Leon Arthur is proud of his heritage. While many shy from connections to the South during the Civil War, or the War of Northern Aggression, as Arthur prefers to call it, the Brownville (just outside Arcadia) man relishes his position as the 11th Brigade commander of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. The group gets together to recognize the death of descendants of war veterans, and to socialize on occasion. Arthur, who showed up to meet me in high boots and a gray hat that looked like one found at Bull Run, is not immune to the charges of racism and bigotry that dog southern sympathizers to this day. But he believes it is a legacy that is embraced mostly by the uninformed. He quickly set the record straight for me. “I don’t care for slavery and no respectable southerner did,” he said matter-of-factly. His distaste for slavery is different from the picture most books and movies paint of the South. He carries little animosity for the North — but is quick to point out that the “winners” of the war wrote the history books — “to the victor go the spoils.” He said he grew up with an interest in the great war, and did substantial research to nd that a dozen of his family from North Carolina fought for the South. One was killed and a few were taken prisoner. His wife Evelyn is a descendant of Charles Quinn Petty (yes, the same family as famous NASCAR veteran Richard Petty), who was a major and fought with the 49th North Carolina Regiment at Appomattox. I asked Arthur about people who y the Confederate ag, arousing old wounds — especially to blacks and others who see it as a symbol of racism and hatred. “We can’t control rednecks,” he said. “But we have no radicals in our group. We get rid of them.” He said he gets little ak from anyone when his group meets to commemorate veterans killed in the war. “We put crosses on vets’ graves in DeSoto County. We have about 50 to 70 Confederate veterans buried here. If you take in old DeSoto County, which, at one time, included Charlotte, Hardee, Highlands and Glades counties, there are hundreds.” Arthur will almost for sure be on hand at 10 a.m. March 21 at Lemon Bay Cemetery, on the 400 block of Indiana Avenue (State Road 776), Englewood, when the group will meet to place a marker on the grave of Joseph C. Anderson. Anderson is from a pioneer Englewood family and, according to Reid Brandenburg, is the second Confederate veteran buried in Englewood — the rst being Pvt. William Goff. Anderson’s family moved to Englewood near the end of the “War for Southern Independence” from Georgia. Bradenburg, commander of the 2nd Lt. Joel Knight Camp 2175, is heading up the ceremony, but doing so in cooperation with the Lemon Bay Historical Society. There will be speakers, a color guard to present various ags of the Confederacy, and a rie team to re the customary three-volley salute. Participants will include Sons of Confederate Veteran Camps: Joel Knight, Charlotte Harbor; Confederate Cow Cavalry Camp 2181, Arcadia; Capt. F.A. Hendry Camp 1284, Sebring; and Major W.M. Footman Camp 1950, Fort Myers. Maybe, Arthur says, people will recognize the sacrices and stories of those who fought for the South. “It’s like Paul Harvey always said, ‘Now for the rest of the story.’” John Hackworth is editor of the Sun newspapers.

His trial date now could get pushed beyond March 23. Dwayne Johnson, 32, who is accused in the September shooting death of Kello Bonhomme and is being held at the Charlotte County Jail, previously had led a motion to dismiss the case. The defendant, at the least, had asked the judge to disallow local prosecutors from trying him. The requests came earlier this year after Johnson’s attorney, Assistant Public Defender Toby Oonk, learned a privileged video-visitation session between him and his client was recorded and sent by jail staff to an assistant state attorney for the 20th Judicial Circuit who is assigned to the murder case. Twentieth Judicial Circuit Judge George Richards heard two days of testimony about the issue and 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. The day after learning about Richard’s Murder trial delay possible; accused man speaks outBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERTRIAL | 13 ARCADIA — Walter Brown was in his 20s when he rst joined the Shoot Out gang at the rodeo. Back then, he played a whiskeydrinking, gun-toting varmint with a knack for trouble-making. Today, 43 years later, Brown is on the right side of the law. “I started in the Shoot Out as a bad guy, and then, years later, I moved to sheriff,” Brown said. “Bad guys make the best sheriffs, right?” Brown is the longest-standing member of the Tater Hill Bluff Gang, a motley crew of outlaws, deputies, saloon girls and a whiskey control inspector named Otis. Their characters are played by volunteer performers who, since 1966, have delighted thousands of spectators with their Shoot Out performance. The show on Friday afternoon opened the 87th annual Arcadia All-Florida Championship Rodeo, a three-day bulland bronc-riding bonanza dubbed “The A ‘Shoot Out’ at the rodeoBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERRODEO | 20A new $3 million grant from The Mosaic Company Foundation is the key building block toward the long-awaited construction of a new state-of-the-art rodeo arena in Arcadia. “This is a big day for the future of the Arcadia Rodeo and our community,” Rodeo Association President Don Hall said as part of Friday’s announcement. “When you under stand how long the Rodeo Association has worked on trying to make this a reality, it makes your heart feel so proud.” The facility, named Mosaic Arena, will feature 8,593 seats and allow for increased functionality for the rodeo. Ofcials also hope it will attract additional events such as concerts and other shows. Construction of the facility is expected to have an economic impact of more than $9.5 million for DeSoto County. “Given the success of the rodeo, a new arena is something the DeSoto community has contemplated for many years,” Hall said. “This is a signicant undertaking and we are pleased the Foundation, donors and community-at-large share in our vision for a vibrant DeSoto County.” The association has been privately raising funds for the past 10 months — a little more than $2 million — and, with Mosaic’s help, now has $5,044,750 toward the cost of the estimated $6 million arena. The group hopes to collect the remaining $900,000 or so through public fundraising efforts.

The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS The Port Charlotte JV softball team took an early lead over the Lemon Bay Mantas in a recent game. They had opportunities to add to their score, but failed to get the big hit and lost 6-1. Port Charlotte Pirates leadoff hitter Jaiden Dabney worked a free pass from Manta starter Kammy Gelotte to open the game. Dabney rode home on a double by Nicole Reid to put the Pirates on top 1-0. Andrianna Suarez walked to put two Pirates on. A doubleplay ball, also known as “the pitcher’s best friend,” was followed by a pop-up that ended the threat. A pair of walks to Julie Klein and Sabrina Palmer in the second inning failed to put any runs on the board, as the next hitter was caught looking at strike three. Paige Pulliam had a two-out single in the third, and Reid had another two-out single in the fth. Both runners died on the bases as the next hitters grounded out. That would be all of the hits the Pirates could muster off Gelotte. Gelotte, in her rst year as a Manta after moving from Massachusetts, got stronger as the game went on. Of her seven strikeouts, only two came in the rst three innings, and there were ve over the nal four innings. Five of the seven strikeouts were guilty of “excessive window shopping” as they took a called strike three. Lemon Bay tied the game with a run in the second on a walk and a double. They took the lead in the third with back-to-back-to-back triples by Kelsey Gelotte, Kammy Gelotte and Lauren LaMarr to take a 3-1 lead. The Mantas got two more in the sixth inning on a Kelsey Gelotte two-run single. The Mantas nished off the scoring with a run in the seventh on an error, a single and a ground out. Alexis Carpenter went the distance for Port Charlotte, giving up nine hits and just three walks. It was her second time in the circle in three years. She did a nice job mixing her pitches and keeping the batters off balance. “This was my second appearance on the mound in three years; the rst one came last Friday. My fastball was my best pitch tonight,” Carpenter said. Reid had two of the three Pirate hits (Pulliam had the other), and had the only RBI of the game for Port Charlotte. Reid is an inexperienced player in just her second year of organized softball. “I played soccer for the past seven years, but I’m going to concentrate on softball instead of soccer now,” she said. She has some skills but needs time to develop. Defensively she made a nice stumbling catch on a foul pop-up from her rst-base position, along with coming up with bad throws from the inelders. “I’ve seen more aggressiveness tonight. We run the bases a lot better now. We don’t have any real pitching, but the ones who are throwing are doing an excellent job for us. We don’t have a lot of speed either, but we’re looking a whole lot better now than we did at the beginning of the season,” the Pirates’ coach Chuck Smith said.Missed chances cost Pirates in loss to MantasBy STEVE KNAPPSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTO BY STEVE KNAPPPort Charlotte pitcher Alexis Carpenter takes this pop-up herself in the 6 -1 loss to Lemon Bay. adno=50477386 50477202 adno=50482862 Signature Sunday Brunch adno=50481235 Heron Creek Golf & Country ClubOPEN TO THE PUBLICLunch 7 1.Dinner FrfgoLD-1iItalian Pasta BarCall About Our Birthday SpecialsEvents & WeddingsMemberships Starting at $1505301 Heron Creek Blvd. North Port, FL 34287RESERVATIONS 941-240-5100www.heroncreekgcc.comLal.

Our Town Page 4 C The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS It was standing room only at Dean’s South of the Border recently as Team Charlotte Band Together kicked off their rst fundraiser for the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition. It’s the third year the group of area bands has raised money together as a team, trying to raise the most money by the CCHC’s Derby event in May. Archer Classic Rock sang and played their hearts out up on the stage, and patrons were invited to sing with the band for a $5 donation. The rst brave soul was Brandon Maddox, who had just returned from military service. The frenzied crowd cheered him on. A long table laden with boxes held rafe tickets for a wide variety of donated prizes. Gold earrings. An Avon gift basket. Four weeks of summer camp by the Boys and Girls Club. A free haircut from Solutions by Great Clips. A party at Boomers including appetizers for eight. A pair of boots. Four hours of studio time. Claudia DeBruyn, who got the group together three years ago and organized Friday’s event at Dean’s, was pleased with the turnout of more than 100 people. So was Tina Figliuolo, director of development for CCHS, who was at Dean’s, too. “Claudia is a great volunteer,” Figliuolo said. “All the money raised will go to our programs and services to allow us to continue to help the families we serve.” When DeBruyn had the idea to help the CCHC three years ago, she asked them what they needed. “They said they needed food,” DeBruyn explained. So she organized events with the bands and asked people to bring canned goods with them. The bands competed to see which band could collect the most food. “We collected so much food, there wasn’t room to store it,” DeBruyn said. “So we decided that raising money for food would be more feasible.” Last spring, Team Charlotte Band Together raised $7,400. This year they’re shooting for $10,000. Their other scheduled events are: Friday, March 27 — Blues with Daddy Mac at Two Brothers Home Cooking; 6 p.m. start, 7 p.m. band. Saturday, March 28 — Disco Bowling at Bowland Port Charlotte; 7 p.m. bowling, karaoke afterward. Sunday, April 12 — Poker Run at MS Rascals Looney Bin; kickstands up at noon. Ride to Boomers, Downtown Gatorz, Chubbyz and back to Looney Bin for a party with Moccasin Wallow. $10 for the Poker Run, $5 for the buffet. Rafe tickets for different items will be available at each event. For more information contact Claudia DeBruyn at 781-799-7570.

However when his daughter Ruby discovered that an award from the Malaysian government had been distributed to his former comrades in the Royal Air Force, she decided to do just that — surprise him. “He knew he was getting the medal, but he had no idea that I had organized a big event,” she said. “It was hard. I had to wait when he went out and go on Facebook to tell his friends.” Thursday evening, about 30 people attended the cer emony, held in the upstairs conference room at the Military Heritage Museum, located in Fishermen’s Village. Among the guests was Miller’s RAF friend Bill Morris, who traveled all the way from England to watch him receive his decoration. Miller, 72, said he was born in Jamaica, and joined the RAF in 1962 to see the world. He was assigned to the Number One Anti-Aircraft Squadron, where he was a 40-70 Bofors gunner assigned to defend airelds. “In 1966, the squadron went to Malaysia to assist them against Indonesian aggression, and remained there for two and a half years defending the air elds,” he said. “We trained in sabotage and anti-sabotage. When we returned to England, the squadron took part in ceremonies and the royal family events as well.” From there, Miller said that from 1970 to 1973, he was in Cyprus, which also had gained its independence. He was honorably discharged as a corporal in 1974, and returned to the United Kingdom. He permanently relocated to Port Charlotte in 1981. Miller soon lost contact with most of his regiment — until his daughter Ruby showed her father how to use Facebook. The power of the Internet soon reunited him with many of his old comrades — some he hadn’t been in contact with for almost 50 years. It was from them he discovered he had earned the award. The Pingat Jasa Malaysia, or the Malaysian Service Medal, was given by the king and government of Malaysia. Established March 3, 2004, the decoration recognizes service by members of the Malaysian Armed Forces during the Malayan Emergency, Second Malayan Emergency, and the Indonesia-Malaysia confrontation. It was also presented to the Commonwealth forces from Australia, Fiji, India, Nepal, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, who served there during the Malayan Emergency and the Indonesia-Malaysia confrontation. The award is in recognition of “distinguished chivalry, gallantry, sacrice or loyalty” in contributing to the freedom and independence of Malaysia. “At rst, the British government refused it,” Morris said. “They told them they had already given us the General Service Medal. After several thousand of us signed petitions, they agreed it could be issued to us — but we couldn’t wear it.” Morris said that led to another round of petitions and, nally, in 2011, the government acquiesced and said it could be worn by those who participated in the campaign. Morris took the medal to the United States to present it to Miller; the two had not seen each other in 45 years. Morris remained in the RAF, retiring after 37 years as a warrant ofcer. “Amos had the hard job manning the guns,” he said. “I had the easy job.” While stationed in Malaysia, Miller met his wife Samsiah, and they will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in May. “Their best reward was me,” Ruby Miller joked. “I was born in Malaysia.” Amos thanked everyone for attending, especially Morris, to celebrate his receiving the award. He reminisced about his time “in the trenches” while in Malaysia; the horrible conditions and ghting off mosquitoes, strange animals and snakes. “My dad still hates snakes to this day,” his son Martin said laughing. “I got text messages from 76 guys in my unit,” Amos said. “Some of them even have sons and daughters serving in the regiment today. Its legacy still continues.”Military museum plays host to medal ceremonyBy AL HEMINGWAYSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTOS BY AL HEMINGWAYBill and Pat Morris, Samsiah Miller, Karen Williams, Martin Miller, Amos Miller, Ruby Miller, Jyliana Miller, Alex Miller and Zakky Miller, surprised Amos Miller when he received his welldeserved award.

Our Town Page 6 C The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 Christian country, rights from GodEditor: Isn’t it a shame the Democrats are upset because Benjamin Netanyahu, prime minister of Israel, spoke to our Congress? Apparently they forgot when they invited the president of Mexico to speak in the People’s House he called the legal citizens of our country un-American and unpatriotic while members of their party gave him a standing ovation. The prime minister did not bash his people or his country, but only showed care and concern for them. It was great to see a leader who cared about his country and his people. It was hypocritical to call his speech political when everything they do is political and not for the good of our country. They forget that we have a two-party system in our country. In the past six years it has been their way or the highway. The legal citizens of this country also deserve to be represented by those we voted for but they have taken that right away. Many years ago the prime minister of the USSR said the only way the our country could be destroyed would be from within; he was right. What can we expect from a party that took God out of their platform during the 2012 election, then put him back in against cries of “no!” What a disgrace! Remember that the God you removed will someday be your judge. Our country is a Christian country. Our rights come from God.Rose Eyrich Punta GordaPleased with housing rejectionEditor: A special thank you from my Englewood neighbors and to the Sarasota County Commissioners for their negative vote on the proposed Tromble development on Morningside Drive.Jan Moynihan EnglewoodNot voting for RepublicanEditor: I am not a Republican, because I will not vote for a party that believes it is OK to use voter suppression to win elections, that will deny climate change, threatening our planet’s future just to pander to big oil, that shut down our government just to get their own way, whose idea of governing is to obstruct any meaningful legislation that would help the middle class, that wants tax breaks for the rich but doesn’t believe in a minimum wage, that would deport millions of people rather than give them a path to citizenship, that say they want less government intrusion, but would deny a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions, that can only win elections by gerrymandering districts, that breaks unions to favor corporations and special interest groups, that uses deception to manipulate the voting public into thinking it is on their side while voting against their best interests, that voted 56 times to repeal the ACA rather than nd better ways to improve our health insurance system so we can go back to insur ance company gouging and denying coverage for preexisting conditions, that thinks everything is a conspiracy and any regulation is a bad thing, that would have shut down our auto industry rather than bail it out, that lied to get us involved in the war in Iraq costing us billions and thousands of American soldiers’ lives, and lastly a party whose bigotry will not support our president because of his color.Dennis Bischof Port CharlotteScott’s ill-fated drug-test gambitLast week, Gov. Rick Scott nally did the right thing with the Republican par ty’s long-running campaign to have all Florida welfare recipients tested for illegal drugs: He gave up. It was an ill-conceived and doomed effort from the beginning, one that only left the impression Scott and the Republican Party were using the issue solely to gain political credibility among the conservative base. The ultra-hard-line-on-drugs governor and Republican Party rst insisted that all state employees, all state job-seekers and welfare recipients be tested. Except, of course, they exempted themselves from the drug-testing law. Apparently if you are a Republican in Tallahassee, what’s good for the goose, is only good for the goose. The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution prohibits unlawful search and seizure, and courts have repeatedly found blanket drug testing by governments on their employ ees to be unconstitutional. The government, unlike private companies, can only drug test employees where the use of drugs are deemed high risk. Scott and the Republicans knew this before they passed their drug-testing law. Florida’s appeal for blanket employee-testing appeals made it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which refused to give it the light of day early last year. No surprise. Last week, the other part of the state’s drug-testing program — Scott’s case aimed at people receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families — died at a lower level, the U.S. Circuit Court. The good news is that only $300,000 was spent on doomed appeals this time. The Republican leaders in Florida acted shamefully passing a drug-testing bill they knew was unlikely to pass a court test while exempting themselves from the test. The only reason to say you believe in drug tests, while exempting yourself from the test, is a naked attempt to appeal to your political base. It was well past time to put this to rest. Take government out of educationEditor: I applaud the letter which appeared in the Sun on March 10, “Testing worked well in the 1950s.” It is just coincidental that we apparently had the same curriculum, the quizzes, testing, the California Achievement Test, etc. I was appalled when I read the article concerning the no-testing requirement. My graduation from high school was in June 1951, and I was well-prepared for the world of work. Let me remind you that I came from a so-called Third World country, the Republic of Panama, being educated in the Silver Schools of the then-Panama Canal Zone schools system. Yes, a segregated system. Our graduates are located throughout the world and occupy high positions. It is apparent that testing did not preclude them from achieving. Upon my induction into the United States Army, and my migration to the U.S. for basic training at Fort Dix, N.J., after meeting other recruits from various states, I discovered from various conversations with them, that something was lacking in the educational system. Take government out of education, and leave education to educators. I am a rm believer in testing. How will one know whether something works or not if it is not tested? Remember Dr. Spock? Just forget social promotion. My college degree is a Bachelor Of Science In Education, vocational education. Charles Meyers Port CharlotteJust say ‘no’ to expansionEditor: No, no, no, to another Justice Center building. Barbara Scott worked in the original courthouse in 1986, when I did too, (before she was the clerk of courts). She knows of the cramped ofces all the elected ofcials had at the time. In July 1989, Building B in Murdock opened to the public. In 1999, the Justice Center opened to the public. After the “original courthouse” remodel, residents had to go to three locations, the “courthouse” to register to vote, the “old bank” to pay taxes and register homestead, and the Justice Center for all court processes. The Justice Center was built on partially, “eminent domain,” municipal mobile home park property. The Justice Center has ve oors of “unused oor space” in its hallways. The taxpayers of Charlotte County paid for this “courthouse on the water” without preparing for the future of the court system. The Justice Center has more space in one hallway than the property appraiser’s ofce had in the third oor addition of the courthouse that we used at the time. Please, all residents, newer, or those who have been here for the 30 years or more that I have, tell the clerk’s ofce to utilize the large amount of “unused space” and make partitioned ofces, and make the city of Punta Gorda sell the adjacent property “for prot.” No other courthouse in this part of Florida has “waterfront property” at the taxpayers’ expense, or “wasted hallways.” Beth Degnan MurdockNo ‘muzzle,’ disgruntled employeesEditor: The article “Climate-change muzzle?” seems to me to be an example of a poorly researched, non-news event that I am surprised a newspaper would accept (except maybe on the editorial page, where we know “opinion” and not news is the motivation for publication). It seems as though the basis of the article is a disgruntled employee. When the reporter (activist) researches the claim, no such policy exists, the “superiors” communicated the message. Included are comments by a “former employee” pouring more gas and rumor into the mix. Sounds like sour grapes. Please, raise your standards. The article clearly is a political swipe at Governor Scott, and does not belong as a 2 inch headline on Page 1.Robert McAlister Rotonda WestAuxiliary members serve vital functionEditor: I had thought about joining the USCG Auxiliary for a few years, but always pushed it to a back burner. In 2014, I made friends who were active members. I witnessed their growth in skills and knowledge from being members. I’ve now also adopted these skills since joining. I’ve gained a sense of pride from providing life-saving services. I also discovered the fun and fellowship of belonging to a local Auxiliary. Flotilla 87 has over 40 volunteers dedicated to safer recreational boating. Responsibilities include the area of Lemon Bay and Placida Harbor between Manasota and Boca Grande bridges and the adjacent waters in the Gulf of Mexico. The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is a uid entity, relying upon its members to grow and support its missions. The Auxiliary’s average age is in the mid to high 50s. By working together, the younger and older generations can grow in experience, recruit more younger members and solidify the Auxiliary’s role as a part of Team Coast Guard. Whether you want to be out on the water as boat crew, working a public affairs booth, doing vessel exams or helping out with administrative duties, your work will be valued. The Auxiliary will provide you the training and opportunity to use your skills and time to help your country. Flotilla 87 in Englewood meets the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at 1949 Englewood Road. Visitors are welcome. For more information, visit our website www. Lane EnglewoodOne more big election to goKathy Dent was rst elected Sarasota County’s supervisor of elections in the year 2000, so she wasn’t in ofce for the absurdist drama of that election year in Florida. She’s been here for all the follow-up chapters, though: the conversion to electronic balloting, the reconversion to electronics with paper backup, the establishment of early-vote poll sites, the expansion of absentee balloting and then the contraction of early voting and difculties created by photo-ID laws. A signicant transformation, and it hasn’t all been smooth. Dent’s bleakest hours came after a glitch in the 2006 election resulted in an extraordinary undercount in an extremely close congressional race, and she was dogged by a vocal group of elections-rights activists in the years that followed. Announcing her decision not to seek re-election in 2016, Dent recently said, “I have a passion for elections, not politics.” True, she never has seemed entirely comfortable with the bright lights. But that hasn’t detracted from her commitment to transparency and fair elections, nor overshadowed the common decency that’s always been evident.Air trac disturbs sleepEditor: Why doesn’t the Sun publish a schedule of commercial (Allegiant) arrivals and departures at Charlotte County’s airport?

The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 C Our Town Page 7 VIEWPOINT The true scandal of the Tom Cotton letter to Iranian leaders is the manner in which the Republican Senate appar ently conducts its affairs. The document was crafted by a senator with two months of experience under his belt. It was signed by some members rushing off the Senate oor to catch airplanes, often with little close analysis. Many of the 47 signatories reasoned that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s endorsement was vetting enough. There was no caucus-wide debate about strategy; no consultation with Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, who has studiously followed the nuclear talks (and who refused to sign). This was a foreign policy maneuver, in the middle of a high-stakes negotiation, with all the gravity and deliberation of a blog posting. In timing, tone and substance, it raises questions about the Republican majority’s capacity to govern. It is true that President Obama set this little drama in motion. Major arms-control treaties have traditionally involved advice and consent by the Senate. Obama is proposing to expand the practice of executive agreements to cover his prospective Iranian deal — effectively cutting senators out of the process. By renewing a long-standing balance-of-powers debate — in a way that highlights his own propensity for power-grabbiness — Obama invited resistance. And there is a practical argument for Senate approval of arms-control agreements: It strengthens and empowers the president in punishing violations. The whole U.S. government is placed on record promising consequences for infractions (if, of course, the Senate concurs). The exact shape of a possible Iran deal remains unknown. I’m on record predicting that it may be a bad one — a very unlikely throw of the dice that a terror-sponsoring, clerical regime will become a minimally responsible regional power. But the half-baked Cotton letter was a poor instrument to express concern. First, the bleedingly obvious: If Republican senators want to make the point that an Iran deal requires a treaty, they should make that case to the American people, not to the Iranians. Congress simply has no business conducting foreign policy with a foreign government, especially an adversarial one. Every Republican who pictures his (or her) feet up on the Resolute Desk should fear this precedent. In this particular situation, paradoxically, the main result is not a weakened presidency but a weakened legislature. Corker has been toiling with the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee, Robert Menendez, to craft legislation that would require Senate approval of an Iran deal. Before the Cotton letter, Corker was two votes away from a veto-proof, bipartisan majority. But now Obama and Minority Leader Harry Reid are using the letter to argue that Republicans are only engaged in partisan games. Even peeling a few Democrats off the Corker/ Menendez approach could prove decisive. If the Corker bill fails narrowly, Obama might have Cotton’s missive to thank. A nal objection to the Cotton letter concerns, not institutional positioning, but grand strategy. The alternative to a bad nuclear deal is not war; it is strong sanctions and covert actions to limit Iranian capacities until the regime falls (as it came close to doing in 2009) or demonstrates behavior change in a variety of areas. But this approach depends on the tightening of sanctions in cooperation with Europe, as well as Russia and China. And this effort can only be held together by the impression that America has negotiated with Iran in good faith. So negotiations are actually an important part of any attempt to isolate Iran. The key is where we draw our red lines. The Cotton letter creates the impression that Senate Republicans are rooting for negotiations to fail — which would complicate our attempt to maintain strong sanctions if negotiations end up failing. In the aftermath of the letter, we are seeing the logic of partisan escalation. Didn’t Democrats open their own rogue negotiations with Nicaraguan dictator Daniel Ortega in the 1980s? Or sip tea with Syria’s Bashar al-Assad against the wishes of the George W. Bush administration? Of course they did. But justifying a bad idea by recounting a history of bad ideas is a particularly bad way to conduct foreign policy. It is the crutch of a partisan, not the argument of a statesman. This is presumably the reason we have a Senate, not only a House. A sixyear term should ensure an extra 30 minutes to read a document and think through its implications. Michael Gerson’s email address is michaelgerson@ letter: The roughest of rough drafts Michael Gerson Abraham Lincoln said, “The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation is the philosophy of government in the next.” And from Thomas Jefferson, “An enlightened citizenry is indispensable for the proper functioning of a republic.” Indeed, any society must tailor the education of its young to the preservation of the social order. In the 1600s the colony of Massachusetts required parents to “make certain that their charges could read and understand the principles of religion and the laws of the Commonwealth,” but nothing in this statement required a child to be educated in a school. In the 1840s a large number of Irish Catholic immigrants in New York sought neighborhood control of their schools to shelter their children from a Protestant curriculum. Our early schools were expected to support our prevailing Christian religion. In 1837 Massachusetts formed the rst state board of education with Horace Mann as commissioner. Mann argued that our schools should be non-sectarian, and education should promote the continuation of our free society. Over time, the Massachusetts standards became the educational model for all the states. Based on our history, it is well-established that our schools should support the continuation of our society, but at the same time the First Amendment decrees that no governmental agency shall favor any religion. When the nation was almost homogeneously Christian, some people might have argued that Mann’s desire to provide non-sectarian education was in conict with his belief that education promote the continuation of our social order. Now, fast-forwarding to my own youth, I recall almost no references to religion in the public school texts of the time (1950s) except brief mention of the Crusades, and contemporaries I’ve questioned have the same recollection. Non-sectarian education in the public schools by then was well-established. Now fast-forward to Charlotte County, and the present. We have for several months been involved in a controversy between a group of citizens and the School Board over the presentation of religious information in two history books used in our school system. These books involve substantial references to major world religions, and at issue were seven citations from these books which were regarded as incorrectly representing the Christian and Muslim faiths. I attended the initial meeting at which this complaint was formally aired before the School Board. The committee, comprising 10 members, was selected by the school superintendent. Only two members were present to represent the complainants. Six were associated directly with the school system, and two were community members closely associated with the school system. Why did Mr. Whittaker pick a group so very obviously out of balance? Wouldn’t it have been fairer to permit the complainants to select half of the committee members? The proceedings resembled a Putin election. It appeared that those representing the school had coordinated their arguments in advance: one of them would state their opinion, and one or two more would register their agreement. Then they would call for a vote, and 8 to 2, the school board won, every time. These books were chosen at the state level, but the state of Florida has shifted responsibility for text book selection to the local school districts. The districts will establish committees, provide public notice and accept public input to these selection processes. The public is allowed access to the materials under review and may submit comments. If we are going to locally select textbooks, then I suggest we avoid caustic local disputes by adopting two fundamental principles. First, references to religions in textbooks should be limited to discussion of any historical causation related to the actions of religious groups. Such descriptions should assiduously avoid, or at least minimize, dealing with the spiritual beliefs that dene any religion. Second, religion is spiritual, not logical. So it is impossible for, say, an atheist author to fully understand the subtleties of Christianity or any other faith; likewise, a Christian author cannot fully understand the Muslim faith. So the only reliable way to decide whether a statement is sectarian is to allow the members of all interested faiths to comment. Then we should agree that if any statement in a textbook offends believers of any faith, that statement is ipso facto sectarian, and must be eliminated from the book. As with all rules, ambiguous situations will arise. But incorporating these principles into our textbook selection process would avoid much unnecessary controversy and help us all avoid ill will.

Religion and the public schools: past to present John Doner I had two rotten teachers during my school years. You can learn a great deal from those who don’t have your best interests at heart. It’s smart to pay attention to the opposition. It’s often your enemies and not your allies who teach you how to ght most efciently and stand up for yourself. The rst teacher categorized me as a version of the demon child from “The Bad Seed.” I’d been “skipped” from second to fourth grade but felt so out of place after two weeks with kids so much bigger than me that they seemed to cast looming shadows, with my parents’ approval I asked to be returned to my peers in a third-grade class. No big deal, right? Except the teacher refused to recognize me as part of the group. I was a cuckoo in the nest. If I raised my hand, she’d say, “I’d like one of my own students to answer this, Gina.” If I did well on an assignment, she’d only write “Correct” when she wrote “Good Job!” on the tops of papers from other kids who did less well. When I asked her in tears, one day after school, what I could do better, she told me to stop “acting like Sarah Bernhardt.” I was eight years old and had no idea what she was talking about. Neither did my parents. We had to go to the public library to look it up. Neither of my parents had graduated from high school, meaning they were too intimidated by teachers to defend me against the insult, and so I just went back to class. Yet something changed. I knew for certain that I could do nothing to make the teacher like me and I stopped trying to get her affection. But I didn’t stop trying to get her attention. I didn’t stop raising my hand when I knew the answer and I worked hard to make sure I knew a lot of them. I became effective and deant without being impolite. That’s served me well. The second teacher, this time in high school, was a version of Muriel Spark’s charming char acter Miss Jean Brodie. Around her formed a small coterie of admiring girls, of which I was one. In contrast to my earlier experience, I was now part of the inner circle, one of la crme de la crme. We’d sit in a circle after school and read poems. We’d listen, enthralled, to stories about boys who had loved her during college and whose hearts she’d broken to marry the love of her life. She wrote us notes during school breaks to tell us we were in her thoughts. Over one of those breaks, my mother was diagnosed with bone cancer and given a few months to live. When I went to tell the teacher, she explained to me in a gentle voice that I shouldn’t expect the little group of students to shoulder such a burden. She said it would perhaps be better for everyone if I spent less time in her presence. From that teacher, I learned that intelligence without emotional generosity means nothing, that narcissism unchecked is poisonous and that sometimes it is far more honorable to be refused membership to a group than to be part of it. That lesson left welts. But from my best teachers — and there were far many more of those — I learned that patience, creativity and being able to see an individual’s talents can provide even the most vulnerable child a sense of wild possibilities. I had wise teachers who, by the mere fact of remembering a story I’d told or by taking my friends and me seriously, made school the safest place in the world. There were teachers who made books sacred yet accessible and who deciphered science and history. There were teachers who let me cry on their shoulders while relentlessly insisting I do better work. The best taught me wonder fully. The worst taught me much.

YES YES YES YES YESCHARLOTTE COUNTY COMMISSION — HOW THEY VOTED TUESDAY BILL TRUEX District 3 KEN DOHERTY District 1 CHRIS CONSTANCE District 2 TRICIA DUFFY District 5 STEPHEN R. DEUTSCH District 4 SOUTH OF PUNTA GORDA — The 20-yearold at-fault driver in a Thursday-morning injury crash has been charged with three counts of DUI with damage to property or a person, after drugs and alcohol were found in her system, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report made available Friday. Ashten Elizabeth Dietrich, 20, of Cape Coral, was driving a Chrysler 200 west on Harborside Boulevard shortly after 5:30 a.m., when authorities say she ran a stop sign and was struck by a northbound Ford Taurus on Burnt Store Road, just south of Zemel Road, near Burnt Store Marina. Dietrich and the driver of the Taurus — Mistie Brown, 26 — were taken to Cape Coral Hospital with injuries. A road sign allegedly was wiped out in the wreck, hence the third DUI-with-damage charge. Trafc in the area was detoured for about two hours. A doctor at the hospital a few hours after the accident provided an investigator with Dietrich’s urine sample, which tested positive for amphetamine and cocaine metabolite; and her blood sample, which showed a blood-alcohol content of 0.171, the FHP report shows. Florida’s legal BAC limit is 0.08. Dietrich was asked to perform some eld-sobriety exercises in the exam room at the hospital — she reportedly failed one, passed another, and couldn’t perform another part of the test due to a leg injury. She was arrested and transported to the Charlotte County Jail that afternoon, where she remained Friday on $6,000 bond.Cops: Man rapes childA Port Charlotte man has been accused of raping an 8-year-old girl multiple times, once after she claims she was drugged. Michael Jude Boccio II, 29, drove the girl to a wooded area Tuesday night after taking her to dinner, a Charlotte County Sheriff’s report shows. After the two got out and walked around, Boccio picked up the girl and put her in the back seat of his truck. Boccio then allegedly performed a painful sex act on the girl, made her perform a sex act on him, and then had intercourse with her. It’s unclear from the report where, exactly, the alleged incident took place or what the girl’s relationship is to the accused. One of the girl’s relatives took her to the Sheriff’s Ofce Thursday after learning about the story, and the girl told investigators what she says happened Tuesday. The CCSO report shows the girl further stated, “(Boccio) gave her and two other juveniles pink medicine that made her feel dizzy and couldn’t see straight. The three juveniles sat on the couch and (Boccio) carried each of them into his bedroom and placed them on the bed,” and then he engaged in sex acts with the 8-year-old. It’s unclear when that alleged encounter took place. Authorities say the girl may have been sexually battered by Boccio “over several years.” Deputies tracked down Boccio late Thursday night at a Port Charlotte pub. He was arrested and booked into the Charlotte County Jail early Friday on three counts of sexual battery by an adult on a child — a capital felony, potentially punishable by life in prison. He was held without bond.Report: Woman, 91, helps shoplifterMURDOCK — A 91-year-old woman avoided a shoplifting charge because Sears does not pursue prosecution against anyone older than 80. However her much-younger shopping partner wasn’t as lucky. Gaby Merino-Natteri, 33, of North Port, and the older woman, Angelica Marcos de Natteri, had a 5-year-old child in a stroller with them as they entered the Sears at the Port Charlotte Town Center mall Thursday evening, a Charlotte County Sheriff’s report shows. Authorities say the women, with the child and stroller, went into a changing room with three pairs of shoes and some clothes from the Children’s Department. When they came out, the merchandise wasn’t visible. The shoppers allegedly had hidden the shoes and some clothes in a purse, and more clothes “under FHP: Driver had drugs, alcohol in system | POLICE BEATThe information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriff’s office, Florida Highway Patrol, jail and fire records.

The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 C Our Town Page 13 FROM PAGE ONE A resolution originally drawn up to thwart the state Legislature’s defunding of regional planning councils was placed on the back-burner Friday after a bill was amended this week. The Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council, one of 11 statewide organizations that bring neighboring communities together for the preservation and enrichment of local economies and natural habitats, came to the consensus at their regular meeting in Fort Myers that the amended Senate Bill 484 no longer threatened the organization. “We decided we aren’t going to send it,” Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council Executive Director Margaret Wuerstle said Friday following the meeting. “Bill 484 was amended and now it doesn’t have a negative impact on RPC.” According to Wuerstle, the issue of the bill, prior to its amendment this week, was that Gov. Rick Scott approved legislators’ plans to defund the regional councils and take much of the “responsibility” of local communities away from the RPCs. The 36-member Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council consists of county and city commissioners from Sarasota, Charlotte, Glades, Lee, Hendry and Collier counties. North Port City Commissioner Cheryl Cook, a council member, expressed her concern over the bill coming down from the Legislature earlier this week, and spoke in favor of the resolution prior to it being placed on hold. “What Tallahassee is trying to do is make all decisions about what will happen in your regions,” Cook explained. “This whole legislation is outrageous to me. They (legislators) don’t know all the details of what is going on in our communities. We don’t want them making decisions for the things that are important to us in our areas.” Prior to Friday’s RPC meeting, Cook said she would be traveling to Tallahassee next week to speak personally to legislators regarding the topic and others. Wuerstle con rmed that several members of the RPC would be traveling to Tallahassee next week, but now that the SB 484 has changed, the resolution would not be discussed during their visit. “The initial information we received was that the senators wanted to take the RPCs down to eight or nine, then the revised bill stated to just get rid of the Withlacoochee (north of Tampa) RPC. There’s been a lot of hearsay though — I do not have a direct answer,” Wuerstle said. “There’s so many issues that are up in the air the council thought it would be better to hold off and get more information and have oneon-one conversations with representatives. It appears all we’ve been getting is secondhand information.” Though the resolution is no longer a focus for the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council, remaining a strong, working unit is a priority for the group. Cook’s statement earlier this week went along with what Wuerstle said Friday. Cook said that the RPC wants to retain control of the issues coming before it. Wuerstle boasted of the council’s efforts to maintain itself without state control. “The positive thing out of the meeting today, despite the concerns about these bills, is my council recognized the need for these six counties to stay together and work because of all the good that has already come out of working together,” she said. “(The counties are) looking at doing an updated interlocal agreement to ensure this regional council stays together no matter what. They are sure of one thing, and it’s the role of this RPC.” Wuerstle named a number of issues the RPC has its hand in between the six counties it rep resents, including hurricane evacuation studies, economic development, environmental studies, promotion of arts and culture as a regional economic driver, grant-writing and research for municipalities, Veterans Affairs projects and initiatives, and shopping and recreational studies.Email: sgholar@sun-herald.comRegional Planning Council resolution on holdBy SAMANTHA GHOLAR STAFF WRITER COOKdecision, Johnson granted the Sun an interview request. The accused said he still doesn’t believe he will have a fair chance in court. “I’m scared to go to trial now,” he said. After what was essentially a status conference Friday at the Charlotte County Justice Center in Punta Gorda, it’s looking like Johnson may not have to go to trial for a little while longer. Oonk used the hearing as a chance to update 20th Judicial Circuit Judge Donald Mason, who had recused himself from hearing the motion to dismiss but will preside over the trial. Oonk said he explained to Johnson that he can’t le any direct appeals until after the trial, but he could le a petition for writ of certiorari with an appellate court. Oonk said he informed Johnson there is a “very high burden” required to be granted such an appeal, and it is against his “best legal opinion” to try for it, but he said Johnson has indicated he wishes to go for it anyway. Mason said he is going to proceed as if Johnson’s trial will start March 23, until a petition for writ of cert is actually led. Another court date has been set for Thursday to see where things stand, and whether Johnson changes his mind about trying for some sort of appeal. During his recent half-hour interview with the Sun , Johnson said he takes issue with the fact that a Charlotte County Sheriff’s internal affairs investigation was the main source of almost all the information about how and why privileged conversations were being recorded and sent by jail staff to prosecutors. The investigation revealed at least ve such communications were recorded and sent to prosecutors, and 1,900 more privileged video chats may have been recorded. “It’s a mistake if it happens one or two times,” Johnson said. “This happened 1,905 times. There’s no mistake.” The Sheriff’s Ofce, which runs the jail, cleared its own personnel of wrongdoing. “How can they investigate themselves?” Johnson said. “That’s unbelievable.” The defendant spoke only briey about the early morning of Sept. 9, which is when Bonhomme, 40, was found shot to death on a desolate road just north of the Murdock Walmart. “I was at my house,” said Johnson, of Port Charlotte. Bonhomme had been arranging to meet another man — Freddie Campbell, 28, of North Port, the co-defendant in the murder case — to buy cocaine, a sheriff’s report shows. A woman who said she was hiding in Bonhomme’s Ford Explorer when he drove to meet Campbell for the drug deal claims to have heard Johnson’s voice at the scene. She says she heard Johnson and Bonhomme arguing before hearing three gunshots. “My family knows I didn’t do this,” Johnson said. “And I want the victim’s family to see I didn’t do this. Now I won’t have a (fair) chance to do so.”Email: akreger@sun-herald.comTRIALFROM PAGE 1 current facility was badly damaged after Hurricane Charley in 2004. Plans had been underway for years to build a new arena next to the county-owned Turner Agri-Civic Center. The group purchased a large tract of land adjacent to the Turner Center in anticipation of building a facility there but had struggled to raise enough funding to begin construction. Bo Davis, senior vice president of Mosaic’s Phosphate Operations, said the company is excited to continue its support of the DeSoto community. “We’re thrilled to be a part of this and part of the community moving forward,” he said. “The rodeo is important to this community, and it’s important to Mosaic and the Mosaic Community Company Foundation. We think this will be a long-term partnership not only with the rodeo, but Arcadia and DeSoto County.” Mosaic Company Foundation Executive Director Kari NiefeltThomas says the company worked closely with the rodeo to ensure it was in a position to be eligible for its grant program. “The rodeo was interested in our support, and we met with them to talk about what the grant proposal would look like and some of the things they would have to do ahead of time to be in the right place to submit an application,” she said. “They went ahead and did the work necessary. We’re committed to the long-term economic health and vibrancy of DeSoto County and this rodeo is an important step.” Rodeo ofcials say there is still some design work left to do on the project, but they hope to begin construction as early as June. They estimate it should take approximately seven months from groundbreaking to nish the facility, leaving the possibility the arena could be ready in time for next year’s March rodeo. The current rodeo grounds will continue to play host to many of the youth rodeo events, and discussions are also underway with fairground ofcials about potential continued use of the site. DeSoto Administrator Mandy Hines said the county is looking forward to working with the rodeo to nd ways to utilize its facility in conjunction with the new arena. “We were all here in 2004 when (Charley) struck this community and threatened to take what we struggled to build away, and became a very difcult time but it also showcased how this community pulled up and stood together,” she said. “We’re excited to have a venue that will continue to attract world-class competitors to our area, and to bring the tourism that will help our community develop as a whole.” The annual threeday rodeo — which began Friday — is an important economic driver for DeSoto, with an estimated 94 percent of attendees traveling from outside the county. Last year’s event attracted nearly 16,000 visitors and brought approximately $1 million in economic benets to the area, organizers say. The rodeo was founded in 1928. In 1973, it joined the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. It attracts world-class cowboys and stock as part of a national competition. “Because of this grant, I can almost assure you the rodeo will be in business another 87 years,” Hall said.ARENAFROM PAGE 1 Right: An Artist’s rendering of the Mosaic Arena.

Our Town Page 14 C The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 RELIGION NEWS When we pursue a goal in life, typically there are certain prerequisites involved with that goal’s pursuit. To teach math or English, foreign languages, history, etc., you normally need to satisfy a set of basic education courses. Occasionally prerequisites require an apprenticeship or special training in elds like medicine, engineering, science or social work. If you plan to enter the ministry, you’ll have to study biblical languages, theology, psychology, nance, church administration and interper sonal relationships. Of course, all those areas of study must be bathed in prayer. A good place to start reading is the Psalms. The prayers of Paul in his letters to the churches also warrant our study. Anyone preparing to become a minister without saturating their efforts in prayer will face failure. In 2 Samuel 6:6-7, David tried to bring the Ark of the Covenant into Jerusalem, but his failure to ask the priests for guidance cost Uzzah’s life. He was struck dead by the Lord when the oxen pulling the cart car rying the Ark stumbled and Uzzah touched the Ark trying to steady it. Uzzah‘s death initially made King David angry. But after three months of storage at the house of Obed-Enom, the king made a fresh effort to move the Ark to Jerusalem, and a different processional was initiated. This time the priest took six steps and sacriced a bull and a fatted calf. David also danced before the Lord with all his might. The lesson here is both simple and sublime: When we seek to bring God’s presence into our lives in any processional, we must begin with worship. Worship was missing in the rst attempt. But when the second effort was preceded by sacrice and worship, God smiled upon the procession and saw the Ark safely into Jerusalem to a newly prepared place for it. To invite God’s presence into our midst, wor ship must be the highest priority in that invitation. Never take God or His presence for granted. His presence with us is truly something to celebrate. Dear Lord, when we try to help You out, may we then realize that You’re always waiting for us to invite You in into our lives by the process that moves God’s presence front and center and all we are and do. In His praiseworthy name we pray, Amen. The Rev. Larry Armbrust, a retired United Methodist Florida Conference pastor, lives in Port Charlotte.

The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 C Our Town Page 15 RELIGION NEWS “As the ning pot for silver, and the furnace for gold, so is a man to his praise.” (Proverbs 27:21)Praising God is one of the most wonderful privileges Christians have. Once we are saved, our eyes are open to the great and mighty works of God. Our ears can hear His word, which will increase faith to live a holy and separate life for God. As we grow, line upon line, precept upon precept, we marvel at who God is and what He has done for us. Then we can truly see the cross for what it is and what Jesus died for. That heartfelt appreciation turns into praise, adoration and worship. Do you ever think, “Why me, Lord, why am I honored to receive your grace and love?” It is actually a staggering thought. Praise will ow out of you effortlessly when you focus on what you have — eternal life, and what you have escaped — the ery pit of hell. Learning to praise God and worship Him is an important part of who a believer is. For some, raising their hands, closing their eyes, and disappearing into God’s presence is foreign and surreal. God desires that we come into His presence and wait upon Him. To worship God is critical to our relationship with Him. God deserves everything that we can possibly thank Him for, because there is so much more we aren’t even aware of ... Take time to count your blessings and lay them at His feet in love and adoration. Your words of thanksgiving and praise reect the condition of your heart. Be careful that you don’t get distracted by what the world thinks is important and miss out praising the lover of your soul and the Lord and Savior of your life. It is far too easy to be distracted with unimportant things and leave God out of the equation ... it’s all about Jesus and what God has done for us. We will spend eternity with God and His Son. Thank Him for everything you have and allow the Holy Spirit to worship God through you, which, in reality, allows God to worship God.

Our Town Page 16 C The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS So for more than 10 years, Port Charlotte High School has held its annual chalk drawing festival in March. March is usually the choice because it ties in to Youth Art Month. This year it was held Feb. 26. Why? “With all of the mandated testing, this was one of only two non-testing days available!” Tifny Coffey, PCHS, Advanced Placement Art and Photography teacher said in an email to the Sun. CHS accepts Tarpon of the Year nominationsCharlotte High School celebrates outstanding Tarpons at their Renaissance event each May. Tarpons are recognized in three categories: educator, non-instructional staff, and alumni/ contributor. Here’s the criteria and how to submit nominations, according to the high school: An educator must have 10 consecutive years as a staff member at CHS to be nominated. The nominee also has to be a role model who contributes signicantly to the community. Non-instructional staff must have seven consecutive years of experience to be nominated. The individual must also take part in CHS activities and relate well with students and staff. Alumni/ contributor must be at least a 10-year graduate of CHS or a 10-year contributor to the school. The nominee also has to be an active role model in the community. For nominations, list the exact name of nominees and include a brief description of why they should be nominated. The deadline is March 28. Nominations can be made by looking for the Tarpon of the Year link through the CHS website at http://chs. or by U.S. Mail: Charlotte High School, Kate Pyle, Assistant Principal, 1250 Cooper St., Punta Gorda, FL 33950. Local educators won FPL grantsAlicen Rhodes of Deep Creek Elementary School and Melinda Stroup of Sallie Jones Elementary School were recently announced as winners of Florida Power and Light grants. They are two out of 42 educators statewide who won grants for teacher energy projects worth a total of $42,000. “Projects like solarpowered ovens, waterpowered cars and wind generators are being funded to teach Florida’s students about STEM education,” a release stated. The program has funded a variety of science, technology, engineering, math and energy projects since it started in 2010. Grants have ranged from $500 to $1,000 per project. CHS student represents county Pristina Kuo of Charlotte High School represented the county at the 2015 Sunshine State Scholar’s recent convention in Orlando. “Florida selects their top 11th-grade student in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) based on established criteria. These Scholars, along with their parents and teachers, convene to receive recognition for their achievements,” a release stated. “They also have opportunities to meet with representatives from Florida’s colleges and universities, learn about STEM-related programs of study and internships, and experience why Florida is the best place to learn and pursue an exciting career.” — Compiled by Sommer BrokawThat darn mandated testing PHOTO PROVIDED BY TRISTA GROSSNICKLAUSLeft: Alexis Aponte of Port Charlotte Middle School was one of over 300 students of similar age statewide who joined the Florida All-State Middle School Concert Chorus earlier this year.PHOTO BY TIFFINY COFFEYAbove: Port Charlotte High School students recently participated in their annual chalk drawing festival.

Our Town Page 18 C The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS A team of area residents made a 14-minute lm about the Myakka River glorying in its wealth of exotic plants and prolic wildlife. The lmmakers used all the latest high-resolution digital cinema cameras, including high-tech drones, to capture spectacular wildlife sequences. They photographed a bird of prey called the caracara, sandhill cranes, otters, alligators, vultures, lumpkins, white-tailed deer and baby bobcats. The “Expedition Florida: Moods of the Myakka,” has been submitted to the Sarasota Film Festival in hopes of attracting $375,000 to nance a feature-length version of the nature documentary. The tea-colored, 66mile river originates in the Manatee County marshes near Myakka Head, owing south through Charlotte and Sarasota counties to discharge into Charlotte Harbor and on into the Gulf of Mexico. It has been designated one of the state’s “wild and scenic” rivers. “It’s the story of a man growing up, and his relationship to his father and to the Myakka River,” said Jono Miller, an executive producer. Also working on the lm is co-director Jeff Palmer, also director of photography, and former Bradenton Herald photographer Leslie Gaines, co-director and producer. “It’s a simple story, a nice blend of natural wildlife and landscape footage,” said Miller, 63, a retired director of environmental studies at New College of Florida. Film festival ofcials will announce March 25 the selections to be shown April 10-19. “We’re optimistic because it’s a local lm about a local river by local people,” Miller said. If the short is not shown during the lm festival, it will eventually play on PBS, said Gaines. The team worked on the lm about a year, he said, adding he raised $30,000 to shoot it. Average television projects all have budgets between $350,000 and $1 million,” he said. The lm traces the life of Palmer, born and raised in Sarasota, and his maturation amid the river’s restless beauty. “It’s only fed by the landscape around it, so if the landscape changes, the river does, too,” said Palmer. “Our set is always moving, always changing.” Palmer, 55, of Englewood, previously starred in “My Life as a Turkey,” based on the true story of writer and naturalist Joe Hutto, who imprinted wild turkey eggs and raised the hatchlings himself. In 2011, it premiered in the United Kingdom, later aired in the United States on the PBS program “Nature,” winning a national Emmy Award for outstanding nature programming. “We’re trying to keep the whole watershed free of congestive life — we know we can’t stop life as far as people go,” said Palmer. “That’s what conservation groups are trying to do — help ranchers to continue on with what they do, and not be pressured to do something else that would turn it into another subdivision, another Walmart.” In 1985, the Florida Legislature designated 34 miles of the river in Sarasota County a “wild and scenic river,” according to Chris Oliver, state environmental specialist and program biologist.Locals make short film about life along the MyakkaBy SARA KENNEDYBRADENTON HERALD Je Palmer lms sandhill cranes on a ranch near the Myakka River State Park.PHOTOS PROVIDEDCo-director Je Palmer in Upper Myakka Lake is featured in a lm about the Myakka River and is director of photography. adno=50481128 adno=50477844 We design individual rehabilitative care based on our patient’s personal health care needs.

Our Town Page 20 C The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 FROM PAGE ONE Granddaddy of ’em All.” Started by Terry Welles circa 1963, the Shoot Out gang is made up of some 50 members from in and around the community. The players enjoy having fun and entertaining rodeo fans. Some of the gang have been involved with the group since its beginning. Tod Backer is one of the old-timers. He remembered exactly when he fell in love with the Shoot Out four decades ago. “I saw my rst Shoot Out in July of 1972,” Backer said. “And when I saw that, I said, ‘That’s exactly what I want to do when I grow up. I want to play cowboys.” Backer is second to Brown in seniority. He has been a volunteer performer for 33 years. Like Brown and Backer, brothers Travis and David Bass also were smitten with the idea of playing characters in a live Western. “It’s fun,” Travis said. “Who doesn’t want to tote big guns?” The Bass brothers even recruited their wives to take part in the action. David’s wife Cyndi Bass played the saloon madam in charge of “the very attractive yet hardly virtuous Dance Hall Girls.” The Shoot Out show is narrated by Barney, the town judge. “He’s a little old man that looks like Colonel Sanders,” Backer said. Barney tells the story of a wily crew of outlaws, prone to drinking, womanizing and rabble-rousing, set straight by the sheriff and his deputies. It’s a story as old as time, and one that lets the members of the Tater Hill Bluff Gang stay young. “We never grew up,” Brown said. “We’re kids at heart.”Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comRODEOFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY JEN BRUNOAbove: More Tater Hill Blu Gang members during the Shoot Out display, a local rodeo tradition.SUN PHOTO BY JEN BRUNO“Deputy” Chris Brown res, with fellow “lawman” JR Wall backing him up, just behind him to the left, during Friday’s Shoot Out.SUN PHOTO BY BRENDA BARBOSALeft: Jan Shipley, from left, Roy Shipley, Butch Graves and John Smith played an interesting cast of characters in the Shoot Out performance Friday at the rodeo.SUN PHOTO BY JEN BRUNOThe dancing girls entertain during the Shoot Out.SUN PHOTO BY BRENDA BARBOSAKaren Lee takes a break before performing in the Shoot Out at the rodeo Friday in Arcadia. TWO COWBOYS TO KEEP AN EYE ONEarlier this week, Judge Don Hall, president of the Arcadia Rodeo Association, named some of the cowboys to keep an eye on this weekend. Here are two who are competing Sunday: Bronc rider Spencer Wright, 25, was named Saddle Bronc Riding Rookie of the Year in 2012 by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. Wright is a member of the famous Milford, Utah, rodeo family. He was ranked No. 1 in the world in 2014, and will ride “Medicine Woman,” who was twice named Saddle Bronc of the Year. Ranked No. 3 in the world, Richmond Champion will be riding Sunday afternoon on “Dirt Devil.” The 23-year-old California native started in rodeo as a bull rider at age 13, and stayed with that until his junioryear of high school. He made his first bareback ride on July4, 2010, when he was 17. — Source: Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and the Arcadian adno=50482198 adno=50482181 24twentyoneEvent Center For any Occasion 2421 TAMIAMI TRAIL PORT CHARLOTTE, FL 33952 9412494059 NOW BOOKING HOLIDAY PARTIES AUCTIONS SEMINARS MEETINGS PARTIES DANCES CLASSES WEDDINGS SPECIAL EVENTS adno=50482042 941-624-5277 1146 Market Circle Port Charlotte, FL 33953 A F l o r i d a P r e m i e r e Glass & Mirror Specialty Establishment VOTED #1 in Charlotte County READERS’CHOICEAWARD 2010 2012 2011 2009 2004 2008 Lic # AAA006761 2013 All phases of Glass & Mirror Windows Sliding Glass Doors Table Tops Custom Specialty Work Commercial Storefront Glass Etching Beveled & Polished Glass & Mirror Shower & Bath Enclosur es 2014 adno=50374384 Directory Carriers or Call Richard today at 941-206-1310 C O N S I G N M E N T CONSIGNMENT 941-625-4077 21202 Olean Blvd B-4 , Port Charlotte, FL (BEHIND BOB’S LOCK N KEY) CONSIGNMENT adno=50482017 adno=50482326 Tuesday, March 17 2:00PM Route work pays for ourfamily activities.AWNEarn up to S30D per week, part time.Work approximately two to three hours per day (slightlylonger on Sundays) as a home delivery distributor duringthe morning hours of 2:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m.Charlotte SunsAn Fdilion of The Sunea H xFULL SERVICEVACATION PLANNING812 Tamiami TrailPort Charlotte, FL800.721.2469ODEN 7 DAYS A WEEK24 ,DX. 1St. Patrick's Day celebration.

STATE NATIONAL WORLD BUSINESS WEATHER WASHINGTON — Members of Congress who are demanding Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails are largely exempt from such scrutiny themselves. Congress makes its own rules, and has never subjected itself to open records laws that force agencies such as the State Department to maintain records and turn them over to the public when asked. There’s also no requirement for members of Congress to use ofcial email accounts, or to retain, archive or store their emails, while in ofce or after. That’s in contrast to the White House and the rest of the executive branch. Ofcial emails there are supposed to be retained, though the controversy over Clinton’s use of a personal email account while secretary of state has exposed vague and inconsistent requirements from one agency to another. But if the rules at federal agencies are unclear, at least there are rules. On Capitol Hill, there are almost none.

See more about the race in Sports on page 5.The long, cold trek on the IditarodWASHINGTON — Among the many thousands of emails Jeb Bush received as Florida governor are a string of notes from campaign donors asking favors and making suggestions. Invariably, Bush responded quickly. Sometimes, he appointed a person a donor had recommended for a position. Other times, he rejected advice about a piece of legislation. It’s an insight into Bush’s work as governor that’s possible only because his emails are open for review, something not yet available for those sent and received by Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state. Like Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, Bush used a personal email address and private server. But, positioning himself as a transparent candidate if he runs for the Republican nomination, he has posted online more than 275,000 emails from his two terms in ofce. Initially, the emails that drew attention concerned Bush’s correspondence about continuing or removing life support for Terri Schiavo, the federal raid to resolve the Elian Gonzalez custody battle and Florida’s pivotal role in the 2000 presidential election. Yet a review by The Associated Press of Jeb Bush’s emails found that prominent donors to Bush and his family regularly urged him to appoint candidates for judgeships, public boards and other positions.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 STATE NEWS TALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) — A Senate panel on Thursday unanimously approved a bill aimed at protecting Florida seniors from predatory “professional guardians,” described by one lawmaker as “cockroaches.” The bill (SB 1226), led by Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice, would expand the Statewide Public Guardianship Ofce at the Department of Elder Affairs, with an eye to tightening oversight of people who assume control of a senior citizens’ nances. A recent series by the Sarasota Herald-Tribune found that while Florida has an efficient system of identifying and caring for fragile elders, “tapping their assets is a growth business.” In 2003, there were 23 registered professional guardians in Florida. Today, the number has grown to more than 440. “Those little cracks in the law are allowing cockroaches to crawl through and take advantage of people who are elderly,” Detert told the Senate Children, Families and Elder Affairs Committee. “Let’s face it. The elderly are today’s invisible people, who are not given much credence when they complain.” The bill would charge the Department of Elder Affairs with certifying, overseeing and — if necessary — investigating and disciplining professional guardians who abuse their trust. It would also create a registry of professional guardians in each judicial circuit. Currently, Detert said, the Department of Elder Affairs is responsible for public guardians, who are assigned to indigent seniors, but there is little to stop unscrupulous “professional guardians” from charging exorbitant rates for services they provide and running through their wards’ assets. “When you are turning somebody’s entire life over to a guardian, they have access to every asset that you have, and your own family is blocked from participating,” Detert said. Douglas Franks, who spoke in favor of the measure, said his mother, Ernestine, is a case in point. Now 93, Ernestine Franks has lived in Pensacola all her life. She and her late husband, Charles, both worked at the Pensacola Naval Air Station and saved their money. Douglas said he and his two brothers agreed to a guardian for Ernestine in 2011 because they lived out of town and her health was becoming more of a concern. However, he told the committee, the guardianship has cost his mother $1,000 per day since June 2012. “It is over $1 million that my mom has spent,” Franks said. “We’re trying to bring awareness so people know what’s going on and how this is a lucrative cottage industry.” Detert said the courts are so overwhelmed with foreclosures and other backlogged cases that they aren’t able to investigate guardianship expenditures that are unreasonably large. Her proposal comes as several other lawmakers also are offer ing measures aimed at curbing abusive guardianships. On Tuesday, for instance, a bill by Sen. Miguel Diaz de la Portilla, R-Miami, unanimously passed the Senate Judiciary Committee, which Diaz de la Portilla chairs. The measure (SB 318) would require a hearing to be held before the appointment of an emergency temporary guardian. Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, and Rep. Kathleen Passidomo, R-Naples, meanwhile, are sponsoring measures (SB 366/HB 5) that would require the reporting of incidents of abuse, neglect and exploitation of a ward by a guardian.Bill seeks to stop ‘cockroaches’ from preying on seniors | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATEHouse budget plans start to take shape(News Service of Florida) — House leaders Friday released an outline of how they would divvy up about $28.5 billion in general revenue next year as budget proposals start coming together. As another sign of movement on spending plans, the House Education Appropriations Subcommittee and the House Transportation & Economic Development Appropriations Subcommittee will discuss initial budget proposals from their chair men Monday, according to the House calendar. The outline released Friday indicates about $11.2 billion in general revenue would go toward pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade education, while nearly $8.3 billion would go to health care. The justice system part of the budget would receive nearly $4 billion, while higher education would get about $3.9 billion. Smaller amounts of general revenue would go to areas of the budget such as agriculture and natural resources and transpor tation and economic development.

Deputies also seized more than 5 pounds of marijuana and arrested two more people. An undercover surveillance operation led to the arrest of Eddie “Fat Eddie” Saez Thursday just before he was scheduled to host a birthday party at Club Shuggars, 1920 Boy Scout Drive in Fort Myers. Saez was wanted on criminal felony charges for his involvement in a shooting earlier in the year. Deputies say that just before the “birthday bash,” they observed a large drug deal conducted by Saez at his home, 1300 Connie Avenue N. in Lehigh Acres.

The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 WIRE Page 3 STATE NEWS (Tampa Bay Times) — Just as one student can throw a classroom into chaos, Florida schools are learning that just one person with a few dollars can wreak havoc on an entire education system. Florida’s computerized testing program, a bedrock of its accountability system, foundered in recent days on a cyberattack so simple that almost anyone could launch one. “It’s an easy way to disrupt the system, to impress your friends, to get out of work,” said Brian Krebs, a veteran reporter who runs the investigative website Krebs on Security. “Some of these services you can hire to launch attacks up to 8 hours. I think that would cost you about $40.” The Florida Department of Law Enforcement continues to investigate a denial of service attack, or DoS, made upon testing provider American Institutes for Research last week. These attacks essentially swamp a computer server with extra trafc the computers can’t handle. Firewalls attempt to discard the unwelcome advances, but even as they lter them out, “it takes time for relief” from the attack, said Chris Jackson, a technology specialist for Pasco County schools. In the past couple of years, DoS attacks have increased in frequency and intensity on all sorts of institutions, including banks as well as schools. One denial of service caused Kansas to dump test scores last year. Some schools in Illinois and New Jersey delayed testing because of similar attacks earlier this academic year. A huge reason is the proliferation of DoS-forhire sites, nicknamed “booter services.” Many promote themselves as a way to assess your own system’s load capacity.School testing cyberattacks easy to launch adno=50467738 S UN C OAST H OME G ARDEN Advertisement Advertisement rigid criteria and close scrutiny for the quality of their products, knowledge and service.

(AP) — An ex-con who had just finished a 15-year robbery sentence has admitted he robbed the same New Jersey shoe store — as the same clerk was behind the counter. Prosecutors say 41-year-old Christopher Miller robbed the Stride Rite store in Toms River in March 2014, a day after he was released from prison after finishing his jail term for the first robbery. Police say Miller made off with $389 and fled on foot with the employees’ cellphones. The clerk had been notified about Miller’s release and identified the suspect as the same person who had robbed the store in 1999. Miller pleaded guilty to second-degree robbery on Monday. He faces a prison term of 10 to 20 years in prison when he’s sentenced in May.ODD NEWS Ex-con admits robbing same shoe store 15 years later to return, but she stuck to her decision,” he added. Most marriages in India, particularly in its rural areas, are arranged by the families. The bride and groom get married without getting to know each other well. The bride’s father told the Times of India that the groom’s family had misled them about his education. “Any Class I student must be able to solve the simple problem asked by us,” Mohar Singh, the father of the girl told the Times of India daily. “It was a very embar rassing situation for all of us as we had come with all preparations and it was a matter of social prestige as well. We have been cheated,” Singh said. Kumar said local police were called by the groom’s family to inter vene and both families returned the jewelry and gifts they had exchanged before the wedding.DITCHESFROM PAGE 1 into the city center, still in the hands of IS militants. Iraqi military ofcials have said they expect to reach central Tikrit in two to three days. The Iranian-backed Shiite militias have played a crucial role in regaining territory from the Sunni extremists of the Islamic State group, supporting Iraq’s embattled military and police forces. An Iraqi government ofcial told The Associated Press that Iran has sold Baghdad nearly $10 billion in arms and hardware, mostly weapons for urban warfare like assault ries, heavy machine-guns and rocket launchers. The ofcial spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media. In November, President Barack Obama authorized the deployment of up to 1,500 more U.S. troops to bolster Iraqi forces, which could more than double the total of American forces in Iraq to 3,100. The Pentagon has made a spending request to Congress of $1.6 billion, focusing on training and arming Kurdish and Iraqi forces. According to a Pentagon document prepared in November, the U.S. is looking to provide an estimated $89.3 million in weapons and equipment to each of the nine Iraqi brigades. The U.S.-led coalition of eight countries has launched more than 2,000 airstrikes in Iraq alone since August 2014, and the U.S. is also hitting the militant group from the air in Syria. Iraqi and U.S. ofcials have acknowledged the role airstrikes have played in rolling back the militants, saying the air campaign was an essential component in victories at the Mosul Dam, in Amirli, and more recently, in the crucial oil rening town of Beiji. But the U.S. is not taking part in the operation in Tikrit, with U.S. ofcials saying they were not asked by Iraq to participate. Al-Amiri, the Shiite militia commander who also is head of the Badr Organization political party, said that “help from Iran is unconditional.” He warned that Iraq should not sacrice its sovereignty for the sake of receiving weapons and assistance from the U.S., suggesting the Iraqi government is taking instructions from Washington. “Our sovereignty is more important than U.S. weapons,” he said. “We can bring weapons from any country in the world.” Separately, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, Iraq’s top Shiite cleric, urged the government to step up its support for the Shiite militias and to take care of the families of militiamen killed in battle. His remarks were relayed by his spokesman Ahmed al-Sa in the Shiite holy city of Karbala. As many as 30,000 men are ghting the extremists in Tikrit — most of them volunteers with various Shiite militias, Iraqi ofcials say. U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey said Wednesday that up to 20,000 militiamen may be involved. Karim al-Nouri, a spokesman for the Popular Mobilization Forces, the ofcial name of the Shiite militias, said as many as 40 Iranian advisers are also taking part. In its march across Syria and northern and western Iraq, the Islamic State group — also known as ISIS or ISIL — has seized cities, towns and vast tracts of land. Its predominantly Sunni ghters view Shiites as apostates and have carried out a number of massacres.IRAQFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOMembers of an Iraqi Shiite militant group called Soldiers of Imam Ali Brigades prepare to launch rockets against Islamic State extremists’ positions in the Qadisiyya neighborhood in Tikrit, 80 miles north of Baghdad, Iraq, Friday. appropriate channels.” Did fundraisers carry special inuence? “No. Absolutely not,” Campbell said. She did not respond to AP’s questions about specic emails involving two fundraisers, but one of them, Mark Guzzetta, said Bush denied his requests just as frequently as he granted them. “We always joked it would be better to be a stranger with no connection,” Guzzetta said. “He was so deliberate because he wanted to make sure we received no special favors.” Bush freely gave out his personal email address during his time in ofce and often received notes of inquiry, complaint and thanks. Last month, Bush put the emails he said were related to his work in state government on a website, a move he and his aides said was designed to show his administration was open and in touch with constituents. Bush was required by Florida’s notably strong public records law to provide the state with all correspondence related to state government after he left ofce, and those emails were publicly available before Bush created his website. Like Clinton, Bush decided which messages were considered per sonal and not subject to disclosure. In 2007, he said he had received and sent about 550,000 emails via his personal address, meaning a significant number remain private. Among those to email him was a longtime Bush family supporter, William “Bill” Becker, a Florida citrus grower. He was among the circle of loyalists invited to huddle with Bush in December to hear about his presidential ambitions. Nine years ago, Becker wrote as the citrus industry dealt with advertising budget shortfalls triggered by Hurricane Wilma. “It seems whenever I am in touch with you it is for a favor and I hate to have to do so again,” he wrote, asking the governor to support a funding supplement. “A good word from you to the leadership would very likely salvage the matter and be of huge help to the industry,” Becker wrote that day, April 29, 2006. Bush wrote back the same day. “We made the pitch to the speaker, president and appropriations chairs. We shall see.” Earlier that month, Becker wrote Bush asking the governor to call about a citrus industry initiative. “Calling right now,” Bush replied that day, April 3, 2006. Becker, who did not respond to three interview requests from AP, chaired the “Ag for Bush Coalition” in 2004, supporting the presidential re-election campaign of Bush’s brother, George W. Bush. Two years earlier, Jeb Bush ew aboard Becker’s Cessna while campaigning for governor. Becker is a steady supporter of the Foundation for Excellence in Education, a nonprot founded by Bush in 2008, giving between $25,001 and $50,000 each year from 2012-14.BUSHFROM PAGE 1 attacks are not required to retain emails of their own for future inspection by anyone. “Members of Congress can burn everything when they’re nished if they want,” said John Wonderlich, policy director at the Sunlight Foundation, which advocates for government transparency. “They have discretion.” That might appear to be a double standard, but members of Congress mostly don’t see it that way. And, perhaps surprisingly, open government advocates are largely unconcerned. They agree it makes sense for Congress to be treated differently from the executive branch, although there are certain private proceedings they would like to see made public, such as some reports generated by the Congressional Research Service. For the most part, lawmakers say, Congress already operates in a much more open fashion than the other branches of the federal government. Most congressional proceedings are conducted in open session, sometimes widely broadcast, and lawmakers are accountable to the voters at election time. Some argue that requiring members of Congress to make their correspondence public could chill their ability to communicate freely with constituents who might not want their views or requests widely exposed. “I don’t want to sound like we’re separating our selves from other groups, but there is a reason that you protect constituent correspondence, so it’s a little different kettle of sh,” said Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. A provision in the Constitution known as the “speech or debate” clause provides members of Congress with immunity for their legislative acts and has been generally interpreted to give them broad control over their records, although it’s been challenged in court during recent cor ruption investigations. Additionally, because executive branch agencies are bound by the Freedom of Information Act, correspondence between a lawmaker and, say, the Interior Department can be accessed by the public. The exemptions Congress grants itself aren’t just about records. Lawmakers have spared themselves from many other laws that cover the rest of society, including those governing workplace health and safety, civil rights and discrimination. When Republicans took control of Congress in 1994 they sought to eliminate the perception that lawmakers played by different rules. They announced, as Item 1 in their “Contract with America,” plans to require that all laws that apply to the rest of the country apply to Congress, too. The concept was enshrined in the Congressional Accountability Act of 1995. But issues like open records weren’t covered.EMAILFROM PAGE 1 NEW YORK (AP) — The price of oil is tumbling again, rattling an alreadyshaken oil industry and heralding lower prices for consumers. The price of oil fell 10 percent this week, approaching its lowest price in six years. Many expect it to fall further in the coming weeks because supplies are rising and the summer driving season is still months away. The lower crude prices will mean gasoline prices will slide lower in the coming weeks, and many drivers will likely pay under $2 a gallon in the summertime for the rst time since 2004. Oil prices had appeared to stabilize in a range nearly 15 percent higher than the depths they had reached in late January. But on Friday the International Energy Agency called a recent rise in oil prices a “head fake” and a “facade of stability.” “The rebalancing (of supply and demand) triggered by the price collapse has yet to run its course,” the agency wrote in its monthly oil market report. On Friday, oil fell $2.21, or 5 percent, to $44.84 a barrel, within 40 cents of its low for the year of $44.45. Here’s what’s behind the recent drop, and what else to look out for in the coming months. Oil has collapsed from over $100 because rising global supplies — especially in the U.S. — outpaced weak demand. The increase in U.S. production last year was the third-biggest one-year increase in the history of the global oil industry, according to BP. That has pushed oil levels in storage to their highest ever in the U.S. and far higher than nor mal around the world. Analysts expect supplies to continue to build, forcing prices gradually lower, until reners ramp up to make gasoline for the summer driving season. But analysts say price of oil could fall sharply — to under $40 a barrel and perhaps even briey to $20 — if supplies grow so much that storage tanks ll up. Gasoline prices rise nearly every year around this time. This year has been no different. After reaching a low of $2.03 a gallon in late January, the national average retail price rose every day for more than a month, reaching $2.46 on March 7, according to AAA. But the spring surge is likely over, according to Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service. The national average has slipped lower every day for the past week, falling to $2.44 on Friday, and Kloza expects it to fall the rest of March and April. The national average won’t fall all the way to its January low, Kloza said, in part because reners must still switch to more expensive summer blends of gasoline to meet clean air standards. Oil is on its way down again; will gas prices follow?

The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 WIRE Page 5 NATIONAL NEWS | NATION BRIEFSGoing full circle for math and pastries on a special Pi DayWASHINGTON (AP) — Saturday is the day when love of math and a hankering for pastry come full circle. Saturday is Pi Day, a once-in-a-year calendar date that this time squares the fun with a once-in-a-century twist. Saturday is 3-14-15, the rst ve digits of the mathematical constant pi: 3.141592653. The best times to celebrate are at 9:26 and 53 seconds, morning and evening. The next time that happens is in March 2115. “It’s a portal into this magical mysterious world of mathematics,” said University of California Berkeley mathematician and author Edward Frenkel. “Pi is special.” Pi is the constant used to calculate the area of a circle, as in pi times the radius squared, but it appears all over other parts of mathematics. College leaders worry about their schools(Bloomberg) — Facing shrinking budgets and, in some cases, agging enrollment, a growing number of college presidents are concerned about the future of their institutions, a new Inside Higher Ed report based on Gallup data nds. Only 39 percent of college presidents surveyed for the report felt condent their institution’s nancial model would be sustainable for the next decade, down from 50 percent the previous year. They were more positive about shorter-term survival: 56 predicted they’d be OK for ve years. That’s still well below the 62 percent who felt that way in 2014. To gauge the ofcials’ sentiment, Gallup polled presidents of 338 public institutions and 262 private nonprots in the U.S. in January and February.Coroner: 19-year-old killed by officer shot in head, torsoMADISON, Wis. (AP) — A 19-year-old biracial man who was unarmed when killed by a white Madison police ofcer was shot in his head, right arm and torso, according to preliminary autopsy reports released Friday. The reports from the Dane County Medical Examiner don’t say how many times Tony Robinson was shot on March 6, or whether he was shot while facing or turned away from the ofcer, but they determined he died from “rearm related trauma.” The medical examiner didn’t say when a nal report would be released, but said the results of toxicology tests aren’t expected for several more weeks. Robinson was fatally shot by police ofcer Matt Kenny after the ofcer was summoned to a call that the young man was jumping in and out of trafc and had assaulted someone. Authorities said the ofcer heard a distur bance and forced his way into an apartment where Robinson had gone, and red after Robinson assaulted him. ROBINSONHamlet in central NY is snowiest spot in USCOPENHAGEN, N.Y. (LA Times) — Copenhagen, Denmark, has nothing on Copenhagen, N.Y., where a ier in the post ofce trumpets upcoming snowmobile drag races and the sound of an occasional “splat!” signals the plummet of an icy chunk from a weary roof onto Main Street. Unlike its European counterpart, which has seen a relatively snowfree winter, the hamlet in central New York has earned the dubious honor of being the snowiest spot in the United States this winter, with upward of 20 feet of snow since Nov. 15. That makes tiny Copenhagen, population about 800, snowier than Boston, whose suburbs have measured at least 88 inches since mid-November; snowier than Steamboat Springs, Colo., which lays claim to 135.8 inches; and far snowier than California’s snowiest spot, Soda Springs, high in the Sierra near the infamous Donner Pass.

The Journal News says Lora has been charged with felony criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and two misdemeanors.Police fatally shoot man found in subway tunnel WASHINGTON (AP) — A transit police ofcer fatally shot a man ofcials said was found trespassing in a Washington subway tunnel, and police were investigating Friday but did not specify what kind of threat the man posed. The Metrorail Operations Control Center reported an “unauthorized person” on the tracks Thursday night outside of the Potomac Avenue station, about two stops from the U.S. Capitol, just before 9 p.m. A train operator rst saw the man in the tunnel, and that track was taken out of service, Metro ofcials said.Police: Driver sets herself on fire, jumps off bridgeEUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A 39-year-old female driver apparently set herself on re, crashed her car on a bridge and jumped 40 feet to a park below, Eugene police said Thursday. The Eugene woman was being treated for critical injuries at a Portland-area hospital. The woman’s family had recently reported her missing, police spokesman John Hankemeier said. A 911 caller reported Thursday afternoon that a car appeared to be on re from the inside, with the woman at the wheel driving recklessly, The Register-Guard newspaper reported. After the car crashed into a bridge guardrail, witnesses told police the woman jumped out — on re — and began taking her clothes off as she ran to the edge of the span. Truck drivers tried to put out the ames with re extinguishers and another person tried to grab the woman, but she was still able to jump, police said. CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (AP) — Just four days before he was killed in a helicopter crash, Staff Sgt. Andrew Seif was awarded one of the military’s highest honors for heroism, a commendation he earned for his efforts to save a mortally wounded friend in heavy gunre in Afghanistan. Seif, 26, was given the Silver Star in a room full of his fellow Marines, walking arm in arm with his wife after the ceremony. The boy who grew up playing soldier in his Michigan backyard was hailed by one of his superiors, Maj. Gen. Joseph L. Osterman, as a seless person who put himself in the line of re so that Sgt. Justin Hansen wouldn’t be left behind. He and Hansen came under heavy re as they closed in on a bomb expert in Afghanistan. His comrade was wounded; Seif moved him to safety, treated his wounds and red back. At the ceremony, he deected praise. “There are denitely some individuals out there who deserve (the medal) just as well,” Seif said. “But it’s an honor to accept it on the behalf of the unit and on behalf of the rest of the men.” The young Marine’s story emerged Friday when the Marines killed in the crash were publicly identied, some three days after the crash. The deceased had been students and husbands, ofcers and sons. Four National Guard soldiers from Louisiana also were killed, though they have not been identied. The Air Force said in a news release that a salvage barge was expected to arrive at the crash site by early Friday afternoon. The work to haul the shattered helicopter core from about 25 feet of water could take up to eight hours. During a Friday news conference at Camp LeJeune, Osterman — who is commander of Marine Corps special operations forces — said the Marines were flying offshore to practice rappelling down ropes into the water and then making for land. He didn’t know whether the Marines were planning to reach shore by swimming or in small rubber boats, but the same drill had been practiced hours earlier during daylight, Osterman said. “They literally had done it hours before in daylight as part of the rehearsal for being able to do the nighttime operations, which inherently are more difcult,” Osterman said. The teams of Marines and Army-piloted choppers made a judgment call on whether conditions were sufcient for the training mission to go ahead. Then when they were heading out to start the mission, they tried to abort after deciding it was too risky, Osterman said. Training is part of being ready for high-risk operations. The seven Marines were members of the same team who constantly trained and faced danger together, he said. Marine Special Operations Command, or MARSOC, has seen its members honored for valor and suffering with 19 Silver Star medals, 7 Navy Crosses, 189 Purple Hearts and 207 Bronze Stars, Osterman said. “They really epitomized the silent warrior and the quiet professional that is really a hallmark of all the Marines here at MARSOC,” Osterman said of the 2,500 MARSOC troops. He declined to cite specic instances of heroism or the missions accomplished by other Marines who were on the doomed chopper. Like other clandestine services, a private ceremony remembering the special operations Marines will be held in the coming weeks to help surviving family members close the page on their deaths. Jenna Kemp’s husband, Kerry Kemp, was among the Marines killed. He was a “proud Marine, a loving husband and most wonderful father,” with a child about to turn 1, said her sister, Lora Waraksa of Port Washington, Wis. Another victim was Marcus Bawol, 27, from Warren, Michigan, north of Detroit. His sister, Brandy Peek, said military ofcials told them his remains had been identied. Bawol “loved everything about the military,” Peek said. The other Marine victims were: Capt. Stanford H. Shaw III, 31, from Basking Ridge, N.J.; Master Sgt. Thomas A. Saunders, 33, from Williamsburg, Va.; Staff Sgt. Trevor P. Blaylock, 29, from Lake Orion, Mich. and Staff Sgt. Liam A. Flynn, 33, from Queens, N.Y..Fallen Marine awarded Silver Star days before deadly crash AP PHOTOA small memorial stands in the sand along Highway 98 in Navarre, Fla., Thursday. (Chicago Tribune) — An Orland Park, Ill., man is enjoying more than a year’s supply of free hot sauce, which he credits with triggering a seizure that may have helped save his life. Randy Schmitz, 30, said that after sampling Flashbang hot sauce on a toothpick last August at the Pepper Place in Myrtle Beach, S.C., while on vacation, he fell to the ground in convulsions, prompting emergency medical treatment — and, ultimately, an MRI scan of his brain that detected a cancerous tumor in its early stages. “If I didn’t try that, I think something eventually would have triggered the seizure and I would’ve found out, but that cancer tumor would’ve grown in my head,” said Schmitz, a special education job coach. Instead, Schmitz ew home early from the family vacation and, days later, underwent brain surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where doctors removed a 2 inch-by-1 -inch malignant tumor on his left frontal lobe, according to Jeffrey Raizer, medical director of neuro-oncology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Raizer noted that while no one can prove that the hot sauce was the exact trigger for the seizure, variables related to Schmitz’s hot sauce tasting do match conditions that are known for leading to seizures, including dehydration and stress. “If you have a lot of hot sauce and you’re sweating a lot, people can have dehydration and it can cause seizures,” Raizer said. “If you eat a habanero pepper, it’s a big jolt to your system.” Flashbang contains Carolina reaper, scorpion and habanero peppers, according to the company website. Customers must sign a waiver before trying it. Raizer said Schmitz’s seizure allowed doctors to treat the cancer with surgery, radiation and chemotherapy before it became worse for Schmitz, who got married weeks after his diagnosis. “It’s better that he had a seizure in that we knew (the cancer) was there and then we could kind of deal with it,” Razier said. Schmitz, who has completed all his radiation treatments and has one more month of chemotherapy treatment, was so grateful for the way events played out that he wrote to the Pepper Palace in January to thank the business for its involvement in his medical emergency. “Your Flashbang Pepper Sauce SAVED MY LIFE!!!!” he typed in an email, which store management has since posted on its website along with its response: “Way to go, Randy, you are truly a Wall of Flame Survivor!” The company sent Schmitz a box lled with hot sauce, Pepper Palace T-shirts, golf balls and other souvenirs from the store.Man credits hot sauce with saving his life FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Protesters called for calm but vowed to keep pushing for change in Ferguson a day after the shooting of two ofcers in front of the city’s police department heightened tensions in the St. Louis suburb. Dozens gathered for a candlelight vigil Thursday night, where they expressed sympathy for the wounded ofcers. They also prayed for peace as Ferguson moves forward in the wake of a scathing Justice Department report on racial bias in its law-enforcement practices. A larger crowd of about 200 protesters gathered later outside the police department, but the scene was a marked contrast to the previous night, when ghts broke out before the shootings. Some called for specific changes: the resignation of Ferguson’s mayor or the disbanding of the police department. Others were there to remember 18-year-old Michael Brown, whose shooting death by a Ferguson police officer in August made the city a national focal point. “We’ll not be derailed in the pursuit of justice by anybody or anything that wants to get in our way,” said the Rev. Traci Blackmon, a member of the state’s Ferguson Commission who led the prayer vigil at a public plaza in downtown Ferguson near the police department. “We refuse to stop.” Ofcers from the St. Louis County Police Department and the Missouri Highway Patrol were summoned to bolster security but largely stood idle in the distance. The protesters had largely disbanded by 11:30 p.m. No arrests were made. The shootings just after midnight on Thursday came as protesters had gathered after the resignation of the city’s embattled police chief. They marked the rst time in more than seven 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 demonstrators. Both wounded ofcers were released from the hospital Thursday, but St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar — who called the attack an ambush — said they could have been killed. One was shot in the right shoulder, the bullet exiting through his back. The other in the right cheek, just below the eye. The bullet lodged behind his ear. Several people were taken in for questioning but were later released, and no arrests were made by late Thursday. The shots were believed to come from a handgun across the street from the police department. The gunman may have red from up to 120 yards away, a distance longer than a football eld. But with a line of roughly 20 ofcers standing in front of the building, the shooter did not have to be particularly accurate to hit two of them, Belmar said. In Washington, President Barack Obama took to Twitter to relay his prayers to the ofcers and to denounce violence against police. “Path to justice is one all of us must travel together,” Obama wrote, signing the tweet with his initials.Calm prevails in Ferguson after shootings --.;,Iw'M

I inherited 400 shares of Abbott Labs when my dad passed in 2002. Dan, my broker and friend, wants me to buy 200 shares of Hospira Inc. He says that Hospira will begin to pay a dividend of $1.50 a share this year and that the dividend could rise to $3 by 2018. And if the dividend rises to $3, that would be a 3.75 percent yield. Then, with the remaining $10,000, he wants me to buy the PowerShares QQQ Trust exchange-traded fund for additional conser vative growth. Dear WS: Abbott Labs (ABT-$46) has been very good to you, or perhaps I should say your daddy was very good to you. You may not know this because Broker Dan didn’t tell you, but in 2004, you owned 40 shares of Hospira (HSP$87), and it traded between $24 and $35. Just before the silly 2004 Summer Olympics cost Greece a ridiculous $15 billion, Abbott gave you one share of HSP for every 10 shares of ABT stock you owned. Then, in late 2012, ABT gave you another present, one share of AbbVie (ABBV-$55) for each ABT share you owned. HSP is an uninspiring $4.3 billion specialty drug company marketing an impressive range of injectable pharmaceutical and medication systems that deliver drugs intravenously. HSP is a ne company with excellent products, but I don’t consider it an attractive investment at $87 a share. Management continues to have manufacturing issues at its Rocky Mountain facilities, and ramping up production at its massive new Vizag, India, facility (injectable drugs) is taking a lot longer than management expected. I think Broker Dan ought to be returned to broker school. My low-level contact with HSP at its Illinois headquarters tells me that the board is not considering a dividend in the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, don’t sell your shares of ABBV, which recently increased its dividend again, to $1.96, and yields 3.3 percent. Its exciting $55 billion cash and stock deal to take over Ireland’s Shire PLC (SHPG$238) may reduce ABBV’s corporate tax rate to 13 percent, add $6 billion to revenues, add $2 billion to net income and expose ABBV’s products to new markets. ABBV, a $19 billion-revenue company, is a buy, not a sell. And your Abbott Labs is also an outstanding pharmaceutical. Abbott Labs is a solid core holding that should consistently grow its sales, earnings and dividends. If you’re going to own an index ETF for conservative growth, I recommend the S&P 500 ETF (SPY-$205), not the PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQ-$106), which tracks the Nasdaq 100 index.

Utilities, companies that make basic materials like steel, and major exporters had the biggest declines. The sell-off came at the end of a volatile week and sets the stage for a Federal Reserve policy meeting next week. Investors will be watching closely for clues about the central bank’s views on the economy and interest rates. “This week has really been about investors’ outlooks adjusting in the face of higher interest rates later this year,” said Gabriela Santos, a global market strategist at JPMorgan Funds. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 145.91 points, or 0.8 percent, to 17,749.31. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index lost 12.55 points, or 0.6 percent, to 2,053.40 and the Nasdaq composite lost 21.53 points, or 0.4 percent, to 4,871.76. Oil dropped sharply after the International Energy Agency said prices had further to fall because supplies were continuing to rise. Benchmark U.S. crude fell $2.21 to close at $44.84 a barrel in New York. Oil is now within 40 cents of its low for the year, and its lowest level in six years, after a drop of 10 percent this week. Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils used by many U.S. reneries, fell $2.41 to close at $54.67 a barrel in London. Several energy stocks followed the price of oil lower. Transocean, an offshore oil rig company, fell 67 cents, or 4.7 percent, to $13.60 and Denbury Resources fell 29 cents, or 3.8 percent, to $7.31. The U.S. dollar continued its advance against other major currencies. The euro declined 1.3 percent to $1.0486. The U.S. dollar index, which measures the dollar against a group of other currencies, increased 0.8 percent Friday and is up 6.4 percent over the past month.Stocks decline for third week r,N.VEL -Eler goo i ..................................

The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 WIRE Page 9 WORLD NEWS JOHANNESBURG (AP) — It sounds chilling: two of the world’s most powerful extremist movements, one in the Middle East and the other in Africa, team up to spread their harsh brand of Islamic rule. The quick acceptance by the so-called Islamic State of Boko Haram’s pledge of fealty is a publicity boost, and comes at a time when both are suffering combat losses. Boko Haram militants in Nigeria and the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, 2,000 miles away, might declare joint operations, possibly using an IS afliate in chaotic Libya as a bridge to move arms and ghters. But whether they can effectively do that is very much in question. What is certain is that recent developments, including the newly declared alliance, have deepened the internationalization of the almost 6-year-old Nigerian conict. Multinational efforts to crush the West African militants echo the disparate array of forces, including U.S. air power and Iran-backed Shiite militias, which are ghting the Islamic State group. Already, forces from Chad, Cameroon and Niger are waging an offensive against Boko Haram. On top of that, Nigeria acknowledged late Thursday that it is getting help from regional security oper atives amid reports that South African and other foreign contractors are in the ght against Boko Haram. One South African security contractor was killed during operations earlier this week in the Maiduguri area in northeast Nigeria, where Boko Haram is active, according to South African media. Nigeria has not commented directly on the role of any South African contractors, some of whom are believed to be veterans of the apartheid-era security forces. A number of those veterans worked for the now-defunct Executive Outcomes, a private military outt from South Africa that played a role in conicts in Sierra Leone, Angola and other African countries in the 1990s. France said it will slightly increase its troop numbers by the end of the year in the Sahel, which includes the Lake Chad region where most of the ghting between Boko Haram and soldiers from Nigeria and neighboring countries is taking place. “We do not intend to take part in the ghting,” French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said this week. France cur rently has 3,000 troops involved in Operation Barkhane, a campaign against Islamic extremists in the region. The Islamic State group was quick to accept Boko Haram’s allegiance on Thursday, in contrast to slower deliberation on the pledges of other militants, some of whom abandoned al-Qaida afliates to do so. Boko Haram’s pledge stirred fresh debate about whether Islamic State is extending its global reach. Nigerian extremists have been weakened recently by the multinational force and the Islamic State group is also under pressure from Iraqi troops and allied Shiite militias that have swept into the Iraqi city of Tikrit. One analyst downplayed the idea of “any kind of organizational linkage” between Boko Haram and the Islamic State group. “These movements are trying to outdo one another in terms of radicalization and scare tactics,” said Jakkie Cilliers, executive director of the Institute for Security Studies, based in Pretoria, South Africa. J. Peter Pham, director of the Africa Center at the Atlantic Council, a research center in Washington, said increasing Western assistance to the multinational African military effort against Boko Haram and the role of South African and other contractors “make this ght all that more appealing to the Islamist extremists.” “Militants nding it increasingly harder to get to Syria and Iraq may choose instead to go to northeastern Nigeria and internationalize that conict,” Pham wrote in an email to The Associated Press. Many militants have traveled to Syria through Turkey, which has pledged tighter border controls under international pressure. On Friday, it said authorities had detained 16 Indonesians who were trying to cross the border to join the Islamic State group.Boko Haram-ISIS pact: PR strategy?

U.S. ofcials familiar with the operation conrmed that a drone strike was launched Thursday in Somalia aimed at a key leader of the al-Qaidalinked group, but they said authorities were still trying to verify whether the suspect had been killed.Small Pacific nation of Vanuatu hit by cycloneWELLNGTON, New Zealand (AP) — An extremely powerful cyclone blew over islands in the Pacic’s Vanuatu archipelago late Friday after a westward change of course put populated areas directly in the path of its destructive 168 mile-per-hour winds, according to relief workers. The U.N. Ofce for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said in a release there were unconrmed reports of deaths in Vanuatu’s northeastern islands.German high court overturns headscarf ban for teachersBERLIN (AP) — Germany’s highest court has struck down a state’s ban on teachers wearing headscarves as unconstitutional, saying that it violates guaranteed religious freedoms. The Federal Constitutional Court ruled Friday in favor of two female Muslim teachers from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia in a decision that will also apply to other states. The state’s law banned headscarves on grounds they could call into question a teacher’s neutrality and cause classroom disruptions. But the court ruled a school would need to show “not only an abstract but a sufciently specic risk” to justify a ban.6 ships arrive in Black Sea for NATO exercisesBUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — Six ships have arrived in the Romanian Black Sea port of Constanta to take part in NATO sea exercises this weekend. The three-day training called SNMG-2 will be led by Rear Admiral Brad Williamson of the U.S. Navy, NATO said in a statement Friday. Participating ships include USS Vicksburg, as well as a German auxiliary ship and frigates from Canada, Turkey, Italy and Romania. The exercises are part of a regularly scheduled deployment to the region to assure allies of NATO’s commitment to collective defense.Queen marks end of UK’s 13 years in AfghanistanLONDON (AP) — Queen Elizabeth II joined veterans Friday in a solemn service to commemorate the end of Britain’s combat operations in Afghanistan.

They couldn’t even remember their names. They just stared past Christopher Fomunyoh when he tried to engage them. It was a rare glimpse at the human toll left by the extremists who have been fighting to create an Islamic state in Nigeria and surrounding areas. Fomunyoh, regional director at the Washington-based National Democratic Institute, visited the children recently at an orphanage in the city of Maroua in northern Cameroon. They had been rescued by the country’s military in November from a squalid Boko Haram encampment near the border with Nigeria. This is what he saw: One hundred children, ages 5 to 17, without shoes in an orphanage built for 20. Hard benches for sleeping. A shortage of rice. Boys who appeared to be speaking broken Arabic, rather than one of the many languages native to Cameroon. “There was a blankness in their eyes,” he said. Boko Haram is now under siege by Nigerian and other African troops. If the insur gents are pushed back, hundreds more children like these could soon be found. But what condition will they be in? Fomunyoh and others working with the newly rescued children were left to unravel the mystery of what happened to them. Were they fighters or merely students? How long had they been captive? How had they forgotten their names? Where were their parents? No one knew. Last week, the small number of employees at the Institution Camerounaise de L’enfance was focusing on teaching them how to count to 10 in French. “Right now, there’s not full comprehension of the damage of this crisis,” said Fomunyoh, who is now trying to provide assistance to the children. “Even if kinetic operations were to end soon and Boko Haram was taken off the battlefield, it would take years to really address consequences in humanitarian terms.” In April 2014, Boko Haram grabbed the world’s attention when fighters abducted 200 schoolgirls in northern Nigeria. But it wasn’t the first time the group conducted a mass kidnapping. The rate and scale of the group’s abductions have increased steadily since 2013, according to a report from the U.S.-based Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict. Many of the victims have been raped, and only a few have escaped, activists say. The group “forcibly converts the Christian women and girls they capture to Islam and often coerces them and other female abductees into marriage,” said Watchlist’s 2014 report. According to Human Rights Watch, Boko Haram has allegedly recruited boys as young as 12 years old to fight for the group. Still, Fomunyoh wasn’t prepared for what he saw. And he worried about what would come next for the children. “Without substantive work to reeducate them and help them survive in a normal society, these are potential troublemakers,” he said.Children rescued from Boko Haram are so traumatized that they forgot their names | WORLDFalconer catches owl that terrorized Dutch townPURMEREND, Netherlands (AP) — A falconer has captured an aggressive eagle owl that terrorized a Dutch town by swooping out of the sky and sinking its talons into residents’ heads. The bird earned the nickname “terror owl” in Purmerend, 12 miles north of Amsterdam where it attacked some 50 people in the last year. Some of the bird’s victims required hospital treatment to stitch up deep scratches. Residents took to walking the streets with umbrellas or wearing hats to ward off aerial attacks. Purmerend municipality announced that a falconer it hired caught the bird Friday.Surgeons announce world’s first successful penis transplant(Washington Post) — In a nine-hour surgery, a South African medical team successfully transplanted the penis of a dead donor to a young man without one. Three months later, they say, the recipient, who lost his penis because of complications from a ritual circumcision, has a totally functional sexual organ. That makes him the rst successful recipient of a donated penis. Project began in 2010/11 but researchers struggled to get a donor; only once they fashioned a penis for the donor did they get approvals. To get the approval of the donor’s family, doctors had to fashion a pseudo-penis for him out of abdominal skin. That way he could be buried with something resembling a penis. It’s no small thing to reattach any organ, and sexual organs have added psychological implications. If the function (both urinary and sexual) and appearance aren’t just right, the recipient has to deal with the implications of having a troublesome foreign object where his penis should be. Even if everything is working physically, the psychological trauma can sometimes be too much to bear. But the unnamed 21-year-old in Cape Town, who lost his penis three years ago, is delighted, according to his surgical team. adno=50471075 SUN Charlotte Suniri tai :I t ,-4,i mew 'Nm .... . ...... ....,..,....,..,,...,.,..,..,.,,. o.,../C---\Don't forget to take us with you!

Four of the ve — Anthony Tripke at 113 pounds, John Cruz at 145, Dacoda Flenard at 160 and Roman Morales at 182 — all made it through to the championship seminals today. Even 195-pounder David Towers is still alive after scoring a pin in his second round of wrestlebacks. The Bobcats are holding steady in sixth place with 40 points head into the second day of wrestling. South Dade led Class 3A with 78 points, well ahead of second-place Southwest Miami. “We’ve placed four at states before, but we’ve never had all ve get through that rst round,” Bobcats coach Mark Kemble said. “This is a great group of kids that are very motivated to place in this state tournament.” Kemble was particularly proud of the efforts from Tripke and Morales.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Like two previous victories over Florida this season earned with stronger nishes, topranked Kentucky took heart in having more energy after halftime than the pesky Gators. Now the Wildcats can focus on a stronger start to their next Southeastern Conference tournament game. Aaron Harrison and KarlAnthony Towns each scored 13 points and Kentucky shut down Florida in the second half to pull away for a 64-49 victory in Friday’s SEC tournament quarternal. This game followed the same hard-fought pattern as the two previous matchups, with the Gators initially taking charge before Kentucky seized control in the second half with its size and depth. “The reality of it is, we didn’t play with as much energy as Florida played with to start the game,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said. “I told them at halftime, if that’s what we have in store, like that’s how we’re going to do this, we’re going to have some problems. “I thought in the later part of the game, we found that combination of Andrew (Harrison), Aaron, Tyler (Ulis), Trey (Lyles) or Dakari (Johnson). And see, that’s the advantage we have.” Those advantages helped Kentucky (32-0) outrebound Florida 39-33, including a 16-11 edge offensively that created extra chances and earned frequent trips to the free-throw line. Towns also had 12 boards. Kentucky hit 19 of 23 from the line, while Florida (16-17) was 3 of 5. “They outrebounded us a little bit, but the difference in the game was the free-throw line,” Florida coach Billy Donovan said. “Twenty-three attempts to our ve was a huge factor in the game. ... If you take away the free-throw line, it’s pretty consistent all the way through.” Willie Cauley-Stein added nine points for the Wildcats, who tied the longest win streak in school history and advanced to Saturday’s seminal against the Auburn-LSU winner. Jon Horford scored 15 points and Eli Carter 11 for the eighth-seeded Gators, who made just two of their nal 12 shots and were 9 of 27 from the eld after halftime. Florida shot 39 percent but got just four points from Dorian Finney-Smith one game after he scored 23 with 11 rebounds against Alabama. Kentucky had a lot to do with that.

Halfway home, it felt like a long way to go considering all the players behind him. The Copperhead course at Innisbrook is such a demand ing test that the players who made the cut on the number were still only seven shots behind. De Jonge rolled in a 50foot birdie putt on No. 7 and nished with a birdie on the uphill ninth hole for a one-shot lead over Jordan Spieth, Henrik Stenson, Ryan Moore, Derek Ernst and Kevin Streelman. Lucas Glover, Sean O’Hair and Ian Poulter were two shots behind. De Jonge, who has never won on the PGA Tour, was at 6-under 136. Woods to miss Bay Hill: Tiger Woods won’t be at Bay Hill next week for the Arnold Palmer Invitational, but still isn’t ruling out the Masters. Woods said on his website that he will not play at the tournament he has won eight times. Woods hasn’t played since he withdrew after 11 holes at the Farmers Insurance Open with tightness in his lower back, and a short game that was in even worse shape. He said last month he would not return to golf until his game was tournament ready. Woods says he is making strides and hopes to be ready for the Masters.

AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The statistics show that Kevin Harvick is the driver to beat at Phoenix International Raceway. His speed, coupled with the unbeliev able momentum he’s had since late last season, shows he may not be beatable at all in the desert. Harvick won the pole Friday at Phoenix, where he’s won four of the last ve races and six for his career. His lap of 140.751 mph in his Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet gave him his rst ever Sprint Cup pole at the track he loves. It was yet another milestone for the defending NASCAR champion and his No. 4 team, coming off Harvick’s rst career victory at Las Vegas. “To get that rst pole with these guys and celebrate anything that we hadn’t done every week is just a new adventure,” Harvick said. “It’s pretty special to be a part of a group of guys like this.” Asked what it will take to beat him Sunday, Harvick smirked. From the back of the room, second-place qualier and Daytona 500 winner Joey Logano waited, “Tell us the secret!” he yelled to Harvick. Harvick didn’t sound as if there is a surere way to keep the No. 4 out of victory lane. “There’s just so many circumstances that you can’t control, so many things that can go wrong, mistakes that you can make,” Harvick said. “We can make some bad de cisions as we go through practice and miss the balance when we start the race. There’s just a lot of things that can go wrong.” Logano heard what Harvick was saying loud and clear. “I don’t know if you noticed his answer — the only was he can get beat is him screwing up. I don’t know if you heard that,” Logano said. “Sounds like it will take a mistake or crash or strategy call.” But Logano, who has a win among his three top-10 nishes this season, isn’t giving up. His Team Penske Ford has been just as consistent as Harvick so far this year, and if he can hang with Harvick over a long run Sunday, he believes he has a chance. “We work hard to make our cars faster than his, and we have been getting closer,” Logano said. “I feel like the last three times we have been here we have been a second-place car. That next step is a pretty big step to try to nd more speed.”Harvick on the pole at Phoenix NASCAR | COMMUNITY CALENDARBASEBALLGame Day Heat: 12U travel team looking for players.

The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 SP Page 3 the Rays No. 3 starter, and Colome the leading candidate to take the rotation spot already open due to Matt Moore’s recovery from elbow surgery. Manager Kevin Cash is not ruling either out for the start of the season in 3 weeks, but it seems unlikely either will be ready. If not, they would be looking at lling out the rotation after Alex Cobb, Chris Archer and Jake Odorizzi with two pitchers from an inexperienced group led by Nathan Karns and including Matt Andriese, Burch Smith, Mike Montgomery, Enny Romero and Everett Teaford. “The way things are shaping up, there’s going to be opportunity,” Archer said. “I’m not going to necessarily say I’m discouraged, but some guys are going to have to step up, no doubt. We don’t want to rush either of those guys back because we know what happens when you try to rush. ... “We’re going to have to get creative. We might have to piece some things together. But we still have good arms.” Colome didn’t report to camp until Tuesday, delayed more than two weeks in his native Dominican Republic due to visa issues. He had been throwing regularly, and after watching a Wednesday batting practice session, Rays ofcials seem condent he was not that far behind, planning to get him in a game this weekend. But then Colome got sick Wednesday night and worse Thursday. He was diagnosed with pneumonia, and is now being monitored and treated with antibiotics, and may see a pulmonary specialist. Cash said they would know more soon about a schedule for his recovery. But it would seem Colome would need at least a week, and perhaps longer, just to get back on the eld, and then would have to rebuild his arm strength. “He’s going to be out a little bit,” Cash said. “He’s been ghting to get out of there to get here. And then he gets here and he gets sick. But the good thing is he did come in in shape. His arm was good. He was keeping up to speed with everything. Hopefully this doesn’t set him back too much.”COLOMEFROM PAGE 1 SURPRISE, Ariz. — Yu Darvish said he didn’t need any more opinions once the rst doctor recommended season-ending surgery on the ailing right elbow of the Texas Rangers ace. The Japanese righthander waited for two more reports anyway before the announcement that Dr. James Andrews will perform elbow ligament-replacement surgery on Tuesday in Gulf Breeze, Florida. Red Sox finish $31.5M deal with Cuban infielder Moncada: In Fort Myers, having finalized a contract for a record $31.5 million signing bonus, 19-year-old Yoan Moncada likely will start his minor league career this season at Greenville of the Class A South Atlantic League. Moncada was in uniform Thursday at Boston’s minor league camp in Fort Myers, even before the agreement was announced. Brewers ban hand-slap ping high-fives because of pink eye: In Peoria, Ariz., a clubhouse outbreak of pink eye is forcing the Milwaukee Brewers to find a new way to celebrate top plays at spring training. As in, no high-fiving hand slaps until the condition is under control. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy and pitching coach Rick Kranitz were the latest victims of pink eye. For now, Milwaukee players are supposed to avoid high-fives and instead tap elbows or bump batting glove-covered fists.

Cash borrowed one of the dealer cars to get to the game in Clearwater, joking that it would cost him two tickets but they’d bring the truck over when it was ready. Turned out to be an even better deal for the dealer’s rep when he got to Bright House Field. “I guess he got to watch the last two innings from the dugout. That wasn’t anticipated, but whatever,” Cash said. “That was Joe, the head service guy at Ed Morse GMC.”NOTE OF THE DAYFriday’s first inning run was the first the Rays scored before the fourth inning in 10 spring games.QUOTE OF THE DAY “Pi Day is a little less reoccurring, so 3.14.15, I think the Pi Day is more intriguing.” Chris Archer Tampa Bay pitcher on Friday the 13th vs. Pi Day (3-14-15) — By Marc Topkin, Tampa Bay TimesPHILLIES 2, RAYS 1Tampa Bay Philadelphia ab r h bi ab r h bi Kiermaier cf 3 0 0 0 Revere cf 3 0 1 0 Mahtook cf 1 0 0 0 Mstrnni cf 0 0 0 0 Jennings lf 2 0 0 0 Hrnndz 2b 4 0 0 0 T.Motter lf 1 0 0 0 Utley dh 2 0 1 0 A.Cabrera ss 3 1 0 0 Althr pr-dh 0 1 0 0 H.Lee ss 1 0 0 0 Nlsn ph-dh 1 0 0 0 Longoria 3b 3 0 2 1 Howard 1b 3 1 1 2 Elmore 3b 1 0 0 0 McGnss 1b 1 0 0 0 Jaso dh 3 0 0 0 C.Ruiz c 3 0 0 0 Frcsco ph-dh 1 0 0 0 K.Hill c 0 0 0 0 Souza rf-1b 3 0 0 0 D.Brown rf 3 0 1 0 Loney 1b 3 0 1 0 Danks rf 0 0 0 0 J.Butler rf 1 0 0 0 Ruf lf 3 0 0 0 Franklin 2b 3 0 1 0 Canzler lf 0 0 0 0 A.Casilla 2b 0 0 0 0 Asche 3b 3 0 1 0 Casali c 2 0 0 0 A.Blanco 3b 0 0 0 0 B.Wilson c 0 0 0 0 Galvis ss 3 0 1 0 Totals 31 1 4 1 Totals 29 2 6 2 Tampa Bay 100 000 000 — 1 Philadelphia 000 200 00x — 2 E— C.Her nandez 2 (2).

We’re still looking into all situations. You can see he’s (at) short, second, back to short, back to second. So there’s a lot of factors. But we hope, I would hope, sooner rather than later, we’ll be able to call him in and say, ‘Hey, this is the plan.’ And I think he would appreciate that.” Cabrera, 29, said Friday he is eager for a decision. He told Rays ofcials, and reporters, he was ne with playing either spot, but wanted to be in one position and not shuttled. Friday, he said that was still the case, but added, unsolicited, “I would love to play short, that was my natural position.” Cabrera was a two-time All-Star at short with the Indians, but amid talk that his range had diminished he was moved to second base after being traded last July 31 to Washington. Part of the Rays’ decision will be based on how well they think Cabrera can play shortstop, part on whether they think any of their other candidates — Tim Beckham, Jake Elmore or Nick Franklin — can do better. If Cabrera ends up at short, they are likely to platoon Franklin and Logan Forsythe at second. Archer sharp: RHP Chris Archer was relatively sharp and “very pleased” with his 3 1/3 innings of work in the 2-1 loss to the Phillies, throwing 50 pitches, 35 for strikes. Archer allowed only two singles through the first three innings, but then a leadoff single to Chase Utley in the fourth and a first-pitch homer to Ryan Howard on a changeup, the pitch he is trying to improve, before getting out Carlos Ruiz on a popup to end his day. “When you don’t execute something that’s 88 mph and you have a 30-home run, 100-RBI guy, you don’t execute, it’s going to get banged,” Archer said. “And we have a lot of those guys in our division. So actually, honestly, I’m at the point where I like adversity, especially in spring training. “Giving up a home run can mess with you mentally. And the fact that I came right back, it went to 3-2 with Ruiz, but I executed quality pitches. I was happy with how it went down. Because there’s going to be times where I do that, and it’s about how you respond. And I think I responded well.” Cash said Archer threw “really, really well” and made noticeable improvements in quickening his delivery with runners on base. Souza scare: RF Steven Souza Jr. said what looked like an injury when he barely ran down the first-base line after grounding out to open the second turned out to be just a scare as he slipped and turned his left ankle leaving the box. After a brief consultation with head athletic trainer Ron Porterfield, Souza stayed in the game and showed no after-effects. “Just kind of more scared than anything,” Souza said. It was an eventful day for Souza, who also played the last three innings at first base, an option the Rays want to explore for depth purposes. Game action: The Rays (3-6-1) took a 1-0 lead on a first-inning single by 3B Evan Longoria, who also made one of his signature smooth plays on a bunt. ... The Phillies took the lead on Ryan Howard’s two-run homer in the fourth. ... LHP Mike Mike Montgomery, being converted to relief, had another strong showing with a 1-2-3 eighth. ... LHP Grayson Garvin drew praise for a two-strikeout inning from Cash, who noted how “his ball really carries through the zone.”By MARC TOPKINTAMPA BAY TIMES Golf Directory 5301 HERON CREEK BLVD., NORTH PORT Between US 41 & I-75 Exit 182 423-6955 Take a tour online at: “Nice People, Great Golf” Call 625-6911 for Tee Times & Lessons Deep Creek Golf Club KINGSWAY COUNTRY CLUB BECOME A “MEMBER FOR THE DAY ” 1 mile east off I-75 exit 170 (Kings Highway).

Paige also hit a huge shot to beat the clock in the nal minute, helping the fth-seeded Tar Heels (24-10) hold off the tournament’s top seed and reigning champion in a tense nish. Freshman Justin Jackson scored a season-high 22 points to lead the Tar Heels, who never trailed and led by as many as 13 points before all-ACC guard Malcolm Brogdon singlehandedly brought the Cavaliers (29-3) back. The Tar Heels shot 55 percent against Virginia’s tough defense, controlled the boards and played solid defense of their own for much of the night to earn their fourth trip to the nals in ve years. Brogdon scored 22 of his 25 points after halftime. No. 4 Villanova 63, Providence 61: In New York, Ryan Arcidiacono hit two free throws with 3.1 seconds left after a questionable foul call, and Villanova escaped Providence to return to the Big East title game for the first time since 1997. The Friars’ Kris Dunn, who shared conference Player of the Year honors with Arcidiacono but outplayed him Friday, made a layup off a turnover to tie it with 12.4 seconds remaining. Arcidiacono then drove to the hoop and Ben Bentil, whose steal and assist led to the tying basket, was called for a foul even though replays appeared to show little contact. No. 6 Wisconsin 71, Michigan 60: In Chicago, Sam Dekker scored 17 points, Frank Kaminsky added 16 points and 12 rebounds and Wisconsin beat Michigan in the Big Ten tournament quarterfinals. Dekker and Kaminsky, the Big Ten Player of the Year, combined to score all their team’s points in a decisive 9-2 run that broke a 54-all tie late in the second half. The top-seeded Badgers opened the tournament on a winning note and will meet Purdue in the semifinals on Saturday. No. 8 Maryland 75, Indiana 69: In Chicago, Dez Wells scored 22 points, Melo Trimble added 17 and Maryland won its first Big Ten Tournament game, beating Indiana in the quarterfinals. The Terrapins got nine points from Wells in the final nine minutes and made just enough defensive stops down the stretch to put away the Hoosiers (20-13). That gave the longtime ACC powers their eighth straight win and a spot in Saturday’s semifinals against the Ohio State-Michigan State winner. Yogi Ferrell led Indiana with 18 points. No. 9 Kansas 62, No.16 Baylor 52: Kansas City, Mo., Wayne Selden Jr. scored 20 points and Kansas turned up its suffocating defense to beat Baylor in the semifinals of the Big 12 Tournament. Perry Ellis returned from an injury to add 11 points for the top-seeded Jayhawks, though their leading scorer limped off the floor after getting tangled up late. Ellis never went back into the game after trainers checked on his right knee. No. 20 SMU 74, ECU 68: In Hartford, Conn., American Conference player of the year Nic Moore scored 20 points and SMU held off East Carolina in the quarterfinals of the American Athletic Conference. Markus Kennedy added 15 points and six rebounds for the top-seeded Mustangs (25-6). The Mustangs were tied with the eighth-seeded Pirates at 64 with 4 minutes left. But SMU closed the game on a 10-4 run, hitting eight free throws down the stretch. Terry Whisnant and Antonio Robinson each had 18 points for East Carolina, which made 15 3-point shots, but missed its last six attempts from behind the arc. No. 22 Arkansas 80, Tennessee 72: In Nashville, Tenn. Rashad Madden made four late free throws that helped Arkansas overcome blowing a big lead in an 80-72 victory over Tennessee in the Southeastern Conference Tournament. The second-seeded Razorbacks led 55-35 early in the second half before missing 12 of their final 15 shots, a drought that allowed the Volunteers to rally to 69-65 with 3 minutes left. Madden (nine points) then made all of his attempts to start Arkansas’ path toward victory at the foul line. No. 24 Davidson 67, La Salle 66: In New York, Tyler Kalinoski beat the clock with a driving layup to cap a crazy comeback by Davidson in the Atlantic 10 quarterfinals. Top-seeded Davidson trailed almost the entire game and was down nine after Jerrell Wright’s dunk for the Explorers with 4:45 left, but ninth-seeded La Salle didn’t score another point. Steve Zack dominated inside for La Salle with 24 points and 15 rebounds and Wright had 19. Jack Gibbs led Davidson with 22 points.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSWildcats top Friars on controversial free throws AP PHOTOVirginia’s Anthony Gill, left, and North Carolina’s Joel James, right, battle for a ball during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game in the seminals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. MEN’S BASKETBALLBubble Watch: Indiana didn’t help itselfThere’s always talk this time of the college basketball season that the conference tournaments — especially in the power ones — are nothing more than reasons for, as the late Marquette and Utah coach Rick Majerus used to say, “four-day cocktail parties.” Yes, they are fun and great reasons for alumni to get together in a city that usually has multistar restaurants. But the tournaments are the chance for those teams that didn’t have great regular seasons to improve their resumes and impress the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee. Take Indiana, for example. The Hoosiers entered the Big Ten Tournament with a 19-12 record and a resume that wouldn’t exactly assure a place in the 68-team eld. They beat Northwestern in the second round, not a great win in itself but a chance to face No. 8 Maryland in the quarter nals. A win there over a team with an RPI in the top 10 would be why coaches never want to get rid of the tournaments. It didn’t happen for the Hoosiers on Friday and a 75-69 loss might not be enough to get them that bid. Indiana started the day with an RPI of 53, a ranking behind other bubble teams such as Oklahoma State, LSU and Old Dominion. No bubbles: Forget the conference tournaments for a minute. On Saturday night the Ivy League — the only conference that doesn’t have a postseason tournament — gives us an old-fashioned, winner-moves-on, loser-is-crushed playoff game. Harvard and Yale — names that have been a college rivalry before many of today’s current schools even existed — meet to break the tie at the end of the season. The winner gets the conference’s NCAA berth, the loser might get a chance at the NIT but that wouldn’t ease the emotion of losing a classic like this. To make it even more dramatic, the game will be played in the Palestra in Philadelphia, one of college basketball’s best venues, a building that oozes history. Tough road: Success in a conference tournament doesn’t always translate into waiting for word on Selection Sunday. Take the Auburn Tigers. They beat LSU 73-70 in the Southeastern Conference quarternals, their third win in as many days in Nashville, Tennessee. The run is most probably over for the 13th-seeded Tigers because top-ranked and undefeated Kentucky is up next in the tour nament. The trio of wins gives Auburn a 15-19 record and even a win over the Wildcats wouldn’t be near enough to earn an at-large berth. The only was Auburn will keep playing is to win the SEC tournament and that would mean ve wins in as many days. The team Auburn beat Friday is denitely on the bubble. LSU (22-10) has lost two of its last three and coach Johnny Jones knows his Tigers don’t control their own destiny anymore. “We have been in a tough conference and we’re hopeful on Sunday that our name is called,” Jones said.

The Vikings will send a fth-round draft pick to the Dolphins for their seventh-round selection in the swap that was nalized on Friday night. The trade came two years after the Vikings tried to sign Wallace, who was benched by Dolphins coach Joe Philbin in the second half of their nal game last season after an argument between the 28-year-old and the coaching staff. Wallace led the Dolphins with 10 touchdowns in 2014, his second season with the team, but he rarely clicked with quarterback Ryan Tannehill on long passes and was unhappy he wasn’t targeted more. The Pittsburgh Steelers biggest move during the first week of free agency was making sure their franchise quarterback didn’t get away. The team signed Ben Roethlisberger to a five-year contract. Financial terms were not immediately available but Roethlisberger and team president Art Rooney II both called it fair for both sides. Percy Harvin is rejoining Rex Ryan, agreeing to a one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills. Two people familiar with the deal told The Associated Press that the wide receiver-kick returner is headed to Buffalo. He was released this month by the Jets after playing for Ryan last season in New York.TENNISSerena Williams greeted with applause in Indian Wells return: In Indian Wells, Calif.,an error-prone Serena Williams rallied from a 5-3 deficit to win the opening set in her first match at Indian Wells in 14 years. Williams yelled and clenched her fists after a backhand volley winner gave her the first set, 7-5, against Monica Niculescu of Romania. The crowd warmly applauded her, with the stadium eventually filling up as the match went on. Williams had played just one Fed Cup match since winning her 19th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in January. She looked rusty and kept a serious demeanor except for occasional displays of emotion when she started winning points. SOCCEROrlando City gets 1st MLS win: In Houston, Pedro Ribeiro forced the action that led to Houston goalkeeper Tyler Deric’s own goal in the 74th minute and expansion Orlando City beat the Dynamo 1-0 for its first MLS victory. Ribeiro raced around Deric after he stuffed the keeper’s attempt to clear with a long ball. Deric wrapped his arm around Ribeiro’s head to prevent the open net goal and then tackled Ribeiro into the net with the ball after it was too late. Deric’s blunder overshadowed a couple of crucial saves against Orlando City’s Kaka in the 41st and 65th minutes. Donovan Ricketts earned the shutout for Orlando City (1-0-1) although the Dynamo (1-1-0) failed to put a shot on frame. It was the only league meeting between the teams this season. — By The Associated Press rff rfntbbnn rfrfntttbfb bnr fbntbbrf brffntnb nnrffntnb fn r‘’“ ”” $ 49 before 7:45am $150 $ 79 after 7:46am-1pm $ 69 after 1pm 4:00 TWILIGHT RATE ONLY $39 Not valid with other offers. 7-Day Advance Tee Times (941) 423-6955 $ 49 after 1:30pm 4 PLAYER SPECIAL $ 269 adno=50482863 HERON CREEK qfilf .

Charlotte sent ve of their seven qualiers through the rst round with Dylan Mooney (132 pounds) and Bucky Dennis (285) advancing to the championship seminals. Ryan Rubenacker (106), Chandler Pritchett (170) and Dalton Mills (195) all battled back through their second round of wrestlebacks to stay alive in the medal hunt. “Both (Dennis and Mooney) are solid guys that have been here before,” Tarpon coach Evan Robinson said. “We’re looking for positive things from them tomorrow.” Charlotte was in sixth place with 34 points in the Class 2A scoring.

Calvin Hough belted a run-scoring double for the Bobcats in the bottom of the first inning, scoring Chase O’Neil with the game’s first run. Starting pitcher Charlie Davidson had a double in the big second inning for the Bobcats. North Port loaded the bases with one out and a throwing error on Dominic LeFever’s sacrifice bunt scored all three runners, giving the Bobcats a 4-1 advantage. Three more hits brought in three runs to give the hosts a 7-1 edge by the end of the second. But the Thunder scored one run in the top of the third and then unloaded seven hits and seven runs in the fifth to take the lead for good. Out of Door Academy (9-2) added one run in the sixth and two more in the seventh to close out its scoring. The game was delayed 25 minutes in the top of the seventh inning because of a brief rain storm. Davidson started the game on the mounded and went 413 innings before being relieved by Charlie Topp. Ryan Corso then relieved Topp in the top of the seventh and finished the game. In the fifth inning, three Bobcats players were hit by pitches in a row with two outs, but the hosts were unable to score. “Our guys played pretty well at first both offensively and defensively,” North Port coach Dan Pavlue said. “But I think we may have coasted a bit when we had the big lead. But give them (the Thunder) credit. They’re a good team and they hit the ball very well.”OUT OF DOOR 12, NORTH PORT 9ODA 011 071 2 20 3 NORTH PORT160 000 1 — 9 10 0 Max Monroe, Jimmy Kuebler (2), Cam Smalley (3), Jake Romine (5), Duncan Cappar (7), Owen Ragsdale (7) and Parke Phillips; Charlie Davidson, Charlie Topp (5), Ryan Corso (7) and Dominic LeFever.

Toyota Motor Corp. signed on as a global Olympic sponsor Friday in a landmark deal reportedly worth nearly $1 billion, becoming the rst car company to join the IOC’s top-tier marketing program. The eight-year deal underlines Asia’s growing inuence in the Olympics, bolsters the IOC’s long-term nancial security and gives Toyota a worldwide platform that shuts out rival auto manufacturers. The deal starts globally in 2017 and runs through the 2024 Olympics. It will cover three consecutive Olympics in Asia, including the 2020 Tokyo Games on Toyota’s home turf. The International Olympic Committee’s TOP sponsorship program gives companies exclusive worldwide mar keting rights and permission to use the Olympic rings in advertising. Terms of the deal were not announced, but Japanese media reported Toyota will pay $835 million — a record by far for any IOC sponsorship deal. Four-year TOP sponsor ships have usually sold for about $100 million and eight-year agreements $200 million, so the Toyota deal represents four times that. Toyota joins as a sponsor in the new “mobility” category. “This is a very symbolic day,” IOC President Thomas Bach said after signing the agreement in Tokyo with Toyota president Akio Toyoda. “It is the rst time in the successful history of the TOP program that we have had a mobility category.” Toyota becomes the third Japanese company to become a worldwide Olympic sponsor after Panasonic and Bridgestone. Toyota also becomes the 12th TOP sponsor overall and third committed through 2024. Other TOP sponsors include Coca-Cola and McDonald’s. The Toyota deal covers the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and the 2022 Winter Games and 2024 Summer Olympics. The host cities for the 2022 and 2024 games have not yet been selected.Toyota drives onto Olympic stage BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS OLYMPICSAutomaker signs record sponsorship contract Thomas Quigley, M.D. Board Certified Eye Physician & Surgeon complete medical exam with one of our board certified eye doctors includes prescription for eyeglasses, and tests for cataracts, glaucoma and other eye diseases.

An article published on March 7 stated When I was in high school and college, my friends and I lost many brain cells. Hey, we were on our own for the first time ever, without cur fews and having to worry about our mothers or fathers checking up on us and our daily activities. It was a time when you did not have to tiptoe into the house hoping you would not knock over a lamp or bang your toe on a piece of furniture, forcing a yell and blowing your cover. Even if you did not abuse your brain when you were young and dumb, we lose brain cells as we age. Degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s kills off brain cells. The brain actually shrinks. Additionally, many important brain functions slow down. With proper exercise and diet, the brain will slow down the cognitive decline that begins at the age of 45. Exercise boosts the chemicals in the brain that support and prevent the degeneration of the hippocampus. The hippocampus is an important part of the brain for memory and learning. Here is the best part: Studies have shown that cardiovascular exercise can create new brain cells, known as neurogenesis, and improve overall brain performance. What a relief! There is still hope for myself and the friends of my youth. More importantly, there is hope for one and all — young and old, just by exercising. A rigorous workout has been proven to increase levels of a brain-derived protein in the body. It is also believed to enhance decision making, higher thinking and learning. Finally, exercise can help control addictions, like alcohol, drugs, smoking and, to a lesser extent, sex and food. The brain naturally releases dopamine in response to pleasurable activities, including exercise. The problem is some people become addicted to the effects of dopamine and the substances that produce them. Unfortunately, some people become addicted to drugs, alcohol and smoking to obtain the effects that dopamine produces. The good news is exercise can help in addiction recovery. As stated above, exercise helps the brain release dopamine. The result is you will feel better mentally, emotionally and physically. Drugs, alcohol and smoking do not make you feel better physically. They are very damaging to the brain and body and lead to emotional and mental problems. Exercise, however, has only positive results. The choice does not seem that difficult — it’s just hard to make the decision to turn your life around. To those with addictions, good luck in making your life a better one. The people who love you will be relieved that they do not have to worry about you all the time. Think about them as additional motivation.

Page 4 The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 Despite the morning’s chill and a strong breeze that lasted throughout the day, 80 tennis players from all over the area converged on the courts at the Isles Yacht Club, 1780 W. Marion Ave., Punta Gorda, on March 7. It was the rst of a monthlong series of events geared toward raising money for the ght against leukemia. “Eighty players means 40 teams, and that’s a lot to organize and manage,” said Sherwood Zink, who co-chaired the events’ steering committee with fellow member Kirt Klaholz. Tennis pro Rainer Ruhland managed the tournament, monitoring play and recording the results. Players were divided into divisions based on the U.S. Tennis Association’s ranking system. There were no mixed doubles; women played against women and men played against men. Play was based on no-add scoring, Zink said. In the case of a tie, the tie-breaker was a no-add point. The tournament continued March 8, with winners of the rst round going to the nals bracket and the others to the consolation bracket. In the end, every team played at least twice. “I love the format this year,” said player Shirley Boyd from Lakeside Plantation in North Port. Last year’s tournament was a round-robin format. “It was a little windy out there today, but all four players had to deal with the wind so it didn’t really matter.” Her tennis partner, Donna Ford, added, “Isles Yacht Club always does a great job on the tournament. It’s very well-run.” This is the 11th year the IYC has sponsored the Leukemia Cup, along with other sponsors. A steering committee of 12 and about 30 volunteers took care of distributing Gatorade and water, checking on court play and selling rafe tickets for a variety of prizes. Grand Slam Tennis Company and Wrigley’s Tennis Shop each donated a tennis bag and equipment. Three pros — Ruhland, Margit Bannon and Jak Beardsworth — donated lessons, and the Miami Open donated two tickets. In addition to the tennis tournament, other events for the month are: March 14: A Small Boat Regatta will take place on Charlotte Harbor. Check-in and registration begins at 8:30 a.m., with a 9 a.m. Skippers’ Meeting to follow. The rst race warning signal will sound at 11 a.m. A minimum donation of $25 per person sailing is requested. March 14 and 21: A Billiards Tournament will span two weekends. The preliminary round begins at 1 p.m. March 14 at Diamonds Billiards, 1242 SW Pine Island Road, Cape Coral. The nals will take place at the IYC’s Billiards Room at 6 p.m. March 21. This is a double-elimination, eight-ball contest, and the fee is $30.

Page 6 The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 PUNTA GORDA — Some people may think prescription drugs are not that harmful because they are prescribed, but coalitions ghting abuse are saying it’s a mess that needs to be cleaned up. Drug Free Punta Gorda Coalition urged folks to clean out their medicine cabinets as a part of their spring cleaning at its Tuesday meeting. The coalition is a part of Drug Free Charlotte County, a nonprot organization founded in 2000 to prevent youth drug abuse. DFCC also has coalitions of community advocates promoting initiatives and campaigns against drug abuse in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and Englewood. Diane Ramseyer, executive director of DFCC, said anti-drug coalitions usually have at least one take-back day to dispose of unused prescription medications in the proper way, but this year coalitions decided to expand the effort from March 23 to April 25. “This is only one small thing to do,” Ramseyer said. “This is not the only answer. But this is just a part of it.” Prescription drug abuse has become an epidemic in Florida, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report shows, with deaths resulting from their abuse quadrupling in the past decade. Some prescription drugs most commonly misused by youth are Ritalin and Adderall, diagnosed for attention decit hyperactivity disorder, as well as oxycodone, diagnosed for moderate to severe pain. Chrissie Salazar, a public outreach coordinator for DFCC who is also building the coalition in Punta Gorda, shared local data from a survey which asked Punta Gorda teens if they actually used prescription drugs — and how often — in the past 30 days. It found high school use is up from 13 percent in 2013 to 18 percent in 2014. Middle school use went up from 4 percent in 2013 to 5 percent in 2014. The coalition usually ips the statistic to show how many youth are not using. For example, 82 percent of high school students are not using. “We always present everything in the positive, but there are times when we need to face what’s going on,” Salazar said. “Up until two years ago, this wasn’t even on our plate Like so many things, the age of use has come down.” Salazar added perceived drug use was much higher, with about one out of every three students perceived to be using these drugs in eighth-grade. In addition to presenting the data, she also dispelled three myths, including “everybody’s doing it,” “these drugs are safe” and “most students who use prescription stimulants non-medically do well in academics.” She also made an emotional appeal to the small group of concerned citizens, showing YouTube videos from teens who spoke out against prescription drug abuse. The clips showed the toll it had taken on a handful of their peers and their communities, with a few overdosing, one in recovery and another with permanent brain damage. Salazar had a few recommendations for both parents and students in the community to help stem this epidemic. One, get a lock box for their prescrip tion drugs; two, speak up about the problem; and, three, clean out their medicine cabinets.

The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 Page 7 Nearly all Americans understand that relaxation time is essential to good health, yet most of us don’t spend nearly enough time unwinding during a typical day or week. While our society acknowledges that kicking back is indispensable, we don’t seem to be practicing what we preach. Indeed, 99 percent of Americans think relaxation is important, yet they actually spend less than 5 percent of their day relaxing, according to a new independent research study commissioned by Princess Cruises. The goal of the research was to better understand the latest trends about how many of us actually relax and how we go about doing it. Nearly half of Americans report they’re more stressed than their significant other, with a whopping 82 percent of men indicating that their partner is the stressed out one. Music topped the list of relaxation techniques for those surveyed, with 48 percent reporting music helps them take it easy. Interestingly, only 18 percent find exercise is a good relaxation tool. The most surprising findings were that relaxation causes 62 percent of parents to feel guilty and that nearly one third of Americans surveyed reported being stressed out simply by the thought of relaxing. So try to beat the odds and make time to unwind.Make time to unwindPROVIDED BY STATEPOINT PHOTO PROVIDEDBe sure to relax and adno=50481914 Night,day,evenatplay......It's all aboutyou.+ St. Lucy's Eye SurgeryCenter has been offering eye surgeryfor the South Floridaarea for twenty five years.

Page 10 The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 On the surface, Patricia Huff and Maureen Bonness had a thoughtful, innocent idea. Build a bike trail through Everglades, called the River of Grass Greenway, to give cyclists a safer and more intimate look. The 76-mile path would run parallel to the Tamiami Trail. Take existing facilities along the trail and add others where needed. Work with the Miccosukee and Seminole tribes, as well as botanists, naturalists and other agencies, to put up signs and plaques as a way of educating visitors about the area and its history. However, there are obstacles to the trail — at $500,000 to $1 million per mile, the cost could run between $38 million and $76 million. Then there are environmentalists who are afraid of the damage it could create and the not-in-my-backyard groups. “Our concern is not opposing a per son on a bicycle or the right to bicy cle,” said Betty Osceola, a Miccosukee Indian. “But as we look at plans on the grand scale they’re proposing, it’s not helping the environment.” The bike trail would run through six national and state parks, as well as protected wetlands, critical habitat, across two native reservations and a World Heritage Site. Karen Dwyer, a founder of the Naples-area environmental and human rights group Stone Crab Alliance, said there will be a five-day protest march along Tamiami Trail in the Everglades starting March 29. That’s the same time approximately 60 bicyclists will make their annual ride from Fort Myers to Key West. They’re planning on staying in Everglades City on March 29. “This is the last place they were driven to,” Dwyer said of the Native Americans. “There’s no place else to go. They don’t want a recreational bike path built in their backyard. You can try to be as ecological as you can, but there’s going to be destruction.” Mark Heinicke, a senior park planner with Miami-Dades County Parks and Recreation, said it’s hard to be specific on what the trail will be because most of the plans are conceptual. He added nothing has been funded beyond a feasibility study and master plan. “In my mind, there’s not much to protest,” he said. “We’re not revving up the bulldozers. What are they protesting? An idea?” Heinicke adds that there are many phases and after each one, the project could be stopped. “There a lot of hoops and hurdles to make it work, if it works,” he said. Money is one of those. He said funding for the project would come from a variety of federal, state, local and private sources. Even if given the go-ahead, the project would be done “piece by piece, mile by mile,” Heinicke said. “Rarely are these done all at once.” With steering committee meetings and public presentations still needed, Heinicke said the final feasibility study won’t come out until June or July at the earliest.Bicyclists’ viewHuff has biked Europe twice with her husband Steve and has made two cross-country trips from Florida to Oregon during the past 15 years. “Ever since that first bike trip across the United States in 2000, I started thinking that we should have more opportunities for bicycling in Southwest Florida,” Huff said. “We didn’t really have opportunities other states had.” Huff said she also received that feedback when she spoke with other cyclists going cross country. “They were on the West Coast trying to go the East Coast but when they were riding on the Tamiami Trail, it wasn’t that safe,” she said. For the past nine years, she and Bonness have led the charge for a bike path. The Naples Pathways Coalition assisted their efforts. That work included receiving grants for the project, which led to the feasibility study. “They’ve been trying a long time to get this done,” Heinicke said.

The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 Page 11 The cost could run between $38 million and $76 million.“Typically, a trail project takes a while. It’s like a quilt. And this project is more complicated than others because of environmental issues. You have to knit all these ideas into one coherent vision.” Joe Bonness, a Southwest Florida resident and seven-time world champion in the Ironman and half Ironman, believes the path will become a tourist destination and a great way for people to get an up-closeand-personal look at the Everglades. “There will be access away from the roadway and people can get a better view of the Everglades, away from the traffic,” he said. “Families can do it because there will be non-motorized access. You get away from the speedy traffic, and it’s better for your lungs. The last thing you want to worry about when you’re looking for birds and alligators and deer is an 80,000-pound vehicle coming by you.”Bike path objectionsObjections to the idea come in two categories: those who are afraid it will endanger the environment and those who believe it will endanger fragile Indian history. “Everything will be affected — the land, the water, the animals, all the plant life, the ecosystem,” Osceola said. “People are part of the ecosystem. They want to show beauty but they’re going to destroy beauty to show it.” “There is a wide ecological foot print that it has,” said Houston Cypress, an influential member of the Miccosukee Tribe. “In some areas it goes out 100 feet or more. And there will be access points, which is more construction.” Cypress said no one has reached out to the Miccosukee to inform them of the proposed bicycle path or to take input from them, so he and others see the path as another invasion into their lands and lifestyles. “There are established areas where people can bicycle, canoe and hike,” he added. “And we do not need another impediment to the Everglades restoration.” Osceola added no one should have the right to use the land since the Miccosukee have a document from 1845 in which President James Polk deeded them 5 million acres in South Florida. She believes that agreement still stands as the tribe has never accepted money for the land’s use despite more and more projects being done without the tribe’s permission. Nearby, at Coopertown Airboats, owner Jesse Kennon said he’s concerned about the bicycle path as well. “If they’re natural paths that’s one thing, but if it’s paved through cypress strands then that’s detrimental to preserving the Big Cypress,” Kennon said. “If they’re using levees and existing roads, that’s OK with me. But if you’re running bulldozers and coming back with pavers, that’s different.” News-Press writer Chad Gillis contributed to this report.

Page 12 The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 A simple fall can change your reality. One day you know the difference between a hairbrush, a toothbrush, or a paintbrush. But after a head injury from a fall, you might lose your discernment and forget which goes on first, your shoes or your socks. It’s reality for those who fall and sustain a traumatic brain injury, known as TBI. According to the Centers of Disease Control, falls are the most common cause of TBI. Twenty to 30 percent of people who fall not only have head traumas, but also suffer moderate to severe lacerations and hip fractures. Research shows that these injuries can make it hard to get around or live independently, and increase the risk of early death. What’s more, many people who fall will develop a fear of falling and will start to limit standing and walking activities. Unfortunately, the limits turn into loss of physical fitness and can increase the odds of falling. One of the keys to preventing a fall is improving balance. As we age, natural changes in hearing, vision and proprioception (the awareness of where one’s body is in space) can offset balance. If seniors can learn to use these senses better, they will be less likely to fall. Experts in balance training say that customized therapy can improve our senses and can offer life-altering tips to withstand threats to our equilibrium. Research shows that muscle strengthening and balance retraining helps. New Zealand researchers combined the results of many fall studies. After their review, they found muscle strengthening and balance retraining exercises in 1,016 older men and women (ages 65 to 97) reduced the risk of falls and fall injuries by as much as 35 to 45 percent. “Just knowing your risk for falls is an important step of awareness,” says Kimmer O’Neill, MOT, director of rehab for Port Charlotte Rehabilitation Center. She says that therapy gives that recognition as well as personalized tips like removing rugs, installing better lighting, and getting an updated prescription for eyeglasses to improve safety. “Many people don’t know they are at risk for falls,” O’Neill says that those who are in the first stages of losing their sense of balance will modify the way they walk. They will place hands on walls, countertops and furniture to help maintain their balance and make up for a loss of strength. The challenge in therapy is finding the correct therapeutic methods and technology to provide maximum potential. The goal, O’Neill explains, is to identify the best intervention for each individual. For some, a regimen of pool therapy might be enough. For others, it might be weightlifting, practicing walking with their eyes closed or relying on advanced technology called the Biosway. The device allows patients to learn new balance strategies while standing on an interactive platform. The machine assesses how well someone can maintain balance while multitasking. The screen changes, the floor tilts and the patient learns to respond to the changes. In addition, a balance score can be calculated at each session, so patients can instantly know if their balance is improving. O’Neill’s department of balance rehabilitation includes therapists with advanced vestibular training and certification, which means they bring special knowledge of the complex sensors in the eyes, ears and body and how it relates to brain function and balance. “If your fear of falling is holding you back, call to schedule a balance test and evaluation,” O’Neill said. “Together we can renew your balance and improve your confidence.”For more information, call Port Charlotte Rehabilitation Center at 941-235-8011. They offer comprehensive rehabilitative outpatient and inpatient services for short or long term care located at 25325 Rampart Blvd., Port Charlotte, Fla.

The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 Page 13 NEW YORK — Can a tetanus shot help treat brain cancer? A small study hints that it might. A dose of tetanus vaccine let patients live longer when added to an experimental treatment for the most common and deadly kind of brain tumor, researchers report. It “put the immune system on high alert,” paving the way for the experimental treatment to work better in attacking the disease, said researcher Kristen Batich of the Duke University Medical Center. In a paper released Wednesday by the journal Nature, she and others describe a study of 12 patients. Some who got the tetanus shot lived years longer than those who didn’t. Dr. John Sampson of Duke, senior author of the report, called the results promising but noted the study was small, and said bigger studies are needed to conrm the results. A follow-up study has already been planned but isn’t recruiting patients yet, Batich said. Brain cancer experts unconnected with the work were impressed. The results are “very exciting,” said Dr. Nader Sanai of the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix. While he agreed more work is required, “what you have so far, it’s a very positive story.” Tetanus is otherwise known as lockjaw. Vaccines for it are routinely recommended for children and adults. The new study focused on glioblastoma, which killed Massachusetts Sen. Edward M. Kennedy in 2009. Even after surgery to remove the tumor, it usually grows back and kills. The few drugs to treat these tumors have little effect. Half of patients die within about 15 months. The new work is an example of a long-standing effort to harness the immune system to ght cancer, an approach called immunotherapy. The specic strategy it used is called a dendritic-cell vaccine. Doctors remove particular blood cells from a patient and equip them with a chemical target found in the tumor. Then they return the cells to the patient’s body, where they train the immune system to go after the cancer. The 12 patients in the new study were treated with surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. All patients got an ordinary tetanus-diphtheria shot and then three injections of their own cells, spaced two weeks apart. Then they were randomly divided into two groups. One group got a second, tiny dose of the tetanus-diphtheria vaccine at the place in the skin where the cells would be injected the next day. The other group got a dummy dose. The idea behind the tetanus mini-shot was that the immune system “gets revved up in this particular area” so that “the body will be more excited about what’s to come,” Sampson said. Cell injections continued monthly until brain scans showed tumor growing. For the six patients who got the dummy shot, only one was still alive two years after diagnosis, surviving for about 3 years. Still, overall results for this group indicated a small benet from the cell injections alone, Batich said. The results were far better for patients who got the mini-shot of tetanus. Four surpassed two years. One of them lived almost ve years and another nearly six years. Still another is approaching nine years and counting. She is Sandy Hillburn, 68, of Fort Lee, New Jersey. When diagnosed in New York in April 2006, “I was told I had two to three months to live,” she recalled in a telephone interview. But her family ew her to Duke in North Carolina because of its reputation for glioblastoma care, and she was offered a slot in the experimental study. “I was very positive it would help,” Hillburn said. “I said, ‘Sure, thank you.’ I’m still saying thank you.” In the years since then, she has attended her son’s wedding and gained ve more grandchildren. Now she plays soccer with six grandsons in Ohio and Boston. “I look forward to seeing the wonderful people they’re becoming,” she said. She continues to visit Duke once a month for more cell injections. Sampson said it’s not clear why she has lived so long. Hillburn credits the treatment and her medical care at Duke. She also cited the example of her father, who is a 97-year-old survivor of two kinds of cancer. “He just went about his life, and so I did the same thing,” Hillburn said. The study was funded in part by a government grant to a business venture that is licensing the technology. Some of the authors have led patents related to the tetanus strategy. Tetanus shot may help treat brain cancer, study saysBy MALCOLM RITTERAP SCIENCE WRITER It has qualities so remarkable, it could come from the land of Oz (and could become the television doctor’s next big thing, too): a compound derived from a tree growing in South and Central America prompted obese mice to lose 20 percent to 30 percent of their weight. It also allowed normal, healthy mice to chow down on fatty foods — as much as they wanted — and never become obese, accumulate excess fat or develop diabetes. Oh, and it only worked in females. A new study details the effectiveness with which a synthetic compound that mimics a avenoid found in the leaves of the primula tree prompted the muscles of female mice to behave as if they were getting regular, intensive exercise. Compared to female mice who got a placebo, those who got an oral formulation of a compound called 7,8-dihydroxyavone (7,8-DHF for short) burned more calories, became more sensitive to the effects of insulin and developed body compositions that had more lean tissue and less fat. The study also offers cruel justice to any woman who has struggled with weight loss while watching a man drop pounds effortlessly: Male mice who got 7,8-DHF saw no benets from the compound. If they ate too much, they got fat. And once fat, 7,8-DHF did nothing to help them lose their excess weight. In a strange twist, the experimental drug that produced these remarkable effects in female mice is on its way into human testing — as a treatment to delay or reverse the degenerative process of Alzheimer’s disease. Set to be conducted in China and Australia, the impending trials of the compound’s safety and effectiveness may set the stage for its availability one day as a drug for weight loss or obesity prevention. In the meantime, the lead author of the new research said he and his colleagues will seek to make a natural extract of 7,8-DHF available as a dietary supplement — a process that will require much less proof of the product’s safety and effectiveness, but hasten its path to market. The new research, published Thursday in the Cell Press journal Chemistry & Biology, demonstrates that 7,8-DHF stimulates the muscles to produce a hormone call brain-derived neurotrophic factor, or BDNF. When produced inside the brain, the hormone BDNF appears to have powerful effects. It seems to protect the brain from a wide range of injuries, including trauma and oxygen deprivation. Researchers — including the authors of the latest research — are exploring its properties to nd treatments for such devastating brain conditions as Huntington’s, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, as well as for such conditions as depression. Its name notwithstanding, BDNF is also secreted by the muscles, where its effect is no less dramatic. In female mice, BDNF activates a cascade of chemical effects that revved up calorie-burning and fostered normal, healthy weight without suppressing big appetites. “We are quite excited about it,” said senior author Dr. Keqiang Ye of the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. “An equivalent diet pill in humans would allow people to maintain a healthy weight, despite a high-fat diet,” Ye added. “The pill would burn calories without affecting appetite.” Ye said the natural compound that inspired the synthesis of 7,8-DHF has a long history of safe consumption by humans and chimpanzees. In its raw form, however, the avenoid has two problems, he said. It’s not readily bioavailable — its chemical structure is either broken down or altered as it passes through the digestive system. And it’s not concentrated enough to produce dramatic weight-loss or obesity-protection effects. Those obstacles have impeded efforts to test and eventually use BDNF as a treatment for brain diseases. Forced to bypass the gut to administer the drug, researchers had to infuse the hormone directly into animals’ brains to test its effects. While that can be done with a rodent, it’s not a practical therapy for a human. Ye and his colleagues set out to nd a form of BDNF that is pure, powerful and practical enough to test as a drug for Alzheimer’s disease. They screened thousands of experimental compounds for one that got around those shortcomings. The result — 7,8-DNF — provides a much more concentrated dose of the avenoid than could be had by consuming its leaves. And it traverses the intestine intact. Ye said a natural extract from the leaves of the primula tree (or from a plant called Godmania aesculifolia) could provide a sufciently concentrated dose of 7,8-DNF to have a weightloss effect, although he said it might be costly. At the same time, he acknowledged that a synthetic version of the 7,8-DNF is far more likely than a dietary supplement to have the dramatic effects shown in the new study.Potential weight-loss agent from a tree is almost too good to be trueBy MELISSA HEALYLOS ANGELES TIMES (TNS) PHOTO PROVIDEDWhat kind of tree can help people lose weight?

Page 14 The Sun /Saturday, March 14, 2015 Older adults are under vaccinated against pneumonia. Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs that affects people world-wide but is preventable. Approximately 900,000 cases of pneumococcal pneumonia are diagnosed in the United States each year; most of them in adults 60 and older; as many as 400,000 of pneumonia cases are serious enough to require hospitalization. Five to 7 percent of afflicted older adults die from pneumonia each year in the United States. About 70 million adults at highest risk for pneumonia remain unvaccinated, leaving them vulnerable to the disease. Vaccines to prevent pneumonia and its complications are the most effective method of preventing the disease. Vaccines are readily available. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends all adults 65 years and older receive two doses of pneumococcal vaccine according to a recommended schedule. It is important that you discuss your need for the pneumococcal vaccine with your health care provider. A prescription may not be required. The vaccine is available at some pharmacies and at your local health department. Pneumonia often develops following a cold or the flu. It can become a serious health threat. Pneumonia symptoms include high fever, fatigue, chest pain, and difficulty breathing. The symptoms can be severe and may last for weeks or longer. If you have not received the vaccine and experience symptoms, it is important that you make an appointment with your health care provider immediately. Once the pneumonia bacteria invade the lungs and bloodstream, they can cause serious illness, especially in the elderly or and those with low immunity. Older adults may experience other symptoms such as confusion or feeling less alert. Pneumonia symptoms usually develop quickly and may lead to hospitalization or death if not treated immediately. Other measures to reduce the risk of pneumonia include frequent hand washing, cleaning surfaces, “sneeze in your sleeve,” obtaining the flu vaccine, avoiding crowds and close contact with individuals who have symptoms such as coughing and sneezing. Many individuals who appear healthy can actually carry the disease and spread it during personal contact like hand shaking or hugging or when they cough or sneeze. In September 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued updated recommendations on pneumococcal vaccination for older adults. Based on the recommendations from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the CDC recommends that adults 65 and older be vaccinated with PCV13 including those who have previously received PPSV23. Florida Department of Health remains a strong supporter of these recommendations and a promoter of both childhood and adult vaccinations. Your local health department offers a wide variety of immunization services, including but not limited to, PCV13 and PPSV23. For additional questions or to schedule your immunization appointment, please contact the Florida Department of Health in Charlotte County at 941-624-7200. Pneumonia: Facts and preventionPROVIDED BY THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IN CHARLOTTE COUNTY ON THE vac-PCV13-adults.htm Venice Regional Bayfront Health has received Chest Pain Center Reaccreditation with PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) for the second consecutive time from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care. Hospitals that have received SCPC accreditation have achieved a higher level of expertise in dealing with patients who arrive with symptoms of a heart attack. They emphasize the importance of standardized diagnostic and treatment programs that provide more efcient and effective evaluation as well as more appropriate and rapid treatment of patients with chest pain and other heart attack symptoms. They also serve as a point of entry into the healthcare system to evaluate and treat other medical problems, and they help to promote a healthier lifestyle in an attempt to reduce the risk factors for heart attack. To become an Accredited Chest Pain Center, Venice Regional Bayfront Health engaged in rigorous evaluation by SCPC for its ability to assess, diagnose, and treat patients who may be experiencing a heart attack. To the community served by Venice Regional, this means that processes are in place that meet strict criteria aimed at: Reducing the time from onset of symptoms to diagnosis and treatment Treating patients more quickly during the critical window of time when the integrity of the heart muscle can be preserved Monitoring patients when it is not certain that they are having a heart attack to ensure that they are not sent home too quickly or needlessly admitted to the hospital This was the second consecutive accreditation for Venice Regional. “The Chest Pain Center accreditation sets us apart from other medical centers,” says James Landis, M.D., FACC, Interventional Cardiologist. “It is a testament of the continued commitment of Venice Regional’s team of clinicians who provide collaborative services to achieve the most favor able patient outcomes.” Venice Regional was also recognized as one of the nation’s 2015 Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics.Venice Regional Bayfront Health Reaccredited as Chest Pain Center with PCIPROVIDED BY VENICE REGIONAL BAYFRONT HEALTHProstate support groupThe Charlotte County Prostate Support and Information Group will meet from 1 to 3 p.m. March 20 at the Fawcett Hospital H2U facility in the Promenades Mall, 3280 N Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte, next to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s ofce.

Andes Volunteer Community Clinic, 21297 Olean Blvd., Port Charlotte, urges all Charlotte County women without insurance to visit the clinic for a free mammogram. Thanks to the generous support of Susan G. Komen of Southwest Florida and Project Detect from the Riverwood subdivision in Port Charlotte, funds exist to help Charlotte County residents receive screening and diagnostic mammograms, biopsies, and other breast cancer-related procedures all at no cost. Cindy Neads, the director of nursing at the VBA Clinic, reminds us that one in six women between the ages of 40 and 49 suffer from breast cancer, and early detection through an annual mammogram is the best form of cancer prevention. Patients can drop by the clinic or call to schedule an appointment with a breast cancer nurse navigator, who will then set up an appointment for a free mammogram at one of VBA’s partner hospitals or radiology practices.
