His playing time has been cut recently and he has gone eight games without a point. Jagr is sixth in NHL history with 716 goals, seventh with 1,068 assists and fth with 1,784 points in 1,530 career regular-season games in 22 years. Florida entered Thursday two points out of the nal playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. In other deals Thursday, Columbus acquired right wing David Clarkson from Toronto in exchange for right wing Nathan Horton. The 29-year-old Horton, a prized signing two years ago, has not played for the Blue Jackets all season because of a degenerative condition in his back. He has 203 goals and 218 assists in 627 NHL games with the Blue Jackets, Boston and Florida. Blackhawks 3, Panthers 0: In Sunrise, Corey Crawford earned his second shutout of the season. Brandon Saad and Teuvo Teravainen scored before Jonathan Toews added an empty-netter with 46.8 seconds left. The Blackhawks won their second consecutive game after previously losing three straight and beat the Panthers for the seventh straight time. The last time the Blackhawks lost to the Panthers was March, 8, 2011. It was the first game for Chicago since losing leading scorer Patrick Kane, who was placed on long-term injured reserve Wednesday with a broken left collarbone suffered in Tuesday’s 3-2 shootout win over the Panthers.BLACKHAWKS 3, PANTHERS 0Chicago 1 1 1 — 3 Florida 0 0 0 — 0 First Period—1, Chicago, Teravainen 3 (A.Shaw, Rundblad), 3:08.

General manager Alex Anthopoulos said Thursday the injury occurred a day earlier and is expected to require surgery. Saunders will seek a second opinion before making a decision. Saunders, acquired from Seattle in a December trade and projected as a starter, said he felt a pop after stepping awkwardly on the sprinkler head while going after a ball at the team’s training facility. “I just tried to walk off the eld and not draw any attention to myself. Then, when I got into the training room, my knee felt like it was getting tight on the inside,” said Saunders, who was on crutches. “I’ve never had any issues with my knees, so that’s when I knew that something was wrong.” Anthopoulos said the team will look internally for a replacement but is open to a trade or freeagent signing. Anthopoulos said Saunders could return before the break in mid-July if there are no complications. Toronto signed twotime Cy Young winner Johan Santana to a minor league contract, hoping the former ace can make it back to the majors. Hamilton awaits fate: Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton was on the minds of his teammates, a day after he was in New York to meet with Major League Baseball officials about an unspecified disciplinary issue. The 33-year-old Hamilton has a history of drug addiction and alcohol abuse, leading to suspensions that cost him more than three years while in the minors. The Angels have confirmed Hamilton’s meeting with MLB, but have declined to give any more information. Hamilton already was expected to be out until after the regular season begins because of the surgery. Cards’ get good news on pitcher: Adam Wainwright was diagnosed with an abdominal strain but the St. Louis ace could be available to pitch the Cardinals’ opener at Wrigley Field on April 5. Wainwright strained the muscle on Monday while putting a 45-pound weight back on a rack. General manager John Mozeliak said the strain is about belt high. “Based on all the different studies and what the doctor saw he feels this was the best news we could have gotten,” Mozeliak said. Mozeliak said Wainwright will avoid running and lifting for at least half a week but can throw. Around the majors: Closer Francisco Rodriguez and Milwaukee agreed to a $13 million, two-year contract, according to a source. The 33-year-old Rodriguez revived his career last season after going 44 of 49 in save opportunities. Giancarlo Stanton saw his first live pitches since his beaning back in September. The Marlins will have to wait at least one more day to watch Stanton take his first swing. While other members of his hitting group swung freely during the Miami’s first live batting practice sessions of the spring, Stanton tracked 10 pitches, five from Henderson Alvarez and five from Brad Hand, into the catcher’s mitt. Comcast SportsNet California announced former Athletics third baseman Eric Chavez is joining Oakland’s broadcast crew.

Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, February 27, 2015 HAMPTON, Ga. — After the glitz of Daytona, it’s time for the NASCAR grind. The Sprint Cup drivers returned to the track Thursday at Atlanta Motor Speedway, getting an extra day to test out the new rules package that will be in effect for the rst time. “This really feels like the start of the season,” said Kyle Larson, who ranked second behind Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Jamie McMurray during the rst practice session on a cool, windy day at the 1.54-mile trioval. The Daytona 500 is in a class of its own, the biggest event of the year coming right at the start of the schedule. The race Sunday will be more in line with the bulk of the grueling schedule, which will lead to a champion nally being crowned in November. Also, since the races at Daytona and Talladega are run with a special restrictor-plate package that was largely unchanged from 2014, this will be the rst event with the new rules. The horsepower has been reduced signicantly, going from 840 to 725, and the rear spoiler was shortened from 8 to 6 inches. Most intriguingly, drivers now have the option of controlling the track bar from inside the car, allowing them to adjust the rear balance during the race, altering the way their machine handles. “It’s nice to put a little bit more in the drivers’ hands,” Larson said. Carl Edwards wasn’t quite as thrilled with his new toy. The switch was installed on the steering wheel, so he worries about making an adjustment inadvertently. Or, even worse, having it get stuck during a change, going to one extreme or the other. “This is an opportunity to screw ourselves up more than it helps us,” said Edwards, getting ready for his second race with the new No. 19 team at Joe Gibbs Racing. “I will probably not mess with mine too much.” McMurray posted the fastest speed during the opening practice, turning a lap of 191.549 mph. Larson was next at 190.195, followed by defending Cup champion Kevin Harvick at 189.850. Speeds dropped off in the second session, led by Jeff Gordon’s lap of 188.424. Edwards was further back but there’s no track he enjoys more than Atlanta, the site of his rst career victory. He couldn’t help but notice a photo in the media center of him beating Jimmie Johnson by just a few feet in that 2005 race. “The picture is kind of hidden behind the coffee machine and the doughnuts,” he quipped, “but that was a turning point in my life.”NASCAR back on track for more testing NASCAR: Sprint CupAfter Daytona, teams adjust to life with new race packageBy PAUL NEWBERRYASSOCIATED PRESS FOLDS OF HONOR QUIKTRIP 500WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: Atlanta Motor Speedway, Hampton, Ga. TV: FOXAP PHOTOJoey Logano celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the Daytona 500 on Sunday in Daytona Beach. After the glitz of Daytona, the Sprint Cup circuit returned to the grind of testing this week at Atlanta Motor Speedway. MONTMELO, Spain — Fernando Alonso was “devoid of injury” following his crash in Formula One preseason testing, McLaren chairman Ron Dennis said Thursday. Dennis, however, said it was still too early to guarantee the Spaniard will be ready to start the season at the Australian Grand Prix on March 15. “He is completely lucid. He wants to drive and test, but the doctors said, ‘If you want him to go to Australia it’s best to rest him,’” Dennis said. “I cannot foresee any reason why (Alonso won’t be ready), but I am not the doctor. It’s not for me to say yes or no.” Alonso is missing the nal preseason test after he crashed on Sunday at the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit. He spent three days in the hospital before going home to recover. Dennis said Alonso’s hospital stay was due to the extra attention all types of head injuries are receiving in sports. Dennis said Alonso did briey loose consciousness and experience “some loss of memory” afterward, but that early symptoms that pointed to Alonso having a concussion were not conrmed later by medical exams.McLaren chairman: Alonso is injury-free AUTO RACING: Formula OneBy JOSEPH WILSONASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUPSouth Carolina rolls over BulldogsCOLUMBIA, S.C. — Tiffany Mitchell scored 16 points and No. 2 South Carolina beat No. 11 Mississippi State 69-50 on Thursday night to clinch a share of its second straight Southeastern Conference regular-season title.

They also would claim the crown alone should the Lady Vols fall Sunday against Vanderbilt. No matter what happens, South Carolina heads to next week’s SEC tournament as the No. 1 seed and team to beat. The Gamecocks showed that again, using an 18-5 rst-half run to take a 39-23 lead.

They’re on a short list of players to get into such an offensive “zone” that their performances led to memorable scoring outbursts. Rathan-Mayes, a little-known freshman guard from Canada, erupted for 30 points in the nal 4:38 in Wednesday’s failed comeback at Miami. “It was a crazy feeling just to be locked into a zone like that,” Rathan-Mayes said Thursday. “I was telling my dad earlier that I’d never been in a zone like that.” He went 8-for-10 from the eld, 6-for-8 from 3-point range and 8-for-9 at the foul line during his urry, all while checking in and out of the game late due to foul trouble. He almost single-handedly erased an 18-point decit before FSU lost 81-77. Rathan-Mayes, who came in averaging 13.6 points, nished with 35 points to tie his program freshman record set in last month’s loss at North Carolina. He also passed Bob Sura for FSU’s single-season freshman scoring record during the game. Coach Leonard Hamilton said he was so disappointed with the loss it took time to realize what RathanMayes had done. “I hadn’t (immediately) accepted the fact that I’d just witnessed a youngster do something that is extremely rare,” Hamilton said. In a tip of the hat to Rathan-Mayes’ big game, here’s a look at some other memorable scoring outbursts: WILT’S 100: The points had better come in bunches to hit 100 in a game. And that’s exactly what Wilt Chamberlain did in March 1962. During a scoring performance that still stands as the NBA’s best, Chamberlain followed a 28-point third quarter by scoring 31 in the fourth on 12-for-21 shooting along with going 7-for-10 at the line, according to STATS. He played all 48 minutes in the 169-147 win against New York. BRYANT’S 81: Kobe Bryant came the closest to Wilt’s 100 in January 2006 with 81 points. The Los Angeles Lakers star scored 55 points after halftime, racking up 27 points on 11-for-15 shooting in the third quarter and 28 more in the fourth. Bryant finished 28-for-46 from the field, 7-for-13 from 3-point range, and 18-for-20 at the foul line. PISTOL PETE: No one in college basketball ever scored like “Pistol” Pete Maravich. The LSU guard still holds the NCAA’s career record with 3,667 points and 44.2-point career average. In a career filled with 50and 60-point games, Maravich’s best output came in February 1970 at Alabama, where he went for 69 points — 47 after halftime — on 26-for-57 shooting along with going 17-for-21 on free throws in the 106-104 loss. MILLER TIME: Hard to believe, but May marks 20 years since Indiana Pacers guard Reggie Miller singlehandedly pulled off a shocking comeback. With his team trailing by six in Game 1 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference semifinals, Miller scored eight points in the final 18.7 seconds to beat the New York Knicks 107-105 in Madison Square Garden. After hitting a 3 over John Starks, Miller stole the ensuing inbounds pass, took a quick dribble to step behind the arc and buried another 3 to tie it with 13.2 seconds left. Then after Starks missed two free throws, Miller was fouled on a rebound and hit two free throws for the lead with 7.5 seconds left. The always-talkative Miller walked off the MSG court in defiant celebration yelling “Choke artists!” and sealing the moment in NBA playoff lore. SLEEPY’S MARK: It isn’t Bryant or Michael Jordan who own the NBA playoff record for scoring in a half and a quarter. It’s Eric “Sleepy” Floyd. In the 1987 playoffs, Floyd set records with 29 points and 12 field goals in a quarter, as well as 39 points in a half for Golden State in a Western Conference semifinals win against the Lakers.By AARON BEARDASSOCIATED PRESSFSU’s Xavier-Mayes turned heads with scoring outburst of 30 points in 4:38 AP PHOTOFlorida State’s Xavier Rathan-Mayes shoots over North Carolina’s Marcus Paige on Jan. 24 in Chapel Hill, N.C.

James added 11 rebounds, outplaying fellow MVP candidate Stephen Curry and leading Cleveland past the team with the NBA’s best record for its 11th straight home victory. Curry scored 18 points, but had only six after the rst quarter and was 5 of 17 from the eld. David Lee led Golden State (4411) with 19 points.

Kevin Love added 16 points for the Cavaliers.TENNISVenus, Azarenka set up Qatar Open semifinal: In Doha, Qatar, Venus Williams beat Agnieszka Radwanska for the second time this year to line up two-time champion Victoria Azarenka in the Qatar Open semifinals. Williams, who beat Radwanska to reach the Australian Open quarterfinals last month, won 6-4, 1-6, 6-3, the third time in four days she’s gone the distance. Azarenka, the 2012 and 2013 champ who received a wild-card entry, beat third-seeded Caroline Wozniacki 6-3, 6-1 in another repeat result from the Australian Open. Andy Murray was knocked out of the Dubai Championships, losing to 18-year-old Borna Coric 6-1, 6-3 in the quarterfinals. Murray, who reached the Australian Open final at the beginning of the month, had 55 unforced errors and only 15 winners against the Croatian teen. Many of his shots were landing in the net or sailing beyond the lines. Second-seeded Tommy Robredo defeated Renzo Olivo 6-1, 6-2 to advance to the quarterfinals of the Argentina Open in Buenos Aires. Top-seeded Kei Nishikori beat fifth-seeded Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-4, 6-4 to reach the Mexico Open semifinals.

The 82-year-old Dooley, who won 201 games and the 1980 national championship at Georgia, will be in Honduras on March 19 for the dedication of the Vince Dooley Field. The soccer facility is located at an elementary and middle school in the Agalta Valley. It will be Dooley’s third trip to Honduras, where he has supported efforts to provide youth an alternative to gang and drug violence.

Meyers Taylor and Garrett have a shot to become the first U.S. women’s team to win a world title. The final two heats are on Saturday. They have a comfortable lead of .39 seconds, after breaking the course record in the first two heats. Marit Bjoergen collected one of the few records she didn’t already have as Norway easily won the 4x5-kilometer relay at the world championships in Falun, Sweden. It was Bjoergen’s 14th world title to go with four silvers and three bronze medals, putting her ahead of Russian great Yelena Valbe, who won 14 golds and three silvers.

JUDICIARYVideo shows Hernandez dancing before killing: In Fall River, Mass., ex-New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez ran up a $243 bar tab and smoked marijuana in the hours before the boyfriend of his fiancee’s sister was shot to death, according to testimony Thursday at his murder trial. Just over an hour before the killing of Odin Lloyd on June 17, 2013, video surveillance shows Hernandez walking unsteadily at a gas station and dancing near the gas pumps. The video also shows a co-defen dant, Carlos Ortiz, wearing a white towel around his shoulders. A white towel was found near Lloyd’s body later that morning in an industrial park not far from Hernandez’s home. Prosecutors haven’t said who shot Lloyd but said Hernandez orches trated the killing.COLLEGE FOOTBALLNacita says disre garding guidance from Baylor was mistake: In Waco, Texas, former Baylor running back Silas Nacita said he made a mistake by “disregarding guidance” from the school’s compliance department and accepting benefits that led to him being removed from the team. Baylor announced Tuesday that Nacita, whose story of overcoming an unstable family situation to play major college football made him a fan favorite, was no longer part of the program. The school’s announcement came not long after Nacita posted on Twitter he had been ruled ineligible.COLLEGE BASKETBALLEx-Louisville guard Jones pleads not guilty to rape, sodomy: In Louisville, Ky., former University of Louisville basketball player Chris Jones pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of rape and sodomy, days after being dismissed from the team.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, February 27, 2015 average margin of victory. Blanche Ely has won state championships in two of the past three years, and coach Melvin Randall has made seven nal four appearances and won ve Florida state titles in his coaching career. But Slanger has prepared the Bobcats (22 -7) for this, senior Vic Sinopoli said. The coach put together a challenging schedule that included two games at the City of Palms Classic, where North Port played Webster Grove (ranked No. 6 in Missouri) and Reserve Riverside Academy (ranked No. 1 in Louisiana). “Everybody was like, ‘Oh there’s no way you guys are going to do well; those teams are amazing,’” Sinopoli said of the Bobcats’ City of Palms slate: They lost by seven and 26 points, respectively. “We wanted to play that high level of basketball at the beginning of the season so we were ready to win the big games down the season like elite eight games and nal four games.” “We felt like, if we can play with anyone in the City of Palms, then we can denitely play with anyone in the area,” fellow senior Teddy Deas added. “We kept working hard, and now we’re on this streak.” North Port isn’t worry ing too much about the streak or its opponent. The Bobcats are more concerned with what they’re doing; it got them to where they wanted to go, and they hope its going to push them even further tonight. “We have to keep doing what we’re doing,” senior Malek Barber said. “Our whole team has bought into what coach Slanger and (assistant) coach (Tom McLaughlin) and all the coaching staff are preparing us to do, and that’s leading us down the right path.

That may seem like a lofty goal for a program competing on the varsity level for the rst time. “I’m an optimistic guy,” McCabe said. Two of those wrestlers are Jarrad Heyer, a 145-pound junior in his rst year of wrestling, and Lucas Willis, a 12-year-old sixth-grader who wrestles at 106 pounds and trains at the Brandon Wrestling Club. Heyer owns a 7-11 record, but McCabe believes he has a chance because of his rapid development as the season has progressed. “He’s a hard worker,” McCabe said. “He’s been a sponge. He’s absorbed all the technique and skills I’ve shown him. And he has a gas tank. He’ll go into a third period losing, and he’ll win because he’s in such good shape. “The last few weeks it’s clicked for him.” Heyer, who lives in North Port, came to Imagine School to play football, but when the program was cancelled, “it was between soccer and wrestling,” he said. “I picked wrestling because I wanted to stay active.” He said he really began improving on the mat when he started to visualize his technique. “After practice, I would imagine moves in my head and picturing things,” he said. “It just clicked.” Heyer has no illusions about how far he can go in his rst year in the sport. “Hopefully, I’ll make it to regionals,” he said. “At regionals, my season will end. There are denitely better wrestlers out there than me. I know I’ll be wrestling next year, so I hope to make states then.” Willis, who is 16-3, has loftier goals. “I want to win districts and at least make it to states,” said Willis, who lives in North Port. His father, Larry, got him interested in the sport and coaches him. “My dad works me out every day,” said Willis, who not only trains at Brandon but drills with his two brothers on a mat in the family garage. Later this spring, Willis plans to compete in a national tournament in Iowa and “win it.” McCabe said he’s lucky to have Willis. “He’s aggressive and very technical,” McCabe said. “For a 12-year-old, he’s technically beyond other wrestlers. Anybody he wrestles, he’s far above technically. “He’s been training at Brandon his entire life and I just get the joy of coaching him as a sixth-grader.” McCabe has one other wrestler for whom he has high hopes: Matt Combs, a sophomore who wrestles at 152 pounds. “He’s had previous experience, but he’s very, very raw,” McCabe said of Combs, who has a 4-7 varsity record. “He has a lot of natural ability. There were a lot of bad habits we had to break, but lately he has turned it on.”DISTRICTFROM PAGE 1 POSTSEASON GLANCEREGIONAL TOURNAMENTS March 6, 7 TICKETS: $7 Class 3A-2: at Osceola (Kissim miee) Class 2A-3: at Charlotte, Class 1A-3: at Lakeland STATE TOURNAMENT March 13-14 at Silver Spurs Arena, Kissimmee TICKETS: $9 (Parking: $7) Judge rules in favor of PetersonBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSA federal judge opened the door for faster reinstatement of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, ruling an NFL arbitrator “failed to meet his duty” in a child abuse case that brought national backlash for the league and widened its rift with the players’ union. This was the second high-prole defeat in the last six months for Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL, that case concerning punishment for former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice. On Thursday, U.S. District Judge David Doty overruled NFL arbitrator Harold Henderson’s December denial of Peterson’s appeal. Doty said the league cannot retroactively apply the standards of its new, tougher personal conduct policy to an action by Peterson that occurred before the policy was in place. The league suspended Peterson through at least April 15 under the new standard, which arose from the furor over the handling of the assault involving Rice. But Doty said in his 16-page ruling that Henderson “simply disregarded the law of the shop and in doing so failed to meet his duty” under the collective bargaining agreement. NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith said in a statement Doty’s decision was a “victory for the rule of law, due process and fairness.” The NFL said it will review the decision. Bills target McCown: A person familiar with talks told The Associated Press that the Buffalo Bills are in negotiations to sign veteran free agent quarterback Josh McCown. The talks began after the 35-year-old spent the previous two days visiting with the Cleveland Browns. Two weeks ago, McCown spent two days meeting with Bills officials and touring Buffalo. He has also visited Chicago and the New York Jets. Player moves: Jacksonville released veteran cornerback Will Blackmon, giving younger players more opportunity at the position. Blackmon has played eight years in the league, spending time with Green Bay, the New York Giants and Seattle. Atlanta released running back Steven Jackson, who in two seasons with the team couldn’t recapture his 1,000-yard form that made him one of the league’s top backs with the Rams. Indianapolis and Matt Hasselbeck agreed to a one-year contract extension to back up Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. A 16-year NFL veteran, Hasselbeck originally signed with the Colts as a free agent two years ago. St. Louis released defensive tackle Kendall Langford, who lost his starting spot to rookie Aaron Donald last season. The move frees up $6 million in salary cap space heading into free agency. Arizona Cardinals re-signed tackle Bradley Sowell and signed free agent cornerback Damond Smith to one-year contracts. Kansas City waived veteran tight end Anthony Fasano, freeing up about $2 million in salary cap space that they could use to keep All-Pro linebacker Justin Houston. Tennessee left tackle Michael Roos announced his retirement from the NFL after playing 10 seasons and 148 games with the Titans with a posting on Instagram. NFL NOTEBOOK won the 169-pound class with a 615-pound total lift. Marinola, a senior, lifted a bench press of 340 pounds and a clean and jerk best of 275 pounds. The Manta Rays augmented Marinola’s points with three second-place efforts from Vince Messina at heavyweight (590 total lift), Chance Galloway at 199 pounds (535) and Paul Leonor at 139 (425). Lemon Bay also had several nishers in the third to fth places. Charlotte took third as a team on the strength of three rst-place nishes. Cainyn Cooper won the heavyweight class with a 610 total. He had a 355 in the bench press and a 255 in the clean and jerk. Chase Sheppard took the 183 division with a 570 total (315-255). Jakari Mayers won the 199 division with a 540 total (300-240). Port Charlotte’s Aaron Wertz won the 219 division with a 605 total (310-295). The Pirates’ Simeon Beckford was second in the same weight class with a 575 total. North Port’s Brandon Caster nished second at 154 with a 440-pound total.

The U.S. Navy Band is on a 22-city tour of the Southeast United States, and will perform March 3 in Punta Gorda. When the USS Ganges set sail in May 1798, among the ship’s crew were two musicians, a fer and a drummer. From that humble beginning, the U.S. Navy Band has grown into one of the most respected musical groups, obtaining the title “The World’s Finest,” bestowed upon them by the American Bandmaster’s Association. Charlotte County residents will be able to listen to “The World’s Finest” at 7 p.m. on March 3 when the band performs at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center, 75 Taylor St., Punta Gorda. The event is sponsored by the Charlotte Harbor Chapter of the Military Ofcers Association of America. Admission is free. Retired U.S. Air Force Col. Ennis Bisbano, the band chairman for the association, said the event is sold out, but people can still come. “Last time we had about 200 people we allowed in with no tickets,” he said. “So people can show up and they might get in.

Not only do we have the opportunity to show students a real-life application of reading and writing, as well as their importance in society, but we also have the opportunity to share our experiences of working in an ever-evolving industry. Through my role as the editor of the Punta Gorda Herald, I work with students from Charlotte High School through the Tarpon Page. On this weekly page, which appears on page 15 today, you can read stories penned by CHS students. From story conception and interviews to taking photographs and typing up their notes into clear and concise articles, these students do it all. I visit these students a few times a year to review their work and help them hone their craft. While many do not seek out journalism as a career, quite a few are able to package their published works into applications for future jobs, internships and college admissions. I also have the honor of visiting the other schools in Punta Gorda to speak about journalism and my experiences in the eld. Typically, this is done in English, yearbook and history classes at the middleand high-school levels. In November, however, I had the unique opportunity to pay a visit to East Elementary School, where I spoke to the kids who make up the Eagle Nest News crew. To say I was impressed is an un derstatement. Not only is it rare for students this young to be considered published authors, but these up-andcoming writers are an inspirational bunch with a true passion for the written word. Cheryl Domingo, school counselor and Eagle Nest News sponsor, should be applauded for helping promote liter acy in such a novel way at the school. Gordon Bower wrote a story on the young newsies; it appears on page 16 and is denitely worth a read. Education is key to a healthy society, and I am thrilled to see such a strong focus on literacy projects in our schools.Promoting literacy at the schools Pamela Staik PGH EditorPamela Staik is the editor of the Punta Gorda Herald.

Herald Page 4 Friday, February 27, 2015 Oh, what an week we at the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce had leading up the Wine & Jazz Festival on Feb. 21. The 10th-annual event proved to be another huge success, with Dave Koz, Mindi Abair and Nick Colionne all giving performances that will be remembered forever. This event truly takes months of preparation. In fact, plans for 2016 are already underway. I'll guarantee that VIP tickets for 2016 will be sold out by April of this year. Unless you are in the event-planning business or a chamber board director, staff member or volunteer, you really would not comprehend the amount of planning and effort that goes into preparing for an event of this magnitude. We want to thank all of our sponsors, volunteers and participants for a job well done. My special thanks goes to Pat Oliva who, every year, burns the midnight oil, making nal preparations to ensure the event goes off without a hitch. This year we fought weather delays with merchandise arriving from up north, which caused a few moments of concern, but everyone pulled together to make the entire weekend a very special celebration for the city. Thanks also to Presley Beane Financial services for their support of our VIP reception and Sunday Jazz Brunch. Thanks to Peace River Distributing, Big Crush Wines, OPICI Wines, Wines of Provence and Mascarelli Wines for being the wine merchants of the event. We also wish to thank the Isles Yacht Club, Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club, Big Cheese Gourmet Shop, Big Geroy’s BBQ & Catering, Carmelo’s Italian Ristorante and Culligan Water for providing the food and water components. A very special thanks to OPUS restaurant for being this year's VIP food provid er and making more than 500 VIP guests very happy. The list of thank yous could go on — CeJay Associates, the Visual Arts Center, David Sussman, iHeart Media, the Charlotte Sun , Sandy Pond, etc. But to all, we wish you a very heartfelt thank you. The festival was a very special day for many, many people to see such talent perform in this great city.Chamber seeking feedbackThe Punta Gorda Chamber would like your feedback.

Sadly, since the 1960s, most theaters have eliminated them and instead show coming attractions. “The old Flash Gordon and Three Stooges 20-minute lms are now gone,” he said. “Theater owners today make more money from previews and concessions.” LeClaire formed Asbury Shorts USA in 1981, described as a “non-competitive touring exhibition of award-winning short lms. It is the longest-running concert of its kind in New York City. “I don’t use the word festival,” he said. “There are no awards given out. It is an evening of classic and new short lms from around the world for an audience to enjoy.” On March 11, LeClaire will bring his 90-minute concert to Punta Gorda. The event, to be held in the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center, 75 Taylor St., Punta Gorda, will showcase Oscar winners and nominees from around the globe. It is sponsored by the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce and the Charlotte Harbor Ofce of Film and Digital Media. LeClaire said they will feature 11 short lms at the March concert — the maximum time is 20 minutes but some are just 2 to 11 minutes in length. The lms range from comedy to drama and animation. Born in Brooklyn, New York, but raised on Long Island, LeClaire produced commercials until he did a 1-year stint doing college lms. “That inspired me to make it bigger, so I started Asbury Shorts,” he said. “I just love independent lms, so I wrote two screenplays and directed two short lms. HBO was looking for ller time ,and they aired my 5-minute short clip 20 times.” After his success, LeClaire said he concentrated his efforts on being a pro ducer of national television commercials and national cable network promos for Lifetime, Comedy Central, MTV, Oxygen, WE TV, NBC and ABC TV networks. After Sept. 11, 2001, LeClaire was the production supervisor for a number of television spots produced by New York City for public service announcements. These short spots featured actor Kevin Bacon, comedian Ben Stiller, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, NBCTV weatherman Al Roker, actor Harrison Ford and Oscar winner Woody Allen. “We’ve been on the road now for about 10 years,” he said. “And it’s growing each year. We present the best of the short lms from amazingly talented independent lm makers.” LeClaire said it can take anywhere from one to two years to make a short lm. One example is “Time Freak,” an Oscar-nominated lm produced by a married couple. “They had just married before they began the project and used their entire wedding nest egg to do it,” he said. “They did it all — the editing, scriptwriting, music, everything. It was the rst step in their career path.” Another great lm is “Asad,” a 2013 Oscar nominee, shot in South Africa by Bryan Buckley, who directed more than 50 Super Bowl commercials. “It took him about a year,” LeClaire said. “He has the nancing and was able to make the lm in record time.” In a business that is difcult to get a break in, directors and producers use what is called a visual business card, which includes a DVD promoting their work. LeClaire said he travels to about 20 cities, including New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago. He recently returned from Nova Scotia, Berlin and London for the rst time. He just returned from Vero Beach, where his show was a tremendous success. “We actually did two shows in Vero Beach,” he said. “I was a little apprehensive, but both sold out. London, Berlin and Nova Scotia were incredible. We have already been invited back next year to Nova Scotia. Our home-run show was in Central Park in 2010 — 1,700 people attended. The show opened with the Charles Mingus Quintet. Although Charles has passed away, his wife is still promoting the group.” Bringing the show to Punta Gorda has been a wonderful experience, LeClaire said. He wants audiences to view the short-lm genre, a lost art that has been largely forgotten. “We are just trying to keep the shortlm ame alive,” LeClaire said.Award-winning producer brings short-film concert to town Al Hemingway PGH CorrespondentAl Hemingway is a freelance writer.

Herald Page 8 Friday, February 27, 2015 Navy Band usually doesn’t do outside concerts in the event of bad weather.” Accompanying the band on their national tour will be the Sea Chanters, the U.S. Navy’s ofcial chorus. The ensemble performs a variety of music ranging from traditional choral music to sea chanteys, patriotic fare, opera, Broadway tunes and contemporary music. Chief Petty Ofcer Adam Grimm, the public affairs ofcer for the band, said their primary mission is to entertain sailors stationed around the globe who are away from their families for months at a time. “The band consists of four ofcers and 174 enlisted personnel,” he said. “We have a total of six groups besides the band and chanters. We have a ceremonial band that plays at the White House and at funerals in Arlington National Cemetery. They do about 800 funerals a year.” Grimm said the band tries to reach out to young people to inspire them. They hold a clarinet day at the band building in Washington, D.C., as part of their community service program. “We can play any style of music,” he said. “We have a big variety, both old and new. Every one of our concerts we always do a salute to veterans.” Bisbano said that nine high school students — three each from Charlotte, Lemon Bay and Port Charlotte high schools— will perform with the band. “Getting a military band here and getting the students to perform with them is part of our community outreach program,” he said. Grimm said the band will celebrate its 90th birthday the day following the concert. Although the band has been performing for years, it was ofcially established in 1925. “If you walk out of the concert and were not entertained, you must’ve been sleeping,” he said. For more information about this concert, visit the band’s website at www. navyband.navy.mil/national_tour.shtml.NAVY BANDFROM PAGE 1 U.S. NAVY PHOTOThe U.S. Navy Band will be performing at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center on March 3.

Friday, February 27, 2015 Herald Page 11 Excerpts from 40 years ago Punta GordaDo you remember when?FROM OUR ARCHIVES Janine Smith 40 Years AgoJanine Smith writes about Punta Gorda’s historic past. Contact her at janinehs1@ comcast.net. The following excerpts are from the Daily Herald-News from Feb. 22, 1975, through Feb. 28, 1975:Charlotte County historical group revitalizedThe Charlotte County Commission revitalized the Charlotte County Historical Commission with the appointment of seven members. They were Rachel Ward and Penny Penner, both to a two-year term; as well as D. Frank Smoak, George Lane Jr., U.S. Cleveland, Earle Davis and Vernon Peeples, who were appointed to a four-year term. Creation of the historical commission was encouraged by the Charlotte County Bicentennial Commission in conjunction with the nation’s 200th birthday in 1976. The historical society will have quarterly programs for the membership. They will be involved with funding scholarships, recognition and restoring historical sites, developing a Charlotte County archives and promoting interest in local history. Florida is a tourist state, but Charlotte County has a rich history that warrants exploration, according to Lane.Laishley named mayor for second termThe Punta Gorda City Council named Phil Laishley to a second term as mayor during Tuesday night’s meeting. Two new councilmen were seated to begin their rst terms on the council, following the recent runoff election. Councilman J. Alvin Waits was elected assistant mayor. Laishley presented plaques to departing council members Horace Waters and Joyce Hindman.Morning fire damages Palmer Furniture StoreFire almost claimed another “victim” in Charlotte County when a blaze was discovered at the Palmer Furniture store on West Marion Avenue, Punta Gorda, early this morning. An alert truck driver spotted the ames and notied the re department quickly. Punta Gorda Fire Chief George Hill indicated that the re appeared to have been deliberately set. Store owner Robert J. Bacon is convinced that this is true. Charles Paudin, a Publix Supermarket truck driver, saw the ames as he drove through the city.Women’s editor chosenThe appointment of Rosemarie Baker as women’s editor of the Daily HeraldNews was announced today by Corbin Wyant, publisher. Baker replaces Barbara Gunn, who joined the newspaper last August. The new women’s editor previously worked for the Sarasota Journal and the Fort Myers News-Press in the Charlotte County bureaus and served as president of the Press Club. W.S. Alexander Fire Station dedicatedDedication of the W.S. Alexander Fire Station by the South Charlotte Fire Department drew about 125 people this weekend. The station was built at the total cost of $50,000 and was named after Alexander, who began working for the organization of re protection in South Charlotte County in 1963.In the service Cadet Charles Burke received Gold Stars for academic achievement during the rst semester of the 1974-75 school year at The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina. At The Citadel, a Gold Star is the symbol of the highest scholastic rating. Burke is in his junior year at the military college and has won Gold Stars two times. Burke is the son of Mr. and Mrs. C.D. Burke of Capri Isles Court, Punta Gorda. Marine Pvt. Martin K. Quetor graduated from recruit training at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, South Carolina. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth O. Quetor of Windmill Village, Punta Gorda.Today in history — Feb. 27 In 1846: William Cody, the American frontier scout and showman known as “Buffalo Bill,” was born in Scott County, Iowa.

After shing in the duck pool, 2-year-old Jordyn Corbin won a tiny duck necklace. By TYRA DROUILLARDCHS SOPHOMOREWhile high school students have been associated with a few unorganized habits, such as not putting away their clean laundry and failing to wash their dirty dishes, many at Charlotte High School have taken their messy ways to the trunks of their cars. And one such student is Isabella Drudi, a senior. After long school days, extracurricular activities and work, Drudi said there is just not enough time to clean out her trunk. “When I go home, I just throw every thing in it and don’t even think about it,” she said. Although she has been known to clean out her trunk and regularly sets a goal to clean out the mess, sometimes the mess builds until Drudi gives up on the idea of getting organized. When Drudi was in a car accident, it took her more than an hour just to get all of the stuff out of the car before they could take it in for repairs. Junior Amanda Langley also suffers from a messy car. “I just kinda don’t take things out,” Langley said. Her mess came about after keeping a rather busy schedule of school and work with little downtime. When she rst got the car about a year ago, she intensely cleaned it and kept it tidy. But that only lasted for about a month. She also attributes much of the mess to school, and hopes to have a cleaner car this summer.Student drivers take a look at their trunks H H H TARPON PAGE PUNTA GORDA CONTRIBUTORSTarpon Page contributors are students at Charlotte High School.

Drudi has been too busy to clean her trunk out, but said it will happen soon enough. Between work and school, Charlotte High School junior Amanda Langley said she hasn’t been cleaning her trunk out like she knows she should be. “It got a lot messier when school started, so maybe it will get cleaner over summer,” Langley said. Despite the cold, Janiana Perez, a fth-grader, removed her shoes to enjoy the giant carnival slide. Betsy Williams PhotojournalistBetsy Williams is a freelance photographer.

Herald Page 16 Friday, February 27, 2015 In an age when most children think writing amounts to a few abbreviated words in a 160-character tweet, it’s very refreshing to nd some elementary schoolers determined to write — and to write well. That’s the case at East Elementary School, where guidance counselor Cheryl Domingo leads an after-school group of fourthand fth-grade students publishing a school newsletter four times a year. It’s called the East Elementary Eagle Nest News, and it actually has news in it. Domingo is a retired U.S. Army war rant ofcer who took up education as a second career and has always loved to read and write. She jumped at the chance to work with students on their writing skills. During a recent photo session and interview with six of her young scribes, she said, “I adopted this group as kind of an opportunity. Personally, I really like to write, and it’s really an opportunity to help a group of kids who want to write. These fth-graders here today are among the best writers in the class.” Domingo calls the weekly after-school newsletter sessions a class because they really are, albeit with a layer of fun on top. She said, “I wanted to make it fun, but you have to do it at school and work. You have to write. Some make up their own topics; some are assigned, like the ‘Teacher Spotlight.’ They really like to write about fun things they do, like Lacey’s (Beach) trip to the Shell Factory and Elyssa (Malicki) and her running. I try to get four pages of stuff the kids want to read about. It’s by the kids for the kids.” There’s no doubt newsletter members are excited about their publication. The talkative group of live wires concluded they would all have carpal tunnel if they wrote stories as fast as they talked about them. The mechanics of the publication process are simple and straightforward. Domingo edits the contributions, saves them to a thumb drive and lays out the four-page newsletter, complete with graphics and cartoons. From there, it goes to the school district print shop. “The turn-around time is pretty quick, usually two or three days,” she said. “These guys (the newsletter students) help with distribution. We print 300 copies, and every third-, fourthand fth-grader gets one, with 25 left over.” The young writers’ parents, not surprisingly, understand the value of writing skills and are enthusiastic about the newsletter. Domingo said, “I’ve talked to a few of them after school when they are picking their kids up. They say the kids love it, and they denitely support it.” The young writers all back up their parents’ positive words, and some even aspire to writing careers. Malicki said, “I do think it’s fun, and I think it will help us become a writer. It’s fun to make up your own stories.” Beach wants to be a travel writer and Trent Giammo a comic writer. Hailey Crawford can’t wait to write a story about dancing, her favorite hobby, and the same for Ashton Shields and animals. Tyrion Morris loves the written word so much he takes a ashlight to bed so he can read. He’s also the cartoonist for the newsletter. No one is happier about the newsletter than Domingo, despite the extra hours it can add to her work load. “It’s a great group of kids,” she said. “I enjoy the whole process; they are just so creative.”Budding writers hone their craft at East Elementary HERALD PHOTO BY GORDON BOWERTrent Giammo, Tyrion Morris, Hailey Crawford, Elyssa Malicki, Lacey Beach and Ashton Shields gather in guidance counselor Cheryl Domingo’s oce to discuss East Elementary School’s Eagle Nest News, which they publish four times a year.
