AND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000 I know why Steve Thomas enjoys eating at Mama’s Italian Restaurant in Englewood. Some 80 percent of the almost 200 reviews on Trip Advisor rate this 33-year-old family-owned and -operated restaurant as excellent or very good. Maybe that’s why Steve’s neighbor gave him two $50 Mama’s gift certicates in 2012 as a thank-you for watching his home while away for the summer. Steve put them in a safe place. So safe, the 72-year-old Port Charlotte resident forgot where, until they were discovered accidentally last month. However printed on the June 2012 certicates was the bad news: “Valid for one year from date of issue.” Rather than tossing the apparently worthless papers in the trash, Steve remembered something I’d written earlier about Florida gift certicates not expiring. So he took a chance, and tried using one with his next meal. However his server rejected it, pointing out that the certicate had expired in June 2013. I told Steve to go back and try using it again. That’s because since 2007, under an unusually strong Florida law, retail “closedloop” gift certicates or cards — those sold by stores and restaurants and usable with only Florida-issuing merchants — can’t expire or have any post-sale charges or fees. Mama’s certicates had a prohibited expiration date. I contacted Mama’s owner, Paula Recca, making her aware of the situation and the wording of Florida Statute 501.95. It took but a few minutes and Paula responded, thanking me for the information, and saying she was taking “immediate action” to inform her employees. Florida’s Department of Consumer Services enforces this law. It has the ability to impose an administrative ne not to exceed $100 for each violation. Sometime back, a reader contacted me regarding a local nail salon that refused to honor an expired gift certicate. Unlike Recca, the owner maintained her refusal to accept the gift certicate despite my informing her of the law. I advised the reader to contact DCS, which contacted the salon owner, who then immediately agreed to honor it. To le a complaint against a Florida business for not honoring its gift certicate or card, contact DCS at 800-435-7352. Understand, there’s a difference between Florida-issued gift certicates and cards, and cards issued by national nancial insti tutions carrying Visa or MasterCard logos, for example, valid at multiple unafliated merchants accepting them. Federal law governs these “open-loop” gift cards. They can be traditional plastic or electronic, but not paper. These funds can’t expire for ve years. And as long as the card is used at least once during a 12-month period, there can be no fees. However, if unused for that rst year, fees for dormancy, processing or maintenance can be imposed, reducing the card’s value. Reloadable prepaid cards, or those given as part of a reward or a promotion, aren’t regulated. Regardless of the type, treat all gift cards and certicates like cash, using them as quickly as possible. RadioShack — which led for bankruptcy last month with a reported $44 million in outstanding gift cards — has agreed to accept any outstanding gift cards only through today.

What he didn’t plan on was taking a detour from his route along Edgewater Drive to get to Charlotte Sports Park. “Ugh, I tried to take Edgewater, but at Harbor (Boulevard), I got sent to (U.S.) 41, and that’s where the craziness really began,” he said. “It’s brutal; it’s out of control.” And this was for a 10 a.m. T-time, as in tailgate time. By the time most fans tried to make their way to the ballpark for a 1:05 p.m. start, trafc would become even more of a nail-biter. “We took some back roads, and it still messed us up,” said Andy Frost, who lives off Harbor Boulevard and also was doing some pregame tailgating. “The access road on (U.S.) 41 was just packed.” His girlfriend Debby Hendrix said it took about 45 minutes to make the trip, or twice as long as usual. “We knew it was going to be heavy, but we still got stuck,” she said. “And we’re going to be caught in it for two years.”Rays fans take detour from traffic woesBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERDETOUR | 6 Savoring springSUN PHOTO BY GARY ROBERTSMissy and Richard Collard of North Port tailgate at Charlotte Sports Park in Port Charlotte with some hot dogs and burgers, prior to the Tampa Bay Rays-Baltimore Orioles game Thursday afternoon — the ocial start of the Grapefruit League season.

At its Feb. 23 meeting, the City Commission authorized City Attorney Mark Moriarty to le an injunction against the business, located at 1668 Tropicaire Blvd., which he did this week. The city alleges the renters of the property, Joseph and Crystal Neuman, have failed to comply with the city’s land development code by operating a home-based business that sells small-breed puppies including Yorkie North Port suing Estates puppy businessBy SAMANTHA GHOLARSTAFF WRITERPUPPY | 6 READER ADVOCATE David MORRISCOLUMNIST SUN PHOTO BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHResidents along Gulf Boulevard have planted some landscaping in Charlotte County’s right of way.

Featured EventsPAID ADVERTISEMENTSThis week, Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity will begin construction and raise the exterior walls on our Women Build 2015 home. Our Women Build motto is: “We’d rather build it than clean it!” The future homeowner, Latera Hill, was born in Charlotte County, is a military veteran, and is working toward her goal of providing a safe, affordable home for her four children. Women from all over the county will begin hammering away at 9 a.m. Saturday at 511 Fairview Ave., Port Charlotte, to help make Latera’s dream of homeownership a reality. We are thankful to the Charlotte County businesses and individual women who already have made a commitment to raise funds for this special build. Starting last fall, they planned or held fundraisers, such as garage sales, auctions and selling comedy tickets, while others have asked friends to join their team and make a financial contribution. The important part is that we need to reach our house sponsor goal of $50,000. Although the momentum is building, opportunities still exist to be a part of Women Build 2015 and make a difference in our community. Donations from individuals or businesses of any denomination are welcome. Why not join us by helping to raise the additional needed funds so the home can be finalized by Mother’s Day 2015? Taxdeductible donations can be made by check or credit card to Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity. For more information about how you can help with Women Build 2015, contact Charlotte County Habitat at 941639-3162, send an email to devassist@, or visit our website at Won’t you help us give a hand up to Latera and her family?

CULTURAL CENTERELLEN CARDILLO NORTH PORT — Epiphany Health will hold an open house from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. today at its ofce off Toledo Blade Boulevard for anyone interested in learning more about affordable access to medical care. Led by doctors Lee Gross and William Crouch, Epiphany Health is a direct primary care program in North Port that’s suitable for people with high-deductible health plans, or without health insurance, and a good option for young adults or small business owners, according to the company’s brochure. Gross and Crouch are the founding physicians of Epiphany Health, an offspring of Prime Health of North Port, their family practice located at 2975 Bobcat Village Center Road, Suite 100, that began in 2002. Gross said Epiphany Health got its name from an “a-ha” moment he and Crouch had while considering why independent practices like theirs were rapidly disappearing around the region. In summary, fees are $50 per month for an adult and $25 per month for a child, with $10 a month for each additional child in a member family. Patients must be between 5 and 64 years of age and not enrolled in Medicare. The doctors don’t exclude or charge extra for pre-existing conditions, and each person enrolled in the program is entitled to up to 25 ofce visits per year at no additional charge. “We realized we needed to nd ways to provide affordable health care to our patients that didn’t have health insurance, couldn’t afford coverage or had highdeductible health plans that needed affordable access to health care,” Gross said. Ofce manager Anne Horner said the open house will begin at 1 p.m. at the Bobcat Village Center Road ofce, but if a lot of people show up then it will run later than 2 p.m. Horner said the open house will be a chance for the public to meet the physicians, visit the ofce and learn more about the affordable health program.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C The Sun /Friday, March 6, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA — After more than three years of negotiations, financial powerhouse Morgan Stanley finally inked a deal with the city to rent office space downtown. “This has been a long process,” Mayor Carolyn Freeland said. “We are delighted that Morgan Stanley is moving in downtown.” Under the terms of the lease, Morgan Stanley has agreed to rent roughly 2,800 square feet of retail space at $16 per square foot on the ground level of Herald Court Centre’s Building 1. The lease goes into effect March 15, and runs through April 30, 2021. Officials said Morgan Stanley plans to build out and move into the space by Aug. 1. “We are now awaiting their final subcontractor and contractor details to get the work started,” said City Manager Howard Kunik, who also noted that the space first will have to undergo remodeling before Morgan Stanley can move in. A representative from Morgan Stanley couldn’t be reached for comment. After years of trying to rent out vacant space in the publicly owned building to little avail, the city finally is beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel. The recession, coupled with the real estate bust, left the building mostly vacant for years. Currently, a sandwich shop, an athletic retail store and a high-end tattoo shop occupy the ground level of the building. Morgan Stanley would bring occupancy up to just shy of 70 percent. “Maybe this will spur some more activity,” Kunik said. For months, officials for the city’s Community Redevelopment Agency had tossed around the idea of selling the roughly 13,000 square feet of ground-level retail space in Building 1, located next to Florida Gulf Coast University’s Herald Court Centre campus in downtown Punta Gorda. Building 1, which houses The Foot Landing, Otherside Ink and a Subway restaurant, sits along U.S. 41 North between West Olympia Avenue and Herald Court. City officials also have agreed to renew the YMCA’s lease of the Bayfront Center for an additional year. City Council members said they wanted regular updates from Y officials regarding the center’s sailing activities and programs.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comFinancial giant moves into downtown Punta GordaBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITER The forecast calls for a “cloudy weekend” ahead for Southwest Floridans. A cold front is moving in today, according to Charlie Paxton, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, bringing with it a 30 percent chance of showers throughout the weekend. But no heavy rain or thunderstorms are expected. “It just looks like sort of a cloudy weekend, and not a washout,” Paxton said. He added temperatures will remain a few degrees above normal because it’s not a strong front. “It’s unlike other cold fronts that we’ve had,” Paxton said. “We’re getting a good push, but there just isn’t much cold air back behind it, and we’re getting more sunshine nowadays, more hours of daylight, and that keeps temperatures a little bit warmer too.” To emphasize the extra daylight hours, this is the weekend we push clocks forward, losing an hour of sleep early Sunday when 2 a.m. magically becomes 3 a.m., as we enter daylight saving time. That’ll push our gorgeous sunsets an hour forward as well. Although this weekend’s cold front is a weak one, there is still some breezy weather associated with it, such as “winds 10 mph to 15 mph, and maybe some gusts here and there, up to around 20 mph,” Paxton said. Afternoon highs vary slightly each day, with a high of 85 degrees Friday, 81 Saturday, and 80 Sunday, the forecast shows. Lows should be in the lower 60s throughout the weekend.Email: sbrokaw@sun-herald.comCloudy, breezy weather expected this weekendBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITER adno= DAILY SPECIALS $6.99 UP Great Food!

The event will be held 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday at Libby’s Caf and Bar Restaurant, 1917 S. Osprey Ave. in Sarasota. The NASW Public Citizen of the Year Award is presented annually to an individual who, although not a social worker, exemplies the values and ethics of one. Applebee said this week he is humbled at receiving the award. “No one person makes a community successful,” he said, adding it’s a little odd to be receiving the honor. Applebee said he is proud to be working with community agencies to establish common language when screening and working with homeless individuals. These efforts ensure there’s no duplicated efforts and the process is streamlined when helping the homeless. Applebee has served as the director of Homeless Services for the county since October 2013, and is a key champion in advancing local policy and program initiatives to address homelessness, according to the NASW. He has also served as the county’s spokesman on the implementation of Texas-based homeless consultant Dr. Robert Marbut’s 12 recommendations, which included the establishment of two intake portals for families in crisis in Sarasota and North Port, and progress toward a unied ordinance to address homelessness across the county. “We are fortunate to have Wayne’s exceptional leadership skills and dedication in bringing together key partners in our community and in facilitating a candid dialogue and positive changes in how we as a community work to address homelessness on a comprehensive basis,” said county Health and Human Services Director Chuck Henry. “We know that there is still more work to do on this issue, and having Wayne as the point person from the county continues to prove invaluable.” Prior to his appointment as Homeless Services director, Applebee served as the county’s Human Services Policy coordinator. “We (agencies who serve the homeless) are working together on a response to homelessness,” Applebee said this week. “Just to have a piece in creating a process that will help people in most need is positive. We are working on housing portals and homes for homeless families in North Port through Catholic Charities. It’s a very good start.” The Catholic Charities Family Haven homeless intake portal in North Port opens its doors today at the Social Services campus at the corner of Outreach Way and Pan American Boulevard. The facility will serve as an emergency shelter for homeless families in South Sarasota County. The NASW is the largest organization of professional social workers in the world, with more than 150,000 members in 56 chapters nationwide. The Sarasota/Manatee Unit of NASW is one of 18 chapters in the state of Florida and has over 200 members.

Any resident or group located in the county may submit proposed names. The county is set to hold a public hearing April 22 in North Port on designating the Walton Ranch an Environmentally Sensitive Lands Protection Program site. A master plan approved by the county’s Environmentally Sensitive Lands Oversight Committee in December and passed on to county commissioners for approval calls for primitive camping sites, equestrian and interpretative centers, restroom facilities, trails and equestrian camping. The rst phase will focus on getting the park open and ready for use by creating trailhead parking and upgrading ranch roads and trails, according to county staff. Commissioners decided over last summer to keep Walton Ranch, after considering whether to surplus certain portions and sell them. At the time, Commissioner Christine Robinson voted to keep the ranch intact, but wanted a plan put in place to allow the public to have access instead of leaving the land unused except for cattle grazing. At the April meeting, the board will take public input and consider ESLOC’s recommendation for naming the property.Sarasota County seeking name noms for Walton Ranch sitePROVIDED BY SARASOTA COUNTY GOVERNMENTKids pier fishing tournament setPunta Gorda’s Downtown Bait & Tackle Shop at Laishley Park Marina, 120 Laishley Court, will sponsor an inaugural Kids Catch and Release Pier Fishing Tournament for children ages 3 through 12 from 10 a.m. to noon March 14 at the marina.

Our Town Page 6 E/N/C The Sun /Friday, March 6, 2015 FROM PAGE ONE Poo, Maltes, Cavalier spaniel, Havanes and Yorkshire terrier for $900 to $1,200. The business has been operating under a couple of names, including Florida Pups and Sunshine State Pups. The Neumans have sold the animals via six Internet websites — www.nextdaypets. com,, www.sunshinestatepups. com, sunshinestatepuppies, and A third party, Michael Schoeff, the owner of the Tropicaire home, is also named as a defendant. According to the 23-page lawsuit, the Neumans have violated dozens of municipal, state and federal guidelines, including failing to obtain and provide an ofcial veterinary certication, business license, certicates of vaccinations and a U.S. Department of Agriculture license, as well as failure to comply with city zoning laws. The suit also alleges “deception to the public,” saying the Neumans “transported and imported the puppies from Ohio at a low price to resell the puppies to the unsuspecting public for thousands of dollars ... the defendants intentionally concealed that the puppies were transported and imported from Ohio” and not bred in Florida. The couple is also accused of providing false descriptions of the puppies being bred in a loving home or having healthy parents. It also states nes may be assessed up to $10,000 per count if the matter goes to trial and the Neumans are found guilty. A demand for jury trial was submitted within the document. On the Florida Pups website, Crystal Neuman states the following to site visitors: “The health and quality of the puppies are our main and only concern. We make a personal commitment to having a hands-on approach every day, to every puppy, and I believe that it shows.” Reached by phone this week, Crystal said the lawsuit is “not newsworthy” and that they are just a business like everyone else in the city. She added that other media outlets have “twisted our words.” The Neumans have moved the business a couple times since the issue of non-compliance came up in early 2014. The rst violation took place when an unpermitted shed was found in the backyard of a home at 2958 Cartwright Lane, where they were oper ating. Fines were assessed at a September code enforcement hearing that the Neumans paid. They then moved the shed to the Tropicaire rental property, seven miles from the Cartwright address, the suit states. A store operated by the couple sold puppies on U.S. 41 in Sarasota for approximately six months last year. Last week’s special magistrate zoning hearing regarding the shed on Tropicaire led to a continuance until March 26, following the Neumans ling for a special exemption for the shed Feb. 25. North Port Mayor Rhonda DiFranco has been very vocal about her distaste about what she described as a “puppy mill,” pointing out that the business does not hold any licenses required by the USDA or the state for the transpor tation, housing or selling of puppies. The city code was violated, she said, when the business built a shed to house the puppies on the property. “The shed is not permitted. It has electricity hooked up to it ... but no engineer cleared that, I don’t think. You have to have one (engineer) when you have water and electricity,” DiFranco said. “To sell puppies you have to be certied by the USDA. They’re making a lot of money but they are not paying taxes on the business.” DiFranco said that even though it may seem as if the issue is with the Neumans themselves, it is the business that is the problem. “My concern is nothing more than a non-conforming business,” she said. “Everybody thinks for some reason the (North Port) Estates is commercial and it’s not — it’s agricultural zoning. These types of pets are novelty. And you’re breeding these puppies for nothing more than money. So it’s a business and that’s the way we’ve got to look at it.” The mayor hopes the injunction will help deter other business that continue to try to open their doors in the Estates, as well as make the Neumans comply. “The message should get clear — this is not a place you come open up a business because you don’t want to pay the business tax,” she said. “Do what is right, that’s all I ask.” Independent of the lawsuit, the Neumans face a maximum ne of $2,000 if they cannot prove compliance with city codes. During a Feb. 26 hear ing, the magistrate ordered the business to be shut down within 10 days. Retroactive nes of $25 per day start on March 15 if the Neumans do not comply. Email: sgholar@sun-herald.comPUPPYFROM PAGE 1 Stump Pass. Less than an hour into the meeting, Charlotte County Municipal Services District board liaison Dawn Harrison, who is not a voting member, interrupted speakers with their hands raised. She said it was time to close public comment and move the meeting along. Some of the 35 in the audience objected, saying they wanted their voices heard. They continued, voicing concerns about proposed sidewalks, sea turtle-friendly lighting, landscaping costs, street widening, drainage, a bike lane, the current improper striping, ongoing ooding problems and safety issues. Some wanted speed bumps to slow trafc. Several times during their discussion, the ve-member board abandoned Robert’s Rules of Order and Sunshine Law guidelines. One board member’s cellphone rang and she took time to look at her phone. Two members whispered in each other’s ears. Others shared notes and engaged in inaudible conversations, creating frustration for some residents. “They weren’t even sharing the same information during the meeting,” said 25-year resident Judy Avery, who left the three-hour meeting early. “One person had the plan and knew the estimated costs, another had absolutely no clue. They are supposed to be making informed decisions with our money, and instead no one is on the same page.” Members admitted they weren’t given insight on the recent tabulations from other public meetings. They learned Charlotte County Public Works staff received responses from 36 residents who were against and 18 who favored the installation of sidewalks. Most wanted some type of enhanced pathway and additional lighting. John D. Elias, Public Works Maintenance and Operations manager, explained it wasn’t his project, but it was almost too late to be making major changes to the design work — which was halted nearly a month ago — after he inquired if they wanted sidewalks added to the other approved improvements planned for that area. “These changes should have been discussed a long time ago,” he said. “We’ve had public meetings and opportunities for you to tell us what you wanted. We will do what this board directs us to.” Elias said the county likely didn’t have the power to remove illegally planted landscaping. He said county code enforcement might say it only deals with rules regarding private property issues. He said the county doesn’t use taxpayer dollars to cut landscaping the residents planted in the right of way unless it’s encroaching or obstructing trafc. Tara Musselman, projects manager, added if a sidewalk is built, any landscaping on county property would be removed to make way for improvements. After public comment, board members attempted to discuss if the sidewalk was more benecial to the people who live there or “sun birds and tourists.” They struggled with making motions and admitted they didn’t have all the facts needed for some of their decisions. They voted to survey 1,800 residents who live there and ask what improvements, if any, they wanted. Then the board opened the oor again for public comment. However, a question by a resident sparked member Kim Frahn to make a motion about making two streets near Stump Pass one-way-only. During the discussion, Frahn made a second motion. No one explained there was already a motion on the oor. Members ignored the rst motion and voted on his second motion, which failed. Then chair B.J. Galberaith abruptly adjourned the meeting, saying, “I gotta get out of here.” Frahn explained he wasn’t nished. Everyone sat back down. He made another motion to include a feasibility study and costs associated with widening the road as an alternative to adding a sidewalk, which would be included in the survey for residents to decide. The motion passed 5-0. The board will review the surveys when members come back in late spring. Email: SIDEWALKFROM PAGE 1 Hendrix was talking about the road-expansion project that will widen Edgewater Drive to four lanes. As a result, Edgewater Drive was closed this week, between Harbor and Midway boulevards, and will remain shut down until 2017. The lengthy construction period is due to the extensive roadwork being done, plus utility improvements, as well as three bridges being replaced at West Spring Lake, East Spring Lake and the Sunrise Waterway. During this time, motor ists will be directed from Edgewater Drive up to U.S. 41, along several alternate routes. Even before the road project began this week, some locals already noticed a seemingly greater migration of snowbirds than usual, clogging U.S. 41 with cars and congestion. Whether it’s the improving economy or the cold and snow up North, this season’s inux of visitors seems to be unprecedented, said Richard Dolittle of Port Charlotte. “It always gets thick in season, but I thought the trafc was really heavy this year,” he said. “I’ve been here 18 years, and you know the difference.” And these were all fans who had the good foresight, and free time, to arrive at the ballpark well ahead of the rst pitch. What about the hordes of baseball zealots who would be trapped on the road during the nal rush? After slogging their way along Tamiami Trail to get to the stadium on State Road 776, motorists’ reward would be a turn-in lane into the ballpark that was backed up nearly all the way to Flamingo Boulevard.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comDETOURFROM PAGE 1EDGEWATER DRIVE TRAFFIC UPDATETraffic will be detoured around the intersection of Midway Boule vard and Edgewater Drive to allow for utility installation from 7a.m. to 4p.m. Wednesday through March13.

Parents of six children have notified Charlotte County Public Schools that their children will not sit in the tests, and the Sarasota County School District, 10, out of thousands of students in grades three through 10 scheduled to test this week, school officials said. Education officials recommend children take the test due to legal requirements, funding issues and graduation requirements, but there are some alternatives for those who opt out anyway. “A third-grade student may be eligible for promotion to fourth grade for good cause if he or she demonstrates reading proficiency on an alternative test, the SAT-10 or the reading portfolio,” Sarasota district spokesman Scott Ferguson said. High school students can take the SAT, ACT or PERT, as appropriate, in order to graduate, if they don’t take the Grade 10 English Language Arts exam, but they must reach a minimum score required by the Florida Department of Education that has not been set yet. Parents who want their children to opt out of testing should contact their child’s school or school district for more information. CCPS has put together information about the negative effects of opting out at http:// yourcharlotteschools. net/OptOut/index.cfm. Email: sbrokaw@sun-herald.comFew parents choose to opt out of testingBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITERNORTH PORT — Due to a road-widening project on U.S. 41, the city is being required to tear down the North Port gateway monument near Cranberry Boulevard, which cost nearly $55,000 to construct. The Florida Department of Transportation is requiring the city to remove the monument to make room during the construction process, according to city of North Port spokesman Josh Taylor. Several options were explored to save the monument, but city staff found it was more cost-effective to demolish the structure at a price tag of $3,150, Taylor said. It is expected to come down within two weeks. Initially, the city researched options to move the monument, which came back at about $47,000. There also were some additional costs for land preparation and housing of the structure. This option was deemed not feasible, Taylor said. A second option the city explored was to excavate the site and slide the monument to a temporary easement nearby, with the intent to move it back after construction. However, use of the easement could not be negotiated with the property owner, Taylor said. The monument sign, which reads “The City of North Port Welcomes You,” was originally approved by city commissioners in 2008 and built in 2009 at a cost of $54,810. Funding for a new sign will be placed in the 2017 capital improvement budget, Taylor said. Gov. Rick Scott green-lighted the $32.7 million widening project for U.S. 41 last year. The heavily traveled highway will be widened from two to three lanes in each direction, from Enterprise Drive in Murdock north to the Sarasota County/ North Port line, around the Cornelius Boulevard/ Cranberry intersection. U.S. 41 will also be repaved along the roughly 4-mile stretch.Road-widening forces razing of $55K gateway signSTAFF REPORT PHOTO PROVIDED BY THE CITY OF NORTH PORTA road-widening project on U.S. 41 is forcing the city of North Port to demolish this gateway monument near Cranberry Boulevard. ‘Downton Abbey’ Support GroupA “Downton Abbey” Support Group, Book Discussion & More will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. today at the North Port Library’s Juliano Room, 13800 S.

The Sun /Friday, March 6, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. CHARLOTTE — County ofcials have indicated they’ll soon sign off on an economic development incentive for Florida Power & Light, as the company could begin construction later this year on a massive solar farm in the Babcock Ranch area. The incentive essentially would give FPL a tax break for using the county’s land for the $100 million project, but the solar farm would “provide signicant return on investment to the county,” according to the county’s website. Agreeing to the incentive would be the next step toward making the possibility of a huge local solar farm a reality. “It would efciently generate electricity to put into the grid,” said Lucienne Pears, with the Charlotte County Economic Development Ofce. The County Commission briey discussed the incentive for FPL at a pre-agenda meeting Thursday, and plans to approve it at Tuesday’s meeting. The proposed incentive for FPL is 30 percent of the county portion of annual ad valorem taxes paid by the project, but the amount is not to exceed $250,000 per year, or a total of $1.5 million over 10 years. “It’s pretty straightforward,” commissioner Ken Doherty said. “If they show they’re paying their taxes, they’ll get a check.” In mid-December, the Florida Public Service Commission approved a deal allowing FPL to be the sole power utility to serve the sprawling Babcock Ranch community, where 19,000 homes are planned to be developed on roughly 18,000 acres next to the Babcock Ranch Preserve. FPL spokeswoman Alys Daly said Thursday, “Until everything is approved, (the Charlotte farm) is not a done deal,” but, should FPL and the county clear a few more legal hurdles, construction on the local project would begin after the spring and nish sometime next year. On Jan. 26, FPL released details about plans to install at least 1 million solar panels between three new solar power plants in an effort to advance the use of affordable, clean energy in Florida. The three anticipated sites are the one in Charlotte, another in DeSoto County near the state’s rst large-scale solar plant, and the third in Manatee County on the site of an existing FPL natural gas power plant. According to an FPL media release, solar power — even the most economical large-scale installation — generally is not yet cost effective in FPL’s service area, due in part to its higher costs compared to the company’s highly efcient system and low electric rates. But, the sites in Charlotte, DeSoto and Manatee are advantageous because of “built-in advantages, such as the existence of sufcient transmission and substation infrastructure, which reduce the overall cost of building new solar plants.” Each of the new plants is being designed for roughly 74 megawatts of capacity. FPL president and CEO Eric Silagy said in the press release, “These exciting large-scale solar projects — equivalent to roughly 45,000 typical residential rooftop systems — will bring new tax revenue and several hundred new jobs to rural communities we serve and deliver emissions-free power when the sun is shining to our customers across the state.” The commission meets at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the County Administration Building, 18500 Murdock Circle.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comCharlotte inches toward solar farm incentiveBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITER MURDOCK — The Charlotte County Beaches and Shores Advisory Committee found more support Thursday for Manasota Key beach renourishment than it has ever seen. “There’s more people in this room today than I’ve seen in the last four years,” said Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch, who regularly attends the advisory board’s meetings. Of the 48 residents who attended the meeting, 47 raised their hands in favor of nancially supporting and seeing beach renour ishment along the key, at least to the county line. That’s more support than the 50/50 splits of straw vote polls seen in the past. Ed Hill, Englewood Florida Chamber of Commerce executive director, said the chamber is ready to lend its support to Manasota Key. North of the public Englewood Beach, La Coquina, Tamarind Gulf to Bay Condominiums and other Manasota Key property owners are upset over the rate of erosion they are seeing. Commissioner Bill Truex has been hearing from worried residents. “Our beach is gone completely,” Bay Oaks Circle resident Bonnie Littrell wrote in an email to Truex. She described her home as an eighth of a mile south of the Sarasota-Charlotte county line. Erosion has been eating away at the beach in front of her property for several years. Of the emails he received, Truex said, “They have expressed an interest in getting involved and helping to solve this problem.” Michael Poff, vice president of Coastal Engineering Consultants, has worked on the county’s Stump Pass management and beach renourishment projects. He also participated in a joint SarasotaCharlotte Beach Erosion Study in 2002. The ndings of the study needed to be updated, but the bottom line for Manasota Key, Poff said, “You’re in a sediment-deprived system. You do not have enough sand moving into your area to offset the amount of erosion that is occurring. “Now, all of the coastal structures, all of the armory, are exposed and it’s only going to aggravate and accelerate the erosion that’s occurring at your properties,” he said. While Manasota Key sees cycles of accretion and depletion of sand, Poff suggested it was a case of diminishing returns. The county now uses a portion of its tourist, marine, West Coast Inland Navigational District (WCIND) and other funding to pay for Stump Pass dredging. South of the pass, Palm Island property owners on the Gulf agreed to pay into a municipal service benet unit (MSBU) for sand in front of their properties. If Manasota Key supports beach renourishment, county coastal programs project manager Chuck Mopps said staff would work on equable assessment methodologies into which property owners would pay. Should MSBU funding be established, due to permitting and other factors, both Mopps and Poff said the property owners shouldn’t expect sand on their beaches for three or more years. In 2002, Manasota Key property owners in Sarasota County were interested in a joint renourishment project with their Charlotte neighbors. Maybe not so much now. Four or ve years ago, Laird Wreford, Sarasota County Coastal Initiative manager, said Sarasota property owners on Manasota Key were seeing pockets of severe erosion. Since then, sand returned to their beach fronts. “They’re fat and happy,” Wreford quipped. Sarasota County is now hearing worries about pockets of erosion from Gulf property owners north of the public Manasota Beach to Caspersen Beach and on Casey Key.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comSupport seen for Manasota Key sandBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER In the CLASSIFIEDS!

What a great idea. My congratulations to the Gulfcoast Opera for bringing “The Mikado” to our area. And what a production. My daughter and I went to see our favorite Gilbert and Sullivan operetta with diminished expectations; a well-meaning amateur production replete with miscues, dropped lines and the like. What we saw was an exceptional, professional production featuring talented players accompanied by a first-class orchestra. A thoroughly enjoyable evening. Wouldn’t it be great if our area became the home for an annual Gilbert and Sullivan Festival? Worldwide, there are several such fests and they bring thousands of attendees. Why not replicate that here each winter?Cornelius O’Connell North PortEditor: While both conservative, the Republican House leadership will not even discuss the merits of expanding Medicaid, while the Republican Senate is strongly in favor. Gov. Scott has been against, then for and now has distanced himself from taking a position. While hospitals and businesses desperately need the money expansion would bring, the most important question is our compassion for the 800,000 uninsured Floridians. The Senate uses compassion and common sense while the House doesn’t? No health care insurance creates stress that compromises the immune system making you more vulnerable to illness. When very sick, “free” ER visits lack continuity of care and are very costly. Preventative care makes for a healthier society and a stronger work force. Editor: Thanks to one writer for the insightful letter regarding marijuana use and regulation. Editor: It is sad to see how so many of us who have strong feelings and beliefs about politics increasingly feel the need to denigrate the intelligence of others who disagree with us. In this letters-to-the-editor forum, we often see a writer contend that some previous writer is stupid. They angrily suggest that he should get the facts, do the research, wake up!, etc. They often support this dismissive rebuff with a simplistic, often equally challengeable, datum or “truism” proving how dumb it was. This kind of vitriol is an unfortunate social wedge finding its way into emails and Facebook posts among once good friends. I suppose we all lean one way or the other on certain issues, to the right or left, conservative or liberal. But too many of us seem to have become rabid in our disgust at those otherwise good, patriotic Americans who lean the other way. I wonder if our ugly intolerance is a factor in our current government’s dysfunction. Perhaps our leaders can’t work together because they hate each other just as surely as they were elected by us and beholding to our conflicting high-minded ideals. I find it best not to talk politics (or religion) with my friends.Richard Taylor North PortEditor: There are three religions related to Abraham: Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Abraham listened to God, believed “The Promise.” Abraham was obedient; the point of religion, how we relate to God and how we live the promptings we receive. Christ said, that ultimate philosopher, “The essence of religion is to love God and your brother.” He said, “You will know them by their fruits.” No one knows God, although, people proclaim they do. The conclusion of William James, in his study of “Human Nature and Religious Experience,” is that God is real because true belief transforms people’s lives. The Bible is a story, literature, mythology that tries to explain the unexplainable and philosophy written by men. I find it to be inspiring, but I don’t take it literally and as men have progressed other things have been written that are meaningful and inspiring. Tolstoy’s rarely read, “The Kingdom of God Within.” Christ said, “I am the way and the truth.” God is truth; any truth, from whatever place in the universe, (created by God) is the “Word” of God. The history of the Bible is a history of man following and falling away from the truth, a history of false gods created by man. Most religions, promulgated and mutilated by man, are false gods, have nothing to do with “truth.” We all worship the same God; it is our concepts of God that are screwed up. That is why we kill each other. “Beware of the plank in your eye.”Xavier Narutowicz Punta GordaEditor: For the seventh time, the Snowbird College Baseball Classic has chosen Charlotte County as its venue. Over 55 Division 1 and III college teams, 1,500 ballplayers and their families are venturing into our region to play top collegiate baseball at the North and South County sports complexes as well as the Charlotte and North Port high schools and the Harold Avenue Park in Port Charlotte. The organizers work very closely with the county commissioners, the Visitor and Convention Bureau and the Charlotte County Parks and Recreation Department to stage this event. The Snowbird College Baseball Classic began its games at the Charlotte Sports Park on Feb. 13 and will continue through March 21. Organized by Steve Partington and his assistant, Shannon Goldrick, this baseball event has had a very positive and direct impact on local tourism, an impact which only grows with time. The Snowbird started with 23 teams in 2009 and is now hosting over 55 teams from 19 states and the District of Columbia this year. It is estimated that the Classic contributes $9 million to the local economy while attracting more and more teams, players and families to Charlotte County. At long last, Gateway gets its approvalOUR POSITION: A long time coming for this project.After swinging and missing repeatedly during the past decade, a Miami developer nally won approval last week for a housing-ofce complex called Gateway Square and Villas at a high-prole property in Englewood. Neighbors didn’t like it; they haven’t liked any of the numer ous iterations of this project over the years. But the landowner made numerous changes to his proposal. It was well within the parameters of the State Road 776 Corridor Plan, the special land use ordinances that govern development along the highway in Sarasota County. So the decision to rezone the property seemed fair and appropriate. It was time. The property owner, Richard Tasca’s Englewood Ventures, once proposed a heavy mix of commercial, ofce and housing on this property — 11 acres in the shape of a triangle bordered by S.R. 776, Old Englewood Road and the Pine Lakes subdivision. Former plans were poorly received and subsequently shelved during the recession. Five years ago, he tried again, but his rezoning request was rejected by the Sarasota County Commission. When he came back with a revision, that also was rejected. An appeal was led, meetings were held with neighbors and a settlement agreement was approved by the commission on 2011. Still no dice. Last December, the commission again balked but granted a continuance. That gave the developer time to tweak the plan along lines suggested by commissioners. He did. The plan is for 16 paired villas with 32 units and two ofce buildings totaling 16,000 square feet. This time around, Tasca’s planners reduced the number of villas along the southern property line — which borders Twin Lakes — from nine to seven. This left more open space between each building. The villas were also laid out to pair with the homes on the adjoining property. They were restricted to one story. A wall would be built along the border, with landscaping on both sides. All this had been recommended by the commission. In addition, the square footage of a one-story ofce building on the north end of the property was reduced slightly and a two-story building nearby was enlarged. As county staff noted, a wetland in the center of the property would be improved; water runoff also would likely be abated. Neighbors were concerned with both. As for trafc concerns — the Old Englewood Road-S.R. 776 intersection is extremely dicey and a prime spot for a trafc light. However, the last time the state assessed the intersection it did not t the criteria for a light. Commissioners urged county transportation staff to ask for another state study. As much as we’d dislike another light stopping trafc on this busy road, it does seem timely. It’s a dangerous spot, and sooner or later, a light will be installed. Sometime this year, the county also will begin the process to revise the oft-criticized S.R. 776 Corridor Plan. That’s been a long time coming, too. We expect Sarasota County will hold numerous neighborhood workshops — it did the last time, too — and incorporate local input into the nal plan. We only hope the same people who turn up to object when something is proposed will participate in this stage. Maybe this time we’ll get it right. How can we spark some feelings of compassion for these 800,000 “invisible” uninsured Floridians? The House leadership and the governor should meet face to face with 100 uninsured Floridians. Hearing their stories should touch their “hearts” in a way that compassion and kindness would lead to using our tax dollars to evaluate expansion. There is nothing to lose except face? There is much to gain, Putting compassion above ideology would be the kind thing to do. Some 800,000 Floridians will feel better if they have health care. Not even discussing the expansion seems mean-spirited, unkind and totally lacking in compassion for others less well off.Robert F.

Even though the Rays’ spring training games will soon dominate the sports pages, the Rays are a very important and enthusiastic sponsor of the Snowbird Baseball Classic. I’m sure they would want you to check it out, too. Richard Walega Port Charlotte Unfortunately, marijuana users will not limit their activities to home use. As a retired teacher, I’ve seen and “smelled” regular marijuana users who had dropped their children off at school. The kids clothes and food (lunches and snacks) smelled of pot. What about day care workers who take care of your babies and toddlers? How about the neighbor who invites your child over for a play date — will you be willing to ask about their casual marijuana use? How about medical workers, school bus drivers, airline employees, who casually “smoke” to relieve tension — maybe on their lunch hour? What about parent(s) who smoke a joint while the little ones are in the home or car. Ever hear of secondhand smoke and health-related issues? The writer makes an excellent point about making this legally available in pill form and only with a doctor’s recommendation. Using a prescription monitored by a medical doctor that needs to be re-evaluated every 30-90 days will help direct the marijuana to those who actually need it for medical purposes. This will help monitor the “quality” of the marijuana as well. If marijuana does relieve pain issues and helps chronically ill patients maintain successful, pain-reduced lives, then the medical community must step up and be involved to monitor this administration of legal marijuana. Unrestricted, it is a potential nightmare.Elizabeth Dezenski Port Charlotte C Roo A YRRO P4 C. at2f13 winll -gdgewater Dr.CL H-0, $ED FQams, NTRPARKINGnfw^Up/.TflRoM 96MES TRE su 6


The Sun /Friday, March 6, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT I’m getting that deja vu feeling as House Republicans these past several days have failed to alter the public’s perception that they’re incapable of governing. This week marked Episode 2, Season 2 in the series “Homeland Security Face-Off.” Subtitle: “How Republicans Forfeit the White House in 2016.” Notwithstanding Tuesday afternoon’s vote, which funded the Department of Homeland Security through the end of the fiscal year, last week’s high-stakes game of chicken — and this week’s near repeat — provides a lesson for future skirmishes. We’ve seen this all before. House Speaker John Boehner tries to get his conference to act rationally, but the 52 or so whose mission is to act disruptively at any opportunity force the House majority into a “bad deal,” to borrow from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s description of our current negotiations with Iran. If I may pause for just a moment. What a strange juxtaposition to have Netanyahu outline worst-case scenarios should our current proposed deal with Iran go through, effectively freeing Iran, a leading instigator of terrorism in the Middle East, to construct nuclear weapons in 10 years — and our own Congress’ inability to fund Homeland Security amid a dispute over immigration. Back to our more immediate reality and the prosaic if tawdry machinations of government. President Obama, much of the media and the tea party gang share common cause in placing blame for the House’s fumblings on Boehner’s leadership. But comparisons to previous speakers are too facile. Times change. Lest the tea party faction or the Freedom Caucus construct an effigy in my image, allow me to note that, yes, they are doing their people’s bidding. These folks who prefer shutdowns to compromise were elected to stand on principle, no matter the consequences. Given that most are in no danger of being challenged in their home districts, they seem perfectly content to oblige. They may be viewed as villains in Washington but they’re hailed as heroes back home, where hating Beltway insiders is a Campaign Pledge. But principles defended at the expense of pragmatic application is the business of priests. Here on terra firma, if you lose, you lose. You may be re-elected as approval for your zeal as a live-free-or-die, stand-with-Bibi, “Duck Dynasty” patriot, but to what effect if one’s ability to bring about change is neutered in the process? It is fair to note that Boehner hasn’t been able to corral enough votes to move forward with any momentum. In 2013, he essentially caved to his members and allowed them to shut down the government. But it is also true that a leader can’t lead those whose proudest accomplishment is to not follow. Not even Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who is a member of the tea party, has been able to whip his brethren into line. Herding cats? Loading frogs into a wheelbarrow? There is yet no simile or metaphor adequate to describe the moment. How about this: They are like the football player who intercepts a pass, then turns around and runs the ball over the opposing team’s goal line. Insisting that Homeland Security funding be attached to the president’s executive actions to curtail deportations of immigrants here illegally — a predictably losing gamble for Republicans — was a touchdown for the other team. Once again, Democrats were handed the opportunity to point out that Republicans aren’t in town to govern. They’re in town to lose. Last week’s “patch,” as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi described the seven-day continuing resolution to fund Homeland Security, merely set up this week’s repeat. Tuesday morning, Boehner laid it out to his conference: Either pass a clean bill or pass another CR and still lose. Apparently, he was successful in selling the only real deal available. The House passed the clean Senate bill 257-167. Whether this solution changes public perception sufficiently — and whether it can hold through the Republican primary process — is yet to be seen. In the meantime, what we do know is that a Republican can’t win the presidency if the party more widely is considered not ready for prime time. Without the 40 per cent of the Hispanic vote widely considered necessary to win — and enough independents and moderates who are turned off by the more-righteous-thanthou Freedom Caucus — a Republican doesn’t stand a chance. Kathleen Parker is a Washington Post columnist. Readers may reach her at kathleenparker@ GOP: A tragedy in 52 acts Kathleen Parker To someone who has watched many “scandals” surrounding Hillary Rodham Clinton evaporate into the Washington mist — even when Pulitzer Prize-winning pundits predicted that she would end up in prison! — the current furor over her emails hardly seems earthshaking. It isn’t unreasonable to require public officials to conduct all public business on government email accounts, but there was no such ironclad rule when Clinton became secretary of state. In hindsight, it might have been better for her and the public if she had done so. Yet many prominent people, both in and out of government, have preferred private email, in the belief that those accounts provide stronger encryption and safeguards against hacking. So far, the former secretary of state doesn’t appear to have breached security or violated any federal record-keeping statutes, although those laws were tightened both before and after she left office. She didn’t use her personal email for classified materials, according to the State Department. Certainly Clinton wasn’t the first federal official or Cabinet officer to use a personal email account for both personal and official business, as most news outlets have acknowledged by now — indeed, every secretary of state who sent emails had used a personal account until John Kerry succeeded Clinton in 2013. As for the issue of ar chiving Clinton’s emails, which is required by federal regulations and law, the Washington Post headlined that she violated an Obama administration edict by using her own account. But that was still “permissible,” according to the Post, “if all emails relating to government business were turned over and archived by the State Department.” So did Clinton — or more to the point, someone with line responsibility for such bureaucratic housekeeping — observe that rule? Last year, the State Department requested that all of the living former secretaries of state turn over relevant emails for its archives. To date, only one of them has complied: Hillary Clinton. Her aides provided more than 50,000 emails to the government — and sent about 300 to the House Select Committee that is forever investigating Benghazi. Angry Republicans on that committee, plainly frustrated by years of failure to find any evidence that incriminates Clinton or President Obama in the loony conspiracy theories cherished by tea party Republicans, are behind the email stories first published by The New York Times. In fact, Clinton’s use of a private account has been publicly known for more than two years — but that fact didn’t seem to trouble the Republicans until now, as she prepares to run for president. And today the House Government Operations Committee, chaired by Rep. Jason Chaffetz — a right-wing extremist whose own business card lists his Gmail address — is poised to take up the “investigation.” This unappetizing scenario is most reminiscent of the bad old days, when a House committee chair “investigated” the tragic suicide of White House aide Vince Foster by pumping several pistol rounds into a watermelon in his backyard. Back then, various Senate and House committees chaired by Republicans endlessly “investigated” Whitewater, the FBI files, and other putatively scandalous matters, at a cost of tens of millions of dollars, with no purpose beyond selective, salacious leaks to reporters at the top newspapers and networks. Then everybody would feign outrage for a day or two, and the latest whatever would pass into oblivion. Someone should ask the Republicans and their media enablers what they expect to find now. Is there any evidence of actual wrongdoing by Clinton and her staff, or merely the familiar stink of insinuation? Will they seek the testimony of former Bush aide Karl Rove — who misplaced thousands of White House emails on an address during a criminal probe — or any of the other ex-officials, like Colin Powell, who have used private email addresses to conduct public business over the past decade or so? Or will they simply continue a partisan hunting expe dition with taxpayer millions, which is what they seem to believe they were elected to do instead of governing?

The Sun /Friday, March 6, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 11 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS CHARLOTTE COUNTY — Another person has died as a result of the ninecar pileup on Interstate 75 Tuesday afternoon. The Florida Highway Patrol conrmed Charles Isenhower, 77, of Lebanon, Ind., succumbed to his injuries. Isenhower was driving a Chevrolet Equinox when he was rear-ended by a dump truck driver who failed to notice trafc stopped on the northbound side of the I-75 bridge over the Peace River, an FHP report shows. Isenhower’s wife Patricia, 72, died shortly after the wreck, which involved seven other vehicles. The Isenhowers were the only two people in the Equinox. Five other people suffered minor injuries in the accident. The dump truck driver — Robert Long, 48, of Fort Myers — was cited for careless driving.3 charges for man in gun incident near schoolNORTH PORT — A 74-year-old man was charged with three counts of aggravated assault on Wednesday after he allegedly pointed his gun at three parents who were walking to pick up their children after school outside Toledo Blade Elementary, according to a North Port Police report. Gerald Lee Paugh, of the 1000 block of Geranium Avenue, North Port, lives across the street from the elementary school, located at 1201 Geranium Ave., and was standing in his driveway during school pickup around 3 p.m., the report states. According to the report, one of the victims, a 33-year-old father, was upset at Paugh because the day before, one of his three children became entangled in shing line that was strung from a “no parking” sign in Paugh’s yard to his mailbox. The victim said one of his kids became snared in the line because they had to walk around Paugh’s mailbox in order to avoid being hit by a car. The report states the father yelled to Paugh, “If any of these kids get hurt, it’s going to be on you!” The man said Paugh then pulled out a gun, which had a yellow handle, and said, “I have proof you’re on my property, and I will shoot.” A second victim, who was walking with the man to pick up her own kids, told authorities she saw Paugh pull a yellow-handled revolver from his hip and point it at her, the father and a third victim who was walking with them. According to the report, the second victim said that Paugh said, “Come up here; I will (expletive) kill you.” The third victim said the father yelled at Paugh about the shing line from the day before because all three of the victims thought the shing line that was placed within the city right of way was intended to trip the children coming out of school. The report states the third victim said they weren’t even on Paugh’s property, but talking to him from the street. Authorities said when they arrived, Paugh’s gun was on his kitchen table and it was loaded with one round in the chamber. Also, a police ofcer who wasn’t on duty was notied by one of the victims of the incident, and that ofcer told responding ofcers that he saw Paugh cutting shing line from his mailbox before they arrived. That ofcer did not see Paugh with a gun, the report states. No injuries were reported, and authorities said it was “apparent” that parents’ issues with Paugh were ongoing because parents park on the city right of way in front of Paugh’s yard while waiting to pick up their children from school. Sarasota County School District spokesman Scott Ferguson said the elementary school went into “code red” lockdown around 3:10 p.m. Wednesday as a precaution due to the incident, which delayed dismissal by ve to seven minutes. Paugh is being held at the Sarasota County Jail without bond.Cops: Man damages 4 businessesPORT CHARLOTTE — A local man has been blamed for $44,000 worth of damage to pumps at a local gas station, along with causing mischief at a few other local businesses. Authorities were dispatched to the Pik N’ Run at the corner of U.S. 41 and Olean Boulevard around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, and found a man wearing a hoodie and sweat pants swinging from the ropes of the ag pole in front of the gas station, a Charlotte County Sheriff’s report shows. The man — later identied as Steven Donald Harper, 23 — ran away, but was stopped in a nearby parking lot, questioned, then arrested. Deputies noted that all 22 gas pumps at the Pik N’ Run were damaged, as was a drive-thru sign and screen at a nearby Wendy’s. A witness told authorities he saw Harper do it with what appeared to be a brick. Later that morning, investigators were called to Olean Plaza after an employee reported nding three light xtures broken. And a deputy found an irrigation control panel ruined at a Bank of America close to the crime scenes. Evidence linked Harper to those incidents too, the sheriff’s report shows. In all, Harper, whose address is listed as the Knights Inn on U.S. 41 in Port Charlotte, is facing four counts of felony criminal mischief. He was held at the Charlotte County Jail Thursday on $12,000 bond. There is no indication in the report about why Harper might have committed the mischief, or why he was swinging from a ag pole at a gas station in the middle of the night when deputies found him.Report: Man kicked out, returns home, chokes victimVENICE — A Venice man who had been kicked out of his home returned Wednesday for his belongings, and then was arrested by police for choking the 43-year-old victim who currently lives there, authorities said. Drew J. Marzen, 22, of Venice, was charged with battery by strangulation after he came back to his old residence to pick up his things around 6 p.m., and a verbal argument with the victim “quickly escalated,” according to a Sarasota County Sheriff’s report. The victim said Marzen jumped on her and grabbed her by the neck. The victim said she lost consciousness several times while being choked, according to the report, and she thinks she was hit in the face also, because she had a large bruise on her forehead. Authorities said there were several marks on her neck. The victim also reportedly said Marzen was holding a kitchen knife while he choked and hit her, but authorities said there were small lacerations on the victim’s arm that were more consistent with scratch marks. According to the report, Marzen changed his story numerous times when speaking with police and said he “possibly” scratched the victim while holding her down. The report also states the victim originally called law enforcement on Tuesday and requested that Marzen leave the residence. Marzen is being held at the Sarasota County Jail without bond.Report: Police bust area theft ringAn investigation into some stolen vehicles has turned into an investigation involving cases all over Southwest Florida.

And a summer decision from the justices leaves little time for backup planning. Many governors, especially Republicans, want the federal government to craft a contingency plan and at least one governor — in Pennsylvania — is pursuing a state exchange, which would make sure his state was able to receive the subsidy. During oral arguments Wednesday, the justices appeared divided in the latest challenge to President Barack Obama’s law. Opponents of the law argued that only residents in about a dozen states that set up their own insurance markets can get federal subsidies to help pay their premiums. The administration says the law provides for subsidies in all 50 states. The case sets up an intriguing political backdrop for states like Florida and Texas, both led by Republican governors staunchly opposed to the law.

Animal rights groups took credit for generating the public concern that forced the company to announce its pachyderm retirement plan on Thursday. But Ringling Bros.’ owners described it as the bittersweet result of years of internal family discussions. “It was a decision 145 years in the making,” said Juliette Feld, referring to P.T. Barnum’s introduction of animals to his “traveling menagerie” in 1870. Elephants have symbolized this circus since Barnum brought an Asian elephant named Jumbo to America in 1882.

WASHINGTON — Iran’s growing inuence in Iraq is setting off alarm bells, and nowhere is the problem starker than in the high-stakes battle for Tikrit. It marks a crucial ght in the bigger war to expel the Islamic State group from Iraq, and yet Iran and the Shiite militias it empowers — not the U.S. — are leading the charge. This is both a political and military dilemma for the Obama administration, which is under heavy criticism for negotiating with Iran over limits on its nuclear program. Iran, meanwhile, is asserting itself in a divided Iraq like never before. The battle for Tikrit raises the question: Who is really running this war? Iraq? The U.S.? Iran? Defense Secretary Ash Carter, under questioning from Sen. John McCain this week, acknowledged his concern when McCain asked if it alarms him that Iran “has basically taken over the ght.” “It does. It does,” Carter replied, adding, “We’re watching it very closely.” Watching, but not participating.

It’s hardly a surprise any more to read that consuming a diet rich in sh and chicken, fruits and vegetables, nuts, whole grains, olive oil and legumes — a Mediterranean diet — is a healthy lifestyle choice. But a new study makes clear that whatever one’s age, gender or health status, sticking with the Mediterranean diet is the single most powerful step a person can take to drive down his or her heart disease risk. In a 10-year study of 2,583 Greek adults, those who adhered most closely to the Mediterranean diet were near ly half as likely as those who followed it least to develop, or die from, heart disease. The latest research is to be presented next week at the American College of Cardiology’s annual scientic session in San Diego. The study population ranged in age from 18 to 89, and all were free of cardiovascular disease when enrolled in 2001-02. At the outset and after 10 years, the researchers solicited detailed accounts of participants’ consumption of 18 different food groups, and assigned each subject a rating between 1 and 55 reecting his or her adherence to the principles of a Mediterranean diet. Among men, 20 percent developed or died of cardiovascular disease, and 12 percent of women died during the 10year period. Being male, older, having diabetes or having high levels of C-reactive proteins — a measure of inammation — were the strongest predictors of who would be in that group.Mediterranean diet nearly halves heart disease riskBy MELISSA HEALYLOS ANGELES TIMES WRITERDIET | 4 '7 1 W "rru1(c,lip," . a7' YYY111i;l trG \`v 't'C 1Ag.Al,mopuw i


Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Friday, March 6, 2015 NATIONAL NEWS NEW YORK (AP) — A Delta plane from Atlanta skidded off a runway at LaGuardia Airport while landing during a snowstorm Thursday and crashed through a chain-link fence, its nose coming to rest perilously close to the icy waters of a bay. The nose was leaning on a berm that separates the runway from Flushing Bay. Passengers saddled with bags and bundled up in heavy coats and scarves were helped down from the wing and onto the snowy pavement, just feet from the water. Everyone was silent as the plane slid, but some children started crying after it came to a stop, passengers said. “If we wouldn’t have hit the snowbank, we’d be in the water right now,” said Charles Runels, a passenger from Atlanta. Flight 1086, carrying 125 passengers and ve crew members, veered off the runway at around 11:10 a.m., authorities said. Six people had non-life-threatening injuries, and at least two were taken to the hospital, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs the airport. Malcolm Duckett, a marketing executive from Georgia, said passengers were told they had to exit over the wing because the rear door was too close to the water. “We landed pretty hard. I could see the damage to the wing. It was pretty torn up,” he said. “It was riding across a fence for 10 seconds, and once we landed, we landed in the snow.” Duckett, who was seated near the left wing, said he could see the damaged wing. He climbed onto the right wing and then slid along it until reghters helped him get down. “As we walked across the runway, it was covered with so much snow that I was wondering who decided it was safe to land here,” said Jane Kaufman, of Gainesville, Fla., who was visiting her daughter in Brooklyn. Passengers trudged through the snow in an orderly line after climbing off the plane. The airport runway was plowed and two other pilots reported good braking conditions minutes before the Delta plane landed, said Patrick Foye, the Port Authority’s executive director. Foye says the pilot did everything he could to slow the aircraft. Both runways closed after the crash, but one reopened at 2 p.m. The aircraft was leaking a gallon of fuel a minute after the crash, but the leak has since stopped, Foye said.Plane skids off runway at LaGuardia Airport AP PHOTOA plane that skidded o the runway at LaGuardia Airport hangs over the edge of the runway in New York, Thursday. | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE NATIONMichael Brown’s parents plan civil lawsuitST. LOUIS (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) — The parents of Michael Brown plan to le a wrongfuldeath lawsuit in the near future, their attorneys announced Thursday morning. They will sue the city of Ferguson and Darren Wilson, the Ferguson policeman who fatally shot their son. That news comes one day after the U.S. Justice Department released a report of its investigation into the fatal shooting of Brown by Wilson on Aug. 9. The report concluded that it was reasonable for Ofcer Wilson to be afraid of Brown in their encounter last summer, and thus the ofcer cannot be prosecuted for killing the unarmed 18-year-old.Jurors in Jodi Arias case: We were 11-1 for death penaltyPHOENIX (AP) — Jurors who deadlocked on the punishment for convicted murderer Jodi Arias, spar ing her life, said Thursday that they were 11-1 in favor of the death penalty and tried unsuccessfully to get the lone holdout kicked off the panel. It marked the second time a jury failed to reach a unanimous decision on Arias’ sentence — a disappointment for prosecutors who argued for the death penalty during a nearly seven-year legal battle. It means the judge will sentence Arias on April 13 to either life in prison or a life term with the possibility of release after 25 years. Most of the 14 jurors who talked to reporters, including at least one alternate and one woman removed from the panel earlier, said they believed the holdout was biased and not inclined to give the death penalty. One male juror said he was angry, saying the female holdout indicated that the death penalty would be a form of revenge. The woman did not talk to reporters, and none of the 14 jurors who did would give their names.Cardinal Egan, retired New York archbishop, dies at age 82NEW YORK (AP) — Cardinal Edward Egan, the former archbishop of New York who oversaw a broad and sometimes unpopular nancial over haul of the archdiocese and played a prominent role in the city after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, died Thursday. He was 82. Egan died of cardiac arrest at a New York hospital, the archdiocese announced. He had survived polio as a child, which affected his health as an adult, and also used a pacemaker. On Sept. 11, then Mayor Rudolph Giuliani called Egan for help, and the cardinal spent the day anointing the dead, distributing rosaries to workers as they searched, mostly in vain, for survivors. Egan later presided over funerals for the victims, sometimes three a day.Late winter storm blankets South, NortheastPHILADELPHIA (AP) — A late winter storm blanketed the Northeast on Thursday after zipping across much of the South, leaving hundreds of drivers stranded on highways in Kentucky and thousands without power in West Virginia. By midday Thursday, a strong cold front moving across the eastern U.S. had dumped more than 20 inches of snow on parts of Kentucky, and conditions worsened in the Northeast as snow started to pile up, reaching nearly 9.5 inches and counting in the northern Maryland community of Millers by midafternoon. The massive snow in Kentucky left hundreds of people stranded on two major highways and National Guard members delivering them food or driving them to warming centers. Schools, government ofces and legislatures in the South and Northeast were shut down for what could be one of the last snow days at the end of a winter that’s been brutal for much of the country.Harrison Ford reported engine failure before plane crashLOS ANGELES (AP) — Harrison Ford reported engine failure shortly after takeoff and told air-trafc controllers he was returning to the airport before crash-landing his vintage plane on a nearby golf course in Los Angeles. In a communication with the tower at Santa Monica Airport, the pilot said he was having engine failure Thursday after noon and was making an “immediate return.” That’s according to a recording made public on the website The plane went down on the golf course soon after. Ford was the only person on board. Fire ofcials say he had moderate injuries when he was taken by ambulance to a hospital. Fire and police ofcials haven’t publicly conrmed the pilot’s identity. However, an ofcial familiar with the crash says it was Ford. The ofcial spoke only condition of anonymity because of privacy restrictions.Odd circumstances surround gold heist on Interstate 95WILSON, N.C. (AP) — Details emerging from the theft of nearly $5 million in gold bars on an interstate highway indicate the heist was carefully planned and raise questions about who was involved other than the three armed robbers. The robbers pulled up almost immediately after the drivers made an unscheduled stop on a dark stretch of highway in North Carolina, according to a warrant. When the crew got out of the truck, they left their rearms behind in violation of their employer’s security rules, the sheriff said. And while the workers told authorities they had to pull over because strong gasoline fumes were making at least one of them sick, a mechanic found no problems with the truck. The circumstances led one detective to write that the heist on Sunday “could be an inside job,” though the sheriff declined to commit to that theory during a news conference Wednesday. One thing was clear, though: The heist was targeted and planned, down to the orange trafc cones the robbers put out while they unloaded 275 pounds of gold worth $4.8 million. Asked to put the case into context, Wilson County Sheriff Calvin Woodard, who’s a native of the area, remarked: “It’s different.”Maker of device in ‘superbug’ outbreak lacked FDA clearanceWASHINGTON (AP) — The manufacturer of a medical instrument at the center of a recent “superbug” outbreak in Los Angeles did not receive federal clearance to sell an updated version of the device, according to ofcials from the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA conrmed that Olympus Corp. did not seek agency clearance for the redesign of its specialized endoscope, which it began selling in 2010. FDA clearance is required for all substantive updates to medical devices sold in the U.S. Despite the lack of clearance, the FDA said doctors should continue using the device because it’s not clear that a federal review would have prevented the recent infections in patients.Utah LGBT anti-discrimination bill passes 1st testSALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A landmark Utah proposal protecting gay and trans gender individuals passed its rst test at the state Legislature on Thursday when a Republicancontrolled Senate committee offered its unanimous and at times emotional support of the measure. Todd Weiler, a Republican senator from Woods Cross, said he comes from “a conservative, Mormon background” but he’s met many transgender individuals, including one in his neighborhood who grew up with his son. “I don’t understand those things,” Weiler said, “I understand that those people are different than I am, and that they have rights, and I am 100 per cent convinced that they should be protected.” Weiler, who struggled to stay composed, said the bill would send a message to young people struggling with their identity and “struggling with whether they want to stay alive.” The bill, which has earned the rare stamp of approval from the Utahbased Mormon church, bars discrimination against gay and transgender individuals while protecting the rights of religious groups and individuals.Largest US banks all pass latest Fed ‘stress tests’WASHINGTON (AP) — All of the nation’s 31 largest banks are adequately fortied to withstand a severe U.S. and global recession and keep lending, the Federal Reserve said Thursday. Results of the Fed’s annual “stress tests” show that as a group, the 31 banks are stronger than at any time since the 2008 nancial crisis struck, thanks to a steadily recovering economy. The results build on positive outcomes from last year’s tests. Some industry analysts say the most critical tests for the industry will come next week. That’s when the Fed will announce whether it’s approved each bank’s request, if one has been made, to raise dividends or repurchase shares. Those results will be based on how each bank would fare in a severe recession if it took such steps. “This week’s tests are a more modest standard than what we will get next week, ” said Cayetano Carrasco-Gea, senior director at Moody’s Analytics. “We will see a few banks fail next week.” adno=50480323 RI1+gGS, ,,.'Allft'rIIl1!

(AP) — An ecstatic New Mexico couple who got engaged on top of Sandia Peak had to curtail their celebrations after getting stuck for hours because of high winds. KOB-TV in Albuquerque reports that Arthur Edelhoff and Lindsay Duncan of Corrales took the tram up the mountaintop early Sunday evening. After taking happy engagement photos, the couple were told that they had to wait for the 40-mph wind to die down before they could return. Jay Blackwood, the assistant manager of the Sandia Peak Tram, says around 140 people were stranded for about four hours. Edelhoff says they didn’t get off the mountain until 10:30 p.m.ODD NEWS Couple gets engaged, then stranded on mountaintopThose in the top third of subjects in terms of Mediterranean diet adher ence were 47 percent less likely than those in the bottom third to be among those who developed cardiovascular disease. With each one-point increase in Mediterraneandiet-adherence score, a subject’s average risk of developing cardiovascular disease dropped by 3 percent. And the protective effects of eating like a traditional Greek were widely applicable too. After researchers took into account risk factors such as gender, age, family history of cardiovascular disease, smoking, body-mass index, education levels, hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol, the protective powers of the Mediterranean diet continued to show strongly. Study coauthor Ekavi Georgousopoulou of Harokopio University in Athens touted the Mediterranean diet as a heart disease prevention program that is not only powerful but available to all.

Instead, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey told McCain’s committee, about twothirds of the Iraqi forces ghting for Tikrit are Shiite militias supported by Iran, which also has provided artillery and other resources. The rest are regular Iraqi soldiers. The issue is the two major powers — the U.S. and Iran — might be running parallel campaigns with different goals. Both want the Islamic State group out of Iraq, but the U.S. hopes for an inclusive Iraqi government that includes Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds. Iran, the major Shiite power in the region, would prefer a largely Shiite Iraq. The Iranian involvement has also raised concerns among key members of the U.S. coalition ghting the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria. “What is happening in Tikrit is exactly what we are worried about. Iran is taking over the country,” Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal said at a news conference on Thursday in Riyadh with Secretary of State John Kerry. Kerry, however, said he was glad to see the Iraqi government taking the lead, even if it meant Iranian involvement. “This was put together by the Iraqis, formulated by the Iraqis, executed by the Iraqis, and that’s the best thing all of us could, frankly, ask for,” Kerry said. “So we take it the way it is and we’ll hope for the best results and move from there.” Tikrit is ripe with irony. It is the birthplace of Saddam Hussein, the former president who led Iraq into a devastating 1980-88 war with Iran. Now Baghdad has embraced Iranian military leadership in the ght for Tikrit, to the exclusion of the Americans, who invaded Iraq 12 years ago this month to topple Saddam and lost thousands of lives trying to ensure a stable, multi-sectarian and independent Iraq. Stephen Biddle, a professor of political science and international affairs at George Washington University and an occasional consultant to U.S. commanders, said the Iraqis see the Iranians as a convenient alternative to the Americans as Washington pushes Iraq to be more accepting of Sunni political interests. “So if we push them too hard they can just go to the Iranians,” Biddle said. “The Tikrit offensive is a terric example of that in practice.”IRANFROM PAGE 1 animal rights activists weren’t responsible. “We’re not reacting to our critics; we’re creating the greatest resource for the preservation of the Asian elephant,” Kenneth Feld told The Associated Press as he broke the news that the last 13 performing elephants will retire by 2018, joining 29 other pachyderms at the company’s 200-acre Center for Elephant Conservation in central Florida. But Feld acknowledged that because so many cities and counties have passed “anti-circus” and anti-elephant” ordinances, it’s difcult to organize tours of three traveling circuses to 115 cities each year. Fighting legislation in each jurisdiction is expensive, he said. “All of the resources used to ght these things can be put toward the elephants,” Feld said. Los Angeles prohibited the use of bull-hooks by elephant trainers and handlers last April. Oakland, Calif., did likewise in December, banning the devices used to keep elephants in control. Last month, the city of Asheville, N.C., nixed wild or exotic animals from performing in the municipally owned, 7,600-seat U.S. Cellular Center. “There’s been somewhat of a mood shift among our consumers,” said Alana Feld, the company’s exec utive vice president. “A lot of people aren’t comfortable with us touring with our elephants.” Ingrid E. Newkirk, the president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, says her group made that happen. “For 35 years PETA has protested Ringling Bros.’ cruelty to elephants,” she wrote in a statement. “We know extreme abuse to these majestic animals occurs every single day, so if Ringling is really telling the truth about ending this horror, it will be a day to pop the champagne corks, and rejoice. If the decision is serious, then the circus needs to do it NOW.” Carol Bradley, the author of the book “Last Chain on Billie: How One Extraordinary Elephant Escaped the Big Top,” which is about a non-Ringling circus elephant, said she believes the Feld family “realized it was a losing PR battle.” “This is an enormous, earth-moving decision,” she said. “When I heard the news, my jaw hit the oor. I never thought they’d change their minds about this.”ELEPHANTFROM PAGE 1 anger to the ballot box if they lose coverage. Florida has more people on the health care plan than any other state and most of the 1.6 million people receive the subsidy, along with many of Texas’ 1.2 million enrollees. Austin, Texas, resident Donna Allen, a part-time community college student who also runs a house cleaning ser vice, worries what will happen if she loses her $400 monthly tax credit. She pays $85 for health insurance she bought on the federal exchange. “We just don’t make the money rich people do, so what am I supposed to do, die? Disappear?” Allen said. Florida Gov. Rick Scott echoed the sentiments of many Republican governors when he said Wednesday that the White House should outline what actions it would take under any outcome in the court case. He and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott have not said what steps they would take if the burden fell back to the states. “In the absence of leadership from the president, the new Republican-led Congress should quickly propose solutions to undo the federal exchange monopoly,” Scott said in a statement. The “let the federal government gure it out” attitude may not serve Republicans well politically on the eve of a presidential election year if the court rules against the subsidies. “As far as I’m aware the governor doesn’t have a contingency plan and that’s really not surprising considering Republicans have really had their head in the sand on this issue for so long. People are dying as a result of our inaction,” said Florida Democratic minority leader Rep. Mark Pafford.SUBSIDIESFROM PAGE 1RIGA, Latvia (AP) — NATO and Russia exchanged heated language reminiscent of Cold War days on Thursday with accusations of sinister geopolitical plotting and human rights abuses ying across an increasingly deep divide. NATO’s top U.S. civilian ofcial, Alexander Vershbow, said Thursday that “an angry, revisionist Russia” was stopping at little to re-establish its clout in Europe, including redrawing “borders by force to achieve its goals.” Vershbow, the alliance’s deputy secretary-general, told a conference in Latvia that President Vladimir Putin’s “aim seems to be to turn Ukraine into a failed state and to suppress and discredit alternative voices in Russia, so as to prevent a Russian ‘Maidan,’” referring to the Ukraine uprising which ousted Moscowally Viktor Yanukovych as president last year. He rattled off a litany of harsh accusations against the Kremlin. Under Putin, Vershbow said, Russia has developed “a new form of ‘hybrid warfare,’ combining military intimidation, disguised intervention, the covert supply of weapons and weapon systems, economic blackmail, diplomatic duplicity and media manipulation, with outright disinformation.” In Moscow, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov blasted the West for trying to enforce its will on others and cast Russia as an enemy. He condemned NATO’s decision to create command and control centers in the Baltic states and three other eastern allies, and to up grade a headquarters unit in Poland — calling those moves a clear signal that the alliance views Russia much as it once did the Soviet Union. Antonov said that while attending the recent Munich security conference he was struck by “mad, paranoid” talk about Russia’s coming military onslaught. “Western countries are building new divisive lines,” he said. “Russia has been picked up as a target.” Russia’s permanent representative to NATO, Alexander Grushko, said the alliance is dreaming of a “Russian Maidan.” The European Union and NATO have been harshly critical of Russia’s involvement in the standoff in eastern Ukraine and the annexation by Moscow of the Crimea peninsula. The 28 EU nations have imposed a series of sanctions against Moscow, including visa bans and asset freezes on top Russian ofcials, with Antonov being the latest addition to the list. Moscow rejects NATO claims that it has designs on its neighbors, countering that it is the West that is using the Ukraine crisis to try to expand the alliance further east.NATO, Russia exchange barbs reminiscent of Cold War AP PHOTOItalian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi , left, speaks as Russian President Vladimir Putin listens during their news conference after their talks in the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia, Thursday. TALLAHASSEE — Looking for ways to expand health care coverage, a Senate committee next week is slated to consider a wide-ranging proposal that would set up a new insurance-exchange program, according to documents led Thursday. The proposal (SPB 7044) would create what is dubbed the Florida Health Insurance Affordability Exchange Program, or FHIX, as a “marketplace” for enrolling people in private insurance coverage. It comes as senators and a variety of interests, including business and hospital groups, seek to expand coverage for low-income Floridians and tap into billions of dollars in federal money — without going along with a straight-up expansion of the Medicaid program. The Senate Health Policy Committee has placed the 49-page bill on its agenda for a Tuesday meeting. The committee this week held a work shop on possible coverage-expansion ideas, with Chairman Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach, saying senators were “looking at options.” The federal Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, promised to funnel tens of billions of dollars to Florida if the state agreed to expand Medicaid eligibility to cover more low-income people. House Republican leaders have rejected such a Medicaid expansion, arguing in part they don’t believe Florida can count on the money. The new Senate proposal appears to target the same population of low-income people who would be covered through expanding Medicaid. It also appears to rely heavily on the federal funding made available through the Affordable Care Act. But the structure of the private-insurance exchange would be substantially different than Medicaid, and the new program also would place additional restrictions on people seeking coverage. Under the bill, for example, applicants would have to show proof of employment, on-thejob training or pursuit of education. A parent with a child under 18 would have to be taking part in such activities at least 20 hours a week, while childless adults would be required to spend 30 hours a week. Also, people who are en rolled would be required to pay monthly premiums. For the lowest-income people, those premiums would be $3 a month. For others, they would increase to as much as $25 a month. Also, the bill leaves open the possibility of participants being charged limited amounts of co-payments, deductibles or other out-of-pock et costs. The bill would involve roles for the state Agency for Health Care Administration, the Department of Children and Families and the Florida Healthy Kids Corp. But a key role in running the exchange would be played by Florida Health Choices, a type of health marketplace that has signed up relatively few people since being created by lawmakers in 2008.Florida Senate to consider new health exchangeBy JIM SAUNDERSNEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA WRITER FLORIDALEGISTIATISESSI O H201....................................................................................................................................................................................................... .


The Sun /Friday, March 6, 2015 WIRE Page 5 STATE NEWSTALLAHASSEE — After spending at least $300,000 of taxpayer money on legal expenses, Gov. Rick Scott is abandoning his ght to force welfare applicants to undergo mandatory drug tests. A federal appeals court ruled in December that the state’s mandatory, suspicion-less drug testing of applicants in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF, program is an unconstitutional violation of Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures by the government. Tuesday was the deadline for Scott to ask for an “en banc” review from the full 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld previous court decisions that the Florida law is unconstitutional, or to le an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court. “We chose not to appeal this case. The governor is continuing to protect Florida children any way he can and create an environment where fam ilies can get jobs so they are able to pursue their dreams in safe communities,” Scott spokeswoman Jackie Schutz said in a statement Wednesday evening. The American Civil Liberties Union, which led the challenge on behalf of single father and Navy veteran Luis Lebron shortly after the law went into effect in 2011, hailed the end of the drawnout legal battle over the drug tests, an issue Scott campaigned on during his rst bid for governor in 2010. “This law was always about scoring political points on the backs of Florida’s poor and treating them like suspected crimi nals without suspicion or evidence. It not only offended the dignity of families who are struggling to get by and need temporary assistance, but it also offended constitutional protections against invasive government searches,” ACLU of Florida Executive Director Howard Simon said in a statement. In December’s 54-page opinion authored by appeals-court Judge Stanley Marcus, the Atlanta-based court rejected Scott’s arguments that the drug tests are needed to ensure that children in poor families grow up in drug-free homes. The state also argued that TANF applicants would give up privacy rights by consenting to urine tests to be eligible for benets. The law “offends the Fourth Amendment,” Marcus wrote, and relied on the state’s own evidence showing that, during the short time that the law was in effect, fewer than 3 percent of TANF applicants tested positive for drugs. “Of course, citizens do not abandon all hope of privacy by applying for government assistance. By virtue of poverty, TANF applicants are not stripped of their legitimate expectations of privacy — they are not employees in dangerous vocations or students subject to the (power) of the state,” Marcus wrote. Scott, however, has not totally abandoned a separate effort to drug test state workers. The governor was forced to capitulate on an executive order requiring all state employees to submit to urine tests. The federal appeals court ruled last year that Scott could not constitutionally justify drug testing for all types of state workers without a reason. Scott and lawyers for the ACLU of Florida, which represents the state workers’ union, haggled for months before reaching consensus on classes of jobs that could be eligible for the tests. The U.S. Supreme Court this summer refused to hear an appeal in the case, which is pending before a federal judge in Miami.Gov. Scott drops welfare drug-testing fightBy DARA KAMNEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA WRITER TALLAHASSEE — For at least two decades, drivers found out the hard way where Waldo is. Nestled along U.S. 301, the small North Florida city of Waldo became famous as a speed trap — so much that the AAA auto club warned motor ists about the potentially expensive perils of failing to tap the brakes while passing through. The Waldo police department disbanded last year, at least in part because ofcers disclosed they had been placed under a ticket quota. Now, lawmakers are speeding toward ensuring other cities or counties don’t dictate how many tickets ofcers should write. The Senate Fiscal Policy Committee on Thursday unanimously approved a bill (SB 264) that would make clear local law-enforcement agencies cannot use ticket quotas. Also, the bill would require individual local governments to submit reports to the Legislature if trafc-ticket revenues cover more than 33 percent of the costs of operating their police departments. Bill sponsor Rob Bradley, a Fleming Island Republican whose district includes Waldo, said the public should be aware if money from trafc tickets plays a large role in supporting law-enforcement agencies. “This is a fantastic bill,’’ said Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth. “It’s about transparency in government.” The bill is now ready to go to the full Senate. A similar House bill (HB 421), led by Rep. Ray Rodrigues, R-Estero, was approved Wednesday by the House Highway and Waterway Safety Subcommittee. Bradley said state law-enforcement agencies are barred from using ticket quotas, but restrictions on cities and counties have not been so clear. H. Lee Moftt, a former House speaker who lobbies for AAA, said the auto club began publicizing speed traps in Waldo and two nearby towns, Lawtey and Hampton, in the 1990s. Moftt said AAA even put up billboards warning motorists about the speed traps. He said trafc enforcement should not be about collecting money. “You bet this is sound policy,’’ Moftt said of the Senate bill, which is backed by the Florida Police Benevolent Association and the Florida Police Chiefs Association. Waldo is in northeast Alachua County along U.S. 301, a highway that carries trafc between areas such as Jacksonville and Gainesville. The Gainesville Sun newspaper reported last year that public records showed Waldo ofcers issued 11,603 trafc citations in 2013, nearly half the amount written by the vastly larger Gainesville police department. After the Waldo police department was disbanded, the Alachua County Sheriff’s Ofce stepped in to provide services.Lawmakers look to end speed trapsBy JIM SAUNDERSNEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA WRITER transparency in government.” similar House bill (HB led by Rep.

The work will cost about $4.5 million, according to a statement from Wright released Thursday, and will begin in May. Almost 50 years old, Leonhardt Hall has not had signicant work done on it since 1968, according to Wright. The building’s roof, re sprinkler system, heating and air-conditioning systems, plumbing and windows will be worked on. “The project will be completed in two phases,” said John Purnell, project manager for Wright. Splitting the project in two will allow classes and labs to remain open while new facilities are completed on the second oor, according to the statement.Lawmakers criticize Obama’s changes to Cuba policyTALLAHASSEE (AP) — Republican lawmakers blasted President Barack Obama’s decision to restore diplomatic relations with Cuba on Thursday, saying it will only serve to empower the communist nation that’s been ruled by a dictatorship since 1959. Republican members of the House Local & Federal Affairs Committee speaking before a nearly empty meeting room gave forceful speeches in support of a three-page message expressing the will of the Legislature they hope to send to Obama and congressional leaders. The 8-4 vote to send the message was along party lines. The message expresses “profound disagreement” with the president’s decision in December to restore relations with Cuba.Orange juice sales post biggest decline in 3 yearsWINTER HAVEN (AP) — If Florida citrus needs a hero, it needs one right now.

Kroger jumped after reporting better-than-expected earnings that were boosted in part by lower fuel costs. Joy Global, a manufacturer of mining equipment, fell sharply after it said that the worldwide plunge in commodity prices was hurting its business. Investors got some positive news on the global economy early in the day as the European Central Bank upgraded its growth forecast for the eurozone this year to 1.5 percent from 1 percent. ECB President Mario Draghi also said that the bank’s planned 1 trillion euro ($1.1 trillion) stimulus program will start on Monday. Even though gains for stocks have slowed this week, major indexes remain close to record levels after a strong surge in February. Despite steady gains in recent years, stocks remain attractive because interest rates are still close to historic lows, while company earnings are inching higher, said Scott Keifer, a global investment specialist at JPMorgan Private Bank. “Fundamentally, things are still good,” he said. “We think this is an environment of global growth that’s good, but not great.” The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 2.51 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,101.04. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 38.82 points, or 0.2 percent, to 18,135.72.

Mario Draghi, the bank’s president, said consumers and businesses in the 19 euro countries are beneting not only from cheaper energy prices but also from optimism over the coming stimulus. He cited “a signicant number of positive effects” from the January announcement of the massive stimulus plan, on top of previous efforts to loosen credit to businesses. Borrowing conditions are already considerably easier, he noted. “Looking ahead, we expect the economic recovery to broaden and strengthen,” Draghi told reporters after the bank kept its key interest rate on hold at its monthly meeting Thursday. The comments helped push up European stocks and sent the euro to a 12-year low. The ECB raised its eurozone growth forecast for this year to 1.5 percent from 1.0 percent amid signs credit is owing more easily. Draghi cautioned that some member states’ failure to make pro-growth reforms would dampen the recovery. He said the ECB would on Monday start buying 60 billion euros ($67 billion) a month in government and corporate bonds. The purchases with newly printed money aim to drive down market interest rates, stimulating lending and growth and raising the rate of ination, which is dangerously low at minus 0.3 percent. The currency union still faces serious risks as it tries to recover from a crisis over government debt in countries such as Greece, Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Italy. Growth is returning, overcoming the drag from government spending restraint and higher taxes. But progress is lagging on reforms by member countries such as France to cut regulations on hiring and ring and reduce red tape that discourages business growth.

It’s been a year of hard lessons and costs that few thought Ukraine would be able to bear. Ukraine today remains mired in governmental and nancial crises. It’s now spending about 5 percent of its gross domestic product on defense. And that isn’t enough. Yet despite the ghting in the southeast and the shortfall of money and equipment, Ukraine’s military is signicantly stronger than it was when Crimea fell with barely a shot being red. “The reality is that we didn’t have any choice in the matter,” said Dmytro Tymchuk, a member of Parliament who was the director of Ukraine’s Center for Military and Political Research a year ago. “We have severe economic and social crises today, but if we don’t devote enough effort and money to defense, the question becomes the existence of Ukraine.” Politicians admit that the collection boxes at churches and museums and even on the streets asking for support for troops have been essential. Frequently, troops are asked to outt themselves on their way to battle, and families with enough to spare often will outt a husband or son and several other members of his unit. In the past year, the Ukrainian military has expanded in total manpower, from 150,000 to 250,000, and in combat-ready troops, which were a paltry few thousand last March but now number more than 50,000. Still, there’s doubt that will be enough. Contrary to the notion that Ukraine is embroiled in a civil war with “pro-Russia separatists,” Ukrainian experts and ofcials say the evidence is over whelming that they’re standing against the Russian military. Ukrainian experts say that at least 60 percent of the troops ghting against the Ukrainian military in the southeast are Russian, though they’re uncertain how many of them are regular army and how many are special mercenary forces that Russia sends specically for this ght. The weapons, ammunition, equipment, funding, tactics and leadership are almost entirely Russian, Ukrainian experts say. A Russian newspaper report this week seemed to back those claims. The paper, Novaya Gazeta, which has been critical of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Ukraine policy, quoted a Russian regular-army soldier being treated for war injuries in a hospital in the Donetsk province of Ukraine as saying he and his battalion had been sent in from Buryatia, a Russian republic just north of Mongolia. That’s about 4,000 miles from Ukraine. With that evidence of Russian involvement, few expect the cease-re in the southeast region known as Donbas to hold long. “This is Russia’s war,” said Leonid Polyakov, who was Ukraine’s minister of defense during the pro-West presidency of Viktor Yushchenko and remains one of this nation’s top military experts. “Ukraine does not want this war. Ukraine has been forced into this ght, and to continue in this ght, by continuing Russian aggression.” A year ago, Polyakov said, Ukraine was wholly unprepared. The ofcial Ukrainian defense doctrine — a document, he notes, that politicians have been too overwhelmed by war to change — proclaimed that Ukraine had no enemies. In that document, Russia is considered a friend and protector.A year after losing Crimea, stronger Ukraine military emergesBy MATTHEW SCHOFIELDMCCLATCHY FOREIGN STAFF | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLDLast Ebola patient released in LiberiaMONROVIA, Liberia (AP) — Liberia released its last Ebola patient, a 58-year-old teacher, from a treatment center on Thursday, beginning its countdown to being declared Ebola-free. “I am one of the happiest human beings today on earth because it was not easy going through this situation and coming out alive,” Beatrice Yardolo told The Associated Press after her release. As she walked out of the clinic, wearing a bright yellow shirt, hospital cap and a beaming smile, Yardolo kept thanking God and the health workers at the center. Yardolo’s release brings Liberia hope after about a year of battling the deadly Ebola virus, which killed more than 4,100 people in this West African country. There are no other conrmed cases of Ebola in the country, and as such Liberia can begin to count up to 42 days to be declared Ebola-free in keeping with World Health Organization protocols and standards, Tolbert Nyenswah, Assistant Health Minister, said Wednesday.Syria says it killed military leader of al-Qaida groupBEIRUT (AP) — The military commander of al-Qaida’s Syrian afliate was killed Thursday in an explosion targeting a meeting of senior militants in northern Syria which also killed and wounded a number of other ghters. State-run news agency SANA said Abu Hommam al-Shami was killed in a military operation carried out by the Syrian army that targeted a Nusra Front meeting in the village of Habeet, in the northern Idlib province. It did not elaborate, but the report suggested he was killed in an airstrike. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights conrmed that a number of prominent leaders, including Abu Hommam, were killed when a Nusra Front leader ship meeting was targeted. It said it was not clear whether the meeting was targeted by a U.S.-led coalition airstrike or a Syrian army strike. The fate of the group’s overall leader, Abu Mohammad al-Golani, was not clear, it said, although there were reports that he had been in the area.Envelopes with white powder found at Canadian officesTORONTO (AP) — Authorities in Quebec launched an investigation after envelopes containing a suspicious white powder were found Thursday in the district ofces of at least two Conservative Canadian cabinet ministers. A government ofcial later said the powder sent to one of the ministers has been deemed harmless. It wasn’t immediately clear what the powder was but a senior government ofcial said the material sent to Infrastructure Minister Denis Lebel’s ofce was conrmed as harmless. The ofcial, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly, said the envelope also contained a “threat stating that conservatives will be annihilated.”Iraq: Islamic State militants ‘bulldozed’ ancient siteBAGHDAD (AP) — Islamic State militants “bulldozed” the ancient Nimrud archaeological site near the northern Iraqi city of Mosul on Thursday using heavy military vehicles, the government said. A statement from Iraq’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities didn’t elaborate on the extent of the damage, saying only that the group continues to “defy the will of the world and the feelings of humanity” with this latest act. Nimrud is a 13th century B.C. Assyrian archaeological site located on the Tigris River just south of Iraq’s second largest city, Mosul, which was captured by the Islamic State group in June. The extremists, who control a third of Iraq and Syria, have attacked other archaeological and religious sites, claiming that they promote apostasy.PLO calls for ending security coordination with IsraelRAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — A top body in the Palestine Liberation Organization on Thursday called for ending security coordination with Israel — a step that could further escalate tensions. It is not clear if Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will implement the resolution by the PLO’s Central Council. Since the beginning of the year, both sides have taken retaliatory steps. In January, Abbas sought membership in the International Criminal Court, paving the way for possible war crimes charges against Israel. In response, Israel withheld tax transfers to the Palestinian Authority. Activists in Abbas’ Fatah movement countered by enforcing a boycott of goods made by Israeli food companies. Despite the tensions, security coordination between Abbas’ forces and Israeli troops has continued in the West Bank. The coor dination is meant to prevent violence, including possible attacks against Israel. Meanwhile, Israel said Thursday it would ease restrictions on Gaza vegetable exports for the rst time since the Islamic militant group Hamas seized power in 2007.

Cash had made his own major league spring training debut as a player 13 years ago in Port Charlotte, when the ballpark was called Charlotte County Stadium. MLB SPRING TRAINING: Baltimore 3, Tampa Bay 2Going back to the beginningPORT CHARLOTTE — Thirteen years ago, a young Toronto Blue Jays farmhand played the rst major league spring training game of his career at Charlotte Sports Park. He remembers thinking “holy smokes” when 6-foot-3 Texas Rangers slugger Juan Gonzalez stepped to the plate, and he remembers hitting a double in his rst at-bat on a wind-swept afternoon in Port Charlotte. That young farmhand was Kevin Cash. And on Thursday, the Tampa Bay Rays skipper managed the rst game of his career on the same eld he played his rst big-league game on back in 2002. It was only an exhibition game, sure, and it’s hard to put too much stock into a contest where starting pitcher Nathan Karns threw two innings before going to the showers and Evan Longoria was taken out after four innings and two at-bats. But for Cash and his coaching staff, it’s a milestone. Even though they lost, 3-2, to the Baltimore Orioles, the Rays and their rookie manager crossed one more thing off By JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITERCash makes his managerial debut at same park as his rst spring game as player TODAY’S GAMETampa Bay vs. Minnesota at Charlotte Sports Park, 1:05 p.m.SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNO Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria tags Baltimore Orioles baserunner Chris Parmelee. The Orioles defeated the Rays 3-2 on Thursday. CASH | 6 Tarpons follow usual patternBy RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONDENTPUNTA GORDA — Charlotte High School wrestling coach Evan Robinson was asked how this season measured up to some of the past seasons in the program’s storied history. He shrugged. “Very similar,” he said. He began rooting around his ofce looking for a 2014-2015 Tarpons wrestling program. Sure enough, this year’s 20-3 record and second-place nish in the District 12 competition looked a lot like last season’s 21-3 dual-meet record and runner-up nish in districts. And that looked quite similar to the 18-5 record and second-place nish in districts in 2012-2013. You get the picture. Charlotte is home to a dynamic wrestling program, one that is ranked in the top 10 in the state, and one that hasn’t experienced a losing season since 1987-88. The Tarpons have averaged 18 wins in Robinson’s 11 seasons as coach. “We’re pretty normal,” he chuckled. “We’re pretty much the same.” PREP WRESTLING: CharlotteTARPONS | 4 WRESTLING REGIONALSREGION 3A3 Local team: North Port Site: Osceola H.S., Kissimmee REGION 2A-3 Local teams: Charlotte, Port Charlotte, Venice Site: Charlotte H.S., Punta Gorda REGION 1A-3 Local teams: Lemon Bay, Imagine School Site: Tenoroc H.S., Lakeland SCHEDULES (for all regions) Today: Weigh-ins, 10 a.m.; prelims and wrestlebacks, noon.

Atherley won the high jump with a 5-foot-6 effort, the 200 meters in 25.48 seconds and the 100 hurdles in a personal best of 13.93 in the Lady Tarpon Invitational at Charlotte High School Thursday night. . “I was third in both hurdles races at the state meet last season,” Atherley said after winning the hurdles. “I think I can run in the mid 13s in the 100 hurdles this season and go 6 feet in the high jump. My personal best in the high jump is 5-712.” TRACK: Lady Tarpon InviteATHERLEY | 4 PORT CHARLOTTE — About the only thing that’s been consistent about the Lemon Bay High School softball team in the last few weeks has been its inconsistency. Solid victories have ben inter spersed with heartbreaking losses, and Thursday’s non-district 16-6 victory over Port Charlotte at the Pirate Cove has meant the Manta Rays have alternated wins and losses over the last six games after winning their rst four. Summer Jones, Rayne Wells and Ashton Werden had three hiuts for the Manta Rays (7-4) in a 16-hit attack to hold a game Pirates squad at bay as they attempted to get back into the game. “Our girls had some nice hits and came back every time they scored. It was nice to see them answer back on a regular basis, which we have not had,” Lemon Bay coach Kim Pinkham said. Coming in, Lemon Bay had lost four of six, two in extra innings and another by two runs, and after the rst three innings it appeared as if it would face Inconsistent Mantas too much for PiratesBy CHARLES BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENT PREP SOFTBALL: Lemon Bay 16, Port Charlotte 6 UP NEXTLemon Bay: Vs.

GARAGESALELISTINGSALW AY SI NTHECLASSIFIEDS DOVER, Del. — NASCAR driver Kurt Busch will not face criminal charges over claims by his ex-girlfriend that he smashed her head into a bedroom wall and choked her, Delaware prosecutors said Thursday. The decision by the state attorney general’s ofce ends the criminal investigation of Busch, known in NASCAR circles as “The Outlaw,” over allegations by Patricia Driscoll, whom Busch’s attorneys portrayed as a scorned woman who tried to destroy Busch’s career after he ended their relationship. State prosecutors said there was not enough evidence to bring criminal charges. “After a thorough consideration of all of the available information about the case, it is determined that the admissible evidence and available witnesses would likely be insufcient to meet the burden of establishing beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Busch committed a crime during the September 26th incident,” the attorney general’s ofce said in a prepared statement. In a prepared statement, Busch thanked prosecutors for carefully considering the evidence and his supporters for standing by him “throughout this nightmare.”No criminal charge for Kurt BuschBy RANDALL CHASEASSOCIATED PRESS AUTO RACING: Kurt BuschDelaware AG ends probe due to lack of evidenceAP FILE PHOTOKurt Busch, left, will not face criminal charges stemming from claims made by his ex-girlfriend Patricia Driscoll, right. Busch currently is serving an indenite suspension from NASCAR competition. Ryan Schnulle has added individual conference champion to his running achievements. The University of Florida junior won the 800-meter run at the Feb. 28 Southeastern Conference Indoor Championship at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. The former Charlotte High School standout nished in 1 minute, 48.25 seconds to become the program’s third conference indoor champion in the event, and teammate Andres Arroyo placed second. The nation’s No. 1-ranked men’s team won its seventh indoor title. “I was pretty ecstatic,” said Schnulle, who receives a medal for the individual win and a ring for the team win. “We (he and Arroyo) wanted to do as well as we could to help our team and separate ourselves.” Running on a at, six-lane 290-meter track, Schnulle said he was seventh among eight at the 400-meter mark. At the last 300 meters, he swung wide and moved into rst place with 150 meters left. “I had a feeling it would be kind of bunched up,” Schnulle said. “Not many people want to go out and lead it because you have a big target on your back.” “I knew where I needed to be to have a chance,” he said. “I executed perfectly.” He knew before the nal which opponents would be his chief competition. “Same suspects as always,” he said. “Anyone who can make a nal has a good chance of winning.” Atop the list was defending champion Keffri Neal, a University of Kentucky senior who had the support of the home crowd. “I know he has a really good kick,” Schnulle said of Neal, who nished third. Jonathan Nusbaum, who ran for the Tarpons and Warner University, said he watched the race. “He’s one of a kind,” Nusbaum said. “He was so great. He was so composed.” Schnulle’s win is a marked improvement over his eighth place in last year’s indoor championship, where he competed on a banked track. “Last year I should have done a lot better,” said Schnulle, whose roommate is Tyler Cardillo, a past Tarpon who competed for Florida cross country and track as a freshman before stopping to focus on his studies. “I put my self in terrible position. It’s harder to get around people on a small track.” Arroyo and Schnulle qualied at the Iowa State Classic in February for this year’s Division I indoor national championship March 13-14 at the University of Arkansas. They posted personal records, with Arroyo’s time the second best in the NCAA this year and Schnulle’s the sixth best. They are among 16 who will compete in the 800, and Florida is one of three schools with two entries. Schnulle nished fth in the event at nationals last year, earning his rst All-America honor. Schnulle said the Gators y out Wednesday, and the 800 seminal is Friday night. His father, David, attended the conference championship and will attend the nationals.Schnulle beats usual ‘suspects’ for SEC title AWAY AT COLLEGEFormer Tarpon wins 800-meter run in 1:48.25By BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT | COMMUNITY CALENDARBOXINGYouth and adult classes: Male and female.

Holmes never liked the old Blue Monster at Doral because he thought it was too easy for a World Golf Championship. He said this with a straight face Thursday after a 10-under 62 that tied the tournament record at the Cadillac Championship, gave him a four-shot lead and left the rest of this worldclass eld to wonder just how he managed. “I was able to hit the shots where I envisioned and hit good shots, and today the putter was on,” Holmes said. “Put that combination together, you do everything pretty good, you’re going to shoot a good score.” He made it sound as easy as it looked. Except that Trump National Doral wasn’t all that easy for everyone else. Rory McIlroy again felt tentative with his swing and shot 40 on his opening nine holes before nishing without a par on his last six holes — an eagle, three birdies and two bogeys that allowed him to salvage a 73. The world’s No. 1 player has shot 73-74-73 in his three rounds in Florida this year. Phil Mickelson shot 74 and failed to make a birdie for the rst time in 186 rounds on the PGA Tour, dating to the nal day at Olympic Club in the 2012 U.S. Open. Ryan Moore was hanging with Holmes until he hit his tee shot into the water on the par-5 18th hole and made double bogey. He still had a 66. Puerto Rico Open: At Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, PGA Tour rookie Mark Hubbard closed with a birdie in windy conditions for a one-stroke lead. Hubbard opened with a 4-under 68 at Trump International Golf ClubPuerto Rico. He birdied Nos. 4, 5 and 6, dropped a stroke on the par-3 eighth and finished with a birdie on the par-4 ninth. HSBC Women’s Champions: At Singapore, South Korea’s Inbee Park and Taiwan’s Yani Tseng each shot 6-under 66 to top the leaderboard after the first round. American Angela Stanford, the 2012 winner, was a stroke back. Michelle Wie had a 73. Africa Open: At East London, South Africa, Ireland’s Kevin Phelan and Englan’s Matt Ford each shot 5-under 67 to share the firstround lead in the Africa Open. Phelan tied for second last week in the Joburg Open. England’s Richard Bland, David Howell and John Parry were a stroke back along with South Africa’s Neil Schietekat and Spain’s Eduardo de la Riva.

Nigel Hayes had 12 points and nine rebounds for the Badgers (27-3, 15-2), who had at least a tie for rst place already wrapped up last weekend. This is their fourth title under coach Bo Ryan and the rst in seven years. The Badgers made seven of their rst 10 attempts from 3-point range and nished with 18 assists against just nine turnovers. Nate Mason had 15 points and Carlos Morris added 11 points for the Gophers (17-13, 6-11), who fell behind by 20 points in the rst half and couldn’t fully recover. With the Big Ten not as strong as it was the last few years and the Gophers stuck in the bottom half of the conference standings all winter, this was the rst buzzworthy game at the old barn this season. Ohio State, which was No. 22 in The Associated Press poll at the time, was the only other ranked team to visit. The Gophers furiously rallied that night to force overtime but fell 74-72. Two months later, with seven losses in Big Ten play by six points or less still stinging, the Gophers brought some momentum into the nal week of the schedule coming off a rare win on the road over Michigan State. But even an upset of the Badgers wasn’t going to be enough to put them in the NCAA Tournament conversation.

The Razorbacks (24-6, 13-4 Southeastern Conference) trailed by 11 points with 7 minutes left in a wild game during which they led by 20 in the first half With the win, Arkansas clinched second place in the SEC and will be on the opposite side of the league tournament bracket from top-ranked and undefeated Kentucky. South Carolina (14-15, 5-12) managed only one point after leading scorer Tyrone Johnson left the game with cramps with 2:29 left. Johnson finished with 18 points.

Page 4 SP The Sun /Friday, March 6, 2015 This year, Charlotte advanced 13 wrestlers to the Region 2A-3 tour nament, which is being held today and Saturday at Charlotte. Robinson expects his wrestlers to do well. “We know we can be in the top three in regionals, if not winning it,” Robinson said. “We know we can be in the top ve in states.” Finishing second to Riverdale at districts stung a little. But with three programs ranked in the top 10 in the state — Riverdale and Fort Myers are the others — the district tournament in highly competitive. “We have the talent,” Robinson said. “It’s a big, key weekend for us. We’re going to have to produce a lot of qualiers to do well in states.” Robinson, who wrestled at Charlotte and Purdue University, believes one of the reasons for his program’s success is the support from the community. “You have a very wonderful community that backs academics and sports,” he said. “That’s pretty neat. People who don’t know anything about wrestling will support us. People help. That’s a key factor.” Dylan Mooney is one of the Charlotte wrestlers competing this weekend. The senior, who wrestles at 132 pounds, is 34-4. He won a district title, nished third at regionals and qualied for states last year. He was second at districts this season. His goal at regionals is to “win so I can have a better spot at states. My goal at states is to nish in the top three.” The other 12 wrestlers who were scheduled to compete at regionals are 106-pound Ryan Rubenacker, a junior; 120-pounder Matthew Gjerde, a sophomore; 126-pounder Trevor Manseld, a ninth-grader; 138-pounder Sam Spence, a senior; 145-pounder Ethan Goff, a senior; 152-pounder Travis Locklear, a senior; 160-pounder Brody Manseld, a senior; 170-pounder Chandler Pritchett, a senior; 182-pounder Tyler Rainville, a junior; 195-pounder Dalton Mills, a sophomore; 220-pounder Ryan Adams, a senior; and 285-pounder Bucky Dennis, a senior.TARPONSFROM PAGE 1 SAN FRANCISCO — Defensive tackle Darnell Dockett notes on his Twitter page header that he will be comeback player of the year.” It looks like he will get that chance. Dockett signed a two-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday that will keep him in the NFC West after playing all of his 10 NFL seasons with Arizona. Agent Drew Rosenhaus conrmed the contract Thursday morning for the three-time Pro Bowler then the 49ers announced later in the day that Dockett had reached a deal. Rosenhaus also posted a photo of him standing with Dockett on Twitter that read, “Congrats to the newest Niner!” with signing papers on the table. The 33-year-old Dockett sat out all of 2014 with a knee injury suffered during training camp. He started every game for the Cardinals in 2013, nishing with 46 tackles and 4 sacks. Now, he will play for promoted defensive line coach Jim Tomsula, named 49ers head coach in January. On Sunday, the animated Dockett posted on Twitter, “Whatever team Im on, we will WIN!!!!....... That’s all I know. That’s all I think about. ‘I love you all.’” Dockett, who once said of the 49ers “I hate that team,” said in a Phoenix radio interview Thursday that San Francisco showed he was wanted. “They made an effort and they showed me much love man,” he said on Fox Sports 910, “and I’m excited by that challenge.” Bears exploring trade options for Marshall: The Chicago Bears declined to commit to Brandon Marshall when asked about the veteran wide receiver last month, and now the team is exploring trade options five days before the start of the new league year, according to the Chicago Tribune. It’s not known what the Bears are seeking in exchange for Marshall, who will turn 31 at the end of the month, but it’s almost certainly less than the two third-round draft picks they sent to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for him in March 2012. Marshall, who made 61 receptions for 721 yards and eight touchdowns in an injury-plagued season that was full of drama, was selected to the Pro Bowl in his first two seasons with the team and has five Pro Bowl appearances in his career. NFL says Hardy is eligible to sign: In Charlotte, N.C., the NFL said Panthers defensive end and soon-to-be free agent Greg Hardy will be allowed to sign a new contract even if he remains on the commissioner’s exempt list. League spokesman Greg Aiello said in an email, “There’s nothing to prevent a player on the Exempt list without a contract from signing a new one.” NFL free agency begins Tuesday. Hardy’s playing status remains in limbo. He isn’t allowed to play until removed from the exempt list. Patriots let Wilfork go: Defensive tackle Vince Wilfork said he will not be back with New England next season, ending an 11-year stay in which he won two Super Bowls and established himself as the cornerstone of the Patriots’ defense. In a statement on Twitter, Wilfork said the team told him it would not be picking up his option for 2015, making him eligible for free agency. “I’m in a good place,” Wilfork said. “I will take my time think things through take into consideration many things but mainly my family and see where life goes from there. ... But regardless remember I will always remain a New Englander a Patriot forever.” Jones-Drew retires, Woodley released by Raiders: In Alameda, two of the Oakland Raiders’ big free agent acquisitions from last season are no longer with the team. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew announced his retirement and defensive end LaMarr Woodley was released. The two were brought in last March as general manager Reggie McKenzie targeted veterans to help rebuild the struggling organization. But many of those players failed to reach the Pro Bowl levels from their past and the Raiders won just three games last season. Jones-Drew and Woodley were two of the biggest symbols of that failed strategy. Palmer restructures contract, aims to be ready for OTAs: In Tempe, Ariz., Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer said he has restructured his contract to help with the team’s salary cap status with the aim of making a good team better come the free agency period. Nearly 3 months after under going surgery to repair a torn ACL, Palmer said he is “doing great.” “I’m going to be ready to rock and roll by the season, and I’m definitely going to be ready by that, definitely going to be ready for camp,” he said, “and shooting to be getting reps in our mandatory mini, and hopefully in some of the OTA practices.” Panthers give Greg Olsen 3-year, $22.5M contract extension: In Charlotte, N.C., Greg Olsen is staying in Carolina. The Panthers announced they have signed Pro Bowl tight end to a three-year contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2018 season. The deal is worth $22.5 million overall and includes a $12 million signing bonus, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus. “I couldn’t be more excited,” Olsen told The Associated Press. “This is what we wanted since we came here and realized this was such a great place to be. We are so thankful that the team wanted me. That was our main goal to remain here in Charlotte.”Ex-Card Dockett signs with 49ers NFL NOTEBOOKBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOArizona Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett walks the sidelines during the rst half against the San Diego Chargers in Glendale, Ariz. on Sept. 8, 2014.

Korda beat Rios 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 in the nal. Korda tested positive for a banned steroid later that year at Wimbledon, but wasn’t penalized for it until after he retired in mid-1999. Rios has said he wants to receive the title if its proven Korda violated doping rules. Rios reached his only grand slam nal in Australia. He retired in 2004. Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki advanced to the quarterfinals of the Malaysian Open by beating Zhu Lin of China 6-4, 6-1 in Kuala Lumpur. The fifth-ranked Dane, a former top-ranked player, had seven aces in the match. Fourth-seeded Timea Bacsinszky advanced to the Monterrey Open quarterfinals in Mexico, beating Lesia Tsurenko 4-6, 6-4, 6-4. Andy Murray, playing in his native Scotland for the first time since winning Wimbledon in 2013, will face Donald Young in the opening singles today when Britain hosts the Unites States in the first round of the Davis Cup.SOCCEROrlando City announces sellout for inaugural MLS match: Orlando City Soccer officials say the club has reached sellout status for its inaugural Major League Soccer match. Club officials said that an addi tional allotment of 2,000 standing room-only tickets have now been sold, pushing the sellout for Sunday’s match against fellow expansion team New York FC to 62,000 at Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium. The team announced earlier this week that it had sold out of its original offering of 60,000 seats. Manchester United defender Jonny Evans denied spitting at Papiss Cisse during a Premier League game, while the Newcastle striker has issued an apology for his role in the incident. Television replays showed the pair spitting at each other Wednesday during United’s 2-0 win after Cisse had reacted angrily to a tackle by Evans. JUDICIARYData shows victim’s cell pinged along Hernandez’s alleged route: In Fall River, Mass., tracking data shown to the jury in the murder trial of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez indicates the victim’s cellphone pinged along the same route that prosecutors say Hernandez took that night. The data roughly tracks the route prosecutors say Hernandez took from Odin Lloyd’s home to the industrial park in North Attleborough where Lloyd was found shot to death June 17, 2013. A T-Mobile employee testified about cell sites that pinged Lloyd’s phone starting at 2:32 a.m., when prosecutors have said Hernandez picked Lloyd up at his home in Boston. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to killing Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee.

Westbrook had 43 points on 14-of-32 shooting and added seven assists and eight rebounds. On Wednesday night in Oklahoma City, he had career highs with 49 points and 16 rebounds and added 10 assists in an overtime victory over Philadelphia. Westbrook scored 19 points in the third quarter to help the Thunder take a 79-72 lead into the fourth. The Bulls pulled within one on Nikola Mirotic’s two free throws with 2:16 remaining. Westbrook then split two with 1:07 to play, and Enes Kanter rebounded the miss and scored to give Oklahoma City a 103-99 lead. Mirotic made a 3-pointer, and Westbrook hit a jumper with 37.1 seconds left. Mirotic made two free throws with 28.9 to go, pulling Chicago within one. Westbrook then had an air-ball with the shot-clock expiring, and Moore followed with his 3-pointer. After the 3, Westbrook stepped out of bounds after taking the inbounds pass. Mirotic nished with 26 points, Pau Gasol had 21 points and 12 rebounds, Mike Dunleavy also had 21 points, and Moore added 19. Joakim Noah had 12 rebounds, putting him over 5,000 for his career. Serge Ibaka had 25 points and nine rebounds for Oklahoma City. Westbrook was the rst player to have four straight triple-doubles since Michael Jordan had seven in 1989. The All-Star MVP scored at least 40 points for the third straight game. Union anticipates clash on age limit: In Miami Beach, an attorney for the union representing NBA players strongly indicated Thursday that the association will want players to again have the age limit for go pro lowered in the next round of collective bargaining. National Basketball Players Association general counsel Gary Kohlman said “quite likely the union will be taking a radically different position” than the NBA on the age issue, which will almost certainly be a contentious point between the sides when they sit down in the future. “If they were white and hockey players they would be out there playing. If they were white and baseball players they would be out there playing,” Kohlman said. “Because most of them are actually African-American and are in a sport and precluded from doing it, they have to go into this absurd world of playing for one year. “That’s just total complete hypocrisy.”Moore’s 3-pointer sinks surging ThunderBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Between myself, Rocco (Baldelli) and Charlie (Montoyo), just that on-field commu nication — I’ve never looked up after a pitch has crossed home plate and had to give signs to a third base coach.

He spent a lot of time focusing on the rst-full-squad address he gave to the team this past Saturday, and he’s since turned his nerves and excitement to opening day at Tropicana Field on April 6. But it was the beginning of something Cash has been preparing for since he was hired by his hometown Rays on Dec. 6. The 37-year-old has been a manager three months, but this was the rst game he’s actually managed. He spent the afternoon in the same corner of the home dugout Joe Maddon had occupied for the past six years at Charlotte Sports Park, a blue pullover on his back and his arms draped over the rail. Bench coach Tom Foley stood next to him, providing the veteran coaching presence Cash said kept him from being so nervous leading up to the game. The defensive replacements were scheduled days prior, but the managerial moves were still made in real time. Cash delivered the lineup card to home plate before the game, sent signs to rst-time third base coach Charlie Montoyo and walked out to the mound to make a pitching change in the ninth. “It was kind of as anticipated,” Cash said. “The walk in from right eld was probably that moment (it hit me), but after that it settled down.” It was tting that the Rays’ only two runs in the game came off the bat of outelder Joey Butler, who is the only player of the 63 in camp who has ever been a teammate of Cash; the two played for the Triple-A Round Rock Express in 2011. “It’s a little weird, but at the same time, it’s very relaxing,” Butler said of playing for Cash. “I feel like he’s one of the guys.” “I’m sure this is a day he dreamed of for all his life, and now the time has presented itself,” said inelder Tim Beckham, who went 0 for 3 and played ve innings at second base. “And as players, we’re here to help win games, and he’s the manager; he operates us.” Cash, for one, is glad Game 1 of the spring is over. Just like he was after that game against the Rangers 13 years ago, the Rays manager is ready to move on to the next one. “I know there are rsts for everything, but that’s another one we’ve knocked off the list,” Cash said. “Hopefully from now on, we can talk about the players.”Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or PAGE 1 PORT CHARLOTTE — For manager Kevin Cash, the evaluation of pitcher performance won’t start until after they get the rst few outings of spring under their belts. As far as Nathan Karns is concerned, though, the evaluation started in Thursday’s spring opener. The right-hander pitched two scoreless in the Tampa Bay Rays’ 3-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles, giving up just one hit and one walk while striking out one on 21 pitches. “It was fun out there. I enjoyed it,” Karns said. “It’s good to get your work in and get success right off the bat.” Karns gave up a one-out walk to second baseman Everth Cabrera in the rst inning, but that runner was later erased when third baseman Evan Longoria caught a Steve Clevenger pop up in shallow left and doubled off Cabrera at rst. Catcher Curt Casali gave Karns more defensive help in the second, erasing third baseman Jimmy Paredes’ one-out single when he threw him out stealing second. “He looked good. Threw a couple good breaking balls. I’m sure he was happy with his outing,” manager Kevin Cash said. “I know he wanted to get the ball down there a little bit — he seemed to pitch up in the zone — but he made a couple of pitches when it counted.” The 27-year-old is one of a small group of pitchers competing to ll the role of fth starter for the Rays until left-hander Matt Moore can return from Tommy John surgery, a job Karns said he spent the whole offseason working to win. One of his main competitors for the job, right-hander Alex Colome, is still being held up in the Dominican Republic due to visa issues, but Cash said the Rays won’t punish Colome for missing time for reasons he can’t control. “Colome is getting his work in. We know that,” Cash said. “So he’s still very much a factor.” Loud debut: Joey Butler made the most of his first game in a Rays uniform, going 2 for 2 and driving in both of the team’s runs. The outfielder brought home the game’s first run when he hit an RBI double off the left-field wall in the seventh inning, then doubled his RBI total when he launched a mammoth solo home run off the batter’s eye in center field. “It always feels good to square one up,” Butler said. “And anytime it results in a home run is pretty good.” Miller time: Veteran right-hander Jim Miller was in Rays camp on Thursday after agreeing to a minor league deal with the team. The 32-year-old went 6-4 with a 3.30 ERA in 36 relief appearances for Triple-A Scranton/WilkesBarre and gave up six runs in 2 innings for the New York Yankees last year. His last extended major league action came in 2012, when he compiled a a 2.59 ERA in 33 relief appearances for the Oakland Athletics. Cash said he will join the group of relievers fighting to fill the last three spots in the Rays’ opening day bullpen. Extra bases: Today’s game will mark the Rays’ 500th spring training game. They are 226-245-28 all-time. Curt Casali and his group from Advantica won the annual Rays Charity Golf Tournament at the Ritz Carlton Golf Club in Bradenton on Wednesday, finishing one stroke ahead of Jake Odorizzi and the Rays’ ownership group. The Rays have not gotten any update as to when reliever Grant Balfour’s might return from Australia.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@ quick first impressionBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITERKarns pitches two shutout innings in bid for rotation MLB SPRING TRAINING: Rays notebook SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNO Tampa Bay Rays inelder Tim Beckham takes a cut at a pitch on Thursday against the Baltimore Orioles.

Giants’ Pence breaks forearmBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSSCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Hunter Pence broke his left forearm and will be sidelined six to eight weeks after being hit by a pitch in the sixth inning of the San Francisco Giants’ 8-6 win over a Chicago Cubs split-squad on Thursday. One of the clubhouse leaders for the World Series champions, the quirky Pence had played in all 162 games for the Giants the past two seasons. He hit .277 with 20 homers and 74 RBIs last year. He was hit by a pitch from the Cubs’ Corey Black and went to rst base before being removed from the game. “It didn’t look good,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “You hate to see it but these things do happen. Guys work so hard to get ready.” X-rays showed Pence has a non-displaced fracture in his left forearm. Maddon makes debut with Cubs in spring tie with A’s: In Mesa, Ariz., manager Joe Maddon made his spring debut with the Chicago Cubs, a 2-2 tie against Barry Zito and the Oakland Athletics. Travis Wood pitched two perfect innings for a split-squad of Cubs, and Mike Olt hit a two-run homer in the second inning. Maddon opted out of his contract with Tampa Bay over the winter and then agreed to take over the Cubs. Zito pitched two innings in his first spring game for the A’s after taking last year off. The left-hander allowed two hits, struck out two and walked none. Tight Darvish leaves early: In Surprise, Ariz., Rangers ace Yu Darvish left his spring training debut with tightness in his right triceps after pitching a scoreless first inning against Kansas City. Darvish gave up a leadoff single to Alcides Escobar before retiring the next three batters he faced. He threw 10 of 12 pitches for strikes before leaving for precautionary reasons. Rogers strong in Yankees win: In Bradenton, Esmil Rogers, trying to cement a spot on the New York Yankees’ pitching staff, tossed two scoreless innings in a 2-1 victory against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Rogers gave up just a double by Korean rookie Jung Ho Kang and also struck out one. If he makes the team, Rogers could be used as a long reliever and spot starter. Left-hander Francisco Liriano and right-hander Charlie Morton each tossed two scoreless innings for the Pirates. Davis hits long homer in Orioles’ win over Blue Jays: In Sarasota, Chris Davis hit a long three-run homer and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox 5-0 to win the second half of their split-squad doubleheader. Davis, who will have to sit out the season opener as he serves the final game of his 25-game suspension for amphetamine use, homered to rightcenter field in the third inning. MLB players union rips Hamilton leaks: In Anaheim, tThe Major League Baseball Players Association is furious about information leaks surrounding Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton. In a statement Thursday, the union said the anonymous leaks about Hamilton’s situation “are cowardly, undermine the integrity of our collectively bargained agreements and in some instances have been wholly inaccurate.” MLB NOTEBOOK SEE ALSOSpring training standings and linescores appear in Scoreboard on PAGE 5. .EfbOakNk/"Ruse! tiEfatrlair4 Ina ! !or an1}`t'.t.% t lY.nh1.\VCMq Y /J i< I(1:'I IIII'II I l i Milli,,..Lr

So wonderful, in fact, she did not enjoy splitting time between Maya and her busy and popular studio at 112 Sullivan St. in downtown Punta Gorda. Eventually, she put the business up for sale. “It has been two and a half years in the think tank,” she said. “Since she’s been born, I felt my time was divided and that I wasn’t able to do either one as much as I wanted to. I spent eight years cultivating and building the studio and loving it. It was something I was committed to and dedicated to.” She added, “I knew I wasn’t going to sell to just anybody.

Herald Page 6 Friday, March 6, 2015 HERALD PHOTO BY GORDON BOWERThe Yoga Sanctuary teacher Anna Martin, new owner Jennifer French and teachers Sally Bertolotta and Margit Bannon are members of a sta who love yoga and are determined to pass on that love to the studio’s current and future students.Fortunately, just such a person was right under her nose — Jennifer French, a Punta Gorda resident who has been with Yonker almost since the beginning. For the last three years, French has been the longtime director of teacher development at the studio. French said, “I purchased it Feb. 2. It’s very exciting and very scary. I’ve grown with Bonnie; we’ve grown together. I’m just going to continue what she started. It’s a natural transition. I’m really excited to be continuing what we’re doing and get the opportunity to grow the studio even more.” French was hired as an instructor in January 2008, seven months after the studio opened and shortly after she began teaching. “Bonnie came to a class I was teaching in Sarasota to see how I taught,” French said. “Apparently, she thought I did pretty good as a newbie.” Since that time, the studio has moved out of the small space in the Swiss Connections building into the large house on Sullivan Street. From a few small classes in the beginning, the number in season has now grown to 36 a week taught by 12 teachers. Workshops are frequent and often feature nationally known teachers. Students come from North Fort Myers and Cape Coral all the way up to North Port and Englewood. Thanks to the experience gained as Yonker’s sidekick all those years, French has easily settled into her new role. She’s not going to deviate from Yonker’s successful approach and is retaining a high-quality staff of teachers who want to share their love of yoga with their students. “Nothing is changing except that we’re going to grow, which would have happened anyway,” she said. “Things will grow as they have been growing, steady and slow so no one will even know. Students had a little anxiety when they heard Bonnie was selling, but everybody seems relaxed and laidback now.” French added, “The key to success is to make yoga practice accessible to everyone no matter where the person is physically or emotionally. We guide people into a situation that suits them best.” That requires incorporating newbies into the fold, and French is continuing to offer a $99 new-to-yoga package with a 1-hour private session and ve general classes. “In the private session, we put them at ease and also introduce them to yoga practice,” she said. “We nd out more about the student so we can get them in the right classes.” French seems remarkably unper turbed about taking on the more stressful role as studio owner and all the responsibilities that position entails. Perhaps it’s the calming inuence of her yoga practice, or maybe because ownership seems more like a natural progression than the chance of a lifetime. French mused, “When I was teaching, I was perfectly happy and would have worked for Bonnie until the day I stopped working. This is a natural step. Am I still happy? I’m perfectly happy; it’s all good.”YOGAFROM PAGE 1 PHOTO PROVIDEDBonnie Yonker cherishes the time she spends with daughter Maya.

Herald Page 8 Friday, March 6, 2015 ‘Short lms, also known as short subjects, are pretty much a thing of the past,” explains Doug LeClaire, founder of Asbury Short USA. “There are amazingly talented independent lm makers out there. That’s the reason we tour the country and show some of the best ones.” LeClaire will bring his traveling “concert” to the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center, 75 Taylor St., Punta Gorda, at 7 p.m. on March 11. The 90-minute program will showcase three independently produced short lms that won awards at various lm festivals. It is presented by the Charlotte Harbor Ofce of Film & Digital Media of the Charlotte Harbor & the Gulf Islands Visitors’ Bureau and sponsored by the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce. Tickets are $15. Winner of the “Best Narrative Short Film” at the 2014 Garden State Film Festival held in Atlantic City, New Jersey, “A Poet Long Ago” is a bittersweet drama about two former grammar school classmates who are reunited and begin recalling that time in their lives. The lm was directed Bob Giraldi, who has directed such movies as “Hiding Out,” “Dinner Rush” and “National Lampoon’s Movie Madness.” It stars Steve Schirripa from HBO’s “The Sopranos” and Boris McGiver, who appeared in HBO’s “The Wire.” “Death, Taxes and Apple Juice” has been described as a “wonderful charming short” and was the recipient of the Audience Choice Award at the 2012 Los Angeles Shorts Festival. The plot centers on a 9-year-old child sharing her troubles with her taxpayer. “Bye Bye Now” is an Irish short lm that tells the story of the vanishing phone booths in the country. According to Asbury Shorts USA, it is a “whimsical and often deeply personal account of how an iconic relic from the past has touched the lives of so many.” The lm was honored with the Audience Choice Award at the SILVERDOCS lm competition in the United States. “We just want the public to see a selection of some of the best short lms being made today,” LeClaire said. “This is not a competition. It’s a venue where people can relax and enjoy some great short lms.” For more information, call the Punta Gorda Chamber at 941-639-3720 or Nanette Leonard at 908-618-1776.

Contact her at Friday, March 6, 2015 Herald Page 9 It started with a trickle as summer turned to fall, and the signs became even more clear when fall turned to winter. Our winter residents, fondly called “snowbirds,” have ocked back to Southwest Florida, escaping a harsh winter of below-freezing temperatures and piles of snow. There’s an air of excitement around town when our northern friends return. Organizations that take the summer off start meeting again and planning the season’s events. Businesses expand their days and hours of operation. And with more people on the streets comes an inux of ideas and additional helping hands. Snowbirds appear to follow a fairly set migratory pattern year after year. Bernie Zayak and his wife, Jan, own and operate the Nuts Galore kiosk in Fishermen’s Village, 1200 W. Retta Esplanade, Punta Gorda, during the season. Every year in May they return to Michigan. “Business picked up Nov. 1, then dropped off after Thanksgiving,” which is typical, said Bernie, “and it picks up again in January.” We at the Punta Gorda Herald caught up with some recently landed snowbirds around town and coaxed their stories from them — when they got back, where their other homes are and what their plans are for this season. Marilyn Verney from New Hampshire and Frank Steffens from Maryland were spotted strolling through the farmers market at the Punta Gorda History Park one Sunday afternoon. Having just returned, Steffens was looking forward to the radio control sale at the college, while Verney was planning to read and enjoy the sunshine. This was the second winter that Joyce Golding and Cary Marsh came to the area from Michigan. When a friend of theirs passed away, they bought his home. Saying that moving here was “the best thing we ever did,” they were planning to do nothing but sit, enjoy the sunshine and perhaps go on a cruise. Janet and Wayne Lottman, joined by their dog Toby, are true snowbirds who got back in October and will be here until May. The part-time New Hampshire residents bought a home in Port Charlotte in 2003. One of their favorite things to do is shop at the farmers markets. Rita and Roger Stewart from Maryland bought a home in Port Charlotte eight years ago. Now that they’ve retired, they plan to make it their permanent home. “We love it here and are looking forward to living here full time,” the couple said. Ron and Nancy Brunelle split their time between Connecticut and Port Charlotte. “We’re looking forward to shopping at Fishermen’s Village, the restaurants, the weather and the sunshine,” they said. Sheila and Brian Bedford just bought a condo in Punta Gorda this fall. The couple spend half the year in Manchester, England. Having lived in a house in Venice for seven years, they were pleased to be coming back to a low-maintenance home from now on. They love that they can get up in the morning and see water, said Sheila. “We love that we can walk everywhere in Punta Gorda, and look forward to exploring the area,” she added. Ken and Mary Fair from Maryland were celebrating Mary’s birthday at Fishermen’s Village. Art and Paula Miller of Wauseon, Ohio, have spent the last four winter seasons in Punta Gorda. “We love the water, and we keep a boat at the Fishermen’s Village Marina,” said Paula. Dawn and Scott Sutter of Booth Bay Harbor, Maine, usually spend the winter in Hollywood, Florida. This was their rst time in Punta Gorda, and they were enjoying the quieter, more laid-back environment. Randy and Julie Becker are from central Illinois, or “downstate.” With family in Lakeland and North Port, they’ve been coming to the area for 20 years and moved here permanently in October. “We’re looking forward to fresh produce, the sunshine and no snow or ice.” Endless sunshine and lack of the cold white stuff are two of the most popular reasons our snowbirds come back to the area year after year. Whatever their reasons, we welcome them back with joy and open arms.Snowbirds enjoying sights of Charlotte County Barbara Bean-Mellinger PGH CorrespondentBarbara Bean-Mellinger is a freelance writer.

Herald Page 10 Friday, March 6, 2015 Jack Bacon labored for years writing ction about small-town environments and got nowhere. “I wasn’t getting any traction,” Bacon said. So about two years ago Bacon decided to try his hand at science ction. The result: the rst of a series of eight books — “The End of Days” — has been published by On the Write Path Publishing, a self-publishing company. It’s his rst time in print. The book tells the story of the evacuation of Mars because the planet is running out of atmosphere. Even though the people live in huge plastic domes built by the government following an asteroid strike, the domes no longer can save them. A lottery is used to choose the people who will board a starship to head out into space to nd a new planet that can sustain life. Earth is not an option because an asteroid has put it out of commission. The story revolves around the lives of those who were chosen and those who were not. Writing the book, he said, was “challenging because I had to create an environment on the planet Mars 11,000 years ago with people surviving in plastic domes because the atmosphere is thinning. You have to create the details that make it real.” Bacon knows that 77-year-old self-published science ction writers often can be viewed as, well, from the planet Mars. But he was able to sell the idea to his agent, Lisa Martin, and got to work. “I thought I’d try my hand at science ction because I’ve always been fascinated by it,” said Bacon. “As a kid, I was fascinated by astronomy, so it was always in the back of my mind to try science ction. “I sent my agent the manuscript for this book, and she liked it. She was amazed that I could shift genres so easily. I said to her, ‘Suppose I could write a series? Would that attract more attention?’ She suggested we try self-publishing for the rst of the series and see if we could get some traction.” Bacon writes for about 3 hours ve mornings a week and about an hour ve evenings a week. He takes off Friday evenings and all day Saturday and Sunday night. “For me, it’s important,” he said. “I like that” routine. “Honestly, if I sat down at that computer all day long, I’d shoot my self. I can only take 3 or 4 hours at a time.” Writing this book was not only a change in genres, it altered his technique. For the 14 years he wrote before taking on science ction, he was in the habit of writing about two pages, printing them, and then editing them before moving on. This, he said, amounted to an output of about 500 pages a year. With this book, he got so involved in what he was doing, he stopped printing out pages until he was nished. He was astonished that he began turning out about 1,400 pages a year. “I got so involved in what I was doing, I couldn’t stop,” he said. “I had something going.” Bacon lives in a secluded section of Punta Gorda with his wife of 54 years, Patt. He sports a full head of gray hair, a trim mustache and glasses. He keeps in shape by swimming twice a week. Writing science ction is “fun. It’s interesting as hell. But at the same time, it’s a challenge.” The book is available online at www. and in Punta Gorda at Coppersh Books, 1205 Elizabeth St., Suite A; Sandman Book Company, 16480 Burnt Store Road; and the Punta Gorda Library, 424 W. Henry St.Science-fiction writer launches series HERALD PHOTO BY RUSTY PRAYJack Bacon sits at his desk in his Punta Gorda home, where he wrote “The End of Days” and the other seven books in the science-ction series.

Contact her at janinehs1@ The following excerpts are from the Daily Herald-News from March 1, 1975, through March 7, 1975:State officials aid in Warm Mineral Springs researchState dignitaries joined Dr. William A. “Sonny” Cockrell and his state-sponsored research diving team at Warm Mineral Springs this week. They are exploring underwater ledges and caves where important archaeological discoveries were made last year. Secretary of State Bruce Smathers; his wife, Nancy; Sen. Warren Henderson; and Rep. Robert Johnson donned diving outts with Cockrell to make a dive to a 60-foot level. Smathers said, “This is a unique and wonderful archaeological site. It is probably the only place in the world where such ancient artifacts have been found so well preserved.” The state has $40,000 allocated for continued underwater research during the next scal year. The diving team included Col. Bill Royal, the pioneer of the Warm Mineral Springs digs, and Larry Murphy, an underwater camera man. The search lasted 40 minutes, and every action was recorded. Divers rst visited the cave at the 45-foot level, where the skull of a Native American was found last year. It was radio carbon dated at 10,240 years old. Then they descended to the 65-foot level, where they viewed stalactites formed when the cave was above water thousands of years ago. Everyone was impressed with the clarity. Back on the surface, Cockrell showed the visitors a 40-centimeter sample taken from the digs. “It represents 2,000 years of Florida history,” Cockrell said. “The Warm Mineral Springs’ pond is an underwater museum where explorations should go on forever.”Tourism campaign issues stickersThe new “We are Friendly Floridians” stickers are the rst part of a campaign by the State Chamber of Commerce to emphasize that the No. 1 ingredient of the state’s tax basis is tourism. This was announced by George Nanna, manager of the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce. A second phase of the campaign will be held, entitled “Share the Sunshine.” It is hoped that this is going to create a change in attitude after the energy crisis of the recent past.Phosphate spillsWe share and appreciate Rep. Fred Burrall’s reaction in the latest phosphate spill into the Peace River. When Burrall was editor of the Daily Herald-News, he frequently protested the spills and urged corrections of their causes. The Peace River, one of the last unpolluted rivers in the state of Florida, is in perpetual risk from the big phosphate companies up around Lakeland that pollute its waters. Rep. Paul Nuckols has joined Burrall in ensuring that “something will be done” in the next legislature.Today in history — March 6 In 1894: New York became the rst state to pass a law requiring that dogs be licensed.

HERALD PHOTO BY SERGIO ALBARRACINCharlotte High School student Tamra Crystal has been a fan since the rst season of “Glee” premiered. She was in the seventh-grade.Ever since the rst television set came out, American society has become increasingly more interested in viewing shows while at home. Different channels have different themes and their own unique shows, with TV shows ranging from action-packed thrillers to comedies. Many people dedicate themselves to a certain show and watch it any chance they get. Tamra Crystal, a senior at Charlotte High School, regularly watches TV throughout the week, often “binge” watching her favorite shows. Crystal’s favorite shows are “Glee” and “American Horror Story.” However, she said “Glee” is No. 1 to her. When asked what she would do if Glee was canceled mid-season, Crystal replied, “I would cry and I would watch it from the beginning over and over again.” Bruce Supan, a senior at Charlotte High, watches TV at least once a day whenever he has the opportunity. He prefers “shows with a lot of action” over any other genre. “The Walking Dead” is at the top of his list. When asked what he would do if the show was canceled, Supan answered, “I’d just stop watching TV.” TV can really affect people as they become emotionally attached to their favorite shows and characters.Students tune in, enjoy TV showsBy SERGIO ALBARRACINCHS SENIORCONTRIBUTORSTarpon Page contributors are students at Charlotte High School.

Friday, March 6, 2015 Herald Page 15 The Charlotte High School junior varsity wrestlers faced Venice High School in the season-ending match on Feb. 18. The team from Punta Gorda used a balanced attack to bring home its ninth win of the season with a score of 51-12. The only blemish on Charlotte’s 9-1 record came during a match with Riverdale High School. Michael Schebel started the match with a forfeit win, and Robert Lencsak picked up six more points after a pin with 22 seconds left in the match. Charlotte’s Eli Cooper got stuck putting the rst Indian points on the board. A forfeit at 126 pounds tied the match at 12. Elijah Noel ran his season record to 15-3, as he and Trevor Hohne planted their opponents to take a 24-12 lead. Jonathan McCabe won 9-5 at 145 pounds and Anthony Marcoguiseppe took just over a minute to put his opponent on his back to run the score up to 33-12. Austin Wise won 10-4 in the 160-pound category. “I beat him by about the same number of points at the North Port tournament a couple of weeks ago,” Wise said. Nathan McCann nearly duplicated Wise’s score with his 10-5 win in the 182-pound category to make the score 39-12. McCann scored a takedown at the buzzer at the end of the first and second periods to seal the win for the Tarpons. Jack Palmer, who is in the 195-pound category, and his opponent danced into a scoreless first period. With Palmer leading 5-2 after two periods, the Venice wrestler got an early escape and they again danced for the final 1:40 of the match. Palmer took him down at the buzzer for a 7-3 win. Tyler Midkiff used a head-and-bone maneuver for a quick pin. Midkiff wrestled in the 220-pound weight class despite weighing just 185. Brian Ireland ended the match with a well fought 6-3 win. He is 2-0 against his opponent, winning the first time on a last-second reversal.

Charlotte won the season-ending match on Feb. 18 with a score of 51-12. Steve Knapp Sports WriterSteve Knapp is a sports writer and photographer. Contact him at PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG H H H SPORTS Although it was Valentine’s Day, the Charlotte High School junior varsity softball team showed no love for its opponents in the JV Wars Softball Tournament. Charlotte outscored its opponents 59-3, winning all three of its games. Even with that impressive offensive assault, it could have been much worse had the Tarpon coaches not taken their foot off the gas during the games. After a 28-3 win over Lely High School, Immokalee High School was shut out 16-0. The final game was also a whitewash, with Baron Collier High School going scoreless at 15-0. All of the games ended with the mercy rule. The tournament attracted six teams with three teams pulling out because of a lack of players due to early season injuries. All proceeds from the tournament will go toward supporting the Tarpon softball program. Varsity coach Greg Higgins said, “We played at DeSoto (County High School) last week and they have a new coach and he said he didn’t know about it, but said he wants to get in next year. The same thing with Port Charlotte — they also have a new coach. I can easily see it back to 12 teams like it usually is with two divisions.”Tarpons win JV Wars tournament Gabby Innello and Kristin Knowlton show their championship T-shirts. The Charlotte High School junior varsity softball team played in a JV Wars tourney on Feb. 14. Charlotte went 3-0 to claim the champion ship.HERALD PHOTOS BY STEVE KNAPPCharlotte High School freshman Kristen Macomber drops a bunt in the 16-0 win over Immokalee High School.
