Charlotte SunAND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000 A community paper is a unique forum to help foster local debate. Reader personalities are as varied as the color spectrum. We appreciate all of them, including the bright reds. One of the more vocal members of the Punta Gorda Tea Party likes to take us to task. Some of his thoughts are below. “It is a mystery to us so-called ‘right wingers’ (as the Sun portrays us), why so many so-called intelligent Americans, such as you, have totally bought into the tactics of radical religion of environmentalism/eco-fascism. It appears many of the editors at the Sun are true believers of such radicalism and its ‘cause,’ and hence you automatically ally yourself with Saul Alinksy (Rules for Radicals) via his doctrine to defeat capitalism. The phrase used by Alinsky to marshal his troops/you for that cause is ‘The ends justify the means.’ “The environmental movement, which your paper is so enamored with, has been designated the spearhead of Agenda 21 for it has been chosen by the global elites to instill the required fear into Americans via outright liesThe environmental movement’s primary objective is to desensitize Americans to the effects of dictatorship and, under nancial pressure forced on most Americans, gain their acquiescence of tyranny. “I contend private ownership of land and unfettered private property rights (reective of the natural law of the Creator and validated by the U.S. Constitution) sets the solid base for wealth creation in the nation and for the American people. “Based on the constant drumbeat at the Sun of conveying your support for larger government, larger bureaucracies, bigger socialistic based programs, and more and more government spending, it is easy to reach the conclusion the Sun , based on its unyielding Green mindset, is readily willing to have government positioned to readily diminish the constitutional rights of Americans (via an ‘ends justify the means’ mentality) to reach the lofty, Utopian goal of Saving the Environment/ Planet, which intelligent people know (including Einstein) cannot ever be attained.” The dialogue we engage in with all our different types of readers is refreshing and stimulating. This reader does have a point. Your community newspaper believes the primary selling points of Florida are low taxes, sunshine and a clean outdoor environment for people to use their low taxes and sunshine to enjoy. Your community newspaper believes appropriate stewardship of the environment is therefore in the best interest of business. We also think that preserving green space actually lowers taxes for Floridians over the long term. Most studies demonstrate clearly that farm, ranch and forestland generate signicantly more in revenue than they require in public ser vices. Residential development consumes signicantly more in government services than it contributes in tax revenue. We know from Florida’s history that completely unfettered private property rights have caused great harm. Charlotte Harbor used to be full of shellsh, even supporting a commercial shellsh industry. Our permanently damaged harbor ecosystem struggles to support shellsh now. There is a balance between private property rights, which are about individual ownership and the environment, which is owned by all of us. Striking the right balance is sometimes difcult. The right balance can be hard for an Agenda 21, Saul Alinsky-loving, socialist, environmentally fascist newspaper, but also for Godfearing, Constitution-loving, real American tea party members. All the colors of the spectrum combine to create light. Maybe the Creator had the right idea. David Dunn-Rankin is president and publisher of the Sun. Email him at religion CHARLOTTE COUNTY — Transit manager Rick Kolar was among those able to exhale Wednesday, after a nine-car fatal pileup on the interstate the day before virtually gridlocked trafc in the area for most of the afternoon. “It affected about 200 riders,” said Kolar, who oversees Charlotte County’s bus services. “The phones were ringing off the hook. But everyone remained calm once they realized we can only get around at the same pace as trafc ow.” There were 22 Dial-A-Ride and Sunshine Ride buses on the roads — taking people home from places like schools and doctors ofces, for example — when the massive wreck happened just before 1:30 p.m. on the I-75 bridge over the Peace River. The wreck closed all northbound lanes for more than ve hours. The 200 bus passengers represented just a fraction of residents whose routines were disrupted. “Diversion onto U.S. 41 (from Edgewater Drive) didn’t help,” Kolar said. “It was quite the calamity.”Sign of the car-pocalypse?By ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERSIGN | 7 A ‘Star-Spangled’ shantySARASOTA COUNTY — The ight instructor and student pilot who walked away from their singleengine plane after it crashed Tuesday afternoon on Thomas Ranch, off U.S. 41 in North Port, were trying to simulate the experience of the engine going out when, according to Arne Kauithof, owner of the Florida Flight Training Center, the engine actually did just that. Flight instructor Mark Mikarts, 48, of Venice, and his student Ayhan Yildirim, 22, originally from Germany, went down during training after the plane’s engine went out while Yildirim was completing ight hours in a Cessna 152 plane to get his private pilot’s license from the ight school, located at 160 Airport Ave. E, Venice, Kauithof said Wednesday. Kauithof said crashes like this happen all the time, and he thinks “the news is making it look more spectacular.” “Everybody makes it a big deal,” he said. “It happens. Flight school owner: Plane’s engine went outBy ALLISON SHIRKSTAFF WRITERFLIGHT | 7 PUNTA GORDA — A judge has decided a local murder case has not been hindered, despite allegations of governmental misconduct and denial of due process because jail staff sent a recording of a privileged conversation between the incarcerated defendant and his lawyer to prosecutors. Twentieth Judicial Circuit Assistant Public Defender Toby Oonk, the chief APD in Charlotte, led a motion asking the court to dismiss a seconddegree 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 in Judge: Murder case not affected by recordingsBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERMURDER | 6 DavidDUNNRANKINPRESIDENT AND PUBLISHERPUBLISHER’S INBOX SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERSections of Edgewater Drive in Port Charlotte are expected to be closed until 2017 due to a road-widening project.

Featured EventPAID ADVERTISEMENTAfter playing several difcult musical selections, the North Port Wind Ensemble recently took straight superiors at a regional concert festival. The event was held at Riverview High School in Sarasota this past weekend. Students in bands from ve counties — Sarasota, Charlotte, DeSoto, Manatee and Hardee, which make up District 11 (there are 21 districts in the state) — took part. NPHS competes annually. “There were 36 bands at the festival. It is our annual Florida Bandmaster’s Association Concert Band Music Performance Assessment,” NPHS band director Owen Bradley said in an email. “It is designed as an assessment measured against a standard (Superior, Excellent, Good, Fair and Poor) reecting the achievement of the band.” He explained there are three stage judges and one sight-reading judge who listen to band performances and rate them. The sight-reading judge listens to the band in another room and the band has to play two selections they have never seen before. “The only possible combinations to result in a Superior rating are two Superiors and an Excellent with an Excellent or Superior in sight-reading,” Bradley said. “We earned Superiors from all the judges including the sight-reading judge and were one of only two bands (the Riverview Wind Ensemble was the other) to receive the highest rating. “We have done this several times in the past, but this year NPHS played very difcult music which made it very difcult to achieve such high marks,” he continued. “I am very proud of our students.” There are 53 students in the NPHS wind ensemble. They played “Americans We,” “Resting in the Peace of His Hands” and “Rhapsodic Episode.” Bradley said with three bands competing, NPHS had the highest number of students participating in the event, more than any other school in the district. The NPHS symphonic band was rated as excellent, and the concert band received a “good” rating. David Wing, band director at Woodland Middle School, touted the ensemble’s success on both his own and the Sun’s Facebook pages. “Many of these students are my former kids at Woodland and I am just so proud of them,” Wing said. “They made our community proud this weekend.” Eighteen high schools total competed at the event, held Feb 26-28. According to the Florida School Music Association, results from area schools are: The Charlotte High School freshman band was ranked as good, its concert band received a fair, and the CHS symphonic band was ranked as excellent. DeSoto County High School’s wind ensemble was ranked as good. Lemon Bay High school’s concert and symphonic winds bands both received an excellent. Port Charlotte High School’s wind ensemble received an excellent rating. Venice High School’s symphonic and concert bands were both rated as excellent.

The Sun /Thursday, March 5, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT — Toledo Blade Elementary School off East Price Boulevard was briey on lockdown Wednesday afternoon after a man pulled a gun on a parent in front of the school while the dad was waiting for after-school pickup, according to city of North Port spokesman Josh Taylor. Gerald Paugh, 74, of the 1000 block of Geranium Ave., was arrested Wednesday and charged with aggravated assault with a rearm for allegedly threatening a parent when he tried to park in the swale of Paugh’s front yard, located across from Toledo Blade, to pick up his child. Taylor said there were three victims involved in the incident, one who was an independent witness. No one was hurt. Sarasota County School District spokesman Scott Ferguson said the lockdown occurred around 3:10 p.m. Wednesday, and delayed dismissal by ve to seven minutes. The precautionary lockdown was a “code red” that requires little to no movement on campus and no movement inside classrooms, as well as locking all the doors and turning off all the lights.Report: CPA steals almost $200K from clientOSPREY — A certied public accountant was arrested Wednesday after a Sarasota County Sheriff’s investigation revealed he stole almost $200,000 from a 92-yearold client, a report shows. Brian Strand, 53, of the 600 block of Oak Bay Drive, Osprey, was charged with exploitation of the elderly Wednesday after Sabal Palm Bank representatives in Sarasota showed documents to investigators alleging that Strand had been misappropriating funds from the victim’s trust, an SCSO report states. After the victim was deemed incapacitated by a doctor in March 2010, Strand was named the successor of her trust. According to the report, bank reps provided bank statements to investigators showing numerous ATM transactions at Seminole Tribe casinos in Tampa and Immokalee, Fla. Strand withdrew $33,802 from the area casinos between June 2010 and August 2014, according to account records. Reps said the victim also held accounts at SunTrust Bank that Strand took over after the victim was deemed incapacitated, the report states. Authorities said account records showed Strand withdrew $28,789 from one account at SunTrust and $105,100 from another. The report shows most transactions took place in the form of counter-withdrawals — checks drawn on the account and automated clearing house transactions. Employees at Sabal Palm Bank noticed suspicious activity on the victim’s account in July 2014, and Strand admitted to authorities Dec. 1, after months of investigation, that he stole the money, and acknowledged he has a gambling problem. Authorities said Strand stole a total of $195,592.72 from the victim. He is being held at the Sarasota County Jail on $20,000 bond. Sweepstakes prize scam making the roundsNORTH PORT — A popular sweepstakes scam has begun to appear in the mailboxes of North Port residents, according to a city homeowner. The scam disguises itself as a mail-in claim for the recipient of the letter’s “$200,000 sweepstakes prize” from the “Incentive Awards Centre.” According to the letter, all a person needs to do to claim the money is sign and mail in an attached form on the letter, along with a $32 “required administration fee” by a March 23 deadline. The letter, which is signed and timestamped by an “A. Mills,” “J. Lamb” and “L. Travis,” states the recipient of the letter must mail in the payment and signed papers by the deadline in order for the alleged bureau to “expedite” the claim to a cash-value award. “As Director of the Incentive Awards Centre, I am delighted to be contacting you regarding this matter of GUARANTEED win-opportunity for cash and awards now available for release to you in the total amount of: $200,000.00,” the letter states. Residents are encour aged by the North Port Police Department to report any letters that seem suspicious, ask for money and/or claim the letter’s recipient has won money, to the NPPD, located at 4980 City Hall Blvd., off Sumter Boulevard.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C The Sun /Thursday, March 5, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS ENGLEWOOD — When Englewood reghters checked smoke alarms in man ufactured home parks recently, only six of 170 alarms were in working order. “And this is just manufactured homes,” Englewood Fire Prevention Coordinator Richard Chapman said. “Mainly what we’re nding right now, the average smoke alarm we’ve come across was manufactured in 1976 to the mid-1980s,” Chapman said. “The average residential smoke alarm only has a 10-year life span.” Englewood reghters have been conducting home safety inspections for mobile and manufactured home subdivisions within the re district. With clocks springing forward for daylight saving time Sunday, the reghters are encouraging residents to replace the batteries in their smoke alarms. Chapman also asks residents to check if their smoke alarms need to be replaced. Many residents might be surprised that their smoke alarms aren’t operable. The Englewood reghters do not carry 9-volt or other batteries typically used in smoke alarms with them, but they will change the batteries in a smoke alarm if asked. However, some smoke alarms are wired directly into the home’s electrical systems, and those homeowners may need to call an electrician to replace them if necessary. Oftentimes, too, Chapman said, the older designs of smoke alarms look like door bell alarms, not smoke detectors, and the homeowners do not recognize them as smoke alarms. Englewood reghters have been assisting senior residents with the replacement of the batteries or the installation of new smoke alarms. Thanks to a Federal Emergency Management Program grant administered by the state, the re district has provided new smoke alarms to lower income residents and seniors. The re district has some new alarms left, but the grant program funding has run out. Chapman doesn’t expect the grants to be funded any sooner than April. New smoke alarms — which Chapman estimates can cost $45 retail — are equipped with sealed, non-replaceable longlife batteries. According to a state statute passed last year, new or remodeled single-family and two-family residences are required to install smoke alarms with non-removable, non-replaceable batteries. Also, landlords are required to ensure their rental units are equipped with working smoke alarms. While the re district is concentrating its attention on manufactured homes, other residents can call Chapman at 941-474-3311 and schedule a home safety inspection. Charlotte County Fire/EMS also has a smoke detector inspection program. Residents served by Charlotte County can schedule appointments by calling the re department’s headquarters at 941-833-5600, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday. Charlotte reghters will check smoke alarms, replace batteries of working smoke alarms and assist residents with the installation of new smoke alarms that are not wired directly to home electrical systems.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comCheck your smoke alarmBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER A Punta Gorda man was sentenced to 27 months in federal prison for ling nearly $2 million in false tax refunds between 2005 and 2009. Armand J. Croteau, 47, pleaded guilty in July of ling false claims with the Internal Revenue Service and for corruptly obstructing or impending the administration of the federal tax laws. According to court documents: Croteau led numerous false claims for tax years 2005 through 2009, seeking refunds totaling $1.92 million. He presented fraudulent forms 1040 and 1040X to the IRS, reporting excess withholding that was fabricated by him. He also made false reports on forms 1099-OID and on the tax returns. After being notied by the IRS that his income tax returns were frivolous, Croteau continued to le fraudulent income tax returns, and in order to obstruct or impede the administration of the internal revenue laws, he led false liens against IRS personnel, recorded false documents with the Charlotte County Clerk of Courts, and submitted fraudulent instruments to the Department of the Treasury in an attempt to discharge his tax liabilities. Department of Justice spokeswoman Amy Filjones said Croteau “stated during the sentencing hearing that he is involved in a paddleboarding business.” Sun reporter Adam Kreger contributed to this report.Punta Gorda man gets prison time for ripping off IRSNEWS-PRESS CROTEAUStrawberry festival funBoca Grande United Methodist Church is sponsoring a strawberry festival 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Crowingshield House and Boca Grande Community Center grounds, 131 W. 1st St. Live and silent auctions, food, handmade crafts, bake sale and more.

The balancing act prescribed in the HCP allows for the endangered Florida scrub jay to be protected through mitigation of their habitats, while at the same time allowing property owners to develop their land without excessive regulation and cost. This week, Stevens, a 13-year county employee, resigned from his position as natural resources division manager. Stevens could not be reached for comment. Heather Bacus, the county’s human resources director, said Stevens’ announcement was unexpected. “In his resignation letter he just said it was beneficial to his longterm goals and objectives,” Bacus said. Stevens was hired in March 2002. Despite a brief turn as interim community services director in 2012, Stevens was the face of the natural resources division, working to maintain a sometimes fragile accommodation between man and wildlife, including sea turtles, iguanas and the only bird species unique to the state, the Florida scrub jay. Besides his groundbreaking work on the scrub jay conservation plan, Stevens also was in the news recently as the immediate supervisor of a county employee charged with abusing caged wild hogs. The employee was captured on film with a motion-sensitive camera using a spear and crossbow on trapped animals. After a six-week investigation, the employee was cleared of any blame. County Administrator Ray Sandrock said Stevens’ sudden departure on Monday was not linked to the controversy. “It’s not tied to anything else,” he said.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comCharlotte County official resignsBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITER STEVENS CHARLOTTE COUNTY — School Board members decided this week to keep two controversial history books that had been challenged by a group of local parents and activists. More than 100 people attended a meeting Tuesday in the Charlotte Technical Center auditorium to address the controversy. The textbooks were “World History Connections to Today,” a general 10th-grade history book, and “The Earth and Its Peoples, A Global History,” a 10th-grade Advanced Placement book. Opponents said these books contain inaccuracies and are biased in favor of Islam. About 30 people spoke out against the textbooks before the School Board voted to adopt them. “Some people have labeled us book burners, right-wing extremists, and Islamaphobes,” said David Morris. “I’m a part of the tea party, but I’m here as a citizen of Charlotte County.” But board members decided to approve a recommendation from a district subcommittee — composed of district ofcials, teachers, community members and a parent — to keep them in classrooms. “If you look only at the chapters specically devoted to Islam or Christianity, it does appear that Islam has more pages devoted to it than does Christianity,” said Barbara Rendell, vice chairwoman of the School Board. “However, if you actually go through both books, 1,000 pages each, as I have done, you will see that far more pages are devoted to Christianity.” Charlotte County Superintendent Doug Whittaker said the district would accept the books for the rest of the year because they adhere to state testing standards, and he didn’t see any biases or inaccuracies. The district can reconsider the textbooks during the next adoption textbook period early next year. School districts have to give parents an opportunity to object to textbooks under Senate Bill 864, which was passed last year. Following objections from some parents, a district committee in January examined seven citations in both books that had drawn criticism, such as: “Muslims profess faith in the same god as that worshiped by Jews and Christians.” Opponents said this was not true. They also argued the committee was stacked against them with more education ofcials on the committee than community members. “This is not just about the book,” L.A. Daniels, a Port Charlotte resident, added. “This is about all these people and parents who made the decision that they don’t want the product.” But Bryan Bouton, president of the Charlotte Florida Education Association, said: “Educators are the ones that should make the decision about what children should be taught in our classroom. This is not about the constituency. This is about the education of our children.”Email: sbrokaw@sun-herald.comCharlotte schools uphold history textsBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITERthe Charlotte County Jail — had been recorded in November and sent by jail staff to prosecutors in January. After hearing two days of testimony and case law late last month at the Charlotte County Justice Center, 20th Circuit George Richards issued a written ruling this week denying Johnson’s motions to disqualify and dismiss. In his 19-page ruling, Richards noted that testimony showed: Privileged conver sations were recorded — perhaps as many as 1,900 — due to an issue with the video-visitation system provided by an outside vendor. Charlotte County Sheriff’s ofcials weren’t aware of privileged conversations being recorded. The video recording in question was sent by jail staff to prosecutors by mistake. The prosecutor who received the video le did not listen to the recording and notied her supervisor about it. It wasn’t even proven in court that the video recording was of Oonk and Johnson. The prosecutor who briey viewed it said she only saw what looked like an attorney’s ofce, and the le was labeled with Oonk’s name; she never actually saw Oonk. “Although a privileged communication was intercepted and momentarily viewed by a member of the State’s prosecution team, the Defendant has failed to make a ‘showing of preju dice in terms of injury to the defendant or benet to the State,’” Richards wrote. Oonk could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Shannon Doolity, the ofce head for the SAO in Charlotte County, said the prosecution side won’t be commenting since the cases against Johnson remain open. Court records show Johnson’s murder trial is scheduled to begin March 23 before 20th Circuit Judge Donald Mason. Mason, who was Charlotte’s ofce head for the SAO from 2008-2012, recused himself from hearing the defendant’s motions to disqualify and dismiss.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comMURDERFROM PAGE 1 Rummage sale at NPCUCCAn indoor early bird preview rummage sale will be held at North Port Community United Church of Christ in Decker Hall, 3450 S.

The Sun /Thursday, March 5, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 7 FROM PAGE ONE ENGLEWOOD — Despite some local residents’ bests attempts to halt development of an 11-acre parcel near the Pine Lake subdivision, Sarasota County commissioners approved it this week. In an 11th attempt, commissioners passed The Gateway Square and Villas rezoning plan 5-0, with some minor changes. The development includes 16 paired villas with 32 units and two ofce buildings, totaling 16,000 square feet. Commissioners in December ordered the property owner, Richard Tasca of Englewood Ventures Partners, and his team to meet with neighbors living near the project to address concerns including density, ooding, wetlands mitigation and cut-through trafc. Tasca reduced the number of proposed villas along the southern property line — which borders Pine Lake — from nine to seven. This left more open space between each of the buildings. The villas also were laid out to pair with the homes on the adjoining property. They were restricted to one story. There will be landscaping maintained by the development on both sides of the property. A 6-foot privacy wall would be built along the border before any houses are constructed. Tasca made other concessions, including reducing the overall density; eliminating a cut-through for trafc near the Pine Lake subdivision; removing proposed two-story villas; having only one two-story ofce building, for which he reduced the density; and adding a U-turn to State Road 776, if possible. Drainage and wetlands mitigation will be addressed through county regulations. Commissioners were told the development met the criteria of the S.R. 776 Corridor Plan required for land-use development in that area. While some residents wanted Tasca or the state to add a trafc signal at the intersection of S.R. 776 and Olde Englewood Road, Commissioner Charles Hines said it likely wouldn’t happen. “We cannot get a light there even if we say pretty please (to the state, after a study showed it wasn’t warranted),” Hines told a crowd of nearly 40 residents — some who spoke in objection to the rezoning of the triangle-shaped property. Longtime resident Lynda Geno still wasn’t pleased with the changes to the proposal from December. “What a smack in the face for us residents,” she said. “They proposed a meandering walking trail. Well, we already have a perfectly good sidewalk ... I wish the property could be donated for educational purposes. We just can’t handle any more trafc in this area.” Other residents call the land too fragile for all of the development. Some said the developer specializes in hard-to-sell properties and proposes unrealistic designs. One resident said it was unfair to new, unsuspecting homeowners whose houses would be built on the edge of the wetland. County Commissioner Paul Caragiulo said he wasn’t comfortable with the plan, but couldn’t nd a real reason not to approve it. Fellow Commissioner Alan Maio said he understood that some residents still wouldn’t be happy. “People have a right to sell their property,” he said. “There are stipulations that are attached to the property, not the company who its owned by. ... The fact is they complied with every thing we asked and gave more.” The county code allows 5.2 units per acre, and the proposal called for 2.9 units. The county requires 30 percent open space, where the project has 40 percent; and there were nine buildings proposed, and it was reduced to seven. The overall square footage of the project was reduced by 26,000 square feet, according to county planners. There was concern about drainage going into a nearby marina. Commissioners asked that staff makes sure it’s reviewed during site development. County Commissioner Christine Robinson said she had voted against different versions of the proposal several times, but this time she said there is a need for more villa-style housing for older couples and the workforce, “especially in Englewood.” She said improvements have been made which would positively impact the neighborhood, and the density issues have been cleared up, unlike with past proposals.Email: eallen@sun-herald.comSubdevelopment approved for Olde Englewood RoadBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHCOMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR VENICE — A whistleblower in the city of Venice has come forward, claiming he was asked to cheat by his super visor on a Federal Emergency Management Agency test used by Utilities Department staff to earn credit toward their required Florida Department of Environmental Protection license. Administrative Services Director Alan Bullock said the complaint was received Feb. 26, and is under investigation. According to the complaint, it isn’t the rst time employees were given the answers to certain FEMA independent study tests on emergency preparedness, used for recertication. Some answers were given prior to the test; other times, the answers were provided verbally during the test or at the beginning of the test. The complainant said he was confused and knew it wasn’t right to learn the answers ahead of time, so he purposely failed the test, getting an estimated half wrong. The test, which he said was given on Friday Feb. 13, is a relatively new test, given for the rst time in October 2014. “I don’t know how the school can’t see that (cheating took place), or that it only took a total of 15-20 minutes per test all (two tests) coming in around the same time with 100 percent passing scores?” wrote the complainant. He claimed the answers were given verbally while the test was being conducted last month. The complainant, a eld operations worker in the Utilities Department, said his motive for ling the complaint was not just that it’s wrong, but that it was inappropriate behavior being pushed on new trainees, and interferes with proper promotions. “It’s doing nothing but hurting everybody within the department,” he told the Sun this week. “Especially the people that really try and do it on their own. The slackers are getting ahead of them. “I feel that I have been cheated out of many positions in the past by people who have cheated to be equal to my level of certication, or who surpassed me at the time,” he said. “No one likes being cheated out of a position, especially when you know that you know more than they do, but they have the certications or licenses they obtained by cheating.” The complainant spent around a third of the letter to the city on suggestions about how to control “the unethical activity.” “There really needs to be some kind of prevention,” he wrote. A few months ago in North Port, ve supervisors in the city’s Public Works Department were red for lying about helping employees cheat on FEMA certication tests. More than 60 North Port Public Works employees were required to complete FEMA classroom training and tests led by Rich Berman, the city’s Emergency Management coordinator, after approximately a dozen Public Works employees came forward in September saying they had cheated on the required FEMA tests. FEMA requires the Public Works employees to complete online training and tests, so that employees know what to do if they are the rst responders during a natural disaster. It’s not clear at this time how many Venice employees may have taken similar tests.Cheating alleged on Venice FEMA testsBy GREG GILESSTAFF WRITERA section of Edgewater closed this week for two years due to a widening project, forcing motorists to use U.S. 41. Some locals worry Tuesday’s accident exemplies the issue of closing a road as heavily traveled as Edgewater. Port Charlotte resident Dennis Peck weighed in on the Sun Facebook page: “Just hard to believe they couldn’t see this coming. Also, no planning for such an event as (Tuesday) when trafc was back all the way south to Burnt Store Road.” Another Port Charlotte resident on Facebook, Terry Hoffman, worries about spring training at Charlotte Sports Park causing more jams: “Just think about the trafc delays when the Rays start practice and 776 is slowed down with pedestrians crossing.” Wayne and Jean Sweeney live on Edgewater near the intersection with Harbor Boulevard, where the clo sure begins to the east. “It might be nice when it’s done,” Wayne said of the construction. “But right now, 41 is three times busier than normal. It doesn’t matter what time of day it is.” In his Facebook post, Peck said he saw an ambulance northbound on U.S. 41 struggling to get through snarled trafc earlier this week. He said the emergency vehicle was “not able to move forward on the road because cars could not get out of the way.” Charlotte County Fire/ EMS spokeswoman Dee Hawkins-Garland said it is important for drivers in bumper-to-bumper trafc to remember to keep an eye out for emergency vehicles, like Tuesday on I-75. “We try to stay on concrete,” she said. “Those retrucks are holding 1,000 gallons of water; to be on uneven ground is very danger ous. And ambulances are very heavy, too. So, we do the best we can to move through trafc (rather than go off-road). But still, we have people who don’t see us. When it’s gridlocked, that’s difcult for us.” Hawkins-Garland said motorists should remember to check their rear view mirrors for ashing lights, since sirens aren’t always heard. And, emergency vehicles in a hurry to get somewhere use the inside lanes on purpose so trafc is able move to the side of the road rather than into a median or left-turn lane — drivers should pull to the right. Moreover, seeing an emergency vehicle coming from behind doesn’t mean you should slam on the brakes — slow down, pull over and then stop. Hawkins-Garland said Fire/EMS was part of the planning process for the Edgewater closing, so emergency personnel know ahead of time what alternate routes to use for addresses in that area. As for other drivers getting around the area during the construction, Hawkins-Garland said they should just know to allow extra travel time. “And if you’re frustrated, just put on some calm music,” she said. “Eventually, you will get to your destination.”Email: akreger@sun-herald.comSIGNFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERSections of Edgewater Drive in Port Charlotte are expected to be closed for about two years due to a road-widening project. INSIDE THE PILEUPThe Florida Highway Patrol on Wednesday released more informa tion about Tuesday afternoon’s nine-car pileup on the Interstate-75 bridge over the Peace River in Charlotte County. Authorities say Robert Long, 48, of Fort Myers, was driving a dump truck northbound at 1:23 p.m. when he failed to observe traffic stopped on the outside lane of the bridge. Long slammed into a Chevrolet Equinox driven by Charles Isenhower, 77, of Lebanon, Ind., who was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers in critical condition. He remained there Wednesday. His passenger, Patricia Isenhower, 72, was rushed to Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte and where she died. Long was cited for careless driving. Others involved in the wreck and taken to the hospital — all with minor injuries — included: Arnoud Aristide, 51, of North Port (Ford Ranger driver) Kyle Bohnstedt, 20, of Port Charlotte (Mercury Grand Marquis driver) Ally Hermance, 16, of Punta Gorda (Grand Marquis passenger) Kenneth Pianin, unlisted age, of Boca Raton (Suzuki SX4 driver) Susan Pianin, unlisted age, of Boca Raton (SX4 passenger) It has happened to me as well. It’s just bad luck.” Kauithof said Mikarts has worked at the ight school “on and off” for 20 years, and Yildirim has been taking classes for three weeks. According to a North Port Police Department news release, ofcers responded to the crash around 1:30 p.m., after a ranch hand on the Thomas Ranch property reported the downed plane. When authorities arrived at the scene, there were no victims around. An incident report states a witness said he saw the plane “in distress” around 11:15 a.m. when he was at Buchan Airport, 1390 Olde Englewood Road, Englewood. The witness said the plane was headed toward North Port, and he did not see the actual crash. The report states Myakka Pines Golf Club staff helped Mikarts and Yildirim after two men drove up to the nearby golf club in Englewood and said they were there to pick up an instructor and a student whose plane had just crashed. Staff said both Mikarts and Yildirim told staff they no longer needed help after they were picked up by ight school employees. The report states detectives went to Venice Regional Bayfront Health because ight school staffers said that is where Mikarts and Yildirim were being treated, but when detectives arrived, Mikarts already had left. He was asked by detectives to return to the hospital for questioning. According to Mikarts’ statement in the heavily redacted incident report, Mikarts called the ight school to notify staff after the crash, and an employee sent out two mechanics to pick them up. Golf club staff led the two out to the scene, who then drove Mikarts and Yildirim back to the ight school before going to the hospital, because Yildirim had a bloody nose and an abrasion on his face. Mikarts reported no injuries. Kauithof said Yildirim already had been in the air twice Wednesday, and Mikarts still was instructing students. According to the incident report, Mikarts told detectives that he has “sev eral” training certicates, has logged more than 6,000 ight hours, and has not been involved in any previous crashes. He said he is not sure why Mikarts didn’t report the crash, but Kauithof said he’s not sure if he even would have reported the crash. “It was standard protocol,” Kauithof said of the way Mikarts reacted. Mikarts and Yildirim could not be reached for comment. Kauithof indicated that it is common for landings to be made in grass elds, and when there is tall grass, it is harder to see the ground surface. Photos from the scene of the crash Tuesday show tall, overgrown grass at the ranch where the plane landed. North Port spokesman Josh Taylor said the Federal Aviation Administration was on-site at approximately 9 a.m. Wednesday morning conducting the investigation into the crash. Taylor said the FAA cleared the scene before 10 a.m. The FAA investigation into the crash is still ongoing, according to the NPPD release. Taylor also said the mechanic, 30-year-old Mark Alderton, who drove out to pick up the plane, was arrested by ofcers near the crash scene because he was driving with a suspended license.Email: ashirk@sun-herald.comFLIGHTFROM PAGE 1 R OA D. `' ,t , 1, sBRIDGE oRIC^ ROADCLOSED CLOSED 11 QLOSE: CLOSED

The Sun /Thursday, March 5, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 9 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. SARASOTA COUNTY — Some Sarasota County commissioners would like to see more South County representation on the county’s Planning Commission. At Wednesday’s County Commission meeting, board members appointed Mark Hawkins of Sarasota to ll the seat left vacant by the resignation last month of board member Mike Moran, who quit to run for the Sarasota County Commission District 1 seat. The post will become available when commission Chairwoman Carolyn Mason reaches her term limit in 2016. Hawkins was chosen from a eld of eight candidates to take Moran’s place on the board. With his new appointment, Hawkins will have to resign from the county’s Charter Review Board. County Commissioner Christine Robinson initially nominated Andrew Stultz of Venice Wednesday — the board eventually agreed upon Hawkins — because, she said, the Planning Commission needs more members from the southern part of the county. “It’s very top-heavy right now,” Robinson said. She said geography alone doesn’t qualify a candidate for the planning board, but is something that needs to be taken into consideration in the interest of fairness. “The conversation is brewing down south right now,” she said. Commissioner Paul Caragiulo agreed, saying a candidate’s location in the county should be considered in any new appointments. After the meeting, Robinson said the nine-person Planning Commission should have at least one more South County representative on the board. “We have three, I would like to see four,” she said. A “local planning agency” like the county Planning Commission is mandated by state law to serve an advisory function to county commissioners on development issues like zoning and comprehensive plan amendments. Proposed changes are rst brought before the Planning Commission, and board members decide to recommend that county commissioners approve or deny the proposal. Regardless of the planning board’s recommendations, county commissioners have the nal say. Last year, the planning board suggested commissioners approve a zoning change for a 40-acre parcel along Morningside Drive at the corner of Pine Street in Englewood. That would have paved the way for Tromble Bay, a proposed development of 79 single-family homes. The proposed development was previously zoned for only one residential unit per every ve acres. Several proper ty owners on Morningside keep horses and other livestock. Some Stillwater residents — whose homes border the southern portion of the property and are separated by a wetland and other native habitat — also objected to the project. The Planning Commission reached an impasse in November and decided to neither deny nor recommend the zoning change. Tromble Bay developer, GBU Ventures LLC, revamped the plans to include a larger buffer between Morningside and the planned community. The planning board nally reached a consensus in December and suggested approving the zoning change. But the County Commission went against the Planning Commission’s recommendation for that development, generally agreeing the planned community was incompatible with the property’s existing use. However, on Tuesday, commissioners took the planning board’s advice and signed off a zoning change for a proposed 16,000-square-foot, mixed-use development at the corner of Old Englewood Road and State Road 776 in Englewood. Email: cburton@sun-herald.comCommissioners: South Sarasota County underrepresentedBy CLINTON BURTONSARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR SARASOTA COUNTY — Several local schools are getting brand-new computers this summer. Following the Sarasota County School Board members’ approval Tuesday night of a nearly $8.75 million contract with Hewlett-Packard, students at Englewood Elementary, Cranberry and Atwater elementaries, North Port High School, Taylor Ranch Elementary School in South Venice and Venice Area Middle School are all getting new school computers. “There are 11 schools with approximately 9,000 students who will see new computers this summer (when school begins in August),” said Joe Binswanger, director of Information Technology at Sarasota County Schools. “Every summer for the past seven years we have been replacing computers at nine to 11 of our 41 schools in the district.” Binswanger said the district used to replace school computers every ve years. However, all user groups (teachers, support staff and students) gave input to the IT department saying that was too long a time. The district switched to a four-year lease program with HewlettPackard for computers. The package includes warranties and IT support for all the equipment. Schools receive standard desktops for students and more specialized ones for teachers. At the high school level, some computers are designed for career and technical education programs. “We don’t just look at today’s needs for computers, but the needs of the computer users in four years,” Binswanger said. “We also make sure we have additional machines students need for testing. We have found this program is very successful.” The district doesn’t throw away its aging computers. Some are donated to the Texcellence Home Computer Program and others are sent to auction to earn the district money to reinvest in more computers. Nonworking computers are recycled. Since 2007, needy students have beneted from the Texcellence program, according to information on the program’s website. It was the brainchild of a teacher who recognized students without a home computer couldn’t complete homework, research projects or check their school websites. The teacher collaborated with the Education Foundation of Sarasota County and the School Board to give refurbished computers to students who qualied. To date, the Texcellence program has given more than 20,700 computers to students countywide, district ofcials say. Each year, about 3,844 are donated to students to keep. Criteria includes being on free or reduced lunch, having at-home Internet access and an email address, and completion of a basic digital literacy training program. Students and families who do not have at-home Internet access are encouraged to join the Comcast Internet Essentials Program before applying. Internet Essentials provides lowcost broadband Internet service at home for $10 per month.

What did you do with all that money that we have been paying for 30 years to the MSBU to take care of our roads? Dan Gawenda Deep CreekEditor: The president would be wise to refrain from providing military equipment to Ukraine. Currently, Russia is providing covert aid to Russian-speaking Eastern Ukraine, which is hostile to the western-supported government in Kiev. As soon as we start to provide overt aid to Kiev, Russia will certainly do the same and provide far more aid than they currently do. The conict will escalate with more innocents being killed and greater instability. The optimal solution is a diplomatic resolution in which Eastern Ukraine has substantial autonomy from Kiev. The Europeans should handle this conict. American involvement should be limited to humanitarian aid. We do not need another cold war. The Islamic State has attracted adherents within the Muslim community using a false nar rative that the West is waging a war on Islam. The president has wisely refused to call them “Islamic” because he under stands that to do so would only strengthen their arguments and lead to greater recruitment. He is being careful in his language for good reason. I do not understand why this is so difcult to understand. Why is this so controversial? Isn’t it more important to win this battle than to score political points? The president is the commander in chief and he needs to act in a way that will protect Americans and not to respond to some silly political argument from hostile pundits. Frank Vorlicek Jr. Rotonda WestEditor: The American people are being bombarded with infor mation, some true, some false and most of it somewhere in between. For example, the Keystone Pipeline, which has passed both houses of Congress but was vetoed by the president, ostensibly because he wants to retain his authority. Some would argue Editor: To all parties who believe that a water heater will run more economically if you turn the water temperature down to 120 degrees. Water heaters that are set to 120 degrees will not kill salmonella bacteria and anybody who tells you that that’s what your water temperature should be is feeding you a line of boloney. If you have a dishwasher in your home, you should have your water temperature set to at least 150 degrees. It does not cost very much to heat water to 150 degrees, and it costs only pennies to keep it at 150 degrees. The only way that you will know what your water heater costs to operate is to install a watt hour meter on your water heater. This is also the only way you can know what anything that you have, that is bundled in your electric bill, will cost you. Don’t be fooled by the power companies and by all the people who will make you believe that they have the answers. Just a note: Automatic egg washers are set at 140 degrees to be sure that the salmonella bacteria has been killed on the outside of the egg shells.Richard Eaton ArcadiaEditor: Ah yes, the well-oiled and nely tuned machine we’ve come to know as county government has again shown how efciently it’s being run. A recent Sun article detailed much-needed improvements to the storm drainage system in the parking lot at the Sports Park. So instead of doing the work when the park is virtually dormant between mid-September and February, let’s schedule this during the wettest time of the year and dodge between a 70-game Stone Crabs schedule and the ensuing rains. And the beat goes on! You were duped into another sales tax extension believing it would save your tax dollars. The Edgewater road project is nally underway. It was a touted project when the 2008 Editor: Here I go again. I can’t help myself, but I have to respond to the recent letters to the editor concerning Jesus Christ, the hot button social issues of today and the Bible in general. First and foremost, our world has achieved many great accomplishments through modern science and technology. Many people like to use science to argue against the Bible and disprove the stories in the Bible. But here is the problem, the Bible is a “faith” book and is not a “science” book. I do not fully understand it or can’t fully explain it and might not even like some of the things I read, but as a believing Christian, I proclaim it as the truth. I respect your right not to believe and do not judge or condemn you and I will not argue or debate you. I only say to you, not to believe is not the right choice or wise choice for me because I believe God’s way is sure and God’s way is certain. Hebrews 11:1 tells us that faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we cannot see. There is nothing scientic about it. If that makes me simpleminded in the eyes of this world, so be it. I hope you respect my position as I do yours. P.S. I am no better than you and fall very short of living with Christ-like character, but I keep trying.Ken DeVries Punta GordaEditor: All the effort made to make Punta Gorda a bicy cle community omits any consideration or thought for pedestrians/walkers on the Harborwalk. In a recent article in the Charlotte Sun , Nancy Johnson stated, “Did you know that in Florida it is legal for bicyclists to ride on the sidewalk? If they do they must conduct themselves like pedestrians.” Many of the pedestrians on the Harborwalk are senior citizens (or small children) who get almost shoved off the sidewalk when bicyclists beep or yell “on your left” or “on your right” and then come hurtling through the walkway. Many of the bicyclists are renting bikes and are not skilled bicyclists. Some bicyclists almost run into the pedestrians. Pedestrians are forced to step off the sidewalk to give up the sidewalk for the bicy clists. The bicyclists rarely go into the grass — they force walkers off the walkway. How is this considered “conducting themselves like pedestrians?” Are there any rules or signs for any courtesy or consideration by bikers for walkers on the Harborwalk? It appears there will be no consideration for pedestrians until someone is seriously injured.Ann Pease Punta GordaLibraries inch back in serviceOne of the more noticeable impacts of the Great Recession on local government services came in libraries, with cuts in the number of librarians and hours of operation. In reality, it did not seem dramatic. Stafng in the Sarasota County library system dropped 23 percent between 2006 and 2013. Libraries opened at 10 a.m., not 9 a.m. The two libraries that had opened Sundays — the Jacaranda Library in Venice and the Selby Library in Sarasota — closed that day. Since 2013, stafng is back up a bit. A beautiful new Gulf Gate Library has opened. Plans are in the works for a second North Port Public Library off Toledo Blade Boulevard. Services are also returning in Charlotte County. Stafng was cut 25 percent, but is back up to 90 percent of pre-recession levels, said interim Division Manager Lanette Hart. Daily hours were trimmed at the Mid-County Regional Library. Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and Englewood librar ies closed on Mondays. Port Charlotte Library closed on Saturdays. Port Charlotte opened Saturdays again this year, which is a good start. The Englewood Charlotte Library has been expanded. Plans are in the works for a new library in Punta Gorda and upgrades are in the pipeline at the Mid-County Library. More hours? More librarians? More materials? Fair to ask. It may well be that taxpayers and patrons are satised with the level of library services. If not, they need to make their feelings known.Detert takes on elder guardiansState Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice, who has established her credentials as a champion of the rights of foster children in Florida, has turned her sights to a related issue this session: elder guardianship. A bill introduced by Detert would tighten the state’s guardianship system by creating the Ofce of Public and Professional Guardians, which would provide a level of oversight that doesn’t exist today. Many involved in elder guardianship believe the current lax system is open to abuse. As Detert recently told the Sun’s Steven J. Smith, “State and local constituents have complained that guardians are cutting them off from their relatives, taking over the relatives’ nances and running through their assets.” The new ofce would have the authority to review and investigate allegations of impropriety. It would put more bite into existing laws and offer more protections to a large and vulnerable population. We’ve come to expect that level of concern and compassion from Detert. Two years ago, she was able to shepherd a bill through the Legislature that brought better balance and common sense to the foster care system. Again, a vulnerable and often-overlooked segment of the community found the right person to pick up their cause. Detert’s bill is one of three introduced this session aimed at reducing loopholes in the system. One or another, it’s time to address the situation. extension passed as costing “X”dollars back then. Fast forward seven years and I’ll bet dollars to donuts that “X” has more than doubled. And who do you suppose is going to pay the overage? And the beat goes on! My heart goes out to the taxpayers engulfed in the Spring Lake sewer asco and residents of Deep Creek and Harborview over proposed road and sidewalk projects. But they say if you keep doing what you’re doing you’ll keep getting what you’ve got. We had two qualied candidates who ran in the last election but instead we re-elect a physician and a photo-opping, hand-shaking career politician. They along with the rest of their clan have shown their distaste for the wishes of the taxpayers. And the beat goes on! Jack Simmons Port Charlotte PLEASE GIVE BLOOD HELP SAVE LIVESthat he is protecting his OPEC buddies. The pipeline would help to create a North American coalition and move us toward being the major oil producers who control pricing. The pipeline would join hundreds of others currently crossing our country. Do we really want our best friends and neighbor to partner with China against us? If the controversy is about moving away from fossil fuels and into “sustainable” energy, consider this: only about 4 percent of global energy is sustainable. Also consider the billions that have been spent to get to that 4 percent mark. Not to mention the negative impacts of solar and wind in the form of wildlife deaths, visual pollution and nancial boondoggles. Even the most ardent of environmentalists must realize that we have to survive until their Utopian ideas become reality.Victoria Vaughn Englewood


The Sun /Thursday, March 5, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINTThe legislative session is ofcially underway and the opening day was lled with the customary pomp and circumstance. Legislators’ desks were lled with owers, dignitaries were present, prayers were offered, patriotic songs were sung and the Senate president and speaker of the House presented their visions to their respective chambers. The governor gets the chance to address all 160 legislators in a joint session. This is a great opportunity for him to set the tone for the 60-day session; to set out lofty and ambitious goals; to urge the legislature to adopt his agenda; and to make his case to those who control both the policy and the purse strings. So how did Gov. Rick Scott do? This was Scott’s fth State of the State address and I think he’s getting a little better at public speaking. He started with an endearing and self-deprecating line about his “world-renowned oratorical skills.” This not only humanized him but it also lowered expectations. Scott has often mentioned that Texans know how to brag about their state and we should do that more in Florida. He used his address to the legislature and the TV audience to do just that. He rattled off all the positive economic indicators like reducing unemployment from 11.1 to 5.6 percent and adding over 700,000 private sector jobs. He bragged about a 43-year low in the crime rate, reducing debt, becoming the third largest state and attracting 97 million tourists last year. There is a lot of good happening in Florida and everyone loves to hear positive news. He stuck to two related and positive themes — Florida “exceptionalism” and making dreams come true. He highlighted several individuals and companies and focused on those started long ago that have become synonymous with Florida like Disney World, the Columbia Restaurant and Publix Supermarkets. For delivery, setting a positive tone and a cohesive theme, Scott fared well. He then ventured into the actual substance of the address outlining ve familiar goals. As he has done in his previous four addresses, he again expressed his desire to continue cutting taxes with his oftused phrase “Floridians can spend their money better than government can.” His tax-cutting wishes for this session include the tax on cellphones and TVs, the tax on manufacturing equipment and the sales tax on college textbooks. The Legislature loves to cut taxes and will most likely do so this year with increasing revenues making that possible. We’ll have to wait and see whether they will cut them in the areas Gov. Scott suggested or somewhere else. Scott’s second goal is a college affordability bill that will prevent increasing tuition — an admirable endeavor. While we all would like college to be affordable, we have to keep up with changing technology and recruit and maintain quality professors. College costs are paid for by a combination of tuition, scholarships and state investment. If we want to keep tuition low, we need to invest more or else we risk lowering quality. Scott’s third goal was to invest in workforce development. He listed $56 million of spending proposals, some of which appear to be ongoing. His fourth goal is to increase K-12 education funding. On the campaign trail, Scott boasted about historically high funding for education. Fact checkers deter mined the lump sum was the highest but since we had more students to teach; the per pupil funding was not. Scott vowed to increase per pupil funding to $50 more than the highest level funded under Gov. Charlie Crist. This is a large ticket item but with home values on the rise, an increase in property tax revenue will generate more for education without putting the entire scal burden on the state. Lastly, Scott expressed a commitment to environmental and agricultural programs and rattled off some promising funding numbers. Unfortunately, his actual proposal does not fully fund Florida Forever nor does it adequately address the voters’ wishes when they passed Amendment 1 with 75 percent of the vote. The Legislature will consider nearly 1,500 bills in the 60-day session dealing with a plethora of issues. The governor’s limited agenda was anything but bold. While I applaud his efforts to cut taxes, keep college tuition low, train workers, increase education funding and restore environmental funding — the devil is in the details and those were lacking in his address. Also lacking was any mention of expanding Medicaid or dealing with the billion-dollar shortfall in his budget due to the lack of federal dollars for indigent care. He also failed to address the suspicious deaths and corruption reported in our prisons, the crumbling prison buildings and the need for more funding and staff. Other hotbed issues that he ignored were school testing, solar power, gambling, medical marijuana, minimum wage, child deaths under DCF supervision, and criminal justice reform. What’s remarkable about the governor’s speech is what he didn’t say. Paula Dockery is a syndicated columnist who served in the Florida Legislature for 16 years as a Republican from Lakeland. Readers may reach her at PBDockery@ Scott leaves out important issues in State of the State Paula Dockery And you thought the Obamacare Web rollout had problems. Computer malfunctions, brand new curriculum standards and unparalleled stress have characterized the debut of the new Florida Standards Assessments. But could Florida’s testing debacle be alleviated by a stroke of the governor’s pen? On Monday, 36 of Florida’s 67 counties — more than half — experienced technical difculties with the new Florida Standards Assessment writing test, which was administered to eighth-, ninthand 10th-graders across the state. Log-on attempts failed, computers crashed, and unexplained error messages appeared on screens, according to Tampa Bay Times writer Jeffrey Solochek. And it’s only going to get worse in April, when fththrough 10-graders take FSA language arts and math exams online. “I can’t believe this happened on the rst day,” said Becki Couch, a current Duval County School Board member and the body’s former chairwoman. “We weren’t even testing all students.” “We can all say we’re ready but you really don’t know until you have everyone testing at the same time,” Couch said. Now we know. The stakes couldn’t be higher. Tenth-graders will have to pass the writing test in order to graduate. Couch, who is also former chair of the Florida School Boards Association’s legislative committee, reiterates the concerns of more than a dozen district superintendents, the teachers’ union and the FSBA. Florida Department of Education Commissioner Pam Stewart is downplaying the difculties, emphasizing that the writing-test period will go on for two weeks and that there are makeup days built into the schedule. At least one parent-advocate is not buying the state’s excuses. Colleen Wood, founder of the grassroots public education organization 50th No More, insists that the FDOE had to know how many students would be testing on Monday. She told First Coast News that with such high stakes surrounding the FSA, the FDOE should be “held accountable.” In the wake of Monday’s enormous computer-test debacle, Gov. Rick Scott should step in where the Legislature and the Department of Education have, as of yet, failed to do so. Last week, the governor surprised public school advocates by using an executive order to suspend an 11th-grade language arts test that most educators agree was redundant. Gov. Scott should now use his executive powers to relieve the stress and heartache of most of our 3 million public school students. Nerves are on edge not only because of the computer foul-ups, but also because the new test, the FSA, comprises measures of newly implemented curriculum standards. Many of the superintendents who publicly expressed reticence about administering the FSA wrote that they didn’t think teachers had time to fully teach the new standards to their students. Florida schools used FCAT 2.0 from 2011 through 2014, and prior to that, FCAT. Monday was the FSA’s debut. The governor should declare 2015 a “eld testing” year for both the FSA itself, and the computer infrastructure that’s supposed to support it. He should use his executive powers to ensure that student scores are used only as benchmarks, and that students are spared from any punitive consequences of this yet unproven instrument. We need at least a year to make sure this test is valid and reliable, to get the bugs out of the online system, and ascertain grade-level prociency for each subtest given. If Florida is serious about improving public education — and not just making a former governor look good for the White House in 2016 — we need to keep collecting data until we have two comparable sets of gain scores before we start basing life-alter ing decisions on the FSA. Sen. Bill Montford’s got the right idea. He pro poses a three-year “hold harmless” policy in SB 616. But that could take weeks to hash out in the Senate. Meanwhile, our students are suffering. The governor has the power to mitigate the damage now being wreaked by overzealous politicians. Declare that the 2015 FSA is a eld test only, and stop subjecting students to the extreme stress now being inicted by adults who clearly don’t know what they’re doing.

The Department of Justice released an 86-page report Wednesday summarizing its reasons for not charging former ofcer Darren Wilson, who is white, with a federal civil-rights violation for the Aug. 9 shooting that sparked protests in the St. Louis area and across the nation. “Based on this investigation, the Department has concluded that Darren Wilson’s actions do not constitute prosecutable violations,” the federal report said. That mirrors the determination of a St. Louis County grand jury, which decided in November not to bring state criminal charges against Wilson. Here’s a look at some of the key Ferguson cop clearedBy HOLBROOK MOHR and DAVID A. LIEBASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERSEvidence backs police officer’s account in shooting AP FILE PHOTOFerguson police ocer Darren Wilson during his medical examination after he fatally shot Michael Brown,in Ferguson, Mo. FERGUSON | 4 BOSTON — The question, for all practical purposes, is no longer whether Dzhokhar Tsarnaev took part in the Boston Marathon bombing. It’s whether he deserves to die for it. In a blunt opening statement at the nation’s biggest terrorism trial in nearly 20 years, Tsarnaev’s own lawyer atly told a jury that the 21-year-old former college student committed the crime. “It WAS him,” said defense attorney Judy Clarke, one of the nation’s foremost death-penalty specialists. But in a strategy aimed at saving Tsarnaev from a death sentence, she argued that he had fallen under the malevolent inuence of his nowdead older brother, Tamerlan. “The evidence will not establish and we will not argue that Tamerlan put a gun to Dzhokhar’s head or that he forced him to join in the plan,” Clarke said, “but you will hear evidence about the kind of inuence that this older brother had.” Three people were killed and more than 260 hurt when two shrapnel-packed pressure-cooker bombs exploded near the nish line on April 15, 2013. Tsarnaev, then 19, was accused of carrying out the attacks with 26-year-old Tamerlan, who was killed in a shootout and getaway attempt days later. Authorities contend the brothers — ethnic Chechens who arrived from Russia more than a decade ago — were driven by anger over U.S. wars in Muslim lands. Federal prosecutors used their opening statements, along with heartbreaking testimony and grisly video, to sketch a picture of tornoff limbs, ghastly screams, pools of blood, and the smell of sulfur and burned hair in the streets of Boston. They painted Tsarnaev as a cold-blooded killer.

TSARNAEVBOMBING | 4 NEW YORK — A fragment of jawbone found in Ethiopia is the oldest known fossil from an evolutionary tree branch that eventually led to modern humans, scientist reported Wednesday. The fossil comes from very close to the time that our branch split away from more ape-like ancestors best known for the fossil skeleton Lucy. So it gives a rare glimpse of what very early members of our branch looked like. At about 2.8 million years old, the partial jawbone pushes back the fossil record by at least 400,000 years for our branch, which scientists call Homo. It was found two years ago at a site not far from where Lucy was unearthed.

The immune system often can spot and destroy abnormal cells before they grow into cancer. But when tumors manage to take root, they put up defenses to block new immune attacks. Wednesday’s study takes aim at one of those shields. With the extra oxygen, “you remove the brake pedal” that cancer can put on tumor-ghting immune cells, said Michail Sitkovsky, director of the New England Inammation and Tissue Protection Institute at Northeastern University, who led the work. Here’s what happens: Tumors can grow so rapidly that they outpace their blood supply, creating a low-oxygen environment. The lack of oxy gen in turn spurs cancer cells to produce a molecule called adenosine, which essentially puts nearby tumor ghters called T cells and natural killer cells to sleep, explained phar macologist Edwin Jackson of the University of Pittsburgh, who co-authored the study. Lots of research is under way to develop drugs that could block the adenosine effect. But Sitkovsky’s team wondered if just getting more oxygen to an oxygen-starved tumor could strip away that defense. So they put mice with different kinds of lung tumors inside chambers that mimic what’s called supplemental oxygen therapy.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Thursday, March 5, 2015 NATIONAL/STATE NEWS TALLAHASSEE (AP) — Florida’s highest court on Wednesday jumped into a long-running dispute that could alter the fate of the state’s 27 members of Congress. The Florida Supreme Court held an hourlong hearing examining whether or not the Republicancontrolled Legislature outed voter-approved standards intended to stop legislators from drawing districts to help incumbents or members of a political party. A circuit court judge ruled last summer there was enough evidence to show that GOP consultants helped make a “mockery” of the process and ruled that two congressional districts were invalid. Legislators in August then drew new maps that altered seven districts and shifted nearly 400,000 voters in central and north Florida.There’s no timetable for when justices could rule, but a decision throwing out the current map could reverberate into the 2016 elections. The groups challenging the current maps want changes made to districts from the Panhandle all the way to Miami-Dade county.Most of the justices were silent as they heard lawyers for both sides clash over whether the Legislature intentionally violated the “Fair Districts” amendment passed by voters in 2010. A coalition of groups, including the League of Women Voters, maintains the districts violate the law. Justice Barbara Pariente had several pointed exchanges, including questioning why legislators deleted emails dealing with redistricting back in 2012. She also asked about private meetings held between top legislative leaders to discuss the nal maps that were eventually approved. Those facts were part of the “circumstantial” evidence cited by Judge Terry Lewis when he initially threw out the maps. Justice Charles Canady, however, questioned whether or not there was proof that the entire map approved by the Legislature had been drawn for “partisan” reasons. Sen. Bill Galvano, a Bradenton Republican who led the redistricting efforts last August, remained condent that the state Supreme Court would uphold the current districts. He argued that the new map passed last summer xed any of the “so-called nefarious activities” that had been faulted by Lewis. “I d on’t know how the Supreme Court can’t uphold it,” Galvano said shortly after the hearing. David King, an attorney representing the groups su ing the Legislature, asserted during the hearing that there were still problems with the map approved last year, especially with the district now held by U.S. Rep. Corinne Brown. Brown’s district stretches from Jacksonville to central Florida. King’s groups have suggested it should be redrawn to stretch westward to Tallahassee. King argued that GOP legislators want to keep Brown’s district as it is to avoid placing minority voters in other districts — and potentially having those districts change parties. “They are not just satised with landslide mar gins, they want avalanche margins,” King said of state legislators.Florida Supreme Court takes up challenge to new districts WASHINGTON (AP) — A House committee investigating the Benghazi, Libya, attacks issued subpoenas Wednesday for the emails of Hillary Rodham Clinton, who used a private account exclusively for ofcial business when she was secretary of state — and also used a computer email server now traced back to her family’s New York home. The subpoenas from the Republican-led Select Committee on Benghazi demanded additional material from Clinton and others related to Libya, spokesman Jamal D. Ware said. The panel also sent instructions to technology companies instructing them to preserve any relevant documents in their possession. The development on Capitol Hill came the same day AP reported the existence of a personal email server traced back to the Chappaqua, N.Y., home of Clinton. The unusual practice of a Cabinet-level ofcial running her own email server would have given Clinton — who is expected to run for president in the 2016 campaign — signicant control over limiting access to her message archives.The practice also would complicate the State Department’s legal responsibilities in nding and turning over ofcial emails in response to any investigations, lawsuits or public records requests. The department would be in the position of accepting Clinton’s assurances she was surrendering everything required that was in her control.Congress said it learned last summer about Clinton’s use of a private email account to conduct ofcial State Department business during its investigation of the Benghazi attacks on a U.S. mission in which four Americans died.“It doesn’t matter if the server was in Foggy Bottom, Chappaqua, or Bora Bora,” House Speaker John Boehner said. “The Benghazi Select Committee needs to see all of these emails, because the American people deserve all of the facts.” The chairman of the Benghazi committee, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., told reporters: “I want the documents. Sooner rather than later.”House committee subpoenas Clinton emails in probe AP FILE PHOTOThen-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton testies on Capitol Hill in Washington, on the deadly September attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in 2013. WASHINGTON — With an eye toward a possible run for the White House, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio signed onto an extensive plan Wednesday to cut taxes for investors, parents and businesses in an effort to spur economic growth and create jobs. The plan would likely add billions to the national debt, though no ofcial assessment has been done. To address the nation’s nances, Rubio said, Congress should pair a “pro-growth” tax overhaul with signicant changes to Social Security and Medicare, a stand that could draw criticism from advocates for older Americans. The Florida senator joined with Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah to unveil the package Wednesday. It builds on a plan the two senators rst announced last year. The package would simplify tax ling for most families, reducing the number of income tax brackets from seven to two. It would eliminate investment taxes on capital gains and dividends, providing big tax breaks for wealthy families. It would boost the $1,000-per-child tax credit to $2,500 per child, and it would eliminate income restrictions on receiving it. The deduction for mortgage interest would be limited and all other itemized deductions would be scrapped, except for the one for charitable contributions. The standard deduction and personal exemptions would be replaced by a tax credit of $2,000 for individuals and $4,000 for joint lers. Business tax rates for large corporations and small businesses would be reduced, though companies could no longer deduct interest on new debt, a big issue for many rms.Rubio-Lee tax plan rewards investors, parents, businesses | HEADLINES FROM AROUND THE NATIONJustices sharply divided over tax subsidiesWASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is sharply divided over the tax subsidies that make insurance affordable for millions of Americans under President Barack Obama’s health overhaul. The justices on Wednesday aggressively questioned the lawyers on both sides of the latest politically charged ght over the Affordable Care Act. Chief Justice John Roberts said almost nothing in nearly 90 minutes of back-and-forth, and Justice Anthony Kennedy’s questions did not suggest how he will come out. Opponents of the law say that only residents of states that set up their own insurance markets can get federal subsidies to help pay their premiums.Nations wouldn’t take man later shot by LAPDLOS ANGELES (AP) — U.S. ofcials say authorities were forced to release a foreigner before he was shot by police on Los Angeles’ Skid Row because no country would take him. The ofcials said Wednesday that France issued travel documents for a man identied as Charley Saturmin Robinet but rescinded them in 2013 after determining it was an assumed name. The man later told authorities he was from Cameroon and gave a different name, but ofcials from the African country there didn’t respond to attempts by U.S. immigration ofcials to reach them.

(AP) — The mother of an infant found dead near the Sacramento River was charged Wednesday with involuntary manslaughter and abusing or endanger ing the health of a child. Samantha Green, 23, of Woodland pleaded not guilty to the charges during a court appearance. Green was arrested Saturday in the death of 20-day-old Justice Rees, whose body was found Feb. 25 about 30 miles west of Sacramento. The mother and child were reported missing Feb. 23 after failing to show up for a family event three days earlier. She was found disoriented the next day, and the baby’s body was discovered after an all-night search.Two killed in Calif. shootings SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Two people were killed and ve others were wounded in shootings at a Southern California nightclub and a nearby gas station early Wednesday, authorities said. Gunre erupted as up to 200 people led out of Stinger’s nightclub on the south side of San Bernardino shortly before 2 a.m., police Lt. Rich Lawhead said. One person died at the club and ve people were wounded, two critically, Lawhead said. Another person died in a second shooting minutes later at a gas station a quarter-mile away. Investigators said up to 40 rounds were red, and they are searching for multiple suspects.Deliberations at Arias trial to resume todayPHOENIX (AP) — Jurors at the Jodi Arias sentencing retrial went home Wednesday without delivering a verdict. They will continue to deliberate today on whether she should be sentenced to life in prison or death for killing her lover. Arias was convicted of murder in 2013 after a trial that became a sensation with its revelations about her relationship with victim Travis Alexander and the brutal way he was killed. That jury deadlocked on her punishment. If the current jury can’t decide on a sentence, the death penalty would be removed as an option and the judge would decide if Arias serves life in prison or gets a chance for release after 25 years. | HEADLINES FROM AROUND THE STATEFlorida bathroom bill upsets transgendersTALLAHASSEE (AP) — Transgender women would have to use men’s public bathrooms and transgender men would have to use women’s rooms unless they have a license or passport that proves they’ve completed their transition to their new sex under a bill that passed its rst committee. The House Civil Justice Subcommittee approved the bill Wednesday after listening to more than an hour of emotional testimony from transgender residents who oppose it and supporters who said people shouldn’t be using bathrooms designated for the opposite sex. But opponents said the bill was simply a way to discriminate against transgender people.Divided Senate panel OKs bill to limit some testingTALLAHASSEE (AP) — A measure to put some limits on standardized testing is moving in the Florida Senate after a strong debate. The Senate Education PreK-12 committee approved the bill Wednesday along party lines with Republicans voting yes. If the bill (SB 616) becomes law, it would cap how many hours students could spend on testing. The measure also eliminates some tests, including a test required of 11th-grade students. Gov. Rick Scott suspended the test for this year. Some senators said the bill did not go far enough. Sen. Dwight Bullard, a Miami Democrat, proposed several changes, but they were voted down by GOP senators.Disagreement surfaces after Bailey firingTALLAHASSEE (AP) — Disagreement is surfacing between Florida Gov. Rick Scott and other members of the Florida Cabinet over how to proceed in the aftermath of Scott’s controversial ring of Florida Department of Law Enforcement Chief Gerald Bailey. Aides to Chief Financial Ofcer Jeff Atwater, Attorney General Pam Bondi and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam said in a Cabinet aides meeting Wednesday that the governor’s ofce is moving too fast in developing standards for evaluating the performance of state agencies. The move to set performance standards for the agencies and the ofcials that run them stems from Bailey’s departure just after Scott won his second term in ofce. Gun found in student’s bag at schoolFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) — Authorities say a South Florida junior high student was caught carrying a gun and other items at school last week. Fort Lauderdale police report that the 13-year-old boy was taken into custody at Sunrise Middle School on Friday and involuntarily committed for mental health evaluation. Ofcials confronted the boy after another student was seen giving him a knife in the school cafeteria. A search of his bag revealed a .357 revolver, a knife, ammunition, a mask and reworks.

(AP) — Police in one New Hampshire town are handing out the kind of tickets you want to get — for free pizza and french fries. WMUR-TV reports inspired by how well residents in Farmington have handled a tough winter, police have been giving out gift cards for people using crosswalks and driving properly. The tickets, donated by a local business, will be handed out through the end of March. Police have no plans to give up issuing tickets for actual violations.ODD NEWSPolice issuing tickets for pizza, french fries FROM PAGE ONE ndings in the federal report:Robbery suspectWilson rst encountered Brown and his friend, Dorian Johnson, walking in the middle of a Ferguson street, just minutes after a report of a robbery at a nearby convenience store. According to Wilson’s testimony, after he told the two to move out of the street, he realized they matched the description of the robbery suspects. The Justice Department report says that police dispatch recordings and Wilson’s radio transmissions show that he was aware of the theft and had a description of the suspects as he encountered Brown, who was carrying stolen cigarillos.Vehicle struggleAfter the initial encounter, Wilson backed up his police vehicle and confronted Brown. A struggle ensued. The Justice Department report says that Wilson and other witnesses stated that Brown reached into the police SUV through an open window “and punched and grabbed Wilson.” The report says that is “corroborated by bruising on Wilson’s jaw and scratches on his neck, the presence of Brown’s DNA on Wilson’s collar, shirt and pants, and Wilson’s DNA on Brown’s palm.”Grabbing for gunWilson has testied that Brown reached for his gun during the struggle in his vehicle. The report says Wilson red two shots from the vehicle. Brown was shot in his hand. The federal report says autopsy results and the trajectory of the bullets back Wilson’s account. It says skin from Brown’s palm was found on the outside of the police SUV door, and Brown’s DNA was also found on the inside of the driver’s door. That would “corroborate Wilson’s account that during the struggle, Brown used his right hand to grab and attempt to control Wilson’s gun,” the report says.Hands upAfter the initial shots, Brown ran away from Wilson’s vehicle. The Justice Department report says Brown was not shot in the back, because there were no entrance wounds there. At some point, Brown stopped and turned around. Some witnesses have said Brown had his hands up in a sign of surrender — an assertion that became popular among protesters. The federal report notes that there are vary ing accounts of what Brown was doing with his hands. But the report concludes: “There are no credible witness accounts that state that Brown was clearly attempting to surrender when Wilson shot him.”Charging backWilson has testified that after Brown stopped running, he turned around and began charging back toward the officer. Wilson said he feared for his life as he then fatally shot Brown. The federal report says that all the credible witness accounts “establish that Brown was moving toward Wilson when Wilson shot him.” The report says the physical evidence — namely, blood stains on the road — also confirms that Brown moved toward Wilson after he turned to face them.FERGUSONFROM PAGE 1hotbed for human ancestor fossils, and scientists from Arizona State University have worked for years at the site in northeast Ethiopia, trying to nd fossils from the dimly understood period when the Homo genus, or group, arose. Our species, called Homo sapiens, is the only surviving member of this group. The jaw fragment, which includes ve teeth, was dis covered in pieces one morning by Chalachew Seyoum, an Ethiopian graduate student at Arizona State. He said he spotted a tooth poking out of the ground while looking for fossils. The discovery is described in a paper released Wednesday by the journal Science. Arizona State’s William Kimbel, an author of the paper, said it’s not clear whether the fossil came from a known early species of Homo or whether it reveals a new one. Field work is continuing to look for more fossils at the site, said another author, Brian Villmoare of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Analysis indicates the jaw fossil came from one of the earliest populations of Homo, and its age helps narrow the range of possibilities for when the rst Homo species appeared, Kimbel said. The fossil dates to as little as 200,000 years after the last known fossil from Lucy’s species. The fossil is from the left lower jaw of an adult. It combines ancestral features, like a primitive chin shape, with some traits found in later Homo fossils, like teeth that are slimmer than the bulbous molars of Lucy’s ilk. Despite that mix, experts not involved in the paper said the researchers make a convincing case that the fossil belongs in the Homo category. And they present good evidence that it came from a creature that was either at the origin of Homo or “within shouting distance,” said Bernard Wood of George Washington University. The nd also bolsters the argument that Homo arose from Lucy’s species rather than a related one, said Susan Anton of New York University. The new paper’s analysis is rst-rate, but the fossil could reveal only a limited amount of information about the creature, said Eric Delson of Lehman College in New York. “There’s no head, there’s no tools, and no limb bones. So we don’t know if it was walking any differently from Australopithecus afarensis,” which was Lucy’s species, he said. It’s the rst time that anything other than isolated teeth have turned up as a possible trace of Homo from before 2.3 million years ago, he said. “This lls a gap, but it hasn’t yet given us a complete skele ton. It’s not Lucy,” Delson said. “This is always the problem. We always want more.” Also on Wednesday, another research team reported in a paper released by the journal Nature that the lower part of the face of Homo habilis, the earliest known member of the Homo branch, was surprisingly primitive. That came from reconstruction of a broken jaw that was found 50 years ago. The nding means the evolutionary step from the Ethiopian jaw to the jaw of Homo habilis is “not so large,” said an author of the Nature study, Fred Spoor of University College London and the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany.FOSSILFROM PAGE 1 21 percent oxygen, but hospitals can give patients concentrations of 40 percent to 60 percent oxygen through masks to treat various disorders. The extra oxygen changed the tumor’s environment so that immune cells could get inside and do their jobs, the researchers reported Wednesday in the jour nal Science Translational Medicine. Tumors shrank more in the high-oxygen group, especially when the researchers combined the oxygen with injections of extra tumor-ghting T cells, what’s called immunotherapy. Extra oxygen had no effect in mice genetically engineered to lack those immune cells. Immunotherapy is a hot eld in cancer research, as scientists try to gure out how to spur the body’s own ability to ght tumors. The study is exciting, said immunologist Susanna Greer of the American Cancer Society, who wasn’t involved with the research and cautioned that it must be tested in people. “If this works, there is the potential that what they’re doing could very easily synergize with other cancer immunotherapies that we know work,” she said. “The beauty is that oxygen per se is so well-tolerated,” added Dr. Holger Eltzschig, an anesthesiologist at the University of Colorado in Denver who studies low-oxygen effects and also wasn’t involved in Wednesday’s study. He said the data was compelling enough to start testing the approach by adding supplemental oxygen to certain cancer therapies.MOUSEFROM PAGE 1 “He also believed that by winning that victory, he had taken a step toward reaching paradise.” Among the rst witnesses for the prosecution were two women who lost legs in the attack, including Rebekah Gregory, who walked slowly to the stand on an articial limb. “I remember being thrown back, hoisted into the air,” said Gregory, who had gone to watch the marathon with her 5-year-old son, Noah. “My rst instinct as a mother was, where in the world was my baby, where was my son?” She said she looked down at her leg: “My bones were literally laying next to me on the sidewalk and blood was everywhere.” She saw other peoples’ body parts all around her, and “at that point, I thought that was the day I would die.” “I could hear Noah, I don’t know how, but I could hear my little boy. He was saying, ‘Mommy, Mommy, Mommy,’ over and over again,” she recalled. “I said a prayer. I said, ‘God, if this is it, take me, but let me know that Noah is OK.’” She said someone nally picked up her son and put him down beside her. Breaking down in tears, she testied that as she looked for the boy, she saw a woman dead on the pavement. A shaggy-haired, goateed Tsarnaev slouched in his seat and showed little reaction as the case unfolded. Apart from a question or two, the defense did not crossexamine the rst few prosecution witnesses. About two dozen victims who came to watch the case took up one entire side of the courtroom, listening somberly to details of the carnage. Several hung their heads and appeared to ght back tears. Prosecutors also showed the jury a gruesome video of people lying in pools of blood. The footage was punctuated by screams, moans and the crying of a boy. The ground was strewn with ball bearings and chunks of metal, and smoke wafted over the victims. Members of the jury watched somberly. Several grimaced, especially at the sight of a gaping hole in a woman’s leg.In his opening statement, the prosecutor also described how 8-year-old Martin Richard stood on a metal barrier with other children so he could get a good view of the runners.“The bomb tore large chunks of esh out of Martin Richard,” and he bled to death on the sidewalk as his mother looked on helplessly, Weinreb told the jury, with the boy’s parents in the courtroom. Because of a wealth of evidence against Tsarnaev — including a video of him leaving a backpack at the scene, and incriminating grafti scrawled on the boat where he was captured — legal experts have said there is little chance of escaping conviction during the guilt-or-innocence phase of the trial. Instead, they said, Tsarnaev’s lawyers will concentrate on saving his life by arguing that Tamerlan was the driving force in the plot. Clarke called the bombings “senseless, horribly misguided acts.” But she asked the jurors to “hold your hearts and minds open” until the penalty phase, when the panel will decide whether Tsarnaev should be executed or get life in prison.BOMBINGFROM PAGE 1 PHILADELPHIA — A storm stretching from northern Texas to southern New England is set to bring what could be winter’s last signicant snowfall for the East Coast. West Virginia and Kentucky were expected to get hit the hardest with 8 to 10 inches, while Baltimore and Washington, D.C., were looking at 6 to 8 inches of snow, said National Weather Service forecaster Bruce Terry. Philadelphia could get 6 inches and New York could see about 4 inches of snow. The temperature plummeted as the storm pushed east: In Arkansas, it dropped nearly 20 degrees in an hour from 71 at 11 a.m. to 52 at noon. Boston is a little more than 2 inches shy of its all-time snowfall record, and meteorologists were predicting 1 to 2 inches to fall. On Wednesday, schools from Texas to West Virginia were closing early and Penn State University canceled classes due to weather for the rst time in eight years. About 1,200 ights were canceled, including 600 in and out of Dallas-Fort Worth. Residents of Kentucky and West Virginia dealt with ooded roadways and mudslides. In Arkansas, high school basketball playoff games were postponed until today.Light at the end of the tunnel?Mike Halpert, deputy director of the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center, said the storm “might be winter’s last hurrah.” After the storm and maybe a couple of cold days into the weekend, the next couple weeks are forecast to be considerably warmer than normal for a large chunk of the country, Halpert said. But Halpert’s ofce, which does longer term forecasts, does predict colder than normal for snow-struck New England and only normal temperatures — which would be warmer than recent weeks — for the rest of the Northeast. Likewise, AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski says the storm could be winter’s “caboose.”Storm could be winter’s last big oneTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOPeople walk over a snow-cleared path of the Boston Common on Wednesday in Boston.

Kerry left the Iran talks in the Swiss resort town of Montreux and ew to Riyadh, where he will see the new Saudi monarch, King Salman, and meet separately with the foreign ministers of the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The Sunni-ruled Gulf states, like Israel, are unnerved by Shiite Iran’s suspected pursuit of nuclear weapons and its increasing assertiveness throughout the region. U.S. ofcials say Kerry will reassure them that a deal with Tehran will not allow Iran to get the bomb and won’t mean American complacency on broader security matters. Iran is actively supporting forces ghting in Syria and Iraq and is linked to Shiite rebels who recently toppled the U.S. and Arab-backed government in Yemen. KERRYFormer chief of Bolivia drug police under investigationLA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — The retired police general who reorganized Bolivia’s counter-narcotics force after President Evo Morales expelled U.S. drug agents is under investigation for illicit enrichment and drug trafcking ties. A judge was to decide Wednesday whether Gen. Oscar Nina should be jailed. Nina’s wife and two children were ordered jailed late Tuesday for suspected laundering of illicit earnings. Interior Minister Hugo Moldiz cited “serious suspicions” that Nina and his family had links to drug trafcking. Prosecutor Gomer Padilla said investigators had discovered assets unsubstantiated by income but did not disclose their nature. Bolivia is the world’s No. 3 cocaine-producing country and a major transit and processing conduit for Peruvian cocaine. Morales claims Bolivia’s counter-narcotics efforts have improved since he expelled the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in 2008.Turkey seeks EU help to stop migrant ‘ghost ships’BRUSSELS (AP) — Turkey is appealing to the European Union to help it combat the phenomenon of ghost ships used by smugglers to send hundreds of migrants at a time toward European shores. Turkey’s ambassador in Brussels, Selim Yenel, told EU lawmakers Wednesday that his country needs “proper information, coordination on these issues.” He called on the EU to provide satellite imagery and other intelligence. Two cargo ships were picked up in the Mediterranean in January with more than 1,000 migrants aboard, many of them eeing Syria. The EU has been seeking an explanation from Turkey as to how the ships could have left the southeast port of Mersin, near the Syrian border, and sailed for Italy without Turkish authorities noticing. DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) — A rebel-held city scarred by months of conict in eastern Ukraine suffered more tragedy Wednesday when a methane gas explosion in a coal mine killed at least 24 workers and left nine missing. As rescue efforts stretched past sundown, separatist authorities were accused by Ukraine’s government of failing to do enough to save the lives of the miners. The blast occurred before dawn more than 1,000 meters (3,200 feet) underground at the Zasyadko mine in the city of Donetsk in the coal-rich Donbass region. Nearly a year of bitter ghting by pro-Moscow rebels and Ukrainian troops in the east has killed more than 6,000 people. Rebel ofcials said the accident was caused by the ever-present danger of methane gas, rather than artillery re. There were contradictory accounts of the toll of dead and missing by the rival authorities. The rebel government that controls Donetsk was slow to divulge information, while a senior ofcial in the capital of Kiev was swift to give a death toll of 32, only to retract it several hours later. The blast occurred as 230 workers were in the mine, and nearly 200 of them were quickly evacuated, but uncertainty lingered throughout the day about dozens of others. Rebel ofcials insisted into the afternoon that only one person had died. But a slightly wounded miner who gave his name only as Sergei told The Associated Press that he saw ve bodies being pulled out.Coal mine blast kills at least 24 in war-torn east Ukraine AP PHOTOUkrainian coal miners wait for a bus after returning to the surface of the Zasyadko mine in Donetsk, Ukraine, Wednesday. An explosion ripped through a coal mine before dawn Wednesday in war-torn eastern Ukraine, killing at least 24 miners. MOSCOW (Bloomberg News) — The murder of Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov was the last straw for Dmitry Ostashenko, who decided to give up his life as a logistics manager in Moscow and try to leave Russia with his wife. “We can’t live here any more,” Ostashenko, 31, an opposition activist like his wife, Inna Malashenko, said at the Sunday march to commemorate Nemtsov, carrying a sign that said “I’m Not Afraid.” Malashenko, 24, said, “We’ve tried to inuence things but we see that we can’t.” Russia’s liberal opposition is in despair after the Friday night slaying of Nemtsov in the Kremlin’s shadow. While the murder elicited international con demnation and sparked the largest opposition gathering since the protests of 2011-2012 against President Vladimir Putin’s rule, rank-and-le activists say the Russian leader looks stronger than ever. Putin gained from a peace agreement that helped curb ghting in Ukraine, easing international pressure as well as the threat of new sanctions on the ailing Russian economy. At home, Nemtsov’s assassination sent a chill down the spines of critics both inside and outside the ruling elite, said Gleb Pavlovsky, a former Kremlin political adviser who was sent to Ukraine by Putin to help manage Viktor Yanukovych’s presidential campaign in 2004. “There’s a sense of fear across the board,” Pavlovsky, who advised the Kremlin during Putin’s rst two terms, said by phone. “This will make people more loyal and obedient.”Russian opposition despairs as Putin remains strong LONDON (AP) — New guidelines from the World Health Organization are enough to kill anyone’s sugar high. The U.N. health agency says the world is eating too much sugar and people should slash their intake to just six to 12 teaspoons per day — an amount that could be exceeded with a single can of soda. The guidelines, released Wednesday, nalize draft advice rst released last year and are focused on the added sugars in processed food, as well as those in honey, syrups and fruit juices. The advice does not apply to naturally occurring sugars in fruit, vegetables and milk, since those come with essential nutrients. “We have solid evidence that keeping intake of (added) sugars to less than 10 percent of total energy intake reduces the risk of overweight, obesity and tooth decay,” Francesco Branca, director of WHO’s nutrition department, said in a statement. Experts have long railed about the dangers of sugar and studies suggest that people who eat large amounts of the sweet stuff are at higher risk of dying prematurely from heart problems, diabetes and cancer, among other conditions. To meet the lower threshold set by the new guidelines, Americans, Europeans and others in the West would have to slash their average sugar intake by about two-thirds.UN: World eating too much sugarUS ambassador to SKorea slashed on face and wristSEOUL, South Korea (AP) — U.S. Ambassador Mark Lippert was slashed on the face and wrist by a man wielding a weapon with a 10-inch blade and screaming that the rival Koreas should be unied, South Korean police said. Media images showed a stunned-looking Lippert staring at his blood-covered left hand and holding his right hand over a cut on the right side of his face, his pink tie splattered with blood. The U.S. State Department condemned the attack, which happened at a performing arts center in downtown Seoul as the ambassador was preparing for a lecture, and said Lippert was being treated at a local hospital and his injuries weren’t life threatening. adno=50471075 Joseph H.

ShopSmart, the shopping magazine from the publisher of Consumer Reports, went to fitness experts across the country and asked for their top tips: Keep it simple. “People are intimidated by the intricate choreography they find in aerobic classes, so I tell them to find one of the freestyle classes that are popping up around the nation,” says Dr. Cedric X. Bryant, chief science officer at the American Council on Exercise. “One that I like is called Bokwa, where participants draw letters and numbers with their feet while moving to music in free-form rhythm.” ShopSmart notes that you can find a class near you at Get maximum results in minimum time. “Sprint training is a great time-saver,” says Robert DeCillis, strength and conditioning coach at Training for Warriors Long Island in Bellmore, N.Y. “That’s going as fast and hard as you can for short bursts, followed by recovery intervals of slower movement for 2 or 3 minutes, just enough time to catch your breath. When you do that you not only burn calories while you’re working out, you actually continue to burn afterwards.” Use a body bar in new ways. If you already use a body bar for moves such as biceps curls, overhead presses or squats, try this: Turn the bar vertically, place it about 1 foot to the right of you and loosely hold the top of it with your right hand. Then use it to anchor you as you do squats, plies and other leg exercises. Sit less, stand more. Research reveals that sitting for too long is hazardous to your health. You might even say that sitting is the new smoking. So don’t just focus on fitness during your time at the gym. Get your butt out of a chair and your metabolism increases by about 25 percent. Standing also helps to control blood sugar and blood flow throughout your body. Make your workout a moving meditation. “Whenever you’re walking, really focus on your steps,” says Ingrid Von Burg, a yoga instructor in Los Angeles. “Watch where your foot hits the ground — heel, middle, then ball — and listen for the sound it makes. Focusing on your feet allows you to quiet your mind and truly experience the moment.” Train for special fitness events. “First try a fundraising walk. Then go for a 5K,” says Dave Poland, owner of Better Health Pro in Stoneham, Mass. He says Couch to 5K (free at is a great way to get started if you’ve never run before. “When you’ve done that, try a 10K,” he says. Do crunches with a medicine ball. “Most people actually use their hip flexors to do a crunch, not their abs. Holding a 4-pound medicine ball between your thighs will take your hip flexors out of the movement and force your abs to do all the work,” says Chris Varano, fitness coach at Hilton Head Health in South Carolina. ShopSmart explains how to do a crunch correctly: Lie on your back with your knees bent, and put your hands behind your head, elbows out. Then curl your upper body up enough to look over your belly, just clearing the shoulder blades off the floor. Create a “power shelf.” Kathleen Lisson, a running coach in San Diego, says, “I stock healthful snacks at eye level in my fridge: hummus, cut veggies, low-fat cheese sticks, single servings of nuts and fruits. After a run, instead of justifying junk food, I turn to my power shelf.” Ease into it. “Go slowly,” says Jim White, owner of Jim White Fitness & Nutrition Studios in Virginia Beach, Va. “First take a 10-minute walk in the morning and do some gardening in the afternoon. After you’ve got that down, step it up to 20 minutes of walking. Then go to 30 minutes and walk a little faster. And so on.” Workout tips that work NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks sank Wednesday, pulling indexes further below record highs hit earlier in the week. The drop was modest but broad: nine of the 10 sectors in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index lost ground. Given the market’s recent run, it’s only natural for investors to turn cautious, said Terry Sandven, senior equity strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management. On Monday, the S&P 500 reached an all-time high while the Nasdaq crossed the 5,000 mark for the rst time in nearly 15 years. “We’re in wait-and-see mode,” Sandven said. “Prices are denitely stretched, especially when earnings expectations are being set lower.” The S&P 500 gave up 9.25 points, or 0.4 percent, to 2,098.53. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 106.47 points, or 0.6 percent, to 18,096.90. The Nasdaq composite fell 12.76 points, or 0.3 percent, to 4,967.14. Alcoa’s stock sank 4 percent following news that analysts at Bank of America cut their ratings on the aluminum giant. BofA’s analysts expect prices for aluminum to lose strength as China increases its exports. Alcoa lost 59 cents to $14.59. Abercrombie & Fitch posted quarterly prots that beat analysts’ estimates but its sales fell short. A top executive at the retailer warned that it will likely face trouble from a stronger dollar. Abercrombie’s stock plunged $3.72, or 16 percent, to $20.27. With all but 12 big companies in the S&P 500 having turned in their fourth-quarter results, overall earnings are on track to increase 7.7 percent, according to S&P Capital IQ. That’s much better than some had feared. Forecasts for the rst three months, however, have been slashed. In early December, analysts projected an 8.6 percent increase in corporate earnings for the rst quarter. Today, they expect them to shrink 2.6 percent.US stocks fall, pulling market further below record highs NEW YORK (AP) — Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson expects the price of oil to remain low over the next two years because of ample global supplies and relatively weak economic growth. “People need to kinda settle in for a while,” Tillerson said at the company’s annual investor conference in New York. In a presentation to investors outlining its business plans through 2017, Exxon assumes a price of $55 a barrel for global crude. That’s $5 below where Brent crude, the most important global benchmark, traded on Wednesday. It’s about half of what Brent averaged between 2011 and the middle of last year. The price of oil plunged in the second half of 2014 when it became apparent that production was outpacing global demand. The rise in U.S. production last year of 1.5 million barrels per day was the third largest in the history of the global oil industry, according to a recent report from BP. Meanwhile, weakening economic conditions in China, Japan and Europe slowed the growth in oil demand. BP CEO Bob Dudley made remarks similar to Tillerson’s in a recent call with investors. The CEOs comments reect an increasingly common industry view that new sources of oil around the globe, relatively slow growth in demand, and large amounts of crude in storage will keep a lid on prices for the foreseeable future. “When you have that much storage out there, it takes a long time to work that off,” Dudley said. The U.S. Energy Department reported Wednesday that U.S. oil supplies have grown to 444.4 million barrels, the highest level in at least 80 years.Exxon CEO: Get used to lower oil prices TILLERSON

SPORTSThursday, March 5, 2015 @ S unCoastSports SunCoastSportsNow .com Sports Editor: Mark Lawrence INDEX | Lottery 2 | NBA 2 | Auto racing 2 | Golf 2 | Scoreboard 3 | NHL 3 | College basketball 3 | Quick hits 3 | Snowbird Classic 3 | Baseball 4 PORT CHARLOTTE — Alex Cobb can remember watching James Shields and David Price congratulate each other every time one of them was named the Tampa Bay Rays’ opening day starter, a role one of the pair lled every season since 2008. This year, Cobb is the one getting the congratulations. Manager Kevin Cash announced Cobb will get the ball on opening day against the Baltimore Orioles on April 6, giving the Rays just their fourth different opening day starter in the past 10 seasons. Chris Archer and Drew Smyly will start the second and third games of the season against the Orioles, respectively, and Jake Odorizzi will start the series-open er against the Miami Marlins on April 10. The fth starter won’t be decided until later in the spring. “Joy,” Cobb said of his reaction to the news. “There’s a lot of things on your short list of career highlights that you can say you’ve done. Obviously, being in the World Series and winning the World Series is at the top. Being an Opening Day starter falls somewhat shorter than that, but it’s right up on that list.” Cobb, who will make his spring debut on Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates in Bradenton, gets the nod after going 10-9 with a 2.87 ERA and a career-high 149 strikeouts for the Rays last season.

TAMPA — Alex Rodriguez returned to the New York Yankees after an absence of more than 17 months, lining a single into short left eld in his rst at-bat and going 1 for 2 with a walk in a 3-1 spring-training loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday. Greeted by a 10-second mix of boos and cheers from the crowd of 9,673 as he stepped into the batter’s box for his rst game following a one-year drug suspension, Rodriguez was wearing the Yankees’ white uniform with pinstripes for the team’s exhibition season home opener rather than the usual dark blue jersey used in exhibition games. “Once you hit rock bottom, any time you hear a few cheers these days is a pleasant surprise,” he said. Rodriguez swung at the rst four of 10 pitches he saw in three plate appear ances. Batting second as New York’s designated hitter, he swung past a pair of 91 mph pitches from Philadelphia’s Kevin Slowey in the rst inning. “I felt like I was swinging under water,” he said. “I was like, man, it’s been a A-Rod a hit in spring return By RONALD BLUMASSOCIATED PRESSRodriguez comes back to cheers, boos MLB: New York YankeesA-ROD | 4 Bigness, Mantas topple VerotBy CHARLES BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENTFORT MYERS — The Lemon Bay High School baseball team chose the right time to put every thing together. The Manta Rays got the big two-out knocks, played great defense and got stellar pitching as they held on to defeat Bishop Verot 3-1 Wednesday at Swanson Field in a non-district game. Luke Conklin had a two-out, two-run double in the second inning that proved to be the game winning hit, while Alec Bigness kept the Vikings at bay on the hill for 523 innings. Lemon Bay coach Casey Hanrahan said he was the big reason for the win. “I can’t say enough good things about Alec. He works hard and keeps his composure on the mound,” Hanrahan said. “He was on tonight.” Bigness wasn’t over powering, as he allowed six hits, two walks and a hit batter. But he was able to dodge in and out of trouble by throwing the big pitch when he had to, as evidenced by the Vikings stranding 10 runners. Lemon Bay (4-6) took control in the second as Zach Pellicotti and Matt Molinari singled and were balked over by Verot starter Patrick Banick to put them both in scoring position. After two strikeouts, Conklin blasted one into deep left center for a double to make it 2-0. Thaddeus Ward drove home Anthony Tejada in the bottom of the second to bring Bishop Verot (6-3) to within one, but Bigness put the clamps on after that. “It was big for us to get those runs early so I can PREP BASEBALL: Lemon Bay 3, Bishop Verot 1 MANTAS | 2 UP NEXTLemon Bay: Vs.

A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Manning will return for a fourth season in Denver and 18th in the NFL.ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Hold that gold watch. Peyton Manning is taking one more shot at the silver trophy. Weeks of speculation about the ve-time MVP’s future ended Wednesday with word that he’s returning for an 18th season in the NFL and fourth in Denver. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Manning will take a $4 million pay cut, from $19 million to $15 million, but that he can make it all back through performance incentives. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because there was no ofcial announcement of the deal. Manning, who is still scheduled to make $19 million in 2016 in the nal season of the ve-year contract he signed in 2012, will take his physical and sign his revised contract Thursday. Manning mulled retirement after the Broncos’ playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts. But he determined he still had the health and hunger to keep playing at age 39, when he tries to become the oldest QB to win a Super Bowl. “We’re just excited to have him back,” Pro Bowl running back C.J.

GOLF: Cadlllac ChampionshipDORAL — The year isn’t all that’s new for Adam Scott. He makes his 2015 debut at the Cadillac Championship with a new caddie he hired at the end of last year. He has a new daughter born last month. And what grabbed even more attention was the new putter he plans to use at Doral. Scott had enough time off during the nal months of his wife’s pregnancy that he began tinkering with a conventional putter, which he last used in competition at the Sony Open just over four years ago. He switched to a long putter, and since then has won the Masters and reached No. 1 in the world. A new rule on anchoring that takes effect in 2016 means a change was going to be inevitable. “Thinking a little more objectively about it at the back end of last year, I thought because I do have to make an adjustment by the end of this year, if I’m going to spend some time doing it I should try and start now and maybe nd the best solution,” Scott said. “I’ve putted lots of different ways at home, and probably going to putt with a shorter putter this week. It’s been feeling good. It’s not that big a deal. I did it for a long time that way.” Scott has gone nearly three months since he last competed and was runner-up at the Australian PGA Championship. He is keeping expectations at a minimum at a World Golf Championship that has brought together all the top 50 in the world ranking. It’s the rst time everyone in the top 50 has been together since the 2012 PGA Championship at Kiawah Island.By DOUG FERGUSONASSOCIATED PRESSFormer world No. 1 likely to go back shorter putterScott ready for season of change CADILLAC CHAMPIONSHIPWHEN: Today-Sunday WHERE: Trump National Doral, Blue Monster (7,528 yards, par 72) TV: Golf Channel, NBC to go out there and win that ring. And we’re just trying to go out there and help him win it. ... If he said he’s mentally and physically ready to play, that doesn’t mean it’s at a subpar level. It means it’s at a high level.” Manning, who won a title with the Colts in 2006, met with general manager John Elway a few weeks ago after taking some time to decompress from an arduous season and told him he wasn’t ready to retire. Reminiscent of Brett Favre’s annual irtations with retirement, however, this saga dragged on as the Broncos and Manning’s agent Tom Condon reworked the quarterback’s contract. The $4 million savings won’t drastically change Denver’s free agency plans. It gives Elway about $20 million to work with, but much of that will go to his own restricted free agents. After dealing with a nagging thigh injury that hampered his perfor mance down the stretch, Manning worked out this offseason in New Orleans with physical trainer Mackie Shilstone, renowned for helping athletes extend the twilight of their careers. On Feb. 12, Manning ew to Denver in team owner Pat Bowlen’s jet to meet with Elway, CEO Joe Ellis and new coach Gary Kubiak. He also huddled with offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, who replaced Adam Gase, Manning’s co-pilot in Denver’s offense who followed John Fox to Chicago. Kubiak has designed mainly West Coast offenses throughout his career that often require the quarterback to line up under center and roll out. Mobility has never been Manning’s calling card; he’s been most comfortable making quick throws out of the shotgun in recent years. Yet, Kubiak said it’s “easy to build a playbook” for Manning and noted that Joe Flacco, whom he tutored in Baltimore, rolled out a mere two dozen times last season. Manning is all in. “Aside maybe from Tubby Raymond’s Delaware Blue Hen Wing-T offense, I feel pretty comfortable playing in any offense,” Manning said recently.MANNINGFROM PAGE 1 pitch with the lead. Once I got that, I could go after the hitters and get weak contact,” Bigness said. “I wanted to go deep in the game and not throw many pitches.” The Manta Rays made it 3-1 in the sixth when Jaryd Clary singled, reached third when a pickoff throw went wild, and scored on Ryan Conroy’s sacrifice fly. In the bottom of the sixth Bigness loaded the bases. Conroy came in and forced Trevor Cramer to ground out to first to end the inning, then struck out the side in the seventh to win it. “Ryan is a horse and I’m proud of how he came in and performed,” Hanrahan said. “Conklin came through with a two-out hit. Hopefully this is a sign of the tide changing.” Trey Fields was 2 for 4 with a double. Pellicotti was 2 for 3 and also had a double for Lemon Bay. C.J.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the agreement had not been announced.

PRO FOOTBALLWith Peterson’s status in question, Vikings pay a visit: The Minnesota Vikings have made their in-person pitch to Adrian Peterson, the latest step toward resolving the star running back’s unclear status. General manager Rick Spielman and head coach Mike Zimmer spent about four hours at Peterson’s home north of Houston. KHOU-TV recorded video of Peterson emerging from the gated mansion wearing a white T-shirt and black workout pants to greet the pair with a hug. Spielman and Zimmer left together later, dressed in sport coats and blue jeans, while photographers from several media outlets captured on camera their departure in a gray car. The Minnesota Vikings and the Buffalo Bills agreed on a trade that will send quarterback Matt Cassel to the Bills next week and give the Vikings extra draft picks. — By The Associated Press

Zach Call went 2 for 4 with an RBI, the only player for Mount St. Mary’s (2-4) with multiple hits. Villanova’s Mike Sgaramella pitched 513 innings and gave up three runs. He left the contest with a 14-3 lead that would grow from there. Mountaineers starter Nick DeCarlo allowed six runs in 213 innings.Beermann, Nova rip Mountaineers BASEBALL: Snowb ird ClassicSTAFF REPORT SNOWBIRD CLASSICTODAY’S GAMESNo games todayFRIDAY’S GAMESIllinois State vs. St. Joseph’s, 10:30 a.m., NCRP No. 6 Villanova vs. Indiana, 2 p.m., NCRP No. 6 Northwestern vs. Ball State, 5 p.m., SCRP Dartmouth vs. Indiana, 6 p.m., NCRP No. 3 long time.” He lined a soft single to left on an 89 mph 0-2 offering that was over the plate. That drew cheers from fans at Steinbrenner Field on a sunny after noon with a temperature in the low 80s. “It’s probably the rst spring training game in a long time that he’s been a little anxious,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Rodriguez has had success against Slowey, going 4 for 9 during the regular season with two doubles and a home run. When Rodriguez came up again in the third, he grounded a 96 mph fastball from reliever Paul Clemens to shortstop for an inning-ending forceout. He walked on a full count in the sixth against Ethan Martin, loading the bases with no outs and the Yankees trailing 2-0. He has a little more than a month to show he should be in the lineup when the Yankees open their season at home against Toronto on April 6. “It’s going to take two or three weeks for me to kind of get a gauge where I am,” Rodriguez said. There appeared to be few fans wearing shirts with Rodriguez’s No. 13; there was a scattering of spectators with the No. 2 of Derek Jeter, the Yankees captain who retired at the end of last season. Rodriguez, who turns 40 in July, admitted in 2009 that he used perfor mance-enhancing drugs while with Texas from 2001-03. He served his suspension for violations of baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract and apologized to the Yankees, its management and fans, but declined to publicly discuss details of his conduct. The threetime AL MVP is owed $61 million by the Yankees for the nal three seasons of his contract. He has lost his third base job and is competing for at-bats at DH and as a backup at third.ARODFROM PAGE 1 Tampa Bay’s 13th consecutive opening day starter age 30 or younger. The only Rays pitcher over the age of 30 to start opening day is Tanyon Sturtze, who was 31 when he did it in 2002. “He was extremely excited,” Cash said of Cobb. “I kind of expected him to say, ‘Yeah, OK, whatever,’ but he was pumped. And you look back and you’re like, ‘Man, he’s had some good pitchers here that he’s had to wait in turn for Shields and Price and those guys.’ I think he looks at it as being an honor, because there have been some good ones here in the past that have done it. “I think for the organization, you respect what the other guys have done in Arch and Smyly. But Cobb, he’s right there with them. It’s always a tough decision, because we know everyone wants to do it, but at the same time, with the way Cobb pitched last year and also the work he’s put in this offseason — along with Arch — has been really impressive to watch.” With Price in Detroit after starting the last two opening days for the Rays, the choice entering spring training ultimately came down to Cobb or Archer. Cobb said he “obviously thought it was a possibility” that he would be chosen, but he would have had “nothing but excitement for him also” if Archer got the nod instead. Archer went 10-9 with a 3.33 ERA and 173 strikeouts in his rst full season last year, but he said it doesn’t matter to him whether he pitches the rst day or the fth day. “As long as I’m able to pitch every ve days in the big leagues on the highest stage possible,” he said, “I’m happy.” “It crossed my mind,” Archer said of starting April 6, “but in all reality, I knew that Cobb was going to be (the opening day starter). Everybody knew that Cobb was going to be the opening day starter. I thought about it and if there was a case to be made, I had a case. But I’m not selsh enough to let it upset me. It doesn’t even motivate me, because I’m still going to try to go out there and do the same thing.” Cobb acknowledged that being the opening day starter comes with added responsibility, saying “there’s going to be a lot of eyes looking at you and judging you on how you go about your business” and that the younger pitchers will look to him to “watch how you go about your business and try to replicate that.” But the best thing to do is embrace it, Cobb said. Especially if it means getting to start on opening day. “We open up at home every year, so the last three years that I’ve seen the opening day there, the energy and the excitement that I’ve seen, I’ve always wanted to be a part of it,” Cobb said. “I’ve been able to watch some really good pitchers in the past in our organization go out there and really feed off that energy, so I’m really looking forward to experiencing that.”Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or PAGE 1 MLB: Leading oLee, Darvish take the mound for spring debutsA look at the highlights of what’s happening all around spring training in Florida and Arizona today: Starter spotlight: Cliff Lee, who made his final start of 2014 on July 31 because of a strained left elbow, starts for Philadelphia against Houston in Kissimmee, Florida. Lee, the 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner with Cleveland, was sidelined from May 18 until July 21 because of a left flexor pronator strain, and cut short his third start back in the third inning. The 35-year-old was 4-5 with a 3.65 ERA in 13 starts. ... Texas’ Yu Darvish makes his spring debut after last season ended prematurely for him due to elbow inflammation. Darvish was shut down after a start Aug. 9. He was 10-7 with a 3.06 ERA. Welcome back: Left-hander Barry Zito takes the mound against professional hitters for the first time since 2013 when the A’s play the Cubs in Mesa, Arizona. In camp on a minor league deal with the team he won the 2002 AL Cy Young Award with, the 36-year-old Zito took off last year. Hoping for an encore: Clayton Kershaw makes his spring debut against the White Sox. Kershaw led Los Angeles to the NL West title last year, going 21-3 with a career-low 1.77 ERA. He won his second straight NL Cy Young Award and his first MVP trophy but faltered in the Dodgers’ first-round playoff loss to St. Louis. Star power: Indians outfielder Michael Brantley makes his spring debut after being slowed by a stiff back. An All-Star for the first time in 2014, Brantley finished third in AL MVP voting after batting .327 with 20 homers and 97 RBIs. Thumb test: Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun is going to test his surgically repaired thumb in a game for the first time when the Brewers play the Angels at Tempe, Arizona. Braun hit only 19 homers last year, and the 2011 NL MVP says the nerve problem in his thumb played a significant role. A little competition: St. Louis isn’t wasting any time getting a look at the three pitchers vying for the fifth spot in its starting rotation. Right-hander Carlos Martinez gets the ball for the Cardinals’ opener against Miami in Jupiter. Left-hander Marco Gonzales starts Friday against Houston, and lefty Jaime Garcia, coming off shoulder surgery, will start Saturday vs. Washington.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOTexas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish throws during spring training baseball practice in Surprise, Ariz. on Feb. 22. Darvish is set to make his spring debut today. WEDNESDAY’S GAMES Linescores from Wednesday’s spring training games appear on PAGE 3. ST. LUCIE COUNTY — A New York Mets fan has put his displeasure with the team’s ownership on full display. Gary Palumbo, a 39-year-old from New Hampshire, paid to have a billboard with the message “Fred, Jeff & Saul, Ya Gotta Leave,” erected on Interstate 95, about eight miles north of Tradition Field, the Mets spring training home. The billboard is blue with white and orange lettering — Mets colors. The message is aimed at owner Fred Wilpon, president Saul Katz and CEO Jeff Wilpon. The Mets last made the playoffs in 2006. “Most Mets fans really dislike the Wilpons and don’t feel they’re capable of running a team in New York properly,” Palumbo told The Associated Press. “I completely appreciate that it won’t convince them to sell the team, but I hope it will add pressure.” Palumbo said he raised $7,000 for two similar billboards near Citi Field in Queens. Those billboards cost approximately $5,000, so he used the remaining money for the one placed in unincorporated St. Lucie County.Fan hopes billboard sends sign to Mets MLB BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Cash: Don’t read anything into lineupPORT CHARLOTTE — The Tampa Bay Rays are happy to nally begin playing in games today. They might have been even happier if they began playing games one or two days ago. The Rays posted the lineup for the spring opener against the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday. Some of the highlights include Tim Beckham playing second and batting leadoff, Asdrubal Cabrera playing shortstop and batting third, and third baseman Evan Longoria and rst baseman James Loney bat ting fourth and fth, respectively. Each position player is expected to play four or ve innings in the eld and get two at-bats before being subbed out for backups, which have already been decided. Manager Kevin Cash said there’s not much to read into the lineup and elding alignment, though, saying “we’ll see a bunch of different guys the next day.” As of right now, he said, the playing-time schedule through the March 10 split-squad games against the Pittsburgh Pirates and Boston Red Sox has already been laid out. The pitchers, including starter Nathan Karns, are all expected to pitch one inning, though Cash said they could pitch a little longer if they get through that inning quickly. Today’s game will also mark the beginning of spring training for the new coaching staff, which features a rst-time manager (Cash), bench coach (Tom Foley), rst base coach (Rocco Baldelli) and third base coach (Charlie Montoyo). “Charlie and I will be doing a lot of communication,” Cash said. “It’s good for me, because I havem’t done that before. And it’s new for Charlie. He’s managed 18 years, but he’s never received signs. He’s always been the guy that gives them. We were talking about it (Wednesday) morning; pitch goes through the zone and we’re making eye contact right away.” Hello Oscar: Newly named opening day starter Alex Cobb learned a little more information about the lost dog he found on Harborview Road on Monday. A trip to the vet revealed the dog had an embedded chip in its shoulder, and they were able to use that information to trace the dog — named Oscar — back to a former owner in Fort Myers. The original owner said she gave up the dog to somebody else, and would attempt to work with Cobb to contact the most recent owner. “The people at the kennel said this happens all the time. People get a dog and decide they don’t want it, and they just let it go. So it’s looking like it’s a homeless dog for now,” Cobb said. “But we’re taking good care of him at my house. Him and Axel (Cobb’s American Bulldog) are becoming quite close.” Cobb said he still hopes he will be able to find the dog’s owner, but he has had thoughts of keeping Oscar if he can’t. There have also been some discussions about making the dog into team mascot, like the Milwaukee Brewers did when a stray dog named Hank wandered into their spring training complex last year. “His personality is starting to grow on me,” Cobb said. “(Wednesday) morning, I took him and my dog out, and they both went to the bathroom, looked at each other, sprinted at each other and both leaped into each other. Axel’s eight times the size of him, so it just bounced on it’s back. But it was fun. You grow attached to it.” Extra bases: The Rays had a short workout on Wednesday because of the annual Rays Charity Golf Tournament at the Ritz Carlton Golf Club in Bradenton, which benefits the Rays Baseball Foundation. Left-hander Drew Smyly was the only Rays pitcher to throw a live bullpen session Wednesday. The between-innings clock has been installed at Charlotte Sports Park and will be used during all spring training games, but Cash doesn’t anticipate it being a big transition. Tomorrow will be Military Appreciation Day at Charlotte Sports Park. The first 5,000 fans will receive a Rays military-themed t-shirt.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MLB: Rays notebook TODAY’S RAYS LINEUPReplacements in parentheses 1) Tim Beckham (Ryan Brett) – 2B 2) John Jaso (Justin O’Conner) – DH 3) Asdrubal Cabrera (Hak-Ju Lee) – SS 4) Evan Longoria (Juan Francisco) – 3B 5) James Loney (Allan Dykstra) – 1B 6) David DeJesus (Corey Brown) – LF 7) Brandon Guyer (Joey Butler) – RF 8) Kevin Kiermaier (Mikie Mahtook) – CF 9) Curt Casali (Luke Maile) – C Pitchers RH Nathan Karns, RH Kevin Jepsen, RH Brad Boxberger, RH Steven Geltz, LH Enny Romero, LH C.J.

Last year, Tampa Bay entered spring training with World Series aspirations. This year, they entered camp with a new frontofce leader, a rstyear manager and a revamped roster. Opening day is a month away, and the Rays have numerous questions to answer. Five of the most pressing:Can Matt Silverman and Kevin Cash replicate the success of Andrew Friedman and Joe Maddon?Former executive vice president of baseball operations Friedman made most of the personnel decisions that allowed the lowbudget Rays to be competitive, and the affable, laidback Maddon was the manager that made everything tick on the eld. The biggest question entering this season — and beyond — is whether Silverman and Cash can replicate that success. Silverman worked alongside Friedman for years, and he already exed his new muscle with a series of offseason trades. Cash could never match the personality of Maddon, but he’s drawn rave reviews from the clubhouse in his rst spring as a manager. Whether Silverman’s offseason overhaul works and how rookie skipper Cash manages a freshly rebuilt roster will go a long way toward answering this question.Can the starting rotation be as good, or better, than it was last year?The Rays might not be most pundits’ pick to win the American League East, but many have argued their starting rotation is the best in the division. Cash and Silverman agree the rotation led by Alex Cobb, Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi and Drew Smyly will be Tampa Bay’s biggest strength. It could be better than a year ago if a few things break right: Cobb throws 200 innings for the rst time, Odorizzi improves on a 4.14 rookie -year ERA and Smyly builds off a career year. The Rays will need to choose someone, perhaps Nathan Karns or Alex Colome, for the fth starter spot to start the season, but the rotation should get a boost when left -hander Matt Moore returns from Tommy John surgery sometime in June.How will the Rays make up for what they lost on offense?Of the 13 position players on last year’s opening day roster, seven — Ben Zobrist, Wil Myers, Matt Joyce, Yunel Escobar, Ryan Hanigan, Sean Rodriguez and Jose Molina — have been traded or released. So how do the Rays replace their production? The obvious answers are newcomers Asdrubal Cabrera, John Jaso, Steven Souza and Rene Rivera. All should play crucial roles as the Rays try to improve an offense that nished 2014 ranked 27th in the majors in runs scored. But the key to Tampa Bay’s success at the plate lies in the hands of the returning players. Can Evan Longoria bounce back after a disappointing season? Can Desmond Jennings nally live up to expectations? Can Kevin Kiermaier improve on a solid rookie campaign? If the offense is going to improve, the Rays might need the answer to all those questions to be yes.Will the Rays regret trading Wil Myers?The loss of Zobrist likely hurts more in the short term: He was an extremely versatile veteran and a clubhouse leader. But the Myers trade is the one that will be remembered. When he won the American League Rookie of the Year award in 2013, the prize of the James Shields trade was considered one of the Rays’ central building blocks. Now, he’s wearing a San Diego Padres uniform. Whether the Rays regret the deal could depend on the success Steven Souza Jr. Acquired from Washington as part of the three -team trade that included Myers, the 25yearold outelder is rated by as the fth-best prospect in baseball entering the season. He was blocked from advancing to the majors in Washington by the presence of Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth. However, Souza has considerable talent: He hit .350 with 18 home runs and 75 RBIs in Triple -A last year. He has a denite shot at opening the season as the Rays starting right elder.Who is going to emerge in the middle ineld?The only thing clear going into the exhibition schedule is Asdrubal Cabrera will be an everyday player. Which middle ineld position he’ll play and who will play alongside him remain up in the air. Cabrera has said he’s comfortable playing both second base and shortstop, but he would like to stick to just one. Cash said there’s a chance he could switch often, though. The Rays have a number of options to play alongside Cabrera: Nick Franklin, Logan Forsythe, Tim Beckham and Hak -Ju Lee. Only two are likely to make the team. The next month will be used to see whether it will be the second piece of the David Price trade, the 2013 acquisition from the San Diego Padres or the former top prospects, respectively. — Josh VitaleFIVE SPRING TRAINING QUESTIONS Thursday, March 5, 2015 The Sun Page 3 adno=50478672 Voted #1 6 Years in a Row!

HOW THE RAYS WERE REBUILT THIS WINTER AGE: 31 POSITION: Catcher BATS/THROWS: R/R HGT/WGT: 5 -10/214 ACQUIRED: In trade with Padres CONTRACT: 1 year/$1.2 million (arbitration eligible 2016 -17) CAREER: Longtime backup and career .228 hitter broke out last season, batting .252 with 11 home runs and 44 RBIs in 103 games. STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: Rivera is a strong defensive catcher who has already drawn rave reviews from the Rays pitching staff. He’s inexperienced as a full -time catcher, though, having played 224 major league games since 2004. WHERE HE’LL FIT IN: Should play 100 -plus games as starting catcher. AGE: 30 POSITION: Reliever BATS/THROWS: R/R HGT/WGT: 6 -3/230 ACQUIRED: In trade with Angels CONTRACT: 1 year/$3.025 million (arbitration eligible 2016) CAREER: 13 -18 with a 3.97 ERA and five saves over seven seasons STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: Jepsen has struggled in the past due to slumps or injuries, but manager Kevin Cash called his stuff “electric.” He’s coming off a career year where he compiled a 2.63 ERA over 65 innings. WHERE HE’LL FIT IN: Setup man or fillin closer in bullpen. AGE: 29 POSITION: Infielder BATS/THROWS: S/R HGT/WGT: 60/205 ACQUIRED: Free agent CONTRACT: 1 year/$7.5 million CAREER: .268 hitter who has averaged 17 home runs and 71 RBIs the past four seasons STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: Solid, if unspectacular, hitter who can hit for decent average with mid teens power and some speed. He has the ability to play both second base and shortstop. WHERE HE’LL FIT IN: Will be an everyday player in the middle infield. AGE: 25 POSITION: Outfielder BATS/THROWS: R/R HGT/WGT: 6 -4/224 ACQUIRED: In trade with Washington CONTRACT: Under team control until 2020 CAREER: The 2014 International League (Triple A) Most Valuable Player has hit .130 with two home runs in 23 major league at -bats. STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: Souza has talent, as demonstrated by a 2014 season in which he hit .350 with 14 home runs, 44 RBIs and 26 stolen bases in TripleA. But there could be a learning curve if he breaks camp with the Rays. WHERE HE’LL FIT IN: Should earn a spot in Rays’ outfield rotation out of camp.

But after an offseason of turnover in the front ofce, coach’s locker room and clubhouse, they had to make one for camp: Batting practice jerseys are required during all workouts. “That’s a rule,” rstyear manager Kevin Cash said, laughing. “Just so I didn’t call Jake Elmore Logan Forsythe.” It makes sense that Cash might need the help learning names and faces in his inaugural season as the Rays manager, but the rule is probably necessary for the returning players and front ofce staff — and sportswriters — as well. There are 63 nameplates in the Rays’ spring training clubhouse, and 31 of them weren’t there a year ago. That’s one of the spring’s major themes. The next month of spring training games isn’t just about prepar ing for another season. It’s also about introducing a whole new club. “There are lots of ways to describe it, but I like to call it a reloading of the team and the organization,” President of Baseball Operations Matt Silverman said at the start of spring training. “We were able to bring on a number of new players in the organization at the major league level and the minor league level that are going to provide value and impact for years to come. Our internal expectations are still very high because of the players that we have, and we’re looking forward to a better season this year.” The changes came early and often once last season ended. Former Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman — the ar chitect of the previous nine Rays squads — left for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Oct. 14. Ten days later, former manager Joe Maddon opted out of the nal year of his contract. Silverman, who moved up to ll Friedman’s role, brought in 37yearold Kevin Cash as manager on Dec. 6, giving the pair 11 weeks to revamp a 77win Tampa Bay team before pitchers and catchers reported to spring training on Feb. 21. Revamp they did. Gone are Sean Rodriguez, Jose Molina, Jose Peralta, Jeremy Hellickson, Wil Myers, Ryan Hanigan, Matt Joyce, Ben Zobrist and Yunel Escobar. In their place are Erensto Frieri, Rene Rivera, Steven Souza Jr., Kevin Jepsen, Bobby Wilson, Asdrubal Cabrera and John Jaso. While it may seem like a rebuild on the surface, Silverman is adamant that it’s not. Many of the moves were made with the intent of infusing much-needed talent into the farm system: Eight of Baseball America’s top 20 Rays prospects joined the organization in the last calendar year. But the new president of baseball operations insists the talent level in the majors is just as high as it was last year, when many predicted Tampa Bay would be a World Series contender. Third baseman Evan Longoria is still the face of the franchise. James Loney will again man rst base. Alex Cobb, Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi and Drew Introductions abound after busy offseasonBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITEROFFSEASON | 11 When did you get introduced to the game of baseball? “I started playing baseball really, really young. I think I was 5 years old or 4 years old in a little league in Puerto Rico called Pampers, like the diapers. I started playing there, and since then I just loved baseball.” Was there a moment when you realized you could play professionally? “I have to say yes. Probably when I was 14 going 15, I started separating from the rest of the guys and started working more toward becoming a professional baseball player.” Was there a coach who put the idea of playing in the U.S. in your head? “At the beginning, it was my stepdad. He used to play baseball, not professional baseball, but he had some friends that played professional baseball like Rico Rossy, Oreste Marrero — they’re buddies. He’s the one who wanted me to get better and work with me, then before I signed to play professional baseball, Rafael Santo Domingo — he’s a scout right now for Seattle in Puerto Rico — he took me and worked every day.” Did you always have a feeling that you would one day make it to this point? “I worked for it. I knew I had the ability to do it. It took me a while, but I worked hard for the opportunity. In this business, you’ve got to work for it, win the job and just play 100 percent. Ever since I signed back in 2001, I wanted to be established in the big leagues, and hopefully, nally, I get the opportunity to.” PORT CHARLOTTE — The Tampa Bay Rays aren’t big on team rules.

Page 8 The Sun Thursday, March 5, 2015 MANAGERPORT CHARLOTTE — Kevin Cash never knew what his fate would be when he walked into a major league clubhouse. A fringe player on whatever roster he was on, the former big league backup catcher knew getting designated or optioned was a real possibility every day. Now, as he replaces Joe Maddon and begins his rst year as the Tampa Bay Rays manager, that’s one of Cash’s biggest points of emphasis: He wants to introduce himself to all 63 players in the clubhouse, and he wants each of them to know where they stand as spring training games get underway. Since pitchers and catchers ofcially reported to camp on Feb. 21, Cash has been calling many of them into his ofce one by one. It’s a way to welcome the new players to a new organization and the returning players to a new regime, as well as a chance to tell them exactly what the Rays foresee their role to be heading into the spring. “I hope most of the people have appreciated coming in and talking to me,” Cash said. “The guys who are new to camp, new to the Rays, we felt (we should) introduce ourselves and kind of set that tone of communication early.” The idea isn’t a novel one — former skipper Joe Maddon did it — but it is one players appreciate. Reliever Ernesto Frieri, who signed with the Rays during the offseason, said he had similar meetings with his past managers: Bud Black (San Diego Padres), Mike Scioscia (Los Angeles Angels) and Clint Hurdle (Pittsburgh Pirates). None were as extensive as his meeting with Cash. “That was really nice of them,” Frieri said. “I know that he’s busy right now, but he takes the time to talk to each player. That shows a lot from him, and I really like that. And it’s not just me; you see him talking to a lot of people. That’s positive.” The idea came from Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona, who Cash coached under for two years in Cleveland and played under for three years in Boston. Even in Red Sox clubhouses lled with players such as David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez and Dustin Pedroia, Cash said Francona’s temperament was the same for everyone on the team. “He treated the 23rd, 24th and 25th players the same way he treated the superstars,” Cash said. “I don’t know if there are a lot of managers you could say that about. And I don’t know if he went out of his way to do that, to make you feel comfortable, but in the long run, he knew at some point guys like myself would be needed in 162 games. It was like, ‘We’re going to make these guys comfortable also.’” Cash has taken it further with the Rays: One day two weeks ago, the major league manager went out to the back elds and threw batting practice to the minor league players who had reported to camp early. “No one asked him to do it, but it makes a statement when your major league manager is taking time out of his day,” President of Baseball Operations Matt Silverman said. “He could be showering and cleaning up and going to play golf, but instead is out there working with the minor leaguers, getting to know them and establish himself.” For Cash, the two most important qualities in a manager are “consistency and communication.” Those are the two things he’s striving to provide most in his rst season with the Rays. “That was something that I valued a lot as a player,” Cash said. “That type of communication goes a long way. There’s some tough nights for younger players who don’t know, playing the guessing game of, ‘Is it me, is it my turn?’ So I think good communication and a level of consistency.”Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or stresses personal connectionsBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER PHOTO BY TOM O’NEILLTampa Bay manager Kevin Cash hits ground balls to inelders during a recent workout at Charlotte Sports Park.

A fringe player on whatever roster he was on, the former big league backup catcher knew getting designated or op Cash stresses personal connections when he walked into a major league How did you become a catcher? “I was in the Cape Cod League, play ing third base. We had two catchers go down in one night; one was sick and one got hurt, I think, and it was kind of like a volunteer, like, ‘Who wants to catch?’ I wanted to, so I went back there and had some success in the rst or second inning throwing a guy out, and there were a bunch of amateur scouts there. I guess the right people saw enough of what they needed to see, and that’s kind of how it started.” When did you know you wanted to become a manager? “I don’t know if there was ever a given point when I knew. When the Texas opportunity presented itself late in the year (2014) and the front ofce contacted my former front ofce in Cleveland, it was a shock. It wasn’t something that I was anticipating at this stage, but then as I started preparing for the Texas opportunity, I almost kind of gained some momentum and gained some condence in talking and being able to really process some thoughts moving forward.” How did Terry Francona shape your coaching philosophy? “I can talk all day about Tito and his philosophy and what I’m going to pull from him. The biggest thing I watch is the way he communicates with players. It can be your three-hole hitter or your backup catcher, and I got to be in that role playing for him, so I see how he treats people. I see how he treats his coaching staff, the personnel that’s in and out on a daily basis, and the quality of relationships he has formed with the Red Sox and his current team, the Indians. That’s something I paid attention to on a daily basis.” 9 4 1 7 4 3 3 1 1 3 9 4 1 7 4 3 3 1 1 3 941-743-3113 A U T O A I R A U T O A I R AUTO AIR S P E C I A L I S T S P E C I A L I S T SPECIALIST Over 27 Years Experience VOTED BEST OF CHARLOTTE COUNTY VOTED BEST OF CHARLOTTE COUNTY 10 YEARS IN A ROW 10 YEARS IN A ROW Whidden Industrial Park 23355 Janice Ave Port Charlotte WWW .A UTO A IR S PECIALIST .

How did you get introduced to baseball? “That was at age 12. I remember that I was watching a game with my family, the last game of the World Series in 1997. Edgar Renteria was playing for the Marlins, and he got up with bases loaded, Game 7, tie game, inning 11. I remember. He got the base hit and they won it all, and all my family got excited, including myself. I feel like how my mom and my grandma and my cousins and all the people in my family that were jumping around and so happy and proud that I was like, ‘Dude. I want to play baseball like Edgar Renteria, and I want to make my family feel proud of me.’ The next day, I went to a eld, started practicing and fell in love with the game. And here I am right now.” When did you realize you had a chance to play professionally in the U.S.? “The very rst time that I threw a baseball and the coach (Marcial del Valle) told me that I had a really good arm. I had never thrown a baseball before, and I threw it and he was like, ‘Hey, dude, you threw it really hard.’ That made me feel so good. I remember that like it happened yesterday. It made me feel like I can do this, I can make it over there, because I had a lot of respect for that coach. And when he told me that, it gave me another excuse to keep coming to the eld, keep working and get better. That day I told myself I was going to be a big-league guy, that I was going to be on TV and make my family feel proud. That was the day I made the decision, and here I am.”Success starts with pitchingBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER PHOTO BY TOM O’NEILLDurability is one of the key metrics for Alex Cobb heading into Tampa Bay’s season.STARTING | 11THE ROTATION PORT CHARLOTTE — There’s no denying Tampa Bay went through an overhaul this offseason. Manager Joe Maddon and executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman are gone. As are Ben Zobrist, Wil Myers, Matt Joyce, Yunel Escobar, Sean Rodriguez, Ryan Hanigan, Jeremy Hellickson, Joel Peralta and Cesar Ramos, among others. But Alex Cobb, Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi and Drew Smyly remain. And if the Rays nd success, these four will be a big part of the reason. Let us re-introduce you to the starting rotation. “In comparison, nobody is better than us,” right-hander Archer said of the team’s staff. “There may be some other teams with one guy that’s better than one guy, but, collectively, I think we’re better than anybody in the league.” It’s an argument that can be made given the success the Rays experienced even after former ace David Price was traded midseason. Tampa Bay nished the second half of the year with a 3.15 staff ERA, a mark that ranked fth in the majors over that stretch. Four of those starters return, and the staff will get a boost when former 17game winner Matt Moore returns from Tommy John surgery. Though Cobb, Archer, Odorizzi, Smyly or Moore do not t what Archer calls the “stereotypical denition” of an ace — guys who pitch 200 innings or win 20 games — all four have ashed enough ability to make those numbers at least a possibility this season. If one pitcher on the staff is truly primed to jump to that level, it’s Cobb. The right-hander compiled winning records with sub-2.90 ERAs in each of the past two seasons, averaging 10 wins and 14115 strikeouts per year during that stretch. The only thing missing has been durability: Cobb pitched 14313 innings in 2012 and 16613 innings in 2013, missing extended periods of time because of a concussion and an oblique injury, respectively. “(Pitching 200 innings), that’s always been my goal going into every season.

PORT CHARLOTTE — The middle ineld was seldom a discussion topic last spring. It didn’t need to be. Ben Zobrist was going to be the second baseman and Yunel Escobar was going to be the shortstop. Neither fact was up for debate. That’s not the case this year. Zobrist (Oakland) and Escobar (Washington) are gone. In a spring training with few position battles — fth starter, fth outelder, backup catcher, bullpen — the middle ineld is perhaps the most intriguing. The Rays expect Asdrubal Cabrera to be an everyday player up the middle. They don’t know which position he’ll play, or which player will line up alongside him. There’s Tim Beckham, the No. 1 pick in the 2008 draft who is 15 months removed from ACL surgery. He hit .295 in 24 games across three levels of the minors last season and batted .276 with four home runs, 51 RBIs and 17 stolen bases in his last full year with Triple-A Durham. There’s Nick Franklin, a former topve prospect in Seattle organization who went 7 for 34 in 11 games for the Rays after joining the team in the trade that sent David Price to Detroit. There’s Logan Forsythe, a versatile former San Diego Padre who hit .223 with six home runs and 26 RBIs in a career-high 110 games at four defensive positions last year. There’s also Hak-Ju Lee, the organization’s fth-best prospect, according to; Alexi Casilla, a veteran journeyman with a career .247 batting average; and Jake Elmore, who has played for seven organizations in seven years with 87 games of major league service time. “We’re excited about the guys we have,” manager Kevin Cash said. “We have a lot of people who are going to be playing middle ineld, and we’re looking forward to getting a lot of looks at them.” It might take all of those looks to gure out which will join Cabrera on the major league roster. Cabrera has already said he’s comfortable playing second base or shortstop. Forsythe, Franklin, Casilla and Elmore have major league experience in both spots. Beckham and Lee primarily played shortstop in the minors, but Beckham spent time working at second base during his rehab assignment last year. That versatility means the Rays could give Beckham a shot at the everyday shortstop’s job and put Cabrera at second, or make Cabrera the everyday shortstop and platoon Forsythe and Franklin at second. Beckham, Forsythe and Franklin have minor league options remaining, so the Rays could commit to one or two of those players without fear of losing the other. “I don’t even look at it as a competition,” Franklin said. “Everybody is unique as it is, and everybody is a great player. So what it boils down to is not competition; it’s who can get it done the most consistently.” Either way, the starting middle ineld the Rays announce on opening day will be new. “I think anything’s possible. But it’s too early to tell,” Cash said. “How do you factor in some of the competition? We’ve got to see some of these guys play.”Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or infield provides the most intrigueBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER SUN PHOTOS BY TOM O’NEILLTampa Bay inelder Tim Beckham has played primarily shortstop while rising through the Rays’ organization, but he started playing second last season. Tampa Bay inelder Asdrubal Cabrera is expected to be an everyday player at one or both of the middle ineld spots. MIDDLE INFIELDPage 10 The Sun Thursday, March 5, 2015 PORT CHARLOTTE — The middle ineld was seldom a discussion topic last spring. It didn’t need to be. Ben Zobrist was going to be the second baseman and Yunel Escobar was going to be the shortstop. Neither fact was up for debate. That’s not the case this year. Zobrist (Oakland) and Escobar (Washington) are gone. In a spring training with few position battles — fth starter, fth Was there a moment when you knew you had the ability to play professionally? “Probably as a junior or senior in high school. I played for Team USA, and I think I kind of knew then — I obviously knew I would go to college — but not really until junior or senior year did I think I would be playing pro ball.” Was there a coach that put that idea in your head? “My (Lake Brantley High School) coach, Mike Smith, he kind of compered me to (former major league inelder) Felipe Lopez going through there. Felipe was a good guy — I didn’t ever get to watch him, obviously, but he was the one that really informed me.” What’s the journey like getting from that point to where you are now? “It’s a grind, obviously. Everybody says that. It’s a grind at moments when things aren’t going as well as you want them to. It’s denitely humbling, but I enjoyed experience, honestly, because everybody really needs to go through that.”ONLINEFor breaking news on the Rays, follow us on Twitter @SunCoastSports and our blog: SunCoastSportsNow. com.

Unfortunately, I haven’t met that yet,” Cobb said. “It’s not due to the fact I haven’t tried to make sure in the offseason that I’m going to try to stay healthy to get to that point, it’s just things that have happened. I feel like I know what it takes to get to that point, I just have to stay on the eld.” Archer compiled a 3.33 ERA and 173 strike outs in his second full season. Odorizzi went 11-14 with a 4.12 ERA in his rookie campaign, and Smyly went 3-1 with a 1.70 ERA over seven starts for the Rays after coming over in the Price trade. “We’re right up to the top,” Cobb said. “Seeing what we did last year compared to the rest of the league, it’s very encouraging. And knowing how hard everyone has worked this offseason, there’s no reason why we can’t take a few steps forward. Compared to the rest of the league, we’ll see how that pans out. But I think we should be a better staff than we were last year.” On Day 1 of spring training, Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said, “If you’ve got starting pitching, you’ve got a leg up going into the season.” If that’s true, this over hauled Tampa Bay squad has every chance to be successful this season. “I’m thrilled with the guys we have taking the mound,” Cash said. “All of these pieces are going to help.”Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or PAGE 9 AP PHOTOTampa Bay starting pitcher Chris Archer is one of the 32 players in Port Charlotte this winter who were here wearing a Rays jersey last year.

And some of the new additions have been the talk of camp. Rivera, the team’s new starting catcher, has drawn rave reviews for his defensive acumen and ability to connect with pitchers. Cabrera, a Cash favorite from Cleveland, gives the middle ineld a two -time All -Star. Reliever Kevin Jepsen has impressed Cash as he tries to build on a career year, and fellow reliever Ernesto Frieri is said to be ready to get back to the form that saw him save 60 games from 201213. “I feel we’re a very competitive, good team,” Cash said. “I’m excited to come out and see the new additions and some of the returning players. I know as a group in here, we’re excited. We don’t pay much attention to what’s said outside of this group. We keep our thoughts to ourselves. But we’re very excited about starting spring and producing a good ball club.” Provided Cash can recognize them all by opening day, of course. “As long as they’ve got the jerseys on,” Cash said. “I’ll be all right.”C ontact Josh Vitale at 9412061122 or jvitale@sun PAGE 5 P090127.1 rfntbnrrn fbrrb bMAJORLEAGUESERVICE.Mike Martin, Agent t adno=50478624 LANDSCAPING SUPPLIES & DELIVERY SERVICE Aggregate Supplies Weed Matting & Edging Free Estimates Gas Fireplaces Concrete Statues Murdock Stones, Etc. offers delivery service at a nominal price.

I’ve never had my picture in the paper before and I and my family back in Pennsylvania got a real kick out of it. Thank you! — Robert S. Bitner ROBERT: It’s always a pleasure to publish a shing story from a reader, especially one in which the magazine helped you have a better time on the water. I hope more readers will follow your example and share their stories with us. — Josh Olive, WaterLine Publisher JOSH: If it is high tide at El Jobean at 8 a.m., when will it be high tide at the U.S. 41 bridge over the Myakka River? Kayakers would like to know. — Kirk Bodwell KIRK: The answer depends partly on how fast the river is owing. The 41 bridge in North Port is about 7.5 miles upstream of El Jobean. Right now, high tides are running about 45 minutes behind the El Jobean predictions and low tides are about an hour behind. High tides arrive sooner because the incoming tide acts like a dam, backing up the river’s ow. To compare the tide times whenever you want, bookmark and The rst link will show you gauge heights at the 41 bridge. When you look at it, you’ll see it rises and falls with the tide. Adjust the graph to show just one day and you can approximate the tide times. The second link will show you tides at El Jobean. A little simple math will give you your answer. As we get into the rainy season and the river ows faster, you’ll see high tides arriving upstream faster and low tides arriving later. — Josh Olive, WaterLine Publisher JOSH: I turned the page and again a gun was pointing at me. Quit pointing a gun at me. — Jack Kartz JACK: My apologies. The reason for such a rude act is to illustrate how unpleasant it is to look down a barrel from the wrong end and so encourage readers to prepare for such an eventuality. If it’s that disturbing printed on paper, the actual experience must be truly life-changing. — Josh Olive, WaterLine PublisherIf you have a comment or question for WaterLine, email it to are welcome on any outdoor-related subject, but we do have some rules.

I had a great chat the other day with a lady in one of our local tackle shops. We were talking about all the dierent sh you can catch in the area and she told me about a trip she and her husband had recently taken with a charter captain. I asked her what they had caught, and she said, “Well, we got a few big ones and a few small ones. I think they were jacks.” I said that many area anglers wouldn’t think that was much of a day on the water. She said, “Oh, we thought it was just amazing. We saw dolphins and pelicans and so many sh in the water. It was just like a nature documentary, only we were in it instead of watching it on TV.” She’s right — it really is. When one of WaterLine’s writers drops the word “paradise” in reference to Southwest Florida’s waters and wild places, it’s not just hyperbole. What we’ve got here is something really special, but it’s so easy to get jaded to it. It’s human nature to take things for granted. Some times, seeing things through someone else’s eyes helps remind us of what matters. I hope I never forget that, and if I do I hope someone reminds me. And I hope the same for each of you. Enjoy it and treasure it, because it really is unique and irreplaceable. A special place FROM THE PUBLISHER’S DESK JOSH OLIVE WaterLine photo by Josh OliveThis place is magical. Don’t forget it.

Page 6 March 5, 2015 LOCAL FISHING REPORTS FROM VENICE TO PINE ISLAND INSHORE & FRESHWATER GULF & OFFSHORE BEST BETThe bite has really picked up in Lemon Bay, though a lot of them have been smaller sh. DOA CAL shad in natural sh colors have been fantastic. Flounder have been plentiful around Gasparilla Sound. Snook at El Jobean have been biting well at rst light, so long as the water is moving. Yo-Zuri 3Ds and MirrOdines are getting bit. Jacks to 8 pounds have been caught all over. Bass are hitting in the canals and golf course ponds; plastic worms are good. No reports this week. The sheepshead bite on the Venice jetties has gotten really good, with plenty of sh taking shrimp or sand eas. Warm water is heating up the bite. Redsh and trout are hitting Lucky Craft Gunsh and other topwaters if the water is calm enough or handpicked shrimp otherwise. Over-slot snook have been caught in Turtle Bay and El Jobean on big lipped plugs. Surf shing has been good, with pompano, whiting and ounder on Manasota Beach and at the south end of Gasparilla Island. A few are also biting in Lemon Bay Park. Red grouper and some big mangrove and yellowtail snapper are chewing hard in 85 feet and deeper. Anglers are also reporting a few African pompano and amberjack, plus some jumbo lane snapper. The nearshore reefs are holding lots of porgies, grunts and smaller mangs. Sheepshead are biting in and around the trestles, boat docks and passes. Bait with small shrimp or ddler crabs if you can catch them. Trout are very good on the ats. Try shrimp on a popping cork or any type of soft plastic. Don’t be surprised to hit a nice red in the same areas. Mangrove snapper and sheepshead are very good around structure, and we’re even seeing some on the ats. Both are eating shrimp, but I would recommend pieces of shrimp on a small larva jig for the sheeps. Snapper and black drum are being caught in the surf on larger handpicked shrimp. 6to 7-foot blacktip and sandbar sharks are eating mullet halves along the beaches. Snook are hot at El Jobean and in the Myakka. I would recommend live pinsh, large handpicked shrimp, swimbaits, or larger swimming plugs such as a Bomber or X-Rap. FISHING TIP OF THE WEEK: If you’re one of those people who believe that you’re not really fishing unless you get started when it’s still pitch-dark outside, you’re in luck. During the winter, fish are often lazy and unwilling to bite first thing in the morning. Once the sun warms things up, that’s when the fish really get going. In fact, in winter, the best bite is often at the end of the day. But summer is coming, and in summer the fish have the opposite problem — instead of being too cold to eat, they’re too hot to eat. That’s when the dawn fisherman has a leg up on the other guys. With the chill of the last cold front still lingering in their bones, the fish won’t be making this switch overnight. It will be a gradual transition. Right now, that means the best time to fish is — well, almost any time. Species that aren’t bothered by cool water such as flounder, cobia, trout and sheepshead will probably be eating just fine at dawn. Redfish, snook and tarpon, which prefer their water a bit warmer, will probably still be late risers. Want them all? There’s a sweet spot a couple hours after sunrise when the morning fish are still active and the afternoon fish have begun stirring.

Redsh are cruising the deeper troughs on low tides, especially near oyster bars. Trout action is picking up, with lots of 15-inchers and a few 20s. MirrOdines and Lil Johns are good choices. Whitebait and glass minnows are starting to get thicker. Bluesh and big ladysh have been crashing them on the deeper ats. Scattered pompano reports are coming in. Sharks are swimming around the ICW and o the beaches. Pinsh, Spanish mackerel and jacks are good baits. They may also eat the sh you’re trying to catch. Red grouper, mangrove snapper and a few cobia are coming in from the reefs. Anglers o Venice are reporting a few hogsh too. There are sheepshead all over — oyster bars, ats, piers, bridges — eating shrimp or crabs. Redsh are scattered on the east and west walls, with the shing better further south. Trout are in Alligator Creek eating shrimp or soft plastics on incoming tides. Pompano and a few ounder are outside the bar from Alligator Creek to Pirate Harbor. Sheepshead are biting on docks and rocks from Laishley Park to the ICW. Smaller sharks are popping up all over the Harbor. Cobia have been reported around Marker 2 and other similar structure. Spanish mackerel and a few bonita have been reported at 15 miles. Mangrove and lane snapper are biting on the nearshore reefs, along with some short red grouper. For keeper reds, move out to 100 feet of water. Some big amberjack have been caught on the deep wrecks. Cobia and tripletail are gathering near anything oating. Black drum are drumming in the Punta Gorda canals. Fish a shrimp on a No. 2 circle hook on bottom where there’s moving water around docks or points. The evening bite is best. The snook bite has been spotty, with the best bite at Placida and El Jobean. There are also some sh in Whidden Bay. Redsh are scattered all over on the east wall and in Pine Island Sound; shrimp, pinsh and whitebait are choice. Some good trout are coming from Bokeelia down the west side of Pine Island to St. James City. Bonnetheads are moving on the ats. A few cobia have been sighted in the center of the Harbor and on the west wall bar. The porgies and sheepshead are biting well on the nearshore reefs. A few oddball Spanish mackerel are showing up at 12 to 20 miles. Sandbar sharks are turning up at 10 to 15 miles over the reefs. Cobia, amberjack and red grouper are hungry at 20 to 30 miles. Bring shrimp, squid and sardines. If you can nd live pinsh or mullet, those work too. Mangrove snapper are stupid, both inshore and oshore. Inside, look at Alligator Creek Reef and the PGI canal mouths. Boca and Captiva passes have sh, and all the nearshore reefs. Shrimp! Rat reds are plentiful, but good slot sh are tough — a few have been seen on the ats o Pineland, but they’re not eating. Some Spanish mackerel are showing up at the south end of Sanibel. Warming water should bring snook out of the river over the next few days. The black drum bite has been good in the canals. Anglers are reporting a lot of baitsh at 15 miles and a few kingsh skyrocketing through them. Big red grouper and some truly enormous mangrove snapper have been caught at 28 to 30 miles. A couple of oddball dolphin have also been caught. The trout bite is decent in 4 feet of water. Fish around sandholes and dropos. There are lots of ladysh to avoid. A Z-Man on a 3/8-ounce jighead will get down to the trout fast. ROBERTFISHIN’ FRANK’S Charlotte Harbor 941-625-3888 JEFFCAPT.

DOA CAL shad in natural sh colors have been fantastic. Flounder have been plentiful around Gasparilla Sound. Snook at El Jobean Snook at El Jobean Snook have been biting well at rst light, so long as the water is moving. Yo-Zuri 3Ds and MirrOdines are getting bit. Jacks to 8 pounds have been caught all over. Bass are hitting in the canals and golf course ponds; plastic worms are good. No reports this week. The sheepshead bite on the Venice jetties has gotten really good, with plenty of sh taking shrimp or sand eas. Warm water is heating up the bite. Redsh and trout are hitting Lucky Craft Gunsh and other topwaters if the water is calm enough or handpicked shrimp otherwise. Over-slot snook have been caught in Turtle Bay and El snook have been caught in Turtle Bay and El snook Jobean on big lipped plugs. Surf shing has been good, with pompano , whiting and ounder on Manasota Beach and at the south end of Gasparilla Island. A few are also biting in Lemon Bay Park. Red grouper and some big mangrove and yellowtail snapper are chewing hard in 85 feet and deeper. Anglers are also reporting a few African pompano and amberjack , plus some jumbo lane snapper . The nearshore reefs are holding lots of porgies , grunts and smaller mangs . Sheepshead are biting in and around the trestles, boat docks and passes. Bait with small shrimp or ddler crabs if you can catch them. Trout are very good on the ats. Try shrimp on a popping cork or any type of soft plastic. Don’t be surprised to hit a nice red in the same areas. Mangrove snapper and sheepshead are very good around structure, and we’re even seeing some on the ats. Both are eating shrimp, but I would recommend pieces of shrimp on a small larva jig for the sheeps. Snapper and black drum are being caught in the surf on larger handpicked shrimp. 6to 7-foot blacktip and sandbar sharks are eating mullet halves along the beaches. Snook are hot at El Snook are hot at El Snook Jobean and in the Myakka. I would recom mend live pinsh, large handpicked shrimp, swimbaits, or larger swimming plugs such as a Bomber or X-Rap. FISHING TIP OF THE WEEK: If you’re one of those people who believe that you’re not really fishing unless you get started when it’s still pitch-dark outside, you’re in luck. During the winter, fish are often lazy and unwilling to bite first thing in the morning. Once the sun warms things up, that’s when the fish really get going. In fact, in winter, the best bite is often at the end of the day. But summer is coming, and in summer the fish have the opposite problem — instead of being too cold to eat, they’re too hot to eat. That’s when the dawn fisherman has a leg up on the other guys. With the chill of the last cold front still lingering in their bones, the fish won’t be making this switch overnight. It will be a gradual transition. Right now, that means the best time to fish is — well, almost any time. Species that aren’t bothered by cool water such as flounder, cobia, trout and sheepshead will probably be eating just fine at dawn. Redfish, snook and tarpon, which prefer their water a bit warmer, will probably still be late risers. Want them all? There’s a sweet spot a couple hours after sunrise when the morning fish are still active and the afternoon fish have begun stirring.

Redsh are cruising the deeper troughs on low tides, especially near oyster bars. Trout action is picking up, with lots of 15-inchers and a few 20s. MirrOdines and Lil Johns are good choices. Whitebait and glass minnows are starting to get thicker. Bluesh and big ladysh have been crashing them on the deeper ats. Scattered pompano reports are coming in.

Page 8 March 5, 2015 ‘Shark Lady’ Eugenie Clark dies at 92As a schoolgirl in the 1930s, Eugenie Clark spent countless hours pressed up to the tanks at a New York City aquarium, absorbed by the alli gators, sea turtles and hundreds of species of sh just beyond the glass. There was one creature, however, that completely enthralled her. “If only,” she thought, “I could be in the water with a shark.” Clark eventually got her wish. She became an intrepid under water scientist with the nickname “Shark Lady” after she established a respected marine research labo ratory in Florida in the 1950s and became a best-selling author known for her ability to explain shark behavior and other mysteries of ocean life. Clark died Feb. 25 of lung cancer at her home in Sarasota, said her son, Nikolas Konstantinou. She was 92. Called Genie by her friends, she was the founding director of Sarasota’s Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium, known internationally as a center for shark research. She wrote for National Geographic, appeared on programs with Jacques Cousteau and wrote popular books, including “Lady with a Spear” (1953), about her explorations in Micronesia and the Red Sea, and “The Lady and the Sharks” (1969). “Genie was aectionately known and respected as the ‘Shark Lady’ because her shark research was so innovative and she was dedicated to teaching the truth about sharks,” said Robert Hueter, director of the Center for Shark Research at Mote. “The studies she did in the 1950s and s were groundbreaking.” For example, Clark published the rst scientic study demonstrating that sharks can be trained. She taught them to release food by hitting targets with their snouts. “People generally thought that sharks are dumb eating machines. After some study, I began to realize that these ‘gangsters’ of the deep had gotten a bad rap,” she once told historian Carolyn B. Stegman. When Clark began her career in the late 1940s, marine biology was a “macho” profession, said George H. Burgess, director of the Florida Program for Shark Research at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, who knew Clark for 40 years. “Guys were supposed to pull nets and dive. Genie jumped in with both feet, literally. She became one of the rst diving biologists.” During her seven decades in the eld, she made more than 70 dives in submersibles, to depths as great as 12,000 feet. One of her last dives was on her 92nd birthday last year, in the Red Sea. Clark was born in New York on May 4, 1922. Her mother, Yumico, was a Japanese immigrant and avid swimmer who married Charles Clark, the manager of the pool where she gave lessons. He died when their daughter was 2. The future ichthyologist began her romance with shes when she was about 9. Her mother worked at a Manhattan newsstand on Saturdays, and Clark talked her into letting her pass the time at the old Battery Park Aquarium. Soon she began to collect sh. By the time she was 13, she had hundreds of tropical sh in aquariums. At Hunter College she earned a zoology degree in 1942. She wanted to continue her studies at Columbia University but was discouraged by a professor who said she would prob ably end up being a housewife. She did marry — ve times — and raised four children, but without sacricing her career. (In addition to her children, who all learned to swim before they were 2, she is survived by a grandson.) At New York University she earned a master’s in 1946 and a doctorate in 1950. In between degrees she worked at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, Calif., where she learned to scuba dive from eminent sh biologist Carl Hubbs. In 1951 she went to Egypt on a Fulbright scholarship. During 10 months in and around the Red Sea, she collected 300 species of sh, including three new species and a few dozen poisonous ones. Her discoveries, and the novelty of her gender, earned her a write-up in the New Yorker under the headline “Fish Lady.” The next year, 1953, her autobiographical “Lady with a Spear” was published. One of the book’s admirers was Anne Vanderbilt, a member of the wealthy Vanderbilt family, who lived on the Cape Haze peninsula in Southwest Florida. She invited Clark to visit and wound up building her a small laboratory there which, in 1955, became the Cape Haze Marine Laboratory, later renamed Mote after a generous donor. She left Mote in 1966 to teach at City University of New York and later the University of Maryland. She returned to Mote as a senior scientist in 2000. She published more than 175 articles in popular publications and scholarly journals such as Science. Her last article, on triggersh, came out a few weeks ago. Despite many close calls Clark was never bitten by a shark — at least not by a living one. Years ago she was driving to a lecture with a tiger shark jaw on the seat beside her.

Page 9 March 5, 2015 Being in the top 10 on the last day of competition in the Bassmaster Classic has to be exciting. If you are still within reach of the leader, that’s the time to go for broke and swing for the fences. Knowing Bobby Lane, I’m sure that’s exactly what he did when he came up just short of being crowned the 2015 Bassmaster Classic Champion. When you put time in on the water in less-than-ideal conditions, you run the risk of not nding any sh that will bite. This was not the case for Lane, as he found quality bass for three straight days on Lake Hartwell during the Classic tournament. The only downfall he encountered was coming up one bass short of a limit on Friday. He still managed to come to the scales with more than 10 pounds and keep himself within reach of the leaderboard after day one. By the end of day two, both of the Lane brothers were in reach of rst place. Bobby was in the top 10 and Chris was just outside of it. A few years back it was a role reversal, with Bobby chasing Chris, but back then both Lanes started out the nal day in the Super Six. I remember what Bobby told me after that tournament. He said to me, “Bartzie, if I get that close I’m going for the win. Nothing else matters.” A true statement when rst place pays $300,000 plus countless sponsorship opportunities and second place pays $45,000. That is a huge dierence. So after seeing where Bobby was after the two days of shing this year, I knew exactly what he was going to do. He would go for the win at all costs and see what happened. Back in 2012, he dropped mightily in the stand ings with that approach. This year it almost paid o. It took local favorite Casey Ashley to outdo Lane and claim the top spot. It certainly wasn’t due to lack of eort. Lane weighed in a huge bag of sh that most of his competitors thought gave him the weight to beat. It wasn’t until the local pro walked to the stage that Lane learned he could claim only second place. To come that close and not nish in the top spot had to be gut-wrenching for Lane. Knowing that you left one bass out there to fall short of your limit on the rst day would only add to the heartbreak of what could have been. To get beat by 3.2 pounds when your average catch for the tournament is 3.5 pounds makes you lose sleep at night wondering “what if.” But my hat’s o to him for showing the resilience to come back, keep pushing and make it tight right down to the wire. I have to say, though, once again the brothers Lane showed why they should be feared even outside of our great state’s borders. In very un-Florida-like conditions, they both managed to place in the top 10. They have both shown that they can learn and adapt to any water you put them on. With one Classic title and an Angler of the Year title between them, I know there’s more hardware destined for their trophy showcases. They are fast becoming some of the greats of the bass shing world and I would expect that to continue for years to come. For those of you that caught my little “goof” in selecting Kevin VanDam as being a favorite in the tournament, I apologize. In a past column, I mentioned KVD being considered a favorite with the cold weather conditions. Well, much to my surprise, VanDam didn’t even qualify for the event. I guess the greatness that follows VanDam gets some to assume that he is always going to qualify for the greatest tournament in our sport. But that was not the case this year. My assumption led me to writing about something that could not even happen this year. For that, I apologize to all of our readers out there. I do appreciate those of you that emailed me and pointed this out. I will be the rst to admit that I am not above making a mistake, but I should know better than to assume anything in this sport. Now you know why my wife doesn’t allow me to gamble. You only get in trouble trying to be factual when you only have assumptions.Greg Bartz is a tournament bass sherman based in Lakeland.

Page 11 March 5, 2015 The rapid spread of lionsh into coastal waters of Florida, the Bahamas and much of the Caribbean has received mega-amounts of attention from shery managers and from concerned anglers in recent years. The footlong, frilly sh are native to the Pacic Ocean and, after somehow becoming established in our part of the world, have exploded in population. Some oshore reefs and wrecks are home to hundreds of the gaudy creatures, and it appears that not many of our native predators have as yet learned to eat them. Lionsh aren’t very big, but they’re hungry, and they’re very good at catching smaller sh. The main concern about lionsh is that large numbers of them may be able to eat enough small reef sh (including the juveniles of some species that are important to our sheries) that the ecosystem will be altered in a negative way. The FWC has encouraged the removal and destruction of lionsh by educating shermen and divers about lionsh, by relaxing licensing requirements for anglers taking lionsh, and by encouraging lionsh spearshing derbies. Some of these events have resulted in the capture of hundreds of lionsh, but the reality is that once a marine animal becomes as well established and as widespread as lionsh have, there is virtually nothing that humans can do that will have a signicant impact on the population. If the animals were living in a lake, we’d simply poison everything in the lake and then restock with the species that we want, but that won’t work with creatures in the ocean. In all likelihood, lionsh will be here forever. Lionsh are not the rst exotic species to have become established here, and are not the rst that were feared to have ecosystem-al tering impacts. I can remember when walking catsh arrived in Florida, and they were thought to be game-changers. A few years ago, snakeheads appeared in U.S. waters, and these mean-natured and aggressive creatures so captured our imagination that science ction movies were made featuring them. Remember the concern a few years ago when Asian green mussels were discovered on Flor ida’s West Coast? The exotic creatures which have received the most attention in Florida in recent years are undoubtedly the Burmese pythons which have become established in South Florida, primarily in the Everglades. There are hundreds of organisms sharing our state that are not native here. The list includes killer bees, re ants, feral hogs, German cock roaches (from tropical Asia, actually), Brazilian peppers, melaleuca trees, oscars, peacock bass, monk parakeets, English house sparrows, muscovy ducks, both green and spiny iguanas and many, many more. Ecosystems are naturally resilient, and they change over time as species come and go. Through the fossil record, we know a succes sion of new species has risen while others have become extinct. Yes, extinction is a natural occurrence — just ask a dinosaur or any of the other thousands of species that have vanished from the Earth. Changes in the mix of species in ecosystems is a natural process, and it usually works itself out. Some exotic critters, including hogs, re ants and sparrows, have been so common in Florida for so long that most of the people who encounter them here probably don’t even realize that they’re not native creatures. Look at some of the newly arrived animals mentioned above. When was the last time you heard anyone who sounded worried about walking catsh? They exist quietly and don’t seem to bother anyone. Snakeheads have become so well established in some of Florida’s East Coast fresh waters that there are now shing guides who specialize in guiding clients to trophy snakehead catches. Besides, I’m not sure that a snakehead could be much meaner than a good old Florida mudsh. Green mussels are growing on pilings in Charlotte Harbor along with native mussels, oysters and barnacles. If you look online for information on green mussels, you might nd a few recipes since we’ve discovered that they’re good to eat and there are now people harvesting them, but they’re not getting much other publicity. Pythons? Go to the Everglades and try to nd one. You probably can’t. Yes, they are there, and yes, they do eat native creatures. They’ll prob ably change the natural balance of things, but, media hype aside, the Everglades are not being overrun by the big snakes — and besides, there’s really nothing much we can do about them. Like so many of the other arrivals, they’re here and they aren’t going to leave. Many of the recent arrivals have been trans ported to Florida by humans, but creatures have been showing up in new places since way before humans entered the picture. Critters have been hitchhiking across the oceans on driftwood for millennia, and birds and bugs have long been lofted across continents and seas by wayward wind currents. This is not an endorsement of intentionally transplanting critters, which we should always avoid because, as the old commercial stated, it’s not nice to mess with Mother Nature. Since our plant and animal relocating actions often have consequences far beyond what we antici pate, we should try to avoid such introductions whenever we can. But when it does happen, nature has a way of absorbing the newcomers and accommodating them. We might not be happy with the results (I could do without re ants myself), but life goes on. My prediction: A decade from now, there will be a bunch of lionsh on our oshore reefs living alongside everything else, and we won’t be worrying much about it. After all, nature has managed to survive the antics of a far more destructive non-native species: Humans. Let’s go shing!Capt.

Page 12 March 5, 2015 Photo providedSteve Viveiros caught this redsh while shing from his kayak in the backwaters of the Myakka. We talked last week about all the changes that are coming soon. But before all those things can happen, we have to undergo a transitional period. That’s already underway, and on some days the shing is just incredible. On other days, it can be a tad frustrating to nd sh, because they may not be where you expect them. Let’s take a look at what’s happening now and over the next couple weeks and some ways you can maximize your chances of success. This wasn’t a banner year for sheepshead in the upper Harbor. Although we had a few cold spells, it never stayed chilly long enough to concentrate these sh around El Jobean or the mouth of the Peace River. What few sheepies did move in are now drifting back out, heading to the passes and the nearshore reefs and ledges. Fish are abundant there and should be for a little while at least. Trout are also on the move, making a push to the edges of the ats. As they gather here in loose schools, we should start to see more of the larger sh on a consistent basis. We’ll also see them starting to switch over their food choice. Shrimp are still great and will catch plenty of sh, but more anglers will be using whitebait or small pinsh. Big trout tend to prefer preying on sh. The timing of this switch should be good, as whitebait will start becoming more abundant (in theory, at least). Greenbacks have been here all winter, though not in abundance. Last year, we didn’t have good numbers of whitebait until July. When there are lots of greenies around, many predators become focused on them. Use them if they’re here, but don’t go crazy trying to nd them if they’re not — if the sh aren’t nding lots of them to eat, other baits will probably be more productive. No one really knows what caused last spring’s whitebait deciency, but no one wants to see it repeated. Just like any other sh, they can be overharvested and should be treated like a precious resource, not just free bait. Don’t take more than you need, and let the rest go on the ats, not at the boat ramp. Cobia and small sharks are starting to pop up all over, especially on the edges of the ats and on the nearshore reefs. When a cobia swims past, you need to be ready or you’ll probably miss your shot. I don’t like scrambling for a live bait, so I have a tarpon-class spinning rod rigged with a half-ounce bucktail and a black or purple plastic worm. When Mr. Cobia shows up, I put that in his face. Redsh are becoming more abundant and the average catch is getting bigger. Schools of baitsh will accelerate that trend and also move more sh onto the open ats. Right now, your best bet is to get in close and beat the bushes. If you get hung in the trees, try to retrieve as much of your line as you can. Dangling line is a death trap for aquatic birds. Snook are moving around a lot as they vacate their winter refuges and start their slow-speed migration to the beaches where they’ll spawn this summer. Since both snook and redsh are moving around a lot, it’s smart to check likely spots frequently. Just because there were no sh there three hours ago doesn’t mean they aren’t there now. Of course, the opposite is also true — a spot that was overrun with sh yesterday might hold none today. Groups of sh can show up and disappear with tidal changes, and sometimes even more often. Spanish and king mackerel are moving northward in the Gulf and will be following bait schools close to the beaches and occa sionally even inshore. These fast-swimming sh like to chase their food down, so trolled or quickly reeled spoons, jigs and other sh imitators are ideal. You can also drift with live whitebait (for the Spanish) or blue runners (for the kings) and let them chase their own. It’s not hot yet, but be sure to ice your mack erel or they’ll taste like Fancy Feast. With days in the high 70s and low 80s, it’s feeling a lot like beach weather. While the kids splash and the wife sunbathes, you can enjoy some good shing action. Whiting, sheepshead, pompano, ounder and a few early-arriving snook are showing up along the Gulf shores. The bite is best at rst light and dusk, and the closer you are to the passes the better. Walk out into the rst trough and cast upcurrent (north) more or less parallel to the shore. It’s often surprising how many big predatory sh are lurking just feet from dry sand. Fishing opportunities are showing up all over. This is a great time of year to be an angler in Southwest Florida. No matter how busy you might be, make some time to spend on the water — this really is something you just can’t miss out on.Robert Lugiewicz is the manager of Fishin’ Frank’s Bait & Tackle, located at 4425-D Tamiami Trail in Charlotte Harbor.

in memory of “The Man on the Pier,” Matt Stevens. No, he isn’t dead (as far as I know), but he left us to take a job in Tampa. For those of you who are new to the area, Matt was WaterLine Weekly’s go-to writer for everything you would ever want to know about shore-bound angling (piers, bridges, docks, beaches, etc.). For those of you who followed Matt’s well-written and educa tional column — well, don’t expect that same level of aptitude from me. Matt actually knew how to put pen to paper. With spring just around the corner, and warmer weather and water coming with it, I can’t stop thinking about where I’d like to do my rst quiet, stress-free, alone-with-na ture shing trip of the season. In order to be stress-free, I’ll have to leave my boat at dock (I love my boat, but boat ownership can be quite stressful). Even though I’ll be bringing a friend along with me (just as a safety measure), I plan on shing far enough away from him that I won’t be able to hear a single word he mumbles. Now as far as the “alone with nature” part, well, the only way to truly become one with nature is to become part of it — and the best way to become part of Charlotte Harbor’s nature is to jump right into it with both feet and wade sh. Southwest Florida is loaded with great places to wade sh. If you’re fortunate enough to own a boat, your wade shing options are almost endless. For you guys without seaworthy trans portation, never fear — our area oers many places that you can drive to, park and wade out into the magic waters of our little slice of heaven. There are a few well-known places along the east wall with semi-easy access for anglers on foot. Pineland and Bokeelia both have shore access points for guys who like to wade. For those of you looking to sh in Lemon Bay, don’t overlook Indian Mound Park. It doesn’t look too shy when you’re sitting in the parking lot, but believe me, there are some trophy sh on those ats. If you’re just looking for somewhere a little less known, try looking at our area through the eyes of Google maps or Google Earth you’ll be amazed at some of the spots you’ll nd. What to bring? My rst suggestion would be to bring a friend, just in case something unfortunate happens. Waders are nice but not really needed in our area (unless you decide to wade during our three days of winter). Many people around here wade in just an old pair of sneakers, but it’s really not a good idea because they have a knack for falling apart while you’re in the middle of a bunch of razor-sharp oyster shells. Wading boots are a very smart investment — they’re not all that expensive and could help you avoid a walletbusting trip to the ER. A hat, sunscreen and a couple bottles of water will help keep you cancer-free and hydrated. Other things that will make your trip more enjoyable are extra hooks, oats, leader and lures, a knife, pliers, and a bait bucket or wading basket. Of course, you’ll need a rod and reel. Pretty much any reel in the 2500/3000 size range attached to a 7-foot medium/light rod will be sucient. My personal wade shing rig is a 3000 series Daiwa Ballistic reel on a 7-foot 6-14 or 8-17 Star Stellar Lite rod. I use the Ballistic for wading because it’s sealed to keep water out, and any wade sherman will tell you that your reel is likely to get dunked at some point. I sh the Stellar Lite because it’s tough enough to handle some abuse (like getting bent at an unnatural angle when a hooked redsh runs between your legs) and light enough to carry all day when there’s nowhere to set it down. My reel is spooled with 15-pound PowerPro line and I use a 30-pound uorocarbon leader. This setup will handle pretty much anything a wade sherman might luck into out there. If you’re shing for only trout, you can drop down to 20-pound leader, but if you’re looking for that monster snook then you might (will) want to go to a 40-pound piece of uorocarbon. A live shrimp is hands-down the best bait out there. It’s easy to get, easy to use and everything that swims eats it. If you don’t want to go through the hassle of toting around live bait, articials are the way to go. Soft plastics attached to eighthor quarter-ounce jig heads are always a good choice. Suspending twitch baits like the 17MR MirrOdine or the Sebile Stick Shadd account for many, many big sh each year, as do topwater plugs like the Rapala Skitter Walk and the Zara Spook Jr. When you’re trying a new wading spot, make sure you explore as much of it as possible. Throw your bait to as many shylooking spots as your arm will allow. No pothole or mangrove branch should be passed up. Wading is very dierent from typical boat shing. If you don’t catch a sh right away, you can’t re up the motor and zip over tot he next spot. On foot, you have to become a better sherman because your mobility is limited. Try to remember which areas produced best so the next time you can focus on those rst. Wading is a fun and productive way to catch sh, and it truly will make you feel one with nature. And before I forget, make sure to slide your feet instead of taking regular steps. We call that the stingray shue, and it is a mustlearn for all new wade shermen — unless you enjoy having stingray barbs jabbed into your calf muscle. P.S. — To those of you who know Matt, please don’t tell him I referenced him in my article. That would just let him know I liked his stu and miss reading it, and believe me, that’s not a good thing.

Page 14 March 5, 2015 WaterLine photo by Josh OliveThe Fisheries Forum meeting wasn’t the most exciting thing in the world, but what it’s trying to accomplish is important.Why should you get involved in shery management? Because if you care about our sh, our shing and our environment, it’s the right thing to do. I was among about 70 attendees of the third Charlotte Harbor Fish eries Forum meeting last Thursday evening at Laishley Park in Punta Gorda. It’s a long drive from Englewood, but get involved and be part of the solutions or don’t complain! The forum organizers from the University of Florida and Sea Grant are there to help us identify, prioritize, address and more eectively deal with the issues we decide to work on. They are not there to x everything we consider a shery problem. I believe the term the orga nizers used to describe their contributions was “facilitators.” They are doing a great job. So we didn’t solve all the problems, but we did identify many commonly considered important. I’ll share a few now; when we get our notes back before the next monthly meeting, I’ll go into more detail. We must consider that there are lot of folks using our waterways. How to balance the wants and needs of so many anglers and boaters is more than enough to boggle most attempts to solve problems. Fortunately, many attendees felt strongly that some form of pole-and-troll zones (places where combus tion engines are not allowed to be used) are needed. These could help signicantly, if their placement is well thought-out and boaters follow the rules. We all understood that while the law enforcement agents we have are doing their best, the agencies are terribly understaed. Compliance will depend on peer pressure and outreach education. Clearly, discussions on any such zones need to include safety concerns allowing motor passage when lightning or other emergency conditions dictate speed. Maybe one of these days the county will dig up the study Ralph Allen, Robert Hill, and a bunch of us concerned boaters spent a couple of years compiling about 15 years ago. Unfortunately, politics and an election year frustrated us, and the CCBCC tabled it and then forgot about it. Then the Feds came in and enacted more restrictions because Charlotte County failed to address manatee zones. Anyway, the research was already done and could be easily updated. Another issue was habitat. We have more detrimental algae than attached productive seagrasses around the Charlotte Harbor water shed. Frequently, the agencies measuring grass acreage here rely too much on aerial photos, which can’t distinguish between the valuable sea grasses and destructive algae, so they don’t grasp the dramatic loss of critical seagrass habitats. Many discussed hatcheries and wanted to enhance sh stocks articially. No problem here. I personally worked for decades on a project then titled the Florida Stock Enhance ment Advisory Board, and we established the world-recognized standards and guidelines for shery aquaculture. All we need to do is nd the money and decide when, where, and what size sh we want to stock. Do we want stock enhancement, or do we want put-andtake sheries? There is no marine hatchery in Florida right now. There are folks working hard to establish one in Escambia County, funded by BP oil spill dollars. An Apollo Beach project is also in the works. Concerns about the commercial mullet shery were discussed. I can help describe this issue. The net ban requires seines or castnets to harvest mullet, which created a huge problem. A gillnet allows smaller sh to slip through and most larger sh won’t get their heads stuck in the gilling mesh. Mesh size determines the size of a caught sh. Castnets catch mullet of all sizes. Most of the smaller sh are males and not desired because the female’s roe or eggs are the big money market. The folks more concerned with their paycheck than the resource discard the male sh; some make an eort to return them alive, others don’t care. This is wasteful and results in dead mullet oating up on Gulf beaches in prime tourist season. This huge smelly mess is totally unacceptable. Much of the reason this happens is because it’s so easy to get the state restricted species license required to harvest and sell mullet. So we end up with a lot of amateurs with minimum experience involved in the shery. Plus, a lot of them are from out of town and really couldn’t care less whether our tourists come back next year. The mullet come in all at once because weather concentrates then pushes sh outside of closed areas so they can be caught. The sh houses get overwhelmed with sh — hundreds of thousands of pounds at once. Everything pours in at one time. In many cases, they stop buying the lower-value males, so what are the shermen supposed to do with them? These problems are being addressed locally and at the state level. It will be xed; it’s just at what cost to the commercial shery. Please note that there is not a problem with mullet stocks; just abuse by some so-called part-time commercial shermen and overwhelmed sh houses. Remember this is the biggest money opportunity for the shermen and sh houses, so they must help x this mess or lose neces sary income. We did discuss other topics, but I’m out of space this week. Thank you to the folks involved who helped provide ideas and concerns that outsiders wouldn’t have thought about. I hope to see you all at the next meeting.Capt.

VAN HUBBARD SIZE LIMIT: Min. 12” at fork DAILY BAG LIMIT: 5 per harvester AVERAGE SIZE: 1 to 3 lbs STATE RECORD: 19 lb, 8 oz HABITAT: Hogfish are generally considered to be a reef species. Sometimes they can also be found around wrecks or other structure. Off our coastline, they often live over hard bottom. Almost unknown in inshore waters, these fish are more common offshore in water deeper than 30 feet. LEGAL GEAR: Spears, gigs, hook and line, seine, cast net FOOD VALUE: Considered a delicacy. FISHING METHODS: Hogfish are much more numerous in the Florida Keys and rarely targeted off Southwest Florida, though there are a few well-guarded locations where they are fairly common. Sometimes caught by snapper anglers using shrimp, which are a major part of the hogfish’s diet. Hogs are also a favorite with spearfishermen. In fact, this is one of the few species for which a significant percentage of the harvest is taken by spear. Although sometimes called hog snapper, these fish are actually members of the wrasse family. NOTES: Reef fish rules apply when harvesting. You must use non-stainless steel circle hooks if using natural bait and possess a dehooking device to be used when appropriate.

Sea Tow wants to loan you a life jacket NEED A LOANER?Here’s where to nd the ve Sea Tow Foundation Life jacket loaner stations in Charlotte County: EL JOBEAN BOAT RAMP 4224 El Jobean Road, Port Charlotte HARBOUR HEIGHTS PARK 27420 Voyageur Drive, Punta Gorda PLACIDA PARK 6499 Gasparilla Road, Placida PORT CHARLOTTE BEACH PARK 4500 Harbor Boulevard, Port Charlotte SPRING LAKE PARK 3520 Lakeview Boulevard, Port Charlotte Sea Tow Services International, Inc., the nation’s leading marine assistance provider, and the nonprot Sea Tow Foundation are happy to announce that ve new Sea Tow Foundation life jacket loaner stations are now open at boat ramps in Placida, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda. The Sea Tow Foundation loaner stations, which are stocked with life jackets that boaters may borrow free of charge for a safe and fun day on the water, are made possible through a grant from the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund as administered by the U.S. Coast Guard. “The Sea Tow Foundation is proud to make more than 40 life jackets available to boaters on ve life jacket loaner stands in Charlotte County,” said Gail R. Kulp, C.A.E., Sea Tow Foundation executive director. “Charlotte County and the MAC (Marine Advisory Committee) have been very accommodating and enthusiastic about helping us get this done.” Sea Tow Charlotte Harbor, which serves the Charlotte County boating community, helped to facilitate the life jacket loaner program on the local level. “I think it’s a phenomenal idea,” said Capt. Marcus Shore of Sea Tow Charlotte Harbor. “It’s a win-win for everyone. People usually won’t cancel their trip if they don’t have a life jacket, so this is a last-ditch opportunity to get people prepared to go on the boat. If it saves one life it’s all well worth it.” As life jackets become worn and sun-faded, Capt. Shore plans to replace them and then pass the older ones on to law enforcement for use as backup life jackets. “These new Sea Tow Foundation life jacket loaner stations will help to further the Foundation’s ongoing mission of helping to make boating safer and more enjoyable by encouraging boaters to wear life jackets while on the water,” said Capt. Joseph Frohn hoefer, CEO and Founder of Sea Tow. The Sea Tow Foundation Life Jacket Loaner Program has been funded through grants and private donations since it was started in 2008. Since then, more than 28,500 life jackets have been loaned free to boaters.

Page 16 March 5, 2015 I am currently not on speaking terms with groundhogs from Pennsylvania or WaterLine publishers. I’m not sure who I am more upset with — Punxsutawney Phil for forecasting six more weeks until spring, or Josh Olive for jinxing us with his prediction that winter was over weeks ago. I blame them both because I am tired of this horribly chilly weather we have been having. I can’t wait to say goodbye to the 50and 60-degree days and hello to the 80s and 90s again. I like my weather like I like my music — nothing lower (or earlier) than 70s will do. Of course, with that warmer weather comes the onslaught of little paws pitter-pattering. Spring brings baby season, and we already have quite a few eastern gray squirrel babies at Peace River Wildlife Center. This species is known to breed twice a year, especially when food is plentiful. During a heavy mast year, when the oaks produce many acorns, older Southwest Florida females can produce a second litter in autumn (or in summer, in more northern climes). Most of the squirrels breed in the spring, though, and since our weather is relatively warm (if you ask anyone but me) that process has already begun. Some of our local squirrel populations take advantage of particularly mild winters to breed year-round. The eastern gray squirrel shows evidence of some pretty complex brain activity. He has spatial awareness and memory for the multiple caches of food that he hoards and stores in many locations. He uses both local and distant landmarks to revisit these sites and smell once he gets close enough to them. He will even use deceptive behavior to protect his caches from rivals. If he is being observed when trying to place food in a cache, he will prepare a site as usual (dig a hole in the ground or clear a crevice in a tree), pretend to place the food in it while hiding it in his mouth, and go so far as to cover the bogus cache site. Squirrels are one of a few mammals that can climb down a tree head-rst. They do so by rotating their ankles so that the claws on their rear feet point backwards. Most clawed mammals can climb up a tree and many can descend without jumping, but most, like cats and foxes, must do so backwards. Squirrel nests, or dreys, are large hollow balls composed of leaves and twigs, often lined with moss or feathers. They can be dislodged from their location in the fork of a tree by high winds or tree trimming. If there are babies in a disrupted nest, it’s important to leave the uninjured babies alone. The mother will retrieve them and move them to a safe location and a dierent nest. A squirrel’s gestation period is about 40 days. The average litter size is one to four, but can be up to eight. The young are weaned by 10 weeks and begin to leave the nest a couple weeks later. PRWC has admitted 11 baby squirrels already this season. They are currently in four dierent foster homes, where they will be fed via syringe with special nipples and cared for until they are weaned. At that time, the juvenile squirrels will be returned to PRWC and placed in communal pre-release cages to get them ready for survival in the wild. We antici pate the addition of many more baby squirrels over the next few weeks. Anyone interested in learning how to do mammal home care for PRWC is encouraged to call the oce at 941-637-3830 to schedule training. Our resident eastern gray squirrel, Leonard P. Squigford, is o display right now. He is going through some challenges in his “adolescence.” Born last November, he is now approximately 3 months old and is starting to mature. It is at this age that most people who thought it would be a great idea to raise a wild squirrel as a pet begin to believe perhaps those crazy people at PRWC were right after all. Wild squirrels do not make good pets (and it is illegal to keep them without the proper permits and licenses). Unfortunately, our little Squiggy cannot be released. He has a congenital condition in his brain that aects his balance and coordination. While that portion of his brain does not func tion normally, the rest of his brain works very well. He has been smart enough to take advan tage of the accommodations we have made in his habitat to learn how to feed himself and get around without falling great distances. He does not like the small cage in which he resides during the day while on display at PRWC, though. We have applied for a grant to build him a bigger habitat on site, but for now he lives with one of our caretakers and gets the run of the house when they are home. He could get out of his small cage onsite more often, but many of his handlers are having a dicult time adjusting to his needs. He doesn’t mind being picked up, but he knows his limitations and gets nervous if not held rmly enough. While the natural inclination is for people to handle him gently so as not to hurt him, he seems to realize that his uncoordinated movements could result in a fall if he were to jerk out of someone’s hands because they were holding him too loosely. So, while most people mean well, they frighten him and he, in turn, frightens them. He does not like to be mollycoddled. Like Carol Kane as the Ghost of Christmas Present in Scrooged, he “likes the rough stu,” but understandably few people are ready for 50 shades of gray squirrel. So until we can build him a more appropriate enclosure at PRWC, he will be making only occasional appearances. Peace River Wildlife Center is a nonprot organization, dedicated to the care, preservation and protection of Charlotte County’s native wildlife since 1978. They are open seven days a week year-round, including holidays. Tours are oered from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. PRWC receives no government funding and relies entirely on private donations.

The call with the media came as the advo cacy group this week rolled out what it says is a six-gure TV, radio and online campaign in support of the sugar land purchase. The trust views the deal as the only option immediately available to send and store water from Lake Okeechobee south through the Everglades. The voter-approved constitutional amend ment is expected to generate about $757 million this year for land and water maintenance and preservation — up from around $470 million in the current budget year. Lawmakers will have to divvy up the money during the 60-day regular session that began this week. The Everglades Trust wants lawmakers to designate about $350 million to purchase 46,800 acres, of which 26,100 acres would be used for construction of the Everglades Agricul tural Area reservoir. The state has to exercise the deal by Oct. 12 or Florida would have to buy an additional 157,000 acres to get land for the reservoir.

Page 20 March 5, 2015 Page 20 March 5, 2015 The planning group for Venice Area Birding Association is always in search of new sites. We had heard about Myakka Islands Point, a small park in the Port Charlotte area that might be an interesting place to take our group. To nd out, we needed to go on an exploratory trip with someone who was familiar with the lay of the land. Naturally, we contacted our good friend (and Sarasota County environmental specialist) Nancy Edmondson. Besides being a great birder, she is an excellent source of infor mation regarding plants and our park lands. Myakka Islands Point is a 100-acre preserve. Most of it is in Sarasota County, but a small portion is in Charlotte County. Having good directions is necessary to nd this park. Once there, I think some of us wanted to buy prop erty and live in this beautiful, hidden-away area. Yep, I was one of those people. The day was very gray and overcast, and a damp mist was upon us. We hiked one side of the park on a short trail. We spotted some common birds — mockingbirds, cardinals and blue-gray gnatcatchers. We also saw a icker in the parking lot area. We were hiking along the trail when a great horned owl ew over some of the group. Our eagle eye Deb Johnson thought the owl was ying into a nest. I had been lagging behind, and when I caught up Deb had already found the nest, buried in the crook of a large tree. It was in a dark, wellhidden area. All we could see was one eye and two great horned owl ear tufts sticking up. That was a fun sighting, and it was amazing that Deb could even nd the nest. We headed back to the other side of the parking lot where the main trail was located. By this time, the mist turned into a light rain. As leader of the day, I suggested breaking for brunch and returning when the rain stopped. Everyone liked this idea, so we jumped into our cars. When we nished eating, we headed back to the park to resume our exploratory walk. On occasion, the sun actually tried to peep out from the gray clouds. The trail was muddy in some areas, and I expect parts of it will be underwater during the rainy season — something to remember when incorporating it into our birding eld trips. Across the road, we spotted an eagle just sitting on a post and an American kestrel in the distance. Good thing Tom had his spotting scope as we had to focus in to see that one.

Sue Love and I fell back to see what it was and sighted a beautiful little yellow-throated warbler. We hiked on to see what else this day would bring. We saw that the trail turned into three trails. Nancy picked a trail and onward we went. A small ock of lesser scaup ew overhead. O in the distance we heard a pileated woodpecker. Along the trail and over the brush, we could see the Myakka. We could see it even better when standing on a bench. Maybe someday they will build a boardwalk down to the river so we can scope for ducks. At this time Nancy thought we should head back. We hiked back to the parking lot and once again spotted the icker. I guess he came out to bid us goodbye. As we were leaving, Don had to pull o the main road and get a better view of the Myakka and when he did this we sighted a raft of about 500 lesser scaup. We also added brown pelicans and cormorants to our list. We denitely will be planning a eld trip back to Myakka Islands Point. Although the birding this particular day wasn’t spectacular, it is a beautiful primitive area and well worth another look.Abbie Banks is a member of the Venice Area Birding Association, a group of folks who want to enjoy the environment and nature without the cumbersome politics of an organized group.

Page 22 March 5, 2015 Page 22 March 5, 2015 After I nabbed a stringer of snook a few months ago, my WaterLine editor feared I might transcend my title as a fumbling sherman. Yes sir, Tommyboy was on his way to angling mastery. Soon I would be sucking down martinis with fellow shing legends and forget my humble beginnings. Well, boss, you don’t have to worry. I am still a full-blown ub-master and here’s the proof: Just recently I decided to swim with the shes. Not intention ally, but that’s the way it turned out. Let me set this up for you. It’s a sunny weekday afternoon. Tom (our hero) sticks a few rods in his car. He meanders down State Road 776 to the El Jobean bridge, where supposedly snook are hitting indiscriminately on all forms of soft plastic baits. Rather than walking out on the pier, Tom crosses over to try casting o the seawall. This is an area where the river bottom is paved with hundreds of snapped-o hooks and lines. Leaders and lures wiggle with the weeds. It is a common occurrence to get hung up here, and it takes Tom just a few casts to be common. Tom knows that short hard jerks of his rod are not the chosen method of extrication. That doesn’t stop him from trying. I’ll switch to rst-person narrative. On about the third major tug, my Exude thingie came loose and snapped straight back at my head. Keep in mind that the following events happened rather quickly. I ducked and stepped aside to avoid hooking an eyebrow, but managed to catch my heel on my tackle box. As I started to tumble backwards, both hands went out instinctively behind me to break my fall. And I watched my only rod and reel with a three-digit price tag sink into the drink. OK, up till now I have only been guilty of being a little clumsy and inexperienced. Here’s where stupidity enters the picture. I’m thinking, the water is only 4 feet deep at most. The tide is slack and there’s almost no current. All I am wearing is a pocketed swimsuit and a T-shirt. I gure I’ll just slip in and recover my gear. I put my wallet and my watch on my tackle box (smart move). Then I took o my worthless corroded tennis shoes (a lot less smart). Did you know that most seawalls were not designed for hopping on and o? There are no plastic handles or stairs, so being discreet isn’t easy. There were boats out in front of me, cars going past on the bridge behind me, and a few shermen farther down the wall. I tried to slip seamlessly into the water without drawing attention to myself. But, of course, that’s not what happened. I lost my grip on the wet concrete and splashed into the surprisingly cold water. I somehow ipped and landed on my feet. After recovering my senses (if they can be called that), l grabbed the rod and put it up on the seawall, which was now about a foot above my head. Mission accomplished. Except for one thing — rescuing the dripping dunce. I tried to scurry up the sharp rocks on the bottom, but only managed to shred some skin o my ankles. It hurt, but I barely noticed. I was anxious to get this over quickly with a smidgen of pride remaining. I was just inches away from getting back up onto the wall. I found the highest spot and was preparing for a nal upward lunge, when my right foot slipped down on the remains of what I presume was a broken beer bottle. I let out a little yell — actually, a mued scream. Actually, it wasn’t mued. So much for being discreet. The guys on the seawall noticed my dilemma, dropped their rods and ran down to help. They did not face an easy task. Lifting my carbohydrate-lled body was like trying to pick up a slippery 55-gallon drum. Thankfully, they were strong men with a better sense of balance than mine. My battered body and wounded pride were soon safe on the cement. I thanked them vociferously, but they were replying in another language. I don’t think they understood me. Luckily, the interna tional sound of stupidity crosses all language barriers. Anyway, thank you guys. Medical report: A few bruises and scrapes on my legs. A broken middle ngernail (which has impeded my road-rage response). A circle of minor cuts on my foot with enough blood loss to qualify for a shing purple heart award. And, of course, some ego damage. I went home and terried my wife with a dramatic re-telling of this fable. I limped around for awhile, hoping to garner some visible compassion. My wife does not suer fools lightly (which makes me wonder how we ended up together). But, at least for awhile, she was willing to let me watch old movies and eat potato chips in bed. That means a lot to an action hero like me. They tell me that almost every angler takes dunk in the drink sometime in their shing career, even if they won’t admit it. But they rarely plan the accident ahead of time like I did, so I’m feeling really special. Is the wet look back in style yet? Who you callin’ a drip?

Page 24 March 5, 2015 WHITE SHARK CAUGHT FROM LANDA trio of anglers successfully caught, tagged and released a great white shark from the surf o Panama City Beach last weekend, possibly the rst time that a white shark has been caught from land in the Gulf. Derrick Keeny, Gabriel Smeby and Kyle Register were shing from the beach around 3:15 a.m. Sunday, when the shark, which they described as an adolescent male great white, struck Keeny’s line. When reached by phone, Smeby said it took about 45 minutes to get the 9-foot, 8.5-inch shark to the shore, where they took some photos, attached a tag to the animal and released it back into the water. Marcus Drymon, a marine scientist who specializes in sharks at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, conrmed that the animal in the photos is a white shark. Drymon said he wasn’t aware of a white shark caught from land in the Gulf in recent memory, but cautioned that people should not try to replicate the feat. “It is a federally protected species,” he said. “Obviously he let it go, which is the right call, but even it being out of the water long enough to measure it and take pictures is a problem.”DON’T EAT FUGU LIVERFive men were hospitalized this weekend after eating puersh liver at a restaurant in Japan’s Wakayama prefecture. Puersh, also called blowsh and known as fugu in Japanese, contains deadly toxins in parts of its body. Serving its liver is prohibited under Japan’s food safety law, but some gourmands consider it an exquisite delicacy. According to an ocial at the Wakayama city oce, the ve men pleaded with the restaurant owner to serve them fugu liver. About ve hours after the meal, the diners began showing symptoms of nausea, dizziness and diculty breath ing. All ve were hospitalized but are recovering, the ocial said. Wakayama city shut down the restaurant that served the fugu liver for ve days. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website, the toxins in fugu are more deadly than the poison cyanide and aect a person’s central nervous system. There are no known antidotes for these toxins.GULF OIL DRILLERS KEEP DRILLINGOil producers in the Gulf of Mexico are gearing up for a surge in production this year. Oil output from federal waters is expected to hit 1.55 million barrels per day in 2015, on par with the region’s 2009 historic high, according to government estimates. Production is expected to jump to 1.65 million in 2016. By all appearances, work in the Gulf is ramping up in spite of prices hovering at $50 per barrel, said Sean Shafer, an analyst with Quest Oshore, a Houston oil and gas industry research rm. That’s because drilling in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico is costly and requires years of planning, Shafer said, and the growth in production now is coming from projects that have been in the works for several years. “If I’ve already spent billions of dollars on a project, I’m not going to turn around and say ‘Oil prices are low. I’m not going to spend that last $100 million on it,’” Shafer said. “Even if oil prices were at $20 per barrel, companies would still be going ahead and putting projects into production.” Shafer said companies that have new Gulf of Mexico projects on the drawing board could delay construction until prices recover. That could result in a slowdown in exploration activity in years to come, especially if prices stay low for an extended period, he said.WARMING WATER KILLS CORALSGlobal warming worsens a disease that has almost wiped out Caribbean coral reefs, according to a new study by researchers at the Florida Institute of Technology. In only 40 years, the iconic elkhorn and staghorn corals that have dominated Caribbean reefs for 3.5 million years have declined by more than 90 percent. The main culprit: A disease that causes dead, white bands across the coral. And ocean warming is playing a bigger role in the so-called “white-band” disease than previously thought, the researchers found. “Up until this point, people didn’t have any evidence between a warming temperature and this disease,” said Carly Randall, a doctoral student at Florida Tech and lead author on the study. Randall conducted the research with her adviser, FIT biologist Robert van Woesik. Their study — funded by a $257,000 grant from the National Science Foundation — is published in this month’s issue of Nature Climate Change. The branches of the two coral types they studied grow in the shapes of antlers. Elkhorn and staghorn corals provide foundations for coastal food webs, shoreline protection and erosion prevention. They also create habitat for important commercial and recreational marine life. The Florida Tech study suggests limiting the rate of ocean warming could help these two vital reef building blocks to recover. “It’s possible, if we reduce our emission of greenhouse gases,” van Woesik said.NATURE’S BOWLING BALLSDense clusters of large metal lumps scattered along the seaoor have been discovered by scientists trolling for deep-sea creatures between South America and Africa. The R/V Sonne, a German research ship, was several hundred miles east of Barbados in waters between 16,400 feet and 18,000 feet deep when a mesh net meant to capture marine life instead brought up balls of manganese ore that were bigger than softballs. A remote camera later revealed that the seaoor was littered with these round manganese nodules, some the size of bowling balls. The metal lumps, which most often look like pancakes, are formed of layer upon layer of metal ore that slowly crystallizes around a core. The core may be a fossil, a rock or fragment of another nodule. Scientists think the nodules grow very slowly, padding themselves by less than an inch in a million years. The largest nodules found by the R/V Sonne scientists could be as old as 10 million years. The origin of manganese nodules remains a mystery. Popular ideas include chemical reactions in seawater that are boosted by microbes, similar activity at underwater hot springs and the precipitation of excess metal from seawater.FIVE SIGNS THAT YOUR DIVE BUDDY SECRETLY HATES YOU He spits in your mask for you while you’re wearing it. He gives you the “wait here” signal while you’re still on the boat. He “forgets” to close your dry suit zipper. When you give him the “out of air” signal, he passes you his snorkel.
