CALL US AT 941-206-1000 Marty Bateman was somewhat wary when his mother told him she had a voice mail message from James Kennedy at Publishers Clearinghouse. The 62-year-old Port Charlotte resident said his mother told him Kennedy informed her she had nished second in the national sweepstakes with a $100,000 prize, leaving his phone number starting with an 876 area code. Marty’s suspicions were conrmed when I alerted him area code 876 is from Jamaica. Along with 649 (Turks and Caicos), 809 (Dominican Republic) and 284 (British Virgin Islands), these area codes are assigned by the North American Numbering Plan Administration. But scammers in these Caribbean countries are counting on the fact that those returning calls believe they’re coming from the U.S. The FCC explains calls made to these area codes are charged expensive inter national call rates and possible additional pay-per-call services. In particular, the Better Business Bureau warns that the 876 Jamaica area code is one of the most common for telemarketing scams. The takeaway here: Do a quick online check to verify the origin of any unfamiliar area code before calling it. Then report fraudulent calls to the Federal Trade Commission at 877-FTC-HELP (382-4357). If Marty’s mother had returned this call, Publishers Clearing House explains she most likely would have been instructed to send money to claim a bogus prize. But PCH says it never asks for money to present a prize, and its “no purchase necessary” message is prominently displayed in all promotional mailers. Other versions of this scam involve getting a real-looking advance check to cover legal and insurance fees before the full winning PCH prize check is issued. However, like all fake check scams, the deposited check bounces, and you’re out your own money sent for the fees. “If you win a major prize in our sweepstakes, our PCH Prize Patrol will contact you in person,” explains PCH. “For smaller prizes, winners are notied by overnight delivery services or certied mail.” PCH also doesn’t send out emails, text messages or communicate through social media like Facebook. “Despite widespread publicity, crooks still duped many thousands of people into believing they'd won a lottery fortune and then paying a fortune to try to get their winnings,” explains Scambusters (, ranking lotteries and sweepstakes second in its 2014 scam report. While the mantra, “if you didn’t enter, you can’t win,” obviously applies to the PCH sweepstakes, so many people actually enter between Feb. 18 and April 21, being contacted now doesn’t raise as many suspicions. Remember, “legitimate sweepstakes don’t make you pay a fee or buy something to enter or improve your chances of win ning,” reminds the FTC. “A skills contest where you do things like solve problems or answer questions correctly can ask you to pay. But these contests also tend to get more difcult and expensive as you advance, leaving contestants with nothing to show for their money and effort.” Finally, the FTC cautions if you sign up for a contest or drawing, odds are you’ll most likely get more promotional mail, telemarketing calls, or spam email instead of a prize.

Bike Day, served up every Friday along with pizza, is just one of the special offerings made possible for almost 100 children with the addition of two triple-wide modulars that provide six classrooms for infant and preschool care. These classrooms allowed the YMCA to expand its extended day care center to meet community needs. “We were maxed out,” YMCA CEO Randy Dunn said of the old facility at Franz Ross Park, known as the Little Red Schoolhouse, which had served as the child care center since Hurricane Charley in 2004. But with the generous contributions of the Selby Foundation in Sarasota and local philanthropist Hildegard Burns, the organization was able to purchase the two buildings for around $200,000. The new classrooms debuted at the end of last year and boast 87 current enrollees who attend from 6:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. “Day care is more expensive today than college tuition,” Dunn said. “We provide a safe learning place that is incomebased and affordable.” In fact, the Charlotte County Y is the community’s largest child care provider, serving 250 children full time daily and totaling about 600 kids per day at child development centers throughout the county. During the summer camps this number swells to more than 800 children welcomed per day. And many youngsters attend on scholarship. Last year the Y raised $140,000 during its annual Community Kids Campaign, with another year’s drive kicking off last month. Filling out the 2014 scholarship total of $280,000 were donations from major partners such as YMCA child care center expands at Franz Ross ParkBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERYMCA | 10 NORTH PORT — North Port’s Community Health Action Team had its monthly meeting Wednesday, and community members already were nding ways to help with what new Chairman Sam George said is one of the area’s most pressing issues right now: veterans’ medical needs. “The spotlight is on the VA (Veteran Affairs) system right now nationally,” said George, who has held the chairman post previously. “The main area they feel underwhelmed with is mental health.” George said he has spoken with many veter ans, including homeless veterans, in the area about how CHAT can help with their continuing medical needs. CHATs, as local nonprot organizations, are groups focused on improving the health of a specic community, and they identify and research health issues facing the community, according to the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County’s website.Many of the veterans, according to George, said the greatest need is for more therapists.

It didn’t last long, as Moore was abruptly awakened when someone called out to her that the second oor of their rental was on re. The Illinois couple are renting the ground-oor of a two-story house at 1775 Manor Road on a nger canal. Located at the corner of Manor Road and Placida Road, Skip’s Placida Marina and Shippey Marine Services owners Skip Warmack and Chuck Shippey — as well as their employees and neighbors — responded to the re before reghters arrived. Englewood Area Fire Control District Battalion Chief Al Sardina said the re district received the 911 call at 2:53 p.m. The re was limited to the second oor, climbing an eave, but did not spread to the roof. “The building was saved and the re was contained to the outside wall,” Sardina said.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C The Sun /Friday, March 13, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS SARASOTA COUNTY — Ron Turner, chief of staff for Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Kathy Dent, is the rst to throw his hat in the ring for his boss’ job. Dent conrmed last week that she will not be seeking re-election in 2016 after holding the seat since 2000. Turner, 46, has served as Dent’s right hand for the last four years and was previously the elections supervisor in DeSoto County, as well as an Arcadia city councilman. Turner was also deputy chief of staff and district director for U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Sarasota. He is the rst candidate to le for the position. “I have nearly 10 years of elections administration experience,” he said Thursday. “I just feel very passionate about the right to vote and the election process.” Turner, a Republican from Sarasota, said he will try to avoid getting caught up in the politics that his predecessor attempted to, but couldn’t avoid. Dent, a Republican, took ofce while Florida was under scrutiny during the infamous 2000 presidential election and subsequent recounts. In 2006, she came under re for a large undervote count for the 13th Congressional District seat. After a recount and legal wrangling, Buchanan was declared the winner over Democrat Christine Jennings by just 369 votes. In 2012 she was accused of trying to inuence voters in one election and for not conducting a recount in another. The accusations came from political opponents and Dent was never ofcially accused of any wrongdoing. If elected, Turner — who held the DeSoto elections supervisor post during the 2000 presidential election — said he won’t let politics get it the way of doing his job. “The duties of the supervisor of elections are laid out by state statutes,” he said. “There really needs to be that focus, to not get distracted.” His priority, he said, is to ensure efcient and transparent elections. Sarasota County Republican Party Chairman Joe Gruters said he expected someone from Dent’s staff, most likely Turner, to step up for the position. “He’s good candidate, well-liked all around,” he said. “He has the experience, the right personality. I would be surprised if anyone even ran against him.” Dent’s chief of staff files for elections supervisor postBy CLINTON BURTONSARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR TURNER PORT CHARLOTTE — While deputies were typing up reports Wednesday evening at the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Ofce substation at the Promenades Mall, they heard a commotion from one of the interview rooms where a suspect was waiting to be jailed. They investigated and saw the detainee had climbed onto a desk, removed a ceiling tile and was trying to pull himself into the opening, the sheriff’s report shows. One of the deputies asked Donald Lewis St. James what he was doing, and the man jumped down and said he was just trying to get warm. St. James had been arrested earlier in the day after a car he was a pas senger in was pulled over because the driver wasn’t wearing a seat belt. During a search of the vehicle, authorities allegedly found opiates in a folding mirror that allegedly belonged to St. James. The 33-year-old was arrested on charges of possession of opiates, possession of drug paraphernalia and violation of probation, which he was on after being found guilty of drug charges in January. Wednesday’s investigation further revealed that $1,200 worth of jewelry found in the car belonged to St. James’ roommate’s wife, which St. James had stolen and planned to bring to a pawn shop, the CCSO report states. St. James was additionally charged with grand theft and trafcking in stolen property. For his antics in the interview room, where he was taken for questioning in the theft case, the suspect was charged with attempted escape — a second-degree felony — and criminal mischief, since he reportedly broke the ceiling tile he removed to try and get away. Authorities said a new tile would cost the agency $5. St. James, of the 3400 block of Westlund Terrace in Port Charlotte, was being held Thursday in the Charlotte County Jail without bond.Local men among those charged in sex caseMANATEE COUNTY — Fourteen men, including one from North Port and one from Port Charlotte, have been arrested by undercover ofcers targeting people looking to have sex with children, according to the Manatee County Cops: Man tried to escape through ceiling | POLICE BEATThe information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriff’s office, Florida Highway Patrol, jail and fire records.

During the Council of Governments meeting Thursday in Sarasota, Malone reported six hospitals in Florida have contributed $800 million in taxes to the federal government. “Some lawmakers expressed they don’t want to get in bed with the federal government,” she said. “If Florida doesn’t expand Medicaid, we all will be faced with a $1.3 billion loss.” Safety-net hospitals such as Sarasota Memorial would lose $12.5 million in federal funding. “We (SMH) already write off $100 million a year (in unpaid services — some generated from the North Port ER on Toledo Blade Boulevard),” she said. “What we are trying to get lawmakers to understand is we are paying taxes to the federal government and, instead of getting Medicaid dollars back, our share is going to another state. At the end of this debate, we have money invested we might not be getting back.” Malone said local delegates understand the impact to Sarasota County, which includes more than 15,000 residents and 30,000 in the region. However Florida plans to launch an alternative plan for Medicaid which will require a co-pay, similar to the one in Indiana. Malone said some lawmakers still are saying the state House isn’t going to approve any plan with federal government funding. “I don’t know how they can be so cavalier about such a huge issue now that we are a couple of months away from being cut off of federal funds,” she said. “There are some that say they don’t want to take the gamble of only having the (Medicaid funds for people earning up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level) for only three years.” In order for Florida to create an alternative plan (dubbed the Shared Savings Program), the federal government rst must grant a waiver, according to the Affordable Care Act guidelines. Fewer than 30 states have opted to expand Medicaid. Of those, Indiana, Michigan, New Hampshire and Iowa received federal waivers to create alternative expansions. Tuesday, a Florida Senate committee unanimously approved a bill accepting federal funds for a Medicaid-expansion alternative. SB 7044 would expand private insurance coverage to qualifying individuals making between 100 per cent and 138 percent of the federal poverty level. Under the plan, about 1 million adults, with children in Florida who qualify for benets, would receive federal money to help with the cost of private insurance. Participants also must have a job or be in school to meet the program’s criteria. Also during the meeting — attended by government representatives from the cities of North Port, Sarasota, Venice and Longboat Key, as well as Sarasota County; and held at city of Sarasota ofces — North Port City Commissioner Cheryl Cook said she was watching legislation that would require municipalities, preplatted cities and counties to pay for the relocation of utilities. With new construction booming, if the bill passes, it could cost the city of North Port thousands of dollars more for road projects. “I’d like to bring it to everybody’s attention that this is extremely important,” Cook said. “We (North Port) has the most to lose. We are expanding and have preplatted communities. We are forming a contingency so we can speak when we go up (to Tallahassee) next week.” Assistant North Port City Manager Danny Schult reported the city reached an agreement with the American Federal State County Municipal Employees blue collar union. He said negotiations continue with the city’s police and re unions. “I don’t know if I see an end in sight, but I always hope for the best,” Schult said. Sarasota County Administrator Tom Harmer said the county reached an agreement with the Teamsters Union, but not with the re or transit unions. County Commission Chairwoman Carolyn Mason said she would encourage any residents who didn’t make it to Tuesday’s opening of the $18 million Emergency Operations Center off Cattleman Road in Sarasota to do so in the future. The building is designed to withstand winds of more than 200 miles per hour. She said the 2014 annual report is out for county residents to see where tax dollars are spent through different budgets, the bond rating, and a list of 32 citizen advisory boards on which residents can serve to provide input. According to the report, 2014 was the rst year since 2008 that the taxable property values increased, which resulted in a 4.1 percent increase to the county’s largest source of general revenue — property taxes. This happened while the county maintained the second-lowest millage rate in Florida.Email: eallen@sun-herald.comConcerns brewing over loss of Medicaid dollarsBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHCOMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR PHOTO PROVIDED BY KATHY O’BRIEN Below: Knights of Columbus Council 7672 sponsored the Senior Prom at St. Francis of Assisi Parish Center in Grove City.

Our Town Page 6 E/N/C The Sun /Friday, March 13, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA — Mayor Carolyn Freeland announced this week she will not seek re-election in November for the District 3 seat on the City Council. The two-term city lawmaker announced her decision in an email newsletter to constituents in which she pledged to continue working hard for the city’s interests. “As much as I have enjoyed working with my colleagues on council and city staff, and serving as your Mayor this year,” Freeland wrote, “I will not seek re-election in November. I will, of course, continue to do all that I can between now and November to ensure we continue the momentum of the past several years in making Punta Gorda a vibrant waterfront community, unique in character and history, and one of the most desirable places to live, work and visit.” The 68-year-old Punta Gorda Isles resident this year wraps up her second, two-year term in ofce; she was sworn in to the City Council in November 2011 succeeding longtime city councilman Larry Friedman. Prior to her election, Freeland served as president of the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association, executive director of the Charlotte Community Foundation, and partner in the Washington, D.C.-based association-management rm SmithBucklin. She said she thought she knew a lot about the city before taking ofce. But it took awhile to really learn “the ins and outs” from city staffers, she said: “It was much more time than I expected.” After a full four years, the time has come to slow down and pursue other interests with her husband, Freeland said. “Life is short and Tom and I are looking forward to the next chapter in our lives,” she said. “We want to spend more time together and with our family members (who) are all over the country. It’s hard to see everybody.” Freeland said she wanted to let the public know of her intentions early in the year so that prospective candidates can begin organizing their campaigns. So far, no one has expressed interest in running. “The paperwork for candidates will be due in the City Clerk’s ofce in June, but those who are interested in running for District 3 seat will undoubtedly want to begin their campaign activity in April or May,” she said. “Hence, my decision to let you know now.” Meanwhile, city council member Nancy Prafke conrmed she would be seeking re-election in November. Prafke was sworn-in to a two-year term in 2013 after edging out opponent Charlie Counsil for the District 5 seat.

Record highs at this time of year in the area are between 88 and 90 degrees, according to maximum temperatures taken at Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, said Rick Davis, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. The normal high is 80 degrees, but it has been 5 to 10 degrees higher than normal this week, due to “high pressure over the area,” he said. Davis said Sarasota technically tied the record Wednesday with a high of 88 degrees, but the record has not been beaten yet. Warmer temperatures may beat the record this weekend, or may come close to it again. Mostly sunny skies are expected through the weekend, but there is a slight chance of rain in the afternoons. Partly cloudy nights are expected, with lows in the midto upper 60s. Highs should be in the midto upper 80s Friday inland, though temperatures may reach only the lower 80s in the beach areas. Saturday, the high is expected to be in the midto upper 80s again. But Sunday, highs should reach only the mid-80s, instead of the upper 80s. “The high pressure starts to weaken a little bit on Sunday, so it’s not as warm,” Davis said.Email: sbrokaw@sun-herald.comWarmer weather expected this weekendBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITERSpring Arts and Crafts ShowSarasota County Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources will play host to the annual Spring Arts and Crafts Show from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Englewood Sports Complex, 1300 S.

The Sun /Friday, March 13, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. Sheriff’s Ofce. Imran Ahmed Siddiqi, 31, of North Port, is charged with traveling to solicit/seduce/entice a minor for sex and attempted lewd and lascivious battery. Jesse Wilkes, 28, of Port Charlotte, is charged with nine counts of transmission of materials harmful to minors and two counts of use of a computer to solicit, lure or entice a minor for sex. He was ar rested at his home on the 1200 block of Sandy Street on Thursday by Charlotte County Sheriff’s deputies serving the Manatee warrant. The arrests are part of Operation Green Shepherd IV, according to a news release. It is at least the fourth such operation led by Manatee authorities in recent years. According to the release, detectives went online in undercover capacities and subsequently set up meetings with the defendants at various public locations around Manatee County. The defendants went to the location believing they were meeting up with a juvenile for a sexual encounter, ofcials said. Those arrested face charges that include traveling to seduce, solicit or entice a child to commit a sexual act, use of a computer to seduce, solicit or entice a child to commit a sexual act and attempted lewd and lascivious battery. Other law agencies assisting with the oper ation were the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, sheriff’s ofces in Polk, Pinellas, Hardee, Citrus, Hernando, Lake and Lee counties; and police departments in St. Petersburg, Sanford, Sarasota and Punta Gorda.Accused murderer wants appealPUNTA GORDA — Dwayne Johnson wants to appeal a judge’s decision to not dismiss a murder charge against him, according to a handwritten letter sent by the defendant to the court this week. Johnson is being held in the Charlotte County Jail while he awaits trial on a second-degree murder charge related to the September shooting death of Kello Bonhomme. The accused had asked a judge to toss out the mur der charge — and charges in two unrelated cases — because a privileged video-chat conversation between him and his attorney, Assistant Public Defender Toby Oonk, was recorded and sent by jail staff to prosecutors. At the least, Johnson had asked to have the prosecutors removed from the case. Twentieth Circuit Judge George Richards decided earlier this month that the case has not been hindered because the recording was created and sent by accident, and the prosecutor who viewed it turned it off before hearing any of the conversation between Johnson and Oonk. In Johnson’s letter, dated March 9, he wants to appeal Richard’s decision before going to trial, which, court documents show, is scheduled to begin March 23. Johnson also writes that he is concerned about how the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Ofce handled an internal investigation into the issue of privileged conver sations being recorded. There is a criminal hearing in Johnson’s murder case set for today, but records don’t specify what will be discussed.Four arrested in drug house bustVENICE — Police executed a search warrant Wednesday at a Venice home allegedly being used for drug sales, and owned by a man already on probation from drug charges last year, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Ofce. Authorities said James P. Merchant, 42; Edward K. Krug, 47; Kristina Marie Norris, 31; and Joshua Wayne Thomas, 34, all living at the 700 block of Everest Road, Venice, were arrested after county detectives bought methamphetamine undercover several times at the residence from Merchant during February. A report states police received a citizen’s complaint that Merchant was still selling drugs from his home in February. After obtaining a warrant, police found a brown box in Merchant’s bedroom that had several small baggies with what, after testing, ended up being meth. Police also arrested Krug, Norris and Thomas after searching their bedrooms and nding drugs and paraphernalia. According to the report, several baggies with meth and a marijuana pipe were found in Kruger’s dresser. The weight of the meth was less than .1 grams, the report states. Authorities said they also found a marijuana pipe, several small baggies with meth residue and a scale used to weigh drugs. Norris admitted to the detectives that she and her boyfriend, Thomas, are meth users, the report shows. Merchant was supposed to be serving probation until December 2016 after pleading guilty in December 2014 to selling meth and hydromor phone. According to the report, the three others arrested and living in his home also had prior drug arrests. All remain at the Sarasota County Jail, the report states. Merchant was charged with violation of probation, maintaining a nuisance property and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held without bond. Krug was charged with possession of meth and drug paraphernalia and is being held on $2,000 bond. Norris and Thomas were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and are being held on $500 bond each.

Most people feel that they do not and that is one of the reasons that voter turnout is so poor in the U.S. Here is an opportunity to change that. We the people could demand a national referendum to vote on term limits for our inept Congress. We all know they will not impose such a limit on themselves. Social media allows us to contact millions of like-minded Americans and ask them if they agree to contact others. Soon we could all have an opportunity to have a real voice to limit politicians to terms just like the president. Two terms and out. No long-term career politi cians who poison our democracy. If you think term limits are a good idea why not start now and contact all your friends, family and ask them to do the same? Isn’t it about time we put our foot down and put career politicians out of business? If you really believe in democracy, do it now.Cli Rocque Port CharlotteEditor: Some fables: Once upon a time in a far away country not so long ago, a charismatic leader was elected during chaotic economic times with a promise of change. After gaining power, the military was stripped of those who disagreed with its objectives. Criticism of the government ideology wasn’t tolerated from the media or church leaders’ preachings. Opposing political groups were targeted. When things didn’t change for the better, a distraction was needed. A night of terror happened. Buildings burned and property was destroyed. A segment of society was blamed and made scapegoats for all society’s ills. Some people cheered, many did nothing. The reign nally ended. Sadly, though, the country never was “a shining city on the hill” again. Once there were people of a Editor: Let us show sympathy for those poor, brainwashed people who think Fox is an unbiased, truthful news source. We know they need their daily dose of Fox reporters tell them what they want to hear. They are reinforced as to why they should hate Obama, Muslims, gays and immigrants. They are convinced the Republican Party is the righteous party because of their opposition to same-sex marriage and other exaggerated biblical interpretations. Hopefully, some will see the light after hearing a few facts: From the Internet: “Former Fox News host Eric Burns described the network’s audience as a “cult.” “Their audience loyalty soared. And so O’Reilly, as the head of the cult, is not held to the same standards as Brian Williams.” “No one expects much out of O’Reilly as a Fox News host,” Burns said. “No one expects the truth. He’s been caught in numerous lies, and those have never been a story.” “O’Reilly has been under re for being caught lying or exaggerating about stories he reported on over the course of his long career.” Fox is by far the worst for distorting news; however, other newscasters distort and slant their broadcasts. Wouldn’t it be great to have a channel that would report unbiased news, without opinions?Hank Pruitt Port CharlotteEditor: It’s a good thing Florida has warm weather, great sand beaches, and super saltand freshwater shing. These features have kept us coming back here from up north for 20 years. I would remind the readers of this missive that the people of Florida have nothing to do with these attributes. They are all God-given. Having said that, there are several things in Florida that are undesirable. Your schools rank among the worst in the nation. You have an electorate that is predominately Democrat and yet through gerrymandering and redistricting you have Republican governance. To add insult to injury, your governor now forbids state ofcials from using “inappropriate” language in describing human-assisted climate change.Rick Richter Port CharlotteEditor: I have been somewhat encouraged by the steady economic progress of our country after the recession; it has been the best in the world. But I am totally disgusted by the traitorous behavior prevailing among those who insist on trying to destroy our president by any means, even if it also destroys our country. It is not a Editor: I read the letter from the lady who got hung up on a truck tire. She said that she could not see it, as she is too short. If you can’t see the road in front of you, then you should not be driving. I have driven from coast to coast in Canada and the U.S., Britain and Australia and must say that Florida has the worst drivers I have ever encountered. Very few drivers know what a stop sign means. They have no idea what signal lights and rear view mirrors are for. Red lights are only for Christmas decorations. They should employ a few dozen police strictly for trafc violators. Ross Pratt Punta GordaEditor: Re: Climate-change muzzle? Let’s put aside the talk of climate change for a moment and talk jobs. Our governor and members of Congress are all for creating jobs. There is a legislative proposal that would add 2.1 million jobs to the economy over the next decade without the federal government having to spend a cent. This proposal also would reduce greenhouse gas emissions to levels that could avert the most severe consequences of climate change. This proposal is referred to as the George Shultz Carbon Fee and Dividend (named after Ronald Reagan’s secretary of state). The plan works like this, according to the Citizens’ Climate Lobby: A steadily rising fee, starting at $15 per ton of carbon-dioxide, is placed on fossil fuels near the rst point of sale, increasing by $10 per ton of CO2 each year. Revenue from the fee is divided up equally and returned to all households. Border adjustment tariffs are placed on imports from nations that do not have carbon-pricing mechanisms to maintain a level playing eld. One study found that after 10 years, CO2 emissions would be cut 33 percent and 2.1 million jobs would be added to the economy, primarily because of the economic stimulus of recycling revenue to people who are likely to spend the money. This is good news: We can cut carbon emissions while adding millions of jobs to our economy, but we need to pass the legislation. William (Coty) Keller Port CharlotteEditor: I assume the recent trip to Washington, D.C., by three of our city commissioners was paid for by the city of North Port. I’m sure the cost was worth it. No doubt about it, attending the National League of Cities Congressional City Conference will help three of our commissioners to do a great job here in North Port. For those commissioners who didn’t get to go, take heart. You might be able to go to the next one. This fall, the meeting will be held in Seattle. The two main topics will be: Using the beautiful and inspir ing palmetto palm in landscaping in home and business lawns, and in playgrounds and water parks. The second topic will cover, “How to protect our state bird, the ever-loving love bug from extinction,” and will cover topics like, Reduce Speed Limits on Federal, State, County and City streets and highways. How to apply CPR to injured bugs. The care and feeding of pet love bugs. This will surely be a popular expense to our fair city. We don’t need all that money. All is well and great here in North Port. Bye yo, Silver, away.Bill Timm North PortCreating bridge to solid groundThroughout this country, an estimated 3 million people have chronic hepatitis C, a virus that progressively damages the liver, degrades health and can lead to early death. Most ar en’t even aware they are carrying the virus. The devastating effects of the disease and the expense of treatment led Dr. David Klein and Dr. Mark Asperilla to set up the Charlotte County Hepatitis C Clinic two years ago. The rst of its kind in Florida, the clinic treated 65 patients in 2014, 55 of whom experienced the success of remission. “It’s a horrible disease. It’s extremely contagious, way more contagious than AIDS,” Dr. Klein told Sun staff reporter Gary Roberts last month. But, he added: “This disease is treatable. Imagine having a fatal disease where it can be treated but you don’t have the money or insurance, so, sorry, you’re going to die.” The biggest problem is cost: Successful treatment can run up to $30,000 per patient and can take up to six months. The Hep C Clinic is struggling to stay aoat. Initial funding has run low and the Virginia B. Andes Clinic in Port Charlotte has applied for a grant from a large national organization to keep it going. Meanwhile, it needs an infusion and Klein this week asked the Charlotte County Commission for help. Commissioners were sympathetic and seemed to be leaning toward a contribution of, perhaps, $50,000. It’s the right thing to do. Over the long term, a solid outside funding source will be necessary. But local taxpayers can be the bridge needed to get to that point. Klein said 150 people were awaiting clinic services now, so the need is there. Charlotte County withdrew $100,000 in local funding from the Health Department when the state ir responsibly dropped direct-care services last year. So some funding is available. We are blessed to have such points of light as Klein and Asperilla in our community. The compassion and commitment they — and their many colleagues — have shown to the health and welfare of the needy is remarkable, a true model for exemplary service. The challenge facing the rest of us is to meet the high standard they’ve set. How can we not? An honor well-earnedA tip of the hat to Wayne Applebee, Sarasota County’s director of homeless services, who was recently named “Public Citizen of the Year” by an area social workers group. The recognition is well-deserved. In the past two years, Applebee has been point man in the campaign to institute a more effective system for serving the large homeless population in Sarasota County. His plan is to enact the recommendations in the community plan drawn up under the direction of consultant Robert Marbut. The result has been the creation of homeless family shelters in Sarasota and North Port, as well as a coordinated social service system that helps restore stability to individuals’ lives. While many others have contributed to successes so far, Applebee’s positive leadership, his knowledge and understanding of a complicated problem, and his ability to communicate with different segments of the community have served us well. He has helped made this a better place for everyone to live. radical ideology that amassed a huge army. Intending to destroy those who did not share their views, some wanted to develop catastrophic weapons to wipe their adversaries out. Many in the world were silent. After threats became so egregious it required steps to be taken to stop them. There were the appeasers saying, “don’t worry we can all get along.” There were those who warned about the dangers. Appeasement won. A foolish deal was made. Almost immediately it was violated. Those who warned were proved to be right, but it was too late. All did not turn out well.

The Sun /Friday, March 13, 2015 E/N/C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINTFifty years ago this month, Democrats made a historic mistake. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, at the time a federal ofcial, wrote a famous report in March 1965 on family breakdown among AfricanAmericans. He argued presciently and powerfully that the rise of single-parent households would make poverty more intractable. “The fundamental problem,” Moynihan wrote, is family breakdown. In a follow-up, he explained: “From the wild Irish slums of the 19th-century Eastern seaboard, to the riot-torn suburbs of Los Angeles, there is one unmistakable lesson in American history: a community that allows large numbers of young men to grow up in broken families never acquir ing any stable relationship to male authority, never acquiring any set of rational expectations about the future — that community asks for and gets chaos.” Liberals brutally denounced Moynihan as a racist. He himself had grown up in a single-mother household and worked as a shoeshine boy at the cor ner of Broadway and 43rd Street in Manhattan, yet he was accused of being aloof and patronizing, and of “blaming the victim.” “My major criticism of the report is that it assumes that middle-class American values are the correct values for every one in America,” protested Floyd McKissick, then a prominent black civil rights leader. The liberal denunciations of Moynihan were terribly unfair. In fact, Moynihan emphasized that slavery, discrimination and “three centuries of injustice” had devastated the black family. He favored job and education programs to help buttress the family. But the scathing commentary led President Lyndon Johnson to distance himself from the Moynihan report. Scholars, fearful of being accused of racism, mostly avoided studying family structure and poverty. In 1992, Vice President Dan Quayle stepped into the breach by emphasizing the role of the family in addressing poverty, including a brief reference to Murphy Brown, a tele vision character who was a single mom. Liberals rushed to ridicule Quayle for sexism and outdated moralism, causing politicians to tread this ground ever more carefully. The taboo on careful research on family structure and poverty was broken by William Julius Wilson, an eminent black sociologist. He has praised Moynihan’s report as “a prophetic document,” for evidence is now overwhelming that family structure matters a great deal for low-income children of any color. In 2013, 71 percent of black children in America were born to an unwed mother, as were 53 per cent of Hispanic children and 36 percent of white children. Indeed, a single parent is the new norm. At some point before they turn 18, a majority of all U.S. children will likely live with a single mom and no dad. My point isn’t to cast judgment on nontraditional families, for single parents can be as loving as any. In fact, when one parent is abusive, the child may be better off raised by the other parent alone. And well-off kids often get plenty of support whether from one parent or two. One kind of nontraditional household does particularly well. One study found that children raised by same-sex couples excelled by some measures, apparently because the parents doted on their children — most gay couples don’t have unwanted children whom they neglect. Yet Moynihan was absolutely right to emphasize the consequences for low-income children of changing family structure. Partly because there is often only one income coming into a single-par ent household, children of unmarried moms are roughly ve times as likely to live in poverty as children of married couples. Causation is difcult to tease from correlation. But efforts to do that suggest that growing up with just one biological parent reduces the chance that a child will graduate from high school by 40 percent, according to an essay by Sara McLanahan of Princeton and Christopher Jencks of Harvard. They point to the likely mechanism: “A father’s absence increases antisocial behavior, such as aggression, rule-breaking, delinquency and illegal drug use.” These effects are greater on boys than on girls. Conservatives shouldn’t chortle at the evidence that liberals blew it, for they did as well. Conservatives say all the right things about honoring families, but they led the disastrous American experiment in mass incarceration; incarceration rates have quintupled since the 1970s. That devastated families, leading countless boys to grow up without dads. What can be done? In line with Moynihan’s thinking, we can support programs to boost the economic prospects for poorer families. We can help girls and young women avoid pregnancy (30 percent of U.S. girls become pregnant by age 19). If they delay childbearing, they’ll be more likely to marry and form stable families, notes Isabel Sawhill of the Brookings Institution. So let’s learn from 50 years of mistakes. A starting point is to acknowledge the role of families in ghting poverty. That’s not about being a moralistic scold but about helping American kids.

The ght seems to be over. Peace is at hand. After two insurrections against Republican National Committee mandates covering presidential primary dates, the Florida House and Senate are poised to make a wise decision to cease hostilities. House Bill 7035 (and a companion Senate bill) paves the way for Florida Republicans to return to the good graces of their national party. When passed by the full legislature and signed by the governor, Florida’s Presidential Primary moves from January to March 15, 2016. This is signicant be cause that date is the rst day the state can conduct, if it chooses as expected, a primary with a winnertake-all prize for the victor. RNC rules require the awarding of convention delegates based upon the percentage of votes earned for any primaries held between March 1 and March 14. Primaries before March 1 are subject to penalties. To be sure, frustration exists at the inuence the early primary and caucus states Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina hold on the nominating process. But those states will always go rst unless large numbers of national committee members decide otherwise. Political guerrilla operations, such as passing a law to move ahead of those four states, are doomed to failure. After Florida did just that in 2008, the other states simply moved their dates ahead, pre serving their status. The Democratic National Committee joined the RNC by imposing sanctions on the Florida delegations to their respective national conventions. After threatening other wise, all delegates were ultimately seated. Four years later both legislative chambers had new leaders, but similar ideas about raising Florida’s inuence in the nominating process. The RNC also had new leadership, but with even stronger ideas about rule enforcement. Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-chairman Sharon Day of Fort Lauderdale made it clear penalties would be levied and enforced if any state messed with the primary calendar. One frank discussion on the matter at Tallahassee’s Governor’s Club between Day and some in legislative leader ship stands out. “Florida’s role in selecting the Republican nominee for president is just as important today as it was four and eight years ago,” said Day. “The rules are designed to have an orderly nominating process while being fair to everyone.” Florida again outed the rules and the RNC matched their threats with action. The Florida delegation was cut in half and despite the national convention being a home game in Tampa, the slimmer delegation was exiled to stay about 30 miles away from downtown. “I’m pissed off,” then-Republican Party of Florida Chairman Lenny Curry said at the time. He was understandably perturbed that “our activists and our donors are going to be punished for something they had nothing to do with.” Perhaps Florida had some inuence in nominating John McCain in 2008. At the same time, Gov. Charlie Crist’s surprise endorsement of McCain just 72 hours before the primary played an equal or greater role. It is difcult to make the case that jumping in line was worth it for Florida in 2012. After Mitt Romney won the Florida Primary on Jan. 31, 2012, the contest dragged on with former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum still winning primaries well into March. Like it or not, four states carrying 24 total electoral votes (4.5 percent of the Electoral College total of 538) will effectively end the candidacies of some Republican hopefuls. But any serious contender will survive long enough to campaign in March for Florida’s delegates. The bill has broad support which clearly reects a desire by Democrats to avoid even the chance of penalties for them. A month ago the issue might have been moot, but if more revelations about Hillary Clinton keep surfacing in The New York Times (not Fox News), they might actually have a primary of their own in 2016. “The House and Senate is about to take an important step toward creating an orderly primary process,” added Day. “I look forward to the legislature passing, and Gov. Scott signing, the bill that will enable Florida to have full representation at next year’s convention in Cleveland.” It appears the days of Florida being a primary scofaw are nearing an end.

Deborah Robinson, program director at Mental Health Community Centers Inc., 3545 Bobcat Village Center Road (off Toledo Blade Boulevard), North Port, said the center is open for any veterans who need a place to gather and socialize. The Anchor House, the name of the North Port location, is nonclinical, which means there are no therapists or doctors, and prescriptions are not given. Robinson describes it as a center where peer support is the strength of the program. A year’s membership is $30. “We would welcome veterans and give them some space,” Robinson said. “We provide art classes, music classes and more — all the things that help the feel-good chemicals in your brain increase.” Robinson said the center opened eight years ago, and used to be open only a few hours a week. She said 18 months ago, the center expanded its hours to 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. The center helps anyone with a mental illness who is 19 years old or older. According to Robinson, the organization revolves around studies that show hospitalization rates are reduced by 70 percent for people with mental illness if they socialize with peers more often. She said for every dollar spent on programs like the ones at Anchor House, people save $10 in hospitalization costs. Representatives from Jewish Family and Children’s Service of the Sun Coast Inc. also attended the meeting to explain how the nonprofit organization, based in both Sarasota and Charlotte counties, can help veterans. According to its website,, its “Operation Military Assistance Program” offers assistance to low-income veterans and their families who are homeless, or close to homeless, to help them find steady work and stable, permanent housing. CHAT members said a lot of veterans’ needs and problems circle back to the problem of not having enough affordable housing in North Port. Mayor Rhonda DiFranco, who spent the past week in Washington, D.C., for her city position, said she spoke to legislators for support of opening a “veterans village” in the city. She said the idea is still in early discussions though, and the plan has not been brought in front of the City Commission. An example of a veterans village can be found in downtown Las Vegas. The website, http:// veteransvillagelasvegas. org, states the community provides transitional and permanent housing for veterans, and it is operated by SHARE, a nonprot organization. DiFranco said she hopes to provide a center for services within the veterans village she hopes to see built locally. George also said he has invited representatives from the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System to speak at an upcoming CHAT meeting that has not been announced yet. Bay Pines has seven community-based outpatient clinics in Central and Southwest Florida, and the closest one for local veterans is the Port Charlotte VA clinic location. The next CHAT meeting will be held at 4:30 p.m. April 9 at the North Port Police Department conference room, 4980 City Hall Blvd. (off Sumter Boulevard). It is open to the public.Email: ashirk@sun-herald.comVETERANSFROM PAGE 1 DIFRANCO WHERE TO FIND ASSISTANCE Anchor House, 3545 Bobcat Village Center Road (off Toledo Blade Boulevard), North Port; 941-423-9898; Jewish Family and Children’s Service of the Suncoast Inc., “Operation Military Assistance Program,” 514 E.

Warmack and Shippey said a woman came to the marina saying the house was on re and she did not have a phone to call 911. After calling 911, Warmack, Shippey and marina employ ees Pete Wagonseil and Sean McCully ran to the house. “It just started climbing up the wall,” Warmack said. He also said he was the one who woke Moore from her nap. From the ground oor, Wagonseil and McCully doused the re with a gar den hose, while Warmack and Shippey sprayed the re with extinguishers. “The extinguishers only knock down the re for a second,” Shippey said. At that point, he said, they backed away in case there was an explosion. Neighbors responded, too. Linda and Ray Cliffton are renting the house next door.

At Franz Ross Park, the expanded facilities means more academic programs for more children, plus swimming, tumbling and dancing at the YMCA Fitness Center right next door. “Not only are we involved in the learning process of children, but we are very focused on their physical progress as well,” Dunn said. “We want to build strong kids.” The two new buildings mark quite an advancement for the YMCA Child Development Center at Franz Ross Park. Five years ago, the location started with about 15 youngsters for a VPK (Voluntary Prekindergarten) education program, said Wini Shumacher, Charlotte County YMCA chief operating ofcer. However, a recent needs assessment survey determined that parents wanted more affordable child care services. “There was a denite need in the community,” she said. “They said, ‘If you build it, we will come.’” On a recent Friday, the child care center also offered Parent’s Night, a fun evening of games, movies and more pizza for kids, while their parents enjoyed some quality time for themselves. As an added bonus for adults who work out or take an aerobics or water class at the tness center, they can drop off their children for an hour or two at Child Watch, which provides arts and crafts and special attention for kids. Jan Odom, executive director of the Franz Ross Park YMCA, said more than 15,000 people walk through their doors every month. The tness center offers a vast array of cardio equipment, along with 15 weekly exercise classes. And there is the only indoor swimming pool in the community, along with a Jacuzzi, for year-round enjoyment.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comYMCAFROM PAGE 1 It’s lunchtime for 4-month-old Jamison Rowe, compliments of Daisy Lloyd, the infant’s teacher.SUN PHOTOS BY GARY ROBERTSLeft: Teacher Jessica Russell and her VPK class celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday on Friday with an art project.

More than 3,000 people have fallen for the ruse since 2013, said Timothy Camus, a Treasury deputy inspector general for tax administration. They were conned out of a total of $15.5 million. The scam has claimed victims in almost every state, Camus said. One unidenti ed victim lost more than $500,000. “The criminals do not discriminate. They are calling people everywhere, of all income levels and backgrounds,” Camus told the Senate Finance Committee at a hearing. “The callers often warned the victims that if they hung up, local police would come to their homes to arrest them.” The scam is so widespread that investigators believe there is more than one group of perpetrators, including some overseas.Tax scams run rampantBy STEPHEN OHLEMACHERASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERFake IRS agents target more than 366,000SCAMS | 4 AL-UDEID AIR BASE, Qatar — American refueling planes rumble into the air from this desert air base around the clock to top up coalition aircraft bombing Islamic State militants, whether they’re Arab ghters ying out of regional bases or French warplanes catapulted off an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf.

The mission changed from rescue to recovery after divers inspected the shattered core of the UH60 Black Hawk helicopter, said Col. Monte Cannon, vice-commander of the 96th Test Wing at Eglin Air Force Base. “It was certainly a high-impact crash,” said Eglin Fire Chief Mark Giuliano, and “very, very, very dense fog” was complicating the response. There’s almost no visibility at the spot where the wreckage was found, forcing search crews to move slowly to avoid colliding with each other, and the surf is too rough still to pull the wreckage to the surface.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Friday, March 13, 2015 NATIONAL NEWS FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — With measured remarks and a conciliatory tone, police, political leaders and civil-rights activists on Thursday sought to tamp down tensions after two police ofcers were shot in front of the Ferguson Police Department during a protest. The ofcers were quickly released from the hospital, but St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said they could have easily been killed and called the attack “an ambush.” Meanwhile, people were taken in for questioning after a SWAT team converged on a Ferguson home near the shooting site. Police did not immediately offer details. The shootings marked the rst time in eight months of tension in Ferguson that ofcers were shot at a protest, and the bloodshed threatened to iname the already fraught relationship between police and protesters just as the city seeks reforms in the wake of a withering Justice Department report on its law-enforcement practices. The attack resonated all the way to Washington. President Barack Obama took to Twitter to relay his prayers to the ofcers and to denounce violence against police as unacceptable. “Path to justice is one all of us must travel together,” Obama wrote, signing the tweet with his initials to indicate the president personally composed it. Attorney General Eric Holder called the shooting “inexcusable and repugnant.” The shots were red early Thursday just as a small crowd of protesters began to break up after a demonstration that unfolded hours after the resignation of Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson. The shots were believed to come from a handgun red across the street from the police department, which has been a national focal point since the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, who was black and unarmed, by a white police ofcer. The gunman may have red from up to 120 yards away, a long distance for most pistols. But with a line of roughly 20 ofcers standing in front of the building, the shooter did not have to be particular ly accurate to hit two of them, Belmar said. “We’re lucky by God’s grace we didn’t lose two ofcers last night,” Belmar said. Both ofcers suffered signicant wounds but were expected to recover, Belmar said. A 41-year-old St. Louis County ofcer was shot in the right shoulder, the bullet exiting through his back. A 32-year-old ofcer from Webster Groves was wearing a riot helmet with the face shield up. He was shot in the right cheek, just below the eye, and the bullet lodged behind his ear. John Gaskin III, a St. Louis community activist, said the shooting was conducted by outside agitators who are intent on hijacking attention from peaceful, reform-minded protesters. Activists “cannot afford these kinds of incidents happening, because that gets us absolutely nowhere.”Police, other groups try to tamp down tensions in Ferguson WELLFLEET, Mass. (AP) — Parts of Cape Cod look a little bit like the Arctic Circle this week. Icebergs aren’t a common sight in Massachusetts, but massive chunks of ice have washed up on some beaches — and they’re drawing curious onlookers. Children have been climbing some of the icy mammoths that cropped up along Duck Harbor Beach in Welleet, Mass. Despite a brief warmup earlier this week, there were still big chunks 5 to 6 feet high on the beach Thursday. “It’s amazing. They’re like mini-icebergs,” said Jessica Hornung, 33, who drove up from Connecticut with her three young children just to check out the unusual sight. “It would be awesome if there were a polar bear on one of them,” she joked. Technically, the chunks aren’t icebergs, which are dened as large pieces that break off of glaciers or polar ice shelves. Instead, meteorologists say, they’re fragments from the extraordinary amount of ice that built up in Massachusetts Bay and were carried by cur rents into Cape Cod Bay and the Cape Cod Canal — a startling reminder of an epic winter that held much of New England in an icy grip for weeks. Michelle Norcross, of Chatham, ventured out with her husband and daughter Thursday to snap photographs of the huge chunks at low tide, when they’re most visible. Some of the pieces are so big they dwarf humans. “I’m hoping they’re right when they say this is a once-in-a-generation occurrence. It’s beautiful but it’s very unusual,” she said. “I don’t want this to happen every year. It’s kind of freaky.” Local ofcials say the ice chunks are melting and the phenomenon won’t last long.Cape Cod gets an arctic vibe AP PHOTOCurious onlookers walk around large chunks of sea ice washed up on Welleet Harbor Beach and left stranded at low tide Thursday, in Welleet, Mass. WASHINGTON (AP) — Conservatives say they are happier, but liberals show more cheer in smiles, word choice and even emoticon use, claims a new scientic study. Other researchers found fault with the study, which looked at how Democrats and Republicans differ in positive language in speeches entered into the Congressional Record, photos in the congressional directory, tweets by followers of the two different political parties, LinkedIn photos associated with advocacy groups, and answers to psychological satisfaction-with-life surveys. The scientists found Democrats in Congress and liberals in general used a statistically signicant amount of more positive language and smiled more with their eyes in photographs, while conservatives self-reported more satisfaction with life, according to a study published in the peer-reviewed journal Science. “We’re not saying liberals are happier, they behave happier,” said study co-author Peter Ditto, a professor of psychology at the University of California Irvine. “But conservatives report being happier.” Other studies have reported that conservatives tend to score higher on tests that rate how satised with life they are, but University of California Irvine graduate student Sean Wojcik, the study’s lead author, decided to look deeper. He looked at other indicators of happiness: words and facial expressions. The researchers examined 18 years and 432 million words of speeches in the Congressional Record, concentrating on 2013. Democrats used 13.6 positive words for every negative and Republicans used 11.5 positive words per negative. That higher rate for liberals was apparent regardless of who controlled Congress or the White House, Ditto said. For a laughing Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., this rings true: “A lot of what seems to fuel Republican energy is anger-based. They’re angry about Iran. They’re angry about Obama. ... And you hear that on the oor constantly.” That’s not the feeling at the ofce of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., where a sign above the congressman’s door reads “Fighting for Freedom and Having Fun.” His spokes man Ken Grubbs said, “A day at the ofce here is never without lots of laughs.” Political scientist Jack Pitney said the Wojcik study was so off kilter that it seemed to be a parody, adding “I don’t think too many people will take this seriously.”Conservatives talk happiness, liberals walk the walk | NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFSUS budget deficit totals $192.3B in FebruaryWASHINGTON (AP) — The federal government ran a slightly smaller decit in February than a year ago but the imbalance through the rst ve months of the budget year is still running ahead of last year. The Treasury Department reported Thursday that the decit in February was $192.3 billion, down from a decit of $193.5 billion a year ago. For the rst ve months of this budget year, the decit totals $386.5 billion, up 2.7 percent from a decit of $376.4 billion during the rst ve months of the 2014 budget year. For the entire budget year, which ends Sept. 30, the Congressional Budget Ofce is forecasting a decit of $486 billion, up 0.6 percent from the 2014 decit of $483.4 billion. The 2014 decit was the smallest annual imbalance in six years.Mars rover moving robotic arm again after electrical shortPASADENA, Calif. (AP) — NASA says the robotic arm on the Curiosity rover is moving again after a short circuit temporarily halted its work on Mars. The space agency said Thursday that Curiosity transferred a powder sample from a recent rock drilling to an onboard laboratory to process earlier this week. The activity was put on hold late last month after the rover experienced an electrical short. Engineers say the likely cause is an intermittent short in the motor of the drill. They’ll continue to analyze the issue to decide how best to use the drill for future work. Curiosity is at the base of a Martian mountain and will drive to higher ground in the coming days to explore more rocks.FDA raises bar for endoscopes linked to ‘superbug’ outbreaksWASHINGTON (AP) — Federal health ofcials issued multiple announcements Thursday aimed at addressing growing safety concerns about medical scopes that have been linked to several recent “superbug” outbreaks. The Food and Drug Administration released stricter guidelines for manufacturers of reusable medical instruments, including specialized endoscopes used in about a half-million U.S. medical procedures each year. For the rst time the FDA is asking manufacturers to submit scientic data showing that their devices can be safely disinfected. FDA ofcials acknowledged that previous agency guidelines from 1996 made no such request from companies.White House: Obama still confident in Secret Service chiefWASHINGTON (AP) — A presidential spokesman expressed condence Thursday in the Secret Service director despite a new investigation into two agents accused of driving into a White House security barrier after a night of drinking. White House spokesman Eric Schultz said President Barack Obama was disappointed to learn about the March 4 incident. But Obama believes the director, Joseph Clancy, is the right person to address the agency’s problems. “Nobody has higher standards for the Secret Service than Director Clancy,” Schultz said. Clancy has asked the Homeland Security Department’s internal watchdog, rather than the Secret Service, to investigate, Secret Service spokesman Robert Hoback said. The agency said the agents have been reassigned to nonsupervisory, nonoperational jobs.Frat: Investigations underway in Texas, LouisianaNORMAN, Okla. (AP) — The Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity said Thursday it was investigating racism allegations at universities in Louisiana and Texas after hearing that young men at two schools sang or knew of the same racist chant caught on video in Oklahoma last weekend. Spokesman Brandon Weghorst said the chapter at the University of Texas at Austin was being “fully cooperative” and that a probe at Louisiana Tech in Ruston was in its early stages. He said no new allegations had been substantiated. A nine-second video recorded last weekend caught members of the fraternity’s University of Oklahoma chapter singing a song that used a derogatory term for black people and referenced lynching. University president David Boren ordered the SAE house shuttered and expelled two students identied as ringleaders. “We had no idea of this type of behavior was going on underground,” Weghorst said Thursday. “This is the type of stuff (the chant), it goes under ground and it goes under the radar,” he said. “It’s dangerous because — if we don’t know about it, we can’t stop it.”Police: Pair held officers at gunpoint before deadly scuffleDENVER (AP) — Husband-and-wife meth users disarmed a Colorado wildlife ofcer and a sheriff’s deputy then forced them to their knees along a desolate mountain highway before the husband was killed in a struggle, police reports released Thursday show. The man had handcuffed the deputy and held both ofcers at gunpoint with their own weapons before the wildlife ofcer overpowered him, took back his gun and shot him to death Monday near the small town of Dinosaur in northwestern Colorado, about 10 miles from the Utah border. Neither ofcer was injured during the encounter that began after they found the couple’s abandoned Ford Explorer on the side of the road.Man once convicted of spying pleads guilty to document theftBALTIMORE (AP) — A Maryland man whose espionage conviction made headlines in the 1980s acknowledged a more common crime Thursday: theft. Samuel Loring Morison pleaded guilty to stealing boxes worth of government records from a naval history archive in the nation’s capital. The records were related to his grandfather, a prominent historian. Morison, 70, pleaded guilty to theft of government property and was sentenced to two years of probation. He must also cooperate with ofcials in returning any additional items that belong to the government. adno=50471075 SUN Charlotte Sun11eCaThat's our promiseAv 77 F7.

Page 4 WIRE The Sun /Friday, March 13, 2015 FROM PAGE ONE by “bumping” their smartphones together. The videos were not posted online. “Videos were treated like Pokemon (cards). Something to be collected,” Marsh said during the preliminary hearing in the case against two missile technicians charged with conspiracy to distribute recordings of private areas of female ofcers. Navy Vice Adm. Michael Connor, commander of the nation’s submarine eet, has characterized the case as a “serious sexual offense, with signicant penalties.” The case highlights issues the Navy has faced in switching to coed crews on ballistic-missile submarines. It began the practice in 2011. More than 50 women now serve aboard submarines, and Connor has said while the change to coed crews has not been without incident, overall it has been a success. Navy Lt. Paul Hochmuth, defense attorney for one of the accused missile technicians who was in court on Thursday, said his client didn’t know what the les were when he accepted the “gift” on his phone. He argued that the government was unfairly describing the videos as graphic — he said they were of poor quality, were only ever viewed on smartphones and showed only partial nudity. “At no point can you ever see a full length view of the person. You might see a face then a leg or a butt but there is no full length view,” Hochmuth said. Marsh said the quality of the videos is irrelevant because they were made without consent and that they were plenty graphic. “The videos consist of undressing for the shower and drying off from the shower,” he said. The hearing was presided over by a Naval ofcer, who listened to statements from both sides and will issue a recommendation to Rear Adm. Charles Richard, commander of submarine group 10. Richard will decide whether to pursue courts-martial trials against the defendants, dismiss the charges or use other administrative methods to deal with the cases.VIDEOSFROM PAGE 1 Sound Thursday, recovering pieces of clothing and bits of wreckage, but the U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search Thursday afternoon, and will instead focus on helping the Army recover the remaining fuselage and debris, it said. Two of the soldiers’ bodies were recovered, but two others were believed to remain inside the wreckage, said Maj. Gen. Glenn H. Curtis, adjutant general of the Louisiana Army National Guard, which ew the helicopter. The Marines were with the Special Operations Command at Camp Lejeune, N.C. The military has not identied those killed, but some family members have conrmed the deaths. One of the Marines killed was Kerry Kemp, whose wife, Jenna, was notied overnight that her husband’s remains had been found. Kemp was a “proud Marine, a loving husband and most wonderful father,” with a child about to turn 1, said his sister-inlaw, Lora Waraksa of Port Washington, Wis. Another victim was Marcus Bawol, 27, from Warren, Mich., north of Detroit. His sister, Brandy Peek, said military ofcials told the family they had identied his remains. Bawol “loved everything about the military,” Peek said. The National Guard soldiers, from Hammond, La., each did two tours in Iraq, and joined in humanitarian missions after Gulf Coast hurricanes and the BP oil spill, their commanders said. All the Marines were “seasoned combat veterans” who did tours in Iraq before joining the 2nd Marine Special Operations Battalion in Afghanistan, where they were training local military and police, said Capt. Barry Morris, spokesman for the Marine Corps Special Operations Command at Camp Lejeune. These “unconventional warriors” train constantly to endure grueling conditions and sensitive assignments on land and at sea, from seizing ships to special reconnaissance missions and direct action inside hostile territory. Their practice Tuesday involved “insertion and extraction missions,” using small boats and helicopters to move in and out of a target site.WRECKAGEFROM PAGE 1 While the U.S. is doing the heavy lifting in the airstrikes, American ofcials say the allies’ contributions are vital. “This is dangerous stuff. This is not political theater,” said Lt. Col. David Haworth, chief of the current operations division for the Combined Air Operation Center. “I don’t think what we are doing today would be even remotely possible without the coalition partners,” he told The Associated Press, making a rare media visit to the base. “To say that we want to or we are capable of go ing it alone I think would be a terrible mistake.” The low-rise Combined Air Operation Center, packed with rows of computer terminals with bigscreen monitors overhead, brings together ofcers from across the coalition to help share information and plan missions. Intelligence gathered by coalition members helps give commanders a deeper understanding of how the Islamic State group operates on the ground, Haworth said. For example, at times its ghters mass together like a traditional army unit, while in other situations they behave more like insurgent guerrillas. All information will be key in preparations for an eventual offensive by Iraqi troops and Kurdish ghters to retake the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, the biggest city under the extremists’ control. The coalition will no doubt be backing the assault, though ofcials here would not discuss plans for future operations. “If they (the militants) want to try and reinforce, whether it’s Mosul or some other location, we want to make sure we’re ready,” Haworth said. “If they want to ee, we’ll want to make sure that we have that contingency covered as well.” American planes in general hit more of what the military refers to as “dynamic” targets — ones that are not pre-planned — and a mobile insurgency like the Islamic State group makes for a lot of dynamic targets. The Air Force estimates that half of all strikes in the battle stem from close air support for Iraqi ground forces. Another 30 percent involve hitting Islamic State militants traveling between Iraq and Syria. Many coalition members, meanwhile, might drop multiple bombs on a single preset target, such as a militant-held compound or mobile oil renery. Since the bombing campaign began, American warplanes have handled 80 percent of the 2,780 air strikes carried out as of Tuesday in Iraq and Syria, according to the most recent gures provided by the U.S. military. The share of American strikes is even greater in Syria. There, Arab coalition members have conducted just 93 air strikes, compared with 1,137 by American aircraft.LIFTINGFROM PAGE 1 Camus said even he received a call from one of the scammers at his home on a Saturday. He said he had a stern message for the caller: “Your day will come.” Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., said he got a similar call, but realized it wasn’t a real IRS agent. “It was a very convincing, convincing phone call,” Isakson said. So far, two people in Florida have been arrested, Camus said. They were accused of being part of a scam that involved people in call centers in India contacting U.S. taxpayers and pretending to be IRS agents. “These criminal acts are perpetrated by thieves hid ing behind telephone lines and computers, preying on honest taxpayers and robbing the Treasury of tens of billions of dollars every year,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. “Taxpayers must be more aware of the risks and better protected from attack and these criminals must be found and brought to justice.” The IRS and the inspector general’s ofce started warning taxpay ers about the scam a year ago, and it has since ballooned. This year, it tops the IRS list of “Dirty Dozen” tax scams. Tax scams often increase during tax ling season, and with millions of Americans preparing their returns ahead of the April 15 deadline, the IRS is seeing many cases of identity theft and refund fraud. In recent years the IRS has stepped up efforts to detect large numbers of tax refunds going to the same address or bank account. Using computer lters, the agency identied more than 517,000 suspicious returns and blocked $3.1 billion in fraudulent returns, as of October 2014, Camus said in his testimony. In 2012, the IRS started working more closely with U.S. attorneys’ ofces around the country to combat tax refund fraud by people using stole identities, said Caroline Ciraolo, acting assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s tax division. Since then, the tax division has opened nearly 1,000 investigations and brought prosecutions against more than 1,400 people, Ciraolo told the Senate Finance Committee hearing. “Given the sophistication of this criminal activity and the fact that a lot of it comes from overseas, this looks to me like an emerging type of organized crime,” said Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, the top Democrat on the Finance Committee.SCAMSFROM PAGE 1WASHINGTON (The Washington Post) — NASA announced evidence on Thursday that Jupiter’s largest moon, Ganymede, has a saltwater ocean under its icy surface. The ocean seems to have more water than all the water on Earth’s surface. New Hubble obser vations of Ganymede’s magnetic eld strongly suggest that the moon, which is the largest in our whole solar system, is home to a subsurface ocean. Scientists have already conrmed the existence of an ocean on Europa, another moon orbiting Jupiter, and NASA has announced plans to send an unmanned mission there searching for the life that might come with liquid water. While scientists have speculated about the presence of an ocean on Ganymede since the 1970s, until now the only observational evidence came from a brief yby by the Galileo spacecraft, which didn’t observe the moon long enough to conrm a liquid ocean. Scientists estimate that the ocean is 60 miles thick, which is about 10 times deeper than Earth’s oceans. But unlike our salty waters, Ganymede’s ocean is buried under 95 miles of ice. “This discovery marks a signicant milestone, highlighting what only Hubble can accomplish,” John Grunsfeld, assistant administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters, said in a statement. “In its 25 years in orbit, Hubble has made many scientic discoveries in our own solar system. A deep ocean under the icy crust of Ganymede opens up further exciting possibilities for life beyond Earth.” The Hubble is a telescope that orbits Earth, but because of these impressive gravitational analyses it can be used to study the interior of planets far off in the distance. Using these same principles, Hubble senior project scientist Jennifer Wiseman said during a NASA news conference on Thursday, scientists could theoretically detect oceans on distant exoplanets as well. “It may require a telescope larger than the Hubble, it may require a new space telescope, but nevertheless it is a tool we have now,” Wiseman said. This news comes just a day after the announcement that one of Saturn’s moons might have hydrothermal activity in its subsurface ocean — a phenomenon that could allow it to support life. It seems that water may be relatively common in our solar system, making the search for life all the more exciting and mysterious.NASA finds underground ocean on Jupiter’s largest moon BEIRUT (AP) — The spokesman for Islamic State militants said Thursday that the extremist group has accepted the pledge of allegiance by West Africa’s Boko Haram group. In an audio recording released by the group’s media arm Al-Furqan, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani claimed the pledge of allegiance meant that the caliphate has now expanded to West Africa. The recording was released a few days after an audio recording from Boko Haram leader Abubakar Sheka posted online Saturday in which he pledged allegiance to IS. Al-Adnani also urged foreign ghters from around the world to migrate and join Boko Haram. Boko Haram killed an estimated 10,000 people last year, and it is blamed for last April’s abduction of more than 275 schoolgirls. In August, Boko Haram followed the lead of IS in declaring an Islamic caliphate in northeast Nigeria that grew to cover an area the size of Belgium. The Islamic State had declared a caliphate in vast swaths of territory that it controls in Iraq and Syria. WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday that elected ofcials who ban the words “climate change” are unwilling to face the facts, a non-so-subtle dig at Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s administration. Kerry, a longtime champion of combatting climate change, said the ofcials were ignoring the scientic facts. “Now folks, we literally do not have the time to waste debating whether we can say ‘climate change,’” Kerry said during a speech at The Atlantic Council, a Washington think tank. “Because no matter how much people want to bury their heads in the sand, it will not alter the fact that 97 per cent of peer-reviewed climate studies conrm that climate change is happening and that human activity is largely responsible.” Kerry did not refer to Scott by name but said that he had read in the last “couple of days” reports about the ban. Scott, a Republican who is skeptical of climate science and said he was not a scientist when asked about global warming predictions, has denied claims that he banned ofcials from using the terms “climate change” and “global warming.”IS accepts Boko Haram allegiance pledgeKerry speaks out on Florida’s ‘climate change’ ban ALMANACToday is Friday, March 13, the 72nd day of 2015.

The Sun /Friday, March 13, 2015 WIRE Page 5 WORLD NEWS TIKRIT, Iraq (AP) — Iraqi troops clashed along two fronts with Islamic State militants in Tikrit on Thursday as rockets and mortars echoed across Saddam Hussein’s hometown a day after soldiers and allied Shiite militiamen swept into this Sunni city north of Baghdad. Recapturing Tikrit is seen as a key step toward rolling back the gains of the extremist Islamic State group, which seized much of northern and western Iraq in a blitz last summer and now controls about a third of both Iraq and Syria. The offensive also will serve as a major crucible for Iraqi forces, which collapsed under the extremists’ initial offensive last year and now face one of the Sunni militant group’s biggest strongholds. Iraqi forces entered Tikrit for the rst time on Wednesday from the north and south. On Thursday, they were ghting their way through the city and expected to reach the center within three to four days, according to Lt. General Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi, the commander of the Tikrit operation. The IS militants were trying to repel the Iraqi forces with snipers, suicide car bombs, heavy machine guns and mortars, said al-Saadi, speaking to The Associated Press at the front-lines. Tikrit, the capital of Salahuddin province, sits on the Tigris River about 130 kilometers (80 miles) north of Baghdad. Several of Saddam’s palaces remain there, and supporters of the deceased dictator are believed to have played a key role in the Islamic State group’s seizure of the city last year. Iraqi Defense Minister Khaled al-Obeidi, who was also at the front-line on Thursday, told the AP that the operation to retake Tikrit is “essential to opening a corridor for security forces to move from the south to Mosul,” he said, referring to Iraq’s second-largest city and the militants’ biggest stronghold. He described the operation as percent Iraqi, from the air and ground.” When the Islamic State last year swept into Mosul, the U.S.-trained Iraqi military crumbled and the militants seized tanks, missile launchers and ammunition, steamrolling across northern Iraq. The CIA estimates the Sunni militant group has access to between 20,000 and 31,000 ghters in Iraq and Syria. Military ofcials believe there may be about 150 foreign ghters with the IS inside Tikrit, including ghters from Chechnya and the Arab Gulf countries. Iraqi ofcials now say that at least 30,000 men — including the military, militias, Sunni tribes and police — are ghting to capture Tikrit. U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, the Joint Chiefs chairman, said Wednesday that at least 20,000 militiamen are taking part in the Tikrit ghting. On Thursday, militiamen were heard intercepting IS walkie-talkie signals, listening to the militants’ call for reinforcements and ordering mortar re on the soldiers as they closed in. Along the route between Salahuddin’s command center and the battleeld, charred remains of tankers and cars used by suicide bombers litter the roads, and homes bear signs of months of war, damaged by bombs and bullets. Military ofcials told the AP they are advancing with caution in an effort to limit damage to the city’s infrastructure, so that residents can return quickly once Tikrit is retaken. A satellite image of Tikrit, released last month by the United Nations, showed that at least 536 buildings in Tikrit have been affected by ghting, with at least 137 completely destroyed and 241 severely damaged.Iraqi forces battle Islamic State for Tikrit AP PHOTOIraqi security forces patrol in Tikrit, 80 miles north of Baghdad, Iraq, Thursday. | WORLD NEWS BRIEFSUN tally of Ebola deaths passes 10,000GENEVA (AP) — The World Health Organization marked a grim milestone Thursday in the biggestever Ebola outbreak, estimating that the virus had killed over 10,000 people, mostly in the West African nations of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Fifteen other Ebola deaths also occurred in Mali, Nigeria and the United States. Health ofcials now acknowledge they were too slow to respond to this emergency, allowing Ebola to cross porous borders in a region where broken health systems were unable to stop its spread. A huge global response — including soldiers sent by Britain, the U.S. and other nations — has slowed the deaths from Ebola dramatically, especially Liberia, but the virus appears stubbornly entrenched in parts of Guinea and Sierra Leone.Kremlin says Ukraine moving too slowly to fulfill peace dealMOSCOW (AP) — Russia accused Ukraine Thursday of dragging its feet on implementing last month’s peace deal, citing a wide range of areas in which Kiev is allegedly failing to meet its obligations. President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told The Associated Press that Ukraine was failing in its pledge to declare an amnesty for ghters and to set the stage for local elections in the east. He also accused Ukrainian authorities of being reluctant to restore nancial and social services to the east. “Unfortunately, we witness unwillingness,” Peskov told the AP, “and we are concerned about that.” He said that while hostilities in eastern Ukraine have abated thanks to the Feb. 12 peace deal, Russian-backed separatists and the Ukrainian government are still blaming each other for a slow and incomplete withdrawal of heavy weapons. He said “we do expect both sides of the conict to fulll their obligations, and to withdraw completely and timely all the heavy armaments.”Gaza exports first produce to Israel since Hamas takeoverGAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Israeli authorities allowed the import of Gaza produce on Thursday for the rst time since Hamas seized control of the territory in 2007, a move that will aid the Palestinian strip’s battered economy and help pious Jews observe a biblical farming sabbatical. Some 27 tons of tomatoes and ve tons of eggplants were cleared to leave Gaza for Israel, Palestinian ofcials and Gaza merchants said. “Exporting to Israel is better, but insufcient,” said Gaza merchant Hosni Shehada, who oversaw the preparation of halfripe tomatoes and large eggplants for export at his warehouse. Before Hamas took over the seaside territory nearly eight years ago, Gaza merchants used to export hundreds of tons of vegetables to Israel on a daily basis.Cuba allows rare free public Wi-Fi at cultural centerHAVANA (AP) — Cuba has allowed the launch of the island’s rst known free, public Internet service at a Havana cultural center that quietly began offering open Wi-Fi in recent weeks. Dozens of youths have been ocking each day to the center run by famed artist Kcho, whose spokeswoman said state telecom Etecsa approved the move in a small but unprecedented loosening of Cuba’s strict Internet regulations. The service is slow compared with what Internet users are accustomed to in much of the world. But connectivity-starved islanders said it’s a boon that lets them access Facebook, read news of the world and communicate with friends and family overseas.Whale slams boat in Mexico, killing Canadian touristCABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico (AP) — A 35-yearold Canadian woman died and two other tourists were injured when a surfacing whale crashed into their boat, Mexican authorities said Thursday. The Attorney General’s Ofce for Environmental Protection said two other tourists suffered “considerable” injuries when the whale breached and hit the side of the boat on Wednesday. The ofce said the boat had been carrying nine tourists on a snorkel tour and was quite near shore when the collision occurred. It described the vessel as “a fragile type with inatable parts.” Photos showed the open boat — about 25 feet long, with twin outboard motors — apparently undamaged after the collision. In a statement to prosecutors, the company that operated the boat, Cabo Adventures, said the vessel was returning from a trip when the whale suddenly appeared.EU ministers beef up anti-terror measuresBRUSSELS (AP) — European countries agreed Thursday to begin giving extra scrutiny this summer to travelers who meet criteria indicating they could be terrorists or Muslim foreign ghters. The decision, taken at a meeting of EU interior ministers, was announced by Rihards Kozlovskis, Latvia’s interior minister, who chaired the session. EU ofcials said the decision, to go into effect in June, will apply throughout the 26-nation Schengen area, to which 22 EU member states belong. Kozlovskis said the “risk indicators” to be used to single out travelers and their documents for intensive examination are still being drafted by EU ofcials and member countries.UN Security Council nears text endorsing Boko Haram fightUNITED NATIONS (AP) — Members of the U.N. Security Council are proposing that the international community supply money, equipment, troops and intelligence to a ve-nation African force ghting Boko Haram. African countries have put together the largest international effort yet to defeat Boko Haram after Nigeria’s war against the Islamic extremists spilled beyond its borders. Alarm rose when Boko Haram over the weekend announced its allegiance to the Islamic State extremist group operating in Iraq and Syria.

The Japanese automaker will spend several million dollars on ads in 120 newspapers and 30-second radio spots in 110 markets. It’s also sponsoring customized Facebook posts that will appear in owners’ timelines. The ads — in English and Spanish — will begin running next week. Honda has recalled about 6.2 million cars in the U.S. since 2008 because air bag inators made by Takata Corp. can explode with too much force, sending shrapnel into the vehicle. Ten automakers, including Honda, have recalled about 22 million cars globally to replace Takata inators.US household net worth reaches $83 trillionWASHINGTON (AP) — Fueled by higher stock and home values, Americans’ net worth reached a record high in the nal three months of 2014. The Federal Reserve says household wealth rose 1.9 percent during the October-December quarter to nearly $83 trillion. Americans’ stock and mutual fund portfolios increased $742 billion, while the value of their homes rose $356 billion. The typical household didn’t benet much, though. Most of the wealth remains concentrated among richer families. The Fed’s gures aren’t adjusted for population growth or ination. Household wealth, or net worth, reects the value of homes, stocks and other assets minus mortgages, credit cards and other debts.Sales fall as record cold hurts retailersWASHINGTON (Bloomberg) — Record cold in parts of the United States chilled retail sales in February as the world’s largest economy began the year on weak footing. Purchases unexpectedly dropped 0.6 percent, a third consecutive decline, Commerce Department gures showed Thursday. The median forecast of 86 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for a 0.3 percent gain. Frigid temperatures and snow probably contributed to slumping demand at auto dealers, building-material merchants and department stores, opening the possibility for a rebound this month. Still, sluggish wage increases may also be playing a role by prompting Americans to use the windfall from cheaper gasoline to build up savings or pay down debt. NEW YORK (AP) — A sharp rally in the dollar relented on Thursday, helping push the stock market to its best day in ve weeks. The U.S. currency dropped for the rst day in nine against the euro after a weak retail sales report raised questions about the strength of the economy. A jump in the dollar since the start of the month has pushed stocks back from record levels. Investors are worried that the stronger U.S. currency could crimp corporate earnings by hurting over seas sales. About half of the revenue generated by companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index comes from overseas. Financial stocks were among the biggest gainers after a number of banks got approval from the Federal Reserve to raise dividends and buy back shares. Intel was one of the days’ biggest losers after the company cut its revenue forecast for the rst quarter. “It’s the pullback in the dollar that’s cheering investors,” said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Rockwell Global Capital. “The frenzy that we saw in the foreign exchange markets has, at least for today, calmed down.” The Standard & Poor’s 500 index climbed 25.71 points, or 1.3 per cent, to 2,065.95. The best performance for the index since Feb. 3. The Dow Jones industrial gained 259.83 points, or 1.5 percent, to 17,895.22. The Nasdaq composite climbed 43.55 points, or 0.9 percent, to 4,893.29. Stocks have slumped since the start of the month on speculation that the Federal Reserve could raise its benchmark interest rate in June as hiring continues to improve. Policymakers have held their main rate close to zero for more than six years to help the economy recover from the Great Recession. Thursday’s slide in the dollar and the positive news on the banks more than outweighed a government report that showed retail sales were sluggish in February. The ongoing weakness is raising concerns about the strength of the economy. Among individual stocks, Intel was the biggest decliner in the S&P 500. Intel cut its revenue forecast for the rst quarter to $12.5 billion to $13.1 billion. The company cited weak demand for business desktop PCs and a strong dollar, which diminished revenue from overseas sales. Intel’s stock slumped $1.53, or 4.7 per cent, to $30.80.Dollar rally wanes Z0 0

A House committee on Thursday approved the bill after hearing passionate testimony. The measure sponsored by Rep. Jennifer Sullivan would require a woman seeking an abortion to talk in person to the physician performing the abortion at least 24 hours ahead of time. Sullivan said she was sponsoring the bill (HB 633) to make sure women were not rushed into seeking an abortion. The House Health Quality Subcommittee approved the bill along party lines. Republicans supported the bill, while Democrats opposed it. Opponents of the measure said the bill was interfering with a medical decision made by a woman and her doctor. Last year there were 72,000 abortions per formed in the state.Class size limits could be eased for school districtsTALLAHASSEE (AP) — Class size limits could be eased for Florida’s schools under a bill now moving in the Florida Legislature. A House committee approved the measure on Thursday. A 2002 state constitutional amendment limits classes in core subjects to 18 students in kindergar ten through third grade, 22 in fourth through eighth grade and 25 in high school. The state now penalizes districts for every class over those limits. The bill (HB 665) would impose penalties only if a school’s average class size violates the limits. That’s the way the penalties were applied during a phase-in period from 2006 through 2010. Since 2003 the state has spent nearly $30 billion on class size requirements. Most of that money has been used to hire additional teachers.State may pay school districts that require uniformsTALLAHASSEE (AP) — Florida school districts could earn extra money if they require students to wear uniforms. A House panel on Thursday approved a bill that would pay districts an extra $10 per student if a uniform policy is adopted. Districts are currently paid nearly $7,000 for each student. Legislators backing the proposal say that uniforms could help improve school safety. They also say it would minimize disciplinary problems because of distractions caused by clothing. The legislation is aimed at students in elementary and middle school. Districts would be shielded from lawsuits if they implement the uniform policy for those grades. School uniforms would have to feature solid colors. The bill (HB 7043) passed by the House Education Appropriations subcommittee sets aside $10 million for districts that require uniforms. Emergency gun bill to get second shot in SenateTALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) — After a similar measure died on the Senate oor nearly a year ago, the odds continued to improve Thursday for an NRA-supported measure that would allow more people to carry concealed weapons during emergency evacuations. The Senate Rules Committee voted 8-2 to back the reloaded measure (SB 290), which would allow legal gun owners to carry guns without concealed-weapons licenses during the rst 48 hours after emergency evacuation orders are given. The vote, which included support from three senators who questioned last year’s proposal, was the nal committee stop before the bill goes to the entire Senate.Scott heading to California in jobs pushTALLAHASSEE (AP) — Florida Gov. Rick Scott is hitting the road again in his quest to lure businesses from other states. He’s planning an April trip to California. The Republican gover nor sent a letter Thursday to shipping companies. Scott is urging them to shift their business to Florida after labor disputes in California ports. Scott’s letter takes shots at what he calls California Gov. Jerry Brown’s “tax and spend administration.” A spokesman for Brown said it makes sense for Scott to visit California since its economy is accelerating and the state is creating jobs. Evan Westrup also said they hope Scott’s stay is “enjoy able and educational.” adno=50480261 SGg1GS1`.. it 4 1SYIfI I1 1 'Iii1 III14P"VOWwill,/1 TTJICJ JIJ'' L nFe'd _J an'F, JJS Jf,r1

And it has denitely proven to be by far the toughest sport. “I play football, and I’m in weightlifting and track, and wrestling beats them all.” Morales, 18, who went 36-9 at 182 pounds this season, is one of ve North Port wrestlers who are scheduled to compete in the state tournament today and Saturday in Kissimmee. The others are 113-pound senior Anthony Tripke (42-5), 145-pound sophomore John Cruz (44-2), 160-pound junior Dacoda Flenard (48-0) and 195-pound senior David Towers (35-4). What separates wrestling from other sports is the “mentality,” Morales said. “You have to have the mentality to go the extra mile, push your body to go places it has never been before. When you nish a match, you’re denitely glad to be alive. You need endurance, the strength of a weightlifter. It comes down to who’s the toughest. The tougher man wins.” Morales is looking to at least medal — the top six nishers earn medals — if not win a state championship. “I’m denitely taking nothing less than a medal,” he said. “I want to get to the state nals, but my goal is to bring home some hardware.” Flenard, 17, is unbeaten and a regional champion, so a state title is well within his grasp. “I have some tough matches, but if I work hard enough I can denitely win them,” he said while taking a break from running laps on the football eld at the Preserve at North Port Bobcats embrace expectationsBy RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONDENT PREP WRESTLING: State tournament previewFor Morales, four teammates, weight-class nals are the goal COMPETITORSCLASS 3A Anthony Tripke, North Port, 113 John Cruz*, North Port, 145 Dacoda Flenard*, North Port, 160 Roman Morales, North Port, 182 David Towers, North Port, 195 CLASS 2A Ryan Rubenacker, Charlotte, 106 Trevor Mansfield, Charlotte, 126 Dylan Mooney*, Charlotte, 132 Brody Mansfield, Charlotte, 160 Chandler Pritchett, Charlotte, 170 Dalton Mills, Charlotte, 195 Bucky Dennis*, Charlotte, 285 CLASS 1A Lucas Willis, Imagine School, 106 Dominic Schofield*, Lemon Bay, 126 * Region champion STATE TOURNAMENTWHEN: Today (10 a.m.), Saturday (semifinals 9:30 a.m.; finals 5:30 p.m.) WHERE: Silver Spurs Arena, Kissimmee TICKETS: $9 per session (available at door).

Cobb gave up three runs on ve hits in 2innings. However, Tampa Bay rallied with an eight-run fth inning.PORT CHARLOTTE — Kevin Cash had already seen Alex Cobb pitch enough to know he was impressed with Tampa Bay’s projected opening day starter. The former Cleveland bullpen coach observed from the outeld as the righthander made three starts against his team during the 201314 seasons, and he watched Cobb throw 16 more times this year between offseason and spring training bullpens and live batting practice sessions. But after watching Cobb make his rst two starts of the spring Saturday against Pittsburgh and Thursday against Toronto, a 10 -3 victory, Cash has learned that watching Cobb from the outeld, in the bullpen or on the practice elds pales in comparison to watching him from the dugout. “As soon as game situations start, you see a lot more. You see the hitters’ reactions to pitches a lot better,” Cash said prior to Thursday’s game. “You can watch all the bullpens you want with Cobb — and I saw him throw quite a bit in the offseason — but when you see it in a game, with hitters, being able to locate to be able to do that in a game setting, right out of the gate is pretty Cobb’s struggles leave a markBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER MLB: Tampa BayPitcher’s attitude during and after start impresses Cash TODAYTampa Bay vs. Philadelphia at Clearwater, 1:05 p.m.INSIDEEight-run fifth inning carries Rays to victory against Toronto, Page 6 Rays make first roster moves of spring, Page 6 Thursday’s linescores, Page 5ONLINEThe Tampa Bay Rays Morning Report will not appear on today.

Granted, the odds work against it lasting beyond today’s Southeastern Conference tournament quarternal challenge against top-ranked and unbeaten Kentucky. But the Gators at least get a third shot at the Wildcats thanks to their junior forward. Finney-Smith had 23 points and 11 rebounds and Florida overcame a slow start to make nine 3pointers and beat Alabama 69-61 on Thursday. FinneySmith made 4 of 9 from long range to help them shake off an eight-point rst half decit and eventually build a double-digit lead in the second half. Suspended for several games down the stretch for violating team rules, Finney-Smith was also a force on the boards on both By GARY B.

But on Thursday, it was no match for a Cessna. Cessna Manalili scored nine goals and Alexis Smich added seven as the Port Charlotte High School girls lacrosse team dominated the second half and cruised to a 19-7 victory against Cape Coral for its third consecutive win after starting 0-4. The Seahawks cut the lead to 9-7 in the early moments of the second half, but didn’t score again as Port Charlotte (3-4) scored 10 unanswered goals, including three in a 42-second span to blow the game open and force a running clock with nine minutes left. “In the second half they turned it around, they knew exactly how to get it in the air and pass it around. They made their adjustments,” Port Charlotte coach Joanne Parker said.

FORT MYERS — Fully recovered from injury, Nick Longhi is back in Boston Red Sox camp and ready to play. The Venice High School graduate said his thumb is 100 percent healthy as he begins his third season of pro ball. Longhi used the fall instructional league at jetBlue Park to regroup after last year’s injury ended his Short-A Lowell season at 30 games. The rst baseman and outelder was among the minor-leaguers invited to mini-camp and reported Feb. 24. He arrived in top shape for what he hopes is a longer season. “I put on 17 pounds since Lowell ended, all in muscle and no more fat,” the 19-year-old said. “I only played 40 games, and I lost 12 pounds of muscle. You do want to come into camp at the top of your weight because you’re going to lose 20-25 pounds during the season.” Longhi has been participating in all drills. He has been play ing rst base during elding workouts and heads to left eld to retrieve balls during batting practice. He isn’t sure whether he’ll be at rst or corner outeld this season. “It probably depends where we’re playing and what type of eld it is, whether I’m going to be in right or left,” he said. “I’m not all that fast, so I assume it will depend on which side has a bigger gap or wall or what.” Longhi hit .330 with 10 runs batted in last year. He had 10 doubles and one triple among his 36 hits. Boston minor-league hitting coordinator Tim Hyers said Longhi has been hitting the ball hard, the same way he did during his hot start for Lowell. Longhi launched multiple balls over the Field 4 left-centereld fence during batting practice Tuesday at jetBlue Park. “He got a little stronger. He looks fresh,” Hyers said. “The swing looks really good. He has a good plan of what he wants to do.” Hyers said Longhi has the pop to improve on last year’s power stats. “I don’t count out anything with him,” he said. “He’s got the strength and the bat speed to do more. It comes down to selection and getting his pitch more often.” “Lowell’s a big home eld,” Hyers said. “He drove a lot of balls that are eventually going to be home runs. If he keeps hitting the ball as hard as he’s hitting it, the power will follow.” The coordinator cited Longhi’s initiative to do well. “He comes to work every day,” he said, “and he’s focused, and he’s dedicated. He has passion about being a good hitter, and that to me is what matters the most right now.”Healthy Longhi back in spring campBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT BASEBALL Ex-Venice standout saw 2014 nish with injured thumb LONGHI Perry’s slam sinks MuskiesSTAFF REPORTPORT CHARLOTTE – Freshman Alex Perry hit a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the 12th inning, capping Salve Regina’s wild 18-14 victory over Muskingum at the Snowbird Classic. With two outs, Hunter Sleeper and Ryan Kelly singled for the Seahawks (4-5) and Joe Haley was intentionally walked to load the bases for Perry. Muskingum (3-3) forced the game to extra innings with ve runs in the eighth. Brent Robbert’s two-run single with two outs knotted the game at 14 at North Charlotte Regional Park. Muskingum 9, Wheaton 8: Matt Schappell drove in the go-ahead run in the top of the 10th with a triple, and the Thunder won their Snowbird Classic debut. Andrew Laucella went 3 for 4 for Wheaton in the victory. Baldwin Wallace 10, Ohio Wesleyan 5: Huntel Handel’s two-run single highlighted a five-run fifth for the Yellow Jackets, who stayed unbeaten with a victory over the Bishops. Handel finished the contest going 2 for 5 with 4 RBIs for Baldwin Wallace (5-0). Collin Finn had two RBIs for Ohio Wesleyan (2-3). Marietta 10, Montclair State 5: Mitch Geers broke open a tie game with an RBI double in the seventh, part of a four-run rally that gave the Pioneers the lead for good.

GOLF ROUNDUP Chip-in buoys DavisPALM HARBOR — Brian Davis takes pride in his short game, which saved him from a rough nish Thursday and gave him the rst-round lead in the Valspar Championship. Coming off back-to-back bogeys, Davis chipped in from 25 feet on the ninth green at Innisbrook for a 6-under 65, giving him a one-shot lead over past champion Sean O’Hair and Ricky Barnes. For the 40-year-old Davis, it was the perfect nish to go with what had been an ideal start. Starting on the back nine of the Copperhead course, the Englishman missed three birdie chances inside 15 feet and still went out in 30. There wasn’t a hint of trouble until a three-putt from 45 feet on No. 7 and a poor chip at the par-3 eighth that led to bogey. And right when he thought he had hit a good approach on No. 9, he heard nothing. His chip came out with more over-spin because of the grain in the grass and might have gone about 6 feet by the hole except that it struck the pin. O’Hair got even more evidence that his game is turning around by making eight birdies in the morning for a 66. Barnes, playing in the afternoon, was tied for the lead until he three-putted the par-3 17th from 35 feet and missed a 12-foot birdie putt on the last hole. Henrik Stenson, at No. 3 the highest-ranked player in the eld, made his debut at Innisbrook by dressing in the same colors as the volunteers, though it wasn’t intentional, and none of the volunteers had matching pants to go with his periwinkle shirt. He didn’t like the swing he had on the range, though he hit enough good iron shots early on to get by. Stenson hit wedge into the par-4 ninth for a nal birdie and a bogey-free 67. He was in a group that included Justin Thomas and Puerto Rico Open winner Alex Cejka. Ace, eagle boost Madsen: In Pretoria, South Africa, Denmark’s Morten Orum Madsen closed with a hole-in-one and an eagle for a 7-under 63 and a share of the first-round lead in the Tshwane Open. Madsen spun his tee shot back into the hole on No. 8, his 17th, for his ace. He eagled the par-5 ninth after reaching the green in two. England’s David Horsey joined Madsen atop the leaderboard at Pretoria Country Club. South Africa’s Wallie Coetsee and Australia’s Brett Rumford shot 64. Park, Morgan lead early: In Hainan, China, defending champion Inbee Park of South Korea and Becky Morgan of Wales shared the first-round lead at 4-under 69 in the Ladies European Tour’s World Ladies Championship. The second-ranked Park eagled the par-5 18th and had four birdies and two bogeys on Mission Hills’ Blackstone Course. She won the HSBC Women’s Champions on Sunday in Singapore for her 13th LPGA Tour title.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSBirdie nish hands Englishman lead after opening day at InnisbrookPGA TourVALSPAR CHAMPIONSHIP At Innisbrook Resort, Copperhead Course Palm Harbor Purse: $5.9 million Yardage: 7,340; Par 71 (36-35) First Round Brian Davis 35-30 — 65 Sean O’Hair 33-33 — 66 Ricky Barnes 33-33 — 66 Justin Thomas 32-35 — 67 Henrik Stenson 35-32 — 67 Derek Ernst 34-33 — 67 Brendon de Jonge 34-33 — 67 Nicholas Thompson 36-31 — 67 Alex Cejka 33-34 — 67 John Peterson 34-34 — 68 Kevin Streelman 33-35 — 68 Luke Guthrie 33-35 — 68 Shawn Stefani 34-34 — 68 Will Wilcox 34-34 — 68 Rod Pampling 33-35 — 68 Jason Kokrak 34-34 — 68 Ian Poulter 35-33 — 68 Andrew Svoboda 36-32 — 68 Adam Hadwin 32-36 — 68 Hudson Swaord 33-36 — 69 Billy Hurley III 36-33 — 69 William McGirt 35-34 — 69 Ryan Moore 34-35 — 69 Ernie Els 36-33 — 69 Vijay Singh 36-33 — 69 Lucas Glover 35-34 — 69 Je Overton 38-31 — 69 Russell Knox 34-35 — 69 Greg Chalmers 34-35 — 69 Jim Furyk 34-35 — 69 Harris English 36-33 — 69 Martin Laird 37-32 — 69 Stewart Cink 33-36 — 69 Kenny Perry 35-34 — 69 Will MacKenzie 37-32 — 69 Carlos Ortiz 34-35 — 69 Kyle Reifers 36-33 — 69 Francesco Molinari 34-36 — 70 Nick Taylor 36-34 — 70 Scott Brown 34-36 — 70 Jordan Spieth 36-34 — 70 Steven Bowditch 36-34 — 70 Brendon T odd 34-36 — 70 Jason Dufner 36-34 — 70 Charles Howell III 35-35 — 70 Jamie Donaldson 36-34 — 70 Andres Gonzales 34-36 — 70 Michael Putnam 38-32 — 70 Jason Bohn 36-34 — 70 Brandt Snedeker 37-33 — 70 Matt Kuchar 35-35 — 70 David Toms 36-34 — 70 Mark Wilson 34-36 — 70 Daniel Summerhays 35-35 — 70 Chad Campbell 36-34 — 70 David Hearn 37-33 — 70 Sam Saunders 37-33 — 70 Jonathan Randolph 37-33 — 70 Robert Garrigus 36-35 — 71 Brian Stuard 35-36 — 71 Rory Sabbatini 37-34 — 71 Adam Scott 38-33 — 71 Kevin Na 35-36 — 71 Michael Thompson 38-33 — 71 Sangmoon Bae 35-36 — 71 Carl Pettersson 37-34 — 71 Ryo Ishikawa 38-33 — 71 Spencer Levin 35-36 — 71 Woody Austin 37-34 — 71 Boo Weekley 36-35 — 71 Kevin Chappell 35-36 — 71 Kevin Kisner 36-35 — 71 S.J.

I knew if we get in a scramble offensively, that gives me a chance to offensive rebound.” No. 8 seed Florida (16-16) won several scrambles to keep its season alive. The Gators’ bench shut out Alabama 22-0 and outscored the Crimson Tide 14-4 in second-chance points and 11-5 off turnovers thanks to just six miscues. They completed a season sweep of the Crimson Tide and won for the third time in the past four. Eli Carter added 11 points and Devin Robinson 10 for the Gators, who shot 43 percent and were 9 of 29 from 3-point range. Florida coach Billy Donovan didn’t seem too bothered by those 20 misses from behind the arc because of his team’s ball movement that created the chances. “I thought we moved the ball pretty well,” he said. “I felt like offensively, we had been getting better. I thought we had some really good shots from the 3-point line that didn’t go down.” FLORIDA 69, ALABAMA 61ALABAMA (18-14) Norris 3-7 0-0 8, Taylor 6-10 3-6 15, Randolph 2-7 11-11 15, Cooper 4-7 4-5 13, Obasohan 4-7 1-1 10, Kessens 0-2 0-0 0, Coleman 0-1 0-0 0, Mitchell 0-0 0-0 0, Slaughter 0-1 0-0 0.

Hamilton, who picked up the conference’s award as rookie of the year earlier Thursday, hit six of his eight shots. Rodney Purvis added 13 points and Ryan Boatright had 12 for the Huskies (18-13), who need to win the conference championship to earn a return trip to the NCAA Tournament. UConn led 29-14 at the half after holding USF scoreless for the game’s rst six minutes. The Bulls shot just 24 percent from the oor for the half and 31 percent for the game. Nehemias Morillo had 13 points and Troy Holston Jr. had 12 to lead USF, which nished 9-23 under rst-year coach Orlando Antigua. The Bulls missed their rst nine shots from the oor before a tip-in by Ruben Guerrero and it was 17-2 UConn more than 1012 minutes into the game. A tick-tack-toe passing play from Boatright to Purvis to Hamilton to Amida Brimah led to dunk that made the score 25-5 UConn. USF scored nine of the nal 14 points of the half, but still trailed by 15. UConn pushed the lead back to 20 in the second half and was ahead 44-25 before USF put together a 6-0 run. Boatright and Hamilton hit back-to-back 3-pointers to end any threat. Last year’s national champs had lost two straight to end the regular season while USF had won two of its last ve after an 11-game losing streak. South Florida was playing without its two leading scorers. Corey Allen Jr. (15.4 points per game) was suspended last month for receiving impermissible benets while at a California junior college.

Page 4 SP The Sun /Friday, March 13, 2015 High School. North Port accomplished much on the mat this season under coach Mark Kemble, who is in his 11th season and owns a 217-24 record. The Bobcats went 19-4 in dual meets. They won their sixth consecutive District 3A-8 title, and they nished runner-up to Osceola in the regional tournament. Now, Kemble is expecting nothing less than “ve medalists. The kids we have right now — multiple kids have good shots to get to the state nals, and all ve have an excellent shot to leave with a medal. “It’s been a good season. We’ve won a lot of district titles, a lot of tournament titles. But this year is special because this was our highest nish in the regionals, and I think these are the best ve kids we’ve ever sent to states. We’ve had good kids in the past, but these kids are the best.”FINALSFROM PAGE 1 PORT CHARLOTTE — Some parents of baseball players at Port Charlotte High School are upset that renovation of a shed into a team locker room was halted. Mike LePoint, a parent of a sophomore on the varsity team, said the team uses a shed near the bathrooms by the eld as a dressing room/storage unit, but this space is shared with maintenance. According to LePoint, coach Bryan Beisner initiated the upgrade as a way to do something nice for the rst group of players he’s had all four years. But a maintenance worker complained. “The lockers, they’re in there, but they’re not nished,” LePoint said. Mike Riley, spokesman for Charlotte County Public Schools, said the baseball team has used the shed since the 1990s to store equipment, dress and get ready for games, but it’s a small “maintenance shed.” “It’s just not safe,” he added. “It’s not healthy.” He conrmed the request to remove the lockers came through maintenance. “They’ve been permitted to keep their bats, to keep their batting helmets, and stuff like that in the shed,” he said. “They just didn’t want any cloth material in there because of the weather conditions. Well, they kept leaving clothes in there, which you could imagine what that smelled like,” he said. Alternatively, he said players can use locker rooms available across the parking lot in the E and H buildings to change, shower and store their equipment, but they have been using the shed for convenience. Beisner and athletic director Bob Bruglio declined comment. Dawn Eastman, a parent of a sophomore varsity player, said team members were never told they could use locker rooms in the E and H building to store their equipment, so they were either keeping it in their cars or carrying it in their backpacks once they couldn’t keep it in the shed. Facebook is being used a vehicle to vent frustration. A recent post from the page of the senior varsity player, Brad Baker, who is recovering from a motorcycle wreck a few weeks ago, asks: “Why not? The baseball team gets no lockers? No storage area?”Contact Sommer Brokaw at 941-2061142 or at sbrokaw@sun-herald.comPirate parents see red over shed projectBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITER PREP BASEBALL: Port Charlotte ride, and the Seahawks exchanged goals with them for much of the first half. But Manalili had her A game from the start, scoring six times in the opening half to give Port Charlotte a 9-6 halftime lead. “We were flat, but once we got our pep talk we amped it up and played to our potential,” Manalili said, who has 40 goals to lead the team. It was all Port Charlotte in the second half as the Pirates won nearly every face-off, allowing them to spend nearly the entire half in Seahawks territory. Smich scored four times while Jordan Manalili, Jeydon Sultan Brittany King got in on the act late. “We knew we needed to be stronger in the second half, and we made the adjustments,” Smich said. “Once you start to score a lot on a team, they shut down a bit and you build up your momentum. We’re doing well for a first-year team. I want to keep the momentum up.” Parker said the team has had growing pains, with only five players returning from last year and 15 others who had never played before this year. But they have caught on recently. “We’ve had challenges to teach the skills and the plays. We rely on our veterans to teach them on the field and command all parts of the field,” Parker said. Cape Coral (2-6) had a balanced attack, with Hannah Sain scoring twice and five others scoring once. Meka Sillens was sent off late in the first half after two yellow cards.PIRATESFROM PAGE 1 PREP SCHEDULETODAY Wrestling State tournament at Silver Spurs Arena, Kissimmee, 9:30 a.m. Baseball Dunbar at DeSoto County, 6 p.m. Out-of-Door Academy at North Port, 7 p.m. Softball DeSoto County at Fort Meade, 7 p.m. Track Venice boys at Ed Well Kiwanis Invitational, 8 a.m. Charlotte, Lemon Bay at IMG Academy Invite, 3 p.m. SATURDAY Wrestling State championships at Silver Spurs Arena, Kissimmee, 10 a.m. TAMPA — Tampa Bay bolstered its defense with a pair of free agents very familiar to coach Lovie Smith, signing safety Chris Conte and tackle Henry Melton. Both players entered the NFL as draft picks of the Bears when Smith coached in Chicago. Terms of the agreements were not disclosed. Conte was a third round draft pick in 2011 who had nine interceptions in four years with the Bears. Melton played for Chicago from 2010 to 2013 before spending last season with the Dallas Cowboys. Dolphins sign tight end: Former Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Cameron signed a two-year contract with the Miami Dolphins, giving them a possible replacement for Charles Clay. The Dolphins gave Clay a transition tag last week, but he has been courted by Buffalo. Cornerback T.J. Heath, who played in two games late last season with Miami, signed a $585,000, one-year deal. Eagles add Cowboys star: DeMarco Murray, the All-Pro running back, agreed to a five-year contract with Philadelphia. Murray’s deal was valued at $42 million, with $21 million guaranteed, according to a person familiar with the deal who spoke on condition of anonymity because terms weren’t disclosed. The Eagles confirmed they had reached agreement on a three-year contract with former San Diego running back Ryan Mathews. In other player signings, Justin Forsett agreed to terms on a three-year contract with Baltimore, which retains its leading rusher from 2014. Atlanta signed two free agents for their defense, cornerback Phillip Adams and defensive end Adrian Clayborn. Clayborn, a first-round pick by Tampa Bay in 2011, played in only one game in 2014 due to a torn bicep. The New York Jets and cornerback Antonio Cromartie have agreed to terms on a four-year contract. Cromartie returns to the Jets after one season with Arizona, where he played for then-defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, now New York’s head coach. The Jets re-signed veteran guard Willie Colon to a one-year contract. Detroit’s website reported the team agreed to a one-year deal with defensive lineman Tyrunn Walker. The 24-year-old Walker played the last two seasons with New Orleans. The New England Patriots have signed a cornerback after losing both starters on the opening day of free agency. The Patriots picked up cornerback Chimdi Chekwa, defensive lineman Jabaal Sheard and linebacker Jonathan Freeny. Player partings: Arizona released Lyle Sendlein, the team’s starting center for the past six seasons. The move saves the Cardinals just over $3 million in salary cap space. Trent Richardson’s time with Indianapolis is over after two disappointing seasons. The former top-five draft pick acquired in a trade with Cleveland that cost Indianapolis a first-round pick in 2013 was waived after the running back played just one snap in three playoff games last season. Kansas City released wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, parting ways with a fan favorite who will finish his career as the franchise’s third-leading receiver. Bowe would have counted $14 million against the salary cap this season. In a related move, the Chiefs acquired former Pro Bowl offensive guard Ben Grubbs from the Saints for a fifth-round pick in this year’s draft.

Gordon eases on NASCAR criticismBy SCHUYLER DIXONASSOCIATED PRESSDALLAS — Jeff Gordon eased up on NASCAR after discussing track safety issues with ofcials behind closed doors. Gordon said Thursday he may have prematurely questioned NASCAR’s plans for installations of SAFER barriers after hitting a concrete wall two weekends ago in Atlanta. The energy-absorbing walls are common at tracks, but not installed in every place a car might crash. “Maybe that was me getting a little bit ahead of myself as far as what the phased plan was,” Gordon said. “All I can tell you is that everybody is doing everything they possibly can right now to speed that process up and get these walls covered. And that’s what I’m most happy about right now.” The popular driver of the No. 24 Chevrolet said Tuesday’s meeting with ofcials was “informative.” Gordon spoke at an event in downtown Dallas honoring Gordon during his nal full season as a Sprint Cup driver. There’s been increased scrutiny on the absence of SAFER barriers since Kyle Busch broke his right leg and left foot at Daytona last month. Gordon said the focus of his meeting this week was about plans at Daytona and other tracks to get SAFER barriers in all the spots that NASCAR engineers believe they’re needed. “It’s a time-consuming thing. It doesn’t happen overnight,” said Gordon, who had a hard hit into an unprotected wall in 2008 at Las Vegas that led track ofcials to install a SAFER barrier in that spot. “It’s a top priority to really make the tracks even safer than they are today and do it in as timely a fashion as what’s possible from their suppliers.” AUTO RACING: NASCAR Sprint Cup NHL ROUNDUPLightning fall to Bruins in shootout BOSTON — Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand scored shootout goals to lift Boston to a 3-2 victory against Tampa Bay on Thursday. Boston beat Tampa Bay for the 10th straight time, the longest active slide for a Bruins opponent. Since joining the NHL in 1992, the Lightning have won ve times in 48 games at Boston. The Lightning have also never beaten the Bruins after regulation in 18 tries, going 0-9-9. Tampa Bay failed to capitalize on a power play in overtime. Tuukka Rask made 35 saves for Boston, which is 6-0-1 in its last seven games, including four straight wins. Vladislav Namestnikov tied it 2-2 for Tampa Bay with 11:56 remaining in the third period when he slid the puck through Rask’s pads.BRUINS 3, LIGHTNING 2LIGHTNING 1 0 1 0 — 2 Boston 1 0 1 0 — 3 Boston won shootout 2-0 First Period—1, Boston, Pastrnak 9 (Spooner, Lucic), 7:57. 2, LIGHTNING, Stamkos 37, 15:29.

Penguins 6, Oilers 4: In Pittsburgh, Steve Downie and Patric Hornqvist scored just over a minute apart late in the third period, and Pittsburgh avoided an embarrassing collapse.

Hornqvist doubled it 1:06 later with a snap shot from the left circle to help the Penguins win for the seventh time in nine games. Stars 5, Hurricanes 3: In Raleigh, N.C., Alex Goligoski, Cody Eakin and Patrick Eaves each had a goal and an assist, sparking Dallas. Kari Lehtonen needed to make 16 saves to earn the victory in his 500th NHL game. Curtis McKenzie and Jason Demers also scored for Dallas, which led 3-1 after the first period. Blue Jackets 3, Red Wings 1: In Detroit, Scott Hartnell scored the go-ahead goal, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 41 saves to help Columbus. Fedor Tyutin and Cam Atkinson added goals, and five players had assists as the Blue Jackets won at Detroit for the second time in two tries and won the season series 2-1. AHL shakeup continues: Montreal and Winnipeg are moving their American Hockey League affiliates and the Ontario Hockey League’s Belleville Bulls will play in Hamilton, Ontario, next season. Montreal is shifting its AHL team from Hamilton to St. John’s, Newfoundland, where it will be called the IceCaps, while the Jets are moving their farm team from St. John’s to Winnipeg.

Both teams were short-handed. Memphis sat three starters: Mike Conley, because of an injured right ankle; Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, resting on the second night of a back-to-back. Memphis also held out key reserve Tony Allen. The Wizards were without one starter, Nene, for what the team said were personal reasons. Gorat nished with 22 points for Washington. Stokes and JaMychal Green had 13 apiece for the Grizzlies, who wrapped up a 1-3 trip.

The eight-member jury in Dallas concluded that the NFL breached its contracts with seven holders of tickets to the game at the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium in Arlington. However, the jury concluded the league did not defraud the fans. The NFL must pay the money to the seven fans. Five said they ended up with no seats and two said they had obstructed views at the $1.2 billion stadium for the game in which Green Bay won the championship over Pittsburgh. The jury ordered compensation ranging from $5,670 to $22,000. In Fall River, Mass., the judge overseeing the murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez struck some testimony from an employee of firearms manufacturer Glock, who said surveillance video showed Hernandez carrying a gun less than 10 minutes after the killing.TENNISHarrison outlasts Fish: In Indian Wells, Calif., Mardy Fish, playing competitive tennis for the first time in over 18 months, battled for 2 hours, 36 minutes before losing to fellow American Ryan Harrison, 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (3) in the first round of the BNP Paribas Open. Fish had two match points at 15-40 in the 10th game of the third set, but Harrison wiggled free. After both held serve to force the 12-point tiebreaker, Harrison won three points in a row to go up 5-2. Fish’s double fault gave Harrison match point and the 22-year-old closed it out with an ace.SOCCEREuropa titleholder Sevilla wins at Villarreal: Defending Europa League champion Sevilla took a big step toward the quarterfinals with a 3-1 victory at fellow Spanish side Villarreal in the first leg of last-16 matches Thursday.

Page 6 SP The Sun /Friday, March 13, 2015 impressive.” On the surface, Cobb’s line on Thursday wasn’t impressive. The right -hander gave up three runs on ve hits and a walk over 2 13 innings. He threw 47 pitches (30 strikes) and struck out four before exiting after Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson hit a oneout, two-run single in the third. But there were some positives: In the rst inning, Cobb struck out two in a perfect frame that needed 15 pitches. In the second, Cobb came back from a 30 count to strike out rst baseman Daric Barton with runners on the corners and no outs, and then induced catcher Josh Thole to ground into a 463 double play to get out of the jam after allowing just one run. “The results weren’t very good, but it’s good to have that happen so you can kind of identify things that go wrong that are going to pop up during the course of the season and be able to make those adjustments throughout the year,” Cobb said. “Because when things are going well, you’re not working on making adjustments. So there are some things I feel I can do better.” Cobb credited his perfect rst inning to the strength of his release on his pitches, but admitted he didn’t carry that same fervor into the next two frames. He didn’t want to use the word lazy, but did say he “wasn’t as aggressive out in front of my pitches as I should have been.” But recognizing it is the key, Cobb said. “You can either hang your head and walk out the door and be upset about it, or you can nd some positives out of it and try to use that to make yourself better,” Cobb said. “By no means am I doubting myself; there was enough good stuff that happened that I can learn from.” That’s part of what impresses Cash: Cobb understands he had a bad day, but his manager knows he’ll make the adjustments he needs to. Even though he has been named the opening day starter, Cobb has said he doesn’t see himself as a true ace, that he still has work left to do to earn that title. After a day like Thursday, Cash isn’t so sure Cobb hasn’t already reached that level. “He has the location, he has the pitch mix and he has the pitchability,” Cash said. “And I’ll say this: If anything, he carries himself like a true No. 1.”Contact Josh Vitale after 9412061122 or PAGE 1 RAYS AT PHILLIESWHO: Tampa Bay (3-5) at Philadelphia (5-4) WHEN: Today, 1:05 p.m. WHERE: Bright House Field, Clearwater SCHEDULED STARTERS: RH Chris Archer vs. LH Joely Rodriguez DIRECTIONS: Take I-75 North to I-275 North to Exit 30 (SR-686/Roosevelt Blvd.).

MLB: Tampa BayRays farm out prospectsPORT CHARLOTTE — Tampa Bays’ 64man spring training roster underwent its rst trims on Thursday. The Rays reassigned shortstop Daniel Robertson and outelder Boog Powell to minor league camp, giving the prospects acquired from Oakland in the Ben Zobrist/Yunel Escobar trade a chance to get atbats on the back elds. “I talked to them today after BP, and just expressed how they carried themselves, how excited we are, as an organization to have them,” manager Kevin Cash said. “I don’t know how much you value rst impressions, but they couldn’t have gone any better for both those guys.” Robertson, the organization’s No. 2 prospect according to Baseball America, went 2 for 4 with a walk in ve appearances. The 20yearold will likely report to DoubleA Montgomery to start the season. “I just need to take that condence that I had up here, start getting some at -bats under my belt and get the season rolling,” Robertson said. Powell, 22, also impressed this spring, going 3 for 7 with a double, two RBIs and two runs scored while making a few athletic catches in the outeld over his six appearances. He will either join Robertson in Montgomery or report to to Class-A Charlotte. “Individually, their makeup was great,” Cash said. “They really communicated well with the coaching staff, asked good questions and when they got their opportunities, they made the most of them, for the most part. So I don’t think it could have gone any better for those two guys, and for us as an organization to go, ‘Wow, we got really two players.’” Offensive outburst: Entering Thursday, the Rays hadn’t scored more than five runs in any of their eight spring contests. On Thursday, the offense exploded for eight in the fifth inning. Steven Souza Jr. and Logan Forsythe homered, and Tim Beckham, Nick Franklin, Alexi Casilla and Allan Dykstra delivered RBI hits as the Rays sent 12 men to the plate. “That inning was fun to watch,” Cash said. “We were due for one of those breakout innings. It seemed like everyone was squaring up baseballs, and anytime you bat around, you’re doing something right.” Versatility is key: John Jaso in the outfield will not be the Rays’ only example of versatility this spring. Souza, an outfielder, will play the second half of Saturday’s game at first base, which he played 117 times in 676 minor league games. Infielder Jake Elmore caught a bullpen session, something Cash said he’ll do more of this spring. Though Elmore likely will not catch in a game, the manager said having an emergency catcher would be a “nice luxury” should Elmore make the team as a utilityman. Elmore has the ability to play every other position, too. In 2013, he played all nine positions during the season, including five innings at catcher and an inning on the mound in Houston’s loss on Aug. 19 of that year. Injury roundup: Outfielder Brandon Guyer (side) did tee work, took dry swings and did flip drills. Cash said he “looks really good” and could return to action as soon as Tuesday. Lefthander Drew Smyly (shoulder) did more exercises and another sock -throw drill, but Cash said no date has been set for him to begin playing catch. Righthander Alex Colome was sent home sick with a fever. Cash said the reviews on his 30 -pitch live batting practice session on Wednesday were good and that all the reports the Rays were receiving about Colome from the Dominican Republic were accurate. Extra bases: Righthander Jim Miller, signed on March 4, is scheduled to make his spring debut today against Philadelphia. With Kevin Kiermaier slated to play center field and Desmond Jennings slated to play left this season, Cash said the Rays will essentially have “two center fielders.”Contact Josh Vitale at 9412061122 or jvitale@sun JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER SUN PHOTO BY KATHERINE GODINATampa Bay rst baseman James Loney reaches for the throw as Toronto’s Devon Travis tries to beat the throw for a hit during Thursday’s game at Charlotte Sports Park. MLB: Thursday’s highlightsFerrell enjoys uneventful odyssey MESA, Ariz. — Telling everyone “I’m a ve-tool guy,” Will Ferrell was off on his barnstorming tour Thursday through ve Arizona spring training games. Wearing No. 19 for every team, the star of “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” “Elf” and many other movies played shortstop for the Oakland Athletics, second base for the Seattle Mariners, center eld for the Los Angeles Angels and rst base for the Chicago Cubs. As a surprise, he pinch hit, rather unsuccessfully, for the Cubs and spent a little time as their third base coach, holding up signs, one of which said, “Remember These Games Don’t Count.” The comedian planned to play for 10 teams in ve spring training games, playing every position along the way. His police escorted car avan was to drive to his rst three stops, then he was to take a helicopter from the Diamondbacks’ spring home in Scottsdale to the Chicago White Sox’s eld in Glendale. And it was all for a good cause, he said. Before his odyssey began, Ferrell told a radio interviewer that he expected to raise $1 million to be used for college scholarships for cancer survivors. The entire tour was being chronicled by HBO for an upcoming special. Memorabilia from his journey is to be sold at auction on MLB. com with proceeds going to Cancer for College and Stand Up to Cancer. Angels 10, Cubs 9: In Tempe, Ariz., Cubs top prospect Kris Bryant homered twice, and Jorge Soler also connected in Chicago’s loss. C.J. Cron hit his second spring homer for the Angels and Drew Butera his first, a three-run shot in a five-run fifth inning. Red Sox 5, Pirates 1: In Bradenton, David Ortiz and Pablo Sandoval homered in the third inning off Pirates right-hander Ryan Beckman to erase a deficit and lift Boston. Pirates starter A.J. Burnett pitched 2 hitless innings but left two runners on base who scored on Ortiz’s three-run drive. Cardinals 8, Orioles 2: In Jupiter, Mark Reynolds hit his first home run of the spring, connecting off Bud Norris for St. Louis. Reynolds, who signed a one-year, $2 million free agent contract in the offseason, hit a three-run homer in the third inning. Phillies 6, Tigers (ss) 5: In Lakeland, Justin Verlander allowed one hit in three scoreless innings for Detroit. Verlander hasn’t permitted a run in five innings this spring and has given up only two hits. Tigers reliever Joe Nathan was roughed up for six runs while getting just two outs. He gave up five hits and walked one. Royals 10, Indians 5: In Goodyear, Ariz., Salvador Perez got three hits and Paulo Orlando hit a two-run triple off Cleveland reliever Bryan Shaw. Orlando, an outfielder from Brazil, also had an RBI single. Astros 4, Tigers (ss) 3: In Kissimmee, AL batting champion Jose Altuve had three hits and drove in a run for Houston. Jake Marisnick had two hits and scored two runs for Houston, and Gregorio Petit hit a game-ending single off Johan Belisario. Twins 7, Marlins 6: In Fort Myers, Phil Hughes failed to last two innings for the second time in as many spring outings, but Minnesota rallied from a 4-1 deficit and went ahead for good on Chris Herrmann’s sacrifice fly in the eighth. Red Sox finish deal with Cuban teen: Boston finalized a minor league contract with 19-year-old Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada. He will be assigned to the team’s minor league camp at spring training. Despite a relentless winter, the Indians are confident renovations at Progressive Field will be completed in time for the April 10 home opener. The ballpark has been remodeled with new bullpens, terraces and a two-story bar in the right-field corner that could be packed during chilly April and May nights. Jeff Wilen, a strategy director for the club, said construction was slowed by the coldest February in Cleveland history. But as long as the weather stays moderate, the remodeling should be done for the opener. New York Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia threw 29 pitches during his first simulated game of spring training and said afterward he will be ready for opening day. That was welcome news for the Yankees on a day it was announced that Chris Capuano, the top candidate to be the fifth starter, will likely be on the disabled list for the first month of the season after straining his right quadriceps.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSProjects his tour will raise more than $1 millionAP PHOTOActor Will Ferrell, right, congratulates Oakland’s Brett Lawrie after the rst inning against Seattle in Mesa, Ariz.

By AL HEMINGWAY, PGH CORRESPONDENTServing Punta Gorda and Burnt Store A section of the SUN 20 pages March 17 is a special day for the Irish. That was the day when St. Pat rick, patron saint of Ireland, passed away. Legend has it that he drove the snakes out of the country, which is not true, according to Nigel Monaghan, an Irish historian and keeper of natural history at the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin. In an article published by National Geographic, and written by James Owen, Monaghan stated that snakes never inhabited the Emerald Isle. He believes that snakes were representatives of evil, which is what St. Patrick cast out when the Irish people were converted to Christianity. As legend has it, he also used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish people to convert them. Since his death, Irish people throughout the world celebrate the life of their iconic religious leader. And Punta Gorda is no different. At the Celtic Ray, 145 E. Marion Ave., owners Kevin and Max Doyle have already made plans to host a huge event to celebrate their Irish heritage — and those who just want to be Irish for a day.Following the beat on St. Patrick’s Day CHARLOTTE HARBOR COTILLION INSIDE See FOLLOWING on page 10 PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG HERALDPUNTA GORDA Friday, March 13, 2015 Since 1893 LIKE THE PUNTA GORDA HERALD ON Women empowered by networking eventGraduates show grace & mannersCHEC butterfly garden to honor volunteer P | 6 P | 8 P | 16 adno=50481127 adno=50478772 Good Friends, Good Food, Good Times 1975 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda 941-575-7575 Prime Rib on Fridays and Saturdays Reservations recommended.

What’s Inside TABLE OF CONTENTSBusiness News .................3-7 Community Beat ...........8-17 40 Years Ago .......................13 Tarpon Page ......................18 Sports ............................19-20While I consider myself to be a very sporty person — and I am known to wear my orange and blue loud and proud — basketball is not something I follow too closely. From a basic level, this is probably because it wasn’t something my parents avidly watched. In fact, most of my knowledge of basketball came about through my high school dance team. As team captain, I learned enough about the game to know when it was time to lead my squad out onto the court for a high-kicking musical interlude before hightailing it back to our designated space in the crowd. The rst time I actually sat back and watched a full basketball game was during my junior year at the University of Florida. Seeing as though it was the Gators’ rst time bringing home the national title, you could say it was an exciting time to start watching the sport. However, I still found myself missing my pom-poms and the adrenaline rush of cheering on the team in a jazzy sort of way. And that’s probably why I am so excited to hear about the latest news from the Jammers basketball league, which is orchestrated by the Punta Gorda Police Department. For the rst time in its history, the program will offer a Jazzy Jammers Dance and Cheer Squad, a pom-based team set to perform each game during halftime throughout the basketball season. Joe King, the police lieutenant in charge of the league, credits City Councilwoman Rachel Keesling for coming up with the idea of incorporating the dance squad into the Jammers program. “She said this would be a great way to get some of these ladies who don’t want to play basketball involved, and I said, ‘What a wonderful idea,’” King said. The dancers will be taught by a core group, including Keesling and PGPD staff members and ofcers with a dance or cheer background. Not only does this give more opportunities to expand the program beyond the court, but it helps promote the PGPD’s goal of fostering positive relationships with adolescents. “Our goal when we started was to build relationships with the community, and that’s what we continue to do,” King said. The league has its roots at the Cooper Street basketball courts, where it began in 2001 as a way to reach out to at-risk youth in the community. Despite a hiatus following Hurricane Charley and a venue change to South County Regional Park, the league has continued to grow, build character and become a truly wonderful asset to the community. My own Leadership Charlotte class, thanks to the encouragement and powerful words of Jammers coach Gloria Sepanik, elected to include the league as part of its fundraising project last year. Seeing how much it has already grown since our estas makes the Class of 2014 very proud. So if you have a jazzy dancer at home, or know of a kid who can’t think of anything they would rather do than dribble, dunk and pass a basketball down court, consider signing them up for this program. Ofcers, who volunteer their time for the program, are coaching eight co-ed basketball teams this year, with the goal of signing up 72 kids between the ages of 10 and 13. Likewise, they are hoping to have 20 dancers between the ages of 6 and 13 sign up for the Jazzy Jammers. And the best part: it’s totally free for the kids — quality uniforms and poms included. To register a basketball player or dancer, visit www.puntagordapolice. com. For more information, contact King at 941-575-5525 or jking@pgorda. us. Space is limited, and forms must be received by 4 p.m. April 24. To make a charitable donation to the program, mail checks made out to “Jammers” to 1410 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda, FL 33950, in care of Lt.

Herald Page 8 Friday, March 13, 2015 PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG H H H COMMUNITY BEAT When Colony Point resident George Hindmarsh passed away in August, California resident Helen Mathis and her ve sisters knew right away they wanted to do something to keep alive the memory of their father, who was a longtime volunteer at the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center. She remembered, “Every time we were there (in Punta Gorda), he would take us down there for a walk. He would point out the birds and animals and ora. We always stopped in at the CHEC ofce. He loved that place. He really did. It was like another home to him.” Luckily, staff and volunteers felt the same way about Hindmarsh, and they worked with Mathis to come up with the idea of establishing a buttery garden to honor a nature lover who once installed a buttery garden at Colony Point, only to have an unwitting gardener, thinking they were pests, pick off all the buttery caterpillars. Mathis said, “CHEC and I dreamed it up as a way of honoring our father for his love of CHEC and nature. It’s wonderful — perfect for the education of people in the fourth-grade project (eld studies program). More than 90 people came to his memorial; we were so surprised. It was a wonderful service and everybody donated money. It’s a great way to support CHEC and an educational opportunity that would really resonate with and honor dad.” A buttery garden is indeed tting for a man who spent his whole life outside. Mathis reported that his love of the outdoors started as a kid in Arkansas, where he enjoyed hunting, shing and bird-watching. She said of those times, “He trapped muskrats during the Depression as a way to earn a few dollars for the family. There’s an old story about him being sprayed by a skunk. His mom had to banish him to the basement for a few days.” He attended Brown University as an undergraduate, served in World War II and used the GI Bill to graduate from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. During his career working outside for lumber companies, he bumped into all manner of ora and fauna and developed an abiding love for, and knowledge of, birds. If you think Hindmarsh’s life before Florida reads like a blueprint for a CHEC volunteer, you would be right. After CHEC opened in 1987, it was love at rst sight, and no job was beneath him. Martha Clemente, an educator/naturalist with the fourth-grade program, said, “He did everything here from trail guiding to trailblazing and also did maintenance. He especially loved getting rid of that Brazilian pepper. He always came in all cut up from the peppers, and we would doctor him up. Whenever he came in the door at the ofce, he always had a big smile and sparkle in his eyes. He was always cheering up everybody. We were always glad to see him.” In his later years, Hindmarsh welcomed people at the visitors center, regaling them with tales of the trails, and continued as a regular guide on CHEC trips upriver aboard King Fisher Fleet boats. Owner Capt. Ralph Allen said of the latter, “George had a big, booming voice and was always there when he was supposed to be there. He did it for a number of years, and would never call a roseate spoonbill a amingo.” Hindmarsh’s memorial buttery garden, like the man himself, is going to be a special one — a mini habitat for the once-ubiquitous monarch buttery, the ofcial buttery of the United States. The monarch is famous for its annual migration to overwinter in Mexico, and this area mostly gets stragglers from the main ow. The familiar orange and black buttery is a very specialized feeder, and milkweed, the plant it is dependent on for nectar, egg laying and food for caterpillars, is rapidly disappearing to the detriment of monarch populations. CHEC CEO Thomas Hecker hopes to change that in this little piece of Florida. He said of the planned garden, “It’s not going to have a whole lot of different plants; mostly milkweed and blue mist ower, which the male buttery needs for sperm production. We’ll start on it after March 15 and want to engage the Master Gardeners. The dedication ceremony is on Earth Day (April 22).” Mathis will be unable to make the long trek for the dedication, but her heart that day will be in the little plot of milkweed established in honor of her father. She said in a phone interview, “He was a good man, and I think people appreciated him. He loved that part of his life. We really miss him. I’m always wanting to call him up and say, ‘What’s this bird?’ I can’t do that anymore.” Visit or call 942505-9642 for more information. Better yet, take a hike on one of the trails Hindmarsh helped build. CHEC honors life of volunteer HERALD PHOTOS BY GORDON BOWERRIGHT: The buttery garden, which will be in memory of longtime Charlotte Harbor Environ mental Center volunteer George Hindmarsh, will consist of three sections. The rst will be a long, linear section, where CHEC CEO Tom Hecker, is standing. The other two sections include smaller suburbs on the other side of the elevated ramp and at the far end of the building.PHOTO PROVIDEDThe late George Hindmarsh was a devoted birder and often seen with his binoculars. He spent his senior years passing on his love of the outdoors to others through his volunteer work at the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center. A monarch buttery sips nectar from a milk weed ower in an existing Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center buttery garden. The milkweed is a critical plant for the monarchs, and the new CHEC buttery garden will be designed exclusively to attract them.

Herald Page 10 Friday, March 13, 2015 The Celtic Ray, 145 E. Marion Ave., is an authentic Irish Pub. Customers must order their food at the bar and it will be served to them. Max Doyle said it is the only day of the year that the pub serves corned beef and cabbage. “Corned beef is not a traditional Irish meal in Ireland,” he said. “When the Irish came to America, they found it to be the cheapest cut of meat and ate it.” There will be a limited menu on St. Patrick’s Day, according to Max Doyle. Four to ve items will be available so they can get the food out of the kitchen quicker to their customers. There are 40 taps with 22 different beers, everything from Guinness Stout, Smithwick’s, Tennent’s, Bass Ale, Harp, Strongbow Apple Cider, Magners Pear Ale and even an American craft beer right out of Punta Gorda — Fat Point Brewing’s Big Boca Ale. “Music starts at noon,” Max Doyle said. “Our lineup includes Stephen’s Green, Bob Vesey, Emily Ann Thompson, The Crestliners and Flurgin.” He added, “It will be a great show. It’s our day to celebrate.” Nearby, the Ice House, an authentic English pub located at 408 Tamiami Trail N., will be celebrating as well. Owner John Berry said they will have three bands and food and drink specials throughout the day. The Blue Eyed Bettys, Swamp Donkie and Berry Oakley’s Skylab will be providing the musical entertainment. “The Blue Eyed Bettys will be play ing from 1 until 3:30 p.m.,” Berry said. “They are based out of Sarasota and really draw a crowd.” Berry said at 4 p.m. Swamp Donkie will take the stage. The duo performs regularly at the pub. John Whiteleather plays guitar and vocals, and Mary Beth Ponder the violin, ddle and vocals as well. They have a unique blend of originals and cover songs that mixes Americana rock, country, bluegrass, rockabilly and Celtic music. At 7 p.m., Berry Oakley’s Skylab will be performing for the crowd. Oakley’s father, Berry Oakley Sr., was the founding bass player of the Allman Brothers Band. He has toured with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tesla, ZZ Top, Bad Company, Bob Dylan, Collective Soul, Eddie Money, Foreigner, Robby Krieger, Ian Moore and blues legend B.B. King. “I am really excited about having Skylab here,” Berry said. “They play a great mixture of music.” Berry said they will be serving traditional corned beef and cabbage that day. And, like the Celtic Ray, it is the only day of the year they do. “It’s a big day for us,” he said. “We hope people will wear their green and join us for some fun.” And if you still haven’t had your ll of Irish music, then plan a visit to Fishermen’s Village, 1200 W. Retta Esplanade, Punta Gorda. During its annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration, the village will offer informative and fun vendor displays beginning at 10 a.m., and Metamasque Face Painting will be on hand from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the second section of the village. In terms of music, it will begin at 11 a.m. and run through 8 p.m. The ofcial schedule of musicians is as follows: Pat Surface will perform from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. near Good ‘Ole Days Coffee Caf. Paul Cottrell will play from noon to 3 p.m. at Center Stage. Paul Strowe will perform from noon to 3 p.m. in the third section of the village. Lee County Pipes & Drums will parade through the village at 5:30 p.m. Kelly and Emily Ann Thompson will ofer traditional Irish Music from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Center Stage.FOLLOWINGFROM PAGE 1 Al Hemingway PGH CorrespondentAl Hemingway is a freelance writer.

They also offer tours of their elaborately decorated home, and they make it possible for tour-goers to donate money and toiletries for a local cause. Fellow members of the Punta Gorda Boat Club and neighbors have joined in their cause, dressing up as elves and giving tours to teach tour-goers about the history of each room in the Fambrough’s home, which is lled each Christmas with more than 30 trees, 400 snowmen, bright lights and many antiques and family heirlooms. For the past two years, the couple has helped AMIkids Crossroads, a nonprot that offers counseling, therapy and transi tional services for boys ages 13 to 18 into foster homes. The money raised this past Christmas, as well as the $3,200 raised from boat club garage sales, was recently donated to the AMIkids program.Fambroughs, PG Boat Club donate check to AMIkidsProvided by LENORA WEISGERBERPUNTA GORDA BOAT CLUB PHOTO PROVIDEDSue Anne and Frank Fambrough, members of the Punta Gorda Boat Club who also play the roles of Mrs. Claus and Santa each holiday season, present a check worth $4,500 to John Davidson, center, of AMIkids Crossroads.

Membership opportunities were formally introduced at TEAM’s annual meeting earlier this year and offer many incentives. In exchange of an annual membership fee, applicants will receive a signature mug, recognition on TEAM’s website and other benets. Membership is $25 per year for individuals and $50 for businesses. Applications can be found on TEAM Punta Gorda’s wesbite, CEO Nancy Johnson stated, “We felt strongly that this would provide an effective way for more of our residents to become involved in the work we do. Membership cost is nominal, but it will help support the many volunteer projects we have ongoing; many are important cooperative efforts between TEAM, the chamber of commerce and the city.” She continued, “Just as important is the fact that we are creating an expanding roster of talented people we can draw upon for new ideas and help as we continue to nurture and promote our community.” The next TEAM mixer, which is open to members and those interesting in learning more about TEAM Punta Gorda, is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. April 8 at TT’s Tiki Bar at Four Points by Sheraton Punta Gorda Harborside.

Friday, March 13, 2015 Herald Page 15 When celebrities write their memoirs, the public is eager to learn of their secrets — their hidden loves and unknown trials along their road to stardom. But everyday people have stories to tell, too, as many in Punta Gorda have been fortunate to discover. Aerospace engineer and science ction writer Bertram Ellis has been helping people leave written legacies for more than 20 years. Born in England, Ellis splits his time between Toronto, Canada, and Punta Gorda. His memoir writing workshops at Windmill Village, 215 Rio Villa Drive, Punta Gorda, are well-attended by residents of the village and others who want to document their lives but aren’t sure where to start. “Sometimes I tell them to write about the most interesting day of their lives,” Ellis said. “Then we’ll work forward and backward from there and ll it in.” As even seasoned writers know, just getting a story started is always the hardest part of writing. It’s easy to get bogged down in the mechanics of writing, too. “I tell them not to worry about grammar and spelling and how it sounds; just write the story,” Ellis explained. Later, in the editing process, someone can help with the grammatical points. Any good editor can do that, but only the writer can tell his story. Ellis’ workshops typically last 1 hour and are held once a week for several weeks. Ellis was interested in writing from a very young age. His passion for ight steered him towards aerospace engineering, and he enjoyed a long career with de Havilland Aircraft Company in Canada. He began to write science ction on the side, though. Before long, his hobby had netted a variety of books. Titles such as “Love Island” and “Fly Caribou” have ight themes, while others center on aliens or the future of the planet. He has also written seven plays that have been performed over the years. One of his short stories was named the best of the year when it was published in Andromeda Spaceways Inight Magazine. In his novel, “Smoke in the Wind,” the main character is arrested for DUI, and he is sent to a retirement home to help people write their memoirs. Memoir writing is a way for people to gain immortality, Ellis said. It lets children and grandchildren know about the lives of their ancestors, and they can be passed on to their children, too. And, he said, people who write their memoirs are less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease. Ellis has never charged a fee for his workshops and seminars on memoir writing. He believes strongly that every person has a story to tell about their own lives, and it’s important to write them for the benet of their families and future generations. Although he has always held his workshops at Windmill Village, he has considered a larger, more centralized location such as the Cultural Center of Charlotte County. “It’s a shame when people pass on and their families don’t know about their history,” Ellis said of his reason for holding the free workshops. “Besides, when I get them talking about their lives, I have more information for my novels,” he added with a chuckle.

Both received a certicate, an American history bronze medal and a check for $50.

Herald Page 18 Friday, March 13, 2015 PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG H H H TARPON PAGE PUNTA GORDA By TYRA DROUILARDCHS SOPHOMORE They say that a man’s best friend is a dog, but that statement is quite limiting, especially at Charlotte High School. Here, students wonder why the phrase is specic to a man — or a dog, for that matter. One such student who is breaking the mold in terms of pet-to-human friend ships is Charlotte High sophomore Teresa Crouch, who enjoys having one rooster and four hens as her pets. “When they started hatching, I felt my attraction towards them grow so much stronger,” Crouch said. She has had her pets for about three years and is still very glad that she got them in the rst place. Although the perk of owning poultry comes in the form of free eggs, Crouch said that is not the only reason she adores her pets. In fact, her fa vorite part is when the chicks hatch. Even though they get annoying sometimes, Crouch says she wouldn’t give them up no matter what. The same could be said for freshman Elise Ricci, who is the owner of three bearded dragons and one leopard gecko. “I have always been an animal lover, but I love reptiles a lot more,” she said. “I always thought any type of reptile was better than a dog or cat.” Ricci said her pets are all docile, loving and energetic. She has had two of the bearded dragons for a year and a half, one for two months, and the gecko has been in her care for seven months. One of her beaded dragons was a rescue, she said, getting no attention and horrible care, causing him to become aggressive. After working with him for a while, Ricci got the lizard to change. He then became loving and calm — just like the others. Ricci acknowledges that most people would say that a bearded lizard is not cooler than a dog or a cat, but she still thinks they are No. 1 in the pet world. COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSSea Grape features guest artistsSea Grape Gallery, 113 W.
