THE WIRE PAGE 1AND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000Last week’s column featured two readers’ suggestion that we no longer publish editorial cartoons. Many of you responded that although you frequently disagreed with the cartoons, they should remain rmly in your paper. “Please don’t discontinue the (editorial) cartoons. I love political car toons! Although I’m ultra-liberal, I think it is so important to poke a stick at the inated, outof-touch and plain stupid politicos. I don’t agree with much of what I read but reading and seeing the other side helps me to try on their shoes and think. I even enjoy the bombastic tirades some of your readers send. Archie Bunker is alive and well!” JS “After reading your column in today’s paper, may I add my two cents worth of opinion concerning your ‘beyond stupid’ publishing of political comics? I enjoy them — even when they disagree with my political views — and I would ask that you not change them. Sometimes they make me laugh, sometimes they make me feel indignant, and sometimes they bring tears to my eyes — but I always look for them to see what some creative mind has imagined to parody the happenings of the day.” RB “When I nd myself talking to the newspaper, it is time to write a letter. “What you seem to propose, that is to end editorial cartoons because they upset people, is essentially to support what happened in Paris when extremists killed journalists because the killers did not agree that opposing (their) ideas should ever be printed. Is that what you are suggesting? I hope not, but it seems to be what your critics in today’s Inbox are suggesting. “The contentious attitudes in our country require, in my opinion, printing more diverse opinions and cartoons, emphasizing that they are all ‘American.’ We are not a homogeneous nation, and yet we are all Americans. This is the point which a newspaper could and should promote, relentlessly. Regardless of the political or cultural opinion, it is still coming from a fellow citizen. “Those who have different opinions are not your enemies. This crazy demonizing must stop. As you may note, I have not said which set of opinions I ‘agree’ with. In fact, I agree with the idea of a free press, so that everyone can see that diversity of thought, opinion, religion, race, gender, orientation, age, etc. is American. Do you agree? I hope so.” DC “I am a snowbird and the northern city I come from has a lousy newspaper. One of the things I look forward to when we head south is reading a decent paper. I like just about everything about your newspaper. You provide a lot of information about the community and great editorials, allowing both sides of the political spectrum to express opinions. “I think you do a great job. Yes, sometimes the political cartoons go too far, but that’s what they are supposed to do. I hope you don’t let a few naysayers change the way you do things.” DC “I have a thought I want to share with you. Why not solicit readers for their ideas on political cartoons? Ron Bates could translate the ideas into cartoons. “I can’t draw, but I often visualize cartoons I would like to see. My guess is that there are many readers who do the same.” BS We are going to work on getting more local cartoons, BS, and always appreciate any reader suggestions for cartoon ideas.

Charlotte County is showing improvement but trails its neighbors in most categories, according to a new county health rankings report. Information compiled by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin’s annual County Health Rankings & Roadmaps shows Sarasota County moved up two notches from 2014 to sixth in the state this year for best overall health outcomes, the end result of a patient’s health care. For length of life, Sarasota had a one-point bump to 14th and climbed from fourth to third in health factors like smoking, obesity, access to exercise, sexually transmitted diseases, etc. “We are pleased with the modest gains that our county has made in the rankings, and we continuously strive to identify new opportunities to expand the scope of collaborations to foster healthy environments and healthy lifestyles,” said DOH-Sarasota Health Ofcer/Administrator Chuck Henry, who also serves as the director for Sarasota County Health and Human Services, in a statement Wednesday. Another factor, Sarasota County Health Department spokeswoman Dianne Shipley said, is cooperation between various county departments. Essential to that effort, Shipley said, A healthy showingBy CLINTON BURTONSARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR HEALTHY | 6 A hometown advantage means a lot in any sport. Just ask any professional ballplayer at the Charlotte Sports Park this spring. They’ll tell you it means a lot. The same goes for professional boxing, and Danny Lozano knows it. For the rst time since his debut into the professional side of the sport, the WBO Latino super yweight champion will battle to defend his title on what is essentially his home soil on Friday night at the Turner-Agri Civic Center in Arcadia. He will square off against David Carmona (18-2), a young prospect from Mexico. Lozano was born 20 minutes from where the center of the ring will be. He will be ghting in front of family, friends, fans and television. “It took a long time to get back to this area,” said Lozano, 25. “A lot of things happen in professional boxing. You can’t always pick where you want to ght. It’s going to be something I’m going to remember.” Just 14 ghts into his chosen career, Lozano sports a record of 13-1. But what stands out most about Lozano is his knockout power. Of those 13 wins, 10 failed to go the distance — the young prospect known as “Alacran” would much rather go home early than have to punch in extra time when he’s at work. As for his one loss? Well, he’s worked on a few things since then. “This is a tough business. You have to be patient. You learn from every ght.” Lozano said. “I’ve had to go to Georgia to ght. I’ve fought in Mexico. But there’s nothing like ghting in front of your own people. I’d always like to ght at home, but you don’t always get that choice.” The last time “Alacran” fought in the area was in 2008 at the Charlotte County Fairgrounds. It was his pro debut. “It’s nice to come full circle,” said Lozano, who collected 100 victories and a Golden Gloves championship as an amateur. Lozano will be joined by gym stablemates Toribio A full circleBy LEE ANDERSONSTAFF WRITERBOXING | 6CHARLOTTE COUNTY — School Board members are considering restoring freshman sports after pleas from parents. Charlotte County Public Schools lost its freshman sports teams in the 2008-2009 school year, said spokesman Mike Riley. April Prestipino, assistant super intendent of student services, asked School Board members at a recent workshop to consider restoring freshman sports at Charlotte, Port Charlotte and Lemon Bay high schools. She presented a cost structure for the upcoming school year regarding restoring freshman football, boys basketball, girls basketball, and girls volleyball. The analysis found it would cost around $30,000 to supplement the salaries of 13 coaches for the restoration of these freshman sports. The overall cost to the schools for equipment, transportation, referees and other miscellaneous costs is estimated to be about $80,000. “I brought it forward so early because we actually have to move forward with the football schedule now,” Prestipino said. School Board members decided not to move forward because of uncer tainty about next year’s budget at a workshop on March 17, but some are reconsidering after parents pleaded they do so at the School Board meeting later that evening. “If we could get it done in some way where there’s no nancial impact on the district, that would change the primary factor that was working against it,” School Board Chairman Lee Swift said.Parents push for freshman sportsBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITERSPORTS | 6 DavidDUNNRANKINPRESIDENT AND PUBLISHERPUBLISHER’S INBOXLozano has hometown advantage in boxing ring PHOTOS PROVIDEDDanny Lozano will defend his WBO Latino super yweight champi onship on what is essentially his home soil on Friday night at the Turner-Agri Civic Center in Arcadia.

He’s 78 now. He hasn’t forgotten. He sat in a conference room Tuesday at Florida SouthWestern State College Charlotte Campus. His wife of 53 years, Anita, was with him. So were his memories, still dressed in clothes tattered by the hands of Nazis. He was preparing to make a presentation to help the college commemorate Holocaust Memorial Week. He has been telling of his experiences in the ghetto of Borszczow, Poland, now part of Ukraine, for 10 years. His wife, who is from Greece, is also a Holocaust survivor. She doesn’t talk about her experiences. “The memories are too painful for her,” he said. But Max does. He believes what he does is important because, “We’re dying out very quickly. By speaking to these youngsters, I hope something will stick.” Life was harsh in the ghetto. About 3,000 Jews were forced to live in an area of about four square blocks. They were permitted to go into the market to buy food once a day for about an hour. Gold and clothes were the only currency accepted — if the Jews possessed either. World War II was in full blast, and the Nazis would come knocking systematically, killing some of the Jews, and sending others to death or work camps. When word came down that they planned to close down the ghetto — in other words, cleanse it of Jews — his father begged a Christian woman to hide them. Max, his father and his mother escaped the ghetto “at night and very quietly.” They hid in a bunker beneath the Christian woman’s barn for 10 months with the town doctor and his daughter. Food and water were lowered in buckets. They dug latrines in a tunnel that connected the bunker to the house. The bunker was about 5 feet high, not enough for a man to stand upright. They all shared a large bed. They spent their time telling stories, hoping not to be discovered by the Nazis, and, well, just surviving. They did survive. So did his grandfather, uncle and aunt, who paid a Ukrainian man to hide them in their barn. “They were the only others in my family to survive,” Max said. After the Russians liberated Borszczow in July 1944, the Weisglasses made their way to Poland proper, then to West Germany. Later, they sailed to Canada. Max spent time in Israel, where he met his wife, and then moved on to Houston. He and Anita have been in Punta Gorda for 19 years. “I don’t have a number on my arm, but I really carry something in my soul,” Max said. He then went out and spent 40 minutes showing his scars to an auditorium crowded with community members and faculty and students from the college, the collegiate high school and Charlotte High School. “There are less and less survivors,” he told them. “Eventually, there will be none. I’m telling you about my experiences so you can pass it on and squelch the whispers that it didn’t happen. You can tell them it did happen. You met a survivor, and you believe him, and it will never happen to them.” As a post-presentation question-and-answer session was coming to a close, the Charlotte High students began ling out of the auditorium to return to school. He called out to them: “Remember. You met me. Remember.”Giving a voice to Holocaust victimsBy RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTO BY RUSTY PRAYMax Weisglass stands with his wife Anita outside the auditorium at Florida SouthWestern State College Charlotte Campus in Punta Gorda. “I don’t have a number on my arm, but I really carry something in my soul,” said Weinglass, a Holocaust survivor who spoke to students Tuesday.

The Sun /Thursday, March 26, 2015 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT — The inaugural North Port Jazz Festival this weekend will showcase both professional and local student talents, as well as several college-level bands. Sponsored by WENG Radio of Englewood (1530 AM/107.5 FM) and the North Port High School Band Boosters, the event is one that organizers hope will become an annual affair. NPHS bands director Owen Bradley said this is the rst time the school has held a jazz fest. “We are trying to get this off the ground this year to make it a big annual event, but, as you know, everything is difcult to get started the rst time out,” he said in an email. “We envision this being a big event in the future.” Guy Wheman of WENG, himself a former high school band director, was surprised similar festivals weren’t common here. “In Ohio, my son was in band, and he attended the Lakeland Jazz Fest with Lakeland Community College. ... When I got to Florida, there seemed to be a gap of that kind of outlet for the kids, and I thought we needed one of them down here. (Owen) Bradley and I connected last fall,” Wheman said. “It’s not a competition. Kids get up there and perform, and the professionals interact with them onstage.” Six student bands are taking part — two jazz bands from NPHS, two from Lemon Bay, the Woodland Middle School jazz band and the Lucky 7 Jazz Band, composed of six LBHS students and one from Charlotte High School who play jazz, swing, blues and funk. More school bands — from Manatee County, Sarasota and DeSoto County high schools, and even from Vero Beach, Fla. — originally were on the program, but Wheman said various spring break schedules interfered. The music will start at 7 p.m. Friday at the North Port Performing Arts Center, with a concert featuring The Herb Bruce Combo and the State College of Florida Big Band. “They’re just going to blow it out of the park,” Wheman said of the SCF band. “The sound will be fantastic and, for a keynote concert, that’s what you want — something to blow the socks off people.” The fest continues at 9 a.m. Saturday. Each band will have 10 minutes to set up, play for about 15 minutes, then interact with the professionals before the next band takes the stage. “I know what it did for my son playing drums, and I know what it did to my kids in ... jazz band,” Wheman said of the opportunity to speak with professional musicians. “They just walk up to them right on the stage and talk to them. It’s really fun.” Tanner Farnsworth, drummer for Lucky 7, said the band formed because all the members wanted to play more. Their rst gig was outside on a sidewalk at a Vineland Elementary School fun run, but they now play at least twice a week around Englewood, and have standing gigs at restaurants such as Flounders and Ricaltini’s. The members, who range in age from 14 to 18, joined because they just love the sound. Keyboardist Nate Bellmore digs funk music, and has 30-odd funk CDs in his car because “it’s fun, and it’s different,” he said. For guitarist Nick Madonna, it’s because jazz was invented in America, but is loved all over the world. “Over in Japan, there are huge festivals. They love jazz,” Nick said. The group is still rening their set, but know they’ll play their “funked up” version of Miles Davis’ “Freddie Freeloader.” “It’s a standard. We changed the rhythms and stuff, and kids dance to it,” Tanner said, adding while they play a lot of Big Band — Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman — “kids are listening to the older stuff, and they’re asking (about it).” “I think all of us want to be critiqued,” Tanner said about what they’re looking forward to most about being part of the festival. “Down in Englewood, it’s not a big music scene. Right now, we can say we’re the best in town, but the minute you leave (there’s lots of competition). And I think it’s going to be nice to watch (other bands).” Wheman said both Friday night and Saturday night’s concerts will be broadcast live over WENG. “It’s a throwback to live radio,” he said. “This is the way radio is supposed to be.” Plans are already underway for next year’s event, which will take place in February to avoid spring break conicts.Email: annek@sun-herald.comNorth Port Jazz Festival kicks off Friday nightBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER PHOTO PROVIDEDLucky 7 is one of the groups that will play at this weekend’s North Port Jazz Festival.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, March 26, 2015 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS VENICE — Two Venice residents were arrested on several charges, including burglary and battery, on Tuesday after reportedly breaking into a Venice home and attacking and threatening three victims. Frankie Damiano, 53, of the 3200 block of Meadow Run Drive, and Joshua Heistand, 22, of the 400 block of Pelican Road, were arrested around midnight Tuesday for an altercation that happened at the victims’ residence earlier in the night, a Sarasota County Sheriff’s Ofce report states. Shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday, the report states that Damiano and Heistand came to the Venice home with three other people and accused one of the victims, a 21-year-old woman, of stealing money from them earlier that evening. According to the report, the 50-year-old woman who answered the door — the mother of the victim who was accused of stealing the money — shut the door on Damiano, Heistand and the three others. The report states that’s when Damiano and Heistand went to the side of the house and entered through an unlocked side door to try and find the 21-year-old. The daughter said Damiano rushed into the kitchen of the residence through the garage and began punching her multiple times in the face. Authorities said the victim had slight bruising on the left side of her face. The mother said she ran into the kitchen area where she saw the fight happening and tried to intervene, according to the report. The mother said when she tried to help her daughter, Damiano reportedly began attacking the mother as well. The report states that a 75-year-old man entered the room to try and help the other two victims — his daughter and granddaughter — but he said that Damiano hit him in the groin. Authorities said all the victims told them that Heistand then took the man’s cane and said, “I’m going to kill you.” The mother said after she was able to call the police both Damiano and Heistand fled the residence. Damiano is charged with battery on a person 65 years old or older, burglary with assault or battery, and two counts of battery. She is being held at the Sarasota County Jail on $22,500 bond. Heistand is charged with grand theft, aggravated battery on a person 65 years old or older, and unarmed burglary of an occupied dwelling. He was additionally charged with possession of marijuana after being arrested and telling a detective while in custody that he “possibly had contraband on him.” Heistand is being held at the Sarasota County Jail on $43,000 bond.

Nancy Detert, R-Venice, will con tinue to represent Florida on the Southern Regional Education Board. Detert, of Venice, represents Florida’s 28th District and is vice chairwoman of the Senate Education Pre-K-12 Committee. The Southern Regional Education Board includes the governor and four gubernatorial appointees from each member state, including at least one state legislator and one educator, according to the SREB website. “It’s basically an education think tank made up of 16 southern region states,” Detert said Wednesday. Members work together to look for best practices in education, from working with the community to testing. “We bring back a lot of good ideas,” she said. “We see how Florida compares to other states, and how we can improve. It’s really a great committee, and I’m proud to be reappointed.” Detert’s term started Wednesday, and ends June 30, 2018.Email: cburton@sun-herald.comDetert reappointed to regional education boardBy CLINTON BURTONSARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR DETERTPORT CHARLOTTE — Some jobs should be left to the experts. A 61-year-old woman was rushed to Fawcett Memorial Hospital after inhaling chemicals Tuesday afternoon because a man tried to fumigate the house they were in. “This was not a professional extermination company,” according to Charlotte County Fire/ EMS spokeswoman Dee Hawkins-Garland. She said the do-it-yourselfer apparently bought some sort of bug-killing chemical and tried to disperse it throughout the house using an air compressor. There were three people and no pets inside at the time of the attempted fumigation. Only the older woman inhaled enough chemicals to be affected, but HawkinsGarland said the patient suffered from “respiratory difculty” and was in “serious” condition. The county’s hazmat team responded to the home on the 22100 block of Midway Boulevard around 2:15 p.m. The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Ofce helped to shut down the street for a little while so the hazmat crew could ventilate the structure safely. “Charlotte County Fire and EMS reminds residents, when using any type of chemicals, to make sure the manufacturer’s instructions for the use of the product are followed closely,” Hawkins-Garland said.

She added CHS has people who would volunteer to coach, so the district would not have to pay anything. She is condent it can get done. Maureen Guarino said her older son was two weeks into freshman basketball practice when it was cut, and it was devastating to him. Now, her younger son is entering CHS, and he wants to play freshman football and basketball. She started an online petition, “Bring Back Freshmen Sports in Charlotte County Schools,” earlier this year, which so far has 380 signatures. Although there is a limited number of spots for freshmen to play junior varsity or varsity sports, Guarino estimates creating a freshman program would allow about 70 freshmen to play all the sports at CHS alone. Todd Rebol, a CHS graduate who attended Florida State University on a football scholarship, added it’s hard for freshmen to get playing time on varsity teams, which could discourage them from playing at all.

Plus, it’s going to be televised boxing. That’s going to be exciting.” “Several years ago we saw the potential of doing a ght card of this magnitude in Arcadia,” said Ruben De Jesus, director of operations for AllStar Boxing. We were missing that one piece of the puzzle to make it a reality. That’s when Daniel Lozano came into the picture.

Health in Motion provides basic health screening services, not primary care services. “But we can refer them to a primary care provider if needed,” Shipley said. However, the county announced Wednesday the service is being suspended through most of April. Shipley said the driver of the unit, who also serves as a nurse, was injured in a non-work-related accident. “It requires a particular kind of license to operate the mobile unit and we don’t have the staff to ll in,” she said. DeSoto County moved up from 10th to seventh in overall health outcomes, coming in second to Sarasota County. Charlotte County dipped from 27th to 37th since 2014. Charlotte County improved from 35th to 28th in length of life. Sarasota rose from 15th to 14th while DeSoto remained at 22nd for the second year in a row. Quality of lifeBoth Sarasota and Charlotte counties straggled behind DeSoto County in the quality of life category. For the second consecutive year, DeSoto posted a fourthplace ranking. Sarasota County nished close behind at fth, up one from last year. Charlotte County dropped from a 28th ranking last year to 24th in the 2015 statistics. Mary Kay Burns, DeSoto County Health Department Health ofcer, said the upperechelon ranking is the product of communitywide effort. “The Florida Department of Health in DeSoto County works cooperatively with community partners and other government organizations to improve the health of all people in DeSoto County,” she said. “Each month, we meet with our partners to discuss issues and develop resolutions.” The crossorganizational meetings focus on factors that inuence health and quality of life, such as healthy weight initiatives, increasing physical activity opportunities by improving walkability and identifying funding opportunities to develop park areas,” she said. The area where DeSoto County lags behind Sarasota and Charlotte is factors that impact an individual’s health, like smoking and obesity. Sarasota’s third place ranking and Charlotte’s 13th far outpace DeSoto County’s 56th. Burns is not discour aged and said the county realizes there is still work to be done by the health department and community partners. “While there are admittedly some health factors that we must work harder to improve, it is this collaborative effort that will ultimately result in a higher overall quality of life for all residents and visitors in DeSoto County,” she said. As for Charlotte County, health department spokeswoman Allyson Sison said efforts are underway to improve health care services in the county, including making it easier for people to get mental health care as well as traditional health department services. “Creating better community health access is what is being done right now,” she said. The health department and its community partners are in the midst of an information-gathering campaign to assess the community’s needs and determine how best to meet them. Sison said those efforts are expected to help Charlotte County provide better services and move up in the state rankings.Email: cburton@sun-herald.comHEALTHYFROM PAGE 1RANKINGS BY COUNTY 2014 2015 Overall health outcomes Sarasota 8th 6th DeSoto 10th 7th Charlotte 27th 37th Length of life Sarasota 15th 14th DeSoto 22nd 22nd Charlotte 35th 28th Quality of life DeSoto 4th 4th Sarasota 6th 5th Charlotte 28th 34th Health factors (smoking, obesity, access to exercise, STDs, etc.) Sarasota 4th 3rd Charlotte 17th 13th DeSoto 57th 56th MURDOCK — Charlotte County is declaring victory after agreeing to pay out $35,000 as part of a lawsuit settlement, signicantly less than the $46 million sought by plaintiffs. The suit, led in May 2013, charged the county with breach of contract regarding a proposed truckto-rail transfer facility to be built by the plaintiffs, Weiler Engineering and 1775 LLC, separate entities controlled by R. Jeffrey Weiler. The county, however, insisted the agreement was contingent on receiving a federal grant, which would have allowed 1775 to develop the intermodal facility on a 20-acre parcel it purchased for $5.2 million in April 2006, but which fell into default. When the funding application was denied, Charlotte had no obligation to continue with the project, according to county attorneys. The lawsuit was scheduled for trial the rst week of May. “It’s called, ‘calling their bluff,’” said W. Cort Frohlich, representing Charlotte County. “When it became absolutely clear that (the county) was prepared to go to trial ... the plaintiffs folded their hand.” Weiler could not be reached for comment. The three-count complaint contends that from 2008 until 2011, Weiler Engineering and 1775 pursued the inter modal project at Charlotte County’s request, “providing signicant engineering services” and incurring “substantial expenditures.” Furthermore, the suit claims the county promised to buy the property from 1775 and failed to follow through with that purchase. In the lawsuit, Weiler states several potential buyers had approached the company with viable offers to buy the property, but were turned away because of the county’s expressed interest in developing the site. After the property was foreclosed on, the site was sold for $297,000, or less than six cents on the dollar, in April 2013, records show. Plaintiff 1775 asserts in court documents that its damages are $45 million to $46 million in present value dollars. Similarly, Weiler Engineering claims to have suffered damages of $934,168. “Charlotte County’s refusal to complete its agreement to participate in this facility was arbitrary and capricious,” the complaint states. But the county maintained from the beginning it was a frivolous lawsuit, saying it was prepared to contest each and every claim made by the plaintiffs to limit damages. In the end, Weiler Engineering receiving nothing for its efforts and the county paid just $35,000 to 1775, less than the estimated defense costs to proceed to trial. “The county will not be a punching bag for these types of lawsuits,” Frohlich said. Commissioners also questioned the suit’s validity. “The claimants should be ashamed of themselves,” Commissioner Tricia Duffy said.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comCharlotte settles lawsuit, claims winBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITER PUNTA GORDA — City housing leaders have reached consensus on a minimum price they want for prime waterfront property on East Marion Avenue that county ofcials have been eying for a parking lot expansion. At a recent Punta Gorda Housing Authority meeting, commissioners passed a resolution setting the minimum bid price for the 2.7-acre vacant property at 402 E. Marion Ave., at $1.4 million. The resolution has been for warded to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Miami ofce for review and nal approval, housing authority Executive Director Loraine Helber said. “They have to approve that, and once they do, and get back with us, we would then set up a (sealed) bid process,” Helber said, adding she hopes to hear back by the housing authority’s April 16 meeting. The housing authority-owned property once was home to dozens of senior public housing units, which were destroyed by Hurricane Charley. Since then, the site has sat vacant awaiting development. It previously had been on the market for $2.1 million, but was taken off the market after housing ofcials learned that any sale must go through a public bidding process. Early this month, Charlotte County ofcials expressed an interest in purchasing the land to use as an open-air parking lot for the possible expansion of the Charlotte County Justice Center. A parking lot, ofcials reasoned, would be much less expensive to build than a parking garage. But City Council members have expressed strong opposition against using waterfront property for a parking lot. “We should encourage commercial use of the property, and not turn it into a parking lot,” Councilwoman Nancy Prafke said. “I think there are other higher and best uses for the property. It’s a valuable piece of real estate.” Councilwoman Kim Devine agreed. “Let’s not forget that’s water front property,” Devine said. “If it were cleaned up a bit, you could see the water.” Devine pointed out there are several private investors interested in purchasing the property for mixed-use or residential development. “Mostly residential,” she said. But if the county submits the highest bid and becomes the property’s new owner, there’s not much city ofcials can do other than enforce the city’s code regulations. “The city needs to consider the potential loss of revenue from that property if it was, in fact, used as a parking lot,” Councilman Tom Cavanaugh said. On the other hand, if the county is the lowest bidder, the issue is dead. “It will be a sealed bid process, and whoever pays the most gets the land,” City Manager Howard Kunik said. “So it may be a moot issue.” The Punta Gorda Housing Authority will meet next at 8:30 a.m. April 16 in the author ity’s conference room, 340 Gulf Breeze Ave.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comOfficials: Parking lot not best use for waterfront propertyBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITER

NORTH PORT — Local authorities want to warn citizens of a possible IRS phone scam targeting victims in the area. According to a press release from city of North Port spokesman Josh Taylor, a caller who claims to be from the Internal Revenue Service contacts the victim and tells them that they, or a family member, owes taxes from previous years. Taylor said the caller will tell the victim how much they owe and that they can pay the balance over the phone with some type of money transfer service. North Port Police Economic Crimes Detective Herbert Stewartson said scammers are normally “high pressure,” and they will use some sort of emotional trigger to get the victim out of a rational state of mind, like fear of arrest. At a community meeting March 18 informing area citizens of scams, Stewartson said the method in which the money is asked to be sent is a red flag. “We all know that the IRS wants their money through Walmart 2 Walmart payment these days,” Stewartson said jokingly. “Those types of transactions — GreenDot cards, Western Union, Money Gram, Walmart 2 Walmart — are dead giveaways. It’s a way for the scammers to get and move the money quickly. These transactions are not FDIC-insured. You want to get that money back. It’s gone.” Taylor said that the caller will usually threaten the victim with the possibility of police coming to the victim’s house with an arrest warrant if they do not give the money. North Port resident Jesse Klosowski said at the March 18 meeting that he faced the IRS scenario that same week. “I got a call ... the IRS said I had to pay this amount of money or I would be thrown in jail. I told them I didn’t have that much because I was on vacation so I told them I needed to talk to someone about this. They called from two different numbers, then I realized it was a scam and I disconnected the call,” he said. Klosowski fortunately steered his way out of the scam demanding more than $9,600 in fake back taxes. The IRS recommends that people who receive calls like the one described above should always ask for the caller’s name, employee badge number and call-back number, and check the caller ID if available. Also, people are encouraged to contact the U.S. Department of Treasury at 1-800-366-4484 to find out if the caller is an IRS employee. If not, victims should report the incident to the U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at phishing@irs.gov with an email subject line of “IRS Phone Scam.”Email: ashirk@sun-herald.com IRS phone scam reported in areaBy ALLISON SHIRK STAFF WRITER SARASOTA COUNTY — A teacher at Wilkinson Elementary School who changed careers to become an educator after 9/11 has been named the 20152016 Sarasota County Teacher of the Year. Fifth-grade teacher Ed Hashey received the award during a ceremony Tuesday at Michael’s on East in Sarasota. He was one of three finalists up for the award, including Russell Finger from Suncoast Polytechnical High School and Christi McDowell-Cameron from Brookside Middle School. Accepting the award, Hashey remembered being in lower Manhattan on Sept. 11, 2001, while working on a graphic design project for the Wall Street Journal. He saw the first plane hit the World Trade Center. He described what he saw and heard as life-changing. “I was a witness to what happened,” he said. “I heard kids wailing and crying.” The emotional experience prompted Hashey into looking into making a difference in the lives of others through teaching. Hashey has taught for 12 years, eight of them in elementary schools and four at the college level. A U.S. Navy veteran, Hashey earned a bachelor’s degree in illustration from Ringling College of Art and Design and a master’s of education from the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee. He was an adjunct faculty instructor in graphic design at Ringling in 19992000 and at USF’s St. Petersburg campus in 2004-05. In 2007-08 he taught at Rowlett Magnet Elementary School in Bradenton, then taught at Wakeland Elementary School of International Studies from 2008-13, joining the Wilkinson Elementary faculty in Sarasota later in 2013. Hashey will receive a $3,500 cash award. Finalists McDowellCameron and Finger will receive $1,750 each. All three finalists also will receive $10,000 worth of instructional technology from the district for their class rooms to support their innovative approaches to teaching. Hashey will represent Sarasota County Schools at the Florida Department of Education-Macy’s Teacher of the Year program and will serve as a spokesperson for and representative of the teaching profession at various events throughout the 2015-16 school year.Wilkinson educator is Sarasota County’s Teacher of the YearProvided by AMBER ERICKSONABC-7 PHOTO PROVIDED BY ABC-7Wilkinson Elementary School fth-grade teacher Ed Hashey was named the 2015-2016 Sarasota County Teacher of the Year this week.

Describing Billy as a “self-proclaimed rearms expert” is unjust. Billy Carl’s credentials include certications as a Florida rearm’s instructor and an NRA-certied instructor. I’m not a gun-toting vigilante; in fact, until recently I was afraid of guns. My husband convinced me that I should be comfortable with handguns and know how to use one if necessary. After a few trips to the gun range, I was hooked on target shooting with my husband. Then, after reading one of Billy Carl’s articles I signed up for his course on handgun safety and use. The course covers the state of Florida’s requirements for concealed carry. Billy came to our home and conducted a thorough session on rearms use and safety before accompanying us to a ring range for hands-on training. As an inexperienced woman, I found Billy to be very professional and patient. I’m no handgun expert (yet) but I now feel comfortable knowing that I can defend myself. As a woman, I highly recommend Billy Carl as a rearms instructor. Furthermore, I nd his WaterLine articles interesting and informative, so please don’t stop publishing them.Susan Parker Punta GordaEditor: My property abuts the land proposed to be excavated for a channel to Alligator Creek. I’ve owned it since 2000 and have lived here since 2002. Thousands from Burnt Store Isles, Windmill Village and other developments use this small, shallow, busy waterway to access Charlotte Harbor. Boaters anchor there to sh or enjoy its beauty. Adding thousands of boats to this chokepoint will create congestion. The shoreline there creates a funnel. Southwest winds push water into the creek. The tides at my property rise an additional two to three feet. A 50-foot channel would do the Editor: I was a very strong patriotic Democrat in college in the 1950s and loved debating Republicans. Carter was the last Democrat I voted for. (He was at least honest.) Today, it is hard to believe the Democrats are even thinking of nominating Hillary Clinton. If I were debating her, my rst question would be, “Did you ever have a clue why Vince Foster committed suicide just before he would have had to testify in the White Water Scandal?” (Hillary would probably answer, “What difference does it make?”) “Well, if he hadn’t died you would probably have gone to prison, like Martha Stewart did Editor: The board showed great intelligence and concern when they voted not to allow dogs in Ponce de Leon Park.

Thank you for a wonderful park!Snowy Nettie Hammond Punta GordaEditor: I am concerned about these islands on these roads in Port Charlotte. They are so dangerous to cross over. I would like my tax dollars to start closing them and just making left-hand turns. There are so many accidents happening with these islands. I wonder if anyone else is concerned about these islands here in Charlotte County. I will also be writing letters to the commissioners to have my tax dollars put to good use to close these islands. I hope many people will do the same. I know my heart is in my mouth every time I go to cross one of those islands. Not only crossing to get to the other side, but having ve cars lined up going every which way. It is awful! I’m surprised I make it home safe and sound every day. Maryann Selvaggi Port CharlotteEditor: True story: While checking in at a very successful doctor’s ofce, I couldn’t help but notice two TVs in his very large waiting room. The TV on one side was tuned to FOX News and on the other side of the room the TV was tuned to CNN. Given the choice, guess which side most of the people were sitting at? The CNN side. I was rather pleasantly sur prised, with Port Charlotte being a red area. But this doctor is a smart man and he and his staff care about their patients. How nice! And I thank them for this. And because space is limited, I also want to thank all those who write letters to the editor lled with facts and kind words about this caring president, President Obama. I know who you are, and to half-quote Mitt Romney, I have “a binder full” of your letters that I love and have saved. Thank you. And to those of you who feel the need to send in such hateful and mean letters about a president who wants to help you, the middle class, by helping you with health care, taxes, education, wages, jobs, etc. (I can go on and on), you are biting the hand that is trying to help you. So, in closing, to all those letter writers who are writing positive letters about President Obama. Keep them coming, because I want my binder to be lled to the brim. Thank you.Ann Devore Port CharlotteEditor: A friend of mine traveled through the Punta Gorda Airport. The luggage carousel room was full; the deplaning passengers could not enter the room. For departure, he checked his bags, went over to the restaurant for coffee, then proceeded to the gate at 9 a.m., where he was denied boarding although the listed departure time was 9:20. The ladies at the gate said they were paging him, he did not respond, gured he was in the restaurant where there is no paging system, but did not check. The ticket agent said there were no ights until Monday, an erroneous statement because there was a Sunday ight. I took him to the Tampa air port, where the paging systems work and the airlines allow you to board up to departure time. Your paging system probably consists of two tin cans and a string. The Punta Gorda Airport and Allegiant will never see any of my friends or relatives again, ever. A side note, his luggage was already on the plane and left for Pittsburgh without him on Saturday the 21st, and he still had not located it as of Monday 2 p.m. Attention! How do you think all of the passengers liked ying with luggage that was checked by persons (insert potential ISIS here) that were not on the plane? With the impotent leadership that’s exhibited by the Punta Gorda Airport and Allegiant Airlines, this will never become a rst-class airport. Save the money and stop the new construction, you are failures.Larry Plowman North PortIntervention, rehabilitation the right courseOUR POSITION: Special veterans court programs appropriately concentrate on treatment and rehabilitative services, not punishment.A proposal to begin a diversion-style court program for military veterans in Sarasota and Manatee counties deserves to be placed on the fast track. Roughly 20 counties have already set up veterans courts since the Legislature established specic guidelines last year. Ed Brodsky, state attorney for the 12th Judicial Circuit, has joined with veter ans advocates to explore the possibility here, and a delegation traveled to Pinellas County this week to check out the system in place there. (Charlotte County, included in the 20th Judicial Circuit, also does not have a veterans court system.) Veterans courts operate like drug courts, which intervene early after an arrest and provide an alternative judicial process for rst-time offenders. In lieu of nes and jail, veterans would have the option for supervised treatment aimed at rehabilitation. “Linking veterans with ser vices they need, instead of just sending them to jail, could help them turn their lives around,” Brodsky recently told Sun staff writer Elaine Allen-Emrich. “We know there are consequences, but we also realize veterans may not have been able to access services they need.” The program is for nonviolent, low-level crimes. Those arrested are screened and assessed for participation, then assigned specic services under careful guidance. The program is tightly constructed. Generally, participants must admit guilt, agree to drug and alcohol testing, meet with case managers and follow management directives established by a team assembled by the court. Counseling and education are provided, all aimed at preventing further problems. For instance, the veteran may have needed, but was unable to access, medical or psychological treatment or job training at the Bay Pines Veterans Administration clinic. Through this program, he could get it. If an offender in the program fails to complete the requirements, he or she goes back into the court system and the case proceeds along the typical track. If the program is completed to a court team’s satisfaction, the charge is wiped off the books. And, presumably, underly ing problems are addressed. Overall, these diversion programs allow a person to take better control of his life without a mark on his record. Our veterans have earned special consideration. Those who have served in the wars since 2001, in particular, deserve special attention during their re-integration into society, especially in light of alarmingly high rates of post-traumatic stress disorder. The ball is rolling. Brodsky has picked up support from many in the community, including Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Longboat Key. It is a good and proper alternative for those who have served us. They deserve this special consideration as soon as possible. Sarasota County has more than 47,000 veterans. With such a large population, it makes sense to address the special needs of the men and women who have served their country well. same in PGI. It’s difcult to say how this will affect city-owned seawalls, but it’s reasonable to assume more wear and tear. I was foolish enough to stay in my home during Hurricane Charley. When the eye passed and the wind shifted to the southwest, we had a 7-feet storm surge. No one I spoke with in PGI or BSI saw any surge. Apparently, the mangroves acted as a natural barrier we don’t have. Our canal was dredged several years ago. The cut to the deeper part of the creek lasted 18 months. How long before this lls in where it joins Alligator Creek? Who would pay for maintenance dredging? I’m skeptical of the $1.5 million estimate. When costs mount, are the property owners who benet going to pay? Or will they appeal to the city taxpayers to bail them out? This is a project that would benet a few subsidized by many.Michael, Kathy Markgraf Punta Gorda(for a lesser crime), and that would have saved our country from you ever running for public ofce. Thus, Benghazi would not have happened and we wouldn’t have had to listen to you lie, for weeks, that a mysterious tape was the cause of the attack on Benghazi.” Where is the man who made the tape? Still in prison? I would really like to see the tape. I’m thinking, more than likely it was a warning about ISIS and the horrors they planned to start doing. Isn’t a tape a form of free speech? You know her answer. “What difference does it make?” Lord help us.Emmaline Wright Placida

The Sun /Thursday, March 26, 2015 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINTWe’re nearly half way through the legislative session and the Florida House and Senate are releasing their respective budget plans. Many important budget issues are still in ux. One issue that shouldn’t still be in ux is funding for the Land and Water Conservation Amendment, which passed in the November election with 75 percent of the vote. Yes, Amendment One received more votes than any other item on the ballot — by far. One could call it a mandate. The amendment language was clear and voters understood what they were voting for. The title of the amendment was crystal clear: “Water and Land Conservation — Dedicates funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and recreation lands.” Sounds a lot like Florida Forever. It requires that onethird of an existing revenue source — the documentary stamp tax — annually be placed in a trust fund and used for conservation and recreation land acquisition, restoration and management. Again, sounds a lot like Florida Forever. A brief history: Recognizing the importance of protecting and preserving our natural resources, the Florida Legislature passed two different land acquisition and restoration programs, Preservation 2000 and its successor, Florida Forever. For its 10-year duration Preservation 2000 was fully funded. Florida Forever was fully funded at $300 million a year for its rst nine years. In 2009, Florida Forever received no funding due to the budget crisis. Supporters of the preservation program understood that the recession necessitated taking a year off. But the following year only $19 million of the $300 million was funded followed by nothing in 2011 and 2012, $10 million in 2013 and $17 million in 2014. How did such a popular program that goes to the very heart of what makes Florida special get on the chopping block and never regain its intended level of funding? Frustrated citizens took matters into their own hands to help preserve the quality of life for Floridians and our nature-based tourism. The impetus for Amendment One was to restore funding for Florida Forever and Everglades restoration to protect and preserve our natural habitats and water resources. So now we’re waiting for the Legislature to follow the state Constitution and implement the will of the voters. It’s not looking good. In a deliberate snub to voters, the House and Senate released drastically different and equally offensive funding plans. The Senate plan puts aside a paltry $2 million for Florida Forever. Two million? Are you kidding me? After voters passed the amendment with 75 percent of the vote? How insulting! Voters should be outraged. To put it in perspective: The total 2015 budget is expected to be somewhere between $77 billion and $80 billion. Documentary stamp revenues are estimated to be $2.16 billion. One-third of the total doc stamp revenue required for Amendment One equates to $720 million. That represents less than one percent of the total budget. So it was reasonable to expect that Florida Forever would be fully funded at $300 million and funding for Everglades restoration could be $50 million to $100 million. That would leave $300+ million to boost conservation and recreation land management, protect our springs, restore natural systems, enhance public access to conservation lands and pay debt service on conservation bonds issued. Apparently that is only reasonable here in the real world, not in the Tallahassee bubble. When a large pot of money appears, there’s a feeding frenzy for a piece of the action. And ironically, those who voted against the ballot initiative are among the rst ones with their hands out. It’s amazing how creatively they craft their projects to try to t the parameters for the Land and Water Conservation dollars. But it’s like putting a square peg in a round hole — it just doesn’t t. Unfortunately legislators seem to be accommodating their wishes while ignoring the voters. Legislators are also playing shell games by including items that have traditionally been funded with other revenue sources such as septic tanks, wastewater treatment plants and state agency operations. The chairman of the Senate committee that determined this level of funding believes Florida owns enough land. While that’s an interesting — albeit misinformed — personal opinion, it’s also a moot point since the Constitution now requires land acquisition. The coalition that jumped through all the hoops to get the amendment on the ballot and passed now has to beg the legislators who ignored their pleas before to honor them now. The difference is they now have 4,230,858 voters standing with them. There’s still a long way to go in the budget process. Let’s hope that means something when the full House and Senate vote on the nal budget. Paula Dockery is a syndicated columnist who served in the Florida Legislature for 16 years as a Republican from Lakeland. Readers may reach her at PBDockery@ gmail.com.Why is it so hard to listen to voters? Paula Dockery President Obama got it two-thirds right when he said that the delayed conr mation of his attorney general nominee, Loretta Lynch, is owing to Senate dysfunction and Republican stubbornness. He left out the part about Democratic intransigence and at least one incident of “wacko-birdness” from the left. When John McCain originally used “wackobirds” to describe a few of his Senate colleagues, including now-presidential candidate Ted Cruz, he seems to have released a contagion. The U.S. Senate, once the perch of eagles, has begun to resemble an aviary of grackles. Much a-cawing about little. Lynch’s qualications aren’t really in question. Most agree that she’s more than up to the job, yet her conrmation has been stalled by Republicans who want something in exchange for their blessings. Within this construct are at least four moving parts that have little or nothing to do with Lynch’s conrmation — sex trafcking, abortion, race and immigration. If you’re not confused, stick around. First up, abortion and sex. What else? Republicans are demanding a (Henry) Hyde Amendmenttype component to the sex-trafcking bill. This sort of restriction of federal spending for abor tion has routinely been included without debate in relevant legislation for nearly 40 years. This time, Democrats say no-go. Republicans respond: No Hyde, no Lynch. Both points of view have merit though neither is germane to the Lynch nomination — or necessarily apt in this particular piece of legislation. We are, after all, talking sex trafcking of mostly women and children, some of whom may have become pregnant in the process. Given that most Republicans are willing to grant exceptions to their anti-abortion stance for victims of rape or incest (the language for which is included in the Hyde Amendment), I’m not sure what either Republicans or Democrats are worried about. With or without the Hyde language, a sex slave is going to get what she needs medically. Meanwhile, what does it prot the GOP to tie the conrmation of Lynch — who would be the rst AfricanAmerican female attorney general — to legislation that needn’t be controversial? Answer: It doesn’t. Lynch has been waiting in the wings now for longer than any other attorney general nominee in U.S. history. Republicans, principled or not, have merely opened themselves up to challenges of racism and even sexism. Clamoring to this low branch is grackle du jour Sen. Dick Durbin, whose hyperbole is exceeded only by his wearying lack of originality. Republicans, he cawed, are forcing Lynch to “sit in the back of the bus.” The “bus”? Really? The back burner, perhaps, but the Lynch debate hardly centers on race relations in America. Now if we were talking about coffee . . . Durbin has earned ample criticism for his remark, but the double standard deserves a fresh airing. To wit, or tu-whoo, if I am to sustain this now-bur densome bird metaphor, Durbin’s vote against Condoleezza Rice for secretary of state 10 years ago. Was he being racist? Finally, we arrive at the fourth moving part — immigration. All but four Republican senators thus far say they won’t conrm Lynch because of her kinda, sorta, roundabout cautious embrace of Obama’s executive actions on immigration as at least “reasonable.” At least these objections are based somewhat on concerns about legal reasoning, but are they smart? One of the GOP’s persistent aws is picking the wrong battles — and this seems yet another. As a matter of record, nearly every president in the past 50 years has taken some executive action on immigration. More to the core of the problem, Republicans could have pre-empted the president’s action with a comprehensive reform bill. Instead, they’ve taken a piecemeal approach, rst by threatening to shut down Homeland Security (brilliant!) and now trying to block access to Earned Income Tax Credit for immigrants affected by Obama’s executive action. The quid for their quo isn’t applause but fresh nourishment for three familiar narratives: Republicans wage war on women; Republicans are racists; Republicans don’t like Latinos. It doesn’t matter that these are false, just as are right-wing taunts that Obama is a Muslim who hates America. It only matters that the narratives survive through this election cycle. In the game of branding and perception, truth sits in the back of a bus called Narrative, steered by a wacko bird called Twitter. And Republicans seem to get off on the wrong stop every time.

The Sun /Thursday, March 26, 2015 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 13 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS ENGLEWOOD — Lemon Bay High School parents recently were told about tentative plans to renovate the school’s theater. Members of the School Advisory Council learned there will be upgrades and new equipment added to the aging theater, which has been the stage for hundreds of productions over the years. “We are still in meetings about the theater,” Charlotte County Public Schools spokesman Mike Riley said. “They are still working on color charts, upgrades to the lobby, new chairs and the sound equipment. These are all a priority. “We want there to be a ‘wow factor’ when guests walk into the lobby,” he said. “All of this is very preliminary.” Work on this phase of construction could begin in the summer, and is estimated to continue through the end of the year. LBHS principal Bob Bedford’s ofce said he could not comment on any “construction-related questions,” including where students could perform for plays, or where award ceremonies would be held, during the renovation. “The students wouldn’t be able to have a fall production (if) the theater isn’t usable because the seats are being removed or the building is being painted,” Riley said. “There are some options like the Englewood Event Center, where some things could be held if we didn’t have them in a different area of the school like the gym.” For several years, Fellowship Church members have met and had two Sunday morning services at the school’s Performing Arts Center. The church will not be displaced during the renovations. “Several weeks after Easter, the church will be moving into its new location,” Riley said. “They have built their own building (in Rotonda West).” Riley said the information passed onto SAC members isn’t concrete just yet. “This is a projection on the timetable,” he said. “That doesn’t mean that will happen. Right now, we are talking about the very basics that (are) needed to doll up the lobby and theater.” According to the Charlotte County School Board’s ve-year district facilities work plan, the renovations are included in a $13.5 million portion of construction at the school. The school has been under construction since 2009 through an overall $80 million six-phase project that will completely rebuild the school when nished. So far, the district has completed a new three-story academic building, along with a new gymnasium, lockers, a wrestling room and a weight room, a new cafeteria, new band rooms and a theater department. The new administration building, opened last year, includes a health clinic with a nursing station, a new media center, new drafting classrooms and a state-of-the-art TV studio with green-screen walls. The 375,000-square-foot construction project is replacing the old campus, originally built in 1962 as an elementary school. The construction was funded partially with a $40 million federal stimulus package that was used to cover the interest on construction loans. The new portions are “green buildings,” with solar hot water and photovoltaic energy systems, and are hur ricane-hardened to conform with new building codes. The new buildings are 6 feet higher than the old, negating ooding problems. The high school is expected to have a lifespan of 50 to 75 years. And there’s room for expansion to accommodate another 350 students as Englewood grows. The current theater is more than 25 years old, and still sports its original seating, which shows wear and tear. LBHS theater students recently performed “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” as the last play in the old building. “It’s going to be exciting to have an upgraded theater,” said Dennis Hall, theater director, who worked with the contractor on the wall color for his new theater classroom last year. The theater and music departments were linked physically to the existing theater two years ago. “There’s no reason it cannot be used for more community per formances like the event center in Punta Gorda,” Hall said. “It will be a real boost for the Englewood community as a whole.”Email: eallen@sun-herald.comLemon Bay theater to get overhaulBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHCOMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR SUN PHOTO BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHLemon Bay High School students recently performed the “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” musical comedy at the Performing Arts Center on the Englewood campus. There are tentative plans to replace the lighting, seating and sound equipment at the center later this year. Steven Vedro, author of “Digital Dharma,” which has been published in ve languages, will be offering a free presentation at The Open Studio, 380 Old Englewood Road, Englewood, at 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Vedro’s presentation is titled “Digital Dharma: Healing the Grid, Healing the Self.” His discussion will explore “healing the communications grid” — inside ourselves (our chakras), and the one we are creating around the planet (our web of electronic devices, the cloud, social media networks, and always-on digitally-connected environments.) Vedro’s professional life involved planning distance learning networks and digital media initiatives. He has also, however, spent a great deal of time exploring and honing his spiritual side. He is a graduate of the Hoffman Quadrinity Process, the Inner Focus School of Soul Directed Advanced Energy Healing, and a certied Ritual Elder in the Mankind Project, an international men’s community that offers The New Warrior Training Adventure initiation weekend in 12 countries. He is a student in the Ruhaniat Su Order, and the host of myblessing circle.com, an online Su Blessing blog. Steven combined his deep spirituality with his technical expertise to write the book he’ll be discussing. In describing his presentation, Steven said, “I believe that our global ‘Infosphere’ is a creation and reection of our evolving consciousness — with all of its Light and Shadow. Like everything in this world of incarnation, it is not ‘out there,’ but in deepest truth, ‘inside us.’” Steven will present excerpts from his book, open the group up to sharing, and lead a clearing/healing visualization for each chakra and its external network manifestation. This event, which is part of a non-denominational, non-judgmental spirituality series, is free and open to all interested adults. An additional event, Meditation: Renewal through Chakra Alignment, has been scheduled for April 5 (Easter) from 10 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at Open Studio’s Healing Arts Center. It will include a guided Chakra Cleansing and Alignment Meditation led by Rita Schwab, who was initiated in Transcendental Meditation by a direct disciple of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.Author to speak about ‘Digital Dharma’ at Open StudioPROVIDED BY THE OPEN STUDIO VEDRO adno=50479032

Bowe Bergdahl, who abandoned his post in Afghanistan and was held captive for ve years by the Taliban, was charged Wednesday by the U.S. military with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy and could get life in prison if convicted. The charges are the latest development in a long and bitter debate over Bergdahl’s case. They also underscore the military and political ramications of his decision on June 30, 2009, to leave his post after expressing misgivings about the U.S. military’s role, as well as his own, in the Afghanistan war. Bergdahl, 28, was captured by the Taliban and held by members of the Haqqani network, an insurgent group tied to the Taliban that operates both in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Last May 31, Bergdahl was handed over to U.S. special forces in Afghanistan as part of an exchange for ve Taliban commanders who were imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The exchange set off a debate over whether the U.S. should have released the ve Taliban members.

Asian and Formosan subterranean termites are two of the most destruc tive termite species in the world, responsible for much of the estimated $40 billion in economic losses attributed to termites annually. Their habitat ranges overlap in lush South Florida, already home to a daunting number of invasive plant and animal species thriving where they should not. Each termite invaded Florida, probably through cargo shipments, several decades ago, but experts believed the colonies didn’t mingle because their aboveground mating swarms launched in different months. That is, until University of Florida researcher Thomas Chouvenc noticed something unusual about the termite swarms in his Fort Lauderdale neighbor hood two years ago. The two species were ying around looking for mates at the same time — and they were giving each other that look. The research is preliminary and leaves many questions Termite threat: A love storyBy JENNIFER KAYASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER AP PHOTOSThis undated photo provided by Thomas Chouvenc of the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS), shows a light-colored female Formosan termite, left, exhibiting mating behavior with the darker male Asian termite in Florida.

Joseph Amorese, of Easton, got the ticket from his father, who lives in the hamlet of Congers in Rockland County, N.Y. Amorese had just undergone hernia surgery. A few scratches later on the “$7 million Golden Ticket,” and he was feeling great. “I scratched the ticket and it was a good thing I was already sitting down because I was shocked. I was — and still am — in complete disbelief,” Amorese said. “I had surgery so I didn’t jump up and down, but in my mind I was jumping up and down,” the beaming winner recalled Wednesday. He sent a photo of the ticket to his dad, who agreed that it was a winner. The 46-year-old Verizon employee then called his wife, Jodi, a social worker. “I said, ‘Honey, I think we won $7 million.’ And there was silence on the other end for a long time. She was too stunned to talk,” Amorese said. Lottery ofcials presented Amorese with a ceremonial check at the dollar store in New City, N.Y., where the ticket was purchased. The new multimillionaire and his wife plan to keep their jobs.Man gets $7M lottery ticket in get-well cardBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SEYNE-LES-ALPES, France — The rst half of Germanwings Flight 9525 was chilling in its nor malcy. It took off from Barcelona en route to Duesseldorf, climbing up over the Mediterranean and turning over France. The last communication was a routine request to continue on its route. Minutes later, at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, the Airbus A320 inexplicably began to descend. Within 10 minutes it had plunged from its cruising altitude of 38,000 feet to just over 6,000 feet and slammed into a remote mountainside. To nd out why, investigators have been analyzing the mangled black box that contains an audio recording from the cockpit. Remi Jouty, the head of France’s accident investigation bureau BEA, said Wednesday that it has yielded sounds and voices, but so far not the “slightest explanation” of why the plane crashed, killing all 150 on board. A newspaper report, however, suggests the audio contains intriguing information at the least: One of the pilots is heard leaving the cockpit, then banging on the door with increasing urgency in an unsuccessful attempt to get back in. “The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer,” The New York Times quotes an unidentied investigator as saying. “And then he hits the door stronger and no answer.

Hadi’s departure marks a dramatic turn in Yemen’s turmoil and means a decisive collapse of what was left of his rule, which the United States and Gulf allies had hoped could stabilize the chronically chaotic nation and ght al-Qaida’s branch here after the 2011 ouster of longtime autocrat Ali Abdullah Saleh. Over the past year, the Shiite rebels known as Houthis, who are believed to be supported by Iran, have battled their way out of their northern strongholds, overwhelmed the capital, Sanaa, seized province after province in the north and worked their way south. Ukraine president dismisses powerful regional governorKIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine’s president acted to quell a potential source of fresh political unrest Wednesday by dismissing the truculent billionaire governor of a region neighboring areas where ghting is still taking place between government and separatist forces. The confrontation between oil and banking tycoon Ihor Kolomoysky and the authorities has highlighted the struggle Ukraine will face in diluting the inuence of super-rich businessmen in public life.

Syrian rebels seize ancient town near Jordanian borderBEIRUT (AP) — Syrian rebels on Wednesday seized an ancient town near the Jordan border that is a key government stronghold, ousting Syrian soldiers and allied militiamen from the region after four days of intense battles, opposition activists and rebels said. There was no immediate comment from the government on the fall of Busra Sham, a town in southern Syria classied as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its historic citadel, ruins and well-preserved Roman theater. It was once the capital of the Roman province of Arabia and a stopover on caravan routes to Mecca, according to UNESCO.New direction: 1D says Zayn Malik has left the groupLONDON (AP) — And then there were four: Zayn Malik said Wednesday he is leaving chart-topping boy band One Direction “to be a normal 22-year-old.” In an announcement that broke teenage hearts and sent social media into a tizzy, Malik’s bandmates said they were sad to see him go “but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future.” Malik, who quit the band’s world tour last week citing stress, said in a statement that his time with One Direction “has been more than I could ever have imagined.”Iran says progress has been made in nuclear talks TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s atomic energy chief said good progress has been made in nuclear negotiations with world powers, as a critical round of talks begins, the ofcial IRNA news agency reported.

The news of the mass kidnappings comes as Nigeria prepares for crucial elections on Saturday. Several hundred people were taken captive by the Islamic militants as they retreated earlier this month from Damasak in northeastern Nigeria, Mike Omeri, the Nigerian spokesman for the ght against Boko Haram, told The Associated Press Wednesday. He said he could not specify how many were taken captive but local reports say as many as 500 people were seized. When troops from Chad and Niger advanced toward Damasak, Boko Haram began taking captives, said Omeri, speaking in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja.Israel’s Netanyahu tapped to form new governmentJERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, struck a conciliatory tone on Wednesday as he was formally tapped to form a new government, vowing to heal rifts in Israeli society and x ties with the United States following an acrimonious election campaign. Netanyahu’s comments appeared to be aimed at repairing the damage caused by comments he made in the nal days of the campaign that strained ties with the United States and drew accusations of racism from the country’s Arab minority. WASHINGTON (AP) — At Iraq’s request, the U.S. began airstrikes in Tikrit on Wednesday in support of a stalled Iraqi ground offensive to retake the city from Islamic State ghters. The bombing marked a signicant expansion of the U.S. military role in Iraq. “These strikes are intended to destroy ISIL strongholds with precision, thereby saving innocent Iraqi lives while minimizing” unintended damage to civilian structures, Lt. Gen. James L. Terry, the commander of the U.S.-led campaign to defeat the Islamic State group, said in a written statement. “This will further enable Iraqi forces under Iraqi command to maneuver and defeat ISIL in the vicinity of Tikrit,” Terry said, using an acronym for the Islamic State group. Tikrit is deemed an important test of the ability of Iraq, with coalition support, to retake ground it ceded to the Islamic State last year. The U.S. initially did not provide air support in Tikrit because Baghdad pointedly chose instead to partner with Iran in a battle it predicted would yield a quick victory. In recent days, however, the Pentagon has called the Iraqi offensive “stalled.” An Associated Press correspondent in Tikrit reported hearing war planes overhead late Wednesday, followed by multiple explosions. An Iraqi commander in the city told the AP that a warehouse used to store Islamic State weapons was bombed by a U.S. plane, and a U.S. ofcial in Washington conrmed that arms warehouses were among the targets. The Iraqi commander spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss details of the airstrikes. The Washington ofcial, who also spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss military details, said there were no more than one dozen airstrikes Wednesday, and said some were conducted by U.S. allies. The ofcial had no details on the extent of allied participation, including which countries launched airstrikes. The ofcial said Wednesday’s attacks were the rst in a series that would be carried out in the days to come as the coalition coordinates with Iraqi ground troops who have encircled Tikrit but not penetrated deeply into the city. The battle for Tikrit is widely seen as a step toward the more difficult and potentially decisive battle to regain control of the larger city of Mosul. In an address to the nation Wednesday evening, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi predicted success in Tikrit but did not say the U.S. was providing airstrikes. “We have started the final phase of the oper ation in Tikrit,” he said. “You will liberate your ground, not anyone but you,” he said in a speech to the Iraqi people. Al-Abadi praised all the groups involved in the battle against the Islamic State group, including the so-called Popular Mobilization Forces, which the U.S. calls Iranian-backed Shiite militias, and well as the Sunni tribes and coalition forces. But he fell short of confirming that the coalition is playing a direct role in Tikrit.US conducting airstrikes to help Iraq retake Tikrit, Iraq | HEADLINES FROM AROUND THE NATIONMarch to Montgomery endsMONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Thousands of people marched to the Alabama Capitol on Wednesday, retracing the steps of the nal leg of the 1965 Selma-toMontgomery voting rights march. The march is the nal event in a monthlong commemoration marking the 50th anniversary of the key event of the civil rights movement. “Alabama made history for all the wrong reasons, but today Alabama is different,” Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley told the crowd. “Today is a vivid reminder of how far we have come as a state and as a nation. It is also a reminder of what happens when you never give up.” The daughters of Martin Luther King Jr. and former Alabama Gov. George Wallace were to address marchers Wednesday afternoon. Woman who had baby cut from belly released from hospitalLONGMONT, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado woman whose unborn baby was cut from her womb by a stranger with a kitchen knife has been released from a hospital a week after the gruesome attack. The family of Michelle Wilkins, 26, said in a statement Wednesday that she is in a safe location with her partner, Dan, and faces a long and costly recovery. The baby girl she planned to name Aurora did not survive. Police say Dynel Lane, 34, lured Wilkins to her home on March 18 with a Craigslist ad offering baby clothes. Lane then beat and stabbed Wilkins and removed the unborn child. Lane was arrested at a hospital after telling her husband she had suffered a miscarriage. Pressure cooker parts, BBs, nails shown to Boston juryBOSTON (AP) — Jurors in the trial of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have been shown pressure cooker parts, BBs, nails and a piece of hobby fuse that were found in his apartment. The items were found four days after the 2013 terror attack, which killed three people and injured more than 260 others. Tsarnaev’s lawyers have admitted that he and his brother, Tamerlan, planted and detonated two pressure-cooker bombs near the marathon nish line. Prosecutors have said the bombs were lled with BBs, nails and other shrapnel. They have also said the bombs were made with fuses from Christmas tree lights. A string of lights was also found in the Cambridge apartment.Obama says he’s ready to sign Medicare doctor payment fixWASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he’s ready to sign good bipartisan legislation to fix Medicare’s doctor payment problem, without endorsing any specific legislation. Without a fix, doctors face a 21 percent cut in Medicare fees, the consequence of a 1990s budget law that Congress has repeatedly waived. The House is expected to vote today on a bill with rare support from both top leaders in the House that would permanently fix the problem. Obama backed the idea of a fix at a White House event marking this week’s five-year anniversary of his signing the Affordable Care Act, while stopping short of backing the House compromise.1 person killed when tornadoes hit Oklahoma, ArkansasTULSA, Okla.

North Carolina law says a person can’t expose himself in a place where the public has access. But CMPD spokesman Rob Tufano told The Charlotte Observer that police want to change that, making it clear that it’s unlawful for a person to expose himself if he can be seen from a public place.

On this date In 1812, an earthquake devastated Caracas, Venezuela, causing an estimated 26,000 deaths, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. In 1827, composer Ludwig van Beethoven died in Vienna. In 1874, poet Robert Frost was born in San Francisco. In 1892, poet Walt Whitman died in Camden, N.J. In 1917, the Seattle Metropolitans became the rst U.S. team to win the Stanley Cup as they defeated the Montreal Canadiens. In 1934, Britain enacted a Road Trac Act reimposing a 30 mile-per-hour speed limit in “built-up areas” and requiring driving tests for new motorists. In 1958, the U.S. Army launched America’s third successful satellite, Explorer 3. In 1964, the musical play “Funny Girl,” starring Barbra Streisand as Fanny Brice, opened on Broadway. In 1979, a peace treaty was signed by Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and witnessed by President Jimmy Carter at the White House. In 1982, groundbreaking ceremonies took place in Washington, D.C., for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. In 1990, “Driving Miss Daisy” won the Academy Award for best picture; its star, Jessica Tandy, was named best actress.

He also does not speculate on why the other pilot didn’t open the door or make contact with ground control before the crash. Since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, airlines in the U.S. don’t leave one pilot alone in the cockpit. The standard operating procedure is that if one of the pilots leaves — for example to use the bathroom — a ight attendant takes their spot in the cockpit. It was not immediately clear if European airlines have adopted the same practice. The names of the pilots have not been released. French officials gave no details from the recording on Wednesday, insisting the cause of the crash remained a mystery. They said the descent was gradual enough to suggest the plane was under the control of its navigators. “At this point, there is no explanation,” Jouty said. “One doesn’t imagine that the pilot consciously sends his plane into a mountain.” Jouty said “sounds and voices” were registered on the digital audio le recovered from the rst black box. But he did not divulge the contents, insisting days or weeks will be needed to decipher them. “There’s work of under standing voices, sounds, alarms, attribution of different voices,” the BEA chief said. Confusion surrounded the fate of the second black box. French President Francois Hollande said the casing of the ight data recorder had been found in the scattered debris, but was missing the memory card that captures 25 hours’ worth of information on the position and condition of almost every major part in a plane. Jouty refused to conrm the discovery. French ofcials said terrorism appeared unlikely and Germany’s top security ofcial said there was no evidence of foul play. As authorities struggled to unravel the puzzle, Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy converged on the remote accident site to pay their respects to the dead — mostly German and Spanish citizens among at least 17 nationalities. “This is a true tragedy, and the visit here has shown us that,” Merkel said after she and Hollande overew the desolate craggy mountainside. Helicopters ferried in rescue workers and other personnel throughout the day. More than 600 rescue and security workers and aviation investigators were on-site, French ofcials said. Germanwings CEO Thomas Winkelmann said the airline was in the process of contacting victims’ families. He said the 144 passengers and six crew members included 72 Germans, 35 Spaniards, three Americans and two people each from Australia, Argentina, Iran, Venezuela, and one person each from Britain, the Netherlands, Colombia, Mexico, Japan, Denmark, Belgium and Israel. The three Americans included a mother and daughter, the U.S. State Department said. Some of the victims may have had dual nationalities; Spain’s government said 51 citizens had died in the crash. Two babies, two opera singers and 16 German high school students and their teachers returning from an exchange program in Spain were among those who lost their lives.BLACK BOXFROM PAGE 1 unanswered, but the idea of a hybrid termite carrying the destructive capabilities of two invasive species worries experts. “That’s big news,” said Matthew Messenger, an entomologist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. “They’re two bad ones, too.” Chouvenc is the lead author of a study published Wednesday in the journal PLOS ONE detailing observations of Asian and Formosan ter mite swarms in downtown Fort Lauderdale and then in a lab at UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. In the eld, including Chouvenc’s own yard, researchers documented the two species swarming at the same time and in the same places. The same behavior was documented again last year, and Chouvenc said he’s seeing it again this spring. “What we didn’t expect to see was when they’re in the same place at the same time, we saw the male Asian subterranean termites looking for the female Formosan termites in the eld,” Chouvenc said. “When we put them in vials and brought them back to the lab, to our biggest surprise they started laying eggs and the eggs started growing.” The resulting “hybrid” colony in the lab grew more vigorously than colonies produced by either species alone, researchers said. Genetic analysis conrmed they were looking at a hybrid species. Similar hybridization has been documented in invasive bee and re ant species, but not in termites. The two termite species also are found together on the island of Oahu in Hawaii and in Taiwan, but the simultaneous swarms and hybridization found in Florida appears to be a new phenomenon. It’s still unknown whether a hybrid colony has survived in the wild in Fort Lauderdale, or whether the hybrids bred in the lab can reproduce. Female termites can lay millions of eggs, but it takes ve to eight years for a colony to produce the mature adults that y in the mating swarms. “Let’s keep our ngers crossed that they’re not able (to reproduce) and that they’re donkey ter mites,” said Messenger, who reviewed the data but did not participate in the UF study. Even if hybrid termites can’t reproduce, they could cause damage over many years. Alone, each species is a challenge to control. Their below-ground colonies are bigger than those of native termites and can be hard to nd. The Formosan termites originated in China but now are established throughout the Southeast and blamed for roughly $300 million in property damage each year in New Orleans alone. Asian termites normally found in tropical southeastern Asia have spread to Brazil, the Caribbean and South Florida. Asian termites aren’t expected to spread farther north in the U.S. than South Florida because they don’t tolerate colder weather, but a hybrid might be able to thrive in a greater range than either species alone.TERMITEFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOThis undated photo provided by Thomas Chouvenc of the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS), shows young hybrid termite ospring eight months after the light-colored female Formosan termite, bottom right, mated with the darker male Asian termite, bottom left, in Florida. the exchange from some lawmakers, including U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas and the chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security. “President Obama endangered our national security and broke the law when he chose to negotiate with terrorists and release hardened enemy combatants from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Sgt. Bergdahl — who many believed at the time was a deserter,” McCaul said in a statement. The Obama administration appeared to stand by the swap. “Was it worth it? Absolutely. We have a commitment to our men and women serving overseas, or in our military, defending our national security every day, that we will do everything we can to bring them home, and that’s what we did in this case,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in an interview on Fox News. The misbehavior charge could land Bergdahl in prison for life, though some legal experts said a lengthy sentence was unlikely. He also could be dishonorably discharged and forfeit all his pay if convicted on either charge. Next, an Article 32 hear ing — similar to a civilian grand jury proceeding — will be held at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, where Bergdahl has been performing administrative duties. A date was not announced. From there, it could be referred to a court-martial and go to trial. His attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment. After a lengthy investigation that included interviewing unit members and commanders and meetings with Bergdahl and his attorney, the case was referred to Gen. Mark Milley, who had a broad range of legal options. Milley could have decid ed not to charge Bergdahl at all, recommend administrative action or convene a court-martial on more serious offenses. Bergdahl also could have faced more serious desertion charges, though this charge does not require prosecutors to prove that he had no intention of returning to his unit. It was unlikely that prosecutors would have sought a desertion charge that carried a possible death penalty after American lives and Taliban prisoners were exchanged to get Bergdahl back, said Jeffrey K. Walker, a St. John’s University law professor, retired Air Force ofcer and former military lawyer. Still, the military could have a tough case to make, said former Army lawyer Greg Rinckey. “It’s tough to prove beyond a reasonable doubt, especially if you have someone that’s been gone for ve years and potentially may have some mental health issues at the time that the defense is going to bring up,” Rinckey said. The misbehavior charge is rarely seen in military cases, typically reserved for shameful or cowardly conduct, said Daniel Conway, a military defense lawyer and the author of a forthcoming book on military crimes. Conway said he wouldn’t expect the Army to seek much prison time for Bergdahl because of his time as a Taliban captive, but ofcials needed to prosecute the case because a conviction means Bergdahl cannot collect special compensation as a prisoner of war.DESERTEDFROM PAGE 1 WASHINGTON (AP) — Normally quarrelsome House Republicans came together Wednesday night and passed a boldly conservative budget that relies on nearly $5 trillion in cuts to eliminate decits over the next decade, calls for repealing the health care law and envisions transformations of the tax code and Medicare. Final passage, 228199, came shortly after Republicans bumped up recommended defense spending to levels proposed by President Barack Obama. Much of the budget’s savings would come from Medicaid, food stamps and welfare, programs that aid the low-income, although details were sketchy. Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., chairman of the House Budget Committee, called the plan a “balanced budget for a stronger America” — and one that would “get this economy rolling again.” Democrats rebutted that the GOP numbers didn’t add up and called their policies wrong-headed. “People who are running in place today are not going to be moving forward under the Republican budget, they’re going to be falling back,” said Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland. The Republicancontrolled Senate is likely to approve its version of a budget by week’s end. The plans themselves are non-binding and do not require a presidential signature. Instead, once the House and Senate agree on a common approach, lawmakers will have to draft legislation to carry out the program that Republicans have vowed to follow in the wake of campaign victories last fall that gave them control of both houses of Congress. Still, House passage of a budget marked a significant victory for Speaker John Boehner and the GOP leadership, which have struggled mightily to overcome differences within a fractious rank and le. An equally notable second triumph appeared on the horizon. Legislation to stabilize the system of payments to doctors who treat Medicare patients is expected to clear the House Thursday, and Obama’s declaration of support enhanced its chances in the Senate. It includes a requirement for upper-income Medicare beneciaries to pay more for their coverage, a provision Republicans hailed as a triumph in their drive to curtail the growth of benet programs. There was nothing bipartisan about the budget debate, though. Republicans supported it, 228-17, while all 182 Democrats who voted were opposed. The House plan calls for $5.4 trillion in deficit reduction over a decade, including about $2 trillion from repeal of the law known as Obamacare. Nearly $1 trillion would be saved from Medicaid and CHIP, health care programs for the low-income, and $1 billion from other unspecified benefit programs. Another $500 billion would come from general government programs that already have been squeezed in recent years by deficit-reduction agreements between Congress and the White House.GOP-controlled House passes budget to erase deficits

In a typical transaction, the money you stand to gain from making smart moves — or lose from making poor ones — can be substantial, from 11 to 20 percent of a home’s value, according to the survey. Consumer Reports’ offers the following advice. Homebuying blunders Rushing into a deal. One of the more costly mistakes homebuyers make is agreeing to too high a price on a home. A related mistake is overestimating one’s knowledge of the real estate market. Take your time, go see lots of homes and get a good idea of the local price scale. Biting off more than you can chew. Don’t underestimate the costs of homeownership. It’s not enough to calculate the monthly mortgage. You also need to factor in your closing costs and all of the additional fees. Many of the fees are negotiable, such as the home inspector’s fee and your attorney’s fee. And find out what the current homeowner pays for utilities, taxes and other monthly costs. Failing to upgrade your credit score. To get the most favorable rate on a loan, you have to have a strong credit profile, and that means a credit score of at least 740, says Greg Mcbride, chief financial analyst for Bankrate.com. Don’t wait until the last minute to scrutinize your credit reports and make any necessary changes to improve your profile. Not shopping around for a mortgage. When shopping for that mortgage, sticking with your regular bank could be costly. Approach several lenders, including banks and credit unions. You can search for national deals on Bankrate.com. Skipping the home inspection. Be present during the inspection to learn about any costly repairs that might be needed and to get basic info on the home, such as where the electrical panel is and where you shut off the water. A home inspector can also point out repairs that will need to be done in the next few years. Seller slipups Overpricing your home. This is the most costly mistake, cited by 43 percent of surveyed agents. “If you price it too high, it will just sit on the market, agents will stop showing it and buyers will assume there’s something wrong with it,” says Jeanette Cook, a real estate agent in Burlingame Hills, Calif., a suburb of San Francisco. “You may have to drop the price far below what you think it’s worth just to entice people to look at it again.” Overpaying the commission. Unless your agent is a close relative or friend, he or she will charge a commission, or per centage of the sale price, and may even lead you to believe that the fee is inflexible. But, in fact, 63 percent of the real estate agents in Consumer Reports’ survey admitted that they negotiate their fees at least half of the time. Hiring the first agent you meet. Selling a home is one of the biggest financial transactions most people make, so you need to have someone you trust. Ask friends and family for recommenda tions and meet with at least three candidates. Check references from at least three recent clients. Neglecting to do a Google search for your address. Make sure nothing negative comes up, such as an old lawsuit or public records that have inaccurate information about your home’s number of bedrooms, say. Also check your home’s street view on Google Maps. Putting your home on the market before it’s ready. Don’t put the “for sale” sign on your lawn until it’s show time. With 92 percent of homebuyers using the Internet as part of their search, according to the National Association of Realtors, photos are key. Home-sale mistakes that cost you money NEW YORK (AP) — Investors dumped high-ying technology and biotech companies and sent the stock market down for a third straight day Wednesday. Major indexes drifted lower in early trading, following news that or ders for long-lasting U.S. goods sank last month. The selling gathered strength in the afternoon, with companies like Avago Technologies and Skyworks Solutions losing the most. Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Avalon Partners, a New York brokerage, said the market’s fall was driven by big investors selling some of their winnings before the rst quarter closes next week. The drop in factory orders also raised concerns that a slowdown in economic activity could continue. “A weak rst quarter could spill into the second quarter,” Cardillo said, “and that probably leads to a poor earnings season.” The Standard & Poor’s 500 index lost 30.45 points, or 1.5 percent, to 2,061.05. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 292.60 points, or 1.6 percent, to 17,718.54, while the Nasdaq composite fell 118.21 points, or 2.4 percent, to 4,876.52. It was the worst day for stocks since March 10, when speculation over the Federal Reserve’s plans to raise interest rates helped knock the S&P 500 down 1.7 percent. Jack Ablin, chief investment ofcer at BMO Private Bank, said he thinks it’s going to be tough for the market to sustain a strong run higher. Major indexes still trade near record highs reached at the start of the month, even though analysts expect earnings to shrink in the rst half of the year. That makes the typical stock look pricey. “We’re going to have a difficult time continuing to make new highs if the underlying economy isn’t following the direction of the market,” he said. “At some point we’re going to hit the inter section of reality and expectations.”US market indexes slump NEW YORK (AP) — Some of the most familiar names in ketchup, pickles, cheese and hot dogs are set to come under the same roof after H.J. Heinz Co. announced plans Wednesday to buy Kraft and create one of the world’s largest food and beverage companies. The deal would bring together an array of longtime staples in American kitchens, including Oscar Mayer lunchmeats, Jell-O desserts, Miracle Whip spreads, Ore-Ida potatoes and Smart Ones diet foods. The combination of the two companies — each more than a century old — was engineered by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and Brazilian investment rm 3G Capital, which teamed up just two years ago to buy Heinz. While shoppers are not expected to see any major changes, the creation of The Kraft Heinz Co. reects the pressures facing some of the biggest packaged food makers in the U.S. As consumers increasingly migrate away from popular packaged foods in favor of options they consider less processed, companies including Campbell Soup, General Mills and Kellogg have been slashing costs or striking deals to update their products offerings. The Heinz-Kraft deal is in many ways just the latest example of that, although Buffett noted that the two companies still have a strong base of customers. “I think the tastes Kraft and Heinz appeal to are pretty enduring,” he said in a telephone call to the business news channel CNBC. Still, the early plans outlined by Kraft and Heinz executives in a conference call Wednesday focused largely on the savings that would be achieved through the deal, rather than the potential for sales growth in North America. They said they expect to save $1.5 billion through moves such as combining manufacturing and distribution networks. James Angel, an associate professor of nance at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, said that will probably result in job losses. “Even though it is painful for the people involved, those resources will be freed up for other, potentially more productive, uses,” he said.HJ Heinz to buy Kraft

The man was cut free, and with the fence still piercing his mid-section was rushed by ambulance to Broward Health Medical Center. He survived and has remained hospitalized since the Sunday evening incident, Fort Lauderdale Deputy Fire Chief Timothy Heiser said Wednesday. “So many things could have gone wrong,” Heiser said. “It was really good teamwork. They got him off the fence fast.” The cringe-inducing episode was set into motion about 8:20 p.m. Sunday when the man tried to scale a 10-foot electronic rolling gate surrounding the police department’s parking lot, Heiser said. Because the Fort Lauderdale police records department is closed on Wednesdays, the incident report listing the man’s name and age could not be obtained for this article. When the man mounted the gate, he fell onto one of the 14-inch security spikes that line the top. The wroughtiron spike pierced the man’s crotch and exited through his buttocks, Heiser said. Fort Lauderdale firefighters who were on hand refueling a truck heard the man’s screams and then saw him impaled atop the fence. “He was hanging there with his legs on one side and the rest of his body on the other,” Heiser said. Before he tried to climb the fence, the man had told nearby police officers he was high on Flakka, Heiser said. Flakka is a fairly new street drug laced with heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and pyr rolidinovalerophenone (or PVP-Alpha), court records show. It induces paranoia, psychosis and extreme combativeness, drug experts say. “The only people I’ve seen on it are in the back of an ambulance or at the morgue,” Heiser said. “It’s just a nasty, nasty drug that turns people into nasty people and dangerous people.” First responders have been “seeing more of it,” Heiser said. “We’re trying to track it with police to see if there’s an increase in usage. We report every inci dent to Fort Lauderdale police.” The fact that he was on a drug does not answer the question of why he was trying to break into the police yard. The man remained conscious and rather calm throughout the harrowing rescue, Heiser said. Because the man was stuck atop an automated entrance gate that could be activated by the weight of a vehicle, a police officer clipped his handcuffs around the gate to prevent it from accidentally opening. “That was quick thinking,” Heiser said. “It very likely saved the guy’s life. Any sudden movement could have severed arteries or veins.” The crew next supported the man to ensure that his body would not move as they worked to cut free the section of the fence that was skewering his midsection. “They had to build two tables — one on each side — so he didn’t fall,” Heiser said. “Basically his mid-section was a fulcrum and any weight change on either side had to have been excruciating.” To ensure the circular saw used to cut the fence didn’t heat up the metal and burn the man, they wrapped ice packs and wet cool towels around it, Heiser said. With the fence still in him, he was placed on a stretcher and rushed to a hospital. “It was a very delicate ride to the hospital,” Heiser said. “You think it’s bad enough to have a fence impaled in you, but then if you don’t have people skilled enough and trained to treat you properly, you’re one sneeze away from possibly bleeding to death.”Police rescue man impaled atop gateBy TONYA ALANEZ and EMILY MILLER SUN-SENTINEL WRITERS | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATEHouse looks to hold down higher-ed costsTALLAHASSEE (New Service of Florida) — Following the lead of Gov. Rick Scott, a House panel Wednesday approved a bill designed to help hold down costs for students at state colleges and universities. The bill (PCB HEWS 15-01) received unanimous support from the House Higher Education & Workforce Subcommittee after little discussion. Among other things, the bill would remove part of state law that allows the university system’s Board of Governors to delegate tuition decisions in graduate and professional programs to trustees at individual universities. The bill would leave that tuition-setting author ity with the Board of Governors. The measure also would take a series of steps to try to rein in the costs of textbooks. As an example, it would require that textbooks and other instructional materials be adopted with enough lead time to help maximize the availability of cheaper used textbooks. Scott has made one of his top priorities the cost of higher education, including pushing a proposed sales-tax exemption for textbooks.Tampa residents, alarmed at surging gun violenceTAMPA (AP) — Police and neighborhood activists in Tampa say there’s been an alarming surge in gun violence. Twice as many people have been shot to death in Tampa in 2015 than in the rst three months of last year. The violence has included 15 homicides, compared with just seven in the same period last year. A small crowd gathered Tuesday outside Tampa Police headquarters for an anti-violence rally. Police Chief Jane Castor says there’s been a total of 164 gun crimes at this time last year compared to 235 this year, and homicides have more than doubled from seven to 15 over the same time period. The Tampa Bay Times reports that three teenage boys died in separate shootings in the last two weeks.Calls to hotline warned now-dead boy was abusedFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) — Child welfare ofcials were warned three times about possible abuse or neglect regarding a 3-year-old Hollywood boy whose body was found hidden last week in his father’s home. The Department of Children and Families released a report Wednesday revealing that someone called the child abuse hotline last year concerned that Ahziya Osceola had bumps and bruises and complained of a sore bottom. He was examined but a doctor couldn’t determine whether his bruised rectum was from constipation or sexual abuse. The child lived with his father and stepmother after his mother was arrested for child neglect. A DCF report says the child was found wander ing a hotel alone while his mother was passed out. His stepmother checked herself into a psychiatric ward Friday after Osceola’s siblings were taken from her home. An investigation continues.Man held on $1M bond in purse snatching caseGAINESVILLE (AP) — Bond has been set at $1 million for a 49-yearold accused of snatching a purse in Gainesville. Police say Garnet Mintz was already out on a $10,000 bond when he was arrested Monday. He’s accused of stealing a $1,500 purse from a vehicle. The victim told police she saw Mintz in her car and told him to leave. He ran, taking the purse with him. Police say she caught up with him. He threw her to ground, along with the contents of the purse. A police ofcer eventually caught up with Mintz, who was arrested on a robbery charge. The Gainesville Sun reports Mintz has faced more than 100 criminal cases in 30 years and has served six prison terms.Police: Dad drove into pond to kill familyKISSIMMEE (AP) — Police say a crash that killed a man, his girlfriend and their two young children late last year was not an accident. Kissimmee police said Wednesday that 25-yearold Ulysses Montero committed suicide when he drove his car into a retention pond on the Valencia College’s Osceola campus on Dec. 23. Also killed were 24-year-old Julie Lopez-Elias and their children, 4-year-old Julissa and 5-day-old Dlias.

The manager knew how Matt Andriese fared against the Toronto Blue Jays — he gave up two runs on three hits over 3 23 innings — but he had no idea how the young pitcher felt about his performance. “‘Is he happy right now? Is he going to smile?’” Cash asked the Rays’ third base coach, who managed Andriese at Triple-A Durham last season. “You can not read that face for nothing, man.” Andriese is among the group of pitchers competing for one of the vacant spots in the Rays’ opening day rotation, but you would hardly know it by talking to him.

The Musketeers are one of six teams in the Sweet 16 with 10 or more losses. The NCAA Tournament has never had so many teams with so many losses make it so far. Six of the regional seminalists have 10 or more losses, including three with 13. The reaction around college basketball has been a collective shrug. There simply are more opportunities to lose nowadays. That’s because teams are playing more regular-sea son games than ever, and top programs are trying to schedule mostly high-caliber nonconference opponents which can enhance their resumes for NCAA Tournament selection and seeding. “There was a time years and years ago where you’d feel like if you had 20 wins you’d get in the tournament,” North Carolina State coach Mike Gottfried said. “Now it comes down to who you schedule. You may lose some games because you’re playing a difcult nonconference schedule.

The Lemon Bay High School senior, who won the state 1A championship last season at 154 pounds, won the 169-pound class with a 645-pound total (a personal best) to help the Manta Rays win the county championship with 46 points. Charlotte High School took second with 36 points and Port Charlotte High School took third with 26. Marinola set a personal best in the bench press (345 pounds) and 300 pounds in the clean and jerk. He tried lifting 315 pounds in the clean and jerk but couldn’t quite manage it. “I’m aiming for a 675-pound total (at the state meet),” Marinola said. “I want to go 355 in the bench press and 320 in the clean and jerk.” Marinola hasn’t lost since he nished second in the state meet two years ago. He’s undefeated this season, winning easily in all of his meets so far. He’ll compete in the 154-pound division at the state meet again this season. Last season he won the state championship easily with a 625-pound total.

Dedrick retired the rst 11 batters before giving up her rst hit and never allowed a Lemon Bay runner to reach second base. “It was two teams battling it out who are two good teams, and a good pitching duel,” said Charlotte coach Greg Higgins. “From our standpoint, we left a lot of runners stranded that we need to score. But I was really pleased with our pitching and defense.” Dedrick didn’t strike out a batter, but only allowed ve balls to be hit out of the ineld all night as she defeated the Mantas for the second time this season. “She (Dedrick) is denitely a playmaker and she gets up for good teams,” said Higgins. “I wouldn’t say it was the best game I’ve pitched all year, but it felt really good,” said Dedrick. “I’m really proud of my whole team. We made plays when we needed to and we came out here to win tonight. My pitches were working tonight and that’s all I could hope for. They were going where they needed to go. I wasn’t always getting the corner calls, but when I did it was needed.” Lemon Bay’s Ashton Werden was almost as good, scattering ve hits over six innings, but gave up the only run of the game in the top of the rst inning. Kaylee Brannon hit a one-out double, advanced to third, and scored on Taylor Kirkus’s grounder to second.

Online: http://www.nascar.com SAN ANTONIO — Jordan Spieth has a couple of home games before the Masters. “I enjoy being able to drive my own car to these tournaments,” said Spieth, the 21-year Texan who lives in suburban Dallas. “I get to see a lot of friends and family who I don’t get to see a lot of the year. And then, at the same time, get ready for the Masters on a challenging track.” He will open play today in the Texas Open and also is playing next week in the Houston Open. “As a native Texan, I always like playing the Texas events,” Spieth said. “This event, in particular, gave me an exemption when I was in college. ... So, it’s a tournament that has helped launch my career and one that is close to my heart. I like being back here.” Spieth is coming off a playoff victory two weeks ago at Innisbrook. He tied for second behind Bubba Watson last year in the Masters and won the Australian Open and Tiger Woods’ Hero World Challenge in consecutive weeks late last year. At Innisbrook, Spieth beat Patrick Reed and Sean O’Hair with a 30-foot birdie putt on the third extra hole. “I really felt like it was coming,” said Spieth, a career-best sixth in the world ranking. “Just patient enough to pull it off. Nice to close it out on a made putt.” Spieth was 10th last year at TPC San Antonio. “He’s a superstar,” defending champion Steven Bowditch said. “He’s strong in every aspect of his game and will be a force to be reckoned with for the next 20-odd years. You break down his golf swing and you see he’s one best out here with his clubface control.” Bowditch won his rst PGA Tour title last year. The Australian closed with a 4-over 76 in windy conditions for a onestroke victory. Phil Mickelson is in the eld along with Dustin Johnson, Billy Horschel, Martin Kaymer, Graeme McDowell, area resident Jimmy Walker and Matt Every. Mickelson is winless since the 2013 British Open. Johnson is coming off victory March 8 at Doral in the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship. He played the course for the rst time Wednesday. “The golf course is great,” Johnson said. “It’s in really good shape. I like the course. I think it’s fairly tough. I think it will be a good week.” Every successfully defended his Arnold Palmer Invitational title Sunday. He made an 18-foot birdie putt on the nal hole for a one-stroke victory over Henrik Stenson. The top 50 in the world ranking after the tournament will earn spots in the Masters. Top-ranked Lydia Ko set for Kia Classic: Top-ranked Lydia Ko doesn’t want to get too far ahead of herself at the Kia Classic — a week before the first major championship of the LPGA Tour season. “I’m going to concentrate on this week first,” Ko said. The ANA Inspiration is next week in Rancho Mirage. “To play well in a major, you pretty much got to have your ‘A’ game,” Ko said. “Hopefully, if I have a good week here, I’ll bring a lot of confidence into next week. But two different courses. So you know, it’s hard to compare them course-management wise.” Ko has two worldwide victories this year, winning the tour’s Women’s Australian Open and the Ladies European Tour’s New Zealand Women’s Open in consecutive weeks. The 17-year-old New Zealander has 10 straight top-10 finishes and has broken par in her last 24 LPGA Tour rounds and 27 worldwide. She has six LPGA Tour victories and 10 worldwide wins in pro events. Ko will play alongside defending champion Anna Nordqvist and Lizette Salas in the first two rounds at Aviara Golf Club. Last year, Nordqvist won the second of her two 2014 titles. The Swede closed with her second straight 5-under 67 for a one-stroke victory.Jordan Spieth right at home in Texas Open GOLF: PGA TourLone Star native enjoys home state tour swingBy TIM PRICEASSOCIATED PRESS ORLANDO — Paul Millsap had 25 points and 11 rebounds and the Atlanta Hawks snapped a three-game losing streak with a 95-83 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night. Jeff Teague added 16 points, despite spraining his left ankle in the rst quarter. The Hawks trailed by 13 in the rst half, but outscored the Magic 2712 in the fourth quarter. Elfrid Payton led the Magic with 19 points and nine rebounds. Victor Oladipo and Nik Vucevic added 16 points apiece. Orlando had just ve turnovers in the rst half, but nished the night with 17. The Magic lost their second straight and have dropped eight of their last nine. Heat 93, Celtics 86: At Boston, Goran Dragic had 22 points and seven assists and banged-up Miami beat Boston. Luol Deng added 15 points for Miami, and Udonis Haslem had 12 points and 12 rebounds. Henry Walker and Tyler Johnson also scored 12 points apiece. Miami played without Dwyane Wade, Hassan Whiteside and Chris Andersen due to injuries, but bounced back quite nicely from Tuesday night’s 89-88 loss at Milwaukee. The Heat blew a 14-point lead in the final 6 1/2 minutes against the Bucks. Miami has won four of six and is seventh in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Jae Crowder scored 16 points for the Celtics. Nets 91. Hornets 88: At Charlotte, N.C., Brook Lopez had 34 points and 10 rebounds and Brooklyn handed slumping Charlotte its fifth loss in six games. The 7-foot center came into the game on a tear, having scored at least 26 points in each of his last three games, including 31 on Monday night against Boston.

The Sun /Thursday, March 26, 2015 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 week’s games. Michigan State and North Carolina have 11 each and Oklahoma has 10. The previous record for number of Sweet 16 teams with double-digit losses was ve, last year and in 1985 and , according to STATS. The only other time there were even two 13-loss teams was 2000. The NCAA has allowed teams to play as many as 31 regular-season games since 2006-07. Before that the maximum was 28. With conference tournaments, some teams now play 34 or 35 games before the NCAA Tournament. Other factors, ESPN analyst Jay Bilas said, are that high major teams are beating each other up in conference play, and premier programs are sought out for made-forTV nonconference games. Beating a heavyweight can help a lot, and losing to one might only hurt a little in the eyes of the NCAA selection committee. N.C. State (22-13), which plays Louisville (26-8) in Syracuse, New York, on Friday, used strong nonconference schedules to get off the NCAA bubble in 2012 and 2014. This season the Wolfpack played tournament teams Boise State, Wofford, Cincinnati and Purdue before losing twice to Virginia, splitting meetings with North Carolina and beating Duke and Louisville in ACC play. Xavier (23-13), which plays Arizona (33-3) in Los Angeles tonight, lost nine games in the Big East. That conference sent six teams to the NCAA Tournament, and Xavier is the only one still standing. “I think it’s great that the Big East has been able to test us with some really tough teams,” center Matt Stainbrook said, “and I think the fact that we’ve grown as a team together has made us really special at this point.” UCLA (22-13), which plays Gonzaga (34-2) in Houston on Friday, might be the most charmed of the 13-loss teams. The Bruins won their tournament opener over SMU thanks to a 3-point goaltending call on the nal play, and in their second game they drew a 14th-seeded UAB team coming off an upset of Iowa State. Double-digit loss teams meet in Syracuse on Friday when Michigan State (25-11) takes on Oklahoma (24-10). The Spartans lost to heavy weights Duke, Kansas and Notre Dame before they were beaten six times in the Big Ten. As for North Carolina (26-11), which plays Wisconsin (33-3) in Los Angeles tonight, there’s no shame in what it did against the nation’s second-toughest schedule.DEFEATSFROM PAGE 1 | COLLEGE BASKETBALL SCOREBOARD MenNCAA CONFERENCE RECORDS Through Sunday (Selections in parentheses) Co nference W L Pct.

First, the Wisconsin coach has the same man escorting him around that he did last year, when the Badgers won the regional in Anaheim. Then Ryan bumped into coach Sean Miller, whose Arizona team lost to the Badgers in a one-point overtime game to get to the Final Four. “I’m like, wait a minute,” Ryan said. “Weren’t we just doing this a year ago?” So Ryan feels right at home in Los Angeles, and he’s hoping Frank Kaminsky & Co. do, too. The top-seeded Badgers (33-3) take on fourth-seeded North Carolina (26-11) in a regional seminal tonight at Staples Center. The teams are meeting in the NCAA Tournament for the second time and the rst since 2006. The Tar Heels won both games. North Carolina hasn’t been this far since 2012, although the Tar Heels are 25-6 all-time in regional seminals. Their top task? Defending Big Ten player of the year Kaminsky, who leads the Badgers in scoring (18.4 points), rebounding (8.1), and eld-goal percentage (.556). “Very, very seriously is the way we’re going to try to deal with him,” Tar Heels coach Roy Williams said Wednesday. Carolina’s front line of 6-foot-9 Kennedy Meeks, 6-6 J.P. Tokoto and 6-8 Justin Jackson can’t match the 7-foot Kaminsky in height, but the 270-pound Meeks has nearly 30 pounds on “Frank the Tank.” Meeks sprained his left knee in the win over Arkansas that got the Tar Heels into the nal 16. He didn’t do much during their open practice Wednesday, but had limited contact during an earlier closed practice. Williams said if Meeks experiences any pain or swelling overnight, he wouldn’t play. Otherwise, he would be a game-time decision today.By BETH HARRISASSOCIATED PRESSBadgers have been in this far-ung spot before AP PHOTONorth Carolina head coach Roy Williams, left, talks with forward Joel James during practice, Wednesday in Los Angeles. North Carolina is scheduled to play Wisconsin today in the NCAA West Regional seminals. COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Tournament roundupODU advances at buzzerTrey Freeman banked in a running 3-pointer at the buzzer Wednesday night to lift Old Dominion to a 72-69 victory over Murray State in the NIT quarternals. The win puts the Monarchs (27-7) into the seminals at Madison Square Garden for the rst time since 2006. Jeffery Moss hit a 3-pointer for the Racers with 3.5 seconds left to tie it 69. Freeman took the inbounds pass and dribbled up the right side under heavy pressure, launching his runner just before the horn. Freeman, a junior guard, scored 25 points. The Monarchs’ leading scorer missed most of ODU’s second-round victory over Illinois State with an ankle injury. ODU took a 10-point lead with 3:39 to play but the Racers used a 14-4 run — capped by Moss’ 3 — to tie it. Cameron Payne led Murray State (29-6) with 23 points. Loyola Chicago wins CBI semifinal: In Chicago, Earl Peterson and Devon Turk both scored 15 points and Loyola Chicago beat Seattle University 63-48 in the semifinals of the College Basketball Invitational. Loyola (22-13) hosts LouisianaMonroe in Game 1 of the CBI’s bestof-3 championship series on Monday. Louisiana-Monroe defeated Vermont 71-65 to advance to the final. Peterson’s running one-hander from the right baseline tied the game 42-all with 5:46 remaining and triggered a 14-0 run for Loyola over the next 3:43. Peterson had six points in the run. Seattle, which led 34-29 with 12:10 to play, was outscored 34-14 down the stretch. William Powell had 12 points for the Redhawks (18-16) and Jadon Cohee added 10. The Ramblers haven’t been in any postseason tournament since the 1985 NCAA Tournament. It was Seattle’s first postseason appearance of any kind since 1969. Price to take over as Charlotte 49ers coach: Charlotte has hired Mark Price as its basketball coach, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the hiring hasn’t been announced. The 49ers have scheduled a news conference for today to introduce their new coach. The 51-year-old Price has spent the last two seasons as an assistant coach for the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets. He will replace Alan Major, who left the program earlier this month amid ongoing medical problems. Price played 12 seasons in the NBA and was a four-time All-Star. He has been an assistant coach for five NBA teams. Ex-NBA coach Musselman named coach at Nevada: Eric Musselman will soon add the college ranks to his long list of head coaching jobs. The former NBA coach has been hired at Nevada, pending formal approval today by the Board of Regents. Athletic director Doug Knuth said in a statement Wednesday that he plans to present a proposed five-year contract with Musselman to the state Board of Regents during a meeting Thursday in Las Vegas. Musselman will join the meeting by teleconfer ence from Reno. Hurley agrees to new contract at Buffalo: Bobby Hurley has agreed to a new contract with the University at Buffalo that will make him the Mid-American Conference’s highest paid men’s basketball coach. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the school has not announced the contract restructuring. Hurley will make more than $550,000 a season, the person said. The person said that while the sides have agreed on the deal, it has not yet been signed as the school and coach work out final details. The agreement was reached after the former Duke star point guard led the Bulls to their first NCAA Tournament berth in only his second year on the job.

Umpires—Home, Je Kellogg; First, Brian O’Nora; Second, Fieldin Culbreth; Third, Marvin Hudson. T— 2:36. A— 6,164 (9,300). “I just try to stay consistent with myself,” Andriese said after blank ing the Minnesota Twins for ve innings in a 2-1 win. “I try not to worry about all the stuff that’s going on. Obviously everybody knows there’s a competition going on, but I just try to go out there and try to not wor ry about that and stay consistent with myself.” The right-hander was plenty consistent at Hammond Stadium on Wednesday. Andriese needed just 75 pitches to cruise through ve innings, scattering three hits and a walk while striking out six. The Twins threatened twice, but neither amounted to anything. After giving up a leadoff double to Eduardo Nunez and a one-out walk to Aaron Hicks in the third inning, Andriese struck out Brian Dozier and got Eduardo Escobar to ground out harmlessly to second. And after Nunez hit a leadoff single and got to third base with two outs in the fth, Andriese again struck out Dozier. “I thought Matt Andriese was outstanding,” Cash said. “You just didn’t see many good, strong swings against him. “It looks like his pulse is extremely low. And to me, that’s a good thing. He made some good pitches, just kept pounding the zone.” As for him being quiet and reserved off the eld, reliever C.J. Riefenhauser said that’s just Andriese’s personality. Riefenhauser played 39 games alongside Andriese in Durham last year, and while he described him as down to earth and fun to hang out with, he also said “he does keep to himself.” Andriese is far from that way on the mound, though. Just ask the guy who caught him and a guy that used to face him. “The way he goes about his business is very mature,” said catcher Rene Rivera, who spent time with Andriese in the San Diego Padres’ farm system. “He’s growing up in his career. He knows what he has to do to pitch in a game, and he showed it today.” “You get that military attitude of, ‘I’m going to work,’” said outelder Steven Souza, who faced Andriese while playing for Triple-A Syracuse in the Washington Nationals’ farm system last season. “He’s a bulldog. He’s going to come after you. Great movement on his fastball. He utilizes a lot of location. Very crafty at what he does. You just knew you were going to have a tough at-bat.” “He’s reserved, but at the same time, he’s disciplined. And when you’re a disciplined pitcher and you know what you want to do, it usually ends up being a good combination.” Andriese joined the Rays prior to last season, coming over from San Diego in the trade that brought second baseman Logan Forsythe and Brad Boxberger to Tampa Bay. He won a team-high 11 games with a 3.77 ERA for Durham in 2014, and Montoyo said “he ended up being our best pitcher last year.” “He pitched great for us,” said catcher Curt Casali, who caught Andriese with the Bulls last season. “He was probably one of our more major league ready guys on the Triple-A team last year.” Casali’s assessment might prove true on April 6. Andriese is competing with Everett Teaford and 2014 Bulls teammates Nathan Karns and Mike Montgomery to hold the places of Alex Cobb (right forearm tendinitis) and Drew Smyly (left shoulder tendinitis) in the Rays’ rotation, and his credentials seem to get stronger each time he pitches; he has a 1.10 ERA in 16 1/3 innings this spring. If he keeps performing like that, Cash might get the opportunity to learn how to better read Andriese’s off-eld personality during the regular season. “I always just tell myself, ‘You always have to be ready,’” Andriese said. “You never know what’s going to happen. Especially at this level. I just come prepared and go about my business every day, and things work out weird sometimes. So I’m pretty happy with how things have been going.”Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com.ANDRIESEFROM PAGE 1 FORT MYERS — With inelder Nick Franklin ruled out for the start of the season with a strained left oblique, there’s room for another player to step into his role and share playing time at second base with Logan Forsythe. Tim Beckham — along with non-roster invitees Jake Elmore and Alexi Casilla — is one of the players who has a shot to ll that void, but the former top prospect is not going to start politicking for the job any time soon. “You never want to see your teammates get hurt,” Beckham said. “That’s up to the GM, that’s up to the manager. That’s out of my reach. I control what I can control. It’s as simple as that; control the controllable and go about my business every day.” Beckham has struggled at the plate so far this spring, going 5 for 33 (.152) with a double, three RBIs and a run scored through 13 games. Manager Kevin Cash admitted there’s some unknown with what Beckham could provide at the plate in the majors, but also that “you could argue he’s as good as anybody in the ineld defensively.” The 25-year-old has spent most of his career playing shortstop, but began playing more at second base last year after returning from offseason ACL surgery and said he’s “as comfortable at second, if not more comfortable, than at shortstop.” Cash said Wednesday that Forsythe would likely get the bulk of the playing time at second until Franklin returns — possibly sometime in late April — but Beckham has a shot to open the season as the Rays’ part-time second baseman and backup shortstop. “There’s a lot of baseball left,” said Beckham, who started at second base and went 1 for 2 with a walk in Wednesday’s 2-1 win over the Minnesota Twins. “I’m going to continue to work hard and try my best to have those quality at-bats and relax my mind, relax at the plate. Do what I know I’m comfortable doing. Once that comes into to play, I know that I can help this team win.” Bullpen day: Today’s game against the New York Yankees will be a bullpen day for the Rays, who have Kevin Jepsen scheduled to start and fellow relievers Ernesto Frieri, Brad Boxberger, Jordan Norberto and Kirby Yates scheduled to follow him. Cash said the idea behind it was to get some of the team’s relievers chances to pitch against opposing team’s starters, rather than to the reserves late in games. Injury roundup: Catcher Rene Rivera (left calf strain) returned to the lineup Tuesday after a five-game absence, hitting a home run in his first at-bat and finishing the afternoon 1 for 3. He’s expected to play again on Friday. Right-hander Alex Cobb (right forearm tendinitis) got a good report from the doctor on Tuesday, and Cash said he could possibly resume throwing this weekend. Left-hander Drew Smyly (left shoulder tendinitis) will throw his third of five scheduled bullpens today, though Cash said he will likely not be ready to pitch in a game until after spring training is over. Infielder Nick Franklin (left oblique strain) has been ruled out for opening day and will likely miss at least the first few weeks of April. Left-hander Jake McGee (offseason elbow surgery) completed his third bullpen session on Tuesday and will throw another on Friday. Left-hander Matt Moore (Tommy John surgery) will throw his next bullpen session on Friday. Right-hander Alex Colome (pneumonia) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session on Wednesday and will throw another on Friday. Right-hander Ronald Belisario (fractured left shoulder) will throw his first bullpen session today. Extra bases: Infielder Logan Forsythe and outfielder Brandon Guyer took six at-bats each in a minor league game, both hitting doubles. The Rays will hold “Community Day” prior to their home game against the Red Sox on Saturday, where they will recognize the Charlotte County Family YMCA and Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity with donations of $5,000 and a chance to throw out ceremonial first pitches. Both groups will remain in the concourse during the game to speak to fans about the work they do.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com.

Cosart targeted by MLB probe BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSMIAMI — Miami Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart is being investigated by Major League Baseball for online comments he may have made about gambling. Marlins spokesman Matt Roebuck conrmed the investigation in a statement Wednesday but declined further comment. The 24-year-old Cosart deleted his Twitter account Tuesday after screen shots of comments he purportedly made to a gambling expert were published on the social media site. It is a MLB rules violation for players or any other employees to bet on baseball games. A player who bets on a game his team isn’t playing in faces a mandatory one-year suspension. A player who bets on or against his own team faces a lifetime ban. The commissioner, at his discretion, can discipline a player for placing other types of bets with an illegal bookmaker. Rendon might miss Nationals’ opener because of sprained knee: In Jupiter, third baseman Anthony Rendon may miss the Washington Nationals’ opener against the New York Mets on April 6 because of a sprained left knee. Rendon hasn’t played since March 9. When he was scratched from the starting lineup the following day, manager Matt Williams said Rendon just needed a day off. But the problem has lingers, and Rendon underwent a second MRI Tuesday on his medial collateral ligament. Mets’ Wheeler has Tommy John surgery: In Tampa, New York Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler had Tommy John surgery, which likely will sideline him until late next spring. The Mets said team medical director Dr. David Altchek operated in New York to reconstruct the 24-year-old right-hander’s ulnar collateral ligament and repair the flexor pronator tendon. Wheeler was 11-11 with a 3.54 ERA and 187 strikeouts last year, when he threw a career-high 185 innings Cashman says A-Rod could be DH: In Tampa, New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Alex Rodriguez is making a case to be the team’s full-time designated hitter and Adam Warren has taken a big lead to become the fifth starter. Rodriguez, who turns 40 in July, is returning from a one-year drug suspension. A-Rod entered Wednesday hitting .286 (8 for 28) with two homers. Tigers 8, Marlins 4: In Lakeland, Tigers star Miguel Cabrera played the field for the first time this spring, doing fine at first base as Detroit beat Miami. Cabrera had been limited to desig nated hitter duty while recovering from ankle surgery. Cabrera made a diving stop on a hard grounder by former teammate Don Kelly and threw from the ground for the out at first. Blue Jays 5, Orioles 2: In Sarasota, looking to cement a spot in the Toronto rotation, Daniel Norris allowed one run in six impressive innings as the Blue Jays beat Baltimore.

Nicklas Bendtner took advantage of a defense that gave up two more late goals to score his rst international hat trick, and Denmark rallied to beat the United States 3-2 in an exhibition game at Aarhus on Wednesday night. “It’s very disappointing because it’s not the rst time we let a game get away from us in the last few minutes,” Michael Bradley said after his rst start as American captain. “It’s something that we’ve got to start to learn from.” Jozy Altidore scored in the rst half and set up former club teammate Aron Johannsson’s goal in the second. But Bendtner tied the score for the hosts in the 83rd minute and got the winner in the rst minute of stoppage time. ... After preserving a professional soccer team for Minnesota, Bill McGuire soon began to think bigger. He wanted to be in the major league. The desire was mutual. Major League Soccer formally awarded an expansion franchise to McGuire’s group of investors in Minneapolis with the expectation an outdoor stadium will be built in time for the 2018 season.TENNISAzarenka advances at Miami Open: At Key Biscayne, two-time Miami Open champion Victoria Azarenka easily advanced to the second round, beating Silvia Soler-Espinosa of Spain 6-1, 6-3. The 36th-ranked Azarenka, the 2009 and 2011 winner from Belarus, is playing in Miami for the first time since 2012. She missed the 2013 tournament with a right ankle injury and sat out last year with a left foot injury. American Jack Sock, also making a comeback after having surgery in December to repair a right pelvic muscle, advanced with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Go Soeda of Japan. Two American women also advanced to the second round. Christina McHale beat Romanian wild-card Sorana Cirstea 7-5, 6-4, and Alison Riske topped Mirjana LucicBaroni of Croatia 6-4, 6-0.AUTO RACINGJoe Gibbs’ son being treated for ‘brain function’ issues: Joe Gibbs Racing President J.D. Gibbs is undergoing treatment for “symptoms impacting areas of brain function,” which likely stem from a head injury suffered earlier in life. JGR did not reveal a specific diagnosis in a statement, but said Gibbs is undergoing treatment to manage symptoms that began with “speech and processing issues.” The 46-year-old is the oldest son of team owner Joe Gibbs, the Pro Football Hall of Fame coach who won three Super Bowls with Washington. JGR said doctors believe the symptoms are related to previous head injuries, but no specific injury has been identified.JUDICIARYJudge: Prosecutors to rest case against Hernandez soon: The judge overseeing the murder trial of Aaron Hernandez said Wednesday that prosecutors are about a week away from resting their case against the former New England Patriots star tight end. Testimony in the case began Jan. 29. Hernandez is accused in the June 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee. There was no testimony Wednesday, and Superior Court Judge Susan Garsh instead heard from prose cutors and Hernandez’s lawyers about pending issues in the case — among them, the testimony of Alexander Bradley, a former Hernandez friend. Bradley has sued Hernandez, saying he got into an argument with Hernandez after leaving a Florida strip club in February 2013 and was shot between the eyes and dumped in an industrial area.

Messina had a personal best. The Manta Rays came through with numerous second and third-place nishes to help clinch the team championship. Charlotte gained rst places from Elijah Mack at 238 (605 pound total), Alec Eisaman at 119 (205 pound total), Trystan Beasley at 154 (460 total) and Chase Shepard at 183 (575 pound total).

It’s frustrating when we just can’t nd a hole and can’t get runners on base. And then when we get an opportunity, we’re not doing anything with it. You’ve got to execute when you get the opportunity, and we did not. We couldn’t even push one run across.” The Mantas fell at just one night after a dramatic, last inning district win over Hardee on Tuesday night. “Sometimes it’s hard to come back after an emotional win like last night, but the best teams do it, so you’ve got to nd a way to do it,” said Pinkham. “If they want to be considered a good team, then they’ve got to nd a way to do it.’CHARLOTTE 1, LEMON BAY 0Charlotte 100 000 0 — 1 6 0 Lemon Bay 000 000 0 — 0 3 2 Julie Dedrick and Kendall Chavarria.

Records: Charlotte 11-4 Lemon Bay: 8-7DEDRICKFROM PAGE 1 PUNTA GORDA — As Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer was addressing Charlotte High School’s baseball teams Wednesday afternoon, Tarpons coach Lavell Cudjo asked him what he thought of the team’s home stadium. Archer looked around. “It’s great,” he said, rattling off the features he probably dreamed of during his own high school days. Cudjo smiled. “We try to remind them they’re blessed,” he said. That was the literal truth on Wednesday. Archer’s visit coincided with a donation of $4,800 worth of equipment to the Charlotte baseball program from Good Sports, a non-prot linked with the Tampa Bay Rays. Good Sports’ main mission is to donate sports equipment to areas which need it. Among the items Charlotte received were batting helmets, bases, pants and catching equipment. A batting screen is also on the way. A visit from the Tampa Bay Rays’ opening day starting pitcher was neat, too. Archer gave a short talk, stressing the importance of hard work and academics and staying away from alcohol and drugs. Much of Archer’s message probably had been heard before, maybe from Cudjo. But the players paid rapt attention. “(It means) even more than when it comes out of their parents’ mouth, even if its the same exact thing,” Archer said. “Sometimes you need to hear it from an outside source and you need to hear that it’s not an easy life in general.” Archer even opened up the discussion to a quick question-and-answer session, but the players largely stayed quiet. That was a mild disappoint to Archer, who never had the experience of talking to a major-leaguer while he was still in high school. “How often is a major league anything – whether it’s a lawyer, the owner of a newspaper company, whether it’s a doctor or a major league athlete — how many times are they going to be standing in front of you, saying ask me a question,” Archer said. “That’s why I was trying to get them to talk.” But Cudjo thought the message sunk through to his players, who were about to hop on a bus to a Sarasota Classic game against Palmetto. “I wish we could spend all day with him,” Cudjo said. “You can’t put a price on that. His knowledge of the game, his knowledge of what he’s been through with these young kids. We need it.”Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.com.By ROB SHORESPORTS WRITER PREP BASEBALL Charlotte team presented with baseball gear worth $4,800Archer visits TarponsSUN PHOTO BY ROB SHORETampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer chats with Charlotte High School baseball coach LaVell Cudjo before addressing the Tarpons on Wednesday. LEMON BAY GIRLS ON VERGE OF DISTRICT TITLESEBRING — Lemon Bay’s girls’ tennis team all but locked up the District 2A-11 title on Wednesday, advancing all five of its singles players to the finals and at least one one doubles team to the semifinals. Sarah Lown led the way, advancing to the No. 1 singles final. The Manta Rays racked up 17 points following the first two rounds of singles and hold a four-point lead over Hardee (13), followed by Sebring (12) and Cape Coral (11). In the boys’ competition, Lemon Bay advanced its No. 4 singles player to the final. Most of the doubles competition was slated to be completed today, along with the singles finals, which begin at 9:30 a.m.— Jeff Gardenour, Sebring News-Sun PHOENIX — The NFL’s dullest play, the extra point, appears to be headed for some changes, perhaps signicant ones, for the 2015 season. While team owners didn’t vote on any extra-point proposals Wednesday, there was so much discussion and interest in potential changes that the issue will be a main focal point for the next set of league meetings in May. “There’s a clear movement to wanting to change and change it this year,” said Rich McKay, co-chairman of the competition committee and president of the Falcons. McKay’s committee will “develop alternatives and be ready for a potential vote” in two months in San Francisco. Among the possibilities are moving the line of scrimmage back for PAT kicks; placing the ball on the 1-yard line for a 2-point conversion; eliminating the PAT kicks entirely, requiring teams to run a play from scrimmage; and allowing the defense to score, as in college football, if the ball is turned over on a 2-point try. McKay described the discussions as “lively, with lots of ideas ... it’s time to make this a football play.” Coach Zimmer ‘fully expects’ Peterson to be with Vikings: The Minnesota Vikings don’t plan to trade Adrian Peterson and fully expect him to be with the team for the 2015 season. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer was emphatic about that at the NFL owners’ meetings. “We’re good to go. I mean, he’s under contract and we expect him to honor it,” Zimmer said. “I think when he goes into the Hall of Fame, he’s going to want to go in with the jersey that everyone remembers him as. That will be as a Viking.” Peterson’s contract has three years remaining, with a $12.75 million salary for 2015. Garrett says Hardy must do ‘right things’: In Phoenix, Dallas coach Jason Garrett said Greg Hardy must “do the right things from the beginning” to be part of the Cowboys. Garrett said the team did an extensive examination of Hardy’s background before signing him. “Like with any other player, you have to do your research about him and talk to people,” Garrett told reporters during the NFC coaches’ availability at the NFL owners meeting on Wednesday. “We had extensive talks with people going all the way back to high school.” The talented but troubled defensive end was convicted in North Carolina last July of assaulting a female and communicating harass ment, but the case was dismissed after Hardy reached a settlement with the victim. Wilson to be honored with statue: In Orchard Park, N.Y.,late Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson will be honored with a lifesized statue erected at the stadium that bears his name. The decision to commemorate the team’s founder and Pro Football Hall of Famer member was the brainchild of new Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula, and Wilson’s widow, Mary, the team announced. The statue will serve as a centerpiece in a newly established Founder’s Plaza at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The announcement was made exactly a year after Wilson’s death. His estate eventually sold the franchise to the Pegulas in October. Kim Pegula referred to Wilson as an “icon” in saying the statue will honor the legacy of the man who established the Bills in Buffalo as part of the American Football League in 1959.Extra point likely to get makeover NFL NOTEBOOK Minnesota’s Zimmer thinks Peterson will stay a VikingBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSAP PHOTONFL competition committee chairman Rich McKay, left, who is also the Atlanta Falcons president and CEO, gives a nal report on the rules changes, as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell listens in at a news conference Wednesday in Phoenix.

I know I am. Tomorrow is when the WaterLine Annual Guide to Charlotte Harbor Fishing publishes. If you’re a WaterLine subscriber, you’ll be getting a copy at your door. If you’re not — well, that ain’t good. The annual guide has proven itself over the years as a product with a very long shelf life. People don’t read and chuck it — they hang on to it. It’s a reference guide, with information that is useful to local anglers all year long. If you’re not a subscriber, I strongly suggest you call customer service today — right now — at 941-206-1000 and see if they can get you on the list for this publication. I’m also excited about tonight. This will be the third meeting of the Charlotte Harbor Fisheries Forum I’ve attended, and based on what I saw last time, I think people are revved up to focus on how we can resolve some of the problems our shery (and our shermen) are facing today. I’m told Charlotte County Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch will be in attendance — a welcome presence, since some of the things we’ve talked about would require new laws. This forum is open to the public and anyone who cares about the future of Charltte Harbor and its sheries should be there. It will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the community room at Laishley Park Marina (120 Laishley Court, Punta Gorda). Speaking of new laws, participation in the Gulf Reef Fish Survey becomes mandatory April 1. The survey is for anglers shing in the Gulf of Mexico from a private boat, who plan to harvest, possess or land any of the following reef sh: Red and vermilion snapper; gag; black and red grouper; gray triggersh; greater and lesser amberjack; banded ruddersh; and almaco jack. If you’re a resident age 65 or older, you don’t need a license to sh in Florida — but you still have to register for the Reef Fish Survey if you’re planning on doing any bottom shing. There’s no cost involved. If you haven’t signed up yet, call 888-FISHFLORIDA (347-4356). Anglers for Conservation will host a Hook Kids on Fishing program April 11 at Fishermen’s Village in Punta Gorda. This program teaches kids about the fun and responsibility of shing. Organizer Theresa Ellershaw is looking for a few volunteers to help out with teaching the kids the ropes. If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Theresa at tellershaw@aol.com or 321-302-6260. For more info, see this week’s Outdoor News Bulletin Board. I’ll see you there. What’s goin’ on? FROM THE PUBLISHER’S DESK JOSH OLIVE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR JOSH: I have been buying WaterLine for years now while I am in Florida. I am a Canadian who has been coming to Florida since 1967 for vacation and now wintering there. I live on shore of Lake Erie do a lot of shing there, Lake Ontario and many smaller lakes and rivers in province of Ontario. I am one of those snowbirds that Capt. Ralph and Robin mentioned in last week’s edition and that you and Mike discussed on today’s radio show. I listen weekly to that also and hope to receive through the Internet when back home. You two do a great job. Please keep the show going. I also have listened to Mike talk at the Charlotte County Boat Show and am currently taking Capt. Ralph’s shing course. Don’t hate those of us from Wisconsin, Alberta, Nova Scotia or Rhode Island or anywhere else “north.” We certainly don’t like the trac, parking, line waits for dinner and so on either. We all have to be patient. It is the price we pay for having a paradise near the southeast bottom of this continent. We have to share. The businesses, home and condo owners and the Florida Department of Revenue, among others, can count their money. In a three-month stay here, my wife and I dump about 12 to 15 grand into the economy for accommodations, food, entertainment, taxes and, of course, a shing license. I get an annual with a snook stamp even though I’m usually down for only three months. I catch sh but 99 percent of the time release them. I support the Charlotte Harbor shery and nearshore waters and want to see it sustained. I do eat a lot of sh, but mostly do so in many of the great restaurants in the area. So far this year, our expenditures are $33,000 as I bought a boat from a local dealer. I have to repeat what an incredible shing paradise you have here in this estuary and Gulf waters. I know some of you realize that and respect it. I just want to thank all of you at WaterLine, the other guys in boats or on piers, and the bait and tackle shops from Englewood to Punta Gorda for their help. I have been shing all my life, but I have so much to learn, especially down here. The other day a friend and I were out in Gasparilla Sound. We caught and released many sh (lots of bonnetheads) and counted 11 dierent species in the day’s to tal. That is amazing! My education in the salt world is just beginning. I’ll be back next year to continue gaining knowledge, grumble at trac and waiting in line but overall, having fun and enjoying life. One small complaint: I heard today that the annual is coming out next week to only subscribers. Not fair, Josh. I have the annuals from the last two years. I’m not sure how I got them but I treasure them and would sure like to get my hands on the new edition. — Jim White JIM: As one of the people whose job depends on you and folks like you visiting Florida, it would be irrational for me to hate you guys. Tourists are great, and we truly appreciate you coming to Southwest Florida. What I don’t like is tourist season. We get too many visitors from January to April and not enough from July to October. If the number of people here were more stable instead of having such massive uctuation through the year, I’d nd it easier to deal with — and I’m sure a lot of other locals would as well. Yes, I know it’s all about the weather. Nobody wants to come for the months when it’s 88 degrees at dawn and the humidity stays between 95 and 100 percent, plus there are those pesky hurricanes. Still, you really should come down for at least a few days and see how dierent this town is when the snowbirds have own. Regarding the radio show, you should be able to listen live from 9 to 10 a.m. on Saturdays at IHeart.com, or to the recordings at RadioWaterLine.com. This Saturday marks our rst anniversary of the WaterLine Radio Hour. Mike and I have been having a lot of fun with it and I don’t see any reason for that to stop. And to the WaterLine annual: It’s one of the benets of being a WaterLine subscriber, which I believe every reader should be. I’m in process of guring out how to send out subscriptions by mail, so all of our snowbird friends can take a little piece of Florida home with them. In light of the fantastic letter, I’ll send you a copy of the annual. — Josh Olive, WaterLine PublisherIf you have a comment or question for WaterLine editor Lee Anderson, email him at Editor@WaterLineWeekly.com.Letters are welcome on any outdoor-related subject, but we do have some rules.

Spanish mackerel action is good over deeper grass on jigs or spoon. The trout bite is good at Placida; sh Lil Johns in about 4 feet of water. The bigger sheepies have moved oshore, but there are still piles of smaller ones around the piers and jetties. Bass and bluegills are getting ready to bed up in the ponds and freshwater canals. A scattering of very big cobia are still being caught. There are lots of grunts at about 10 miles eating squid. Mangrove snapper are biting in Boca Grande Pass. There’s a front moving through on Friday and the shing should be good just before it gets here. Sheepshead are starting to leave, but there are still some at the south end of the trestle. Spanish macks are thick on the beaches from the jetties to south of Boca Grande Pass. Pompano are good in the surf, along with some whiting and eating-size black drum. There have been lots of good redsh reports; they’re eating shrimp and topwater popping plugs. A number of tarpon have been hooked this week; most are in the 30to 50-pound range. The Novak and Tremblay are producing lots of sheepshead. Kingsh 20 pounds and better are whacking slow-trolled blue runners in Boca Grande Pass. Big AJs, red grouper, ag yellowtails, jumbo mangrove snapper and cobia are all biting o Englewood, plus a couple sailsh have been reported. The bite’s as good as you’ll ever see it right now. Snook are hot. They’re biting on ies, live bait, jerkbaits, poppers or whatever you prefer. Look for sh along points and channel edges. A few are already on the beach. Lemon Bay is producing some nice trout. Black drum are moving up and down Charlotte Harbor. The best place to see them is out in the 20-foot hole, where there are thousands from 20 to 70 pounds. The sheepshead bite has been amazing at the Venice jetties. There are still a large number of redsh, snook and jacks being caught in the Myakka River on large shrimp and plug-type lures. Grouper, snapper, cobia and sharks have been on re within 10 miles of the shore. Try sardines or squid for bottom shing, and the sharks will eat just about anything. Soak some stinky cutbait in Lemon Bay for slob redsh. FISHING TIP OF THE WEEK: A lot of anglers who are relatively new to fishing in salt water make the same mistake: They use hooks that are far too large. Really, you should be sizing your hook to your bait and the fish you plan to catch. Think about the bait first. You go to great pains to keep your shrimp or whitebait lively and frisky, because a more active bait generally draws more attention from hungry predators. Why, then, would you want to weigh your bait down with a giant hook? Rather than being able to swim freely, your bait will be anchored in one spot. For use with live bait, you are usually best served by the smallest hook that will hold the fish. And that can be a surprisingly small hook. Under most circumstances, a well-made No. 2 hook is more than sufficient for redfish up to about 10 pounds. If you’re fishing around heavy structure, you may need to go up a size or two because you have to use a stronger drag setting. Even big, powerful fish like sharks and tarpon can be taken on relatively small hooks. A 4X strong 7/0 hook is plenty for even the biggest tarpon and for sharks up to a couple hundred pounds.

There are good numbers of over-slot redsh eating cutbait on the ats near cuts and oyster bars. A few big trout have been caught early in the day. Good numbers of pompano have been in the surf just o the sand; try tipped or untipped jigs. Bonnethead sharks are biting at Alligator Creek Reef. The black drum are biting OK, but sheepshead action has really dropped o. Tarpon are showing themselves, but few have been caught. Cobia and kingsh are scattered oshore. The amberjack bite has been pretty consistent in 50 feet and deeper. Red grouper are moving in closer to shore, and the snapper bite has been very good on the nearshore reefs. Snook are ready to go, and it’s hard to beat Mother Nature’s candy: Whitebait. Look for moving water and maybe a bit murky. The best bite is along the ICW where the bait is. The redsh action is decent on the east and west walls; Bull Bay has the best bite. You can also nd snook in the same areas. Trout are stirring in the ICW, and some real gators are coming out of Pine Island Sound. Snapper are consistent around rockpiles and in the canals. Pompano and ounder are on the outside of the east wall bar. Sharks and cobia are scattered around the Harbor. Tarpon are starting to bite around Redsh Pass and the Sanibel Causeway. Sheepshead, snapper and porgies are biting well on the reefs within 5 miles of shore. Red grouper are doing well in 80 to 100 feet of water. Cobia and amberjack are hanging around the wrecks. Spanish mackerel are all over, from Alligator Creek Reef to 5 miles oshore. Inside, sh the outgoing tides. In the Gulf, don’t be surprised if you nd some kingsh mixed in. Mangrove snapper are biting at the canal mouths and Alligator Creek Reef; use live shrimp or whitebait. Lots of little sharks are all over the Harbor, especially the south end. You’ll also nd a few larger ones and some cobia. Black drum are gathering in the 20-foot hole. Pompano are coming from the lower part of the west wall, or look for bonnetheads there. Tarpon are showing in the ICW and Boca Grande Pass, plus in the river mouths. Mangrove snapper are crazy in Boca Grande Pass and on the reefs out to 15 miles. Spanish and king mackerel are biting from 4 to 25 miles out. Amberjack and red grouper are good at 30 to 40 miles. A few cobia and some bigger sharks round out the Gulf action. Lots of over-slot snook up to 45 inches are coming from the Myakka Cuto, the west wall, Turtle Bay and Pine Island Sound. Look on the edges of mangrove islands, sh live bait. Big redsh are hiding under the mangroves with snook. Toss in whitebait, big threadies, shrimp or soft plastics. Good keeper trout are hanging around the grass and oyster bars. Spanish mackerel are thick in the bay and o the beaches. Tarpon are eating macks in the Sound and would probably take catsh tails up the river. Monster jacks have been cruising the canals, eating anything in reach. Red grouper are moving in closer, so don’t go out too far — 70 to 80 feet is plenty. Yel lowtail and mangrove snapper are biting, plenty of chum is the key. There are cobia hanging around the reefs; try feeding them pinsh. Kingsh are eating slow-trolled live baits or expensive lipped plugs. Blackn tuna reports are coming in from 70 feet. Permit are on the reefs and wrecks and will eat small blue crabs at rst light. Too much fun. ROBERTFISHIN’ FRANK’S Charlotte Harbor 941-625-3888 JEFFCAPT.

Page 9 March 26, 2015 FOOL ‘EM TWICEBehold the dusky dottyback, con artist of the coral reef. Bright, lithe and no longer than your index nger, these Australian reef-dwelling sh may look innocent. But they are actually lethal predators and masters of the art of disguise. Capable of changing color to resemble the types of sh they prey on, they hide themselves among a school of their prospective victims and then swoop in to devour the unsuspecting young. “It’s the classic wolf in sheep’s clothing scenario,” said Cambridge University research fellow William Feeney, who studies the dottyback. Unlike other animal mimics, dusky dottybacks are capable of changing color to imitate two dierent types of sh, yellow damselsh and brown damselsh, depending on the kind of school that surrounds them. “This is the rst time that anyone has been able to show a species that is capable of mimicking multiple things, looking like one sh one day, looking like another sh next week,” said Feeney. Their disguises made the dottybacks particularly lethal: A dottyback that was the same color as the sh around it was two to three times more successful at hunting, consuming as many as 30 juvenile damselsh a day.NAPLES LOOKING AT FISHING BAN(WINK News) — The city of Naples may ban shing on several bridges because it could be a distraction to drivers. City leaders also say there’s really not enough room along the road for people to sh and its a hazard to boaters who pass by underneath. They say in the past, shing on the small bridges has caused trespassing issues and damage to private and public property. The city will hold a public hearing on the ban at the next city council meeting April 1.IGFA MUSEUM MOVING; IGFA STAYSThe Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum, housed in a distinctive, steel-sheathed building along Interstate 95, will soon leave Dania Beach for new digs in Springeld, Mo. But the 30-foot leaping swordsh, so visible to passing motorists, is here to stay. The hall of fame and museum has been nestled against Bass Pro Shops, west of I-95 and south of Grin Road, for 16 years. It’s operated by the International Game Fish Association, and honors famous anglers, novelists Ernest Hemingway and Zane Grey among them. But the $32 million museum couldn’t reel in enough visitors, even in sh-crazy South Florida. So it’s splitting from the IGFA and hooking up with a wildlife attraction in Missouri. The IGFA and its impressive library, which boasts the world’s largest collection of shing lms, photos and publications on recreational shing, is staying. “A lot of people think we are closing up the building and moving it to the center of the country. And we’re not,” said Rob Kramer, IGFA president. The nonprot’s headquarters will continue to operate from the building’s third oor even after the museum, which occupied the rst oor, moves out. LET’S NAME ONE AFTER YODAMeet Peckoltia greedoi, a newly named species of South American suckermouth armored catsh. And if its name calls to mind a character from a galaxy far, far away — well, that’s the point. The sh was named for Greedo, the bounty hunter killed by Han Solo in “Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.” Jonathan Armbruster, biological sciences professor and curator of shes for the Auburn University Museum of Natural History, said he was trying to name the sh when his colleague, arachnologist Chris Hamilton, said it looked a little familiar. “Chris looked at the specimen and said ‘that looks like that guy from Star Wars,’” Armbruster said in a university news release. “After a little prodding, I realized he was talking about Greedo. We then knew what the name had to be. The Peckoltia greedoi does bear a striking resemblance to Greedo.”NO SHARK FOR YOUA Florida sherman thought he caught the big one, but his sh tale turned out to be a legal nightmare. Now, he has no sh and a lesson learned. Onlookers lashed out at the man who, for more than an hour, battled a 6-foot shark, which he hooked at the end of the pier at Jacksonville Beach. After tossing his reel o the pier to a friend down to the sand below, the sherman was confronted by police, who told him to release what he thought was a bull shark, in fear of someone getting hurt. “I was told by law enforcement and lifeguards to not touch the shark, and to let it go,” said the sher man, who asked not to be identied. He explained he was hoping to sell the meat from the shark for $15.99 a pound, but instead, he said he cut the line at the hook, and let the biggest sh he ever caught go. “I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time — to catch some thing of that size, to be able to land it and keep it of my own — and I denitely feel that was kind of taken from me,” the man said. Police issued the sherman a verbal warning for endangering the public, rather than ning him $500 for the misdemeanor crime. Lifeguards pointed out that some piers permit shark shing, but Jacksonville Beach does not.OUTER BANKS FISH KILLCOROLLA, N.C. — A large number of dead sh and a dead dolphin have washed up on the beaches of the Outer Banks over the past few days. Locals have reported that the stretch of dead sh runs for approximately three miles in the Corolla area. Some have questioned if a sonic boom recorded by the U.S. government, at six kilometers southeast of Nags Head at 4: 24 p.m. March 16, had anything to do with the sh deaths. The North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Division of Water Resources manages sh kill activity in the state. Environmental senior specialist Jill Paxson with the Division said she hasn’t seen the sh kill nor gotten reports of it, but said they are typically caused by one of two factors. One is netting from commercial shermen who are permitted to discard certain sh that they are not targeting. These sh are then sometimes brought ashore by the winds. The other common cause is a water quality event with a drop in dissolved oxygen. This can happen after a heavy rain with a lot of sediment, or a localized algae bloom.HEY, I RESEMBLE THAT REMARKGive a man a sh and he’ll eat for a day. Tell a man one of your long, pointless shing stories, and he’ll never bother you again.

Page 10 March 26, 2015 A sure sign of the approach of spring in Southwest Florida is the arrival of hordes of Spanish mackerel. A few of these brightly colored, fast-swimming sh can be found in the area all winter, but the spring run brings huge schools of mackerel. They usually arrive soon after the water temperature along the Gulf beaches climbs to approximately 68 degrees. That benchmark was reached a few weeks ago, and, as expected, Spanish mackerel began to appear almost immediately. Good numbers of mackerel are currently pillaging schools of bait along the beaches and in the passes, and some sh have begun to move inland into Charlotte Harbor. Spanish mackerel are fairly easy to catch, when you nd them you can usually catch a bunch of them, they put on a really good ght when they’re caught on light tackle, and if they’re handled correctly they’re very good to eat. You’d think that with all these shining attributes, they would be considered a premier gamesh, but in Southwest Florida they are often overlooked. This is probably because the mackerel runs occur at just about the same time our shing turns on for snook, redsh, tarpon, sharks and other very popular and high-prole species. There are few sh that can match the rst sizzling run of a just-hooked Spanish mackerel on light tackle. If a mackerel gets up a head of steam, your drag will sing as line melts o the spool — but to experience this exciting moment, you need to match your tackle to the sh. Spanish mackerel are not large sh, with few of the specimens caught in this area exceeding 5 pounds and most falling under 2 pounds. Think light — 8to 10-pound spinning tackle is just about right. If you’re a y sherman, you’re in for a special treat if you can get on a bunch of mack erel. The rst time a skyrocketing mackerel leaps head-high and looks you in the eye with your y clenched in its teeth, then zips o all your yline and half your backing, you’ll become a lifelong mackerel fan. Catching mackerel is not dicult, but nding mackerel to catch can be challenging. Spanish mackerel are hyperactive sh that never slow down, always zipping around in search of prey. This means yesterday’s hotspot (or a hotspot from 5 minutes ago) can be empty of sh now. This is why many anglers hunt for mackerel by trolling. This method isn’t as much fun as casting with articials or free-lining live baits, but it’s a great search technique. The bars on both sides of the Boca Grande ship channel, any of the oshore articial reefs, the Bokeelia bar, the Cape Haze bar and the Alligator Creek articial reef are all great places to nd mack erel, but they can appear just about anywhere oshore or in the bay. Savvy anglers watch for working seabirds or signs of bait being crashed at the surface, or for the leaps of feeding mackerel which often launch a few feet into the air as they chase baits. Simple lures such as small spoons or jigs are very eective on mackerel. It’s best to stay away from lures with treble hooks. Aggres sively striking mackerel can usually be hooked very eciently on single-hook lures. Fly guys will nd that sparsely tied streamers such as Seaducers or Clouser minnows are great mack erel lures. For live baits, whitebait works great, but many anglers are surprised to learn that Spanish mackerel also love live shrimp. There is a debate among mackerel sh ermen as to the need for wire leader. It is true that if you sh for Spanish mackerel without a wire leader, you will sometimes have your line bitten o by their extremely sharp-edged teeth. However, it’s also true that if you use wire leader, you will not get nearly as many strikes. The use of wire is a personal prefer ence, but I think that at the end of the day you’ll catch more sh without wire if you’re willing to donate a few lost rigs. Spanish mackerel sometimes get a bad rap as to their edibility. I think there are two reasons for this. First, when Northeasterners hear that we’re catching mackerel, they often think of the Boston mackerel or tinker mack erel that are caught along the New England coastline — sh that are much more oily and dark-eshed than our Spanish mack erel. Secondly, the eating quality of Spanish mackerel does suer if they’re not handled correctly. They should be iced promptly upon capture, lleted immediately upon arrival at the dock, and eaten as freshly as possible. Spanish mackerel that have been kept in the fridge for a few days, or frozen and later thawed, are not nearly as good as those eaten soon after capture. Cooking is easy: Place the llets skin-sidedown on a sheet of tinfoil, coat them with lemon butter, sprinkle on black pepper, and broil just long enough to cook through. Be careful to avoid the most common seafood error — overcooking — and you’ll enjoy a wonderful meal. Let’s go shing!Capt.

Page 12 March 26, 2015 Photo providedSnapper are smart sh, but if you can get them drunk on food, you can make them dumb enough to catch.Spring is ocially here and it’s getting nice and warm again. This is the time of year when our resident mangrove snapper that have reached breeding size start to leave the canals and make their way toward the deeper waters of the Gulf to spawn. We always have a lot of snapper in the Harbor year-round. They grow up here. Most of the sh we see inshore are small, from 4 to about 10 inches. There are certainly bigger ones living in the estuary, but the larger ones aren’t dumb. Most have been caught once or twice and have learned exactly what a hook is. But as they begin feeling all spawny, they gather together in schools and compete with one another for food, so they are a bit easier to catch. The spawn coincides with the return of massive school of baitsh. Glass minnows, whitebait (scaled sardines) and threadns are starting to show up all over the Harbor and in the nearshore Gulf. Large numbers of them can be found around the reefs, both inside the estuary and just oshore. Alligator Creek Reef is great this time of year, and a much shorter run from Port Charlotte or Punta Gorda. The key to catching bigger snapper consistently is to make them stupid. This is why chum is your best friend. By dispersing the smell of food into the water, you can drive the sh into a feeding frenzy. Normally wary snapper will gulp any chunks of food they nd, without taking the time to make a close inspection. The pre-made frozen blocks are great, or you can make your own by mixing tropical sh food, play sand and menhaden oil. Also I take frozen sardines and dice them up to about thumbnail size, tossing a handful over every few minutes. You want them to be feeding and ready to grab anything, but not fed so well that their bellies are full. If you do it right, it’s not unusual to see the snapper come up all the way to the surface. Even when they’re chomping any scrap of food that drifts past, they can be leader shy. I use 4 to 6 feet of 20-pound uorocarbon. An Owner 2/0 inline circle hook (to be legal) and a No. 3 splitshot complete the rig. The bait drifts down slowly and naturally, the leader is all but invisible, and the hook can be mostly hidden in the chunk of meat. For bait, use a piece of something that’s in the chum: Cut sardine, half a whitebait or a chunk of threadn will all do the job. If you don’t want to sh Alligator Creek Reef, Boca Grande Pass is another excellent place to catch snapper right now. Chumming is not going to work here because of the strong current. Drop your baits along the southern edge of the pass in about 30 feet of water and just drift. Expect to use 2 or 3 ounces of lead to keep the bait close to the bottom, and be ready to get snagged a lot. The hassle is worth it because the snapper in the Pass are consistently 12 to 15 inches — real good sh for being so close to shore. You’ll also catch the occasional grouper. Actually, snapper are going to be popping up all over. Cape Haze Reef, the phosphate docks and the Placida pier should all start seeing better numbers and sizes over the next week or two. If you like the open Gulf, they’ll soon be moving out there for the actual spawn. The heavy chumming described above can be used in water as much as 80 feet deep, though it takes a good bit more of it to produce a chum cloud that reaches all the way to the bottom. But being able to catch these sh on light tackle is way more fun than needing heavy-duty gear to pull them away from the rocks, plus you won’t lose as many to the Goliaths. Snapper are a lot of fun to catch, but the big draw is the pile of llets. Smaller sh are best treated like pansh — dressed and cooked whole — but the bigger ones will provide ne llets that are a favorite of many sh eaters. Just remember, it’s not a freezer-lling contest. There’s not much worse than having to throw out a bunch of freezer-burned llets. It’s better to take only what you need for now. Besides, that gives you an excuse to go shing again.Robert Lugiewicz is the manager of Fishin’ Frank’s Bait & Tackle, located at 4425-D Tamiami Trail in Charlotte Harbor.

Page 14 March 26, 2015 I do hate to continue on our problems, but they appear to be forcing us to educate ourselves and get involved. I see special-in terest lobbyist groups want to change the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act and now the Gulf states are asking to take over shery management of red snapper. I agree we have problems, but when one side pushes their self-serving “solutions,” it’s not going to work in the long run. We will be weaker and never work out answers that we all can live with. Power promotes its own growth, not compromises. The only way to resolve any issue is to get the user groups to sit down and learn to respect and trust each other and work together. We need to go back to our roots. Let’s lock qualied representatives — people who can put what’s right before their personal gain — in a room together and make them stay until they agree. Just like the Constitu tional Convention: No A/C, no fancy motels to go back to, just bunks and the same food for all. Better not allow guns either. Seriously, I’m not inventing anything, just recalling what actually worked to create our special Constitu tion and country. Back to shing. We caught a few very big king mackerel last week. These sh were pushing 50 inches. I smoked one for sh dip and we released the rest without putting them in the boat. One helpfully cut the leader at boatside for us; the other I was able to unhook while in the water with a long dehooker. Please be careful around these toothy sh. I’m using large blue runners for bait. Sometimes my clients look at the bait and back at me with that “what are we doing?” look. The questions stop when the reel starts screaming and they feel the power of a smoker king not happy to be hooked. The Spanish mackerel are usually easier to catch. The easy way is to troll spoons or jigs. I prefer to use a 40or 50-pound uorocarbon leader, knowing I will lose some lures to sharp teeth. We get so many more bites it’s worth the lost lures for the extra action. Larger lures usually catch bigger sh, but you should choose your lure size based on the size of the minnows the sh are eating. When macks are eating glass minnows, try tiny spoons to match the hatch. Frequently we do better with a weight or planer to reach down into the water column. The metal planers vary in size, depending on how deep you want to go. You will want heavier gear and rod holders to sh them. If sh are striking on the surface, sh up top. Watch for diving birds to locate feeding sh. They are looking for scraps; minnow pieces left by savage macks streaking through schools of ‘em. Watch close for sh slicing through the baitsh schools, or skyrocketing as they jump to grab minnows. Look close and many times you can observe a minnow balanced on their nose! Pat Ford even got a photo of this with a king once. Jigs can also be cast while drifting when you discover concentrations of sh. Kingshing can be done with lures also; just step it up big time for these larger sh. We use larger spoons or jumbo lipped lures. I like the MirrOlures. They have lifelike nishes and a wiggle action that entices bites. Note that spoons and lures work best at dierent speeds, so do not mix these. Natural baits can be trolled eectively if you acquire the skill to rig them. We used to drift or anchor and enjoy the smaller kings on Wild Willie jigs. Whatever bait you’re using, wire leader is suggested for big toothy kings. You have many choices and plenty of sh. It’s common to pick up a cobia while targeting kings. We have plenty of both mackerel species, so eat all you want. It’s great to have recovered species to enjoy. Just don’t waste food sh. Ice is critical for food sh, especially any mackerel. Carry plenty and do not let sh lie on your decks. You don’t need the extra clean-up or slippery mess. Be careful of sharp teeth while cleaning them; dead sh can still hurt you. They are still work to clean, and most friends want their free sh cleaned! Speaking of good eating, the shrimp are leaving Charlotte Harbor now if you remember how to dip them from the lights with a long-handled net. This is fun without a sunburn and ne eating. I had some for dinner tonight. Wild-caught shrimp and fresh mackerel — I’m dining better than any king these days.Capt. Van Hubbard is a highly respected outdoor writer and shing guide.

Page 16 March 26, 2015 WaterLine photo by Cayle WillsBarb and her redsh wearing (almost) matching smiles.It’s not very often that I get to write about my own adventures out into the world of shing. Maybe because I’m always so busy taking other people shing I would have to say that is the case because my wife actually booked a charter with me. That’s how busy I’ve been. My own wife has to book me in order for me to take her shing. I know, it’s sad — I’m a terrible husband. And between boat shows and tent sales, she deserved a day on the water. We jumped in the boat and headed out of Laishley Marina with the intention of running to Devilsh Key in the search of whitebait. Marker 2 has been a cross between a circus and course in anger management for the past two weeks, and there hasn’t been much bait there anyway. But I did make a pass around the marker with the graph running to see if there was anything there. Fishnder, sonar, bottom machine — whatever you would like to call it. The rst one I ever ran had paper in it. A little pen went back and forth on the paper and drew the bottom and sh on the paper. Hence graph. There seemed to be a good number of baitsh there, but I couldn’t tell if they were good whitebait or glass minnows. They were packed too tightly to tell. I had the wife chum while I prepped the castnet. Yes, I made her chum. It was her trip, so she could help! After a few minutes, I threw the net and had half a livewell full of bait. I knew where we were going, chumming wouldn’t be eective, so I didn’t need that much bait. However, always have a plan B. So I threw the net again and easily lled the livewell. I had bait. I didn’t have to run an hour to get it. The fog was lifting. I didn’t get in an argu ment at Marker 2. All in all, it was shaping up to be a great day. So we headed to my favorite cut on the west wall. Lately I’ve been catching snook in there on the incoming tide. Because we got bait where we did, I was there two hours early. The good news was I wasn’t going to have to worry about someone being there. The bad news is that the sh weren’t there either. This place had snook stacked dozens deep three days before. Now it was a ghost town. Barb did manage to catch a beautiful trout, though. It had a 100-pound braided steel cable hanging out of its mouth and someone else’s hook down its throat, so in the livewell it went. After losing a large percentage of our important bodily uids to a no-see-um frontal assault, we decided to head elsewhere. Else where was going to be Poacher’s Cut. You can always count on snook to be in Poacher’s Cut on an incoming tide, right? Right The rst thing Barb hauled in, on her rst cast, was a 24-inch redsh. Umm that’s not a snook. Oh well, at least the trout could have company in the well. Then she proceeded to catch six beautiful mangrove snapper in a row. The smallest one was 12 inches. I did manage to catch a few undersize snook. One was actually sitting on the bottom right under the front of the boat. He was just laying there looking up to me as if to say, “Excuse me, but I’d like one of those tasty greenbacks if you don’t mind.” Who am I to not oblige? Lying there, he looked a touch over legal size, but catching a snook is catching a snook. He chased down and walloped that greenback. After a short ght, he taped out at 24 inches, so back into the drink for him. Poacher’s Cut takes continuous chumming to keep the sh interested. The current there sweeps things away so fast that you have to have them spun up and looking for more food to really be productive there. It turned out to be a good thing I went for the extra throw of the net. Always have a plan B. Barb asked me on the way home if I was angry she caught all the sh. I told her I wasn’t the least bit angry. It was a good day. She caught a bunch of sh for dinner. I’m sitting here while I write this eating redsh, trout and snapper with a grin on my face.

Serves 8. — Recipe from www.justseafoodrecipes.comA clip-n-save seafood recipe provided by PLANTATION BROILED COBIALast column we talked about the history of snipers and ended up in the Vietnam era, the time of Carlos Hathcock and his exploits. Today’s snipers have weaponry far rened from those days, including the Barrett .50-caliber ries in bolt-action or semiau tomatic. If you’ve never seen or red one of these, let me tell you it is one heck of a big rie. With today’s optics, they are making shots at distances seemingly incredible. But hold on a minute. Hathcock was a pretty crafty guy and very mechanically inclined. Growing up on a farm, he had to x stu instead of just going and buying something new. He decided to do a little experimenting with the old .50-cal machine guns popular through two world wars (aectionately known as “Ma Deuce,” ocially the Browning M2 A1 machine gun). Carlos took one apart in the motor pool and welded up some brackets and braces so that the thing could be shoulder-red. He mounted an old Redeld scope on top with some brackets that he had attached and converted the trigger mechanism so they would re semiautomatic instead of full auto. That means one shot for each pull of the trigger. If you’ve shot one of these, you remember what the trigger pull is like: About 3 inches long before it goes bang. Well, he changed all that on this particular rie. Anyway he took it into the bush and in a fairly little-known action made the longest kill shot of the 20th century on a North Vietnamese ocer at roughly 2,500 yards. The “White Feather” was quite a soldier and had many skills that raised a lot of hell with the VC. Many modern-day snipers have recorded higher total kills than Hathcock, but a lot of these fellas had a much higher rate of opportu nity in urban warfare and even in the mountains of Afghanistan. In Chris Kyle’s book he mentions this fact quite often — when opportunity presented itself, he and his cohorts would take out 20 or 25 enemies in one morning. Hathcock hunted in the bush and the jungle where shots were hard to nd. But being the stalker hunter he was, he found them. As far as I’m concerned, the White Feather was the best there ever was. In today’s modern theater of operations, the guys doing the shooting have a pretty wide choice of weaponry American snipers AT THE RANGE BILLY CARL AP le photoA sniper team.

Page 19 March 26, 2015 Page 19 March 26, 2015 to choose from. Actually, it’s not usually the choice of the individual shooter — most units or agencies have a particular weapon that they like the best. For instance, the FBI’s hostage rescue team generally uses a highly modied Remington 700 built by their own people and their own shop, usually ring the very powerful .308 cartridge. The actual bullet would usually be a 168-grain Nosler boat-tail hollow point. The jeweled trigger on one of these guns is supertuned to break at exactly 2.5 pounds of pressure. When the round leaves the barrel, it will be traveling around 2,700 feet per second. The Army has liked the M24 rie (also a version of the Remington 700) which has served them well for quite a number of years. It has an eective range of about 800 meters. It and most of the other popular ries of today used by the good guys shoot a 7.62mm bullet. I think the Remington 700, with all its variants and guns modied by the dierent depart ments and services, is probably the most used sniper rie today. A close friend of mine, Bob Jake, served as a scout sniper in Vietnam. After the war he was sent to Parris Island as a scout sniper instructor, so that would give you an idea of his qualications. Like most of the guys who have walked the walk, he doesn’t talk a lot about it, but occasionally when he and I sit down at his place in Tarpon Springs over a couple of good strong drinks we reminisce a little bit. He managed to secure an early M40 A3 Remington sniper rie. When he dragged it out to show it to me one night, I could see it was in pretty rough shape. When he nished up after the war, he didn’t really want to think about it and it just got put away until now. His rie is an extremely special M40. It has a bull barrel on it that weighs about 11 pounds and is chambered in .30-06 with a 1:10 twist in the barrel. It has a custom Monte Carlo stock on it but no fancy scope. Instead it uses what some of the Marine Corps used in ‘Nam: An aperture or peep sight made by Lyman. It has knobs for windage and elevation adjustment mounted on the rear aperture of the sight. I had never seen one like it. The gun itself weighs in at almost 15 pounds without any ammo. That’s one heavy puppy, and I sure would hate to tote it around the bush all day. I took some time and had it all reconditioned as a favor to my good friend, who has done so much to help me and my wife in our attempts to learn how to successfully show our Labrador retriever. Bob and his wife Mary have three AKC Champion and Grand Champion yellow Labradors that are as good as they get. Well the art of being a sniper is an interesting and challenging area. One thing to remember: When a sniper gets down on a target, he has to remember a thing called “cold zero.” Guns shoot dierently when they’re warmed up, but he is probably only going to get one shot and his point of aim had better be pretty darn close to his point of impact. This is what’s called cold zero and if it’s not perfect it may be the last one he shoots. Dangerous business.

Page 20 March 26, 2015 Page 20 March 26, 2015 Maybe I should just be a guideHow many of you have ever hired a guide to take you out shing? There is nothing better than nding a person who can take you to new waters and put you on sh. I may take this business one step further and hire myself out to do this for tournaments. It is becoming painfully obvious that anyone in the back of my boat can catch bass, but I can’t. Another tournament has come and gone, and Bartz’s Guide Service has been in full operation mode. Once again, I took a new partner with me —Brett — and he caught all the bass, while I sat in the front of the boat and became increasingly frustrated. As you know, my wife Missy is my usual partner in the tournament trail we sh. She was unable to attend this past weekend due to our daughter participating in the State Cup soccer tourna ment. By all counts, I should have gone to the soccer tournament and let Missy and my daughter’s boyfriend Brett take the boat to the shing tournament. We were shing Lake Walk-in-Water, my favorite lake in Florida. Missy and I have caught more big sh and more sizable limits out of those waters than most other lakes combined. No matter what time of year, what type of weather, I can catch them from this lake — up until last weekend. We started out on the south end of the lake. I like a particular line of reeds. I cast the bait in, slowly retrieve it from the reed line and wait for a bass to crack it. More often than not, I have a limit in the rst 90 minutes of the tournament. We did this for hours before Brett nally landed a bass. After aming out on my reed line, I ran to the canals to see if we could nd some bass spawning in the backs of the canals. We didn’t get any hits there either. I decided to head to the top of the lake, even though the wind was blowing right in on my favorite spots up there. We struck out there as well. We had one sh in the boat and it was around 11 a.m. by now. I told Brett we were going to head back to the calm side of the lake and just start working. We shed the front of a reed line with no positive results. I saw some lily pads tucked up by some matted vegetation on the back side of the reeds. As I made the turn with the trolling motor to set the boat up, Brett cast a swimbait over my shoulder to the front of the boat. He was rewarded with a 4-pounder that we really needed. Then I explained to him about casting in front of me and that he shouldn’t let it happen again. Not that I was upset — I was happy to have the sh because I wasn’t catching anything anyhow. After working the area thoroughly and coming up empty again, I opted for one last move. We had about 90 minutes to sh, so I went to the far set of canals that get a little less trac. We idled all the way to the back of the canal before we started shing. I nally had one pick my bait up, but it was swimming right at me. I waited patiently before slam ming the hook home and it didn’t slam home. My guess is that it was a gar because I had no worm and felt no hook being driven into the mouth. While I was doing this, Brett made his rst cast and caught a small keeper. Three bass in the boat and none of them caught by yours truly. About 20 minutes later, my wife called. Now we have a running history that when she calls, I catch a bass within ve minutes of answering the phone or hanging up. Wouldn’t you know it, I still had her on the phone when I got a hit. This time I set the hook and reeled in a bass that was maybe 9 inches long. Back he went. I explained to my wife what had been going on and after the laughter, I politely told her I had to go. We worked our way up the canal and got no more bites. We had just enough time to run to the next canal and try this one more time. Brett managed to catch one more bass from that canal (stop laughing, you knew he would catch it and not me) before we called it a day and headed in for the weigh-in. Because we, or should I say Brett, managed to catch a couple decent bass, we ended up in 8th place. So one of two things can happen next: I either hire myself out for tournament shing, expecting the back boater to catch all the bass, or I simply sell it all. I do enjoy golf and maybe that could ll the void on the weekends and those days that I take to the lake now. The jinx I seem to be carrying around has got me at rock bottom as far as tournament shing goes. Ever since I volunteered to be the weighmaster I’ve done poorly in our tournaments. I should be thankful, though — I wouldn’t touch a sh all day unless I got to weigh in everyone else’s. Truthfully, I would never quit shing. If anything, it has made me more determined to gure out what I am doing wrong and x it. I have to believe that once I get on a roll, it will be the roll of a lifetime. Kissimmee is on the horizon, and it may just be the lake for me to get my shing compass back to pointing north.Greg Bartz is a tournament bass sherman based in Lakeland.

Page 22 March 26, 2015 Page 22 March 26, 2015 PRWC photoBaby pelicans sure are funny-looking.Finally! Pass the cigars out. Peace River Wildlife Center’s resident brown pelicans usually build nests and breed in November and December. Last year our rst pelican chicks hatched on New Year’s Day. This year, our recal citrant parents started much later and their rst chicks hatched in early March. We have experienced a high mortality rate in previous years with the newly hatched chicks and have found a little intervention helps them to thrive. With the injured parents unable to nest where they would naturally be safer from predators and less adept at traversing the nests, the rst few nights of a hatchling’s life can be a dangerous time. These neonates are brought into the hospital and placed in incubators overnight for the rst few days of their lives. In the morning, they are taken back to their nests and their mothers resume their care. Once the babies are about a week old, they will stay in the nesting area, just behind the pelican pond at PRWC’s educational display area. Fun fact: While the pelicans are nesting, we don’t clean the area where the nests are located as thoroughly as we normally would so as to not disturb the birds. So that wonderful smell is not from lack of attention on our part, but due to our greater diligence in deference to the new families. OK, maybe that “fact” is not so much “fun” as “funk.” The tiny pink alien-looking hatchling begins life by pecking his way out of the egg. He uses his egg tooth to pip a hole in the widest part of the egg then rotates his body to cut the cap o of the shell. By the fth day of his life he turns purple and looks even more like an extra from “Men in Black.” Fluy white down will begin to emerge on the rump around day 10 and cover the body by day 25. The juvenile brown plumage will replace the down, starting at the scapulars, by day 30. Interestingly, at this point the pattern of the feathers resembles a grayish-brown heart on the back of the downy white chick. By the time the juvenile is 70 days old, he will have acquired his complete juvenile plumage. Unable to hold his head up, the hatchling initially thrashes his head from side to side to eat pre-digested sh regurgitated by both parents onto the nest. (PRWC has a great video of one of our head-start hatchlings eating chopped sh on our Facebook page, for those of you able to access it.) As he gets more coordinated, he will reach into the parent’s pouch to intercept the sh being regurgitated. By the time he’s ready to leave the nest, the edgling will weigh more than an adult bird. The increased mass acts as a stored energy source while the youngster learns how to forage for himself. As the weeks pass, our hatchling will start to get stronger and more independent. He will emerge from the nesting area to explore his surroundings. By one month, he can begin to experiment with ight. Most pelicans begin to leave the nest permanently at three months of age. The PRWC babies eventually discover that they can follow the visiting healthy pelicans and y out of the open air enclosure during the day. Initially they will spend a few minutes soaring over Charlotte Harbor. Eventually they work their way up to spending one and then many nights away from the Center. Before long, the older edgling, or “teenager,” will y back in to our pelican pond only occasion ally at feeding time, sometimes with a friend or two in tow. They scarf down as many sh as they can, then rush back out to more important tasks. Any parent of a teen knows the drill. I wonder if pelicans suer from empty nest syndrome, or if they are thrilled that housekeeping services will resume once the kids are gone.Peace River Wildlife Center is a nonprot organization, dedicated to the care, preservation and protection of Charlotte County’s native wildlife since 1978. They are open seven days a week year-round, including holidays. Tours are oered from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. PRWC receives no government funding and relies entirely on private donations.
