You can learn which four teams the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated on the way to winning the Stanley Cup, how many men manned a Seehund, and when Tampa’s rst cigar company opened. These answers (New York Islanders, Montreal Canadiens, Philadelphia Flyers and Calgary Flames; two; and 1886) can be found at the Tampa Bay History Center, which is lled with fascinating exhibits. The waterfront museum, which opened in 2009, takes visitors through the history of Florida, and specically the Tampa Bay area. You’ll nd movies to watch, information to read, paintings to admire, and lots to learn about the history of this region. If you plan to visit, go soon. The museum’s two current temporary exhibits are must-sees: The Art of Piracy: Pirates in Modern Culture is open until April 26. This exhibit is a beautiful gallery of colorful, spectacular paintings of pirates and pirate life. Artists include: “Don Maitz, Rick Reeves and Alberto DeLama, plus original and reproduction works from famed 19th and early 20th century artists Howard Pyle, N.C. and Andrew Wyeth, (and) Frank Earle Schoonover,” the website states. Seeing Pyle’s “Marooned” is quietly moving and Maitz’ “No Prey No Pay” comes alive with vibrant colors. The exhibit also includes history about the Buccaneers’ original logo, sketches from Gasparilla Parade oats, and other historical artifacts from the beginnings of Tampa’s Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla. Operation Drumbeat: Nazi Threat in the Gulf will be available through April. This is a smaller exhibit, but equally interesting. The main attraction is “a 30-foot replica of a two-man World War II-era German Seehund ‘midget’ submarine,” according to the website. The actual Seehunds were only about 39 feet and carried two torpedoes. “The two-man crew were crammed into a tiny space not much larger than a sofa for up to ve days,” the exhibit states. “There was no bathroom, air conditioning, radio or other modern-day comforts.” The exhibit details how the Germans launched attacks in the Gulf and the Atlantic, causing fear for those who lived in the Tampa Bay area or along the coasts. “In all, 157 German crewmen lost their lives in the Gulf during World War II.” The museum’s permanent exhibits also are quite interesting.

But the symptoms didn’t surface until 1992, when little was known about this potentially deadly liver infection. When an effective treatment did come along, the drug regimen cost $150,000. “So I just walked away from it,” he said. Twenty years ago, diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver, the Port Charlotte man was given just ve years to live. Leary will be 71 next month. So with the extra time granted by God, he said, Leary is committed to doing for others what could not be done for himself. Now in stage 4, Leary spoke passionately at Tuesday’s County Commission meeting, saying a $50,000 contribution would keep the free Charlotte County Hepatitis C Clinic open, and save lives. “It’s a silent disease,” he said. “Blood testing is important because you don’t realize you have it.” There were 274 new cases of hepatitis C reported last year in the county, a 24 percent increase from 2013, according to the Charlotte County Health Department. In that time, the community clinic treated 65 patients for the disease, with 55 now in remission. But there is a waiting list of more than 100. “If they can concentrate on this disease, they might nd a cure,” he said. Commissioners did approve a onetime $50,000 offering, but it came with a warning. The clinic would close if an alternative funding source is not found.

The New Jersey native was on his 13th mission when his B-17 Flying Fortress was shot down over Germany — and for the next eight months, he was held as a prisoner of war. Pickell, 95, said he enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1939 and was assigned as an aircraft mechanic on the B-17 bombers. “I wanted to be a pilot and was accepted,” he said. “We went to Birmingham, England, and on my 13th mission we were shot down. We were actually rescued by a German ofcer. I received some shrapnel in my arm. It was 2:30 in the afternoon. I will never forget it.” While Ray Pickell was languishing in a POW camp, his brother Ken, now 90, was serving with the 91st Infantry Division as a machine gunner. He enlisted at 17 years of age, he said, and celebrated his 18th birthday at Fort Dix during The Pickell family sent six sons to warBy AL HEMINGWAYSUN CORRESPONDENTSONS | 6PUNTA GORDA — The man who knocked over a local Bank of America last summer pleaded guilty Tuesday to three counts of armed bank robbery. John Haldemann, 31, who also robbed a Capital Bank in Venice and a Wells Fargo Bank in Naples, entered the pleas at the federal courthouse in Fort Myers. He could face up to 25 years in prison for each crime. The court didn’t immediately set a sentencing date. Haldemann entered the local BOA — off U.S. 41, just south of Muscle Car City — on July 25, wearing a baseball hat and sunglasses. He showed the teller what appeared to be a gun, and got away with more than $11,000, court documents show. Someone in the area noticed a suspicious vehicle, and reported a partial tag number to the Punta Gorda Police Department. The police provided that information to the FBI, which caught Haldemann about two weeks later. The Naples man then was connected to the other crimes, which he committed using a similar method of operation. According to court records, he made off with roughly $3,000 from the Venice robbery June 4, and a little more than $1,000 in the Naples robbery July 12. A spokeswoman for the United States Attorney’s Ofce said it will be mandatory that Haldemann pay restitution. Haldemann’s criminal cases were handled by federal prosecutors because the banks he hit are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comBank robber pleads guiltyBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITER ChristyFEINBERGCOLUMNISTLIVE LIKE A TOURISTCHRISTY | 12 CORRECTION: The driver cited in Friday’s crash at the intersection of Joyce Avenue and Dakota Terrace in North Port, Derrick M.

The Sun /Wednesday, March 25, 2015 C Our Town Page 3 adno=50479006


Our Town Page 4 C The Sun /Wednesday, March 25, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT — Dr. Grigory Pogrebinsky won the unanimous support of city commissioners for three ordinances that the Brooklynbased, and Ukrainianborn, doctor said will contribute to a major development in the Warm Mineral Springs community. Pogrebinsky, who owns 19 acres of land near the city-owned, 87-degree mineral-rich spring, now hopes to construct a full-service wellness center that he says will bring more patrons to the area through the development of a commercial destination centered around the Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa. “This spring was bought in 2010 with two goals,” Pogrebinsky said, “to protect and preserve, and to make the Springs a magnet for economic development in the area.” After nearly three hours of discussion during Monday night’s regular commission meeting, the ordinances were passed in a rst reading to annex, zone and rezone 14.1 acres of the land he owns at Ortiz Boulevard and Trionfo Avenue, to the south and southwest of the Springs. The ordinances, which now will be sent to local and state agencies like the Southwest Florida Water Management District for review before they undergo a second reading by city commissioners April 27, were met with open arms, but also concern for natural resources, by the public and commissioners. The city of North Port and Sarasota County jointly purchased the 81-acre Springs in 2010 for $5.5 million, and had worked to nd a long-term operator. The county, however, decided to sell its half to the city in July 2014 for $2.75 million, when the two entities failed to work out a long-term-operator contract. Before the agreement was reached, Pogrebinsky won a shortterm, 12-month bid to operate the Springs in September 2013; however he refused to sign the contract after inspecting the property and nding more than a dozen safety issues. Now, Pogrebinsky said he is ready to invest in the area, since the city bought the Springs property and reopened it in September to the public for swimming only, under the management of Martin County, Fla.-based National and State Park Concessions. The Springs is popular with Eastern European bathers, who swear by its healing qualities for aliments like back and leg pain, and skin conditions. Ralph Brooks, attorney for the Friends of Warm Mineral Springs — a nonprot, community-based organization with a mission of protecting the natural attraction — said in the meeting’s public comment portion that the de velopment is going to be much more widespread than people think. The development master plan for Pogrebinsky’s project accepted by commissioners Monday includes 269,000 square feet of development, which combines medical facilities with a holistic approach, hotel, retail stores and 72 residential units. He estimates it will cost about $50 million for investors. “This is a project that will put together every thing, like a North Port downtown,” Pogrebinsky said. Brooks said the development would be roughly the size of Cocoplum Village Shops, off U.S. 41 in North Port, and people don’t realize that. “I don’t think that sinks in, because we don’t understand numbers unless we compare them to something,” Brooks told commissioners. Pogrebinsky defends that it will not be that widespread because he will build more “vertical than horizontal.” “I am in the same boat as everyone to make it nice, beautiful and environmentally friendly,” Pogrebinsky said. Local environmental advocate Bill Goetz said he appreciates what the doctor is trying to do, but he wants more assurance the land will be protected. Pogrebinsky said he plans to use the 0.4 acre of annexed land the commissioners approved to keep only as open space and for stormwater drainage because it is near a salt creek. Goetz said he would like to see clearer wording in that ordinance that Pogrebinsky will put up some buffers between the creek and the land to ensure no development will happen. City Commissioner Linda Yates agreed with Goetz, and proposed added text to the ordinance that a buffer be required, which could be anything, 50 feet from the creek on the annexed land. It passed with a 5-0 vote, and Pogrebinsky said he already planned to do so, but understands Yates adding it “for the record.” “From the testimony that I heard from public and staff, I would like to have it in writing,” Yates said. “I think it is important.” Brooks also asked that an archaeological survey be done of all the land before any development begins. Mayor Rhonda DiFranco agreed with Brooks, and said she would like to see the archaeological study that was, according to Pogrebinsky, already completed multiple times over the past two decades. “I am a big science buff; I have been to some of the quieter springs, and there are a lot of artifacts out there,” DiFranco said. “We at least have to address that.” After being obtained through a public records request Tuesday, the “cultural resource assessment” of Pogrebinsky’s land that was conducted in October 2013 by Archaeological Consultants Inc. of Sarasota concluded that no prehistoric or archae ological sites were found on the land. Pogrebinsky added that the U.S. Geological Survey is conducting a study of the water at the Springs as a precaution. “As the biggest investor, I am, more than anybody, interested in the health of the Springs,” Pogrebinsky said. “Without it, this is nothing.”Email: ashirk@sun-herald.comSprings-area wellness center gets first nodBy ALLISON SHIRKSTAFF WRITER POGREBINSKY | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFCenter seeks volunteersThe Pregnancy Careline Center, 1685 Tamiami Trail, Suite 4, Port Charlotte, seeks both female and male volunteers to assist Charlotte County citizens who have an unexpected or otherwise stressed pregnancy. Founded in 1985, the center’s mission is to help and prepare pregnant women in need for a healthy pregnancy and a safe delivery, and to teach positive parenting skills to women and men. Volunteers are needed to help clients with nonjudgmental, caring support in a number of different roles: answering the 24/7 hotline; scheduling pregnancy tests, nurse consultations and ultrasounds; assisting with the “baby boutique” (“billing and cooing” at babies); organizing parenting classes; mentoring moms and dads; supporting adoption services; helping with post-abortion counseling; and assisting with job-bank and housing referrals.

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING? | OBITUARIES LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS It is T-minus two months until the launch of Southwest Florida International’s inaugural nonstop to San Juan, Puerto Rico. This new route from Sun Country Airlines will operate Sundays and Thursdays from May 3 through Aug. 23. Flights will start in Minneapolis-St. Paul, then stop in Fort Myers to pick up additional passengers before landing at Luis Muoz Marin International Airport. And, this month, Fort Myers’ rst nonstop service to Puerto Rico has been hard to ignore. Lee County Port Authority has budgeted $75,000 to help promote the service to the capital city of San Juan. In fact, you could catch the sales pitch in a spot just before 7 a.m. NBC’s “Today” show; before CBS Sunday Morning News; or prime time on Spanishlanguage Univision. Informally, area travel agents and business organizations are promoting the service that’s expected to generate new tourism and other business opportunities for both Fort Myers and historic San Juan — and beyond to the Caribbean basin and to Latin America. For example, the Hispanic American Business Alliance and the faith-based Above Board Chamber of Commerce are planning a promotional event April 29, said Leonardo Garcia, HABA president & CEO. He’s already bought a ticket for the inaugural ight. “There are a lot of people who still don’t know about the ights,” Garcia said, adding that when he mentioned it recently at a Latino symposium attracting about 100 people, “everybody cheered.” Geraci Travel chief Bill Lawton in Fort Myers said he’ll reach out to tour operators. San Juan, Lawton said, “isn’t just a fabulous destination, but a gateway to the Caribbean and to points beyond that.” For cruises in the southern Caribbean, San Juan is an ideal starting point, Lawton added. Southwest Florida International already has a slew of visual reminders of the upcoming service, including digital signs near bag belts, in the airy passenger terminal atriums and on the concourses. The ights will be on 737-700 jets that seat 126 passengers. Fares, including taxes and fees, start at $119 one-way from Fort Myers and $238 one-way from Minneapolis-St. Paul, Sun Country’s base of operations. Air-and-hotel vacation packages also are available. Fort Myers-based real estate agent Maribel Sanchez hopes to catch one of the early flights. She’s from the Dominican Republic; husband Juan Sanchez is from Ecuador. San Juan is a great place for connecting ights to Latin America and the Caribbean. And, Sanchez noted, “driving to Miami or Fort Lauderdale for a ight is no fun.” It’s anticipated Puerto Rican residents will patronize the service as well. An advertising-andpromotions plan for them is still being developed, said Larry Chestler, Sun Country executive vice president. Tickets for the new route have been on sale since mid-November, on “We’re encouraged by what we’re seeing,” Chestler said. If the service succeeds, Chestler said it’s possible the ights would be extended to more times of the year or service developed for other markets in the Caribbean. Said Chestler: “We see this as a starting point.”Countdown on flights to Puerto RicoBy LAURA RUANENEWS-PRESS | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSJudged flower show to bloomThe Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte garden clubs, both members of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs Inc. and the National Garden Clubs Inc., Deep South Region, invite the public to a small standard ower show staged according to the rules of National Garden Clubs.

Our Town Page 6 C The Sun /Wednesday, March 25, 2015 FROM PAGE ONE basic training. And less than three months later he was ghting in North Africa. “Our unit went through North Africa, Sicily and the Italian campaigns,” he said. “I saw a lot of men die.” While passing through Milan, Ken was an eyewitness to history. “I saw the body of (Benito) Mussolini and his mistress hanging upside down by meat hooks,” he said. “They had shot them both and displayed their bodies for everyone to see.” When his company was pinned down in Trieste, Italy, Ken picked up his machine gun and single-handedly moved close enough to keep the enemy from ring so his unit could advance. “They were in a tiled roof shed, about 75 yards or so from us,” he said. “I took a belt of ammo and kept ring at the windows to keep them down so the company could move forward. When they red back at me I can still recall the splat, splat, splat of the rounds hitting all around me.” Ken’s luck ran out when the 91st Infantry was advancing through the Po Valley. “A German 88 artillery shell blew me out of the foxhole,” he said. “Several others were killed. I spent six months in a hospital in Rome and I was sent home. I had made it.” Following in his brother’s footsteps, Harold Pickell, 87, enlisted in the Navy at 17 years of age. But, when his appendix burst, he had to wait his turn to serve. “My rst ship was the USS Chickasaw,” he said. “It was a seagoing tug. We went to Kwajalein. When the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, I was on duty topside and they made us wear dark glasses to protect our eyes from the blinding light.” From there, Harold said he was transferred to the USS Jason, a repair ship that traveled to Saipan, Okinawa and China. “We had to be careful because some Japanese soldiers were hiding on these islands,” he said. “We went ashore and went into a few caves. I almost threw up from what I saw. From the Jason I went to the USS Kermit Roosevelt and served on her until I was honorably discharged in 1948.” All three brothers are snowbirds who spend part of the year in El Jobean. Three other brothers, now deceased, also served during the war — Bill, U.S. Navy; Lester and Larry, both U.S. Army veterans. “My poor mother,” Ray Pickell said. “She worried about us all. “I can still see the banner hanging in our window with six blue stars on it,” Harold Pickell said. “We all served and came home.”SONSFROM PAGE 1 state has applied for a $2 million federal grant, covering a ve-year period, with grant recipients to be announced this fall. If that fails, the Charlotte Commission cannot afford to come to the rescue again. “I’m very fearful that we will be charged with health care at the local level,” Commissioner Chris Constance said. “And I don’t want to start something we can’t nish.” Commission Chairman Bill Truex also cautioned about providing a service that no one else is willing to take on. “This pit gets bigger and bigger and bigger every day and it will grow,” he said. “And we’ll be known as the place to go.” However, signicant advances have been made in the ght against this extremely contagious disease, scaling down both the cost and duration of treatment. Treatment now costs about $30,000 per patient and lasts three to six months. About 80 percent of the clinic’s operating cost goes toward blood testing, lab work and diagnostics. The medication, doctors and facility are provided free to the clinic. “I think we should help them out,” Commissioner Tricia Duffy said.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comINFUSIONFROM PAGE 1MURDOCK — Barbara Richter worried Tuesday that Charlotte County commissioners might create a “Berlin Wall” in Lemon Bay Isles for those residents who like riding golf carts in their subdivision and those who don’t. Richter’s worries were for naught. Commissioners unanimously approved golf carts in the neighborhood. Two weeks ago, commissioners approved golf cart use for two areas of the development — Phases 1 and 2 of the 55years-and-older subdivision — where a petition suggests a majority of residents want to use golf carts on the streets. The commissioners also heard two weeks ago from residents of LBI Phases 3 and 4, who suggested the majority of their residents did not want golf carts in the streets. But the commission chambers lled Tuesday with LBI residents — with those in support raising yellow signs, and those opposing the golf carts raising white signs. The yellow signs clearly outnumbered the white signs. Sandy Godlewsky was one of those who opposed allowing golf carts in the streets. She and others cited safety, enforcement and liability among the reasons to ban golf carts from the roads. “We are not a golng community, nor are we a gated community,” Godlewsky said. “Golf carts must share the narrow roads with fullsize cars.” Questions also arose as to whether or not a petition submitted to the county showed 66 percent of the LBI residents supported golf carts. A second petition suggested the majority of Phase 3 and 4 residents opposed golf carts roaming their streets. The four phases are represented by two different property owner associations — one association for Phases 1 and 2, and a second for Phases 3 and 4. Following directions of Public Works staff, Cheryl Miller, chairwoman of the “golf club initiative,” said the two associations worked together and presented the original petition to all LBI residents. “I am requesting (commissioners) look at LBI as one entity, which it is, and regardless of the two HOA boards,” Miller said. Public Works Director Dan Quick assured commissioners a cursory review of that petition showed it included signatures throughout the subdivision. Lemon Bay Isles, like other subdivisions, faces certain restrictions on golf cart use: Golf carts must be equipped with efcient brakes, reliable steering, safe tires, rear-view mirrors, and red “warning” reectors on the front and rear of the cart. Drivers must be 14 years or older, according to state statutes. Drivers of carts are expected to obey trafccontrol devices. Carts can be operated only between the hours of sunrise and sunset. Lemon Bay Isles joins Mobile Gardens and Holiday Estates — permitted in 2013 — as “mainland” subdivisions in Charlotte County where golf carts are allowed on streets.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comLemon Bay Isles charged up about golf cartsBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER SUN PHOTO BY STEVE REILLYLemon Bay Isles resident Ron Schultz holds his yellow sign encouraging Charlotte County commissioners to allow residents to drive their golf carts in Lemon Bay Isles.

PUNTA GORDA — Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity and Team Punta Gorda are collaborating once again on a reprise of the successful 2014 outreach initiative known as Paint Your Heart Out, Punta Gorda. A small army of local volunteers will work in tandem on April 11 to provide more than a half-dozen homes in the greater Punta Gorda area with a much-needed face-lift. Individual homes selected for painting share several characteristics. Among them are the homeowner’s need for nancial assistance, pride of ownership and suitability of the exterior for painting. In addition to exterior painting and, in some instances, “light repairs,” shrubs will be pruned where required, and new mailboxes will be provided by Team’s Beautication Committee. “We are very excited to partner with Team Punta Gorda for the second Paint Your Heart Out, Punta Gorda project,” Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity CEO Mike Manseld says. “This is an amazing collaboration: Habitat and Team working with local builders, businesses, churches and individuals who will forever change the lives of those in need by offering a gift of kindness through the painting of homes. This simple act will give homeowners an even greater sense of pride.” Among this year’s home sponsors are Charlotte State Bank & Trust, Deep Creek Community Church, Five Star Realty of Charlotte County, Gulfview Construction Management, Hoover Pressure Cleaning, the Punta Gorda Rotary Club, Weiler Engineering and West Coast Builders. Paint is being donated by Habitat for Humanity International, in conjunction with Valspar. All site-preparation materials, supplies, meals and refreshments for volunteers are being donated by local businesses and organizations. Burt Wahlburg, owner of Gulfview Construction, is the project manager. Volunteer coordination is being handled by Charlotte County Habitat. “One of the reasons last year’s event was so successful was because it was embraced by the business community,” according to Team CEO Nancy Johnson. “This year’s event is on track to be just as wonderful. We’re proud to work side by side with Charlotte County Habitat and fabulous volunteers to have such a positive neighborhood impact.” Volunteers will converge between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. April 11 at Deep Creek Community Church, 1500 Cooper St., Punta Gorda, for a light breakfast and a pep talk by Punta Gorda City Manager Howard Kunik. Lunch will be delivered to each home, and work is expected to be completed by midafternoon.

The Sun /Wednesday, March 25, 2015 C Our Town Page 9 Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS A Port Charlotte woman who tried to have 5 pounds of methamphetamine shipped to her last month and then ducked the cops has been caught, according to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Ofce. Law enforcement ofcials in Lee County contacted the local Sheriff’s Ofce Feb. 20 to notify them a FedEx package making its way to Charlotte County possibly contained drugs. A woman serving as a condential informant reportedly told investigators the package was intended for Deborah Ann Scott, 49, who was asking the CI to deliver it. Authorities removed almost all the meth and then let the CI take the package to the meeting location: the Shell gas station on U.S. 17, just east of Exit 164 in the Solana area. Members of the CCSO were hiding there to arrest Scott. When an undercover cop, who was with the CI, tried to take the package to Scott’s vehicle, Scott instructed him to bring it to another car that was in the parking lot. When the drugs were delivered, the signal was given to take down both vehicles, the sheriff’s report shows. However, Scott allegedly ducked down behind the steering wheel, sped past a sheriff’s vehicle try ing to block a gas station exit, blew through a red light, and headed up U.S. 17 toward Arcadia. Authorities nally caught up with the woman Monday at a home behind Murdock Middle School. Scott, of the 23000 block of Seneca Avenue, is charged with one rst-degree felony count of conspiring to trafc in meth and one seconddegree felony count of eeing to elude with wanton disregard. She is being held without bond in the Charlotte County Jail for violating her probation in two other drug-related cases. The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office reported the following arrests: Gary Lee Apple, 63, 200 block of Divinci Drive, Punta Gorda. Charge: disorderly intoxication and corruption by threat against a public servant. Bond: $6,000. Scott Donovan Collingsworth, 42, a previous inmate at the Apalachee Correctional Institution. Charge: violation of probation. Bond: none. Matthew Jacob Elston, 23, of Augusta, Maine. Charge: violation of probation (original charge: possession of drug paraphernalia). Bond: none.

Bond: $2,000. Tawney Shae Postal-Bronson, 23, 200 block of Pineapple St., Englewood. Charge: violation of probation (original charges: two counts of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription). Bond: none. William Joseph Scharp, 52, 18000 block of Steele Ave., Port Charlotte. Charge: battery. Bond: $2,000. Terrance Octavious Scott, 25, of Clearwater.

Charges: two counts of grand theft, and one count each of burglary, grand theft of a firearm, armed burglary and grand theft auto. Bond: $105,000. James Franklin Williams, 41, of Neptune Beach, Fla. Charge: failure to appear. Bond: $8,000. The Punta Gorda Police Department reported the following arrest: Dustin Michael Carpenter, 22, 12400 block of Minot Ave., Port Charlotte.

Our Town Page 10 C The Sun /Wednesday, March 25, 2015 Compassion in approach to fighting illnessOUR POSITION: “Right to Try” a careful, sensible option for terminally ill patients.The 2013 film “Dallas Buyers Club” depicts the exploits of an AIDS patient in the early 1980s who defies law by smuggling unapproved pharmaceuticals across the U.S. border for himself and fellow patients. It’s a fictionalized account of one man’s experience, but the skeleton of the story is accurate. AIDS/HIV patients of that era — well before the development of effective treatments — had no good options. A positive test for HIV amounted to a death sentence for hundreds of thousands. So why not try something — anything — that held the slightest promise of working, even if it meant smuggling unapproved drugs in defiance of the federal Food and Drug Administration? Similar issues apply for others facing terminal illnesses. The desire to try a therapy that gives someone a chance — however remote — seems compelling and compassionate. It is the basis for the proposed Right to Try Act, which won 6-1 approval in the Senate Committee on Health Policy last week. Senate Bill 1052 has been introduced in the Senate by Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg. The House version, introduced by Rep. Ray Pilon, R-Sarasota, is now under review of the House Banking and Insurance Committee. The bill would not unleash a torrent of pharmaceutical quackery on an unsuspecting public. It is narrowly targeted to allow patients diagnosed with terminal illness to seek treatments with an “investigational drug, biological product or device” that passed phase one testing in FDA clinical trials. Patients would be eligible only if no other comparable treatment existed, if they weighed the risks, gave written consent and received an explicit recommendation from their doctor. It also would shield physicians from malpractice lawsuits later on. Eight states have already passed Right to Try Acts. Two more have been approved by legislatures and are waiting for gubernatorial signatures. Another two dozen states are reviewing similar bills. As Sun staff writer Bob Mudge reported this week, Brandes acknowledged his bill was not a panacea. It does not require drug companies to make treatments available; in fact, concern about FDA reaction might dissuade them from doing so. There is also nothing to compel insurers to pay for the treatment — undoubtedly a big drawback for those who might face enor mous bills. However, the aim is true. Brandes told Health News Florida he had friends who were so desperate they traveled abroad for cutting-edge treatments. “I think that’s the last thing we’d want for somebody,” Brandes said. “That’s definitely the last thing I’d want for my friends, so to me it’s really important for them to be able to try those options here under the care and watchful eye of their physician and with the support of their family.” It’s unfortunate, but likely his experience is shared by many more Floridians. Compassion and common sense dictates we join other states giving people a fighting chance for life.Disappointed by seafood festEditor: We attended the Punta Gorda Seafood Festival and were very disappointed. We’ve attended seafood festivals up and down the East Coast and this was the worst of all we’ve participated in. Most seafood festivals have “maximum” seafood choices and a few “miscellaneous” vendors. This was the opposite. Of the 15-plus vendors, only three had fish/seafood options. One had salmon, one had mullet, and the last had fish tacos and lobster options. The lobster vendor clearly was the most popular. My husband waited on line for a lobster roll for 90 minutes. People were giving up their place in line and opting for a hot dog from a push cart, or pork sandwiches, or corn on the cob. No one wants to spend a Saturday standing in line. The event should have been promoted as just a festival, not a seafood festival. What a disappointment, with Charlotte Harbor being the fishing capital of the world. I’m hoping for a better Seafood Fest next year.Michele Teubert Punta GordaNo wonder people don’t voteEditor: Florida politics. We elect politicians to go to Tallahassee and look after our best interest in quality of life. In the past, they have spent many countless hours and money fighting over the size of to-go containers of beer and protect the pockets of Anheuser-Busch, which I happen to like, by the way. It seems they have spent countless hours in keeping 64-ounce containers out of the hands of the public. Really. Put people in jail if they use 64-ounce containers to sell their product? I’m just wondering if you must break another law to get arrested? Drive car while texting? Yep, that’s OK. Sell your beer in a 64-ounce container? You’re going to jail. Really! And you wonder why people don’t go out and vote.Butch Erny Port CharlotteDigest Fox with a pinch of saltEditor: I occasionally watch Fox News just to hear its side of “fair and balanced news.” During the run-up to the Israeli election, I heard a panel lambaste the president for using Chicago-style politics by interfering in Israeli internal politics. Participants were freaking out over the prospect of Netanyahu losing the elections. It would obviously humiliate a Republican Congress which only a few days earlier gave a delirious welcome to this duplicitous leader whose goal was to undermine sensitive international negotiations aimed at restraining Iran’s nuclear program. The concern I have is that my friends are accepting the “facts” from Fox News as gospel. They even write letters to the editor regurgitating, verbatim, the garbage Fox News dishes out as “fair and balanced.” I respect my Jewish friends’ desire to protect Israel. I applaud them. Because of their prominence, their influence on U.S. politics is far more significant than the influence that socialist from Chicago exerts on Israeli politics. Both Democrats and Republicans respond like Pavlov’s dogs to any per ceived threat to the state of Israel. A fortress Israel will not save it from the hostility of its immediate neighbors, indeed from the hostility of the entire world. Netanyahu is the wrong messiah, and Fox News needs to be taken with a dose of salt.Rom Mattesich Punta GordaWhy not drop homestead exemptions?Editor: The front page article in today’s paper, “Homestead fraud jig may be up,” is a sad note on Florida tax policy and an exposure of a vindictive, “xenophobic,” government attitude (to borrow a recently used letter to the editor word). I still have my 2005 non-resident “Notice of Proposed Property Taxes” showing a proposed tax of $3,987 on the home I bought in Harbour Heights for $70,000 in 2000. The tax was increased to $4,587 with the subsequent, $600 MSBU tax for canal dredging for a total tax at 542 percent of the $846 tax I originally paid in 2000. Fair? Thievery? Rather than snooping around for “homestead fraud,” either intended or inadvertent, a simple solution to this would be to gradually drop all homestead exemptions and adjust the millage rate to compensate — but, then, there is that xenophobic thing. Now, about MSBU taxes!Peter Wohld Harbour HeightsWarmists blindly parroting ctionsEditor: I am responding to a letter about global warming in the Sun on March 21 concerning ice cover and sea level. Concerning the disappear ance of ice: Based on satellite monitoring, the Antarctic ice sheet is actually at record extent and Arctic ice is up by 63 percent since 2012. Perhaps this is related to climate having not warmed in 22 years, because of the slight cooling of the sun, expected to last for several decades. Also, according to the letter, the Navy is getting ready for massive sea level rise by 2050 by raising piers at Norfolk. In fact, the sea level has been rising for over 10,000 years and now is rising slightly slower than the average rate, 333 mm per century. That’s slightly under 4.5 inches by 2050. Raising piers in response to a 4.5 inch rise in sea level? You’re joking! Of course, sea level can rise by more than average, if you’re living on a subducting continental plate, and many people are. That’s a bit subtle for the warmists, and mentioning it wouldn’t support their fraud. So to you warmists, a conundrum. Did you know that increasing surface ice reflects more sunlight, and could kick off another ice age? Do you prefer more warmth and food, or a huge decrease in arable land, mass starvation and severely bitter winters? Apparently, credulity is an incurable disease: 22 years of flat to downward temperature trend, and the warmists just keep blindly parroting the same fictions.John R. Doner Port Charlotte Pot possession legal in Florida?Editor: During the past couple of weeks we encountered a situation that we had not thought of. We met several snowbirds who are here for a varied length of time and spend money we appreciate. Now for the question. In the states these people come fr om, marijuana is legal, and they have it in their possession and use it. Now what is our and their legal position on this?Ed, Susan Knueven Port CharlotteEdgewater closing a real inconvenienceEditor: The closing of part of Edgewater is a great inconvenience to us. At the same time construction is going on for U.S. 41. The least the county could have done is to improve the synchronization of stoplights along U.S. 41. Even postponing construction until after the snowbirds leave would have been some small help. One would think that with all the money from the one cent, make that 1 percent additional sales tax that money could be found to fix that problem. Perhaps getting rid of stoplights and creating roundabouts is a solution they might consider, not. The county says it will save them about $2 million by closing Edgewater for two years; that equates to about $1,300 savings each day that thousands of residents and tourists suffer gridlock. With an aging population, many won’t even be with us by the time they finish. Having traveled Edgewater for six years, I never found it overcrowded. Marty Hill Port CharlotteWhat next for drink names?Editor: So, the PC police have gone after a local company because they were offended that they named a beer after a drink that is known and served in almost every bar in the country. I have to wonder, what is next? Will we have to now order a spicy, tomato juice, vodka cocktail because the Bloody Mary was named after a queen who executed hundred of Protestants? Are we going to have to order a Kahlua, Bailey’s, Grand Marnier shot instead of a B-52 because they were used to bomb and kill thousands of people? No more Kamikaze shots, either, just think of all the people who lost family members during WWII. I mean seriously, where does it end? Pretty soon we are going to see decapod crustacean scampi on menus throughout town because the word shrimp is offensive to people of small stature. Shouldn’t this brewery also have to change its name? The word “fat” could be very offensive to people with a weight problem. The city of Punta Gorda probably also needs to change its name. How do you say “Welcome to Husky Point” in Spanish?Emerson Bodiford Charlotte Harbor OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

The Sun /Wednesday, March 25, 2015 C Our Town Page 11 A great deal of planning and coordination led to the 25-month Edgewater Drive Phase 2 (EP2) Improvements project, the project that included the closure of Edgewater Drive on March 2. Representatives of the Charlotte County public works department’s engineering division met with the Charlotte County Board of Commissioners in public meetings several times over ve years to review, revise and nalize plans that included expanding two miles of Edgewater Drive from two lanes to a divided four-lane residential roadway. In addition to replacing the water and sanitary sewer main and an irrigation main, there will be installation of a grass median, landscaping, decorative lighting and bridge railing, and sidewalks. The Sunrise Waterway, East Spring Lake and West Spring Lake bridges are being replaced and roundabouts added at Midway Boulevard, Lakeview Boulevard, West Tarpon Boulevard and Port Charlotte Boulevard. The goals in making these improvements were established early in the process: to improve safety and mobility for the traveling public, including drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians; to preserve and enhance the economic, historic, scenic and natural qualities of the roadway system; to enhance mobility for local residents for day-to-day activities; and to improve a critical corridor that provides a secondary hurricane evacuation route from coastal to inland areas. Now, three weeks since the closure, motorists are becoming accustomed to the new trafc patterns. Some days are tougher than others, but we are all working to adjust our routes. While closing Edgewater Drive and the bridges simultaneously was admittedly a difcult decision, it was a decision that was not made in a vacuum. Residents had opportunity for input at public meetings, including a survey regarding elements of the project. When given a choice between leaving the bridges open and shifting one lane of trafc in each direction as structures are built and demolished, or detouring and closing the bridges at different times to construct replacement bridges in a single phase, 80 per cent chose the detour option to save $2 million — roughly 25 percent of this portion of the project — and avoid up to six months of additional delays. Prior to implementation, the EP2 project team met with stakeholders to ensure communication was coordinated among the sheriff’s ofce, emergency response personnel, Charlotte County Utilities, the Charlotte County school board transportation department, the Marine Advisory Committee, community services’ parks and natural resources division, the U.S. Postal Service, UPS and FedEx. Additionally, more than 120 residents attended an open house in January to ask questions of the project team, which includes OwenAmes-Kimball Co., contractor; Southwest Engineering & Design; American Consulting; and both Charlotte County engineering and CCU. Those who attended had the opportunity to review maps of the detour plan and construction staging zones and learn more about how roundabouts will enhance the project. To date, more than 1,600 users have visited, where all project information is available 24/7. Since January, 270 individuals have signed up through for updates on construction and information for park visitors and boaters, as well as trafc alerts via email and text. Residents can contact the project team through the website or the project hotline at 941-62-GoEP2 (941624-6372) to voice their concerns or questions. We will continue to keep you informed through each step of this important project. I encourage you to visit regularly and sign up for email and text alerts to keep current on closures and other timely news. Even at this early stage, we’re making strong progress on the project and appreciate your patience as we work to improve this critical corridor for Charlotte County’s future. We welcome your feedback via the website or hotline anytime. Ray Sandrock is the Charlotte County administrator. Readers may reach him at raymond. sandrock@charlotte. com. Edgewater Drive: Preparing Charlotte County’s future Ray Sandrock I met with members of the Team Punta Gorda Bicycle Friendly Communities Committee to discuss what steps should be undertaken to upgrade from the current Honorable Mention designation from the League of American Bicyclists.

Our Town Page 12 C The Sun /Wednesday, March 25, 2015 FROM PAGE ONE which orients visitors to the state’s history. Several exhibits provide the messy history of the natives and the Europeans, along with the Seminole Wars. The history of Tampa’s cigar business also is interesting and includes a model of an old cigar factory, which was purposely built with large, open windows facing north and smaller ones on the south side to provide constant air ow. The models describe the functions performed on each level of the building. For example, “Tobacco was prepared on the uppermost oor, where moistened leaves were stripped of stems,” the sign states. “The delicate ngers of women and children performed this task before child labor laws.” Visitors also can learn about the Port of Tampa, the city’s history of sports, and much more. After exploring the 60,000-square-foot museum, take a break and grab some food in the Columbia Cafe inside the Tampa Bay History Center, which is just as good as the original Ybor City restaurant. There also is a small gift shop attached to the museum. The Florida Aquarium and Channelside are within walking distance (for those who are healthy), which can turn a half-day into a full day of fun in Tampa. Christy Feinberg is a senior writer/columnist for the Sun newspapers. You can email her at PAGE 1 The Operation Drumbeat: Nazi Threat in the Gulf exhibit, which features this World War II-era German Seehund replica, is on display through April. SUN PHOTOS BY CHRISTY FEINBERGCigars are a part of Tampa’s history, as is reected in this exhibit at the Tampa Bay History Center. Be sure to eat in the Columbia Cafe inside the Tampa Bay History Center, which is just as good as the original Ybor City restaurant. More than 80,000 people visit the Tampa Bay History Center each year. “Captain Morgan,” by Don Maitz, is one of the many colorful paintings in The Art of Piracy: Pirates in Modern Culture exhibit. | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSLane closures announcedThe Florida Department of Transportation’s District One, contractor, Guymann Construction Inc., is expanding four-lane U.S. 41 to six lanes from Enterprise Drive to Salford Boulevard.

The Sun /Wednesday, March 25, 2015 C Our Town Page 15 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA — What do Aiken, S.C., and Punta Gorda, Fla., have in common? Well, for a eeting moment, City Manager Howard Kunik. Kunik was on a short list of potential candidates for the position of Aiken city manager. But Monday, the Aiken City Council voted unanimously to give the $136,000-a-year job to former Massachusetts state Rep. John C. Klimm. “Aiken was one of those unique opportunities you have to explore,” Kunik said. “Now that that option is off the table, there are no plans to go anywhere.” City leaders were relieved to hear the news, but none was as happy as Mayor Carolyn Freeland. “Delighted, just delighted!” exclaimed Freeland, after hearing that Kunik would be staying put. “We have so many issues to deal with this year,” she said. “I’m delighted Howard will be here to work on them with (the) City Council.” Kunik, who became city manager in April 2005, said the Aiken opportunity appeared quite by chance. About a year ago, Kunik said, he and his wife Helen were driving back to Punta Gorda from North Carolina and decided to stop in Aiken, a small historic city known for its equestrian community. Helen, an avid horse rider, had heard about it through friends and wanted to check out the town. It turns out, Aiken has a charm to it, just like Punta Gorda, Kunik said. The city is 175 years old, with roughly double the population. The couple enjoyed their visit and returned home a few days later, not thinking anything of it. A few months later, Kunik received an email from a corporate recruiter notifying him of the opportunity in Aiken. “I get those kinds of emails all the time and I just throw them away,” Kunik said. “But this one was interesting.” For one thing, he said, Aiken offered an equestrian lifestyle that matched Helen’s love of horseback riding. Second, it has historic character similar to Punta Gorda. But, more important, he said, it was one of those rare opportunities that came at just the right moment. As it stands, Kunik is part of the Deferred Retirement Option Program, better known as DROP. That means he must retire in three years. “So I considered it, figuring, ‘It’s now or never,’” he said. But it’s a moot issue now. The 64-year-old has no plans to go anywhere. “It would take something really special for us to even consider permanently moving,” he said with a chuckle. “Punta Gorda has three more years to kick me around.”Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comCity manager staying putBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITER Find it in the CLASSIFIEDS!

PLANE | 5 NEW YORK — Thirty years ago, insurance companies had the answer to the soaring cost of caring for the elderly. Plan ahead and buy a policy that will cover your expenses. Now, there’s a new problem: Even insurers think it’s unaffordable. Life insurance rms pitched longterm care policies as the prudent way for Americans to shoulder the cost of staying in nursing homes. But those same companies have found that longterm-care policies are squeezing their prots. Earnings for life insurers slid 11 percent in the most recent quarter, according to Moody’s Investors Service, and long-term care was the chief culprit. “Insurers that sell these products lose money on them,” says Vincent Lui, a life-insurance analyst at Morningstar. “So they’re raising prices and also trying to get out of the business right and left.” Four of the ve largest providers — including Manulife and MetLife — have either scaled back their business or stopped selling new policies, according to Moody’s.

House leaders are pitching nearly $700 million in tax cuts, including a substantial cut in the taxes charged on cellphones and cable television, a three-day back to school sales tax holiday, and exempting college textbooks from sales taxes. “We want to send that money back to the kitchen tables all across this great state, because the decisions made at the kitchen table about how to spend money are always better than the decisions made by politicians far away,” said Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Fort Walton Beach Republican and main sponsor of the tax package. The House package includes more than a dozen tax breaks, ranging from sparing school booster groups from paying taxes for concessions to creating a sales tax holiday for small businesses in late November. It also includes tax breaks being sought by some of the state’s business interest groups, including a slight reduction in the tax now charged on commercial leases. The biggest part of the $690 million package is a reduction in the taxes now charged on cellphones and cable television. The proposed cut would save the average Floridian about $40 a year and would divert nearly $500 million out of the state’s main Fla.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Wednesday, March 25, 2015 NATIONAL NEWS | NATIONLeaders expect House passage of bill helping Medicare docsWASHINGTON (AP) — House leaders predicted Tuesday that their chamber will approve a bipartisan compromise this week preventing deep cuts in physicians’ Medicare fees and extending health care funds for children and low-income people. After weeks of private talks between House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, top Republicans and Democrats released nal details of their agreement on Tuesday. Though they released no gures, the package is expected to have a 10-year price tag of around $210 billion, with two-thirds of it nanced by adding to federal decits. Boehner, R-Ohio, said one major accomplishment is the measure’s increase in medical premiums paid by high-income Medicare recipients. That marks a rare though modest bipartisan agreement to retool the costly health insurance program for the elderly, which is an important selling point to conservatives usually opposed to boosting federal red ink.VA says it will relax 40-mile rule for private medical careWASHINGTON (AP) — Responding to pressure from Congress and veterans groups, the Department of Veterans Affairs is relaxing a rule that makes it hard for some veterans in rural areas to prove they live at least 40 miles from a VA health site. The change comes amid complaints from lawmakers and advocates who say the VA’s current policy has prevented thousands of veterans from taking advantage of a new law intended to allow veterans in remote areas to gain access to federally paid medical care from local doctors. The VA said it will now measure the 40-mile trip by driving miles as calculated by Google maps or other sites, rather than as the crow ies, as currently interpreted. The rule change is expected to roughly double the number of eligible veterans.Higher gas costs lift US consumer pricesWASHINGTON (AP) — A slight rise in gas costs and broad increases in other categories lifted consumer prices in February, a welcome sign after three straight months of declines that had pointed to excessively low ination. The consumer price index rose 0.2 percent, the Labor Department said Tuesday, after having sunk 0.7 percent in January — the biggest drop in six years. Gas prices have plummeted since June, dramatically lowering ination. They fell for seven straight months before rising 2.4 percent in February, the government said. Prices at the pump are still nearly 33 percent lower than a year ago. Largely as a result, consumer prices were unchanged over the 12 months that ended in February after having slipped 0.1 percent in January compared with a year earlier. Excluding gas, prices have been more stable.US new-home sales surge in FebruaryWASHINGTON (AP) — Sales of new U.S. homes in February climbed to their fastest pace in seven years, as an otherwise dormant housing market showed fresh signs of life. The Commerce Department said Tuesday that new-home sales shot up 7.8 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 539,000, the strongest performance since February 2008. January sales were revised up nearly 4 percent to a rate of 500,000. Other parts of the housing market have struggled since 2015 got off to a frigid start, despite historically low mortgage rates and a sharp, year long upswing in hiring. The shift upward in purchases of newly built homes may suggest that the job growth is spilling over to other parts of the economy. WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of uninsured U.S. residents fell by more than 11 million since President Barack Obama signed the health care overhaul ve years ago, according to a pair of reports Tuesday from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although that still would leave about 37 million people uninsured, it’s the lowest level measured in more than 15 years. The most dramatic change took place in comparing 2013 with the rst nine months of 2014. As the health care law’s major coverage expansion was taking effect, the number of uninsured people fell by 7.6 million over that time. That’s “much bigger than can possibly be explained by the economy,” said Larry Levitt of the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. “The vast majority has to be due to the Affordable Care Act.” Monday was the law’s fth anniversary, and supporters and detractors again clashed over its impact. Obama says the law in many ways is “working even better than anticipated.” House Speaker John Boehner says it amounts to a “legacy of broken promises.” The health care law offers subsidized private coverage to people who don’t have access to it on the job, as well as an expanded version of Medicaid geared to low-income adults, in states accepting it. The White House says 16 million people have gained health insurance, a considerably higher estimate than Tuesday’s ndings from CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics. The gures cited by the White House cover a longer period of time, through the beginning of this month. That includes the law’s second sign-up season. The estimate was produced by the principal policy adviser to Health and Human Services Sylvia M. Burwell. The CDC reports compared the rst nine months of 2014 with annual statistics going back as far as 1997, from the National Health Interview Survey. Among the highlights: The number of uninsured dropped from 48.6 million in 2010 to 37.2 million for the period from January to September last year. That amounted to 11.4 million fewer uninsured since the signing of the health care law. In 2014, about 27 million people said they had been without coverage for more than a year. Some 6.8 million people were covered through the health care law’s new insurance markets during July-Sept. of 2014. The most signicant coverage gains last year came among adults ages 18-64. Nearly 40 million were uninsured in 2013.

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans quietly deepened recommended budget savings from the government’s chief health care program for the poor by about $140 billion in recent weeks to offset part of the cost of higher payments to doctors who treat Medicare patients, according to ofcials familiar with the tradeoff. The maneuver comes as Republicans in both houses struggle with competing priorities, in this case a desire to stabilize what is widely viewed as a dysfunctional system of provider pay ments under Medicare, while pursuing a 10-year goal of balancing the budget. Neither budget documents nor publicly available material related to the doctor fee legislation contain any refer ence to the decision to reap greater savings from Medicaid, a federal-state program that provides health care for the low-income. Republican ofcials who described the decision did so on condition of anonymity, saying they had not been authorized to discuss it. A spokesman for the House Budget Committee, Ryan Murphy, said the 10-year plan headed for a oor vote accounts for the cost of the Medicare physician legislation, as it does for “all the costs incurred in our budget and gets us to balance within 10 years.” Unlike several other ofcials, he declined to say if the decision had been made recently to deepen the projected savings from a benet program for one population in order to pay higher costs for another program serving a difference slice of the country. At its core, the Medicare legislation would block a 21 percent cut threatened for April 1 in fees paid to doctors who treat seniors. It also would replace a 1997 law that has threatened similar reductions for years with a guaranteed modest increase in fee payments. At the same time, it would tie fees to a new formula aimed at encouraging physicians to charge based on the quality of care, not the quantity. Congress has voted well over a dozen times in the past 18 years to extend the existing law, but Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday that House Republicans “have no intentions” of passing another one. He predicted the replacement measure would pass this week, and urged the Senate to agree “as quickly as possible.” The price tag for Medicare fee legislation, which has support from Democrats and Republicans, has been pegged at about $210 billion over a decade. Of that amount, about $35 billion would be offset by raising the amount that upper-income seniors pay for their care under the program.GOP hits Medicaid to offset doc fee hikes adno=50471071 adno=50471075 adno=50471072 Thomas Quigley, M.D. Board Certified Eye Physician & Surgeon F R E E E Y E E X A M F O R N E W P A T I E N T S complete medical exam with one of our board certified eye doctors includes prescription for eyeglasses, and tests for cataracts, glaucoma and other eye diseases.

ROME (AP) — Pope Francis, who recently lamented he can’t slip out and get a pizza like he used to, finally got a pie — albeit one hand-delivered to his popemobile. Pizza maker Enzo Cacialli had a pie on hand as Francis sped by the Naples waterfront Saturday during his one-day visit to the city famous for its pizza. In a video made by a co-worker at the “Don Ernesto” pizzeria, Cacialli is seen getting close enough to the popemobile to make the delivery as the crowd behind him cheers. Cacialli, whose father made pizza for a visiting President Bill Clinton in 1994, told Naples’ Il Mattino that he used yellow tomatoes rather than red to reflect the colors of the Holy See.ODD NEWS Pope gets his pizza — albeit hand-deliveredbudget account. A cut in the tax known ofcially as the “communication services tax” is one of this year’s top priorities for Gov. Rick Scott. Scott himself rolled out a $673 million tax cut package, but House leaders aren’t embracing all of the changes he is seeking. Scott wanted another small cut in the state’s corporate income tax — which was once a key part of his -7-7” plan to turn around the state’s economy — but House leaders did not include it in their package. Gaetz said House members decided instead to offer tax breaks in targeted business areas. While the House rolled out its tax package with fanfare, Senate Republicans have remained relatively mum on what taxes they would support cutting this year. Senate President Andy Gardiner said his chamber wants to resolve other budget items before deciding on a tax cut package. Senate Republicans worry that Florida will lose more than $1 billion in federal aid now being used to help hospitals treat the poor and uninsured. The Senate has crafted a replacement program but the House has not included the extra money in its budget proposal. Right now the House and Senate proposed budgets differ by more than $4 billion in spending. “I don’t think we’re anywhere near even talking about what the number is,” Gardiner said on Tuesday. “There’s still a lot of things that have to be resolved before you can get to that point.”CELLPHONESFROM PAGE 1 has struggled under the weight of rising costs. The trends behind the industry’s troubles sound like good news outside the world of insurance. Older Americans are healthier and living longer. But that makes it difcult for the industry to turn a prot. Stays in nursing homes tend to last longer, so insurers have to pay out more in benets than they had planned. For older Americans and their families, however, there are few options besides private insurance. Medicare doesn’t cover nursing home stays except in certain cir cumstances. The Obama Administration had planned to make a longterm insurance program part of the Affordable Care Act but eventually abandoned it. Sean Dargan, an analyst at Macquarie Group, an Australiabased investment bank, expects to see more people turning to Medicaid, the government’s health insurance for the poor, to cover the costs of care. “It could really blow a hole through state budgets,” he says. “I think states and the federal government are going to need to think creatively to nd a way out of this.” For insurance companies, long-term care has proven to be a tough business. Genworth, based in Richmond, Va., has turned in losses for two straight quarters. On March 2, the company reported that it discovered errors in its accounting for funds set aside to cover long-term care claims, knocking its stock down 5 percent in a single day. Analysts say problems with these policies explain why Genworth has lost more than half its market value over the past year, plunging from $17 to a recent $7.79. “Their single biggest product is long-term care, and look at their share price,” Lui says. “It’s one trouble after another.” In an interview with The Associated Press, Tom McInerney, Genworth’s CEO, says his company has been taking steps to make long-term care insur ance a viable business, raising prices on older policies, introducing new products and throwing out their previous assumptions. “There’s clearly a very high need for these policies,” McInerney says. “Given high demand and the limited number of insurers offering it today, I think it can be a very good industry going forward.” When they began selling policies widely in the 1980s, the industry made a slew of assumptions about how long people would live, health care costs, and interest rates. Nearly all of them turned out wrong, analysts say. Take life spans. At nearly 79 years, overall life expectancy in the U.S. has never been higher, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s the biggest issue, analysts say, because it means more people who took out policies stick around to make claims, moving into nursing homes and asking insur ance companies to help cover the steep bills. The rate for staying at a nursing home has gone up an average of 4 percent every year for the last ve years, according to Genworth’s annual survey. In 2014, the median bill for a shared room topped $6,000 a month.HIKESFROM PAGE 1 center, France’s aviation authority said, deepening the mystery. While investigators searched through debris from Flight 9525 on steep and desolate slopes, families across Europe reeled with shock and grief. Sobbing relatives at both airports were led away by airport workers and crisis counselors. “The site is a picture of horror. The grief of the families and friends is immeasurable,” German Foreign Minister FrankWalter Steinmeier said after being own over the crash scene. “We must now stand together. We are united in our great grief.” It took investigators hours to reach the site, led by mountain guides to the craggy ravine in the southern French Alps, not far from the Italian border and the French Riviera. Video shot from a helicopter and aired by BFM TV showed rescuers walking in the crevices of a rocky mountainside scattered with plane parts. Photos of the crash site showed white ecks of debris across a mountain and larger airplane body sections with windows. A helicopter crew that landed briey in the area saw no signs of life, French ofcials said. “Everything is pulver ized. The largest pieces of debris are the size of a small car. No one can access the site from the ground,” Gilbert Sauvan, president of the general council, Alpes-de-HauteProvence, told The Associated Press. “This is pretty much the worst thing you can imagine,” said Bodo Klimpel, mayor of the German town of Haltern, rent with sorrow after losing 16 10th-graders and their two teachers. The White House and the airline chief said there was no sign that terrorism was involved, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged reporters not to speculate on the cause. “We still don’t know much beyond the bare information on the ight, and there should be no speculation on the cause of the crash,” she said in Berlin. “All that will be investigated thoroughly.” Lufthansa Vice President Heike Birlenbach told reporters in Barcelona that for now “we say it is an accident.” In Washington, the White House said American ofcials were in contact with their French, Spanish and German counterparts. “There is no indication of a nexus to terrorism at this time,” said U.S. National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan. Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy were to visit the site Wednesday. French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said a black box had been located at the crash site and “will be immediately investigated.” He did not say whether it was the ight data recorder or the cockpit voice recorder. The two devices — actually orange boxes designed to survive extreme heat and pressure — should provide investigators with a second-by-second timeline of the plane’s ight. The voice recorder takes audio feeds from four microphones within the cockpit and records all the conversations between the pilots, air trafc controllers as well as any noises heard in the cockpit. The ight data recorder captures 25 hours’ worth of information on the position and condition of almost every major part in a plane. Germanwings is low-cost carrier owned by Lufthansa, Germany’s biggest airline, and serves mostly European destinations. Tuesday’s crash was its rst involving passenger deaths since it began operating in 2002. The Germanwings logo, normally maroon and yellow, was blacked out on its Twitter feed.PLANEFROM PAGE 1 “normalization of our presence in Afghanistan remains the end of 2016,” Obama said. “That hasn’t changed. Our transition out of a combat role has not changed.” But he said he had decided to leave the additional U.S. troops in place this year “so we don’t have to go back, so we don’t have to respond in an emergency because terrorist activities are being launched from Afghanistan.” Administration critics worry that the troop pullout may leave Afghanistan vulnerable to a renewed insur gency. They blame the White House decision to pull all U.S. troops from Iraq in 2011 for creating conditions that led to the growth of Islamic State, the Sunni militant group that now controls about a third of Iraq. Obama made it clear that he was willing to slow the withdrawal from Afghanistan in part because of his relationship with Ghani, an American-educated technocrat who replaced Hamid Karzai, who often was harshly critical of U.S. aims and policies even as American troops were fighting in his country. The shift, Obama said, “reflects the reinvigorated partner ship with Afghanistan.” He said the goal is to make Afghanistan more secure and to prevent terrorist groups from launching attacks there. Ghani, who is making his first official trip to Washington since he took office, has used his meetings at the Pentagon and the White House to urge the administration to slow the planned troop withdrawal to help his government fend off Taliban insurgents and secure political reforms. Speaking in English at the news conference, Ghani vowed that his government will “speak truth to terror.” U.S. troops no longer engage in ground combat in Afghanistan and are mostly confined to bases as trainers and advisers. Afghan forces have suffered heavy casualties as they seek to hold ground where U.S. and coalition forces previously fought. “As we’ve drawn down,” Obama said, “they’ve stood up. They’re getting better month by month.”SLOWSFROM PAGE 1 | BRIEFS FROM TALLAHASSEEHouse panel moves school choice billTALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) — A wide-ranging bill that would allow parents more freedom to choose where their children go to school was overwhelmingly approved Tuesday by a House panel, even as some critics and educators worried the legislation is moving too quickly. The measure (HB 1145) — sponsored by Rep. Chris Sprowls, R-Palm Harbor — was approved by the House K-12 Subcommittee in an 11-2 vote, with two Democrats joining the panel’s nine Republicans in voting for the bill. It would allow parents to transfer their students to any school in the state that had not reached 90 percent of its capacity, regardless of county lines. It would also require districts to set up a process for parents to request that their children be removed from teachers’ classes. Supporters have touted the legislation as the logical extension of the state’s school-choice reform movement, while opponents have raised questions about whether the process could be orderly. Senate adopts parts of House water policyTALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) — The House’s business-friendly approach to protecting Lake Okeechobee has been added to the Senate’s plan for new water policies for the state. The Senate Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee on Tuesday unanimously approved changes to its version of the water policy bill (SB 918), which is deemed stronger by environmentalists for the state’s natural springs. The Senate proposal, which also seeks to develop a statewide trail system and increase public access to conservation lands for recreation, is more project-focused than the House plan, which was approved in a 106-9 vote on the third day of the legislative session. The water-policy proposals, while backed by many legislators, are considered separate from a voter-approved requirement to increase spending on water and land projects in the Senate and House budgets. Committee Chairman Charlie Dean, an Inverness Republican who is sponsor ing the waterpolicy bill, said his proposal is still a work in progress. “There is no perfection in this bill or anybody else’s bill,” Dean said.Senate takes pot into its own handsTALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) — Facing another legal challenge to the state’s attempt to craft a framework for a medical-marijuana industry, a Senate committee moved forward Tuesday with a measure that would jump-start the process after hearing from dozens of speakers who objected that the proposal does not go far enough. Senate Regulated Industries Chairman Rob Bradley, who was instrumental in passing a law last year that legalized non-euphoric cannabis for patients with cancer or chronic muscle spasms, is pushing a new plan that would expand the types of patients who would be eligible for the treatment. The plan also includes specics about how the Florida Department of Health would choose nurseries that can grow, process and distribute the substance.

We didn’t pay our kids for good grades, but I can’t really think of a strong argument not to pay them for success in school. You could say you shouldn’t pay them because it’s something they’re expected to do anyway. But you could also make the same point where chores around the house are concerned, too. We paid our kids to do some chores, but really the point is not about the economic value. It’s the fact that you want your kids to associate work with money. I still meet people my age and older who haven’t made that connection. Work creates money, and that’s an important thing to teach your kids. Once they’ve created some money by working, then you want to use those moments to teach them to save, spend and give wisely. You can do this around the subject of grades if you want. There’s probably a valid case to be made that getting an “A” takes a lot more work than getting a “C.” You’re certainly not obligated to pay them for work or grades, but if you don’t do some of this — and teach them the proper ways to handle the money they earn — you’ll miss out on a lot of fantastic teachable moments. — Dave Making grown-up choicesDear Dave: My husband and I are on Baby Step 2 of your plan. We’ve got our starter emergency fund of $1,000 in the bank, and we’re busy paying off credit cards and unpaid taxes from previous years. He thinks it’s okay to take trips and save up for other fun things while we’re doing this, but I disagree. I want to cut out all extra spending and pay off our debt as fast as possible. — Laura Dear Laura: It’s okay to do those things in the general philosophy of life. Unfortunately, that’s not what I teach when it comes to getting out of debt and gaining control of your nances. The reason people are successful following my plan is because I teach common sense combined with an unbridled, scorched-earth kind of intensity. Let’s take a closer look at this. You have unpaid taxes, not to mention credit card debt hanging over your heads, and he’s talking about going on a trip and saving up for toys? That’s completely irresponsible. There’s a process here. There’s an idea and a concept behind what I teach, and when you plug into it, you’re going to start moving in a positive direction. In short, behaviors have to change, Laura. The more dramatically they change, the better results you get and the faster you x things. But if you don’t plug into it, you guys are going to keep getting the same results! — Dave Follow Dave on Twitter at @DaveRamsey and on the Web at www. for grades?Dave Ramsey NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks dropped Tuesday as investors weighed company news and the latest report on consumer prices. Signs that the dollar could resume its recent surge also made investors nervous. Homebuilders bucked the trend, gaining after sales of new U.S. homes in February climbed to their fastest pace in seven years. The stock market has drifted lower for two straight days. The declines follow a rally in the market last week when Federal Reserve policymakers surprised investors by suggesting they were in no hurry to raise interest rates. Those low rates have helped power a six-year bull run for stocks. “We’re in something of a holding pattern as markets continue to digest all that’s going on,” said Kristina Hooper, U.S. investment strategist at Allianz Global Investors. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 12.92 points, or 0.6 percent, to 2,091.50 Tuesday. The Dow slipped 104.90 points, or 0.6 percent, to 18,011.14. The Nasdaq composite fell 16.25 points, or 0.3 percent, to 4,994.73. Stocks were little changed throughout the morning before drifting lower in the afternoon. The slump in stocks coincided with a rally in the dollar. The U.S. currency had started the day lower against the euro before erasing those losses. The dollar index, which measures the strength of the U.S. currency against a basket of others such as the euro and Japanese yen, has climbed 15 percent in the last six months. That rise has already weighed on the earnings of companies such as Coca-Cola and Caterpillar that rely on overseas sales for a large portion of their earnings. S&P 500 companies start reporting results for the rst quarter next month. “The dollar overall is something that everyone is watching, everyone is nervous about it, with earnings season coming up,” said JJ Kinahan, chief market strategist at TD Ameritrade.Mixed signals sink US stocks The old email bag got some relief last week but still groans at the seams. Let’s read some more general interest questions. Faithful reader John writes, “Driver Update Scanner, do I want to get into this? Apparently it comes from McAfee and I am supposed to register with passwords and other information — and I think somewhere along the line, a charge is involved. Is it legitimate?” Drivers are software packages that tell hardware such as video cards, wireless network adaptors, and keyboards how to do their jobs. Without a driver, two things happen, either the device won’t work, or Windows loads a generic driver to make the device work until the correct driver is installed. PC makers occasionally update a driver that was packaged with the PC, but generally if it isn’t broke don’t x it. Major PC manufacturers provide updated drivers on their websites if necessary, and some even arrange to make updates available with Windows Updates if it is a critical update. The drawbacks to driver update programs is that they cost money, will only verify existing drivers on the computer, and most of them run all the time for something that rarely happens, using resources that are then not available to us. To see just how out of date our drivers are with out spending a dime, open Device Manager from the Control Panel. There we nd a list of hardware on our binary buddy. Expand each category such as Display Adapters. Under the heading will be the name of the hardware. Right click on it and from the context menu that appears choose Update Driver Software. We will nd that there are no available updates for almost any of them. If there are, Windows will update that driver to the newest version at no charge. Loyal follower Rae scribes, “My new laptop is acting up, disc drive won’t open.” A recalcitrant disc drive or DVD drive door that won’t open is very common. Reasons range from dirt, to unnished recording or playback or sometimes the drive just stops working. Unfortunately, be assured that this will occur with the most important disk we have in the drive. There are several steps we can take to open the drive door before, as one client did, we take a steak knife to it. The client nally got the door broken off and the disk out, however the disk had suffered mortal steak knife wounds. An easier process would have been to open My Computer and nd the icon for the disk drive (generally drive D or E), right mouse click on it and from the context menu click on Eject. If that fails to open the drive door, look carefully with light and magnify ing glass if necessary for a tiny hole on the face of the drive door. Insert a straightened paperclip into the hole and push gently to manually release the drive door. Once open, retrieve the disk, use some compressed air to blow out dust or dirt and see if the issue is resolved.

Page 8 WIRE The Sun /Wednesday, March 25, 2015 STATE NEWS | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATEHendry monkey farm condemned by opponentsHENDRY COUNTY (News Press) — Members of the media far outnumbered activists at a Tuesday morning press conference in front of the Hendry County Courthouse. The event was to call attention to the new Bioculture monkey breeding facility near Immokalee. Independent TV journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell was among those speaking out against the new primate facility. Built on what’s called Panther Tracts, the 640-acre property is already home to Primate Products, which has oper ated there since 1990. Not one, but two new primate facilities in The Hendry Bioculture project has been in the works since at least 2012, but never received any public hearing because it’s leased from Panther Tracts, and such arrangements are covered by its original permits. Even so, activists expressed shock and indignation that residents weren’t alerted to the facility. They’re already suing the county for alleged Sunshine Law violations over another facility on the Lee/ Hendry border. “We’re not crazy animal people (but) what are they hiding?” asked Fort Myers animal activist Bobbie Henderson.Police: Man charged with killing he tried to pin on anotherCLEARWATER (AP) — Clearwater police have charged a 50-year-old man with a 2006 slaying that they say he tried to pin on someone else. Kenneth Missey is charged with rst-degree murder for allegedly shooting 64-year-old security guard Bill Williams during a robbery at a Faireld Inn. Police say the masked robber shot Williams as he tried to come to the desk clerk’s aid. They say Missey contacted detectives and Crime Stoppers after the shooting, claiming he had information that another man was the killer. Detectives say he even sent them three rounds from the gun that shot Williams and then turned over the gun itself in hopes of getting a reward. Detectives discovered, however, that the man Missey accused was in prison at the time of Williams’ slaying.Deputies: Man high on bath salts attacks fire chiefDAYTONA BEACH (AP) — Deputies say a Volusia County Fire Services battalion chief was attacked by a man who was apparently high on bath salts. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Michael Inglett was heading to the re station on Friday night when he saw a man running down the road. The man dove onto the hood of a vehicle and cracked the windshield. The chief confronted 35-year-old Richard Keefer and started to call for help. Deputies say Keefer grabbed the chief and slapped him. The chief hit Keefer in the face with his portable radio and witnesses helped him secure the man until deputies arrived. Keefer later told deputies he had taken methadone and bath salts. He remains jailed Tuesday. Jail records don’t indicate whether he’s hired an attorney.Senate OKs bill to allow guns during evacuationsTALLAHASSEE (AP) — The Florida Senate passed a bill allowing gun owners without a concealed weapon permit to take their guns along during emergency evacuations. The bill (SB 290) passed Tuesday on a 29-10 vote, with only Democrats opposing it. It allows people to carry a concealed gun without a permit if they are subject to a mandatory evacuation during a hurricane or other emergency. There would be a 48-hour time limit for the exception. Opponents argued that hurricane shelters are chaotic and stressful, and someone without training and a legal permit shouldn’t be allowed to take a gun into one. But supporters said the bill will save lives, not endanger them. Some pointed to looting in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina as a reason the bill is needed.Officer suspended for letting woman drive cruiserJACKSONVILLE (AP) — A Jacksonville police ofcer was suspended for 10 days for letting a scantily dressed woman drive his patrol car to a Hooters restaurant. The sheriff’s ofce released records involving Ofcer Irving Diaz on Monday. He was suspend ed on Feb. 27 and received a written reprimand. The Florida Times-Union reports Diaz also searched the woman’s name in a police database because she was often around his children. The internal affairs report indicates she was seen driving the patrol car at least two times. A photo taken in June also led to an internal affairs report and an admonishment for unbecoming behavior. That photo showed Diaz dressed in uniform and leaning against his patrol car while embracing a woman.

The Sun /Wednesday, March 25, 2015 WIRE Page 9 WORLD NEWS | WORLDIran says no snap inspections of nuclear sitesTEHRAN, Iran (AP) — An Iranian ofcial on Tuesday rebuked the chief of the U.N. atomic agency for demanding snap inspections of Iran’s nuclear sites, saying the request hindered efforts to reach an agreement with world powers, state TV reported. The United States and ve other world powers face an end-of-the-month deadline to reach a framework agreement with Iran on its nuclear program. Western nations suspect Tehran is pursuing a nuclear weapons capability alongside the civilian program. Iran denies such allegations, insisting its nuclear activities are entirely peaceful. Earlier this month Yukiya Amano, the head of the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency, said Tehran should agree to snap inspections to reassure the international community.Putin: More war games will comeMOSCOW (AP) — President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that a recent Russian military exercise has marked the beginning of a series of such drills this year, a show of force that comes amid a bitter strain with the West over Ukraine. Reecting the tensions, U.S. and other NATO forces staged maneuvers in the Baltics, and a convoy of U.S. troops has driven through eastern Europe in a bid to reassure the allies. Last week’s Russian maneuvers that spread from the Arctic to the Black Sea involved 80,000 troops, about 100 navy ships and more than 220 aircraft.Shiite rebels fire on protesters in Yemen, killing 6SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Shiite rebels red bullets and tear gas Tuesday to disperse thousands of protesters demanding they withdraw from a southwestern province, killing six demonstrators, wounding scores more and escalating tensions in a country on the verge of civil war. The rebels, known as Houthis, seized the capital Sanaa in September and have been advancing south alongside forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh. In recent days they have closed in on the southern port city of Aden, where the internationally recognized President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi is now based. Massive protests were held in the third largest city of Taiz — which the rebels largely seized over the weekend — and in Torba, some 60 miles away, where witnesses said the streets were lled with thick black smoke from burning tires and where protesters torched three armored vehicles.Syrian rebels launch offensive to take cityBEIRUT (AP) — Syrian rebels launched an offensive Tuesday against a major government-held city in northwestern Syria, shelling the outskirts and warning residents to remain indoors in the coming days. The target of the operation is Idlib, a city of some 165,000 people and the provincial capital of a province with the same name. Opposition ghters have controlled the countryside and towns across the province since 2012, but President Bashar Assad’s forces have managed to maintain their grip on Idlib city.Italy’s highest court to hear Knox appeal of guilty verdictROME (AP) — American Amanda Knox and her Italian ex-boy friend expect to learn their fate today when Italy’s highest court hears their appeal of their guilty verdicts in the brutal 2007 murder of Knox’s British roommate. Several outcomes are possible, including conrmation of the verdicts, a new appeals round, or even a ruling that amounts to an acquittal in the sensational case that has captivated audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. KNOXResearchers find fossil of ‘super salamander’ LONDON (AP) — Fossil remains of a previously unknown species of a crocodile-like “super salamander” that grew as long as a small car and was a top predator more than 200 million years ago have been found in southern Portugal, researchers announced Tuesday. The species grew up to 6 feet in length and lived in lakes and rivers, University of Edinburgh researchers said. The team said the species, given the name Metoposaurus algarvensis, was part of a wider group of primitive amphibians that were widespread at the time but became extinct. They are the ancestors of modern amphibians such as frogs, and are believed by paleontologists to have lived at the same time the dinosaurs began their dominance.Canada to conduct airstrikes against Islamic StateTORONTO (AP) — Canada is expanding its military mission against the Islamic State group to include airstrikes on targets in Syria, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced Tuesday. Harper told Parliament that he will not seek “the express consent” of the President Bashar Assad government for the air strikes, but will work closely with allies who have been carrying out such airstrikes against IS over Syria in recent months.Angelina Jolie undergoes further preventive surgeryLONDON (AP) — Oscarwinning actress Angelina Jolie revealed Tuesday that she has undergone more preventive surgery, having her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in hopes of reducing her risk of cancer. Writing in the New York Times, the lmmaker and philanthropist said that a recent blood test showed a possible early sign of cancer. The news came as a blow to the star, as she has already had a double mastectomy. “I went through what I imagine thousands of other women have felt,” she wrote. “I told myself to stay calm, to be strong, and that I had no reason to think I wouldn’t live to see my children grow up and to meet my grandchildren.” JOLIE TIKRIT, Iraq (AP) — The U.S.-led coalition battling the Islamic State group has begun surveillance ights over the northern Iraqi town of Tikrit, a senior coalition ofcial said Tuesday, marking the rst time the alliance has taken part in a major of fensive there that is being spearheaded by Iranianbacked Shiite militias. The ofcial said the ights and intelligence sharing began Saturday and were requested by the Iraqi government. He declined to comment on whether the coalition was carrying out airstrikes, saying he cannot discuss current or future operations. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to journalists. Up to now the offensive to take back Tikrit, Saddam Hussein’s hometown, has largely been waged by Iraqi troops and Shiite militias advised by Gen. Qassem Soleimani, commander of the elite Quds Force of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. The coalition ofcial declined to discuss whether U.S. forces were directly communicating with Iranians on the ground there. Both the U.S. and Iran view the Islamic State group as a major threat but insist they are not coordinating their actions. The U.S. had previously said it was not taking part in the Tikrit offensive because it had received no request to do so from Baghdad. The U.S.-led air campaign, launched in August, has allowed Iraqi forces to halt the IS group’s advance and claw back some of the territory it seized last summer. But the growing Iranian presence on the ground has complicated the mission, with Washington refusing to work directly with a country it views as a regional menace. The prominent role of the Shiite militias in the ght to retake Tikrit and other parts of Iraq’s Sunni heartland has meanwhile raised concerns that the offensive could deepen the country’s sectarian divide and drive Sunnis into the arms of the Islamic State group. A senior Iraqi military ofcial said the coalition is not providing airstrikes in support of the Tikrit operation, but launched airstrikes on the nearby oil renery town of Beiji on Tuesday. He added that Soleimani had just left Tikrit after providing front-line assistance and advising since the start of the operation. “He will come back if we need him to,” said the Iraqi ofcial, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he’s not authorized to brief journalists. Iran has provided military advisers and weapons to Iraqi troops and Shiite militias, and last year it carried out airstrikes near its border in Iraq’s Diyala province.Official: US-led aircraft flying over Islamic State-held Tikrit rfnt bffttt rfnt b n rfntbffttt rfntbtn r f n t f rfntbffttt rfntbtrn b f n rfntbffttt rfntbtn f rfntntbtrttnrnffr rfnt n r fnt n rfnt n tbtrttnrnffr n tbt r t tn rn ff r tbtrttnrnffr n t n t n t rfntbbrr rfntbbr rrt rf ntbbt rfnttbbbbfn t tbtfrn t rfrfnttrftbfrfrnbfftbfrnttbbbbfnttbbntfn t frf rfntbbrr brrrt rf ntb ttf ffnfff ff ntb frf nrf nrr ff rf r fr frfntbf fnfftb fntnf rfnntb frfrf f r ntb nft ntft bf r tnt fntt tt ntb ‘ n’bf nff ff n fr f r“f‘b bfr b n ‘ f‘’ ntb ’rftrtt rf rn trtn‘t ’t“ntn r rf r t”•f nt“ntt ttfnrr bf r tnt fntt tt rf rn trtn‘t ’t“ntn r rf r t”•f nt“ntt ttfnrr rfntbf fnfftb fntnf rfnntb frfrf f r ntb nft ntft ntb ‘ n’bf nff ff n ‘ f‘’ ntb ’rftrtt nfff ff ntb frf nrf nrr ff rf r fr f fr f r“f‘b bfr b n rfntbn nbtnfr r tt adno=491153

While tourism and retirees will always be important, the state is much more diversied than before the recession, according to a new report from economists at Wells Fargo. Florida is seeing job growth in transportation and logistics, technology and life science sectors. “I’m more optimistic about Florida today than any time since the 1980s. We have a more promising stream of growing industries and businesses that have grown up in Florida. The strength we see today is far more durable,” said Mark Vitner, senior economist for Wells Fargo. Industrial development has helped diversify the economy, with architectural and engineering services employment that is 9.3 percent higher than a year ago. Payrolls for computer systems design and related services grew 4.8 percent over the same period. Technology is becoming “an increasingly important driver of the state’s growth,” the economists said. The outlook is especially bright for South Florida, the report said. Financial activities and professional and business services have shown solid gains in jobs over the year. A growing population has fueled demand for housing and local goods and services. Employment is well above the pre-recession peak and shows no sign of slowing down, the economists said. South Florida’s lure as an international destination keeps tourism owing and housing demand strong. Fort Lauderdale’s economic recovery has accelerated, with employment growing 4 percent over the year, the report said. Retailers are expanding, and professional and business services look stronger. “Fort Lauderdale took a little longer to bounce back from the recession. It didn’t have as much overbuilding, but we didn’t have a huge run-up and collapse in value,” Vitner said. Palm Beach County has seen broad-based gains, with construction employment rising 6.8 percent over the year. The only weaknesses are in manufacturing, which is not substantial in the area, and local government jobs, which are falling again, the report said. The state’s job market also is much more diverse, the economists said. Sectors such as nance and government, which had been lagging in their recovery, are now growing modestly. Nonfarm employment rose 3.7 percent, as businesses and the public sector created some 285,000 net new jobs over the year. “Construction was the real standout, with hir ing surging 8.9 percent,” the report said. Still, construction accounts for just 5.2 percent of Florida’s employment base, down from 8.7 percent at the height of the housing boom and the long-run average of around 6.5 percent. Growth would have been even stronger if not for labor shortages, particularly of skilled subcontractors, the report said.Florida’s economy growing more diverseBy MARCIA HEROUX POUNDSSUN SENTINELWRITER | HEADLINE NEWS | FROM AROUND THE STATEAppeals court hears arguments over license for orca LolitaMIAMI (AP) — Groups that want a captive whale removed from Miami Seaquarium asked federal appeals judges to send their lawsuit against the tourist attraction and the U.S. Department of Agriculture back to district court. The case concerns a captive orca named Lolita that has lived at the Seaquarium since 1970. Last year, a federal judge in Miami dismissed the groups’ lawsuit. The groups allege that the tank that holds Lolita violates USDA standards for its care under the Animal Welfare Act.St. Pete Police to hand out Rays ticketsST. PETERSBURG (AP) — Police have a new tool in their crime-ghting arsenal: Tampa Bay Rays tickets. St. Petersburg Police Chief Tony Holloway announced Monday the Park, Walk, and Cheer program, which will allow cops to reward positive behavior with four tickets to a Rays game. The tickets will be awarded through a small cardboard voucher that looks like a baseball card for Rays’ pitcher Chris Archer. It is good for four baseline box tickets to any game that is not sold out, except three blackout dates. Ofcers might also give the vouchers to victims of crime.

SPORTSWednesday, March 25, 2015 @ S unCoastSports SunCoastSportsNow .com Sports Editor: Mark Lawrence INDEX | Lottery 2 | Golf 2 | NBA 2 | NHL 2 | Baseball 3 | College basketball 4 | Scoreboard 5 | NFL 6 | Preps 6 For the second time in a little less than three months, North Port High School has hired the football coach it believes can build the football program. Once again, the school turned to someone familiar with the area. North Port announced Tuesday it had hired Brian Hatler to take over the football program. Hatler has 23 years experience coaching varsity football, including being the defensive coordinator for the Venice team that won a state title in 2000. “Football in Southwest Florida is exciting high school football,” the 48-year-old Hatler said. “I lived in the area from 1995 to 2002, I know the football down here. It’s very appealing. It’s a great opportunity.” Hatler replaces Jared Powers, who was hired on Dec. 27 but resigned abruptly Feb. 17. In taking the job, Hatler will become the Bobcats’ fourth varsity football coach in the past 13 months and fth since 2012. The challenges will be the same Powers had been set to face — build a program at a school that has never posted a ve-win season in its 13 years of varsity football. North Port went 1-9 last year under thencoach Larry Detwiler. It will be Hatler’s rst head coaching job. After leaving Venice, Hatler coached for several years at Arvada West High School in Colorado under former Port Charlotte head coach Casey Coons. Stability is goal for new coach By ROB SHORESPORTS WRITER PREP FOOTBALL: North PortHatler returns to area, becomes North Port’s fourth coach in 13 monthsHATLER | 6When parents and the community see we’re doing things correctly and that we care about kids, they’ll stay.BRIAN HATLER New North Port football coach on the need to keep players in the program “ the community see “ the community see we’re doing things “ we’re doing things correctly and that “ correctly and that Glazer family stays upbeatBy RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESPHOENIX — They’re OK with Jameis Winston’s past. They’re confident Marcus Mariota has a bright future. The Glazer family, which owns the Bucs, has signed off on both quarterbacks who are waiting for a coronation as the team’s No. 1 pick. Despite a 2-14 record in the first season under coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jason Licht, co-chairman Joel Glazer has lost not faith in either man to make “one of the most important decisions” in franchise history. All that said, they had better not mess this one up. “Absolutely, this is critical, one of the most important decisions we may make in a long time,” Glazer said Tuesday at the NFL owners meeting. “But fundamentally, we believe in letting Lovie and Jason do all their ground work, and their staffs, come to their conclusions, discuss it with us, talk about their reasoning and as long as it makes sense, we’re supportive. But at the end of the day, whatever decision we make, I see us all being on the same page, agreeing and moving forward. “No question, having the first pick in the draft is a huge decision for the organization and a huge opportunity for the Buccaneers doing everything we can to get that choice right is going to be critical.” Glazer gave his annual state of the Bucs address during an interview with the Tampa Bay Times. What led to the 2-14 season? Obviously, last year was disappointing. It’s not the type of season you ever want to repeat again. When you look back, you can try to point to a lot of different factors, but the bottom line is we were 2-14. You know, there was a little adversity with the offensive coordinator’s position was difficult, no NFL: Tampa Bay BUCS | 6PORT CHARLOTTE — Port Charlotte High School’s boys tennis team is headed into this week’s District 3A-11 tournament on a high note after defeating district rival North Fort Myers 6-1 on Tuesday. The Pirates (4-3) won both doubles matches and four of the ve singles matches. J.P. Coogan won the No. 1 singles match for Port Charlotte, beating Ryan Mazon 6-0, 6-3. Coogan also teamed with Parker Murno to topple Mazon and Nick Hulfeld 8-0 in a pro-set No.1 doubles match. Murno at No. 2 singles, Matt Amontree at No. 3 singles and Derek Botts at No. 5 singles also won matches for Port Charlotte. Ethan Katz and Amontree won the No. 2 doubles match 8-6 over Peter Simon and Gin Zaliausakas. The Red Knights’ only victory was at No. 4 singles where Simon edged Matt McGee 3-6, 6-3, 11-9. “We’re looking pretty good right now,” Pirates boys coach Scott Toney said. “Fort Myers is pretty good and probably is the team favorite. But Ida Baker, Charlotte and us can be right in there. Matt (Amontree) has been looking pretty good for us and has improved a lot.”Pirates steamroll Red Knights in finaleBy GARY BROWNSUN CORRESPONDENT BOYS TENNIS: Port Charlotte 6, North Fort Myers 1 UP NEXTPort Charlotte: District 3A-11 tourney, at Charlotte H.S., Thursday, 8 a.m.INSIDEPort Charlotte girls fall to North Fort Myers, Page 6SUN PHOTO BY JOHN KERSTENLemon Bay third baseman Alec Bigness tags Hardee’s Hayden Lindsey, who was attempting to go from rst to third on an errant pick-o throw during Tuesday’s game.

ENGLEWOOD — Lemon Bay High School took advantage of sloppy elding and pitching by Hardee County to break a fourgame losing streak with an 11-7 victory against the Wildcats in a District 5A-11 game Tuesday. The Manta Rays capitalized on 12 walks issued by Hardee pitchers and three Wildcat errors to earn their rst district win. “It feels good to come out on the winning side,” Lemon Bay coach Casey Hanrahan said. “Ryan Conroy pitched a really good game for six innings. We only struck out four times and committed one error. Putting the ball in play and getting on base, that’s how you score runs, and that’s what we’re hoping to do from here on out.” Lemon Bay jumped on top in the rst inning when Conroy was hit by a pitch, went to second on a passed ball, took third on Jaryd Clary’s singled Lemon Bay earns first district winBy BRUCE ROBINSSUN CORRESPONDENT PREP BASEBALL: Lemon Bay 11, Hardee 7Mantas pull away in wild affairSUN PHOTO BY JOHN KERSTENLemon Bay’s Ryan Conroy delivers a pitch against Hardee’s Seth McGee during Tuesday’s game in Englewood.

PORT CHARLOTTE — Projected No. 3 starter Nathan Karns made the best of working on the Rays’ off day, throwing 29 pitches, including several rst-pitch curveballs, over two innings (seven outs) in a Class A minor-league game. “I knew they were going to be swinging early and often, so it kind of allowed me to play with some of the pitches that I need to work on, knowing they’re aggressive and making sure (the pitches) are effective,” Karns said. Karns, who threw 20 strikes while allowing one hit and one walk and striking out three, starts again on Saturday. That outing is scheduled for 75 pitches. Chris Archer and Jake Odorizzi are scheduled to throw approximately 90 pitches in minor-league games that day. Jake McGee, recovering from left elbow surgery, and Everett Teaford, prepping for a potential Friday start, threw bullpen sessions on Tuesday. Cash noted how sharp McGee, aiming for an early May return, was: “It doesn’t appear like anything is hindering him.” Medical matters: Cash said infielder Nick Franklin, who strained his left oblique in batting practice Monday, definitely will not be ready to start the season. Steven Souza Jr., who left Monday’s game after being hit by a pitch on the right arm, came in to hit Tuesday and looked fine. Rene Rivera, sidelined a few days due to left calf tightness, is scheduled to play today. Brandon Guyer, sidelined most recently with a mild ankle sprain, will get DH at-bats in a minor-league game today, joined by infielder Logan Forsythe, who will play first base. Alex Cobb (forearm tendinitis) was seen by Dr. Koco Eaton and is expected to start throwing in the next few days.

Karns threw 29 pitches in a minor league game on Tuesday. SAVE $$$$$$Shop theClassifieds JUPITER — Allen Craig bolstered his bid for more playing time in Boston’s crowded outeld, hitting a three-run double in helping the Red Sox build a lead the Miami Marlins would overcome with an eight-run eighth inning for a 9-4 victory Monday. Jordany Valdespin hit a two-run triple and Jeff Baker doubled in two in the Marlins’ big inning. Miami managed only one hit until the eighth. Playing in the spring training park he once called home with the St. Louis Cardinals, Craig’s double off Tom Koehler capped a four-run third inning for the Red Sox. Locked in a six-player battle for one of the ve roster spots the Red Sox intend to use for outelders, Craig is hitting .278 with seven RBI in Grapefruit League play. Craig came to Boston via a 2014 trade with St. Louis, which shares the Roger Dean Stadium complex with Miami. Rockies 7, White Sox 6: In Glendale, Ariz., Jose Abreu connected for his first spring homer, but White Sox left fielder Melky Cabrera committed two errors in Colorado’s six-run fifth inning and the Rockies went on to win. Cabrera misplayed Matt McBride’s single, allowing the Rockies to tie it at 5. Then he dropped Rafael Ynoa’s fly ball near the line for a two-base error as McBride scored. Orioles 9, Pirates 2: In Bradenton, Andrew McCutchen was hitless in two at-bats in his return to the Pirates’ lineup, and Steve Pearce homered against his former team to lead Baltimore. McCutchen, the 2013 NL MVP, was out 10 days with lower body soreness. He has a .143 batting average in six spring training games. Orioles starter Ubaldo Jiminez had his best outing of spring, striking out three and allowing four hits in five scoreless innings. Astros 4, Mets 3: In Port St. Lucie, David Wright hit his third home run of spring training, a two-run drive in the New York Mets’ loss. Wright has three home runs and nine RBIs in his past seven games. Mets starter Dillon Gee allowed four hits in four scoreless innings and struck out one. Houston’s Collin McHugh gave up three runs — two earned — two hits in five innings with seven strikeouts. Twins 6, Blue Jays 5: In Fort Myers, Torii Hunter hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer off Chad Jenkins in the seventh inning for Minnesota. It was the first homer this spring for the 39-year-old Hunter. Before the game, the Twins announced a $20 million, four-year contract with second baseman Brian Dozier, who homered on the first pitch he saw. Athletics 14, Cubs 2: In Mesa, Ariz., Cubs prospect Kris Bryant hit his ninth home run of the spring, but Oakland roughed up Edwin Jackson. Jackson allowed nine hits — six for extra bases — eight runs in 1 innings. Phillies 6, Braves 3: In Kissimmee, Ryan Howard hit his third home run of the spring and Darin Ruff also connected for Philadelphia. Ruff followed Howard in the third inning with another homer off Atlanta starter Mike Foltynewicz, who allowed three runs in 2 innings. Rangers 15, Angels 8: In Surprise, Ariz., Albert Pujols homered and Mike Trout hit an RBI triple, but Texas tagged Los Angeles closer Huston Street for six runs. Trout, last year’s AL MVP, leads the Cactus League with a .462 batting average after extending his hitting streak to nine games. Padres 6, Mariners 4: In Peoria, Ariz., Matt Kemp legged out a triple two pitches before Justin Upton hit his third home run of the spring. Kemp’s liner to the gap off Mariners starter J.A. Happ was followed by Upton’s drive to left-center in the third inning. Upton doubled and scored an inning earlier. Kemp later singled and stole second.

The agreement includes a $28 million signing bonus, Genske said. Olivera, said to be 29, was on the Cuban team that won the silver medal at the 2008 Olympics. He also played for his country at the 2009 World Baseball Classic, in which he hit .313 and played second base. He will have some company as he joins an organization that already has a strong Cuban presence with All-Star outelder Yasiel Puig, inelder Alex Guerrero and shortstop Erisbel Arruebarrena, who was recently optioned to the Dodgers’ minor league camp. Olivera’s deal will cause a $4,173,333 increase in this year’s luxury tax for the Dodgers, who pay at a 40 percent rate at the payroll amount over $189 million. Opening day decision doesn’t bother Harvey: Matt Harvey said he understands the New York Mets’ rationale in not starting him on opening day. The Mets announced Monday that 41-year-old Bartolo Colon will start the April 6 opener at Washington and NL Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom will start the home opener April 13 against Philadelphia. Harvey is returning from elbow ligament-replacement surgery that has sidelined him since August 2013. He is scheduled to start the third game of the opening series and the second home game, which likely will draw far more fans to Citi Field with Harvey on the mound that it otherwise would. Yankees prospect recovers from concussion: New York Yankees prospect Jose Pirela is feeling much better two days after sustaining a concussion when he crashed into the center field wall on a play that ended up an inside-the-park home run for the Mets’ Juan Lagares. Pirela met with reporters in the Yankees dugout before Tuesday night’s game with Detroit and said he has no dizziness. “The only thing I have is still a little bit of soreness in my neck and in my back, my entire back,” Pirela said through a translator. Around the nation: The Los Angeles Dodgers will rest pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu for two weeks to see if it helps ease the discomfort in his left shoulder. A contrast MRI in Los Angeles showed no change from the one he took in 2012. Masahiro Tanaka is lined up to start the Yankees’ opener against Toronto, which would end CC Sabathia’s streak of six consec utive opening-day starts for New York. Sabathia is coming back from season-ending knee surgery in July. Alex Gonzalez, a well-regarded Texas prospect bidding for a spot in the Rangers’ starting rotation, was assigned to the club’s minor league camp. Gonzalez was the 23rd pick in the 2013 amateur draft.Los Angeles signs CubanBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MLB NOTEBOOKYanks’ prospect recovers from a concussion Rays plan to retire Zimmer’s jersey ST. PETERSBURG (AP) — Tampa Bay will honor former longtime senior adviser Don Zimmer by retiring uniform No. 66 before its April 6 season opener against Baltimore. Zimmer spent 11 years with the Rays, from 2004-14. It was his longest stint in his 66 years with 14 major league teams as a player, coach, manager or adviser. Zimmer was 83 when he died on June 4. Three days later, the Rays and Seattle Mariners wore Zimmer’s No. 23 Brooklyn Dodgers jersey in a pregame tribute at Tropicana Field. He began his career as an infielder with the Dodgers in 1954. The Rays have retired only two other numbers. Wade Boggs’ No. 12 was retired in 1999, and Jackie Robinson’s No. 42 was retired by all teams in 1997.

Gonzaga beat Iowa 87-68 to advance to the Sweet 16.SPOKANE, Wash. — Gonzaga coach Mark Few’s locker room handstand prompted a discussion with Kyle Wiltjer after the star forward tweeted video of the stunt that went viral this week. “What we do in the locker room, we had to re-explain to Kyle, stays in the locker room,” Few said Tuesday as second-seeded Gonzaga prepared to play 11th seed UCLA in the Sweet 16 on Friday. But the handstand, so uncharacteristic of the reserved and dignied Few, also served a serious purpose: To help the Zags loosen up a bit. Expectations have been high for this team, and Few wanted to make sure the Zags aren’t crushed by them. “The theme of this team is to celebrate wins,” Few said. “There are so many expectations that they are supposed to do this that it was becoming like a job.” “We want to take time to celebrate wins,” Few said. Celebrate the Zags did after dismantling Iowa 87-68 on Sunday to reach the Sweet 16 for the rst time since 2009. Wiltjer’s tweet starts with guard Eric McClellan doing a backip in the locker room. Then Few does a brief handstand while the team cheers. “We aren’t done yet, fellas!” Few shouts. McClellan insisted this edition of the Bulldogs is having fun. “We never let the moment get too big,” McClellan said. Few keeps Bulldogs looseBy NICHOLAS K. GERANIOSASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE BASKETBALL: GonzagaHandstand in locker room goes viral COLLEGE BASKETBALLReady, set, scramble! OMAHA, Neb. — In the 2008 national championship, with Kansas trailing Memphis by three and 10.8 seconds left in the game, coach Bill Self called for his team to run a play called “Chop.” The play, designed to provide multiple scoring options in moments of desperation, began with Sherron Collins dribbling up the court. Veering to his right, Collins handed off to Mario Chalmers at the top of the key, and Chalmers took the rst of his options: He shot the 3-pointer. It splashed through the net to force overtime. Kansas went on to win the title, and that perfectly executed play became known as “Mario’s Miracle.” And if anybody thinks calling it a miracle is hyperbole, well, chances are they haven’t been watching as teams ounder through the nal minutes in this year’s NCAA Tournament. Turnovers, missed shots, poor coaching and worse execution. Just call it organized chaos, late-game blunders that have nevertheless produced some memorable nishes. “First of all, the reason you struggle in games is because the other team’s pretty doggone good,” explained North Carolina coach Roy Williams, whose team survived two close games to reach the Sweet 16. “The other thing is the attention, the pressure — they’re still 18-, 19-, 20-year-old kids. I mean, they’re not going to get it right.” Indeed, many of today’s brightest stars are freshmen and sophomore, players unaccustomed to the game’s biggest stage. That dearth of veteran leaders, several coaches have argued, is also one of the big reasons that that scoring continued its downward trend this season. Another reason for the late-game ubs: Lowand mid-majors are often trying to upset a heavyweight, and the talent gap becomes more pronounced when the game is on the line. That appeared to be the case last Thursday, when UC-Irvine had Louisville on the ropes. The Anteaters were inbounding the ball near midcourt, trailing 57-55 with about 6 seconds left. Alex Young was promptly stripped by the Cardinals’ Terry Rozier, a turnover 40 feet from the hoop that prevented the Big West champs from even attempting a tying shot. “We had a quick play lined up and unfortunately I lost the ball,” Young said. “We couldn’t get a timeout, and it just happens. It’s basketball.” Speaking of timeouts, Northeastern burned through its allotment in the second half against Notre Dame, leaving coach Bill Coen unable to set up a nal play with the Huskies trailing by two in the closing seconds. Instead of getting a tying shot off, Quincy Ford coughed up the ball, and the Fighting Irish added a couple of free throws to seal the victory. Asked about his timeout dilemma, Coen replied: “I wish we’d had one left.”By DAVE SKRETTAASSOCIATED PRESSAt end of tourney games, the chaos is usually by designAP PHOTOKansas’ Mario Chalmers celebrates after hitting a 3-pointer to take the game into overtime against Memphis during the 2008 national championship game in San Antonio. The tying shot came from a play called “Chop.” COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP Hurricanes rally, reach NIT semifinalsRICHMOND, Va. — Sheldon McClellan gave Miami its rst lead of the game with 1:02 remaining and the Hurricanes rallied from 18 points down to beat Richmond 63-61 on Tuesday to advance to the NIT seminals. The Spiders led most of the game and used a pair of 3-pointers to spread out their lead to 36-18 early in the second half. But a streak of Richmond fouls and mostly accurate free throw shooting allowed the Hurricanes to slowly close the gap as Richmond’s offense sputtered in the face of a withering Miami press. McClellan scored seven straight points, including a game-tying 3-pointer with 2:03 left, and Davon Reed added two free throws for a 6155 lead with 26 seconds left. McClellan led Miami (24-12) with 16 points. Davon Reed had 10 points and 12 rebounds as the Hurricanes dominated the glass 47-32, with 17 offensive boards. Richmond (21-14) was led by Terry Allen with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Howland named new Mississippi State coach: In Starkville, Miss., Ben Howland’s coaching career made the unlikely journey from Westwood to Starkville. The 57-year-old was introduced as Mississippi State’s new men’s basketball coach on the floor at Humphrey Coliseum. The former UCLA coach — who led the Bruins to three straight Final Fours from 2006 to 2008 — takes over a program with only a fraction of the national prestige, though the Bulldogs did go to a Final Four in 1996. Several hundred fans rang their cowbells in celebration when Howland was introduced, hoping for a quick revival for a program that has fallen to an afterthought in the Southeastern Conference. Sun Devils fire coach after 9 seasons: In Tempe, Ariz., Arizona State fired coach Herb Sendek after nine seasons as coach. Sendek led the Sun Devils to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in five years in 2013-14, but the team took a step back this season. The Sun Devils finished 18-16 to miss the NCAA Tournament and lost their second-round NIT game to Richmond on Sunday. Sendek had a short meeting with Arizona State athletic director Ray Anderson before the decision was made. Sendek went 159-137 at Arizona State with two NCAA Tournament appearances. He previously coached at North Carolina State and Miami (Ohio). Dalton State wins NAIA DI title: In Kansas City, Mo., Jordan Bowling had 18 points and seven rebounds, Anthony Hilliard added 14 points and Dalton State (Ga.) College cruised to a 71-53 victory over Westmont (Calif.) College in the NAIA national championship game on Tuesday. Hilliard hit a deep 3-pointer as time expired in the first half to give Dalton State a 16-point lead.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Appearing by Internet hookup from a courtroom in Los Angeles, Sharper entered his plea before Clark County District Court Judge Douglas Herndon, who scheduled sentencing for June 25. A plea agreement calls for Sharper to serve 38 months to eight years in prison for the Nevada conviction, but at the same time as sentences from California, Arizona and Louisiana. On Monday, the 39-year-old Sharper pleaded guilty to sexual assault in Arizona — again using an Internet hookup — and no contest in Los Angeles to raping two women he drugged after meeting them in a West Hollywood bar. In Fall River, Mass., a cousin of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez took the stand in his murder trial after being ordered to testify, giving him a big smile and telling the prosecutor she couldn’t remember details of what happened in the days surrounding the killing.BOXINGMayweather and Pacquiao purses soar: The richest fight in boxing history is getting even richer. And that’s before the first ticket has even been sold. New estimates show Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s payoff for fighting Manny Pacquiao could easily be $180 million, up substantially from earlier predictions of $120 million. Pacquiao gets the short end of the purse, but even that is expected to be well over $100 million by the time everything is tallied up.CYCLINGWADA says Armstrong’s attempt at reduced ban ‘almost too late’: In Lausanna, Switzerland, Lance Armstrong has not done enough to get his life ban reduced and his latest bid for rehabilitation is coming too late, the director general of the World Anti-Doping Agency said. In an interview with The Associated Press, David Howman said the disgraced American cyclist did not seize the opportunities he had to come forward with the details of his doping past. “If he satisfied the criteria to go forward and ask for suspension of his ban, the criteria will be carefully looked at, but so far he has not,” Howman said on the sidelines of a WADA symposium in Lausanne. “There is no consideration being given to it.”ATHLETICSTop IAAF official accused of offering voters Rolex watches: The IAAF’s ethics commission won’t say whether it is investigating allegations that a member of the world athletics body’s top decision-making council and a candidate for vice president tried to bribe voters with Rolex watches.

Page 6 SP The Sun /Wednesday, March 25, 2015 He served as offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator and special teams coordinator at different times during that stint. When Coons stepped down three years ago, Hatler was offered the head coaching job, which he passed on. But he thinks this is the right opportunity for him. “I’m ready to advance my career and take the next step in coaching,” Hatler said. Hatler did his due diligence prior to accepting the job, talking to observers around the area about the state of the North Port program he would walk into. “From the outside, the perception is there’s some lack of continuity and some disarray, to be honest with you,” he said. “I think there were some other factors. But I’m very comfortable with the administration.” He will be formally introduced to the community at a “Meet The Coach” event tonight in the North Port High School Cafeteria at 6 p.m. Incoming athletic director Cary Willgren, who was part of the committee that zeroed in on Hatler, along with principal David Jones and assistant principal Ron Corso, likes the skillset the new coach will bring. “The thing that stood out the most is he’s a per son with integrity,” said Willgren, who formally takes over as the school’s athletic director this summer. “He cares about the school, a full-program type of guy. He’ll be on our (teaching) staff. Some of his questions were about teaching and that stands out.” When Hatler meets players and parents tonight at North Port, he’s aware some might already be looking to transfer to a more stable program and he might have to pitch them to stay. “In the day and age we live in, we always do that,” Hatler said. “We have to represent the program in a positive basis. When parents and the community see we’re doing things correctly and that we care about kids, they’ll stay.” Willgren said it was important to get the hire right, especially after Powers’ departure left the program with more uncertainty. “I could tell at the time that kids are fragile and they were told certain things by certain people, then ve or six weeks later, it was not that way,” he said. “The kids were looking for someone to look up to, and we’ve got the right guy, now.”Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comHATLERFROM PAGE 1 PHOENIX — NFL owners shot down nearly every video replay proposal brought to their meetings Tuesday, while approving six safety rule changes. Of the 13 replay alter ations proposed, including extending the number of coaches’ challenges and letting them challenge all ofciating calls, the only one passed will allow game ofcials to use replay for clock issues at the end of a half, game or overtime if more than 1 second remains. The owners approved a proposal for stopping play when a medical adviser believes a player is unstable and should be taken off the eld. They also approved rules prohibiting players from pushing teammates on the line of scrimmage when the opponent is punting; eliminating all peel-back blocks and chop blocks by running backs outside the tackle box; and extending defenseless player protection during an interception return. Tabled was a move to place cameras on all boundary lines (sidelines, goal lines and end lines) while the league further researches such a project. Browns expect Manziel on field in April: Cleveland coach Mike Pettine said he expects quarterback Johnny Manziel to take part in the team’s practices next month after leaving rehab. Pettine said the team has received “good” feedback about Manziel, who entered a treatment facility on Jan. 28 for an undisclosed problem. Pettine said he does not know when Manziel will be discharged from rehab, but he expects the young QB to return to football immediately. The Browns will work out on April 20. Pettine also said the Browns would not be candidates for HBO’s annual series “Hard Knocks,” which provides an inside look at an NFL team’s training camp. Peterson’s agent draws line in sand: Adrian Peterson’s agent, Ben Dogra, said in an interview he believes a return to Minnesota this season is not in the “best interest” of the standout running back. General manager Rick Spielman has told Dogra the team doesn’t plan to release Peterson, who turned 30 on Saturday. The Vikings have leverage with Peterson’s contract, which covers the next three years with a $12.75 million salary for 2015. However, none of the remaining money on the deal is guaranteed. Player signings: Chicago agreed to a one-year contract with former San Francisco defensive end Ray McDonald. The 49ers cut McDonald in December after a woman accused him of sexually assaulting her following a night of drinking in which she injured her head in a fall by his swimming pool. Minnesota agreed to terms on contracts with linebacker Casey Matthews and safety Taylor Mays. Matthews played the past four seasons with Philadelphia, starting 15 of 65 games for the Eagles. The former fourth-round draft pick from Oregon had a career-high 62 tackles last season. He’s the younger brother of Green Bay Packers standout Clay Matthews. Mays was a second-round draft pick out of USC by San Francisco in 2010 and traded by the 49ers the following year to the Cincinnati.Owners approve one of 13 replay expansion ideas NFL NOTEBOOKBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSPHOENIX — The Super Bowl turns 50 this year and the NFL is planning a golden yearlong celebration. The league unveiled plans that include sending a gold-colored football to the high school of every player or head coach who played in the big game. The football will have the player’s name and the name of the high school. In some cases, the player will go to the school to present the ball in person. As part of its ‘On the Fifty’ celebration, the league will make the number 50 on the 50-yard line in gold for all games and teams will host Super Bowl reunions. In addition to the Vince Lombardi Trophy, which is still silver, there are big, Tiffany-crafted numbers 5-0 that will go to the Super Bowl winner. The numbers are cast in bronze, plated in 18-karat gold and weigh nearly 33 pounds. “There’s going to be gold infused to everything this year,” NFL Network analyst and former Super Bowl MVP Kurt Warner said. “ Nothing says NFL better than the Super Bowl, so this year is going to really commemorate the last 49 leading up to No. 50.” The game will be played Feb. 5 at Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara, California. There will be 19 games between past Super Bowl opponents, beginning with the Hall of Fame Game when the Minnesota Vikings play the Pittsburgh Steelers in a rematch of Super Bowl IX. And for one year only, the league has thrown out the Roman numerals. The next one will be Super Bowl 50, plain and simple. The NFL didn’t like the looks of the Roman numeral alternative of Super Bowl L.Super Bowl gets yearlong run-up NFL: Super BowlBy BOB BAUMASSOCIATED PRESS Matt LePoint pitched a complete game and the Pirates took the lead for good with three runs in the top of the rst in a 6-1 victory over Ida Baker (13-4, 3-3 District 6A-11).

Batting second in the order on Tuesday, she drove a 1-0 pitch over the wall in right-center for her first homer of the season. With the victory, Lemon Bay splits the season series with Hardee. The Manta Rays lost an extra-inning game at Hardee. Shaffer’s homer made a winner of Bridget Ruhl.

Conroy settled after that and allowed one hit over the next four innings. Meanwhile, the Mantas scored twice in the fourth inning without the benet of a hit: three walks, a throwing error and a sacrice y. Lemon Bay added insurance in the bottom of the sixth. Matt Intihar and Victor Mellor led off with singles, moved up on a passed ball and scored on Clary’s single to center. “It was an interesting game to watch. There was a lot of action going on,” said Hanrahan. “I’m hoping this is a sign of good things to come for the remainder of the season.”LEMON BAY 11, HARDEE 7Hardee 041 000 2 — 7 10 3 Lemon Bay 150 203 X — 11 8 1 Seth McGee, Hayden Lindsey (2), Kyle Choate (6) and Alex Rodri-guez.

WILDFROM PAGE 1 question about it. And when you look back, there were a lot of games that were actually pretty close that didn’t go our way. But it’s in the past. Our goal is to never be there again and that’s what we’re focused on. We have great confidence in Lovie and Jason. Do you still have faith in Smith and Licht as decision-makers? We look at everything as live and learn. So if there was an experience that happened and certain things didn’t work out, to us it’s more important to look into why it didn’t work out and make sure we don’t repeat the errors of the past. That’s an area where I’ve spent a lot of time with Lovie and Jason and there is no doubt, they’re two people who would, A, admit a mistake if there was a mistake and move on rather than dig a deeper hole. And B, work to find out why this thing happened and correct it going forward. You’ve met Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota. Are you comfortable with Jameis’ background and can one of these players be the face of your franchise? “With anybody we’re looking to draft, we do an extensive amount of work on their background, history and all that. We spent time with Jameis and Marcus and went into everything into their background. After everything we’ve done and where we’re at, we’re comfortable where Jameis is at, we’re comfortable with Marcus or whoever else it could be.” After Jason and Lovie present their recommendation, what happens next? At the end of the day, whatever decision we make, I see us all being on the same page, agreeing and moving forward.BUCSFROM PAGE 1 adno=50478962 TEE TIMES 888-663-2420 Visit us at SunnybreezeGolf.comM a r c h S p e c i a l s March Specials EARLY BIRD before 8am & TWILIGHT after 2pm 18 Holes $30 + Tax 9 Holes $20 + Tax Includes Green Fee & Cart

March 25 31, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 3 I’m back! You probably never noticed my absence because everyone who helped with the section did an amazing job while I was home with my new little one.

Editor Readers and writers need each other. That is the premise behind the fourth annual Venice Book Fair and Writers Festival coming up Saturday in Centennial Park in downtown Venice. Sponsored by Gulf Coast Community Foundation and the Venice Gondolier Sun , the festival is for book lovers — those who create the books and those who read the books. Readers can meet the authors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the 40 or so tents that will ll up the area around the gazebo in Centennial Park. There will be children’s books, travel books, mysteries, thrillers, self-help books, ghost stories and more. For writers and would-be writers, there will be a variety of presentations by experts in all areas of publishing. Best-selling author David Hagberg will talk about story development at 10 a.m. in the KMI clubhouse. Historical ction writer Clarissa Thomasson will address the research and other aspects involved in the creation of historical ction at an afternoon session in the Pinkerton Theatre at Venice Theatre. The Mystery Writers of America will present a panel on that genre and there will be chances to pitch stories to agents, to learn about various types of publishing and more. Whatever one’s interest in books is likely to be covered at this unique event. Ten dollars pays for admission to as many of the seminars as one can schedule. The rest of the festival is free. Naturally, there will be plenty of books for sale. To learn more, visit On Sunday, the Venice Young Professionals will hold its Smoothie King 5K run at 8 a.m. at Maxine Barritt Park in Venice. On Tuesday, the Happy Time Band will perform a free concert in Centennial Park at 3 p.m. Bring lawn chairs or blankets to bid adieu to March. ‘Like’ us on SunCoastLetsGoYour weekly guide to entertainment, travel and arts in Southwest Florida.

March 25 31, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 7 COVER STORYThe Rotary Club of Englewood and the Englewood Youth Foundation are sponsoring a juried art show Saturday and Sunday on W. Dearborn Street in Englewood. “We support local, nonprot organizations, and all proceeds benet the Englewood Rotary Youth Foundation and local organizations such as the Boy Scouts, YMCA, Kids’ Needs, Englewood Sailing Club, Englewood Elementary School and Lemon Bay High. Last year the Club awarded over $50,000 in scholar ships and program support to Englewood youth. As always, we will be asking for a $2 donation to the Englewood Youth Foundation at both Dearborn Street entrances,“ said event chairperson Carol Peterson. More than 100 artists are expected to exhibit their metal, wood or glass sculptures; watercolor, acrylic, oil or pastel paintings; gold, silver or gemstone jew elry; pottery and ceramics; photography; and mixed media. Ribbons and cash awards will be presented for Best of Show in both 2-D and 3-D work. Awards in other categories will be presented as well. This year’s featured artist is Debra Purdy, who hasn’t missed a show since the festival began 34 years ago. She designed a copper “Repousse” that was photo graphed for this year’s poster of a swimming turtle that’s entitled “Homeward Bound-Englewood Beach.” “I’m a self-taught artist that uses nature as my inspiration,” Purdy said. For the turtle she used a copper roong sheet and marked her design with black marker before drawing the picture using a jewelers’ torch. Debra and her husband, Robert, became collaborating artists in 1990. A number of their crystal, driftwood and copper sculptures are available for sale online or at the Fishery Restaurant in Placida. Painter Linda Soderquist integrates the beauty of natural surroundings into her art, and her tropical watercolor paintings depict landscapes, seascapes and wildlife portraits. After receiving a B.A. in ne arts and a master’s degree in mathematics, Soderquist taught elementary school. Now retired from teaching, she continues to mentor youth and has illustrated three student activity books on Florida turtles and tortoises. Watercolor painting is her specialty. Josephina Espinosa, who was born in Cali, Colombia in South America, specializes in fusion glass art. She creates dozens of one-of-a-kind stained glass panels and windows and teaches at the Visual Arts Center in Venice. Her works have been exhibited in Southwest Florida venues and private collections abroad. Painter Fran Fink began painting at the age of 30 in Michigan, where her oil paintings were featured in a two-artist show. After relocating to Florida, she chose watercolors and was the subject of a one-artist show at the Mitchell Gallery at the Englewood Art Center. In 2010-11, she exhibited and won awards for her watercol or paintings at the Visual Arts Center in Punta Gorda. In addition to featuring artists, Rotary Club members will be preparing barbecued pulled pork, hot dogs and sausages and oering cold beverages for sale in their huge tent. A number of vendors will also be oering tasty treats in booths along Dearborn Street. Acoustic guitarist Don Thomas will entertain festival attendees with original music designed to inspire, heal and relax. His latest CDs “Falling Leaves,” “Summer Symphony” and “In the Garden” will be available for sale. Shoppers are invited to browse through unique shops and restaurants in Historic Olde Englewood Village. The two-day Annual Fine Arts Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 28 and 29.

8 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V March 25 31, 2015 UPCOMING EVENTSFairy houses, small structures where fairies live in harmony with nature, may be practically invisible, but visitors to this year’s Fairy House Festival at Historic Spanish Point in Osprey will discover dozens of them tucked amid the natural landscape throughout their site. According to Spanish Point Outreach Coordinator for the Gulf Coast Heritage Association, Jane Glennan, about 1,000 visitors attended last year’s festival, the rst of its kind in Southwest Florida. “Spanish Point was transformed into an enchant ed fairyland last year. Dozens of fairy houses were brought in or built on-site, and two $100 cash prizes were awarded, one for the Best in Show Adult entry and one for the Best in Show Child Entry. I think that adults had more fun than the kids, and we expect to receive more entries this year. All we ask is for individuals or teams to construct their fairy house with only natural materials and place it on a base so that it may be easily transported,” she said. A list of materials may include sticks, bark, dry grasses, pebbles, shells, feathers, seaweed, pine cones or nuts. Participants are advised not to harm anything that is still living such as ferns, mosses, or owers. In addition to the fairy house competition, visitors will enjoy musical performances, storytelling, enchanted garden walks, games, bubbles, crafts and balloon sculpture. Students from Waldorf School will participate. Costumes are optional, but a Fairies in Flight Costume Parade will no doubt add to the fun. Entertainment will include a puppet show with Sandi Sylver and musical performances by Fairy Elaine Silver. Author and artist Judi Light, will read from her ‘Magical World of Twigshire, a Feel Good Book for All Ages.” A recipe book entitled “A Fairy Home Companion of Delicious Recipes for Fairies and Those Who Believe in Them” will be oered for sale with all proceeds going to the preservation of the fairy habitat at Historic Spanish Point. “My good friend Virginia Souza from Copyz and Graphix provided the artwork for the book and designed a coloring book for children,” added Glennan. Craft vendors include: Hippi Hoopers who custom make hoola hoops, Essentially for You natural oils, Elements of Earth, Fairy Houses and Fairy Things by Yolanda Garcia, Vitorine’s Boutique, Michele Dolce Fairy Houses, Veronica Ostuni Jewelry, and All my Twigs by Sue and Ralph Arden. This year’s Fairy House Festival will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 28 and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 29. Admission is free to members and children 5 and under. Adult tickets cost $12. Senior tickets are $10 and children 6 to 12 pay $5. Historic Spanish Point, where nature lovers may explore and experience Florida’s past, is located at 337 N. Tamiami Trail, Osprey. Guests enter at the Entrance Cottage, where an attendant will give directions to on-site parking. Self-guided tours begin at the gazebo, and guests are free to walk to the Palmer Water Garden, the Prehistoric Burial Mound, the authentically reconstructed Webb Packing house, Mary’s Chapel, Pioneer Cemetery, Duchene Lawn and Classic Portal that features two rows of exotic palms, Lychee Field where fruit-producing lychee trees were once grown, and the Buttery Garden, an area that showcases larval and nectar plants for monarch, zebra longwing, swallowtails and other butteries. All owering plants in the garden are nectar plants.

12 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V March 25 31, 2015 Upbeat focuses on pop and rock music of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. By Tom Lovasko, Sun Correspondent Top of Billboard Chart1966 – “The Ballad of the Green Berets” by SSgt. Barry Sadler 1976 – “December 1963 (Oh, What a Night)” by the Four Seasons 1986 – “These Dreams” by HeartBeatle Bits In 1957, after the Quarrymen performed at St. Peter’s Woolton Parish Church, John Lennon met 15-year-old Paul McCartney and soon after, invited him to join the Quarrymen, who evolved into the Beatles. The original album title of “Abbey Road” was “Everest,” after it was suggested to photograph the Beatles in front of Mt. Everest (instead of the now famous street). “Something” was the only Beatles song written by George Harrison that was released as a single. There are 18 Beatles songs with the name of a woman in the title. “Eleanor Rigby” was the most popular. The 1965 Beatles’ lm “Help!” featured the fab four running around several exotic locations including the Bahamas, Stonehenge, the Alps and Salzburg. Side two of the Beatles’ “Abbey Road” features seven mini-songs woven together and produced to transition seamlessly from “Sun King” to “The End.” These were all pieces of previously recorded or discarded songs used for this clever creation. “All My Loving” was the rst Beatles song performed live in America (on the Ed Sullivan Show, 1964).Last week, the trivia question asked: Singer Roberta Flack had two giant hits, very mellow songs with long titles, in the s: “Killing Me Softly With His Song” and this one. Can you name it?Answer: “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”. Our weekly winners are: Steve Thomas and Carol Finkel of Gulf Cove. Geri Neely and Rosemarie Cipra of Venice.

March 25 31, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 13 UPCOMING EVENTS‘I’m A Stranger Here Myself” opened on March 17 to an eager audience in the Keating Theatre. Original creator and star of the production, Mark Nadler, speaks to the excitement of extending this critically acclaimed production stating, “So far we’ve had sold-out houses. That’s very impressive to me. The audiences here have been so attentive and smart and curious. What a joy to play for these people. I am positively over the moon that I’m going to have more chances to bring this show to Sarasota audiences.” Critics have raved about “I’m A Stranger Here Myself.” The New York Times calls it, “Broadly historical and deeply personal.” The New York Post calls it “Illuminating.” The Wall Street Journal describes it as a “Moving account of the Weimar era.” Artistic Director Richard Hopkins speaks to the extension of this unique production stating, “I’m delighted that ‘I’m A Stranger Here Myself’ is extending. That’s a pretty good vote of condence from the audience.” With elements that fall in both genres of cabaret and mainstage musical, this production was chosen specically for FST’s Stage III program. Hopkins explains this decision further stating, “I included the show in Stage III programming rather than cabaret for a variety of reasons. First of all, I wanted the show to have a larger platform than our tiny cabaret stages. This particular ‘cabaret show’ has a sweep and technical demand that is hard to achieve on FST’s cabaret stages. Additionally, this show is not for everyone, and that is what marks our Stage III series — good theater with a specic audience in mind. This show deals with a narrow slice of history known as the ‘Weimar Era’ in Germany, which was the period in between the two great World Wars. This was an era of artistic renaissance and tremendous, previously unheard of freedoms in Germany. The era was so free that the march of the Nazis was incomprehensible. It reminds me of the era we enjoy in America today. This is a period of artistic expansion, and greater freedoms than we have ever known in our country. Yet we are surrounded by extremist voices that hate our way of life and seek to destroy it. We revel in our new-found freedoms. Will our reveling drown out the march of our enemies?” Join Nadler as he explores questions like this in “I’m A Stranger Here Myself” now playing through April 4, in FST’s Keating Theatre. Tickets range from $36 to $39.

March 25 31, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 15 UPCOMING EVENTSAfter nearly sold-out runs of “Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story” and “Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins,” Venice Theatre is preparing its next MainStage oering, a popular Ken Ludwig farce about golf. “The Fox on the Fairway” is directed by Peter Ivanov and will open Tuesday, March 31 with performances through Sunday, April 19. The shows begin at 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $28 for adults, $15 for college students, $13 for children and are on sale now at the theater’s box oce located at 140 W. Tampa Ave. in Venice, online at www. or by phone at 941-488-1115. Gulf Coast Community Foundation has generously sponsored the production. In a community that boasts a large number of golf courses, the theater expects another box oce hole-in-one with “Fox on the Fairway.” Aside from the relatable topic, the show features some of the theater’s favorite performers and a script written by the man dubbed “the reigning king of American farce.” Ken Ludwig, winner of two Laurence Olivier Awards and three Tony Award Nominations, is also known for “Leading Ladies,” “Moon over Bualo” and “Lend Me a Tenor.” Although Fox on the Fairway is the type of comedy that might appeal more to audiences than critics, it has received its share of positive reviews. The Washington City Paper said, “It’s a grand slam! A slam dunk! A Dunkin’ Donut hole! A hole in one! [The Fox on the Fairway] hums like a well-oiled machine but retains its human soul.” The Washington Examiner raved, “Ken Ludwig has a wicked sense of comedic anarchy, giving his characters such zany idiosyncrasies that they soar to dizzying heights!” And from the Alexandria Gazette: “There’s some thing magical about the sound of explosive laughter in a theater. That is the kind of magic oered with Ken Ludwig’s The Fox on the Fairway.” In his forward to the script, Ludwig writes about farce as a genre and explains, “When a complex story ticks along without missing a beat, then ts together perfectly at the end like a Chinese puzzle box, we leave the theater feeling exhilarated. The experience might be described as catharsis through laughter.” Venice Theatre invites audiences to spend an exhilarating evening or afternoon with the crazy cast of characters at the Quail Valley Country Club in this charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man’s eternal love aair with — golf. Tickets for The Fox on the Fairway and all Venice Theatre shows and events through June 2015 are available at the box oce at 941-488-1115 or online at Subscriptions for the 2015-2016 season are also on sale.

March 25 31, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 17 ROAD TRIPU.S. presidents are not the only folks drawn to Boca Grande. The Presidents Bush have vacationed there but so have sports gures, movers and shakers in various industries and day-trippers from surrounding communities. Lighthouse fans visit the Boca Grande Lighthouse and Museum, while others check out the various island eateries, to see if the tarpon are jumping or to bicycle the length of the island. Some visitors arrive by boat as day-trippers on sightseeing cruises from Fishermen’s Village Punta Gorda, but most day-trippers arrive by car from Suncoast and other locations within a few hours of its barrier island location on the southern tip of the Cape Haze Peninsula. On the island’s southern end is Boca Grande Pass, which teems with tarpon and is the site of an annual tarpon shing tournament, billed as the “World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament,” which will be June 4-6 this year. For more information, visit Beachgoers will nd 7 miles of white sand beaches. Day-trippers are usually fascinated with the lack of trac lights, billboards, fast-food chains and high rises in the historic village of Boca Grande. Instead there are shady streets covered completely by giant oaks, ower-covered fences, picture-perfect historic homes, art galleries and other specialty shops plus a variety of dining establish ments. Seafood could not be much fresher, for the local restaurants deal directly with local shermen. Island history dates to the Calusa Indians who lived in the area some 5,000 years ago. They lived along the coast up to and including Historic Spanish Point in Sarasota County, and all but disappeared after being infected with diseases brought by European explorers in the 1600s and 1700s. When phosphate was discovered in the area of the Peace River in 1885, Boca Grande became a major deep water port. As the town developed, wealthy sportsmen discovered the world-class tarpon shing and a rail line was built to transport phosphate. The town and its port boomed until the 1970s, when the area’s phosphate industry ended. When the rail line was no longer needed, the depot was restored and now is the site of the Loose Caboose Restaurant and several shops and oces. Other restaurants include the Pink Elephant (run by the Gasparilla Inn but not on inn property) on Bayou Avenue, PJ’s Seagrille and Doln Cove on Park Avenue and Eagle Grille & Miller’s Dockside on Harbor Drive. For an especially festive meal, dine at the Gasparilla Inn. Reservations strongly suggested during season and jackets are required for gentlemen at dinner during the social season (Dec. 20-April 5). There are a variety of overnight packages at the inn, with and without golf, tennis and/or spa. For more informa tion, visit Many visitors enjoy biking around the island. Bring your own or rent one for the day. One of the main routes is along the old railroad right of way, part of Florida’s Rails-to-Trails project. The lighthouse museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. A $1 donation is suggested. The Royal Palm Players perform through May. For more information, call 941-964-2670.

18 Let’s Go! E/N/C/V March 25 31, 2015 DINING OUT S UE W ADE Let’s Go Correspondent St. Lucia islanders who say “Goin’ on the lime” mean “Going partying with friends.” And the place to go on the lime in the year 2000 wasn’t a big resort; it was Shamrocks Pub on Rodney Bay. As a big wooden hall built like a ship, with its back wall open to the bay, it wasn’t real pretty. But it was the place to go if you meant to party until dawn. It held 400 revelers, 11 waitsta, ve bartenders and lots of limes. Resort discos had only a handful of people rattling around be cause everyone was at Shamrocks. The joke went that you never knew who you’d bump into there. It could be somebody you went to high school with. St. Lucian chef Tony DuBoulay and wife, Deb, ran Shamrocks restaurant then. Now the party is on in Venice, where they and Deb’s daughter, Julie, operate Suncoast Caf at Venice Municipal Airport. And you never know who you’ll bump into there either — from the governor of Florida to former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, just o their private jets. Delphine Bonk was once a trick rider with Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, and married a bronc buster. Now called “Mother,” she greets everybody at the caf and keeps them in line like a wrangler. Delphine’s smiling daughter, co-owner Deb DuBoulay, explains her own role, “I keep the front of the house from killing the back, and vice versa.” How this diverse crew came together at Suncoast Caf is even more entertaining than the long-running party they’re throwing. A culinary-school-trained chef whose mom taught him to kill his rst chicken, Tony cooked his way through Carnival cruises, a Rhine River ferry, West Indian container ships, Sandals resort, and half a dozen top Venice-area restaurants. A divorced travel agent with grown kids, Deb could go wherever she wanted. When she got a chance to manage a resort in St. Lucia, she leaped. The hurricanedamaged resort never opened, but by that time, she and Tony had met and taken over Shamrocks. That was around Sept. 11, 2001, when the direction of their lives changed. “It changed a lot of things for a lot of people, espe cially when it came to travel,” says Deb. Tourism dried up completely on St. Lucia, and Shamrocks closed its doors after 80 years on the lime. Tony and Deb briey tried Michigan, but the cold drove them back to Venice, to be near mother Delphine and away from the snow. “I cannot do cold!” Tony moans. In 2010, they discovered the restaurant at Venice Airport and set up shop. “Because it’s an airport, it opened up our world. We aren’t just a little restaurant somewhere,” said Deb. The caf is little, though, with an open kitchen where two pros — Tony and sous chef Victoria Hidalgo — ply a 48-inch at top and two fryers which somehow serve more than 200 plates a day. Customers marvel, “You two move so fast, I don’t know how you do it.” Kids beg their parents, “Let’s go watch Chef Tony!” Early on, Tony and Deb learned from and befriended one of the area’s wellknown old-Florida showmen. Dennis Kirk, owner of the Nav-a-Gator in Port Charlotte, dropped in on opening day to leave some promotional material. “What the heck is this for?” protested Deb. “I’m not advertising somebody else’s restaurant!” Dennis took her under his genial wing and shared the local wisdom. “It’s not about me against you. It’s about all the restaurants together, because we all need to survive.” Know a restaurant or bar with a good story?

March 25 31, 2015 E/N/C/V Let’s Go! 19 DINING OUTParaiso in Spanish means paradise, and that’s exactly the feeling that Erica and Fernando Pina want to convey to customers who dine at Paraiso Mexican Grille and Bar. “For us, food is a passion, and operating our own restaurant is quite an adventure,” said Erica. “For over three years we've been serving up tacos and Mexican treats from Nando’s Taqueria, a food truck. Now with the help of our mentors and co-owners, Susan and David Wean, and a wonderful sta, we are able to manage both Nando’s and Paraiso.” This arrangement works both ways according to Susan. “David and I were searching for a tenant without much success until he remembered about once renting a vacant lot to Nando’s Taqueria where, in his opinion, they served the best tacos in town. We approached Erica and Fernando about starting a Mexican restaurant with a promise that we’d be there until the restaurant was up and running,” said Susan. “Now, after just three months, they have denitely found their zone, and we are less involved. However, having Sundays o is important for the Pinas, so David and I ll in, allowing them to enjoy special time with family.” Paraiso is unique in that they provide a full bar, not just beer and wine. Expert bartender Lauri Cutting has been bartending for years in the Englewood area and loves preparing tropical drinks, especially margaritas served in 12 oz. (regular) or 16.5 oz. (grande) special glasses. She encourages customers to build their own “ritas.” Other choices include tropi cal drinks such as Frozen Chi Chi or strawberry coladas, Mai Tai cocktails, or a concoction called Tropical Itch that comes with a back scratcher for the customer to take home. “We oer Happy Hour everyday from 3 to 6 p.m., and specials include our popular buy one house margarita or domestic draft beer and get one free with a coupon,” said Cutting. “Our appetizers are awesome, espe cially our nachos supreme — beef or chicken over a bed of homemade tortilla chips, topped with lettuce, Pico de Gallo, sour cream and Queso cheese dip. It’s not on the regular menu, but we oer a ‘Golfer Special’ of hot wings, jalapeno poppers and chicken quesadillas with a pitcher of Bud Lite or Yuengling beer.” “Our daily specials are listed on the outside easel,” said Erica. “Lunch is served between 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a soup-of-the-day special and an assortment of tacos, burritos, fajitas, carnitas and taco salads. All plates include refried beans and rice. Dinner specialties are all cooked to order. My favorite is a low-carb option called Molcajete, a mixed grill of carne asada, chicken, carnitas, jalapenos, onions and chorizo that is served in a heated mocajete with queso fresco, salsa, lime and a choice of charro beans or soup of the day.” Christian Saenc creates tasty desserts that include an served with sweet Mexican custard, fried ice cream, and The Impossible, a delectable layered red velvet cake with creamy Mexican custard. Paraiso, located at 2639 Placida Road, Englewood, is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. They oer front outside pet-friendly dining and serve a kids’ menu to children 12 and under.
